closed extrapolate that across the country and the spread of corona virus appears far wider than any one sort. or the law in. the us from sup the pressure on china saying it rejects beijing's maritime claims in the south china sea as on will fall. hello i'm barbara starr you're watching out 0 live from london also coming up. too many countries are heated in the wrong direction the world health organization warns that if nations don't take basic health care precautions the pandemic will get far worse as the u.s. the struggles with the worst corona virus outbreak in the world the white house is
accused of trying to discredit the man known as america's top doctor. we'll look at how the new ban on the sale of alcohol is going down in south africa . there with another 5 years as poland's president with a narrow victory that is likely to deepen the rift with the e.u. . hello welcome to the program the united states has toughened its stance on china's disputed claims to offshore resources in most of the south china sea calling them completely unlawful secretary of state might pompei or has released a statement saying beijing has no legal grounds to unilaterally impose its will on the region the move is likely to further increase tensions between the 2 nations and it comes hours after china sanctioned u.s.
officials for supporting measures against the treatment of chinese weekers from pale statements says the us champions what he calls a free and open indo-pacific his statement says the u.s. wants to make it clear that beijing's claims to offshore resources across most of the south china sea are completely unlawful as is its campaign of bullying to control them. the south china sea claims by china include ownership of the spratly islands which are also claimed by the philippines vietnam and others the scarboro reef is claimed by china and the philippines and that this feud began 8 years ago when the philippine navy a pretend that 8 mainland chinese fishing vessels in the shoal compares announcement comes after china impose sanctions against 3 u.s. politicians and the envoy for religious freedom those targeted include senators ted cruz and marco rubio well supported legislation president donald trump signed in
june calling for sanctions over the repression of weaker as the u.n. says about 1000000 we have been detained in reeducation camps in xin jiang china's foreign ministry is warning the u.s. to stay out of china's internal affairs me found some engine tension the u.s. practice is in serious interference in china's internal affairs in syria's file ation of basic norms in governance of international relations china opposes and strongly condemns that response to u.s. wrongdoing china has decided to impose sanctions starting from today. it's going on all of this from our white house correspondent kimberly halkett so i mean it does seem that chinese u.s. relations are all time low just remind us a little bit and explain further exactly what the secretary of state said. you know we keep thinking it can't deteriorate further and then it does this is just another
escalation in the tensions between the united states and its adversary china now as you pointed out this announcement coming from the secretary of state comes on the heels of beijing retaliating for the measures that took place late last week by the united states with regard to additional sanctions the china retaliating then with putting the measures against some of the top u.s. senators and now we have the statement from the u.s. secretary of state what makes this notable is the fact that up until now the united states has always argued that when it comes to dispute over the south china sea that it was really pushing for this to go to arbitration u.n. backed arbitration so this statement is a departure from that and that's what makes this so notable the fact that the secretary of state is now saying very clearly and very firmly that the united states stands with the south asian allies it rejects china's territorial claims to the south asia rather to the south china sea and what's more it goes even further
accusing it of bullying of taking actions that are not consistent with international law in the hopes of securing the rights to these resources that are there so the united states' position is very clear believes that china has no legal ground to impose its will and for that reason the u.s. now taking a very strong stand against china and its actions ok so a strained relations between the 2 but on a wider scale what kind of impact do you think this will have and crucially is there anything to add about the timing of all this. now well in terms of the timing this really comes on the heels of the united states saying we have not been happy with the number of actions that china has been taking you have to remember this is an election year and donald trump is furious with china accusing it of not being more transparent when it comes to covert 19 that he believes is now threatening his reelection chances so that's number one we've also talked about the concern the
united states has had with regard to the treatment of muslim weekers inside china and the concern that this is not something that is consistent with human rights and then on top of that we have the actions that have taken place in hong kong there have been very strong statements by this administration by the u.s. congress the concern about hong kong's national security law not only how it is treating the residents in hong kong but how americans could be caught up in that treated unfairly so the united states has taken a firm decision it appears to kind of step up its escalation in the rhetoric and potential actions but at the same time the united states has also been very provocative in these waters as well because we know that the united states has put in place 2 aircraft carrier groups and has been conducting military exercises something that china has been pushing back on so neither of these actions appear to be helpful in terms of trying to deescalate the tensions that as you point out have

. protesters say the governing coalition is still heavily influenced by the former president kabila stepped down last year after nearly 2 decades in office but as allies hold the parliamentary majority and control over most cabinet ministries just last month scrabulous allies proposed judicial reforms that also sparked protests they would have given the justice minister more powers over judges and prosecutors now president cheesecakes k.b.e. rejected the reforms the putting the divide within the governing coalition as one saw in a robi has more now on what is causing the unrest. today's protests were organized by opposition parties. and in the capital kinshasa john p.-r. bemba an influential politician with a huge following lead thousands of his supporters who were trying to get to parliament they were dispatched by police using tear gas they say they reject the
