experts in the two koreas the rival nations on thursday have choose an april twenty seventh to bring the two leaders together for face to face talks the planned finalizes days after a nuclear armed north korea's kim jong un made his international debut with a surprise trip to china. it was a slightly awkward handshake at the start of the meeting but the leaders of the north and south korean delegations were determined to put on a united front. but there have been many historic events including the recent winter olympics made possible by our combined efforts strength and determination with this in mind i would like you to convey the north korean people's gratitude to south korean government officials and their people. all the progress we have achieved today's meeting and what will happen from now on they're all happening because of the decisions made by the leaders of north and south korea it's important that we have
a sincere discussion in order to ensure the shuttle into korean summit is successful. now a date for that summit has been set on april twenty seventh north korea's leader kim jong un will come here to the so-called truce village of panmunjom on the border between the two koreas if the meeting goes ahead it will be only the third of its kind since the end of the korean war more than sixty years ago. the announcement came a day after it was confirmed km young un made a surprise visit to china where he met president xi jinping china's foreign ministry said kim pledged his commitment to denuclearization. tension ever north korea's nuclear weapons escalated last year after pyongyang tested several ballistic missiles sparking a war of words between community and u.s. president on a trump. but since the winter olympics in south korea when athletes
from the north and the south much together at the opening ceremony relations between the one time furrows have thought. whether north korea's leader really is willing to make any concessions and limit his nuclear ambitions will be revealed at the end of april. joining me now is aiden foster carter he's a korea expert from leeds university in the u.k. it and how surprised are you by the fact of the two koreas a holding this summit. well i got i have to my surprise i mean the thing that was the new news today of course just to have the date but early on i was quite surprised i was like many people i was pessimistic i thought that kim jong un and then they introduced a tactical thaw in his new year's address to the north korean leader of course for the olympics so once the olympics are over you get back to the same old threats which were a failure last year and they need care missile testing but the south koreans have
taken their opportunity they had a successful high level visits and it looks like we're having a summit and of course the even most surprising about less such a prospect a month later all of a summit between literals korean leader and u.s. president trump something that's never happened before so we are way off i think in a new and more hopeful place tentatively but sooner or later it will have to sort of flesh help us out yeah and second that they're working extend tears came john on faber i think a rattling gotten the attention he wants what need killing young agree to dialogue . i think you're right if you sense that sort of they may seem like opposite save iraq thing in dialogue but i think that one has led to the other. kim jong un suddenly got the world's attention in iran the maligned way last year basically by a flurry of missile and nuclear tests mainly missile which showed that his capabilities north korea's capabilities are far greater than we actually thought from that position of strength he may feel he then does what may seem like a u.
turn and declares he is ready to dialogue but as i say the key thing will be what actual content goes into that box dialogue is an empty box unless you have proposals forty nuclearize ation which are acceptable at least for discussing to all sides. not a lot of issues out for discussion but that kim jong un has just come back from beijing to what extent is china or constraining these developments from that. i don't think china is on the straight in anything and i think probably china is annoyed china was rather a look like expelled from the orchestra i think there's another smart move by kim jong un put it this way if he was already very anomalous given that china the historical relationship in that north crystal depends on china economically for nearly all of its trade so to have had a thirst for a meeting with south korea and then was trying to have gone to china that would have been genuinely radical so he restores
a kind of normality but this quick trip from his father's playbook you know sheik written outside afterwards and so on but the content i don't know i mean i think he's got the chinese guessing as much as anybody else i mean i guess they can go on first somebody who's a new fighters might know the thory latest he or his advisors up playing a pretty good hand of poker here if all sokoto from leeds university thank you very much for that analysis thank hear nobel peace prize minimal i'll use of his return to her country of origin pakistan it's a first visit after being shot by the taliban the failed assassination attempt on the van school in two thousand and twelve shocked the blood madonna was talking to for promoting education for girls but she's defused to be silenced and become an international icon for women's education and human rights. the signs were that this was no who would revisit heavy security accompanied by you sympathize dornan rival in his nom about the place convoy proof of the threat still faces from the taliban
