10:02 am
coalition scored a major victory at the polls the liberal democratic party and cami to a party maintained more than two thirds of the lower house mr abbott says he wants to hold the debates on north korea with the us president donald trump who's visiting the next month sarah clarke is live for us in tokyo this north korea what did he have to say. a look at yes i did that has taken credit for japan's position number strong position against north korea he called on voters during the campaign to choose him because it was a size diable experience government and today he knew that playing to seek and strengthen diplomacy to deal with north korea and the escalating tensions in this region he also said that he would strengthen japan's cooperation with the international community now you mentioned that donald trump is visiting japan next month. i have spoken to donald trump today obviously to congratulate him on the election victory but they've also both agreed that on this visit to japan the tramp
10:03 am
and i are by world to make this issue central to this their policy discussion so north korea has played a huge part in the election campaign and one night out continued to be a central policy platform for shinzo obviously returns to power with what we've discussed is that the two thirds majority in parliament and looking purely at the domestic picture for a second how does the center of gravity of japanese politics change and shift if at all. well the interesting thing is it that way everyone was waiting to see if they were able to secure the two thirds majority and this does deliver. his ruling bloc the opportunity or the mandate or the visitation to move and make constitutional change they needed that two thirds majority to take that step he's made it his lifelong mission to try and revive as japan's pacifist constitution in particular he would allow to he wants to move and make japan's self-defense force
10:04 am
a more active military the u.s. drafted the constitution and basically made the defense force here a self-defense force it can't act on direct threats are has long said that he would like to change this this is his last chance if he does remain in power to do this and as i mentioned it needs a two thirds majority he also needs to hold a referendum so it will take time to convince the public to come on board it's a controversial issue and it divides the nation but certainly it will be central to one of the key positions of policy platform as he moves on the domestic front in japan sara thanks very much. well many verses in japan cast their ballots early because of a powerful typhoon as that was approaching the storms now hit central japan killing two people and injuring more than ten others the body of a seventy year old man whose boat developed engine troubles was found on the beach another man died after a high winds knocked down scaffolding at a construction site. the government in the philippines has announced an end to its
10:05 am
five month battle against i sold into fighters in the royal we the motor group laid siege to the southern city in may ransacking banks and shops and taking civilians hostage the defense secretary says the final forty two fighters were killed in a gun battle with his troops. this of the last group. there was a fire fight a fight so they were finished number of the lovable it. is in manila for us the fight is apparently over what happens next. well the most difficult part here peter is how to make sure that more almost half a million people have been displaced are going to be able to return to their homes any time soon after more than five months of fighting we largely the city is in
10:06 am
ruins largely destroyed by relentless airstrikes from the philippine military as you know the philippine military claims that they have already erased the presence of them out a group inside me are we city but not in surrounding areas there are still sympathizers not just around the area we city but all across the province of landau those soar and this is the difficult part because at the same time they are the philippine military so also fight a war on so many fronts there is still fighting a war against the communist party of the philippines there is still another area in mindanao where pro iso groups are also continuously battling it out against the philippine military so yes the leaders of the mouth a group may have been killed the presence within morale we city may have already been erased but the ideal idiology itself and the presence of the mouth is not yet finished so the difficult part is just about to begin another story we're following for us is the. can we expect from that.
10:07 am
well as you know it's going to happen in the next couple of days the role of a president of the good that there it is chairmanship of the assay and it's critical there's so many issues on the ground that earlier the u.s. secretary of defense has already congratulated the philippine military for its war against pro eisel groups it is security at discussions and security will most likely be on the agenda but will is what is expected to dominate the talks are the issue of north korea as the u.s. government tries to rally a more united front with south korea and japan in order to find a united front to deal with north korea many security experts here say peter that this is actually this attempt to try to do trilateral talks might also be a preparation for a possibility of armed conflict how do you see mr tillotson in gauge with the idea or mr mattis rather how do the with the reality of this idea that the philippines
10:08 am
has demonstrated over the past couple of years slightly shifting its allegiances within the region and the philippines leader is friendly to everyone on the face of it well yes definitely i mean when president of the good that there was sworn into office he actually asked u.s. troops to leave mindanao he said he was breaking away completely from the country's relationship with the united states but clearly here what we're seeing here is that the president's words did not become automatically policy nothing has changed on the ground the involvement of the united states in mindanao has never been bigger they had troops on the ground involved in surveillance and counter-surveillance in the city they had the marine special operations group there they are in different parts of the philippines so what clearly shows this peter is that the relationship between the philippines and the united states goes beyond and if you know president jamilah thanks very much. now the gulf crisis that scene casts are living under
10:09 am
a blockade fanie five months looks like it will drag on the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson is in the region but says the saudi arabian led bloc is not ready to talk to the sins held high level discussions in qatar and saudi arabia calling for a deescalation of the tensions pascoe hain reports now from doha. he talked tough on his way over blaming the saudi led coalition for the impasse but in the region the tough talk stopped meetings with the crown prince mohammed bin solomon i asked him to please and gauge please and gauge in dialogue. there is not a strong indication that parties are ready to talk yet. and so we cannot force talks upon people who are not ready to talk still us secretary of state rex tillerson took great pains to compliment the qatari significant progress has been made in
10:10 am
a number of important efforts in our counterterrorism joint efforts including sharing of terrorist list terrorist financing we've participated in a number of counterterrorism technical sessions and training and significant steps have been taken to enhance aviation security he didn't criticize the blockading countries not even after the saudis seem to publicly slight him by sending the deputy minister of protocol to the airport for his part that qatari foreign minister is clearly frustrated by the behavior of the four blockading countries. i also feel sorry to say that they are not ready to face this issue and to tackle with dialogue the reasons for this crisis these countries have resorted to undergo a magic methods that have nothing to do with modern diplomatic channels and this is no good. secretary tillerson isn't leaving the region and he is expected to do one more press conference this time on his own here in doha so that means he has one more chance however unlikely to try and put some public pressure on the blockading
