1:15 pm
jonathan listening in listening to the president's speech, there was a heart warming speech or that we heard that from the president from you. oh certainly was over the president also recalling how the archbishop desmond tutu was at the front and center of the fight against a party and racial segregation. how this wasn't a man who just preached from the pulpit, but he was on the ground with the people in many causes, were there, it was the racial segregation at the time, or even after the dawn of democracy in south africa and actually acknowledging some of the criticisms that the archbishop had against, against the existing african national congress. a government led by solar um, of course are talking about how there was still issues around our poverty and corruption in south africa and how some of the criticism and the complaints from the archbishop have been heard. and now he continues to be a moral compass. he also dealt with some of the work that the archbishop did
1:16 pm
during the transition to democracy, specifically as a co chair, person of the truth and reconciliation commission. and just how the archbishop responded quite emotionally to some of the testimony at that commission around some of the things that was said, the atrocities committed during apartheid. but essentially, and ultimately how the archbishop was a, at the, at the forefront of pushing people to forgive. and really allowing south africa to develop some sort of hope, despite the challenges of the country faced and continues to face. we've also been hearing that the sir. fact that goes from 2 to had this real ability to connect to the ordinary person. we have heard that throughout the funeral service to day a couple of anecdotes just about how humble he is. um, but he was brother and be heard again from president slid. i'm a poor sir,
1:17 pm
that i should. the archbishop have been active. his own funeral service. he would have looked around the room and said, why is everybody so glad i'm trying to elicit a smile from people then. and that is what the archbishop was known for that humanity or that sort of common touch and being able to connect with people. and this is also how he was also able to contribute to uniting a very divided south africa and coining the phrase rainbow nation. and he says, a legacy that ultimately was, is really just superior to wine, left by many other people. and as you mentioned, it's just simply not anybody who can attain that sort of global stature, global iconic stature, and that to desmond to, to we're certainly very special in terms of the work he did in south africa and globally with regard to oppression of people. anyway, in the world or from from there, thanks very much dee for that. the south african,

1:22 pm
north. i demand the algae 0 not currently that came along and has laid out his new year plan for the country without making any specific comments about the united states or south korea. state media report that his main goals are economic development and improving people's lives as the country faces. what he has described as a great life and death struggle. let's take this straight away. we can speak to robert kelly who's a professor of political science and diplomacy. the present national university joined us live now from goose on. welcome robert kelly, an unexpected tone from what we might typically expect. yeah, i mean, normally that our brians leader uses the annual speech to rattle the saver and talk about nuclear weapons and north prius and willingness to fight all opponents and things like that. and that's pretty typical renter from, from ne, in me you're going back decades initially. you really didn't get that, which is one of the reasons why i think that there's been some focus on this. there was some emphasis,
1:23 pm
particularly on things like food and growth and pretty big world development. and all that's great because actually i really need that right countryside, northgate most impoverished. and so kim jong and actually means that that would actually be a good thing. but it also kind of probably signals that north korea is back into security and malnutrition. right? but why the change in tone right now? because food security is always been an issue. there is no. you haven't tried to the last couple years, the north koreans and taking a really, really hard line on over they sealed off the water completely 11 or chris. international trade is already very difficult because of all the sanctions because of the nuclear weapons program, division. 2016, the sanctions on quite step. and so then our grams were really, depending on the border change with china and that has all been shut down. and our team is taking, like i said, it's a really strict hard line. and that's probably because northridge lacks the, yeah, the medical facilities, the grassroots, to deal with real co it outbreak that were to happen. and so the result though,
1:24 pm
of completely sealing yourself off has been the, the continued power to be of the rural sector and probably mount attrition. we don't know them or don't tell us much, but that's probably we're going to say, is it possible to gauge just how di the situation is not really right. and are things are very good about giving us information. and as we're misinforming us and giving foreign observers and un observers and things like that, the world food program and whether you want agencies to operate and work through. but a lot of that has really been restricted, north, principally kicked out a lot of foreigners in the last couple years. so we don't really know. we have some kind of information from north korean to escape across the border and interact with 3. and i think koreans live in northern china as we get some kind of informal price data through them. but i'm in a north korean don't actually keep track of their own g d p for example, right? in our turns, you barely functions rights. not all the use. and so no, we don't actually really have a good picture of it that a final thought do we take the speech as it sounds?
1:25 pm
do we read between the lines here, what's going on behind the scenes? well, i mean if you want to change the relationship with the rest of the world, actually say this would be the big moment to say it, right? that will make a deal and exchange for, you know, some kind of a package or something like that. but there, emphasizing food security and malnutrition probably tells us that there is an economic crisis of some kind of north credit, wouldn't be surprised, given the border shut down over co. what i mean, what we really can't we, on the outside the side mentoring issues, the strategic issues that we on the outside really care about. there was really no mention of that, right. and will be nice nor things that you know, maybe maybe we'll make a deal on new thing. we'll, we'll stop building if you give us x, y z. and him hasn't said that he hasn't said that for a while, right? we don't really have a good sense of what they might actually, you know, we would want months in exchange. so to find the pre, so, you know, we're still basically stuck in a strategic dilemma. all right, appreciate respect. if robert kelly, thanks very much sarah. tell you that from present national university. next,
1:26 pm
