10:04 am
. there is a break down into official contract between the government and the people. the governments are not delivering for the people, but the benefits of economic growth are going to those who are ready to reach on the poor continue to the poor. and the marginalized, continue to be marginalized with many african nations facing mid to security threats. relentless humanitarian disasters and millions of young people with no prospects. reducing the number of crews might be a tall order for the african union. mom it is i with that report his line for us now at the i you summit in addis ababa so covered. and coups mohammad. i want to flip that with the the, the coven side of things. your report? talk to about the low vaccination rights across africa. i'd like to know more about why, why has there been such a struggle to get people vaccinated? well, there's a problem with the roll out. come all the, there's been a significant raise in the number of the amount of all the stuff is coming to the

10:06 am
vaccinated and that is a very low number. and it goes right against the recommendations of the world health organization. right. and a quick word on, well democracy i guess, and coo, which happened, you know, we can look at it as the fact that there have been 5 qu, than african countries in recent history. but i wonder if the a you can even do that, can they look at it as an overall problem of military takeovers or you know, really does each country have its own nuances? well, better people of in speaking to here, the diploma to go that he tell us the best structural problems and that many african countries and african leaders have adopted elections just as you know, a calendar item that's done every 5 years. there's very little scrutiny of that kind of ability, full selections, and that is where they say the problem lies. just hold it holding elections every for 5 years. it's not going to hockey for many african countries. what people
10:07 am

10:09 am
council members, which came up with their own statement read out by the u. s. embassy. the cost at the council's ongoing silence is too high. it will embolden the dpr k to further defy the international community. your chinese colleague said that the u. s . needs to do more, and he specifically referred to the her noise summit and the singapore summit, which president trump had with the supreme leader kim. so is it time for president biden to get directly involved in the diplomacy? united states has made clear that we are willing to meet with the north koreans without pre conditions. but before we can, can met our president to meeting, we need to have a, a better sense of what there is to achieve. the united states would clearly like the security council to take a tougher stand on pyongyang,
