the sea because in countries means crossing the intimidating river more and more refugees are attempting this route even though they know how dangerous it is even outside the risk of drowning or dying of cold in these huge empty spaces any number of refugees have told us the conflict means been forcibly turned around by greek police acting in coordination with from texas the european union for the agency. this eighteen year old syrian was in the smugglers' boats with his young the system . the police came up to us in that boat they told us you can cross they made us turn around the police who previously given us access to their fence and border patrols gave us a statement denying that they turn any refugees around and claim their priority is human dignity. but human rights advocates say they know pushbacks happen all the time and accuse the greek government of breaking international law.
5:01 am
this is al-jazeera. watching the news hour live for headquarters. coming up in the next sixty minutes the speculation is over china confirms president xi jinping has met with north korean leader kim jong il in beijing. this is a chance. there should be a day of shame for every member of this council the u.s. lashes out at russia and syria accusing them of fusing a u.n. cease fire it's a bomb. into submission saudi arabia's crown prince uses his visit to the u.s. to renew his attack on the iranian nuclear agreement plus. the shock fishing is still big business here in indonesia a population. i declined and the government eighty three it's got back to that
5:02 am
report in public in a number of. hello china has released pictures of its president xi jinping holding a face to face meeting with the north korean leader kim jong il in beijing pyongyang state media is also reporting that chinese president has accepted an invitation from kim to visit north korea there had been widespread media speculation about the meeting on tuesday well beijing says kim is quote committed to getting rid of his country's nuclear weapons. we have two correspondents following the story we'll go to kathy novak in seoul shortly but first let's speak to adrian brown in beijing who will tell us why it took so long to confirm this meeting adrian. i think it's fair to assume
5:03 am
this was down to security reasons really when kim jong un's father and grandfather came to china their visits were only ever confirmed after they had left the country so i think it was mainly for security reasons in this era of political and diplomatic surprises we now have another xi jinping has demonstrated that like president trump he too is capable of surprises we have to remember that kim jong un and president xi jinping have not really been on speaking terms ever since kin jong un came to power relations have gone from good to basically extremely testy and of course china has been the country that's been in forcing sanctions against north korea that it's almost certainly taken a toll on the north korean economy and it of course may be one of the reasons why kim jong un has come to china now now with these pictures of president xi jinping
5:04 am
and kim jong un together shaking hands smiling we're being led to believe that these two allies are once more close again that normal service in a sense has now been resumed china has really rolled out the red carpet albeit a red carpet that was rolled out during complete secrecy kim was given a full welcoming ceremony with military honors inside the great hall of the people and of course this was his first visit outside of north korea and the fact that his meeting was with president xi jinping of course gives enormous face to china's leader or we did see a lengthy statements come out about the meeting from the chinese state run news agency but what was at the heart of these discussions do you think. i think virtually jingping wanted to know what kim's strategy would be during his upcoming summit with president donald trump i think you know china regards anything
5:05 am
that happens on the north korean peninsula involving nuclear weapons missile testing as you know a direct threat to its national security and of course china and north korea are our allies they have a military pact that binds them together so china feels justified in instances like this to find out exactly what the north korean leader's thinking is right now it's almost certain that kim jong un was summoned to beijing but what has she jinping offered president kim in return was it the threat of more sanctions or has he offered him something something tangible i guess that'll become you know apparent in the in the coming days but certainly it does demonstrate that china does have sway over north korea because in the past of course during recent years when north korea has carried out missile tests china has always given the impression look we only have so much control over north korea will now we know that china has in many ways absolute control over north korea in some matters ok adrian thank you let's
5:06 am
cross now to kathleen of arches joining us from seoul to tell us what the reaction has been from south korea about this visit. well the government seems to be seeing it quite positively the unification ministry says that any improvement in development in the relations between china and north korea ahead of course of the upcoming summit between the south korean president and kim jong un and also plans for the summit between donald trump and kim jong un are conducive to addressing the issues on the korean peninsula including denuclearization and ultimately peace and the china's top diplomat. due to come to seoul tomorrow to brief south korean officials on this visit that visit of young was supposed to actually happen originally last week and now it's been moved presumably to allow for this visit and the announcement of the visit to happen and to allow young to
5:07 am
come here and talk to the south korean government about what was discussed between kim and she and of course the south korean government is pressing ahead with its own plans for a summit there's a high level into korean meeting show jeweled for tomorrow at the d.m.z. at the border between north and south korea to hammer out some of the details so i think broadly south korea is still cautiously optimistic about the atmosphere of peace that seems to have developed here on the korean peninsula and would hope to continue this engagement and dialogue with the government of kim jong il and how significant is it that president xi has accepted an invitation to visit pyongyang. you know it would be significant to see visit north korea of course this is significant that kim jong un has come to china the first visit as adrian mentioned that he has made outside of north korea since becoming leader in twenty two thousand and eleven the first time that he has met another world leader and comes
5:08 am
amid this flurry of diplomatic activity leading up to these summits of course the question has been why now why has kim jong un turned from this provocative atmosphere of launching missiles regularly to proposing the meeting between donald trump and kim jong and between the two koreas of course there's a suggestion that perhaps sanctions that have been imposed are starting to bite and that is what's forcing kim jong un to the table but on the other hand the narrative that certainly north korea wants to promote is that kim jong un is more confident now that he has solidified his position and his nuclear and missile weapons program and he can come to the table be seen he wants to be seen as a world leader that can negotiate with the likes of xi jinping and donald trump confident in the knowledge that he has this missile program that he has built up there's been some commentary also in the south korean media that perhaps north
5:09 am
korea might be turning more pro-american certainly china would not like to see that so the other question being asked is is kim jong un here trying to play china off against the u.s. so it will certainly be interesting to see developments with these plans for perhaps she can ping rather to visit north korea and the two summits that we're expecting in april and may during sure will ok kathy novak thank you now the white house has released the statements about the historic meeting it says the u.s. sees this development as further evidence that our campaign of maximum pressure is creating the appropriate atmosphere for a dialogue with north korea. there's been another round of blame trading among un security council members as they discuss the failure of their call for a cease fire to take effect in syria they agreed on february twenty fourth to call for a thirty day break in hostilities it's allowed some extra aid to reach people but
5:10 am
bombings haven't stopped an easterner of were syrian government forces and their russian allies have been fighting to recapture the rebel on cleve it's on the outskirts of damascus russia will stop at nothing to use its permanent seat on this council to shield it south by bashar al assad from even the faintest criticism and we cannot take these actions because instead of calling out how assad russia and iran made a mockery of our calls for a cease fire too many members of this council wanted to wait this is a travesty. this should be a day of shame for every member of this council and it should be a lesson about what happens when we focus on fleeting displays of unity instead of on what's right. well in response russia's u.n. ambassador accused fellow members of wasting time instead of taking action against armed groups and fighters. and. some
5:11 am
members of the security council prefer to squander time on letters and rhetoric with claims against our country probably this is to conceal their own willingness to do something constructive in implementing the cease fire resolution and in line with the groups they sponsor. meanwhile russia's defense ministry says thirteen thousand fighters and their families have left over the past three days they're heading to the last rebel held province and the country. has more from neighboring beirut. ahmed says he never carried arms against the syrian government but some of his family members belong to the five man faction that's one of the reasons why he left his home in eastern as part of the surrender deal reached with the pope government alliance the other reason is his opposition to reconciling with a government that has killed so many people. every family in lost
5:12 am
a family member i lost a lot of friends i lost a colleague who was among the twenty six who died in the famous airstrike i lost two children that i was teaching at school we decided to move away from this brutal regime. ahmed now lives in a mosque he is among some eight hundred thousand people who have been displaced from what was once the rebel controlled enclave in the suburbs of damascus many of those deported to adlib opposition controlled province in the northwest are fighters. is one of them the rebels controlled since late two thousand and twelve but months later it was besieged by government forces. i mean it's sad that we lost this battle after seven years of remaining steadfast after so many sacrifices we had to surrender. because of the civilians they killed many children the hospitals were out of service anyone injured would die slowly. camps are being set
5:13 am
up for syria's newly displaced the refugee camps are overstretched this is a province with a population of one million displaced people and local communities are struggling to cope when rebels are defeated they go to those who don't want to live under the rule of president bashar assad also moved to adlib but there is nowhere safe in that province airstrikes continue to hit nonmilitary targets such as schools and health facilities the rebels arrived with their light weapons it's not clear if they will join the ranks of the armed factions an adlib where there has been rebel fighting. regime for seven years but no food no water no medicine until the regime and the russians launched a barbaric campaign we promised the regime that we will return we will liberate the area there are those who refused to admit defeat but the loss of east is the worst setback for the opposition since it was forced to surrender the eastern part of aleppo city in two thousand and sixteen after

a similar military campaign. facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg will reportedly testify before a u.s. congressional committee next month over the social network's role in harvesting millions of users without their knowledge facebook and the data analytics firm cambridge. are the center for rao over how personal information was used to influence the outcome of the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election well the whistleblower at the heart of the scandal has also been giving evidence to british m.p.'s christopher wiley said data gathered unlawfully was used to manipulate people in the u.k. to vote to leave the european union lawrence lee reports. christopher what his extraordinary relations are now casting a shadow over democratic elections on both sides of the atlantic here he was speaking to a u.k. government committee explaining how he knew that public opinion had been unlawfully
5:15 am
manipulated before the referendum which is leading to the u.k. leaving the european union to irrevocably alter the constitutional settlement of this country on fraud is a mutilation of the constitutional settlement of this country and you cannot call yourself a lever you cannot call yourself somebody who believes in british law and and win by breaking british law in order to achieve that. while the central claim is that the campaign group to leave the european union hired an offshoot of cambridge analytical the data mining company accused of harvesting personal details of millions of people through facebook and manipulating opinions in an attempt to put on trump in the white house the company he said had subverted elections for its own aims in countries including nigeria and trinidad now it was doing the same in the u.k. the company will send out videos of people being murdered to intimidate voters this
5:16 am
is the company that goes out and tries to illicitly acquire you know live internet browsing data of everyone in an entire country so i think a lot of questions should be asked about the role of patriotic here in this election and whether they were indeed actually complying with the law here to answer they said had already been claimed to leave campaign broke u.k. election law by using campaign funds on lawfully allegations the leave camp denies it but in an emergency debate in parliament m.p.'s hostile to bricks it's have begun to demand the referendum results be declared null and void inherently untrustworthy if the allegations are true it's a potentially six hundred. and she five thousand pounds was spent illegally in a very focused targeted campaign which by definition would been focused on targeted on a very small number of people then i think it's very hard to predict the the effect
5:17 am
that that would have passed the law is to new york and nobody is above it at least one prominent m.p. who backs the leave campaign said he agreed with the need for a criminal inquiry so it's ended up in a situation where you get newspaper headlines like this questioning not just the ethical value but the sheer legality of the vote to leave the european union of course supporters of brecht's states would say the entire thing is a made up plot to discredit a democratic decision but in this hall of mirrors it's becoming increasingly difficult to know what's real and what's fake lawrence lee al jazeera westminster in london. plenty more ahead on the al jazeera news hour including we'll tell you why isn't bob when school teachers have threatened to storm the president's office . coming up in sport three australian cricketers have been sent home in disgrace from their tour of south africa. that story for you.

but first nato has joined twenty six countries that are expelling russian diplomats in response to the nerve agent attack in the u.k. seven russian nato diplomats will be sent home and three others will have their accreditation blocked nato secretary general says russia has underestimated the unity of the alliance or the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has reiterated that they'll respond strongly adding that many countries expelling diplomats have been forced to do so if you're so you were split on the story we will respond because nobody wants to talk about switchboard behavior and we won't tell you we know this is the result of colossal pressure colossal blackmail which is now unfortunately the main tool of washington on the international arena. five people are facing charges related to a fire in
5:19 am
a russian shopping center that killed sixty four people forty one of them children the tragedy sparked protests on the streets demanding justice for the victims president vladimir putin visited the siberian city where it happened and blamed the tragedy on criminal negligence our moscow correspondent. two different memorial events in moscow one tuesday evening two different aspects of a nation's grief first the official one beneath the walls of the kremlin with flowers and toys supplied by the city authorities later a people's gathering on pushkin square here there was anger at the country's political system for allowing cameras appalling fine to happen. on the ground our citizens are deeply unhappy with your thought these actions including the president who should be responsible for everything happening in the country but you never the less doesn't do anything to minimize things like corruption doesn't
5:20 am
mean i think that the other rallies hundred percent state i don't think that many people willingly when there are many of them receive salaries from the state and they were forced to attend here people came because they want to tune in camera itself which lost so many people in this disaster understandably the mood was even more roar that's a rally demanding truth and justice a man described his last words to his dying young daughter would you give my address i said where is my daughter i was talking to her on the phone she cried i'm here dad here i told her lie down on the floor and breathe breathe and don't die i cry i was crying to my daughter she said dad i love you i'm suffocating i'm losing consciousness excuse me people here say they believe the death toll is much higher than officially admitted. vladimir putin often stays away from domestic disasters
5:21 am
but earlier on tuesday he visited camera and its bereaved residents criminal negligence was to blame he said but it was too early to point fingers this says the investigation team of one hundred people is working here they will go along the whole chain starting with those who issued licenses and up to those who are responsible for safety and that security firm employee who is sitting there and did not press the button on time in the gutted remains of the winter cherry shopping center those investigators are trying to piece together what happened and how blocks fire exits and nonfunctioning alarm system and the slow emergency response might have contributed to the deaths of so many children and families relaxing on a sunday afternoon five people have been charged the director and the technical director of the mall have already appeared in court they insist all safety inspections and training were done by the book rusher is no stranger to horrible tragedy so it's quite difficult to put one's finger exactly on what it is about of
5:22 am
this one that's made people so hurt and angry perhaps the high number of children dead is a factor but also too i think the belief amongst many russians that corruption and bureaucratic indifference on just nuisances they can be devastatingly fatal to a country's systemic failings are often most exposed by disaster and it's the failings of eighteen years of putin's rules that are on display just as he begins his fourth and potentially last in office rory chalons al-jazeera moscow. saudi arabia's crown prince is criticizing the iran nuclear deal comparing it to quote waiting for a bullet to reach our heads he said action was needed immediately to replace the agreement in an interview with the new york times' mohamed bin saddam on insisted the deal with only delay not prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons the two thousand and fifteen agreement saw international sanctions on iran lifted in exchange for the curbing of its nuclear development program joel rubin is the
5:23 am
president of the washington strategy group and the former deputy assistant secretary of states he says the crown prince is stepping into a politically divisive debate in the u.s. . these are significant comments but it's really ill advised for him to be wading into the middle of a partisan fight right now and that's really how it's shaping up in washington over the iran nuclear deal democrats very much want this deal to continue and many republicans as well in congress have not voted to have this deal and they wanted to be implemented well and they want the oversight they want the inspections they have concerns about other issues as democrats do as well but they want to keep this in place so for him to insert himself right now at this time it doesn't look good for for him with democrats and it really does put a bull's eye in a sense on the pack of saudi arabia as an instigator of ending this deal this is
5:24 am
taking it to a rhetorical level that we have not seen from saudi arabia before but there's a lot of repair work still that saudi arabia has to do here in the united states with the american people the american people generally associate saudi arabia with nine one one and that has been the consistent failure of saudi arabia to really speak to the american people about this and so that combined with yemen the war there last week there was a vote in the senate to end american support for the military action by saudi arabia it didn't pass but it was an unprecedented vote so that there's not a strong reservoir of political support for saudi arabia and so it's intriguing that he's pushing so aggressively into our politics of foreign policy. well some of gyptian zur facing a campaign of intimidation and bribes to push them into voting in the presidential election local officials and security forces are threatening voters with

5:29 am
weather is through the sichuan province and into the greasier province and then gradually the whole system is working its way eastwards it's weakening a little bit as it does so but still for some of us in the young she provence down through going down and to go and she it does look like we're going to see some fairly sharp showers at times during the day the further towards the south and here we've been watching our cycle but that's here away to the east of the philippines and it looks like it's running northwards as it strengthens that means for the philippines it shouldn't be too bad we're looking at a fair amount of cloud maybe one or two showers but nothing too sinister there we heavier downpours ever parts of borneo through java and into somalia and i think this region is where we're going to see some of the wettest of the weather on thursday as well jakarta is likely to see some very hefty downpours meanwhile if we had out towards the west we've just seen a few showers over sri lanka recently and elsewhere it's been largely dry even though showers over sri lanka look like they're easing and for most of us it will be dry over the next couple of days dry and also very very hot we're looking at

weapons the u.n. security council members have again traded blame over the failure of their cease fire agreement to take effect in syria. five people are facing charges related to a fire in a russian shopping center that killed sixty four people forty one of them children . so back to our top story the historic meeting in beijing china has long been north korea's biggest trading partner but since he was president donald trump pressured beijing to enforce tougher sanctions on pyongyang due to its nuclear program trade between the two countries declined by more than ten percent to five billion dollars in two thousand and seventeen in december alone the value of chinese goods exported to north korea fell twenty three percent compared to two thousand and sixteen and exports from north korea to beijing also plunged from about two hundred fifty forty million dollars a month in two thousand and sixteen to less than fifty million and that was by the
5:33 am
end of last year let's bring in christopher hill in denver he is joining us via skype he's a former u.s. diplomat who in two thousand and fifteen negotiated directly with north korea and china on pyongyang's nuclear program thanks for speaking to us on al-jazeera how much of this historic visit this meeting that took place between kim and she jinping had to do with restoring relations first of all between the two countries. well i think first of all it is a very historic meeting of the this is the first meeting in journalist on living former leader and he chose to make it sign a now it was probably a good move for him the child abuser made very clear to the north koreans they were not interested in a meeting until the honors were right and we can understand what is going on here here's a cheatin meeting is very hopeful about the efforts of north koreans here maybe to
5:34 am
get back to the talks on the basis of evening snack the chinese let's just you know it was asian on several occasions so so what was it that you think was at the heart off the some meeting well it was a lot of law for both were high level meetings there were two countries say close together but i think the real issue for us is you know it was asia and north korea's commitment to work to do there was a should now are of the table the north koreans responded by saying if the u.s. and south korea are are sincere take measures that they see this as moving forward so clearly you were leading i guess the question will be there's a new team in washington or. john bolton. and want to see you know remembrance and just give me or any reaction on what the u.s. has had to say because we did get a statement just
5:35 am
a short while ago from the white house press secretary saying if you allow me i'll just read it out so the u.s. sees this development as further evidence that our campaign of maximum pressure is creating the appropriate atmosphere for a dialogue with north korea. well clearly the truth of this story sure it's to say that this is this is all the possible by the extreme really tough. talk coming from from the white house including the route of sanctions that the u.s. has been considering so you know i'm not sure really matters too much use you know how people are going to take credit but the first question is will the law donald trump sit down with your john hunter who are we progress since your partner was a ship because there hasn't been in some eight years and when you look at the role of china right now was china back in the driver's seat here because it had led the six party talks in the past i think in the last few weeks perhaps
5:36 am
a slow little tick issue south korea has been very much driver see the south koreans of wanted to get china and all frankly some rethinking if they didn't try to get involved so i picked it up we have to get to start reading diplomacy a lot of credit for this clearly the charities are back in the game and want to see if they can make progress china has no interest in a nuclear north korea and that's been a longstanding policy of the chinese the problem has been in the past they have the book here to do anything to bring it about because for whom we thank you for joining us out of san fran thank you. now the us president's son in law a senior adviser jared customer is facing more investigations into his business practices white house officials are looking into the legality of two loans totaling more than five hundred million dollars made to question her who is married to donald trump's daughter ivanka political hay and reports from washington. jared
