if you are wondering exactly how this denuclearization is going to take place with the sanctions now being lifted with troops remaining on the peninsula as a rollercoaster just to get to this stage those talks first announced in march of course but it may came voiced his anger over military drills between south korea and the u.s. and threaten to call it off then nine days later drunk canceled the meeting accusing kim of hostility but the next day the white house in pyongyang said things were back on track by the first to do washington officially announce that the summit would go ahead right let's bring in our political analyst chris bambery chris hi there we've had a few hours to let this almost over and think it through so what do you think happened today was it all symbolic or are we at stage one of the denuclearization of the peninsula. well it's interesting we're going into this porch is said that they were going to insist americans are going to insist on the complete do you call of the potential that had to be signed up to in this agreement of course you know there's a general wish to achieve that don't the rule but there's no commitment to that in
this document so try trungpa sort of back. backtracked from what seemed to be an insistence in the key questions of this i mean one do you believe trump will stick by this agreement as it stands i mean if i was a rainy and i would point to the fact that he's ripped up an agreement signed under international law there are many others angela merkel emmanuel mccraw or justin trudeau might be dubious that having reached it seems an agreement g seven trial an event stormed out so there's all that question brought in the biggest thing is you know where are we going here because we need to get an agreement on verification and north korea is getting rid of its nuclear facilities not just its nuclear weapons we need to move towards the militarization of the korean peninsula that's not just an issue for north korea i mean you're talking about perspiring these are war games the americans are involved and we should remember america is a nuclear power with weapons on hand including tactical nuclear weapons that can
bring in any moment so how are we going to proceed down that road trump indicated not in the text but indicated that subsequently he'd like to see at some stage some are you know are running don't know american presence in korea how is that going to work and also just is this going to work in terms of of the unit of the allies of the united states of taiwan south korea japan i don't think japan and tonic taiwan are going to be so happy but a bit of a guarded welcome region labor generally positive reaction those one north korea expert described this as he expected the deal to float but that it was floppy or that anything that he expected or was it really that bad i mean just getting these two in the same room to talk to each other was surely an achievement. well i think as winston churchill says talk talk is always better than war war so we have to welcome that but it falls far short of what patrice was putting up just twenty four hours before the top twenty i mean it maybe that was the hard copy on trump was a soft cotton negotiations but there is nor commitment i want to repeat there's no
commitment to the demilitarization of the the potential in this document which i would've i was expecting would be there so you know fall short no let's let's talk fingers crossed that this is you know the start of a peace process and these two will play out at the same time i too think they're going to questions asked by various the world leaders and it's strange to me that the washington the white house is never take an opportunity missed an opportunity to attack president putin or tech ran over their human rights record just a completely silent over north korea's human rights record i mean they seem to have got carte blanche and this on this one they don't seem to the united states best by donald trump's best buddies in town and justin trudeau of all people is becoming the biggest enemy it's a topsy turvy world and i think you know if i was in berlin or paris or in ottawa i'd be walking this and saying this is like ours and wonder what i can't really walk oh what is going on here we are in the united states to put it best our lives
we've just been done over by this in canada and now is jetted off to reach this agreement which represents very wittily in fact on paper with the young strange times and a lot of people walking on eggshells about another fellow chris bambery political analyst thanks for joining us from london. the world's key players have all been responding to the talks china said that history was made at the summit south korea's also hailed of what it sees as a new way forward and the e.u.'s foreign policy chief says the meeting showed that the denuclearization of the korean peninsula is achievable japan though it said that pressure needs to be kept on the north until concrete steps towards disarmament are seeing. next is just two days until the footballing world turns all of its focus to russia for the start of the world cup fans are hoping and guessing which one of the thirty two nations will lift that trophy in moscow on july the fifteenth and our very own r.t. host considered one of the very best minds in the game to say marino has been making his predictions now last week he picked the countries to make it out of the
group stage now he's mapping out who will get the upper hand in the early knockout rounds. lies get even harder portugal why of course the forests because of my heart's buds. rid itself from that. and then spain against russia as things push are very unlikely the draw because things reveal. different just to jamie a little from this against nigeria i would say. from this is going to win and the substance in australia. i'm going to leave because i cannot see

day twenty three hours forty four minutes and throughout the entire tournament we've got you covered. the fight for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the super money. spend spend to secure the twenty million. it's an experience like nothing else only because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy greek so well chance for . me it's going to.
the legacy call guys are the winners the legacy oil guys are the winners the legacy all central bankers are the winners innovation you dynamism the constitution the bill of rights these are the losers in this america. after just two weeks in power new governing parties are sticking to their campaign promises the interior ministers close a port to a vessel carrying migrants he says the country's new goal is to protect its borders . if you know it was built i want to put an end to this human trafficking which puts thousands of lives at risk in the same way that we raise the issue for the aquarius who are raising the vessels that followed for other countries from what
instead of accepting the migrants are objects of the same what is in north korea to protect the external borders if you rip. one of them. the humanitarian vessel that was turned away was carrying more than six hundred migrants including more than one hundred unaccompanied minors and pregnant women however it was offered to dock in a spanish port instead of those on board have been rescued off the coast of libya over the weekend and we're hoping to disembark in the italian island of sicily we also organizations dealing with the humanitarian crisis about the issues currently facing europe they told us that more needs to be done for understanding and responsibility to take the initiative. we have six hundred twenty nine people on board who have either who have faced a very extreme situation who have faced abuse who have been rescued at sea in some time some people we had to really drag out of the water and we know telling
these people dead they're going to have to say for another several days even all of it to re safety and italy where the closest place is of these evacuees safe places of this in my kitchen it is absolutely ridiculous that we are now in a position where we have to a safe or more download a tells a nautical miles to try to reach spain all days to try to address the failures of the asylum systems even in europe each of these are from plane country that has to accept to welcome a huge number of migrants refugees and asylum seekers but the rest possibility is that of all e.u. member states well i think there's an under the law of the sea there's a there's an obligation to for states to cooperate and to bring people to the near shore but in this particular case you have different pre-determined areas of responsibility so there's a bit of a dispute over which particular country is responsible and i think they're working
that out because now that spain has offered to take the migrants some of them are been taking off the vessel the aquarius and put onto an italian boats because they were picked up by italian ship so i think they're working through the law on that if i understand correctly the effort really is to be more aligned with the actual law of this the so that the burden is shared more equitably among the frontline states which are spain italy. cyprus malta and greece which are taking the overwhelming number of migrants coming in so it's fairly understandable i would think in any system if there's a large body of people coming through who are in the regular situation and of course aren't able to keep up so frustrations are pretty normal. of course has been one of the countries hardest hit by the migrant crisis more than half a million people have reached the country by boat in the past four years this year alone if you just saw there italy has taken in almost fourteen thousand refugees that's more than either spain or greece many of the newcomers have arrived in
sicily and that's something that's dividing opinion on the island jim violent it is it's not right that they're invading us they're illegals if a person arrives here legally they're welcomed but among these people they're also illegal immigrants and that can't be tolerated so the ability they need to be checked we need to know who's arriving these six hundred people as you said we don't know who they are not all of them are honest people close in the ports no i don't think that it's right are only telling migrants have been everywhere and they're welcomed in a splendid way malta refused earlier calls from italy to accept the ship saying the italian coast guard responsible for operations in the waters off libya keith best who's from the european council on refugees and exiles believes e.u. policies may be contributing to the problem. i think there has been a serious failure among many of the countries of the european union to address this issue and particularly the itself in not being a fair burden sharing i rather hope that the stance
of the new very new spanish prime minister will begin to shame other countries in europe and say well we should also play a part as well but i do understand the attitude of the italian government in saying that we've already born an enormous influx of people who are real answer to migration flows of the migration crisis as it's term is to try to enable people to live in their countries of origin you you have to actually try to ensure through diplomatic and international efforts the peace at home for people so they don't feel the need to flee for their lives. a concert by a controversial muslim rapper set to take place in paris is better can't theater has left local stand the venue was had by tragedy in twenty fifteen when eighty nine people died in a terror attack. it's been covering the story for us but
a warning the whole report does contain distressing scenes from the outset. this theater in paris has become synonymous with tragedy. plans by a controversial moves them rock but to perform here have struck deep caught why well just take a listen to some of the lyrics. just. to. define what. this song was released early in two thousand and fifteen before this
horrific attack and it's not only the provocative lyrics about france's secular tradition in medina's career he even has an album called jihad all of the rapper himself says he's against violence and the woodruff. struggle nevertheless thousands have now signed a petition calling for his gigs in october to be cancelled and some politicians have joined in on the protests. no french person can accept that this guy's going to spew his filth at the very sight of the bad a clown massacre we have had enough of complacency and worse of this incitement to islamist fundamentalism. the ruffin the dean of the particle an unacceptable provocation the families of the victims are not being respected. the hosting of the rapper made dean of the batter crime is
a number but insults the memory of the victims of the thirteenth of november twenty fifth dean there are. that cannot be desecrated i ask emmanuel this concert lawyers representing some of the relatives of those who were killed in the massacre and now cooling for the close it to be cancelled. week the worst of the victims and the victims themselves we cannot understand or supported the fact that at the battle in theater where people were killed in islam is horse occurred someone can sing things like that we've been gauging opinion only issue with people in the french capital. and i think he can perform at the better i don't consider it an issue wouldn't go at all i wouldn't even consider for a second. but like i said sprout really. is not a problem for him to play at the back to climb to denounce the things that happen so we have to let artists express themselves but i don't understand the difference
of the risk to his family and those who are affected by the attack it seems that one of france's darkest hour was continues to tell people apart so let's. see paris we have all the raw data and also the bottom of a comment on this and if we do have a response by we'll of course let you know what they say we do have some developing news from from for you now where a street is reportedly in lockdown in paris saw for an armed man reportedly took several people hostage in a building that few details at the moment are not much that we can verify but local media saying that three people including a pregnant woman are among those who are being held now it's believed that the suspect is armed with a gun he also claims to have a bomb as well but again none of these details of verified french police are at the scene when we do any more about what's happening in central paris well that you know that she knew for now i'll update you again in just under thirty five minutes have to see that boy.
redoes should i'm concerned don't tell you that means i can do it on jellyfish dealing with this thing i'm done was wrong in that equal distances assignments are what equals a status and if i. don't he doesn't sit on him to. deal with that to those off putting in a society as a toss out of us at all to the sitting on. what
politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury or something i want to be preached. to the right to be first to see what the forecast reports can't be good that. i've interested always in the waters and. there should be. in the. congo the kids seem compensate all boil to night about it and. people know nothing because. it's not. going
cover and in just a few minutes to cover it so let's get into it stacy ranks you know we have an innovation economy don't we and in fact we're so innovative here that we actually have innovations in poverty you know where inventing new ways to be poor why america is the world's first poor rich country or how american collapse is made of a new kind of poverty consider the following statistics the average american can scrape together five hundred dollars for an emergency a third of americans can't afford food shelter and health care how to care for a family now cost twenty eight thousand about half of the median wage which is sixty thousand dollars and by themselves of course statistics a little but together these facts speak volumes the story they are being beginning to tell is this america it seems is becoming something like the world's first poor rich country i read that it's very interesting they get into this it's innovation
on poverty it's a mix for elements later on in the article including what he called a certain pure tonic goal. radicalism that prevents people from. escaping a mindset of deterministic. pursuit of goals outside of a more community minded spirit that is also contributing to this new neo poverty invention of the american. geist did that make sense oh no anybody out there why oh oh. just checking yes yes it's been confirmed that made sense just to put into context this guy is a professor at i believe it's harvard his name is a mer hake he also lives in the u.s.
and london europe you know so like us he's had the experience of that there is another alternative to how you run certain services and basic necessities of life how you provide those to the population whether it's most important being health care shelter education things like that so he's coming from actual experience of you know you can have a health care system that is not so violent and gruesome and abusive to the members of the health care system you can have it you don't need to have this outrageously expensive crazy system it's not necessary there is a way like germany to educate your population at a low cost to all and yet achieve great results and huge manufacturing capacity but yes the puritanical kind of background that you you must there's a certain sort of. germanic puritan his who of like you wanting to like abuse
yourself for no reason and yet it's caused great distress american exceptionalism is a concept that doesn't really apply to america it's not exceptional in very many ways not in any important ways not in the ways that you would look toward in a society that is healthy there's only one country in the world that deserves that kind of exceptional list moniker and that of course is france the french exceptionalism as well justified it's a jewel amongst country but is it getting hungry just thinking of the shows elisa they know was a croissant. well this guy is. philosopher as well so she puts it she says america appears to be pioneering a new kind of poverty altogether one for which we do not yet have a name it is something like living at the knife's edge constantly being on the brink of ruin one small step away from catastrophe and disaster ever at the risk of
falling through the cracks it is two components massive inflation for the basics of life coupled with crushing asymmetrical risk so that asymmetrical risk is in particular how he points out that risk basically has to been taken off the balance sheets of all the corporations and you see that reflected in the s. and the stock prices and the banks stock prices and values is they don't take any risk at all there's a huge amount of socialism in america for corporations for the corporate elite whether it's in the energy sector of the banking sector or of the housing sector is huge and that's how the housing sector the largest private land lord in the states is blackstone group so this is a huge private equity group and they own the biggest section of they've bought up on the cheap all the properties handed out by basically fannie mae and freddie mac. for them to take over during you know during and after the financial crisis they
also have a majority of the a.t.f. market the exchange traded fund market which is just a rant a system of putting black rock in a position to scrape money away from pension funds in another land grab money grabbing way is completely unnecessary again he talks about it's not necessarily on paper absolute poverty because the america has on paper one of the highest income levels in the world is something like the fourth or fifth highest after several small european countries but the average american has a relatively high income that of a person an anomaly rich country only his income does not go very far most of it is not by attempting to afford the basics of life we've already seen how steep health care costs are but then there is education. there is transport there's interest and rent there is media and communications there's child care and elderly care all of these things reduce the average american to constantly living right at the edge of ruin one paycheck away from funerary one emergency away from losing it all like
even just the childcare thing for example you talk about france i have a girlfriend in france who had a child and she didn't have to work for like three years after and the state provided basically all sorts of access to child care from a few months old she could take it to the crash take the child to the crash and go look for work or go have time on her own my sister who had to return to work soon after having a child basically the childcare costs were more than her income. what's that that seems like insane well i often hear the argument that well sure are in here they have the greater lifestyle and but reason being they don't have to spend any money on their military because the us are a military protectorate but how stupid are americans to pay for europeans defense at the expense of having quality of life so most americans quality of life compared to most europeans is horrible and they're subsidizing european quality of life so
if you're living in france era living awesome really great compared to the typical american life and thanks to the american taxpayer so. do all i hear tanika lism gets in the way because a puritan to go will say that while we are down with god you know our belief in god gives us the strength to subsidize the european lifestyle europeans have a great lifestyle but we've got god so it isn't really a fair exchange i would posit know well everybody has their own different. views on religion and what they want and maybe you know the monks live in and you know. hair shirts and they live totally basic lives and whatever but i want to talk about this article because he says that you know the basics of life the costs are soaring in the united states but incomes have collapsed at the same time so you have health care didn't used to cost half of a median income even
a decade ago after all but now it does so what happens when in a decade or two health care costs all of median income how can an economy let alone a society function that way so in a way i'm kind of curious like our in north carolina obamacare costs about forty four percent and then another like thirty percent last year the projected to go up another ten or twenty percent next year so in a way i'm kind of fascinated by this gruesome experiments it's kind of you know like really gruesome experiments of the past in history that we've seen as like how how gruesome will this get like how awful like what will we do to ourselves. as they would say in france look that up and you'll be appalled but you mention medicare as well and this is the health care system in france is kind of like the medicare system here in medicare you still have insurance the government basically provides.
