balticon and violent clashes erupt in how member days before world leaders arrive in the german city for the g. twenty summit. hello and thank you for joining us this hour i'm neki arun and this is r.t. international our top story this hour london has summoned north korea's ambassador to the u.k. for an explanation after pyongyang's latest missile test meanwhile the u.s. military officials are sounding the alarm over the long range missile calling it a new type that they've never seen before well arty's caleb moore pin joins us from new york with more details on this latest development caleb thanks for joining us now what exactly has got the pentagon so worried about this latest missile test from north korea. well it's being called a game changer it appears that the democratic people's republic of korea has
launched an intercontinental ballistic missile or an i.c.b.m. that is actually capable of hitting the mainland of the united states now this took the americans completely by surprise it was in a new site that they did not know about they had not been aware of it's a new type of missile they did not expect to be used and this appears to be the first time that the d.p. r. k. has launched an intercontinental ballistic missile. this comes just hours ahead of an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council which is on north korea how is that expected to go. well we've already seen donald trump on twitter talking quite angrily about china he tweeted so much for working with china we had to try lashing out at china alleging that they are economically cooperating with north korea furthermore we have this u.n. security council meeting coming up just shortly here in manhattan at the new york
city the headquarters of the united nations at the u.n. headquarters and the meeting is called by south korea the united states and japan now we've had russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov say that these events should not be used as a pretext for regime change saying that that could have unpredictable consequences in the region which borders the russian federation and the people's republic of china now the events are also supposed to overshadow where they're expecting that the launch will overshadow the upcoming meeting on friday of the g. twenty now this meeting is supposed to be the site of the second meeting between donald trump and china's president xi as well as the first face to face meeting between donald trump and russian players wouldn't let him near putin so the events certainly are causing tension in the world the question is what will happen next all eyes are on the u.n. security council and indeed. the update. now we talk to several analysts about how u.s.
involvement has influenced the north korean crisis. more. and more certain. and this is why. i think what the u.s. and south korea are doing is basically flexing their muscles to show we're not afraid of north korea we also have been bad weapons but what they're doing is is is answering fire with fire in a region that is a powder keg slightest miscalculation on the korean peninsula can trigger a conflict that basically meyer's the entire region and therefore track a war that could have catastrophic consequences not only for the region but also for the global economy and that is not in anyone's interest. no accusations of
blackmail or being leveled at c.n.n. after it tracks down the person behind the donald trump wrestling clip which the president tweeted just a few days ago well the channels are threatening to reveal his identity if he makes another video like that trump one and here's the clip at the center of the control of a c it's an edited video of transcript appearance that a wrestling match was way back in two thousand and seven a person who is attacked has a c.n.n. logo for head the channel has since accused the president of encouraging violence against reporters and he's more against if. so this guy makes a humorous little video and then it blows up someone edited it donald trump found it and posted it on his twitter feed it got millions of views hundreds of thousands of likes and many people had to love c.n.n. did not like being laughed at not one bit they launched a manhunt for the original creator of the video what they did is dog saying it is
digging up private information on someone or something and then publishing it could be used for law enforcement for business extortion coercion harassment online shaming and vigilante justice the reaction has been furious even julian songes waited on the matter saying that potentially what c.n.n. did may be a crime. the multi billion dollar t.v. network blackmailing a private citizen into not making funny videos about it is not journalism c.n.n. and c.n.n. succeeded they found the original creator and he has since apologized and promised never to make another video critical of c.n.n. channel says when they finally talk to him he sounded nervous as well he might c.n.n. is threatening to publish his identity for all the loonies in the world to know if
he ever stops being sorry it's right there on their website c.n.n. reserves the right to publish his identity if he stops being sorry if anything changes isn't that the deficient of blackmail the internet has reacted with fewer one user on reddit is saying that holding private information under the condition of his continued contrition is an ambiguous sleep bullying of a private citizen by a major conglomerate if not blackmail look the truth of matter is when you are in a hole you stop digging is english phrase the truth about we see that you sort of get rid of those producers when really the problem of fake uses it to make within the organization and now you see them bullying and threatening private twitter users as i say pandora's box is open the c.n.n.
executives can't stop this now what they've got stu is reform and change and start telling the truth they're not going to do that anytime soon so twitter is not going to stop doing what it does at the time so. well the author of cnn's article about the implicated reddit user has responded to the allegations of blackmail in a tweet he says the line about revealing the person's identity has been misinterpreted and simply means there was no agreement on that issue or my colleague to do or to discuss the scandal with freddie gray the deputy editor of britain's spectator magazine. now the russian defense ministry says it's taken out a number of ice all positions in syria that's amid ongoing syrian peace talks in the capital astern or has artie's remind kozyrev. two hundred ninety five
strategic bombers dropped brang strategic cruise missiles on the border of hama and holmes provinces in syria and they fired those strikes at a distance all one thousand kilometers destroying three weapons and ammunition stockpiles as well as one command center now those high precision missiles are capable of being fired from a range of forty five hundred kilometers and according to russia's objective control they did their job very effectively now this is all happening on the back all of. these talks was just concluded in the capital of kazakhstan where a russian envoy ambassador suggested that said security areas in deescalation zones should be created now that decision is yet to be made to bud so the russian envoy suggested that a peacekeeping force should be stationed there as well however those should be
lightly armed just for self-defense now you and syria and voice stefan's in mistura says that while there was a progress the salts and. decision could be in place but is still with will be just a. solution let's have a listen to what he said but we all know everybody agrees. the difficulties show. of. arrangement what they need in order to progress on the political side. the progress which was reached at the latest session and. carried in geneva talks which are set to begin on monday. starting with syria now the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons has wrapped up another session on the use of chemical weapons in syria we can now speak with russia's representative to the. joins us live from the hague
with thank you very much for joining us on the program i know you're very busy can you tell us what's been achieved what's come out of the latest meeting. and the extraordinary of all the executive. the. wisdom group. is that. to make some. called. prism. in the country. the full. point the fact that going to. be. in the chemical which due. to.
the united states. there is that the. report will be proclaimed in the quote is the one hundred percent truth. the syrian government. this thaw is we don't come so we. have given all explain nation supported by reasonable arguments on why we cannot concede all these reports of such destruction despite all the repeated calls the main problem was the why didn't we. has not of these the five from she who lives at police all the news each of chemical weapons all shot out yeah base from where it wouldn't go along their
compartments the syrian planes you know to carry out and use off my chemical and talk. while. they have full their i mean. it's all the guts in the text of the fault. so we point to talk to some of them. the experts at me to the didn't implemented in tied in a chain of custody the basic procedure is done it is by the organisation to convict samples to ensure of the custody. in up of warts we don't know exactly where the border is going to go where the evidence is could have been collected who. got these and will that second point very
important point the team was unable to be started it was actually at the top don't even know. what kind of what. where that it was the. all explore what was the kind of explosion the aerial on the ground so absolutely not. sorry to interrupt certainly this week the syrian government accused the us of refusing to send international experts to investigate this find the link to that chemical attack back in april now the i.p.c. w w is officially an independent organization if not into washington all of the un so what's to stop this great from sending its own experts to syria to investigate that aside. you know. the terms of the. mission will.
be all the places we. are connected with the use of that will be chemical weapons. to a. specific provision. of we. are looking forward with the draft. drove the decision in order to sound the team of experts not only in country form but to show us the united states and allies i'm not so in the oval office to have these decisions. nor to sound. shit out. and i don't know which seal bit it was the wrong decision because of on june twenty six zero zero zero american promise. well informed and.
made statements in the so called into the intentions of the so. in that. some going to predict the relations on the syrian side that to launch the new it took in these who could not go yeah being jewish that to these experts the american populace were against and no these are the rules just come through them but they are going to combust of them yeah do you think it reported don't use the sin if you know it's true interested in these if these elites take the d.c. from the right no with no will to any of the elite and syrians will give old to get them to use them so all the experts will be will come to this shit they about. ok mr so good thank you so much for your time on afraid that's all we do have time for at this point in time thank you for joining us from the hague that
was russia's permanent representative to the i.p.c. alex on the show getting. i can recall moni is coming your way right after the short break. what else still seems wrong. what i'll just tell all. be all you have to say proud just come out of. it j h but it was betrayed. when something you find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground .
welcome back now with just two days to go before the g. twenty summit begins in hamburg it seems world leaders i'm going to get the warmest of welcomes the host cities being and gulf to end protests. police dispersing the crowd were fully paid down in riot gear pepper spray and more secant and were also used against the anti capitalist activists offices have
cleared a camp which protesters set up in one of the city's parks several everest's one made peace all of a has been closely following the story. police everybody has been prepared for a large scale demonstrations and almost certainly violence over the coming days as protesters are right for the g. twenty but this one really caught a lot of people by surprise and it seems to have come about through the sheer number of people that have turned up to protest against this g. twenty they were camping in every book park in hamburg police's decided that there was no way that was going to happen this tent city that was being set up there was dispersed by the police with some of the demonstrators arrested they fought back pepper spray was used police in full riot gear. from the pictures we've seen going in there as well and some quite ugly scenes very early on we've been told to expect serious demonstrations out these g. twenty this g. twenty summits we've seen fly is all around the capital here in berlin also around
other cities and other e.u. nations i've seen saying come to humbug on these dates be part of these demonstrations the. result. of. the. fact there's been also a lot of criticism over the decision to actually place this g twenty in how the police operation though is what's being called the biggest in recent german history they have had some successes if you will call them that going into this but it also gives us a key is just how prepared and interesting look into just how prepared the demonstrators are police have been showing off a haul of weapons that they've confiscated in the city of rostock that was supposed
to be part of a cache that was going to be taken to hamburg they believe and used in the potential riots there it includes things like throwing knives baseball bats brass knuckles telescopic batons as well as precision catapults now those are weapons that police have said could cause well really catastrophic injuries there very serious weapons in the right hands we're going to be following all the way through here to try and see what happens i say we are expecting violence we weren't expecting it so soon it does seem though that the protests against this g twenty four eclipse the political and diplomatic decisions that may be made during the summit. let's now discuss this that. with peace activists down head of no to nato rein approval and mr braun thank you for joining us on r.t. international maybe you would be the best person to town is why are people so angry about the g. twenty meeting. you know the g twenty is an
illegitimate organisation which one to the side about the future of the world it's in their liberalistic decision about bed arms trade destroying the agriculture militarism and war and destroying the environment you know they're already part of the sieve you know due to the area. of the world out attending these meeting then a lot of big crowd over here which is for democracy and for free speech high joining these are made to protest against it and that is the reason so many people are coming here i am sure you can see around the big crowd which is tightening the judges on that maybe there will be much more of the big demonstration that sort of . security has been stepped up in light of past of god we've got riot police the water cannons and tear gas do you really think protesters will actually succeed in
disrupting the g twenty summit. you know the protests death to do continue and more and more people are joining our protest even many people in the city which were not very much in favor of the protests in the beginning got totally unhappy with the undemocratic behavior of the politician and the government of hamburg ridges and in none except a violent kind of odd organizing actions against the protesters so we will be more in the next days we'll be protesting day to day evening and evening and we will finalize the protests with the huge money for station on time of day it's a question if we can keep them on. to see in our country if we get a fight for the right of protest against the violence of the government the behavior of the police and the government including the national government and
america is totally unacceptable it is a gauge german constitution b.j. loud to protest everywhere which is which has its own paragraph or the right of demonstrations not happened here is against our constitution. what about the g twenty summit itself what do you think it will actually achieve this time around. you know what can you achieve when you are sitting together with trump an adult you can achieve nothing positive for the people people need fair trade but the relation to the u.s. and the european union makes trade only for profit for themselves people the better agricultural systems but we are doing the land grabbing people need fear cannot make relations between the country but we are export against giving resources from other countries so that we can't expect anything will be something and when you look into climate what you want to expect when trump is
a round the table he was he tried to destroy the climate agreement from paris he's leaving disagreement so what we need is a way back to the united nations the only the national organization which heads legit to meet legitimation for international agreements mr raynor prone peace activist had no tonight sorry thank you for your time sir. well the g twenty summit is making headlines for another reason to the highly anticipated first me saying between donald trump and flatmate putin it comes with speculation still rife ledge links between team trump and the kremlin less across life to auntie's just in visit to find out more about they struck link it to see. now what should we expect from this much anticipated meeting. well something very interesting to note is friday's meeting which of course has been receiving a lot of attention and hype in the media will actually be the first official
bilateral meeting between a u.s. and russian president in nearly two years of course the first six months of terms presidency have seen prevailing anti russian sentiment in the u.s. limiting the two world leaders interactions to a few phone calls and while no specific agenda has been announced for friday's meeting it is expected that they will discuss important issues such as syria ukraine the fight against terrorism but the mainstream media on the other hand has been full of speculation as to whether or not allegations of russian meddling and the u.s. presidential election will be brought up by trump or if he'll touch on the never ending accusations of collusion between team trump and moscow they may however be disappointed on that front but there is no doubt that every aspect down to body language excuse me will be analyzed as many are saying it will be an indicator of the future of u.s. russia relations so there is no doubt that the two presidents have much to discuss the only question that remains is how much they will be able to accomplish under
such strange circumstances. as much as talk to waken steve outthought he's ducking and thanks for that jacking up next the law take a look at one of the walls that most results rate countries stay tuned for that. every once in a while crosstalk has a look at the big picture of a story in this case it is the middle east one of the current defining trends who are the winners and losers and how is this volatile and very dangerous region changing and is american influence becoming.
