No More Nuclear Weapon
South and North Korea confirm the common goal to realize complete denuclearization, a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. This is in the statement signed by North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and the South’s president, Moon Jae-in, after their meeting at the border village of Panmunjom.
The event, at the Peace House, a conference building on the South Korean side of Panmunjom can set the tone for the even more critical summit meeting between President Trump and Mr. Kim. The two leaders are known for their being bold and unpredictability. Their actions put the world on the edge last year with threats of a nuclear war.
Robredo’s Social Media Fight
The Filipino Vice President is currently at war with Manila Times columnist Rigoberto Tiglao. He writes an opinion piece about Robredo to suggest that she confers with the European Parliament officials. This is during her last trip to Germany. The writer claims that she and her colleagues in the Liberal Party urge the European lawmakers to release a resolution condemning extrajudicial killings during President Rodrigo Du30’s term.
Robredo said that she talks to the members of the German government and civil society organizations about poverty and social injustice. She is earlier found to have circulated fake news herself. This is when she cites Ilocos Norte, the Marcoses’ bailiwick as one of the poverty-stricken provinces due allegedly to the political dynasty. This is despite the fact that it is one of the most progressive and even possesses better statistics progress-wise compared to her own province. In an interview, the VP shares her assumptions on the origin of the extreme hate she receives online. She can only tag her vice presidential rival, former senator Bongbong Marcos as the alleged culprit.
