palestinian leadership now says mike pence would be welcome in the occupied west bank when he visits the region later this month it says the u.s. is disqualified itself for meeting a peace process whose goal of a two state solution looks at the further from you are a force that al-jazeera occupied east jerusalem and al-jazeera was in ramallah during the height of the clashes and sent us this report. there have been confrontations and clashes. across the occupied west bank. here typically what happens. feel. for them back now. is that they fire. as far as possible. and what they do is that they burn tires to
create a smoke screen behind. what why he was doing this he was expecting. we're doing this for jerusalem i don't expect anything from mahmoud abbas he needs to quit and let the people so if there are problems with israel there have been similar scenes at. west bank now it's unclear yet whether this kind of violence will pick up steam but one thing is for sure is a lot of anger among palestinians. and show. many now are still trying to come to terms. believe. there are. many would tell you that that has happened now and it's time for palestinians to rethink their strategy washington is warm saudi arabia that the

state rex tillerson waitin from paris i think we've been clear when it comes to yemen we have called for and president trump himself called for this week a complete end to the blockade of yeoman reopening of all the ports to not just humanitarian assistance but commercial delivery as well because about eighty percent of the food comes in on commercial shipments we are asking that saudi arabia allow that access now these comments came after air raids by the saudi led coalition killed twenty three people in yemen including women and children. a deal has been agreed between britain and the e.u. allowing regs that negotiations to move to the next stage pending a vote in the european parliament negotiations had stalled over citizens' rights the u.k.'s divorce bill on the border between northern ireland and the irish republic the bug reports. the end of the beginning for breaks it talks the
british prime minister arrived in brussels that door to sign off on a fifteen page progress report opening up the second phase of negotiations on post breaks it relations the commission has just formally decided to recommend to dupe in concert that sufficient progress has been made on the street terms of the divorce getting to this point has required give and take on both sides and i believe that the joint report being published is in the best interests of the whole of the u.k. a deal had to be done imminently to allow e.u. nations to ratify it at next week's summit both sides have been forced to compromise we've been working extremely hard this week and as you will see it hasn't been easy for either side. one of the biggest hurdles has been over the border between the republic of ireland an e.u. member and northern ireland part of the u.k. . for the past twenty years it's been completely open economically benefiting both
countries but at the height of sectarian tensions in northern ireland there were checkpoints and border posts nobody wants the return of a hard border after breaks it for the british government's part as in northern ireland the democratic unionist party also want to make sure the region leaves the e.u. with the rest of the u.k. the prime minister has promised northern ireland full alignment with the rest of the u.k. and would some existing e.u. rules the northern ireland county shares with the republic of ireland dublin says it's positively happy about this arrangement it keeps the borders open it keeps trade flowing but some pro british unionists are wary about being treated differently to the rest of the u.k. and some hardline unionists all interpret this as a possible step towards uniting the island of ireland. the deal has been clear on other sticking points e.u. citizens living in britain and british citizens residing in europe did get some
certainty about their future the deal we've struck will guarantee the rights of more than three million citizens living in the u.k. and a million u.k. citizens living in the they will be able to go on living their lives as before but the european court of justice will continue to have some influence over british courts something hard line breaks a t is will not be happy about and when it comes to the brics it divorce bill an exact figure won't be known until trade talks begin it could be as high as seventy billion dollars. it's been eight months since may signed on article fifty which triggered britain's departure from the european union fifteen months remain to decide the details of the divorce. talks will now focus on trade and security with many jobs potentially at risk in the brics a clock ticks ever louder. parka al-jazeera london. time for a short break here and al-jazeera when we come back. as north korea's ballistic

condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims and to the government and people of tanzania and i we should speedy recovery to all those injured. i condemn this attack any critically and these deliberate attacks against un peacekeepers and acceptable and constitute a war crime. now on sunday the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons will be awarded the nobel peace prize in the lead up to the ceremony we've been looking at countries with nuclear capabilities it comes as tensions remain high on the korean peninsula following pyongyang's launch of a new ballistic missile it says can reach the united states as it was kathy novak takes a look at how developed north korea's nuclear program really is. it's a secretive state that is quite open about its nuclear ambitions north korea says it's developing an intercontinental ballistic missile or i.c.b.m.
that can deliver a nuclear warhead to the u.s. mainland a necessary deterrent it says against what it calls hostile u.s. policy or pressure on nuclear arsenal is for them. commit insurance policy for survival and is a source of salvation for north korean regime north korea first test fired a rocket in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and started underground nuclear bomb testing in two thousand and six. simply or kim jong un came to power six years ago more than sixty ballistic missiles have been tested despite round after round of international sanctions this photo was released in september when the north conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test of what it said was a hydrogen bomb the most recent launch ended a two month gap for missile tests north korea says and analysts agree it was its most advanced i.c.b.m.
yet and state media triumphantly declared the country's rocket weaponry system development was complete but is it from the window he knew in my opinion north korea has achieved about eighty to ninety percent of the technology of the nuclear weapons development. since north korea expelled u.n. nuclear inspectors in two thousand and nine analysts such as kim dong yup paid close attention to images and statements released by state media and some estimate the north could have around sixteen you clear weapons down. the lacking in north korea's nuclear missile technology is the reentry that is technology that would allow a nuclear warhead to survive the heat generated when it enters the earth's atmosphere at hypersonic speeds still kim says the international community's preparations and responses must be based on the assumption that north korea is a nuclear state if true chung yolngu says that is a very dangerous reality most kristie ohman nuclear state they cannot.
cannot be deterred deterred when the moment comes the moment of truth comes that's the problem the threat from across the border has even led some south koreans to ask whether this country should have its own nuclear weapons or allow its ally the united states to deploy tactical nuclear weapons here but president moon j.n. has ruled that out saying when it comes to denuclearize asian on the peninsula south korea should lead by example kathy novak al jazeera seoul and you can watch an exclusive interview with this year's nobel peace prize laureate beatrice finn from i can she will be speaking to us right here on al-jazeera on sunday the tenth of december at sixteen hundred g.m.t. . a former president of georgia mikheil saakashvili has been recaptured in the ukrainian capital kiev authorities had put him on a wanted list to supporters helped him break free from police custody at
