we're on the frontline but it's under attack and that would happen well but exactly . as a cheat twenty summit gets underway in argentina saudi crown prince cuts a lonely figure but finds a friend and vladimir putin. i know i'm maryam namazie in london you know with al-jazeera also coming up ukraine bars russian men aged sixteen to sixty from entering fearing a land invasion off the moscow sees three of its ships. anger and frustration in zimbabwe where fuel shortages of left drivers queuing for hours. and regret why
many in wales a case of change their mind about the u.k. leaving the european union. the g twenty summit of the world's top economies is underway in argentina it's supposed to be about trade and climate change but the awkward presence of saudi crown prince mohammed bin sell none has overshadowed the events of the killing of jamal khashoggi he remained on the sidelines of the family photo before being warmly greeted in front of the cameras by russia's president vladimir putin he's already held talks with the french president who reportedly berated him for not listening to him also overshadowing the summit is the conflict between russia and ukraine g. seven foreign ministers of criticize moscow's actions and trump says he'll only hold an impromptu meeting with vladimir putin to raise a bow has more now from when is. the world powerful leaders gathered at
a site is argentina's president. greeted each one of them. we have the obligation to show the world that global challenges have global solutions work climate change we can't resolve them alone. there are several issues overshadowing the event like the presence of saudi crown prince mohammed bin salomon and his suspected role in the killing of a saudi journalist jamal khashoggi at the family photo the crown prince was standing in the back row off to the side he seemed isolated from the other leaders apart from a quick handshake from the head of the international development bank but later he received a warm handshake from russian president really me to pull being. boring leaders like france's and grown conveyed a strong message to be inside a man and insisted on the international experts being part of the investigation into these murder then there's the trade issue not only the ongoing commercial
standoff between the united states and china but also the signing of a revised commercial agreement to replace nafta mexico and canada have so far been resistant to donald trump's protectionist measures but there was some progress as i said the task isn't done there is more hard work ahead to build resilient strong economies that support families everywhere in canada make no mistake we will stand up for our workers and fight for their families and their communities. and ronald it's all the more reason why we need to keep working to remove the tariffs on steel and aluminum between our countries the summit is a historic event for argentina and a chance for a president. who is struggling with double digit inflation and recession donald trump promised the investment argentina so desperately needs we've known each other
a little while we talked about lots of good things for argentina for the united states including trade including military urges other things but we have a lot to talk a little bit o. times a day maybe five or so is. finding consensus on issues like climate change trade and migration is the summit biggest challenge especially when some of its members like donald trump are skeptical about many of the issues being discussed for many that make it more difficult for big breakthroughs that will benefit g. twenty nations in general and the rest of the world will see that when i say it is but let's just focus now on the presence of saudi crown prince mohammed summit with alan fischer who is live for us and when is iris and alan there was a sense of caution on the part of some while they'd as bought the crown prince did manage to have some blush on these things today. a lot of them have been very brief exchanges certainly the diplomatic niceties were observed among mohammed bin salman
was introduced coming into the g twenty was met by president makary the horse hands were shaken pictures were taken he then moved into the main hall there were a number of exchanges which were immediately tweeted by the saudi foreign minister the they were very keen to assure that mohammed bin salman was not an international pariah was not being sidelined at this conference but was in fact being welcomed by other world leaders there was a bizarre moment when the mirror put and walked in and saw the chrome prints he welcomed them not in the normal way you would see it events like this i've been covering g twenty s. and g eight for a very long time i've never seen one world leader walk in and high five another but that's exactly what vladimir putin did then exchanged a joke or two a story then when pushed by the so did media that donald trump and mohammed bin salman had had a friendly meeting the the americans were asked about that donald trump said there was no discussions he might but there were no discussions so essentially it was
just a friendly greeting in passing although donald trump still holding out the possibility that there might be more substantive discussions with mohammed been summoned before the g. eight is done and then there was the very awkward family photo that's when all the leaders gathered together and mohamed bin salman stood at the far right of the picture we were wondering who would be placed next to him it turned out to be an investment banker shook hands but many people were scrambling to find out exactly who this person was meanwhile on the far left of the picture down at the bottom was president of turkey that isn't a coincidence these things are stage managed than the two men were obviously kept quite far apart the result saw an interesting meeting with president macron he said he wanted to talk to mohammed bin selman at some point there was an exchange between the two it was caught. on camera again by the saudi foreign ministry at one point we hear president marc roman saying but you don't listen to me and the crown
prince saying i will what that was a bow we're not entirely sure but we know from the elysee palace they say that the president raised the issue of the war in yemen and also the model of jamal khashoggi are doing mohamed been summoned to include international experts into the investigation of that crime and we've also heard just in the last hour from the chinese that there has been a brief meeting between the chinese president and mohammed bin selman so mohammad been summoned really came to gamble coming to this gathering and he was aware of the international outrage there has been because of the murder of jamal khashoggi he is aware that many intelligence agencies have heard the news from the turks and also from the cia in the united states where they have said that with the degree of certainty they believe to have been some an order of the murder of jamal khashoggi so it was a risk to come here there was a possibility that he would be sidelined but we've heard from the saudis over the
last few days saying look if you're talking global economy if you're talking oil prices you really have to deal with the saudi arabian government and at this meeting at this time that is muhammad bin selman so we can expect more smaller meetings maybe not big bilateral meetings but smaller meetings smaller greetings smaller handshakes as this progresses all right thank you very much allan why is iris with the latest on that want to turn now to president arnold trant and his day today our white house correspondent kimberly hulk it also in the argentine capital for us and trump has been very busy meeting the leaders of canada and mexico signing a new north american trade pact is there still a sense of uncertainty over shadowing the deal that kimberly. well donald trump is projecting this is a done deal and that's caught a few people by surprise here where the sarrasin those who are following it back in north america because this is not
a done deal it may be pushed through in canada and mexico it's relatively straightforward with the signing of this agreement but in the united states under u.s. law it needs to be ratified in the u.s. congress and that's a little bit of a problem because the midterm elections there are many democrats who have some issues with this agreement which is now called the u.s. mc a so this has to be pushed through and ratified in the u.s. congress donald trump is already sort of celebrating but the fact of the matter is is that there's still one more hurdle to get through and also have a feeling a little bit bittersweet about this agreement at the signing a couple of hours ago here where the stars in fact the canadian prime minister just to reflect some of that he kept referring to it as the new nafta instead of the u.s. m.c.a. maybe because ca stands for canada that's at the end and also the fact that still looming through all of this and not in that agreement with the lifting of tariffs
on canadian steel and aluminum that is put in place by goods shipped to the united states from canada so there are still some sort of thorny issues between all of these players but at the same time donald trump projecting this is a victory somewhat prematurely many suggest all right thank you very much it's with all the latest on president trump's schedule and some of the issues he has been tackling today thank you very much kimberly. a lot so holzhausen demonstrators have been rallying in one desirous in protest at the g. twenty economic policies and the demonstrators on lighting to get anywhere near the need as though he calls the police and border patrols of cordoned off a twelve square can only say area. around the convention center where the summit is being held public transportation is also suspended in a city with hundreds of intersections blocks to control traffic and grounds.

i'll come back a quick look at top stories now the g. twenty summit of the world's top economies has been overshadowed by the presence of saudi crown prince mohammed bin salmaan he remained on the sidelines of the family photo before being warmly pointed in front of the cameras i russia's president vladimir putin. has already held talks with the french president reportedly and not listening to him. and ukraine's president has banned russian men between the ages of sixteen and sixty from entering the country for a month and

know that there are their chance and that their posters are not being heard or seen by the g twenty leaders but they say they want their voice to be heard they want the world to know that there are people who hold what is taking place in the list as i say of complaints is very long we have everything from the i.m.f. to the president of the saudi crown prince here who is being described as a massage and mr assassin by just about everyone we've spoken to here also the very fact that president mike green has allowed this country to host the g. twenty meeting they say is an insult given that argentina is in a deep deep recession there are something like twenty thousand soldiers and sick and members of the security forces out here trying to keep with the g twenty leaders safe which comes at a price they had also the issue of women's rights gender inequality gays know everything because you can imagine is being represented at this march
which is now going to be heading towards the congress building that's about twenty blocks from here and there are a lot of riot police waving and case things here should get violent as they did last year in hamburg my room thank you very much for now do you see any human with all the latest on some of those protests that have been taking place around the g. twenty summit in argentina. syrian state media say thirty people have been killed in the u.s. led coalition airstrikes targeting i still need. most of the victims in the town. a said to be women and children all day nearly twenty people and some myself fighters were killed in a coalition strike on a prison in the same area there are still pockets controlled by icily in eastern syria where they've been killing civilians now unicef is warning of an unprecedented humanitarian disaster for children in the central african republic it
says tens of thousands could starve to death as rival armed groups continue to battle for control of land and resources and brian reports. these are the victims of one of the world's most forgotten conflicts starving children fill central african republic sir only pediatric hospital and their frail bodies are fighting an invisible enemy hunger to inform on placed in one place but it's really sad because it's an illness that can be prevented but we see dozens of cases if for a day sometimes children arrive here in a very serious condition they go straight to the emergency ward and some die it's really painful because they've got. the u.n. says children a suffering the most in the fighting that began in two thousand and thirteen between mostly muslim celica rebels and the mainly christian anti baloch of militias. both sides have a tech schools hospitals and religious buildings and one of the poorest and least
developed countries in the world a militia leader and former politician tom is now facing charges in the international criminal court accused of murder torture and recruiting child soldiers like level she thought is only for passing. i was fifteen when i joined the armed group it was to protect myself and money so i could support myself because i was poor if you don't help the children the boys will join armed groups and the girls will sell their bodies. according to the united nations the violence has forced a quarter of all children from their homes many into the bush or overcrowded camps nearly every child needs protection from the armed groups which now control the saint of the country it is one point five million children require humanitarian aid and forty three thousand could die from extreme hunger in the coming year children the central african republic a constantly that facing violence fear they are recruited into armed groups.
they are living under imaginable poverty and facing life threatening nutrition their situation is really desperate we have a whole generation of children growing up in in desperate desperate situations. unicef says children and central african republic have been abandoned by the international community for too long and without urgent help they could become a lost generation brian al jazeera. zimbabwe is experiencing its worst economic crisis in a decade the price of basic goods is skyrocketing and long queues are becoming a common sight outside petrol stations where fuel is running out to has more from harare. it's the second fuel crisis in just over a month that is not just in the capital harare it's all over the country fuel pumps
are driving this is what you're seeing people have been waiting in long lines for hours some say even days hoping to get fuel what happens is they hear a rumor or they get word that fuel will be delivered could be delivered on the certain day they come and they join the line many people we've spoken to say they're angry and frustrated quite frankly i can't believe we're here again as i'm sure so many people feel it's a it's just such a waste of time and productivity. as i'm bob wins it's super frustrating because instead of working at you know how selling we are hearing something that we have become very good outs and shouldn't. be bullied me for the sins of known friends. of the should. something for. people who are desperate or con wait in line for whatever reason are buying the fuel on the black market it's illegal but they say there's nothing else they can do
they need to get to work than it is in the children to school but buying on the black market means paying in u.s. dollars many people here don't earn u.s. dollars you can just walk into the bank and get the money because of cash shortages all across the country the government is telling zimbabweans to be patient they saying fuel supplies they would maybe by the end of the week but people are frustrated they're angry they say enough is enough they want less talk and more action. european council president on a cold person the prime minister tourism a plan is the only deal available and if the u.k. parliament rejects it or the choices will be to stay in the e.u. or leave with no deal many want another referendum to put those choices to the british people and there's growing evidence that some who voted to leave the e.u. are changing their minds aren't seeing reports now from swanzy and south wales. when wales voted in favor of leaving the european union it was seen as a protest vote against the british parliament but as an act of revenge it has
backfired already a shiver went through south wales when this german car parts company recently announced it was moving to the constant because of bricks it it will cost five hundred british jobs the workers are exactly the demographic which voted leave it seems many are now having second thoughts you get a feeling that people are. thinking about it more know that before the referendum is the truth i don't think they realize the implications and they currently see in the mess that we're in at the moment trying to deal with the negotiations on the withdrawal agreement. on a totally i would say i think yes people are in second thoughts. the prime minister visited wales this week when she took office she talked about it being an opportunity to build a new economy that works for everyone somewhere that message got lost bits of south wales are among the poorest parts of the whole of the european union and when
people here voted leave many said they expected the british government to step in and offer the same sort of financial support to them that the e.u. had previously done not only has that not happened it hasn't played any part at all in the debate about what post bracks it britain should look like. small as he had pinned its hopes on a hugely ambitious billion dollars scheme for a vast renewable energy projects in the bay it could have been a perfect example of a new economy for poor parts of the country but the government blocked it saying it didn't offer value for money local business groups say they've been offered no design no blueprints for how this will benefit them i think it's clear that their government and. very little intention of continuing that ever of investment that we've seen from. in this region or any other region around the the k. . down here in southwest wales we feel a long way from london a long way from priority this sense of bricks it betraying the people who voted for
it is leading to polling suggesting that wales and other places like it's changing their minds those who want another referendum are delighted there's one thing we've learned over the last two years is that the european union are going to bend at the knees for the wishes of the british i think people induction are really being led down the garden path of the right to express their view if they can't do the right thing to a more sensible. all the talk in westminster of staying in the customs union or ambitious trade deals with america means little in places like this they expected brecht's it to rebalance the british economy and they still waiting for someone to tell them how it will lawrence lee al-jazeera in south wales. architects and newcomers a competing for design glory at the wild architecture festival in amsterdam over five hundred projects from fifty seven countries were shortlisted for awards in
dozens of categories with the building of the year to be revealed in about two hours' time one prize already announced as the amsterdam prize for projects in the host city. says the winning architects upon. working buildings need to work they need to combine form and function some such as the humble dutch windmill and now icons of human achievement this is industrial architecture. the same is true of contemporary buildings in our modern cities they need to work for people in the case of this year's winner of the amsterdam architecture prize lots of people. the dutch capital has a new spine that all south metro line is ten kilometers long and has eight gleaming stations it took decades of planning fifteen years of construction and required a catalogue of engineering innovations to deal with the city's many canals and
thick layers of modern we're reinventing the city we're reinventing the engineers that worked on the on the project we're reinventing engineering this part of the station was not built on this site it was built offsite it was floated in a canal that we and the new central station and then sunk and then connected to the rest of the track there is a transients about train stations which means that we often miss many of the details that go into designing a months of the effort that goes into engineering but perhaps that's half the success of good architecture but we don't know what it is doing to us as it takes us on a journey from a to b. . some buildings such as the university of amsterdam are designed to bring us together this is social engineering in steel and concrete the previous building had long but will drink dollars and sell like rooms some of the previous building
remains but new spaces have been created to reconnect the university to the city and the students with each other. the idea was as people meet in the city so they should meet in the building and if there is a university so that social context is even more important regardless of how functional some architecture appears or how seamlessly it blends into the background it all aspires to quietly improve the way we live. the park al-jazeera amsterdam. of the top stories for you now the g. twenty summit of the world's top economies is underway in argentina the meeting was somewhat overshadowed by the presence of the saudi crown prince following the killing of jamal khashoggi he remained on the sidelines of the family photo but was warmly greeted in front of the cameras by russia's vladimir putin he's also held
