and get america describes president trump's withdrawal from the weekend's g seven joint statement as sobering and reiterates the european union's determination to retaliate against u.s. tariffs. i'm phil gale welcome to the program. preparations for tuesday's historic summit between u.s. president donald trump and north korea's supreme leader kim jong un in singapore are in full swing president trump has met with singapore's prime minister at least scieno at a working lunch if tomorrow's event happens it will be the first time a sitting u.s. president has ever met with a north korean leader mr trump has said that he will know within the first minutes of the meeting whether a deal with north korea will be possible u.s. secretary of state mike pump air has been spelling out u.s.
preconditions. in light of how many flimsy agreements the united states has made in previous years this president will assure ensure that no potential agreement will fail to adequately address the north korean threat the ultimate objective we seek from diplomacy with north korea has not changed the complete verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the korean peninsula is the only outcome that the united states will accept the w.c. i was on the phone number was about to briefing with secretary of state mike pump aoe she joins us live from singapore welcome sound so what did the your secretary say about the progress of the preliminary talks while pumping you know was quite optimistic about the. progress has been met made that the north koreans have demonstrated their willingness to the identical or is a chanel country he also said that he's hopeful that the summit to morrow could set
conditions for future talks and what i phone so particular interesting was the fact that u.s. secretary of state pale said that the u.s. that the administration will take action to all for north koreans to provide north koreans with unique security assurances something that has not to be done before as he said something that goes beyond what previous u.s. administrations were ready to offer however pompeo didn't want to talk whether it means that the u.s. is ready to talk about reducing the number of its troops in south korea or whether the u.s. is willing to say that it's not going to attack or topple the north korean regime so my pump i have said that the ultimate objective is complete denuclearization tell us more about the have the u.s. preconditions. yes you are right so the complete and if there is
a shred of north korea is the long term goal and it has to be irreversible and rifle with a rifle and that is a key issue for you as secretary of state pompei all he said that you asked it's going to establish rubber star system of verification but that's been a key issue before and the huge problem because regardless the fact that north korea and were ready to promise that they never kept those promises and that's why many u.s. experts we talked to in the u.s. . remain quite skeptical let's have a listen. their meeting be more than a photo op a breakthrough or a disaster terms decision to hold the summit called friends and foes off guard and blindsided his own aides proving once again how unpredictable this us president is it is good that this summit is taking place says mark to cola
a former state department official and an expert on korea to cola sees it as a chance for diplomacy and things it is promising that president trump suggested this could be the start of a longer process takes the pressure off more than one meeting because if you meet at all about one meeting the chances of a failure would be would be too serious i think being a believe things for future meetings having a process start up is going to be good for everybody. trump card in needs his efforts with south korea japan and china but ultimately he relies on himself president says he's a monster deal maker and doesn't need much preparation and extremely unusual approach towards such difficult talks trumps all for sanctions relief and economic growth in return put it in you clear is ation of north korea but is that enough. we've try it before says bruce clinger the former cia deputy did vision chief for
korea clean there doesn't trust the regime in pyongyang. and we've had eight international agreements in the past with north korea where they first promise never to build nuclear weapons and then promise to give up the weapons or promise never to build in the first place and all have failed we're we're hopeful that this time will be different but i think we do have to be pragmatic about. says the summit is about building a relationship with him but he also promises to walk out of the meeting if it's not food for the truth is this is a gamble and no one knows how it's going to turn out. as well as understand naaman in singapore alexandra what is at stake for north korea. i think that for the north korean regime is is it is a huge p.r. victory to be here or to have this summit in singapore now north korean leader kim jong un can say well look we are meeting with u.s. presidents donald trump the u.s.
is treating us as equals and that's because we have to fill up the nuclear weapons so that's will be here message to his domestic audience for north korea and generally speaking for the north koreans it is very important to get sanctions relief so they can boost the economy and of course for the regime it is very important to gap security guarantees from the u.s. government alexander phenomena in singapore thank you. now spain has offered to take in more than six hundred people who have been stranded on board a rescue ship in the mediterranean for more than a day after first italy and then mult so close their ports to the vessel accuses italy of violating international norms by refusing to allow the boat to dock even though the italian coast guard coordinated the rescue doctors without borders has staff on board and tweeted a video they say shows some of the women praying the charity says migrants on the

ravelled after president trump withdrew u.s. support for a g seven joint communiqué german chancellor i get america has now given her take on events in a rare wall of want t.v. interview she describes the president's decision as sobering and a bit depressing commenting on the u.s. threats of trade tariffs the chancellor said germany would not be taken for a ride it was the image from the g seven summits in canada that tend everyone talking boards have the german chancellor been saying to the u.s. president what was she thinking and what was he thinking that photo was taken before donald trump withdrew his support for the g seven joint statement on international trade and it seems that decision has changed everything. in an 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. this despite trump's threats of reprisals the chancellor didn't hold back on why germany and the e.u. should apply retaliatory tariffs. of truth 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. oh. 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
