2:04 pm
some policy measures so we can push for an argument where the tension we can see the government no i think the south in a very very dangerous position election in a by the by the lack of success that she had in their lives when just weeks since the general election the british council has been hit by a number of mass anti-government protests. i was right. i. was. of the tea with. the. tensions over the migration crisis have been rising sharply in is silly and he might want activists counted in rome to protest against refugee shelters in their country but in the city of genoa about two thousand

2:07 pm
responsibility of europe there is far too much immigration it's really cannot support arriving migrants. they do nothing because their policies don't work they just talk. they have to help you know we're bearing the financial burden you know i want other states france spain and others to do their part in helping the migrants because this prime minister didn't along he said everyone turns away and pretends not to see to do nothing is wrong europe needs to help out the european union has provided financial aid to it says. and now e.u. have said that they cool to open up ports along the mediterranean coast such as say in. spain but that is likely to be met with great resistance. and some people suggest that what the european commission is saying is little more
2:08 pm
than. some countries need to do more to do their share in distributing the refugees poland hungary and the czech republic have not accepted a single refugee from a. unfortunately we have no progress on the question of distribution of migrants within the european union and we stand in solidarity with the italian government and the italian people and we will make available all possible assistance and support it seems there's a lot of poor but very little action from the powers that be in europe imo meanwhile italy is continuing to sink under the strain of the michael crisis charlotte. r.t. sicily. artie shaw of dubai and skills i spoke to sarah at a young career from doctors without borders who described what it's actually like to rescue migrants in the mediterranean. this is the prudent spirit how many
2:09 pm
people have. rescued in these seas. people. just with. all of the conditions. have been the scariest. because you have people coming on. to be honest. many people. and sometimes they're dead people and people have drowned. because of the panic and also because. they panic because they're.

under the. water gets in there as well the conditions are it's very challenging physically and also emotionally. mentally because you have to prepare yourself for anything. that could be. anything what kind of story. had to make a journey so many. but then you have. people. to ship and then there are a lot of people who are fleeing libya who are businessmen and traders business
2:11 pm
women working as all bears and maids in libya and then things got out of hand people are being kidnapped raped held hostage. over and over and over we had people on board during the last rescue who had been kidnapped over five times in libya they've given everything they had and they were just willing to get out no matter what they said it will if we die it's better than staying in libya it's a call for european countries to take responsibility and to take ownership the e.u. is one union and the have signed agreements to help each other and it does seem like italy's love to handle this by themselves now and italy is crying for help. new german legislation branding both fake news and online terrorist propaganda as criminal activity has been hits with a storm of criticism not least in the country's parliament the green party's warns that media firms may overregulate while the anti establishment alternative for germany party described it as a dark day for journalism

2:13 pm
for someone hate speech may be actually true for all vice versa you know how do you define what actually is a reality in every single newspaper or news network out of the sun has a slant of some kind or another part of the problem where you've got a government which is essentially trying to do that for the people who are saying well this is this we don't regard as new so we're going to get rid of that for you we're going to get rid of that and you need to watch this kind of news and i look at it through this kind of lens and that becomes quite dangerous is essentially censorship you can call it regulation you can call it whatever you want but the reality is essentially a ship because you are censoring a certain point of view or certain set of knew when i was a she just because you don't deem them as as fair or factually correct they stop listening is worried about the internet you know the internet is this one place where everybody everybody in the world can essentially have a voice they see that as as the centralized they see it as almost anarchic and for

2:17 pm
a few more people turning up as well if you go into the hotels everybody there let people speak english because the nature of this final i think if you're a host nation of course everybody wanted russia to be a need to do really well but of course looking at then some of the other teams coming through this is set up as you said to be a cracking final with two of the world's best teams and also just before hand when we were looking at all the numbers of fans who bought tickets assigned for russians watching the tournament chile and germany were among the fans who bought them ice tickets so lots of them there there are they've been anticipating good final mexico which for a moment i'm going in a long two trips over a month i haven't seen so much as anybody other than but their beautiful eyelids that made man woman and child racism hooliganism where receipt. well there isn't. he apparently and i've every read it across reports across the whole of the media across the world as well and nobody has reported anything i think is to the delight of fee for particular russia as well but johnny avanti now was full of praise because it wasn't just a question of as you mentioned hill egotism racism some of these other issues that
2:18 pm
have been long debated about particular issues in eastern europe but also the fact that the infrastructure wouldn't be finished but the fee for present itself is full of praise on a social level and an infrastructure level about the tournament so far we're hearing about violence about incidents. about. racism when we had nothing we had no incidents everything run smoothly everything run perfectly we're hearing about the infrastructure as well they are not ready and how will it work and all the infrastructure is are absolutely beautiful beautiful football stadiums transport works visa free entry will defend id free transport between the venues by train this is something that does not happen in many other countries were big events or organized well that city for many years particularly say i've been here since the time that the world cup bid was announced and where the host city would be and then about the confederations cup
2:19 pm
we've been hearing about the negatives about the potential for races and the potential of the infrastructure would be ready but it's all coming together and for once we cannot concentrate on the positives it's all about a cracking game of football between two of the world's best teams here at the magnificent stadium is to petersburg on sunday night thank you after saying you're very briefly the stadiums are ready the trouble is ready and often his took a lot of stick for us to say from all four cities been absolutely fantastic i would say that you know it's not like people are looking for problems and about you not hearing anything but mostly on telling absolute narrow wall hearing some pretty bird joined by some young four or five and they were showing off their fancy footwork and some of these kids on the cover. which does well and. that's just the making. of the ball put you through. because even though there's even. a strategic . experience. in st petersburg here that's what. the best football

2:22 pm
well the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley has compared it wrong to a scorpion and remarks about the country's nuclear disarmament. the topic of iranian regime's compliance with its international obligations reminds me of the fable of the scorpion and the frog. the scorpion asked the frog for a ride across the river the frog quite rationally asks how do i know you won't sting me and the scorpion replies because it would kill both of us we'd both drown so the frog is convinced he lets the scorpion get on its back and starts across the river but sure enough midway through the scorpion stings him with his last breath the frog asks why and the scorpion replies because it's in my nature. the secretary general's report is filled with devastating evidence of the
2:23 pm
nature of the iranian regime one we're talking about international agreements and enforcement and one we're talking about the potential. of prosecuting through military means and the like. these little metaphorical parable references lose their quaintness this is serious business here so when it comes to international diplomacy but it comes with the possibility of sanctions when it comes to the possibility theoretically of war i would prefer lay off the metaphor in the parable and the simile and let's be very very clear and also never overreact always look for a peaceful peaceful interpretation and a peaceful outcome i hope well this is not the first time top american officials abuse this type of rhetoric when describing of a nation the former director of u.s. national intelligence james clapper has been fairly outspoken about russians and
