a popular with everyone. what is a decision day for on which nations will host the twenty twenty six soccer world cup as the world prepares for this year's event a joint bid from the united states canada and mexico goes up against an offering from five time bidders morocco. i'm happy and welcome to the program north korea has praised the summit between kim jong un and donald trump as a resoundingly success the north state media framed tuesday's summit as a win for pyongyang as a list of the concessions made by president trump including his pledge to end joint south korean military exercises critics are pointing to the lack of detail in the one page agreement signed by both leaders and that it contains no mention of
9:02 am
washington's demand for a complete verifiable and irreversible decon gries ation of the north. nuclear weapons we never even discussed the other in an interview with the a.b.c. news network following the talks in singapore u.s. president donald trump said it was a big day for the world he also announced that he will freeze military war games with south korea and i'm doing something that i wanted to do from the beginning we stop playing those war games a cost us a fortune you know we're spending a fortune every number of months we're doing war games with south korea and i said what's this costing we're flying planes in from guam and we're bombing empty mountains for practice and i said i want to stop that i will stop that and i think it's very provocative especially george since we're getting along in the us we're in the process of signing sceptics because you talk about pulling troops out u.s. troops. but we're not going to play the war games. the north has longer protected
9:03 am
the drills calling them a security threat in the first reaction since the talks pyongyang's official state news agency released a statement saying that it was urgent for north korea and the u.s. to hold irritating and hostile military actions against each other. trump has agreed on a step by step denuclearization process by the north in return for u.s. concessions north korea may have pledged to dismantle its nuclear arsenal the questions still remain as to how and when this will be achieved and verified. north korea's state media also confirmed the tramp and cam have both accepted mutual invitations to visit washington and pyongyang. to discuss this further let's bring in correspondent jason strother in seoul jason good to see the first concession coming from trump at the summit it appears to have caught the u.s.
9:04 am
military officials and a south korean government off guard though how did this announcement go down in seoul. right i think everyone has been caught. by surprise by trump's remarks let alone the united states forces korea which stations nearly thirty thousand american soldiers here however on the streets let's say it's more of a mixed bag there are certainly south koreans who feel that the. united states forces here the annual exercises are sort of a a a lynchpin of the republic of korea u.s. alliance but there are also many south koreans who would be very glad to see the united states gale down any sort of military maneuvers here. it is correct that the exercises are provocative and north korea uses those
9:05 am
maneuvers to justify launching missiles making threats to turn soul into a sea of fire threatening to strike the united states with intercontinental ballistic missiles but again this has called people by surprise here and i think we can expect negotiations between the u.s. and south korea to engage over this jason you mentioned the nearly thirty thousand u.s. troops in south korea trump has left open the possibility of bringing them home from south korea without specifying a timeframe or whether that would even happen what has the reaction in south korea been to that. right well i mean ever since trump was on the campaign trail he had threatened to bring american soldiers home from south korea and even yesterday during his post summit press conference he kind of threw south korea under the bus saying again making this claim that the south doesn't financially
9:06 am
support american forces here to the degree that it should be some debate can be made about that. again here in south korea. there are mixed feelings to the u.s. military let's say for the elder generations who remember how united states came to south korea's rescue during the korean war and health fightback north korea as well as china. those that generation of south koreans would be very horrified to see american soldiers leave but for a younger generations who would prefer better relations with north korea and also the sense that there is an occupying foreign army in their country some people would not be sad at all to see u.s. soldiers go home correspondent jason strother in seoul thank you very much thank you. an orthodox approach to diplomacy has become

a defining feature of his presidency and was on display in singapore federica vaio new delhi social media desk joins us now to talk about a move that went viral federica it seems trump brought his entertainment background to the summit and yes savvy he did it among the many tactics that trump rolled out at that summit there was this four minute long hollywood style movie trailer and trump showed it to kim on his i pad during their summit and it's essentially it is over the top sales video that lays out the importance of a kid's this engine and also the potential benefits of denuclearization but we have a clip of that video let's take a look. the story. became one. by. one. my story. when i presented one that never. what it really. shows you you should.

9:09 am
that this looks like a scene from a from a science movie ethics from a science fiction movie. on the other hand the video was also shown to reporters in singapore ahead of the press conference and it was turning korean first and many of them were scratching their heads like thinking that they were being shown some kind of north korean propaganda and we have a tweet here from one of the journalists who was there waiting for that press conference who says they are playing a propaganda video before trump press are not kidding what is happening and then the video looked to english and that's when reporters realized this was actually produced by the white house. means that and we've seen a lot of people online criticizing it. thinking this is a little bit weird and it is a bizarre tactic however and as we mentioned before president trump has a background in. the show business and also interestingly the father of kim kim jong il he was a massive movie fun he collected thousands of films so maybe it isn't as crazy as
9:10 am
it sounds maybe it is playing a bit of a family history a new tactic in terms of persuasion federico baggio from the social media thank you very much and not so subtle message of that movie was a shift to a free market could make north korea prosperous but in a small way that's already happened more and business in a few minutes now and the other stories making news around the world and yemen troops backed by a saudi led coalition have launched an attack on the main port city of it's seen as a kid battlefront and possible turning point and yemen's three year civil war between the countries saudi backed government and iran allied the rebels but aid groups warn the whole data assault risks huge civilian casualties. more than six hundred migrants are headed to spain by boat after being stranded for days in the mediterranean spain offered to take them in on monday and they're expected to
