detective the u.s. president is in manila to attend the asean summit of asia pacific leaders which has just got underway a one on one with the filipino leader is also expected to take place. but we're now joined by a correspondent on the santos who's in manila it's good to see you so what can we expect from that meeting between trump and detective. well we're certainly expecting a lot of talk. president of terror to have earlier in his speech today said that he was looking forward to more inclusive girls and inclusive participation in the. region you know if you look at the last year and is actually on the end of the economic entity of this kind second but it hasn't really been able to come to harness economic growth as a coalition the way the e.u. has mostly because of so many different factors on our slowing down agreements in
the past expecting that we're hoping that there will be some talks on the west philippine sea we call it the west philippine sea here but there's been a little bit of confusion on that exactly first of all president trumpets mention i'd be happy to mediate the south china sea or west philippine sea issue for the philippines but we all know that for china u.s. meddling is a bit of a nonstarter so that has to be carefully balanced at the same time president again in his speech this afternoon said that he had a discussion with the chinese president and they both agreed to set that agreement or that the winning winning ruling of the philippines from the hague they agreed to set it aside because they wanted to avoid escalation of tensions in the region so there's a little bit of confusion we'll see over the next couple of days where that goes but i definitely think that the west philippine sea will be something that's on the
table over the next couple of days right obviously trump is in manila with other regional leaders for this summit what are they going to focus on. well there is also the need to focus on better cohesion within the region when it comes to counterterrorism that's also on the table. fallback for the hash using territory in the middle east the timing of that kind of coincided when i says affiliated fighters took over morocco here in the philippines so this has a lot of implications for the region it left us with questions like with actually losing territory in the middle east is the southeast asian region now going to be the next hot is hot spot secondly there were reported foreign fighters. among those fighting in morocco we so there's a need for country especially malaysia indonesia and the philippines to look into ways to better improve their contra terrorism measures and
a scientist joining us from manila thank you very much. donald trump's trip to asia has been overshadowed by the russia affair on saturday trump said he believed the russian president when he told a moscow has not meddled in the twenty sixteen presidential elections that prompted criticism at home a day later trump attempted to clarify the comments saying he backs a conclusion of u.s. intelligence agencies but he also avoided accusing put in i believe he believes that and it's very important for somebody to believe i believe that he feels that he and russia did not meddle in the election as to whether i believe it or not with our agencies especially as currently constituted with their leadership i believe in our intel agencies our intelligence agencies. and a brief look now at some of the other stories making news around the world reporters in iraq have found what they believe to be a mass grave used by so-called islamic state to dispose of their victims according

a tense day in catalonia spanish prime minister mariano rajoy visited the volatile region for the first time since dismissing this assertion is to government but roy didn't come to make nice meeting with members of his conservative party the spanish had called on catalyst to kick out separatists in next month's snap elections but he also urged business leaders not to turn their backs on the region the standoff shows no signs of abating on saturday hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of boston loner to call for the release of its jailed political leaders . following that story for us is spain correspondent michelle and hanna good to see attended a party meeting in barcelona ahead of elections in december what the main issues that he addressed. more than a meeting it was actually the kickoff to the korea lection compay in for his party to a pub pool are the conservative party he presented as the main candidate for the party
it was a stereotype party event in a sealed off environment inside rather than in a public space and raw wholly during his speech in his first appearance since this conflict started in barcelona in catalonia the region itself he has launched a vigorous attack on the independence leaders the pro independence movement itself he has called them criminals he has called them childish. actually i think in his speech he was very much on election mode already and he knows that the upcoming snap elections on the twenty first of december will be really difficult for his party and cut alone so very tough words from or a whole way but we've seen hundreds of thousands of people on the streets for weeks now in barcelona but testing against the spanish government control is surely when all the voters that. to me it looked like he didn't even try today
in his speech that didn't show any sign of reconciliation where he didn't try to bridge in between these two camps the pro independence. people as we have seen them again in high numbers out on the street yesterday so he didn't seem to try and win win over any catalan voters actually today he was rather addressing his voters in the rest of spain staging himself as the defender of the fatherland of the one who stands for law and order and who will restore as he put normality in catalonia and in doing so for the rest of the entire country so i believe his strategy is more directed towards the rest of spain rather than really looking at the regional elections all right nischelle briefly roy's handling of the situation has been heavily criticized but what do you make of it it's been criticised because of this harsh policy has line also because he has left it in the hands of the judges to
solve a political dispute a conflict that's haunting the region for decades you could say and now we have several politicians voted ripper sensitive off the people behind bars so this kind of handling has been criticised by many observers here in spain michel to hannah joining us from valencia thank you. the move is one of the world's most famous museums and now it has a system museum in abu dhabi and thousands of visitors attended the opening in a spectacular building designed by french architect john novella the building like the museum itself attempts to combine is stone and western influences it's the first museum of its kind in the arab region. thank you ing in the thirty degree heat and are now name from the somewhat cooler paris is already pulling a crowd in the arab world for the opening of the louvre abu dhabi the five thousand
tickets went quickly like the arts many visitors have come from europe the local seem to like it. we've been waiting for more than ten years so we're very proud to have an institution like this here the europeans took our artifacts and so the arabs are ok with taking the name at least and create also museums and bring part of the art back and also some european art so i think it's actually quite a good thing and. it's precisely what the rich immersive he wants the orient and the rest of the world comes together in arts grand historical qur'an additions to vinci's belfair on the air way where a sculpture farm scene of light. the shakes have left the structure of this rabia louvre true a frenchwoman star architect john nouvelle dame spans one hundred eighty meters i designed it invites interpretation. just looking at this new thinking about how they did this based on like the palm trees the print of the palm trees it's so
creative like you know it's connecting that culture and modernise them together so it's really nice to see that. arms they're celebrating this in their own way for star to stick expertise and name recognition come at a price the emirates has spent around one point five billion euros on the overall project including loan fees for the arts from the original in paris it gives a stronger exposure in terms of cultural associations with france and with europe i think it's fantastic that the louvre opened a new branch in the middle east it's for a limited time though the name louvre can only be used for thirty years in six months they want to the opening has been long and ostentatious now it's time to see whether this temple of high art can help bridge the arab and western worlds.
