washington north korea is begging for its patients. deescalation. turn of. the streets government forces move into. its.
4:01 pm
country as the minority really. struggle. so fresh. warm welcome to our international. company our top story this hour the u.s. envoy to the united nations say's the sea is failing with north korea washington is losing patience nikki haley made the comments during an emergency security council meeting earlier the crisis talks appeared to end. the u.s. this miss possible plans for deescalating the crisis. the u.s. has threatened north korea once again saying that kim jong un is begging for war to the members of the security council i must say enough is enough nuclear powers
4:02 pm
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 when our country's patience is not unlimited ambassador haley's comments are nothing new even yesterday secretary of defense jim mattis said that the u.s. would use any means necessary to defend itself from north korea the u.s. has been threatening military action for weeks now and the rhetoric has been growing even stronger ever since trump promised to respond to north korea with fire and fury thankfully it doesn't go beyond this exchange of threats however it's worth mentioning that washington is yet to provide a viable solution except for sanctions which have proven to be ineffective for the
4:03 pm
past decade or so russia and china however in contrast have asked for a dialogue with north korea but as it is foolish little that you know the 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 through the implementation of the initiative proposed by russia china. china and russia have proposed an initiative for the denuclearization of the korean peninsula it is practical and feasible and aimed at easing the tensions and preventing further escalation will 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 its military drills this is a move that washington considers to be offensive the idea that some have suggested
4:04 pm
a so-called freeze for freeze 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 it seems that as of now the situation is in a deadlock at least until the us decides that threats and sanctions are counterproductive to the situation if they ever do like discuss the hostilities on the korean peninsula or the un security council deadlock with political analyst ready. this moment the lone wolf of north korea the rest of everyone else needs to be alarmed and hunting packs it's through that alarm and through that collaboration then we can see a change in circumstances but it's all getting a little bit too muscular and i think it's a global rivalry this getting in the way over the line is that why you think washington has been so dismissive then of the plan proposed by russia and china
4:05 pm
because it's proposed by russia and china i wonder if that was proposed by germany france and the u.k. where it would be so dismissive i doubt it one of the other nations in all this side career japan what reaction can we expect from them how alarmed do you think that they are by washington's comments. hugely along ten million people living in solon obviously is not a great moment for him it's not a great moment for the japanese but let's hope the common social sense will provide the americans with hearing some nikki haley is about as tough as i've heard her i'm not sure she can get any tougher i think this is a part of the limit what i'm hoping what i think we'll see is a coming together of russia china united nations and common sense will prevail. syrian government forces are said to be close to liberating the city of durham
4:06 pm
which has been under siege by islamic state for three years we received exclusive video of the battle for a key talent during the operation. government forces can be seen firing rockets advancing with tanks and helicopters pushing back and getting closer to. their relief all the residents visible. this is for the syrian arab army my god protect them thank god we have been liberated and there is your own happiness today is indescribable we have been waiting for the army for a long time may god help the army i wish i had come earlier the people here are exhausted really exhausted the residents of suffered for a long time. hopefully the victory will be soon victory is hopefully coming soon.
4:07 pm
let's take a look at the situation here the syrian army is now only a few kilometers away from durban they have secured a route to attack the terrorist controlled part of this city this area where government forces have been advancing rapidly they've gained eight kilometers over the past day securing strategic positions on the way russian fighter jets supporting government forces have destroyed tanks armored vehicles and seventy terrorists being killed with more on what we know here so we need to try and go. there as 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
4:08 pm
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. 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. of the navy as isis terrorists raided our house my thirteen year old cousin was staying with us i had here in a water tank so that the terrorists didn't take her as a slave it was obvious that. the situation in their resort is catastrophic
4:09 pm
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. today was to teach you. which i would call a priority because these feces have been courageously defending it for years now well food medicine and whip up to the liberation of the city would be
4:10 pm
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 and the area we've put together a reminder of the latest successful military ops airstrikes and advancements in the last few weeks.
4:11 pm
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 you know the question is where this leave us we discuss 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 and 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 in because you know it's mixed it's
4:12 pm
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 on their allies like russia has below and americans in syria. around ninety thousand muslims have fled the southeast asian country of me and maher if you're being violent oppression by authorities over a million muslims live in the mainly but this country i mean mars the fact a leader was once hailed a hero but she's now facing mounting criticism that you're a cheater looks further into all the. 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
4:13 pm
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 sun tsu cheek. witness to history. to excite. 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
4:14 pm
a series of brutal attacks were launched against the community after it clashed with police as the minority desperately tried 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 also and rape and murder. 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 in there
4:15 pm
security even when we eat i know my heart is beating so fast. the gun lobby there like after my husband 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 of. refugees coming across the border they're coming 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
4:16 pm
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 we spoke with the president of the burmese written joe organization in the u.k. he believes the international community needs to act immediately. when attorney and crisis is growing and there is no food no shelter no medi thing you know what's happening right now against rolling up people in general if the diary killings involve whereby mr military is continuing with in ten days right now to protect the

4:18 pm
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 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 that 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
4:19 pm
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 but just an update on the story since we started talking really about the online store selling the nazi inspired clothing the highly controversial t. shirts and disappeared from the site. the founder of the red crescent humanitarian organization in yemen has died after being unable to get the medical treatment he desperately needed was a result of saudi arabia's blockade of his country dr abdullah senussi the way at
4:20 pm
the age of seventy six after a failed heart operation in the capital of war torn yemen he was prevented from traveling abroad for surgery on the hospital he was being treated and failed to find all of the equipment needed for the procedure in total the u.n. estimates that around twenty thousand people being denied potentially lifesaving health care because of restrictions imposed by on yemeni earth space they severely limit the amount of aid arriving each week. well come aisy salam zubiri busted the saudi government saying that it is directly responsible for his father's death. since saudi arabia's intervention in yemen civil war rights groups say it's or strikes have killed thousands of civilians with the humanitarian situation worsening in what was already the middle east per's country over seven
4:21 pm
million people are know starving hundreds of thousands of volts of being affected by a cholera outbreak a spokesperson for the international red cross told us that the aid organizations are struggling with the scale of the crisis and that would put a political solution is the only way forward. we speak of a country where we have just reached six hundred and seven thousand suspected cases of cording that has your job because the outbreak of our times unprecedented in the century in only four months we see the country well over have to release it has no access to clean water a country where seven million people wanted it even close to seventy where millions of women and children and through the minority so all these many didn't need it is good we know it best but we can not so good crisis or do you believe it's
4:22 pm
a good try all of those who are good in this country and that many artists can bring about a lessening of that day but something that we see in yemen kept. you know not easy but that's where the most there is no a. lot of. this. is that if it is outside the limit it has us up. here. just three weeks before germany's federal election chancellor merkel looks strong as ever according to reaction polls she got the better of her main rival martin schulz in a live t.v. debates on sunday night relations with turkey the european migrant crisis dominated
4:23 pm
the face to face. we always stressed that we need to find a common european solution according to the dublin convention they should stay where they first arrived and so they are not allowed to come to germany and those states couldn't manage the flow i think we should have asked our neighbors for help in dealing with the refugee crisis so i definitely wouldn't say that everything back in twenty fifteen was done right. i see this completely differently and i know that mr schultz also knows that this is not right in two thousand and fifteen we all knew that we've got a big problem here but still we all european states couldn't find any consensus on a solution to the refugee issue i acknowledge that top i think the decision was right. that our kids with their four hundred fifty and it's really hard now with the behavior of the turkish president is that who imprisons people systematically and if i become chancellor i will not only cancel the agreement with turkey but
4:24 pm
also stop talks on turkey joining the e.u. because turkey has crossed all red lines waves of refugees have been hitting i was not for a couple of days but for months. and felt that turkey is distancing itself from all democratic norms that are grads taking pace there would be nothing worse than if we said we're stopping unilaterally all turks with turkey on joining the e.u. and we don't have any majority for that in the european union or here bronson from the alternative for germany party thinks there's no candidate strong enough to challenge merkel. i wanted to show you a broad sheet from berlin and says it was more a duet than a duel both in agreement on many points and many or many questions it's a choice between skill and corrupt as if you ask me they don't see shultz as the ill turn it is they really don't i mean he had a furious start at the beginning of the year he was confirmed by at the party
4:25 pm
meeting with one hundred percent of all social democrats but ever since then it's being constantly going down the social democrats and berlin at least while the capital city of germany a down to twenty percent twenty percent it is not that machall is convincing everyone but there is no real major figure to challenge. i'll be back with more of the day's big news stories in iran half an hour's time also more of what's making headlines around the world on our twitter page updated by the minute thirty. bustle in the dubrovnik. fix travel destinations so it must be nice to live or is
