8:02 am
out of new york north korea's foreign minister re young ho addressed reporters. last weekend trump claimed that at leadership wouldn't be around much longer and ends at last he declared a war no country or do you guys the more that given the fact this comes from someone who is currently holding the seat of the united states presidency this is clearly a declaration of war his latest comments go further than his address to the u.n. general assembly just two days earlier and he was clearly responding to president trump's tweet after that speech in which he referred to little rocket men and warned they may not be around much longer but the white house dismissed his suggestion it was a declaration of war. we've not declared war on north korea and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd real also referred to a u.s. show of force which took place just before he spoke on saturday u.s. fighter jets and b. one bombers flying close to north korea's eastern coast but still over

international waters. since the u.s. declared war in our country we will have every right to make ken a measures including the right to shoot down the united states strategic even when they're not yet inside the airspace of our country it's never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft when it's over international waters our goal is still the same we continue to seek the peaceful the nuclearization of the korean peninsula in a briefing to south korea's parliamentary intelligence committee the national intelligence service said north korea did not take any countermeasures in response to that flight of u.s. bombers but has since moved planes and beefed up the fences along the east coast it said the u.s. military disclosed the flight path because the north koreans apparently didn't detect the aircraft and what is the use of a show of force if the target doesn't realize it's happening. south korea is putting a strong emphasis on
8:04 am
a peaceful solution there cannot be another war on the korean peninsula. the consequences would be devastating not just for the korean peninsula but for northeast asia and indeed the whole international community south korean intelligence reports that soldiers on the opposite side of the border have been ordered to report to higher commands before taking any action suggesting that despite its tough talk north korea would also prefer to avoid confrontation cathy know that al-jazeera seoul the u.s. says it's not seeking to overthrow the north korean government they also rejected pyongyang's characterization of president trump's tweet we have not declared war on north korea and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd it's never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft when it's over international waters our goal is still the same we continue to seek the peaceful nuclearization of the korean peninsula that's our focus doing that through both the most maximum
8:05 am
economic and diplomatic pressure is possible at this point. iraq is refusing to hold talks with the kurdish regional government about the results of monday's controversial secession referendum the iraqi prime minister called the vote unconstitutional during a televised address to polls closed. hundreds took to the streets to celebrate the end of votes in both the poll is expected to produce a comfortable win for the process session campaign but it is a non-binding vote. made isn't out of bail for us out i know it's early morning there but then the sense of of the mood is there any buyer's remorse given the overnight flow of criticism. no i would say no and as you said the results are still not out but really throughout the day yesterday and late into the night goodwill ready celebrating many would say that already the
8:06 am
fact that there they went to vote and they expressed themselves for them was already some sort of a victory i think everybody years quite confident that the yes vote will pass probably now as a matter of knowing what percentage of kurds said yes and which percentage said no there were some people who are who were skeptical about the referendum not because they are against the idea of eventually having a kurdish state but because some thought that maybe this was not the right time considering all what is happening in iraq or what's happening just at the borders of the semi autonomous region at the moment this war against some were also very worried about the threats of neighboring countries and of it's coming out of baghdad and then there's also political rivalry there and some people who are maybe
8:07 am
. living in the. sort of north east of this region this political strongholds of. movement sort of the political rivals of the p.d.p. and must be well they were feeling that this referendum was one that was basically to do this for the legacy of was supposed to step down in november and many were feeling that it was more about him than about the future of iraq's kurds but those are a minority is now a matter of when the results come out. they have seventy two hours to announce those results then people would probably celebrate even more so as you mentioned the result seems like a formality to this point the question is what happens next we know the iraqi central government is saying it's not going to negotiate over the result of this
8:08 am
and i think there's a big question for everyone now if you remember to the runoff to this referendum. to opposing points of view from coming out from air bill and baghdad bill here say we will hold a vote and then we will continue negotiating for baghdad as long as it takes before taking any further steps baghdad has always said no we first have negotiations then you hold your vote and actually at the last hour really there was a high level delegation that went from year to baghdad but those talks really reached an impasse and after that we saw masoud barzani very defiant saying well the vote will go ahead despite all criticism is just an opinion expressed by the kurdish people at this point and seeing all the rhetoric coming out of baghdad calling this vote unconstitutional also parliament asking prime minister body to take certain steps like deploying iraki forces to do so called disputed territories
8:09 am
that took part in the vote yesterday all of that is something people here are monitoring closely and many would tell you they did expect that no one would accept this referendum especially in the region a lot of disappointment perhaps because of the reaction of the international community but these are going to be very very difficult times. thanks for the. now israel radio is reporting there's been a gala tack in the occupied west bank it's reporting a palestinian opened fire on three israelis near the heart of settlement near jerusalem a palestinian was reportedly shot will bring you more details on this as we get them the first refugees to be resettled under a controversial australian policy of flown out of papua new guinea bound for the united states a group of more than twenty men there'd been an australian run prison camps on manor silent the resettlement is part of an agreement between australia and the

players coaches and even some mona's have joined in protest against tackling plaza knelt during the national anthem rob reynolds has the latest. president donald trump's feud with professional american football players moved from stadiums on sunday to the u.s. capitol on monday to step what he said about these men. and putting a bill in these mostly like men but also like. they use the term. s.o.b . is beneath. should be the need the mits of the president of the united states of america the dispute began last year when san francisco quarterback collin capper nick initially refused to stand while the anthem was played capper nick said he was protesting police brutality and the killings of african-americans by police officers at that son of a. last week trump used
8:12 am
a vulgar epithet to denounce players who also refused to stand during the song urged team owners to summarily fire them and then called on fans to boycott games of teams that refused to do so but on sunday hundreds of players either refused to stand linked arms in solidarity or declined to come on the field until the anthem was over people say it's encouraging patriotic but it's unpatriotic of the president respected are the right players in other sports also knelt during the anthem several team owners voiced support for players exercising their right of free speech as did democrats in congress people are forgetting like collins happening did it from the beginning it was not to be disrespectful of the flag or of america it was about a person. and then rights and also people being killed in the streets black and
8:13 am
brown the white house fired back it's always appropriate for the president of this country to promote our flag to promote our national anthem and ask people to respect that some football fans saw the quarrel as an unnecessary distraction we're here to see a game that's what we're trying to do just watch a sporting event you know from our everyday lives and just relax and have a good time the anthem also known as the star-spangled banner was written in one thousand fourteen to celebrate a victory over invading british forces near baltimore it was made the official national anthem in one thousand nine hundred thirty one it celebrates the american flag which plays an outsized role in the u.s. compared with most other countries and a patriotic symbol those symbols are meant to promote unity but they are now tokens of division further incited by a president who seems to revel in controversy robert oulds al-jazeera

8:18 am
a settlement near the israeli village of gauche north of jerusalem not far from jerusalem and that this took place as the works going on one entrance to this illegal israeli settlement in the occupied west bank and that as he came in with a group of palestinian workers he opened fire we're hearing that there are three israelis who have been killed in the attack before wounded and that the gunman himself was also shot in the course of the incident but that is as much information as we have but now we are expecting to hear more obviously. as police and other security forces start to confirm exactly what happened really small details all right we'll leave it there thanks so much high for. cambodia's opposition leader comes so cars being prevented from appearing in court to fight charges of treason

politicians analyze the results of sunday's election many are wondering how a far right groups surged in the third place german chancellor angela merkel won her fourth term the anti immigrant party seized one million votes from her conservatives they were barbara visited the city of dresden and find out how from. the beginning he's just twenty five but he's already risen up the party structure julian visa and joined the f.d.a. or alternative for germany when it started four years ago now it's grown to become the third largest party in parliament it's also being called dangerous and democratic and racist as. i see the f.t. as a respectable conservative party with plenty of liberal ideas it's going to great lengths to represent this if you point in the dry theory line between itself and far right attitudes that's the only way it can be successful. here in dazed and in eastern germany the party has solid support in fact in this region saxony the a.f.d.
8:24 am
received more votes than any other party frank born locally just after the second world war says many people here feel neglected by the traditional parties but the a.f.p. has also been boosted by chancellor merkel's decision to let in hundreds of thousands of refugees two years ago god period b i n one i think asylum seekers and immigrants are treated better than people on low incomes and bring that out into the open and given the a.f.p. success here you'd think it would be easy to find people who voted for it but you'd be wrong quite a while trying to find an a.f.p. supporter will explain their choice to us but we simply haven't found anybody who like mitt on camera to voting for the party but what about in the working class suburbs here we did find one unashamed voter. i feel left behind barely never understands me that was disturbing me. this couple say they didn't
8:25 am
vote but think many people back to the f.t. for reasons other than immigration against i think it was just a protest yes and when al jazeera asked foreigners living here if the success worried them this also was typical. and that whatever happens i think germany will remain a good to me a credit country it will be your main towards refugees whoever is in power and that's certainly a hope shared by a majority of german voters what's less clear is how much pressure the newly strengthened day f.d.a. will exert on the government to toughen its laws with al-jazeera dresden the head of mexico's search and rescue effort he says is unlikely more survivors are we found after last week's seven point one magnitude earthquake more than three hundred people died when dozens of buildings collapsed heidi joe castro reports. the sign reads adrian you are
