kind of that the terrorist will hit particularly hard about ninety percent of it's still head south of the border it's the u.s. is biggest supplier but mexico also is one of the top exporters of steel to be united states despite that both it's going canada insist trade flow still works in the us is favor for them the decision by the troubled ministration just doesn't make sense because in economic is no economic justification at the end of the day you see that mexico has a deficit with the u.s. in any lineaments deal that we can see more from them than we moreover in sectors that are essential for their company but there's another element to this washington's insistence the three countries of renegotiating the nafta free trade agreement the u.s. want to see more concessions from mix coming canada they both emphasized that they still came to talk but added that there retaliatory measures will remain in place as long as the u.s. terrorists to join homan. mexico city or just states he is

a former state department official in obama's administration he says there's a high chance of a trade war we're already hearing direct responses from the e.u. from japan from canada about what they're going to do reciprocal tariffs coming in at the american economy and that means that if we respond again in kind this could go several rounds and lead ultimately to a very sizable trade war that will be detrimental to all of us what we are hoping is that the administration will think twice here this is what our allies are hoping this is what the leaders in japan in canada. and all across europe are hoping it seems that this cabinet and this president in particular have things kind of reverse in their minds what they don't understand is that protectionism and mercantile isn't is a very bad thing for all parties involved. the u.s. secretary of state says he's big great progress in his talks with one of kim jong
5:02 am
il north korea pardon me north korean leader kim jong un's closest aides might pompei or has met kim yong in new york for a second day now the talks are supposed to smooth the way for a summit between trump and kim in less than two weeks time but pompei refused to confirm it actually happened on diplomatic editor james bays reports. a second day of intense diplomacy between the u.s. secretary of state and the north korean envoy who met for almost two and a half hours reporters watched the comings and goings at the apartment block where the u.s. government owns a residence on the thirty ninth floor state department officials were very cautious in what they said but one man was not as restrained the u.s. president who spoke as the meeting was still under way revealing for the first time that general kim will now head to the white house good morning i just want to tell you we're doing very well with north korea our secretary of state has had very good
5:03 am
meetings he's meeting again today. i believe they'll be coming down to washington on friday and a letter is going to be delivered to me from him john. the president said the summit in singapore if it takes place could be the first of perhaps two or three meetings between him and kim jong un later secretary pump aoe sidestepped questions about whether the two sides have the same definition of denuclearization and seemed well aware of the scale of the challenge ahead this is going to be a process that will take days and weeks to work our way through there will be tough moments there will be difficult times i've had some difficult conversations with them as well. they've given right back to me to reporters had been led to believe that these crucial negotiations would only be taking place here at this apartment
5:04 am
block in new york but now there is another phase and an unpredictable element president trump himself at the white house general kim is carrying a letter which he will open there from his leader kim jong james' post al-jazeera new york well a story has many moving parts across the world let's cross over to rob a pride in seoul and while the top remains quite positive in new york city robert still sort of like the detail for a very eager press corps globally and an expectant global audience especially where you are. absolutely see how very little detail at all but the fact that they are talking they are engaged will be taken as a positive sign especially here in south korea where this whole strategy of engagement first started all those months ago pompei zero being very upfront saying yes these are difficult talks but talking about the years of mistrust that have existed between north korea in the united states that's to be expected and you do
5:05 am
get the impression that if there is going to be a breakthrough then it will be in talks between these men pompei o and kim they do very much stand in their bosses shoes they seem to have the full confidence of their respective leaders they able to negotiate their countries positions the white house has been very careful not to set any deadline of when to commit to a summit but you do get an impression that what with twelve days to go the point of no return of committal not commit is probably about now so this does seem to be a crunch period we can only guess at the obstacles that are in their way how far apart they are we know that there are different definitions of denuclearization and of course the question of sanctions the north koreans want to see sanctions relief economic relief and early in the process rather than later here in seoul friday a team of negotiators from the u.s.
5:06 am
side they remain here they didn't they have been holding talks with their north korean counterparts pam and john that the truce village on the d.m.z. they didn't hold talks thursday but we understand they remain in seoul and if there is a breakthrough it's not inconceivable that they will resume their talks to try to work out the nitty gritty details of a possible summit of course the north koreans keeping all of their options opening and the lines of communication open especially to the russians. that's right we had a visit to pyongyang thursday by surrogate lavrov the russian foreign minister coming down to say that russia fully supports the dialogue between the two careers talking about full support for the dialogue between north korea and the americans but you get the impression that the russians very much want to be in on the action they are rather like china in this they don't want to be sidelined they feel as
5:07 am
though they should have an influence on events and interestingly for the north koreans a lot of raf and the russians did seem to give support to their views on the easing of sanctions saying that sanctions should be eased the americans won't like to hear that and what particularly like the russians interfering as they might see this and also lavrov left having given an invitation for kim jong un to visit moscow another summit to add to his already busy summit itinerary will of course keep an eye on what's going on where you are robert as time progresses thank you now the u.n. security council as givens of the dollar's warring sanctions a month to reach a peace deal or face possible sanctions voted to adopt a u.s. led resolution which threatens to an arms embargo against the defense chief and five other officials south sudan descended into civil war in twenty thirteen when the president salva kiir accused the then deputy reich of plotting

5:09 am
to bridge the gaps between the different parties so at the moment the u.s. the u.s. seems to think that what they have done is better than at the u.n. security council is better than nothing but what they are hoping for after the forty five day period is that they would be able to push for stronger sanctions should there be no peace in south sudan well still ahead here in italy the political deadlock appears to be over with a populist government to be. heard for the country considers whether the laws of. the weather sponsored by katter. thirty seven degrees in hong kong should not be

5:14 am
a previous government of technocrats it would be a disaster for the for entirely in these economies because these two party want to spare and they should renegotiate something with europe and the european union is not too keen to make any concessions to italy for opponents of the so-called populist alliance the only good news is that italy finally has a government but the biggest issue that our nation on their program is very dangerous and impossible it is dangerous for families and for business but this is our opinion let's hope they contradict us. the italian public will want to see how far the administration meets campaign promises from deporting so-called illegal immigrants to providing a guaranteed minimum income the nature of this incoming government won't be to the liking of many leaders but the fact is had there been fresh elections in italy the so-called populist parties may well have won a stronger mandate to demand change so for the time being many people are reserving

5:16 am
always the color green that's become a symbol of the national campaign for free legal and safe abortions a minute us legal but not mine yet we have been fighting for many years for something like this to happen to separate the state from the church and to the side based on what's better for the country in the past decade we have seen a few reasons for aggressive reforms in argentina like gay marriage and sexual education policies but until now abortion has been off the table mainly because of the pressure by the catholic church in the past two months we have seen over seven hundred people coming here to congress to express their views for and against abortion the debate has polarized the country abortion in argentina easy legal only in case of rape or a fair woman's life is had risk but it is estimated that four hundred thousand planned the stein abortions are performed every year many women have died most of them are poor the outcome of any vote is by no means certain sure. and
5:17 am
there i have to defend the right to life that is in our constitution and i cannot go against the right to life since conception but if you ask me if you want a woman to go to prison because of an abortion i say no i think we can protect them in a different way if they want to. this public debate has promoted the visibility of a problem and the consequence that has it helps the health ministry and also szell sectors to begin talking about sexual education educate about contraception and prevent abortions precedent marketing is against a change in the law but he allowed the debate defying the pressure from the catholic church when the story was you know more you know some bishops have been very aggressive with lawmakers where they have threatened those who are planning to vote in favor they generate fear they remain authoritarian but it's because they know they will lose. over the past fifteen years the campaign to legalize abortion has presented six bills on six different locations but no one made it to congress

many hope it will be different this time that is how well. done works parliament has voted to ban the use of full face veils in public spaces after the law comes into force an august any person wearing a burka or in the car which only shows the bodies will be fined around one hundred fifty dollars france austria and belgium have already imposed similar bans than shaker but gamma from the think tank just sticker says the new danish law raises a few legal questions. i think the justice minister said it that there's a widespread feeling that they the book and the niqab which is basically what the law is aimed at reckless and this is something incompatible with danish values and it may also be misjudging as symbols i tend to agree with that but on the other hand
5:19 am
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 of a lot of her own free choice then yes you should have the right to do so even though that may offend the ordinary danish person. agencies of warm go have to curtail relief program for syrian refugees unless there's a significant funding boost seven years of war in syria has created the world's largest refugee crisis as reports. was these syrians are some of the millions forced from their homes by war who receive meals from local charities during the holy month of ramadan there are tens of thousands who arrived in the opposition controlled province of idlib in recent weeks with nothing they don't have homes or jobs they are among the seven million syrians who are refugees in their own country and who the united nations says are vulnerable to

5:28 am
it was an election that was high on symbolism it fractured iraq voting for the first time after the defeat of myself but now the outcome of what should have been a free and bad reelection is under scrutiny with hopes of a peaceful transition to power in iraq be dashed again this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program. it's been more than three weeks since iraqis went to the polls but the result was split and no single political bloc has been able to form a government the u.n. is urging a quick solution to be found so the country moves forward to was much needed reforms but now it seems that process could be further delayed charles trotta reports from baghdad. members of the iraqi parliament called an open special
5:29 am
session on monday following more allegations of fraud during parliamentary elections earlier this month the call for votes in the predominantly sunni provinces of. dean and nineveh and all ballots cast by iraqis living abroad to be manually recounted if the results differ by more than twenty five percent from those announced by the electoral commission that it could force a recount of nearly eleven million ballots the demand was supported by many sunni politicians and others who opposed the election results which saw a successful outcome the three main shia led blocs in iraq's first election since the defeat of eisel and architects we had a hierarchy. manipulations and many problems that took place and that is seen apparent in the decisions made by parliament today and i personally support these decisions in which they serve in the interest of the political and democratic process in iraq therefore we must implement these decisions prime minister hydrilla
5:30 am
body warned in his weekly news conference of potential political instability if demands for recounts continued. i must warn of something that we can't get into a political limbo we're checking all violations and complaints i must say that the political process is important we can't get into a political vacuum parliament only has thirty days left to finish its legal term and the new parliament must take effect after that without a new parliament in place there will be a constitutional gap on wednesday parliament special session continued twenty eight parliamentarians put together a draft law for a complete recount of votes across all of iraq and for it to be supervised by the iraqi judiciary and the u.n. mission in the country. iraq's independent election commission council votes at one sawzall and twenty one of the country's fifty three thousand ballot boxes they were mainly in the predominantly sunni provinces of dana nineveh and sixty seven outside
5:31 am
the country for many iraqis including those who voted a broad allegations of voting fraud comes as no surprise i'm sorry to say that we have no. hope. but it's. also. quite changed and yes because if we keep electing these people people are not going to have a change in the future in order for any country wide recount little to be passed it would have to be ratified by fifty percent plus one of iraq's three hundred twenty nine member of parliament before then being signed off by the supreme court but no matter the kind of legal difficulties that these twenty eight m.p.'s are pushing for this country wide recount face the issue highlights just how difficult it is to form a government in iraq after years of violence and political instability. inside story
5:32 am
baghdad. if the recount does go ahead it would impact about ten percent of votes cast overall but that could prove decisive in an election that produced no clear winner here's where things stand now she of the southers set your own bloc won the most parliamentary seats fifty four souther though is not putting himself forward as prime minister. fattah party came a close second with forty seven seas he's known to have close ties with iran and had a coalition of armed groups i guess i sell the incumbent prime minister hate that all about his victory alliance trailed in third place with forty two seats the elections in iraq were marked by a record low turnout but were free from serious violence. let's now go over fast of our guests joining us in but. the director of house of
5:33 am
iraqi expertise foundation and senior foreign policy adviser to the speaker of the iraqi parliament in erbil judith nearing afirm journalist and founder of the independent media center in kurdistan. in washington d.c. christine vanden turned director of the institute of regional and international studies warm welcome to you all are we talking about a glitch here or there's something more serious to it while he looks like that everyone is looking for his own inclosed the parliament or let's say this parliament is actually supporting the recounting the manual recounting. a very costly and want to say that the committee the electoral committee actually made a major frauds in so many provinces in iraq and i hack the next to
5:34 am
a committee actually they are responsible for that that's why i don't know for. sure that it's supposed to be the judges who take the control of the committee first and then the manual recounting will happen then thirdly there will be new results about the end result of the elections that happen in may in the earliest make now this is a side the other side does actually i hack now is that they are saying no we didn't do anything but results of the real and we're also convinced that the digital counting is the same with the manual counting it will be the same result so this case it looks like it's that we have to separate the two separate part partners all as a true separate parts and this issue ok. so the plan now is to recount about ten percent
5:35 am
of the votes cast overall however if there's a difference of about twenty five percent they might call for a recount across the board is this something that could change the political map in iraq. you would think so i mean if you look at the effect of. the ballot boxes are should say the polling stations that health have already been pulled out and no longer valid they did to saying here is that twenty one candidates who have been elected in mostly sunni provinces are no longer. sure of their seats so it might have a big effect and the effect i think is even bigger if you look at the fact that what does this say about democracy in this country what does it say about the fairness of a bunch of books another problem that i would like to address here is my head
5:36 am
itself the election committee they are the the board of it exists completely all full of titian's and the parliament has decided who is on that board so how independent are you and in that kind of system. christine for the time being do you think this is something that would just address the issue of the recount or that could grow to call for new elections in iraq yes i mean the opposition parties in the kurdistan region are calling for a recount but also for new elections if the violations and the evidence of irregularities is so huge and so widespread that it would even invalidate or
5:37 am
a manual recount because one of their points is that. because of the multiple types of fraud committed allegedly that even a recount would be tainted. because of the old biometric card store forged national i.d. that again even a manual recount would not expose the true results. however i will say there is also a knowledge and understanding that you know a new election. could also be had he stabilizing though i think writing stand results that are question so widely is of course equally destabilizing let's take a closer look at the areas and demography where results are at stake. in the report twenty eight members of iraq's parliament drafting a bill that would allow
5:38 am
a manual vote recount across the country the bill also calls for votes from iraq is living in other countries the internationally internally to space to be an old and recounted manually the electoral commission has already cancelled results of one thousand and twenty one of the fifty three thousand ballot boxes used in the elections including sixty seven a broad agreement the sunnis have been saying that they have been discriminated against and the results of the elections were didn't run in the own favor d.-la do you think that the united bloc that we could be one of the blocks to benefit from any calls for new elections or a recount. well i think. there were already making some sort of a coalition wide coalition which i count about twenty seven m.p.'s twenty seven new m.p.'s. it's what i need.
5:39 am
to me i'm with others inside the sunni area that making about twenty seven new m.p.'s and also they are negotiating with someone new j.v. . to also join this which means that we are talking about more than thirty five. piece a coalition of that why that means they will have the chair inside the seventy or less a seventy two m.p.'s seventy two sunni piece now i think we must separate between the violence that it is connected to the recount and the violence that it will be connected to making the government two separate things on this way the first the first thing is that we are thinking about the recount and how the recount will change the seats that means there will be some seats outside the sunni about it going to the maybe this is to the to the not so no one knows exactly why
5:40 am
we're asking these questions because as you know this is a close election at the moment you get a very tiny difference that could lead to a political realignment in the country judith we've seen kurdish parties writing to boycott the political process in iraq of their demands about cancelling the results of the elections in kurdistan are not met very likely to move forward now build more momentum to worse asking for new elections. well the interesting thing here in kurdistan is if you look at what the election committee has decided to a no they are not so much the voting stations in the money where most of the outcry is but it is mostly in the hope where k d p the largest party won enormously and in arabic go here where also k d p won so on the on the whole all of court is done seems to be somehow tainted with fraud. if all this is
5:41 am
going to be recounted we have another question on the ballot ballot box is really safe and it will be the counting of those ballot boxes be the same as what people actually did on the machines there is a lot of. things we do not know there's a lot of ways of fraud and if you listen to the politicians here. some of them are like gold on the change movement they are really angry and they are even considering making their own militia as they are saying as long as parties like eighty b.n.p. ok the second party are have their own militias then these irregular irregularities will continue so we need to have so military power as well and of course that's very dangerous violence here is always so near to the to the surface and that makes it even worse christine we're talking about a country that has been beset by six divide the fight against calls from the
5:42 am
international community for the iraqi government to reach the disgruntled and particular to the sunni community to attain to election is this something that could drag iraq two words war instability. yes said just picking up on cue point i think that is why it's so important to address these grievances. because of the widespread allegations of fraud i mean there is it does my friends kind of say in kurdistan there is not one person here that doesn't think there was fraud. i've heard consistently over the past couple weeks my vote won't change anything the only way to change this place is through force and this is from my friends who are academics political scientists professors my students and i think that this is a consistent problem in the middle east when people always ask why is the middle east so violent but my friends from the states ask me this and i think about
5:43 am
elections when people's voices aren't heard consistently in middle east history and this is a perfect example today they turn to other means this manifests their voice how can it be heard it manifests in different ways that are potentially i think more destabilizing for iraq and for kurdistan and so that is why i think that these grievances these complaints really need to be addressed where as some might say in the short term you know it might push back government formation which is a gray area that could be destabilizing if we look at the medium and long term if the opposition and the voice of the kurdish people is not to be heard through the ballot box and i am concerned about how they will make it her another way ok. of the results when. we play is likely to save the future of the country both of those so the. very with the recount.
5:44 am
being triggered do you think. as far as the books stand. well. first of all until now the recount didn't happen that means we're going to wait until the vote for the law for the new law that it will be submitted by the parliament maybe next wednesday of say so at that time if it will happen i don't think it will change the seats between the three players but i think it will support the claims of the fourth player who is mr maliki the state of florida is now making some sort of. under the table coalition with the with her chemo and so on in a way to try to separate. your own. story and muscle in a way or another to be a weakened winds inside the cabinet and maybe of them maybe are there at the end of june there will be another coalition that it will happen that the knesset will join
5:45 am
maliki and and and hakim in a way or another to separate or let's say to isolate to isolate iran and make iran an opposition inside the parliament not making the government which can be happen just of the year that this could trigger also new political realignment in the country we've seen just over the last few days talk about both of the being of the king and that if. he becomes prime minister a souther is that is the one who's going to have a bigger say now we're talking about what do you face as you take into account that could bring everything back to square one. yes especially if you look at the fact that both the two bigger parties in courtice down katy p.n.p. ok have already gone to baghdad to talk to the different winners to see if they can be part of
5:46 am
a coalition. the opposition parties have been. and not all of them i must say but mostly have been waiting. because they don't agree on the outcome the moment that they can talk as well i don't see any chord unity happening so this will probably be a change of blocks which one is going to be the biggest which one is going to be the most interesting and which of the kurdish parties do still feel that they can work together that's going to be the big question here but let me just put to you there's another important issue and that's care coke and care coke. the be ok so the second party has won now sure the courts are the biggest group in care but there were a lot of. in areas that there are no coots living and that usually does not happen so deter kman and the arabs they are angry and they have already been
5:47 am
protesting and this is an issue where a recount is probably the only way to get people to agree to an outcome. for care coke itself which is very fallen tile this is important and i see a point kristie we're talking about the ongoing political divide at a time when the international committee of the america in particular the americas in particular because now they have this new reviewing the policy with it they have been saying that the eager to see a stable government in iraq but if you look at these developments this doesn't seem to be the case any time soon. yeah i would say you know of course government formation the sooner the better is ideal and you know especially for the international community to have this return to your stability in a new government but i i would say we should think about the past fifteen years and i think for example one thing that's been very destabilizing for iraq has been the
5:48 am
nature of the erbil baghdad relationship haven't had good partners in baghdad or deal very zero maximalist politics. now we have the exact same situation now because of the results we have the same parties. going down to baghdad negotiating with a variety of actors but flirting a bit with the nouri maliki and how the armories and i think that instead of pushing too much and hoping that we have this government formation as soon as possible. we should think about the medium and long term. do we want the same actors forming a same maximalist zero-sum. we want to return to the post two thousand and three is michael of zero sum politics in iraq or should we wait and take some time and say are these really the best partners for iraq not just next week or next month but
5:49 am
this coming year and four year. c.d.'s off to the. sea do you think that the metrics of the incidental community has been trying to work on iraq. do people still have faith in the political establishment if they have to wake up every now and then about the vase of. corruption or to into the election. well. frankly speaking people actually understand that the political process is hopeless that that's why the court was well it's more than fifty six percent forty five forty four percent is only part split in the elections will show you and by the way it's sunni shia and kurds it's not only sunni it's not only shia kurds everyone from every ethnic partners inside this country the most important thing is that we must listen to the to the people who boy called the political
5:50 am
process because or let's say but boy called the elections because it sends a message is that you're wrong you're always sending us or let's say your way you are always pushing corrupted persons. persons who are not individuals who are not qualified to control or let's say to lead this country we need someone who is eligible to lead this country by the way let's also not forget is that the kurds are united against the law but if they are not accepting hyderabadi as prime minister there is also a challenge. for the force. to push the lower body to the prime minister and this is going to be my question now to death i mean in a country where in the north for example you have this push for this independent sentiment in the sunni community there is this feeling that they have been battered and dispossessed and then you have the shiite shia who are in power
5:51 am
how do you see the future of iraq. well it doesn't look very good because indeed as you're saying it's the danger of the of the country falling apart has been here for a while and what we saw after the battle against isis was that it pulled together again because they all work together to get isis out now these kind of political movements. the way it all is about money and about who is going to get the place so that he can get his his cousin and his brother a job and this is really it's a disaster for this country and indeed it's very true if you don't listen to all those people who didn't go to vote. then what's going to happen after that so i'm not optimistic about what's happening here to be quite honest real

6:56 am
welcome to the news are the united states is imposing steel and alan minium tariffs on the european union canada and mexico stoking fears of a global trade war the trumpet ministration claims the move is justified saying reliance on imported metals is a threat to national security but it's target some of america's closest allies and their threatening retaliation french president manuel called the u.s. action illegal his foreign minister says america first is becoming america alone mexico's economy minister describe the terrorists as in comprehensible and a worst case scenario there's also opposition at home republican senator bob corker call the move an abuse of authority he urged the president to cooperate with u.s.
6:57 am
allies our white house correspondent kimberly held it has more. u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross made the announcement from paris where he was attending an annual trade forum. tariffs of twenty five percent on steel and ten percent on aluminum imports into the united states from canada mexico and the european union all go into effect friday the move potentially sets in motion a trade war with some of the united states' most important allies a claim the u.s. commerce secretary brushed off everybody has a remeron. very firmly every country with others whose loathing. will get over in due course in brussels the head of the european commission called it a bad day for world trade promising counter measures that could include retaliatory tariffs u.s. goods into the e.u.
6:58 am
on everything from blue jeans to motorcycles what they can do able to do exactly. the same it's totally up to the it come to the letter of measures when it comes to. create france's junior trade minister promised a similar response suggesting the u.s. president may be misinformed. the comes a point when one needs to look at the figures and i'm surprised that maybe president trump stuff haven't shown him how much those european companies have invested in the united states created jobs that to assemble and produce that now those u.s. jobs could be at risk just as president donald trump seeks to fulfill one of his top campaign promises to protect the jobs of his supporters in america's steel and aluminum manufacturing sectors it's not just international partners criticizing donald trump's decision to oppose steel and aluminum tariffs on top u.s.
6:59 am
. allies domestically members of president trump's own republican party are also criticizing him fear of the effects of a global trade war despite white house efforts to downplay those concerns can really help get al-jazeera at the white house now reaction to the u.s. move has been particularly strong in canada mexico america's partners in the nuff to trade agreement john holdren has more from mexico city. after the us put the squeeze on neighbors and trading on lies mixed growing canada imposing steel and mini interests retaliation quickly followed both amounts dollar for dollar surcharges on u.s. imports these tariffs are totally unacceptable canadian prime minister justin through and his foreign minister chrystia freeland denounce the us his actions this is sixteen point six billion dollars of retaliation this is
7:00 am
the strongest trade action canada has taken in the post-war era first of all mexico's economic minister called this the worst case scenario and said the country would put tariffs on some u.s. steel products apples grapes pull and cheese today that we take action at the moment to compensate. it without mentioning it down the mexican experts on this dilemma i live in but this dispute was the last thing either country wanted with a powerful and until recently mostly friendly neighbor the kind of the terrorists will hit the tinkly hard about ninety percent of it's still head south of the border it's the us is biggest supplier but mexico also is one of the top exporters of steel to the united states despite that both its going canada insist trade flows do work to the us is favor for them the decision by the troubled ministration just
7:01 am
doesn't make sense. like there's no economic justification at the end of the day you see that mexico has a deficit with the u.s. in any lineaments deal that we can see more from them than we exhaust and moreover in sectors that are essential to their company but there's another element to this washington's insistence the three countries of renegotiating the nafta free trade agreement the us want to see more concessions from mexico and canada they both emphasized that there's still claim to talk but added that there italia three measures will remain in place as long as the u.s. terrorists do join homan. mexico city now the u.s. secretary of state says he's made great progress in his talks with one of north korean leader kim jong un's closest aides might pompei or has met kim yong choi in new york for a second day the talks are supposed to smooth the way for a summit between donald trump and kim jong un in less than two weeks time but
7:02 am
pompei is refusing to confirm it will actually happen our diplomatic editor james baines reports. a second day of intense diplomacy between the u.s. secretary of state and the north korean envoy who met for almost two and a half hours reporters watched the comings and goings at the apartment block where the u.s. government owns a residence on the thirty ninth floor state department officials were very cautious in what they said but one man was not as restrained the u.s. president who spoke as the meeting was still under way revealing for the first time that general kim will now head to the white house good morning i just want to tell you we're doing very well with north korea our secretary of state has had very good meetings he's meeting again today. i believe they'll be coming down to washington on friday and a letter is going to be delivered to me from him john. the president said the
7:03 am
summit in singapore if it takes place could be the first of perhaps two or three meetings between him and kim jong un later secretary pump aoe sidestepped questions about whether the two sides have the same definition of denuclearization and seemed well aware of the scale of the challenge ahead this is going to be a process that will take days and weeks to work our way through there will be tough moments there will be difficult times i've had some difficult conversations with them as well. they've given right back to me to reporters had been led to believe that these crucial negotiations would only be taking place here at this apartment block in new york but now there is another phase and an unpredictable element president trump himself at the white house general kim is carrying a letter which he will open there from his leader kim jong il and james post
7:04 am
al-jazeera new york of course over to our correspondent wayne hay who's in seoul of course away while the talk remains very positive in new york city on the other side of the world on a different continent it was still like the detail for a very eager press corps an expectant global audience especially where you are on the peninsula. yes well it seems that everyone is being very cautious when it comes to saying whether this summit between donald trump and kim jong un will take place in singapore on june twelfth whether or not there will be more delays and as you heard there in james's piece from the u.s. prison donald trump that even if the meeting does play take place on june the twelfth in singapore that he's hinting that maybe there won't be any significant deal announced in terms of denuclearization of the korean peninsula and that it may take two possibly three even more meetings to get some sort of significant deal signed all we're hearing really from the united states at the moment in terms of
7:05 am
detail is that everyone is still working towards that goal of having a summit in singapore on june twelfth we may know more when this meeting takes place between kim yong the man that was referenced in james piece the right hand man to kim jong un when he meets with the u.s. president in washington later on friday and delivers that letter from kim jong un to the u.s. president we may know more about whether or not this summit will happen in singapore on the twelfth of june and exactly how far apart these two countries remain when it comes to that issue of the denuclearization of the peninsula indeed there are lots of moving parts to this story you know focused on new york singapore soul but also pyongyang. the russians have made an appearance in the last twenty four hours. yes indeed this was the russian
7:06 am
foreign minister sergei lavrov making a trip to pyongyang to meet with kim jong un the north korean leader during that meeting a invitation was issued to the north korean leader to travel to moscow to have a summit with the russian president vladimir putin now we're not sure when that summit will take place according to the official news agency from north korea kim jong un has accepted the invitation so it seems to be a case of the russians really wanting to be a part of any deal that is made going forward when it comes to again the denuclearization of the korean peninsula the opening up of north korea perhaps about russia saying look we have a huge stake in this issue we share a border with north korea as does china of course and of any deal is going to be made then the russians and indeed the chinese need to be a part of that so that appears to be what this was all about and then we have
7:07 am
meeting today in the demilitarized zone between north and south korea a high level meeting between a delegation from both of those countries this meeting was supposed to take place just over two weeks ago but the north koreans withdrew from that because of the military exercises that were taking place at the time between the united states and south korea so this will be very much the practical end of what was discussed in those into korean summits between the south korean president moon j.n. and kim jong un or for the moment we'll leave it there way and come back to you when there are more developments thank you let's go to europe where italy is getting a populist government the anti establishment five star movement and the far right league party have succeeded in forming a coalition with just as prime minister that he and his ministers will be sworn in on friday ending weeks of political deadlock but in baba reports from rome. ending almost a week of political and financial turmoil in italy the incoming prime minister announces his government lineup. by my side there will be luigi demaio labor in the
7:08 am
industry minister who will also assume the role of deputy prime minister senator mattel's salvini interior minister who will assume the role of deputy prime minister the difference between this time around and last weekend the controversial figure of paolo serve on a euro skeptic rejected by the president as economy minister now gets the e.u. affairs portfolio while that means there's still scope for friction with brussels the new foreign minister laurence omar varo million easy is a familiar figure from a previous government of technocrats it would be a disaster for the for italy and these economies because these two party want to spare and this should renegotiate something with europe and the european union is not too keen to make any concessions to italy for opponents of the so-called populist alliance the only good news is that italy finally has a government but the biggest issue that our nation on their program is very dangerous and impossible it is dangerous for families and for business but this is
7:09 am
our opinion let's hope they contradict us. the italian public will want to see how far the administration meets campaign promises from deporting so-called illegal immigrants to providing a guaranteed minimum income the nature of this incoming government won't be to the liking of many leaders but the fact is had there been fresh elections in italy the so-called populist parties may well have won a stronger mandate to demand change so for the time being many people are reserving their judgments the dean barber al jazeera rome spanish prime minister mariano rajoy who may lose his job after a no confidence vote in parliament on friday his party has been struggling to restore trust after it was implicated in a major corruption scandal the reports from madrid. defending his leadership prime minister mariano rajoy arrived at parliament where a possible no confidence vote against him and his people's party is looming the
7:10 am
motions being brought by the opposition socialist party leader pedro sanchez the motion calls for sanchez to replace the whole way as prime minister but if in your voice are you going to resign mr a horny or are you going to keep clinging to the position weakening democracy and weakening and appreciating the quality of the government institution the motion follows the jailing of twenty nine high ranking members of the party for illegally financing campaigns in the one nine hundred ninety s. and early two thousand. became the first prime minister in office to give evidence in a trial last year. former people's party treasurer lewis was among those convicted on monday once a close. he was given a thirty three year jail sentence and fined fifty one million dollars royal insists the corruption allegations don't affect anyone in government less in. the sentence doesn't say i blame the people's party for being corrupt or for creating an
7:11 am
institution a corrupt system it doesn't say this will be helpful to read the sentence and read it well one hundred seventy six m.p.'s out of three hundred fifty hear it means congress would need to support a vote of no confidence for the motion to pass the socialist no they can't do this alone so they've drawn in support from their political rivals the leftist but and most party says it will back a vote of no confidence the centrists the other party says that it won't so it could all boil down to two smaller regional parties a castle and basque nationalist parties to force the prime minister out of office both regimes say they'll now support the no confidence vote. catalan nationalists egot a punishment for clamping down hard on the region separatist movement after catalonia declared independence last year. and one of the longest political careers in spanish history. and he is indeed a political survivor the pressure in the media the pressure in the street. to think
7:12 am
that he can stay for another two years is difficult. but it's possible. he's already survived one attempt to depose him he has the backing of his party. but his leadership is looking increasingly fragile. madrid for plenty more here on the al-jazeera news hour including in the. antigovernment protests rises to sixteen. and we take a look at the contenders in pakistan's upcoming general elections and more it would take for any one party to win. the french open yet again the other one of those details in sport. let's head to africa where the u.n. security council has given south sudan's warring factions a month to reach peace deal or face possible sanctions it's voted to a dog the u.s.
7:13 am
led resolution which threatens an arms embargo against the defense chief and five other officials south sudan descend into civil war in twenty thirteen when the president salva kiir accused his then deputy reich plotting a coup more than reports from the capital juba. nine countries have voted in favor of sanctions against sudan officials and six countries have abstained now to get those votes the u.s. which has been pushing for the voice had to watch it and there was allusion and did not get what they wanted what they wanted was. more officials in which they have accused of derailing the peace process and those officials include the minister of happen at the fairs as well as the minister of defense what they got instead was a forty five day technical rollover of the existing sanctions and that the secretary general should report within thirty days. about violence in the country as well as a political agreement now to reach a political agreement in south sudan seems like a bit of a tough challenge. to governmental authority on development which is
7:14 am
a regional bloc which has been trying to mediate between the warring sides have had several rounds of peace talks between the different sides and all round including the last one which ended on the twenty third of may feel to produce any results and to bridge the gaps between the different parties so at the moment the u.s. the u.s. seems to think that what they have done is better than at the u.n. security council is better than nothing but what they are hoping for after their forty five day period is that they would be able to push for stronger sanctions should there be no peace in south sudan. sixteen people have been confirmed being killed in the. government protests continue to sweep across the country. groups believed to be under the command of president. opened fire on who were demanding his resignation the latest surge in violence takes the death toll to more than one hundred since the unrest began in april our correspondent has been
7:15 am
covering the unrest and joins be no live from the capital i mean it has the violence that we've seen over the last twenty four subsided on anyway. so in short the answer would be yes we have compared to what we saw over the course last twenty four hours following that large protest here in my now while things are a lot quieter we're not it's not that chaotic scene it's not that tense scene with people running through the streets if anything it almost seems as though the city of men now is in mourning have to remind you the viewers that this was a protest that was organized in solidarity with mothers of victims who many of them students who were killed during peaceful protests here in the city of. and this was a protest that brought in somewhere around half a million people and that we had we saw armed groups and snipers just making no discrimination just shooting into crowds and we can confirm now that the
7:16 am
death toll from that shooting that took place yesterday has climbed to sixteen individuals and with another seventy seventy nine individuals who were also seriously injured but that was yesterday we are still seeing some protests pockets of unrest within the city during the earlier hours of the day those are protests that have been going on here in when i was on an almost daily basis but there is even though things have quieted down quite a bit there still seems to be a general sense that the crisis is far from over indeed i mean there was supposed to be a lot sort of a national dialogue to find a peaceful way to end this sort of political and social crisis that we're seeing on our screens what sort of progress there. the national dialogue is still going on this is a national dialogue that began on may sixteenth but we should note that that that that there's some nuances to what's going on with this national dialogue on one hand you have the individuals that are calling for president then you know they
7:17 am
have to step down the song and have witnessed what has been a crackdown against dissent here in the country and have at this point labeled him the face of it of a dictatorship he might have been. leading a revolution against the some most of the creator should forty years ago but for a lot of nicaraguans even those that supported him that have supported him for many years they now see him as so much that they now see him as as as the face of a of a new dictatorship and he can add well on the other hand you have the government of any of the dealer figure who just not want to that is unwilling to step down so these are concessions that are. that are not likely to be made on either and these protests began against policy reforms for pension reforms in the country when those protests were met with violence from the government. it quickly shifted
7:18 am
into a protest against the government itself against. against the government of the new north and so now what we're seeing are massive masses of people we saw half a million people on the streets all of them chanting wanting the president to step down for the moment we'll leave it there a man well and of course i come back to you in a situation develops men over a pile of a managua. let's head to south asia now where pakistan is swearing in a caretaker government ahead of elections in late july a former judge will run the country until the vote the three main political parties are looking to convince voters that they can grow the economy and create jobs as there is imran khan takes a look at the contenders. election time in pakistan and the country's big players are preparing for voting. the last government led by the washer it is in disarray as he was forced out of office in july two thousand and seventeen by the anti corruption court who accused him of not disclosing foreign investments he said it was a coup against his government despite that his party is confident of
7:19 am
a strong showing the pakistan muslim league n. wants to do well in the province of punjab traditionally it stronghold another big player is the pakistan people's party led by twenty nine year old bhutto he inherited the party leadership after his mother and former prime minister benazir bhutto was assassinated in two thousand and seven the party's popular in the southern sindh province and he hopes a good result there will give his party a say on the national stage. then there's imran khan the former cricketer turned politician his party held mass rallies during the government's last term accusing it of corruption and electoral fraud some pundits suggest as pakistan movement for justice party could be in line for a big win this time around. but behind all of this is pakistan's deep state institution the armed forces it is said that without all the support no party can form a government but the army says its role is simply security and stability and given
7:20 am
the region on is a new created in mitty's are all has always been at the stabiliser and to be honest we can say that they're helpful do facilitate create conducive environment peaceful environment for any type of event. for the elect. other concerns including the economy jobs and a young population with few career prospects but those issues affect the urban population in rural areas by far the biggest voting bloc it's often the village elders who dictate the vote the values these sayings up there diable eldred's these all are the things which matters a lot in pakistani elections and our common water definitely despite what about a promise is given by any political leader in the public going on died in a public speech right saud that may not matter they think the saying off is.
7:21 am
but there is another block with increasing influence over the last ten years the religious groups through networks of religious schools those parties can mobilize votes for any political party that they choose given this election is wide open it may well be their support that swings the final result but there are concerns religious parties are intolerant of other minorities and women's rights i want to see pakistan governed by religious law rather than civil war imran khan al-jazeera . well still ahead here on the al-jazeera news hour why some media organizations all happy about the way you craney and journalist faked his death. and tens of thousands of farmers in south africa seek basic rights for that land also in sports find out why is in a scene that is moving on after winning a third straight champions league title tatyana we'll have that story in sports if you stay with us.

7:26 am
move is illegal and it's yet another move by the u.s. or certainly by the president that shows it's scant regard for international laws and agreements that have been ongoing for decades now how dangerous is it to keep antagonizing his closest allies. it's very dangerous. the economic security threat to job losses to us. to the point to where even has the canadian prime minister who is actually looking into retaliation towards u.s. goods so i think this is definitely economic risk for the u.s. economy nowhere economic growth somewhat slow down if you see a depiction of that down jones of course i mean if you actually continue to use national security as an excuse for trade issues and you circumvent this does it not then sort of certain precedent for other nations to talk about national

security and deem trade agreements null and void yes absolutely you know due to u.s. global power deftly encourages other countries like somewhat to a certain china to actually pitch a situation as a national security threat and submit those grievances to the world trade organization how important or how worrying is it that in the last few days we have seen for example a trade war beginning now between the u.s. and china. this could spark a much more global pandemic in the economic markets. well it definitely shows or a change in u.s. global leadership where you start to see countries isolating united states because you know you can't necessarily depending i states to where canada the e.u.

and other countries will most likely isolate self so that's going to encourage beijing to say yes we feel the same way so this will definitely hurt united states credibility when it comes to their claim with regard to trade imbalances one wonders what sort of advice the president is getting we often think of him is sort of choosing from the hip and thinking only. what school understanding of how the dynamics could be working within the white house well we do see that we had the secretary trade represented who's in support of this but looking into capitol hill you do have a growing number of congressional representatives who are actually against this idea even have paul ryan who said that this is not a smart move so there is definitely an executive versus congressional disagreement but i think this is deathly an isolated decision within the executive office and as of now there disregarding what congress is saying as far as this week against this
7:29 am
decision it's interesting time certainly and of course will thank you for your participation castle breather in new york q very much. a dissident russian journalist has revealed new details of how he faked his murder. was reportedly shown on cheese denied his apartment in kiev but the next to you to leave ukraine security services later said it was part of an elaborate plot to cut his would be killers but there's no concern that it could hold the way journalism journalists to see really challenge reports on from moscow. back from the dead russian journalist our caddie bob gave his second press briefing in his many days and he dives into exactly how he and ukraine security service had faked his own murder itself in boyle and allegedly genuine assassination plot for to give concessions sophie i don't want to have to press to live in the very end i made this shirt with bullet holes in it and i laid on the floor it was real pig's blood
7:30 am
on me griddle and i have poured all over me and i took some of it in my mouth a little doubt they talked some blood into the bullet holes and i was dead. so i mean i was freezing i washed off as much of the blood as i could they gave me a sheet and i read myself minutes and watched the news about what an amazing guy i was. regarding the ethics of carrying out such a deception he had this to say. i didn't have the task to make you believe me or not my task was to stay alive and secure my family this is the only thing in the first thing that i was thinking about the last thing i was thinking about were the standards of journalism to be honest but across the media world worried voices have been speaking up we consider that nothing could justify the fact that. it was organized to create services to protect a journalist i think. the security. general
7:31 am
and. thinks that although we are we welcome the news that is a life there could be some other means to protect a representative from the organization for security and cooperation in europe wrote on twitter relieved the dark. is alive i deplore the decision to spread false information on the life of a journalist it is the duty of the state to provide correct information to the public and the committee to protect journalists said this is extreme action by the ukrainian authorities has the potential. to undermine public trust in journalists and to mute outrage when they are killed in russia where ukraine says the attempt on bob jenkins life originated the government has described the affair as an anti russian provocation the story is strange to say the least i don't know how much the end justifies the means in this story thank god that person is alive it does not
7:32 am
change your attitude towards ukraine a country where being a journalist is dangerous it does not change the core of the situation the only thing this is changed is that thank god this person is still alive the kremlin and state controlled media are drawing parallels between bab janko as fake death and the nazi truck poisoning of the script powells in the u.k. both see russia accused both are described here as equally fantastical the suggestion is that nothing can be believed anymore much will depend on where you cranes investigation goes next police arrested the alleged middleman in the murder plot identified as barry's liver which got a man prosecutors need to back up their claims with evidence only then can you crane argue with more certainty that this was all worth it. moscow. the united nations has made an urgent and critical appeal for donations for its aid budget to help refugees the agency has received less than one third of what it
7:33 am
requested from donors and twenty eight team the money is meant to help more than nine million people with food shelter and education five point five million of them are syrian refugees now 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 reduced with complete cuts in egypt lebanon and jordan by august and education cuts good for students to drop out making them vulnerable to early marriages uncharged labor rule i mean it is senior communications advisor u.n.h.c.r. she says humanitarian needs have long taken a back seat in conflicts like syria. 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
7:34 am
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 for thirteen billion dollars have been poured into the human to turn 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 life we need more we are very grateful to have what had been given but we need more because we what we need what we are saying is that impact cannot be looked at as if it's just short term it's not about just not meeting the humanitarian needs 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 send its kids to school in five years
7:35 am
we're having a whole generation who had 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. the red cross is sending two teams of surgeons own medical supplies to gaza to treat casualties from recent clashes along the border with israel one hundred fifteen palestinians are being killed and more than thirteen thousand injured since the protests began or more thirty of red cross to. will prioritize gunshot wound victims middle east director says garza's health system is on the verge of collapse. imagine some one thousand three hundred fifty people with complex cases will need three to five
7:36 am
operations each per patient a total of more than four thousand surgeries have a fridge will be carried out by the i.c.r.c. and i think such a case load would overwhelm any health system in the world including in geneva let's head to the americas now where there's been nationwide protests in argentina calling for the decriminalization of abortion. they follow months of nationally broadcast hearings on whether to allow women to terminate a pregnancy within the first fourteen weeks a congressional committee is due to vote on the bill which would then still have to pass both houses of parliament trees by reports of hours. it's the last day of the abortion hearings in argentina and those who want to legalize it demonstrated in congress wearing as always the color green that's become
7:37 am
a symbol of the national campaign for free legal and safe abortions. and yet we have been fighting for many years for something like this to happen to separate the state from the church and to the side based on what's better for the country in the past decade we have seen a few reasons for aggressive reforms in argentina like gay marriage and sexual education policies but until now abortion has been off the table mainly because of the pressure by the catholic church in the past two months we have seen over seven hundred people coming here to congress to express their views for and against abortion the debate has polarized the country abortion in argentina easy legal only in case of rape or a fair woman's life is had risk but it is estimated that for. hundred thousand planned the stein abortions are performed every year many women have died most of them are poor the outcome of any vote is by no means certain sure.
7:38 am
i have to defend the right to life that is in our constitution and i cannot go against the right to life since conception but if you ask me if you want a woman to go to prison because of an abortion i say no i think we can protect them in a different way if they want to. this public debate has promoted the visibility of a problem and the consequences it has it helps the health ministry and also szell sectors to begin talking about sexual education educate about contraception and prevent abortions precedent. is against a change in the law but he allowed the debate defying the pressure from the catholic church. was you know more you know some bishops have been very aggressive with lawmakers where they have threatened those who are planning to vote in favor they generate fear they remain authoritarian but it's because they know they will lose. over the past fifteen years the campaign to legalize abortion has presented six bills on six different locations but no one made it to congress many hope it

will be different this time. in a letter addressed to catholics in chile pope francis to never again they ignore the culture of clergy sexual abuse in the country now this comes as friends as plans to send his top two investigators back to chile to gather more information about the crisis the pope also praised victims of sexual abuse in chile for bringing the truth to light despite attempts by church officials to discredit them francis admits neither he nor chile's catholic leaders truly listened to the victims its only possible mass when all they sank the pope calls on everyone that is why it is a letter to all the people of god to overcome the culture of abuse and concealment the other part not only said that there might have been some moments some things but that the catholic church has created a culture of abusing concealment certainly we did not act with speed to investigate to weigh in sanction those whom it concerns. nine people including two children

7:46 am
love this club and also the president who gave me the chance to come as a player to real madrid the scrape club and for that i'll be forever grateful i mean mickelson running back i would have liked to have convinced him but i know his character and the only thing that i can do is to offer my love support and recognition and remember although he knows it at this club will always be his family. the dam played for around madrid between two thousand and one and two thousand and think before replacing rafa benitez as manager in two thousand and sixteen he won one hundred four of the one hundred forty nine games in charge of madrid twenty nine were drawn and that would just sixteen defeat the one nine trophy the no including the champions league titles his departure make absolutely has to be a surprise because he's a young manager relatively forty five years old and has just won the biggest competition in european club football actually world club football three times in succession what a success he's made of that job so to suddenly broke away from that will certainly
7:47 am
have people questioning it and wondering why he's doing it but the more you hear from sit down about this the more it makes sense he's actually feeling that he's taken the club as far as they can go and that he can't go into further success with this side which makes sense when you think about it brown would do it of course already deserved triumph in the champions league but there is no guarantee that they're going to build on that for next season they do need to make changes and now the club you say they have to do that with a new manager actually i think there's a bigger picture here if you look at the french national team the french football association are understandably huge fans of that and everything he did for them as a player and now what he's achieving as a manager and they would like him managing the national take didier de sean has been in the job for six years now which is a long time for a national manager he takes them to the world cup in washington i don't think the shop will carry on beyond that world cup and it will be
