leaders meet in canada. welcome to the program on mount hermon u.s. president donald trump has arrived in singapore for tuesday's highly anticipated summit with north korean leader kim jong un trumps plane landed a short time ago after traveling from the g. seven summit into back. kim arrived earlier today the summit will be the first time a north korean leader has met with a sitting u.s. president it's expected that there discuss pyongyang's nuclear arsenal and possible efforts to formally in the korean war. we have our correspondent on the ground in singapore now and he joins us ok both kim jong un and donald trump have now arrived in singapore bastion it's hard to overstate what an enormous
3:02 pm
occasion this is could you just take us through what's happened today. sure earlier this afternoon kim jong own arrived here in singapore airport on an air china flights he then went on to meet the south. singaporean singaporean prime minister they sat down and talked for around thirty minutes kim jong un thanked the prime minister of singapore for hosting this summit for organizing the summit obviously on a very short notice the prime minister congratulated kim jong un on what he said was a bold step that he took to to come here and to agree to this summit and then went to his hotel here in singapore and later in the evening air force one arrived with donald trump he also went to his hotel turn a different hotel of course security around both of these venues and around of
3:03 pm
course the venue where the summit will take place on tuesday is extremely high here in singapore now having said that seeing a poor of course there is always a lot of police around it's always a very secure place to be which is also one of the reasons why the summit actually took place here so that's where we stand right now tomorrow president trump is going to meet with the prime minister and on tuesday. the long awaited summit between trump and kim was all right we got high expectations obviously for these talks but you know trump was not a very agreeable mood in canada this past weekend is he going to be ready to strike a deal with kim jong un on tuesday. that's really anyone's guess he said before he before coming here he said that kim jong il had a one shot had one shot at peace here and i've spoken to experts who agree with that
3:04 pm
they say this is the time if this if there is no deal or nothing no agreement here then that north korea is going to keep working on their nuclear weapons that's going to further antagonize the united states and then peace is going to is going to become even going to become even more difficult to forge now. so they're coming here in the there's a lot at stake now having said that donald trump has also said that this is the first step in a long process and i think that's what we're going to see here they're very unlikely to walk out of this with with one deal that settles all the differences it's more likely to be the first step as i said in a long process a tit for tat where north korea maybe agrees to slowly denuclearizing and the united states in turn agreed to slowly lift sanctions and it's all a matter of trust the kim regime of course needs the securities from the united
3:05 pm
states and. security guarantees to keep it in power and the united states of course they want they need to they need to build trust with the north korean regime that they are actually going to go ahead and denuclearized because a deal like that has been has been struck in the past and then north korea backtracked on it so. very difficult situation here in singapore matt. thanks for keeping an eye on whether the ball will get rolling in singapore between trump control. our at that summit has overshadowed the conclusion of the g seven meeting in canada but there was an unusually acrimonious and to the annual event the brings together leaders of seven industrialized democracies after two days of tense talks all seven signed a final communique a seemingly found agreement on the need for rules based trade but then president trump withdrew his country's endorsement you guessed it with tweets it's the first
3:06 pm
time a g seven gathering has ended without a joint statement but despite the very visible signs of discord the u.s. president actually proclaimed the gathering a success let's listen. it was not contentious what was strong was the language that this cannot go on but the relationships are very good whether it be president mccrone or or with justin we have just a really good job i think the relationships were outstanding. right a bit more on the g. seven summit we are joined by tell us there are political correspondent yet thomas we're hearing could be contradictory messages from trump you know a lot of praise in that last you know video clip and then a really acrimonious tone in his tweet what sort of sent him going in the other direction both the communique in that communique they agreed for example in free.
3:07 pm
trade they had agreed to to modernize the world trade organization so they had been able to to agree on certain elements then the canadian leader just include ok a press conference which didn't like and that was the reason why he gave that tweets and he produced a tweet that we just read there and let's listen to what trudeau himself had to say which was then what made trump change his mind so radically. i highlighted directly to the president that canadians did not take it lightly that the united states has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry particularly would not take lightly the fact that it's based on a national security reason that it's kind of insulting. kind of insulting is this kind of disarray this you know speaking out of both sides
3:08 pm
coming from trump showing that this forum is might be falling apart i mean is he just not prepared to stick to anybody's script but it's a powerful symbol they have been already very powerful symbol before but this is another powerful symbol that donald trump does not mind going in a different direction when it comes to his main his most important that's what that was something absolutely evident here at the g. seven and we've also seen that from some of the reactions that have come from the remaining g. six they say we have to stick together as a group of six even though the united states might go in a community different direction so i can see this particular problem at the end of the g. seven the fact there was a communique and there wasn't a communique at least from those that it was a sign that he's willing again to make sure that this america. is and remains his most important goal in office or at let's hold the thought of the six on one dynamic at this summit let's see just how tense this meeting could get a revealing photo published by the german government shows this shows chancellor
3:09 pm
angela merkel in a surprisingly imposing position leading into war trump this photo went viral on social media it was put up on the screen it was one of the most popular posts ever on the chancellor's instagram with over forty thousand likes on this picture was you know also a pretty big hit elsewhere on social media on twitter some users like one that we're about to pick out here said it there is no better way to sum up the current global situation than this dynamic you see right here but there were actually some other pictures doing the rounds of almost the exact same situation the same gathering of leaders in the same room but from different perspectives this one here shows a manual not kong at the center of things calling the shots for all these leaders and you have another one where trump is sort of close to the middle of the. things this one was put out by his crew it shows him surrounded by smiling faces he's the center of attention it's all making nice thomas these pictures that are
3:10 pm
almost the same situation probably take with a moments of each other telling very different stories. what are we to draw what conclusions we should draw is this just showing that this was a gathering where things were intense but we're not really sure who was taking the lead well the fact that there were different photos with different perspectives probably just shows the fact that the g seven as a whole was a reunion of countries with very different perspectives as well and you can clearly see that from a different picture if we specifically talk about the picture that was posted by the german government it's such a nice seems to show in a very strong position saying probably that she has had enough of all these differences and i also think it's important that it was published maybe not by and independent agency but by the german government itself and this is again a very powerful picture one that has been commented as yourself said on social media which seems to reveal all these big differences that we're seeing between the
3:11 pm
united states and the other countries involved in this is a very honest almost provocative stance that germany takes their own reactions more broadly to the summit which is just about to be wrapped up is this end of the summit with with trump leaving in some acrimony going to overshadow the entire summit or are there you know positive to draw from from the summit as well when you when you look in three or four or five years back at this summit you will probably remember exactly this what we're talking about now the fact that with these different photos the fact there was a communique that they had agreed and then didn't agree this will be clearly what people will remember of this summit there were maybe a few important points the fact that the g. six has still had they want to stick together the other six countries and that has been obviously the biggest reaction he has so far the fact that countries like germany have said that they want to stick to this communique and that the two donald trump's american donald trump's reaction will be to try and focus on
3:12 pm
a more united europe now that's easier said than done there are problems in europe to have that united stance but at least that's a stance the german politicians are clearly willing to to at least focus on let's see if there's some follow through thank you very much it was a pleasure to hear. well the men's final of the french open tournaments is underway with austrian dominic tina facing what could be the biggest challenge in sports beating rafael nadal on clay in paris doll is going after his eleventh french open title but he's wary team is the only player to have beaten him on clay in the past two years. horrid meanwhile on the women's side saturday's win by zero on a holiday was the first for the romanian in three tries in the french open final came from a set down to defeat american sloane stephens. wonderful
