10:04 am
late term abortion. thank you thank you an example of issues that democrats contend are seized upon by the president with the intent of division this appoint brought up in the opposition response given by the democratic party's rising star stacee a browns the shutdown was a stunt engineered by the president of the united states one that defied every tenet of fairness and abandoned not just our people but our values the one moment of real unity came when president trump left his prepared script. we also have more women serving in congress then any time. republicans and democrats alike burst into applause but the vast majority of women are on the democratic side in terms of gender and race it's the most diverse
10:05 am
democratic party caucus in congress tional history and despite a rib bipartisan moment it would appear this side of the house were main intent on fighting the president every step of the way. i can i'll just sarah washington. well six months after the historic meeting between presidents trump and the north korean leader kim jong un the two leaders will meet again during that state of the union address mr trump announced the summit will take place in vietnam on the twenty seventh and the twenty eighth of this month the u.s. president has been seeking a second meeting to firm up pyongyang's commitment to denuclearize asian they first met last june in singapore to much fanfare but the meeting was criticized by some for a lack of concrete agreements right mcbride joins us live from seoul i guess that's the key thing here rob they've got to put some meat on the bones here of how their relationship evolves and moves forward. absolutely peter there is a lot of pressure on the negotiators to come up with something more substantial
10:06 am
more concrete as we know and as you mentioned the singapore agreement was criticised for frankly its flimsiness there was very little there except for a broad commitment to denuclearize ation and i think really in the next summit if it is going to be of any value would really have to see some of the steps that are going to get this close to that the presidential office here though in seoul has welcomed this upcoming summit and the confirmation of it saying that it hit will hopefully take substantial and concrete steps towards denuclearization as we speak stephen begon he is the special envoy from the u.s. on north korean affairs he is in pyongyang at the moment in theory meeting with his counterparts to hammer out some of the details of this there's a lot of speculation about what might be agreed upon and what the two sides can agree on to move this forward but the fact that he is meeting there that this
10:07 am
meeting was taking place even before trump announced and confirmed this summit was taking place is seen as a good sign it be that the announcement of the summit is not dependent on his talks it seems as though there may already have locked in place what they will be signing when they meet on the twenty seventh and twenty eighth of february in viet nam peter what are the particular areas rob over which they can actually make serious progress. they have already mentioned in previous talks about some of the concessions they can make north korea has spoken about possibly winding down some of its nuclear processing facilities as also talked about maybe dismantling some of its rocket testing facilities in return the united states has possibly mentioned about signing a formal declaration an end to hostilities that would give the north koreans the
10:08 am
kind of guarantees that they would want about their safeguarding their future from any further attacks what they really want of course is some relief from sanctions now even as early as or later as last week began was saying that the u.s. position remains the same that they're not prepared to release sanctions give some . stopping the pressure of sanctions unless they get a signs of denuclearization from north korea that we simply haven't seen yet that still seems to be the case but there is a possibility that they could give exemptions to the likes of south korea or at least to enter into joint economic projects with north korea which we fecht of lee would be a roundabout way of trying to get ease some of the pressure on sanctions so there are some ways of moving this forward basically peter because there has been so little movement and they have seemed at times that this whole process has stalled during the past six months even the smallest of agreements will be seen as
10:09 am
a big success at the end of this month in vietnam peter will the optics of this next meeting be pretty much the same as the first meeting in singapore you know the chinese will be looking in intensely of course but they may not have high profile representation the south koreans will be there as well front and center. well there is speculation the presidency may make an appearance yet although that's yet to be confirmed when it comes to the optics of viet nam of course it's symbolically very significant this was a former photo of the united states that now has normalized relations it has a booming economy and yet it still has a communist party that is very much in control following if you like the state run capitalist model of china this is really a way of showing to the north koreans if he wants to get on board if it wants to develop its economy then this is the way it could possibly do that but if it's going to do that it needs sanctions to be lifted and the american position is if
10:10 am
you want sanctions lifted you've got to denuclearize peter rob thanks very much. pleas for the venezuelan government to let aid into the country have so far fallen on deaf ears opposition politicians while they're in colombia today preparing for the transfer of aid and supplies from the united states trucks were sent off to a request for help by the self declared interim president. has more now from caracas. employee said this maternity hospital in the capital caracas say they are in desperate need of aid they say their hospital urgently needs basic medicines and medical equipment they say the venezuelan government shouldn't get in the way of international aid entering the country. only. this hospital had the best doctors the business is the best of everything and now we are seeing a complete deterioration with shortages of medicine food for patients and cleaning products the self declared interim president why though says the president. is
