5:04 pm
not as stringent as those proposed in an earlier draft u.s. resolution obtained by al jazeera the original draft included a total ban of sale of oil petroleum and gas to north korea that was changed to some restrictions on sales it also had included a total ban on hiring and paying workers from north korea a measure that would have mainly affected china the original version also called for a travel ban and as its freeze on the north korean leader kim jong un and freezing the finances of north korea's national airline choreo air the watered down version was a resolution china and russia could support sending a unified message from the international community the question now is what north korea will do next south korea's defense ministry says it's closely monitoring activity at the north's nuclear research center which is ready for another test at

any time the government here also says the north could be preparing for another missile launch kathy novak al-jazeera seoul. well it's course not true kimberly how could who is in washington for so kimberly how is the u.s. responding to all of this have certainly had reaction from the treasury secretary steve minutia and who has a strong message for north korea if it continues to as it has stated continue down this path towards nuclear in terms of the contributions of china with regard to the sanctions he says that he feels this is historic but if north korea disregards those u.n. sanctions steve says that fact he has already got a draft prepared for a new financial sanctions that would cut north korea completely off from access in any way to the u.s. financial system so certainly there is this feeling from the united states that further action will happen if north korea continues down this path but the past
5:06 pm
seems to be from the eyes of the united states one of trying to avoid war but instead work on diplomacy through exerting economic pressure what we're seeing as well is out on capitol hill the u.s. congress the house foreign affairs committee is set to begin meeting holding a hearing on north korea that is imminent the chair of that committee saying that it's the hope that they will be able to figure out how to respond to north korea's tast the most recent one which is being recognized as the most powerful to date the desire is to try and sort of fully flex the economic muscle of the united states in terms of what further measures can be taken against north korea in the hopes that they will begin to resume talks or i can really how can live for us there in washington. iraq's parliament has rejected this month's referendum on independence by the semi autonomous kurdish region campaigns are already underway for
5:07 pm
a vote on september twenty fifth in iraq as well as neighboring turkey and iran opposes the non-binding referendum imran khan has more from a beer like capital of the kurdistan region in iraq. where we're all expecting baghdad to say no to the referendum promise to hide a body has been very clear he says he doesn't want this referendum to go ahead so this vote was expected by the baghdad parliament however the kurds members of that palm and they walked out of that vote so they didn't take part in the vote allowing the arab m.p.'s to vote and say no to the referendum so me who is the speaker of the house says this means that the baghdad parliament must now really negotiate with the kurds for a settlement to this issue president masoud barzani of the k r g has been very clear he wants this to go ahead this referendum to go ahead it's an interesting constitutional dilemma now though because backed out of voted and kurds are part of
5:08 pm
that it means that if they don't reconvene their own kurdish problem and somewhere around the fifteenth to take a vote on whether the referendum should go ahead on the twenty fifth fixedly puts them in challenge with the decision made by the baghdad polman so now all eyes are on the kurdistan regional government they need to reconvene polman they need to say that they want the referendum to go ahead if they don't do that then they're in violation of that decision made by the iraqi parliament now let's see what happens there all political factions here in the iraqi kurdish region they say they don't want the referendum to go ahead there is this campaign is called no for now meaning that they want the referendum to go ahead they will vote for an independent kurdistan but not right now they say that the kurdish regional politics and all the political parties need to come together so. really what we're seeing is a decision that we're always going to expect the back to say no however we are now
5:09 pm
saying a political constitutional dilemma for the kurds they need to reconvene their parliament bangladesh's prime minister has promised food and shelter to hundreds of thousands of ranger refugees escaping violence in myanmar she made the comments while visiting a refugee camp and i want she will not tolerate violence against rangers she asked me and to take back those who've been forced from their homes fighting began in myanmar two weeks ago more than three hundred seventy thousand fled since then. all against any kind of insurgency activities and you know our stand is very clear . that we will not. do. this. so we have very strong stand against any kind of activities so i also request to you. that you should
5:10 pm
also publish the. women children. and. also. you know i want to know why. i think. we did attend a charity has more from cox is bizarre. prime minister. visited the official register during a refugee camp and. she gave a speech there were a lot of rowing a refuge is old as well as a nearly a rival she was very conciliatory and sympathetic to their plight she also the local population to be kind to them and not to have them in any way as this is far cry from out of stand and about a year ago she was very rigid on allowing any refugees coming from the me on my
5:11 pm
side she was highly critical of the me on my to read. she warned them that and she also promised that she would bring this up in the united nations and she is. diplomatic activity is she is also going to press red china and india was a regional power with a lot of economic interest in myanmar to influence me on my own to stop this crackdown however she stopped short of directly criticizing. saying that she is highly influenced by the military government she probably doesn't have much to do with this she also handed out a lot of. relief to some of the newly arrived. in the stage to take those gifts and we'll have to see what comes down the road but the situation in the ground is very fluid and dynamic a lot of refugees are still coming in that need aid and aid and emergency medicine otherwise the situation is going to get critical down the road again lots more still ahead more criticism of the saudi led coalition for its role in the war in
5:12 pm
yemen human rights watch accused of war crimes will have the saudi response. of the future and it's not petrol diesel. we're. welcome back as we look at the weather across eastern parts of china and taiwan you can see this massive cloud begins about now this is a typhoon time which is going to become the equivalent of a category four hurricane and that could happen soon after it runs by the northern tip of taiwan though it should say slice the north of taiwan and then just turn and run run along the coast of eastern china know it could cause some real problems here because there will be ferocious winds pushing in so storm surges and coastal inundation could be an issue further south we've got this tropical depression which
5:13 pm
given some really heavy rain across the philippines some serious flooding and loss of life that system moves away and it will eventually move towards hong hong kong and eventually across towards northern parts of vietnam which could cause some flooding there into south asia we're still a fair few sharp bit of messy situation across this region really with some heavy showers the northern end of the bear bengal some showers also down through more western parts of india and so mumbai could pick up one or two showers for the north all looking fine warm in delhi and likely to get a little bit warmer with time as well fine in karate too much of pakistan sunny here in the arabian peninsula of course sunny with highs of forty expected in doha elsewhere not quite so humid one respect a maximum of forty five degrees over in mecca. i just want to make sure all of our audience is on the same page where they're online and want to pollute to us citizens here and want polluted people of iraq by
5:14 pm
one and the same or if you join us on saturday i was never put a file been looked at differently because i'm darker than all the people that i'm a lot this is a dialogue tweet us with hash tag a.j. stream and one of your pitches might make a connection join the global conversation this time on al-jazeera. and again you're watching i just need a reminder of our top stories north korea has rejected a u.n. security council imposing new sanctions they restrict fuel supplies and block pyongyang's textile exports country envoy to the u.n. warned the u.s.
5:15 pm
will soon face what it calls the greatest pain it's ever experienced. the iraqi parliament has voted to reject the kurdistan regional governments push for in independence referendum neighboring turkey and iran are also opposed to the vote on september twenty fifth. she promised as promised to help arrange a muslims who fled to her country from myanmar last and i visited one of the camps housing refugees and said she would not tolerate any violence against them. other sally led coalition fighting in yemen is defending itself against accusations are war crimes human rights watch says recent airstrikes carried out by the coalition were unlawful and killed large numbers of children it says twenty six children among thirty nine civilians were killed in airstrikes since june they died when four family homes and a grocery shop were hit an air strike on ties in july killed fourteen members of the same family including nine children the rice body says these attacks show
5:16 pm
coalition promises have failed to protect yemen's children. the saudi government has been holding a press conference to respond to those and other allegations. associate professor in contemporary history of the middle east a cutter university joins me to talk more about that he's been listening to that press conference so what are the saudis been saying first of all on this yemen report actually the press conference was was looking at thirty one cases were coalition has been a criticized by different international bodies started with the united nation by criticized by. the previous victor of the. united nations and move on to other nations international organizations who basically it is not about specific the latest reports it's about thirty one cases and the spoke the spoke person was focusing on. the access into all of this by saying all the
5:17 pm
operation was done according to the international law and they have not targeted civilians and who tried to defend the case of saudi arabia on those cases and did they have what they have to say on the ongoing diplomatic dispute between cutter and other charges in actually the what i was watching or listening to was focusing on those thirty one cases and trying with details. going to try to cover them by more details it's very interesting to see this body because this body reduced to the media by saying this is a follow up team we're looking at all accidents and this is the first time we saw such a press conference usually we use the military spokesperson who used to come and comment on some of the nations but not necessarily with this details. so basically this is very interesting to see the coalition presenting all of the details to me it seems the latest international pressure from different organization has pressure
5:18 pm
the coalition to come up and give more details the. douglas how much of this information is convincing to the international bodies but they try to convince as much as they can you get the sense that saudi arabia and its partners in the region are kind of on the offensive with what's happening right now not just with the war in yemen but with the ongoing spat with qatar yes i mean as you see the. if you look at the yemen is actually one of the major issue in this dispute between qatar and the three blocks one the gulf states and egypt and i think. one of the main elements to see that fragmentation within the g.c.c. because there was different. assessment on the operation in yemen i think that is have you know have different experience in yemen different from the amount artes
5:19 pm
and different from so that i think how they look at it is contributing to this dispute and increasing us to the level of tension. good to get your thoughts on this very thanks very much. protests underway across france against president emanuel macross plans to change the french labor laws the turnout will be an indicator of how much opposition president faces from the country's influential workers' unions one of the main changes he wants is to make it easier for medium and small businesses to sack staff paul brennan has the latest from paris. labor reform was one of president manuel micron's key election promises and it is a promise he is determined to deliver on september seems to be a showdown months here in france a showdown between the police say the president's office and the unions who are out here on the streets in their tens of thousands. the policies the president wants to
5:20 pm
push through include for example the ability of companies with fewer than twenty staff to be able to negotiate paying conditions directly with those staff instead of having to go to a central union because if you boil it seems like common sense to many but the unions see it as an unacceptable infringement on diminuendo of that builds up in the heart for over so many years the other thing is that the sit today is one of the hardline unions and it is noticeable but two of the other large unions have chosen not to take part in this day of action so the support is split even among the unions that's the language that the president has used he said that those people who are opposed to his reforms are lazy or cynical or extremists that come on line which has a tag on eyes many people even moderate people opposed to his plans so it looks like it will be a hard fought campaign by the president to get these measures through. spain's
