3:03 pm
a skeptical. you were there when you got him john is saying that he will complete denuclearization and close the nuclear test site through the into korean summit but we cannot believe it helps you navigate them what it undeniable as officials in panmunjom complete the final preparations for the summit it's clear that achieving any official agreements in just a day of talks will be difficult to say the least but friday's summit is a breakthrough in itself. and if the meeting goes smoothly it should lay the groundwork for something even more unusual talks between north korea and the u.s. . joining me now is our correspondent jason strother in the south korean capital seoul welcome jason what is south korea hoping to get out of the summit. well i think just bringing kim jong moon down below the border was a an accomplishment itself but i think like we heard from some of the people in
3:04 pm
that package they just want a sense of calm and normality on the korean peninsula we have to remember that just at the end of last year there was talk about war erupting here again so i think deescalation of tensions is is that even very least that president moon can hope for although i think that the loftier goals would be for north korea to completely denuclearize as well as engage in dialogue that would lead to a peace treaty that would eventually that would ultimately and the korean war which only came to a conclusion with a cease fire agreement back in one nine hundred fifty three that's going to be a hugely symbolic step and the north korean leader kim jong il on call says and steps across the border into the thought oh my this again how this summit came a lot and why now at the beginning of this year kim jong moon in his new year's address said that he hoped to participate in the winter olympics here in china and
3:05 pm
after that overture south korea went into full gear trying to get the north koreans to participate and they did the north and south korean athletes marched together during the opening ceremony in february under a unified flag north korea even sent athletes to the paralympics in march and that sports the plumas see has led to this the fall in tensions and now this summit this week and jason and you indicated this is a very high stakes summit how important is the outcome of this meeting for the one being done and kim jong un briefly if you can. well we're on not even sure if the trump kim summit will actually happen i think we're still some ways off from that i think what is discussed tomorrow here in in south korea will really set the agenda for a potential kim trump summit right jason strother in so thank you very much for
3:06 pm

3:10 pm
are two problems with trump one is his as well ideology and his promises but an even bigger problem is that he's totally erratic personality the total unpredictability of the man so nobody knows quite what he is going to do but we just have to keep on trying keep on working and in a sense the good news is that he can change his mind as we've seen over north korea to think about national thank you so much for this interview. but you know while talking to the british historian the still under way on twitter and it's all about one man and his seeming bill mance with a u.s. president yet here he is yes that is rapper kanye west on the right and notice the cap that he's betting he has a close up. but what kicked off the storm wasn't this tweet a suggestion donald trump and the rapper could be kindred spirits we are both of
