12:03 pm
again more airstrikes in and around that area meant that the people who were trying to provide aid felt unsafe and so the also pulled out there's no indication at this stage when there will be another aid convoy if the red cross red crescent can even organize something in that space of time if you remember they were given permission to take in food for seventy thousand people they managed to get food in for about twenty thousand people and at the moment the population of the scooter is expected is thought to be somewhere in the region of four hundred thousand and the airstrikes have been continuing after the convoy went in so the twelfth day of what is meant to be a five or ceasefire that there was a straight continuing and we are told that the number of people killed overnight no reaches fifty five that number could go up because a number of buildings have been destroyed and there is always the possibility the bodies will be flown in the wreckage further north island near the border with turkey an african you've been able to actually get into that area along with
12:04 pm
turkish forces what did you experience there. well we saw that the they were able to take in medical aid in. some food aid to villages that have been taken over by the free syrian army. by the turkish military now we know that we are sort of our friend is under way we have had just in the last few hours that six tones in villages near our friends have been taken over by the free syrian army again backed by the turks and the turkish president everyone has said that he believes that the final assault in africa could come in the coming hours if not the coming days and certainly he expects that to be under control in a matter of days we know that the kurds the white p.g. have moved members of their militia from the fight against eisel towards our friend but faced with the numbers and the speed of this week that is underway they may well decide that it's best to keep their powder dry and fight another day and just melt away but for the moment they're saying that they will certainly stop the
12:05 pm
f.s.e. and the talks are moving in our friend we are hearing to that afternoon at the city center has been targeted in the last few hours with ongoing you know sorts which of course could only be carried out by the turkish military and i was there was alan fischer there live. near turkey's border with syria. donald trump says that a deal between the u.s. and north korea on its nuclear program is very much in the making the u.s. president tweeted that if completed the agreement would be quote a very good one for the world the white house says there will be no preconditions for a meeting between trump and kim jong un in may trump spoke with her child as leader xi jinping both agreed to continue with sanctions until north korea take steps to end its nuclear program more now from mike hanna who's in washington. it appeared that the u.s. had introduced new preconditions when the press secretary said that the meeting would not take place unless north korea provided strong guarantees and took strong
12:06 pm
steps to indicate the authenticity of its position however subsequently administration officials said that mr sanders was not introducing new preconditions they said she was indeed emphasizing the consequences should north korea continue or resume nuclear or missile testing or interfere with the joint military exercises taking place between the u.s. and south korea but this confusion underscores the developments that have occurred with president trump leaping headfirst into a potential face to face negotiation many expressing concern that negotiations such as these begin from the bottom up that the face to face meeting between leaders comes at the end of a process not at the very beginning in addition some experts point out the north koreans have had decades of negotiating deals with various states the trumpet
12:07 pm
ministration new to the game they going to be at a disadvantage in any negotiation with the north koreans should it take place from the very beginning. france's president emanuel mccrone has been holding talks with prime minister narendra modi on his first official visit to india fourteen agreements have been psion following the ninety minute long meeting the focus has been on trade security and fighting climate change india and france are also co-hosting the first summit of the international solar alliance an initiative launched on the sidelines of the paris climate conference in twenty fifteen. after twenty years of strategic partnership we are now opening up to a new era a new chapter of strengthening our strategic partnership with unprecedented alliances the pacific or the indian ocean cannot be places for hedging money powers we are building a strategic partnership in this respect this is also the purpose of our defense
12:08 pm
cooperation it was born a while ago and was also tested in difficult times but beyond political alternatives both in france and in india this proper ration in the defense field now has new significance. and how our cooperation in the defense sector is very deep and we can see no france as one of our more stressed of defense back in this country today gleeman of the logistic support among our armed forces as a golden step in the history of a close defense corporation have you on take up is a professor of national security and international relations at the narrow university he joins us now live via skype from new delhi good to have you with us professor emanuel says that he wants france to replace the u.k. as india's gateway to europe what will india make of that. oh i think that this is not a consequence of sorrow for what is happening in the evil eye system today
12:09 pm
especially with regard to reeling under but. it's on its own because the programs if you are or you partners with the united states or. you know you know if they don't get the degree let going to the united states and then it will france is now looking like the biggest. but it is unfair to market that india has in the in the euro underground but this is not just. defense partners are but is also civilian partnership and there's a all all connection that is going to be in the body lines there in the immediate or speedier and so i think this is it meeting of minds and i mean it is perhaps has been a good guess i'm to be able to and i did he's going to be ever since i'm nineteen seventies and eight so it is no surprise here it is good to see that this is the relationship be. far more robust if video activity has taken place to bid.
12:10 pm
or most just sixteen needed to go to war. because it was not being signed videos are a good part of this is expected all right let's let's take pick apart then that these these defense and civilian population in terms of military deals is france a natural patna for india and in terms of business micron says that he wants to see more of india's young talent in france and vice versa there will be a synergies between the two countries and their economies. i think there is i think but let's not make of the state that the mainstay all of their relationship between india and france today is in the concept of what extent is the last defined actually via the video and you have to be going to france in france and it was about eleven billion dollars. in our part of the debts that endeavor was divided from france was for certain point eight billion dollars and transistor then asking
12:11 pm
india to buy it or quote all those i could fix and they did it this quarter of monies that are already or they don't leave open so you're looking at the defense as the most important segment of this but i've heard talk of ship but clearly this is going beyond that they're going to start they could looking at the. bit it sort of lands you're looking at dead or ball. in iraq or india is being forced to buy the article orcus and start up more than isolation technology being given to you will be imported by india or france you're also looking at this by divine portion considered by the price of china and detroit got into the. china or. russia and i'm focused on coming together you are drawing from that he gives what india needs partners and friends need partner needs partners france it's probably the only country in the european country with
12:12 pm
a strong military presence even leading to an atlas of the portions and india needs those. as it is that the french going to get off and commit india so that is that going to stick and it's going to that is good that is already being signed because we do look at going to the switch we. will get gain access to each other's back as they get these professor reading has talked to many thanks indeed for being with us some letters on us the humanitarian consequences. of the war in yemen or the focus of an international conference in london that due to begin in the next thousands of people have been forced to flee across the red sea to djibouti in north africa but conditions in the refugee camp which refugee camps there are harsh with food supplies stretched to the limit of zero as one hundred other reports now from. its food distribution day or the mark as they come for yemeni refugees in the dusty port town of. the law mohammed of the

12:14 pm
to go where can we go we are forced to stay here yet the massive insecurity and shortage of some basic supplies in yemen is forcing many more refugees to cause the sea a something primal but a cut robbed of the come just three days ago from the city of ties which is under the control of both the fighters and again the yemen we fled from yemen because of war and hunger the hutu militias are also making life unbearable destroying homes of bullying and arresting people that will it's a disaster back in yemen nearly thirty five thousand people admitted the jenna's southwards across the bubble mandeb straight to djibouti since march two thousand and fifteen from the beginning to build you opened its doors to yemenis fleeing from the war the country has been uprooted from foreign investment in recent years due to it started you can look but the extreme poverty is still widespread. officials here say there's little else they can do for the refugees beyond giving them safety and also i'm one hundred oh i'll just. djibouti

12:19 pm
controlled main party newspaper there's not one mention of it the only related item is an article attacking the latest u.s. sanctions which it says are a further provocation possibly leading to war the problem in north korea is a propaganda machine that turns out a daily diet of common trees all the tacking the imperialist united states as the great war monger how do you now turn around and tell your people your leader is about to sit down and have a friendly chat with the leader of your arch enemy even harder it seems will be explaining that in preparation for this is sturrock summit you have put on hold work on your intercontinental ballistic missile this has been heralded as a great achievement of the socialist north korea the thing that will offer salvation from the very same imperialist americans it seems the north koreans need
12:20 pm
time to work out this complicated narrative in order to be able to explain it to its people looking even further ahead becomes the prospect perhaps of normalized relationship if this talks continue between north korea and the united states maybe even relations veering towards possibly the friendly or at least less hostile should that happen north korea it seems will have to perform some kind of propaganda contortionists act in order to explain it all luckily for the people in the propaganda department that prospect does seem a long way off. a former u.s. servicemen and three women that he took hostage at gunpoint at a home for war veterans have all been found dead the gunman's been identified as albert one the thirty six year old former army rifleman who served in afghanistan the women work for an organization that treats veterans for post-traumatic stress but asheville rifle association has filed
