8:22 pm
that? >> i'm very deeply concerned about that news and north korea is continuing to provoke the international community by testing ballistic missiles to secure the council most recently had adopted by consensus most comprehensive sanction measures. i urge again most strongly that north korea should abide by all relevance to the resolutions and they should do much more for the well-being of their own people. i'm urging them to heed to the course of the international community, to become a responsible member of the international community. >> what steps will you take, sir, to be able to ensure that the united nations, in fact, plays a very active role in making sure that kim jong-un is not able to carry these measures out? >> the united nations has
8:23 pm
already taken five sctioned measures. it is important that all international committee members should fully cooperate, so that these sanction measures will be fully implemented. it is important that neighbors countries, that china and all other countries should fully cooperate with this. >> have you felt that china has been supportive and cooperative in trying to deter kim jong-un from taking such measures? >> yeah, they have been full y cooperating. and i'm grateful and count on chinese leadership's continuing support to, first of all, reduce the tension on the korean peninsula. and advise strongly to north korean leaders, so that they heed and abide by international security council resolution. >> mr. secretary general, this week, we're talking a lot about a u.n. security council resolution that passed that sanctioned israel.
8:24 pm
now, there are a lot of people who say the timing of of it was very interesting. these sanctions against israel that passed, i believe, 14-0 or unanimously, the u.s. did not block that sanction, that resolution. your thoughts on whether that will help peace in the region or create more strife in the region. >> or be destructive? >> it is significant that the security council has taken a resolution, saying that settlement is illegal. the international court of justice has also made it clear that settlement is illegal, and i have been urge israeli authorities to abide by international norms and regulations. they must sit down together with the leaders to discuss and to realize a two-state solution. there is another alternative to this two-state solutions. >> but doesn't this embolden the
8:25 pm
palestinians to say, look, i have this u.n. resolution. i have political currency to push back against israel. >> does it create an unfair advantage? >> it is important that support, palestinians and israelis, in accordance with all resolutions, sit down together. they have identified all the problems. they are sitting on the table. it's a matter of choice, with a firm commitment to make sure that palestinians and israelis live together, side by side, in peace and security. that's the main, main course of two-state solutions. >> let's also ask you about -- we're about to have a new president sworn in, president-elect donald trump will be the 45th president of the united states. he has made some very public comments, very consistent the
8:26 pm
whole time saying that he feels that the united nations has not been strong enough in terms of its role in the world and said he would like to see them, in fact, do more. what are your thoughts about his opinion? >> the united nations, who is responsible, most responsible i of the world and also make sure that everybody's human rights are expected and nobody is left behind. that's very important. i count on the president-elect, donald trump, when he's sworn in, will work closely with the united nations for international peace and security. >> so very interestingly, just now, president-elect donald trump tweeted, he said, the u.n. is a place where a bunch of people get together and have a good time. so sad. your comment? >> the united nations is very
8:27 pm
committed to work together with all international community members, particularly with the united states. u.s., u.n. share same goals and ideas. and united states can play crucially important role in this time of turbulence, i count on, okay, on new president of the united states to lead by example and lead this role with strong commitment to international peace. >> but, you know, in the u.s. puts up about 20 to 22% of the u.n. budget and substantially more on some of the other u.n. initiatives. you know -- >> what about other countries paying their fair share? >> some would say that the united states is paying too much of the u.n. budget? >> well, we appreciate the united states being the largest donor, supporter of the regular
8:28 pm
budget. 28% of peacekeeping operations. therefore, u.s. role is crucially important. that is why everybody in the world is looking to the united states leadership. and i'm sure of that the president donald trump will work closely with my successor. >> very good. sir, thank you so much. >> thank you so much and a pleasure having you ear on the fox news channel. >> ban ki-moon, thank you. >> secretary general of the u.n., he'll be doing ball toss today. next up, we'll take a moment to honor our vets. the people that serve this country day in and day out. a veteran and her family get the surprise of their lives. >> and the countdown to midnight continues. we're just over 30 minutes. right around 30 minutes away. stay with us. >> hi, everybody. 2016 was quite something, wasn't it? from our debate in january to the iowa caucuses to the conventions to the debates to election night. 2017, we have inauguration and
