5:18 am
that a closer relationship would be involved, countries interests the 2 ladies, exchange letters on the 77th anniversary of the korean peninsula. the liberation from japanese rule, both north and south career, a mocking. the day japan ruled all of korea from 910 until the end of world war 2 and 945. 5 years later they was the korean war, followed by partition. let's bring in rob mcbride, who joins us live from sole in south korea. hello there, rob 1st talk us through this closer relationship, the russian president, letting me put him once with north korea. that's right, it is an interesting letter coming at an interesting time. russian president vladimir putin talking about expanding bilateral relations about areas of common interest about north korea and russia. it seems working together to improve the security situation. he says in northeast asia, you know it's,
5:19 am
it's interesting that both of these leaders faced relative isolation in the international community. kim jung guns of course, has been long standing, provide them in who tend it's been far more recent, but no less consequential. so that does seem almost inevitably lety about the to lead is being drawn closer relationship and it does come with it's interesting timing on the korean peninsula. this liberation day. it is being celebrated in the 2 careers we're waiting to see from north korea just walked sort of events, they will be staging to mark this day. the north korean state run television is carrying special programming. we are waiting to see whether it's going to be marked by any mass events or march or military had display. of course, north korea would seem to have not to celebrate this year having just overcome the common enemy of koby 19 didn't report his 1st cases of what he euphemistically called fever until mid may. and since then, there's been
5:20 am
a rapid expansion of the sickness through the population. millions of people it seems becoming infected, but very recently announcing that it has been defeated. and also using that opportunity to blame south korea for the initial outbreak for introducing cove it into the north, which has done nothing to help frosty relations across the dmc. now i can imagine rober, how are people in the south korea where you are celebrating the anniversary today? yeah, i mean, this is an important event and obviously it is a national holiday public holiday. here you go, all the conservative president here has held an event outside the front of the presidential office. he is a highly conservative leader with a conservative administration. it's been to, i've noted by media here that in his speech, marking this event, he mentioned the word freedom $33.00 times, talking about it seems economic freedom by political freedom, the relations with the free world with there's been a lot of anticipation about whether he might make any announcements to try to
5:21 am
restart relations negotiations with north korea during his inauguration a few months ago he talked about a possibly an old daisha plan put in place to help north career economically. if the north were to abandon its nuclear arsenal. well, again, he returned to that scene in this speech saying that south korea would be willing to support north korea with various economic measures if the north of which you embark on de nuclear eyes ation. but without giving any kind of detail. so it does seem as though there is nothing in the offing or we're not really anticipating any great at breakthroughs. also interestingly mentioned in japan now they're both north and south korea use this event and they, it's a shed celebration. i bowed to defeating japan at the end of the 2nd world war and being released from the yoke of imperialism from japan. but interestingly, against that y'all talking about closer relations with japan. when facing the shad threat, it seems both from north korea and to a lesser extent from china. so interesting and controversially,
