china and russia have criticized the u.s. president for labeling them strategic rivals singled out the pair as a as main threats to america when he was outlining his new national security strategy a white house correspondent kimberly hocket reports from washington populism has been a hallmark of his presidency and donald trump again struck that note as he announced his strategy for u.s. national security is an approach he says began when voters rejected the security policies of his predecessors on january twentieth two thousand and seventeen i stood on the steps of the capitol. to herald the day the people became the rulers of their nation again in a rambling and often disjointed address skim through the substance of his plan
including highlighting a desire to pursue an almost cold war like mindset identifying china and russia as key u.s. adversaries despite working with russia recently to avert an attack in st petersburg area sieved a call from president putin of russia thanking our country for the intelligence that r.c.a. was able to provide them there was no specific mention of the kremlin's meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election just allusions to china and russia's use of technology to shape a world counter to u.s. values. and only a vague mention of how trump intends to combat the ongoing nuclear threat to the united states by north korea america and its allies will take all necessary steps to achieve a denuclearization and ensure that this regime cannot threaten the world overall trumps message was thin on details he's laying out this case of you know the world
is really bad it was really bad before i got here and now i'm going to fix it so it's not really about the strategy itself so much as you know the person president from determined to fix these problems. and there was only one reference to the middle east in his remarks although his strategy specifically calls on countries to combat extremist groups like eisel locally it was a speech further highlighting one of the biggest challenges for the trumpet ministrations since taking office cohesion and foreign policy success it is a challenge that appears likely to continue given the divergent positions of trumps national security plan kimberly hellcat al-jazeera washington. sent us this update from moscow. just a morning brought to frank and quite a robust reaction from the russian government to president trump's national security strategy speech that he gave on monday and the
response really was the fact that they looked at this document at a glance they said so far and it seemed to confirm what they see what the russians see as the u.s. is continuing unilateral view of the world and how it disagreed how russia was a threat to u.s. security to me putin's spokesman dmitri peskov said that once again this showed that the nature of the strategy was imperial and had a view of looking at itself as being a power a unilateral power an unwillingness to share without as well which is something that really has been a sore point for the russian government as well however they did point out he did point out that the document had only been looked at at a glance and that still more detail needed to be fleshed out with that not
a lot of that detail was given by president trump but this perhaps gives a bit more movement for them to clarify and go and continue onwards with what they say is perhaps at a future a russia u.s. relations in braille now has more reaction from beijing. well chinese officials have been basically pouring over president trump's national security strategy speech in washington the chinese ambassador was first to give reaction he essentially said there appeared to be a contradiction in what the u.s. side was saying on the one hand they regard china as a friend someone to do business with on the other hand they regard china as an adversary and the message coming through loud and clear is that yes china and the united states can be rivals but they don't have to be enemies here in beijing the foreign ministry spokeswoman hard training also fired a warning shot and she had some quite strong language let's hear more of what she
had to say john for any country it is feel tired for them to distort the facts or to smear china we urge you to your side to start distorting china strategic attention and abandon the zero sound again thinking and called ways as cold war might satisfy this will only bring harm to everyone it was president george bush of course who once referred to china as a strategic rival that was more than ten years ago but he moderated his language in the succeeding years the message coming through from china on tuesday was that we have areas of mutual cooperation particularly when it comes to trade two way trade between china and the united states stood at fifty five billion dollars last year and some two point six million u.s. jobs are largely dependent on that trade so china is saying we can agree to disagree but we have to work together particularly when it comes to areas like
north korea so yes we can have our disagreements but at the same time we have to realize that our economies are interwoven and there's going to be friction this year next year and the year after but we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that we need each other in the interests of world peace they want to elevate games in south korea purchased fifty days. is away and security is a major concern after north korea tested another enter continental ballistic missile just last month so u.s. and south korean marines have been conducting military drills designed to enhance combat readiness and freezing conditions kathy novak reports some contract. at first glance portions of this training drill appear to be just a lot of grown men playing in the snow the objective of this challenge to steal their opponent's hats rendering the other side even more exposed to the elements than they already were. but there is a very serious side to these games protecting against the increasing threat from
north korea even in temperatures that can dip below minus twenty degrees celsius. both the u.s. marines and the rock marines have covered over the snow ability reconnaissance skills as well as critical contest skills in a cold weather mountainous environment two hundred twenty marines from the republic of korea or rock the preferred military term and two hundred twenty okinawa based u.s. marines have been conducting these drills over three weeks a chance to brush up on lesser used marine skills such as downhill skiing in. north korea often responds angrily when the u.s. and south part of major annual military drills usually shuttle for the end of february so they don't coincide with the winter olympics and paralympics that will be taking place here in. these exercises have been held since twenty thirteen but this year there are added fears that north korea may aim to disrupt the olympics. a
meeting that south korean and the u.s. marines hope for the success of the come come winter olympics the marine reconnaissance unit will make its utmost efforts to provide security operations for the olympics. south korea wants the winter games to be an opportunity to promote peace it's invited north korea to participate and some athletes have qualified but so far there's been no confirmation of their attendance as ever on the korean peninsula the message from these drills is that the u.s. and south korea would prefer a peaceful resolution to the tense situation but are prepared to respond militarily if they have to kathy novak al-jazeera south korea. japan's government has approved the use of the u.s. military's aegis missile interceptor system that is in response to north korean threats and follows young's launch of two missiles over japan last year and
november north korea test fired and a continental ballistic missile that landed in japanese waters the government says the new weapon system will take years to come on why. palestinian leadership has condemned the u.s. veto of a united nations traffic solution on jerusalem status would have required president donald trump to withdraw his recognition of through slim's israel's capital all of the other fourteen security council members voted in favor of the resolution mike hanna reports from the united nations those against. the u.s. exercises its veto when the resolution fails and then at some bastard a sharpie attacks the fourteen other members of your security council that voted in favor what we witnessed here today in the security council is an insult it won't be forgotten it's one more example of the united nations doing more harm than good in addressing the israeli palestinian conflict the palestinian representative is adamant that the veto is a final confirmation that the u.s.
cannot be regarded as an honest broker in the region. and this resolution affects the status of the united states as a peace broker and it actually stresses its bias and it undermines its role in any future peace process earlier ambassador after ambassador outlined why they would support the resolution the united kingdom will vote in favor of the egyptian text on the islam because it is in line with our longstanding position on jerusalem it is in line with previous security council resolutions israel the only other nation that backed the u.s. position they can vote on this issue again and again and again even a hundred more times but it will never change the fact that he was a limb eve has been in or we will be the capital of israel
but the matter is not going to end here even before the vote was taken palestinian leadership insisted that would take the matter to the u.n. general assembly where there is no veto such a resolution would be non-binding but it would highlight the massive division between the u.s. and the vast majority of other nations on the issue of jerusalem and the possibility too that the palestinians may now push for the international recognition of east jerusalem. as the capital of palestine. mike hanna al-jazeera united nations u.s. vice president mike pence has postponed a trip to the middle east the white house says he needs to stay in washington for this week's vote on a major tax reform bill palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas and one of egypt's top religious leaders have refused to meet parents following the u.s. decision on interest on. so head on al-jazeera hope fades for the missing after a tropical storm in the philippines kills over forty hits on
