12:03 pm
she's not fully in charge of the country because the military is still a very powerful institution it handed back power after running the country for several decades but it still retains control of very important ministries and has reserved twenty five percent of seats in parliament and the person in charge of the military operation in northern rakhine state is the military chief playing the u.n. high commissioner for refugees is calling for more aid to help the you were injured did you go pollen has more now from cox's bazar in bangladesh. well humanitarian organizations here say the camps and the dark conditions are finally getting the attention it needs the bangladeshi prime minister was here yesterday assess the situation and has promised aid but exactly what kind of relief the governments will be sending or supplying is not clear as clematis also expected to arrive they will have a look for themselves at the conditions in these camps and then report back to their individual countries the u.n.h.c.r.
12:04 pm
chief of operations is also going to be looking at these camps later in the day the u.n. h.c.r. has already. brought in about ninety one of metric tons of food and supplies for the refugees there on their way to caucasus bazaar and should be arriving any time during the day but vast those supplies are only for about one hundred twenty five thousand people far short of what is needed you have to remember that there were already refugees here before the latest influx so now around eight hundred thousand refugees are in need of food aid and any kind of relief now aid workers tell us are still another hundred thousand people waiting to cross the border there is also a concern about the fate of women and children coming in seventy percent of those coming in are women and children also of a lot of concern about women and girls who've been assaulted that their villages have been attacked and especially after they made this arduous journey over here
12:05 pm
they are in need of medical not only medical help but also psychological help. the president of the european commission says the e.u. will propose a new migrants deportation policy at the end of the month claude younger made the announcement at his annual state of the union address so not township works only thirty six percent of migrants in literature ration are sent back it is obvious that we have to consider a plea strengthened activities in this area this is the only way that europe will be able to show proof of solidarity with regard to the refugees who really need protection. let's bring in paris correspondent paul brennan for more on paul this migrant policy what are they planning on changing. well first of all it was a broad ranging speech by junk the president of the european commission it is state
12:06 pm
of the european union speeches annual speech and it was a whole range of issues but certainly migration was one of the standout parts of the speech that he delivered first of all he extolled the success stories of the european union's response to the migrant crisis saying that as a result of policies such as the e.u. turkey agreements which come into force during the past twelve months the number of irregular migrants arriving on the shores of europe had reduced by ninety seven percent i mean back in two thousand and fifteen year old call there was more than a million migrants and refugees arriving in europe by this time of the over the past twelve months it's reduced to just one hundred twenty five thousand and that's a result of a whole variety of different measures. junko was saying was it's important that europe is not made to be a fortress it should have an open door policy to genuine refugees those who are fleeing persecution and war but at the same time he raised concerns as you heard in
12:07 pm
the little clip that we've just played that just thirty six percent of those who are judged not to be genuine refugees just thirty six percent are actually eventually returned back to the countries that they originated from and that's not high enough so what he said was that by the end of the month he wanted to see new policies put into place in order to strengthen that kind of returns policy while at the same time providing a humane haven for those people with genuine claims strong comments on turkey as well what's your reading of those. yeah i mean the relationship between the european union and turkey has been deteriorating steadily over the past twelve twenty four months frankly and it was perhaps surprising just how strong junko was about turkey in his speech he said for example it basically ruled the behavior of turkey rules out the possibility of e.u. membership in the foreseeable future journalists he mentioned belong in newsrooms
12:08 pm
not in prisons there's been great concern about the clamp down of president. in turkey a against his political opponents particularly journalists who've been put into prison and what he said was the call i made to those people in power in turkey let our journalists go there was also one comment that he made stop insulting our member states comparing the heads of state in europe to fascists and nazis these are comments that were made by president during the recent referendum campaign he said europe is a continent of mature democracies i mean he said that the european hand is always outstretched to the turkish people but frankly the way the relationships are being going recently there is no gen no realistic prospect of turkey getting any closer to european union membership in the near future this was a state of the union the union of course is changing because of brics it any anything on that. yeah there's
12:09 pm
a significant amount of the end towards president it was from a rather optimistic point of view it was a note of regret that britain had chosen to exit the european union but what jhumpa juncker was saying was that it does not define the future of europe yes they will go ahead with twenty seven members instead of twenty eight they will be regret both in britain he expected and certainly among the members of the european union that remain but that the european union will continue to grow in future years and he's proposing a summit in romania significantly in romania because sorry for thirtieth of march two thousand and nineteen so basically an almost on deadline day he wants to see a summit of the remaining twenty seven to put out lay out the plans for how europe is going to push forward after breakfast has been finalized thanks paul. to north korea where the foreign ministry has denounced those new u.n. sanctions because of its nuclear program in
12:10 pm
a statement this is what the ministry says the resolution was fabricated by the u.s. 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 united states the first coming is us by diplomatically will make it to us cell phone to create pain is never experienced in its history u.s. president donald trump so the sanctions are just a very small step towards dealing with p.r. nuclear program. we had a vote yesterday on sanctions we think it's just another very small step. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing not not 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
12:11 pm
ultimately will have to happen under thomas with more now from seoul. well the south koreans have been reacting to the north korean statement this a the foreign ministry in pyongyang put out a statement earlier on wednesday condemning the resolution they called it illegal and evil hien as a provocation and they've said all the resolution will do will strengthen their resolve to follow this road the road towards nuclear missiles at a faster pace without the slightest diversion the south koreans have said that they want the north through to stop this cycle of provocation followed by sanction followed by further provocation or the flow they fear might be coming from the north with another missile or even a nuclear test in coming days they want to get the north koreans back to the negotiating table but at the same time the south koreans on wednesday have released footage of their own missile test carried out on tuesday or so they say an f. fifteen k. fighter jet flying over south korea dropping a missile from that plane which they implies independently and then land on
12:12 pm
a very precise targets on an island we're told of the south korean coast the south koreans here trying to make their point that they have missiles too and that they are ready to use those missiles to strike a precise location in north korea if they believe a threat from the north is imminent. ok we're going to focus in on the g.c.c. crisis for the next couple of minutes a meeting of the arab league in cairo descended into a shouting match with ministers from cattle and the four blockading countries trading accusations account for a diplomatic used quote some regimes are waging a media campaign against it that grew an angry response from egypt switched rejected the accusations baseless insults the heated exchange then descended into a full on squabble with the saudi arabian and cattery representatives telling each other to be quiet efforts to resolve the three month long dispute suffered a setback on saturday when saudi arabia suspended any potential dialogue with cattle it happened just after
12:13 pm
a phone call between leaders of the two countries suggested there might be a brain. through it's now one hundred days since four arab states cut trade and diplomatic ties with qatar accusing it of sponsoring terrorism a charge cats are strongly denies well one of the fallouts from the g.c.c. crisis has been its impact on the education of more than two hundred cattery students one student we spoke to was only a day away from finishing his degree when the gulf crisis began carolyn maloney reports now from. him used to feel sad is on a mission to save his education he studied for a bachelor's then a master's degree in your for more than six years at sharjah university in the u.a.e. he had an interview booked for his thesis on june sixth a day after the gulf crisis began and all carter is were ordered out of bahrain egypt saudi arabia and the u.a.e. you know i don't have any interest about the u.a.e. or any country because. when. more than six
12:14 pm
years and thus having so should be. thinking about you know i think should be studying in. any country. i can't get stick it's he needs from the u.a.e. to prove he's finished his studies he's unrolled it cash university in the hope that he'll still qualify however assessing these students without academic records is difficult the total number so far more than thirty three students in the four countries. that they met in the equivalency to make the course that the student already finished and that one of these country equivalent to make it quicker to their one of the university you must compare the topics the content katter's human rights committee says they've heard from thousands of students who say their education has been disrupted by the crisis at
12:15 pm
least seven hundred bahrain is a mirage he's in saudis have had to leave cattle university. and they were ordered to return home by their governments at score that in baghdad it will be in the minds of the new janelle ration that it's certainly been bought out of that blockade regardless of which party will the been in and which country you are and this is something that it is not easily been going to be you know. when the political decision you know of those pocket country will change universities have reopened after the summer holidays and just like last year will include students from all over the region and other parts of the worlds. students are registering here for the new academic year a cattle university among them a students from the blockading countries who decide to stay on or register despite the restrictions and there are categories being kicked out of other regional institutions that have to come back home to die hard to continue their degrees. student such as grateful for the opportunity to secure an education despite the

12:18 pm
sixteen degrees the maximum force on friday the temperature is recovering slightly for sydney and towards the west a bit more cloud will keep the temperatures twenty five in perth. but diagnosis that used to be a little room for the tourist cells and the immune system are battling what we're trying to do is energize the immune system it's trying to walk that can recognize the sound like a heat seeking missile finding the capsule sound that's exactly what you want to pretty amazing results and. you can get work your techno bestowing on all disease.

12:20 pm
malaki about that ongoing crisis i started by asking him for his latest assessment when it comes to the plight of the road into. all the humanitarian crisis in the wards especially that coming from the conflict it's neither political solution and we need also to to work on the political solution because if there is no political solution so the crisis will be continuous what we need here if we try we need to have this kind of humanity feeling about the people who are suffering every day especially the elderly and children around tens of thousand children. psychological and social support so you can imagine. the suffering that they they've got especially when they when they're traveling from our high into the willing to think that dish but this crisis pardon me for
12:21 pm
interrupting you right now and see this crisis is unique in one regard it's not it's not strep really it's a because these people of state at the moment they don't have identity papers that say they come from me in ma or they come from bangladesh or the income from say pakistan they're not like that so in that regard is there a risk here that the camps that they're living in in effect become permanent because nobody it would appeal wants to accept these people well this is where is the un agencies coming because we are registered. and you and you are in it and they all that are just ration are there. you know that is around three hundred seventy thousand being. i mean up to arrive for this moment so. to manage all that we need this
12:22 pm
kind of few and agencies who take care of them. once we deliver the aid and the food and to make them survive at least not just let them in the side of the road i think afterward we can talk about this but now we are in a crisis so we need to have to give them the food and we need to give them the shelter we need to also thinking about the children how can we also educate these children and provide them the educational system dictation system for them. iraqi government forces are preparing for what they hope is the final phase of their war against isis the group is surrounded and its last remaining stronghold that's the town of how we judge but some iraqis fear isis ideology will continue long after it's defeated is imran khan. this is the image the popular mobilization of forces in iraq want you to see. in control and ready to fight the
12:23 pm
shelob militias are surrounding the last remaining eisel stronghold of whole region p m f command is a confident the next battle will be swift and decisive. we shall retake how we judge just like we took mosul in tal afar we are now waiting for the orders to advance to who we are in the process of reinforcing our positions and fortifying our defense lines and i feel rats will be squashed by how. well confidence is high the military operation to recapture who ija is expected to be a complicated one there are two main front lines for the region here at west of the town and here at southwest. both battle fronts are linked by a series of watch towers and trenches. soldiers are clearing the surrounding desert by burning bushes to make it easier for them to move in their armored vehicles the battle won't just be fought by militias providing support will be the iraqi army
12:24 pm
counterterrorism forces and the federal police the kurdish peshmerga will also be involved but given tensions in nearby could cook which the kurds claim the government leaders in baghdad say is federal iraqi territory corp it will be complicated. there are mountain tensions and current 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 potential takeover 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 ice alone it is by the oppression of the sunni communities even if i still is the feed it cooks how for example the oppression of the sunni community continues by the shiite led government then we may see another wave of violence maybe worse than i so the ideology of i still
12:25 pm
would still resonate among the people combating the group's ideology is a concern for many but hey and abroad when iraqis say that the root causes for the rise of a group like i still haven't been addressed and there's also the issue of what to do with the fighters and their family members after all they are some of them iraqi citizens now there's no concrete plan from the kurdish old iraqi authorities for rehabilitation or even imprisonment leaving many to wonder if there is a concrete plan for post eisel iraq and al jazeera out of jail the caribbean islands took the brunt of hurricane irene on the island of barbuda the government is estimating ninety five percent of the buildings were damaged john home and as more. roger has a right back home this move caribbean island of devastated by hurricane needed he's heading to his house to find out if it survived there's nothing. there's nothing
