12:02 pm
a new president. so you will becomes present in a couple of days, i believe on may 10th. right, and i think the idea is to sort of signal for the south koreans, you know, we're still here yet, but seriously, campuses around the north koreans abundance in the past. if i remember correctly when brock obama was inaugurated, there was a test and i think when pumpkin, hey, wasn't going to present south korea. there was a test drive train with a long history of sort of doing this. and it's kind of a mixed signaling and bullying. now i've done a new testament since 2017. you may recall for a short time, donald trump, for president. and there were sort of an effort to reach out to the north koreans for 2 years. it looked like there might be some kind of a taunt breakthrough in the north korean sort of hell off, but that really didn't go anywhere the north instantly put much on the table to be fair. the americans didn't really either. and so the whole thing kind of came apart, and if you're north korea, you're really not seeing much movement on the go station table. and so your, i presume the thinking is something like we need to keep on escalating, right? north trans can't get a decent deal out of south korean united states and they're going to want to really bulk up on the deterrence. and that means
12:03 pm

12:04 pm
especially because of their just out some 28000 us forces inside of south korea. but there have not been any nuclear weapons stationed on south korean soil since the early ninety's. and that was at the order of the president at the time, george h. w bush of the u. s. is also trying, but so far, unsuccessfully to get north korea to return to the bargaining table without preconditions about efforts to end it's nuclear weapons program. the current leader has yet to respond to those overtures. one thing that is clear of the white house is already said in light of, of these reports that the u. s. president's plans to visit south korea and japan later in the month of may will not do me put off just because of this a possible threat. ukraine is taking precautions as russia rehearse, as for its annual victory day parade. monday marks the 77th anniversary of nazi

12:19 pm
france stronger by working together for more on this. let's bring in french journalist and unless pierre ascii, he joins us via skype from paris. we. one of his key messages was one of unity, wasn't it working together? we heard that phrase come up time and time again. how difficult will it be for a manual micron to unify france? well, you could feel from the tone of his speech that this was not a joyful event. it was a very serious and crisis minded speech in which he was taking into account both the international context. he referred several times to the war in ukraine and to the continuation of terrorism and other. ringback problems, but also the disunity that was shown in the french nation during the election campaign and he is there was an something implicit in his speech is that he will
12:20 pm
change. the method of governing is been very much criticized during his 1st mandate for a very solitary exercise for sometimes what is described as arrogance. he promised a new method and i think this was the, the key message to the french people was with the methods of governing will change . and he came to power festival a 5 years ago with a big agenda of reform. the student, he will, we see re enactment of those reforms is really going to push them this time he has been elected with something very controversial in his program, which was the postponement of the retirement age to 65. it's 62 at the moment in france, and this has been opposed very much by the other candidates. so it remains to be seen when he will introduce this reform. and this will certainly lead to a lot of opposition from some of the unions and from of the political party. so
12:21 pm
this is the main reform agenda that he has for the next phase. but the, the other thing he announced in his speech was really changing the democratic environment of france in, in, in a more, in, in, in the less top down a methodology for us is known for a very centralized power and the provinces of frost. so always resent the power of paris is promised to change that he has positioned himself as he is one of the main west and leaders to talk to russian president vladimir putin over the war in ukraine. how does that go down in france with domestic public? it's been appreciated that the french are a very proud nation than they, they like to see their leaders playing a role in international affairs. so on one side, people appreciated the fact that
12:22 pm
a president macro was the main western interlocutor of president putting on the other side. obviously it hasn't produced results. prison put in was very and a, you know, not giving away anything to president mccord. so this dialogue at some stage became too heavy to carry without any results. so in the new phase of this war, in the new presidency, it remains to be seen what, how much involvement prison michael will have in dialogue with moscow. he had president put in on the phone 2 days ago, and this again didn't produce much results. so, and, but he referred a lot to the you quinn war and he said we have to give democracy the means to win. that means a get ukraine on the winning side and that, that was a clear message from his speech. it was in that speech of the manual mac wrong bank
12:23 pm

12:25 pm
has been able to do this in part with misleading posts on social media. a fact checking group says that ferdinand marco's junior, has been able to benefit from. mm hm. was the biggest benefit of misinformation on social media. whereas in contrast, the vice president, lenny robledo, his closest rival, was the biggest victim in the campaign of this information. now, he has been able to do this also in part because he has a tactic of avoiding hard questions from the media. he pre selects who gets to attend his conferences. he avoids, he's very selective about will. he gives interviews to and you know, just as an addict, aren't we applied for accreditation to cover the mark was junior rally, but we were denied the rally. and the other reason is his partnership with sarah to target, who's the daughter of the incumbent president. she herself is running for vice president. and even though voters vote for these positions separately, he's been able to leverage on the deterred a strong role in the south and combined that with the mock or strong hole in the
12:26 pm
north. but of course, if you speak to a supporters, they'll say that it is message of unity. even though it's simple and it's ambiguous, resonates with under my own dog and has been following many robledo who's also holding her final pre election rally bursey, thousands of thousands of people really coming in after days and weeks of campaigning for a precedent that they'd never have done this before on so whether this will actually result to votes remain to be seen. but there is a strong sense of hope they're seeing that basically they're campaigned, they're push for vice president len, you read it to become the nest wreck. the next president is more than just an act of defiance. against a 5 years of president would be good at their dis policy, but a push back. they said primarily against the possible return of a marcus presidency. one person has died in protest and democratic republic of congo, at least 13 others were injured after police dispersed demonstrations in the capital
