actually partly responsible for the spike accusing him of lifting measures in june to hold elections which he then wanted to set out sunni colleges in belgrade he says police have managed to clear most of the protesters from the streets. we could say that the police was better prepared tonight than they were the last last night yesterday so they had a better tactics tonight so they sort of attack the demonstrators they try to disperse them around the national assembly because it's bigger than the truth or is he thousands of few 1000 of them gathered in front of the national assembly and they hold them away through the surrounding streets so they may have sort of a small pockets of demonstrators around the national assembly does making them easier to remove them a free to roam the streets so most of the demonstrators went home and there is nobody in the streets but there is also still a group of demonstrators some i don't know 500 meters away from the national
assembly in front of them it is a huge amount of police who they there know in some kind of a standoff. the police is a strong units of police special and there is the unit of of police of serbia join their merry regular police cavalry they're all at that side for the last i don't know hour or so they're having sort of small clashes at some points the demonstrators would go towards the police then the police would the respond to the those clashes and that's that the situation at this point but most of all of the demonstrators are now all of the streets. the united nations secretary general says the conflict in libya has entered a new phase in
a fertile session of the security council. condemned foreign interference in the fighting saying that breached unprecedented levels our diplomatic editor james space has more from the u.n. headquarters in new york. 2020 was the year the un and the international community said they would bring peace to libya instead violence has intensified with repeated war crimes mass graves and civilian casualties there are new risks as well as opportunities for peace now that general have to force is being pushed all the way to sirte time is not on our side in libya the conflict is and the new phase is foreign interference reaching and dissident levels including in the delivery of sophisticated equipment and the number of mercenaries involved in the fighting. germany has been leading international efforts in january it pulled together key players at
a conference in perlin germany now has the presidency of both the e.u. and of the un security council to its foreign ministers blunt some of the countries who signed up to the burning communique 6 months ago agree undermining it ever since with their actions foreign interference in may and the main driver of the conflict in libya it must be projects to an end that means no more plaints no more tanks no more trucks or cargo ships full of weapons and no more lice. so we'll those directly involved in libya now back down representatives of russia egypt and the united arab emirates said they support the u.n. position even though they're widely believed to parent general have to militarily france is a growing strategic partnership with the u.a.e.
and was strongly critical of fellow nato member turkey supporter of the government of national. the problem is this reporter's of general haftar know he's now in a much we can position and they may want to bolster his military standing before any negotiations on the other side supporters of the government of national accord no battle with half the insert would be very bloody but after that there be an open road to the part of libya where much of the country's oil infrastructure is based james is iraq at the united nations libya's internationally backed government says it's found a prison used by warlords half therof to torture opponents that discovery was made in the city of that huna government leaders in tripoli are calling on the united nations to investigate mass graves found near the prison it sought the torture victims were buried there by half the us forces. human rights watch says

from washington d.c. so what do we know about their meeting mike well it was very very amicable indeed the 2 leaders signed the u.s. and the a trade agreement which replaces nafta it came into effect on the 1st of this month however now it has been formally signed by the 2 leaders and this was the main reason for this meeting that would have to actually get this deal formally signed but certainly the differences that have been there in the pos between mexico and the u.s. work for the moment at least forgotten and it was a tone of respect and a tone of genuine liking for each other it would appear and this is what each of the leaders at to say the relationship between the united states and mexico has never been closer than it is right now and as the president said a little while ago people were betting against that they were actually betting
against it. but it's never been stronger never been closer to doing tremendous job together we're cherished friends partners and neighbors are cooperation is founded on mutual trust and mutual respect between the 2 of us and between our 2 countries . yes but. i decided to come because it was very important for us to launch this new agreement but i also wanted to thank the people of the u.s. government and you know president trolley for being increasingly respectful of our fellow mexicans and for your personal support in acquiring medical equipment to treat coronavirus patients. that's why i'm here to express to the american people that their president has treated us with kindness and respect long live the friendship of our 2 nations. and my considering all the criticism that the president the president topis facing due to his handling of the coronavirus pandemic in the us does he need this for his election not just
a pragmatic side but also just some kind of coup when it comes to international relations and his standing with other foreign leaders. well certainly there's an element of that president trying to make much of his previous international visit there's only been 2 since the advent of the pandemic and this is part of that clearly showing that he can still do diplomacy in the midst of the ongoing pandemic one which he continues to attempt to play down this is part of their process but also there is a real element to it as i said as well the trade deal between u.s. and mexico absolutely critical for mexico in particular and the threats that president trump made in terms of suspending that deal just a year ago one of the reasons why the president was over the door came to the united states on his 1st international trip trade for mexico with the united states is absolutely essential but on that note i must point out that the trade agreement
itself or the level of trade between the 2 countries has dropped significantly over the last year measured made to may trade between the u.s. and mexico is down by some 54 percent there's been a 92 percent drop in terms of mexican vehicle parts exported to the united states so certainly despite the fanfare around this trade deal the meeting that took place and will continue into the evening with a state dinner the trade situation is of great concern to both countries at this particular point in time i can now with the latest from washington d.c. mike thank you. still ahead in this half hour out to help out the u.k. offers half price restaurant meals to kick start its economy rescued from rising floodwaters heavy rain causes chaos and large swathes of china and japan.
