roots you know communities critics say the trumpet ministration is all but running down a humanitarian program that began in one thousand nine hundred ninety on jordan's of be given an eighteen month extension but over the next two years almost four hundred thousand people who've been legally living in the u.s. for years will be told to leave and gallacher al-jazeera washington president trump will host south korea's leader later this month the white house made that announcement shortly after trump revealed that a date and location has been set for meeting north korea's leader kim jong il in trump previously suggested the meeting could take place in the demilitarized zone where kim and south korea's president held their historic summit last week christopher hill is a former u.s. ambassador to south korea and lead the u.s. delegation at the six party talks on the north korean nuclear issue and he says the location is just one of the many questions surrounding the summit. i would not
8:05 am
focus too much on the venue i would focus on the fact that this is the first time you have a u.s. president meeting a north korean leader and the question is do they really know what they're going to talk about much less do they know what they're going to agree on normally in a high stakes summit like this you have a pretty clear understanding before the summit begins as to what the outcome is so far if there is such an understanding we're not privy to it the first thing they need to do is understand whether the north koreans are ready to give up their nuclear program there have been at some hints that john hunt is prepared to discuss giving up that in their program but that is not very specific the efforts that we had during the george w. bush administration were to try to work on a step by step basis finally however the talks broke down because north korea would not give the verification regime that capacity kind of international standards so
8:06 am
from what i could go there were near getting to the point of verifying for example that north korea is no longer producing tony i'm producing the solid material and what i can see they haven't gotten close to that so there needs to be an agreement on the steps to baltar example international inspectors these kinds of of issues and so a lot of work to do and it's unclear what they could really accomplish in the context of one meeting with respect to a process that could take several months even if that goes. well north and south korea are moving ahead with another display of unity this time with their time zone coffs a north korea will be set forward by half an hour to realign them with seoul time this reverses a decision made by pal yang in two thousand and fifteen kathy novak explains. these flowers in the center of seoul are symbolic of the renewed hope that many people
8:07 am
here are feeling about this country's relationship with north korea the display depicts a map of a unified korea before this peninsula was divided into two countries korea was a japanese colony the legacy of that period is still a strain on japan's relationship with both koreas there's a reminder of that right here the former city hall was built during the time of japanese occupation so in two thousand and twelve the city government opened the new modern building behind it three years ago north korea made its own symbolic statement it set its clocks back by half an hour saying that pyongyang time would replace tokyo time which was imposed by what it called wicked japanese imperialists as a result pyongyang no longer shared a time zone with seoul either. when north korean leader kim jong un stepped over the border and thirty minutes ahead in time a week ago state media says he felt it was painful to see two clocks on the wall of
8:08 am
the summit venue indicating pyongyang and seoul times so he decided to realign the time zones as the first practical step for national reconciliation and unity. approved the koreas are to unify in the future the standard time should unify first is what you need to do this is just the beginning step by step maybe not in our generation but in the next we will have unification south korea welcome to the move saying it represents a decision to remove the obstacles in the path to enter korean and the us north korean exchanges and cooperation that are to come from president has attended a ceremony to mark thirty years since a deadly hostage situation in new caledonia cannot separate kidnapped french military police on over islands. as the first french leader to attend the ceremonies on the island. as a territory of france andrew thomas was there. in one thousand nine hundred eight

8:19 am
took their time and gun them down one by one oh come over here. come over here blow if you were. in those rooms one of those people and this is i was. it just was just after. but if you want to employ. we're just one patient had a gun. or if one person in this room had been there with a gun aimed at the opposite direction. the terrorist would have fled or been shy and it would have been a whole different story. lou palumbo is a retired new york police officer he says the problem with gun violence in the u.s. is bigger than the n.r.a. . here's the basic problem in the country that most people seem to be very unaware
8:20 am
of if you took the n.r.a. out of the equation the united states of america is a heavily pro gun environment more than eighty percent of the states have constituents who vote to support firearms and support the second amendment i happen to support the second amendment i do realize that there are some flaws and that this is a time that we need to compromise on some issues but the bottom line is this every state especially through the southern united states and west of new york are pro-gun states and when their voters vote they support individuals that are pro-gun if their governors congressmen or senators state or us vote in favor of gun legislation they will be voted out of office that's a simple truthful dynamic that applies here the problem is way beyond what this punch line n.r.a. is about the n.r.a. has approximately five million members they off funded across the universe by gun
8:21 am
manufacturers ammunition manufacturers and everyone else that has an interest in the viability of the gun industry but the problem is a little more how would you say convoluted than just the n.r.a. and their interfering it's way more than that the people in the united states are afraid of gun control because it has not been intelligently presented to them and exactly a format that would be productive namely preventing people who are mentally and emotionally ill from obtaining firearms we're in a bit of a divide as we are in most topics and this is no exception there have been cautious between protesters and security forces in indian administered kashmir the violence started in the city of sirte and our security forces launched an attack on gunman demonstrators are still trying to stop all forty's from capturing the fighters. argentina's peso currency has rebounded after the government hiked interest rates again to forty percent to counter a plunge in its value. the measures were taken to try to prevent another economic
8:22 am
crisis daniel shriver reports from ghana sirees. these are nervous times in argentina so government ministers were quick to reassure markets and carmen anxious population their economic policies are on track they said there's nothing to worry about the context of the economy in the context of a growing economy and with rising employment and less poverty we have an argentina that will keep growing for many years to come but we have never seen such a big drop in public spending. but soothing words are not enough and the argentine central bank took the drastic step of raising its key borrowing rates to forty percent the third rise in a week it's to boost the base so that this year has lost fifteen percent of its value against the u.s. dollar that creates inflation which the country has suffered plenty of in recent years this is nothing new in argentina but that doesn't make the frets of an economic crisis any easier it's
8:23 am
a bath with everybody nervously watching the interest in currency exchange rates knowing that the impact of any economic meltdown is brutal. many are still traumatized by the economic crisis of two thousand and one two thousand and two when argentina defaulted on sovereign debts of ninety three billion dollars savers were refused access to their own bank accounts a millions were plunged into poverty. some fear it's coming again others believe it can't happen again and i can see that instead of going no where walking on the brink that's what it seems like to me. in two thousand and one the economy was dollar dies and all deposits had to be turned in dollars but it's not like that now the banks have pesos and won't have the same problems in the community when the president came to power two and a half years ago he promised to make argentina what he called a normal country after years of a. it's still not clear how close see her is to achieving normality we have to
8:24 am
follow over the next days and weeks how this very high interest rates will affect. not only the message for its market which probably will give some but also how the economy would respond with consumption investments and so forth as it is very difficult to maintain such high interest rates long term. inflation is still high and investment is lower than many expected the team is hoping praying the president's promise is still trying. to see it when cyrus vanessa newman is an associate at the columbia university seminar on latin america she says the government had no choice but to raise interest rates what you're seeing happening in argentina is really the deregulation of an economy that was artificially maintained really under the cuban regime that you care of right the husband and then the wife and that was very subsidized very controlled very
8:25 am
paternalistic on the one hand and then on the other hand you also see that there were also who had been receiving a lot of money from what it's worth so is that country has imploded it has had repercussions throughout the region so in market it faces a lot of internal opposition it will be most difficult for small and medium sized businesses and it will be most difficult for people have a great deal of personal debt it will also harm small and medium sized businesses who don't have really negotiating power with the banks and large multinationals or norma's conglomerates how strong the negotiating power won't be as hard hit it will also harm importers and it will harm people will have a labor force that's the nominated in dollars but it will benefit exporters. well people in lebanon head to the polls on sunday for parliamentary elections it's likely regional players iran and saudi arabia will be closely watching as the rift
8:26 am
between them deepens lebanon is caught in the middle of. reports from beirut. it's the last day of election campaigning opponents trade accusations and lebanon's main political parties why for a bigger say this is a country that is divided along sectarian lines prime minister saad that had to be the most powerful sunni politician here has told his supporters that this election is about protecting against iran's growing influence. there this election is a confrontation between two visions one that wants to protect its identity while the other aims to change its identity well beirut the house really accuses his main rival and hizbullah leader has some muscle or law of controlling lebanon's decision making process see it in the arm and the lebanese should listen to anyone who wants
8:27 am
to drag the country into civil war. than a saudi arabia and iran remain locked in a battle for regional influence people here are worried about their future. saudi arabia has its men in lebanon and iran has its men in lebanon want the country will continue to be the battlefield for the struggle for now it's political unless it turns into a military confrontation. how do you he has stepped up his campaign beirut is his stronghold while is eager to make war gains in the valley and the south. in the regional influence paralyzes the government paralyzes political life lebanon had no president for two years and this was a result of regional disagreements. in two thousand and sixteen saudi arabia and iran set aside their differences paving the way for the election of a new president and
8:28 am
a new government led by how do you but it's not clear if that deal with hold amid the growing tension between the regional rivals. this is a cross a moment not only for lebanon but also for the two political heavyweights saudi arabia and iran both with the saw that there are lies with them so today the gains in the election. bonsai are parted miniature trees and a living art form developed in japan and it takes years of discipline to condense nature into a small pots takeo how are they is a bonsai craftsman in sight tom and he says he listens to the voices of the trees as he works. co-operative through my name is tokyo kobe a bonsai craftsman. i was a mechanic at toyota before this i had nothing to do with it until one day i visited
8:29 am
a grower and as soon as i set foot into his place i knew instantly that i was going to quit my job and start working with bonsai. is grown in a pot but cultivating it also involves creating trees that inspire sceneries of the natural world. and. i find beauty in trees when they're healthy and full of life instead of in the shape. i used to be very ambitious and how i transform the trees some of which were the most admired and respected in japan but when i turned thirty seven i realized how much i had damaged them and then suddenly i heard their screams saying we are alive just like you i felt strangled this experience changed me completely. i try to understand what the best conditions are for each tree and deciding on the spot what i need to do now what i shouldn't do and what can't wait. the trees
8:30 am
taught me not to force my own a statics upon them that's why i study hard to understand how the trees the sun and the wind can best work together. i give them only moderate amounts of water and fertilizer it encourages the trees to grow the roots out. it's important to give them the strength to survive and thrive on their own. some are more than a thousand years old the junipers are around four to five hundred years old it's astonishing but i'm equally moved by the life force of plants growing from the seeds or cuttings. the trees grow into certain shapes to thrive and i respect that what i try to do is bring out their beauty so that more people can appreciate and take good care of them i think that's the job of a craftsman even if they're highly valued i wouldn't say that they're true bonsai
8:31 am
unless your heart feels at peace looking at them. you'd give the trees and pass them on because they will leave you but hundreds of thousands of years. hello again the headlines on al jazeera immigrant rights groups are protesting against a new law which could see fifty seven thousand hondurans expelled from the u.s. the trumpet ministration says it's ending temporary protection status granted in one thousand nine hundred nine after hurricane mitch the honduran government says the deeply laments the decision. i've been here in this country for twenty seven years i came in one thousand nine hundred two and now i can't remember anything about my home country i've contributed to this country since i got my t.p.s.
