5:02 pm
ending in jetta saudi arabia. just an hour ago, biden laid out his strategy for the middle east in a room full of regional leaders, including saudi crown. prince mohammed, ben solomon biden promised the u. s. would not walk away from the region. let me stay clearly at the united states is going to remain an active, engage partner in the middle east. as a world grows more competitive and the challenges we face more complex zone, becoming clear to me that how closely interwoven america's interests are with the successes in the least. we will not walk away and leave a vacuum to be filled by china. russia were rear. will cease to build on the smooth, active principle. ver, can leadership as bringing kimberly alcohol. whitehouse correspondence her choice. me here in the studio. kimberly, would she feel that the u. s. president needed to assure middle east to leaders the
5:03 pm
america would abandon them. oh, well, there's a couple of reasons and some of them are self serve areas. first of all, it was almost a message to not just the golf leaders, but to russia and china that to look at, we're not going anywhere. in fact, that's exactly what he said is kind of a signal look if you're trying to encroach, we are not going anywhere. we're going to stay right where we are. but also think about it i, it's also a signal and maybe a sign of the winning influence of the united states as well. i mean, there was a time when the united states didn't have to say that it was just known. and so that is also as signal that say in the united states perhaps is a little bit concerned. in fact, so much. so that really was the purpose of this trip. the united states was very clear. the us president was clear, he was here to re establish, to recalibrate some of the existing relationships that go back decades. but i have
5:04 pm
been harmed in many ways. and so there is no question that there is a strategic interest of the united states when it comes to saudi arabia and that partnership, when it comes to its relationship with israel, when it comes to a number of these relationships and conversations that he had with golf leaders, what is specific when it comes to the relationship with saudi arabia and comes to relationship with israel? a is there common foe? and of course, that is iran, and it's increasing dominance in the region of course into it. while in the israel, that normal binding agreement, sir, was reach wounded with the yellow p both leaders signing an agreement to prevent a wrong from developing its nuclear program. any further, how important was it for biden? to do that. it was absolutely critical for a number of reasons. number one because he is a staunch supporter of israel and israel sees this is an existential threat,
5:05 pm
but also not just for the foreign policy stage, but this is important for the domestic stage as well. because the u. s. congress sees this as being critically important. the u. s. congress. that is very divided. we're democrats and republicans typically agree on nothing. they are very united on this issue, particularly when it comes to the defense of israel. and this is political, this is a president who is low and the approval ratings is struggling on a number of issues and knows that he has congressional elections come november. and we should point out he is going back empty handed right now. because the reason that he was making this trip was to get the saudis to pump more oil. he did not secure a new agreement, is to try and get the saudis to do just that. to lower the price is back in the united states. so essentially he comes back empty handed, has to deliver that message to the american public, the voting public and the voting public. that will be
5:06 pm
a deciding who will control congress, whether it will be his democratic party, or whether it will be the republicans come november or kimberly hockey great to have you here in doha. and if you to share your insights, can we, how could all white house correspondent the cutters. amir shakes, i mean, been hammered out. honey said all arab countries are ready to normalize relations with israel. and he restated the importance of solving the palestinian issue. i law mobility said i am in hobby, the arabic countries despite their differences and have unanimously agreed on the arab piece finished, which expresses a readiness by all of them to normalize relations with israel. if it agrees on a settlement based on international legitimacy and resolution stipulating withdrawal to the 1967 borders within p circle, i saw that it will be improper for us to abandon our initiatives just because israel rejects them. and so like as parliament has begun the process of choosing

5:23 pm
battling blazes that have spread across the border from spain. a plain being used to tackle the wildfires crashed, killing the pilot within 30000 hacked areas of land have burned the past week. that's more than all of last year or earlier i spoke with tom burke, he's the chairman of e 3 g 3rd generation environmentalism. explain what's at stake if governments fail to act quickly to counter the effects of climate change. been more accurate to say the probability of events like this and the intent see when they occur is a result of human activity. so we're seeing more very more heat waves and the heat waves that we're seeing are hotter. and that's because of the fact that we're burning fossil fuels simple. exactly. no, in northern europe, especially the u. k. a talking about the weather is a fact of life. it's will miss that kind of national art form, isn't it? but, but homes there, for instance, on notes designed to with strand,
5:24 pm
it would stand such extreme heat, not the same applies to schools and hospitals. a railway stations retrofitting entire countries is going to be extremely expensive. i couldn't agree with you more, and you're absolutely right. we're used to thinking of whether as being predominantly cool, wet brought the draw. and so all of our buildings on lifestyles, all of our infrastructure, not just buildings, things like railways are not really designed to cope with a kind of temperature where like you can see on monday and tuesday of this week. and so, yes indeed, it will cost an awful lot to adapt to it. but what's really important about that need is if we got stop burning fossil fuels, this probably will go on getting worse. so we can't say, well, let's say that instead of dealing with the problem, we have to both at that and deal with the problem. at a point made recently by u. k. energy supply is, is that with every degree in temperature and increases energy demand by one percent
5:25 pm
as people switch on fans and an air conditioner, conditioners, how do we cope with that extra strain on energy supplies? well, the 1st most important thing is to improve the installation of people's homes. now insulation thinks he's in, but it also helps to keep it out. so we've got to do things that are for structure to cope with. they increasing too much precisely so that it does not the problem worse. but we've also got to get out of burning fossil fuels to provide electricity as fast as we possibly. often governments tend to put the onus on the individual to make a change in the winter. they tell us to put a put a coat on to stay warm in your house. don't turn the air conditioning too much up in the, in the, in the summer. but surely, governments are responsible for taking the lead on this. there's no way you can add up individual behavior to solve a problem like this, that is caused by the way,
5:26 pm
restructured our economy over the last 100 years. so, so governments have to intervene and they have to intervene very vigorously. i'm not mean politicians to understand that there are war with physics and they can't win a war with physics. they have to do the things that are necessary and they will be difficult and they will be politically painful. but they don't all kinds of ways. it's becoming clear. if we do the things that are necessary politicians give the lead, they should be giving well, actually end up with an energy system that's more efficient, cheaper, more affordable for people, bearer in the sense of my paperwork. i love the inequities in the current energy system. so it's a better world to be gone on the other side of this problem. but politicians really have to put the shoulder of government to the wheels and they're not doing that really anywhere in the world. fast enough. finance ministers from the g 20 nation,

5:28 pm
we have about a 3rd of emerging markets whose borrowing costs in foreign currency is over 10 percent, or that is an important marker. so it is getting to be challenging times for these economies. chinese president, she g paying has visited shin jang and was thought to be the 1st trip to the region since the crackdown on the week of muslim minority. she described it as a hub in china's infrastructure program, connecting it to central asia in eastern europe. beijing has been accused of committing human rights abuses against the weaker, including force labor and sterilization. the un security council has passed a resolution urging all countries to ban small arms deliveries to haiti where gang violence is soaring. at least 89 people were killed in the capital or to prince this week. violent crime has affected fuel distribution, aggravating shortages, which of course widespread protests in recent days. john martin bower is the world food program representative in haiti. he says,
