6:35 pm
and finally to apologetic yet out of the selection of how has changed the tone in the space of 7 days. there is fear in the 2 matters to be gained to delay the bill it would just cause more inside and this is news in society i'm have not received any instruction all mending from banking. the. any filings will not be tolerated file and foresman authorities. say he is high wall paintings up wait. take comfort them believed them. take them all on high and low hanging on the. carcass. i also repeated internal deliberations over the last 2 days i now announce that the
6:36 pm
government has decided to suspend the legislative amendment exercise that i have to i meet that explanation and communication work has not been sufficient or effective we will adopt the most sincere and humble attitude to just sap criticisms and make him. a promise to make improvements but is it too little too late didn't have the home fleet so from hong kong has been monitoring protests for the past week on sort of calm how does one interpret what has said it's been quite a turnaround within a space of 7 days yes it is but kerry of them just had to soften her tone because of her persistence to push through the lol there had been 3 different protests and . on the 1st protests 1000000 people came out and that she didn't apologize and then there was fallen clash on the 2nd protest and then she still didn't apologize and that's why it led to the big protests yesterday so she just has to soften her
6:37 pm
tone now some people are asking the question whether this is just buying time a lot of demonstrators say that beijing is just buying time that it will push through it because the bill has just been suspended and not it has not been withdrawn. some government officials also say that the bill is literally dead because any amendments or close new constitution works will have to be done before july of next year before the term of the legislative council ends so. that's why some government sources say that the bill is literally to it if the bill is literally dead what does that mean for the numbers to know is that the no also effectively over well beijing has actually announced official support for her and some senior government officials also said that even if kerry alam wants to step down beijing will not let her step down i guess for beijing it's just too much and risk if there were such change in leadership right now it will cost even more
6:38 pm
instability to hong kong and i think this is what beijing wants to avoid right now however this is considered to be a defeat for kerry lamb so some people some experts say that it is fairly unlikely that she will be able to serve a 2nd term is an issue is not all of this on the fed i'm trying to thank you very much for coming in to the studio and breaking that down for us. that's one of the most heavily militarized borders in the world but now it's opened to tourism following deescalation measures between north and south korea the demilitarized zone or d.m. said that separates both countries has been opened for hiking but as the democrats on and bobby on credible reports there is still a long bridge to cross when it comes to peace between the 2 countries. the demilitarized zone is not only a heavily mined strip of land separating north and south korea it's also become
6:39 pm
a unique natural environment regenerated without the interference of mankind now hikers can enjoy the area which until recently was off limits labeled as peace tourism the south korean government has opened up trails into the border area. my husband applied for access and we're dubious about just being selected after we found out we can picked i couldn't sleep because i was so excited had to tell him this we're not here for tourism but to experience the reality of separation and i'm very moved by it to. tell them the society the opening up of the d.m.z. is in line with the recent peace declaration signed by south korean president jane in north korean leader kim jong un in during their 1st meeting last april but with the u.s. north korea denuclearization talks crumbling into korean relations have also been stagnating some experts argue that south korea's engagement policy towards the north might not be sustainable i mean essentially north korea and using engagement
6:40 pm
also sort of a tool to make sure that south korea space on their side rather than on the american side. are left as an informant and maybe a creation of us relations i think it may be difficult to see any problem corresponding improvement in relations whether pyongyang will indeed have a breakthrough with washington in denuclearization talks is still in doubt north korea doesn't want to give up their nuclear weapons horsehair overnight obviously because 1st of all the best of our resources and time in building a 2nd is that there's a reason why they developed in the crap you've overlooked in the 1st place they want to have been capability to make sure that they are able to are to a security guarantee for the regime for almost 70 years the demilitarized zone has been separating the 2 koreas with 3 new hiking trails in the d.m. . the south korean government is now gradually opening up the previously forbidden area to its people still this highly symbolic move cannot obscure from the fact
6:41 pm
that into korean relations are right now at a stalemate no matter how hot south koreans are hoping for peace it's part of a complex geopolitical conflict they cannot solve alone. blood brothers separated by all men bought now to a story about blood brothers separated by a cricket pitch it was one of the most eagerly awaited contests of the cricket world cup in england the matter between india and pakistan 2 bitter rivals on and off the pitch an estimated 1000000000 people you're going to watch one of the biggest battles in sport with india coming away with an 89 run victory. 7 world cup wins in a row over their greatest rivals no wonder these indian fans were celebrating. the party continued long into the night across the country. bragging rights from
