8:19 am
june the basic fact is there is still a major gap between the positions of the united states and north korea north korea has no plan to immediately surrenders to nuclear weapons but the us is asking for an immediate and comprehensive verifiable you reversible denuclearization of north korea these two have a lot of work to do before during the two of us to figure out a basic common ground on the nuclear issue so what do you think the north korean idea or version of denuclearization would look like is it just over a longer period so basically my understanding of the north korean position is they wanted to keep their core nuclear deterrent capability the spend so much time so much money into this program and the don't really trust the united states at all they want to
8:20 am
retain their core nuclear deterrent capability in order to hedge against any future uncertainties the other words i think north korea wants to strachey's this process of denuclearization for as long as possible the very i can now you magine them agreeing to a near term timetable or line to completely dismantle their nuclear weapons so they are willing to offer a very are idealistic and empty political commitment to the eventual go of digitization but i doubt the one to implement them in the near term future talk a little more about some of the players involved because you got the north koreans in new york at the moment we've got russia's foreign minister in north korea as well singapore is going to host that would be summit the that the player i'm not seeing at the moment is china and china is massively important when it comes to north korea isn't it. i do believe
8:21 am
though china has helped implementing comprehensive economic sanctions to encourage north korea to the negotiating table china is still paying a very important role in consulting with north korea calling and we coordinating with north korea hard to go forward in the nuclear negotiation i think china has made interest in seeing a positive result of this summit china wants to see a better political relationship between washington and pyongyang because that would help create an environment in which china can continue is engaging many ways north korea china wants to help north korea grow its economy once help the north korea to conduct its strategic transition from an isolated to pariah state into a more normal and a more open country the current
8:22 am
a north korean leader has demonstrated that ambition and china wants to help from the chinese perspective that's the most effective way to address north korea paranoia and in the long run make north korea less dependent on nuclear weapons one quick final question for you and it's the one none of us can answer but i'm still going to ask you do you think this summit will go ahead i think there is strong and clear political commitment on both sides to having these made own time in the even though there is still major substantive issues for them to work they still face a major gap in their respective positions but i think it is more than a fifty fifty chance that this summit to will take place on time in singapore more than fifty fifty ok tong's our pleasure talking to you thank you. the brazilian oil workers have walked off the job for seventy two hours just as
