8:00 am
ah, the stage of for, and it's time for a different approach. one that is going to challenge the way you think from international politics to the global pandemic and everything in between. upfront with me, mark lamont, who on al jazeera, ah, hoping to men straying ties, the leaders of the us and china made virtually an acknowledged the need to improve cooperation on avoid conflicts. ah, i money inside. this is out there, live from dough also coming up. and ally effects president donald trump terms themself in to face contempt charges for refusing to cooperate with an investigation into the u. s. capitol hill briars. i'm never going to back down like
8:01 am
late they took all the wrong guy this. not you. sanctions for believers that you and the u. s. plan to expand restrictions on minsk accusing it of encouraging migrants to legally cross into poland. and teddy's president, faces and impeachment hearing accused of using his political power to boost his own business interests. ah. the president of the u. s. in china have held a virtual summit to try and on out issues that continue to cause tensions between them. trade, taiwan sovereignty and human rights in hong kong, were expected to be at the heart of the discussion. was speaking ahead of the start of the virtual meeting present. gigi, ping and joe biden, both agreed. they needed to strengthen communication and coexist peacefully. we believe. busy and you and i have talked about this,
8:02 am
all countries have to play by the same rules of the road. why the united states is always going to stand up for some values. and those are allies important. i think it's important we communicate honestly directly to one more about our priorities and our intentions. katrina hughes and beijing will be speaking to and just a moment. but 1st let's go to the white house where a corresponding company hall, curtis, kimberly. so the summit just completed what was the u. s. president hoping to convey to the chinese president yeah, we're waiting to hear from the white house. they are expecting to hold a call with reporters to give us a sense of what was discussed in this meeting. it did go on longer than we expected . we were told to be about 2 hours. # by my count, it's more about 3 and a half hours. so we do know that there was a lot to talk about and appears that they used every minute to cover some of the
8:03 am
issues that seem to be and dividing the 2 presidents. what we know is that this was not expected to be a color rather of a face to face virtual visit. that would bring about any big deliverables. for example, they weren't expected to resolve their tray differences. they were expected to resolve some of the supply chain issues that had been plaguing. a the united states, but instead the u. s. president said that this was about establishing guard rails as he called it, in other words, making sure that those differences did not escalate to the point of confrontation. and that has been the concern for many years now. even a prior to joe biden, taking office with donald trump in the white house, and there was this escalation that included a trade war i and will, some of that has not been dialed back. there was a definite desire by the biden administration to change the temperature of the
8:04 am
conversation. so that's what we know took place and we're watching very carefully to see what outcomes resulted from this very lengthy conversation. many, thanks for that. kimberly welcome, hawkins at the white house. let's now speak katrina you who's in beijing? katrina, what did she? what was gigi ping hoping to get from this meeting. i think she jan thing was very much hoping for some sort of improvement or normalization of the relationship between the u. s. and china, which has for years as kimberly luda to been very tense since the previous trump administration. we are getting some updates now from chinese state media that the meeting concluded about after 3 and just over 3 hours of discussion. one, a state media have just released the line that joe biden promised to. she's in thing not to support taiwan independence. our yet to verify that, but that's aligned as in put out by chinese state media. another line was that the
8:05 am
2 sides conducted full, an in depth communication and exchanges on strategic overall and fundamental issues in, in discuss issues of common concern. also there's been a bit of a analysis because a president she jan thing apparently opened the discussion by calling terabyte in la puente oil, which in chinese means old friends. so there's also been a lot of footage from chinese state media to warmly greeting each other informally at the beginning of this meeting. and that has been perceived very positively here in china. and also that positive reception has been reflected in the major asian stock markets who are, which have all risen as a result of this meeting. so i think there is some sort of understanding or perception that at least that this has been one meeting that's resulted in some sort of positive result for the us china relationship. now there are some difficult sticking points we yet to hear anything on the south. china sea disagreements over
8:06 am
hong kong, sion young human rights treatments, et cetera. but it does seem to be some positive movement there. i think beijing genuinely wanted to see some cooperation some when, when outcomes as president, she didn't ping said earlier when it comes to this talk. i think president, she would have hesitated all that refused. if he did not think that would be some concrete or at least some positive result from this, i think going forward as well. they're hoping at least from the genes point of view that there will be a sense of setting the, the relationship back on track. certainly president, she jim paying has sat down to these discussions from a very strong position here in china just last week in beijing we had a top level leaders meeting where she jumping, consolidated, his power. he's about to enter his 3rd term in office. he could rule china for the rest of his life. certainly, he seemed at ease, at least in those initial,
8:07 am
of the initial footage that was released from state media. and we're waiting to hear of more information as to what was discussed. a certainly we're going to have more details from at least her a chinese state media or the foreign ministry here in beijing. we're waiting for actually many thanks for that. katrina you their 1st in beijing donald trump, former political advisor, steve bannon, has appeared in court hours all that he surrendered to the f b on washington d. c. and he's facing content challenges refusing to corporate with a congressional investigation into january attack on the u. s. capital particle hang reports swarmed by cameras. stephen ben and turned himself into the f. b. i. the former advisor to donald trump, remained defiant. i want you guys to stay focused on matters. remember, still not noise. this is all noise. this is all about january
