11:14 am
a disappointment what frustration what a shock what a tragedy what a catastrophe we're living today in the twenty first century i asked the family if they had a message for the delegates in geneva and the outside world. we are calling for peace but we will not concede we will not give up the sacrifices we have made with the blood of our martyrs the russian president vladimir putin announced mission accomplished in syria this week and the partial withdrawal of his troops but millions of refugees cannot think of returning to a country whose government is starving its own children to death. david kay to al-jazeera. still ahead here on al-jazeera. it's out of envies hand the u.k. prime minister defeats one the promises to make bricks occasions even more

11:19 am
and china are going to be very evident today for instance will be no joint statement after president xi jinping and president moon hold their bilateral talks on thursday afternoon that is a possible sign of a diplomatic impasse that remains that impasse of course is over the fact that south korea deployed an anti missile defense system early this year china is vehemently opposed to the system believing it poses a direct threat to china's domestic security so for the interests though of trying to prevent war on the korean peninsula these two leaders have come together in beijing but there is much that they do not have in common they are trying to find common ground they have for instance signed a memorandum of understanding to expand trade between the two countries which have a free trade pact at the moment but this is by and large symbolism because this memorandum is not regal really sort of legally binding so yes you know south korean
11:20 am
companies have been frozen out of china during the past year because of china's anger over those companies want to get back into the chinese market because of course china is south korea's most important trading partner and south korea is china certain most important trading partners so these two countries do need each other they have to get over their differences but china saying ok we're going to get agree to disagree but we haven't forgotten the fact that you have the missile system and we regard that as actually a threat to us and what about this kind of multi-pronged approach to this to the north korean problem and especially this russian delegation in north korea right now. well that's right there does seem to be an awful lot happening on various fronts right now when it comes to diplomacy we have this russian delegation from russia's defense ministry now in pyongyang of course just last week a senior united nations official made what was the first u.n.
11:21 am
visit to pyongyang in six years he left saying that the door was still a jar and now we have the south korean president here in beijing and of course while they are discussing trade nick it is quite clear that north korea is very much top of the agenda that is the dominant issue in the talks between president xi and president moon the problem is they have very different ideas as to how to you know ease tensions on the korean peninsula president xi jinping is pushing what he calls this freeze for freeze whereby north korea would halt the development of its advanced missile program in return for south korea and the united states calling a temporary halt to their military exercises now the united states says that's not on south korea appears to be going along with that china is also pushing diplomacy it still believes that diplomacy is the only way this crisis will be resolved it is it's against the idea of further sanctions i think you'll probably hear president
11:22 am
xi telling president moon that is also against the idea the call for china to cut off oil to north korea fitting that would exacerbate an already very dangerous situation interesting all right david thanks very much indeed agent brown reporting there from beijing to kenya now where dozens of women have told human rights investigators how they were gang raped during the recent presidential election campaigns some men also made complaints against attackers often wearing police uniforms kenya's inspector general of police says the allegations of propaganda and lack evidence catherine soy has more from nairobi. we're not identifying her for privacy reasons but she shows us police and hospital documents she's held since august she says she was raped by a man whose face is known to her at the height of kenya's recent election tension in a nairobi shanty town she's one of sixty eight women from the city and western kenya who spoke to human rights watch about their ordeal. one held
