to help strengthen the role of the organization going forward could well judging by what's happened the last couple of hours be a very very long conference lasting possibly several days i was going to ask you and i've a feeling and i know the answer to this after what you've just been saying what are the complications that exist here in getting the o.p.c. w to blame to apportion blame for chemical attacks. well there's a huge major philosophical question i think that's really been touched on by delegates here this morning the a.p.c. w. as you know is a technical body it's avoided wading into grand political diplomatic discussions by having basically chemical weapons inspectors go into the ground say exactly whether or not weapons have been used and possibly even say what kind of chemical weapons have been used but of course it's fallen short of attributing blame if it does attribute blame which is what the u.k. wants in order to strengthen the role of the a.p.c. w.
at least that's what it hopes will be the role of the body going forward it carries with it of course an awful lot of political baggage in russia while its independence may be forfeited it could end up being misused it's a political weapon for certain nations to push their agendas forth but of course the u.k. is arguing look in the last twenty years we've seen a rapid increase a vast increase in the use of chemical weapons from syria from salisbury and also in malaysia and it's time now to give the o.p.c. w. bore power they have many things out of there as they have back of their live in the hague. it with zero still to come on the program. a stray sheep in the u.s. of a delays and reuniting thousands of migrant children separated from their parents divers such a flooded cave in thailand for missing teenage footballers. and its force
a long awaited win for andy murray feingold be here with the details in the race. germany's chancellor has discussed europe's migration crisis with spain's prime minister in berlin for the e.u. summit on thursday i go to merkel is under pressure from her coalition partners to find an e.u. wide solution to stem the flow of refugees and immigrants she's due to meet the e.u. council president donald tusk later with european leaders recognize that reform is needed on migration but they're divided over the approach germany spain and france want to joint european solution to integration the german chancellor is pushing for a deal that distributes the number of refugees and migrants more evenly across the continent but it's allee's new populist government is against that idea it's getting tough on migration and is refusing to let migrant ships like this one to
dock at its ports its only wants african countries particularly libya to help to curb the migration flow by setting up centers to screen asylum applicants the czech republic hungary poland and slovakia also share italy's view of deterring migration at transit countries let's go live now to. the germany austria border al jazeera is dominic cain is there for us so dominic the leaders have met they've both been speaking about their at their meeting at the immigration issues that they both face are they on the same page here do they see eye eye to. yes to a certain extent they do adrian the point here is that the reference to secondary migration something that mr sanchez referred to something that angle americal referred to that idea of people who arrive in the e.u. claim asylum but then move from that arrival country to a second country and claim asylum there that's something that specific issue is
some of this really energized people in bavaria certainly angela merkel's domestic allies the christian social union that this is their heartland that i'm talking to you from right now behind me the border with austria the sort of border controls that the christian social union want to see brought in here in their state but also across germany and they might well say across other parts of europe too they say that the freedom of movement which the people in these cars going past we now are exercising is something that can be abused and so they want to see some sort of control imposed that's not something that anglo-american really wants to allow to happen and so when she refers to secondary migration she's got clearly in her mind the thought of trying to keep the shang in zone that border free area in place today have meetings frankly merkel she's met with sanchez she's got donald tusk later and this evening she's meeting with her coalition partner what's the likelihood of any real progress on immigration today. well the
point here is that she doesn't want as it were just spoiled the potential for some sort of accommodation to be arrived at in brussels on thursday and friday the full e.u. summit twenty eight states meeting she had on sunday an informal working group with sixteen e.u. leaders and there wasn't real tangible progress there the question would be whether she would want to go into detail today about what's still to be discussed the meeting with mr tusk alas not so that's a private meeting it's unlikely that they'll be any statement any or any use conference after that but bear in the spare a thought for what will happen this evening that meeting of the full coalition members well that was but called by the c.s.c. the pristine social union the ones who want really happy with angela merkel's immigration policies but this time they've decided to express their exasperate with her because of the and that's when she made alongside president my car last week saying that there would be an independent a separate budget for the eurozone to remind america angela merkel's point of view
her problems just keep in mind that she feels harried from her by her alliance partners and yet one more hill that she has to climb in her bid to try to find a solution. don't have many thanks indeed i was taught it came there live on the germany austria border. the plight of the hinge of muslims living in thailand has been highlighted in a new report by the burma human rights network the report called existence to night details efforts by myanmar's government to make life difficult for him outside its borders large numbers of ranger have fled violence and poverty in myanmar to live and work in thailand now the thai government has introduced a new system a new registry system meaning that must be verified to stay in the country but because myanmar doesn't recognize them as citizens many now face deportation from thailand but most are too scared to return to their country of birth effectively
rendering them stateless joe when is executive director of the berman human burma human rights network he joins us now live from bangkok good to have you with us so why have you released this report now what are you hoping to achieve with it. fossil fuel it is the third june is the deadline for the migrant undocumented migrant workers in thailand among them there are thousands of muslim from burma who . c.i. has been identification has been denied from burma as authorities immigration in thailand so they tie authorities. are offering. and are committed by going to work out in thailand to get to their country of origin to government issues a vote of past two to despicable and the immigration department from burma they are the one who discriminating the people based on their religion and ethnicity and one
of the syria targeted is the muslim community from burma and that includes including the rohingya people and also common ethnicities there are different different ethnicities among the muslims are now being vulnerable in thailand now because we acknowledge that the tired already is is there trying to help these undocumented people but the problem of burmese discriminate of citizenship law is not creating stateless people it within thailand june thirtieth is the deadline set by the time for a ceasefire migrant myanmar workers to have a difficult of of identity or to be deported four days from now what can be done in such a short space of time. i think this issue has been a long time we have been raising these issues many times since march we have been raising these these issues to media in the publishing of press release i think
tires all of these has he is aware of the situation and they we believe that they are trying to find some solution but i think this is the root cause is not highland that was the root cause is the burma burma is on who has a policy of discrimination on its minorities and now you can see one point one million stateless become a ruling the people become a state left because of this policy and also there are thousands of thousand people in neighboring countries like thailand and malaysia these people have been denied systematically their their solution price in their own country of origin so these peoples are vulnerable if they are tired saudis will deport these diversity has already mentioned in the law that after thirty june if those people are not do not have anything identity they will be arrested fine and jailed or they will be deported so one of the large one of the. the was vulnerable people is people who have
a children because the children when they go to school big to receive some kind of identity to to prove and then this will be spared but the parents those who doesn't have any cities any any kind of identity they will be deported so it will be children and family they teach the children will be separated from their family and these people those who are deported will not be able to go back come back two years so that's a very dangerous situation for the people and we don't want them this children to suffer all of this but all this problem goes to goes back to burma but my burmese immigration those who come to thailand are they are the ones who practice in this discriminated system. structure so many facts they could bring with us sure when the executive director of human rights now. the u.n. secretary general antonio is calling on the world not to abandon the united nations agency for palestinian refugees the organization known as. says that it's facing a quarter of a billion dollar shortfall and may soon have to cut emergency assistance the u.s.

significant new funding we will have to begin taking very difficult measures in july impacting the level of services as well as our staff the situation will be particularly critical for emergency operations in the west bank and in gaza what is at risk is food for one million people. in the gaza strip as ever at these sort of pledging conferences is a little hard to work out exactly what is new money and what has already been committed by countries in the past it appears though there are some new funds coming from the e.u. from mexico from sweden and from belgium and other countries like the u.k. bringing forward some of their funding the a total amounts though are nowhere near the shortfall of two hundred fifty million dollars and the u.n. is still desperately looking for further funding the pen more protests against the u.s. government's actions of on migration demonstrators are demanding answers over delays

story we've read about them but to actually see these children pressed up against the glass. with these kids was expression of emotion as a crisis on the southern border of the u.s. intensifies and government agencies scramble to undo a family separation policy put into place and then reverse by trump protests grow in america a digital at the san diego border a protest at a tent city for migrants near el paso is sitting in seattle and protests in new york and some are trying to take their message straight to trump well there have been protests in several cities across america they're particularly potent in small and medium sized cities along the border because here it's an issue that's urgent and it's real i think this is an expression of of compassion and take taking to the streets in the name of justice in the name of these these children is just that a silhouette begging so many questions who are they where are they going will they

standing a couple inches of mud and that's making things very difficult for the rescue operations in that we know that the divers have been able to go into the cave network about a kilometer or setting up a base there they strung in an electric cable so they can have power to stage there and go further in there been indications that the boys in the coats are still in there they have found handprints and some bags inside this cave network so they're still holding out hope that they're alive in there there are many challenges again yes it's a vast network but parts of it are cavities that will have air most likely in parts of it are going to be flooded so even when they find the boys in their coats they're going to have to bring them back out if the water stays in this cave network bring them back out train them on scuba very basic scuba operations so they can come out through the mouth of the cave here now helicopters have been flying on monday trying to look for another way out and also look for chimneys where they can possibly drop supplies down to the boys and a message saying we're out here we're looking for you right now no definitive proof
that the boys are still alive there's been a makeshift village set up here just outside the mouth of the cave there's a tent area for family members and friends and villagers and that's growing quite bit quite a bit there about one hundred hundreds of people there and then also the rescue operation minister of interior just walked out of the cave a couple minutes ago the governor of chennai province is still in there talking and working with the rescue workers now there are deaths many different kinds of rescue workers here you've got navy seal divers you've got the national police you've got the army and you also got the national parks people here this is a national park in thailand they're also working all of them working together again this is the third day now trying to find any hope any indication they're holding out hope that those boys and their coach are live in this cave network. if you're enduring a chilly southern hemisphere winter but it's glorious weather stephanie shows me across most of western europe a lovely summer's day steph hit with a forecast of just about and then we're in a ruined city in the southern philippines where it's feared that the fight against

we're expecting then the strong winds and the heavy rain will gradually work its way towards the northeast and they could be your tornado in with that as well certainly some large hail to look out for and some flooding rains as well the most at risk region is here across the northern parts of turkey in the southern parts of greece i think that's where there's the greatest risk of seeing some severe weather during the course of the day for the north though there's also this little patch here here we're likely to see quite a lot of hail particular on the higher ground and that could give us quite a few problems so that's where all the unsettled weather is them but towards the west not a great deal of cloud here at all and that's where it's certainly been very warm recently london made it to thirty eight point one degree yesterday that was its highest temperature so far this year certainly very warm weather being enjoyed there and it's going to stay very warm over the next few days maybe london won't be quite as hot as further west across the british isles a little bit more of a breeze here. the weather sponsored by qatar airways.
