between u.s. president donald trump and north korea's supreme leader kim jong un and singapore are in full swing as in trump met singapore's prime minister at b.c. and known as a working lunch if tomorrow's event goes ahead it will be the first time a sitting u.s. president has ever matts a north korean leader mr trump has said that he will know within the first few minutes when a deal with the north is possible u.s. secretary of state might 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 sure 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. w.'s alexander phenomena was not my comparison briefing
4:03 pm
she joins us from singapore life welcome alexandra so what did the secretary of state say about the progress of preliminary talks. well pump air sounded quite optimistic about the talks he said the progress has been made we are learning that the discussions between the north korea have moved more quickly than expected and he also said that the north koreans have demonstrated their willingness to their new clara's ation and that all of that is seen here as a very positive sign hoping also sets that the trump administration is willing to guarantee the key regime unique security assurances and that is of course some think that the north korean regime is very interested in however pompeo didn't want to talk about if that means that that the you ass is willing to guarantee that it's
4:04 pm
not going to attack it or topple it over we are talking here about a possible reduction of the number of u.s. troops in south korea so my saying that the end game is complete denuclearize station tell us more about the markers that the u.s. setting out. well for the you asked the ultimate goal is to complete the nuclear is ation of north korea of course and that has to be irreversible and verifiable that's a very important point for the trump administration and pompeo said that the u.s. is ready and capable of establishing system a robust system for verification however we have to say that in the past it has been the key issue the key problem and experts here and in the us remind quite skeptical that it really will be possible they argue that the north koreans always promised to give up their nuclear weapons program they've promised and then they
4:05 pm
play today usual game from is making promises extracting concessions and that's not giving up their nuclear weapons program so what's at stake for the north. tomorrow . well i think that for him it is a huge p.r. success p.r. win p.r. victory to be here in the first place to meet the u.s. president he can say let's look i'm meeting with donald trump he's. me as equal because we have to vello nuclear weapons so i assume that will be his message to his own people the north korean regime is of course also interested in getting security guarantees because it's main goal is to survive and they also are very interested in getting sanctions relief because they want to the economy on
4:06 pm
some phenomenon singapore thank you. you heard from alexandra to stop the program t w will be on the ground in singapore for the whole of historic process on to other news now on the prospect of a peace deal for the korean peninsula is raising hopes that families dividing by divided by the korean war could be reunited in our next report from boston heartache we meet a south korean man who thought his older brother had been killed during the war until a letter smuggled to him from the north proved otherwise. known a few old photographs and a couple of letters that the only proved one sign has that he has relatives somewhere in north korea and it would put them in danger to show their faces on television. his older brother sign tells me fought for south korea in 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
4:07 pm
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 chang sign happy and sad at the same time. when i saw the photo i could tell they were my brother but 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 of relations between north and south and the upcoming summit he might finally get the chance to meet his relatives. without moving as i get older my desire to meet them is growing stronger i want to get to know that side of my family now with the summer no seems more likely we'll
4:08 pm
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. people read through the b. there's a. chance china 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 il himself is in the t.v. . always seems 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. convinced that it was.
4:09 pm
the inner korean summit changed many people's opinions about him. but that doesn't change the fact that it is oppressive communist regime the young. parking lot. is the biggest issue during the us meeting as a korean i have the impression that the will to give up the weapon to say i hope the u.s. or to mean something to prove. good agreements. small . i expect somebody. based on the inner strength somebody a few weeks ago i would like to hear something great such as a declaration to end the korean war. which has. sometimes turned sign and his wife come to the national cemetery in seoul to find
4:10 pm
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. was his home they say they hope that maybe one day his children in north korea can come here to. offer 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 this follows his refusal to accept the boat despite the rescue being coordinated by the italian coast guard also refused to let the boat dock accusing italy of violating international norms by turning the votes away in the first place doctors without borders has stuff on board the aquarius the medical charity says migrants are aware of the diplomatic standoff. after surviving the deadly mediterranean waters six hundred thirty people onboard
4:11 pm
this rescue ship are caught in a diplomatic route many of them are unaccompanied minors. the aquarius is stuck at sea between is li and malta after both countries close their ports to the vessel and refuse to take in the migrants who are on board on sunday italian authorities stopped the ship from docking in sicily saying it should head tomato instead. italy's new interior minister and leader of the far right likud party mathias saw the need tweeted that the country would no longer accept what he calls clandestine immigration he later said that malta and the rest of the e.u. were failing to comply with international obligations. i very made on me that i'm ships from german n.g.o.s or those with british dutch or spanish flags in the mediterranean which passed without stopping and then arrive in italy that's something i will not tolerate for very long and this standoff is the first display
4:12 pm
it is the least tougher stance on immigration policy under its new populist government for its part has reiterated the ship isn't its responsibility on monday the united nations refugee agency and the european union urged both parties to find a swift solution. for the commission there is first and foremost it's humanitarian imperative we are talking about people the priority of both the talian and most these authorities should be ensuring these people receive the care they need spain has vowed to end the deadlock and allow the bill to dock after their odyssey the people on board the aquarius might have finally found a safe haven. i turned some of the other stories making news around well three thousand people have rallied in the romanian capital progress to protest against
4:13 pm
moves by the government to just must to dismiss the country's chief anticorruption crossed into his demonstration comes a day after supporters of the center left government marched against alleged abuses by the anti corruption agency. more than a hundred people were arrested in vietnam we can't protesting a draft law that could grant chinese companies lengthy leases to operate in special economic zones relations between vietnam and. i have coped over disputed territory in the south china sea. but the fallout from the weekend's at g. seven summit in canada for a meeting of the world's leading industrial nations unravelled after president trump withdrew u.s. support for the final joint communique in a rare one to want t.v. interview german chancellor angela merkel has now given her take on the events describing the president's snub as sobering and a bit depressing color taking on new u.s. trade tariffs she said that germany would not be taken for
4:14 pm
a ride it was the image from the g. seven summit in canada that had everyone talking what had 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
4:15 pm
reprisals the chancellor didn't hold back on why germany and the e.u. should apply retaliatory tariffs. we have prepared our countermeasures against the tariffs that the us president placed on and i retaliate treat tariffs. 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 is especially means that we in
4:16 pm
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. so fears of a trade war continue to grow a better result in business asked here but the bad news there not a surprise at all phil after that we can g seven shock the trump set around the globe although investors are starting to get used to this sort of behavior that's mirrored on global financial markets this monday but that doesn't mean this dispute or get even uglier germany doesn't see a quick fix to the trade feud. hit us with terrorists and we'll hit you back that was germany's response to washington's decision to impose a twenty five percent levy on new steel imports. refusing to be raffled the u.s. has already announced its next line of attack cars imported from the e.u.
4:17 pm
is traded by its or peter navarro had this to say on fox news. germany has gone autos four times higher than our share of. german imports here and they sell us three times as many cars as we sell so on the issue alone we have allies strategically but when it comes to these trade disputes these allies basically you're robbing us blind the president is not going to put up with that some ways the relationship really that imbalanced let's take a look at the numbers the u.s. taxes e.u. car imports are two point five percent the e.u. on the other hand imposes ten percent on u.s. imports so quite a difference there but that's not the whole story when it comes to s.u.v.s the united states imposes a twenty five percent tax the e.u. on the other hand just ten percent. still some experts say the
4:18 pm
e.u. would be better off addressing american concerns than escalating the spots. so why not cut them from the content. and i think such a strategy of cooperation could bring more because then president of the united states can go to the his voters and say well. this was a good deal for the united states. but within the e.u. the mood seems to be more combative harley davidson motorcycles are just one item on the list of the u.s. products the e.u. has voted to tax. and frankfurt correspondence on the line. to see you both let's start with you how shocked was asia about seven surprise. well probably not as shocked as you are open to canada the markets in asia well up
4:19 pm
today with analysts empathizing with trump and his defensive motives but investors are wary of course of the all of the unfinished this is that was left behind at the table at the g seven and what the what that me due to the markets in the near future a lot of unfinished business general european markets that phase the the but could there be caught trouble down the road indeed european stocks broadly in green territory across most sectors but if you zoom in and on the share prices of european carmakers like diane are in fights violent you'll see a lot more red and it just so happens that some internal troubles in those companies combined with the news of a looming tariff of twenty five percent on car imports to create the perfect storm now european europe's carmakers have been trying to head off these tariffs by saying they already have a large amount of many of them already have large manufacturing facilities in the
4:20 pm
u.s. and as such already create thousands of jobs but we have a situation where the white house isn't really content with having foreign carmakers simply assemble cars that within you are on u.s. soil rather they want the content of those called those cars to be american made as well and such a secure more jobs but fun fact that it's american carmakers don't also sold they rely on american american parts as well in fact only tesla is one hundred percent made as such this is a regime that could backfire as well on american carmakers exactly and to know i can see you're in red today which paints the picture for us on the markets what about politically though the fact trumps pull out came in a tweet was no surprise for us but depressing for the german chancellor i've heard who has proved otherwise to be an effective no nonsense negotiator. he have a good i have and and yes
4:21 pm
a good ear angle americal did say that and this is not of course a tearful situation for her to be and she tries to help europe while a response not she already said that's a counter measures to the steel and aluminum tariffs will be put in place but of course the car import tariffs present a different challenge in our cars are germany's most important export it's the most traded product in the world as such the margin of error for angela merkel here is really quite narrow putting up counterterrorists is probably not the most productive way for her to go at the same time lowering the tariffs in the same way the chinese did could be construed as a political climb down so her job just doesn't get any easier from here ok any car trouble though is further down the track and drain the markets are more focused on what's coming up right now and it's the central banks that have caught their attention this week at least yes that's right this is disputing that the fed
4:22 pm
interest rates are going to be lifted this week and the ego with that information to make some plans for the future the e.c.b. is also going to be on their minds as investors are going to take a look and wait and see what policyholders are going to plan for the near future for that as well and of course the historic meeting between trump and can joe. that's right it's all eyes on singapore on this meeting and the possible potential outcome of the denuclearization talks and this is not terribly concerned about the impact of these talks on the markets it will bit little bit very little impact in fact but the optimistic on what potential challenges as well as opportunities that these talks are going to be given the fact that this is the start of hopefully what seems to be continuing talks between the two countries quick question is frank
4:23 pm
bracing for more surprises yes but the question is from where with the summits and the central bank decisions on north korea their money is mostly on north korea genelle doing a lot on thank you very much for your analysis from frankfurt and draft in singapore a meeting in berlin today aims to revive efforts to find a political solution to the conflict in eastern ukraine feel that thank you is this is a german foreign minister who mass hosting his counterparts from ukraine russia and france as part of the normandy group top of the agenda is a plan to create a un peacekeeping force for the region amid a recent upsurge in fighting february twenty fifteen and there were a few smiles around the negotiating table in the bill the russian capital minsk weeks of devastating fighting that sealed the fate of the first negotiated truce to the war in eastern ukraine this new agreement was meant to finally bring about the
4:24 pm
last thing ceasefire one that would pave the way for a political solution. instead the shooting has barely stopped even for a day since then the front line hasn't shifted but the battles continue ukrainian government troops and pro russian separatists trade blame over who fired first. poesy observers are left to catalog cease fire violations but a powerless to stop them. in ukraine's capital kiev men in uniform are a common sight these days and nowhere more so than at the city's central station many of them are heading back to the front line. but what do people him make of the chances for peace did they think u.n. peacekeepers could make a difference. this just talks like these take place but they just say the same things over and over
4:25 pm
nothing ever changes whatever happens in europe it doesn't help us here we need to sort out their own country by itself so no one's going to solve this for us i'm from donetsk myself i know the situation from the inside when it all started i was committed to people but eventually listen to each other that this would end as time goes on i'm going on a pessimistic i have serious doubts of the conflict will end anytime soon. we need to liberate out territory this is war and diplomacy alone won't resolve this. once these soldiers reach their positions along the don bus front line there's often just a few hundred meters dividing them from pro russian separatists forces on the un peacekeepers could it's hoped make it that much harder for either side to pull the trigger but before that can happen kiev and moscow need to agree on the scope of the un mission so far russia says it's only willing to support a small un contingent posted on the current front line ukraine its western allies
4:26 pm
want to far bigger mission to include all separatist held territory. this train is headed for content in africa seven hundred kilometers to be and hard up against the front line many of its passengers are soldiers returning to their. postings. as the diplomat spreads me to berlin hearing here there's little optimism that this round of talks can succeed with previous ones the failed with no side giving any indication it's willing to make the first move or agree to painful compromises. that summers in singapore where much of the excitement is over how donald trump and kim jong un will get on one side in a room together one of them look alikes around him to go by there is absolutely nothing to worry about. the big bromance in singapore in the run up to the historic meeting between trump and kim these two men are
4:27 pm
getting along great. and they get a lot of good things will come from this talk that it's going to be better for everybody better for his nation a book by its about this meeting and it's going to come out good for the rest of the world and this trump is already practicing getting to the meat of the issue. after the g. seven disaster in canada the mood here is good too good to be true these imitators are the spitting image is of the leaders meeting in singapore and they have some creative solutions to the problems facing the u.s. and north korea so i'm going to take some of this crap back to go through with me. i think we can we can solve the foreign and probably north korea with a graduating yet many in the crowd are fooled failing to notice teams australian accent and we can't believe dating noise safety here i question the u.s. president cannot continue to be here so why impress their goal with no security
4:28 pm
there. however the summit in singapore turns out the meeting of these two minds is already a success. a lovely thing you're watching news still to come where in ramadan joining which muslims are not allowed to eat during daylight hours on the streets of old delhi detail be found all sorts of tasty treats for me to enjoy come sunset. and more often i'm so well dears i'm business on the way. how do germans came together one nation. frederick
4:29 pm
and the empress. tomorrow in shock defeat to the enemy only shall never see one another again with a rebellion against austria in terms of pressure on interest groups and super cool . the germans. in forty five minutes. singapore has set the stage for the historic meeting between us president trump and north korea's dictator kim jong il but can the to strike a deal denuclearization and peace on the korean peninsula really on the cards or is this all just a glorified photo op to find out join our full coverage of the summit from singapore here on the show be. hijacking the news. where i go from the news is being hijacked journalism itself has become a scripted reality show it's not just good versus evil us versus them why
4:30 pm
and why. in countries like russia china churchy people are told is that it's enough and if you're a journalist there and you try to get beyond that you are facing scare tactics intimidation. and i wonder is that where we're heading as well. my responsibility as a journalist is to get beyond the smoking mirrors is going just about the premier and balance or being neutral it's about being truthful. when he was part of golf and i were getting the. business to deal. live from above and i'm phil gayle the top stories at this hour u.s. president donald trump house about singapore's prime minister at least in the run
4:31 pm
up to he's a president at summit but north korean leader kim jong struck scribes of tuesday's meeting in the city state as one time shot at peace. with german chancellor angela merkel described as interims withdrawal from the weekend's g. seven joint statement a sobering saying not the european union retaliating against us. i'm a study four people have been killed and dozens more wounded in attacks across afghanistan health officials say at least thirteen were killed by a suicide bomb outside a ministry building in the capital kabul women and children on board to be amongst that the surge in violence comes a day before the start of a unilateral government ceasefire with the taliban. after some form president hamid karzai has been speaking to g.w. news about the three day cease fire he says he's hopeful that it will turn into a long term peace process we we need.
4:32 pm
we need departing to come to an end and we very much hope that the current even if it is a short one who will lead to a peace process which is to force one a dialogue between afghanistan and intra afghan dialogue in which the afghans talk among them to loose and think of a solution internally for us to come together for peace and stability the second one the second fault is in that range went with the region backed by the international community so interference in afghanistan so afghanistan and the region suspicion of a neighbor especially pakistan begin to live in peace and trust afterwards for that. i believe very strongly and i recommend that the government of germany who has already held three conferences sort of get
4:33 pm
a sudden bone think offer fort bourne conference. in which the afghans. are coming together where the afghans and our region will give guarantees to one another far from it are friends of stability which will be endorsed equally also by the international community according to reports just today fifteen policemen were killed by the taliban in condos don't you think that this ceasefire or even a fourth conference spawn conference in germany might be just a dream. well not not i condemn the killing of the police and i call it the taliban and on the government of afghanistan not to engage in any military activity because that will not take us to peace never we have seen it military activity will not lead to peace and and militancy is not going to take us to peace but die an oak
4:34 pm
plant interaction a formidable positive one between us and the international community through the good offices of germany will certainly lead us to where we want which is peace. something to get your mouth watering or in ramadan the holy month of season muslims around the world fast during daylight hours but when sunset comes there is a whole array of tasty treats to break the fast and nowhere is that show a famous street markets a whole deli w. has been to sample a delights. old deli always full of life it never fails to kick your senses into high gear. it's an area many see is the heart of delhi's sumptuous food culture this can make it tricky for those fasting in observance of islams holy month known as ramzan here avoiding popular treats

now the football world cup begins in russia on thursday but hooliganism from russian football fans is casting a long shadow chris huntington from t w sport is here to tell us well welcome chris thank you this has been a big problem for russia for some time yes it started back in the one nine hundred ninety s. when the soviet union collapsed says it has become a way of life in some cases even militaristic we have a report for you phil let's take a look. first hiding for the sake of fighting this is the hooligan seen in russia when they were in the world cup. in these fights a pure adrenalin it's a rush everyone wants to prove that they're the strongest if they don't know they step in and that's exactly what happened in must say at the twenty sixteen european championship violence broke out between russian hooligans and england fans it wasn't always like this the soviet union did not have a major problem with hand violence but its collapse almost thirty years ago left
4:44 pm
the perfect breeding ground for a hooligan seen in russia. russia will find culture started with nineteen nineties when there was a huge vacuum of the government when they could do whatever they wanted at the stadium and government just turned a blind eye or. nowadays it's about competition and ana it's almost it's own sport russian hooligans don't drink alcohol they train but russia is not the only country with a hooligan problem just weeks ago at the champions league semifinal clashes erupted between diehard liverpool and roma fans. russia says it is taking strong measures to avoid violent scenes at the world cup both inside and outside the stadiums these days we see on the president a crackdown on trust on files like at six o'clock they knock your door saying you have no we came just for you know four of the four a talk to tell you what should
4:45 pm
