one major nuclear power, russia notable for it's absence at a time of increased tensions between washington and moscow. live now to al jazeera correspondent in washington, d.c., i am guessing that north korea is once again will be high on the agenda? >> it is, before we get to that, i want to tell you what is happening right now, we are getting ready what will be an ecoughny of police sirens. so the motorcades in this town are plenty, and they will be headed here shortly, where the president will be hosting what and called a working dinner. obviously north korea is a big issue, and that's why we saw the president really focused on that. he did what they they called a brief meeting. finishing up with that right now with president holland of france. the president starting with meetings, and then the big meeting was with the
5:03 pm
president of china, and they put out a statement says they have made some progress. there's a way of changes reactors so they don't have to use highly enriched uranium that's this thing that can be used in weapons they can change it so they can use low reactive uranium. they have agreed to work together to reduce smuggling of uranium. in fact, some analysts say it has gotten worse. the president wants china to use it's leverage to tamp down the missle tests we are seeing from north korea, what kind of leverage could have the u.s. have on that. in recent weeks they have been talking more about putting missiles in south korea, they say they are defensive, the chinese do not want to see that happening so
5:04 pm
behind the scenes we expect the discussion to focus mostly on that, the u.s. trying to push north korea to do more, push china to do more, china said it is doing all it's can, but let's listen to what the president had to say about that. >> of great importance to both of us is north korea's nuclear weapons which threatens the security and stability of the region. president xi and i are both committed and full implementation of the u.n. sanctions so we will discuss how we can discourage action like nuclear tests that escalate tensions and violate international obligations. >> the u.s. and chinese presidents, of course, two of the 50 leaders at this summit, but no russia, why isn't russia represented? >> yes, it's been seen as quite as slight. he made the speech in
5:05 pm
progress, and the visions have been at these in the past, so it goes to show you how tense the relationship is, there is a spokesperson saying they didn't feel they were included enough in setting up the agenda, so a noticeable absence, that president obama highlighted in an opinion that he put in a local newspaper, he said look at the state of affairs. if you look at nuclear weapons in the world, more than 90% of those are held by russia and the united states. so it is an open question how much progress can you make when the two -- when one of the two biggest keepers of nuclear weapons is not at the table. the white house is rability aing says it will serve to isolate russia more. the president is says he wants to reduce both of their stock piles but they also admit since president putin took over they haven't been able to have those kinds of discussions. so they are trying to highlighted that they hope to make progress with the
5:06 pm
orinases that are hoar but the commitments will come from the second largest holder of nuclear weapons. >> as that nuclear summit got underway, dozens of supporters and critics of turkey's president gathered to protect. prepared to address the u.s., his critics were chanting accusing the president of supporting armed groups a group of nationals tries to drown out that and waving turkish flags. he has con determined a car bomb attack in south eastern turkey that killed seven police officers at least 27 others were left injury misdemeanor the blast in the mainly kurdish city. these attacks will never keep us from fighting terrorisms, we are corners organizations,

5:09 pm
well, what we are seeing is rescue work going very very slowly. a lot of heavy machinery there trying to use huge slaps of concrete, moving it away from vehicles that have been crushed. they believe many are still under the rubble with people stuck inside, the problem at hand this is a very congested dense area, and the size nearly touching the sides of the building on either side, so the work has to be done very very carefully, they tried to bring in a big crane to move the slab, but that didn't work, so now they are using smaller machinery, and diggers to try to cut through the concrete and iron, in chunks and pull it out. they are expecting to work overnight, there are rescue teams there and many on lookers, of course, and many volunteer whose are helping out with the mission. >> how optimistic are they
5:10 pm
they might find survivors? >> well, they say they are working as hard as ey can, but we have to remember that these people have been under the rubble, or under the debris for more than 12 hours now. as we were walking through we saw some of the cars and they were just crushed cars and vehicles just crushed right down, it is hard to believe how people can survive that, many people have been injured they are saying at least seven are being treated for their injuries some more serious than others people are trying to keep optimism up redses are staying up all night. many of them on lookers passing on water and food to the rescue workers, so there is hope. but it is once again the progress is going very slow any thoughts about why the
5:11 pm
bridge collapsed in the first place? >> and that is the question that people are asking. the thing is this bridge started construction in 2009, it has been delayed time and time again due to all kind of issues, the builders say they were under pressure trying to finish it by the end of this year. but the builders also say that the fault is not there, it is not a technical issue on their part, and it is basically what they are saying which is offending a lot of people, is saying that it is an act of god. politicians the chief minister has come to the sight, saying stringent action will be taken against the owners of the company, she says there will be a huge investigation into it, people are worries that right now there is momentum, but that can tail off, many politician here are talking about what has been happening but it is also election time, so people

5:18 pm
enough to bring about the possibility in the context in making that appeal, he was just participating in the war effort, by motivated the forces. >> at his political headquarters in belgrade, the supporters cheered the outcome. he himself had expected a 25 year sentence. in any case, having been released from the hague for medical treatment, he had no intention of ever returning to the netherlands. >> from the moment i went to the hague, i knew they couldn't prove the crimes i was accused of. to tell you honestly, after i finished my job and won, i wasn't mush interested in the delivered verdict. >> but in the croatian town, the view is very different. and the verdict in h the hague shocking.
5:19 pm
this verdict is shameful, a failure by the prosecutors. the man who we all know today, has done this oval, and has shown no remorse. >> the verdict leaves the international criminal tribunal in a difficult position. the judge's verdict accused prosecutors of at beth hiding and at worse distorting the evidence presented to court. >> we will review carefully the arguments put forward by the chamber, in order to determine if we are appealing this decision. >> he himself is campaigning for next month's elections in h serbia. his refusal to recognize the authority bolsters his standing. the effect may now catapult him even higher. paul brennen, al jazeera. >> let's get more on this story, a former chief prosecutor in the former
5:20 pm
president, and has also worked at the international criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia, and he joins us now live, thank you for being with us on the program. how surprised were you by this not guilty verdict? >> not necessarily surprised by the verdict, but pretty surprised by the overall decision of the three judges. a majority of two judges including one thats hadn't heard a word of the evidence. who left the tribunal following a letter he wrote to 60 of his best friends explain nag the judges in particular presiding judge had placed improper pressure on the judges. so he had to be replaced. and that judge along with judge ant nettie was a majority whose findings were acquittal on all counts. the minority judge that has been there throughout give as judgement, astonishing in it's criticism of the majority just to give you an
5:21 pm
idea of how different the two conclusions are. he says that the majority sets aside all the rules of international humanitarian law that existed before the creation of the tribunal and all the applicable law established since the inception of the tribunal in order to acquit. now to have judges this much at adds with each other, is inevitably will bring it into disrepute. i can't express where the right lies because i haven't attended to all the evidence. i can say one with thing about the aspect of the judgement. but does the court have any recognition, do these judges not have any recognition of how little this kind of overall performance over decade and more, will be -- will have for victims. victims expect to get decent quality judgements and what they get is complete disagreement, one of whom
5:22 pm
didn't heard a would have of the evidence, does that mean that the prosecutors may now appeal, which they can do? >> they may well appeal, but he is apparently very ill. appeals take years and it must be more than possible that he would survive long enough for any apeople to be determined. that will mean that this judgement, which to a large extent seems to excuse the serbs for what they did, will stand. and that may have a very very harmful eeffect generally. >> i have to say, i am not lawyer, obviously, i haven't sat through the entire process, but he calls for ethnic cleansing and that call for ethnic cleansing is apparently not enough according to the judgement to prove that he was with guilty of war crimes. does that seem extraordinary? >> it does. to many people seem extraordinary, i can't express an opinion, it is only a been of the majority. i can say this, they make
5:23 pm
some comments on the case, and on the theory of the case about something calls greater serbia, to which he ascribed and they give a completely false analysis of what happened many the trial. leading me to think they simply cannot have read carefully, if at all, sufficiently the transcripts of what was said in that trial. they seem to think that the prosecution changed their view on the view of greater serbia, not at all. he was very careful in explaining that there was a difference in between how he and others approached greater serbia, and how he never used the words had a similar but distinct approach to the problem facing them. his desire to have all serbs living in one state, may be something that can be supported by those that
5:24 pm
believe many the broader political platform of greater serbia, but the majority shows themselves, at least by the summary judgement, because the full judgement is not yet, and the full dissenting judgement of the statement of the judge that supported the majority, of whom the summary it is very hard to think that the majority had done anything like an adequate job. >> right. good to talk to you, thank you for joining us. >> you're welcome. >> . >> his comments have seen criticism from both sides of the debate. as al jazeera reports. >> it is not been a key issue in this election, but donald trump just made it one. this was his response when asked what to do if abortions were made illegal in the u.s.
5:25 pm
>> do you believe in punishment for abortion. >> the answer is that there has to be some form of punishment. >> for the woman. >> yeah, there has to be some form. >> he never apologizes but within 20 minutes they -- the doctor or any other person performing this act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman. the woman is a victim in this case, as is the life in her womb. >> there was the predictable condemnation. >> what he said today is just among the most outrageous and dangerous statements that i have heard anybody running for president say in a really long time. the idea of punishing a woman, that is beyond comprehension. >> and from his rivals. >> donald trump will figure out a way to say he didn't say it, or miss quoted or whatever, i don't think so i don't think that's an appropriate response. >> there was even criticism from march for life. >> often a woman make as choice out of desperation, and the last thing that she
5:26 pm
needs is a threat of punishment. >> hillary is a disaster. >> he has come under sustained criticism on his. >> nobody respects more than donald trump. >> on the day before the florida primary, which he won. >> real quotes from donald trump. >> this advert started airing across the state. >> bimbo, dog. >> one analyst says the front runner is creating massive problems for himself. >> it is a problem for him among women, it is a problem for him among pro-life women it is a problem for him because of his kind of lack of understanding on and issue, but also his sort of continuing this narrative that he doesn't see women in a poz t light donald trump has managed to overcome other issues like this, this time the damage may be longer lasting and have a bigger impact if he wins the
5:27 pm
republican nomination allen fisher al jazeera all eyes will now be turning to new york. joining us live from there, kristen let's start off with the democratic side of things how important is this primary to bernie sanders? >> well, it is going to be crucial for bernie sanders and i am standing outside of a rally that is scheduled to get underway in an hour and a half, if you notice there's people lines up around the block. new york is going to be crucial for bernie, but there's actually a primary in wisconsin this weekend that he is expected to win and he needs to win big in wisconsin, and then win with big here in new york if he has any hope of catching up to the front runner hillary clinton. but she is extremely popular in this state. this is her home state. she is about 12 points ahead in the latest polls, she also
5:28 pm
extremely popular with minority voters here in the state. her lead with black voters is even larger than that. if you look at the crowd here, it is a very young crowd, and bernie sanders chose the bronx to hold this event, which is a very minority strong area there's a lot of hissen paics and asians in this crowd, they are very excited about him and his message. as i said, they will have to really come out and show support on the 19th when the new york primary takes place if he is going to have any hope of narrowing the huge lead that hillary clinton has in delegates heading to the national convention. >> what can we with expect on the republican side? is. >> well, republicans surprisingly are also campaigning in new york. john kasich is here. he and donald trump are expected to be here, again,
5:29 pm
next week, trump, of course, is also in new york native. and it is really unusual to see republicans in new york because this is such a democratic state. and because usually by the time the primary comes around, a front runner has already been desited, typically by now, so the fact that these candidates are coming here, trump is actually way ahead among republicans in new york state. but because of recent miss steps and surges by cruz, and kassich trying to make up for the loss ground they are hoping to pull out and narrow the lead here, just for a little bit of context, to show you how rare it is for republicans to be campaigning here at this stage, the last time a republican won an election in new york state in general election was ronald reagan and that was the last time that the republican primary in new york was contested, so it's been decades since we have seen
5:30 pm
