8:04 am
safety in her country let's get more now from florence louise she joins us from young gone in me and florence any more details emerging as to why and sang suchi has canceled her trip to the u.n. later this month. well two spokesmen have confirmed that she won't be attending the general assembly meeting in new york one from the foreign affairs ministry and another from on san suu g.'s political party now one of them said that it was never confirmed that she was going to be at that meeting anyway although she did attend the one in new york last year now another said perhaps she had more pressing matters to deal with and said it definitely wasn't because she's afraid of dealing with criticism and she has come under a lot of fire recently not only for her government's handling of the crisis in northern rakhine state but also for failing to speak up on behalf of the rule hinges now and don't forget it took only two weeks before she made any public comments on the matter and even then she said this was a longstanding problem that dated back to pre-colonial times and she asked for the
8:05 am
world's patience in allowing her government to deal with the matter and then she finally relented a day later and she said yes myanmar has a duty to protect everyone in this country but she made no direct reference to the rule hinder who have been fleeing in large numbers to bangladesh and she also said that the world that this was a this was a joy to defend at the government's position that this is that is dealing with. terrorism a counterterrorism operation now some analysts however have pointed out that her hands are tied because of the political situation in myanmar the military is still an extremely powerful institution it ruled the country for decades before it finally agreed to hand over some power but it has retained power as well by reserving twenty five percent of seats in parliament taining control of important ministries including defense border affairs and home affairs so it's the military that's really in charge of this operation particularly its military chief lane and
8:06 am
just briefly florence the bangladeshi prime minister says that myanmar should take their nationals back is that going to happen. well the myanmar government's position is this yes we will take our citizens back but doesn't consider the real hinge or ethnicity since no do they hold national identity cards no they hold instead national verification cards which means their status is undetermined a government spokesman told al-jazeera yes we will allow refugees back into the country provided their documents are in order so he means if by documents he means id cards then while the engine won't be allowed back in if he means national verification cards then yes there's a chance but what are the chances that people who are fleeing for their lives have watched their homes and their villages and their possessions burned down would have these documents on them and that's look at how the myanmar has treated the is treating the four hundred thousand were injured who are already living in bangladesh before the military crackdown began they fled to bangladesh in waves
8:07 am
over the last few decades to escape persecution myanmar hasn't taken them back and the myanmar government's position is this the real hinge or who are referred to as been garley in myanmar because to imply they are migrants from bangladesh don't belong in this country florence thank you north korea's foreign ministry has denounced the new sanctions approved by the un security council on monday in a statement the ministry says the resolution was fabricated by the us employing all sorts of despicable and vicious means and methods pyongyang also promised to redouble efforts to increase its strength to safeguard the country's sovereignty its ambassador to the u.n. is threatening consequences for the u.s. the forthcoming misuse by d.p. article. will make of the us so full to create pain is never experienced in its history the us president donald trump says the new u.n. sanctions are only a very small step towards dealing with pyongyang's nuclear program. we had
8:08 am
a vote yesterday on sanctions we think it's just another very small step. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing the big i don't know if it has any impact but certainly it was nice to get a fifteen to nothing vote but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen. you know that joins us now from the south korean capital seoul cathy so yet more defiant language out of north korea today yes in the statement from the foreign ministry calling the sanctions a heinous provocation the sanctions of course are designed as a punishment for north korea's latest and most powerful nuclear test and also designed to try to deprive north korea of some of the hard currency it gets from its exports to try to force it back to the negotiating table but instead the foreign ministry is saying that it will redouble its efforts to continue developing
8:09 am
missiles and nuclear technology and for its part south korea's unification ministry says that it is going to wait and see when it comes to what north korea will do next because it says that so far it has issued this statement from the foreign ministry but in the past what we have seen is a cycle of provocations from north korea followed by sanctions followed by more provocation so south korea is urging north korea to stop that cycle and return to the go shooting table it seems unlikely though with this language coming out of north korea that that is going to happen i'm kathy president trump says the sanctions are only a small step so while they're likely to have any effect any impact on the ground. well part of the reason that these are being seen as a small step is because a draft u.s. resolution was circulated before the vote which showed many that there are war or more stringent method more stringent. proposals pardon
8:10 am
me coming out of the us what the u.s. really wanted was a complete embargo on oil that's coming largely from china that would cut off some of the oil supply that would be going to the north korean military because it was cleared to reporters who had seen this draft resolution and to the international community that the final result did not go as far as the u.s. had hoped it is being seen as not going far enough and acknowledged by president trump as a small step so what south korea had been saying was that it was important that there was a consensus on this resolution that it was important that china and russia signed up but clearly what donald trump wants to see is more stringent measures and he's warning that there may be more to come what they really want to do is cut off north korea's ability to continue to develop this missile and nuclear technology but china does not want to cut off all of the oil going into north korea because it
8:11 am
does not want to destabilize the regime there and risk refugees flowing into its border and risk a unified korea with u.s. troops on its border dan cathy thank you lots more still to come here in al-jazeera including the death toll. rises officials across the caribbean and the u.s. struggle for a full assessment of the storm's damage more than. with . hello there we've got a few bits of cloud of the drifting their way across the northern parts of iran at the moment showing up on the satellite picture here just edging their way eastwards maybe giving one or two showers nothing more than that still the temperatures in toronto can to around thirty two degrees on wednesday before the south is far hotter than that still in kuwait it's been very very hot for the past few months forty seven degrees the maximum there on wednesday no real change for us even as we

government leaders in baghdad say is federal iraqi territory corp it will be complicated. there are mountain tension and sinker cook caused by the sectarian dimension that is making it boil and might lead to the deterioration of security situation leading to a standoff among the different forces. despite the patel. take over the last remaining eisen stronghold in iraq the group's ideology will not be completely wiped out and it will remain a challenge. the problem is not with eisel alone it is by the oppression of the sunni communities even if i still is the fee to incur cooke's how we for example the oppression of the sunni community continues by the shia led government then we may see another wave of violence maybe worse than i saw the ideology of i still would still resonate among the people. in the groups ideology is a concern for many both here and abroad many iraqis say that the root causes for
