8:06 am
a big deal and it's certainly one of twelve billion dollars worth of deals that are on the table today in the twenty i think it is bilateral deals to be signed into countries so we've got cooperation on a friendship level they want it on a practical scientific and media level but also want to business level as well and in terms of deals well it's not just the chinese economy and the russian economy that have done very well here it's also the chinese president he's going to go away with a medal for promoting it's one of russia's highest medals for promoting friendship and happy ties between the two countries and let's face it there's been quite a few good moments happy moments between russia and china in the past meetings over the past few years is have a listen. you were a. good
8:07 am
chinese businessman who told me that ice cream is very much enjoyed here as i promised and i brought you a whole box of russian ice cream. well aside from all the jokes and the fun and also the business deals as well there's also the political issues that the two countries are discussing particularly south korea when you're looking at spot in the u.s. missile system there which is under some control or say from by size in china and russia but also particularly in light of recent developments there looking at north korea as well and on to the fact that pyongyang has claimed to have launched its first intercontinental ballistic missile well the russian defense ministry says
8:08 am
that it wasn't intercontinental it was a medium range missile it was no threat to russia and it fell in the sea of japan but that's still a cause for concern for both china and russia and something that they will be discussing ahead of the g twenty summit which is due to take place in hamburg in the next few days. were quite the overview skate paultry edge there in the center of moscow thanks. for news of north korea's latest missile test information has added to global tension and trouble tweeted his reaction to the test demanding china make a heavy move on pyongyang to end this nonsense several a list told us how american involvement over north korea has only inflamed the crisis. each time. responds more and more certain. and this is. all. because every single
8:09 am
odds are lost. on china are most at risk are your last question i think the united states goldman ter concern about north korea is not really concerned about security and the threat of attack as we know it with the united states's exercise so its use of force around the world leading ways that you probably in accordance with international more and by most people viewed as violations of international law even when the united states itself admitted that these countries had no possibility of launching attacks against united states i think it is more in the issue of political strategy. well the shooting pains that to russia comes at a time when china's relations with the u.s. are on shaky ground that's after beijing ordered military vessels to warn off american warships which according to china violated its territorial waters in the
8:10 am
south china sea on a broader perspective our teams can have more pain has been looking and where things have been going wrong between beijing and washington. remember the famous chocolate cake that donald trump used to woo the chinese leader we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen president she was enjoying it that was the first time that trump and she met with trump putting on a gland a dinner for she which also featured trump's granddaughter singing a song for she and chinese oh. well that was back in april sense then trump's charm offensive seems to a falter here's how the chinese foreign minister. president xi explicitly pointed out that china u.s. relations have made great progress in the recent days but it has also been affected by some of your factors a fair few such factors actually unlike the us accusing china of being a top human trafficking offender child who was downgraded to two or three status in
8:11 am
this year's report part because it has not taken serious steps to end its own complicity in trafficking and washington's plan to sell one point four billion dollars in arms to taiwan which china regards as a breakaway province didn't exactly go down well either time isn't alienable coats of china and the us weapons sales to taiwan violates international law as well as the basic forms of international relations china firmly opposes and something it's another thing that china firmly opposes is the insulation of american missiles right on its doorstep the deployment of the u.s. missile defense system in south korea does serious damage to the strategic security interests of all countries in the region including china and russia and disrupts the regional strategic balance well it looks like relations between beijing and washington won't be seeing any major reset but how big of a blow is that to china right now china's president xi is in moscow both china and
8:12 am
russia would like to. demonstrate a common interest. deteriorating relations with the united to space both understand that donal's from administration. a serious fan of uncertainty and daydreaming very cautious demonstration. in china and russia is seen to be beneficial on the both the this despite trump's attempt to be best buddies with she a while ago it looks like the geo political set up hasn't really changed just like under obama the two eurasian superpowers seem to be getting along. pretty well while the united states is distancing itself and distrusting both of them. are to new york. breaking news this hour now it's. after the end as it's likely to set a border controls between the two countries r.t.
8:13 am
charlotte do joins me live now from paris with more details now charlotte what do we know about this new shift in the longstanding migrant crisis. well that's right austria's ambassador has been summonsed over the fact that vienna has said it could deploy up to seven hundred fifty troops to the border with italy they're ready to be deployed at any point and it has already deployed a number of armed personnel carrier to the border to the brain a pass which is a mountainous pass between italy and austria and that's because austria is concerned about the growing influx of migrants to italy which may then cross its border into austria so basically what they're trying to do is they're trying to say that they will sure up their own borders if there is a continued influx of people moving northward from italy now that's because in the last few years hoffer million migrants of landed on
8:14 am
a tally ensures many of them not wanting to stay in italy and if you look at the figures this year alone the u.n. migration agency says around one hundred thousand migrants have landed on european soil from the mediterranean sea since january of this year and the majority of those more than eighty four thousand have landed in italy alone now i was in the italian island of sicily over the last few days in the city of palermo looking at some of the issues that you will find the mounting michael in crisis what we saw on the streets there the fact that many of the mafia gangs have now teamed up with migrant gangs and they're actually. forcing migrants to work for them in criminal activities such as selling drugs we were told that migrants are being used to sell hard drugs like crack heroin and cocaine on the streets while young girls are being forced into prostitution and for many migrants it's the only way that they can
8:15 am
physically earn any money because without documentations they just cannot get jobs in italy and that is causing many problems on the island of sicily which is a very poor part of italy now france and switzerland have already started beefing up their borders because many of the migrants say they don't want to stay in italy they want to head further north many of the ones i spoke to said their destinations of choice were france germany even norway and we've seen over the past few weeks migrants being stopped particularly on the french italian border and being forced to go back into italy now italy has just said it feels abandoned it just cannot cope with this mounting crisis so much so that it has threatened to close the ports that vessels used to bring rescued migrants into from the mediterranean sea. of the on the boards of refugees.
8:16 am
something is not working. well france germany and italy have spoken about a move. effort and they've drawn up a code of conduct where vessels that are bringing rescued migrants could land and there has been the suggestion and talk about using ports in france such as ma se and in spain such as barcelona but there's been no concrete plans over this the e.u. has promised italy more money but speaking to the people on the island to sicily they just said that that's not enough the e.u. is made many promises in the past and countries like germany and france richard said that they will look to increase their allocation of migrants if they take it's just hot air because those countries haven't yet fulfilled the promises that they previously made and what people are saying now is this offer of money is too little too late what they're demanding is action to deal with this continuing crisis.
8:17 am
situation looks like it's worsening again that's our to do in paris thanks for the update charlotte. former italian foreign minister franco frattini spoke to us earlier and was scathing in his view of europe's involvement in solving the migrant crisis. it is unsustainable situation minister gentil own he's trying to promote european soli darity but unfortunately the reason these gregg a show of european union all round even the beatles are all bassy darity to each other you know unfortunately he's proving completely useless on helping the telly on solving the migraine crises today unfortunately due weakness of european institutions and national a leading to isolating. be the low mediterranean these is simply not acceptable we sole few days ago sound. old cray mailed people
8:18 am
put a bomb before hollows where some my grounds are osha to be located still some a.p.c. builds all of violent told iran's could be absolutely wrong but the response by dole's extremist group that in need saudi fighting against any kind a welcome the migrants any kind of. tease a very wrong response to a wrong solution for decades on migrations. frank with all stories.
8:19 am
called the feeling of three something. every in the world should experience freedom and you'll get it on the open road. the world according to josh. welcome to the world come along for the raw data. thank you again this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington washington media the media over voters elected the businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before.
8:20 am
welcome back to the program germany's interior minister says the country expects russia to interfere in september's general election artie's peter oliver is following the story and joins us live now peter what exactly did the german official have to say. while thomaston is here was speaking here in berlin at a press conference he said that r.c. sought russia or intended to try and influence the election here in germany on the twenty fourth of september he said that he expected information that was stolen during a hack on the bundestag back in twenty fifteen to come out into the public domain over the coming weeks back in twenty fifty when that hack took place well fingers were pointed russia as to who was to blame sutter longside him though was hans york
8:21 am
masson who's the head of germany's interior security services this similar type of body as the f.b.i. in the united states or c m i five in the u.k. he said that there was no evidence to suggest that russia was backing any particular candidate so why would they try and influence the election in the first place it does seem like an awful lot of effort to try and impact and influence upon another nation's elections if you have no particular outcome that you want to see there was no answers to those type of questions however musson is group. did put out a. report that said that russia was among the top three biggest cyber threats to germany but it all brings us back to what we saw in the united states and their general election also in france as well where things were pointed at russia saying that they tried to meddle late try to. to influence the election and
8:22 am
despite some very serious allegations regarding the us in france including some allegations made whilst under oath to still be absolutely no proof that any of this took part would still be in haven't seen any investigation that russia directly influenced it or only health any evidence that it took place whatsoever so be looking to see just how far german officials will road with this claim that we've heard from the interior minister thomas there is the way that he thinks russia intends to try and influence the german elections come september we're just going to tell him for those around the results peter oliver thanks very much for giving us an update on matter and we're going to cross live now to m.p. from the d. link party for more discussion on this now you filed a request for evidence didn't you. to russians intentions to meddle in the elections and where and you were told nothing existed so can you explain exactly what they said. well mid-summer questions to my government
8:23 am
last year and there was no real proof of these i think asians and then the arseholes or our own general is saying what we heard today was. a leech. or two of the democratic party. in the us last year. and saw expect that this will happen in germany but for me far i cannot see any new evidence any new proof. this is for me more trying to create. our own or her job. before the upcoming elections in september and it's interesting that you actually went and asked for proof and you were given the hard evidence that has been discussed time
8:24 am
and time again with other elections and other accusations now it was last december that you are asked for this proof just how likely do you think that more evidence has come to fruition and has a managed. no there is not to the evidence so say it's a reference to. the democratic. oh i'm doing. a reference to a leech and it was turned off abt twenty eight which is which include be only too rushed and also showed there is not true for the us and i think the german. intelligence service from your more cautious this out of the geisha is there is no proof. well today's report by german intelligence talking of the
8:25 am
names russia as one of three countries that pose the biggest threat to german cyber security has quite a statement there along with china and iran are you surprised considering some of the stuff that came out of wiki leaks that the us is not on the list as well when they emerged in twenty fifteen. twenty thousand they said that likely said that the us had been spying on german officials that decades. yes i'm not surprised because this is so narrow that we hear it said. last autumn in germany it's always mainly it's russia. sometimes mentioned. there is no mentioning zero or zero zero zero zero zero zero of for example the us or i mentioned it off the top years of all activities. so this is a moment for me is. i hope that the german public will
8:26 am

9:09 am
a marathon at the kremlin on the second and final day of shooting to moscow let's cross live now to our tease kate partridge who's been following this and you've got all the details haven't you kate what do the two leaders have to say. my bet there are that was certainly a flurry of information especially from a bloody may appears in talking about all the deals that we've seen them signing previously we heard earlier that it was going to be about twenty bilateral deals that they were going to sign with talk about twelve billion dollars worth of deals and they certainly gave us some information there i mean it's planes trains and automobiles they certainly said about contacts between russia and china in terms of aviation in terms of roads in terms of traveling all aspects also there were those key oil gas electricity deals we heard about the deal earlier between gazprom and the chinese petroleum corporation there was not only that as well there's also talk of tourism and cross pollination between the two. you countries in terms of students as well of having a joint university set up and also there was agriculture there was meat there was
9:10 am
poultry but there were very few aspects of trade that went discussed and president putin was telling us all about the details of how trade between the two countries had sort of fetch me rocketed over the past year from about four percent to thirty seven percent so this was a nailing down of all the deals that we've been we've been moved to talking about those and how we can progress between the two countries between russia and china going forward also there was the personal stuff in terms of what the was for the the chinese premier himself in the fact he'd been ordered he'd been given i should say the middle of the order of the apostles sometimes rainfall his cooperation in promoting friendship between russia and china and as we as we know there's always been a bit of friendship between china and russia over the past few years this was no exception but it's certainly not the last.
9:11 am
i've. just been chinese a businessman who told me that ice cream is very much enjoyed as i promised i brought you a whole box of russian icecream. and
9:12 am
it was no threat to russia but it's certainly something that has to be discussed between two countries and has been in terms of going forward for the g. twenty conference that's taking place in hamburg in a couple of days time and also they discussed the two premiers they said they've been discussing syria as well as iraq and iran so all details all aspects of business and promotion cross-pollination between the two countries and also international relations as part of the spirit of cooperation between russia and china as the next couple of days here kate is certainly look like
9:13 am
a very productive two days didn't it that's all teeth kate partridge they giving us an overview on the meetings between the two leaders. news of north korea's latest missile test has added to global tensions tweeted his reaction to the test the morning trying to make a heavy move on pyongyang to end this nonsense several analyst told us how american involvement over north korea has only inflamed the crisis. each time. we spawns more. and more certain. others. and this is. all noise. because every single hard south korea are those who are on china are most at risk are your last question i think the united states involved minter concern about north korea's not
9:14 am
really concerned about security and the threat of attack as we know it with the united states's exercise its use of force around the world in ways that are improbably in accordance with international law and by most people viewed as violations of international law even when the united states itself admitted that these countries had no possibility of launching attacks against united states i think it is more in issue of political strategy. heating ping's visit to russia comes at a time when china's relations with the u.s. are on shaky ground that's after beijing ordered miniature vessels and jet to warn off an american warship which according to china violated its territorial waters in the south china sea auntie's can have more pain looks at how things started to go wrong between beijing and washington. remember the famous chocolate cake that donald trump used to woo the chinese leader we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen president she was enjoying it that was the
9:15 am
first time that trump and she met with trump putting on a grand dinner for she which also featured trump's granddaughter singing a song for she in chinese. well that was back in april sense then trump's charm offensive seems to a faltering here's how the chinese foreign ministry sees it. president xi explicitly pointed out that china u.s. relations have made great progress in the recent days but they have also been affected by some negative factors a fair few such factors actually like the u.s. accusing china of being a top human trafficking offender child who was downgraded to tear three status in this year's report in part because it has not taken serious steps to end its own complicity in trafficking and washington's plan to sell one point four billion dollars in arms to taiwan which china regards as a breakaway province didn't exactly go down well either time isn't in alienable
9:16 am
parts of china and the us weapons sales to taiwan violates international laws as well as the basic phones of international relations china firmly opposes it. another thing that china firmly opposes is the installation of american missiles right on its doorstep the deployment of the u.s. missile defense system in south korea does serious damage to the strategic security interests of all countries in the region including china and russia and disrupts the regional strategic balance well it looks like relations between beijing and washington won't be seeing any major reset but how big of a blow is that to china right now china's president xi is in moscow both china and russia would like to. demonstrate a common interest you can be a. deteriorating. agents of the united states both understand that from administration. a serious fan of uncertainty.
9:17 am
very cautious demonstration. china and russia you seem to be beneficial on the part of both. despite trump's attempt to be best buddies was she a while ago looks like the geo political set up hasn't really changed just like under obama the two eurasian superpowers seem to be getting along pretty well while the united states is distancing itself and distrusting both of them. are seeing new york. and we have some breaking news this hour austrian ambassador has been summoned by italy a vienna is reported plans to deploy troops at the borders between the two countries it's all happening at. least influx all of migrants into italy. as more details. there has been summonsed over the fact that vienna has said it could deploy up to seven hundred fifty troops to the border with italy there ready
9:18 am
to be deployed at any point and it has already deployed a number of armed personnel carriers to the border to the brain a pass which is a mountainous pass between italy and austria and that's because austria is concerned about the growing influx of migrants to which may then cross its border into austria so basically what they're trying to do is they're trying to say that they will shore up their own borders if there is a continued influx of people moving northwards from italy now that's because in the last few years hoffer million migrants have landed on a tally and shores many of them not wanting to stay in italy and if you look at the figures this year alone the un migration agency says around one hundred thousand migrants have landed on european soil from the mediterranean sea since january of this year and the majority of those more than eighty four thousand have landed in italy alone now i was in the italian island of sicily over the last few days in the
9:19 am
city of palermo looking at some of the issues that have been caused by this mounting my current crisis and what we saw on the streets there the fact that many of the mafia gangs have now teamed up with migrant gangs and they're actually forcing migrants to work for them in criminal activities such as selling drugs now france and switzerland have already started beefing up their borders because many of the migrants say they don't want to stay in italy they want to head further north many of the ones i spoke to said bed destinations of choice for france germany even norway we've seen over the past few weeks migrants being stopped particularly on the french italian border and being forced to go back to italy and . italy has just said it feels abandoned it just cannot cope with this mounting crisis so much so that it has threatened to close the ports that vessels used to
9:20 am
bring the rescued migrants into from the mediterranean sea the only boards of refugees. something is not working well france germany and italy have spoken about a move cooed native effort and they've drawn up a code of conduct where vessels that are bringing rescued. can land and there has been the suggestion and talk about using ports in france such as mass a and in spain such as barcelona but there's been no concrete plans over there what started as a call for help by italy now looks like it could be turning into a diplomatic crisis as countries in the e.u. look to close their borders off with a e.u. counterpart leaving italy dwindling under the continued pressure of this migrant crisis in fact the un refugee agency has already expressed their concern over the issue according to it other countries should also share the responsibility for the
9:21 am
italian foreign minister franco frattini spoke to us earlier and was scathing in his view of europe's involvement in solving the migrant crisis. it is unsustainable situation prime minister genteel oh nice trying to promote european darity but unfortunately the reason these greg a show of european union all round even the beatles are bassy. to you unfortunately is proving completely useless on helping on solving the migron crises today unfortunately the weakness of european institutions and national. leading to isolating in them be the mediterranean these is simply not acceptable we soul few days ago. cray mailed people put a bomb before hollows where some my grounds are.
9:22 am
located still some a.p. still all of violent told iran's could be absolutely wrong but the response by dole's extremist group that in need of fighting against any kind a welcome the migrants any kind of. a very wrong response to a rome solution for decay zone migrations. after the break. played the lowly.
9:23 am
leg. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington or washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected to businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before.
9:24 am
back to the program jeremy the interior minister says the country expects freshened to interfere in september's general election peter on the how to tell interior minister thomas to marry as they were speaking at a press conference here in berlin where he said that in his opinion russia will try and influence the twenty seventeen general election here in germany he said that he expects data that was stolen during a computer on the bundestag back in twenty fifteen will be made public over the coming weeks now back in twenty fifty when that happened or fingers of blame were pointed out of russia however still no proof of an investigation was proved that it had to be a russia had any involvement in that subtle longside him at the same time was hans mohsen he's the head of germany's interior security services the bear file very similar in many ways to say m i five in the u.k. or the f.b.i.
9:25 am
in the united states he said that there wasn't any indication that russia would try to influence any particular or support any particular candidate or party which then clover or begs the question why would they do it in the first place it's a lot of effort to go into to influence and try and change the outcome of somebody's election if you have no particular care over who comes out on top is the winner in the end well the who owns your musson heads up also issued a report in which they list russia as one of the top three cyber security risks to germany but if we cast our minds back to you to february of this year just a few months ago the german security services issued a report in which they said there was no evidence that germany that the a bigger part there was no evidence that russia was attempting to undermine the government of angela merkel this will bring. back to what we've seen in the united
9:26 am
states previously in france as well where there are elections following their elections and even in the lead up there were claims that russia was trying to influence those votes well despite there being some serious allegations made and some of those allegations being made under oath there's been no investigation and no proof that anything actually took place so be keeping an eye and seeing what more comes out of the interior minister here in germany and to mr marson the head of internal security just to see what if they come up with any evidence for their claims that russia may be trying to influence the twenty seventeen german general election and an m.p. for the left party says such accusations and nothing but the german government paranoia. let some questions to my government. last year and there was no we'll prove all these. posts or aren't generally just the same what we heard today was.
9:27 am
under leach. cyber attack. on the democratic party in the us last year. and some of the expect. this will happen in germany but for me far i cannot see any new evidence any new proof so this is certainly. i hope that the german public will not call too much of this. portugal's president has admitted a military warehouse close to the capital lisbon has been raided officials haven't given a specific details although leaks have emerged claiming to state the amount of weaponry and issues that have gone missing the president called for an investigation adding it's not the first rate of its kind. we must really investigate all the facts
9:28 am
similar incidents have been reported in other nato countries over the past two years newspaper reports suggest more than one hundred fifty grenades were taken out of a huge range of equipment stored in the warehouse hundreds of bullets and units of plastic explosives were also taken the country's defense minister has warned that the weapons are likely to find their way on to the black market and they to report stated back in twenty eleven that if such a thing was to happen weapons and munitions would likely be used in terror plots. right we'll be back in a couple of minutes with morning. here's
9:29 am
what people have been saying about rejected in the us actually just full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch. is the john oliver of party americans do the same we are apparently better than the blue. sea people you've never heard of love back to the night my president of the world bank they. were. seriously sent us an e-mail. designed to kill people because it is doing its job just like the architects of the grand tower in london and the folks that put up the flammable cladding to kill people that's their culpability and that the people who have designed this health care are doing so to come people that's their culpability in the capitalist system
9:30 am
in america iterated by the current regime of kleptocrats thanks killing people is necessary to make ya payments in greenwich connecticut. politicians to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. some want to be rich. to going to be pros it's like them before three of them or ten people. i'm interested always in the water. or should.
9:31 am
welcome back to the program it seems everything president trump does these days is soon turned into a mean and explains despite some criticism this tactic may actually be a winner. donald trump hit back at criticisms that his tweets degrade the office of the president by posting an admission saying that his use of social media indeed isn't presidential but rather modern day presidential and well the critics out on whether that's a good thing or not it's undeniable the man understands the power of the internet trump inspires me and creates me trump uses mediums and his twitter post take the recent c.n.n. wrestling video he shared which was originally posted on reddit a popular viral news and discussion website. thank you that modern day presidential post caused an uproar in the traditional media president of the united states taking things way too far and
9:32 am
as an incitement to violence he is going to get somebody killed in the media is an attempt to might be successful to drum up violence against journalists it's kind of behavior to lead to a journalist to be hurt it's no wonder that sixty percent of americans say they have little to no trust in the media and many are turning to social media to get their information a trend that trump has cottoned onto and when the mainstream media makes his every tweet breaking news they're giving trump exactly what he wants i think you guys are getting played man i think every time he does this you guys overreact and i say you guys i mean the media in general you overreact and you play right into his hand whatever trump does they jump on it in a huge scrum he has used the media the social media is used. in twitter's been around for a while. everything they've got i don't like i'm. sure
9:33 am
it's use to me and they don't understand it and they right now are actually a very critical position in their life because american public has no faith in them which allowed for so it seems that's how trump when his war with traditional me to . through the magic of mean. are to you washington d.c. . there's just hours left for qatar to decide on whether to submit an ultimatum from a saudi led bloc that sanctioned the gulf state the deadline now expires at midnight on tuesday after it was extended by forty eight hours now let's take a closer look at the demands put forward by saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the emirates the bloc wants qatar to cut its ties with iran and militant groups named by the saudis and their allies as terrorists qatar has also been told to shut down a turkish military base on its territory the thirteen point list includes a demand for qatar to shut down all of its international news outlets including
9:34 am
al-jazeera and the saudi led bloc wants to hard to cease contacts with political opposition groups in their countries qatari officials have spoken out in defiance of the ultimatum this list of. demands made to be rejected it's not to be accepted or not made to be negotiated is not an easy country to be the one. we are ready we stand ready to go through. it all may be a small country but it's a significant regional power player the us has two military facilities near doha one of which is washington's largest base in the middle east turkey's first military base in the region is also in ca tall with two nations often holding joint drills across the gulf is iran which has the world's biggest natural gas field with qatar doha has been criticised by the saudi led law for its cooperation with terror on while we cannot discuss the crisis with tall based professor. and
9:35 am
retired navy commodore up to latif a little him thank you gentlemen for joining us here obviously this is. quite a difficult subject to talk about i'm going to start with you. quite a list there isn't there qatari officials of. the saudi led blogs ultimatum calling it really unrealistic what can we expect from doha all they can to fully reject this ultimatum are they going to adhere to some of it what do you think the outcome is going to be. well thank you again for having me i should say that in order to be fair to qatar i'm aware that we're both saudis on this show and my being in london i want to be able to portray a holistic view if you don't mind. and i do come at this as a international conflict resolution person. we are we should be
9:36 am
expecting we should look at this situation that it's beyond al jazeera or qatar for that matter i think the fight against radicalism doesn't stop at financing i think we've reached a stage that we need to accept that we have his name in specific is the problem in both countries both protagonists and that it has failed as an ideology for both countries and by that i mean saudi arabia and. qatar in terms of the demands themselves i think. it reminds us by our strong garia before the world war first war where they were given ten points serbia rejected nine out of the ten that's how the first world war began. they said qatar said it's been described as humiliating it's been also described as designed to fail so
9:37 am
i don't think it's realistic to expect that those demands are met but perhaps through the good offices of kuwait we can see a true and serious mediation effort well i'll bring you in mr him mr dahlan he said that those demands are unrealistic so why on earth did the saudi led bloc stipulate those. rules that qatar is expected to adhere to now by midnight on tuesday. the accusations against it are certainly very serious aren't they but they have all been rejected what's your view on this. frankly speaking to first of all over the body frankly speaking that we see they aren't realistic we have demanded many changes in the qatari policies first of all let me talk about qatar qatar is a country with the boat the thirty million people off which about three hundred four hundred thousand. i don't know clea the qatari people are the closest to the
9:38 am
saudis regarding the the wheel fly for social so even social behavior and many of the qataris are descended to full for a family of four families from saudi arabian tribes from saudi arabia there is a very very high respect for the for the qatari people and there are the saudi qatari relation had always been. on the high side even though there are many times since. i want to go by a very very far away but even even in one thousand nine hundred doing the invasion of kuwait there was very very important discussions among the gulf states to talk about the the iraqi invasion qatar or as usual wanted to. be very very critical does discussion to cut to the situations things continued and. sort of the the al-jazeera establishment and qatar which is reality is a state run. t.v.
9:39 am
station it was from first deal one was. like inciting violence and hatred among the states and things that each the peak in two thousand and fourteen and saudi arabia and other gulf states pulled out their ambassadors and the protest and they only we only sent back the ambassadors after qatar gave way and they decided that they yes they were lucky not. to get violence but things again came to a head to do it in the do it in the arab spring and from day one from about from the arab spring qatar was actually hand in hand with the muslim brotherhood and there was a public relation voice for the for the for the people who are actually wanted to. cover kind and the gulf states especially in and bahrain and kuwait so
9:40 am
again this is something continued and it continued from the time when attacks happened or so daily been two thousand and two thousand and three al jazeera became a truly v.v. public relation to speak out for the for these terrorists and qatar continue to host many many. of the of the dissidents from saudi arabia bahrain even kuwait just to to. make things you know in the in the in the in the gulf states during a very very difficult which is which is the which is the arab spring saudi arabia and the other got to stay didn't cut and we didn't blockade qatar i mean qatar was free to fly their employers to any other place other than these four countries but we are having just two to qatar that i think. relations with the others have to change especially at the top is that it could see a tremendous. nobody really did give me just two minutes
9:41 am
a tremendous amount. that they could use and even if so did any of you know we everybody and a whole lot of board to stood by it by cut out activity but it didn't point when the total was donated to host the twenty twenty two world cup which is very very big thing cut out should have known that from that date until twenty twenty two the whole world don't go to go watch you what the qataris are doing and we had expected the the qataris to change their behavior i don't know what does a cut is want even though we gave them literally we give you many chances to to critic to be. so if you allow it for a second because general would like to benefit from your understanding since there are so many wars right now regionally and certainly security and the military aspect is something that i can't speak about but it would be helpful to hear your views. i do think that the reason i say the demands are unrealistic is because it seems to me that there are real anxieties but the demands seemed
9:42 am
a little bit unrealistic and perhaps defining key demands would be helpful the only way this seems to me to be to be plausible is through a real discussion and having a proper mediation framework because even if we assume let's assume the worst case scenario like what was suggested by the defense minister in qatar if the if the assumption is the result would be through toppling their mirror of qatar then i think we've reached a very dangerous precedent because we're talking about toppling royal family members around the gulf that precedent was a red line for king abdullah at the time and i'm sure it is for prince for hamad bin said a man who is promising a long stable rule therefore let's reversely let's assume we want to resolve this. it and i know the qataris give their answer back to the kuwaitis yesterday with the before what is the way to resolve the dispute because
9:43 am
let's assume that qatar is in fact sponsoring terrorism or financing terrorism what is the mechanism to actually do this to me it seems that the natural way is to have a deep regional through the g.c. see process store over see financing to oversee and the involvement that's taking place to regulate to create the proper proper mechanisms to deal with this and i think the center for combating terrorism that kings among the issue it did was fantastic i think very grim in the g.c.c. had with president trump during his visit to riyadh is an excellent way to monitor financial activities i'm not saying that there are unfounded disputes against qatar but i think there is a new narrative about defining the region right now in the last thing we want is for the g.c.c. to fall apart well mr him mr dahlan he's come up with well let me just like i said
9:44 am
he's come up with a dialogue is saying you know why not create a dialogue instead of what appears to be very heavy handed methods from this side of the lead group that have also these. demands as it were and also you know i have to waltz the matches if we look at saudi arabia's foreign minister you've talked about having a high respect for the qatari people yet the saudi arabia's foreign minister says quote the measures adopted against guitar intended to change the policies as these policies harm tall and i suppose some an international perspective why is riyadh deciding what's best for could tall thoughts what is confusing to an international community. what right decided arabia how. does it. let me out something there are a confirmed recording by. officials regarding
9:45 am
actually. starting to like like kind of emotion like. association plots of so deal for shows and the cut that is until today they they didn't they didn't deny them and they. said according as of genuine well question is what is so difficult to have qatar. to change their their way of approaching issues in saudi arabia and you know the gulf states and why why did qatar i mean it's a little still critically i agree. god shutting it down would be a problem exactly now qatar no well exactly ok now how about how about inviting or i mean any in order to push through absent a cut up that's one thing second thing why doesn't qatar. change their goal go back to the to the to the general. constance's in the in the in the gulf
9:46 am
states cooperation council qatar is very very very active in the council and it is there are under two and written agreements which doesn't allow any of the of the media to attack you know each each other but qatar is continuing to. to actually have a public relations regarding it it got being terrorists organizations that are harming saudi arabia i mean directly i don't know why doesn't qatar have have a look at their internal issues and be part of a country like and be example of the twentieth century singapore of the twentieth century cuba or the twenty first. century not north korea could be done for a state believe me there is nothing between the qataris and the saudis as i see them again and again the qatari people of the closest in life to that to the saudis
9:47 am
and my hometown is only like maybe sixty or seventy miles from qatar and people from qatar come to my hometown a lot and people from whom my hometown and other saudi places go to to cut out of it is nothing between the two countries and i don't know why the way the qatari government or the qatari leadership insists on on on being in the enemies of the fall for the gulf states it's really really confusing i don't know what the depth of the demands of qatar. over the whole problem here and i'm very interested. yes i do think that focusing finally focusing the light on financing terrorism is a very important step forward i know it's an unfortunate crisis and i hear. the general talking about how the proximity and the people and the qatar and it's been very sad seeing them the pose that of the kingdom but i think. genuinely looking at financing terrorism and prince mohammed bin said man took this as
9:48 am
a serious mandate to eradicate terrorism and therefore i think. beginning steps i mean aside again from jazeera international relations what i understand is that there has been serious steps towards implementing some oversight over its central bank activities in qatar through us good offices court appointed individuals to help understand some of these activities including even perhaps. the having transparent terrorism tribunals i think that's a positive thing the issue is that perhaps the u.a.e. and saudi arabia probably started with that exercise earlier and we know that from the treasury secretary in the u.s. where. sort of being involved in some of those visits to the region they saw more of those activities whereas qatar perhaps didn't catch up as fast but certainly it reacted i know it's
9:49 am
a country that advocates the rule of law and i think taking these steps are going to be helpful and the long run and plus i think as long as everyone's able to use the same vocabulary to address these challenges it's important to work together because i mean it really across the gulf it's not i mean if we lose qatar who turkey and iran i think will end up with a bigger disaster we can't get rid of qatar in terms of the territorial integrity of their arabian peninsula. this is very late it is very valid point i don't want i don't want to cut thought to be involved with the any is. couldn't couldn't to presidency to be very frank. we do you want things to go back the way they used to be and qatar has a chance to deal. the what what the gulf states requested from from the more cut
9:50 am
the qataris and qatar doesn't need to have. got our dollar who is inciting violence all over the world to be to be in qatar they could they could tell them to actually . at least play down his tone i mean i know this is a government to government issue between saudi arabia and let us and bought in and egypt and one side and qatar on the other side but to be very frank quoted it for the for the normal a normal person not only in saudi arabia or the gulf but all of the all over the world terrorism has to be added to create it and the first thing to educate to listen is actually to stop the financial assets that are of it available to them and unfortunately it is very very clear qatar not only on an individual basis but only but on government bases are technically technically supporting you know tutors and this is something that is not acceptable not only by so david but but but by you know by by everybody and even for the for how much for example yeah qatar can
9:51 am
help the palestinian refugees and this but they don't need they don't need to have the how much to have how must leadership coming into qatar and staying you know being a jet set that at a time when the poor palestinian and does what any place in palestine facing facing it facing the lethal weapon of the of the israelis as this is very very controversial controversial you know qatar doesn't need all these things and it's very easy for them to actually be part of the of the old the gulf cooperation council i don't i don't mean the saudis are really puzzled and this is not something that you as a matter of fact it was a but i i'm i have a holding room. general called me old school a little bit but i think frankly the only way to do this in the tribal diplomacy fashion is to have a sit down and in my view instead of escalation in this sense of pride and humiliation i think maybe an invitation or something to shift to me more of the
9:52 am
foreign minister and just having to sit down instead of this public i think you know discussion where you know the u.s. government is involved and president trump is saying something in his secretary of state to say something else than ever exactly exactly. exile them into riyadh and just have this discussion and you know how it is we you know are saying in the region is that when you give me advice in front of the public you're condoning me so it seems to me that we can but exactly this is one or more people getting involved. go ahead mr alamo him i guess you guys you know this is what i have adult both of you you both obviously agreed in this fight against terrorism and you've both been very dim diplomatic but we can't ignore the fact that saudi itself has been accused of sponsoring terrorism so some may view again these extreme public demands of come from the saudi led group as being rather
9:53 am
hypocritical. so i think i think it is yours as you're trying not to mention of those who are going to go out. i mentioned there were happy aspect of this and i think this is something that we are finally confronting in the kingdom and i still think it's a problem with all of the doctrine of the issues and how it connects with isis and what have you but fundamentally saudi arabia has been the leader against since the nine eleven attacks and including the fifteen saudis who were involved they've curve down on all of these activities truth be said i think everyone made mistakes all we need to do is look at syria which is still a festering wound for all of us and as we know the u.s. russia everyone now has. pulled into that conflict but yes there has been a joint command. operation between qatar saudi the u.s. and others there's been money used and so on at least that's as far as the
9:54 am
intelligence reports suggest mistakes have been mean but that doesn't mean by that it is that as if that country just sort of it but that. said there is a difference between the individual you know was sponsoring terrorism and the government level less by the sort of that it is a bit of a saudi arabia as one of the few countries that titters them is punishable by a break up of the punishment we don't get it is a very very very very very likely and saudi arabia have. played a very very big part not only in saudi arabia but on the world to fight terrorism and be as one of the most successful country in and fight and yeah and fighting terrorism we did we did it is a very very very very very heavily and i could notice it was not annoying the gulf states sort of the out of the middle east that simply changing the lives of everybody out on the whole would look at look at airport security in every country
9:55 am
in the world even that autumn you know the latest american about about even taking it. aboard board an airplane so it is a myth. simply defeating and annoying everybody as saudi arabia is the number one country that is put to putting in effect fighting terrorism and. him and mr dahlan we could talk about this for hours couldn't we but thank you gentlemen for giving us your thoughts and actually being a little bit diplomatic at times as well thanks both that was a doll and principal of the qatar based think tank and retired saudi navy commodore abdul latif. i'll be back with world news headlines and more stories in a couple of minutes. welcome to max kaiser financial survival guide. two year.
