deserve to be able to live together in harmony prosperity and peace that bright and beautiful future can only happen when the threat of nuclear weapons is removed no way it can happen otherwise if and when kim jong un chooses to engage in constructive dialogue and actions i am waiting for the us house minority leader nancy pelosi says kim jong un is the big winner despite the summit cancellation i think it's a good thing for kim jong un here you had a thug a person who killed all is own family members a person who has runs a police state being legitimized by the president of the united states they were on a par with each other he got global recognition and regard he's the big winner and
11:03 am
we got this letter from the president saying ok never mind he must be having a giggle fit right there now and north korea and telling young it's unfortunate because if you say you you want to be optimistic you want to be hopeful that something can come of something the french president expressed his willingness to help bring the u.s. and north korea back to the negotiating table left wanted to date him on this because the france is prepared to help in this work but i think it is also for the international community in its entirety in a multilateral context and perhaps for the united nations to play a special role and so i hope that this is just an incident within the process which must continue and of which we know that ultimate pain which is coherent with our international aims and is vital for the region so i hope we do not stop there but that we continue to do this vital work together rob mcbride isn't so and has reaction from the. an intended gesture of peace
11:04 am
in a process that may be going nowhere. the demolition of tunnels at north korea's underground nuclear testing site. it was meant to be a further step on the path to a historic summit but by the time these pictures were reaching the outside world it was already reeling from the shock of the summit's cancellation. from north korea's foreign ministry a measured response calling the decision not consistent with the desire of humankind for peace and stability adding that north korea remained willing to sit down with the u.s. side to solve problems at any time from south korea disappointment verging on the will demand from me and ask for vice foreign minister kim statement we see no change of a sincere will by the relevant countries when it comes to resolving the current
11:05 am
situation through dialogue the government will continue our diplomatic efforts to further extend this momentum for the talks as part of that effort south korea's foreign minister spoke with her u.s. counterpart mike pompei or by phone she emphasized the need to build on the goodwill of the landmark into korean summit at panmunjom in april fearing months of painstaking diplomacy could now be waisted. south korean president meeting with north korean leader kim jong un had laid the groundwork for the summit well i think jane is entitled to feel fairly indignant about this whole business because he has been a leader in working with kim jong un to develop an understanding and a way forward. in place of improving ties could there be a return to the hard line dictated by the us and demanded of its east asian allies
11:06 am
. in order for north korea to change their policies it is necessary for japan and the us and south korea to apply pressure including the united nations sanctions. with the united states call to stand firm against north korea south korea in hopes of mediating a historic breakthrough shouted as the tunnels of. robert broad al-jazeera sole people have been protesting in south korea against the cancellation of the us north korea summer demonstrators gathered outside the u.s. embassy and so they say they feel they've been cheated the chance to live in peace . jim brown joins us now from beijing tell us about the reaction from there. well china's government has taken its time to respond to president donald trump's decision to pull out of that summit that was planned for singapore but finally on
11:07 am
friday afternoon here in beijing we got that response it came from luke airing who is the foreign ministry spokesman he said that china had noticed there have been obstacles in the process of preparing for this meeting but the china also notices the two sides are willing to meet up and we hope both sides will cherish the opportunity of the efforts that have so far be made he also said that he hoped both sides could now be patient now the language rather like the language from north korea has been restrained measured and actually quite conciliatory and even upbeat and i think what china is a sense lee saying jane is this if the united states and north korea really want this summit to happen then it will and china will play its role in trying to facilitate that and i think if it does happen if there is a a summit some way down the line then i think china will play a much stronger role in guiding north korea than it has done up until now essentially i think we're seeing north korea and china now speaking with one voice
11:08 am
and i think the build up of the summit has seen china and north korea actually coming much closer together remember relations between these two ideological allies neighbors has been very strained during the past year because china a force has been enforcing those u.n. sanctions against north korea but it may well start to feel that perhaps it should ease up on the economic squeeze against north korea what sort of impact you think it's likely to have on china u.s. relations. well we have a number of friction points between china and the united states at the moment taiwan the south china sea the iran nuclear deal and of course now north korea's nuclear program now china on friday was not entering into the blame game it wasn't pointing fingers at the united states of course president from has essential he accused president xi jinping of seeking to undermine the summit by trying to
11:09 am
influence kim jong un so he can gain leverage in the ongoing trade negotiations between china and the united states but china didn't want to as i say get into the blame game today was trying to sound restrained it wanted to be seen to be i guess like north korea the good guys in the fallout from this decision and for the united states to really be the intransigent one i thank you for that adrian brown. poser of an island on whether to appeal one of europe's strictest abortion laws an amendment to the constitution makes terminating a pregnancy illegal in all but the strictest circumstances and it's punishable with a long prison sentence the vote pitches social and religious conservatives against those who want a more liberal island barker reports from dublin irish people have been given an important choice campaigners from both sides of the argument have been bringing the
