or their loved ones are alive or dead or miami really is a place where two worlds meet we can get to washington d.c. two hours we can get so on joyce and the rest of central bankers about the same time but more importantly why those two cultures north and south america beats us to teach it's a very important place for all to see what's a big. news we need strong north african partners strong and the countries like egypt want others. could egypt provide the key to europe's migrant crisis e.u. leaders consider a new partnership as they meet in austria. hello again i'm a dancer with that is their life and also coming out on top of the world leaders of both koreas make history at their three day summit the can they make peace.
5:01 pm
celebrations in uganda as a pop star turned politician bobby wine returns home from the united states. and the u.s. state department says the blockade on by neighboring countries has hindered the fight against terrorism. the european leaders are calling for more talks with egypt and other north african countries to hold migration to the continent host and right wing austrian chancellor sebastian cook has praised the egyptian leader for stopping people from making the journey he visited cairo on sunday to discuss deeper cooperation the e.u. has previously struck deals with turkey and libya helping cut migration to europe from its twenty fifteen peak. the migration debate showed that we may not agree
5:02 pm
on everything but we agree on the main goal. which is illegal migration do you. mean strengthening our external borders. strengthening cooperation with countries. such corporations should not be just the migration of fighting smugglers and traffickers it should be about a much broader vision of partnership. together with chantel we have started a dialogue with the egyptian president and now we can see the backing from the european council for this and similar dialogues ok we can go live now to see our correspondent who's covering the summit for us in salzburg in austria and it sounds very much as though. does have broad consensus as they describe on this particularly thorny issue that is so divided all twenty eight of them.
5:03 pm
well yeah and you see the problem they've had over the course of the last year or two is this plan that primarily the germans had because they took in a million famously with a million refugees in twenty fifteen and then said well how about everybody else to do you want to take some in as well in the cause of major then gary and said no we're not saying anybody and stuck a fence up in other countries then followed and organizing a quota system where everybody shares it out proved impossible and led to enormous rouse inside the block but if you then say to these countries well ok if you don't as a refugees how about paying someone else to do it instead then they'll say well yeah that's absolutely fine the problem is they have i'm able to find a partner country a third country as they call it if they can rely on because the obvious one would be libya since that's one of the transit points and it's chaos there it leaks and that's where some of the boats have come from the way that this is now trying to be framed by the austrians in particular who have come up this idea of working with egypt is that partly it's
5:04 pm
a way of stopping people drowning in the sea because they say the egyptians have proved particularly good at stopping that from happening but they are also entirely clear that they don't want much migration at all and they said they don't want any illegal migration so the question then arises well if it is egypt because think egypt can do that then everybody like like me wants to say well ok how's it going to work then people are in refugee camps in egypt and does it egypt organize their asylum applications that people are rescued in the sea then get to egypt's and. kurt's base basically said well we don't know yet but we're working on it you can use we need strong north african partners strong and official countries like egypt want others to emulate this we will support them when it comes to the country's coastguards so that. the rescue can take place as efficiently as rapidly as possible in their coastal waters and ideally as in the case of egypt
5:05 pm
boats would not launch in the first place that's the objectives we are pursuing. it's an objective we have come much closer to know than we were a year ago three years ago. being condemned as being radical and right wing now more and more people are supporting we are working in this direction but i look forward to every step. ok so there are still many questions to be also with regard to this potential deal isn't there lawrence but the other main issue at this what was billed as an informal summit taking place in austria was of course bracks it had to resume a turned up there she was given a little window wasn't she to to sell her case what happened. well i think i think if she thought there was she's going to a better time speaking face to face with the leaders than with michelle body a the negotiator she's she's i mean she's talking at the moment the press conference but that the language that donald tusk used in that closing press
5:06 pm
congress is even harder towards britain than it had been before there's some attorney saying we want to make it work but the got no time for what they call the checkers deal the deal which is a little bit in but mostly outs. and very significantly i thought they said we're going to decide in the european union in october what our position is and only then will we decide if there's any point in having a different summit in the event which had been flagged by the british side as already being the point in time when when the whole thing was going to be signed off for so for the e.u. to them to say we're not even clear whether any point in having a summit shows how much pressure the now trying to put on the british sides to an extraordinary amount by emmanuel mucker on the french president who basically said the whole breakfast deal was organized by lawyers who left as soon as. the vote was done so countries like france and germany are absolutely dead set against this and reason has got a impossible job because the e.u.
5:07 pm
had said deal half a conservative party a home makes a deal and the british public hates the deal as well and so what is she got she got between now and the middle of october to find something else lawrence lee live in salzburg in a shed thank you a syrian migrants and sentenced to five years in jail for his involvement in protests at the hungry serbia border hunger an appeals court reduced are made hammad sentence from seven years after he was convicted of entering the country illegally and throwing rocks at police in twenty fifteen the court found he was one of the people involved in protests at the border during the height of the europe migrant crisis in twenty fifteen amnesty international says the case demonstrates hungary's demonization of refugees and migrants. now in a symbolic end to their three day summit the leaders of north and south korea have visited the top of the peninsula of my sacred mountain it's called mt patting him and moon j. and took a tour around this i count volcanic crater called heaven lake and it rounds out
5:08 pm
a trip that's how the two leaders agreed to making their pain until a nuclear free as rough mcbride reports from the south korean capital seoul. this summit ended as it began rich in symbolism president moon j end of south korea and his north korean host kim jong un top of mt peck to the highest peak of the korean peninsula spiritually significant to all koreans into korean relations have seen many false starts with attempts at reconciliation often returning to threats of war but there's a strong sense moon and kim want to forge a bond so strong that they can never slip back to the acrimony of the past. two inches of the oh we adopted a military pact to end a history of brutal and tragic confrontation and hostility. some weapons facilities will be closed but there's little detail on how to fulfill them or they promise to
5:09 pm
make the peninsula you clear three it's enough though to breathe new life back into the stalled negotiations between north korea and the united states and could lead to a second summit between kim and u.s. president donald trump but many believe to make real progress it's now time for the photo ops to give way to detailed discussion i mean it's going to be really really difficult and the president and kim jong un don't know these things any kind of detail which is why we keep getting these some of declarations that are very short because the detail has to be worked out by the experts. more skeptical observers suspect north korea now with south korean support may have other reasons for pushing for a summit and this is a significant diplomatic success for most kerry because in a few months the trio disband to make preparations was a summit and during the summit itself we are not going to see any confrontation and
5:10 pm
this is exceptionally mosque technics their major goal is to wait donald trump out as soon as moon returned to seoul he broadcast live to south korea. he revealed that kim has offered a number of unspecified steps towards denuclearization but would be expecting concessions from the u.s. in return. the detail measures or the appropriate measures are things that must be agreed upon between north korea and the u.s. . it underlines moon's vital role now as go between the north koreas negotiations with the u.s. as he prepares for a meeting next week with trump whatever the outcome this summit with kim has revealed to leaders building a home grown man and then turn for a change that may be difficult to stop robert bride al-jazeera so. the ugandan opposition politician bobby weiner has returned to his home near camp pilar from

america's view of iran's role in the region. iran has been mentioned in the report around five four four times and the context was a repetition of what of what's been mentioned two thousand and sixteen reports are basically linking iran with the sponsoring terrorism in the context where the linkage between iran has been around him and was happening in syria some of the militias approached by iran. and i think that is that is reconfirming the perception of iran in the united states we cannot you know ignore the fact that the united states since the withdraw of the nuclear deal there is a sort of very clear policy of. bringing iran back to the square where it is you know a rogue state where the state is not actually supporting terrorism and sort of demonization of iran and this is absolutely confirming what the united states tried to do in the
5:18 pm
since june two thousand and seventeen the united states actually signed very clear you know human to. counter terrorism the report is actually confirming that steps and and the measurements taken by the government. it shows that how much you know that iran is cooperating with the united states and delivering on their notes on the promises there is very clear message not only to the country to the world that is actually a serious fight against terrorism in the region i think that is something for a country need to take it seriously. shere muslims around the world are marking a shura the annual mourning for the prophet mohammed's grandson imaam hussein was killed in the battle of karbala and what is now a rock thirteen hundred years ago hussein's death was a major factor in the split into the two main sects of islam sunni and shia the
