jong un has landed in singapore ahead of a summit with u.s. president donald trump these are pictures of him with the singapore and foreign minister cameron trying to meet there on choose day to discuss denuclearization plans hours ago trump left the g. seven summit in canada for singapore trump called the talks a one time shot at peace the white house is hoping the summit will begin a process that eventually leads to an end to pyongyang's nuclear program. and trump has asked us represents is not to endorse the joint communique on trade put out by g seven leaders in canada the us president changed his mind following comments by canada's prime minister at a news conference. this get more now on the top story in the lead up to the singapore summit some veteran diplomats in the u.s. are concerned the president isn't well enough prepared for the negotiations so he's likely to come out of the meeting room the strongest diplomatic editor james bays
has been gauging expert opinion in singapore. the exclusive hotel where the summit will be held has already been placed in a close security zone singapore will be the venue for high stakes diplomacy which may go on for several days but it's arguable the fact this historic meeting is even taking place is a victory in itself for kim jong un his country is sort of meeting with the u.s. president for many years and he's achieved that goal without making any concrete commitment on denuclearization i think kim is a much canny or operator than we give him a lot of credit for certainly in the united states and other circles i think that he has got exposure to the outside world you know through his education in switzerland and i think that he's got advisors who understand the outside world pretty well even if they prefer to live in their relative isolation inside of north korea and i think that he is doing a great job at playing the united states in the fact that we're seen as volatile
and risky right now in his interactions with the chinese and south korea those two countries a key to summit meetings now with south korea's president moon jay in the north korean leader has shown a different face to the world and smiling and prepared to negotiate and after reaching out diplomatically to the u.s. experts now believe it will be very hard to persuade north korea's main trading partner china to impose fresh sanctions if the summit is not a success i think it will be very difficult to return to the maximum pressure campaign of last year and early this year because north korea has indicated its willing to negotiate to work towards denuclearization he's reached out to beijing and seoul and sort of got them on his side and so i think it will be very hard to get china to cooperate at least on the economic portion of the maximum pressure campaign much of course the pens on what goes on around the negotiating table trump
prides himself on the art of the deal but kim is the one who intimately knows the secrets of his country and its nuclear program. the world will be watching the diplomacy here in singapore in the coming hours and days could determine the future of the korean peninsula james al-jazeera singapore yet another flow of molten modern ash from the forgo volcano in guatemala has forced emergency teams to abandon their search for survivors they've given up hope of finding anyone else alive last sunday's eruption killed at least one hundred people nearly two hundred are messing and thousands of homes are destroyed but in the sanchez reports from the disaster zone. this is one of more than one hundred think tim's of the old eruption. boiling a hash marks in fields were blown nearly two kilometers into the sky much of it one

international says ten activists have been arrested recently including at least seven women several pushed for the lifting of the ban on women drivers that's about to happen the first licenses have been issued state media's accuse the activists of being foreign agents here as iran is a researcher of human rights watch she says there's real concern for the safety of saudi female activists. the crackdown on women's rights activists and freedom of expression in saudi arabia has been widening both in scope and severity and it is honestly pretty perplexing given that the form you know the so their mentor it ground m.p.'s kind of the imam and some man is one of of the form and modernization and but so far what we've seen are limited social reforms when it comes to more people wanting to speak out to you know dare to dream about having a say in their own futures we're seeing that. the man is completely controlling the
narrative he alone gets credit for for these minimum forms he alone gets the site when he wants to give to these minimum forms to people or not but no one is able to speak out it appears as if it's you know a clear and clear calculated move to shut down all activism inside the country i mean how could this be you know this couldn't look like reform this modernization when you have you know women currently behind bars who have called for the same things that you know from one of the things that he's about to introduce the right to drive this month you know you've got families who are afraid to speak out about the plight of their of their sons and daughters in jail today you know because of fear of prison retaliation and other activists insights i mean it catches on and there it's you because they're afraid that they might the next two will people have been killed in antigovernment protests in nicaragua both young men died from

said cuts to its would supply would force it out of business the state government paid tens of millions of dollars to keep it going you can look at it as bailing after you can look at investing in a strong industry and a community that's had a rich heritage in supply in the till but timber that has built our towns. it's a heritage though that's been at the cost of forests and the creatures that rely on them in the two hundred years since european colonization most of southeastern australia as old as trees have been lost in victoria central highlands only about one percent of the mountain ash trees are more than a century old that matters because the oldest trees on the stumps of big dead ones developed hollow areas that animals like the now critically endangered leadbeater possums live in conservationists with night vision equipment look for them in areas about to be logged every sighting of the web as possible but we get there's
a two hundred made a protection buffer against logging all the oldest trees and big dead ones are supposed to be off limits to this is an example of what's called a dead hollow bearing tree that has been protected all the younger living trees that would have stood all around it have been felled but it's been left alone environmentalist though don't think anything like enough trees have been in this entire log area it's the only one that's been left standing there are completely burnt out stumps of similar trees nearby but researches say exclusion zones around individual animals and preserving just the very oldest trees does not go far enough they want large scale protection of middle age seventy or eighty year old trees too that is their next old growth forest i've got another fifty years before they start becoming a whole logically mature we need some of those trees to be very or

course and agree clearly what is their bonus for this what's present in the world cup already we agree on the money they're going to put up front but i'm sure money is now. does that qualify and won us for the work on that so many have been put aside officials say the players were paid two point eight million dollars for qualifying team officials say they want to avoid a repeat of what happened in a previous well crappy two thousand and fourteen when nigerian players refused to train the head of their match the promise prompt payment of allowances this time a promise that officials are feel to keep in the past. some players say with a signed agreement their pay worries are put aside for now. the focus is on the task at hand fighting their way out of a why they're considered the underdogs we like where we've been placed we don't want to be one of the favorites i think this will give the team a bit more motivation to prepare to try to prove that you know the critics the
prove people wrong that we can actually do much better i think we can do so. general the playing argentina. in iceland as a try to advance from the group stages many will be watching to see if indeed football of issues and players have learned lessons from twenty fourteen. i'll just point out that story and so much more can be found by going to our website and your mind of the address al-jazeera dot com. the top stories on al-jazeera north korean leader kim jong un has landed in singapore ahead of a summit with u.s. president donald trump he was greeted on arrival by singapore's foreign minister kim and tampa to meet their own choose day to discuss denuclearization plans hours ago trump left the g. seven summit in canada for singapore time called the talks of the north korean
leader a one time shot at peace the white house is hoping the summit will begin a process that eventually leads to an end to pyongyang's nuclear program. and trump is asked years officials not to endorse the joint communique on trade put out by g seven leaders in canada the us president changed his mind following comments by canada's prime minister at a news conference after the statement was agreed particularly did not take lightly the fact that it's based on a national security reason that. for canadians who either themselves or whose parents or community members have stood shoulder to shoulder with american soldiers in far off lands and conflicts. from the first world war on words. that it's kind of insulting i made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing but it is something that we absolutely will do
because canadians were polite were reasonable but we also will not be pushed around yet another flow of molten mud an ash has been spewing from the flag a volcano in guatemala that is under people died in last sunday's eruption with nearly two hundred missing emergency teams have given up hope of finding anyone else alive thousands of others have been left homeless too will be able to being killed in antigovernment protests in nicaragua both young men died from gunshot wounds rights groups accuse the government of using paramilitaries against the demonstrators protesters demand the resignation of president daniel ortega at least one hundred thirty seven people have been killed in violence since mid april but francis is called on oil company bosses to help the world convert to clean energy warning that crime of change could bring global destruction he urged them to create a long term energy strategy saying the issue is fundamental to solving the world's
procedure is a bad joke like cupping but there's more sophisticated insight into what our team is sad about your body american michael phelps relationship. it just might add that worldwide three hundred fifty million people are affected by genetic disorders closed by faulty d.n.a. these genetic defects can lead to a variety of conditions like cystic fibrosis which leads to conic and also cite a long sections and at the moment the system of cure i'm dr elizabeth healy in the u.k. to see how groundbreaking developments in gene therapy could one day transform the lives of people living with genetic disorders. that may help out on the left but not mary bond on a is sixteen years old and was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of one.
america tell me from your perspective what is your day like living with cystic fibrosis. erin when i asked her i guess op take my interview arises off eyes. and then you're sitting in my inbox tears. and i asked you i know you guys are failing. and they're nasty game i figured. i gave you a spiral a day and now i'm going to go out and just playing for help in the rain. and then after that ask to do another nebulizer. there are still more positives. and then yeah i will need space oh so you have zero now so learn. an hour a night. but mary was first diagnosed up to stuart she would only live until the
age before. i decided i was dazed and not ready until marriage or. unknown house to turn around i thought i'd like them on occasion the knob ok oh there's never a day goes by then talk to everybody forget the whole thing you know live it up so i know it's always there. married to use me to the children to see if i produces no mark on this of royce if i meet one of them there were no passage i want to me or on one passage i want to them so now it was a question isolating condition to hear yet because i was in a special one i was not a c.s. patient and they're all right. so i only used to send or letters to h.r. . because they couldn't meet face to face on the fly now last night at the moment mary is not really understanding everything about c.f. she she does now know that it is live show me that she does know that it cannot be
kids. but things could be about to change scientists have proven for the first time ever that an experimental technique called gene therapy can improve the health of those with cystic fibrosis i've come into central london to meet the doctors and the clinicians involved in the gene therapy trial and desisted fibrosis . resting back and. adding it. to stick fibrosis is as you know a genetically inherited disease parents who pass those copies on to their child and they have cystic fibrosis during the first year of life most babies will experience and lung problems and those relate to the buildup of sticky mucus within the airways and that sticky mucus attracts bacterial infections and the bacteria infections become chronic and they eventually cause quite significant lung scarring in the u.k. around ten thousand people with cystic fibrosis at the moment on
a registry about one in twenty two of us is a carrier of the mutated gene most of us won't realise and about one in two thousand babies are born with cystic fibrosis the genetic nature of this and other conditions mean that treatment has focused on managing the symptoms as best as possible but a new and experimental technique called gene therapy replace the faulty gene with a functioning one this is the largest and the longest duration gene therapy trial using a liquid formulation for cystic fibrosis that has ever happened in the one hundred sixteen patients completed the protocol and took at least nine be nice doses over the course of a year and it was in that group which was defined as being the group we were going to look at that we saw a significant impact on lung function at the end of the year. we can thank the patients and their families in the because without patients like mary and her mother we just couldn't have completed this trial so we're really grateful.
these results would not have been possible without the perseverance of scientists who spent years developing the genes and. we started this program and it's thought it would be very easy for patients to just impair the gene research and if it gets to the right area into the right cells in the lung it turned out that was much more difficult so how are you getting this healthy new gene into the areas and learn to do the job of the some teaching. for the try that is just finished but actually using a very simple minded cure it's a had it lifted but we did this we used the gene and we mixed it with this that this formed a small complex that complex it is then inhaled it into the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients the dose of gene therapy that the trial participants received does not terminate correct the faulty cystic fibrosis d.n.a. but scientists are working on finding a longer lasting solution clinical trial results have been very encouraging but
they're not quite good enough to turn them into a treatment yet so we have plans for and as a trial where we give more there to some gene complexes and more frequently basically in addition to that we have to developed a virus just very very efficient in getting chines into the lungs do you think you see a virus might be more efficient than using the fatty possibly using them and we certainly think so based on all the evidence we have the virus is at least a hundred fold more effective writing very scientific you know. these success stories represent a huge step forward for people my. matt did you notice any changes cheering the course of the treatment i thought i had no marriage or a i didn't need my elbow cherry mark a. were christian tradition was the best
so i prayed still going up let's get into a lot done. and how does that make you feel when you submit cheating asone in the main mission where you get to know i could dive dive could do that and i know i can do the hope is that one day gene therapy will be approved for use and widely available to those with cystic fibrosis older people that are studying and working to get this drug to work even better than it did was just hope and pray they can get it done and they can get the funding and if it doesn't come soon enough mary she's helped other faithful if it's not. the next generation of children born with cystic fibrosis in a city some are. going to do it again. i south korea how corning it speaks for seniors. because that really was the sermonize.
alymer back again. things can stay here. by the age of eighty five nearly half of us will suffer from oxygen damage to the name which can lead to chronic pain and disability bouts because cartilage unlike other tissues doesn't have its own blood supply so heals very slowly i'm dr dobson when i'm in hiroshima japan to meet the surgeon pioneering new techniques in regenerating on names. professor mit so old she. is one of the world's leading nice surgeons and a revered figure in the world of regenerative medicine. and you do it.
the professor to be here so please wait ok thank you. jay tech is an enterprise focusing on tissue engineering and has spent over ten years commercializing professor archies research. results in. a lot that's nice to see how you're very welcome things are paramount. in one thousand one thousand for my dance on paper was published by swedish group. the swedish team had developed a way of regenerating cottage in a lab and then re injecting it in liquid form directly into the knee however there was
a weak point all with their need. in order to solve this problem started to use very safe scale for the. yes you can imagine that. the foot would be here coming up yes if that. to thaw meniscus has no blood supply dissolve if injury is. a song we are the light to resect so what you can do with this regenerative medicine is to take the patient's own carthon sheets from the same joint yes all the change of confidence is a send a company i see it does she engineer the cuts. and that's why we're here yeah just half a gram of healthy cartilage is harvested it is then broken down with enzymes and implanted on a college in scaffold designed by professor ought to after just four weeks the
cells will have multiplied to form a four square centimeter disk. the surgeon then makes a template of the lesion and uses that to harvest some perry all still tissue from the shin bone. this will be the cover used to hold the new cottage in place so this is a model of someone's potentially regenerated cottage but the beauty of it being the patient's own cells here is that it's not rejected you know the medicine is on the viewpoint i mean in neurological reaction all told in a state issue is a topic. today this method has an almost ninety percent success rate and is considered a leading treatment fanie cartilage defects. what are the limitations of this can it be done better we need the largest. that is invasive. painful after surgery so less in this technique is
desired i have another new proceed you're using the magnetic. the goal is to devise a less invasive procedure much like their original idea of simply injecting the cartilage into the knee we inject so many serious. ten million. scottish in the knee joint you know lucy the injectors. can't. even jack cells blindly into the flu they go all over and that makes scarring so you'd rather just close to where there is actually enjoying the right pinpoint targeting so how did you achieve that so i decided to use small particles. didn't do that. didn't come or stimson your counterpart or side small i am part of the action stem
cells not that i am confident the is then that they can be controlled the dying the action with the strong man bent my lord that so many in the will magnetic force. from here there's the injection. attaches to the defect here the it is being channeled that way i can see very clearly by some sort of trick of nature these stem cells like to swallow are not seconds which is this whole procedure hinges on that because then you can manipulate. that solution of stem cells with a magnetic field. so not having to cut open the knee in any way you can attach those themselves to just the area where the cottage is broken down the defect area how do you make them stay there is there a magnet on the skin just ten minutes from the outside of the ski you're really
a minute then he physically they start to be here to the defective area it's amazing the bolotnaya this is a brand new. only here in. japan is aiming to be at the forefront of regenerative medicine and scientists are researching possible treatments for previously incurable diseases such as liver cirrhosis retinal generation and even outsiders but a crucial hurdle for many stem cell therapies is positioning the cells within the body this is led some to call professor archies magnetic breakthrough an important step forward in regenerative medicine in twenty fifteen this footage was shot by japanese television when professor archie performed the first ever magnetic cartilage restoration the patient was a semi professional tennis player and her cottage injury threatened to curtail her career. the procedure involved extracting some bone marrow to harvest stem cells
after cultivation a few stem cells were injected and the magnets came out for the first time. a year on his back for a checkup the. new . sport. in the what it is i don't. think. it's. just a company. i knew about i mean it's a bit like the bullet train. yeah . i code is ready for me which will reveal whether her wound has healed
following the magnetic knee regeneration procedure. first of all she's almost there scrubbing here we go is reading. this. the payout that yes this was a complete idiot. that's very much noticeably better yes yes what he first injected it but huge defect of redness and now it's all white it's covered in cottage now. it takes almost into who he is when i conceive this idea. and so i'm very. finished at the moment professor all cheese technique is only optical to relatively
young knee joints but he's already working on ways to adapt it for older patients suffering from also offline to come seventy years old i'd like to walk with my knee joint so he's changing course he did he's a very very desirable so i'd like to provide. you know he. china's easy parasitic illness that is found mainly in the poor rural regions of central and south america and it is estimated that in excess of ten million people are infected with the disease. and out to sea and i mean bolivia to me a woman who may just have found a solution to this devastating disease. disease is caused by the parasite.
which is carried by the triad to mean bug known locally as winter when an infected by someone leaves behind infected feces scratching the bite grabs the infected feces and. once in the body the parasites multiply and spread. the days of blasts approximately two months causing mild symptoms it then goes into remission and it can be decades later before the chronic stage begins where the parasite attacked the heart and it just of organs which can cause intestinal and cardiac disorders progressive destruction of the heart muscle can lead to heart failure and sudden death there is no vaccine. all are around when i was there. is an expert on the deadly vinci cure insect. that i meant they were.
lost but it is. me that at this time of day we work to get him to be that. we have does. not just. argue were meaningless but it's on us. that's. he's big they say she's. going to go through this so i just take. a lot so. me and. how many. things are in this house than. me and. you know i will not focusing on this is the meaning. one thousand. pain and suffering caused by infection as
a devastating impact on communities like the indictee of the two hundred fifty people that lived there are brum estimates that up to eighty percent of charges relate to. what has been the impact of childhood disease on your life and your families. do you have a chance disease you're so. thank. you. it's. been my theory. for the past fifteen years to people our military has been working into libya using an insecticidal paint to rid its effect to communities of the bin to cook insect tell me about this is the paint you have developed to combat charges. but it's more
sophisticated. in other words a new paint is an advance on previous insecticidal paints because the insecticides arm bedded in microcaps which slowly released over two to four years containing the insecticides like this means that the concentration of chemicals can be lower and that several. different pesticides which don't work if they are mixed together can be used. ok so do i have to dress up like that yes ok let's turn this there's nothing i'd like to do more than put an overall on in thirty five degree heat. this is going to look. for the. angst.
you want to try out love this for. sure will seem to be some of this was for those folks. and then just. ok. currently each home costs approximately two hundred us dollars to pay with the financial support coming from various organizations and private donors. in the last fifteen years p.r. and her team have treated six thousand homes in ninety three communities across the region which are home to twenty four thousand individuals incredibly the number of new cases of trans disease in these communities has dropped to almost zero. is because one inside yeah the more important is the. by do you know who this is
it already said this is the best they have to go back to the house now the. with the inside and outside painted the house will be clear of the insects within twenty four hours. following its success fighting tigers disease the pain is now being used to come back then he fever and malaria in communities and gone. to lives in one of the first villages the people are treated in bolivia. can you. describe to me what your house was line before the painting was done. but it seems they were working on a week or so with lots of interest in your house see the body among. those saw me and then check us free you actually have you know you asked me
a lot of thought i. the diagnosis he must be in sick for a long six months now the challenge ahead there with one of these ninety six could be a new cure for the basis of a new cure for colors all their illness or disability al-jazeera examines priam meaning treatments so this is the explosive yes it's basically a wearable robot that kira revisited on al-jazeera says. she. was a. fifty six sites she's it'll be a radio for the cost. of it.
sounds like. it's going selfless sale to the c.e.o. of. a kids'. territorial. social. and ethnic divisions. the daily reality piece in some of france's underprivileged communities. zero world hears firsthand account from suburban resident. the old. paris. a divided city. of. boston is everywhere and it's choking our planet very toxic and very dangerously we could spend years painting this i along with breakthroughs all being made showing that it is possible
to change our relationship with there's no night substance to simply running out i'm going to take a lot to get you to come on let me be proud of the wrong plastic waste of fries on al-jazeera how do you. and this. this is al jazeera. hello i'm adrian fatigue and this is the news i'll live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes kim jong un lands in singapore ahead of the historic summit with u.s. president donald trump. canadians are polite were reasonable but we also
will not be pushed around canada responds to attacks by the u.s. president often donald trump rejects the g seven summits concluding statement on twitter. another woman's rights activist is arrested in saudi arabia just two weeks before women are given the right to drive in the kingdom. but emergency workers say there's little hope of finding survivors in guatemala as the volcano continues to spew molten mud and ash. so the stage is now set the participants are beginning to arrive for tuesday's historic summit between donald trump and kim jong un in singapore just hours ago the north korean leader was greeted at chang airport by the singapore foreign minister vivian balakrishnan large crowds gathered along the route to kim's hotel people hoping to get a glimpse of him the u.s.
president is expected to touch down in singapore in around two hours from now shortly we'll get some reaction from florence louie who's in beijing but first let's cross to adrian brown who's in singapore adrian just set the scene for us ahead of this this historic summit. later in this time really a week ago this summit still seemed in doubt but just a few hours ago we got concrete evidence i guess that this summit is now finally on kim jong un the north korean leader becoming the first north korean leader ever to come to singapore and remember this young leader has only been to two other countries and that's happened in just the last few weeks south korea and of course china now he's in singapore for what is going to be a truly historic summit here arrived here adrian not on an airliner from north korea but one provided by china's government and air china seven four seven bringing in from pyongyang to singapore that flight passing most of the time
through chinese airspace that way the chinese were able to in a sense guarantee his security and it demonstrates really doesn't it that actually china does really still have influence with north korea and it also shows that act . china has played a significant role in ensuring that this summit does take place after all now after he landed kim jong un was met by single pause foreign minister who remember had been in pyongyang the north korean capital just a few days earlier before that he was in washington finalizing details and then the motorcade brought kim jong un from the airport into the city and what must he have thought as that motorcade came in it it stretched for twenty vehicles as he looked up and saw the modern skyline of singapore and perhaps wondered you know if the city state of singapore can achieve all of this then what is the potential for my country if we're able to do a deal here in singapore and in the complex negotiations that follow now any time
now the north korean meat leader is due to leave his hotel the st regis and to be taken to the stand where he'll meet the prime minister of singapore for a bilateral meeting president donald trump is to here in a few hours time air force one is due to to land sometime within the next two hours and president donald trump will then meet the singaporean leader some time on monday singapore actually has spent according to its prime minister some fifteen million u.s. dollars hosting the summit half of that has gone on security but he has said that you know that is a price worth paying and of course of singapore this is all powerful branding if this summit is a success then of course simak singapore will will bask very much in the limelight adrian and adrian what is it that north career is looking to get out of this summit . well i think kim jong un has has has two twin goals it's
security development and he's proved that by developing nuclear weapons and also economic development now we know a lot about the former but not very much about the latter and to break that down a bit i think he also wants to have you know security he has spent billions of dollars on his nuclear program and if he's going to give that up he wants some sort of guarantee that sanctions are going to be eased if not lifted and that investment foreign investment will follow and he wants respect he wants to be recognized as a military power certainly when he meets the u.s. president he will get you know prestige this will be him meeting the u.s. president remember you know this is something that his father and grandfather didn't achieve and those pictures will be shown in north korea so that'll give him an enormous amount of prestige and then you know he wants prosperity and what he's seen here i think will perhaps where his appetite adrian will speak to you again
a little later in the news hour for the moment many thanks adrian brown in singapore china may be on the sidelines of the summit but beijing's influence on pyongyang is obvious as adrian was saying there as we mentioned it was a chinese airline that carried him to singapore meanwhile china's president xi jinping has been hosting a meeting with central asian neighbors and russia's president vladimir putin out as is florence louis is following that story for us live from beijing what are we to make of this conference that's going on there in china's capital just as this summit is due to get under way between north korea and the u.s. president. well the shanghai cooperation organization or c.e.o. is a grouping that was founded by six members including brusha and china since expanded to include india and pakistan as well as as full members last year and that to a certain extent has added some degree of economic clout to the grouping india
being the world's fifth largest economy so this is a grouping that now represents forty percent of the world's population but only about twenty percent of the world's g.d.p. so not really a heavyweight when we're talking about economic terms but certainly no lightweight when it comes to the international arena simply because india and a big part of russia and china are members of this group and it would really many analysts see this as some sort of counterweight to the many groupings that are dominated by western countries now and should also alluded to that fact when in his remarks on sunday he said that american hedge many may exist but there were certainly growing calls for a more just and equitable international order and it's really no surprise as well that people who the leaders who've attended this summit enjoying that have also used this as an opportunity to challenge the existing world order we've heard iranian president hassan rouhani now his country is not a member state of the c.e.o.
but he does have observer status he used the meeting to attack the u.s. now he called the u.s. position unilateralism with reference to u.s. pulling out of the iran nuclear deal and he heaped praise on russia and china for their tests to try and salvage the deal so we're clearly seeing this group paying perhaps going forward gaining in importance and prominence on the world stage and we're certainly seeing a more. certainly seeing china being more willing to step up to the world stage and chip away at the dama. ns of the united states in the existing world order florence many thanks indeed for a story that lives in beijing back down to the trump kim summit in singapore say one clue is the managing editor of korea exposé which has a strong focus on north korea he joins us now live from seoul thanks for being with
us this summit anything more than a photo opportunity for president trump well i certainly don't think so considering how much time and energy really have gone into somebody if you will recall that this whole process really began back in january when kim jong un the leader of north korea said he would be interested in calming sending people to the council in peaks in south korea and since then we've really been on this rollercoaster ride that has many people's lives in the balance given the kind of tension that we have seen in the korean peninsula over the years and the kind of rhetoric we have also seen from washington what can be done to stop north korea and i think at this point it's difficult to say anybody's just doing this for a photo or people really want measurable accomplishments in diplomatic terms this is all happened very very quickly north korea going from pariah states to.
holding a summit with the that the so-called leader of the free world what do you make of the remarkable speed of it all. i think it really shows that every party has a vested interest in making sure that this is going to be a success i think donald trump is about riding on this given that he actually has very limited time before the midterm election happens and also for one two he's made an extraordinary show of his desire to move away from the pariah state to becoming a respected member of the international community and the same can be said about this south korean leader when zene he's really staked his legacy on making sure the denuclearization happens for now finally on the spin insula so i think that's really been the reason why we have seen this process moving as quickly as it had but given trump's twitter comments about prime minister trudeau of canada off of the g. seven meeting an ally and a neighbor who he called dishonest and weak why should should the leaders of the
the north or south korea trust anything that the trump system. that's true i think we have actually heard from north korea the sense of reservation is specially after cancelled the singapore summit back in back in may and north korea actually said through south korean president's mouth it is warry the u.s. might actually be willing to give it what he wants namely the security so it wants some kind of concrete there is no question about that but i think we need to also recognize the fact that it is really because we have an unconventional figure like donald trump in the white house that we might have been able to come this far this is the kind of sentiment that we're hearing here in south korea with the washington establishment very much opposed to the kind of peace process in progress right now
it needed some kind of unconventional figure to come forward and it ended up being donald trump in a way or it serves the americans want a deal if it if it does happen to turn out to be a damp squib it doesn't really go anywhere or is just the start of a long diplomatic process who has most to lose here the leader of north korea or south korea's president well i think if there cannot be the agreement in singapore it would reflect poorly on all the leaders that you have mentioned which is why i think we're going to see something very concrete coming out of this some eight people are wondering exactly what we would be discussed but ultimately this statement will need to mention very specific process by which north korea's going to the nuclear rights and at the same time a very concrete promise from the u.s. about the kind that we're surance you can give to north korea about its own security so all overall i think it's premature to talk about how the failure of the
