11:06 pm
about trying to free his northern brethren, but i also sense some frustration. he believes that he has all of this political knowledge, insight and knowledge that he would like to impart to others. i think also when it comes to really alerting our viewers, remember he defected in 2014. much of what he alleges is historical. but it does give us an insight into the inside of the regimejust give us an insight into the inside of the regime just as a new, young kimjong—un came of the regime just as a new, young kim jong—un came to power. of the regime just as a new, young kimjong—un came to power. indeed, and this revelation that kim jong—un would never give up nuclear weapons, what kind of message does it send to the biden administration as well as north korea peasant neighbours like south korea and japan? i don't think i have met a north korean dictator who have said that north korea would ever be willing to give up its
11:07 pm
nuclear—weapons and i think it serves as a timely reminder to those who would be willing to negotiate and are looking to negotiate with north korea, remember within the last few weeks kim jong—un has indicated that he may be willing to talk if conditions are met and when it comes to that, i think south korea are looking and desperately hoping that the north will start to engage with them as well. when it comes to disarmament, that may be a separate conversation. separately, north korea is under huge strict international sanctions to try to get them to give up their nuclear weapons, but within the last month alone they have tested for new weapons systems, which shows that even under dire economic conditions, which they are at the moment, they are able to continue to build weapons. it shows also the kind of activity the regime is willing to go to to survive, whether it comes to selling weapons or perhaps producing
11:08 pm
counterfeit money as he also alleges. when comes to making drugs, as they have been in the past. these are allegations that have come from not just this carnal are allegations that have come from notjust this carnal but other north korean defectors in the past. it is an open secret within the north korea watching community but it shows that when it comes to this regime they are prepared to survive at all costs so that is something which when it comes to making calculations with regard to negotiations that perhaps negotiators may need to take into account. laura, thank you so much for that. and you can see the full version of that interview with the defected north korean kernel on the 16th of october here on bbc world news. china has accused taiwan cosmic president of inciting tension as tensions mount over the island's

future. they have said that the speech was deserted. the president had responded defiantly to a warning ijy had responded defiantly to a warning by the chinese leader that taiwan would have to unify with china. she said the country would continue to bolster its defences. china's leaders consider the island are part of their territory. last week, china sent an unprecedented number of military aircraft into taiwan's air defence zone. irate military aircraft into taiwan's air defence zone.— military aircraft into taiwan's air defence zone. we will continue to bolster our _ defence zone. we will continue to bolster our national _ defence zone. we will continue to bolster our national defence - defence zone. we will continue to bolster our national defence and l bolster our national defence and demonstrate our determination to defend ourselves so that nobody can force taiwan to take the path that china has laid out for us. this is because the path that china has laid out offers neither a free and democratic way of life for taiwan nor sovereignty for our 23,000,000 people. find nor sovereignty for our 23,000,000 --eole. �* i ii i ii people. and here is the latest from our china correspondent, _ people. and here is the latest from our china correspondent, who - people. and here is the latest from our china correspondent, who is . people. and here is the latest from our china correspondent, who is in | our china correspondent, who is in taiwan. i think it is unlikely that
11:10 pm
the address today was a direct response with what the chinese leader said yesterday. her remarks were planned long in advance. as you say, china has reacted. this clearly is china pushing back. it showsjust how far we have come from the register decade or so ago when the 2 sides looked to find a compromise, putting aside their differences, essentially kicking the question of exactly what taiwan was down the line and just strengthening business ties. the president of taiwan today made it clear that that era is over because of the direction that china is taking. it is growing increasingly authoritarian. she cited what has happened in hong kong as a warning to the people of taiwan and she is saying that it is
11:11 pm
taiwan's democracy, its unique identity that needs to be emphasised and this was really an appeal to allies in the region like japan but also further afield and in particular an appeal to washington. let's now take a look at some of these stories making headlines in these stories making headlines in the uk. ireland's foreign minister has said that the uk's demands for changes to the northern ireland protocol could cause a breakdown in relations with the eu. the brexit minister lord frost has said that he wants the european court ofjustice removed from oversight of the deal. the french authorities are calling on the british government to honour its promise to contribute more than $68,000,000 to help them prevent migrants from crossing into england by boat. hundreds of people have attempted the journey in the past 2 days alone, leading to further tension between france and the uk. more than 40,000,000 people in the uk are being offered a flu jab this year. the health security agency
