12:02 pm
space of just a week. remind us how we got here at him. well darren, what we had last week when the doggie 1st off her resignation to the present here at the presidential palace was a confidence vote. that really angered and upset one of the coalition partners that was the 5 star movement, which holds a lot of seats and parliament that but doesn't command a lot of power anymore because they're declining the poles and the leader in the senate, decepticon se couldn't come to an agreement with rocky at that time and drug he said he wanted his support, use a key member of the government. he couldn't see continuing the government without that 5 star movement when the 5 start movement boycotted that earlier confidence vote, which but he actually won a majority of in that boat last week. but i came up here to offer his resignation. it was rejected. the president asked him to go back to parliament on wednesday and say what he would need to continue. well, he gave a very strong speech wednesday morning here in rome,
12:03 pm
not far from where i'm standing in the senate. and he said that an outpouring of support from italians across the nation supported government showed him that they should continue, but that they should continue all of them in this unity government several rival parties. but throughout the day and all these back room negotiations, the parties just wouldn't get on board with what he was asking for. the unit limits of one voice of a government and it fractured. basically, you had 3 party thing. we don't want to continue 2 of those, so they wouldn't continue with the 5 star movement. so even if the 5 start movement had gotten on board, it would have been a big mess that wouldn't been able to continue. so many came just a brief while ago to the president for power and offered his resignation. this time the president method accepted it and only asked them to stay on the care of the caretaker until early elections. could you tell them what happens next to me looking at the election that yeah,
12:04 pm
we don't know exactly when some reports are saying it could be as early as september, october, but the president is going to be meeting political leaders and just a few hours here at the palace and they're probably going to hash out some timeline for early elections if they do come in the fall is what looks likely. it would be the 1st time since world war 2 that the times have voted at the time. because usually in the fall, parliament passes a budget, and this year facing so many crises, many or talents, are worried that if everyone's focus on the political crisis and electing a new government, many projects that many problems that need to be address won't be because they won't have a budget approval, so it's how italy like many countries, it's basically a problem in placing their focus on the war and ukraine mart your drug has been a big supporter of ukraine. it's questionable the next government that takes power after alexis will support the premise much, and they're also facing a drought. they haven't seen the lights in 7 decades. so italy has a lot to do in the selection. threatens to distract the country in its leaders from
12:05 pm
addressing those problems as they head to the polls earlier sooner rather than later. they're all right to adam regular for stay in room adam. thank you. no ronna, we're from a finger has been sworn in a sri lankan president. he was elected by impedes, despite widespread public protests. many shoreline can say he's partially responsible for the current economic crisis. we come, a singer says he's going to be tough and what he calls undemocratic demonstrators. he will complete the term i've got to buy a raja baxa, a resigned off a fling to single last week. well, the political and economic instabilities pushing many to consider, leaving the country steadfast mass more from outside the passport office in the capitol. well, when mad, i need to become a thing. i was a sworn in as the 8 executive president in sri lanka. these people here was standing in a very long queue and they all want to leave the country day. told me i've spoken to some of them that they don't have any confidence that there will be any change
12:06 pm
any time soon. and their situation has become so dire, people have told me they only eat once a day. they have really cut down on their nutrition. they have seen their salary said go down, the prices have gone up so they don't see any future, at least not for the coming years here in this country. so they're all trying to get a passport. that's why they've been doing some of them have been in the queue for 3 days. as you can see, they've been sleeping here. i've been eating here. they're basically been living here for 3 days to get a passport and with them like hundreds of others. so this feel here symbolizes the real sheer desperation. sri lankan are in right now. iraq is holding a day of morning off to an attack on a tourist town in the kurdish region killed 8 people, and wounded 23 tillery bombardment happened in the mountain of tourist zacko in the north. turkey rejects allegations that it carried out the strike thing. it was a tele, i'm going to most off to me as worn down credit bank that reserves the right to
12:07 pm
retaliate. so if you readily carries out it strikes in northern iraq targeting members of the code is done workers party, which it classifies as a terrorist group. might what up, why does more now from that that will this probably based on no previous operation carried out by turkish forces in the areas near the borders with iraq, again is to p k k, the kurdistan workers parties, fighters, it seemed that many institutions here in iraq are still insisting on accusing turkey of or turkish forces of carrying out this attack. despite the fact that turkey has strongly deny dutch and accused the could this time the workers party fighters over carrying out the attack. now, today has been declared a morning day in iraq for the victims of the the artillery attack in zacko resort in northern iraq. and the prime minister must have
12:08 pm
a cause. the me says that he's tweeted that it's a violation of iraq's sovereignty. the many institutions he has specially political institutions are putting pressure on the government to take action by downsizing, diplomatic representation with turkey. and also some are calling for a closure of crossing terminals with turk and coffee organs. and it's done. but when the government says it's not responsible for the attack, since yesterday, turkish foreign ministry and military sources have been saying that this is a terror attack. this is not done by the turkish military and turkish foreign minister. 2, he repeated that he rejected the claims of turkish military target. the civilians, he said turkish military never target civilians anywhere in the world. and the world knows that and turkey claims that these operations in northern iraq against

12:16 pm
speaker of the us house of representatives expect the deposit taiwan next month, and the moves been met with fierce criticism from china. nancy pelosi strip would make up one of the highest ranking american officials to visit the self. rhode island in decades. china has won the u. s. would bear the consequences of such a trip. beijing consider taiwan as its territory. when a thursday joe biden was asked by a reporter, if it was a good idea for policy to travel to taiwan. i think that noah cherry thinks is not a good idea right now. what? i don't know what the status of it is. what joining us from taipei is brian hugh. he's a political commentator and founder of new blue magazine. bryan. good, happy with this. i mean, i think it's worth pointing out, but nancy pelosi will be the 1st sitting speaker of the u. s. house. to visit taiwan in 25 years. how significant is this trip and why now do you think? right. and so it's, it's timing, but there has been increased international spotlight on taiwan as a result of,
12:17 pm
for example, covered ninety's, but also rising us transactions and so under the junk ministration. but then also on the bottom ministration. one has seen more attention paid to attempt to service a corporate talk, as included, for example, us centers of the things i want to make boxing donations. and so this would be another layer of installation having the us peak of a house, the visits i want. i instead timing the original timing of the chart, there was an entity in april, then pelosi contract to cover $900.00. it was unable to make it that would have been after the ukraine invasion. and so that would have been attempting to reassure . but now months later, i think that the timing has changed. so that is why i received these comments vital . and brian, there are already reports that china is extremely angry about pelosi, strict with official saying the u. s. will have to bear the consequences. is this just say by rattling from beijing or i would like to see i'm a worrying chinese response. do you think? so there has been a lot of cigarettes from aging in regards to politicians. one contain some time off,
12:18 pm
sometimes it takes place in the form of aaron curve and just how on air defense identification is own in which aeroplanes identified. and so there are fears and china potentially exploits offered up others discussion of china. ready and comparing it to actions and $990.00 s regarding the challenge price. personally, i think that is a little bit overblown is not to that point yet. it is possible, but then that same time one knows that there's a lot of things i'm trying to fight. there are outbreaks of 19 being to lock them. she didn't thing is sticking on president. the 3rd term out the 20th national congress later this year. but for stability in order for that to happen. yeah, i'm brian, as you point out, hello. these trip comes to the low points of us china relations. what are the americans hoping to get out of this trip and how to tie, pay, view it from where you sit there and tie $1.00 so obese, reassure taiwan, but also show china of other u. s. stake in the asia pacific. i think this law so quite infant calling the death of general ave, for example, are raising questions about regional power. i mean, he was not, i'm the sort of and in the form of i, mr. but after that, for example,
12:19 pm
one saw strength thing of relations between calendar and with vice president william ly, traveling to japan as the top government official and ears. and so i think it's re to reassure, but then at the same time with us, i mean there's also fashion with this impact, american election, mineral actions. and i think that's what ap biden's concerned about. but he's also scheduled to talk this evening within this month. and so raising up close each up, having that occur. now it as a shadow over the stocks. and so i think that's another reason why it's brian just a final thought to you. i mean this trip by pelosi comes, just as china, as you point out, is preparing for it's hugely important party congress and october. how much will china want to show its domestic audience? it won't allow us to undermine what it sees as its sovereignty and territorial integrity. so i think a thing that china wants to make a strong show for us and that as we say in recent times in the form of displaying us naval assets is of course new aircraft carriers and so forth. and so that may take place. i don't think c wanted office week or so that would be something that
12:20 pm
in order to install their power, you might want to make a strong demonstration there. brian, who really good to get your thoughts. thank you very much. dba talking to out there . thank you. bye, thanks much you as president joe biden threatening to take executive action if congress doesn't pass legislation to tackle climate change. he's announced $2300000000.00 in funding for building infrastructure. the can hold up against extreme weather and natural disasters. my kind of ripples. the presidents being taking the heat from fellow democrats who insist he's not doing an up to combat climate change. and they were disappointed with no announcement of a climate emergency or executive action. only a repetition of the threat that he'll take action if congress doesn't. this is an emergency, an emergency, and i will, i will look at it that way. i said last week, say it again loud and clear as president. i'll use my executive power to combat climate, the climate crisis in the absence or congressional action. the problem in congress
12:21 pm
essentially lies in the senate, in particular, one of the president's own party, jo mansion who's pulled out of negotiations over climate legislation. given the senate 5050 split, this means unless some republicans break party ranks. any legislation will simply not pass because of, you know, one senator in particular, joe mentioned who get more money from the oil and gas industry than virtually any other senator. by didn't, he is blocking biden's legislation in the senate, so that fight and cannot enact his climate agenda there. the site of the president's speech was carefully chosen. the brighton point paula station was labelled one of the full fi, 5 industrial polluters in the past. but the coal fired plant was decommissioned 5 years ago and it's now set to become part of a massive, offshore wind power project that could generate a significant amount of green energy. and the president listed what he views as his
12:22 pm
administration successors, including the most recent. today, we began the process to develop wind power in the gulf of mexico as well from the 1st time, a real opportunity to power millions of additional homes from when. but this will not be enough for the precedence protects to continue to call for stronger executive action. president biden has the power to declare a climate emergency which could assist his administration in limiting the activities of fossil fuel industries on federal lands. but this in turn could lead to the administration being involved in long drawn our battles in the courts. and the president has confirmed his administration's message, that executive action remains on the table. but while the delay in execution continues, there's a real danger that this could become another proceed to biden failure. that voters
