1:03 am
given the fact that just weeks ago the united states. and now the creation of the security alliance between the united kingdom, australia and of course the us and in part this arrangement included the sale of nuclear technology at least to power submarines to australia. well, this caused quite a rift between the united states and france for a number of reasons. number one, because france was left in the dark about this deal and it cost the money they had their own deal in place with australia to supply diesel powered submarines. so this was certainly an embarrassment domestically for a manual macro, and also an outrage that he had not been notified about this nor had he been informed that this security partnership or was taking place. so as a result, he pulled his ambassadors from not only australia, but also the united states. they had since been restored. and now this was the 1st
1:04 am
face to face meeting for these leaders. although they did have a very brief phone call to discuss the issue, and as you heard there the u. s. president, once again, underscoring that it was a clumsy error on the part of the united states to really insulted ally as such as france an important ally. and you heard there from emanuel macro, the sort of moving forward. and acknowledging that there is an important relationship despite these mistakes and what matters is what happens in the coming weeks. months and years earlier, you as president biden visited, pope francis at the vatican to discuss the climate crisis and waste the end. the corona virus pandemic, after the 2 day g 20 meeting by didn't, will had the glasgow for the culp 26 you and climate summit. james space reports from room president biden with the pope, a deeply personal and spiritual moment for the u. s. is 2nd ever catholic president,
1:05 am
but also a chance to discuss the most pressing issues at the top of the list, the climate emergency, the biden administration and hope by now to have passed its massive spending legislation, giving the president the ability to match his words on climate with action, but there's been no breakthrough. as the u. s. president toward rome with his motorcade of 85 vehicles, the un secretary general said all roads to success at the climate conference in glasgow in just a few days passed through rome. what is the minimum g 20 countries must deliver at this summit? for there to be a chance of success at cop $26.00 in glasgow. we asked you above what the scientists tell us that are the levels of emission that should be needed in 20, said he, and in 2050. and it is clear that he leads nowhere.
1:06 am
if developed countries will try to blame emerging economies and the emerging economies will try to blame developed countries. these is the moment for everybody to the maximum g. 20 leaders have been arriving in the italian capital, including some like the australian prime minister, scott morrison, and the brazilian president jebel scenario, who faced the most criticism from climate campaigners. a senior un source has told me that the priest summit negotiations conducted by the leaders envoys known sherpas have been extremely difficult. there's been some positive movement on the global distribution of cobra, 19 vaccinations, but on the key issue, the climate emergency has been absolutely no progress. another issue complicating things is the fact that some leaders, notably russia's president putin and china's president, she will not be traveling to rome or glasgow and will be attending this g 20 remotely. james bayes al jazeera rome climate protesters are demanding

1:08 am
michael jacobs is a professor of political economy at the university of sheffield, especially specializing in climate change. he says, richer countries have not kept their promises to assist poor nations. we know that up to 2019 there wasn't enough money flowing from the rich nations. the worlds to poor ones, and by enough i don't mean what actually the poor countries would really like, but what the developed countries had promised as long ago, 2009. and then again, in the purchase agreement, in 2015, the rich nations promised that they would mobilize a $100000000000.00 a year of finance to help poor countries. both reduce their emissions and adapt to the climate change they've already experienced by 2019, however, only $80000000000.00 had been raised per year in that year. so til 20000000 shorts of the of the promise go. now i think it's quite likely now that in glasgow caught
1:09 am
26 in a few days time, we will hear that 100000000000 more has just about been reached or will be reached in the next few days. but many developing countries will say that simply isn't enough. paris said that that should be a floor. we need more than that. when you look at the conditions that many poor countries are experiencing, you can understand their demand for more. ah, it's been almost a week since a large group of migrants set off from the mexican southern border city of tampa. trula aiming to get to mexico city for many, their final journey will be the us. but while passed the caravans as their, as they've become known, have been stopped by mexican authorities. this one has managed to advance. john holman, has more now from southern mexico. ah, it's a tough awakening to the group of more than 3000 people who are moving through

1:18 am
it would put you in breach of a trade agreement. lexi o'brien has more from paris. the british captain has been summoned to appear in court in august next year. he's accused of fishing and french waters without a license. he had on board about 2 tom's of scallops when his boat was checked and seized, taken to the horses laugh earlier this week. now those checks were part of this escalating route between the u. k and france over the rights to fission, british waters and particularly waters around the island of jersey. a u. k. crown dependency that lies just 22 kilometers of the french coast. francis wasn't given the licenses it deserves and that it expected under the post bricks at trade deal. and that has got it incredibly frustrated. so on tuesday is, is it, it will unveil what it's calling targeted measures. if it doesn't get the license, it licenses it wants, it said that it will stop british vessels from docking and french ports that it
1:19 am
will stay pop chicks, time consuming health and a health and safety checks on trucks going in and out of the u. k. and that could have an impact on shops like the one behind me, because france is the gateway to europe for all of those british fishing vessels and the fish that they try to sell it to the continent. there are lots of measures underway to try and prevent that happening, including possibly looking called a brush, half meeting in rome. the sunday on the sidelines at the g. 20 meeting between president emmanuel mccall and the u. k. prime minister at boris johnson. now both sides are being accused of ramping up the tension to play, to a domestic audience. president, a call will be standing for reelection and april next year. and the votes from those c side towns where fishing is a lifeline could be crucial to his re election. and that's the view from france for brendan now has been following developments from london. the tension continues and it's kind of spreading as well. there's also i detect some red faces on the british
1:20 am
side. let me explain why. basically, this english british scholar dredge was stopped by the french authorities because it was said that it didn't have the proper paperwork to be fishing in the area that it was the operator of the boat at mcduff shellfish said this far as i was concerned, they thought they didn't have the right paperwork. george eustace, the environment secretary, the, the government minister said in the commons in the parliament on thursday that he did believe it had the right paperwork and had a license. but they were reported. it subsequently been removed from the list of approved batch and today like the shellfish, the operator, the boat now seem to be admitting that the vessel had slipped off the list of approved boats to be fishing in that area because of a clerical error on the case side, now apparently deaf for the departments involved is frantically trying to get to the bottom of this, but it could appear that it's actually the case problem. and that's why this boat
1:21 am
has been impounded by the french because of a clerical error by the british. nevertheless, the british crying foul because they believed that the 0 tolerance enforcement that the friendships have begun as a result of the escalation of tensions over fishing rights around jersey and the u . k. channel islands. the 0 tolerance is in itself an intimidation tactic by the french. how this is all going to calm down is not clear yet. children as young as 5 could soon be receiving covered 19 vaccines in the united states after the food and drug administration authorize the pfizer is new child size. the doses successful pests were conducted earlier this year on 5 to 11 year olds. the vaccines are a 3rd of the strength given to adults and teenagers. the lebanese ambassadors, the saudi arabian bahrain have both been given 40 and i was to leave those countries. saudi arabia is also recall that some basketball and will stop all
