the u.s. president. the north korean leader in. the talks. north korea plays host to russia's foreign minister. says to him. if only someone told me where exactly we are right now this is how suddenly you get treated to. hello i can barely remember being given such access. around the world i'm absolutely shocked. that in the program the u.s. blocks a u.n.
security council resolution calling for an international force to protect. the world face international my names you know neil welcome to the program our top story the u.s. president sees a historic summit with north korea will go ahead in singapore on june the twelfth remember what i say we will see what we will see but i think it's going to be a. we deserve to have i mean we really deserve they want it we think it's important and i think we would be making a big mistake i think. donald
trump made valve a non spent after meeting with a north korean envoy in the oval office the official from pyongyang who is a former spy chief and general under over a letter from kim jong il but the contents of the message have not yet been revealed in fact joked about it at the meeting with reporters afterwards the u. turn on the summit comes a week after trump called off the talks to do what he called open hostility from north korea. meanwhile the russian foreign minister has met with kim jong il an n.p.r. circular for off paid a visit on thursday and expressed his support for deescalation efforts on the peninsula a. tranquil was with the delegation gained exclusive access to the residence of kim jong the. we were told to leave most of our belongings and all our mobile devices we find and
now they're taking us somewhere. so we're here in this band just to keep our men one photographer and myself rolling a lot of state in. this area is completely deserted and it looks like we're in circling something that appears to be the powers. that be if only someone told me where exactly we are right now but we are being told to fold us mad because . the group of people. who. i don't really know what exactly this place this but it looks to be the area where it came john who will be greeting certainly loughborough and the reason why i think so is because just through this door i saw him john we sister and she was having
some sort of conversation with the guards but nobody speaks english here hello. lou hennessy far as i understand this is circular limo please please. please feel the 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 sergei lavrov is here having direct talks with the supreme leader of north please please . and talking behind this wall we were asked to wait in this room so let's just have a walk around to take a look at what they have to offer
a. dark north korean chocolate i can tell you that it tastes just like any other dark chocolate anywhere around the world. so this is how suddenly you get treated to cranberry juice at kim john lewis residence. i can barely remember being given such access at other v.o.i.p. locations around the world we were just told. the president which is just outside the doors. of the city to be. interviewed and given the fact that we're inside the residence of the north korean leader kim 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 making the korean peninsula free of nuclear weapons is a very delicate issue maintains that the interests of all sides must be respected. so that said it all ended with inviting came john to russia so let's see whether the north korean leader will accept the invitation for now we're heading back to the airport in the russian foreign minister's motorcade. franco right. residents and pyongyang. certainly not an every day report interesting stuff. if a tranquil in north korea well we're joined live now by eric seraphic an arctic human rights attorney a long term expert on the korean peninsula surrounding area eric welcome the
meeting between donald trump and kim jong un is bach all what made trump changes mind do you think i think it was the visit by president moon really who came to the white house after president trump said he was canceling the meeting and laid something out to president trump that seemed to change that because the south koreans have been trying to pull over. and. gave a truck. and that opportunity was a chance to perhaps step back and be part of the peace plan or that the south koreans might have chosen to go it alone yeah it's interesting just some of the remarks after it as well the press conference. held mentioning he didn't just mention what was happening in june the twelfth you mention what is
happening this week because kim jong russian foreign minister sergey lavrov met saying don't trump said i didn't like it about how and why he's about to think what what's what prompted that response. well a lot of it relates to some old cold war rhetoric that's been driving this machine in korea for far far too long and this type of well we don't like that they talk to talk to the russians seems to me to be jest the old john bolton and neo cons who seem to be surrounding drums more and more stepping up to try to create a do this is this even what's going on there i mean the leverage off meetings a very positive meeting having exchanges having dialogue is so important but and yes it's very all right much of and what do you do you think there is perhaps even
more to it eric because trump and once the decision to hold the meeting on june the twelfth the summit right after talks were nice between kim jong un vladimir putin to be held later this year is there anything in that do you think. you know i've sent for a while now that you know if you give this president the branding runts like call it that snooty b.p. the trump peace plan you're going to have a situation where this president's going to be excited because a legacy issue could really use right now and he wants to do what no president in the u.s. has ever done before and this would be something no president has done before so it is an opportunity for him and if you believe the other people off the other countries take the lead in the u.s. becomes a side player in peace then you lose that that is talking of first the north korean official him met with trump back came young choice is a choice he's made is
a former spy chief and general who is under u.s. sanctions we know it's surprising that he was given access to the oval office does that in itself perhaps show a breakthrough of sorts. i think it is a breakthrough to have people talking and dialoguing and to begin to look in reality and not shape our own sanctions and retribution i think that this is an opportunity to open things up more and in the end by allowing this person access to the white house to a meeting it's a recognition by the white house that this meeting is important and that the u.s. wants to demonstrate leadership in this area and not be left on the sidelines and so this perhaps it's as the russians have said an opportunity to revisit sanctions as we go through this process and maybe this will be an example of how once you
build on this in donald trump even use the word relationship and i think that's essential this is about i think formal diplomatic relations and a peace treaty and that they should be able to accomplish in one bt denuclearization and further relations and dealing with the complications of that and the same sions can be spread out over several meetings but let's get to that first meeting agree on a peace agreement and agree on for a whole relation june june the twelfth ten days ahead it's a long time in politics that could be a few you turns yet erick erickson iraq and human rights attorney live on the program thanks thank. the u.s. house vetoed a u.n. resolution calling for an international force to be deployed to gasso to help protect palestinians the draft was put forward by kuwait a security council emergency meeting open to those against.
the us was the only country to float against the document and afterwards u.s. ambassador nikki haley proposed on alternative resolution but no other countries gave their support. because this resolution is wildly inaccurate in its characterization of recent events in gaza and because it would harm any efforts towards peace the united states will oppose it and will veto it if necessary but there is an alternative we are offering a separate resolution it condemns hamas as indiscriminate firing of rockets against israeli civilian communities well the move comes after months of deadly unrest on the israeli girls and border on friday one person was killed believed to be a part of medic and more than fifteen others injured. tensions are running high where the palestinian protesters who are very close to the front and the israeli forces acting. on the only. limit of the time to.
mean how many. more do you guys are being fired and cousin protesters as you see. tear gas is literally thing the place but also targeting the palestinian prime minister and there's another injury that was just right now from that near the fence and as you see tear gas is filling the place the injuries are coming injuries after injuries and most of the injuries today are actually and that right leg that's how we saw more than fifteen injuries in the right leg that is already snipers continue to target the palestinians with live i mean it's you know and as you see at that time i think are ready to take every three that are drives thousands of palestinians
continue to participate in the great march of return for more than ten weeks now the palestinians are holding one message to the world that they have the right to demand and they have to right to protest well since the start of the so-called march of return at least one hundred sixteen palestinian protesters have been killed by the f soldiers on the israeli gaza border here's more figures according to the international red cross thirteen thousand palestinians have been injured almost four thousand wounded by live munition but the organization is no boosting its medical assistance program in the arabian mission of comes at a cost of more than five million dollars it includes two surgical teams for conducting two thousand operations a fifty bed surgical unit as well as additional part of medics on supplies we spoke to a member of the red cross who described the humanitarian situation there as devastating . the hospital simply
cannot grasp or deal with a bigger influx of violence. if we see the same amount of wounded arriving in your speed doors as what we saw on the fourteenth of may and would simply have hundreds of patients leading to death as a parking lot. was. tens of i've already lost some of their limbs and became amputees and follows arms have been wounded including several thousands by live ammunition that's something that is overwhelming for any health system in the world the accelerated deterioration of the humanitarian situation has affected all speed towards the dead as ethically the old claim for a structure so the capacity of the system to cope with this is really new in frick's is extremely limited and this is why the i.c.r.c.
he says well. its capacity to whence where we've as a medical kit needs you're in gaza. was. you know when you are you know peter higgs a palestinian red cross and a speedo and in fourteen minutes eighty were been wounded arrive when you're in chief and in eight hours five hundred cases arrive this is something that is absolutely unmanageable in most schools in paris in new york but even more in gaz are which is already civilly weakened and butter of the place a very difficult humanitarian situation that prevails in history. i was. humanitarian assistance is very nice and this is why we decided to act even more but on top of the.
absent of geopolitical really even decisions the situation we only worsen and worsen guys are now working on the edge of a cliff. the spanish prime minister has been forced out of office after losing 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 said premier admitted his the feat during day two of debate on friday. a lobbyist though they look at those from what we all know the no confidence motion is likely to go through which means mr petro sanchez 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 piece in the history of our democracy and we will now start reading the first paragraph but i can tell you without hesitation that we in the new government will
put the interests of the spanish people above all socialist 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 cents out of a three hundred fifty members chamber however one by one crucially opposition. parties including social likely rivals hold a mass fractious regional parties in catalonia and the basque country and it took their support and reached the crucial tally of one hundred eighty votes with just one hundred sixty nine in against and that was when marianna finally
realized that the game was up and this is his replacement socialist party leader pedro sun shares will be sworn in as prime minister during the weekend he has been a thorn in the former prime minister side for some time now most two years ago when parliament voted on approving marianna a new cabinet sanchez refused to give his backing although that move cost him the leadership of the socialist party which led to a nine month political deadlock but. six months after that sunshine made a shock reappearance winning back his position and despite receiving large support from smaller opposition parties he's still likely to face 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 sanchez will also of course have to deal with that issue of catalan independence and the separatists in
the region since last year's referendum we've been getting lots of reaction to this one through key ruga is one of those who've spoken to a spanish history lecturer he believes the catalans 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 the issue in catalonia is going to be the one of the hot potato spanish politics in the coming years and for this government as well centive been saying that he's happy to thailand and have a conversation with the new council and president but on the other hand he said that he was going to have that conversation within the framework within the rearm of the spanish constitution so it's an opportunity to food to prime the pendants party on the other hand centive doesn't seem to be very happy to talk.
beyond the constitution. whilst we're in europe italy is also going through a political shake up with just separate contests who's never held political office before now heading up one of europe's most restless parliaments his appointment as prime minister ends months without a government since the election in march the previous prime minister designate scrotal cover really stepped aside after just a few days be you president all task house call for unity and solidarity more than ever as italy's euro skeptic score by forming a government with ministerial positions already being filled just big con tape is a fifty three year old academic and law professor who's known to dislike for red tape and he's already valued to slosh as he put it uselessly. or news in ninety seconds this international.
we see. more and more people even more and more political leaders understand that. you know these micro three clubs is a three year old who does not serve the target the other future is the european union. who'll be the next to get the treatment that greece got from the troika the i.m.f. the e.c.b. the e.u. they gang up they destroy a country for profit it's a it's a smash and grab and greece was destroyed they had a referendum and then they didn't pay any attention to the referendum they didn't want the troika wrong and look what happened in greece it turned it into a pit it turned into a shell it turned into garbage and now the same bankers are getting together because they need a like a shark always something to destroy to eat consume so we were trying to figure out
how would italy be next for spain and i think were the two likely candidates i guess as we've been saying that for five years that this was coming and i guess down italy will be the next meal for the i'm. twenty three minutes into the program welcome back fellows ins of migrants in parties are being cleared from their makeshift shelters along the city's canals roughly two hundred of them being resettled in a wealthy district in the french capital shows he went to find out what the residents there think about their new neighbors. this is one of the nearly wrecked it camps in paris it's being set up to shelter around one hundred and seventy migrants who are amongst the founders so who are cleared from the canals of paris doing to one side waits thousands of my clients to. 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. had been embroiled in a war of words over who was responsible for clearing the camps. the situation will be repeated indefinitely if measures not taken by local authorities to prevent the camps reappear. in a battle 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 counts so i'm waiting for the states to get back to me on that. now these migrants are being housed in broad deploying one of paris's wealthiest areas the sixteenth on d. small it's also home to former president nicholas sarkozy p.s. g.'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 as people are here because they're alfredo afraid to say i'm some of the most be very difficult and some of them are very very nice i'm sure but a really tough part of them may be bad. 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 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 it do to continue to clear out of camps that emerged along paris. these 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 if sorties can do to keep a lid on the problem even ski r.t. pass. it is just two weeks uncommenting until football's biggest spike to go gets on the way this friday the twenty thousand feet for world cup event devoted to it by the circle of light festival right here in the center of
the russian capital let's take a look at these are the pictures from the light show at capturing as organizers say the essence of the tournament lighting up all pitches famous players on the even some old russia the eagle eyed among you will see that that is the bolshoi theater in the center of moscow with the main sporting events so close and to support is proving hard to contain for the world cup even where there is no up in the sphere in the early. some impressive goal keeping skills there are in space showing thomas is here in
isn't only about what happens on the pitch put a funnel school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super manager killian erroneous and spending two to twenty million on one player. book it's an experience like nothing else on here because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game migrates a woman or transfer. and thinks this minute. it's seven months it's believed that we should get a song from encompass option that has to be ok but let's be honest about the season final decision on this issue. has to come from. those washington these guys and we need you tonight as we do all three rules.
