important issue suicide rights do or mind very high twice the national average we want on al-jazeera. the battle to retake the yemeni port city of today that has begun threatening to worsen an already dire humanitarian situation in the country. and i'm jane and this is al jazeera live from coming up handshakes smiles and apparently home visits donald trump and kim jong un accept mutual invitations to each other's countries the media mega merger eighteen t. gets the go ahead to buy time warner but what will this mean for consumers. and
what's in a name greece and macedonia settle a decades old dispute. a military operation has begun in yemen to take the port city of data from huth the rebels that's according to saudi owned television channel the united arab emirates which is part of the coalition with saudi arabia fighting the thieves had given the rebels until choose day to leave the un envoy to yemen had been negotiating to try to prevent fighting. the rebel sees a date in october twenty fourth team as part of efforts to topple the government and president of the rubble in one so hardy the red sea port is the second biggest after aden and an entry point for about eighty percent of aid yemen is facing the world's worst humanitarian crisis with twenty two million people needing assistance last year the society and morality coalition announced plans to move on her data
but backed off because of international pressure they say they who theses use the poor to smuggle in iranian made arms but the group denies that around six hundred thousand people live in who data the u.n. warns two hundred fifty thousand could die in a military attack. the meeting between donald trump and kim jong un may have been hailed as historic but after the handshakes and smiles there are still many questions about the details of the deal the former adversaries met for the first time on choose day in singapore kim plates to destroy his nuclear arms but with no specific timelines and trump promise to stop joint military exercises with south korea the leaders also accepted invitations to visit each other's countries when hey joins us live from seoul weigh in what's the response been now that they have had time to absorb this unilateral decision to stop the military exercises.
yes well they're clearly a very symbolic event in singapore a statement that was very broad in nature something perhaps most south koreans aren't overly surprised by but certainly not much sign in that declaration from kim jong un that he is willing to give up much if not anything and then we had that media conference from the u.s. president after their meeting saying that those joint military exercises with south korea will be ended because donald trump says they provoke it of and they're too expensive now watching that media conference was the south korean president's mungy in he issued a very brief statement after that a written statement not making any mention of this decision by donald trump to end the exercises the defense ministry here in seoul also issued a statement they clearly concerned about this what had been at least caught by surprise they said there was still interprete ing the words from donald trump to see exactly what they meant regarding these exercises which due to take place again
in august and even a statement also from u.s. forces that are based in south korea saying that they had had no notification formally from the pentagon that these exercises will be suspended or indeed called on so certainly there may be some tough questions for the u.s. secretary of state mike. who is on his way from singapore to seoul he'll meet with president moon on thursday and the foreign ministers from south korea and japan ok other than that what is likely to happen next to keep the process going the talks continuing. yes well while i mention that this was obviously very broad in nature this statement there was nothing in there that was too alarming for the south koreans in a positive light i guess it really enables them to continue their work on the ground they were quite happy obviously for this event to take place for the big events between donald trump and kim jong un but in the meantime the practical steps
of being carried out here being led by the south koreans and that's been the case really since that first into korean summits between president moon and kim jong il and so practically on the ground we have joint military high level military talks taking place on thursday as i say those joint military exercises supposed to take place between the u.s. and south korea starting in august so that may well be the first point of discussion when those representatives from the militaries of north and south korea meet on thursday in the demilitarized zone when it thank you. u.s. federal judges approved a merger to create one of the world's largest media companies the eighty five billion dollars deal between eighty and t. and time warner was announced in twenty sixteen the justice department tried to stop it but the judge said the government failed to prove the agreement would harm competition financial analyst tara jackson isn't convinced this will be
a good deal for consumers if you're a stockholder is probably a great thing eighteen c. and time warner this is a big deal for them and it's very exciting and it's going to be a lot of people out of money but when you're a consumer at the in a day you have to make sure it doesn't cost you in the end and because we're may have less competition in the future because other conglomerates may want to do the same thing that may potentially mean higher prices and costs for cable in the future for consumers when we know that comcast is already trying to do some mergers out there any provider that's out there could purchase their supplier so it's not like they're purchasing their competition it's actually a vertical integration so they could purchase all of their suppliers and so right now we have eight c.n.c. that's purchasing a lot of the news content our content providers now some people say it's not going to have an effect on content we'll see about that it may not cost more consumers dollars in the short run but it may cost consumers of information. the british
government has reached a compromise that would allow parliament to have some say in the final deal to leave the european union it has been seen as a defeat for hard line breaks a tears here also want to leave the customs union but it doesn't resolve the lack of clarity ever what breaks it will actually look like as lawrence lee reports clarity he spoke about all about courage it's tortuously slow and it's painful to watch so many times the british government has said it wants to do one thing over bricks it's only to be overturned and so again prime minister to resign may have not wanted parliament to have any say in what deal she negotiates with the european union but enough of her own m.p.'s threatened to rebel to force yet another climb down one minister even resigned so he could speak more freely. i urged my parliamentary colleagues to follow my lead and vote to give our greatest situation this house of commons our constituents and our country the powers it needs to leave
our children a legacy of which we can be proud to carry so what to make of the government's continuing inability to make sense of brecht's it on behalf of people in places like sunderland in northeastern england who voted for it see it runs a small business selling machine parts to begin destry he wants out of the european union completely and he can't understand why the government seems incapable of doing it's pretty stern no i want to stand up for england stand for the table. push around and. they just don't let the new. to the front and what is it you think. all the see all the right things and then when it comes to doing it. the work. of those businessmen who would back the conservative rebels like the boss of this factory are just as frustrated they rely on an
economic relationship with the european union and yet the government can give them no assurances that that will carry on i'm a strong supporter of the u.k. in general however i think the only norm is the thing that we're frightened of more and i don't think the government's doing the best it could to give us the information and communication on the next steps in what's likely to happen on an exit from the entire economy of some zealand relies on the giants now on its feet a company is a failed brecht's it could easily lead to this factory relocating to continental europe yet neither nissen nor anyone else knows what shape bricks it will take and back in london all is discord perhaps the best indication of the divide in society over what's happening in parliament moments is on the front page of some of the newspapers in the brics it supporting press the conservative rebels who want parliament to be given the final say on a votes or describes as betrayers and traces and yes in those newspapers which
supports them they described as heroes it's hard to escape the conclusion that this continues to be a country politically speaking at war with itself lawrence lee al-jazeera the westminster macedonia has agreed to change its name to resolve a decades old dispute with greece its new name is the republic of northern macedonia. issue has been a stumbling block to the country's bid to join the european union and nato jets are office reports from athens. the agreement between prime ministers and alexis tsipras is the fruit of six months of negotiation that ends a twenty seven year standoff between the countries both men heralded the deal as a new era for the whole of south eastern europe renamed savannah macedonia the republic of northern macedonia reeses neighbor takes a step closer to nato membership see for me a bit at the league summit. in the grave in that we reached and all the neighbors

now begins of convincing their peoples to accept the compromises greece will no longer hold a monopoly on the word macedonia and greece's northern neighbors cannot claim to be the descendants of alexander if all goes according to plan greece will recommend that the european union open accession talks with savella macedonia at a meeting of foreign ministers in two weeks time it will do the same at a nato summit next month the pressure will then be on the search government to approve the agreement in a referendum and toss constitutional amendments in parliament i. then ratify the agreement by the end of the year and savannah macedonia could theoretically hope to join the e.u. and nato next year jumpstart of los al-jazeera athens still ahead on al-jazeera. we feel bad because the government is not giving us any answers about a future survive as a volcanic eruption ask when they can start to rebuild their lives and abortion

a woman says she thanks god for having saved all her family but now she begins to think about their future without a home to go back to and yet you say to me that i think it's the president's judy to help us bond we're not sure that will happen because we haven't seen much going on for example there hasn't been an official to check to say how many people here. her daughter say this is a member of got the malice disaster agency helped all her family get together in this shelter but though she feels they're on their own. the good of all but we feel bad because the government is not giving us any answers about our future. homes farms and now the mills were destroyed here the government is promising thirty four million dollars to rebuild it will be ever going to see is that the government has a plan an apologist to provide four hundred new homes. the mayor of the screen glasses that they are working nonstop to accommodate more homeless people the mayor

and coast guard vessel has just docked it is carrying more than nine hundred migrants who were rescued off the libyan coast its release is bearing the brunt of europe's migrant crisis it says that twenty fourteen the country has accepted more than six hundred thousand migrants and this is after the country is just refused to allow another ship carrying six hundred twenty nine refugees to dog that's prompted the french president a man you're micron to cues if you have been cynical and irresponsible a chip and i had to spain which is off to take them in the refugees were a few were rescued from the sea off libya at the weekend but they found themselves stranded when both italy and multi refused to give their rescue boat permission to dock the journey to the spanish port of valencia will take three to four days the ship will be accompanied by two italian coast guard boats journal reports from rome . for four days they've been aboard the m.s.

coalition partners the five star movement and basking in high approval ratings for it what is astonishing in this this part been just populists this poll this is also very popular in italy there isn't a tremendous amount of people in this data saying yes we have to close the borders yes we have to control the access of immigrants yes we have to send them back on the timing isn't coincidental there's an e.u. meeting at the end of june that will consider changing the rule that asylum must be claimed in the country of first entry it's that rule that is put italy on the front line of europe's migration crisis. it least treatment of those aboard the aquarius is notice to. me so changing each state has the right to manage his boundaries. but this should not put into doubt the. human rights our deepest concern is that
if the rescue capacity will be weakened by different policies by different arrangements this risk this journey might become even more risky. women and children will continue to make the crossing to southern europe at the hands of unscrupulous people smugglers they probably will be told that it just got a much harder and more dangerous journey. wrote. the international criminal court has ordered the release of john peer bamber former vice president of democratic republic of congo he was acquitted of all crimes last week judges said he couldn't be held responsible for trustees committed by his troops in central african republic between two thousand and two and two thousand and three members waiting to be sentenced on separate charges of bribing witnesses during his trial

mobilize catholic schools in the streets to excommunicate them. and that's why activists will support abortion rights have taken to the streets sent to ride president says he is in favor of the debate and he would not veto a measure even though he personally does not support abortions. this public debate has increased the social visibility of this problem this makes it easier for us in the health ministry and regional offices to speak seriously about sexual education in schools educate about contraception family planning so we can definitely prevent abortion which is not a solution for anyone for anything thousands of people who are for and against the abortion bill i would expect it to demonstrate on wednesday it is a vote that has divided the country and even though its outcome is expected to be close it has forced argentina to debate on an issue that has not been talked about
