8:15 pm
irene you. call our upholding of multilateralism and the principles and purposes of the un charter. which promotes international governance. to fulfill its noble mission of maintaining international peace and security and serving all humanity and peace be upon you. you're watching out as iraq and we've been bringing you pictures from the united nations general assembly where the prime minister of kuwait. has been speaking my want to bring in our diplomatic editor james bays who's at the u.n. headquarters in new york james kohut is often central to negotiations in the gulf region is perhaps not surprising that when he was the prime minister was talking about palestine yemen syria libya the underlying message was that. armed force
8:16 pm
doesn't work and negotiations are key to finding solutions in all these countries. absolutely rob kuwait often plays a role of mediation in the region and speaking that the prime minister who's been in his job for 10 months him self a veteran diplomat you don't even in this job for 10 months but previously 5 years he was kuwait's foreign minister and so he knows all of these subjects very very well i think the most significant of of those because in most of those countries that you've mentioned he just really the existing position of kuwait and in some ways he did that with regard to israel and palestine but i think that is relevant given that some other nations in the gulf. and the united arab emirates have now got ahead and signed peace deals with israel kuwait's position was being like whole other countries in the gulf region being closely watched and kuwait of course has
8:17 pm
been a very long standing supporter of the palestinians he's continuing that position he said that kuwait's principled unwavering commitment to the palestinians will continue and again he's making the point that kuwait sticks to its longstanding position in the position of the international community that there needs to be an independent sovereign palestinian state based on 9067 borders with its capital in east jerusalem and we heard this from quite a few hours leaders at this general assembly it's group. the mole speak it is interesting because we. are part of your problem present. the united arab emirates and bahrain were actually involved of the arab peace initiative which was signed in 2002 a saudi led initiative there are many other states that is sticking with the status quo that not criticizing these peace deals will quite certainly isn't and they're not criticizing the approach of the trump of the destruction but they are staying
8:18 pm
we have not changed all beliefs in any way a troll it's interesting to the gulf leaders we're hearing quite a few of them speaking at the general assembly where normally the only one of the gulf leaders who actually normally comes here is the emmy or but many of the speaking this year including the saudi king and the bahraini king they're able to speak from their own countries whereas normally they'd have to come to new you'll worth noting when we say that it's the emir of kuwait who has been like his country a very strong figure in mediation in the region is still on well and has been treated recently in hospital here in the united states james thanks very much that's diplomatic editor james bays outside the u.n. headquarters in new york protesters in cities and towns across egypt to defying a crackdown on dissent to demand the resignation of president. has been rising over the worsening economy and corruption security forces made dozens of arrests when it
8:19 pm
raided homes on friday morning security remains tight in major cities diana fahmy is assistant professor of political science at long island university and a member of the egyptian rule of law association she explains why this movement has come as a surprise to egypt's leadership and to observers. well this is it really interesting moment in egypt's modern history if you recall just around this time last year this . figure in exile of mohammed ali had emerged and was starting to narron to the gyptian people what was really happening inside of egypt's political elite are really about the president so if we think about since the 2011 revolution especially since the 2013 military coup egypt bingo undergoing a level of austerity measures clamp down state security forces in the streets but he was indicating to gyptian population was something that they didn't know which is the level of internal corruption in the sisi regime but also in amongst him and
8:20 pm
his family members while he was asking the average egyptian for you know these austerity measures but 2013 many people last year this time but many people did come to the street and they came to the streets in the larger cities the difference this time this week is muhammad ali reemerged and calls for the people to come into streets and where they came out this past the 20th and today are in the peripheral cities which is very different than the protests of the past and while the stay security forces for the most part have been quite restrained there have been mass arrests but there haven't been shootings and the squares like we did see last year there have been some videos and internet there i'm verified but for the most part there been massive arrest over 2300 people have been arrested according to amnesty international and just yesterday 150 people appeared before state security forces but not how might that be in reemerged today telling people to come to the square
8:21 pm
so that they can protect one another from arrest because not everyone can be arrested now these are troubling for the egyptian regime for 2 primary reasons is that someone in exile is able to move the egyptian street this is not an expectation everyone. what has been saying if change was going to happen is going to come from within egypt but here you're seeing a person in exile able to move the egyptian street and 2nd people are not coming out in the major cities people are coming out in peripheral cities which means these are the return of what we used to call bread riots people coming out because of the extreme living conditions they live under so the egyptian regime had not anticipated this we as people who study this did not see this coming that someone in exile can move the egyptian street but more so at the peripheral cities are the ones who are leading this moment. dozens of farmers in india have blocked roads and
