we'll do it without you that's the message from the pacific rim countries to donald trump as they move forward on a free trade deal without the u.s. . you're watching al-jazeera live my headquarters here in doha coming up in the next thirty minutes well no no not that. we have and we all the lebanese take this as an offense lebanon demands the return of its prime minister from saudi arabia with more international pressure to end the political crisis. and you deadlines have the refugees refusing to leave mannus island out by monday or the police will move in plus. our message is a wake up call for europe gatherings of far right nationalists from home and abroad threaten to take poland's independence day celebrations.
8:02 am
good to have you with us eleven of pacific rim countries have sent a message to president donald trump the group reached a deal to move forward with a new free trade agreement the trans-pacific partnership without the us included in the group are canada mexico chile japan and vietnam the development came on the sidelines of the ongoing asia pacific economic cooperation meeting in vietnam trump took the u.s. out of the original twelve nation agreement soon after taking office in january that as it's known doesn't include china which is also attending the apec summit went hey it's following events for us from denying in vietnam so they've got ahead with it. they're leading perhaps by example and without the us. yes well it certainly been a roller coaster ride over the past year or so since the united states president
8:03 am
donald trump made that decision to pull the u.s. out of the trans-pacific partnership there was some real doubt as to whether the deal would be able to go ahead without the year where saw or indeed whether it would need to be started all over again start with a complete renegotiation which experts say could have taken years maybe even as long as ten years which is what it is taken really for us to get to this stage today that roller coaster ride really continued right up until the last minute here in vietnam there was supposed to be a sign off of this provisional deal on friday when the leaders of the nations met but there was a major complication when the canadian prime minister justin trudeau didn't show up and emerge at the canadians had some serious doubts about some of the elements of that deal but it seems now that those issues have been resolved and we've had confirmation now coming from some of the other government. ministers who have met
8:04 am
and signed off on this deal. has been reached in four months but it comes to specific aspects there were cases where intense arguments took place but we all shared this goal of achieving the agreement in denying at this time and through a pragmatic response of the parties we came to this agreement so i want to pay tribute to the ministers chief negotiators and everyone involved in this process for their efforts the question now really way is how these bilateral conversations are going to happen between the countries within the apec group and how they deal with both the u.s. and china separately. yes well i think you hit the nail on the head really saying that the sends a clear message now to the u.s. president donald trump that this is the way forward for these asia pacific countries involved in this deal that they believe that multilateral trade deals are the way to go and that is pulling in a completely different direction than the u.s.
8:05 am
president wants to go we saw him in his speech again on friday talking about the fact that he is only interested in really now signing bilateral deals dealing one on one with his fellow leaders and no longer will the u.s. into into these large deals there is some hope still within the transpacific partnership though that the u.s. will rejoin doesn't look like it's going to happen under the presidency of donald trump but they are still holding out that hope and we heard that from the japanese minister in that media conference saying that they still hope the u.s. can rejoin the trans-pacific partnership in the future and then you bring in the chinese of course who have also not ruled out joining the t.p. but at the same time they are backing another multilateral deal a much larger deal called the regional comprehensive economic partnership involving sixteen countries many of those countries are also members so clearly most of these
8:06 am
a pick members present here in vietnam are in favor of multilateral deal so clearly it sends a message to donald trump that that is the way they want to go with it is of course what will come back to you as we get more word what those regional leaders have to say thanks wayne. well the other main story that we're following is that the u.s. has now joined the un in wading into lebanon's political crisis calling for stability after the shock resignation of the prime minister saad hariri the hariri announced he was stepping down while in riyadh last saturday blaming interference from iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah but hezbollah's leader says hariri quit under duress hasan nasrallah is accusing saudi arabia of detaining hariri and not letting him return home u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has cautioned all sides to respect lebanon's integrity and independence warning regional powers against using it as a venue for proxy conflicts on the un secretary general is warning that
8:07 am
a new conflict in the region could have devastating consequences all of this on citizens from saudi arabia kuwait and bahrain begin to leave lebanon after being encouraged to do so by their respective governments there are harder reports now from beirut citizens of saudi arabia and its gulf allies visiting or living in lebanon or are leaving it's not the first time gulf countries tell their citizens it is not safe to stay lebanon has long been entangled in the saudi iranian power struggle across the region but the latest warning heightened tensions after the resignation of lebanon's prime minister saad heavy but alongside the tensions there are growing signs of lebanese unity in what many see as saudi interference in their country so that it is resignation was sudden raising concerns about the circumstances behind the decision there is also concern about had it is 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
8:08 am
believes had he is under house arrest he told a saudi arabia charge at the fair in beirut walid bihari that the circumstances of the resignation are an acceptable and how d.d. should return immediately. and how did his own political party made a similar demand. they didn't just suggest the prime minister is being held against his will but expressed concern that lebanon's sun the community could be marginalized even further. and french and disappoint. is controlling their government and are controlling their destiny on the other hand today they are concerned. 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
8:09 am
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 to the belief that the prime minister is being held against his will when i know not. all the lebanese take this as an affront. to the lebanese prime minister as an offense to all the lebanese even if he is our political bursar of hezbollah secretary general has was careful to avoid 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.
8:10 am
beirut. well as much as any of the u.s. is urging all parties to respect to lebanon sovereignty this while other world leaders look called with increasing a law state department correspondent particle has more from washington d.c. it's the one question swirling around the world 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 the french weighed in you know the me should i think you should ask him a few we simply note that he resigned that you traveled to abu dhabi on the eve of president micron's visit so we think he is free in 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
8:11 am
and also to mr hariri office for use of the conditions of him being not going to associate that word with it 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 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

face most prominently today the emergence of nuclear weapons and long range missiles in north korea without the participation of nuclear nations in the treaty some say disarmament might be a pipe dream but others say it's comparable to when chemical and biological weapons were banned that was a crucial first step in making those arsenals illegal and discussions like this are now the way of cranking up the pressure on those countries some speakers believe that it's up to the public to demand an end to nuclear weapons it's insane and everybody is saying insane but government are not listening and again with that the chronology we have with social network with every every ability we have right now we just have to tell government shape up or get out. what they're calling for is a new more equitable global security system perhaps utopian and unrealistic for
