7:47 pm
shifted and qatar has grown more self-reliant. but what caused the rift between the g.c.c. countries is there and insights and can the gulf ever be the same again the siege of qatar on a just zero we here to jerusalem bureau covered israeli palestinian affairs we cover the story with a lot of internet we covered it with that we don't dip in and out of the story we have presence here all the time apart from being a cameraman it's also very important to be a journalist to know the story very well before going into the fields covering the united nations and global the policy for al-jazeera english is pretty incredible this is where talks happen and what happens here matters. in afghanistan billions of dollars of international aid have been donated to girls' education but where has the money gone when east meets girls desperate to learn and asks why is the system
7:48 pm

7:49 pm
grievances behind them threatening to cut them and spoil it in the international cattle as foreign minister rejects saudi arabia's threats over a russian missile system as the nation marks one year of blockade. iran turns up the pressure on the twenty fifteen year clear deal going to the u.n. with plans to accelerate the early stages of uranium enrichment plus. just fifteen minutes we've seen four bodies bowl poll out there's not a lot of hope for survivors fears the death toll could rise from guatemala's biggest volcano eruption in decades. the u.n. human rights office is calling on the u.s. to stop separating migrant children from their parents the trumpet ministration announced on may the seventh that it would begin separating all families detained at the border trying to cross into the united states without documentation the
7:50 pm
united nations says detaining migrant families and separating children at the southern border goes against international law the u.s. should immediately halt this practice of separating families and stop criminalizing what should it most be an administrative offense the u.n. emphasized quote detention should be the last resort for those escaping countries where rampant violence would give them the right to international protection. cateye insists it won't back down a year into an unprecedented the blockade imposed by saudi arabia the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt they accuse the gulf nation of supporting terrorism charged has strongly denied he spoke to catalyze foreign minister says these government won't make compromises and in particular on the latest reports of threats of military action by saudi arabia. who first formed just with us make it very clear that.
7:51 pm
the purchase of. any military equipment is a sovereign decision which no country has. anything to do with so there is no legitimacy believe this behind this letter and threatening and violating the international laws by writing all the international norms and. most importantly it's violating the. g.c.c. charter which is the countries of the g.c.c. should not launch an attack against each other so we believe that this letter has nor any legal basis to justify. any action we have been subject to a unilateral measure which was taken by by the saudis unfortunately as reckless behavior from what do you make of the saudi claim that it would disturb the balance of power it represents an escalation for qatar to obtain the s four hundred says well it's unfortunate that they see this as destabilisation because
7:52 pm
other option is not representing any threat for the saudis but what most importantly we have to look at the behavior of the saudis since the past year when we see the actions how it's going in yemen or what they have done with the prime minister and the recently. the president of france himself he said that he saved the country he said the region from a war by helping in reasoning the prime minister of lebanon so this is something that they have been continuing as a pattern in their behavior according to the information you have do you believe this report in the press that saudi the saudi king really made this threat do you think it's credible world we are seeking for a form of confirmation from the french government and have you received any response one of they said response. should be to more. if it's confirmed what would your response be to the saudis we are going to respond
7:53 pm
legally by. the response of a country that this is not violating international law and as a threat for our country which is not acceptable by the international community do you need to take this cut the need to take any defensive military steps in light of this reported thrill we are going to take the all the necessary action to defend our country but much like the world what do you count words in this is first of all this is not there is nor any serious military threat out of this but it's the way it's been used to justify. or to create any disturbance in the region is just unacceptable so. is going to treat this. the same way they have we have treated the illegal blockade we are gong to seek or the international fora to make sure that this behavior is not repeated will come to go ahead and buy
7:54 pm
the s. four hundred missile system or are you a tall rethinking that in light of these reported threat. may made all the options open for its defense for its defense procurement so we are seeking the best quality of to defend our country and we have all the options open for this. so it's possible that you may not need to buy the s for how this is and what your service is subject to the evaluation of the military people it's not a decision which will be taken in light of that a letter of the letter that that threat has absolutely no bearing no political bearing on the decision on whether to. remain independent country that's protecting its independence this is would not be subject for any compromise nation sake a closer look at the s. four hundred air defense system one of the most capable in the world it was introduced into the russian military in two thousand and seven and the main reasons
7:55 pm
why it so feared is down to its detection and interception capabilities its radar is able to spot aircraft and missiles similar taney asli to a range of six hundred kilometers it can then shoot down the incoming threats from four hundred kilometers away and while it's never been tested in combat its makers say the s four hundred can even target low flying cruise missiles and stealth aircraft which most other defense systems cannot go about it takes a look at what cattles done in the past year to combat the blockade. it has not been an easy year for qatar but for now protests from all over the world fill up store shelves cranes other most visible sign of the huge push to build mega projects in time for football's world cup in twenty twenty two but a year ago on the fifth of june during the fasting month of ramadan qatar is work
7:56 pm
up to and president of crisis saudi arabia the u.a.e. behind rein and egypt cut off diplomatic ties with qatar and imposed a land sea and embargo the blockade in countries accuse the qatari government of sponsoring terrorism accusations doha strongly deny it attempts by the emir of kuwait and regional leaders to and the diplomatic feud have made no progress so far unfortunately we don't see any credible indicators to suggest that there will be a solution in the near future i think there have been serious at them so in the past serious efforts invested to broker this crisis and to reach an agreement but unfortunately the parties are still stuck in their positions and unable to move forward with a solution of the four arab countries were hoping to see the blockade isolate
7:57 pm
internationally but what followed was a qatari diplomatic offensive led by shared i mean been hammered thirty who met world leader as his country signed major arms deals with friends it's ali the u.k. and an agreement with the u.s. to combat terrorism financing. in april the emir met president donald trump in washington d.c. the u.s. leader had qatar as a force of stability in the region and trump who also. saudi arabia's crown prince behind. around the same time expressed concerns about the fallout from the crisis it's a very unstable region and the gulf has always been the most stable part of an unstable region and this crisis has kind of thrown this region into a quagmire that it didn't have to be and i think the troublous treasure realizes that you know at least we have to provide one pall of stability and the center of
7:58 pm
gravity of the arab world in general has been the gulf in recent years so why the region there in crisis there is something that that had to be avoided at all cost. trump has invited the g.c.c. leaders to meet in the u.s. in the hope of finding a political solution but that invitation has been delayed a the blockade in countries insist no talks will take place until qatar meets their demands alleges iraq. kuwait has tried to mediate in the gulf crisis shell joins us from kuwait city where is the mediation process now and thoughts on how to get it going again. well jane unfortunately there hasn't been a breakthrough made in terms of actually trying to solve reaching a solution to this crisis we are marking one year now since it began however there are several milestones within that mediation process that the eighty's and others
7:59 pm
will point to that shows some sort of progress not least in the sense that the kuwaitis were able to avert this crisis from becoming a diplomatic one and transforming it into a military one the kuwaiti emir himself spoke of how his government and the efforts of his leadership managed to ensure that there wasn't an invasion or wasn't some sort of military attack on qatar so maybe that's the positives that has come out of the kuwaiti intervention the negatives or at least we can say with the lack of success in terms of actually trying to bring them all about to one table that is the three g.c.c. countries saudi arabia the united arab emirates i'm behind on one side and qatar on the other side that is what people are frustrated about as far as the qataris are concerned they have always responded with their willingness to sit down unconditionally to talk the other three countries say well they'll sit down but only if qatar meets conditions or something the even kuwait's in. the other
8:00 pm
g.c.c. countries see is an attempt to dictate negotiations in their outcome before they even take place having said that the kuwaitis and i've spoken to some officials over the past couple of days here are not convincing cope there are still continuing so the foreign minister has been going to several of the g.c.c. countries in recent weeks and they've also been receiving emissaries and other representatives of the governments in the past couple of days including the from minister of qatar just a couple of days ago there is a sense however jane and this is another interesting thing among some people in kuwait that maybe actually they will also be targeted by these blockading nations because what we've seen in the past couple of months because kuwait has tried to insist. on being a mediator and insist on being neutral in this the saudis in the u.a.e. actually wanted everybody to be in support of them so we've seen an attack on certain kuwaiti figures within the saudi and morality media that's something that's
8:01 pm
kept people wary here but in terms of mediation the government says it will continue to strive to find.
