hello i'm adrian for they get this is the news out live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes agreements to cut the flow of migrants from africa to europe but questions remain about how it will be enforced. in geneva the u.n. try as yet again to end syria's civil war. donald trump lashes out at his political enemies but also criticizes the leader of america's closest ally. at a call for action pope francis urges the international community to take decisive measures to resolve the hinge a refugee crisis. libya has agreed to the emergency evacuation of refugees and migrants facing abuse in its detention camps the plan's been drawn up at a joint african union summit in ivory coast it's not clear how the deal will be
5:02 am
enforced but migrants are expected to be sent back to their home countries tasha butler reports from abidjan. well the fame of this summit was huge but there is no doubt the from the outset it was dominated by the issue of the refugee slave trade in libya and by migration we heard from the host of the summit the president of the ivory coast in the beginning who said that everyone had a collective responsibility to do something when at the end of the summit what leaders decided is that they would try and repatch reate those migrants and refugees that are trapped in libya that they had also launched a task force to try and crack down on people smuggling and we spoke to many people here who said that that is just a case of firefighting and what is really needed is a long term strategy to deal with migration. african and european union leaders condemned the refugee slave trade in libya in their final statement they promised a task force to tackle traffickers and urgently repatch rate anyone who's trapped.
5:03 am
there are women and children living in inhuman conditions we have agreed along with the e.u. and the un to set up a task force for repatriating at least three thousand eight hundred people. leaders say there are more than forty refugee camps in libya where people are bought and sold by those with little respect for human life well the leaders here have committed to helping refugees in libya there were very few details as to exactly how and when they will repair trade them and they were also very frank about the new task force they say they'll put in place to combat people smuggling. that there was also no mention of the french president's remarks to reporters that military action against traffickers is a possibility the u.n. secretary general told summit leaders on wednesday that new ideas a needed to deal with migration including more legal ways to enter europe is that
5:04 am
something that you discussed and something which you wouldn't visit each you have to. we have to stop. illegal migration this is our. obligation youth workers say until young people have real opportunities little change we want african leaders. say we are going to support. one. and here are the resources that we put in place a practical things to do. in the declaration that we're going to. be going to. this no doubt that ending the slave trade is an urgent priority but unless last thing solutions are found to persuade people to stop leaving home in the first place human rights abuses will continue to affect africa's most fun. this
5:05 am
was the first summit between these two organizations there were more than eighty leaders here for the african and european union's and what they said was that this is really an opportunity for a new era in relations one that was equal in a sense it was an attempt to try to redress the balance of the past but one more many experts have told us is that for as long as the european union continues to pour aid money into africa it is going to be very difficult to do that russia is accusing the u.s. of doing everything it can to provoke north korea on wednesday the u.s. warned pyongyang that it will be utterly destroyed if war breaks out earlier this week north korea tested its latest intercontinental ballistic missile but russia says cutting diplomatic and trade ties isn't the answer to the standoff. one gets the impression that everything has been done on purpose to make snap and
5:06 am
carry out further inadvisable actions it is regrettable the americans should explain to us what they're after despite that the white house says the u.s. has only one goal in dealing with the growing nuclear threat from north korea this is mission ration is focused on one big thing when it comes to north korea and that's. the korean peninsula that's our number one priority that's what we're focused on anything beyond that is not the priority at this point tim shorrock is an investigative journalist in north korea analyst he joins us now live from washington d.c. tim good to have you with us looking at the bigger picture here do you think we have a fundamentally unsolvable problem when it comes to nuclear development and the nuclear ambitions of north korea i mean they show absolutely no sign despite international pressure of giving up their right their nuclear program. no it's
5:07 am
not unsolvable at all it's this is completely solvable this is an issue between north korea and the united states they've made it very clear that their weapons are aimed at the united states they want to build a deterrent force to protect themselves from threats like made today by the u.n. ambassador nikki haley who once again repeated trump's statement that they will totally destroy a north korea if north korea doesn't go along north korea's been saying for years they want the united states to end its hostile policy and they use that hostile policy to justify building their nuclear weapons and also building their own their missiles that they have obviously become very capable at i think you've got to get those two sides together in tackle the issues united states needs to address north korea security concerns in viceversa within the last. south korea's unification minister has said that there's a high possibility north korea will not engage in further provocations for some
5:08 am
time now what do you make of that. it's very possible you know if you read the north korean statements after the missile test the other day they said they have completed their nuclear program they've become a nuclear power and that's the signal i think that they're ready to stop the testing and begin to talk and that's what they've been telling visiting americans and discussions they've had informally with former u.s. officials and former u.s. intelligence officers that they want to build a nuclear arsenal they don't want to build a huge arsenal but they want to have a deterrent force against the united states and they apparently they believe that they might have that now and they might be ready to stop their actual testing and begin to talk although you know some people doubt that they may you know every country that builds missiles needs to keep testing them but they may stop for a while i think that's very that's very clear being able to fire
5:09 am
a rocket at the u.s. is one thing being able to fire a nuclear warhead as far as the u.s. is is something completely different and how worried should people be both in the u.s. and i suppose in western europe of a missile can can can reach the west coast of the of the the u.s. it could reach western europe to. that's right i mean the missile they fired the other day could conceivably hit anywhere in the world and it could definitely hit the united states could hit the east coast where i am in washington d.c. but i think as i said before that they've been saying that these nuclear weapons are aimed as a deterrent against the united states i don't think people around the world in other countries necessarily have to worry and i don't even think people in america need to be worried about being nuked by the north koreans because they as you say they don't know have the ability yet to put a nuclear weapon on one of these i.c.b.m. zend shoot it all the way to the united states but they have enormous amount of
5:10 am
conventional weapons and if there was a war you know nikki haley says you know the united states would totally destroy a north korea well a war might totally destroy south korea as well you know and it could be a conventional war that could easily move to a nuclear war and that's why i think it's very very important for the united states to do it to do its utmost to try to reach an agreement that would that would settle this crisis author and journalist tim shorrock that in washington d.c. tim great to talk to you many thanks indeed for being with us thank you the saudi led coalition says that it's intercepted another ballistic missile fired by who's the rebels in yemen it was reportedly shot down near the southwestern saudi city of qom a small shapes the other who thiis said that they'd hit a military target it's the second missile fired from yemen in a month the first was destroyed near riyadh's international airport on the event before the coalition has been facing the who these in yemen since twenty fifteen

5:12 am
would work but we're having what we call. me that means the two sides in separate but adjacent rooms with mr de mistura quite literally the go between i've been shuttling with make a link between the two rooms which basically were five meters away while we were actually reading in this god thing with both issues which we got very important it is though far from a breakthrough there are still discussing the way this round of talks will be conducted the situation is very much as we've seen many times in many rounds of these talks no discernible sign of progress but inside syria the people continue to suffer. the un has revealed that last month four hundred thousand people were displaced from their homes in syria that's the highest number of people on the move for eighteen months getting food and medicine to those in need may soon get even

5:17 am
whether his predecessor barack obama was born in the united states all this strength sparks a new diplomatic row this time with the u.k.'s prime minister's reason may once again mayors condemned trump for sharing anti muslim videos with his forty six million twitter followers want to be phillips reports from london. on a tour of the middle east forging a post breck's it role for britain in the world this is not what the prime minister wanted to be talking about the fact that we work together does not mean that we're afraid to say when we think the united states got it wrong and to be very clear with them and i'm very clear that retreating from britain first was the wrong thing to do. back home in london the government argues that britain's ties with america military cultural diplomatic are what make the special relationship and this will endure long after the current president has gone the prime minister will always
5:18 am
have regular calls with the president and she has been explicit in criticizing this tweet and i know that she will always make sure that she calls it out where she sees it and that is what she's done here. but a tweet from another minister who is a muslim made it clear the president had hit a raw nerve donald trump has ups. a lot of people here in westminster in fearing he still invited to london on a state visit that would involve the queen in practice it's very hard to see that visit happening any time soon the president has provided a huge probably steve bruce to a fringe far right movement britain first which has never come remotely close to success in any form of election here in the u.k. . britain first wants to end immigration and ban is lime in the u.k. anti fascist groups believe it has about one thousand members its deputy leader franson

5:20 am
just the opposite what he's done is elevate the conversation to talk about a real issue in a real threat that's extreme violence and extreme terrorism something that we know to be very real and something the president feels strongly about talking about and bringing up and making sure is an issue every single day that we're looking at the best ways to protect americans so no apologies from the white house even as the president's actions continue to be questioned along with whether or not he is mentally fit to remain in office as a result of what many see as at minimum poor decision making not only are members of the president's own republican party questioning the president's actions and how this has harm not only international relationships but the president's own policy goals to some democratic members of congress who say that the president's actions equate nothing more than hate and are calling for his impeachment as early as next week on the floor of the house of representatives the u.s. state department has denied reports of the white house is planning to replace

5:22 am
do as does every political appointee and cabinet member secretary tellers and enjoys this job he has a lot of work to do the question also came up whether secretary rex tillerson would be believed when he meets with foreign ministers at a number of european capitals next week the message from the state department as long as the secretary is representing the president and is serving at his pleasure he will be advancing and speaking for the u.s. when it comes to his foreign policy. team is navy says that it's ended its for the crew of a missing submarine contact with the day san juan was lost on nov thirteenth the crude message to say that that been an electrical failure to see water had got into a battery aircraft and ships from eighteen countries have been looking for the submarine forty four people on board. the ministry of defense and the argentine armed force in applying the international conventions

5:34 am
beyond it was president obama who began a one trillion dollar modernization of the u.s. is nuclear arsenal making its nuclear bombs smarter its delivery systems more accurate the fear among disarmament experts is improved accuracy will make the use of nuclear weapons more likely u.s. presidents will feel they can finally huge a nuclear strike with precision. even more capable than the current version and when you pair this with what other countries are doing to upgrade and modernize their forces and i think right now the world is facing i renewed nuclear arms race the u.s. is a nuclear deterrent is based on what's called the triad missiles can be launched from land sea and air to make it difficult for an enemy to destroy the arsenal in a first strike in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven the u.s.

5:42 am
we're more inclusive they may be disappointed the cabin has some soldiers and members from the military it has a lot of the old guard it doesn't have anyone from the opposition so some people who hope that prison and go would be a different kind of leader from a may be disappointed it could indicate that maybe things may not change on the ground it's more of the same those who are cautiously optimistic hope that the president knows what he's doing he is a businessman they hope that he's assembled the right team to resuscitate the ailing economy but there are some people we've spoken to over the past few days who have been very skeptical of prison and are they saying he's part of the old system he's been in government is one hundred eighty he's been a close ally of guy with a former president he's helped he helped keep power for thirty seven years if you've been asking really what is he going to do to make things change if he was
5:43 am
part of the old system he benefited from the old system time will tell what will play out in the next few days. you months but i think the initial response from people who hoped who hope that the new president will be more inclusive in his cabinet may be disappointment but that said they still some cautious optimism people waiting hoping for the new president has some kind of plan to resuscitate the ailing economy the u.s. senate has put off a vote on bill that would make sweeping changes to the country's tax code a similar plan passed the house a few weeks ago voted been expected on thursday but late in the day the senate republicans announced a postponement a sign that support for the measure has not yet guaranteed its most extensive tax reform effort in thirty years charles hughes is a policy analyst with the manhattan institute for policy research he says he's optimistic that
