>> announcer: this is al jazeera. hello. welcome to the al jazeera newshour live from our headquarters in doha. i'm martine dennis, and these are the top stories - north korea says it successfully tested a powerful hydrogen bomb. its southern neighbour, though, is not convinced homeless and freezing - the syrian refugees struggling to get by in the blistering weather of. >> every time i think about
5:01 am
those kids it gets me mad an emotional president obama reveals tighter measures regulating guns in the u.s. plus... >> i'm tarek baisley in spain where a new generation of echo hot air balloons are taking flight north korea says it's detonated a hydrogen box. the u.n. body which monitors nuclear testing described it as a grave test to peace, calling for an emergency meeting of the security council. doubts have been expressed over pyongyang's claimsism >> translation: well not give up a nuclear prime as long as the united states maintains its aggression. >> and do adrian brown, who is our correspondent in beijing.
5:02 am
seems to be expressing a certain irritation that his close ally decided to go to alone. has not informed him that they are about to take this action. >> yes, at the daily ministry briefing, the speaks woman in a sense issued a mild rebuke to north korea, saying that china did not want to korean pens -- peninsula to be nuclearized. china has reason for concern as the impact was filed in a chinese city. pictures on state tv show highways shaking, surveillance cameras shaking and people evacuated to schools. when it first happened people feared there was an earthquake and didn't realise it was a form of nuclear test.
5:03 am
yes, china expressed concern profoundly. you have to remember, you know, china is about the only friend that north korea has had. in the past it has done what it can to sustain and help the north korean people. but its patience, i'm sorry, has been well and truly tested this time. >> talk to us a little more about the significance of the timing of this nuclear test. well, we can speculate on why north korea carried out the test now. but on friday, january the 8th, it's kim jong un's birthday. it may be him having a celebration early. who knows. he said earlier this year, in december, that north korea possessed the technology to develop a hydrogen bomb. a lot of north korea's neighbours were skeptical about that. today he demonstrated that they
5:04 am
do have the capability. it will be weeks, months years before we find out if north korea did what it said it did. it carried out four tests since 2006. the one in 2006, we believed involved plutonium and also in 2009 we think plutonium was used. in 2013, north korea used geranium. again that has been independently verified and it may be time before we can verify whether or not hydrogen was used this time. certainly the south korean government and the united states government have been expressing their skepticism, and around the region today we have seen concerns expresseded the last time north korea did what it did. the south korean president said that they are assessing what their response should be to what happened. japan's prime minister shinzo abe said that what north korea had done threatened not just japan, but the asia pacific
5:05 am
region. >> all right. thank you very much indeed. let's have a look more at the rest of the international reaction to the text. the u.s. called by north korea to abide by international obligations. they say it will respond appropriately to all provocation. the u.n. security council is set to hold a meeting to talk about the test. if the test is concern muched. it would be a provocation and a breach. u.n. security council resolutions. north korea's neighbour had this to say. >> translation: as we all know north korea's provocation is a violation of resolutions and a challenges to our stability. united states, japan, china and officer will follow a superior officer's directions and
5:06 am
consider countermeasures. >> let's look at what a hydrogen bomb is. it is a powerful bomb. 2,000 times more disruptive than the bombs dropped on japan. >> unlike atomic bombs, a hydrogen bomb derides force from nuclear fusion. >> now, a blast from a hydrogen bomb can cause fire storms and white light that can induce blindness. >> we can talk to the china national association of international studies. affiliated to the ministry of foreign affairs, joivening us from budget -- joining us from beijing. >> what do you make from this show of force, show of defiance coming from pyongyang? >> well, i would say this doet onation. nuclear device, what is called a
5:07 am
hydrogen bomb is a major development in the korean peninsula with a negative impact on the korean peninsula and the nearby asian region as a whole. therefore i think the chinese government issued the condemnation of a nuclear testing and is urging all parties to exercise restraint in work together towards decriminalization and should be a goal for all in this part of the world. no one will benefits from having a nuclear box, testing or threatening to use a nuclear weapon on the korean peninsula. having a nuclear instrument is a dangerous develop and we urge for caution and move to democratisati
5:08 am
democratisation. this is the firm policy of the champion's government. and all the other countries, including the the united states, russia, should join hands with china to achieve this goal we'll see the show of unanimity. is this not an instance of china's declining influence over this rogue state, this peria state. there was a time when china perhaps would have brought more pressure to lawyer. >> on the one hand china and north korea have good relations. no one of a korean peninsula should develop and persist a nuke lee weapon. this is mandated for several resolutions. no one should disregard the integrity of the united nations
5:09 am
security council resolution, and all of us should work together to achieving denuclearization. china does not have the influence, but made the position well-known to all the parties concerned that china will not tall rate a situation where nuclear weapons will be expressed, developed or used on the korean peninsula. that is the situation. it is borderline of the foreign policy regarding this point. >> it must be being viewed with a certain amount of alarm, the claim that this is a hared gen bomb, rather than the atomic bomb that it is thought that nooe yes detonated -- north korea detonated and tested in the past. >> well, i would say the bottom line should be that no one, no regime on the korean peninsula
5:10 am
should develop, possess or use a nuclear device including the atomic or hydrogen bomb. and whether it is either of those is irrelevant for this one. what the united nations security council has decided is that there should be no nuclear weapons developed or deployed or used on the korean peninsula, and the d.p.r. government will serve itself and people better by becoming fully aware of obligations under the united nations security council resolutions. it is a pro prohibition against development of any kind of nuclear weapons on the korean peninsula. and i believe through our joint and relentless efforts the goal will be achieved otherwise peace and stability to the korean
5:11 am
peninsula will be lost, and disaster and loss will happen to those in the korean peninsula and beyond. >> thank you for joining us. we'll talk later about this incident, leading our news for a good few hours now. let's look at other new us. the president obama situation doesn't see bashar al-assad stepping down as president before 2017, according to a new report. information by the associated press newsagency shows how bashar al-assad is apparently unlikely to relinquish his position as president before march 2017. the report was prepared for u.s. officials dealing with strategies, and how to bring an end to the conflict in syria harsh winter weather hit syria's latakia refugee camp. the storm swept across the west of syria, forcing thousands to seek shelter. many refugees have been living in basic temporary aecom takes,
