12:03 am
signs of lebanese unity and what many see as saudi interference in their country saturday his resignation was sudden raising concerns about the circumstances behind the decision there is also concern about how to ease freedom of movement he may have been seen since he made the announcement in riyadh but the prime minister hasn't made any more statements lebanon's president michel aoun believes how he is under house arrest he told a saudi arabia the fear in beirut. that the circumstances of the resignation are an acceptable and how d.d. should return immediately. how did his own political party made a similar to mt they didn't just suggest the prime minister is being held against his will but expressed concern that lebanon's suddenly community could be marginalized even further. from this and from charles and disappoint bart. is controlling their government controlling
12:04 am
their festival on the other hand today they are concerned about. how do you do this for me so this is why yesterday. to. how do you really should be a priority lebanon is a deeply divided country there is a pro saudi camp led by her which has long accused has been law of imposing iran's agenda here there is a pro iran camp led by hezbollah which has long resisted demands to disarm and to withdraw its troops fighting alongside the syrian government. but even has below has added its voice to demands for how to be to return it to rating the belief that the prime minister is being held against his will when i know that. we have and we are all the lebanese take this as an offense and any offense to the lebanese prime minister as an offense to all the lebanese even if he is our political outbursts are of. hezbollah secretary general has an astrolabe was careful to avoid
12:05 am
political escalation instead he accused saudi arabia of wanting to impose a new leadership in lebanon and start a war he called on the lebanese to avoid provocation and to stay away from the streets the political divide hasn't gone away but for now at least politicians are putting it aside there is a rare consensus for the need to unite at what many describe as dangerous times. beirut. well the u.s. is urging all policies to respect lebanon sovereignty the secretary of state rex tillerson is backing saad hariri as international leaders look with increasing state department correspondent patty calling reports now from washington. it's the one question swirling around the world's capitals what is going on with lebanese prime minister saad hariri he resigned his post well in saudi arabia does he want to be there or is he being held against his will by the french weighed in you know
12:06 am
that he should i think you should ask him this we simply note that he resigned that you traveled to abu dhabi on the eve of president mccrum to visit so we think he is free and his movements and it is up to him to make his choice at the u.s. state department thursday the answer was less clear we have seen him in terms of the conditions of him being held or the conversations between saudi arabia and the prime minister hariri i would have to refer you to the government of saudi arabia and also to mr hariri office for use of the conditions of him being held as he is he in detention. that i'm not going to put that word behi i'm i'm not going to associate that word with that but where he is right now. she went on to say she couldn't even talk about where they met but her boss is sending a strong statement about what should come next secretary of state rex tillerson writing that the u.s. respects the prime minister and sees him as a strong partner he went on to warn there is no place in lebanon for foreign forces
12:07 am
and the u.s. cautions against any party within or outside lebanon using lebanon as a venue for proxy conflicts an obvious message to saudi arabia but his boss u.s. president donald trump has been more willing in the past to give saudi arabia a green light to do what it wants it remains to be seen if that will apply to lebanon but at the united nations growing alarm after saudi ordered its citizens to leave that country this is a matter of great concern to us and what we want is for peace to be preserved in lebanon. it is essential that no new conflict erupts in the region it's going to have devastating consequences a critical time for a country wondering what's next for them and their leader political hane al jazeera washington. for more on this i'm joined by his a policy analyst at the arab center in washington d.c.
12:08 am
thank you very much for speaking to us so we were hearing and. report there a rather vague statement from the u.s. state department on a boeing political crisis in lebanon and of course a great deal of speculation on the prime minister saad hariri whereabouts how do you see the comments from rex tillerson in the context of what we've heard over the posse days from the u.s. particularly president donald trump. yeah i think the the your position was very clear it's all it was expected that was a bit late in the game i think the us was covering some information that the surge really what's happening on the ground historically or traditionally the u.s. always supported national situation in lebanon the government the army the central bank they don't want to see iran basically maybe a liberal slipping to iran so i think they're putting little some brakes on or the saudi push. the report said. in the last year we had
12:09 am
a lot of policy differences between say the board and the white house so what we saw today and yes of the a big push by the pentagon by the state department to basically change the dynamic it seems they had they were more quick in dealing with situation than they did pull other in the middle east in the past few weeks. but in the you saying that there's a a difference in the town well not the ton but actually that the position taken by the u.s. president and the secretary of state with regards to lebanon. i don't think lebanon is a priority for for for the white house at this point the state board has as more involved than the pope but there's more involvement and i think they were able to call to the station a more quicker than they did for example in the case of qatar or other with it took a while so i think a liberal on the agree concerning what's happening in the u.s.
12:10 am
was part of the. deal that happened last october that elected on a presidential on and then brought her really to power the support of the deal so they felt they feel this big civilization fuck that now the me and while syria is still winning down so i think they said just a very clear message i think to riyadh to a little bit. on the rhetorical but in the larger sense there seems to be an alignment of interests between the u.s. and saudi arabia when it comes to pushing back against iran and i suppose this is where we see these tensions playing out lebanon is very much the arena for that. i mean the authority of the u.s. is big on iran true but it's not firstly to the stop much the on the ground you see in there is no russian the us understanding to basically allow the regime to take
12:11 am
a large part of a book of murder in iraq you have more to be wishing of the status quo that obama. started those forty years by by having the lead this was force but the two rickets link is lebanon and yemen and this is where the saudi arabia is trying to push but the difference is as iran does not seek a confrontation because they have the state school now the u.s. to the want to open a big conference which basically distracts from from other especially the but i was worried about you reckon syria they want to bury confrontation with iran and also you have israel look interested to jump in and change the conversation from syria to to to israel from hezbollah side so the ground is right the evenly but is politics there is somehow a unity that's diffusing the visited factor so there is no ground for the u.s. and france are expressing or those regional facts chamakh on in washington d.c.
12:12 am
thank you the u.n. is town now jazeera that has no sign of any aid going into yemen after reports that saudi arabia had reopened a border crossing earlier on friday saudi arabia ordered a total closure of yemeni and and land and sea ports this week the un has warned that yemen stocks of feel and vaccines will run out in about a month if the port stay shut and hoaxed as mom. it's difficult to understand that this is what humans can do to each other and millions of people face famine and are in desperate need of urgent humanitarian assistance. now the u.s. has backed aid agencies in calling for more to be done to alleviate the situation we've seen tremendous few food shortages in yemen we've talked about how this is really a manmade situation there the announcement that the ports were being closed down or limited in terms of some of the supplies is an area that's of concern to us because
12:13 am
the yemeni people are not the ones at fault for their situation we would like to see food aid medical equipment and all of that be able to brought be brought in to the ports saudi arabia has stepped up a land and sea blockade on yemen after a ballistic missile was hard towards the capital riyadh on saturday. before the blockade more than twenty million people at that safe a two thirds of the population needed humanitarian assistance now many hoffner like completely on food aid to survive. the country is experiencing a cholera epidemic which is expected to affect one million people by the end of the year aid agencies say they're struggling to work inside the country it takes from one town to another we have to almost go through one hundred checkpoints and this is a new man made disaster and there is no humanitarian solution to this we're asking for parties to come together to find
12:14 am
a solution desperate which is desperately needed for the people of yemen it's becoming increasingly difficult for people to get their hands on vital commodities with prices of petrol cooking oil rising by as much as fifty percent in a week. so far as closing down the ports and borders these are war crimes in the first degree the longer yemen's air and sea ports sit empty the longer the suffering will continue. there well elsewhere syrian children in eastern gooch are a facing acute malnutrition as government forces continue bombing the rebel held province doctors say medical supplies are running out and the un is warning that the area faces complete catastrophe four hundred thousand civilians living in east and have been under siege by the syrian government since september eighth deliveries have been blocked and hundreds of thousands of people need urgent medical evacuation. we have cases of poor growth due to chronic mom nourishment that has taken place over the past several years many children are lacking

choice but to stay put for now. donald trump's appearance has dominated a meeting on economic cooperation in the asia pacific region with a strong message that the u.s. won't accept trade deals that require it to surrender its sovereignty to china's president xi jinping told the summit that economic globalization is a process that can't be reversed when he has more from donna in vietnam often the most memorable event at an apec summit is the leaders photo opportunity at the garland dinner but this year's traditional costume chosen by the host vietnam was fairly low key that was in contrast to the days earlier events that included a speech by u.s. president donald trump he went straight on the offensive seeming to attack china's trade policies without specifically mentioning china they engaged in product dumping subsidized. currency manipulation and.

industrial policy they ignored the rules to gain advantage over those who followed the rules causing enormous distortions in commerce and threatening the foundations of international trade it's trump has vowed to correct some of the trade deficits the united states has built up particularly in asia but the america first policy that he campaigned on ahead of last year's election is seen as protectionist it runs counter to the multilateral globalist approach of most other apec nations including china. president xi jinping spoke soon after trump and painted china as a champion of globalization. openness brings progress while seclusion leaves one behind we the pacific economies know this too well from our own development experience we should put in place a regional cooperation framework that ensures consultation among equals with participation and benefits. that's what the trans-pacific partnership trade deal is

target people who speak out against the government or the president and head of next year's election. a u.k. court is up held a ruling that the dr is entitled to a minimum wage and paid time off the multi-billion dollar company argued that it's drivers workers independent contractors but the union supporting the driver says that the ruling could help workers at similar businesses now such as food delivery service delivery route says it will appeal friday's decision in a higher court. meanwhile heads back to court again on saturdays at pfizer renew its license to operate in london london's transport authority ruled it was unfit to run the taxi service in september. still allowed to operate in london until the appeals process has been exhausted also with me now is jamie woodcock a fellow at london school of economics who's a searching and other companies in the so-called gig economy so a fair few challenges for when it comes to operating in london right now but first of all it's very important ruling what are the implications for self-employed
12:35 am
workers so i think the first implications are this is a huge victory for the thirty thousand drivers in london. the claimants who put this forward you know have been fighting a very long battle and i think to hear the judge say today that what has brought forward is pure fiction i think is finally settling that these workers do have rights to employment and they have been affected effectively they've had to fight this over and over again and now the i.w. g.p. the union that represents these workers have finally been able to have this this is proven in court and i think it's a huge victory for people in both and what our legal options now they could go to the course of appeal or straight to the supremes court what might they do so i think it's very likely they'll try to appeal this whether in the appeals court or up to the supreme court level but i think this is a clear signal that actually these these workers you know have been categorized correctly by the court today and i think it's time actually that i have
12:36 am
a long hard look at how they've been treating the. people that they employ and i think this is all also to be a question for transport for london the threat to revoke the license did not say anything about workers' rights and i think now we've seen it proven that this kind of business model now has to include paying people fairly for the work that they do and in terms of the way as argued this they're saying that it actually could work as those that certainly want to have a more flexible working environment in terms of how often they work or when they work or the hours actually they would be that sort of flexibility would be taken away from them so i think what the court judgement has proven today is that other than being an employee or self employed there is a middle category which is worker status limby status to be specific and the independent workers' union of great britain and in the statement that it put out that you mentioned i said very clearly that flexibility doesn't mean losing your employment rights actually people should have the right to work flexible jobs and
12:37 am
still get the minimum wage the right to holidays the right to sick pay these things don't have to be traded away to have flexibility with your hours so it's not a case of either having the established employment rights or the flexibility it is possible to be categorized in that middle ground so then how does that what is the knock on impact for the gig economy will we see a change in the way these companies categorize their workers i mean i think the most obvious implications would deliver who also the i w g b have been representing workers there so we have both the thirty thousand drivers in london for over but i also think delivery drivers and i think more broadly many people facing precarious conditions will see this is a victory to see that actually employment rights are not something that these companies can bargain away they can't choose not to pay for holiday pay or sick pay or any of these benefits that actually these are things that people have a right to and i think this is the first step in seeing actually more broadly in
12:38 am
the gig economy that it's not good enough for these companies not to knots of paperwork is fairly all right jamie woodcock from the l.s.e. thank you very much and stopping by. i want to take you to see don now where efforts are underway to it build the country's shipping fleet which was devastated by twenty years of u.s. sanctions it's been a month since the sanctions were lifted but recovery has been slow ever morgan reports now from port sudan whenever he looks at the port has and says he remembers the days when his import business was still up and running but that was before the united states slapped sanctions on sudan through your name or a very rewarding way i used to bring in clothes for people to design and customise now the ships have to stop at other ports the goods are unloaded there and then when shipped here that has increased the cost of shipping so now i've been forced to close my business. as i am isn't alone the point is the country's logistic help and gateway to the arabian gulf it exports not just from sudan but also from
12:39 am
landlocked neighboring countries like judd and south sudan all the ships at the port are now foreign but it wasn't long ago that sudan had its own fleet of fifteen ships which transported goods and passengers but one thing happened that slowly killed the industry until last month the u.s. had imposed economic and trade sanctions on sudan it meant the government couldn't maintain its own fleet of ships and had to tell them to cut its losses the last almost sold almost a year and a half before the sanctions were lifted the sanctions came into force in one thousand nine hundred seven when the us accused the dan of human rights abuses and sponsoring terror it was designed to hurt the sudanese economy and so it did and all but destroyed the shipping industry to news authorities say with the sanctions lifted they'll try to rebuild their fleet but it won't be easy on the docket for years building ships takes a lot of time making one from scratch takes at least two years so we don't expect it to happen in the near future only after quite
12:40 am
a while will students shipping fleet again it strengthen the port is becoming more active though hopefully by next year we will have more development in the industry analysts say the government should focus on modernization of. lifting the sanctions gives us a chance for the government to bring in new technologies to make the port and its industry able to provide better services for now but won't help the economy maybe in two or three years it will especially through transit services to the neighboring landlocked countries. has a knows his days of bringing in goods by sea are over but he hopes with a new post sanctions era the younger generation could export trade beyond the harbor he now only visits he morgan and is there port sudan. doctors in new delhi say the current pollution levels are making the city unfit for human habitation hospitals in the indian capital say they are dealing with a twenty percent surge in emergency admissions pollution levels and more than eight
