2:04 pm
there was a lot of confusion throughout the day so actually this is really really if this is going to happen it's clearly about to happen what will this mean for possibly tamping down some of the tension. the release of. india funding to back into into india and so it would be a great release the country i mean just a quick shot of all the national papers for the day i mean you know coming home india will look at the sentiment really of the mode. to be free today. prime minister of course and that and the hindu the pakistan will release. today those it's on the front pages of all of the national press and indeed everybody's waiting with bated breath to whether they will get a glimpse of him we do know that the indian air force personnel who will be looking
2:05 pm
after him have arrived at the atari world cup border being a score to buy the border security force and they will literally be there waiting to take control of the handover of the pilots now and ambulance trip just a short time ago we don't really know what the condition of the pilot is but certainly there's a great fervor at the border that he will be coming home the press were further away from the border crossing that normally it's a very ceremonial opening and closing of the day that's been canceled because of the scenario that india is facing nothing that actually comes back but the tension has not gone away here in india and others as those newspapers have said the prime minister has said that even though they're getting back their man they're not letting pakistan off the hook there is a continued curfew in indian administered kashmir there was shelling overnight one woman was killed in the porch area she was buried on friday india continues to and
2:06 pm
will continue according to the foreign ministry maintain the pressure on islamabad to get rid of these radical groups that they allege operating on the study against india and when we've had any discussions about this obviously there out throughout the day there are some that say that the renter modi's crackdown may actually exacerbate the situation may or may not really help what do you hear about things like that. i'm sorry i couldn't hear that could you just repeat. of course of course is that we've been discussing this this issue obviously throughout the day in different perspectives and and we had a former lawmaker on earlier who said that he thought that. crackdown was actually part of may exacerbate the situation as opposed to help.
2:07 pm
i'm not quite sure that it will exacerbate the situation but it's what some of the from the political spectrum of what's going on in here in india i mean we are just weeks away from a national general election being called up to this incident on february the fourteenth the renter modi was coming under a lot of pressure a lot of criticism over his policies and inaction over the last five years people are very frustrated on the whole with his performance and his government's performance his role now and his performance in reacting to pakistan after that suicide bombing that killed over forty indian paramilitaries has you might say lifted not only his spirits but his hit his position in the eyes of the indian public they are waiting to see how he deals with a strong arm with a strong hand how if you want to describe it against pakistan what has been very evident is the way that the politicians here in india certainly the b.g.p. ruling government have managed to get their story across to the international
2:08 pm
community their p.r. machine has swung into motion in a very positive light as far as critics here are concerned people are listening to india about the way they are treated by terror groups alleged terror groups infiltrating from pakistan that was in fact highlighted by the indian foreign minister who's currently in abu dhabi at the organization of islamic conference an annual conference of over fifty mainly looking slim majority of nations who will have been very interested in what the foreign minister had to say surprisingly the pakistani delegation in government decided not to attend some might think they've shot themselves in the foot by not standing up to india on an in a forum like that it gives certainly. the foreign minister a chance to explain india's position and even present the facts that she. the it's
2:09 pm
a great opportunity for india to explain themselves the past and pops the last opportunity for pakistan but certainly this is all leading up to the general election and inevitably what happened in poor on february the fourteenth and since then up to the return of this indian pilot which we expect in the next two to three hours will all play as a major factor in how the politicians react to domestic and international policy when it comes to the general election people in this country want to be safe and they want the government to keep them safe so you're ok you're talking about people because you're right that we've been talking about this back and forth between governments but the reality is people on the ground other one now have to live are the consequences of their actions what have people's lives been like during this escalation sense feb fourteenth. i think there are two different scenarios for anyone here you are there will be the kashmiris who are in indian administered kashmir they
2:10 pm
largely are muslim groups that also hindus there and maybe some christians too they have a very different life experience to the rest of india. if you ask indians in the south of the country about what they feel about kashmir or the pakistan india border areas they would have very different opinion to those actually live on the border security has always been an issue in this country just doesn't really matter with your the west of the country or the east of the country. towards bangladesh security has always been an issue and we've seen attacks on indian soil whether it be the attacks of two thousand and eight we've seen attacks and at of our in delhi courts in our highways that now this is yet another attack in the world or kashmiris up in the in the indian administered areas would say as they have been demonstrating on the streets in the several weeks leading up to this event that they too have been punished for wanting to talk to the government about their
2:11 pm
rights and the obligations of the government towards than most indian nationals or even have some sort of autonomy in an area that's been disputed both by india and pakistan both countries claiming it in their entirety after independence in one nine hundred forty seven it is such an into line issue that and in twined some might think intractable conversation that neither islam about a new delhi could find a way at this present moment in time i doubt very much they're going to find time to talk to each other when this general election is pending whoever does take that seat by the thirty first of may may have a change of heart here in india may have to try and find a way to talk to pakistan and vice versa but only time will tell. for the moment people are on tenterhooks one hundred how after the pilot arrives back here in india how india is then going to you might say play the political game with
2:12 pm
pakistan and try to perhaps if they can resolve the outstanding issues ok so how raman stand by close i'm sure will be coming back to you and just to remind people what it is we're watching this is a lot of atari border where they are and the and highlights who was captured pakistan is allowing him to feel like that clearly from the pictures that seems to be imminent we don't actually know anything about his medical condition but as we keep an eye let's let's kind of move the story forward a little a bit amid all of the fighting it's the kashmiris living on both sides of that disputed border who are suffering the most with that so let's take a look at the support from enron caught. by car on foot the residents of leave in haste this village on the disputed border area of kashmir known as the line of control is typical of many in the area. shelling from both sides is not uncommon but in recent days it's increased to levels not seen in two decades and
2:13 pm
people taking any chances. over there more days after us. here the government doesn't do anything we have to come be insulted we're not wandering there's no point in living from the village along some three hundred families have fled in surrounding villages artillery shells have damaged houses in this village the women and children have left but the men have stayed behind to defend. we stand with the army we stand here just a kilometer away from the border we won't leave our forces behind there are also similar scenes happening in indian administered kashmir just post that military checkpoint law is the line of control the affected border between pakistan and indian administered kashmir and it's not just on this side of the border that kashmir is all scared people are also fleeing from all over the. shows from the
2:14 pm
pakistani side has increased in recent days and. three hundred. may god protect everyone as well as hindus and six be the two powers to consent so that peace freezes in the region and believe in. those prayers may well be in vain for now both pakistan and india are pushing each other diplomatically and militarily and so far neither shows any signs of backing down in the disputed region of kashmir is the people that are feeling the pain and once again they feel they're being used as pawns between the two nuclear powers. or does it. there have been campaigning narratives over why the nuclearization talks broke down between the u.s. president and the north korean leader and vietnam says the u.s. had to walk away over demands that left all sanctions on and that has been
2:15 pm
reiterated by u.s. secretary of state my palm. i think the president had it exactly right he said they basically asked for for sanctions relief that's true they basically did ask for that. that was in exchange for. some relatively undefined but the scope of the president didn't think was adequate to justify that level of economic sanctions relief but north korea's foreign minister says the country only asked for partial sanctions relief isn't his in the u.s. and wasting an opportunity to strike a nuclear deal. you into the united states removes partial sanctions namely removes the articles of sanctions that hamper the civilian economy and the livelihood of our people in particular we will permanently and completely dismantle all of the nuclear material production facilities in the yongbyon area including plutonium and uranium and in the presence of u.s. experts and by the joint work of technicians in both countries he was told me this
2:16 pm
proposal was the biggest denuclearization vision that we could take in the present state in relation to the current level of confidence between the d.p. r. k. and the united states our diplomatic editor james has more on the summit from. kim jong un has stayed on in vietnam meeting with the country's president as his isolated nation needs all the friends it can get with the global sanctions now likely to stay in place following the failure of the summit what's happened has been a textbook example of the benefits and the drawbacks of top down face to face diplomacy bringing trump and came together last year in singapore worked they built a report and moved the world back from the brink of nuclear war. but in hanoi relying on the two leaders to conduct complex negotiations on the issues of north
2:17 pm
korea's nuclear program and the wide ranging global. wasn't a success the north korean leader took a tough position calling for all the most recent sanctions to be lifted it was a step too far for the u.s. he actually had papers ready to be signed but it just wasn't appropriate i want to do it right i'd much rather do it right and do it fast an expert on the korean peninsula told me why he believes kim pushed hard to get so many certain sions lifted so early in the process for the north koreans they see an opportunity to in the trump presidency to achieve some goals that they really wouldn't expect to achieve with a quote unquote normal president in the white house so for them there is a little bit of urgency and of course sanctions relief is a relatively urgent matter for north korea as a purely as a matter of economic expediency there have actually been two similar ten years diplomatic process is south korea's diplomacy with the north led the way of the
2:18 pm
winter olympics almost exactly one year ago and when u.s. diplomacy with north korea faltered at the end of last year it was president moon je in of south korea who rescued things. minutes off to boarding air force one then leaving vietnam the first person president trump phoned was president moon it's clear south korea is now being given the job of cleaning up this mess james but i'll just sit. still ahead on al-jazeera we are standing by at the waca it's hard border crossing between india and pakistan where the andean pilot who was a captured after his chat when town is set to be handed over we will keep you posted and investigators say they found evidence of possible war crimes by israeli forces against the protesters.
