a deal to sell part of its services fields. another day of protest since the don supporters of the transitional government are expected to face off with those calling for the military to take over. questions about the future of aid in haiti as negotiations for the release of 17 kidnappers kidnapped missionaries enter a 5th day. ah, we begin with india where they are celebrations, to mock the 1000000000 stove dose of covey. 19 vaccines being administered. it's a 2nd nation to reach out to achievement after china. india suffered a surgeon cases earlier in the year, bringing its health care system close to collapse, shortages lead to a black market for medicine and oxygen cylinders. it is if one m has more from katia, i'm in the southern state of carola. we are at the vaccination center in the southern
11:02 am
states of carola, which has one of the highest rates of vaccination in the country. now. india has administered $1000000000.00 close 19 vaccine doses that accounts for 75 percent of the adult population between the 1st dose and around 31 percent receiving both doses. and they also hook elation people over the age of 12 soon. and that is seen as a really important to get the overall numbers up because 40 percent of indian population is actually under the age of 18. now the government is really celebrating just achievement today. but there have been many concerns along the way . there had been problems with the assets used for registering and administering the vaccine concerns over the actual numbers of shots given especially off. the shopping discrepancies in the state of mother, which shows that jabs had been registered as being given to people who are no longer alive. now the government says that it has addressed older things,
11:03 am
what it called glitches, and what is one of the world's biggest vaccination drive. but there are still some concerns chief among them as the disparity between the fully and partially vaccinated as one of the biggest in the world. the government itself has admitted that many people who are eligible for the 2nd dose haven't gone to get there a problem in rural areas where people have to travel long distances to get the 2nd government welfare programs, like food rations only links to people getting their 1st dose, india has record of the 2nd highest number of close 90450000. now currently, india is recording the lowest number of daily cases and death in around 7 months. but india is also in the middle of festival season. there are a large number of festivals in the government and held tech urgent people to continue to follow close at 900 protocols to get vaccinated to get their 2nd
11:04 am
doses. to avoid the kind of devastating. the 2nd wave of the country witness earlier this year, which was partly blamed for the very large gatherings, including festivals, which took place early. i spoke to dr. shrier golardo, who is an infectious diseases specialist. he says they need to be more of an effort to convince people in india to receive the 2nd dose. yes, corporation is very large, is by a guardian by itself. and all the states are not equal. some states are row very large ships as well. so very much, why did you get it? highly comply and almost 100 percent actually just upward in substance, you want 30 by 30 percent. so in that says it is we are exactly at the hop, your boss. when we keep glass on table, we say hot food or half empty, i needed other way to look at what we are the situation. we have this one of the experiences from the post like will give us this one for the 2nd link. i think 2nd
11:05 am
leg is little bit tough because you're both leg over, you know, very big read people. there's get, everybody want to go to racks in about a week. and so we have to give dos and demonstrate. do so people who are taking what does that take that is located you want if we don't, we are not going to see that. okay, so we need to tell people that it is vaccination is not one party or one interest because in the interest of your family's was id edition. so i live until you are live actually there just, you cannot be accepted in many places. an investigation into brazil's corona virus response has pointed the finger of blame at present enjoyable scenario. the report recommended that he faced criminal charges, including crimes against humanity. the draft report still needs to be voted on by the senate committee. it would be vetoed, it could be vetoed or altered general cedars i still genocide, as i explained once, let me explain again, was not removed. it was swapped for crimes against humanity if you will be indicted
11:06 am
for crimes against humanity because of the matters on prevents in war, manuel, house and indigenous people. what was removed was homicide. gustavo ribeiro is the founder of the online magazine, the brazilian report. he says bolton arrow has enough support in congress to stop him being indicted for one of the reports while extremely skating to the government could be worse because of the removal of chargers of murder and genocide. and for some government officials that is a win. because the other charges against both are more complicated for everyday voters to understand how to grasp at wild tennessee and murder are pretty straightforward. it would be much worse for the presidents reputation. but also because of the fact that this committee has no power of engagement, can only recommend the indictment. so now this goes to the federal prosecution
11:07 am
office who's had someone ex, truly friendly troubles. and also the fact that the sitting president can only being dated with the not from the house, from 60 percent of congress. and at this point was another, has enough support to block it if it comes to that support in congress terms. and yes, his extra extra device is finger. oh no, you had. the problems with both of those matters. approval ratings are more related to the economy rather than his pandemic response. because in brazil, we're seeing poverty rates crying really fast. unemployment remains really high. inflation skyrocketing, which is a road in families purchasing authorities in china, have cancelled hundreds of flying skills schools and increase mass testing to contain a new coven 19 outbreak. the latest cases have been linked to an elderly couple who
11:08 am
were part of a group of tourists. bay gene has maintained a strict policy and corona virus with border closures and long downs regularly brought into force. in other news, south korea is for is domestically produced, rocket has blasted off into space just a few minutes ago is on. 7 the newly rocket will deliver a dummy payload into or base up to 800 kilometers above. south korea wants to be able to send sunlight into space using its own technology. it's relied on other countries to launch them in the early 90900, i speak to john gray, vault about this is in bangkok is a defense industry analyst with janes. thank you very much, john, for being with us. first of all, do you know if this launch was a success? well, we have to wait for the full results yet to come in, but it looks as though it's,
11:09 am
it's going to be successful at the 1st stages. we have to see the full results yet . south korea has put significant focus on the space program in recent years. just how important den significant is this launch for the country, especially in the current regional context with china, reportedly launching a hit hypersonic miss far north korea, just recently test firing, a ballistic missile from a submarine. what does south korea want to achieve? well, this launch system, once it's proven, and operational will have the potential to provide south korea's military with satellites that provide capability in terms of our intelligence surveillance, navigation communications. and one of the biggest initial advantages potentially with this system with the launch system is that it will provide south gray, the ability to put satellites into space that provide capability to, to, to have persistence surveillance over north korea. and this will give south korea the ability to monitor potential north korean launches of ballistic and cruise
11:10 am
missiles and also to shape to shape a response. but this really is the 1st stage. so in the next few years, south korea plans to develop and start operating a series of space launch vehicles from the narrow space center. and the launch vehicles will be putting small satellites into low earth orbit um, further increasing south korea space defense capabilities. that's the plan and this is the 1st stage, right. so several stages to go because what they're launching, today's a dummy satellite. how do you think north korea is going to be reacting to this launch? i mean, came young or in, in parliament last month, like his south korea and the u. s. have destroying what he called the balance and stability of the region where there are military exercises and so on. how will pyongyang b, reviewing this? well, traditionally in the last few years, north korea has responded tit for tat in many of the,
11:11 am
in many of the developments in terms of missiles submarine launch missiles is, is one example. and so i would imagine that north korea will be looking to see how it could demonstrate its own capabilities in terms of space. it's probably too early to do that. but some capabilities advance capabilities would be something that north korea will be looking to demonstrate as a result of their son. indeed, earlier this year in january, the north korean government announced that it was putting in place a 5 year military plan to develop advanced military capabilities. many of these capabilities are space based and more, more cruise missiles, more ballistic missiles, and these are the areas, artificial intelligence and unmanned systems as well. and these are the areas that north korea wants to focus on to show that it is developing its defense capabilities. and to show that is a threat to south career in the united states. and so a response is likely to be in line with that 5 year plan that kim jong and
11:12 am
announced earlier this year, this clearly an arms race john building in the region with not just south korea, north korea, but also in japan and china. how concerning is this for, for the region, security and stability? well, at the moment, we're seeing a capability encounter capability being advanced across the region. and that's in terms of technologies and conventional platforms and modern, modern technologies. and at the moment there is strong that there is still strong rhetoric between the, between the, the aid the, the major players in the region that can, that can certainly persuade any, any attempts to move towards any conflict. to step back down this strong. jo, china, for instance, knows very well, is very aware of its position in the region, and it doesn't want to to, to a degree doesn't want to upset the apple cart too much because it's aware that
11:13 am
there is a very strong repercussions to any major, any major military or any, any, any conflicts. and so at the moment we're at the stage where cape capabilities and camp counter capabilities are being developed. but there is also this strong understanding in the region that no one really wants to go that step too far, which could lead to potential conflict. so at the moment these countries are stepping back at that, that stage. john, thank you very much for talking to a thank you for your in st. john gray, that is a defense and less joining us there from bangkok us present. joe biden says he is concerned about chinese hypertonic miss our technology. has cummins come after the financial time? 34, did mary jane had tested in nuclear capable weapon where that technology in august in the san reportedly settled a globe before descending on its target. major denies the report claiming it was testing as space vehicle had equal haine has more from washington the what else
11:14 am
doesn't appear like it's trying to put a lot of focus on this. what happened was when president joe biden was leaving washington a reporter asked, are you concerned about this potential missile launch? and he said yes, for her part white house spokesman gen saki said they are reaching out to their counterparts in china through the diplomatic process. so basically this is all about a report in the financial times, it said that it over the summer, china was able to test launch what they call a nuclear capable, hypersonic glide. what? but so basically it's a missile that goes into the outer space, circles the globe at 5 times the speed of sound was able to land according to the financial times, pretty much near its target, missed its target, but just narrowly. now china says this was not a missile test. they said they were working on rocket technology. why is this such a big concern for the us? well, it's been a lot of, it's money on missile defense systems that can basically shoot down conventional cut types of missiles. they wouldn't work against a hypersonic missile. and it's a big emphasis for the u. s. military defense. one of the programs that they're
11:15 am
considering pursuing would cost an estimate, a $176000000000.00 over 10 years. but if hypersonic missiles become commonplace, obviously they're going to have to rethink their strategy. also important to point out that other nations are working with this technology, including the united states. russia says it is as well as well as north korea. again, china says it is not working on that technology, but it has raised concerns in the us. the un security council has hailed an emergency meeting on north korea day after pyongyang confirmed it testified, a ballistic missile from a submarine. it's a 1st underwater test launch in 2 years. the u. s. south korea and japan have condemned it. still ahead on al jazeera, the world's most controversial pipeline. russia is being accused of using its nose stream to, to blackmail germany. ah, it's another beautiful sunny day. the 30
