although hospitalizations and deaths remain low. now, as we mentioned earlier, countries like italy, spain and the u. s. have been easing quarantine rules for those infected erin sorrow as an assistant professor, microbiology and immunology at georgetown university. she says the science backs the u. s. cdc's decision to shorten the recommended time violation. it's still a 10 day process, and this is something that was developed and, and decided on, based on the science that we've gathered on oma. and the idea is that if you test positive, you isolated home for 5 days, and if you are asymptomatic or if you clear your symptoms, therefore you don't have a fever after 24 hours or for at least 24 hours, i should say. then that is followed by a 5 day period where you should be masking around others. so it's still 10 days. it's just now 5 days. so my solution and then 5 days of wearing
a mask. if you have cleared your symptoms or if you have always been asymptomatic and that's based on what we're understanding on the replication and transmission rates of all micron for a delta, i think it's important to consider that that 10 day quarantine at home for those that are on vaccinated, they really need to stay at home if they become sick and, and home ice late for those 10 days. this guidance has really been updated based on what i think we've learned based on breakthrough case. it was on the cra, hamas has denounced a visit to israel by palestinian president, mac newt abbas his meeting with the israeli defense minister penny counts. was the fust in the country in more than a decade. i'm a spokesman said it deepens the palestinian political division and complicates the situation. county office said a series of confidence building measures were discussed, including the transfer of payments to the palestinian authority. usaa motion
presidents will speak on the phone on thursday as tension surrounding ukraine continues to escalate. the white house national security council says joe bought and requested the call to vladimir putin and it comes ahead of us. russian talks in geneva next month. motion to nato countries have expressed concern about russia's ministry build up along the border with ukraine. it's been 10 years since came john own became the leader of north korea. he took control back in 2011 after the death of his father, kim john in while his leadership style has been widely criticized a broad few at home dec question, his grip on power touch hello has heard a young report. so he became north korea's leader before turning 30 at the time many hope king jam own would lead the country into a new era. one though it opened the reclusive nation and its economy to the world.
these undertaken ones only have 100 got instead kim's decade empower has been defined by brutal violence, nuclear weapons and meetings with donald trump. later, we will have to work with them. it wasn't easy to get here. and o prejudices and practices worked as obstacles in a white forward, but we are became all of them. and we're here today. i'm president of meetings to gradually the nuclear arise, the north in exchange for sanctions relief, ultimately failed, and threats against regional neighbors and their allies continued. you will want to join it, he will. the entire united states is within range of all nuclear weapons, and the nuclear pasa is always on my desk. but kim's fixation on nuclear weapons has come at a heavy price. the united nations and others have kept tough economic sanctions to ga ga. could young book put north korea has been working towards to huge goals,
strengthening national defense, and improving living standards. living situation got worse because of sanctions of the pandemic. if all honey kim's appetite for international respect has led him to the global stage, but his leadership has been described as ruthless with reports of executions, including against his own brother, rivals and dissidence, say, poverty, and starvation are rampant ah, to mark 10 years since the death of his father, king john ill, north koreans were reportedly band from laughing, drinking or shopping for 11 days. came now leads of political dynasty, spending 3 generations. that few dare question. nissan fish that are foreigners hold on kim is emulating his grandfather because many people missed the past. so he tried to look and dread similar to his grandfather and shed tears while giving speeches. that's ca split them. union don't get much is still unknown about the
young leader, including his long term plans for north korea, katya lopez, so the young al jazeera, i speak to daniel pinson. he is a lecture of international relations at troy university, joins us now. life from so many thanks. for joining the program, daniel. so i north korea, in the middle of a key party meeting. do you think we are get clues on the country stands on nuclear talks with the u. s, which have been at a stalemate for some time. now. thanks for having me. yes, the party meeting is going on. the plenary it should end up today or tomorrow would be very unusual if it were to extend past the new year. that would be a sign of some divisions within the party leadership. but i don't anticipate that it all is far as nuclear talks are, are d nuclear zation. the north korean leadership is always happy to engage in dialogue
or diplomacy as a peer nuclear weapons state. they might engage in some type of arms control or some kind of caps. but as far as the nuclear ization it's absolutely inconceivable . ringback it would contradict all of the leaderships beliefs in ideology. so i think we have to be realistic about any talks that might come in the future. talk us through some of the challenges that north korea faces today after a decade of kim john at his helm. well, the regime is wedded to a classical socialist economy and socialist development. it's repressive dictatorship. of course, it's a hybrid economy. people point out that markets have flourished in there have been market activities. kim, dylan has tolerated market allocation more so than his father did. however, economic sanctions have been brutal and even more so the pandemic,
because of coven northridge has closed down its order, and trade has dropped to a trickle. so, smuggling and trade had been a lifeline through the underground market economy. but that informal economic sector is really been taking a difficult hit because of this pandemic. and now the regimes under greater resource scarcity than usual. and they're trying to navigate their way through this economic hardship. do we have any real idea about how ordinary north koreans feel about his leadership? well, that's difficult to, to, to say, even the leadership, those with the best information inside north korea are skeptical about the information. so leaders in dictatorships, they have to monitor a loyalty. the very concerned about loyalty, but even if you're dis, loyal to the regime,
you have to feign loyalty. so that's something that the dictators are concerned with. and they have better information than we do. but i'm convinced there's a lot of dissatisfaction in north korea, but of course, expressing that is not a very good idea for your own personal survival. minge ian of south korea is reaching the end of his term. how much pressure does that put on south korea? the u. s. to reach some sort of a conversation with north korea. well, president moon has been invested in seeking reconciliation with, with north re spend a lot of personal capital and political capital on that. i, however, of his, his term is coming to an end. so he's thinking about legacy issues. i would argue that the national interests are much longer term and out live the personalities.
so i don't expect any kind of a sudden reconciliation or some kind of piece agreement. i think we can be in this equilibrium, this sub standard or sub optimal equilibrium for a long time into the future. daniel kingston lecture, if international relations at troy university, thank you for your time. my pleasure. well, d, nicolai's, asian off the korean peninsula is one of the u. s. president j biden's foreign policy priorities 2022 may see a pivot from the oval office and pressing global issues. and the growing threats from china and fish explains if the white house was a circus. joe biden would be plate spinner in chief as he enters into his 2nd year in the oval office. good afternoon. he's got a lot to do with internationally and domestically. this is a world wide challenge and the consequences if one of the plates fall could be the
effect of end of his presidency by the end of the year. top of the list of challenges like it was when he was sworn, n is covered after confidently claiming he was in his words kicking the viruses. but in july it came roaring back. and no oma crone has to be dealt with a lot, don't is unlikely. another economic shock isn't and with job numbers not really should be, and the cost of basic goods rising. president biden need some good news for american families. he delivered an infrastructure built his build back better bill is essentially dead. but he still believes he can get parts of it through congress, increasing help to american families. but some washington watchers say he still has other campaign promises to deliver. democrats have been so badly out messaged in their messaging a so atrocious that or even with bill back barrow, they're going to have a difficult time. they have lost the bad all the messaging battle on inflation and
inflation is indeed hurting a lot of americans then brings mid term elections normally considered a referendum on those in the white house. i'm not recommending for every future president that they take a shall lacking, like very like i did last night. biden has an approval rating of under 50 percent. that could mean him losing the house, maybe even the senate. they try getting anything done in washington with both houses, not in your control. what is happening in the plan. so he could turn to foreign policy to get winds before the 2024 presidential election. were those closest to one. so you run against the pictures of the frantic withdrawal from afghanistan on the bike and white house. if the country again becomes a base for islam militants, he'll be at the button for the failures of his and other administrations. he wants a new nuclear deal with iran, there are talks, but the half the deliver america is worried about china's growing influence is
expanded military, it's economic power. talks between the 2 leaders effectively went nowhere. ari and then there's russia with cyber attacks, increased activity on the u, came border. biden's white house seems to be waiting to respond to what comes next . i think he's already had some important foreign policy successes. i think that the united states has sent a strong signal to russia with european partners out of russia invaded ukraine, would pay major costs. and i think that's likely to continue to deter russia from invading ukraine, going forward as biting heads into the new year. he's hoping, delivering big domestic success will make americans feel better about where the country is going. we can deliver real people, results that are going to affect our lives. but if they don't, they could decide they don't like the act. and it's time for the bite and circus to move on. i'll and fisher, i'll just either washington the russian and u. s. envoys said that ron euclid talks have mess on the sidelines of the
negotiations in vienna. moscow's representative said coordination between them was key to restoring the deal. it comes off conflicting messages about progress on the 8th round of discussions. iran and russia say a deal is with in site that washington is expressing caution. sharon wants guarantees that sanctions on all its oil sales will be lifted. memorial services have been held across south africa for anti apartheid icon. the archbishop desmond tutu who c c o into faith services were held in memory of the nobel peace prize laureate, south africa is observing a week of national mourning for 22 who died at the age of 90. he was the 1st black archbishop of cape town and rose to prominence in the 1980s as an opponent of apartheid to his funeral beheld on year's day.
ah! this is al jazeera, these you top stories, delta a nama con, variance of coven 19 a fueling monitor, w h o, cause a soon army of cases sweeping across the globe. on average $900000.00 new infections are being reported each day around the world. this virus will continue to evolve and threaten our health system if we dont improve the collective response, right? no delta and or me, kron are tween threats that are driving up cases to record numbers which again.
