intervention which could force nicolas maduro from power at the border aid is being blocked by the military. last night on the an astronaut of our national sovereignty is made vulnerable with a show called humanitarian aid and peace is threatened by the government of mr donald trump who last sunday in a televised interview ratified his threat of a military invasion against venezuela in venezuela they have driven us to the point that libya was taken or that syria was taken to the point of unarmed opposition they have attempted that we have not allowed them to and venezuela is it peace. well we can go live now to the venezuelan capital caracas our correspondent there is to raise above and to raise we've seen shots in all of this humanitarian so-called humanitarian aid starts up at the border the president vowing not to let it in how popular a decision is that among the people you're in the center of the city by the looks of it in what could be
a market. well that's correct we are here at a market in the center of the city and people here are extremely worried about the economic situation in venezuela the situation there is hyperinflation prices are changing from one minute to another the government has tried to take some desperate measures like devaluating the currency also forcing banks for example to increase their reserves and their research here are expected to be one hundred percent in another country it should be between fifteen and twenty percent when here is one hundred percent in order to try to control hyperinflation but what that has generated is that there is no cash on the street there is very very little cash so people are becoming desperate because of the ongoing economic crisis so when you talk to people and they tell you that with one minimum wage they can buy only four packs of eggs they're saying that that humanitarian aid is desperately needed the big question is whether that aid is going to solve the real problem that exists
here which is basically the economy it's obviously going to bring in some relief because what we're hearing is that for example other going to some some emergency medications also some food for around five thousand people but i saw force not going to solve the real problem that exists in venezuela today and president daughter's continuing with his a vow not to allow this a did he thinks that there is there is more to it than just the medicines and food that you just mentioned it will be the beginning of the end perhaps the his government. well most definitely the president is saying that humanitarian aid is be used as a show by the opposition to allow the interference of the united states in this country we know for example that food is piling up at the border between venezuela and colombia we also know for example that the border between venezuela and brazil that could be another entering point but that the military already blocked
a role there what we know that happened there is that an indigenous community from that area carried out another roadblock in order to get the military out because they are waiting and expecting some type of a system those are very isolated location of course as i said before the government is saying that this is the news but what the opposition is saying that this of course are ways of pressuring the precedent because they believe that he that he will they want him to call for presidential elections because they believe that the situation is completely out of control economically in venezuela that people are dying that people are hungry and that the only way out of the current crisis is a new president and you've you've traveled around the country quite a bit in the last few days today as i'm just wondering give us a sense of what you think public opinion is of people still vouching for president nicolas maduro. well his
popularity has definitely deteriorated in the past year i mean we were just a few days ago at a hospital where i at least fourteen babies died because of contaminated water people in that city were basically telling us that they're tired that there's desperately in need of help and that model can no longer. get provided assistance still there's some sectors within the country that are still very loyal to nicole out mother with all those generally many of them work for example in state companies many who believe in a war chavez socialist revolution and believe that the way out of the crisis is with this administrations with changes necessary within this is demonstration and mostly structural reforms in order to improve the economy of course the other side of the story is the opposition is an opposition that is saying that this administration can no longer control the core of the country and can no longer control the economic crisis that have people here desperate for the situation today
is a bow lies in the venezuelan capital caracas thank you so it appears as if donald trump is not going to take any action against saudi arabian officials for the murder of. but one of his key advisers has suggested there will be consequences mike hanna has more from washington. president trump departs for his annual medical exam declining to on such shouted questions on any subject all indications are will be no response to the deadline set by the senate following the murder of jamal khashoggi the senate sent a letter to president trump invoking the global magnitsky act which gave president trump one hundred twenty days to investigate the murder and impose sanctions against those responsible in a follow up letter to the senate asa president to specifically investigate any role the crown prince mohammed bin solomon or m.p.'s may have played in the murder in b.s. the crown prince is
a wrecking ball. and he's complicit in the murder mystery because shogi i think he's crazy to think he is dangerous and he has put their relationship at risk but president trump has steadfastly insisted the us solve the relationship is more important than establishing accountability for murder it's all about america first we're not going to give up hundreds of billions of dollars in orders and let russia china and everybody else have a it's all about for me very simple it's america first saudi arabia's senior diplomat continues to deny any involvement by the kingdom's leaders in the murder refusing to react to a new york times report that the crown prince is on record as saying he would use a bullet on jamal khashoggi. the report dismissed as based on unknown sources and the following tweet posted on the saudi foreign ministry account we will hold who
are responsible for the death of her showed she to account the question is what happens now the president has ignored the ultimatum the answer is simply nothing they are no punitive measures involved in this process which essentially relies on the good faith of all parties something the president's critics contend is absent in the white house but the stairs not mean an end to the matter the question of accountability for jamal khashoggi murder has rid bipartisan support in congress and the motion is agreed to and legislation seeking sanctions against saudi arabia and possibly the crown prince specifically is being widely discussed in both house and senate mike hanna al-jazeera washington. right here on set with me is now i'm bashar our senior political analyst so it looks as i know very much is going to come out of the white house does that increase the possibility of nobody at the
highest all of the highest echelons ever being held accountable for the men of this outreach and this doesn't seem like it for the moment because since the democrats won congress there is no more more pressure on the trump administration to come up to come clean about this there's also more pressure on the cia to release all that it has about all of those phone calls or text messages or orders being given by the highest people in the saudi government that are behind the killing of. so i think with public pressure in the united states with congressional pressure in the united states any attempt or any desire or hope by that and mystery and that this is going to simply going to blow away that this will die out it's not going away any where you make a good point because of course there is a new congress in place with the democrats now controlling the lower house and as
we've seen from the senate already there is an appetite for accountability for all this crime so president tom cult city's economy no he can't my guess is is that he's trying to gain time and i think he is trying to gain time for the simple reason. of course is analysis not prediction per se i think president trump hopes. the at one point in time in the near future the saudis are going to be . asked to support his son in those jared questioners initiative in israel palestine and i think he understands that with israeli support for the n.b.a.'s congressional pressure on soldiery be a might go away there is this one understanding that the only person able to do to save money is not king solomon it's actually prime minister netanyahu and if one hundred one does agree to the american new initiative the so-called deal of the
century that basically trumps israel and for six palestine. that venn congress might take it easy and even the par i mean in the united states by take it easy on it let's go back to ankara then and what are the options now before the turkish authorities. made mention of perhaps the cia revealing the information that they have why did the turks do that the turks have got their serial apparently which has been. which has been given to a select few to listen to what it they go public where it seems if we understood from the foreign minister yesterday that turkey is waiting for a number of countries to join it in order to launch that very official inquiry by the united nations so if we understand it right the foreign minister of turkey says that turkey and a number of countries will be asking officially the united nations to start the
investigation and that turkey will then give all that it has to the un committee that will be overlooking this investigation well on the shower thank you very much indeed. now at least eight people have been killed fourteen police officers have been injured during protests in haiti's capital port au prince thousands of people are now demanding the president steps down there accusing him of in action against corruption kevin calvert triple. refusing to go. they marched chanted and demonstrated thousands demanding the resignation of haiti's president. the protests turned violent as some four with police used tear gas and fired several bullets into the ear to disperse the crowd. across the capital port au prince protest to set fire to vehicles and

massive population sang in congress can you do something like that it's impossible that's one of the main reasons that we decided to stand up with the greek people know that with the help. the lightest protests follow another report on corruption by the sapir e a court of order says this has further angered the opposition for several years we will not stop we will continue on the eighth and ninth of february to finish with president bowie's if he does not want to step down from pa we are going to name an interim president in the coming days. he has had a difficult few years battling a cholera epidemic the aftermath of the twenty thousand earthquake and political turmoil but corruption is a big problem and many haitians want it to change given calvert's al-jazeera. still to come here on al-jazeera the thai princess who try to enter politics has
