6:00 pm
[000:00:00;00] ah safe mm hm. and then the international intake option excellence award bought now for your hero, anti semitism is of evil under a labor government, it will not be tolerated in any form. what so ever. beneath the surface lies a darker side in british politics, the labour files hard one on al jazeera. ah, this is al jazeera
6:01 pm
ah. hello there. i am nora. kyle, this is the news. our live from dough are coming up in the next 60 minutes. russia's president announces a military mobilization and hence at the use of nuclear weapons, nato calls it a reckless rhetoric. the invasion of ukraine is dominating the un general assembly . you as president joe biden is due to speak shortly. i reckon fiona strengthens as it moves up the atlantic ocean after destroying parts of puerto rico and the dominican republic. the lamar court when for a dis, just community at a remote australian island energy company santos is blocked from drilling for gas and amgen, ashwin sports as roger federer for pass for his final event. the 20 time grant sam champion has promised tennis fancy won't disappear from the game at once. he's retired.
6:02 pm
russian president vladimir putin is calling up reservists a fight in ukraine. he made the announcements during an address to the nation. the defense minister says the parcel mobilization will involve drafting around $300000.00 personnel. russian troops have been losing ground to ukraine's counter offensive in the northeast. meanwhile, moscow, back separatists and 4 ukrainian regions have said they'll hold a referendum on joining russia. she though, yeah, prettyman, but it is right, but it is necessary to support the proposal of the ministry of defense and the general staff to hold a partial military mobilization in russia. i repeat, we are talking about the partial mobilization, only only people in the military reserve will be drafted when the priority will be on people who served in the armed forces. i have military specialization and experience be of those drafted before being sent to the places of service will have mandatory additional training relying on experience gained during the special military operation. the decree on partial mobilization has been signed to only her
6:03 pm
teeth jensen by borne that vladimir puritans announcement well further escalate the war. but he also said the move shows that russian troops struggling the speech, earned her portion, mobilization of the armed forces. russia just demonstrate that her, he miscalculated, he made a big mistake, strategic mistake, and walk me. i've seen so far, is that so the russian troops are ill equipped. they lack a proper command and control, and they also have struggle a lot with logistics. but of course, more troops or will escalate the conflict that will mean more suffering, more loss of lives, ukrainian lives, but also russian lives on our correspondence of falling reactions to this latest escalation in the ukraine war in just a moment. we'll be hearing from our white house correspondent, kimberly how kit in washington. but 1st let's go to gabrielle sunday. he's in the
6:04 pm
ukrainian capsule and gay. what's been the response from keith to uproot and speech spent very interesting now because it's been several hours since put in speech. it's now a little after 6 pm local time here and keep and his speech was little after 9 am. so we have many hours now, it's been interesting to see the reaction as a day goes on. it is definitely not panic. in fact, it's just the opposite. it's almost like we're seeing a shrug of the collective shoulders, of many ukrainian officials, saying that this will not change anything. in fact, president vladimir zelinski actually said this will not change anything. he said that the ukrainian military goals are the same now as they were before the speech, and that is to, in his words, liberate all ukrainian territory from russian forces. there's also some, almost, if you will mocking of this. it seems that though the ukrainian officials feel that
6:05 pm
these forces, these potentially $300000.00 reserve, it's being called up. they feel like they won't be necessarily well prepared or necessarily a very good fighting force. and that they say that it doesn't matter how many troops russia sends to ukraine. if they don't have tanks to drive and missiles to fire, they'll be rendered almost useless. and what they're pointing to is the fact that over the last few weeks and in the future now ukrainian officials say they hope to continue to degrade russian capabilities by hitting supply lines and also destroying as many russian military equipment as possible. so the bottom line here from keith is they feel that this is in some ways a victory because they view it as putin admitting whether he wanted to or not. they view it as put in admitting it to some degree that this war has not gone as planned for him. and that to also some degree, the ukrainian,
6:06 pm
a defense and now counter offensive that are happening in the northeast, east and south are working and gave what about reaction to plans for referenda on friday in the russian occupied areas. this is something that putin said he backed in his speech. what's been the response to that? yeah, well they, the ukrainian officials and the western community. the ukraine's western allies have all said it's illegal by international law. it's illegal by ukrainian law. and they say it's a sham, and they simply are not going to recognize it in the discussion period. move on. that's what they say. but it is complicated because clearly, even if ukraine and the international community, the west, i should say, doesn't recognize this. as is, as indicated, he's going to go forward with it any way. and then it sets up the quandary for ukrainians. do they continue to, to push
6:07 pm
a military advance in areas that russia will then say, they control russia, controls risking a further retaliation by russia, which let me put and said, he most definitely would do. so if that gets a little bit complicated, but the bottom line is even on this referendum, ukrainian said, we don't recognize it. so it means nothing to us. we will continue to pursue our objectives again to free all of ukrainian land. it is held by russia as soon as possible. okay. but i was on the in key. thanks very much. i was over to all white house correspondent, kimberly how get and kimberly wants to washington dc saying, and response to preach and speech. yeah, the white house has been quick to react to the issue of the mobilization of troops . the white house, very much seeing this as a sign that the invasion of ukraine buyback vladimir putin not going well just the
6:08 pm
opposite. in fact, the national security coordinator, john per bees saying that in fact they had been expecting this and they are not surprised by this military escalation. in fact, they see this as russia's military campaign, in essence, failing by the perspective of the united states, they see this as a sign bladder repute miss struggling. and that manpower is a problem. now with respect to the. okay, kimberly opposes risking to jump in that because we are crossing over to new york to the united nations general assembly where the u. s. president joe biden is about to address. so let's just take a lesson in as we wait for him to approach the stage.
6:09 pm
he's all seems from the un general assembly. we're expecting the u. s. president joe biden, to take to the stage to give his what's supposed to be a 15 minute speech in the queue of many speakers, the world's leaders, the at the un general assembly, all of them lining up to give that 15 minute speech. of course, i don't have to fix the 15 minutes and so the time does vary some what we are expecting. v as president joe biden, to give a response to put into president putin speech. anyway, he gave a surprise speech to the nation, saying that he was going to be calling out, reserving the fight in ukraine. earlier he announced that $300000.00 troops would be added in a partial liberalization to the forces in ukraine. so we are very interested to hear what the u. s. is going to respond to that, says president joe biden,
6:10 pm
taken the men. i have the honor to welcome his excellency joseph, are biding junior president of the united states of america and my him to address this somebody. thank you. mr. president. secretary general, my fellow leaders. in the last year our world has experience great up people. growing crisis in foods insecurity, record heat, floods and droughts cover 19 inflation and a brutal, needless war or chosen by one man to be very blunt. let us speak plainly. a permanent member of the united nations security council invaded its neighbour, attempted to erase the sovereign state from the map. russia has shamelessly violated the court tenants of the united nations charter. no more important
6:11 pm
than the clear prohibition against countries taking the territory of their neighbor by force. again, just today, president boatner's made over nuclear threats against europe. reckless disregard for the responsibilities of an armful of ration regime. now rushes calling, calling out more soldiers to join the fight. and the kremlin is organizing a sham referenda tried and ex parts ukraine. an extremely significant violation of the un charter. this was, should see these outrageous acts are what they are. food claims he had to act because russia was threatened, but no one threatened russia and no one other than russia sought
6:12 pm
conflict. in fact, we warned it was coming. and when many of you work to try to avert it puts out words, make it true purpose. i'm mistaken all, jesse, before he invaded, potent asserted, and i quote, ukraine was created by russia and never had quote real stay tuned. and now we see tack tron skulls, railway stations, hospitals, one on centers of ukrainian history and culture in the past. even more horrifying evidence of russia's atrocity and war crimes mass graves uncovered it is in bodies, according to those are graded, those bodies showing signs of torture. this war is about extinguishing ukraine's right to exist as
6:13 pm
a state plain and simple and ukraine's right to exist. as a people, whoever you are, wherever you live, whatever you believe that should not, that should make your blood run cold. that's why a 141 nations in the general assembly came together and not drawn a criminal, condemn rushes war against ukraine. the united states, as marshal, massive levels of security assistance, the manager and aid, and direct economic support for ukraine. more than $25000000000.00. to date our allies and partners around the world stepped up as well. and today, more than 40 countries representative here contributed billions of our own money and equipment to help ukraine defend itself. united states is also working closely
6:14 pm
with our allies and partners to impose costs on russia. to deter tax against nato territory, the hall, russia accountable for the atrocities and more crimes because of nations can pursue their imperial ambitions without consequences. then we put a risk. everything is very institution stands for everything. every vector, one of the battle fail belongs in the grades as your grading soldiers. but this past year were all was tested as well. and we did not hesitate. we chose liberty. we chose sovereignty. we chop, we chose principles to what you every party to the united nations charter is beholding. we stood with ukraine, like you the united states wanted more to and i'm just terms on terms we all signed up for that you cannot sees
6:15 pm
a nation's territory by force that the only country standing in the way of that is russia. so we, each of us in this body who determined up all the principles and beliefs. we pledge to fan as members of the united nations must be claire firm and unwavering our resolve. ukraine has the same rights belong to every sovereign nation. we will stand in solidarity ukraine will stand in solidarity against russia, aggression period. now it's no secret. then the contest between democracy in our top prosy, the united states and i's president, champion of vision for our world, as grounded in the values of democracy. united states is determining defendant
6:16 pm
trends in democracy at home and around the world because i believe democracy remained. you manage the greatest instrument to address the challenges of our time or him in the g 7, a like minded countries to prove democracies can deliver for the citizens, but also deliver for the rest of the world as well. but as we meet today, the you charge you and charters very basis of a stable and just rule based orders under attack by those who wish to tear down or distorted for their own political advantage. and the united nations charter was not only shy by democracy, the world was negotiated among citizens, dozens of nations, with vastly different histories and ideology, united and their commitment to work for pace. as president a german said, a 945 un charter and i quote,
6:17 pm
is proof that nations like man can state their differences, can face them and then can find common brown. i'm was to stand and the quote that common ground was so straightforward. so basic, today, 193 of you 193 members, states have willingly embraced his principles and standing up for those principles . for the un charter is the job of every responsible member state. i reject the use of violence in war to conquer nations or span borders through bloodshed to stand against global politics, unfair and coercion to defend the. 7 sovereign rights of smaller nations as equal to those of larger ones. to embrace the basic principles like freedom of navigation, respect for
6:18 pm
a national law and arms control. no matter what else we may disagree on. that is a common ground upon which we must stand. and you're still committed to a strong foundation for the good of every nation around the world. then the united states wants to work with you. i also believe the time has come for this institution to become more closely. so we can better respond to the needs of today's world. members of the un security council, including the stage, should consistently appall and defend the un charter, and refrain, refrain from the use of the veto, except in rare, extraordinary situations. to ensure the council remains credible infected, that is also why united states supports increasing the number about permanent and non permanent representatives of the council. this includes permanent shades for those nations. we have long support and permanent stays for countries in africa. latin american car band,

6:24 pm
taking down the food crisis set on with as many as $193000000.00 people around the world experience a q a q food insecurity, a jump of $40000000.00 a year. today am announcing another $2900000000.00. and us support for life saving you manage, sharing and food security assistance for this year alone. rush in the meantime is pumping out lies, trying to pin the blame for the crisis. the food crisis on the sanctions imposed by many in a whirl for the aggression against ukraine. so let me be perfectly clear about something. our sanctions explicitly allow explicit, la russia, the ability to export food and fertilizing no limitation. it's rushes war that is worsening. food insecurity,
6:25 pm
and only russia can end it. i'm grateful for the work here at the un, including your leadership, mr. sector, general, establishing a mechanism, export grain from black seed, porch and ukraine, that russia and blocked for months. and we need to make sure it's extended. we believe strongly in the need to feed the world. that's why the united states is the world largest supported the world food program. more than 40 percent of his budget were ladies support ladies, support of the unicef efforts to feed children around the world to take on a large challenge of food insecurity. united states introduced a call to action a roadmap, eliminating global food insecurity to eliminate the global food insecurity. that more than 100 nation member states have already supported. in june,

's, feed the future initiative, united stages scaling up innovative ways to get drought, and heat resistance seeds in the hands of farmers who need them while distributing fertilizer and improving fertilizer fisheries show that farmers can grow more or use the less. and we're calling on all countries to refrain from banning food exports or hoarding grain. oh so many people are suffering because in every country in the world, no matter what else divides it, parents can not paid their children, nothing. nothing else matters. the parents cannot feed their children as we look to the future organ with our partners to update and create rules of the road for new challenges,
6:27 pm

6:28 pm
everywhere. it's also been the idea behind the in the pacific economic framework, which united states launch this year with 13 other end of pacific economies. we're working with our partners in the nation and the pacific islands to support a vision for a critical and pacific region that is free and open, connected and prosperous, secure, and resilient together with partners around the world or going to shared key secure resilience. supply chains protect everyone from coercion or domination, and assure that no country can use energy as a weapon. and as russia's war roles rials the global economy. we're also calling on major global credit, including the non parish club countries, to transparently negotiate debt forgiveness for lower income countries. to forestall broader economic and political crisis round the world. instead of never such a project degenerate,
6:29 pm
a huge large debt without delivering on the promised advantages. let's make the enormous infrastructure needs round the world with transparent investments, high standard project protect the rights of workers and environment, key to the needs of the communities they serve. not to the contributor. that's why the united states together with fellow g 7 partners launched a partnership for global infrastructure investment. we intend to collectively mobilize $600000000000.00 investment through this partnership. by 2027, dozens of projects radi underway. industrial scale vaccine manufacturing in senegal, transformative solar projects and angola. first of us kind small modular nuclear power plant, romania. these are investments that are going to live returns, not just for those countries,
6:30 pm
for everyone. united states to work with every nation, including our competitors, to solve global problems like climate change. climate diplomacy is not a favor to united states or any other nation. and walking away, hurt the entire world. may be direct about the competition between the united states and china. as we manage shift in j, a political trends. united states will conduct itself as a reasonable later. we do not seek conflict. we do not seek to call or we do not ask any nation to choose between the united states or any other partner. but the united states will be on a bass in promoting our vision of a free, open, secure, and prosperous world. and what we have to offer communities and nations investment, the design not to foster dependency, but to alleviate burns and help nations become self sufficient partnerships not to
6:31 pm
create political obligation. but because we know our own success. each of our successes increased when other nations succeed as well. when individuals have the chance to live in dignity and develop their talents, everyone benefits, critical of that is living up to the highest goals of this institution. increasing patient security for everyone. everywhere the united states will not waiver on our unrelenting determination to counter and forward the continuing terrorist threats to our world. and we will lead with our diplomacy to strive for peaceful resolution of conflicts. we shake the pol pieces to boeing across the taiwan straits rank committed to our one china policy. we just help prevent conflict from for decade, and we continue to oppose unilateral changes in the status quo by either side. we
6:32 pm
support an african union lead piece process to end the fighting. ethiopian restore security for all the people and venezuela were years a political oppression have driven more than 6000000 people from that country where the van as well and lead dialogue and returned to free and fair elections. we continue to stand with our neighbor in haiti as it phases political fuel, gang violence, an enormous human crisis. and we call on the world to do the same. we have more to do. we'll continue to back or un mediated truce and yemen which is delivered precious, much of pace to people that have suffered years of war. and we will continue to advocate for lasting negotiating peace between the jewish and democratic state visual and the palestinian people. the united states is committed to israel security, full stop, and negotiated to state solution remains in our view, the best way to ensure israel,
6:33 pm
security and prosperity for the future. and give the palestinians the state which to which they are entitled both sides to fully respect for equal rights of their citizens. both people enjoy an equal measure of freedom and dignity. that may also urge every nation to re commit to strengthening the nuclear nonproliferation regime. through diplomacy, no matter what else is happening in the world, the united states is ready to pursue critical armed control measures. a nuclear war can not be wine and must never be fought. the fire permit members is clarity council, just reaffirm that commitment in january. but today, or seen disturbing trans russia shon,
6:34 pm
the nonproliferation full of ration, i, full information, ideals, embrace for every other nation at the 10th and p t review conference. and again, today, as i said, they're making irresponsible nuclear threats to use nuclear weapons. child is conducting an unprecedented concerning nuclear build up without any transparency. despite our efforts to began seriously sustained diplomacy, the democratic people's republic of korea continues to blindly violate un sanctions . while the united states is prepared for a mutual returned the joint comprehensive plan of action for ranch steps up to its obligations, united states is clear. we will not allow rand to acquire nuclear weapons. i continue to believe that diplomacy is the best way to achieve this outcome. the nonproliferation regime is one of the greatest successes of this institution. we
6:35 pm
cannot let the world now slide backwards, nor can return a blind eye to the rows of human rights. perhaps, singular among these bodies achievements stands universal declaration of human rights, which is a standard by which our forebears challenge us to measure ourselves. they may clear a 948 human rights are the basis for all that we seek to achieve. and yet today in 2022 fundamental freedoms are risk and every part of our world from the violations of sin, john detail ration reports by the office of u. n. u. s. report detailing by the u. s. high commission to the horrible abuses against pro democracy actors and ethnic minorities by the military. human berman to the increased repression of women and girls by the taliban in afghanistan
6:36 pm
. and today, we stand with the brave citizens, the brave women of iran who right now are demonstrating to secure their basic rights. but here's what i know. the future will be won by those countries, the least, the full potential of their populations. where women and girls can exercise equal rights including basic reproductive rights and contribute fully to building a stronger economies and more resilient society. religious and i think minorities can live their lives without harassment contribute to the fabric of their communities. really, l g, b, t, q plus community individuals love fairly without being targeted violence or citizens can question and criticize or leaders without fear of reprisal. the united
6:37 pm
states will always promote human rights and the values enshrined in the un charter in our own country and around the world. let me end with this. this institution, guided by the un charter and universal declaration of human rights is at its core. an act of dauntless hope. we say that again, he said ask dauntless hope. think about the vision. los 1st delegates. wonder took a seemingly impossible task. while the world was still smoldering, think about how divided people in the world must have felt. the fresh grief of millions dead, the general style horrors of the holocaust exposed. that every right to believe only the worst of humanity. instead, they reached for what was best in all of us. and they strove to build something
6:38 pm
better. during pace, commitee among nations, a garage for every member of the human family, cooperation for the advancement of all human crime. our fellow leaders, the challenge we face today are great indeed. but our capacity is greater. our commitment must be greater still. so let's stand together to again declare the unmistakable resolve. the nations of the world are united still and we stand for the values of the un charter. and we still believe by working together. we can bend the ark of history toward a frere and more just world for all our children, although none of us and fully achieved. we are not passive witnesses, the history. we are the authors of history. we can do this. we
6:39 pm
have to do it for ourselves and for our future for human class. thank you for tolerance. listening to me, i appreciate very much for sure. the u. s. president joe biden address from united nations general assembly that's bringing automatic as to james base. interesting. and to that speaks from un headquarters in new york, james laws in that space, global health issues, climate issues, you and reform a warning for china and for ra, a number of other countries. but 1st and foremost, there was a message for president putin. yes he started with what i think is the news of the day. he started with his reaction to president putin's escalation in recent hours. his mobilization of more our troops to go to ukraine, his veiled threat of using any means and he said he wasn't bluffing. so
6:40 pm
a hint potentially to using nuclear weapons present biden address that straight on at the start of the speech. he said, the war is about extinguishing ukraine's right to exist as a state and ukraine's right to exist as a people that should he told the people that gathered countries that on under 93 countries of the general suddenly make your rock blood run cold. a lot of mention of the history of the u. n. at the end, he talked about the founding of the un 77 years ago. he said russia has shamelessly violated the court tenants of the un charter. that's the document that everyone signed to form the u. n, the were end of the 2nd world war. none is more important than the clear prohibition against countries taking territory of their neighbor by force. he said no one targeted russia, no one other than russia. once in a conflict, i think he is clearly trying to speak to all the countries of the united nations and saying to them that a line has been crossed. a line in the charter that many would say has prevented world war for 77 years. and that i think was the main theme of this speech. but as
6:41 pm
you say, laura, lots of other issues as every year you get to set peace speeches on the calendar from the u. s. present these weeks, lots of times. but it does the state of the union speech at the beginning of the year to the people of the u. s. and he does this speech to the people of the world . so clearly there was talk about climate change. there was talk about global health. there was talk about the food crisis and a fresh commitment. interesting there the u. s. giving an extra $2900000000.00 to tron alleviate the global food truck crisis. that also was there something that may sound like is not terribly important, which is talk of you and reform. i can hear. some of you is probably yawning at this point. but that will actually go down very well with the membership of the united nations. because so many countries think that the system set in place 77 years ago where you have a security council with 15 members, 5 of them permanent members. and they are basically the victors of world war 2
6:42 pm
needs to be changed. it's time for change. well, he, for the 1st time in public, in a speech like this is backing things. soundings we've had on back to the, to the united nations, linda thomas greenfield. in recent weeks he says the u. s. is now saying very firmly. it wants an increase in the number of non permanent members and permanent members to the un security council. there are many countries that would like to be permanent members. i think that is something that will win some support among the white a membership of the you and the 193 countries of that was the purpose of this speech . president biden trying to win them over to his side, particularly on the war in the ukraine to say to them. and we saw it earlier in the year and a vote in the general assembly that there was support the ukraine against russia. he wants to keep that report support, say to them, ukraine is in the right here. ukraine is suffering nation. it has been invaded by another nation. and that is a basic thing. it shouldn't be allowed under the u. n. system translate to any of that from the united nations,
6:43 pm
thanks very much time. or western leaders have warned russian president vladimir putin against the use of nuclear weapons in ukraine, specifically tactical nukes these are different from long wayne strategic nuclear weapons, as they can be used over short distances. i can be deployed in many different ways, even fired as artillery shells on battlefields. the size and power of tactical nuclear weapons can vary from less than one killer ton to $100.00 killer tons. i comparison, the atomic bomb dropped on hiroshima in the 2nd world war was 15, killer tons. russia is thought to have around 2000 tax for nuclear weapons. and they are believed to be in storage facilities, not ready to fire, as bring him william courtney. he's a former us ambassador to georgia and catholics. don is now an adjunct senior fellow at rand corporation, and he joins us now from washington. d. c. good to have you with us. we just heard president joe biden,
6:44 pm
