1:02 pm
about a global ripple effects also overshadowing the two day summit is a matter of jamal the saudi crown prince says face protests and legal complaints against his attendants over his alleged role in the journalists killing and i meeting between russian leader vladimir putin and donald trump has been called off after sunday's naval confrontation between russia and ukraine in the black sea it's led to pressure in the u.s. . and to consider new sanctions against moscow we begin our coverage with this report from al-jazeera story in buenos aires. the mothers of the last of a manual have been demanding to know the whereabouts of their missing children since they disappeared during argentina's dictatorship forty years ago. the g twenty gives them a chance to take their message to a wider audience. the city is under siege it seems like we're under curfew but we made it here and once again we call on world leaders to stop the policies that
1:03 pm
create hunger poverty and that hurt the working class. they were into thousands of people are promising to take over the streets of one side is on friday in spite of these protests this is a historic event for argentina and an opportunity to be at the center of world affairs even though there are several issues overshadowing the main objective which is to build consensus on crucial issues like climate change and inequality. among them the presence of saudi crown prince mohammed bin salomon and the request by human rights watch to investigate him over the murder of journalism i casually. skilling has changed relations between saudi and the western world. in one way mark on says he's ready to talk to the crown prince about what happened. sure i have always been very clear on the case of saudi arabia and i will inevitably have the opportunity to discuss it with the saudi crown prince on the margins of this g.
1:04 pm
twenty meeting we will have the opportunity to discuss it among european leaders as i requested before the g. seven donald trump arrived in one aside is on thursday evening ready to discuss the trade war between the united states and china he's cancelled he's meeting with russian president vladimir putin after the seizure of crane and ships by russia at the crimean peninsula. these protests. came all the way from the united states carrying a baby trump. he's been an activist opposing the us foreign policy since the vietnam war we would like the president of the united states that are a little bit more mature adults if i was going to boil it down to just one statement it would be that we think it's asinine that he's on twitter we think it's asinine that he's casual and that he. picks fights seems to want to take the smallest and lowest road instead of the high the g twenty begins proper on friday this mass yoga session was organized to help leaders concentrate on resoldering
1:05 pm
their differences. the protest around when a site is will remind them how hard that task is likely to be. the united nations secretary general antonio terrace is also in buenos aires he is alan fischer with more on that. the organizers of the g twenty and global leaders are also hoping that crucial issues will be discussed things like global warming things like the global economy there are some experts who say we could well be heading for another recession not quite as bad as two thousand and eight but something that would cause untold misery for many people around the globe well the u.n. secretary general is in argentina he had a news conference earlier on thursday and i asked him how he can get everyone pointing in the same direction and trying to bring global solutions to global problems liver saw that they're seeing the central problem of the.
1:06 pm
just because others there's of course you see is that the too many of them until you get here as understands where the fault lines are and i asked him you know what the problems are how do you get everyone pointing in the same direction and coming up with a solution he said i don't know you tell me i pointed out i wasn't the u.n. secretary general but that perhaps sure is his frustration that the twenty biggest economies are involved in individual rows rather than looking at the big picture and working towards solutions there they're hoping at the end of the g. twenty there will be an official communique it would be unusual if there wasn't but given the divisions given the problems it's by no means guaranteed if they were able to get a statement which discusses what has been achieved and where they need to go that that would be progress. now as can is as fine mr justin trudeau arrived in argentina for the g.
1:07 pm
twenty his government announced that it's simple zing sanctions on seventeen saudi nationals so it believes had a role in the matter of. his he can indian foreign minister christian friedland. murder into multiple shoji is apparent and represents an unconscionable attack on freedom of expression and freedom of the press he continued to call for a credible and independent international investigation. this case is known as the post those responsible for mr rush ots death must be held to account and must face justice as speaks. in brontosaurus for this committee as we've seen a lot of issues on the table at this g twenty first of all how much as a saudi crown prince has appearance clouding the event this is a big diplomatic test for him what can we expect what can he expect. well all eyes are going to be on the fact that he will be in the same room as the
1:08 pm
u.s. president on that least four different ok asians and so we're watching that very closely in fact if you hear the helicopters buzzing about above me here the noise is a little bit loud that's because donald trump is set to meet in the casa rosato pink house behind me in just a few moments that's where he'll be greeted by the argentinean leader but when it comes to the interactions that the white house has not ruled out between the crown prince the saudi crown prince and donald trump certainly there is going to be a lot of scrutiny given the fact that the united states is essentially given the crown prince now a free pass you heard those statements coming from the secretary of defense air earlier where he said there is no smoking gun after looking at the intelligence surrounding the killing of jamal high shows so this is going to be an attempt by the saudi crown prince to put that murder behind him but the question will be whether or not the world leaders that are gathered here allow him to do that you
1:09 pm
have to remember it's not just saudi arabia that has been houston human rights violations we also have the russian leader here fled amir putin and of course at the chinese leader president xi as well and both of those nations also have significant human rights concerns when it comes to the eyes of the world so it is very much expected that he is going to get a free pass because the united states is taking the leadership on that but at the same time there's an awful lot of pressure you heard in teresa both report there that the concerns by the argentinean leader that is certainly something is going to be raised with other world leaders but again absent u.s. leadership on this issue even though there is an effort by the argentinean prosecutor here to try and push this through the courts it's expected that because the wills of justice move so slowly that the crown prince will likely leave before any significant action is taken as you've said kimberly were expecting. some live pictures very shortly of president and president mark rey he's host. of the cyrus
1:10 pm
said the opening of the g. twenty last of important events for the u.s. president including a high stakes meeting between him and his chinese counterpart talk us through what we can expect on that any hope of progress on trade with china. there certainly is some a cautious optimism in terms of an agreement but at the same time donald trump is under a lot of pressure from his own u.s. congress not to make a deal unless significant concessions are made there is a concern about intellectual property theft that is ongoing chinese cyber attacks to even the fact that china has been flooding the united states market with cheaply made goods and this is all a threat in the eyes of the u.s. congress to american prosperity long term having said that the spokesman for the chinese foreign minister said he is optimistic some sort of deal can be struck here
1:11 pm
in argentina which. we hope the u.s. can show sincerity in me train a half way to promote a proposal that both countries can accept at the same time we also hope that the hard work of both sides of the argentina beating it will shortly take place between the leaders of china and the us can achieve positive results to set the direction for the next stage in the development of chinese u.s. ties. still the congress and the leaders back in the united states are urging donald trump to stay aggressive in a letter that they sent to the white house donald trump has signaled he's willing to make a deal but again he needs to see some significant reforms if those reforms do not come into effect in some sort of concession by chinese leaders well then expect this trade war this tit for tat trade war with the united states and china to continue to escalate come january there could be a hike up to twenty five percent on tariffs of chinese goods and more than two
1:12 pm
hundred billion in chinese goods to the united states kimberly thank you very much for the moment we will of course check in with you throughout the day here on day one of the g. twenty summit in. it now as we mentioned donald trump has pointed to russia's actions against ukraine as his reason for canceling a meeting with president vladimir putin in buenos aires ukraine is not only calling on the international community to put pressure on moscow but it's also taking its own measures the latest banning russian men aged between sixteen and sixty from entering the country. is live in moscow for a story first of all how is the kremlin reacting to president trump's decision to cancel a meeting with vladimir putin in argentina. well when the news came in late on thursday evening the kremlin responded by saying well yes they've seen donald trump's tweets and seen the news reports but nothing official or come from the white house so putin was flying to what is are is
1:13 pm
assuming that the meeting was going ahead well on friday they did change that they obviously did get some sort of official notification from the white house and the statement from dmitri peskov the kremlin spokes person today said we regret this decision of the u.s. administration to cancel the meeting this means the discussion of serious international and bilateral issues is being delayed for an uncertain period of time . president putin is still ready for holding contacts with his u.s. counterparts in the last hour or so the foreign ministry spokesperson marie is a horrible or has offered some more comments on this basically what she's doing is pointing to internal politics in the say specifically but it's clear that she's referring to the news of michael cohen. that he basically lied about one of donald trump's development projects particular one referring to
1:14 pm
a project in in moscow in russia so she is saying that don't trump cancel this meeting with putin due to the u.s. domestic political situation rather than over the current strait incidents here but there is bound to be pressure on pushing at the g twenty over the tensions with ukraine how is russia viewing these tensions currently president putin initially suggested that this was you know just. a skirmish at the border but it seems to be more than that now. it is more than that of course but it's the message from the kremlin the message from russia's leadership is that hey let's not get too worked up about this as you say they are saying that it's just a border incident that's what putin was saying it's an investment for him this week in moscow what russia doesn't want to happen is for nato for
1:15 pm
ukraine's international friends to get more involved in this the whole kind of starts of russia at the moment is to prevent that from happening that's why they've sent an extra battalion of s four hundred air defense systems to crimea and any mention of nato pushing into the actual sea or becoming more forceful in the region gets you know a very negative response from moscow they're also looking or trying to seem like the adults in the room particularly in comparison to ukraine's government so ukraine has just brought in this ban on russians of adults age russian males of adult age entering ukraine now russia are often respond same kinds to things that are being brought in again states in this instance they're saying it
1:16 pm
would be nuts to do something like that if irrational as a car of the foreign ministry spokesman said if anyone tries to act similarly to it may cause some sort of frenzy. thank you for that rory chalons live in moscow for us now as a crisis escalates ukraine's president is asking the world for help petro poroshenko wants nato to send ships to the sea of where russia has been dock ating ports russia's also deployed more surface to air missiles to crimea or to regions in ukraine are now under martial law including the city of kharkiv where andrew symonds reports from. martial law in ukraine's second city isn't very evident more police on the ground and extra vigilance but most of the emergency power is now available to the president but being held in reserve so fear and counted scar is a journalist who was here outside the city's russian consulate when it was firebombed
1:17 pm
on sunday night nationalists demonstrating against russians action off the coast of alex crimea she says later when president petro poroshenko warned that russia could triple the number of times on the border people were startled some fearing an invasion. it's karma. rather than more which local officials have assured people that moves which will restrict the constitutional rights will only be brought into effect if russia starts an open act of aggression such as an invasion people here in hockey live in a strange state is there a full war or isn't there. paper boats remain outside the consulate passive resistance to the russian confrontation city officials won't comment and were understood to be seeking more clarification about the martial law or some politicians are still cynical about the president's motivations with their actions at the end of march next year diable like to only buy back
1:18 pm
a bill on the back of twenty fourteen it should have been done and everyone would have taken it normally it could have been an adequate response to the situation but now honestly it looks ridiculous. an estimated thirty percent of hockey these people are ethnic russian and the border is only forty kilometers away if the conflict was to escalate drastically would certainly be in the firing line and this is the city that built thousands of teeth thirty four tanks its legendary armor believed by many to have been one of the main reasons why the soviets defeated the nazis in the second world war. now work to build and maintain ukrainian tanks is virtually nonstop with exports halted. its long necessarily what's happening on the ground that's alarming what's going through people's minds conscription for
1:19 pm
example it applies to young men between twenty and twenty seven years of age worn year for graduates eighteen months for non-graduates special exemption for young people from serving on the front line but could this old change. a student's depart from a day's study in a university get a hint of their nervousness. if not to brotherly nations are fighting each other there needs to be a peaceful solution without the loss of human life but for the new boy. but i will be in pain if my brother's conscripted because i don't want him to go to war to fight somebody it's a strange time in that short history as an independent state the message from ukraine is one of strength and determination but there's divisiveness in its internal politics and to summon soldiers who have keep you crying there's plenty more ahead on this news hour including an ebola outbreak in
1:20 pm
a democratic republic of congo is the second biggest on record with hundreds of new cases since august and find out which two teams made it through to major league soccer's championship match joe have the details in sports later. the world health organization says the ebola outbreak in the democratic republic of congo is now the second worst on record there been more than four hundred twenty new cases since august and two hundred fifty people have died attacks by rebel groups in the country's northeast are making it difficult for health workers to contain the disease peter j. hotez is dean of the national school of tropical medicine at baylor college he told us of the threat workers our faces. this part of eastern congo is one of the most destabilized. regions of the world they've had almost continuously violence for
1:21 pm
practically twenty years and you might say well what does violence and conflict have to do with disease well what happens is that collapses the whole health system infrastructure so when you want to be concerned about safe aerials which are a big problem during all outbreaks or contacting potentially infected individuals this presents a really tough problem for health workers work area the good news is that we have a vaccine that was we didn't have a vaccine on hand but the twenty fourteen outbreak and west africa so we have a very effective and relatively safe vaccine available now. so that's the good news and so far more than thirty thousand doses of vaccine that's been deployed but the problem is working in such an unstable area you have to ensure the safety of the health of the vaccinators and you have to be able to trace potential contacts and get them vaccinated so in theory this should be. a
1:22 pm
non-problem we should be able to quickly contain this through use of the vaccine but because of the massive political instability one of the most difficult parts of the world there really slows things down and unfortunately so far more than two hundred people perished. now unicef report says more children's lives are being impacted by the growing crisis in central african republic one point five million children now require humanitarian aid an increase of three hundred thousand since twenty sixteen a quarter of all children are either displaced or refugees because of the violence which has seen armed groups take control in many parts of the country and more than forty thousand kids are expected to suffer from acute malnutrition in twenty nineteen this as aid workers face an increased risk of attacks this year let's speak to christine we gonna in paris she is unicef's representative in central african republic thank you so much for being with us on al-jazeera

1:34 pm
indicates that president trump or then candidate trump felt vulnerable if it was known that he was dealing in russian enterprises or because he would need to curry the favor of mr putin nothing happens in russia of important without mr putin's approval the president dismissed the news in his usual fashion. bad nothing his former top aide is a weak person. by being weak but like other people that you watch he's a weak person and what he's trying to do is get a reduced sentence so he's lying about a project that everybody knew about i mean we were very open to where the kohen did plead guilty to crimes that completely related to trump pain of women who trump had an affair with so they would stay quiet before the election and while it might not have been illegal to do a deal in russia while he is under investigation for potentially colluding with russia to win the election it would have looked suspicious this makes six six close
