the war in syria. the summit between donald trump and kim jong un still isn't officially on preparations for it certainly are chemist right hand man arrived in new york on wednesday and had dinner with the u.s. secretary of state while russian foreign minister sergei lavrov as and pyongyang for talks are diplomatic editor james bays reports from new york. arriving in the united states the personal emissary of kim jong un here for crucial negotiations which will decide the fate of the on again off again summit between his leader and president trump. general kim yong schol is staying in this hotel close to the u.n. for just two days the planned date of the summit in singapore now less than two weeks away hence the hectic diplomacy with meetings between the north koreans and the u.s.
in singapore at the demilitarized zone between north and south korea and here in new york where secretary of state mike pump is meeting general kim at the white house they say it's president trump will make the final determination on whether the summit goes ahead as their conversation is going to be focused on denuclearization of the peninsula that's what these ongoing conversations taking place now will be centered on as well as this summit that will take place in singapore and we're going to continue it as long as that is part of the discussion we're going to continue to shoot for the june twelfth it was evening in new york at this apartment complex with the secretary of state and general kim had their first meeting of this trip although they already know each other from the two occasions this year when pump aoe visited pyongyang the dinner the first in a series of meetings between the two men took place in a residence owned by the u.s.
mission to the united nations presumably it was chosen because it is secure a place where the two men can discuss all the secrets of north korea's nuclear program if of course general kim is prepared to divulge them james pays out jazeera new york and roman pride has more on the russian foreign minister visit to north korea from seoul. another developing dimension in this flurry of diplomatic activity the russians now seemingly getting more involved with a visit by russian foreign minister sergei lavrov to pyongyang and a meeting with his north korean counterpart he emerged afterwards to make a statement that the russians believe that there can be no full resolution of the north korean nuclear problem without there being a relief of sanctions the russian point being that the denuclearization process is so complex and so lengthy that north korea would only embark on it if it has some
guarantees of getting economic relief and a lifting of these sanctions the u.s. will not be happy by this russian position that seems to support the north korean position but russia rather like china feels that it can't be left out of these international possibly historic events that given their position in the region they should have some involvement and are worried about being sidelined the russians like the chinese also believe that they have a vested economic interest in a stable korean peninsula lavrov said that russia is interested in pursuing trilateral economic projects with the two koreas such as the development of railways and possible pipeline running through the korean peninsula all projects which are pending upon a successful june twelfth summit in singapore not angeles ahead of
a day nuclear policy at the carnegie center for global policy and he has bought it signed the shi'a commitment to the talks and set up a botched their negotiating positions are still poles apart. there is still a major gap between the positions of the united states and north korea north korea has no plan to immediately surrender 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 june the twelve to figure out a basic common ground on the nuclear use so basically my understanding of the north korean position is they want to keep their core nuclear deterrent capability the spends so much time so much money into this program and the don't really trust the united states at all they want to retain their core nuclear deterrent capability
order to hedge against any future uncertainties the other words i think north korea wants to strachey this process of denuclearization for as long as possible the very i can now you magine them agreeing to a near term timetable or deadline to completely dismantle their nuclear weapons so they are willing to offer a very idealistic and empty political commitment to the eventual go of the transition but i doubt that you want to implement in the near term future. let's move on to other news now and spain's prime minister money on the whole is facing and i confidence vote in parliament on friday began a two day debate on his leadership on thursday the main opposition socialist party is leading the charge to have to step down as follows the jailing of twenty nine people linked to his people's party for corruption. has the latest from the dread.
well across the board the political opposition of accused. of undermining the health of the spanish economy convictions for corruption were handed down to dozens of people linked to his center right people's party among some of the most high profile figures to be charge was. the former treasurer of the p.p. party a former close ally of roy in the past who was sentenced to thirty three years in jail and fined two hundred fifty million dollars the party too has also been ordered to repay two hundred eighty five thousand dollars for perhaps directly or indirectly benefiting from some of these ill gotten gains. says he is determined to fight these allegations he's accused the opposition opposition of seizing the moment as it would undermine his political credibility and that of the polity as well. now u.n. agencies have been holding a briefing on the situation facing severe and refugees its seven years of conflict
has forced five and a half million civilians to leave creation the world's largest refugee crisis let's go now to our correspondent zain a hole there who is joining us live from beirut and the u.n. really highlighting the situation refugees and what's needed what's come out of the meeting so far. well the united nations is appealing for funds the various u.n. agencies saying that they just do not have the money to continue to provide services to these people millions and millions of syrians depend on aid to survive seven million internally displaced in syria i can tell you just in recent months the tens of thousands of people were forced from their homes as part of surrender deals with the government moved to the countryside the northwestern countryside of it live they live in tents they've left everything behind so they have no jobs so these people need aid to survive so seven million inside syria
united nations talking about five point five million refugees in neighboring countries lebanon jordan countries really which have been facing a lot of strain the government here appealing for help because it just cannot provide for these people and many syrians really have taken jobs the jobs from the lebanese causing a social tension so the united nations saying to the international community we do not have money and if you do not give us this money we cannot continue to provide services to those in need and while the u.n. are talking about the plight of refugees we've had the syrian president bashar assad talking about the war itself to russian media saying what's he been saying. well in one way or another he issued a stretch to the united states telling them that the americans should leave syria we know that approximately two thousand u.s.
servicemen are based in the north east of the country in an area under the control of the kurdish p.g. group he also gave a message to the syrian democratic forces that is the local allies the american america's local allies in the kurdish region telling them that if you do not hand over this area peacefully we are going to quote liberated by force threatening do night that states and telling them that they learn the lessons from iraq in one way or another he is telling them to expect an insurgency but using force is not going to be easy because this is going to involve international players there are american troops on the ground not far there are russian soldiers are iranian soldiers so it is quite difficult to see how they can use force without igniting a wider conflict but clearly the syrian president in that interview showing a lot of confidence in and reiterating that the syrian government is going to liberate in his words every inch of syrian soil but right now if he's going to
approach and live or die or the north east of the country it is going to involve international and regional players and i thank you very much for that for now the design to hold them live with all the nations developments from syria live and they vote thank you. national masa gunmen have killed at least three people protesting against president daniel ortega one demonstrations demanding he step down began in april more than eighty people have been killed leaving even some of the president's longtime supporters to question has leadership as manuel de paulo reports from managua. hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of managua in the largest anti-government protest in decades the demonstration was organized in solidarity with the mothers of students and peaceful demonstrators who have been killed by police and pro-government militias since the start of a nationwide political crisis on april eighteenth get em up at their oh yeah we want this government to have a conscience and stop killing our gets. it's mother's day and we get i won but

a statement on behalf of the council condemning rocket attacks from gaza into israel and in fact many council members did condemn those attacks but while the united states put all the blame for violence in the region on the palestinian leadership others like the united kingdom pointed out the desperate situation of the palestinian people is playing a part restrictions on movement lack of access to electricity water and jobs is all contributing to the tension and kuwait who is calling for an international protection force to ensure the safety of palestinian civilians blocked a formal statement from being issued on behalf of the council but. as long as this occupation continues the palestinian people have the legitimate right to fight it and to defend their aspirations and their dream of independence and a dignified and free life from her let them look at the united states had this reaction the people of gaza do not need protection from an external source the
people of gaza need protection from hamas it is the actions of hamas that are putting gaza and grave danger hamas is indiscriminate attacks against israel inevitably bring a response. the u.n. special coordinator for middle east peace nicole i'm a law warned that further escalation an all out war remain a risk and he laid out some basic steps to prevent that from happening focusing on humanitarian needs and supporting the egyptian reconciliation process and he ended with a message directly to the people of gaza we hear your plight and suffering he said and we will do all that we can to ensure that you have a future beyond mere survival. and israel has issued a new rule to ban tourists from indication passports from entering the country the decision is in retaliation for jakarta suspending visas for israelis in the aftermath of the violence in gaza and recent weeks into the show has strongly
