the u.s. mainland president donald trump says new sanctions will be imposed on the north but support for the u.s. position doesn't appear to be forthcoming from china and russia from the u.n. is mike hanna. for the ninth time this year the security council gathers to discuss yet another crisis centered on north korea an emergency session called for by the u.s. japan and south korea and a grave warning from the french representative this test is another confirmation that the north korean threat has changed dramatically in a few months both in scope and here the threat has shifted from being regional to global. the u.s. ambassador makes a direct plea to china to place greater economic pressure on its ally and neighbor we need china to do the right. president trot called chinese president xi this morning and told him that we have come to the point that china must cut off the oil
6:03 am
from north korea that would be a pivotal step in the world's effort to stop this international pariah but no such pledge from china instead it called again on the u.s. to explore a free for free scenario in which north korea would slow its missile program if the u.s. and south korea lowered their military posture on the peninsula this position supported by russia the militant group of what we proposed a solution based along the principle of suspension for suspension which in visions of d.p. r. k. stopping missile tests while at the same time the u.s. and south korea decreasing the scale of their military exercises this in turn will pave the way for the principles of peaceful coexistence and peaceful discussions between washington and pyongyang but the says being repeatedly and vehemently ruled out by the u.s. and clearly while the council is united in its condemnation of the latest missile launch it remains divided on how to respond the question now with the missile
6:04 am
testing continues while the u.s. continue to seek solutions with its security council partners or decide to go it alone mike hanna al-jazeera united nations and adrian brown joins me live now from beijing adrian so how realistic is it to expect china to cut off the oil and sever diplomatic ties with north korea. look i think in the short term there and there is no likelihood of china cutting off the oil or indeed severing diplomatic relations china still maintains a very large embassy in the north korean capital and of course there are thousands of chinese nationals living and working in north korea as well as people going there to holiday i think what we're seeing at the moment though is a growing realisation a creeping realisation here in china that perhaps the united states might be
6:05 am
prepared to go it alone and of course china believes that only diplomacy ultimately can resolve this crisis but it's clear from what we're hearing from the united states from the united nations that solving this by diplomacy is really futile thinking so china i guess will try to keep up the pressure on pe anyang but you know any suggestion any belief that we had that you know china really had influence over north korea really is beginning to sway i mean just a few weeks ago china sent a highly ranking diplomat to the north korean capital but he didn't get to meet the north korean leader now in the past whenever a senior chinese official went to pyongyang he's always guaranteed a meeting with the dear leader that didn't happen this time it was another slap in the face for china from the north koreans now getting back to oil darren we know that china back in september agreed to cut oil supplies to two million barrels
6:06 am
a year now the united states believes that up until then the chinese had been sending up to six thousand barrels of oil products a day to north korea now about what trump now wants is for china to cut off everything the oil the food everything that it sends to north korea and remember there's still an awful lot that the north receives from china i've been to the city of done wrong many times that faces north korea and over that friendship bridge you see lorries trundling backwards and for. it's now we're told that the friendship bridge is going to be closed for several days for repairs apparently at the request of north korea also we're told there and that china has now suspended all stopped. china services from beijing to pyongyang but that i think is more symbolic than meaningful or a danger and we have to leave it there adrian brown there in beijing thank you now the u.a.e. has dismissed allegations by the former egyptian prime minister ahmed shafik that
6:07 am
he's being stopped from traveling. he's being blocked from leaving the u.a.e. after he announced plans to run in egypt's presidential election next year if he had left egypt after he lost against a muslim brotherhoods mahmoud morsi in the twenty eleven election he's been a strong critic of egyptian president at the fatah sisi. my fellow egyptian citizens i have announced my intention to run in the presidential election and i was planning to start a tour amongst egyptian communities abroad before going back to egypt in the next few days however i was surprised to find out i'm prevented from leaving the u.a.e. for reasons i don't understand and i'm not willing to understand i've often stated my appreciation for the u.a.e. for hosting me however i reject any intervention in egypt's affairs by preventing me from participating in a constitutional right well sahara zis is a professor of law at rutgers university she says she has
6:08 am
a strong following including those in the military. i think it's reasonable to assume that the egyptian government is publicly saying it's a role behind the scenes because the u.a.e. and egypt are very strong allies right now particularly with sisi at the helm and so the question is why wouldn't sisi want to come back to egypt to run for the presidency and i think the answer is by clear which is the sisi does not want to serious contender he certainly needs a contender but one that is known to be weak and will not win the election but simply create the appearance that the next presidential election will be competitive and shafique will be a very serious contender if you look back at the two thousand and twelve elections for example there were thirteen and then nine candidates and sure figure ended up being of the final two or so that shows that he was able to have enough popularity to be a finalist and he barely lost to morsi and one of the reasons is because he is very
6:09 am
well connected to what is now known as the deep state in egypt and military is currently at the head of the state so his connections and his reputation with the military is one that none of the other contenders would have and he is likely to leverage any existing divisions within the military and to leverage popular discontent with sisi particular on economic issues because inflation is at thirty percent unemployment is at thirty percent for youth so he will leverage that against sisi to perhaps even win the election u.s. president donald trump has attacked the british prime minister of tourism a for her condemnation of his anti islam retreats trump said three anti muslim video some a far right british group to his more than forty million followers a spokesman for may called trump's actions wrong but this is what the u.s. commander in chief replied with to resume a don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that's taking place within the united kingdom we're doing fine was in jordan has more from
6:10 am
washington d.c. . a wednesday the u.s. president donald trump was roundly criticized for reach waiting three videos which he claimed showed muslim violence against christians and others who do not share the muslim faith the british prime minister through a spokesperson condemned the reach weeding of these videos which had been disseminated by a far right wing group or neo nazi group known as britain first the message from number ten downing was that this was inappropriate and it was nothing more than simply disseminating hate and bigotry around the world of course donald trump then fired back late on wednesday against the prime minister to resign may essentially addressing her on twitter and saying that she needed to pay attention to the own country her own country's problems dealing with what he called radical islamic terrorism inside the u.k.
6:11 am
that of course is not going down well with a number of people on both sides of the atlantic not only have a number of republican senators condemned the remarks and called on president trump to retract those comments but the communities minister in the u.k. sodje job it is now saying that what mr trump has said is reprehensible and that he would use his own position as a public figure to try to fight against this sort of dissemination of bigotry and hatred and of course it is worth pointing out that at the beginning of donald trump's tenure as president there was active discussion in the u.k. about inviting him to visit the country on a state visit and at the time minister job it was saying that people should keep an open mind and not just stand against a trial visit outright but now in light of the dissemination of these videos that have been supported by far right wing groups mr job it's june has very much changed

two of the biggest weapons in the fight against malaria just ask these african mothers visiting a clinic ninety pregnant they have to take care of money thinking that will some food i would tell you to remember that one area and they have to give all the roles i fear and live among. the mosquito borne disease is a ferocious foe despite global eradication efforts around four hundred fifty thousand people died last year. the world health organization or w.h.o. says the number of infections increased by one million here to twenty fifteen did catch us off guard although we have noticed an increase for the last three years we thought that the increasing use of insecticide treated nets as well as the increased use of tests for malaria would decline it would cause
6:22 am
a decline in the highest number of malaria deaths was in nigeria the democratic republic of congo and india the w.h.o. says more funding will save lives as will a change in treatment methods the number of people access treatment is not as high as it should be we have made certain assumptions and yet almost forty percent of children on the five who should be getting treatment i'm not getting it at all the w.h.o. is hoping to reverse the rising trend by ensuring people have access to preventive measures and treatment both in public and private health sector natasha going to. bali's international airport has reopened after winds blew away volcanic ash from mount agung the volcano has become increasingly active over the past week and scientists say the threat of an eruption is not yet over about one hundred thousand
