1:02 pm
ah, welcome to the news, our gulf leaders and other regional heads of states, a gathering for a summit, and saudi arabia, where you as president joe biden, will be laying out his strategy for the middle east. saudi crown prince, muhammad been saba, is hosting the event in jetta by didn't this holding bilateral meetings on the side lines of the summits, including where the rocky prime minister must offer al academy? later delegates will be discussing a range of issues from security corporation corporation to food and energy by done small criticism at home soon after his arrival in saudi arabia am friday by bumping fists with a saudi crown prince. our white house correspondent, kimberly, how can reports us president joe biden arrived in saudi arabia to
1:03 pm
a subdued reception that may have been because of his past comments about the kingdom we were going to in fact make them pay the price and make them. in fact, the pariah that they are applied, she made as a presidential candidate after a cia report suggested the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon may have ordered the 2018 killing of journalists, jamal could shalt g. the president's goal is to reset relations and convinced the kingdom to pump more oil to bring down fuel prices in the united states. i'm doing all i can to increase of supply for the united states of america, which i expect to happen. but strain ties have made that a challenge, evident is biting. arrived at the saudi palace, offering the crown prince just a fist bomb a moment not well receive back in the united states. cuz shock geez,
1:04 pm
publisher. fred ryan, at the washington post, calling it shameful. delivering m b as the redemption he was desperately seeking. and cassandra, his fiance, warning biden, that the blood of any future victim will be on his hands. i'm sure she feels her way. i was straightforward. back then i was straight forward to day, basically said that he was not personally responsible for it. i was earlier and biden's meeting with the crown prince. the press confronted both men drove off, i believe, was the response of the crown prince. he appeared to smirk a serious question left unanswered with reporters, then a shirt out. okay,
1:05 pm
well more in this. joining me now here from auto headquarters is our white house correspondent, kimberly alca, kimberly an awful lot is being made of this public overseas. a senior experienced, weathered diplomat, and now president, surely biden didn't have any choice. well, this is the fine line that the white house was walking, but a, it appears that their calculation was miscalculated. this is something that was strategically planned. the white house had from early on in this trip, started to send the message that the president was of greeting leaders with fist bomb since something he did from the moment he landed in israel. and they explained that this was covered protocol because they felt that this was the most protective way to keep the president safe and to keep germs away from other diplomats. but he saw the president immediately, almost forgetting that that's what he was supposed to be doing. and many times he
1:06 pm
was always double clutching. for example, when he met with the palestinian authority leader markword a boss. he greeted a very warmly. and so there was obviously when it came time to meeting the crown prince. this was very deliberate, this fist bob had been planned. it's somebody that could have been done behind closed doors, but in fact, it was not. it was done in front of the cameras. and again, this was probably designed to be incremental. but in peer was that even incremental was not something that the american public for the most part was ready for. because again, it was the decision of the cia in their report that suggest that they very much believe that the crown prince could have ordered the killing of the washington post journalist jarell coach josi back in 2018. and given that even though the president has decided it's in the strategic interest of the united states to move forward and
1:07 pm
to move beyond that incident, the american public has decided that they are not ready to do so. and that goes for the same for the fiance of about her shoji and also his employer, the washington post. a good believe string to talk to with other regional leaders or how skilled you think boyden is negotiating relations with other leaders in the area? he's extremely skilled, in fact, for many in this part of me, most would say that the hard work that the president has had to deal with with respect to this trip is now behind him. the most controversial parts, for example, some of the difficulty that he had to deal with, or whether it be the, the killing of our own, al jazeera journalists, sharina of, or i, clay, and confronting the israelis, which, by the way, he didn't at least to hear if he did, he didn't make that public, the fist pump and the controversy surrounding that with the saudi crown. prince,
1:08 pm
mom had been selman. both of those controversies are now behind the president, at least for the moment. now the work of diplomacy where the president feels most comfortable is going to be highlighted. this is what he's going to be doing today. he's holding a series of bilateral meetings. some of those have already taken place with the leaders of you, a egypt, iraq. he's going to be meeting with an expanded session where he will be talking energy with the gulf cooperation council. this is known as the g, c. c plus 3. this is where the president feels most at ease because of his years of experience, not only as a vice president, but also as a senator. and he'll be able to do what he really wanted to do all along. and that is, talk about america's role in the region, reassert america's interests in the region, and also to make sure that it remains
1:09 pm
a priority in the eyes of these leaders. because what he's worried about is that iran is asserting itself. and also in the midst of all of this, russia and china are doing the same or i can believe. thank you very much. kimberly, how can i, what house correspond in there? or i will have her bring it in. i want to 0 senior political analyst more and bashar as a talk more about those to my one. i don't dwell on this too much. brooke, bout fis bump. so it's already been laced with so much. symbolism is not necessary . or i personally don't do body language. i do more geopolitical vocabulary. and i think what's important here is not the body language. i think the body language is actually done deliberately by politicians, in order to speak to tv, my even to the press in general. this is meant for television, whatever the, by the language, i listen by mistake, but the deliberate stuff is made to delude tv. right? so i'm not going to discuss but the language that's fair enough. but what we can
1:10 pm
discuss, of course, is what biden called saudi arabia. during the campaign trail in the united states, referred to saudi as a pariah state. he seems to have painted himself into a corner, and now it's at the back truck. absolutely, and i think he's been trying to walk it back ever since he became president. certainly the last few weeks, certainly after the russian war and ukraine and certainly after the crisis began and i think it's not very difficult for the american president to walk back his stuff on human rights. and i think we need not exaggerate the sense relative human rights for american policymakers. because after decades and decades of looking at american policy in the south, in particular, america friends are some of the worst thugs, the history ever known. and the automatic as our lives, and we see them throughout from central america to africa, to the middle east and saw so much. but i think what he succeeded so far, so far,
1:11 pm
that's the beginning is in resetting this new reality that he's embracing. that's different from a bama, different from trump and different from george w bush. his we had to take what he was going back to the basics is based on another 3 ours, right? it's re start thing. american influence, re collaboration, all american priorities in the region and remaking of alliances. and i think in this sense, the last 24 hours last 48 hours. he is succeeding to do just that. whether that will be approved or not, and will actually bring about the results of that intended, of course, remains to be seen. arguably the u. s. sir does say, and it's long list of results. if this meeting already that it's released is that progress has been made over yemen. the un mediated trace of course, is holding us 15 weeks long now. but only after, of course,
1:12 pm
the world's worse human sound disaster there. how committed you think saudi is to piece in yemen? i think they are, i'll say that carefully because they are losing, you know, when a country supported by the united states and others when a very powerful country in comparison to its neighbor, goes into a coalition. and as is unable to wind down the war after 7 years, that means it's, it's as has lost the war and with the hope is being able to send miss isles doors. so he had a, been the either been man, it's basically in as far as i'm concerned, was able to deter them from continuing with a war and not the united states is basically mitigating it in a way that also serves american interest. it's again under biden's 3 d's, right, because we said diplomacy de escalation and the parents, his returning iran, but he's de escalate thing and yemen and emphasizing diplomacy. so once again, i think it's sort of so di,
1:13 pm
and american interest for this worst humanitarian disaster of the 21st century. and how would you define the america's ongoing strategy in the middle east, where you seem to sort of alluded, is almost to kind of a laissez faire attitude, design out of step back after many, many years of almost intrusive involvement. it's actually, it's important that you ask that your question in this way because it's paradoxical, right? what by the saying, i am neither george bush nor trump. meaning i am neither going to go into the region with hundreds of thousands of medical soldiers and get involved with in different wars. nor am i going to do that from thing which is pull out completely from the region and basically render everyone insecure about what america stands and why they're going to basically no longer support anyone in any one's own conflicts, right? so he's basically coming and say, look, we're going to go back to the before 911. we're going to go back to our traditional alliances,
1:14 pm
meaning we will support that what our lives. but don't expect us to get involved in terms of our soldiers and fighting your wars. and i think he said that by them said that in the new way that we haven't heard before before we used to hear mutual interest, mutual values, mutual interest, mutual respect. what he said recently is the relations with the middle east. countries are going to be based on mid on, on mutual interest and mutual responsibility. meaning, he will do what america needs to be done, but he expects no free riders in the region, extra, saudi arabia, u e, egypt, and others to do their own bit. israel maybe not, but the rest yes or model and i'm sure him all about your 3 ours, and the 3 it is as their biden's visit to the region continues. many thanks. m r. bashar al jazeera, senior, political analyst, them plenty more. head on the news hour, including why finance ministers from the wells biggest economies are leaving a meeting, barley without a final communicate. and the trauma of war is taking its toll in ukraine report
1:15 pm
from the hospital. that's coping with cases of post traumatic stress disorder. and in sport england, head to the knockout stages of the women's euros with a perfect record. ah, so like as parliament has begun the process of choosing the next president. in a brief session, former president go to buy a roger packs his resignation. letter was read out by minister ran victrum. a singer is serving his acting president until a new leader is in place. that should happen within the next 7 days. for grammar singer was sworn in on friday, it followed month to protest. so with the most severe economic downturn in decades last cross now to michelle, fernandez to slide for us in colombo, manella out of protest as feel about the current state of play in the government.
1:16 pm
when you have the drama that was played out in pilot and something also, but that's of today's not crept it at the time that will take a few days. but there's an other, israel did a drum, i'm here at an empty field shed at the moment pumping had stopped. but you can see just outside what that means for cues and cues rows upon rows of people like, ah, this crowd of people who are waiting. some of them have been waiting for fuel for 4 to 5 to 7 days. there are numbers sometimes put on vehicles like this are the numbers that the order that the cars have come in, but for many of them the way it just seems interminable, with no indication of how long that's going to be. i have with me a gentleman or motors, he's been waiting 7 days for petro. let's see what he has to say are blynn. i understand you've had a long where did just describe for us your experience. it's been a stressful 7 days her going on my current for non been working day,
1:17 pm
which is our successful. you got to think about money, home from furniture. so it's really stressful. so do you feel is actually of sb now for a full unfortunately, we seem to have some problems with the audio with them and al fernandez there. so we'll come away from that. so for the time being and move on by bringing in your hand perrera, who is executive director of the national peace counsellors for lanka, and economists for the islands newspaper. he joins us sir, via skype from colombo, welcome to the news hour. so how do we go about choosing a next leader and next leadership that isn't tainted by what's gone before? yes, i mean i like to comment done what i was trying to say because my own office driver, he was in the line for 3 days continuously sleeping over 1000 used vehicles because
1:18 pm
he didn't want to need the vehicle. and then he got, he got at gross, got 14 liters a ball having stayed overnight 3 days. and it's hardly anything that's going to run out. but that shows the amount of tests and anger in our society at the moment. while these presidential elections are going to be conducted within parliament, there are a number of candidates and the ruling party has apparently, people talk about the acting president to be that candidate, or that is not certain because the chairman of the ruling party has then nominated someone else the dental y name that's acting president and the chairman gave another name. so that is the station for this post of president. but what the feeling that you know, you know, this parliament that we have is parliament is it's a, it's
1:19 pm
a legal parliament. it was elected 3 at the goal, but it is not really a legitimate one because a people praising has evicted president, the prime minister and the cabinet, the minister, they all sat down. so in a way this parliament knowing all that it prevents the people, it's legal, but not so people like society they are saying is that instead of trying to decide on the president by watching in parliament and legacy meant parliament, the party leaders should try and reach consensus and come up with a consensual candidate who can unite the country, unite and unify the political parties. we need to find the people with the policy with the politician. but then at the moment it doesn't look very good for what we want. and without pat out,
1:20 pm
given that they are currently 15 opposition parties holding 122 seats and the 225 c parliament. how would you build a broad consensus, a broad coalition over so many parties with competing ames and designs? is that that, that is, that is going to be the problem to find a candidate, a person who the acceptable law. but that is what we would like. i mean that, that, that put the boat, i think 10 or 15 for the pot is then the leadership needs to sit down and then work it out. i mean, it's very important. good. already. there is an agreement because he went to stated by the previous president that that should be a short term and inter him all party government, the small government to deal with the prison crisis to get us out of this economic that we are in negotiate with the ins and friendly countries and been
1:21 pm
called fresh election in about in a short time frame, maybe 6 months. well and all of us all wrapped, all of that requires immediate action. doesn't it? not more political wrangling. how do you ensure that the population that people have been out in the streets put on protesting, don't become increasingly frustrated by any further delays this process it. but that is true. they will get very that they want a quick solution and them, and at this family that who look at this, the government is focusing on and dealing with the problems of, of the people instead wrangling among themselves. but it, this is what the people would be even more angry. this is this, the end product of the presidential contest is a member, the c as belonging to the government that did all of a true to a people moment. so that, that, that would be,
1:22 pm
that would make the situation the one bush because then we will be in a deadlock because i didn't have a president on the people rejecting maybe accepted voted by parliament. but the people that rejecting and that will be for further instead, what do i leave and spending a little more time now to try and get this video intensive. i agree very, very difficult. and it quite much of the band and then and a concern to the national interest. john pereira, executive director of the national peace councils for lanka and columbus for the on a newspaper. many thanks for having in the show. finance ministers from the g. 20 nations are wrapping up a meeting in barling and they're expected to leave with no final communicate. they're discussing the global food crisis, global minimum corporate tax and inflation. but differences over the war and ukraine prevented them from coming up with a consensus statement. keith opener is the deputy managing director of the international monetary fund. she says a combination of factors include in war and ukraine on china's approach to the
1:23 pm
pandemic, are impacting the economies of the most vulnerable countries. you just look at our projections for recovery and emerging and developing economies. you will see that, you know, where we think they will be in about 2 to 3 years. is significantly lower than where they would have been in the absence of the pandemic. which is unlike what we see for advanced economy. so there has been a medium term impact medium to long term impact on these economies. now, given that incest rates are going up around the world, that is raising borrowing class for emerging, developing economies. for example, we have about a 3rd of emerging markets who's borrowing costs in foreign currency is over 10 percent, or that is an important marker. so it is getting to be challenging times for these economies. doctors and ukraine. so they're concerned about the trauma soldiers are being exposed to on the front lines. they're seeing
1:24 pm
a significant spike and serious brain injuries and post traumatic stress cases. but as alan fisher reports may outskirts of key, if the best the doctors can do at the moment is patch them up and send them back. the are the injuries of war. you can't see the trauma, the damage from the front lines. this clinic on the outskirts of keep tries to help the patients have p t s d post traumatic stress or significant brain injuries. christina voicemail center is the clinics director, anthony fair. and then i, i, patients of people who lived through the events of the war. our work is focused on psychological trauma that they suffered and we work with them to give them strength to go back to the front line between probably a co vanelle through molly al jazeera 1st made andre at the beginning of the war, a former soviet soldier. he signed up as a volunteer for the ukrainians just days before the fighting started. but on the outskirts of maria pole, he came under fire something he can't leave behind. it's not easy to get her

1:28 pm
of course this rocket fire came just hours after you as president joe biden flew from israel to saudi arabia and his 1st middle east trip as president. would you think? all of us says about attitudes towards biden's visit. yes, a palestinian analyst, sir, in experts who we are talking to spoken to have said that this shows a rejection and a refusal by the palestinian no military groups to the abiding visitor to israel and what it held and the palestinian adversary, the american eas, railey jerusalem. declaration i they said that this declaration was just an injustice agreement held by the american administration. and these really a government and does not hold any justice, sir, for the palestinian people or respects any of their legitimate rights. they did not

1:34 pm
contain while fires in france. spain and portugal northern italy is experiencing the most severe drought in 70 years. and the u. k. the 1st red, extreme heat warning has been issued for parts of england. over some forks has more from the al jazeera where the studio. well, this extreme heat has been pumping its way out of the north west of africa, across spain and portugal, where we have seen some very high temperatures, reco breaking heat here. that sir. warmth is going to continue driving its way further north is over the next few days because of this area of low pressure, just off shore, just of the iberian peninsula. and that's drawing the winds in from a southerly direction, pushing up across france and on towards the british isles. and we are going to see temperatures around 40 celsius in madrid, close to that sin bordeaux by the time we come to sunday. and eventually we'll see that warmth moving across the channel into a good part of england and wealthy. the southern parts of scotland could touch tread 36 celsius in london by tuesday afternoon. fresh air comes back in by
1:35 pm
wednesday. thankfully there was it down to climate change world climate scientists have been telling us for decades now that so we are light, it's a see an increase in the intensity and the severity of the storms and the frequency since 1900 to 2002 we had 9 ties with temperatures of reach 35 celsius in the u. k . and since 2003, that number goes up to 77 of the hottest 10 years have taken place since 2003. as we just heard from everton, climate scientists say europe needs to be ready to cope with more of these heat waves in the future were joining us live from london is tom burke, chairman of e 3, g, 3rd generation environmentalism. welcome to to the news hour. before we go on to talk about what we do about all of their so presumably the jury is no longer out on this . what we're seeing is the results of human activity. yeah, what we're saying that it can be more accurate to say the probability of events
1:36 pm
like this and the intent see when they occur is a result of human activity. so we're seeing more very more heat waves and the heat waves that we're seeing a hotshot. and that's because of the fact that we're burning fossil fuels simple. exactly. no, in northern europe, especially the u. k. a talking about the weather is a fact of life. it's will miss that kind of national art form, isn't it? but but holmes there, for instance, on notes designed to with stress, it would stand such extreme aids, not the same applies to schools and hospitals. a railway stations retrofitting entire countries is going to be extremely expensive. i couldn't agree with you more and you're absolutely right. we're used to thinking of whether as being predominantly cool, wet roth, the draw and so all of our buildings on lifestyles, all of our infrastructure, not just buildings, things like railways are not really designed to cope. ready with
1:37 pm
a kind of temperature where like you just see on monday and tuesday of this week, and so yes indeed, it will cost an awful lot to a doctorate. but what's really important about that need is if we don't stop burning fossil fuels, this problem will go on getting worse. so we can't say, well, let's sit back instead of dealing with the problem, we have to both at that and deal with the problem. at a point made recently by u. k. energy supply is, is that with every degree in temperature and increases energy demand by one percent as people switch on the fans and, and air condition conditioners, how do we cope with that extra strain on energy supplies? well, the 1st, the most important thing is to improve the installation of people's homes. now insulation thinks he's in, but it also helps to keep it out. so we've got to do things that are for structure to cope with. they increasing the much, precisely so that it does not making the problem worse. but we've also got to get
1:38 pm
out of burning fossil fuels to provide electricity as fast as we possibly. often governments tend to put the onus on the individual to make a change in the winter. they tell us to put a put a coat on to stay warm in your house. don't turn the air conditioning too much up in the, in the, in the summer. but surely, governments are responsible for taking the lead on this. there's no way you can add up individual behavior to solve a problem like this, that is caused by the way, restructured our economy over the last 100 years. so, so governments have to intervene and they have to intervene very vigorously. i'm not mean politicians to understand that there are war with and they can't win a war with physics. they have to do the things that are necessary and they will be difficult and they will be politically painful. but they don't all kinds of ways. it's becoming clear. if we do the things that are necessary politicians give the
1:39 pm
