"I mean, he talked about the world's facing this moment of danger, we're forcing the same in Gaza, along with what he called the trip wires that contribute conflict in Taiwan and the of South China Sea. He was quite human. You're here in Singapore and you're surrounded by a lot of business leaders, a lot of chief executives, just like Corey about talking about the danger that we're facing. So a lot of them will focus on the economy, but he really put it very bluntly. He said, look, I'm very uncomfortable, I don't want to be excessively honest, but the last time this happened globally was the First World War, so this is a moment of danger. So that set the tone. Then we heard from the Saudi investment minister, we heard from the Chinese, of course, vice premier, and they both sounded alarms, not in the same tone as the Singaporean foreign foreign minister, they said, look, we need much more cooperation and we need countries to come together. Discussions and so far have been nominated, as you say, about the rise of AI. We had a panel on the power of the people about whether AI will displace a lot of workers or whether there's also something good to gain from that. And then China's economy was also really one of the key discussion points. At the start of this three day forum, tomorrow, we move on to business leaders, especially finance, with the UBS chief and the UBS chief. Yeah, you mentioned U .S.-China relations there, Fran. Of course, Chinese vice president speaking there in Singapore just days before we've learned that U .S. President Joe Biden is going to meet the Chinese leader Xi Jinping. How much of U .S.-China relations are feeding into the discussions of the U .S. here from the vice president on addressing some of these key talks on the sidelines of the Asia -Pacific economic cooperation in San Francisco, where Joe Biden is expected to meet the Chinese leader? But he didn't make it, when he opened the forum, he didn't make it the center of his conversation. And he did say that recent high -level meetings between two countries have raised expectations in the international community, but again, warned protections and de -risking trends. So we haven't really seen, because of everything that's going on, any positive messaging. I think it's, the messaging here is really very much what we see on the market. A lot of caution. He did say, the Chinese vice president saying that the world is big enough for both countries to get along, to try to emphasize that China still remains committed to opening up and is both a supporter and beneficiary of globalization. But if you look at the Chinese economy, from the concerns that we have for it, it's not something that he really addressed. So we'll try and see whether the fact that the global economic recovery is lacking momentum, that will also be exacerbated by some of the troubles that we're seeing in China. Fran, so there are many big names there. I mean, the Goldman Sachs president and COO, UBS, the CEO Sergio Amorti, Citadel CEO Ken Griffin, many of the leading business people are there. I know that Goldman Sachs was talking about inflation remaining a big risk. you What do think you is the, what are we hearing basically from the business leaders in of risks? Yes, he was very good. We heard from John Waldron of Goldman Sachs and you know I think everything is linked actually Caroline. When you look at inflation being the biggest risk, then it goes back to the price of oil, something that Saudi Arabia, the investment minister didn't really want to talk about. But of course it's the biggest concern to the economic recovery. And if you even look at the cost of money, which I think is probably what underpins all of the concerns in the market, so the cost of money and the cost of credit, it's very simple to say look this one is bank to inflation, this one is bank to what the Fed is doing. And then there was a great piece by Tom Orleck, our chief economist, that says there are also structural reforms or structural concerns that they backed 15, 20 years that explain why the cost of credit will stay high for quite some time. And where that ends up in terms of companies going into portfolio building, one no really is quite sure. We also spoke to Jenny Johnson, who is president and chief executive officer of Franklin Templeton, and she says portfolio diversification remains critical because there are these big risks arising without warning. And so at least if you're diversified, you always have something to fall back to. But she did say we'll only get tougher for central banks battling inflation because if you look at 8 % inflation to 4%, maybe that's coming our way, but then the real pain that we could feel in the market is central banks have to get inflation person from 4 % to 2%, which is their target, and that could be the critical moment in the next couple of quarters where we could feel further interest rates rise if inflation get that 4 % mark. OK, Francine Lacqua, our editor -at -large from Bloomberg's New Economy Forum in Singapore. says that its troops are continuing fighting inside Gaza City. We've also heard from Parid al -Fali, the Saudi Arabia Investment Minister, talking about the normalization of ties and Talks the around that issue between Saudi Arabia and Israel are ongoing, but that Pinch on the Palestinian question. I think important to underline this. It was one of the big questions around ...the war between Israel and Hamas. The other issue being civilians, The UN is deeply concerned for supplies reaching civilians within the Gaza Strip, especially ...women giving birth, Israel talking about Palestinians being able to return to their homes after the fighting, but the difficulties of that. Let's bring in Bloomberg's Middle East TV anchor Yousef Kamal al -Din for on more this. Yousef, how significant were those comments from Saudi Arabia's Investment Minister about ties with Israel and normalization still being on the table? I mean, they were significant, but they also underscored what we already knew in that the longer term Saudi Arabia was still open to a reconciliation with Israel and that much of that debate is going to be centered on the outcome of the Israel -Palestinian negotiations and ultimately a two -state solution. The Saudi Foreign Ministry has been quite clear on this in terms of their view on the war today and how that could affect the trajectory of the negotiations going forward, but still very important to hear at a critical time from the upper levels of the Saudi ruling family. What do we know currently about Israel's military offensive in Gaza City? I mentioned the concerns around civilians trapped in the area. What's the today, Yusuf? Well, the United Nations put out a statement saying that over 5 ,500 children have been born since the war started and about 180 women give birth there every day. And this goes back to the bigger calls for an immediate ceasefire or a pause or any way to get in fuel and clean water that is needed to provide safe childbirth conditions. That is what one of their key people said at their headquarters in New York City. And the suffering continues. Innocent people are dying and there's still no clear view on when this is going to timeline. Yeah. Okay. Very interesting to get the latest on that. Yusuf Kamel al -Din, our Middle East TV anchor. Thanks very much joining for us with the latest on that story. What we've been hearing from the Israeli military is that IDF forces are in the heart of Gaza City. That's what the defence minister said late last night, and this as they continue their military operation targeting Hamas. Yeah. Now coming up in the next part of Bloomberg Daybreak Europe.

"About efforts of third parties to prevent the the war which is around corner of the retaliation but there is no there is no Palestinian side in Gaza you can speak to the Palestinians in the West Bank but they are not controlling so in a situation of no address I think that it is almost impossible to prevent the next steps which will be a game in a helping innocent civilians on on the Palestinian side and then again retaliation on the Israeli side and it may be a process you don't see 1100 people more than 1 ,100 people have so far been determined to have died and killed in this conflict mean I'm trying to get visibility on who needs to do what to make this stop and what kind of timeline comes with that I'm breaking my small head to see a way out usually I have ideas to say okay let us now see let a third party be involved I mean unless there is something is which really really unexpected like a a declaration of Hamas that they now prove that they could help Israel and now they would like to turn to another roof and to negotiate or recognize Israel declare or that they they will never use their you know something like this which will not happen then we are doomed to something which is this stupid because is the only way I mean violence and and personally I hate the situation in which you don't have any other way but to use violence you know that it will not change the situation in the long run I mean we've heard from the Iranian side in terms of supportive messages towards the terrible events over the weekend what what does the chronology of events look like from this point onwards does you know Lebanon get dragged in if gets dragged in are we going to see you know a response for the response from Israel then does Iran step up I mean you know where do the dominoes fall yeah it can be the doomsday it you can you cannot know in advance what it might happen mainly because you are not dealing with rational players with rational players even if there is hatred or whatever there is some way out which is not necessarily the cute kindergarten solution I will hit you and you will hate me and I don't see this happening so if something you can of course describe a worst case scenario I hope that it will not happen but it is if it happens Israel will have to to deal with it and to retaliate and to defend itself and Israel has a very strong army the fact that it was totally surprised on Saturday doesn't mean that it cannot deal with the situation we saw the statement from the Saudi foreign ministry which basically tried to remind all stakeholders that they have held the position that a two -state solution is the only way out of this and that the repression of Palestinian rights over the long term just doesn't work what do you think happens to the normalization with Saudi Arabia I mean we were or it felt like we were close to signing a deal between Israel Saudi Arabia and the United States but that looks like it's been pushed far far up I hope that it will stop and you know when when we speak about the two -state solution and I agree that this is the only solution Hamas is not part of it. Hamas doesn't want a Palestinian state. They don't want a two -state solution. They want an Islamic Kingdom.

Usually I have ideas to say okay let us now sit together let a third be involved I mean unless there is something which is really unexpected really like a a declaration of Hamas that they now proof that they could help Israel and now they would like to turn to another roof and to negotiate or recognize Israel or declare that they they will never use their you know something like this which will not happen then we are doomed to something which is stupid because this is the only way I mean violence and and personally I hate the situation in which you don't have any other way but to use violence we know that it will not change the situation in the long run I mean we've heard from the Iranian side in terms of supportive messages towards the terrible events over the weekend.

We saw the statement from the Saudi Foreign Ministry which basically tried to remind all stakeholders that they have held the position that a two -state solution the is only way out of this and that the repression of Palestinian rights over the long term just doesn't work.

U.S. says Saudi crown prince approved Khashoggi killing, imposes visa restrictions on 76 Saudis
"It was just about two pages long but those pages carried the weight of the. Us government will not proven a summary of findings issued by us intelligence agency state that saudi arabia's crown prince approved two thousand eighteen killing of jamal. Khashoggi it's been long suspected that prince mohammed bin salman defacto leader ordered the murder but the release of the summary finding sends a clear signal. That president biden's taking tougher stand against the kingdom than his predecessor. Npr's jackie northam has been following developments and joins us. Jackie thanks so much for being with us morning. Scott hi please give us an overview of the main findings right well just to be clear. There's no smoking gun but you know. There's a lot of circumstantial evidence in this two page report. And let me just read you a line from it. If i could quote the crown prince has had absolute control of the kingdom security and intelligence organizations making it highly unlikely that saudi officials would have carried out an operation of this nature without the crown prince's authorization unquote and scott. It goes on to say that members of his close inner circle were involved. In the killing and dismemberment of kashogi and the crown prince has supported the use of violent methods to silence dissidents abroad. And you compare what's in this report to what president trump said when asked about whether the crown prince had any knowledge of the killing and he downplayed it saying maybe he did. Maybe he didn't and One of the things to keep in mind. You know this report is a summary and there's a lot more evidence that the cia has about khashoggi's death that remains classified this report summary note but Does seem to say pretty bluntly that. The saudi crown prince has blood on his hands What kind of potential impact Could this happen relations between the us and saudi arabia. Which after all has been a very close ally for decades right. yeah well. it's it's definitely bound to have an impact you know. The crown prince is likely to become king of saudi arabia. And we'll be around for a very long time and it'll be interesting to see how the us will deal with him both in the short term after this report and certainly in the long term once he becomes king. We don't know how that's gonna shake out yet but as you say. Saudi arabia is a longtime ally in a really strategically important area of the world. You know in an interview with npr. Yesterday admiral hanes the director of national intelligence. Said it was just too soon to tell if the relationship has been damaged by this. Let's have a listen. It is not surprising. I suppose to see a shift in the relationship in some ways with the new administration and a new position and the number of challenging issues that we face together. But i think there will be what he's to whether the various storms that we have in front of us and one other thing. The saudi foreign ministry said on friday that the kingdom has already jailed. Those responsible for kashoggi's killing and that while it completely rejects the reports findings it called. Us saudi relationships robust and enduring. Jackie calls from From many quarters Clothing members of congress Human rights organizations calling on president biden to to punish sanction of the crown prince For his role in khashoggi's death. How likely does that seem to be. Biden's stop short of severely punishing the crown prince. But he said on. Friday evening that from now on the kingdom is going to be held responsible for human rights abuses and he said that there would be more significant changes announced on monday. He didn't indicate what those might be. But you know the administration did take some other steps yesterday. It announced something called the kashogi ban which allows the state department to impose visa restrictions on anyone acting on behalf of a foreign government Who's threatening dissidents overseas and it's already imposes kashogi ban on seventy six saudis and their families. And you know secretary of state. Anthony blinken talked about these moves by the us yesterday. Here he is. So what we've done by the actions that we've taken Is really not to rupture the relationship. But to recalibrate to be more in line with our interests and our values but apparently this travel ban doesn't include the crown prince himself and administration officials said on background yesterday that as a matter of practice. The us doesn't apply sanctions on the highest leadership of countries with which it has diplomatic relations and already there are increasing calls for tougher action against the saudi crown print
