11:01 am
our correspondent in seoul also coming up. when friends for laos u.s. president donald trump attacks british prime minister is a may he tells how to deal with radical islamic terrorism in the united kingdom this often made spokesman criticized strong for repeating his double for because videos. and giving young africans a better future at home so that they don't make the dangerous journey to europe that's at the heart of the song that's between leaders of the e.u. and the african union. hello and welcome i'm a touchy. the u.s. says war north korea's leaders that they will be utterly destroyed should tensions over the country's weapons program break out into war north korean state media claims this photo shows pyongyang's latest missile test launch two days ago
11:02 am
observers say it is north korea's most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile to date and that this rocket can hit any city in the u.s. including washington d.c. the trumpet ministration has also threatened new sanctions and pressed china to cut off its oil supply to north korea america's ambassador to the u.n. and he haley delivered this stern reprimand to the north korean regime the dictator of north korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war not farther from it we have never sought war with north korea and still today we do not seek it if war does come it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday and if war comes make no mistake the north korean regime will be utterly destroyed the nation joining me now is jason strother he's covering the story for
11:03 am
us from the south korean capital seoul so strong winds from the u.s. ambassador there are in the united nations is solar wind that these kind of threats could be counter petard productive. it's been a concern of south korea's president moon j.n. ever since he took office back in may and just today his unification minister this is the official who is in charge of relations with north korea expressed concern that upcoming joint military exercises with the united states that are scheduled to take place around the time of the winter olympics in south korea could further cause tensions to rise so certainly the war of words is something that south korea feels that it's stuck in between and just been done trump is once again called on china to do or it can to isolate north korea but the relationship between the two allies is very close isn't it it's always been described as close as lips and
11:04 am
teeth of course that came back from when china pretty much rescued north korea during the korean war from the advancing american army relations aren't quite as close as they used to be of course china is north korea's biggest benefactor much of its oil supplies come from china but that doesn't mean that beijing is ready to turn off the tap so to speak. final korea has been completely. by sanctions and the deal the outrage why. right well you know this feed into north korea's worldview actually i mean any resolution or sanctions at the u.n. security council just reinforces young's. ideology that it is alone in the world that hostile enemy nations are out to get it in particular the united states and it only causes the north korean regime to. make more
11:05 am
inroads with its own people it gives the regime legitimacy to have sanctions placed on it so what was said at the u.n. security council does not mean that it will bring north korea back to any negotiating table and to its latest myside don't want to move to be the most advanced so far what all the options from washington to deal with what many view as a major security threat and north korea's always been described as the land of bad options and this is no exception the u.s. doesn't have a lot of options right now of course there always is this specter of america launching a preemptive military strike something that the trump administration alludes to invade terms but that certainly is something that south korea does not want to see president moon has said that if the u.s. were to consider preemptive action it would have to go through seoul first. and it
11:06 am
is certainly something that has resonated with the south korean people normally south koreans are fairly apathetic to what happens with north korea whatever north korea says or launches a missile but ever since president trump came to power there have been many more conversations here about what's going to happen if trump were to act jason strother in so thank you very much for that thank you. the president trumps tritter habits are threatening to talk radio the relationship with one of the us is closest allies the united kingdom it all started on wednesday when trump shed three islam or four big videos posted by the leader of a far right extremist group britain first one claims to show muslims pushing a boy off the roof another instance of police shows a muslim man destroying a statue of the virgin mary and the third illegibly shows
11:07 am
a muslim migrant beating up a dutch boy on crutches now the dutch embassy in the us has already debunked the last video as fake news tweeting facts do matter the perpetrator of the violent act in this video was born and raised in the netherlands he received an completed his sentence under dutch law what's more dutch media is reporting the attacker is not even a muslim but it didn't end there the spokesman of the british prime minster terrorism a publicly criticized the u.s. president saying british people overwhelmingly reject the prejudice of the far right it is wrong for the president to have done this trump then immediately fired back tweeting don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we are doing just fine now for more on this and what this means i'm joined by our london correspondent big mosque
11:08 am
welcome to get of this is all quite unprecedented what has been the reaction there to president trump's directory to prime minister to resign me telling her to basically mind her own business. well it's a huge story here in the u.k. and what president trump has been doing is alienating many people who would normally babys be seen as allies people who are more conservative maybe more leaning towards republicans for example the t.v. personality piers morgan has a huge following on twitter was calling on president has been calling on president trying to undo his tweeds also we've had. who is a prominent government minister and he's been very outspoken he said that president trump has endorsed the view of a violent going to zation that hates people like him it is it is a muslim and he refuses to let it go and say nothing so it's
11:09 am
a huge reaction here in the u.k. people are taking it seriously also the house of commons has tabled an urgent debate on it so this will go on at least throughout the day. is of course a big no one for a spontaneous an unorthodox with but how much of a setback would this be in what was or was viewed as a very special relationship especially with drugs had looming. well of course with bricks and looming one of the objectives of the u.k. government is to have even more special relationship to the u.s. but of course behind the scenes there would be realising that this is not going to be plain sailing however are they will try and go ahead with this reason me has been quick for example to russia and visit president trump just after his election much more quick than for example angela merkel and other leaders who have been much more cautious however the british government does need to somehow not lose touch
11:10 am
with the u.s. and diplomats here in the u.k. for example the retired diplomat sara jeremy greenstock they have been saying well the special relationship doesn't only refer to president trump it refers to the history of the two countries and refers to the shared values and also to the american people so they're basically trying to well see how much and how close they can get because of the brics it they will have to somehow stay close to the united states and look at the timing of this dispute is bad it comes as terrorism it is in the middle east where she is trying to win business. well yes to reason may is in the middle east she's been in iraq she's also been visiting british troops there so it's not just about business that at least were the words she would say and so far she has been quiet and we've heard this statement on twitter yesterday but nothing so far and it remains to be seen if she's going to
11:11 am
try and do something more later today right begin last in london thank you very much. let's articulate some of the stories making news around the world pope francis's arrived in bangladesh after visiting me and maher the catholic leader has been criticized for not specifically speaking out against the country's treatment of muslims the pontiff is expected to meet with a selected group of ranger refugees in bangladesh more than six hundred thousand have fled to that country to escape ethnic violence in myanmar bali remains on high alert for a volcanic activity at mt but flights have resumed after a three day airports shut down on the dinies an island thousands of foreign tourists have been stranded there but a shift in the wind direction blew away ash and smoke that posed a threat to aircraft. protests in the philippines capital manila have been holding
11:12 am
a rally against president to go to tear to his plans over his threats to launch an unconstitutional crackdown on his opponents various left wing groups organize the protest they've also condemned the possible return of police operations in detent is war on drugs. dutch authorities and vesta getting how the bosnian croat war criminal managed to take his own life during a un court hearing in the hague former general slobodan probably killed himself with poison he'd smuggled into the chamber this after a judge upheld a strained two year jail term for crimes committed during the war in the former yugoslavia. addressing the root causes of the crises that created refugees and can contain migration is the focus of the summit underway in ivory coast capital abidjan more than eighty african and european leaders are attending the summit which is tackling issues like high youth unemployment i talked to our correspondent
11:13 am
there in just a moment but first this report. where they can spell the beginning of a new life and missionaries all had wanted to try his luck in europe but halfway into his journey into his ear he gave up and returned home to ivory coast the international organization for migration gave him a small amount of start up money for his chicken farm. shocking fish would be more of these initiatives to stop young people leaving africa that's his message to the heads of government reason just a few kilometers away. but like to see them spending more money on young people there are so many unemployed young people many of them are highly qualified and have plans and ideas something has to change. the topic of migration is high on the agenda at the african and european union summit german chancellor angela merkel said the issue is tied to the fight against
11:14 am
people trafficking. in recent weeks there have been shocking reports from libya detailing how african migrants have been sold as slaves. at the theme i know that in a highly emotional element to the issue so i think there is a common interest in stopping illegal migration and instead offering legal ways for people from africa to be educated and study in europe africa. humanitarian critics say there are far too few legal possibilities for migrants but most n.g.o.s are excluded from discussions at the summit an alternative summit for n.g.o.s was cancelled by the ivory coast security services without reason khadijah khanate was one of the organizers she thinks the official summit is undemocratic. jim well then you need something like this is good for the governments but not for
11:15 am
the people here i really don't think that the concerns will be heard at the summit . even these young artists are not allowed to cross the cordons they say the summit will do nothing to help them young people will continue to try their luck elsewhere as long as those in power and africa continue to ignore them. is covering that summit in the city of abidjan in the ivory coast and he joins me and knol for all of that now you know max the issue off slave trade in refugees in libya has caused a huge amount of concern and a battle of a cause for urgent action there what was. there was an emergency meeting by the leaders on the topic called for by french president in my new remark called last night and it did year old some results according at least the french the plan is now to evacuate at least some of the migrants that are in these terrible camps in libya of course there are two problems with this first of
11:16 am
all. not all the camps will grant access to whoever wants to go there because the situation in libya is complicated and although the official government has said we will help you do that some of those camps are not on the territory of the official government and then who is actually going to do that in my view and i call talked about military personnel the germans denied that what they agreed on apparently though is to send those migrants into camps in the niger and child and to process their asylum requests going forward there so you can tell it's still very sketchy plan and a lot of those details are still lacking in the summit is wrapping up and now max i mean what kind of proposals what discussed ahead africa's a young and vibrant population. it looks like there won't be a whole lot of concrete things in the conclusions it's usually about money and the
11:17 am
e.u. wants to try to help with what some of them at least call a marshall plan to generate about forty billion euros within the next used but that would involve also the private sector is stepping in which is not a given at the moment and then it also involves good governance and of course paddling fighting corruption in africa something that the german chancellor stressed very much and so you need a lot of cooperation on both sides they will probably say that they're determined to do that but any concrete proposals or commitments so far we haven't seen any in the draft proposals that we see m.x. elfman abiogenesis ricos thank you very much for that and now to get out and it seems that we need to steal all sounds for a potential trade not if a conference here in berlin today is successful indeed trade ministers from g twenty countries have gathered in the german capital to evites an all out trade
11:18 am
while all of us still as i say with regard to relationships it's complicated china is under fire for throwing cheap stale on to world markets to deal with its overproduction at home after its economy lost some steam recently the us has threatened to impose tariffs on foreign steel that in turn is irritating the e.u. which said it would retaliate german trade minister hinted to please who's heading the talks as want the chances for an agreement at today's conference us. well business correspondent he pondered is absent the meeting of the g. twenty and always ministers economy minister chip how the talks going what are you hearing from that against. well. germany's trade minister came in to make the opening statement and she was delayed a couple of minutes because they were in negotiations and speaking before the meeting was going to start and she described the talks so far as
11:19 am
intensive and difficult those were the two words she used and so i think things have been really difficult and on the sidelines i spoke with pressbox person of the ministry who told me that china seems to be holding back on some of what has been agreed upon by all the g twenty countries that are represented here and as well as the o.e.c.d. countries that are present so china seems to be holding them back right now china's not ready to disagree to agree to reduce its steel production capacity at this point. going to how important is this this meeting if there's no agreement being rigid the end of it what does that mean for the steel industry. well we will know that of course in a couple of hours it will mean that the steel industry will continue to suffer from some of the troubles it's had which is definitely dumping in terms of you know imports coming in from countries where steel is much cheaply produced china being
11:20 am
one of them and so of course we know that the u.s. has said that they might impose punitive tariffs on steel from china and the e.u. so it's definitely going to be a bit of a problem we've heard about to some group as well potentially merging with. tata steel we may be looking to jobs being lost in the industry and we'll definitely see the industry becoming smaller because obviously something needs to be done before you know if the industry is to survive the overcapacity that it's going through right now. to monitor that in linz economy history thank you. and there are talks about another important commodity going on in vienna where members of the opec cartel other currently discussing to extend the cap on global also plans for the next nine months the current agreement limits the oil production
11:21 am
to over thirty two million barrels a day it runs out in march nano paid for producing countries are attending the meeting as well including russia sources told reuters that opec and its allies are set to extend the output cutting deals. australia's big banks have come under pressure and recent years over a string of scandals the government had until now resisted the call for an independent inquiry but after a growing chorus of lawmakers in his conservative coalition vowed to support the demands australian prime minister malcolm turnbull finally agreed he said the inquiry would help restore confidence in the banking sector australia's banks stand accused of providing misleading financial advice avoiding life insurance payouts by using outdated medical definitions as well as rate rigging and failing to follow anti money laundering rules now australian prime minister malcolm turnbull is heeding calls by other parties as well as members of his own government to start an
11:22 am
official inquiry. and expect the highest levels of accountability and for the vast majority that's exactly what they receive. since the financial crisis however there have been examples of misconduct by financial institutions some of them extremely serious and that's demanded a response from the institutions themselves and from government australian treasurer scott morrison wanted to dissipate any fears about an inquiry by sending investors a positive message. astride his banks are unquestionably strong nothing that we've announced today china has this or gives any reason to question this on the part of the government the investigation will take about a year's time banks across the globe have been handed ever tougher regulations perhaps in australia those rules weren't tough enough the men's europe's largest industrial chose frankfurt over new york for the listing of health than is its
11:23 am
medical business which sells machines like m.r.i. scanners or x. ray machines to hospitals and doctors from the last quarter health than is was the largest of siemens nine divisions and it's also the most profitable one as part of the i.p.o. siemens is expected to sell a minority take of up to twenty five percent the listing of the stock exchanges that is to take place in the first half of next year. let's cross over to our financial correspondent cope in frankfurt what's the difference between issuing a share in new york. well garrett i mean you have lived here in frankfurt before as well why you need manhattan when you can have mine and here basically that's what investors here are telling me as well we are hearing that it was kind of like a close race between the new york stock exchange and frankfurt but at the end
11:24 am
siemens decided for frankfurt because. it's saying that now also with breakfast at frankfurt as a stock exchange is getting more and more important and also very interesting for that defense similar companies like healthy new years are also being traded here on the trading floor such as xen years and such as medical care as well the start off the i.p.o. by the well will be organized here by goldman sachs and the other company that because of rex it is moving many of their employees from london now to frankfurt. on a slightly different note zeman supposed to come under fire here in germany recently for cutting thousands of jobs in their gas turbine division is that justifiable while the company makes good profits. and that's a very interesting question get i was just looking at the numbers in two thousand and sixteen and seventeen earnings went up by eleven percent sales also by four
11:25 am
percent so of course there is more a question if the men's because they were just announcing that they were cut about seven thousand jobs here in germany many politicians have called this as a very irresponsible but of course you also have to take into consideration that the gas turbine business is really not any more as a strong also because of the energy turn hours here turn around here in germany so if these investors are telling me that they are understanding this decision but of course they also feel bad for all those people right now being very worried about their jobs. thank you very much. the world of football is looking to russia as some anticipation at the moment of murder that's right because the draw for the world cup group stage remade at the kremlin in moscow tomorrow that's the first of december and here's a look at the process remind you among the top cs we see the usual suspects minus of course italy which was eliminated and at the bottom
