korea doesn't need nuclear weapons to devastate its southern neighbor seoul is just fifty kilometers from the border within easy reach of conventional weapons the back and forth may be a negotiating tactic trump says he isn't looking for a war that being said i really believe that it makes sense for north korea to come to the table and to make a deal that's good for the people of north korea and the people of the world trump is also looking for a deal with his allies he has not been subtle about his economic interest and a united front against north korea we make the greatest military equipment in the world whether it's planes whether it's missiles no matter what it is we have the greatest military equipment in the world and south korea will be ordering billions of dollars of that equipment which frankly for them makes a lot of sense and for us it means jobs it means we do sing our trade deficit with

south korea regional defense for american jobs he said much the same while in japan over the weekend nextel move on to china a much trickier partner. take is following trump's visit and joins us now from boston the u.s. president there is said in his visit to south korea that he will be working with south korea and using all available to tools short of military action is now taking a softer line with respect to north korea. well terry he definitely sounded very different than he did just a few months ago if you look back and if you remember that was bellicose remarks of . fury fire and fury and locked and loaded and those remarks actually made the south korea's president moved somewhat angry at the time saying
2:05 pm
that it can't be that some third party pushes his country closer to a military confrontation with north korea and he said that there shouldn't be any military action taken or considered without the consent of north korea and so today we didn't hear any of that harsh rhetoric from from donald trump now i wouldn't say it's a policy reversal they still agreed that they want to exert maximum pressure on north korea and that's something that president from had been pushing for the entire time but it seems that at least they were a bit more considerate of each other's needs and positions terry ok with donald trump now taking it easy from the level of. leaders that mean that washington and seoul on the same page in dealing with the north. but i think at least they took some steps to find towards each other to find common
2:06 pm
ground it was president moon who said that they would be enhancing military cooperation for example and he it was also him was said how important it was to maximize pressure on north korea and as i said that's of course something that president trump wanted so i think overall they tried to display a unity in their positions and i think that's exactly what president trump had been looking for starting this whole asia trip that he wanted to align the u.s. is key allies namely japan and south korea with u.s. policies on north korea and tonight it looks like that he's achieved that terry. to ordinary people in south korea think of donald trump well people here have very mixed feeling when it comes to this we heard before
2:07 pm
there were protesters against with signs reading no trump no war but that's only half of the picture because there were also protesters here. rallying for trump and welcoming trump so there are people who are saying we need to be tough on north korea and trump is exactly the right person for that and on the other hand there are people who who are saying that this kind of rhetoric is just making the situation more tense and more dangerous for south korea terry. heartache there in seoul south korea thank you. now let's take a look at some other stories making news around the world afghan security forces have overpowered attackers who stormed a private television station in the capital kabul witnesses say at least three men including a suicide bomber entered the building after an explosion at least two people were killed and islamic state group has claimed responsibility for the attack without

seventeen was masterminded by blagojevich up known as lenin the communist party leader began preparing for revolution during his years in exile in western europe eventually became the leader of the communist state that grew into the soviet union . limits vision of a classless society soon gave way to a totalitarian state. a century ago and what is the legacy of the communist dream moscow correspondent yuri rachet it was that revolution square where a communist rally for the anniversary is take. hi yuri a sea of dress for the occasion how important is this anniversary for twenty first century russians. well it used to be very important today in the past but as there are many reasons terry is this universe three and a grocer makes it very difficult for today's russians sure since all their pollution was a radical upheaval and our people something russians don't want nowadays neither
2:10 pm
their president was there putin no ordinary citizens want it in this country since ninety seventeen each generation of russians has lived as though it is make up people first of the boss of evolution we are talking about now then a role two or two and finally the collapse of the soviet union so for ordinary people for russians today stability is the most important issue in their life so there's a quite a bit of ambivalence surrounding celebrations it sounds like what about the government are they supporting these celebrations surrounding the october revolution. not really the message from let me putin and to the kremlin on the anniversary has been a muted condemnation of evolution as a political tool military parade has made its way across threats to be had today earlier and that made sense given that the anniversary of the bolshevik revolution was one of the most significant events last century only that parade was in
