this is pretty much the first step that north korea has made toward coming together with south korea it does seem like it's the south that is making the most effort why is it more important we want to take a more leading and where the rule for people if. he's making every moment for dialogue. you told c.n.n. it was trump's tough talk that brought the north koreans to open dialogue but say all that there was some kind of a combination in which trump closed the door there for the north koreans had to turn to. reach north korea is coming to south korea but there's some other some other reviews you know which. come to south korea because north korea might want to have some kind of economic cooperation with the south korea well maybe. sold in washington but south korea knows all those you know intentions from north korea but
we don't it. is do you feel like trump's contribution was intentional to bring the two countries together are an intentional base a big plant or was it not i remember going with the united states directly they would have not come to south korea. to even north korea comply i am i heard you say in an interview to c.n.n. back in september that if the u.s. had spent at least one fifth of effort put into the iran deal on the north korean issue is the whole problem could have been resolved do you think the u.s. is reluctant to bring about a plausible solution to the issue. you know if you had to pay more attention to. the north korean nuclear issue i personally believe the us code can come up with a solution but. to use his pain too much attention for military no solutions but i hope the us would pay more attention to the peaceful solution to the north
korean nuclear problem. presently and you right now have been praising president trump for his role in kicking off they enter korean talks why do you get truong credit for this specifically i mean not just the us but who russia and china have also been calling for talks and say since the very beginning actually. very simple because north korea want to play havoc with the us is returning. would rather choice for north korea to have the choice to. come to south korea you know and mostly know we're hoping the north korea can have. some kinds of mediation of south korea so obviously this talks between the two koreas. january they've been viewed as a huge breakthrough i mean the last time it happened was back in two thousand and fifteen and since then things were deteriorating how do you make sure things go
well this time i want to slide back into another blame game. i'm not really optimistic about the future of into korean relations but the what i've been arguing is that we should make every effort to you know that happens if it is not really matter of you know of community projects in a projection but these you know our mandate to what we know square to fold to control the plantation or break right now and well while back i will continue talking to children during a special adviser for the national security and foreign policy to the president of south korea will talk more about ways out of the nuclear crisis on the korean peninsula stay with us.
runs up the blood flow to the best out of the jaws of. the concepts is preparing to perform i actually prepare myself to die i. don't know so i need what i do know sorry trust me. as most of. you. in the home will start turning to her mom. this country was. really good so and. so we'll see if you think. it was any good with us here. yes. deep machine. to machine.
b.s. i never knew. the pentagon recently released its new nuclear posture review its critics are stunned not only the use of nuclear weapons is now more thinkable but it's also been threshold for their use is being lowered dr strangelove would be proud is the world facing another gain joyous arms race. in america a college degree requires a great deal. paying a decades long dead. studying so hard it requires trying to. go through humiliation to enter an elite society. and paci dead sometimes quite literally. want other true colors of universities. in the
u.s. . to. be everybody stephen both. come in with guns. right american first and just george bush in our view this is my buddy famous financial guru where she's a little bit different. going to the well you know with all the drama happening in our country and. everyday americans. we start to bridge the gap this is the great american people.
and we're back with children little special advisor for the national security and foreign policy to the president of south korea discussing how the nuclear standoff between north korea and the rest of the world is going to play out now president moon is hoping to bring washington n.p.r. new onto the negotiating table but wait here this has nuclear but is bigger talk from traum than kim jong goon calling him a loser if the u.s. and north korea finally hold talks are all those insults going to be just tossed aside and forgotten about completely like they never happened nor will it be a mutual gretsch what do you think one matters is the national interest nothing of the leaders emotion therefore you've. can get together they would come up with a much more practical discussions on the sea of new creation of north korea to for
yes you know possibly this could have a some kind of emotional discussed on those in the exchange of hostile remarks to but i personally believe that they will be able to overcome such a kind of passed through by pushing for national interest and you know there is a common interest of mankind is that south koreans are coordinating closely with washington cosell thing before making any move why south korea need washington's blessing to engage in diplomacy with the north i mean it's koreans talking to koreans why wait for american permission the people who have a we have alliances relationship with united states we have them a conclusion south korea and north korea regards american troops in south korea as a source of a hostile intent in policy and north korea therefore we have the kinds of standards between the north korea and the united states but we hide in the bed alliance with
the united states because of the berry strip coming from north korea cape deal for you not due to new choice but just to coordinate with the united states the whole point is this a free champ and north korea has a no no square kinds contends a nuclear weapons then but we have a nuclear weapons and we have n.p.t. reteam nonproliferation regime which would not allow us to have you know the nuclear weapons and then what is our choice but to rely on to make a nuclear brother the ultimate enemy we should be intent on wisdom what so does that mean that for instance if america tells you not to talk to north korea then while north korea is willing to talk to south that you want to talk to them. no and because of this a bit of american interest and we want to have told with the north korea but knows when i was not coming close and north korea was arguing that this was devoted to north korean national interest these are in the getting rid of american military
a nuclear threat from the nucleus flat that is why do you want to protect the whole wheezy know the united states but you haven't you noticed it was not responding to north korea you notice it has been arguing that a nest north korea feels very concrete steps towards a nuclear jason it would not have a dialogue with north korea then good word to north koreans are coming to south korea of course north korean intention was to be such that the that or now we have a nuclear weapons now from the position of nuclear weapons state would do well to talk with south korea but south korea will never accept that position because south korean position is basically a i will go to denuclearize north korea ok if and no matter what we. knowledge what we are always up north korean nuclear weapons capability but our goal is to to keep the nuclear rods in north korea that was speaking about the sanctions you set yourself that the current very tough sanctions on north korea
aren't working since it's such an isolated self-reliant society that is used to hardship so what are the sections for then i mean what do they have and should they be there at all. now government position is very clear that sanctions and precious instrument to bring north korea to dialogue and negotiation table therefore we are not pushing the policy of sense and for the sake of sentence ok therefore it's time for north korea to really think about it one very clearly our government number one priority can dial when negotiating but north korea has not in the going and the attempt to have a dialogue and negotiation with just south korea as well as united states as to why self-hate been joining international efforts to put the sanctions on north korea but if north korea just come back to the dial the negotiation table we may know lose an hour in
a sentence when north korea maybe international community may also roots in its ascension from those korea of course north korea to take a very concrete moves toward denuclearization starting with the freezing of its nuclear and missile there to these two thing you ask can decide on some kind of hostile unilateral action against north korea without consulting say well for us and what kessel did to rein in the american hocks alferez and made it very clear no more while under the korean peninsula no military action without prior consultation and agreement with us will not be accepted. the u.s. and south korea life's allies cannot take a military and sometimes they can make this its ally south korea suffer from immense collateral damages given all of these things ok we'll hoping that the u.s.
would not take a military action we cannot rule out the post lead that you nice to take a military action but the united states to do expect you know who's opposition from south korea and the controversial missile shield that has been deployed in south korea already with the deployment help advance to go shave what the north or hinder progress. i would say that this has not produced any profound impact going into korean talks so these become a major. hot issue between china and the u.s. in the south korea being century to the north korea criticize the deployment of the thousand said it was has not become any major impediment to into korean talks the u.s. and south korea are not the only ones involved in affairs for instance china seems to have a lot of influence over appealing on what kind of help can south korea connaught
from beijing here of beijing and so do share a common interest in making peace and stability in the korean peninsula in denuclearized in north korea and for story in a peaceful resolution of the nuclear issue through the tire when you were safe and therefore i don't see any major difference between beijing and sold on the sill north korean korea. it's just in your personal opinion do you feel like beijing truly. has so much influence on north korea as everyone seems to think are it's an illusion. i see the future yes it is true that china has a truth influence over north korea but china cannot influence to the east of the regime and still seek to kill the north korea that is to be clear china can make a huge influence of the north korean economy and the areas not with regards to the
regime city to national security no scry now the ultimate goal of dialogue that is being pursued right now is that if you advocate is i imagine total reunification the north and south korea are so vastly different in terms of economy technology perhaps even mentality any of reunification will be a huge shop can't say all for that for instance i'm just thinking about you know i'm just thinking about reunification of germany the east germany is germany still behind the west economically after thirty years of being together. you know we have several models of unification one is a german model in which he you know south korea kudos' of north korea or vice versa another more than the me small korean you've. come from the major military conflict what you could be consensual unification between north and south our
government policy to you know see. our government policy you to see consensual consensual unification therefore we are hoping that you know so sonos sit together and try to find out some peace who ways of unifying the korea eight meeting take a much longer time so if it does happen then when i mean will we have to wait for it came to grow old and die before a peaceful reunification can happen no no no we do not norm we do not know but the word we can do is we can promote exchange in cooperation with north korea we can build a trust with north korea and we can trade any minute you know making free for all people who do so because if we don't having legal unification we can push through. some formal corporation integration between north and selves ok there is our government put it. all right mr manning thank you very much for at this if you will
been talking to chung going on that special adviser to the president of south korea for foreign affairs and national security taken into the nuclear danger that looms over the korean peninsula that's it for at this edition of surf and car i'll see you next time. thank you. altie we have a great team we need to strengthen before the freefall world cold and your bets have been a legend to keep it so it's at the back. in
one thousand nine hundred two that must qualify for the european championships at the very last moment no one believed in us but we won and i'm hoping to bring some of that waiting spirit to the r.c.c. . recently i've had a lot of practice so i can guarantee you that peter schmeichel will be on the best fall since my last will come on that story three. thousand zero zero zero zero he didn't brush. life dr. no i left left left more left ok stuff that's really good. that's geysers financial survival they say money to develop. a plan to take it easy this is a central plank support dying a common kind of problem right now so i stopped. most people think just stand out in this business you need to be the first one on
dozens of. just hours before the winter olympics start in south korea. there are. more than seven hundred fifty thousand children in need of basic medical services in the iraqi city of mosul. republican lawmakers in the united states are threatening to cut funding global. program after a most widely used made.
headlines here. a last minute appeal from forty five russian. and preventing them from competing in the winter olympics has failed the court of arbitration for sport secretary general announced the ruling with just hours to go before the games get underway in south korea. gass arbitrators of considered the process created by the i.o.c. to establish an invitation list of russian athletes to compete as olympic athletes from russia would not be described as a sanction but rather as an eligibility decision. applicants did not demonstrate that the manner in which two special commissions this study leashed by the i.o.c. was carried out in a discriminatory. so there you have it according to the court of arbitration for sport ridding the russian athletes of their olympic invitations isn't equal to
punishment and cas is perfectly happy with the criteria that the i.o.c. initially shows for these invitations the president of the world anti-doping agency is pleased he says that the timing is great and that all the clean athletes should now be reassured the i.o.c. are happy to they have applauded the verdict as you can see and this tweet though the russians are obviously totally devastated i don't know what to say i'm really disappointed i can't understand the cast decision first they cleared the athletes and now they say sorry you can't go to the olympics this is some kind of madness it's terrible not just for our athletes but for all of international sport did i expect kass to reach this decision fifty fifty especially after thomas buck in one of his later speeches pressured the court of arbitration for sport after ruled in our favor he was literally threatening the court he was almost saying he would
dissolve the court if it root again in favor of russian athletes coach albert dempsey and co who was by the way one of those to the i.o.c. was referring to all the things that were being said about the court of arbitration for sport ahead of the hearings including the statements by the president of the i.o.c. house of the decision is extremely disappointing and surprising care for. the i.o.c. we would never have expected this. decision. to meet. for reforms in the internal structure of costs here thomas bach was referring to the previous cas verdict and that requires a bit of background the forty seven russian athletes and coaches who were suing the international olympic committee were from two groups thirty two hadn't been
sanctioned by the odyssey investigators as a result of the russian doping scandal at all fifteen received a lifetime bans their medals were taken away by the i.o.c. a few months ago but then the very same court of arbitration for sport last week cancelled these lifetime bans the cassava traitors unanimously found that the evidence put forward by the you see in relation to this matter did not have the same weight in each individual case this is one in twenty eight cases the evidence collected was found to be insufficient to establish that's looking through violation it was committed. concerned due to insufficient evidence the appeals of held the sanctions and notes and the individual results achieved in such reinstated so the decision that we have right now completely contradicts the
previous one and this is a real disaster for the country the athletes both the ones who are still going to compete and young saying under a neutral flag and those who are banned the coaches the fans they are baffled by how unfair it could get. movement does not consider me an athlete who deserves to be a part of it without even providing an explanation i've never given a reason to doubt my own least. and my integrity. the games in korea were to be the first in my career together with my partner we've been working towards that this olympics for many years and it was my cherished dream. and i was shocked to lympics my
dream and i was working towards this goal throughout my entire sports career i've given no reasons to doubt that i'm crazy and. earlier i discussed the cast decision and what president it sets with sports columnist alan moore. it's no longer sports has been sports for a long time and it really comes down to the fact that the i.o.c. put their necks on the line by not going as hard as some people would have liked to people want to control the olympic movement and water of course as well these are not the u.k. idea of being u.s. anti doping agency doping they want to take control of the whole. money train but they want to go to rue however. it is political to a large degree because if we say that the i.o.c. are playing politics they want to keep control so they have to be seen to be very very strong yes mind you these athletes have never tested positive with me that they haven't doped however there are some who would not have doped but they've been
tarred with a brush that is completely wrong and feeds into this kind of geopolitical narrative that russia is bad and good let's beat them will stick it clean athletes can get banned for doping issues that have absolutely nothing to do with i suppose i should ask you what kind of president does it set for the world of sport i think what we what we can take from this in terms of precedent is that it doesn't really matter if you're clean or not it matters on first of all your passport that is what we're seeing now and we see it for a long time and also what the general narrative is because if it is that russia is bad and everything then they will be here and if russia is caught on the wrong side of a gang turf war which is happening right now in the world of anti doping which is a massive massive multi-billion dollar business. which is a multi multi billion dollar business russia is on the wrong side of that war. unless russia kind of you know kind of reposition itself this will only get worse.
however it's not a russian athletes participation in the olympics that's led to controversy the north korean team's visit to pyongyang trying has seen a rather angry reaction. and activists protested thursday as a north korean orchestra gave a sold out performance on the eve of the games they were holding placards reading no pyongyang at the olympics while the event is supposed to be about sport and peace it seems these games are becoming more about politics on the korean conflict .
today's military parade will show off the powerful status of the democratic people's republic of korea as long as hostile policies from the u.s. continue the mission of the korean people's army can never change. the united states of america will for you to stand shoulder to shoulder in our effort to bring maximum pressure to bear on north korea until that comes when the finally and permanent reverse of abandon their nuclear and ballistic missile and.
around seven hundred fifty thousand children are struggling to get basic medical services in the war torn iraq east city of mosul that's according to the un's children's rights body unicef and estimated seventy four million dollars are needed to rebuild health facilities for children that seven months after the euphoria that greeted the liberation of mosul from islamic state the iraqi city is still struggling to get back on its feet.
