12:02 am
cuba's new president has vowed to continue the socialist revolution as the nation turns the page on nearly six decades of castro rule miguel diaz canal has been sworn in by m.p.'s and how vanna to raul castro stepped down having completed ten years as president of canal is the first cuban leader born after fidel castro's nine hundred fifty nine revolution and also the first not to a fortunate. him on the globe the way he loves the people's mandate given to this legislature is to ensure the continuity of the cuban revolution in a crucial and historic moment marked by advances in the development of our economic and social model perfecting and strengthening our work in all aspects of the life of the nation. that america had a silly scene human joins us now from havana so continuity or change what sort
12:03 am
of president is expected to be. hello mary and look first of all i think it's very very important to keep in mind that while the castro era seems to be ending it's really not over yet and that was made very very clear both by the escamilla and raul castro at the national assembly today rone castro will stay on not only as the leader of the all powerful communist party but he will actually be overseeing all the major decisions that are still made and that was something that was hammered in over and over again and i will castro says he will not be leaving politics for at least another three years after the next communist party congress and so this candidate is going to be called governing in those tents with raul castro he is of a younger generation he is the loyal communist party cater loyal to the party loyal
12:04 am
to the revolution and of course loyal to raul castro just exactly how what kind of style he is going to do to use what will mark his presidency is still unknown that's what most people are waiting to see right so how have cubans that you've been speaking to reacted to the new man in charge. i would say that people are reacting to this very calmly without too much excitement. it's a kind of a way didn't see attitude lot of people weren't even watching the speeches on television it was a normal day people went to work a lot of people who weren't at work didn't bother to stay at home to watch on television satisfied to wait for the nightly news cast i would say mariam because they think they know that it is going to be at least in the in the short term a system of continuity with the communist party that guidelines still very much marking the pace of what the as colonel can do and in fact he will not be naming
12:05 am
his cabinet until july so we don't know yet who is going to accompany him how many new faces even we're going to see mary i'm all right for now thank you very much lucy and human our latin america and it's a following this story for us from havana so helen yeah see is a lecturer in economic and social history at the university of glasgow and joins us live now via skype thank you very much for speaking to us and so then just picking up on some of the points that our correspondent you see i was making there from havana how difficult is it going to be for diaz canel to consolidate his power when his predecessor raul castro continues to oversee the major decisions. i think it's important to point out that cuba doesn't actually have a sort of presidential system not united the president of cuba is not elected directly by the population and he is actually the president of the council of
12:06 am
states which is elected true the national assembly the equivalent of a parliament so formally least the leadership in cuba is more collective the power that the president of the council of st cuba has is even less as an individual then the prime minister votes or. so of decisions they can make and the other point to point out is that at me again to yes come out we'll be taking over the program of the economic and social reforms that's under way in cuba and have a speed implemented since two thousand and eleven and so saying he is job is to continue to oversee that process so what then will his biggest challenge be what does he need to deliver to the cuban people. yeah but i think the biggest challenge is today's economic there's many angles one of the most urgent needs is the
12:07 am
need to unify the two currencies that operate alongside each other in cuba and a cuban national press and a combustible that is and major challenges an extraordinarily complex task a problem to try and solve how they will be able to unify the current seats while at the same time and doing so without being at the detriment of anyone who has told a cuban who best of us in their deposits so raising the standard of living for all cubans not allowing the inequality to grow more than they had. the introduction of the private sector and obviously the product remittances and there's been a broken in upon it so trying to raise people up at the bottom of the efficiency in state enterprises cut back timothy inviting more foreign investment those who will challenge to us which he will face but they're not new challenges he's
12:08 am
inheriting bent round. thanks very much for putting it all into perspective for us appreciate your analysis from helen he joined us that and well now to our other top story this hour the south korean president lungi in says the north has expressed its commitment to complete denuclearization comes as u.s. president on electronic ones he'll walk away from planned talks with north korea's leader if and not fruitful the meeting is expected to take place next month or early in june cia director and secretary of state nominee might held a secret meeting with kim jong un in pyongyang earlier this month as positive an effort to lay the groundwork for talks trump says he hopes they'll be a success but adds that he is willing to call them off if not will the south korean president says his north korean counterpart kim jong un won't demand the withdrawal of u.s. soldiers as a precondition for denuclearize ation america's military presence in south korea has been a major sticking point to negotiations with pyongyang it's hoped the talks between
12:09 am
the korean leaders will smooth the way for trump summit with kim a diplomatic editor james bass is inside north korea with the latest. there's clearly plenty for both sides to continue to discuss one of the things they must work out is the venue for this historic summit where are they going to meet could it be here in pyongyang and some diplomats i've spoken to say that might be giving too much to the north korean side for a u.s. president to actually step foot in this country could it be in that the militarized zone where that intra korean summit is taking place in one week's time could it perhaps be in china in beijing again diplomats saying that that would effectively give china a seat at the table something the u.s. may not like there are other countries neutral countries that are offering to be a venue for the talks we have norway we have sweden one in the region that's been
12:10 am
mentioned is the capital of mongolia battle then you get what they might get out of a first summit most observers hope that there would be after a big meeting a process an ongoing process to deal with all the details but both sides would probably want something out of a meeting of this level and certainly the u.s. will be concerned about the three u.s. citizens of korean descent who are being held prisoner here in north korea president trump has already mentioned them and the fact that he's working to get their release well a phone hotline between north and south korea will be set up on friday second jan and president lungi in can plan a meeting next week lynn says they missed an official end to the korean war three years of fighting ended with an armistice in one hundred eighty three but there was never a formal peace agreement kathy novak has more from seoul. south korean president is continuing preparations for his summit with north korean leader kim jong un next
12:11 am
friday he has been speaking with executives of local media outlets at the presidential blue house it's part of a series of meetings designed to canvass the views of south korean community leaders and he told the group that the intercalary and summit must set the scene for a successful summit between the united states and north korea and that it must pave the way for denuclearization of the korean peninsula but many analysts have pointed out that historically north korea has taken a different view of what denuclearization might mean when compared to the interpretation in the united states or in south korea north korea for example might want it to can include the complete removal of u.s. troops from the korean peninsula but president moon has said he does not believe there is a difference in the definition he told the group that north korea has expressed a willingness to completely denuclearize and he said that it has not proposed any conditions that the u.s. would find it difficult to accept but he did seem to play down any hopes of major
12:12 am
concrete agreements being reached at the summit next week instead seeming to suggest it may be the first step in a bigger process. so frank genesee is the president and c.e.o. of the mansfield foundation which promotes cooperation between asian nations and the u.s. he joins us live now from washington it's very easy he makes for a good headline to say that the north is completely in favor of full scale denuclearization but then the question is whether there are different definitions of denuclearization and whether now we're going to see a misunderstanding of the arguments over semantics in the coming days and weeks. i think there are no real differences on the semantics but where you are exactly correct is that north korea's pledge to completely denuclearize a pledge which i believe kim jong un will deliver to president trump when they sit down together has always been contingent upon what they call the end of the u.s.
12:13 am
hostile policy the war needs to end there needs to be diplomatic normalization and peace there needs to be removal of sanctions and many other steps taken in order for the north koreans to feel comfortable with abandoning their nuclear weapons do you think there is a clear understanding of that in washington or should i say specifically by president trump well in washington for certain i'm less certain about president trump's grasp of all of the complexities of this very longstanding seventy year problem but when president trump sits down with kim jong il and i think he will there they're searching for an agreement in principle the president of the united states will pledge and and to the hostilities on the peninsula and his very presence at the summit meeting will signal what kind of a u.s. acceptance of the legitimacy of kim jong un as well as the legitimacy of his
12:14 am
government and in return i think the president will extract that promise that of course north korea would prefer to live on a peninsula without nuclear weapons but the devil will be in the details and the process will be long difficult and fraught with risk and do you think that i mean just just picking up on the point you're making about president do you think that his administration and those within it have the stamina to go the distance on this and really hearing a lot of positive rhetoric but as you say this could be quite a long protracted process. i think they have the stamina i question whether they have the cohesion trump administration has already been split asunder at times by north korea secretary towson was out in front searching for engagement and diplomacy at a time when the president and his national security team were really pushing for
12:15 am
maximum pressure and those same kinds of tensions are sure to surface in the months or even years ahead of difficult diplomatic slaw where i think that the process holds hope is that if the two leaders meet shake hands and reframe the question on the peninsula from one of outright hostility to one of trying to work together toward the common objective of peace in denuclearization there may be a little bit more patience on the u.s. side and where do you see bolton's position in all of this you know obviously there are concerns or at least there is no when it said what could happen around the iran nuclear deal as we head towards the may twelfth deadline of course this crucial meeting as well coming up next month or in early june what role might he play. well i know most mr bolton very well i worked at the state department thirty
12:16 am
years ago and he is a very difficult guy to work with and he is going to be trump's pit bull will point to john bolton as the person who has no patience for diplomacy as the person who would prefer a military solution even to this problem and i think he will use john bolton very effectively in that way as a bad cop while the president gets to play the good cop are i don't think that john bolton is the person who really should be sitting down to negotiate the the nitty gritty of any deal because his expectations are going to be way out of step with reality of what the north koreans are ever prepared to provide thank you very much appreciate your thoughts and perspective on this french and you see president and c.e.o. of the mountfield foundation their experience. with the news hour live from london much more still to tell you about.
