small funds award winning environmental solutions program with homes never moved out of them to a real job but. meeting the people communities and organizations addressing some of the greatest man made environmental problems threatening our planet. a new season of birthrights an al-jazeera. al-jazeera is there what us torrie breaks but it's also good to see what happens next if you wish to unplug it fired by the barriers for a model barricade of all seven streets that lead to here the middle east now is all about change people have gone all still here barrier the mission of the national army is just sixteen times one complex and al-jazeera story is about telling it from the people's perspective what they think is happening in their culture.
unlike the prior administration we will not look like the bad scope of. the new us secretary of state might come pale calls for unity as a wrong dominates discussions on his first trip to the middle east. and welcome to the program i'm in there's a problem also coming up. north korea's leader promises to close his country's atomic test site a pledge that falls short of what the world wants. one hundred refugees demand guarantees for a safe return to myanmar during a un visit to their camps in bangladesh and the strain he announces hundreds of millions of dollars to help protect the great barrier reef but environmentalists say it's just a drop of the ocean. the
new secretary of state mike pompei o has underscored the need for unity in the gulf as he visits the middle east mustering support for new sanctions against iran but speaking in the cell the capital he urged the kingdom and its allies to resolve an almost here long standoff but that u.s. officials say iran is exploiting to boost its regional influence. reports. on his new international trip the new u.s. secretary of state sent a message to iran. called for sanctions criticize the ballistics messiah program and blame for destabilizing the middle east. like the prior administration we look like that scope overruns terrorism. it is
indeed the greatest sponsor terrorism in the world and we are determined to make sure. that nuclear weapons. raises many questions about the future of the iran nuclear deal it was widely praised as a breakthrough one signed three years ago but president barack obama's successor has repeatedly said the deal is for. donald trump's due to decide next bomb on whether or not to restore sanctions on iran a move that many where we might undermine the nuclear agreement saudi arabia is also calling for more sanctions on iran accusing to herat of using proxy fighters in yemen to destabilize the kingdom. feet a key thing and i would use saudi arabia is supporting the policy of president trump towards iran and we support the efforts related to the iranian nuclear case which we need to minimize we also need to see more inspections of iranian nuclear
sites i think the problem with iran should be sorted out by imposing more sanctions on iran for violating international law and violating the ballistic missile accord and for interference in neighboring countries. but the u.s. faces many challenges as it tries to rally international support for further iran sanctions the e.u. warns against scrapping the nuclear deal russia and china have to block any u.s. a town to in their words sabotage the nuclear deal. the gulf cooperation council the powerful and which regional bloc and a close u.s. ally remains divided the u.s. wants and and to the crisis of the blockade of qatar the new york times reports told saudi officials enough is enough to stop the book a
they also stressed to the foreign minister the go theory is necessary we need it which even. the us where we use the term month long disagreements. with qatar will undermine the chances of bringing stability to the region and finding a solution to the middle east peace process. and pompei next stop is as well for meetings with prime minister benjamin netanyahu has among the fiercest critics off the iran nuclear deal. i'll discuss with him the developments in the region on the growing iranian aggression and of course on the nuclear agreement with iran on which there is going to be a decision soon let's go to our correspondent harry for now he's joining us live from west jerusalem it's been a very short visit what speed on the agenda harry. that's right and it's still under way the two men are meeting now and it's going to be
a totaling about four hours before pomp air gets back on his plane and heads to amman jordan in the initial greetings which were televised. said that he had a special place in his heart to israel benjamin netanyahu saying that he was proud that he had chosen israel to be part of his first international trip as secretary of state but by far the priority as far as israelis are concerned seems to be the one shared by mike pompei on this visit this talk about iran the growing threat as the u.s. and israel see coming from iranian activity in the region not just as he was talking about in saudi arabia with the fighters in yemen but as far as israel is concerned iranian activity inside syria and so all this talk of trying to get sanctions together to stop ballistic missiles being spread by iran and so forth that is very much along the same hymn sheet that benjamin netanyahu has been
reading from for several years now and any sense that the u.s. is going to pull out of the j.c. p.o.v. the iran nuclear deal on may the twelfth which is the deadline by which donald trump has to make that decision that will be hugely welcomed by now as and you know he may get that on may the twelfth the embassy move from tel aviv to jerusalem on may the fourteenth and then we wait to see if a around the same time the u.s. will release its suppose a trump plan for progress on the peace process between palestinians and israelis of course there is a total rejection of any such plan already from the palestinians so outraged by the egypt declaration of jerusalem as israel's capital by the united states by dawn from in early december there is no there was never any possibility of a meeting it seems between pompei and the palestinians a senior palestinian official saying that he didn't seek one and even if he had the palestinians would not have met him thank you very much for that that is that harry

been used again anyway joining shit on chairman kim said when they come they will see that we have two bigger tunnels than the current test facilities and they are in good condition. the willingness to allow visitors to the test center appears to be another concession before the planned summit with donald trump and the north koreans by this is the necessity. for any kind of negotiations because if they don't see that the want. and nobody is going to talk to them moon phoned the u.s. president to brief him on the into korean talks the declaration signed there included a broad reference to denuclearize ation of the korean peninsula trump and moon agree that more specific measures on getting rid of nuclear weapons should be discussed at the us president's meeting with kim kim jong un is also reported to have said even though the united states is inherently hostile towards north korea

we care of our government has really ever seen in be burned is in marrying to sixty because there are. new groups have always do want to be a war and their own country it is very hard for. that molly is to accept and relieve for all of africa to our serve because it is based on welfare and ethnicity and there are only five percent of the mali in population and they will be landlocked and so they have always argued it did for this as you mentioned a few years back they assigned the most recent. peace deal with the government with peers to be holding why will the terrorists target them it will seem that. they are trying to get the two arias to once again pick up pick up the gun and the stuff belies the government of mali i think may be the reason why
they are trying to target the two aren't saying get them fighting again. divisions are the bricks at a deepening between the u.k.'s national government in london and the dozen scotland's parliament in the u.k. voted as a whole to leave the e.u. most scottish wanted to to remain inside the block and now there are new questions about whether scotland will eventually call its own way lawrence leave opponents now from aberdeen aberdeen's knows the granite city it's a tough place a bit intimidating looking at the unions don't like being told what i think. the ports attracts workers from all over the world for oil and renewables and the north sea fishing industry it's an important place for both scotland and the u.k. and so the opinions of these people matter identity politics which seems to shape so much nowadays is very pronounced in aberdeen the people have voted by some distance to remain british in the scottish independence referendum but then in the
brics it vote they said they would rather be europeans than simply british citizens and now it appears they can't both in this confusion it was crawfish national party thinks it may have another opportunity christian is a french national who married a scot and who now works in local politics with a party that wants independence from the u.k. if that sounds confusing then his explanation is that he identifies as being a european and so he believes do an increasing number of scots living here as an amazing discussion the discussion of identities i'm scottish i'm proud to be scottish i don't need to have a better word to use you a french of course i'm french you can be bold for you can be british you can be european yeah i'm a citizen of the world i got a message but it is a me but it is such a thing then citizen of the world and i am one of them the latest polling suggests that forty eight percent of scots want independence from the u.k.
and fifty two percent don't and when you look at voting intentions for an independent scotland it's clear that the young by a wide margin want scottish independence while older people are against it it's the identical demographic splits to the brics it votes the young identifies european the old see themselves as british the polls show that the younger people particularly are very disillusioned with the way that westminster is operated and keen to show that they are as european as anybody else in the last independence referendum four years ago the yes campaign lost by two hundred thousand votes but that was before breakfast. if the scottish independence movement wants another vote a chance to change the minds of people in aberdeen it will surely waits until it knows the time is right and it breaks it fails scotland while the generations change they may still get their child's al-jazeera in aberdeen. till mania now we're opposition activists are holding a march blocking roads leading to the capital supporters of. a push in parliament
