1:01 pm
australian and english cricket boards denied their players were involved in match fixing will have all the fallout from al-jazeera as exclusive investigation. their positive signs of the summit between u.s. president donald trump and korean leader kim jong un could still go ahead after all the also hearing that the south korean leader may join those talks progress has ramped up since a surprise second meeting between kim and the south korean president moon j. in at the demilitarized zone on saturday now trump has confirmed a u.s. delegation is in north korea while a team from the north has been spotted in china on its way to singapore and that's where the meeting was scheduled for on june the twelfth before trump canceled it last week but he since expresses enthusiasm for talks tweeting that he believes north korea has a brilliant potential and will be
1:02 pm
a great economic and financial nation one day for more let's speak to andrew thomas in salt so the summit is back on. so it looks that way jane that i think about the phonetic weekend we have seen sternal trump canceled the summit on friday then we had a very conciliatory statement from north korea we had some more positive looking tweets over the weekend from donald trump and then that surprise summit a second summit between president moon and kim jong un on saturday and now it does look very much like the groundwork is being laid for that summit to happen as originally planned on june the twelfth as you say there's a delegation flying right now from washington d.c. to singapore they should arrive late night monday at the same time we think that the north korean delegation that is on route now from pyongyang to singapore we think they've changed planes in beijing and are now on their way to singapore they will meet up and try and talk with just six and security. meeting that goal trump
1:03 pm
was talking about and that tweet you refer to is actually happening in just over the border between north and south korea on the north and saw east and those talks are about the agenda what will be discussed the nitty gritty there being led on the u.s. side by some kim now south korean born but he was the u.s. ambassador here in south korea wants is now u.s. ambassador to the philippines actually but he's also been intimately involved in all things north korea for most of his career so he is the right man for the job in that sense the vice foreign minister of north korea she is meeting with him so on he and again she knows this backwards from the north korean side so those people are meeting inside north korea we've got a security logistics teams meeting in singapore probably on choose day in that sense it's all going ahead but we've got some bear in mind that what's happening in panmunjom now is probably talk about the definition of the nuclear eyes ation it's all very well for the u.s. to demand that it's all very well for the north koreans to say they're prepared to
1:04 pm
do that but unless they mean the same thing it doesn't necessarily mean very much and denuclearization can mean different things to different people from the u.s. perspective we know that donald trump thinks unilateral disarmament by the north koreans from the north korean side they want mutual disarmament and at the same time a lifting of sanctions those two positions are very different unless some progress can be made behind the scenes over the coming days and what we've got now ten days before the truck driver would have to start heading off to singapore unless some groundwork is made of some progress made there and the summit may remain off but right now the signs are a lot lot lot more positive than they were on friday it really is a well it went it happened somewhat isn't it and what about well he went t j a n twenty make it to the talks. well moon julian has been absolutely crucial to this whole process of course he's become affectively the go between between president trump and kim jong il and he had that surprise summit with kim jong un on saturday
1:05 pm
and he relayed a lot of what donald trump said to him so certainly he's important to the process and i expect he would like to be there and the blue house here in seoul has said that they are a working level discussing the possibility of moon being in singapore at the same time having said that though they all saying that he would join talks not be there right at the beginning it would be a bilateral between kim jong il and president trump at the beginning president moon might join them possibly minutes later hours later possibly days later or at a subsequent trilateral summit some weeks down the line but he wouldn't be there right at the very start we are talking at the moment about a successful boy lateral summit first still if it happens then potentially followed by a trilateral summit involving president ok andrea thank you robert kerry is a professor of international relations at police and national university he says president is using the summit of kim jong un to prop up his domestic image. it
1:06 pm
would help a lot if the americans particularly would start to lay out what specifically they're looking for besides demanding that the north koreans give up everything because they're not going to do that so assuming the north koreans aren't going to give up all that what would the united states be willing to live with and what we want what we willing to give the north koreans in return i mean that's one of the things have been really frustrating about this process in the last couple of weeks is this kind of like all or nothing sort of feel to it right now to some it's going to happen or it's not all this great drama they're going to give up everything the libya model that's probably not how this thing going to shake out they'll probably be the north koreans will give up something that will give us something else and then be a series of meetings and steps taken years in which you have concession made for counter concession it's not all going to get wrapped up in three weeks that would be extraordinary i think on donald trump's side yes i think it's a little more obvious driven by domestic needs the president dismissing a tough election in the fall we know the president likes the drama and theatricality of these kinds of big meetings president hasn't really steep themselves in the details of nuclear weapons or missile technology if you listen to his speeches he just very thin on what specifically we're going to ask for give
1:07 pm
away i think a lot of this yes is driven by his desire for been to cation and approval in the global media improving relations between north and south korea have led to a search and property prices along the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries throughout my pride has that story separating two countries that are officially still it war it's been potentially one of the most dangerous borders in the world now the possibility of peace could transform the villages and towns on the south korean side of the demilitarized zone. rigi one owns five other properties around south korea and there's just joined the surge of buyers looking north making her pick right off the map with dollars hanging out on the usually i put it to fight for i make up my mind but i was so sure about this place i didn't have to go. she now owns a piece of woodland in the village of kuantan like many border communities it has
1:08 pm
lagged behind the rest of south korea and seems primed for development renji one borderlands site unseen and then visited it later some people are buying plots they can't even get to without special permission passages of countryside that run right up to the fence of the d.m.z. itself and that have largely remained undeveloped for decades improving relations that led to the summit between north and south korea last month have resulted in a three fold increase in property transactions with prices surging by up to a. temple. and many people expect there is a good chance that the green summit will lead to success there expected to be a lot of exchanges between north and south so many roads and railways are in high demand. a previous summit in two thousand and seven also saw a spike in border property prices only to fall back again as relations. and as u.s.
1:09 pm
and north korean officials continue to meet at the truce village of poland john ahead of the summit between their respective leaders the only again off again twists of the last few days a reminder of the talks volatility still remains optimistic and you know i'm not concerned because this will remain my i said it won't go away like a fall in the stock market is always going to be there and she hopes north south relations are now on a permanently improved foundation robert broad al-jazeera june in the d.m.z. south korea go to other news now and look at some live pictures coming to us from rome where we are expecting italy's president's surge that it to announce his new interim prime minister another former prime minister just epic on their step down on sunday after talks to form a government collapse the president scuttle the bed to form a euro skeptic coalition by rejecting their choice for economy minister and that is
1:10 pm
led to calls for his impeachment president martinelli as move forced the prime minister designate to give up trying to form an administration the president was quick to defend himself saying he had to protect italy's economy but that will likely now try to appoint a caretaker government and there are fears of a possible constitutional crisis and new elections with continuing political instability. and the picks up the story. after weeks of talks in hopes of a breakthrough italy's prime minister designate throws in the towel. i have announced the mandate which i have been given by the president of the republic to form a government of change. giuseppe conti had been asked by the so-called populist coalition which between them won the most seats in the march election with forming a viable cabinet now he says that's proved a bridge too far and the sticking point the proposed economy minister paulose of
1:11 pm
owner a former minister who's also a well known euro skeptic italy's president says some voter would have sent a worrying message to italy's partners and the financial markets. they love. i'm not considering the individual i don't want someone who supports an opinion which was expressed more than want anything that would inevitably lead to italy's exit from the or right. up until the last minute. leader of the right wing likud party had insisted his pick for economy minister must not be vetoed speaking live on social media late on sunday he called the president's rejection anti democratic . and said no he said there will not be a government we work for nothing we will have a technocrat government i ask of the a democracy in italy do the italian decide or do the germans offense decide it's absolutely incredible from my point of view. so the me wants fresh elections so too does luigi demaio leader of the five star movement which got the most votes in
1:12 pm
march when the region there was over fifty percent support with two political parties parties that want to change things and want to represent ateliers in their interests but in the end a way to block it is always seems to be found the president is expected to decide his next step on monday he could well see another non-politician given the job of heading you need to read government for italians political instability is a fact of life one of many hoped was about to change the debugger al-jazeera and just go galiot is the head of the talian based political risk consultancy policy cern i joins us now from rome very good to see you right at the moment we are waiting for an interim prime minister to be announced we are hearing that it's possibly the former international monetary fund official color cut that early is that a good choice cocktail is obviously a good choice but the time couldn't be worse. is called in but his chance
1:13 pm
is to get votes offer to pass a vote of confidence in this parliament are close to zero the only political parties that will support him are likely to be the p.d. and possibly not quite sure forty tirelessly on his part so. is likely to get the thumbs down and he will inevitably be a laying down. head of government taking the country to the next elections which are likely to take place in september or october of this year so if he's not going to get the support that he needs to push through any sort of change why are we seeing this action is a desperate action where does this leave the president what isn't that he should be doing. but what we have now is an unprecedented clash between the anti establishment forces on the one and the
1:14 pm
establishment. on the other hand the head of state or has become has been framed as the embodiment of the establishment so while we are going to see throughout the next three months is an overarching narrative of the people versus the means of pilasters so the establishment there with the head of state for the first time becoming the main target of the entire campaign on the other hand however we will also have a very strong fear narrative much like we had with the brics at the referendum in the u.k. with italians reminded every every day of. this dynamic is putting their wealth at risk with the spread that on italian braindead widening by the day an italian i said staking and it really and i'm sure
1:15 pm
we are if i could jump in reaction times call for the impeachment of the president doesn't help well honestly i don't think there this is technique of the technically doable but it's indicative of the overall mood very much anti-establishment versus mapped out. all right very good to have you with us francesco community thank you. that's more head on the news including colombians have to wait another three weeks to find out their new president will be. a small in the virus in india that's causing fear like symptoms and possibly brain damage. and in sports or bron james does it again he leads his team to the n.b.a. finals that story coming up later and.
1:16 pm
people in colombia will be heading back to the polls often none of the presidential candidates got fifty percent of the vote they'll be choosing between a critic of the government's twenty sixteen peace deal with fog rebels and a former congressman who supports that agreement the runoff will be held in three weeks time i love america to see in yemen reports from bogota. conservative candidates event came in ahead in the first round with thirty nine percent of the votes supported by colombians want to modify a historic peace accord the stunt doubles which many see as a reward for terrorists or just going because i am sure hope the seeds closs hatred. but he'll be facing his political end to sis former bogota mayor gustava who in his use was a left wing urban guerilla and from nowhere almost from his this is what we're going to talk about at the ballot boxes in fifteen days it's
1:17 pm
a return to violence or it's building an era of peace that i. put to supporters believe he can deliver on the promise of health education and social justice for millions of disenfranchised colombians in what is one of the world's most socially unequal countries that you have that if you help the old the mothers like me who needed help i always had his support when he was mayor i trust and believe in hand . in order to win. big. which is that we have not got all kinds of opponents warn he'll turn colombia into a new than israela or cuba he is deeply distrusted by the political and economic a stablish meant. but do get to raises concerns among moderates in recovery. i have no doubt that if you wins he'll extradite the fark leaders and the peace process the same thing that happened in the middle east after agreements were violated will happen here so what's clear is that colombians will be going to the
1:18 pm
polls again choose between two radically different options for their future. looking to see in human. color johnson is a senior analyst for the international crisis group he says tampering with the fark peace agreement may discourage other rebel groups from disarming. well the island specifically at st louis arch agree a very close eye on this whole process not only on the elections but on the implementation of arc agreement in general so any failings or any changes or any sort of intentional. lack of will to implement a piece in or attentional attempt to change it would actually send a signal to the element of the colombian government not very trustworthy negotiating or there's a chance without a doubt if we get a president like a soap at it or someone who at least is willing to say that they won't change the peace here and i think those divisions will end up actually being these groups will
1:19 pm
come together a bit more because there's someone who may feel they can trust but i still think violence is not completely off the table in colombia's future unfortunately right now we have various foreign dissident groups operating in different parts of the country that you know but because the peace negotiation simply is not as sure and as bad has made little progress in the time that it's been taking place is still operate being militarily and so are different drug trafficking organizations of the country rebels never southern syrian province of there are preparing for possible offensive by government forces the area is mostly controlled by opposition groups the u.s. is warning of a strong response if government troops attack international and regional powerhouse holding talks to try to avoid a wider conflict then how to joins us now live from beirut right the focus now on what the expectations that. well there have been behind the scenes
1:20 pm
negotiations for quite some time now involving international and regional players the united states russia jordan israel iran and to a lesser extent of course the syrian government we just heard the russian foreign minister lavrov say that the syrian army should be the only force present at that border the southern corner of syria borders israel and jordan so he is really this is a view shared by both jordan and israel they do not want to see iranian troops or iranian allied militiamen close to their borders so these behind the scenes that goes haitians continue to prevent the possibility of an all out offensive already rebel factions on the ground preparing for this possibility and the pro-government media really beating the drums of war posting videos of troops heading to the front lines in the syrian government helicopters dropping leaflets warning warning rebels that they should surrender but like i mentioned these international regional powers are
1:21 pm
trying to find some sort of an arrangement that will satisfy all parties because any military offensive in this area risks drawing in regional powers and this could become a wider conflict and we always hear about how the government has been successful international forces in fighting i felt and yet we just heard of another i still a talk what happened there. yes the government saying that they have been victorious they cleared damascus and its countryside from rebels but the fight against i still still continues in the east of the country i still lost a lot of territory over recent years but they still control pockets of territory close to the border with iraq and there was a major battle and a major attack targeting pro-government forces including russian troops according to the russian defense ministry for russian soldiers were killed so this threat against i still the threat that i suppose is excuse me continues. thank you for

1:31 pm
because you watching al-jazeera mind of our top stories this hour at next month's meeting in singapore between u.s. president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un may still go ahead and south korea has suggested that president moon in may also take part at some point the u.s. delegation is in north korea while a team from the north is in china on its way to singapore. italy's presidents go. to reveal his new interim prime minister will be the former prime minister decepticon to step down on sunday after talks to form a government collapsed the president scuttled a bid to form a euro skeptic coalition by rejecting their choice for economy minister and that
1:32 pm
has led to calls for the president's impeachment. colombia said for run a voter elect a new president after sunday's election produced no clear winner conservative duke a critic critique of the far peace deal got thirty nine percent of the vote he'll face left wing challenger the star of a petrol in three weeks. the brazilian government has lowered the price of diesel fuel in an effort. a week long strike by truck drivers the drivers of mounted hundreds of blockades on roads to protest higher operating costs that's caused shortages of basic goods and medical supplies around the country the government reached an agreement with the unions last week but some truckers remained on strike . during twenty keane the government increased the price of petrol by more than twenty five percent and now it's offering a ten percent discount it forgets that the trucker is not ignorant anymore we want at least the price on the station to have

a significant reduction for the government to show good sense and goodwill rwanda may soon lose some of its trade benefits with the u.s. because of a dispute over secondhand clothes that started when rwanda raised tariffs on used american clothes to protect its garment industry the u.s. responded by threatening to pull one does judy free access to some of its products that benefit is set to expire on monday uganda tanzania and kenya tried to raise entire of solve their own but back down after the us threatened the trade access that it can such as a nairobi based investment adviser and chief executive of rich management he says africa's become a dumping ground for cheap goods from other countries. but if we're going to develop our industries we simply cannot compete against this deluge of cheap clothes i think president got me this is one individual who's not going to be rolled over in this particular situation and he's going to make
1:34 pm
a stand and this is an attempt by africa to get leverage on the value chain it's an attempt to develop industry it's an attempt to industrialize and essentially you know we've seen all our industries although doubt one of the classic examples is actually textile manufacturing which is now being addressed in east africa and i think it's important that we look at things holistically and if we're going to look at it holistically we can't all about the industrialization of africa on one hand and then be dumping africa with all kinds of of goods and in this case in the case of used clothes so i think he has to stand he is the president of the african union and absolutely we got to draw a line in the sand somewhere and this is the right line to be drawn i think we have a very transactional government in the u.s. they're looking at it entirely through the prism of of u.s. national interest the definition of which is quite strange at times it seems
1:35 pm
extremely transactional i don't think trump who looks at the continent in the same way previous administrations did and previous administrations were trying to lend a helping hand we're trying to create jobs within the continent that was the silver bullet that i go it was meant to be all about we've got enormous demographics people called it a demographic dividend but it's not going to be a demographic dividend in less we create jobs and what we have seen is in tech cells in particular there is an enormous opportunity to employ our people but we're not going to be able to employ anyone if we allow this to continue in the way it is . greece's economic crisis may be over but life is still difficult for many people the country received the largest sovereign loan in history to prevent bankruptcy but workers also received a large pay cut they've seen their incomes for by fifteen percent during the eight year economic crisis john threw up at us reports from athens. several times

1:37 pm
of other reforms. while salary cuts should have led to a cut in the prices of products and services they didn't because part of markets are to a great extent monopolies are all examples we have a large number of multinationals operating in this country which didn't lower the cost of their products they benefited from the salary cuts but they didn't become more competitive. half of all new jobs a part time or seasonal and that still leaves twenty percent of workers unemployed around a million greeks and there is so much under employment the labor institute greece's leading employment think tank says the real jobless total is closer to twenty seven percent but the worst effect of the crisis is loss of income the dramatic drop in incomes has created a class of working poor the risk of poverty has doubled during the crisis to thirty five percent of the population that's a rate unmatched anywhere in western europe and it is twice as high among working age adults and the children who depend on them as this is among pensioners many
