12:00 am
experience the unimaginable of the people who live it is a probably the most extreme situation i've been involved in. how quickly things contract award winning documentary use that old for perception, witness on a, just the euro. ah, this is al jazeera. ah, i know i'm north taylor, this is the al jazeera news. i live from london coming up. the u. s. president meets cut us emir at the white house, confirming the gulf nation will be given special status and designated a major non nato ally. the un security council, the u. s. and russia trade verbal blows as the military build up at ukraine's border. take center stage times of parties at the u. k. prime ministers residence
12:01 am
during locked down an official investigation, finds failures of leadership and judgment and north career releases. photographs taken off and by its latest missile after a record setting, months of tests. and in sports, it's been confirmed. the allenby stadium will be used to host the africa cup of nations final, in cameroon, the venue is being reopened. just days after 8 people died in a crush outside the state. ah, use president joe biden has told cutters, emir shake to mean been her model funny, but he will soon designate cutter as a major non nato ally. leaders would be meeting that the white house to discuss a range of issues, including a possible row for the golf state in cushioning. the economic impact of a potential russia ukraine conflict could step in to supply gaster western europe.
12:02 am
a fresh supplies a disrupted cutter is a good friend in reliable and capable partner. and i am notifying congress that i will designate, cut, our as a major non nato ally to reflect the importance importance of our relationship and it's long overdue. 2022 is a very important year at the market. a 50th anniversary of our to provide relationship between katara state of america is a very strong relationship. and we're very proud about it to our very probably what we have achieved. of course, this afternoon i'm going to be talking with the president about different topics, mainly about the security of our region. i think we demonstrated that how solid and how strong we can work together and go freight when what we did tons of fish doing just live from the white house, not an area range of issues on the table. but the us seeing cutter is
12:03 am
a major regional and global partner. while the release of this strategic importance, particularly over the last few months when a lot of the problems of the u. s. has been facing the realize that cutoff has connections and links with people that might be able to help. if you think about a run, a cut out as one of the few gulf nations that has a relationship with iran, when it comes to discussing at the nuclear deal in yemen, they have connections there as well when it comes to dealing with the palestinians . the studies of course of nature that a lot of aid gets through there. and so when you see other issues, then joe biden has acknowledged that kata is an important player and saw that particularly just 6 months ago during the, the u. s. withdrawal from afghanistan, where the categories played a significant role in making sure that americans got out safely, even to the extent at one point of the category, ambassador walking american through at taliban lines to make sure that people go to the airport. and of course, that are lying on them now as well,
12:04 am
that there is an issue in ukraine. joe biden realizes that if russian troops crossed the border, he will impose sanctions. the russians. me retaliate by turning off the gas to most of europe in the middle of a very cold winter. and so he needs alternative supplies and he's looking to the categories to help not. i don't think he expects the categories to provide you with all the gas it needs, but the, the might be able to develop some of the supplies from the existing customers if there's some sort of deal that that can come through that. so this designation of a non need to allies important to the kid tardies it shows host significantly have become in the region. the tardy officials have always said that they are safe, the secure and reliable partner in what is an unsafe and unreliable part of the world. but when it goes to congress, that means that it will get added benefits, no when it comes to various of trade in defense and also in mutual security cooperation. so this will be seen as a very big win for the categories. and certainly we'll,
12:05 am
we'll enhanced their reputation in the region where they believe that they have become a very small nation, a significant global player. how difficult will it be to provide extra gas to the region given the kind of contracts that cat i've already has with other with other clients it will be difficult and no one suggesting that it won't because katara is almost operating at full capacity at the moment what they can do is approach some of the customers and ask if there is the possibility that they could develop some of their supplies to help europe. it still won't be enough to help germany. for example, if the gas was turned off, but it would certainly sure that there is a committed united front against the russians and would send a message saying you might be able to try and bully as. but we will find ways around that. it presents a united international front against the russians and sends a message to them that it, you know, that the, the west
12:06 am
a particularly nieto is determined to, to make sure that russia will not cross the borders of ukraine. and fisher, thank you very much. and they are a senior political analyst now, and michelle joins asli vet from paris by skype and give you an idea, the significance of this kind of new designation for cartoon, and the kind of geopolitical ramifications of west we're going, it's important been as far as any alliance of course, is based 1st and foremost, an estimate trade and asserting this relationship is quite a symmetric superpower, is us more country in a very volatile region. so the fact that such a small country is able to acquire that sort of stuff is, is quite sort of not just a minute to, it's all, but what is quite amazing about it is the fact that it's almost come sort of 5 years and 5 millennia after you know,
12:07 am
to south 2017, when the relationships between the 2 countries were at their worst president from the time. so over the past 5 years or the ship has really developed in such a breathtaking way. and especially over the last year, during the, by the ministration with copper play, a more important role in up can stand and in the gulf as recently in trying to bridge the differences with you on all of that. of course, you know, it has been quite important to upgrade that this for a small country in a region that's certainly a very important security testimony for the united states. it is part of a president barton's at them to rebuild america. alliances around the world. tell me on, i've got to stop, is there any kind of plan to come up with some sort of solution that gets around
12:08 am
the issue the, there's no money being supplied and going to stop falling into greater problems with hunger and, and poverty over time. and meanwhile, no money has been on frozen. is there anything on that level that can be discussed and, and pulled out of the back? absolutely, and i think i agree with you, it's a total disaster. and i think that the national community has specified to that. and i think what they're seeing at the airport in couple could be applied it to the way to move forward. because if you remember on the several months ago, studies the american certainly, and the taliban. i've got to run into a major disagreement over how to run the airport that ends even to get any 8 or to get any people or the company was a major challenge. but through dialogue, through diplomacy, through various leverage, protection on the part of cut out,
12:09 am
including money. as i thought they were able then to, along with the torque to manage parts of the airport in cardboard, and our international assistance and allow international travel and so on. so forth to reconnect if you were at the taliban and kind of center of the world. in fact, just the recent delegation here in europe from i guess that would have made it without that's what's happening with airport. so i think we've seen a pilot of that sort of arrangement whereby more understanding what the final but the conditions, the minimum conditions that the community expects from the new regime in afghanistan in order for some of that 8 or some of that money owed the gun to start to feel back to the country. it's urgent that this happens quickly. i'm the source of bilateral meetings that were seen today between the cut, the really there and the american president. of course, the way to watch that now can they have a lot of issues to discuss, but it was interesting that the emir in that brief side to address the medium,
12:10 am
did she mention the palestinian, the palestinians. what would you make of that tickets? refreshing, refreshing. the sense that we've heard recently from one leader who said that they said that they brought up the question about a sound burst, but in fact, for do it has become a forgotten issue. even though it continues to be occupied, depressed, and is ready to start to mr. continue to proliferate and occupied palestine. and none of the readers are really bringing up a lobbying for it. and like, you know, several decades ago when much of the board was united. so to see the leader of a small country like arthur who's been trying to help occupied but especially to gaza, bring up the subject is of course important. and i tell you why also to important because we've seen that before with various and my compress that sometimes when to hear the perspective of another leader from another region, it took a break,
12:11 am
some of complicity around them from their own national security council from their own you know, washington elite ecosystem. so to have that kind of perspective, been at least again, yes, it's more country, but it doesn't have big gears and long arm. and it does have its, its finger on the pulse and the region. and it doesn't understand that palestine is, remains central for regional security. some of the leaders might be more than satisfied to turn their back to it. but everyone of the sense that the, in the world in the mostly more, in fact, international in the past, that remains a hot issue that needs to be resolved in order for security in the region to start taking a different path forward to bring it up is important not only for the palestinians, it's important for there's no security now in the shower. thank you very much. indeed. members of the united nations security council had been sitting for the 1st time to discuss the issue of the russian trip build up on ukraine's border. deep
12:12 am
division of who's to blame and whether the meeting should even take place automatic at at a james bay's report, some un headquarters in new york. the security council heard 2 very different arguments about the situation in eastern europe. the u. s, which called this meeting says the russian military build up around ukraine is the largest mobilization of troops in europe. in decades, rushes aggression to day, not only threaten ukraine. it also threatens europe. it threatens the international order, this body is charged with upholding. we continue to hope russia chooses the path of diplomacy over the path of conflict in ukraine. but we cannot just wait and see. but russia's ambassador vaseline, the benzine says, all his countries troops around russian soil, they're not close to the ukrainian border. and there's absolutely no proof of
12:13 am
a threat from them. he says the us and nato were whipping up tensions as though they want to be a war outside the council chamber. i pushed him further on this. are there any circumstances in which russian troops would cross the border into ukraine? can you be clear for it? i am. i am not the person to decide whatever happens, but we never. i said it in my statement that no russian petition or even their public figure ever said that we are planning to take your great what a clear answer. it seemed. but then he added this with not exclude provocations from uh, from ukraine inside the separatist. republics, they say they have information that such provocations may happen. russia had tried to prevent this meeting by calling a procedural vote at the start. 9 countries supported the u. s. but russia was joined by china and objecting to the session. and 3 other security council members,
12:14 am
gabon, kenya, and india, abstained. the meeting went ahead, bought the procedural vote. and the comments of many of the non western members of the council should be noted. the u. s. is aim here was to galvanize international opinion against what it says is the russian threat. but to achieve a broad international consensus, it still has more work to do. james bay's al jazeera, the united nations, as concerned that a russian invasion of ukraine could compromise, europe's gas supplies, and the u. s. as we've had is looking to counter for help to try to plug the gap and he can suffers as the sharing a chair in energy and jeer politics at the center for strategic and international studies. he joins his life in washington, d. c. thanks very much for being with us sir. how are important apart? could cat a player nessa in trenton shore up supplies of gas or is one of the largest l n g suppliers in the world? so if we have a disruption of russian gas to europe,
12:15 am
what europe is going to be looking to is any supplier around the world who can either produce more, not many can or more likely divert supplies that are currently going elsewhere to europe. and if you looking at that part of the equation, the 2 largest sources of supply in the world that could help europe or the united states and cut their so if you're trying to build up europe's defenses, you really have to be talking to cut her. how critical is the timing though? if gas apply to europe is sir to be protected by finding other sources? it is a timing is an important matter. timing is a really important matter in a number of ways. number one, we use a lot of gas in the world during the winter, and so the demand goes down with every day that passes. a crisis in february is very different than a crisis in march or april. and that also is reflected in how cut ourselves gas to the world. it sends a lot of gas to asia still today. but it sends
12:16 am
a lot more gas to asia during the winter months as we come off of january and february, that supply to asia goes down, which means cut there has more gas to send to europe even today. cutler is certainly sending all the about half as much gas to europe as it did say a year ago. so there is more flexibility as we go towards spring. i mean, this was not a talk who is about a, how damaging it would be for europe if, if the gas supply were turned off or reduced by russia. but how much of a problem would it be for russian tentative revenue loss if it did reduce its, its output? russia makes most of its money selling oil rather than natural gas. so in very pure dollar terms, it could probably withstand a short term hit in the money that it earns from selling gas to europe. but obviously, the reputational damage would be enormous, and russia's ability to retain its role in the european market in the media and longer term would be compromised. rush, i was always claimed to be
12:17 am
a reliable supplier, one that never played politics. a lot of people in europe, of course, would contest that statement, but this would be one would be enormous and that would reverberate for years in its dealings with the european market. it is about how this will affect nordstrom to, i mean, it's not functioning yet, but what's your pre prediction on where that will go? yeah, nordstrom to is in today's market. more of a lever that the united states and maybe germany might use. it's quite clear that if there is an incursion or a conflict that escalates in ukraine, the united states would like to and germany might make nordstrom to part of the conversation, essentially not allowing russia to use nor to trim to. that's a possibility. germany has mostly shown a slowness in approving the project. that's essentially the default position right now. no one expects the pipeline to really operate until much later in the year. so
12:18 am
there is a sense of dragging their feet for germany busy with this project. in part, to maintain the optionality of hitting this pipeline. once this pipeline starts operating, it's very difficult to shut off because no one wants to shut off gas to their own economy. but at the same time, what the last 67 months have shown us with very high energy prices in europe, in part because of how russia has sold its gas into the continent, is that russia has market power in europe. whether or not nordstrom to is completed and flows or not. and nicholas f us. thank you very much indeed. tefilo today. thank you. thank you. so the come on the knees are united arab emirates, target spaces in yemen after who the rebels carry out drone and missile attacks on abu dhabi lou around between artists and the streaming service. spotify grows over its support for an anti vaccine
12:19 am
podcast host. as hort or william come back for the sofa who's getting used to overcoming norms. and he's here with that story. ah and the u. k. a preliminary report has been released into claims that government parties and gatherings were held during strict karone of irish luck towns. the findings condemned the events and call for change of behavior at the heart of british government, but refer to incidence which remain subject to police investigation in the report, little detail was given but to grace as there were failures of leadership and judgment by different parts of number 10 and the cabinet office at different times, the senior civil servant also says that given that the government was asking citizens to accept far reaching restrictions on their lives, some of the behavior was difficult to justify. and that some staff wanted to raise concerns about behavior they witnessed at work,
12:20 am
but at times felt unable to do so. as she says, there's significant learning to be drawn from these events, which does not need to wait for the police investigations to be concluded. or as johnson has responded with an apology and a promise to reshuffle, staffing if barker has been falling events in london. a failure of leadership behind the famous black door, sue grey's crunch findings more biting than expected. the report talks of high standards not being met by those setting, the rules of excessive alcohol consumption in the workplace and gatherings without clear, authorization or oversight. some behavior, she said, was difficult to justify, against the backdrop of the pandemic. ah, were nothing of early critical of johnson himself. it's perhaps not the big take down. his rivals hopeful, a contrite prime minister, appearing in front of parliament, promising to overhaul downing street and clean up our government. but no talk of stepping down. i'm sorry for the things we simply didn't get right. and also sorry
12:21 am
for the way that this matter has been handled. i get it and i will fix it to the people of this country. i know what the issue is. yes. it's whether this government can be trusted to deliver and i said to speak, i guess we can be thought to grey, have been planning to release a full report until london's metropolitan police stepped in, calling for her to pare down her findings while they carry out their own criminal investigation into 12 gatherings, including an alleged party in johnson's flat for johnson's opponents. it isn't just about what's in the su gray report, but what's not in it. for his fears, his critics, they will have to wait for the results of the police investigation to find out more about the most serious offences that could cause the most harm to johnson's
12:22 am
political career. the results of that investigation could be many, many months away. even now he is hiding behind a police investigation into criminality to his home. but his office, the british public on fools. they never believed a word of it. they think the promise to should do the decent thing and reside yet the pro is not just the opposition that's been ramping up. pressure on johnson, some of his own. m. p. 's have been quietly plotting against him. thank you. other familiar faces determined to hold his actions to account what the gray report does show is that number 10 downing street was not observed. think the regulations they had imposed on members of the public. so either my right on befriended, not read the rules or didn't understand what they meant and others around him. well, they didn't think the rules apply to number 10, which was it monday. so a flurry of announcements by number 10 on the economy breaks it and ukraine. this
12:23 am
is a government, eager to steer attention away from recent scandals. but when it comes to party gate, there are still more truths to uncover heads, including the prime ministers may yet role, if enough members of his own party decide it's time for him to go. need barker al jazeera, westminster, po van joins me now. is a johnson has said, be meeting his mpg said this evening. how's that going pretty well by all accounts, although it was a closed door meeting, so generalists had to wait in the corridor outside that committee room at. but the reports from inside were the johnson used his christmas, and his teflon prime minister appears to be able to persuade his party. and they are the people that really matter in all of this to stay on his side because it's not the general public in the u. k, that's going to be able to depose this prime minister. the major threat came from his own back bench, m p 's, his members of the conservative party and parliament. if $54.00 of them had decided that he was no longer fit to be prime minister. and they had written letters
12:24 am
demanding that the should be a leadership contest. then he was under severe threat of being deposed. but at this meeting tonight i hear that he compared himself to a fellow always in the good and p. paul, he promised to republish the gray report in full when it finally emerges. he also said he'd bring back linton crosby, a well respected strategist, who did a lot of good work for the boris johnston campaign in the early days. and those kind of items are those kind of fig leaves, if you like, for the olive branches to the party seem to have gone down well because the feedback from m p into been positive. that said he is maybe out of immediate danger, but not off the hook because don't forget the police investigation continues. the police say they have some 500 pages of evidence and some 300 photographs crucially . and although the police commander said that it may be as much as a year before they get around to finishing their inquiry, imagine $300.00 photographs of parties down the street coming out eventually that could still have the potential to make her a real mess of the of the prime minister's chances and in the short term,
12:25 am
how much damage to the international reputation between the understand that he was supposed to be talking to president putin on the phone and had that call had to be delayed because he's having to deal with the whole and parties scandal in, in the common. that's right. i mean from what depends on your perspective. his eyes say look, people who are criticizing him over this party gaze of miss the bigger picture. the bigger picture is ukraine. the bigger picture is the cost of living crisis here in the u. k. but his critics say, look, because of this, this is a distracted prime minister who's unable to engage in the important diplomacy that's necessary at this crucial time for the in, in the incident on the international stage. yes, he supposed to be a going well, he is going to key f tomorrow to meet with ukrainian president zelinski. he was supposed to have a conversation on the telephone with the russian president, boris a, sorry, a vladimir putin this afternoon. that had to be postponed, canceled effectively, they couldn't find a mutually agreeable time for it to happen. and that is kind of thrown off the carefully choreographed preamble to the,
12:26 am
to the meeting and in care of. so it's certainly going to impact on international diplomacy. and on the chances of success, ah, but other world leaders are perhaps too diplomatic to tell you what they really think about boris johnson. the man. bear in mind. he's still in power. depo written . thank you very much, need now yet man's 7 year war has seen further escalation with who the rebels announcing they've attacked the united arab emirates with drones and missiles the u . e. z as it intercepted, one ballistic missile early on monday. and 30 minutes later destroyed a missile launcher in who she controlled jeff province. manila time report the target was clear, united arab emirates, striking back against host the missile bases. and the man is the latest retaliation officer debris from i hope the missile attack earlier on monday landed in a remote part of bobby marble. i doesn't know how not critical installations and
12:27 am
abu dhabi were targeted by a number of ballistic missiles. also, the image of dubai was targeted by number of drones. the operation by the grace of god hid its targets with high precision mirth or visual se, airports operating as normal. and the healthy did not have an impacts. ah, but the strike coincide with these really presidents at 1st visit to above. and at a time of increase the fighting between the hoses and the saudi quality in yemen. we reiterate that the enemy state, the united arab emirates, will remain an unsafe country so long as they continue with the belligerents against our beloved human people. and this month, how they don't strike on the 8th capital killed 3 people. on sunday, the us state department edged america to reconsider any travel to the united emeralds siding threats of missile attacks. the situation is becoming more
12:28 am
dangerous because the nature of weaponry, this being used in these attacks is becoming more deadly. and that's all the more reason why one hopes that the parties will be able to find some way to resolve this contract this conflict. but diplomacy has yet to solve this original conflict that has been going on for years and created the walls, words to human italian crisis. mom a lot, bob al jazeera, some are watching on 0 from london still to come. european complicity and the di, conditions and dangers faced by libyan migraines is in the spotlight. more athletes, a star test posted for code 19 on arrival in china, where the winter picks are just 3 days away. canada closing in on their 1st? well couple parents since 1986. ah,

12:33 am
corporation dates from 2016 and includes e u funding and assistance for the libyan coast guard. the rights organization says over the past 5 years, more than 82000 people have been returned to libya to face quote, arbitrary detention torture, crew and inhuman detention conditions, rape and sexual violence. extortion, forced labor and unlawful killings, or highest number of intersections was in 2021. when libya coast guards with european support captured more than $32000.00 refugees and migrants at c and returned them to libya. the un says there are more than 12000 people being held in 27 official prisons and detention facilities, many of whom were rescued at sea, but thousands more held in eagerly in secret facilities. all those run by groups where conditions are inhumane for material, but it is a researcher of migration to an asylum at amnesty internationally joined us. live
12:34 am
from brussels. tell us that more about the kind of conditions that you found in some of these or that you discovered in some retention center route evening. there tuition in libya has been appalling refrigerator magnets for a number of years detention centers where people are taken after being intercepted at see europe south are notorious for the treatment of people. people who are not totally arbitrarily detained for a prolonged period of time in the appalling conditions, but they're also exposed to torture and other treatment, sexual violence, forced labor, and even killings. and even outside of detention centers, the situation for a producer, my answer remains incredibly dangerous. and this is why you would ups actions to support believe young course got in the past 5 years range the to the level of complicity in these abuses. and they are being commissioner's said been coast
12:35 am
guards contribute to, to saving lives. and that they said very firm messages to, to be that they should close the migrant detention centers. what else? see what you want from them other than those kind of statement. whereas you say statement a statement we have seen from europe for metering, but people are very concrete actions being taken to enable dan postcard to intercept more and more people. we have seen me tele, would you mind me giving them a new speedboats and you will be and search rest, your region, the coordination center and so on and so forth. on the other side, when it comes to the protection of the rights of f, which is a migrant, it's only words that have no actions. we need now utopian governments really to change approach suspends any forms of cooperation, dropping people in a situation of danger and do more to address that you might tell me. so what,
12:36 am
what is your concern is your concern that this deal will, will continue in, in the current form and that should have been changes. yes, absolutely. did situation over if would you, the migrant continues to be dramatic. and at the same time, we see europe, young governments continuing to foster more and more cooperation weekly, now planning to give them 3 more votes. apparently they have just given them a new coding issue center and we fear that the agreements current in place may be renewed in particular, by the end of the agreements between italy and libya. will expire by will automatically renew under its terms. unless you tell you we denounce and this is what we want from them. how much i mean, politically, are you pushing against the kind of rather a closed door now given it's within europe. the tendency has been to try and, you know, build was if you think about someone like, you know,
12:37 am
better recent poland there seems to be more emphasis on keeping refugees and migrants out rather than the opposite. or how difficult is it going to be for you to argue the case that, that the deal with libya is, is, is not one that they should continue with. certainly this is a difficult political time in the sense that more and more government fabbing factor started rating even more often than the rights of people pushing people back and closing these like the one that would leave you at the same time. and we know that many people support for better policies. we know that many people are in favor, for example, more say for legal pathways for f, which is a migrant. so that's people who are desperate to seek as i county, where they can reduce their lives. in fact offers them their portability to travel regularly rather than forcing them to travel on in the central med natasha business . thank you very much indeed. federal inter,
