years ago came met with chinese president xi jinping during a surprise visit to beijing chinese state media described the talks as a success with kim saying he is open to giving up his nuclear weapons china correspondent adrian brown reports from beijing for xi jinping this was a diplomatic triumph he told us president donald trump now the first world leader to beat kim jong un. chinese state controlled media waited until kim was back home before confirming what officials had tried so hard to deny just a day earlier. in the great hall of the people kim and his wife were welcomed like old friends appearance is important at times like this she opted for a business suit whereas kim stuck to the look favored by his father and grandfather the wives of both men were present during most of the photo opportunities. visits
like this are all about symbolism for she it served as a reminder that china still holds sway over its neighbor and intends to be at the center of diplomatic efforts to achieve a nuclear free korean peninsula. it's not clear what made him come to beijing or indeed what incentives he may have been offered to do so but china remains north korea's only real friend and ally so it's fair to assume the president xi jinping might want to know what kim's negotiating strategy will be during his upcoming summit with president trump. and kim's visit made it possible for china to know what north korea will be talking about to south korea and the united states in his discussions on the nuclearization china has also learned what north korea demands will be which will help china. it's a visit the would have seemed unimaginable just a few months ago where north korea was ignoring chinese appeals for restraint at an
exhibition showcasing some of china's technological achievements the message appeared to be we can help you with all of this if you behave. china's leaders are fond of metaphors at a lavish banquet she told his guest that in the beautiful season of spring everything comes to life kim replied i believe our meeting will yield abundant fruit that could mean making good on his commitment to give up nuclear weapons but the fruits of spring were apparent in the garden of the state guesthouse where friendship also seemed to blossom she accepted an invitation to visit north korea and told him he was welcome to visit china again the visitors left happy adrian brown al-jazeera beijing. south korea greeted news of the china summit with kathy novak has the reaction from so. the south korean government says it welcomes the visit by kim jong un to china and says that it hopes that the meeting between
kim and she jinping will help contribute to the overall goal of denuclearization and peace on the korean peninsula the spokesperson though added that the situation is evolving beyond their expectations and that they will have to monitor things as they go forward with all possibilities in mind there is an acknowledgement there i think of the surprise that was involved with this visit by kim jong un the first that he has taken as leader out of the country indeed the surprise that many felt when donald trump accepted the invitation to hold a meeting with the leader of north korea kim jong un in fact chinese state media reported that kim said he was willing to have that summit with donald trump and it was the first time that we had a direct confirmation from the north korean side of plans to go forward with that meeting there were indications that even the north koreans were surprised that
trump accepted that invitation so there are a lot of moving parts here now on the korean peninsula for the south korean side they are moving ahead with plans for an intercom summit on thursday there will be a high level meeting at the d.m.z. at the border that separates the two koreas and we are expecting china's top diplomat to be in seoul to brief the south korean government on the meeting between xi jinping and conjunction. u.s. president gave his reaction to the meeting on twitter he wrote received a message last night from xi jinping of china that's he's meeting with king john once very well and that kim looks forward to his meeting with mate this month trump surprised the world by agreeing to meet kim to place on time to be determined. there are a conflict in reports about who is in control of the northern syrian town of
telephone tech issues have been closing in on tara fatah off the taking the kurdish held enclave of affray in ten days ago turkish president roh chip type earlier on has said his forces will continue to move east as far as one beach to push out the y.p. g. fighters who he says are terrorist sinan costello has more now from istanbul turkish officials have told me that white beaches withdrawing from tel rafah but they underline that there is no military operation as an offering on the other hand why p.g. has denied all these statements that they are withdrawing from tel rafah to the town which they conquered from the syrian opposition groups in early two thousand and sixteen what we understand is that there is a deal between russia and turkey over the strategic town of northern aleppo but this time told her father is going to be more different compared to our friend because in often there were boots on the ground at the f.s.a.
and the turkish military but in tell her father it is more about diplomatic and political talks between two sides both russia and turkey also turkish foreign ministry undersecretary who will be in washington d.c. on march thirty to talk about violator all issues and also about the ongoing operations in northern syria so probably we are going to be hearing more detailed information within the coming days about the strategic town of northern alabama it is very strategic for all parties in syria because it is a strategic transition straight across syria so if you take tel referred under control you are controlling the east west route also the area between aleppo and bob. french basemen killed in last friday's terror attack on a supermarket in southern france has been honored in a ceremony led by president emmanuel knuckle it talent colonel are nobel transport

pressure to make sure people vote when we know what they results going to be that's actually a very important question despite the ready cooed around this whole you know election circus since the since the elections are not indeed independent because the electoral commission is in the pocket of the government since it's not fair because most of the other candidates in fact virtually all of the other opposition kind of this were banned or imprisoned and this is not free elections because again people were intimidated or oppressed and so on and so forth well it just turned out to be more of a referendum now for i'm going to be successful what you need is height or not and even if there's no terror now you give the impression as if it was hard to not because who's going to look at the numbers several days down the road it was very important for the president to show that there is a high turnout and hence there are great interests in his presidency

know what's what was the intelligence community were still with the mubarak era and the army has moved on to be with sisi i think that what i think that's a bit of a discussion of the past in a fight as two thousand and seventeen two thousand and eighteen is concerned president sisi or sealed marshal objects that the has c.c. has. you know got a real good to hold on power on the military on the various and shallowness of power of the various organs organism of power within the country the intelligence the army the economy and so on so forth and hence you could say no he is in total frontal he is i think egypt has moved from an authoritarian states to a tightly therion state today you don't just not have the right to express your opinion today you have to express your positive opinion of the ruler thanks very much. a four year old boy has been detained by israeli soldiers on suspicion of

millions of dollars a year traders not only sell shark fins but also to skin and bones they say the export ban and other protection measures have hit them hard they're going to die. since the government is banning all kinds of sharks the prices have dropped drastically we can now only sell locally and the prices we get for export a much higher. but new research scientists say law enforcement has been weak and more needs to be done to enforce the export ban and protect vulnerable shark species something the government wants to discuss at this week's symposium in jack after what we tried to do we will work together with minister of environment to put also tough measures on the business side because i think that's the easiest actually to to stop to make the fishermen understand it's going to take time. in order to protect fishing communities the government does not plan to impose a total ban on shark fishing but rather increase restrictions but with the month
