9:00 pm
why they've gotten this so wrong, that to me is political malpractice, the bottom line on us politics and policy, and the impact on the wealth on al jazeera talk to al, just a wild alarm is, can we listen? design is, are making serious f rates in order to in t and to stop the 10 of those. we meet with global use menus and talk about the stormy style. madam analogy, ah, this is al jazeera, ah, hello, i'm adrian for the getting this is, but here's our live from doha, coming up in the next 60 minutes, agreeing to disagree, crisis talks between the us and russia over ukraine, and without a breakthrough. fundamental principles that the united states in our partisan
9:01 pm
allies are committed to defense. that includes those that would impede the sovereign right of the ukrainian people to write their own future. there is no trade space. they're not asli, expire the satellite coalition in yemen, kill more than 70 people and trigger nationwide internet blackout. a powerful explosion leaves a giant crater and flattens hundreds of homes in gonna dozens of fish dead and ah, walkable legend meatloaf has died. at the age of 74 and in sport naomi, osaka is australian open, title defense is over. the reigning champion has been not only in round 3 by amanda and asked him over the united states. ah,
9:02 pm
the stakes were high and talks between the top diplomats of russia and the u. s. over ukraine, but in, in 90 minute meeting between antony blinkin. and so gay love rav ended in geneva without a resolution. first, with the hope for future negotiations. moscow still sticking to its demand that they too should not allow membership to ukraine and other former soviet states. but those demands have been rejected by the u. s. it's european allies and beta from geneva. natasha butler begins all coverage at a hotel in geneva, the u. s secretary of state and russian foreign minister arrived for crucial talks into diffusing tensions over ukraine. antony blinkin and sir gay laughs at the tone early. both said a breakthrough was unlikely. we don't expect to resolve your late work. i do as far as whether the policy i law of
9:03 pm
middleton is doing very well because we are not expecting a breakthrough at this meeting either. we are expecting answers to our proposals after the meeting left for offset. moscow wanted a written response from the us to its demands, including a guarantee that nato will not grant membership to ukraine. something blinkin has repeatedly called a nonstarter, but he said the u. s. would respond to russia if moscow addressed it's concerns and respected ukrainian sovereignty. we've been clear if any russian military forces move across ukraine's order that's renewed invasion. it will be met with swift, severe, and the united response from the united states and are partisan allies. u. s. intelligence says russia has already amassed at least a 100000 troops on its western border and is moving weapons into allied belarus, north of ukraine. the u. s. and russian positions are clearly far apart to blinkin
9:04 pm
and laugh off making very little real progress. but the 2 men did agree to continue to pursue diplomacy as a way of the escalating, a crisis which could lead to war. it was on the shores of lake geneva, the talks between the u. s. and russia led to the end of the cold war, decades on how old rivalries have resurfaced, both sides accused each other regression and relations of dangerously deteriorated . the outlook for the coming weeks is turbulent. natasha butler, al jazeera, geneva live to washington. our white house correspondent, kimberly halgert. kimberly the talks were frank and business. like, according to the secretary of state, nothing was resolved. it looks like they're at least going to continue to talk. what's the u. s. strategy here? yeah, well what we know from the white house press secretary jen saki, and just the last few moments she announced that
9:05 pm
u. s. president joe biden will be heading to camp david with his national security team. what we know from this, and what we can read from it, is that the united states is sending a very clear message to russia. and that message is that if it decides to invade ukraine, it will be met with a strong show of force. now what we can take away from this meeting in geneva is that there is this window of opportunity for diplomacy, the secretary of state antony blake and making that very clear, the u. s. president will be in meetings with his national security advisors on friday, saturday, and sunday they will be mulling over what was discussed in that meeting between entity blinking and survey lab. rob. we know that russia is waiting for a response, a written response from the united states. and to that end, the united states is waiting for a response from russia. we know that going in to this meeting that was held in geneva today. neither side expected,
9:06 pm
any big breakthrough. we know the 2 sides are very far apart. for its part, russia is looking for security assurances. name leads, looking for of further assurance that there will be no expansion of nato and the united states is not prepared to give that at this time. so the sides are, are far apart with regard to that. but what we know is that the united states is ready to act. they say that they've seen the intelligence. the you as president joe biden saying this week that he believes the vladimir putin is going to test the west and is going to invade ukraine. the question is to what scale will that happen? so the sanctions have been put in place. they are expected to be punishing and lasting to some degree. the question now becomes how this is going to play out. it's clear that the united states is serious. the fact that the u. s. president is heading to count. david is just
9:07 pm
a further example of that. so the press secretary making that note in just the last few moments. but again, the message coming from the united states through the secretary of state is that there is this opportunity and the choice is russia. it has the opportunity to deescalate through diplomacy, but it needs to act quickly. i whitehouse correspond. kimberly how could bear reporting live from washington? kimberly many thanks. indeed. let's take a closer look at moscow's demand at once nato troops out of romania and bulgaria and guarantees that the alliance won't add any new members, navy, ukraine, and georgia. russia also wants assurances that the u. s. weren't build any new military basis in former soviet states. they took so far, rejected those demands and says it's up the sovereign states to determine their own security arrangements. in care of the ukrainian president says that he's grateful to you as president joe biden, for his unprecedented diplomatic and military assistance for his country. let's
9:08 pm
bring in petro bo kosky, who's a senior fellow at the democratic initiatives foundation. he joins us now live from marquee of good to have you with us, sir. so they agreed to disagree, but it looks like they will talk further by agreeing to provide written response to russia's demand, as to what extent is the u. s. right now, walking towards russia. yes, we can see that, but i can just repeat the statement that was made by by them that yes, the united states are ready to discuss non station in the strategic and in your grain. they would not discuss decreasing the number of troops in the any country which joined later after 998 while the russian fame and continue to insist that all the countries join made the optim, again, that this shouldn't be literally disarm and shouldn't be left at the russian mercy,
9:09 pm
this is of course, an starter for not neither for norco. these countries have fridays talks, of very least ease the tension, even if temporarily has the us yet given russia a diplomatic off. busy ramp. no, i don't think that the tension decrease on the other. on the contrary, i think that russia will now explore will never abilities of the rest and try, try to get places and point the points of the, the to heat in order to increase stakes in dialogue with, with the united states. it can be an energy in can be arctic, and also gets most encountered. it can be ukraine. of course. what's the mood like in ukraine is about how to people view the diplomatic maneuvers and the united condemnation, at least of russia's behavior by european capitals. the
9:10 pm
events in the international arena change so quick, the general public, can you grant, just kind of look kind of follow it on the people right now in ukraine. i'm more concerned about the con, the, based on the ground spread across the country than involved international talks to the station stance. and people do concern though with the russian troops, but at the same time, people are ready to defend the country. goods took, she said many thanks. indeed petro, because kita in kiev, m, and more than 70 people were killed in an air strike that hit a temporary detention center. who the rebels say the saudi led coalition struck the facility inside a province. the area is a hoot, the stronghold rescue operations are under way to try to find survivors who may be buried under the rubble. well, it will also strikes targeting humans,

9:12 pm
it has more from the un the president, the security council that no way that was no way speaking in its national capacity . the council, as a whole has been meeting, but they've not been meeting about the latest strike. they've been strikes all week in yemen on whose he held territory, but they are in response to an attack on abu dhabi the capital of us, where 3 people were killed on monday. and it's that attack alone that the security council discussed it, didn't discuss it. hundreds of yemen, a gender item, it discussed it under the issue of terrorism, and they focus just on the attack in abu dhabi and they should a statement the security council just on the attack in abu dhabi after that meeting the u. a basset came to speak to reporters, she was flanked by 6 of ambassadors, including 3 of the permanent members, the u. k, the u. s. and france, atlanta, se. but when she spoke to reporters, once again,
9:13 pm
just to speak about what happened in abu dhabi at the start of the week, not about the saudi lead coalitions response. so i pressed her, you will defense on the law has to be proportionate. does it not? on the part of the council, no way speaking in a national capacity said the attack that took place and saddam was on nixon. what you have heard today and you will know, following the work of the council, that this is rare. what you have heard today is the unanimous condemnation by the security council against the terrorist attack against the united arab emirates on monday, the 17th of january. and that is where i was given the navy as many as i'd like to refer to coalition statement on that matter. but i also like to affirm here that the coalition undertakes to abide by international law and proportionate response in all its military operations. that was the comments from the ambassador of united arab emirates. i can tell you that human rights groups
9:14 pm
have been watching what's been going on in the security council. yes, they say the security council should be condemning that attack that took place on abu dhabi. they say that was very wrong, and it should not have that who these should not have been targeting a civilian infrastructure in abu dhabi, but they say it's one sided. the security council also should be looking at what's happened in recent days, and particularly in recent hours in who the hell territory in yemen. i'm sorry, i mean, as the advocacy and campaigns director for yemen at save the children, he joins us now via skype. from among children are reported to be among the dead. what's your organization saying about these attacks? sadly, these are one of the more specific and acts we've seen in the last few years, at least on urine, in just under true attacks in 2 different cities. there are, there's been more than 70 people are being killed and more than 100 injured and we
9:15 pm
expect sadly that numbers that eyes as we discovered more. and as we discovered more people under the double as the paramedics finished their work, at least 3 of the children. and now we are, we are hitting years that they may be a 4th one who died, where were playing in a, in a youth clock. there were just trying to find a source of light to be able to play, to play football in it. that's the one, is the only guilt in this entire matter am for that they were killed last night. the men sadly continues to be one of the most dangerous places in the world for children to grow and remind us, am that of the, of the plight of humans, children just how many right now are in distress. and in need of the kind of aid that saved the children. this is providing the numbers all are sadly, almost 2 or well being thoughtful for us to wrap our heads around. sometimes today in yemen, doub more than 20000000 civilians. that is more than 70 percent of the population
9:16 pm
who are in need of humanitarian assistance. of those there are more than 12000000 children who to day may not all survive. if you have a, an aide stop, they need help to go to school to access hospitals, or just to play and, and be children. in the last week alone in yemen, there's been more than the attacks on hospitals. this did uses significantly that, but i believe your children seek medical assistance or even just be around ab and centers because you never know when is the next a it was going to be under attack. and what is said, the children's message to the parties involved in the conflict in yemen and to, to the international community. we need parties, the conflict with respect, international law and international human to human dice, look and insulate civilians from all this lawrence. it, it is horrifying. and a scene we have never hope to see to wake up after one night to seem more than 70 civilians killed in one attack. but it's also very important for the international
9:17 pm
community to knock left some of these incidents as slide slide. that needs to be an investigation into the conduct that needs to be bigger, influence, excited, or protest. the conflict to make sure that that the civilians are not do not become part of this. for example, the majority of the 70 of were killed inside of that night or this morning. the majority of them were my guidance. there were my gms trying to find a better life for themselves under for their families. and for that they ended up dying in yemen. it is, this is not something the word should be watching and forgetting about and not saying anything about to say the very least. good talk to you so many. thanks david . i'm jody. i mean that from safe, the children still come here on the new south displaced syrians struggle to say warm snowstorms hit their camps and bury their tents. please remember our tongue and famous back hines and this time of need. and remember the man to please more appeals for help in turnip us fights. carrot flights rather carrying

9:35 pm
related to china and north korea for the okay. shita said that he and joe biden spent a significant amount of time discussing beijing during the video call, and they agreed to hold a meeting of the quad, which also includes a stray. leah and india will japan's and incredibly important ally for the us, especially when considering the growing influence and power of regional players. china is the big one, of course, tokyo and washington both raised concerns about beijing's increasing aggression towards taiwan, which it claims its own territory. and there are also ongoing worries about china's military presence in the south china sea, japan's among a growing list of countries to challenge beijing's territorial claim that, of course, there's north korea. japan's neighbor has recently been conducting missile tests with young gang, indicating it may resume nuclear and long range weapons testing. let's talk to david facts now. he's a research fellow, the council on foreign relations join us from solsbury. can i get good data with us?
9:36 pm
david, are the us in japan in lockstep concerning china, in particular, and how to respond to it and the challenges the china poses. i think that they are increasingly lock step over china. i think that that would be a fair characterization. and we see this, especially with regards to taiwan with prime minister to she does predecessor prime minister super when he traveled to the white house, the 2 countries featured taiwan and the point statement for the 1st time in decades . we saw taiwan reiterated again today and the 2 nations are increasingly working together to ensure that they can deter chinese aggression against taiwan and respond jointly and effectively if to turn scale. so i think that increasingly, the 2 countries, you see, i, on the challenge that china and what about north korea, are they in full agreement there to well, you know, it's hard to know why president biden's approach to north korea is so far that he
9:37 pm
hasn't restarted negotiations with the north but nor as he ratcheted up the pressure. so i think what this meeting was trying to accomplish is to get on the same page with an approach or 3. i think the japanese are eager to see what the administration's policy. busy is regarding north korea because clearly north korea doesn't want to be ignored for much longer. we see that it's increasing the missile s in recent days. so i think that they're trying to now craft a joint approach for korea, but i don't think it's necessarily that they are locked up yet. they said that they are missing the quad with a trailer and india, and they talked about an economic dialogue. what are we to make of that? yeah, i mean, i think that the economic dialogue is revealing because in my view, tokyo is concerned, washington is losing out on the economic integration occurring in asia. japan was
9:38 pm
a champion of the c p, p. the u. s. pulled out of that under the profit ministration and it has not react to negotiations. japan and china are both members of the other regional trade block the are set and the united states is not a part of that either. i think japan is concerned that there's a lot of economic integration occurring in asia as the economic center of gravity is moving towards china. and the u. s. is on the sideline, and so far where a year for the buying and ministration. and we have yet to be a real economic strategy for the region. so i think that you're hoping to really push washing in that direction to craft a regional economic strategy. and to really offer a sensible alternative to what china. so is there any area? i don't know, i know that the close allies, but is there any area where they don't quite see why? well, you know, there are still some trade issues as there are between any 2 countries. you know,
9:39 pm
while i talked about taiwan at the outset, i do think there's still some question on how far japan is willing to go. so we need to, you know, have consultations on that to make sure we're on the same page there. you know, for japan with north korea, the abduction issue, of course, is center for japan and they, they believe that it gets a little loss or washington sometimes. but i would also say that clearly the us wants japan and south korea to get on the same page because it doesn't want to the closest allies in the region to be loggerheads. and so far there has been, i would say tension between soul and tokyo. so part of what the u. s. wants to do is to repair that relationship. it's closest allies, get them working together. good. talk to you, david money. thanks cindy. david, fax that solsbury, connecticut. thank you. the pulse capital has imposed tough corona virus measures in the country battles its biggest outbreak. yet the government fails. the daily
