tv NEWS LIVE - 30 Al Jazeera November 30, 2017 5:00pm-5:34pm +03
among the guests who think she is being in love with me for a change this return of the president at this time on al-jazeera. i remember the first time i walked into the newsroom and it felt like being in the general assembly of the united nations was it was so many nationalities. just that we all come to different places but it's one that gives us that gives us the ability to identify with. the other side of the world but we can understand what it's like to have a different perspective and i think that is a strength for al-jazeera. retreating from britain first was the wrong thing to do with having a return don't trump threatening the relationship between the united kingdom and
the us. well again i'm come out santamaria this is the world news from al-jazeera a call for action as pope francis urges the international community to take decisive measures to resolve the range of refugee crisis. north korea shows off its latest political missile launches international calls for tighter sanctions grow louder. and it's safe to say good by the way is clear for tourists to leave an indonesian island threatened by a volcano. so we're going to begin with these new tensions between the u.s. and the u.k. the british prime minister to resign i says she is fully focused on tackling extremism that is in response to the tweet from donald trump telling her to focus
on quote destructive radical islamic terrorism all this back and forth began when trees and i can dems don't transfer his anti islam retorts and then just a few minutes ago we iterated heard distain for the transactions. but the fact that we work together does not mean that we're afraid to say when we think united states is wrong and to be very clear with them and i'm very clear that retreating from britain first was the wrong thing to do. british muslims are peaceful. people who have themselves been the subject victims of acts of terror by the far right there are those who conduct acts of terror in the name of islam but it is not in the name of islam and as prime minister i am very clear about the priority that i give to dealing with the challenge of the threat of terrorism and that's the dealing with the threat of terrorism and extremism from whatever source comes down
to be philipson london with more on this when you can hear her for us the frustration and to resume a voice cancer she's in amman jordan she wants to talk about relationships with middle east countries retreat controversy won't leave her alone. exactly she's desperately trying to forge a new role for britain in a post box it well she's dealing with very diplomatic very delicate diplomatic issues in the middle east she's been in iraq she's been in saudi arabia but this issue of donald trump is overshadowing her visit the line from the british government is this that the special relationship between these two countries dates back many decades it is a diplomatic military cultural intellectual relationship that is much deeper and much more significant than the relationship between a current incumbent of the white house if you like and speaking
a short time ago here in the house of commons. she's the home secretary argued that when she sees for example how britain and the united states share intelligence she is aware of just how important those ties are how many lives are saved but at the same time britain is not afraid to call the united states out if necessary. i think. that we have to be very. clear president donald trump was wrong to retreat videos posted by the far reaching first we have said so clearly in this house and the prime minister has said so clearly online we will continue to speak freely and frankly when it takes place barnaby there is the prospect of a visit by donald trump to the u.k. at some point to resume a might offer a while ago what's your thoughts on whether about still stands or not.
well the reason i was asked about that in amman just a few moments ago as the government has been asked here in london again today and the official line is this the invitation was extended it has been accepted there for defacto the visit is still on in theory in practice come out i can't see it happening any time soon there has been such an extraordinary chorus of condemnation and anger not just from the opposition labor party not just from civil society not just from muslim and indeed anglican leaders here in the united kingdom but from within the governing conservative party that the prospect of that visit is extremely awkward and embarrassing for to reason may remember a state visit full bells and whistles carriage down the mall dragging the queen into it all the rest of it one hesitates to make assumptions about what's going through the reason why is mine but i think it's reasonable to speculate that she is
regretting having made that invitation back in january all right barnaby phillips in london thank you prime minister may also expressed her concerns in the news conference in amman about the crisis in yemen caused by the sound of the blockade. today almost a third of yemen's entire population is at risk of deep food insecurity this dire situation must and the u.k. will work with our partners to do everything possible to achieve this. we will continue as the third largest humanitarian donor to the crisis in yemen increasing our contribution to one hundred fifty five million pounds to twenty seventeen eighteen and pressing the whole international community to do more but i'm also a plan that the flow of commercial supplies on which the country depends must be if we are to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe i mean my medical sources say at least ten people have been killed in fighting in yemen's capital sana'a forces loyal to the former
president ali abdullah saleh fought with the hope the rebels and the mosque asylum loyalists accuse the hoodies of committing a coup groups have a loose alliance now the head of the roman catholic church has called on the international community to take what he calls decisive measures to resolve the refugee crisis in bangladesh and me and now but once again he did not use the word . pope francis now in bangladesh where more than six hundred thousand re-injure of fled after a military crackdown began in august in me and on the pontiff was criticized for not publicly mentioning a range of crisis during the me and my leg of his trip voided the word in an address in bangladesh's capital dhaka instead speaking of quote the refugees from rakhine state in which you feel it is imperative that the international community take decisive measures to address this grave crisis we need to work to resolve the political problems that is causing these people to suffer and also to offer immediate material assistance to bangladesh to respond to those who urgently need

a sick puppy for the ninth time this year the united nations security council discussed yet another crisis centered on north korea this test is another confirmation that the north korean threat has changed dramatically in a few months both in scope and scale the threat us shifted from being regional to global. and from the u.s. ambassador a direct plea to china to exert greater economic pressure on its ally and neighbor we need china to do more president tropp 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 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 freeze for freeze scenario in which north korea would slow its missile program if
the u.s. and south korea lowered their military posture on the peninsula this position supported by russia. we proposed a 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 has been repeatedly and vehemently ruled out by the u.s. another round of joint exercises between the u.s. and south korean military forces are due to start here next week north korea has said the drills are a rehearsal for war at the united nations america's ambassador has said the u.s. doesn't seek war but if it does start north korea's leaders would be in her words utterly destroyed kathy novak al jazeera. pakistan's government is facing criticism
for the way it handled protests against a minister who was accused of blasphemy five people were killed in those demonstrations that ended with the resignation of the minister a government says agreeing to the protesters demands was the only way to prevent more violence zain bus rafi with the support from the horn. it's been a tough year for pakistan muslim league news the country's ruling party. was removed as prime minister over corruption allegations and now the government is accused of mishandling a sit in in islamabad by religious hardliners that ended only when the government gave into their demands it's the kind of appeasement their opponents say that means people and has lost the moral authority to rule but at a party office in lahore it's business as usual mohamed pervaiz malek has represented his constituency for nearly two decades he's also the minister for commerce and textile when asked about whether his government should step aside he said breaking people down doesn't help build the country up but it is really really
unfair willing and creating weiland for these kind of things that were definitely damage them or you can countries an orderly and measured performance so i don't think we should run word this kind of thing and negotiations and talking to each other is the best course. he also said while islamic groups are great at orchestrating large rallies when it comes to the business of governing voters pick established parties that know how to get things done. he points to projects like this one a vocational training center for women completed in two thousand and fifteen it offers a variety of free and subsidized professional courses all designed to help women enter the workforce. studies skills are also very important for girls even if you have ten masters degrees you can't guarantee you'll get a job but if you have this two year diploma you can be confident of finding work while religious parties focus on the spiritual side of life is established its
reputation on brick and mortar projects like these that help improve people's daily lives and that's what ruling party leaders say will keep them popular at the polling. three hospitals roads bridges community centers large infrastructure projects are what many voters think of when they think of pm eleven. but a series of political challenges has taken a toll on the party's public image. i think this government is a total flop. all my life i've voted for the muslim league but no washer reef is in and out of court. can we vote for a guy like me. not everyone feels the same way they could do whatever when they don't. look during the previous administration and wash melton's apart to build the motorway between islamabad and lahore during this administration people five power plants and he started a motorway between lahore and karachi so god willing in the twenty eighteen
