going down in south africa and thousands in that the r.c. protest against the nomination of a new election chief considered to close the former president joseph kabila down. low welcome to the program the united states has toughened its stance on china's disputed claims to offshore resources in most of the south china sea calling them completely under full secretary of state might pompei or has released a statement saying beijing is no legal grounds to unilaterally impose its will on the region the move is likely to further increase tensions between the nations earlier china sanctioned 2 prominent u.s. senators for supporting measures against the treatment of chinese weekers our white house correspondent kimberly how it has more. well i think what's so pronounced about this is the fact that up until now the u.s.
1:02 am
had always maintained that when it came to disputes in these territorial waters and the claims that china has made in those waters that this really needed to be resolved at you and back to arbitration so this is a complete departure from that standpoint the u.s. secretary of state in his statement as well as tweets as you mentioned coming out very strong cues in china of bullying accusing china of being completely unlawful of its claims and making clear that the united states is now standing with its southeast asian partners in terms of moving forward that they have been concerned for some time about what they call china's increasing assertiveness and have completely rejected the claims now and again this is something that we had expected but what we see is this kind of tit for tat that has been going on for days we heard from the national security adviser robert o'brian as late as late last week saying that we could expect tough action towards china it's clear that this is the
1:03 am
intention of the administration to send a very strong message well earlier i spoke to china analyst to gordon chang he says beijing is feeding it to the region. i do believe we have a tipping point because the united states and indeed a lot of other countries are deciding that they are not going to ignore unacceptable behavior on the agent's part we have seen especially since february of this year china act in ways which are expression a dangerous and it's pushing against india 6 south china sea and east china sea nations the stress of invasion of taiwan the increased tempo of dangerous intercepts of the u.s. navy and the global commons so beijing is driving this now there's a lot of disagreement over why china is doing this but the point is china is doing this well the next step is really going to be up to china i think that the issue is
1:04 am
going to be driven in part by china's purchases under the phase one trade deal that was signed january 15th china has made it clear that it's not going to be meeting its schedule of purchase goods and services so that is part of the underlying tension but it's also you know china's geo political moves to try to grab territory and try to grab the global comments so i think this is largely in china's court because countries including the united states or really reacting to what beijing is doing. that want to have some health organization says the coronavirus pandemic will worsen if countries fail to read the basic health care precautions it says to many countries are seeing infections fries and there will be no every time to the all the normal for the forseeable future if operations do not follow the basic public codes principles of physical distancing and wishing wedding masks coughing
1:05 am
a ticket and staying home when seek. if the basics aren't followed there is only one way despondent mickey is going to go it's going to get worse and worse and worse but it does not have to be this way. well more than a quarter of the world's record of virus cases are now in the united states it's recorded more than 3200000 infections meaning that one in a 100 americans have tested positive but as cases mount the trumpet ministration seems to be targeting its own infectious diseases expert dr anthony found for criticism president donald trump has retreated a claim that the u.s. centers for disease control the media the democratic party and quote most doctors are lying about the disease trump denies the men are unable to work together.
1:06 am
will have a very good relationship with their kids had for a long time right from the beginning i finally do a very nice person and i don't always agree with them i close the border as you know to china i close i did the ban on china heavily infected and we saved tens of thousands of lives of duct if you will admit that it was a good decision. or particle hane joins us live now from maryland for more on this so the president on the one hand accusing you know the democratic party the center for disease control most doctors of lying about covert 1000 but then also saying that he has a good working relationship with dr anthony found another 2 incompatible with what is that the feeling coming out of the white house. well again with this white house we're seeing a lot of mixed messages we saw the president's spokesperson come out and say what the president was referring to when it comes to doctors was that there was a whole hundreds and hundreds of health care providers who signed
1:07 am
a petition basically saying that you can't close you should close churches and the spokesperson says well they didn't say that about these protests that were going across the country maybe that's because churches are inside which is less safe in the protests or outside which is more safe according to the scientists but really if you follow the trump administration when he starts talking about people as we have a great relationship and his staff starts on the messages behind the scenes usually that means that person's days are numbered that's not necessarily going to be the case with dr anthony fauci and there's a couple of very big differences the president didn't put him in his job he's not a presidential appointee so he can't be just simply fired by the president he has been there for 6 presidents every major national health crisis this country has experienced for decades he's widely popular a recent poll said 67 percent of the american public trust what's coming out of dr fox he's melt when it comes to the coronavirus just 26 percent believe president trump when it comes to this virus so he's popular he can easily be fired but what
1:08 am
the administration can do is try to silence him try to discredit him and what we saw them do over the weekend is put out what journals called it look like opposition research a list of all the times they say that dr fogey has been wrong they didn't put on the list that those were times that the president said the exact same thing and he was also wrong so they're trying to discredit him in that sense but he's very popular not just with the american public with people on capitol hill they can't exactly fire him but they could try to move him they could try to silence him and we've seen that we've heard of several media appearances we're docked if she was supposed to speak in and he's been canceled the white house says he can't go those but he's still talking he's going to pod cast and he's talking to georgetown on a web stream tomorrow and basically he's contradicting the president the president keeps saying everything. the economy can reopen schools can reopen dr freud she came out and said if you look at what other countries are doing in the u.s. just isn't doing a good job he repeated it just it just isn't so he's obviously rightly people

the south china sea calling them completely unlawful the world health organization says the corona virus pandemic will worsen of countries fail to adhere to basic health care precautions it says too many nations are heading in the wrong direction with pricing pricing cases and more than a quarter of the world's record of virus cases are in the united states it's reported more than 3200000 infections meaning one in 100 americans have tested positive. malise prime minister says 11 people have died in protests over the past few days at least 2 people were injured in the most recent demonstrations in the capital bamako police reportedly fired live rounds and heavily armed security forces are now patrolling the streets protesters have been calling for president evo him but had to resign since friday over militia violence and disputed elections in an effort to calm tensions several detained opposition
1:18 am
figures have now been freed and kate assange has resigned this chair of the parliament's the france committee for more on the situation in mali nicholas are joining us live now from dakar in senegal so tell us more about the attempts made by the government and to calm the violence how effective would you say they've been . well it seems barbara for the moment that both camps the protesters and the president and the government are we trenched on their position right now the streets are still being purchased by security forces heavily armed security forces in the streets of the micro person. that is leading this protest movement well his house is protected by a protest jurors who want to allow security forces to come near we are hearing reports that they've been throwing molotov cocktails toward security forces of the
1:19 am
situation in that particular neighborhood still very tense meanwhile president. made some concessions to the protesters notably dissolving the constitutional court that had confirmed the result of the elections of the national assembly that took place and april of course it's unclear whether the president itself according to the constitution can actually. dissolve the constitutional court don't we should go through the national assembly before doing so also as you mentioned in your intro the significant resignation of his son. who was a member of parliament who was reelected just recently and this comes on the heels just friday on social media we saw footage of him. partying on a yacht somewhere in europe while in mali half of the population is living on less than $2.00
1:20 am
a day and or need of humanitarian assistance so his resignation is significant these moves however is not enough to stop the violence because while he has made these moves he has sent out security forces including a commando that was trained by the european union funded by international donors normally meant to fight. armed groups in the north in the center of mali well these security forces are now used to to to to fend off protesters that are protesting peacefully so the situation in mali remains tense and while the european union and the u.n. has condemned the use of force by the security forces the united states and the state department has come out saying that it will not tolerate protesters destroying government buildings alluding to the national assembly on friday that
1:21 am
was attacked and looted by protesters and saying as well that it will not tolerate any type of removal or any type of move that would be beyond the constitution really throwing its weight behind. so there is an international context to this barbara and so this is the current situation in mali the fighting that we saw in the north in the center of the country between armed groups and money and security forces well now the focus is in the capital in the heart of power just just miles away from the presidential palace where protesters want to see brian burke are out of power barbara. cross you will be following developments in mali for us for the moment thank you. thousands of people have been protesting in the democratic republic of congo * against the nomination of a new electoral commission chief side that malone this proposed appointment has

1:23 am
country is in a political and economic crisis they say that things needs to change and it's going back to that nomination of we did speak to some parliamentarians who are saying that the protesters really are directing their anger to the wrong body because constitutionally it's really just bodies that are mandated to nominate the president of the electoral commission and this was done in june and that name was forwarded to parliament for approval but the thousands of people who've been coming out to the streets saying that the parliament should have decided perhaps to delay that decision knowing that that name would be rejected by the population perhaps the parliamentarians would've gone back to the religious leaders to try to make compromise perhaps seen whether there could be a consensus made and i think presidential security now has that opportunity because he has the. ball even if he himself cannot reject that name but he can
1:24 am
always go back to the religious leaders and try to talk to them and see whether they confront a different name and he has said in a cabinet meeting recently that he's going to do that in order to deescalate the tensions in the country right now. kosovo's president has been questioned of a war crimes that a special court in the hague sachi is facing a 10 point indictment on crimes including murder torture and disappearances committed during kosovo's independence war in the late ninety's the fast and reports from the hague. you know sir. leave. singing k.l.a. battle songs former kosovo independence fighters arrived at the court in the hague to show support for their former commander of now president harsh him touchy i am ready to face with a new challenge and succeeds. my family my

1:27 am
of the country could run dry within 20 years what we were really shocked at is that some of these warnings that he made 20 years ago in. progress in dealing with some of these issues particularly around leakage the government has to have some responsibility for making sure that consumers understand about the need to conserve water and we make sure we supply goods that use less power to. climate change means hotter drier summers that could reduce supplies by 15 percent the population is growing and with it greater demand for the way we handle is leading to shortfalls with the report blaming water companies for failing to reduce leaks and when i am peace talk about leaks they don't mean the occasional dripping tap they mean the loss of 3000000000 liters of treated water every single day that's a 5th of the entire country's daily consumption loss because of creaking pipes an aging infrastructure that's 2 and

a half times the amount of water that's in this reservoir in north east london providing parts of the capital with drinking water the same as almost a 1000 olympic sized swimming pools m.p.'s now want a list of worst offending water companies to pressure them into plugging the problem the organization representing the companies responded to the report saying that leakage is a top priority and the progress has been made with leakage down 7 percent since records began the water companies do however acknowledge that more needs to be done and plant a half leakage by 2050. one of the world's leading experts on water conservation says the soil london and surrounding areas sits on make stopping all leaks near impossible. to britain especially in london where we've got 2000000 people who put it down and which is the most difficult environment to have because it's shifting off the pipes i suppose to survive m.p.

1:31 am
that up until now the united states has always argued that when it comes to dispute over the south china sea that it was really pushing for this to go to arbitration un backed arbitration so this statement is a departure from that and that's what makes this so notable the fact that the secretary of state is now saying very clearly in very firmly that the united states stands with it south asian allies. the world health organization says the coronavirus pandemic will worsen of countries fail to adhere to basic health care precautions it says too many countries are seeing infections rise more than a quarter of the world's recorded virus cases are in the u.s. it's recorded more than 3200000 infections meaning that one in 100 americans have tested positive but as cases mount the trumpet ministration seems to be targeting its own infectious diseases expert dr anthony fauci for criticism. thousands of
