7:11 am
it. had probably the biggest she would be a "solid partner." audience so far, and they brought out special guests including the pet shop boys, who performed always on after complaints that formula one is getting increasingly boring this my shop boys, who performed always on season, it's suddenly got interesting in austria. that's because ferrari's charles my man, and others. a lot to live up leclerc broke the track record at the red bull ring to claim pole position for today's grand prix ahead of runaway championship leader lewis hamilton. to, including the cure and kylie but afterwards the briton was punished after "unnecessarily minogue. thank you very much. impeding" kimi raikkonen. that saw him relegated to fourth on the grid with max verstappen promoted to second. the litter pickers have been a are big pleasure to drive the car, little bit slower than they were itjust felt great and very happy yesterday, they had it all picked up by this time yesterday but they are to bring pole position back home, but tomorrow we need taking a little bit longer this to finish thejob. morning. yes, but i think they with formula one happening today, deserved a bit of a lion, they have and we're looking ahead to wimbledon had a very difficult couple of days, tomorrow and the cricket world cup, and let's have half—an—hour sleep
7:12 am
then the women's world cup later, it m, and let's have half—an—hour sleep in, it will all be gone by the time is so hard to contain it all in one the first acts come on. i have bulletin. watched them year after year and i gave it a good go! they do a phenomenaljob.” we have the feedback now to the watched them year after year and they do a phenomenaljob. i wasjust demilitarised zone. i'm afraid there saying, i haven't seen much of glastonbury this year, but you can catch up with almost all the acts on isn't much to see other than a door, but if you are just tuning in we are bbc iplayer, sojust catch up with almost all the acts on bbc iplayer, so just take your pick and whisk through them. expecting a historic meeting between president trump of the us and let's return to one of our top chairman kim jong—un of stories now and president trump has president trump of the us and arrived in the south korean capital chairman kimjong—un of north korea, seoul, ahead of a possible meeting and here is president trump, right with the north korean leader kim jong—un. mr trump, who is in the region to discuss the flagging on cue, stepping out of those de—nuclearisation talks, aforementioned doors. suggested the meeting in a tweet, describing it as a the context of all of this is that president trump has just been at the 620 president trump has just been at the g20 meeting in osaka, injapan, and came back via south korea, had a meeting with president moonjae—in, spontaneous gesture. was there overnight and he he is crossing to the border. is anyone waiting for him? that is the question.
7:13 am
that is the question. that line is the actual border, that we were watching pictures a few moments ago of mr trump in the dmz. line there. we can see him walking over, and here comes kimjong—un on let's talk now to dr sojin lim the other side. you can see him from the international institute surrounded by other north korean of korean studies. officials. there is absolutely no doubt, this is an incredibly take us once again through what has historic, symbolic moment, if the happened here, and this particular visit to the dmz and how it came cameras can just capture it, historic, symbolic moment, if the cameras canjust capture it, as these two men meet. about. the dmz has been the place where people were not allowed to come in after the korean war amnesties agreement. so, for the the handshake is happening...” last 66 years we didn't have it, and never expected to meet you at this the nature and animals and things, and within the dmz, we still have place. minds around so it is a very dangerous place. mr trump is worth noting that no sitting visiting to see if he can have a american president has ever stepped chance to step up over the border, footin american president has ever stepped foot in north korea. it was a little and it would be something really historic indeed. we have seen us
7:14 am
relations with north korea sort of two steps forward and one step back. uncertain as to how long this this is a positive direction of travel, isn't it? i am not so sure, meeting would last, whether indeed it would actually happen. it came about, it was seen, as a result of because we haven't seen any concrete an invitation via twitter in which president trump said he would be in the dmz, if you would like to meet oi’ because we haven't seen any concrete or tangible discussions, especially there. he clearly knows was not that in terms of denuclearisation and is the picture that will really make sanctions, really. this could be an impression around the world. the fa ct an impression around the world. the fact that he is actually in north very dangerous to give a message korea, cross that line, and shook the hand of kimjong—un within north korea's borders. the korean that the us president is happy to peninsula of course divided since the end of the korean war in the meet someone who is abusing human rights, so i am quite sceptical that 19505. the diplomacy between the two this is not only positive. this can nations, the united states and north also show that they still have a korea, was non—existent for many, renegotiation, they still have a many decades and just in the last dialogue, they have good relations, two years since donald trump has been elected to office, things have so dialogue, they have good relations, so that could all be very positive at the same time. president trump, started to move forward. they have along with many other world leaders, is all about the optics. what looks stabbed sub— steps forward in a
7:15 am
couple of steps back before as well. good on tv, what looks impressive on stephen mcdonnell, alp social media, is there a danger that correspondent, —— our correspondent. this is just social media, is there a danger that this isjust a bit social media, is there a danger that this is just a bit of social media, is there a danger that this isjust a bit of pr, or do you think something like this can lead they are walking to south korean to something more meaningful? think something like this can lead to something more meaningful7m territory to pose for a photograph could be both ways. in terms of ona territory to pose for a photograph on a south korean soil. president moon of south korea is also in the entourage or has been earlier in the donald trump, he is looking towards visit with president trump who had a state visit in the soul last night and kimjong—un are now standing on his 2020 election. last night when and kimjong—un are now standing on he tweeted, the democratic a south korean soil. just seeing if candidates had a tv discussion session, and they had a huge number we can pick up any of the of audience members. it could be a conversation. as you can see, it is a little bit chaotic with the media. although the visit to the dmz was very good chance for him, but at the not planned, this was not same time because of hanoi, they necessarily, the meeting between these two men. not necessarily months in the planning at all. it didn't have a good chance to talk to seems to have been a very impromptu each other and this could be a breakthrough in terms of their meeting and therefore, it is a situation. so, it could also be little scrambled but nonetheless, positive, it goes both ways.
7:16 am
significant for it. i think we can president moonjae—in said this morning, and president trump said, that they both expected chairman kim talk to our correspondent who is a to come to the demilitarised zone. few miles away from where this particular meeting is now. stephen do you think he will? it could be mcdonnell, in seoul. what you think? quite embarrassing if he doesn't, couldn't it? i didn't think he would well, i can tell you, all eyes here come. you were suggesting you hadn't in seoul are on the televisions. seen anything that would suggest he would come. trump is planning to people can't believe it. you are leave career in 90 minutes, so he seeing first donald trump, striding into north korea, to meet kim really doesn't have enough time now. jong—un. the two of them coming back across the border. stephen even though it will only be for a 15 mcdonnell, let's see if we can get a minute talk or a two minute talk, as mrtrump minute talk or a two minute talk, as mr trump suggested, we still don't see that turning anything around translation on what kim jong—un has yet, and we don't know how he can just said and see if we can hear reach there. he could still be from donald trump as well. considering if he needs to come or not, but if he doesn't turn up it u nfortu nately from donald trump as well. unfortunately it seems there is no will be a huge embarrassment for sound on the picturesjust unfortunately it seems there is no sound on the pictures just for the donald trump because he said mr kim moment. we are relying on a microphone on top of that camera but thatis
7:17 am
confirmed he was coming. our picture microphone on top of that camera but that is the feed that is coming in from the korean border, feed from the demilitarised zone for the moment has gone, so we will wait unfortunately... we concede we can and see if it comes back. pick up some of the sound again. president trump talked about the fa ct president trump talked about the fact that the two of these men had we are keeping a close eye on events at that particular region at the exchanged letters recently and he moment. if they look like there's said in an earlier press conference any more movement there, we will bring it to you. it was a beautiful himself, he felt like they had an understanding but they were getting to know each other. we're going to day across the country yesterday. we have had some lovely pictures are sentin have had some lovely pictures are sent in from our weather watcher ‘s. be in to know each other. we're going to beina to know each other. we're going to be in a talk for a little while about different things and a lot of positive things are happening and a hot summer's day i'm glad you could be here to see it on the beach in scarborough, north yorkshire, was captured by gary gimmick. here's a picture of some colourful tremendous positivity. really great lilos taken in camber, things are happening in a lot of east sussex, by peter and leah. and this is of a well dressing,. places but we met and we liked each other from day one and that was very thank you everybody who continues to sendin thank you everybody who continues to send in photographs. i think the important. good weather continues. apps not

forecast. an expert in korean demilitarised zone has been planned studies. she was saying she expects for sometime, the north korean leader was given 24 hours to somehow president trump to stay for another get all the logistics to somehow get 1.5 hours before he leaves korea and all the logistics together to come down from pyongyang to meet donald therefore there mightjust simply not be tired. she wasn't aware that trump at the demilitarised zone. it kim jong—un was not be tired. she wasn't aware that kimjong—un was in is quite incredible. —— even though not be tired. she wasn't aware that kim jong—un was in the area but her sources will obviously be better donald trump cosmic trip to the than ours. president trump with a smile for the camera, nonetheless, demilitarised zone. —— donald trump. as he listens to president moon speaking to the troops. we don't know whether kim jong—un is going to meet him or not. although he will fully appreciate, presumably, an they are going inside where more intended nod to the significance of his presence. trying to look back on history and see whether there was substantive talks will take place. we don't expect them to last very any significant meeting of visit by long but maybe this is about any significant meeting of visit by an american leader to north korea. kickstarting the process again. as we we re kickstarting the process again. as we were mentioning earlier, the last formal meeting they had was in hanoi the last president of former president to visit the area was about this denuclearisation process presidentjimmy carter and met kim and it didn't really get anywhere. il—sung there back in1991i as in fact, it broke up earlier than
7:22 am
presidentjimmy carter and met kim il—sung there back in 1994 as the two of them developed a bilateral had been planned. maybe this is about trying to get things back on step—by—step peace plan and that was track again. we will continue to monitor these pictures. in the long after he left office, of meantime, let's talk to a gas here in the studio who is the direct of course,jimmy the international institute of long after he left office, of course, jimmy carter. this is the korean buddies at the university of first us president to visit the dmz, certainly if he stepped over the central lancashire. —— gassed here border into north korea, that would be unique. that would indeed. no sitting us president has ever been in the studio. i bet you never expected to see a us president to north korea. 0bviously for many, stepping into north korea. —— guest. many years, the korean war back in the 50s now, the korean peninsula never. they tried times before but has been divided for many decades. it didn't happen. even after president trump, i don't know if we can hear what he is saying. we president nish their time, they try to have a trip but it didn't happen. didn't give him much notice but we —— finished their time. this is remarkable indeed. even though they respect each other. we respect each other. maybe we like each other. he don't have proper substance from has agreed to meet and i am going to today's meeting, i still think this could be a good, positive sign. meet him in about four minutes. i'm especially when they are now sending going to cut my speech a little bit altogether with president moon from the south and kim jong—un from the short other than to say you are terrific people, you have done a north and that could be a good fantastic job and we indication for the future but now terrific people, you have done a fantasticjob and we are with you all the way. you know that. there we
7:23 am
90, all the way. you know that. there we they moved into the office and it go, we heard it from president trump will be a critical moment for them, himself. he is going to meet kim how they can continue to seize this moment afterwards. just to describe jong—unin himself. he is going to meet kim jong—un in about four minutes. kim the people what's happened in the last couple of hours, president jong—un in about four minutes. kim jong—un is there. the meeting is trump was in seoul overnight with going to take place and then the symbolism, obviously, it is the president moon and they too went to handshake. we know the two men have the demilitarised zone together and met american troops and south korean troops and in that to kill a moment, met a couple of times already. the he confirmed he would be meeting kim rhetoric has been toned down jong—un and then we saw these considerably in recent times. it was only a couple of years ago he was remarkable pictures of him crossing called rocket man, president trump the border. ——in that particular talking about the north korean leader. now preparing to meet him and perhaps, haps, that very moment. it is a lot. if it was an symbolic moment, if he does indeed step over the lied, over into north easy task than when we had the korea. 0ne step over the lied, over into north private talks for, it could have korea. one would imagine he would happened but this is not so simple. step over into north korea if they are going to have the meeting unless before the denuclearisation process, kimjong born before the denuclearisation process, kim jong born needs to see how the kim jong—un stepped into the dmz. —— over the line. resident trump other countries can guarantee. —— kim jong—un. his region alluded to a long planned visit to
7:24 am
the dmz in his tweets and then there other countries can guarantee. —— kimjong—un. his region is under dictatorship. it is not up to the was this tweet which came yesterday president trump to guarantee in which he said, "i will be there at the border of the dmz stop if anything. they need to see how they can continue this process. how chairman kim of north korea sees important, from the north korean this, i would love to shake his hand point of view, i mean, it is clear what the us wants from them, to and say hello (i?) which is " —— scale back the nuclear programme, how important is it that the sanctions are relaxed ? how important is it that the sanctions are relaxed? it could be two ways again. kim jong—un, some say that as a leader, he has whatever he needs so if he doesn't ca re whatever he needs so if he doesn't care about his people that he (!?)". this is an informal way of doesn't need to worry about the sanctions situation. his father, his doing it. he certainly does things ina grandfather, especially his father, doing it. he certainly does things in a different way in the way that was pretty much 0k, even under the convention has dictated sanctions situation but at the international diplomacy is done for top he uses social media a lot and moment, he is only young leader and this is the way he extended this if he sees his future for the next invitation, it seems, to kim 40 have a 50 years, he can't live jong—un. president trump moving away like this. —— 40—50. the situation now. we should talk about the is different. now the market is more
7:25 am
coverage from the south korean broadcasters who were there and the connections from their radio cameras or less capitalised by people. from will go wherever donald trump goes and you would imagine, if he is the grassroots, the situation is different for top people now have a about to meet kim jong—un, better access, more access to and you would imagine, if he is about to meet kimjong—un, as he said he is, he is not going to want internet. they know what it is like outside north korea and now they to not have that moment on tv. we know much more than before and will stay live with these pictures because of that, kim jong—un can't at the moment. resident trump live this situation otherwise they meeting representatives of american troops on the north south korean border. —— president trump. we will can have a coup. so some kind of wait to see the cameras follow him through. it is worth reminding you, the topsy—turvy in nature of their economic revival is essential to his relationship. insults happen, thrown long—term future. and also, of course, he is very close to insults in the past, they have had a president xijinping of course, he is very close to president xi jinping of china and course, he is very close to president xijinping of china and he will see how china has managed that series of meetings. however, the process of economic liberalisation. yes, and not only china. he already mentioned that when he had the hanoi meeting in vietnam, as well. keeping last one in hanoi was not terribly this communist political system, he productive. nothing concrete came out of it and in fact, the meeting can adapt part of capitalised market was cut short and had originally been planned. in the meantime, john systems which he can't avoid at the moment because it is already there wood has been strengthening his so he needs to think about his already strong ties with china, people, their needs, and because of meetings with president xi jinping. that, he does need to the sanction relief. the point you make about the
7:26 am
—— north korea has been people, the human rights record in north korea is absolutely can't keep and it is something that doesn't get strengthening their strong ties with china. diplomatically, there is an talked about when you think about awful lot of work to be done. these are symbolic moments and they nuclear versus sanctions. it is certainly grab picture headlines but absolutely key. ——it is absolutely they are —— there is certainly a lot key. people in north korea live in of ha rd to they are —— there is certainly a lot of hard to permitted work if terrible conditions, many of them. something concrete will come out in this. drifting to think decades of yes, many of them indeed. before, no diplomatic contact between the when they had less access to the information, they even didn't have united states and north korea and the vocabulary human rights is that has everybody has always said, north they didn't know what it means and korea is a very small state that the because of that, that can show us how terrible it is and kim jong—un progressives — make the progress it really needs to face and prepare for has made in its nuclear programme has made in its nuclear programme has made in its nuclear programme has made it something the united the situation that he opens society. states has had to take considerable interest in. but the release of otto see if we can listen to him. i don't know if there is a translation, maybe you can pick up on the gist of what he is saying. warmbier, the us student who was held in captivity in north korea, he was returned in what pyongyang was
7:27 am
calling humanitarian grounds. it started the somatic ball rolling. they were insults back and forth later in 2017 then that breakthrough only at the beginning of last year when kim jong—un said he was open to dialogue with president trump and they met in singapore just over a year ago but then negotiations, as you said, have struggled a little are you getting the just of what he is seeing? he said the borderline bit in hanoi with their last meeting. just to remind you, if you was a sign of divided arejust meeting. just to remind you, if you are just joining meeting. just to remind you, if you arejustjoining us, we are looking at pictures live from the dmz, the area of land between north korea and south korea. president trump has paid a visit there this morning, the koreas and it could be a positive first us president to do so since sign for the future. he is holding the conflict between the two nations was demilitarised. he had earlier the camera above his head and the microphone is on the camera so he is yesterday sent out a tweet
7:28 am
suggesting he would be happy and willing to meet kimjong—un, the leader of north korea, of course, and just a few moments ago, in that impromptu meeting with representatives from south korean military and us military, he confirmed he would be meeting kim jong—unin confirmed he would be meeting kim jong—un ina confirmed he would be meeting kim jong—un in a roundabout, welcome at that time he said four minutes was not well, that was at least five minutes ago. so presumably at any minutes ago. so presumably at any minute now. don't know whether cameras will be there. if they are, we will return to those pictures and try and tell you. we will continue to monitor the feed. let's take a look at the papers. bbc breakfast. the political historian mike finn look at the papers. bbc breakfast. the political historian mike firm is here from the university of exeter. 0n here from the university of exeter. on that story, how seriously do you ta ke on that story, how seriously do you take moments like that in terms of its symbolism in political history? conventionally, you take the more
7:29 am
seriously because of the nature of donald trump is ‘s approach and style over the last few years has diluted the symbolism, if that makes sense. if you think back to build clinton in the 905. — mike bill clinton. ya55er arafat. these were very pivotal moments in the peace process. “— very pivotal moments in the peace proce55. —— bill clinton. here, this i5a proce55. —— bill clinton. here, this is a bit more like when i turned up to school karaoke and i failed to sign upfor to school karaoke and i failed to sign up for it. there seems to be a bit of a vibe of well, this is com pletely bit of a vibe of well, this is completely unorthodox, nobody knows what to make of it. and yet, he has had more progress than any of his predecessors, to be fair, in terms of actually trying to spark a day of dialogue. do we give him credit for that? -- dialogue. do we give him credit for that? —— 5park dialogue. do we give him credit for that? —— spark a dialogue. dialogue. do we give him credit for that? -- spark a dialogue. speaking to somebody who used to be a political advisor, this is cobb ma55ey progre55. political advisor, this is cobb ma55ey progress. what is the end? — make cosmetic progress. —— cosmetic progress. just for people watching
7:30 am
at home, ourfeed has gone for progress. just for people watching at home, our feed has gone for the moment and says in big letters, " standby, please stand by for more". we will stand by for more. the one thing president trump has got is lots of personality and animal magnetism but according to the 0bserver magnetism but according to the observer today in terms of the tory leadership campaign, animal magnetism may not enough. this is a poll of tory voters and they are asked who they prefer and on what criteria about who they prefer between boris johnson criteria about who they prefer between borisjohnson and criteria about who they prefer between boris johnson and jeremy huntand between boris johnson and jeremy hunt and one of the conservative correspondence has wallowed him around and the gas — make the gap has closed and jeremy hunt's performance is slightly better — the 93p- performance is slightly better — the gap. they are trying to say, eventually, in the story, this is a contest. you need to have more substance than the panache of iris johnson and this could be it. the reality is its nonsense.

if anyone was wondering what was happening, rachel wasjust if anyone was wondering what was happening, rachel was just plugging in my earphone, which had come out! thank you! this story is about whether children are taking up the school dinners that are being offered, there has been a huge push from jamie oliver and others for healthy school dinners. 0nly from jamie oliver and others for healthy school dinners. only 60 or 70% of primary school age kids are actually taking up school dinners, with 40% still taking packed lunches. i think one issue cited is anxiety. some children have fear of missing out on playtime, or they
7:32 am
have anxiety around going into the lunchroom. school lunches are very short, there is not a lot of time. they are quite brief now, and kids do for missing out. many would prefer do for missing out. many would p refer to do for missing out. many would prefer to be out kicking balls around. continuing the food theme, it isa around. continuing the food theme, it is a bit ofa around. continuing the food theme, it is a bit of a movable feast at the moment! 00:32:28,862 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 the headlines are coming up.
