3:07 pm
the korean peninsula free of nuclear weapons is a very delicate issue moscow maintains that the interests of all sides must be respected. so that said it all ended with inviting russia so let's see whether the north korean leader will accept the invitation for now we're heading back to the airport in the russian foreign minister's motorcade. franco right side. residence and pyongyang. some developing news now out of the u.n. . purity council is gathering in new york to the sky. they kuwait proposed calls for an international force to be deployed to the area to help protect palestinians however the u.s. has already voted to veto the resolution thousands of palestinians have been
3:08 pm

3:09 pm
fifteen injuries in the right leg that is already snipers continue to target the palestinians with live i mean it's you know and i do see at that time i think are ready to take every three that arrives thousands of palestinians continue to participate in the great march of return for more than ten weeks now the palestinians are holding one message to the world that they have the right to demand and they have to right to protest well we also spoke to a member of the red cross only girls a crisis he claims the humanitarian situation there is devastating. the hospital simply cannot grasp or deal with a bigger influx of violence. if we see the same amount of wounded arriving in your speed doors as what we saw on the fourteenth of may and would simply have hundreds of patients leading to death in the parking lot.
3:10 pm
was. tanzan have already lost some of their limbs and became amputees and follows an arms have been wounded including several thousands by live ammunition that's something that is overwhelming for any help system in the world the accelerated deterioration of the humanitarian situation has affected all speed tours as i think leave it all clean frustrate troops so the capacity of the system to cope with disagree with you inflicts is extremely limited and this is why the a c r c he says well. its capacity to whence where we've as a medical needs you're in gaza. was. you know when you are you know most people are legs of palestinian red cross and must be done in thirty minutes eighty were been wounded arrive when you are in

3:12 pm
move which saw him lose a no confidence vote in parliament it was followed by the rival socialist party leader who now in fact gets the job with his slim parliamentary majority the ice that premier admitted his the featuring day two of debates earlier this friday. a lobbyist though they look at that from what we all know the no confidence motion is likely to go through which means mr petro sanchez will be the new prime minister and i would like to be the first to congratulate him it will be this chamber that will make the decision and it is up to all of us to abide by the mandate of the popular sovereignty represented here i believe that today we're opening a new page in the history of our democracy and we will now start reading the first paragraph but i can tell you without hesitation that we in the new government will put the interests of the spanish people above all else socialist party made a predator santy it is now spain's new prime minister that followed a vote of confidence which he called a week ago in response to

a high court ruling which sentenced several leading. figures in marianna. people's party to have to jail sentences following a long running corruption scandal including the party's former treasurer it looked like a long shot at first because centuries only commands eighty four seats out of a three hundred fifty member chamber however one by one crucially opposition. parties including social life would rival spa day most and fractious regional parties in catalonia and the basque country added up their support and reached the crucial tally of one hundred eighteen votes with just hundred sixty nine in against and that was when marianna finally realized that the game was up. yeah pedro sanchez is in prime minister to be sworn in over the weekend he's
3:14 pm
a forty six year old former economics professor and current leader of the socialist party now he has been a thorn in the former prime minister aside for some time in twenty sixteen when parliament voted on approving a new cabinet sanchez refused to give his backing although the up move meant he was forced to step aside the socialist party leader which led to a nine month political deadlock fast forward twenty seventeenth centuries then made a shock reappearance after winning back his position but now despite receiving large support from smaller opposition parties he still likely to face some major challenges the liberal party citizens is one they've been calling for another election and seem to be the only major party backing the ousted prime minister while sanchez will also of course have to deal with the issue of cattle on independence and the separatist push in the region since last year's referendum now we spoke to our hundred spanish history lecturer who believes the catalans could take. the does have eighty five m.
3:15 pm
peers there's a very very. small number of. parliaments and that does a limitation in itself so it is going to be a very very limited government in that respect there's no doubt that the issue in catalonia is going to be the one of the hot potato of spanish politics in the coming years and for this government as well centive has been saying that he's happy to target and have a conversation with the newcastle and president but on the other hand he said that he was going to have that conversation within the framework within the rearm of the spanish constitution so it's an opportunity for the prime the pendants party on the other hand centive doesn't seem to be very happy to talk. beyond the constitution. elsewhere in europe italy is also going through a political shake up with just seppi conti who's never held political office before

two allies this is very unfortunate it is unfortunate because it will. cause a lot of damage to our stephen elop medium industry it is unfortunate because this is further weakening the transatlantic relations even union wanted to avoid this situation onto the new duties e.u. countries will have to pay as much as twenty five percent more if they want to see their metal products on the american market and that could spell trouble from manufacturers there is the european union is currently the world's second largest steel producer after china europe has taken its concerns to the legal might of the world trade organization to mediate and resolve any disputes with washington after the new charter of swearin once the european commission said it may now look to russia. i do think that we have to reconnect if i'm not i'm not very happy about the state of all relations so we have. to come back to i wouldn't say in
3:18 pm
normal relation with washer but there are so many areas so many domains look forget the. differences on the streets are but does. russia. has to be poor commitment or critias former prime minister is a lot cooler much things unilateral trade decisions don't benefit any of the countries involved he was speaking to me earlier and stressed that donald trump can negotiate his way out of potential trade war habilis. i believe that move for a doesn't have any real basis because if you're looking on the job see in the u.s. steel industry coming from two thousand year two thousand we shaved incline even during the period between two thousand and two and two thousand prevent george w. bush in polls also stronger still doesn't make any results and so this study of us really hurt much more much import that industry of your us economy and didn't

3:22 pm
a dozen groups and organizations who signed the letter saying that this summit did not represent them we call for a real dialogue focused on the aspirations of libyan society in its aspects nevertheless pundit's macron hailed it as a breakthrough after all getting all these people together under the same roof was an achievement not so much the main act as were there in july last year at this same summit also hosted by macro. the courage that is yours today by being here and by agreeing to this joint declaration is historic is to take your risk despite things that could have been against despite the actions of others to work towards a process of national reconciliation and long term peace. and nothing changed but maintaining the brand takes effort macro and really trying. the
