conic eruption, and salami, and a u. s. telecom companies postpone rolling out 5 g networks after warnings, they could cause catastrophic disruptions. ah, thank you very much for joining us. the u. s. secretary of state has arrived in care to meet president vitamins and in ski as the white house warrants russia could attack ukraine at any moment. washington has also voice concerned about the deployment of russian forces to bela rules for joint war games. further beefing up rushes military efforts near ukraine. a fairy of high level diplomacy is taking place this week. as world powers tried to diffuse the crisis. antony blinking his you'd hold talks with blushes, foreign minister, take oliver off in geneva on friday. our views. this is an extremely dangerous situation. we're now at a stage where russia could, at any point,
11:02 am
watch an attack and ukraine. and what secretary blinking is going to go do is highlight very clearly. there is a diplomatic pass forward. it is the choice of president putin and the russians to make whether they are going to suffer severe economic consequences or not. i'll just hear, as dorothy jabari has worn out from moscow. russia maintains their position that they have no interest in invading ukraine. and any suggestion to that is absolutely preposterous. the russian foreign minister is said that the troop movements within their own land is very much within their right. and it is nobody's business to tell them how and when they can move. there are troops in russia, that is something that it's very much their own sovereign right now in terms of what this visit means and what the us secretary of state is hoping to achieve. it appears as though is a last ditch effort to try and salvage that situation through diplomacy and dialog before it escalates into further conflict. possibly the us secretary of state
11:03 am
is meeting the ukrainian president and then he's traveling to germany on thursday. we're, we'll meet with officials there. and then of course the big meeting will come on friday in geneva, between secretary blinking and survey lab roles, the russian foreign minister. and that meeting is where we're going to find out what will come next. the 2 men will meet in geneva to try and hammer out what the russians want and what the americans are willing to give. the russians have said they want an official response from the americans about their security guarantees that they want about nato. and the possibility of ukraine joining nato, and that is something that is very much a red line for this country. early i spoke to country li, co senior policy fellow at the european council on foreign relations. and she believes there's still room for a diplomatic solution to the crisis myself. i find it unlikely that russia would attack ukraine in this manner, but people expect with huge land force,
11:04 am
but with the inevitably result in many casualties. i do not think much russian society and russian political system could take that psychological flow easily. so my view is slightly different. i think mobilization is still designed to force a west to talk with russia to address the concerns that russia hasn't was, has not wanted to discuss. however, that doesn't mean i exclude military action. i just think that this would take a different shape and could actually happen any time. i think it's good, but they are talking with the crane because ukrainian government seems to be focused on completely wrong things mean it, at least from distance it looks like president. lance is priority is dealing with domestic composition and arresting former president that's about shanker,
11:05 am
as opposed to preparing for wall. so it would be good if outside is good, help the focus for mines and discuss with, with what conveyed to diplomatic ally as well as politically not least the ukrainian government, if they were willing to invest again in the norman did process. i think that's a good one diplomatic path. why not many? not the know that the maker on its own, but this a combination of other things. in other world, news is really police have demolished a house belonging to a palestinian family in the shaft, your neighborhood of occupied east jerusalem. the eviction which has drawn international criticism from activists thought it a few days ago. but a standoff ensued after the family of 15 threatened to blow up their home. if they were forced out, the area has become a flash point of tension, with hundreds of palestinians facing eviction. harry foster has moved from west jocelyn as follows on from what took place on monday with the demolition of the
11:06 am
families plant nursery business as obviously a severe threat to their home as well. and that threat was enacted in the very early hours of a very cold and rainy morning in occupied east jerusalem by 100 is ready, security forces moved in, they cut off the electricity, they arrested witnesses se sum 18 people from the side. and they have now completed the demolition of this home. it stood on ground that the israeli municipality, and the police say, has been confiscated or he or taken by eminent domain, which usually involves compensation to the owner. there is some question over the actual ownership of this land where the family has been living since 967. the police say that it is being taken for a, for the building of a school which will serve special needs children in the area. but all of that is predicated on israeli more and as far as the international community is concerned,
11:07 am
international diplomats have been holding station outside this, this property for some time. they say that this is not a question of is ready lords, question of international law. and under international law, such actions in occupied territory are illegal. and so we have the situation where the family is now out of their home. that home has been demolished, 18 people arrested. and the potential for further attention in what you say rightly is a real flash point in occupied east jerusalem. the united nation says it's stepping up its response to the volcanic eruption ends. mommy in tongue that the government has described it as an unprecedented disaster. dozens of homes have been destroyed, re people a confirmed dead, but the world health organization says many are still missing several islands and the main airport as smothering ash. and that's delaying the delivery of international aid and operation to clear the runway is underway. but the ashes
11:08 am
proven more difficult to clear them was expected. um we thought that it would be operational yesterday. i am. but it hasn't been fully cleared yet because folk more anxious being falling. um and so they clear about a 100 or 200 meters per day. i java, which means i should know, ah, today, while since the runways been closed, australia and new zealand have been sending fresh water and other needed supplies by boat. we seeing the rain dog was like growing the moraine on the night, will be sold to be able to help with the underwater, a suspense, especially in terms of the, the wolf. but also how the c b may have changed as a result of they are wrapped sion to enable maritime has such bosa really critical areas. we can, we can support in the line and with the toning government to help build their own

11:11 am
what, what are the, the priorities in terms of 8? so the tongue of national emergency management machine me earlier today, and they identified a clean, safe drinking water, diesel fuel and so rude as the primary areas of concern, although it will. so asking for i'm support and terms of undergoing an initial, initial damage assessment. but certainly those exits the safe drinking water and also the impact of the bus ongoing ash full on local agriculture is also a concern that there is some concern right now about the risk of, of a delivery spreading cove 19 to the island, which has been free of the virus how, how will this affect aid efficacy thing? so at the stage, because tony has been to date or closed orders and, and, and his is only open to nationals who are returning for the government has actually
11:12 am
requested a contactless response from the international community. and that means that we will be supplying we will be delivering aid release supplies, but in terms of international workers on the ground, that still remains to be seeing how they're going to work. and we did that actually will per say, given, given that we don't want to start another disaster upon an already existing disaster for tongue. thank you so much for talking to us about this from out of any from care test. joining us from christ. trish in using and thank you for your time . thank you. still head on al jazeera, the philippines government is accused of penalizing the poor with tough coping 19 restrictions. and why scientists are worried a penguin paradise at the end of the world won't last forever.
