cutting deliveries of refined petrol products by nearly ninety percent all north koreans working abroad will have to return home within two years they won't be able to send foreign currency back home they'll be a ban on exports of north korean goods such as machinery and electrical equipment quit mint and also be a crackdown on ships smuggling banned goods aimed at preventing the transport of coal and oil well south korea says it supports the sanctions but insists dialogue with north remains essential george noory reports from seoul. south korea says it welcomes this latest round of sanctions calling it an indication the world will not tolerate north korea's nuclear development program relations between the two koreas are at their lowest point in decades previous south korean administrations have taken a more hardline approach when it came to dealing with north korea but president mungy in who came into office in may leans more towards the liberal side so he's
stressing dialogue as the way forward now south korea is also due to host the winter of the pits in february and it's keen to not do anything to heighten tensions on the korean peninsula ticket sales for the event have so far been slow with concerns that the the security situation is keeping spectators away so while south korea supports international pressure on north korea in the form of sanctions it says dialogue has to be the way forward now how it's north korea likely to respond to this latest round of sanctions while in the past north korea's previously third that sanctions will only have the effect of hardening its resolve and accelerating its nuclear program in august when the un s.c. when the u.n. security council voted to ban north korean exports of coal i n n seafood among other things it responded with testing a hydrogen bomb in september when the u.n. security council passed another round of sanctions in september north korea
launched a missile test in november and we haven't yet had any official reaction from north korea but we can expect a statement perhaps in a day or two put out through official state media we can also expect to hear from north korean leader kim jong un himself who's made it a tradition to deliver a new year's day speech. u.n. has begun flying african refugees stranded in libya to italy one hundred sixty arrived on friday night at an airbase close to rome human rights groups have condemned the conditions in libyan detention centers describing them as inhumane more flights are expected to follow. our plan for the next year is to resettle to third country or two of our great from libya between five thousand and ten thousand refugees well it depends on the countries which will be generous enough like italy now to offer places where we can still direct. as twenty seventeen approaches and we're looking back at some of the biggest stories through the eyes of five families
caught up in them and the first episode we talked to a family of refugees waiting to reunite with their relatives in germany largely reports from the now apollonia camp in northern greece. compared to the squalor of the camps on the greek islands refugee life on the edge of this lake in north increase looks bearable because all is desperate with worry she lives here with her youngest son and her husband her oldest boy mahmoud is in germany with his nine year old brother. hasn't seen them for two years and the best she can do is see their faces on her phone my son every time he get are you with there or with fun or when he took with me he got a mom when did you come to germany. but it's very difficult. because all fled single iraq four years ago but it was overrun by ice and her family has been on the move for the since two years of camps in turkey before she
got to the greek islands then it was athens it to many on the macedonian border the notorious picture camp on mount olympus and now here mahmoud had left them and has begun to build his own life in germany both he and his brother are in school but as he says he's having to be a parent as well as a brother. because it has all the papers she needs to be in germany as well but she isn't and it's tormenting her not to write for the government government germany it's not a lie there where to where there were bad. humans where we don't see the tilted in every every detail didn't get i didn't feel but i don't know why. so this is where the new german politics is collided with the legal rights of refugees under pressure from the far right germany clamp down hard on his
previously liberal policy of reunifying families during coalition negotiations right wing parties were demanding big caps on refugee numbers refugee aid groups say people had been promised they could leave greece and now not sure if they ever will i have the cases also fathers with children and the mother is in germany and the girls sorry teenagers and they really need their mothers and they cannot go and the father really puts great they're forced to support the children but still it's not enough because it isn't alone in her camp there are more than a hundred years e.g. women and children all with families already in germany if palin wanted to be efficient it could stick them on a plane tomorrow but politics she has got in the way lawrence and others in their pull in the refugee camp not increase and on sunday in our one year five family series will look at how the economic crisis in venezuela has hit families.
catalonia is deposed leader has called on the spanish government to allow him to return home. to manas currently in a self-imposed exile in belgium and faces arrest in spain he says he's ready to listen to any offer from prime minister mariano hoyer to resolve the current tensions. one of these pushed us into the last group with us can we are willing to listen to every proposal we receive you know there are models that work the swiss model works very well even belgium is motor works very well as does the german model but all those models have something in a spanish modern lacks and that is recognition without recognition it is not possible to establish an efficient relationship of trust if you think the high cost of fresh food is one of the many challenges for those living in canada's remote far north cold temperatures the lack of sunlight and poor soil mean that vegetables and fruit have to be important for thousands of kilometers away that you lack reports
