9:02 pm
u.s. president donald trump says additional major sanctions will be imposed on the korea in response to its latest missile tests made the comments on twitter following a phone call with china's president xi jinping the u.n. security council is due to hold an emergency session in the coming hours young now says it can reach the u.s. mainland knew what song fifteen intercontinental ballistic missile flew to an altitude of up to four and a half thousand kilometers and traveled nine hundred sixty kilometers spending nearly an hour in the air that high a missile traveled more than ten times above the international space station which orbits four hundred eight kilometers above earth several weapons experts say the missiles to trajectory suggest an actual range of thirteen thousand kilometers which is enough to reach washington d.c. and any other part of the continental united states but that also means that europe which is seven thousand six hundred fifty nine kilometers. away from north korea is also now we buy missile after you know bankable in cleated its rocket system
9:03 pm
development with the successful test launch of a new long range missile and you're going to get the i.c.b.m. while song fifteen weapon system is it into continental 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. test 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 according to pyongyang's media from the u.s. president who has threatened fire in fury in the past this response or we can you know we will take care of it we have general matters in the room with us and we've 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 to continue building
9:04 pm
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 level we will continue to protect the lives and livelihood of the people of japan 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.
9:05 pm
yourself korea and the united states along with the international community have no other choice but to continue applying strong pressure on china 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. is a research fellow employee for ation and you can't policy at the royal united services institute he joins me in the studio and i thank you very much for coming in to speak to us so we have a united nations security council meeting on get another test by north korea in a couple of hours time what are your expectations was unclear whether trump has managed to negotiate a deal with china and russia who are crucial to getting
9:06 pm
a vote through the u.n. security council there are still a few things that the u.n. security council can sanction so tougher restrictions on maritime interdictions of north korean ships talk of restrictions on migrant labor that north korea uses to earn revenue abroad and talk of restrictions on oil exports to north korea so there are some further steps the international community can take in terms of sanctions what about unilateral steps and by the u.s. itself was the united states have over the last many months been issuing varies unilateral sanctions primarily against chinese financial institutions who have been doing business with north korea so i think absolutely will see that trend continue and that's one of the tools that the u.s. president has it is his disposal and they're incredibly powerful and you saying in terms of international sanctions we might get something on migrant labor on on things around shipping perhaps but what can we expect in terms of direct u.s.
9:07 pm
action against north korea or at least on those chinese institutions to try and exert some put pressure on the chinese so china is absolutely the key to this i think china is on board on paper but the question is what can china actually do north korea networks are so imbedded in northeastern china that it's going to be very difficult to actually unravel those networks so what the united states will have to do is target individual points and try and shut down into the individual nodes of those that words just give us some more background and context as to why. it's difficult to unravel these networks in china that is so intricately involved to have these established relationships with the north koreans so north korea operates through a series of front companies shell companies that are set up for the explicit purpose of evading sanctions if you are a north korean state into to you that's designated by the u.n. security council you're not going to conduct business in your own name so they
9:08 pm
operate through agents and middlemen who are not connected to north korea in fact they're acting on behalf of north korea but it's very difficult to unravel those that works because there's the north korean about them and on the chinese side how much control does the state have. that's unclear is there's a thing of turning a blind eye for so many years means that you don't have very much control when you're so far down the line all right well i mean all dolled thank you very much for. taking through some of those very important issues but from the royal united services institute looking ahead to the u.n. security council meeting tonight in north korea meanwhile u.s. president donald trump past shed and he was in videos posted by a far right british activist group is twitter account retreated three separate videos posted by jade of france and the deputy leader of the person first movement . writes let's get more on this now with kimberly haokip she joins us from outside the white house and kimberly that has definitely been
9:09 pm
a sense of outrage and condemnation over here tell us more about what the white house has been saying. well the white house has been speaking about it was the president we were hoping to hear from he left departed to go make a policy speech in the midwest of the united states and did not speak before the cameras but you're right there is widespread outrage as well here in the united states over these comments not only from a top muslim civil rights group condemning the comments of the president calling the retreats rather that he did on his twitter account this morning as being as lama phobic inciting violence against muslims but also condemning these and at the same time too we're getting similar comments and reaction on the floor of the house of representatives a democratic congressman congressman rather calling for the president's impeachment before christmas as a result of his actions the same time while there has been this condemnation and calls for impeachment the white house is defending the president's comments the
9:10 pm
press secretary sarah huckabee sanders before reporters at a sort of hastily impromptu appearance here outside the west wing of the white house defended the comments and in fact said that all the president was trying to do is promote strong border security and defend americans from national security threats whether it's it's a real video the threat is real and that is what the president is talking about that's what the president is focused on is dealing with those real threats and those are real no matter how you look at it so it doesn't matter. so avoiding the issue around the videos themselves just the fact that they were retreating kimberly how consistent is this with the president's actions and behavior so far. very consistent if you look at the president's actions as president if you look at his statements on the campaign trail the retreating of these unverified videos really is consistent with what the president said all along i mean we heard on the
9:11 pm
campaign trail where he called for a complete and total ban on muslims entering the united states in the early days of his presidency there was widespread outrage over the executive order banning certain travelers from muslim majority countries and that has been challenge in the court repeatedly is nothing more than a muslim ban even though the white house denies this not of course the language that we've heard the president use where he stresses the word islamic when talking about eisel or talking about al qaida repeatedly using the phrase radical islamic terrorist when talking about those groups even as recently as a month ago the president outraged many again with a tweet where he said and blamed an uptick on crime in the united kingdom on what he said was the spread of radical islamic terrorism the president has been very consistent on his positions and in his policies and you have to remember too is outraged as many are in the united states and around the world there are millions of americans the support the president and that is how he won the white house all
9:12 pm
right kimberly how can the white house thank you for imposing a crop military to has died after drinking poison arson u.n. war crimes court saw madame prayag trying to substance just seconds after he was told he lost his appeal and it's misreports. with his twenty year sentence for war crimes of how on appeal but i'm probably actors was not about to go quietly he received it from. shouting i'm not a war criminal a former croatian general took a drink from a whole bottle. don't. for a short time the presiding judge continued to deliver verdicts on the other defendants then probably heard again through a translator i have taken poison. the seventy two year old's lawyer peter klein's claim not to like me on the. clients as he drank a poison this morning she says research spent at least the curtains probably ak was
9:13 pm
taken to a hospital in the hague where he later died in two thousand and four slept on probably at flew from zagreb to the netherlands and surrendered himself to the hague tribunal with his co-defendants he was charged with trying to create what was described as an ethnically pure greater croatia. probably ak was found guilty with others of helping us stablish concentration camps for bosnian muslims and specifically he was charged with ordering the destruction of the city of must pass ottoman era bridge. on wednesday and more star some of the survivors of those concentration camps watched the sentencing and probably exercise. all of those who had been in camps we expected at least the confirmation that this was a joint criminal enterprise and not only the verdict against prayag but also all the men who took part while on the other side of divided must start some of projects former soldiers understood why he'd taken his own life. but as we show i
9:14 pm
am thinking i would do the same it would be hard to serve time in prison while some are marking you these were the final verdicts to be handed down by the international criminal court for the former yugoslavia the six defendants had their appeals rejected they'd been sentenced to a collective one hundred eleven years in jail the court was set up in one thousand nine hundred three at the height of the balkans war to prosecute europe's worst atrocities since world war two bernard smith al-jazeera. i want to share a news our national still ahead leaders from europe and africa hold their first joint summit in the ivory coast with migration topping the agenda they report from the greek island of last boss where thousands of refugees are facing a harsh winter. and asia's top footballers a crowned we'll hear from them in sport is just.
9:15 pm
now pope francis has urged but it's leaders in myanmar to tackle prejudice and hatred jaring his visit to the country's largest city a pontiff again avoided using the term ranger to refer to the muslim minority from rack and state but he did preach a message of forgiveness in his first public mass warning followers a guess the temptation for avenge scott either reports from young on. the people of myanmar we're finally able to get a good look at pope francis this time more than a quick way 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's center. the part of hell the mass for an estimated one hundred fifty thousand catholic faithful. i know that many in the winds of violence. visible and invisible the
9:16 pm
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 hunger 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 there were hidden gems but his statements about acceptance and identity has prompted some the 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 i see no difference between us and them. from a religious point of few i have sympathy for. but i cannot accept them the 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
9:17 pm
and the small catholic community has got to either al-jazeera. leaders are attending a joint european union african summit in ivory coast with migration and security featuring high on the agenda chancellor angela merkel says the e.u. needs to work more closely with africa to look at illegal migration. is following the summit for us in abidjan and use is supposed to be the theme of this summit but the question of migration has dominated so far. on migration there has really dominated the first day of this summit in abidjan i think the sense of urgency was really underlined by the fact that all of the leaders where they spoke in the opening statements each of the mentioned migration and the tone was really set earlier on not by the president of the ivory coast where this summit is being held because he talked about libya and the trading of
9:18 pm
refugees various slaves and he really said that this is totally unacceptable and everyone here has a collective responsibility to do something about it just a bit earlier i spoke to the french president tomorrow michael and what he told me was that leaders here wanted to try a north an initiative a strategy to try and tackle the situation in libya to help in fact weight some of those refugees that are trapped but it is interesting also that earlier we heard from the u.n. secretary general and what he said is what he said his solutions are needed that are really far more long term and he's talking about things like more legal pathways to europe for margaret and also just developing countries in africa the need extra funding in order to stop people leaving in the first place. we will not put an end to the tragedy in the mediterranean if we do not create significant legal migration opportunities we must also ensure that development
9:19 pm
policy gives people the opportunity to find a dignified future in their home country these two conditions are essential to combat smugglers and traffickers the most horrible criminals of all time. a very strong message there from the u.n. secretary general how's it being received in abidjan. well i think there's no doubt that everyone here knows that something must be done but what's very difficult about a summit like this is you have these two huge organizations the european union the african union they often don't speak with one voice and they're made up of many countries and those countries don't always have the same perspective on the hues or the same ideas about what the solutions are out there and what we've seen for example in the post is the european union has been quite criticized for the approach that they've taken recently to try and control migration which is all for african countries more money more development aid if they try to tighten their borders but then many rights activists have said well actually you're taking money
9:20 pm
away from reducing poverty so it's a very complex issue you have notes of players and really what everyone says that they'll do is at least on the second day is trying to come up with some sort of plan about what they should do next but they have to agree on that first and very much in the following that summit in abidjan. an island in greece which is struggling to look after an ever increasing number of refugees is being described as the guantanamo bay of europe thousands of refugees stuck on the island of lesbos are living in squalid conditions and face a harsh winter and as jonah hill reports greek government leaders are complaining of a lack of help from the european union. the evenings of to cold. most of the roughly ten thousand refugees and migrants stuck on the island live in the bleak confines of moriah camp no matter what no.

9:22 pm
leave the island a deal struck between the e.u. and turkey last year to halt the flow of refugees to europe has left the greek government with the heavy burden of looking after those caught in the middle this is an extraordinary situation for people to find themselves in it is as if they have just literally escaped war or some awful disaster but this is a permanent camp many of them have been here for months and months in the care of an european government it feels more like a government that couldn't care less only the ministry only the meanest the governor of course is a government case or to make a case that the make a case that the government. stop rossmiller younis works with volunteers and the island's municipality running a very different kind of camp it's also stretched beyond capacity but here people smile children sing songs and go to school it's everything the greek government's
9:23 pm
response to this crisis is not. in the hills above morea three young men from book you know fast food look down on what the island's mayor has called europe's guantanamo bay if this is safety and freedom they must be starting to wonder why they came don't know how al-jazeera lesbos greece. in the final part of our series from last boss jonah investigates the living conditions in these camps and for some it's so bad that they're resorting to self harm in the hope of getting out that's on thursday here on al-jazeera the u.a.e. has blocked the former egyptian prime minister ahmed shah feet from traveling it comes just as he announced his intention to run in next year's presidential elections he stood in egypt's first presidential election after the twenty eleven are prizing against former leader hosni mubarak but lost against mohamed morsi of

9:31 pm
able to to make at that council be one that guarantees a sufficient progress i think that's what they report around the table for the twenty seven plus us really want to achieve the figures reported in the british press suggest a reason mase effectively doubled her previous offer of twenty six billion dollars in future payments or monday she'll be meeting donald tusk president of the european council there next month e.u. leaders decide if enough progress has been made in three areas to move on to trade talks apart from the money there's the rights of a you citizens in britain and most difficult of all how to avoid imposing a hard border between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland. will continue if there's no agreement in fifteen days we keep going time is passing and the clock is ticking there will be less time for the discussion on the transition period and less time on the future relationship for which we have to develop the scope and the framework. the opposition labor
9:32 pm
party perhaps sensing a realisation amongst the public that breaks it could come with a large price tag is demanding parliament gets a vote on the final amount if we're being honest about the true costs of brics it should we also add in the last revenues to the exchequer in the redbook something if you will the twenty billion pounds by twenty twenty one and then also that three point seven billion it breaks it preparations for. agencies new border arrangements the lorry parks in dover and so forth and of course add in the higher cost of living for all of our constituents as prices keep on rising whatever the details of the divorce will turn out to be nobody knows when britain will get to start talking about a trade deal with brussels if there's no movement by next month's e.u. summit the prospect of a so-called no deal breaks it comes into sharper focus and that's far from the deep and special relationship that the government still hoping for.
9:33 pm
now turkish uranium goal try to who pleaded guilty to helping iran of a u.s. sanctions has started testifying against his codefendant. is the key witness against turkish banking official met attila prosecutors say the two men that iranian oil money in violation of u.s. economic sanctions against iran christensen amy's following developments for us in new york so what happened in court and what desirable have to say. well merriam zahra appeared in court wearing a prison uniform and has kept this packed courthouse on the edge of its seat throughout the morning with some shocking revelations the prosecution has portrayed czar of as the front man a go between between iran and turkish banks in this scheme to evade iranian sanctions that are imposed by the united states the defendant on the other hand is
9:34 pm
described as the banker who designed the mechanisms for keeping these transactions secret now the bombshell that was revealed by zurab during his testimony earlier today is that not only did the bankers knowingly violate u.s. sanctions in helping iran but that he personally bribed a top member of the turkish government in order to make that happen he took the stand and said that he met with is offered cholly on the former economy minister of turkey after the general manager of hulk bank the state owned turkish bank told him that he was too high profile of a person to take on this job of essentially laundering money from the iranian government of course zorra is married to a pop star in turkey and is very well known there after the general manager told him that he couldn't do this work he went to the economy. minister and asked him to
9:35 pm
have him instated out the bank as are upset that cha leon agreed to have him installed at the bank in exchange for fifty percent of his profits and they were gassed in the courtroom as the prosecution put up on the video screen a spreadsheet showing the payments that. said that he made to this government mr minister totaling in the millions and millions of dollars in fact he testified that he had paid somewhere between forty and fifty billion euro to this government minister as well as four and a half million dollars and some two and a half million turkish lira so quite some salacious details coming out in the courtroom this morning fascinating case that involves vos amounts of money paid in bribes and highlighting the involvement of high level officials as well one of the implications of what we've heard today what does it mean for the defense.
9:36 pm
well interestingly the defense seems to be arguing that the arguments that are being made by turkish government officials who have tried very desperately to get this trial thrown out of court. they. have called zahra. a hostage of the u.s. government they've said that this trial is politically motivated by the u.s. government and time to get sanctions on turkey the defense has not gone into a lot of detail about this but they are saying that the a lot of the information that's being used by the prosecution is coming from turkish investigators who are in their words partisan so the evidence that the government is using can't be trusted essentially that they are saying this evidence goes back to a corruption scandal in turkey that implicated also top members of government was thrown out because it was found that the investigators were acting on behalf of the two law glenn the exiled muslim cleric who lives here in the. united states now so
9:37 pm
it all gets very very complicated at the end of the day though the defense is saying that it still was a civil servant someone who worked at the bank his entire life that there's no evidence that he the defendant took any bribes but they do stop short of defending the turkish government or until his boss in fact they said as much in their opening statements that they weren't there to defend the boss or the government just their client they seem to be setting him up to paint him basically as a fall guy for this massive scheme thank you very much kristen salumi with all the latest on that trial in new york. now iran's president is accusing saudi arabia of targeting his country to shift focus from its own involvement in regional politics tension has been growing between the rival since sanctions on iran will ease under the new deal has on rouhani says his country will act with professionalism when dealing with the kingdom of. saudi arabia is seeking to solve two fundamental
9:38 pm
problems that's why they try to characterize iran as an enemy saudi arabia failed in culture and failed in iraq and in syria and finally failed in lebanon they failed in all these regions and want to cover the failure by portraying iran as an enemy secondly inside saudi arabia the situation is tense and there are internal disputes so they portray iran as an enemy to cover up their failure and their internal problems that's why we must act with all professionalism syrian government is a finally arrived in geneva the latest round of un backed talks aimed at ending the civil war the assad government had initially refused to confirm it would attend the eighth round of talks that began on tuesday between the syrian opposition and the un special envoys to fund the mr a the opposition had wanted to discuss the possibility of removing president bashar assad but the government insists it will not tolerate such discussion talks have now been extended to december fifteenth diplomatic editor james frey said this update from geneva. the government delegation delayed their visit to geneva angered by comments from the opposition
9:39 pm
