split on how to deal with the growing tensions u.s. president donald trump says all options are on the table as north korea continues to launch nuclear tests despite sanctions and condemnation 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 be undoing 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 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 bank and ninety percent of the
11:03 am
exports they've 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 really 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 is best for hill he said before you know we've been kicking the can down the road and we're out of road and so for those who have said and it been ripped if 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
11:04 am
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 china's ambassador to washington has called on the u.s. to refrain from making threats over north korea. told reporters on friday that he believes the u.s. should be doing much more to ensure effective international cooperation and set of threats he says the u.s. must find ways to resume dialogue and negotiation. yes president our trump is expected to meet japanese prime minister shinzo lobby in new york next week to discuss a response where the latest launch hanging out has the capacity to strike the japanese mainland their pride has more from the u. s. air base in the japanese city of. as important as the statement released by the north korean regime saying that there was on twelve rockets was now
11:05 am
operationally ready and that their final goal was to establish a call librium of real force with the united states where the photographs that they released there is kim jong un smiling laughing celebrating with his top scientists as he personally oversees that rocket launch the idea is to present a picture of the light of confidence and of unity by the north korean regime and for that to contrast with the splits in the international community because clearly now there is a split the united states of course wanting tougher sanctions imposed by the united nations on monday they didn't get them they had to compromise they didn't get a total oil embargo and there are clearly people within the u.s. administration who don't even want to let these sanctions that work past take their course they want to consider other options military options and yet china is saying that their role is to do no more no less in their words than make sure that those u.n. resolutions are in force in other words they want sanctions to take their course and other countries do as well while the international community is splits north
11:06 am
korea in a sense is laughing this is what they want south korea is stuck somewhere in between they too wanted tougher sanctions passed on monday but what they really don't want is for the u.s. to take some kind of unilateral military action because that could provoke the north koreans to attack the south and that's the last thing they want so the international community stuck in a very difficult position. the british prime minister has raised the u.k.'s terror threat level from severe to critical after an explosive device partially detonated on the london underground train on friday theresa may says she took the decision after advice from security officials twenty nine people were injured in that incident which happened during morning rush hour today baba joins us live now from parson garden where all of this and happens so. does this change and threat level and unfortunately the u.k. is used to this nevertheless what will it actually mean what it's going to look
11:07 am
like for people on the street. well rasho this is the fifth time since the system was introduced in two thousand and six the level has been the international threat level to the u.k. has been at its highest critical which means that an attack is expected imminently previously it was at severe which meant that an attack was highly likely the last time we saw it a critical was after the manchester arena bombing back in may what it means practically is that members of the military will be deployed around the country at what they call close protected sites places that are not open to the public but. highly strategic important possible targets for attackers and by doing that that will free up. we understand around a thousand armed police officers to do to be deployed on the public transport
11:08 am
system in london but in other places as well and to patrol the streets basically to send a message to the public that it is say to carry on it's day to day business you can probably see parsons' green sheep station has been reopened people coming and going there are a few police officers here as well we know that people are starting to get used to the idea of seeing more armed officers around and on the streets after the recent attacks but of course it's always a a close call whether whether this actually reassures people if it carries on for a long time or actually makes people more nervous today what do we know about what investigators are finding southpaw are at least what they're saying publicly. well resell firstly let's remind our viewers that on friday i saw claimed that it
11:09 am
was behind. and of course it's believed that the aim was to for the device the improvised explosive device on the train to explode perhaps further on in its journey it was going from wimbledon in the south west london through this station towards central london during rush hour twenty nine people were taken to hospital mostly with burns at least eight have now been discharged. we know that police say they're making good progress they haven't arrested anybody so far but the british media are saying it's understood they do actually have an image they believe of the person who put the device in the underground train they say that term we have to be open minded about him and potential associates a direct quote from the country's top anti terrorism police officer he he's not giving away exactly whether they think there was more than one individual
11:10 am
involved of course they will be trying to find out if there are if there's a group of associates out there after the manchester bombing let's not forget that there was detail of the of a suspected attacker released in the us which had meant that police here had to bring forward their operations and make arrests perhaps earlier than they had planned to do so so they're remaining cautious at the moment going through lots of c.c.t.v. footage from the train and from elsewhere to see if they can find any evidence and of course the device itself might give them clues in terms of d.n.a. fingerprints and so on. not unlike the price in london thanks again. u.s. president began tweeting about the london incident soon after happen despite no details being released about suspects suspected the suggested rather the attackers were known to u.k. police the tweets were described as unhelpful by british officials as her tour again the reports. hours after the attack on a london underground train u.s.
11:11 am
president donald trump made a series of controversial comments on social media including the suggestion that the suspects were known to british police he tweeted another attack in london by a loser terrorist these are sick and demented people who were in the sights of scotland yard must be proactive he went on to say the travel ban stopping people from some muslim majority countries travelling into the u.s. should be followed tougher and more specific his comments made before police released any information about the attackers all the motives led some to accuse the president of jumping to conclusions but he reiterated them later when speaking outside the white house. showing. we have to be very hard we've been very very tough. we were not nearly. british
11:12 am
police described his comments as on helpful and theresa may was unimpressed i never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation as i've just said the police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible critics say trumps willingness to speak out about this attack and others where muslims are suspected to be involved is it all it's with his response to incidents such as the white supremacist rally in charlottesville last month where a woman was killed in a car attack when there are acts of terrorism that's where the perpetrators it is worldview. is almost in a kneejerk. you know. react to state but when it is not the people that. you condemn then he will be much more deliberate about his statements. it's not clear if trump's tweets were based on intelligence or speculation either way they
