britain's ruling conservative party secures its minority government safety net. with the northern irish. prime minister's election. in. syria israel of aiding terrorists after the i.d.f. bomb syrian troops for the second time in two days the most. the time. our team you. hear from a democratic congresswoman who is pushing to stop washington supplying arms to terror groups in syria. each time we have these wars it has resulted in the strengthening of terrorist groups.
you're watching us from around the world this hour welcome to. my names you know neal good to have your company we begin with breaking news from london british prime minister treason mase conservative party has reached a deal with northern democratic unionist party support for a minority government. we have reached an agreement with the conservative party on support for government and parliament disagreement operate to deliver a stable government in the united kingdom's national interest at this time literally government terms pledged an additional one billion pounds to northern ireland the agreement will also see trees in may by truck election pledges such as
pension benefit reforms still the signing off ten dunning street house or probably some of the d.p. . previous policies churkin approached on the deal for us. it's been over two weeks now since this crash and burn snap election called by theresa may that took place on june eighth leaving the country with an unexpected hung parliament and now it looks like we do indeed have a deal between to reset may's conservative party and the democratic unionists of northern ireland in terms of what specifically has been agreed we do know that the g.o.p. have been promised one billion pounds within the next several years of financial support and one stepping stone that's been quite important and watch since we do know that the do you have been quite insistent on not being huge fans of the hard brags that we have heard now that they have agreed that an exit from the e.u. will benefit all parts of the u.k.
a documents that they have released doesn't get into very much detail this is an agreement that so-called can for confidence and supply which is a bit of a different format and even with the way that statements have been made on how this deal was reached we did see the do you peel leader speak separately there was no joint press conference so certainly we're just going to be waiting for theresa may to address this deal later on. well an opposition m.p. for the labor party has called the deal i grange is an attempt to stay in power by throwing money at the north of aren't radio talk show host and columnist john galt sees trees amaze damage control tactics after the snap election setback have failed . geezer managed to get this group the little coalition together but the do you pretty whole ten see she's still a minority government i think she's going to have real problems lastic kerry called in at the weekend has said that he thinks he'll be prime minister by christmas i
certainly think they'll be in an election by october i think she'll find it very very difficult to hold this government together because don't forget she's got to be pleased to see you please she's also got a really. divided party and the conservative party is still massively divided over the major issue at the moment which is brics it and the e.u. so a my make her a little bit more secure for a few days but this is no one's. moving on the conflict in syria has seen a potentially dangerous new development with the israeli military bombing syrian government positions for the second time in as many days or mideast correspondent paula slee reports from tel aviv. israelis claim that the strikes are in retaliation for cross border shelling from the syrian military earlier this morning monday they were again reports that idea of tanks had fired across the border after another round of mortar fire from syria landed in the israeli side of the golan heights but the israeli army has since said that these reports of foles however
regarding the earlier two incidents of syrian shells landing in israel there's been no proof that in fact it was the syrian military that fired those shells damascus has said that its forces are currently battling terrorists in the area so there's no way to pinpoint exactly who fired the shells damascus has now accused israel of effectively providing cover for the terrorists by bombing the syrian military is one of course has been illegally according to the international community occupying the golan heights since one thousand nine hundred sixty seven israel's bombing of the syrian government forces comes just a week after the u.s. u.s. led coalition shot down as syrian military jet and manned drone u.s. officials often say that they like to lead by example and in this case it seems to apply to what israel is not doing when the united states and its allies target the syrian military which is pretty routine that of course stands a signal to other countries that they might be able to get away with the same kind
of thing and as i mentioned the syrian government is fighting it out on the street terrorists near the border because well well this might just be another example noting because russia has recently accused the u.s. of failing to target this very same terrorist group. we're still seeing a case of double standards from what we've seen in the fight against terrorism in syria were under the impression that these so-called. you know whatever it's called now is being speared on every occasion by the u.s. led coalition and its allies now russia hold its military cooperation in syria with a u.s. led coalition off to the downing of that syrian fighter jet last week a. this latest escalation from israel's bombing of the syrian military is simply a slippery slope for this truly international conflict which is being fought on so . called us leader former u.s. diplomat jim chatteris thinks the timing of the israeli strikes on the syrian
military is suspicious it's one thing for the israelis to say that they will protect their border that's leave because aside the question of what the status of the golan is the bigger question is this is there is there something more behind this then just the israelis responding to what they meant is an errant lending of syrian missiles on their side of the border the anti-government forces in syria are on the ropes that the the basques government is making great gains that there is concern to these terrorist forces by as we know saudi arabia qatar and these other countries with the silent backing of israel and of course the participation of the united states are in big trouble and through these ridley's what that means is that they are quite clear about this that they don't want to see forces allied with iran on their border particularly hizbollah and i think that's the real concern that they're expressing through this action whether it will grow into something major i don't know meanwhile the u.s. government's agenda in syria is coming under increasing scrutiny on capitol hill
democratic lawmakers. is attempting to push a controversial bill through congress that would pressure washington to stop arming terrorists in the country also visited the war torn nation on a fact finding mission earlier this year however so far draft has only attracted the support of fourteen other u.s. lawmakers. we must stop this madness we must stop arming terrorists i'm introducing the stop arming terrorist act today to prohibit taxpayer dollars from being used to support terrorists or to the us congresswoman how she views the situation. in new york i and many others are working hard to continue to build support for this legislation with the goal of getting it passed and ending this policy i think that there has been a concerted effort to both on the part of some in the media as well as
many in politics and many in our foreign policy establishment who have been advocating for a continuance of these regime change wars really ignoring the fact of what has been the consequence of these wars in countries like iraq and libya and syria where each time we have these wars it has resulted in the strengthening of terrorist groups like al qaeda or the creation of isis and it has resulted in a tremendous amount of suffering and death from the people of these countries. six police officers have been injured in london after a protest against police brutality turned violent four people were arrested with the details here. let's. have a. look
at. it all started last night but it carried on into the early hours of the morning and protesters here were throwing great police station they were throwing a beer bottles as well and they were trying to access the building the reason they were so angry was they would demonstrate saying over the death of a twenty five year old local black man his name was federico holster locally he was known as ed said he was a comic cannick he was pulled over by police when he was in his car earlier this month and campaigners say he was brutally beaten some reports even that he may have died as a result of his neck being broken and he died in hospital six days off of that initial incident with the police so the protest as that we had last night set was
saying that all they want to know is how mr de call stood died take a listen. if you could also use. their family members will cry you mobile cry you the floor. of the evening you need to be ready to do what you are trying to bring you the truth i think that we. will the much a politician police have said in a statement that as he was being detained mr dick holds to be. well also you can found that no police offices have been suspended as the every result of this incident with mr de costa the police escort still here in the u.k. is investigating what led to his death the independent police complaints commission and they've already said that in the initial pace north him carried out on mr de
costa hasn't indicated that he died from spinal injuries journalist and broadcaster martin j.c.s. the incident is putting the british authorities under even more pressure the police units investigates who can call digs for potential months which is not ideal. despite the search discrepancy is the so i think the law is now will be on the police commission to see if you can contain this and sold to resume a let's get to resume a is buckling of government is having a very hold on indeed contain the terror attacks and. the sort of irregularities so we're real. governance. but aunt says about what happened to this young man russian investigators say a popular messaging was used to coordinate april's metro bombing in some petersburg the details of it coming up in about ninety seconds.
forty minutes into the program welcome back russian investigators looking into the metro bombing back in april say the attacker and his accomplices used to come traversal encrypted messaging service to plan. the atrocity kevin owen went over the details with. the telegram messaging app is famous for its outstanding levels of privacy with all the encryption but the secret chats just to remind you almost three months ago a suicide bomber killed fifteen people in the st petersburg metro and the investigation into that got to the point when the russian federal security service are saying that at all stages of the preparation both the attacker and whoever
assisted him in russia and abroad were using telegram another thing that they are saying is that telegram with all its encryption features has become the most widely used app by terrorist organizations in russia when it comes to messaging now just a little earlier russia's communications regulator zor said that it could be days away from blocking telegram russian authorities have demanded that the telegraph team provide access to the chats and their crypto keys when and if needed to which the founder of said no and he also added that the privacy and the people's right to it is more important than the fear of terrorism the course is not just telegram there are others as well that a guest could conceivably be used by terrorists as well there's the general public
that's got nothing to do with terrorism and genuinely really praised all the new features that these take this thing out so now like telegram are all varying with the new levels of privacy but the authorities are on high alert and they're absolutely not happy with these loopholes and perhaps that is justified because to research organizations have published at least one hundred reports of the hottest organizations using telegram in the past you were saying that there are other apps that are grading their encryption facilities like watson app developers of that got on. in the u.k. after the terrorist attacks in britain and that was criticism on a very high profile level we want companies to develop tools to identify and remove harmful materials automatically i want to see them report this file contents to the all storage is and block the uses to spread it there should be no place for terrorists to hide we need to make sure that organizations like whatsapp and there
are plenty of others like that don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other we need to make sure that our intelligence services have the ability to get into situations like encrypted whatsapp kevan but the great threat is still out there and since the number of terrorist attacks in europe has only been increasing i guess it is fair to say that the authorities failed to contain it and now they are saying that the only way for them to do it is get access to the chats and crypto keys so in the near future we are bound to hear more debate on that the usual thing security versus progress. italy's center right party has delivered a significant blow to the center left government in sunday's maior lections center right parties made gains in sixteen out of twenty five municipalities and one of the biggest victories was in the northern port city of genoa which has been a traditional left wing stronghold for more than fifty years charlotte port. this
looks like a resoundingly victory for center right parties and a big blow to the ruling democratic party which is the center left coalition now what we've seen in this is that many of the winners who were from center right parties were actually backed by a former prime minister silvio berlusconi very famous a man who was ousted from parliament back in two thousand and thirteen over a tax fraud conviction now what people are suggesting is that these results could see an overwhelming call for the center right parties to really unite into one party to be a force at that general election which i must take place before may of twenty eighteen now that comes of the many voters say that they are disaffected and unhappy with the current government which is led by the democratic party that center left party and that's because of three main issues one of them is the migration emergency italy is seeing thousands of migrants coming into its shores mainly on areas like the island of lampedusa with people arriving from north africa
and italy is struggling to deal with that it's also been struggling to deal with a timid economy for many years it has a high rate of unemployment currently at around eleven or twelve percent and more than that its banking sector is been in dire straits for many years bad debts in the banking center account for around a third of the total debt in the euro zone that's three hundred and fifty billion euros and just on sunday to further banks have to be bailed out yet again to the tune of more billions of euros and many people are unhappy about that so the suggestion is if somebody like silvio berlusconi can overturn his ban be able to run again for public office can reunite sort of the center right parties then we could see a dramatic shift in politics before the next year is over. since his twenty sixteen presidential campaign donald trump has been promising to bring the nation together. i say it is time for us to come together as one
united people we may have our differences we are strongest when we are unified however the divisions appear to have deepened since last year's election pitting not only political opponents but even us states against each other with more here skill have not been. liberal california is unhappy with some of its conservative sister states it's ban state sponsored travel to texas alabama south dakota and kentucky with north carolina mississippi kansas and tennessee already on the list these sanctions of sorts are bringing up some interesting historical memory. california says that it's taking this action in response to what it says is discrimination against lesbian gay bisexual and transgender people each of those states in the recent weeks have been acted legislation that may deprive some of the
individuals of those states and individuals who visit those states of their constitutional rights there are consequences to discrimination restricting state sponsored travel is a consequence i think of just trying to cause infighting in the u.s. i think be all to make goal of liberals in some kind of civil war and that's where that's their goal at least for the lone star state is fighting back texas to long with twelve other states is threatening to sue california for its climate change initiative which discloses companies investments in fossil fuels now the governor of california has announced that he's ready to fight against the republicans in d.c. california and other states and other provinces throughout the world will step up there's already been talk of a calyx or this liberal state behemoth breaking away from the rest of the country seem to be escalating right now in a war of words between the conservative forces in california california is more to the left of the trowbridge and. so right now california is one of the more
progressive states in this country and not to be outdone a few texans are now raising the idea of secession and raising the lone star flag once again we are advocating for texas leaving the union we've been doing this now for well over a day and we've you know in this last legislative session we came closer and we were. war there are going to be going to be leaving the union and it's going to happen sooner rather than later if you pay attention to american politics it's pretty clear that folks don't see eye to eye but are we really getting back to civil war levels where we all can't be one country some folks certainly think so and the gap between the liberal and conservative states is only getting bigger tale of mopp and artsy new york. guitar has been accused of creating a tense military standoff with regional powers in the mideast by bahrain's top diplomat qatar is currently facing an ultimatum from its neighbors after
accusations the country is supporting terrorists the bahraini foreign minister said the dispute was initially only political but suggested that seoul changed after turkey passed a law to increase its military presence in qatar turkish president reject sees the ultimatum breaches qatar's sovereignty. we see the attitude regarding the thirty nine articles in contradiction with international law because that cannot be such an attack on the rights of a state over its agreements with other states in fact here we see an attack against the state's rights. well among the of the mons presented to qatar is the immediate withdrawal of turkish troops in the country it's also demanded that diplomatic ties with iran be curbed on missions and the closure of broadcaster al jazeera and its affiliate stations is also on the list on friday qatar was given ten days to agree to all the demands on this ultimatum on the crisis in the region house saying washington sending out some mixed signals while u.s.
president donald trump supported the blockade of qatar calling doha a funder of terror the state department has questioned the motives behind it meanwhile the u.s. signed a twelve billion dollar arms deal with ataris just this month a former turkish ambassador to the u.s. believes the demands are unreasonable that the crisis could take a turn for the worse. look at a big big list of demands. rather refer to it not all tomatoes. touched the toilet so while the total states are sudden. the amount should be reasonable and actionable not another reasonable not a boat so we are looking at the situation a crisis to get even worse more news at the top of the hour stay with us.
again on this edition of the program we focus on real news this is the war in syria escalating so he's driving it the latest in the qatar saudi arabia saga and so many imply an extended version. hello welcome to. shevardnadze like much of the world the e.u. is going through a turbulent time massive immigration. security threat to the very foundation
of the union well living with the common challenges bring closer together or. were here add to your reign him media forum. and much more with the former euro commission president. bush and the rise of euro skepticism scaring european politicians into promises of reform while the downturn in relations with the west is making brussels think about a tighter union in europe but with so many different voices inside the bloc can it really pick a single direction to move forward in how will the powerhouse of the union bring the newer member states in line and will the powerful stronger integration lead the e.u. to new horizons or the complete break. plus one hundred virus so it's really great having you on our show today welcome to pleasure so that talk all about it and what's going on in european union right now i met quite a lot of european politicians officials and most of them are saying that maybe if
there is a little too much integration maybe there is a bit of effect amongst the people about the integration so in your opinion if that's the case how should the ruling will or work without a consolidated. idea especially if people are a little tired of it well. as always being that voice kind of. fundamental discussions about the more europe or less europe we have to be pragmatic there are areas where we need more integration there are areas where probably we could reverse some of the that sometimes appears to intrusive but frankly i don't think it is always helpful to have discussions of ideological philosophical debates about more or less europe because based on my
experience of living u.p.a. and commission ten years what i have seen was that even in times of crisis the moon is too cute financial and sovereign that we have in europe at least since the second world war it was possible for you pinion to make progress for instance we have now some elements of a banking union with a common supervisory mechanisms common resolution mechanism that would be considered unthinkable before the crisis so for instance for the countries want to have a common currency definitely it's needed more integration so yeah let's talk about the concrete steps because i know that the and here are being touted by politicians which would mean that there are states in iraq like kress and germany who want to tatar integration whoever wants to follow and whoever doesn't want to tatar interation then you know they can just say once again i don't think these regions grow.
