of its sophisticated nuclear program the international community has not lifted any of it scribbling sanctions james berets al-jazeera south korea and with a view from the south korean capital seoul his rope mcbride. this is being seen as a major personal achievement for president moon j.n. of south korea who's been under increasing pressure since the failure of the had always summit both here at home and also from north korea throughout the events of sunday he tactfully remained very much at the sidelines allowing donald trump to claim credit for this historic day in reality though he is seen as being the instigator of this process of reconciliation if the day's events of stepping across the border is seen by the end of this year as one of the news highlights of 2019 then it will be remembered the moon j.n.
3:04 am
did exactly the same last year becoming the news highlight of $2800.00 starting this whole process that has led to donald trump crossing over the border but has he always has done throughout this whole process of south korea very much giving full credit to donald trump. you know what we really want is permanent peace on the korean peninsula mr trump will be going down in history as the president who made peace on the korean peninsula and i would like to give my appreciation to donald trump and kim jong un. if this does turn out to be a historic day for the korean peninsula and the people of north korea have yet to hear about it as always state run media in north korea needs time to edit and process these images into a form that successor to bawl for the north korean leadership especially given a subject as sensitive as the leader of the united states stepping over into north korea while the networks of the world have been broadcasting live these unfolding

3:06 am
kim and trump that trump repeatedly told the north korean leader that there was no hurry he said we're in no hurry several times according to and chairman kim seem to agree now how that would be received in south korea with the u.s. allies that are in range certainly of these short range missiles that north korea has been testing just in recent months that of course may be a very different reaction here though in the united states it's been a sleepy sunday and there have been few of the president's republican supporters really saying anything about this which is a little bit surprising however democrats have of course responded the senate minority leader chuck schumer saying on twitter that this is a typical trump show in his words and democratic candidates speaking to the the sunday morning political talk shows saying that there is this really is
3:07 am
a show with no substance they say they're all hopeful that these talks will amount to something but if you look back in the last year really after now 3 face to face meetings between trump and can then much lobbying about it from trump himself there is really very little to show for it martine heidi thank you very much indeed. emotion to. now we've got breaking news coming from tripoli the authorities at the michigan airport in tripoli say there's been an air strike as a result air traffic is been stopped this is all information that's been posted on the facebook page we've got more information on that story as soon as we do get it we will bring it to you but also the turkish foreign ministry has said that 6 of its citizens are being held fighters of the warlord trolly for half the and that they must be released immediately or they will become quote legitimate targets on

3:10 am
the voting centers closed about an hour ago those books is it going to be stored here overnight they're going to be counted tomorrow we won't know the result today there isn't even an exit poll to talk about but the one piece of information we do have is not encouraging for the socialist government the central electoral commission announced that at 3 pm with 4 hours to go the voting the voter turnout nationwide was in the range of 15 percent this is something that has given the democratic party office ition reason to suspect that because the government isn't doing apparently as well as it felt it would even among its own versus there's going to be stuffing of ballot boxes and there's going to be a dishonest result at the end of this process they are announcing that of course that is not something that international monitors all the central electoral commission are yet saying but it just it does underline how controversial this

election is it adds yet another parameter of question ability to it down the opposition is almost international community to speak out against what they call. connections that are not keys that. well international monitors are going to announce tomorrow on how they felt the election was conducted but the real issues with it not. the conduct today across the country there were very few incidents there was no real violence there doesn't seem to have been any picketing any resistance there doesn't seem to have been any bullying on the socialist side the real problem is that this was essentially a one party election socialist candidate stood in all 61 municipalities in the country unopposed in 31 of them because the main opposition parties withdrew from this election and opposed by weak opponents in the remaining seat and it is
3:12 am
therefore questionable what level of democratic pluralism there is in this election prime minister has acknowledged that when i spoke with him earlier this morning he said that this was not an ideal election we would like to have for it to have gone better but he blames the democratic opposition for withdrawing from it and also for resigning its seats in parliament and being absent from the entire political process at the national level and the local level so he says they will get what they deserve that may as well lose and if necessary we show initiate a judicial proceedings to have them removed by force that their full sets the stage for potentially further control the sea in this country in the 24 municipalities where opposition may is now sit and refused to vacate their seats. thank you very much indeed. of thousands of people who have donated money to cover the legal costs of a german captain detained in italy on saturday curry cater has been accused of deliberately

hours the prime ministers of poland and the czech republic deny that mr timmins is in any way a compromise candidate saying he's divisive and doesn't understand the challenges of the former former eastern bloc countries and the reason that they have to in their eyes push through those controversial reforms there was talk that manfred verba the favorite lead candidate of the european peoples party the sensorites was perhaps pulling out of the race earlier on on sunday but now it's not quite so clear lower and what's the significance of the commission had. well clearly it's a huge body which has the power to propose legislation but it also oversees national budget senate overseas or it conducts international trade negotiations it has heads of the commission fronts to moons would be quite an ambitious figure he
3:28 am
said that he wants to see quick correction on climate change a basic income for e.u. citizens and some kind of negotiations with african countries to get a grip on the so-called refugee crisis many people in the south on the sense of right see him as too left wing and we're hearing now that the general secretary of angular merkel's political party the c.d.u. says that very not giving up on their hopes of men for the german figure becoming commission president we're even hearing now from unnamed diplomats that they could be another summit in 2 weeks time such of the difficulties in coming up with a consensus anybody thank you very much and in fact a traditional farming methods on the environment has led some an industry to take a near approach in the u.k. one from his trial a so-called wilding technique and stock to roam free and the wilderness to grow naturally the results have been encouraging but they fear the current political climate could undo the hard work birds they reports from sussex for. just an hour
3:29 am
south of london you find yourself in the wilderness not long ago this was a traditional farm but the owners decided to shut their eyes and see what would happen if they allowed nature to take it all back through exults astounded even them the rate at which it all group back now is not only absorbs huge amounts of carbon dioxide but is teeming with wildlife species have come back here like the stork in that tree off in the distance that haven't been seen in the u.k. the hundreds of years before that it had been really you know far as the eye could see it was it was the typical monoculture of a british army and raised to travel the world to look at wildlife and we never once thought that we could get it back on our doorstep and this was where i mean really as much as anywhere we're not going to expect large swaths of being to turn into landscapes but i think this could be used within a mix of other. i don't know other solutions for giving space nature
3:30 am
but is it farming no crops but animals roaming free income for meat sales topped up by camping and large enthusiastic european subsidies it is absolutely impossible to imagine that this used to be a wheat field only 15 years ago but it just shows you what happens when you let nature take its course and it does speak very much to the entire philosophy of this place which is that farming obviously has very much been part of the problem as far as climate change is concerned but it can be part of the solution as well as roads have been here you know i've said tree nearby though there's some skepticism about this new model but like his neighbors david doesn't own all his land and has to make a profit to pay the rents so he says he still has an eye on the environment letting land go fallow letting the trees grow for the kingfishers to nest in but next to all this other crops see grows for sale the modern side of farming plaint so many.

mental problems we have all the bar diversity with species total dogs on the naughty gals here that you might find on rewarding saw as well but we produce loads of food as well rather than all the money being poured into a very small area the 4 of the farmland or the land of the country would be far better to use it to create that mixture so bought a verse and food and farming alongside it the problem is that some environmentalists say the earth may only have 60 harvests left at 60 years before the soil is damaged beyond repair consequently the net states maintains a flood of visitors from europe and beyond looking at what they've done as the sense of climate crisis grows and people look for radical solutions but british politics are changing even faster and what happens to this place is a model a grand experiment is not at all clear lawrence lee al-jazeera in sussex that's it for me the team in london back to martina lauren thank you very much indeed now
