is to make the wearing off masks meant a tory measure now being implemented in a number of other states including california it's a mandate in the state of california because it not only protects you it protects others and it sends a message to people that we are not out of this pandemic president trump continues to appear in public without a mask as do most of his supporters and there's an emerging political aspect to the spread of the virus based on population republican controlled states are recording new cases at twice the rate of those governed by democrats once the epicenter of the pandemic new york state along with its neighbors new jersey and connecticut is clamping down on movement from affected states so we are announcing today a joint travel advisory people coming in from states that have

headquarters in new york. with the clock ticking towards the july deadline for an extension of the u.n. secretary general made his position to the security council extremely clear if implemented and accession constituted of serious violation of international law grievously harmed the prospect of a 2 state solution and the count the possibilities of a new will of negotiations i call on the israeli government. it's an exception class palestinian foreign minister maliki says the israel of benjamin netanyahu doesn't believe it's bound by international norms or laws israel thinks as has been its experience so far that it will not be fined or oppressed and it's believed that security council resolutions are binding for other international course have jurisdiction over others sanctions are
full others israel's ambassador danny de known went back in history to justify an exception. everything more that led the people of israel out of egypt. into the land of israel we don't live in the land yeah that one of. the jews here believe and exit the road sovereignty in their land but the vast majority 14 out of 15 members of the security council are following more recent history the councils own resolutions when israel took east jerusalem the west bank and gaza in the 1967 war the security council declared in numerous subsequent resolutions that these were occupied territories since then large parts of this palestinian land has been taken over by israeli settlers but this is the 1st time in 52 years that israel has
come close to declaring sovereignty and taking permanent political control it it's never been our internet to impose a solution the only country that could stop it is close ally the us ambassador kelly craft said little on the issue of annexation but speaking at the same time as her in washington d.c. her boss the u.s. secretary of state was clearer this isn't about it's really extend its sovereignty the question is are these you really just make some might see that as a green light for israel certainly israel is now in the driving seat it's not clear if it will actually carry out an exception and if it does when it will take place and how much of the west bank will be annexed james al-jazeera of the united nations now in a moment we'll hear from nida abraham in the jordan valley has been speaking to one of the palestinian prime ministers advisors but 1st the area for set in west
jerusalem explains how the initial stages of the annexation could actually look. a lot of the scrutiny here will be on exactly what is happening in the united states among senior u.s. officials in washington d.c. they are meeting this week to discuss exactly how much and what will be greenlighted if it's all in terms of the annexation the signals certainly have been pretty positive but there was talk from the u.s. ambassador kelly craft during this meeting she said that it took courageous israeli leadership to make of the hard choices required so does that mean that they will require something of benjamin netanyahu in terms of acknowledging publicly that this is part of a trump plan which also as part of it contains a palestinian state something that might be harder for him to sell to his right wing supporters here in israel and also talking about holding the palestinian leadership accountable is that another attempt to try and get the palestinians to
hold talks and potentially stave off an accession talks based on the trump plan which they have utterly rejected because of the annexation it also includes in the huge loss of territory within the occupied west bank that would result i think it's very late in the day to try and make those sorts of appeals over there are reports that they have been made through various channels to the palestinian leadership what is much more likely seems to be a coalescing of opinion around a limited potentially to start with at least a phased annexation. 3 text. that to me was a bit like their. prime minister. you . actually missed the pentagon on mentioned a few international resolutions. by the. united nations that mentioning that the israeli state should. start there but he didn't mention 100 of
those if you just want the united nations about that in fact that you feel about establishing a palestinian state also. we didn't reject any opportunity we were able. to start negotiations at any moment if this is according to the international law and united dissenters illusions i'll do that a good deed and signed agreements between us on the israelis signed. into law a security economy bellatrix and as a leech agreement it's it should be for all what they have decided i was able to look at least $94.00 of the refugees including 30 children have been rescued in indonesia waters they were found by a fisherman on monday off the boat capsized off the coast of a province the refugees have been stuck on the boat since then malaysia and indonesia favor destinations for a thing violence in myanmar and poverty and refugee camps in bangladesh. and that's
more now from jakarta. there's still a lot that's yet to be established about this case including what will ultimately happen to them there are at least $94.00 people who were on board that vessel but of course local sources on the ground tell us that the number could in fact be much larger at least perhaps more than $100.00 we have heard from local authorities on the ground a local military tunnel told al-jazeera that there is no intention to allow the raid to enter into an asian waters and then later enter into an asia let's hear what he had to say a few moments ago. the photos that we have given them not just sticks and now we have to police watching them taking turns with national search and rescue team and also with the military we are planning to fix the boat we will give them more logistics then we will push them away from indonesia territory guarded by the navy and historically indonesia never signed the 959 convention on refugees but this
country does have a history all accepting refugees and all the refugees so human rights organizations are appealing to the central government to intervene to say something to allow these refugees to stay in indonesia of course part of the reason for that strong demand is that a number of these refugees which children we believe at least 13 were children and all sources tell us that a number of them appeared to be around the age of 3 or 4 so we will continue to monitor the situation and hope to hear from the central government soon. time for a short break here and when we come back. i'm john hendren in louisville kentucky where police gunned down brianna taylor in her own bed we'll have our conversation with her mother coming up. scientists are working to verify the hottest temperatures ever recorded and one of the coldest places on earth stay with us.
