4:03 pm
agreement in the region. china pines to bice police, lauren forestman groups and military personnel in hon. yara, to ensure public order falling riots in the capital. china said to offer economic and security partnerships with up to 10 other island dyson ongoing militarization of disputed features and the south china sea. predatory economic activities including illegal unregulated fishing and then the investments that are extractive rather than beneficial to the countries that are subject to them. australia has traditionally played a key role in the pacific affairs. china is expanding, military presence, undermines it's relationships. australia is newly appointed foreign is to flew to fiji on thursday, offering action on climate change, and bolstering humanitarian aid and development. i don't approach the discussion about china and china's
4:04 pm
activities by looking at the pacific as if it is a abstract from australia. i'll look at this and think, what is it we need to do to work together? china has rejected fish, is that it's newly signed security. pat clears the way for naval base in hon yara, and a military presence, 2000 kilometers from australia's coastline. but analysts say china's leaders, i came to challenge the pacific traditional partners of the past. i don't think there's any doubt that this is a clear signal that china res, so as i say staking claim to a place in the region. but also what it is looking to disrupt or what, what have been traditional. i said to relationships in the regions also on the
4:05 pm
itinerary for china's foreign minister. is the g van a watty caraballo, samoa, and papa new guinea. sarah clark, our da 0, brisbin, australia. the for jail attorney general, i'll say it go, you says his country's most pressing concern is climate change and they're looking to australia to help mitigate the risks. in the past couple years, we've had some very good policy decisions. visa, a collaboration during the quote, the pandemic. we had a lot of budget support, for example, from australia. we're looking at the, the black rock where there's a collaboration between the different military forces to build in managerial capacity within the pacific. because again, co pay supply chain. so, you know, we have all said relationship with china to and i think, you know, with the different pieces on can be concerned. they make their own decisions
4:06 pm
individual in the, by little basis we develop a long term relationships. it's not based on one simple for you know, business and then we, what we're going to get out is we kind of sort of like and so extractive approach to these things. we like to develop deep and meaningful relationships. and as the new student government obviously is a much deeper commitment to climate change. we're very much like the cold face of climate change. a prime minister, navigating about climate change. notwithstanding the fact that we have almost negligible carbon footprint, we faced the rock climate change, the 14 cycle and since 2016. and so we, we, the discussion we had today with the prime minister penny long is that you know about what we can do collaboratively in terms of building resiliency and i'm to structure in terms of obviously some mitigation measures. but most of the business got on countries are more concerned about adaptation measures. and generally, if you look at the, the spread of funds that has been committed or indeed has been spent globally,
4:07 pm
a very small proportion to think about it as is only going to the patient. i think only about 2 percent of the german chancellor says the world must make russian president vladimir putin realize that he can't dictate what piece will look like in ukraine. schultz was speaking of the world economic firm in dallas. i'm st mccloud susan, in my mind, if one thing is clear, putin will only seriously negotiate peace when he realizes he cannot break ukraine and its defenses. and that is why we are supporting ukraine in a closely coordinated manner with our partners and allies. for in this, we are united, and we will not do anything to make nato a party to the conflict. because that would mean a direct confrontation between nuclear powers. the aim is rather to make it clear to putin that there will be no dictated peace. he may now the mayor of cave says
4:08 pm
a genocide has been carried out in ukraine. vitale. disco was also in devils. the whole world see thee of horrible images from our satellites, either by the younger it had been gastorm in boucher in a ruin undisturbed is love. special operation is mirth. the war after zeus images what every one so everyone can say is jealous side of you. grand population, while fighting is also intensifying in eastern ukraine, where defense officials, a russian forces have felt more than 40 towns and the don bus region. russian back separatists say that they are holding 8000 ukrainian prisoners of all as get more they swear thus a bag, who joins me now from back with the in the east. and of course, the focus is about the fighting in the east,
4:09 pm
where you are absolutely their focus is in the east. in fact, it's been intensifying. the ukraine authorities have accepted that the russians have been making advances and they called the temporary technical advances, but they said that they shouldn't be interpreted as a retreat by ukrainian forces. now, the time of today is quiet. we haven't heard much other than going fire, but the other night we were. and just before we left the time and we had the time was struck. now let me show you what happened. this is a library. you can say that might be one strike, one read through the roof. the other bomb dropped here, right? because right on the floor between the library and some residential buildings. another crate next to it, took out the residential building opposite and behind that we spoke to some people that were here cleaning up their belongings just to the,
4:10 pm
to the right of us because people who are staying care, i'm yes, one moment like with everyone. ok. i federal, we're a life but i have nowhere to live anymore. we met another mother and a child that lives in the building behind us. and she said that we've left and we only come back to feed our cast because i doesn't want to leave. most people have left because of the situation here and moved out where we were. so slow this morning, just got side and reese and we saw and heard the russian strike hitting a position on the hill. we heard the whistling and the 3rd of the smoke rising up. now, you're going to start saying that russia is intensifying, it's ation, it's, it strikes to help you in that offensive, and also it's long range strategic bonus to take out ukrainian defense. so the situation is intensifying. we've been reporting this quote over a week now. now we have an admission by the ukrainians that the russians, i'm making rounds and just not one front on several fronts around with this area
4:11 pm
and just outside of the road between them. there's a chance that to take the payment status and holding the rest of the claim re supplying again, this is the kind of been station only, but the thing in the region, as the russians make the advances i carry, i strike it seems real as a bike in backward forest, thanks very much for the the sanction the biggest gun lobby in the u. s. is going ahead with its annual meeting on friday just a few hours drive from the size of the 6 mass school shooting in texas. the national rifle association ignored calls to counselors event of the 19 children and 2 teachers were killed in a val day on tuesday. relatives and friends held vigils of the town to mourn those killed. it's the worst school shooting in the u. s. in a decade. pastor joe biden is called on politicians to stand up to the and all re
4:12 pm
till 100 has more from evolved in texas. another school massacre in america in more flowers to more in the dead. just before an 18 year old texas gunman massacred 21 people at rob elementary school on tuesday. the governor says he shot his own grandmother. anyone who shoots his grandmother in the face has to have evil in his heart. but it is far more evil. for someone to gun down little kids. but the republican governors news conference devolved into political theatre when his democratic rival bed, o'rourke interrupted to denounce decades of inaction in congress and in texas. you know, he talked about that this was evil. the only thing evil is what he continues to do
4:13 pm
to the people of the state. he says this was unpredictable. it was totally predictable. and i predict this will continue to happen. syria era's mindy, as a teacher at another grade school. but her niece eliana was a student at rob elementary school. she says it took hours before she learned that elliana was among the dead. i'll we, whatever we saw in the phone. and whether it was news or, or facebook, or how we found, found out a tragedy. we didn't find out about her until late last night. about 1130. that's when they confirmed salvador ramos a high school dropout who for years was bullied in school for speaking with a list bought to a r 15 style assault rifles. shortly after his 18th birthday, police say he carried one of them into the school storming past and armed guard before firing more than 230 times over the course of a harrowing hour before border patrol. agents gunned him down. i just don't
4:14 pm
understand. oh, how people could sell that type bullet good tool kit to an 18 year old. like what did you get to use it for but for that purpose, just what motivated ramos is a question. authorities are trying to answer now. police are still scouring that scene and looking for a motive for once, that gunman off before he apparently shot his grandmother and then came here to rob elementary school. it was the 2nd deadline school shooting in american history, but political deadlock on gun control and a long and bloody history suggests it will not be the last john hendrick al jazeera, who've all day texas. now politicians in washington have also expressed outrage at the shooting, but even those pushing for reforms accepted that the us is a long way from any meaningful legislation to restrict access to guns. she returns
4:15 pm
he has more on the 2nd of us, 3 of the murder of george floyd, the black man who's killing by minneapolis, police lead to millions, taking to the streets nationwide to demand an end to police brutality. president biden signed an executive order designed to prevent federal law enforcement officers from killing. but in fact, this was a reminder of the paralysis in washington. the millions who marched did not achieve that goal of new legal regulations for local law enforcement. so what hope that another current outpouring of grief will achieve congressional action on guns, the president could only plead the congress vote to confirm his own nation to have the gun regulatory body in the us. here's one more step. the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms, explosives, a f t has not had a sent a confirmation letter for 7 years. and throughout the day, it was clear on capitol hill that there's little expectation of anything more
4:16 pm
ambitious democrats pointed to the power of the gun lobby. specifically the national rifle association or n r a is one of the reasons. the problem in the senate is simple to many members on the other side of the aisle are disconnected from the suffering of the american people. to many members on that side. care more about the n r a than they do about families who grieve. and it's true that the n r a has funneled millions of dollars to politicians, to prevent reform, mainly to republicans, but also to some democrats. in fact, on tuesday, the congressional democratic leadership was canvassing for henry, quite a conservative democrat, facing a progressive challenger, quite as received an a grade from the national rifle association, denoting his opposition to gun regulation. it was a point not lost. so one of the leading progressives in the democratic party on the day of the mass shooting alexandria, kathy cortez tweeted, democratic party leadership rallied for a pro and re anti choice incumbent. rober calls fundraisers. all of it.
4:17 pm
accountability isn't part of them. republicans in washington chase to focus on other issues such as the guns, mental health and what they feel is the need for even more resources for law enforcement. we need to develop far more law enforcement resources to stopping violent criminals, preventing these kind of absolute acts. but both these explanations fall short for many turning schools into militarized fortresses, particularly in school. serving minorities, may be the goal for the $1000000000.00 school security industry, but has been shown to increase a sense of insecurity in students. we have no evidence that putting law enforcement within schools has led to a decrease reduction in the occurrence of these events. as many help republicans on suggesting any sort of change from the for profit health care system in the us. the prevents many people from seeking help. in fact,
4:18 pm
in the coming weeks, expectation isn't the new law is designed to prevent gun violence, but a relaxation of existing laws. the supreme court expected to weaken a law on carrying guns in public places. shepherd hansley al jazeera washington. jordan's king is honest, murdered out there. a journalist sharing actually king abdullah awarded her with the independence metal of her courage and distinction in reporting events in the palestinian territory. sharina brother, anton utley received the mental jury ceremony in a mom and more than 30 international rights groups, demanding an independent and thorough investigation industry in killing. they've called on israel to ensure the crime is fully investigated, and prosecuted tree was shot in the head by israeli forces while on assignment to the occupied west bank. earlier this month, she'd been with al jazeera for 25 years, covering the story of the israeli occupation and was known as the voice of palestine. still had here on the opposite,

4:34 pm
nearly 1000 french soldiers are stationed there. that spring gain remarked the hon . a, he's a senior research at the institute for security studies. enjoys me now from chad's capital. good. happy with us on the program, sir. is this a fight over territory or ethnicity? i think that is physically a mix up of all the stuff to the sense. and we should also say that through the time that we are observing these kind of a conflict in that part of the country. and evan, though, actually there was nothing very clear about the causes of the classes. what we know is that those kinds of questions are video. they denied the bottles. and the most of the time, it's happening around the control mining zones, out of control of the benefits trauma, the mining, the fighting, a mighty and all of the time is that the mining
4:35 pm
actually organized for the we make groups. so this is why when there is a kind of evan barry, bananas, apple translation between 2 people. that is to be a candidate for lowering ethnic life. these are very and i'm going to jump in this because these are very important areas for chads economy. i mean gold mining gold mining in general, it's very lucrative operation. so what sort of security procedures or security apparatus has been put in place by the government to make sure that this sort of incident doesn't happen because it obviously is happening and questions are going to be asked was sure i be is very important after shot are not absolutely for me, because even though there was this my, those minding us to be teased,
4:36 pm
we should say that this is not very important at national level. jerry's more depending on oil and also in that regard and husband. but the mining activities are actually very correct. yes, i'm mainly for the communities. what did you need from the back of the country to mean that but also ethnic groups. i've been heading out of the countries in 2012. but this based on the strategy for the company because it's also the way to lead. yeah. and also the way nivia meaning the entry point for weapons and adam groups collecting the company. what we should say that even though that i'd rather be forced by the. ready we are trying at some point to model the boundary of the complete but also also i did. you also see the place where we saw
4:37 pm
is that although all this is dance, the country is not very a, but really making the 2nd trip back to be on in the back of the country. it means that a lot needs to be done in order to secure the bottle to come do you think now the authorities are going to have to focus on this part of the country? it's actually in the north and not very tenuous and interesting border between chad and libya. certainly after the arab awakening. the departure of mamma gadhafi the board who is very fluid. as you say, many our groups and criminal elements entered chad. they still stayed in china and this is becoming a much larger problem, isn't it? which has to be dealt with. yeah, exactly. i think that's just not the only one. you know, our point of attention subs secure. we chat is one of the biggest portals, like i said after the kind of follow your lead. yeah. been the
4:38 pm
unclean points are for dd that have been groups, but also all job small groups, somewhat less organized or that's also part of the criminal economic that we're serving the part of the country. so i really actually need a lot of attention in terms of securing the boundaries to also our lives that the relational weapons from the via but also be able to see all those mining docs of people that mind. because what we see is that there is a kind of one action between the free sort of relation of flush against our weapons in the country, but also the possibility of those people assisting the mining the services back with them. i load them, you know, keep organizing columbia violence and the company that really
4:39 pm
yeah, i sorry to jump in that we already had to time that will generally get the idea. thank you so much. match the whole nasty for joining us from chad. thank you sir. bob oil is hosting a conference aimed at winning international support to sell it stock pile of ivory . it has a 130 tons of elephant has seized from poachers or animals who died. it's worth around $600000000.00 in bobby's warning. it could quit the international convention regulating the trains and endangered species. it sales remained band japan and china 2 of the biggest i'll be customers will be at the gathering as well as representatives and 16 african countries. buying selling ivory has been largely band since 990 dozens of animal rights organizations. a warning that the conference is set to a dangerous signal to poachers and criminals. while john scanlan is the chief executive officer of the elephant protection initiative choice you know from geneva, could tell you this on the program. mr. carmen. and let's just begin before we talk
4:40 pm
about the logistics of how many elements of ins and bobby, let's just talk about a stockpile of ivory that said bob boy has. and it's pushing to try and sell which could generate $600000000.00 as much as that. why shouldn't hirata re sell this stock pile? i think some of the figures that have been trying to round about the value of the stockpile, but you based on all the estimates of ivory. i said, based on the current like market price of ivory, you probably be looking at place it to $90.00 or $100000000.00 for that amount of ivory. but if you, she was a long standing issue, it's gone back many times and we've seen attempts to sell ivory in 2016 and in 2019 . and both didn't attract a lot of support from the parties to psyche. they felt well short to george, he needed to open up trade. it's a big issue there. it goes to the pro trade, an anti trade. i think there's a common ground that everybody is striving to manage the elephant populations and
4:41 pm
the interface with human communities. but there's a gulf, a big difference of opinion on whether or not selling i agree, is the way to guy or maintaining the band the way to guy. i mean, the interesting thing about this conference is, rory isn't doing this under the radar. the u. s. e, u, japan, china, as you've mentioned, of all been invited and all being persuaded, or trying to be persuaded by the bob way to try and find a way that they can sell this ivory. what's the problem with lifting the van if, if, if one of the issues you say is about sending the wrong signal to poachers? yeah, because the challenge that bob, when you're facing is a real one. and it's not just bases in bob way. and that is how you manage large elephant populations and how do you manage them when they're coming into conflict with your local communities and very sadly enduring and killing members of the community. that is a real problem. and how do you finance that?
4:42 pm
at the moment, somebody's looking to selling an ivory stockpiles as a way of financing that the problem is that the theory behind filling ivory is fine . an elephant dies of metric causes. you can make the i for you sell it in the and the prices go back to local communities. the fact reality is that it just hasn't worked that way. once you have a marketing, i've read, you have a high value placed on ivory. it does seem like poaching the illegal killing of elephants for their ivory. i back in 2010 to 2012, we saw 100000 elephants killed illegally for the rivalry. so the issue is, it's the best way forward to try and generate revenue. i would say no, we ought to maintain the ban on ivory for good reasons. what we need to do is have a much broader conversation outside of the outside of the trade or no try to bite and look at how do we generate results is 40 bob way to manage a telecom population in another angle to this whole conversation. bob has an over
4:43 pm
population of elephants that are other parts of the african continent that don't have enough elephants. so to inhibit, you might say the poaching. why is relocation not the big conversation here. rather than killing an over population of elephants, i mean, we're all aghast. at that thought. anyway, yeah, this is a lot of important conversations that have to be head. and the issue of really taking elephants within their range is a real one. we've seen that had to be and other countries such as malawi, where elephants really title from one part to another because of the notification, it's expensive, it takes a lot of expertise, but it can be done. i think what we need to look at here, look at telephones, the wrong way, play and ecosystems and health systems and how important that is to mitigate in climate change and look at all the finance that is around true financial mechanisms like the global environment facility like the green climate fund and other
4:44 pm
facilities, we need to work with the buyer and other range states to start getting financing, flowing to managing elephant populations and the role of a play in the consistency of mitigating climate change in generating well for the country. because at the moment in probably a little bit stuck, it has a larger looking population. conflict with people and a lack of resources that's at the core of this, not right or no try what, just the core is the resources. let's work with them. next, find another way forward is a much larger conversation. i'm sure we'll have in the future with you again. i'm sure john scotland from the elephant protection initiative. thanks for joining us on geneva question. now post johnson has again insisted he will remain as britons prime minister, despite the latest party gate revelations, report into the scandal has caused a new car of illegal parties at 10 downing street during the cave. at 19 lockdown.
4:45 pm
charlie angela has moved from london. another conservative and he, john baron, has withdrawn his support for the prime minister saying he can no longer support him because he believes he has knowingly misled parliament. but look at the morning paper. so as a nation really divided over this issue, quite weary of this episode, the headline range from laughing at all of us to we got away with it, which is referring to attacks that was sent by boris johnson. private secretary off the one of those events to in the more conservative supporting newspapers, what the fuss about and is this is referring to the photograph as far as stones and standing behind a desk holding a kind of coat at what was his birthday party in june 2020 and on wednesday in parliament we did hear a more contrite prime minister mc say was more genuine and ology with a much more humble tone. and that is crucial because the next 48 hours with his m. he's off. why so boys don't, they are going to be going back to the constituencies over the jubilee weekend.
4:46 pm
speaking to the the resident and trying to gauge how serious this still is for the people. have they had enough of this? do they want to move on? do they think his apology was enough, or are they still livid and do they want him gone? now luckily for boys johnson, there is another crisis that is looming. that is the cost of living is much more at the forefront of people's minds right now. and we're going to be hearing from chunk the re, she's tonight who's going to be on waiting for measures on how to ease that squeeze on personal finances and a controversial winful tax on energy companies. so i think attention is already pivoting away from policy gates and towards the cost of living prices. no reformist, in lebanon, 110 percent of the seats, and recent parliamentary elections. not the 1st since the end of the civil war, more than 3 decades ago. but the victory doesn't seem to be the clean brake from traditional politics that many of hopeful, same hot reports are from beirut. the walls are coming down. 2 years
4:47 pm
on lebanon's political establishment has begun to remove barriers that stood between anti corruption protestors and state institutions. through the ballot box and against the odds, those who were demanding political change made their way to parliament winning 10 percent of the seats in the recent election. it's a small crack in the political classes, hold on power, who often used violence to silence opposition. for the longest time, politics in lebanon has been about dividing the shares, and compromising between the different parties in order for each one of them to have its own share after certain bargaining. this is not in democratic process. there when is a 1st and post civil war politics, which has been dominated by mainly sectarian leaders, many of them, former militia leaders. but so far what they have in common is their opposition to the system. they know they'll need to speak in one voice, forming
4:48 pm
a blog at this point for a form of this video section for us to be able to come from the current establishment parties. we know that they are very powerful. we know how much they have leverage of us. those parties also have supporters who have shown willingness to use violence, even destroying opposition. symbols such as setting fire to the iron fist in the epicenter of the protest movement that came to represent the people's resistance and determination. gone are the crowds, their voices are now inside parliament, but the traditional party still retained the majority of seats. they are the dominant force, it's still a resilient regime and opponent swimming, fragmented, to be genuinely kingmaker. they will have to form a united, coherent to block. they will have to form alliances with other groups. they might not have the influence a sink as they will have. they will certainly offer
4:49 pm
a dissenting opinions. they will raise as their voices. they will criticize certain policies. but when it comes to passing a new legislation, as they will face a stumbling block, ah, no doubt, there is a new beginning, but not all is well in lebanon, where political dynamics after the election may not be much different than before. san jose house is eda, beirut will still come on the news other sport including another conference boosting when full the world number 2 at the french open. ah ah
