2:00 pm
not just corruption, where a global audience becomes a global community. the scariest part of this moment in my country is this place for more weapons, the st. oh, now g 0. latin america is a region of wonder. i'm joy of tragedy and yes, of violet. but it doesn't matter where you are, you'll have to be able to relate to the human condition with me. i've been covering all of latin america for most of my career, but no country is alike. and it's my job to said light on how and why lou is really and lebanese leaders approve a historic maritime agreement to boost the energy needs of the 2 countries.
2:01 pm
ah, i'm robot this. and this is on the 0, live from doha. also coming up southeast asian countries fail again to take a tough stance against me and mars military rulers, at an emergency meeting of foreign ministers. in the pakistani journalist killed in nairobi is to be laid to rest in islam of unexplored. we're going to take a look at the security measures being taken to ensure the tournament is a safe one. ah, we are going to begin with a historic deal is being signed between lebanon, israel to resolve a long standing border disputes. the agreement is aimed at opening up oil and gas exploration in the mediterranean sea. israel and lebanon are still technically at war, so it's being signed in separate rooms that are you. i'm in the lebanese border time
2:02 pm
of quarter energy company that's operating israel's cottage, offshore gasket. the says it's already begun operations. this leave me the local you. this is a political achievement. you saw every day that an enemy recognizes the state of israel in a written degree lives in front of the entire international community. every day that the united states phone stand behind does provide security and economic guarantees for the agreement. we will correspondence of both countries. bernard smith is in israel. first we're going to go to zina auto nikoto and southern lebanon. as in this deal, it has been years in the making just talk us through the timing of the agreement. well, yes, it appears that the all parties in vol to, in this agreement, have vested interests and securing the deal. first of all, you have lebanon in a country in economic crisis, a country which has not begun exploring the possibility of gas reserves beneath the
2:03 pm
sea. now, international companies can start the exploration, because in the past they refused to do so, unless a maritime border deal is in place. so economic interests drove lebanon to agree to this, to this agreement. and then you have the radio, they needed security guarantees. they needed stability along the border in order to increase production because the aim now is to get gas to europe. europe is facing an energy crisis. it needs to find alternative supplies than what it used to receive from russia. no doubt. the gas reserves in the eastern mediterranean is not going to fill the gaps, but still it is much needed reserves. so for israel, this was about security guarantees, and that's why we saw the americans really push, push very hard to get this deal in place. and on behalf of the europeans, france as well played a role to get this deal done. so vested interest, the historic deal, but both sides insisting that it is limited in scope,
2:04 pm
it only involves alienating the maritime border. lebanon has repeatedly said that this is not the peace treaty. a this does not signify in any way a normalization of relations and the foreign policy of this country will not change . the latest statement coming from the president seems to be in response to what the israeli prime minister says that this is a political achievement and a de facto recognition of, of the state of israel. zana. thank you very much. indeed. i want to bring in bernard smith, who's at the border between lebanon and israel in northern israel. i santa was expanding there. there's a certain amount of restriction being placed on this agreement, and certainly no change to lebanon's foreign policy. how is this being seen in israel, given the fact that the countries, if i understand correct, they're so technically a war they are, but it's being seen here, rob, as it's being seen in lebanon as an historic agreement, all sides of called it, an historic agreement. the documents on the israeli side was signed by prime
2:05 pm
minister yal at bead earlier today. it arrived here on the border by helicopter, about half an hour ago in about 10 minutes ago, a convoy with the signed document drove through the board of post there to sort of an israeli a no man's land. on the other side, this document signed by israel will be given over to the us side who landed over the lebanese and lebanese will do the same. and then both sides will lodge. they agreed coordinates of their maritime border or with the united nations is significant. the israel because israel sees it and giving them security on the northern borders yet yale, up here in a statement after the signing he said it strengthens israel security and our freedom of action against has bala. this is the around backed group that is power for in lebanon, and already one of the feels that lebanon, that israel has exploited carries just yesterday for the 1st time, started pumping gas or so significant diplomatic alec, a nomic achievement for viewed here from in israel beyond the timing for israel is
2:06 pm
significant as well, particularly because we're in the run up to the elections. of course that are coming up very shortly in november. it's very good timing for yale are paid of is one thing is rarely voters like it's a prime minister who's strong on security. and so that is how this is being played by yale apiece. government. he hopes that he will win another mandate up the election next week to give him to allow me to form another coalition to continue covering governing. but like the for previous elections they've had it in. busy israel here in the last or years, it's very, very tight. that could be a comeback for benjamin netanyahu out of power for a year. polling suggests he might just edge it. so every vote the yale f pete can get to hopefully keep his coalition in power helps and on strong on security as this will be played is something that could play well with potential if there are any left wavering voters in his rep. bernard, thank you very much indeed, bernard smith at the borders when the israel and lebanon

2:09 pm
every one is keeping quiet. there are also plans to use a so called a dirty bomb for provocations. at every turn, these sorts of accusations have been dismissed as absurd, transparently false by ukraine and its allies. the speculation that russia may be trying to simply escalate in a grandstanding way, its own willingness to fight on. or potentially, it's an indication that russia itself wants to use such a device. but conventional weapons continue to do damage enough here and to me pro a petrol station set ablaze by a russian strike. emergency cruise said to people, including a pregnant woman, were killed. every faucet al jazeera, give southeast asian countries have failed again to take a tough stance against me and my military rulers. i didn't emergency meeting of foreign ministers discussion centered around developing a new strategy and dealing with his own time. so i was losing calling him for, and she says the statement made by the chair said nothing new, and it is in line with austrians. policies. this is

2:11 pm
not wanting to call out the june to, and it's brutality against the anti coo opponents in myanmar. it's used a disproportionate force on anti coo fighters. now we know that one of the main aims of this meeting in jakarta is for foreign ministers editor. and i representative to come up with recommendations for ozzy indeed is to discuss when they meet in cambodia next month. but if the statement is, any indication is any guide than people who expect are vienna, who want to see the and take a firmer stance on young more are going to be sorely disappointed. a funeral for prominent pakistani journalist osh i studied as being held in the capital islamabad and his body was returned to his family and pack his son from ly. robbie. on wednesday, sheriff was shot dead by canyon police. and what officials say was a case of mistaken identity. the journalist had been in hiding for fear of persecution in pakistan because of his investigations into the country's government and military catherine size in california. and she tells us more about the
