leave singapore early because negotiations on getting rid of the three weapons have moved quicker than expected. the abrupt change in the schedule came after mike pompeo had seemed to low expectations for thmeeting. in the meantime, the two leaders have been taking in the sights of single or. >> time for a selfie, kim jong-un had not been seen leaving his hotel since his arrival on sunday. he decided to go for a nighttime tour of singapore just hours before his historic summit with donald trump. singapore has designated certain parts of the city as special event areas, barricades and high security checkpoints keep the public out at locations like hotels where the two leaders are stay. of course, the site of this hotel where the hotel -- historic meeting is scheduled to take place.
personnel conferred outside of the hotel as officials met inside on monday. president trump ventured out on monday afternoon, going to singapore's presididential pala. as for syria's statements about u.s.s. expectationons for the summit, those were left to trump's top diplomats. >> this president will ensure that no potential agreement will fail to address the north korean threat. the ultimate objective we see from diplomacy with north korea has not changed. the complete and veverifiable ad irreveversible denuclearizationf the korean peninsula is the e oy outcome that the united states will accept. >> when singapore wakes up on tuesday morning, the whole world will be watching to see what comes ouof the first
face-to-face meeting of two of his most unpredictable leaders. >> in the studio with me now is security analyst mark is kind. -- marcus kind. sarah: for the u.s.'s part, that agreement toward a denuclearize north korea has gone more quickly than initially expected. do you buy it to mark -- buy it? >> north korea is the key. it is a question of national identity, prestige and status and international relations. i can't imagine that kim jong-un is ready to give up the weapons that he has acquired over the last decade so quickly. what i could imagine is a
process being started in singapore whichh leads to negotiations and further negotiations. i i do not really see an agreement coming immediately. sarah: if the was an agreement , the fact that the u.s. wants them to limit nuclear weapons -- mike pompeo has said that the u.s. is offering security assurances that are quite unlike any other previous offer. what could that be? >> they tried to a comment the concerns of the north korean politicians.s. it is not about regimeme change. it is s important that the regie remained stable. i think security guarantees will be key for north korea. i have no idea what they will look like.
we will if the u.s. is ready to withdraw and parts of the u.s. from south koreamissil defense from souea.thor we don't really know. sarah: we have these two leaders who are about to enter a room. two of the most, and if an controversial leaders in the world. it has been reported that we will be in this room with translators, that is something unprecedented. >> it fits into the larger picture of the foreign policy. he pretends to be a dealmaker. he has clearly stated that he doesn't need any reparation. i think he is relying simply on himself and not any advisors. i think it is s not a good idea. i think it fits into the overarching approach of donald trump toward foreign policy issues. sarah: there are other actors
and other countries that have a lot of stay here. south korea and china. neither of them are at the table. we are seeing the n.nuclearization que this is only starting. anything that could be accomplished or will be accomplished in singapore will be embedded to -- to original framework. the security interest of south korea, china and russia as well. one way or another, we will see some sort of reiteration of the six party talks of 2009. it is just a starting point for some kind of creation of a regional security reason --
sarah: thank you so much, marc us. not to europe where spain has offered to taken migrants. they were stranded on a rescue ship in the mediterranean after they refused to let it.. the ship is three days sale -- days' sail away from spain. the charity would ononly last fr onone day. >> at this right - -- surviving the deadly mediterranean waters, these people are caught up in a diplomatic row. among them, unaccompanied minors and pregnant women. the aquarius drifted between italy and malta.
on monday, there was some hope for the refugees. the new anti-immigrant government claimed the offer as a victory. the leader of this party has long demanded that the eu helps more on immigration. >> it is the first thing that italy should take care of this. it is clear the european union caps on this way. what we hope for today is a new beginning. >> the charity running the rescue ship as one of the challenges in reaching the spanish port of valencia. it would take at least two days putting vulnerable people at risk. the u.s. is continuing to put pressure. >> the situation is getting more dramatic have a minute.
that is why we are asking too admittedly authorize this implication and to leave other issues -- >> they welcomed and on -- addressed and unwelcoming local acclimate. -- political climate. sarah: joining me is doctors without borders. thank you so much for joining us to talk about the situation. what are you hearing from your colleagues on the aquarius? what is the situation like on board? >> the feedback we are getting from the ship is concerning. we have 630 people on board. 40 nearly drowned on saturday night when their ship capsized.
many had to be resuscitated. there are pregnant women. many were burned by the mixture of salt water and petrol. we are obviously concerned that even though these people remain stable foror now, we don't know what will happen to them. ouour staff on top of that, the0 people on board are nearing exhaustion because they have been looking after these people. sarah: italy refused to let this vessel. within the country. what do you make of that decision? >> it is really concerning. it is hard to understand every single rescue operation that we carry out is coordinated by the italian authorities. also, we have picked up 100 passengers f from other ships tt rescued them including a number of italian coast guard vessels. we were then ordered to go
towards sicily until about 24 hours ago. we are now in limbo between malta and sicily. politics are being conducted on the back of these people. many of whom have gone through horrendous experiences in libyan detention camps. we really think politics should not come into the question of help and his people. >> we understand that spain has accepted the ship. >> we have not been notified by the italian or spanish authorities. valencia, the spanish horror mentioned in the media is 1300 kilometers away. that would mean three days at sea on a ship that is not equipped to transport people over these long distances. that is down this fullest capacity. even if extra food and water can be provided, this would place a
heart will burden on these 600 people on board. sarah: you are coping with a nationalist government in italy. they have refused to let the ship go to boy. organizations such as your own, doctors without borders, if you can tell us about the challenges in this environment. >> the challenges faced by the people on board is the key issue. we see the outcome of failure can policies of the past two years that have basically played into the hands of the people who put the refugees onto this unseaworthy dinghies and led them to o their fate. the simple fact that europe has not managed or wanted to create a safe and legal way of seeking sanctuary, safety and protection on european shores, that i is at the cause of this crisis. this is unfortunately but another episode in this really unspeakable european
policymaking sarah:. we know this crisis has been going on for years. there have been no solutions. thank you for joining us about this story with regard to e ship and the overall situation. let's get a quick check of other stores that have the nikkei news around the world. at least 34 people have been killed in attacks across afghanistan. at least 13 were killed by a suicide bomber. the most recent surge in violence comes one day before the start of a government declared unilateral cease-fire. germany's foreign minister has been hosting counterparts from france, and russia. the top of the agenda is a plan to create a u.n. peacekeeping force for the region.

>> it is about understanding this concept that our audience is no longer just our audience but they are our content creators as well. we try to bring them in as much as possible. whether it is back-checking, bringing them in every step of the way. >> the topic this year is inequality around the world. >> we think global inequality is something that affects us all. we saw the migration crisis. you can see that there is so many different areas in the world where you don't have any freedom of press. i think it is a vital stop x. >> they come to talk about what the media can do to combat inequality. >> the media is a very big platform.
if we have to fight inequality, the media has to give us a very big platform. we have to look at whatever is creating these any qualities we are speaking about. >> as media people, we are shedding light on whatever is happening. we are in charge of educating the people. >> we have a very large gap between the haves and have-nots. because everyone has mobile phones in their hands, there is that hope that everyone can communicate. maybe that's it and some inequality. -- that could end some of the inequality. >> ususually, it is editorial departments that decide which topics to cover in the media. it is us journalists who need to pick our interviewees. for this design decided to interview these two. i shortened their statements to make them fit into my news
package. >> the biggest critique they have concerning wthe t dia is in the newsroom, there are not enough people representing all factions of society. with their modern technology, they don't want to report on people anymore. instead, they want to enable these people to tell their own stories. sarah: from the media business to the car business. alanna is -- helena is standing by. helena: daimler is trying to show corporate transparency over its dirty diesels. the dimer ceo has ordered the recall of over 200,000 vehicles in germany. they were fitted with software that turns off and mission controls under certain conditions. >> this was before his meeting
with the german minister for transport. two hours later, they put out this video message. the govevernment has dememandede recacall of 238,000 daimler cars in germany and a total of 774,000 cars in europe are affected. this is an unexpectedly blunt statement. -- we agreed that we would clarify the legal questions and take care of the software without delay. the car make a address the problem and its bands as well as -- vans and other models such as c-class sedans. >> it is high time that something is being done.

warren buffett bowed out the company with $300 million in funding. berkshire tri-state became so large that it could not sell the shares in the open market without pushing down the price. this deal allows brookshire to exit what buffett has called a disappointing investment. the new owner will get to reap the gains of a recovering u.s. housing market. >> how do they respond to the g7 mayhem? >> investors don't care about any summit at the moment. this is not easy to understand and even harder to expin. these summits could have significant impact on u.s. companies and also the stock market. when i talked to traders, they tell me there is simply not enough money in the markets right now. investors seem to think it is now or never. as you see, this is a self
filling prophecy. sarah: brexit is still leaving. investment sentiment is not diet. there is trust in the u.k.. is the number one destination for foreign directed investment in europe. they saw a 6% hike in investment. the main reason is increased involvement u.s. companies. this is hot on the heels of u.k. -- it is germany. they are saying investment projects climbing 6%. now it is back over to sarah. sarah: we are having a look at the dark side of sport. amid all of the excitement, there is trepidation that this tournament could end up being remembered for organismnstead
