tampering in international cricket. hello thank you for joining us intense diplomatic activity is raising expectations that a planned summit between u.s. president donald trump and the north korean leader kim jong un may still go ahead the bilateral talks could become trilateral with the south korean president and also joining in a u.s. delegation is in north korea while a team from pyongyang is heading to singapore where the historic meeting is set to take place andrew thomas has more now from seoul. what a difference one frenetic weekend can make and i was like it's full steam ahead for a summit in singapore on june twelfth as originally planned has been the u.s. delegation inside north korea on monday advice on kim south korean born but the u.s. ambassador to the philippines he's been ambassador here in seoul in the past though
he was very much involved in the six nation talks that took place while president bush was in office later president obama he knows the issue backwards he's been meeting with north korea's vice foreign minister chase on he again fluent english speaker she knows this issue backwards from a north korean point of view meanwhile in singapore over the coming days they'll be u.s. delegation and a north korean delegation meeting to discuss the logistics security arrangements protocol that's all happening simle time in your sleep and if there is a summit on june the twelfth will president moon of south korea be there the blue house the presidential palace here in seoul said that though we're working on plans for president moon to be in singapore probably not for the beginning of the bilateral but it goes well between president trump and kim jong un if indeed it happens and president moon montjoy in at a later stage possibly minutes hours later but in singapore as well has been crucial to getting the other two leaders together and he would like a seat at the table while our white house correspondent kimberly halkett is life
for a say in washington d.c. so this is the you know was going to happen that it's not going to happen that it might happen again you know the meeting at the may or may not be it doesn't seem like the top administration has learned the lesson that maybe it's worth waiting and then having the meeting before i guess getting the speculation go wrong again. well the administration my understand that but the president often doesn't listen to the advice of his staff and when he's eager to do something he doesn't seem to be able to be quiet about it and that's why i think we saw the tweet over the weekend where he certainly suggested strongly that this could be back on and that the sort of leverage that could be used is this sort of opportunity of investment something that the north korean leader we are told is very much interested in having the united states help in exchange for denuclearization this bringing out of the shadows the end of the street financial sanctions so that's really sort of the
leverage that the united states has of the incentive if you will to denuclearize presumably what donald trump is hoping to be able to offer the north korean leader but the problem seems to be the issue of denuclearization what does that mean it means different things to the united states than it does to north korea spare ticket literally when it comes to the pace of denuclearize ation now where do things stand well right now it is a holiday in the united states the federal government closed many americans see this is the official weekend for kicking off the summer holidays but also it's a time to remember america's veterans and also war dead so the president is at arlington national cemetery where he has laid a wreath he's accompanied by his secretary of defense as well as his press secretary so they're not working overtly at least on the potential upcoming summit that may or may not take place but certainly we get the sense that the there is an intense effort behind the scenes to make this happen there are two teams that are
working actively as our correspondent suggested there is not only the top diplomat to the philippines who is very familiar with this file from negotiating under during the six party talks and the two thousand but also there is a team on the ground handling logistics and singapore working very hard to try and make this happen if the president feels the climate has changed enough that he can sit down with the north korean leader and we can with the latest from washington kimberly thank you. italy's president has appointed an interim prime minister after weeks of talks failed to produce a government and sparked a political crisis can look at that a leader who is a former international monetary fund official has been tasked with passing the country's budget and planning fresh elections it comes after president said vetoed
the choice of a euro skeptic politician as economy minister angering the two populous parties who wanted to form a coalition government john hope has more. political convulsions in italy beat the new prime minister designate of political figures but a former international monetary fund official. must underline that the government will maintain a neutrality a total neutrality with respect to the electoral debate i will not be a candidate for the next elections and a similar commitment from the members of the government. must now come up with a workable list of ministers but he's unlikely to survive a confidence vote in a parliament stacked against him so the new government will likely become a lame duck interim government until fresh elections in the autumn on the weekend president sergio rejected the euro skeptic finance minister proposed by the five
star movement northern league coalition dashing their hopes of becoming europe's first far right populist government they've been calls for mass protests and the president's impeachment as head of state the latter seems constitutionally unlikely but it's a nasty turn that sets the scene for a potentially ugly standoff we are going to see throughout the next three. years and the overarching the people versus the. establishment that with the head of state for the first time becoming the main target of the entire campaign there's also the economy to worry about italy's cost of borrowing is rising with the political uncertainty if the country's sky high debt were to become unserviceable then real crisis would arrive in the euro zone's third largest economy add to that a debate that will only grow louder perhaps angrier now about italy's membership of
the eurozone as the nationalist northern league and anti establishment five star movement vie for an even bigger slice of the next electoral pine. carlo carter really did his best to calm the waters there. in the past few days tensions have increased on the financial markets you know that the spread has increased but. still growing and the budget remains under control i can assure you that a government. will guarantee a prudent. public accounts. in italy political instability is a fact of life so they'll be little surprise about these twists and turns but no less anxiety over the outcome. al-jazeera. the syrian government says they will continue fighting rebels despite u.s. warnings against a possible offensive in the province there are which is the southern province mostly controlled by opposition groups is close to the volatile area of these
