a missile and threaten operation. deep inside u e territory and china 0 cove at 19 policy under prussia after beijing reports more infections among athletes, just days ahead of the winter olympics and sport canada stay on track to reach their 1st football world cops since 1986. any tiers, rivals usa to rain top of the standings for north and central america am therubi in ah, we begin this news our with the ramping up of diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis in ukraine, canada's defense ministers in care of meeting her ukrainian counterparts. the nato member has been providing military aid to the country. russia is continuing its military moves, as well as troops of ukraine's eastern border. it's readying fighter jets in the baltic region to the northwest. and in just about an hour from now,
4:02 pm
the u. s. and russia will face each other across the table where the un security council meets to discuss the crisis for the 1st time. our diplomatic editor james base is at the united nations in new york. he's with us now live, james. the u. s. has called this meeting, why now? well, i think one of the reasons is that they want to control the circumstances of the meeting because there is an important thing that happens on the 1st of february, and that is a change of the presidency of the un security council. currently. it's no way and on the 1st of every which is tuesday, it's russia that's taking over the presidency. now that doesn't mean they can block a meeting. any council member can call a meeting, but it gives them a little bit more control of the situation. a little bit more control the gender, little bit more control who can brief the security council. so i think it was decided by the us and its allies. it would be a good idea to get this meeting in. wal, nowhere is the president before, for
4:03 pm
a whole month, russia takes the presidency. there was a big question though, in a couple of time when the counsel ambassadors arrived and they'll be coming this way where i am right now down down the corridor and into the security council. you can see through that will vote will lead me to take place straight away all. will that be something called a procedural vote? will russia trying to stop this meeting happening? that's a possibility. russia has said it doesn't think this is right that this meeting should to take place. it doesn't see any threat to international peace and security currently. and it may try and challenge the meeting that would happen at the very start of the meeting. and then we see how the other members, the other 4 team members of the security council stack off. now i'm told by diplomats that the u. s. and the european countries and the u. k. if they believe they've got the votes, they've got the 9 votes. you need 9 votes to win a procedural vote in the security council, there is no veto in a procedural vote. but we could see
4:04 pm
a moment to some drama before we see the main meeting, which is going to be a pretty fair theatrical and dramatic meeting of the security council meeting. then does go ahead, james, what could we expect to come out of it? well, in the end, nothing because we've seen this movie before, back in 2014, when, when russia took crimea, and the ultimate problem for the security council. and those don't want to force russia not to take any military action and want to condemn russia's actions. is that russia is a permanent member of the security council. it's all the time on like some other members that rotate. and if you're a permanent member, you get a veto on any action. the reason to have the meeting, if, even if you know that there's a veto at the end of this, the end of what might be a long road is to the issue. and i think to show russia that the world is against it. but of course,
4:05 pm
we'll have to see how the other members of the security council stack up and what they've got to say about this. and some of the african countries will be interesting to watch. india, i think, would be very interesting to watch what western diplomats some, some of the year a bit on the council of the west has been somewhat disappointed with india, citing a little time with china and russia and also listen carefully to what the chinese and bastard is going to say because of course russia needs the support of its allied china. but of course also we've got the beijing olympic starting in just 5 days time. does china really want a major military offensive starting when it's about to preside over the olympics template to get it to jamie space reporting live from the you and in new york? james, many thanks. and date the u. k is prime minister, boris johnson says that he plans to speak to president putin. this week. i will urge him to de escalate. we really will need to step back from the break and i think a rush, and he said that from the bring,
4:06 pm
i think that an invasion of ukraine in any incursion into ukraine, beyond the territory that russia has already taken in, in 2014 would be absolute disaster for the world, but above what it would be disaster for russia. well, that's bringing out a 0 torso jibari who's that live in moscow, forrest the u. k. a threatening to bring in sanctions against russia. what's been the reaction to that bad? also? well, according to the foreign ministry and the kremlin here as they are using the words alarming and counterproductive, they say any kind of sanctions imposed or the threat of sanctions are really not to the best interests of not only an companies they're trying to target here. but also, british companies will be as suffering as well. it's not only that they will be targeting russian companies, but also there are a lot of british investors in russia. and they will also feel the,
4:07 pm
the wrath of these sanctions, if and when they come. we've also been hearing from the foreign ministry, a spokesperson, who said that this kind of rhetoric coming from a downing street is not really conducive to any kind of dialogue of we've just heard in the past hour that according to the foreign ministry, the british prime minister boris johnson will be speaking to vladimir putin later on monday. of course, they will have a lot to discuss because of the officials in london have said that they are looking at possibly a sanctioning and confiscating properties that belong to russian oligarchs. in the u. k. and that is something of course the russians have said is very, very alarming. we also believe that the will be a discussion between the russian foreign minister, astorga lover of and his american counterpart, anthony lincoln on tuesday, where the dialogue will continue. of course, there seems to be more of an effort to keep the lines of communication open. but
4:08 pm
for the russians, the kind of rhetoric that's coming from london and washington is alarming. and they say that it's not really conducive to try and de escalate the tensions for their part. they say they are only carrying out maneuvers within their own land and they're absolutely within the right to do so. if congress, you have to remember that there were military drills that took place in april of 2021. that according to analyst here, there were larger number of troops build up a building up around ukraine. and there was not this kind of reaction. so the russians are saying this is just a, a situation that's been blown out of proportion and misrepresented by western narrative out. there is dawson jibari, they're reporting live from moscow door. somebody thinks, dude it with an he is al, from al serra still to come on the program, a shot from space. north korea's latest miss. our launch puts us tariff re within striking distance. growing gas worries tension with russia may push europe to look for new energy suppliers. at

a celebration worth waiting for. rafael nadal enjoys the spoils of his victory. his history making victory. father will be here with that a little later. this was ah, the u. k. government says the prime minister boris johnston has received an update held the reported to lockdown gatherings held at his residence. some of its findings will be with withheld because of a separate police investigation into the reported rules breaches. johnson is expected to make a statement later on monday he's faced calls to resign. let's go live now to london out there as paul brennan is outside number 10, downing st. paul. the prime minister then has received an update on su grays report . what does an update mean? well, an updated something short of the full report that we were expecting. it's due to be published on the gov dot u. k. official government website. we've all been
4:10 pm
pressing refresh on our smartphones to see whether it's been published yet and it hasn't as i'm speaking to you. but in for speculation, suggests that sue gray will talk about a drinking culture within number 10, down the street behind me. a lack of leadership and but her reports parameters did not extend to whether or not forrest johnson or any of his staff broke the actual law. that is for the police to decide and questions about whether he broke the ministerial kurt, again, that's for a different watchdog body to graze report such as it is going to be published. it was more about exactly what happened. there was a fact finding mission. it will stop vincent really sure to wear many people expected it to because of the extraordinarily related intervention late week of the metropolitan police. who asked su grey to steer clear of 8 incidents here at downing street because they were investigating. and they didn't want that investigation to be prejudiced by su grey's report, potentially contaminating witnesses. so for many people it's an unsatisfactory
4:11 pm
conclusion to this. however, the fact that it's an update does hold out the possibility that su grey may publish a full report at some point in the future. will the public get to see this update downing street had said that it was go to publish the that the full report when that was completed, this was before the police investigation was lost. what about this update? but well, except me promise that they'll publish. what sir gray has given them in the current form this update? i had a briefing at a lobby briefing this morning. the prime minister, official spokesman, was rather kind of evasive when asked about whether the full report might one day see the light a day. he didn't give a, a clear answer to that through a definitive yes. that said something will be published at some point during the course of the afternoon as far as johnston, as you to give a statement before parliament at around $330.00, gmc this afternoon in order to sort of tell m p 's exactly what the report
4:12 pm
says and what the update says, and frankly, it's what the m p 's, how the m p 's react to it, which be crucial to both johnson's faith. it sounds like there's a party that going on right now. pull what, what's the noise? there's a yeah, a man with a p, i. i, boris john. that person who doesn't like bonus johnson who's playing at boris johnson. bye bye on are allowed p. a system is one of the protectors down the end of down the street. i pull money, thinks the date out there's pull print on their reporting, live from dining street. there's been another escalation and emmons, 7 year war, who is the rebels of attract the united arab emirates with drones and missiles the you a says that it is, dissented one ballistic missile early on monday. i'm 30 minutes later at destroyed a missile launcher and who's the control jobs province. i'll just say there's mohammed. i'll have reports. the target was clear, united arab emirates, striking back against host the missile bases. and the man is the latest retaliation
4:13 pm
of debris from a hopi missile attack. earlier on monday landed in a remote part of bobby mobile. i doesn't know how not critical installations and abu dhabi were targeted by a number of ballistic missiles. also, the inward of dubai was targeted by number of drones. the operation by the grace of god hid its targets with high precision mirth or visual se, airports operating as normal. and the healthy did not have an impacts. ah, but the strike coincide with these really presidents at 1st visit to above. and at a time of increase the fighting between the hoses and the saudi quality in yemen. we reiterate that the enemy state, the united arab emirates, will remain an unsafe country so long as they continue with the belligerents against our beloved human people. and this month, how they don't strike on the 8th capital killed 3 people. on sunday,
4:14 pm
the us state department urged america to reconsider any travel to the united of emeralds, siding threats of missile attacks. the situation is becoming more dangerous because the nature of weaponry that's being used in these attacks is becoming more depth. and that's all the more reason why one hopes that the parties will be able to find some way to resolve this contract this conflict. but diplomacy has yet to solve this original conflict that has been going on for years and gated the world's worst human italian crises. mama's law bob lisita, santa north korea has released photos as proof that it conducted its most powerful missile test in 4 years. it's the latest on a flurry of missile testing activity, as long as it was under chappelle reports. the latest image is released by north korea are striking on sunday, a test fired and intermediate range,
4:15 pm
ballistic missile, the house on 12. that is nuclear capable. it reached a height of 2000 kilometers, taking pictures of the korean peninsula along the way. but it has arranged 4500 kilometers far enough to reach the u. s. territory of guam. but it's not the most powerful ballistic missile and kim jong earns arsenal. in 2017 north korea tested the last song, 14 and 15, the latter of which could in theory, reached the continental united states. and in 2020 it showed often even larger icbm, which hasn't been tested yet. the crew spent a lot of time, an investment in the past 23 years, certainly during cove, it in developing some of its missile capabilities, and that, that is a line very closely with a 5 year weapons planned. the north career announced at the beginning of 2021 with the aim to develop capabilities that will enable the north korea to fight a model, a modern conflict. yeah, us want direct talk with north korea. we've offered this over and over to,
4:16 pm
to the do p r k, and they've not accepted it. so the question is, what's can germans game plan? so not aren't actually really putting for much right now, right? i mean, they have to actually show up in order to strive to deal with the buyer on. so i'm actually again, i credit surprise with a paste the task because my sense of the bind people willing to talk if the north koreans shop it was north korea 7th missile test. in january, a new record itself imposed moratorium on missile tests appears. well, and truly at an end and her chappelle, l 0. mason richey is north korea specialist, an associate professor of international politics at hancock, university of foreign studies. he says, these latest launches could ramp up the arms race in the region. one of the things that north korea wants to do with the tests and demonstrations, not only of this i, r b, m, but even of the the tactical guided missiles that we've seen recently as well as
4:17 pm
the cruise missiles is to, to underline the fact that it's not going to be clear eyes that it is to be treated as a normal nuclear weapon possessing state. and i think to some degree, having these dramatic pictures taken allegedly from the missile while the place sort of underlined technological capacity and sort of grab mind share where people think themselves. oh yeah. and or 3, that's, that's another country that has nuclear weapons. and the more that happens, the more north for you gets normalized as a nuclear weapons states. and the implications for regional security are not good. because the more than northridge normalized as a nuclear state, the less credible us extended nuclear deterrence looks for south korea and japan, which over time might decide that they themselves need to develop their own nuclear capability, which would juice up and already under way arms rates in
4:18 pm
east asia also missile defense comes into play as the u. s. and south korean japan might begin to think about how they could integrate their missile defense. just the push back in for 3. this would be considered provocative to china, which would probably respond in its own way, which would therefore also again use up the already continuous rivalry between the us and china and the region. just a few days now before the winter olympic games opened in beijing and athletes have begun to arrive. but under strict covert 19 protocols, team members, coaches support staff and media are in an empty bubble to keep them separate from the public. they'll be tested daily. on monday 37 new cases were reported among the arrivals. brings the total now to well at least $176.00 from athletes have already had to withdraw from the games. i was here with katrina. you reports from aging. chinese authorities have pledged to deliver safe and secure winter games, but they're struggling to contain the mounting case numbers of covered 19 within
4:19 pm
the bubble. so according to official information about 7000 people have arrived in china, head of the games. then already 176 people at least have tested positive. now, officials here trying to come many concerned saying that there is no outbreak within the bubble, per se, and the catching most of these infections at the airport. now there is a very rigorous system in place to try to keep tabs of people who do have covered 19, not only 2 people have to register the temperature every day for 14 days leading up to their flight to china. they have to test at the airport and then every day they are in beijing, they have to start the day with another curve at 19 test. what that's done. it's created a very tense environment within the bubble athletes and the support teams of terrified of catching curve in 1900. because if you do test positive, you will immediately be separated in quarantined and you will only be allowed to
4:20 pm
return to normal routine once your test negative twice. so there is a very big chance of completely missing out on your competition. and that means 4 years of preparations would go to waste. but unfortunately, already a lividity and snowboarder, swedish skia, and a russian by athlete have been among those who have tested positive. a cabinet minister in hong kong has stepped down off for attending a birthday party. despite a government, coal for people to avoid large gatherings, casper sui, was the home affairs minister at a rising figure and the prob, aging political party, the d. a. b. the celebrations become a source of embarrassment for hong kong. chief executive carry lamb among the $200.00 guests wrapped the policy, but more than a dozen top politicians, including the cities, police, immigration, and anti corruption chiefs, full gum guy. his conduct has brought the hong kong government into disrepute and he and his action has so caused a negative

4:31 pm
with the people. i'm writing about patina, kappa, out of darkness. my zimbabwe on al jazeera lou. ah, hello again, adrian for the get here in doha, with the views out from al jazeera, the headlines diplomatic efforts are continuing in an effort to resolve the attention of ukraine. the u. s. russia will face each other in the coming out. when the un security council meets to discuss the crisis, the u. k. government says that prime minister boris johnson has received an update on the report into lockdown gatherings held at his residence. some of its findings withheld due to ongoing police investigation,
4:32 pm
and yemen. scoop the rebels of the u. e that they're planning war strikes after launching. they say we're miss solomon wrote a tax on monday morning. the u. e says the attack was intercepted, but it launched retaliatory action in yemen for russia's president vladimir putin. the issue of ukraine is much more than just nato's potential expansion. eastwood's . the fall of the soviet union was a huge setback for moscow. and its influence, which makes keeping ukraine at its people close, essential. but at smith explains, as a bottom put in commemorated those who died in the siege of leningrad in the 2nd world war. his military at all but encircled ukraine. the russian government is repeatedly set. it has no intention of launching an invasion. but the option seems to be that philosophically were usually bad at predicting war. we usually get it rock either. we think it won't happen, but it does, or we think it will happen,
4:33 pm
but it doesn't. and we were surprised when potent moved into crimea in 2014. we were surprised when russia moved into georgia in 2008. we were surprised when russia moved into erie and 2015 this time potent is giving us weeks of notice. so maybe he's got something else in mind. well, putins views on ukraine, a well known figure. so he's often repeated them numerous spoke with you. we cannot be concerned by the prospect of ukraine joining nato because it will lead without a doubt to the deployment of troops. military bases and threatening us with battens there. when the soviet union broke up in 1991, russia lost control of 14 former republics. the loss of ukraine was the hardest to swallow the grain them. as i see it, ukraine is the key factor in the failure to reunite the soviet union. i don't mean that literally, but important attempt to re create a certain unity or union based around the republic. ukraine is an interest in this,
4:34 pm
and that remains a major problem with which putin has tried to keep ukraine close before in 2013 under russian pressure. then president victor again a co which rejected closer ties with the e u. that prompted nationwide protests resulting in the cove which is down full month later, putin annexed crimea will go search and see to long term goal. and his lease is rushes isolation west at non western development. and this sense ukraine, which is closely connected to russia culturally, is a window to the west. and i so is an eyesore for food grain are plenty of food has described russians and ukrainians as one people who share a single historic and spiritual space. he doesn't want to lose that connection, though that might not be the view of many ukrainians. bernard smith al jazeera,
4:35 pm
let's forget russian, says analyst vladimir sought the calls from moscow, good, heavy with us. so what, in your opinion, russia's intentions regarding ukraine. what is this military build up on the board of for dawson, at my a dean, actually, and there is no question of any aggression on behalf of russia any russia's intention to invade ukraine or to make even in cushions. i think that the whole question is revolving around the issue of expanding the nato and the probable participation of ukraine in the enlargement of states. this is one thing, another thing i think that this is the controversial question of puting i. u . s. and nature, medium and shot, arrange miss styles only ukrainian to the target. this is the question which is very much warren, moscow and moscow doesn't want to have for these miss. i also practical on this
4:36 pm
board because the flying time than that will be 3 to 5 minutes. and this is a serious question for moscow and another. another thing also is that if you remember back in history are these marseilles can't come could, could resemble the situation which was when the soviet union was existing in 1982 in 1008. your free nater decided to put a medium and shot a range on the a russian western border in native country. so and russia and the soviet union retaliate. so i think this is not the question of a your, it's a lation from russia about a question of a security situation. so this ongoing military presence on the border with ukraine is all about president putin trying to force concessions from the west over nato. ah, you, i says so, but actually not only concession. so another thing that russia would very much like that ukraine. i received news, you will resume the no,
4:37 pm
