groups for a mass execution with concerns that the charges against the thirty seven must be chemin with trumped up. it's the weekly here on out international with me. highlights from the last seven days on the latest up to date stories welcome to the present. from a nuclear free north korea to bilateral relations and kim jong un met for the first time on thursday in russia's far eastern city of light of all stark after nearly two hours of face to face talks the need is expressed a willingness to further develop relations on tackle the situation on the korean peninsula. because. we just had a fairly narrow one to one conversation we managed to talk about the history of our bilateral relations and about the present day and the prospects of developing those
1:02 pm
relations but of course we also talked about the situation on the korean peninsula and exchanged views on what needs to be done. to improve the situation on the audience mr president we have just had a foreign exchange of opinions traced to friess on all of this of mutual importance and i think you will the great times we are. and even though no agreements were signed it seems the leaders had a productive time to exchange so if and when if the need for respect between the nations i laughed at the talks with a lavish north korean state media reporter that came as ready for more talks next time in pyongyang all things in a picture reports from. literally
1:03 pm
minutes after the north korean supreme leader got inside his limo we were given the opportunity to come closer to his armored train. so unfortunately i won't be able to show you or see for myself any of the extraordinary facilities inside that tray that was used by kim john father i was trying to look through the window but obviously no chances and the security guards are watching carefully to make sure that we don't touch it i've already been told off by the inside there are high tech communication facilities several conference room as well as luxury living quarters in the middle of the train there's
1:04 pm
a special room for him john rooms wife. next two separate cards for body guards there are two restaurants one is for the supreme leader himself and the second one is for the entire delegation there's even a special section for the leaders limo and they're the one that we saw on the station square that massive armored vehicles can actually fit into one of those.
1:05 pm
well it turns out that in a sense john is counting on vladimir putin as a kind of a middleman in delivering his messages to the rest of the world the leadership it looks like chairman kim is hoping that his message will get all the way to washington through russia as well to some german king also be directly to tell the u.s. about his position and about the questions he says it could action with the situation on the korean peninsula we also found out that the russian leader is confident that pyongyang essential desire is international security guarantees guarantees for seventeen and when it comes to dating core ization according to mr putin the only way forward is through these kind of guarantees i would like to remind you
1:06 pm
that four years russia's peace road map was about mutual concession. from both sides of north korea on the one hand and south korea and allies on the other and china is backing this plan to well the russian president believes that for years every step forward made by washington was followed by two steps backwards . but we need some confidence building measures to be taken which could have been taken back in two thousand and five when the u.s. and north korea came to an agreement to waive it later on for some reason the american partners thought this was no it's enough that they needed to add something to this agreement that's when north korea with drew from the treaty if you're making a step forward in two steps back you will never succeed. after what we heard on thursday it is definitely fair to say that there is a lot of potential and kim putin summit and by the way the president of south korea said that this summit in vladivostok should act as
1:07 pm
a springboard for further top ranked diplomacy between washington and pyongyang so chairman kim has been enjoying contacts with the most powerful politicians on this planet his two historic summits with the american president donald trump were followed by one with a lot of our putin and it looks like mr cameron knows what he's doing when he's playing his geo political game. an expert on north korea we spoke to says the summit is a win win for moscow and pyongyang. or. it looks like now he tried to see someone else to help north korea out in between recent by a letter or a meeting between north korea and the u.s. he was so sure that he can leave the meeting between the u.s. and north korea but now he is sick of some help for put inside here recently
1:08 pm
achieved new elections and or so now he can have a spotlight from the international community by playing the role for the korea over the korean peninsula as a peacemaker so it would be. for today's summit currently now south korea having air exercises with the u.s. and south korea cannot be free from u.s. pressure because of a sense for south korea it could be good to have russia if russia can play the right role as a mediator because for south korea itself it could be a little bit tricky to work in between the u.s. and north korea. russian national maria was sentenced to eighteen months in prison in the united states on friday is after she pleaded guilty to conspiring to act as an unregistered foreign agent essentially working as an undeclared lobbyist the thirty year old is said to have tried to influence the national rifle association
1:09 pm
and other conservative groups in the u.s. several american political figures were suspected to be involved too in court mr bhutto spoke emotionally about the effect it's had on her family. my parents discovered my arrest on the morning news they washed in the rural house. i love them dearly but i harmed the morally and financially they're suffering from all of that i destroyed my own life as well i came to the united states not under any orders but with who and now nothing remains but penitence. i have reasons to she's not the main goal of those circumstances she had to put in was to break her will and forces to really acknowledge something she might not have done.
1:10 pm
trying to save face but we grabbed her seized her we put her behind bars for sure but there is nothing they can charge over us and to avoid looking with the killers they sentenced her to eighteen months or just a shoulder she is guilty of something. there is father exclusively told r.t. that he and the rest of his family had been expecting a very different outcome. but we weren't prepared for such a rough and unjust court decision maria is a russian citizen and given all these investigations she's been caught up in it all
1:11 pm
even though the mother investigation had nothing to do with her nevertheless the u.s. has found a culprit over the past few months she didn't have any complaints about the condition of her confinement unlike before when she was badly treated and i was about discriminated against all of them or all in solitary confinement with walks only allowed for two hours a night with all her career her lawyers we all expected a different outcome than a fair verdict but it's hard to say how life will be for maria now the most important thing for us is that she returns home taking into account this new jail term. now we have but to his lawyer told us he thinks a dangerous precedent may have been found. i think it's impossible to separate from from the politics i think that there is a an underlying crime that you pled guilty to which you can make out under u.s. law but i think the notion of this would have been investigated or an arrest would
1:12 pm
have been made for a typical foreign national who wasn't russian and wasn't in the car environment where in the us i think it's almost impossible to believe that southern politics has a lot to do with the atmosphere of the case and it's one of those things where if the elements of the crime are there they were selectively enforced in the sense and so i think it's hard to argue. the charges unregistered agent it's not foreign it's not secret agent it's not an intelligence agent it literally is just doing something for someone else as being their agent not of maria maria's activities in the us were illegal in and of themselves so there's no classified information there's no political sensitive kind of information given she was not paid by by the russian federation she's in her shoes supported by americans while she was here financially but she got caught up in this and she rushes hysteria.
1:13 pm
i would fear that other countries will start applying the same standards and saying that any american who went abroad to another country and it was involved in civil society organizations and social and met people and networks that's really all we're talking about doing are anything more serious than that and reported back on those activities some in the u.s. so i think it's very dangerous because if other countries adopt the same as you're going to get a tit for tat situation with countries grabbing civilians of other countries as leverage or for other reasons i think it's a bad idea. and shooting at a synagogue. in california has left one moment that and three others wounded including iraq by police have detained a nineteen year old man in connection with the incident which took place during a service on saturday to mark the jewish holiday of passover the suspect reportedly
