9:03 pm
disgruntled with abbe and aimed to kill him. it was a rare occurrence in a country with a low crime rate and some of the world's most restrictive gun laws. emma can men or q q. so we cannot accept that this violent act took place during an election. the foundation of democracy in the strongest terms i condemn this attack and to the 67 year old was a dynamo of japanese politics and a 3rd generation politician. his grandfather was prime minister, his father, foreign minister with abby distinguished himself as the longest serving prime minister with 2 terms in office. he broad stability to a political system that tended to kind of churn out. prime ministers are one after another. i'm not only dad, but he was also transformative in japanese politics. he made japan
9:04 pm
a much more significant player in terms of regional and i would say, even global security. abbe promoted policies dubbed ib nomics, intended to boost the economy. he wanted to strengthen japan's geo political clout, by amending its post world war 2 pacifist constitution. it proved polarizing among the public and his efforts failed. during his last year in office, he was criticized for his handling of the coven 19 pandemic. is as i say, i've worked hard every single day to revitalize the economy and to conduct diplomacy that would protect the national interest during this time i'm proud of taking on various challenges with the japanese people. oh ha. ah, though i be resigned in 2020 siding, poor health. the following year he returned to japanese politics and continued to wield influence within the liberal democratic party. a man who couldn't shed his
9:05 pm
political skin assassinated for it. natasha rename l g 0. will rob mcbride has covered japan extensively, he has more the reaction by japan's prime minister female cuz she though for me, ok, she that really finds himself an extraordinary situation. finding himself confronted, i think, by a nationwide grief trauma shock and offering off, i think a mix of salis comfort, but also with a sense of defiance. when he 1st arrived back in tokyo, as soon as he realized how grave the situation was, he returned to tokyo. he like others, had been campaigning for these upper house elections. when he 1st spoke to reporters, he appeared visibly shocked, tearful at describing. this is a bar berry kind of malicious act. later on when it was confirmed that she had indeed died, he offered a more defiant tone, saying that these elections must go ahead, must be seen to go ahead. the campaigning will resume tomorrow,
9:06 pm
saturday and japanese people will go to the polls on sunday saying that, you know, you cannot give way to what he calls political violence. that the election process the campaigning, has to continue and paying tribute titian. so ab, a personally as a statesman, as a political leader, as a friend to him personally, but also as a mentor, he was the longest serving prime minister, probably the best known figure in politics, both domestically and japan and also worldwide. and the figure who now is no longer with us or in our top story. now leading politicians have been reacting to senior since so abbeys, death with shock and sadness, and a statement to you as president joe biden express outrage and sadness over his killing. china reacted to the assassination through its embassy in tokyo. he said abbe had made contributions to improving china japan relations. the south korean

president human socio described the shooting as an unforgivable act of crime, french president to minute by chrome, that japan had lost a great prime minister who dedicated his life to his country and work to ensure order in the world at india's prime minister to render mowdy reflected on his recent meeting with our bank, saying he was witty and inciteful as always, is declared a days morning or brazil has also extended a similar honor to latin america. edison lucy newman has more from santiago, one fernando, called for extremely strong punishment against the person who killed the former japanese leader. and he has called for 3 days of national mourning that goes a lot further. and the reason probably is that this kind of a, of a killing is something that he knows something about who remember that he was almost killed himself during the campaign rally when he was running for president. 4 years ago. he was stabbed by someone in the crowd. he knew very nearly died. he
9:08 pm
had to have, i think, 3 operations after the initial, as after he was initially taken to the hospital. so it's, so it's something that he feels very personally i think. and i think that could explain what one might call a very emotional reaction to the assassination of abby and the calling for 3 days of national morning in latin, america's largest country largest economy. once we're not, is not the only one who's outraged and shocked to by the, by the killing of mr. abbe all over latin america. here in chile, the president called about her with crime in argentina, president alberto fernandez called him a great friend of argentina. remember that there were none, this is a left winger politician, quite the opposite of aria. and yet he said that he had, he wished his loved ones well and it condolences all around during his time in
9:09 pm
office shin. so abbe had pushed to reform japan's pacifist constitution. let's take a look at what all this means. japan's cone constitution was drafted by the us off the 2nd world war article 9 renounced war, and only allowed japan to have a defense force that couldn't deploy abroad. shinto abby attempted to revise this aiming to counter the growing militaries of china and north korea. he passed legislation in 2015, the loud japan self defense forces to support allies in foreign conflicts. the move was divisive. the us supported it, but china and north korea disapproved. abbe also face public backlash for many who didn't want to see japan evolved in was abroad. or we'll, let's begin. sheila smith, she is the john e marrow senior fellow for the asia pacific at the council of foreign relations. she joins us by skype, from newport beach in california. thank you for your time. as we've been discussing, their abbe presided over massive constitutional changes in the country and a bid to make it more assertive globally, particularly militarily,
9:10 pm
how were received were those changes? well, thank you for having me up a, it was a very strong proponent of revision of the post war constitution. and his argument was very simple. it was that this constitution that japan currently the house was drafted under occupation and didn't have the imprimatur of the japanese people's voice. so he was not so much focused on article 9, but he was largely focused on the idea that the japanese people themselves should write the document that organized their national governance. he didn't change the constitution. japan's constitution remains on revised, but he didn't change as your piece pointed out. the image government's interpretation of that constitution as it, as it was applied to the self defense forces. and again, this was done by the cabinet in 2014 and then it was codified in law in 2015 and largely allowed the self defense forces to use force in defense of other national
9:11 pm
military is if it was required for japan security. so he moved the needle on article 9, interpretation by the government, but he has not yet it, or he did not achieve revision of the constitution. is it fair to say that he didn't always see eye to eye, particularly with his neighbors? and the reason yes, absolutely. and again, you know, i be himself would not be shy about identifying himself as a japanese nationalist, even when that word seems like a bad word or japan. but he had a, he had a very strong diplomatic relationship with both china and south korea during his 1st time in office in 2006 to 2007. so he was not somebody. he was pragmatic. he did not let ideology or ideas about japan's own interest, get on the way of diplomacy. and in, just before the pandemic hit in 2019 here, in fact went to beijing to meet with china's president sheeting pain to work with
9:12 pm
she on easing the tensions in that bilateral relationship. i most certainly sort of expanded japan's platform on the global stage hosting the g 7 g 20 the olympics of course. but what domestically, what's a good leader at home? well, he was in the sense that he came into office in 2012 and at the very end of 2012, when japan had had an opposition party in government. and the japanese people were very worried about china. the pressures on the same cutler island from east china sea, but also about the japanese economy. so when i came in to office, his priority, in fact, was the economy trying to give japanese hope about the future economic growth potential of their country. and it dubbed a new program of up a nomics which included fiscal monetary and structural reforms of the japanese economy designed to get it out of the malays that had largely been in for decades. and so many people saw him as is as an energized and energetic leader. not
9:13 pm
everything in his package of economic reforms worked. some issues took a long time. and sometimes the benefits of abby nomics did not dribble down into the household, economies of the japanese people. but they saw in him a strong and focused leader, even when they sometimes opposed more, his more nationalistic inclinations to be your chief oil of his constitutional ambition was to do still have more work to do. do you think he did? and so the party, the party, his party, the liberal democrats, have in their platform, the revision of the constitution. but i'll be really put it on the agenda in a way that no previous prime minister had and advocated strongly that it was time for japan to really have its own debate about how it was governed, and the values and traditions that it were embodied in that document he did not succeed in persuading his own party, that the time had come to revise the constitution, but he certainly stimulated the national debate in japan and ver,
9:14 pm
very briefly. how do you think he'll be remembered? i think the manner of his death is going to linger in the way the japanese people remember him. i think they see him as a good, strong leader on the global stage and a great leader in articulating japanese, interested. a time in the world is changing quickly. and not in japan's interests, so they are going to the fact that he's no longer there to guide japan's international relations towering figure in international and japanese politics. so sheila smith, the john e marrow senior fellow of the asia pacific of the council of foreign relations. thank you so much for that. thank you for having me. now. plenty more hands on the news, our including ukraine's hospitals are filling up with war casualties. we'll visit a health center in key if that's been pushed to its limits. taps, running dry and lebanon by roots, water supplies on the brink of collapse. in wimbledon,

finalist aim to inspire a new generation of african and our players, andes. here with that story, ah, russia has vetoed a vote of the un security council that sought to extend a deliveries to 4000000 syrians and the rebel control north western areas. a russian proposal to approve the you and operation for 6 months fail to get required support. you and his warring, the closing the core door could be catastrophic. it wanted humanitarian deliveries made by the bob. i'll how i border crossing from turkey to be extended by a year. well, diplomatic editor james base joins us life the united nations. james, quite literally the fate of several 1000000 syrians hangs in the balance, was the state of playdoh. 4.1000000 syrians
9:16 pm
rely on the single border crossing that brings in aid that they rely on. and these are people who do not have enough food that don't have enough medicine. at the humanitarian situation. in northwest syria is the worst. it's been any time during the war. so what we're talking about here is extremely serious. they used to be authorized in 2014 for different border crossings into syria to bring in aid since then and they're renewed every year. russia has objected to some of those border crossings, and we've been left the last couple of years with just one. the bubble how're crossing this year. russia said we only want that authorized for 6 months. and then after 6 months in january, then we'll, we'll, we'll, we'll consider whether it should be reauthorized by another security council resolution. or that's what russia was saying, the western countries in norway and ireland, which were acting as negotiators on this said no, it needs to be renewed for another 12 months. what we had in the last hour is both
9:17 pm
these proposals. a 6 month renewal and a 12 month renewal put to the un security council. the idea of the 12 month renewal, every one on the security council supported that with the exception of china, which abstained. and russia, which like china, is a permanent member of the security council said no, so they use their veto. they stopped that idea of a 12 month renewal. then the russian proposal for a 6 month renewal. well, that was not voted in that the only people supporting that were china. so we now have a situation at the moment and the existing authorization for the border crossing expires on sunday. for the moment, there is no authorization for this aid to continue across the border, and really important developments the last few moments have just come up stairs from the floor of the security council. and there, the russian deputy ambassador dmitri polanski has just said, we're not going to vote on anything else if they come up with any other resolution apart from ours than we are going to be. so. so he said another country can
9:18 pm
reintroduce the resolution that in the last hours vote to down our resolution and then we will not block it. but anything else other than our solution to this, our plan is something that will veto. i think the security council in a very difficult place, the us ambassador linda thomas greenfield saying in the security council chamber, this is a dark, dark day in the security council. she says it's a life and death issue. and tragically, people will die because of this vote, as i say, we still have some hours we have until sunday evening for some sort of resolution, but certainly the russian ambassador, adept ambassadors, talking extremely tough a life and death issue. indeed, sir. james, thank you. our tip america as a james base of you and there. thanks. now that g, 20 me to get in to nisha has been overshadowed by tensions around russia's invasion of ukraine. jessica washington report symbolic when russian soj lovegrove arrived

9:25 pm
a precedent that has been in place for decades. and this is president biden's answer these, this executive order, which ramps are protection for women seeking care for abortion, which ramps up for protection on the borders of states that have already at a band abortions. there are some 9 of them with many more to coming coming weeks. and he's also a reiterated the administration's pledge to provide free contraception. so a number of measures being taken here, the executive order being likened by president biden, to the executive order past the 960 civil rights era. at once again, the intention is to protect women. but still, having said this, elvis executive order has limited reach in terms of the wider picture. this would require congress to pass. legislating a legislation, reinstating robi wade. and to this end, the president biden has urged the american public to vote for pro choice candidates
9:26 pm
in the november election. just to give us a sense miko of exactly how device, if this issue was or with the initial overturning of roe v wade by the supreme court. well, there's been a very you, her interesting poll produced by the pew research organization, they highly respected a polling group which finds that 60 percent of the american public are in favor of abortion. this is a very significant figure. and givens a right to prison and by then insistent that congress must ch the law. that being said, the, you look at that figure, that is some 38 percent vehemently opposed to abortion. so this is a split that largely goes down party ideological lines. a more than 80 percent of democrat voters support roe v wade and are deeply opposed to his being dismantled by the supreme court. on the other hand, you have son, more than 60 percent of republicans who are in favor of the supreme court action.
9:27 pm
so this is very much a political part is an issue. but if you take the big picture that poll in particular, points to a significant majority of americans supporting the reinstatement of roe v wade and criticizing the supreme court for its decision to dismantle it. michaela in washington dc. thank you. the family of murdered al jazeera journal. sharina black clerk has called on the us president to meet them on his visit to jerusalem next week. they want joe biden to order an f. b. i investigation into her death. she was shot in the head by straight forces while she was on assignment and janine the occupied west bank on may. the 11th at the al jazeera media network continues to demand a rapid, independent, and transparent investigation into sharina, killing police and swollen curve, imposed a curfew after firing tear gas and water cannons at protest ahead of a planned anti government rally. ah,

9:30 pm
a new leader. what's different this time is it's not a different type of policy. it's not parliamentary deadlock. as it was over, teresa may with her get her breakfast deal through. in this case, the problem is the prime minister and in particular the premises judgment, his integrity and the fact that he really lost competence of so many people in his government. and that's meant that, that it's like weird that he's continuing the opposition. labor party still save johnson isn't gone soon. they'll try to force him out using parliament. he shouldn't be desperately clinging on when he has had to leave office because of his disgraceful conduct. and that's why i say the tory party should remove him, and if they don't, we will step up in the national interest and bring a voted though confidence. it's unlikely though that enough, conservative m p 's would back stomach in 2 weeks, parliament breaks for the summer, leaving westminster to the tourists and leaving the choice of prime minister to
