3:00 am
the strength here is that because we have extensive network people with us and actually shannon with. them. these are by far the strongest measures ever and post on north korea being united nations security council approves a new sanctions targeting north korea and its nuclear program. about this and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up the search for
3:01 am
survivors begins in the florida keys where officials fear a humanitarian crisis and the aftermath of hurricane. britain's parliament not only votes in favor of key legislation to start its brags it from the european union. britain and sweden to seek a u.n. meeting on the rohingya crisis a day after its human rights chief denounced me in modern. united nations security council has approved a new set of sanctions aimed at north korea's nuclear program the sanctions include a ban on all countries hiring north korean workers and importing textiles from the country to major sources of foreign currency but the u.s. has had to water down its draft resolution to win support from russia and china it had wanted to ban all oil and natural gas exports to north korea but it's had to
3:02 am
settle for a reduction in fuel supplies the original draft included a freeze on all foreign financial assets of the government and its leader kim jong un as well as a travel ban. well the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. said the new sanctions mark a big increase in pressure on north korea previous efforts to bring north korea to the negotiating table have failed they have repeatedly walked back every commitment they have made today the security council has acted in a different way today we are attempting to take the future of the north korean nuclear program out of the hands of its outlaw regime we're done trying to prod the regime to do the right thing we are now acting to stop that from having the ability to continue doing the wrong thing with china's urged the u.s. to reduce its presence in the region. the strengthening of military deployment
3:03 am
on the korean peninsula and the goal of denuclearization and peace and stability run counter to each other the deployment of the fat anti missile system severely undermines the regional strategic balance it undermines the strategic security interests of many countries china included china strongly urge is relevant parties to hold its deployment and remove related equipment when he's going to be joining us from seoul with the south korean perspective in adrian brown's in dandong that china's border with north korea but first let's go to our diplomatic editor james bays of the united nations james as we were hearing there of course is a unanimous vote but still a lot of ground separating the u.s. view of how these sanctions and china and russia's view as well very keen that there should still be some negotiation. yeah the u.s. ambassador nikki haley got what she wanted a unanimous vote but she had to weaken her resolution in order to get the u.s.
3:04 am
had an original draft of this resolution which had tougher language tougher measures in it and they knew in the end that they're not going to get it passed the chinese and the russians and even though they supported this resolution china and russia made it very clear that they don't believe that everything is being done that should be done yes there's some tougher sanctions now but both countries and they're pretty much on the same page here believe there are other things that have to happen some that the trumpet ministration won't like removing that fired missile defense system stopping any military exercises involving the u.s. and south korea stopping any talk of regime change and starting fresh talks worth noting that ambassador hailey at the end of her speech did what diplomats call off for an off ramp for the north koreans saying that north korea had not popped past the point of no return and suggesting there could be some sort
3:05 am
of talks and james of course is worth noting that although the vote on the sanctions has gone ahead it doesn't mean to say they're going to kick in tomorrow it's going to take a long period of time for these sanctions to get put into place. yes it takes time to actually put them into place and start them operating and then it takes some time considerable time perhaps for the sanctions to have an effect on north korea now it's worth noting that sanctions on north korea have been in place for years and these are cumulative sanctions you add more and more and more but they've not changed north korea's behavior and you just look back a couple of years ago when i was covering this situation and there would be a provocation from north korea the security council after some time of deliberation would act and then north korea would go quiet for weeks maybe months well that's not been the pattern since it seems about the start of the trumpet ministration
3:06 am
you've had north korean action security council reaction and then almost immediately more defiant north korean action and the pace has been speeding up james for now thanks very much indeed while we're in the hague has the latest south korea reaction from seoul and of course. north korea had warned of repercussions of these sanctions when their head how is that being interpreted in south korea. well i think in south korea certainly the government the defense ministry has been on heightened alert for some time now just a few days ago they released some information through their intelligence sources that seemed to indicate that north korea was preparing for another ballistic missile launch at any moment quite possibly an internet intercontinental ballistic missile which of course causes great concern there was some expectation that that may happen on saturday which was foundation in a day in north korea that did not happen so there will be
3:07 am
a concern that given these united nations security council resolutions have been adopted that perhaps north korea will respond with some sort of action like a missile test and it did certainly threaten to respond yesterday on monday we saw another strongly worded statement full of fiery rhetoric coming out from pyongyang from the korean central news agency the official news agency warning that there will be a response should the united states continue to push for tougher sanctions through the united nations security council so as james mentioned we seem to be stuck in this seemingly endless cycle of provocation condemnation and really there is no sign of either side the united states and south korea combined or north korea backing down from their stated positions we're in for now thanks very much indeed let's talk to adrian brown he's dong on china's border with north korea and adrian it seems as though the key to all of this is how china is going to support these
3:08 am
sanctions. yes once more the burden of sanctions falls on china's shoulders of course in the past there have been accusations of china backsliding not doing enough to enforce sanctions against north korea because china's role is so key it accounts for the bulk of north korea's trade and most of that trade passes through the same. dandong now on monday it was very much business as usual empty trucks were coming across the border into china from north korea those trucks were returning fully laden we managed to look inside the customs yard here in dun dong and we saw lorries laden with really of a variety an eclectic array of cargoes proof that these sanctions don't cover a lot of what china is able to continue sending to north korea things like you know building materials and food now china of course has been against the idea of
3:09 am
cutting off the oil to north korea so it will be relieved but that is not going to happen now the oil will continue to be pumped underground into north korea they'll only be a slight reduction and also a slight reduction in refined petroleum products now china has always insisted that you know sanctions in themselves will not work it favors negotiation and diplomacy and i think essentially the u.n. security council said fine you take the lead now you try and resolve this crisis if you don't feel sanctions are working now a short time ago the ministry of foreign affairs issued a brief statement saying that it hopes that sanctions can be fully implemented without in a sense is china talking to itself because as i say the onus is on china to generally enforce most of these sanctions and it also wants more restated its opposition to the third anti missile defense system that of course is something in many ways that china fears more than even what north korea has been doing in recent weeks and adrian you je the chinese ambassador to the u.n.
3:10 am
whom we heard speaking after that unanimous vote at the security council also talked about the fears that china has of regime change in north korea why is china so concerned about regime change there. well i think it has to be said that i think kim jong un knows full well that china's leaders do not want his regime to collapse because. what would happen you could have hundreds of thousands of refugees pouring across this border swimming across this very river into china creating all sorts of instability and then you have the prospect of a united democratic south korea and also the possibility of u.s. military bases right on china's border and that really would be the doomsday scenario for china's leaders. adrian brown live for us in diamond dong on the china north korea border thank you very much indeed. what has been known as hurricane has
3:11 am
now weakened to a tropical storm as it made landfall in the u.s. mainland at least eight people have died in the u.s. and dozens more in the caribbean along this destructive path people in the state of florida are beginning to assess the damage. reports from tampa. the search for survivors begins in the florida keys where fishes fear a humanitarian crisis and untold number of people defied evacuation orders ahead of him as a rival despite warnings and staying would be suicide. was lifted by the storm surge and carried across the highway one and posited about one hundred meters from where ridge line came from as the florida death toll rises in other parts of the state have begun to clean up the storm a category four hurricane at its first u.s. landfall left a trail of destruction from miami to naples further to the north the city of tampa

3:20 am
you're watching i'll just say well here's a quick reminder of our top stories the united nations security council has agreed to impose new sanctions on north korea they severely restrict fuel supplies and blocks north korea textile exports and also ban foreign countries from hiring north korean workers what's been known as hurrican has now weakened to a tropical storm after it ravaged through the florida keys in the u.s. northeastern florida is now facing flash floods as the storm heads out of the state towards georgia. the british parliament has passed a controversial bill that would give ministers power to bypass parliament and create new laws the government says it's essential to allow the u.k. to leave the european union smoothly critics say it will dramatically undermine a parliamentary democracy in britain lawrence live reports from westminster.
3:21 am
there are still those who demand the u.k. remains in the european union but judging by these tiny protests outside parliament increasingly few believe it's actually possible. that the basin votes were just one stage of an enormous process albeit an extremely important one the government's wants to hand power to ministers to be able to change e.u. laws into british ones without consulting parliaments many opposition politicians say that is a threat to democracy but a notable number who support breck's it voted not with their party but with the government's they said must be made to happen i knew it would become precocious and i knew it would be difficult and i knew we would see something of what we're seeing now which is a real reaction from those people who prefer the european union to make our laws rather than the people of the united kingdom and there will be i find i'm sure turn this bill into one the ruling conservatives ordered every single m.p.
3:22 am
to toe the line even the most passionate pro europeans for me there's no two more fundamental british values than democracy and the rule of law and this bill strikes at the heart of both democracy and the rule of law because it prevents parliament from scrutinizing laws and it prevents the courts from ensuring that ministers any abuse that powers this country will leave the european union that back of the government lost the vote it probably would have collapse it didn't so the process moves on it's all enormously difficult for supporters of the whole point is to make the country more democratic to increase parliamentary solver. and yet the complaints is they're doing something profoundly anti-democratic to get there and that's very uncomfortable for many m.p.'s it's also procedural as of yet there is nobody in the offering any clear vision as to what britain is supposed to look like after bricks it in twenty nine seen. the al-jazeera in london bergen and sweden
