trumpets to iowa iowa where the 1st votes of campaign 2020 will be cast in just a few days' time. and nowhere to go 700000 syrians are reportedly heading to the turkish border as astronauts intensify in the last troubled held province. welcome to the news of the world health organization has declared the coronavirus a global health emergency the response to treat disease has now killed more than 200 people in china exceeded 9 and a half 1000 confirmed cases infections and spread to 18 other countries the w.h.o. says it's concerned about the virus spreading to countries that are ill prepared to deal with the outbreak charlie angela begins our coverage. declaring an
5:02 am
international public health emergency is rare but with the corona virus spreading globally the world health organization says it warrants a coordinated international response i'm declaring a public close emergency of international concern. over the global outbreak of normal call a number of voters the main reason for this declaration is not because of what is happening in china but because of what is happening in other countries greatest concern is the potential for the virus to spread to countries with weaker systems. which are ill prepared to deal with it. countries like india one of the latest report cases is the respect to disease until now individual nations have made their own decision in response to the outbreak in italy more than $6000.00 tourists were under locked out aboard
5:03 am
a cruise ship near rome after 2 chinese passengers displayed flu like symptoms the couple were put into isolation in till the test results came back negative for corona virus. meanwhile evacuations of foreign nationals from we continue turkey sent a military cargo plane to bring back $35.00 turkish and 10 azerbaijani citizens and their families all including the crew will now be put under quarantine for 14 days the e.u. is bringing back another 350 europeans on a flight into portugal and 150 british nationals will touch down in the u.k. on friday this as a number of commercial airline suspended flights to china a decision the w.h.o. is now asking them to revise why did you take this decision why what is the science supporting this decision could you reconsider this decision. and
5:04 am
we suggested to w.h.o. that w 2 should inform the world about transparency concerning these measures which should not constitute an example to follow but the decision to reconsider for china the w.h.o. only had praise for their efforts to contain the virus but it is still spreading fast the message what will protect us is not in a version but solidarity and cooperation charlie angela al-jazeera but we have team coverage on the coronavirus brake cable is on there is in washington d.c. bryant is outside a temporary quarantine center in a sun south korea but 1st let's talk to scott haidar he joins us now from the chinese capital beijing and scott let's just begin with the very latest figures coming out of china and they continue to make for grim reading.
5:05 am
they do yes and that is a big concern here and one thing that you need to look at when we heard this w.h.o. statement is there is concern they say about this virus spreading it they said the main reason they made that decision to clarify classify it as an emergency is because of what's happening most like mostly outside of china and particularly when it comes to possibly spreading into nations who don't have the best of health care systems that's the big concern the w.h.o. said and one thing that's interesting about that is that you know you look at china's health care system you know it's it's pretty good overall but what is interesting about the situation here in china is they're able to do things probably like any other nation they're going to they're building a hospital right now in 6 days just for the coronavirus they're building another one they're opening another one they've broken ground i just outside beijing to build another one as well so unlike any other country i think that might have taxed health care systems at least here in china because of the uniqueness of this nation
5:06 am
they can build hospitals in a few days they can lock down millions and millions of people that might be more difficult in other nations so that when you look at the situation here in china it's unique compared to other nations and that's what it sounds like the w.h.o. is worried about and declaring this emergency is that some other nations might have more difficulty or can't do the things that china is doing now to contain this virus. in china at the moment is. to me what seems to be the situation turns talked about the lockdown in the way that people are being allowed to move considering sort of the new year holiday is still you might say being extended. yes the holiday has been extended was supposed to end on thursday today was supposed to be i guess kind of business as usual if you would after this holiday period that clearly has been delayed at least until sunday it'll be interesting to see what happens monday morning because we're hearing a lot of provinces and a lot of municipalities saying stay home don't come back to work yet until maybe
5:07 am
february 10th that's another week after this delayed already holiday period well you know we've spoken to a couple of people in one hand and it's interesting the you know they say that there are still food available on the streets obviously very dead they're getting a little bit bored if you will and concern because they're all bunkered in their houses but they do say that there are supplies of food and water that's not the concern the big concern for those organizing this response of the coronavirus are medical supplies that seems to be the biggest concern in move on and in the province is because of the lack of medical supplies mainly because of the need and also because a lot of these factories that produce this material have been shut for the new lunar new year holiday we know now that some of them have restarted early because of the great need down in mohan well for the middle school thanks to the updates of course we'll follow events was you through the day let's cross over to rob bryant who live for us from a son in south korea rob. mentioned sort of health facilities all being all the
5:08 am
focus at the moment of how to deal with the corona virus what's happening where you all. that's right away or this city just outside the city of a sand it's a couple of hours' drive south of the capital seoul and it's one of 2 makeshift quarantine centers that have been set up by the south korean government this is actually a police training facility and there's another facility in a neighboring town close by and these will be taking the people of the south korean citizens who are being brought out of and who is said that they want to come out there is an estimated to be just over 700 people and the 1st flight has arrived this friday morning bringing 368 south korean citizens from landing at gimpo airport in seoul they were screened on the way out. and they were certainly screened when they arrived here in south korea we just learned in the fact just as
5:09 am
we went on air that 14 of those people on board that flight were found to have feverish symptoms some of them have been taken off to hospital and we are expecting in the coming hours the rest will be coming to this center in the neighboring center where they will be basically starting 2 weeks of quarantine this center was chosen because everybody can have an individual room they will be allowed to keep their mobile device but will have no visitors food will be brought into them and obviously their health will be monitored on a daily basis to make sure there are no symptoms of the corona virus and it was also chosen because it's a fairly secluded place but the local residents here i can tell you are not happy there have been protests here there's a small protest still going on just down the road in the past couple of days they've even blocked the road here with bulldozers with tractors trying not to let people in that's despite we assurances from the government that this is being perfectly safe but it does give you a sense of the kind of fear and uncertainty that has been created by this
5:10 am
coronavirus rob thanks so much joining us from south korea let's cross over to the u.s. in washington d.c. where gabriel is. and there is and as you just heard from rob fear suspicion and real concern there in south korea maybe not those feelings in the united states but certainly a lot of movement and traction when it comes to trying to contain the coronavirus where you are. there sure is and i think there is definitely signs of very much increased worry thursday night we've just gotten word that the state department has now up to the travel warning to china to a level 4 which is the highest level what does that mean quite frankly the u.s. government is telling its citizens very simply do not travel anywhere to china it's very rare that the state department would issue such a high level warning that just came in on thursday night they usually reserve this
5:11 am
for countries that are at war or perhaps a country that's in the middle of an aftermath of a very severe natural disaster so now level 4 a travel advisory for americans to china u.s. government saying do not travel to any part of china right now this all comes as on thursday that the 1st case of human to human. virus of the corona virus was confirmed in the state of illinois it was a husband and wife in their sixty's the wife traveled to china came back had had a coronavirus apparently gave it to her husband he was checked in the hospital went through exams and his tests came back positive that's the 1st case of human to human transmission of this in the united states over all that brings the total number of people in the u.s. to 6 still relatively small nevertheless it is it appears to be growing
5:12 am
also united states major airlines both all american airlines delta and united the 3 major carriers of the u.s. have all cut back their flights to china by hundreds of flights united being the biggest carrier that has the most amount of daily flights from the u.s. to various cities in china and hong kong have cut back on hundreds of flights they go with they had about 20. they cut it to 12 a day and now less than 4 a day this all comes as well as pilots for american airlines the union for the pilots have filed a lawsuit with the airline saying that they do not want to fly to china at all either now in far as terms of president donald trump he tweeted earlier on thursday that everything seems to be in his words under control so from the white house perspective they're remaining fairly call him about this but clearly the united
5:13 am
states is worried given that they've now given it a level for travel advisory warning americans not to travel anywhere to china well for that update to gabriel thanks for joining us from washington d.c. well plenty more ahead here on the al-jazeera news are included in the united nations we've talked to both the u.s. and palestinian ambassadors about the trumpet administration's middle east plan. also don't want to distinction how a small town by double trouble is the conflict palestine is pushing against his plan. and the joke of it cruises into the australian tennis open final he took all the sports section later in the news of. the country prosecutors have been trading barbs with the u.s. president's defense team in the 2nd day of questions
5:14 am
a double impeachment trial his lawyers arguing that whatever the president does to boost his reelection prospects sits in the public interest full not impeachable democrats say that they're trying to normalize lawlessness 100 year constables not from washington d.c. . democrats outraged by the recent argument made by trump's lawyers that the president seeking foreign help to win reelection is in the public's interest say he may as well be coronated king with mitch mcconnell holding the crown and the republicans holding his train this is war on dead wrong and you don't need to be a constitutional scholar to understand that what we have seen over the last couple days is a descent into constitutional madness senators serving as jurors in trump's impeachment trial submitted their final questions thursday read aloud by supreme court chief justice john roberts but he declined a question submitted by republican senator rand paul the presiding officer declines
5:15 am
to read the question as submitted because it reportedly named the whistleblower whose report kicked off trump's impeachment republicans accuse the whistleblower of being a democratic operative helping the party oust trump that is the most massive alexion interference we've ever witnessed its domestic election interference the democrats say republicans who are the senate majority are playing with fire if they blindly support a president who has clouded constitutional norms democrats say at the very least senator should seek to hear all available evidence it is certainly in their interest and the president's interest that we have a fair trial a trial without truth without evidence without witnesses in documents would render the president's acquittal meaningless. democrats want to call former national security adviser john bolton to testify the white house is trying to stop him from
5:16 am
publishing his upcoming book that reportedly bolsters the case trump abused his power now all eyes are on the moderate republican senators who will be the swing vote on whether to call witnesses or to immediately end the trial what trumps all but certain acquittal how do you know castro al-jazeera washington. we will trump has been running supporters and i were accusing the democrats of trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election event comes ahead of the state caucuses on monday when democrats begin the months long process to choose they can do that for them but the presidential vote of me. you know we're having probably the best years that we've ever had in the history of our country and i just got it can you believe these i gather. their pizza shop the best trade deals the strongest military to cure the vets we got julius we got accountability for the
5:17 am
it's accountability we got all these things and they impeach the president now the 2nd we're watching just what. they want another 5 year ballot poison our democracy i don't throw the tire system of government that's not happening i can tell you. all official joins me now from des moines iowa and it seems that the president really is all the mission to get his point across the aisle and. yeah he's been speaking for just about an hour no interestingly enough as you join as he's talking about how he came up with the idea 4 years ago a veterans choice that was actually a bill that was signed into law by the previous president barack obama the people here are locking up exactly everything he's got to say when it comes to impeachment he didn't spend
5:18 am
a great deal of time on it called the usual things that so and so which he criticized that i'm sure he said the 2 senators from iowa both of whom are republicans didn't come here tonight because he wanted them in washington because of course they're part of the jury trying donald trump i've been speaking to the people here no one believes that donald trump has done anything that rises to the level of impeachment they see is a way of trying to overturn the previous election trying to keep him off the ballot for 2020 he course going to be in the caucus the republican caucus also being held on monday night he's going to when because let me tell you can you name the 2 other republicans are standing against him no most people here probably couldn't either he has the bully pulpit he of course has the benefit of incumbency of being the president so he's going to win that quite significantly and people here believe that that is just going to be the 1st step in regaining the presidency and
5:19 am
rekindling the white house how important are the caucuses on monday you talk about the republican side but for the democrats it really is quite a fight. yeah vote for the democrats in that really horrible phrase sets the table for the upcoming elections people go into the next contests with a bit of momentum if they do well here normally if you finish outside the top 3 you simply won't be the nominee that has been the tradition since the caucuses began so everyone's jockeying for position to try and get into the top 3 at the moment the standings are joe biden and bernie sanders roughly neck and neck elizabeth warren taking up 3rd place there's always a surprise in iowa could be judged doing well could it be him a club a show who has risen and every single pull up to this point over the last 2 weeks so that could be something that we see are suddenly getting momentum and finishing
5:20 am
4th which gives her the chance to take that momentum into new hampshire a week from no all of those things start to build up but interestingly just in the last couple of hours before the new poll from the new york times and it suggests that donald trump against any. excuse me obviously we're showed here because of the noise in the hall if you put donald trump up against any of the leading democrats according to this poll from the new york times donald trump beats them all and not over something that he couldn't help but mention something that says indicates that he is going to win the presidency when the election in november because people are pleased with what he's doing for american pleased what he's doing with the economy and talk very much about the deal that he signed recently with canada and mexico saying that that's great for the farmers in iowa and great for families here that's the message he is going to hammer home over the next 9 months will be interesting
5:21 am
to hear what else he has to save his evening thanks for the update alan fischer there in des moines. joining me now is chris garcia former u.s. commerce department official joins me now from washington d.c. good to have you with us and we serve. we certainly heard lots of cheers for the president in iowa and he touched upon the impeachment trial in washington d.c. where where you are in your opinion where does this. trial actually sit at the moment have the democrats managed to prove their case the republicans managed to rebuff the charges right so let's take a look at this maybe from 2 lenses thank you for having me on tonight the 1st lens of course is the actual substance in a 2nd lens would be the process let's take a look at the process i think that the house democrats have failed to prove their case namely firstly because it's been a completely partisan impeachment i think your viewers should know that this is the 1st time a president has been impeached strictly on party lines this is not been
5:22 am
a bipartisan impeachment at all in fact we had one congressman congressman ben drew who was a democrat voted against impeachment and switched his party to republican because of the one sidedness the process was completely unconventional the house intelligence committee which held the secret hearings in the basement of the capitol without any public eye on these on these secret intelligence committee hearings that the committee does not have jurisdiction over over and even if the house judiciary committee and it is during that process that you have impeachment witnesses called and evidence presented the senate merely has to vote on the existing evidence they will do that. do you believe that the facts that have been presented in the here and now and will exonerate the president yes or no and if not why. yes so that's exactly the 2nd point is is the substance certainly all of the evidence that has been presented thus far exonerates the
5:23 am
president and this is why we have the transcript with president trump between president trump and ukrainian president the linsky where there is clearly no quid pro quo which was the the buzzword if you recall during the house democrats. initial investigation that there was a quid pro quo but we saw that the transcript had no quid pro quo there was no pressure on the president of ukraine he vocalise came out and said that on a number of occasions in fact that the aid was released in the same fiscal year that it was appropriated without any conditions and again the substance of it is that every any president of the united states is fully within his right to conduct a full foreign policy which includes withholding aid if there are in fact is a suspicion for corruption and if in fact if there was a condition placed on the a the president would be fully within his rights that is the that is the right of the of the president in our constitution but of course that you know it is your opinion of course with that so do you think then that that has been some suggest
5:24 am
abuse of powell or an obstruction of coal and that perhaps you think that neither of these all crimes to be impeached appalled. well if you think about it if if there was a if let's go back to how this all started the president was looking into probably allegations of corruption from former vice president joe biden and some possible election interference that had to have perhaps taken place allegedly at the hands of the ukrainian government or ukraine operatives for president the united states to enquire and to investigate that is fully within his rights there is no impeachable offense with the obstruction of congress charge nor has there been a busa of power. that is an impeachable offense that is not constitutional at all but hypothetically if you would if you were to be investigated or you had committed a crime and in the future declared for office that does not immune you that is not make you immune from any future investigation by your government so if that were
5:25 am
the case any american could commit any crimes that they wanted and then in the future declare for political candidacy and be exempt from any potential investigation because it would be a political investigation against someone's. rival so that it simply does not make any sense at all i think that we have to again remember what the basis of this was so hell and looking forward this is a constitutional republic not a banana republic when the 1st settlers came here from james to jamestown we set up a constitutional republic it's rule by the people and what house democrats unfortunately are doing now in this distraction is that they are they are they are they are taking the the will of the people away well if they see it that sort of opinion then i want to ask you know hypothetically now as we go ahead full where there's a vote on friday whichever way the vote goes how much of this story about the impeachment is going to run an impact on people's opinions as we head towards the presidential election in. just in general terms you know into the conversation be
5:26 am
having with associates whether they are republican or old democrat. so certainly that's a great question i think if we take a look at just the the evidence the polling again we saw that the support for impeachment was very strong at the beginning once the facts started to come out we saw those numbers drop and so i think that house democrats unfortunately are going to be on the wrong side of history and president trump's approval numbers are going to continue to rise i think that's something that house democrats understand i think that that's particularly why they rushed it through and i think republicans know now that this is essentially going to guarantee the president's reelection come november but that's a great thing for america because we've had unprecedented success during the 1st 4 years of president trump and we're going to have continued success if he's reelected such as the $7000000.00 jobs he's created and all of the all time lows for hispanic unemployment african-american unemployment the manufacturing jobs he's
5:27 am
come at a comeback the 2 major trade deals with the u.s. mexico and canada as well as the phase one of trade and a variety of ways that that we are now prospering and it's really a model for the rest of the world we want to make sure that the world knows that there is a there is a pathway to. prosperity and it's and success and that and that is only attainable when you put power in the hands of the people and not in the few political elites as it had been in so many years past year in the united states well so i think we're very much looking forward to another 4 more years but i'm happy to answer this question i think we don't have enough time with chris but it's been good to get your insight certainly and that was that you know where you start and said not all defense but at least one side of it and we look forward to seeing what happens . friday. one way or the other what happens at the day of friday thanks very much for your time you bet so hell yes.
5:28 am

5:35 am
ambassador kelly craft is not briefed her colleagues but she did come to speak to reporters outside the chamber in the days to come that will be able to work with the countries that were very positive and hopefully have more dialogue and i'm open to conversation with mandatory what is there in this deal for the palestinians to like doesn't this just reward 'd israel for illegally taking palestinian land over many decades you know i think i think what you say is a dialogue that has become normal and we need to move away from that dialogue because it's not normal and we need to focus on the palestinians the children the future of a palestinian state she says she's prepared to discuss the plan with the palestinian ambassador to the u.n. but he made it clear to me it's a meeting he won't be taking there is not a single palestinian official will meet with american officials now after this subnet it. earthquake the essence of it the destruction over the national over the palestinian people that is the palestinians
5:36 am
and the united nations no israel may declare its sovereignty over settlements in the west bank sooner rather than later secretary-general what's your message to israel on possibly an ex in the settlements. it's very clear statement is very clear on that he didn't answer so i put the question to his spokes person for our position. last week last month last year and today remains the same is that according to security council resolution $2334.00. israeli settlement activities are flagrant violations under international law i mean that's that's been our position the focus now will be on palestinian diplomatic outreach at the weekend president mahmoud abbas will attend an emergency meeting of the arab league in karo just over a week later he'll be at the african union. and then on for the 11th he'll attend
5:37 am
a meeting here of the u.n. security council james pays out of the united nations or president trump as. in the occupied west bank as a potential capital for a palestinian state in his proposed middle east plan but. explains residents there say they don't want the distinction nothing much surprises in iran what rod anymore the 62 year old palestinian spends a lot of time in his garden trying to enjoy life but politics constantly intrudes his hometown is once again in the headlines and emraan can't make sense of it. with all my respect to our bodies and as a son of lebanese it's not qualified to be the capital and it doesn't even have qualifications to become a city it's needs a lot of things 1st of all it's surrounded by the wall from many directions the possibility to expand and to become developed is very difficult this small town is
5:38 am
getting a lot of attention now because of u.s. president donald trump's proposed middle east peace plan where it was suggested as a potential capital of a palestinian state. on a nearly empty street younger residents of up with these gathered looking for something fun to do i asked 1000 year old now that hamish what he thinks about mr trump's proposal it's impossible to have a capital because jerusalem remains the capital in our hearts all that they said was in one paper and it's not useful it's worthless. pieces close to jerusalem's old city residents say it feels further and further away israel's separation wall blocks most of the view but from some vantage points you can still see the aqsa mosque compound. the idea of having a play a larger and more significant role in palestinian politics is not a new one this structure behind me was for a time in the mid 1990 s. intended to how was the palestinian parliament but the building was never finished
5:39 am
many palestinians felt completing its construction would indicate that i would these had in fact been selected as a future capital of a palestinian state something they did not want to happen and something all the residents we spoke with still don't want to see become a reality and last but not a capital is to resell them and we don't accept any other option no matter what they sail what they do history shows that people's rights will be returned to them resolve running deep through a palestinian town that's not seeking the spotlight even though it's been thrust into it. in the occupied west bank. the u.s. special envoy for syria says at least $200.00 strong the last rebel held province in the last 3 days and estimated $700000.00 people in it lebanon are fleeing towards the turkish border at least 21 civilians have been killed in government strikes backed by russia in recent days the tory reports. this is what's left of al
