9:55 pm
as i said earlier people are waiting for him around. to all claim he has waited for him to realize those tall planes which he has been making but in the previous. as a result of the previous elections imran khan partly ruled. from it one would expect there they. would present far as a role model as a mortal government a model of governance and all of the developments which he promised this in this election but according to his opponents he couldn't do that. there could be
9:56 pm
various reasons maybe it was not in round one himself and his good colleagues did not have that capacity but now when he has a clear large number of seats and he's likely to make a government at the islamabad and also incredible again one will when can hope that he would. meet those promises which he is he's making now he also indicated that he'd like to pursue closer ties with india with regard as and even to see dialogue with india with regard to the status of kashmir now this is something wasn't it. the military was not terribly happy with. the was a many observers suggested that the reason why the military decided to move against the nawaz regime because they want to talk happy with becoming more friendly with india can be wrong come to know why sharif. i
9:57 pm
think there is a difference between what is saying today we don't know what he'll do tomorrow and what not why should he have said and what he did. offer surely is that it was good relations with india it wants a peaceful resolution of kashmir dispute and other issues with india but of no value was an exception it was a different leader because what he was trying to do things which were like kind of not not not familiar with the pakistan porn policy context now why should he was as some say in from the military one of the few was trying to be independent he was taking initiatives he was building personal relationships with indian leadership he was trying to open trade ties with india he was trying to start trade with india and this was something that he was kind of going finding out of the box
9:58 pm
solutions and that created a rift are tension between nationally and the military establishment. in iran as everyone is saying in iran himself says that he would like to have good relations with the military and he would like to go together so if military and iran can are together they are on the same page then i don't see any problem. in stand towards india see it as but i said thank you very much to the interest live from islamabad. russian delegation is arrived in lebanon to talk about plans to repatriate syrian refugees the group is holding talks with the lebanese prime minister saad hariri the number of syrian refugees in the country is a sensitive political issue during the recent general election several political groups run on promises of sending the syrian refugees home while the syrian civil
9:59 pm
wars have millions of people out of their hands and hundreds of thousands of them sheltering in neighboring countries turkey for instance that holds the highest number of syrian refugees three and a half million that's according to the u.n. jordan has more than six hundred sixty thousand registered syrian refugees who are fleeing from the war just next door many of them are living in urban poverty and then there's lebanon with almost a million registered refugees and that's a quarter of lebanon's total population so one in four of the population of lebanon is a syrian refugee and these are the official figures now let's talk to our correspondent who's there in beirut first of all is interesting isn't it zain now that it's the russians who are coming in to lebanon to discuss the fate of these poor people who so refuge from the syrian refugee that is the russians you've got such a big hand in what happens to the next. well yes of course russia wielding
10:00 pm
a lot of power and influence in syria a russian a delegation is in beirut they held discussions with the prime minister designate south of there in the presidential palace for similar talks with that would love an aunt's president russia says it has a plan to facilitate the repatriation of hundreds of thousands of refugees lebanese officials will welcomed up in fact they have welcomed that they say we welcome any attempt to help these people go back home because the country can no longer. cope the country this has been a burden on lebanon on its resources on its population so lebanon welcome and welcoming this but really there is little information on what this roadmap is all about russian officials have talked about the creation of monitoring groups or centers but really little information and that is why it is causing a lot of concern among syrian refugees here we spoke to
10:01 pm
a number of them yesterday and all of them were telling us you know what's going to happen are they going to force this box or how can we go back our homes are destroyed really they named a list that a lot of obstacles on why the they are not able to go back home but most importantly they're asking what guarantees we do not trust the russians the russians are not an independent player in this conflict their guarantees are not enough for us when we want this for any refugee returns to be organized by the united nations but what we know from the united nations is that they just don't know anything about this russian plan right ok and as if any more illustration we needed of the instability still in syria cools we have the situation in a way to which is an area part of the country that up until now has been pretty peaceful but it's just we just realizing more and more as more details emerge just the kinds of conflict and the way it's being played out there. on the so many
10:02 pm
different fronts in the last couple of days. yes syria is far from safe the war is far from over yes i still has been kicked out of many territories many cities and towns that it controlled but they still control pockets of territory in syria and they were able to launch this this attack really that killed more than two hundred and fifty people in a province really which has been relatively safe and many would say that this is a message a statement from my soul that we are still here it was also some form of retaliation because. the syrian government and its allies have been targeting the eisel pocket maybe fighters trying to relieve their their you know their fighters by carrying out this attack but this is causing even more tensions with with some people in the opposition saying that you know the government turned a blind eye the government was not able to protect these people and and trying to really foment unrest between the population because sway that is
10:03 pm
a druze majority province this is a minority in syria the people are split there are some who believe that it's better to support the government because the government protects minorities and there are others who say no that is not true it is better to support the opposition and have freedom and democracy so there is a divide and sway to and what happened yesterday will definitely deepen the fissures among the population there all right zain thank you for that. live in beirut. well meanwhile pro-government forces have intensified their campaign to clear out of its last remaining pocket in southwestern syria the area is close to the border of the israeli occupied golan heights and israel's military says it struck a rocket launcher inside syria the two missiles fell into the sea of galilee so if need deca has those details. we've been witnessing the most intensive fighting that we've seen and we've been here for the last four or five days government forces

10:09 pm
a half trillion eighteen and a half trillion dollars and many have great expectations for the brics economies. perhaps rather optimistic lee predicting that they would rise exponentially even in the face of the two thousand and eight financial crisis but brazil russia and south africa's economies they stumbled partly due to the fall in commodity prices let's go live now to the bric summit in johannesburg is there for us and the five leaders has signed a final communique what is in essence is their message. well the summit has ended for the day and. pledged to work together to increase trade cooperation they insist that the north-south trade imbalance needs to be addressed this a particular protectionism is definitely not the way to go and that global trade should be encouraged amongst all countries that all countries benefit including the emerging economies and this is what the president of china had to say at the summit
10:10 pm
. what is constant is the flare up of geopolitical conflicts and the escalation of protectionism and you need. better rickly affect emerging markets and developing countries. shoes or more. we must work together with the united nations the g twenty and the world trade organization to safeguard the rules based multilateral trading systems liberalizing facilitate trade and investment and reject protectionism outright leaders say they're concerned about an all out global trade war one suggestion that was put on the table is that maybe they should be another summit meeting with all the dust from bricks and other bodies around the world to meet and to discuss the change issues they understand that the issues that some people feel very strongly about some countries want to protect their own individual interests but they insist they can be some common ground funk so they're suggesting at some point in time some summit is held with the u.s.
10:11 pm
president is also the and maybe they can be a balance between protecting one's individual interests and also doing something that's also good for the global community. thank you that's an interesting point at which the bric summit says andy thank you. now police in china say a suspected far work device exploded outside the u.s. embassy in beijing wounding only the twenty six year old male suspect the embassy described the device as a bomb. we heard a loud buying at the time so everyone ran towards the front of the embassy i didn't see anyone get arrested but we didn't know what was going on at the time so people just ran we taught it was firecrackers at first then we were told there was an explosion. correspondent in beijing. well as you can see the scene outside the u.s. embassy now very calm very relaxed the police have not been moving us on that is a sign that this security alert is over but earlier on in the day it had seemed to
10:12 pm
be that we were facing potentially a serious incident there was a large plume of smoke hanging over the u.s. embassy there had been reports of a loud explosion in fact we spoke to an embassy employee who told us they heard the explosion they said it was very loud indeed and that many staff in fact all staff were evacuated to a safe part of the embassy by u.s. marines now police issued a statement saying that a twenty six year old man from in among had detonated what they said was a suspicious firecracker type device his hands were injured he was taken to hospital and of course he will eventually be interviewed by the police to find out if anyone else was involved in this attack or whether he was just acting alone and indeed why he did what he did the embassy also issued a statement saying that it was a bomb that was detonated outside the embassy and that no damage was done to the
10:13 pm
embassy so the embassy language very different from the police language now random acts of violence in china not on common what is unusual though is for an incident like this to take place outside one of the most secure buildings in beijing. the last six members of a japanese cult that was responsible for a subway attack in the one nine hundred ninety s. have now been executed thirteen people were killed and nearly six thousand people were injured after the group released poisonous sarin gas intake is subway that was in march one thousand nine hundred five the group belong to the oem shinrikyo doomsday cult its founder was executed earlier this month. flood water from monday's dam collapse in laos is affecting thousands of villages in neighboring cambodia as well at least twenty six people were killed in laos one hundred thirty others missing rescue workers are trying to move many people to safety while aid workers and volunteers are distributing emergency supplies for our city reports now

10:17 pm
are now growing for those people who remain missing fire crews have been going from house to house searching the worn off to another there are still dozens of people in hospital some of them are in a critical condition when it comes to this area recovering well that road will be a very very long one. right it's time for the weather now his staff looking at europe and the hot weather is staying with us particularly in the west particularly at this hour temperature chart you can see the bright red colors are in the western parts of our map and that's where the highest temperatures are at the moment and it has caused this problem with wildfires with water shortages of as well and now in paris we're seeing a problem with pollution particularly with ozone which is formed from car exhaust emissions of factories and when these two combine in very strong sunlight then we get over an ozone in itself could also trigger asked attacks in other respects three problems so it's quite a nasty gas really and we're going to see more of it really over the next few days
10:18 pm
because things in the west and parts of europe are going to stay very hot if you look at a temperature chart there for thursday into friday there is a little change in fact you'd be forgiven for thinking things are going to get better because the temperature in london there went from thirty two to thirty one but that really doesn't tell the whole story so that's what's really going on we've got some clouds beginning to move in and this is our weather front that is going to bring us some slightly fresher air for a little bit at least and that is working its way into the western parts of the u.k. as we head through friday ahead of it though what we'll see it's a very hot winds feeding up from the south and as that heat builds during the day will give us some thunderstorms and if we get the heat before the thunderstorms then the temperature could be record breaking up to thirty seven in the u.k. but if the clouds come first then it won't be quite that marty. seth thank you very much indeed still to come on this al-jazeera news why saudi arabia is still playing on old transport through

10:22 pm
the substance of the plan could possibly be. we haven't seen the plan yet but we've seen some ideas from this plan and part of this plan you know includes or is trying to get thousands or tens of thousands of refugees back into syria to be partly in the places of origin where they come from but also others would go to. perhaps for transition until there is some kind of rebuilding of some of these stars these are the headlines really but all the other aspects are related to the protection of those refugees would ensure their safety who would actually. take them there and protect protect the dignity after use of the space but are not yet sure i
10:23 pm
mean and this is a key. but i wanted i wanted actually if obviously because this is such an enormous burden eleven and to have been sheltering i'm just wondering with the. eagerness if you like to share the load that perhaps people's protection and safety might drop down the priority list. i mean the idea here that most of the syrian refugees have the intention to go back to their country i mean they're living in misery and during displacement there wasn't a liberal or other countries seventy six percent of them are below the poverty line here in lebanon so they want to go back but really a small minority can go back at the moment fearing safety and security that this is what the this is what some of the studies have have been telling us that forty percent of them feel going back because they're not sure yet on the security and
10:24 pm
safety and things are still ongoing in terms of fighting and killing in syria that's one and the other you know point is related to whether young men who actually grew up now and displacement for the last seven eight years might be asked to join the army and offer conscription and the army and that's another key issue for young men and other men who are now out in the age of eighteen to forty and are living in the statement in addition of course to the level of the struction in syria i mean we're talking about about fifty three percent of schools in syria are either destroyed or in active so you talking about millions of children around one point seven five million children inside syria are outside schools so it's talking about one of the largest humanitarian disasters in the world at the moment so just talking about the return in a light way i think is a bit problematic what we need we need to quantify how this would lead to return
10:25 pm
what happened who would protect those refugees when they go back and obviously how we're going to link this return to rebuild a city and rebuilding piece you know you cannot just get people to return without addressing addressing the root causes of the conflict and putting back or trying to put some kind of a sustainable peace was solution for syrians absolutely thank you very interesting sites nothing. talking to us live from thank you. now kuwait is considering a halt in oil exports through the bob strait saudi arabia earlier announced that it was temporarily stopping shipments of all through this major trade route after attacks on two tankers whose the fight is a ripple to a slightly damaged one of them above our mendip straighted between yemen on the arabian peninsula and your beauty and eritrea on the horn of africa the saudi and
10:26 pm
m.r.c. coalition who are at war in yemen say they are trying to protect shipping routes in the gulf of aden and the red sea tankers carrying middle east oil and container ships from asia pass through the straits on their way to the serious canal and ports in europe so if oil can't go through an important channel like that even for a short while it could lead to a substantial supply delay and higher shipping costs and that could push up energy prices worldwide the alliance fronted by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. has been fighting in yemen for three years against the who is who were linked to iran during that time the u.s. has issued several warnings to commercial ships about using the route they've been attacks on u.s. turkish and saudi amorality coalition vessels but in the most recent incident the media hasn't mentioned an oil tanker instead there are two separate reports talking about an attack on a coalition warship of the western coast of yemen rodger shanahan is
10:27 pm
a research fellow at la institute for international policy and a former australian army officer he's got extensive experience in the middle east and he believes the saudis will resume shipments soon. on this transition the other. incidents very soon who is. lend to ship led by ship missiles have targeted military vessels and i think this is probably in order to calm the markets saudi authorities have decided to temporarily put a halt to oil oil tankers traveling through the belmondo but i think it will be a relatively short term proposition i don't think we're going to see a long term trend in a rise in oil prices because i don't think that who. might make out
10:28 pm
a long term campaign of this type if there are any other coalition vessels who are talented in this way you'll see a pretty swift response from those countries because freedom of navigation particularly net sensitive waterway is something that is really essential. to the maintenance of the economic lifelines and the coalition will take. take significant steps to ensure that that occurs and you may well see as well additional force protection from the maritime assets in the short term to ensure that there is freedom of navigation for. those economically vital supply lines. meanwhile the u.n. special envoy for yemen has arrived in the capital sana'a for another round of talks is also shared to meet who think rebel leaders before arriving there the u.n. envoy met yemen's prime minister in the saudi capital riyadh. the u.s.

10:36 pm
a week in some amounts most of the cash goes the national fishing conglomerate which is expanding its operations into remote communities and one of the reasons why the fishermen do so well is because winters are getting shorter and the summer season is expanding open water for quite a much stronger time and we can ship our. goats to denmark to export them a little longer than we usually but that expanding season and less ice means a traditional form of transport is not as necessary as it once was all along greenland's coastal towns and settlements there are sled dogs everywhere that part of innuit culture there in the blood but this relationship is under pressure here in the tourist center of ilulissat dogs have always outnumbered the human population which stands at round about four and a half thousand but now it's the other way round there are only sixteen hundred dogs left and they're still declining. fisherman call peterson used to sledge out

holds talks with russia on sending home the more than one million syrian refugees who sought shelter from the seventy a wall. the collapse of a dam in laos forces thousands from their homes in neighboring cambodia. a chinese president xi jinping calls for a joint effort to fight trade protectionism at the brics meeting. now the cricketer turned politician imran khan is promising a corruption free pakistan as his party takes the lead with half the votes counted in pakistan's general election. just a short while ago and he promised to usher in a new era for the country he says he'll try to alleviate poverty corruption and with india over kashmir. or. i want to thank
10:50 pm
god the today we were successful and we got the mandate i now want to outline my vision for pakistan we're going to uplift the poor people we're going to uplift the labor and laborers who are weak who are dying of hunger our population is either extremely rich or extremely poor if god wills we will fulfill all our promises. but all of his opponents including the ruling pm l.-n. have alleged widespread irregularities and they're rejecting the results they've accused pakistan's armed forces of meddling in favor of imran khan but army commanders say these allegations are mere malicious propaganda when go live now to a summer binge of eighty is our correspondent in the hot lahore the capital of the political heartland of pakistan the punjab and so how is it looking now because we are almost twenty four hours since the polls of clothes we still haven't gotten official results. well counting is still underway in many parts
10:51 pm
where the results have not been compiled yet we've heard from the election commission of pakistan saying that most of the results of coming in but there have been delays at various polling stations because of human error as well as the overloading of the system that the election commission had tried to use this time around but there has been a lot of criticism from all the spectrum of political the whole spectrum of political parties see that this is a flawed system of vote count they rejected the election commission has stolen the mandate from them and they're right now meeting to figure out a future course of action to try and salvage the results of this election because according to the box. they see that it was a three pronged rigging process at first people who were part of their party were broken off by coersion then there was the delay and the actual voting process was
10:52 pm
still down and then they see that the results were compiled behind closed doors and the appalling agents were not allowed inside right now we have just spoken to some leaders who say that the concentration within the party as well as trying to negotiate with other political parties to try and find out what will be the best course of action going forward because of course a damage to any kind of tarnished election result doesn't bode well does it for the unity of the country so there's there's quite a challenge to overcome for the authorities in pakistan. absolutely and you you saw that in the speech as well he knows the threat that he could face in trying to form this government because it is going to be a numbers game right now according to these partial results. in the lead but if you combine everyone else together they could have the numbers. so imran khan has come
10:53 pm
out and said that he is not just charting out to strategy going forward in dealing with other countries but also within the country as well see that he is open to dialogue he's going to reopen any constituency where the opposition or the losing party feels that there has been any regularity and he says that there will be no political victimization something which he was quite opposed to according to him during the the government of the parties on the family in the last five years and we've also heard some sort of real threats from various leaders in the political parties think that if the election commission of parts i mean the interim government of pakistan which is in charge until a new government takes over does not take he does not take notice of their complaint against the voting process their supporters might take matters into their own hands ok a sign of age of aid reporting live from the hall thank you very much indeed well now let's turn to our who's a columnist and an author and she's joining us now via skype from lahore as well
10:54 pm
thank you very much indeed for joining us and what are you making and what's your assessment of the current situation facing the country. man i'm just wondering can you hear me here secondly great i'm just wondering what your assessment is of the current situation facing the country given that you've got unofficial reso partial results i should say and you've got to imran khan already pretty much claiming victory but you've got the main opposition party is rejecting that out right in saying that there was widespread rigging. if you think we're going with the elections in buckets than what the opposition or what the other parties are saying too little opposition would be incorrect at the moment with what the other parties are saying is that it is the action of all the parties that we are not about very good but never going the election and deliver
10:55 pm
the results are announced reaction as i was being similar this is nothing new for us on the inside that you are going to. this is now on the political parties were defeated in the next and we act so you know it's not much to. use that you see if you can you find pretty sanguine so nothing much to be alarmed about next thing then what do you think about the vision of the new era for pakistan that. exposes his media briefing. it's not my opinion. they're really looking at legal action i've been watching but this time only shows the. there is a single in soon and well you know. that connection. of course they started to see right after the first results were announced but what happened
10:56 pm
was that. one part was happening to them. it was just you know it was just i mean a lot like martin ok mismanaged and so on and so forth nothing nothing has been there that movie deals get a little. more. engaging so you sound. sorry to sorry to interrupt but you sound confident then that this will be resolved and that a coalition government led by imran khan and his p.t.i. party will take the helm. pakistan will then start his his process of administration central to which will be battling against corruption.

a russian delegation is arrived in lebanon to talk about plans to repatriate syrian refugees the group is holding talks with the lebanese prime minister saad hariri the number of syrian refugees in the country is a sensitive political listing during the last election in may several political groups ran on promises to send syrians. but meanwhile the syrian civil war has driven millions of people out of their homes hundreds of thousands of them a sheltering in different countries turkey has the highest number of syrian refugees three and a half million according to the u.n. . another six hundred sixty thousand registered refugees who fled the war next door many of families. and then there's lebanon where there are almost a million registered syrian refugees and that's
10:59 pm
a quarter of the entire lebanese population but the government says the actual number could be a lot higher then the hunter is our correspondent in bay region she's been following that meeting. russia says it has a plan to facilitate the repatriation of refugees it sent a delegation headed by putin's special envoy on syria to lebanon to discuss with lebanese officials the way forward there is little information on what this plan and visitors and some russian officials have been talking about setting up centers close to the borders and that the russians will provide guarantees to refugees once they return but clearly many refugees are concerned because what they want to see is the is the united nations involved in organizing these returns because they are demanding security guarantees for them russia is a party to the conflict russia is an ally of the syrian government and you know guarantees from from the russian side it's just not enough refugees will tell you
11:00 pm
we're concerned some of us don't have homes to return to there are no jobs back home when we when we get back we were forced to join the army we're also worried about punishment for dodging. military service so people are concerned that this russian plan really does not ensure. their own security and safety. while pro-government forces have intensified their campaign to clear isolate last remaining pockets of territory in the south west and syria the area is close to the border of the israeli occupied golan heights and israel's military said it had struck a rocket launcher inside syria after two missiles fell into the sea of galilee seventy deca has the details. we've been witnessing the most intensive fighting that we've seen and we've been here for the last four or five days government forces backed by russia on this last pocket of opposition held territory which is
11:01 pm
controlled by a group affiliated with ice and what has been significant today is that we've actually seen and you can probably see behind me outgoing rocket fire now we've seen syrian government forces for the first time on the ground through the lens of our camera moving in vehicles and launching a ground attack against the eisel affiliated group so basically it is an intensive campaign they want to take this back it's the last pocket in southwest syria there's also been spillover across the fence because as you can see the fighting is so close and in the distance you can now see airstrikes it has been such an intensive campaign and the government with its russian ally very keen to take it back. still to come here at al-jazeera as a search for the missing in greece continues some are asking if the wild fires were actually started on purpose. i mean clock reporting from the euro zone to agreement one sled dogs

safeguard the rules based multilateral trading system liberalise and facilitate trade and investment and reject protectionism outright police in china say a suspected firework device that's what they're calling it has exploded outside the u.s. embassy in beijing when data only the twenty six year old male suspect but the u.s. embassy described the device as a bomb. tools they use on bomb we heard a loud bang at the time so everyone ran towards the front of the embassy i didn't see anyone get arrested but we didn't know what was going on at the time so people just around we thought it was firecrackers at first then we were told there was an explosion more now from adrian brown. well as you can see the scene outside the u.s. embassy now very calm very relaxed the police have not been moving us on that is a sign that this security alert is over but earlier on in the day it had seemed to be that we were facing potentially a serious incident there was
11:10 pm
a large plume of smoke hanging over the u.s. embassy there had been reports of a loud explosion in fact we spoke to an embassy employee who told us they heard the explosion they said it was very loud indeed and that many staff in fact all staff were evacuated to a safe part of the embassy by u.s. marines now police issued a statement saying that a twenty six year old man from in among had detonated what they said was a suspicious firecracker type device his hands were injured he was taken to hospital and of course he will eventually be interviewed by the police to find out if anyone else was involved in this attack or whether he was just acting alone and indeed why he did what he did the embassy also issued a statement saying that it was a bomb that was detonated outside the embassy and that no damage was done to the embassy so the embassy language very different from the police language now random

to export them a little longer than we usually but that expanding season and less ice means a traditional form of transport is not as necessary as it once was all along greenland's coastal towns and settlements there are a sled dogs everywhere that part of innuit culture there in the blood but this relationship is under pressure here in the tourist center of lunacy dogs have always outnumbered the human population which stands at round about four and a half thousand but now it's the other way round there are only sixteen hundred dogs left and they're still declining. fishable called peterson used to sledge out on to the ice in winter to fish ice conditions and now it's a variable that is not possible anymore she. used to keep dogs outside my house but i still do using them five years ago i can now use my boat old year round. they're all days bucking the trend saddened by the gradual demise of the mode of
11:18 pm
transport that goes back thousands of them with us and is determined to keep the tradition. if for our culture my family still has dogs because we want our children to experience what we and our ancestors experienced in the winter we sledge to the ice fjords to fish and hunt seals. change is all around in greenland from how to deal with the detritus of the modern world the remote settlements to more fundamental issues of alcoholism and high suicide rates there's an upside to of course better education and standards of living and better opportunities but who can say how the latest generation will play out their lives in the years to come nick clarke al-jazeera green. these are the top stories are about as they are cricketer temple edition imran khan is promising

for the first time since robert mugabe was hoarse from polyp by the army the people of zimbabwe will see the next president what a struggling economy and frustration amongst many young voters means the result on the thirtieth of july is still hard to predict follow that the bombing in addition on al jazeera. after the ok i enjoy the street and i'm really could be allowed today france close call as a race in the wake of a world cup when some are asking what does it mean to be french and we are diving into a topic pitch by a member of our community and my case listen during the world cup a lot of people joke that they would support the black an african team and by the time the final rolled around that black african team somehow more entrenched and i saw a line conversation tweets going viral this conversation around citizenship and
11:22 pm
race and religion in france and i wanted to hear from actual french people especially minorities black and muslim and others about what it feels like what it means to be french and to observe this global conversation about the impact of the team on contemporary french citizenship south african comedian travel no adding fuel to the debate on nationality with a joke about france's wealth cup when referring to the large number of players of african descent. so what happened was let's start at the beginning of france won the world cup. and so on the show we celebrated that and i had this joke where. i said africa won the world. while his joke has drawn fierce criticism no continues to stand by his remarks
11:23 pm
meanwhile the conversation on what it means to be french rolls on and here to discuss that from france require diallo she's a writer journalist and t.v. host a b e t france in paris pierre haski is a better and journalist and commentator. our dean he's the deputy city counselor for the paris suburbs and sent to me and in new york louis sarkozy he's a french philosophy and religion student at new york university he's also the son of the former french president nicolas sarkozy and every place good to have you here and for those of you watching live on you tube you can leave your comments in the chat box and we will try and get them into this show so french guests yes it's lovely to have you. for disclosure i am of african descent i know that may have been a surprise to some of you i didn't realize as i was following the means and the jokes about the french team that within france there was some friction some tension about
11:24 pm
these jokes let me show you that moment when i realized and this is from one of our producers senior producer of al-jazeera he's based in france and he says via twitter it is time to stop this front on african team nonsense if you don't understand why that's hope for them best to just sit let france enjoy this moment the idea of being a full p.f. can you explain why some people would find what seemed to be a little bit of teasing a little bit of a joke why that would be so painful for french people.
11:25 pm
11:26 pm
i agree completely i agree with what you say he says not to say i can time when he responded well no matter. what i could have.
11:27 pm
11:28 pm
11:29 pm
11:30 pm
11:31 pm
11:32 pm
no because there's a difference between visible minorities and non visible already and we all know you are real knowing that so have i only just came here i want to jump in here because i think the point you were making machines and p.r. here the point you're making here you mentioned earlier that there are two different issues here you know the racism that minority groups often face and this
11:33 pm
issue of being called something other than french our community though is linking those two things so this is a common we got live on you tube this person says racism is alive in france make no mistake people are being denied jobs and rents because of their ethnicity and minorities are profiled by police too so that's one aspect of this we also got a video comment from someone who says this is what it takes to be considered a friend this is our the francois koran and he's actually in kazakhstan but this is what he has to say have a listen so historically in france the dominant conception of politicians as always been civic conceptions meaning that the attachment to the french nation is solely based on people's willingness and desire to voluntarily join the french family so being part of the national team in france is similar to being part of the armed forces notwithstanding your origins or religion people will accept us part of the
11:34 pm
community because of your willingness to sacrifice everything for friends so ok i know you are trying to get in there he says it's all about the willingness to sacrifice everything that is a high bar but what do you make of this comet i think that. communication.
11:35 pm
11:36 pm
11:37 pm
11:38 pm
no i don't think that the response doesn't mean he made was to say that he was on the french. but i think he wanted to say i'm french i'm french playing in the french national team and i also proud of my origins and i think that the problem is from more and more people questioning your identity many people ask me where i am from me if i believe in god or not if i'm not. so it's very difficult in france. forty years. after what. many people want. a singular a unique franchise they want us to cut two to two cups with our roots they want us to forget where we come from and i have
11:39 pm
a message for them we want. i
11:40 pm

11:44 pm
11:45 pm
have
11:46 pm
a check on my laptop paper that i so want to have of what you see the next time. every. creates fear and division amongst its citizens where stories of loss go on tone. a sweeping association of islam with the violence easier in muslims facing the stock reality of being ostracized by the very communities in which they live love and moon the tragic loss of life twice a victim coming soon on al-jazeera a new perspective can change the world. for one chin is in what began as a hobby has grown into
11:47 pm
a passion own way of life. teaching the next generation to strive for a higher level. and in so installing in his country a sense of freedom and strength. new heights my chin is here on al-jazeera. history is so often told through the eyes of leaders but in amritsar india just thirty kilometers from the border with pakistan this old building is being transformed into a new museum mallika ahluwalia is the driving force behind sars partition museum it's really shocking because if you think about the fact that within a few years of nine eleven happening nine eleven museum was there and they are now numerous called museums is not beautiful a museum so countries around the world have walked to memorialize these events that have shaped them by titian is not about the political events that led up to buy
11:48 pm

11:52 pm
has emerged with hashtags like welcome king can mentioning people of baluchistan at the start of his speech talking about women empowerment promise lower class and confronting all the rigging blaine's we needed to hear all that my prime minister this one tweet says and another one here i swear i can't hold my tears back what a leader just look at him speak let's bring in our osama bin job at whose life for us in the whore pakistan osama imran khan and his supporters came in victory but we still don't have final official figures when do we expect those. well fully as you mentioned those teary eyed supporters of being on both sides of the political divide we saw the bucks on muslim league supporters last night very disappointed in the outcome but then there was jubilation throughout the night we were up till about five in the morning and we could see crowds of people gathering on the roadside dancing to the beats saying that this is the dawn of
11:53 pm
a new pakistan a new bargain standard their leader imran khan has promised and in a statesman like speech delivered a few hours ago mentioned all of the things that his critics had been talking about trying to address everything not just internally inside pakistan but giving a picture of the pakistan that he envisions if it does indeed take power or what the relations with india are going to be like how is it going to pan out with a gun to stand what are the relations being to be with the u.s. and then of course reforms agenda everything from the schooling system and education to health and the provision of jobs has all been addressed in this very short speech but when coming back to the results it is again we are discussing as if i'm wrong on a stick and charged right we're still about. thirty three quarters into the results of these final action then we see heard the election commission of pakistan come out an hour ago speaking about these results saying that yes there has been
11:54 pm
a delay yes our system could crash but completely rubbishing that there has been any rigging in the political process they say that if any political party has issues with polling stations they should come to the election commission and discuss the specifics right because the parties the opposition parties and even the ruling party the pm and then not accepting this result so far if they continue to reject the results. what happens next where would that leave pakistan. for people and is now in the former ruling party because it is a caretaker government.

lebanese officials the way forward there is little information on what this plan and visitors and some russian officials have been talking about setting up centers close to the borders and that the russians will provide guarantees to refugees once they return but clearly many refugees are concerned because what they want to see is the is the united nations involved in organizing these returns because they are demanding security guarantees for them russia is a party to the conflict russia is an ally of the syrian government and you know guarantees from from the russian side it's just not enough refugees will tell you we're concerned some of us don't have homes to return to there are no jobs back home when we when we get back we were forced to join the army we're also worried about punishment for dodging military service so people are concerned that this russian plan really does not ensure. their own security and safety

time now for a look at the day's other news here is in the new center hi maria. hi that
12:08 am
hi there folly will actually begin with a story from the region quite saying that it's considering the holton oil exports really baba munda strait saudi arabia earlier announced it is temporarily stopping shipments of oil on the major trade route after attacks on two tankas who the fight is are reported to have damaged one of them the closure could lead to substantial supply delays and high a shipping cost bushing up and edgy prices worldwide potentially well above a month of straight is located between yemen on the arabian peninsula and djibouti in eritrea in the horn of africa a saudi an emirate he coalition at war in yemen says it's trying to protect shipping routes in the gulf of aden and red sea which used to bring middle eastern oil and goods from asia through the suez canal to europe or rodger shanahan is research fellow lowy institute for international policy and a former australian army officer with extensive experience in the middle east he
12:09 am
says the saudis are likely to resume shipments soon. and oil tankers on the station the other. incidents produce in the cities use. lend to ship lead by ship missiles have targeted military vessels and i think this is probably. the market's sariel authorities have decided to temporarily put a halt to oil oil tankers traveling through belmondo but i think it will be a relatively short term proposition i don't think we're going to see a long term trend in royson or prices because i don't think that they. might miss out a long term campaign of this type if there are any other coalition vessels who are targeted in this way you'll see a pretty swift response from those countries because freedom of navigation particularly net sensitive waterway is something that is really essential. to the
12:10 am
maintenance of the economic lifeline zone the coalition will take. take significant steps to ensure the debt occurs and you remain well see as well additional force protection from. maritime assets in the short term to ensure that there is freedom of navigation to. those economically vital supply lines. amana death ate an explosive device outside the u.s. embassy in beijing injuring only himself the embassy described the weapon as a bomb but police say it was a firework device the twenty six year old suspect from china is in a mongolian region injured his hand and was taken to hospital at least eighty three people have died in greece out the wildfires devastated beach resorts there athens some people still searching for missing family members and blame the authorities for not responding sooner to the blazes need farquhar ports from mattie. well the

can you hear me. we seem to have lost our connection there to hussein. in yemen's capital sanaa. we will try to reestablish it but again we're covering this breaking news story out of the
12:15 am
united arab emirates abu dhabi the capital of the u.a.e. well hoofy rebels say they have launched a drone they have in effect attacked the airport there but the airport confirming that there has been an incident but saying fact the operations at the airport have not been affected. ports saying that there was an incident involving a supply vehicle in terminal one side area of the airport approximately four pm today and the hoofy saying that they were behind that incident and saying that they attacked airport with a drone let's try and see if we can get hussein on the line once again. can you hear me. a great thank you so much for being with us what can you tell us about this reported incident in abu dhabi what is with the media saying right now.
12:16 am
12:17 am
12:18 am
12:19 am
12:20 am
12:21 am
12:22 am
of course it's iran iran behind everything so iran considered this as a defense of the parents for any coming sanction or uncovered coming.
12:23 am
military operation again so this is so i think the hooty of using but i think i really it's highly unlikely that any medical attention in iran and yes we can go into my acts question in fact one of the implications of such actions again today an attack on the abu dhabi airport twenty four hours ago or oil tankers in saudi arabia targeted. you know when you look at these different actions and the messages that the who the seem to be sending that they can target abu dhabi they can target. riyadh and so on what implications for the war in yemen are we going to see the conflict get worse. i think the conflict is because. it's very difficult yemen. i mean the military
12:24 am
option will take us nowhere on it is it should be a political process we should have a sort of inclusive government the new structure for the state of yemen and yemeni it's very hard to control would be for all the tribes with different wrong and months of the conflict in yemen so you need people most yemen very well. and sometimes i think that can give it would have difficulty to get any political solution for yemen so you need also to have sort of third party influence to talk with the yemeni especially hootie and iran also if you want to solve this problem because iran is a big player and you know in our part of the world and it's a big. it's has the influence and the leverage on the red sea and then homo's now that we have to talk i mean people we have to talk. with iran and tell what's
12:25 am
what's all about the story i have a great mystery now are from one of our viewers on facebook mohammed who you know wonders as many people are i guess whether we're going to see a proxy religious war between saudi arabia and iran it is an extension they vary between you and the. but if the saudis see that iran's influence be creased thing in yemen. then they might have touched of course the americans should grow it and you know i wouldn't be surprised if the american and iranian broken like the north korean pope have in the future and in the bush regime in the future because i think that matters so i think the people there the whole world wouldn't like to see any kind of it can grip or run her moods. across again coming back to the military situation in yemen right now you know what
12:26 am
when you look at this action today and the one twenty four hours ago by the whole fees you know we surely likely to see some sort of retaliation from the saudi iraqi led coalition militarily speaking i mean they've been launching air strikes right now in yemen a lot of them. how would they escalate if you will their response in the face of such actions by the whole thesis.
12:27 am
12:28 am
on the red sea last year as it approached a yemen port and last week the who the said they launched a drone attack on the saudi owned a ram coal oil refinery in saudi arabia's capital riyadh the company denies this claim let's speak to andreas craig now an assistant professor at the defense studies department at king's college london he's on the line from london thank you very much speaking to us andreas your reaction first to this latest news these actions by the who these now they have launched an attack
12:29 am
a drone attack on the airport in abu dhabi. yeah i mean this is quite surprising it's not shocking news this is a if true i mean so far if you look at the different reports that came out i haven't seen any images yet but you need to imagine that they must have flown then one thousand three hundred fifty kilometers from sanaa or or from somewhere else in northern yemen all the way to up to the end strike an airport in a country which is highly militarized in the country you are you have very good at defense systems and they have very good radio systems i mean it would be a true story if it turns out to be true it would be very shocking considering that the u.a.e. have such good defensive capabilities i mean it's very hard for me at this point very hard to imagine that this is actually possible right well the abu dhabi airport have said in a tweet that they has been an incident at the airport involving a supply vehicle in terminal one area of the airport approximately four pm today
12:30 am
and they say that this incident has not affected operations at the airport in frys continue to arrive and depart as scheduled as you say unclear whether these two incidents ah connected but it would be quite significant indeed if this was the case that they launched this drone attack. the question i guess is you know that they seem to have more and more sophisticated weapons technology to target not just saudi arabia as we saw twenty four hours ago but also the united arab emirates in this latest incident if it's confirmed how and where are they able to get this weaponry.
12:31 am
12:32 am
12:33 am
12:34 am
i mean it is it is further and further escalation and we have to also say again the whole data operation that start a couple months ago is somewhat broke down they haven't really made any progress recently that the stalemate militarily this is a stalemate the fact that the who these are not just a bunch of wild mujahideen running around in the mountains of northern yemen but
12:35 am
they are a quasi state actor with increasingly capable weaponry means that you know this is somewhat a conflict on par with both sides can't really overcome each other on the best of fields which will be the only solution and this has been merely a solution since two thousand fifteen the only solution to this conflict is a political one where everybody sits down and i think the iranians play a very important role in tipping the point and making sure that there will be a political solution to this conflict where the m.b. is a part of the solution and you know if you look at the statements made by the money the head of the courts was from iran over the last. actually today i think it was in the morning he was saying you know the united states will no longer be actually safe in the red sea which kind of suggests that he meant you know u.s. troops and u.s. facilities can attack in the red sea went from from yemen to her i think it's a very much using this as a song i wonder if i want to ask you about iran's role you mentioned iraq and
12:36 am
saying how crucial iran was to a resolution of this conflict and i have quite a few questions here from all of us about the rons role iran's involvement in yemen's war one here from the year on facebook who asks what evidence is there regarding even u.n. involvement in the strikes in yemen and also is there anyone that's giving evidence right now of the iranian involvement in yemen.
12:37 am
12:38 am
press suggests that the some of the drones and some of the ballistic missiles that have been used and have to confiscate it in or shot down have traces that have persion on it and seem to seem to be seem to be seem to be traceable to to iran itself just you know looking at the bigger picture now of the war in yemen this conflict has killed hundreds of thousands of people you know civilians affected there has been talk of course of a political solution
12:39 am
a political resolution looking at where things stand today and these various incidents is that a possibility in the near future a political solution to this conflict. i think a lot has to do with ego and pride of the moment i mean the saudis particularly the saudi crown prince well bin time on this was was part of their instrumental in setting this war into motion and he has a lot to lose from basically withdrawing from the battlefield without a clear a military victory though it could be that for this is in particular this looks like it would look like a military defeat if they go and return to the negotiation table. for him it's important to sell it as a as a victory if now the u.a.d. who are less invested emotionally in this more if if if it turns out that they have been attacked now by a drone from the who these i do think that the u.a. e. will also have and raise their stakes militarily and say actually we're no longer in here just to help out our brothers in saudi arabia but we actually have to
12:40 am
defend our national security and i think this could lead to a least a temporary escalation of the war and undermine some of the peace efforts that are underway with oman trying to mediate between the two parties so i think at this point yes but the political solution is should be the wiser one i mean everybody looks at the conflict and see that the capability of the rubies is actually increasing should say let's go and let's go and find a political solution but i think the ego and pride that is invested into this conflict particularly on the side of the saudis will probably obstruct at the moment to make the right and wise decision to go and return to the negotiation table thank you very much andreas craig for your insight andreas craig is from king's college london he was on the line there from the u.k.'s capital thank you very much for shedding light on the situation in yemen for us we continue to follow this breaking news story here on al-jazeera bringing i came on the smart who is the

12:42 am

12:59 am
appear to have an edge over his rivals asama vinge of aid is live for us now in lahore so imran khan does have actually a dominant lead so far in this election but does it is it going to be enough for him to have an overall majority or could he still be seeking coalition on as. well that is the biggest question right now because so far according to these partial results in round three kids of is leading in the polls and he does seem to have a decisive majority in comparison to others but that is still short of the number of seats required in the two hundred seventy two member parliament to try and form a simple majority he is likely to need coalition partners and those partners are going to be difficult because besides his party the box on the kids of every other party including the top two the second and the third the box on the family god in the box on people's body have raised concerns about the outcome of these elections about the way the votes were counted the bugs on. insisting that it was
1:00 am
a rigged process of counting the votes they had met with their representatives were not allowed inside and instead of giving them proper documentation which was the responsibility of the election commission staff they were not given they were only given clean pieces of paper with stamps on it and that is something that the bottom of the big push to declare that this is. it was a fraudulent and rigged result and they've lost the election commission of pakistan as well as the caretaker government which is in charge of the country to look into these allegations as you heard in his first speech saying that he's open to all of this criticism he's saying that he will open any constituency where there is been allegations of vote rigging in the election commission has said that these opposition parties must bring their requests about vote rigging an allegation and prove that they have so that about the specific area so that an investigation can be opened and figured out what happened and why was it wrong. and until that takes
1:01 am
place presumably it is going to take some time if these allegations are going to be pursued or even investigated what happens in the meantime could those that are crying foul prevent or delay the formation of a new government. when it depends on the numbers actually it is going to be a numbers game in punjab the heartland of politics in pakistan and funnily enough the concentration of the pakistan. is that it should not allow in one kind it is god the numerical advantage in the province of punjab and it wants to make its government but the pakistan rather than concentrating on the national assembly and forming the national government there is a lot of activity that is happening in the province to try and get this government because if you are ruling punjab you have a significant sway over how things are run in the in the in the capital so it is
1:02 am
going to be in the next twenty four hours the election commission is going to go ahead and the results it says that it is optimistic because eighty percent of results come in and the rest will be announced within within the next twenty four hours but the question remains on who is going to align himself with because you have to remember that all of these political parties which are going to join or oppose imran khan in the federal capital will have to either oppose him or join him in various provinces as well so that now the difficult stage begins where the formation of these parties with the formation of government blocs is going to happen but there's nothing that these parties can do which will stop the election commission of pakistan to announce the results all right thank you very much with all the latest from some of inch of eight. well we are our coverage continues right here on our web site you can see live official results coming in as that vote continues about half the results have been counted in this election we don't have

1:09 am
criminal system right now or who may have a communicable disease or may have been deported out of the country without their children a judge said that was very very disturbing and it seems that at this point the government is still coming up with a plan of what to do with these kids who were forcibly abandoned by their paris. that the u.s. may have deported very. aware all these children in the meantime what sort of conditions of a is. right so right now the government is quickly trying its best to do what it can by the midnight deadline today and they've been bringing children in from across the country on airplanes and on buses to the border area where many of the parents have been staying in these detention centers locked up so those reunions are happening as we speak as far as the children who are ineligible to be reunited they remain in government
1:10 am
care that may be in the form of shelters run by private contractors were kids are reporting that they're receiving food and places to sleep there with their peers they say it's fine and for the general part well taken care of but they're missing their parents then there are also children who have been delivered to foster families across the united states and while the judge has commended the government on trying to take care of meet the basic needs of these children amplified for their safety the major concern here for a psychologist and child welfare act as advocates is that there is still psychological trauma being inflicted on these children some of which are under the age of five and it is still to be determined how grave that damage is and how these children may begin their healing mariyam. all right thank you very much heidi joe castro finale there in county texas. united states says it will impose significant

harbor a fisherman is unloading his catch of halibut it's been a good day fisherman can earn huge sums here maybe eight thousand dollars a week in summer months most of the catch goes to the national fishing conglomerate which is expanding its operations into remote communities and one of the reasons why the fishermen do so well is because winters are getting shorter and the summer season is expanding open water for quite a much longer time and we can ship our. goods to denmark to export them a little longer than we usually. but that expanding season and less ice means a traditional form of transport is not as necessary as it once was all along greenland's coastal towns and settlements there are a sled dogs everywhere that part of innuit culture there in the blood but this relationship is under pressure here in the tourist center of lunacy dogs have

cutting off the supply of middle east oil saudi arabia temporarily suspend shipments through straight up to two of its tankless are attacked by the rebels off the coast of yemen without further fuel regional tensions and to high oil prices this is inside story. welcome to the program i'm peter dubey petrol prices could soon be on the way up
2:22 am
because of the war in yemen and sanctions being reimposed on iran saudi arabia has ordered its oil tankers to stop states sailing through the bible mendip straight off the coast of yemen after two of those were attacked if ships on their way to the suez canal and beyond can't use this vital seaway rerouting all the way around south africa will out weeks to delivery times and push up the cost of oil and all the products the rebels have been fighting in yemen for the past three years they're backed by iran and face a coalition of countries led by major oil producers saudi arabia and the united arab emirates they also use the straits of hormuz to export their oil worldwide but the gateway to the gulf is also a hostage to tensions between washington and tehran iran's leaders have one they'll shut the strait if the u.s. hopes iranian oil exports doldrums reimposing sanctions after pulling out of the nuclear deal. and again you don't name is it good actually enough. the americans
2:23 am
say they would not allow iran to export even one drop of oil do you think iran is that weak what are you thinking definitely and certainly you cannot do such a thing but we will stand up to you we are men of resistance the entire iranian nation will resist these major general kassam silly money from iran's revolutionary guard said this on thursday quotes the red sea which was secure is no longer secure with the american presence trump should know that we are a nation of martyrdom and that we await him ok let's introduce our guests today joining us from london is dr mundo selami an international oil economist from washington d.c. we have al gore saying she's the c.e.o. of alcoa saying global strategy is a political and business firm both with projects in the u.s. and the middle east and we also have mustapha question a political commentator joining us live from tehran welcome to all of you men to sell them in london first quarter the who the rebels trying to achieve here they
2:24 am
are trying to impact on saudi oil. exports and also to assure that they have the upper hand in yemen. the war in yemen has to be costly for saudi arabia and the united arab emirates and the whole if is not of trying to assure the united the saudi arabia and u.a.e. that continuing the order will not give them and the benefit in the future and it's better to come to the negotiate the bill so they are using their at facts on the this of their areas of saudi arabia and u.a.e. and it is to put pressure on the saudi government. in washington potentially what could this do to the oil price. i think
2:25 am
definitely we should expect the oil prices continue to increase we've seen under the trump administration over a fourth of july weekend that oil prices got the prices at the pump for american citizens were the highest they have been in for years and for whatever reason the trump administration allows mohamed bin salon and saudi arabia to act very aggressively in the region completely and try and shacked or in fact with u.s. support as we know the who are backed by iran and saudi arabia has blocked this important strait which raises the question of whether or not iran will then block the strait of hormuz in a retaliatory effort the strait of hormuz is extremely significant because over twenty percent of the world's entire oil flows through that and it is the opening from the persian gulf out into the sea mustafa question from into iran securely the who sees. deliberately trying to hit the so these where it hurts the
2:26 am
a run code. well thank you very much for having me on the show then. you know the point is that there are been some misunderstandings in here because and so a lot of yemen they have been reiterating since last night that they have targeted washin and not crude wessels and while in saudi officials including their energy minister they are insisting that their crude missiles have been targeted and i have not personally seen any proof or evidence to decide who is telling the truth but a nation that has been on their attack by way of the saudis and a number of other nations for the last several years and seventeen thousand people have been killed in that country in the countries under siege and there are many diseases an epidemic diseases in there like cholera and they are under much pressure and they have every right to defend themselves one more point actually
2:27 am
with regard to major general hossam soleimani there have been some misc old saw that started actually from here and i've seen many reports continuing this miss report with regard to the red sea he never said that we've done or you know we are making the us president insecure in there he said that the united states has done meddling in the red sea like many other regions in the war and at that the region of the red sea is now in secure even for the americans themselves so that doesn't mean a threat actually that was you know. stating his assessment of the united states military plans in the middle east with regard to iran it's no secret that iran has options available to increase the crude prices you know if crude prices rise more than some specific levels then rounding international support for sanctions
2:28 am
would be a very difficult and cumbersome. i'm sat task for the donald trump and his administration ok but just just because you have a second start and that is a i do want to keep on talking to the other two guests so in thirty seconds though would you accept that what has happened whether it's oil tankers plural or a warship singular doesn't really matter would you accept two points point number one the symbolism here is huge and point number two arguably it has iranian fingerprints on it i don't believe that iranian is have been involved not at all because if iran means to increase the oil prices through such moves then it needs to take a very tough and strong and much more powerful action in order to boost prices are ten dollars plus but such an action by the end so a lot movement it could probably increase prices for nor more than a few dollars maybe one or two dollars not more for a very limited short period of time because millionaires are consumers would enter
2:29 am
this scene in order to ensure the free for all of oil in bottom and that so if iran wants to play some kind of counter strategy against the u.s. sanctions that it needs to take a much more powerful action i don't believe that iran has been involved member selim in london does this mean that who data becomes even more of a battlefield than it has been to date because the data is crucial to taking the tension out of this conflict because of humanitarian aid and because of trade. it will indeed but the most important thing is this three act of bob and mendip through which a lot millions of barrels of oil pots every day and it's way to europe for saudi arabia and the united arab emirates to a great extent most of their oil goes through the ages of accretion so they can
2:30 am
bypass this threat of by an amended but for oil bestand for the european union countries it has to pass through the man they have and anyway and he threat to their routes through which they always thank his goal to the price of oil it might not be much but for because i am being it will add one or two dollars that is not that much at a time when prices anyway out of going to go up based on the positive fundamentals of the global oil market but somehow hussein in washington bahrain the a bahraini authorities are on record as saying they want immediate global action what does that mean. well i think that's a very important call from the bar a nice but we need to understand that bahrain is part of the saudi coalition against the who t.f.
2:31 am
first of all second of all we need to understand that this oil the oil prices are an incredibly important domestic political issue in the united states and of course in europe as well and so while the saudis and the am roddy's may not be so concerned with the. cross route that doesn't change the fact that the international community should be extremely concerned and as you rightly pointed out earlier the port at al who data is extremely important because that is the access point for essentially all goods and services from the sea to reach the many people both in items to get out and as you pointed out the humanitarian. supplies to get in as we all know the cholera epidemic in yemen has reached just absolutely exponential numbers and it's continuing to grow and there's really no excuse for it because
2:32 am
cholera is something that we do have medical solutions for and so we continue to see massive amounts of civilian suffering at the hands of the saudi led coalition and they constantly use you know who to rebels and not wanting weapons to be transferred into yemen to support the rebels as an excuse to not allow a number of humanitarian aid to get in and so i think it is very important for the united states and for europe to place pressure on saudi arabia and on the united arab emirates to allow for more humanitarian support there and to pressure them to come to the negotiating table with the whole so we don't see this continue to escalate because as i pointed out earlier iran if they so choose. could it cut off the strait of hormuz which would have extremely detrimental impacts i think the. total cutoff is unlikely because they also collect tariffs from all steps passing
2:33 am
through the strait of hormuz and so they like some ships passing but we it wouldn't be out of the question to have them temporarily restrict certain exports which would concur couldn't cause it was egregious detriment to the united states and european economies if not the economy worldwide stuff in a concession from your vantage point what will happen if that coal from the bahraini is for international immediate global help full fee is and there's no help coming over the horizon. well i do believe for much of the statements made by your other guest from washington is true that the yemenis are under a tight seas there is a catastrophe a disaster in there and the international community especially the u.n. should play a been a major role in resolving this problem through forcing solve the arabia and its
2:34 am
coalition to stop attacks on the nation and resolve this problem for the sake of humanitarian causes of in the meantime i believe the arabia and its allies are trying to make some kind of propaganda ad of this of saying that there is a very immediate hazard and threat to of the free flow of energy to parts of the world then energy consumers would be surely sensitive and there would come onto the scene to lay pressure on the who thiis or in solar a lot movement in order to you know of will push them back from the data and that that's what they are doing i believe a much more need of much more power is needed to be placed on the saudis to step back and so far they and the u.a.e. have failed to you know capture or they'd up or and there is no reason or sign to
2:35 am
for us to believe that they could do it in future but what they are doing is wreaking havoc on the nation that that's what is needed that's the immediate necessity men do is there more than a grain of truth that's what mr author is saying given that saudi arabia is oil you know despite m.b.'s reinventing the economy allegedly over the next five to ten years you know employing saudis in proper jobs instead of just enjoying the profit margin of a massive oil industry why can't they just flip the oil surprise supply from the east of the country to the west they've got the ships they've got the infrastructure they've got the pipelines. because the bulk of that is standing ovations and ketamine as food loading the saudi oil in the eastern part of saudi arabia however saudi arabia has a pipeline oil pipeline which can transmit the oil from the east to the
2:36 am
port on the red sea and that is that pipeline was built by iraqi money during the iraq iran war so as to let. exports go through and avoid the strait of automobiles the saudis have expanded that in fact doubled its capacity to four million barrels and there are a care bill in this case of exporting four million barrels through that pipeline that's bypassing the state of babel amended and also by passing in the future and destroying it of homo's so the saudis have managed well with that at least half of their oil exports will good that about how all of our through that pipeline the exports will have to go to europe because remember most of the saudi oil exports go
2:37 am
to the age or pacific region so they have to pass the senate of lattimer's but they can bypass this threat of babel mendip and go through the asia pacific region however for their exports to europe they can easily manage through the red sea so is going on to europe so as for the installations itself as the only fields you remember all of the oil fields if not the overwhelming majority of this audi oil fields are looking at it in the east them out of saudi any bia so they can craftsman the. into the dead sea but there is steady ashes and that a third of that will remain and or of that time in the east then bought out of saudi arabia bessemer is there a chance that if this incident gets purchased outside the immediate area the whole situation could get worse before it gets better because people might use it as
2:38 am
a springboard to kind of reinvigorate their standing approach to their relationship say with saudi arabia donald trump you know couple of months back he had the big thing saying twelve and a half billion dollars worth of a deal with saudi arabia he's got a very specific attitude towards the crown prince and clearly a very specific attitude towards iran as well. exactly and that is one of my primary concerns because i think of the trump administration has allowed the saudi regime to operate largely unchecked and is using hatred towards iran in the united states and in saudi arabia and in israel as a political talking point domestically a lot of the general population doesn't understand the linkages between oil prices and these different straits and points of entry and how this aggressive behavior by saudi arabia is increasing the price of oil down to the consumer level
2:39 am
i think that it's very frustrating to see donald trump so supportive of the saudi arabia. interests almost to the detriment of the united states i think it would serve us much better in the united states if he took a slightly more balanced approach gave credit where credit was due we already know that iran was complying with the iran deal despite that president chose to pull out of it and it's caused a number of issues and now as you know president trump has has talked about imposing secondary sanctions on countries that operate and do business with iran which in which raises a number of sovereignty issues and also places tension on our relations with those separate nations including many european traditional allies stuff into iran what are the chances as well that this push is to run on to the bank salutes and also pushes saudi arabia on to the back foot as well because they might have to
2:40 am
rebalance what they do with their was ships that are at sea off the coast of yemen and they might literally have to move to and around the coast so what they've been doing over eastern coast still have to start doing the southwestern coast. well you know iran has been conducting anti-piracy patrols in by the bottom and by the navy since two thousand and six according to international laws and according to you know of facts present facts we know that they have never been involved in yemen story or they have never had any problem with the saudis or others they have actually rescued thousands of foreign and non iranian ships that have come under attack by pirates in that region in all throughout the last twelve years so iran is not present end there miller in military terms as regards yemen saudi arabia
2:41 am
problem the point is that the solo these have been you know supporting terrorist groups across the middle east they have been helping train clamp down on a democracy seeking movement of the people for the last several years they waged the war on yemen and they have been even threatening a war against iran you know the crown prince and the fact the ruler ruler mamak been sellman said months ago that they intend to take the war to tehran and then less than a month later there we saw a couple of terrorist attacks by eisel or die at the iranian parliament and in mount khomeini shrine and this means that they are only escalating tensions in this region if the world especially energy consumers intend to guarantee the security of supplies they need to harness all with the rulers. of an attorney i'm going to have you know for us to use which i wanted more time in all of this i want to get your
2:42 am
closing thoughts because we are approaching end of the program member selami in london so we're talking about a proxy war here but there were predictions that this kind of incident was going to happen predictions going back twelve fifteen months why is it happening now. well it's by accident it happened but since the truth is i have achieved some success now of the theory saudi oil exports through the bab and amended story that they will be emboldened to do more of that and that will continue however i make a point that the saudis decision the saudi decision makers should read history the british empire refrained from acute pieing north yemen and limited itself to south yemen in them simply because the tober guffey
2:43 am
of yemen nobody can so brits yemen and occupy it as state that if that is the case they should learn that they must cut their losses and leave yemen or at least endeavor to reach a peace treaty with the qualities and leave yemen and on in that case the yemen will not be a threat to saudi arabia nor will it bubble mandy be a threat to oil there is another point i want to mention which a lot of colleagues from washington mentioned. rice principle how about a bit. advice principle hammad been sent not they'll invest money in the united states because of that is over litigate in relation to nine eleven you know all of that the kong going to says a good read a little what the sixteen overwhelmingly which lifts the immunity
2:44 am
all governments who are citizens would evolve in nine eleven and the case any single case is that by an american citizen means the of the benteke and government will freeze all assists and funds of saudi and understood induna system similarly once it's come in there and not points of the nine eleven people yes so my colleague in the middle east has cracked and then he says congress passed that bill it's called joffe the justice against state sponsors against terrorism act it passed with overwhelming popularity and congress because of popular support among the american public however president obama vetoed that bill precisely because he understood how detrimental back could put the united states in a position with our middle eastern allies and as we know some of these governments including the saudi arabian government the government and qatar have worked very
2:45 am
closely with the united states on at least eradicating state sponsorship of terrorism ok and cooperating with the united states in trying to identify internal terrorist groups of course there's a lot more work to be done to stood that was not actually active and present on the buck must stuff across chesham into iran in the next twenty seconds tell me this clearly donald trump will not get the saudis reined in that's never going to happen there's nobody to rein in the iranians this plenty of people who would like to bomb iran that's a matter of record so what are the chances that the. bonnie and step back from this i believe that the europeans and americans should act much more wisely when iran has so many options including checking of the you know the of vessels of all op trafficking or moving in the strait of hormuz so ok the last option i
2:46 am

2:56 am
well now the former pakistani cricketer imran khan has declared victory in the country's elections and promised a new pakistan around half of the votes have been counted but the official result is not likely to be confirmed until late on thursday ahead of the election there were allegations of army meddling and khan's rival party say there was blatant vote rigging at the country's elections oversight body rejects claims that the vote was rigged let's go to a solid binge of eight he brings us all the latest from the city of lahore and asama we know that imran khan's party has a clear lead on its rivals but is it going to be enough to give him an overall majority or is he likely going to have to seek out coalition partners as. well if you go by the body language of imran khan the statesman that the saw in his first speech after the declaration of these initial aposhian results it seems like he's very confident that he's going to make. it be able to make the government but
2:57 am
it is by all accounts going to require at least one other part if not more because he does not have the number to try to get the majority of the two hundred seventy member national assembly this is going to be the one of the most interesting freezes in after the vote which has already been controversial by opposition parties but imran khan and when he came out today from his residence in. we saw him come out with a regular conciliation be abroad three saw him come out with all of the answers to all of the questions that the opposition had been raising including about of rigging imran khan also talked about what he envisions pakistan's role in its foreign policy is going to be would be improved relations with india and afghanistan and course with the united states as well but he made it made sure that the country itself. listens to his reform vijender before he talks about anything else. i want to thank god the today we
2:58 am
were successful and we got the mandate i now want to outline my vision for pakistan we're going to uplift poor people we're going to uplift the labor and laborers who are weak who are dying of hunger our population is either extremely rich or extremely poor if god wills we will fulfill all our promises.
2:59 am
3:00 am
let's now speak some more about a story with pakistani t.v. and but it's gone as p.j. near he is also in the hole thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us i just want to pick up on a point that was being made there about what to the opposition parties the rivals to imran khan's p.t.i. party might do now how do you see this unfolding because it looks as though imran khan's party does have the dominant lead in the results so far how will his
3:01 am
opponents pursue these allegations of fraud an interference in the election. well this is a very tricky situation because the same thing happened in the last elections when emraan said there was a lot of rigging and his ballot boxes weren't opened enough today the opposition is saying exactly the same but here i think we got a breath of fresh air and he said in his speech that he's willing to see whatever a geisha is and whatever you know mismanagement has been taking place he's willing to basically investigate it but to he go the situation is not that p.t.i. has what the situation is the fragility of the matter age which might take place between pm and the pox on people's party you know that is where the real crux lies and on top of that we have to see what iran does on a global level how does how does pakistan face up to the united states and of
3:02 am
course to china so these are the big factors which i think are going to be more predominant in. outlook towards his new government but again forming the new government i think it's going to be a very tricky job because he has accused both of them for corruption and of course for you know let's say for bad governance now how they intend to get back in this is going to be a very tricky situation in that in the time to cut so then where does that leave his position does he have to get in bed with one of these parties that he has has always see as our relationship way then or dead to to move forward and to become prime minister. one of them he is going to have two pillows on his bed because with one pillow he just can't get into bed with either of them because there is a lot of mistrust and trust deficit so he's got to be playing a lot more i'd say a change droll from the volatile from that aggressive role into
3:03 am
a more decided role to get them back and again the message which you give today i think that was a good refreshing message where he said that i know he's willing to he's willing to get everybody on board is willing to talk to them the data something a new river on a new pakistan and a new approach and the politics that and so i think of one sees most down and he gets his final results knows where he is standing on the provincial level and the national level i think then tomorrow i think he'd be in a position to make some sort of judgment because he's called all his entire leadership into his residence and by the gullah in islamabad to have a chat with them to discuss exactly the line affection the spot it's got to be taken up to us again just i just say sorry sorry to interrupt this is difficult sorry to interrupt you p.j. but just very briefly he can't have it both ways he can't promise a new beginning a new dawn for the country but then at the same time aligned himself with the
3:04 am
parties that everyone is familiar with did he set expectations way too high. i do agree on that but again i think the independence here will play a very important role because i will still figuring really that it was going to be a hung parliament little did we know that he would come along and you know give a big surprise as the preeminent evelyn did in the last elections so yes he's got to play a very very sensible role because look let's make one thing very clear that india really has got to be negated whoever comes in him or on is if i've got to see along with this coalition partners how do the handle india because as it is right now we're in the great watch if you go to get out of that great watch you've got to come out on the global platform and think much higher than this little bit of politics what you're seeing in the country but yes i quite agree with you that jim
3:05 am
rudd has to really come out and do a short set of a lot of seasoning as he did perhaps when he was playing international cricket all right well thank you very much we appreciate your thoughts and your analysis on this story p.j. in lahore remember you can see all the live official results as they come in on this special al-jazeera page on the pakistan election analysis that it takes you behind the story as well of course the address al jazeera dot com well now the united nations secretary general has written to old stuff and member states warning that the u.n. is on the edge of bankruptcy let's get more on this now from diplomatic attitude james bass who is at the new u.n. in new york james what does this mean. well vai's are unprecedented letters that have been written by the un secretary general happens actually to be on holiday at the moment writing to all one hundred ninety three member states to all his staff the reason for the problem is that the un relies
3:06 am
on money coming from each of the member states who pay their jews there are a hundred ninety three member states so far though only one hundred twelve paid in normally by this point in the year more have paid and so they are facing a budget shortfall it means that he's concerned and he's urged staff to try and save money where possible in his letter to them he says our cash flow is never been this low so early in the calendar year and the broader trend is also concerning we're running out of cash sooner and staying in the red longer he says these are challenging times obviously to solve the problem is going to need more money from those member states and from those that pay the most money of course the biggest donor is the united states and it hasn't yet paid its jews he says the member states it pains me to write letters as this one and organizations such as ours

cricketer iran khan is declared victory in pakistan's elections with around half of the votes counted official results are expected within twenty four hours. and the anger is growing among local residents in greece after a wildfire left at least eighty three people dead some say authorities didn't respond soon enough. now there are new warnings from the charity save the children that yemen is on the verge of a second cholera epidemic more than a million people were infected last year in just the first week of this month some three thousand new suspected cases have been reported. reports. in yemen's port city of a data eight month old lena is suffering from severe malnutrition two of her siblings have already died from diarrhea and fever had been on how can the lina is exhausted and suffering she's in a weak state we buy food as much as we can afford but everything sketches we have
3:18 am
had enough feel afraid and weary tens of thousands of yemeni children like lena risk of contracting cholera in these hot summer conditions the disease could spread rapidly last year her data had one hundred sixty four thousand cases out of more than a million nationwide in the first week of july alone thousands of new suspected cases were reported charities like save the children say they are doing all they can to help kids like lena we are able to help but how much longer if we can't get humanitarian supplies in here if we cut get medicine in here save the children says what data could be ground zero for new cholera epidemic in one district new cases increased by one hundred ten percent between mid may and mid june food emergency supplies and medicines were already scarce and the saudi emirate he led offensive
3:19 am
against with the rebels has turned hospitals into rubble and damaged water and sewer pipes thousands who have scaped are living in makeshift camps with no sanitation and water these conditions have left children especially fall nirpal that many children hair and these children have seen things children should never see eye to so again where they learned about explosives i saw at play where children are going through the trauma of being bombed with the possibility of hard data being besieged save the children is warning children here won't have a chance to survive paul chatterjee on al-jazeera. the save the children's global c.e.o. hella thorning schmidt two you saw in that report joins me in the studio announce she was in yemen earlier this month and i know you were telling me that you are the beginning of the month you spent some time in the south and also in the northern part of yemen but of course it was only last year that we were talking about
3:20 am
hospitals and health care on the brink of collapse a shortage of supplies a new cases of cholera how do you describe the situation now where as one of the worst places i've ever seen and we actually save the children do not hesitate to describe as perhaps the worst place to be a child on earth the problem with this crisis is that it's put perhaps also the most forgotten and i spoke to so many yemeni people and they feel that the international community have forgotten have forgotten them and it's worse now than it was a year ago and now we are we are very worried that there will be siege of the port city of who data which will worsen the situation particular for the people who are in there but also for the people who are trying to leave the data and just elaborate on that a little bit because there have long been concerns about a prolonged and destructive battle for the strategic port city of data if we if we do see that materialize what does that mean for the rest of the country well in a day it will mean that colorado will break out again already this months we have
3:21 am
seen three thousand examples of cholera and children dying from this i don't know for people who know what color is but it causes diarrhea it causes vomiting and these children they simply die from this because they're very vulnerable in the first place so that is what we will definitely see it but we're also seeing people in the need of most basic things they don't have access to clean water sanitation has been bombed out completely so these are people who live on the brink brink of existence also we have seen people fleeing from what data i met some of those people living in it's not even camps it's just makes if places where they don't have access to. water or anything i saw children being that scene of for our stuff and save the children under a tree this is something that should not happen in two thousand and eighteen and the message is that it can be stopped is a manmade crisis and it should be stopped by men and women talking to the un the international community to stop the suffering for these people can you tell me more
3:22 am
about what you saw or what you witnessed when you were that yemen is a bombed out country and it goes its base on both sides i went to sana in the north and aden in the south and i saw bombed out hospitals roads bombed our houses on both sides and that for the for example the hospitals they do not work we have stuff that the stuff that has not been paid for for more than a year they come into work anyway there's no supplies if you look at the medicine cop in the hospital that's absolutely nothing there but you know what is actually the absolute worst is the eerie silence when you walk into a hostile toward the notes of children but they don't say anything anymore they don't cry anymore because they are suffering from malnutrition severe malnutrition and some of them will not survive this so this is what we are seeing their new place that these run is because agencies like save the children are running hospitals but things are not working there's no government on each side things are
3:23 am
not working and it's a bombed out country so what do you do i appreciate your call in action to address what is a humanitarian situation and he sinks deeper into crisis but what can realistically be done when the good news is that things can be done i mean first of all i would both the warring parties to allow humanitarian access it what we're seeing these days is a new type of warfare where it is become a weapons of war to deny humanitarian access that means for example that say the children cannot get access with simple things like medicine and water and food to children. we cannot get access because we're not allowed access so first of all allow us that access on the ground that's the first thing the other thing is of course to stop the fighting and i know that's easier said than done i come from politics i know these things but there is a special u.n. envoy binns national community has to be pushed to engage even more and i'm urging
3:24 am
the warring parties to look at the suffering of children i spoke to both sides of the of this conflict and i know that everyone cares about children so stop stop this. war and stop the conflict and then just a little bit to make sure that we can get access for the humanitarian. assistance that these people so desperately needs are specked for the humanitarian norms and principles this thank you very much. i want to read you some news just in now the israeli army saying that three israelis have been seriously wounded in a knife attack in the west bank now earlier the military wing of hamas in gaza said that it was on high alert after three hemis members were killed in israeli attacks a commander for the brigade said that israel would pay a price for the ass strikes the israeli army says it responded to that after its troops were shot out near the border with gaza a mass leaves of

3:26 am
3:27 am
for many the war is not over russia and syria see it differently even though there is no to go shifted search of it to the conflict. i think going back returning to their country should die and link building and building a sustainable news you need to address the root causes of the conflict i think this is the most it's not the first time russia has asked the international community to help rebuild syria but those countries have a link to reconstruction money to a political transition that involves the u.s. it's not clear if their position has changed with the changes underway in syria so where else is it or lebanon. hundreds of people have taken to the streets of the ethiopian capital to protest over the murder of a nihil down construction manager its body was found inside

3:29 am
back with their parents after an earlier court deadline but the trouble ministration has identified over two and a half thousand children over the age of five it says was separated from their parents also adding to a government attorney over a thousand parents have been successfully reunited with that with their children by choose day but the administration says nine hundred seventeen parents are not eligible to be reunited these include four hundred sixty three parents who are no longer in the u.s. two hundred sixty two are undergoing review and sixty four the government says have criminal records another one hundred thirty is said to of waive their right to be reunited for the american civil liberties union say that some may not have understood what they were agreeing to. there is heidi castro joins us live now from macallan texas what is the likelihood that the government will meet the court deadline to reunify families. merryman looks like there's
3:30 am
zero likelihood that all of some three thousand children who were separated by the trump ministration at the border from their parents will be reunited by tonight's big night deadline government attorneys say something thousand or so children have been deemed what they call in eligible occasion with their parents many of them because their parents have been deported or released elsewhere into the country in the u.s. government has lost track of them it is unclear what will become of this children of these children what plan the government will have for their care but what is clear is that each day of continued separation from their mother or father is another day of trauma and that is of particular concern to my guests today this is marsha graf and she's with american academy of pediatrics and she specializes in the health care of immigrant children dr griffin when you hear about these thousand or so ineligible children who are now seeing their peers heading off to these happy reunions with their families yet they are left behind what are they doing. tear.
3:31 am
pure terror because you can imagine they were torn apart from their parents and now they're somewhere where they don't know who the other people there are they don't have a trusted caregiver and so there's the mere act of being away from their parents is traumatizing and indefinitely so not knowing when they get to go or if they get to go is horrific we understand that many of these children are with foster families but that the majority of them are in government run shelters what is the condition of the shelters well it's the shelters are office of refugees resettlement shelters and they contract with child welfare agencies to provide care. for these children these agencies are child friendly but. even if they're child friendly and they have classes and they have clothes for them and nice meals for them it is still detention so even a gilded cage is the cage these children are away from their parents and they need
3:32 am
to be released and as a medical professional i know you are particularly concerned about what lasting or short term damage this is doing on the children what are those ok virtually every large medical organization has sent letters to congress has done press conferences written policy statements against the separation of children because we all know the long term and short term consequences to their health and so we've all written about them they will have developmental delays they will have long term chronic care problems they will have regression in their developmental status but these effects of this much stress on all their organs creates long term problems in their health one of the other things that's very concerning is if the parents are with the child and the child does not know what their chronic illness is or any concerns
3:33 am
help them in the past these children have no ways of telling their medical providers that the people in those agencies or that foster care this is broken is so you have that risk that each child will not receive the care in the time that they should be receiving it a long list of concerns thank you very much dr griffin and again this midnight in the united states is the deadline for all children to be reunified with their parents who are separate at the border and there and that is not going to happen and we will see how the judge will respond whether he will hold the u.s. government in contempt of court miriam thank you very much for macallan texas heidi jocasta. well now massive plunge in facebook stocks as. heavily on the technology sector in the united states facebook has dropped twenty percent off of the social media giant warned of lower than expected growth and revised profit margins plummeting stock price on wednesday wiped out more than one hundred billion dollars
