6:07 am
a message to the united states two months after denuclearization talks with donald trump in vietnam failed they praised each other extensively clearly showing the world that their very first meeting was a success it's a third foreign trip this year for kim jong il who is staying here at the university campus his long and what he described as candid discussions would fly to me put in not only shows that he has to turn to but also that he has options before considering signing a denuclearization deal with the united states put in said kim has asked him to convey north korea's position to the u.s. government the russian president will also meet chinese president xi jinping in the next few days while russia has not been included in talks about the korean peninsula for some time this summit might have brought putin's involvement a little closer step fastens al-jazeera. russia. u.s. president pledged to pay two million dollars to north korea to refund the cost of
6:08 am
caring for. according to reports in the washington post the american student twenty into a coma after being detained and tortured in north korea and later died after being returned to the united states and identified sources told the post that a u.s. official promised to pick up the bill for his medical care as a condition for flying him back home the official was under president trump's instruction but it's not clear if the bill was ever paid. well meanwhile the former u.s. vice president joe biden has officially entered the race for the white house it's the third time he's run for the democratic nomination in his lengthy political career but the first in which he actually enters as a frontrunner and as our white house correspondent kimberly hellcat reports it's a very crowded democratic field so glad to be here with you today never before have the candidates to become the u.s. democratic presidential nominee been more diverse of the twenty running many are
6:09 am
candidates of color and female joe biden is neither in the battle for the soul of this nation that might be one reason biden chose the issue of race in his announcement video to be a candidate for u.s. president america tonight. i did a stronger bigger than the ocean more powerful than any dictator tyrant he's confronted his vulnerability and selling it as a strength. he says with u.s. president donald trump blamed the deadly twenty seventeen white supremacist rally in charlottesville and both sides are new the threat to this nation. like any are never seen in my lifetime biden argues that despite looking a lot like trump his views are starkly different or touch with the issues progressive and younger voters care about but biden's decades of experience as a vice president and senator also present challenges will be scrutinized for past
6:10 am
traditional views he says have changed over time on issues of race and women's rights last month he defended himself against accusations of inappropriate touching of women. and changed. and. given five and shifting positions of many younger a progressive voters continue to support senator bernie sanders candidacy. they see bided as the old guard. washington failed to stop trump any progressive see sanders as a consistent challenger of the democratic party's establishment wing joe biden has a wealth of experience decades of experience the problem is joe biden's record is all over the map but perhaps one of the best measures of biden's vulnerability comes from his former running mate president barack obama america's first black
6:11 am
president obama's spokesperson so far has praised biden's candidacy but stopped short of endorsing biden were the words you don't believe in the moment joe biden will have to convince the diverse and useful members of the democratic party that is seventy six year old white man is the only candidate that can defeat president donald trump it's a paradox that biden will have to work to overcome kimberly helped get al jazeera the white house well let's talk more about this was shawn zeller who was that he had a tour of congressional quarterly magazine and he joins us live now from washington d.c. sir thank you for joining us welcome to al-jazeera we were just hearing our correspondent there saying that of course still biden's going to have to convene said the democrats specially the younger members i mean how do you think he's going to do that what would you say is is unique selling points to use that phrase i think is a unique selling point is that he served for eight years under
6:12 am
a very popular democratic president barack obama who made inroads in all parts of the country and was particularly popular among youth and i think you make the case that he can carry on obama's legacy if he's elected so it would sort of be the reflected glory from barack obama. absolutely and i think that will go a long way i mean the democratic party for all its divisions is still united around barack obama and that his presidency was something that americans should be proud of. and i mean the presidency obviously was supported by democrats and a lot of other people for the eight years that obama was president but we're seeing a lot of shifts right now we're seeing a lot of more diverse set women more you know people from ethnic minorities as well do you think that would count against them do you think that maybe that shows that it's actually quite a weak field right now among the democrats is someone like joe biden has already
6:13 am
tried to get the nomination twice is trying again and he's the frontrunner well i think he's the front runner because he's the he was the sitting vice president that sort of automatically gives him the name recognition around the country that puts him high in the early polls but the polls are very early and as you mentioned the progressive base of the democratic party is not with biden they're itching for something new. they're very among them bernie sanders is very popular there is also a number of women candidates and hillary clinton's defeat has i think fired up a lot of progressive women around the idea that the next democratic candidate should also be a woman and it should be a woman who dethroned president trump so biden has a long way to go yet but he certainly as you mentioned is the front runner and he's leading in those early polls of course biden announcing his candidacy was you know
6:14 am
not not a surprise for many do you think we are going to see some other surprise candidates before of course the democrats actually announce who their nominee is. it certainly seems that way i mean we've had a number of surprises just in the last couple weeks a number of house members eric swalwell from california and seth moulton from massachusetts jumping in the race i think they say pete democrats see this as a wide open field where if they do well in some of the early primary states which may not take much it may not it may only take a small percentage of the vote to be among the top vote getters given how many candidates are in the race that you very well could see others putting their hat in i'm not going to ask you to name names but we'll qualities do you think whoever the democratic nominee is chosen will have to have if they're going to defeat donald trump. well i mean it's an interesting question i had the
6:15 am
democratic candidates are are going in different directions and that all of those directions seem viable for example lizabeth war in the senator from massachusetts is focusing on progressive policy ideas and she's putting forth a lot of proposals whereas a lot of the other candidates are focusing more on their opposition to president trump and some candidates like harris or bernie sanders are are framing themselves as the polar opposites of trump and then you have candidates like to judge the south bend indiana mayor who's gotten a lot of early attention by presenting just a sort of different image a younger image a new generation and so i think you know all of those ideas seem seem viable at the moment we'll see how it shakes out we will indeed sean zeller deputy editor of congressional quarterly magazine joining us from washington sir thank you. still to
6:16 am

6:26 am
doesn't represent them so what i meant all my call did was come up with a raft of new policies that he says will address those grievances things like tax cuts for the middle classes reducing the number of politicians the number of m.p.'s there are and also making it more easier more of a meritocracy in france easier to get into some of france's top schools that are seen by many as being are symbols of elitism and i know michael said it was time to invest more in education more in young people and more in small towns and villages and not focus so much on the big cities this was a change of form and style for the french president he was more informal more approachable critics in the past have often said he's to our current and aloof his policies were based on the findings of the grand debate an initiative he launched in january in order to people to give people a platform to air their grievances and concerns are whether or not though these
6:27 am
policies in the speech will be enough to end the yellow vest protests which we've seen across france the past five months is unclear but what am i don't want to do is to try to appeal to as many people as possible he knows he can't please everyone but his main concern will be to show people that he has listened and he's trying to act. an eleven day campaign of climate protests designed to cause major disruption to london has now come to an end extinction rebellion demonstrators targeted the city's financial district on their final day more than three hundred people glued themselves to the walls of the london stock exchange and blocked roads around the bank of england and goldman sachs but testers have been calling on the u.k. government to the clear a climate emergency and take radical action on climate change needs parker takes a look back at the protests. after several weeks of protests activists from extinction rebellion now say that they're willing to suspend their activities for

6:31 am
colony is between a fourteen thousand and twenty four thousand breeding pairs so it's a big colony it's a quibble and to about eight or nine percent of the global population so it's a significant colony however we've seen in the past that sometimes you get a complete failure at some colonies we know that colonies move so that's not what is interesting about this observation what is unique about this is that this colony is deep in the world will say it's an area where we expect to stay colder as the world warms so it's an area which we can think of as a refuge for and preparing winds so if in their refuges they are also vulnerable to severe storm or vents and that means those safe places aren't as safe
