2:06 pm
summit is quickly turned to anger. these protesters near the u.s. embassy in seoul leaving little doubt about their feelings towards the u.s. president. the u.s. unilaterally pulled out of the north korea u.s. summit and we're angry about that and we hope the u.s. returns to the dialogue will immediately. this is what's provoked the anger a letter from donald trump to kim jong un blaming quote open hostility from the north seemingly a u.-turn is just a day before trump had hinted the summit would take place. in north korea the reaction figuratively speaking hasn't been as explosive as some might have thought it was. these tunnels at a nuclear test site were destroyed as
2:07 pm
a gesture of goodwill the dust is barely settled before trump penned his missive but despite that there is still openness here to talk. stuck in the middle east this man south korea's president mean j.n. has been treading a diplomatic tight rope to broker the talks but even he was caught off guard saying he was quote perplexed by the cancellation. china appears to be the big winner from this development nervous about how the deal would affect its role in the region beijing could now hold the key to future talks. told you china has always played a positive and constructive role on north korea's nuclear issue we have no i all tyria motives on news or. what happens now could come down to hubris as much as anything for one has staked a lot on this summit. for more of the story we have marcus kind from the german
2:08 pm
institute for international and security fairs with us hi marcus friday for joining us was this a strategic move or an impulsive decision i would say it was a well coming emergency exit from the trouble in a situation because at the end of the day it was about what means denuclearization and i think trump and ministration to realize that there was some kind of misunderstanding for the trumpet ministration the comprehensive verifiable and immediate denuclearization of north korea would be the starting point of any negotiations involving north koreans it would be the ending point of an integration in negotiations if ever and that has been over paper during the euphoria of the summits and the trump of new situations realized that was that was difficult to bridge this gap so where is the trumpet ministration had it in its korea policy good question i think we're back couple of weeks ago i think the top agenda top of the of the agenda really remains
2:09 pm
a question of denuclearization not unification of korea but the question is what does it really mean and how to accomplish with this thing and i think it's and security guarantees for north korea will play a key role here we saw in that piece that north korea sent a letter returned saying it is still came to meet with donald trump at any time why does. pyongyang still want to keep those doors open or does it i think the north korean government has reacted quite reasonable i think we have to go back couple of weeks ago where they could. and north korean government was on the have you presho due to economic sanctions authorized by the u.n. security council which still exist and confronted with military threats by the trump and the treasury sold it to levels to leverage is still exist a lot of has become miserable even for the nomenklatura on pure and young and i think that the north korean government has an interest in remaining in touch all it
2:10 pm
can take with the term but ministration so north korea has become the voice of reason and all this in a way in a way where it is this all we china very good question i think china is back and seems it seems that it had lost control during the last couple of weeks or did you do the close cooperation between south korea and north korea on the one hand and north korea united states on the other hand and he was communal and was i would say even forced to travel to china twice in the last four weeks to explain his policy and now it seems china has made very clear to him that he's allowed to approach the united states both on terms which would in china's interest and he is the key question is what is the future of the u.s. military presence in south korea i think nobody expects a full withdrawal complete withdrawal of within full siebel future may be and. is for their old change or
2:11 pm
a tremendous reduction we should say of course china traditionally a close ally of north korea all right marcus time from the german institute for international security affairs thank you very much for your and your right. now some other stories making news around the world the netherlands and australia say they are holding russia responsible for shooting down malaysia airlines flight m.h. seventeen really four years ago the announcement is likely to lead to legal action it comes after investigators said the missile that brought down the plane over eastern ukraine came from a russia based military unit all two hundred ninety eight passengers and crew were killed moscow rejects the accusation. in canada fifteen people have been injured in an explosion in the toronto suburb mississauga police are searching for two men suspected of having detonated an improvised explosive device inside a restaurant police say the three people who were admitted to the hospital in critical condition are now stable all right g.d.p. are if you don't know what you're here in europe you will as of today has more now
2:12 pm
on europe's new data protection law that's right as of today many europeans feel they're getting their lives back at least the digital part of it the e.u. has recognised that personal data is fry that's and belongs to the individuals so as of today every e.u. citizen can demand that companies like facebook google or amazon tell us what kind of personal data they hold on us what they do with it and have it corrected or even deleted whether you use the internet to search for information connect with friends or simply to do your shopping going online means sharing personal information but in many cases it's unclear exactly what happens to that data who has access to it what can companies do with it the new e.u. legislation aims to address some of these issues. under the
2:13 pm
new rules companies will only be allowed to collect data relevant to their services so whether out for example won't be allowed to access your address book of photographs. the new regulations also afford individuals the right to launch a complaint with a supervisory authority in their own country instead of potentially having to challenge a foreign company abroad those violating data protection rules will face harsher fines instead of the maximum three hundred thousand euros in germany companies will face up to twenty million euros in penalties or four percent of annual turnover whichever is bigger for facebook that'd be one point three billion euros. the new regulation requires companies and website operators to pay closer attention to what they do with their users information. and remaining legal anomalies likely to be settled in the courts in the coming years. consumer watchdogs have welcomed
2:14 pm
the neurons and say they give individuals more control over their personal information. as our correspondent go matters caught up with vera hughes commissioner for justice and consumers is what it says commissioner you have fought long and hard for this how significant are the changes we're about to see that are significant changes for the citizens of the e.u. because even them to be better protected and to have under control what's happening to their privacy and i think that this is a good step mark zuckerberg was recently here and said his company would fully comply now big company seemed well prepared how concerned should small businesses be small businesses in germany are concerned because i receive a lot of mails from them and of course they should take the necessary preventive measures but for many small businesses which do not process data is that a core business they should do some necessary arrangements which are not not very
2:15 pm
big or not very demanding so the companies should assess. level of risk which is their far for the data of people and of course mark about coming back to the big ones he could not answer otherwise i cannot imagine him to say no we do not care about the e.u. rules. vice a versa he sat there we will fully comply and we will also apply the european standards for protection of private aid to other mobile is so i am quite curious whether you believe him i always believe till i have strong reason not to believe so we will attack or they are doing so it's quite a set of data it's very complex regulation are we making it too tough for smaller companies for the business environment in europe i think that the g. as of one important feature it has to be applied in a proportionate to
2:16 pm
a proportionate to the level of risk and i spoke about it before if the company does not have the processing of data as a core business if they do not sell the data if they do not make money on the privacy of people they should to cause some some minimal kind of measures but if the companies are monetize the data of people they shoot to kill if something better to the people and it's the better protection so proportionate application of d.p.i. it is necessary and also i would add common sense because i heard a lot of incredible stories about how g.d.p. will be applied it's not necessary to go any king are you hoping this could become a global standard yes i do hope that europe will. serve as a good example of how a we can and should protect the privacy of people this full respect to every
2:17 pm
individual and it will be very important that the europeans also should show to the rest of the world that they can use their new. rights of better protection of privacy thank you very much indeed for a court in the us has ordered south korean electronics giant some song to pay five hundred thirty nine million dollars to its rival apple the american tech firm to choose some some of copying its design for smartphones some some have argued it should pay much less in damages but the court sided with apple awarding about half of the one billion dollars apple has demanded the ruling is a win for the i phone maker in the long running legal battle between the two sects firms. all that spring in our financial correspondent genoud to my log in a friend for john now five hundred thirty nine million dollars dollars from one
2:18 pm
electronic company to the next can you put that figure in context for us is there's a lot of money for this kind of trades. yes so this could be the final word between in a seven year battle between the two tech giants and of course depending on whether samsung decides to appeal but this verdict today had to do with the damages now so this of course was an infringement case that had to do with all of the features that we know from the flagpole and of the two companies like like the layout of the apps that greatly out of the apps as well as the rounded the rounded corners of the phone but you know apple wanted one billion dollars and it's based that figure on the sales that samsung had made to selling the infringing phones while samsung wanted twenty eight million dollars basing that number on the money it had made that was directly attributable to the parts that were infringing so the jury had basically to decide whether to award damages based on sales of the whole product if
2:19 pm
only parts were copied so the position that the courts to the court took today seem to be in between those two poles even though it seemed more favorable to apple we still don't know what the guiding principle should be in terms of determining damages in patent infringement case of like before. you know it's friday the last day of trading today on what was a pretty miserable week on the markets today has been pretty upbeat income person. yes well the market drop yesterday was due to the consolation of the north korean summit but since we've heard more positive noises coming out of pyongyang indicating that the door was open to a resolution but investors have taken that as a sign that not all hope is lost also the closely watched german business confidence index is out indicating about german business leaders are feeling slightly more positive after months of waiting optimism. in frankfurt thank you.
