a stadium in. what looks like. sports center. this appears to be satellite images from a u.s. based space technology company that. bucked in the stadium. but could they be given orders to drive into hong kong if so it wouldn't take them long to do so sean john is just 27 kilometers from hong kong and welcome back to the special administrative region the presence of minister very close so close to hong kong is raising questions about beijing's intentions but how do hong kong protesters who've been described as tempest's by beijing see it did have a corresponding phoebe kong spoke to one of them so as a home call and support has to do you worry that beijing what ashley intervened to protest on the street and how come. i think they were during the thing we do all
6:33 pm
the way he can do it so i put but i don't scare so just come never never mind. you so what is the reason behind like you're saying you're not scared was the reason behind and we used to carry on to protest even if this happened if our core my my post my or my protest ok. it is chance to work at the freedom. i don't i don't know we don't how freedom how much freedom we get but this moment i try try our best to cry against. the press. but we also see some fallen out like at the airport like last night some of the force has to come to have questions but police and also some i think. some of the people like el paso yeah and we have to balance over the last few days so i speak as
6:34 pm
a homo how do you feel about that i think. the police missed i think for my for my for my. phone company is how to treat the people but. they do something. drawn last night after talking. to a protester but. i i support them understand that follow how they're angry and companies saw how i stand with the protesters now that would be kong talking to a protester at hong kong airport joshua one is a for democracy activist and secretary-general of the pro-democracy party demo c store we spoke to my lawyer and i asked him if he thought the protest movement will be successful in the battle or they picked versus goliath is not a easy and simple battle we might face
6:35 pm
a lot of crackdown and suppression but we would never expect that would because hall call is the place where people stand in a forefront to call for an authoritarian rule just like it's brought it in the last century and we will continue to update we get that general democracy and we all. have status formally asking the u.n. security council to hold an emergency session to address what it calls delis illegal actions in the region by distance from minister imran khan traveled to pakistan and just moved today to mock the country's independence day there he offered support midis on the indian side he said today we are saddened by the plight of media brothers occupied in occupied jungle in kashmir who are victims of indian oppression i assure my kashmiri brothers at the stand with them. india and pakistan spotted intentions of a crash made also have the potential to drag another major stakeholder into the
6:36 pm
crisis together that india and pakistan control about it to percent of the region they drive new border you see the region of jammu and kashmir but the remaining 20 percent here in the balt and in the north east is actually under the control of china india 2 names these 2 regions of this past week a bold the indian and pakistani foreign ministers have been in beijing the chinese government made clear that it's not happy with india's actions. well there are some differences between our 2 countries we don't shy away from those differences we exchanged vs those matters in a kind it manner regarding the recent tensions between india and pakistan we made clear china's concerns on the issues that regarding involving china's sovereignty and price and interest we also stated china's principled position and let's talk
6:37 pm
about this small way it has sharma joins me now sharma good to see you how much does the indian government's decision to revoke the shmita special status affect china. well bray sure china is seriously concerned about the move not as much as prime minister modi's decision decision to scrap means a special status but do bifurcate the state and it has started only disputes with india and the like dock region is now in the middle of all this so beijing believes that the decision good to be permanent and permanent be a factor this started during this border between india and china so china is concerned definitely but i think the indian foreign minister when he was it did.
6:38 pm
china he actually is trying to to convince chinese authorities dot there shouldn't be any what about it speaking of they did foreign ministers counterpart in pakistan shah mahmood a question you know he claimed has china's complete support on. mean does it. i do not think so i don't think that pakistan has china's complete support you see that china has large investments in india and obviously chinese authorities would not like do to ruin the trade relations with india india is a huge market and also china is pretty occupied with other issues at the moment and i believe that on this to know these dining to announced this decision was pretty good china is involved in hong kong china has an ongoing trade conflict with the us so china is pretty preoccupied in other things
6:39 pm
and. i have serious doubts that beijing vid will go all the way to help pakistan out and the situation in some of today's also pakistan's independence day and by mr khan has expressed on the data to me and with me it is on the indian side. have these latest tensions with india unified the polity in pakistan itself. no not at all it has not unified it it's a pretty chaotic situation domestically in pakistan you see just days off to. this decision on kashmir. the pakistani government arrested former prime minister nawaz sharif's don't muddy i'm not. the joint parliamentary session in pakistan was unable to to reach a consensus the opposition parties are blaming on for the mess the foreign policy
6:40 pm
mess the domestic crackdown on opposition on civil society activists so we see a pakistan domestically very fractured very divided very polarized pakistan domestically has not been able to take any single any unified stance on the kashmir conflict meat prices when they were there for the time being thank you so much for joining us. in thailand farmers have been hit hard by the worst drought in a decade the lack of rain has left fields fast and dried up in a given systems more than a dozen major dams across thailand are almost empty a dire situation with an unexpected silver lining at one drought struck reservoir a last buddhist temple has reemerged from the receding water. a cultural treasure long hidden underwater the construction of
6:41 pm
a dam 20 years ago inundated this buddhist temple in thailand for a province. now after months of drought it's reemerged leaving the memories to flood back on the ground i'm seeing the temple again is really emotional. when i was young i always came to meet friends at the elephant scope in front of the main building. that place was a landmark for children back that. might not have been little the temple is normally covered by water and the rainy season you don't see anything. but the exposed to ruins also a reminder of the harsh reality for local pharmacy the reservoir which kept the temple under water is at a record low as thailand faces its worst drought in a decade. we are. currently on the water level in perceptual as it dam is
6:42 pm
even lower than the last record low in 2015. back then it was $33.00 centimeters above sea level. today the water level is lower than that for several centimeters. life in. the reservoir normally irrigates more than half a 1000000 hectares of surrounding farmland but currently there is only enough water for just over a 1000 hectares the land is drying out and with it the crops. up the people in all sectors need to be made aware that they have to change the way they consume water we need to save more water because i believe this kind of water shortage will happen increasingly often. couldn't. and that means that peace temple ruins may once again become a common site for the people of look corey province. borders on the website you know because. that's or to be

6:45 pm
come the latest figures published by china show from its factories is growing albeit its slowest rate for 17 years the impact of the trade war with the u.s. is taking its toll at home bought a white house decision to delay some type of u.s. plan to slap on chinese products is of least some hope that tensions could be easing. the delayed tariffs if they'd hit in september would have been no laughing matter for ordinary americans for the 1st time they would have affected consumer products including toys clothing and electronics that's why president trump says he's perspiring them for festive reasons explaining to reporters that the tariffs would have had too much effect on people's christmases. the president also says the decision.
