for and the houseman training at the national committee to address the issue. the leaders of north and south korea have hailed a deal to improve ties in polls to efforts to end nuclear tensions in the region after talks in pyongyang the north kim jong un promised to close the country's main nuclear complex and to shut down a missile launch site if the united states made perceptible moves. day two of south korean president moon jay ins visit to his maverick nor the name became jungle and a breakthrough. after a signing ceremony there were announcements on the north closing a nuclear missile testing site establishing buffer zones between the two koreas and a joint elliptic bid for twenty thirty two it was a more colorful affair the previous evening the concert in honor of the two leaders at pyongyang was granted. followed by
12:08 pm
a lavish banquet and a cheerful exchange of toast it's. visit is the first by a south korean leader to the north in eleven years and top of the proletariat gender reproaching stalled talks with the u.s. on denuclearizing the korean peninsula. bible kendell e discuss advancing the nuclearization with president. has president moon and i build trust with each other our progress towards a peaceful and prosperous korean peninsula will become faster. you wonder not because complete denuclearization and the establishment of peace on the korean peninsula is an important agenda good as it is a completely new resolution there could be various challenges and difficulties however chairman kim jong un and i share trust and friendship and. relations between the two koreas do seem to be improving but real progress in the region will
12:09 pm
depend on convincing the us that the north is serious about getting rid of its nuclear weapons. let's get more from political scientist robert e. kelley from south korea suppose that national university welcome to doubly so happy seen some problems as a piece from pyongyang but was anything of substance achieved. a little bit i think probably the most important thing meaningful is that the north koreans considered inviting inspectors into the country and now it seems like the two facilities they want to comment have inspectors look at already been decommissioned in one way or another and it might not actually get relevant to the north korean program anymore so i'm not sure that that's actually a major concession that's up for debate probably in the next couple weeks we'll see what that means but inspectors are something new right i mean we know the north koreans don't like inspectors foreigners can operate freely in north korea all right so if we get that from them that's actually a pretty good start there's enough to keep the process limping along right donald
12:10 pm
trump said i sent a tweet or two afterwards saying this is sort of a good step so it's still ok but you know there has been movement on the really big issues of nuclear weapons and missiles yeah let's let's look about a little closer so that no there's a great to potentially dismantle its main nuclear site if the united states makes concessions and and makes reciprocal concessions just can't believe the united states will agree to this yeah that's actually a really good question under this president right i mean in the back states is actually were neg done two deals with nuclear states in the past first with libya and now with the iranians on my fire the north koreans i'm not sure just all talk i probably wouldn't. think it's one the reasons why this process is moving so slowly right we don't trust the north koreans and they don't trust us their credibility problems on both sides right and right now we're stuck in that problem right the north koreans want americans to go first and vice versa i think that's one of the reasons why moon went to pyongyang as to force this process along with the north koreans didn't give very much right and now expect trying to give something back so
12:11 pm
we have to go she said between the koreas and apparently warming relations how much of those negotiations how much helping of a relationship between the north and the u.s. . yeah the enter korea negotiations are going pretty well right i mean when jane keeps talking this soft right he's going to he's bring he's got the heads of. conglomerate all this industrials with him and stuff like that and pop stars and everything right i mean when gene is sort of creating this sort of vibe and mood around these negotiations of real progress the problem is of course that south korea has a treaty ally the united states in the american alliance is very popular in south korean public opinion so there's only so far that when gene can go if the americans are resisting and that's really his trick now he wants to keep this rolling along but if the americans are holding back he's really politically constrained at home in korea because he just can't go that far without the u.s. and that's why i think a lot of people were hoping for a little bit more out of this to walk to convince donald trump to come along so all
12:12 pm
not maybe a somewhat naive question how does washington rate god improved relations between the two koreas is that a good thing as far as they can. eat us sort of a big question out there right i mean it's good generally right i mean it's a lot better than we were last year from our war rights and things like that right but there is some concern and there is growing concern certainly on the american side that the north the south koreans are moving too fast that south korea is giving north korea the economic rewards such as investment and tourism other things that are really sort of under center created an unwarranted right that is to say that north korea has really changed that much and so helping north korea's economy isn't necessarily a good thing because that just makes the problem worse right and i think the americans would like to see denuclearization firstly some movement on that before into hurley's interpersonal relations warm too much and that's why you've seen some of this tension between the u.s. and the south koreans in the last couple months very interesting thank you so much for joining us professor robert kelly from national university in south korea.

germany's fragile coalition government is under pressure after chancellor merkel a saturday mastic intelligence chief and that promoted him to a more powerful post and going back all sides of the after old issue partners the social democrats demanded hard scale mass and sacking fellow conservatives backed him to continue the coalition party leaders agreed on martin's fate as a crisis meeting on tuesday but the compromise took many by surprise the deputy leader of the social democrats called the deal at the sastre it's the latest quarrel in a government that has already come close to collapse let's hear from one of the social democrats concerned about that martin's move this is the last claim by the s.p.d. he's a gent secretary-general. said to as some would not have been made deputy minister under an s.p.d. interior minister the minister and it's also important to point out that even the chancellor distanced herself from mass and hosts a whole for bringing martin into his interior ministry looks like another appealed
12:14 pm
to the chancellor and i don't know how that will affect the coalition's internal relations in future the last bit of political correspondent maximally on the kasich joins me now welcome maximilian will come to the s.p.d. in just a it will start with was a hole for muslims direct bosses interior minister and he's been a pain in the chancellor side for some time now and just be holding a press conference what did he say well say over has what we already heard yesterday that the former chief of the domestic intelligence service huntsville mohsen is being removed from that post and is being moved to the interior ministry where the office the minister off the head of and martin will be a deputy minister there he will start as soon as the position of the domestic intelligence chief is refilled and he was praising masa in fact for his loyalty for his integrity and was having high hopes for him also joining his
12:15 pm
ministry so he was setting this as a promotion he did in fact and he was also giving information that they're now looking in the near future for a new position for the domestic intelligence chief but also that there will be a couple of concessions be made to put mohsen within the interior ministry we heard just now from chancellor merkel's junior coalition partners the s.p.d. saying that they would never have promoted mohsen but they did sign off on this decision so what's going on well this is in fact the big renovation that was just made at the conference was able because to bring mohsen into the interior ministry another deputy minister will be. effectively and that deputy minister was a member of the s.p. day so. is making space to bring mohsen on board in his interior ministry by when the moving and s.p.d. deputy minister from his ministry so they could be
12:16 pm
a speedy pace to lose on both counts so he's a thing right but the people looking at this from outside think it's weird how does a troublesome civil servant who stands up and contradicts the chancellor end up being promoted instead of being kicked out well the one thing that we know and that is what's the offer is bringing on the interior minister all he has the backing so they will force the one person one petition in berlin who gives mohsen the backing and who keeps him on board he is the one who is basically defending this controversial political civil servant and what the s.p.d. saw them at the moment is that is that they have quite the the most weakest partner in the coalition agreement and they know if they try to break out of this and that would be new elections they would lose have a break according to the recent polls and i must live here on the course it should thank you so much. to nigeria now on the booming business of worship the country's pentecostal churches are packing in believe us every weekend
12:17 pm
with a message of economic hope in tough times the focus on charismatic pastors and the price tag that comes with regular attendance as worried mainstream christian critics they don't lose a funny for shah reports from author and nigeria's ogun state. a typical sunday for some fourteen million nigerians just to. celebrate to start anything. welcoming teams of people into one of the roughly five hundred pentecostal churches in the country i'm joining a service today in one of these mega churches just outside of lagos it's the third biggest one in nigeria literally the church service today and as you can feel the sharks around the mouth to feed the baby and leave. the service starts all it's rather quietly but people don't stay in their seats for long.
12:18 pm
the pastor calls himself a bishop here and he's celebrated like a stop david asked him a to growth a one hundred fifty million us dollars and many of his followers you're in for that kind of well oh yeah that was prosperity gospel resonates with. those who have no plan that is your. goal this does frustrate you start mission failure is done under. the big donation baskets filled with the belief is the more you give during and after the church service the more you're going. to church there are many more ways to spend money how about only oil sold for five u.s. dollars per bottle this is not to eat it is to put on your hat why. not say it's because. like it's not like you know my. keno for anything
12:19 pm
i want to believe i used the oil swap for you it's cure sickness sees it's because any people are being used by using justice or in pentecostal churches compete for members each promises economic salvation. a solution and people want to believe in them especially in times of hardship. god jesus and that's also the first billboard you see when you and thirty university of lagos francisco is a professor of religious studies he says nigeria is one of the most religious countries in africa but he's concerned about the focus of pentecostal churches is dangerous because. everything revolves around a pastor and then the tendency east to shift you know. the pastoral and. not oh god. the lifestyle of the pastor becomes
12:20 pm
this turned out not out of christ he says people's faith is being exploited and converted into a commercial business the price tag most of these pastors are not there to serve. him says and language question some of the practices of the good the bad food to support themselves that jesus was not paul he's also had the best of these. churches are not trick wired to pay taxes but you don't rise in extreme poverty so politicians want to change that still it's a highly unpopular idea among those who believe the positive changes only possible through their faith and they're going. to sports the result of the champions league soar to germany's first high profile coaches face off. welcome thomas to. liverpool took the lead early on to daniel sturridge before james milner double better advantage from the penalty spot. called one back for perry just before half

time actually and i'm back looks to have snatched a late equaliser but roberto for me no score to sri points for the pull of an injury time where three two the final score. wasn't to say he's only carrying that. plenty of high scoring much as across europe a little messy hard tricks old boss alone a big p.s.v. eindhoven dortmund snatched a close win of a club bruges while shall go on porto shared the spoils monaco lost at home to athletico madrid and got a toss rise so off lokomotiv moscow. visitors would get hot overs not i'm childish reaction to these latest trade tanisha lee united states as rising i mean the latest escalation of the trade war between the world's top two economies the stakes are indeed high china's second highest official described the state of the world as the crossroads between globalization and the globalization that's quite a time for. chinese premier league has urged governments to defend free trade after
12:22 pm
the latest round of tit for tat tariff action between washington and beijing gold also promised to improve conditions for foreign companies in china. it is indeed necessary to cooperate fairly and to maintain the principal rules of multi-lateralism and free trade because no matter how much these rules need to improve only what it offers us is inclusive of the it's progress for hungary civilization if there are issues that we should resolve them through negotiation no unilateral action stands a chance of solving the problems would mean that you see china faces a tough balancing act that has to uphold a multilateralist message decrying washington's protectionism while defending itself against complaints of its own unfair trade practices it's now slap retaliatory duties on sixty billion dollars worth of u.s. products in response to washington's new taxes on two hundred billion dollars worth
12:23 pm
of chinese goods first part u.s. president donald trump appears unmoved he spoke at a news briefing alongside the president of poland. we are the people bank to the world we've been ripped off by china we've been ripped off by excuse me mr president the european union which you're a part of. we've been ripped off by everybody. and i want to protect the american worker the american farmer and the ranchers the companies and we're not being ripped off you will see it's not clear whether the two sides will press on with talks to resolve the dispute meanwhile beijing is running out of u.s. imports to target in contrast the u.s. imports much more from china than the other way around that means it has more room to expand its tariff regime to effectively cover own chinese imports.
