6:07 am
a foreign relations between south and north korea hopes being raised following the new year address by came john on north korea's leader suggested sending a team to the winter games starting in south korea next month. government leaders in seoul were quick to seize the opportunity. the government proposes to hold high level talks with north korea on january ninth at the peace house in panmunjom true spillages to discuss north korea's participation in the pyongyang winter olympics. south korea's president favors talks with the north as a way of managing pyongyang's nuclear and missile threats. and the improvement of relations between north and south korea cannot go separately with the resolving north korea's nuclear program so the foreign ministry should coordinate closely with allies and the international community regarding that. the chinese say they've noted what they call positive signals from both sides of the border or.
6:08 am
china welcomes it supports north and south korea taking earnest efforts to treat this is an opportunity to improve mutual relations promote the alleviation of the situation on the korean peninsula and realize denuclearization on the peninsula. while offering to send a team of athletes to the olympics came also said the nuclear button is always on the desk of my office a north korean nuclear bomb test last year as well as the firing of more than twenty missiles continue to defy the world u.s. president donald trump wants to toughen sanctions further as pyongyang continues to develop nuclear missiles it says it will be capable of hitting the continental united states if negotiators do meet next week ahead of the winter olympics they'll be the first formal talks in two years bernard smith al-jazeera well the u.s. state department says it's skeptical about kim jong un's necessity for talks with
6:09 am
the south korea. you know if if the two countries decide that they want to have talks that would be certainly their choice we have a very strong relationship with the republic of korea as we do with japan we have had a strong alliance with them for many many decades that hasn't changed kim jong un may be trying to drive a wedge of some sort between the two nations between our nation and the republic of korea i can assure you that that will not happen that will not occur we are very skeptical of kim jong un's sincerity in sitting down and having talks our policy hasn't changed the south koreans policy has not changed that we both support a denuclearized korean peninsula well robert kennedy is a professor of political science at pusan national university he says north korea may try to use the talks to win relief from u.n. sanctions. i think the north koreans are probably thinking that the talks are permanently a way to drive a wedge between the u.s. and south korea just as the american spokesman said but the top koreans have
6:10 am
a very full agenda the south grow into like family or unions that's a very emotional issue in south korea the south koreans are really concerned about nuclear security right where the north koreans going to do with their nuclear weapons how many they have what kind of maintenance and safety protocols they have there's concern about of chernobyl incident on the peninsula so the south koreans have a full agenda my guess is the north koreans going to play that and say you know if you want to talk about all these things you want some kind of concessions we want aid we want cash and so on i would imagine the north koreans would treat this as a way to get some kind of concession south korean president is a liberal who is a part of the what they call the sunshine policy under the previous labor governments about a decade ago the sunshine policy was a gauge and policy would reach out to north korea and bring them into the international community and things like that and moon jane was an important architect of that he really really wants talks and he really does he really believes that talking to north korea and pulling them in is the way to actually get movement on these issues and the americans are really going the other way especially under donald trump right we've seen much more belligerent hawkish rhetoric from trump than any other president and so you've got the potential for a really really wide divergence between the united states and south korea i'm
6:11 am
actually really impressed in two thousand and seventeen how the two sides managed to paper over those differences but i mean this wedge this wedge issue you know a wedge just sort of divide between the two i mean this has been waiting for the north koreans for a while i'm surprised it actually took them this long to fit try to figure out a way to drive them apart the u.s. says it intends to withhold more than two hundred fifty million dollars of aid to pakistan and the decision comes up to president trump again as the country of being a safe haven for terrorists in jordan has more from washington d.c. . the u.s. president doll tromped used his first tweet of two thousand and eighteen to attack the pakistani government trying to accuse the pakistanis of not doing enough to crack down on groups such as the hunt khan the network or the talabani say these groups are the stabilizing not just pockets but also afghanistan to the west on tuesday the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley made it plain that the u.s.
6:12 am

fire that's part of the rebel doctor series this time on. welcome back a quick reminder of the top stories here on al-jazeera the u.s. has called for an emergency session of the u.n. security council to discuss the anti-government protests in iraq the supreme leader of iran has blamed his country's enemies for six days of violence which has now claimed the lives of twenty one protesters and one police. yes president donald trump has warned north korea that he too has a nuclear button on his desk that it's bigger and more powerful in response to kim jong un's new year's day statement in which he spoke of the launch button on his
6:17 am
desk for weapons capable of reaching the u.s. . and u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nicky hayden says washington will withhold more than two hundred fifty million dollars of aid to pakistan the decision comes up at the u.s. president again accuse the country being a safe haven for terrorists. now u.s. president donald trump has threatened to cut aid to the palestinian authority claiming it is no longer willing to talk peace following his recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital a new israeli in or makes it harder to handle parts of jerusalem to the palestinians. reports from occupied east jerusalem. it was to say the least a controversial vote members of the knesset israel's parliament setting a higher threshold for any future attempt to give up any parts of jerusalem instead of a simple majority of sixty one votes now a supermajority of eighty votes or two thirds of the one hundred twenty seat knesset will be needed to approve any legislation ceding parts of jerusalem to any
6:18 am
foreign parties it places a major hurdle in the path of jerusalem being part of any future peace talks palestinian leaders while frustrated are not surprised saying similar laws are being pursued in an israeli effort to consolidate its occupation look a film that some promise and it screams that we are moving directly in our bus and all in the path of no they change its own. this is very clear there is however considerable confusion about what happens next one of the key questions for palestinians now is what impact this legislation will have on areas like of iraq up where we are now and the shop at refugee camp it was originally expected that as part of the bill the knesset would also vote to allow for the changing of jerusalem's municipal borders meaning that neighborhoods such as and struck out refugee camps both located behind the security wall would no longer be part of
6:19 am
jerusalem municipality which could among other things potentially strip approximately one hundred fifty thousand palestinians of their residency status that provision however was withdrawn at the last minute the head of the covert act of residence committee says even if the law were to pass his group would make sure it won't go into effect immediately i don't think that will happen before five or six years because we going to go to court at cannes that we as a committee over here by the name of a lot of people we are going to go to the core and to helping us and this will of the committees of the human rights when they were can is there and some of them put a note of some of them is that i but they will help both to go to court to stand in the court again that while the exact date isn't known it's expected the knesset will attempt to debate the issue of jerusalem as municipal borders in the near future adding another note of uncertainty during a time already full of concern how many. who would act up in occupied east
6:20 am
jerusalem. well the leader of israel's opposition has criticized the new law. what the bill has it has a political ramification on behalf of the political bodies and elements in the israeli political scene who say we should make sure that nobody negotiates anything to do with jerusalem so that's a political question for the future it has no bearing on anybody's daily life in jerusalem now does it have any effect on the israelis per se i can tell you that it was only a kind of a very tiny minute item on the israeli national agenda today although it's made the headlines and that's part of our criticism about it because it's a useless law with no real impact on anybody. you know israel has given africans who enter the country illegally three months to leave or face imprisonment the migrants from sudan and eritrea been told to return home or move to another country
6:21 am
those who lead by the end of march will be given tickets and three enough thousand dollars rights groups though have condemned the decision saying it puts lives in danger of months blumenthal who's a senior writer for dot org says it will be difficult to stop the deportations going ahead. human rights groups in israel within israeli society are on under unprecedented assault from a right wing israeli government and you know african and non jewish asylum seekers have faced open race riots in tel aviv that were actually stirred by the culture minister a member of benjamin netanyahu is ruling we could party who referred this rally to africans as a cancer in israel's body they face street harassment and violence and it's a very unpleasant situation for those who are actually allowed to be on the street and those who advocate on behalf of them from within jewish israeli society also its incitement and are very marginal so it's unclear to me how any group from
6:22 am
within israeli society can create the necessary pressure to stop this potentially calamitous mass deportation of over thirty thousand people fleeing a horrendous human rights situation well businesses in the gaza strip have long been struggling under an israeli blockade many a barely able to keep their operations afloat with some forced to close do some lack of supplies and other difficulties well now a new cartoon by an israeli rights group tells a reality facing one business malcolm web reports from gaza. a girl could know by then ice cream and wins a ticket to visit to speak factory. hey you have heard them in the sun i love the sun has now moved on how do we yet as new the fictional character in the. animation made by an israeli rights group but the factory and its owner mohammed tell bonnie a real and so are the many problems operating under the blockade of gaza by israel

6:25 am
fact that there is a different reality inside of the gaza strip the one they normally hear business is also been hurt by israeli restrictions on exports mohammed says trade won't pick up in less the siege and at the end of the film makes everything right with her imagination in reality things so simple and causes industries are still crippled malcolm webb al-jazeera in the gaza strip nigeria's military says more than seven hundred people held hostage by the armed group boko haram that managed to escape they were found among gooner that's close to the northeastern border with chad the army says many of the captives were being kept in forced labor camps. as the latest from the brutal. the more than seven hundred hostages fled their captors after what the nigerian army called ground on elephants of over the last few weeks in northeastern nigeria now these areas there fled from chile islands in the lake chad
