back down alexei o'brian al jazeera. and as you mentioned the u.n. security council failed to reach a joint position on sudan in a closed door meeting more on that now from our diplomatic editor james bays. the security council was briefed behind closed doors on the latest developments in khartoum by the secretary general special adviser almost situation in sudan nicholas hastened i'm very concerned about the situation in khartoum and i think that represents a position of the international community i don't want to engage to mention a discussion as to who should do what because we're still hoping to play a role in bringing the parties together we haven't given up hope that a solution is still possible you can just. as soon as i can mr hasten told reporters he'd like to see a common international position on the situation in the sudan but the security
6:05 am
council couldn't come up with that they couldn't come up with a statement on the killing of protesters by the military i'm told that china adamantly refused the draft statement saying it was an internal matter they were backed in that by russia and kuwait said the draft needed amendments so instead the ambassadors from the european countries gave their own statement we call for an immediate secession of violence accountability for crimes committed and underlined the responsibility of the transitional military council in ensuring the safety of the sudanese do you need announcement to see snickers he sends a point that government and for elections to short period of time is of great concern those are the words i think european ambassadors would have liked to have

business end of this state visit donald trump was most at home around a table talking deals. besides the glamour of a state visit the lavish attention of royalty great britain wants a valued and strategic partner is to this president it seems a deal waiting to be done. al-jazeera london well it was a major concern in the u.k. of a trump's comments about the nation's public health service being up for negotiation in any future trade deal but just hours later he appeared to step back from those comments i don't see it being on the table somebody asked me a question today and i say everything's up for negotiation because everything is but i don't see that being that's something that i would not consider part of trade that's not trade or several 1000 demonstrators marched through central london in protest against the u.s. president's visit but turnout was below expectations prompting trump to snow said

6:11 am
asked by journalists about the protests outside president trump claimed to have seen only cheering supporters as the demonstration he said was a small protest in the media attention obvious fake news i don't see any protests i did see a small protest today when i came very small so a lot of it is fake news i hate to say but you saw the the people waving the american flag waving your flag it was tremendous spirit and love for the most part the public is being kept well back from the president and his own but if president trump was really oblivious to the chorus of booing his motorcade left downing street it can only have been because of the remarkable sound proofing of his official limousine. brennan al-jazeera central london. spent 2 years in saudi arabia the u.a.e. egypt and bahrain initiated a blockade planning doha was a supporter of terrorism it's a claim that kept on how strongly refuted the crisis affected many areas and created further instability in the region the reports. a handshake between saudi
