The world is unlikely to hear anything about the unreleased iphones anytime soon. The Mac though we couldn't hear about that week after next with rumor and speculation, pointing to a new AMAC announcement during WW D. C..
"I will relate that interesting story. The president of Kazakhstan actually visited a company called hike. Vision is another one that provides surveillance technology visit their office in China and he saw how with one. Click on a person's face. You could get that person's school history work history financial situation. Wow and wait for it. How did this person spend his or her leisure time? So where did this person go to have fun? Did you go to the movies? Did you stop by the bank to go to the post office where you hang out with friends? Did you participate in a protest and his reaction after seeing all of this was we need this technology. That's not where I thought the story was going. This is probably not the first time you're hearing about China's surveillance technology and that's because it gets a lot of coverage it's like a Black Mirror episode. It gives us visions of a dystopia in future but this technology and the eagerness of some countries to begin implementing. It is only a small part of a much bigger story about China through its belt and road initiative China's in the process of building and funding infrastructure projects across the globe and loaning vast sums of money in the developing world. Some observers argued that as it does this. China is also exporting its authoritarian model of government and eroding democratic norms. That many of us take for granted others say that China is simply taking business opportunities where it sees them and providing countries with an alternative to a global order that has gone unchallenged for decades. The debate comes down to one question. How will we choose to view China as they pour money into hospitals ports and roads around the World I'm Gabrielle? Sierra and this is why it matters today is China exporting authoritarianism. I think the most important thing to understand about China's foreign policy over the past ten years or so is that it really has been transformed. This is Elizabeth Economy. She's a senior fellow and director for Asia. Studies here at the council. She's also a distinguished visiting fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution beginning in about two thousand and eight with global financial crisis China's hosting the Olympics. These are really moments that defined in the minds of many Chinese leaders that China was rising. Chinese have many goals for these Olympics. One of them was to announce to the world. The China is back after two hundred years. China's economy has grown faster than that of any other major country. The Asian giant has now grown into one of the most important export markets for manufacturers from all over. The world is a period of historic change in China. There haven't been many periods in history as fascinating as this so there was a real sense within China for the first time that they had always expected that at some point China was going to surpass the United States but maybe that time was coming sooner than they anticipated. But what really has changed the game on the ground has been Xi Jinping everything for Xi Jinping is under the mantra of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and it is a call for reclaiming a much greater degree of centrality for China on the global stage. Xi Jinping became China's president in two thousand thirteen some observers have called him the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong. Look I think there are any number of objectives and we can find them all and Xi Jinping's writings and speeches but fundamentally what I think. Xi Jinping attempting to do is simply to make the world safer authoritarianism. Teaching is a dictator but dictators. Still have to answer to domestic constituents. This is Jessica. Chance Weiss associate professor of government at Cornell and a leading expert on Chinese politics. She has a different take on China's expansion. One that sees it as being less offensive and more defensive. China's concerned about a whole lot of different risks. Some of them domestic others ones. That emanate from abroad sparks. That might start the prairie fire and bring down the Chinese government and might take units overriding purpose is to continue to make the world safe for the Chinese Communist Party to strive at home. So this is a world that safe for autocracy to coexist alongside democracy in the international space. So it's not been as ideological I think and it's foreign policy is some admitted. It out to be so. China is trying to find a way to sort of fit in with a world. That might not be comfortable with its model of government tried to make space for its form of government to be regarded as one that can continue to exist that is legitimate than democracy isn't the only form of government so to speak and so this has made it easier for other authoritarian states to survive
Could We Be Entering an Era of Commercialized Space Exploration?
"I S A great deal to Nasr's defunct Space Shuttle Program Green Lit by then president Richard M Nixon in nineteen seventy two. This initiative gave the world its first reusable spacecraft from nineteen eighty one to two thousand eleven NASA astronauts into orbit on American made shuttles. These were often used to transport portions of the ISS during its construction on July Twenty first twenty eleven. The space shuttle. Eric came to an end. As the Atlanta's orbiter returned from its final mission with the program just continued. I S bound astronauts grew dependent on Russian Soyuz rockets. Then the law of Supply and demand took over for nearly a decade. No other rockets were capable of sending people to the ISS. All astronauts bound for that station had to be launched out of Kazakhstan Baikonour cosmodrome which is spaceport least to the Russian government and by April of two thousand twenty. The Russians were charging eighty six million dollars to include foreign astronauts in their Soyuz missions. Another Soyuz rocket launch is scheduled for October. And Breitenstein says NASA is currently negotiations to book a seat. Nevertheless it's hoped that the SPACEX x crew dragon will end the spaceflight monopoly. Rydin Stein explained. We want the russian-american relationship in space exploration to remain strong. We see a day. When Russian cosmonauts can launch on American rockets American astronauts can launch on Russian rockets by now space x the International Space Station? Have a fair bit of history. Using unmanned crafts the company has delivered supplies to the orbiting laboratory since two thousand twelve. The crew dragon aced dress rehearsal and March of two thousand nineteen when it left. Merritt island on the nose of a spacex Falcon nine rocket and autonomously docked with the International Space Station. Five days after its departure the crew track and returned to Earth splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean. Some one hundred and forty three miles or two hundred thirty kilometers a Florida's eastern coastline. But that trip only passengers were in earth shaped plush toy and a dummy named Ripley AB- named after Sigourney Weaver's character Ellen Ripley from the alien movie franchise a flight later. This month will be the first time that live. Astronauts will be on board space x crew mission director. Benjamin Reed said at the May First Conference Dragon will be fully autonomous. Expectation is that can carry the crew safely to the station and bring them home without direct intervention even so hurley and Bankin are set to take control for a short period before the crew dragon. Docs they'll be able to guide the vessel using touch screens or physical switches. Both options are available for certain portions of the journey while aboard cruise expected to test out such components as the maneuvering thrusters and in my own. Mental Control System. And then there's the spacesuits one piece outfits designed by SPACEX to supply the astronauts with oxygen provide the appropriate temperature and maintain pressure spacesuits plug into the crew dragons chairs when their wares. Sit down read. Said suits also have an integrated communication system so that the crew can communicate through their helmets. Neither Bank nor Hurley are strangers to low earth orbit. Lincoln's logged more than seven hundred eight hours in space and Hurley a member of NASA's last shuttle era crew back in two thousand eleven but every mission presents its own unique challenges like the rest of the world NASA space x and these two astronauts had to make adjustments during the krona virus taking extra precautions. So what does that mean? Both SPACEX and NASA have implemented social distancing protocols like keeping work desk six feet or two meters apart at their respective control rooms. Meanwhile the cruise getting a wide. Berth contact with them by any other team. Members has been minimized and many training sessions have been done. Virtually and the safety of is S. crew the astronauts will observe a preflight quarantine for May sixteenth until the launch on May twenty seventh. Right now. There are three space fares two Americans and a Russian living and working aboard the International Space Station. The length of Benjamin's and Harley stay at the facility will be determined at a later date it could last anywhere from five to thirty days when the time to head home arrives the crew tracking should undock Disley and deliver. Its human charges to Florida by way of the Atlantic. There's a long proud tradition of civilians gathering near the Kennedy Space Center to witness rocket launches. Unfortunately NASA is discouraging people from following suit this time lest they spread or contract Cova nineteen. But you can tune in and watch launch online for just the fifth time in history NASA astronauts will be test flying a new type of spacecraft should bankin an early complete their mission objectives. We may yet see a golden age of space tourism and innovation with private industry taking on development roles long adopted by governments Breitenstein. Said this really is the next major step. In commercializing low earth orbit and having a really vital low earth orbit economy in which NASA is one of many customers.

An Interview with 'Clinton Cash' Author Peter Schweizer
"Show and Peter how are you I'm great bill great to be with you now let's talk about the the book and I would note that down whenever I Google you and it comes up saying the controversial author of the massive cellar Clinton cash your controversial step back from this I look at that I look at Republicans bush forty one knew bush forty three left office know monetization one on Reagan left office he went to his ranch and now trump is actually cost them money in office what is it and the progressive mindset and this is in the mindset of libertarians are conservatives or moderates the progressive mindset says we got to monetize we got to make serious money what is there in the mindset that causes out to transpire well I think in the progressive mindset if you serve in government you're you're engaged and angelic behavior I mean you're you're you're not being selfish and greedy like people in the private sector and with that comes a sense of entitlement so in a sense that that that that you're deserving of data center you see this I mean you know we we broke the story on Joe Biden hunter Biden you know the million dollar your sweetheart deal hunter got from Ukrainians literally three weeks after Joe Biden his father as vice president is appointed point person on Ukraine policy Joe Biden says oh it looks bad but there's nothing wrong with it why because in Joe Biden's mind he is serve the public I'll put that in quotation marks since nineteen seventy two and his family deserves it so the idea is I'm I'm getting things for you it's time for me to monetize my fame and fortune thanks to that character the amazing thing to me is there sits in the oval office Barack Hussein Obama he sends Joe Biden to be in charge of Ukraine quickly his son starts making three million dollars over three years about eighty thousand a month and and and Joe Biden's mine and bomb is mine it wasn't appropriate for Joe Biden is ceda hunter hunter who's got it a sordid past you can't do that when I'm over here to get rid of corruption in Ukraine one hundred did was participate in it why didn't Obama stop yeah you didn't stop it because either he didn't care or you didn't have a full picture and I think it's just that he didn't care and what they keep saying that you people don't understand about the binds it's it's not just hunter and it's not just you crane hunter ran a veritable United Nations of corruption he did deals in China he deals in Kazakhstan deals an area he had no expertise no background any took in the money and we know that because we have the bank records related to a a corruption case involving hunter by his business partner but even more than that bill you have what I call the Biden fives and I talk about this in the book the Biden chapter seventy pages long five members of the Biden family only one of those being hunter cashed in while he was vice president you got his brother James whose father Frank his sister Valerie and his daughter Ashley's husband they all cashed in on sweetheart deals while Joe was vice president if systematic corruption when you're talking about the blinds about two weeks ago headline FBI recently rates business connected to James Biden Joe Biden's brother F. B. I. sounds like more trouble the company in question americorps holdings acquires and manages real hospitals declared bankruptcy in December now the F. B. I.'s raiding the home of the CEO of the company grand white and also others that that doesn't seem to be any interest by the FBI or by others to go after the Clintons the binds the Obamas what is their structurally in the mind of the F. B. I. I'm not talking the ninety nine percent I mean the one percent at the main base and justice the art of Robert F. Kennedy building what is there in their mind that we look for reasons to exonerate the Democrats but we look for reasons to implicate the Republicans what is what I think a lot of a bill has to do with what I call the permanent political class I mean Joe Biden is is you know he's older now but he's basically been a permanent fixture in Washington for forty years a guy like Donald Trump is going to calm I don't don trump's gonna stay in Washington DC when he leaves the White House he's gonna leave so there's a club atmosphere is by bipartisan it's the permanent political class and the reason that you don't have some Republicans warning to investigate Joe Biden is either their family is involved in some level of similar activity order hoping to at some point so this kind of the unwritten rule that we don't go after a prominent political figures and that's the reason we need to be shouting this from the rooftops we need to exposing it because here's the thing voters care about this stuff it's the reason I'm convinced that trump won in twenty sixteen and even though I think Bernie's ideas are are completely wrong for the country what's fueling his candidacy is the same anger at the corrupt establishment in Washington DC if if something universal on both sides of the aisle let's talk about your work on Bernie Sanders until your research about the hundreds of tens of millions of dollars to a mysterious company linked to his wife many thought he was a socialist who wants a revolution let's face it is a communist he wants the by violent means overthrow the United States government which is the definition of a revolution he wants fundamental change he wants the U. S. government to seize the assets of hospitals oil companies pharmaceuticals and so one would think that a guy like that is not really concerned about money he's a Ben and Jerry kind of a guy but in reality what did you find about how Bernie Sanders monetize socialism for his benefit but not ours you mentioned you know that that that sort of this is is a you know communist leanings I mean it's like the old Brezhnev stays in the Soviet Union you had them talking about world while pollution in the proletariat but they all had five deals in corrupt deals live like kings and Bernice case you know he's worth millions of dollars some of that came from writing books he's actually written more books and he's actually introduced pieces of legislation that if passed but a lot of people don't realize it more than half a million dollars of his own campaign funds have gone to buying his own book but the bigger the bigger issue bill is this this this dirty little secret about washing call media buying and and Bernie Sanders's latched on to this yeah if you were running for the Senate in the state of Ohio and you said Peter I want you to do my media buys by my TV and radio I get a commission of C. off of that it could be anywhere from ten to fifteen percent goes to the media buyer in the beauty of it is that doesn't show up anywhere in Federal Election Commission records you don't know who the media buyers well here's what Bernie did she saw this and what did he do when he started running for Congress left of the Senate he put his wife in charge of the media by which means she's got the commission even though she had no background in advertising and media buying any of this stuff so we know that she and Bernie we received hundreds of thousands of dollars by doing that and the great mystery comes to the twenty sixteen election will Bernice dropped eighty three million dollars on media buys so that means the commission somewhere between eight million and twelve million dollars where did it go well it went through a company called old town media old town media did not have a website did not have other clients it was registered to a home in the coldest sack in suburban Virginia all in the two owners of old town media were long time friends of James Sanders yeah he was after she heard Jane was asked about this by a progressive reporter in twenty sixteen what do you know about old town media do you have any connection to old town media and are you involved in this in any way and according to the professor reporter Jane Sanders just hung up the phone room of what happened to the twelve million dollars who got the media commission on that we just don't know what it's million ends is a little bit of money he monetizes the campaign so those are contribute to thirty six dollars each to the to the Sanders campaign have got to understand that goes into a pot and out of the pot comes all the media buys and that's how the Sanders family gets paid yeah and then the other thing that I think people need to know is that you know Bernie Sanders has been very clear cut in people calling the left kind of you Mister John the Baptist progressive movement why he's out of eating locusts and honey well you know he's worth millions of dollars he actually has an investment portfolio and when you look at his investment portfolio I hate to break this to you bill I know this is going to shock you he's not invested in like renewable energy companies he's not invested in you know some organic farm I mean he's invested in fortune five hundred stock that's where his investment portfolio is it's not a socially responsible investment fund that's where his investments are in when you set up you know we bought his third home the vacation home they set it up in the trust precisely to avoid paying some taxes so you know Bernie Sanders is not John the Baptist use is is more like a qualified king Herod at least in the way that is that he handles his investments in his own money let's move on to Lizabeth Warren she is picturing yourself as a every woman she knows exactly how you live your life she spent time a course in Oklahoma and then and she monetized her so called Indian heritage and I probably have more Indian blood to me than she does she use all along but you have great reporting on how she a really bad millions of dollars from corporations even though she rants and raves against corporate America how to Elizabeth Warren maker money our records network is around twelve million dollars they pay well at Harvard Law School they don't pay that well so the question becomes how did you make that money and so we re traced this we went through and found that in the mid nineteen nineties Elizabeth one was hired by the U. S. Congress and paid by us the taxpayers to help Congress to rewrite some of the bankruptcy laws okay she's a lawyer that makes sense they hire her they tend to do this whole ideas are incorporated into the bankruptcy code then what does she do bill she goes to large corporations Dow chemical and others and says you hire me as a consultant and I will help you navigate around the law I actually wrote genius is very corrupt moves and other people in Washington is done have done this she's denounced other people that have done this but she ended up working for Dow chemical Armstrong world wide a whole host of large corporations who are facing class action lawsuit towards and she was helping them minimize their exposure that's obvious a legitimate thing to do but the fact that she says I've been fighting for the little guy my entire life is simply not true she made millions of dollars helping the big guy large corporations slip out of responsibilities as it related to people who were damaged by the products those companies have produced you don't fall a few nights ago I'm watching Chris Matthews every now and then is a lucid moment and he was ranting and raving about socialism the evil socialism is because all over the world any referenced Ohio senator Sherrod brown that Sherrod brown is the kind of person that we need there because he looks after the little guys a union guy so Sherrod brown is being promoted by the mainstream media as kind of Bernie Sanders light and you've investigated were weren't shared brown gets his money from where is it that's very interesting shirt brown he always been in public life since you graduate from college he ran for the state legislature he listed himself he was still a senior at Yale when he ran for office he listed himself bill as a farmer under our occupation I don't know what kind of form he

"All right in Kazakhstan today a plane crashed just after takeoff that's right at least twelve people were killed including the pilot dozens more were injured here the back air flight carrying ninety eight passengers and crew took off from almighty International Airport because expands deputy prime minister saying the cause could be pilot error or some kind of technical issues and here's a scene Kim is following the story from Moscow is on the line now hi Lucy in the morning so what else do we know about what happened with this crash where are the airline involved is called back air which bills itself as Kazakhstan's first low cost carrier its website shows it has scheduled service to ten cities in Kazakhstan which is a huge country in Central Asia it's about four times the size of Texas this particular flight flight twenty one hundred was flying from almighty the country's largest city to the capital morsel time about six hundred miles away there were ninety three passengers aboard and five crew members one passenger told a local website that the plane took off normally and then about a minute or two into the fight into the flight are there was a strong shaking than the plane began to fall and hit the ground and struck a two story building and the fuselage broke apart the airport says there was no fire which probably accounts for this low death toll of airports as opposed to the list of sixty survivors on Facebook sixty survivors is some good news I wonder leucine do we know anything relevant about the type of plane that was involved here I yes this is a Dutch built Fokker one hundred it's a commuter jet which is no longer manufactured the company actually went bankrupt in nineteen ninety six because it could not compete with Boeing seven three seven our own seven of these planes which are flown by airlines around the world though no longer in the United States what are officials saying about the cause of the crash and about how they plan on investigating it well as as already mentioned the prime minister said it could have been pilot error or technical issue the president of the country said that a government commission had already been formed to investigate and he said those responsible would be punished to the full extent of the law though of course at this point there's no indication yet of the exact cause or whether laws were violated at tomorrow in any case has been declared a day of mourning in Kazakhstan and there's been a call put out for blood donors to step up in Almaty it's interesting you mention the seven thirty seven Max not that this plane was one but that this plane was sort of driven out of existence by that other plane which is it has famously crashed twice now and pin but you know we stopped production on a sense very quickly that an investigation in this part of the world will lead to a real change well the short answer is no I mean authorities in the former Soviet Union typically pledge to get to the bottom of things but there's this lingering Soviet tradition of inference piracy and a lack of accountability unfortunately and here's Lucy and Kevin Moscow.
"kazakhstan" Discussed on World News Analysis
"It's on the international stage the but they've been able to negotiate the Conservative Party. The third level I think is important. Is that I think that the the cabinet reflects an understanding that citizens are rather apathetic when it comes to politics and the need to change the face of the Party and change that the character of the Party so no longer lack cared a great hole grey-haired men but you know new new potential new vision and more efficient yeah well we know the new foreign minister has been the chief negotiator of Japan. US trade how do think his appointment may affect Japan's diplomatic eddie ties with neighboring countries and was the US so he's been an effective interlocutor with the United States and it appears that the United States and Japan will come up. Come come to some kind of trade agreement this month and I like I I see being announced at the United Nations around the time of the United Nations General Assembly and I I think this bodes well for his experiencing able to engage with macario partners and I think that this is the skill that we need now. We're in an era where leadership is a challenge and dealing with our regional partners and the international partners has become much more unpredictable. He's been able to negotiate this and I think that the skills that will enable him to negotiate with other challenging and in courtrooms relationships and that includes South Korea and includes China and includes take and how significant is the move of talk to our connell from the foreign ministry to the defense portfolio Mr Mr Corno tuttle. had done an effective job as foreign minister. He's been able to communicate. I think hard just to some infant challenging insulation he has been able to be forthright with those his Chinese counterpart around me as well as South Korean counterparts on difficult issues without founding offending or condescending and I think that's an important to kill but now he's being shifted to the Defense Ministry and this gives them a different talk. Bolio isn't is in a different context understanding Japan's relationships within the region and globally and I think the skill sets forth his background with studying at Georgetown University diversity in Washington strong relationship with Mike Pompeo and I think in general a strong relationship with the United States also will serve him well in terms of I maintain that the United States alliance as part of the cornerstones of Japanese security but also you know he has a pretty good understanding of the region and I I think you'll be able to negotiate security issues as effectively as he did issues the guards diplomacy through the Ministry of Foreign Affair. Well all the South Korean media they have noted a Mattia. The newly appointed members are known to have a hardline stance against South Korea like Catarrhal Taurel who has taken a tough stance on South Korean Supreme Court's decision on forced labor and the two countries military intelligence intelligence sharing pact and also Gora the new trade and industry minister who is also CNN twitter will now oversee depends export restrictions directions on South Korea. I mean how will these appointments effect that Balladur ties between Japan and South Korea so my view is that any shifted bilateral relations. We're going to need to come from the South Korean side with the election or what with President Moon coming into power what we've seen is I increment to sit and did I think much different more accelerated shift in really positioning South Korea Japan relations. I am not a positive the direction president park show some courage coming to the table and finding a a a a a very significant degree with in two thousand fifteen December recover limit agreement and I think that President Moon is made the decision to really alienate. Japan is part of a broader process to consolidate the sport domestically and South Korea and I think to push forward on on North Korean South Korean reunification of them store well whether this will serve him well the long term it's unknown but in the short term. I think that this has been. Ill considered decision. The leaders in in Japan I think they are also bewildered thereby these decisions because Japan and South Korea so many similar institutions similar values and of course security challenges and I think that really the agency could change between South Korea Japan. Don't lie until kill it. They lie in and actually one of the most talk about appointments is that of the rising political political stars Shinjiro Koizumi he was named Environment Minister. I mean does that bolster. His chance of succeeding Ave as the next prime minister well. He's still young right. He's younger than me thirty eight thirty nine you know he's recently married is going to have a child so he has a lot on his plate right now but importantly he's been brought into the political establishment and if you want to become a prime minister you need to be have experienced within the cabinet. You need to be able to negotiate difficult problem. and you need to consolidate a little political base within the party but this is the first step. He's opened the door. it's unlikely he'll be prime minister. You're in twenty twenty one. and it's unlikely you'll be a prime minister in in twenty thirty one. It's going to take some time really building strong clinical local based and successful policy of of the people in Japan isn't he. He's popular right. You know he's had some. He's charismatic. He's his father is interesting and and I think there's a lot of nostalgic for Prime Minister Koizumi's leadership but he still needs to have some some policy successes suspended demonstrated track record of being able to manage difficult issues crate convince you know he's taking on the portfolio of the Ministry of Environment and he has to deal with it's very difficult issues in particular shaming incident and dealing with you know Y- their decision to release radioactive material into the Pacific or find another solution Lucien air.

Shaw DOT COM and on domestic issues prime minister obey sat he will boost efforts to reform the nation's social security system. I mean how challenging is that task gained as the country's now facing an aging population and low birth rate it can credibly challenging debt continues changed increase year by year in the population decrease it but what we've seen over the past five years under the administration you know real stress on of creating a sustainable economy through various policies that fall under I'll mix and it's been relatively successful in urban areas and not so successful in the rural who area so he they need to crack that not the need to also be able to find different ways to crew income so that they can make a pension systems systems healthcare systems sustainable this will really challenge the Japanese bureaucracy to be creative and how they you know fund these programs so yes domestic domestic policies that are really important. Getting under control is very important. We should remember Japan is a very wealthy country owned by Japanese banks not by offering bank thank and it really positioned in terms of technology to deal with some of these issues in a way that I think other countries within the region you don't have these comparative are going to really struggle. Okay thank you Dr Steven Nagy's senior associate professor at International Christian University in Japan Japan and a distinguished fellow was to Asia Pacific Foundation more become trump blasted John Bolton for making some big mistakes as former national security gordy advisor. This is world today. Stay with us Hi Signer Chang`an the today this show brings extra local and international perspectives on China's economic and business issues having been in law government and finance in the United States. I find China's. I just fascinated and hope you do also thank you for listening. Welcome back. You're listening to world today. I'm Joanne. US President Donald Trump blasted Joan Bolton on Wednesday Wednesday for making some big mistakes during his tenure as national security adviser saying that he had been a disaster North Korea policy ought to fly in Venezuela Woah and that he did not get along with important administration officials a verdict mistakes when he talked about the Libyan and model forgive John that was not a good statement to make you just take a look at what happened with Qaddafi that was not a good statement to make and and it set us back and frankly he wanted to do things not necessarily tougher than me. John's known as a tough guy. He's so tough you got us into Iraq doc. That's tough but he's somebody that. I actually had a very good relationship with but he wasn't getting along with the people in the administration I consider very important from said has considering five candidates to replace Joe Boston and will announce his pick sometime next week from where we are now joined on the line but Professor Chu Bowl was China Foreign Affairs University professors. She's thanks for joining us. Okay Great Union volt President Trump said Joe borden had been a disaster on North Korea policy because he talked about the Libyan model which he believed setback relations Mr North so what does boatmen's departure Mian for the denuclearization talks so I think it's very obvious mistakes job. Jon Boden talking about Libya Libya model in terms of the Korean Peninsular issue and especially make the DPRK's either concern about the regime change especially after the new Kalis the new beat neutralized and then what happened so their next so I think fo these DPRK the compatriot arbitral by no well goof Stein for them and I think Donald Trump himself the DPRK out the North Korea is is a new car and he is especially during the election and I think he might manipulates this if he we feel nice history he may meet the leader of DPRK in before by the end of this year well we know the US North Korea they are expected to resume their talks hopefully later this month and North Korea's vice foreign minister said she I hope the US will bring pote proposal geared to the interests of the DPRK and the US and based on the solution methods acceptable to us and she warned that if the outside toys was an scenario that has nothing to do with the new method at working level talks which would be held after difficulties. A deal between the two sides may come to an end but can we really expect the trump administration to come with some new more flexible approaches instead of continuing continuing to pursue his maximum pressure policy. Yeah I think so down trump is much more for life so I've just mentioned if fo the domestic policy is especially general election knees and he may he just much taking a much more flexible policy towards woes a North Korea and so why the job Lille data. It's really mean that Donald Trump to now really rung to maintain still cowed the maximum pressure strateg- policy and he tried to make has a good at conditions. I suppose the negotiation. This is the positive aside about on the other side. We're still can locate much more difficulties between the United States stays on DPRK especially the United States coming out of a secure make sure the DPRK niece especially did they security requirements so acting on the positive side down the travel well much more flexible animate the receiving negotiation the Asian persecute Weber's mostly but on the other hand there are much more difficulties are high between two countries and on the the Middle East policy. Some analysts see John Bolton as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's most enthusiastic supporter in Washington. So what does he accent men for US policy on Israel and on Iran..
