11:01 am
in the southeast asian country is the minority going to hinge a community. to pressure. me watching our international security council is currently holding an emergency meeting on the crisis on the korean peninsula and the russian envoy is currently speaking let's listen. larger than ever before. you the latest is a really good blatant display of disregard by north korea of the relevant security council resolutions and the norms of international law warrants that bolster v.m.s. to the vehement condemnation the more we can not bug regret the fact that the d.p. r. k. leadership through its action to undermine the global nonproliferation regime is
11:02 am
posing a grave threat to peace and stability on the korean peninsula and at the global level. pursuit of such a policy is fraught with serious repercussions for the d.p. r. k. itself. but at the same time it is evident to us that military solutions cannot settle the issues plaguing the north korean peninsula. given the unfolding situation there is an urgent need to maintain a cool head to refrain from any action that can further escalate tensions. we reaffirm the need for a comprehensive infocom plans by all stakeholders with the relevant security council statements and resolutions including the recent resolution twenty three
11:03 am
seventy one adopted by consensus. with many to delved into the history of attempts to halt the d.p. r. k. nuclear and ballistic program if this x. curse is sent to history only serves as evidence of the fact that we felt to resolve this issue through security council resolution which were only geared towards leveraging sanctions mechanisms husing we call upon all stay. calder's to immediately return to dialogue and negotiations that is the sole way to comprehensibly settle the issues besetting the nuke the korean peninsula including nuclear issues we reaffirm our willingness to engage in concerted efforts among these lines including in the context of implementation of the russo chinese road map for you but mr president
11:04 am
the russian federation calls for the international community not to yield to emotions to opt in a calm and balanced way once again we stress that a comprehensive settlement to the nuclear in other issues plaguing the korean peninsula can be arrived at soley through political diplomatic channels including by leveraging the mediation efforts of the united nations secretary general thank you. i think that i possess the represented through the russian position put his statement. give the floor to them to do. ok religious listening there to the russian ambassador to the u.n. bacilli bindiya and he was saying how important it is for the u.n. not to yield to emotions he said and to act in a carmen way he said the only solution is through diplomatic channels and again
11:05 am
said the important thing to try now is that proposal that two tracks solution is being proposed by russia and china which would see north korea stop its missile testing program and in return america and south korea would stop their military exercises in the region that's what's being proposed a lot to talk about still the meeting still going on and we'll keep our cross it for you in the meantime the u.s. envoy to the united nations said that washington's patience with north korea is not unlimited he halley told the emergency security council meeting that pyongyang appears to be begging for war. to the members of the security council i must say enough is enough nuclear powers understand their responsibilities kim jong un shows no such understanding his abusive use of missiles and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for war. war is never something the united states wants we don't want
11:06 am
it now when our country's patience is not unlimited also speaking this afternoon as china condemned north korea's latest nuclear test on sunday and called for all countries to return to the negotiating table however washington does seem to be pushing in the opposite direction the u.s. defense secretary james mattis has said that america is preparing a wide range of military responses to the crisis. president trump reaffirmed the commitment of the united states to defending our homeland territories and allies using the full range of diplomatic conventional and nuclear capabilities at our disposal. we have many military options and the president wanted to be briefed on each one of them any threat to the united states george territories including. or our allies will be met with a massive military response a response both objective and overwhelming that's actually kind of an unexpected
11:07 am
and drastic change in tone coming from modest there who is really starting to sound more like trump now he did add that america is not seeking the annihilation of north korea but it's highly unlikely that those comments will be of any comfort to anyone in north korea given how quickly his stance changed from there's always the possibility of a diplomatic solution to we don't want to kill you but we certainly can if need be now the statements are you made even more ominous given comments made by president trump before he met with madison the other generals the president we were real. earlier on sunday trump did tweet that all options are being considered when it comes to north korea but it is clear that the military option seems to be becoming the favorite for the trump administration meanwhile we have china and russia urging all sides to show restraint but it seems that team trump is going to stick with the
11:08 am
aggressive rhetoric that we've seen from the president as of late they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never seen north korea better get their act together where they're going to be trouble like you they should ever have been in trouble in this world. and this may not get away with what he's doing really and this is really already escalated past just a war of words we've already seen america bolster their military presence in the region and continue to conduct drills with south korea much to the displeasure of their northern neighbors and trump has gotten a fair amount of backlash for some of his aggressive comments both here at home and abroad but the u.s. state department for their part has defended his comments saying that it's simply the only way to communicate with the north korean leader exacerbating the president spoke to him to kim jong un in a language that secretary tillerson has said and said this morning in the kind of
11:09 am
language that kim jong un will understand but clearly america really has no plans of changing their tactics but despite the fact that all of their aggressive rhetoric and saying that talking will not work and attacking north korea has only lead to further threats from north korea and more missile tests but washington seems unwilling to change their plan of action pushing the whole world closer to the edge of war. because there was another news tonight syrian government forces the said to be close to liberating the city has been under siege by islamic state for the last three years residents of the city have been night on the streets celebrating the military's it bums. the. well as as you can see on the map here the syrian army is now only
11:10 am
a few kilometers away from the restore and they have secured a route to attack the terrorist controlled part of the city government forces have been advancing rapidly as we said in fact they have gained eight kilometers in the last twenty four hours or so securing strategic positions along the way russian fighter jets supporting government forces have destroyed tanks and armored vehicles and seventy seventy terrorists we're told have been killed with more details his. there is or is the city that has been able to survive a total toll siege by islamic state for some three years and that means that the only way to deliver food medicine there is air drops that also means constant fear of either being shelled by islamic state or being captured by eisel fighters and right now it looks like the sea is closer to being broken than ever before at
11:11 am
least according to the news that we're getting from the syrian government the army are claiming that they are now approaching the city journalists have been able to contact the governor of arizona and he claims that within the next forty eight hours or so the syrian army will be able to enter the city of. and of course in this case the government is really determined they're confident and no wonder the locals are celebrating we've already received the first pictures of that but here's something for you to understand the suffering that they've been through in these three years of siege as you were on a very good indeed the navy as isis terrorists raided our house my thirteen year old cousin was staying with us i had her in a water tank so that the terrorists didn't take her as a slave it was obvious that. the situation in a resort is catastrophic terrorist from iraq execute civilians in the streets and leave bodies lying there for up to five days i secretly drove my sons out of the
11:12 am
city otherwise isis militants would recruit them by force inject psychotropic substances and gives them a suicide bomb as well actually the area around it is not the last islamic state stronghold in syria but you cannot underestimate the strategic importance of this area if it happens if its state gets kicked out of the province that means essentially that said for their fighters in iraq the deal. facto capital of islamic state they will have nowhere to run and here's the russian defense minister with more on that. today was to teach you. which i would call a priority. have been courageously defending it for years now well food medicine and whip up to the liberation of the city would be a point in the defeat of isis and so it is getting more evident that the joint efforts by the russian military their air force and the syrian government troops
11:13 am
have really taken their toll on islamic state fighters and the area we've put together a reminder of the latest successful military ops airstrikes and advancements in the last few weeks. so let's wait for more news from the day or a store front line at least if we are to believe the syrian army we are going to get them very very soon in
11:14 am
a prank that well we discuss the future of the war in syria with middle east expert . oh i think it's an exciting poignant moment a real turning point in what we've we've known until this point in the last six years as the syrian war i think come once. the city is taken in the surrounding region is flushed out of isis fighters we can start to really talk about the end of the war and a new chapter for possibly restoring peace in the country i think western media will play up. the u.s. backed victory in iraq. but not report so heavily on the defeat of i saw in the in. in because you know it's mixed it's a hugely significant for just the last staging post now of all this terror organization there are no other huge cities or major towns so now the question is
11:15 am
you know what will be the second stage of the of the syrian war will we see a problem now with syrian government forces and their allies like russia and hezbollah and americans in syria. now with the world cup on the horizon for russia the focus is on fan safety and on friday germany's national football team criticized the group of its supporters after they shouted nazi chance during your world cup qualifier peter oliver has the story. well outrageous scenes from sections of the travelling support on friday night as germany beat the czech republic to warn in prague in the stands well some of their fans decided that they were going to make some wholly inappropriate chants we understand that there were nazi chants heard from the crowd from sections there well this is upsetting for a number of reasons they also whistled during a minute's silence that was held in memorial to to check officials who had died
11:16 am
just recently and it was also the seventy eighth anniversary of the nazi invasion of poland this was deemed wholly unacceptable by the german team yorkie unload the german head coach said that they brought shame on our country really angry reaction from the german team to this incident but this isn't the only incident of its kind regarding football just last month was uncovered the day a website sells what's called fan wear at times on official products supposed to be worn by fans but some of the t. shirts that they were turning out well they made reference to the nazi invasion of the soviet union during world war two now r.t. reached out to fee for a statement on this future has a zero tolerance approach to discrimination and has mechanisms in place to ensure that the atmosphere in the stadiums is one of celebration and respect i do this with such symbols and messages are considered discriminatory and will not be
11:17 am
tolerated inside the stadiums but ahead of the world cup there's been a lot of talk about fun safety fun security but most of the talk particularly here in europe has focused on. homegrown hooligans those that may be in russia with a lot less focus falling on those that perhaps may be planning to travel to russia for the tournament since the story about the online store selling not seen spied clothing broke the highly controversial t. shirts we understand have now disappeared from sight. washing off the international going to take a quick break but when we come back the leader of me is facing mounting criticism as thousands of muslims from the oppression in the country will have a live reaction in a couple of minutes. here's
11:18 am
what people have been saying about rejected and. the only show i go out of my way to. the really packs that. is the john oliver of a party america is going to say we are apparently better than. the c. people you've never heard of love jack to the next president of the world bank very . seriously send us an e-mail. seems wrong but. just don't. get to shape out. and engage. the trail. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
11:19 am
welcome back to take and i will most ninety thousand range of muslims have fled the southeast asian countries mean mafia in violence oppression by authorities over a million muslims live in the mainly put his country in mazda fact a leader was once hailed a hero but she is now facing mounting criticism and there cheeta reports. what attributes do you think of when you envisage the ideal leader maybe a symbol of groundbreaking political revolution obviously a person who holds the interests of the people or do you visualize an individual hailed by the media as a hero she was an inspiration during the country's evolution in the eighty's and even won the nobel peace prize as well as a u.s. congress tional golden medal the leader of the southeast asian states of myanmar on
11:20 am
sun tsu cheek. witness to history treated like some. leaders talk. doesn't this sound like democratic perfection but sadly reality is far from perfect while the leader revels in glory the country is home to what the u.n. calls the most persecuted minority in the world the ranger a muslim community of more than a million people the minimal government doesn't recognize them as citizens of the country effectively making them illegal immigrants last year a series of brutal attacks were launched against the community after it clashed with police as the minority desperately try to draw the authorities attention to their horrific plight since then more than a thousand civilians have been killed and more than twenty thousand internally
11:21 am
displaced government forces have also been accused of wide scale human rights violations also and rape and murder. was. the military destroyed everything after killing somebody of the military burn their houses and shops now there's a danger to our survival that's why we. all i got the how to let him out of the i can still hear their screams and my heart and my ears we are really scared we don't feel safe now where every security as we heard the sounds from here and there were security even when we eat and my heart is beating so fast. the gun lobby there like after my husband was killed i had no option but to run for
11:22 am
my children's lives we spent two nights in the hells and sneaks past the border my children haven't had any food yet and they keep crying we only got scared because people from the camp gave us the bus. refugees coming across the border they come across or a bullet was trapped in a woman's quite clearly this is a scorched earth offensive by the burmese military the government has to stop this offensive it has to. basically allow humanitarian assistance and also the journalists into this area we have to actually see what's happened because quite clearly human rights violations have taken place western officials have been vocal about the ongoing crisis including the u.s. envoy to the un nikki haley who's urging the need to step in and and the violence
11:23 am
as burmese security forces act to prevent further violence they have responsibility to adhere to international humanitarian law which includes refraining from attacking innocent civilians and humanitarian workers and ensuring assistance reaches those in need but the leader is not only making no attempt to stop the violence against the persecuted minority she has made the situation even worse by posting hateful content online one comment declares that revenge a makeshift army is a terrorist organization whilst the oppressed muslim minority fights to survive. critics warn the west old favorite on sun city is doing everything but trying to resolve this deepening crisis. ok we can get the thoughts now of the president of the ranger organization in the u.k. and kim he's with us good evening to you and welcome to r.t. look firstly i understand that you have managed to speak to some refugees that have fled can you just tell us what have you heard and what are the main dangers that
11:24 am

11:25 am
and crisis is growing and there is no food no shelter norma do you think. children are dying to have id and on top of that there is about thirty five thousand rohingya. trapped on the monti you know there are many children as value men and women are dying there so it's a horrific situation that we are witnessing you know his story you know what's happening right now against really good people is general slight it's a diary killings involve where bomb is military is continuing in ten days i don't know well you can see unturned the government they say that they're actually confronting terrorists what sure reaction to that. it's not true the government you know the government is just like. you know the government is simply . bonding and killing their own civilly ends you know those are
11:26 am
those groups are far is just kind of some desperate you know they are they become unbearable situation and therefore they took a test i guess you know those police post but no matter what we were going very deft violence we would like to see through that because the for the ruling a solution but the bomb is governmental that let it happen and to attack them and to now they have taken an f. they are targeting the law the whole population even they are not attacking of those attack us you know they are targeting whole population of one point three million or rolling up population they are targeting that that is what the country a collective punishment who wishes perpetrate on crime against humanity by the bombings on me i should what should be done then in your opinion to hold this crisis but what can be done. it's really important we are facing
11:27 am
a margin for excess as i mentioned is the general side want to go we're not directly involved so bomb is government is failing to protect their own get instead they are perpetrating prime minister amenity bill a tree and a government so we need international collective action. to protect the lives of lysol international community so we need international community effort to action to stop these mass pressure to barmaids military and. g. and what international community should do it has been going on many decades we are facing losses of general site so all of what we've been facing now is time for international community set up timeline and benchmarks like british like. they must stop you know training to bomb is military stop why did it man to
