9:08 pm
change that stance all at once. but others think kim could use disarmament to his advantage. kim jong un would seek to propagate the idea that he persuaded the u.s. and the international community to essentially surrender by having carefully mustard nuclear weapons so. the china visit comes ahead of a historic summit between north and south korea for april that meeting is expected to further focus on denuclearization. i'm joined here in the studio by his most there he is a korean analyst and a professor of east asian studies at the free university here in berlin it's good to have you back on the show let's talk about this this secret meeting we find out about it after the fact did they keep it
9:09 pm
a secret basically to protect the north korean leader's life were they afraid of an assassination attempt on yes that's for sure one reason why it's been kept secret the security issues very important but then there's another reason i suppose and that's in case the meeting doesn't go so well and the results are not so presentable then they could keep it under the carpet and wouldn't lose face they would lose face and losing face is something that particularly for the north korean leader is it's almost like a deadly blow isn't it he has to come back to his people in what he brought them right right in the best case scenario would be what we saw now a very good meeting with good results and would you say it was a good meeting with good results as far as we can know what we know through the media would say definitely yes because he told he reaffirmed he reassured she's in
9:10 pm
pain and the world that she is that he is committed to his pledge to abandon his sister make arsenal. certain conditions and place of course and made clear to everyone that he's taking this very seriously what do you think we see kim jong un going to china first before he meets with south korea or with the u.s. did he need to get maybe and assurance from china and from the president that we have your back no matter what it's definitely yes and if we look back into history that's only the natural very logical next step china has always been the most important. corporation the most important ally of north korea after the second world war and of course the us this has to discuss these matters with china south korea has to discuss. matters with the u.s. and when i look at the positions of power right now it's hard not to
9:11 pm
see china really standing out there particularly president xi jinping i mean is he showing even with this visit to the world that when it comes to north korea he is the gatekeeper. he is a very important player in the game when it comes to north korea and the east asian region but he doesn't multiple lies north korea he now knows that north korea is ready to take the seat with south korea even with the u.s. and that's for sure the reason why she's in being was very open to invite kim jong un to china today we saw the tweet from the u.s. president you know announcing that this meeting took place in what was interesting is that in the tweet double drop says i was informed by chinese president xi jinping. that shows a tremendous amount of clout on the part of the chinese president doesn't it yes absolutely and it's very important that all involved actors now act responsibly and

try to build trust and this shuttle diplomacy also between south korea and all the involved russia china japan and the u.s. was therefore very important and that's very important now that china also talks directly with the u.s. and look at these talks what do you think is the biggest risk right now to these talks. very bad coincidence that for example in the u.s. administration all of a sudden the hotline is take the seat and the whole process or that within north korea something happens that would have a bad result but that makes it so important that the people talk to each other and that the whole process is very transparent we heard also today from japan.
9:13 pm
there was this concern that. the talk is just being presented for the sake of talking and denuclearization is not the real goal do you think there's credibility i think japan is interested to to get on board and that's why being a little picky on the side we have here we want to be part of the story too of course we have to be cautious what we can expect from the talks but it is very important that these talks take place because that's the only chance is progress in this very important process all right. as always we appreciate your insights thank you thank you. in football brazil has ended germany's twenty two match unbeaten run. side defeated the south americans seven to one in the world cup semifinals four years ago but failed to fire in this friendly rematch brazil outplayed germany in defense and.
