a stranger in the netherlands have now informed the russian federation that we hold it responsible under international law for its role in the bringing down of seventeen astray and the netherlands have requested russia to enter into negotiations to open up a dialogue about its conduct and to seek reparations roy chalons has more from st petersburg. australia and the netherlands have taken this step because of findings released by the joint investigation team looking at the downing of m.h. seventeen those findings were released in a press conference yesterday and what the j.i.t. said was the missile system that shot down m.h. seventy had come from a specific brigade of the russian military the fifty third anti aircraft missile
2:03 pm
brigade and that the system of being moved from a base in the kursk in south western russia across the ukrainian border in the summer of two thousand and fourteen then was used to shoot down and wait seventeen and then was moved back into russia again the evidence presented was clearly enough for. the netherlands and australia to feel that they could hold russia legally accountable for this now they say that holding the country legally accountable in this way is a complex process what they want to centrally is for russia to enter into dialogue with them. the accept responsibility for there to be some kind of recompense for the families who lost people in the incident probably compensation they wants the international courts or an international body to perhaps hear the next stage take this forward now russia has always denied
2:04 pm
involvement in the downing of seventeen effectively for it to do so for it to acknowledge responsibility would be to acknowledge its role in the conflicts that's been taking place in amman in eastern ukraine something which it has always denied as well a clandestine war effectively in a neighboring country moscow vladimir putin has invested so much in its foreign policy decisions that it would be a sign of weakness for him to step back from. to acknowledge guilt in any way and so until the administration taint is in russia until by me putin perhaps is no longer in office i don't think we're going to get any admission of culpability from the russians we'll get more of what they've done so far which is deny deny and deny . north korea says the cancellation of a planned summit with the us president is against the wishes of the world's donald trump has called off the meeting claiming tremendous anger and open hostility from

the north but pyongyang says it's still open to resolving the issues schipper times is more. than a few hours after releasing a letter counseling the plan summit with north korea president donald trump issued a warning spoken to south korea and japan and they are not only ready should fully sure reckless acts be taken by north korea but they are willing to shoulder much of the cost of any financial burden any of the costs associated by the united states in operations if such an unfortunate situation is forced upon us however the president suggested the singapore summit could still happen it's possible that the existing summit could take place or a summit. at. a later date doldrums letter to north korea was
2:06 pm
a curious mix of threats and polite regret sadly based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement i feel it is inappropriate at this time to have this long planned meeting the letter said you talk about your nuclear capabilities but ours are so massive and powerful i pray to god they will never have to be used but the president added i thought a wonderful dialogue was building up which mean you and me and ultimately it is only the dialogue that matters if you change your mind having to do with this most important summit please do not hesitate to call me or write us secretary of state also said the next move is for the north koreans to make chairman kim why that decision to make for himself as president said we welcome their call their outreach to head back down there did we consult with our allies about the decision before making a public i don't want at least advise them that it's was coming i don't want to get into who all we notify does the white house i think will speak to that in
2:07 pm
a statement the south korean government said it was attempting to make sense of what precisely president trump means the north koreans and it was spurred by repeated threats from administration officials that north korea could face the libyan model if no deal was reached that refers to the overthrow and killing of libyan leader moammar gadhafi in twenty eleven the fear now is a hardening of positions on both sides i'm a little bit concerned now that if the trump people give up on this completely that we might be headed back to where we were six months ago fire and fury and the rest of it right it's important that we keep talking to the north koreans and we not slide back to fire and fury still for the moment the president says he is ready for what he called constructive dialogue with north korea i really believe him when he wants to do what's right so hopefully the work she had written see al-jazeera washington rob mcbride is more regional reaction from the south korean capital. an intended gesture of peace in

2:20 pm
european data holders have had two years to work out a game plan for g.d.p. but the protection law intended to create a level playing field for data use has hit smaller groups hard. this youth football club in berlin uses membership data to circulate newsletters and fixture lists the staff are all volunteers g.d.p. are is a major headache we have a home page and actually i love having photos at every team on the on the home page when you know we're not sure if we do it you're not going to be ready by friday i. not completely. it's awful. for europe's tech companies g.d.p. are is an incentive to innovate his nibs. cappuccino at this trade expo in paris there are voice activated devices the don't actually share any data at all the consumers will get to choose right and they'll know better so they'll choose
2:21 pm
for equal features they'll choose the one that protect the privacy rights get it wrong though and a twenty four million dollar fine is a genuine worry it is it is and it's particularly worrying because you cannot be sure that you have implemented the rules the right way at the moment the recent deluge of g.d.p. our emails shows the ongoing uncertainty some ask customers to explicitly opt in others put the onus on the customer to opt out and others simply mention updated previously settings. the facebook bridge and all it's a curse scandal may seem a world away from the g.d.p. our compliance requirements of a small sports club such as this but the fact is that even seemingly innocuous data when put together really starts to matter lobby groups and campaigners have broadly welcomed g.d.p. are as a reset button a wake up call they say for e.u. citizens to engage with some fundamental questions do i really want to continue
2:22 pm
giving this company my data and when need to do that is that it isn't necessary for much for me to make a conscious attempt or a conscious decision what data they share a recent survey of german companies revealed that just twenty five percent of them expected to be able to meet the g.d.p. our deadline e.u. data regulators are expected to be sympathetic for now but after extra time comes penalties paul brennan al-jazeera berlin leader calendars a legal officer with privacy international she says the new regulation puts transparency at the forefront for companies and organizations. what we've seen as more and more data has generated in our everyday life is that companies are amassing more data and they're using it in ways that people wouldn't expect their exploiting their data and what t.p.r. is doing is placing limits on this and. with these e-mails you can already
2:23 pm
see that the law is having an impact that companies even if they're scrambling at the last minute to do something about it are realizing that actually they need to look at closely at what they do with people's data and and really that out and not just out of dating their privacy policies because they feel like it because they're actually obliged to be more transparent about what they do with people's data and to provide more information but it's also about having this kind of justification for what what they're doing with your data and and that that is one of the reasons we're seeing this but it is also and this kind of scramble at the last minute but. today will as the law takes effect is very much just the beginning for the some kind of dos searching for a motive off to a bomb explosion in an indian restaurant fifteen dinah's were injured three seriously in the city of this is so the near toronto detectives are studying
