the us voted against nevertheless this week at least two leaders still regard it as a victory third this is the first time that we meet after the american embassy has been moved to jerusalem. changes to it and you've touched her. but the palestinian leader argues that the u.s. decision just ignores rather than changes history we have concluded agreements with the us administration and the us administration has broken all these agreements it takes two to tango so an agreement should be respected by all the parties among the other un resolutions ignored by the trumpet ministration those concerning the illegality of settlements borders says defined by the one nine hundred sixty seven lines of disengagement and in recent weeks even the questioning of the right to repeat g.'s to return the state the dismay of longtime u.s. allies i don't believe it's possible unilaterally to take a subject like that off the table and it must be part of the the final discussions
12:01 pm
this week though apparent clarity on what for decades has been a u.n. position in iraq a very staged illusion yeah i think that's what i think that's what i think works best i don't even have to speak to anybody that's my feeling now you may have a different feeling i don't think so but i think two state solution works yes it's the one point on which all parties in the general assembly would agree with my kind of al-jazeera united nations. now china has accused u.s. president donald trump of slammed to he said beijing was trying to meddle in the upcoming u.s. midterm elections trump told the u.n. security council this week that china was interfering because of his tough stance on trade patty culhane a poll and we found that giant it was a new and surprising allegation from the u.s. president it didn't go over well in beijing would usually if you don't we advise

12:03 pm
china has a culture that goes back they can name their own of their emperors going back for five thousand years so they do not think that a president of the united states would say things that are careless worth less so they're going to find a deeper meaning in this then you and i are used to with just kind of donald trump's rant of the moment. the president is clearly upset with these ads that china placed in an important newspaper in iowa saying trump was the reason farmers were losing money he recently tweeted china is actually placing propaganda ads in the des moines register and other papers made to look like news that's because we are beating them on trade open markets and the farmers will make a fortune when this is over. the right now u.s. farmers are losing big and growing impatient this trade war is hitting the heart of his base and the president is clearly aware and frustrated that could have a big impact on the upcoming election patty klein al-jazeera washington. still

12:08 pm
environments have remained constant. at the top marine food chain accumulate the chemicals ingested by the animals they are among the mammals with the highest levels of p.c.b. in there to shoot the high talks at levels are believed to alter or behavior damage their immune systems and cause why tool to offspring well let's get more on this now we're joined by peter ross the director and a senior scientist with the ocean pollution research program at the vancouver aquarium and the author of the study and he's joining us via skype from toronto very good to have you with us on al-jazeera so it's being described as an apocalypse with alarming figures in the report just how much danger are killer whales really end now. well that's a great question of course it's very very difficult to do good cause effect studies with wild whales these are complex animals that are exposed to many different
12:09 pm
pollutants many different threats are very difficult but we need that said we know the b.c.b.s. are a problem we know the p.c.b. accumulate at the top of the food chain and whales in different parts of the world and to be much more to many other species because they're right at the top of the food chain and they live a long time we also know the b.c.b.s. armature is sleep persistent in fact in the global environment even though we see it on it's to regulations in different parts but world over years or decades trees for b.c.b.s. to disappear degrade chemically so these are very persistent. high risk at the very top of the food chain hands very similar to concerns about killer whales as the canary of our planet's oceans mr ross what can be done about this
12:10 pm
because the seabees have already been banned but i guess because of the system they have remained in the system countries the carrying out clean up is that likely to make a difference i mean what do countries need to do to save as. well as if there are a number of things that this study speaks to number one p.c. bees are not alone and there are many many other classes of chemicals that are problematic in the environment and i think this singular disaster if you will is the question something that shouldn't risk assessment chemical regulations and practices policy. the chemical design on the part of the class should not be treated legislation this should be used to inform what's happening around the world in terms of our very. chemical selection for different reasons. though is
12:11 pm
a bad news story and we're very concerned that the. related p.c.'s will remain a problem or a legacy for many decades to come i should point out that our own research has indicated that these can be levels have dropped between two or for over fifty years and that's a direct result of source control and regulation so there are there is a bit of good news in there the problem though is that even though there's been some improvement things have stabilized and p.c.b. levels are not responding to further control so more is needed to clean up on. contaminated sites where the seabees were heavily used and possibly in the grain environment so that there is much more we can piece of these but let's all learn from this bad lesson and make sure that other chemicals are concerned. brutalized
12:12 pm
in ways that is more cautionary or protective of the world's oceans mr ross thank you very much for your time on those that is. also as a reporter peter vause joining us live from toronto thank you now the u.n. special envoy to yemen says he's hopeful that the airports in the capital sanaa will reopen next week some of them that i think military call a mission shot off commercial access to the airport and twenty sixteen of the city was taken by what the rebels that's also told al-jazeera that he's working on resuming talks with the warring parties as soon as possible. it's going to be within weeks i don't think we can allow it to be delayed until kind of over the horizon because the problem with that is and i've been reassured this week between people here in new york that people lose the narrative of peace and once you lose the opportunity to talk about the settlement the narrative of war becomes dominant

12:23 pm

12:25 pm
murder rates in the world outside of a war zone. that coupled with high rates of impunity a lack of protection has forced thousands of people like el mater to flee to the u.s. every year. for a moment the know we're going to go for it but a while but often they want me where they were landsea they'll buy it was dying get up. there no idea get a. new york on the side of adlai that. l. met had heard that the journey to the us was dangerous a path controlled by cartels who often target migrants but that still didn't prepare him for what happened to them in mexico from my father and over them will have more throw america one hundred dollars and honor my grandmother. in law minister imo because i'm not borrow a look at them or i want. he was forced to mortgage his home to pay they were released and continue do the us.
12:26 pm

12:27 pm
against him as well as a copy of his keen police record one of the windows for you to come in for you if you don't see any. joy or authorities or. just have your care and therefore. they want to use up ok your example here your second thing is only for the nine. johns are you sure you have a lot of work at the moment but it doesn't mean they're lying with the mobile phones. nine days after he arrived in the u.s. element was deported back to one dude asked when he got here he found out that his daughter was still in the u.s. in a shelter i'm going to. make. sure
12:28 pm
you know what it. is. when you're in the air and. the fuel. in the month of. the month really work on the. when thousands of families like element and his daughter were fleeing to the u.s. over the past few months they didn't know of all the trumpet ministrations new policy to separate families at the border. the policy was in the works for over a year but it was fully implemented in may i have put in place a zero tolerance policy for your legal entrance on our southwest border if you cross the border of offering then we will prosecute you if you are smart during
12:29 pm
a child then we will prosecute you and their child may be separated from you as required by law it was a policy that was meant to complete the government's goals fool prosecution for what is ultimately a misdemeanor of the way a person entered or at least that's what they want to say that it is. the administration has said the policy was intended to deter people from coming to the us and all of the governments stop separating families after widespread outcry it resulted in nearly three thousand children being taken from their pair. and with no plan to reunite them officials have claimed they're only targeting people who cross the border illegally if you're seeking asylum go to a port of entry you do not need to break the law of the united states to seek asylum. but it's not that simple ports of entry include the bridges that
12:30 pm
connect the u.s. and mexico. a person has the right to seek asylum once they're in the u.s. even people who cross illegally but first they have to make it in. the trumpet ministration has been stationing border agents in the middle of international bridges turning asylum seekers away often telling them there's no space we can understand how suddenly the excuse is that there is no room numbers are no where near they were ten years ago of people presenting our ports of entry and people asking for asylum. turning asylum seekers away on u.s. soil goes against our own laws and it goes against international law as lawyers have sued the trumpet ministration for turning away asylum seekers but until a judge rules it continues. we heard that this was happening on the bridge that connects us what is mexico with paso texas. and as we were driving into the u.s.
12:31 pm
we saw two people being stopped by american border agents on the bridge. they were turned away. they told us they'd come from what. it was left in your deck and. that. is that. it went at it and i have to focus at about the what in my life. that. he'd only want be thrown out or siblings told us they'd been targeted by a gang and fled and wanted to find their mother who lives in the u.s. but they didn't seem to know what was waiting for them you know it was. a. case on some came to this effort and later.
12:32 pm
on it. is us on the phone is mayor. but if you're one of them out of it immediately yes this is them or no process. right now they don't have many options they can wait here in four days one of mexico's most violent cities or try to cross illegally but that now leads to criminal prosecution. it only won't be thrown i tried again but this time we were there filming. they were stopped by border patrol agents again and were told to wait.
12:33 pm
and then despite being told it was for just a half hour earlier they were allowed into the u.s. . we found out later that they were separated. it only more who's eighteen was sent to an adult detention center and put their own sixteen to a children's shelter. many people who are arriving they don't even know what asylum is they know that they left because they needed to save their lives. those seeking asylum in the u.s. are interviewed by the government to see if they qualify it's called a credible fear interview the outcome determines whether or not they can stay. but the administration is seeking to make that harder by changing the.
