Biden Will Need to Rebuild International Leaders' Trust After Trump's Wrecking Ball Approach to Foreign Policy

"I think one can't overstate what has happened. In the last couple of weeks with respect to joe biden engaging on the world stage but in particular ways it's not. It's not pink cloud to pink cloud with everybody in fact. He had a tough conversation with israel's prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu and the lack of conversation with the saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman sort of sending a message to both of them to that america will have a clearer role even in the middle east. Do you think about it. You're you're trumps favorite leaders. In hamad bin. Salman was perhaps at the top of that list. The first trip down trump took as president overseas. He broke precedent. Instead of going to one of our neighbors he went to saudi arabia. And of course the leader that donald trump would never criticize was vladimir putin asking what you see is joe biden very deliberately picking venues this munich security conference where he gave that speech today. Virtually that's the venue in the heart of europe. Signalling you are friends. You are allies. Not these other guys. the agenda is different. He's talking about democracy sending up for russia. Climate change diplomacy to get back into the iran nuclear agreement so both the tone the settings and the substance is entirely different than what we've seen the last four years so ben what. This is the moment to determine whether some of those alliances have been damaged obviously g. seven is a is a key alliance. Nato is one that was undermined by by donald trump. Is everybody happy to take america back again. Are they okay to say. Let's just forget about the last four years where it's back to business. Well yes no on the one hand it just shows you how extreme the trump policy is or was that joe biden's had to go out of his way to reaffirm we are a member of nato. We honor our commitments to nato. Were back in the paris agreement. From which the us lead in negotiating. We're prepared to have diplomacy to go back into the iran agreement that we took the lead in negotiating a so. This is a sea change. I think the rest of the world particularly allies have thought on the one hand. We very much want america back back at the table back. Defending a set of values back working to solve problems like climate change or dealing with pandemics where trump had been totally absent on the other hand. They just lived the glass for years. And they're looking over don't biden shoulder and thinking who are those crazy people behind you who stormed the capital january six. Can we trust that. The americans won't do that again in four years. Can we trust though. Keep their word. If we want to negotiate a complex agreement like the paris agreement was or the iran nuclear deal. Can we trust. The americans won't just tear it up so his cask is is much harder than just making a speech in setting the right tone. He's going to have to build back. Bill ity month-by-month year-by-year initiative by initiative. Because of the wrecking ball coach. Down trump took to our alliances in our room the world.

Saudis sporting soft-power attempt

"November twenty eighth the green lights over the greed in jeddah will go out and the first saudi arabian grand prix will into life and though twenty formula one qasr raise a mightily impressive in the start of a race. They will need to rev extra to have any hope of drowning out throughout about the propriety of this event occurring at all a row to which this very explainer is about to make a modest contribution. Let's look at the undeniable upsides. I which one take too long in and of itself. The saudi arabian grand prix will doubtless be a splendid spectacle. It is to be held on a street circuit in jeddah the precise layout remains to be confirmed but it seems certain one part of the track will conduct formula one's spelt machines down the konishi the boulevard which hugs the red sea coast. And the saudis will certainly dredge deeply from the bottomless pit of money to rent the proceedings as sumptuous extravagant as possible. It might even be of crucial importance in the context of next season. The saudi arabian grand prix will be the second lost race of the year. So if two thousand and twenty one turns out not to be yet. Another procession led by lewis hamilton. The wheel of his mercedes come at the calendar man lewis. Hamilton starts an incredible qualifying. They could still be much to play playful when the teams arrive in jeddah. So that's the good news. Then there are the reasons why this edition to the formula. One calendar is the stuff of foreign desk explainers. It is hopefully not necessary to reemphasize the variety and severity of the ways in which the saudi regime is one of the world's most repressive. We do not have all day still less all month. It is suffice to say a regime which ethically inclined businesses would tend to regard from the foreign bargepole formula one does not appear overly troubled on this front in recent years alone. Races have been held in russia as a fan bahrain and china. None of whom would be within sight of the podium at any sort of grand prix of human rights. it is probably not outrageous to suggest that formula one's principal objections to holding a race meeting in north korea. Iran equatorial guinea or turkmenistan would be logistical rather than an ethical. So we know what formula one wants from this. What's more interesting is what saudi arabia is off to. Saudi arabia has some history of recognizing the immense soft power possibilities of formula one in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighty s saudi state airline saudia sponsored the uk based williams team australian driver. Alan jones carried their logo to the one thousand nine hundred world championship. Tell checkered flag often goes allen jones. what a wonderful way to pay is nineteen eighteen world championship. Riyadh's re engagement with the sport is being pitched as part of the modernizing reformist agenda of ambitious saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman though it does not feel untoward lee churlish to note that nba if to whole saudi arabia into the mid nineteenth century have made some distinctly old school d to via for example conducting a ruinous rampage in neighboring yemen and dispatching hitmen to murder a vexatious journalist the un's extrajudicial executions investigator. Agnes calamar has just released a report at pains a- damning picture of saudi arabia's role in the murder of journalists jamal has all of which is tricky to square with formula one's commitment to respect for human rights which f. one has typed out on their website and everything it promises to it says he engage in meaningful consultation with relevant stakeholders in relation to any issues raised as a result of out due diligence. A sentence which could have been designed to lull readers to sleep inside four syllables. Human rights groups are already speaking of their hope that lewis hamilton who barring mishap will be defending his seventh world championship. Next season might get out in front of this. How has grown more politically outspoken. This year in particular among the slogans on the black lives matter t shirt he wore at this year's emilia romagna grand prix was women's rights are human rights. A repeat performance would give saudi broadcasters amusing connections. Saudi arabia is clearly keen on what has become known as sports washing the tactic beloved unpleasant regimes of staging sporting circuses. In the hope that they may distract from your moral infirmities and impressed with your economic progress in recent years. Saudi arabia has hosted international gulf tennis equestrian and other tournaments formula one one of the planet's most popular television spectacles. He's a massive step up.

Those questions about what a possible succession might look like the World Sharon Jafari reports the modern day kingdom of Saudi.

Since, then it's been ruled by the same royal family succession has mostly gone from father to son or brother to brother eighty four year old King Solomon took over from his brother into fifteen.

It says the king loves to read to his grandchildren so whenever he went back to New York while says he would buy books as gifts for some on. In the old culture of Saudi culture books never had pictures. That's because the ultra conservatives in the kingdom considered images to be un-islamic, so made sure I brought books a lot pictures. One time was false, as he brought by another bound copy of one thousand and One Nights, a collection of middle. Eastern folktales, and the king loved it. At the opportunity to work with online, I grew very fond of him, but while Kingston Mon- might be the most powerful official in Saudi Arabia. It's his son.

Nowadays, the process of succession is overseen by a special group of authorities yes-men. Faruk is with Carnegie in. For International, peace in Washington, the previous king had established what they call the allegiance council, which is basically a counseled from the surviving sons of the funder for NPS to become kings. She says this council would initiate a process for members of the royal family to pledge allegiance to the new king, but right now there's a problem. The Allegiance Council doesn't have had the last one died, and I think the position has been vacant for over two years now and one member at least of the allegiance council is under arrest Prince Amit faulk says NBA has been controversial figure since they want his made it his mission to consolidate power and supply line any potential competitor.

The king went to the hospital state TV showed him holding a cabinet meeting from there. That's to show that the king is alive and well, and still in charge, but nobody says it's an open secret that MBA's is actively pushing to become king while his father is still around. Why well a number of things one of them is related to the US actually Hamad bin. Salman wants to make sure that he ascends the throne while president. Trump is personally that states trump has been supportive of the crown. Prince says it's not clear if joe. Biden would do the same besides the American election does also the G. Twenty summit in November. It could be a critical moment for MBA's to show that he is in charge. And some people from the Royal Family might not be happy with Hamad bin Salman, being king, so hammered. This might ascend the throne while his father is still alive to make sure that everything goes smoothly. So where does all this leave the US?

Did the kidding of Washington Post columnist Jamal and unfortunately like many things inside Washington there is polarization and the debate is very much politicized, but let me tell you that the concern, the uncertainty about the rule of Mohammad Bin, Salman is certainly bipartisan.

2019: The year business went 'woke'

"Twenty. Nine hundred was the year when Saudi Arabia launched changed long-awaited share offering in state oil company. Aramco D- when Softbank lost its gloss when accounting giant tighten belts and when capitalism went woke. I'm I'm joined to discuss the corporate year with our companies editor. Tom Breath weight and Brooke. Masters are comment and Analysis Edison. Tom Can start with you. Can you tell L. is what happened with the Saudi Aramco IPO. Well it happened. Finally which is serve some progress because it took months and months of delay and eventually This massive oil company floated in Riyadh and now does have the two trillion dollar valuation that was so coveted by Prince. Mohammad bin Salman. Why did it take so long investor skepticism in short? I think one problem was that the Saudis would have liked to have listed this in New York which is the the biggest steepest capital market in the world but the main problem there was that they could have been sued for their alleged role in the nine eleven terrorist attack ax which Saudi Arabia has always denied it opens the window to litigation in the US which they desperately wanted to avoid so. That was one problem that the other problem was that most international investors did not think this oil company which is still fairly. Oh pay can still very much. Under the control of the Kingdom could justify the valuation valuation particularly at a time when oil prices have fallen. And when there is great concern about global companies in a world where carbon one is considered toxic change. They Saudis raise the money. Yeah well it got its public oil company to the local market in Riyadh. What it couldn't do was securer hefty amount of international investors so there was a lot of pressure on local Saudi investors? Some of whom were the same people. Who'll who were held against their will at a hotel the Ritz Carlton Reminders? What happened then? Back in two thousand seventeen. Several of Saudi Arabia's richest families were held old at the Ritz Carlton Hotel People like Prince. Alwaleed who is quite knows. International investor ended up with an enforced stay whilst their assets assets were probed by the state and ultimately some of those assets were confiscated by the state so these same people Saudi Arabia and knocked on their door and and said we'd really like you to buy into the Saudi Aramco. IPO and these people generally said yes. Yes we would very much like everyone else. We would like to buy the shares and so they did and it is floated and this little sliver of equity has been sold. And that is what justifies the two-trillion-dollar evaluation. Now it's not really like apple apple of a massive mega capps who's stock as freely traded. So if and when that ever happens we might get a more realistic assessment of what it's worth. Burke Saudis been a big investor in South Bank and the Vision Fund which. We've had corsage about this year. How Will Scaling Down with the IPO effect Saudi Arabia's ability ability to continue money into what I think we now call the troubled Japanese fund presumably? It might make it more difficult. I mean Saudis already having having to raise more money to diversify the economy and so presumably. They're not going to want to be quite to free with their cash. And of course Softbank is probably not the place that they I would like to put their money anymore. Anyway because Softbank itself by Maceo she son has taken some really big bets on companies that have not so far come good specifically specifically. I think we work would be the most obvious one. which is the shared office? Space Company tried to list and failed to at which point not only did it not sell equity but but it's lenders decided not to lend any money and Softbank had to go rescue it and its valuation has been cut significantly. I'm sure Tom knows exactly by how much he's about. Tell us I think I think from forty seven billion dollars. They tried various levels down but ultimately ends up with a sub ten billion dollar evaluation as you say failed to go public. Can they continue each trade. Yeah I mean as long as Softbank and others are willing to continue to pour cash into it because it is still heavily loss-making but the other thing they've done is scaled back their a growth strategy. So they are not spending as much money on new builds so they think they can get to somewhere near break even in the coming months. They've also filed a lot of people which helps so frank's image of takes quite a battering its credibility. How does that affect its ability to keep them investing well they have been trying to raise a second fund and it has not worked worked as well as one would hope? It's particularly problematic because as you may remember. Their first fund has an extremely unusual structure where it's not just people putting in cash. It's people putting in cash and then also they had to put in loans basically so they don't have as much cash as your classic Private Equity Fund. What have they actually have to pay interest on the money? They've got so I think if they don't have success relatively soon the way it's structured means that the lack of success will be magnified and make it that much harder for them. Son has apologized already. Instead he was to credible and he has also started putting a new governance requirements on the companies that the fund invests in food for them. I've always always been skeptical about some of the companies have invested in some of the valuations. They've invested at. They seem to have got quite late into the private tech game and got into in a massive way EH. One of the most ridiculous investments was wag this company that walks you dock for you which they've just finally pulled out of we. Work is the big characteristic Batson if that went well then or would be fine. But it hasn't so I mean Masan has this ability really proven alibaba to pick one winner that has generated a massive amounts of return. So if there's just one company within this portfolio then it could be judged a success but if you look at companies like Uber which I showed this year and his now full and a third in value if you look obviously we work and the marginal bets like y than as little really to say that this thing is going to be success for the big four. They've had quite the twelve months with so many scandals. What would you say? What did they end up this year? What's interesting is it hasn't been as bad? That is you think I mean. They have been criticized and find record fines record discipline for dreadful audits of companies that leader went bust but in an actual practical level. Their revenues are up and their dominance of the auditing business of the footsie. One hundred is up. They have taken taking a lot of terrible press. And they're probably. I'm guessing having a harder. Time recruiting best in the brightest. But I would not cry for them. The thing to remember is this time last year. The kingman kingman review was suggesting that they ought to be separating audit from other other businesses. Maybe broken up do all this stuff and then the CMA. The competition and Markets Authority authority in April said the same thing and they're going to move forward but nothing has actually happened so in fact life continues for them they still make a lot of money. KPMG I'M G. which is the one that has struggled more than the others has been involved in more of the scandals and also it has had prophets problems and so it has had to do meaningful cutbacks? Axum TRIMs They had famous where they stopped paying for people's phone calls and they took a lot of bad press. But I think it's worth remembering that. If you go back maybe a dozen years. You could've made exactly the same argument. Lots of concern about their dominance of the auditing market. Lots of concern. That audits weren't going well. This is remember post Enron and all that sort of thing and there were four them and there are four now so could they to relax a bit and feel that they've survived the structure phone calls over. This will come back. It's not clear. Their regulator has a new person. WHO's in charge of WHO is actually a serious guy and it is possible? He will try to do more at the moment. There's no legislation giving power to him to do more. It will really depend on how much Boris Johnson government cares about this stuff. I mean it was on the agenda of the previous government. Is it now. We don't

Saudi Oil Field Attacked

Saudi Oil Field Attacked

"The Middle East and global oil markets are reeling after Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure was severely damaged a huge attack this weekend and on Saturday missiles hit an oilfield at a processing plant in the east of the country residents hosted video on social media showing explosions interrupting the Don Call to prayer and huge fires raging iranian-backed rebels in neighbouring Yemen known as the WHO claimed responsibility but it's uncertain they carried out the attack in any case the bombing seems to be the latest salvo simmering proxy battle between Iran and its allies on one side and America alongside Saudi Arabia on the other who the rebels in Yemen who plays this attack have attacked Saudi Arabia many times in the past few years and those tax have been getting bigger but what we saw on Saturday was more serious and unusual than anything before to Sean Joshi is our defense editor. It was eight hundred kilometers into Saudi Arabia so that that very far in from over the Yemeni border if indeed the attack did come from Yemen and and more importantly it struck what was one of the most important components of Saudi Arabia's oil production capability both oilfield and a processing plant and on top of all of that it risks dramatically escalating tensions between Iran which supports the youth rebels and America Saudi Arabia's ally which is currently strangling around economy with sanctions so the scope escalation is now a much greater than it was so America backs Saudi Arabia and has has been working on its policy towards Iran maximum pressure and and what have you how has the trump administration responded to the attacks well. It was over twitter of course Donald Trump hinted at military action. He said America was locked and loaded and Mike Pompeo the secretary of state suggested the strikes didn't come from Yemen. They probably came from Iran particularly around Revolution regards or its proxy forces in Iraq which which are composed of lots of a mostly Shia militia groups some of the reporting that has come out in the past twenty four hours suggests that Iraq might have been the base for the attacks particularly with Iraqi militia groups eager to retaliate for Israeli strikes on their bases there a few weeks ago although the Iraqi prime minister has denied it America also said the strikes were very big they involve both cruise missiles and drones and lots of them which may suggest it could have been a little beyond the abilities of the WHO `this which again would probably point to Iranian culpability. That's correct. Iran's foreign minister has of course denied it he said Mike Pompeo American Secretary of State had failed at maximum Axum imprescia which is the official. US policy on Iran and had moved now to maximum deceit so of course we see we as usual complete denial from Iran and loss of finger pointing from America so with all of that finger pointing going on and all over the potential for escalation. What what do you think happens next well. If it wasn't ron it would be the the latest in a series of provocations that we've seen in the region going back to May when we had alleged attacks on international shipping with mines we had hostage taking of International Tanka spot by Romanian forces and we had the shoot down of an American drone which nearly took us to the brink of airstrikes in late June which were cancelled by trump on hours notice the had been some hopes in recent weeks that we will potentially seeing a little bit of de-escalation. Mike pompeo suggested that Donald Trump might meet his Iranian counterpart Hasaan John Ronnie at the sidelines of the General Assembly that would have been obviously a historic meeting between an American President and an Iranian leader that looks very unlikely now trump has tweeted angrily denying any such thing and this attack of course might represent Iranian hardliners specifically trying to frustrate that sort of diplomacy by Aronie and others so I think diplomacy is now is much less likely it's very hard to conduct any kind of meaningful talks in this in this environment and there's a risk of escalation either by Saudi Arabia whom this is really bad blow all by America and I wouldn't rule out military escalation if we find that more evidence comes is to light showing Iran's hand in this so not notwithstanding the risks of of greater escalation as things stand right now. What does all this mean for Saudi Arabia and for oil production under markets it eats a big blow to Saudi Arabia. The attack cools the suspension of production equivalent to about sixty percent of the kingdom's output which is about six percent of the world's oil production as soon as markets open today in Asia oil prices soared by about twenty percent and reports seemed to suggest the repairs are going to take take weeks which means there's going to be quite a long effect on prices and all of this comes at a time when the the the Saudi state oil giant Aramco was was looking to list to do its initial public offering. How do you think this will reflect on that not terribly well. It is a particularly delicate time for Saudi Arabia who state oil company. Aramco is by far all the world's largest oil company it was preparing to launch a portion of its shares in what was expected to be the largest initial public offering ever as part of VAT. The Chairman of Aramco had just been replaced. The Energy Minister of Saudi Arabia was shunted aside so investors already a little concerned about some of the uncertainty not and security of supply is a big concern to potential investors it lies at the heart of what Saudi Aramco's able to do it make Saudi Arabia not not just a very big oil producer but also a critical player in world oil markets very important geopolitical plan so attacks like this one call into question security is supply and a very bad news for the Saudi leadership and so what are Saudi Arabia's options here well in some ways. Donald Trump has put the ball all into Saudi Arabia's Court with his latest tweet he said the US was waiting to hear from the kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack and under what terms we we would proceed in other words. He's challenging Saudi Arabia to publicly blame her on in the way that America has and essentially to put its cards on the table. If it wants wants to see a robust American reaction now Saudi Arabia usually would fall in line behind America. They are very close allies. There's a very strong relationship. Between the Saudi Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman Donald Trump in the face of an attack like this. They have a very complicated calculation. They absolutely want to push America to throw the gauntlet down to to Iran to put Iran leadership in place to deter Iran from attacks like this but I think they're also concerned about the prospect of escalation about the prospect of moral facilities ability being struck missiles falling Saudi cities a bigger war that would have a huge impact on their economy perhaps on their regime and so this is a crunch point for them. I think they have to decide side. How much do they want to proud donald trump onto action and how much they want to proceed cautiously aware of the enormous stakes for the kingdom itself.

Hatice Cengiz's mission: Don't forget Jamal Khashoggi

"I'm with ruler Caliph the deputy editor of the F. T. and she's had recently rather astonishing interview. She met recently Hattie's challenges who of course found herself at the center of an international drama indeed something of a horror story last October. This is when the young Turkish academic were seen waiting outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul for her fiance who never appeared that man of course was the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi details of whose murder at the hands of Saudi the thugs would leak out over the coming days and weeks so so really just start by telling us. What is the state of the investigation into Khashoggi's death? Well depends what you mean by investigation and which investigation in Saudi Arabia Arabia a group of people are being put on trial but we know very little about this trial elsewhere. There has been a U._N.. report by a U._N.. Expert on the murder however that report does not or have any legal basis it only makes recommendations and it has recommended an impartial international investigation for that to happen however you would need you on Security Council approval and I don't expect that exactly exactly 'cause you're touching on the really important point of the sort of full out of this whole saga namely. It doesn't look as if we're going to be many repercussions for the Saudi regime does it and why is that. I think that there were initially some repercussions for the. The Saudi regime mainly reputational a lot of business. People and political figures stayed away from Saudi Arabia. There was a bit conference. That was a flop but I think over time things of return to normal. I don't think the reputation of the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman the man we know as and BS will ever really fully recover but I think that once Western governments and especially the U._S. government can't say that doing business with Saudi Arabia's fine he was for example at the g twenty in fact Saudi Arabia is going to be hosting the g twenty next year that is kind of rehabilitation Saudi Arabia hosting the g twenty year stunning given all that happened and imagine particularly appalling news for your lunch companion. The other day had tease Chang who is campaigning passionately for Kashoggi's motorists to be brought to justice. is is Here a clip now so I want to know who gave the order to kill them out and who else knew I want to know. Where is his body? I implore you to take action darkness essay. It is time for sanctions so that was her tease. Chang is speaking at the U._N.. Human Rights Council in Geneva last month. The Agnes was referring to as Agnes Calamar the special reporter on extrajudicial killings who had in fact just revealed called the results of this investigation you talking about ruler which found quote credible evidence clothes quotes that senior Saudis implicated in Mr Kashoggi's murder but let's turn to at t's challenges this was a powerful and really poignant. Poignant interview you had to do rule tell us what impression did you make. It was obviously a painful interview. It's painful for her to speak about Sharma but I think she's also now very driven. She is so frustrated by the silence she so frustrated by the fact that there has been no action that she's now turned this into her mission. Jomo Hachioji was essentially fighting for human rights. It's this is what he was writing about and she now feels that she has to take up that fight as I write in my lunch with the F. T. she now knows that she is part of the story. She's been studying the Middle East for a long time and now she feels that she's become one of its victims and there are so many of them so she was fighting back tears the whole lunch at one point when she tells me about the nights when she knew for sure that Jamal was dead. That's when her tears came rushing down one of the many things that struck me about her accounting hug conversation with you was relatively brief had in her relationship with Jamalco. Gee I mean they don't known each other for a few months. I wonder if you could just say a little bit about how they met in the nature of their relationship yes they only met in May of last year they met at a conference about the Gulf in Istanbul. Jamaa was speaking at that conference and she had only known him as someone who should seen on T._v.. She'd read him. She was very interested in Saudi Arabia and she was very keen to interview him about what. What was going on in Saudi Arabia what he was writing about and so she just goes up to him and introduces herself and says can we talk? Can you give me a few minutes and she speaks to him in Arabic because she speaks pretty fluent Arabic and I think that impresses impresses Jamal and so they meet up he asks her by Turkish awesome about Saudi and then she contact him again to tell him when the story is going to be published and two. I think check some quotes that's next time he goes to Turkey. They meet up again but this was a very quick romance in many ways but from what she told me this also has to do with the fact that Jemaah was in a very uncomfortable place ace at the time he was sort of looking for a new life. He'd been exiled in the U._S.. He was on his own so he was looking for a companion and he was very depressed and I think that they found in each other. You know the person she understood him. He understood her and so yes. This was a marathon romance. When he was murdered? He was writing columns for the Washington Post but as his then fiancee points out in this interview he actually in previous part of his life. He'd been an advisor to some members of the Saudi Royal Family Herself says in this interview one of the many powerful lines she says Jamal was from the palace not from outside it. He was not their enemy. Can you tell us why were they so frightened of him. Why did they have to kill him well? It's a very good question Alec. I don't think that anyone really knows why they were so frightened of him but it is also possible that they weren't that frightened of him. They had a strategy. Ah of silencing anyone who was critical of the Crown Prince Jamal wasn't the only one many of journals friends who stayed in Saudi Arabia are in jail and this new regime demint Saudi Arabia requires not only that you don't criticize they require that you approve the reason Jamal had left was because he did not want to engage and to support award a very hostile strategy towards cutter he was required to write in support of the strategy and that's where he drew the line and so there is such an intolerance that even someone who is only a writer actually not a writer who schooling for revolution a writer who wants Saudi Arabia to correct and to move on a better path. I mean you can even argue that much of what he was. Writing was advice to the crown prince but there is zero tolerance. It's not going to be easy for her. T snow is it nearly a year has passed as you said earlier for some parts of the sort of Western business in foreign policy establishment is not quite business as usual but they are going to re apply some of those ties to Saudi. What do you see happens to her now to? She pursue this cause at U._N.. How does she make any headway? I found and her to be very determined. I think that she wants to use the Kalama a report to try to put pressure on Western governments but may be more broadly she. Will become a voice that is just fighting for human rights at some point. I imagine she would even have to address that in Turkey. Because of course there are a lot of journalists who are jailed elden Turkey for hottest today. Her cause is Jamal but I think that she may also in the future want to broaden her course that it's not Jamaa and the Truth About Jamaa which I'm sure she will continue to fight for but YEP. She may very well be campaigner for human rights all is thrust upon her shoulders after just knowing him for a few months extraordinary I think we should end with a clip from Matisse which is also something of a call to arms from in her and she said this at the U._N.. Session in Geneva last month echoing what she said to you in this remarkable interview it's not only my below Jamal who was more that they but also democracy human rights and freedoms the failure to punish murderers F._X.. Also Mr Chair the truth always wins. He's story. We'll take note of those who stood with through and those who did not police take action.

"Nation. The trial is taking place. What I tell people is wait until the legal process plays out and then judges, but don't try just before the process is complete. Is that what the secretary of state told you that? He agrees told you that he agrees with your assessment that the crown prince had nothing to do with it. I believe that the positions of the president and the secretary of state very clear, they said that the evidence doesn't there's no evidence points in that direction. The intelligence community though, had a very different conclusion here. And after the CIA director briefed congress on the details of what the CIA had found the Senate then passed a Bill saying undoubtedly the crown prince knew about what happened. I don't know what the CIA pretty them. But I don't believe that the same briefing that the president and the secretary of state and the secretary of defense at the time received did not point direction. So I think there's a there's maybe a emotions here. They may be exaggerations here. Have you been briefed on what the CIA determined? I personally have. No. But we have communications with them swimming. Penitence channels exactly and the intelligence relationship is one of the strongest assets of the work between our two countries. So I know you would think highly of the CIA assessment when it comes to your own internal investigations. In October is when this murder happened where is Jamal Kashoggi's body. We don't know what do you mean? You don't know. We don't know they said that they the public prosecutor's working to try to stop this. This fact, we have asked from Turkey, and he asked them several times formerly through informal legal channels to provide evidence we're still waiting to receive any evidence. They have your blaming the Turkish government. No, I'm blaming the murderers who committed this crime. You have them you say in custody, though. Yes. They can't tell you where the body is. We are still investigating there. We have a number of possibilities. And we're asking them what they did with the body. And I think this investigation is ongoing expected that eventually we will find the truth not audio courtesy and CBS face the nation. The New York Times reported Thursday that US intelligence agencies. Intercepted a conversation in two thousand seventeen in which crown prince Mohammad bin Salman told a top eighty would use a bullet on kashogi if he didn't return home to Saudi Arabia tempering expectations that Trump administration's piece on voice for Afghanistan said, although talks with the Taliban produced a tentative framework deal negotiations are far from over Zalmay Khalilzad said he hopes a final deal clinched before Afghanistan's election in July combined with the president's plan to withdraw troops from Syria.

"A time when the Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is loosening restrictions on entertainment, but not everyone is excited about celebrities jetting off to Saudi Arabia to showcase their talents. I was shocked all these Saudi activists were very shocked to see that. Mariah Carey have accepted the invitation Omayma alma jar fled Saudi Arabia and now lives in Italy. When she heard Mariah Carey was going to performance Saudi. She started a campaign to boycott the concert. She and other activists they carry is giving legitimacy to the crown prince at a time when the prince should be held accountable. For the murder of journalist Jamal kashogi. We know that there have been artists who came to Saudi Arabia during December in was at the same time this candle of Gemma hush reduce you murder, but what is different this time. Is that Mariah Carey is a woman, and and she's much more. Influential artists Kerry responded to these criticisms saying that she sees this as an opportunity to end gender segregation in Saudi Arabia to which al-najar. The activists response is very flawed ignorant and superficial. I mean, she's ignoring the wars to humanitarian crisis in the world in Yemen. She's a ignoring the fact that Saudi Arabia, code, journalists and other activists have disappeared. And we believe that they have been killed. So it is very obvious that she is trying to compete with a pathetic execuse for accepting the money. Was from vision of love. Maybe it's more a vision of money..

I think it's bit of both. I mean, I saw a one wonderful quit suggested that. Saudi would have been more accepting if Thailand had not confiscated the girls possible, but had confiscated have mobile phone because that was what enabled really gave her access to the outside world. That's created the Twitter storm that really is what has allowed her to stay where she is and possibly get to Australia, which is where she was planning to go, and which she currently had a visa for in the passport that was confiscated. So this all that going on? But I think as you say the the wider aspect of this is that Saudi Arabia is not enjoying a good global image of the moment. And does the kashogi coach case there is the war in Yemen. There's all sorts of other things that have really tawny. Sched the image of the crown prince when he first came to where when he first came to power when it was he was thought of being maybe bit more enlightened going to bring Saudi into the molten age, and really it's been almost backwards since then, and I think in the international context that's been a huge help to the goal. Who is now. I mean, I it looks as though she certainly at the moment protected, and as though she'll be allowed to go to a stranger.

I think this stage after we've had the initial bought up by the Thai authorities everybody is playing it safe. So today, I saw that the sherline government is saying that this case is no different than any other. It'll be processed by UNHCR. And that once they do their report, then the Australian government will process the case normally there is a slight question of diplomacy here. I think Australia is very keen not to necessarily put pressure on the government about this case. The Thai government is keen not to make any moves. That would interrupt the UNHCR's moves here to make sure that they don't invite any further criticism. And then the Saudi it will be very interesting to see what happens the Saudi tie relations after.

You mentioned earlier the military government that can do what they want. But are they feeling any pressure on this at all from Saudi Arabia? I don't think that there's I'm not sure there's much leverage that Saudi Arabia has on Thailand. In certainly the the bigger relationships with for Saudi Arabia in the region or in Malaysia and Indonesia for maybe for obvious reasons. But this is something that, you know, this is a headache that the government does not need right now. And and actually to be honest Thailand itself has already been put under huge amounts of scrutiny over the last four years since the government's come to power in terms of human trafficking records.

"Netflix has pulled an episode of a comedy show that criticized Saudi Arabia's role in the murder of journalist Jamal ca Xiaojie in comedian Hassam Monagas show the Patriot Act he calls out crown prince Mohammad bin Salman for allegedly ordering the death of Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. A warning this clip from that episode uses offensive language blows my mind that it's the killing of a Washington Post journalist for everyone to go. Oh, I guess he's really not a reformer. Meanwhile, every Muslim person, you know, was like, yeah. No, he's the crown prince of Saudi Arabia now, it was the the concluded that bin Salman ordered a group of Saudis to fly to Turkey in October and kill algae. And then cover up his death. Saudi officials deny the crown prince ordered the killing and threatened legal action against net flicks under a Saudi anti-cyber crime law. So let's bring in WBRC Kalemba. Shire's who's been following this story? I call him. It's so fascinating. You know what? How what control the Saudi Arabia have over Netflix? So they pulled the episode in Saudi Arabia. It is available in other places around the world. So talk about this legal threat that convinced net flicks to cave there. And what what does this mean? Well, Saudi Arabia's sent a letter to Netflix citing a law that prohibits quote, material impinging on public order religious values and public morals now, that's very broad, Robin. It basically means the government can can censor anything that they don't like. And what's striking to me is that the whole episode reinforces the point that assignment, I was making in that clip that you just played you know, it puts the lie to the idea that Mohammed bin Salman was going to be a reformer. And meanwhile, you have Menasheh who raised his profile here in the US by criticizing our government at the White House correspondents dinner just a couple of years ago. And when he takes similar jab at the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, he gets yanked from that country. Let's talk about the reaction Jamaica, Xiao, she's. Former editor at the Washington Post. Karen Attiyah tweeted, it's quite outrageous that net flicks. Pull the episode. Social media is calling out Netflix for bowing to censorship. So what is net flicks? I'm what does Manati about that? Well Near Net enough is suggested as well that it really had no choice. It said that it received a valid legal requests from Saudi Arabia. I say the counter to that is, you know, the guardian newspaper has pointed out that the punishment for violating this law. In question is a fine of about eight hundred thousand dollars or up to five years in prison. So I mean that paid hundred thousand dollars chump change for Netflix. And as far as the imprisonment. There is no way Saudi Arabia was going to be able to extradite and imprison Hassan montage in this scenario. So I think it's reasonable to wonder whether perhaps they could have stood up to Saudi Arabia and called their well, they've been a hidden Saudi Arabia. So maybe a business decision air shows like Marvel's iron fist house cards, very popular there just. Very if you got a minute other tech companies that have Saudi investments Uber. Lifts slack. Have any of them broken ties yet not completely, you know, some of the companies did pull out of that big Saudi investment conference back in October? But the longer term business calculation of really everyone has been that the business ties to Saudi Arabia are just too valuable to cut and the irony is that was actually part of Mirages comedy routine too. So here's Netflix producing a show where assignment I slams companies for not standing up to Saudi Arabia, and the Netflix doesn't really stand up to Saudi Arabia's Columba's senior innovation reporter at WBZ our mothership Collin. Thanks so much to be with you. On twelve of the government shutdown. America's national parks are feeling the impact many of them have stayed open.
