in parliament they look as if they could be absolutely decimated in today's election and so there will need to be some form of of an opposition to challenge. the mice that the lions. but it's not clear yet who that would be there are several parties including the republicans that maybe pick up a few seats that the past year and with an overall majority will be able to bring through those reforms but on the downside of course ironically is that armenian democracy. certainly will have a new shape in another one party government but at least. he'll be able to go ahead with those changes or at least he will try to deliver on those promises that he made things like dealing with the economy bringing in more foreign investment he's also going to have to tackle head on some really cool issues like the nagorno-karabakh conflict with azerbaijan and closed all of this with turkey if
1:01 am
they can get those borders open i would really change the dynamic in this region but those are serious challenges yes and as you say no exit polls to be expected but will stay across any information should it in march thank you very much robin farseer walk without all the latest on the election in armenia while the gulf cooperation council has been meeting in riyadh with divisions between the six members more and more exposed saudi arabia's king someone opened the talks in the capital he did not address the ongoing blockade of cattle by three g. c. c. members bahrain the u.a.e. and for saudi arabia but the emir of kuwait has been part of mediation efforts call for an end to regional to spirits. i don't ever there and though we have faced a lot of challenges and on top of them there are the differences between our g.c.c. nations we need not to risk the interests of our peoples the peoples of the g.c.c.
1:02 am
council states the g.c.c. must not be hesitant we need to keep our situation firm stand firm and we need to be able to face the challenges in our region. has more now from kuwait city. the kuwaiti i mean was somebody who has always been leading attempts to try and find a mediation in fact the last summit took place here in kuwait and qatar sent its amir as a sign of respect or maybe encouragement or support for these mediation efforts however the saudis the united arab emirates and the behind has refused to send any senior official to represent them this time around in the riyadh it is cut out of this has decided to truce to send its deputy or assistant foreign minister whilst the heads of states or at least senior members of the blockading nations exist the saudi king king solomon when he spoke in his opening remarks spoke about many different issues but refused to talk about the blockade on qatar and these threats
1:03 am
posed to the unity of the gulf countries the quaids he. did mention it she did say that maybe there needs to be a lot of work put into the discourse in the media campaigns that have been ongoing now against different member states however obviously fall short of maybe them on the more serious action from the political leadership of the blockading nations but at least that will be seen by some that kuwait hasn't lost all hope despite the fact that this blockade has gone on for a year and a half significantly speaking if we think of what's most likely to come out of the summits from a tangible perspective very little relief as far as the saudis are concerned their media will try and shine a light to show that they still have some sort of leadership role in the region and therefore for them it will be seen as a success but when you're talking about the gulf cooperation council that's seen very little cooperation on economic fronts on the security fronts on the diplomatic fronts this summit will be very much like the one before whereby the optimist will
1:04 am
say there is something good in the fact that at least this has taken place presidents will point to the fact that obviously not all the heads of states are there on the realists will say well this corporation counsel short of maybe allowing for free movement and trade which now isn't the case it really hasn't achieved much over the years. meanwhile the outgoing u.s. ambassador to the u.n. has made her first public comments on the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi told the atlantic magazine that the saudi government doesn't get a pass we can't condone it we can ever say it's ok we can't ever support thuggish behavior and we have to say that well heidi jocasta has more on those comments from washington. you can see how she often has said that she agrees with trump's goals when it comes to foreign policy but not necessarily with his style and we saw her navigate that fine line throughout her tenure as u.n. ambassador and in this article two she states how she thinks saudi arabia is
1:05 am
a vital partner to the u.s. but that is in her words this thuggish behavior continues then that partnership is in jeopardy now when asked by the interviewer whether mohamed bin samon the crown prince of saudi arabia should be held responsible for the killing of jamal khashoggi she didn't you are saying that determination is up to the administration as we know trump has defended the crown prince he has said there is no direct evidence that he ordered the killing of khashoggi that is contrary to the conclusion of u.s. senators of both parties who were briefed by the cia last week their determination is that the prince is complicit in the murder in fact in the words of one republican senator that the crown prince would be convicted by a jury in less than thirty minutes to have for you on the program the refugees and migrants standing their ground in italy where political rhetoric has cultivated
