a lifelong ambition the story. was of my own village and its transformation going behind the lens that's gone from saying brings his personal story to life. al jazeera correspondent my own private bollywood at this time. iran says it successfully tested a new ballistic missile that can carry multiple warheads. were shot here this is al jazeera live from doha also coming at china limits fuel exports to north korea increasing the pressure on leader kim jong. il the number of people killed in mexico's earthquake reaches three hundred as rescuers refuse to
11:36 am
give up hope of finding survivors. isn't one of his name calling to the north korean leader he's taking on american football players protesting against racism. state media and iran have released footage of what they say is see a successful test launch of a new ballistic missile across our has launched was launched rather just a few hours after it was unveiled at a military parade in tehran it follows threats by u.s. president donald trump that washington may withdraw from the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal president hassan rouhani says tehran will not seek permission from any country to strengthen its defense capabilities. has more. on what these are iran's latest ballistic missile with a range of two thousand kilometers they can reach much of the middle east including
11:37 am
israel during his speech president hassan rouhani defended his country's right to protect itself. no matter if you like it or not we will boost our defense and military power to the extent deemed necessary for deterrence we will not seek permission from anyone to defend our. tree and our land. that's likely to cause more anger at the white house president donald trump called iran iraq nation during his address at the u.n. this week and has threatened to withdraw from the two thousand and fifteen nuclear agreement frankly that deal is an embarrassment to the united states and i don't think you've heard the last of it believe me it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that iran's government and its pursuit of death and destruction. a group of six world powers namely china france russia the
11:38 am
united kingdom the u.s. and germany are part of the deal which included the lifting of sanctions for iran scurrying up its nuclear program about analysts say the trump administration isn't likely to back down on the agreement president i think there are two aspects that are problematic about this deal first is his overall perspective towards the muslim world which i would characterize as why would keep intact and the second is basic business s. this deal doesn't make sense from an american business perspective it doesn't benefit the united states economically the core of arc and of the ironically deal is that it brought made a series of concessions on its nuclear program in exchange for the united states essentially lifting sanctions on other countries. the international powers that brokered the deal are pressing the white house stick by it. there grammont prevent
11:39 am
iran from its nuclear activities for ten to fifteen years it also allows to maintain some of its nuclear stockpiles for research and medical purposes although it's not clear what happens after that or if the united states with the drones from their greenman seen ampicillin of al-jazeera. my son there are vicious a visiting research fellow at long university center for middle eastern studies he joins us via skype from copenhagen thanks for your time so speaking of time talk about the timing of this is this in a direct response to the harsh language that u.s. president donald trump have for iran at the united nations. yeah obviously i think this is part of your and your response that's basically supreme leader promised to any wrong moves the coach in coach on the part of the u.s.
11:40 am
administration and it seems that. the hard line. from the trumpets mr ation about. iran deed or way is basically unifying the moderates and hardliners in iran. into one you know and basically the whole force against. the push by trying to send in a stray ssion. iran's nuclear. program and general activities so is is this test or these missiles a violation of any of the sanctions that iran is under and they're under a couple of different sets of sanctions. well they are why elation of the u.s. sanctions but. from that perspective many other things are a violation of u.s. sanctions so. and that's basically what doesn't what the iranian leadership
11:41 am
doesn't care much about but they are not a violation of. join the comprehensive plan of action or here they are on date in their new nuclear the door j c p o a and they are not in violation of un resolution two two three one in the sense that iran interprets it. because like . resolution you have. like the iran has pledged not to. carry out ballistic missile casts designed to carry warheads and like they did the argument on the ring aside is that these. these myside the iran but basically because it's not seeking nuclear weapons and doesn't have orbit basically you by default these missile are not
11:42 am
designed to carry or. so but that's. basically you're in a side of story u.s. saw i interpret this as a violation of u.n. resolution which has basically. stablished or instituted. nuclear deal and i'm talking about the resolution to two. days it's believed that these missiles can reach israel what type of reaction do you expect from them. following. speech delivered by the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. in the general assembly as well as. we saw a strike they carried out in syria i think.
11:43 am
arguably you know we increased tensions and he might see more israeli military moves and. strikes probably in syria. like shorter. flights and like in the longer run a bigger push by israel and by united states to renegotiate. your way. i mean this has a school a three impact but you could see this coming ok. they're rubbish thank you very much china has moved to limit oil exports to north korea and line with the latest round of un sanctions shipments ever find petroleum condensates and liquefied natural gas will be affected china will also ban textile
11:44 am
imports what of north korea's last main sources of foreign revenue this fall is an announcement by president trump that beijing had ordered its banks to stop dealing with pyongyang the chinese government has since denied that said that's not quite right north korea responded on thursday with more threats saying it could conduct a hydrogen bomb test in the pacific ocean so it ran brown continues to follow all of this live for us from beijing so adrian this move by china to the limit oil exports but that in some sort of context for us how significant is that. well the announcement significantly or not was made on saturday by china's ministry of commerce they issued a statement on their website basically saying that china was now implementing what it had to agree to at the united nations last month that means that as of now china is no longer importing textiles from north korea that's significant because textiles are a very important source of hard currency for the regime it also says that as of now
11:45 am
china is no longer exporting products like condensate oil as well as liquid natural gas now again these are very important for north korea but more importantly china is going to significantly limit the amount of oil that it exports to north korea that is going to be capped at two million barrels now we have no data or actually for actually how much oil china exports to north korea it's thought to be about six million barrels so cutting it by two million barrels is i think pretty pretty significant china of course last month agreed to other wide ranging sanctions it's no longer importing coal iron ore or seafood from north korea and of course once more because you know so much of north korea's trade is with china the onus is on china to enforce these sanctions and to re-enter.
11:46 am
the position of china when it comes to banking with north korea u.s. president donald trump has said one thing china is saying and maybe not can you clarify this for us. yeah look at president trump on thursday basically offered more sort of provocative praise of president xi jinping thanking him for the fact that he said china's central bank had now agreed that its banks would no longer deal with north korea well on friday evening china's official foreign ministry spokesman appeared to dispute that he said that wasn't what how china quite viewed it did or didn't conform with china's facts so that once more created a certain amount of confusion i think that what has happened is that privately china has gone along with this because it's worried that the united states might penalize one of its big banks there's been a lot of talk about that and china wants to avoid a situation where one of its banks could be excluded from the u.s.
11:47 am
financial system but what it didn't want to do was to have president trump be a bang in the table and shouting loud and clear about what china had done china prefers to do diplomacy in a much more quiet and discreet way but nevertheless on friday president from one small asserted the president xi jinping was going along with his strategy on banks i made a friend in china president xi and yesterday he basically took the banking industry away from north korea never been. never been you know it's based on relationship relationship is very good but we're dealing with somebody that will figure out he may be smart he may be strategic and he may be totally crazy but you know what no matter what he is we're going to handle it for a leave me. well president donald trump may think he has china
11:48 am
on side but so far we've had no official confirmation from china's central bank that it's doing what president from their outlined so once more we have confusion and contradiction which really have become the whole marks of sino u.s. relations right now and certainly president donald trump and president xi jinping will have an awful lot to talk about if as expected president donald trump begins an official visit to china in november richelle ok adrian brown live for us and beijing adrian thank you well as alluded to the insults continue to fly between the u.s. and north korean leaders with donald trump calling him a madman on twitter and in response to a chemist official statement calling the u.s. president to ranged and i barking dog meanwhile russia says it's time for the war of words to stop and for mediators to step ahead of america to tame space reports
11:49 am
in the united nations. for now it's a war of words but diplomats increasingly fear that the heightened rhetoric coupled with any miscalculation could lead to actual conflict kim myong own has been calling president trump a mad man after trump mocked him as rocket man russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov says it's time for threats to give way to dialogue i asked him about president speech and his threats to destroy north korea do you think that his language his tone and his approach make the world a safer or more dangerous place yes because although we never supported threats which have never solved anything we never supported direct interventions i can say that everyone can sign on to this principle especially when these principles implemented in real life we never supported unilateral actions he went on to suggest they could be a new mediation channel students. we have to come down the hotheads to understand
11:50 am
that we do need courses that we need. 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's not a member of nato oland austria finland multi or sweden sweden would be well placed its foreign minister margo will strum is a former un and e.u. official it currently sits on the security council and has had an.
