programme. president trump tweeted, "perhaps china will put a heavy move on north korea and end this nonsense once and for all." president trump has already met president xi of china, and they meet again this week in germany at the 620 summit — with one man on their mind: kim jong—un — exulting in the achievement of his military sinensis, impervious to threats, —— in the achievement of his military scientists, impervious to threats, unresponsive to offers of negotiation, determined to preserve his own power. earlier this year, when the possibility was raised of north korea having a missile capable of hitting the us, president trump tweeted, "it won't happen." the question, though, is even louder now — how can he stop it? i think we've got beyond the stage where we can afford to just let this run any further. quite possibly we are only months away from kim jong—un achieving his objective. meanwhile, celebrations tonight in pyongyang. there is little that washington, beijing, seoul or anywhere else can do about it. stephen evans, bbc news, south korea. we can speak now to

correspondent, and here‘s what to look out for in 2017. china will once again be heading for the moon. after the success of their robotic lander in 2013, they‘ve decided it‘s time to go back. this time, though, their rover is going to grab some moon rock and then bring it back to earth. this sample return mission could help china to lead the way in lunar mining. in the united states, the sun will put on a spectacular display. in august, from the west coast to the east, a total solar eclipse will be visible, moving across the whole of the united states. it will be visible to an estimated 12 million people. so fingers crossed for clear skies. we‘re gonna cancel billions in payments to the united nations climate change programmes. and in 2017, all eyes will be on donald trump and global warming. he once tweeted that climate change was ‘a hoax‘, and during the election, he said he‘d pull out of the paris climate deal. no—one yet knows what he‘ll do. while he‘s recently met with climate campaigner al gore, he‘s also just appointed several key cabinet members who‘ve ex

with china and other big trading nations. britain will have to renegotiate that. because once it comes out of the eu, then what do you do you? do you go to china and say, we want the same with the european union and now call it the united kingdom instead of the eu, he may or may not do it. but if they say, let's renegotiate, then british companies would lose their markets. so britain is the bigger loserfrom that. but the european union is also a loser. it's not a threat. the other threat that britain could become a tax haven. it would be absurd to think they european union will agree to free—trade, with a nation that is a tax haven with the purpose of drawing tax away from it. so the big companies coming to britain than you can export to the european union. it's a nonstarter. let yet another layer of complexity. it all starts to tomorrow. hopefully we can have you back with your perspective. hopefully i can say i was wrong. we shall see. thanks for joining us. a royal marine — who was sent to prison for killing an injured taliban fighter in afghanistan — has been told he will be
