a few kilometers of i'm still stronghold india. will look at the recent battles to retake the city for the first time in three years. and staying in the middle east r.t. speaks exclusively to the deputy chief of the lebanese military group hezbollah or any sponsored against terrorists in syria. there is one pm here in the russian capital and you're watching the international with me thank you aaron good to have you with us. north korea will not abandon its nuclear program as a country sees it as a viable vital part of the safety of his people that was the assessment of lot of may putin as he spoke to the media at the bric summit in china we cannot cross live to educate choose in sharman for is ok. what were the main points there president
putin brought up in his media conference. yes it was a very comprehensive post summit conference by president putin but of course one of those key points was about north korea and north korea he took her with countries like libya and iran where regime change had been opposed upon them and he drew a particularly poignant example in iraq where you said saddam hussein and his family had been taken out on the pretext of looking for weapons of mass destruction and that he just destroyed the country in doing so and he believes that the north korean people are looking at that particular example and fear that threat of regime change being imposed upon them and he thinks that is the reason why that they're hanging on and they don't want to give up when you clear tests. everyone remembers what happens with iraq and saddam hussein to stop the production of weapons of mass destruction regardless under the pretext of searching for those weapons saddam chauffeurs destroyed them alongside his family members. if you look
at either and they remember that in north korea do you think that just because of sanctions north korea will forget its policy of creating weapons of mass destruction to russia condemns those north korean actions we think they are a provocation then you can hear should cause all the koreans as i told one of my colleagues yesterday that i would rather eat grass than give up on their nuclear program unless they feel safe to to do. with president putin was pointing out that the u.s. response towards north korea has been sanctions are good as seems likely as well with yet more sanctions but president putin was a pains to point out that he feels that this is a dead end approach he doesn't back the new clear eyes of the potential in fact he and president xi of china i mean very much against it saying that he was unacceptable but he believes that north korea will carry on regardless they want the militarize ation they want the need to rise sation of the financial and therefore they'll carry on regardless of sanctions or president putin think that's their fault. it's
a waste of time you also find the illogical whereby russia and north korea have been put on the same sanctions this before and therefore it didn't work and now the us is saying that they want russia's help in trying to impose sanctions upon pyongyang president putin thinks this is logical that it won't work and that the only people that will really suffer will be the north korean people. but it's absurd to put rusher on the same sanctions list alongside north korea and then ask us to help impose sanctions against north korea. which sentients regime has hit a wall it is not effective to use but it is also to do with the humanitarian side of things do issues no matter what we do to north korea and north korea's actions will not change that millions of people who suffer. president putin reiterated his policy him out of president years well in that they believe the only way forward is through diplomacy and get around the negotiating table once again. ok thanks for that that's not escape partridge speaking to us live from a sharma. when
a crisis on the korean peninsula continuing to escalate 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 the u.n. security council met for urgent talks following north korea's announcement 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 to the crisis enough is enough i think enough is enough the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now time is short of action is required are countries patience is not unlimited the policy of strategic patience is over or is never something the united states wants the united states does not think conflict only the strongest sanctions will. able us to resolve this problem
through diplomacy all of our counterparts need to impose dissensions 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 artie's and there are two to explore is what other options are 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 well 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 strategy 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. i have to answer no to that i do not see a military solution for north korea i cannot accept it america's closest ally the u.k. is saying that even a conventional war could potentially 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 now dear tutor r.t. . president putin also touched on the issue of the russian consulates in america during his media conference he said moscow could take the u.s. to court over the situation concerning their diplomatic properties in san francisco new york and washington d.c. . because you sure our american counterparts didn't let russia use its property
it's a violation of our property rights only i will tell the foreign ministry to go to court and we'll see how well the highly praised system in the u.s. works. i remind you that on thursday washington demanded russia vacate its consulate in san francisco on two commercial entities this follows on from president trump's decision to extend sanctions against russia over alleged election meddling moscow responded by demanding the us narrow down his diplomatic staff in the country to the same number of people russia has in america. but these are the latest pictures from around the syrian city of dia as or where the heavy fighting between government forces and terrorists is ongoing the syrian army is now just a few kilometers away from one of the islamic states the last remaining strongholds in the country.
government divisions are now trying to reunite with the troops that have been trapped in the city since if fell to islamic state three years ago you can see here on the map that the syrian army with russian backing has made some significant gains over the past month advancing towards the besieged city. mckinney's you know i'm sure you know sort of what he's doing to the. dog that are without a job at the bottom. of
this hopefully the victory will be saying well how did your happiness today is indescribable what has been waiting for the army for a long time to make gold. i wish you had come earlier but people here are exhausted . and just the last day the army has gained eight kilometers securing strategic positions on the way russian fighter jets have been assisting with strikes destroying tanks and other to vehicles at least seventy terrorists have been killed before the pens are going to fish says syria still faces some major challenges. i resort today represents the last thirty six stronghold isis 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 has all but been destroyed it was an area a bridge if you will between mosul and and on to rocka where isis was able to concentrate it's probably the last strategic. stronghold of isis that will go however there's 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. another key player in the fight against i so is the lebanese political and the military has been is played a major role in battling islamic state fighters along the syria lebanon border in twenty seventy 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 the nusra front terrorists hizbollah has also proven to be an important player in combating 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. they spoke exclusively to hezbollah as deputy chief shaikh name cost of. 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 terrorists we have managed to build up a connection with hezbollah media group these are the our sole mountains 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 nineteen named carson is one of the most influential men not just in lebanon but in the whole region and he's 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 on the fight
against extremist rubble on the third but 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 carson in what is really a very rare and exclusive interview with one of the most senior members of the hezbollah group. yeah. 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. america to saudi america wants a regime change in syria so yeah that was the main goal of the war but when they failed to move us out through military means with the help of other arab countries
this shifted to a policy of non-confrontation president assad because they know the islamic state it poses as much of a threat of them as does the syrian people the world that. this is not an imaginary president which is a real and highly. and the choice of the syrian people who are has the project to remove president assad as a not against the whole of syria which we cannot accept. the seriously reelected president assad as the legitimate of the. this is a matter of choice for the syrian people and not about our foreign powers to not go . the founder of the red crescent in yemen has died in hospital in the capital city of sun our he was unable to receive vital treatment as a result of saudi arabia's blockade of the country dr abdullah alchemies the passed away at the age of seventy six after
a failed heart operation he was prevented from travelling abroad for surgery and local hospitals lack the equipment needed to save his life a spokesperson for the red cross told is that he died at the same way as millions of others in yemen. first of all i would like to see it when we have. the road cross and red crescent that don't miss us and then you who during his her life should complete me. and he died indeed. it is in reason millions of. us we speak it is. all. that is for going to. have no access to health care. 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 communities son
zubair believes the saudi government is directly responsible for his father's death . well saudi warplanes have been bombarding yemen since march twenty fifth since then thousands of civilians have died even before the conflicts in 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 longer jack meant again told as aid groups are unable to cope with the situation. we speak of a country where we have just reached six hundred and seven thousand suspected cases of cording that has your job recording audio draco in times unprecedented in just century in only four months we still have the country were over have the relation has no access to clean water a country where seven million people wanting to just be close to study where millions of women and children see through the minority so many do in
egypt is going to go it best but we not so good the crisis or you believe it's a good for all of those who work in good and use concrete and there are many parties in bringing about a list of the day but something that. the when the. matter. is that if it is outside the limited doesn't. care. where northern italy is now tackling a refugee and flux coming from other european countries we've got more on that after this break. it's.
to look for common ground. welcome back now southern italy has been one of the main entry points for migrants arriving in europe since the humanitarian crisis began back in twenty fourteen however now northern parts of the country are also seeing an influx of migrants coming from neighboring european states several more as of northern italian cities have written a letter to italy's interior ministry claiming that ninety percent of the refugees are not fleeing war but are arriving from other e.u. countries which have already rejected their asylum applications one man who we spoke to says it's down to the lack of a unified policy. these people arrive you need something from northern europe
they're not returning to a sleep you're entering for the first time and border the afghans and pakistanis from coming to it's not because they've been rejected by countries not. keeping track of asylum seekers but unfortunately there was no unified policy it makes no sense for asylum seekers to be accepted but it's only when germany has already rejected their claim this is not about free movement across that it is a problem of the here and snow european policy we need to find a common strategy. now every year tens of thousands of migrants are ordered to leave the e.u. but in two thousand and fifteen only thirty six percent of them were sent back to their home countries all to the country from which they travel to the european union meanwhile finland or storage fees they 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 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 people and injured several in the southern finnish city of turku while one of the london bridge attackers had his asylum claim rejected back in two thousand and nine but attack left eight dead in june and back in april a failed asylum seeker used a truck to hit crown to the swedish capital claiming five lives and one of europe's deadliest attacks saw a christmas market targeted in berlin twelve people were killed again the atrocity was carried out by a migrants where we had the views of a professor of modern european history who says that europe needs to stand together . migrants coming forward and all just bantering back and forth with all the border
which is all so yeah and they're coming from the solve so this situation is getting worse there is no balance between counters cept the migrants and. don't want to migrants at all and there is a lack of a common policy of the european union the zero if there is a common goal is not to yell implement the we have a case of. migrants that they say we should. and shouldn't back the wall i fear there will be some acts of violence the way shown that we are at the bottom and there is the mind of those what the story tells when there is a minority which is not sort of. the. ok very good news just coming in this hour from near the russian capital now where a student has opened fire at a school and he used smoke grenades four people were injured as they reportedly tried to jump from windows to escape the attacker has now been arrested on the
school evacuated the motive for the shooting guess still unknown however it's believed there was a conflict between this aspect and the teacher spoken so one of the students at the school says it's because of its own money this guy is a very reserved person study really. their only goal is to keep contact through. signing reduce the track no one believed him. well to get in touch and share your thoughts on the day stories by following us on facebook and twitter my colleague andrew farmer will be with you in about thirty minutes with the headlines. it was when they all know why me but there was when i get back into work i would
have been ok maybe naive then they. are more of them i tried to make them a way what i was going to riyadh out on them as well as for us to loudly love the. jihadist body of the poem or get his body it would point the love up this is the idea but this it again i just feel poky what it can be applied to young looking the police will. be here when i get in that nigger and organized sport better so you don't see and everybody everybody's iscar see seymour hoffman all the bells wanna. be your now me yes your that be there they were buddies of the good about me. i'm going to sue. they're going to get books. just outside. just so sad much kids. get to some muscle fishes i'm used to use a little on the cement she wanna be less combine yes.
musician pushing caucus honest to do such a. rap. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself in taking your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry if only i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question or arc. i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave the funeral the same
as one enters mind it's consumed with this one to. speak as there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. stay alive stayin alive whoa whoa whoa whoa stayin along. what about the one nine hundred seventy. s. that's a good question because it's our first headline the tweet from catarina fake reads what happened in the nineteen seventy s. she is the co-founder of flicker so you would think she is quite a clever woman she shows this chart the red line is the good producing workers the
wages of goods producing workers and the orange line going up is their major sector productivity productivity as you can see is rising rising rising but something happened she said in the mid seventy's if you zoom in on her chart i was trying to do that try to zoom in on a piece of paper and it doesn't work yeah that's right you're part of the i phone generation lost off an action to reality now you tried as the basis of paper in ways that are impossibilities. well so that is about one nine hundred seventy two of course from august one nine hundred seventy one i think is the reason why you see the divorce between wages and productivity usually when productivity went up you know you're producing more for the same amount of work or time or effort put into the product and you know people used to share.
