states are down the trade surplus that the chinese have with the united states grew in the month of june to almost $30000000000.00 so no doubt that will be discussed if those negotiations face to face negotiations do restart as expected possibly in china within the next couple of weeks one of the most concerning numbers for the overall chinese economy to be released is that imports from all countries a down 7.3 percent and that is being blamed on weak domestic demand colombia's president has asked a u.n. to keep supervising its peace agreement with gravels the 2016 accord ended the world's longest running armed conflicts it included land reforms and programs to bring fighters back to civilian life but as i listened to reports from the coca region in southwestern colombia the reforms have mostly stalled. heartbroke. in

and watching al-jazeera live from doha with me fully back to also ahead how to purchase a russian missile system is rocking its relationship with the u.s. . undocumented migrants clash with police in paris as they demand talks with the french prime minister and donald trump's labor secretary resigns over a scandal surrounding a u.s. business men accused of sexually abusing young girls. so the u.s. house has voted to prohibit the sale of some munitions to saudi arabia and the united arab emirates for one year these weapons are the ones being used in the war in yemen house democrat tom money noffs key proposed yemen meant and auggie it forward on the house for a short time ago. all it will do is stop something that is categorically harmful to
our national interest the provision of off fence of weapons that enable saudi arabia to keep defying our advice by bombing yemen and prolonging the war there there's a reason why people say that this war has caused the world's worst humanitarian crisis more than 200000 civilians have been killed or died of starvation while the who these are to blame for much of this saudi and u.a.e. airstrikes are responsible for 2 thirds of yemeni civilian casualties there was a strike on a funeral more than $150.00 civilians killed a strike on a school bus that killed 40 kids on a save the children hospital on a wedding these were not mistakes these were deliberate and precise attacks and everybody in yemen knows that the bombs causing this suffering are made in the united states as speak to game elizondo in washington d.c. for a sum game what does this amendment mean exactly. well it means that the
u.s. would halt any sort of munitions being sold to saudi arabia or the u.a.e. as you mentioned for one year these munitions that are used in the war on yemen and that it would be munitions that are air to ground munitions so it's not necessarily everything it does not necessarily mean stopping all arms sales to saudi arabia that is not what it means but this is still very significant as you just heard from congressman tom malinowski because it did pass the house of representatives on friday the vote was 236 in favor of this amendment 182 against it it mostly went along party lines with democrats voting for it mostly republicans voting against it however 5 republicans did vote yes for this amendment as well now tom malinowski is a democrat 1st year congressman from the state of new jersey but he is significant
that it come that this amendment comes from him because before being a congressman he worked in the state department and under president barack obama he was actually an assistant secretary of state for democracy and human rights so this is a man that has very wide experience in diplomacy in the international arena so it's significant that it comes from him as well just the process here is important this is just one of several different amendments that were put forth on friday for the general national defense authorization bill which is the bill that's a very normal thing that's basically the u.s. government deciding how much money they're going to give to the defense the pentagon every year the house lawmakers in the house are able to offer up amendments that they want to see this was this key amendment they were just talking about here halting these munitions sales to saudi arabia but this does not mean it will go into effect immediately the senate has already voted on their version of this defense off there is
a. bill with their own amendments and now what's going to happen and this is very important process here is the senate and the house will have to come together and come up with a compromise bill in the coming days and weeks and that's when we'll know if this particular amendment gets in the compromise bill but clearly very significant development on friday by this amendment that was passed by the house of representatives thank you very much for that gabriel is on the line for us in washington now as part of the same bill the house also voted to require president to get congressional permission before he launches any attack on iran the senate rejected a similar measure last month but will now have to negotiate with the house over its inclusion in a larger defense bill the 251-2170 vote was unusually bipartisan with $27.00 republicans joining all but a handful of democrats in support and its sponsors are one of the house's most liberal democrats and one of its most conservative republicans the amendment is
also backed by an unusual coalition of left and right wing lobbying groups well let's speak to lawrence korb who is a senior fellow at the center for american progress and a former u.s. assistant secretary of defense he is live from washington d.c. thank you very much for being with us so 2 votes a real challenge to the administration want to sales and the other on war powers and iran how significant are these and how big of a blow could this be for the trumpet ministration. well they are significant because even though the saudi arms sales was passed by a closer vote the fact of the matter is the senate has already passed a bill on that a couple of months ago where president vetoed it was a standalone no bill so i think that has a pretty good chance of getting in as is having talked about the compromise between the house and the senate the other vote i think about going to war with iran
a is very very significant because even most republicans do not want to see another war in the middle east given what happened with our row war in iraq and they don't want trump to do it without checking with the congress which means they'll have a chance to debate about whether it makes sense in addition to that they also repealed the authorization for the war against iraq in 2002 because there were afraid the president might use that to go against iran by saying well iran has forces in iraq the senate has already rejected both of these measures are they likely to make it into the final bill that the 2 parts of congress still have to negotiate a thing. well they will because the senate is going to have to give on something i mean you have the senate bill in the house bill and then because what this does is
it funds the pentagon and if this bill doesn't pass we'll have another government shutdown which i don't think they want so i think they may be willing to give on some of these issues and as i say you do a couple of months ago the senate did pass a bill which strong vetoed about providing arms to the saudis and the and the u.a.e. so i think that has a chance of making it into the final bill but obviously nothing is set until they really do get a bill right and if it did make it all the way to the president's desk what would happen you think would he veto it or well the president could veto it but if he vetoes it then the pentagon runs out of money because the pentagon is only funded through the end of september and we're in the summer time now congress is going to be off from the 1st week of august to the labor day so there's not going to be you know much time so if president trump does veto it then of course he'll be faced
with another government shutdown and when we had one last january he says he took most of the blame for it thank you so much for speaking to us lawrence korb a senior fellow at the center for american progress joining us now from washington thank you for your insights. police in gibraltar have released all 4 crew members of any raney an oil tanker seized last week the ship was detained by british forces on suspicion of taking more oil to syria in breach of e.u. sanctions all 4 were released on bail without charge turkey says its defense minister has spoken to his u.s. counterpart on the phone to discuss the nation's controversial purchase of the russian s 400 missile defense system lucianne car reportedly told mark esper that the deal does not mean turkey is changing its strategic direction the 1st delivery was flown into the mo ted air base near the capital ankara with several more scheduled over the next few days the u.s. is ready to impose sanctions it's also threatening to stop supplying turkey with

concerned about the potential consequences purchase while washington has vowed to impose sanctions if that's $400.00 ever become operational. for turkey this is a done deal despite a possible setback for its defense industries that's what earn up to $12000000000.00 from their $35.00 program. said to be fierce to the s 400 is a temporary solution to turkey's immediate need for air defense but we have many partnerships of the u.s. in f. 35 and other defense industries that are vital for us because the engines of the helicopters fighter jets we produce are u.s. made no one would desire any battle these imports. the list of possible u.s. sanctions ranjan servility and include cutting turkey off from american and international loans preventing its transactions on foreign exchanges and targeting turkish banks businesses and executives took a series of tools the russian system because those for hundreds were more
