the. us president donald trump calls for un reforms as he attends his fast general assembly and criticizes the global body for not living up to its potential. however i'm heading home and this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up the united states asks me and maher to end its military operation in rakhine state which is pushed hundreds of thousands of our heads of muslims from their homes. caribbean islands prepare for yet another hurricane as cats or a former. the state is in iraq to hold an independence referendum despite a supreme court order suspending the vote. u.s.
4:31 am
president has made his debut at the united nations and over his asian he's slated in the past and he says the world body is not living up to its potential because a bureaucracy and mismanagement but this time he promised that the u.s. would help reform the united nations to make it stronger and more effective. reports now from new york. diplomats were wary about this trump's first trip to the united nations as president. trump has railed against the u.n. many times in the past suggesting it's inefficient and bloated at times this transactional america first president it seemed to question the entire international system this existence since the un was set up at the end of world war two ahead of the meeting
4:32 am
there was some unease about what this unpredictable president might say but he seemed concerned about how the microphones worked as written with its own results. when trump finally spoke there would have been a big sigh of relief felt across the united nations he now seems to be a friend of the organization. mr secretary general of the united states and the member states president to support. this great reform vision we pledge to be partners in your work and i am confident that if we work together and champion truly bold reforms the united nations will emerge as a stronger more effective more just and greater force for peace and harmony in the world so instead of declaring war on the u.n. trump seems already to be declaring a victory this turnabout it seems the result of an unlikely partnership between the
4:33 am
us ambassador nikki haley and the u.n. secretary general who like the president took up his post in january and tonio good terrorists is a canny political operator who knows how all this needs to be presented someone recently asked what keeps me up at night and my answer was simple bureaucracy fragmented structures byzantine procedures and endless red tape at the beginning of the year in washington d.c. i spoke with a senior white house official who said it was the administration's intent to gut the united nations that hasn't happened so for now the u.n. may feel it's dodged the bullet but this is an issue that will be revisited and it's possible down the line that president trump may feel that the changes that have been made are not bold enough the president will be staying in new york for most of the week he gives his longer formal address to the u.n. on choose day as well as holding meetings with other world leaders with north korea
4:34 am
high on the agenda james spays al-jazeera of the united nations the us president donald trump did meet with latin american leaders on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly and he was critical of the venezuelan government for its crackdown on opposition protesters. our economic vans form a critical foundation for advancing peace and prosperity for all of our people and all of our neighbors i ask every country represented here to be prepared to do more to address this unbelievably serious crisis we call for the full restoration of democracy and political freedoms in venezuela and we wanted to happen very very soon. mike hanna joins us live now from u.n. headquarters so mike there's have some pretty strong words from president on venezuela how is it received there indeed yes very strong words indeed
4:35 am
he's meeting with other latin american leaders the dinner continuing as we are talking the leaders of brazil colombia panama and peru conspicuous by its absence of course nicolas maduro the president of venezuela who has not come to the united nations at all he's being represented by the country's foreign minister now the issue of venezuela has been high on the u.s. foreign policy determinant and in recent days the trumpet ministration has labeled nicolas maduro as a dictator it said that the national assembly that he wants to rewrite the constitution is an illegitimate body so those strong words we're hearing from donald trump has had precedent from the trumpet ministration in recent days and weeks significant though that they coming at a meeting with other leaders of latin america showing that they are equally concerned about what is happening in venezuela and like there was also and meeting
4:36 am
on me in mar held by many foreign dignitaries which was hosted by the u.k. what came out of that. well that was a very interesting meeting indeed hosted by the u.k. foreign secretary long with the u.s. ambassador to the united nations now they have hosted a meeting involving senior members of my arm of burma as government the president of burma ma'am are not here at all and seen the however an ultimatum virtually was issued to the leaders of myanmar they were told in no terms by the u.k. and the u.s. that the issue of refugees must be addressed that provision must be made for the influx of humanitarian assistance to the ringers who are fleeing the i am our military and to demand that by and more military stop its actions so what is seen here is a different shift in the position of the u.s. and the u.k. with regards to what is happening in my m.r.
4:37 am
from dealing with that as a humanitarian crisis that's now being seen as a crisis that is resulting hello again look at weather conditions across the americas this time hurrican jose which is running very close to new england over the next few days and weather makes landfall or not still a very slight possibility all along the coast is going to be very rough for going to see a lot of surf and some dangerous rip currents of it all possible stay clear so there is the threat from jose there is that frontal system towards the some mid atlantic region there's not that area of low pressure across the north western areas with some snow really into the rockies so calgary really taste of autumn there twelve degrees snow further towards the north and then as we had a on through into wednesday dry conditions for many parts of the eastern seaboard but maybe a threat of some cloud from that system for new york so we head down into the caribbean the main concern is going to be development of hurrican maria which is likely to be a category three system as it hits dominica and indeed the northern part of the
