1:15 am
they have to present north korea for the vision of implementation. that comes with a set of quote/unquote asks and data to have north korea act quickly and move ahead to denuclearize. james mattis is making his way to the region this week and stopping in china and south korea and japan where north korea is a top item on the agenda. when it comes to what north korea has done in the aftermath of the summit and if they are signals they are trustworthy. there were other agreements with the president and kim, a pledge to return the service members whose bodies were left since the korean war. president trump expects the return up to 200 sets of remains. we know there are 5,300 sets of remains belonging to u.s.

1:18 am
college without getting approval of a male guardian. some of the women we spoken to, michelle, say they think is going to change soon. they are seeing the loosening up to the repressive law. one thing we have to mention on this day, absent, not behind the wheel, but behind bars the women's rights activists who for years spent trying to campaign for the women's rights to drive in saudi arabia and they were rounded up in recent arrests of human rights activists here in the kingdom. michelle. >> just a step. it must have been great to be there, jomana. thank you. >> it is unusual. you want to celebrate. it is 2018. >> you have to see it both ways. you need permission to do this. however, you are seeing happy faces and celebrating. >> baby steps. >> nice to see happiness.
