bull and bought a. new secretary of state has issued a strong warning to iran on his first two stops of his middle east in saudi arabia and israel like pump a zero accused iran of disable amazing the entire region. comes as president trump and just closer to deciding whether or not he'll pull out of the u.s. tail on the iran nuclear deal or a fourth from western. in the middle east might pompeo double down on the theme that has dominated his first international trip as secretary of state iran's threat to the region and the world and the solidifying u.s. threat to pull out of the iran nuclear deal iran destabilize this entire region that supports proxy militias and terrorist groups that arms it is an
9:03 pm
arms dealer to the who the rebels. and iran conducts cyber hacking campaigns that supports the murderous assad regime as well compares arrival in riyadh followed a barrows of eight ballistic missiles fired into saudi territory by hooty fighters in yemen the u.s. and saudi arabia say such missiles come from iran or combine that ticket and we also think that iran should be dealt with by imposing further sanctions for its violations of international laws relating to ballistic missiles. iranian missiles are a chief concern of israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu his focus on the risk of their being fired from iranian bases in syria and by hezbollah from lebanon with his talk of a u.s. pullout from the iran deal and new sanctions against tehran pompei as language was almost interchangeable with netanyahu we remain deeply concerned about iran's dangerous escalation of threats to israel in the region and iran's ambition to dominate the middle east the remains of people thought that iran's aggression would
9:04 pm
be moderated as a result of signing the do the opposite has happened and iran is trying to gobble up one country after the other both men welcome the u.s. embassy move from tel aviv to jerusalem for the fourteenth of may the day the israeli state was declared seventy years ago on maintain that final boundaries within jerusalem were up for negotiation that the us was committed to a lasting peace between israel and the palestinians there was no mention though of the recent demonstrations along the gaza border fence where israeli snipers shot unarmed protesters killing dozens and injuring hundreds my pompei was a different proposition from his predecessor rex tillerson who spent most of his tenure as secretary of state in a state of at best semi detachment from the white house on peo is seen as very close to president trouble in particular on the issue of iran and so that gives his words extra weight even perhaps especially when they mirror one of two listens frequent messages that saudi arabia's blockade on qatar should and they also stress
9:05 pm
to the foreign minister that go for unity is necessary we need to achieve it a report in the new york times said the message away from the cameras was more direct enough is enough stop the blockade by the time pompei a moved on to jordan his chief aim seemed established laying the groundwork for tougher action against iran clear two of the obstacles the e.u. russia and china have all warned against scrapping the nuclear deal the decision will be donald trump's the deadline may the twelfth are a force that al-jazeera west jerusalem. christensen we joins me now live from washington so kristen really netanyahu and pump am singing from the same hymn sheet on the wrong what's been the reaction in washington to this trip. well sir the trump administration is really speaking with one voice on this issue we heard from national security adviser john bolton doing interviews on sunday that the president is not decided on whether or not to stick with the iran nuclear deal repeating the
9:06 pm
same points we heard from mike pompei oh the deal needs to be fixed it's flawed otherwise the united states will withdraw bolton did hold out some hope though that the president is still considering changes that could be made in the suggestions that were made by president mccrone of france he suggested that the deal rather than being scrapped should be amended and he offered up a plan for pillars to do that and we've heard certainly mike pompei o and john bolton talking about the same elements that necron was talking about not only strengthening the nuclear component of the deal but reigning in iran's ballistic missile program and also. its support for armed groups like hezbollah and so on but you know you have john bolton and mike pompei o together stressing that no decision has been made yet with this deadline fast approaching they're also the fact that my pompei i was standing next to. binge minute yahoo to make this announcement the fact that he visited israel and saudi arabia on his first official
9:07 pm
trip as secretary of state shows where his thinking is of course he did consult with europeans on this trip as well but when he spoke with the prime minister the prime minister stress the fact that the united states and israel are closer than ever israel being one of the biggest critics of the iran deal no bigger critic than netanyahu and that the relationship between the u.s. and israel has never been stronger it tells you where they're coming from in these negotiations of course this is the first search for the secretary of state so how do you think might compare is going to differ from his free to say listen. well my pump aoe got this job in part because he's a hard liner on iran remember rex tillerson essentially lost the job over that issue the president expressed his dissatisfaction with how tillerson was handling the negotiations tillerson certainly not
9:08 pm
a strong proponent of the nuclear deal but had taken a more european viewpoint after consulting with allies that the deal should be amended and not scrapped completely the fear being that it would actually push iran to move and accelerate its nuclear program rather than strengthen the international community's hand in dealing with iran. again you know sorry i lost my train of thought there so so this tells you that the. tells you where he's coming from and how he got the job and certainly that was an issue for him getting the job so big difference there and again we saw it with the close relationship between the prime minister of israel and pompei when they spoke absolutely kristen stewart thank you for that update from washington d.c. now north korea is reportedly set to dismantle its nuclear testing scientist soon as next month south korea's government says the pledge was made during q.
9:09 pm
meeting with move in on friday it sponsored a series of gestures from pyongyang a pound to the aimed at calming tensions on the peninsula cafe know about reports from so. the world saw the smiles and handshakes on friday now the south korean president's office is revealing more of what was said behind closed doors at the historic summit south korea says kim jong un promised to close the pool in getting a nuclear test center next month and invited american and south korean experts and journalists to inspect it days before the summit north korea announced it would shut down the site of all six nuclear bomb tests kim referred to speculation that test explosions had so badly damaged the site it couldn't have been used again anyway q joining shit on chairman kim said when they come they will see that we have to figure tunnels than the current test facilities and they are in good condition this. the willingness to allow visitors to the test center appears to be
9:10 pm
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 every inch or two nuclear weapons nobody is going to talk to them moon phoned the u.s. president to brief him on the into korean talks the declaration signed their included a broad reference to denuclearize ation of the korean peninsula trump and moon agreed that more specific measures on getting rid of nuclear weapons should be discussed at the u.s. 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 once they talk with us they will get to know that i am not the kind of person to launch nuclear weapons towards the south or target the united states across the pacific south korea says kim intends to eliminate another sign of division by changing pyongyang's time zone
9:11 pm
by half an hour to realign with the south north korea said it's clocks back three years ago saying then that japanese imperialists had imposed tokyo time when korea was an occupied colony moon also briefed japan's prime minister and told shinzo obey that he had conveyed japan's willingness for talks with north korea a willingness kim jong un said was mutual kathy novak al jazeera sold hundreds of migrants from central america have reached the mexican border with the united states spent a month on the road and are hoping to cross into the u.s. and seek asylum but activists have warned they may not be welcomed by u.s. authorises the border. well in a moment we'll speak to rob reynolds in san ysidro in the u.s. but first a man who was in the mexican border city of tijuana we're seeing pictures of people climbing onto the fences on the border man well is there
9:12 pm
a sense some may indeed trying to sneak across and and indeed how many do you think might try the legal route. it's a bit of a festive scene here at friendship park right on the border as you mentioned in a lot of these folks that were demonstrating here today some did get a chance to climb up on top of the border wall but we didn't see anybody trying to jump over illegally or that sort of thing there is quite a bit of protection on the other side lots of law enforcement as well as other activists and immigration advocates that are supporting these groups saying that immigrants are welcome in the united states on the other side so it may not be as chaotic is as some of those pictures may suggest it's more of a festive scene that we saw take place here anywhere between two hundred and three hundred individuals again those members of that migrant group that have come up from central america most of these individuals that we've seen are from honduras others from bottom all in all salvador these are individuals that are fleeing persecution. whether it be because of gang violence or extortion related to
9:13 pm
organized crime people that are fleeing that persecution because of their sexual orientation others that are fleeing domestic abuse and and extreme extremely high levels of poverty there's a lot of single mothers that we've seen out here today with their children these are some of the. more the heart wrenching faces that you see among the crowd because you know that these people are tired they've been traveling for over a month at this point leaving their homes in central america making that long trek from southern mexico all the way to and we know about least two hundred individuals that immigration activists have singled out have have said that these are the ones that have a better chance of qualifying for political asylum in the united states and these are the ones that are going to be turning themselves into border authorities sometime later this afternoon but at the moment what we've seen is more of a festive scene people waving at activists waving at their counterparts on the other side of the border some immigrant some migrants and their families waving at
9:14 pm
at friends and families that they know on the other side of the border and when it comes to perception this isn't the sort of thing again where it's over. hundreds of individuals that are going to be storming the u.s. border and and crossing over illegally a majority of these individuals do plan to turn themselves in and follow that legal route to request political asylum in the united states. on the human side of this story well let's cross to rob reynolds who is on the other side and they sound border crossing just south of san diego to get the authority side i s'posed rob was the reception going to be to some of those who are coming and trying to get into america legally. well you know so we're not very far at all from where manwell was reporting just seconds ago but this is the main port of entry between the united states at the city of san diego were in san isidro
9:15 pm
which is just south of that major city and t. want to if you look behind me you can see the the hills of here want to that's mexico back there and this is where those migrants who believe they have a decent chance of obtaining asylum in the united states are going to be processed so they will come here they will not try to climb any fences or sneaking in the in any surreptitious way but they will present themselves to u.s. border officials and request asylum now decide the laws are both national and international in the international laws to which the united states and here's date back to the second world war two when a time when many countries including the united states refused to add allow a refugees jewish refugees from nazi germany to come to the united states for
9:16 pm
refuge. by contrast many latin american countries did allow jews from germany and europe to come but in that background the rules were set that if a person was at a risk of being discriminated against or persecuted for their religious beliefs for there and national origin belonging to a particular ethnic group or for their political beliefs those were grounds for allowing people to come in and become refugees and be safe and get asylum. but the problem now for these folks from honduras from el salvador and other central american countries is they don't fall into those categories they are at risk they're a terrible risk as emanuel was telling us. from all this violence but that violence is being perpetrated by gains by non-state actors as the term goes so they're not being persecuted necessarily by their own governments except in perhaps a few cases from honduras so that makes it more problematic for them to get that
9:17 pm
coveted status here in any event they will be processed they will probably be incarcerated put in detention we talked to a woman yesterday who was incarcerated for nine months has a nephew who's been in behind bars for more than a year it's a it's a process it takes a long time and during this whole process the would be refugees the people requesting asylum here in the united states are not necessarily provided with the legal representation or lawyers so that's an important note so it will take some time before we know whether the several hundred people that that money well as with now are actually going to be able to live safely in the united states and for many of them unfortunately the alternative is very dire if they were to be sent back to honduras to bill salvador to places where violence is is
9:18 pm
absolutely horrific the outcome could be death. thanks very much for reporting to us on the pl what. as much more to come on the al-jazeera news hour. with the. tiles of extreme brutality where hanjour refugees tell a u.n. security council team how they fled a violent crackdown in myanmar. u.k.'s decision to leave the rekindling hopes for scottish independence and in sports the king of play rough and a doll claims his eleventh barcelona and kentucky. now mother who is former president joyce banda says she's not afraid of being arrested after returning to the country and despite facing allegations of

9:36 pm
countries he said britain's u.n. ambassador said it was vital the international community act with one voice we need to go back and evaluate what we've seen on this trip and see if we can come together to build on the unified feeling that the security council had back in november when it called on the government of myanmar to do certain things to protect their way and allow them to get back in conditions of safety so i think that's the immediate short term priority myanmar has banned any independent investigation into what the u.n. says is ethnic cleansing of the ranger. doesn't recognize them as an ethnic group he calls them. what was then the burmese government stripped ranger of their citizenship in one thousand nine hundred two last november the security council passed the resolution demanding beyond muffled to military action against the written job but the potential veto power of myanmar allies china and russia has stalled anything stronger than that i should use conference china's representative

9:39 pm
nigeria to revive the economy and to fight corruption in whatever we are america can collaborate with nigeria in this three program again and the president will be talking with the american president. the nigerian president is under pressure to tackle the rising violence in the country from boko haram attacks in the northeast to communal fighting in central parts of nigeria is expecting a delivery of fighter jets in arms from the united states but they're not expected for another two years a long wait for a government just product we need to war against iran. with a beautician coming from the white house some believe the meeting could focus more on what the americans want the west actually looking for important countries like nigeria for. political interest so invited the nigerian
9:40 pm
president is important to see how nigeria can be off that can be part of the american and the west and in the west and your political interest for now there appears to be little american appetite for nigeria's hydrocarbons after the discovery of huge results of shale oil in the united states the nigerian president will want to see the return of monies and as it's stolen by politicians and government officials and stashed in the united states some of that has been tried down during the obama administration but two years later report treating the assets is yet to begin. it's not clear if the visit will quick and process so money to save the trumpet ministration could also use the visit to father america's economic interests in africa at a time the continent is looking to china for loans and economic aid with stringent conditions others say nigeria's general elections next year will almost certainly be discussed by brewery was a candidate and president trump. al-jazeera. well
9:41 pm
for more on this we're joined by like a nigerian public affairs analyst that's famous for coming in to al-jazeera it's been a very busy week for president chen with various guests and really he should be throwing out the red carpet for what he's africa's most populous country what kind of reception just think the president's going to get i think my german america is had longstanding relations going back to one nine hundred sixty s. with the far below and the j.f.k. and the history in terms of economics in terms of domestic relations in terms of the posher between countries has been historically very strong this trip of the monuments is one thing for nigeria bihari and the signification of relations between wonder in america. it would be fair i think to ask president jiang for an apology and when he first arrived on the presidential scene he didn't she sort of suggest that nigerians were living in makeshift hearts and forgive the world word
9:42 pm
