1:01 pm
and u.n. aid organizations discuss the plight of millions of people displaced by the war in syria. i'm joined again with the day sport it's all even in the stanley cup finals as the washington capitals edge out the baker's golden knights in game two of the series i'll have all the action later this news out. there rusher appears to be trying to position itself as a major player in any of the developments with north korea and the expected talks with the united states the foreign minister sergei leavitt off is n.p.r. news adding he's met leader kim jong il and he told kim that russia wants peace and progress on the korean peninsula whilst also inviting him to moscow at the request of president putin. it is absolutely obvious that starting any discussion of the
1:02 pm
nuclear problem and all other programs on the korean peninsula they cannot be complete without repealing all sanctions on north korea how that will go ahead will be a question of the skill of the negotiators but it cannot be done in one sitting one cannot provide denuclearization in one sitting so of course there must be several stages and in every stage there must be a two way road. all right wing go live to our correspondent rob mcbride he's in the south korean capital seoul and clearly russia wanting to get in only at wanting its voice to be heard in these negotiations that could have such profound change for the korean peninsula and wider afield. that's right marty's or gay lover of we are told is the most senior russian official to meet with kim jong un since kim came to power he delivered as you said there this invitation to come to moscow for what is an increasingly busy summit itinerary for kim and this came after holding talks between lavrov and his north korean counterpart about the upcoming summit and as
1:03 pm
you said they're very much taking the side of north korea when it comes to the whole question of sanctions that the united states international community must consider economic aid economic help or relief from these sanctions at a very early point in any deliberations over denuclearization that as he put it the denuclearization cannot come in one sitting the united states will probably not be very happy to hear this from the russians this support but i think russia rather like china feels as though it has to exert its influence over this whole process that it can't be seen to be sidelined given their respective dominant positions in this part of the world that this is a recognition of that diplomatic standing a lover of also talked about economic projects that he has in mind for this part of the world about trilateral economic cooperation between russia and the two careers
1:04 pm
such as the joining up of railway railway lines also the building of a pipeline in the korean peninsula but obviously all of these projects which would help russia in developing its russian far east all dependent martin on a successful summit outcome in singapore and indeed flipping forward now to events in new york later on today that says day the senior emissary from pyongyang meeting with the u.s. top diplomat the secretary of state and today they really start to outline their positions. that's right this follows on of course by some of the ground work that has been done here in korea and also down in singapore we have a u.s. team here in seoul that has been meeting with their north korean counterparts at the truce village in panmunjom interestingly today thursday they have not been seen leaving their hotel i think it's fair to speculate that they are waiting to see
1:05 pm
what is the outcome of those all crucial all important talks between kim young troll the main emissary from north korea with the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei zero in new york talks that begin in a couple of hours from now as my colleague james bays now reports. 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 was secretary of state mike pump is meeting general kim at the white house
1:06 pm
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 have 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 zero
1:07 pm
new york. and just to add to an increasingly busy talks time table south korean officials here in seoul are getting ready for talks with the north korean counterparts friday at the truce village in pam and john this resume that picks up on the into korean dialogue which of course was agreed upon by the summit between the north korean and south korean leaders all those days ago the end of april in what is a diplomatic phenomenon that has many moving parts martin rob thanks for that well we'll have one more voice now on this whole issue with the u.s. north korea summit we've been speaking to tongue our who is a fellow with the nuclear policy program at the carnegie cian center for global policy and he says that the u.s. and north korea are still poles apart. there is still a major gap between the positions of united states and north korea north korea has
1:08 pm
no plan to immediately surrender to nuclear weapons but the u.s. is asking for an immediate and comprehensive verifiable you reverse bow denuclearization of north korea these two have a lot of work to do before during the twelve to figure out a basic common ground on the nuclear issue so basically my understanding of the north korean position is they wanted 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 stretch of 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
1:09 pm
are willing to offer a very idealistic and empty political commitment to the eventual goal of the transition but i doubt that you want. in the near term future right to madrid now and spanish m.p.'s are debating a no confidence motion against their prime minister mariano rajoy after twenty nine people linked to his ruling people's party would jailed for corruption the main opposition party the socialist is leading the charge to remove the holy from office it says that he's lost credibility a court ruled that former people's party officials took bribes to fund election campaigns and exchange for lucrative public contracts me fucker is our correspondent in madrid. one hundred seventy six m.p.'s here at the three hundred fifty seat congress need to support a vote of no confidence in prime minister mariano rajoy for the motion to pass it's
1:10 pm
all being spearheaded by the opposition socialist party and its leader paid for sanchez with the socialists come to this alone so they're looking for help from other political parties here including the far left by demos party who have indicated that they would indeed support base motion the socialists of also reached out to see other than off the citizens party for help to have suggested that they would back it too but not the possibility of petro sanchez replacing mariano as prime minister here see it on else seem more interested in pushing for new elections later on in the year primarily because they're doing very very well in the polls at the moment this could all well boil down to support from some of the smaller policies including the basque nationalist party that of the moment are trying to work out whether or not they would back this motion going forward but mariano rajoy is a political survivor he has survived a previous no confidence votes against him during his time as prime minister he's
1:11 pm
accused the political opposition here of really seizing the moment to undermine him his government and his leadership going forward it boils down to three different scenarios for a boy could well resign we could well see a situation where the no confidence vote is successful meaning that we could see a new government a new prime minister here in spain possibly by the end of the week or if the no confidence vote fails something other than a loss of both promise to keep up the pressure on marianna who are going forward to keep on pushing for new elections before the end of the year here in spain pressure is most certainly mounting on the prime minister at the moment. now to italy where the president has granted the two populous parties more time to try to form a government in an effort to avoid another election the leader of the five star movement has suggested a compromise that could end months of political deadlock his party has been trying
1:12 pm
to strike a deal with the far right leaning the two parties won the most seats in the elections in march their candidate for finance minister that was rejected by the president on sunday and that calls the collapse of the initial coalition agreement is been without a working government for three months now. that u.n. agencies have been missing in jordan to talk about the plight of millions of syrian refugees who are caught up in the world's largest crisis of its kind seven years of war has forced more than five and a half million people out of their country and seven million all internally displaced within the borders of syria itself six hundred thousand children they're not in school and the u.n. says the situation is dire and they desperately need more funding well at least a million of those refugees are in lebanon zina holders' our correspondent in the lebanese capital beirut and she's joining us now and this is the real crux of the
1:13 pm
problem isn't that lebanon is itself a small red said the struggling economy and it is bearing the burden of a million extra people and it's almost impossible really for them to manage. yes and that million is the number registered with the united nations but estimates suggest up to one point five million syrians are in lebanon the lebanese government has repeatedly appealed to the international community for help saying that it is causing social tensions in the country because many of those syrians have taken the jobs from the lebanese we heard from the different u.n. agencies responsible for humanitarian work in syria. we'll for more money saying if you do not give us this money then we have to cut our programs are services and millions and millions of syrians require aid to seven million internally displaced in recent months alone tens of thousands were forced from their homes as
1:14 pm
a result of the so-called surrender deals when the rebels give up territory to the government and these people are bussed to the north western province of their bus there with nothing and they have no jobs so these people rely on aid and it's not just the seven million internally displaced have five point five million in neighboring countries and like you mentioned lebanon is struggling so the u.n. asking for help in telling the international community really it is cheaper to feed a syrian in syria cost fifty cents a day in europe it costs fifty euros a day almost trying to tell you know the west be careful these people might try to make their way to europe and the really crushingly depressing element of this is and there it is of course that it's not just this generation of syrians that are going to be really suffering it is the next generation as well we're looking at how many six hundred thousand kids who are not even attending school at this stage.
1:15 pm
know six hundred thousand kids not attending schools according to the united nations more than half a million children have been born in exile in the past seven years since this conflict began half a million children never never saw their homes so yes it is the future the next generation what is going to happen to them you just go to any informal camp in lebanon because there are no official camps here the lebanese government doesn't want to encourage them to stay all you see are children running around playing all day long they don't go to school and some of them are given the opportunity to attend lebanese school but it's just not there aren't enough places so yes the situation is dire the fighting mayhaps this sided but there is no political solution to this crisis and the humanitarian crisis continues to rise thank you for that the host of them live in beirut. now it is currently the muslim holy month of ramadan that's a time for contemplation for celebration and for charity the families in yemen are

1:24 pm
holy sites both christian and muslim and many go on a pilgrimage to the mosque which is considered the third holiest place in islam so notification by the israel border protection department that indonesians are not allowed to enter israel after june nine came to many here as a shock cannot threaten us or them like more and more indonesians are visiting the holy sites because we finally had easy access and got much safer than years ago so we're very sad that this is happening. the reason for this ban is still not fully clear but according to media reports from its route it came after in the media decided to suspend the plant allow tourists from israel to enter indonesia which would have been a historical move the suspension according to this reports came after indonesia condemn violence recently in gaza killing tens of palestinians by israeli soldiers the foreign ministry here in jakarta has strongly denied it was ever such
1:25 pm
a plan to allow israeli tourists to enter the country although both countries don't have formal ties trade is on the increase between indonesia and israel and has also been sick with talks to improve the ties between the two countries the current diplomatic spat has brought all these are frozen back to square one leaving many here in indonesia i wonder if and when they can go back to israel to visit the holy sites. now to south africa and the controversial issue of land the ruling a.n.c. party promised twenty two years ago at the end of apartheid to give black people the land there was by white farmers but almost twenty thousand south africans still waiting for those promises to be kept malcolm where purports. it was born here one hundred and four years ago his parents worked without pay for a white farmer who grabbed this land pietermaritzburg in south africa a few decades before he was born. these stones mark where he buried them. in

1:28 pm
outstanding applications are rather processed it may take years example as i will be around for many more his ancestors shed this land communally all he wants before he dies is to own a tiny part of it malcolm webb al-jazeera near pietermaritzburg south africa everyone will have the weather in just a little while also coming up here on the al-jazeera news out the un refugee agency warns it's got less than a third of the money it needs to support millions of refugees. hollywood producer harvey weinstein is indicted on charges of rape in new york. and the n.b.a. finals begin later we'll hear from le bron james as his cavs take on the warriors that's all coming up with jack and install.

1:30 pm
this you go on through the next twenty four hours you can see that the general drift of the showers is further north perhaps a little further a so will turn increasingly muggy over towards berlin for example as we go on through friday price skies come back in behind us the chance of what is to showers rotating into northern parts of spain having said that clear conditions we go on into saturday well and colder for berlin. so whether i can turn our ways. it would remove any vestige of doubt from shirking manx that israel has come to stay a people dispossessed a state established whatever i was able to do in palestine drive the great international peace organization the united nations a momentous event which lies at the heart of ongoing conflict to this day seventy years on al-jazeera tells the history of what palestinians call the catastrophe.
1:31 pm
and the. u.s. and british companies have announced the biggest discovery of natural gas in west africa but what to do with these untapped natural resources is already a source of heated debate nothing much has changed they still spend most of their days looking forward to for the dry river beds like this one five years on the syrians still feel battered or even those who managed to escape their country have been truly unable to escape the war. take a look at the top stories here in the. russia trying to position itself as
1:32 pm
a player in any developments with north korea and the expected summit with the united states. the foreign minister has met kim jong un in pyongyang and he invited him to last at the request of president putin. the prime minister mariano rajoy after twenty nine people linked to his ruling party jailed for corruption the main opposition socialist party says he has lost credibility. u.n. agency is meeting in jordan to discuss the plight of millions of syrians called up in the world's largest refugee crisis seven years of war has four five and a half million people to flee the country seven million are internally displaced. now the u.n. h.c.r. that's the refugee agency of the u.n. has warned that it's far short of the funding it needs to support the millions of refugees the agency has received less than the third of what it requested from
1:33 pm
donors in twenty eighteen the money is meant to help more than nine million people with food shelter and education five and a half million of them a syrian refugees the programs in jordan and lebanon are particularly low on funding even though they have more refugees per capita than almost anywhere else without more funding the u.n. warns one point four million refugees will see their food rations go down with complete cuts in egypt lebanon and jordan by august and education cuts could for students to drop out making them vulnerable to early marriages and child labor we can speak to rula amin now who's senior communications advisor at u.n.h. c.r. and she's joining us from the jordanian capital amman thank you very much indeed. i understand and i think many of us understand the shortfall that u.n.h.c.r. as well as other agencies have in terms of their funding what is u.n.h.c.r.
1:34 pm
doing to sharpen up the message because clearly it's not working just appealing to the to the humanitarian nature of many countries. that is true but unfortunately the humanitarian agencies cannot force these donors to put more money they can try to help them make these decisions and the line is there's enough money put into making these sward especially the war in syria there should be some money put to help those who are suffering by it the u.n. secretary general used a figure and he said that one point seven trillion dollars are spent have been spent last year on arms and arming that is almost eight hundred times what is needed to help all those who need help in the world so if there is enough money to keep fueling the war in syria there should be enough money to help those refugees and displaced people who are suffering the most out of it isn't it time for for
1:35 pm
agencies like you in asia are to start getting getting tough to name and shame because the pledge is a quite often made aren't they but they're actually not followed through on what about the rich countries this is this is ramadan this is a time of giving a time of charity what about the wealthy gulf countries for instance. you know we try not to name and shame because we are still grateful for all the donation that has been made throughout the past eight years over thirteen billion dollars have been poured into the human a third one humanitarian world to help the refugees and the host communities who also need help in order to carry this burden however this is not enough and that's our line we need more we're very grateful to have what had been given but we need more because we what we need what we are saying is the impact cannot be looked at as if it's just short term it's not about just not meeting the humanitarian needs
1:36 pm
that the refugees need now it's not about just giving them enough food now it's about the long term impact you know when a family a refugee family cannot have enough money to spend it's kids to school in five years we're having a whole generation who have not been to school and even with the figures i'll give you a figure for example in lebanon about sixty percent of children who are at the age of elementary school grades they do go to school however when you go to secondary and higher school education only five percent of refugee children are in gold at this stage and that's a major risk to the future and to the future of syria and the region. i mean thank you very much indeed. now ukraine is being criticized by russia and media watchdogs for faking the murder of an anti kremlin journalist. who was reported to have been killed in kiev but it turned out later that he was actually alive and well any made an appearance at
1:37 pm

1:38 pm
journalist was reportedly found with fatal gunshot wounds to the back tributes and obituaries mourned his death. the secret was reveals live on t.v. colleagues at the channel where he works reacted with joy and tears of relief. russia has denied any role in the story and accused kiev of using it as propaganda but russia has where ukraine security chiefs allege the murder prosser ridge native . fled his home country last year after a career as an anti putin voice culminated in a state backed media campaign against him numbers of. we reported that in order to fulfill the cynical plan special services of the russian federation recruited a ukrainian citizen the first letter of his name is g. he was commissioned to find perpetrators of this brutal murder for financial reward in order to fulfill the assignment from the russian special services citizen g
1:39 pm
offered his acquaintance to commit a terrorist act and to murder russian journalist. for thirty thousand dollars. ukraine's secret service the s.b.u. showed video allegedly this citizen g. being arrested on the streets and they say that the only one in danger thirty more people were being targeted. we're going to talk to rory live from moscow and the morning after. this spectacular stunt by the. special services security might have had unintended consequence. yeah i'm going through some of the reaction. been put out there by groups like the zero s c the organization for security and cooperation in europe now the representative for the freedom of media haarlem desir says that he's relieved that
1:40 pm
arkady janko is alive but he says i deplore the decision to spread false information on the life of a journalist is the duty of the state to provide correct information to the public and this from the committee to protect journalists as well we are greatly relieved that is alive at the same time this extreme action by the ukrainian authorities has the potential to undermine public trust in journalists and outrage when they are killed so basically these reactions are kind of raising two links but slightly different points one is operational if the state has lied about the death of a journalist can we believe them when they talk about other things related to this case can we believe them when they say that it was russia that was responsible for this alleged plot against because life and the committee to protect journalists kind of raised the point of. if this kind of thing happens then what happens the
1:41 pm
next time. a journalist is actually properly kills that is a journalist is discovered in a pool of his own blood his or her own blood it's happened many times before particularly in the the russian speaking world you can talk about anna politkovskaya you can talk about pavel sheremet two of the more well known now well known names but the list is long if this kind of thing can happen then the next time someone does actually die is this not an opportunity for the present to say aha well how do we know that this person really is dead could this not be fake news i'm that's the kind of debates that's raging at the moment is raging on twitter it's being raised by what i was ations like the o.s.c. and the committee to protect journalists and it's unfortunate i think that we might have to wait until the next murder for us to actually work out whether these concerns are real or whether this is just a storm in a teacup yeah really interesting thank you very much roy each others live in moscow
