3:02 am
a workable list of ministers but he's unlikely to survive a confidence vote in a parliament stacked against him so the new government will likely become a lame duck interim government until fresh elections in the autumn on the weekend president sergio rejected the euro skeptic finance minister proposed by the five star movement northern league coalition dashing their hopes of becoming europe's first far right populist government. last night was the darkest hour in italy's democracy president chose to ignore his constitutional prerogatives and prevent from power political force the five star movement which received eleven million votes they've been calls for mass protests and the president's impeachment as head of state the latter seems constitutionally unlikely but it's a nasty turn that sets the scene for a potentially ugly standoff we are going to see throughout the next three. years

a government. will guarantee a prudent. public accounts. in italy political instability is a fact of life so they'll be little surprise about these twists and turns but no less anxiety over the outcome. of. their reaction to the appointment of carter early as interim prime minister has been mixed on the streets of rome. the situation is complicated i don't know what the person area we is but let's hope for the best and that carlo cottle really will be able to lead us to new elections. i think italians had expressed themselves during the election and what has happened now seems to be cancelling this expression so even if i don't really know this. we are left with a bitter taste here. the u.s. president says he will meet japan's prime minister. ahead of his high stakes summit with north korea's kim jong un is the latest move in
3:05 am
a flurry of diplomatic maneuvers surrounding the possible kim meeting which was canceled but now may be back on south korea's president could also have a seat at the table andrew thomas has more from seoul. what a difference one frenetic weekend can make and now looks like it's full steam ahead for a summit in singapore on june twelfth as originally planned has been the u.s. delegation inside north korea on monday advice on kim south korean born but the u.s. ambassador to the philippines he's been ambassador here in seoul in the past though he was very much involved in the six nation talks that took place while president bush was in office later president obama he knows the issue backwards he's been meeting with north korea's vice foreign minister jaison he again fluent english speaker she knows this issue backwards from a north korean point of view meanwhile in singapore over the coming days they'll be u.s. delegation and a north korean delegation meeting to discuss the logistics security arrangements
3:06 am
protocol that's all happening simle time in your sleep and if there is a summit on june the twelfth will president moon of south korea be there the blue house the presidential palace here in seoul said that though we're working on plans for president moon to be in singapore probably not for the beginning of the bilateral but it goes well between president trump and kim jong un if indeed it happens and president moon montjoy in at a later stage possibly minutes hours later but in singapore as well has been crucial to getting the other two leaders together and he would like a seat at the table. well for and this has crossed over to washington d.c. and speak to mike hanna so mike how significant is this meeting with shares are they. well it is significant in that japanese prime minister has often expressed concerns about any security arrangements that may arise out of this political process now he and president trump have been in constant contact in fact they hold a telephone conversation in the course of today now it is propose that
3:07 am
a prime minister comes to d.c. on his way to an economic summit in quebec however he could also meet with president trump on the sidelines of that summit but the key issue here is he will be seeking assurances that japan's national security will not be put at risk by any moves or any decisions that president trump might make and some suspect to that prime minister wants to get his voice in president trumps to be the last one to speak to him before he has that meeting with kim jung own should take place and mike we're now looking at a try lateral meeting with south korea's leader when j.n. getting involved in the summit and potentially having a seat at the table. well president moon is very keen to be part of these ongoing discussions he's been a critical factor in getting the summit resuscitate after president trump suddenly canceled it last thursday however he also has
3:08 am
a warm relationship it would appear with king. relationship forged over meetings some of them private the last one private on saturday evening so he might prove to be an advantage should he be at the table but it all gets back to the character of president trump and where they he does want a third person at the bilateral meeting where they he may be concerned about losing the spotlight if one could put it that way but as you heard the advance teams from both north korea and the white house are in singapore they are preparing for the summit they are sorting out protocol and one of the issues they will probably be discussing is exactly who's going to be at the table and when should the summit take place on june the two all right mike hanna left cross in washington d.c. thank you. now of brazil's government says it has reached an agreement with the main truckers union to end an eight day strike fuel and some food items are in short supply as many drivers continue to protest the national reports now from sao

3:10 am
a billion dollars it will have to pay the state oil company petrobras in compensation was taken many here by surprise is just how quickly a country as well developed as brazil with the seventh largest economy in the world can be brought to its knees with the economy fragile a weak government can only offer temporary partial solutions with everybody here now very well aware of how reliant we all are on a constant flow of fuel. protesting drivers have been blocking roads across brazil it means many gas stations have run out of fuel while those still have supplies attract lines of desperate motorists that can stretch to several kilometers is. not the economic recovery many. but second is happening. in illinois. brazil's economy is not weak was weak as the political movement in this country we've had a former president arrested and now have a weak president in office he has no leadership or charisma and the increase in oil
