kim jong un's first foreign trip since he came to power. heavy security for an unnamed visitor making their way through beijing. then pomp and ceremony as the mysterious individual is confirmed as no other the north korean leader kim jong un it's a historic moment as cames first diplomatic trip outside of the rogue nation since he took power in two thousand and eleven rumors had been circulating for days that the mysterious armored train crossing the yellow river from pyongyang had came on board but it was only confirmed after kim and his wife were safely back home according to china's state news agency she pressed kim on north korea to give up its nuclear weapons came apparently replied quote the issue of denuclearization of the korean peninsula can be resolved of south korea and the united states respond to our efforts with good will create an atmosphere of peace and stability while
5:03 pm
taking progressive and synchronous measures for the realisation of peace but many are skeptical about whether or not kim jong un would really scale down the program after the north korean government has worked so hard to celebrate its development. a little i don't think he will officially declared the nuclearization because he has been emphasizing the importance of nuclear weapons a lot he has particularly been stressing that the nuclear program makes the country strong and that the country can defeat the united states with it he can't totally change that stance all at once. but others think kim could use disarmament to his advantage. would seek to propagate the idea that he persuaded the u.s. and the international community to essentially surrender by having carefully mustered nuclear weapons so. the china visit comes ahead of

a historic so mess between north and south korea show jewels for april that meeting is expected to further focus on denuclearization. let's get more on this from t.w. correspondent claire richardson in washington welcome clare those talks are said to have lasted four days what we learned of the contents. well terms of the news that he received from she about the meeting is that his meeting with kim went well and indeed the official reports that we saw coming out of both sides from north korea and china after this meeting took place really emphasized the country's good working relationship together this is seen as their effort to downplay tensions between the two nations china of course traditionally north korea's strongest ally but the past several months china's support for u.n. sanctions in north korea has really put a strain on their ties so the point of this meeting for china at least seems to be largely an effort to save face to try and present itself as
5:05 pm
a relevant player in any north korea talks especially after south korea and the u.s. have been the ones making headlines on the north korea question but what about the venue for these talks between kim jong un and president has anything been decided yet. well certainly the question of where meetings between u.s. and north korean negotiation negotiators it should take place is always the source of a lot of hand-wringing especially now that this would be the first time a sitting u.s. president would meet with a north korean leader the stakes are even higher than usual it could take place in the demilitarized zone for example like the upcoming meeting between the south and north koreans that will be taking place in a truce village in april or it could take place in a neutral third country like singapore or somewhere in europe but any proposal we see from either side is going to make the other very suspicious as to its intentions and the details of how we're even when this could play out are not
5:06 pm
really clear yet. so what is america expecting for elise talks presuming they do take place. well i think trump would love to be the president who says that he gets north korea to agree to stop its nuclear program and to show that his policy of what he calls maximum pressure is really working but i seems pretty unrealistic given the fact that the north's repeatedly said it would do no such thing believes its nuclear program is in many ways fundamental to its very existence so the question becomes what points could they compromise on and certainly there are a few things north korea might want to see up for discussion like for example the u.s. and south korean joint military drills which are always a major point of tension in the region club richest in washington thank you. now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world been last parliament as you like to the new president for the country sixty six year old when my and as seen here in the yellow jacket behind our son so she had the backing of

known to be radicalized then obviously all the other people are saying this is impossible they are about twenty thousand people on that list and that would be against the convention of human rights there is this discussion going on here but most people actually support the government as saying that the government is actually doing what it can and everybody should stand up together to terrorism here in france. in paris thank you. funerals are taking place in siberia for the victims of the shopping mall the weekend the whole nation is observing a day of mourning but the heartache is mixed with anger many believe that your forces are trying to cover up like safety standards that may have contributed to the high death toll. the size of the coffin should the scale of this tragedy most of the victims of the fire with children whose parents lost their daughter and son ten year old masha and eight
