corruption. plus a display of affection or aggression al-jazeera uncovers the dark truth about the treatment of animals in china's marine parks. after historic three days with north korea's kim jong un the president of south korea is back on home soil. address the nation about the trip to the north he said north korea had asked the south to mediate talks with washington and that camp wants a second summit with the u.s. president donald trump as soon as possible. i shall get your nose since the into korean relationship is in line with the development of the relationship between the u.s. and north korea pyongyang asked us to be the mediator they propose to work closely with south korea as well i think the u.s. should understand the position of north korea and resume the talks as soon as
2:02 pm
possible i believe the accomplishments made at the summit this time will lead to the progress option of the talks. now to robert wright is live for us in seoul resisting that move went straight to the media center to make this speech from the airport after his three day trip. that's right laura it was his first stop was basically to try to sell this now to the south korean nation he has come back in confident mood as indeed he should i think people here are generally agreed that this is something of a high point in into korean relations it's difficult to remember a time when relations were as good as this but after the last several days of smiles and handshakes and hugs he's been facing some tough questions just about the details of the kind of deal that he has come back with and also what now lies ahead in this role as the mediator in chief if you like he has repeated in his address
2:03 pm
to south korea a lot of what we already know know that we've heard in some of the joint press statements coming out of pyongyang that about north korea's sincerity to the denuclearization process and indeed that kim jong un is very keen for that second summit and also to welcome secretary of state mike pompei o to pyongyang so all of that sounds very good but we're also getting some kind of an indication from from moon just about the kind of gulf that still exists between north korea and the u.s. position when it comes to denuclearization what both sides are expecting we heard for example that was playing up the fact that north korea has offered to do to close down the young beyond nuclear facility which is key to their weapons testing or weapons development but it is still asking for concessions and none was really pushed by journalists at this briefing to say what concessions does north korea
2:04 pm
want so you do get an impression that money is privy after this session with kim jong un to north korea's bottom line what they want to see is their position their demands being met but he's not revealing that it seems as though he is taking. that position now to the united states for a meeting next week on the sidelines of the united nations where he will meet with u.s. president donald trump to start the nitty gritty the negotiating between the two to see if he can close the gap so he is very much a man under pressure laura and diden and how much is he's taking his legacy on the success of these talks. interestingly he won the election here not based on his diplomatic skills but as far as people in south korea are concerned on domestic matters the state of the economy and so on but his tenure in office has coincided with this incredible crisis that we've seen over the
2:05 pm
past year with north korea's nuclear testing with threats from donald trump and he has stepped into the breach if you like so this is very much his legacy but interestingly his popularity has been slipping recently people here in south korea they live with the north korea question sometimes it's a north korea crisis it goes back from one to the other on a daily basis and actually they are more interested at times in more bread and butter issues the state of the economy jobs house prices and so on so moon does have a hard sell here in trying to keep people on board but i think south koreans generally are still giving him their support but he has the other issue coming up which again he addressed when he was talking to the nation and that's the possibility of kim jong un of north korea visiting seoul that will be extremely interesting again in a year of diplomatic firsts this will be another first but also it presents
2:06 pm
a whole set of protocol problems about the kinds of street demonstrations and protests we are going to have that will certainly coincide with that so moon is a busy man and he's set to get a lot busier and interesting times ahead there rob thanks very much for the update from cell. migration and breck's at a high on the agenda of your opinion leaders meeting in austria presidents prime ministers in salzburg trying to convince senior leaders to be flexible about bret's that and the leaders will be meeting with out to me to discuss the blocks next steps also be negotiating measures to prevent migrants and refugees from entering the. your comment yet so far on the phone our bit with egypt we have for the first time a country in north africa that is willing to intensify talks with the european union egypt has proven that it can be efficient since two thousand and sixteen it is managed boats that leave egypt for europe and when ever they have lived it took them back it's hardly has the latest for us from the summit insults back austria
2:07 pm
for some time now the european union's had a problem it hasn't been able to persuade its own member states to take in a share of asylum seekers each because many simply don't want to there hasn't been able to find a country outside the borders of the european union like libya for example to stop people coming in but now at these summits the austrians who are the preparing presidents of the european union reckon they found a solution the austrian chancellor and donald tusk the head of the european council went to cairo last weekend to meet president sisi of egypt donald tusk is announcing a summit in egypt's fabry next year and both men and their people are briefing they now believe that egypt is the european union's new strategic partner they say because it has proved its capability of keeping refugees out of the european union and they see no moral hazard whatsoever in doing this sort of deal with
2:08 pm
a country with such a poor human rights record. lessing sits on the german side of the austrian border population seventeen thousand nothing much ever happens or at least it didn't until the great exodus of twenty fifteen when two thousand people a day were crossing the bridge which is the border now that bridge is quiet an average of two migrants a day make the crossing but the austrians would like to make it zero the whole austrian plan calls for the schengen free movement zone inside europe to be maintained by forcing people who want to claim asylum to do it before they enter the european union the logic of that says that people might have to ask a country they're trying to escape from to help them become a refugee the austrians release the briefing documents in which they said that some single male migrants were characterized by and see freedom or backward looking
2:09 pm
religious attitudes the whole thing is straight out of the playbook of the populous far right. that also plays very well in small towns like fry lessing to a coyote in libya and that it would be wise if countries like libya and turkey where they are received first had reception centers it's smarter to help those countries register them none of which is to say that this place is unfriendly bashir who fled somalia three years ago is being looked after by locals his journey took him through libya could he really have asked for asylum in germany while he was a sixteen year old in north africa is fairly sure feel fairly sure it would be really dangerous once you're out of your country nobody does anything for you and you can't go back it's just a whole lot of problems and trouble as it stands the migrant reception center and for the last thing has nothing to do because there are no migrants well over the border austria has gravitated entirely to the points of view of governments like
2:10 pm
