5:04 pm
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 disarmed for as well as to be this armed that is definitely not going to happen and hezbollah is not going to accept that on the hand that would deem is in the rainy anomalous the middle east and he says there's no evidence the missile that was five from yemen and saudi came from iran. the yemenis they have very substantial stockpiles of ballistic missiles dating back from the one nine hundred eighty s. and it's very easy for them to modify these missiles with a view to hitting targets deep inside saudi arabia and contrary to what saudi military officials have been saying in the past forty eight hours or so this was not a long range ballistic missile this was a mid range ballistic missiles that had been modified and also contrary to what they've been saying this was not intercepted these missiles as i said some of them date back from the one nine hundred eighty s. some of them were supplied by iraq in the mid to late one nine hundred eighty s. and and some by the former soviet union yemen is awash with weapons you can't

5:06 pm
america's military capability 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 south korean president moon jay in said the time was too early to talk to the north but promised a bright future if it gave up its nuclear and missile programs. of the united states has strong sanctions on north korea and i think it will have 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 trump is the first u.s. president in twenty five years to be treated to a state visit but the first since ronald reagan not to visit the demilitarized zone

5:23 pm
and that can be done in an integrated ways so you can choose for a concrete wall but you also can choose for. a landscape in the shape of a levee with cycling on top of it and that's that's an end in quality but it's also creating more flexibility. the netherlands was forced to address is geographic weakness in the one nine hundred fifty three when a huge storm pushed the north sea inland nearly two thousand people died they realized they had to do something enormous to protect the entire dutch seaboard this giant barrier is the first line of defense for rotterdam it's what the dutch a full forty years after the great flood of nine hundred fifty three to complete the infrastructure necessary to keep the north sea out of the netherlands and of course river in rotterdam every day some of the projects are going on of course it's all underpinned by a belief that you have to work with the water rather than against it and of course the political will to make it happen. of stream in rotterdam the chinese are

5:25 pm
opportunities also climate change brings up and we can see the value for our environment our people but also to me to many people the evidence of twenty seventeen is that the terrifying prospect of the sea taking over is beginning to come true the better news is that the duchess figured out at least some of the answers and very many others are listening to lawrence lee al jazeera role to them . russia is holding low key events to mark a century since the one nine hundred seventeen bolshevik revolution that's when the bolsheviks stormed the winter palace knysna petersburg president vladimir putin and his government are reluctant to celebrate an armed uprising which launched seventy years of communist rule. mexico has too many street dogs repeated sterilization campaigns have not been able to fix the problem but now comes a radical new idea john ahmann explains. it's the end of another trip home

5:30 pm
noisy place so it's a noisy children's library and we encourage children to express themselves however they feel we believe in learning through play and this is why you can find a lot of toys here in the library that supported their cognitive development in addition to their love of reading. since the one nine hundred seventy s. economy has been driven by its vast oil and gas reserves but eventually those will start to shrink the new qatar national library is part of a plan to move the economy to one based largely on knowledge and education so this is a tremendous investment and it's an investment not just in this building but it's an investment in education and research for the country i think it's got a huge role to play in creating the next generation of of readers students and we hope leaders too for the staff of the new national library the printed word either real or in cyberspace is key to qatar's future rob matheson al jazeera.
