the got a may have been willing to share with with oman in kuwait keep in mind that romance been very helpful to god during the. during this whole gulf crisis in the last 2 years and kuwait is the mediator but there was no way that it could be shared with saudi arabia and the u.a.e. as long as the boycott was in place and the boycott is about much more than the world cup as you've written the middle east is passionate about football what happens and it's still a long way off but what happens if the can't help locate is still going on in 2022 because help would restrict fans from coming to the country but will the blockade ignatius' allow their own fans to travel that's the $64000.00 question i think that if indeed the gulf or if the boycott of culture continues until the world cup in 2022 saudi arabia the u.a.e. between egypt are going to have a really difficult problem it's
8:01 am
a soccer crazy part of the world this is the 1st time that a major sporting sporting event is being held in the middle east and in fact in their backyard and fans one are not allowed to travel to got to under the boycott but even if they were allowed the logistics of getting to god are given the cut in air. traffic the closure of the saudi got only border means that they the logistics of getting to got there would be very difficult so in the end you could see the boycotting states being put into a position where they will have to breach their own boycott so if if a 2026 will be a $48.00 team tournament what will that mean for the host nation. well for the but the america's so it's a shared world cup in 2026 they've got basically a number of years to prepare for this and you're talking about countries that already av
8:02 am
a significant degree of infrastructure in place so that will not be very difficult to accommodate. i think that the bed or the attempt by infantino the fee for president to persuade god to agree to a $48.00 team competition really was doing the bidding of the usa and the south and saudi arabia which have been pushing for that because they would ideally would like to see gutter deprived of the world cup of its world cup hosting rights but if that's not a chief who will at least fortunate to share the glory times kids took to many thanks indeed for being with us james dorsey but leisure libyan warlord khalifa haftar has rejected french appeals to put a halt to the fighting in the capital tripoli talks between have to and president emmanuel mccraw in paris failed to reach an agreement on a ceasefire after us forces have been fighting troops loyal to libya's internationally recognized government based in tripoli for weeks or to serious
8:03 am
natascha but the reports now from paris. it was not the 1st time that the french president a man or mark karr is meeting with the renegade commander after they have met several times before but is the 1st time that they are having a one on one talks and he comes nearly 7 weeks after have to launch an offensive to try and capture crude tripoli where the u.n. backed internationally recognized government is based now the u.n. backed prime minister fires i was right was also in paris a couple of weeks ago also had a meeting with the french president emmanuel mark on what michael is trying to do with these meetings is really talk to both sides to urge them to restore stability and calm to libya he wants them to agree to a cease fire and to return to the u.n. backed peace process is specially because the u.n. special envoy to libya has actually said that at this stage unless this crisis is resolved in some way and libya could be facing
8:04 am
a very long and bloody war well france is an official position in libya's that it backs the u.n. peace process but there are some analysts and experts over the years that have said that paris is supporting after and france has admitted in the past that it has given a certain amount of what they called technical know just tickle support to have to what paris says is that he is a useful ally in eastern libya in the fight against armed groups including i saw but what some say is that if you want to be considered as an honest broker a mediator as the french president does then it's of course very problematic if you are perceived to be supporting one side to the detriment of the other this is the news hour from al-jazeera still to come on the program a fresh offensive in have the latest on syria's. venezuelans looking for a miracle to help them through desperate times and later in sports find out about
8:05 am
the small german football team that's on the brink of a big thing. britain's prime minister to resign may is resisting calls to resign after the latest brands of plan backfired maize new pitch failed to win over both the opposition and many in her own party one of her senior cabinet ministers the leader of the house of commons andrea letson resigned after saying that she doesn't believe the new proposals can deliver briggs's the revised plan included a possible vote on whether to hold a 2nd briggs's referendum once legislation passes the 1st stage if we are going to deliver bracks it in this parliament we are going to have to pass a withdrawal agreement and we will not do so without holding focus on the issues that have divided us the most that includes votes on customs arrangements and on
8:06 am
a 2nd referendum we can pretend otherwise and carry on arguing and getting nowhere but in the end our job in this house is to take decisions not to duck them so i will push those decisions to this house because that is my duty and because it is the only way that we can deliver bricks is the on going on certainty of a briggs that has been blamed for the collapse of british steel the u.k. 2nd largest steelmaker as long as 3 reports thousands of jobs are at risk. exactly a year ago pritish steel produced this corporate film glamorizing what goes on inside its plants in sky. high quality tailored manufacturing the sort of thing the u.k. used to be feigned for all over the world. one year on the accountants of moved in british steel has collapsed putting some $25000.00 jobs in direct jeopardy the
8:07 am
government it seems was unwilling to provide just $30000000.00 pounds or $40000000.00 to. keep it afloat the opposition cannot believe it but also mr speaker i want to express on behalf of the labor party might outrage that the government has again failed our steel industry putting $5000.00 jobs at risk in british steel 20000 more in supply chain this government has failed those people the government will work closely with the official receiver and prospective new owners to achieve the best possible outcome for these sites the government is providing an indemnity to the official received who is now responsible for the operations we will take every possible step to ensure that these vital operations can continue the irony isn't lost on anyone that the news of the demise of british steel comes one day before european elections in which the conservative party is expected to receive a thrashing and the story of british steel plays into a much wider debate about brics it and the future of british manufacturing. has
8:08 am
been blamed in parts for the demise of british steel just like honda decision to close its car factory in the west of england it's widely thought the so-called hard bricks it would lead to the closure of nisanit in northeastern england as well to many voters the points of the exercise was to get politicians to pay more attention to their communities it's not happening the reality is and it's an uncomfortable truth is that we wouldn't be having these difficulties in the way in which they're presenting themselves this week if it wasn't for the decision to leave the european union perhaps the most startling statistic around british steel is that over the last 2 years alone china produced more steel than the u.k. has done since the industrial revolution in the 19th century maybe politicians think it isn't worth trying anymore but they don't have any other alternatives for people in scunthorpe it's difficult to explain a situation where the government can find $5000000000.00 to renovate the parliament building and another $5000000000.00 to protect the country against the worst of
8:09 am
a no deal brecht's it and yet cannot find the money to protect the u.k. . steel industry how the been explaining it so votes is is anybody's guess lawrence lee al-jazeera in london in northwestern syria rebels launched a counterattack against pro-government forces fighting has been intensifying in the area since last month and the u.s. says that it's concerned that chemical weapons may have been used to have a jump jhoom reports. in northwestern syria these rebels are advancing on pro-government positions in the town of comfort in the buddha this operations under way as government jets attack opposition strongholds according to the syrian observatory for human rights dozens of fighters have been killed on both sides this is part of an escalation in fighting since the russian backed syrian offensive in it began last month. and as the violence has intensified so has the humanitarian crisis syrian forces seized control of car from the buddha in northern how my
8:10 am
province in early may that area is largely controlled by the have you to show an armed opposition group formally affiliated with al qaida in syria. now hundreds of thousands of people living there are caught in the crossfire dozens of aid groups are calling for an immediate end to the conflict saying conditions have reached a crisis point in my out of the norm people say the towns marketplace was crowded when it was attacked by air raids. on the russian and regime planes struck the area of the mosque it's a crowded place in the middle of the cornish street. i let the shops are destroyed the flesh of the injured people is on the floor people are collecting their belongings the strike hit an hour before the morning ramadan meal. but according to the u.s. it may not just be conventional weapons that are now in use in syria the state department says pro-government forces may have carried out a chlorine gas attack on sunday in the region security experts say that would be very disturbing if proven true quite frankly they have
8:11 am
a negative track record in that area so i wouldn't be surprised at all they are in really this falls to russia to rein in in because russia is their pager and russia signed the agreement with the united states half dozen years ago or syria to get rid of its chemical weapons it will guarantee that and i mean again we're seeing this issue and it's really something that needs to be punished seriously and needs cross all red lines the state department says it will respond quickly and appropriately if it finds evidence of a chemical attack a statement that comes just a day after more than $400.00 u.s. lawmakers urged the trumpet ministration not to pull u.s. troops out of syria. and just. china is accusing the u.s. of economic bullying of its tech firms foreign minister wang he says u.s. sanctions on chinese companies such as weiwei aimed at hindering his country's
8:12 am
development ranks comments come despite washington's decision to temporarily ease restrictions on the chinese tech giant well those u.s. sanctions are already forcing companies around the world to review their links with qual way british from z. and vodafone are the latest to distance themselves from the company and the u.k. chip designer arm will suspend all ties with the chinese for sunnier gago reports. the british based chip designer a.r.m. whose products power process is from chip makers to companies such as apple has said that it was now a blocking war way from accessing its technology now the move comes after a u.s. government ban on the chinese firm a.r.m. employees have now been told to cease all active contracts as well as any pending engagements may comes after the u.s. put huawei in a list of companies that u.s. firms are banned from doing business with another reason because of
8:13 am
a arms decision is because some of its designs contain technology which originate in the united states and now as a result because of this it is one of the latest in a series of com of companies around the world that have partnerships with. with huawei that are now seeking to distance themselves from the chinese firm for example on wednesday to telecoms companies vodafone and the u.k.'s largest mobile operator have said that they are suspending the pre order of away 5 g. handsets now while way has reacted saying that it feels confident that it can resolve this decision it said that it is values very much as international partnerships but in a proper snipe involved the us itself it's said that it recognizes what it calls international pressure by from a politically motivated decisions that's according to our way but make no mistake this is quite
8:14 am
a serious blow to the chinese company because it really relies on a our ems technology uses it for its own chips so really quite a serious. delay on how it can continue to manage to produce those chips if it has no access at all to that technology can certainly writes for the technology publication while he joins us now via skype from portland oregon is this is china's foreign minister claims economic bullying against china. well it depends on whether you believe the whether you take the u.s. statements at face value or or not the u.s. is a national security concern they're worried that while a could help to judge china spy on u.s. citizens or spy on people from around the world depending on where the equipment is that the equipment is installed. but if you don't take that.
8:15 am
that seriously and assume that this is actually more about economics then you know maybe there's a case to be made for that so what are the implications for huawei one of the most innovative of tech companies in the world can it survive or at least continue to thrive well it can survive it it's going to depend on how long the restrictions are in place it can survive for some time the company has been stockpiling ships for at least a year so you know just end to submission of something like this happening it can also develop a lot of its own software as we're going to as an operating system that is even developed some of its own ships so it can definitely stave off disaster but not having any way to buy more chips once those stockpiles run out. that could end up being. a massive blow ready to the company especially outside of china and you alluded to the alluded to it at the beginning of a conversation how does qual way of a come the suspicion that it's somehow involved in an espionage is that it's not to
8:16 am
be trusted when it comes to involvement in asia technology infrastructure projects . right and it's a hard accusation to overcome if there isn't it's not really clear to me to right now what else could you know companies already opened up its proprietary code to the u.k. intelligence and i would do the same for the u.s. that if requested. but it's difficult to prove that that in an error or a security bug it was an accident as opposed to malice so it can be really difficult to detect to shake out whether. it ready has malicious intent or not and what are the the implications for west and tech companies who operate in china sell the goods that will use chinese labor and factories to build the products that
8:17 am
we in the rest of the world use well this can be seen as below for sure for companies like broadcom and qualcomm that make chips to sell to to sell to a long way and if china retaliates by cutting off manufacturing that would also be obviously a big blow ready to western companies we don't know exactly how far china will go to retaliate yet. but it's worth keeping in mind that one. issue that has persisted in the trade war issue is that what way or that well it doesn't really have to compete with western companies in china when it comes to telecommunications infrastructure so if china were willing to open that market up to western companies that actually might make you know they might be able to make some progress and in trade negotiations could really get to talk to me

especially at risk when crossing the border. we are very concerned we've always been very concerned about what happens in detention centers we believe that immigrants are being detained far too often when it's unnecessary and with children it's that much worse and children should not be detained at all because of the psychological damage but now we're seeing actual deaths in great numbers and so we are extremely concerned and are hoping that both congress and others in advocates are going to try and hold people accountable and get to the bottom of what's going on it's important for people to understand that many of the children in these detention centers are genuinely unaccompanied or not separated so that the question of the conditions in detention centers goes beyond just the separation of families but the separation of families is absolutely critical for people to understand that it's still going on china's 3 biggest airlines is
