the government is employed in a diplomatic standoff with from shoebridge migration policy while hundreds of refugees and migrants turned away from italy head to spain. and the u.s. secretary of state says sanctions on north korea will not be eased until it can demonstrate what he calls full cries ation but media reports from pyongyang suggest a different timeline. has been in south korea briefing regional leaders on this week's summit between president trump and kim jong il and there's also concern over the president's pledge to end joint military exercises along the korean peninsula when hey reports from seoul. after the hype of the summit with the sworn enemy came the explanation to the allies america's top diplomat mike pompei i met with the
11:02 am
south korean president in insolvent before a trilateral meeting with the foreign ministers of south korea and japan which provided an opportunity to show unity on the issue of north korea the u.s. alliances with these two countries are absolutely ironclad the declaration signed by u.s. president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un in singapore was vague there was no detail about how denuclearization will be achieved north korean state media suggested that the two leaders had agreed to similar taney s actions suggesting pyongyang could be rewarded along the way mike says that's not the case thanks and you cannot take place until such time as we have demonstrated that north korea has been completely immune despite not being told in advance south korea's foreign minister says donald trump's decision to unilaterally end joint military exercises wasn't discussed in detail in thursday's meeting north korea believes the
11:03 am
drills are a rehearsal for an invasion but the united states and its allies have always said that defense of japan says it's been assured by the u.s. that this suspension is contingent on progress on denuclearization but tokyo is still concerned about the possible implications chris earning us are ok. we believe and u.s. alliance as well. deterrence based on them play an essential role in security in the north east asia south korean seem to be generally positive about what they saw in singapore they believe it's a step in the right direction but with something is significant is joint military exercises with the u.s. being given up soon want to know what north korea will do in return at the moment that seems to be very little if anything at all similar deals have been done before and the failed only concrete change north of the border will convince most that
11:04 am
things are different this time wayne hay al jazeera sole well meanwhile the two koreas have held their first high level military talks in more than a decade south korean military leaders crossed the demarcation line on to the northern side of the border earlier on thursday and it is expected that they talked about that announcement from donald trump that he was about to end joint military exercises with. might compare the sexiest faces. in the chinese capital shortly where he's expected to meet the president xi jinping our correspondent florence louis is there for us in florence what specifically is mike pompei are going to be seeking from the chinese what kind of assurances will they be wanting from him. well martine i of i suspect this will be very much related to sanctions sanctions against north korea now and china is not just
11:05 am
a close ally it is an economic lifeline to north korea ninety percent of north korean trade is with china china is also the main access point when it comes to the international financial system and if you remember china has always been reluctant to back tough economic sanctions against north korea until late last year and the trumpet ministration has said it believes that it was these tougher sanctions that really forced north korea to change tack to stop its nuclear and missile tests too often all this branch to south korea events that eventually led to the summit taking place in singapore in on tuesday now u.s. officials post the singapore summit have made it absolutely clear that these sanctions have to stay in place so mike pompei is mission in china i suspect will have to do with making sure that the chinese are on the same page when it comes to the sanctions because we've already seen that they may not necessarily be on that same page we've heard how the ministry of the foreign ministry spokesman said just
11:06 am
hours after the meeting between trump and came that perhaps it was time to consider sanctions relief for north korea and that is absolutely not the position off u.s. officials and they're going to need chinese support for their position as well i mean this is an issue that just indicates doesn't it the kind of ambivalence with which so many of the issues have been treated with the kind of vague language that was used by the president now has got might prompt rushing around east asia trying to be a little bit more precise as to what exactly the u.s. and north korea agree to. that's right so his meeting really in this region a move heard those remarks made at the press conference in seoul as well you know he was asked what's this process going to look like this complete denuclearization that the u.s. seeks that is those were the words contain and that document signed between him and
11:07 am
trump you know might from pay or could only give assurances that it was going to be complete denuclearization that that is going to take place but he couldn't really answer the question on how exactly that process is going to look like having said that his counterparts the japanese and south korean counterparts backed him up there and that they have full faith that complete denuclearization is going to take place and now what. needs to do from his trip in beijing meeting with various officials from the chinese leadership really is to make sure that china is on board with that but the good thing about the what came out of the summit though is that i can i suspect that there will be a fair amount of goodwill coming from the chinese following that meeting in especially following the press conference given by donald trump on tuesday this is because china now has got what they want they long asked for a suspension of u.s. military drills with south korea conducted in south korean off south korean waters
11:08 am
they were asked that this they call it you will suspension so they asked they've asked for u.s. military to suspend those drills and in return north korea suspending its nuclear and missile tests and this is something that they've managed to get out of that singapore summit so i suspect there will be a lot of goodwill when they meet might compare lawrence who live in beijing thank you. the u.n. security council is due to hold an emergency session on yemen where the biggest battle in the three year long war is currently underway a military offensive by government forces and a saudi amorality coalition threatens to worsen a humanitarian crisis troops loyal to president abbott rebel mansour hadi and coalition warplanes and ships a targeting positions south of the port of her data it's all part of an operation to take this is he from the who thing rebels have controlled it since twenty fourteen the red sea port is yemen second largest and an important point of entry
11:09 am
for aid. reports. a major military operation is underway yemeni government troops are on the move to take the port of her day from truthy 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 feel a little but they are here on our way to for data and we will liberate it from the who we are determined to celebrate you and mark the end of ramadan there. daters seaports is a vital lifeline for the houthi the sardi's say that's where the shia rebels get weapons smuggled in from iran that's denied by both and the host these the
11:10 am
united nations fearing what a spokesman called a bloodbath if the data was attacked by coalition forces has proposed and you deal that would see how these hand over their 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 a. agencies are now warning of a humanitarian 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 will enter for the entire population of yemen 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 lives mostly civilians many have died of hunger and disease
11:11 am
but the fighting has gone on so far none of the attempts to have its it is. how 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 thing is out of the data and to give any capital sanaa and reinstate the government of president out of also heidi. but the rebels remain defiant firing ballistic missiles into saudi arabia and vowing to do the capital to the possible. now we can speak you know her. visiting fellow at brookings doha center thank you for joining us now how critical is this battle in tech middle in military terms in terms of ending possibly this
11:12 am
conflict after three years well i think that it's highly unlikely that the battle for her they will draw the war closer to an end and it's because you know it's supposing that there will be a successful sort of military takeover they are many questions remain what will happen to other parts of the country you know what will happen to who will run how they do or what will happen to you know the deep divides among. among yemenis i think that you know it's important to recognize that who's these as a political actor as they were back in two thousand and thirteen fourteen in the national dialogue conference titles i mean we're looking at a map. does it does appear as if who data access and control of that port gives you therefore access to supplies for the whole of who think controlled yemen absolutely it's crucial as a port as as a as a pipeline as you say you know as a lifeline for for aid. but you know the truth is have demonstrated in the past
11:13 am
that they know how to bounce back and so i am skeptical that the battle for head data will be decided as decisive as as the actors say and as we've seen there have been conflicting sort of statements coming for example of the u.s. secretary of state might prompt a zero apparently with martin griffiths the u.n. special envoy just last month said that they agreed you know to push for the escalation and a political solution but i doubt that this battle for had data would have went ahead without support from the u.s. and u.k. and so on and so there needs to be a unified a more unified political solution presented by yemenis themselves but also by these international actors who are who have been largely complicit in what's happening and what about the relatively newly appointed special envoy martin griffiths who we understand is working tirelessly on this particular issue trying to draw up some kind of formula which would lead to a deescalation in the first instance and then some form of transitional government
11:14 am
arrangement which it was leaked a week or so ago would would comprise all elements on the ground in yemen yes well of course this special envoy martin gives has an incredibly difficult job i think that given the complexity of the of the conflict in yemen given the multiple actors the multiple parties to this conflict and the polarization among him is his. the role is absolutely crucial and it will be important for him to engage with those yemenis who are not starving who are not getting killed talking specifically about yemenis outside of yemen who remain actively engaged in what's happening in their country sure they are also polarized but you will find you know anti who think the yemenis who are against the barrel of data for example they don't see it as this they don't see this is the right step forward and so i think that international actors and in particular martin gryphus need to actively engage with those yemenis who have the access who have the knowledge of how things work on the ground in yemen in order to come closer to
11:15 am
a political solution thanks thank you very much. still to come here and al-jazeera a week after the former congress rebel leader had his convictions overturned there's joy and there's pain across central africa. i told. me the weather sponsored by cattle i always hollow because some big changes in the weather across northwestern parts of europe wind and rain piling into the british isles you can see this nasty system here this is what's know this storm hector that wet and windy weather will be with us for the next eighteen to twenty four hours or so some a lot of these storms to down across the balkans and that's been the case really for the past few days if not weeks and this is the same in a western serbia where we had some big showers coming down thundering down poles
11:16 am
streaming heavy rain and you can also see a fair bit of hail all say may stay and that's the extent of the flooding that we see across parts of western as those heavy downpours rumbled through the area then and west of weather will slowly make its way further east was still quite a rush of showers to southern parts of italy quite to weather in between fighting trying moscow a great start to the world cup a than eighteen celsius in the heat of the day on thursday and there's a blustery conditions in across the british isles low countries maybe across into scandinavia some heavier showers coming in here things less lively as rico went into friday but still another blustery day showers will continue down towards the balkans but the best of the weather data to the southeast in kona athens at twenty nine but warm enough in madrid. so whether it's by cateye always. on back in price what were you hearing what were you seeing whether on line horrendous things you know it's all just there's absolutely no doubt about that or
