shortly first let us turn to one of the issues that appeals not to have had such a significant presence at this meeting the issue of human rights in north korea been very much overshadowed by the summit but remains a highly controversial on all found from human rights group amnesty international specializes on north korea and joins us from the south korean capital so welcome to day w m a stands national has lobbied president to try to press for human rights issues to be included in discussions with the north what do you make of what you heard. well if any human rights have been covered in the conversation it has not been reflected in any of the documents and definitely not in the declaration which was rather sparse in terms of substance well president trump mentioned in his press conference after the. release in the declaration that
11:04 am
he did discuss human rights with kim jong il and unfortunately he failed to mention what exactly he has covered so we wish that he had covered the main issues that we have raised with him made him namely the detention facilities prison camps and also the fact that north koreans have been like cut off from the outside world in terms of the freedom of movement and freedom of information so i hope that he would elaborate more on what he has talked to john about in some documents of possible. is it your thought that these are just this is just not a high enough priority for either or both of these governments well that was disappointing but in some sense it was predictable and understandable i think like from the very start the main objective of.
11:05 am
summit was at the nuclear isolation so like something like human rights watch if you like some like humans rights could have the potential to make that antagonized if not and the right way but that said i think certain issues could be dealt with more easily and some harder issues can be left later so i hope at least he could deal with for example the right to health and food off the citizens because even though that's the crisis years have passed it's still very difficult for humanitarian organizations to operate in north korea they're not given access to freely distribute their materials and also are not allowed to have free i'm monitoring so i think that would be something to start with early and also some other issues such as freedom of communications i think not korea is developing very
11:06 am
quickly in terms of telecommunications but most of its people are not able to access the internet or to make phone calls to the outside world and that shouldn't be the case so i think those are things that can get that chunk of enjoyment. in singapore thank you. and the prospect of a peace deal for the korean peninsula is raising hopes that families divided by the korean war could be reunited next report we meet a south korean man who thought his older brother had died during the war until the letter smuggled to him from the north proved otherwise a few old photographs and a couple of letters that's 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 to unsign tells me fought for south korea in the korean war almost seven decades ago chunks of bark was taken
11:07 am
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 couldn't tell the world. 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 up the letter with but he left behind a family of his own to sign 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 i want to get to
11:08 am
know that side of my family now with the summer no one 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. could be there's a. chance time 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 and self. 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. to do was. turn
11:09 am
me. into a korean summit changed many people's opinions about him. but that doesn't change the fact that he doesn't dictate it oppressive communist regimes the young and. even picking what. is the biggest issue during the meeting as a korean i have the impression that he has the will to give up the weapon to say i hope the u.s. or summit to prove. good agreement just. models . they expect something real positive based on the interference from 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.
