changed relations between saudi and the western world. says he's ready to talk to the crown prince about what happened. to egypt sure i have always been very clear on the case of saudi arabia and i will inevitably have the opportunity to discuss it with the saudi crown prince on the margins of this g. twenty meeting we will have the opportunity to discuss it among european leaders as i requested before the g. seven donald trump arrived in one aside is on thursday evening ready to discuss the trade war between the united states and china he's cancelled he's meeting with russian president vladimir putin after the seizure of crane and ships by russia at the crimean peninsula. this protester came all the way from the united states carrying a baby trump. he's been an activist opposing the u.s. foreign policy since the vietnam war we would like the president of the united

states that are a little bit more mature that's if i was going to boil it down to just one statement it would be that we think it's asinine that he's on twitter we think it's asinine that he's casual and that you. pick fights seems to want to take the smallest in walworth road instead of the high the g twenty begins proper on friday this mass yoga session was organized to help leaders concentrate on resoldering their differences. the protest around when a site is will remind them how hard that task is likely to be. al jazeera as alan fischer is also and when is there is and has this update. oh a number of issues have dominated the run up to the g twenty the talking about the agenda they're talking about mohammed bin salminen who will meet the saudi crown prince we knew already that donald trump isn't going to do that we know that president putin would like to we know that mohammed bin salman has requested to
7:09 am
meet president of turkey that may well happen but everyone's going to be watching to see who shakes his hand who welcomes him to the dinner who sits beside him who he stands next to in the family photo all of this will give an indication on whether or not mohammed bin selman is being welcomed back into the international community if the international community is ready to put aside the issues they have particularly over the killing of jamal khashoggi in fact one senior royal said at the weekend that if you want to talk about the global economy if you want to do business then you really have to deal with the saudi government and that means dealing with mohamed ben solomon but the organizers of the g. twenty and global leaders are also hoping that crucial issues will be discussed things like global warming things like the global economy there are some experts who say we could well be heading for another recession not quite as bad as two thousand and eight but something that would cause untold misery for many people around the globe while the u.n. secretary general is in argentina he had

7:14 am
that's the good news and so far more than thirty thousand doses of vaccine that's been deployed but the problem is working in such an unstable area you have to ensure the safety of the health of the vaccinators and you have to be able to trace potential contacts and get vaccinated so in theory this should be. a non-problem we should be able to quickly contain this through use of the vaccine but because of the massive political instability one of the most difficult parts of the world there really slows things down and unfortunately so far more than two hundred people perished. still ahead on al-jazeera. she begged them to kill a member of china's weekend minority tells of her torture in a detention camp. and full steam ahead the latest move in thawing relations between north and south korea. from dusky sunsets if it springs event. to sunrise
