4:01 pm
the champions league trophy with brown madrid for a third straight time the french mince that down as head coach of the spanish carve out tell you why later in the news our. affair says rory of diplomatic activity in various locations around the world all dealing with the possible summitry three north korea and the united states in north korea itself in south korea in singapore and in the united states high level meetings are taking place the most senior north korean official to set foot in the u.s. for eighteen years he's currently in new york his name kim yong cho and he's due to have a second round of talks with the secretary of state mike pompei or and that should pave the way for the summit to finally go ahead in singapore next month and as you can see in front of you this is
4:02 pm
a live shot this is where the meetings are taking place this is an apartment block and this and we'll find out a bit more specifically later on from jane's ways occurs with there you see kim jong you all just entering into that building might compare the secretary of state is jew there as well this is where we understand that the actual beginning of the nitty gritty is to take place this is where both sides are likely to start outlining exactly what their negotiating positions are and this is not going to be easy and as we were saying earlier the russians are now getting involved the foreign minister sergei lavrov he's in pyongyang he's already met leader kim jong il in the air and he told him that russia wants peace and progress on the peninsula and he also invited him to moscow this we understand at the request of president putin. to james frey's now a diplomatic editor he's in new york
4:03 pm
a manhattan and james was seen joan child just arrived at that location we haven't seen my comp a yet the. my pompei was first here he arrived about ten minutes before general kim who you saw the pictures from our camera moments ago arriving at this apartment block in midtown in manhattan on the east side of town near the east river very close to u.n. headquarters you may wonder why these two important leaders the two emissaries of the two leaders of the u.s. and north korea are meeting in an apartment block well it's actually a residence that is owned by the u.s. mission to the united nations currently on occupied because the senior diplomat who is going to take residence here it's only just been confirmed by the senate as the deputy ambassador to the u.n. for the u.s.
4:04 pm
department already very secure because it's a state department u.s. mission apartment a place that they can completely sweep and be sure that it's clear so they can discuss the most sensitive secrets of north korea's nuclear program of course that's part of the puzzle here is north korea actually coming clean about exactly what he's got the cia said you have a good idea but north korea needs to come clean and then of course the difficult discussions with the u.s. saying that all of that nuclear program needs to be eliminated straight away and remind us james why this meeting is not taking place in washington d.c. where there are going to be plenty of of of secure locations for this kind of amazing why is it taking place in meal. well i think the main reason is because the north koreans probably feel more comfortable in new york than they do in washington d.c. because remember these are two countries that don't have diplomatic relations there
4:05 pm
is no. north korean embassy in washington d.c. there is no u.s. embassy in pyongyang in fact the swedish the cost to u.s. interests in north korea but the north koreans totally are a member of the united nations so they have a functioning diplomatic mission here in new york with diplomats translates a star of an ambassador and of course a secure link to speak to pyongyang so that i suspect is the reason why the north koreans prefer to have this meeting in new york rather than washington and we're looking at the picture now the picture that will be beamed around the world and inspiring a certain amount of confidence of the two men shaking hands as they prepare to get down to business so give us an idea james as to how the how. this is likely to play out they've already had the meeting greet that had a what looked like a fairly convivial evening together having dinner but now they get down to the real
4:06 pm
hard work is this a matter of one lays out there that position on the table then the other one i mean how does it work. i missed we're not being given a lot a great deal of detail by the us about how this is working or any of the details at all they don't want to give us any of the details but i think it's pretty clear that both sides will be laying out their position the position of the u.s. is pretty clear they've made it clear u.s. officials again again be making clear in new york it's what nuclear experts call c.v.t. which is complete verifier of all irreversible denuclearize ation they want to see all of the nuclear program removed straight away from the north korean side they have a different view of that word denuclearization but also they will be asking the question they've asked for years which is if we got rid of our nuclear program what is to stop the u.s. getting rid of us so they will want security go guarantee some sort of nonaggression
4:07 pm
pact that they will want to negotiate i suspect the north koreans will not want the u.s. into very in other sensitive areas like human rights that clearly are big gaps between these two sides can they start to bridge them here can the u.s. get something here that convinces them that they can get something much bigger in singapore if they go there in in twelve days time because u.s. officials are saying if they go to singapore they want to do a deal that they hope could be described as historic right ok thanks for now james to james bays as editor keeping his eye across that meeting as it takes place in midtown manhattan new york now let's go to rob mcbride a correspondent who's in the south korean capital seoul and rob the americans no doubt will be slightly irritated won't they by the intervention by the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov who had something to say on his visit to pyongyang.
4:08 pm
absolutely sergey lavrov coming to pyongyang at a very timely point in this whole process he came expressing russia's full support for the into korean dialogue the dialogue between north korea and the united states wishing all of these negotiations well. obviously getting the impression that russia doesn't want to be left out of the action he came to also talking about a bright economic future for northeast asia should this peace process continue should there be permanent peace on the korean peninsula talking in particular about russia wanting to have tried lateral economic projects with the two careers such as linking up rail networks building a gas pipeline through the korean peninsula all not only to help the development of russia's far east but also to help the development of the korean peninsula but it's what he had to say martine about that about russia's apparent support for north
4:09 pm
korea when it comes to its sanctions position which will probably be most welcome to north korea's. this was kim jong un's first meeting with a senior russian diplomat since coming to power. another first in a diplomatic dance of increasing complexity. foreign minister sergei lavrov invited kim to add to his busy summit schedule and visit moscow but it was lavrov the parents' support for kim's position in readiness for his summit with u.s. president donald trump that will be the most welcome outcome for north korea lover of said north korea must get relief from sanctions and quickly. it is absolutely obvious that starting any discussion of the 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
4:10 pm
u.s. officials based in seoul have been in near daily discussions with their north korean counterparts at the truce village apartment john that's in the demilitarized zone separating the two koreas how much progress has been made is unknown or whether north korea's stated commitment to denuclearization comes with a specific timetable and a process for verification that's acceptable to the u.s. i think north korea wants to strachan this process of democratization for as long as possible the very i can now you magine them agreeing to a near term timetable and they're lying to completely dismantle their nuclear weapons but sensing a possible historic breakthrough russia doesn't want to be left on the sidelines just as chinese president xi jinping is recent meetings with kim the russians want
4:11 pm
to exert the kind of influence they feel they deserve. the u.s. team remains here in seoul but they haven't been seen leaving their hotel today thursday it's assumed possibly because they're waiting to see what developments may take place in new york and they then take up the negotiations once more but martin the truce village in pam and john is becoming an increasingly busy place south korean senior officials are preparing to resume their into korean dialogue friday with their north korean counterparts this is all part of the korean process that started this whole peace process several months ago this is a diplomatic process of increasing moving parts or i'd rather thank you very much for that and just before we move on to another issue just to say that president trump has tweeted. he hopes to have that north korea summit on june the
4:12 pm
twelfth so that's the latest tweet to come from president trump just as is that round of talks get around gets under way in new york between my compare the century of state and the north korean number three effectively now we're going to move on to some other news in denmark has decided to ban the wearing of full face veils in public from all this the justice minister said the veil was incompatible with danish values now women wearing burkas or niqab same public spaces will face fines france austria and belgium they've already got similar laws in place now in two thousand and five denmark parliament passed a law that said refugees must be assessed for their integration potential that those were the exact words before they could be accepted and that's one of many strict immigration policies in the country two years ago at the height of the syrian refugee crisis denmark passed a law which required a silent seekers to surrender valuables like their jury and gold to help pay for
4:13 pm
their stay in the country and then last week the immigration minister suggested that muslims fasting for the holy month of ramadan were and i'm quoting here a danger to danish society. all right we can speak to jacob goma who is a danish lawyer and he's executive director of just this year that's been hague and think tank which focus on human rights is joining us from. thank you very much indeed for talking to us and what's going on in denmark why as they pass what many consider to be a little which attacks individual liberties in denmark. thank you very much for having me on i apologize there's a bit of noise in the background here i mean in a hotel in oslo i think the justice minister said. there's a widespread feeling that the book and the new camp which is basically what the law is aimed at rector's and this is something incompatible with danish values and it
4:14 pm
may also be such an ist symbols i tend to agree with that but on the other hand a very important part of danish values is also freedom of expression and freedom of religion and so i think this is a very unfortunate. way of legislating because if a woman decides to wear. the face well out of her own free choice. you should have the right to do so even though that may often and the ordinary danish absolutely though apparently i mean and tell me if i'm right this affects a very very small number of women in denmark a very very small number actually choose to wear the burka or the niqab so this is perhaps more about sending a message what kind of message do you think is the danish parliament trying to send . well as in many other countries in the worst there are worries about islamic fundamentalism we have unfortunately had some instances where radical imams in
4:15 pm
denmark have. spread some rather. you could say extremist messages including. the messages so there's a there's a tendency that politicians want to send a clear signal that they are hard on religious fundamentalism. and i think that's important to counter extremism but i think it's an unfortunate to counter extremism by limiting some of the most important values in the fight against extremism which is which are freedom of conscience freedom of religion freedom of expression and it's expect it especially unfortunate in denmark because we have the whole cartoon affair where some of the same politicians who are not holding in favor of the ban are going to the face well we're saying you know free speech is extremely important we cannot you know we cannot limit free speech just because some people are and i think that was. the right message at the time i don't
4:16 pm
think you should limit free speech either you know due to religious feelings but i don't think you should limit free speech or freedom of religion due to secular or democratic feelings either all right thank you very much jacob into giving us your interpretation of what's going on in denmark thank you very much thank you. we've got a lot to come of this out here in the south including a generation at risk the impact of wars of civil war in south sudan's this vulnerable. tens of thousands of families in south africa think basic rights. and it's all even in the stanley cup finals is the path to the right thing going to jail will have the details coming up in sports. now spanish m.p.'s are currently debating a no confidence motion against the prime minister mariano rajoy after twenty one people linked to his party the people's party were jailed for corruption the main
4:17 pm
opposition socialist party is leading the charge to remove him from office it claims that he has lost all credibility a court ruled that former people's party officials took bribes to fund election campaigns in exchange for lucrative public contracts parker is our correspondent in madrid. one hundred seventy six m.p.'s here the three hundred fifty congress need to support a vote of no confidence in prime minister mariano rajoy for the motion to pass it's all being spearheaded by the opposition socialist party and its leader pen through 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 marianna as
4:18 pm
prime minister here he had it on else seem more interested in pushing for new elections later on in here 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 parties though 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 vote against him during his time as prime minister he is accused of 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 roy 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
4:19 pm
a loss of both promise to keep up the pressure on marianna who are you 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 the european court of human rights has ruled that remain here in lithuania complicit in the torture and abuse of two men at secret u.s. prisons european judges say a saudi national and a palestinian man well captured then taken to cia operated secret prisons in lithuania and remain here after the september eleventh attacks in two thousand and one they were subjected to what the court calls inhumane treatment both men are currently serving time at guantanamo bay prison. the u.n. agency is home they will have to scrap services to syrian refugees in neighboring countries if there isn't a significant boost in the amount of money that they're given five and a half million refugees live outside syria most of them are in turkey in jordan and

agencies responsible for humanitarian action in syria are warning of consequences if they don't receive the funds they need so far the international community has donated less than one third of the five point six billion dollars required. the lack of funding. will have a direct impact on the nutritional status of the people mainly women and children but not only that we've seen the result of food cuts. has an impact on the education which is something is extremely important in this region and we don't want to end up with an all lost generation the seven year war has been particularly hard on our children thousands have been killed tens of thousands disabled some of the displaced attend school in tents many others don't go to school at all and about half of the five point five million refugees in neighboring countries are children in seven years. close to five hundred fifty
4:22 pm
thousand syrian children have been born. in those countries hosting them as refugee and those host nations countries like jordan and lebanon for example are dealing with their own economic problems and many cases refugees coming and settling in locations that are already poor and impoverished and one of the examples for for lebanon particularly for two hundred fifty one most affected municipalities that they have identified for the last four or five years without adequate funding for livelihoods and social cohesion sector our ability is the only cover twenty four of those two hundred fifty municipalities the fighting has subsided across the country but the humanitarian crisis remains millions depend on aid to survive and their situation is worsening in the absence of a political solution that. beirut. the red cross has announced that it's sending additional

4:25 pm

4:26 pm
jakarta. indonesia and israel don't have to apply metric relations but still thousands of indonesians travel to israel every year they visit 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 the 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 way 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
4:27 pm
the foreign ministry here in jakarta has strongly denied of us ever such 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 wonder if and when they can go back to israel to visit the holy sites. about fifty thousand victims of institutional child sex abuse in australia to get financial compensation the scouts the salvation army the y.m.c.a. and the catholic and anglican churches have all joined a national redress scheme for survivors the catholic church australia's largest denomination thinks its alone will be liable for around seven hundred fifty million dollars in compensation. well we'd certainly expect to be paying out for survivors
