that the subnets to morrow will set the conditions for future talks but what he also said in this briefing and i found it quite interesting was that you asked is ready willing to provide the north korean regime with the unique security assurances with something that is to friends to watch has been offered before by previous administrations and that's quite interesting it will be interesting whenever we are talking to see whether we are talking here about your command which the u.s. might be ready to say that they're not going to attack the north korean regime or to topple the regime or whatever we are going to see any concessions going in this direction that the u.s. might be ready to reduce the number of troops on the korean peninsula in south korea that is actually something that u.s. secretary of state didn't want to talk about it during this briefing just saying
that he wants to negotiate directly with the north korean regime and now it's. press or media ok we heard him say that objective number one is complete denuclearize ation tell us more about the markers the u.s. is setting out. bumpier said that what is the key issue here and has been a key issue before of course is the verification so whatever north korea is committed to do it will be important and that is something that if you asked the trump administration is ready to establish to have a robust system to verify whether the north koreans are really ready to declare is a nation so that's something that is very important and at the same time the u.s. secretary of state also stressed that until such steps are taken do you ass is ready to keep those various heavy sanctions in place and that is of course something that the north korean regime. will be not happy to hear and briefly
what's at stake for the north. i think that for the north koreans is a huge p.r. victory to be here to meet with the u.s. president donald trump because now they can say and addressing it to the domestic audience that look we are meeting with the you asked president and that means that he is treating us as equal but of course what they want what they long goal is to get the sanctions relieved to get economic growth for the country i was on the phone normally in singapore thank you. we'll of course be on the ground throughout this historic meeting if it happens there is still time for anything to happen moving on the prospects of a peace deal for the north korean peninsula is raising hopes that families divided by the korean war could be reunited the next report from bastion hearting we meet
a south korean man who thought his older brother had died during the war until a letter smuggled to him from the north proved otherwise. a few old photographs and a couple of letters that he only proved one sign has that he has relatives somewhere in north korea it would put them in danger to show their faces on television. his older brother and sign tells me fought for south korea and the korean war almost seven decades ago chunks of bach was taken prisoner by the north the family was told he had been killed but then sixty years after seeing his brother for the last time chang sign received a letter from north korea from his brother delivered through a contact in china that was ten years ago it made sense signed happy and sad at the same time. when i saw the photo i could
tell they were my brother you can see how impressive he looks rather than actually i remember him as such a cheerful person. you know. his brother passed away shortly after chang signed got the letter with but he left behind a family of his own. hopes that with thawing relations between north and south and the upcoming summit he might finally get the chance to meet his relatives. with a moment as i get older my desire to meet them is growing stronger and i want to get to know that side of my family now with the summer no seems more likely we'll have a chance to meet which i'm still not sure if i should trust the politicians but i just can't help but hope it will finally have here they're. going to be there. and chant sign isn't the only one in south korea getting his hopes up. many here
believe that the summit will produce a positive outcome maybe even paving the way for a peace treaty to finally end the korean war sixty five years after the last shot was fired and more and more south koreans are even changing their mind about north korea's dictator kim jong un and self is in the t.v. . always seem to. get what he said and what he was. probably smarter than i thought so i got the impression he's actually leading the country sort of. invited to do was. turn me. into a korean summit changed many people's opinions about him. but that doesn't change the fact that it is oppressive communist regime. that. is the biggest issue during the meeting as
a korean i have the impression that the will to give up the weapon and say i hope the us all lets me in summit to prove. good agreements. the models. all expect something real positive based on the inner three and somebody a few weeks ago i would like to do something great such as a declaration to end the korean war. so my boss was because. sometimes sign and his wife come to the national cemetery in seoul to find his brother's name on the wall of missing soldiers even though chance the book is no longer missing they don't want his name deleted saul was his home they say they hope that maybe one day his children in north korea can come here to.

unusual move chancellor merkel used to german political talk show to vent her frustration at the way things turned out. i worked hard for a compromise we struggled with it for a long time and then afterwards there was drawn so to speak by a tweet is of course sobering and a bit depressing. and all. despite trump's threats of reprisals the chancellor didn't hold back on why germany and the e.u. should apply retaliatory tariffs. of we have prepared our countermeasures against the tariffs that the us president placed an alum in human steel which we consider unlawful under the terms of the w t o. we're not going to let ourselves be taken for a ride we're also going to act. and while defending
the g seven the german leader also took the opportunity to call for a more united europe we have to ask ourselves where we can act on line that of course means new responsibilities for europe and it especially means that we in europe need to be loyal to ourselves angular merkel has never had the easiest of relations with donald trump his decision to disrupt the g seven will only have made things worse. sports fought in formula one how well after are a sebastian fattal's storm to victory at the canadian grand prix the weight now puts him at the top of the driver standings by a single point fettle started the race from pole to have no trouble staying in front of the pack in while a rival lewis hamilton of miss a does hit his nose for the season finishing fifth and germany's fattal picked up out of his third win of the joy first ferrari team
