how the story moved on august. after 25 years of importing the world's waste china through the global recycling industry into chaos. the growing pressure of agreement resulting in change we bring you the stories to the shaping the economic world we live in. counting the cost 0. south korea says the north economy has suffered its worst full in 20 years soon after pyongyang fired a warning to its neighbor. hello
welcome to al-jazeera on live from my headquarters in doha with me elizabeth peron i'm also ahead more than a 100 microns are feared dead and dozens of those rescued after 2 boats capsized off the libyan coast. to new zealand gets a new interim leader after the death of the country's 1st democratically elected president. and a breakfast at reality check for the new british prime minister the e.u. says it wants renegotiate the withdrawal agreement. north korea says wednesday's missile launches were a warning to south korea pyongyang won't sell to stop importing high tech weapons and a joint military exercises with the u.s.
the announcement on north korean state television can. suspicions that the tests were a new kind of missile but despite the tests u.s. secretary of state mike pompei remains optimistic that a new round of talks with north korea can begin next month kyung and want sanctions lifted in return for denuclearization while sanctions on north korea appear to be having a devastating effect south korea's central bank says the north's g.d.p. fell by 4 point one percent last year that's the worst drop and more than 2 decades and the 2nd consecutive year the decline let's go now to rob mcbride he's joining us live from the south korean capital seoul where the central bank released these figures about an hour ago so talk us through them rob because they're not good news for the north and they might have an impact on how willing the north is on compromising in any talks on denuclearization.
absolutely lizabeth they do make for very grim reading and shows the extent to which the sanctions are hurting the north korean economy as you mentioned there last year 2018 the economy contract by 4 point one percent in 2017 there was a further contraction of 3 and a half percent not 2017 you remember was the year that was the height of the standoff over missile and nuclear testing when these extra sanctions were imposed it adopting this policy of maximum pressure so for 2 years running the economy very much taking a hit and that compares with 2016 when the north korean economy was actually doing quite well expanding at nearly 4 percent which in that year was actually more of an expansion than south korea's economy earlier this month other figures released here in seoul and has to be pointed out that these figures are do originate from south korea north korea if it does produce these figures it certainly doesn't publicize
them figures released here show that trade between 20172018 fell by a half with a devastating impact on north korea's exports falling by 86 percent. sections like the sectors like the mining sector exports of coal particularly being hard hit to this is where north korea normally earns most of its money so it is does show how the the sanctions are biting or hurting the economy and also really impeding kim jong un's attempts to try to breathe life into the economy he has made it his goal his were one of the cornerstones of his leadership not to concentrate so much on military development but to try to develop his economy elizabeth the economy might be taking ahead but that doesn't seem to have had an impact on their missile program rob because the north koreans are frankly bragging about the latest test.
absolutely in their position always is that sanctions don't work it just makes them more determined to. go on to force through and to carry on with these provocative tests these missile tests they the test that happened thursday morning they confirmed that kim jong un himself oversaw the test also saying that it is a new type of guided weapon which seems to be now confirmed by analysts here in south korea also in japan who've been studying further the data the defense ministry here in seoul seems to confirm that it is based on a russian design called an skandha missile which is a has a guidance system which can change direction and which worryingly for the military here in south korea and also in japan means that it is harder to intercept with the anti missile systems already in existence and those being developed so there is
concern here further concern as well that a lot of the anger seems to be directed at south korea they have called south koreans warmongers for taking part in these exercises coming up next month also for importing sophisticated military hardware such as the f. 35 stealth fighter but a lot of the anger not directed interestingly at the u.s. the north koreans still following this line of trying to keep up friendly relations with the trump of ministration in the hope as they see it of trying to get back to the negotiating table and trying to get some relief from these sanctions rob thank you very much for that brought macbride with the very latest live in seoul let's move on to other news now in the u.n. says as many as 150 very g.'s in migrants may have drowned off the libyan coast they were on board to bother with that left the town of homs east of the capital tripoli with around $300.00 people on board only harf of them could be rescued and

a really bleak milestone really bad is thinking about it comes just weeks after more than 50 people lost their lives in a detention center following an asse strike into giora and really once again stresses the edge and see if it was needed of a need for a shift in approach to the situation in libya in the mediterranean. libya's coast guard continues to take migrants to 2 jura the detention center holding mostly african migrants that was bombed 3 weeks ago by air forces believed to be loyal to the warlord khalifa haftar it's near the front line of fighting as have to are tries to take the capital the u.n. says the current model which is backed by the e.u. must change one where libya's coast guard intercepts and forcibly returns people caught trying to cross the sea. there's a conflict going on in my years and become a pawn in this game they're used to make money for people who have to pay their passage you know she servitude in effect and then there was the. not
a happy situation. really away from her family was risky certainly not the way to go the u.n. refugee agency estimates that 6000 other refugees and migrants are being held in libyan detention centers even though they haven't committed a crime yet they remain highly at risk of getting caught in the conflict or dying at sea and are schapelle al-jazeera. mohammad the nasser has been sworn in and as tennessee is entering president after the death of president the subsea 92 orders have guided to nazir into a new era of democracy after protests in 2011 which toppled longtime leaders and 11 ben ali and sparked a wave of uprisings in the region a general election will be held within 3 months. and has more. new phase in tunisia's government the speaker of parliament mohamed in

and then tunisia's 1st democratically elected president he helped draft a new constitution guaranteeing freedom of speech. and then to have his accomplishments though were often overshadowed by a weak economy and high unemployment rate there is despair nobody can deny that there is the sense of hopelessness nobody can deny that however in comparison to other countries there is still hope that we can fix the pot and go towards a more prosperous than $87.00 days of national mourning have been declared as the country honors the life and legacy of the same speech go nowhere is that the start of this mission on a positive note and he finished that the same way may he rest in peace his predecessors hurt the country but he was a good man who served his country no one did that before him no one shot if he she we hope the next president will be even better we hope our country will be stable and safe we have some terrorism but the country doesn't blame him it's unclear who
