tested last tuesday as it flew over japan when i was look at the reaction there from u.s. president donald trump at the time you said that all options were on the table and this contributed to the strong rhetoric the feinstein rhetoric that e.g. use throughout the escalation of tensions on the korean peninsula. north korea better get their act together or they're going to be trouble like few days shouldn't ever have been in trouble in this world. and this may not get away with what he's doing believe they will be met with fire fury. like the world has never seen. oh yes we heard far inferior and this is the first nuclear test of trump's administration the last one coming in september. twenty sixteen and he comes ahead of the break as i say in the mean time the u.s. and south korea have been conducting military drills in the area along with japanese fighter jets overhead as well and this is
5:04 am
a range pyongyang and the main song that we've also had international reaction as we hear in china the chinese crimea condemned the action and also as we heard we can't reaction from the russian foreign ministry had a quote it says the test is that demonstrative disregard of the u.n. security council resolution and deserves decisive condemnation we've also had reports of reaction coming through from south korea israel reportedly considering deploying the most powerful u.s. tactical weapons we haven't had any confirmation on that that's just a report but the russians science as they do as is their policy have called for all sides to resume dialogue they believe the only way to resolve the problems on the korean peninsula is for all the parties involved to get together around the negotiating table and that is the way forward. reporting thank you. following north korea's missile test on tuesday the japanese military requested a record high in light of the escalation in the region and despite all the limitations put on the japanese military since world war two it still managed to
5:05 am
position itself among the world's leading forces prime minister's repeated calls for a change to the country's constitution allowing japan to use its self-defense forces overseas of only heightened tensions both at home and abroad and neighboring china has viewed tokyo's latest military boost as a threat as well and. japan's defense budget is increasing every year it has now grown to new historical high we're concerned about this in recent years too bad has been playing up and exaggerating the so-called china's threat and has continued to increase is defense budget professor from the school of international affairs so as the situation is becoming more dangerous. you know there are there's been a lot of pressure coming from the u.s. these are already are being fired if you read all these things so i think you're all responding in that we believe that he laws which is true militarism normally is
5:06 am
not helping because by constantly provoking for us as robert civilized sort of civilized language it has also come down for a street fight and that's not how been proving that we don't situation it is it being generous schoolish you know that's going on out of control and to start with i think it's important that we come back today and are and not for you know. the russian foreign minister has demanded the return of us diplomatic properties in the united states which were closed. according to washington's orders moscow's the move was a deeply hostile act aimed at undermining u.s. russia relations let's get details on this now r.t. and they're going to joining us live here in this studio so what's the latest we know on this than the day the u.s. security forces have conducted searches in three russian outposts in the u.s. san francisco washington and new york what we do have is
5:07 am
a number of videos to show the facility in san francisco an inspection took place and you can see from one of the videos that the security officials who are actually searching the apartments for the president still in there as you can imagine we've had some reaction i just need to mention as well that the the trade facility in washington is also been searched but we have had some reactions and the head of the trade mission has told journalists that he feels that the search is a town. hall. burris there are some where we can sing an example of a man delays in international relations it's an illegal takeover of russian property brode we haven't been expecting such an unwanted guests and we don't welcome them since two pm local time the us doesn't think we have diplomatic immunity anymore. there's also been other reactions and we had reaction from the russian foreign ministry the spokes person there has slammed the search and i read this that you as a diabolical circus that's illegal and pointless and we just have to take note
5:08 am
here that the diplomats and their families only had two days to vacate their properties there now if we look at the reasons one of the reasons that the u.s. has stated is that this is part of new measures of the anti russian sanctions and they've also insisted that this is also a response to russia's decision to reduce the size of the u.s. mission in russia back in july twenty seventeen we've also had a reaction from the russian foreign minister himself spoken out about the decision to close the facilities is also said that russia is not the instigator of those moves measures as we can listen to right now. this. story was not launched by russia it was started by the u.s. administrator with the only purpose of us russian relations completely u.s. we're not seeking conflict with this cold truth always been friendly towards the
5:09 am
american people and we're still open to constructive relationships but as you know it takes two to tango now it looks like our american partners will break. time over time so as you can see the relations between the u.s. and russia are still pretty tense as far as russia is concerned this is a violation of international law and according to experts we've spoken to they see this as excessive in terms of the measures that are being taken. thank you. but the u.s. department u.s. state department or so i mean time saying the searches are legal claiming diplomatic immunity is revoked following any closure however the vienna convention states immunity remains in place until diplomatic staff the country. vienna convention on diplomatic relations article twenty two point one the premises of the mission shall be inviolable the agents of the receiving states may not enter them except with the consent of the head of the mission. school thirty nine point two
5:10 am
when the functions of a person enjoying privileges and immunities have come to an end such privileges and immunities should normally cease at the moment when he leaves the country. so let's all remember how it all started it was back in december then president barack obama expelled thirty five russian diplomats over alleged election meddling while or choosing not to respond in kind on the same day president vladimir putin invited the children of u.s. diplomats in russia to a new year party at the kremlin and then in july after the u.s. house of representatives overwhelmingly passed a new anti russia sanctions bill moscow cut the u.s. diplomatic presence in russia to the same level that has in america and that led to extend the sanctions and analysts told us the raid is a clear violation of international law. i think international lays it down very clearly the one hundred sixty one fianna convention of to plastic relations says
5:11 am
that any diplomatic affiliated premises and from country. and any incursion on that territory is therefore seen as an attack on the country that is hosting that diplomatic mission so this is a breach of international law that there is some sort of meaningless parade of power by raising america the big issue here is now that this creates a bad precedent because with this event taking place now in the united states other countries may follow i guess embassies with which they don't have good relations with this is a collapse of all of the international diplomatic system by what the americans and the u.s. government is trying to do. the battle to force islamic state from war torn iraq has devastated civilian lives particularly those of children is continuing its
5:12 am
campaign to find the relatives of children abandoned by their parents fighting for i still and more of these children from mosul were recently brought to a baghdad orphanage. the. moment when one. night to goof off for a moment and then she. has
5:13 am
got into. the girl's name here is how deja a foot was badly burned on the boy the following boy is mohammed right there he's struggling with a knee injury and both children are still under a lot of stress and refused to speak with the kids who are with them say they're from chechnya if you recognize either them or know someone who might please contact us said children of t.v. dot com ati's a correspondent on what i guess the takes a look at the problems that children face in war torn iraq. these children have seen more bloodshed and agony than most adults will in a lifetime nearly ninety percent of children have lost a member of a family either they were kidnapped or killed and when they were escaping from the
5:14 am
fight many of them have lost family members they were shot at from behind or falling on booby traps it has been a horrible experience. so this helicopter flies around. dropping down on the floor and i'm carrying some of them my some of them feel when they see for a mask some of them feel when they see you know people that they are not comfortable in with some of them shut up and say no what for quite a long time until they could actually opened up definitely they go all the extreme distress and also physically unfortunately many of them are wounded. many of the hospital as we visit confirmed that. the biggest number of civilians they have in the hospitals are children traumatized in mind and body but alive
5:15 am
lucky by local standards though let's be frank stuck in orphanages and refugee camps in iraq and you believe given the sheer magnitude of the problem thousands and thousands of orphans and little. do you believe you can adequately help them we are helping those sold and we see certainly we don't have enough resources the children are almost everywhere but ultimately the support comes from family from government and the extended family that once we connect children they are everybody scheme to receive them and the support of the problem is made. king the connection all of these orphans rocky so many foreign children of isis fighters. and how it is much better a foreign children were reunited with their families they will have problems here
5:16 am
with documents in schools with health care they need their families love problems is putting it lightly in iraq tribal culture venerates blood feuds and revenge isis harmed millions there are those who would use these children who hate them for what their parents did. vulnerable for abuse they are vulnerable for trafficking. or for. any danger that children exposed to in today's technology any. bad group. could get those children unharmed them some of these lost children a raped their assaulted abused and abandoned killed for their organs hated for the sins of their fathers the un and uni seth do what they can to protect them
5:17 am
but there are too many getting them out is a reward unto itself. we helped identify and reunite a number of these children yet it isn't straightforward uni set for example once these kids identities protected fearing stigma or exploitation we know we tell our children. if we do not allow our children to talk to normalize tensions that we did not know how do we think of allowing a child that had gone through a. crisis. to expose him to a big comma it's a hard choice you can show their faces for everyone to see and let their relatives recognize them or pray that they find them themselves one desperate young
5:18 am
refugees the rocks millions more i guess. for many believe iraq and your weekly continues here on r.t. in just a moment one of the stories in the mix if you worldwide news that have a fledgling a french for your french president or mine or macro his ratings have taken such. a nosedive will compare him to his predecessors and just. seems wrong. to me. to say how just being educated and engaged equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. choose to look for common ground.
5:19 am
on. what politicians do to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to be rich. to be crooks that's what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of. your sunday with us here on out see hundreds of people took to the streets of paris on wednesday to protest against president new label lol designed to make it easier

5:21 am
it's a big attack of the hierarchy deals will now take over those are some of the reasons why the demonstrators hey i feel so passionately against these reforms to the working code but not everybody is unhappy with the plans to reform the working take in front forms that suggest it will mean that in four years we'll have more ability to hire and fire people to negotiate over salary in terms of additional hours that people work and that's why the head of the employers federation has actually come out not just in support of this reform but is actually a manual not going to go all in when he introduces that working before some people have described this as being a bellwether for my presidency because this is his first major attempt to pass a big piece of legislation hearing fronts but precesses have failed to see.

will be able despite his continuing plunging popularity in the public in the polls to. able to pressure this reform through and to appease the french people charlotte devinsky all see paris and as a macro move to reshape the economy anger is rising among the french people latest polls right here show that just three months into his term already less than one off approve of his policies although at the same point in their presidencies are pretty as i said nicolas sarkozy had sixty nine percent support and even in france are all on to became known as a mr popular had fifty four despite those findings a government spokesman claims the figures can be ignored or will quote transform the country we asked people in paris about the presidents of power and fall from grace so it doesn't surprise me that what he's doing is making human popular
5:23 am
nobody supports his proposal for extending working hours. the french people are too closed minded when it comes to changing benefit reform so it's not surprising that his ratings of foreign. very rare for presidents popularity to increase so i'm not too surprised we need to give him time to get things done he won the election so we need to leave for that but we spoke to the editor in chief of a popular magazine who believes macro his character is grating with voters. this country and the spirit race is not a surprise to anybody. find. a solution. right here he spreads white polish prime minister said that this remark was. right because what he said. what he said maybe oh so later he's right up to. this. precise painful truth racist something which is totally

anger at this crime committed against them. to my sons were martyred by the saudi aggressors they were farmers they had nothing to do with the war to the international community to the united nations to punish those who committed this crime. or not would demand that the international community and the united nations which is remaining silent find a solution for these disparate people. in another incident fourteen people were killed when a saudi led code. allison strike hit a residential building in the neighborhood the destruction brought down an entire apartment block and young girl was the only survivor from one family and she is now being treated in hospital a warning you may well find the following images disturbing. they know. and every gate. and idea she is the only child who survived the air strikes that
5:26 am
hit the house and. all of her family died her father mother and siblings. perished. we found multiple fractures in her left cheek as well as cracks in the bone around her eye and across her forehead. all the saudi led coalition so the bombing of the residential area was a quote technical mistake we spoke with a human rights activist about the dire situation in yemen. they have to be held responsible under international law unfortunately what we have is the power of the international politics that is supporting the saudi led coalition that is causing untold amounts of these war crimes secret council is dominated by two prominent members who are the ones who are selling the weapons to the saudi regime and that
5:27 am
is where the main obstacle lies unfortunately and every move to commission an international investigation you will find that these two countries britain and the us do everything they can to obstruct to that the saudi regime along with all those who are assisting them in this unfortunate creation of man made catastrophe and the young men have to be tried for war crimes sooner or later or thanks for sharing your sunday with us here at all to international and joining us for the weekly we are back in about thirty two. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around
