5:04 am
highlight its importance ultimately everything will have to be settled between the israelis and the palestinians but what is important is that this meeting illustrates regional support for dist process in other words the arab states are unified. in their support for the. peace plan the israeli palestinian conflict once again is getting attention but it's not clear this latest effort will be the way to peace for the palestinians and the israelis rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington struck because of the palestinian authority and its rival hamas have both denounced a u.s. plan accusing trump of trying to buy them off in return for not having their own state amasses senior political leaders says the whole thing is a fox. the conference held at the moment in bahrain is a political conference with an economic coverup it is totally
5:05 am
a political event with the financial and economic camouflage simply for the reason that this conference and the deal called the deal of the century is aimed at achieving the following 1st to lay the foundation for terminating the palestinian kohls sake and giving the green light to the zionist enemy to extend its occupation and control over the entire west bank al-jazeera as rob matheson has more from gaza city. it's estimated there are 2000000 people living in gaza at the moment that's about 5600 every square kilometer but the streets of gaza city are quieter this tuesday morning because there's a general strike which is opposed to the economic part of the u.s. plan to try to find a solution to the israeli palestinian crisis according to palestinian official figures in 2852 percent of gazans didn't have jobs gaza's infrastructure is struggling on tuesday morning israel said it wasn't sending any
5:06 am
fuel to gaza's only power plant and they said it was because gazans had been flying balloons carrying flares into israel in the hopes of setting fires. under the u.s. plan that gaza would be entitled to a share of about $28000000000.00 in fasting that would be designed to rebuild the infrastructure and it hopes to create about a 1000000 jobs but people here in gaza say that's not the point the main priority for them is a political solution gazans say that the u.s. plan is designed to distract from the main political objectives the right to return to land which they say is theirs and the removal of controls put on them by mainly the israelis now the israelis say those controls and necessary to stop weapons coming into gaza that could be used against them but the gazans say those controls are at least in part responsible. for the poor state of gaza's economy be safe remove the controls and the economy will improve for the people of gaza the
5:07 am
important point is to find a political solution to this crisis i don't need them with the start talking about the money in lebanon the palestinian political goal fatah organized protests in the refugee camp in southern beirut more than $9000.00 palestinian refugees a cramped into the camp which was set up by the red cross in 1949 as in a harder has more. the children of the $948.00 palestinian refugees now living in lebanon they're taking part in this demonstration to protest the conference taking place in bahrain which is this causing the trumpet ministrations middle east economic peace plan people here are angry because they believe the trumpet ministration is pushing for a peace settlement that does not involve the right to return these refugees have been living in exile for 17 years now and they believe any solution to the israeli
5:08 am
palestinian conflict the power to involve the rights to return like this very difficult here they live in urban camps in very dire conditions and so the feeling here or the message from the path to follow stein is a not for sale no matter how much money you offer us we are not going to give up our rights to return home. but the palestinian president has expressed in terms of the rejection to the bahrain summit echoes the folds of every palestinian in the diaspora we stand behind the palestinian national leadership and its decisions we say no to the deal of the century palestine will not be sold we cling to our right to return to palestine we cling to the land of our ancestors but this is our right to the end of time. the deal of the century is not new for the palestinians are 5 who continue whether they agree or not we don't care about what's happening we have men and refugees in europe and all around the world and
5:09 am
they will never let go of palestine everything that's happening now is nonsense our weapons are pointed at the zionist enemy. palestinians feel the united states is not an honest broker and they believe that its alliance with israel means that any settlement that they propose will be tilted in favor of the israelis and the question they ask here is that if they care so much about our economic conditions that. why don't they lift the siege on gaza and why did the us administration decide to cut funding to the united nations relief and works agency under water which is the only organization providing help to these people 11 on the host country is also not attending the back room of a conference in solidarity with the palestinians lebanese officials fear that the deal of the century of the so-called deal of the century will involve naturalizing and resettling palestinian refugees in the host country something that this country says it will not accept. donald trump has threatened to obliterate iran if it
5:10 am
attacks anything american the u.s. president delivered the warning via twitter in the new war of words where the iran tehran has condemned new u.s. sanctions as idiotic saying by force from the iranian capital. in his 1st public appearance since iran shot down a u.s. surveillance drone last week president hassan rouhani did not hold back he said the latest sanctions targeting iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei are the irrational actions of a confused government didn't know it they are suffering from mental disability the white house is afflicted with mental retardation and doesn't know what to do. the supreme leader occupies such a protected position in public life that in iran insulting him is illegal in the u.s. applying her status to someone so highly revered has angered leaders and to her own right but of only your own band a lobbyist not me he is not only the leader of iran and he is the leader of iran and those who love the revolution and all muslims shia and non sheo all around the
5:11 am
world iran's leader doesn't only belong to ron many people in lebanon syria iraq afghanistan pakistan kuwait and everywhere shia and non shia love him follow him and obey him and someone who has lost his mind does such a stupid and strange thing and for washington's the us. iran is under such sweeping sanctions that the. latest american move is entirely symbolic but later this week washington has said it will add iran's foreign minister zarif to the sanctions list attacking the country's top diplomat is something to her and says permanently closes the path to diplomacy making an enemy go if you're being honest and want to negotiate simultaneously do you want to impose sanctions on the foreign minister so it is clear that you are lying as the u.s. continues its pressure campaign russia has vowed to help iran counter new u.s. sanctions if. iran has been and remains our ally and
5:12 am
partner and we consistently develop our relations both bilateral and multilateral which means any attempt to portray tehran as a main threat to regional security or to bring it into line with isis or other terrorist groups is unacceptable to us. but some u.s. officials remain undeterred the president has held the door open to real negotiations to completely and verifiably eliminated iran's nuclear weapons program its pursuit of ballistic missile delivery systems its support for international terrorism and its other malign behavior worldwide all that iran needs to do is to walk through that open door. on tuesday foreign minister zarif said once again iran's religious views mean it will never pursue a nuclear weapon and he also reminded people that america is the only basin to ever drop nuclear bombs on another country world leaders want cooler heads to prevail
5:13 am
and washington keeps saying that it wants to calm things down through dialogue but the decision to sanction iran's supreme leader is something so insulting that protect one it might make a negotiated solution nearly impossible. to iran. u.s. special counsel robert muller will publicly testify before 2 committees next month where a shooter reforged in april on russian interference in the 2016 u.s. presidential election in a statement and statement last month he raised questions over whether donald trump had obstructed justice but said a sitting president could not be charged with a crime patty cohen has the details from washington. some new information coming out that now former special counsel robert muller is going to testify before 2 house committees in open session he's doing this under subpoena now this is all going to happen july 17th and it is going to be run on all of the television
5:14 am
programs this is not going to be welcome news u.s. president donald trump because after the special counsel submitted his report to the attorney general the attorney general waited a few weeks to put that report out but he did summarize the findings basically saying no conclusion no obstruction in the investigation into russian interference in the 26th election now if you read the report that's not exactly what the special counsel was saying there were muller said he didn't want to do this he didn't want to testify he said read the report but the bottom line is not many americans and not all members of congress have actually read the $400.00 plus pages much less the $45.00 page summary so this is going to be a chance for democrats to set the narrative to put out all the damaging information in the report on camera that can be looped around for the american people to watch over and over again now there are some democrats in the house who have said this report should lead to impeachment hearings the leadership has not wanted to go there they say the american public is not for impeachment this will be the
5:15 am
democrats' best chance to try and change public opinion and whether or not the u.s. president should be impeached. much more still ahead on this news hour including aids arrives in uganda for people fleeing fighting in democratic republic of congo with nothing but their lies zimbabwe and sphere the return of hyper inflation as their local dollar is revives 10 years after they became worthless and in sport australia a recent cricket world cup semifinals empire the pressure on hosts england peter will have the option come in. saudi arabia's crown prince monod been solomon is arriving shortly in south korea for a 2 day visit ahead of the g 20 summit in japan it's the highest level visit to south korea by a leader in more than 2 decades and it's the crown prince 1st foreign visit since
5:16 am
a un special investigator said the death of journalist jamal khashoggi was an extrajudicial killing that sound eurabia was responsible for at speak to our correspondent in seoul rob mcbride rob the timing of the visit is significant to what is the crown prince's schedule when he arrives. that's right some have been solomon's visit it is a significant one and coming at a significant time as you mentioned foley his arrival here has been slightly delayed he was due to arrive just over an hour ago he is expected to arrive about now at a military air base south of seoul he'll then be proceeding to the presidential office here in seoul the blue house where he'll be having a meeting with south korea's president in then also signing a memorandum of understanding covering a number of different areas of trade and then an important invitation only luncheon with some of south korea's leading business people from its largest conglomerates among them signing song hyundai motors s.k. and l.g.
5:17 am
and it is very much about trade but as you mentioned there this does come several days after the report by the special rapporteur from the u.n. concluding that saudi arabia is responsible for the death of gemayel who showed she so this is seen as very much also about about saudi arabia's rehabilitation of its reputation and that of its crown prince in the world busy as you said a very important curtain raiser coming ahead of the g. 20 it remains to be seen though with this report being submitted to the u.n. today wednesday where just how much of an impact that is likely to have whether it does overshadow the crown prince's appearance at the g 20 as indeed it did in the crown prince's appearance at the g. 20 at the end of last year coming just after the show when it was being realized just how much the crown prince was being implicated in that or
5:18 am
a number of world leaders distancing themselves from the crowd prince during those photo ops and so on thank you for that rob mcbride live for us in seoul well let's not speak some more about this too andrea abraham ian who's the current fellow at stanford universe. city enjoin despise cut from sunday in south korea thank you so much for joining us as rob mentioned there at the g. 20 meeting in argentina in november last year the saudi crown prince face outrage of over the death of jamal khashoggi he was isolated do you think it's going to be the case again this year how will will he be received in asia. well there are a couple of issues hanging over the g. 21 of the protests in hong kong which the chinese are going to be reticent to talk about on the other perhaps is this un report about jamal khashoggi as for how the prince will be received here in seoul frankly this is not of very it's not a high priority issues for south korea so if you look at the front page this
5:19 am
morning of the major newspapers is it doesn't appear at all and if you scroll down the web pages of these newspapers it's maybe the 25th or $26.00 top story so it's pretty low key as far as the korean public is concerned if it if it's low key then what can mom had been some hope to achieve on this trip to south korea and to japan made teddy think he'll be able to reestablish his credentials as a world lead. well it's it's unlikely that south korea will be a springboard for his reputation globally i think it's more about trying to establish a trade relationship or an investment relationship that aspires fairly limited but the south koreans were very spooked by a series of chinese sanctions that were imposed on them a couple years ago and they've recognized that they need to diversify their supply chains and investments outside of china so they'll be looking to the saudis to provide a platform into the middle east for
5:20 am
a broader range of investments as for the political relationship and human rights i imagine that will be generally ignored and saudi arabia is also very keen has been keen to deepen its economic ties beyond the west as we saw him on a been summoned visit india and pakistan earlier this year as the kingdom it seems turns towards asia and tries to diversify also its alliances how do you see the region's geopolitics and the geopolitics of the world as a whole plane to this. well for korea saudi arabia is the talk or oil supplier and especially given that the united states has ended a waiver that south korea had to import iranian oil that relationship becomes more important than ever so the south koreans can't really afford to make a big issue of to show g. or any of saudi arabia's other activities that we academics or the international
5:21 am
community might find disturbing so really this this this meeting will be i think kind of the beginning of a relationship as i understand it there won't be any concrete deals signed there will be a memorandum of understanding and and these conglomerates leaders business leaders of these conglomerates we pitching ideas but i think very little concrete will come out of this visit ok thank you so much for talking to us we appreciate your insights. the u.s. house of representatives has approved a 4500000000 dollars aid package sure address surging numbers of asylum seekers coming across the mexican border the package includes new standards for people held in custody following reports of children and during appalling conditions the democratic controlled house voted 232-1952 pass the measure but its future is uncertain donald trump says he'll veto that legislation kyra long is a senior researcher at human rights watch last week she visited it's i visited
5:22 am
a texas detention center where hundreds of children have been held a situation that we found in the clint border patrol station was that all of the so-called unaccompanied children in that region in that area were being concentrated in this one detention center and when we arrived there we got a roster that said there were over $350.00 children in the facility and so we started asking to see children you know we don't have the right to see the facility under the terms of the agreement that we were inside the facility on but we could speak with them so we started calling the young children we started calling children who appeared to have been there for a long time and what we found is that kids were living in overcrowded cells they were eating the same food they were not allowed outside for significant periods of time there was nothing to do no no sort of child friendly activities at all. and they were dirty they didn't have access regular access to showers or toothbrushes

5:24 am
a request to free former president. lula da silva from prison you know his lawyers say the judges convicted him of corruption was biased that judge sergio morrow is not serving as justice minister under present day across a narrow maze monitoring developments from when a size. this latest appeal to free the former president of brazil lula da silva from prison was inspired by revelations in the us online newspaper the intercept that the judge who put him behind bars sergio model was undermined was compromised by colluding with the prosecutors in the car wash or lover shuttle case which accused of corruption has denied those charges all along he said the case against him has always been politically motivated to remove him from the presidential race last year opening the way for a job also now to win an overwhelming victory and take over the presidency earlier

reduction the u.n. special roberts or an extreme poverty philip alston warns hundreds of millions will face worsening food insecurity and disease. all regions will actually be affected but within any regions it will be the relatively poor people. their concern is that there will be some form of climate apartheid where the rich will be busily prying themselves out trying to secure protection etc people who are less well off and absolutely all regions of the world will bear the brunt of climate change so really a major issue in terms of poverty and the need to try to promote a comprehensive solution to the challenge it's not really a fight against climate change that we should be looking at what the problem is that if there is going to be any. repenting or if they are
5:27 am
warming we need to be undertaking dramatically measures now the sort of things that have been doing in most countries not doing currently. affair in terms of the scale of the need obligations are not focused on what needs to be done and not focused on the extent of the challenge all of the change that needs to be brought about we asked all of sleep or going into our climate change horror story among the stories we have coming up crackdown in egypt will tell you who's being arrested and what the government is calling a counterterrorism operation and the wimbledon champion looks ahead to defend his title or has as.

5:31 am
u.s. middle east peace plan he says is the opportunity of the century for palestinians but they have rejected the plan saying a political solution is needed 1st the war of words between iran and the u.s. has escalated again donald trump is threatening to obliterate parts of iraq if it attacks anything american and iran's president says new u.s. sanctions could kill any. hopes of diplomacy and u.s. special counsel robert morvillo will publicly testify before 2 committees next month he issued his report in april on russian interference in the 2600 presidential election which raise questions over whether donald trump obstructed justice. more now on our top story the u.s. economic plan for palestinians a proposal depends on $50000000000.00 from donor nations and investors more than half of that money would be spent in palestinian territories the rest would be divided between lebanon and jordan any chips the plan aims to create a 1000000 new jobs and improve living standards for palestinians within the next 10
5:32 am
years and among 179 proposals infrastructure and business projects a 5000000000 dollar transport cord or to connect the occupied west bank and gaza but is need even reports from the occupied west bank palestinian say financial incentives alone cannot solve a conflict that's lasted decades. israeli restrictions on palestinian businesses are so tight even salt can sift through the only palestinian salt factory is feeling the pinch palestinian businessman who believes his company's problems cannot be solved by economy incentives only the military area so we are restricted in getting any type of permits to. expand with existing buildings things that we want is not giveaways but actually business opportunities not only does the company need israeli co-ordination to pump water from the dead sea it also takes him a lot of time and money to export the salt using israeli controlled ports the
5:33 am
factory that employs $25.00 workers is the only palestinian owned business on the shores of the dead sea and has hardly changed or been improved since it started in the early 1960 s. owners need israeli permission before they can build any structure in this area sometimes they never get it it took 30 years before the go head was given to. the factories the main source of salt for palestinians including many businesses in the occupied west bank like many other palestinian businesses the owner of this food pickle in business says profits could triple if he had under strict access to land and water as well as free movement of products israel controls all water supplies in the west bank the palestinian water authority estimates that palestinians can only use 15 percent of their water resources israelis use that meaning 85 percent of former economy minister for the palestinian authority and businessman. says that economy prosperity needs to be in parallel with the
5:34 am
political process so we don't believe in cosmetics surgeries here and there we believe in lifting occupation but that means lifting the siege on the west bank. on gaza this will give us the space to grow the space to work in a further restriction to cripple the economy the israeli government restricts palestinians from using 60 percent of the land in the west bank to be. factories or anything else. the core of the crisis goes back to the establishment of the palestinian authority the gay sions of the people in your territory has been transferred to the palestinian authority at the same time it inherited a weak economy. is the root of the doctrine of tax revenues which it collects on behalf of the palestinian authority is at the heart of the authorities financial crisis that says palestinians coupled with reduced aid from foreign donors as well as the long standing restrictions on businesses further blocks the route to economy
5:35 am
progress in. the occupied west bank. amnesty international says egypt is using counterterrorism as a cover for crackdown on its opponents it follows the arrests of 8 people including human rights lawyers journalists politicians and activists they're accused of having links to the band's muslim brotherhood group they're also accused of plotting protests during the upcoming anniversary of the military coup which deposed president mohammed morsy in 2013 morsi died last week after collapsing in court when i speak to diouf amina who's an assistant professor at long island university and a member of the gyptian rule of law association she is via skype from north runs week in the u.s. thank you so much dalia for being with us amnesty international says the egyptian authorities have intensified their crackdown on opposition and civil society what is fueling this what's the reason behind the renewed crackdown. so there are several reasons amnesty international actually declared today that egypt has become
5:36 am
an open air prison because there is no space for opposition or any independent reporting now if you look at who was arrested we don't know the numbers but we do know that there are about 7 or 8 prominent figures but there are also many activists that arrests that we don't know i'm one of them was a prominent member of the social democratic party in the civil democratic movement who took part in the january 25th revolution who is perceived as a viable opposition figure we saw the arrest of an economist who has been critical of the current economic situation in egypt to journalists the former campaign manager of the presidential candidate hamdeen sabbahi we saw a senior leader of the dignity party and the reason why. a coalition of independent secular and left leaning people coming together to possibly contest the coming parliamentary election is deemed a threat now their last meeting was just monday and so for this to happen right
5:37 am
after their meeting signals that they're as their lawyer says that we are not just seeing a further clamping down we used to think of well it was the muslim brotherhood islamist leading individuals who be arrested you would see activist arrests but now any viable candidate for a possible parliamentary or political seat is also being arrested so what precisely then it's a government accusing these people who've been arrested recently off i mean are they going to have a trial what are they accused of. so they're accused of allegedly carrying out possibly planning to carry out violent and disorderly acts and so you have to remember the new egypt the terrorism law is so broad and sweeping that disorderly acts also includes insulting the state or working in concert to for example run for elections or possibly contest authority in the state and so technically in many ways or terrorism charges holdall there terrorism charges are
5:38 am
very broad and sweeping in so you can some of them are accused of having associations for example the muslim brotherhood now again these are secular and leftist activists night and so we are seeing is here we are coming upon a nother anniversary the june 30th anniversary and this is a way to kind of put fabricated charges to spread fear amongst society now this comes on the heels of a word we saw just yesterday to the laws passed they give presidency seek further judicial control over the state where he can choose now judicial leaders so number one you have a rubber stamp parliament these are people attempting to contest the rubber to the parliament and coming elections they were forming a possible coalition looks abroad and within egypt and you see that the judiciary is also becoming kind of consolidated around the president himself right now all of this comes on the heels of the dramatic death of the former president in court last
5:39 am
night and as i put any pressure at all on the government the death of morsi has it put pressure on the government. well we have seen international human rights organizations amnesty international human rights watch so declare that this was actually a slow killing of the president we saw up until last year members of european parliament so say that president morsi was going to die a premature death because of the conditions but in the past week aside from a few members of parliament for example in germany and in europe and throughout the middle east we haven't seen any western figures stand up and say the president of a nation died and we call for a formal investigation we have seen calls for independent investigation from members of the crew free but no western government has called for an independent this you should have the death of the leader and so all of the sudden concert begs the question of what is happening in egypt and why is the international community
5:40 am
continue to be silent on increased repression and on what amnesty international call today an open air prison dalia fahmy thank you so much for your insight very good to have you with us on al-jazeera die a funny assistant professor at long island university joining us there from the u.s. thank you for your time. international food aid has begun arriving for refugees who've been forced from their homes by fighting in eastern democratic republic of congo but aid workers are struggling to reach tens of thousands of others trapped in areas where militia groups have been attacking villages catherine sori reports from neighboring uganda way many have fled. $7000.00 congolese have come to this come for safety on the shores of lake the ugandan boda they've escaped from fighting in the eastern province of the tory in the democratic republic most of them want to cross into uganda but have lost everything and the johnny is too expensive i don't know i'm leaving in this camp with my 5 children because i cannot
