7:02 am
regional security and trade just saw the issues being discussed. the informal alliance of foreign nations is aim that countering china's influence across the asia pacific region. during the meeting, u. s. president joe biden said russia's invasion of the crime shows the importance of the quote. you know, shortly before rochelle launched this invasion, my administration published aradondo pacific strategy to advance a free open, connected, secure, and resilient in no pacific. russia's assault and ukraine only heightens the importance of those goals. but fundamental principles of international order, territorial integrity and sovereignty. international law, human rights must always be defendant, ricardo's worth are violated in the world. rob mcbride says china has reacted negatively towards ken says, the motivations for summit china as china suspects that are all of the
7:03 am
adversaries meeting like this in a, in a gang and effectively ganging up on it is, is meant to constrain its development and what it regards is its own back yard, especially after biden's comments yesterday, monday, when he said that the u. s. yes. would intervene militarily to stop china from invading taiwan. people are still trying to work out exactly how serious he was with that comment or whether it was a case of awkward misspeak. but certainly if china reserved beforehand, it is certainly up to now and it always regards this with deep suspicion. because when you look at the kinds of things that they are talking about when it comes to regional security, they all does seem to be aimed directly or indirectly towards china. for example, the setting up of telecommunication systems which are robust, which are secure. how do you do that with 5 g and then 6, g, a reading between the lines. it is these ally saying, how do we do that without having to call upon chinese telecommunications giants
7:04 am
like choir away, for example, which it, there is a certain amount of distrust over then again, the sourcing of goods from this part of the world. how can you make sure that there is no force labor involved? again, that seems to be a shorthand way of saying, let's not buy anything from shin jang. and finally, they will be looking, for example, at maritime surveillance, at how to detect and prevent illegal fishing. well, that seems to be illegal, chinese fishing, because that they would seem to be allegedly the biggest culprits when it comes to flouting maritime regulations with its big industrialized fishing fleets across the, the pacific and indian oceans. while benomar hardy shut round, isn't a junked professor in international affairs at temple university, japan needs says regional trident security are likely to be part of the quad discussions. it is deemed to replace the p p p from which donald trump had withdrawn. and so this is a way to also kind of the war to the trade ambitions of china,
7:05 am
which as we all know, concluded the, our separate treaty about a year ago or just a few months ago as a matter of fact. so there is obviously a trade agreement or trade pact that is meant to, to compete and to pose and alternative to the chinese lead economic agreement that was recently signed. this is very important for joe biden to demonstrate to the world that the commitment to the region is on a wavering this come in may have been going on for years, going back to the obama administration. but there has been, there have been doubts over the last few months given the ukraine invasion. so this is a clear message that biden is sending not only to china, but the rest of the world about its commitment to the region. her russian soldier has been jailed for life by ukrainian court for war crimes. 21 year old. she married, admitted to killing an unarmed civilian in the northeast in sumi region. it's the 1st such trial since russia invaded ukraine 3 months ago. same but probably has
7:06 am
more on the trial from keith. what we have here is a gentleman named she marin, a 21 year old tank commander in the russian military. he was accused of killing a civilian, a 62 year old resident of a village and assuming the region in the initial days of the war. now, what marian was saying during the trial is that he was ordered to carry out the shooting of this man who was riding a bicycle near his home. he said during the course of the trial that he refused initially to carry out the orders, but was threatened if he did not. and therefore took the shot and killed the 62 year old resident and assuming region. now he was faced with the wife of the victim . during the trial, the wife of the victim asked him how he felt at the time of carrying out these orders. he said he felt fear, and he expressed regret. nonetheless, he was given a life sentence, something the wife of this victim had requested during the trial,
7:07 am
either a life sentence or that this russian soldier be exchanged in a prisoner swap for ukrainian captured ukrainian soldiers in russian custody. now what we are likely to see is many more such cases as this conflict continues. we've got 2 pilots, possibly being seen in court in coming days. that's the next case. on the horizon and ukrainian prosecutors are investigating more and more cases of what they're calling a legit war crimes on a near daily basis. so this is unlikely to be the last time that we see some kind of a court case. quickly adjourned, with regards to russian soldiers being accused of war crimes. in this, in this war, a senior russian diplomat has resigned in protest over the ukraine war saying he's never been so ashamed of his country, boris on data of work that rushes un mission in geneva. in a statement posted online, he said, president putin aggressive war was

americans will move from freezing, rushed from state assets to seizing those state assets, and using put into war chest as ukraine's reparation fund. and that is the debate that we haven't yet had in the international economic community. because of co that this is dev also isn't happening in the snow in january. it was cancelled last year and postponed earlier this year. normally, russian officials attend, but this year the building used for the russia house exhibition center has been transformed to highlight human rights abuses, has been renamed, the house of russia and war crimes. the war in ukraine will continue to reverberate around dive also. meetings continue here. this week, not just the events on the ground, but the economic effects with a similar tiniest global energy crisis and global food crisis. james bays al jazeera devils. another speaker,
7:11 am
the world economic forum has been the head of the world food program. they've had beasley, lisa, people don't realize how big an impact ukraine's war is having on hunger were facing the worst humanitarian crisis since war 2. just when you think it couldn't get any worse over a year ago, you had ethiopia, then you had f. candice then and then the bread basket of the world. this now got the longest bread lands of the world. and so now because of this crisis, we're taking food from the hungry to give the starvin is absolutely a crisis mode. what do you think is going to happen when you take a nation that normally grows enough food to feed 400000000 people? and you sideline that. what do you think's going to happen? so look what you see in sri lanka, indonesia, peru, pakistan. i keep going on that is only a sign of things to come. and so over the next 10 to 12 months, we probably will have a significant, as we are having a pricing problem, is a perfect storm within a perfect storm. and if we don't get the port of a desk open, it's only going to compound our problems. the un says russia's war in ukraine has

7:13 am
that we should not forget all the rest. first of all, because ukraine has an impact on many other fragile situations, making it more for making them more fragile food security, energy crises, price increases in stability. and then this, in turn, can cause more displacement by the end of last june, the number of forcibly displaced people worldwide rose to word 90000000. it's the result of violence in ethiopia, or can a fossil myanmar nigeria, afghanistan, the democratic republic of the congo and other countries. as the number of refugees across the world increases relief agencies become less capable of handling the situation. the un humanitarian office, o. c, h, a warns nearly 18000000 people are going to face severe food shortages in the next 3 months across the african side region. the offices appealed for $3800000000.00

7:20 am
way to get justice for serene and other israeli crimes. now these really military prosecutor has said that it be his radio. we should be conducting an investigation urging one this. does it mean that an investigation would be open or that it has already been opened? this only means that the circles within the israeli army are talking about the potential of opening an investigation from our experience. it's been very rare that these really military opens investigations into killings of palestinians. and in their rare cases it does. it almost never leads to an indictment and when it does lead to an indictment, the light at the sentence is usually light and palestinians say it's this proportionate to the crime. that's why they're hoping to get justice from the international criminal court. a group of graduating students in the u. s. stage to protest in honor of shutting the box on saturday, they carried photos of her as they were awarded their degrees in georgetown

7:22 am
can actually confronted us at the end of commencement, it looks like the message was heard myself and my peers are calling for an independent investigation. not because we believe that there is any facts left to find. we know the israeli military murdered shooting, but per her family's request, they are requesting an independent investigation because this kind of thing going on the global record is important. it's a step to holding israel accountable. now when that accountability will happen, certainly not in today's current world and certainly not with the current bite and administration, but it's still important. and so my exact response in that moment to the secretary of state was we know the truth should he was murdered by these are in the military that we bank role. we need to stop funding these really military with american tax dollars. a sandstorm has blanketed parts of the middle east, more than a 1000 people in iraq have been hospitalized as a result and 14 schools were closed and several cities. this is the night found
