harvey you're watching r.t. international. the syrian army says that it has broken islamic states blockade of an air base in the city of daraa. the syrian army minister break the siege over the military airports here in de desert but let me fantasize something that civilians and syrians all over syria are so had be and they consider it as a moment of triumph on the way to defeat as a leader over this the this soil of the country if you are talking about the military operations state run media reported today that the military operation started by the forces into cemetery in the south was the don't result link with
forces holding the airplane of the airports. it's or to mention that this is of course the fairest meeting between these forces within nine months important information i have to mention that this comes only a few days off toward russia back forces managed to break the siege over the it was the initial areas here in their assault. some analysts and observers believe that this is would be and maintaining bones in the war against bolton's goal is to liberate all that is the initial areas that are just futile as it is then szell areas and districts in the hands of the extremists so his goal is to achieve as a ration and to retake this it is then chill areas again. one last thing to please let me say that civilians live is going to be much easier from now on and their suffering will and. the syrian military has been advancing rapidly in recent
months back in june islamic state controlled around quarter of the country last for three months around half of the territory's been retaken now government forces are on the verge of fully liberating the city of dairies or which is one of the last stronghold in syria we heard from a syrian army commander. the has your the syrian air force played the main role in locating the terrorist forces known as isis or 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 raca 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 them and meanwhile
a humanitarian convoy has reached the city for the first time says eisel three year siege was broken as it is there lined up for food water and other essential supplies. people in dairies or on 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. we almost died from hunger thing god the humanitarian aid to right we thought we were going to die. we cannot describe how relieved we are people were dying we would like to think they are me and pay tribute to them for lifting the siege charbel think god we have been safe from a terrible ordeal things will be different now but we want to thank the syrian army for lifting the blockade and freeing us from islamic state. russia is involved in the aid effort sending supplies into new liberated parts of the city for the past three years locals have depended on jobs and middle east analyst ahmad work after
all the latest advantage advances could spell the end for islamic state in syria. the entire episode of the syrian army of reaching the city of daters or breaking the siege and isis forces dies forces you know fleeing this base and you know mounting no real resistance is a huge turning point in a sense because suddenly this sort of fearsome enemy is you know fleeing a battlefield and is not you know able to. you know mount in a sense any credible how do you say morrall boosting operations the forces that have been separated in the airport from the main city about nine months ago are now liberated they've been through terrible ordeal themselves as well die forces are pretty much those that are the three main inside the city are pretty much trapped between the advancing syrian army forces and the river and so liberating the city
itself shouldn't really take much longer. russia's new ambassador to the united states is taken office at a time of strained relations between the countries and italy and told of presented his credentials to president trump in the white house on the samir khan reports now on the challenges the new ambassador will 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 antonov 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 and russia for your nation. to brief relations between the two countries to the relations between the united states and russia. international peace and progress as well as strategic 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 it was. told is that the current tensions are holding both russia and america. it's really difficult for me to understand why our 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 then 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 that 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'm not saying upright 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 economy that seems to be still not 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. germany's foreign minister has overtaken chancellor merkel as the country's most popular politician is a quick look at the country's 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. about.
gabrielle gave an exclusive interview to sharing his views on the upcoming election and sanctions against russia. by self i was very happy when two days ago the russian president vladimir putin more and publicly announced plans through its request to u.n. mission of course the conditions proposed by russia and not the same as the one actually we avoid trains proposed i consider it a good first step and what we need to do now is negotiate directly with the goal of the status in a cease fire and pulling back heavy weaponry and now we have an opportunity and do that and if we manage to implement its troops at least the political process of reconstructing done bassman start then we can start lifting sanctions against russia and i was criticized just if you want decision on ukraine but i still believe it's correct. by yeah 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 those who are turning against europe will weaken our country in the long running but. wasn't gobshite good navi i think russia is just as concerned about islamist terrorism as we are always and russia like us is concerned about the proliferation of nuclear weapons if north korea continues down this path and other small countries follow us 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. to turn to. blockade of counter appears to broken down riyadh announced that all dialogue has been suspended after a phone call between the qatari leader and the saudi crown prince earlier donald trump offered to help resolve the dispute despite having accused counter-response from terrorism 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 u.s. president made those remarks back in june when for countries diplomatic and transport links with the gulf nation saudi arabia egypt bahrain and the u.a.e. all accuse count are of supporting terrorism the us has its largest air base in the middle east in count our around eleven thousand american troops are stationed there it's weeks after the blockade president trump approved a fighter jet deal with doha with twelve billion dollars professor of politics at the university of tehran told us arms sales are a top priority for the us. trump really is completely discredited outside of the united states behaving in a provocative manner across the globe trump is very unpredictable and 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 objectives is to milk the countries in the persian gulf region there there are poor saying that the kuwaitis to buy more weapons to qatar used to buy more weapons think about amy's and the emirates and the saudis supply more weapons from the united states millions of people have been forced to flee their homes in florida as hurricane approaches to bring in the full story after this break.

a world war two memorial by the foreign ministry described it as an outrageous incident and part of an anti russian policy the red army monument start at the site of a mass grave of soviet soldiers for interest or interest . also recently barred roscoe from a project to build a memorial at a former nazi death camp the suburb or site operated for a year during the war around a quarter of a million jews were murdered there the camp itself was closed after a large uprising which was led by a soviet officer when six hundred prisoners tried to escape but only a few dozen of them lived to tell the tale poland also has an ongoing dispute with
germany demanding a trillion dollars worth of war damages and was originally knocking on berlin straw politicians believe that russia should also be paying reparations the polish deputy minister of justice is said that russia should pay compensation for the polish soviet war which ended in one thousand nine hundred twenty one but he made no mention of the red army's liberation of poland from nazi germany in one hundred forty five eastern europe unless the bruno address kate gave us his take. after in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine date destroyed quite a lot of monuments especially the monuments of general conyers crowd which surely beret some monuments were left and now would be i can see the finished joke if you ask people in on the street didn't call and what they think about dart dating it's your event alice but you know dad way media polish media and
government is working they don't talk about dural of this soviet army in deliberation of poland the problem is with new generation because the new generation were brought up in schools where they teach history do way i told you about poland would be very little very tightly without. border soviet union helped build into house after the second war. came behind me now you can see pictures from florida in the first signs of the arrival of hurricane officials are warning of a large scale catastrophe that the storm has weakened somewhat to a category three but it is expected to strengthen once again and it's already been one of the most powerful atlantic ocean hurricanes in recorded history as well as been battering cuba which lies around four hundred kilometers south of miami and there has left a trail of devastation. as
the eye of the storm heads for the southern us coast panic stricken citizens have started to flee the state on mass to main interstate highways have been clogged up with thousands of vehicles gas stations are running out of fields the traffic nightmare began on wednesday and has only continued to get worse. the florida governor has urged people in his path to leave but miami residents choosing to stay have taken precautions to escape damage such as boarding up their windows auntie's nicholas sanchez o'donovan has the latest. in the morning we see anybody on the street. something building here boarded up all
eight hundred seventy years since the city was founded once but celebrations have been held with special workshops exhibits and sports events well snow the city day ended with a ground fireworks display in the heart of the russian capital. riot of noise and color little of the night sky over the city with more than thirty thousand fire which used to mount moscow's big day and today the thousands of revelers standing in the city's streets to enjoy the spectacle. part of city day celebrations new parks also been opened so we are just told it's the first major new park in moscow for fifty years as part of the myth putin's initiative was built on the site of a vast soviet era hotel which was pulled down in the early two thousand the president visited the new facility so there was artie's
a libertarian as he went to see what's in store. would you believe that i'm in the middle of a typical russian forest well the trees around me will tell you that it is quite possible but actually i'm just a few hundred metres away from the domes on red square. in moscow's brand new park. the history of the place is really complicated for centuries this area was a bustling city water with narrow but busy streets until what is basically the core of moscow's old town was completely demolished in the soviet times what they build here was a real lot on the city landscape hotel. which was basically a massive box of concrete and steel then finally in two thousand and four they
realized the heart of moscow was no place for that kind of architecture and the moscow government ten years to come up with the brilliant idea let's just have a park here. so what are the highlights of that ad which is the size of about thirteen football fields as you walk through the park you'll find yourself in four different washing climate zones you've already seen the siberian forest there also the northern plains cold tundra plus wordsworth's warmer southern plains the steps in finally what's known as the wetlands and right now also you'll play starts definitely the favored spot for most people here it's called the soaring bridge which ironically won't take you to the other side of the river but you'll find yourself at moscow's new selfie central.
you all watching on t.v. international thanks for staying with us that's all for me for today do stick around though michael thomas will have the latest news headlines at the top of the . they're not ones out. on the flu is often not done one bite of snakes on the definitions and i'm by any. one seeking i need. to take in the equal sitting. ducks. and then you're going to bring. how we think i'm. not. going to let you know we're not beach. side is our. next guest feeling if one means i love this they. may learn this one tokyo found
it. does work with because did it because it didn't seem quite a cultural thing. but now china has taken the bold step here in the twenty first century and after they've built our economy on the backs of all american jobs all the american jobs to china and the middle class out of. like a hundred years ago fifty years ago thirty years ago before the world trade organization they were accepted into the average you know chinese person was surviving on like they were nation eighty but now they're all for a middle class but point mining.
i am. i. going to deny all right you probably know the stats by now we have more people in jail in this country per capita than anywhere else there are there are horrible were oppressive regimes out there run by the dude you tried to take indiana jones as hard in the temple of doom. look at the number of people in behind bars in our country and our like that that's what do you think that guy's got ten years for
stealing a candy bar that's not. our cops brutalised people on a daily basis and often kill more people in a month than other countries police kill in a decade they regularly abuse their power such as the video that actually went viral last week of a cop trying to demand a nurse illegally give him a blood sample from an unconscious suspect. when i go. there i have to. do it do not piss off nurses are right they have the animals they have the end of month. i find . it kind of always being nice to those growing out of us it's rule number one. so considering how out of control in horrific our policing is in this country the trumpet ministration gave it a good long think last week probably about thirty seconds. and they decided you
know what cops need more military weaponry yes trump is overturning the restrictions on the ten thirty three program which allows the pentagon to give surplus weapons of war to our local police and they still are trillions we spend on military there is lots of surplus in fact there are but there are more than two thousand on used abrams tanks sitting in the california desert because what are you going to do with the more you got i mean you know how it is you accidentally keyboarding extra tanks for jack aids because you thought the brochure instead spanx i thought it said. thank god i just thought i was doing it does it with a lot of abrams tanks. do so soon pentagon toys will yet again be in the hands of local police departments things like i am raps grenade launchers helicon salt rifles. and bayonets yes
that's because i've been on is you never know when the british are coming you never know you know what you know what are you nobody warned us about ricky gervais said and he's here and he's all over the t.v. screen is beggarly liberal yet really annoying kind of which you know we were reading seriously rand paul took note of the bayonets the last time the ten thirty three program was up for debate they list that twelve thousand bayonets have been given out. what purpose are bayonets being given out for. senator that's are available under the program i can't dance or what a local police force would need to be and i can even answer. well as well it's sad but actually the.
