launching up to zero life from a headquarters and. also ahead just days after calling north korea a growing threat the white house announced as a second summit between donald trump and kim jong il and. chanting step down that's protesters keep up the pressure on sudan's president a month after the demonstrations began. and a mexican oil pipeline explodes killing more than twenty people after being ruptured by suspected. hello a prominent u.s. senator who's close to donald trump has the clear that america's relationship with saudi arabia cannot move forward until the crown prince is dealt with lindsey graham made the remarks in ankara where he's been meeting with the turkish president raja play
a bird graham's been fiercely critical of muhammad been cited monic using him of being complicit in the murder of saudi journalist john. what has transpired over the last couple of years has been unnerving to say the least the leadership coming from. imprisoning the lebanese prime minister. taking all of your critics and throwing them in prison. the brutal murder of mr show in turkey. every norm of. international behavior. his can including the relationship between saudi arabia and the united states cannot move forward until in the us has been dealt with while senator graham also discussed the planned withdrawal of u.s. troops from syria saying he hopes it doesn't happen until eisel is the stored once
and for all while brett mcgurk he's the former u.s. envoy to the anti eisel coalition says there is no chance of that's warning the pull out will only give the armed group new life osama bin job it is joining us from guys end up in turkey close to the syrian border we'll talk about what he said on syria and i saw in a moment some of the first on saudi arabia and from i'd been salamon so he's spoken out again on that yet he was a very specific on what he means by dealt with. well that is very clear that lindsey graham has had a track record of how he feels about the involvement of the saudi arabian government in terms of what happened at the at the at the consulate in turkey where jamal khashoggi was killed he has added his voice to a series of u.s. senators from both sides of the aisle as well as human rights activists and other
governments saying that the saudi government needs to come out in the open and make itself clare and transparent about what transpired instead of hanging and. providing death sentences to people who were not clear when i were involved in this particular killing the cia has indicted bomber been so mine its conclusion was that the order of the killing did not come directly from these low level operatives but had to come direct from the a leadership in saudi arabia is a b. mohammed bin so mom but that is in contrast to what the united states president believes this and lindsey graham is this latest statements to deal with mama than someone is going to be directed towards u.s. president donald trump as well who sees still mohammed bin solomon as a close ally of the united states policy in the middle east the so-called dean of the century all of it on a very key role that saudi arabia needs to play and the u.s.
president has been standing by it but this is in contrast to what the u.s. president has been saying but in line with what the turkish president has been saying the turkish government believes that the orders for the killing of journalist amal to shakti came directly from the top and it believes that the at the lawns of power including the crown prince are involved and not only syria policy and the withdrawal of u.s. troops that had been announced by trump concerns senator graham has always said so what is he trying to achieve by visiting ankara at this moment. well it was a very clear message one of the things that he said in this news conference in ankara today was that if americans want to feel safe at home they need to deal with what is happening in syria he talked about various things including the influence of iran and how immediate pullout will embolden forces which are allied to iran he also spoke about how the u.s. administration is trying to untangle itself for from the white b.g.
an offshoot of a kurdish fighters with turkey regards as terrorists and it wants to create this a storm that turkey has been demanding for years on the turkish syrian border the issues at hand are not just the safe zone but also what happens in the town of bamby git's the city where these kurdish fighters have been in control in with the help from united states lindsey graham saying that he's seen evidence which clearly links the why p.g. to the p.k. k. an organization considered a terrorist organization not just by turkey but the united states the e.u. and other world countries as well so it is going to be two separate things the roadmap in what happens in miami beach so that it is not handed over to bashar al assad's government when there is a vacuum that is created when the u.s. forces withdraw all saw the formation of this thirty kilometer border security safe zone they did which is going to be manned by turkey and it hasn't been clear on how
it is going to transpire what are going to be these arrangements because you have to remember that these kurdish fighters have not just been held but also been supplied with heavy weapons from the united states something that lindsey graham says that the u.s. is considering an army all right thank you for that at this and doesn't have. to have another summit next month as he tries to get the north korean leader to give up his nuclear program critics say little has really changed since their last meeting which some have dismissed as a photo opportunity how to contain reports from washington d.c. . they smiled for the cameras quickly and then got back to the top u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh and north korean negotiator kim yong chill then went off to the white house behind closed doors a ninety minute meeting with president donald trump the white house claimed progress the united states is going to continue to keep pressure and sanctions on north korea until we see fully and verify denuclearization we've had very
good steps and good faith from the north koreans in releasing the hostages and other moves and so we're going to continue those conversations and the president looks forward to next his next meeting that the white house says that will be a to get to be disclosed location at the end of february the state department announced the discussions continued for hours after as secretary pompei o treated the north korean delegation to lunch at their d.c. hotel the last time the two leaders met the president declared the problem solved north korea would do nuclearize but since then satellite images show work continues on their missile delivery sites but the white house says the focus should be on what the north hasn't done test any new nukes or missiles the problem wasn't solved after the first summit so now it appears the two sides will try again and soon patty klein al-jazeera washington well there are more protests in sudan the latest in a month the growing demands for the president to go what began as an outcry over the rising cost of bread has become the biggest challenge to thirty year rule havel
morgan reports in the capital hard to. mohammed abdul haps brothers left home and ten days ago and never came back he joined anti-government protests in sudan second largest city on demand. we didn't realize he was shot while we were protesting security forces were coming at us and we ran for a bit and he said he couldn't he thought he twisted his arm then we learned he sustained a bullet wound we hid in a house and tried to give him first aid that's when you notice that he was also shot in the back when we were able to get to the hospital he was weak and lost away an hour later three protesters were killed that day human rights activists say at least fifty have lost their lives in the month long protests demanding the resignation of president obama and bashir the government total is much lower protests started when the government announced a rise in the price of bread the outcry spread to other towns and cities nationwide and police have repeatedly fired bullets and tear gas to disperse crowds hospitals
and doctors have been attacked by security forces for treating protesters. demands to end bashir thirty year rule can be heard in every protest march it's been one month since people started protesting to demand change people have been expressing their frustration at the way president bashir has been running the country for the past thirty years despite the use of live ammunition and tear gas the protest seems to be gathering strength and for weeks on the president remains defiant was president bashir described protested a stranger's influence by foreign agents after criticism by the e.u. when the u.s. attacks on unarmed protesters sudan's government lawyer is promising to investigate . we will be looking into the deaths that occurred during the protests and urged people who have information to come forward and presented to us so we can conclude what happened and how people have been killed we'll also look into those injured and those who had their property destroyed in the demonstrations but she remains
wanted by the international criminal court. arms and crimes against humanity in the western region of dar for some analysts see the biggest challenge he's yet faced at home has the potential to end his rule. will this movement will be successful in changing the regime is true that the government doesn't see that but it can happen that can happen through a new political party taking over the ruling party sidestepping bashir and bringing someone else in his place but one thing we can be sure of is that saddam before the nineteenth of december is not the same saddam post ninety december when the protests started. bashir has promised economic reforms but it's protests continue into a second month some sudanese see they're ready to sacrifice their lives to see change changes which president bashir doesn't appear ready to meet people morgan al-jazeera hearts on how jews kuipers an activist a member of girl if you know that's a nonviolent resistance movement which is helping to organize the protests and
speaking to us from morocco he said the demonstrations show people have been fed up for a long time and this is a decentralized movement that's happening and there's always the groups and they're all uniting on one card which is like if you need to go and a lot of the organization is happening a coalition through the professional. association and there is called for progress and when the call comes out. because i see it is not the one organizing on the ground all these different groups work in a decentralized way to get people to people from different cities from different neighborhoods they all come together and they are organizing a small cell and everybody comes together because they know the call is coming so it's a different way a movement that some people a lot of people within the national congress party the ruling party are actually turning and thinking that they need change too so then we've been hearing more and more voices.
