a financial and national champion in germany. cordle's their top so massive much we find out from our financial correspondent in fact put wife. and kid progress. on this. hundreds of thousands of infections each year correspond to see how the time preschool the disease. russian president vladimir putin and north korean leader kim jong un have wrapped up their first face to face some at the disgust of variety of issues including security on the korean peninsula and the north's nuclear weapons program all of this just two months after kim son met with the u.s.
president daughter trump ended in failure. it was their first ever face to face meeting but for russia's vladimir putin and north korea's kim jong un the body language suggested it was set to go well talks took place on an island off the pacific coast near the divorce talk and went on for two hours a little longer than expected but statements after the meeting didn't really give away any substantial news but. of course we spoke about the situation on the korean peninsula we exchanged views on what needs to be done so that we can improve the situation in the future or leonardo and this is not just just the korean peninsula and the regional political situation which is garnered the urgent attention of the world and we also held deep discussions on strategic ways to pursue stability in the regional political situations and on matters of jointly managing the situation
. but later in a press conference putin revealed how he expected to play a further diplomatic role. spring from unity american chairman kim jong un asked us to inform the american side about his position. about the questions he has in relation to the processes that are happening on the korean peninsula and everything that's happening around these process is pretty simple. short of the summit then has offered putin a chance to push russia's agenda of opposing u.s. influence north korea's talks with president trump on the country's nuclear arsenal broke down without a deal in february. for more let me draw in m. you share when d.j. obvious correspondent in moscow and joining us from seoul south korea is journalist . welcome to both if you let me start with you emily the summit is wrapped up what was the first sound the two leaders the meeting here was given
a very warm welcome what came out of the meeting go. well we didn't really see any big breakthroughs coming out of this meeting after all this was the first time that the two leaders met at all as you say so this was really very much the two leaders sizing each other up and it seems that they came out of the talks with a kind of basis for a friendly relationship judging from what putin had to say after the meetings he gave a small press conference and he said that kim was an open person he called the discussions that they had had open as well and he also said that russia had kind of assumed somewhat of a mediator role we'll have to see what that means going forward but he said that kim had said that everything that they had discussed could be passed on to other countries and that russia would pass on what kim had said the position of north korea to china and the u.s. and can you what can you tell us what is that expectation also this summer of love
was it so important for him. this summit was really important. because after the failed summit with donald trump he really wanted to broaden his or. international allies that he can you know kind of work or use leverage on to get some kind of easing of economic sanctions right now north korea is really hurting from the u.n. sanctions that have been the fact in the country who are. looking for some kind of relief especially as a nation deal isn't happening very quickly. and really as because russia was keen on reducing pyongyang has gone commercial nuclear program and they did in these talks was any indication that some progress was made on this issue. well speaking after the talks flooding here putin said that north korea wants further security guarantees including on its sovereignty the sovereignty of the
country itself. in order to go forward with the deed nuclearized nation process he also emphasized that russia has. a lot in common when it comes to their position on denuclearize ation with the us he said again that russia is interested in do nuclear arising and in the korean peninsula peninsula being denuclearized and also in nonproliferation around the world more generally after all for russia this is an important issue as well because they want stability on their border we shouldn't forget that russia after all shares a land border with north korea and putin was also very much advocating continuing talks continuing to build trust including by bringing in the chinese who were actually part of a previous form out of six way talks up until two thousand and nine so we may see more diplomatic wrangling and a broadening of conversation
a broadening of the people brought to the table on the on this issue on this crisis and can't be a bunch of that and you can't issue people young is in desperate economic does it get any support from russia on the easing of sanctions that you mentioned earlier and possibly financial aid. you know so far we don't really know there's not a sign declaration after this meeting but we do know that north korea definitely had every reason to talk about economic sanctions as well as other forms of economic cooperation and so far you know north korea has had ten thousand migrant workers and russia and according to you know the saying imposed by the u.s. russia's most expel those workers by the end of this year so i'm sure much of the conversation was about how can they keep those workers in there a longer especially since the united states estimates that about five hundred million dollars so significant about money comes into north korea or workers around
the world every year. get a service in solon emily sheldon indeed obvious moscow bureau thank you both very much for your reporting now for a look at some other stories making news around the world after months of speculation for more vice president joe biden has announced he would run for president in two thousand and twenty it's the seventy six year old's third bid for the white house he joins a crowded field of democrats competing for their party's nomination and he is seen as a front for. environmental activists have been a kid at the london stock exchange and climbed onto the roof of the train a spot to protest urging britain to take action on climate change the group called extinction rebellion or want the government to declare a climate emergency and eliminate carbon emissions by two thousand and twenty five . the woman lost twelve million hectares of tropical forest last year
that's according to new data from global forest watch the fees to live defense against climate change and the researches have called for urgent action against deforestation the loss is equivalent to pretty foot four feet every minute. merger talks between germany's two biggest lenders dortch a bank and comments bank have been called off potential risks and restructuring costs was cited as reasons the deal was backed by germany's finance minister who wanted to create a so-called national banking champion but the idea was met with opposition critics fear the loss of some thirty thousand jobs. a financial correspondent ali bots is tracking that story he joins us now from frankfurt what gets more about why these talks collapse and what this means for deutsche and commits buying. well one group spokesman the group spokesman for the bank addressed journalists just
a little bit of a while ago and he said that they had good talks and fair talks in a partnership kind of atmosphere but they both concluded that there was not enough added value considering also the risks involved risks like the capital base the deutsche bank probably would have had to raise capital in order to take over the command spunk or for example restructuring costs before you save costs by cutting jobs and cutting down the number of branches you need to invest in order to provide an incentive and provide compensation for the people you're letting go he did say that first quarter results also underscored the ability of the deutsche bank to stand alone what happens after this is up in the air both a lot of people would say have hurt themselves by talking merger and not going through with it going through with it would also have been a bad idea come out spunked could be a takeover target for foreign banks that said that some foreign banks like you know credit or or the i n g of netherlands had expressed some interest i don't
know what is the reaction you are hearing about the collapse of this. well you know you mentioned the finance minister all of shoulders here germany's top finance politician i haven't seen a statement by him yet but there have been statements by for example a financial spokesman for the c.d.u. c.s.u. hans michels he said that economic sense has taken over over pipe dreams so he thinks it's a good idea that that not happen green spokesman financial spokesman lisa post said that this escapade has ended it never made sense to imagine that you could create a bigger bank with bigger risks and the bundesbank also weighing in saying that the deutsche bank is solid and stable and come out strong has also even if they don't merge and the fund company take saying that common sense had won out in the end so
you see the kind of direction these comments are going. where the busts of the deadliest financial correspondent in frankfurt thank you very much. does she lanka now where most suspects have been arrested for their possible involvement in the suicide bombings on easter sunday dozens of people have so far been taken into custody of the lease and if she so often the suffix almost three hundred and sixty people died in the attacks the tonga churches and hotels she was president has also offered her the resignation of his head of security off the intelligence units face took off on information about a possible terrorist attack. now most in need isn't she longed to see the fear of backlash after the attacks the suicide bombings have been condemned by muslim groups but many in the community say they feel vulnerable do you have views nimish i just sent a sister or from colombo. she could not get back home to
do what they thought he's doing to get to spend the night in his house if it comes off on another ship easter sunday a few hundred metres from what you lives a massive lost. at the macomber church. he fled the next day with his three young children and wife. not one not door. if you will feel more traits that he had received so since we had being in the in the edges of the main draw so we fought off. and also being with that with the children we secured and that is the reason what will what made us to be site believed how says he or. she has grief stricken about the attacks and feels guilty that the puppetry to us other seemed religion of him. he's a christian not to think of him and his family as ted it. was. all along his street the homes and shops office
a muslim neighborhood. several muslim one businesses were attacked after the bombings. there's a tense atmosphere in the city. what christian and muslim communities in sri lanka have been talking to buy blood test extremists in the past muslims and christians in the country have co-existed peacefully so far the easter sunday bombing set off tensions between the two minority communities for the first time. local muslims have tried to show their support holding prayers sending condolences and emphatically condemning the attacks. but with the traditional friday prayers just around the corner muslims body it may not be safe to congregate. a small but vocal group of sri lankans are trying to help them. there from different religions and ethnicities and trying to find ways of producing the backlash muslims. and
religious leaders from both communities are meeting to express their concerns as well as that solidarity crackdowns against minorities on martin northern sri lanka and a national emergency has been declared here again just as it was during the two decades of civil war that civil liberties work after the nine eleven incident in the u.s. in the name of national security and countering terrorism and in sri lanka we have an experience of civil liberties being curtailed dramatically during the course of the water anywhere after the war in the name of fighting six terrorism so days of worry that the similar situation writes probably against muslims destroying. muslims and christians have always kept a respectful distance. now there is hope that the easter sunday bombings could serve as a reason to build stronger bridges between the two communities. today is world malaria day it's a disease that was once on the decline but now if it's to continue to have stalled there was his organization estimates malaria kills four hundred thirty five
thousand people in two thousand and seventeen alone this at a time when international research funding is declining our correspondent hundred trees has this report from mozambique. here in the village of. the waiting room at the medical center is overcrowded fourteen year old moose armando and his mother are among those who have been waiting here for hours. my head always feel so hot in the night i lost my appetite my legs feel heavy as if there's hardly any blood flowing through them in. a village was destroyed when cycler me died tore through the area flattening most buildings and destroying them and the subsequent flooding even the medical center was damaged by a falling tree. the force of nature and the destruction are still visible all over . but while the reconstruction is continuing there's
a major concern right now diseases and in particular malaria. some parts of the region are still submerged providing ideal breeding conditions for mosquitoes and his mother have had to sleep in the open with no protections against the insects since their home was destroyed. we didn't have any mosquito nets i was swept away in the floods along with our whole house no one has given us new nets. finally it's turned to see the doctor the only one at this clinic. here's a confirmed he has malaria like so many others of the patients seen here by dr candy to our tour in recent weeks. was following the cycle of the number of malaria diarrhea cases has increased compared to previous months. i think some areas are
still waterlogged after the psycho and the floods that's where the mosquitoes breed . we need to launch a campaign just stop the mosquitoes from spreading. mother receives the mets and he needs in exchange for a symbolic fee of one cents a good thing since that's just about all she can afford to pay now she can only hope that the drugs work and that she and move will soon have a roof as well as mosquito nets over their heads. joining me now is scientist levi she now from the max planck institute for infection biology welcome dr levy now believe it is a disease that was once on the decline but it's making a comeback what explains this the short answer to this question is we are not treating sure it's a game as a surprise because there were really massive efforts to contain the deceased for use tribulation of insecticide treated mats and truck trip months and they believe
it reflects one of the usual cycles of my area distribution and we have to understand the factors which drive one area and that's an attempt you're making it to do in the lab it's effective also being out in the field in africa now a new. malaria vaccination campaign is being launched in some african countries it's been described as a breakthrough tell us about this funded project and this is really an exciting time and really is a historic week because that for the first time ever we have launched my area exhumation campaign and pre-conscious and offered come and it is a national campaign so all kids will devise a matrix with this waxing now this vaccine is not yet the dream product it does not prevent infection but it prevents their death of the kids and if they can buy one
heart for the number of kids who are dying from malaria i think it's really were on . other any downsides is vaccination how affordable is it for people because as we saw in our report many of the people who are affected by this disease in fairly kind of weak financial situations i think this first campaigns are fully supported by the governments of the contras for engaged into this process and also by numerous foundations to give money to pay for this was sentenced this campaign's also will help us to. how would you create a new course in truck sales to prevent infections at all so you're optimistic about this funded project and what about other techniques. in the scientific was to to cope with malaria because it affects large parts of the world in asia and africa and south america and that's absolutely true and i think again i'm very optimistic and i think we are living in exciting times because at different angles there are multiple trolls now which i've been developed to stop malaria speaking about
mosquito control for gene drives up locations which are not yet ready for application but we'll get there soon and development of new powerful lessons right dr. from the max that institute thank you very much for sharing your expertise with us in europe concern is growing over the crisis in libya and the lack of a coordinated approach to it the u.n. envoy for libya says he hopes to start peace talks between the country's two warring sides in the coming days and the un backed government in the capital tripoli is under threat from an insurgent general who has made massive territorial gains germany and europe are now worried that the instability in libya could spark another refugee crisis. libya's strongman general khalifa haftar and his continued offensive on the capital tripoli have exposed europe saw a lack of virtue and libya policy in french newspapers on wednesday the head of the
internationally recognized libyan government prime minister fires surat for the first time openly denounced funds for supporting general haftar and thereby fueling the current crisis a crisis many say europe chose to ignore or the europeans have become completely irrelevant in this crisis through their disunity it is also a problem of german policy because here in berlin libya has not been recognized as a priority not something that really merits. being raised with president. yet but then insist it fully recognizes the severity of the situation and start and he'd want. a state on the southern border of the mediterranean right next to europe with no security and where there is an armed conflict is a problem for germany and europe. so far germany's
attempts as chair of the u.n. security council to forge a joint u.n. position have failed while reports of money and arms pouring in from the united arab emirates egypt and saudi arabia amounting if you can we are aware of these reports but we do not have our own findings that i could share. german m.p.'s too are beginning to worry about the knock on effect of a new libya crisis it's obvious that the pressure of pressure on people to migrate and try to to escape from the situation. going to rise and it's going to be of course affective for for that what is happening in europe this is a key conflict. store step in which europeans have completely abandoned control to far away gulf states and if this continues libya will become a proxy war between regional and international players germany has less than a week to go as chair of the u.n. security council of course. germany's u.n.
legacy is already being overshadowed by its apparent failure to live up to its role as leading power over this new libya crisis. now with some politics here's a bit of upcycling for you if you don't know what to do with the old denim jeans you could have them turned into you are just give them to the british office in barry who makes fantastically detailed artwork from denim. was one of them let's take a look. this gigantic pile of jeans is artist barry's color palette barry has at least two thousand pairs of jeans here in his london studio and he needs them all he's constantly searching for just the right shade of blue so now i can. get shoes pain and mix. basically going to go find the right shade or walk around. an hour free hours just trying to find the right pace.
berries large format photo realistic works look like drawings from a distance but up close you see that there are intricate denim collages. once barry locates the right shade he cuts the fabric to just the right shape and size and fixes it in place with a special adhesive. piece by piece the picture grows the many layers make it almost three dimensional. theories of earliest collages were portraits of one nine hundred fifty s. actors who transforms denims image i want to make these portraits of his people made of what it is today in the past. and it wasn't seen as high fashion. these days barry's inspiration comes from the city he lives in london.
he's even devoted an entire series to the laundromats he says are the hearts of many communities here it's sad to see so many closing down so i want to document quite a few in london. you can take several weeks to create a collage like this one. also creates huge denim installations in galleries around the world would sell for tens of town. of yours but he also exhibits in other spaces like ads so for just department stores. he wants his art like jeans to be for ever. so incredibly creative you're watching the doggy news coming up next in the news asia chinese security contractors get
