1:03 pm
a year ago tension in the region was at an all time high after several missile nuclear tests inside north korea well the stakes are high and are expected to set the tone for when north korea holds separate talks with u.s. president donald trump next month or in early june when our diplomatic editor james bays joins us now live now from across the border in james so we understand they've been carrying out rehearsals for this crucial summit tell us what's been going on. yeah the final rehearsal took place in the south after noon body doubles playing the role of supreme leader kim and president moon both sides very keen but the choreography is just right because of the camera angles and the images but also because of the important question of security this is quite a remarkable event when you think what has happened on the korean peninsula in recent months the fact that tensions have been so high here last year
1:04 pm
particularly during the summer last year and really a remarkable turnaround of events bringing us to this first of two possible high level summits what changed what allowed room for diplomacy i've been gauging that at the u.n. in new york in european capitals and here on the korean peninsula i filed this report from the north korean capital. when you walk around pyongyang everywhere you seem to go you hear military music blaring from shops and loudspeakers last summer the drums of war beating particularly heavily it was arguably the tensest time on the korean peninsula in decades september north korean foreign minister really young ho headed from his ministry here to new york to give his speech at the annual meeting of world leaders at the u.n. ahead of him in the speaking order the new president of the us the united states has great strength and patients but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies
1:05 pm
we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. al-jazeera has learnt that hours after that speech foreign minister re sought a brief meeting with the u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorists at the end of the meeting the north korean invited a senior united nations official to pyongyang a trip the un had been trying to arrange for over a year at the beginning of december jeffrey feltman then the un's head of political affairs made a visit to pyongyang in meetings with north korean officials feltman suggested that kim jong un use his new year's speech to strike a more conciliatory tone he suggested too that the winter olympics which are about to be staged in south korea would be a useful occasion to improve relations it's not clear whether the north koreans
1:06 pm
listened to his advice but they did the things he suggested the leader's sister kim yo chung's visit to the olympics change the atmosphere between the north and south starting a diplomatic dialogue there was another important back channel to sweden's foreign minister margot will strum authorized expanded conversations with the north koreans at one point had been planned for foreign minister rio ho to meet the then u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson in stockholm that plan changed when president trump surprised his own officials saying he wanted a face to face meeting with kim jong un and then secret dispatched his cia director mike pompei o. to pyongyang to begin the negotiations i've been speaking to diplomats at the u.n. in new york and here on the korean peninsula strategic discussions here in north korea are made at the highest level and done in secret but everyone i've spoken to believes that the bellicose speech by donald trump at the u.n.
1:07 pm
general assembly was what kick started the current diplomatic efforts. and james you're back in south korea now tell us how washington will be viewing this summit now between the north and the south. they'll be viewing it very very closely to check that this goes well before they give the green light to this other summit that is planned between kim and trump they're still talking of that summit taking place in may or maybe june they haven't yet announced the venue for that summit now you heard in my report that diplomats i've spoken to and i've spoken to . a number of different countries all are praising trump's speech at the united nations very unconventional speech for getting all of this going but the same diplomats will tell you it's a very high stakes strategy what normally happens in diplomacy is you have a long process working on all the details and then you bring in the leaders at the
1:08 pm
very end to sign a deal they're doing this the other way around now of course if this meeting taking place on friday goes badly all the meeting with trump goes badly where do you go then of course the other track to all of this is the military track and no one particularly wants to return to that are to james base their empire james thank you . now armenia could have a new prime minister by next week it's parliament's expected to hold a special session on tuesday to debate and possibly elect a new leader this fall as protests in the capital. demonstrators have been blocking some streets the opposition wants. to become the head of a new government robin forrester walker joins us live now from the armenian capital robin so the parliament says it will elect a new prime minister by the first of may what more can you tell us. where everything seems to be. a

1:11 pm
the french president has used his speech to the u.s. congress to urge washington to reject nationalism and preserve the iran nuclear deal though later emanuel michael said he's not confident donald trump will stay in the deal mike rowe has proposed a new agreement to be negotiated with sharon but expands on the existing accord white house correspondent kimberly healthy has more. the president of the french republic. before a joint session of the u.s. congress french president emanuel argued the united states should remain part of the iran nuclear agreement it is true to see that this agreement. may know the address all concerns and very important concerns this is true but we should not abandon its without having some seen substantial and more substantial than said. a day earlier in meetings that the white house might cross suggested the
1:12 pm
current deal to limit iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief should be the cornerstone of a new supplemental agreement oh and it would address trump's concerns beyond twenty twenty five including limiting iran's influence in the middle east and halting ballistic missile testing we can change and we can be flexible you know in life you have to be flexible so despite criticizing the existing iran agreement repeatedly for years trump is now signaling he's open to recertify iran's compliance under the terms of the deal but only if his criticisms are addressed with the deadline for donald trump to make his decision just weeks away european leaders are conducting a high level lobbying effort on friday german chancellor angela merkel will be the next to visit the white house she'll work to persuade try to remain in the twenty fifteen iran deal but iran says a u.s.
1:13 pm
withdrawal will kill it tehran has threatened to respond by pulling out of another agreement the nuclear nonproliferation agreement on weapons. i'm wednesday iran's president question trumps ability to even comprehend the terms of any agreement shlomo car shifted back to the hot seat you don't have any background in politics you don't have any background in law you don't have any background on international treaties or going to tradesmen a merchant someone who builds towers for a living make judgments about international affairs and well he's currently signaling he's open to the u.s. for maining in the deal negotiated with iran and five other world powers given his impulsive nature there's still time for trump to change his mind and follow through with threats to leave the iran deal kimberly health at al-jazeera at the white house. it has featured plenty of backslapping handshakes and kisses but what are
1:14 pm
the french people make of his close relationship with donald trump. more on that from paris. it was pomp and ceremony and displays of affection and of the words like. the apparent friendship between the french and american presidents was on full show during emmanuel state visit to washington politically the two men have little in common but the liberal macro is determined to get on with his conservative counterparts we have to make a berth for years perfect in france opinion polls suggest donald trump is unpopular but many people support mike ross approach. whether or not they are great friends doesn't matter michael is the french president and he must create strong ties with the u.s. . it's very important for france and for the u.s. and even for europe especially as trump seems to really appreciate president it's a sea chill to have good relations analysts say that macros courting of trump is
1:15 pm
seen by many french people as a political tactic mcroy is probably really doing this as a strategy of trying to show from that he actually does respect him and to value the transatlantic relationship because at the end of the day from the european perspective you might not like the american president but the u.s. was always remain an important partner since micros election he has no cheered his relationship with trump inviting him as france's guest of honor to last year's bastille day celebrations and talking regularly by phone michael says he was able to convince trump to keep u.s. troops in syria some people say that the macros close mr trump is a risk because the u.s. president is so unpredictable but others say the french president has much to gain he can try and influence trump on important international matters such as the iran nuclear deal and it may help france's international standing recall seems to her
1:16 pm
very. well thought through diplomatic strategy which is to create the largest amount of flexibility for france by making sure that the u.s. is on side micra will leave washington with few promises on a number of issues it's unclear for example whether trumbull impose u.s. trade tariffs on the e.u. or agree to an expanded iran nuclear agreement but if trump changes his mind on either issue many people in france may feel that all the back slapping and smiles were worth it natasha butler al-jazeera paris. britain's parliament is set to debate plans to leave the use tariff free customs union after briggs it the vote is non-binding but strong opposition by politicians could increase the pressure on to resume a government it's negotiating the terms of the divorce agreement from the e.u. well a customs union means members do not impose tariffs on each other's goods there's an agreed commentary of imposed on goods coming in from non member states but it
1:17 pm
also limits the freedom of individual members to strike their own trade deals with countries outside the e.u. a customs union reduces checks at the border as well as economic trade barriers if the u.k. left the union delays at the border could slow down delivery of goods and these are concerns for people in the fishing industry in scotland as lawrence lee reports. if there's anything liable to annoy the supporters of bricks it's it's europeans taking fish from british waters but on the east coast of scotland there's another side to the story the sale starts at seven o'clock. it's midday five hours ago this warehouse was stacked with fish by now it's being prepared for market across the u.k. and abroad more than half will go to europe and it needs to go fast to fetch a decent price could leave the market here about eleven o'clock process and that evening and catch fire in the morning or go through the tunnel whatever. any delay
1:18 pm
at all to this volume. means an expanse or a lower price for the process which in these times is critical for. many fisherman support breck's it in the interests of protecting their waters and stocks but just as many in the fishing industry want open borders with europe can they have both protecting the rights of british fishermen has become a total make issue for many leading breakfasts as they say the u.k. must leave the european free trade area but staying in the european free trade area is crucial for those parts of the fishing industry which need to move their stock quickly to some of the best restaurants in places like france and spain and that's a big problem cullen's which is a local delicacy but not if you live in the post for a week. to make the points about what happens to fish if it gets stuck in a truck for too long the local m.p. here sent the government minister in charge of bricks it's
1:19 pm
a traditional fish pie in the post government ministers who support breck's it he says don't understand their own constituency. i believe they're simply choosing to look at the divisions in the tory party they're making the decisions based on politics not economics not the interests of the people in these islands it's time we looked at the harsh reality. as of where they've got this do. of course it isn't the only fish anything perishable or goods reliant on a fast turnaround could be affected disastrously if british trucks are forced to queue for days before entering the continent they were in continue discussions with the u.k. government and scottish government i think the concern is we've had real clarity as to what you can government don't want which is the customs union but real uncertainty still as to what the future does hold. in peterhead they're expanding the ports because they believe their markets will grow supporters of the shore continental europe will fall for a deal on taxes and tariffs because they love to eat british fish the livelihoods
1:20 pm
of people here may depend on this assumption. lawrence joins us live now from london lawrence downing street seem to be playing down this vote but it will put more pressure on tourism a that won't it. well yes very much so indeed there's every suggest at the moment that the government is not only trying to limit the debate that's been demanded of them as to whether the u.k. should stay in the customs union but potentially not actually have a vote today at all i think for thir that they might lose because if they did end up losing a bigger more important votes that's all to government policy it could actually collapse the governments with only three months ago before the supposed breck's it so it's very serious and clearly the moral of that story from scotland is that if if supporters of brics it want to stay in the customs union then who exactly does the government say it's supporting in terms of trying to leave little to spring for from the sense of european reform to what sections of the british economy do you
1:21 pm
think would benefit from the u.k. leaving the customs union so the customs union is basically about avoiding tariffs and so that's really a question about manufacturers most manufacturers won't benefit i don't think from even the customs union because their biggest market syria in the e.u. and who might benefit can you think of anybody that there are some that might not care or might benefit a bit like a very price sensitive high end cars whiskey that kind of thing where a lot of it is sold outside the european union stuff is already solid place to touch a pan in china isn't it that just carried on as it is and well if the u.k. managed to get free trade agreement with china. then it might be possible to sound more cars because there would be zero tariffs so you know there might be some small benefits but overall i think it's pretty clear that remaining in the customs union would be best for u.k. manufacturing which which sorts of industries are most worried about this would you say well the really. big worried industries are car manufacturing
1:22 pm
and because they rely on this just in time manufacturing where parts crisscross europe and they have to put in orders about twenty four hours in advance to some supplier in france the part comes over and then it's assembled. many and then it goes back thanking the felon so any kind of interruption in that kind of yeah and i mean. these are companies which honestly british are the companies that make cars here like this and until you go to which presumably could could go somewhere else inside the european union they wanted to get that certainly true i mean it might take a bit of time because it takes a time to dismantle the plant that you've gotten but it's certainly a possibility the next one for example which is got a car plant in spain might decide that while it's in the customs union in it's just more competitive to make cars then so is it is this ideology taking over economics you think on the part of the government i think i think it's setting the ideology in the sense of taking back control over cautious cost benefit analysis of the
1:23 pm
cannot mix and it's clearly. an argument for sovereignty that they're making you know that it would be ridiculous to leave the you without having control over our own trade policy but the point is that if you share trade policy with the e.u. then you might have better economic outcomes you probably will and that's the argument for remaining in and just a final point if they did so in the customs union presumably would sort out a lot of the border issue with northern ireland as well wouldn't it would certainly help our lots because the big issue is that if kids are going to come into northern ireland and then be sold to the republic then there's going to have to be border checks and if there's a customs union between the u.k. and the e.u. those particular border checks are eliminated it doesn't do everything there's still some questions about regulate barriers and so forth but it gets you a long way in the sentence do you think she might have to back down to resume a. i think i think it looks like she might well have to because we've been hearing that a lot of people even supporting ministers are saying that they would be relaxed about
1:24 pm
her losing these votes which suggest that we should yes that she might be willing to to to to take parliamentary parliamentary sovereignty seriously but if she did then it's suggested that a couple of very senior brits are supporting ministers including boris johnson the foreign secretary might resign and potentially there could be a leadership contest against her reason may be just a few months ago before the u.k. supposedly the european union so it is a real miss lewinsky then westminster lawrence thank you. not least three thousand civilians of either been killed or injured by improvised explosive devices in somalia in the past three years or last year was the worst by far largely because of a powerful bombing in mogadishu the killed more than five hundred people but six months later things a slowly returning to normal mom of the reports from opposition. going to shows kilometer five junction is one big construction site the huge craters left by the massive truck bomb last october has been felt on the road paved again such is the
1:25 pm
resilience of the people of somalia. the middle east will wising that a construction of his family's hotel that was completely destroyed put to death at the door always we have no option but to rebuild not doing so would mean we have surrendered and given up in life. the truck bomb exploded at the busy market during rush hour it was powerful enough to damage buildings hundreds of letters an explosion killed more than five hundred people and injured hundreds. who watched single attack a somali history was blamed on al shabaab fighters who have been waging war for years. there's not most romantic thing here but a scuffle still very real the consequences yet to be fully and the six months on doesn't suffer from the missing of their relatives there's still not a lot. of the law here ali has just retired from turkey where he was taken for specialized treatment for bodyguards he was selling cigarettes and candy on the

1:36 pm
dumping sewage directly into the sea so if the island was becoming a cesspool he was right to close it was indeed well there could have is usually a gradual approach to the first place merely dismantle the ones that are very. establishment that are encroaching on the coastline and go through and take the people who are not so. and that there are many violations on the grass for quite some time and the sudden drastic cut off affects everybody whether or not they have been complying with environmental standards so what will be the impact then on jobs livelihoods businesses i mean this is one of the philippines most attractive tourist spots isn't it. it is indeed and aside from the direct effect on the people who are actually there working there the thousands of workers there there is a knock on effect to the rest of the tourism stream since about twenty percent of
1:37 pm
all tourists go there so thousands of jobs will be lost elsewhere in the country while there its founder there could easily be a longer term effect tour operators around the world find that the things is not a reliable place to send people and start looking elsewhere but there have been growing concerns about the environmental health of the ottoman clearly the vos numbers of tourists going that has has had a devastating impact on baraka well indeed de fact of the banner is that twenty years ago then its tourism secretary warned about contamination of the waters off the rock guy and nothing was done and so for twenty years very little has been done and it is indeed a problem but the overreaction shutting down the entire ireland to solve the problem seems to be. a sudden way out but when expected just
1:38 pm
a final thought from your president attacks has warned that either the tourism trade clean up the island and clean up its act or will close it down permanently so what happens after the six month shutdown well i believe they'll really be able to in six months solve the basic problem there unfortunately there will be probably longer term of a bank so i'm certain the tourism industry and brock on particular and so there needs to be something done to try to speed up that the proper steam route thanks for talking to al jazeera. thank you for having. now turkish journalists working for an opposition newspaper have been convicted of helping so-called terrorist groups a court near istanbul handed out multiple sentences to fourteen staffers in a trial seen as a test case for press freedoms in the country they remain free though pending an appeal three others were cleared the palestinian journalist ahmed abu hussein will
