us president donald trump is reported to have demanded north korea hand over its nuclear weapons when the two leaders met in vietnam last month that's according to the reuters news agency it says trump presented kim jong un with a document calling for his nuclear arsenal to be sent to the u.s. a lunch between the two leaders was canceled the same day before the summit was cut short article hain has the details from washington. this letter is significant because of what has happened in the past we know the national security advisor john bolton wants to pursue in north korea what he calls the libyan model that is where libya gave up its nuclear weapons or they believe they did give the nuclear weapons chemical biological weapons sent it to the united states in return for sanctions relief that is something that infuriated the north koreans they said that was a nonstarter and they were to cancel negotiations so president donald trump came
3:06 am
out and said no we don't want the libyan model obviously north koreans are very aware of what eventually happened to moammar gadhafi the leader of libya who was killed by rebels and overthrown in his country so the letter basically spells out what the u.s. wants and that is sending all of the nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the united states complete disarmament of the biological chemical weapons full inspections getting rid of all missile sites basically that is what the u.s. says is full the nuclearization that is a nonstarter for kim jong un he has said that he wants to negotiate directly with the u.s. president donald trump who often talks about the letters that he. calls them love letters says they're in love this is clearly the president's staff trying to make sure he doesn't give too much away because of that what he calls such a great relationship so they're laying out the terms that are obviously not favorable to him and could explain why the negotiations simply broke down mexico's president has been reluctant to get into
3:07 am
a war of words with donald trump reacting to the u.s. president's threat to close de shed border say he'll do it next week if mexico doesn't stop people from crossing over a legally here's what andres manuel lopez obrador had to say in response. will you . believe essentially just i'm not going to start an argument with this i'm going to be very cautious due to a series of circumstances along them because we want to lead a very good relationship with the government of the united states. live now to here as man in the mexican border city of tijuana not of people where you are in tijuana are in limbo because of the hard line immigration policies of the u.s. president. that's absolutely right and do you want to being such an important border with the united states and these threats by president donald trump don't seem to be having any sort of or any sort of effect on the mindset of
3:08 am
migrants and it certainly doesn't change anything in central america where these people are coming from it doesn't change the high levels of violence the extreme poverty and it doesn't change the political corruption that drives these people out of their countries through mexico in search of the u.s. southern border in fact the same threats that president trump is making to cut funding to central american countries contradicts his own advisers who say that this money is of importance of great importance to stem the flow of migrants leaving central america here in tijuana we visited a migrant shelter to get a sense of what the mindset is of migrants who are stuck here unable to to move into the united states but also unwilling to return to their home countries take a look. it's another day at a migrant shelter on the us mexico border almost everyone here is from central america and they're seeking asylum in the united states. in the past migrants would be allowed to wait in the u.s. while the cases were considered but
3:09 am
a change in policy by the trumpet ministration now requires them to be sent back to mexico until the case numbers are called at the i arrived in tehran and applied for a number because they said that with the number everything would work out now i'm seeing that's not the case in. most of the people at the shelter have been here for several months many of them tell us they don't feel safe just. the americans asked me if i had somewhere to stay in tijuana i said no we don't we don't have family here or anything and they asked if it's dangerous for us in mexico and i said yes we run a risk there but they still send us back here i don't feel that's right. the city of the one has seen an increase in violent crime in recent months there have been almost by. hundred people killed so far in two thousand and eighteen adding to the more than twenty five hundred homicides reported last year. for central american
3:10 am
asylum seekers like nineteen year old idea of being stuck in mexico seems just as dangerous as returning to his home in honduras i think. i want to get kidnapped or something worse because of all the criminals as a migrant you get scared but no matter i suppose we have to stay here for some time . human rights advocate victor clark says the change in policy by the u.s. is turning the mexico side of the border into a massive waiting room for asylum applicants look at it but what the united states is intending to do is dissuade migrants by making the asylum process in the united states more bureaucratic an estimated two hundred forty individuals have been sent back to the one under the trumpet ministrations remain in mexico program but as the policy expands to more cities along the border that number is expected to rise significantly. the trouble to search continues to call on mexico to stop more migrants from moving through the country stop more migrants from
3:11 am

3:21 am
betrayed by their politicians who promise them breaks it on the twenty ninth of march which was the date that prime minister driesum a had promised obviously that date came and went because the e.u. offered a short extension if her deal was passed this week in parliament obviously it wasn't but she's still insisting that it might come back in the near future and with that in mind one hundred seventy members of parliament from her own conservative party have written to to resume including minister is urging her now to give up and to either go for the no deal option some people call it crushing out which would be on the twelfth of april that's the new deadline or and also rather to stay away from the idea of a customs union that's what the opposition labor party has been pushing and that's what some people backing the the idea in these indicative votes want to see happen in the next few days and when you mention indicative votes these are the possible
3:22 am
options for bracks it outside of the deal that reason may has put together what what is likely to happen next week because monday is going to be a very important day. that's right at least monday it could go on further we know that we're likely to see some of the same ideas which were rejected which didn't find a majority this last week come back to see if there can be consensus to whittle them down including the idea of treason maze withdrawal agreement plus a customs union or revoking article fifty or the idea of another referendum even it's not exactly clear about what will happen but it could extend into wednesday if nothing gets decided on monday but guess what two reason may has hinted she doesn't feel bound by these indicative votes and ministers or rather her spokespeople are still saying that she hopes that the ticking clock can concentrate
3:23 am
mines to back her deal that now her deal involves a political declaration for the future relations with the e.u. which she separated out to try to get it through parliament on friday it was rejected so it's not clear what will happen with that but at the same time she says she doesn't want no no deal breaks it lots of people here don't so between the lines some m.p.'s admit that there might have to be a general election to get out of his own pass. another difficult week could well lie ahead thank you very much and the barber and westminster well as a politicians continue to wrangle of the country's departure from the e.u. there are growing concerns about the impact of bright said on the u.k.'s image abroad advertising experts say the hostile tone of the debate is doing damage to brand person eve barker reports from london. but exit the. even fabian here doctor the breakthrough in fiasco fit to reason made the world is trying to fathom. it's seen by many countries as

3:28 am
a unified position arab leaders are presenting on the main issues follow the leader out in a position where they need to tell the people. can you hear me please go on. so. coming under pressure to show their people are standing united against the move by the u.s. administration to recognize israel's occupation of the girl and hide in syria but also the u.s. administration moved to also recognize jerusalem as israel's capital palestinian officials have been very critical of the arab world is saying that because of the divide of the arab leaders over the last few years the americans and the israelis are taking advantage as posing agenda but they're also talking about other divisive
3:29 am
issues like for example the saying that iran should pull out its proxy fighters from syria and from yemen but they are not talking about the humanitarian crisis in the yemen and i think this could be because they don't want to further upset saudi arabia and the united arab emirates who leave the coalition against the head of the militias in yemen and this meeting on libya happening on the sidelines of the arab league summit hashim what is the united nations hoping to achieve. well the building behind there is where the meeting is taking place it started without the presence of. the head of the president's council of libya and we were told that he should be here any time soon and this is a crucial meeting where the international community the african union the european
3:30 am
union and the arab league are trying to convince the two warring factions in libya the government in tripoli of the authorities in the east to negotiate a settlement that would pave the way for an end to the transition and new presidential and parliamentary elections one of the stumbling blocks over the last few months were basically. the issue of who should lead the army general who is in the he wants to be the top military commander of all libya something that has been dismissed by. the army in libya should be led by a civilian authority the e.u. is represented by for there come the really. their your foreign policy chief and the e.u. is very concerned and the navy operation on the mediterranean was implemented four years ago to prevent smugglers from smuggling immigrants into europe and they want to have a strong unified army in libya and also
3:31 am
a strong unified political authority and this has been straining relations between the u.s. and the libyan government just a lot over the last few days the government in tripoli has been very critical of us and the united nations envoy in the libya saying that he is trying to advance for an agenda in the country thank you for that. life or is that the arab league summit in tunisia or let's speak some more about the situation in libya now two months or professor of political science at the university of texas at san antonio he's via skype from there thank you so much for being with us as hashem mentioned i don't know if you have able to hear him there were already some tensions between the u.n. envoy to libya. and libyan politicians ahead of this meeting in chinese do you expect anything concrete to come out of this gathering. the truth is possible thank you for y.t. but secondly i don't think anything is going to come out of this we've seen this
3:32 am
going on and on and on the biggest problem is that those who need to have no center of gravity be the man the man who holds all the cards right now and whether we like it i'm not assessed and listen i have to wonder and trying to pose a congress that works at certain conditions but such certainly isn't going to work right why for her and her basis for us this is a russian seller might be recognised by an international community but it's a little less libyans because it with the mideast soon see this government as being a legitimate more important this is someone who doesn't control libya he barely controls tripoli and he knew there was in control of the present control that it's better than ever to us having more and more and more support so right liz here guess what nothing's going to happen actually for have to was in riyadh digest a few days ago meeting with saudi leaders. as you say seems to be getting more support he seems to be in the most powerful position right now how do they bending
3:33 am
gauge with him. well you know that to be smart indeed indeed indeed it was pretty fucked up i mean didn't have a framework that rubin brought provides follow up to civility it was pretty government put some check on him is ok i'm going to fly and he wants to believe the army but on the for the flight the final would is it the government said the the civilian government this is a form of this can be devised to make this but the big total over here is listen why doesn't want to give up power you didn't give up and militias in tripoli don't want to give up the biggest activity in the west which is the front that sure doesn't really give them a lot so what did what is next is mississauga sort of a new wait outside troop pretty full in method to get fluids and then it'll be invited in by just putting this with open arms so this so-called quartet wants to drop a roadmap to elections in libya how.
