3:01 am
a decades old dispute. a warming us north korea relationship has taken another unexpected turn kim jong un and donald trump have apparently accepted invitations to visit each other's countries that's according to a report from the north korean state news agency the long time adversaries met for the first time in singapore on tuesday there's no timeline for the visits simply that they would happen at a convenient time when he is live for us in seoul with more on this so wayne there seems to be a few differences though in what the two sides are saying that they agree to here. yes certainly a very lengthy article a very lengthy summary released by the korean central news agency on the day after that that summit took place between donald trump and kim jong un and yes there are
3:02 am
some fairly interesting differences some of which you probably can put down to translation differences but one of the top lines coming out of this statement is that the u.s. president shared their view that step by step and similar actions are important to achieve peace and denuclearization so clearly that is a reference to the north koreans beginning the process of starting to dismantle its nuclear weapons program and systems in exchange for more concessions from the united states maybe in the form of sanctions relief although it doesn't go that far but that is certainly not been the position of the united states before the summit their position was that they needed to see a complete dismantlement of the united of the north korean nuclear weapons program it needed to be verifiable of course that was something that the u.s. had stressed many times so clearly that is something different that we're seeing
3:03 am
now from pyongyang and also has them related to the quite surprising statement from donald trump in that media conference after the summer when he said that he was ending joint military exercises between the united states and south korea because they were provocative he said and also very expensive for the u.s. well the north koreans are saying something slightly different they are saying that donald trump agreed to suspend those military exercises while dialogue takes place between pyongyang and washington so that is something slightly different donald trump clearly according to that media conference has taken things a big step further by saying that those joint millett military exercises will be ended. and wayne how is the sat a south korea reacted to trump's an announcement that they would end those military exercises were clearly they were taken by surprise immediately after that media conference we understand there was
3:04 am
a phone call from donald trump to the south korean president perhaps to explain to him what had happened during the previous few hours during that summer during the meeting with the north korean leader but maybe to explain what he meant by the decision by donald trump to end those joint military exercises there were statements are after that that came out from other government departments here in south korea saying that they needed to interpret the words from donald trump interpret the meaning of them before they could make a definitive statement about what it means going forward and similarly there was a statement released by the us military forces based in south korea presumably that had also come from head office from the pentagon in the united states as saying that they had received no word no order regarding the suspension all the halting of joint military exercises with south korea when
3:05 am
a life for us there in salt thanks wayne now was billed as an historic summit but beyond the handshakes and smiles the question is now who came out on top adrian brown reports. no one was sure quite what to expect from this summit releasing very talented. they let this go very well with just the good news they seem to get on well but as expected u.s. 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 that saying he now trusts the north korean leader it does take a long time to you know pull off a complete de nuclearization you takes a long time scientifically you have to wait certain periods of time and
3:06 am
a lot of things happen but despite that once you start the process it means it's pretty much over can't use them that's the good news and that's going to start very very soon i believe it's going to start very soon we will do it as fast as it can mechanically and physically be done in the meantime sanctions will remain but trump said the regular exercises between the military's of south korea and the u.s. would end but again no specifics or mention of a peace treaty either act one in this diplomatic drama that began 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 whom
3:07 am
a real estate developer and reality t.v. star the other an international pariah and why aren't. you all that. bad there speaking through an. interpreter kim said the way here had not been easy but. 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. the two leaders were joined by their official 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 each gets the prestige of meeting the other kim gets to appear committed to denuclearize ation
3:08 am
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 you know 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 a few diplomatic encounters have been so eagerly anticipated the question now is whether all this will prove to be a little more than just a series of photo opportunities a dream brown al-jazeera singapore a u.s. federal judge has approved the merger two of the world's biggest media companies the ruling an ass communications giant eight hundred eighty to take over time warner in an eighty five billion dollars deal the judge said the government had failed to approve the deal would harm competition or adversely affect consumers
3:09 am
john hendren has more now from washington. a u.s. judges ruled that. time warner can merge despite the objections of the u.s. department of justice that is an eighty five billion dollar merger one of the largest in recent history it is rare that the department of justice opposes a merger on antitrust grounds and rarer still that they lose a case like that this is a case in which president donald trump made his opinion clear he said this merger will not go through in my administration he particularly objected to the fact that time warner owns c.n.n. and there was even talk that c.n.n. would have to be spun off an order for the merger to go through this was the vertical integration of two companies in other words they didn't do the same thing one of them distributed content the other one provided that content and the d.o.j. is more likely to disapprove when two companies do the same thing but this was
3:10 am
a response to amazon and netflix who were content distributors who then became content providers and in time warner said they had to do this in order to compete the judge agreed and the federal government can now appeal that decision but the judge said you should not ask for us to block the merger until that happens that's because it would do undue harm to those companies if this doesn't happen by june twenty first then either side can walk away under the agreement and he would have to pay a five hundred million dollars fine. other british government has conceded the parliament will have some say in the final deal to leave the european union this is seen as a defeat for hard line breaks it tears who also want to leave the e.u. customs union but it doesn't resolve the lack of clarity over what regs it will actually look like largely reports. he spoke about courage it's tortuously slow
3:11 am
and it's 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 situation this house of commons our constituents and our country the powers it needs to leave our children a legacy of which we can all be proud to crack so what to make of the government's continuing inability to make sense of brecht's it on behalf of people 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
3:12 am
union completely and he can't understand why the government seems incapable of doing its pretty stern no or push to stand up for england stand up for the table. push around and they just don't do a lot. the new. design the frightened letters it is ink. all the see all the right things and then when it comes to doing it. the work. of 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 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 on its
3:13 am
feet the company is a failed brecht's it could easily lead to this factory relocating to thomson until europe get 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 the moment 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 a 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 largely al-jazeera the westminster all right we're going to take a break now but when we come back on al-jazeera. we feel bad because the government is not giving us any answers about our future survivors of guatemala volcanic

3:18 am
iran's influence in iraq but the two groups still don't have the majority to form a government. the u.n. envoy to yemen is negotiating with major warring sides to prevent fighting in the main port city for a delivery's forces led by saudi arabia and the united arab emirates are ten kilometers from the day that which is held by her the rebels u.a.e. gave the hoodies until tuesday to withdraw before a military assault with a day has been a vital lifeline for millions of yemeni suffering from food and medical shortages a french president emanuel has called italy cynical and irresponsible for refusing to allow a ship carrying six hundred twenty nine refugees to dock the ship will now head to spain which has offered to take them in 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 the journey to the spanish
3:19 am
port of the lengthier world now take three to four days the ship will be accompanied by two italian coast guard boats john now reports from rome. for four days they've been aboard the immerse aquarius relief at being rescued short lived now uncomfortable in the searing mediterranean heat and the air really for this very place. the rescue ship denied access in italy overcrowded and with supplies running low has been directed to violence here 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 me good italy has said will no longer europe's refugee camp. i'm happy to be able to give the italian people the first
3:20 am
piece of what they asked for. salvini 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 in this despite being judged as populists this poll this is also very popular in italy there isn't a tremendous amount of people in this state are saying yes we have to close the borders yes we have to control the access of immigrants yes we have to send them back home the timing isn't coincidental there's an 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 the rules that see so changing each state has the right to manage his
3:21 am
boundaries. but these should not put into doubt the. human rights our deepest concern is that if the rescue will be weakened by different policies by different arrangements this risk this journey might become even more risky. men women and children will continue to make the crossing to north africa to southern europe at the hands of unscrupulous people smugglers they probably won't be told but it just got much harder and more dangerous journey how al-jazeera wrote . more than four thousand people remain homeless in guatemala after last week's eruption of mt for a go most of the victims are living in temporary shelters the government says it will provide housing but there may be

3:26 am
and nato membership see for me up at the league summit yet any agreement that we reached and all the neighbors have nothing to do with the ancient greeks given a zation of macedonia and cannot claim any connection is to eat in the future. somewhere you ask will folks 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 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 slug nation not a 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've defended their red lines but the hard work now begins at convincing their 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 the response then ratify the agreement by the end of the year and savannah macedonia could theoretically hope to join the e.u. and nato next year jump start off a loss al-jazeera africans are the football world cup begins on thursday and hosts russia go into the tournament as the lowest ranked of the thirty two teams they
