1:02 pm
month al-jazeera is my kind of reports for washington in recent days a number of members of congress have demanded that muhammad been solid month be held accountable either by way of tweets or in the case of senator bob corker during a debate about yemen in the senate passed for a level briefing with matters peo and you know i asked paul to come in as soon as we get back to share with us what is happening with saudi arabia on both fronts both yemen and what is happening as it relates to the journalist who was assassinated in my opinion at the direction of the crown prince of saudi arabia now the washington post reports the cia has concluded that the saudi crown prince ordered the assassination of journalist jamal khashoggi this it says according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity. the report says in reaching its conclusions the cia examined multiple sources of intelligence
1:03 pm
including a phone call that the crown prince's brother and ambassador to the u.s. had with the journalist before his murder khalid bin solomon was quick to deny the allegation saying on twitter i never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to turkey for any reason i asked the u.s. government to release any information regarding this claim within hours several other news organizations including the new york times and the wall street journal were also quoting anonymous officials confirming the report of the cia's finding although it is very important it's very significant that what the washington post in new york times. c m b c n n other outlets over the last hours. reported that the cia an internal assessment now is pointing straight years.
1:04 pm
in so much as having ordered this operation this has never happened before in the cia will probably will not comment on this kind of report however the washington post wouldn't report this unless they were accurately reporting where they believe the cia said so which is a slight nuance now one can anticipate that the congressional oversight committees will have been briefed or demand to be briefed on this report's alleging muhammad have been solomon's involvement unlikely to field even though the congressional demands that punitive measures be taken against the crown prince and his government . the question is whether the president has been briefed by the cia on its reported conclusions and if so whether he would be prepared to back away from his stated reluctance to take action against the saudi government and its leaders mike hanna
1:05 pm
al-jazeera washington let's go live now to istanbul i was is andrew symonds outside the saudi consulate there and you're we're hearing then that there are even more suggestions that this was premeditated what can you tell us. that's right i mean this is a seismic development this whole revelation by the washington post and the avalanche of other revelations from other publications in the united states and now we have another point towards the top to point towards an organized operation a state sponsored operation to jamal khashoggi ordered by mohammed bin solomon now what we've hearing here is that the there has been an assertion from investigators and the prosecution service of the needles we used to coagulate the blood in his body this is after he died it was
1:06 pm
a really detailed process to make sure his blood was plotted before the whole operation began to dismember his body to reduce the amount of blood stains to make it a cleaner sort of operation to do now that took place there sure off and also a lot of samples were taken here in the consulate and also in the consul general z. residence there by and also a house in each because turkish investigators had tapped the phone of one of the fifteen involved in the operation here and that led to that house and they searched the house they got no d.n.a. traces there and they got no d.n.a. traces either of the buildings here it's because there was such a code loss will clean up operation taking place from the saudis so again these are all indicates is that this was a highly organized murder operation and
1:07 pm
a clearance operation and a cover up adrian as you said under there's no doubt that this cia assessment has been one of the biggest developments in this case how important though has the turkish investigation been in the cia reaching their assessment. extremely important and everything really goes back to the tapes the tapes and there isn't just one of them another tape that has shown only in the past twenty four hours conclusively that the team got together ahead of khashoggi arriving at the consulates and they were heard just discussing how they would kill that target and if you turn the clock backwards to when the saudis first announced they first admitted that because shoji had died and then they started off with their story that it was all something of a mistake there are two particular names that come to mind but siri who is the
1:08 pm
deputy head of intelligence he was blamed for organizing things and then also another important name has sold tani who is a very close aide to mohammed bin solomon now we look at this figure for one reason in that he was one of the eighteen who were announced as suspects from the very outset by the saudi arabia but we've hear this from good sources that he has not been detained he's been free to really do carry on with his job even though officially he's been sacked from it so he's still possibly been advising mohammed bin salmond and of course the americans have listed seventeen people for their for their the moves that taking for their sanctions that don't include him so we have here a trace of events that goes on to this new series of of suggestions from the saudis which difficult plea from not an involved five death sentence is being called for
1:09 pm
for the five main suspects so it's total change in narration which is in conflict with most of the turkish evidence and how many thanks indeed let's go live now to our turkey's capital ankara al-jazeera sin and cos the owner was there some turkey then keeping the pressure up on saudi arabia to explain honestly once and for all who ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi and we expect to hear from president want any time soon after these u.s. media reports of the cia's conclusions. well the cia reports actually explains what president don would like to hear and has been repeating since the beginning of this case as a personal defender of the case as a side today he is scheduled to speak in a stumble in the late afternoon. but we are not informed whether he's going to be speaking about to or not but we are expecting that he would have some words just
1:10 pm
because last night president don and the u.s. president donald trump had a phone call and the call came from the u.s. side according to the presidential sources along with many by lay troll issues and topics they discussed a lot about jamal khashoggi investigation case as far as we are informed so and today while he was speaking to some turkish people in an opening he might be speaking as well but another detail is that turkey's foreign minister made which i was told is flying to united states today to attend in the u.n. u.n. civilization's alliance conference on monday and he's expected to meet with the u.s. contra part my compare and they will be discussing about the details of jamal khashoggi case again along with some other topics between the two countries but one thing turkish officials are concerned about the saudis that they have been receiving some intelligence that the saudis are planning to frame some turkish officials as
1:11 pm
a suspect in their investigation case this is this is what the official the political circles are discussing in ankara right now or it's that many thanks indeed to us and of course you there in ankara let's take a moment to remind you of events leading up to the murder starting on september twenty eighth that's when jamal khashoggi made a visit to the saudi consulate in istanbul and was invited to return to serious money on a home reportage. soon after jamal khashoggi leaves the saudi consulate this man. a saudi attention istanbul reportedly leaves two he flies to riyadh returning two days later on october the first a group of officials then travel from the saudi consulate to a forest on the outskirts of a stand bill and to the nearby city of yellow over on what the turkish president says was a reconnaissance mission police sources say. is among them at about three fifteen

1:14 pm
of the private jets departs from riyadh no sign of. and still no sign of his body but because she is a former washington post reporter and senior lecturer at lancaster university he joins us now via skype from lancaster robot could tell you with us let's get something out of the way straight away the credibility of these u.s. media reports quoting as they they are the washington post anonymous sources within the cia the timing of them as well coming out late on a friday night just how credible are they well there's always this kind of phrase that you throw things out in the trash on fridays on capitol hill meaning you bring things out at the end of the week when it's the weekend and people are necessarily at the water cooler talk about these things but that doesn't necessarily mean that the recorder is not credible it certainly is coming from the cia and the washington post there's
1:15 pm
a very good job of vetting its sources they need to get very seriously when they use anonymous sources but it it's coming after the midterm elections first of all in the united states and they've been coming out on the weekend certainly does seem to indicate what type of priority for the ministration so what happens now will president trump be forced to take more punitive action against the crown prince. well you know this story had to come to an end. it had to be completed at some point and. this sort of this sort of response from the c.i. a coming out on a weekend and coming out after the midterm elections there is really anything that's holding trump to the fire here there's there doesn't seem to be a huge uprising in the united states that a journalist from saudi arabia from america has been murdered potentially and it sure seems by the direction of a head of state where this doesn't seem to be
1:16 pm
a big issue for the american public but it is quite concerning that that the trumpet ministration has been pushing off any sort of responsibility to those higher levels of authority and instead saying this was kind of a business deal gone wrong so is the president likely to think to dismiss these reports i mean he must have been given a briefing by the cia on its conclusions right. well you know that's one of the questions is what has he known about this infer how lont very few elites hire unintentional this image information that came out about we could these julian assange is this week that said it was released accidentally that the u.s. was going to seek to prosecute him now that wasn't necessarily a mistake these things are planned they're discussed and so the question is how long has you known these things certainly. has has had you know what the rest of us
1:17 pm
know that there is some suspicious activity going going on here a lot more than he's given credit to to those of us who know that there that something bad happened all right and it was intentional it wasn't a mistake it was it was it was covered up you say that there's no one holding the president's feet to the fire right now what about a congress congress this is unlike any let this issue go it's going to demand more punitive measures and can the president ignore those congressional demands. well i think that's right you know the house now has more has more control by democrats and so those those in the house might might find this just an opportunity to embarrass or to get at donald trump and in some ways and certainly we have seen some sanctions taken by the united states government so it's not that it's been completely ignored but certainly as a person living abroad myself and as a journalist and brother journalists across the world as well as dissidents you are
1:18 pm
doing things but then there are human rights to speak out. you know stop being stuff and some sort of fuel supplies and dealing with with these out is just doesn't seem to be a very hard line approach to protecting those who are using the freedoms of the united states at least to express themselves into a hold of democracy even in parts of the world where democracy may not exist robert good to talk to many thanks indeed robert could see that in lancaster this is that he is out from out as there are still to come on the program. just like to kind of ghost. as the fighting continues in yemen at the humanitarian situation deteriorates there a glimmer of hope that warring parties may be willing to talk. the most cooperation on show at the apec summit china attacks president trump's america first policy of the u.s. defends trade tariffs against beijing. that is sport of debut for this philadelphia

1:27 pm
movement we've seen marine le pen from the far right shoulder shone from the far left for in that support behind this protest movement some of the politicians and political parties don't quite know what to make of it on the one hand they want to show that they support the concerns of ordinary people but at the same time want to show that they are supporting the need to protect the environment as well but micro knows that his popularity has been sliding in the polls recently he cannot afford for this grassroots movement to snowball any further he cannot afford to lose any more support may have many thanks indeed i was there is need back of that live in paris in just a few moments on that is our meteorologist rob mccallum he will be here with an update tough for us then. getting heat from all sides of colombia's president reaches one hundred days in office his reforms facing widespread criticism. and its support will have to latest from the rally of australia sebastian it's closing in

the past heah. china's president is hitting out at u.s. trade tariffs and says that protectionist actions are shortsighted and doomed to fail she's in ping's been speaking in papua new guinea at the opening of the apec summit the twenty one members of the asia pacific economic cooperation aimed to improve. and trade but the world's two largest economies the u.s. and china have imposed sanctions on each other's exports donald trump is staying away from the summit. resorting to old practices such as protectionism unilateralism will not resolve problems but also adds the uncertainties to the global economy and history tells us taking the road of confrontation whether in the form of a cold war open war or trade war will produce no win it out zero as andrew thomas reports now from port moresby. the sea in apex stands for cooperation but there was less cooperation on display in the early speeches than the was regional competition
1:33 pm
particularly in the speeches of president g. of china and mike pence the vice president of the united states both those speeches were really a list of criticisms of the policies of the other country president g. was particularly focused on donald trump's tariff policies he said that trade wars only have losers and he called for tariffs to be wound down for his part my parents used his speech to criticize china's loans across countries in the asia pacific region saying those loans come with strings attached pointedly he said that u.s. loans don't come with a constricting belt or a one way road that is a very direct jab at china's belt and road initiative which sees that country investing heavily in other countries right around the world will be a dinner for all the leaders late on saturday and then on sunday the main summit talks begin but it's those bilateral meetings on the sidelines that will tell us as much about the regional politics of this part of the world as anything official
1:34 pm
announced was fine gold as a political risk analyst focusing on asia as he joins us now via skype from taipei good to have you with us ross what's going on with a pick right now is it still i mean has it ever been a cohesive grouping is this just a gentle spat between friends or is it unraveling. well we have to keep in mind apec is always existed as a forum for discussion it's not a trade agreement it's not a place where treaties are discussed modified or entered into it really is a platform where the leaders of the twenty one member economies can discuss business facilitation issues how to reduce red tape bureaucracy customs challenges when goods are entering the various member economies so we don't always have a somewhat limited purpose and that's why sometimes leaders choose not to attend when they have other pressing domestic needs in their countries all right so
1:35 pm
machine ping is that donald trump is known as it but you said there are reasons why but i mean it has this happened before the number of high profile leaders have decided they're not going to move the to attend it's not unusual for the u.s. president or the russian president to not attend it's not the first time for either or leader and in the case of xi jinping and donald trump they did have a productive teleconference a few weeks ago they agreed to meet at the becoming plenty so that kind of reduced the need for them to meet in person or on the importance of donald trump in there of an meeting at apec because they plan to have a one on one meeting at the upcoming g twenty and in fact china has submitted a proposal not accepted by the u.s. but china has submitted a proposal to reduce some of the trade disagreements it's a start to discussions that will continue at the g. twenty so again the two leaders not meeting at apac it's probably not have going to any act on the biological u.s.
1:36 pm
china trade agenda how do you say that that that trade will between the u.s. and china playing out across. well china is making moves to try and offer concessions to the united states they're worried that the existing high tariffs are going to be raised even higher come january and that the additional tranche of goods that president trump has has identified the balance of trade also for its power absolute or certainly have a deadline looming and both sides want to reach an agreement it's clear that president trump likes to reach agreements where the other side offers concessions so that he can sell it as a victory to domestic stakeholders in the united states and happen with south korea it happen with mexico and canada so if china could offer some concessions there is room for the two sides to agree at least on the trade issues book i think that there are numerous other issues between china and the united states besides trade that won't be part of any trade agreements goods to spend thanks indeed
