tv Headline News RT September 4, 2017 1:00pm-1:30pm EDT
here's what people have been saying about redacted in night to us exactly just pull along. we'll only show i go out of my way to launch you know a lot of the really packs a punch at least yampa is the john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are apparently better than food. i see people you've never heard of love back to the night my president of the world bank so kate was really. serious when he sent us an e-mail. our headline stories this hour washington's all diplomatic solution to the prices on the korean peninsula. dismisses russia and china's suggestions as insulting and feels to propose any alternative also.
breaking the blockade residents of syria's dear is a worse celebrates on the streets government forces moving to liberate this city it's being besieged by islamic state for three years. tens of thousands of muslims in myanmar philebus sign east asian country as the minority community struggles against violent state to. live from the russian capital every hour of the day this is our team international my names you know neil welcome to the program the u.s. envoy to the united nations sais washington's patience with north korea is not on limited nikki haley made the comments during an emergency security council meeting earlier it appeared to end in deadlock as the u.s.
this miss possible plans for deescalating the crisis. in europe has been listening in from washington d.c. and joins us live on the program so what was said during the security council meeting. well once again the u.s. has a threat and north korea saying that came jong un is begging for war let's take a look. 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 it now but our country's patience is not unlimited.
well nikki haley is comments are nothing new even yesterday u.s. defense secretary jim mattis said that he would you say u.s. would use any means necessary to defend itself from north korea washington has been threatening north korea for weeks now and the rhetoric has. grown even stronger ever since president try and north korea threatened to respond to north korea with fire and fury. well thankfully it hasn't gone beyond threats but it's worth mentioning that to the u.s. hasn't yet proposed a viable solution except for sanctions which have proven to be ineffective for the past decade or so russia and china however in contrast have asked for a dialogue with north korea. but it is a. little bit you know comprehensive settlement to the nuclear and other issues
plaguing the korean peninsula can be arrived at so me through political and diplomatic channels we reiterate our readiness to help this process via the implementation of the initiative proposed by russia and china. china and russia have proposed a new initiative for the denuclearization of the korean peninsula it is practical and feasible and aimed at easing the tensions and preventing further escalation. yes well russia and china have proposed the double freeze initiative which would require north korea to stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in return for the u.s. and south korea to stop their military drills a move which washington considers to be offensive. the idea that some have suggested a so-called freeze for free is insulting when a rogue regime has a nuclear weapon and an i.c.b.m.
pointed at you you do not take steps to lower your guard no one would do that we certainly won't. yes well it seems that as of now the situation is in a deadlock at least until the u.s. decides that threats and sanctions are counterproductive to the situation if they ever do. live from washington d.c. some your accounting with the. syrian government forces are said to be close to liberating the city of durham is a war which shows been siege by islamic state for three years we received exclusive video of the battle for a key challenger in the operation. of government forces come be seen here firing rockets advancing with tanks on helicopters pushing islamic state back getting closer to dervis or here's one of
the fighters. why don't we have the national defense forces heading to liberate the people of there is or with the syrian arab army god willing. let's take a look here on mop you can see the syrian army is now only a few kilometers away from der is or they have secured a route to attack the terrorist controlled part of the city while government forces have been advancing rapidly they have gained eight kilometers over the past day securing strategic positions on the way russian fighter jets supporting government forces have destroyed tanks and armored vehicles seventy terrorists have been killed with more on what we know here so. there as or is a city that has been able to survive a total tools 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 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 bears or 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 isis terrorists raided our
house my thirteen year old cousin was staying with us i hit 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 by secretly drove my sons out of the city otherwise isis militants would recruit them by force inject psychotropic substances and use them as suicide bombers 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 rock the deal. facto capital of islamic state they will have nowhere to run and here's the russian defense minister with more on that story and today there was to teach you.
a resume which would. have been courageously defending it for years now while food medicine. 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 have really taken their toll on the islamic state fighters in 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 we discussed the future of the war in syria with middle east expert martin j. . 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. but victory in iraq. but not report so heavily on the defeat of ice will in
in. in because you know it's mixed it's a hugely significant for this the last staging post now or for this terror organization there are no other huge cities or major towns so now the question is 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. through another story we're closely watching this hour almost ninety thousand muslims have fled the scythe east asian country of me and more fearing violent oppression by authorities over a million muslims live in the mainly but this country me and mars defacto leader was once hailed a hero but she's not facing mounting criticism with more here snow do you richard. 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 revolution 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 on sun tsu cheek as. witness to history. to dixie. radio star. 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 displaced government forces have also been accused of wide scale human rights violations osten 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 handy little model i can
still hear their screams and my heart and my ears we are really scared you don't feel safe now don't worry very scared 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 the light off to my husband who was killed i had no option but to run for my children's lives we spent two nights in the house 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 for. refugees coming across the border they come across the border bullet wounds was shrapnel wounds 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 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 favorites on sunset she is doing everything but trying to resolve this deepening crisis. the rich there we spoke with the president of the burmese revenge organization in the u.k. he believes the international community needs to act immediately committed to me in a crisis is growing and there is no food no shelter no medi thing you know what's happening right now against people in general if the diary killings involve whereby
mr military is continuing with in ten days right now to protect the lives of real life on international community we need international community effort to action to stop these pressure to barmaids military and. the leader adolfo through g. so the arabia's blockade of yemen is blamed for causing the death of the founder of the country's red crescent organization we've got live reaction after this.

lund first of all our thoughts on the loss of your colleague of course to you and the entire organization just to the point we spoke about a moment ago dr alchemy she saw on blaine's saudi arabia the u.a.e. for his father's death what are your thoughts on. when i say human you do know that they say should we do not point fingers our goal is to look at the humanitarian consequences of the human first of all it i would like to say on behalf of the movement of the red cross and red crescent that don't mess us and that he who you in his one and i so would complete commitment to the people of yemen and he died and that you did and he die of producing reason millions of receptor in yemen as we speak it is estimated that all graft if you go that is fourteen million out
of the seven million have no access to health care. the u.n. calls this indeed as you're saying the worst humanitarian crisis in the world right now who should be responsible for solving it. when we keep getting that many donations such as ourselves doing our best but it is impossible for the horse to make ends meet basically what a country we speak for the country where we have just. the six hundred and seven thousand suspect that is of that huge job it was going to break up and dance and president in the century only four months we still have the country were over have the relation has no access to clean water to where seven million people wanted it is enclosed with millions of women and children. through
the minority so all these in egypt is going to go it best but we can't solve the crisis so clearly or you believe it is. all of those who are going to use concrete and that many are it is. less of that they did but something that human kept and credible staggering figures that you bring up are international red cross spokesperson you land thank you for your time this hour. human rights watch sees coalition earth strikes indiscriminantly or disproportionately killed thousands of civilians in yemen the situation in the country was recognized by the un security council over seven million people are starving thousands more suffering from color us we just heard yemen remains the poorest country in the mideast. you know. that's what. a
lot of. this i think you. know that it doesn't. with the world cup on the horizon for russia next year the focus is on safety it comes as germany's national football team criticized a group of its supporters after they did not see chance during a world cup qualifying game peter all of our us more in the story. outrageous scenes from sections of the travelling support on friday night as germany beat the czech republic to one 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 just recently and it was also the seventy eighth anniversary of the nazi invasion of poland this was deemed wholly unacceptable by the german tame him load the german head coach said that they've brought shame on our country it's a 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 unofficial 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 for 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 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 is 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. well since the story about the online store selling nazi inspired clothing broke the highly controversial t. shirts have disappeared from the site you're watching international i'll be back
and around thirty five minutes time with more global news from our moscow stay with us. the spiral downward this applies to both russia u.s. relations and the ongoing events on the korean peninsula we passed the point richard. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the senate it's full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it is that really packs a punch. yampa is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than. the c.
people you've never heard of love redacted tonight not the president of the world bank so take. me seriously send us an e-mail. when almost seems wrong why don't we all just don't call. me. yet to stamp out to stay. active. and engaged equals betrayal. when something you find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
hello welcome to sophia komi sophie shevardnadze as take your opinion struggles to hammer out a solution to its unity crisis israelis one member who needs more attention than others struggling with a refugee and cloaks and with a potential banking crisis on its hands it can use all the help from the e.u. it can get but will roll finding answers to his problems in brussels well into his minister for european affairs sounder agazzi is with me today to talk about all of this. within hours bickering over refugee quotas failing austerity measures and a rising tide of euro skeptic nationalism that's already resulted in the u.k. so the european union project is bracing for a turbulent and testing future and this is a reform starting time before another crisis hits the european powers here the cause of poor states and can be ambition of the continental union and do another sixty years. it is minister for european affairs sandra garth c.
welcome to the show great to have you with us and as you got said the euro experiment has failed at least that's what noble economist joseph stiglitz s so are it stays number no i disagree i do not seeing that you will experiment europe is in reality and i do not think it is certainly the eurozone and the government of the eurozone must be must be shaped up. to go to war this direction not going backwards. no you were talking about reform right every time i heard you talk and give interviews to talk about reform but every year is own state has its own interests at heart so why is anybody going to listen to what well miss saying right now what i mean. it is true that the debate on the eurozone and the debate on how to reform the eurozone as being postponed many times but i
do believe that in the second half of this year the time would be right to open the debate to be after the french elections have to be after the german elections and i do believe that everybody agreed that we must complete and they must by the shape or the economic and monetary union and these also a commitment which was taken in rome when the. leader of the twenty seven member states. there on the correlation last twenty fifth of march they clearly say we must complete the economic and monetary union which. in war. must seem that war means we must open the debate on how the euro is run but why wait till the french and german elections don't you think it's a little bizarre that the issue of heroes over form has grown up right now. or hasn't been brought up as of yet maybe people don't have courage to.
