10:04 am
on wednesday the u.n. security council will hold an emergency meeting to discuss the situation for more i spoke earlier with journalist jason strother in seoul i asked him for his assessment of whether north korea now has a missile that can carry a nuclear warhead to any target in america i mean based on what we heard on the north korean broadcast this afternoon it would seem that it has the capabilities and judging by the tone that president trump general mattis as well as officials here in south korea are taking it seems that this is a missile that can reach out to tubes that no other north korean missile can before as before the u.s. based union of concerned scientists an independent think tank says that if all these numbers are true in terms of its trajectory and altitude this missile could strike as far as washington d.c. ok now a regional powers like japan and south korea have been taking defensive measures in
10:05 am
response what's going to tell us about that. right well i mean him immediately after north korea's rocket launch early this morning south korean military forces conducted its own live fire exercises they shot missiles at targets off at sea off the east coast by land sea and air according to the joint chiefs of staff here these targets where approximately the same distance as north korea's launch site so south korea is sending the message that it can handle or at least take out any of north korea's rocket launch facilities ok now it's been two months since the last missile launch by north korea what can we make of the timing of this law. well i think there had been some hope that the tough talk coming from washington over the past few months maybe scared kim jong noone into holding back on its own is rocket launches but just yesterday here in seoul south korea's unification minister
10:06 am
said that north korea has made faster progress than anyone expected in terms of developing its nuclear weapons program and that more tests should be expected essentially so really this missile test this what looks like an i.c.b.m. shouldn't come as a surprise jason thanks so much for that from seoul south korea pope francis a celebrated in open air mass and me in mar some one hundred fifty thousand people mainly from the country small catholic minority attended the service and then gone the bond of calling on people to embrace forgiveness and reconciliation as their country emerges from nearly five decades of military rule to say francis met mina mars de facto leader almost on sochi but he avoided discussing the persecution of revenge of muslims which the u.n. in the us of described as ethnic cleansing a short while ago i spoke to did of your correspondent boston hartigan young gone i
10:07 am
asked him what the pope said during his homily at mass. well mainly he was talking about making peace this is a country that is facing many conflicts not only the conflict in rakhine of course and the crisis of the rohinton the plight of the ruins of people there but many conflicts there are. ethnic conflicts that have been running for many decades and for example in kitchen state where many of the christians are from many of the christians also that were at the mass today there's an armed conflict there that that's been running for a very long time and many people. have bear wounds from from this conflict and that's what that's what the pope talked about and talked about re conciliation and how that reconciliation was only possible that if there was forgiveness and if there was love and the people shouldn't resort to anger and to hatred and to revenge when it comes to dealing with these conflicts even though that might be
10:08 am
a human reaction in the political discussions with a saucer she and with military leaders apparently the pontiff did not raise the issue of the why was. well it was the pope's decision not to mention the role hinge or. the thing is before the speech yesterday and also today he didn't mention he didn't mention the he did refer very briefly to the conflict in rakhine along with other conflicts people he was praying for in those areas play didn't mention the ruins and he was warned by various sides or hand also by the cardinal here in myanmar not to use that word because it would antagonize a lot of people here this is a very sensitive issue and the fear was that it might deepen the divide between the religious groups and make that we can silly ation that the pope is trying to help
10:09 am
achieve and to make that more more difficult and maybe that was the reason. why he chose not to use that word brian hart bring us up to date on the qantas visit to myanmar thanks very much this morning boston. more than eighty african and european leaders are gathering in ivory coast to promote jobs and stability for africa's rapidly growing population the two day summit opens as the european union places a greater emphasis on ties with africa especially with the recent unprecedented levels of migration. the european capital was trying to send out some positive vibes at a number of events ahead of the summit in abidjan and at the european parliament high ranking politicians were also trying to find solutions for better cooperation between the continents is open i want to get to the people in the past the europeans had a tendency to look to the east towards russia and china they haven't done enough in
10:10 am
africa sure we invested and we are committed but i think we need to strengthen our strategy not just throw money at the problem may. by the minute i wish. the wake up call for europe was the migration crisis more than one hundred thousand africans arrived on the shores of the e.u. this year alone and some estimate that two million more are on the move towards europe the e.u. has been working on a plan to curb the influx and will try to sell it at the summit one of the key aspects of the plan is to fight the root causes of migration in some countries like those are political in others like nigeria the main reason is poverty the e.u. also wants to destroy the business model of human trafficking smuggling africans to europe has become a multibillion euro industry. to keep migrants from making the dangerous trek across the mediterranean the e.u.
10:11 am
would like to beef up so-called reception centers in the transit countries and finally the e.u. is. hoping to reach agreements with the countries of origin to take back those migrants who made it to europe but were not granted asylum. many african countries want something in return mainly money and legal migration alternatives for their citizens. to feel safe you know we just like the funding and we have the will to change things but this will needs to be supported with resources our economy is mainly informal to change that we need foreign investment. into full did. he did business his mom it was a. european countries are we really go they have sunk a lot of development money into africa over the decades like here in chad often with no noticeable improvement but for many on the continent the blame is clearly
10:12 am
not entirely africa's. the biggest mistake is that aid doesn't always come with conditions attached and the red carpet is being rolled out for dictators that are starving their people and corrupting elections while enjoying the respect of the european countries. to live his big. money in return for migration control most likely that will be the defining narrative in. the europeans hope that this africa e.u. summit will yield tangible results. for the very latest from the cross over now to do their views max often standing by for us in abidjan what are people expecting to come out of the summit. bryan the official motto here is empowering africa's youth and if you look at the demographics you have this is the youngest
10:13 am
continent in the world but you also have the highest rate of youth unemployment and then if you see the new news statistics that the whole population in africa is going to court job pool until two thousand one hundred you can see this is in the porton topic but it is a long term topic and in the short and mid term as the africans and the europeans are expecting different things as we just saw in the report the africans want more aid they want investment they want money to put it quite simply and the europeans want african countries to help them curb the influx of migration in short they want border and by gratian control in return for their financial efforts ok sounding like migration and security are likely to be key issues at this summit can we expect substantial progress in these areas. remember what happened on the western balkans route that was the the route where most migrants came through two years ago that was effectively shut down because one of the
10:14 am
transit countries in this case turkey played along and said ok we will help you curb the influx of migrants that's something you cannot reproduce replicate here in africa because some countries make a profit transit countries like niger through the human trafficking and other countries like libya are completely out of control i mean you've seen the reports that migrants now are being auctioned as slaves in libya this just shows you how far gone that country is it is the country where most migrants pass through so there is no easy solution that's why the e.u. now is trying to focus on the countries of origin we just talked about ethiopia we talked about niger meaning that they want to eliminate the root causes of why people make that trek to europe and that is something they try to do with financial aid and of course also trying to convince those countries to take back the migrants that don't have any right to say in the european union but that brian is a very very long process it will take years decades it's
10:15 am
a step by step progress process and that so many presidents heads of state heads of government are talking here of the jaw that's already a success ok max often for us and others i'm looking forward to seeing what comes out of that summit max thanks very much for now though. get your mind of our top stories this hour u.s. president donald trump has reacted to the latest north korean test missile launch saying we want and what china is voicing grave concern about the test the missiles all three north korea's most powerful today. i'm brian thomas for the entire news team thanks for being with us. germany is a strong country. that we have achieved so much we can do this and if something him to resign we must overcome it.
