washington calls for the toughest possible measures against north korea saying the country is begging for war fast while russia and china seek to deescalate tensions on the peninsula. north korea crisis has been one of the main talking points for the ninth annual brics summit in china we'll bring you all the latest from there. and the syrian army backed by russia moves to within a few kilometers of i still strong hold india as your we look at the recent battles to retake this city for the first time in three years.
there it's eight am here in the russian capital and you're watching international with me they care and good to have you with us. the u.s. envoy to the united nations says diplomacy is failing with north korea after pyongyang conducted its largest ever nuclear test on sunday but u.n. security council met for urgent talks following north korea's and now it's meant that it had conducted a controlled hydrogen bomb explosion the impact of which triggered an earthquake in the region but so far it seems the united nations has been unable to come up with an alternative or new solution for the crisis in. the morning i must say enough is enough i think enough is enough the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now. time is short action is required the world is on
notice our country's patience is not unlimited the policy of strategic patience is over or is never something the united states wants we don't want it now the united states does not think conflict in fact we seek to avoid it only the strongest sanctions will enable us to resolve this problem through diplomacy all of our counterparts need to impose dissensions that we will defend our allies and our territory the united states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies the u.s. has been threatening military action for weeks now and the rhetoric has been growing even stronger ever since tribe promised to respond to north korea with fire and fury thankfully it doesn't go beyond this exchange of threats russia and china however in contrast have asked for a dialogue with north korea but as soon as it is so there's little that
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 an initiative for the denuclearization of the korean peninsula it is practical and feasible and aimed at easing the tensions and preventing further escalation. 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 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 u.s. decides that threats and sanctions are counterproductive to the situation if they ever do well latest launches in calls from south korea's military chief looking to boost the peninsula's defense but the redeployment of american nuclear weapons washington has agreed with seoul for the need to maximize pressure on pyongyang and said that president trump approved the sale of millions of dollars worth of weapons to herself but political analysts rennick the countries shouldn't be gambling with their security when it comes to north korea. the first rule of any negotiation is never bark your rival your opponent into a corner things become predictable and uncontrollable them however. the north
koreans are not stupid they pull out they do throw the hand they do play of our hand well and they played strong this is unchartered territory for everyone i'm not sure we need any more gambling i think we need cool heads and let's remember collaboration is the new leader at this moment we've got the lone wolf of north korea. the rest of everyone else needs to be aligned and huntin projects it's through that alignment through that collaboration then we can see a change in circumstance what i'm hoping what i think we'll see is a coming together of russia china united nations and common sense will prevail. and with that in mind arty's new directs you to explore as the options on the table for donald trump. the u.s. and north korea stuck in a behavioral rut neither seem willing to back down it looks so bad you might think a third world war was imminent but surely no one wants that so how does the world tackle north korea what are the options while option number one twitter war.
president trump has been dropping twitter bombs on pretty every occasion saying pyongyang is looking for trouble and threatening locked unloaded military solutions and south korea and i should point out that it's a u.s. ally is caught in the rhetorical crossfire question is how effective are these twitter bombs there's no reaction except from kim parading more of his ballistic missiles and even saying he now has a hydrogen bomb on to the next to the option number two. trade wars and sanctions the u.s. and u.n. security council have hit north korea with sanctions over and over again since two thousand and six and guess what they don't seem to care and to add more pressure the u.s. has been hinting at seizing all trade with any country that continues to do business with them the united states will look at every country that does business with north korea as a country that is giving aid to their reckless and dangerous nuclear intentions but
how realistic would this be that means that approximately eighty countries would be affected and that's not to mention the economic consequences for the u.s. itself option three. the scariest of all which still exists actual all out war the us are the only party openly threatening a military response at the moment and it looks like they could find themselves alone in this fight as their leaders have been clear about not wanting to go down this road. you are i have to answer no to that i do not see a military solution for north korea i cannot accept it america's ally the u.k. is saying that even a conventional war could. eventually wipe out the korean peninsula we keep hearing about the need for diplomatic solutions yet we hardly see any progress to resolve the deadlock so where are we now back at the beginning it seems but surely there should be no limit on diplomatic efforts. r.t.
. syrian government forces are now just a few kilometers away from the city of diego resort one of islamic states last remaining strongholds in the country and you can see it here on the map the syrian army with russian backing has made some significant gains over the past month of violence thing towards the besieged city. mckinney the old times you know you. are the lord of the job of the law.
you know how to get your mother to still leave what have been me going to do me jewish museum or we shall go into your. just the last few days the last one day to government forces have gained eight kilometers securing strategic positions on the way russian fighter jets have been assisting with strikes destroying tanks and other on the vehicles at least seventeen terrorists have been killed but former pentagon official michael maloof says the syrian army still faces some major challenges. i resort today represents the last straw on hold i says will dissipate into other areas they won't have a cohesive strategic region and in fact they considered it so important because
they were put in some of their best fighters and heavy equipment into the area which is all been destroyed it was an area of bridge if you will between mosul and on to iraq where isis was able to concentrate is probably the last strategic. stronghold of isis that will go however there is another problem that's going to be developing the united states along with the help of the kurds under the syrian democratic forces wants to is trying to occupy the same area because of the oil reserves that are there the problem is only going to be beginning in terms of. the future or now another operation to remove i so from mr facto capital of rock in syria is being led by u.s. backed rebel forces yesterday washington announced the clearance of the old city of record calling it a milestone that operation began back in june but since then there have been
a number of humanitarian groups concerned over the civilian situation there in august alone the coalition carried out over one thousand strikes and more than one hundred fifty civilians were killed in fixed rate that's according to the united nations thousands more are still trapped inside suffering severe water and food shortages another key player in the fight against i still is the lebanese political and military group hezbollah on its plate and major role in battling islamic state fighters along with syria syria lebanon border in twenty seventeen. hizbollah lebanon's shia military and political organization was founded with the help of iran back in one nine hundred eighty two during these really occupation of lebanon since the beginning of the syrian civil war the group has been deeply involved in fighting against various rebel factions including our nusra front terrorists
hizbollah has also proven to be an important player in islamic state in syria the group has a strong anti western stance and has been listed as a terror organization by the us the european union and most arab league countries are. exclusively to hezbollah as deputy chief shaikh name catherine. following my previous trip to lebanon in order to follow the hezbollah group to the arsehole mountains where they had cleared out the area from the al nasra terrorists we have managed to build up a connection with hezbollah media group these are the mountains in the east of lebanon it's the latest scene of the victory of hezbollah hezbollah managed to capture this cave which was used by terrorists as a base and that led to us being given a unique opportunity to interview their deputy leader name them
carson is one of the most influential men not just in lebanon but in the whole region and he is a man who is very well guarded and it's very difficult to secure an interview with somebody of his stature but we managed to do so. and when we went to interview him in beirut. we had a very long security procedure to go through we had to meet at a certain location in the capital we then were told to leave all of our telephones and our electronic equipment before being escorted to another location where the interview took place we also asked about the ongoing. conflict in syria the fight against extremist rubble and hezbollah they've been at the front of every battle they've been fighting against isis not just here in lebanon but also of course across syria so many topics touched upon but between myself and share in what
is really a very rare and exclusive interview with one of the most senior members of the hezbollah group. the west wants to see middle east divided into weak countries so you can control everything the americans wanted to use islamic state against syria but then this monster turned against america so now they have no choice but to confront. saudi america wants a regime change in syria was the main goal of the war but when they failed to move through military means with a lot of other countries this shifted to a policy of non-conference of president assad because they know. there's as much of a threat one of them as does the syrian people and the world that.
there's not an imaginary president which is a real and highly sector and the choice of the syrian people has any project to move president assad as a not against the whole of syria which we cannot accept. the seriously reelected president assad as the legitimate had of the. this is a matter of choice for the syrian people foreign powers to negotiate. when northern italy is now tottering a refugee influx coming from other european countries become more on the story after this short break. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around
corporations corporations from washington to washington controls the media the media. voters elected businessmen to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. here's what people have been saying about rejected and that it was your position it is full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what it was a really packs a punch oh yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than food the things that i see people you've never heard of love or down to the night i'm president of the world bank so very. seriously send us an email.
come back seven italy has been one of the main entry points to migrants arriving in europe since the humanitarian crisis began in twenty fourteen however now northern parts of the country are also seeing an influx of my clients coming from neighboring european states. several mazz of northern italian cities have written a letter to the italy's interior ministry claiming that ninety percent of the refugees are not fleeing war but are arriving from countries which have already rejected their asylum applications one man who we spoke to says this is been made possible due to the lack of a unified policy. these people arriving in italy from northern europe they're not returning to a sleeper to entering for the first time and border afghans and pakistanis from coming to its legs not being rejected by countries and. keeping track of asylum
seekers but unfortunately there is no unified policy it makes no sense for asylum seekers. in germany is already rejected. this is not about removing to cross is a problem of european policy we need to find a common strategy. every year tens of thousands of migrants are ordered to leave the e.u. but in twenty fifteen only thirty six percent of them are sent back to their home countries or to the country from which they travel to the european union meanwhile finland's authorizes say they've lost track of more than five thousand migrants german officials report as many as one hundred thirty thousand migrants missing and about ten thousand asylum applications were discontinued in austria because the applicants could no longer be found or that this has been a major cause for concern in europe and further afield with several failed asylum
seekers responsible for a number of major terror attacks recently a man killed two and injured several people in the southern finnish city of turku a stabbing attack or one of the london bridge attackers had his asylum claim rejected back in two thousand and nine this is tight left eight dead back in june in april a truck hit crowds in the swedish capital claiming five lives the man behind the attack had his asylum application rejected as well and one of the deadliest attacks in europe recently truck ramming a crowd at a christmas market in berlin which left twelve people dead was also performed by an asylum seeker who was denied refuge a professor of early modern european history who we spoke to says that the european union badly lacks the unified strategy on migrants. migrants coming from the north just bunch in britain for the northern border which is also euro and coming
from the solve so this is getting worse there is no balance. in mark ronson around you don't want to mine all and there is a lack of comment. or if there is a common goal is not the we have. my ground so they say we should. and shouldn't go after wall i fear. the bottom and there is the mind and that's what the story when there is a minority which is not. so. now the founder of the red crescent in yemen has died in hospital in the capital city of sana'a he was unable to receive vital treatment as a result of saudi arabia's blockade of the country dr abdullah. t.c.
passed away at the age of seventy six after a failed heart operation he was prevented from travelling abroad for surgery and local hospitals lacked the equipment needed to save his life in total the un estimates that around twenty thousand people have now been denied crucial health care due to the saudi bombing campaign and blockade. archimedes' son as the believes this saudi government is directly responsible for his father's death saudi warplanes have been bombarding yemen since march twenty fifth day and since then thousands of civilians have died even before the conflict yemen was the poorest country in the middle east and now an estimated seven million people are starving while hundreds of thousands have been affected by a cholera outbreak a spokesperson for the red cross told us that aid groups are unable to cope with the situation. we speak of
a country where we have just reached that six hundred and seven thousand suspected cases of kordic that is your job recording audio draco in times unprecedented in the century in only four months we see the country well over half the relation has no access to clean water a country where seven million people wanted it even close to seventy where millions of women and children. through the minority so many didn't even she's going to go it best but we can not so good the crisis or your ability to distinguish from all of those who are good and disc only and that many artists can bring about a lessening of the day but something that you meant. there was no but it is not a joke i think it. is that if you put a sound card is the limit it has us up to. the mike.
there are. a lot of back in about thirty minutes with the top headlines and the latest on the final day of the brick summits being held in china including a live press conference from the russian president vladimir putin stay tuned for that. down at once up close enough lives up to let down one might have been a tough the definitions enough i'm back any. one seeking i need a south. taking the equal sitting.
down to get the thing and then you get really free. only think i. might not be. good enough to let it be. such that. this debt ceiling is one thing i love this thing that the deep may learn to feel this one tokyo find it is going to go. like. this look was because did a piece of dancing cattle culture fishing from the premise.
make its manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. in the final merry go round me the one percent. with no middle of the room sick. dubrovnik deceptively peaceful. venice it's peaceful hours are numbered. bossa luna is also stealing itself in the early morning. three unique cities in europe with the skidding woods all the time.
everything but yes you know what i'm that benny hill. there's so many things that you put it yeah. i did a said she didn't like the quotes but quickly and it's going to with colons of tourists every day the whole year round the peak season in some cities in europe results in the state of emergency. at all the ticket on official press that became national get out because of this and also choco the share on national going to. basically say something. local residents suffer from the mass of this it is they feel pushed out robbed of their own city how to read by noise and simply swamped by phone to visit. god.
there. you. go tourism is going beyond it's not just in venice but the locals are not giving up without a fight. it's there for the. moment. to show us how bob made me feel. like. the. city tourism in europe is booming there's never the fool fuel by aggressive price dumping budget flights and the sharing economy a trend which office cheap accommodation. all the authorities dealing with the onslaught in one post or you could get i'm not sure we could find you know because i mean these are going to nationals get from. combining claim up at an official

of gambling with few winners and many lose. the bustle and they to destruct one swarm of boss alone as tourist and shabbiest areas the photographer he sends for now knew the place when it was still home to three thousand fishermen. bustling nato was always a workers' district which attracted people from outside looking for work so strangers are actually nothing new but in the meantime things have gone too far for the fifteen thousand inhabitants of bustling nato the sense for understands his neighbors concern. better i'm not out for a festival offer for a good marriage no more name and cash i mean even more of a purpose than to know i need to raise him and tear up high to how he knew the.
