now al-jazeera is investigative unit goes undercover to expose for the revelations that go to the heart of the cypriot state and just 0 investigations the cyprus papers on the cover. al-jazeera. hello i'm right about this and this is the news our live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes media and azerbaijan accuse each other of violating a cease fire. within minutes of the truce coming into effect. taiwan's president calls for dialogue with china and a national day speech but warns it should be on equal terms. and warnings of pandemic fatigue as several countries report record levels of new corona virus
1:01 pm
infections. and 2 weeks after hosting a so-called super spreader event donald trump is set to host hundreds of supporters at the white house in his 1st public appearance since contract in the disease. i'm going to get your oscar with your sports jamie butler puts in a performance when he vacation at the miami heat beat the l.a. lakers to keep the n.b.a. final say reason light. but it's only been in force for a couple of hours but already armenia and azerbaijan a recusing each other of violating a cease fire that is featured region of normal how to block the truce was announced by russia on friday following 10 hours of talks and evolves exchanging prisoners and the bodies of those killed in the conflict hundreds of people have died since fighting flared up at the end of last month. well armenia and azerbaijan went to war over going to qana but between 19911994 now the contested region is
1:02 pm
internationally recognized as part of azerbaijan but the majority of the people living in these red areas are ethnic armenian these parts are controlled by armenian forces many as there is were displaced during the war in the 1990 s. the so-called line of contact separates armenian forces is the line in green here now the majority of fighting has been happening on either side of that line now we're going to get the latest from sin and cos you know in tathagata azerbaijan 1st let's speak to bernard smith who's in stockholm accounts in there going back. just to tell him talk us through what the reaction has been there in the hours just after the announcement of this is fine. well rob the foreign minister of manias zora. he said
1:03 pm
that the process of achieving the cease fire was rather difficult he called it the local media in armenia and he's calling it a humanitarian ceasefire essentially established to allow the exchange of prisoners and to allow the exchange of bodies between the militaries of both sides but the form is that the profit priority for us was to put an end to what he called this aggression and he said it was unique because azerbaijan actions have support from turkey. now. the ceasefire came into effect a couple of hours ago there are already reports that it's been breached to what level and to what extent isn't immediately clear although we have been told by the authorities here in nagorno-karabakh that the has been shelling of a town called had dropped to the south this might be relevant because yesterday when azerbaijani president. was speaking on television to the nation he said
1:04 pm
they've taken that town but they haven't and that's why maybe why there is shelling of it going on from the azerbaijani side that's the only thing we can assume from that and the might have been some of the smaller breaches along the line of contact in step and it's been quiet since the cease fire came into effect we've not heard of the air raid sirens we haven't heard of any shelling immediately where we are but a thanks very much indeed for that reporting to us from savannah thank you very much let's go to city of course you're live is live for us in tot. he said i'm just talk us through what the reaction has been on your side. well rob currently we have no reaction from the officials yet about this temporary cease fire we have no idea how long it will last but there's a perception among everyone that it may last up to 72 hours which is not actually
1:05 pm
very welcomed by the azaria people because they believe after 30 years that they have their lands have been occupied by armenian forces this is the 1st time they have the upper hand they have a military with power with more sophisticated weapons at least they have a military back then they didn't have so they believe that a long truce or a long temporary cease fire would only help our maintenance to build up its positions and maybe get some new weaponry from there are large countries there is a perception among the civilians who have been mourning there for their soldiers that have been killed since september 27th and for the 1st time in their history they believe that they are very strong and especially as every jump presidents earlier today said that you know this is a historical victory for us our own then by using the military force they were able to bring our mania to a negotiation table and he said the 1st step of
1:06 pm
a solution to the school to his military then it should be a political process and now we are in a town called. where i am is is an id peace settlement actually there are 34 buildings and more than 6000 people civilians were living here they were all people who were displaced from the going on in the 9090 s and this compound was actually built by the government for them to settle down but since the beginning of the conflict in september 27th this area had been also targeted several times and most of the buildings are damaged and those people say that we are already displaced and now we are displaced again and just one last thing minister of defense. and the pay radio off as any minute they destroying a tank throng we don't know we caught mayor fly when it was found but it's a clear message from the as a military that we are stronger than you to. sit in thanks very much indeed send
1:07 pm
him christiane the reporting to us from john i want to bring in matthew bruce in istanbul he's a former u.s. mediator of the go on account of a conflict and he's currently a senior fellow at the atlanta council we appreciate your time so thank you very much indeed in terms of the cease fire that we're seeing at the moment you've seen a lot of these particular related to nirvana caught a back it is realistic to say that no cease fire ever comes into effect with full sation of activity on either side there is always a period isn't there when the truce is a non-story to be gains and the fighting whatever that is gradually kind of dies away is that what we're seeing here. i hope so robin thanks for having me i hope so yes it's absolutely correct that each side right when a ceasefire is being implemented and sometimes a little bit after they try to get as much merging all advantages they can before the terms actually kind of solidified i think that this this cease fire is more
1:08 pm
than just a temporary lull it's more than just a humanitarian ceasefire if you look at the actual terms they are the 1st point is about exchanging corpses and prisoners but the rest of the terms the 3 other terms are all about looking into the future and restarting the negotiating process so it doesn't sound like at least president putin expects that there's going to be a more serious fighting we had some very strong statements from the israeli president on friday what has given us a bias on the confidence to take this action because at the moment it doesn't seem to fear retribution from anyone. yes and the answer is that azerbaijan was winning militarily it was using relying heavily on chris asian strikes using turkish an israeli drones against high value armenian military assets like air defense systems tanks artillery and are mean it really doesn't have the electronic warfare or defense capabilities to stop these attacks so azerbaijan knew it was
1:09 pm
steadily marching forward and had momentum on its side and i think buck who was sensing that maybe you know one was growing desperate as evidenced by the attacks on civilians that seem them was just describing you know around bad intel tar and other parts of azerbaijan so he was the military facts on the ground gave gave president aliyev confidence and i have to say yes sometimes reporting is excellent and i think what president aliyev saw was it was going to be very risky and costly to try to recover all of us by john's loss territory militarily and now azerbaijan can negotiate from a position of strength there was an outbreak of fighting back in july across the line of contact which we reported on at the time. this latest amount of this latest round of fighting hasn't really or shouldn't really have come as a surprise to everybody but in your opinion what provoked the attacks that we saw in july that led up perhaps to this full scale assault that we're seeing.
1:10 pm
yeah i mean in july by the way the attack was actually somewhere else about 300 kilometers from from from this location in it so that was along the international border between armenia and azerbaijan so back then i mean you know you couldn't speculate on each side why it happened to me i can't imagine azerbaijan would ever want to see clashes where the occurred in july because that's far away from the barn a car or a box far away from the other occupied azerbaijani territories but right where all of the international infrastructure passes meaning oil and gas pipelines a fiber optic cable rail line a highway and so that's it's unlikely unlikely azerbaijan want to see fighting there and us are unlikely azerbaijan would want the fighting to spill onto armenian territory because in that case and armenia can invoke the collective security treaty organization and then bring russia into the fighting so it you know but lot
1:11 pm
of people have speculated some someone on the nano was a budget on the side provoke that fighting i don't know i don't have the information the armenian side says well precisely because it's not in house or by john's interest for the fighting to be there maybe azerbaijan tried to provoke armenia the bottom line is though it really doesn't matter because you know the tensions escalated i think yasser by johnny's side just decided over the course of a subsequent month and a half that armenia had given up on the negotiating process so the tension was high and once the fuse was ignited along the line of contact pandora's box was opened and that's what you've seen of president putin was trying to close down doors box i was having to back at the background to this this conflict and it appears that the only time there was any relative calm with regard to these 2 were going to cut about was when the soviet union dominated armenia and azerbaijan given not circumstance is it actually realistic to believe and you've been part of the negotiations that there was a way of finding a solution a long term solution to this. so there is actually so in january of
1:12 pm
2009 the event president of armenia. and current president ilham aliyev agreed to something called the basic principles i won't go into all of them now but they provided with a compromise solution that was mutually acceptable at least to the leaders of the countries those basic principles are very unpopular among the populations at large but. both leaders saw that this was really the only realistic way to go forward in the basic idea is you delay until that distant future a settlement of the final legal status of nagorno karabakh give it an interim an ambiguous legal status today and then return all the the 7 surrounding azerbaijani territories to us about johnny control so that the displaced persons can return so prime minister pushing yun repudiated that formula over the last year but in today's ceasefire agreement what you see is that both sides have agreed to return
1:13 pm
to negotiations on the basis of those basic principles so that's a big political cost a question yun but to me it's the greatest hope that maybe the 2 sides now in this new geo political environment will return to what they had preliminarily agreed 11 years ago and maybe finalize the agreement now always good to get your thoughts on this we have really appreciated meetings because i thank you very much indeed thank you rob great to be with us honor. but more ahead on the news hour including. that the state of emergency in her stands capital fall in disputed elections parliament is due to meet to find a way forward. losing ground fires and deforestation are rapidly shrinking brazil's amazon rain forest. and the world's 2 top tennis players book a place in the french open final jones going to show you how they did it a short. time
1:14 pm
once president says he's willing to hold talks with china if they're on an equal basis speaking at national day celebrations so in one said she's open to quote meaningful dialogue with beijing and hopes regional tensions be resolved peacefully a speech comes at a time of increased tension with china that's boosted air force activity near the island in the past few weeks beijing has been angered by growing u.s. support for the self-governing country. but as long as the beijing authorities are willing to resolve an attack in ism's and improve relations parity and dignity maintained we are willing to work together to facilitate meaningful dialogue we are committed to upholding regional stability but this is not something taiwan can show to alone it is the joint responsibility of both sides . rosedale feingold's a political risk analyst he said sighing and one's offer for talks on equal terms
1:15 pm
won't change china's stance on taiwan. for the taiwan government in the people of taiwan they don't want to be treated as if they are a constituent part of the people's republic of china a local level government they don't want to have negotiations under the framework that is demanded by china which was a framework that this government which was 1st elected in 2016 has rejected your one sentence or a few words in the speech are not going to really change anything that china does. with military exercises or insisting on taiwan accepting that it has a local government kind of status and it's not an independent country while there are certainly a worry here in taiwan that obama style policies would return under a but abiding administration which really was to encourage taiwan to talk to china
1:16 pm
and to do so under the framework that the chinese government had proposed which again is something that the current government in taiwan has rejected so certainly there is some concern from the taiwan government and i think parts of this speech had that concern in mind and it's trying to position taiwan for how it's going to present itself in front of a new u.s. administration or even if the president trump is reelected and you know the possibility that current policies will continue as well so definitely some strategizing there from the tyrol government on police have arrested 9 people suspected of helping pro-democracy activists who attempted to flee to taiwan but doesn't activists have been held in the southern city since then since all this and they were intercepted by chinese authorities their families held a protest on thursday accusing the police of lying about the circumstances around their capture. and in neighboring macau
1:17 pm
a world press photo exhibition featuring images from hong kong's antigovernment protests has been shut down without explanation the show's organizers expressed regret over the closure of media reports suggest it could be because of political pressure from beijing the city's press association says macau is facing a worrying episode of erosion for freedom and expression an exhibition showing images of the chinaman square massacre was banned earlier in the year ok let me take you know to north korea state to television there is broadcasting footage of a large military parade to mark the 75th anniversary of the ruling workers' party a much anticipated event has been held in the cattle pyongyang that's thought to have taken place early morning and then it comes in the deadlocked nuclear talks with the u.s. robin wright is live for us in seoul rob this is coming at a time when relations between south korea and north korea are still somewhat tense
1:18 pm
and it is a big show of force according to these pictures that we're seeing here. absolutely this is been longer expected there's been mounting speculation about this whole event in the days leading up to this this is a very important day of course 75 years since the founding of the ruling workers' party of korea north korea tends to celebrate the 10th or 5th anniversary of these big events with big military parades like this there were a lot of speculation of that we were going to see live pictures north korea has in the past broadcast these parades live on the north korean media and releasing those pictures to the world all day we have been waiting to see any indication that we were going to get a feed of pictures that this event a taken place lots of rumors started to swirl throughout saturday that in fact they some sort of rehearsal or maybe the event itself had taken place in the early hours
1:19 pm
of saturday morning and now we see in fact that was the case this is very unusual north korea i think it's probably the 1st time north korea has staged such an important parade as this in the early hours we don't know quite why they've taken this decision to do that possibly maybe it's something to do with covert as a way of keeping down the controlling the crowds who are watching this parade we do know from the pictures we are seeing that people are in attendance they are watching and interestingly all the people who are marching none of them asked it seems they are not keeping social distance north korea of course claims famously that it hasn't yet recorded a single case of covert 19 is very proud of that fact and holds it up as a as an example of why isn't the bold leadership of kim jong un and the north korean leadership. rob of course the parades like this are very often
1:20 pm
used as a demonstration of military powers that we've seen in the past protection from north korea when they have put their blood scare missiles the military technicality technical ability on show and of course the timing is interesting isn't it because again we're only about a month away from the u.s. presidential election. absolutely we're waiting to see later on in the parade that's when we normally start to see the hardware out come the tanks the guns and of course north korea's fayned ballistic missiles or different sort of missile weapons systems rocket launchers and the likes now in the past of course we have seen some of the controversial longer range intercontinental ballistic missiles that it has been testing of course in 2017 bringing the whole korean peninsula almost to the verge of an open conflict and the last big parade that we saw that was back in 2018 those were some of those larger missiles work conspicuous by their absence they were only showing us not some of the newer
1:21 pm
missiles they were working on and that were of course came at a time when the relations had seen a thaw there was speculation about whether north korea or in the united states were going to hold talks so the north koreans held back on any provocative showing of weapons systems that would anger the united states at the moment of course a lot of speculation about whether they will do the same again they do not want to try to interfere with the run up to this election it seems they almost a taking a position of wait and see i think they would probably like to see donald trump reelected it suits then they think they see mr trump as being their best bet of getting some sort of relief from sanctions and wouldn't want to do anything to upset that so it remains to be seen whether they will show any of their more controversial hardware that they're working on such as submarine launched a ballistic missiles that we know they have been developing over the past few years
1:22 pm
but also i think importantly it at this time they are suffering from an awful lot of problems they have the ongoing sanctions the isolation caused by covert 19 and basically cutting themselves off from the world the impact of devastating typhoons and rains over the summer that have affected harvests so this is a way i think. north korea's showing to the world but also showing to themselves that young earned the kinda honesty is very much still at the helm still very much in power rob just as you were talking there we're seeing pictures of kim jong un emerging flanked by 2 senior military officers he's appearing before the crowd now on to the stage where he is probably going to be reviewing the military hardware certainly the march past that you were talking about earlier on right for now thank you very much indeed the world health organization has warned europe to take decisive action to curb soaring coronavirus infection rates it's urging countries
1:23 pm
to limit large gatherings or expect tough lockdowns i know it's not necessarily what people want to hear but that is it it is still sad to see many countries in europe experiencing a rapid rise in cases and governments to have to take decisive action in order to try and shut down the transmission poland is reported a record rise in new delhi infections with more than 5300 confirmed on saturday new restrictions have come into force it's not mandatory to wear masks outdoors at all times. prime minister much is more a vet a wants to avoid a 2nd full lockdown which he says would be our worst case scenario poland has recorded more than 121 fires and over 1000 cases a nearly 3000 deaths so far. now break is also worsening in russia nearly 13000 cases were confirmed on saturday its worst daily figure in the 1300000 people
1:24 pm
have been infected and almost 23000 have died in france the number of infections has risen by more than 20000 and that's the highest rate since the pandemic began hospitals in paris of moved into emergency mode after an increase in the number of patients in intensive care. for the 4th day in a row new cases in the czech republic of hit record numbers more than 8601 faction's were confirmed on friday the government's ordered sports and cultural venues to shut for 2 weeks well donna dawson is a psychologist and personality behavior specialist she's joining us on skype from london it's good to have you with us one of the things that appears to be materializing after months of the pandemic is so-called pandemic fatigue how would you define pandemic fatigue. a kind of where you resignation about here we go
1:25 pm
again when does this ever have an end we never actually recovered from the 1st wave completely before we were thrown into the 2nd wave. you know people are just fed up now i think by age group and by occupation you can see the differences amongst older people and those who are more conservative and law abiding there is this kind of wary resignation well we've got to do this for the common good and we may not like it but we've got to do it but we're starting to see more dissent amongst younger age groups and that age group is expanding beyond 30 i would say 17 now up to about 3540 we've course we've had university students going back to a situation where they're in lockdown in their local dormitories they're upset that they're not getting the education they're paid for they're paying rent and they're not allowed to really make use of the facilities around them we've got self-employed business people particularly in the hospitality sector who are now starting to rebel quite loudly because they don't feel they're being listened to
1:26 pm
we've got local leaders all over the country who feel that the national government . the conservative party members are not listening to them they haven't liaised with them so what we seem to be getting is a lot of very unwell thought out legislation that keeps changing backtracking needs to stop and explain themselves and of course what's gradually eroding everything apart from time is various ministers who have themselves not upheld the the rules so people are thinking well you know this one rule for them one rule for us so there's an awful lot of dissent going ringback on at the moment i don't quite know where it's going to end but most of it seems to be focused on not having a good tracing and tracking regime and i think the old message of you know we must do this for the n.h.s. is starting to wear thin i think people are starting to say well if we've all got to. the n.h.s. why don't you make the n.h.s. stronger rather than putting the onus on us so there's
1:27 pm
a lot more thinking now about what's actually being asked of us and whether it's possible to continue doing it you know christmas is coming up people are worried whether they're going to be able to see their families or even their friends the rule of 6 what does that mean does it mean 6 different households now it seems to me just to there's a lot of confusion and i think people are saying what is the message we're waiting on monday for a new set of messages which seems to reflect the traffic light system of red green and amber that's going to apply different rules to different groups of us so i just hope we all understand it and we all want to do it yeah right now it's a lot of confusion apathy rebellion and weariness i understand that you're obviously you're talking specifically about the situation in the u.k. but we're seeing of course the same thing because it is essentially human nature isn't that we're describing here being spread across the world in it but it's interesting though isn't it that people are getting to the point where they are
1:28 pm
seeing no benefit in staying at home and maintaining the restrictions and as a result they appear willing to put themselves at risk their loved ones at risk their friends at risk simply to be able to go outside how do you break that cycle how do you get people to reinvest and make them realise that this is actually a severe life dependency reallife dependent risk that they're taking if they actually step outside their door. this is a very difficult one because unless you know somebody who had somebody in your family infected it doesn't seem real anymore it seems to be out fair affecting of the people and i think the message about protecting your loved ones if your loved ones haven't been affected again you're wondering whether it's actually going to affect you at all and what happens then is you begin to minimize in your own mind
1:29 pm
you begin to see it as something that's not that serious that if you get it you could recover and that if you are sensible you can avoid it now that's the plan on everybody else thinking the same way and of course that's not happening and i think we we have to keep reinforcing the message that this is real that it could happen to you or to anyone you could be anywhere and you could pick it up and not know it and this is the problem there are a lot of asymptomatic people in our society that are going around not knowing they've got it until they've been tested so i think we have to reinforce that message that you could have it and not know it and you could be spreading it and not knowing it so this is why you've got to be careful for yourself for your loved ones for those around you i think we've lost interest in the wider community to some extent but you know we still have to hold that message that it's your loved ones your mother your sister your brother your uncle it could be affected it's the only way to do this and i think we just need to keep showing on the news that there
1:30 pm
are 'd consequences for having this illness you know the young may think that they can get away with it but there are still young people getting seriously ill and we've got something now called long cove it which means you are you live with the after effects of covert for a much longer and there are lots of worrying symptoms that we're only just starting to discover and we don't know the full term consequences of donna dawson we appreciate your expertise in this thank you very much indeed for joining us on all jazeera thank you you're welcome. the top u.s. infectious diseases expert has called the unveiling of the president's nominee to the supreme court super spreader event at least 11 people who attended the ceremony last month of tested positive for covert 19 doctors have given approval for president donald trump to hold public events as he recovers from the virus is set to address supporters of the white house later on saturday but on 25 she says everyone including trump needs to follow health guidelines it disturbs me when i see that no matter who is doing it when you have congregate settings that have no
1:31 pm
man in a situation particularly if it's indoors that is asking for trouble and that is something that is contrary to the things that i and my public health colleagues have been saying for some time now you've got to avoid those situations and it doesn't matter who you are away you or everyone should be avoiding those types of situations well donald trump is given his 1st on camera interview since testing positive for the coronavirus his 2nd debate against joe biden has been canceled after trump refused to hold it virtually kristensen him reports. i don't lot of people appearing on his favorite news channel president donald trump was yelling positively i feel really really strong and a lot of people don't feel that way sometimes for a while he credited a still experimental antibody treatment for his speedy recovery from corona virus are you tested i heard you i heard you said you were going to test again today have
1:32 pm
you been retested. i have been retested and i haven't even found numbers or anything yet but i've been retested and i know i'm at either the bottom of the scale or free. that's not likely to appease his critics. who question his plans to host crowds for an event on the white house lawn on saturday less than 2 weeks after his diagnosis. it was shortly after this event in the rose garden that he and several people who attended tested positive. president eager to get back on the campaign trail is also planning to hold a rally in florida on monday that's despite that 9 people who attended this rally in minnesota on september 18th have tested positive for the chronic virus 2 of them firing hospitalisation out mr president but as for the debate scheduled for october
1:33 pm
15th that's been canceled by the commission sponsoring it after the president refused to do it online instead of a new person or so re president trump clearly attempting to project strength and health while his democratic rival joe biden portrayed the president's decision not to debate as weak saying he was dodging voters who would be asking the questions and must decide between the 2 in less than 3 weeks kristen salumi al-jazeera it's time for the other his role. i felt malice hurrican delta made landfall likely still during the hours of daylight but 6 o'clock local this is yesterday in louisiana and it's now gone inland which means it's lost most of its power and that was fairly started as a category 2 hurricane when it came across this is lake charles has some damage is done about half 1000000 people are still without power. of course is still debris from the last hurricane hit but this is well inland now the winds are no longer a problem that down to about 45 kilometers rather remaining risk assisting tracks
1:34 pm
slowly northeast winds is the amount of rain it will still drop up to $250.00 millimeters there was a risk from the storm surge reached right through to new orleans and the pearl river delta but that's also subsided now we've yet to see what the result was now this is the forecast rest of the day and overnight as it moves up through arkansas touching mississippi then towards tennessee the rain spread quite a long way ahead and to the east of circulation we're no longer be relevant from the point of view of winds now this even at this stage should give $151.00 to israel and rush up towards d.c. which is coincidentally about the same amount of rain that's coming into washington state all atar iraq low later on sunday and into monday. so i had all just. by thousands of protesters in chile i'm great i'm fed up with the government . on the top of a razor on the way to the next round of the m.p.l.
