in jerusalem in may trump has been holding talks with israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu at the white house that says meeting in a year as committee to help control ports. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and u.s. president donald trump smiled broadly in their white house meeting despite both being embroiled in scandal netanyahu wasted no time turning the attention to the u.s. president for his decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital to see president remembered by our people throughout the ages netanyahu is in washington in advance of his address on tuesday before the largest israeli lobby group in the u.s. a pack but netanyahu made it clear he was also seeking u.s. support for what he sees as israel's greatest security challenge to cops. were. iraq. is not giving up its nuclear ambitions it is came out of this nuclear
deal and rich both netanyahu and trump have made no secret of their loathing of the twenty fifteen agreement agreed on by the u.s. and the other world powers with iran to limit tehran's nuclear program both believe the agreements duration is too short and is weakened by the fact it does not address iran's ballistic missile program. there's also shared concern over what they believe is iran's rising influence and a desire for a permanent presence in syria israelis. support against iraq. talk. very very little the u.s. president has also talked about striking a peace deal between the israelis and palestinians trumps jerusalem declaration in december infuriated palestinian leaders they're now calling on the international
community to negotiate a deal not the u.s. a point the president seems to have ignored the palestinians i think you are wanting to come back to the table for a very bad. if they don't you don't have peace if you don't have peace if they don't you don't have peace and that's a possibility also i'm not saying it's going to happen indeed donald trump's mideast peace efforts are almost non-existent still he said on monday he may now himself go to israel to open the new us embassy in jerusalem kimberley hellcat al jazeera washington. canada's prime minister justin trudeau has called the us president donald trump to express his concern about suggestions of tariffs on steel imports the proposed duties have been the subject of the latest talks to renegotiate the north american trade agreement which have wrapped up in mexico city john hall and as. we lost over the even from three thousand kilometers away
washington d.c. president trump managed to open the seventh round of nafta negotiations we are renegotiating nafta as i said i work and if we don't make a deal all terminate now after that would be i would imagine one of the points that we're going to go she said it will be tariffs on steel for canada and for mexico. he'd already announced plans to impose tariffs on steel imports from around the world that kind of durham mexico felt that as the u.s. is partners in the nafta free trade bloc they should be accepted canada was especially displeased should restrictions be imposed on canadian steel and aluminum products canada will take appropriate response of measures to defend our trade interests and our workers they've been decimated president trump indicated he could be flexible if mix going canada capitulates another sticking points in the negotiations they include an increase a go to parts made to the us benefits can labor standards to make the u.s.
work force will competitive and the clues said big nafta every five years common ground on those issues has been extremely hard to find us has indicated that the time is running out president trumps announcement is made already tough and slow moving the goetia actions even more difficult unless canada or mexico give the united states exactly what it wants the future seems uncertain for nafta john home and how does it or mexico city north korean state media are reporting leader kim jong un wants to advance relations and ease military tensions with south korea. after meeting with officials from solar banquet dinner kim jong un hosted the south korean envoys at the reeling workers' party headquarters in pyongyang a high level south korean delegation as traveled north for two days of talks focused on averting a clear conflict of pride joins us live from seoul tell us about what's happened since they've been then what they've agreed to up. i think this is probably going
to be seen as one of the biggest achievement so far is this banquet with kim jong un the first time in fact that kim jong un since he took power has met with south korean officials he hosted the banquet along with his wife when it was announced that a satisfactory agreement had been reached on moving forward with some type of summit with moon jay and the president of south korea this was always one of the main intentions of this mission we are waiting though for more details details are very scant and we are relying largely on the official news agency out of north korea and those south korean journalists have been allowed to accompany this mission they are having more meetings today choose day before returning to seoul this evening when we can expect more details they'll be having a meeting with president mungy and reporting back to him and then reporting to the
media jane and clearly a summit like this would be incredibly rare. that's right and a big step forward i mean the last summit was in twenty seven the last one before that was in the year two thousand in some respects the stakes now for summits are a lot higher given the advances in north korea's nuclear and missile programs jay and of south korea says that his intention all along in getting into this dialogue of having a summit is ultimately the denuclearization of the korean peninsula but as many critics point out north korea seems to be so close to having a long range nuclear missile there's very little chance or it's almost inconceivable that they would give any ground on the nuclear question so it does beg the question what kind of summit would this be it would critics argue that would it would be based on such flimsy grounds so vague an understanding that it
really wouldn't be worth having it would just be mainly a cosmetic exercise a grip and grin as they say in the trade and also we are waiting to see any details about negotiations or the creating the conditions for negotiations between north korea and the united states that was the other stated intention of this mission and on that subject we have heard so far nothing at all thank you for that rob. still ahead on al-jazeera. i'm waiting for you on board the u.s. craft carrier the col vinson which is on a symbolic visit to vietnam but he's also carrying a message for china. leaked e-mails u.a.e. linked to businessman and his suspected plan to get america's top diplomat fired.

monday the two sides are also discussing a possible summit often made by the north. the senate in the u.s. state of florida has passed a bill that would place restrictions on sales of assault rifles and allow teachers to be armed did was in response to high school mass shooting last month that left seventeen people dead the bill still needs the house approval and the governor's signature. of former russian spies christie. ill in hospital in england after reportedly been exposed to an unknown substance sixty six year old so i guess good pole and a woman in the thirty's are both in intensive care they were found unconscious on a bench at a shopping center in the town of souls very scruple has been living in the u.k. since twenty ten after being freed from a russian jail in a spy swap this has not been declared as a counter terrorism incident and we would urge people not to speculate however i
must emphasize that we retain an open mind and we continue to review this position we have access to a wide range of specialist resources and services that are helping us to understand what we are on dealing with at this time the focus at this moment in trying to stop what has caused these people to become critically ill and we are working with partners to prioritise this diagnosis and ensure that they receive the most appropriate and timely treatment. charlie angela has more from london. police here are calling this a major incident and the two individuals are in critical condition in intensive care where hospital workers are working on diagnosing and treating them as quickly as possible the sixty six year old man has been identified as surrogate of a russian national and former colonel in the russian military intelligence who in two thousand and six was convicted on charges of espionage and jailed for thirteen years it seems that he had been supplying u.k.
intelligence service m i six with the identity of undercover russian agents operating in europe but in twenty ten he was released as part of a spy swap deal orchestrated with the united states he was flown to the u.k. and is since been living here probably keeping a low profile and given a new identity by m i six or this use of an unknown known substance does remind us of the case of alexander litvinenko a former russian spy turned british citizen who in two thousand and six was poisoned here in london it turned out he had been exposed to radioactive polonium he became gravely ill and died three weeks later not before accusing president putin of his murder a government inquiry take that took place under the u.k. authority found that president putin had probably sanctioned the murder of alexander litvinenko and that incident led to
a souring of relations between russia and u.k. obviously this incident it's too early to tell if we're looking at something similar but the speculation is there. leaked e-mails suggest a businessman with links to the united arab emirates reportedly tried to convince the us president to sack his secretary of state the e-mails seen by the b.b.c. found that. major trump fundraiser wanted rex tillerson fired for not supporting the against cattle in the current blockade according to the emails boy he advised trump to continue his support for the u.a.e. and saudi arabian warned him against getting involved in a round with cattle he also told trump to fire to listen at a quote politically convenient time to listen as reporters repeatedly criticize the as c. and land blockade the u.a.e. saudi arabia bahrain and egypt imposed on cats nine months ago this latest revelation comes at a time when another white house regular and u.a.e.
adviser george nader has reportedly been questioned in the ongoing probe into trump's twenty sixteen election campaign some a shot is the middle east studies program coordinator at the university of oklahoma he says the latest leak is an indication of further disarray within the trump administration. and not only is muhammad and someone going to washington but also another trump central player jared questionnaire the son in law has recently had his security clearance downgraded and of course it's thought that he has also because he is so close with mohamed bin solomon and also had good relations with the u.a.e. been another person who has been whispering anti qatar things in president trump's ear and i don't fortunately again you know this blockade now and the actions of saudi arabia and the u.a.e. has lasted about nine months and president from all over recently has made some
more conciliatory gestures does not seem willing at the moment to put pressure on all of the parties particularly saudi arabia in the u.a.e. to find some reconciliation or resolution whereas someone sitting here in the united states watching misadministration on a daily basis it is incredibly chaotic even in you know nonbeliever bill amount of disarray seeming to be unusable chairs of individuals occupying positions and then of course either forced out were chased out of office because of scandal so this is you know to put it kind of mildly a very unusual american administration and i would say an incompetent one with regards to middle east and many other matters saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin solomon has met with egypt's cup ticket pope in cairo during a three day tour of egypt is not supposed to be official has been to the spiritual center of the egyptian orthodox christian community it's also the first trip abroad
for mohammed bin some months since becoming heir apparent last year he is due to meet leaders in the u.k. and u.s. later this month. the senate in the state of florida has passed and your bill that would place new restrictions on sales of assault rifles and allow some teachers to be on there was a response to high school mass shooting last month that killed more than seventeen people but is only going to get reports the bill still needs the house approval and the governor's signature. outside florida state capitol young voices that are driving calls for gun reform continue to put pressure on politicians this is the bill that addresses school safety inside the chamber the marjorie stoneman douglas high school public safety act cleared the senate it includes money for school security mental health and raising the age limit for buying a rifle to twenty one for democrats who are in the minority here it doesn't go far enough is it appropriate to slap the name of martyrs domon douglas on the entire
bill or shouldn't we be passing a bill without their name on it and just saying hey this is the best we could do because that's honestly how i feel for many of the most controversial proposal is on buying stuff in florida schools measure the state's governor is against a ban on assault rifles was voted down on saturday there's not a single teacher there's not a single student that i've spoken to over the past several days about this topic that thinks it's a good idea to introduce more guns into our classrooms seventeen people were killed at the school and parkland parents who lost children in the shooting had a simple message for politicians this time must be different and we demand action we come from different backgrounds and hold a variety of viewpoints yet we are united on this. no family should endure what we have endured what happened in portland almost three weeks ago has led to a nationwide debate on gun control it's long been
a divisive issue but increasingly the us public is in favor of gun reform and political action so far that's been slow in coming the bill will now go to florida's house of representatives in the hopes it will reach the governor's desk by friday governor scott has said he won't approve arming teachers that's a sentiment echoed by the survivors of the school shooting but their desire to see assault rifles banned is now off the table and gallacher al-jazeera tallahassee florida united states ascent of the largest military force to vietnam since the end of the war in one nine hundred seventy five the aircraft carrier color vents and then two other ships have dropped anchor off the coast of the not where u.s. troops first landed in nine hundred sixty five what the u.s. navy is describing as a routine port stop is being seen as a direct signal to china to curb its activities in the south china sea when he has been aboard and reports from. the last time the united states military had such
a sizable presence in vietnamese waters they were waging war. now welcoming the old enemy aboard and selling them souvenirs also to. the visit to the city of dunning by the aircraft carrier calvin sin and support ships is a powerful symbol that relations between the former foes have been transformed. always. to do in the region dunning holds some bad memories for the u.s. military combat troops came ashore here fifty three years ago this week to begin a campaign to try to help south vietnam defeat the communist north they failed and a previously divided country was unified under communist rule which remains today. a huge warship back in vietnam may be uncomfortable for some but others believe it's a positive step and then the war is over the past is the past and the future is opening up for us after twenty one years of normalized relationship between our two
countries the situation is getting better that's been helped by a common interest china and its increasingly assertive role in the region the ship is anchored in a which then becomes the south china sea where vietnam and other countries are locked in territorial disputes with china and to a large extent that seems to be what this deployment is about china is accused of building military bases in runways for warplanes on islands and reefs while the u.s. wants to ensure freedom of navigation in the south china sea it's found a strategic ally in vietnam vietnam has had historically a very contentious relationship with the chinese that has been exacerbated in recent years by what's happening in the south china sea. in vietnam is looking for the united states for backup for political backup for military backup in the event there is a conflict or crisis in the south china sea the us navy says chinese ships have been seen on this deployment but everyone is abiding by the rules that hasn't
always been the case which is created a situation that's helped bring the united states and vietnam closer together wayne hay al-jazeera denying vietnam afghanistan has been declared one of the worst places to be born with high rates of infant mortality and sexual and physical abuse and was unemployment at more than forty percent there's been an exodus of the country's educated youth now the afghan president has initiated a new strategy to get young people jobs but his tiny burton found out the plan poses new dangers. there's an army of desperate street kids selling whatever they can in a daily battle for survival it's not just the bombs and bullets that kill in afghanistan but poverty and hunger too the young work wherever they can mostly for a pittance there are hundreds of thousands of them most with no hope of an education these children at the internationally supported are often aging kabul a more fortunate they are
