suggest there could be a new mediation channel or students are going to shoot we have to come down the hotheads to understand that we do need courses that we need some context if there are those that wish to be mediators i would actively welcome that the media is could be one of the neutral european countries that's an intriguing possibility there are a number of nations that would fit the bill switzerland or perhaps one of the e.u. countries that is not a member of nato and austria finland multi or sweden sweden would be well placed its foreign minister margot will stream is a former un and e.u. official it currently sits on the security council and has had an embassy in pyongyang since the one nine hundred seventy s. the general assembly week at the united nations is drawing to a close but the north korean crisis will stay in the spotlight with north korea's foreign minister giving his address on saturday james closed out jazeera at the
2:04 am
united nations. john howard's is director of the atlantic council's dinner patricia eurasia center he's joining us now from washington d.c. thank you very much indeed for your time so this seems to have degenerated into a slanging match between two world leaders is there any room for diplomacy in this . this is kind of a farce. the overheated rhetoric is typical for north korea it's not helpful the overheated rhetoric is unfortunately now coming from washington to this too is not helpful but i'm not sure there's either diplomatic and there certainly not a military solution to this. the north korean regime is determined to have nuclear weapons determined to develop advanced missile technology and it seems that we're going to have to live with this we are the world's and have to live with us at the same time this is a danger and in order to cope with this danger i think that you are probably
2:05 am
looking at missile defense in south korea missile defense in japan and of course north korean development of nuclear capacity in this capacity will only encourage the governments in seoul and tokyo to consider their own nuclear capacity we seem to be seeing a pattern of tit for tat in terms of the build up of missiles protected from north korea and obviously this latest suggestion by north korea's foreign minister that is only a suggestion that they might test a hydrogen bomb in the pacific is there anybody in on either side who is in a position to encourage either of the leaders to dial back on this rhetoric to allow some sort of breathing space for some sort of diplomatic solution. again i don't think this rhetoric means we're about to go to war it just means that normally you simply have one side the north koreans spouting ridiculous statements now you seem to have two sides of the one country that could exert serious
2:06 am
influence towards reducing real tensions as china but it has been reluctant to confront its north korean ally for reasons having to do with its desire to maintain some sort of enclave outside of american influence on the korean peninsula if china were to step up and act responsibly that could be a positive step we've seen little real willingness on the part of beijing to do that china has of course suggested that its central bank is no longer going to do any business with north korea as part of the sanctions that were brought in by the u.n. security council is not an indication that china at least is getting tired of the situation and there is at least feeling some sort of pressure to take action that will result in some sort of solution well i think you're right it demonstrates that china feel some pressure they would certainly like their clients in north korea to behave better but then he steps they take on sanctions or are very very

calibrated so as not to do major damage and therefore they cannot be truly persuasive. to her thank you very much indeed for your time much appreciated. british prime minister wants a two year transition period once the u.k. leaves the european union today is amazed as the u.k. needs to stay in the single market under its current terms at least during that time to ensure a smooth withdraw it's an opinion which is met with mixed reviews from european leaders have barker has more from florence. it's the birthplace of the rene psalms and explosion of arts culture and commerce that defined europe. visitors have been drawing inspiration here for centuries from the works of davinci and michelangelo to the father of political backstabbing machiavelli enter to reason may the embattled british prime minister arrived hoping for a political renee songs of her own words to help soothe divisions within her party
2:08 am
and end three months of stalled negotiations with the e.u. we start from an unprecedented position in terms of our current relationship with you we remember we're coming out but that enables us to build a different sort of partnership for the future the speech called for a new creative economic legal and security arrangements with the e.u. she also proposed a two year transition period after the brics a deadline in march two thousand and nineteen to help ease britain's departure it is clear that what would be most helpful to people and businesses on both sides who want this process to be smooth and orderly is for us to agree the details arrangements for this implementation period as early as possible the u.k. has also promised to fulfill its financial obligations to europe avoiding any shortfalls in the blocs finances but for those who voted for breaks in the plan means two more years of e.u. control. and iconic location for an important address but the real audience was in
2:09 am
brussels e.u. officials praised her constructive spirit but called for greater clarity to reserve a is here in florence trying. to build bridges between the e.u. and the u.k. she's trying to say that even after breakfast it u.k. shares a common cultural and historic identity with great cities like florence and the rest of the continent but the view from brussels is that she is simply demanding the best of both worlds and that can't be allowed to happen. these protestors many of them british citizens living in italy believe rex it is a big mistake if people were never informed of all the reasons about the whole issue and i think now is the world gets smaller it becomes more and more important for us to be together and be unified and i think it can be very very difficult for the u.k. going forward and i think it will be a decision that we will regret and the preacher thank you to reason may wants to
2:10 am
refrain breck's it is a historic moment focusing not on the differences between nations but on political vision. but with questions still remaining about the u.k.'s border with the republic of ireland the status of a united living in the u.k. and exactly how much britain will pay to leave the e.u. it's a vision many in europe a still struggling to share. al-jazeera florence or john spring for it is director of research at the center for european reform and he says terry says maizie speech like to detail. well i thought it was a. speech which was constructive in tone which is the twenty seven will like that i think there are also like the idea that the u.k. will make a commitment to european security that will go down well but in terms of real specifics you know we're in twelve months into a negotiation where there's a lot of nitty gritty that needs to be sorted out and there wasn't
2:11 am
a great deal of that and there were some very commitments on the money and on citizens' rights not really very much in northern ireland and then some very vague statements about the future trading relationship the problem is that trust has got to such a low ebb between the two sides now and. is helpful in the fact that she struck such a constructive tone is really good and i think that the fact that when we. mean that the speech itself is not going to be enough to be able to move on to the next stage of the talks that's going to have to come in the negotiations plenty more ahead of the news hour including just days before an independence referendum in neighboring iraq syrian kurds begin paving the way for their regional autonomy. also the trumpet administration takes yet another shot at a travel ban for muslim majority nations we'll tell you about new proposed restrictions. in sports in europe takes on rest of the world team.
2:12 am
is going to be here with action on the first day. tens of thousands of people in puerto rico are being moved amid fears that that was damaged and how they can maria will break at least six people were killed when the how they can hit the island on wednesday almost thirty have been killed across the caribbean and the number is expected to rise the u.s. national weather service has issued a flash flood emergency over the structural integrity of the dam authorities are evacuating two towns downstream of it about seventy thousand people are being made to leave their homes and the gallic is joining us live with the latest from san juan puerto rico first of all do we know what the latest is about the. well i think you basically have as much information as we do remember communications around here across the island but why attic
2:13 am
a dam is about an hour's drive north west of us here we're told there is a structural failure in the dam a crack in the dam wall it's a fairly small dam around five square kilometers and i think what officials here are doing is taking precautions and moving those seventy thousand people who were talking about to higher ground but this really goes to the failure of puerto rico's infrastructure i've been here many times over the last couple of years to talk about the bankruptcy here and what's being done about it this island is seventy three billion dollars in debt that means there's been no investment in things like reservoirs lakes and dams and of course the power grid because you can see lights on behind me here in san juan but they are from generators and the power here is the biggest problem because if you don't have power you don't have telephone communication you have air conditioning people can't get back to business and all these lights you see behind me a generator is running from diesel and that diesel is slowly but surely running out
2:14 am
we actually spent the day here in san juan at a children's hospital it's running from a generator we went to a local businesses that are also doing the same thing and they all said the same thing to me and that is that they need help and that time is running out because when the fuel runs out all those businesses and potentially even the hospitals can't even put the lights on and one of the biggest problems with a situation like this in a disaster when there is flooding is also of course disease and the long term damage that flooding can cause is one thing to be able to rebuild a house and put a roof on it but the actual infrastructure itself out of the ground itself when it's flooded is very weak to build on that's going to present an enormous problem for the economy which is as you say already struggling. i mean this is not going to be a fast recovery there is no question about that they are talking about the power potentially coming back on. next year i mean think about that if you are someone who's lost your home or is just rebuilding your home and you don't have electricity
2:15 am
and you have perhaps six children like one woman we met today that is a real disability and that and that really goes to the problem of the infrastructure in puerto rico but of course you as you were saying water borne diseases are also a problem you've got the mountainous areas here of which there are many where there have been mudslides you know even a couple days after hurricane maria came through we still don't have a full picture of the extent of the damage but certainly from the places that we've been the people that we met there is no life that has been left untouched by hurricane maria here in puerto rico and a thanks very much indeed for mexican authorities are refusing to give up hope of finding survivors three days after an earthquake killed at least two hundred eighty six people the rescue operations been extended following crews are helping to sift through the rubble more than fifty buildings have collapsed in mexico city when tuesday's seven point one magnitude quake struck on officials this is joining us from mexico city just give us an indication first of all what's happening there. just in the last
2:16 am
couple of minutes have been calls for to start families names and the math family members of pass by me looking i'm actually excited and what it is going to be said we know from people that we're going to speaking to over the last hour or so that this is specter six people trapped in the building behind me on the roof we've now seen more people walking near where we have any point during the day they're trying to remove as many layers of rubble as they can quickly and safely at the problem is their own forty families here waiting for news and so us there are only six points that we think our lives and that is going to be bad news for a lot of families who have spent a lot of time here doing not much more than praying and hoping that the good news but certainly for two families just in the last few minutes they have got some news that they have been called to the tent of the authorities and that need be an
2:17 am
indication that they have managed to speak to those people and identify them and therefore they can then identify their family as the process here has been incredibly slow and very difficult we didn't get started to mid-morning because of the very heavy rain we had in mexico city overnight that makes walking on that structure incredibly difficult not only that the weight of the water pushes things down and moved everything around so therefore engineers have got to come in and look at the ways they can perhaps remove the deadly how they can get tunnels to the people that are trapped and we've been speaking to dennis course who is leading the u.s. the id team the second team that says here in mexico they've been on the ground for forty eight hours they've been at other sites they haven't killed anyone alive from the wreckage but they've cleared the sites which means to be able to recover all the bodies and he is still fairly hopeful that with the technology that they have which can cut through concrete which can start to move heavy concrete being that they might still be able to kill people out of that wreckage and really everyone
2:18 am
around here now is waiting for news from the building it has been an incredibly long day and. in possibly frustration for the. news there was some concern from the families that in me bring in heavy equipment and they thought that would indicate. we know there are six people in the. imaging they are going to bring in some heavy equipment to move parts of the roof what happened was the building and think there may be areas where people have survived and that is the people that they are trying to get to at the moment alan fischer thanks very much indeed a twenty four hour demonstration in barcelona has ended after six people were arrested for supporting an independence referendum were released they remain under investigation for disobedience abuse of power and embezzlement they were arrested in relation to the planned ballots must appear before the court each week the spanish central government oppose the vote it plans to send police to the catalan
2:19 am
region if the top of the first poll goes ahead of. iraq's kurdish leader massoud barzani he says monday's independence referendum will definitely go ahead despite international pressure to stop it was speaking in iraq's kurdish capital build the final rally before monday's vote among the critics of the united states the european union and the arab league by zani says whatever the outcome of the referendum the kurds are happy to fight alongside iraqi forces against i saw. i tell the world leave the kurds expressed their own rights and decide their own independence we cannot continue any longer to status quo with the federal government in baghdad the referendum is not to risk the referendum is not to draw new voters it is to confirm and insist on our right for independence the real risk if you let others decide your fate meanwhile syrian kurds have voted in an election
2:20 am
which is widely seen as the start of a three phase process to show up regional autonomy in the country's north the people who win the commune on elections will go on to contest local council elections in november they'll also contest a third poll to form a body to act as a regional parliament syrian kurdish autonomy plans are opposed by the government in damascus. as you know this election is happening at a critical turning point in the northern syrian region it's a key step to set up democracy in our areas because in the past the syrian ruling party used to appoint the local representatives this is no more now our community can have their say. drivers won't be allowed to pick up fares in london from next month the firm is losing its license to operate there london's transport authority says it's worried about public safety he says obama hasn't been doing enough to check drivers' backgrounds or medical conditions over accuses london of being
2:21 am
closed to any of it of companies it plans to appeal the decision not in baba reports and how the decision is going down in london. for the last year has been driving for he works six days a week and says he makes enough money to support his family he enjoys being able to choose when he works he's one of forty thousand diva drivers in the british capital but now the regulators transport for london who run the city's buses and underground trains so they were. extend dupers license beyond the end of the month for many people who got used to the service it's a shock so you can cross to go from one place to another saying quickly. when i came out as i are ok this is obviously not she was going to train but i still feel like i'm i don't feel like i'm paying ridiculous amounts. to a lack of corporate responsibility in areas such as the reporting of serious criminal offenses it follows allegations that drivers suspected of sexual assaults
2:22 am
were allowed to keep driving spent some time going through the regulations that parliament's given them a russian to decide in a private vehicle approaches for some proper. evidence and tearful have concluded today that on our system proper vehicle operator the real concerns around safety and security has come out fighting suggesting t.f. else decision is motivated not by safety concerns but by politics and promising to fight the move in the courts by trying to ban in london there caving into the pressure exerted by a small minority that want to restrict consumer choice and competition this decision if it helps true will mean over forty thousand licensed drivers will be out of work traditionally after london's west end. restaurant people with a hail a black taxi cab five years ago arrived and caused
2:23 am
a sensation with just a few clicks on your mobile phone you can get to where you're going to at a cheaper price but of course it's caused controversy as well. last year dr james fire took the firm to court arguing drivers should be treated as employees with rights to the minimum wage and sick pay judges agreed with him to appeal the ruling next week. is they should evolve regulations for attorney twenty first century they should enforce and develop regulations effectively and they should protect worker rights of drivers can carry on operating in london at least until appeals have been exhausted but this is one more set back for a firm that's been hit by legal challenges and protests around the world and also made life easier for millions of people. all over is a big player in london where it's got forty thousand drivers and it's used by three point five million people it's
2:24 am
a similar picture in new york city where according to the most recent figures it provides an average of two hundred twenty six thousand rides per day overall drivers have made about five billion trips around the world it operates in more than six hundred cities in twenty four countries. as assistant opinion editor for the guardian he's writing on technology and ups for the observer's new review he's joining us from london we appreciate your time thank you very much what's your reaction to this. i think this is a good decision is good to see that government is a lost tackling one of these big tech companies and trying to regulate them properly for too long it seems to these companies were able to act as they wanted in carrying out their business so long as they were providing a service that people enjoyed but that can't be allowed to continue can't just be that companies can do whatever they want so long as people are enjoying what they provide to them and in making this decision take tear fell as per the the.
2:25 am
level playing field for all companies at the forefront of the concerns you describe it is a level playing field but of course it is being open to allegations that. simply came in five years ago and challenge the monopoly that the black car companies had in london that dear fellow is basically supporting the black cab drivers against what do you say to that. it's a myth that before you became a long there was no other service in london for private hire apart from black cabs i've lived in london all my life there have always been many cabs in london and they've usually been taping them back cabs the difference is that we came in with a really impressive service that people wanted to use it was different it was revolutionary it has changed the way that people use taxis but in doing so and even lowering its prices such an extent it undercut lots of other services it doesn't pay its workers the living wage despite the fact that the costs of ruled that they should it's continued to pale that day and it's
2:26 am
a bit rich now but to claim that they're concerned about the jobs of these drivers today refused to give in the rights of the cause of said they should course other large corporations have faced similar similar allegations do you think that where possible city governments like london's should take action against these companies as well. what's been so nice to see in this instance is that here. using the regulations that exist to challenge one of these big corporations what too often is the problem is the regulations are outdated they're not equipped to deal with twenty first century business is the problem that being picked up on this time is to do with passenger safety it was only an organist at the met pointed out that they've been failing to report their drivers have been accused of sexual attacks and where possible of course government must tackle these companies in the regulations they exist but going forward and with business changing the developed technological advance is moving quicker than government can keep up with they need to be updating their regulations for the twenty first century you're making the
2:27 am
point about public safety and of course that's an extremely valid one but it's not the allegations that drivers have faced on just restricted to they are faced by private hire cars and black cab drivers as well are we looking at a situation for it's not so much the model that's a separate issue but there is room for expanding the legislation that exists to cover all taxi services. as i understand it these regulations do apply to all taxi services all private companies must be seen as fair and proper to hold a license to operate in london and there's been some particular concerns with how it operated and it's not new to allegations such as this wherever it is operate is being seen to flout regulations only acting to comply with regulations where it doesn't affect their profitability rather than addressing the concerns that the met the metropolitan place and the london merit had about the way the passenger safety
2:28 am
has been affected there instead choosing to appeal this decision rather than looking at their own behavior there instead instead trying to fight government three point five million people in london use it's a really valuable service especially for women and disabled people who rely on a cheap trustworthy service and what provides with an identifiable driver gives people of faith in the safety of what the police and what the mayor found is that it's not as safe as in my a pair and it would be nice for you to concentrate on improving the quality and safety of this rather than trying to flout the rules of the cities that they operate in. some technology for the observer's new review he's also assistant printing the editor for the paper as well thank you very much indeed. president emanuel has formally signed a controversial overhaul of france's labor laws the measures which triggered protests make it easier for companies to hire and fire stuff micron's government has promised to cut unemployment from its current nine point five percent to seven

nine additional countries what we're learning is that the department of homeland security essentially notified up to seventeen different nations that they failed to meet u.s. screening standards and they had a period of time and wish to become compliant half of those countries did so the remaining half did not as a result could be receiving these targeted restrictions in the form of additional visa requirements and that instead of having the ninety day deadline as we've seen in the past these restrictions would be indefinite now what we are hearing is that this announcement could be made on these expansion in terms of the number of countries affected as early as sunday and that is a significant day given the fact that that is when the current ninety day deadline that will take effect for the band that's currently in place affecting those six middle eastern north african countries so significant in terms of the announce what we expected to come on sunday also significant is the fact that the trumpet
