if concessions so i would say that say about a year ago three years ago i used to say and many others observers said well sooner or later north koreans probably will see him and start talking but they're going to extract a lot of every scene from the united states all interested parties now it seems a. major condition is just to make sure that americans will not start shooting second to have some of their recent social lifted as soon as possible before it will strike the economy and they're not going to port much more demands for the time being now professor link of there is a lot of discussion in the united states especially among those who do not support the idea of the presidential some that it would be encouraging north korea for its bad behavior but i think the relevant question here is also whether it would encourage trump for his bad behavior because you mentioned that he's policy of
essentially blackmail has worked so far if that summit indeed takes place. wouldn't that make bellicosity on them eric and fired a more acceptable form of foreign policy i know that for the time being both russia and china are endorsing the idea of the meeting between kim and tran but i suppose they would be just as happy to have trump threatened in the same manner i was there my chair of russia and china has much more force and much more they're much more capable or biting back and nobody would trade asr russia would share in such a race or oh yes it's a kind of a bad example but let's face it norsk audience for the same blackmail tactics for me it's a bit funny to see how the scene creates if for decades have been favorable to use of kenya and now use this as same efficiency. against killing young isn't it funny
to see when basically you're not all blonde tromp try to. himself it's a bit for funny all this fayyad funi and all the stuff i don't think is going to be a blight on the us scale to any serious op and and nor scary is dangerous by the it's basically steal as a small and very poor company well sadly nobody likes to get a taste of his or her own medicine special and off we have to take a very short break now but we will be back in just a few moments stay tuned. our. political
variability. to keep. to the to justify at the difficult times. and the years on live up to it i know. i was able. to look. addition. to what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race is often scary dramatic developments only i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk.
welcome back to worlds apart with unfeeling culture professor at the university insults now professor link on just before the break you commanded donald trump on the success at least initial success of his blackmail tactics. but the news of the last few moments and we are recording this show on tuesday is that donald trump decided to fire his chief diplomat secretary of state the facts teller sent the question to you is why the donald trump at this point of time has the team to capitalize on these initial diplomatic gains he actually have. negotiated the diplomats who would take this initial success and develop a. into something more concrete. than your sheeting is going to be a tough this is
a major program because it's an open secret that president trump despises his diplomats and i would say is if feelings are largely largely to surprise kate it is therefore or will last say a year or so a lot of highly skilled people have left the state department and essentially is now the door have a single person who has experience of negotiating with his and it's most people in the state department carry in team and you commerce it's a big problem how well they're going to develop is a great strategic success the it certainly did it was a strategic success of by presidents diplomacy i'm a bit skeptical because mosconi else are very good very tough negotiators they don't change their teams for years for many years to come people have been
negotiating visit americans for twenty years and this people more all the big points and probably will take advantage of it so well it's not probably good news because if everything because becomes a mess it will be bad news not only for the united states not only for more scary it will be bad news for sellers carrier for china and of course for for eurasia now you mentioned both russia and china and i think up until recently at least both of them have expressed cautious endorsement of this initiative for you know that moscow has even gone as far as to suggest that this summit may take place in moscow dad off for i think was downplayed later on in the kremlin but i think it's still on the table do you think there is any chance of either russia or china stepping into the void and how being good shumpert ministration to secure these deal for the benefit of. secures i'm very i'm we have to tread very carefully here not see you
invite any accusations of collusion but at the end of the day i think we would all agree that you know the peace on the korean peninsula is in the best interest of humanity isn't it not only humanity her marriage is something abstract but there's i have argued just a few minutes ago. in korean peninsula is an interest of russia because russian interests and for basically cheney a centrist a very simple cost russia warms. second russia of one's status quo sought russia of once didn't care. if mr trump if president did mean business if he was really going to deliver a strike against last year a messy war not their city yukio war but a mess of war was the most likely outcome there for any kind of reduction in tension is a good news for russia however talking about
a possible negotiation than moscow well until it is simply it would be a good idea to have laws cells kadian summit or say assignment to be to be in north korean leaders and u.s. president or western leaders it would be a good idea to have them in russia maybe not necessary in moscow where you are still because of on the full seated tour they can be sure or maybe in my native petersburg why not maybe not moscow but not now. said it's right now russian issue is very big in the united states probably it has never been the case that russia attracted so much and favorable attention well since maybe as a hundred fifty years since their anticommunist here and the communist scare saw it to be probably a good idea if russia is too much involved in this negotiations not now in the long run yes but now it's probably safer to just avoid maybe a. little sort of the situation. because well sometimes russia will be happy to see
americans in trouble but in kerry is such troubles very easy can develop into russia or trouble there is an actual commitment from kim jong un to having this summit with south korean leader president. in the next month and if that happens that would also be i suppose a major breakthrough the third such summit in history. who do you think has more at stake at this meeting and do you see it as a stepping stone towards meeting with trump or does it have value in and of itself a larger stepping storm because surprise india. is a generally very pro american country even as a political forces used to be entero kind of the past like say supporters of the current president they're much much more favorable about the united states now the trial will or does not mean that they like a by president however nouns are less inspired of all this
right now nor scary and. in the same boat because in the long run. it's constitute a mess of densher for this i was scary and but it's for maybe in the long run maybe the end when we are talking decades right now as a major threat south korea faces is a threat or a military operation initiated by the united states the easiest skull eight into of war and if we have a war it will be lost and so i was scared eons who are going to die in large numbers so right now the an interest is to reduce tensions do i understand you correctly that you're essentially suggesting that south korea feels donald trump a little bit more than it fears came to an on yes as an immediate threat yes it's a tactical threat it's a long run of course kim jong il is a problem for sales guardians but in the short iran it was probably. mr trump so
what i see is that they're basically playing together most and just reduce the tension to create the impression of there are now more scatty and are ready to talk and they're ready to make concessions and they are indeed actually ready to talk and indeed are ready to make concessions talking about the north south korean summit unfortunately cells kerry and president has very little freedom of action it can not problem is any kind of economic assistance to last year because such assistance would be a violation not only of the us borders see but of the internationally approved e.u. and sanctions it is flawed and presidential to talk about as a military should because it's going to be blocked by the united states as well and of course everything related to the nuclear problem is exclusively exclusively an area where nato of exclusive american interests so basically if they can smile
discuss the quality of meat and barbecue or maybe approve some kind of nice cultural exchanges you know. peg and or fight or so and you know of. here they can not discuss anything serious a saw is that lychee of you will be a step in storm to this summit be to be in trump and team sign me to be sure you really can't or bend pass for future negotiations and ration and exchanges between. having said that i think what it least i find very fascinating is this new role the south koreans found themselves in because they're essentially now acting as messengers between pyongyang and washington rather than you know being a separate party to the conflict and i think that's that's a very interesting development i don't think we've ever had. south korean officials communicating to. the americans what do you north koreans want do you see any do
you see that as a positive development for the inner careen negotiations because i suppose that when you act as if not necessarily as a mediator but at least as a go between the your optics shift a little bit and i think you you try to prepare the base for a compromise a little bit more than the you would eat if you were acting in your own capacity it dawned they would try really hard to prepare ways for compromise because if shooting starts it really is a subtle scary as we're going to die in large numbers including a lot of people in the top political idiot so they're working hard on board and talking about there are all digits into this uprising and it's also unnecessary because bourse norsk audience and the americans perfectly cap about the things themselves and contrary to what most people suspect this kind of claim to stein on the official secrets cut channels of communication between vosh and kellyanne have
always been at the racial of what i am saying they not only count talk they have been talking for all this time and the decision to include last year. here is largely done because first of all. diplomats to use the two drives of h b three and sells get in the united states and they also want to create sort of united front there's a south korean government because for the time being as they have set for boss north korea a possible media theater ration by the americans can see a greater threat then as said it ical possibility of all via wars the war between themselves which is not going to happen anytime soon so they want to sort of you united front and i merican all civil block to give some kind of to make some gestures to emphasize the significance of the cells. basically
it's normal about playing some games behind their back but professor link i think it was reported in the new york times just there the other day that. south korean officials are searching not only as mass injures between pyongyang and washington but essentially. the americans are making them play the role of spokespeople because at the end of the day it was a south korean official who announced a willingness to negotiate with with with the north is that a form of had risks on the part of the trumpet ministration or simply he's a whole lot of knowledge about how the diplomatic niceties are supposed to work out because i think it's also pretty unprecedented to have a north korean official to communicate the will of the american president to the world. it's exactly what they have just set. are valuable now for their medical and american administration and maybe american diplomacy to
emphasize their significance and this is via such an unprecedented measure taking basically americans sending a signal to saul you are part of the team if you will probably object you really can do very little by the take you very seriously and you're going to give you a lot of extra rights because your part of the team and basically ignore scotty and also sending a somewhat similar see you know look the boss i afraid of this strange guy is the vital house is in our good interest to reduce the tension for the time being maybe in twenty years that all of the threads we are going to fight one another and that changed nuclear strikes because go on is it to go nuclear eventually but for the time being our major problem is across your show let's act well professor len cough i guess you can find a silver lining even in. the darkest cloud and if trump's unpredictability provides
for these bonding experience between the two koreas so be it anyway we have to leave it there i really appreciate your being on the show today and to our viewers please keep the conversation going in our social media pages as for me hope to see you again same place same time here on the walls a part of. our. model is one of the most controversial products of odds on. vegetable found the family tree. twenty seven production grew to sixty three million items that rapid
a thousand people in the process. of. starting for president tomorrow. this weekend is kevin owen here with the weekly a roundup of the big stories of the last seven days and. what's been described as the city's worst my. day riots in fifty years the violence began after a mosque on take up in this protest is hijacked a peaceful rally against the french government's labor of forms the so-called black bloc activists torched cars found last shopfronts and clashed with police a correspondent shot to do but was in the thick of it.
in the middle of cashews now starting the police only to have a look over you'll see the tear gas is coming up to us the police move again i'm not because just behind us there is a fire going on the demonstrators have put forward to a very cool and a motorbike and as you can see how it's. ok. well as you might have gathered we've just been in the middle of what was quite a large clash between the police and the protesters just look behind me this is one of the trucks with the water cannons and you can see the gendarme now coming down and you can see some of the water in the foam that's been on the ground to try and push these protesters back take a look behind me and they're actually trying to barricade themselves up now that's off to they set fire to what looked like
a g c p the fact it's still own fire over there in the distance the process is did is if you just turn around a little bit more what kills me to have a look at this you may see this. over the smoke coming up here on the protesters what they did is they lit for it to what seemed to be some sort of motorbike and a car just want to give you a sense of what sort of damage has been created from those clashes and not just conscious but the damage that was caused by the protest is the police had warned early on to. the morning ahead of these may day protests they thought they were going to be hijacked by anti capitalist by anti fascists and they were indeed that they came out in their hundreds ready with a gear their safety gear to be able to protect themselves from the tear gas the masks protesters would damaging and smashing items up across this part of paris and the police had let them be just come over here and you'll be able to see the
boards here of a fast food restaurant that have been put up that was completely and utterly destroyed the restaurants further behind on the street was also destroyed and basically the police did very little in fact nothing for a long time when this destruction was happening it was only further on into the demonstration when the violence took place a little bit further on that they actually did something they've said the reason that they didn't react as quickly as some people say they should have is because they were trying to avoid collateral damage. meantime of further pouring of anger at the government and its pro-business economic policies forty thousand hit the streets of the capital on saturday to that event was organized to coincide with the first anniversary of president a minimum of crohn's election when protesters could be seen holding banners bearing slogans such as stop mccrone and down with the president of the rich around two thousand police officers were deployed to that demonstration to avoid risking
a repeat of what happened earlier in what we just showed you the rioting you are during labor day seem as though the march reportedly passed off pretty peaceful. for the stories that brought you in the week this was a turnout for the books the acclaimed american rapper kanye west might be considered by many to be a modern day creative genius but he's controversial twitter rants are now landing him in strife a renowned strategic intelligence and this is chipped in he's been poring over can use timeline and concluded that can you west is there for a russian spy secretly working for vladimir putin it's mainly because west revealed his warm support for donald trump online make the connection more against the of looks at the never growing army of kremlin agents remember when being portrayed as a russian spy was funny a bit of a joke. over itself what do you do in the dark when.
just the way filings what are you a russian spy assaulted. by a kitchen. who isn't funny now could be anyone in the oval office in the pentagon madison square garden. can years recent coordination with trump along with his use of infamous or rhetoric and symbols confederate flag reek of products here just join up the dogs tinier indorse trump publicly their friends. i'm not saying can you west is involved at all in the trump russia scandal but i am saying he has russian ties and was there right after the twenty sixteen elections scott did walk in or perhaps work in a contributor for the us news channel m.s.n. b c and also founder of russia gate agrees there are just too many
dogs not to connect them kanya west went to russia he went to russia he literally flew to moscow and walked around the jew see what he got up to i sure didn't get to be doing anything it's now so obvious why didn't we see it before we see it now and there are more of them clint eastwood openly backed trump and the russian connection is blatant clint eastwood speaks russian. pretense. oh and robert de niro he hates trump or so he says but look at the fact he owns a chain of all true a luxurious restaurants in moscow and he's opening a new one soon you know who goes to his restaurants oligarchy we're not blind
