to and see in him the vision that they also see for libya that's what's really fueling the conflict in libya right now you mentioned france's position how can your a play a constructive role in terms of pressuring countries leverage inside libya so i think actually of picking up a really important point because i see you up in a very crucial role in this what god. has been responsible for cooperating with forces in libya who were not alleviating the situation for the microbes in libya but quite the opposite there's no way for no improvement for controlled migration into europe instead microbes antiseptic and sent back to libya and so europe should really take on a leading role here and individually and together try to put on pressure under reagan the regional powers who have like it's well documented by the u.n. panel of experts that have been violating the arms embargo and that cannot continue

several weeks after the protests began here in another development on wednesday the chief executive kerry was forced to deny a report. that she consulted with the leadership in beijing on monday night as to whether the pillay should in fact be called and she said that report is erroneous but a key advisor of hers ronny tome has said that the violence that we have seen in hong kong during the fast few days does raise the risk and the prospect that one day the pier lay might actually have to be called in for the moment hong kong remains calm but there's also plenty of acrimony and also plenty of unease. the british foreign secretary jeremy hunt says if china fails to honor its agreement over hong kong and be serious consequences he made these comments in a t.v. interview shortly after china's ambassador to the u.k. had been summoned by the foreign office lew charming made inflammatory comments

pulled out of the deal last year imposing ever widening economic sanctions including stopping iran from exporting excess nuclear material another example iran says that illustrates the u.s. is to blame for how fragile the 25th or joint comprehensive plan of action has become caught in the middle attempts by europe to salvage the j.c. have not worked iran sees europe's lack of stronger public condemnation of american sanctions as a weakness of the instrument in support of trade exchanges or a banking bypass to mitigate u.s. sanctions essentially an oil for good scheme iran's president says is tokenism. showing off it could be an acceptable action if there was real money and now it's like a bank without money. people come to this. this is a critical time for the nuclear deal if nothing changes by sunday july 7th iran says it will start enriching uranium at higher purity levels and will expand the
scope of nuclear activity stopped with the signing of the deal. with. the interest of the region and the world the best thing for america to do is return from their mistake. and runs out of patience world leaders are running out of time . rolling back on the deal is meant to be a way for iran to take back some autonomy with regards to its nuclear program something it gave up for economic relief that iranians say they have yet to fully experience it's also meant to call into question the commitment of the remaining signatories to the 2015 deal who no doubt worried that this diplomatic stress test might be the thing that breaks. talks have resumed between sudan's opposition and the ruling military genter over transfer of power to a civilian led government the gauche ations between the 2 sides collapsed a month ago after security forces violently raided

hello again welcome back to your international weather forecast we have seen plenty of weather here across parts of central europe we do have a lot of thunderstorms that are rolling across parts of france italy as well as over towards hungary now some of these storms did cause problems in terms of large hail as well as gusty winds so we're going to still monitor these in the next few days up towards the north though it is going to be quite windy across parts of northern and north eastern europe we do have a system that's pushing through we're not a lot of clouds so a rain it will be the winds in some of those winds could cause trees to fall as well as power lines to come down as well down. but imagine c. meeting on the attack on a migrant detention center in libya proving ambassador to the u.n. security council president assad them as a quandary speaking now that an important urgent meeting was needed souls who were
these and we're going to know we're going to leave this file of you know that and be shown meeting on libya because here in our program a 5th things evolve in a new id we will have a new medium before that because the media we've already agreed. that house until now of the s. g.'s statement calls for a. for investigation independent investigation we fully agree on a statement serial delegations also called to get a unanimous. condemnation of the for the issue an old saw demand for a new b.c. asian and accountability civil rights era most of that is also likely given to the . security council was unable to agree press on its because one member is still waiting on instruction make sure i would work but we are still working on
that i think you would like to. come here. we can result in a special session of their united nations are waiting on libya appears to be inconclusive the representative there was asked about 2 key issues the matter of justice and accountability for the killing of 44 migrants mostly african migrants at a detention center in tripoli of course have been calls for an independent investigation so we have to see what emerges from vast and then no indication as to what will happen in terms of the un security council uniting on a common position on libya of course as there are calls for deescalation of that 3 month offensive by $35.00 to on tripoli but of course as we know libya is a main transit point for refugees and migrants from africa and the middle east trying to reach europe there are an estimated 670000 of them in libya or than
5000 kept in 60 government detention centers across the country many are from countries like mali sudan somalia and eritrea and mostly trying to reach italy by crossing the mediterranean but thousands have been picked up by the libyan coast guard which is supported by the e.u. and sent back to tripoli but the airstrike on this a migrant center has really heaped yet more scrutiny on european immigration policy after a week in which italy's hard line rejection of rescued migrants has grabbed the headlines paul brennan reports. the carnage of the detention center as strike vividly highlights the danger thousands of migrants face in camps all across northern libya and coming at the same time as the ongoing dispute between italy and the ngo group c. watch there is intense pressure for a new approach that needs to be an end to the toxicity of the political debate
around what to do with refugees and migrants there needs to be an end to politicians seeing this as a political trophy to win and a means to be reframed as a primarily humanitarian issue carol or a kept ship at sea watch $340.00 migrants on lampedusa in defiance of the italian government last weekend has now been released from house arrest but she's gone into hiding after threats to his safety and she may yet face charges a prospect strongly criticized by the n.g.o.s she works for. and every minute that she view a humanitarian ship carrying people rescued at sea which just wants to bring them safely to harbor as the biggest most urgent threat security and public order makes italy look ridiculous libya and strike can see watch disputed given fresh impetus to humanitarian campaigners across europe in paris on wednesday protesters showed their solidarity with care all around she was just appalling. and she still
because of that and that's a little and in strasbourg demonstrators from the spanish group open arms more to rescue about next to the european parliament building edging any police to end the criminalization of the ngos who operate in the mediterranean but the architect of italy's closed ports policy has issued an angry and sarcastic reaction to carla records his release it was a series all over europe back us released but what was the outcome apart from the battle maybe the judge drank a glass of wine a young lady who said she was raped white german even a little bored and therefore legitimize not to care about the north of a state if someone. things i will give up they're wrong which if someone thinks i will stop them they're wrong that it's another hot and tense summer is looming on europe's southern front here paul brennan al jazeera. extreme poverty is on the rise in argentina a new study shows 3000000 people have fallen below the poverty line in just the

a deal they fear the peace process could be under threat aren't the reports now from the european parliament in strasburg. they've been choosing their new president at the european parliament very soon breck seats will go right back to the top of the agenda one of either boris johnson or jeremy hunt's will become the u.k.'s new prime minister and both men say they're prepared to take the u.k. out of the european union by the end of october without a deal as it stands the european position remains that everything will be done to protect islands from being destabilized in that event we have very firm supporting the fact that we want to see most of them want to avoid a hard in order and we want to respect them see forgot those things they could be overseeing the market. but how hunts and johnson both suggest they would get around the issue of customs checks at the irish border by simply waving goods through towards the u.k. but things like food travelling into the e.u.
the other way would have to be checked to ensure all meets european standards is only some which it can do and that's puts ireland in an impossible position it cannot carry out those checks without customs posts that means a closed border potentially instituted by islands and in breach of the peace process it's a sworn not to destabilise you're going to be left with a chaotic situation because you're going to have a border which is going to crossings with chand imagined before night and secondly are the consequences of our peace process what's the consequences trade there is france is the only part of more pronounced 6 or 7 times past the border before the export market. happened for instance so as a consequence of that i don't know of all. the realisation of this is dorling here with several european countries now asking ireland how it plans to square the circle there is no answer there is
a genuine and growing concern both here and in brussels of the language being used by both boris johnson and jeremy hunt is having the effects of forcing arland into a corner the u.k. can say all it wants about having a no deal breck's it and keeping the irish border open but that is not a luxury available to our limbs. during a trip to positions taken by both huns and johnson is echoed by the brics it party which maintains a simple insistence that everything will be ok it is now setting the agenda for the ruling conservative party nobody wants. to try to whole thing was a hoax just to get in the white race of the top. of. the list the u.k. parliament stops them the position taken by either hunter or johnson puts the european union's back against the wall erland will soon find out if it still has the unswerving support of the. sleeve of his era in strasbourg. the kremlin says the details of a fire that killed 14 russian sailors on
a submarine will not be made public because they include classified information people have been paying tribute to those who were killed russian defense ministry says the crew were able to evacuate a civilian on board before closing the hatch to contain the fire the submarine was based out of the northern town of several more risk russian officials say it had been studying the arctic sea floor at least one person has been killed after a volcano erupted on the island of strong bali in its early eruption and vallet a popular tourist destination in ash and sent many people fleeing the victim is thought to be a male hiker who was hit by a falling stone the stromboli volcano is one of the most active on the planet and has been under an almost constant state of eruption since 1932. now greenpeace is calling on the u.n. to create a new global ocean treaty to protect international arena environments from deep sea mining a new report by the group warns deep sea mining could cause irreversible damage to
sensitive marine ecosystems it also says it could worsen climate change by releasing vast quantities of carbon dioxide the high cost of operations of so far prevented deep mining projects from international waters but advances in technology could change that only about 5 percent of the sea floor has been mapped and a growing number of countries on now eyeing it as a possible source of wealth or mccallum is head of oceans at greenpeace u.k. he says the un's regulatory body has shown itself to be irresponsible in managing the seabed. we don't know very much about the deep ocean this is why quantifying the damage is a very tricky task and is why scientists have one that you know irreversible damage could mean loss of species that live only in tiny parts of the deep ocean and once they're gone they really are gone there's no bringing them back it could mean pollution being taken up through the water column and spread throughout the oceans there are number of ways that deep sea mining could really impact on the ocean and
as i said we are still understanding the value of your devotion we know that it stores a lot of carbon source so at a time when we should be doing everything we can to make sure that we're prepared to tackle climate change and mitigate against the worst impacts of climate change to disrupt carbon stores on the deep sea but it seems a complete folly the international civil authority who manage the seabed and in theory regulate deep sea mining they've been selling off licenses to explore the seabed they've even sold a license for the lost city which is a unesco world heritage recognised site and one that greenpeace are going to with our ships be esperanza in the coming weeks so they're just proving themselves to be irresponsible that managing the sea but i'm way worried that the deep sea mining industry are going to be going to these places and like the scientists of one causing irreversible damage to them or oil and gas production in the united states is booming in is really to say that means more jobs and less reliance on foreign
