the even more sophisticated f. 35 lightning purchased from the u.s. i think we've seen a lot of interest in the after 35 so beyond that i mean that's very good for our business of course by think it's very good for the security of the region south korea's liberal president moon j.n. is overseeing this expansion even as he pursues his policy of reconciliation with north korea which continues to develop its nuclear arsenal. this is the negative outcome of the current administration south korea has already said peace has arrived but this puts south korea in an illogical position because unless north korea denuclearize as they can't be peace on the peninsula. north korea has blamed south korea's military buildup in part for its testing of more sophisticated missiles in recent months and it comes as questions are raised about the long term
7:37 pm
commitment of south korea's traditional ally the united states. the sudden announcement by u.s. president donald trump to pull troops out of syria has alarmed to many here it's reinforced the belief that south korea has to become more self-reliant militarily especially when its neighbors are rapidly expanding their armies. japan under its conservative prime minister shinzo has increased its military spending for 8 consecutive years that's jew in part to the north korean threat but also to the increasing size of china's military. who put in until the root causes north korea's nuclear weapons development and its continued threats to its neighbors that's why south korea and japan have to prepare and there's china's military buildup and its expansionist policies. north east asian neighbors seemingly committed to an arms race that no one wants to lose rob mcbride out his era song on south korea. well

time now for sports he's lia thank you stan bulgaria's prime ministers demanding the head of their football association resign after fans made nazi salutes and racist chance at england players during monday's european qualifier the game was stopped twice after england players reported crowd incidents to the officials
7:40 pm
monkey chants were aimed at england's black players and some fans held up shirts mocking the wafers respects campaign to end racism and football parts of the stadium were already closed but ball garia serving a punishment for racist abuse in previous games loudspeaker announcements warned fans that the game would be abandoned if they didn't stop they did manage to get the match finished with england winning 6 nil i'm incredibly proud of all of the players and all of the staff i don't think. it's close we could be criticised for not going far enough but i think we've made a huge statement and. frankly we were in an impossible situation to get it right to the satisfaction of everybody well gary is captain of a top of did not get go to the dressing room at half time as he pleaded with fans to stop the racist abuse but in the press conference afterwards bulgaria's coach said he was unaware of any problem so today he stood still constant threat of mucha
7:41 pm
i was totally concentrated on the games i didn't actually have anything but i just talked to the english press offices and i told them that if it is proven to be true she then we will have to be ashamed and apologize for it but once again firstly it has to be proven to be true this is if a captain spoke to the fans it's probably because the fans were unhappy with the way the team was performing which was all right let's bring in our sports correspondent lee wellings live from london we you a for have not commented on this yet so does that maybe hint to needing a stronger stance against racism. or you worry for always investigate these things and usually they take action the question is is the action strong enough the answer a lot of people would tell you is no now they have this 3 point protocol in place in fact it's been in place for a decade but not used enough we rarely see it and it was used during the. game of course the tunnel announcement we heard warning the fines when the racism
7:42 pm
was 1st heard in the 1st half then the players taken off the pitch as the racism persisted if the racism had continued to an extent very have seen a situation where and this is very where we'd have had a much abandonment of course the racism did continue it just wasn't as prominent as it was in the 1st half so you wonder if the officials were actually just trying to find a way to get the much british the england players despite this vile racist abuse actually wanted to get the much finished they wanted to win it in fact to carry on the pitch install and not rely on your wife for taking action in that way but surely it has come to the town where you weigh far have to be stronger the fines are not working their paltry sum to terms that was $20000.00 that's what macedonia were fined for racism against england players earlier in the year the stadium closures don't work the kind of action they need to look towards is to be in
