5:05 pm
fact that the pressure is on in the country to promote peace despite that despite seeing the fighting that is still ongoing. that's right the point that. i wanted to stress to the u.n. general assembly is that his country is very much on a tight edge that the country is only under the control of the government just about thirty percent of it the rest of it is under the control of rebel groups either. forces and it's goes groups that have led to the displacement of at least a half million people within the country and have forced many others to plea to neighboring countries in search of safety one of the things which. stressed is the ongoing efforts despite those problems to try to build on
5:06 pm
a peace agreement a very nascent peace agreement in order to try to bring stability back to the country of course. this cannot be done just by the government alone that there is much international assistance that is required assistance from the african union assistance from the united nations and to that point he is asking for an additional three hundred to four hundred peacekeepers to join minu which is the peacekeeping operation there in the central african republic in order to help stabilize the country it's a very long and torturous process but the president told the general assembly that the commitment and the political will are there in order to stabilize his country and to bring peace and make it possible for people to return to their homes and live out their dreams all right thanks for that. background on the conflict in
5:07 pm
central african republic. the people of the central african republic have become used to violence for months now and bria thousands have been forced to live in self-made camps after renewed fighting between rival muslim and christian groups the soldiers of the u.n. struggling to contain a four year old conflict that's never been resolved. that what happened here was terrible we were forced to bring our children here where they sleep like animals because of the fighting always gunshots we hardly have anything to eat we have no access to health care our houses were burnt down we have nothing. but tensions go back to twenty thirteen went into religious and ethnic violence broke out. thousands died as a muslim and christian warlords battled for power and money. now a nation that's grown too used to grief threatens to again spiral out of control.
5:08 pm
since may fighting has escalated and it's not just between religions but different factions within the groups hundreds have died and more than a million people have either fled the country or been displaced inside it the international community is struggling to find a solution. u.n. troops were brought in to keep the peace have lost their lives three moroccan soldiers the most recent to be ambushed and killed in july the u.n. says more troops are needed to deal with the upsurge in violence there were in their village they were in their cities they were in their houses and today after those attacks that the tragedy and the population here is a hostage of armed groups and less we are able to reverse the trend and alice we are able to change the situation for them. divided and paul central african republic problems reflects years of conflict and mismanagement france ended its
5:09 pm
peacekeeping mission to its former colony last year while confidence in the un's forces has been damaged by allegations of widespread sexual abuse despite the presence of troops the central government is too weak to control the armed groups outside the capital it warns that if un forces are bolstered soon the country could again descend into chaos duncan crawford al-jazeera. britain's prime minister has proposed a two year transitional deal after the u.k. leaves the european union to reserve. is with europe's leaders in italy on future ties between the u.k. and the european union she says breaks it does not mean the u.k. is no longer a family member of the e.u. britain is scheduled to leave the in march two thousand and nineteen speech
5:10 pm
emphasized shared goals a strong partnership and a fairer divorce deal. it does not mean that we are no longer a proud member of the family of european nations and it does not mean we are turning our back on europe or worse that we do not wish europe to succeed the you to succeed. the success of the e.u. is profoundly in our national interest and that of the wider world but having made this choice the question now is whether we the leaders of britain and of the member states and institutions can demonstrate that creativity that innovation that ambition that we need to shape a new partnership to the benefit of all our people are joining us is new barker year is in florence listening to that speech tell us more about the plan. well they were full of creative ideas as to reason i kept repeating full of optimism
5:11 pm
another word that she used multiple times throughout the course of her speech but what she essentially focused on though was a a series of possible arrangements a wish list is probably the best way to describe it covering everything from new economic arrangements when she made clear would not be along the same kind of lines as currently exist between canada and the e.u. legal arrangements to the where the u.k. courts nor the european court of justice would have the final say on legal disputes for instance between the e.u. and the u.k. also new arrangements between the e.u. and britain when it comes to defense and security without though going into any great details specifics about how these new arrangements will work she just said that more work more to go she ations needs to happen between the u.k. and the e.u. going forward but crucially perhaps the the focal point of this speech is that decision to provide that transition period of two years allowing for there to be
5:12 pm
more of a break since sloped rather than a steep cliff edge she hoped that that would provide a degree of certainty particularly for britain's business world the financial district in the city of london who are worried about a sudden about turn it will allow businesses to prepare for britain's departure from the e.u. and to reason may believe that that is a good freight thing but of course for people who voted for brics it means that five years after the referendum britain will still largely be under a huge jurisdiction and it seems that you wanted to hold on to much of what britain will be leaving when they leave the e.u. and i'm just wondering how this will go down in europe and how it's likely to play out in parliament back. it was he has a fractured and divided parliament even in the build up ahead of this speech we saw the likes of boys johnson foreign minister writing a four thousand word blueprint for how he thought it should be very much
5:13 pm
a heart breaks that she seems to have overcome at least for the sake of the speech those a media division's but it's hard to imagine that behind the scenes those differences of opinion on how brics it should unfold likely to persist and continue in terms of the european perspective we are expecting for young called younger the european commission president to speak very very soon they've been watching this very very closely indeed i think that they will reflect in very much the same way people here in italy of hearing their speeches somewhat of a wish list a set of proposals with where in reality concrete steps are really needed and really want people in brussels are looking for all right thank you. for the first time in history a north korean leader has released a statement to the world in a to kim jong un directly takes aim at u.s. president donald trump calling him deranged a gangster playing with fire and a barking dog has also threatened to test
5:14 pm

5:15 pm
i think it could be a hydrogen bomb test on the ground of an unprecedented scale in the pacific ocean. there hasn't been an underwater or atmospheric nuclear test in decades they are banned under several treaties considered just too dangerous for people and the environment there was immediate condemnation from the two countries in the region likely to be most at risk from a north korean attack to pen and south korea. north korea's remarks and behavior provocative to regional and international security and they are absolutely unacceptable. north korea should immediately stop its direct least provoke ations that will lead itself to isolation and collapse. but kim jong un says trump's remarks convinced him that he chose the correct path and must continue to follow it south korea's president used his speech to the u.n.
5:16 pm
to repeat that his country does not desire the collapse of north korea and to insist that there will not be war again on the korean peninsula he says the situation must be stable the managed so that tensions will not become overly intensified and so that accidental military clashes do not destroy peace kathy novak al jazeera soul still ahead on al-jazeera a grim report for bringing the children skate in violence in manama many are likely to end up as orphans. welcome back as we look at weather conditions across southern parts of china and indochina main feature is the heavy rain we've seen across these southern areas southern parts of china seen some particularly heavy rainfall and we've also had problems across laos and through into miramar and indeed parts of thailand to some
