sports with the premier league title already gone manchester united close in on the english f.a. cup tie leading in the semifinal with just a few minutes remaining i'll have the latest coming up. bill korea's announcement that it will immediately stop all nuclear and missile tests has been welcomed by western leaders u.s. president donald trump described kim jong un's pledges very good news while european leaders say it's a good first step but some of being more cautious especially japan kathy novak reports from seoul. north korea regularly tested increasingly threatening ballistic missiles last year including weapons that could have the range to hit the united states in september it conducted its most powerful nuclear bomb test now north korea says those tests are over thirty. should cheer
9:03 pm
pictures we will discontinue nuclear testing an intercontinental ballistic rocket test firing from april twenty fifth. the northern new contests conduct d p r k one also be dismantled to transparently the discontinuance of the new click testing it's welcome news for the u.s. president who's planning to meet north korea's leader kim jong un within weeks donald trump tweeted north korea has agreed to suspend all nuclear tests and close up a major test site this is very good news for north korea and the world big progress look forward to our summit state media says kim jong un made the announcement as he chaired a meeting of the workers' party central committee a gathering to rubberstamp the supreme leader's decisions it was at a similar meeting five years ago that kim unveiled his signature policy to prioritize the development of nuclear weapons and the economy the message from the leader now is that weapons program development is complete and the focus will shift
9:04 pm
to the economy currently under pressure from a u.s. led sanctions campaign. would you call kim jong un kyra five that now that the t.p.r. case position as a wallflower for politico ideological and military power has been successfully established it is the strategic line of the workers' party to concentrate all efforts of the whole party and country on the socialist economic construction kim is apparently seeking to cement his position on the world stage following his meeting in beijing last month with china's president xi jinping talks with cia director mike pompei o in pyongyang and ahead of a historic summit with south korea's president monday and on friday south korea welcomed the announcement calling north korea's decision meaningful progress for the denuclearization of the korean peninsula the president's office said it will contribute to creating a positive environment for the success of the upcoming intercourse rian and u.s.
9:05 pm
north korea summits. china has also welcomed the announcement while japan's prime minister was more cautious person of the thought of north korea's announcement is forward motion that i'd like to welcome but what's important is that this motion leads to complete verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of north korea's nuclear and missile programs north korea's promise to stop weapons testing didn't go that far it pledged to never use nuclear weapons unless there are nuclear threats and you can hear provocations against it cathy know that al-jazeera seoul. well diplomacy between the united states and north korea has gone through cycles of hope and disappointment before with pyongyang often renee getting in two thousand and seven north korea agreed to shut its main nuclear reactor in return for aid young and signed an agreement to dismantle its nuclear weapons facilities but missed the deadline in two thousand and eight the government demolished a cooling tower a symbol of its commitment to ending its nuclear program but two months later it
9:06 pm
refused to allow international observers to visit suspected nuclear facilities the u.s. agreed to send food aid in two thousand and twelve after pyongyang said it would freeze the launching of long range missiles but that agreement ended when long range rockets were launched in early two thousand and thirteen so let's get more now on the view from washington with alan fischer and as we are i suppose this decision by pyongyang is a positive first step but there are no guarantees that there will be necessarily an agreement that they stick to at the end of it. you're absolutely right which is you've just listed why the united states isn't getting overly excited by this they've been in the position before where they have offered north korea talks they have offered food aid they have offered economic help the north koreans have made concessions before those talks they've even signed deals and then they have reneged so no one is getting carried away with the offer that's coming out of your own yang
9:07 pm
it's also interesting to note that the statement from north korea came just twenty four hours forty eight hours after donald trump when meeting with the japanese president at his florida retreat was seeing if this summit doesn't look as if it's going to produce anything i want gore and if i'm in the summer and we don't think we're going to get anything out of it and it's not going the right way then i will and donald trump's words respectfully leave the room so he was putting pressure on the north koreans before he's even started the idea of a summit and certainly we know some preparation has been made for the summer but donald trump wants to make sure that he's going to get something out of it rather than just going and then being up looking like other american leaders in the past by promising things thinking they're going to deliver and then nothing happens so alan tell us what do we know about plans being made for that meeting is there also a sense of nervousness about what might happen when and can actually in
9:08 pm
a room together if it comes to that. well you know there are people who are already talking about a nobel peace prize for donald trump if he manages to succeed in having the korean peninsula the new killer ice and many people think that it's because of the pressure that he is put on from almost the far stay in office and you remember goes back to the time when he started calling the north korean leader little rocket man and promising that there would be fire and fury of north korea ever attacked any u.s. territories when there was the threat towards which seems like ages ago no but probably was less than a year ago so all of these things will tend to to the idea of a summit we know that mike palm piro who is the cia director he was in pyongyang over the christian easter weekend that was laying the groundwork for the summit even though the administration continues to insist that that was an intelligence
9:09 pm
visit rather than a diplomacy visit that's because mike pompeo is currently nominated to be the next u.s. secretary of state but that hasn't been confirmed yet so he can't get ahead of himself so part of the groundwork has been laid the are talking about five possible venues for this somewhere in europe is one of them possibly on a u.s. warship perhaps in the area between north and south korea where the meeting between the two countries will happen very soon and also perhaps even an especially arranged location in the demilitarized zone the fact is they're not got down to the basic details of that but what donald trump wants to make sure is that when he walks so he walks so with something that gives him concrete relief after all the pressure that he has put on north korea over the last eighteen months or so thank you very much from washington alan fischer. north korea calls its governing ideology at g.
9:10 pm
do you check excuse me all self-reliance that's the ideology of the country's nuclear program has been a crucial part of that and diplomatic editor james bay has given rare access to capital pyongyang and has more now on this philosophy of self-reliance. the. car welcome to pyongyang certainly the cleanest most orderly and probably the most controlled place i've ever visited. rush hour in the city yet the traffic is like the roads a quiet although all of them a little comfy. no doubt this extremely hard working society everyone striving for the good of the state this is how workers are sent into. revolutionary slogans flags and drums. in this city the portraits in the statues

9:12 pm
the nuclear weapons of course yes we made the nuclear weapons bear an effort there and technique is the main point of that to take. for years north koreans have been told the nuclear program is something that will keep their country strong and that the us is their mortal enemy both the messages that will now need modification as talks approach under some of the stiffest international sanctions ever imposed north koreans say jew check or self-reliance is the answer. in the subway trains inherited from east germany a growing old a handful of new carriages were produced in north korea we were told this seat was designed by kim jong un himself. it seems the leader takes a direct interest in many areas of national life he made a visit to the main shoe factory at the plant producing the korean national dish

9:17 pm
now india's government has approved the death penalty for people convicted of raping children under the age of twelve after widespread outrage over a number of recent attacks the order was approved by prime minister narendra modi's cabinet that requires parliamentary approval within six months to become law in the meantime suspects can be prosecuted under the order there have been widespread protests in india following a number of high profile rape cases including the killing of an eight year old girl in kashmir and another case involving a ruling party politician joining us now via skype from new delhi is care tesing she is a lawyer and women's rights activist thank you very much for speaking to us so then what is the conviction rate rate in child rape cases in. it's abysmally low or about eighteen one two percent according to official
9:18 pm
statistics. and so then does that mean that this death penalty is going to make much of a difference to the situation there is it going to act as any sort of detachment. i don't think so. studies have shown that bit penalty has an impact in the all experience is that it doesn't act at all don't we had against death benders a lot of the women's organizations and groups are and in any key is the two particular cases that you're talking about are sought to be her. to be covered up by this kind of. introduction of the law or the government in fact she did or did not act according to the law there was a complete breakdown in one case it was a b.g.p. emily who was responsible and instead of registering our livestream the giftie
9:19 pm
person the police actually picked up hawk bother and killed doom in custody in the other teasing me it was again we did the deep one she'll do it and in fact it was by john by because of her human proudly that he says what it is against them so in what these cases there was a complete breakdown of law and order it wasn't is it just because the death penalty didn't exist that there was this big down i think persons in india and peculiarly in believing in when people think that they can act with impunity that they will not get punished and therefore it is they need the certainty of punishment. rather than the severity of it that in the country i think
9:20 pm
that their investigation is not carried on from quickly please don't collect likely pieces of evidence in cases and then the cases that are on important so on so the serb forces which are just sponsored will fall. you should not bring up marks on o. that you've referenced said the two most recent high profile cases one of course involving the eight year old girl and the other where the accused was a member of the j.p. party even though despite what you say could this does this not at least show if anything symbolically that the government is trying to do more that they will take this more seriously and that perhaps more will now be done following on from this move to protect women and even change attitudes. i didn't because there was a grid out against the because people were absolutely horrified in
9:21 pm
india and elsewhere that this was happening that the government brought about this law in such a hurry the government has not been acting to not and in fact it should put its house in order and to put the criminal justice system in order so that we have. of crimes and that's to get it properly that influential people don't get all we that. bribes do not get paid to. stop investigations that evidence is collected that finally the trial is going to be on and you know we move in a high debate to output society so it's not that simple by just awarding death penalty you're not going to stop the crime you have to be really willing to also create awareness about if you're willing to take along the men then the boy is
9:22 pm
. along with you or to shore them. to sensitize them to remove his rights to sensitize them to the fact that this is a crime against one of the worst crimes against women and girls so thank you very much for shedding more light on it for us appreciate it care she's saying a lawyer and a women's rights activist joining us that. on now to armenia where police say they've arrested more than seventy people including two suspected of making bombs as anti-government demonstrations in the former soviet republic and a second week thousands of protesters are calling for you prime minister such as the un to step down on happy at what they see is a power grab by the former president and change the political system to give himself more power. at least one person has died in violence between security forces and protesters in madagascar the demonstrators were rallying in the capital
9:23 pm
antananarivo against new electoral laws which the opposition say meant to stop a candidate from running for president the city's hospital says at least sixteen more people have been injured in the violence so doing it joining us now on skype from madagascar's capital is journalist affair be en rafi rini rena thank you very much for taking the time to speak to us and i start by asking you about the situation that we've been reporting on these clashes between supporters of the opposition protesters and police is this is it karma now. yes it is. the movement is still on. because i start to stick around to shows for persones think you do need two children who died. at the hospital nearby at the front of the movement and the. i mean the
9:24 pm
government is currently at the pronto. mrs and have done so which is the she. and the movement spokesman say that. accepts corruption trevon government anymore and their wants to move modern to the magic chad recruit in this nation and the final objective is clear for them which is the reason. the president here is an army. when you say. from the accused that tomorrow at ten o'clock. there are good you will be held at the same place and to the right and the monday movement we'll continue even though if you show programs that it's not on until now and so the trigger or the spark for these demonstrations seems to have been the electoral or in a feeling by the opposition that it has an unfair impact on their candidate
9:25 pm
or their candidates in general is a you saying that it's gone well beyond that now that even if the government was to make concessions on that issue they want nothing less than the resignation of the president. from no what is public it is the resignation but in the sas it is the contestation of the electoral low which was voted. corruption within the parliamentary members from the project. so i'm i think there is still another kind of a request but they don't say however i feel they want to the reason those first and then after that we'll maybe i don't know what to be deciduous i'm after you case it works because it made it a scary story there's never been a president who resigned so you get it happened i don't know what they're going to do after if they. are or i do not.

9:42 pm
example have been nelson mandela i we you know so we've we're very careful of who we pick and really that we picked some of the bravest and most courageous people in the world who are also iconic and have a huge following particularly amongst young people as you know the world to be is facing a lot of challenges in the human rights front and there's a lot of attack on humor defenders so when collin kaepernick decided to kneel to highlight the issue of racism and alarming number of black people being killed retort that he would be a very fitting person to get the support to really challenge the high level of the preseason and rescaling that the united states the scene. and captain a began his protest back in two thousand and sixteen didn't he how would you describe the difference or the impact he has made annie attacks against him.
9:43 pm
well i think you know the world is seeing the kind of attacks that call in kappa nick and his colleague eric green who's the other person also decided to kneel and protest has faced since then not a single the n.f.l. the team is ready to now sign them on so they've literally been unemployed since that time. and but more than that i mean it's like a daily struggle they're placing all kinds of negative campaigns but that's exactly why we're giving them the award it's because you know that immense garbage that they're showing which has been a huge inspiration to many other activists who are anti racism activists black people but not just black people but they cross the entire spectrum of the u.s. population but as you know anything which happens in the u.s. also has a huge impact across the globe so many breve you manage the friendless i think seek inspiration how to have success given inspiration from the from the very brave

decision of god and kaepernick so that we're ready proud and we're very happy to have given him the best of conscience award today dean sense will a shift in the social political climate or environment particularly in the united states for those who choose to speak out. oh there's no question about it you know that as a kind of for attack against any kind of dissent any kind of freedom of expression in so many countries in the world is turkey this philippines and you're on the hungary the list goes on but the united states is also seeing a very sort of a and b. you know anti dissent any kind of for whites which is raised against the kind of fight back since keep booting against muslims against their produce all these voices have been attacked and particularly also black voices so i think that the fact that call and stood up and i think you would just think of what's happened
9:45 pm
