for the u.s. position doesn't appear to be forthcoming from china and russia from the united nations is mike hanna. for the ninth time this year the security council gathers to discuss yet another crisis centered on north korea an emergency session called for by the u.s. japan and south korea and a grave warning from the french representative this test is another confirmation that the north korean threat has changed dramatically in a few months both in scope and scale the threat is shifted from being regional to global so the u.s. ambassador makes a direct plea to china to place greater economic pressure on its ally and neighbor we need china to do more president trot called chinese president xi this morning and told him that we have come to the point that china must cut off the oil from north korea that would be
8:03 am
a pivotal step in the world's effort to stop this international pariah but no such pledge from china instead it called again on the u.s. to explore a freeze for free scenario in which north korea would slow its missile program if u.s. and south korea lowered their military posture on the peninsula this position supported by russia the militant group with whom we proposed a solution based along the principle of suspension for suspension which in visions of d.p. r. k. stopping missile tests while at the same time the u.s. and south korea decreasing the scale of their military exercises this in turn will pave the way for the principles of peaceful coexistence and peaceful discussions between washington and pyongyang. but the says been repeatedly and vehemently ruled out by the u.s. and clearly while the council is united in its condemnation of the latest missile launch it remains divided on how to respond the question now if the missile testing
8:04 am
continues will the u.s. continue to seek solutions with its security council partners or decide to go it alone mike hanna al-jazeera united nations. brown has more now from beijing. i think in the short term there is no likelihood whatsoever of china severing diplomatic ties with north korea or indeed cutting off the oil in september of course china did announce that it was limiting oil exports to north korea to two million barrels a year now as far as the trumpet ministration is concerned that is two million barrels too much what they want is for china to cut off not just exports of oil but also the food and medical aid that it sends to north korea of course there's much that the north receives from china that's outside the scope of u.n. sanctions but china of course wants to avoid a situation which would lead to the collapse of the regime in north korea that of course would pose

a direct threat to china's national security now president xi jinping and president trump have held another telephone conversation but the readout of those conversations is very different here in beijing the official shema news agency says that trump thanked china once more for its efforts to try to resolve the crisis on the korean peninsula and that president xi jinping agreed to continue talking to all related parties whereas the readout from the white house says the president from once more urged china to use all leavers to persuade north korea to end its hostility there is i think in the chinese capital now a growing realisation that the chances of finding a diplomatic solution are proving futile and that perhaps the united states might well be prepared to go alone over north korea. the united arab emirates has dismissed allegations by the former egyptian prime minister ahmed shafik that he's being stopped from traveling to speak says he's being blocked from leaving the
8:06 am
u.a.e. after he announced plans to run in egypt's presidential election next year left egypt after he lost against the muslim brotherhoods mohamed morsi in the two thousand and eleven election. my fellow egyptian citizens i have announced my intention to run in the presidential election and i was planning to start a tour amongst egyptian communities abroad before going back to egypt in the next few days however i was surprised to find out i'm prevented from leaving the u.a.e. for reasons i don't understand and i'm not willing to understand i've often stated my appreciation for the u.a.e. for hosting me however i reject any intervention in egypt affairs by preventing me from participating in a constitutional right while sahara zs is a professor of law at rutgers university she says she has a strong following including those in the military. i think it's reasonable to assume that the egyptian government is public laying of
8:07 am
a role behind the scenes because the u.a.e. and egypt are very strong allies right now particularly with sisi at the helm and so the question is why wouldn't sisi watch a fig to come back to egypt to run for the presidency and i think the answer is by clear which is the sisi does not want to serious contender he certainly needs a contender but one that is known to be weak and will not win the election but simply create the appearance that the next presidential election will be competitive and shafique will be a very serious contender if you look back at the two thousand and twelve elections for example there were thirteen and then nine candidates and sheffield ended up being of the final two or so that shows that he was able to have enough popularity to be a finalist and he barely lost to morsi and one of the reasons is because he is very well connected to what is now known as the deep state in egypt and military is currently at the head of the state so his connections and his reputation with the
8:08 am
military is one that none of the other contenders would have and he is likely to leverage any existing divisions within the military and to leverage popular discontent with sisi particular on economic issues because inflation is at thirty percent unemployment is at thirty percent for youth so he will leverage that against sisi to perhaps even win the election u.s. president donald trump attacked the british prime minister to resign may for condemnation of his islam re tweets trump said three on to muslim videos from a far right british group to his more than forty million followers a spokesman for terrorism a call transactions wrong on this is what trump replied with tourism don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that's taking place within the united kingdom we're doing fine wasn't jordan has more from washington d.c. . a wednesday the u.s. president donald trump was roundly criticized for reach waiting three videos which
8:09 am
he claimed showed muslim violence against christians and others who do not share the muslim faith the british prime minister through a spokesperson condemned the reach weighting of these videos which had been disseminated by a far right wing group or neo nazi group known as britain first the message from number ten downing was that this was inappropriate and it was nothing more simply disseminating hate and bigotry around the world of course donald trump but then fired back late on wednesday against the prime minister to resign may essentially addressing her on twitter and saying that she needed to pay attention to the own country her own country's problems dealing with what he called radical islamic terrorism inside the u.k. that of course is not going down well with a number of people on both sides of the atlantic not only have
8:10 am
a number of republican senators condemned the remarks and called on president trump to retract those comments but the communities minister in the u.k. sodje job it is now saying that what mr trump has said is reprehensible and that he would use his own position as a public figure to try to fight against this sort of dissemination of bigotry and hatred and of course it is worth pointing out that at the beginning of donald trump's tenure as president there was active discussion in the u.k. about inviting him to visit the country on a state visit and at the time minister job it was saying that people should keep an open mind and not just stand against a trial visit outright but now in light of the dissemination of these videos that have been supported by far right wing groups mr job it's june has very much changed . now in the coming hours pope francis is expected to make his first trip to
