of the lack of public scrutiny especially after the philippines won its case at an international tribunal two years ago about a territorial dispute in the south china sea china is still an adverse claimant to much of the west philippine sea because aside from its share size economic and. military it has demonstrated. it is unwilling to compromise when he was sworn into office to tear to promise to pursue an independent foreign policy moving away from long standing ally the united states and building closer relations with china and russia two years on and some over here are wondering whether to tear to really wants more independence or is capitulating to china jim duggan al-jazeera manila. coming up.

live from london also coming up a boost for yemen's peace talks as the government says it will take part in the un backed process and who the rebels promise to stop their drone and missile strikes. u.k. prime minister to resume a defense or breaks it plan as the best for jobs while the chief negotiator says the process has reached a key moment. and one of the global car industries the biggest superstars carlos ghosn is arrested over financial misconduct. and those saudi arabia's king solomon has heaped praise on his judiciary and his first public comments since the murder of jamal khashoggi a journalist was killed and dismembered in the istanbul concert last month bunching the gulf nation into one of its worst international crises in decades last week the
public prosecutor cleared crown prince mohammed bin soundman of any involvement in the crime and speaking in riyadh king solomon stressed he had full faith in the kingdom's justice system and. the kingdom was established on the principles of justice and that's why we have all the trust the judiciary that they would do the necessary to establish the truth and justice. also ensure that no penalties are punished. there been more revelations in the turkish media about the murder including reports that nineteen calls were made from istanbul consulate to saudi arabia on the day of the incident joins us live now from istanbul so what's the significance of these latest revelations. as long the significance of these revelations. about the x. have still have a lot to it if he'll to the world and they still have
a lot of ammunition for the total destruction of the saudi innovative the latest of that came today reported by two newspapers who had access to part of the recordings and new sections of the recordings that the turkish security authorities are powerful you have got. and that shows that the saudi narrative about the fact that the fifteen men who came here who were sent. to negotiate according to the saudi story to negotiate with the to return to saudi arabia that is not true according to these revelations they show that the moment he entered the consulate the consulate foreman received him dale in section a the visas are normally processed and one of them grabbed his hand and pulled him to the section b. was the office of the concert is located and he. tried to this is that and told the man leave me alone who do you think you are and the response of the man who is said
according to the recordings to be. to be one of this special advice special security aide to mohammed the same as the crown prince he shouted at him insulting him and he said traitor your day of reckoning has come and then they took him to the office of the consul and that's when the recording. field shouts and screaming and pain from torture cries. and that was apparently the beginning of the operation to kill him and dismember him also the recordings that have been revealed today show that at least three of those one thousand calls that were already talked about here in turkey. that were made by the members of the hit squad with saudi arabia done during the seventy seven a few minutes of. torture and deception there and the
voice in one of those calls according to the turkish authorities is the voice of many here in my head of the us is the man who is supposed to be the head of the hit squad and who is the special close security aide to crown prince mohammed the sentiment the turks by revealing this just about twenty four hours before president decides on who has given the orders to kill them out how should she is very significant i think they wanted to talk to the momentum and to strengthen their case before the americans decide on it and also it shows that they are they are adamant to completely destroy the saudi story that has been. revealed or that has been reported by the by the saudi. by the saudi justice so that comes also just hours after king solomon said those words of praise about
the saudi justice and it shows how different and how contradictory those facts are with their yalit and i vow thank you very much need a senior democratic senator ron wyden has called on u.s. intelligence officials to release publicly their findings on how shall g.'s death u.s. media reports say the cia has identified the saudi crown prince as ordering a matter where president donald trump says such conclusions are premature senior publicans also demanding action against prince mohammed bin sandman osman jordan reports washington. i did not know for the first time u.s. president donald trump says when he knows exactly what's in the audiotape surrounding the death of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi it's a suffering tape it's a terrible tape i've been fully briefed on it there's no reason for me to hear it in fact i said to the people should i they said you really should and there's no reason i know exactly i know everything that one of the ten without having to and what happens in trouble revealed this information during an interview he taped on
friday the same day that several newspapers reported that according to the cia because she was killed on orders of the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon position during the interview and the white house's position now it's still too soon to say who ordered she's murdered i don't know you know who can really know what if the crown prince speaking to you the president of the united states directly lied to you a lot that he told me that he had nothing to do with it he told me that i would say maybe five times in the last two years trump and his son in law jarrett cushion or had grown close to the crown prince they see him as key to their goal of isolating iran into promoting u.s. economic growth but on capitol hill the idea that mohamed bin solomon is a friend of the u.s. is dying i'm going to do whatever i can to place blame where i believe it lies i'm a put it at the feet of the crown prince who has been
a destructive force in the middle east the embargo or without telling anybody of this war in yemen has got completely out of control he put the prime minister of lebanon under house arrest is clearly this guy's a wrecking ball some in congress say trumps long running hatred of the intelligence community is keeping him from doing the right thing the president needs to listen to what our intelligence committee has to say what our best professionals assessment is and it's vitally important that this administration not allow itself to become part of any saudi coverup and while the u.s. . has imposed sanctions on seventeen saudi officials others in congress are pushing for a much tougher punishment we need to punish who ordered the who's in charge and really the only thing they understand over there is strength already there are two efforts underway in congress to block arms sales to the saudis not just to end the civil war in yemen but also to send a message to the white house it won't be allowed to ignore the indefensible.
al-jazeera washington white house correspondent can be how to live from washington d.c. can we what do we know about this report the president has promised yet we had hoped the president would speak about this was he appeared very briefly behind me for to receive the white house christmas tree he did not answer reporters' questions on this leaving that instead to his white house counselor kellyanne conway who spoke to reporters in the last couple of hours and really pushed back on the suggestion that this white house is not doing enough to hold the highest levels of the saudi government accountable as this president has promised she pointed to the fact that there has been already sanctions by the u.s. treasury as well as the revoking of visas by the state department but at the same time those actions have not included the saudi crown prince mohammed bin cell which the central intelligence agency or cia has concluded ordered the killing of.
so there is a lot of pressure on this white house but still this white house is pushing back take a listen. to how to see reluctance on the matter were even slow moving because of the seventy sanctions should the secretary of state on a minute before he got there to try to get answers he's waiting for the final report obviously he's made many comments not just the ones that some of you consciously want to cherry pick about the tragic and unspeakable murder. of mr bush and obviously we've already taken action. committee how's this going to play with the u.s. congress it's not playing well this congress is very frustrated and continues to put pressure on this white house and what is so unusual about that is the fact that it's bipartisan in nature given the fact that this is a very divided country divided congress the fact that they see almost unanimously on this issue the white house needs to do more to hold the highest levels of the saudi government accountable including the crown prince is certainly striking in
fact as we continue to watch for any sort of report to be potentially made public on tuesday there is an effort by one democratic senator from oregon ron wyden to do just that he is calling on the u.s. intelligence agency specifically the cia director gina haskell who we know went to turkey to meet with her counterparts and to speak about this investigation and also the director of national intelligence dan coats to make this a public assessment or rather make the assessment very public to the american voting public of the killing they feel that this is pivotal in the u.s. saudi relationship that has been in place for decades but they feel this is a tipping point and this relationship needs to be reexamined can be how could thank you very much indeed germany is taking action against the people suspected of being involved in. it's imposing travel bans on eighteen saudi nationals so they wouldn't be allowed to enter the country or europe's border zone domenic anus relations from
berlin. two announcements from germinal forages regarding the saudi arabian government and its role in the affair the first came from foreign minister high court in brussels where he and i once the decision to impose travel bans on eighteen saudi citizens who have been implicated in this affair calling for other european governments to follow suit and then separately here in berlin the economy ministry has announced that all arms exports to saudi arabia whether they offer you church signed agreements or current signed agreements are to be frozen that is important because the german armaments industry does exported considerable amount several many consignments to the saudi authorities well all those are now curtailed truncated as it were the point will be whether this is something that will be followed by other european governments certainly that's what the german government wants to see.
