two leaders are expected to hold a joint news conference any time now we'll take that live when it happens. president trump is working to rally international pressure against north korea and its nuclear and missile programs. you'll be meeting with various generals holbrooke his generals on the situation you know if you. think you're not going to if you want you out you don't work out you don't always works out has to work out. life out of so i was here as kathy novak is there so president trying to give it a warm welcome in south korea how important is that display of friendship between the two countries cathy. well it is certainly being highlighted by both leaders here the fact that this is the first state visit official visit of the u.s. leader in twenty five years donald trump thanked president moon for that welcome
with all the pomp and ceremony that comes with it inspecting the honor guard it also comes with a state dinner that we'll see later tonight and this is all this display as you say of unity and friendship particularly important when it comes to dealing with the threat from north korea of course we know that there have been some differences in approach between these two leaders donald trump has the strong rhetoric talking about fire and fury whereas president moon tends to talk more about engagement and dialogue and donald trump in the past has suggested that it is a policy of appeasement but they both have the same goal and that is to deescalate the tensions here on the korean peninsula and they're highlighting the fact that they must work together president moon thanked donald trump for his leadership when it comes to dealing with the door of korean issue and had some pleasantries going into talks with president trump president moon congratulating donald trump on the
upcoming anniversary of his election and also on his achievements towards making america great again for his part of donald trump who also wanted to talk about trade as he did in japan and he referred to the fact that he understands that south korea will be buying more military equipment and other things from the united states which donald trump says will reduce the trade deficit between south korea and the u.s. which he says will make the u.s. people very happy. on the japan leg of his tour north korea top of the agenda then . i suppose the north is is likely to be watching events in the south pretty closely. indeed in japan here in south korea and on the next stop when donald trump goes to china these are events that are very likely to be watched closely in the north through the state media in north korea has been saying if the united states and its allies continue their hostile acts towards the north
the north korea will continue to build up its what it calls its nuclear sword of justice this visit comes at the same time as a joint naval exercises are being held between the u.s. and south korea that's the kind of thing that often angers north korea and for its part the south korean intelligence says its assessment continues to be that there could be a provocation coming from the north at any time in the form of another missile launch or perhaps another nuclear test all right kathy many thanks didn't exist kathy novak live in so let me just show you where you can see it on the screen now that's where we're expecting the two leaders to come out and brief the press after the meeting as and when that gets underway we'll take it live here on al-jazeera before arriving in seoul president trump offered words of praise to saudi leaders in the effort to crack down on corruption in the last few days saudi princes as well as businessmen been arrested many see that as
a move by the crown prince mohammed bin solomon to consolidate power president trump voiced his support on twitter saying i have great confidence in king solomon of the crown prince they know exactly what they're doing he added some of those that they're harshly treating has been milking their country for years saudi arabia's crown prince for how it is accused iran of committing an act of war by supplying hooty rebels in yemen with a missile that was fired at riyadh it's the latest development amid escalating tensions right across the region saudi air defense forces intercepted the police to missile fired by hooty rebels in yemen on saturday while they've claimed responsibility for that attack saudi. leaders say the weapon was supplied by iran the iran backed forces are now warning that saudi arabia and u.a.e. airports within firing range and could be next that's prompted saudi arabia to cut all land sea and access to yemen an act that the u.n.
fears could further hempen human humanitarian efforts and saudi arabia has warned lebanon that it will be dealt with as a government that has declared war against it lebanon's prime minister. is now in abu dhabi for talks following his resignation in saudi arabia on saturday he's blamed iran and hezbollah asserting strife in the region live out of beirut al-jazeera is in test time is that for us that may have to interrupt you if president trump comes out and begins to speak but we've seen some pretty strong rhetoric from saudi arabia's foreign minister what's been the reaction that to it. indeed some very strong rhetoric and sincere and here in lebanon that that rhetoric could ultimately start turning into q-tip actions now at this stage nobody is suggesting that any kind of violent response will be carried out but we could see saudi arabia impose sanctions of some sort on the lebanese government remember the language here that was used that the lebanese government is being accused of
essentially carrying out or are behaving as a country in conflict with saudi arabia and this of course is designed to put pressure on one of the most powerful blocs within the government here in lebanon and that is hezbollah hezbollah while of course a very powerful armed group here in lebanon it is also a very potent political force as well and of course the basis of mr hariri is resignation prime minister saad hariri is resignation on saturday in which he quite uncharacteristically use very strong language not only describing your iran but also hezbollah and so that leads many political observers here to think that this is. surely but this is about what this crisis is about some going as far as saying that this is being engineered by saudi arabia to create some sort of political strife here in lebanon to try to push this hezbollah block into a corner but as we've been saying some very strong language coming out from the
saudi leadership as this conflict if you will as this crisis continues to escalate right side how really the the i suppose we call him former prime minister now he resigned suddenly on saturday in riyadh it's now in the u.a.e. it's rumored that he will return to lebanon sometime this week what more do we know about what sort of reception will he get. it's a curious case of saad hariri as some have described it here of course he brazil in saudi arabia which in itself was shocking for many here not least the fact that he stepped down from a government which for all intents and purposes appeared to be working we have to remember lebanon was essentially in a political vacuum for two and a half years up until this agreement which was reached around a year ago which saw an ally of hezbollah michel own become president and mr hariri then taking this role of prime minister a job he's held once before before rather and a government that collapsed because of hezbollah since then it appeared that this
government had been working and that they'd been able to pass legislation reform tax reform education law and so on and so forth so this resignation was certainly a surprise the fact that mr hariri remains out of the country certainly raising a lot of eyebrows here saying that saudi arabia is keeping him as you rightly point out we're hearing that mr hariri has left saudi arabia and is now in the united arab emirates a channel that he is the owner of reporting this clearly designed to sort of dispel any rumor that he is being held against his will in saudi arabia as some have put it but if he does return to lebanon there will be a lot of questions for him as to not only why he resigned but just what exactly is going on just many thanks i'll just it was him test time in beirut now to some breaking news reports we told you about an hour ago of a gunman or of gunmen storming a television station in afghanistan according to an eyewitness they entered the
facility after an explosion this is all in the capital kabul some employees were reported to be still inside the building let's go live now to kabul there is jennifer glass is there and can tell us more what exactly happened jennifer. adrian security forces and ambulances are on the scene at shamshad t.v. where that attack is ongoing as you said a number of gunman believed to be inside we do know that a number of those television station employees have been injured we understand we're getting reports of at least one person who has been killed but it is a siege that is ongoing they've shut down all of the roads in that very busy area of town and we're seeing people crouched behind corners because we understand there are some projectiles grenades or rockets being thrown by those gunmen who have barricaded themselves inside that t.v. stations are wagering we've got an ongoing seed situation here in kabul it started
with an explosion outside shamshad t.v. and then gunman went into the television station we do know a number of those employees have been able to get out of the station but it's unclear who exactly is inside and it is adrian a rather large compound it's not only home to the t.v. station but the owner also runs a mind museum next door so there's a lot of a lands next door. as well so there's a lot of land for security forces to cover as they get into that compound who might have been behind that attack such as this and what would the motive be why attack the t.v. station. well we don't know exactly who was behind it we do with there was a tweet from the taliban saying it had nothing to do with the taleban journalists have adrian been under increasing threat here in afghanistan two thousand and sixteen the deadliest year for them so far with thirteen journalists killed but a number of journalists have been killed as well this year two in a a suicide bomb attack in. the center of kabul to kill one hundred fifty people
television stations though are often under serious threat the taleban have threatened one of the major t.v. stations here and there a ploy is travelling with a lot of security and a lot of caution journalists can be intimidated by strong men here they can be attacked by people especially in the provinces so journalists are very cautious here we're still waiting to see if anyone claims responsibility for this attack but of course right now it's still ongoing jonathan many thanks live in kabul ahead of that news conference that we're expecting from president trying we'll get a weather update next then. for refugees who are still lost inside that tension center. happy we'll be right back. by the skyline of asian harbor or off the coast of the italian riviera.

for honoring us with the invitation to be here today and for the incredibly warm welcome and magnificent ceremony you have given us during our first trip to the very beautiful city of so thank you very much malani and i had a wonderful time having tea with you and first lady kim thank you. at the beautiful blue house which i've heard so much about and now get to visit and see first and. we're looking forward to joining you for dinner this evening and we have much to discuss today the president and i had an opportunity to talk about a range of vital economic and security matters including our trade relationship and our joint efforts to solve north korea's grave nuclear threat to south korea and indeed the entire world this is a world wide problem the republic of korea is more than
a longstanding ally of the united states we are partners and friends who have fought side by side in a war and really worked very hard and prospered toward a great and lasting peace i feel confident that we'll be able to reach a free fair and we supercold trade deal as we renegotiate our current five year old trade document we cannot allow north korea to threaten all that we have built and we've built it very much together and we're very very proud of it also together. but all that we've built in the decades since our soldiers sacrifice side by side in the struggle for freedom our alliance is more important than ever to peace and security on the korean peninsula and across the indonesia pacific region that is why vice president pence secretary of state telus and who's with us today and
secretary of defense matters who was here just a short time ago have all traveled to so all in the first year of my administration it was very important to me that they did north korea stick six test of a nuclear device and its missile launches are a threat not only to the people of south korea but to the people all across our globe we will together confront north korea's actions and prevent the north korean dictator from threatening millions of innocent lives he is indeed threatening millions and millions of lives so needlessly north korea is a worldwide threat that requires worldwide action we call on every responsible nation including china and russia to demand that the north korean regime end its nuclear weapons and its missile programs and live in peace
as the south korean people know so well it's time to act with urgency and with great determination all nations must implement u.n. security council regulations and cease trade and business entirely with north korea it is unacceptable that nations would help to warm and finance this increasingly dangerous regime as we work together to resolve this problem using all available tools short of military action. the united states stands prepared to defend itself and its allies using the full range of our unmatched military capabilities if need be the crucial u.s. security partnership with south korea is just one aspect of our enduring alliance
we also shared deep partnerships on a range of issues from cultural exchange to cutting edge advances in science and medicine and a very important issue of trade currently we are looking at ways of improving our economic relationship i would like to thank president moon for instructing his trade negotiators to work closely with us to quickly pursue a much better deal a deal that frankly has been quite unsuccessful and not very good for the united states in the more than six decades since we signed our mutual defense treaty our alliance has grown stronger and deeper our two nations symbolize what independent countries can accomplish when they serve the interests of their people respect the sovereignty of their neighbors and uphold the rule of law imagine the amazing possibilities for a korean peninsula liberated from the threat of nuclear weapons were all koreans
could enjoy the blessings of liberty and the prosperity that you have achieved right here in south korea i also want to congratulate president moon and the south korean people on hosting the winter olympics this upcoming february it will be a truly spectacular event. mr president i want to thank you first lady can. and i mean it was just so special today the ceremony was so beautiful we very much thank you for it together our two nations will handle threats to peace and security stand up to those who would threaten our freedom and boldly seize the incredible opportunities for a better brighter and more prosperous tomorrow in good times and bad in moments of great hardship and great success our two nations can always count on the close
