3:05 am
a former ambassador to south korea and he was part of the delegations that negotiated during the so-called six party talks between two thousand and three of tall they broke down in two thousand and nine now interestingly enough on the north korean side their chief negotiator is chose she's a deputy foreign minister and was part of the north korean delegation during those six nation talks so certainly the go see it is from both sides know each other well aware of the history of the ongoing crisis in north korea now what they are doing we understand is to set an agenda for the talks should they take place on june the twelfth without a clear agenda discussed over the next three days is likely to be no summit while the u.s. delegation arrived in north korea after a surprise meeting regime can draw on and mungy in south korea's president says
3:06 am
pyongyang is committed to denuclearization and kim is looking forward to meeting trump and to thomas reports from seoul. the surprise summit the second meeting in a month between moon j. and kim jong un was arranged just hours in advance it was held in secret this footage she was released only afterwards by the two governments of north korea's with excited commentary attached. what's clear is that the sudden into a korean summit was a direct response to donald trump's letter canceling the june twelfth north korea u.s. summit the leaders of both careers want that back on littlejohn's. we have agreed that the jute hope summit should be held successfully and that our journey to the korean peninsula is denuclearization em perpetual peace should not be halted president said kim jong un once again committed to denuclearize ation and that he
3:07 am
had told him that president trump in return would end hostile relations and cooperate economically this was not a meeting president trump was told about in advance but in washington tonight he hinted he could yet be travelling to singapore a lot of people are working on it it's moving along very nicely so we're looking at june twelfth singapore that hasn't changed. and it's more along pretty well analysts the splits on who's driving the agenda donald trump is seen as a person who can start a war and the last say forty eight hours to get maybe more of the fear that dormant thompson instruction is going to cancel the summit and then this if you lead to a new escalation of tension some probably of what if this year has been decisive others think it's kim in the driving seat they think his commitment to denuclearize nation means u.s. withdrawal from the region to not unilateral north korean disarmament in exchange
3:08 am
for the lifting of sanctions i think it's the north koreans driven disengagement consolidate nuclear deterrence they've decided that they can push forward undergoes not only with the united states but also south korea and reengage with china they have a clear pathway forward whoever is driving the june twelfth singapore summit is looking a lot more likely than it was it seems like longer but it was only three days ago that the u.s. north korean summit was suddenly called off since then we've been on what some have called a diplomatic rollercoaster roller coasters run along tracks someone designs them plans the twists and turns this ride is altogether different and a lot more serious and littleness al jazeera so. the leader of italy's five star movement has called on parliament to impeach president. after efforts to form a new government collapsed it comes after matter of a veto the prime minister designate giuseppe conti's choice of economy minister

a five star movement has called for president. impeachment after efforts to form a new government collapsed prime minister designate a separate kaante gave up attempts after much at all a veto of his choice of economy minister. palestinians have been killed by israeli shelling in gaza that happened east of the city of rafa in the southern gaza strip israel's military says the men were armed members of the islamic jihad group more than one hundred people have been killed by israeli fire in the gaza strip since mass protests began in march. two boats will leave gaza this week with palestinians needing urgent hospital care on board who tried to break a book a the by israel which has prevented medical supplies from getting in and patients getting out all spittles have been struggling to treat thousands of palestinians wounded by israeli bullets during protests but in smith reports. gaza is blockaded by israel on all sides sea included but this week two boats loaded with patients
3:16 am
who need hospital treatment and students with university places will try to breach israel's sea blockade which begins sixteen kilometers out in the mediterranean that passengers have a strong determination to break this siege whatever the circumstances whatever the challenges whatever the obstacles that would have been that would be imposed by the israeli side gaza's hospitals are full of patients who need urgent medical treatment there are those injured in two months of protests and longer term cases at least now i have sixty five of them already admitted those who would want to go in the marshall for turn but there are many other cases of cancer in open heart surgeries and many other complicate newer surgical cases of the baby cases all of them need to travel abroad because of shortage of personalities induced by the israeli blockade in gaza strip and why can't they travel abroad because the bulk of our seed must have time and these patients should probably in time he can say to
3:17 am
a patient why when cancer come back after three months that he will deteriorate and you have too much complication they cannot wait life long waiting for this product up in. the boats that will be used to being kept hidden organizes fear israel will try to destroy them before they leave the port and reality the boats are not going to get any further than israel's maritime blockade which is as tightly and harshly enforced as the land blockade but at least those on the boats will highlight again the open prison like conditions that there are here in gaza that prevent almost anyone from leaving burnitz with al-jazeera gaza. protest against refugees has been held in germany's capital thousands of supporters of the far right party alternative for germany on a.s.d. march through berlin the party swept into parliament last year on a wave of anti migrant sentiment it's now the largest opposition bloc ever chaytor has more from berlin. a highly vocal confrontation herron beilin but not
3:18 am
a violent one alternative but germany held a large rally outside best of all the berlin main train station then marched through the streets to the brandenburg gate behind me where they they held their actual demonstration and they heard speeches from the party leaders but it was a message which the protest has and there are more many more thousands of them on the streets of berlin than there were members of the old terms of the germany they tried to drown out the message of this party it first came into the parliament in the last elections with a bonus tag any more than ninety seats they are now the main opposition party in germany they've overtaken the green party and they're beginning to challenge the social democrats who are part of the grand coalition so there is a movement here towards the extreme right a populist movement a movement it was because essentially by the large number of refugees more than a million that came in and angela merkel's open open borders policy though this is
3:19 am
a problem that's going to remain here in germany the fact that even in the bone the stark you're hearing paranoid races that evoke began to semitic remarks and you are now hearing them it's little rallies on the streets of berlin this is a problem that's going to be causing ructions within the grand coalition social democrats want to keep a liberal attitude towards refugees but the agam up as parties trying to tighten up the borders restrict immigration two hundred thousand a year. so that's causing a tension even within a grand coalition and we're going to see more scenes like this and we're going to hear more from the germany because now essentially they see this growing mainly the demographic supporters from each of the unemployed in the older people and he said in germany who fear that communities are being changed forever and who fear for
