japan as the u.s. military is accused of not doing enough to contain a corona virus outbreak at its bases. across the surveillance operation in colombia that journalists say is a threat to democracy. china is valid in retaliation after moves by the governments of the u.s. and the u.k. on 2 different fronts president donald trump has announced sanctions against chinese officials over the new national security law imposed on hong kong signing an executive order to hold beijing accountable china now says it will impose sanctions of its own. joan phones don't to to be able to up hold our legitimate interests in china will make the necessary responses to sanction the relevant personnel and entities of the us side we're just the us to correct their mistakes and to not implement this act and stop interfering in china's internal affairs if
11:02 am
the u.s. insists on going down the wrong path china will definitely hit back hong kong is being stripped of its special trade and economic status and banks that deal with some chinese officials will also face sanctions the hong kong or tanami act which has signed this afternoon passed unanimously through congress this law gives my administration powerful new tools to hold responsible the individuals in the entities involved in extinguishing hong kong's freedom we've all watch what happened not a good situation their freedoms been taken away their rights have been taken away and with it goes on going in my opinion because it will no longer be able to compete with free markets and had the u.k. announced it was banning chinese tech giant huawei from being involved in the development of its new high speed my bomb that were exciting concerns about security well we can speak now to katrina our correspondent she joins us from
11:03 am
beijing katrina i want to start with huawei because this is really quite the reversal here what's beijing had to say about. well we just heard from quaternion who is china's foreign ministry spokesperson she had quite strong was she said that the u.k. was cool looting with the u.s. to oppress chinese companies she also said that this was an act of discrimination against chinese companies that the u.k. is failing to lord to uphold its commitment to china and to huawei and also said that this is in effect destroying or damaging the relationship between london and they joining and the u.k. government should listen to the voices in the u.k. business community who are against this move because it will be british businesses and the british people alternately who will suffer from this now she was also also she agrees with the global times editorial which is the state media newspaper here which quite strongly attacked the u.k. saying that the u.k.
11:04 am
was a weak link when it came to the different 5 eyes allied countries and saying that china should not worry too much although this is a blow but it also mentioned that china should retaliate strongly because otherwise it would send the wrong message that other countries can go ahead and bully china now there was no would have specific retaliation from quaternion but she didn't mention that chinese businesses who do trade or investment with the u.k. should reconsider doing business because of the risky environment over there let's have a listen to more of what watching you had to say and that. usually this is about the u.k. at all costs politicizing commercial and technology issues this is about china facing major threats in its investment security in the u.k. and it's about our confidence in whether the u.k. markets can remain open fair and nondiscriminatory so we will comprehensively and seriously evaluate this and will take all necessary measures to safeguard our
11:05 am
companies interests and rights and katrina as we've been saying a dramatic but not unexpected escalation when it comes to tensions with the u.s. over hong kong what else is beijing threatening here. that's right this diplomatic relationship with washington seems to be in freefall quaternion took aim at the u.s. as well and she said she course that if the u.s. really wants to stir up trouble let the storm rage with grace of force or it seems like the beijing government is not going to back down when it comes to any maneuverable move from the u.s. she said that the u.s. was a troublemaker and she called its unilateral sanctions pathetic and then she went on to reflect an earlier statement from china's foreign ministry saying that the u.s. was in effect slandering this hong kong national security law that it should stop meddling in china's internal affairs that should step back from this because this is what china wants of china believes is good for hong kong it's good for its spera
11:06 am
t. its stability and this is what is welcomed and accepted by the hong kong people of course the disconnect that not all hong kong believe that at all but then she went on to repeat the stance that this is not going to affect the majority of businesses a law abiding people in hong kong that this will only impact the troublemakers then she said also that china is not going to stand for this that it is going to take its own counter measures in the form of sanctions against u.s. officials and press now although we haven't been provided with any details as to what shape those will take as yet katrina you there in the chinese capital beijing for us thank you very much katrina well speaking of divergent views let's now get the view from hong kong devika poland joins us from there i want to talk about this special status talk us through what the removal of that actually means and we're already starting to see an exodus of businesses. indeed but much of the that accidents that we have seen so far has to do with that
11:07 am
national security law that was imposed by beijing on july 1st without any consultation with hong kong government or hong kong people but i need to say that the main reason that this current move was made by the us is because of that national security law again i have to catch me at it by saying that this move by the us for the human rights and democracy act and true strip hong kong of that special status was the law before and spearheaded by hong kong's protesters including joshua long and many of the pro-democracy camp so this is seen as a result of a hong kong's pro-democracy camp calling for more accountability to people in beijing and hong kong officials who are seen as not to or violating hong kong's autonomous system and stripping hong kong for their of its rights and freedoms as far as impact goes so far an analyst says there will be some kind of an economic
11:08 am
impact although many companies had already factored that in due to the fact that this had been weeks in the making until president trump signed it today but according to hong kong a financial secretary to the u.s. that has more to lose hong kong is the u.s. his biggest trading surplus partner in a single economy which means that the u.s. will be on the back foot when it comes to trade with hong kong after this particularly if american companies pull out but hong kong too is concerned due to the fact that this will affect business confidence and there's basically confidence in the political environment so companies like the new york times has already said today itself that it is going to pull out a large number of its staff and move over to seoul and there's concern many other media companies would follow suit and other international companies will also consider thinking about this and they pro-democracy can push for this we have been hearing from them over the last hour or so what if they had to say today.
11:09 am
that's right joshua long and many proponents of the pro-democracy camp and i have to say that it is mostly the younger democracy candidates the protesters from last year all held a press conference on the back of this primary elections that were held over this weekend which had a remarkable turnout of around 600000 people what the democracy camp and democracy activists were hoping to do is consolidate their support base by asking the people to choose who would best represent them in the legislative council elections in september and as it turns out the result was that those younger younger candidates those that were involved in last year's protests and perhaps those that are more radical are the ones who seem to have gotten the most support and joshua won did speak and i give a press conference saying that this is definitely a sign and a message to beijing that the younger demo democracy camp will not stand down in
11:10 am
the face of threats of this national security law and from the government here's what he had to say. it's a little voice being heard in this little collision with another shrink in fact faking which is not to surrender at 3 days. from the protest at the press conference and raised the hope to have an old discussion close to a lot of candidates in the primary election to last through the traditional protocol credit how well the crackdown from beijing with no room and we have it from an asian it's time for us to and. now i must say that although this is seen somewhat of a victory particularly for the younger protesters there are those who are trying to get into politics there is an issue of the fact that the old democracy guard the older lawmakers and such have been pushed out those that may have been more
11:11 am
attractive to beijing and more moderates in attracted to hong kong government and there is also a risk that many of these new candidates including joshua long could be pushed out eventually or disqualified will be watching the lead up to those elections very closely indeed david there for us on the ground in hong kong thank you jeff. now fighting on the border between mania and as a by john has now killed 13 soldiers on both sides and at least one civilian tension has remained fastens the former soviet republics went to war over the disputed region of nagano carava in the 1990 s. robin foster walka reports i in the is very capital crowds demanded vengeance for a major general the most senior servicemen to have died in clashes on azerbaijan's border with armenia only just very. unlike the enemy our generals and officers do not hide behind the backs of soldiers they adequately carry out their
11:12 am
combat missions unfortunately battles are not without losses. both sides accuse each other of starting the latest hostilities. both sides releasing videos of their high tech weaponry as ery missile strikes on armenian positions. armenians shooting down azeri drones. 'd or wal-mart the fighting which began on sunday has so far claimed more than a dozen lives including at least one civilian what i think many many say you know with whole story of them going question is where's the very area that sleeper created by significant religious are like and it's right next to the military train or between that and was extremely important because it enough are the 1st one to suffer
11:13 am
a problem that all glory in our military activities. the region is situated north of the disputed territory of the goanna kyra back internationally recognized as part of azerbaijan it's controlled by armenian forces how to go to think in the armenian prime minister has accused as a by john. the danger in regional stability as a by jones president says international peace talks have led nowhere. there is a risk of a wider conflict if the fighting continues turkey says its stance with. russia which brokered a cease fire in the past may be needed once again to bring the 2 sides back from the brink of adversity a walker al-jazeera. hostile ahead here on al-jazeera trashing india's high school full of us why some are questioning the government's my teds. and why glenn

11:22 am
as well as the government's crackdown on dissent which has people questioning the motion of the changes. which makes all of us already suspicious that you know. that you know all the. talk about democracy understanding all of. that is being discarded. for the young minds interested in those ideas have to be fostered at home now elizabeth al-jazeera you daddy. flash flooding on the indonesian island of pseudo westie has killed at least 16 people dozens of others a missing and thousands of homes have been destroyed in north through heavy rain triggered landslides burying buildings and roads and mud around 2000 islanders are now in temporary shelters and flooding in northeast india has killed at least 77 people 2000000 indians and some state have been forced from their homes during 2

11:29 am
risk of flight but after more than 2 hours of proceedings the judge eventually sided with the prosecution legal observers believe that in exchange for a lighter sentence the prosecutors would push maxwell to review all she knows about epstein's alleged crimes and that could include more details on britain's prince andrew a friend to both maxwell and epstein for years and who visited epstein several times in new york palm beach florida and the virgin islands the prince has denied any wrongdoing and so far refused to cooperate with prosecutors angering lawyers for the victims because he is a member of the royal family he has something that is called sovereign immunity even in his own country from prosecution so it's unlikely he would ever be prosecuted individually but if he had any moral character whatsoever he would at the very least step forward to give evidence about what he has seen over
11:30 am
