4:14 am
always done that and we will keep doing that we are always looking for compromises this pressure will come to an end when our western partners will realize that the methods they employ are ineffective counterproductive and harmful to everyone russia has highly sophisticated new weapons in development negotiate with russia on global affairs he urged or risk escalating conflict when you minute there was the understanding that the third world war will be the end of civilization this understanding must restrain as from extreme and dangerous steps in the international arena russia's renewed capacity for hard power projection is most apparent right now in syria and putin said there is no immediate end to russia's military involvement. in the horde of the. our forces are deployed there to secure russia's interests in this vital region of the world which is very close to our territory and they will remain there as long as it is beneficial for russia it

a lecturer in spanish studies aston university in the u.k. he says the number of women in the cabinet is a statement of intent from a new prime minister. the socialist party has really a history of trying to tackle these issues and gender equality has been one of their main social agendas in a country like spain where there are certain charges he's about on women's rights particularly with these divisions that exist in social issues within the local authority and the socialist bar this is pretty much following the same tradition i would say of this soldier's body i would assert that he is sending a strong message and i think is certainly a message to the new more left wing areas of net we already seen in spain as well so i think it's an important message and let's hope it goes beyond mere symbolism that he actually translates into some real positive change scientists from the u.s. space agency nasa say the curiosity rover has discovered the best evidence yet that

4:21 am
there are the strains coming up next. ok you're in the stream and i'm really good be glad today a story pitch right a member of our community who sadly we're discussing how a first of its kind of accident is challenging stereotypes about refugee camps tweet us your thoughts or comments and you can put them into a you tube chat and you too could be in the stream. where many people picture a refugee camp they see
4:22 am
a sprawling mass of helpless individuals but the reality is often the opposite a growing number of camps are booming enclaves of business innovation and culture challenging the stereotypes around refugees is one mission of tax cuts home account or first of its kind of bent for tax influential conference network that hosts online talks on a range of scientific cultural and academic topics the gathering is being held at the cooma refugee camp in northwestern kenya joining us from kumar to discuss this mr fleming she's the chief spokesperson for the u.n. h.c.r. one of the co-hosts of ted can my camp at eight and it is a fashion model who was born in cooma after her family fled civil war in somalia in melbourne australia mccord to what she's also a former kakuma refugee who now works as a multicultural development director for this trainee and football league in the united states or who he's an economic as
4:23 am
a publicist who studies the social economies of refugee camps hello everybody it's so good to have you in the stream mode. where were you when this idea popped into your hate ted x. cookoo my camp well i've had a relationship with ted and i've seen the power of public. and i just thought you know. bring a ted x. event to a refugee camp and allow refugees to be the speakers for change and not just refugees but people from refugees like lima and people who care about changing the narrative. changing the approach to refugees around the world so yeah it was a vision that was a dream. actually we kind of thought we were crazy because it was logistically quite a feat but as you see today from those images are amazing logistics team and kenyan company managed to set up a state of the art facility
4:24 am
a tent in the middle of the of a secondary school in the middle of a very remote refugee camp you have to imagine it's a four hour drive from nairobi i'm very bumpy road. the road the bridge was actually washed out a week before and when the whole quest the whole event was being called into question anyway was there no it may be. that sounds all so little it sounds like what was i thinking what we thinking how can we get this done. i know i think i would i don't know if it's true but i would say it must be the most logistically challenging at events that has our ted x. event that was ever staged so but. it's definitely going to be one of the most moving because the speakers are just absolutely incredible and one of them is here with us today. well melissa one of the signs of what you just mentioned that this
4:25 am
is going to be incredible is the buzz online because it's almost palpable this is collins on twitter who says the text means a lot it has been well received with lots of excitement and the main reason is that cocoon being an old camp of over twenty five years the risk of its people being forgotten are real as new emergencies come up ted x. will show the world what kakuma is made of him i want to give that to you because you were born in the camp what does it feel like for you to go back for the first time why did you say yes to tax. i said yes to tax. i mean it's that. i didn't think that it could possibly bring me back to kakuma like it was almost like a perfect two and one you know i come back home for the first time and also doing my first. so it's still very surreal i've been having like. like like just like going off on my own for
4:26 am
a little bit just like. like i'm here i'm home like. i played on and i just had so many flashbacks going from one camp so another and i can't even really put into words but it just feels incredibly amazing to be here and to also get to meet other incredible speakers that are also going to. i just want to remind everybody. that case you need reminding i want to hear from my instagram on. this was a young youngster who was born in a refugee camp and now he's on fashion plate everywhere she's on runways all over the world what is the reception you are getting help from people knowing that you can from the same community that they live in right now. i think it's worth fighting time you know like a lot of girls follow my journey not just muslim girls but really young girls will come from maybe similar backgrounds i think that's why my journey has been so
4:27 am
impossible so many people because everybody kind of can relate to it from a different point of view like i got girls from a small town of let's say wisconsin who could relate to being from a small town and like making in the fashion industry and then i get a lot of girls from the muslim community a lot of good job wearing women who tell me how grateful that they are so finally you know. it's amazing like i can't even believe how much has changed to think like three years ago i could never pick up a magazine and flip through the inside pages and see somebody that dressed like me and just a little over a year and a half i raised nine coverage so if i quite the journey through listening to their finishing to these changes and idea of a ten day include macapp this is somewhere that you've been visiting you've been studying for the last decade when you first heard of the idea what was your reaction. to the great idea of the funtastic idea
4:28 am
because it's some could. actually actually plague me that we hug a conception of refugees as hopeless and get a comment is actually one of the most well studied comes in the would there be market dynamics in greece which is like my so going i was one of the first few people to go in. and it holds you because you actually see you with the sympathy. and that's what does to texas going to do because what it's going to do is it's going to speak about. about a place that seems to be all despair but it's good to speak about success and it's also going to talk about resilience the human fighting spirit in the worst of temperatures sometimes in the biggest of despair so i want to give our viewers who are not to feel you're familiar with. a little taste from our online audience of
4:29 am
what life is like there this is fred who says could come as a can't made up mainly of young people about sixty percent of the population is under eighteen years of age in the camp residents are inspired by the tough life in the camp to identify other coping mechanisms i.e. small businesses fashion sports performing arts and education now with that said we got a video comment from someone who explains that the camp has changed over the years this is a delight he mirror a and he is now in cuckoo my he's an independent journalist and he's there for this weekend have a listen to what he told the stream committed you come in with the. amount of development in the last six years it has to be from this time. don't be distracted we've seen you on instructions and now with the help of going into kenya and they love to get me. started to study themselves
4:30 am
from an instructor as if you just come you. used to have different cultural activities they've given classes on music. and. so as he mentions from semi-permanent structures to permanent structures their activities for the youth what do you remember form from your time with living there i know that you were in kenya for twelve years. i am what i remember then. as he said i think the landscape has changed just being here in the last forty years and you know the stories are gone back to kakuma and then when i was there is now groups what we call group and i was in a group called twenty one i am in zone three and you know i remember you know us in our little group you know. why i go into. and stuff like that so i am to see
4:31 am
now that there is more people than the one who are back there and you know just the resources that are now available for those people actually because that meant me too much to now miss my sports at school and i was the what person the year. that it has changed dramatically i can't i have to ask pictures thank you for sending us pictures so this one here. i know one of these people must be a mom and then one of the must be you will the one that year after i am the one with the nuns are. i love that do you remember this photograph i am actually at why i honestly can't but luckily one of my cousins had had it and the little that is my auntie. are not my grandma and we show in
4:32 am
another picture here. very vibrant who paper and who are the kids. i've done one of them is you yes in the blue dress that. my my little. brother's just there and in my two cousins and you know one of things we've been talking about is the possibilities in the potential for effigies i want to show people one more picture here which brings us more up to date and the passion that you have now and how that happened because people don't always think the refugees have a future but your future is incredible your present is incredible tell us how that happened and why eating out i am so i am so. let's try and get men i remember coming here i just wanted to you know do something to kind of get in this you know in society so i started applying i felt fully i'm
4:33 am
again that and i'm really and one of the main reasons why i strayed in was football everybody who hasn't heard of it it looks a little bit like rugby but don't tell a stray into that now and they'll get enraged. and i think one of the reasons why i thought of. him a lot of my students are young you know or young people that come to countries that was fairly are we call it home now to you know pursue their dreams and you know whatever it is and they want to do for me as a young girl that always want to be what they are so being one of the africans in there. by men well me and specially. you know my stories that are my own. i want to share this comment we just got live on you tube this person says the energy of the young people and it is inspiring i've been there to teach and i always learn so much from them about resilience about faith
4:34 am
and hope in a place that people think as a dead end and to illustrate that point just a little bit more we got a video comment from someone in this is john he's the director of the youth voices and the camp and this is what he told us about taking those voices and putting them to good use have a listen. fortunately. it will. be different if. you will. when they get. one. more. big soon. you. know he mentions nurturing voices a creative place where you can then put their talents to good use and one of those
4:35 am
uses is the flourishing business community that we've seen there can you talk to us about golf. you know so basically kakuma town itself was a pastoral market and there were these three or four somali trader the came there in the one nine hundred sixty s. so when the camp was built there was there was already an infrastructure of whole import export and as the camp citizens decided that they were not going to remain fully reliant not just for the daily nutritional needs but for their social needs for feasting for celebrations but that they needed more you see all these markets essentially essentially come up and those four or five wholesalers have created this extremely efficient system and network of of providing goods across across the cab they help new businesses about the train a lot of different people and and and one of the things is that this commercial
4:36 am
economy based on my recess essentially provides that missing link so when you welcome a child into the world or you're saying goodbye to someone who's just parted i mean as much as the food given by the relief mission helps you don't you don't welcome somebody or you don't you don't say goodbye to them with oil beans and corn you need something that is culturally appropriate and and this commercial economy essentially hope to gain that little bit of normalcy sometimes you just want to buy candy for your child sometimes you want to celebrate if star did during the muslim after muslim class daily and so it helps you to feel normal and through this normality you actually gain dignity because you gain some months of the life you had before and you also have a glimpse of the life of the two in vision for yourself but you're building it in the camp or you're supposed to be transience to realize i can hope through the seventy research you think of to places like refugee camps like i should happen and
4:37 am
we think i mean paul leaf but there's something about the way that you can do students one which we. connects you with a community that has a picture here of you at a wedding tell us a little bit more about that oh yes this reading was essentially. this is the poor assertion so i'm starting with the bride and the groom and it was this wonderful day in which of course there was a little bickering between the bride's mother and the groom's when you say of course. because it's a wedding it's a wedding and you know like emotions are fraud this two families coming together oh you know humans love to make things complex and this was one of those there was a last minute to complain about the level of the food and then myself and the grooms when they're all trying to go to go it's a wedding it could be a wedding anywhere in the world they're saying wedding functions i think there is any way i will one of the things you're talking about and you can talk about is the
4:38 am
economy of refugee camps like a cooma and recently the i have seen did a report the international finance corporation report about the level of entrepreneurship that's happening cocoon i want to show you the ingenuity the creativity of the refugees who live there have a look. at them and a lot of them are some money from will be shared with. other donors if you give a good word on a view that you clearly cannot run no you got to do good work and we don't want to go over this well why do you need to borrow my god i just took it out of my forgotten one of the only time i was out of the bank coming from somalia mogadishu i come here because i think i would have this one to collect in terms of for the. internet service provider income from. the
4:39 am
above. thank you either so we will know us it. he said i think i know what you're trying to do hail the u.n. it's trying to do in the well bank and well the interested parties is to look at refugee camps as not leslie button and people as helpless but as entrepreneur as people who have incredible few changes and also we may be rethinking what a refugee camp can be and should be because so many of them on now running for a long time decades even is that behind the idea of text to cooma is that what you're trying to do just change people's attitudes totally. but we're also trying to change the system and the approach we want to see refugee camps as relics of
4:40 am
history really. we don't have places where populations just the people who have fled the refugees are sequestered in an isolated spot and have no connection with the host community we want to see integrated communities and that's what we're doing here is there's the older section of the. cap and then there's a new section and it's called caliban and this is something that we really wanted to highlight here it represents our new approach that's going to go lobel to refugee response and that is that there are settlements that are built that are completely integrated with the local community where the local community benefits and where we attract international development assistance as well as a set as well as private investment and you know we have a governor here and into cronic county which is the county and which. is based who is convinced that the presence of refugees has been
4:41 am
a tremendous benefit. for the development of his county which was one of the poorest in kenya he's an enlightened politician but we now have the reports like the i.o.c. report that you just showed that proved actually that the economy has grown and that everybody is benefiting from the presence of refugees this is a message that we want to spend globally. and to show also through this tax event here in cooma i think that's important because as much enthusiasm is there is online we're also seeing reminders this is fred who says life in the camp is full of challenges only one percent of the population gets a chance to be resettled overseas meaning that the remaining ninety nine percent has to make themselves comfortable and useful in the camp another person writes in saying what comes to mind and questions to ask is does this mean the camps will never be closed or the camps inhabitants now considered kenyans and will they ever
4:42 am
be resettled. i'm wondering when you see tough questions like this what comes to mind how do you respond to people who wonder about what happens to those who aren't able to leave the camps. hardest thing hearing as a former reckon she is when people say or ask. why are they all coming here and i mean that's a fair question but it's also important to know that we are among the lucky few that do get to make it you know it's a very small percentage a percentage of refugees that do get to resettle in places like america or england and although it's challenging i also am grateful that we do have people asking those hard questions because it has always kept me in check like that's what motivates me to do my best to work hard in school to make the most out of this amazing privilege that i got because i understand that for my ticket into america i
4:43 am
know there's millions of kids that would well never have that opportunity but i think i could also give back and i think it's the refugees who resettled into places like america. the u.k. and places like that that can really take advantage of all the opportunities that their host country offers but also don't forget where you came from don't forget your roots and warrant come back it's important to. really motivate and inspire the kids that are still in the camps that they too have led me on the border is or just a dream beyond the refugee camp and that they can excel if they really work hard you know what's behind that note. and the weather linda. usually responded i you know i asked people i live in the western world using opportunities now we have yet to get back to those in the refugee camp because then they need our inspiration and you have a chance and having people at lehman there really will highlight that you know want
4:44 am
for those and anything and you know they can they can live in the refugee camps in the great in the dream and then have to change countries and that's what i see you know melissa use you for to get the whole guide but the fast we're almost at the end of that yes because this was something that melissa actually spoke about the studies that we did i was part of the economic and social impact study done by the world bank and i led the social impact study the economists found that the refugee camp adds a non-trivial six percent to the to recover economy and we actually found that people living the true carnal living immediately around kakuma camps have far better health and psychosocial stress and their stress is about employment not about food or hunger intervention for us is about whether the children will get
4:45 am
educated or not and so the economy of the refugee camp has a tremendous net positive benefits on the on the economy and the u.n. this year was really the one that spearheaded this study got the world bank and academics together and it's a and essentially and essentially proved to the governors that the rights that refugees are not a burden but they're actually a positive and to the question of taxpayers' money and the refugees are paying more than their share the whole thank you so much adding the economic angle to our conversation i will show you some of the line up here for tax because i can't have a look here my. i was breaking into shuttle programming to bring you a white house while we are watching mike compare the secretary us giving a press conference. i i we don't think about it in terms of who has the upper hand we know there's been a long intractable challenge it's gone on for decades president said repeatedly prettier than this traditions were prepared to do what we've done already it's not
4:46 am
about who has the upper hand it's about trying to find a way for the two sides can come to an understanding where we can get concrete steps not just words that resolve this jail. cell that does not leave soon hear very much added this up do you think that's a pretty dire roach and also i'm going to get your reaction to a giuliani's comments that he just got back on his own and then from the summit to go back on whether you think you should be weighing in on the international affairs and whether you agree with that assessment so with respect your second questions i took him as i mean a small room and not being serious about the comments i think he was it was a bit in jest and he said and i said something or we're never off or we're moving forward we're focused on the important things. i know rudy rudy really doesn't speak for the administration when it comes to this negotiation the set of
4:47 am
issues. you know with respect your first question you know progress we're we're making progress into a inch and we're going to travel there this is different the approach the president trying to stake in this fundamentally different in the past there have been months and months of detail negotiations they got nowhere that this has already driven us to a place we've not been able to achieve before. it was your secretary the president said today that if this thing that we're meeting goes well we'd like to bring you down to washington for further meetings has kim jong un invited the president to come. north korea so i don't want to talk to you about the conversations that have been had between the north korean side and and the united states i'll leave that for the president to talk to but but i do want to get to him this comes back to the other question that you asked about the president's preparation. so in my previous role and i've said this before you can look it up there were few days that i left
4:48 am
the oval office after having briefed the president that we didn't talk about north korea so over months and months days and days president trump received has been receiving briefings on this issue about the military aspects of it the commercial economic aspects of it the history of the relationship and in the past few months there have been near daily briefings including today where we have been providing the president all the information that he needs and i'm i am very confident the president will be fully prepared when he meets with north korean counterpart just how the man twice now when you tell us about what opinions you more. as a person. so i haven't spent that much time with them. what i have said publicly is he. has indicated to me personally that he is prepared to denuclearize that he understands that the current model doesn't work that he's prepared to denuclearize and that too he understands that we
4:49 am
can't do it the way we've done it before that this has to be big and bold and we have to agree to making major changes we can't step through this over years but rather need to. acknowledge it will take some amount of time that this doesn't happen instantaneously but that the model for succeeding security assurances and political normalization and denuclearization completely verifiably and irreversibly . for that to take place we got to make we've got to make bold decisions and i'm i'm hopeful that chairman kim jong un is prepared to make that decision for his country a big shift in history t.j. understanding of his security. and he said that that hasn't happened here against the war in north korea. we have seen and this image change and that him that the new mission come in they can i'm not i'm going
4:50 am
to change the time on him as a difference in the long term security for our. party and for him going to look we were going to have to do things that convinced chairman kim that that's the case that that's what that's what we have to do so let me give you an example we are hopeful that we will put ourselves in a position where we can do something the previous administration didn't do where they signed a flimsy piece of paper and were hoping to submit a document that congress would also have a say and that would give currency and strength and a long into the process so that when the administration to do changes they inevitably do and this one will six and a half years from now. when that takes place that chairman kim will have comfort that american policy will continue to down the same path that we're on the course that we hope we're able to set in singapore think see things think very hard are first of all three things on your. p.c.
4:51 am
i don't think that congress can sign off on are you referring to treat the second time to happen more. often the right things and allies from north korea to be involved with missiles is that a decision for the president in any position. we thought we'd check him that he's with the missile program weapons also be part of that search finally i just want to tell the president what will the bifocal so i'll leave the white house to talk about the format of the meetings when the time is right with respect to the liberation risk it's very real there is a history of that with respect to north korea and some of our other difficult challenges in the world today they are connected the reason you want complete verifiable and irreversible is precisely that to the extent there remain stockpiles knowledge bases warehouses systems infrastructure fissile material production facilities i could go on to the extent those remain the risk of proliferation continues and it's our aim through the c.b.i. the process and providing the security assurances that chairman kim will want that
4:52 am
we can greatly reduce the risk the proliferation ever happens as a result of north korean action was over one more concern. there are literally ready to say. there are. consequences if you explain to the president when he's gone from talking about defining success to the nuclear station and. now talking about the need for more media can you explain what you have been listening to it might pompei or the u.s. secretary of state's giving a press conference here at the white house where he said that discussions with the president himself being on for months about the north korean issue but he also added the only result that the president would accept at the upcoming summit and sing the poll would be denuclearized saying that's up from a fun now next up it's the war in june i'll be back in about half an hour limbaugh news don't go away.
