9:42 pm
away from rio after twelve hours tiny doses of a no longer detectable in urine samples so is the myth of clean football to be believed retired player right world champion in one thousand nine hundred four is skeptical. so. as to be. really my origins vital to those. sports working to control the strain of the strain of body of he used to look at as a future boy as he would inject went into that it is a. badge movement with my i was there with my shorty there was that they may perceive him as massive amounts of muscle. them being. ripped out of some fused and . if we witnessed this that specter. of dementia.

9:49 pm
friends with china's president xi as they deepen their alliance. also ahead five days after mount for a go erupts in guatemala more people are moved to safety and the number of dead rises. and live from one of the world's biggest camps refugees in kenya share their stories with a global audience. i'm joined again by the day sports including the golden state warriors a crowned n.b.a. champions for the second straight season i'll have all the action later this he's out. but first donald trump and his closest allies are trying to bridge their differences at a rather testy g. seven summit but it's unlikely that they'll see eye to eye on the most contentious issues like trade and trumps an early departure is creating uncertainty as to
9:50 pm
whether they'll even issue a joint communique the u.s. president is due to fly to singapore the his a highly anticipated meeting with the north korean leader kim jong. diplomatic editor james bays is there waiting for president and indeed the north korean leader in singapore we'll go live to him in just a while first said let's talk to our correspondent. hendren who is in quebec city and john it has been a fairly fraught couple of hours hasn't it they haven't got that long to go before president trump jets out of canada to his next next business item what is the scenario like there in canada. well they've been calling it the g. six plus one martini meaning the u.s. has been completely isolated since the start and that's because before donald trump came here he launched what the others view as it an assault on the global trading system by raising tariffs on all of these members on steel and aluminum there was
9:51 pm
a war of words some tweets from trump back talking about the unfairness of trade toward the u.s. and in fact since he's been here he has insisted on pushing forward that line everybody had hoped to walk him back on those tariffs to get him to remove them and instead he's been complaining about the unfair trade practices in his view of europe and canada so he really has given no ground here as you said he's here arrives about an hour late he is leaving early hours before this session is over and this morning at a breakfast session where they all met his chair was empty until he entered partway through if a music student walks into your class late and leaves early you can gauge that there's a lack of enthusiasm there and on the case of donald trump he's just not a multilateralist despite the fact that he gets involved in many of these multilateral institutions and has been talking the language of diplomacy very nicely since he has been here he is operating on his own in an agreement with north

korea that he's trying to forge which james will talk about of course that whereas barack obama was working in a group of other nations when it comes to nafta the north american free trade agreement now wants to negotiate separate agreements with canada and mexico so that speaks to his general approach in this kind of institution it is simply not one that his heart is fully into we put together a story on the tensions here at the summit and this is what we found. leaders of seven of the world's wealthiest nations made a show of unity in a fractured family pleasure to have you here. and it's been really great hours earlier. after leaders of the g seven annual summit in canada complained the u.s. tariffs trump was less diplomatic. like well what would you win the war for they don't mention the fact that they trade barriers against farm are isolated on trade trump appeared vaguely hopeful in meetings with french president emanuel mccrone

and the summits host canadian president justin trudeau their relationship is probably better as good or better than it's ever been. and i think we'll get to something very beneficial to canada and to the united states believes hours before the summit ends on saturday that makes it unclear whether the u.s. will sign on to an annual g seven agreement usually a formality or if it does whether that agreement will mention trade of the situations of deep positions of a clear the president of u.s. things the u.s. have been treated in an unfair way by you about those who don't want to nuke or sit on the trump also proposed allowing russia back into an expanded g. eight after russia was the jek did for the two thousand and fourteen invasion of ukraine italy's g.'s f. a conti agreed but canada's foreign minister voiced the view of the rest of the g seven canada's position is absolutely clear and that there are no grounds

whatsoever for bringing russia with its current behavior bat into the g seven the diplomatic drama inside the meeting is not matched on the streets two hours drive from the summit in charlevoix nine thousand well armed police outnumber the few hundred peaceful demonstrators. martine some officials here have described this summit mood as cortisol at the end i guess a step above hostile but certainly not friendly there have been efforts to draft a statement according to some here and when it came to if the phrase rule based international order the us apparently object. that's standard boilerplate for international organizations working together that gives you kind of an indication that it may not be possible for that joint statement to be signed by all seven parties but we should know soon because donald trump is on the verge of leaving here just about an hour and a half from now so we'll find out soon whether that's going to happen or whether
9:55 pm
they're going to send him e-mail some some statement he can later signed that of course would not be the unified picture that people here want to send more jeanne yes ok thank you for that john hendren there live in quebec city now let's go to james base at diplomatic editor who's in singapore and james you can't help but be struck by the the fruit tensions that president trump is experiencing with his best friends and yet there's a lot of optimism and lots of smiles when it comes to meeting with one of the longest standing. enemies all misadventure is certainly for the united states as he goes on his way now to singapore. the contrast is really telling martine i've been attending g seven g eight meetings for more than twenty years watching this one from a far i've never seen the us forget about russia which was in the g eight but the other g seven its key allies at loggerheads like this any time during that period
9:56 pm
real tensions there and no negative comments being made about north korea and supreme leader kim who is on his way and is arriving here as is president trump in the coming hours and yes of course he is the leader of a country that threatened nuclear warfare in nuclear missiles towards the united states and a country that human rights organizations believe is one of the worst offenders on earth. and james the fact that both leaders are arriving in town pretty early before their shared chilled meeting is about two days i mean is that calls for encouragement does that mean that there might be even more engagement between the two sides. it's certainly going to be a longer period of time in singapore than we first expected they are both do here on sunday they do not sit down face to face until choose day president trump has
9:57 pm
said it could be one day or perhaps two days of meetings so they will be here for some considerable time i think the reason certainly for the u.s. president to come here is the fact that he's done that g. seven summit which will have been particularly fraught a particularly grueling and it gives him some time to relax and i think some of his staff will be hoping it gives him some time to prepare because he is at a disadvantage here yes he's the man who says he wrote the book the art of the deal and knows how to carry out a business deal but this is something much more complex than that and of course chairman kim is someone who intimately knows the history and. the secrets of his country and of his nuclear program even if donald trump was the greatest expert on nuclear weapons the u.s. even the cia don't even know all the details of what north korea has all right for
9:58 pm
now jane thank you very much james bays our diplomatic editor in singapore awaiting that historic meeting between the north korean leader and the u.s. president and one of the issues that is likely not to be on the table is going to be the issue of north korea and its human rights it is regarded as one of the most repressive countries in the world according to the u.n. there are about one hundred thousand political prisoners and they're in detention camps and on top of that many foreigners are prevented from leaving we have this report now from our correspondent wayne hay. in south korea there are many emotions about the changing relationship with north korea among small vocal nationalist groups there is suspicion about pyongyang's motives that concerned even paranoid that south korea is about to be engulfed by communism away from the loud rallies there are those for whom the cross border and gauge went off as a glimmer of hope in what is often seemed
9:59 pm
a hopeless situation. it's hard to expect too much but we need to see how it goes we're putting all if it's together in the hope there are no issues will be discussed in this summit with north korea those issues are abductions and other human rights abuses that victims and their families believe need to be on the agenda in singapore one inch holes father when one was on a plane in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine when it was hijacked by a north korean agent most of the passengers were eventually allowed to return to the south but when one who's now eighty one wasn't among them as well as abductions there are countless other human rights abuses that continue to take place in north korea including torture and public executions the united nations says the acts may amount to crimes against humanity words you probably won't hear used when donald trump meets kim jong il and some experts believe raising human rights in the first meeting may be too sensitive japan's government disagrees and has been pushing for
10:00 pm
the issue of abductions to be discussed north korea admitted kidnapping thirteen japanese in the one nine hundred seventy s. and eighty's to train is spies some have been returned but japan's government suspects there may be hundreds still in north korea there are other nationalities too like this woman seen in the background of a photo taken on a north korean beach family members believe it's a no chip pan joy a thai woman who disappeared from macau in one nine hundred seventy eight's. i have a lot of hope that south korea japan and the u.s. will push the north korean abduction issue and i will be able to meet soon at this stage the new diplomatic face of north korea is largely viewed as positive but for many it will mean nothing if the people they've been waiting decades to see aren't allowed to come home when hey al-jazeera soul. a saying in.
