avoidance measures. analysts say this latest report makes it hard for citizens to trust their leaders, including in the middle east, inadequate, exposes, much more and, and just asked and he exposes this explicit me, actually he, and, and my me that is that it is, i think from this when an intersection between business and ernestine makes use of the, ah, the allegations in the pandora papers are just that allegations. there is no proof that leaders mentioned in the stories broke any laws, whether those laws should be changed is a matter for public debate. rosalind jordan al jazeera washington on to other news on sol, says north korea and south korea have restored a stoled communication channel. chung, cut the hotline in august, in protest against military drills, which so conducted with the united states last month, telling us that it may consider a summit with its southern neighbour,
5:05 am
rob mcbride's in hong kong to cover this one for us today. hi, rob festival, for people who don't know, can you tell us about this hotline and how it will, how it did work? these hot lines are very important. they are the lines of communication across the dmc between the north and the south. it prevents any accidental misunderstandings. it's very important that they are kept open, given the fragility of relations and the, the amount of arguments along the d, m. z. now, they tend to be cotton restored depending on how relations are at any given point in time. at a cost with the dipping relations that we saw in the last year or $2.00 with the ab, with the ending alpha negotiations over at north korea's nuclear austell, los st. all those talks became stoled. the north reacted very badly to that, and it was in june of last year that they took the step of cutting all of the communication lines and even going as far as destroying with explosives and liaison
5:06 am
officer been set up. what during better times be when relations were, were better between the north and the south. so it is important that they are kept open and they were cut 2 months ago again because of the north, protesting against military exercises in the south. the south is hoping that this time they will stay up a fo a permanently because they are hoping that this could be done. we have to use the caveat, said that it, this is only a possibility that there might be a stop now of better relations. but certainly the south is as welcome this move and saying that it could now stabilize and restore relations with the north. yeah, i mentioned young said it may even consider a summit with solomon that would be under the current situation or a huge step forward that has been mentioned has been measured by kim jo, john, that's the influential a sister of kim jong on the leader of north korea that was mentioned just over a week ago and that follows a, a no, but your from moon jay,
5:07 am
in the president of south korea who is desperate to try to restore relations. he's now well into his final year in office. he's a liberal presidency, made it his mission to try to restore relations. everybody knows he has only got so many months left in office and he could be replaced by a conservative. so the north knows that better than anybody else that this is their opportunity. if they're going to win concessions from the south from some sort of negotiations than they have to act now. so we do see this a strange jewel strategy that while they have these diplomatic efforts coming from the north, they are continuing with their missile efforts reducing an increase in their launching of short range ballistic missiles. but as far as the north is concerned, it's part of the same strategy. it keeps up the pressure and it reminds the south that the clock is ticking. rob mcbride with those are updates on what's happening in at north and south korea. thank you. up. that is 13 people been killed in an explosion in the afghan capital. cobble the bombing target at the entrance of the
