1:02 pm
he'll be laid to rest. and on time hamas now have the latest post news including argentina on the verge of missing the first world cup nine hundred seventy after failing to win again and caught a fine. our top story the nobel peace prize has just been awarded to the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons the announcement came in the last hour. the norwegian nobel committee has decided to award the nobel peace prize for twenty seventeen to the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons i can. the organization is receiving the award for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic
1:03 pm
humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its groundbreaking efforts to achieve a treaty based probation on such weapons live now to washington diplomatic out of the james bay is james was this a surprise. i think it's always a surprise the award of the nobel peace prize they do not tell you who they are debating they do not tell you who their nominations are and so we always get a figure or an organization announced this organization is a group of civil society organizations that has grown since it was set up in two thousand and seven four hundred sixty eight partner organizations now in over one hundred countries and the whole effort is an effort to try and ban nuclear
1:04 pm
weapons and they've achieved quite a bit obviously we're nowhere near banning nuclear weapons and the most powerful countries in the world are opposed to that but they have managed to get a nuclear weapon ban treaty in place open for signature when the world leaders arrived in new york as they normally do at the end of september and fifty three countries have now signed that treaty but as i say the most important part most powerful countries in the world particularly the five permanent members of the u.n. security council have not signed i think they believe that for their own defense and the taron purposes they're not going to sign this treaty and don't believe they should sign this treaty nevertheless this has been welcomed the award by the executive secretary of i can bitterest fin this is what she had to say the treaty is meant to make it harder to justify nuclear weapons to make it uncomfortable for
1:05 pm
states to continue with the status quo to put more pressure on that isn't going to happen overnight of course but it's a huge boost to all the people the head of worth on this issue for a very long time the new generations that are mobilizing around this issue through our campaign and other work. it's a huge signal that this is worthy to work on and this is something that is needed and it's appreciated it. clearly james the nobel committee and indeed i can they're sending a very strong signal but specifically to do with the trumpet ministration how predisposed would they be to hear the message i think it's interesting to see some of the things that have been said recently by beatrice finch she's the executive secretary of i can it's not clear whether she's the person or go and collect the nobel peace prize let me just give you a few comments by looking at her twitter feed and this was i think in response to
1:06 pm
what may have been said by the secretary of state rex tillerson by donald trump in the last twenty four hours she tweeted donald trump is a moron so if she does pick up the nobel peace prize if we get unguarded language like that it could be particularly unusual speech this nobel award not specifically to do with the trumpet ministration but given the growing crisis with north korea a nuclear crisis on the korean peninsula and the fact that the u.s. president is signaling that he may pull out of the iran nuclear deal the world facing two similar ten years nuclear emergency is and i think the timing of this award by the nobel committee given that is not a coincidence james many thanks torch relay for i'm sure let's get more on that for you joining us live on skype as henrik or doll director of the peace research institute in or slow henry cordell given the optics of where we are as of today
1:07 pm
when it comes to nuclear aspirations the nuclear debate which countries do you think will really listen to this and which countries won't absorb the central key message. first of all i would like to say that we're extremely happy to see the price of going to the abolition campaign for nuclear weapons i think this is going to we have a process now within the un a lot of countries have signed up more than fifty countries so the treaty will come into effect i think this crisis also putting a lot of pressure on the states that have so far decided to stand on the sidelines including all the major countries and obviously all the nuclear powers but how do you think crucially the united states north korea iran all the nuclear powers pakistan india the u.k. france how will they react. they will most likely to react negatively obviously there is no sign that this campaign will immediately lead to any change
1:08 pm
in policies in these countries what we can hope for is that this campaign will lead to us of increasing normal development within the fuels field of nuclear weapons just as previous crisis to to the to both biological and chemical weapons to and mines and cluster munitions have led to a larger international complains and to be increasing stigma in using such weapons what we hope is is also that this is sending a clear signal to stay simple now in dire an agreement and of course also to north korea underlining the importance of international negotiations and the international legal frameworks for the control. of the fight for evolution ok you've touched on two of the biggest issues there iran and north korea will come into north korea in just a moment firstly iran what do you want the trumpet ministration to do when it comes
1:09 pm
to decertifying or not its place in the one plus six arrangement with tehran. what was reopened is of course that this price is going to strengthen the forces that would like to maintain the agreement and of course the the us is the state now that tests contributed to two brings up uncertainty is into that game but we do hope that the trumpet of the statement will reconsider its position and contributes to the agreement and and this has implications again also for the signals that were sending north korea and as to those implications for north korea what's the knock on effect here because if the one plus six becomes one plus five are you washington pulls the plug on its involvement some people are saying well the one plus five carries on as is because iran has stayed true to the strictures of the deal the
1:10 pm
deal was you reduce nuclear enrichment by ninety eight percent tehran has done that so the signal the distilled signal to pyongyang from that's a question then becomes what precisely. the importance of a holding iran agreement is precisely that and there is no reason why it shouldn't be possible to uphold the agreement even if the us should decide to leave it the problem is of course what kind of signals that is sending to north korea and the mixed signals coming out of the u.s. and this region now as to whether or not the u.s. would be able in to negotiate and engage in diplomatic discussions with north korea henrich that in all slip thank you very much well russia says it hopes the u.s. will make a quote balanced decision on whether to remain engaged in the landmark international deal to curb iran's nuclear program as we've just been hearing donald trump is
1:11 pm
accusing iran of not living up to the spirits of the deal that goes back to twenty fifteen and he is expected to refuse to endorse it as show jeweled next week. we must not allow iran to attain to obtain nuclear weapons the iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence bloodshed and chaos across the middle east that is why we must put an end to iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions they have not lived up to the spirit of their agreement well the story really something of a jigsaw for you statement to cool him with more now from washington. just saw twenty four hours ago secretary of defense jim mattis tell the u.s. congress that he thinks that it's in the u.s. national security interest to stay in the iran deal and at the time that many people thought he was speaking to an audience of one president donald trump but if you really look back in now with this reporting that president may have found what
1:12 pm
he sees as a loophole where he can decertify but the not push congress to reimpose sanctions there is satisfying his base mattis is a key voice he is respected on capitol hill and you're starting to see some republicans especially within the leadership say basically it will quote they uses the toothpaste is always an overt out of the bottle the money has been given to iran the sanctions have been lifted if they were to reimpose sanction they know the allies would blame them for and walked away from the nuclear deal and it's not at all clear that the allies would follow suit and which would mean the same sions were somewhat toothless so it's not confirmed that the republicans will go along but it's also important to point out when ever things go in the congress anything could happen lobby matters so you will be faced with a choice between the pro israeli government lobby and all of the l. eyes and other countries like china and russia who said we signed this deal we're not renegotiating so there will be pressure on congress not to mention the fact that the trump administration cannot point to any evidence that iran isn't living
1:13 pm
up to their part of the deal the i.a.e.a. has said they're in one hundred percent compliance to get around that the trump administration keeps saying but the agreement said that iran would and this is important they say quote the deal they said positively contribute to regional and international peace and security the deal does the agreement doesn't say that it doesn't say iran will contribute it says the agreement will contribute they can't quite square that peg when you ask them about it so there might have a shaky argument but if they do this that it goes to congress to decide if they scuttle the deal at least from a u.s. perspective. those were news comment and analysis still to come for you here on the news hour including new stories killing and injuring children in the war in yemen the u.n. criticizes both the saudi led coalition and the rebels plus. this vote is more than a presidential possession. the high life. in central park new york coming up i'll tell you which president. and the sports news with son
1:14 pm
a football milestone for india as they host a fever tournament for the first time. the associated press is today reporting that the u.s. military is halting some joint exercises with its gulf allies over the ongoing diplomatic crisis targeting catto a u.s. central command spokesman has been quoted as saying we are opting out of some military exercises out of respect for the concept of inclusiveness and shared regional interests will continue to encourage all partners to work together toward the sort of common solutions that enable security and stability in the region joining us now here in the studio. analyst at the doha institute arab center for research and policy studies you met with people very close to mattis general mattis mad dog matters what were they saying to you but actually they said that. the
1:15 pm
station was not really happy when the president actually tried to mediate between especially between their. man and i mean of qatar during their famous phone call and he did not the president i'm talking to he did not actually have. the sort of. that he was expecting actually the sort of flexibility that he was expecting from his closest allies here we are talking about mohammed bin so man and mamma desired that all of of up. i think the president was quite. quite upset by the lack of responsiveness by these two allies and he wanted very much actually as he promised during the press conference with the emir of kuwait when he was actually trying to do give the impression that if he get involved directly personally and this this crisis he would be sold and get overnight that did not have been i think
1:16 pm
under president discovered the limits of his part in this and this crisis was the difference between opting out and abdicating your responsibilities if you will the u.s. administration well i think. and i think they like this this actually is seeing some sort of i think you have the president is. came to the conclusion of his closest advisers because you know i mean that the position of the president has shifted throughout the crisis from the very beginning until now at the very beginning he was closer to the saudis and the monarchies concerning this crisis and you remember his famous tweets at that time today i think he came to the conclusion actually that he's having too many crises in the korean peninsula he's having this crisis now developing with iran we're still expecting the president today i mean to come up with an argument on the nuclear deal with iran and we have also the war on
1:17 pm
. the crisis actually is is another crisis for him which is which might actually harm but it has a force to deal with with all these things so i think he'll. explain is actually why he he came to the conclusion that if we solve this crisis. it would serve the interests of the united states and its efforts to deal with all these issues officially obviously believes this is totally and utterly manufactured it is a fake crosses given the saudi reaction to donald trump being in riyadh before the crisis kicked off well the saudis now take this as an opportunity to exert more leverage within the loyalties that have exposed themselves within the g.c.c. there's been a through i think that as you said even the u.s. officers now they don't really understand what this crisis is really about and this is something that i was personally taught because since qatar signed memorandum of
1:18 pm
understanding with qatar the visit of secretary of state their lives son. actually there was nothing else to talk about because this was the main issue that was raised against qatar by the blockade in cantonese that is supporting terrorism and now qatar has signed them on the understanding with the americans whereas the other parties are poor percodan can't. has not have not done that. so i think. in many way that in fact it's manufactured and it's maybe it's not about that it's about. finishing some unfinished business from the time of the arab spring and i supported key point of view no sense when i think i supported the revolutions absolutely but is this donald trump reacting to what mattis is telling him is matters driving this or is it donald trump just vocalizing or is his other advisors well i think since he got this in the into this i think he started to take things
1:19 pm
personally that i promised to solve this crisis and he said that i can do it over the phone but he could then they never actually this is something that i think upset him to an extent and now also there is something else here we have seen thing sell mine yesterday visiting more school and here we are seeing somehow the saudis may be winning up to the russians that is something the americans i mean they might not like that very much because if it shows that says the saudis could not get what they wanted from the americans on the qatar crisis and on the case with qatar the are actually trying to reach out to those who are very much against the interests of the united states and the entire region don't forget that americans were not were not really a pleased by the visit by said i mean to the gulf region in order to try to with it in this crisis so i think that complicate things in my opinion rather than. the
1:20 pm
other we are ok thank you very much thank you. both sides in the conflict in yemen are being strongly criticized in the united nations annual report on children and conflict the saudi arabia look coalition and who see rebels jointly accused of killing and maiming yemeni children although the u.n. also says coalition forces have taken action to improve child protection mike hanna has more now from u.n. headquarters in new york. the report focuses on children in conflict across the globe in countries ranging from afghanistan to colombia to syria mali myanmar and war the list itself showing how widespread the problem is of children caught up in or recruited to armed action there were three thousand five hundred twelve child casualties in afghanistan alone the highest recorded in one country and in yemen a total of one thousand three hundred and forty child casualties were recorded of which the report says the saudi led military coalition was responsible for six
1:21 pm
hundred and eighty three in addition the coalition is held accountable for the destruction of a large number of schools and hospitals. the saudi led coalition was originally named in the two thousand and thirteen blacklist as well but was controversially removed by the then secretary general ban ki-moon pending a review that was never completed u.n. aides confirmed this happened after the saudi government had threatened to withdraw its funding to the united nations we are told the current secretary general carefully vetted personally and endorsers this report this year there's a change in the format of the report an x one the black list which contains the names of the perpetrators has been divided into two sections section a contains the names of nations and non-state actors guilty of acts against children but those that have been subsequently found to have attempted to improve the protection of children during the reporting period have been moved into section b.
1:22 pm
the saudi led military coalition is in this category along with the afghan national police and the somali national army this may not be enough to avert what is likely to be strong protest from the saudi government in coming hours mike hanna al-jazeera united nations. joining us here on the news hakim smadi he's the editor of the yemen post he joins us from the capital sana'a hakeem must madi what effect what impact of the un efforts had on the ground very little as of now over the last forty eight hours seventeen civilians have been killed among them children it will mean so very little effect apologise for that we've lost that skype line to sun i will try and go back to if we can before the end of this program tell you what i think we've got back
1:23 pm
to guess there let's give it one more go hakeem must marry a speech it'll be here in the studio in doha just go with us bear with us here we're having some problems with the skype line to you but we'll carry on our conversation you were explaining to us what impact if any these u.n. moves have had on the ground. as of an hour at least seventeen civilians have been killed among them actually. over the last forty eight hours very little effect. has took place because of this you have no stats yes saudis blacklisted but yemenis want to see something in action rather than words they are see believe dr levy heaviest price of seventy four and the problem is the world is ignoring that word a lot yet not follow words have been earth for the last two and a half years in yemen and those words have resulted in over twelve thousand
1:24 pm
civilians be killed only by the airstrikes in the clashes a little lower than those who were children who were killed by the siege children. who died because of hunger children who died because of the epidemic of course so there are many ways children could die and words will not yet up especially when it comes to yemen that we. start where it is disastrous and if your only can only lead to the worst we're looking at some pictures that take us back maybe six eight weeks it looks absolutely appalling i mean there may be one or two of the casualties in this war optimism it would feel has gone hope it feels has gone as well. when you know all the way down there's no way to go on the out so yes people are hopeless yes people are waiting to eventually. get justice for their loved ones but they get. this war needs to and it's useless right
1:25 pm
now we have an eighteen months both sides have stalled thought no military improvement for both sides so it's clear that this war cannot be solved militarily so all sides should give people a chance to survive give peace a chance we tried to negotiate and the u.n. and should have a stronger role especially the gulf nations have a stronger role and put it you have back i say sure ok we'll leave it there mari there in sana'a thank you very much. one of the most prominent leaders to rest. was iraqi president from two thousand and five to twenty four he was widely respected as a mediator between iraq's. communities. and a hospital in germany. where the funeral is taking place clearly
1:26 pm
a day of reflection and pausing for thought how will he be remembered. one of the. kurds many of the people. they want to give.
1:27 pm
this referendum. i think will be one of certainly continue on the path that the kurds are taking at the moment even though it has to be said that in the rift run up to the referendum there was a certain faction in his. party one that he has created with others of his childhood friends there was. the timing of the river and i'm thinking that was the moment view of the regional situation it was better. but then at the end of the day the old rallied behind
1:28 pm
the vote and everybody sort of but in the city for example the turnout was among the lowest. about fifty five percent and i think you will have those the helm of his party now trying to continue with his message a message that he has always been the man who could stand up to his adversary. and he was always the man who would speak out even sometimes against certain stances taken by the kurds. thanks very much. now in a few moments we'll have the very latest weather for you with rob but also still ahead here on al-jazeera. i'm having a tough night appointing a refugee trying to enter in that area find out why thousands of people are fleeing the democratic republic of congo and coming up. also had the fallout from catalonia

1:32 pm
welcome back you're watching al-jazeera news arpita dobby in doha with a program today our top stories the nobel peace prize has been awarded to the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons the panel in oslo praised the group for working to prohibit use of the weapons it comes amid rising tensions of course around north korea's nuclear program. russia says it hopes the u.s. will make a quote balanced decision on whether to remain engaged in the landmark international deal to curb iran's nuclear ambitions president on the trump has accused iran of not living up to the spirit of the twenty fifteen. and the associated press is
1:33 pm
reporting that the u.s. is halting some joint military exercises with gulf allies over the ongoing diplomatic crisis targeting cattle u.s. central command says it's encouraging all partners to work together for the security and the stability of the entire region. let's get more now on comments about the iranian nuclear deal modules where he joins us now on set he is an associate professor of contemporary history of the middle east at cattle university what do you think donald trump's about to do and why i think donald trump let's go back a little bit to his campaign. the time he was working his campaign that he formed a team which basically the main task for that team is to look at to look at the options and given the president what are the options to word the nuclear the the time he went to the white house this team came with time to the white house and are working far away from department of state and printed on and the cia so basically
1:34 pm
he has his team who are advising him on how to deal with the nuclear issue what happened in the. last two months that iran has this did two of his missiles two thousand kilometers and that is the missiles which basically led to. impose sanctions on iran by the. administration so after that explain that iranian test. did start seriously to look at the options and to have measures against iran and i think why does he say however just interrupt you for a second why does donald trump say it's an embarrassment to the united states no one else involved in that equation of one plus six says we are embarrassed by it not anyone else who signed up to the deal three years ago two reasons one he is not convinced that the united states had to be part of this deed and he believed that. barack obama was not in a good shape to enter the deal and that part of and the mining of barack obama
1:35 pm
foreign policy that's part of this campaign the second reason. let's remember his his his following the republican rhetoric against iran so basically he is also more closed to the israeli rhetoric toward iran so basically those two reasons makes us believe that he's basically wanted to make something serious or to take see the systems throughout the nuclear the other potential consequences to him pulling out of this deal even if even if congress says yes we will draw and then everyone else involved in the deal as it stands at the moment says yes we will accept that or the potential consequences in pyongyang because it pyongyang wants to be engaged in a dialogue north korea kim jong il and might then turn around and say well hang on why should we talk to you because we can't trust you because you signed up to this deal and now you're walking away that's what he said to mr nation three weeks ago that you are giving a bad signal to north korea not to be engaged with us from the department of state
1:36 pm
so basically look this is that a bilateral deep in. it's not a bilateral it's not from between washington and tehran this is international deal and even if the united states decided to woodrow this this we will have one indicator the united states have another measure want to take it against iran and basically taking iran to the first circle of being a rogue state and being demonized iran more and more before international community it's a bit let's not forget that the maximum other countries want from the from the nuclear deal which is ten years until two thousand and twenty five is actually to openly. open the door before more about some details this is what. announced in the united nations so the others are convinced that is an amazing option we should not miss it does the deal live or die on what mr trump does very soon even if congress says yes we support you and we walk away to know this will add more complication to the
1:37 pm
implementation of the deal which will cause more problems to the iranian government and make it difficult to deliver to its people this is to improve iranian economy and if. it is state imposed sanctions this will make the job of honey very difficult ok we have to give them a job where we thank you so much later. the united nations coordinator for emergency relief says the lack of access to me in ma is quote unacceptable more than half a million range of muslims have escaped violence in the northern state of rakhine since late august mark local taxes refugees a dying on the way to bangladesh this is not just the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world right now as of today it's also. one of the most heart rending. so i met and eleven year old boy in a unicef therapeutic feeding center he was cradling in his arms his severely
1:38 pm
acutely malnourished two and a half year old sister his mother the boy and the boy's four siblings had set off on a journey lasting i think nine days fleeing violence and the burning of their village the mother died on the journey. missile boy is now in so much force a feelings. ok listing my colleague mohammed june who's at the coup to prolong refugee camp in cox's bazar across the border in bangladesh mohammed we know the stage where there are more. from rakhine state inside bangladesh than there all left in me and. peter if we're not at that stage yet it certainly seems as though we will be soon it's hard to gauge the numbers because there are still according to aid workers thousands possibly tens of
1:39 pm
thousands that are trying to leave me and mark that are coming in daily every other day i can tell you that the conditions that we're seeing in the camps that we visited are among the worst that i have ever witnessed reporting on refugee crises this is seemingly on ending misery on an almost unfathomable scale now everybody that we've spoken with all the refugees be they recent arrivals who have gotten here in the past few days or if they have come in the last few months they all say that there is no way that they would feel safe trying to go back to me and more trying to return to iraq and this is something that we've been asking you when officials and other aid workers about it keeps coming up there are bangladesh government officials that have met with me and more government officials they are trying to create some sort of mechanism by which. refugees could possibly return to rock on but this is
1:40 pm
a process that is going to be riddled with complications and the refugees that we speak with say they don't want to return they didn't want to leave home in the first place they had to leave because they feared for their lives they were under attack by the military but we've heard so many horrific tales. women that say that they encountered rape we met an eighteen year old boy today that told us that that man or army aligned him and several other relatives up in his village shop him he narrowly escaped with his live people shot with three bullets and then got medical care and came here we've heard brutal stories one after one after another and all the refugees say there is no way that they could go back at a time like this they are convinced that if they even were to attempt to go back that their lives would end in a very brutal way peter mohammed thanks very much. top story in europe
1:41 pm
this the parliament in catalonia will meet on monday in defiance of a court injunction and a done by the authorities in the truth need to say they'll make a decision on independence the speaker of castle in his palm and says he's funny central government has put freedom of expression in danger. this is an act of extreme seriousness because it contains the freedom of expression of members of catalonia parliament this shows the total incapacity of the spanish government to resolve political problems in a political way we repeat what we've always said that we will not allow the parliament to be censored. meanwhile catalonians police chief has walked free from court after attending a hearing in the spanish capital madrid joseph repairer was accused of sedition along with three other suspects he's being blamed for failing to protect spanish national police from protesters before the succession referendum on sunday let's go live now to barcelona and our correspondent. clearly the imagery of that very
1:42 pm
strong a police chief in the dock. indeed and by no means is this line of investigation over for mr but instead what it has indicated is that. he has not had any question measures applied to him which would have involved removal of his passport or even detention but so far they have left him all three but he's still not out of that dark as you mentioned there peter but still the entry continues to go on and there are questions now whether parliament will actually the parliament would meet on monday as well these are questions that are going to be settled later on on friday by the governing body of the. parliament also what has been coming out recently just in the past hour as well is that the president of catalonia which of wanton self has
1:43 pm
said that he wants to address parliament on choose day again this is something that has to be formalized by the governing body but it's also indicating just how the. the lines of changing for them as well the president's party itself has already been out on the airwaves this morning addressing. various media outlets here in catalonia that perhaps now is not the right time for independence to be declared and i think also what's pushing that on is just to see the economic reactions from two of catalonia is biggest banks on thursday already making moves to move their legal entities outside of the region itself again this morning there was another consideration by a major catalan company for they share the maker of sparkling wine that they would consider also moving out of the region itself as well so all of these are very important sounders for exactly how big businesses in this region are reacting to
1:44 pm
the potential instability that an abrupt secession would. play itself out here and again from the president's ruling party they are saying that they do not want to provoke a situation of independence if it is going to have any irrepairable problems and issues certainly a disaster they think it might be to do that not just for the region for the country and also there and we've lost the line there to go but we did get enough time to get a sense of where that escalating crisis is heading next we move on to the refugee crisis in central africa about four hundred thousand people have fled fighting in burundi to the democratic republic of congo in the past two years now the exodus followed burundi's president announcing he would run for a third term our reporter malcolm webb reports now from a refugee camp in the d.r. c first however is that a transit center in north and zambia. doesn't know if his
1:45 pm
