and. brought him in so i had. the british. terror threat level to critical. aspects. on the ground attack. the iraqi kurdish parliament back at independence referendum. and the grand finale after a twenty year journey. spacecraft. and. we begin this program with global reaction to north korea's latest ballistic missile tests the international community is still scrambling to react to five days launch but the north korean leader remains defiant in a statement kim jong un says the final goal is to achieve an equilibrium of force
6:02 am
with the united states north korean media says kim personally oversaw the launch of the song twelve missile but the u.n. security council has condemned the missile test calling it highly provocative and a threat to all u.n. members russia is pledging to implement the latest round of sanctions bob has been joined by china and france and pushing for talks is the only way to resolve the crisis but u.s. president may have other ideas in his speech to troops he emphasized that military options are also available well mike hanna has this report from washington d.c. . the u.s.s. cole celebrates its seventieth anniversary and here to address the troops and their families president trump makes clear the air force may have a role to play in a christian ongoing north korea crisis after seeing your capabilities and commitment here today i am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming earlier speaking at the white
6:03 am
house the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. emphasize that sanctions could still be an effective weapon if you look at the resolutions that have passed in the last month or two of them they cut thirty percent of the oil they banned all the labors they banned ninety percent of the exports they banned joint ventures we've basically taken in the words of north korea we have strangled their economic situation at this point that's going to take a little bit of time but it has already started to take effect the national security adviser agreed but stressed diplomacy was not the only option these sanctions are just now taking effect what's really important is rigorous enforcement of those sanctions so that we can let the economic actions and diplomacy progress as best we can but i think we ought to make clear what's different about this approach is is that we're out of time right as investor hiley said before you know we've been kicking the can down the road and we're out of road
6:04 am
and so for those who have said and it been commenting about the lack of a military option there is a military option following yet another north korean missile launch despite several rounds of sanctions the u.s. is clearly exploring other options and while the north korean leader may watch admiringly he could soon be facing u.s. action planned by the secretary of defense rather than the ambassador to the united nations mike hanna al-jazeera washington. well let's go to our correspondent in seoul now andrew thomas is joining us live from there does the u.n. security council condemnation go as far as seoul wants andrew in terms of reaction to the test. well the security council resolution was passed on monday and now we had this extra condemnation on friday but there's nothing new in that and the issue as far as the international community is concerned is that they are split north korea for all its faults many felt it least has
6:05 am
a unified voice kim jones when it comes to presenting its position to the world the international community does not cover most of the talking about the end of the road there's no road to kick the can any further down and yet china and it sounds like france as well as suggesting there is more of a road to travel along the sanctions need to be given time to take effect the u.s. doesn't seem to have the patience to let that happen and that split in the international community really plays into north korea's hands they put out a very strong statement overnight celebrating their successful missile launch they say that it is showing the big power chauvinists how our state attains the goal of completing the nuclear force despite their limitless sanctions and blockade as you said earlier the statement said that the final goal is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the u.s. to make the u.s. rulers dare not talk about military options for the d.p. r. k. for north korea and of course and that is the fear of the united states that their
6:06 am
missile program the nuclear missile program north korea gets to a point at which military options are not an option because of the risk to the u.s. mainland to go on or whatever of taking that course so consistently defiant kim jong un and when as you've mentioned a divided international community on how to deal with kim jong un and north korea and what had a change in what the south korean president is saying up until the last missile test he was calling for dialogue since the last month he's been saying that it's impossible. that is the word impossible that is a very strong word from president when j. and he was seen as a bit softer on north korea than his predecessor he for example didn't want the found defense shield system put in place in south korea pre-election because he thought that might make south korea more of a threat he's gone full circle on that you know welcomes a third missile defense system and he's now actively talking about south korea's military options it's interesting that on friday as soon as north korea launched
6:07 am
its missile south korea launched one of its own it flew same distance it would have needed to fly to take out that missile launch site it wasn't fired at north korea the south koreans didn't think the north korean missile was actually a threat but they were trying to make a point that they were watching that launch site and they were ready to attack it in a real world world scenario if necessary and president moon has talked a lot more about this three pillar approach that south korea has always had but always sort of kept in the background is now coming to the foreground the idea of preemptive action on north korea if necessary the idea of intercepting a missile in the air and the idea of punishment of overwhelming routes hal or a jury attacks on north korea if the north were to launch an attack that kind of language from south korea is new it's unusual it's always been there to some extent but now it's being talked about more openly or at entry thank you very much for that or fanaa that's andrew thomas joining as of the very latest from seoul thank

sharp and south east involved in the four weeks into the crisis authorities still prepared for the influx. waiting for the boats to come but for these rohingya refugees from myanmar there are still the not so small matter of haggling with the bangladeshi boatman not easy when you've got no local currency. with flame because they're torturing and killing us on the other side we have to pay whatever the price of the protest no matter how high. some boatmen have been accused of charging exorbitant fees it's a touchy subject. if i was to take money from it would be saying i'm a muslim i'm not excusing anyone. the boatman say they're risking their lives to bring refugees across with little support. of the security forces here tell us that so kind for us to bring refugees in but we should do it discreetly if we do it
