5:08 am
our country there has never been a time when a person in charge of our air defense systems or an officer has committed such an error against a passenger plane in the country's capital and so close to the international airport munns them know how well sympathizing with all the dear families that were hit by this major tragedy i tell them that we will continue this path until discovering all the aspects of the incident and punishing those involved ronnie's also dealing with another problem 3 european countries have triggered a dispute process which could mean more sanctions britain france and germany say the iranians aren't complying with their commitment to the 2015 nuclear agreement to limit its nuclear development the european signatories of the deal have been pressured to abandon it since the united states withdrew in may of 2018 then re imposed sanctions to damage iran's oil dependent economy the europeans say triggering their dispute is not aimed at reimposing un sanctions game though these
5:09 am
make of these were used to resolve issues relating to the implementation of the agreement within defray were for the joint commission. i think it's has to be clear that it checked if it is there for to find solution and return to full compliance within differing work of these agreements. iran announced its latest step to cutting its commitment to the deal by lifting restrictions on uranium enrichment earlier this month the latest nuclear announcement won't do anything to ease the high tensions between iran and the united states following the u.s. assassination of the head of iran's quds force awesome saleman impact at 2 weeks ago iran has warned it will force all u.s. troops out of the middle east. at all costs iran's foreign ministry says it will have a firm and serious response to any destructive measures taken by the remaining signatories
5:10 am
of the deal iran finds itself yet again on the defensive trying to find a solution between the disputes that has with the remaining signatories of the j c p away because the alternative could have far reaching ramifications throughout the middle east. or such a party al-jazeera tower on. rockets being launched in their base in iraq housing us troops at least 2 katyusha rockets were fired. just north of baghdad there be no reports of any casualties meanwhile in syria the government is accusing israel of carrying out for air strikes on a major military airbase in homes syrian state t.v. says most of the missiles and drains had been downed by the enemy the reported missile attack schools limited damage to the base which has been attacked at least 4 times in recent years there was no immediate comment from israel. the us house of representatives says it will hand over the 2 articles of impeachment against president told trump to the senate on wednesday but there's
5:11 am
a 1st debate going on in the upper chambers so what should happen at the trial how do you call him has this from washington. house speaker nancy pelosi walks in to tell her members behind closed doors impeachment is moving forward and wednesday they will move it to the u.s. senate. that's where senator mitch mcconnell takes over he's made it clear he thinks the house didn't prove its case and he doesn't think the senate needs to ask any further questions the constitution gives the sole power of impeachment without the house majority wants to impeach a president the ball is in their court but they have to do the work to prove their case. nothing nothing in our history or are crossed into sion says a house majority can pass what amounts to a half baked censure resolution and then and says to the senate bill and the blocks
5:12 am
the constitution is actually pretty vague about how impeachment should play out but senate rules mean mcconnell may not actually have the final say 4 republican senators could demand to hear witnesses and the president's former national security advisor john bolton says he'll talk if the senate subpoenas him so democrats are lobbying republicans to join them in their demands to decide whether the president merits acquittal or removal from office the senate must conduct a fair trial a fair trial has witnesses a fair trial has relevant documents is a part of the record a fair trial seeks the truth no more no less the american people according to polls overwhelmingly support hearing from witnesses and seen the evidence that will put a lot more pressure on republican senators to buck their party and the president that said that with the trial expected to start on tuesday over the next 2 days what a handful of senators decide is fair will likely play
5:13 am
a big role in determining the president's fate to call him al jazeera washington. only said it's always great so of course one of mike hanna who isn't life was in washington d.c. we're hearing about new evidence coming to the fore what's it all about. well indeed yes well this is coming from an individual named live harness now he's a former associate of rudy giuliani the president's personal attorney he's facing campaign financing charges has been indicted on those now he got permission from a judge to release details from his telephone from all other sources which he has now provided to the house committees investigating in terms of the impeachment now according to the house committee this evidence contains a number of documents pertaining to rudy giuliani's efforts to get the ukrainian leaders to give dirt political dirt on the former vice president joe biden the
5:14 am
squid be president trump's political opponent in the presidential elections it is apparently a lot of material we're talking about hundreds of pages telephone calls e-mails all sorts of information which links rudy giuliani to the efforts to obtain information from ukraine authorities clearly very very important some of it is presumed to be classified but the whole point is is that the democrats in the house are insistent that this material goes over with the articles of impeachment to the senate to be heard during a proper trial is just more evidence that is going to add weight on those republican senators who hold the decision as to whether a full trial will be held with witnesses examining new evidence well mike thanks very much indeed let's take a closer look at that with jack kingston who's a former republican congressman from georgia joins us live from washington d.c.
5:15 am
i'm asking some welcome to the program you of course were a member of the an impeachment back in the ninety's what parallels can we draw do you think. well i think with any case you want to make sure that you have proven and i think the difference with the bill clinton is that there was an independent counsel kenneth starr and he had basically given the articles to the house to look at it was voted on 4 articles were passed all of them were bipartisan him not just bipartisan with the same democrats voting with the republicans and vice versa but there were actually different members of both parties switching as we went through the articles one by one in this case it's completely partisan nancy pelosi said back in the spring you can't have a partisan impeachment process because it just looks like politics well that's exactly what happened it was just politics in fact the only bipartisan vote was when democrats voted with republicans against these articles and against moving
5:16 am
forward so i think the house so-called trial was a total sham they had one fact witness and he actually said the president did not want anything there was no quid pro quos that was the one person who was on the phone call and who had direct knowledge of what went on all the other witnesses were on hearsay evidence only so the house absolutely rush things and now they have a very very poor case and they're frustrated that the senate is saying we just dismiss that all right well we all wear wear out and short of the way of making this impeachment nonpartisan is to make it a full trial with whatever witnesses you want to have available well i think we would like to hear 100 biden has to say i think there will adam schiff would be a witness because there's big questions on did he coordinate with the so-called whistle blower the whistle blowers or the dennehy has been kept under wraps i think
5:17 am
that he would be a good witness and i think when you go through the list there it will be a long drawn out process with all these witnesses but i think you think there will be what he said mcconnell said as. i think there's a chance that there will because there are members of the senate who are saying you know what let's hear from these people what what does 100 biden say why did better response pay him 60000 dollars a month well his. dad the vice president was in charge of the ukrainian policy i think people would want to know about that quid pro quo and of course people also want to know what the foreign national security advisor jumbo was would say because he was very much around at that time and he wants to speak should he be subpoenaed . you know what i think the witnesses that they want to hear from should be subpoenaed that is the process in the courts as you know there's one of the articles of the house that. the president would not cooperate will that
5:18 am
mechanism of subpoena and witnesses was available for the house and it will be available for the senate the thing about a john bolton type witness you really don't know what he's going to say so i think the democrats have nothing to lose if they bring him in any turns out to be very neutral or whatever but they possibly could gain some traction and what we've been hearing frankly since president clinton was elected in 2016 is that the democrats are going to impeach him and they always have some new thing it was 1st of course the mueller investigation that it was michael abba not a of all people and stormy daniels and they're just you know i guess graben one possibility after the next when it comes to trying to impeach the president and meanwhile we have turmoil in the middle east which all americans in the whole world should be concerned about and it would be really good if the democrats could unite
5:19 am
with the republicans and the world and try to help sort things out for the better in iran of course is a whole raft of opinion on the other side but jack kingston we appreciate your perspective thanks very much thank you dick. well former u.s. national security advisor michael flynn is seeking to withdraw his guilty plea for lying to the f.b.i. is attorneys say it's because government prosecutors broke this side of the plea agreement pleaded guilty in 2017 for lying about his contacts with russia's ambassador to the united states during the special counsel investigation into russian interference he's also asking to postpone his sentencing which is set for the end all january. but it will head on the news including the u.s. and china set to ease their own going trade war but there are questions over what's been agreed and what disputes remain unresolved. i mean some of it be said that i thought be nothing nothing with. that big hit in case you know or it.
5:20 am
had a new man in charge of the spanish football champions bottom line against peter will have all the details. all right scientists a total evacuation of nearly a 1000000 people living close to an erupting volcano in the philippines tens of thousands have already fled. and love us started spewing from tall dark and on sunday as you can reports tremors have been felt elsewhere and back in just province. hardly any civilian is allowed to enter the town difficult now. and it is clear why. live. i.
5:21 am
eat. you say there's just a massive earthquake and the police officers have to leave on their station we were just here a few moments ago hoping to embed with them but now we really really have to. think are we going to find. officials are calling this area ground 0. a good seal here is just around 10 kilometers away from the to al qaeda that erupted on sunday spewing ash just a lava. we've been told that water in this lake has gone up by a meter raising fears that it might spill over its banks hampering efforts to help
5:22 am
those in need. here's another going to use a hosts like the situation is so well at this it is hard for us even the secure our own men this is why we don't allow most to billions stay right there in violent explosions like these haven't been seen here in decades and experts warn there could be more more than 20000 people have been displaced moved to at least 100 evacuation sites and it's not clear when they might return but some have decided to stay let them indoors a clan during the day they look after their cattle and whatever's left of their homes and that night they go back to the evacuation site. knowing our report don't of course but we also look after our the new mines and do our best to save the 6 first time when i'm in the i never thought it would lead to see disdain it is a really scary and we are afraid just a few days ago
5:23 am
a good seal was a thriving agricultural town now people here say it's to see if their lives have been put on hold and they're full of a good knee and the stress jamelle a dog an al-jazeera a good c.e.o. but then this province northern philippines or let's cross straightaway to across want to rob a bride who's live in back and we can see the great plume of smoke behind you there rob some extraordinary sight very threatening to you isn't it. absolutely nic we're very much in the phase of waiting and seeing what this volcano does next we've been watching the past few hours and it does vary the amount of stuff that's coming out of this volcano at times there will be a lot of steam a lot of gas a lot of ash and then it will suddenly decrease almost stuff and then suddenly another billowing cloud once more it's certainly less than the kind of
5:24 am
a huge columns that we saw coming out when it 1st erupted on sunday but it is certainly worrying we are still at this level 4 on a scale of $1.00 to $5.00 which means that an eruption a major eruption could be imminent that could come in a matter of days or a matter of hours or as some of the experts will tell you from 5th box this is the vulcanology agency of the philippines it could stay at this level for a matter of weeks and then simply quieting down again who knows it's one of the 100 s. but also what are some things about volcanoes that with an active volcano you cannot tell what it's going to do exactly despite all the science that you apply to it from one day to the next but what does concern people around here and we've felt it too are these continuing tremors many earthquakes that have been several 100 since sunday some of them you don't feel are told you of just told that they have taken place there measured it seismograph is and so on but what you do feel are some of the bigger ones and we felt them during the night here. to number 3 or possibly 4
5:25 am
on the richter scale these bigger shakes which do make you realize that there is still a lot of stuff happening just under this lake behind us and who knows what this magma which is does seem to be rising is going to do next and rob what's it like there what's the what's the sense among the people one of fear i imagine one of war as well. it is many people here number of people have left as you've said some tens of thousands have left there in evacuation shelters many poor people have stayed to this risk area is set at 14 kilometers in a radius around this volcano that's a total of up to around a 1000000 people now a 1000000 people are not going to leave here many people are staying but it has meant a big impact on this whole area this is an area of natural beauty because of course this lake occupies what used to be the crater of a much bigger very ancient volcano and we're effectively on the crater's edge of
5:26 am
that and all around here you have a lot of resort hotels apartments condominiums a lot of those are now deserted it's also had a big impact on a lot of the local business here on the fisheries there officially farms in this lake and also a lot of agriculture sadly all of the ash and dust which is come out of this volcano is now covering many of the fields and plantations of people who rely on them for a living. the threat is not just just the ash and the resulting actual explosion of the volcano itself but also potential for tsunamis. that is another consideration here one of the problems with this volcano people talk about this nature volcano is on a very big one but it's partly more dangerous because it is so low lying and it's so close to the proximity of this water when now when you have you get water involved with volcanoes you get a whole a different bunch of risks tsunami is one of them the danger that they could be
5:27 am
a tsunami so a lot of the people who have been evacuated have gone from the water side here but also when when you get any flows of lava coming into contact with water you instantly get these massive explosions of steam which then makes the whole thing far more explosive you get far more bigger plumes being created fine ash that goes higher into the atmosphere that could be taken further away which makes the whole thing far more dynamic and potentially more dangerous are over leave it there for the time being and back with you as things develop thanks a lot she writes what she has released a scathing report condemning the chinese government which it says poses an existential threat to the international human rights system the organization details crackdowns on protesters in hong kong and muslims in china and says world leaders risk pushing the country towards a dystopian future if they fail to challenge its actions and its base reports from the united nations. every year human rights watch produces an annual report
5:28 am
telling the most oppressive places on earth this is not web this year's report was supposed to be launched with a focus this year on china they planned to be in hong kong but the head of the organization ken roth was bought and. arrived here. before this time for the 1st time they blocked me instead he flew to the u.n. in new york where he gave details of china's repression that perhaps the authorities that didn't want the world to hear it goes beyond violence against protesters in hong kong and the detention camps in shin jang this is the most severe period of oppression that we've seen in decades in china probably going back to one of the cultural revolution or an era like that. changing is the 1st where
5:29 am
you know a 1000000 or more leader in turkey muslims are in detention for forced indoctrination basically to pressure them to renounce islam and and their cultural traditions and even their language. at the end of the news conference a chinese diplomat who'd been sitting at the back of the room came to the front to condemn human rights watch the report is full prejudices and fabrications and he can or the facts facto information provided by my comment repeatedly for all these years it all raises the question is the international community speaking out enough i asked the spokes person for the un secretary general about the decision to bar mr roth from entering hong kong as a matter of principle we support the right and the work of human rights defenders throughout the world it's comments like that that human rights watch say need to be much tougher they say the united nations and the entire international community must announce failings on human rights by china and others they say it's one of the

few ways to change behavior james 0 at the united nations a prominent cambodian opposition politician is standing trial on treason charges himself was arrested in 2017 now he's accused of collaborating with the united states to overthrow the government of long time ruler so close opposition party was banned ahead of the 2018 election as it began to win more support from cambodians longtime prime minister who has been facing increasing international pressure over his crackdown on the opposition. he is joining us live from florence and lots of domestic and international interest in this trial what we expect to happen. that's right now the thinking is and more to. cambodia as you mentioned can soak up with the rest of the 2017 that was just a year before cambodia was due to hold its national election and then his party

5:32 am
review whether to continue preferential trade treatment for cambodia cambodia at the moment enjoys free access to european union markets but it has to comply with international human rights standards and that suit to be reviewed now and that the european union is watching this case very closely and it's saying that it may potentially bend the strait agreement if the political and human rights record in cambodia does not improve. performance really with the. still ahead here on al-jazeera find out why are you the most codependent country in the european union struggling to move towards a greener future. and pushing it to the edge the drivers on the dakar rally get set to the final stages peter isley action.

worth of american farm goods but the chinese government says it won't raise its quotas on grain imports to meet u.s. demands beijing is reluctant to divert trade from europe and south america and has so far remained silent on how far it's prepared to commit itself by signing this agreement they jane is treading a fine line between preserving relations with washington and not wanting to appear weak china's leaders say this is an opportunity to set aside tensions the u.s. but now focused on the slowing economy and toppling obviously and officials here expect more far reaching great hopes to last it's. a phase 2 deal has been planned but there are other sticking points including beijing's plan to dominate global high tech industries under its made in china 2025 initiative growing anti china sentiment ahead of the elections in the u.s. may also influence any upcoming negotiations we also took the toughest ever actually get straight up i 00. we just received

a breakthrough it's just really hard to predict the next move. on but one thing we can be certain is that odd a trade relation will get worse over time since the competition began to contras or will persist. for now many chinese manufacturer is probably feeling relieved over the deal may not be a long term solution it does deliver enough for some optimism. al-jazeera aging. u.s. house democrat jim mcgovern has pledged to bring up the case of jail down to 0 john this moment to say to the child administration insane has been detained in egypt without any formal charges for more than 1000 days egyptian journalist was based and before he was arrested in december 2016 on a trip to visit his family mcgovern is also urging the u.s. to consider withholding military aid to egypt over the human rights violations and school came a day after gyptian american citizen mr died in an egyptian jail where he'd been
