new populist government is finally sworn in after three months of deadlock. the u.s. president says he'll meet north korea's leader kim jong un on june the twelfth in singapore he made the statement after hosting kens top paid out the one town came young charles hands deliver the letter to trump from kim jong il and stayed in the oval office with the president foremost chair and was the former spy chief is the most senior north korean to hold talks at the white house since a senior envoy met former president bill clinton in the year two thousand were meeting with the chairman on june twelfth. and i think it's probably going to be a very successful ultimately a successful process will soon be remembered i say we will see what we will see but i think it's going to be
1:02 am
a process that we deserve to have i mean we really deserve they they want it we think it's important and i think we would be making a big mistake if we didn't have i think we're going to have a relationship and it will start in june where the u.s. is retired the u.n. security council resolution calling for the protection of costin's in gaza the west bank the resolution was put forward by kuwait's and call for the consideration of the majesty guarantee palestinian safety it comes after a recent flare up of violence along the gaza israel border which has left more than one hundred palestinians dead and sandals and engines the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. told the council the resolution so ok grossly one sided view fell to blame hamas for the recent violence this resolution perpetuates the bias toward israel that has long been the hallmark of the united nations it is resolutions like this one that
1:03 am
undermine the un's credibility in dealing with the israeli palestinian conflict. because this resolution is wildly inaccurate in its characterization of recent events in gaza and because it would harm any efforts towards peace the united states will oppose it and will veto it if necessary. well the silver. medalists we deplore that the council failed to adopt the draft resolution which stipulates that protection should be provided to the palestinians the last days proved that they are in dire and tragic need and need our counsel to provide protection in the face of the massacres against them by israel our diplomatic editor j. space joins me now from the united nations in new york james that nikki haley u.s. ambassador to the u.n. was hoping to justify have the key to kuwait a resolution are bringing a u.s. resolution well it seems to have backfired. it seems to have backfired horribly
1:04 am
for the united states here she tried the tactics of persuasion we saw her in the room going round other council members trying to persuade them to support her resolution and reject the kuwaiti one she also tried to get hers voted on first using procedural measures that was rejected by the russian presidency of the security council and in the end yes the u.s. used its veto on the kuwaiti resolution which had ten votes in favor it would have otherwise passed that's the forty fourth time that the u.s. has used its veto power to support israel in the security council but if you're looking back at the history of this the really stunning thing is the fact that the u.s. is own resolution which was very strongly critical critical of hamas only got one vote in favor and that was the u.s. is own vote and i can tell you i've been speaking to ambassador who certainly cannot recall that ever happening in recent history but of poring over the history
1:05 am
books and think that's never happened before i'm being told by several ambassadors that a security council resolution has been put forward by a country and only got one vote the vote of that country and stark contrast really jane as we're looking at pictures from earlier at the gaza border on friday where there was tear gas and a live ammunition used yet again and at the heart of all this is still the fact that there some rest carries along what next for the fs the diplomatic efforts to try and find some way out of this. well this may of been a bad day from bastard i haley because it was a diplomatic humiliation in the security council but i have to say some diplomats of colleagues in the council the meeting ended said perhaps this is what the u.s. wants to point out that you know the u.n. and the u.n. security council is against israel there really though is nothing else out there in
1:06 am
terms of any action that can be taken because there are no other initiatives other than the new u.s. initiative as you know the president's son in law jerry questioner is supposedly coming up with a peace plan no details of that properly emerged yet but it's clear that the palestinians have absolutely no trust in the u.s. they don't see the minister as an honest broker neither it seems do other members of the u.n. security council so maybe a difficult day for ambassador halley but the real losers here are the palestinian people and for that matter israelis to want to see peace many thanks to his base there live for us at the united nations well ahead of that palestinian paramedic was killed by israeli forces during protests along the gaza border twenty one year old volunteer paramedic. i've been volunteering at the border since march when we
1:07 am
came out friday demonstrations began several more palestinians have been injured is the latest sayings follow a week that saw the worst escalation of violence between israel and palestinian factions angles that since twenty four to have a force that has more from gaza. well another volley of tear gas has been fired into the crowd which remains just a couple hundred meters away from the border fence this has been yet another friday of protest here on the gaza israel border it's been going on since march thirtieth and shows no sign yet of stopping these protesters have once again been met with live fire from israeli forces and repeated use very heavy use of tear gas as well the question now is really how long this is sustainable it is still seen by many palestinians here in gaza as a way of venting the continued desperation with the humanitarian situation as it continues to get worse here the real question though is when the political position
1:08 am
from hamas will come to end these protests if it does i was speaking to a senior advisor to the hamas leadership and he was saying that it is a question of israel lifting the siege and blockade at that point the strategy of peaceful protest could perhaps change however the question really is whether a long term ceasefire can be agreed between israel and hamas there's all sorts of reporting about that with egypt as the main broker there also reports in the israeli media today that these really army is once again urging its government to act and try to come to some kind of accommodation with hamas as the humanitarian situation can use to it continues to worsen because they're worried that that is further going to worsen the security situation as well both sides though remain a long way apart in terms of what they would want from any such kind of deal and for now the protests continue.

welcome back reminder of the top stories are an al-jazeera the u.s. says vetoed a u.n. security council resolution calling for the protection of palestinians in gaza on the west bank and alternative draft resolution put forward by the us was also rejected this was the palestinian ambassador reaction to the fact. i don't believe that there was in the history of the united states the history of the united nations in which a country to submit at the draft resolution and not to receive except one single vote of the party that did submit that after a solution if that is the epic of complete failure i want you to tell me what is fair in the security council. on the us president on
1:17 am
a chance says he'll meet north korea's leader kim jong un on june twelfth in singapore in made this statement after hosting ken's top aides at the white house. let's get some more on this like our our correspondents lie for us in washington d.c. mike also smiles over seven meeting and gone very well and now we've got the summits on the diary but there wasn't an imminent do you clear eyes ation expectation from what the president was saying. well no he's made very clear that this is the beginning off a process unlike the previous announcement of that summit he's making very clear this time that this should be seen as the beginning of a process he said there will not be anything signed to following that summit on june the twelfth what we are likely to see is them handing over further negotiations to the negotiating teams but what president trump is talking about
1:18 am
here is marking the beginning of the process but what he will be looking forward to is perhaps not immediate action but certainly a commitment from the north korean leader to disarmament it a discernible future and indeed he did say that they had discussed sanctions and been usual don't want style it was almost like he was threatening that if indeed the summit didn't work out he had hundreds of sanctions that to sort of already to go that would be almost a punishment the north koreans very much making clear as well that sanctions are always there in the offing that he will intensify the sanctions should these negotiations not work out but this is not a one sided process north korea too is looking for certain guarantees from the united states in particular security guarantees it's also looking for a relaxation of those sanctions so from north korea's point of view the threats
1:19 am
from donald trump refer the sanctions should these not work out will be countered by the threat of an ongoing nuclear program should the talks not work out so this is very much a two way process as fast as north korea sees not willing to make concessions and will not make concessions unless there's some reciprocal concessions from the u.s. side many thanks mike and then they're bringing in the latest on that day at the white house. the european union has launched a dispute settlement case and the world trade organization in response to the u.s. decision to impose tariffs on steel minium the e.u. along with canada and mexico say it will retaliate against the move promising levies on billions of dollars of u.s. goods natasha butler house will. the european union must defend itself this is the message from the blocs trade commissioner who says e.u. leaders are united in imposing retaliatory tariffs on u.s.
1:20 am
exports we are not seeking to to escalate any situation but but we need to respond and we do so in a measured manner. but not responding would be the same as accepting these these tariffs which we consider are illegal and against. there's no word on exactly what the terrorists would be on or when they'd be imposed but they're expected to target a range of u.s. imports from jeans to motorcycles the e.u.'s foreign policy chief says a dispute settlement procedure is being launched at the world trade organization but a trade war isn't wanted the european union is a peace project including on treat we believe in. global free fair trade and we will continue to do so. donald trump's announcement on thursday to impose a twenty five percent tariff on e.u. steel imports and ten percent on aluminum has infuriated e.u. bidders the french president who's worked hard to develop
1:21 am
a good relationship with his u.s. counterpart hardened his tone i like him a lot he said i think that this decision is not only illegal but it's also a mistake because it addresses the already existing international imbalance by further dividing it and by bringing economic and trade nationalism nationalism is war era leaders may be united for now but will they remain so over the question of whether or not to enter into trade negotiations with washington the twenty eight member bloc has to act on consensus but finding a common approach will not be easy germany is likely to want to avoid a full blown trade war as the largest european exports are to the u.s. it has much to lose france on the other hand may pursue a tougher line something made clear by the french finance minister. we do not discuss under pressure and we do not negotiate under pressure i think we must
1:22 am
return to more wisdom in world trade. the e.u. is one of the main trading partners of the u.s. for now e.u. leaders are speaking with one voice their factory job some political reputations at stake that may change as the impact of u.s. tariffs of felt the bottler al-jazeera paris but while canada mexico and the new year are planning to fight back some economists are warning the decision by president could damage the u.s. economy and the gallagher reports from miami. like many states florida's construction industry has been booming three years demand for new development is being driven by a strong economy and in this state alone half a million people working construction but the rising cost of steel an alum minium could see developers deal a serious blow to the entire industry it hurts us a lot in the fact that unpredictable makes it very difficult for us to sign contracts that i know for sure we can complete for the number that the developer
1:23 am
really needs us to do it for consumers to could end up out of pocket as u.s. manufacturing prices rise and the agricultural sector braces for retaliation from the e.u. canada and mexico some economists though say president trump is driven by something other than making trade fairer for the u.s. it's mostly done for posturing because trump sees this as. part of his base in particular the swing voters in many western states that got him elected and he wants to show or pretend that he's doing something but again i don't think these terrorists will stick whatever the motivations the stakes are high president trump says trade was a reason to win but ultimately it's the consumer and the worker that may end up suffering for president trump as a great deal of symbolism in placing tariffs on alimony and steel it reaffirms his commitment to putting america first of course he wants to revive jobs in america's
1:24 am
rust belt but the reality on the ground is very different developer say rising prices could ultimately lead to a recession something nobody wants and what it is for now a booming economy and gallacher al-jazeera miami florida. so this first populist government has been sworn in bringing an end to three months of political deadlock little known result of professor giuseppe contests and it's a coalition of the anti establishment five star movement and far right party. has more from rome. hunting over to the new prime minister paolo gentle only makes way for law professor giuseppe conti marking the first time italy's so-called populists have been in government ruled the is very cool i swear to be a lot of republican faithful respect its constitution and its laws and to exercise my role in the exclusive interest of the public. the financial markets have reacted
