says the country's. war. enough is enough i think enough is enough the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now time is short 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 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 deploy troops on weapons to the korean peninsula on top of already existing american air and naval bases their aircraft carrier strike group anti missile ships fighter jets and helicopters will soon be sent to south korea and the accelerated deployment of the u.s. missile system that led to violent mass protests among locals. was .
going while other regional players like russia and china offered their solution to the standoff over north korea but this was not an emergency un security council meeting on monday moscow and beijing proposed what's being called a double freeze initiative under the plan 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 entire proposal calling it quote insulting when our washington correspondent jacqueline vogel looks at who stands to gain from an escalating crisis on that peninsula. the north korean threat is something we hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials with the statements pouring bremer and and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for war. they will be met with fire and fury the
stakes could not be higher the urgency is now this may not get away with what he's doing believe and the urgency is so 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 for south korea also increase amounts of highly sophisticated military equipment which trump this kindly allowing both south korea and japan to purchase in the infamously troubled after the fire fighter jets also be added to that package i think of 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 her 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 sign
a one hundred ten billion dollar defense deal with from neighboring qatar also agreed to buy over twenty one billion dollars worth of american military hardware now trump's approach to conflict is definitely pragmatic make a quick buck if you can right and clearly this guy can sell anything even managed to find a way to spin 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 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 the sort 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 and the plane manufacturers and so forth the people who make missiles the militarization of the policy of 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 head of mine 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 by. the syrian army has secured a milestone a victory in the war against islamic state after it broke the three year long terrorist blockade on the city of dia as a local journalist giuliana muttered reports from the ground. the syrian army managed to break the siege over the military airports here in day to zork state run media reported today that the military operations started by the forces into cemetery in the south was to do resulting link with forces holding the
airplanes of the air boats this is of course the famous meeting between these forces within nine months this comes only a few days after russian backed forces managed to break the siege over the it was then szell areas here in dubai so. some analysts and observers believe that this is would be in maintaining points in the war against the goal is to liberate all that is then szell areas that does just a few of those areas then szell areas and districts in the hands of the extremist civilians live is going to be much easier from now on and their suffering will end the syrian army has made significant progress against i saw in just the past few months and it's a. it gained around eight kilometers a day both civilians and soldiers were celebrating with the advancing army finally joined up with there were maining syrian forces that had been trapped inside that
city. our correspondent author. has more on how the victory was made possible. but three years and two months besieged needs one of the longest blockades in modern history a city was completely cut off from the outside world dozens and hundreds of kilometers in any direction that was. out of the city was
a dangerous trip. thank you. the situation seemed hopeless until now this is the final chapter of the battle of daters or elements of the syrian military have broken the siege they have reached to defend taking thousands of square kilometers from isis in brutal battles few could have predicted that the syrian military would reach their resort in such a short time but evidence again that isis in syria is crumbling while isis is
on the retreat. told there will be plenty of brutal battles ahead but this is a turning point by breaking the siege of data stored in the syrian government has won one of its most significant victories during the civil war reportedly isis put up stiff resistance as the syrian military approached the city they sent more than fifty suicide car bombs in order to impede the advancing military units russian forces had to carry out hundreds of air strikes on isis targets there and tried. bases as well as bomb making factories weapons factories more than that the russian navy launched a salvo of cruise missiles that isis targets and there's order in order to open up this color to into the city sieges be broken but it hasn't yet been lifted isis
still surrounds datasource they also hold a number of districts inside the city and it will take a big battle to clear the roads and to advance further outside the city nevertheless this is a significant victory is being celebrated in did a sort both by the defendants and the civilians who have suffered so much during this scene it will take more than one two to describe what they have been through and syria is celebrating with them their allies as well this is a tremendous victory against isis we discussed the importance of the syrian army's latest victory with former u.k. ambassador to syria for. the breaking of the extremely significant militarily. tremendous boost for the morale of the government and the government forces. we must be
a bit cautious not clear whether it will take days or or weeks. we be the main. and then we. can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in some. still. hold sway so it's going best it's going to take a number of months before the syrian government really control over the whole of syria. this week angry reaction from moscow to the aggressive search of russian diplomatic compounds ordered shot by the united states a video of men searching on the roof for example and ripping up the flooring at one of the sites so that was posted on the facebook page of russia's foreign ministry f.b.i. agents check to basements attics close it with moscow saying the whole operation
made no sense but i washington's unexpected move certainly sparked outrage right here in moscow a top russian officials described it as a seizure of property and characterize it as a gross violation of international law openly demonstrated hostility towards russia and would ultimately lead to a degradation of u.s. russia relations meanwhile the u.s. state department spokesperson said the newest face the barrel of russia related questions of if she referred to the searches simply as a quote tool of the facilities. that in programs are what's your name let's move on move on to something else if you still consider that sovereign russian property or were those properties 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 into that let it lead in this let's
move on to something else here in russia or any other country where u.s. missions that. you did have been searched by the host. governments you know what i don't know if you are working for today or what but i think. and they have latest development in their 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 in response to the seizure and searches of property the russian president vladimir putin asked the russian foreign ministry to take legal action. because the north american counterparts didn't let russia use its property it's a violation of our property rights i will tell the foreign ministry to go to cool see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the u.s. works however washington says it wants to end the diplomatic crisis in fact two days after putin's remark on taking legal action the u.s.
state department had this to say. we would like that's relationship to improve we don't want to continue this kind of diplomatic tit for tat people in the united states need to get over this russia hysteria and that's what it is that's being ginned up. 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 u.s. as a partner and there's no reason that we should reject that all of branch that i think russia has been holding out for some time on us entering that property was a violation of the vienna conventions. and i don't know where it's going to end i do get the sense from russia that they do not want to escalate. the most or still coming your way here on the weekly or else you international it's getting a bit messy on the campaign trail for the german chancellor angela merkel not just
gossip the public square. a little more news today. off the bad guys and tell me you are not cool enough and let's go buy their products please. all the hawks that we along with our audience will watch league. it's good have you with us today for your weekly on r.t. international the german chancellor angela merkel's been having a bit of a rough week both in and out of parliament with just two weeks to go now before the federal election she's been out on the campaign trail trying to drum up support with what appears to be mixed success. was. booed by demonstrators during a rally on wednesday and while the day before
a protester threw tomatoes at her during a similar event the chancellor has criticized those causing disruption but this week it wasn't just got in the way of more cool speeches and she was also recently interrupted by her main rival from the social democrats party while the addressing parliament but taking credit for. what she didn't hesitate to remind those president who's really the boss. that's what you but i think it's sad when. the few months you once. did. i was. this is. a really you know sad. that when you inspect you when he's in parliament it's nice story said that he was
given the beach and now with just two weeks before the country goes to the polls to elect the country's parliament voting intention show merkel's ruling christian democrats way ahead of democratic rivals the left wing party is in third place with the free democrats behind them as is alternative for germany a euro skeptic party the. expected to make its first gains in parliament aussies peter all of it now taking a closer look at who will be the real contenders in this election. with most pundits already calling this german election a win for. schultz there isn't a great deal of intrigue there what's more exciting though has been the battle for third place and who will perhaps be called the kingmaker in the next coalition government. alex of us are the p.s.s. irish language you gonna. want to. come out of.
his in the finest only wanted to present to me. as he. sees. bringing some scandal and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the german political scene is alternative for germany it looks like they will enter a pall of it for the first time following this election and they run apologies for the interruption here an alkie international we can now cross live to saudi arabia where the russian foreign minister is speaking with his saudi arabian counterpart and prospects of the of russia saudi relations are expanding we talked about the areas where we could apply our efforts to develop.
the strengthening our political dialogue on all levels we agreed to you. exchanges in military an indication will cause us to develop human tyrian times and facilitates cooperation in the various sluice including. economy. we agreed to talk about easing the visa regime for the business circles who work in russia and saudi arabia respectively we have an intergovernmental commission working on a number of issues. and now we are talking about the dates of its next meeting we hope that its work will first so i'd say it's an increase in trade even though we saw some decrease in twenty six deals
so we need to keep a stroke of the corporation we haven't really vestments fear between our respective bodies. we are interested which we reaffirmed that we. were interested in taking part in various projects when it comes to infrastructure agriculture and other spheres both in russia and in saudi arabia. but it's not going to be nuts our leaders it's. really. their commitment to the agreements reached within opec plus when it comes to oil production outputs. to the global oil
market we exchanged opinions on the situation in the middle east and north africa and as my counterpart said we note that there is no alternative other than to find a peaceful solution based on the international law and the un charter these conflicts. and issues can only be resolved through political means and national dialogue with the participation of all groups. and the international community should unite to fight global terrorism and extremism. we also agree when it comes to syria that the creation of discolorations is a very important step that helps halt. the. active phase of the conflict and it also creates conditions for promoting the
peaceful resolution. of the conflict based on the security council resolution twenty two fifty four we support the efforts to unite the syrian opposition and create a single unified delegation that could take part in the talks in the engine. the same similar there's a similar platform in asked where as you know the government is talking directly to military leaders we talked about other hotspots of the region like iraq and libya and talked in detail about the resolution of the issues in the middle east we believe that the palestinian
conflict should be resolved based on the u.n. security council resolutions and the initiative proposed by the late saudi arabia came in schools and so we. listened to the. stance of the saudi arabi our on the current situation in the middle east including the situation with qatar. we reaffirmed our position that we believe the situation should be resolved through negotiations. which would take the interest of all parties involved into consideration so we support. the intermediary efforts. of kuwait and
also recently the us are taking. over so we believe. that cooperation within the region is key to resolving the many issues that exist in the region we hope that negotiations will facilitate okro corporation in different areas and will help our countries. to resolve the many issues and. help those to stab belies the situation in the region. some of the commercial break. good afternoon rush today.
you see many in the world say that the syrian crisis should be resolved through political means only so can we say that day russia and saudi arabia's position on the issue is more aligned. and as for the opposition uniting into a single delegation. is it realistic that they would not put forward a precondition swell they come to the negotiations table. yes. and. the situation is very complicated in the persian gulf there are accusations thrown back and forth so what's the future how do you see the prospects and what do you think the solution is going to be here
. so the first question was from me even two questions really sure i'd like to say the following. as for being committed to resolving conflict through political means russia and so dear abby agree completely. just. so happened that in many parts of this region there are there is bloodshed and conflict. which extremists are taking advantage of to try to expand their influence so to find these evil we do have to use military means and the bradleys leaders of. the russian president both spoke about compromise and i'm going to be my own position but as the terrorist threat. as they suffer
defeat like it's already happening in iraq in syria of course we need to put a premium on political processes. that is involved and i think this is necessary and all inclusive dialogue involving all of. us and build a. government of structures and mechanisms for finding solutions that would allow everyone to to religious. leave. as for the second part of your question yes we are actively supporting saudi arabi is efforts to unite the syrian opposition into a one delegation. platform for this was defined in the security council.
