the president trying to sort of clarify his remarks on flat image putin and russian meddling in last year's election he also called for nations to work together and that he just wants to get along with russia and north korea speaking in vietnam mr trump addressed questions on whether russia had meddled in last year's presidential election he said he accepted u.s. intelligence assessment that moscow did indeed interfere but he also accepted the russian president's belief that russia the played no part i believe very much in our intelligence agencies now at the same time. i want to be able because i think it's very important to get along with russia to get along with china to get along with vietnam to get along with lots of countries because we have a lot of things we have to sell i believe that president putin really feels that he
feels strongly that he did not meddle in our election what he believes is what he believes what i believe is that we have to get to work. well mr trump didn't just talk about russia he also rallied support on the issue of north korea saying all responsible nations must act to stop its nuclear and missile threats and went on to emphasize the importance of all nations working together for the greater good we have to get to work and i think everybody understood this that heard the answer we have to get to work to solve syria to solve north korea to solve ukraine to solve terrorism it's now time to get back to healing a world that is shattered and broken those are very important things. well let's talk to graham webb now he's a research fellow at nanyang technological university in singapore he's joining us live from skype and so what do you think of. mr trump sounding very much like the
great globalist the traditional american visitation if you like of being there the global policeman yes certainly he does sound like the great globalist except for many observers in the region he isn't using a globalist he's an isolationist in the least you know the messaging that he is delivering right now as we speak while he's visiting. the philippines is creating confusion increasing confusion rather than lessening over the last few months we've been receiving mixed signals from the trunk in this tradition about the exact specifications of the rule of the united states here in this region in economic and security terms i think right now our optimism has and hasn't grown it's lessened there's a signal perhaps even a sign in the cards that i can ask you and has to get on with doing a great number of things on its own the signing of the comprehensive progressive agreement on the working out of the. transpacific partnership that it doesn't have
the u.s. in it is a clear sign that regional players here feel that you have to get on with things without the united states i mean the u.s. is offering its hand but there's nor there's a lack of conviction behind that are i on our show and rely on them all right so there's a there's a feeling of mistrust if you like president trump currently in the air we understand on his way to manila first off he's offered up his offer to provide some sort of mediation role hasn't he with regard to the territorial disputes in the south china sea is that something the ass and nations will take seriously. i don't think our. members have it all figured out at least with how the trumpet is ministration. issues. we've moved on over the last half the last ten months without any significant intervention by the us with obama
obama administration was rather different here over the last ten months things have changed significantly the chinese have sort of consulate pulled on a substance he issue and asking to see it seems that acquiesce to that right graham webb cling to life from getting a payoff at the start of the assay and meeting taking place in manila thank you. now saudis say t.v. has new video of lebanon's absent prime minister saad hariri met king saul manage riyadh this is just the third time that mr hariri has been seen since he unexpectedly announced his resignation in the saudi capital eight days ago he's made no public remarks since and they're also gesture and that he could be being held against his will let's go live to our correspondent zain a holder first and we'll go live to center in a moment but let's hear her report first. posters are springing up across the
lebanese capital beirut expressing support to. the resigned prime minister who really is unknown uncertain times in lebanon the country finding itself at a crossroads for the past year this country and toward relative stability in a very turbulent region but things have changed and lebanon finds itself in the middle of the saudi iranian rivalry playing out across the region it's been like emulating for quite some time since two thousand and five i guess it's been here really since really assassination. and we have to like saudi arabia and iran and those. people on the ground iran has. others economics and in the middle of all this i think and live under a lot of special editions what they do best is that they they they lie and they say things. to make people maybe scared and to put this like political pressure
on everyone just to get what they want we are in a. neighborhood hold many people here feel that the current crisis is going to march and allies them even further the sunni community has long complained of iranian dominance in lebanon and now they're blaming their own ally saudi arabia of robbing them of their leader. now. we want to know the reason behind his detention lebanon can't handle this crisis they harmed their dignity the detention of their prime minister is unacceptable sort of like in the this is a loss for all of lebanon hariri is loved by everyone we're all upset by his detention no one will accept what is happening this is humiliation for lebanon we won't be quiet we will demand his release i mean go live now to center and get the very latest from there first of all i'm just wondering whether those new pictures
broadcast by saudi television are making any any impact in lebanon at all. well not really like you mentioned this will be the third time we've seen the resigned prime minister since his sudden resignation last night he was with the saudi king earlier this week he was also seen with the saudi king on tuesday in abu dhabi holding talks with rulers there but now we are getting reports that there could be a live interview with the resigned prime minister on his local channel now some reports are suggesting it could happen this evening and nine thirty local time and other reports are suggesting it could happen in the next few days because we have to remember yes we've seen the prime minister but he has not made any public remarks since so so far these are unconfirmed reports but if he does appear in a live interview he is expected to say that he is not under house arrest that he is a free to move but he is choosing to stay in saudi arabia for security reasons now
wils at the dispel the speculation and belief that many lebanese have especially the top leadership that he is being held against his will it's still not clear the president himself has said that even if the prime minister speaks but he doesn't return to the country because of the vagueness surrounding the conditions he's he's being in saudi arabia nothing that he says can be take of they can officially so what is being demanded is for heidi to return to the country and meanwhile we're on day eight now since this sudden surprise declaration of resignation from mr hariri is the a political consensus between the various factions in lebanon is it holding. for now it is holding they're putting aside their political differences there is a rare sense of of unity today for example you can see behind me the streets are closed there is a marathon the president is hoping that this event will be to demonstrate
solidarity with the prime minister there are posters everywhere put up across the lebanese capital saying we're all sad he should return home but like i said political differences are there now the biggest question if saddam how do you do does appear live on television and he you know reiterate criticism of iran and saying that you know iran and its ally in lebanon is holding lebanon hostage will that change the sentiment in the country because it's very important to point out that for the time being in his stronghold you heard those people in his stronghold they were concerned they're concerned about saddam how do you do they believe he is detained that if he appears on television will that sentiment change will they really would they believe that their prime minister is heading this campaign against hezbollah so things could turn and change at any time but for the not time being there is this unity and it is holding it all right for now senator thank you then a honda live in beirut. now gals as residents have joined commemorations marking the thirteenth anniversary of the death of palestinian leader yasser arafat for the
first time in ten years organizers prove it promoted the event as a national day of unity many hope a recent agreement signed by rival parties fatter and hamas will end their rivalry . reports. tens of thousands gathered in gaza city to honor yasser arafat for many here the late president and longtime leader remains a symbol of palestinian statehood. i'm not a god i don't know that we love him and it's our duty to commemorate his revolution . but this gathering is also a symbol of palestinian unity the first in ten years for fatah found in hamas controlled gaza last month the two political factions signed an agreement to end their rivalry it will allow the fatah led government in the west bank to control gaza. hamas has ruled gaza since it one more parliamentary seats in two thousand
and seven. the anniversary of arafat holds pain and hope pain of his death and losing him as he sacrificed himself for palestine and hope which hamas and all of the palestinians want hope of achieving unity and reconciliation and rearranging the internal palestinian house yes or homicide lead the fatah movement for nearly five decades until his death in two thousand and four from what was reported to be a month long illness. but now just a geisha in two thousand and twelve found out a fog was poisoned by radioactive talks and palestinians blame israel for his death an accusation israel has strongly denied but here in gaza they still want answers. at the moment i believe that arafat was assassinated and i demand to investigate his death and find the criminals. who are out of the us about one hundred we all came children and women young and old people from all over gaza to commemorate
a symbol of the palestinian cause across the surface i am and started seeing us out of our fight is a symbol of free people all over the world i think all revolutionaries should commemorate this anniversary with the recent reconciliation of fatah and hamas the onus is now on the current leaders to deliver on the long held hope of a palestinian state. plus one to come here at al-jazeera including the mass grave of suspected arson victims have been discovered in northern iraq will be live in baghdad plus. i mean probably on the turnaround of one of germany's most industrialized cities it's led to becoming this year's european green capital .
it's ending call and now for some of us across europe there when the feeding down from the north you can see them a working their way down behind this area of low pressure there and as they do say they're bringing in that cool and fresh air and there's more still to come say four degrees is the maximum temperature there in stock and any around five in warsaw towards the west is mild if an hour but it's a roll of the dump and if this cloud of rain swings down towards the south it'll turn cooler behind it as well so london on monday will only be getting to eighteen for paris well anyway getting to know. in that area of town right hasn't moved very far it's here stretching across the alps and all the way up towards moscow there and many of us are going to see a fair amount of snow on that nor the nature to the south that's where we'll be seeing the rain but again some of that is going to be very heavy somewhat weather is also affecting us a bit further south as well stretching from parts of greece that all the way down the courses of the parts of italy and into the northern parts of africa for the far western parts of libya and for some of us in chu musea we can expect to see quite a few shop showers during the date lots of thunder and lightning too and then
that's gradually pushing its way towards the west there was we had through monday say for some of us in algeria we'll also be seeing some rather wet weather and attempt to struggling just to seventeen meanwhile towards the east there will be some cloud around for cairo but still we're up at twenty nine. yards.
time for a second look at the top stories here at al-jazeera the u.s. president donald trump has addressed allegations of russian meddling in last year's election whilst on a visit to vietnam he says while he it sets intelligence assessments moscow did interfere he also accepts the russian president's belief that russia played no part . saudis say t.v. has grown culture video of lebanon's absent prime minister saad hariri meeting king solomon at riyadh airport mr hariri hasn't returned to beirut since unexpectedly announcing his resignation in the saudi capital eight days ago and. tens of thousands of the lingala have monster the thirteenth anniversary of the death of the fall of palestinian leader. yasser arafat organizers permitted the event as
a national day of unity after the recent signing of an agreement by rival parties fatah and hamas. that masquerades containing at least four hundred suspected eisel victims have been found in northern iraq the sites were discovered near a military base close to isis form a stronghold of how we imran khan is a correspondent in the iraqi capital baghdad emraan what more do we know about this grisly discovery. that's absolutely right it's a fairly significant discovery for certainly the families of those victims who want some sort of closure is also going to be very significant for people investigating now what the iraqis are doing is cataloging exactly how many people died rule and they looking at these mass grave sites to try and see exactly how many people are in that particular site now this was in. high school stronghold according to locals
this used to be a military base that i saw turned into an execution ground now this certainly isn't the first mass grave that iraqis have found it probably won't be the last it was a common tactic to scare people into submission and anybody who was in opposition was simply shot and killed and dumped into one of these mass graves i visited a few of these mass grave sites particularly up in single in the north and i have to say they all fairly gruesome places to go what the investigators do is they dig out the bones they catalogue everything and it becomes very stark when you see all of those skeletons. left out in the open with investigators were pouring over them now this is like i say probably not going to be the last one that they find like i said it's an ice and tactic to kill people and bury them in these mass grave sites and as they go into areas that have been cleared like mosul and the outskirts of mosul they're likely to find more of them and this is a process because this is quite a sophisticated process isn't it covering greys and then documenting the contents
of these guys is this a process that the iraqis are doing themselves are they getting outside help. well the iraqis and they getting outside help from a very number of agencies basically professionals who do this for a living but what they're doing is they're really relying on local people who took notes who actually found where the sites where and kept very detailed notes they've handed those over to the iraqi authorities and said look there was this mass grave site that we think is over here the iraqis go and they investigate and certainly when it came to the case of st joe about eighteen months ago it was really the locals who said these are the places that you need to look at so the investigations are continuing it's the locals that are really pushing the intelligence towards iraqis and the international community all right imran khan live in baghdad thank you very much now the united nations and international aid agencies are calling on the saudi led coalition to lift its blockade of yemen to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe the coalition says the closure of yemen's borders is to
stop the movement of arms to hit the rebels from iran but the u.n. says it's bringing millions of people close to the point of salvation maybe on a honda has the latest. her son is desperate to get out of yemen these pills of what's keeping his wife alive her condition requires treatment in egypt but on monday their plans were put on hold when the saudi led coalition imposed a complete blockade from the lend ear and see it was in response to a ballistic missile fired into saudi arabia by humans who three roubles in but not everything is hanging on this treatment it is critical for my wife's life humans national airline says it will resume international flights out of a ports in the southern cities of aden and say your own both of which are operated by the saudi led coalition but that offers little relief for her son and his wife
they live hundreds of kilometers away in the capital sanaa which is part of the sixty percent of tierra tree under the control they must prepare for a dangerous and difficult journey on a road papered with checkpoints run by both sides of the conflict. the who the rebels are backed by iran and troops loyal to former president ali abdullah saleh the saudi led coalition of arab nations joined the war and early two thousand and fifteen launching thousands of the strikes in support of the government the saudi led coalition says it shut down humans borders to stem the flow of arms to the who thiis from iran but the united nations says the blockade has created even greater hardship for millions of yemenis already the poorest country in the region before the war the u.n. says yemen is now in the grip of the world's worst humanitarian crisis around seventeen million people don't have enough to eat every day seven million of them
are on the brink of famine more than two and a half years of war has forced almost three million people from their homes and left yemen's infrastructure in ruins and since april more than two thousand. and people have died in the world's worst outbreak of cholera. hospital staff working in so now say things have never been this bad patients accommodated out on the streets and medical supplies now only trickle in. our sufferings have doubled the shortage of medicine is getting worse and what aid is given out disappears the misery for people here is just getting worse. the u.n. and aid agencies say nothing but a complete lifting of the blockade will do without it they warn human could be just weeks away from the world's worst famine in decades. and al-jazeera. now bahrain has blamed an explosion at an oil pipeline and what it called terrorism
linked to iran it is posted on social media show the fire caused by the explosion in the village of warre happened on friday iran has denied any involvement. hundreds of thousands of pro independence supporters have been rallying in barcelona they are demanding the release of catalan leaders who are in prison for their own in last month's secession bed alone as police say at least seven hundred fifty thousand people took part in the protests this is the largest demonstration since the deposed regional leaders when. the coal mines and steel plants in germany as a rule region have power the country for more than a century but since the industrial hub fell into decline one of its major cities is now looking to tourism to recharge its economy reports from.
his stands a ghostly relic to a time now just one of the largest industrial monuments in europe the silver and coal mine the last miners descended the shaft in one thousand nine hundred six but in this time zone verein was a key cog in the german economic machine for many going underground was a way of life the region was the beating heart of the nation's industry its coal mines and on and steel plants the country for more than one hundred years. this is the largest of the region's disused coal mines and back in the day it employed eight thousand people round the clock producing twenty three thousand tonnes of coal every twenty four hours now it's you know it's go world heritage site and the old coal washing the room. where once machinery thundered and tens of millions of tons of coal were processed now all that impressive curation of the region's history we saw it for people who came from
outside to build one place. to have a window to look in the history of this region beginning at three hundred fifty million years ago when cold starts to exist till today to the present so these days there mining the tourist dollar sees one and a half million visitors a year bringing in more than sixty five million euros. seventy. and i think. like a lot of money. everybody can come here today and just. a process in green space now blankets much of the city's industrial past with here and there a looming reminder this fight back against environmental degradation has led to the e.u. naming the city as a european green capital for two thousand and seventy when.
we are a model for change how to create something when a complete branch of industry breaks away first we are interesting for europe and the rest of the world how if a crisis or evolved a chance and we are now entering a green decade. of course is not all good news despite some major energy companies still being based here local unemployment remains high at nearly eleven percent but there was a time when they were a river was a toxic flow now it's a stunning clean i mean it's with no end of profitable potential by honoring its industrial heritage while shaking off the coal dust and looking to tourism this is start city may just reinvent itself. al-jazeera s. in germany. now a dial made entirely out of recycled ocean plastic and flip flops is being built in kenya it's being assembled using two hundred thousand rays cycled sandals and
twenty five tons of plastic waste has come from the sea once completed it will make history as the first boat built entirely of recycled ocean plastic katherine sawyer has been to sea and. it may look like an ordinary boat being built on the shores of the ocean in lumber along kenya's coast but there's nothing normal about this boat. called bookmakers a building what they call flip floppy using mostly plastic waste and discarded flip flops that often washed up ashore if it works the plan is to eventually build a sixty foot down like this one which is usually built with wood it will sell to south africa with the hope of creating awareness about the devastation brought about by plastic dumped into the ocean it would be a good message to the world because this is a moving object you know people have done different types of recycled things but
this is not one hundred percent everybody sees it but rain is a moving object ridge to many parts. this is one of the cleanest beaches on the coast local residents load trash they've collected for the last two months plastic bottles polythene bags flip flops which will be used to make the boat. the waste ends up in a factory in more than two hundred kilometers away this is where plastic waste is crushed off credit then melted using that machine and molded into planks the dow will need the factory receives trash washed ashore from countries in africa and asia and also rubbish collected locally. getting an end product that is strong and safe to withstand the ocean has been tough we are making the first. nobody's ever made of being out of plastic that's ten meters long no zero point two centimeters
wide twenty five centimeters deep that's a piece of plastic so all we have tried multiple ways of doing it mark what types of materials stabilizers and all kinds of things to make sure it gets better and better. back in. the and his workers give us an idea of how the boat and eventually the dow will look like it will be covered using this colorful print made from war than two hundred thousand used flip flops they say they're not only campaigning against ocean pollution but also for what is a dying culture of traditional making catherine soy al jazeera on the kenyan coast . traverses take a look at the top stories here at al-jazeera the u.s. president donald trump has addressed allegations of russian meddling in last year's
election while on a visit to vietnam he says while he accepts intelligence assessments moscow did interfere he also accepts the russian president's belief that russia played no part i believe very much in our intelligence agencies now at the same time. i want to be able because i think it's very important to get along with russia to get along with china to get along with vietnam to get along with lots of countries because we have a lot of things we have to sell i believe that president putin really feels and he feels strongly that he did not meddle in our election. what he believes is what he believes what i believe is that we have to get to work saudi television has brokers new video of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri meeting king solomon and riyadh airport is just the third time mr hariri has been seen since he unexpectedly
