6:03 am
summit with kim jong un a date and a time to be decided but what we saw today with a few sublists about the diplomatic process will be in contrast what we see we expect tomorrow on tuesday when he addresses the u.n. general assembly he is likely just point to how progress can be made under his leadership pointing to the careers but we expect him to be very tough on iran we're also expecting him to to be emphasizing the theme of sovereignty that is national sovereignty over the sovereignty over global sovereignty over institutions like the united nations so that should be very interesting and then we'll see the president of iran speak as well the un general assembly so that should be a probably what will be focusing on tuesday and wednesday as james said we see that u.n. security council meeting where strong trouble in italy wanted to be solely about iran against that now it's about proliferation but we can see some tough words there as well but the year definitely has to come trust and you wonder whether there is this kind of thesis that say look we can do a deal on korea perhaps one is is open to be done on iran we're open to talks but
