because they're not releasing any further information however we have heard also on tuesday from the north korean embassy here in moscow that a delegation is arriving from pyongyang all of foreign ministry officials to have talks with their russian counterparts and that the pyongyang delegation includes the head of the north american directorate russia's perspective on north korea is that so sanctions against it are running out of steam that a war on the peninsula would be catastrophic and that the language used by donald trump is essentially irresponsible it would like to see a few more carrots being used in this situation and not so many sticks and i think that it will try to use its political and economic leverage with north korea to try and diffuse the situation perhaps dangle some incentives in front of them like gas contracts already grayling's or perhaps increasing the number of north koreans

5:17 pm
a personal in mail server and endangering government secrets while she was secretary of state can really help and is following the story from washington d.c. so really how is hillary clinton responding to these revelations. hillary clinton is certainly hitting back as the democratic presidential nominee as you point out donald trump didn't just criticize her he suggested along with his supporters that she should be thrown in jail for her use of a private e-mail server for government work well now hillary clinton of course hitting back against these accusations calling it the height of hypocrisy. waiting to see the outrage on the part of republican members of congress about this and you will not see it all right so what comes next what happens now can really well it's not entirely true that republicans aren't at least interested in the fact that donald trump has at least a half
5:18 pm
a dozen members of administration including his daughter and his son in law jared cushion or if you use private e-mails there is a bit of a contrast in terms of the scale and the scope between the usage at least on first appearances hillary clinton had a server in her basement there were tens of thousands of e-mails some which were retroactively considered classified these it least for now appear to be fairly benign and only a few hundred still it's all about optics for shell the fact that this was a key accusation on the campaign trail is not only sloppy there's a house oversight committee headed up by a republican and also a very vocal democrat say they want to look into all of this because not just because of the concerns about record keeping federal record keeping but also because we have that ongoing russia investigation into possible collusion between the truck campaign and russia in the twenty sixteen presidential election so the republican chair of the house oversight committee saying look we want to see more sending a letter to the white house counsel the democratic chair saying we want to make
5:19 pm
sure none of those e-mails are deleted ok and really how could you not the last we've heard of this things can really. european council president donald tusk says progress and breaks it talks not sufficient to allow to go to move on to the next stage of discussing future ties between britain and the e.u. he's been holding talks with british prime minister theresa may and london army philips has more from downing street in london. donald to resume a here at downing street for an hour and a half afterwards he came out and told us that he was cautiously optimistic that the tone from the british was constructive and from his point of view more realistic that the philosophy of having one's cake and eating it was finally coming to an end from his point of view and that reflects the european idea that the british have not been entirely realistic about bret's it and that they have believed to date that they can leave the e.u.
5:20 pm
and yet retain all the benefits of membership post breck's it having said all that i think donald last remarks to us will be discouraging for the british he said that from his point of view sufficient progress had still not been made for the talks to move forward and this is very important the european union has drawn a line in the sand and said that it wants progress to be made on the question of the irish border the very sensitive issue of those three million or so european citizens who live in the u.k. and what will happen to their rights post bret's it and the size of the brics it divorce bill in crude terms how many billions of euros britain is going to pay out as it leaves the european union and that there has to be enough progress in those three areas before the talks can move forward to areas which the british want to talk about namely focusing on trade and the future relationship between the u.k.
5:21 pm
and the remaining twenty seven countries french president says the european union is too weak to slow in too inefficient he has been setting out his vision for transforming the block in a major speech in paris maybe dig. in we this idea that europe has not disappeared. globalization has had its effect confronting these new ideas which offer to be solutions such as nationalism protectionism and segregation does ideas so many times have threatened europe to pretend to be legitimate because the exploit people's fears for too long we have ignored their power to them. the talk about war has been listening to the speech she joins us live from paris so natasha tell us more about what the message has been. well the big message from the french president in this speech so far is that the european union has to be reformed because if it's not the very future the very essence existence
5:22 pm
of the e.u. could be under threat he says the people in europe have become increasingly disillusioned and divided over issues such as security the refugee crisis and defense and he says that only changes can try and counter growing skepticism and stop the rise of anti you parties of course we've seen that in recent elections in germany in france and then of course briggs it. is proposing is a lot more collaboration between the e.u. countries in areas such as defense such as climate change security education and energy he's also going to talk about the euro zone that is really the centerpiece of this speech he wants a euro zone budget he wants a euro zone finance ministry to promote more integration between euro zone members and more parity so how significant is it that he is giving a speech on europe just a couple of days after the election in germany.
5:23 pm
i should say has actually been very busy over the past few months since he became president trying to rally support across europe amongst leaders for these reforms but of course the country needs the support of the most is germany france and germany often called the the motor behind your drive the european agenda now so far chancellor angela merkel is pretty much on side she also agrees that europe needs to be reformed and she's agreed in part to a small eurozone budget and ministries is a lot more cautious than a man who she certainly wants to be a part of that the thing is though after the german elections she will have to tread very carefully and will. have to wait to see who she poem is with in a coalition because of course if she ends up teaming up with the liberals the f.d.p. they are fierce critics of reforms and the two leaders could find themselves with
