commission president urges the blog to look east and strengthen ties with moscow amid hefty new target of some posed by the united states. live from moscow to the world this is our international my names you know neil welcome to the program our top story a meeting between the russian president and the north korean leader is in the pipeline for later this year the kremlin say the possibility of a summit is currently being discussed the announcement comes on the back of thursday's meeting between russia's foreign minister and kim jong the circular for off expressed his support for deescalation efforts on the peninsula but i should be humbled gradually our. goal has been following the delegation for us and was
1:02 pm
granted exclusive access to one of kim jong residences. we were told to leave most of our belongings and all our mobile devices behind and now they're taking us somewhere. so we're here in this van and just to keep our men one photographer and myself following a lot of savings. in this area is completely deserted and it looks like we're in circling something that appears to be the palace. if only someone told me where exactly we are right now but we are being told to fall this man.
1:03 pm
i don't really know what exactly this place this but it looks to be a area where it came john who will be greeting some of the loughborough and the reason why i think so is because just through this door i saw came john in sister and she was having some sort of conversation with the guards but nobody speaks english here hello. and as far as i understand this is circular. i believe this is a bit of a historic moment we still don't know whether the attempt from meeting is going to happen but at least sergey lavrov is here having direct talks with the supreme leader of north korea.
1:04 pm
talking behind this wall we were asked to wait in this room so let's just have a walk around and take a look at what they have to offer a. dark north korean chocolate and i can tell you that it tastes just like any other dark chocolate anywhere around the world some lemonade. so this is how suddenly you get treated to cranberry juice at residents. i can barely remember being given such. locations around the world we were just. at the present which is just outside the doors. of the. city. and given the fact that we're inside the residence of the north korean leader kim
1:05 pm
jong the moon again i'm just going to say i'm absolutely shocked. and. it is really disappointing that we won't be able to find out exactly what's being said behind these stories but just a few hours before mr kim and mr lavrov met the one foreign minister said and making the korean peninsula free of nuclear weapons is a very delicate issue moscow maintains that the interests of all sides must be respected. so that said it all ended with inviting him to russia so let's see whether the north korean leader will accept the invitation for now we're heading back to the airport and the russian foreign minister's motorcade. franco right.
1:06 pm
and pyongyang. to more world news this hour. just hours after the us hefty tar of sun steel and imports the e.u. is vowing to strike back the trade commissioner say she regrets donald trump's the solution to impose increased duties adding that it will harm relations between the two allies this is very unfortunate it is unfortunate because it will. cause a lot of damage to us the limited medium industry it is unfortunate because this is further weakening the transatlantic relations even union wanted to avoid this situation or let's go through some of what we know under the new duties e.u. countries will have to pay as much as twenty five percent extra if they want to see their mettle products on the american market now that could spell trouble for a manufacturer is there as the european union is currently the world's second largest steel producer after china europe has taken its concerns to big legal might
1:07 pm
of the world trade organization to mediate resolve any dispute with washington after the new tariffs were announced the european commission said it may now look to russia. that we have to reconnect if i'm not very happy. so we have. come to i wouldn't say a normal illusion we've washoe but there are so many areas so many domains look at the look at our differences on the streets but do so. in. that's true. well i'm happy to say joining us live now from london is a lot colma tayshaun the former prime minister of korea sure very welcome to the program do you believe that the pivoting to alternative trade partners like china and russia will now happen after what they've said. first of all
1:08 pm
getting story viewers of russian t.v. and the news i just heard that maybe president kim is coming to russia it's a great news and the effort of president putin is extremely important for the for the diplomacy and the peace of the in the world secondly concerning these tariffs you know i am against in principle of unilateral movement concerning. international trade and their faith in the agreements and i believe that that move for a doesn't have any real basis because if you are looking on the job see in the u.s. steel industry coming from two thousand year two thousand. shaved incline even during the period between two thousand and two and two thousand and prevent george w. bush in polls also on the steel doesn't make any results and now the whole
1:09 pm
industry is. around eighty three thousand people employed so this that if we heard much more much import that industry of you are sick or not me and didn't bring any good for the overall free trade in the world you just mention in your in your broadcasting that what was the reaction of u.k. or european union basically you knew you pretty you know we'll go to the w.t.f. . put the case in front of w.t. or china order to react they put as far as that even a one hundred twenty eight articles under the custom and tax tariff so it will be roughly three billion in debt in that sense so we're on the right that the spoils free trade and the global economy by
1:10 pm
unilateral moves what do you make of the reaction the quite strong reaction we've seen so far from canada and mexico we know that canada said that they've got a specific list of targets set to impose in july and mexico is vying for tat measures to. yeah you're absolutely right you know and especially it is a little bit surprise for me the iraqi reaction of the big current days are long term economic partner of us and obviously. they feel that that move is extremely against extremely wrong and against equal basic economic interests of canada and that is as i tried to explain to you you know. idea each of the solution of the trade trade system which is part of globalization
1:11 pm
you know russian and other companies are working in all kinds of different countries and different continents if we spoil this regime and really obviously doing that it will be a lot of problems for the world economy donald trump said national security concerns were behind the global targets what risks allies like the european union and calendar pose to the u.s. . you know national security is a good excuse because there are. pearl of national security you can done a lot of moves. without a lot of explanation but if it's a case of national security there are other measures not imposing that if because it's not the best way there are the measures every country could undertake to to by passed over a bridge that problem if national security is
1:12 pm
a cause but that. almost showed that it's not a national security on the other hand you know president trump is a businessman. doing politics and a lot of politicians especially in europe does not recognize that that does not understand that and with him you have to negotiate so at the end of the day there will be a negotiation yet just on that point about the american president he also previously said that the tara start to protect u.s. interest rates from aggressive trade practices he's been pushing that line for quite a while will they not have the desired effect for u.s. producers taking politics out of it or could it all backfire for them. i don't think so because you know a u.s. producer surveiled been hurt by these measures more than we can imagine because
1:13 pm
final products which are producing in states contains a lot of steel or a certain amount of hero minium and it will be by definition more costly and less competitive so there is a very good. study let's say by goldman sachs individually stated that the losers of that move and the one who will gain from that indirectly is russia and china just finally about your home country what kind of industries if any are likely to be hit inquiry a shed by these new cars. no no. unfortunately or luckily we have very limited production of aluminum. producta. you almost have tall so. it doesn't mean you're old ok it bypasses for the moment is not comity shift former prime minister thank you very much for coming on the
1:14 pm
program and sharing your views it's been great having you it was my pleasure thank you for the mutation. now the spanish prime minister has been forced out of office in an unprecedented move which saw him lose a no confidence vote in parliament it was filed by the rival socialist party leader who now gets the job with his slim parliamentary majority the i state premier admitted his defeat during day two of debates earlier this friday. a lobbyist though they look at that from what we all know the no confidence motion is likely to go through which means mr petro sanchez will be the new prime minister and i would like to be the first to congratulate him it will be this chamber that will make the decision and it is up to all of us to abide by the mandate of the popular sovereignty represented here i believe that today we're opening a new page in the history of our democracy and we will now start reading the first
1:15 pm
paragraph so i can tell you without hesitation that we in the new government will put the interests of the spanish people above all else senseless party made a predator santy it is now spain's new prime minister that followed a vote of confidence which he called a week ago in response to a high court ruling which sentenced several leading. figures in marianna. people's party to have to jail sentences following a long running corruption scandal including the party's former treasurer it looked like a long shot at first because sentries only commands eighty four seats out of a three hundred fifty members chamber however one by one crucially opposition. parties including social life would rival spa day most and fractious regional parties in catalonia and the basque country added up their supporters and reach the crucial tally of one hundred eighteen votes with just one hundred sixty nine in
1:16 pm
against and that was when marianna a wholly finally realized that the game was up so no pedro sanchez will be sworn in as prime minister over the weekend he's a forty six year old former economics professor and current leader of the source this party and has been a thorn in the former prime minister's side for some time and twenty six think when parliament voted on approving a new cabinet sanchez refused to give his backing although that move meant he was forced to step aside. this socialist party leader which led to a nine month political deadlock in twenty seventeen sanchez then made a shock reappearance after winning back his position but no despite receiving large support from smaller opposition parties he still like be the face on the major challenges the liberal party citizen's is one they've been calling for another election and seem to be the only major party backing the prime minister while
1:17 pm
sanchez will also of course have to deal with the issue of cattle independence and the separatists push in the region since last year's referendum well we spoke to. a spanish history lecturer who believes that could take advantage. the jews have eighty five m. peers there's a very very. small number of. parliaments and that does a limitation in itself so it is going to be a very very limited government in that respect there's no doubt in catalonia is going to be that one of the potatoes is spanish politics in the coming years and for this government to swell centive been saying that he's happy to thailand and have a conversation with the new cats on precedent but on the other hand he said that he was going to have that conversation within the framework within the re arm of the spanish constitution so it's an opportunity to food to prime the pendants party on
1:18 pm
the other hand centive doesn't seem to be very happy to talk. beyond the constitution. here staying in europe let's go to another country going through a political shakeup it's silly with just seppi commentator who's never held political office before heading up one of europe's most restless parliament now his appointment ends months without a government since the election back in march the previous prime minister designate it's carlo couple rarely stepped aside after just a few days meanwhile the e.u. president donald tusk call for unity and solidarity no more than ever as italy's euro skeptics go about forming a government with ministerial positions already being filled just typical day is a fifty three year old academic and law professor who's known to have a disliking for a bureaucracy and he's already. as he put it useless lords. a
1:19 pm

1:20 pm
security cell joining his hearings let's get more details from the off them. what we've seen today is of course the continuation of the case of korea skeel was jailed on the fifteenth of may he was the he's the editor in chief of the novice to ukraine news agency and so basically here his two months arrest but the court decided to basically the court rejected his plea and the coalition scheme self described the pressure he's being put to that is being exerted on him that he himself compared to torture and have a listen. is hard to maintain working in a situation where experience constant pressure including psychologically and then build as if i killed kennedy well as i've mentioned he was arrested on the fifteenth of may when ukrainian police raided the offices of his news agency and he's being accused of state treason because of because of his professional
1:21 pm
activities and that has caused international concerns foreign governments like for example lin has just said that his case is very important to just looking at it from the perspective of the freedoms of the press the council of europe and the always see have said that this is something that this is something that could impact the media freedoms in ukraine other agencies have called this an attack on journalists and demanded the immediate release of but ukrainian authorities actions that the raise concerns also because they are being motivated by the national security service the same agency that is behind a nother media scandal that was that is over another journalist. what happened a couple of days ago they said that well. a vocal critic was killed murdered in his apartment three shots in the back and hours later they revealed that it was all fake it was apparently staged they thought as they are saying
1:22 pm
someone was planning. his assassination on behalf of the russian government and they needed this masquerade to catch the mastermind but a lot of journalists and experts and international organizations the ask the question well how can the ukrainian government be now trusted if they juggle the facts like that and they're saying that of course this incident will have an impact on carol the case as well you know with those international journalists organizations criticizing the ukrainian authorities kiev is also being urged to stop what's being called the harassment campaign that we've managed to contact several journalists working in the ukrainian media about the kinds of pressure they say they're under but fearing for their own safety if he only agreed to speak to us on condition of anonymity people don't want any problems with police or nationalists who are doing what ever they want has anybody come to our defense when
1:23 pm
they picketed our station or set the building on fire we tried talking to our colleagues but they didn't want to listen any criticism of the government can result in something like that for example they can raid your offices and find a map of ukraine without crimea ukrainian media should have united then demonstrated to the government that it can treat pro position media like that but our colleagues don't want to get involved and we can't organize a large scale protest on our own. another update from par it's now worth of migrants are being cleared from their makeshift shelters along the city's kenneled roughly two hundred of them have been resettled in a wealthy district in the french capital charlotte dubin city went to find out what the residents thought about their new neighbors. this is one of the nearly wrecked it camps in paris it's been set up to shelter around a hundred and seventy migrants who are amongst the thousand or so who are cleared
1:24 pm
from the canals of paris doing side waves thousands of migrants had been camped along the canals for many many months living in squalid conditions with few to no comforts the mayor of paris and the interior minister who had been embroiled in a war of words over who is responsible for clearing the camps. the situation will be repeated indefinitely if measures not taken by local authorities to prevent the camps reappear. we could have avoided waiting for months to find shelter for those people the suggestion i made to the state was to build and reform a welcome center which is really the only the only option possible if we want to avoid the roadside camps so i'm waiting for the states to get back to me on that. now these migrants are being housed in blue are deploying one of paris's wealthiest areas the sixteenth up on the small it's also home to former president nicholas
1:25 pm
sarkozy p.s.t.'s back to ponce football stadium and horse which is currently hosting tennis stars from across the globe for the french open some locals aren't over the moon about their new neighbors i think the people who are not very. pretty to see if people are here because they're alfredo afraid to say i'm some of them or most be very difficult and some of them are very very nice i'm sure but a really tough part of them maybe but. you never know how people can react you can have some people who react very badly and some good you never know despite our thirty's choose not to most hospitable area because it is populated by many old people who are not really open minded so i think that this area is not the most welcoming would you put us in we don't see any changes we don't communicate with
1:26 pm
migrants because we don't see them at all in the area so i guess clearly the town i'm asleep this is now the thirty fourth time in three years that my quince have been moved in paris but the problem seems to be cyclic it's never ending i. thought. was. oh authorities are due to continue to clear out of camps that emerged along paris. canals in the next few days yet with the capital already overflowing and an estimated five hundred fifty extra my quince arriving every week this seems to be little that the authorities can do to keep a lid on the problem even ski r.t. paris. switching gears now football fever is spreading with just two weeks quite incredible the state are two extra go until the biggest event
