8:40 pm
responsible for the violation and serious crimes thank you. i think it is you're watching jazeera we're bringing you coverage of the united nations security council meeting on the situation in libya you just heard from qatar as deputy prime minister and foreign minister mohammad a bit odd that a man been just some funny sick calling for a comprehensive cease fire in libya among the warring parties there also asking for a return to negotiations and avoiding unlawful external interference not before that we also heard from the turkish deputy foreign minister said it's all knowledge at this point i want to bring in our diplomatic editor james bays who is at the united nations and been following this for us both sides there on the side of the u.n. recognized government of national accord but it is arguable that it was turkey's involvement with the g.n.a.t. that was a tipping point for the g n a. absolutely true their involvement has
8:41 pm
been very very to decisive in recent months yes about half an hour ago or hearing from egypt one side of the argument a country supporting general haftar and there you've heard from turkey and its close ally qatar the other side of the argument and they clearly have a trump card which is that the u.n. security council has in the past said the jna the side they support is the internationally recognized government now there is some dispute that even though that is the case that doesn't allow you to breach an arms embargo in the case of turkey bring in fighters from syria and bring in weapons but it certainly does add some legitimacy to the turkish argument the other thing that i think turkey and qatar supporting turkey have on their side is the leader of the group that they are backing in libya prime minister is someone that people in the international
8:42 pm
community are able to deal with he is a bureaucrat by background and he can speak the language of foreign officials and gets on with foreign officials compare that with general haftar and i've spoken to quite a few people who have met or spoken to general have to they say quite literally here is a megalomaniac he is a dictator but coupled with that he seems to be very forgetful he seems to constantly being having rouse with his own commanders and the situation in his court probably best described as that is somewhat chaotic so i think that is also a significant factor here the 2 leaders one is a leader of the international community can do business with the other is one that most people that i've spoken to who had dealings with him said they found those dealings most difficult james over the last few weeks when i've been doing interviews about the situation in libya there's been a growing suspicion that if khalifa haftar is seen to be any sort of impediment to
8:43 pm
finding some sort of solution to the situation in libya he may well just be sidelined and in fact somebody else might be found in his place is there any sense from the united nations that that is a possibility. well i think in some ways given that there is this has become a conflict between 2 key groups the g.n.a.t. the internationally recognized government and the so-called l.m.'s led by general haftar i think the un whole plan is for peace negotiations then elections and hopefully that someone would emerge as the head of a new government and it might well be from neither of these groups or at least be a new fresh figure to give a new fresh era for libya what the the calculations going on among those that have been supporting general have there is not clear because i think different countries have been supporting general have to for different reasons the russians may well be
8:44 pm
supporting general have to for a different reason from egypt in the u.a.e. and france never says it's supporting general haftar but clearly has very close relations now with the u.s. and the certainly seems somewhat aligned with moscow but i think there are different motivations among have to supporters and no clear figure certainly none of half those deputies some of whom have been accused of war crimes would be suitable to replace him so certainly in terms of those supporting general haftar i think if they could find another candidate that didn't have the problems that have to have they might have settled on one by now and they haven't found one that's james braze bring us up to date on that meeting of the u.n. security council on libya directive from the united nations james thank you very much indeed domestic flights in nigeria are taking off for the 1st time in 4 months the main airports in a butcher and lagos reopened others will follow over the next week nearly 30000

coronavirus cases have been confirmed whether at least 660 deaths amid interests has more from abroad. if they've been flights in and out of trouble you know over the past few hours and although that only 4 airlines in kind of 1000000000 operations today we expect that things will pick up by to morrow today that it's been cautious on the part of pricing just a lot of people are waiting to see how things go but right now behind me is an aircraft that just arrived from the commercial capital lagos and these are the only 2 m. post by the way that have been approved to restart domestic flights in nigeria after 35 to 30 months in action in the app port now what happens here will determine what will happen next week more airports across nigeria will open next week and over the course of 2 weeks the now you know civil aviation authorities will decide judging from the performances of the airports in the 2 weeks they will decide
8:46 pm
whether or not they will allow international flights to resume quickly now jane is that you've got to travel outside the country despite rising cases of coronavirus in the country so the government is also keen to also reopen the economy fully understanding that a lot of a lot of things depend on the movement of goods and services especially off investors from one city to the other and from one country to nigeria. coronavirus cases continue to climb in the united states the number of dead has now passed 130000 and infections are surging in states that push to reopen early but president donald trump continues to downplay the resurgence of the pandemic and insists he wants schools to reopen in the new year by kind of reports from washington d.c. . texas is one of the 1st states to use its mitigating measures responding to pressure from president trump in mid april who insisted he wanted
8:47 pm
states to open up to restart the economy. now with stealing with a massive increase in infections joining florida and reporting more than 10000 cases in a day a figure matched only by new york state in the early stages of the pandemic in the next 2 weeks we're probably going to end up being what new york was 2 months ago i think that's what's going to happen donna ingraham has been an i.c.u. nurse for 17 years last week she went from caring for patients to becoming a patient herself after testing positive i really at one point in time asked god to take me the pain wise ridiculous. it was simple i mean in my mind i couldn't breathe think i didn't have to be put on ventilator the republican governor who ordered the early opening of texas is now dialing back and re imposing mitigating measures including the wearing off masks we

8:55 pm
provoking a mixture of anger and bewilderment by no apollo explains why the mexican president under this one. is meeting with u.s. president donald trump this week at the invitation of the white house but what would normally be a standard meeting between 2 world leaders has stirred criticisms but. by sickly there is an election season underway in the united states and the mexican president's visit could be misinterpreted but also over the years president trump has expressed many offensive things toward mexico and mexicans this is why many people have a deep distrust and reject the way president trump has treated us. president trump is not very well liked in mexico and much of that has to do with his past rhetoric regarding the mexican people when mexico sends its people there not sending their best they're bringing drugs they're bringing crime they're rapists and mexico will pay for the wall. one of the good attitudes soured further in
