who, from the military track down the home, faced huge challenges in thailand due to the covered pandemic. russia shows off. it's not a time to fire pilot president cruising, talking tough on these countries, navy de ah, trinity, as president said, he dismissed prime minister machine, she and suspended parliament for 30 days and moved the speaker of parliament, russia lucy, says is unconstitutional. literally inactive party has labeled that a coo, extra security force units have been deployed around the parliament building and preventing access. it follows nationwide process. so over the handling of the corona virus pandemic and a struggling economy crowds. ingenious, i've been celebrating after the president's announcement, president guy side says he's taking over executive powers. i'm going to point a new prime minister. i'm not, i don't, i wouldn't. you have to have
5:02 am
a sudden. the 1st decision is to freeze all the powers of the parliament. if the constitution does not allow the parliament to be dissolved, but it does not stand in the way of freezing all it's all said. the 2nd decision is to lift the immunity of all members of parliament, and for those of whom a cases related says, i will take care over the public prosecution. meanwhile, there's a standoff outside. the gin is in parliament, the gates are locked in the speaker, russia. lucy and other members of parliament, of inc told, are not allowed in collections said he considers to this is institutions to still be standing and is called an m p. 's to consider themselves still working for the people that are out there. i mean, at least decisions have no basis in the constitution nor in the law, and we are against them because in short, it is against the constitution against the revolution and against public and
5:03 am
private liberties in the country. the president meet misinterpretations that actually clashes with the reality about they didn't allow anyone to enter this place. the whole area was close by police. in every street you see 100 police officers standing by why all this? we are defenseless citizen. we've come to protest against injustice, oppression, and the high cost of living. and we want to dissolve parliament. and we have come down today to resist this regime. they take our money and curse us. they have not done anything to the people, always fighting. it is enough. how can 9 ministers rule an entire country? we have starved and the people are lost. oh, my colleague, mohammed's engine, supported many times from jan, is here. he's joining me now here in the parliamentary speaker. it says to jeans, should be taking this to the streets to end what he's calling a qu. do you think that's likely to happen? well this is the big question right now, rob, i mean you see the roger with a new she,
5:04 am
the speaker parliament is outside of parliament at this very hour and he's in a confrontation. so this is really deepening the political crisis in tunisia at this hour. he's calling on supporters of another to come out into the streets. the worry right now in tunis, i've been speaking to some people in tune as is that this could potentially become a lot more volatile in the past several hours since we heard that parliament was suspended, there has been a more of a celebratory tone in tunis because there is so much frustration with the fact that a parliament just hasn't been able to do anything that there's been so much political stasis over the past year, while the coven, 1900 crisis, is worsening while the economy is getting weaker. so now are you going to have another supporters come out? is that going to change dynamic? are there going to be flareups at a time when things are so difficult into an easier as it is? that will only make the situation worse. i want to ask you about something that the president said in the several hours ago. and this all began. he said that he was
5:05 am
lifting parliamentary immunity from prosecution from politicians. not if i understand correctly, he's not obliged to do that under article 80, i believe. but yet he has gone ahead and done it. why do you think that is? so it looks right now this is, you know, very early hours rub, it looks right now like this is essentially a lever that the president i studied is essentially telling members of parliament that yes, i've lifted immunity. and that if you don't get in line and do what needs to be done, you will be prosecuted. there have been statements made by him in the past few hours to indicate that if there are members of parliament who have been looked into, who potentially are facing prosecution for corruption that they will be prosecute. and that he will lead that prosecution team. it gets trickier though, because even though you have this big constitutional question right now, there is no arbiter to actually figure out how deep this constitutional crisis is. because there is no constitutional court that's been appointed into nisha in line
5:06 am
with the 2014 constitution. so this all gets very thorny, but it does look as though the president, who has, you know, for a while now, wanted to have a technocratic government in place, wanted to fight corruption. that's one of the reasons why he is quite popular with the people in tunisia. it does look as though he will go after those members of parliament who he perceives to be corrupt, who may have been investigated and who may have prosecutions looming. i know you're gonna be sticking with us for the next few hours as we'll see what's going to be happening on the streets of chinese. yeah, but for now mama jumped to him. thank you very much. and dude, i want to bring in william laurence. he's professor of political science and international affairs at american university. he's joining us by skype from washington, d. c. it's good to have you with us again and i'll to 0. i want to ask you about the potential political risk for the president himself because he is essentially if i understand correctly, bringing a tremendous amount of power and centralizing it on himself. he's essentially
5:07 am
saying that he is the one that is able to move the situation forward. improve the economy and improve the covered 19 response, but that's putting a lot of responsibility on him. and if he doesn't deliver, one would imagine she engines are going to be very intolerant about well, this is the problem tonight. and i would not say that the main risk of volatility here is that the supporters show up to defend parliament. i would say the main volatility tonight is what's the military going to do? because, of course, the condition people that wants the military to go after that new. she does a portion that want the military to go after the site and there's a portion, the larger portion in the military itself that would like to stay neutral. but when the military started preventing people from going down to parliament to make it seem to be taking sides. so the big question mark right now is, is this more like july 2013 in egypt,
5:08 am
or more like july 2013 into nisha when we had a suspension of parliament that led to the big breakthrough that led to the nobel peace prize you know, are we going to have a reconciliation here? or are we going to have a military takeover? and this could go either way. if i remember my, my history and it is a little bit vague when it comes to, to you. but my understanding is that the military engineer has historically tended to step back from situations like this and hasn't tried to avoid being drawn into it for a variety of reasons, not least because it does not want to turn against the people of chinese. is there any way, given your experience that you might be able to chart a course about how the military is going to play this? well, i think the military is going to try to stay out of it as much as possible. but there being order to defend the parliament against one political side here. and there are risks of already begun me the rest were indicated might be happening during happening according to my sources. and the parliamentary and who struck
5:09 am
a beer who she's been arrested and the brother of the runner up in the presidential elections is arrested. and these arrests are not really about corruption. your correspondence seem to indicate that more about asserting control and going after anyone who may have been accused of anything. so that parliamentary communities are being sort of attacked in a somewhat arbitrary way tonight. and that arbitrary mrs. is what those who are concerned about defending confusion democracy are most worried about tonight because again, we just don't know which way this president is going to go. having seized power, which he because he says nothing about him seating power. all to deacon suspend parliament for 30 days, and then there's a review that can't happen because there's this court. but he really doesn't have the authority to use power and he's supposed to do it in consultation. and the agreement of the head of parliament, which he just closed down and the prime minister who just fired. and so that's why
5:10 am
this looks like a coo and it looks like a takeover to those opposed to the president who and he said popular with some tunisians but have no political party. i really not much of to say what goes on in parliament to a large. ready degree so this is a real crisis here and it's, it's, it's unclear which way to go, but a lot of it is going to rest on the military. the prime minister may have gone and the parliament may well be suspended. but the problems of course, that she is yet still faces remain with us struggling economy. it does have huge problems in dealing with with covered 19 i but what is the way forward it? i mean, the one with seen it would seem that the president really has a tremendous responsibility to trying to find that somebody is going to be able to fix all these problems and do it quickly. well, this president is a constitutional legal instructor. he doesn't even have a ph. d, and he doesn't really know how to run a government very well. so we're at now the international community rushing vaccines in geneva, the rex rushing and oxygen tax from, from france. and they're trying to deal with the worst coded outbreak in africa
5:11 am
right now to try to bring massive beer. meanwhile, the president fires the health minister and put the military in charge of the coven response, which really wasn't the answer. military is no better at this than, than the help minister that he fired and the health issues that he just opened up the clinics, the vaccination, and there was a rush on the clinics which graded some of the situation here. but what my point here is that there's a failure of governance and the president himself is offering the leadership his solution or simply to fire people a little bit like for us president, rather than the tackle the governance issue at hand. and i don't see any indication that he's going to be able to fix these government problems. what's going to fix that? there's going to have to be an association among the political parties and a new government put forward and approved by this president. and he's been not allowing government to form for a year now as se, again, tried to play this populous card and just shutting everything down and firing people, rather than allowing the government to address the problems of the population with
5:12 am
good governance as its lonestar. so, so, so far, so bad, and i don't really, despite the jubilation of the streets in certain corners of certain cities, and we can talk about where they are, their loyalties are, this is not widespread jubilation. and i don't think other than that the political class has taken a hit tonight. and pete, some people think that might yield results. but so far we don't really see a president that has the authority or the ability to solve these problems. and as well as having the dressing, this is increasing the appearing to be a unilateral decision. how do you think this is going to play out with? chin is his neighbors, like g, for example, or france of course. well, the jury and have their own internal political problems, although they play a huge role in anything that happens in geneva and some of the 1st phone calls to get maitland, there's a political crisis, indonesia are to the jury. so those roads, the phones are ringing tonight and,
5:13 am
but i don't really think the syrians will have much to say or much of a. ready role to play, nor will the french, i think the solution here is going to be the classic tradition back channel negotiation around the people we call it thing makers, people that came out of the business man and, and some of the others. i think you make a deal here to get most of the political party the board. we could have a political solution rather than and outright qu, william lauren's professor of political science and international affairs at american university. we appreciate you as always, being with us on adria. thank you very much indeed. still ahead on our super power plate. russia, china and the us sent humanitarian aid to latin america. a region hit hard by the corona virus pandemic. ah,

5:18 am
the painful images for parents wondering if their children will ever be who is not something that even your enemies will experience will still have interest. i went to what an audio back. so as lead us, we attention should be on the, you know, a new back. and then the parents of the student it's children should not take the actual, didn't want to. we are playing with them. we believe in that it will get well, but really it is not something that you will want to see. but as a situation, we find ourselves and we just have to ticket the student had been taken from the bethel high school in can you tell us abduction from a school in northern nigeria in the past 8 months, nearly 1000 students have been kidnapped from boarding schools in nigeria, north in may, gunman invaded and islamic school in central nigeria and kidnapped 136 students in broad daylight. only 5 of them have so far been released. officious have denied
5:19 am
being run some for kidnapped victims, but many nigeria has done believe that some parents are known. talk negotiated directly, and pete rent them to the kidnappers. kidnapping for ransom is nigi. this past has growing criminal enterprises carried out by gangs, and i'm gross including how many degrees algebra, which are us deputy secretary of state is in china for talks the highest level. biden administration official to visit the country where the sherman visited several regional allies before arriving in john gin sport port city beijing. and comes a week after the u. s. connected china to a cyber attack on microsoft. i had a meeting chinese foreign minister, one you said, whose country won't accept the u. s. taking a superior position. because john j. u. s. has been using its strength to put pressure on other countries and thinking it's superior to others. we need to tell
5:20 am
the us, clearly there's no country in the world, but it's superior to others, and there shouldn't be one. china will never accept any country that claims to be superior to others. if the u. s. has not learned to treat other countries equally, or china and the international community have the responsibility, help us learn this lesson properly. correspond to adrian bryan is covering this for us from hong kong and he's live with me now. adrian just put the tone of the form as he was saying there, one gets the feeling that there's not a great deal of expectation that very much is likely to be achieved with this meeting. yes, indeed, rob. the good news is the 2 sides are sitting down to talk and remember when the showman won't just be meeting one me, the chinese foreign minister should also be meeting sure. fine. who is the man in charge of us sino relation? so yes, it's good that they're facing each other, but the fraction relationship cannot be denied. they are fraught to the moment.
5:21 am
they are in freefall. they were bad under us president donald trump. they are in many ways even worse under president joe biden. so when the showman has to do, i think is to try and see if there's a way that the relationship can be better managed. ahead of these talks of state department officials said that they wanted to create a level playing field. they said that we welcome competition with china, but we want to avoid that competition veering into complex. so we want to see if there's a way of establishing guardrails. why are they meeting? well, just a few months from now rob. the g 20 summit will be held in rome, and of course it will be impossible to imagine the president joe biden and president changing would not sit down in such a setting and talk, so least talks in a way. i think i aimed at paving the way for that meeting. adrian, thank you very much. indeed. that's adrian brown. bring us up to date. what's happening in china from hong kong and the coming hours. the prime minister will
5:22 am
meet us president joe biden. the white house, most of our economies visit follows weeks of discussions between the u. s. and iraq on the question of american troop deployment, defense officials say it's likely that combat troops will be withdrawn from iraq by the end of the year. but the us military will continue to offer advisory support as well as air power, intelligence and surveillance capacity. my kind of reports from washington d. c. i. 7 be off the math of a recent explosion and a busy bagdad market. some 30 people were killed and dozens more injured in a bomb attack for which i saw claimed responsibility. graphic evidence of the presence security threats in iraq as preparations continue for the withdrawal of all us combat forces. but pentagon officials maintain that us assistance to iraq will continue as well. a military presence that is transitioning from
5:23 am
a combat role. busy to an advisory, one, the strategic importance of the relationship between the 2 countries made clear at a meeting between the us secretary of state and the iraqi foreign minister. we are course closes to partners in the fight against basis. and we can take tremendous pride in the work we've done together to defeat isis, and to make sure that it's safe defeated. but i think what today is demonstrating is that the partnership between the united states and iraq is much broader and deeper than even the common fight against isis. the series of decisions by the trump administration, massively complicated iraq's ties with the u. s. chief among them, the abandonment of the nuclear deal with iran in 2018. last year. it was us assassination of iranian general customs money. while he was visiting baghdad, iraq effectively became
5:24 am
a proxy battle ground and the increasingly volatile relationship between the u. s. and iran and they have been repeated calls by sheer factions in iraq's parliament for the expulsion of us forces with parliamentary elections in october. the iraqi prime minister most could be me, is desperately trying to balance his need for us support with the political consequences of anti us sentiment. and complicating this further all continuous attacks on us spaces by iranian, in fact, she, a militia based in syria and iraq. and they in turn, pressured the us president to order military strikes against the militia, bases at the same time as attempting to resuscitate the nuclear deal. this while maintaining a strong relationship with israel, that is deeply opposed to it. what i can save you around will never get a nuclear weapon on my watches. they say the plan to publicly announced the
5:25 am
withdrawal of all of us. combat troops from iraq is perhaps an attempt to de escalate. the ongoing, political and diplomatic dilemma was faced by both countries and as the leaders of iraq and the us meet to discuss the way forward. it's the issue of iran that will be looming over the white house by kind of era, washington, me. russia has sent more than 800 tons of humanitarian aid to cuba after the car to be a nation was rocked 2 weeks ago by anti government protests. it's the latest donations sent to latin america. the region hit, particularly hard by the covered 1900 pandemic rival superpowers, the united states and china. i've also been sending vaccines and authorizing the production of vaccines in the region. dinos why? my reports from one a status. i, the 8800 nation from russia contain food,
5:26 am
medical supplies to help a nation hit hard by the pandemic. cuba seated tourist industry collapse. the help from moscow will be warmly welcomed a reminder of the decades of support. it gave cuba until the collapse of the soviet union 30 years ago. so to will these supplies the native by cubans living in the united states. and then we'll just see that we have a lot of needs when it comes to health medicine, medical equipment, supplies, in general. russia has been active elsewhere in latin america. it's the vaccine, one of the most widely used in the region where vaccine supplies have been sparse. sporadic, unfortunately, of course, latin american, the cur, been only 15 percent of people have been fully vaccinated against over 19 and several countries back on your son he have yet to reach even one person to help rectify that balance. russia is also authorizing the production of it's not seen in
5:27 am
countries like argent tina, while chili has signed to deal with the chinese companies. c novak to make their product in the northern, the city of anti forgot stuff. we don't put a media if this plant is built, it would allow us to distribute vaccines all over latin america with perhaps more to come and not just the duration of the pandemic. so we are look really looking forward to long term collaboration in this country. the russian and chinese authorities were quick to deliver millions of doses as the united states or donald trump was president, appeared unwilling or ready to supply the president bite. and since he came to office tried to make up for lost time. last week, millions of doses of the us will do the vaccine with nature to watch and tina peru, brazil, and columbia. this week, the u. s. center. so the one and a half 1000000 vaccines to home doris under the kovak scheme, that's up to ensure coded relief,
5:28 am
which is less well off countries. here in latin america. so much care where the vaccines come from. they just once a safe, effective job, and then to the cove it 90 night map. however, russia either in the united states are aware that in the region in which they've all long courted influence. many will remember who was there when they needed help . don was wines or else his era when cyrus russia held its annual show of naval strength, its paraded warships, submarines on weaponry on the naval river in saint petersburg and in the gulf of finland. but experts, se, there's discontent with some of russia's armed forces. sonya gay g reports, ah, a daymark, a national tried not to subtlety, a chance to display russia's naval might and even boast about it. especially the president vladimir putin. he went new way and i'm gonna go for that
5:29 am
. i see the russian navy today has everything needed for the guaranteed defense of the motherland on national interest. and we are capable of detecting any under water above water avalon enemy. and if required to carry out an unpreventable strike against it, could mean that the annual procession of war ships and submarines from the new river in saint petersburg to the naval island of crunch. dot takes about 2 hours, an opportunity to show off russia's navy rouse the nation's self esteem from the mother. she, i feel nostalgic, happiness, pride for our state that it has such ships. we know 1st hand how we, americans, and europeans are scared to them or others as well as pride. there is concern with the would you put the video? we're proud of our fleet an army, but on the other hand, i would not like to rattle the sabre. i mean, we can show that we are a powerful state, but not attack and demonstrate aggressive behavior. like it just stays before
5:30 am
military officials had announced tests of new weapons designed according to putin to be invincible. advances that up in critical for a full stop sign into disrepair after the cold war. but yet lacking strategy russians. iteration has for b. fleet. yeah, no fleet specific fleets, baltic fleet, and lexi fleets, and they are not connected in one system and she cannot reach from the one sleep to another. well, sunday's naval display is about proving, otherwise it comes a month after russia said it had fired warning shots and dropped bombs in the past of a british worship. in crimean waters. britain denied the incident saying it had been a gunnery exercise, and the comparative displays may be more about pleasing. a domestic audience is also a very, very serious confrontation between the russian navy and the russian army,
5:31 am
which controls the entire military time generals. the naval commanders are very, very.
