8:01 pm
we remain deeply concerned about iran's dangerous mission the rest is rule in the region a strong warning to iran has trumps new secretary of state told the middle east. i don't see a chance on this is al jazeera live from london also coming up north korea pledges to dismantle its nuclear scientists to as next month. the central american migrants preparing to attempt that controversial crossing of the border into the u.s. under protest leader is a surprise favorite to be armenia's new prime minister to the ruling party which the context. donald trump's new secretary of state has kicked off his tour of the middle east
8:02 pm
with a strong warning for iran might compare with now israel after visiting saudi arabia as his first international till after taking on the role of america's top diplomat in peo how talks with the israeli prime minister in tel aviv and has warned iran against threatening israel we remain deeply concerned about iran's dangerous escalation of threats to israel in the region and iran's ambition to dominate the middle east remains the united states is with israel in this fight and we strongly support israel sovereign right to defend itself regarding the j c p a way present trouble in particular still is very flawed he's directed the administration traffics. and if we can't fix that he's going to withdraw from the deal it's pretty straightforward i appreciate the president's leadership and your position on stopping iran from acquiring nuclear weapons appreciate the president
8:03 pm
and your position on stopping iran's aggression in the region that aggression has grown many fold since the signing of the renewal of people thought that iran's aggression would be moderated as a result of signing to do the opposite has happened and iran is trying to gobble up one country after the other iran must be stopped. fourth this has a lot from west jerusalem of this very much seems to be if not definitive this preemption of a decision to pull away from the iran nuclear deal at least a very clear warning shot fired across iran's bows the u.s. is maintaining that no decision has been yet made the new national security adviser john bolton was on the airwaves in the states this morning u.s. time saying that that decision had yet to be taken but the indications from pompei oh have been pretty clear that unless something really unexpectedly major happens
8:04 pm
in the intervening couple of weeks less than two weeks by the may the twelfth deadline that the united states is very ready to walk away from it and that is something that of course benjamin netanyahu is welcoming hugely you heard that language there in that last clause about how if people thought the nuclear deal would moderate iran's behavior that they were so disappointed that is very much the same language that was using in riyadh just a few hours earlier so that the language between the two it ministrations almost at the changeable benjamin netanyahu has long been arguing for this kind of policy from united states it looks like he's about to get what he wants. well christensen in the joins me now live from washington d.c. a force of just mentioned the national security adviser comments kirsten what what else are the trumper ministration been saying about the iran do you. well we're hearing the same lines over and over again john bolton reiterated the administration's position that the deal has to be fixed or scrapped but also that
8:05 pm
they're still open to that possibility they say that no decision has been made yet if it could be strengthened perhaps based on the proposals of french president emanuel mccrone. that there might be a way to keep things going so they're holding out a little bit of hope here in washington for people who want to preserve the nuclear deal but you have to remember that mike pompei o got his job as secretary of state because his predecessor rex tillerson was seen by the president as not being tough enough on iran not that rex tillerson was in any way an apologist for the nuclear deal however after consulting with u.s. allies also in the deal he came to the conclusion that it would be better to build on the existing structure. rather than to strengthen it rather than scrap it all together and that's what the europeans have been advocating and the president was
8:06 pm
not happy with that approach so it seems pretty clear with the may twelfth deadline approaching when the president must decide whether or not to reimpose sanctions that were scrapped as part of the nuclear deal that they are looking for some something that they can call a win to move forward to. give them something to say that this deal has been strengthened and it's noteworthy about when harry mentioned when mike pompei i made the statement standing right next to the israeli prime minister reiterating the same kind of views that have been pushed by netanyahu perhaps the strongest international critic of the iran deal from the start netanyahu said that the united states is with israel in this fight that the relationship between the united states and israel is stronger than ever and that shows you where the administration is coming from in these ongoing negotiations but again leaving open some little bit of
8:07 pm
hope that perhaps some changes can be made that would stop them from scrapping the deal all together very good to get your thoughts kristen stewart the line from us from d.c. . north korea's leader has promised to dismantle its nuclear testing science assume this next month but there's no word about the future of pyongyang's ballistic missile program or whether they'll agree to get rid of that atomic else no company no back reports from so. the world saw the smiles and handshakes on friday now the south korean president's office is revealing more of what was said behind closed doors at the historic summit south korea says kim jong un promised to close the pool in getting a nuclear test center next month and invited american and south korean experts and journalists to inspect it days before the summit north korea announced it would shut down the site of all six nuclear bomb tests kim referred to speculation that
8:08 pm
test explosions had so badly damaged the site it couldn't have been used again anyway you join should only chairman kim said when they come they will see that we have to figure tunnels than the current test facilities and they are in good condition this. the willingness to allow visitors to the test center appears to be another concession before the planned summit with donald trump and the north koreans by this is the necessity. for any kind of negotiations because if they don't see that the won't ever. happens nobody is going to talk to them moon phoned the u.s. president to brief him on the into korean talks the declaration signed their included a broad reference to denuclearize ation of the korean peninsula trump and moon agreed that more specific measures on getting rid of nuclear weapons should be discussed at the u.s. president's meeting with kim kim jong un is also reported to have said even though
8:09 pm
the united states is inherently hostile towards north korea once they talk with us they will get to know that i am not the kind of person to launch nuclear weapons towards the south or target the united states across the pacific south korea says kim intends to eliminate another sign of division by changing pyongyang's time zone by half an hour to realign with the south north korea said it's clocks back three years ago saying then that japanese imperialist had imposed tokyo time when korea was an occupied colony moon also briefed japan's prime minister and told shinzo abbay that he'd conveyed japan's willingness for talks with north korea a willingness kim jong un said was mutual kathy novak al-jazeera sold. now in the past half hour hundreds of migrants from central america have reached the mexican border with the united states we're seeing live pictures of the border now from the
8:10 pm
mexican side they spent a month on the road on a hoping to cross into the u.s. and seek asylum but activists have warned they may not be welcomed by u.s. authorities the among lower palo joins me now live from this parts of the mexican border and city in tijuana so i understand it's kind of decision day manuel ai that decide whether to make it a bit to chance that there are going to try and get into the states or i'd i guess stay on the mexican side john build a life that. well we want to at friendship park right on the border just a few months ago a large group of these central american migrants began their march from the shelters where they're staying here into one or two of the border they are now demonstrating at the border wall waving at their counterparts activists on the other side some around two hundred or three hundred individuals some of them are members of this migrant group others or are activists and volunteer attorneys that
8:11 pm
have been providing legal assistance to many of these migrants again many of these folks are from guatemala honduras el salvador in central america they're fleeing conditions where there are high levels of violence many of these people are fleeing gang related violence extortion related to organized crime or domestic violence and many of them are people following this march and demonstration taking place at the border now they are planning to move over to the border crossing into you want to turn themselves into border authorities to begin that legal process of requesting political asylum from the united states was saying life pitches manuel a lot of people some of indian climbed on to the gateway there and seem to be standing there on sponsor of this demonstration the authorities knew this was coming what sort of numbers are they expecting to turn. certainly this was a heavily publicized as everyone here on this side of the border as well as on the side of united states did know that this was taking place or demonstrations
8:12 pm
happening on this side as well as on the other side of the border we've spoken to immigration volunteers who say that they've identified some around two hundred individuals mostly women and children who may have a better chance of qualifying for political asylum from the united states we have to remember that at its height this migrant group consisted of somewhere around one thousand five hundred individuals as since they began that trek across mexico that's lasted over twenty five days at this point many of those individuals have since broken off from the group we've been told by immigration volunteers that when interviewed when interviewing these individuals they if they do not have a strong case for political asylum if they cannot prove a reasonable fear of why they are fleeing their countries that they are being advised not to turn themselves into border authorities the political asylum process in the united states. ends up with many of these individuals going into detention for anywhere from six months to over a year so if they do not make you strong case for their political asylum claims they could end up in detention for upwards of
8:13 pm
a year and then only and that could result in a deportation so if they do not qualify they're being advised not to turn themselves into border authorities now it is worth noting that mexico also has asylum laws that are are somewhat friendly to to to migrants so others are advised to request political asylum here in mexico and many have already done so we should also mention that some of the individuals that we've spoken to a couple of men have told us that. even though they do not qualify political asylum in the united states they may not necessarily want to stay in mexico they've told us that they have decided that later on they will try to cross the border illegally as well but the vast majority of individuals that we've spoken to again a majority of them single mothers with their children that are that are fleeing violence in their home countries in central america do want to turn themselves into border authorities they want to do this using the existing asylum laws in the united states and they do want to do this the legal way which they do have the right to do so under international law it will be interesting to see how this develops that phenomenon of
