this is where the hard part because of the extraordinary journey from polish that. braved ordinary joy to what we do high up there's no oxygen. just to experience life simple pleasures. risking it all in kurdistan but this time on al-jazeera. a potential roadblock to the meeting with donald trump and kim jong un the white house is now insisting on north korean concessions. hello i'm down jordan this is al jazeera from doha also coming up we're going to syrian village as people get enough basic necessities to last them a few weeks. this is still here. a show of
unity kenya's president and opposition leader put aside their differences to heal the country's political divisions. and taking out insurance on the future of color reefs our pioneering plan could help to save some of the world's most vulnerable marine life. u.s. president donald trump made accepted an invitation to meet north korea's leader but still plans to keep the pressure on pyongyang trump spoke with chinese president xi jinping on the phone both leaders agreed to continue sanctions until pyongyang take steps to denuclearize a trump agreed to meet kim jong un by may after an invitation was extended through a south korean envoy. they've made promises to denuclearize they've made promise just to stop nuclear and missile testing and they recognize that regular military exercises between the u.s.
and its allies south korea will continue the maximum pressure campaign we're not letting up we're not going to step back or make any changes to that we're going to continue in that effort and we're not going to have this meeting take place until we see concrete actions that match the words in the rhetoric of north korea only not to nations chief antone get tatted says he'll do whatever he can to help make the meeting happen the secretary general is encouraged by the announcement of an agreement between the united states and the democratic people's republic of korea to hold a summit meeting by may he commence the leadership and vision of all concerned and reiterate his support for all efforts towards the peaceful denuclearize ation of the korean peninsula in accordance with the relevant security council resolution i'll just it was my comment joins us live now from washington d.c. mike so what is the composition now because assumes to be some confusion of a pre-conditions for this meeting. well indeed yes there we heard from the press
secretary appearing to introduce new conditions by saying that there has to be tangible evidence of the north koreans good intentions as it were however administration officials have not been quick to clarify exactly what you are saying and they insist that the press secretary was not introducing any new precondition rather they say she was emphasizing the consequences should north korea back down on its assurances that there will be no more nuclear or missile testing and that there would be no interference with the military exercises that will be undertaken between the u.s. and south korea at the beginning of next month so making very clear here that there are no new preconditions that the situation is as it was before the press secretary made that particular statement but this underscores the confusion that has occurred with the sudden shift in u.s. diplomacy from a strategy of sanctions of threatening military action to face to face dialogue at
the leadership level this is a massive turnaround unprecedented and might just talk us through what kind of preparation needs to go into talks like these should this meeting go ahead. well there are layers and layers of discussion that need to be held there are experts on both sides that need to prepare briefing papers that need to prepare points of view that need to understand the full ramifications of what these type of deals would mean now the north koreans have been doing this for decades they've been negotiating deals in one form or another with many neighbors with the stages the u.s. and certainly other big blocks the trump administration is new to this they going to be learning as they go along so from the very start should negotiations take place the u.s. administration is going to be at something of a disadvantage just simply not having had the experience that their north korean
counterparts would have adding to this the fact that the unprecedented move of starting it at a leadership level rather than layers below which is the way these process would normally take and certainly many deeply concerned about president trump leaping feet first into something that they contend he does not fully understand mike thank you now the syrian rebel group army of islam has agreed to release fighters being held as prisoners in eastern guta syrian state t.v. showed thirteen fighters from the group formerly known as the al nusra front and their families starting to leave the rebel group says the decision was made after consulting the u.n. and international parties it's not clear if the deal will lead to a wider evacuation of fighters from other groups or civilians turkey's president reza typo and says his troops will soon enter the northern syrian town of a free. turkish military surrounded or free and after seizing control of the key

enough to carry it home but people are standing here waiting patiently for the aid to be handed out that is they say they waited long enough for the aid to arrive but they don't mind waiting that little bit longer. each box is all in sugar and flour and sanitary products enough to last the family three weeks one. hundred from an absence the f.s.a. came we are receiving aid it is enough for us it's enough six years we lived under the wire p.j. there was the aid material should be a little bit more because of the number of people here and the number of people in those families some of them received aid but one or two boxes are not enough for one family because they're all gathered in one house the turkish red crescent says it's doing what you can with what it has. up to we came to the area yesterday and assess the needs of the village residents who are prepared food and hygenic material for everyone. every so often the growing shakes with the sound of
artillery fire the big guns pointed so in support of the ongoing military operation the children told me they don't like the noise they may have grown up with the war but it's something they will never get used to. alan fischer al-jazeera their balut northern city of kenya's president and opposition leader have promised to begin a process of reconciliation they met for the first time since last year's disputed election which was followed by violence u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson who's visiting nairobi welcomed the move catherine sawyer reports. a surprise public show of unity that has caught many of their supporters off guard president hu hu king as an opposition leader. have agreed to by their political hatchet after two acrimonious presidential elections last year that led to their day. of many people swearing in as the people's president his

a large amount of weapons to saudi arabia is nothing new in fact the u.k. has been selling weapons and arms to the saudis for years and those sales are bought in billions of dollars worth of income to the british economy but whereas previously critics of these arms sales would focus on the saudis domestic policies in terms of not letting women to drive by having people in public in the general lack of freedom in the kingdom the brits would answer and say well you know it's not the fighter jets that are preventing saudi women from driving now however the criticism in the connection between british weapons arms sales to saudis and the infringements on human rights is much more direct and clear and that it is british workers that are being whose true bomb civilians in yemen for human rights watch as international say thousands of civilians have been killed as a result of the war in yemen which was announced launched and is being led by specifically the crown prince mohamed bin sideman it is the british weapons that are being used by the saudi air force that has turned yemen into the worst
humanitarian crisis today according to the united nations and that's why the head of the labor party germany or been had demanded from to resume to use this opportunity this visit of the crown prince to announce a halt in weapon sales to saudi arabia but tourism a has decided to do the exact opposite and signed this memorandum of understanding to sell even more weapons and the reason for that according to analysts obviously is that may find herself presiding over an economy that is in the west rape has been for many years and she's struggling to inject confidence in u.k. markets because of her inability to find a deal post brackets and to convince investors and to convince. the population of how opposed perks that britain would look like and therefore her critics are accusing her of selling out on the principles of freedom and democracy and essentially the ideals that britain holds dear only in favor of saudi money.
