Fresh update on "north korean" discussed on The World at Large

"It but he was incited is bulletproof. You just ran through the border They saw then lunacy. This guy jumping over the border. So what's the deal here. Then this out in south korean military said look. I know i knew we should have acted it. I get it but look it's hard okay. But we're going to check on our cameras. We're gonna check our senses. Make sure it's all working. Because i grew should have gone off But this is the second time within a year that defector at a defector has gotten over the border without getting detected. the other one was last year in august. Twenty nineteen Which a group of four north koreans approached the coast of south korea from the coast and they just floated right in and none of the garden. That no the security picked it up. They just floated in so the criticism is. How are you not seeing these people. You got cameras everywhere. You go national guard so little bit confused here. It just floated right up to village without being detected however this criticism has also been plied to the north korean army because they let the sky escape right. A how do you not see him jumping over the facts. Right seat. You gotta you gotta levy christmas and both in both directions but nevertheless quite interesting story are very interesting interesting. Indeed slick move on now to north africa. Libya the libya guys. If you didn't know is going through a civil war for a pretty intense civil war one as be going on for many years now and it doesn't really seem like it's anywhere near and south. The united nations got together and they said look. We're going to. We're going to have to stop this war. The best tammy you can't just go in there and ended because that never goes well so we're going to do instead eighty. Maybe they can get the guy who could leap ten feet and see if he can do anything the war and apparently become invisible but anyway. I digress continue. Yeah so he don't like okay so this so what. The united nations said they're going to do is. We're going to place an arms embargo on the country of libya. We can't actually stop the war but we can do is kind of cut them off from the outside for arms purposes in that way no one why. No new people will get in soldiers. Nonni guns elliott eminent amunition. Eventually like he'll maybe that'll do something however. A turkish ship was unswayed libya. Who's just minding his own business and it was stopped by german by german. Lend navy stopped by german. Frigate in the personnel from the german boat stopped the ship in they got a helicopter flew onto the turkish ship. They forcibly like sees. The crew pushed them into a corner of the boat while they searched it It so the ship currently did not give permission for the german soldiers to be there. So that's where the anger come on. Because they were just kind of supposed to stay in the corner while everyone else start in so the again. This is because of the embargo in the ship is task. It's it's led by the council in rome. In what this council does it makes it kind of enforces. The barco in libya and so the ships are just patrolling in there. So they're just trying to make sure that no one could comment in so no countries allowed to import arms into libya includes turkey so stay thought that this was a justification in itself to actually searched the ship and so that so they thought that was the best step to take it so the search was never completed. His turkish government was not very happy. They said you cannot just come on our ship. That's my ship. That is none of your business. Germany you cannot enter other people's property my poor crew. What are you doing in so they call this search quote illegal and they immediately demanded it stopped and that was that the germans had to leave the couldn't keep searching and so they the german government said well. Look we asked the asked it first. We ask them and they said they never applied to us so we thought you to what. We're not going to reply. Which legal ownership worst gonna send guys there and receiving. Just do what we have to do right. And so they actually said this quote from the german defence ministry upon receiving no reply. Your german search teams brought by helicopter to the fright. Freighter and commence the search. The crew was very cooperative and commanded the search and the jets cruise cooperative so essentially the crew kinda just went along with it but they didn't really understand what was happening. I didn't think they were gonna get pulled aside at so. The turkish government again was very very angry and they saw him its ambassadors from italy germany. And you in a few because all these authorities garments are involved in this process heavily and they called. They wanted to recall them to formally protest their shipping search. Because they don't think it's fair think it's mean to can't touch her stuff and to be fair to turkey The german government said that on the limited search that they did conduct. They didn't find anything they didn't. They didn't find anything that infringed on the agreements embargo. At least so pretty good in turkey said yeah all you all you found were biscuits like that's as they set so The us you don't trust you. Trust me to uphold the embargo germany very disrespectful. You're never gonna search ships again so they go When i don't just go knock on your door and is tied. Don't hear reply. Don't just let myself in or two. I do you. I don't but. I liked what germany did. Maybe they just want to play pirate and they just wanna read people. That's a fun game. I in that case justify depends on the reason But anyways you guys can ponder that reason but in the meantime ataka guatemala squat. Amal audubon led by president ellen. Rodriguez has suspended.

A Look At The Last Presidential Debate

"Last night in Nashville us, President Donald, trump, and the man who hopes to replace him former vice. President Joe Biden debated for the second and final time. In this presidential campaign, it did meet the unexacting challenging challenge Rav of being a less rigidly undignified spectacle than the previous encounter between the candidates portions of it indeed could almost have been mistaken for some sort of discussion of. Policy but did we learn anything from it and is really imaginable that it changed any minds or moved any needles on joined for a thorough examination of last night shenanigans by Monaco's news editor Chris Chumash and US election correspondent, Thomas Lewis, and Chris. First of all to you in the studio of what if anything stuck out for you this time last time it was all about the bickering and name calling what was this one about so to start. With it was simply the news is that there was no not as much and name calling as last time. Frankly I wish we could have three debates like last night's it was actually a substantive debate with quite strong policy differences exposed between the two that were interesting and it also what I what struck me was it signalled how the parties, how both parties have really shifted stances in a couple of different ways. So there was some. Interesting exchanges, for example, even on on foreign policy, which we hadn't heard before on North Korea where trump for example lauded the fact that he had met with North Korea's leader Biden was the one to say you know he would only meet with the North Korean leader if they were preconditions attached, this is a complete reversal compared to Obama and the way that Republicans tend to be the tough one saying they wouldn't meet with leaders in the past. Racism was an interesting discussion on race as well. We're both sort of showed how much the country has shifted by both sort of highlighting the fact that they actually want to be. Put to put it in one way a bit softer on on crime to to be a bit softer particularly on drug crimes things like that that you know in the nineties the US took a very tough stance on and put a lot of black Americans behind bars both sort of highlighted their software. Abilities here in order in order to to cater to that to confront racism in the country. So there are some interesting policy shifts that I found in. Thomas what do you ascribe that difference in tone of this debate to worthy to candidates president trump in particular I guess. Taking a deliberately different approach or had they been backed into it by the changes in format? I think was the certain certainly Andrew. An element of being deliberate by Donald trump particularly because I think it's played so badly for him last time around during this railroading performance that we saw in Cleveland Ohio the start Tobe. So I think it was intentional. On his part and on Joe Biden's parts to I think the intention was to really just hammer home that the failings in the United States that moment essentially trump's fault and trying to tack every little element of it back onto the president as being unable to be an effective leader I thought Donald. Trump, was the one. Who really started coming back to his own talking points and I thought there were two or three kind of quite clear lines there I thought it was clear that Donald Trump was trying to portray himself as this kind of insurgent outsider. Once again, like we saw in twenty sixteen, which struck me as quite. Weird because he has been president for four years of course but it seemed to work for him last time and I think that's something he's not grasping for to try and cement his support within his base. We also saw him try to bring in Joe Biden's son. Hunter. Bite. and have been some fatty sort of suspicious revelations as an emails that actually many people now believe Iraqi the work of disinformation players but he brought that up several times and I, thought the. Moderator Kristen Welker ABC News She did actually pretty well to allow people to respond to the more outrageous things either candidate was saying, but she didn't let that dominates and I thought that really let the debate itself thing really. Well, let's troy rewarding the behavior. He wished to see more of our ye sensible discussion of actual policy. We have a couple of clips from the candidates they talked about immigration. This was what president trump had to say her children are brought here. By coyotes and lots a bad people cartels and they're brought here and they used to use them to get into our country. We now have a stronger borders we've ever had. We're over four hundred miles of brand new wall uc see the numbers and we let people in, but they have to come in legally and they come in through. WAS President Trump for Chris returning to basically the talking point with which he launched his campaign for president in the first place, which was the the specter of mass illegal immigration teaming over the Rio Grande is it still working for him? Well, I think that was what made this interesting because as as he say, immigration has sort of fallen down the list of priorities of concerns of Americans over particularly the last year of course for. Obvious. Reasons the economy taking taking center stage. This sort of exchange between Biden and trump was very interesting for that because it brought it back into the four reminded people perhaps of other things that have happened in Donald Trump's presidency. This clip particularly was about the fact that there are still some five hundred children that have not been able to find their parents. After having been separated at the border. So this was a very frank conversation, a challenge to Donald Trump to talk about his policy, but it was also something that he seemed unapologetic about quite happy to have this discussion because I think as you say, immigration is a topic that launched his campaign. It's been an important topic. He argues that he got the border. Under, control he did also make an interesting common that people could still come legally which I found somewhat interesting as well because it shows that perhaps even he is recognizing you know in many ways this debate, he was a little bit softer and less inflammatory in his rhetoric. Then he has been in the past he did though have also a bizarre. Remark a bit talking just about the children of the border saying, well, they're in very good conditions. They're they're in clean rooms So there's some strange. They're definitely some strange remarks within this but yes, I encourage people to listen to the immigration exchange. Well, this is what Joe Biden had to say on the same subject he's five hundred plus kids came with parents. They separated them at the border to make a disincentive to come to begin with. Bay Real. Tough. We're really strong and guess what they cannot not coyotes didn't bring them over their parents were with them they got separated from their parents. And it makes us a laughing stock in violates every notion of who we are as a nation. Tony swear eleven days out from polling date. Now, obviously, as we know, tens of millions of Americans have voted already, which makes the but the third, slightly less climactic than it may have been in previous years but they're all too contrasting visions. The candidates were trying to pitch here I mean Joe Biden to appropriate the talking point of Value Republican president is is clearly pitching the kinder gentler nation isn't he? He is absolutely and I think. They're actually was as Chris mentioned part of a section where Joe Biden really was really very well, he was interrupted a few times by Dominic shrimp, but he really kept his own and he really came across incredibly forcibly about sort of how opponent idea in principle separating telling children away from patterns at the border really is I that does plays and you say into his this idea that's. Donald. Trump is this sort of aloof man who lives in his own bubble whereas Joe Biden someone and he kept making this point over and over again he kept saying that I don't care if you vote for me if you don't vote for me blue states red state. That's not how I see the United States and I think that was quite effective. Donald trump didn't really seem to. Be He did soften lots of elements of his answers on some topics Chris alluded to but he wasn't really I'd be surprised if legions of new voters now come into Donald Trump's because of his performance last might think we've with Joe. Biden. He did paint nuanced detailed picture of of kind of this person of empathy and in the sort of different nuances in ways that that unfolds through him. And through his agenda for president so I think as you say, the fact that so many people this record number of people have voted or ready that probably does take the steam out a little bit of just how consequentialist debate was last night when we talk because he did at the start about needles moving and and big sort of campaign bombshells happening this late stage I'm not sure. It would have had affect last night, Thomas Lowest Chris show Mac. Thank you both very much for joining us.

Joe Biden came face to face for the last time before Election Day and made their final pitches to voters. Last night's debate was a little calmer than the one three weeks ago. It seems the new muted microphone policy and or agreements worked because there were definitely fewer interruptions this time around and you got hear more from each candidate still there were a lot of tense moments as the candidates clashed on several key issues first of all corona virus. President Trump said we're rounding a corner with the help of treatments of vaccine is coming soon and that Americans have learned to live with cove in nineteen he emphasized the importance of not shutting down the country and cited mental health issues in job losses caused by lockdowns former. Vice. President Biden argued that people have not learned to live with it. They've learned to die with it since the pandemic has claimed more than two hundred and twenty three thousand American lives so far Biden focused on wanting to give more resources to state schools and businesses to be. Able to open but with better safety protocols and he endorsed wearing a mask to help save lives next the candidates talked about foreign affairs trump accused Biden of corruption saying he and his family made money from his time as vice president especially pointing to Biden's son hunter and his business dealings in Ukraine. But Biden promise quote I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life Biden also accuse trump of getting too cozy with. American. Adversaries like North Korean dictator Kim Jong Hoon to that trump said the fact that the US is. Not In a war with North Korea right now proves his international strategy has worked. They went on to discuss issues including race immigration health and the climate. Of course, the campaigns are only picking up speed from this point out today.

Early morning military parade held in North Korea for anniversary of ruling party

"Held a bit of a party, the 75th anniversary of the KP W, the Korean Workers Party or Communist Party of North Korea. And the Kim Jong UN used it as an opportunity to Unveil some, frankly, a surprising weapons systems, everything from a new, larger ICBM that has, as of this early this morning never been seen before. And there wasn't just one trembling down the parade way. There were several in a row. Right down to some small arms, then we didn't know the North Koreans. Had now not granted. You know, this isn't the entire North Korean army. But it's a thousands and thousands of troops representing the North Korean naval Infantry, which is they're Marines. Army border guards the whole thing off some first impressions and I'll send a link out to the unedited Fourcade 2.5 hour stream. But it's given us some insight into whether or not Corona has actually hit mirth Korea or not so thing one. Kim Jong UN is wearing a Western style suit and to be totally honest, he looks like he's lost weight. The reasoning behind that is because nobody would survive the encounter. If they came to him and said We're going to put you in a corset for 2.5 hours. Hear me out. We're gonna put you on a course it for 2.5 hours. Make you look thinner. Even his sister probably wouldn't wouldn't be down with that. It really looks like legit. He lost weight, which might give credence to did he have the cove ID four months ago or one of the five times this year he's been declared dead. Maybe there was some sickness. Besides the obvious thing, which is that he is a mother, love and fat ass on DH, the fattest man in North Korea. And I don't think That's even a debate and sew up there on the dais and the viewing stand. Of course, he had rows and rows and rows of the stone faced upper ranks of the North Korean People's Army. These are the guys in the khaki uniforms with the rose of medals. Festooning their uniform from their collarbone to their scrotum on the left side and the right side there, just so out there so awesome that they don't just wear one row one set of ribbons on there. Left chest. No, no, no, no. There that much better than everyone else on Earth. They need to rose. They should wear two suits. They're going to be wearing him down the back soon anyway, The skill with those guys is to not Crack and emotion. The only emotion acceptable is gushing tears, which on cue happened today. So Kim Jong un gave about 20 minutes speech before, he said, Unleash the amazing parade in Korea. So thing one nobody and there were about 100 luminaries, etcetera on the viewing, Stan. Nobody wearing a mask. Oh, and they were shoulder to shoulder on in the front row. Kim Jong un was flanked. Shoulder shoulder by his generals and then behind him in several rose not to. But as they say in certain military services were other senior ranking guys. No masks. No

"All we're just friends wandering around just like, oh, we just escaped and no big deal. But like by myself, I have to explain myself. Right. So I guess like having him next to me, I guess it like give me a lot of motivation, right to like goal it a further, but for myself, I didn't know if I could do it in a, but I'm originally termined you know. Even if I'm going to die. Like I don't want to dine there. I'm gonna die here. So in the afternoon, the next state, right in the afternoon, I walked into Roberta device, North Korean China, which is yellow fever. And then I hit the toll grass where I don't know until talk nece. And I couldn't really move. I had this remain my like disposition. Mike looks like a shrimp and because it wasn't Wendy, you know, and the grass was Sykes toll steel. And if it's if they this, it's moving because that a flashlight, you know, if it's this moving, tuna comes on and Chuck thrice. I couldn't move at all. It was fun, and I thought it was my time. And then I slowly walked into the water and then was like walking walking and like my brain is completely blank. Like, I don't think about anything, but I just feel the cold water and all it's so cold and like. My heart is like bidding in my throat too. And then halfway into the river, I slipped in a rock and a little screen man. 'cause the water Kerma so fast. I couldn't anything about it right. And I think that a gasping, I wasn't screaming that our gasped and then immediately a floodlight muscle. My back and I heard a soldier screaming at me, oh man, his eye, Josh, heck ya under Massamba. So so it's like he's like, you bashed her compact here, stop stop or we shoot. And like adopted. I'm like, I'm dead anyway. You know, like if I stop here, I'm going to drown. I'll studied the way either. He was shipped me or obey every tons to shore only to be shipped off to labor camp. Right? And I decided not to stop, and I kept waited ahead. And like each stat, like took me folder away from North Korea and closer to dream of freedom, which is China, but the Garas kept screaming, but he never the trigger. And then five minutes later, because thing was like the river was like this way, right? Your current us like display, but the Colonel soul fast. So he filed left from here. I ended up here right down down the band. Yeah, doubt like fair to them because like she was like cheap, like chasing, and then I ride it there. And then I wanted to quote filled corn like there's like a bay corn farm when China. No, I'm in China now, and then I, I made it so. So the current took you faster than he could run? Yeah, I could run. So then you ran into? Yeah, like he got lost. He got lost track of me. Oh, wow. Yeah. I guess the part of isn't that he didn't shoot his. He does. She doesn't know where I have. Yeah, he lost. He has to say it doesn't sound like compassionate. Some I was like, we're the healthiest. We're healthy go. You're in a cornfield and you're running hiding, you know, I catch my breath and I took my old clothes and. Yeah. Now. And then like I'm dislike, sitting delicate stunt in a like. Just and they don't chase you into China? No, they can't like it's actually legal to cross the river. Even the let this shit right nymph the legally on a legal term, if the blit lens and China that's warn. Oh, yeah. Also they can't shoot across the river. They saw they can't shoot between in the river because that's not China. That's not North Korea. So in between the river, you're not allowed to shoot. It's it's a law, but North Korea doesn't care anyway because they shoot anyway and to kill people. Anyway, that's what I heard. Like when I was in the refugee camp because a lot of people like like, that's actually like a law into law. You know, they can't shoot the person in the Bhatinda rebirth because that's like nobody's land the river no-man's-land. Yeah, no-man's-land because it's in border. I never heard a gunshot the nominal confidence, like think about where I'm going to go. You're listening to the Jordan harbinger show with our guest, Charles Roux. We'll be.

"Do you have any sense of what people in north korea know about all of this do they know about president trump's tweets referring to quote little rock man d do you have any sense of how this relationship is being portrayed in north korea to most north koreans don't have access to the internet the government does meeting very tight control over the form former information going in and out of north korea and the regime speeds there people this narrative and they're telling their people yes we know you're going without power without food but we have to do this in order to survive and the military drills that the us holds with this with the south koreans sending bombers up the coast and the rhetoric from the us president all feed into that narrative so while the north koreans aren't seeing the tweets they are getting the message from their propaganda that look at this the us president is threatening us and so we need to poor resources into these nuclear weapons to defend you can you give us a sense of what north and south korea will be talking about during these this a planned conversation on tuesday the main discussion will be about sending north korean athletes to the count young olympics starting in february now the north koreans are incredibly savvy they now that the south koreans will see north korean involvement in the olympics s a little bit of an insurance policy against provocation but it is doug also open the way for a better relationship between north and south create so it's really important that they take advantage of that and yet it's going to caused quite a bit of nervousness on the part of washington is what washington doesn't want is for the two koreas to build this relationship without sidelining they do certainly don't want washington to be sidelined this gene actually she's a north korea expert with the wilson center we've cut up with her in london she's normally based in seoul jim thanks so much for speaking with us thanks for having me.

"The olympics will be the focus of talks between north and south korea on tuesday it's the first time the two countries will meet since early two thousand sixteen this comes after a week when president trump continued to make twitter threats against north korean leader kim jong un we wanted to understand how people living in both north and south korea are viewing the escalating rhetoric especially in the weeks before the olympics we're joined now by gene h lee she's a north korea expert at the wilson center she also opened the pyonyang bureau in north korea for the associated press in two thousand twelve and she is one of the few western journalists who spent quite a lot of time in the country gene welcome to the program thanks for having me so we wanted to start with the conversations that people on the korean peninsula are having would've they think about the back and forth between kim jongun and trump back and forth is unsettling factories are somewhat used to these tensions this tension has been going on for decades they don't necessarily think that north quiz going to strike but what they don't know is whether or not don't trump is going to strike this the proximity to the upcoming winter olympics play any role and how people in south korea or feeling about all this the south korean government i can tell you is very nervous about whether provocations will happen during the olympics and the south korean government has doing what it can to try to reassure trysts and athletes that it'll be a secure and safe and successful olympics because they're certainly been questions about whether some countries should should hold our athletes back and it's also another chance for south korea to show the world that they are a developed country despite the security situation so they are doing what they can these government certainly wants to bring about a certain sense the peace and that's why we have these talks coming up this weekend that's very important obviously to the south creams i want to hear about bennett admitted but i did want to ask you about north korea because i think the sense that most people have is that north korea is a country that so closed off from the rest of the world the information doesn't get in.

"Yeah there's definitely a whole bunch of dodgy stuff happening as this is flagged end there hasn't been much concrete put out in the open source m pets recent about an potential illicit trades is military goods especially between north korean pakistan we know that there was a relationship and back in the day that led to cooperation on missiles and probably quite a bit more but there hasn't been much recent at that said i think again it would be a real mistake to assume that there was no other m general north korea paxton trade happening is just probably being routed through third countries which makes it difficult to get visibility on uh again so much of the research that i've done on an dprk you know kind of presence overseas has shown that they wrote that trade in a semi circuitous fashion in which leads or misleads at officials local aid to believe that they don't have much of a a formal north korean at commercial presence on their soil or formal north korean trading relationship with them so i'm sure pakistan has more north korean activity you know in in general economic areas so might need an trading at commodities that are sanctioned but nonmilitary or even trade in commodities at our nonsanctioned m or services services big one for the north koreans overseas so they're certainly some of that too and quite curious with the conversation was like between the north korean ambassador to pakistan and the foreign you know the foreign ministry impacts hit exactly what she saw what he when he demanded the return of his alcohol that was clearly being sold contrary to the laws of pakistan it must have been nn i mean be a fly.

"Stand in the dprk despite the fact that ad there was twelve to fourteen diplomats north korean diplomats stationed in pakistan so the question that these reporters started asking ben was okay well is this a really good example of this size of the embassy being out of proportion to the nature of the bilateral relationship and wet came immediately to my mind is the fact that probably again those trade stats are so misleading because i would guess that there is probably a a decent amount of north korea pakistan trade but that it's not flowing directly from the dprk to pakistan or vice versa it's going through a third country and being reported therefore as you know china pakistan trade sure um and so you know when we take this conclusion that it's totally out of whack the stats are actually helpful in helping you reach that determination and this is important because there's so many countries out there that you know point to the formal trade statistics for bilateral trade and say oh look like we pretty much don't have a relationship with the dprk so you know we're not relevant to sanctions that don't bug us and that's just not the case as you know this incident in pakistan pretty clearly shows and it's interesting the pakistan central bank said they ceased all trade since august 2016 and you said there was fourteen people there so question of course will always leapt to the mind is whether it's illicit controlled substance is like i'll say heroin or are things that are more easily acquired from across the border in afghanistan whether it's uh the alcohol in this case or or more worryingly is whether the links between the kind of nuclear materials are for missile materials whether that it's uh in evidence have you seen any any opeds our analysis that points in that direction or about hopefully we're not looking another a q khan.
