12:04 am
now like what the north koreans trying to do in a speech. well there was very much an echo of president trump's speech earlier in the week in which he threatened to destroy north korea in the foreign minister's speech there as well he said that firing of nuclear rockets at the u.s. mainland was now inevitable it's a war of words with a very very dangerous edge because we are talking about two potentially nuclear powers coming into a confrontation being edged on by a level of rhetoric seldom seen and certainly not heard within the confines of the united nations general assembly important to notice too that just as a foreign minister was beginning his speech the u.s. staged a fly past north korea with the latest generation b. one bombers escorted by f. of dean eagles this was the furthest north in the korean demilitarized zone
12:05 am
that u.s. forces have flown the sentry this has been confirmed by the pentagon and it's important to note as well is that normally such flights within the d.m.z. are conducted along with either japanese or south korean aircraft on this particular occasions the u.s. operated unilaterally though they say in coordination with the japanese and the south koreans but this very much a signal the pentagon has stated bluntly that this is a demonstration of u.s. resolve and is also intended to send a message to north korea doubtful whether north korea will actually hear it given the level of rhetoric and the sound of anger that one is hearing echoing particularly in the general assembly chamber in the course of the day that's seems to be dean's heels and at this point is there a growing concern that a war of words thus far could develop into something more sinister. very much so numerous diplomats have been pointing to this very fact the russian
12:06 am
foreign minister has said in the course of the previous day that this is like two children fighting in a kindergarten a very dangerous situation a spokesman for the chinese foreign ministry has insisted that the level of rhetoric has got to drop he says that the situation is already complicated a lot of layers at play here and heighten rhetoric is something that will not help find some kind of approach to a solution in this diplomatic impasse china russia both still holding hope that there is some diplomatic process that can resolve this crisis and stop it full thought short of some kind of military confrontation but the rhetoric that we're hearing both from the united states president and from the north koreans certainly doesn't help that according to all diplomatic observers thank you very much mike hanna at the united nations. now china has moved to limit oil exports to north
12:07 am
korea in line with the latest round of u.n. sanctions adrian brown brings us that side of the story from beijing. what china has now essentially begun implementing what it agreed to at the united nations security council on saturday a statement appeared on the website of china's commerce ministry it said that as of now china was no longer importing textiles from north korea textiles have been until now an important source of hard currency for the regime also as of saturday china is no longer exploiting things like liquefied natural gas as well as condensate oil and significantly china is going to limit the amount of oil that it exports to north korea those exports will be capped at two hundred million barrels a year now last month of course china agreed to other wide ranging sanctions against north korea it's no longer importing things like coal iron ore and seafood
12:08 am
on friday president donald trump once more praised china's leaders for the fact that he says china's banks have shut the door on north korea even though less than twenty four hours earlier china's foreign ministry said that wasn't necessarily the case but this was what president trump had to say i made a friend in china president xi and yesterday he basically took the banking industry away from north korea never been the so confusion and contradiction have once more become the hallmarks of sino u.s. relations clearly president donald trump and president xi jinping will have a lot to talk about if as expected president from pays an official visit to china in november. well iraq's foreign minister has used his speech at the united nations to ask iraq's supreme court to reject a kurdish independence referendum which is scheduled for monday despite
12:09 am
international opposition to the vote a law of the island that the first article of the constitution scipio so the sovereignty of iraq is in cannot be divided nor cal its territory. we have here due to the supreme court to issue a decision to reject this so-called referendum which is. opposed each of the organizing concern in late september of this year. turkey's parliament has extended the mandate for its military deployment to iraq and syria in a special session convened in response to the kurdish independence vote it comes as turkey's prime minister ben ali elder and one iraqi kurdish leaders of possible sanctions and military moves if the vote goes ahead and or simmons has more from the turkish city of dealbreakers. more forces have now been deployed on turkey's border with iraq it's no coincidence this exercise started in the run up to the
12:10 am
iraqi kurds referendum on independence. turkey's parliament has now approved the extension of an existing mandate for military intervention in iraq one of several options the details of which have yet to be disclosed. the steps will be taken in close cooperation with iraq iran and other neighboring countries these measures will have diplomatic political economic and security dimensions. the tension has tempered excitement among turkey's minority kurdish population here india but care where there's been violence and dissent for decades many kurds feel weary and anxious about the future the ancient walls of the old city along with temporary fencing mark out no go areas in some poor districts security operations have involved houses being demolished it follows a move by the kurdish armed group p k k to bring the long running conflict to urban
12:11 am
areas as a result kurds who have no connection to the violence have lost their homes while history hasn't treated the kurds at all kindly there are underlying fears here that a referendum in iraq on the dream of independence could present more nightmares and for some here they've had enough nightmares for a lifetime but met mitt dar is defiant he's refusing to move from his home that's earmarked for demolition and he's turned down compensation he believes it's right to have the iraqi referendum now. i'm in favor of the referendum as kurds we should have our rights here the turkish state puts pressure on us oppressing as i even consider moving to iraq now but. aside from a demolition there are teams now working on urban regeneration projects in this
12:12 am
city that's home to around a million kurds but there's a real danger though there's an independence vote by kurds next door in iraq may prove to be more of a hindrance than a help. andrew symonds al-jazeera the article. u.s. backed forces of c. syria's largest natural gas field from iceland there as all province the conoco gas field is the first energy facility of its kind to be taken by the syrian democratic forces which is a rebel coalition of arab in kurdish fighters i still is battling to separate offensives from s.t.'s fighters and syrian government soldiers also trying to drive them out of there as or. france says it's willing to work with other nations on ways to stop iran's missile launches which it's calling destabilizing comes off the iranian state media released footage of what it what they say is the successful test of a new ballistic missile just hours after it was unveiled at
12:13 am
a military parade in teheran the device has a range of two thousand kilometers and can carry multiple warheads it follows threats by u.s. president donald trump that washington might withdraw from the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal or a. senior lecturer in international relations and middle east politics at the university of bradford he says that while iran remains committed to the nuclear deal it's warning the u.s. and israel that it stands ready to defend itself. this is happening at the time that the pressure from the united states is increasing. iran and in my pinny and what happened just yesterday is a manifestation of a new time all for the terror and of course you have to remember that from the beginning of the nuclear negotiation iran remains very determined that it is not prepared to negotiate its defensive mechanism and it is not prepared to negotiate.
12:14 am
at a con of ballistic care program and over the last year we had at least two new regimes of sanctions declared on iran one in january and one in july which is specifically targeted at their missile program so in brief iran basically is sending two different messages at the same time guess we are still committed to the nuclear deal but at the same time we take our self-defense serenely seriously and as president rouhani said on friday iran doesn't see any permission to defend itself. most tell you about in this news hour. quake alarm sound in mexico city is a powerful aftershock shakes buildings days after a devastating earthquake and the sudanese people trying to rebuild their lives after devastating floods destroyed thousands of homes there and its fourteen year upgrade roger federer and rafael nadal on day two of the labor cop.

12:16 am
the border but also in areas around villages where then ethnic cleansing is being done and people are fleeing the villages then there are encountering landmines on the roads trying to get out of that area so it's doubly cool these are weapons which are indiscriminate they're illegal well as the risks and dangers mount henges fleeing between man and bangladesh jonah hall reports now from that order. on a rare day without rain makeshift tents clinging to the muddied slopes and thousands of ranger refugees go about the business of surviving. there is more food available now. and water pumped up from the ground in newly dug wells bamboo sales a booming along with the black plastic sheeting that does little more than draw in
12:17 am
the soaring heat was there but there is urgency still because of the spread of disease a brand new mobile clinic in this camp is inundated. almost every woman carries a child this one with chest problems this one with diarrhea. what are the things that you are most worried about that you. didn't know and you're right up there. yes indeed. then. you know at the front of the queue a young mother khaled a beggar ms her name breaks down with relief medicines are dispensed to treat her daughter's fever and stomach complaint and almost as an afterthought she explains the cheese eight months pregnant. khaled agrees to let us see where she lives
12:18 am
a mother of two with a third on the way her father killed in the escape from me and now barefoot in the filth of a refugee camp. i'm too scared to go back to me in amman now only if there is the sure that the government will not punish us and move think about going back otherwise i'll stay and earn a living in bangladesh i ask if she's afraid to give birth in a place like this of course i'm afraid she says but there's nothing i can do every day more and more people arrive in these camps and every day the camps get more and more organized and every day they say across the border in miramar smoke billows into the air bangladesh doesn't want these people to stay on its side of the border and it's hard to believe me and we want them back the stateless route have become the world's problem now jono al jazeera bangladesh. well the facts of ranger into
12:19 am
bangladesh is having a huge impact on the businesses and residents of the border district of cox as bizarre nicholas sack has more from a locket in the city which is on the me and bangladesh order. here bangladeshis come to buy their daily necessities spices food and vegetables and it's around this market that. have set up camp with the arrival of hundreds of thousands of people a new informal economy has grown there's one item that's particularly popular among these plastic sheeting they're used to build the homes to protect them from the rains inside that counts. the business. of the whole presume one is well the other doesn't so he's saying that business
12:20 am
isn't going as well as it used to he saying that now aid agencies the government are distributing these plastic sheeting for free and therefore he's not getting as much business as he used to. this is the home of a bangladeshi family regularly corner from the refugee camp and look at their home it's made out of the same plastic sheeting that you find inside the camps in fact the circumstances of the refugees and of the bangladeshis living here are very similar the difference is the refugees get international aid these people depend on their government for help and most here live on less than two dollars a day the biggest challenge is that the help that's coming through doesn't build that resentment branches have been coming here for decades leaving persecution and the relationship between local bangladeshi and the ranter refugees hasn't always
12:21 am
been easy. spain's central government in catalan lead is a tussling over who controls the regional police force which is considered key to the success of october's independence referendum spain says the vote is illegal and it will coordinate openness efforts in catalonia to crack down on preparations for the vote and the leaders of course oppose john hendren has more from boss alona. a standoff in catalonia just got more tense and potentially far more volatile the interior minister of catalonia says local police will not take orders from spain and once again we denounce the government's intention to take control of the captain and police the catalan government does not accept the intervention of the state he says that was the message he and catalonia his police chief delivered to the spanish interior minister in a meeting on saturday what we see here is not a technical enough for you to see is a political maneuver the spanish government is trying to take control of the cut of
12:22 am
the police because the spanish government has about its voters that the referendum the country for the game not take place catalonia leaders insist they will carry out an october first referendum and. voters whether to separate from spain spanish president marianna calls that vote illegal and says he will stop it. the most sensible the most reasonable and the most democratic thing to do is to stop they should say there is no referendum they know there isn't going to be one. spain has arrested and released senior catalan government employees instead in three to four thousand national police and civil defense forces to stop the vote spain can no longer count on those seventeen thousand regional bullies known as marceau's and that sets up a potential conflict between two armed forces with very different goals for the national police charged with shutting down the referendum and the more so to see
12:23 am
their duty as protecting the rights of catalans making matters worse the spanish troops are housed in four ships off the coast of catalonia and boycotting local port workers refused to drop the ships as spanish delegate in catalonia says spain is not trying to control the most of those just to coordinate with them but i don't know if what we have is a not a substitute in of the roles of the council on police they keep their role as far as population security goes however they will be helped by the civil guard and national police and they will be coordinated by the interior ministry the muscles have long been criticized for not cracking down on the referendum now it's not at all clear whose side they will be on john hendren al jazeera barcelona well for more on this i'm now joined by plus connelly's jordi one oz via skype from boston and thank you very much for speaking to us realistically can this referendum go ahead on the current conditions. well it's highly uncertain today
12:24 am
if this planet or men keeps its hardline forces from trying to get down there a friend and the blowing thousands of thousands or at least men in catalonia we would first like a difficult day for the normal regular on. recent referendum on next sunday what do you mean by a difficult time we were just listening to a report that by our correspondent john hendren who's in barcelona speaking about the potential for conflict between two armed forces how do you how do you see that playing out in the week ahead. i don't see that the. likely scenario i see him are more a slave to the money released him and will enter into that mode to places or try to prevent borders from entering that that will take places i don't try to
12:25 am
prevent like the ballot boxes getting that. and the ballots themselves getting to the well being racists i think that's the most likely art and we know that the government the spanish government have been taking measures to try and prevent this this vote from taking place they've stated their intention to do so but given what we've seen in terms of their attempts to stop preparations and taking ballot boxes just sticky is it possible for the vote to happen. well that i don't know i mean i of course if we with or this and doing that they're boarding places and taking out that out of the box as a result of what cannot take place however there will be thousands and thousands hundreds of thousands of people in this treats and it will queuing in front of the world in places so we will see what the police is willing to the you know or the
12:26 am
river and these thousands of people to actually roll. that that's their main and start because of course that cornish has the spanish police the thousands of trying to put as many in now we've got i mean these if you were mentioning before have the means to avoid that the question is whether they would be willing to do their research. we know that the prime minister mariano rajoy has declared this vote illegal the spanish fishing judiciary says it's a violation of the country's constitutions what further action might take to to stop a vote. i think he is trying to do date on a possible actions the doorstop the board the plane that i'm just really starting to get control of the unproduced as well and rocking back to iraq and the finances of the rest of the couple and government even i mean obviously we're some govern
12:27 am
economic now bay that there are there is because those things are on full control over there are to finance the public on government so i mean the next steps were created about the next steps but everything seems to point that there will be a lot of these and i like that. they are well appreciate your thoughts from barcelona thank you very much political analyst jordy linnaeus thank you very much. still to come for you on the program germany's main candidates wrap up their election campaigns ahead of sunday's vote in the country. right now out of. french leftist protest in paris a day after president a manual my calling sign his labor reforms into law. is not just me going to the white house it was a be a pretty short conversation the n.b.a. is and the paper picks a fight with donald trump over celebrating his team's victory.

a six part series filmed over five years to plan china's democracy experiment at this time on al-jazeera al-jazeera is there what else do we brits but what schools are that to see what happens next. on the wire where mobile brigade of the seventh street that we didn't hear the movie is now is we want to change people have gone the fear barrier the mission of the national army is the entire point complex and i'm just your stories about telling it from the people's perspective what they think is happening in their culture.
12:31 am
welcome back you're watching al-jazeera news out to take you through the top stories north korea's foreign minister has launched a scathing attack against u.s. president donald trump at the united nations general assembly. turkey's parliament has extended the mandate for its military deployment to iraq and syria in a special session convened in response to the kurdish independence referendum in iraq. and amnesty international says range of images is still being torched in myanmar contradicting the government's statements that military operations have ended. more in our top story now the escalation of the war of words between pyongyang and washington on the address that we had just a couple of hours ago of course by the north korean foreign minister richard is the director of the just security twenty twenty program at the pieces a curate a think tank at the stimson center joins me live now from washington d.c. has been an eventful united nations general assembly and seems to be maybe reflected in a sense that tensions are increasing between north korea and the u.s.
12:32 am
do you think the language we heard in some of these speeches is making compromise more and more difficult. thank you mariam this past week's troubling war of words certainly has the potential to get out of hand and result in a regrettable situation for all parties it would be an understatement to state that the north korean statement earlier today in response to president trump's bellicose remarks on tuesday against his country is highly counterproductive and it is a fundamental misuse of the united nations a central forum for political dialogue and for diplomatic action it's really important that we take some lessons from a very important nuclear agreement with iran just a few years ago that was blessed by the u.n. security council it took years of work hard diplomacy backed up by sanctions this
12:33 am
is the way to go in dealing with a difficult situation that we see on the korean peninsula today why if that president's to the nuclear program in recent history why if if if you know there is a precedent for that is it not being applied to the situation with north korea now . the pressure is being ratcheted up against north korea through a series of un resolutions three in the last several months supported by china russia all fifteen members of the security council with the leadership of the united states and this should be commended this is leading to stronger economic sanctions sanctions that need more time to play out sanctions that can create favorable conditions for a negotiated settlement this is the proper role of the united nations the fly over that recently occurred today by the u.s. military talk of more rocket launches by the north koreans this is certainly not
12:34 am
helping the situation pressures need to be brought down and dialogue needs to commence and this is a proper role for the united nations not what we heard this past week by leaders on many sides so what are the implications of this u.n.g.a. for the global security of oral well let's not forget that it started extremely well a first ever meeting presided over by u.s. president donald trump with one hundred twenty nine world leaders signing on to a political declaration that lends its support to secretary general antonio terraces ongoing u.n. management reform efforts at the same time as i noted the statement by president trump on the subsequent day largely overshadowed the good progress what we saw on monday and in addition to the strong language he used against adversaries of the united states the highly nationalistic statement and tone of the president where he
12:35 am
invoked the word sovereignty on no less than twenty two occasions this has given pause to many u.n. observers and indeed many of the world leaders who gathered in new york this past week. all right thanks very much. as of course all of the pos week but you thank you. syria's foreign minister walid moallem told the un general assembly that he hopes the deescalation zones in his country will help bring about assist sation of hostilities but he said damascus reserves the right to respond to any violation of the zones was in jordan has more from the united nations. the syrian foreign minister walid muallem was defiant in his address before the u.n. general assembly on saturday not only did argue that syria is about to win the six year long civil war against the military and political opposition he also argued
12:36 am
that syria is about to win the war for its reputation on the international stage especially in the face of challenges raised by countries such as the united states then syria has fully eliminated its chemical memory and is enough proof that there is an ill conceived intention to tarnish the real image of the syrian government and the international public and come up with new excuses to continue the aggression against syria in favor of terrorists and their supporters this was the case when the united states blatantly attacked air base claiming that it contained chemical weapons used in the alleged han shaikh hoon attack on syria and of course numerous investigations including those from the un the us and the u.k. have found that syria may well have committed crimes against humanity and committed war crimes against its own people including using sarin gas against people living in college earlier in twenty seventeen

a strong quake has shaken southern mexico just days after a seven point one magnitude quake hit the capital hundreds of people were evacuated from parts of mexico city as the tram essential warning alarms rescue efforts were temporarily suspended the latest quake happened about three hundred sixty kilometers south of the capital causing further damage to already weakened buildings and these are live pictures coming to us at the moment from mexico city whether a coverage is continuing dozens of rescue is there still searching through the rubble of damaged buildings still trying to find survivors under the rubble al-jazeera is heidi cho castro is there and sent us this update. a potentially significant setback. for rescue operations here at eight a.m. local time in mexico city we felt an aftershock that measured six point two on the richter scale that's the woman arius estimate from the u.s. geological survey it was centered seven hundred kilometers from here but it was enough for us to detect some movement to see the street signs swaying and most
12:38 am
significantly is its impact on what's going on behind me that is or was what once was a six story office building that collapsed more than ninety hours ago on tuesday when we felt this aftershock the rescuers had to immediately leap from atop that site they had to abandon it for at least a few minutes and just moments ago returned to continue their work trying to access what they believe are six people who may still be trapped alive beneath that rubble i just spoke with a woman who is hoping desperately that her niece who was trapped on the fourth floor working there as an accountant may still be alive she says that a government official and an engineer recently briefed her saying they made some progress overnight that they were able to tunnel in from out from three directions from the top of the building from the bottom and also now from the side by
12:39 am
accessing the building that is still standing next to this office building she is hoping that what she's being told that there have been signs of life that in fact even food and water has been passed down to some of these potential survivors she is desperately hoping that this is true but again we are now more than ninety hours since this building collapse with each new development people's hearts are jumping with this aftershock to happen again around eight o'clock local time in the morning we saw tears in the eyes of the families each tiny thing or significant thing in this in this instance may be a major setback or maybe a major source of hope as they continue to wait and the minutes tick past. tens of thousands of people are being evacuated from their homes in puerto rico amid fears that a dam will break every rain brought in by hurricane maria has weakened. has weakened the you walk it excuse me the main dam there bosses have been brought in to help
