8:51 am
tripoli despite warnings and calls for calm from the united nations the libya rival factions seem to be moving towards a military confrontation and if that happens it could derail the u. and the sponsor peace talks due to be held here later this month but some analysts believe her father is trying to make sure he's included in the political process. i think that would like to force the hands of the board the u.n. and those attending. in a way that does not exclude him fearing that this conference may start a whole new path for libya in the next few years and that he may not be. included in that process the united nations secretary general antonio has arrived in libya to support the political process and he's expressed concern about
8:52 am
a potential showdown. very soon. for. movements to solve. for. the escalation most military. verbal the escalation. libya has been in turmoil since the nato backed remove all of its long time duffey in two hundred eleven and since twenty fourteen it has had two competing governments. but so far if it's to negotiate a political settlement unite libya and organize national elections appears to have failed. tripoli al jazeera has spoken to libya's interior minister says half taras trying to invade tripoli at a time the president he said call. yeah i mean why use weapons in
8:53 am
force to terrorize the people of libya to kill them and to force them to accept one thing only which is to be ruled by a military dictator what makes mr have to be a candidate then the other libyans if he's calling for a state with a strong army and police we are also calling for a state with a strong army and police and for the rule of law we will not be subdued by any use of force by any side or any person and if anyone is willing to use force that gives us we are ready to secure for us but we will not give up on democracy which is what we have always wanted from the beginning down to never a u.n. security council meeting on libya comes after france italy the u.k. and u.s. relation to one statement warning against military action and diplomatic editor james bass has more reaction from the nato summit in washington. libya wasn't on the formal agenda of the meeting here at the state department of nato foreign
8:54 am
ministers but it clearly was discussed on the margins of this meeting because we have a statement from some key nato countries and a major regional player the statement says that they are deeply concerned about the current fighting in libya it goes on at this sensitive moment in libya's transition military posturing and threats of unilateral action only risk propelling libya back towards chaos and then there comes a warning to general haftar the statement says all governments oppose any military action in libya and will hold accountable any libyan faction that precipitates further civil conflict what's interesting is the countries that have signed this statement it is france italy the u.s. the u.k. and the u.s. you have their members of the security council you have france of the security council members the one that has been most sympathetic to general haftar also
8:55 am
important the u.a.e. is signing this statement and they are the country that militarily has been backing general haftar the most so strong statements on the word from diplomats is that they are angry they are somewhat surprised that general have to made his move at a time when the u.n. secretary general was visiting libya they are concerned about the situation and the highlighting the arrogance of this move at this time answered the professor of politics at the university of texas and san antonio he says khalifa have taurus moment to play should not be seen as a surprise. the man has been saying it all the last two years it's a number of people. and he has been building his is trying to do that ultimately has the has he has the the hardware he has the will and it to use us and has communicated to his intentions
8:56 am
a long time ago so why his surprise today they're going to they can make as many speeches and deliberation experience but it is a little of both i mean the timing seems to be quite right for him so this is all because he was bypassed together he was not given the important role to play in any of this he controls eighty percent of the maybe even more ninety percent of the country he controls all they're all result of a country and if you will that is getting shoved aside as one secondly you have all judy has some also that there's no will not be a platform for what you want to you move against libya tunisia it won't do with either and so who's going to do with nato going to come up with. his political will to put his temples that want to move the militias and he's going to keep it and he's one who tremendous amount of support. people will thread up all this situation will that play us assistant secretary defense lawrence korb latest crisis poses
8:57 am
a serious challenge for the international community. i think the real question is what do they do if general haftar comes in and you provoke a war which unfortunately he probably would win what if what then and there you go back to the fact is it was a nato operation but they walked away too quickly i mean it's comparatively easy as the united states has found out to overthrow a government the real problem is to stay until you can get a stable government after that and i think hopefully that's the lesson that they learned it would be great if the you when the mediator can you know broker a ceasefire but the fact of the matter is you've got to back up your words with some threat of auction well obviously he has the strongest military forces but it will be a bloody battle because in addition to the government forces you also have in misrata you've got another militia and they have said they would fight with the
8:58 am
government true so nobody wins if you say if you start some sort of war and the question is would you be willing to send in some peacekeeping forces to keep the parties apart so in other conflicts and in the growing calls to and u.s. support for the saudi u.a.e. led war and yemen the u.s. house of representatives has backed a resolution which had already been approved by the senate and the bill will now go to president donald trump in the last month said he would veto the measure sheraton's he has more from washington d.c. . the policy of this resolution both in the house and the senate is significant on several levels first simply as regards the relationship between congress and the executive capitol hill and the white house this is congress' reasserting its authority as to the president's war making powers offer what seems many years since nine eleven certainly of the president seemingly getting into conflicts all over the world without much scrutiny of this is congress saying you do need the consent
8:59 am
all consent in order to do that and members of congress have been saying that they are going to start looking at conflicts far more closely will have to see whether that doesn't pan out but secondly as regards the relationship with saudi arabia it's a sign of just how bad that relationship has now become with congress patients has snapped since the murder of jamal khashoggi the saudi jonas in a way that other saudi actions have never seemed to seem to catalyze for example the war in yemen which began after all under president obama. has changed things on capitol hill members of congress are saying no matter what the president now does they're going to continue to scrutinize the relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia they're just not happy with it the man accused of attacking two mosques in new zealand has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric assessment to see if he's fit to go on trial australian britain tyrant on friday made his second court appearance in christ church where he was charged with fifty counts of murder and thirty nine charges of attempted murder
9:00 am
fifty people were killed last month when he opened fire during friday prayers is the prime minister has banned the sale of assault rifles and semiautomatic weapons and response. more head on al-jazeera. can complete my speech before rain still. water pouring from the ceiling to business and british parliament but there are fewer leaks from the talks with the opposition. the truth of what they really go through it's heartbreaking to hear what families are entering in their desperation to reach the united states. welcomes another look at the international full cost will soon find whether into eastern parts of china for the time being but the malaria cloud just makes.
