just action does not only increase tension on the korean peninsula but gravely interchanges international peace and security and we strongly condemn north korea's reckless behavior when you go seoul has warned the situation could spiral out of control the united nations security council will hold an emergency meeting to discuss the situation. more on this from aden foster carter he's an honorary senior research fellow in sociology and modern korea leeds university in the united kingdom welcome to day w a president trump said on the twitter that additional major sanctions will be imposed on north korea is that what we need now no not really in my view i mean no doubt they are merited north korea has been breaking international law that lists all the nuclear tests for a decade now oh but we're piling on the sanctions the sticks are in place what we
6:10 pm
don't have is the carrots or any kind of a diplomatic process i do think that it will need to come to talks and china for sure is of that opinion so sanctions alone no not in the us so there is a meeting then an emergency meeting of the u.n. what options do they have. very little i mean this is really hold groundhog day aspect to this is that we seem to go through the same size motions over and over again and there is a certain impotence i mean the there will doubtless be a condom nature or a resolution the sanctions that president trump professed to presumably you know after all american ones i will have to see what comes up that but there is there is a sense of great. but also of impotence that we know so far absent a diplomatic track no one has found a way to stop north korea particularly under its latest leader kim jong un from
6:11 pm
forging ahead with this very dangerous weapons so a given that given that we go through this cycle time and time again missile recrimination then the next misato should we not just now say north korea is a nuclear weapon state and take it from there. in my view that is the reality. i think that that self apps it doesn't help to them i have them on the other hand i understand the reasons why many people will state that just don't want to there is supposed to be a known perforation treaty north korea did sign it of course there are other nuclear sort of known recognized states in the world like israel india pakistan all with much more powerful nuclear arsenals but they never pretended so to speak and never joined the n.p.t. in the first place most crypted and left so it is seen from a sort of you know kantian universalistic point of view it would be seen as a very great blow to the global anti-nuke the effort to recognize this but facts
6:12 pm
are facts and i don't think there's any going back so somehow this conundrum will have to be faced hidden foster carter thank you so much. now more than eighty african and european leaders are meeting in ivory coast for a two day summit to try and promote stability and create more jobs for africa's young and growing populations the european union is putting greater emphasis on its ties with the continent largely because of unprecedented levels of migration refugees and migrants in search of safety and a better life arrive from all over africa fleeing war persecution and hunger their journeys often take the first to libya and then from there across the mediterranean to europe well the one hundred thousand africans arrived on the e.u. shores this year alone the block is hoping to reach agreements with countries of origin to take back the people who actually make it to europe but are not granted asylum d.w. correspondent max hoffman is at the summit in ivory coast he told us about the difficulties european leaders claim they face when it comes to providing legal opportunities for people to come to europe. we've been hearing that for some time
6:13 pm
now by different leaders also by the german chancellor and by the head of the u. commission you who we talked to on monday he said we absolutely need that we need legal migration to europe but the thing is when you get into the nitty gritty details nobody wants to talk about contingency quota how many actually do you want to bring into europe are what you know what kind of conditions for them to come the germans like to talk about education for example having exchange programs giving african students the opportunity to come to europe get their education and then come back to africa but you know like i said the details are very sketchy. well it's often you're watching d.w. news still to come by using striving to increase its influence on foreign companies in china who will have the final say over doing business there. and if you think jumping out of a plane is breathtaking how about jumping into one in mid-air well that's exactly what a couple of wing suit flyers have done over the swiss alps possibly for the first
