1:08 am
that north korea's leader says he will suspend nuclear and missile test this as we see an increasing reduction of tensions on the korean peninsula and all of a summit between north and south korea that's coming up next week and then of course a potential meeting between jiang and washington in may or in early june well kathy novak joins us live now from seoul and i know there's not much information at this point kathy but what are you hearing about the decision in pyongyang about these myside a nuclear tests. yes that seems to be a major development coming out of the north korea and out of its announcement through its state media the korean central news agency take the anything that's on april twenty first which is today local time north korea will stop nuclear tests and launches an intercontinental ballistic missile and that it intends to shut down a nuclear test site inside north korea and that in the country's north to prove
1:09 am
that it is the valley to suspend nuclear tests the humans on the run five years ago launched his signature policy which was basically a dual track to pursue both the development of the nuclear weapons program and economic policy and what it appears now is that north korea is announcing that as far as it is concerned its nuclear weapons program incomplete that is announcement that north korea made last year with the tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles and its most powerful nuclear test ever saying then that it was satisfied that its nuclear weapons program is complete so it seems to be signaling now through its state news agency that it is shifting the focus from leaving nuclear weapons development to more of an economic policy this is something that analysts had hypothesized could be announced as compelling goes into this of shark summit
1:10 am
with not only the south korean president but also u.s. president donald trump and it sets a very important theme going into these meetings because the question had been kind of concessions wouldn't want korea be willing to give at the meeting in exchange for anything that the u.s. or south korea might be willing to give north granted change and now it seems that before even then the of the leading tappan the north korean government is saying to its people that this is a decision that has been dated internally that gives the leader had decided. the strategy now going forward will be shifting from nuclear weapons development as i say to economic policy development so a very different year on the grand where just last year we're seeing the very regular tests of intercontinental and intermediate range ballistic missiles as well
1:11 am
as nuclear tests and now north korea appears to be saying that is going to thanks very much kathy novak with all the latest from a soul on this major development out of pyongyang an announcement from the government that that nuclear test will stop and they'll be no more test firing of intercontinental ballistic missiles this ahead of a meeting between north and south korea next week and a much anticipated meeting as well between the u.s. and north korea. students across the united states have been marking the nineteenth anniversary of the columbine school massacre on a national day of action against gun violence in schools the anti gun movement in the u.s. has gained new momentum since the park and school shooting in florida in february when seventeen people were killed and a gallic i was at the protest in parkland. once again the students of marjorie
1:12 am
stoneman douglas high school if the classrooms to call for gun reform in february the students lost fourteen of their classmates and three teaches. that love. they've been campaigning for a changing gun laws ever since and were joined by students from across the country from coast to coast there were more than two thousand demonstrations in all our school our t. shirt was shot and killed at the beginning of the year so this is something that we take very personally and if you look at it allocated for rescue people that have just been freed by police from inside the building the day marks nineteen years since thirteen people were killed at columbine high school in colorado in the years since gun laws have largely remained unchanged and school shootings have got worse it's happened at sandy hook it's happened at great mills and i happen at my school like we shouldn't be letting this happen we shouldn't be letting people die without trying to change something and stop something even
1:13 am
a students marched in parklane to another school shooting was reported in central florida the alleged shooter is now in custody and no one was killed but it's a reminder of what children here face every day the walk out here and the thousands of others across the country demonstrate the resolve of this generation more than any other they've been affected by the plague of gun violence and they hope to be the ones that finally bring change on the gallacher al-jazeera pocket florida. us democratic party is suing the donald trump campaign and russia over alleged collusion in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election a rush of contacting trump's advisers to inform them of a cyber attack that leaked negative information about his democratic rival hillary clinton. little suit also involves weiqi leaks and its founder julian the son they say gave the trump team advance knowledge they were publishing information patty call him is following events from washington. it's an unusual move but not an unprecedented one democrats sued over the watergate break in and they did get some
1:14 am
money on the day that richard nixon left office in disgrace now the lawsuit is against russia russia's intelligence service and some russian citizens it is difficult to sue a sovereign nation in the united states but it is possible difficult but possible it also sues wiki leaks and its founder julian assange and it really targets people very close to the president president donald trump not named in this lawsuit because it's really hard to sue a sitting president but his campaign is named along with his son don jr son in law jerry cushion or his former campaign chairman paul mann afford his advisor roger stone and former campaign aides george papadopoulos and richard gates now the complaint alleges that the trump campaign colluded with russia to steal and publish e-mails from the democratic campaign workers in an attempt to help trump win the presidency much of what is in this lawsuit was already known but there are a couple of things that we didn't know for example it says it alleges that in late twenty fifteen that far back that european intelligence services said that they
1:15 am
were witnessing some suspicious communications between russian operatives and members of the trump campaign that they notified the u.s. about that again late two thousand and fifteen it also goes on to say that the hack was earlier than we previously thought that it happened again in twenty fifteen and it wasn't just the computer system it was the phone system that was compromised so some new details in this lawsuit this could be seen as a dangerous move if people perceive that it is in any way going to interfere with special counsel robert mueller who is investigating potential collusion between. the term campaign and russia but it also could serve the purpose of putting just another venue to get the information out there there's growing concern that the special counsel will be tampered with or could possibly be let go if this lawsuit is allowed to proceed this basically puts before court before jury all on the record. what happened in their twenty sixteen campaign and it also serves as
1:16 am
putting even more pressure on people in trump's orbit they're already facing pretty high legal bills and legal issues and this will only add to that so i had this half hour more violence in south africa's northwest province as president ran a person visits to content for local services. welcome back it's a largely fine picture across much of the struggle particular woman sydney a twenty three degrees of southerly wind but elsewhere pleasant for adelaide temperatures in the mid to upper twenty's and is fine across northern areas largely free of showers at the moment darwin they're looking at thirty five. but we have got this frontal system which we pushing in towards western australia cheering the last part of softly into sunday so just taking the edge of the temperature somewhat uncertain the threat of some rain developing that later on so moving across into
1:17 am
news in the south on and seeing quite a bit of cloud you can see at the moment and that will continue to feed in over the next twenty four hours so it's a cloudy picture of the chance of some showers on the western side of the south on the north on in cherry not looking too bad oakland twenty degrees celsius and those head on through into sunday the wind picking up from the southwest so temperatures falling away a little bit you see just a fourteen as a mix in christchurch heading up into northeastern parts of asia weather conditions here are looking pretty fine across much of japan as you can see twenty one in sapporo when she get down south asako look at my some twenty six degrees also fine conditions across the korean peninsula this frontal system those pushing through beijing thirty two degrees on friday but dropping down to just eighteen by sunday. counting the cost of a trade war a real war and rising debt find out why the i.m.f.

1:20 am
a country that the trumpet ministration has tried to build better relations with is russia john sullivan is the acting secretary of state the russian government continues to quash dissent in civil society even while it invades its neighbors and undermines the sovereignty of western nations we once again urge russia to end its brutal occupation of ukraine's crimean peninsula to halt the abuses perpetrated by russian led forces in ukraine's donbass region and to address impunity for the human rights violations and abuses in the republic of chechnya the report also criticized russia for basically trying to crush political opponents including the man who wanted to run against our blood a mere putin for president alexander no volley. of the other countries that report singles out who are then the top five offend. well the state department
1:21 am
doesn't rank them in top five but in no particular order you can say that burma or myanmar is not in the us is a good stead neither is syria neither is north korea neither is iran and that's not just because of the way that iran treats its own citizens by not allowing free flow of information or organize political dissent but also because of its role in the syrian civil war and that's also something that the u.s. criticized russia for for meddling in the syrian civil war so pretty tough comments one thing that the countries that all do earn poor marks is in an area where you would think they would want to cooperate the u.s. criticizes them for not engaging with u.n. offices and agencies rosen john in washington thank you yet or the british trying prince charles will succeed queen elizabeth as the next head of the
