12:02 pm
and illegal migration from africa to europe and that was the focus of the summit is drawing to a close the city of abidjan in ivory coast more than eighty african and european leaders were in attendance at the two day meeting tackling issues such as high youth unemployment another pressing issue as applied of refugees and migrants stuck in libya a recent t.v. report showed people being sold as slaves there in his address to the summit french president a man in mock royal court for international organizations to help refugees and migrants get out of libya. this is human trafficking carried out by africans against africans and the situation must stop but the african union the european union and the united nations have decided this evening is to act decisively first and foremost with extreme urgency to evacuate from libya all those who can and want to be evacuated and help them to return to their country of origin. we will stand
12:03 pm
in solidarity with others and this emergency operation which will be conducted in the coming days and weeks. only portions. is covering that summit in the city of abidjan in the ivory coast and he joins me. now you know like the issue of slave trade in refugees in libya has caused a huge amount of concern and a part of the cause for urgent action there what was said. there was an emergency meeting by the leaders on the topic called for by french president in mind who read my column last night and it did you build some results according at least the french the plan is now to evacuate at least some of the migrants that are in these terrible camps in libya of course there are two problems with this first of all. not all the camps will grant access to whoever wants to go there because the situation in libya is complicated and although the official government
12:04 pm
has said we will help you do that some of those camps are not on the territory of the official government and then who is actually going to do that in one room i call talked about military personnel the germans denied that what they agreed on apparently though is to send those migrants into camps in the niger and child and to process their asylum requests going forward there so you can tell it's still very sketchy plan and lot of those details are still lacking and the fun it is wrapping up now max i mean what kind of proposals what discussed ahead africa's a young vibrant population. it looks like there won't be a whole lot of concrete things in the conclusions it's usually about money and the e.u. wants to try to help with what some of them at least call a marshall plan to generate about forty billion euros within the next used it that would involve also the private sector is stepping in which is not
12:05 pm
a given at the moment and then it also involves good governance and of course a battling fighting corruption in africa something that the german chancellor stressed very much and so you need a lot of cooperation on both sides they will probably say that they're determined to do that but any concrete proposals or commitments so far we haven't seen any in the draft proposals that we see now max elfman abi jenna of the coast thank you very much for that. the u.s. is one north korea's leaders that they will be utterly destroyed should tensions over the country's weapons program break out into war north korean state media claims this photo shows pyongyang's latest missile test launch two days ago observers say it is not goriest most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile to date and that this rocket can hit any city in the u.s. including washington d.c. the trumpet administration is also threaten new sanctions and press china to cut
12:06 pm
off its oil supply to north korea. america's ambassador to the united nations nikki haley had these stern words for the north korean regime the dictator of north korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war not farther from it we have never sought war with north korea and still today we do not seek it if war does come it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday and if war comes make no mistake the north korean regime will be utterly destroyed. joining me now is jason strother he's govern the story for us from the south korean capital seoul so strong winds from the u.s. ambassador there are in the united nations is so wide that these kind of threats could be counter petard productive. it's been a concern of south korea's president moon j.n.
12:07 pm
ever since he took office back in may and just today his unification minister this is the official who is in charge of relations with north korea expressed concern that upcoming joint military exercises with the united states that are scheduled to take place around the time of the winter olympics in south korea could further cause tensions to rise so certainly the war of words is something that south korea feels that it's stuck in between and just been done trump is once again called on china to do or it can to isolate north korea but the relationship between the two allies is very close isn't it it's always been described as close as lips and teeth of course that came back from when china pretty much rescued north korea during the korean war from the advancing american army relations aren't quite as close as they used to be of course china is north korea's biggest benefactor much
12:08 pm
of its oil supplies come from china but that doesn't mean that beijing is ready to turn off the tap so to speak. final korea has been completely. by sanctions as the deal the outrage why. right well you know they feed into north korea's world view actually i mean any resolution or sanctions at the u.n. security council just reinforces young's. ideology that it is alone in the world that hostile enemy nations are out to get it in particular the united states and it only causes the north korean regime to. make more inroads with its own people it gives the regime legitimacy to have sanctions placed on it so what was said at the u.n. security council does not mean that it will bring north korea back to any
12:09 pm
negotiating table and to its latest myside don't want to move to be the most advanced so far what all the options from washington to deal with what many of you as a major security threat and north korea's always been described as the land of bad options and this is no exception the u.s. doesn't have a lot of options right now of course there always is this factor of america launching a preemptive military strike something that the trump administration alludes to invade terms but that certainly is something that south korea does not want to see president moon has said that if the u.s. were to consider preemptive action it would have to go through seoul first. and it is certainly something that has resonated with the south korean people normally south koreans are fairly apathetic to what happens with north korea whatever north korea says or launches a missile but ever since president trump came to power there have been many more
12:10 pm
conversations here about what's going to happen if if trump were to act jason strother so thank you very much for that. a u.s. president dollar trams try to have visits threatening to talk radio the relationship with one of the us is closest allies the u.k. it started on wednesday when trump shared three anti islam videos posted by the leader of the u.k.'s far right extremist group britain first one claims to show muslims pushing a boy off a roof another sensibly shows a muslim man destroying a statue of the virgin mary and a third allegedly shows a muslim migrant beating up a dutch boy on crutches the dutch embassy in the us has already debunked the last video as fake news treating facts do matter the perpetrator of the violent act in this video was born and raised in the netherlands he received and completed his
12:11 pm
sentence under dutch law what's more dutch media is reporting the attacker is not even a muslim but it didn't end there the spokesman of british prime minister to resume publicly criticize the u.s. president saying british people overwhelmingly reject the prejudice of the far right it's wrong for the president to have done this trump been while a medically fired back treating don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we are doing just fine now for more on this and what this means i'm joined by our london correspond big mosque welcome to get a this is all quite unprecedented what has been the reaction there to president trump's direct reach a prime minister to resign me telling her to basically mind her own business.
12:12 pm
well it's a huge story here in the u.k. and what president trump has been doing is alienating many people who would normally babys be seen as allies people who are more conservative maybe more leaning towards republicans for example the t.v. personality piers morgan has a huge following on twitter was calling on president has been calling on president trump to undo his tweeds also we've had. who is a prominent government minister and he's been very outspoken he said that president trump has endorsed the view of a violent going to zation that hates people like him saudi job it is a is a muslim and he refuses to let it go and say nothing so it's a huge reaction here in the u.k. people are taking it seriously also the house of commons has tabled an urgent debate on it so this will go on at least throughout the day. is of course a big no one for a spontaneous an unorthodox with but how much of
12:13 pm
a setback would this be in what was or was viewed as a very special relationship especially with briggs had looming. well of course with bricks and looming one of the objectives of the u.k. government is to have an even more special relationship to the u.s. but of course behind the scenes they would be realizing that this is not going to be plain sailing however they will try and go ahead with this reason me has been quick for example to russia and visit president trump just after his election much more quick than for example angela merkel and other leaders who have been much more cautious however the british government does need to somehow not lose touch with the u.s. and diplomats here in the u.k. for example the retired diplomat sara jeremy greenstock they have been saying well the special relationship doesn't only refer to president trump it refers to the history of the two countries and refers to the shared values and also to the
12:14 pm
american people so they are basically trying to well see how much and how close they can get because of the brics said they will have to somehow stay close to the united states and look at the timing of this dispute is bad it comes as terrorism it is in the middle east where she is trying to win business well yes to reason may is in the middle east she's been in iraq she's also been visiting british troops there so it's not just about business that at least were the words she would say and so far she has been quiet and we've heard this statement on twitter yesterday but nothing so far and it remains to be seen if she's going to try and do something more later today. begin last in london thank you very much. december is upon us and that means the christmas season in new york stock and the city officials gathered to make it official with the man flipping the
12:15 pm
