war on drugs in the philippines. saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin solomon is accusing iran of what could be an act of war by supplying hooty rebels in yemen with a missile that was fired at riyadh it's the latest developments of escalating tension in the region saudi air defense forces intercepted the ballistic missile on saturday although the who the rebels claimed responsibility saudi leaders say the weapon was supplied by iran iran back to it is a warning that saudi and u.a.e. airports are now within firing range and could be the next targets saudi arabia is also taking aim at lebanon its warning that it will be dealt with as a government that has declared war against riyadh lebanon's prime minister saad al holy be blamed iran and hizbollah for destabilizing the region hariri who resigned
2:03 pm
while in riyadh on saturday has now arrived in abu dhabi for talks from the honda who's in beirut. some analysts are even saying that these statements by saudi officials a number of saudi officials are unprecedented and they're analyzing this as a declaration of war against eleven on telling lebanon lebanese leaders need to choose between peace or terror in other words telling them not to cooperate or deal with hezbollah now hezbollah of course is a party that has an armed wing its arms has always been a source of contention in lebanon its forces are fighting alongside the syrian president bashar al assad but hezbollah is also a political party it has members in government it has members in parliament it has allies it has supporters here so telling lebanese leaders to choose between a terror and. so people are concerned and some statements are even. saying there
2:04 pm
are those who will stop hezbollah and make them return to the caves of southern lebanon so very tough rhetoric in fact threatening lebanon but not saying or stopping short of saying what action they are going to take it is clear that saudi arabia is not going to accept hezbollah in the government but what else are they going to ask for this crisis to be resolved are they going to ask for hezbollah's arms to be. this armed that is definitely not going to happen and hezbollah is not going to accept that. the associated press is reporting that saudi arabia has barred yemen's president along with his sons ministers and military officials from returning home yemen says the ban was prompted by hostility between president hadi and the united arab emirates the u.a.e. has been playing a major role in the fight against the rebels hardy and much of his government have been in the saudi capital riyadh since the war in yemen began in twenty fifteen. donald trump says the u.s. and its allies are prepared to use military action against north korea but he's
2:05 pm
open to the go see asians to end pyongyang's nuclear weapons program trump has been meeting south korea's leader in seoul where he said the two men were on the same page on north korea he's on the second leg of his maiden tour of asia. 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 arm 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. well the united states has strong sanctions on north korea and i think it will have
2:06 pm
an effective impact and with china joining the united states it will bring force to the sanctions on north korea with all these international diplomatic policies i think when there are changes being made it will bring north korea back to the negotiating table lived out of the berkeley is. both presidents say that they're on the same page when it comes to north korea but. it seems in public yes they are you would have said before this visit that they were not because president moon is very much a man who's in favor of dialogue and we've all heard president trump's rhetoric of fire and fury and threatening to totally destroy north korea it was a more measured tone by president trump to today i think it was a relief to the south koreans they were seeking reassurances that this conflict this potential conflict was not going to be pushed over the edge and they very concerned about how his visit would be viewed in the north as it happened in fact
2:07 pm
perhaps you know the some of the strongest words came from president moon when he said that now is not the time for negotiating they feel that they have to wait until sanctions take hold take a bite and then bring them to the table but but president trump on the other hand mark measured tone he was suggesting that p.r. nyang should come to the table and make a deal he said there has been some progress on that but he he won't elaborate so are encouraging signs i think in seoul today all around also he talked about security he talked about trade he's after all a businessman he promised more jobs when he was going to be elected which is actually one year on wednesday one year ago on wednesday and he's done some deals now of the south koreans he said that they're going to spend billions of dollars on american military hardware to reinforce their forces so all in all a good day we haven't heard much from north of the border save one statement saying that north korea reaffirmed its nuclear program and would bolster the nuclear
2:08 pm
program in what it's called sort of justice so that's all we've had rhetoric no action so so far so good for president transfers day in south korea tony many thanks tony bertie there live in seoul. a siege of a t.v. station in the afghan capital kabul has come to an end government has stormed the building and taken it over after an explosion a security guard is reported to been killed the station has now resumed broadcasting. the emir of kuwait has written a letter to parliament calling for unity in the country in the face of current tension in the region the government of kuwait resigned last week let's take you live now to kuwait city al-jazeera as the tash are going to aim is tell us more about this letter why it was written that tasha. one member of parliament tells al-jazeera that we will defend kuwait with our lives
2:09 pm
and that we support all efforts to preserve kuwait security the emir's message to parliament comes amidst a breakneck pace of developments in the region it also comes less than two weeks after the government here in kuwait was dissolved a new government is in the process of forming this was a close meeting it happened at about twelve thirty local time thirty eight of fifty members of parliament were there the emir had met privately with the speaker of the parliament and handle livered this letter we're told that is not uncommon that has happened previously but the message in this letter and the message from the emir is one of unity recognize recognition that there is a dangerous environment in the region and the need for stability also minister sorry a member of parliament told al jazeera that there were calls to. preserve the internal
2:10 pm
stability of the country and to stand behind whatever security measures kuwait may take of course there was no elaboration on exactly what those measures may be on october thirtieth the prime minister and the government submitted their resignation and since then the emir has asked the prime minister to agree to come back and form a new government one is in the process of being formed no timeline on when that will happen but you also have to look at this in the bigger picture this also may be a.q. kuwait has been a mediator in the gulf cooperation. council crisis it also may be a cue to the rest of the region to come together and unify especially many thanks to sasha going to be reporting live from kuwait city. we're going to weather update next here on al-jazeera then with climate change causing more floods and storms the netherlands is showing how prevention is better than a cure plus. i'm just feeling i'm saving nine lives right now so. yes i

2:14 pm
ballistic missile on saturday and saudi arabia says that lebanon will be dealt with as a government that's declared war against the country lebanon's prime minister saad al-hadi blamed iran and his ball of destabilizing the region already resigned while in riyadh on saturday he's now in the united arab emirates for talks with donald trump says the u.s. and its allies are prepared to use military action against north korea but he's open to negotiations to end pyongyang's nuclear weapons program trump has been discussing the issue with south korea's leader in seoul. the united nations has called for an end to what it calls a catastrophic aid blockade on yemen fuel prices increased by over sixty percent and cooking gas prices doubled after saudi arabia cut all aid access to the country the u.n. says it's looking at whether the closure constitutes unlawful collective punishment diplomatic editor james bays reports. the humanitarian situation in yemen is one of
2:15 pm
the grey vista in the world it's so bad a child under the age of five dies in the country every ten minutes from causes that should be preventable twenty million people out of a population estimated at twenty seven million are in need of humanitarian assistance but it appears for now all international aid is being cut saudi arabia has announced it's completely blockading the country cutting all air sea and land links its reaction to a missile fired towards riyadh by the who these who control a large part of yemen including the capital sanaa to u.n. flights into the country have already been blocked and we're trying to see whether we can get our normal access restored and we're hopeful that we will be able to continue our normal operations we once more. underscore to all parties the need for regular humanitarian access to all parts of yemen that are in need
2:16 pm
when the u.n. says it's hopeful its aid can soon resume that's only based on the fact that the saudis current blockade is said to be temporary when you look at the words the u.n. is using it's clear they're treading carefully the reality is that saudi arabia has been making restrictions on the aid medicine and food allowed into yemen for years after facing turmoil conflict and an ongoing cholera epidemic the conditions in yemen can only be described as dire and they look set to worsen even further jamesburg jazeera at the united nations. zimbabwe's president robert mugabe has fired his deputy emerson and non-god decision removes one of the leading contenders to become his successor his wife grace now appears to be the front runner ninety three year old has been president of zimbabwe for nearly forty years now let's take
2:17 pm

2:18 pm
could be an indication that he did indeed seem to be a threat to the first family the mugabe is and they clearly wanted him out what reason did mugabe gives. people reacted to the news. on the streets of the capital harare it's business as usual people have gone to work the streets are busy i have to be honest a lot of people did suspect that something was going to happen i mean for months a lot of people knew that it was a man and god had fallen out with the prism of god the and his wife grace in particular what surprised people i suppose was the fact that he was fired so quickly and people waking up to news who and reading the newspapers had some idea of why he was fired this is the state run newspaper the herald events that he was disloyal and yet to be removed from the party one of the privately owned newspapers is supposed looking ahead towards what could happen in the future one could be a purge is expected in this particular column it's saying that some of us seniors

2:26 pm
