11:02 am
often this is when he feels that an issue isn't being covered adequately in his view in the media he will tweet knowing that then in turn we will take a look and see what he's talking about and this is a really good example of that if you go back to the u.s. treasury website last month you'll see that it first called attention to these satellite images that said that it had of chinese ships applying oil to north korean ships in the west see now apparently these satellite images put out by the u.s. treasury department were taken october nineteenth but again it didn't get a whole lot of media attention even though the united states says that this is in violation of sanctions that were put in place specifically speaking to this by the u.n. security council in september so perhaps it's a little bit of frustration on that level and frustration too by the president that he's tweeting this given the fact that when he first came into office in january he immediately began to address the situation of north korea's nuclear program by
11:03 am
investing heavily in the relationship with chinese president xi hosting the mar-a lago speaking enormously about the investment that was being made in the hope that china would use economic leverage to limit the north korean program but in recent weeks and months we've seen some frustration with that while the treasury department says there has been some success with china helping to isolate north korea from the global financial system again there is some frustration by the united states with examples like this of these satellite images so well china is denying these charges saying that there have been no u.n. security council violations as far as it's concerned the u.s. sees it differently and now we see the frustration playing out on twitter by the president donald trump. is off the u.s. presence tweet south korea sees the ship suspected of on. eighteen un sanctions sells as the hong kong flagged vessel transferred oil to a north korean ship in international waters in october yes proposed blacklisting
11:04 am
the ship for knowing international sanctions placed against pyongyang mcbride has the latest from beijing. china will not be happy with this latest attack coming in such a public and stinging fashion but it has in the past year become used to a different type of relationship with the united states and become accustomed to this kind of tweeting diplomacy china has denied any knowledge of getting round sanctions that these illicit trades in oil are taking place yesterday thursday the defense ministry categorically denied that there had been any transfers the day before the ministry of foreign affairs in china said that they have no knowledge of these transfers taking place but interestingly asked whether or member nations of the united nations could be sure that entities or companies in their countries had not gotten around these sanctions which seems to be falling short of
11:05 am
a categorical denial if these trades have been taking place it seems likely that china would not know about them and it does seem to fit with the general narrative of china quietly at least behind the scenes being prepared to prop up the north korean regime not out of a sense of loyalty necessarily to an old ally but merely as a pragmatic measure to keep the place going to stop it from collapsing from china's perspective it is still the case that while it is not a desirable situation it is prepared to accept a nuclear armed north korea what is unacceptable for china is a collapsing north korea with access to nuclear warheads that from china's perspective is a very scary option. stone fish is a senior fellow at the asia society in new york city he says china's relationship with north korea has never been transparent. we don't know necessarily which side
11:06 am
to believe whether china is actually in violation of u.n. sanctions i think it is believable that they are continuing to sell oil to north korea in violation of the sanctions but beijing really doesn't want to see the north korean economy collapse oil as we know is necessary for an economy and i think this is a tension that will be maintained in the relationship between the united states and china going forward you have a wide variety of views across china some people feel a lot of resentment that north korea is trying to embarrass china on the international stage some feel a kinship to north korea and liken it to where china was in the sixty's and seventy's some feel that china should really not need to concern itself with what the united states thinks at all and that trump publicly lecturing chinese communist party secretary xi jinping about what china can or cannot do is not be fitting of

arguing that they should be released i had in particular presenting no danger of being a minor being well known not a flight risk and also arguing that the military prosecution which has been trying to find other things in her past with which to charge or shouldn't be acting in that way that that is that those potential crimes should have been dealt with at the time and that what they're doing now in retrospect is purely in reaction to a video that went viral on the after. videos went out and even fire and then just act itself baghdad then they decided to act no less than. the real reason is because this young man. with able to free. the occupation has everything to have and this case isn't just being seen in isolation just on wednesday another young teenager fauzi alginate he he was released from custody on nearly three thousand u.s. dollars bail he was the young man who was pictured blindfolded being surrounded by

11:19 am
less greece has got a big problem the economist on the whole more than forty percent youth unemployment and at the same time greece is having to deal with the brunt of the refugee influx and the european quota system for sharing them out has fallen apart completely so is the big question if there's not enough jobs for greeks then what to expect refugees to do. in the absence of any other bright ideas some people here have decided to celebrate the new arrivals farmer demetrius makes some dried tomatoes and grows herb's but he has a problem his village like hundreds of others has shrunk by half since the economic crisis as the young people moved away there are empty houses here waiting for families to move in to breathe new life into the community he'd love nothing more than refugees from rural syria to help him out you think you can help each other yes if they refuse his orders to stay here we can do it many

11:23 am

11:24 am
a technology analyst in california he thinks apple handled the situation badly it seems to me that he should have been forthcoming at the very beginning before they even slowed down the phone they should say we want to slow down your phone because it's going to help you preserve battery life it's going to avoid potential crash it is that ok and most people would probably say yes i would rather have a slow phone than a dead phone in so it actually was a feature not a bug but the way they handle it was so poor that i actually want to be coming almost a crisis with a company if you have an old phone with an old battery you can expect erratic behavior that is the nature of the battery technology they degrade over time so apple is right that older phones with older batteries are likely to hear through on the run for as long and potentially crash unexpectedly so that's not the problem that's just the nature of the technology to probably the way they handled it in check i don't know what people would say i know i would have said yes slowed my phone down in exchange for not crashing and i would have rushed out and bought
11:25 am
a new phone or a new battery and i think the way apple with the old but we have to look by making the batteries relatively cheap twenty nine dollars does pretty much solve the problem for most people but they irritated a lot of people in the process and egyptian officer and five soldiers have been killed in an explosion in north sinai egyptian army said it was carrying out a military patrol outside the town of bear on a bed when a roadside bomb hit. in november suspected eisel fighters carried out a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in north sinai that killed more than two hundred fifty people. demonstrators are back on the streets of paris capital in that a protest against the pardon grants to former president alberto fujimori on sunday a controversial decision by embattled president. has prompted his culture minister to resign and as john de silva reports as also drawing international condemnation. peru is being forced to revisit a painful a not so distant past the presidential pardon of alberto fujimori who led latin

11:30 am
a comment on how some of the issues that we we faced as a nation when the battle of gettysburg took place or still kind of relevant today that still haunt us today and what you get a sense of as he went back in and disrupts the imagery is the sense of history and how history is never transparent there's never one version of history and that there are always these filters through which we all view history. you're watching out there these are our top stories u.s. president donald trump has accused china of violating u.n. sanctions against north korea by not cutting off oil supplies to pyongyang u.s. treasury has released satellite images that appear to show chinese ships transferring call go to north korean vessels beijing denies the accusations hours after the u.s. presence tweets south korea sees a ship suspected of taking part in that operation cells as the hong kong flagged vessel transferred or oil to
