why they matter to africa today. this is d w news coming to you live from berlin. new summit partner promises positive efforts on the korean peninsula north korean leader meets with russian president vladimir putin for the first time this just two months after kim's meeting. ended in failure also coming up. his government admits a major lapse in security in connection with the horrific bombings that says
8:01 am
intelligence warnings about the suicide attacks were ignored the president is demanding his top security officials quit. plus researchers work to stem the comeback of malaria which has been on the decline today is world malaria day and we'll hear. the african country is coping. hello i'm terry martin good to have you with us russian president vladimir putin has welcomed north korea's leader kim jong un to a summit in the far eastern city of blood of bus stop the meeting is the first between the two leaders and it's a chance for pyongyang to seek support from moscow especially when it comes to ending international sanctions imposed over north korea's nuclear program just two months ago a summit with us present donald trump. broke down over the top pick before kim
8:02 am
putin went to their meetings into their private meetings i should say they talked about one of their major points of discussion peace on the korean peninsula. i'm sure that your visit to russia today will contribute to the development of russian move korean bilateral relations and how close to understand better how we can settle the situation on the korean peninsula want we can do together and what russia can do to support these positive processes but the happening now. i also wanted to say that now the situation on the korean peninsula has great interest for global society and i hope that our talks will be important to assess the situation exchange opinions on the situation and together address these issues . of more now let's bring in our very own family sure when in moscow and only the two leaders are talking and have spoken to the press we heard part of the statement
8:03 am
is just there what else have they had to say so. well sorry they're currently in their one on one meeting which has been going on for one and a half hours a bit longer than expected so far it seems that there's a lot to discuss and both leaders as we just saw focused on denuclearization in their opening remarks they said that that would be a main topic on the agenda for both sides this is of course the first meeting and there will apparently be no written declarations after the meeting so it's hard to know whether we can really expect any breakthrough sit a both sides are basically sizing each other up but this meeting does of course have huge symbolic importance as the first meeting between the two leaders. take a look here at the time between the reclusive north korean government and the kremlin they do have
8:04 am
a long tradition. the similar. different north korean leader with his visit to russia kim jong un is following in his four father's footsteps. his grandfather kim il sung went to the soviet union numerous times to secure moscow's support during the cold war. his father kim jong il also met with russian presidents the last time was with dimitri in twenty eleven shortly before the korean leader's death. north korea has few friends in the world russia is one of them but they used to be closer the soviet union was once peon young's main trading partner taking over half of its exports today trade is just a trickle worth about two million dollars a year due to international sanctions against north korea's weapons programs taking steps towards each other moscow has called for the sanctions to be eased that would
8:05 am
allow the restart of trade and joint infrastructure projects which would profit both countries. when you look at kim has now met twice with the u.s. president donald trump who was seeking to secure north korea's denuclearization but that last talks in the vietnamese capital hanoi ended in a deadlock. putin the north korean leader is hoping to find a new friend and ally to keep his goals on track. so there's a bit of back. talk about what north korea and russia are looking for in these current talks first. of this meeting with putin. well i think terry kim has two to kind of goals in these meetings the first one is a kind of political goal and the second one is economics so if we look at the diplomatic side of things this meeting really is kim showing to the world and to
8:06 am
the u.s. that when it comes to diplomacy he has other options apart from just the u.s. as we just heard in that peace talks between the u.s. and north korea have stalled over denuclearization at a summit meeting in in hanoi in february north korean officials actually walked out of the meeting and last week again they were railing against mike pompei as the u.s. secretary of state and saying that he's reckless that he should be removed from talks so now kim is kind of showing look i also have i also have these russian partners and of course there's also an economic factor as is so often the case in these these political meetings. kim is trying to expand ties with russia after all things aren't looking so rosy for the north korean economy with sanctions really biting and china is its main trade partner but russia is also an important source of income there are thousands of north korean workers just over the border in
8:07 am
russia which have provided an important source of a foreign currency for the country so that is something that kim is hoping to get out of this meeting today expanding ties because so that's where north korea is coming from the russians saw it with interest. in meeting kim jong il. well for putin the economic side of things isn't so important north korea isn't such a valuable trade partner for russia but this meeting has huge symbolic importance for russia putin is kind of demonstrating to the world once again that russia is an important player on the world stage and that it is and an important has an important role to play in the north in north korea and in the korean peninsula in general plus there's a much more practical reason as well terry we shouldn't forget that north korea and
8:08 am
russia share a land border and stability on the korean peninsula is very important for russia as one analyst i spoke to said we don't need another conflict on our borders. thank you very much there for bringing us up to date emily sure when in moscow. now some of the other stories making headlines around the world today flooding and mudslides have killed over sixty people along south africa's eastern coast it's been caused by days of heavy rain more than a thousand people have fled their homes the worst affected areas lie around the city of durban authorities have warned more rain is expected. lawmakers in the democratic republic of congo have elected a female head of the national assembly for the first time janine is a former minister and an advisor to president joseph kabila she was the only

8:23 am
an islamic country where women who are so talented to be able to become you know top top football pinchy. and in the rankings. previously you know it was considered taboo and eventually you know that whenever the officials and the and whatnot we're seeing you know women are taking such an interest in this they they were letting down a lot of their guards. so i just honestly i find a location on the run and i'm going there this week and i just end up where you know walking through the streets to the parks to the schools and i try to find my players that way so you know very very traditional but i have actually found one of my best players playing in a park with her uncles and her brothers you know she's beating everybody up and i'm like you are coming back with me and you know the fathers fortunately they love the fact that their daughters are complacent there now are football so for them it's
8:24 am
like yeah take my daughter and make her into the next you know super star because they're football nation and they want their daughters to be involved and you know now we have you know we start with forty players now we have over like four thousand football players and you want to say good start. i was one the u.s. i'm american you me and but you know here they don't look at it that way they just say oh hey the the foreign girls but yet in day i'm i'm very iranian at the same time very american so i try to bring the best of my both worlds together. although i'm young you know i have a very strict system is set in place because i want the girls not just to come here to play football i want them to also have a future in whatever they like they wake up very early they train twice or even three times a day and they have to take care of themselves and this is something that if you can teach them they will teach their friends and their friends will teach the you know so and so on so i want that domino effect to happen throughout the entire
8:25 am
country i just a few months ago we were able to enter the stadium see iran which is bolivia see the asian championships and whatnot i think this is a good step it's something that we can fight. for but in general i think internationally we need to be recognized as not the country that doesn't allow women to the stadiums but as a country you know there ninjas and they're fighting and you know they're really improving in their football skills and you know their hands in every social level that's well and it's helped me with the development of a country. so you know i want these girls to be the next minister hopefully the president to be the mayor governors of their side and to help but not just to help you know women grow as a whole. now what shaking on mars the houses in sight lander appears to have detected the first ever mars quake if confirmed it would mean scientists finally have proof that mars is still seismically active probes sensors
