3:20 pm
more that unites them at this time than divides them, particularly when it comes to food security. energy supplies and regional, structural security, as well as opposed to receptor of their think. we have, we heard similar themes from most speakers, from most leaders, and they all have to do with as you said, the food security, economic security, security, security of force. and of course security from terrorism and social and political security as well. so i think the question of security with all its pillars, i think seems to be on the mind of all of these leaders, which i would often of course, also try to somebody who was saying fear, you know, fear of all of this instability and violence. and how were not water tech space in one part of the world, such as russia and ukraine? of course, it also affects people and, and, and lifestyle and standard, living everywhere. i think also one of the,
3:21 pm
one of the issues that was common between all those who spoke the out of speakers anyway, it was that of palestine. we've heard that the emphasized by they may have cut down, but we also heard it mentioned by every other leader golf. see that as well as that of egypt. and speaking of egypt, i think present c. c gave probably the most expensive the most i would say eloquent speech and the thing because it covers all the 5 issues that he said are very important solving all conflicts like palestine, promot, believe it or not promoting democracy and citizenship in the world. and he spoke about, of course, the security and the 44 months or so forth, and combating terrorism and food. and then the security. if you're 100 percent cc, who is being saying that in, i would say this should be the agenda for the oblique. for the next step, but the problem there's always a but right?
3:22 pm
the but here on all of this is that while the, all of them agree into that themes. but the proof is in the pudding. right? i mean, what will they then unite all around those issues and do something about them? will they as the prime minister of iraq proposed or establish a regional development bank in order to deal with a lot of those issues. and i think really whether they'll be able to walk their talk is the test, you know, right. i just going back to what you took him out. so we regards to, to palestine. i am one of the key things here. me of cats are stressed was, was i was to cast, ah, i kind of called critical eye on the speed in which relations are being normalized across the region with israel. obviously there is an outstanding issue about the palestinian situation. there. i was that a message from the me it's a to, to, for us to stop rethink recalibrate before we go headlong towards something we may regret. well, certainly there's the idea that the palestinians, of course,
3:23 pm
we have heard from him art about that is that the only way to pressure israel as for the arabs to leverage their influence. but if they are not making peace or normalization secure to coordination with his or there will be no reason for israel wide to or for the palestinians, and ent, occupation, and up at a sinister. but i also think he's also sent a bit of a message as well to the american president, not one of his our colleagues by saying, you know, we speak, we speak of a solution to that issue. but what we see is israel expanding, illegal settlements, not advancing. peace settlement. and i think that's important. there's a big difference between illegal george settlements that are happening at the expense of about a senior. so that the ration and that of the settlement that is not being advanced and that what we heard from present by then it doesn't seem like it's going to be advance any time. so i wanted to talk about something that says, present biden said he said so the u. s. will be an ally to the region and that we
3:24 pm
will not walk away and leave a vacuum filled by russia, china or iran. what did he mean by that vacuum? while yes, i think a lot, a lot of a lot of vote over america our lives at the region. we're worried that when by then spoke about, we need to focus on our main challenge may and june broke a challenge, and that is russia and china and that america needs to deescalate and, and her, you know, shrink its presence in the middle east and so on. so forth, and of course there was, there would draw well from afghanistan, the catastrophic, the way it's happened, we drove out of gas, and that worried a lot of people in the region. so what he and his lieutenants are saying, look, if anything were duncan of grandstand is going to free, more resources to invest in the middle east to where we are prioritizing. but certainly in our re prioritizing middle east figures heavily in where we're heading
3:25 pm
. and i think directly and indirectly, he made clear that the middle east is one of those important areas of conflict by proxy with china and russia. and hence, america needs to be there. not only just wants to be there to preserve. busy american national security as a superpower. so i think the messages were not going anywhere. we are re prioritizing, but we are maintaining our presence. and just for our viewers are on the war. this important to remind ourselves that there is an american military presence or bases in every single gulf states. let's talk about progress if possible by one, because arguably, the u. s. does say progress has been made over yemen, and i noticed several leaders there did of course mention yemen. it was of course, the site of the year will still is the sight of the world's worst humanitarian disaster in spite of these claims of progress. where are the leaders on that issue? i think winding down the or you can happen 1st, the factor and then later on by design, meaning, it's basically the soldier a, b,
3:26 pm
and its allies, the you got a payment of others just could not win the war. they could not basically end could not win it. and so it was just important at this point in time to end the, the craze. you know, as it where of this war of this humanitarian disaster. and i think the united states try to help that because it's one of those things that the united states has been advocating that's talk to de escalate and let's bring in diploma. so you know that there is all some of these issues. i think just we've been the united nish has been trying to do that for years, except now as i said, there's a need for it's also on the part of saudi arabia and others in order to just wind down ended up because it started to affect not only yemen, but also so the and m r i t security. when we start seeing these miss aisles being dislodged. mean, being shocked against saudi arabia and the united. i'm out of evidence. i think america, what is important in order to do something about that to end up crisis. but as we've heard from the speakers, the only, not just german, there's libya, there's
3:27 pm
a walk there, syria, there's palestine. so there's a. busy number of issues, the middle east makes up 5 percent with what population, but i think it's mixed up almost a 3rd of the violent conflicts in the world. wow, and thank you so much my number shara odyssey with senior political analyst. now this railey military says it's carried out an air strike on a hamas targeting garza. after rockets were fired towards israel, the army says it had a weapons manufacturing site. he says at least 2 rockets were fired from garza over the sudden it's really city of ash, along and warm was intercepted by it's air defense system. all production is set to resume in libya after illegal barrier was removed. the announcement followed a decision by tribal groups and there blockade oil fields and export terminals, which are stall production for months. they've been calling for fair distribution of oil revenues. doctors in ukraine say they're concerned about the trauma.
3:28 pm
soldiers are being exposed to on the front lines. they're seeing a significant spike in serious brain injuries and post traumatic stress cases. but as the alum fisher reports form the outskirts of the ukrainian capital key, if the best that the adopters could do at the moment, is to patch them up and to send them back to the front lines where many of them are put in their lives at risk the, the injuries of war. you can't see the trauma, the damage from the front lines. this clinic on the outskirts of keith tries to help the patients have p t s. d post traumatic stress, or significant brain injuries. christina, who needs to, nor is the clinics director, emphasis. lou then you are patients of people who lived through the events of the war. a work is focused on psychological trauma that they suffered and we work with them to give them strength to go back to the front line. and we'll go through molly
3:29 pm
. i'll just eat a 1st made audrey at the beginning of the war, a former soviet soldier. he signed up as a volunteer for the ukrainians just days before the fighting started. but on the outskirts of mighty pole, he came under fire something he can't leave behind. not easy to get away from what's going in your, in your, in your had paid and some kind of you know, flashback flashbacks. you know when you just close your eyes and everything give start to going faster and faster and faster on your head. and sometimes it's very much he struggles with his memories. he gets anxious when he is the miss else on it . but still, he thinks he's lucky. i was lucky because i am still alive and i have 2 to 2 hands and 2 legs and i can walk and i can remember something that is very,
3:30 pm
very good. because lots of our guys actually a died for, for a crane for freedom, for, for forever. the use various techniques here to help recover the physical and the artistic, the even half pet therapy, the horses, and a popular diversion at us on cleaning. it's hard to help while they're actively serving with the military. we have to stabilize them and get them back to the french. the real work will start when the war ends. marina, the average stay for patients here is around 3 or 4 weeks, but the recovery that takes a lifetime. alan fisher, i'll visit her on the outskirts of keith. italy is coping with its worst drought in 70 years. adam rainy reports from the po valley. this is what italy's longest and most important river that.
