6:01 am
right. football fever in the russia as this is world cup host get ready for the kickoff in just a few hours time. state is in seoul where he's been briefing south korea's president on tuesday a meeting between donald trump and north korea's leader kim jong un. has also met the foreman says of south korea and japan comes concession to end military drills with seoul calls america's two biggest allies in the asia pacific region off gone south korea's foreign minister called the summit a turning point in denuclearizing the korean peninsula. this is the first time that the higher stuff after north korea promised the president of the united states to
6:02 am
route twelve it's the complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula which we believe there stirred the pullet political momentum for action to resolve the north korean nuclear issue secondly we should be understanding that the june twelfth summit is not the end but a new beginning tourers a denuclearized and peace for the korean peninsula. as autocross pondered now wayne hay joins us live from seoul so when in many ways the hard work begins now does that trying to put some flesh on those rather bare bones of the summit declaration . yes well clearly the declaration between donald trump and kim jong il in singapore was fairly vague we were told to not expect too many details ahead of that summit in the way of concrete deals or anything like that but it was extremely light on detail and i think this trip by mike pompei o the u.s.
6:03 am
secretary of state not just to solve but he's also going to beijing after his visit to the south korean capital is about giving some more details to president mungy in to the foreign ministers of south korea and japan and china as well and also to perhaps ease some concerns that they have been raised about that summit in singapore particularly after that media conference when donald trump appeared to give away quite a lot there's been concern perhaps that there would be a phased approach to denuclearize ation for example which is something that the u.s. has always said will not happen that they want to complete denuclearization before there will be any sort of relief offered to north korea will might in this media conference in the last few minutes when to address some of those concerns and he said that they will be no economical sanctions relief until complete denuclearization is complete he said there will be no phased approach when it comes
6:04 am
to denuclearization and he said that the north korean korean leader kim jong un was made aware of that in the meeting with donald trump in singapore and you mentioned their way of the u.s. does i mean laterally to halt military exercises in south korea. yes well i think this is probably a case of two different scenarios there may have been some tough questions behind closed doors perhaps mainly from the south korean president jay into my pompei o about why they were not told in advance that this was going to happen that donald trump was going to as he says end the war games with south korea because that provocative and they too expensive the south korean foreign minister in the last few moments really played down those concerns saying that they were not discussed a lot in their trilateral meeting this morning and that it was really when it comes to the military alliance
6:05 am
a matter for the military to discuss but there were some concerns about this issue raised again by japan's foreign minister we understand that any exercise is contingent upon the p ok action new creation we also understand that united states maintains its commitment to defend our allies in japan u.s. security commitment and u.s. forces in japan poster remain unchanged in any case we would like to maintain close contact with them since these issues may also affect the security of the region so that is the japanese foreign minister talking about that announcement from donald trump in singapore that the joint military exercises between the u.s. and south korea would come to an indian he said that those military exercises this is the japanese foreign minister play an essential role in security in the region
6:06 am
so i suspect even though they are saying that this was not a big part of the trilateral talks on thursday morning i suspect that this may well be an issue that we'll hear more about in the coming days and weeks absolutely ok for the moment i mean thanks for joining us there the latest from seoul. now the saudi a morass a coalition fighting in yemen has begun a large scale offensive to take control of the port city of her data from hoofy rebels that despite u.n. warnings of catastrophic humanitarian consequences the security council will hold an emergency meeting in the next twenty four hours to discuss the situation the red sea ports is yemen's second largest and an important point of entry for age shipments intense airstrikes of hitler case in south of the data they say they responded by launching missiles at a coalition ship the rebels seized her data in two thousand and fourteen. has more . a major military operation is underway
6:07 am
yemeni government troops are on the move to take the port of her data from the rebels warplanes and warships of the saudi emirate coalition have also launched strikes on the city and reinforcements are joining soldiers on the ground for what many say is a decisive battle for control over northern yemen but they do tell of that they are here on our way to for data and we will liberate it from the we are determined to celebrate you and mark the end of ramadan there. daters seaports is a vital lifeline for the whole thesis the sardis say that's where the shia rebels get weapons smuggled in from iran that denied by both and the host the united nations fearing what a spokesman called a bloodbath if the data was attacked by coalition forces has proposed and you deal
6:08 am
that would see houthi as hand over the support to the un but that wasn't accepted the bourse also a vital lifeline for millions of civilians caught up in the war and aid agencies are now warning of where your money to. catastrophe they say supply routes for urgently needed aid will be caught and more than a quarter of a million lives are at risk the fact that we have more military operations going on will just exacerbate the situation which means that not enough we entered for the entire population of human we have already today eighty percent of the yemeni people who rely heavily on humanitarian aid. the war in yemen has already claimed tens of thousands of lies mostly civilians many have died of hunger and disease but the fighting has gone on so far none of the attempts to have an. old house
6:09 am
succeeded none of the players are working together or the most of the players so they can bring your money to the table the saudi coalition leads the campaign to drive the whole things out of the data and to give any capital and reinstate the government of president. of the rebels' remained defiant firing blistering besides into saudi arabia and bahrain today in the capital to the. research and fellow at georgetown university and she says both sides are prepared to fight to the bitter end which would be disastrous for civilians. i think it became very clear when former president i got the muscle that was built by the host these that this war is going to have to end militarily because. he's and the saudis
6:10 am
having to have a clear victory and i think that's a problem because when you talk about you know twenty seven million people now are saying that yemen it's twenty nine million people we're letting you know what we're letting the egos of big countries come in the way and i think that both sides want to come out as victors that so there's no comparison and there are powers saudi arabia the u.a.e. are more powerful however the who is on the ground have proved that they don't care about civilian life just as much and would rather engage in a fight to death since there are no peace talks on the table and the worry here as about the yemeni people caught in between the us. here and general assembly has passed a non-binding resolution condemning israel for using excessive force against palestinian protesters in gaza israeli soldiers have shot dead at least one hundred twenty nine demonstrates is at the border since march mike hanna reports from the united nations the general assembly is now voting members of the general assembly prepared
6:11 am
to vote the resolution aimed at the protection of the palestinian civilian population against what it calls excessive force but it took a long debate and several procedural votes forced by the u.s. to get to this point earlier intent on making hamas accountable the u.s. had introduced an amendment accusing him us of being the prominent actor in the ongoing violence but this was opposed by the sponsors of the original resolution who called for a vote on the amendment to be denied this attempt to obstruct a vote on an amendment proposed by the united states is shameful i call on all member states to oppose this motion and vote no sixty two voted in favor of the amendments fifty eight against but the general assembly president ruled a two thirds majority was needed. the stick by the us and yet another vote was held to gauge whether there was a simple majority support for the u.s.
6:12 am
position there was not essentially supporting the two thirds rule by seventy eight votes against fifty nine confirming the us amendments had failed to pass all of you are a very sophisticated diploma you know the real thing and you know the games and the gimmicks and we trust you fully to do that i think and to sift between those who try for the last minute for expediency to fool who by introducing amendments and these are in bad faith because they are not genuine the original resolution was vigorously attacked by israel by thier boarding the from evolution you are empowering the math over the past two months we have heard from some of the war the war a friend of about the thought called the palestinian great mileage of return if melania the head of the hamas president eduard one of turkey and other of. the support for
6:13 am
the the tax against these were but to no avail when the vote was finally taken it was passed by a substantial majority one hundred twenty members voted in favor forty five abstained and only eight including the united states opposed while these general assembly votes are largely symbolic this one has some teeth it calls on the secretary general to look into how best to protect palestinian civilians to look at the viability of an international protection force and to report back to the general assembly within sixty days. underlying the sense of urgency and mental powers serious the crisis on the ground since the current round of protests began more than one hundred palestinians have been killed over ten thousand injured many by directed sniper fire mike hanna al-jazeera united nations. so
