5:03 pm
the border forces told to prepare to mound surprise attacks. south korea said the north deployed 50 of 70 submarines, and double the amount of artillery on the border. the south korean president monday maintained a hard line, demanding a clear apology. that's how the north's expression of regret is being turned. >> both sides will want to portray this in a positive night. given the lengths of the talks, they'll do everything they could to avoid a dangerous military installation. now the next step, whether they can live to the other promise made in the agreement. >> they great to end fighting and arrange talks as soon as possible in seoul or pyongyang.

5:05 pm
thank you for being with us on the programme. can i ask what you think this agreement, after it took so many days of intensive negotiations. it's wonderful news, it's a great sign to victory, diplomacy and dialogue over directorship and law. as a korean american who followed closely what happened, even though there weren't, like, clear signs from south koreans and north koreans, that they were on the brink of war, as terry fawcett notices. the troops and military weaponry, and south korean u.s. are engaged in military exercises, and so the situation is very tense, it's great that the two koreas managed to cole through and come up with this agreement.
5:06 pm
>> as ever, when there's tensions between the two nations, there was a lot of rhetoric from both sides. do you believe that this was a situation that was out of control, and let to conflict? >> well, as we know from experience, there is no open channel of communication, and/or korean dialogue or basically shut down since 2007. there is a lot of miscalculation, and potential misreading of the situation. it's a dangerous situation for any escalation of potential war. so right now, both sides agreed to return to the peace-making table. they want to get family matters back on track. it's really great news.
5:07 pm
one thing i recommend that the two leaders consider, is to prevent any references of such tragic landmine exhibitions is to define the dmc. i have not heard a leader mention this, or any pundits, this would be a great opportunity to begin the process, because there are 1.2 million landmines, and basically the dmc was established at the end of the war, that, you know, basically cemented the 38th parallel, which was the vision that the united states and soviet union drew, basically, on the korean peninsula, and all the tension and ratcheting up of rhetoric falls on the anniversary of the tragic division, it the tragic division. i believe that sentiment, and
5:08 pm
sentiment on the north, south, there's so many efforts currently planned that once you do the dmc, the people of north korea, international people could do it. that's what we did in may. 30 women crossed the dmc calling for the end of the war. we believe that they may go further. >> you sound confident and optimistic about the future and future talks. >> are you expecting the crisis to happen before we see proper matters between the two nations. >> there'll always be a crisis and conflict until there's a formal resolution of the war. we need to keep our eye on the prize, which is that there is a possibility for dialogue, and cooperation, and so we have to encourage and urge leaders to continue on that path.
5:09 pm
>> good to get your thoughts. >> thank you markets across the world have seen big losses as the economy continues to slow down. the u.s. markets opened, the dow jones dropped 1,000 points. it closed down more than 4.5 percent. it was a major slump in china, the chang high composite index closed down. >> from june 2014 to june this year, the shanghai composite os wan the rise. from then it lost 38% of its value. last year beijing tried to correct this. allowing a pension fund with billions of dollars in storks, plus it didn't -- stocks, it didn't work. there's a continuing fall in commodities like oil, copper. they are price the at the lowest level in seven years.
5:10 pm
two major mining firms, they'd axe 1,000 jobs, halve in south africa. >> adrian brown sent this report. >> reporter: the share sell off began within minutes of the shanghai stock happening. recovering slightly. some of china's big companies, some of the world's biggest, are listed here. on monday the government announced a new and risky intervention to prop them up, by using billions of dollars for a state pension fund. it failed to stop the slide. >> how can a market stop every day like this. one, two, three, four, five - the market dropped for five days, and it never rolls back. many borrowed to buy shares, and are now forced to sell them. >> the chinese market aims to
5:11 pm
eliminate the middle class. the middle class will have no purchasing power. the market will be flourishing. worse still, the value of the pensions could be at risk if the market decline continues. >> i think i will consult the problem properly. the government will not spent all the pension money on the stock market. >> the government is reassuring the investors, everything so far has fail. >> since june, the shanghai index has 30% of its value, and analysts warn that the decline is likely to continue. once more the drop in chinese shares dragged down markets. the main reason, a fear that the slowdown in china's economy is worse than the government is letting on. the hong kong index followed the mainland sharp decline, closing down more than 5 points.
5:12 pm
the region ended the day almost 5 points lower. south korea closed down by more than 2%. at a consecutive loss. and australia suffered it's biggest 4-day fall, down by 4%. what the markets need, but don't have, is investor confidence joining us now it david, a professor of economics at dartmouth college and a former member of the of the bank of englands monetary policy. thank you for being with us. how serious is this situation now, do you think? >> i think it's very serious. it has the feeling of 2008. we worry what happens tomorrow, and that's the great worry. i'd say when we look back at 2008, really in the middle of it, we didn't know we were at a
5:13 pm
big turning point down. around april 2008. the question here is this a big turning point or is this the end. the worry for any policy maker, they probably need to act as if it is a turning point downwards, and trying to put more harm. that's not easy, with interest rates at zero, lots of quantitative easing and fiscal authorities - they are on holiday, but they have been on holiday for a long time. this is a dangerous time. central banks can't cut rates by base points, and it looks like a global crisis. it's a black monday. the question is does it become a panic. >> should the world have seen this coming, and how unexpected was it that stock prices rose so dramatically in the past year. >> well i think there was quite a lot of warnings.
5:14 pm
the pig story, i think, was that if you looked at the changes in commodity price, they have fallen for a long time, and the fall in oil. people said it was a supply-driven story, one of the things we didn't see was a pick up in demand once they fell. in time, the demand for the goods around the world was falling, we had data from a couple of weeks ago, that exports in china were pretty bad. you have quite a warning over the last year, a big warning two weeks ago. and then the market responded. a lot of people were aware this was coming. the question people have to make is does the chinese government know more about what is going on in china than anyone else. the bank of england, we knew that the rbs was fake.
5:15 pm
the question is how sure is the united states, and do other policy makers around the world know more than the marketplace. 2008, several central banks acted together. we'll see what the response is, whether it will be vital here. if they respond we have a chance to limit the damage. >> stick your forecasting hat on, and tell us what you think is likely to happen in the next couple of weeks. >> it's hard to see this is over, or that rate rises will come in the states or u.k. or anywhere else. i expect we'll see central banks have to act because of the fear of what might happen and will try to prevent it.
5:16 pm
i think we are in for a big down term. you arrived fundament this was predictable. the business site operates in cycles, we had a downturn in 2006, 2007, 2008, through to the beginning of '09, six to eight years ago. we expected this to come. the question is are policy makers ready to act, have they been taken by surprise. this is happening when people are on hole say. my suspicion is this is not over. >> appreciate your time and analysis. thank you still ahead on the programme - history in ruins, i.s.i.l. reportedly destroys an important ancient site decision time for turkey.
