1:01 am
a decades long dispute greece says macedonia has finally agreed to a new name. and it's an image that the well force impossible just a few months ago u.s. president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un shaking hands and smiling but that's exactly what's happened in singapore the two leaders have met face to face and they've signed an agreement pledging to denuclearize the korean peninsula but the problem is the detail as simply as not adrian brown begins our coverage from singapore. no one was sure quite what to expect from the summit it is a very talented. very very low country where it was just the good news they seem to get on but as expected u.s.
1:02 am
president donald trump and the north korean leader kim jong un's signed a deal vague on details it says the united states and north korea will work towards denuclearization but missing the words verified and irreversible at a news conference trump was pressed on not saying he now trusts the north korean leader the does take a long time to you know pull off complete de nuclearization who takes a long time scientifically you have to wait certain periods of time and a lot of things happen but despite that once you start the process it means it's pretty much over good use of that's the good news and that's going to a very verses i believe it's going to start very soon we will do it as fast as it can mechanically and physically be done. and in the meantime sanctions will remain but trump said the regular exercises between the militaries of south korea and the u.s. would end but again no specifics or mention of
1:03 am
a peace treaty either act one in this diplomatic drama had begun almost five hours earlier with a handshake that may have changed the course of history. u.s. president donald trump said he'd know within a minute of meeting him if he'd get on with it so this was the moment he began sizing him up. the start perhaps of an improbable relationship in probable times. to nuclear armed leaders one of former real estate developer and reality t.v. star the other an international pariah and it's an honor. to. manage their speaking through an interpreter kim said the way here had not been easy for. the old practices and prejudices worked against this but we are here now. their day started at nine am local time in singapore prime time viewing in the united states
1:04 am
. the two leaders were joined by their officials if the two sides stick to what they've agreed here will be many more meetings in the garden all seemed amicable as the two leaders strolled in talk together and there was something trump was keen for kim to see the inside of his official limousine known as the beast both leaders will feel they've got something out of this summit gets the prestige of meeting the other kim gets to appear committed to denuclearize ation while trump may yet be credited as being the first u.s. president to bring peace to the korean peninsula the deal makes no mention either of north korea's harsh human rights history you know this is a fundamental freedom this is a principle of human existence and. for donald trump to say that kim jong un is now a nice guy when he's got one hundred twenty thousand people in gulags in the mountains is just not on
1:05 am
a few diplomatic encounters have been so eagerly anticipated the question now is whether all this will prove to be little more than just a series of photo opportunities a dream brown al jazeera singapore but the big surprise out of this summit was trump's announcement that the u.s. would be stopping its joint military drills with south korea this is a big concession from to make the north as long wanted them to end its shorter rattle america's allies south korea and japan atic all had reports. there was plenty of unprecedented things happening here but this was a pretty big one it's a very provocative. situation one when i see that and you have a country right next door. so under the circumstances that we are negotiating a very comprehensive complete deal i think it's inappropriate to be having war games those words have never been uttered by a u.s. president who in the past have probably massive drills with korea defensive and
1:06 am
military exercises war games provocation that is what the north koreans call this many in the pentagon and south korea were shocked at the concession and experts say that might have a real world impact and one thing that people have discussed before is a nuclear domino effect in the region where the south korean japan decide to develop their own nuclear weapons because they feel like they can't depend on the u.s. nuclear umbrella anymore the political reaction was largely split along the political divide even the most hawkish republicans holding back criticizing the president i don't think canceling a war a war game is going to matter over the arc of time but one thing that i would violently disagree with is removing our troops kim jong il is a butcher. and he's a butcher of his own people. and. trying to reason with someone like that is like trying to hand feed a shark. doesn't mean you can't do it but you get to do it very very carefully
1:07 am
democrats were less supportive i have to be honest with you this is the weakest statement i have ever seen come out of any engagement with north korea much less at the highest ranking of the president of the united states meeting with can just what the united states has gained is vague and on verifiable at best what north korea has gained however is an dribble and lasting it's not clear if this will change anything over the long term for the relationship but it will change with these military exercises are called in the future provocative wargames even the us president thinks so. al-jazeera washington. well keithley says the executive director of the national committee on north korea and on governmental organizations specializing in relations between the u.s. and the d.p. r. k. he said that the meeting could pave the way for a diplomatic process that brings real change in the relationship between the two
1:08 am
countries of the two leaders coming together talking the north koreans being willing to talk the united states etc. and so singapore was a good beginning good for singapore but for the understanding the agreement the relationship shall we say that was begun in singapore for all of this to endure there will need to be a plan in place to monitor the implementation who will be watching this who will make certain that each side does what it promised to do along the way so i believe this can be the beginning. of an enduring process but it's going to require a very careful and active monitoring mechanism. the british government has conceded that parliament will have some say in a deal to leave the european union speech seen as a defeat for hardbacks it has he want to leave the european customs union but he
1:09 am
doesn't resolve the lack of clarity of what bracks it will actually look like laurence leamer points and clarity he spoke about all about courage it's tortuously slow it is painful to watch so many times the british government has said it wants to do one thing over bricks it's only to be overturned and so again prime minister to resign may have not wanted parliament to have any say in what deal she negotiates with the european union but enough of her own m.p.'s threatened to rebel to force yet another climb down one minister even resigned so he could speak more freely. i urged my parliamentary colleagues to follow my lead and vote to give our greatest this house of commons our constituents and our country the powers it needs to leave our children a legacy of which we can be proud. so what to make of the government's continuing inability to make sense of brecht's it on behalf of people
1:10 am
in places like sunderland in northeastern england who voted for it see it runs a small business selling machine parts to begin destry he wants out of the european union completely and he can't understand why the government seems incapable of doing it's pretty stern no i want to push to stand up for england stand for the table. push around and. they just don't let the new do it didn't the thought and what is it you think i honestly don't know all the see all the right things and then when it comes to doing it. the foreign and the doing of it. and those businessmen who would back the conservative rebels like the boss of this factory just as frustrated they rely on an economic relationship with the european union and yet the government can give them no assurances that that will carry on i'm a strong supporter of the u.k. in general however i think the only norm is the thing that we're frightened of most
1:11 am
and i don't think the government's doing the best it could to give us the information and communication on the next steps in what's likely to happen on an exit from the entire economy of some zealand relies on the giants nisson and its feeder companies a failed brecht's it could easily lead to this factory relocating to continental europe yet neither nissen nor anyone else knows what shape bricks it will take and back in london all is discord perhaps the best indication of the divide in society over what's happening in parliament moments is on the front page of some of the newspapers in the brics it supporting press the conservative rebels who want parliament to be given the final say on the votes or describes as betrayers and traces and yes in those newspapers which supports them they described as heroes it's hard to escape the conclusion that this continues to be a country politically speaking at war with itself lawrence lee al-jazeera the

denuclearization trump told a news conference the u.s. will end its military drills with south korea but seoul seemed surprised by this releasing a statement saying it needs to find out the precise meaning of trump's announcement . and the u.k. government has been forced to make concessions to see off a potentially damaging rebellion over whether parliament will get a meaningful vote on the final breck's it deal. when other stories we're following the french president emanuel has called italy cynical and irresponsible for refusing to allow a ship carrying six hundred twenty nine refugees to dock the refugees were rescued from the sea off libya at the weekend but they found themselves stranded when both italy and malta refused to give their rescue boat permission to dock it's now it's an on its way to spain where the government has offered to take them and al-jazeera has joined a whole reports from rome. for four days they've been aboard the m.s. aquarius relief at being rescued short lived now uncomfortable in the searing
1:17 am
mediterranean heat and yet for this very place right here. the rescue ship denied port access in italy overcrowded and with supplies running low has been directed to volunteer in spain two italian naval vessels will take on four hundred of the six hundred twenty nine migrants and refugees that's what the italian government now sees as the extent of its cooperation with n.g.o.s rescues are seen . for far right leader and new interior minister. it is an election promise made good italy has said it will no longer europe's refugee camp because he . was unhappy to be able to give the italian people the first piece of what they asked for. is italy's new strongman leading the charge with his anti establishment coalition partners the five star movement and basking in high approval ratings for it what is astonishing and is this part mean just populists this poll this is also
1:18 am
very popular in italy there isn't a tremendous amount of people in this data saying yes we have to close the borders yes we have to control the access of the immigrants yes we have to send them back on the timing isn't coincidental there's an e.u. meeting at the end of june that will consider changing the rule that asylum must be claimed in the country of first entry it's that rule that is put italy on the front line of europe's migration crisis. italy's treatment of those aboard the aquarius is notice to. me so changing each state has the right to manage his boundaries. but this should not put into doubt the. human rights our deepest concern is that if the rescue capacity will be weakened by different
1:19 am
policies by different arrangements this risk this journey might become even more risky. men women and children will continue to make the crossing into north africa to southern europe at the hands of unscrupulous people smugglers they probably won't be told but it just got a much harder and more dangerous journey home broke. at least two refugees have died in major downpours in southern bangladesh where nearly a million rangar are living in camps and monsoon rains have triggered landslides which have damaged and destroyed some of their settlements government says it's moving fast to relocate tens of thousands of people international aid agencies say there is a big risk of an outbreak of waterborne diseases. this is an early test for refugees and humanitarian agencies working to support the government of bangladesh and the response efforts to wrenshaw rains and winds up to seventy kilometers per hour

1:21 am
alexis tsipras is the fruit of six months of negotiation that ends a twenty seven year standoff between the countries both men heralded the deal as a new era for the whole of south eastern europe renamed savannah macedonia the republic of northern macedonia greece's neighbor takes a step closer to e.u. and nato membership see for me a look at the league summit. in the agreement that we reached and all the neighbors have nothing to do with the ancient greek civilization of macedonia and cannot claim any commission to it in the future. somebody asked. i call on all citizens to seize the future twenty five years of being stuck is enough many generations have been lost macedonia must go forward and be equal with the west to compete with them and to have the same quality of life. the heart of the dispute is a question of identity slav macedonians have lain claim to ancient macedonian
1:22 am
heritage since world war two the greeks see that as a vital component of their own sense of nationhood and cultural heritage so the agreement makes it clear that savannah macedonia is a slow of nation and also forgotten tribe of the ancient greeks the macedonian language will be described as slavic and passports will state nationality as macedonian from savannah macedonia both governments say they defended their red lines but the hard work now begins of convincing the peoples to accept the compromises greece will no longer hold a monopoly on the word macedonia and greece's northern neighbors cannot claim to be the descendants of alexander if all goes according to plan greece will recommend that the european union open accession talks with savella macedonia at a meeting of foreign ministers in two weeks time it will do the same at a nato summit next month the pressure will then be on the government to approve the agreement in a referendum and toss constitutional amendments in parliament i. would then ratify
1:23 am
the agreement by the end of the year and savannah macedonia could theoretically hope to join the e.u. and nato next year. africans. or fans of video games will be paying close attention to what happens in los angeles for the next few days all the top games companies are showing off any products at the electronic entertainment expo or a three for short while very and rob reynolds is also there taking it all and rob. plenty going on there behind you tell me. tell me about the popular games this year . number one popular game area is fortnight and that's where we are right now in this elaborate set that the company has set up and this gentleman here is playing fortnight so you get a sense of what all the fuss is all about if you're a parent probably somebody in your house is playing fortnight after school or when

they should be doing their homework or maybe you're playing yourself but it is become a huge popular game it is called the battle royale game which means there are up to one hundred players who can be on teams or they can be individual players fighting want to install and the last team or the last person standing wins so this is a more or less light hearted shooter sort of game it's not quite as heavy on the blood and guts and gore as many other games are i saw one for example that is part of the assassin's creed franchise which is very popular this one set in homeric times forget about the poetry though assassin's creed odyssey is all about blood and sword play but there are some other creative games here the take a different tack for example there is a game called bury me darling which is
1:25 am
a buyout a syrian refugee texting his wife as he makes his way from syria crossed turkey and into europe trying to seek safety another game called sea of solitude which he's very pertinent right now since we've had so many high profile unfortunate people people taking their lives it's about depression and it's about where the gamer can control the avatar of a young woman who when she begins to feel depressed and bad about herself or her appearance changes into that of a monster sort of mirroring the. feelings of people get that they're bad or on worthy or or at least i'm leading to work sometimes terrible out of so there are so many games or so many developers hard to imagine really for a person of my generation but already the game industry for years now as outpaced both recorded music and the cinema industry in terms of its revenue is one of the
