11:02 am
children are diplomatic get into james bays reports from new york the ten veto by russia in the u.n. security council on syria and one that the council's efforts to hold to account those who use chemical weapons in the country. it was a vote that sparked outrage from the u.s. ambassador and she gave this warning that the u.s. may now work outside the u.n. russia has killed the joint investigative mechanism which has overwhelming support of this council the assad regime should be on clear notice the united states does not accept syria's use of chemical weapons as we did in april we will do it again if we must we will defend the international standard against chemical weapons use there was drama even before the meeting began with ambassador hayley accusing her russian colleague of bad faith by refusing to enter into negotiations for some reason the phones at the russian mission aren't working we have tried to get
11:03 am
a call with them and they've been too busy to talk to us this week and when i have tried to call the silly for some reason he's not available moments later she was able to express her displeasure in person a very public exchange of words with the russian ambassador vaseline a benzema even it seems checking his phones for her calls when the meeting started they even argued over the rules of procedure in the council. i was invoking all thirty five of the of the previous little's of procedure the russian ambassador withdrawing and then reintroducing his own rival resolution this two failed to pass meaning as things stand now the team is investigating the use of chemical weapons looks set to be disbanded. the use of chemical weapons is now a dangerous reality what is at stake here today is the very future of the
11:04 am
international chemical weapons nonproliferation regime. there's been real division and high drama it's been a sad day for syria a bad day for efforts to fight weapons of mass destruction and a day on which the u.n. security council has really harmed its own standing as the security council meeting broke up some members were still trying to create a new compromise resolution to keep the chemical weapons mechanism going on a temporary basis there could be another vote on friday but it will now be very difficult to bridge the deep divisions that have been laid bare james by al-jazeera at the united nations chalons has more reaction from moscow. i think there are going to be mixed feelings here in moscow on the one hand they'll be disappointed yet again it's pretty obvious that although when they deal one on one with donald trump russia can get some sort of agreements when they have to deal with the wider
11:05 am
u.s. administration or the u.s. in the united nations then it's the same old divisions but they are going to be happy here that they've managed to kill this investigation because they've hated it from the start as soon as it began working earlier on in the year russia was questioning the validity of the evidence that was being provided to the jay i am. also questioning its methodology then in october when the united states first tried to get the j.i. mandate extended russia said no let's wait let's see the report first now that report came out a week ago and it was slammed by russia as being politically and scientifically flawed now russia's behavior here fits in with i think a general pattern which is to deny and discredits when they're accused of causing civilian civilian casualties in their campaign to prop up the governments in damascus they deny it and they discredit those like the white helmets who try to
11:06 am
show otherwise and here we've seen them deny that damascus was responsible for one of the worst atrocities of the war so far and discredits the internationally mandated investigative body that was trying to say otherwise. zimbabwe's military says it is working with president robert mugabe in a way forward and well and now it's an outcome soon the gobby is confined to his home after the army seize control on wednesday a delegation from south africa's been in the capital harare trying to reach a deal on his future how demitasse has more from harare. people have been watching the news bulletins on state media for hours waiting for some kind of news the latest is that the army says that significant progress has been made and their updates and barbarians when necessary this is what people are working up to today the state run newspaper it shows a picture of president mugabe an army general to anger the meeting yesterday
11:07 am
they're holding hands they smiling it's confusing some of them are means asking what is going on is president garvey on his way out so a lot of speculation because a lot of people fishel sources aren't speaking and there are indications that they could be a lot of movement in the next coming days but some analysts are saying that the army may be trying to manage this transitional process because if it is if it does appear to be a community the army won't get any legitimacy so it's a case of trying to figure out when mugabe's exit will be most analysts here are saying that mugabe is on his way out the question is the timing one thing to watch today is a graduation ceremony a university graduation ceremony which is dissipated a few hours from now there president mugabe is tradition he normally individually congratulates every graduate is here piers the question will be why is the there what is the status is he really on his way out if he doesn't appear it could be indication that the army is really serious about removing him and it could be only

11:09 am
why it's taken a number of days to prep for this particular operation what they did was they took villages in the outskirts of iraq but in the early hours of this morning they went into the center problem itself what they've been doing is they've been fighting with the last pockets i saw lights is that a lot of us places every state across the border into safe havens with syria so this is likely to be an operation that won't take as long as say for some mosul we are expecting it to come to an end family but the iraqi army they are set to civilians living here in these big white flags above the houses have also used the radio transmitters to say it's isis fighters by the surrender or come to surrender and let's see what we can do with what we're hearing right now is that they're in this center of the town itself now this is significant because it's the last remaining i see some boats out if that's taken today that's something that

of missile launches a nuclear test are absolutely unacceptable recently when u.s. president trump visited japan and we were able to show the world the unshakeable bond between japan and the united states china has been under pressure to use its influence on north korea and beijing is sending its top envoy to pyongyang ties between the two allies have been strained of late north korean leader kim jong un has ignored calls from beijing to end its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile tests beijing also wants pyongyang to return to disarmament talks to us and has more from beijing. this visit comes just one week after president donald trump visited beijing and urged president xi jinping to put more pressure on north korea even sad that he knows that president xi jinping can do this if we really wanted to but the government in beijing sastre the visit of sung he's the head of the external affairs committee of the communist party is fueling a courtesy call with china traditionally pays to socialist nations after
11:22 am
a communist party congress but this visit is still significant because the government doesn't rule out that the nuclear program will be discussed and this is the first high level delegation traveling from beijing to pyongyang this year it's very symbolic because with this visit china wants to stress that the relationship although with cooled off quite significantly because of nuclear missile test it's still firm with pyongyang and with a very long and dark winter coming up for north korea because of sanctions there is a possibility that china can put some pressure to report to the u.s. congress is accused chinese state media journalists of spying for beijing and urge they register as foreign agents a commission set up by congress says that chinese state media is rapidly expanded abroad and is spreading propaganda through its news agencies all claim this is part of a broader effort by the government to exert control over its global image as well as
