for the escalating tensions and has accused the trumpet ministration of stirring up trouble and anti china sentiment around the world they've waited 2 days to do this they're trying to appear very measured and they've also extended a number all branches of the last few days indicating that they were for talks rather than this kind of unilateral action remember they're doing this because they need to look like they are willing to defend themselves on the other side of the globe a group of men reportedly federal agents forced open a back door of the chinese consulate in houston workers left the building on friday after appearing to been documents earlier in the week there victualling ordered by american officials who say the consulate was a hub of chinese espionage and accusation beijing denies china ripped off our rice intellectual property and trey zwicker is causing millions of jobs all across
america for washington the list of issues is long the u.s. has arrested for chinese scientists accusing them of working secretly for the chinese military. special trade status with the u.s. has been revoked after china imposed a new security rule and washington has imposed sanctions on chinese officials over the alleged persecution of ethnic muslims as the coronavirus president trump has increasingly pointed to china as being responsible a tactic seen as shifting blame away from what critics say has been his own failed response to the pandemic and finally while way the chinese telecoms giant accused of posing security threats now banned in the u.s. and person. we are slipping it appears into a new cold war and it's this strange combination that we have right now in our american politics which is a domestic political pressure combined with longstanding grievances and concerns
between the united states and china once the u.s. consulate here in town to close is there will be 4 main on china's mainland but beijing says it won't hesitate to shutdown another should washington to retaliate against chinese missions in the u.s. between e.u. al-jazeera. let's go live now to the u.s. i was there was at a gala is live for us in miami and he wants the latest on the consulate close here in houston and to what extent we have to look at this move by the u.s. in the context of november election. yeah well pretty dramatic scenes in diplomatic terms on friday in texas as that deadline approached there were several viands seeing leaving that facility earlier in the week staff from the consulate was seeing reportedly burning documents and dumping more shredded documents in bins outside 40 minutes after that deadline expired state department officials. broke
into that building to take it over of course the wider issue here is that breakdown in diplomatic relations between china and u.s. perhaps reaching the lowest point since the late seventy's when diplomatic relations were restored and now might pompei or the secretary of state made a wide ranging speech at the nixon library earlier this week and that was really a window into the trumpet ministrations of procida wall days he frames this as a bottle of ideologies between the chinese communist party in the free democracies of the world there were many hints in that speech that other freedom loving nations should join america and persecuting the chinese also making it clear that any claims the chinese have in the south china sea are not valid and in fact the u.s. has deployed 2 cruise ships to that region a pretty rare move in this case but as for the presidential election i think this will play a pretty big role coming into november's presidential election it's one of the woods that president donald trump likes to say over and over again at china of
course he's blamed the pandemic on the chinese calling it the chinese flu so that will factor in to this november's presidential election i think but i think for people in the business community in the united states there are a great deal of concerns because it isn't that the moves the trumpet ministration are making are wrong it's do they have the diplomacy to try and fix it so going forward with it we're heading into pretty uncertain times between these 2 countries as this test for tat continues out 0 as i began to go live in miami and the many thanks. nearly 40 countries have reported record daily numbers of corona virus infections in the past week a strain belgium and israel are among nations seeing what they fear is a 2nd wave unprecedented dany increases were seen in 37 countries that's up from 20 last week and 13 the week before the us has confirmed the highest number of cases more than 4000000 infections now and 145000 deaths nightclubs
discos and event holes are being closed down to get it past a load up of elsewhere across the spanish region of catalonia a bit more than 280 new outbreaks of covert 19 across the country with infections tripling in the past 2 weeks the world health organization says that europe needs to better coordinate its response. we're really trying to get here is moved from as i said before using a very big hammer to trying to be more precise and what we're doing instead of restricting everyone we try and go after the virus and we try and identify where the virus is and then specifically and surgically in a sense excised the virus from the community by minimizing the impact on the lives and livelihoods of the community by focusing in on cases and contacts and investigation so countries coming out of lockdown even countries with lower levels of disease will experience potential cases and clusters of disease i'm sure
a sunny day go in london says the outbreaks are beginning to restrict freedom of movement between spain and other european nations. we even had belgium banning. travelers from going belgian travelers from going to westgate out i go on and yea there the city that was primarily the 1st eruption of the of of the reemergence of cove it in the region alongside with that you have norway also now imposing a 10 day quarantine on people who have traveled back from spain and also france now urging people not to travel there and has requested the spanish government to try drastically reduce the amount of traffic going between its orders course france there are many tourists from france who do travel to spain and with also a slightly rising uptick in cases in france there as well the worry is of course that they're going to be more brutal waves of code that could follow if it's not
contained and if it's not really kept down with that in mind of course that the it's the summer season in spain and really the lockdowns have come down people have resumed practically normal activities there in terms of socialising one of the major causes of concern is what is the way in which people have done the informal sort of parties and gatherings that are allowed there where mainly young people sort of gather with drinks that they bought and congregate there and that's also sort of a cause of consent trying to clamp down on that brazil's president says that he's recovered from covert dive team after testing negative for the virus dryer ball so narrow has consistently downplayed the pandemic and dismissed coronavirus as a little shrew brazil has the world's 2nd worst outbreak after the u.s. . libya's prime minister fires also is in turkey meeting with president juan
sarraj is the leader of the un backed government based in tripoli turkey is its main backer in its fight against warlord khalifa haftar since ankara increased its support of earlier this year how fast forces have been driven out of the capital to the east the u.s. military has released what it says is proof that russia is violating a u.n. arms embargo in libya the pentagon claims that these satellite pictures show russian military equipment being used on the frontlines of the conflict these include fighter jets air defense systems and armored vehicles the u.s. says that russia is boosting support for hoffa al jazeera as a trainer reports now from misrata. we've been seeing recently after his forces building up reinforcing their positions in sirte and the jinn a military has been saying all along that mercenaries belonging to the russian wagner group are position in the city of sirte the u.s. africa command also in may pointed out that orders or posted images of fighter jets
russian fighter jets moving to just brought that south central libya and the idea is that these are russian state jets obviously regular group or mercenary groups don't really have their own air force so this is and saying that the russians are building up their influence in libya and we also saw the russian and the turks suggesting that there's a work in there creating a working group to sort of deescalate the situation. and at the same time on monday president donald trump and president sisi discussed in a phone call about the escalating the situation but at the same time the egyptian parliament unanimously approved sending troops abroad now many people here think that if president sisi was to deploy troops it would further escalate the situation it would further destabilize the country and have to say the feeling here is that
libyans are increasingly being taken out of the decision making process whether up take on al-jazeera then zimbabwean officials in court to defend the arrest and imprisonment of a prominent journalist will have the latest plus. protests and russia's far east of a bad public challenge to president vladimir putin. and that. more heavy rain through all central areas of china and plenty of cloud bringing the same across into japan and still the lingering across the korean peninsula but the rain has been such a bunch in china we have seen many many images like this and has another coming out of shaanxi province you can see this massive rock slides it all took place of course it was triggered by those very heavy rains that cut off the main road for
quite a while now sunday unfortunately more very heavy rain back in the fall calls through central eastern as a china little bit of a break across the korean peninsula there is some rain but not as heavy as we've seen but here you should pick up some very heavy downpours as we go through the day and not really any break on monday that is when the heavy rain that beginning to push across into south korean particular and still those widespread shonen thunderstorms across much of japan but it will be a little bit lighter across the central and eastern areas of china and then into inducing a bit of a break here as well and then also as across the northeast you can see clear skies here on the satellite and as we go through sunday there will be some showers across the region but nothing like the heavy downpours we have seen over the last week still some heavy downpours across into nepal but really the rains are heaviest out towards the west up into rock just dropped whole way down into kara and all the while to the north we'll see areas of brain scan to thunderstorms will see some of those certainly to new delhi with the hive 33.

policies from moscow. the timing of the arrest is also raising questions earlier this month president putin oversaw a controversial vote potentially allowing him to remain in power for another 16 years critics say putin waited until he'd won the vote before sacking the governor from the opposing liberal democratic party. protests are relatively rare and putin's tightly controlled russia and the coronavirus pandemic is further complicating the kremlin's response it's not the type of attention putin is looking for but protesters in the city of $600000.00 people say the marches will continue until the governor is released. al jazeera. of course in bangladesh a bangladeshi migrant i'm sorry is facing deportation from malaysia after criticizing the government's treatment of workers during the current virus crisis. was detained on saturday he was interviewed in al-jazeera as one i want
