every year tuning in from right around the world this hour welcome to moscow and to our international union only our top story the russian president vladimir putin has given his impressions of donald trump following their meeting on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit on friday speaking to the press he praised the u.s. leader his approach to their talks. trump and i have established a relationship it may sound strange but trump in real life is completely different to when he's on t.v. he's very businesslike and easy to talk with i think if we continue to work together in the way we did yesterday he will be able to restore relations between the u.s. and russia and bring cooperation between our countries to
a new level. some interesting comments there let's get the whole story but with who's in hamburg for us either it seems that the first meeting between putin and trump was quite the positive one. you don't hi again to donald trump's you heard it right that's how the russian president said but a lot of our putin only met one donald trump and that blue room and as you remember according to all right still are saying there was some positive chemistry between these two men coming out of there were so much to talk about all these issues. just about everything got touched on to one degree or another and i think there was just such a level of engagement and exchange neither one of them wanted to stop cheryl times i had to remind the president people are sticking their heads in the door and i think even in the first lady at one point to see if she could get us out of there
and i didn't work either. so if that blogging man who spent more than two hours talking to the russian president was the real donald trump finally the rest potential for the lot of weighted political thought says a lot of our putin a lot of people waiting just to see what came out of this meeting did give any more details only about what was this two hour twenty minute meet. unit of course we know that they spent a while talking about syria and this resulted in that breakthrough ceased. our announcement in the three regions of syria but during the press conference a lot of our putin said some more like the details he called it a giant step but that was something that was negotiated not only by the u.s. and russia but also jordan and israel of course there were many many other issues that have been discussed we heard that from both sides but it seems that the only
thing u.s. journalists were interested in or maybe one of the only things the most important thing was whether donald trump was going to put pressure on lot of our putin over allegations of. all the geishas of russian meddling in the u.s. presidential race now it turned out that mr trump brought it up several times a lot of improvement kept responding that russia was not involved and at one point one of the journalists asked about whether russia was planning to interfere in the german election and also made a joke whether vladimir putin has already informed merkel about this plot a more potent had a laugh and here's what he was spotted to that just a few truthful new approaches you ask very provocative questions we've seen and you've already answered this is this is that we didn't interfere in the u.s. elections so why do we need to interfere in the juvenile elections because we have
a long history of friendship with germany its own largest trading partner in europe but we have many joint projects and so why would we insist in the internal affairs committee has to do with that what i mean by that while we are also waiting for a press conference by joggled from but apparently that got canceled it is a big disappointment because we heard inside into the first ever talks between mr trump and mr putin by from the russian president himself and also the top diplomats of the u.s. in washoe well maybe we'll just have to go. still donald trump says something else besides the word tremendous that we heard on saturday morning now the big question is whether the two leaders move closer to arranging an official meeting maybe the official visits from both sides and perhaps we might hear about that in the next weeks or months thanks very much for bringing us right up to date of the g.
twenty in burke. meeting has been capturing the imaginations of many on social media some drew part between their talks and scenes from the political t.v. series high some cards the russian president appeared to strike a facial expression similar to the fictional kremlin boss better off body language expert darren stanton broke down for us want all the gesturing means. but there was an interesting interaction between president putin and trump. around the table and again they shake hands but this time we noticed president trump sort of pats president putin on the under the arm which was quite mild gesture but again his appraisal is a power gesture to say that you know we're here but i'm still the powerful man you know i'm still the head on chair so to speak so i think you know although i think the two men have got mutual respect for each other. you know i think this this little call leakage these leakage gestures that i see between the two men
especially from president trump that he still wants to be seen as very much the you know the top man and also a source of footage where the both of us he sat side by side. president trump has got this what we call reverse steeple gesture with the hands and that's again confidence and dominance and then we also see president putin with his with legs sort of quite spread apart and again my is a very classic dominants gesture. apart from the experts there we showed footage from the g twenty summit to people from a number of different countries they made of the world leaders. try to find a way to go over something so hopefully they try to find a resolution building bridges exactly how to make it fun to try to they were probably still trying to figure out how we go what we're talking about ukraine and
the need to sort or possibly stop please stop oh maybe north korea. and they talk about the rocket launch pad and maybe talk about cereal this morning . oh so you put the conflicts no no they did that and it. is now saying this is it cuts off a red line. what could that be in relation to could be europe could be. a tasteful see. what you think these three a talking about discussing the menu where they going on holiday. they're probably advising him on what to say and . i'm pretty sure he's going to barrus us we'll help you get those refugees just take those refugees out of paris don't worry that's all you've got to do to put him somewhere else and get him out of the country he has to say mujhe it's you could be here it's going to be very. probably would've or. you want
a bridge i'll give you a bridge this is the best bridge know what i could sell bridges to the bridge makers of everywhere this is the so good so good don't want about her she says jim and that's all right it's going to be like a new super super awesome awesome. news because she also looks like he's class and quiet but with. a pretty good imitation is there with her. meanwhile world leaders who are trying hard to impress their counterparts on the host. police. are. currently. live.
live. live. live. live. well to talk more on what's come out of the summit political commentator john vause this joins us live on the program good to see you again john. do you think that following the meeting between a lot of input and dollars from russia in the u.s. are going to be able to improve relations or ultimately do they have different agendas that's always going to cause problems for relations what's your take. well first of all they've already started to improve relations in a major way trump came away from that meeting calling it a tremendous meeting and one could see with the without even hearing the words from
president putin that he was also very pleased naturally the two sides will have maintained their own independent interests but what i can say we are almost certain to see very soon is an identification of common interests anywhere there is a common interest between russia and the united states we're going to see action both of these men are men of action and they are going to be acting together and if they act together you're going to see really quick results like an instantaneous cease fire in syria we'll get into that in just a moment but during the news conference given a couple of hours ago vladimir putin rejected all allegations all the election meddling why were journalists there are so intent on suggesting russia will interfere in the german election coming up in a in a couple of months time do you think. well i mean the journalists who were so insistent upon this possibility were mainly american
journalists and the american journalists of course also cover american activities and they know full well that the united states has been interfering in almost every other country's election in the world since one thousand nine hundred five through the national democratic institute which is the democratic party's international political action group and through the international republican institute which is the republican party's international political lobby group and through the national endowment for democracy which is the combined tweedle dee and tweedle dum intervention political organization so since they've grown up in the united states and they know that the united states has been meddling in a minimum of one hundred fifty countries elections i guess they would consider negligent on the part of russia to try not to do something similar in other countries just as you're speaking about do you think that the cease fire deal which
should we believe to. go into effect tomorrow sunday is going to have a significant impact on the conflict we heard a lot of or putin said that it was a breakthrough really do we see such direct language from the russian president. well you know these fires have a tendency of not holding immediately so i don't think we can be certain that all parties because there are some rogue actors who who were receiving western financing and western weapons and who have gone rogue so i don't know if they can be controlled on the ground immediately however if there is sufficient will on the part of the superpowers there is no doubt that peace can be brought to not just syria but the surrounding region as well but it will come to her john balls and it's always great to get your take on the big issues of the day thank you john. the news continues here in our to international ninety-second stay with us.
in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporation preparations washington the washington post media the media the voters elected to run this country business equals power. bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. sixteen. and one of the six moment was president tom. what about you know what.
sixty minutes into the program welcome back a second consecutive night of violent on t g twenty protests those calls chaos in the german city of hama broke radical left wing militants from across europe vandalized their looted shops on clash with police the rest over the past few days reportedly left at least two hundred officers injured well some local business owners fearing further riots helping taking steps to protect their premises boarded up windows with the g twenty summit approaching its end many say the city looks like a war zone. as
far as i can tell and i'm from. the german justice minister has warned that such behavior will not be tolerated. every peaceful protest is welcome but that's no free pass for unrestrained rampaging these extremist criminals don't belong in the streets but in court whoever tortures cars and injures police officers does not deserve any kind of tolerance. artie's europe correspondent peter all over has been following the riots in hamburg for us it took quite
a few people here by surprise just how big the demonstrations and the violence got on there friday evening into saturday those pictures that you've just been seeing of what was going on overnight this is exactly where it was happening you can see just over here the advertising hoardings have been vandalized there behind me is a bank that was all it was locked up but it's now also been all smashed up over my right shoulder there the cash machines had been vandalized earlier on the guy was was taping them up to make sure that they they couldn't be destroyed any further and graffiti of course just outside this is a scene that we've seen across the street here and also a round different bits of the town as well but i spoke to some of the shop owners that are based here about what their plans were some were saying they were going to board them up saying they were going to wait it out and stay inside the store twenty four hours a day some owners were covering windows so they don't get broken a lot of places are closed so we couldn't work productively because a total collapse of transportation you can't come in you can't get out of town. and
our freedoms in my opinion you can't organize the g. twenty two in a lift with liberal area especially in hamburg which is famous for its demonstrators my opinion is that this is a completely wrong place to do this that is one of the questions that is going to be asked in the aftermath of this g. twenty why put it in hamburg it is one of the major centers for counter culture in germany one of the major centers indeed for the far left here just over my left shoulder is a place called they are off the floor it's a major hub for left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot of the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being where violence took place on friday evening into saturday now i spoke to some of those who were taking part in a more peaceful demonstration on saturday and i asked them what they made of the violent scenes that we saw on friday. feeling very very badly because we're living right next door to this contact with a chance in fact and really hate it so that's
a point because. i decided today to go to this demonstration to set a point does it give. us this the violence yesterday evening was all full. understand the message they want to send is violence is simply tragic. when i don't absolutely involve clear from the very beginning which the police did nothing the officers gathered in small groups generally you could say it was incompetent. or we heard about the actions of the police officers there with some people saying they wanted to see. however when offices did spring into action it was very forceful indeed resource some scenes of where bottles of being thrown at them police moving in with well they were messing about in the slightest they moved in in full riot gear buttons drawn shields out pepper spray at the ready. to count and we understand some two hundred people were detained. and many more people injured
there. we were expecting this of course there was a hundred thousand people set to descend here on how all these demonstrations with the authorities expecting around eight thousand from extremist groups and they're not just coming from here in germany from all over europe people coming here how is the second biggest city in germany very easily reachable from most of northern europe most of southern europe as well pretty much all of europe a very big help a. person who fell foul of the demonstrators was the u.s. first lady melania trump she had to cancel some of a range of vents that was due to security concerns she was unable to take the river cruise or to attend a climate change meeting now potentially considering her husband's views on climate change would have been something that been well anticipated by the organizers. security saying that jus to the situation on the ground here. on friday those events were canceled we are expecting more to build up throughout saturday and
we'll probably expect to see similar scenes if not exactly the same scenes as we saw on friday evening later on saturday and of course i'll be keeping an eye on the bringing you all of the latest here on r.t. . a surge in migrants trying to get into europe in recent months has led the e.u.'s migration commissioner to admit the situation is getting worse and despite years searching for a solution the use very limited results. he has said to his house and i think you know our that is that and now rice has gotten out that i have just paid me. almost twenty percent between t.c.f. meant because of that trade and it will yet also tell you.
who's to go through a shilling a smuggling. we need to pull it from the international level to break the smuggling business model. putting more people in the boat still sending out all boats those monsoon january february tend to be very slow and instead we had incidents almost every day in boats that were taking more people than they really should be allowed to take this very big boat. journey is more dangerous don't question be. the percentage of survival drops that is good that will end for you and it has to travel things to cows that if you believe that. there is no in many areas
between these get mission to rescue people and so that i have shares that i will share the rescue has been sent down to my own work and i'm and then i'm going to ration it and the reason it's not sustainable. it's the boat sensors are deliberately turned off by n.g.o.s in order to obscure the location did not does not arouse confidence this x.x.l. . imagine that. you have yet to provide a child the book black berry. what is happening in front of you need to leave is an unfolding tragedy. but here's a snapshot of the current problem it please already seen at least eighty five migrants reach its shores so far this year it's pleading with fellow e.u.
nations to share the burden but that's being largely ignored in france a makeshift camp in paris was cleared on friday with the migrants sent to gyms and sports enters to the north in cali the former site of course of the notorious jungle camp the city has seen budget hotels fill rooms with refugees and in greece which has also taken on a huge share of migrants locals on the island of kiosks are furious that their hotels are having to be used as emergency housing where we get the thoughts of a european political analyst and a member of the european parliament about the migrant crisis although they view the situation differently both say the european union is failing to address the problem . the program the lack of humanities the lack of gold the lack of the fall out with the ideas of the european union. is not because the people of europe are exasperated because i don't think the
people of europe mind having migrants and it's a tradition in many of european countries to greet the political refugees the problem is that these are not political refugees these are for most of them economical refugees. but i've got these men because because you know the agreements between the members of the group of european union for the relocation of the refugees to put every state member to accept some of them by the. fusion completely to accept even one refugee this is the the problem is a lack of charity that is the responsibility is in all the wars that nato and western countries have waged in foreign countries where are these migrants coming from they're coming from coming from afghanistan the coming from iraq they're coming from syria they're coming from libya these are all the countries where the us and nato said they were going to bring democracy so you bring democracy and twenty years later you get the microscope in droves. thirty minutes of saturday saw
tire on the way with a leak killed on the rig doug did tonight to stay with this if you can. boss alone the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live there or is it. crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life in them and hopefully before this on the semester get on them all such as the traditional story son us comes by you sometime see that as we don't spend money into a school but there's a time that the wireless cities tried desperately not to collapse all powerful corporations collect the profit of vision totally cool we'll put this up it will probably go up on the dole coffee cup of dolly economy in the bushes up the on some
snark up the supposed to mean a good to. find balance. but. as a tourist phobia wolf if i don't own identity. i think the u.s. russia relationship is very important and has suffered and we need to make it better there's no question about it we need to cooperate on so many issues on nuclear weapons from syria on iran on energy on trade. routes them through. our rights we are being a lie. to about syria we are being lied to by the president we are being lied to by
the mainstream media this is my surprised face. last week famed people it's a prize winning journalist seymour hersh revealed that the motivations and facts given by trump for bombing syria were about as truthful as a bill cosby testimony. and less than testimony for jell-o. put in which i still believe he legitimately lives. i want other to sully the name of genoa. you remember trunks justification for bombing was the use of chemical weapons by assad but hearst revealed that the syrian military did not use chemical weapons that the us military knew what assad's military was doing at the time and that the bombing was meant to hit a high level meeting of jihad as leaders and did just that hersh is source says it's this was not a chemical weapons strike that's a fairy tale military grade serin is odorless and invisible.
