president donald trump is proposing a plan that could give citizenship to nearly two million undocumented immigrants brought to the u.s. as children but in return he wants government funding to build a wall along the border with mexico and to end some types of family sponsored immigration. to the u.s. president is also threatening to withhold millions of dollars in aid to palestinians unless they pursue peace with israel donald trump made the comments of the world economic forum in davos where he also reaffirmed his commitment to recognizing jerusalem as israel's capital his statements were condemned by the palestinian leadership from davos on diplomatic editor james bay is reports. that the u.s. president seemed in upbeat mood to see arrived here nice cold and prosperity but between israelis and palestinians that seems further away than ever you might think that when you've alienated one side in a negotiation in this case the palestinians you might reach out to them flanked by
israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu the author of the art of the deal showed that not his way when they disrespected us a week ago by not allowing our great vice president to see. and we give them hundreds of millions of dollars in the war tremendous numbers numbers that nobody understands that money is on the table that money is not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace because i can tell you that israel does want to make peace and they're going to have to want to make peace or we're going to have nothing to do with it. of course the reason the president pence on his visit was shunned by the palestinian president and heckled by palestinian members of the israeli parliament the knesset was the controversial u.s. decision late last year to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital something again
praised in downforce by prime minister netanyahu this is the core. that will be for the heart to work with for generations to come we took jerusalem off the table so we don't talk about they never got pastures when we took it off the table not to talk about it more. one one and you'll give us some points later on the negotiation if it ever takes place i don't know that it ever will take place that seems to be a complete misreading of the situation the president is suggesting that he's removing of the stumbling block of jerusalem from the negotiations in fact most believe he's making it an even more divisive issue previous u.s. administrations knew the recognition card was one they needed to keep and not use to maintain leverage with the israelis a two state solution requires pressure on the israelis to give up illegal settlements they built on land that should form a palestinian nation it's
a great honor to be with you from the trumpet ministration israel seems to get only praise and never pressure james pays zero davus. the u.s. ambassador to the un nikki haley has told a security council meeting that the palestinian leadership lacks the courage needed for a peace deal kristen salumi reports from the un. the united states and palestinians exchanged accusations during the security council's monthly debate on the middle east palestinian ambassador riyad mansour or spoke passionately about how his people had been demonized and dehumanize and accused of disrespect while the israelis were rewarded for building settlements on palestinian land he pointed out that jerusalem status according to previous international agreements should be decided in negotiations but the united states ambassador nikki haley accused palestinian leadership of walking away from peace talks. in response to repeated
this of our position i am compelled to clarify further our position is not intended as this respect i repeat this respect and should not be translated as such by anyone in the contrary it is a position rooted in full of the spec for the law for the principles of justice and equity for the charter for this concert for the assembly and for the decades long international consensus and the parameters of a peaceful solution we will not chase after a palestinian leadership that lacks what needs what is needed to achieve peace. to get historic results we need courageous leaders history has provided such leaders in the past for the sake of the palestinian and israeli people we pray it does so again the united states is isolated in its position here at the u.n.
even its closest allies on the security council the united kingdom and france voted in favor of a resolution calling on the u.s. to rescind its decision to move its embassy to jerusalem the u.s. veto that resolution. the new york times is reporting that the us president ordered the firing of special counsel robert in june he's the man leading the investigation into the trunk campaigns links to russia the report says the president backed down when top white house attorney donald threatened to resign if the order was carried out according to the report trump said the could not handle the investigation impartially. in haiti around two million people who live in the capital port au prince appealing for help to get clean drinking water the devastating earthquake eighty years ago wrecked sanitation systems and temporary tarps and toilets used since then breaking down palace reports. this is the only source of drinking water in the domus neighborhood of port au prince a twenty leagues

infrastructure was destroyed and international aid agencies flow wind to build temporary infrastructure including water tanks eight years on they are breaking down as the wait to rebuild infrastructure drags on. listen half of haitians and rule areas have access to clean water and only a quarter of a tortoise. i'm waiting for the international community and for nonprofit organizations to help us only they can make something for us but the international community has been distracted by other disasters the u.n. mission has pulled out and they it has dried up yet hey she remains one of the poorest nations in the world charlotte ballasts al-jazeera. treasures of the famous loot museum in paris are being moved to safety because of the threat of floods through the same has burst its banks after weeks of heavy rain that are. stranded restaurants and submerged bridges as the river seine in paris continues to

australia day being on the twenty sixth of january and want to change the dates but as we said people here are still a minority most australians i know while friday day to celebrate some quite sick and so one survey suggests that by done they use the day off what a few parties to go to boston enjoy themselves not many commemoration reflects in this right and that is built on it if you have some people here don't change the dates but appreciate the change the nature of the day make it almost obligatory in the morning of australia day to commemorate to reflect on the suffering that the twenty sixth of january seventy nine hundred eighty s. began the indigenous people in australia and then only in the afternoon shift the mood and make it a celebration of what a strain it has become. a symbolic doomsday clock which represents how close humanity is to destroying the planet is the nearest it's been to signaling the end of the world since nine hundred fifty three the clock was moved forward by thirty
