that we can work to stand up for women's rights. now one answer down we three boys of egypt starting. on d w. pomp and pageantry for kim jong un china gives north korea's leader a lavish welcome at the start of a secret trip to beijing mr kim is said to have assured china's president xi that he's committed to denuclearize ation we'll bring you reaction from washington also on the program france almost a fallen hero the police officer killed in last week's terrorist attack is hailed as a symbol of the country's spirit of resistance. and russia holds a day of mourning as funerals a held for the sixty four people who died in the weekend's deadly fire at a shopping mall in siberia many of the dead which killed.
i'm phil gal welcome to the program. after days of rumors it has been confirmed that north korea's leader kim jong un did visit china this week he's meeting with president xi jinping was kept under wraps until after he left yesterday the hope is that this is the problem to talk about nuclear disarmament today u.s. president donald trump tweeted that he had received a message from president xi saying that the meeting had gone well that north korea's leader was looking forward to meeting him mr trump then went on to say that until that u.s. sanctions would remain in place and that pressure must be maintained at all costs so here is no came jones 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 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 yet 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 business comes ahead of a historic so miss 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 and washington welcome clare those talks are said to have lasted four days what we learned of the contents well crumbs 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 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 dates and a venue for these talks between kim jong un and president trump 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 or even when this could play out are not really clear yet. so what is america expecting from lease talks presuming they do take place. i think 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 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 clever interested in washington thank you. francis held a state funeral in all of the place when killed in last week's terror attack left. died of his wounds after exchanging himself for a female hostage tributes in paris were led by the country's president in one you will not call. nation foreigners. french president emmanuel mccaughan awards the legion of honor to. its france's

could hear what was happening inside then after hearing gunshots reinforcements went in shooting the twenty six year old islamist attacker and ending the four hour ordeal. there tom died for his country and his memory will live on in france today his nation saluted its hero. and gave him a most distinguished sendoff. or on this from day to lisa lewis in paris well tell us more about president eulogy and today's memorial. well his speech was really emotional this morning very solemn he said tom was a child of france he was standing up to him oh my call called islamised craziness and he then went on to compare our no better time to historic heroes of this country such as resistance fighters during the second world war i was on doc and he said that france was under attack from an underlying islamist
radicalism and that people shouldn't listen to those messages spread on social networks because they should instead look up their ground over time he was standing here as a hero and he would be a much better example really and these other people like little bit that will be remembered by france and not those who spread terror really for the whole country has been paying tribute today to describe the mood in paris for us. absolutely the minutes of silent silence held across the country and during that procession actually this morning the coffin was taken from the point here in paris to the lead the place where france pays its highest tributes to its here is over war and people were lining the streets although it was pouring down with rain because as they said it was important for them to be there to pay their tributes and actually to recognize what this man had done for france one man at the
procession said you know he has given his life for our country this is really the least we can do for him. france has another reason to mourn today tell us about where you're standing on what's going on. yeah absolutely let's just have a look around here where at the moment this is the plaza that a nazi on a square where people are gathering right now in remembrance of me they call an eighty five year old holocaust survivor that was attacked last friday she was killed through eleven she was stabbed in her apartment not far from here and was then burned so to as the family as the family put it then to raise all her memory people are here they're come they've come together to march in some kind of circuit to her apartment a bit later on and to pay tribute to her and to the family and indeed the president
mentioned mirror that in this morning ceremony yes absolutely he was talking about the attackers the two the three attackers really last friday because apparently there are two people who are now suspects in this case and this may make no case and he said that all these people who are attacking french values of solidarity of liberty and that they were the enemy but france should stand together and she said the french president said that you know you can all was in a sense vulnerable woman he shouldn't be shouldn't have been targeted and that france really needed to stand together baseless in paris thank you. now to some of the other stories making news around the world cuts alone as politics as pasta symbolic motion affirming the right of the region's former separatist leader kind of supposed to be elected to his old job was to promote has been held in a german jail since sunday why german police arrested him on
