10:01 pm
of the world's most endangered species have increased. the u.s. president donald trump says he'll meet north korea's leader kim jong un on june twelfth in singapore he made the statement after hosting canvas top aide out the white house came young child's hand delivered a letter to chong from kim jong un and stayed in the oval office with the president for almost two hours the former spy chief is the most senior north korean to hold talks at the white house since a senior i'm voight met former president bill clinton in the two thousand. we're meeting with the chairman on june twelfth and i think it's probably going to be a very successful ultimately a successful process will soon remember what i say we will see what we will see but i think it's going to be a process that we deserve to have i mean we've really deserved
10:02 pm
a they want it we think it's important and i think we would be making a big mistake if we didn't have it i think we're going to have a relationship and it'll start in june well let's go lights are all white house correspondent kimberly helka who was watching all of that statement that donald chung maint and so we have a summit on we don't really have an expectation though that it's going to be a good deal straightaway. that's right what we seem to be able to glean from the president's statement speaking there on the south lawn of the white house is that this is the start of what he expects to be a series of meetings to get some sort of agreement agreement on what nuclearize ation that is the end state that the united states is looking for but a lot of news coming out of that oval office meeting that historic meeting the first time in eighteen years that north korea and given the top financial sanctions in place by the united states even individual sanctions including the vice chair of
10:03 pm
north korea kim yong chill that that even occurred because the president speaking following that meeting at the departure alongside his u.s. secretary of state pompei oh who up to this point had been the only member of the administration to personally travel twice to north korea meeting with the north korean leader they say in fact that this is the start of a relationship in the president's words as you heard there just a moment ago starting on june twelfth but that he will not sign something it's a process that will begin also still in place are those sanctions but we saw the president dialing back on some of that rhetoric that has been used by the united states repeatedly that maximum pressure campaign while those strict financial sanctions still in place the wording is different when it comes to diplomacy it's all about these incremental movements and wording and we certainly are seeing from a president who once was threatening fire and fury saying he's not going to use the
10:04 pm
phrase maximum pressure anymore he also in that meeting suv thanked japan and south korea and even given the complicated relationship between the united states and china thank chinese president xi for getting to this point after years in his view of hostility and hatred he believes that this is an opportunity not only for the united states but for north korea allowing north korea he believes to move forward because of a strategic shift in thinking that could ultimately achieve denuclearize. zation and potentially bring the north korean economy into the modern global financial system can learn how do you say when you were talking a little earlier to my colleague but in the end donald trump is not to diplomats he's a businessman is very used to taking things right to the last second and pushing a deal forward and you mentioned the sanctions he did say we just discussed sanctions but he did say they are the hundred or so sanctions still ready to go if the talks break down they could still be implemented i mean to his style of
10:05 pm
diplomacy still very much kind of i don't know carrots and sticks. it's absolutely carrots and sticks and it's also very typical of what you'd see for a new york real estate business deal with a background that donald trump has come from versus diplomacy but in this case diplomacy in the eyes of the truck administration wasn't working so this radical approach which many people are nervous about because of donald trump's political naiveté his diplomatic you have a tale of lack of experience that much could go wrong on june twelfth when these two leaders get side by side certainly there's a concern about a lack of experience certainly there is the concern that this is giving a profile and validation on the world stage for the north korean leader something he has sought for some time and you also talked about donald trump and his sort of reality t.v. show background and certainly we saw elements of that as they exited the oval
10:06 pm
office as well because that letter that was being handled livered by the vice chair kim young told to the u.s. president donald trump saying that he didn't open it asking the media do you want to see the contents of course we do we want to see the content of that letter he didn't open it he's donald trump it's keeping us in suspense saying that maybe he will make the content public it's very typical of a television producer keeping its audience hanging that's exactly what donald trump . doing building anticipation towards this climatic moment what he says will be the start of a relationship between the united states and north korea at the summit that was called off now back on for june twelfth in singapore do you feel what your reality t.v. show sometimes don't we can relate how good thanks very much speaking to us there from the white house. a palestinian paramedic ounce being killed by israeli forces during protests along
10:07 pm
the gaza border twenty one year old volunteer paramedic john had been volunteering at the border since march when weekly friday demonstrations began several more palestinians have been injured when the united nations security council is set to hear a q eighty resolution calling for the protection of palestinians in gaza and the occupied west bank from britain have criticized the draft for lacking specific details while the u.s. has said it will inevitably veto the resolution or diplomatic editor james bays joins me now from the united nations in new york james i think kuwait was putting together this resolution or even a couple of weeks ago where they've had to water down the wording somewhat. they had to water down the wording and they've come up with a resolution that they believe most of the security council can support we have live pictures of the security council chamber it's almost empty where they were
10:08 pm
going to vote on this resolution they are not now right now voting on the resolution a moment ago we saw lots of ambassadors huddled around vaseline who is the russian ambassador and who took over the president of the security council on this the first of the month the problem is this that there is a kuwaiti draft but the u.s. has now come up with what it says are amendments to that draft and there is a big round going on about the procedure of how to deal with this this is the original quake the draft calls for the security council to consider how to protect palestinian civilians well the americans are saying that they've amended that draft but if you just look at the items in red on their version where they crossed out things from the clay tea version if you call that an amendment it's pretty clear it's a very substantial amendment and most of the members of the security council believe it's a separate resolution so there's that's when you get into the weeds of the procedure
10:09 pm
and if it is a separate resolution then the normal procedure is the kuwaiti one would get voted on first and then the u.s. version but the u.s. is saying no it's not it's not a separate draft it's amendments to the draft and that brings up all sorts of arcane procedural rules one even suggesting that the security council would then go line by line voting on each change from the u.s. to the kuwaiti version and i can tell you other diplomats are fuming about this they believe that the u.s. is playing procedural tricks to try and bog this all down what's happened now is the ambassadors of left the security council chamber to go on to the next door room which is called the consultations room where they're having a private chat about how to deal with. i can tell you that some ambassadors a very annoyed with the u.s. tactics which they fear risk turning the security council into a circus james without being a killjoy here even if we do get some form of words they can port to the security
10:10 pm
council what is the likelihood that it's going to pass with obviously the five key member permanent member states always getting a veto that will end up throwing the whole thing well the all is trying to predict the votes is a bit of a dangerous game but i can tell you straight away that the kuwait version as it stands will not pass because the u.s. has said it will deal we'll its veto nikki haley again i think has annoyed other members of the security council a very strong statement she put out nearly twenty four hours ago now where she said this resolution was morally bankrupt and then if you look at the u.s. amendments or the u.s. draft whichever way you see it if that was put to a vote right now i don't know but i think it's probably going to be very difficult for the u.s. to get the nine votes it needs for it to be passed i don't think anyone would
10:11 pm
necessarily veto that but it wouldn't get the nine votes so you have all this activity and in the end i think it's highly likely that nothing's going to come out of it nothing that will in any way help either israelis or palestinians and i hate to put on the spot james but what are we likely to see now are they going to come out of that consultation room and start debating whether we can actually watch because we were hoping to to actually what you know witness it live or are they going to stay in their little rooms. well i mean the rules on how you proceed at this point are not really clear there are different precedents from different dates in the past so there will be people arguing different cases in that consultation room and in the end if they really are deadlocked they can have a procedural vote they can even have a number of different procedural votes of how the security council will handle things and which of these the resolution and the amendments from the americans which one will be voted on first i think that is likely the way it will proceed
10:12 pm
there is of course one other possibility given the things are so deadlocked they could decide to perspire in this meeting all together and come back tomorrow or that or a day in the next few days many thanks to i suppose that giving us all the latest from the united nations now a french newspaper is reporting that sound here rabia is threatening military action against capital if it acquires russian weapons and among the newspaper says the saudi crown prince says written to the french president to warn that it is ready to retaliate if cats are acquired c s four hundred craft defense system the paper says the crown prince asked emanuel not quote to put pressure on cattle not survive the weapons. to moscow says in january that his country intended to acquire the missile system saudi arabia along with the u.a.e. grain cut off relations with cattle last year for more on this middle east analysts
10:13 pm
new joins me now live from washington d.c. thanks very much for coming on to al-jazeera this is the on the verse survey of the blockade it smells a little bit like saudi arabia just trying to create some sort of attention some chaos surrounding this very day. i think that the couple of events taking shape that helps inform why this was leaked now the first element that the crown prince of the united arab emirate mohammed bin ziad who is largely seen in the region and in washington as the one who is driving to crisis he met today with the president of lot amir putin of russia and then at the same time you have this letter from mohammed bin psalm on of saudi arabia warning to french against allegedly buying this russian weapon system so this is really very much trying to attempt to create more psychological warfare because for the past six and
10:14 pm
eight or eight months g.c.c. crisis has really evolved into a prolonged statement stalemate i want do you think the reaction will be if indeed saudi arabia takes this further i mean they are threatening threatening military action on cats obviously cats one is a huge american base on its very soil but also has relations with various countries that i would have thought would be stepping in if saudi arabia starts to even build on this escalate on this. i think it's clear that whatever momentum the. saudi led blockade had last year when they first initiated a crisis that momentum is no longer there at this point the facts of the crisis are well established and qatar enjoys broad international support not just from president trump and present more coal and the european union and china and russia as well so i would say that this is really are diverging attempted. to create more
10:15 pm
attention to this issue especially when you look at earlier this afternoon as you reported in your segment president trump is now confirming his meeting with kim jong il and of north korea so this is just a and attempt to create an a new storm in a water cup too for you to use a cliche when you think the russian reaction will be obvious they will be right dependent on whether russia would decide to sell this system indeed to catalogue do you think they will react favorably i want the saudis to say. my understanding is that although the countries have said that they are open to studying water to acquire this anti-missile system or not my understanding is that washington does not want to make it to our east or anyone in the gulf for that matter to acquire this weapon system so this is really does is really a fake outrage if you will. think our new graphic you very much for joining us with your thoughts on the south thank you. still to come on al-jazeera the c.e.o.
