korea's latest missile launch pyongyang says it can strike anywhere in the united states now neighboring countries say this launch is a major jump in its missile capability kathy novak reports from seoul in south korea. it's being celebrated as a priceless victory in north korea state media says the country has completed its rocket system development with the successful test launch of a new long range missile and you're going to kind of get to the i.c.b.m. what song fifteen weapon system is an intercontinental ballistic rocket to the super large heavy warhead which is capable of striking the whole mainland of the u.s. it's the third i.c.b.m. tested this year north korea says this one is more advanced than the hawse on fourteen's in july traveling for around fifteen minutes to an altitude of about four and a half thousand kilometers before landing in waters off japan the intended target
1:03 pm
according to pyongyang's media from the u.s. president who has threatened fire in fury in the past this response. then we will take care of it we have general matters in the room with us and we had a long discussion about it. it is a situation that we will handle it went higher frankly than any previous thought they paid for research and development effort on their part of the new building ballistic missile that could threaten. everywhere in the world basically south korea says it detected the test in advance of the launch at around three a.m. local time and immediately responded with joint army navy and air force drills launching three missiles that simultaneously hit a simulated target the intended message to north korea the south could take out the launch site if necessary president trump spoke with the leaders of south korea and japan. japan will resolutely enhance its pressure on north korea to the maximum
1:04 pm
level we will continue to protect the lives and livelihood of the people of japan and on to the strong japan u.s. alliance president monday and told trump that north korea's technology has apparently improved agreeing to continue the sanctions campaign that angers kim jong un's government but so far has failed to stop its missile and nuclear tests. south korea and the united states along with the international community have no other choice but to continue applying strong pressure and sanctions the south korean government says those sanctions are designed to force north korea to negotiations there has been no communication between the two countries since last year the u.s. and its allies have often said that denuclearization is a precondition for talks but it seems increasingly likely that if north korea comes to the table it will insist on doing so as a nuclear state kathy novak al jazeera sole. now the new missile called song
1:05 pm
fifteen was launched from young song not far from the capitol it reportedly reached the height of about four and a half thousand kilometers to put that into perspective that's ten times higher than the international space station it flew for fifty three minutes before crashing into the sea off the coast of japan. is the managing editor at career exposé and joins us now from seoul in south korea via skype thanks very much for being with us so i want to ask you first of all this latest missile launch do you believe what the north koreans are saying that this this does have the capability to strike anywhere in the continental united states now well it's important to what north korea's. toying with this time there seems to be expert consensus that indeed this is an extraordinary development missile can travel to reach the continental u.s.
1:06 pm
is that actually aimed in that direction but by deliberately making the missile higher than it should be to avoid that trajectory and it was really meant to be simply a test of technical achievement and since in the last two months when we so well certainly lowell in this tension on the korean peninsula. and how our people in north korea in south korea rather taking this where you are obviously they must many of them must be alarmed. at these continual tests by. the north but is there any sort of consensus on on how they should respond to this. well i mean i always say this whenever i am on television and things have not really changed so much from the ground there is calm here if you look at the political level there is a great deal of discussion on what south korea could do it is very clear that the government is backing stronger sanctions as it has since it took power back in may
1:07 pm
but there are also questions as to whether the sanctions can really stop north korea from continuing with the nuclear development at the same time the government has insisted that there cannot be any war on the korean peninsula considering the kind of damage to south korea would suffer so there are divided opinions i think at the very least at the international level you can see south korea agreeing to stronger sanctions against them you know but we've had we've had sanctions several times before i mean as we reporting at the top there the u.n. security council is going to have another emergency meeting as it always does every time the north does something like this what are they going to do that they haven't done already that going to work this time. that's probably a very good question we have seen many many sanctions i understand that the u.s. state department has drawn of the list even stronger sanctions that it's now
1:08 pm
proposing but the question is will they actually stop move korea if anything what we have seen from the only else in skin tone to power is this very strong determination to continue with the program and it will probably not stop until it does reach that state of full nuclear capability that enables it to attack us continental america experts are saying that this might still take two to three years this fight will kill me and he's saying so and during this time what can anyone do well washington has made it very clear that he will not allow this capability so we don't go to war against south korea's wishes and the same time the dominant sentiment here in south korea is that north korea should not be allowed to have this nuclear capability even as many people do not want to see war but perhaps we are coming close to a time when people in south korea as well as in the u.s. need to decide. which for for that they want to see
1:09 pm
a nuclear north korea or are they willing to go to war to stop this could just see when joining us there from south korea thank you. now a judgment is being read at the hague in the appeal case of six bosnian croat is convicted of war crimes the atrocities were committed between one nine hundred ninety two and one thousand nine hundred four in bosnia and herzegovina as a former yugoslavia broke apart former political and military officials are appealing against their sentences handed out four years ago they totaled one hundred and eleven years behind bars they were found guilty of persecution expelling and murdering muslims with the aim of creating an ethnically pure croatian state and this is the final appeal case the court will rule on but as david chaytor reports now from astara divisions of the past still haunt ethnic
1:10 pm
groups. the old bridge of must start built by the ottomans in the sixteenth century one of the priceless architectural casualties of the war in bosnia its wanton destruction is included in the list of indictments against the bosnian croat defendants in the last major case being heard in the international criminal tribunals for the former yugoslavia in the hague now painstakingly restored to its former glory it's become you know esko world heritage site and is visited by tens of thousands of tourists every year. but the very reverse still marks a front line twenty two years after the war ended close by the city's main academy has also been renovated the neo morris building houses two schools under one roof most of them muslims and bosnian croat it's being taught in
1:11 pm
different languages and different versions of history on different floors. ahmed is a human rights lawyer whose daughter went to the school he won his court case against the local authorities demanding a unified curriculum but nothing has changed and we have to. be the must our municipal court decided in its final judgment that they were discriminating against children by organizing the educational system and the curricula by ethnic principals thereby separating children. in bosnia and herzegovina we should all study our history the same history we must not compromise anybody's integrity or language everyone has a right to religion and places to pray this right must be counted but when it comes to school curricula i think many changes can be made so we can all study the same. in the wake of a war that killed one hundred thousand people the idea of two schools under one roof was devised by the organization for security and cooperation in europe to try
1:12 pm
and start reintegration but it's simply cementing the divisions what we have is a situation where you have multiple curricula you have multiple instructors separate ministrations all divided along along ethnic lines and that frankly. and to me personally is is a long term threat to the security and stability of the country. as right kaamelott it's the butcher of bosnia completes the first week of the rest of his life in prisons one experience commentator of the genocide observed a bitter truth. he will at least have the satisfaction of knowing his mission in no small part was accomplished. the city's iconic bridge may stretch across the ethnic divide here but the truth is the division between them as deep as ever david chaytor al-jazeera bastar. for the second day in

a row pope francis has avoided using the name of myanmar as persecuted minority the roman catholic leader preached a message of forgiveness in his first public mass in myanmar's largest city of yangon these are live pictures you're looking at now a meeting with british monks there he urged them to resist the temptation to was here to. ranger to resist the temptation for revenge scott hyla reports now from yangon. the people of myanmar were finally able to get a good look at pope francis this time more than a quick wave out of a window his popemobile is built so he can be seen unlike his convoy of vehicles that have been traveling through the streets of yangon since monday on the sprawling grass fields of the checkers and grounds in the city center. part of held a mass for an estimated one hundred fifty thousand catholic faithful so i know that
1:14 pm
many in me in my bad the winds of violence. visible and invisible the temptation is to respond to these injuries with the worldly wisdom like that of the king in the first reading is deeply flawed we think that healing can come from anger and revenge yet the way of revenge is not the way of jesus the preachings of the pope were directed at the decades of ethnic wars and violence here. in his large public mass where the pope again did not specifically mention the revenge up but his statements about acceptance and identity has prompted some to think about the crisis. i don't think we're hinges are as bad as people say they're only a minority in our country like the pope said they should be treated accordingly by human rights and see no difference between us and them. from a religious point if you have sympathy for. but ethnically i cannot accept them the
1:15 pm
pope is due to hold one more smaller mass on thursday morning and then embark on the second leg of his trip to the region. to bangladesh where he's expected to meet refugees and the small catholic community has got to either al jazeera. next stop is in bangladesh the tiny catholic community in dhaka is getting ready to welcome him on thursday some of held press sessions in their homes hoping the pope's visit will promote more tolerance while they were in the muslim majority nation christians make up fewer than one percent of bangladesh's population. and we've got plenty more ahead on this news hour a day set aside to show global solidarity with palestinians but it comes at a time when israeli pressure on the occupied west bank is growing. reports britain is moving closer to agreeing on its brakes a divorce bill with the european union we're live in london. and later in sport

tiger woods preparing to make a long awaited return to go to china we'll have more on that later in his music. hall last night ahead but first negotiators in geneva are waiting for the syrian government delegation to arrive and join the latest round of talks aimed at ending the war opposition delegates met the u.n. special envoy for say serious the funding the steward on tuesday straight to our diplomatic editor james bays in geneva and james how have mysteries meetings with the opposition gone. well i think there are some concerns in the opposition camp about the situation in in part it's because they're facing a great deal of criticism there are many members of the syrian opposition who were involved in the past of the geneva process who now believe the process has been
1:17 pm
completely compromised that the russians are steering things and that's why they are staying away in fact some more than four hundred thirty prominent members of the opposition have criticized the negotiating team here saying that they don't represent them and even that negotiating team is having some difficulties with stefan de mistura the special envoy they want to focus on the political transition setting up a transitional body to take over in syria he wants to talk about constitution and elections and a spokesman for the negotiating team said to me that they did feel that he had been over influenced by the russians. it can be read that well this stew ation he is supporting is not is against the syrian people and this is this is the best prescription for his failure and we believe that russia. has a power with real influence military you in syria. is is
1:18 pm
pressuring him and james you understand the government delegation has arrived at the syrian government delegation is invited i want more on that. well the syrian government delegation joining these talks late they say they were unhappy with comments from the opposition negotiating team this is the new opposition negotiating team that's been joined by some other groups from the original high negotiations committee they've been joined by a group known as the skaro group and the moscow group the moscow group certainly is one that is not quite as opposed to president assad or some of the rest of the opposition in fact they have in the past been called assad stooges well i think the syrian government or the russians would be hoping that a more diluted opposition would not be calling for president assad to go but they actually are saying what they've always said he must go and the syrian government doesn't like that we will see what how this plays out in the coming hours we don't
1:19 pm
yet know when they're going to have their first meeting with stefan de mistura we think it's likely he will follow the same path he did with the opposition a courtesy meeting first in their hotel before then inviting them for the first stage first meeting actually at the u.n. for a moment james thank you james bays live for us there in geneva now iran's president is accusing saudi arabia of targeting his country as a way of shifting focus from saudi involvement in regional conflicts tensions been grind between the regional rivals since sanctions on iran were eased under the nuclear deal. says his country has to act with professionalism when dealing with the kingdom. on saudi arabia is seeking to solve two fundamental problems that's why the tide a character as an enemy saudi arabia failed in qatar and feeling a lock in syria and finally failed in lebanon they failed in all these regions and want to cover the failure by portraying iran of an enemy secondly inside saudi

1:22 pm
the trickle of humanitarian supplies which have been able to get into yemen is hardly enough to feed the starving thousands of the those affected by cholera as well and aid agencies are extremely worried about the deteriorating situation there the foreign office minister from the u.k. has spoken in the wake of the meeting to say that the saudis understand the urgency of delivering humanitarian aid but at the same time they also want to have security from the kind of missiles that we saw fired from the hutu rebels that said there is a recognition of the great urgency although resolving the situation will be dictated by events on the ground and that includes the delivery of humanitarian aid as well as preventing any further rocket attacks. on the reuters news agency is reporting a senior saudi prince has been released after more than three weeks in detention

1:25 pm
the israeli military is in direct control here in what's known as area c. of the occupied west bank it told al jazeera that the new notice was quote part of the enforcement against the illegal construction phenomenon in the area but the palestinian negotiator forward how ark says there's a deliberate strategy in the weeks before the unveiling of a new u.s. peace plan to clear a vital area east of a large illegal settlement allowing for its growth the encirclement of east jerusalem and the division of the occupied west bank into northern and southern harbors this is what israeli negotiator behavior is. they plan it ahead get rid of the palestinian population who we consider go sheesh and they create facts on the ground and tell you well this is the situation now you have to accept that as residents have grown used to living with the threat of a vixen and demolition while fighting individual cases in court they're vowing to stay on and fight through this latest threat to each and every one of their homes
1:26 pm

1:27 pm
were known that was settlement comes just days before a meeting between the british prime minister and the european commission president due next monday besides the divorce spill the pair war talk about the other two big issues in the break that process the irish border and e.u. citizens rights barbara is live for us in london so nadine what exactly do we know at this point about what the u.k. government has agreed here. or has them it's clear that there was some kind of offer from the u.k. government after last week's cabinet meeting chaired by prime minister to resign may really pressuring the more pro breaks it members of her cabinet to agree not to a figure perhaps to a shopping list to tick off items which they say they will continue to fund now the british press is mentioning that sources in brussels say that will be worth between
1:28 pm
forty five and fifty five billion euros that the upper figure is worth sixty five billion dollars u.k. government sources are refusing to recognize any of the figures being talked about but on the on national radio just a few hours ago britain's transport secretary chris grayling said this we haven't committed to numbers what we've simply said is we will fulfill our obligations built up during our period of membership now the current e.u. budget runs out in twenty twenty britain as one of the twenty eight is committed to funding things like agriculture and and fishery subsidies things like scientific projects many other many other areas which britain says it will meet its commitments to it saying that there is no precise figure but this will be seen as a major concession just two months ago the trees in may was putting the figure at around twenty to twenty five billion euros now the final
1:29 pm
the final so-called divorce bill will actually take many many more years after britain leaves the european union things that are ongoing such as the european union pension pot so nobody can put a final figure on it but it seems that the both sides have accepted the list if you like just a few hours ago michel barnier the used chief negotiator said this though we are awaiting sufficient progress from london on the following three. since the rights of european citizens in the u.k. and of british citizens in the u. issues relating to the border between ireland or northern ireland and fulfillment of the financial obligations entered into so financial obligations ticked off to other major issues the us saying still have to be settled before they can move to the trade trade agreement and on that then air is it is it going to be swiftly onto

1:31 pm
ireland if that's not term flushed out in the next couple of weeks it's really possible that we'll move into twenty eighteen without starting trade talks and that really means that time is tricky because by around september october next year the final future trade arrangement will need to be sorted so that it can be ratified in all of those european union parliaments and the e.u. parliament so many businesses getting very worried about the timetable right now or and again barbara live for us there in london thank you. now in a few moments we'll have the weather with robots still ahead on al-jazeera after years of decline and we look at what it will take to spark some life back into zimbabwe's shattered economy plus. a warning about malaria outbreaks the worldwide death toll on the rise. and in sport find out why le bron james got a jacket from the game for the first time in his n.b.a. career such honor be here with that.
