no you won't go on a nice raid on al jazeera. another seat at the table for donald meeting with kim jong un the south korean president may join them. hello i'm tutors and this is al jazeera live from london also coming up and you can take a prime minister is chosen as the political crisis in its elite deepens. a warning that lines could be a risk from sub tropical storm alberto in the u.s. and spider-man becomes france's a u.s. citizen the refugee held as a hero after saving a child dangling from a fourth floor balcony.
diplomatic activity is intensifying ahead of a planned summit between u.s. president will trump north korean leader kim jong il room and the bilateral talks could become trilateral with the south korean president in joining them a u.s. delegation is in north korea while a team from pyongyang is heading to singapore where the historic meeting is due to take place under thomas has more from so. what a difference one frenetic weekend can make and now looks 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 that vice 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 all happening simle tiny asleep and if there is a summits 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 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. white house correspondent kimberly halkett is live for us in washington d.c. so ken lay rumors that the south korean president may well join this summit how would he change the dynamic think. well
certainly the south korean president when he was here in washington just in the last couple of weeks was on as essentially a salvage mission to make sure that this summit went ahead days later of course donald trump canceling that summit with the stroke of a pen and a letter to the north korean leader but say actually what he has been doing behind the scenes all of this time is because of his very strong and favorable relationship with donald trump he has in essence been the glue to try and keep all of this together you remember of course the very warm sort of reception that he got around the world after the success of the olympic games that in many ways spurned where we are now in terms of the progression of the warming of relations the fact that we're even at this point where we are as you know and are able to talk about
the fact that there would potentially be these talks on june the twelfth so using that history moving forward moving ahead his presence potentially could again kind of miss sides some of the rough edges that we know still exist between donald trump and the north korean leader kim jong un specifically when it comes to denuclearize ation there has been a understanding that in fact the north korean leader is ready to commit to that for the korean peninsula something that would very much be in the interest of the south korean president and also the entire world but the definitions of denuclearization the two sides very far apart so this is where south korea comes in and trying to bring those sides together whether it's immediate verifiable whether it has financial incentives attached this is the role that many believe that the south korean president could play as a part of those talks should they become trilateral instead of bilateral the other issue that's very important is the issue of
a security guarantee the issue of trust with the united states. not entirely confident but certainly the south korean president able to try and underscore that when perhaps there may be a feeling of nervousness on the north korean side great to get your thoughts can really help him i live for us in washington d.c. . it's allays president has appointed an interim prime minister after weeks of talks failed to produce a government and sparked a political crisis. who is a former international monetary fund official has been tasked with passing the country's budget and planning fresh elections jonah how has more. political convulsions in italy beat the new prime minister designate not a political figure but a former international monetary fund official carlo quarter really.
stunned to learn that the government will maintain an atrocity a total neutrality with respect to the electoral debates about the quarterly 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. last night was the darkest hour in italy's democracy president matter rather chose to ignore his constitutional prerogatives and prevent from power political force the five star movement which received eleven million votes have been calls for mass protests around 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 months is the overarching the people versus the pots or so the establishment there with the head of state for the first time becoming the main. target 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 by for an even bigger slice of the next electoral part i. really did his best to calm the waters. 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. the syrian government says they will continue fighting rebels despite u.s. warnings against a possible offensive province. southern province mostly controlled by opposition groups is close to the volatile area of the israeli occupied golan heights the u.s. comments come as israel warns it will not tolerate a permanent iranian military presence in syria russia has reemphasized its support for the syrian government. the russian foreign minister sergei
lavrov saying that the syrian army should be the only force present at the southern border syria southern border russia making clear its position as well we understand behind the scenes negotiations continue between international and regional players to find some sort of an arrangement for the future of the provinces in the southern and southwestern syria. the syrian government as of late really the government they've been beating the drums of war saying that they have been sending troops to the front lines dropping leaflets from government helicopters telling rebels to surrender so the syrian government making clear that that is their next target but that is different from other areas because there are international regional players involved the united states israel jordan because of its geo strategic location jordan and israel for example they both do not want to
see iranian troops or iranian allied troops on their borders so if there is any arrangement or any deal that it will definitely not involve iranian troops taking part in any battle but we understand is what they're trying to do is reach some sort of an arrangement whereby the rebels decide to lay down their arms and to surrender those who want to leave to the rebel controlled problems of it live in the northwest will be able to do so but state authority will return to this area jordan doesn't want to see any. escalation as well because it will create a refugee crisis it also wants to open its border crossing there which is really vital for trade so on growing international and regional negotiations behind the scenes to try to find a solution to this corner of syria what to do in this corner of syria to avoid a military military conflict that could bring in regional powers twelve soldiers from saudi arabia have been killed in yemen joining operations along the border this brings the total number of saudi casualties to over

a lot of reflecting the do and this place is about reflecting and i got to a point where i felt. a kind of lost faith in a lot of things that i recently believed in. but i. realize i still believe in our art in its that human essence and that's what we're trying to do as well as it was the impact that you know. from our continuous wars both the better happy life and the civilian population for artists and visitors like this marine who spent two tours in iraq and quit rather than serve a third the displays can offer catharsis after the trauma of war he want to tell yourself it was worth it it was worth the people i killed it was worth my friends being killed but at the end of the day i think a lot of veterans know that's not the case so how do you take something that's extremely negative in turn it into something that's positive i think art is one of
