of could cuts and will be transparent about how much oil it sending north korea is seen as a major change in stance but china's top short of halting all feel supplies beijing's concerned it will lead to a collapse in regime and ask tensions even further something beijing does not want here's the chinese ambassador to the u.n. sanctions are not an end in themselves but an effective means to bring those back on the track for peace. and political solutions how we will narrow and bumpy in maybe the lord to world peace station through dialogue is still open and. china's compliance with all these sanctions is possibly the biggest blow to north korea most of the north korean labor outside the country is in china the hard currency they send back supports pyongyang's nuclear ambitions and after the last round of sanctions in september all north korean companies in china will have

says it will provide ukraine with what it calls and hans defensive capabilities in its battle against russian aligned separatists in the east of the country the decision marks a significant increase in american support for ukraine weapons are expected to include anti-tank missiles still need to approve the sale once president donald trump signs off on it well than ten thousand people have died in the three year conflict in eastern ukraine stephen fish is a professor of political science at the university of california berkeley he says america's support will have little impact. the truth this is that this is not a game changer on the ground in ukraine it's not even clear yet that the mts had missiles that you referenced in the introduction of the story will be sold those javelin anti-tank missiles really what ukrainians which they promise now really are just sniper rifles this is not going to change things on the ground in moscow knows that this is not striking fear and the heart of anybody in the defense ministry in moscow this is again it's a way of the trump way that the trump administrative can show first of all that
8:17 am
it's doing something that obama did not do which is to sell non-lethal telt lethal aid all defense of a to ukraine but also to show people in congress that he really cares about ukraine and to the political advantage of showing that he's not in bed with the russians entirely i really don't think this is this is all that big a deal though we'll have to see if this ends up ramping up and leading to larger arms sales to ukraine it could make a difference but so far we don't see of evidence of that. spanish prime as america has rejected an offer by alstead catalan president college peer to more to meet following thursday's we saw election catalonia as three prime independent parties won seventy seats in a one hundred thirty five seat parliament but the pros spain cisterns party won the highest number of seats with thirty seven it means a slim and reduced majority for the pro independence parties or brother reports from barcelona. when all sides claim victory who actually wins
8:18 am
it's a question catalans are asking themselves today winning thirty seven parliamentary seats to learning is biggest single party is now the citizens party. leader in this i don't mind us. but the three main secessionist parties together one seventy seats and so they hold the parliamentary majority council only has deposed president carlos priester more celebrated in brussels where he'd fled to avoid arrest on sedition charges and he's made a new offer to the government in madrid and i get sent legal such. that i'm willing to meet prime minister ahoy in brussels or any other european state that is in spain for obvious reasons i'm willing to do it so that we can address this new political era starting in catalonia spain and europe it is an era presided over by political solutions not by common repression that we find ourselves in now the
8:19 am
response today from the spanish government suggests dialogue might just be possible that. the person i would need to sit down with is the winner of the election and that's. where i will make an effort to maintain a dialogue with whatever government comes out of these elections but as i've said before i will also ensure that we follow the law. on polling day voters of all sides spoke to us about wanting a return to normality with the results now in a straw poll of barcelona citizens found dissatisfaction with the outcome. without favoring one side or another i think they've hurt catalonia a lot with this independence issue. i think that the citizens party which one doesn't represent the majority of catalans i think the majority of people favor the probably independence parties. i don't think it's
8:20 am
a good result to lift us parties have been marginalized and i don't see a solution for the differences between two clear blocks. so for now the spotlight appears to be on the attitude of the new catalan government i would say they will slightly step back this doesn't mean that they waited and renounced today independence more but they will i think they got softer approach first because they were slightly less than fifty percent of the vote and they think that's important sank on because they're hardline by the chinese government in this elections have produced a rather messy outcome with both sides able to take positives from the results but neither side able to land the kind of knockout blow that they might have hoped for everything now depends on the secessionist bloc and whether they will choose confrontation with madrid or compromise hope brennen al-jazeera barcelona. yes jury has found two formless south american football officials guilty in

8:26 am
they can't stop talking about it. but the pro-life politicians are not just playing defense defining life as starting from conception could alter matic lee make any abortion illegal. at the moment there are units like this one at least in brazil cities which offer women the chance to get an abortion under a very exceptional set of circumstances but if the constitution is changed then even women who have been raped or his pregnancy is in danger in their own life might be out of options that has government health professionals the plea worried yes that you know that if congress approves this changed. we foresee that women will look to climb to stand increasing their chances of dying the number of deaths related to illegal abortion in brazil ohio already and if the cases that are now allowed in the country become illegal we're looking at an academic i have a george here brazilian supreme don't see the issue that way it is deeply religious
