site will create recently stepped up weapons test resumed the intercontinental ballistic missile launches. for the 1st time since 2017 and last week is late kim john promised to speed up the development of his country's nuclear arsenal. as bring in heiner clink, he's a national security and less than senior associates at the center for strategic and international studies. he joins us from washington, d. c via z. thank you for your time. now north korea said it demolish the pony re nuclear test, sign back in 2018. in light of that. how likely is it that it could be about to conduct a nuclear test? there well thank you very much for having me this evening. i would it says that it is quite likely we found ourselves in yet another provocation. psycho. ready initiated by jim regime john young, we've seen a steady increase in muscle tess escalade recently with an icbm tass.
and despite the fact that with great fanfare, other north trends supposedly destroyed this site, most observers knew from the very beginning that it could be quickly rebuilt quickly refurbished or its original intent. next week we will see that in the coming weeks, the last nuclear test at the north korea did was in september 2017 where it claimed it, it made it set off a hydrogen bomb. if we see a test this month, what could it look like? i think it, it will obviously be a some sort of nuclear capability. the exact type i would offer is largely irrelevant. i think it will meant as more of
a political signal to the biden administration, and perhaps more pointedly to the new president of south korea preserve, you will be inaugurated next week. and that we, again, as i mentioned, find ourselves in a, in a cycle provocation from the dpr k. and dpr k really only has one playbook to get the types of concessions that it seeks from the outside world. that's military provocation. and within the last several years, and nothing has worked in essence. so now the only thing remaining is a nuclear test. president biden visit south korea and to pan at the end of the month. how do you expand? expects him to respond to these provocations? what options available to him? i think they'll be doubling down of sanctions. as a matter of fact,
the bind administration and recent months as introduced additional sanctions, the un security council i. and although the united states government has reiterated its position that it does not seek any preconditions to talks with north korea, i do not believe the biden ministration, just like the predecessor administration, is going to be in essence, black mailed or coerced into negotiations. on a claim to national security analyst and senior associate at the center for speech, teacher and international studies. thank you for your time. thank you. now that you case, conservative party has lost hundreds of local council seats in election as and described as a difficult night for the government. main opposition. labor party made significant gains in london, but was less successful outside the capital under simmons. his more this
was labeled when the couldn't have been close to the home to the conservatives. the party had controlled local government in westminster since 1964. now for the 1st time, the famous streets of power here all run by labour control, city of westminster council, in london, burrows, bonnet, and wounds with also failed to reload the party. one's worth was taken up to 44 years of conservative rule. but despite the elation of labor's leader, kear, stone hillside, london, labor gains were turning out to be modest and was nevertheless, in good cheer. this is a massive turning point for the labor party, from the depths of 2019. we're back on track now for the general election, showing what the change that we've done, the whole change we've done in the last 2 years. what a difference. it is my. but had this been a general election, the results wouldn't have stacked up to make kiss,
dharma prime minister. i might go to chorus johnson ratios to visit a school in west london. as results were coming in. the mass weren't good for the prime minister. that's right. it's mid term, and it's certainly a mixed set of results. and we've had a tough night in some parts of the, of the country. but on the other hand, in other parts of the country, you're still seeing a conserved is going forward and, and making quite remarkable gains in places that i would go to conservative for a long time. or if ever part again, the scandal over coded rule breaches in downing street, including by johnson himself loom large in the selection. but the overall damage to the governing conservative party is less than expected. and for labor out of the blue, something to dampen the celebrations. please have announced they've reopened an investigation into claims that storm are also breached kobe regulations when drinking bear with an office with a group of colleagues. in essence,
the message from london voters doesn't reflect the mood all over the country. however, the conservative party will have to work hard to try to quell midterm descent a so these results aren't really a disaster, but at the very least, they serve as a big warning shot. and the main target has been boris johnson for his wrongdoings and his style. of leadership, many londoners have given the negative burden to the conservative party, and that's going to resonate in the corridors of power here. and re, simmons al jazeera london, the national party sion fane next likely to come out on top in northern ireland selections. vast time in the regions history, the corner state of the parties manifesto is to leave the united kingdom and unites with the island of island. but as jo, how reports from belfast, that still a distant prospect, is an early wind fishing train.
the count promised many more for the nationalist party committed to a united ireland and predicted by opinion polls to beat their pro british unionist rivals for the 1st time in a 100 years. on a lifelong republican republican party. i do have, you know, law and we also have to show that we deal with people's issues as they goals of these sites are not separate, are inseparable, shouldn't change, campaign focused on bread and butter issues like the cost of living, crisis, health and housing as precursors. to irish re unification the unionist vote on the other hand was split with the largest party, the democratic unionists threatening to boycott the store mont, assembly because of post briggs in border arrangements that they say undermine the very union they exist to defend. the non protocol is the key for us at that time.
and we need to get resolution about issue because by and within a conflict between grant nolan items we need to move our trade via and get rid of and ensure that the know who to call is doubtless once before, all which raises the possibility of a full blown political crisis after the election paralysis deadlock, arising out of the 2 party power sharing system under the good friday peace agreement. and not for the 1st time. that's why growing numbers of voters have chosen a 3rd way. and then the biggest winners in this election, the cross community center ground alliance party. northern ireland isn't just a place where the national union of northern, under the place that is diverse on this boat for alliance, is showing that there are more people who are satisfied with being a better both. and also being north ash,
it's further evidence of potentially seismic shift in the political landscape. i think would you put it down to is 1st of all post bracket, tiredness actually with what has happened since it's become very green and orange. had you put into a new younger actress who no longer interested in these things. i think you put it down to the fact that for a number of years we've hardly had any government. and there's a real wish for a large part of the population to get on with actually getting stuff addressed, which isn't just constitutional. all of which sets up a fertile conversation about the future in northern ireland, one far less tethered to the secretarial constraints of the past. joe, the whole al jazeera belfast, a digital version of a new museum of african heritage, has been launched in gone as captain acura gives visitors an online preview of the physical pattern frickin heritage museum, which is g to open next year. not web reports. there's so much william
