for the top stories of the day the. north korean media says the country's leader. to redouble their efforts to further develop nuclear capabilities. to the united nations said it was quote begging for war. warnings from washington did not seem to put the north. enough is enough i think enough is enough the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now time is short action is required our country's 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 enable 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 this comes as washington also says it will continue to deploy troops and weapons to the korean peninsula aircraft carrier strike group and team missile ships as well as fighter jets on the helicopters will be dispatched to south korea washington and seoul the reportedly preparing to hold yet more military drills. meanwhile other regional players like russia and china. over north korea had an emergency un security council meeting that was on monday moscow and beijing proposed what's being called a double freeze initiative under the plan and north korea would stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests and in return america and south korea would stop their joint military exercises however the u.s.
dismissed the proposal calling it insulting and washington there was a correspondent who stands to gain from an escalating situation on. the north korean threat is something we hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials but the statements. and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for. they will be met with fire fury the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now this may not get away with what he's doing lately and the urgency is still strong the u.s. is rolling out a range of american made weapons to save the day on offer for remaining rocket launchers for the u.s. missile defense system korea also increased amounts of highly sophisticated military equipment which trump this kindly allowing both korea and japan to purchase and the infamously troubled the f. thirty five fighter jets also be added to that i think bonus but not free of course
but look forget that north korea is by no means the only threat to global security and america for decades iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and threatening the region and causing so much by a lintz all nations of its most work together to isolate and all of those attacks are music to the ears of saudi arabia an american ally and fellow detractor of iran so of course riyadh was all too ready to find one hundred ten billion dollar defense deal with neighboring qatar also agreed to buy over twenty one billion. dollars' worth of american military hardware now trying to approach the conflict deftly pragmatic make a quick buck if you can right and clearly this guy can sell anything even managed to find a way to been continuing america's sixteen year long war in afghanistan as the prime minister of afghanistan has promised we are going to participate in economic development to help defray the cost of this war to us hey if you can't
solve the problem see if you can at least turn a healthy profit instead of i'm a businessman that's what i'm supposed to do that's what i'm supposed to do. i think a lot of people project on the behavior of the united states maybe of other countries that it's all about business it's all about making money for the arms manufacturers in the plane manufacturers and so forth the people who make missiles the militarization of the policy of the using military threats and military force is the only item in our tool kit his son how become so ingrained in their mentality they really don't consider other alternatives you have people who believe that the united states is and must be the global hedge fund that every solution must be solved by a dick top from washington and whatever force and threats are necessary to achieve that end will be employed. the syrian army has secured a milestone victory in the war against islamic state broke the three year long

a number of months before the syrian government really control over the whole of syria. this week so angry reaction to the closure of russian diplomatic compounds in the united states condemned the way in which they were searched immediately after the premises were vacated a video of men at the building ripping up the flooring was posted on the russian foreign ministry facebook page or shortly after personnel had left the diplomatic compound of a search was conducted by f.b.i. offices. now in the latest development in the ongoing diplomatic spot the u.s. ordered russia to close three diplomatic premises in forty eight hours immediately after the eviction u.s. officers searched the san francisco consulate and trade missions in new york and washington responds to the seizure and searches of property russian president vladimir putin the russian foreign ministry to take legal action. now at the u.s.
state department spokesperson heather knew a taste of of russia related questions that came off she described the searches of the russian consulate in san francisco as quote touring while being grilled she suggested that some of the journalists present sounded like they were working for this channel. that is what's your name let's move on move on to something else if you still consider that sovereign russian property or were those property searched because there was a concern that they were being used for intelligence purposes which would be like a different issue i'm just not going to get and i don't let it i'm so let's move on to something else here. or any other country u.s. missions that. the cheated good search. you know what i don't know if you are working for today or what but i remember. on a this week a lot of my putin said russia would take legal action over the seizure of the consulate the u.s.
state department responded to that as well. are you sure our american counterparts didn't let russia use its privacy it's a violation of property rights i will tell the foreign ministry to go to cool to see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the us were people in the united states need to get over this anti russia hysteria and that's what it is that's being. by the media here and americans need to call for more friendly and constructive relations with russia it's my firm opinion that russia all along has want to friendly relations has wanted the us as a partner and there's no reason that we should reject that all of brands that i think russia's been holding out for us entering that property was a violation of the vienna conventions. and i don't know where it's going to and i do get the sense from russia that they do not want to escalate what are the weekly here analogy international lots of stories waiting for you in just
a moment here on the program including what a rough week it's been for. the on the campaign trail we'll do that story in a moment. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around quite. perforations from washington to washington post media the media. voters elect the president to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before.
put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to present . to the press this is what. i'm interested in the water. sunday morning in moscow thanks for joining us. been facing a rough week both in and out of parliament with just two weeks to go before the federal election she's been out on the campaign trail trying to drum up support with what appears to be mixed success.
booed by demonstrators during a rally on wednesday the day before one protester threw tomatoes at her during a similar event the chancellor has criticized those causing disruption but this week it wasn't just clothes who got in the way you have colds speeches she was also recently interrupted by her main rival from the social democratic party while addressing parliament and will take credit for their work but she didn't hesitate to remind those president who's really in charge. that's the key but i think it's sad when. the few months you loose. you know. as soon. as. i was i. think i was really you know sad out. there when you inspect it when she's in parliament it's nice
story said that she was when i was just two weeks before the country goes to the polls to elect the country's parliament voting intentions show merkel's ruling christian democrats way ahead of her social democrat rivals the left wing party d. link is in third place with the free democrats behind them as is the alternative for germany a euro skeptic party that's expected to make its first gains in parliament. peter all of us now taking a closer look at who will be the real contenders in this election. with most pundits already calling this election a win. there isn't a great deal of intrigue that. has been the battle for third place and who will perhaps be the kingmaker in the next coalition government the smaller parties in germany providing.
long. amount of. time. and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the political scene. for germany it looks like they will enter a pall of it. and they run on a message against. policy and what they see is the islam isolation of the country even drafted in one of the odd agencies that helped promote trump in his
campaign and not seen them produce some role the provocative post is. a. good alternative for germany it's not going to be faults of any coalition with. the chancellor and said so repeatedly likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic. liberal pro-business traditional allies. kristie. but this time around they call it something of an added benefit they charismatic and photogenic leader has appeared front and center however he does appear to have lifted so of his migration policy right out of the alternative think jodi playbook if these prevails refugees must return prisoners
such human rights to choose a new place in the world i'm not being harsh this is realism speaking she told form a dot com entrepreneur has been to by some as a potential next foreign minister should angle of a joint in a coalition with them but one thing the a.f. did may prove to be a wise move as he looks to shore up his own party's position basically this is just a political maneuver to get more voters from this from this side of the spectrum f.t.p.'s at the moment constantly collecting in all kind of fields voters for example with all these digital subjects they took all these photos which are coming like more from the digital natives area and now with this new statement about refugees they try to pick of course also people from if the from the right wing side on the move has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time out at the lagging way behind
in the polls even the possibility that we could see you know the grand coalition with the social democrats on this when it comes to coalition possibilities there are even some that would see him do a little cool not to be the next chancellor of germany however the most realistic options are that the free democrats will not only return to the fold to start following september the twenty bolts vote but that they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all of a people and. it is a big occasion for tank crews in russia who are celebrating their professional day at a marquee event trying to find out what it's like to be in the driving seat of one of the russian army's staple battle tanks.
there's a battle ready frank quite all the training range but before i get close to it i have to test the dodgy terrain myself. you know. we don't like that but i call those in. one of my goals is a test drive to see if a person with a regular license like myself can get this t. a to go in. the driver's seat is right here. here we go. this dirt everywhere. trust me there is not much room in here. so.
a really tough job aside from firing the cannon and told me almost everyone at the base has the skills to easily drive the eighty three times faster than me but the wind would seem much smoother and we agreed to this so i know other tasks well i spill any water from this cup and pray as driving the track and if he goes full throttle. i'm built by him. old far so good. whoa whoa. i managed to keep the car almost full good job bantering going to tell him about a. little while i did that if i didn't still meet up would feel if i'd see enjoyed it but i leave. you have
a drink or tea moscow region. trip to cuba was. approaching half past eight in the morning here in moscow thanks for joining us for the weekly so far we resumed about thirty three minutes. they're not ones that. flew off. the definitions you know i'm by any. one seeking i need. to. take in the equal sitting. down to get it done and then you're going to bring. me think i'm. moving. might not be. good enough to now let the. saudis out.
in this case the lame if one means a leftist they know better than. them tokio find it is going to go. out. of his work was because did it because he didn't seem quite a cultural critic i pulled the premise. desperate for a single purpose. of a superman. training very young. eight months of intensive school. reps. and they save lives.
as long as he runs support still the intel international community should say to run this is not acceptable you should stop financing still from our perspective baseless ballots hamas is holding doing the place but this is something that i believe israel should see to good or withdraw. the united states with other states and to say ok it's not just you know a small israeli problem. the city has a hollywood bactrim the glamour is attracting more tourists they may well bring in more money than cruise passengers.
