or one of the last i saw strongholds in syria we spoke to a syrian army commander about how this military success is possible. the syrian air force played the main role in locating the terrorist forces known as i saw their identify their ammunition warehouses and listened in to meetings in which the terrorists planned attacks inside and around their resort with the help of russian airpower the syrian air force struck these places ahead of the arrival of syrian government troops this weekend isis ability to attack and to call in reinforcements from rocka and palmira syrian forces fought fierce battles the terrorists had planted improvised explosive devices and car bombs all around trying to prevent the army from entering the city in the end the syrian army gained a great deal of momentum and was able to connect there is or with other territories it has gained. meanwhile a humanitarian convoy has reached the city for the first time since i saw it was
broken residents king water and other vital supplies and we managed to speak to someone. people in there is all in the brink of starvation we were desperate for food and water to reach the city that was all we wanted and thank god help has now arrived. almost died from hunger thing god the humanitarian aid the right we thought we were going to die. but we cannot describe how relieved we are people were dying we would like to think the army and pay tribute to them for lifting the siege. russia also joined the humanitarian efforts by sending its convoys to the newly liberated parts of the city for the past three years locals have depended on air drops on a military airfield controlled by one of the syrian army's brigades local journalist john ameritrade caught up with that brigade which has now joined the major assault on myself. i am a just a three kilometers away from the one hundred thirty seven degree gate i am
a just less than one kilometer of all these little gatherings in this imaginary area be just behind that building now the residual area of data storage is just about seven hundred meters it's more than she got some medical equipment and other food supplies have just entered the city here i was again the next i did meet is the military all reports i'm sure that you're hearing the evidence in the sky now this side of me that there is the military airborne today result it's just a few kilometers and also it is witnessing some juicy clashes between the syrian army and isel militants. russia's new ambassador to the u.s. has taken office signed it comes at a time of strained relations between the countries anatoly on top of has already met with donald trump during the meeting the ambassador formally presented his
credentials to the american president a washington correspondent samir a con explains what challenges the new blockbuster is likely to face. well a much anticipated meeting between russia's recently appointed ambassador to the u.s. and u.s. president donald trump has taken place and to nobs predecessor was constantly targeted by the western media portrayed in a negative light over a number of allegations given the controversy surrounding the previous diplomat there are now many speculations around the new figure and as with all u.s. russia meetings this one also attracted media attention especially amid rising diplomatic tensions antonov in particular expressed russia's eagerness to normalize relations with washington russian. relations between the two countries the relations between the united states and russia.
international peace and progress as well as stability according to the diplomat the meeting took place in a warm and constructive atmosphere commenting on the meeting the ambassador said that moscow is ready to take concrete steps to improve relations with washington and despite the ongoing diplomatic spat between the countries that saw us russia relations sink to one of the lowest points in history and said he believes the situation is mendable provided there is enough will to cast aside political differences and work together now this is all quite a positive shift from the rhetoric we've been hearing from both sides lately and it seems that improve relations between the two countries seems even more promising considering the new russian ambassador was actually a key member of the team that worked on the two thousand and ten new start bilateral nuclear arms reduction agreement a lack of dialogue on the possibility of escalation of tension that would benefit neither russia nor america that's according to political analyst charles will tell
. it's really you know difficult for me to understand why are either side is going down this path i mean you know we could quibble and say you know in terms of our population we have a larger population that you could come back and say well we have larger territory and whatever but i mean this is really you know i have two children and a case occasionally when they would fight over small problems and or great opportunities you know i would try to teach them a lesson or two i must say i try to regard the united states and russia as children but you know with all the problems we face around the world in particular our joint problem with radical islamic terrorism. and i caught i mean it seems to be still that finding its full potential like you go on and on and on with all those problems with with so many shared interests i fail to see the wisdom of going down this path. jimmie's foreign minister. to the top of the latest approval ratings in the country. despite the fact is
expressed his reluctance to become the chancellor of germany goes to the polls in two weeks of the country's current favorite. i was close to being arrested in the wrong china turkey and saudi arabia because i visited those countries i like to think i'd be able to refrain from triggering any foreign policy crises of my words.
after becoming the country's foreign minister gabriele stepped down as leader of the social democratic politics although he still remains one of its members the polish is the closest rival to the ruling christian democrats headed by chancellor merkel in an exclusive interview gabriele told us his view on the upcoming elections and on sanctions targeting russia. voice of i was very happy when two days ago the russian president vladimir putin publicly announced plans to request a u.n. mission of course the conditions proposed by russia are not the same as the ones we all ukrainians proposed but i consider it a good first step and what we need to do now is negotiate with the goal of the stablish in a cease fire and pulling back heavy weaponry and now we have an opportunity to do that and if we manage to implement the truce at least the political process of reconstructing donbass may start then we can start lifting sanctions against russia
and i was criticized yesterday for my position on ukraine but i still believe it's correct. by i want people to vote in germany's interests and in their own interests we want this country to prosper and that's possible only within a united europe that those who are turning against europe will weaken our country in the long run but. i think russia is just as concerned about islamist terrorism as we are and russia like us is concerned about the proliferation of nuclear weapons if north korea continues down this path and others more countries follow we will want the same thing as russia arms control nucular disarmament and measures to ensure peace establish trust and defeat islamist terrorism our countries have plenty of shared interests. at all of the thief football world cup trophy has begun at last luzhniki stadium ahead

as long as you run support still the intel international community should say to run this is not acceptable you should stop firing on this ng still from our perspective baseless ballots hamas. will be doing the place but this is something that i believe israel should see to good or we drop of course we do and i did states the states and to say ok it's not just you know small easily problem. welcome back to the program saudi arabia has suspended all dialogue with qatar to qatari media were accused of misreporting phone conversations between the amman of qatar and saudi arabia's defense minister donald trump the gulf states to unite
against iran and expressed his willingness to act as a mediator between doha in riyadh the us president alleged that could tall was a sponsor of of tyrus. if i can help mediate between creator and in particular the u.a.e. and saudi arabia i would be willing to do so the nation of qatar unfortunately has a storage leap in a funder of terrorism at a very high level donald trump made those remarks back in june when four countries in the region first cut diplomatic and transport links with the gulf nation saudi arabia egypt bahrain and qatar of supporting terrorism the us has its largest air base in the middle east and qatar around eleven thousand american troops are stationed there just weeks after the blockade president trying to prove the vast find to deal with doha with twelve billion dollars terror on university politics professor side mohammad marandi believes the u.s.
just wants to boost calm sales to the region trump really is completely discredited outside of the united states behaving in a provocative manner across the globe from is very unpredictable so. therefore it's very difficult to say what he's up to and therefore what the position of the united states will be in the future but obviously one of his our objectives is to milk the countries in the persian gulf region there they're poor seeing that the kuwaitis to buy more weapons that are used to buy more weapons me about amy's and the emirate of the saudi supply more weapons from the united states. and around three hundred thousand people have fled the country of myanmar for the last two weeks as a result of the violence against the country's persecuted religious minority that's according to the new think is from the united nations the organization claims the die a situation in the region is getting worse worse and. i
potations of the country's defacto leader. she is suffering because of the alleged genocide of the russian jet minority she previously on global respect for promoting democracy in the country and even won the nobel peace prize for her nonviolent advocacy for human rights but with the situation concerning grandma's ranjan muslim minority escalating activists are now calling on sons were taken stripped of her prize however the organization that made the award says the prize cannot be revoked under its rules as a look at how the prestigious award can sometimes be motivated politically. the noble peace prize is supposed to honor those who have done the most for fraternity between nations the abolition of standing armies and the promotion of peace that's how alfred noble envisioned it more than a century ago but the record of some prize winners and nominees has sometimes been juba's in two thousand and nine the newly elected. u.s.
president barack obama won the award despite his campaign promises the american military were actually at war for every year of his eight year term air strikes a raid were held in seven countries and in twenty sixteen alone over twenty six thousand bombs were dropped by the u.s. air force years later a former noble prize secretary even admitted to his frustration over obama's award the prize did not have the positive effect for obama they were might have hoped his passion in the u.s. another contentious choices the european union the bloc was rewarded with a nobel prize in twenty twelve for quote six decades of contributions to the advancement of peace and reconciliation democracy and human rights in europe the same year europe saw spike in terror attacks two hundred nineteen happened that year in the e.u. member states also in twenty twelve some european countries were engulfed in mass
protests against the sterett in measures the bloc had imposed the same year the syrian rescue group the white helmet was nominated for the award that's despite its members being alongside al nasra terrorists and even at execution sites the white helmet reputation was also in question after it stays the fake risk you video taking part in a so-called money can challenge. peace prize has you know historically sometimes been a political tool the committee that controls the nobel peace prize nominations and they select sometimes do it because they are hopeful for they are trying to push an agenda so with obama for example it was only about ten months into his presidency when they gave him the nobel peace prize he hasn't had a chance to even set up as desk at that point if you look at some of the people that chose one of the ones we mentioned today on song suchi the reason why she's deserve the prize is she says she worked for years and years in
a nonviolent way to change a country i don't think her actions to today or that of a nobel peace prize winner but i certainly don't think that you should take the prize away. these are all the pictures from florida showing the first signs of the arrival of hurricane officials are warning of a large scale catastrophe the storm has weakened somewhat to a category three as expected to strengthen again it's already been one of the most powerful atlanta question hurricanes in the quarter to history it's also been battered which lies about four hundred kilometers south of miami leaving a trail of devastation in its wake.
