a worldwide. international a very warm welcome to. the first joint russia china drills in the european war today in the baltic sea the military exercise between the two countries will last for a week however even before it takes place the event is sparking a strong reaction. western media is in a spin over the joint the twenty seven thousand naval drills starting today between russia and china headlines have been lifted with words like invasion and war warning of a challenge to nato so what sparked the panic well first of all it's the location in the baltic sea right in the heart of northern europe and next to nato bases secondly chinese warships are making their debut tour in this part of the world and
if that wasn't threatening enough they're teaming up with russia but during sea drills are nothing new they've been held annually since twenty twelve but this first stage of the baltic coast has already caused a frenzy as a trio of chinese vessels made their way there leaving their british danish navies scrambling to shadow them out of their water is much to the amusement of the russian ambassador to china the baltic states repeat their usual incantations but at the same time they take for granted the fact that nato is deploying large forces on their territory but then wasn't this response predictable in october last year a russian fleet sailing around europe sparked headlines like the leading some to repin states to even consider sending vessels to intercept the group and this fear of a russian ship has been around for some time already you can just ask sweden
a country that spent twenty years insisting that russian submarines were sneaking around its coastline until they realized that the only thing lurking there minks now we can confirm that as of this moment no minks all scheduled to take part in joint c. twenty seven c. meanwhile the u.s. countries have just finished their own massive exercise in that region saber guardian took place in eastern europe on the territory of three countries still aimed at deterring so-called russian aggression some twenty five thousand personnel from more than twenty states participated in the biggest drill of kind in five years spoke to writer and political commentator john white. part of a known good propaganda campaign is being conducted in the western media to try and paint russia and china as the cane of evil empire recruit a sense of cold war and strums and to try and demonize both countries they are only abiding by their that their rate to seal international waters or do nothing wrong
nothing illegal but the western media has to say to try and inflame the situation is a see it's part of this ongoing cold war part of the game that we've seen through the last few years. a police officer in the u.s. state of baltimore has mistakenly called himself on camera staging a drug bust a video shot in january shows the officer planting drugs in the backyard of a house alongside two of his colleagues who were seen in the footage right there the officer then leaves the area to turn his body camera on both getting the units are set up to recall the last thirty seconds before manual activation then returns to the scene where the drugs were earlier buried it to quote discover them an internal investigation is now underway in the people arrested for the drugs possession have been released all baltimore state attorney defended the judicial system and her office saying they want aware of the videos existence and critics of
question why the officers would choose to fake a crime when the city's already struggling with law and order as it is. a depressingly in the city of baltimore. a record high murder rate. in full. baltimore there is a robust active crime strategy. this week we have two suspects that we need your help.
we also spoke to a former policeman who believes the real issue was with more than just individual police officers. well i don't think cops are the problem in baltimore there's a miscommunication among police officers in the community all over the united states of america i think one thing that needs to happen is that we as law
enforcement we ought to get out and really really work with the community there was an officer who planted some drugs in the community and dead since a negative signal not just to the police the whole says but the community as a whole it made sense although. as italy seeks help from the e.u. to cope with the daily influx of migrants austria's foreign minister has urged rome not to allow the newcomers to make it to the mainland he's declared even if they are plucked from the sea they shouldn't get quote a ticket to central europe that's not the marrow paletta most said the difference of some states in the block to the crisis actually equates to fascism there were all of it up which is south of europe will be on trial for genocide this will be a second nuremberg trial maybe not in the cool spot in the history books because of this ongoing genocide in the mediterranean and it's all because of the indifference
of certain states in the european union the e.u. has to recognise the freedom of movement as a human right this is very serious and i think the european union should can i say feel ashamed. italy has witnessed a record number of migrants arriving almost ninety thousand since january and more than two hundred twenty thousand are expected by years and local authorities are trying to find a solution that is ati's really for trying to reports from sicily and certainly proving to be a struggle migrants keep coming in for solutions not really the local mayors are desperate for help from the central government and the e.u. but they're not getting it so they decided to get together right there to see what they can do about it first fair new job growth peaceful and so of course they won't be anything like that. the migrant crisis was caused by wrong european policy. and i blame our government pull this persistently the
migrants primary destination after crossing the mediterranean and messina the ferry gateway to mainland italy the issue is super delegate and urgent and the meeting is happening behind closed doors. just. tell them not to come in and it's ok. thank you how many people are taken part in this meeting over five police officers and about forty good one officials of the forty mayors of local talent spent hours together with the local governor but these aren't the people who are talking to the big officials of the let's see what they have to say about that i was told at the meeting is going to be over soon it's. tough.
the migrants are victims of tragedies in their homelands but our communities paying the price too and we're not getting the necessary help. we've heard a lot of from the you but barely anything is being done we're all alone the mayors are facing growing pressure on the one hand after several protests they're here to save the day for their small communities on the other hand their best not to be labeled racists and the migrant issues very very urgent for regions it's all about the numbers the quota agreement of two point four of migrants per thousand citizens has been violated several times. here initially we're trying to divert the flow of migrants and spread them across communities we asked the e.u. to do the same but they're turning their backs on us haven't spoken to officials in this building you get the impression that they're ready to make compromises they're
ready to think several steps forward and they're ready to sort out the issues themselves when it comes to the long awaited assistance from the you in that obvious the they have completely lost their trust. around fifty muslim protesters are said to have been injured after clashes with police fled overnight in jerusalem three sustained serious injuries one requiring surgery during the clashes palestinians could be seen launching fireworks and police the protests erupted after israeli authorities began to install security cameras and metal detectors at the revere. following a deadly shooting there just last week. meantime a palestinian spiritual leaders demanding the new security measures all removed from the holy site also known as the temple mount a wall in the situation could get much worse if the demands are not met before friday prayers and we spoke to the archbishop of the jerusalem orthodox church who
says palestinian christians are in solidarity with muslims. took a look hellish to oppose the israeli government's measures which interfere with worship in some mosque the palestinian christians in jerusalem and throughout the holy land express their solidarity with muslims who have the right to demand the lifting of limitations on attending a mosque palestinian muslims and christians stand side by side hostile actions against affects the whole palestinian nation both muslims and christians we demand the metal detectors that are limiting muslims the right to access the mosque freely should be removed arab countries are taking a week of suspicious that some of them are not even talking about what's happening in jerusalem those who are financing terrorism in syria iraq libya and yemen aren't saying anything about truth they don't remember jerusalem they don't think about palestine and the palestinian problem that they are spending billions of dollars to
continue the wars that are causing destruction and is out international thanks for joining us so far u.s. president donald trump having second thoughts about his tunny general plan why for the. most people think just stand out in this is this you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest race in. stand this is just the right questions to the right answer. question. drug trafficking organizations are very sophisticated and they function very much like a corporation you know they have different components they have components that
engage in money laundering and you know that can only security forces that you're only not been more minutes. past the hour here in moscow donald trump says he would have never appointed his attorney general had he known that jeff sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the rush or investigation that's far from the change of heart by the u.s. president however trouble has never hidden the fact that he wants to be unpredictable i want to be unpredictable unpredictable i use the word unpredictable but i like to be unpredictable you want to be unpredictable and fun like to have
a country where we're totally predictable. find it increasingly difficult to follow the president stands. and hit the streets of new york to find out if americans really know where trump stands on the key issues that will trump is a man whose policy positions can be quite hard to pin down we decided to talk to americans and find out how well they know their commander in chief and where he stands says it was a good idea to pick jeff sessions i think what he said is. that if he knew jeff sessions would with never would it joe's and m. regrets. of his attorney general i think it's all about business so he's my. president donald trump has confidence in attorney general jeff sessions do you think he likes jeff sessions trust jeff sessions or or does. i think he uses jeff sessions. so that it's neutral it's all rational gratian
i don't think you regret it because he's still in office sessions should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and i would have picked somebody else donald trump thinks china is a good partner i think anybody has a good partner who will pad his pockets and pad the pockets of his spamtrap will partner with anyone at all in rich's coffers if we can't continue to allow china to rape our country and that's what they're doing isn't getting us to partner with china again i'm really not so sure he's thinking about china i don't think he wants to partner with them for say i do think he will be able to do anything even with china. to say. you know you. can have one relationship what's his position on cooperating with russia around issues of
cyber security i think he is the statement i remember reading of was that he wanted to create with russia some kind of overall cyber security by i think based on his relationship with russia maybe i do think he will want to partner with russia because that was his main thing when they came the elections. the fact that president putin and i discussed a cyber security unit doesn't mean i think it can happen it can't but a ceasefire can and did is going to partner with russia on cyber security no. hootin and i discussed forming an impenetrable cyber security unit so that election hacking and many other negative things will be guarded now some might think that donald trump's unpredictability might be an asset when negotiating with foreign leaders however sometimes it appears that his support. are just as confused as his adversaries. r. t. new york and a former u.s. diplomat jim believes inconsistency is just
a way of keeping his critics guessing i think they are sometimes difficult to pin pin down during the campaign someone said that the american voters took him seriously but not literally that he would express things in somewhat different ways that maybe seem contradictory sometime maybe is a little bit of an annoyance for them sometimes especially if they feel they need to answer literally up here and say sean spicer is position or kellyanne conway is position they say what trump said this or that he said that how do you explain it and maybe it puts them on the spot the bigger issue is whether he keeps his critics off balance and i think this is part of how he does it. it is an international thanks for joining us so far off area and so if if a nazi has spoken to a veteran drug enforcement agent to spend decades on the cover exposing cartels across latin america is an extract you can watch the full interview later on friday
when i was working undercover at you had to be extremely careful. you know not be nervous because drug dealers by their psychological makeup are very very suspicious you know there are they suffer from paranoia and they passed you constantly they ask you questions what i did to control any type of nervousness is expunged from my mind that i was a d. e agent and psychologically i transform myself into a drug lord. i was one of them i dressed like i like. i could not afford to think like law enforcement and i did law enforcement for so many years but i had to completely completely remove that from my mind
and it was a transformation very much like an actor and does before he plays a role in the movies or on television however. in this case you were playing a deadly game of cat and mouse any minor mistake that you made and you worried that . it is already international france's official presidential portrait has never really posed much of a problem until the latest incumbent emanuel macron or now wants a bigger one than his predecessors. by.
we are now in arab russia a warm spot in the south region of russia called krasnodar this place is located on the southeastern tip of the black sea but across from crimea which makes it a great russian summer getaway adipose filled with fresh fruits seafood restaurants lots of russian history windsurfing beaches you name it has it all. and just a few months ago a new international airport has opened up in an hour and we're about to check it out let's go. and. get
a deal that afternoon you live in new glad to meet you let's go to. what makes it. different or on the same level as international there are grandmamma's the ship and it's a canal or do even our fourth of the main thing is the right combination of the airport technologies you have to go through everything intuitively but with understanding where you are going there is navigation but everything should progress logically about what happens to you and section cells registration registration a second inspections of shops commerce and technology when you have this right but it allows a person to be in a comfortable zone it doesn't then you need to control the expectations of the passenger and then he feels relaxed that if a person knows what will happen to him and gets more than he expects that he feels calm and we get good feedback on how everything is organized and that's the secret you know this is that's a secret that is emotionally and because i mean think of it.
