no vital national security interest and not only that i think our involvement in this terrible war is one of the things that engender is more terrorism as more people die from starvation as people pick up bomb fragments when a school bus is killed and on the bomb fragment it says made in america it creates more terrorism so i think it's actually a risk to our national security to be involved with the saudis and we should not be aiding and abetting their bombing of civilian areas we'll still have hit on al jazeera we take a look at the economic impact and past months of protests as head of the. river plate with the entire battle for south dakota's top club football trophy in the long delayed much moved to europe because of violence. from long flowing on in the winds to an enchanting desert breeze.

welcome back you're watching al-jazeera has a whole run a reminder of our top stories the fiance of jamal khashoggi has told al-jazeera that she will continue to fight to ensure everyone involved in his murder is brought to justice new details on the side of journalists moments of emotion the u.s. media and according to those reports his final words were and we quote i can't breathe and. also the gulf cooperation council summit has ended in saudi arabia with no firm agreement on how to resolve simmering disagreements between member states. and the saudi coalition fighting in yemen says has issued seventeen permits for ships with food to enter and fuel to head to ports in the country u.s. senators will this week vote on a resolution to withdraw support for the coalition republican senator rand paul
9:04 am
says being involved can only be negative. china has some of the u.s. ambassador in beijing to protest against the detention of a top executive of the telecom giant har way its vice foreign minister called on the us and we quote immediately correct its wrong actions last week holloway's chief financial officer mangwana joe was detained in canada on washington's request she's accused of violating u.s. sanctions on iran the company says all its operations in iraq were in compliance with u.s. e.u. and e.u. sanctions bangs says that she was taken to hospital five attention after detention and that she is innocent. well u.s. from within senator marco rubio says he plans to reintroduce legislation that could bad chinese tech companies linked to the state on security grounds so i think both while we're in c.t. and multiple the chinese companies pose a threat to our national interest our national economic interests and our national
9:05 am
security interests and the why we case what they're accused of here which is accused of is violating the iran sanctions so at a minimum we should be doing to them what we did to z.t. when they violated the sanctions law and which included not having access to american suppliers and i hope that what will happen that's what we're encouraging the administration to do as soon as possible in a fleet is chief technology correspondent for access joins me now by skype from sub the cisco good to have you with us the arrest of being joe is really not helping the company's image globally when we have countries such as australia the united kingdom and the u.k. all wanting to ban its products correct i mean this is one step in a very geo political battle between the u.s. and china that's really affected the entire global taxi because while we is so important globally there are only a few providers of network equipment and while way is by far the least expensive of
9:06 am
those in terms of how the company proceeds surely they're in the hands now of the diplomats and we can see sort of the diplomatic fallout happening between beijing and washington d.c. . definitely i mean they are caught in the us has certainly had this big tension with wall way that's been brewing for a number of years now over just how influential the tech company is what role the chinese government has so you have that going on on the one hand and then you have the broader u.s. chartered trade issues going on it's made for an incredibly complex situation that it's hard to kind of see now are they i'm ravel themselves from is there any evidence or research that you know all of that supports the u.s. allegation that holloways technology can be used if i just generalize in some sort of spy scenario. well i mean there's two issues one is could there be and two is
9:07 am
is there a concern i think certainly there could be a concern i think as to whether there really is a concern there hasn't been a tremendous amount of evidence the u.k. i believe their security arm which the u.k. does use some figures test it thoroughly and recently lowered the security rating it gives so it said that there's probably not which was lower and then asked ratings where they had cleared the air but i think the big issue here is it super hard to tell it's hard to tell whether there's something that might be maybe in the software that could allow it to act in a future date i think what the u.s. what ideally like is less reliance globally on wild way but that's difficult for two reasons again the biggest one being there are the lowest cost provider globalise or some countries it's just not economically feasible and even in those countries where they could you know most companies like to go with the lowest cost provider now obviously us while we equipment is not allowed to be used by the u.s.
9:08 am
telecom providers and so they you know almost exclusively with while way it's more expensive rivals and to them you touched on just a few moments ago there are trade talks all going between both china and the u.s. not saying of course in relation to the trade tariffs that both countries want to impose and that the arguments that both are having how is this incident of holloway going to impact on those talks because the first of march twenty nine teen is the deadline for those tariffs to be implemented if the two countries card find common ground to salt their differences out. well larry kudlow of the u.s. it is here said that he doesn't see it affecting the trade negotiations but of course it takes two sides to that and so you know i weathered effects china's position is entirely unclear he general it would seem like this would escalate tensions so far they've responded by you know summoning diplomatic officials from both the u.s. canada condemning the move but certainly there's
9:09 am
a question mark of how china deals with this both whether it affects the trade talks but also whether they're going to cali one of the big questions now is if you're a well tech executive do you stop sending your executives to china there is some fear that what if they retaliate what if they arrest a u.s. or west executive when they're visiting china so i think you know it's really unclear right now but there is a lot of concern and this all gets back to the fact that no matter how much tension there might be between u.s. and china the countries are tremendously dependent on one another obviously china still needs u.s. technology and u.s. don't need strain eased companies to many of their goods so you have a lot of tension in a relationship of mutual and or see what happens in the coming weeks and months for the moments in a faint thanks so much for joining us. after weeks of violent antigovernment protests the french president is due to address the nation on monday about the also meant unions and protest groups the so-called yellow vests demonstrations were initially over fuel tax hikes but they've now become an anti government mass

movement calling for my call to resign i mean while the french finance minister says the protests have been catastrophic for the economy bennett smith has been speaking to some of the workers affected. they're the only businesses that have seen profits go up because of the yellow vest protests along with more than seventy percent of french people the owner of this window pitting company is sympathetic to the protesters motives to citizenship their anger is legitimate it would be nice if mr merkel could enable employers to give bonuses free of tax to their employees so that everyone is better off at the end of the month but i also understand the government's position saying beseech it's not easy to deal with the hours to find solutions but did you get this restaurant in central paris stayed open on a saturday but takings were down ninety percent. would be really bad of the situation persisted and got worse however it is nothing compared to the wave of
9:11 am
terror attacks from three years ago when tourists asserted paris yesterday there were futurists but it will be a lot of considerations no matter what hotels will be the most impacted but restaurants like mine will suffer as well because in fact they're working. with the power turned off in the city of light in the shops boarded up the cost of the economy is estimated to have been at least one and a half billion dollars for the protesters who took the place of christmas shoppers in central paris have succeeded in forcing the government of president emanuel to agree to their main demand and abandon a hike in fuel taxes we must now urgently work together to find a path to dialogue to provide answers to all of those french people overwhelmed by the level of taxes and even through their work. can manage to get by but this can only be done in peace in dialogue and certainly not with violence scrapping the tax rises blows a five billion dollar hole in the government's budget but the protesters want tax

9:21 am
inside story so you can stay with us. on an easy gathering the g.c.c. has met in saudi arabia but the blockade of the war in yemen but a journalist's moda overshadowed the summit can this powerful six nation block survive what does the future hold this is inside story. a welcome to the program i'm adrian finnegan leaders at officials from six gulf nations of met in the saudi capital riyadh to discuss cooperation from the economy
9:22 am
to security but its regional disunity that's hanging over the summit in his opening address saudi arabia's king solomon didn't mention the blockade of cost by his country and to other g.c.c. member states bus it's that dispute the war in yemen and the diplomatic crisis surrounding the murder of the saudi journalist the shuttering the event there was a plea however from leaders to work together. how would you know if. the gulf cooperation council states is working for the prosperity and solidarity and cohesion of these uses see gun trade is true of this country as all the ambitions will be achieved and we need all to work hard in order to keep and in. these great
9:23 am
solidarity cohesion and synergy. i don't ever there and we have faced a lot of challenges and on top of them there are other differences between our g.c.c. nations we need not to risk the interests of our peoples the peoples of the g.c.c. council states the g.c.c. must not be hesitant we need to keep our situation firm a stand firm and we need to be able to face the challenges in our region well there was one notable absentee at the meeting the emir of qatar i mean bin hamad all funny. explains why. i thought of treason to send a low ranking official there and obviously there are several reasons behind it so the from a macro perspective let's say that you are talking about the crisis still ongoing that is the blockade imposed by saudi arabia the united arab emirates i'm behind now for almost two years and specifically speaking however if this summit was to
9:24 am
take place let's say in amman or as it did last year in kuwait so very much likely that's what i would have sent the head of state to shift. sunday however the fact that this has taken place in the yard and there's been a lot of let's say. unconventional policies to put it in a diplomatic term pursued by this how do you need to ship in terms of the reports of them detaining kidnapping essentially a head of state previously prime minister satisfied eighty all of lebanon in the sense that there have been reports that the saudis together with our allies in fact tried to orchestrate some sort of cool inside ohio it isn't very surprising that the company leadership did not feel truly well confidence in funding. head of state there let's hear now from al-jazeera some of the job at who's on cattles border with saudi arabia. if this was made two thousand and seventeen we would have been standing in the middle of a very busy traffic lane where people would have been moving from cover to words
9:25 am
saudi arabia this is the only land border this country has which has been blockaded by saudi arabia the united arab emirates and behind three of the six members of the gulf cooperation council who are meeting in riyadh they have been discussing various ways of corporation and try to keep this you alive a very rare success story between these members of the middle east that has been ongoing since one nine hundred eighty one but has been facing a lot of difficulties since the blockade of qatar began it is also happening on the backdrop where journalists jamal khashoggi was murdered by agents of the saudi government where saudi arabia is also facing internal and external pressure and at the backdrop of qatar leaving the oil producing club opec as well but are insisting that its decision was based on wanting to explore more gas than any politics but the future of the g.c.c.
9:26 am
still continues to hang in the balance of where the blockading nations saying that they are confident that this this crisis is not going to change the future of this six member cooperation council but everyone else looking at it from the outside thinks that this is going to be very difficult for them to be able to keep this face on while three of their members are blockading one nation some of the al-jazeera at the blue some are a border for inside story. well the gulf cooperation council is a political and economic alliance made up of six countries saudi arabia kuwait the united arab emirates oman qatar and bahrain established in one nine hundred eighty one its aim was to provide regional national security at that time the islamic revolution in iran was taking place also the iran iraq war the g.c.c. countries are among the wealthiest in the world their primary exports being oil and gas but in june last year there was a big fall out saudi arabia led
9:27 am
a blockade which also included the way in bahrain against cattle in december the summit in kuwait was cut short after the three book aiding countries sent lower level delegations instead of heads of state and this is gathering comes amid a diplomatic crisis following the murder of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi with many people saying that the saudi crown prince is to blame mohammed bin solomon has also been criticized for his role in the war in yemen where thousands of civilians have been killed. well let's bring in our guests for today's discussion joining me here in doha is mo one couple and head of policy analysis of the arab sense of research and policy studies from kuwait city we're joined by a. professor of political science at kuwait university and from tehran moustapha. journalist and political commentator gentlemen welcome to you all. will start with
9:28 am
you given the dysfunctional relationships that exist and tension between its members does the g.c.c. have any relevance today was sunday's meeting a waste of time. well i think many people are questioning the very future of the g.c.c. indeed i mean this is not the first crisis the g.c.c. is facing group have seen many other crises before most important behalves was the one nine hundred eighty six clash between qatar and bahrain of our border dispute but perhaps this is this is the more serious crisis since the establishment of the g.c.c. in one nine hundred eighty one i think the contrary is the met the member countries are actually now having very different entrance and are having very different threat perception in one thousand eighty one it was established and is said as you said as a security as a collective security umbrella to defend the security of the member countries
9:29 am
against iran as we are not in iran they are not evolution nine hundred seventy nine at the time expressed its intention to explore the revolution to neighboring countries so this that was the key reason why the g.c.c. well established but today actually we we see that some members are facing a threat from other members within the same bloc so now i doubt that we that we have many many blocks within this one bloc we can actually delia need at least three different groups within the g.c.c. now qatar doorman on one hand we have saudi arabia emirates and body on the other hand and we have quit trying to mediate between the two so i think the summit to the end riyadh is merely. it seems to many people actually as sort of a. summit because nobody actually want to pronounce the g.c.c.
9:30 am
they everybody wanted to be alive but without as you said having a very important role to play for the time being professor in kuwait who's responsible for the current state of the g.c.c. is that cats are a man and q.h. on one side or the crown prince of saudi arabia and the united arab emirates and their policies. alist the clash of projects the essence of a law and the alliance still have a unanimous view and door to a hash out their troubles and their differences from within the organization itself and not to let it fester on and. undermined the whole establishment the whole organization now all parties are suffering that there is a serious zero sum game that is and irrationality in tackling these disputes i just
9:31 am
published a book on the g.c.c. crisis and i argue that the main reason behind such crises is that we lack at the lack of a unified vision and the lack of who is the adversity and this is the most serious dispute that has erupted over the last thirty seven years of the existence of this mall was one of the most formidable and the most successful regional out of integration organization and now the illness has bee fallen disorganization like all other arab illness and symptoms and because of that there is an urgent need to help this organization from within because this is a very damaging dispute that is undermining the very existence on the various and the future mustapha how should what's the iranian view of the current state of the
9:32 am
g.c.c. it was after all a regional grouping that was designed to counter iranian policies. well only in zero zero zero p. g.c.c. is of one of those products of the united states iran the full be a policy that started after these lawmakers aleutian in iran and through a misuse of some slogans and mulattoes and causes of the islamic revolution that was stated by iranian officials that's why some arab states especially slowly or abia and you know its allies in the out of war supported saddam hussein against iran in that war are the same climate was a spreading in the region all throughout the last several decades thanks to the united states israel and saudi arabia that have been trying to use of regional capacities and potentials against iran to harness iran to actually stop iran's
9:33 am
growth and strike at iran's economy and political dominance and influence in the region but the p. g.c.c. is. you know a failure actually because of that iran a phobia has now changed into a so before via because of the inexperienced policies exercised by the house of soul in the last couple of years of from the case to to the blockade of the tower to the war on yemen and to the massacre of the civilian population in eastern sol the arabia the world can very readily see that the arabia is exist sizing hawkish and provocative policies that could end up in wars in the region so the solow of the leaders are discrediting themselves they are weakening and all affiliated group beings and bodies in the region that are led
9:34 am
by the soul of these orders so these have. the major say in them they are also weakening accordingly and the p. g.c.c. is no exception to this fact and that's only one of the reasons the other one is the rift this might call existed between the two groups of of france within the p. g.c.c. though what the rift between qatar and kuwait on one side in the u.a.e. about rain in seoul the arabia the rift between these two groups have never been wider than present and p. g.c.c. is now believed to be a failure that would somehow be replaced by new groupings in future as you know could be seen readily mo one couple on the last gulf crisis in twenty fourteen came to an end because g.c.c. states felt they needed to show unity in the face of
9:35 am
a threat from islamic states which at that time had taken over huge swathe of territory in their own backyard the u.s. of course wants to see a unified g.c.c. now to act as a counterweight to iran in the region but the current gulf crisis as we've reported shows little sign of being result is that because i mean basically some g.c.c. countries don't perceive iran to be a threat in the way that the u.s. and saudi arabia. the absolutely right i think the saudis they have been pursuing a very damaging from policy in my opinion especially over the past two years says the ascendance of france mohammad pencil man since he became competence in two and two thousand and seventy. and i think the saudis the saudis this for this foreign policy actually is in might be in backfiring because at that time when they are actually saying that they want to cut to counter act. policies and the region and yemen and syria and iraq and and lebanon everywhere they are in fact as i said best
9:36 am
selling a very damaging foreign policy because they. policy led in fact to dividing. the air it also actually led to increasing iranian influence somehow and and the region by actually forcing qatar to. get closer to iran and you know qatar in fact has withdrawn its ambassador from tehran in two thousand in early two thousand and sixteen during the crisis of. the storming of the of the saudi embassy in tehran and the saudi consulate in so the saudis maybe need to to rethink their foreign policy if they want really to counter act iran but i don't agree with with that with the statement that in two thousand and fourteen it was they need to show unity i think it was ended in two thousand and fourteen because their vote with there was no much support and sympathy by the
9:37 am
obama administration with the saudis that a moderate is under heinies the obama administration was not in fact at that time willing to go as far as this administration in supporting the saudis that in monarchies and the behind the is and the blockade against against qatar that is the key factor in my opinion which has led to that two thousand and fourteen the end of the crisis in two thousand and fourteen in my opinion that was a truce more than ending the crisis because it was a new mood again in two thousand and seventeen professor. the g.c.c. long ago abandoned its role of building closer ties between member states why continue with it saudi arabia and the u.a.e. already have an economic and military partnership why don't. you and q. wait for the regional grouping which perhaps brings in iran and turkey to. thank you for your alarm is just a bottle to our guests from iran i hope you will quit using the.
9:38 am
p. g.c.c. it's not feed you see see the it's called the other gulf states here is for the states their heritage their race not for the persian saw that there is really a for be where they are any ends they keep saying. g.c.c. so please quit say using that term we're not disputing now we're not gonna argue with the semantic of our diversion our indian government talking about the arab gulf states the us for the states and not for the gulf. then to god in the fall the it's not only on it was also saddam hussein regarding the g.c.c. i think there is a need for this organization to keep going on yes it's limping yes it's lingering but at the end of the day g.c.c. is used to be or has been the most successful integration organization there
9:39 am
is a need for it to stay even the meeting today the summit that is have right now and riyadh and saudi arabia as all gulf leaders have argued very convincingly that we need the g.c.c. organization to keep going and just holding the annual summit on an annual basis on a regular basis uninterrupted since nine hundred eighty one is a testament to the resilience of this organization yes and the alliance will have troubles and the alliance will have disputes but. it's not unsurmountable it could be solved but that has to be a political a political will among the g.c.c. leaders because there is a much needed need for the southern ization to continue to face all the challenges and the troubles that is emanating from iran from from a fractured iraq from a terrorist organization and there is
9:40 am
a need also at the worst also though i would love to see a united g.c.c. president from the talks about the may set the middle east certificate alliance how could you have that alliance when you have a major dispute like the the g.c.c. crisis and result you cannot talk about. the luxury of forming a formidable military alliance to stand up to the all the challenges facing our region and you don't even discuss or you try to solve. this dispute that has been going on for too long and a zero sum game that's really weakening all party. involved and strengthening our adversities so i hope call ahead and brushing the lead would prevail and we will have to sort out this crisis that we have withstood so many crises before including the iran iraq war including the the nine eleven attacks including the disputes
9:41 am
among did you see see themselves but this is the most critical and because of that there is an urgent need for it to resolve it before a long stuff. i want to get bogged down about a in this discussion about about what to call this this group ing what impact has the g.c.c. had on iran in terms of politics the economy security has it been held in check regionally by the g.c.c. . not at all actually you know iran has always reiterated that it is once the best relations with the regional states including the arab states on the southern whims of the persian gulf and you know this is been the sole these that have been you know starting this provocative policy against iran and its allies so this all these have been marginalized right now in that in political equations in syria and in iraq now let's get back to the opec where qatar has been
9:42 am
also bothered and know it by the soul of the policies and it's threatened to leave opec to weaken the organisation you know if it loses its members it would be weakened more than before and it's all because of the saudis over supplying the market they tried to sabotage the market to bring down the prices through their over supply but because they are totally dependent on oil revenues they sustain the harms more than anyone else so the solow these inexperienced hawkish policies and the against iran to prove that they could lead the front against iran they have caused much harm not just to others but also to themselves they might go bankrupt after a rich country like solve the arabia had somewhere around one hundred billion dollars of budget deficit last year the saudis are paying in the saudi people are paying

for these naive policies and kept our has various smartly i believe this thing itself from seoul the arabia in the war in yemen they change sides after a while very smartly now we can see the saudi arabia cannot even win one you know not just the whole war but also a single battle in order to win the upper hand in the negotiations they have failed in whole they the port city. battle and they can not get out of this quagmire this since itself after the riff under sold is intended to punish them of a but they failed and this hawkish policy in saudi arabia towards doha has pushed the hawk who are still ran more than ever oman has not changed sides it has remained so it is in good terms with iran and with the opposite sides both but it has not this from iran so as you see the roofs of widening and there are clear i know you're short of time
