on this u.s. president and the possibility of american intervention in the region conservative activists traditionally hawkish and pro-u.s. find themselves in the same camp as liberal outlets that favor diplomatic engagement and are often skeptical of u.s. involvement in mid april chosen enable published a newspaper headline articulating fears of trump quote going on north korea the increased tension since the term presidency have also pushed political discourse in south korea to the right with conservative media outlets opening a debate that was considered closed a long time ago the possibility of a nuclear ised south korea there's a lot of anxiety from the way the government which when you talk about weapons really scares a lot and who didn't serve as a conservator so many points for the president because they're more hawkish on north korea so overthrow your literate i don't know when you know it's been you know. it doesn't go to work in a regular training where trump is just so unpredictable me so erratic and some of
1:01 pm
the things he said about so and so sharp want to program right and that anything it's that you're going south korean president. sometimes. there is a crucial component to the story historically and in the one nine hundred fifty s. the u.s. played a lead role in intervening against a north korean invasion of the south. that war never actually ended there's been an armistice in place since one nine hundred fifty three some episodes of the us his role in the north south conflict through the cold war and since have been forgotten or lost in sensationalist coverage they want by wire or negotiations with the people that have never kept an agreement in their life and that also contributes to the matter to that north korea is soley responsible for the escalating tensions and that each crisis is a new one i do think there's a kind of historical myopia on media reporting on north korea the historical
1:02 pm
context is very important on north korea and partly that's because the north korean government and military remember the history of the korean war by contrast in america of course the korean war you know forgotten they came very quickly after the second world war when it was just a lot of war fatigue and so people weren't interested in it at the time and there's not been that much study of it since them either. months of news coverage of the verbal to and fro between washington and pyongyang have done little to clarify or improve what we know of the so-called hermit kingdom. north korea remains closed to most of the world and much of the u.s. media continue to push incomplete sometimes can be captured representations of the country and for the two leaders caught in a war of words there has been little effort to tone down the tension or the rhetoric. and finally to call the white house communications office a shakespearean tragedy would be at the very least premature but there is
1:03 pm
a line from macbeth the does seem to fit some of the dearly departed individuals names like spicer's gorka and bandit paraphrasing now nothing in his life became him quite like leaving before quitting his job press secretary sean spicer was criticized for constantly lying to the american people now that he's out spicer gets to do comic cameos at the american t.v. industry's annual love fest the emmy awards spicer did get some laughs at the event but plenty of hackles from the cheap seats on social media we'll see you next time here at the listening post made is there anyone who can say how big the audience is sean do you know. it was. i. was you with me period.
1:04 pm
the world's primary could change producing nation. is at the forefront of the war on drugs we're talking about serious organized crime as a country where reaching
1:05 pm
a critical point while some have made fortunes many others have suffered at the hands of this multi-billion dollar industry both of whom of this business will go on forever it will not change our lives global policies do who are the winners and losers of this illicit trade snow of the andes at this time. without knowledge would please be margaret. this reactor of damage. could this be operational cost. or this over the option. of jersey guarded by contrast. we understand the differences. and the similarities of cultures across the world
1:06 pm
so no matter how you take it al-jazeera will bring you the news and current affairs that matter to you al-jazeera i just want to make sure all of our audience is on the same page whether online and more to produce to us citizens here than what puts people of iraq by one and the same or if you join us on saturday i was never put a file been looked at differently because i'm dacogen all the people that i'm a watch this is a dialogue tweet us with hostile a.j. stream and one of their pitches might make the not show join the global conversation at this time on al-jazeera.
1:07 pm
where every. iran says it has successfully tested a new bill istic missile that can carry multiple warheads. or shall carry this is al jazeera but of doha also coming up china limits fuel exports to north korea increasing the pressure on later can follow. human rights group says fires are still burning in the hands of villages in myanmar's for kind states. and counting is underway and is a once a vote for the liberal opposition leaders in a close race with the conservative prime minister.
1:08 pm
state media and iran have released footage of what they say is a successful test launch of a new but will stick missile across our was launched just a few hours after it was unveiled at a military parade in tehran apollo's threats by u.s. president donald trump that washington may withdraw from the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal president also rouhani says tehran will not seek permission from any country to strengthen its defense capabilities in casella has more. on what these are iran's latest ballistic missile with a range of two thousand kilometers they can reach much of the middle east including israel during his speech president hassan rouhani defended his country's right to protect itself. no matter if you like it or not we will boost our
1:09 pm
defense and military power to the extent deemed necessary for deterrence we will not seek permission from anyone to defend our country and our land. that's likely to cause more anger at the white house president donald trump called iraq a rogue nation during his address at the u.n. this week and has threatened to withdraw from the two thousand and fifteen nuclear agreement frankly that deal is an embarrassment to the united states and i don't think you've heard the last of it believe me it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that iran's government and its pursuit of death and destruction. a group of six world powers namely china france russia the united kingdom the u.s. and germany are part of the deal which included the lifting of sanctions for iran scurrying up its nuclear program about analysts say the trump administration isn't
1:10 pm
likely to back down on the agreement president i think there are two aspects that are problematic about this deal first is his overall perspective towards the muslim world which i would characterize as wide deep intactness and the second is basic business this deal doesn't make sense from an american business perspective it doesn't benefit the united states economically the core of arc and of the iran nuclear deal is that the broad made a series of concessions on its nuclear program in exchange for the united states essentially lifting sanctions on other countries. the international powers that brokered the deal are pressing the white house stick by it their grammont prevent iran from its nuclear activities for ten to fifteen years it also allows staff run to maintain some of its nuclear stockpiles for research and medical purposes although it's not clear what happens after that or if the united states withdraws
1:11 pm
from there freeman seen on the soul of al-jazeera by symbol ravishes a visiting research fellow at lunch university's center for middle eastern studies says iran believes the latest missile launch does not violate any international agreements. they are not a violation of. joint a comprehensive plan of action or year to year on date and then you create the torch a c.p.o. way and they are not a violation of un resolution two two three one in the sense that iran interprets it because like. resolution that you have. like iran has pledged not to. carry out ballistic me sided ok designed to carry warheads and like it did the argument on the ring side is that.
1:12 pm
these. iran basically because it's not seeking nuclear weapons and doesn't have or . basically you by default these me sizes are not designed to carry or it's so that's. basically you're in a side of story us. two are pretty as a violation of un resolution china has moved to limit oil exports and north korea in line with the latest round of un sanctions shipments of refined petroleum condensates and liquefied natural gas will be affected china will also ban textile and ports that's one of our three as last main sources of foreign revenue so this all falls an announcement by president ronald trump that beijing had ordered its banks to stop dealing with pyongyang but the chinese government has denied that our career responded on thursday with more threat saying it could conduct a hydrogen bomb test and the pacific ocean so as all of this continues to develop
1:13 pm
atrium brown follows it all for us from beijing so china limiting oil exports can you put that in some context for us adrian. yes china has said that it's going to cap the amount of oil that it sends pumps across the border to north korea it's going to cap those exports a two hundred million barrels a year what we don't know rachelle because there's no data on this is how much oil china sends to north korea i've seen one figure that suggests it could be as much as six million barrels a year but if it's going to cap those exports a two million barrels a year and that of course could have some impact but to be honest we're not going to know for months what the effect of these sanctions are going to be on north korea now a century what china has now done it's basically announced that it's begun implementing what it agreed to at the united nations security council on saturday
1:14 pm
a statement appeared on the website of china's commerce ministry saying that as of now saturday china was no longer importing textiles from north korea as you pointed out rightly textiles have been a very important source of hard currency for the regime also as of now china is no longer exploiting things like liquefied natural gas but it's the i think the fact that it's no longer going to be exporting oil in quite the quantities that it did that it's really the the sort of headline item me and of course no longer importing textiles from from north korea is going to hurt revenue as well now last month china agreed to other wide ranging sanctions against north korea it said they would no longer import things like coal iron ore and seafood so yes the onus is on china once more and of course as we've said many times before ninety percent of the north's trade is with china. so adrian president trump has said that
1:15 pm
china has cut off banking with north korea. it's seems that perhaps something he's not quite telling the truth on can you kind of clarify it for us yeah sure i mean on thursday president donald trump in another gesture of sort of provocative flattery to president xi jinping praised president xi jinping for saying that he told china's banks to basically no longer do business with north korea then on friday night china's official foreign ministry spokesman said actually that's not quite the case so he raised a serious question mark as to whether china really was now targeting north korea's financial system but once more on friday president trump insisted the president xi jinping was going along with his strategy on banks this is what he had to say. i
1:16 pm
made a friend in china president xi and yesterday he basically took the banking industry away from north korea never been done it was never been the big space the relationship relationship is very good but we're dealing with somebody that will figure out he may be smart he may be strategic and he may be totally crazy but you know what no matter what he is we're going to handle it folks believe me. i think that what we're seeing at the moment is clear evidence of the different strategies that the united states and china have when it comes to north korea president donald trump likes to shout very loudly about what he's doing against north korea china prefers a more quiet you know low key approach to dealing with a country that after all is
1:17 pm
a former ally and a former friend so yes i think it's possible that china is going along with what president trump is talking about but it just doesn't want to go particularly public about it and certainly not tweet about it that's for sure major brown live from beijing thank you. and most international says villages are still being burned in me and mark contradicting the government's statements that military operations have. the group says new satellite images and video shows smoke rising from her hand to villages around four hundred thirty thousand refugees have fled since the latest outbreak of violence began less than a month ago but he tells her. that borders told al jazeera that otherwise healthy adults in camps are on the brink of death because of dehydration so the hall has more from the me and mar bangladesh border. with no rare day without
