12:02 pm
to reach the u.s. mainland president threatening more sanctions but not everyone agrees with his stance i can't reports. for the ninth time this year the security council gathers to discuss yet another crisis centered on north korea an emergency session called for by the u.s. japan and south korea and a grave warning from the french representative this test is another confirmation that the north korean threat has changed dramatically in a few months both in scope and scale the threat is shifted from being regional to global. the u.s. ambassador makes a direct plea to china to place greater economic pressure on its ally and neighbor we need china to do more president trot called chinese president xi this morning and told him that we have come to the point that china must cut off the oil from north korea that would be
12:03 pm
a pivotal step in the world's effort to stop this international pariah but no such pledge from china instead it called again on the u.s. to explore a free for free scenario in which north korea would slow its missile program if u.s. and south korea lowered their military posture on the peninsula this position supported by russia even the clip of what we propose the solution based along the principle of suspension for suspension which in visions of d.p. r. k. stopping missile tests while at the same time the u.s. and south korea decreasing the scale of their military exercises this in turn will pave the way for the principles of peaceful coexistence and peaceful discussions between washington and pyongyang. but this is being repeatedly and vehemently ruled out by the u.s. and clearly while the council is united in its condemnation of the latest missile launch it remains divided on how to respond the question now with the missile
12:04 pm
testing continues will the u.s. continue to seek solutions with its security council partners or decide to go it alone mike hanna al-jazeera united nations as president i'll try and pass attack the british prime minister theresa may for condemning his latest tweets chapter three entail some videos from a far right party group with his more than forty million followers a spokesman for may call trump's actions wrong and chop replied this way trace tomato focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we are doing fine also in jordan has more now from washington d.c. . a wednesday the u.s. president donald trump was roundly criticized for reach waiting three videos which he claimed showed muslim violence against christians and others who do not share the muslim faith the british prime minister through a spokesperson condemned the reach weeding of these videos which had been
12:05 pm
disseminated by a far right wing group or neo nazi group known as britain first the message from number ten downing was that this was inappropriate and it was nothing more than simply disseminating hate and bigotry around the world of course donald trump then fired back late on wednesday against the prime minister to resign may essentially addressing her on twitter and saying that she needed to pay attention to the own country her own country's problems dealing with what he called radical islamic terrorism inside the u.k. that of course is not going down well with a number of people on both sides of the atlantic not only have a number of republican senators condemned the remarks and called on president trump to retract those comments but the communities minister in the u.k. sodje job it is now saying that what mr trump has said is reprehensible and that he
12:06 pm
would use his own position as a public figure to try to fight against this sort of dissemination of bigotry and hatred and of course it is worth pointing out that at the beginning of donald trump's tenure as president there was active discussion in the u.k. about inviting him to visit the country on a state visit and at the time minister job it was saying that people should keep an open mind and not just stand against a trial visit out right but now in light of the dissemination of these videos that have been supported by far right wing groups mr job it's june has very much changed . shell michael cox is the director of international academic affairs at barchester here university in turkey he joins us via skype from istanbul thank you very much for joining us so what does it say to you that the prime minister of the u.k. felt the need to publicly rebuked an ally of the president of the united states
12:07 pm
what does that say to you. well that is obviously a significant misstep on the part of president trump to reach with these videos i mean to even consider retreating in the first place and it was necessary for her to address her constituency both her personal constituency and the entire u.k. population which has a significant muslim population it was what was required in response to the tweeting but when you say misstep that implies a mistake. based on the things that donald trump has done was this a mistake as he sees it is i mean i know it's hard to get into somebody's head but just based on previous actions. it was a misstep in the sense that i don't think he knew the origin of the videos he just felt saw some videos and what i understand is that he reached we did some videos that ann coulter they can serve a comment the conservative columnist and post it and without knowing the source so i don't even think he knows where britney first is or what they represent within
12:08 pm
the u.k. he was just pandering to his base and it was a quick and easy tweet for him to do so in that sense it was a misstep. ok so the president of the united states retreating things that he doesn't know the source and in fact one of the videos that was supposed to demonize muslims one of the people in the videos not even a muslim in the press secretary donald times for they white house press secretary say that it doesn't matter whether or not this is real it's about the bigger danger is there a danger and that that is absolutely correct that there was no reason for president trump to have retreated these videos that was wrong from the beginning and the fact of the matter that he or his social media team couldn't even bother to do their homework to see where the source of these videos was was even more incriminating when it comes to this incident ok and will quickly before i let you go we've already talked about in previous reporting what damage this may or may not do to
12:09 pm
u.k. u.s. relations more importantly what impact might this have on muslims around the world . well this is going to significantly stir up muslim populations around the world that specifically in the united states represented by president truman and the u.k. which were were the videos were originated in terms of being produced by britain first it will not make things any easier for president trying dealing with the muslim population in america no will make things easier for him when he visits the united kingdom from michael cox thank you very much appreciate it they have the roman catholic church has just arrived in the bangladeshi capital after four days in neighboring million mark we have some pictures of this happening right now so the pope has been criticized for not publicly mentioning there were a henge a refugee crisis while he's in me and mar more than six hundred thousand right f.
12:10 pm
led to bangladesh since a military crackdown and ma'am are began in august so again this is the pope right now arriving in bangladesh our karl strafford joins us now from cox's bazaar many of the my hands are refugees are living in camps so. charles that the big government what opportunity does is half for them that the pope will be there and there's a father platform to talk about there will head to refugee crisis. yes i think it's very important for the bangladeshi government to highlight the ranger crisis during the pope's visit we know certainly that tomorrow the pope will be meeting a select few of range of refugees that have been selected from the camps here that are traveling to the car to meet him we actually met them before they left and very telling the words that they had to tell us respect to the crisis situation here just how desperate the situation is we spoke to one guy who's going to
12:11 pm
a car he came here. by boat with his ten sisters ten brothers and eight sisters a month ago he said that the pope has to do something to help us he described him as a religious man a man that has huge publisher see obviously globally and can do something to help what's interesting though is that the particular status of the ranger here with respect to the bangladesh government the bangladesh government do not call the ranger refugees they call them displaced myanmar nationals and that's probably indicative of the fact that although they have been hugely generous with the amount of aid that they put forward in this effort they do not want the ranger here any longer than is strictly necessary and let's not forget that there have been rainy here tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of ranger here for a long time the latest figures we understand according to the international
12:12 pm
organization for migration is that there's more than six hundred twenty five thousand ranger that have come in since august the twenty fifth more than sixty percent of them are children and the aid agencies that we speak to say there are still serious problems with getting the right amount of food in for these people thousands are still coming in every week they're also big problems with water and sanitation. believe now that up to seventy percent of the wells that have been dug in these camps since this crisis started in august could well be contaminated. so there are huge challenges ahead it's hope that the pope's visit will go some way to highlighting this crisis. also it's very interesting to recognize with respect to bangladesh his position on this that it is come together with me and more in the last few days with what it's described as
12:13 pm
a plan for an eventual repatriation process of some of these refugees now the aid agencies that we've spoken to say that this process is this plan certainly at this stage is farcical now one of the big difficulties if that process if that plan is to go forward is the identification of the ricky jay here because of their particular legal or lack of legal status inside myanmar and this is our report. and his family fled their home on the medium of bangladesh border a month and a half ago. the myanmar military were taking woman away and raping them we saw them burning home ali so was everywhere. following huge international pressure myanmar has agreed to work with bangladesh on a plan aimed of insley allowing the regime drift to return to plan entails refugees staying in temporary camps close to their property and destroyed homes the rangers
12:14 pm
have suffered decades of persecution they often described as the largest stateless people in the world. i'm never i know what our main demand is that they recognize us as romania and then we may go back to. it when you take a look at the various identity cards issued to the region that you begin to understand how vulnerable they are to further violence and discrimination these cards and pieces of paper highlight the kind of problems that the rangers have had for decades in relation to their legal status inside myanmar and they also highlight potential difficulties with respect to their identification if indeed this repatriation plan goes forward this is a citizenship card and it was made available to all ethnic groups including the ranger after independence now in one thousand nine hundred two citizenship was withdrawn for the rich. it was
12:15 pm
a few years later that they were issued with this the so-called white card now the word ranger has disappeared from it instead there is written. and the religion islam in twenty fifteen they had to hand these over and they were issued with this receipt now there is no mention of any ethnicity nationality or religion on this receipt it was a few months later that they were issued with these with a similar scant amount of information and the vast majority of ranger refused to ever pick these up from the government bangladeshis already registered hundreds of thousands of refugees living in the camps i pull some mohamad was his new id card but the information on it is far from clear for some of that first they gave us a card which said ranger registration card now they gave us a card which says me and my national registration card where the bangladeshi
12:16 pm
government gave us this card and we don't know based on information provided by bangladesh beyond masses it will accept the remainder only after it verifies the information. dylan muhammad walked to the border and look at their home which is now occupied by the myanmar military abdul says he just wants citizenship and security in the country he his family and hundreds of thousands like them believe they are from. al-jazeera is bizarre bangladesh still ahead on al-jazeera. in an african leaders pledged to do more to help thousands of migrants stranded in libya amid living conditions already dire syrians face a new threat for survival as when.
12:17 pm

12:18 pm
saturday the storms are still looking pretty active sydney may pick up some showers across western parts of australia so a woman in perth with highs of thirty degrees as far as news even is concerned still high on to area of high pressure fine through friday so we head into saturday the maybe some rain developing in the south later on. a year on from the election which shook washington both the republican and democratic parties are struggling to adjust to a polarized in october it really is an identity crisis you just run against drugs or do you literally stake out a set of positions that offer us a clear alternative not just a truck but to the politics that gave you the truck faultlines examines the shifting sands of american politics life of the party this time on al jazeera.
12:19 pm
welcome back these are the top stories right now on al-jazeera the u.s. is calling for more sanctions and the complete isolation of north korea united nations security council an emergency meeting following pyongyang's missile test on tuesday or korea says to watch proves it has the capability to hit the u.s. mainland u.s. president donald trump has attacked british prime minister theresa may for condemning has anti islam read tweets truck shared three anti muslim videos from a far right british group with his more than forty million followers there the roman catholic church has just arrived in bangladesh after four days and neighboring man mark pope francis is expected to discuss the right hand to refugee
12:20 pm
crisis and he's been criticized for not publicly mentioning the issue while in me and maher. some of the world's major oil producers are set to agree on extending a deal to cut production until the end of two thousand and eighteen organization of petroleum exporting countries opec is holding talks in vienna on ways to boost oil prices the current deal due to expire in march reduces output by and or nearly two million barrels per day talk to paul brennan now who is and pianist so paul these talks of an extension of how smoothly expected to go if at all smoothly. smoothly rise i can tell you there's a massive queue of media over to my left hand side the rights of screen waiting to be let into the opening ceremony of the opening statements of this so that's looking at the clock twenty minutes already late so from an organizational point of view it's not going that smoothly yet that said the indications are that the
12:21 pm
negotiations between the opec members the opec nations and the non opec parties to these these talks this conference have broadly agreed that there will be a nine month. to the production cuts which were introduced earlier this year now that there was pressure from russia for example about the extent about the amount of time that those cuts should be imposed russia can live with a lower oil price than some of the middle eastern countries for example and russia of course is concerned about the resurgence of the united states or oil industry if the price stays tight but it seems that russia has been able to fall into line with its middle east and opec partners and as a result we're not expecting a huge surprise out of this meeting here today although the timing of it as i say from the delays that we're having is still up in the air so you're saying no surprises but the crisis obviously is the elephant in the room i would assume how
12:22 pm
might that factor into this summit. oh it certainly factors into the complex negotiations the complex consultations which take place on a routine basis your fourteen members of opec including such regional rivals as iran saudi arabia oman you've got qatar of course you've got the united arab emirates now of course with the g.c.c. blockade all of at the moment it makes the pre meeting consultations extremely difficult boylen energy ministers simply cannot meet openly because diplomatic ties have been cut off and it's difficult to send messages for example via intermediaries such as kuwait and have the same degree of efficiency of consultations as you would have had in previous years that said you know opec has weathered worse than this you know that opec survived the iran iraq war it survived iraq's invasion of kuwait so it puts huge strain on the smooth running of the
12:23 pm
meetings in the conference the bigger picture is that the common ground that they have is that the price of oil in the necessity to keep the market balanced. life for us in vienna paul thank you letters and libya have agreed in the emergency repatriation of refugees and migrants facing abuse and detention camps have a grade to that scandal as a hot topic at a summit of african union leaders the announcement by french president. ever a video apparently showing migrants being sold as slaves and libya. center approaches in syria and then in the north of the country worry about how they will survive there's a lack of fuel and people living in the area say they have already used most of the trees around them for fire way. of aid of course in gaza on the turkey syria border . it's getting cold in syria and it's the time of the year to scavenge for
12:24 pm
things to burn they need it more inventive because in addition to cooking the family will need to stay warm he tells us we came from home city because of the government we didn't go to. i send my boy to collect things to. face another winter without any food or diesel. diesel is expensive and ensure supply because the northern countryside of homs has been under siege for years. is that. the reason behind the high prices is a blockade we live under even then the diesel we get from the regime areas is not suitable for cars. people are forced to look for alternatives. you had to become a tree law that he fills all kinds of fees in his own and nearby villages the so yes this year he says he has got sixty tons of trees to be burnt this fire but. the cost to the environment she is
12:25 pm
a small price to pay for survival. prices make us cut the trees down it used to cost less than two cents a kilo now it's over twenty cents. but keep it alternatives to diesel means trees in these villages are fast disappearing. there aren't enough trees left we have been besieged for the last five years when the firewood ends will have just our clothes and god help some residents of the whole are trying to find alternatives to cutting trees. growing them to earn a meager living. back in allows home this environment whatever they can get their hands on to cook with and to cook on and. i can't go to school i used to like winter but there was no money to buy firewood or diesel and other children hope winter will be easier on them this year. is just one of many
12:26 pm
businesses in syria where tens of thousands of people are struggling to survive this will be their seventh winter since the two thousand and eleven uprising and many syrians say that the outside world does nothing to ease their suffering. increase in the past three months a straining emergency facilities can't spell to host a few thousand people or three times that number the conditions are so dire that some refugees are hurting themselves in the hopes of moved from that camp. that's the home of forts. in a busy cafe outside the main refugee camp on lesbos island taliep tell stories of self harm and abuse. have said i know of some people who cut themselves so that doctors can see that and let them go.
12:27 pm
people have been here for more than a year that tired and psychologically and well they will hurt themselves in any way just so they can leave this island inside the camp more than six thousand people share facilities designed for just a third of that number in conditions that appear to be in breach of their human rights many have severe medical problems a man with metal bolts in his knees. a husband whose wife is about to give birth. the letter says this gentleman has had two recent hospital admissions in mytilene with chest pain it sounds like he has significant coronary artery disease. but there is no easy ticket out of this place or awful as boss island the asylum process could take year or more it's you and therefore greek government policy now to stem the tide of refugees into europe we've heard stories about people getting themselves making themselves sick have you heard these stories can you confirm that
12:28 pm
they're so it's true they do these things they quite common all the time we hear it those sorts of injuries and that they have various problems with their health but it's something we've become used to and i've been here for years at this camp and for all the years i've been here this is been going on. the words there of the camps chief doctor and surprised he says at the lengths people are prepared to go to because of the conditions here add to that that senior members of the european commission have visited this camp and nothing changed even the greek health minister has visited this camp and nothing changed the medical charity doctors without borders concentrates on mental health and sexual violence inside the camp it is horrendous and it isn't acceptable so for me the question will be. what is pushing people to take this measures this extreme measures. and what do you think that is the policy it is that you probably since today they're pushing people to
12:29 pm
