welcome to the new u.s. president donald trump has vowed to maintain maximum pressure on north korea until there's complete denuclearization on the peninsula his comments follow a historic declaration of peace from the north and south korean leaders on friday asked about the future of u.s. troops on the peninsula trumps defense secretary said it would have to be discussed with u.s. allies and pyongyang our white house correspondent kimberly healthcare reports. with the historic summit with the leaders of north and south korea now over u.s. president donald trump says he hopes he can build on that success with his own meeting in late may or early june with kim jong un i think the responsibility has fallen on the shoulders of the president of the united states and i think we have i think i have a responsibility to see if i can do it that goal complete denuclearization of the
5:03 am
korean peninsula the korean summit ended with few measurable steps to meet that goal the trumpet ministration maintains a meeting with the u.s. and north korean leaders will not occur unless concrete moves towards denuclearization are clearly demonstrated little rocket man traps tone has dramatically shifted from the name calling of last year a truck promised further missile testing from north korea would be met with fire fury and frankly power just this week trump referred to kim as very open. and i think very honorable from everything we're seeing the shift is evidence of the ongoing high level talks north korean and u.s. officials have been engaged in still trump wouldn't confirm or deny he's spoken directly with the north korean leader and i want to comment on that plane i'm sorry we have a very good working relationship it is known mike pump ale the new secretary of
5:04 am
state met with kim over the easter weekend some human rights activists are skeptical a trump kim meeting will ultimately be successful i know the diplomatic track record of the kim regime it is not good this is a regime that has breached and violated each and every international agreement it's had the logistics for the upcoming meeting are still being worked out according to the president it is now down to a choice between two countries for their historic meeting kimberly help at al-jazeera at the white house will momentous meeting in seoul came across the border into the south becoming the first rule of korean leader to do so since one hundred fifteen and nine hundred fifty all diplomatic editor james bays has more from punch you in south korea. technically they are still at war but this was carefully choreographed to create a new atmosphere of peace north korean leader kim jong un entered from the north
5:05 am
side of the demarcation line the south korean president moon j in waited at the concrete block that marks the start of his country's territory. a historic handshake. and then something in all the years since the korean war the kims father and grandfather never did a north korean leader crossing into south korea. but. it was followed by a reciprocal gesture moon jay in very briefly crossing the line into the north. both leaders seemed relaxed and was smiling but of course they hope this summit is only the start of a process and that's likely to be complicated and will involve difficult negotiations. on
5:06 am
a much head on the dangerous meeting i hope that there is new history written with regards to p. for prosperity and i will approach this with the feeling of a brand new start. when the supreme leader across the demarcation line on this a story that moment there was immense expectation on us all over the wild and i hope this discussion is productive over lunch the north korean leader and his fast moving security detail headed back to the north side so he could confer with other members of his delegation then a few hours later a symbolic moment of tree planting using earth from the mountains in the north and the south and water from the two biggest rivers on both sides another image filled with symbolism as the two crossed a footbridge. together then in a move highly unusual in international diplomacy they stopped the two leaders sitting face to face alone with not even no takers for over half an hour on ing out
5:07 am
the final issues of their declaration it was signed and they made these statements . to charge him under john it's very significant that north korea to come measure of freezing its nuclear activities first it will be a valuable beginning for the contemplate denuclearize ation of the korean peninsula came jong un and i declare that there will be no more war on the korean peninsula and a new age of peace has begun and again i use only i enjoy the you know i feel that we are part of one family and both countries you have a new policy of cooperation after years of disputes we are here today to say that nothing will make us different again and i will say this north koreans and the south koreans are now sharing one spot on the map and they represent one country in one way or another and we hope to achieve the ambitions and hopes of both countries on the fact that this summit took place in itself is historic but if some of the
5:08 am
things in this declaration actually happen they too will be landmark developments of formal and to the korean war a peace treaty between north korea and south korea and the return visit by president moon to pyongyang in the fall of one part of the agreement though will face particular scrutiny and that's the pledge of denuclearization of the korean peninsula the language used in the declaration gives no concrete details and no timeline the wives of the korean leaders joined the delegations for a formal banquet to end a long day of diplomacy but this is only the start of a lengthy and very difficult process. indeed a very lengthy and difficult process and james joins us now from seoul in south korea i mean as you say james a huge day there of huge symbolism and optimism now that south koreans really have had the chance to take in what they saw on their
5:09 am
televisions what sort of the public reaction. well there was that declaration signed but of course it was a declaration of intent nothing has actually happened so different views i think from different parts of the media on this let me show you some of the front pages first the two korean english language papers and you can see there the headline beyond division in that front page in the career times let me bring you the other korean english language paper this is the korea hair old and you'll see the picture on the front page let me flip it over and you can see it says careers to declare an end to the korean war moving to the papers that are in korean and the chosen daily is the best selling paper and it's a little bit more skeptical it's headline is saying it's only the beginning of complete denuclearization in this headline we're sending you this is the best
5:10 am
selling paper but of course like everywhere else in the world print newspapers tend to be bought by the older part of the population so this is a conservative newspaper also worth telling you that here there was wall to wall television coverage most people don't buy newspapers anymore they get their news of television channels and off online platforms wall to wall coverage here very very different when you go the other side of the d.m.z. what will kim's people told about what happened well they've been limited statements by the state news agency and the state media what they are saying that there was an agreement the words here north and south korea affirm the common goal of realizing a nuclear free korean peninsula through completely nuclear is asian and they were holding this as a new milestone but very very limited and edited coverage in north korea and as you
5:11 am
say james it is a statement of intent of what these two countries want to do as they move forward but will we see any movement be it even behind closed doors before kim jong un meets president trump. well i suspect they'll be dialogue going on behind the scenes as there has been dialogue going on between north and south korea to get this summit going since the winter olympics that's really the moment when the two koreas started talking there have been other back channels between the international community and north korea before those pics and before the outreach from the north koreans to attend the winter olympics but in terms of public events the next thing is the summit the next summit the perhaps even more important summit that he's planned but not yet fixed but tween president trump and kim where is that going to take place that's a big question are the americans happy with the progress that's been made in this
5:12 am
summit to go ahead with their summit certainly on twitter president trump has seemed pretty positive saying that previous that minute u.s. administrations have been pulled in the past but his approach is working he made clear on twitter what we do know from previous statements from the blue house that's the presidential residence here in seoul there is a plan for president moon of south korea to speak on the phone to president trump we saw the time that he spent alone with kim on that blue bridge i'm sure some of the insight from that long conversation he'll be giving in a private conversation to president trump before then we'll leave it there of course our follow the day's events with you james from the south korean capital for the moment thank you. well joining me now is learned at petroff he's a lecturer in korean studies at the australian national university college of asia
5:13 am
and the pacific joins me now from the australian capital canberra good to have you with us while the impression is that the negotiations are between really the two koreas i mean how involved diplomatically are regional countries such as china obviously the u.s. and even japan in this political a very complicated equation. well this summit would not have been possible without china and russia joining the united nations security council and board sanctions last year north korea now is really. feeling the bite of the sanctions kim jong un is facing potential you know people at home or in the asian american led strikes you implied. so the choice is pretty poor so that's why i came john and decided to turn solve. for the brainchild of to the south korean brothers and sisters which was accepted
5:14 am
by the new president who was elected. under the promise that the relations between north and south korea would improve and this is what just the living up to the promises and the president probably took. in running the electoral campaign he promised that he would meet with kim jong il and sit down and have a hamburger and sort out the differences so i think there's a little surprised to what is happening right now and we only can. relate by the fact that north and south koreans meet kim jong il met with presidency and now the summit with donald trump is shared also everything will not going as planned because the way we do we should we be so optimistic that the two koreas are actually talking to each other we've seen similar circumstances where we've seen negotiations conversations around tables over the past twenty odd years it's all sort of collapsed is there a danger of that or is that just something that i think the diplomats have to be cautious of. well this process of
5:15 am
reconciliation oppression and we saw ups and downs in the last forty years starting from one nine hundred seventy s. not in south koreans to bargain potential conciliation olva's called upon the united states to finish the war and find a peace treaty but nobody listened in the early one nine hundred ninety s. the joint of into korean agreement on the nuclear reservation of the peninsula and non-aggression have been signed but they were postponed for for almost twenty years until the six party talks began and they also collapsed because of the two parties simply not seeing the possibility of influencing north korea so i think right now the situation is very different we have the new western educated the leader of north korea we have a liberal and progressive president of south korea we have the president of the united states was known for his unconventional approach to international relations
5:16 am
so there is a window of opportunity so moscow and beijing join the same sions and that's why the process has been jumpstarted so i'm very optimistic about what is going on and it has been long overdue for north and south koreans to and the war the armistice regime was sustainable for sixty five years but now it's time to turn it into the peace regime and if there is peace there is no need for weapons of mass destruction i think it's very simple where we see what does happen certainly in the coming months maybe even years to the moment that it petroff there joining us from can breath thanks for your time sir. german chancellor angela merkel has also visited washington d.c. for a brief meeting with the u.s. president she hopes to persuade trying not to impose new u.s. tariffs of european steel and alum in the exports top of merkel's agenda was the preservation of the iran's nuclear deal which trump wants to abandon down estabrook has more from the american capital. well engle merkel came to the white house today
5:17 am
as sort of a tag team with emanuel mccrone earlier in this week to try to convince president trump to stay in the iran nuclear deal and to not end those exemptions on tariffs on aluminum in and steel in both cases it's unknown what the president might do during a press conference this afternoon in the white house merkel mentioned as did mccrone that the iran nuclear deal is not perfect it's a framework that can be built on but the president made no commitment either way as to whether or not he will stay in that deal on tariffs again merkel said that the president said that he made no commitment as to whether or not he would extend those exemptions on the tariffs the deal with steel and aluminum and in both cases merkel said it is now up to the president it's important to keep in mind that these are two nations that have a very close relationship with the united states as emmanuel mccrone mentioned earlier in the week that this is
5:18 am
a familial relationship that they might not agree on everything but there are things that these countries do still agree upon and they are still very strong allies well still ahead here on the all just. below the breadline voiceover the argentinians all struggling to make ends meet. also histories of the us and through could this be one of the world's largest mass graves. the sport bikes to stop and hits a warm day after promising to drive with full control. the leaders of the association of southeast asian nations will notice. a gathering in singapore this weekend to discuss a wide range of issues well let's get more this from our correspondent in singapore
5:19 am
florence levy she's at the summit we do understand that there was a working dinner with the heads of state on friday florence i mean also seems seemed to be top of the agenda. well just a correction there we're not at the summit we are in singapore but we were denied accreditation to attend the summit to cover the summit but we do know that the leaders as you said as you mentioned held a working dinner on friday night and they've issued a joint statement so we know that in that statement world security was one of the themes that the leaders mentioned now and this is something that the talk about the challenges that they need to tackle head on they talked about cyber threats violent extremism climate change and of course there is the territorial dispute in the south china sea in which china is a claimant country and the member states have a already agreed to draw up a code of conduct this is how they're tackling this issue this code of conduct is
5:20 am
being drafted at the moment it's on that they're not expecting it to be concluded at the end of this year but it is something that they are working on and of course the economy was an important topic is one of the largest economic zones in the world so there was a commitment to deepen economic integration as well as strive for greater economic growth but if there is one area in which austrian member states have been criticized for not doing enough it is in promoting and protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms on the block largely stood by in silence when cambodia clamp down on independent media and effectively wiped out its political opposition by dissolving its main opposition party and jailing political leaders and also there was very little sense show also off the philippine so-called war on drugs in which ten in which thousands were killed in extrajudicial killings and then the the ongoing conflicts in myanmar fighting has intensified in christian state in the
5:21 am
north thousands have already been displaced and there is the ongoing humanitarian crisis in rakhine state where seven hundred thousand muslim or hindu have already fled since august to escape persecution by the military so there have been calls by human rights activists to take on a greater role in protecting human rights movement will even let you fall over and so in singapore thank you. they knew he was secular state mike compare has been meeting nato counterparts in brussels just hours after being sworn in nato secretary-general un stoltenberg said the trip was a testament to the importance of the alliance and the commitment to the united states in the coming hours pompei is set to begin to tour of the middle east making stops in saudi arabia jordan and israel. now assad led coalition air strike has reportedly killed two who theme leaders in yemen's capital city state television is reporting that he's interior ministry was targeted in sanaa earlier in april rebel

5:23 am
and balances raced to pick up the wounded. guys suddenly ran in this direction to the fence they threw stones at the soldiers then the israelis opened heavy fire there are many injuries. there really is a feeling here that people have lost their fear israel has said it will shoot the ball they get right up to the border and the people here will tell you they have absolutely nothing left to lose. earlier in the day a small victory for these young boys israeli forces had warned the protestors over a speakerphone in arabic to move back from the fence. when they didn't. to deal with the tear gas homemade gas masks and now being sold it could demo on how to use them these young men part of a generation who grew up under the blockade there are no jobs no opportunities they are stuck here as. we get power from

5:41 am
says is illegally occupying it. is head of politics and international relations at the university of westminster he says china's relationship with pakistan is influencing india's position. since last year india has been very cautious about china but more than that in also recognize that if it has tension with china then china will become even more close to pakistan already is and therefore there was a strategy on part of indian government which of course very different to the indian government would like that india rather than challenging china almost back out there and was very careful the use the language of measurement and then recently of course indian government also passed a circular asking if not to meet the dalai lama all these indicated to china that in those keen on having this is an informal summit of course what would happen is strong macho leaders eventually meeting both of them very nationalist both of them disliking minorities both of them suspicious of foreign holders of and trying to
5:42 am
sort of reduce tensions but really it can be reduced or not we'll have to wait and see if any government or military unlikely to react off usually because they would not want to alienate china and they would be hoping that this informal summit remains informal in concrete comes out of it and that the tension between india and china which is radio will be under under the one that was this but partisan would have an anxiety because of the defend itself largely from us and with donald trump making it very clear that it still believes that doesn't you know haven't done enough for to fight against extremism and terrorism but it depends heavily on china so they would want this to remain more often or sort of shaking of hands agreement here and there but nothing substantial so pakistan would remain anxious about it the u.k. government was recently forced to apologize after many elderly people from the caribbean were threatened with deportation and denied public services the so-called windrush scandal opened up a debate to britain's relationship with its former colonies where the descendants
