2:16 am
a report from beirut. oh, it's a moment of change. oh, representatives of lebanon's protest movement making their way to parliament. they walked past security forces, who once kept them out during massive demonstrations in recent years. it's the 1st session of the newly elected legislature. and these 1st time, employees are hoping to bring change to a decades old system. there is no democracy in lebanon. what the consultation and completion of system. but what are your duty words, democrats in lebanon, and do you force me in the right? what gun on that if you, with any, any kind of compromises, compromises based on power sharing between the political establishment of them have long been how politics is done here. that's how parliamentary speaker in to be. but
2:17 am
he was re elected to run a 100 and he has been in the position for 3 decades and for many a symbol of a failed system, riddled with corruption. but this time it was different, very failed to get the endorsement of a majority and one with the slim of march in a blow. but symbolic and i've been, i know the, the mom had, they looked at her that the age of her bed for those who were hoping for radical change that hasn't happened. change in peace, couldn't win enough seats. the status quo didn't change. it was only and seventies leaders who have been in power, who are expected to have the final say on what's next. so vote for a new speaker starts a constitutional process that includes the formation of a new government and in a few months is the election of a new president. but the current landscape in parliament, the lack of a clear cut majority means there could be protracted negotiations. an extended political vacuum won't help a state and an economy that has all that collapse. the parliament has failed over
2:18 am
the years to implement or undertake any economic reforms for that matter. and during the crisis, in fact, the parliament of structed, economic changes and economy could be forms. politicians are also accused of obstructing accountability for the bay report explosion that killed more than $200.00 people. 2 years ago. though in the state killed my brother, they are responsible and we want to know the truth. those who are confronting the system, no democratic change cannot come overnight, but today's vote appears to be the beginning then who their elders ita, labeled. the us says it's urgent israel to carry out an investigation into the killing of a journalist showing of israel has said it's not investigating the case, but the state department spokesman says he expects full accountability for the death of the palestinian american journalists. terry, blinking even over the weekend,
2:19 am
had another opportunity to reinforce this message with his counterpart, foreign minister. lucky as he told foreign minister le pete, we urge the israeli government to swiftly conclude their investigation into the killing of serina blocker. we expect full accountability for those responsible for her killing and to your questions i. e, we have urged that aside share their evidence with each other to facilitate that investigation. and we continue to call on all sides to maintain. com and to prevent elation. what would you say to my colleague, alice, will you sent you a letter today? if you would have, what would you say to assure that he can continue to conduct his job as a job? i mean, he's been doing this for a very long time. certainly appreciate his perspective and the time he took to offer his recollection and his thoughts on the incident that tragically took the life of sharina, ucla. we, whether it is in your i'm sorry and of course,
2:20 am
and of course injured him as well. we are from us not only in recent days, but going back to world press freedom day earlier this month and throughout the course of this administration, we stand with journalists around the world who are doing their jobs in situations that sometimes are unfortunately dangerous. see you as president a new zealand prime minister express concern about a security agreement between china and the solomon islands during a meeting at the white house. joe biden and jacinta are done discuss stepping up engagement with pacific allan nations to counter china is growing influence biden. says the us wants to be a partner rather than dictate to the region. the chinese foreign minister is currently half way through a diplomatic tour of the pacific, hoping to deepen his country's ties. that a white house correspondent, kimberly help it. it was the 1st oval office meeting between the u. s. president and new zealand. prime minister, a chance for washington to counter china is growing influence in the indo pacific
2:21 am
region. but for new zealand, it was also an opportunity to express that when it comes to business, there are no loyalties. he had an exchange of use on the pacific. currently, very clear view on both sides that the pacific needs to determine ends is determining its own rules of engagement and as partners we need to make sure that we're hearing what beer critical focus in areas of interest are for us to partner on. and partnership is key, it is not a donor donnie relationship and nor should it be. and i think that's the approach that i hear from the united states. it's certainly the approach of new zealand, regardless of who within the pacific were engaging with the meeting lasted roughly 90 minutes and included other topics like climate change, trade and even how the united states new zealand could cooperate in space. and that
2:22 am
included the vice president. com la harrison, that conversation. but there was also the topic of gun control in light of the shooting that took place last week in texas. and how the united states could potentially bound assault weapons when it comes to that effort in new zealand. unlike the united states, the new zealand prime minister says that effort in new zealand was met with unanimous support korean pop super group. bts have been at the white house to highlight crimes against asians and people of asian heritage in the us. this, the singers attended as youth ambassadors promoting a message of respect. they say they're devastated by a recent spate of hate crimes. they've also held a closed meeting with president biden in the oval office. while attacks against people of asian descent have risen sharply across the u. s since the start of the pandemic, according to the center for the study of hate and extremism,

2:24 am
chinese immigrants for a period of 10 years to not be able to immigrate to this country. so xenophobia and racism has always been a part that has been targeted on asian americans. and it hasn't helped with the model quote, model minority mess, which is truly a myth because it's essentially a white supremacist concept that has made minority groups pit against one another. in true, instead of truly working together and having compassion as the pandemic was happening, i myself was running for office. and i faced a lot of direct discrimination, particularly around social media. that would say things like, you know, you're not an american. thankfully, president biden is an office and as i said, a completely different tone. unfortunately, we did have a president that felt it was ok to say things and it has, it did essentially allow make people who are xenophobic and racists feel like it's
