9:06 pm
japanese prime minister shinzo who are both enthusiastic about the diplomatic breakthrough or surprise news of the planned meeting has been making headline news all over the world but not in north korea where purse is a major problem for the nation's propaganda machine mcbride has more from south korea's capital seoul. if you are in north korea right now and you do not have access to an outside source of information then you will not know about the historic summit in all six pages of the road long since this is the state 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
9:07 pm
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 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
9:08 pm
the propaganda department that prospect does seem a long way off. well any meeting between trump and kim jong un is likely to be awkward as the pair have traded insults for months he's a look at their most colorful exchanges back in may twenty forty after n.b.a. star dennis rodman a visit to north korea trump tweeted crazy dennis rodman is saying i want to go to north korea with him never discussed no interest nor space on earth i want to go fast forward three years and trampas president has repeatedly insulted the leader of the nation and pyongyang launched another missile in july last year trying to eat it does this guy have anything better to do with his life a month later he used a speech at the un to threaten foreign fury and described him as a little rocket man the united states has great strength and patients but if it is forced to defend itself or is our eyes we will have no choice but to turn only
9:09 pm
destroy north korea rocket. is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime or kim responded to trump's threat releasing a statement saying i will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged us dotard with fire which trump called him a mad men after kim's government called trump an old lunatic he hit back on twitter saying why would kim jong un insult me by calling me old when i would never call him short and fat oh well i try so hard to be his friend and maybe someday that will happen. we're joined now in the studio by donna dawson a psychologist specializing in behavior and personality thanks so much for coming in to talk to so that this is the kind of context of the face to face meeting with that kind of a background what kind of personalities. there's two personalities in the room how do you react together well they both have some interesting similarities they both have an authoritarian style they're used to getting their own way they used to
9:10 pm
being the center of attention there are some big differences of course but it's interesting that they both have that same kind of blustering rhetoric where they're the kind of upping the ante drama queen style in a way to test each other it's like two guns thing is the ok corral which one's going to back down first and i think there may be on kim's part a grudging respect for trump because he hasn't backed down and he's threatened a few serious things and perhaps this is why he's now making the approach for a talk but on the other hand he's very manipulative it's kim so it could well be that he's setting up something for himself that's not going to lead to where we think it's going to go and so it did you think that any of the background was convinced that they traded actually make any difference when it comes down to the meeting or do you think that any of it will have wounded either man in any way that might be detrimental to the meeting i don't think so i think it's all part of the kind of public display of politics in the bluster both of them are quite strong personalities none of them are weak on ego a lot of this rhetoric is meant to get
9:11 pm
a reaction so if you're going to get one back you have to take it in your stride i don't think what we're going to see that same bluster when they're face to face i think we're going to see a lot more diplomacy and i would imagine trump will speak more directly and i should think that kim will be more caged but they'll have a grudging respect for each other after the exchanges they've had with their now kind of on an equal plateau and you think they could end up like each other was a bit of a stretch that might be a bit of a stretch i think they they kind of like the fact that they can have a go at each other and they're both equally as important in the world and they both have to get. created a problem that only the two of them can solve that's very good for their but their joint egos and with these kind of personalities what's the biggest danger for the talks would you think would end up what could make them go wrong well i think because trump shoots from the hip and often follows his gut instinct and can be quite unpredictable. you know he can turn on a dime if he thinks that it warrants it it may well be that something is said that
9:12 pm
gets his goat up but he's not able to restrain himself that's the only fear i have i think kim is much more closed off and places cards closer to his chest more likely to stay in control than mr trump and so if you were advising the kind of if you were with the people talking to either side and rising them how to behave in these talks what would you say to them well i think that will get him being inscrutable and very far eastern in terms of what he's all about and what he's prepared to offer i think first of all that you know don't take anything superficially i think keep you calm take a deep breath before you say anything back take it in but more over it before you reply maybe not shooting from the hip is the one thing they could advise trying to do in this instance that would benefit him the most thunderous and thank you very much indeed cordially will include. your sexual state rex tillerson has had to cancel events on the second day of his visit to kenya due to illness a spokesperson for tennis and said he was feeling unwell after working on major
9:13 pm
issues back in the us with north korea to listen is four days into his first different arctic trip to africa where he's visited ethiopia djibouti and kenya his shuttle to go on to nigeria and chad nearly thirty five thousand refugees have sailed across the street to djibouti to skate the war in yemen but conditions in the refugee camps there are harsh with food supplies stretched to the limit report on a walk my dog has more. its food distribution day at the markets you come for your many refugees in the dusty poor tom of. mohammed of the law has just picked his family's food a location for the month he came here two years ago when a missile hit and destroyed his house in ha ha self in the yemen now a mother had a hand look at the shooting that i say have given us there won't be enough for my family for even five days a situation is really bad apart from the legal regimes people here also complain of
9:14 pm
conditions of the come. the sweltering heat and ferocious sun systems hardly been many away this is a place where many don't want to stay for long at one point this camp was home to more than six thousand refugees today one thousand eight hundred one lived here most of them have either one top of the town or to the capital djibouti others harbor a country yemen preflighting the un something terrible was on to life in this can. also have chosen to stay see the option of a shared choice we have nowhere else 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 are some but are cut robbed of the come just three days ago from the city of thais which is under the control of both the fighters and again the human we fled from yemen because of war and hunger the hutu militias are also making life unbearable destroying homes of bullying and arresting
9:15 pm
people who will it's a disaster back in yemen. nearly thirty five thousand people admitted the jenna's softwoods across the bubble man group straight to djibouti since march two thousand and fifteen from the beginning to open its doors to yemenis fleeing from the wall the country has been admitted for an embarrassment to do. but the extreme properties to widespread. officials here say there is little else they can do for the refugees beyond giving them safety. djibouti the u.k. home secretary says the russian spies and his daughter remain in a critical but stable condition after they were poisoned with a nerve agent u.k. ministers have been holding an emergency security meeting to discuss the latest police and intelligence reports on two hundred fifty counterterrorism police are involved in investigation and more than two hundred witnesses have been identified
9:16 pm
of course want to go here go is live outside the cabinet office first in one session what's been discussed at that meeting. really it's not what unity for all branches namely the intelligence officials as well as senior cabinet ministers and law enforcement security officials to be able to discuss on the evidence which they already have collected and a plan as to how to move forward with this but of course also they are remaining quite tight lipped about the possibilities of this really the main situation being that they need to sort of comb through all the evidence as much as possible and as the home secretary of a rod said they have managed to collect already quite a bit of information in this fast moving investigation. this is a serious substantial investigation there are over two hundred fifty counterterrorism police from eight out of all eleven counterterrorism units
9:17 pm
involved there's over two hundred witnesses involved and there's over two hundred forty pieces of evidence so we need to give the police and all the investigative parts around them the space to get on with that so what are the implications in terms of relations with russia. well the implication has been there's been some some subtle finger pointing towards moscow but of course really as politicians have been saying that they really have to examine everything very carefully before they can actually state who is behind this as well it's also very important to note that while they are working towards that it all this sort of murmurings that there have been two wars moscow has caused tension diplomatically between russia and the u.k. as well but also it's not just a case of whether it is a state sponsored killing oh all deaths behind it but also whether there could be
9:18 pm
a work of perhaps some criminal organizations which are potentially responsible for this sort of thing but really the evidence really has to be very finely there has to be some very careful consideration part that will be to do with exactly pinpointing the nature of the and the actual nerve agent itself that's can being conducted currently at a military facility which is near salt spray as well scientists that will be able to tell not just what the nerve agent is but also perhaps what laboratory which the partridge was manufactured to as well and that will be extremely telling into how into who was behind this so thank you very much indeed. russian political activist andres dhoni coffer joins me now in the studio thanks very much for coming in to talk to us so as it is so new was pointing out that the government has been at pains to not point the finger directly at russia but since the death of it you think oh clearly there's parallels be made whether it's in the
9:19 pm
press or ours where what has enough been done really to protect people living in this country who've who are from russian who might be an iraq i'm not sure about this because. it's a case was twelve years ago all we thought that it's just formula one. time things but as we know now during the eighteen years since regime. persecuted traitors which the people who are against. against putin regime who are in the position regime think that we are three to traitors. k.g.b. agent putin thinks that he must be destroyed so of course now these. people like me who are running the political asylum in the u.k. we are very afraid what government will do to protect us and what do you want the government to do more to protect you i think the needs more careful look
9:20 pm
for the russians who are who has connections with the russians is remove the must look ok for you to russian embassy well it's no. where from where the. poison came to the u.k. for the answer to this question ok where do you think you know it's a diplomatic forced russian diplomatic course do you know about its kind of drugs in argentina in the when a lot of kilograms of cocaine were found in the embassy school russian ok so you are the only thing is that i suppose what one would be reset is that in this case trip i was exchanged in a white shop do you spy swap deal eight years ago now so had they wanted to do something to him it is quite a long time to wait what do you make of that i think is another. another point to tell people to be afraid and it's a message from russian authorities that all the
9:21 pm
guys all the russians who will be in a position or who are in the position could be in danger i mean memory now in the redo of. pointed out that script out preferably wasn't out there. in opposition yeah can we say well this name for this series when he was poisoned could be leaving their nation perhaps rather than him being targeted. because of his. connection with the opposition could there be some other reason as i know he really didn't have any connections with the position we didn't know or about him at all. if you think that he falls into the traitor category rather than the opposition and i mean here it's not he was poisoned not about. his thoughts about it was it because i don't know his thoughts about it but he was a traitor as a thinks so and as i said before all traitors must be destroyed so it's
9:22 pm
difficult to. get involved in an organized killing i mean what obviously russia has said officially it said that they have an end in to do with this so. if i don't make that if you look for all the cases for the people who were killed before all all the time russia says it's not us but so we know that the ways are going to them when i heard about this case. i don't have i didn't have any other ideas i just said to my friends it's russian regime it's putin send killers to hear what was your thought that the location was significant storm is right next to it happened in soviet union it wasn't down the can doesn't matter like. going up like this i don't think it's matter what it is a strong message is as long as the old people shut up your mouth and you will leave if you against you will die. in you're context when you get are you asking the
9:23 pm
government specifically for some kind of measure to protect you. the moment where i'm a leader speak up we are now preparing a letter to the government to resume with different questions and one of the main questions will be how could governments protect us people who was. political asylum in the kitty thank you very much indeed for joining us andreas you know thank you you thank. the philippines foreign minister has hit back at the u.n. human rights chief is suggesting that president roediger deter to needs psychiatric help he called the comments irresponsible and disrespectful mean all human rights groups in the philippines have criticised detective for giving additional powers to police a new law gives senior officers the power to compel individuals to provide evidence activists are concerned it will lead to extra judicial killings and arbitrary arrests it's believed more than four thousand people have died at the hands of

salama is in a fourth year studying civil engineering and business she says she dreams of a career in the field and in academia but is all too aware of the realities of the palestinian job market i think i have like a good chance but not the best not because of my academics or my g.p.a. it's because of the type of the need or nature of the. work you in the environment the situation is bad so it reflects a wide a premium that's been put on female education in palestinian society women sixty two percent of the current students are women a problem for them is what happens when they graduate. palestinian women are some of the region's best educated thirteen percent have a university degree compared to nine percent of men but only nineteen percent of women are in or seeking work that compares to twenty five percent in the middle east in north africa and fifty one percent in the world as a whole palestinian society is certainly patriarchal women often face pressure to marry young and stay at home there's also political and cultural pressure in favor
9:26 pm
of having large families the palestinian fertility rate is among the region's highest but economists some here are both misses the critical difference from the rest of the region is the impact of the israeli occupation in the palestinian context israel has worked. very hard since nine hundred sixty seven on undermining the productive capacity of the economy that is undermining agriculture and long acting these are the sectors that employ women agriculture has long been a mainstay of female employment especially here in the village of the about loot where the women say it's rare to spot a man in the fields but these days it's just as red or find a woman under forty five because they might think that other jobs are better it's easier to sit at the desk than work the land we've lost lands to confiscation and we've lost our mountains to settlements it is somehow six daughters she says education has been crucial to their upbringing but the two who have already graduated university of both unemployed are
