glory of america, what's working and what's not, why people were only talking about this. it wasn't at the top of the agenda. if america can handle multiple challenges on multiple fronts, we need to go back to school. the bottom line on algebra ah, china denounces the u. s. diplomatic boycotts of next year's beijing winter olympics, calling it a pretentious act. ah, hello there, i'm this tells you day, this is al jazeera life and her also coming up. u. s. president joe biden, and russia's vladimir person repairs a virtual summit as tensions remain higher of a conflict in ukraine. the u. s. is forced to resume a controversial trump era immigration policy that makes migrants weights in mexico
while their cases are hard. and where we wanted vaccines, they just kept, you know, you bring us the crumbs from the table. so africa as president hits out at governments over their failure to deliver on promises of coven, 19 vaccines for africa. ah, now china is threatening firm counter measures against the u. s. after an announced a diplomatic boycott of next year's winter olympics, and beijing, american government officials will not be attending the event because of what they call human rights atrocities. and genocide, chinese embassy in washington has called that decision, a grave distortion of the olympic charter, who will have more reaction from beijing in a moment. but 1st, this report from catalogue has had a young political tension between the us and china,
now playing out and next year's winter olympics and beijing, you as president joe biden said for weeks he was considering a diplomatic boycott of the games over china's human rights record. particularly what washington says is genocide against weaker muslims in shing young province. the biden administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the beijing 2022 winter olympics and paralympic games given the pierre scenes ongoing genocide and crimes against a humanity engine. john and other human rights abuses, the athletes and team usa have our full support. will be behind them 100 percent as we cheered them on from home. oh, china is accused of detaining more than a 1000000 weaker muslims and other minorities in camps where force, labor and civilization of women are allegedly common. beijing denies this before the boycott was announced, it warn't of counter measures, but also talked down and he likely impact from the us move scenarios who sure,
you know. yeah. most politicians who clump a boycott for political self interested, or just showing off and hiking things up with nobody cares whether they come or not . and it will have no influence on beijing success in hosting the winter olympics. the boycott is moving forward despite recent effort to stabilize ties, including last month's a video meeting between biden and chinese president seeking pink. i think what we're seeing now is both united states and china testing the waters and going back and forth on politics and the olympics become a platform or a proxy for engaging in political verbal batteries. let's just hope it stays at verbal. we're entering a perilous moment and the olympics are sort of ante up the tension between the 2 countries in ways that are much bigger than the olympics. the u. s. also applauded the woman's tennis association for suspending all tournaments and china over concerns for the safety of chinese tennis star panko. why? with lympics coming to the u. s. in 2028. there are now questions about how china
may respond both in the short and long term. katia lopez of the young al jazeera and in a briefing just within the last hour and china's foreign ministry spokesman says the us will pay a price for that decision. you may vote, he's will, you know, georgia, the us extending opposed to athletes and sports lovers across the world. china deplores this and rejects this and has launched sullen representations and will take resolute counter measures. the u. s. should stop politicizing sports and stop disrupting the beijing winter olympics with words. otherwise it might harm bilateral dialogue and cooperation in a series of important areas and international regional issues. well, let's now speak to katrina. here she's in beijing for us. katrina, china rather on surprising a perhaps not missing their words here. that's right, china's clearly furious. it says that the u. s. will pay,
but it hasn't detailed what those counts measures might be. an earlier in his statement, jell, the gen, the foreign ministry, spokes person accused the us of political prejudice. ideological bias, political manipulation, and having sinister intentions. as we hud waging says that the limpid should be used as a tool for international unity. and that any diplomatic boy runs counter to the spirit of the games, not when addressing the issue of alleged human rights abuses. engine john, the foreign ministry spokesperson said that these were simply fabricated. now the us of course disagrees. it says that china's treatment of the muslim league of population, that amounts to genocide, many human rights groups say up to 1000000, we get has been in prison. they say that force labor and sterilization are common. now they doing has repeatedly dismiss this, saying that any actions that they've taken into young have been all about stumping out extremism. now we have other countries who are currently considering diplomatic
boycotts as well, including the u. k and canada. and that's certainly going to be a bad look for aging. they were really hoping for positive objects during the olympic games. they wanted this 2022 winter olympics. the 2nd lympics held in china to represent china's new found power and influence in the world. and it will certainly damage the country's credibility if a number of western countries do not attend. now, unless that we have spoken to say that if these countries do choose to follow suit and say that the officials will not attend the events, this will no doubt escalate. tensions between china in those countries, but it is unlikely to change china's behavior or china's policies. domestically so far we've only had one major world leader confirm that they will attend the games and that has in russia's, vladimir putin, katrina you there with the latest for us from beijing. thank you so much. katrina.
while meanwhile, new zealand is also saying, it won't be attending china's winter olympics at that dramatic level, but says that decision mostly has to do with coven 19 and travel logistics. but the deputy prime minister also says there concerns about human rights still exists and have been raised with beijing. we make very regular statements around our views on human rights issues with respect to china and the prime minister's rise most directly with prisoners g. i'm way it we are already not attending diplomatic level as it were. and so it's a hypothetical from apples because now police in the gambia fight tear gas on monday to disperse supporters of a presidential candidate who's refusing to concede defeat. the electoral commission has declared incumbent adama barrow. the winner of saturday's pole was 53 percent of the vote. i'm an address has the latest now from bundle. this is the moment or position support to see blues, choir t,
i guess. as they gathered at the home of acquisition, beauty, benita, who said to double the test kind of happened at dublin hall, just across the street from the united states embassy in the said it could be area . oh, support his claim. the kennedy was robbed in saturday's presidential election and they would back go incumbent item a battle as again be declared president is foster. i'm came after the oppressive 22 . 0 for my lead a job. i want barrow to step down. they rigged the election. the results are worse than what was announced during yard jamie's rain. even he didn't defeat the u . d. p. with this margin. witnesses say the skirmish began after a storm was cast at the police with and responded with t, i guess and arrest incidents like this have been reported elsewhere. witnesses, sake clashes have happened between supporters of the governing party and the main opposition lana for him to do his own one. nothing happened with that.
i got the wrong one. right? no, no somebody down here. all right, it was it vanities? no. i don't remember these hopes of gum bias. post election period would be $31.00 dash by these incidence. now even the position of opposition leader, we'll say new double regarding the outcome of this election suffered a setback on monday, one of the candidates who attended a meetings house while the results of the elections were rejected. cold and congratulated preston, adam about election. observers from both the african union on european union filed more major problems in the electoral process. or are the candidates like had you for some have already conceded defeat st. gubbins? have spoken. why do we'll get to we'll be, wouldn't this not my prerogative to imply that water is their voice?
if there was this, it is forced to accept the police of issued a statement by way to deal with troublemakers. i miss him opposite your supporter saying they would back down. it could be a toast post election period for the gabrielle. i'm a decrease algebra, but june. the gambia o concerns of a new conflict in ukraine is said to dominate talks between the u. s. and russian leaders later on tuesday, president joe biden's as promising what his spokesman called enduring and meaningful costs if the build up of russian drapes, east of ukraine's border results and an invasion. meanwhile, vladimir putin has denied that an invasion has planned planning nato, for the need to position his military as a bulwark against its expansion. eastwards he's likely to demand security guarantees from biden, while the white house press secretary says the talks are an opportunity to show you as support for ukraine. sovereignty is an opportunity for the president to
underscore, of course u. s. concerns with russian military activities on the border with ukraine and reform, reaffirm the united states support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the ukraine. it's also an opportunity to discuss a range of topics in the u. s. and russia relationship including strategic stability, cyber and regional issues. i but you can certainly expect that ah, the are, are concerns about the military activities on the border will be a prominent part of the discussion. all cadre leak is a senior policy fellow at the european council. she says the u. s. can't meet the gremlins demand to keep ukraine from joining nato. i don't think by then when want to expand nato touring his term in office, but clearly not in his plans, but stopping it officially for goods, but would require a unanimous decision by all nato allies and actually redrafting some of nato's
internal documents. so he cannot clearly deliver on him on, but i'm sure that he will try other means to deescalate the situation because he doesn't need a crisis in your crane. i think thought denise, serious about seeking control away ukraine, future political choices. and ideally, russia really would like to discuss european political order to carry tilda and ukraine's place, which should be outside nato. so i read all but mobilize ation, military mobilization as a whole west to discuss raises, who's actually putting pressure on the west to discuss the issues. but the 1000 wants to discuss because the west clearly has been shunning but conversation whenever russia has tried to make stars on it. i don't think that's preparation for actual invasion like a coming weeks. but say,
it doesn't make it any less dangerous because i think russia is quite serious about its ends. so we could still see a military attack, except it would come suddenly, we would not see months of preparations leading up to it. we'll still ahead here on out of there, not backing down, find out why people and say they will not stop her. and rebels in northern european lose control of more territory, but they say it's all part of the plan. ah, ah, look forward to burritos guys. with sponsored by capital airways. hello, thank you for joining in. we've got 2 major weather makers, one in the west, one in the east for going to begin in the west right now. this is our 2nd named storm of the seas and storm bearer as
a barrel. lean into ireland and britain toward that southwest corner of ireland. we'll see those winds blast up to a 130 kilometers per hour. and we've got shield of snow northern parts of england into scotland, 2 centimeters lower ground, but the higher you go 15 centimeters and a batch of rain is while up to 50 millimeters to be expected. now there's atlantic rain also shopping in toward the top end of the barrier. it's going to have a big impact. so for the northern coast of spain, we could see waves about 6 meters high, 40 millimeters over 12 hours. the risk of flooding in those winds howling at 90 kilometers per hour. and if we look toward the balkans, that shield of snow is now pushing into sophia, bulgaria could pick up about 5 to 10 centimeters and that energy in the central bed moving toward the east in the eastern bed. and we've got a fire hose of rain here for antalya. i think 50 millimeters on top here and those when 75 kilometers per hour when this weather report in africa right now where it's a beauty of a day and watch at at $28.00 degrees. martini coming off,
that when again, syria at the arab cup. ok, that's it for me. i'll catch you later. susan. ah, the weather sponsored by katara always pop in less than a year after the middle east 1st. well come in preparation. the country is a major problem of the 16 nations going head to head in 6 part the stadiums for 2020. so we'll keep you across the action as capital for the regions. biggest event, the fee for our cup on algebra. ah ah
hello day watching out a 0. let's remind you of our top stories. the south. china says the u. s. diplomatic boy, cause of next year beijing winter olympics. could hom relations? american government officials will not be attending because of what they call human rights atrocities. and genocide, police in the gambia have 5 t aghast to disperse opposition supports as their present. adama barrow is declared the winner of saturdays election with 53 percent of those protesters say you saying you dubbo should have one concerns of a new conflict and ukraine. i'll said to dominate talks between us and russian leaders later on tuesday. vladimir putin has denied that an invasion has planned, blaming nato, rather for the need to position his military as a buffer against its expansion eastwards. on to the pandemic and south africa as president has stepped up,
his fierce criticism of the way that countries have reacted to the new army, cranberry. and so we're, i'm opposed, made those remarks during a peace and security for him in senegal, saying that western governments have also failed to deliver corona virus vaccines. they promised to africa from docker and nicholas hack reports. the fight against the new alma chron variant in senegal starts here at a health center in downtown to car. we're doses of the coven. 19 vaccines are available. why would they, could they? not? because we have a vaccine that we are immune, we need to keep protective measures and protect those around us. it's not over at the to day peace and security form held in the car on monday, south africa as president cerebral posts are accused rich countries of creating health apartheid. i have personally really been disappointed in the approach that the rich countries have taken on the issue of vaccines. firstly, they hoarded to vaccines. they ordered more vox is than their populations required
. and when we wanted vaccines, they just kept, you know, giving us the crumbs from their table. and the greed that they demonstrated as something that is quite, quite disappointing. indeed, particularly when they say they are our partners. the pandemic overshadowed the 7th piece insecurity form held here which welcomed heads of state intelligence officers and military chiefs. usually discussions and the forum revolves around greater military cooperation between western nations and african countries. but with western countries breaking their promise to supply vaccines in their unwillingness to wave patterns, to allow people here to make their own trust is eroding with some nation, looking at new partnerships, to help the fight against covey in africa,
china, and out it's sending 1000000000 doses of vaccines on the fight against arm groups in this a hell region. new year's president admitted that al qaeda affiliates are in some places better equipped than the security forces of some countries in west africa following increased attacks. molly, seeking help from the russian mercenaries working for wagner, the private military company. thus way, countries like marley, we have decided to go more and more for diverse education of our partnerships. we can work with china, we can, we'll give her russia, also at the form of delegates from western nations reiterated their good will and intentions. but countries such as south african, senegal, c, that's not good enough. vaccines made in africa for africans is what they want. almost a quarter of a 1000000 africans are reported to have died of the virus so far. the message here is those death were preventable if only victims had access to vaccines. nicholas
hawk al jazeera de carr o. meanwhile, france is closing night clubs and imposing strict social distancing rules in response to the on the con, variant prime incentives on cost acts as the country is now in its 5th wave of this pandemic that he believes high vaccination rates and the re introduction of some restrictions will prevent the need for more law downs and customers on board young ladies. good. we see where the risk of infection is highest. it's when we're gathered in festive occasions. when we eat drink wine, when we're standing in doors in close contact with each other. obviously without masks, it's in office leaving drinks on the seminars, end of year festive moments. it could be in the house, a big dinner among friends. a house warming is all my message is very clear until the end of the year we take it easy. we pause, we protect each other and we also save our ability to enjoy christmas. and now the
mayor of new york has announced plans to make covet 19 vaccinations mandatory if at all work as they're in the private sector. it's the most sweeping corona virus related, measured by any state or major city in the u. s. bill diblasio said children above the age of 5 will also soon need to have had one dose of a vaccine in order to enter restaurants and faces. cases in new york are rising and there are concerns about the spread of the only con variant. i describe the actions we're taking today as a preemptive strike. get ahead of this problem before it deepens and used the thing that works. vaccination, we can talk about all the other tools and we will with zach nation is the central weapon in this war against coverlet. so one thing, those worked every single time across the board on a strategic level, it's a reason new york city is back in. so many ways, there's the reason we can avoid or shut down to restrictions. and now a growing number of schools students in south career have tested positive for coven
19 since they went back to class late last month. nearly 1500 students tested positive in sol alone last week. not more than a 30 percent increase from the week before. and the number of critically ill patients will say hit record high. now moving on and ethiopian government forces, say they have one more ground against rebels from the north. the degrees people's liberation front will t, p l f appears to be retreating in both am hora and a far regions that neva t grey, where the rebels are based. now soldiers loyal to prime minister abbey af meds have taken back the towns of dessie and come bolger. they are strategically important because they sit on a major national highway. meanwhile though, a spokesman for the to ryan forces confirmed, they have withdrawn saying, we left north show our culture and jesse as part of our plan. there was no organized unit to liberate these towns and the residents. noah's and abby's generals know it. things are going according to our plan. the rest is just circus.
