libya it's not clear how the deal will be enforced but most of them are expected to be sent back to their home countries plan was agreed at a joint african union summit in ivory coast. was that. well the theme of this summit was huge but there is no doubt the from the outset it was dominated by the issue of the refugee slave trade in libya and by migration we heard from the host of the summit the president of the ivory coast of the beginning who said that everyone had a collective responsibility to do something when at the end of the summit what leaders decided is that they would try and repatch reate those migrants and refugees that are trapped in libya and that they'd also launched a task force to try and crack down on people smuggling and we spoke to many people here who said that that is just a case of firefighting and what is really needed is a long term strategy to deal with migration. african and european union leaders condemned the refugee slave trade in libya in their final
statement they promised a task force to tackle traffickers and urgently repatch rate anyone who's trapped. there are women and children living in inhuman conditions we have agreed along with the e.u. and the u.n. to set up a task force for repatriating at least three thousand eight hundred people. leaders say there are more than forty refugee camps in libya where people are bought and sold by those with a little respect for human life who are leaders here have committed to helping refugees in libya there were very few details as to exactly how and when they will work out create them and they were also very frank about the new task force they say they'll put in place to combat people smuggling so. there was also no mention of the french president's remarks to reporters that military action against traffickers is a possibility the u.n. secretary general told summit leaders on wednesday that new ideas
a needed to deal with migration including more legal ways to enter europe is that something that you discussed and something which you wouldn't visit each you have to. growth of legal migration but the time we have to stop. the illegal migration. obligation youth workers say until young people have real opportunities little change we want next time african leaders leaders to come together and say we are going to support two hundred five hundred one. from africa and from europe and here are the resources that we put in place the practical things to do is you know of telling us in the declaration that yes we are going to people but how are we going to empower the people. here that ending the slave trade is an urgent priority but unless last thing solutions are found to
persuade people to stop leaving home in the first place human rights abuses will continue to affect africa's most fun. this was the first summit between these two organizations there were more than eighty leaders here from the african and european union's and what they said was that this is really an opportunity for a new era in relations one that was equal in a sense it was a an attempt to try to redress the balance of the past but one more many experts have told us is that for as long as the european union continues to pour aid money into africa it is going to be very difficult to do that. u.k. prime minister to resign may's again condemned the us president for sharing and videos posted by british far right group that's despite trumpeting back telling me to focus on tackling terrorism in her own country on a b phillips reports from westminster here in london. on a tour of the middle east forging
a post breck's it role for britain in the world this is not what the prime minister wanted to be talking about the fact that we work together does not mean that we're afraid to say when we think united states have got it wrong. and to be very clear with them and i'm very clear that retreating from britain first was the wrong thing to do. back home in london the government argues that britain's ties with america military cultural diplomatic make the special relationship and this will endure long after the current president has gone the prime minister will always have regular calls with the president and she has been explicit in criticizing this tweet and i know that she will always make sure that she calls it out where she sees it and that's what she's done here. but a tweet from another minister who is a muslim made it clear the president had hit a raw nerve donald trump has upset
a lot of people here in westminster in fearing he still invited to london on a state visit that would involve the queen in practice it's very hard to see that visit happening any time soon the president has provided a huge probably steve bruce to a fringe far right movement britain first which has never come remotely close to success in any form of election here in the u.k. . britain first wants to end immigration and ban islam in the u.k. anti-fascist groups believe it has about one thousand members. its deputy leader franson whose tweets were retreated by the president is facing charges of using threatening and abusive language she's thanked the president for retreating her messages to his more than forty three million followers saying god bless you trump god bless america barnaby phillips al-jazeera westminster. white house
correspondent kimberly has more on the reaction from the white house. so no apologies from the white house even as the president's actions continue to be questioned along with whether or not he is mentally fit to remain in office as a result of what many see as at minimum poor decision making not only are members of the president's own republican party questioning the president's actions and how this has harmed not only international relationships but the president's own policy goals to some democratic members of congress who say that the president's actions equate nothing more than hate and are calling for his impeachment as early as next week on the floor of the house of representatives well the u.s. state department has denied reports that the white house is trying to replace the secretary of state rights to listen with the head of the cia might pay it in jordan has latest on that from washington. after yet another round of news
reports suggesting that the secretary of state rex tillerson is about to be fired and replaced by the current head of the cia mike pale robust pushback here at the u.s. state department on thursday the spokes person heather nauert told reporters that there was unequivocal reassurance coming from the white house indicating that mr tillerson who apparently enjoys his work is going to be staying on in the position that chief of staff kelly called our department this morning and said that the rumors are not true that those reports are not true the white house statement confirmed that there will be no personnel changes it is a fact that secretary tellers and serves at the pleasure of the president as we all do as does every political appointee and cabinet member secretary tillerson enjoys this job he has a lot of work to do the question also came up whether secretary rex tillerson would be believed when he meets with foreign ministers at a number of european capitals next week the message from the state department as
long as the secretary is representing the president and is serving at his pleasure he will be advancing and speaking for the u.s. when it comes to its foreign policy. now russia has accused the united states of doing everything it can to provoke north korea and it says that cutting diplomatic and trade ties is not the answer this as tensions have been rising in the aftermath of north korea's latest ballistic missile launch. some one gets the impression that everything has been done on purpose to make snap and carry out further inadvisable actions you know it's regrettable the americans should explain to us what they're after. on wednesday the u.s. won pyongyang that it will be artillery destroyed if war breaks out tensions are running i often north korea's latest ballistic missile launch which it claims could reach the u.s. mainland kathy novak reports from seoul. following the
latest in a series of ballistic missile launches north korea says its rocket weaponry system development is complete and it's finally a nuclear state the day after firing what the north says is its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile yet state t.v. showed leader kim jong un overseeing the night time test the u.s. president again called kim little rocket men and added a new unflattering description. little rocket man rocket fuel for the american economy. is a sick puppy for the ninth time this year the united nations security council discussed yet another crisis centered on north korea this test is another confirmation that the north korean threat has changed dramatically in a few months both in scope and scale the threat us shifted from being regional
to global. and from the u.s. ambassador a direct plea to china to exert greater economic pressure on its ally and neighbor we need china to do more president tropp 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 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 freeze scenario in which north korea would slow its missile program if the u.s. and south korea lowered their military posture on the peninsula this position supported by russia remove the clip of what 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 this has been repeatedly and vehemently ruled out by the u.s. another round of joint exercises between the u.s. and south korean military forces are due to start here next week north korea has said the drills are a rehearsal for war at the united nations america's ambassador has said the u.s. doesn't seek war but if it does start north korea's leaders would be in her words utterly destroyed kathy novak al jazeera soul. now is in my voice president i miss him and i'm gaga has announced his new cabinet it includes ruling party loyalists as well as figures linked to the military is takeover helped oust former leader robert mugabe but no opposition politicians are included so let's get more on this from harm metasearch who's in harare we've been waiting to hear more about the
makeup of the one guy was cabinet we now have an announcement what's been reaction there to the absence of members of the opposition herrick. well it is after midnight so i think most people react to the news in six or eight hours from now but what is clear is that the military some military officials are in cabinet is pretty much a lot of the old guard been no authorization officials or anyone who thought that it was them and they are present i gather would be different in naming his cabinet be more inclusive would likely be disappointed those who felt or hoped that this could mean a change in the old leadership might be disappointed of course time on the tell but the early indications seem to indicate that it's still pretty much the old zanu p.f. with the addition of the military no opposition so people who are hoping that the
new president will try and be more inclusive in his cabinet will likely be disappointed. and there's likely to be some disappointment as you say still the middle of the night perhaps many people will react to this in the morning but i guess in some ways maybe there was an expectation it might play out like this when it come as any great surprise to many people there. there are some people who are cautiously optimistic they are hoping their prism and specially after after his inauguration speech we talked about inclusive inclusive ety we talked about uniting the nation they had hoped that his new cabinet would be more inclusive have the opposition have people who aren't traditionally in cabinet but there are people who have spoken to over the past few days who said a muslim in and out is pretty much part of the old system they were hoping for change change has to happen this time or you tell but this indication of
a cabinet words which is pretty much the old guard could disappoint some people in the sense that they feel that he was part of the old system he was in rubble mugabe is government from one nine hundred eighty he is part of those individuals who helped keep mugabe in power for the past thirty seven years so some people were skeptical when he became president they were asking really what is going to change this could disappoint those people but again there are those who are cautiously optimistic they hope the president knows what he's doing he is a businessman they will be focuses on the economy despite the cabin his ease assembled so a lot or play out in the next few days i suppose when people wake up and react we'll see what the reaction is when the president speaks easy to make a public appearance tomorrow at a university in the town of chinoy he may say something but i think the initial reaction now for those who expected inclusive more united cabinet will likely be
disappointed especially concerned that there are some soldiers the military in the cabinet which i suppose in any country in the world could raise some alarm bells well thank you very much for bringing us all the latest on this initial announcement of a cabinet from president obama's and i'm going to go harmattan so there in harare thank you her. in watching out as they are still to come prosecutors confirm the violent bosnian war criminal downing did contain a deadly chemical also why the main opposition candidate in honduras is refusing to accept the result of sunday's presidential poll despite his previous promises. hello we've had sort of heat wave conditions in victoria new south wales and in

would work we have what we call. me that means the two sides in separate but adjacent rooms with mr de mistura quite literally the go between i've been shuttling with my colleagues between the two rooms which basically were five meters away while we were actually reading and discussing with both issues which we can see that very important it is though far from a breakthrough there are still discussing the way this round of talks will be conducted the situation is very much as we've seen many times in many rounds of these talks no discernible sign of progress but inside syria the people continue to suffer. the un has revealed that last month four hundred thousand people were displaced from their homes in syria that's the highest number of people on the move for eighteen months getting food and medicine to those in need may soon get even

minister said suicide spoke of what he called a deep moral injustice. this is an event without precedent especially for an international courtroom he has in his own way sent a message on what he thinks about that act which we also think is unfair for the country's president the verdict should mean the start of a new era. croatian president i will do everything so this verdict doesn't ruin relations between gratian and i will visit bosnia as soon as possible but back in must stop me and cry out reaction served as a warning. to be in a fair trial in the hague it would have contributed to peace in bosnia but as it was a political judgment there certainly will be no peaceful coexistence so the work of a tribunal for the former yugoslavia has come to an end but in places like mostar it's legacy continues to prompt debate and resentment that al-jazeera.
