in escalating the conflict any further. which is why they say jaish of the home they blame appear to be behind the. suicide attack which triggered this latest escalation however we're now hearing that the indian air forces did try and mount a second strike and that's where those two aircraft are going down this is incredibly serious a lot of people in the offices around the foreign office of. the army headquarters which is just down the road there will be taking a look at what to do next now that they say they have allegedly this pilot in today it really depends on what the army say next that we are expecting a press conference from them some point right that city then from the pakistan capital islamabad and our correspondent on let's go over now to the indian capital new delhi and speak to our correspondent there says jamil says so we understand

then that the pakistani military have been on a heightened state of alert now for several days what is the situation in india with all of these claims and as i say counter claims of these alleged aggressions if you like along the line of control. martina's you said there's been claims and counterclaims but indian officials are being very tight lipped it's a very different narrative on this side what al-jazeera has been able to confirm a few minutes ago is that locals though are in the rejoice and sectors of india that mr bush near have told analogise here at that they saw bombs fall from an aircraft but there's been no official confirmation locals also said another i'd unidentified aircraft has crashed in the area again indian officials are not confirming it this is coming from locals on the ground we can't confirm though that there was separately an aircraft crash outside of the capital srinagar we can't
12:39 pm
confirm what type of aircraft it is though indian media had been reporting it first that it was a jet fighter but people on the ground are saying it looks more like a helicopter and two charred bodies have been found inside that what we can confirm from the indian side what they have said officially is that air space throughout indeed and mr kashmir has been shut down flights are not being allowed in or out as well as any other plights on the way have been diverted now as imran told us you know there's a lot of stories claims counterclaims going along and that india had been trying to deescalate the situation but it seems that hasn't happened the situation has definitely escalated all right fred jamil live from the indian capital new delhi thank you write to other news now the nigerian president has won a second four year term the election commission says he won more than fifteen million votes in saturday's delayed election hot the main opposition p.d.p.

12:42 pm
now from our correspondent a german brown. u.s. president donald trump is used to the line vietnam's leaders less so. but trump summit with north korea's leader kim jong il has changed all that before his first meeting with kim on wednesday he met the host of this summit the country's prime minister and president on behalf of the united states i want to thank you very much for hosting and hopefully great things will happen later on with our meeting like north korea vietnam was once an enemy of the united states yet in spite of the history the relationship is now good with vietnam regarded as a strategic partner of the u.s. in asia. but it's trump's relationship with kim that's now the priority the hanoi summit to build on a historic meeting in singapore in june where they made of a commitment to rid the korean peninsula of some of the most powerful weapons
12:43 pm
created this time they need to agree a framework for how that'll happen vietnam was an acceptable choice to kim for this summit it's one of the few countries with the north korean embassy which came visited on tuesday night. and like china vietnam's achieve strong economic growth while preserving one party rule thriving like few places on earth according to trump also tweeted that north korea's potential was also also there is both curiosity and excitement about the two leaders this city is now playing host to and i hope that a city once synonymous with war could perhaps become a symbol of something else i feel very happy because world leaders are coming to vietnam to talk about peace to see each other and to shake hands call i think this is a good opportunity for hanoi and it can help us in many ways i'm proud because i was born here and i think the fact that donald trump and khinjan are in hanoi shows
12:44 pm
it's a safe city i think it will change the way the world thinks about theater. at this temple worshipers burn incense which they consider to be a link between humans and heaven and now this city itself may become a bridge between two men who've in the past threatened nuclear war. adrian brown al jazeera hanoi all right let's go live now to another of our correspondents who is there in the vietnamese capital way hey and wayne what do we think donald trump specifically wants to achieve from this last time we remember there was a lot of talk about civic jury member complete verifiable irreversible denuclearization is that still on the table is that still the goal. well i think slowly but steadily over the past few months since that summit really in june of last year in singapore the first time that these two leaders had met
12:45 pm
there's been a steady rolling back of the expectations when it comes to verifiable denuclearization the big question being will the north koreans denuclearize completely how do the americans verify that and will the u.s. and its allies south korea japan and the rest be willing to reward the north korean government the north korean regime along the path of denuclearization or will the u.s. stick to its initial goal by saying that we will only reward them in terms of sanctions relief when denuclearization is complete and then the big question becomes how do you verify that they want to get independence inspectors independent monitors into north korea to verify that what the north koreans are saying they have done they have actually done you remember last year also we saw the destruction of the nuclear test site they invited some media organizations from outside north korea in
12:46 pm
there to witness these very spectacular explosions in the mountains in north korea but we haven't been able to verify whether or not that nuclear test facility has in fact been disabled so going forward i think that's going to be a very important subject between donald trump and kim jong un verifying what exactly they have done and are willing to do in the future wayne hey live in the vietnamese capital hanoi thank you. still to come at al-jazeera the syrian highway that's becoming the focus of president assad's forces in the last a rebel stronghold plus. am was. one of the world's youngest orchestras marks its first decade on stage. and.
