political gains. austrian chancellor sebastian could subpoenaed in good spirits on the second day of an informal meeting of e.u. leaders in salzburg. but the day's agenda of migration is one that has been a thorn in the side of the blocs leadership the twenty eight leaders are looking for new ways to stem the flow of refugees and europe's borders. going into today's talks e.u. official donald had a word of caution. instead of taking political advantage of the situation we should focus on what works and just get on with it we can no longer be divided into those who want to solve the problem of illegal migrant flows and those who want to use it for political gain. at the migration crisis is peak in twenty fifteen more than
12:03 pm
a million migrants entered europe the unprecedented crisis proved a strain on european unity some members rejected the european commission's mandatory migration quotas today's summit will revisit the question of solidarity and how to share the burden created by refugees and migrants inside the block one idea proving controversial is a suggestion countries that don't host refugees should help foot the bill. on the we don't start we are not at the market we're speaking about humans we're not speaking about carpets or goods so i say if we start to begin how much is the price of an immigrant it's a shame for all of us the leaders are also courting egypt to stop people leaving its shores for europe. and for more on this let's cross over to a sound about ready to be correspondent max hoffman is covering the summit for us i still miss more about the talks on refugees and migration particularly the ears overtures to certain north african nations. egypt seems to be the new hope
12:04 pm
of the european union you know for months now we had this idea of so-called disembarkation platforms that's another word for migrant camps in northern africa where the application of migrants could be treated the problem so far with a concept was that none of the northern african countries seemed interested now for the first time they have a name it's egypt that is willing to talk to them that doesn't mean they're really willing to have those camps in egypt but they're willing to talk which is sold here as a huge success and apparently all the leaders when this idea was brought forward by the best quotes the officer said for. the refugees another major issue looming at the still is break that and do resent me and the prime minister presented happened to lead us there how was it received. nobody really said anything as we understand midnight on wednesday that's when she presented her so-called checkers plan and the reaction is for today from the e.u.
12:05 pm
twenty seven so all the you member states minus the united kingdom but it seems like everybody's ready your calls at least for compromise the tone the atmosphere seems to be very positive although we really haven't understood yet how this compromise what it's supposed to look like but it could also be that they're trying to keep a low profile on the topic because some a has to go to her party conference as soon and she will have to survive those so they don't want to put her under pressure just now but we'll see afterwards what the cards really are how far the e.u. is willing to go and how far. is willing to go because there are still two remaining issues of course you know them future trade ties and the border between northern ireland and ireland and exactly when you mentioned northern ireland that has been long a sticking point on the issue of bridge that has there been any movement that. we really hadn't heard anything convincing yet because not remaining part of the
12:06 pm
single market the e.u. single market and not having a border those things are contradictory it hasn't been done yet before but all the parties want to avoid at all costs this border between northern ireland which is part of the united kingdom and the rest of ireland which is part of the european union so you had suggestions like push back the border into the irish sea that's something that's recently has rejected very very strongly so we don't know it also depends on the future trade ties this is probably going to be the the last issue to be resolved if at all. i'm not still needs to be done next elfman at the e.u. summit in the austin city of thank you. along with briggs at the refugee question is also expected to dominate today's agenda at the summit in salzburg not at the height of europe's refugee crisis in two thousand and fifteen the overland passage to the balkans. asylum seekers but again transit

12:09 pm
war and hostages many refugees. in one nine hundred ninety two there were more than fifty thousand refugees here so the number of migrants today is not really so high many think it's high simply because there's no solution in sight. like often in this multi-ethnic state the nationalist parties of the boss next creations and so have been at odds also on this issue and elections are imminent. nationalists here in boston had to govern i have fused to my current question from the beginning of this election campaign to the nationalists the migrants on issue for the e.u. to resolve since that's where they want to go brussels has given u.n. organizations seven point two million euros this year to help asylum seekers but most in b. have say that's not a viable solution the town has built up a modest tourism industry sensible seymore ended twenty three years ago
12:10 pm
a model which for example runs a guest house on the river a favorite spot for because and nature lovers especially from the middle east. have a lot of arab visitors who don't want to get in a situation where the police are checking their i.d.'s and assuming they're migrants that's why fewer of them are coming here now but people still invested heavily in tourism. through the portal laws and that will inevitably make life for refugees such as. here even horrors many living just outside the use of external borders say the europeans are merely shifting the problem further down the ball come route. left not being up to date with some other stories making news around the bond japan's prime minister shinzo be has been reelected as head of his ruling liberal democratic party in a landslide victory he won around seventy percent of members votes if

12:12 pm
also appears to have given new momentum to pyongyang's denuclearization talks with washington the historic summit ended on a high with jane and kim jong un keen to show they can overcome obstacles together . visiting the peak of a sacred volcano in north korea was perhaps a fitting end to this historic summit north korean leader kim yong and south korean president mungy in race to their class towns against the stunning backdrop of mt pake to follow in what seemed like positive talks the people though had mixed feelings about the outcome of the summit. on the kind of personally i believe that peace on the korean peninsula will be possible because times have changed both leaders are actually trying to find new ways to improve into korean relations had a mom and you can turn your back on them going to and i was even there it took on a man who didn't get anything out of north korea in terms of denuclearization kim jong un only wants to get rid of u.s.
12:13 pm
military stationed here and destroy our alliance with washington this summer declaration was nonsense and should be nullified. whatever their skepticism efforts are being made to allow international inspectors to observe the dismantling of north korea's main rocket launch site but kim yong says the closure of the yongbyon nuclear plant depends on reciprocal steps by the united states what he means by that is unclear. back in june donald trump became the first u.s. president to meet with a north korean leader analysts believe that north korea will want the u.s. to declare a formal end to the korean war possibly demanding a withdrawal of u.s. forces in the south and the relief from sanctions that are hurting north korea's struggling economy president trump has not ruled out making concessions. well we'll see what is what we'll see but in the meantime we're soft it is very calm
12:14 pm
he's come on come so we'll see what happens. a similar kind of calmness perhaps between these two leaders on the peak of this sacred spot although both of them and the rest of the world too was surely aware they were standing on a volcano. joining me now is to. south korea gave the three day visit and we saw that the two leaders standing up against the backdrop of the sacred book you know what was the message their leaders were giving by choosing this location. well i really think that unity was the definite message here of the idea the korean peninsula could be entering a new era you know this mountain is basically known as the setting of a sort of a logical story about the beginning of the korean people so it's a symbol of essentially of what it means to be korean. and south korea's president
12:15 pm
has said that he dreams of going to this mountain in cuba and by feeling that wish is kind of sending the message that korea may be divided right now but there are still indeed one people right to read this is a take a step because now let's go to give a drunk so welcome you seem to really be happy they could this be heading to well it's a korean dream if your kids shouldn't in the coming months. you know i'd i'd like to think that it is but it won't be a quick process if we do indeed see you know reunification or of the merging of these two countries and then near future there's a you know reasons for that the first one being you know to formally create a peace agreement and to the korean war north and south korea really need more than just themselves to sign on and that would basically require for the u.s. to be on board and right now i'm not so sure that the americans want to be washington is treating a piece of surance between the u.s.
12:16 pm
and north korea as a bargaining chip and they have expressed that they want to see more solid steps towards denuclearization of burgers and then there's the idea that denuclearization itself would take a very long time if it's a prerequisite to reunification of the actual process of dismantling and surrendering these weapons and you know as someone who lives in reports in south korea i have seen that a lot of south korean people are not necessarily receptive to the idea of reunification right now namely because their economy is really struggling and they're not necessarily ready to open their doors you know potentially millions of other people right. to south korea thank you very much for that assessment. cancer rates on the rise in china with the disease now the country's most common cause of death it's an epidemic the china's health care system was ill prepared for
