bolton to stop in publishing what's expected to be a damning insider account. and the new u.s. sanctions designed to further isolate syria's president force him to make concessions. the day after north korea blew up a liaison office that was used to communicate with south korea its military is announcing further escalations the army says that it will redeploy troops near the heavily fortified border and demilitarized zone it also intends to resume regular military exercises and to reestablish guard posts in frontline areas on top of this north korea has rejected south souls' offer to discuss reducing tensions let's go live that apology which is on the south korean side of the border al jazeera swap mcbride is the what's the look at the mood there now rob after these latest
5:02 am
moves from north korea. i think throughout south korea there is a general sense of disappointment at what has taken place also a sense of growing concern just about how how bad this battle will get with the war of words that seems to be developing but i think also in south korea that there is a sense of we have seen this before south koreans of course are no stranger to these kinds of crises and into korean relations the last one of course was 2017 just before this period of reconciliation when the south korean peninsula would almost seem to be on the brink of war but before that you had 2030 and before that 2006 so there is a feeling of a history here repeating itself but i think there was a feeling this time generally that this could have been different that there were real chances of a breakthrough where we are do this is about as close as you can get in south korea to the d.m.z. it is actually still a few kilometers and
5:03 am
a lot more barbed wire further on from here but it is it does give you a sense of the history of the conflict but also of the potential of future coexistence of the hopes of which were still alive until very recently we have the main rail connections here between north and south one of them is a rail bridge that was destroyed during the war and has been has remained so but the other connection was restored and then in a previous round of reconciliation of talks the rail link between north and south was reconnected and there was a real hope that with the improving relations this time around they would make enough progress that they could actually restart rail links train services between north and south that would have been remarkable breakthrough but of course they are hopes that now seem very far away indeed especially given the kind of vitriol we have coming from the north the kind of words being used by junk for example the sister of north korea's leader branding and moving jay in the president of south
5:04 am
korea as brazen and shameless it really does seem as though we're returning to some of the acrimony of the past and what's the context here rob why is north korea doing this now. stenciled lee the north koreans say that this is because the south koreans have failed to prevent defective groups here in south korea from releasing balloons that take propaganda messages floating over the d.m.z. into the north certainly those kind of actions do angered north korea but that's being seen largely as an excuse and that what is probably behind it is a deep sense of frustration after going down this road of go see a sions with south korea after negotiations with the united states north korea believes it has nothing to show for all of that and has given an awful lot of weight for nothing in return so this seems to be lashing out in frustration maybe possibly sending a message to the united states but it's really debatable just how closely the
5:05 am
united states is listening at the moment and i think there is a feeling that the moon jay and of south korea travel to pyongyang gave an unprecedented speech in 2018 to a stadium tens of thousands of north koreans there is a feeling as though the north koreans really put themselves out they could have expected more in return possibly a certain naivety on their part that they overestimated just how much moving jay in the south koreans could move the international community or could also move and budge the position of the united states al jazeera as robin bride reporting from park on the south korean side of the border many thanks rob. indian and chinese officials are blaming each other for a deadly brawl in a disputed region of the himalayas 20 indian soldiers were killed when a standoff of a construction escalated to stone throwing in fistfights both countries insist that
5:06 am
no shots were fired at the to share the world's longest unlocked border the line in yellow is the so-called line of actual control but there are several disputed areas on either side one of the main ones is exide chin which is claimed by india but it's been administered by china since 1962 when the 2 countries went to war over the border the most recent serious tension was in 2017 of the chinese road construction in an area between the nepal and tom lived out of beijing and out a serious katrina you know how is this playing out in the media in china. well we've had a chinese military spokesperson from the p l a give a statement or of the night and he basically reflected what china's foreign ministry had said earlier he laid the blame completely at the foot of the indian side saying that they broke an agreement and that is why this this deadly wrong he
5:07 am
also said that this also cation took place in an area which was clearly chinese territory so he blames completely the indian side for stirring up trouble essentially now the chinese media have generally tended to take a very nationalistic tone when it comes to this border issue in previous weeks but today surprisingly it's quite a dance in tone and saying that it reflects that this statement from the p.l.o. a spokesperson saying it was clearly india's fault but also calling for calm and dialogue and i think that probably does reflect some of the the chinese government's intention to really not want this to reach all out escalation all out conflict one thing the global times chinese state media newspaper spoke about was that the indians lighted had been making 2 misjudgments now the 1st misjudgment is that china will not want to enter a confrontation saying that china will not back down from a confrontation if necessary and then that china is 2nd in his judgment is that
5:08 am
china's military is not up to the task and also saying that if it will if it is pushed that china's military will go into this conflict and it will prevail so we had some nationalistic tone there but also overall i think the state media here had been trying to say that peace and dialogue is the way to go forward all right so how do we reach this point why change the building along the border. well we've had strained tensions along this border for decades now as you mentioned over the line of actual control which side controls which part of territory in this disputed area now there hasn't been any deaths in decades so this is extremely significant that what happened here on monday but in recent months these tensions have been getting more and more strained both sides have been both string their military presence there certainly just earlier this month nor that chinese military
5:09 am
troops were sent to that area and conducted exercises amid a time when they were supposed to be engaging also in deescalating dialogues and for months now they've had these scuffles at times they've been reports that these soldiers are literally staring down staring down at each other eyeball to eyeball with these tensions so it's been quite a tense tinder kind of spot where a spark could really set things things off quite easily so it seems that with the military buildup on both sides and with nationalistic strongman leaders as well fanning. hostile rhetoric that perhaps the this this. this will this brought essentially was was due to happen at some point 0 to trigger you live in beijing true but he thinks. a cheap and widely available steroid can dramatically cut the death rate from covert 19 a new drug trial in the u.k.
