just. a year as possum's the start of the blockade. qantas foreign minister talks to al-jazeera about the impact of the crisis on regional politics. and how his country is coping with it. and hundred forty one on the. u.s. and british companies have announced the biggest discovery of natural gas in west africa but what to do with these untapped natural resources is already a source of heated debate nothing much has changed they still spend most of their days looking forward to for the dry river beds like this one five years on the syrians still feel battered or even those who managed to escape their country
haven't truly been able to escape the war. it's been one year since its neighbors imposed a blockade on qatar by land sea and air. a move that shattered the region's geopolitical landscape alliances have shifted and qatar has grown more self-reliant . but what caused the rift between the g.c.c. countries is there and what insights and can the gulf ever be the same again the siege of. just zero. feeling the heat over mass hold donald trump is under pressure from his closest allies before the g.
seven summit in canada. this is a live from doha also coming up. a grand entrance for a close friend china welcomes russia's president vladimir putin. south africa's former president jacob zuma back in court for a second time accused of fraud racketeering money laundering and weapons deal. crowds gathering that near the barrier fence between. despite warnings to stay away . the leaders of g seven nations are gathering in canada for what could be the most tense meeting in get is us present donald trump was recently imposed steel and
tariffs affecting all the others in the group of industrialized nations and spotting a backlash america first approach has led to several disputes with not to mention his polarizing stance on the iran nuclear deal and climate change john a hundred reports from quebec city where the meeting will be held. inside and outside the g. seven summit disruption has replaced diplomacy on the streets demonstrators are descending on québec city where canada's leaders intend to avert a repeat of the two thousand and one summit of the americas where these streets erupted in riots this time nine thousand police are taking no chances even national assembly is shut down if it is bad. get pretty nasty. to good. shopkeepers have boarded up buildings as the first protesters filled the streets. the first demonstration of the g.
seven began peacefully and it turned into a march as you can see there were speakers people eight baguettes and hundreds of people demonstrated peacefully but when the police came they showed that they were prepared in case there was trouble. concerned that they've completely secured the summit site at leaving demonstrators to gather one hundred forty kilometers away and get back city at the gathering itself leaders are calling it the g six plus one the u.s. against the rest all six u.s. allies in the group of seven of the world's largest economies opposed donald trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum and hope to avert a trade war but that. perhaps trump those in mind he's being isolated today here at matters because these six countries here represent values they represent the economic market with a strong history and certainly also represent a true force on the international level it's the diplomatic equivalent of
a family intervention as donald trump prepared to arrive french president emanuel canadian prime minister just to talk about how to talk to the u.s. president there's no question that on trade on climate change on some other issues there will different be. this is a perspective but the role of the chief seven is to provide a context to highlight the ways we work together and work through some of the differences in perspectives trump fired back via twitter saying in part please tell prime minister trudeau and president mccrone that they are charging the us massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers the meeting could end in a show of unity or a showdown if you are going to carve the world up and you're going to have united states versus rest of world the rest of the world is going to be bigger and it's going to be more important. as the leaders in protesters gather in quebec those watching the g.
seven around the world remain in suspense wondering whether history will be made inside that meeting or outside john hendren al-jazeera quebec city well ahead of his meeting his g seven counterparts donald trump has just tweeted looking forward to straightening out on fire with the g seven countries and it doesn't happen we come out even better. is professor of economics. university she says g seven members need to have a more inclusive approach when it comes to trade. right now g. seven is a mess because there is clearly a lot of divergence in terms of their attitudes but i really think they have only themselves to blame i think do you think should stop blaming trump because g seven as a whole has displayed a singular lack of imagination in the last few years in coping with the world's most important economic problems so for now for them to come and say well it's us against trump and the us is ridiculous because they haven't shown the leadership
required to actually take the world out of the quagmire that it's in the g seven has to take account of all of this of the genuine concerns and the inequalities that are generated by current rules to actually enable countries to have domestic policy space to deal with these problems but in addition g. seven and g. twenty have to actually need both concerted fiscal expansion a global new deal you have to have a global new deal that enables countries to expand to get better for employment and prosperity instead of that you are creating a world in which these two tensions are only going to get larger and more aggressive. james bays is in se of war ahead of tuesday's summit between the leaders of u.s. and north korea he says the rift on display ahead of the g seven meeting is unprecedented. but i've been to g. seven meetings for many years including when they were g.
eight when russia was involved always a great deal of tension between russia and the others when russia was invited to those meetings never have i seen tension among the seven like we have right now some are even calling it a meeting of the g six plus one on the one that's against the other six is president trump and the united states a year ago i covered the g seven in italy and then there was tension over some of trauma comments his views on nato his pulling out of the climate deal but now you've got added to that pulling out of the iran deal and these terrorists which have the potential of starting a global trade war it is going to be a very very tense summit meeting coming up in quebec in the coming hours president trump we know doesn't really want to be there in fact he's thought apparently in the white house to have said perhaps he shouldn't go to all of the ships and vice presidents but he is pushing ahead with this meeting but it's interesting that the dynamics there in quebec seem to be even worse than they are in singapore he seems
to have more problems with his allies and a summit with them than a summit with a country that has long been seen as one of the u.s. is enemies. now donald trump may invite north korea's leader to the white house if tuesday's summit in singapore goes well yes present raise the possibility was hosting japan's prime minister and official has more from washington. the japanese prime minister will see donald trump but the upcoming g. seven summit in canada chin zoabi made a detour to washington to ensure he gets some private time with the u.s. president to discuss north korea as a to settle down in the oval office the president admitted he didn't feel the need for a lot of preparation before his historic summit in singapore i don't think you have to prepare very much it's about attitude it's about willingness to get things done but i think i've been preparing for the summit for a long time prime minister abbey wants to make sure key japanese demands aren't lost in the moment that any deal isn't just good for the us but its allies i hope
the upcoming meeting in singapore represents the beginning of a bright new future for north korea and indeed a bright new future for the world. the deed nuclearization of the korean peninsula word are sure in a new era of prosperity security and peace for all koreans north and south and for people everywhere when donald trump travel to japan in the vendor he met the families of japanese citizens allegedly abducted by the north koreans in the seventy's and eighty's the release is top of prime minister abbott his agenda is the state cannot abandon all titles in tacitus on behalf of the citizens of japan i would like to thank president trump and the people of the united states for their understanding and support towards the preservation of the adoption issues and so much i donald trump believes the summit in singapore can make progress towards north korea abandoning its nuclear program but insists he could still walk away
he's holding out the carrot of better international relations for pyongyang and the stick of many more sanctions if it all falls apart japanese prime minister left the white house having played his part in a typical trump cliffhanger watching him in the world to stay tuned to see what comes next alan fischer al-jazeera washington. russia's president vladimir putin's a state visit to china to size a base of economic military and political cooperation for the presidency of state in paying the council u.s. influence to leaders with historical ties ties have considerable influence over the north korean leader kim jong un but i see you seem to sort of russia and china both want peace in the korean peninsula peace talks between the two koreas i'm moving towards the right direction moscow city some contacts with north korea contrarian. for a constructive work as larry has more from beijing. russian president vladimir
putin is in china for the shanghai cooperation organization summit now this is an economic grouping led by russia and china seen by some as a counterweight to many of the groupings and blocks that are dominated by the united states and the two countries are drawing closer in part because of the close personal ties between their leaders and in part driven by the increasingly fraught relationship with the u.s. and when we look at russia it's finding that it needs more trade partners in the east particularly china because of sanctions against it led by the u.s. for its annexation of crimea in two thousand and fourteen russia is also being investigated and being accused of having meddled in u.s. elections as for china it's in the midst of a possible trade war with the u.s. these are the world's two largest economies china is also facing criticism from the u.s. and being challenged for its increasing militarization of disputed parts of the south
china sea and the other thing that these two countries have in common is that they are not invited to the summit that's going to be held between north korea and the u.s. that's not to say though that we can't discount their influence now in the days leading up to in days in the weeks leading up to this summit taking place russia has visited north korea it suggested that sanctions against north korea ought to be lifted in phases to perhaps gain favor with north korean officials in the meantime we've also seen china extend a visit to north korean leader twice this year already. for racketeering and money laundering case against south africa's former president has been adjourned until next month jacob zuma made a brief court appearance and in for a second time three months ago judges reinstated sixteen charges linked to a two and a half billion dollar european weapons deal in the one nine hundred ninety s. when zuma was deputy president has the latest from the court.
