hostile to a stream and one of their pitches might break connection to join the conversation. this time on al-jazeera. al-jazeera where ever you. do you might suspect that of the tensions over the gulf crisis boil over at a meeting of the arab league. hello and welcome i'm peter w. watching al jazeera live from our headquarters here in doha also coming up. as
leader decides to skip the u.n. general assembly as she faces fears condemnation over the handling of the crisis. north korea warns of a faster push to its nuclear program after new u.n. sanctions. plus smiling animated emoji is that really worth a thousand dollars as apple unveiled their latest i phone. our top story a meeting of the arab league in cairo descended into a shouting match with ministers from qatar and the four states blockading the gulf nation trading insults a cattery diplomat called doha's critics rabid dogs and accuse quote some regimes of waging a media campaign against it and that drew an angry response from egypt which rejected the accusations as baseless in so. it's the heated exchange then descended
into a squabble with the saudi arabian and cattery representatives telling each other to be quiet efforts to resolve the three month long dispute suffered a setback on saturday when saudi arabia suspended talks with cata that happened just after a phone call between the two leaders suggested there might be a breakthrough it is now one hundred days since four arab states cut trade and diplomatic ties with katter accusing it of sponsoring terrorism cateye strongly denies those charges well one of the fallouts in the gulf crisis has been education last for more than two hundred cattery students one students we spoke to was only a day away from finishing his degree when the gulf crisis kicked off carol i'm alone now. him used to fall solder is on a mission to save his education he studied for a bachelor's then a master's degree in law for more than six years at sharjah university in the us.
he had an interview booked for his disses for june sixth the day before the gulf crisis began when all countries were ordered out of bahrain egypt saudi arabia and the u.a.e. i don't have any. any country because you know. more than six years. or so should be. thinking about you know i think should be studying with any country. i can't get stipulates he needs from the u.a.e. to prove he's finished his studies he's unrolled it cash university in the hope that he'll still qualify however assessing these students without academic records is difficult the total number is so far more than thirty three students in the four countries. saudi arabia and the dilemma is the equivalency
to make the course that the student already finished and that one of these country equivalent to make it quicker than to their one of the university you must compare the topics the content katter's human rights committee says they've heard from thousands of students who say their education has been disrupted by the crisis at least seven hundred bahrain is a mirage isn't saudis have had to leave cattle university and they were ordered to return home by their governments at score that in baghdad it will be in the minds of the new janeiro nation that it's certainly been bored of that blockade regardless of which. country you are and this is something that it is not easily been going to be you know. when the political decision you know of those pocket country will change. diversity's have reopened after the summer holidays and just like last year will include students from all over the region and other parts of the worlds. students are registering here for the new academic year
a cattle university among them a students from the blockading countries who decide to stay on the register despite the restrictions and there are categories who've been kicked out of other regional institutions have had to come back home to die hard to continue their degrees. student such as grateful for the opportunity to secure an education despite the political arguments caroline malone al-jazeera. ok let's stay with us story join us live here on set to zero zero here middle east analyst here that's positive that everyone can build on. well i'm not quite sure if i got your question right. so could you repeat that these for anything good in the mix at the moment can move this forward in a positive direction if we're talking about yesterday's session at the head of bleak been i would say personally that i saw it as
a positive sign. i mean where everyone where everyone for the first time publicly revealed. everyone everybody who revealed their cards yesterday's during the rest of these sessions so i think of that as a positive sign how does that work because the language you know you're a rabid dog that doesn't sort of push one towards thinking that is a good thing well if you can you know from you know in a way you can look at it as a good sign as a positive sign i mean it's the first time everybody got together and talk openly talked openly about this thing but on the other hand we can look upon what happened yesterday as a negative sign in the sense of getting this crisis to. soulmate . but i don't believe we hit that impasse yes ok reached that then last year
if there is going to be one thing that they can take and build on what might it be and who needs to talk to who whilst paying lip service or acknowledging that they've got to get the language right because they might annoy the egyptians they might annoy the iranians well i guess one of the good the positive signs that we had yesterday is that for the first time. the the arab league was revealed to be that obsolete that incompetent i think it's high time now according to what we have seen yesterday that something seriously. should be done to to sort out this organization which has been controlled for a long time by certain group of countries live by the saudi the saudis and you know the other countries allied to saudi arabia and in the meantime the the absence the total absence of the political will of the other member states something seriously
has to be done to fix up this organization otherwise let's just forget about this organization altogether so this is one of the positive signs. if we talk directly about the the crisis that we have i think yesterday's have shown clearly that there is an urgent need to reach a settlement in we talk we're not talking about the solution because this crisis has a long history of of conflicts between the conflict in countries so this this long history needs more time to be worked out in to be sorted out but we need seriously some sane people to sit and find a settlement for this crisis otherwise i think it's going to hit the ceiling and i don't believe that even the b.b. the countries. involved in this crisis would like would come to light the results
the results are going to be very serious here thanks very much well we'll have much more on the first one hundred days of the gulf crisis later here on al-jazeera we've we're on a with a special edition of our news great program you can join the team at fifteen hours g.m.t. on wednesday right here on al-jazeera live from doha. and suci has canceled her plans to attend the un general assembly in new york later this month she has been widely criticized since violence against the range of muslims escalated in the northern states of recalling in late august. after visiting makeshift camps on tuesday the bangladeshi prime minister sheikh hasina promised she would speak about the crisis at that u.n. meeting a closed door u.n. security council discussion is also expected to focus in on the crisis let's take you live now to young gone and my colleague florence louise lawrence what else do we know about aung sun suu cheez decision not to go to the u.n.
general assembly. well initially when the spokesman in now made the announcement there was no reason given but then al-jazeera spoke to a foreign affairs ministry spokesman and he said she's remaining in the country because the president is abroad for medical treatment so she's staying behind largely to handle the situation in rakhine state now another government spokesman said or rather denied the suggestion that it was because she doesn't want to face criticism and she has been coming a lot of coming under fire a lot lately because of the not only because of the way her government is handling the situation in brookline state but because of her silence about the on the plight of the real hinge or don't forget her first public comments came nearly two weeks after fighting erupted in northern rakhine state and even then what what did she say she appealed for patience in letting her country deal with this problem saying it was a problem that dated back to pre-colonial times now and some have led to her defense
saying she's not fully in charge of what's happening in the country and also not of the military operation the military is still in is still a very powerful institution it retains control in of key ministries and has reserved twenty five percent of seats in parliament for serving officers it ran the country for decades before finally agreeing to give up some power and it really is the military chief who is in charge of the security crackdown in northern rakhine state she has seen a saying they should take their nationals back i.e. they should be allowed to cross back over the border but the key thing here is the route injure and work stateless i mean how likely is that. well on the other government's position is this they will allow their citizens back in but as you said the revenger are not considered citizens they're stateless they don't hold national identity cards they hold national verification cards now an
al-jazeera spokesman said yes we will allow our of injury refugees back in provided they have the right documents if by right documents he means i.d. cards well well then they won't be allowed back in if by chance he means verification cards then possibly but what are the chances that people who are running for their lives have seen their homes and tired villages burned down will have identity documents on them and let's not forget they're not the first wave of refugees to cross into bangladesh there are already about four hundred thousand living there languishing in camps they've been fleeing in waves to escape persecution in military campaigns over the past decades and myanmar hasn't taken them back in the government's position is essentially that they were hinge or they're not even referred to as revenge on this country they're referred to as bengalis to imply they're from neighboring bangladesh don't belong in this country florence thanks very much. north korea's foreign ministry has denounced new un sanctions over its nuclear program in a statement the ministry said this the resolution was fabricated by the us
employing all sorts of despicable and vicious means and methods pyongyang also promised to redouble efforts to increase its strength to safeguard the country so for empty its ambassador to the u.n. is threatening consequences for the united states to force coming misuse by the particularly. will make the u.s. cell phone creates pain it's never experienced in its history well the u.s. president donald trump said the sanctions are only a very small step towards dealing with pyongyang nuclear program. we had a vote yesterday on sanctions we think it's just another very small step. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing not not big i don't know if it has any impact but certainly it was nice to get a fifteen to nothing vote but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen under thomas is our correspondent in seoul andrew so
the the war of words continues how do they think this is going to develop. well that war of words really does continue as you say a sort of clip of the north korean ambassador to the u.n. speaking in geneva in more recent hours the north korean regime has put out a statement through its foreign ministry it's called the resolution resolution two three seven five illegal and evil provocation and it said that the resolution will strengthen the regime's ambition to follow this road the nuclear missile road at a faster pace without the slightest diversion they're going to redouble their efforts by establishing a practical equilibrium with the u.s. and quite strong words there by the north korean regime also it would seem that the south korean government has put out its own statement in reaction to that in the last few hours and they've said that this statement by the north koreans is of the lower level of reaction compared to the north korean statements on previous u.n.
resolutions so the back and forth continues they've the north koreans to end the cycle of provocation followed by sanctions they want them to come to the negotiating table they want them to talk but at the same time the south koreans to on wednesday released pictures and i think you're about to see them now of their own missile test day. this missile launch from a fighter jet this was a missile that was fired within south korean territory i should obviously add that flew and lined it on a very specific target just off the south korean coast they're trying to demonstrate here the south koreans that they have missile capacity of their own and that they would be able to launch a very targeted missile out of very specific sites in north korea if the need were to arise they're trying to send a signal by releasing this video but they too have missiles and they too would use them if necessary so korea of course want to this latest group of sanctions to be much much stronger if that happens that will do nothing however to decompress the
tensions across a very big region. you're quite right and donald trump there in the clip you showed a few moments ago obviously wanted the same the united states and south korea was pushing for example for a total oil embargo of north korea they didn't get its oil exports well all of the imports will be kept but they won't be ended and i don't think that go strong up but there is of course a balance and donald trump referred to it he got his fifteen to zero resolution passed by the u.n. security council had the resolution being strong it wouldn't have passed and that would have been disastrous for the international community and for united states but donald trump they're saying what many in south korea feel that this is only a small step and they needs to be ultimately action that goes a lot further but it's got to go up to the point at which it deters north korea from further nuclear tests from carrying on with its missile program but at the same time doesn't provoke them into taking action early and of course the concern
here on the streets of seoul is actually less about what kim jong un might think in a sense his unpredictability has become quite predictable and the people in this city in seoul have lived with the threat from the north are many many decades now of course the concern in a sense is what donald trump might do you might be some kind of unilateral action or north korea some point provoking them to attack so that's the concern here but there's no sense of panic here they've lived with this threat for an awful long time and there isn't yet a feeling the anything dangerous is imminent today right thank you. lots when you still come for you here from al-jazeera including these two and i on victory here rocky forces preparing for what they hope is the last phase of their war against i saw. plus three years of conflict.
hello there we've had some rather serious flooding across parts of your recently festival italy so all the heavy downpours but now they've moved across croatia as well here's an image showing how heavy that rain was as it pounded down and then the flooding started some parts of croatia reported up to two hundred eighty millimeters of rain from the system and that did give us a major problem with the flooding now the system responsible is pulling away towards the north as you can see from the satellite pictures i things for this region a definitely coming down now in fact there's not a great deal left to it as we head through wednesday really has broken up instead we'll see more intense storms working from the northwest so lots of heavy rain here oversee not that warm either and that gradually pushes its way southwards as we head through thursday so on thursday again it's the hours where we're going to see some of the heaviest of the rains and they could be some problems here to the north of that staying cool just seventeen in london but down towards the southeast and parts of europe still very very hot here with bucharest twenty nine for the other
side of the mediterranean you can see the winds here all filtering down from the north so it's certainly not too hot to along the north coast of egypt or into libya force in chile as the winds are still feeding down from the northwest on wednesday but it changes for us on thursday and the temperatures his shoot up. it would.
welcome back here with al-jazeera live from doha your headlines. at the start of the a meeting of the arab league in cairo descended into acrimony with ministers from cattle and the four states blockading it insults a cattery diplomat called the gulf monarchies critics rabid dogs and accuse quote some regimes of waging a media campaign against it that drew an angry response from egypt which rejected the accusations as baseless insults. north korea has rejected the latest round of un sanctions and is threatening painful consequences for the u.s. the measures are aimed at reigning in pyongyang's nuclear program president trump

a confident the next battle will be swift and decisive. we shall retake how we judge just like we took mosul and we are now waiting for the. orders to advance to who we are in the process of reinforcing our positions and fortifying our defense lines and i feel rats will be squashed soon by how. well confidence is high the military operation to recapture who ija is expected to be a complicated one there are two main front lines for what we here at west of the town and here at southwest. both battle fronts are linked by a series of watch towers and trenches. soldiers are clearing the surrounding desert by burning bushes to make it easier for them to move in their armored vehicles the battle won't just be fought by militias providing support will be the iraqi army counterterrorism forces and the federal police the kurdish peshmerga will also be involved but given tensions in nearby kirkuk which the kurds claim the government
leaders in baghdad say is federal iraqi territory corp it will be complicated. there are mountain tensions and car cooking caused by the sectarian dimension that is making it boil and might lead to the deterioration of security situation leading to a standoff among the different forces. despite the potential takeover the last remaining eisen stronghold in iraq the group's ideology will not be completely wiped out and it will remain a challenge. the problem is not with eisel alone it is by the oppression of the sunni communities even if i still is the fee to incur cooke's how we for example the oppression of the sunni community continues by the shia led government then we may see another wave of violence maybe worse than i saw the ideology of i still would still resonate among the people combating the group's ideology is a concern for many both here and abroad many iraqis say that the root causes for
the rise of a group like i still haven't been addressed and there's also the issue of what to do with the fighters and their family members after all they are. some of the iraqi citizens now there's no concrete plan from the kurdish or the iraqi authorities for rehabilitation or even imprisonment leaving many to wonder if there is a concrete plan for post eisel iraq m.r. carney al jazeera i do feel. the french president among all my home has been surveying the damage on some not in the caribbean eleven people died when hurrican tore through the island which is split between the netherlands and france is promising to boost security as the people there continue to rebuild the dominican republic has invited delegates from venezuela's government and opposition to see if they can resume talks to end the political crisis at least one hundred thirty people have died in antigovernment protests since april demonstrators blame president nicolas maduro for high inflation and a shortage of basic goods. it's been almost three years since the nigerian army
forced boko haram fighters out of the northeast states of a mama families that now began returning to their homes only to find their villages and towns destroyed catherine sawyer reports the ruins town of meat you guys are reminded of when boko haram controlled this area for several months around two years ago charges were destroyed so banks entire neighborhoods where we do used to rubble. or government strikes. government offices that wind this compound are just beginning to be rebuilt by derrius who had fled coming back and the town is starting to thrive again. after the town was taken back by the government we returned but found nothing we had lost so much but now some of us are getting back our. fire to you know site and has seven children returned two months ago this is what remains of the home she shared with her
husband who she says was killed by. her neighbors helped her resettle in a new home and. we had nowhere to stay so neighbors house that was for a while then they contributed money to help my family and i many people who were displaced from towns and villages in adama's state eager to get on with their lives but several thousand who remain in camps in the state capital yola aren't so sure this is one of the few remaining camps in our state the nigerian military has taken back most of the areas controlled by a few years back and now the government wants people to go back home but those here villages are still unsafe most of those areas are in neighboring borno state and asked around it by boko haram in their fight for an islamic state the displaced receive help from nonprofit organizations such as the civil society qualification
for poverty eradication one of the things we also advocate and government at all levels both our state and on the national level is to say the citizens of this country regardless of what i did was all indigenous of this i mean or whatever states also find themselves first and foremost julien's gives them the right and privilege to do well in any location wherever they choose to stay in this country the government says the bill to repair the war damage in the northeast is nine billion dollars he is confident that she will soon rebuild her home and her life but some scars such as the killing of her husband will never heal. three astronauts have arrived to spend nearly six months on the international space station the two americans and a russian docked six hours after they blasted off in a soyuz capsule from kazakhstan they join three others have been on station since the month of july. apple's unveiled a new line of products that has tech geeks all aflutter the i phone ten has no home button it will turn your facial expression into an emergency and it has on board

has to pay for that the price of the new phone might help the new i phone is the most expensive phone apple has ever released more than double the price of the first i phone released more than a decade ago leaving many to wonder if this new phone is nothing more than an expensive toy for those fortunate enough to be able to buy it in many countries the monthly median income doesn't even come close to the price tag of the new phone for example in brazil households make just six hundred twenty seven dollars a month in china it's five hundred fifteen dollars meaning a household would need to work two months to afford the phone and in nigeria at two hundred twenty two dollars the average family makes only a fourth of what one new i phone ten costs i think they stick the stick to their core principles of design first and excellence and they price it but those
