is the weekly here on r.t. international with me in india today live from our moscow studio its all round up of the week's top stories in the latest up to date news of the day welcome to the program north korean media says the country's leader kim jong un has ordered scientists to redouble their efforts to further develop nuclear capabilities earlier the u.s. and boy to the united nations said pyongyang is begging for war however previous warnings from washington did not seem enough to dissuade the north from conducting its latest nuclear test 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 seek a. inflict only the strongest sanctions will enable us to resolve this problem
through diplomacy all of our counterparts need to impose to sanctions 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 and weapons to the korean peninsula on top of already existing american air and naval bases the aircraft carrier strike group says anti missile ships as well as fighter jets and helicopters will be sent to south korea with the accelerated deployment of u.s. onto missile system font sparking violent mass protests among locals. in the.
meanwhile other regional players like russia and china offered a solution to the standoff over north korea at an emergency u.n. 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 american south korea would stop their joint military exercises however the u.s. dismissed the proposal calling it insulting. washington correspondent. who stands to gain from an escalating situation on the peninsula. the north korean threat is something we hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials with the statement supporting. 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 increased amounts of highly sophisticated military equipment which trump this kindly allowing both south korea and japan to purchase and the infamously troubled f. thirty five fighter jets also be added to that pact a kind 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 you buy a little it's all nations of conscience most worked 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 trying to approach the 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. and 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 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 bone that every solution must be solved by a depart 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 that broke the three year long tyrus blockade of the city of tears on local channels jon and i checked reports the latest from the ground. zero on the unit regained full control over an around the square you are in in throes of their elbows said you and the international highway of their results now this is cheese month come just off to work a few days of. lifting full siege of the city of their resort and
just a few hours after they've brought this siege of gaza militants on the military airport and there is already. this achievement also show you the determination of syrian and drash and governments to the kids extremism on the syrian soil some analysts and observers believe that this is would be in maintaining bones in the war against the goal is to liberate all that is the initial areas not just a few. presidential areas and districts in the hands of extremists civilians live is going to be much easier from now on and their suffering will end the syrian army has made significant progress against iceland the past few months in its advance on terrorists or it gained around eight kilometers a day both civilians and soldiers were celebrating when the in foxing army finally joined with the remaining syrian forces inside the city. where i
was. our correspondent rod god 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 the city was completely cut off from the outside world dozens and hundreds of kilometers in any direction there was. out of the city it was
a dangerous helicopter trip. thank you. thank. god or have. the situation seemed hopeless until now this is the final chapter of the battle of the elements of the syrian military have broken the siege they have reached a defended 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 fold 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 air force had to carry out hundreds of air strikes on isis targets there and try. 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 is order in order to open up this quarter do into the city sieges be broken but it hasn't yet been lifted isis still surrounds daters or they also hold
a number of districts inside the city and it will take a bitter urban battle to clear those and to advance further outside the city nevertheless this is a significant victory that 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 tome 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. chain with former u.k. ambassador to syria peter ford. the breaking of this extremely significant militarily. tremendous boost for the mirage of the government and the government forces. we must be a bit cautious not clear whether it will take days or or weeks to clear.
the the main. and then the fourth. who consolidating the control of the government in some. hardee's still. holds 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 so angry reaction. from moscow to the aggressive search of russian diplomatic compounds ordered shot by the us video of men searching on the roof and ripping up the flooring at one of the sites was posted on the russian foreign ministry's facebook page f.b.i. agents checked basements attics drawers and closets with moscow saying the whole operation made no sense washington's unexpected move certainly sparked outrage here
in moscow top russian officials described it as a seizure of property and characterized it as a gross violation of international law that openly demonstrated still ety towards russia and would inevitably lead to a degradation of u.s. russia relations meanwhile the u.s. state department spokes person had an hour faced a barrage of russia related questions after she referred to the search as simply as a top of the facilities. oh i'm sorry sir what's your name let's move on move on to something else you still consider that sovereign russian property or were those property search because there was a concern that they were being used for intelligence purposes which would be like a different issue and it's not going to get out of this so let's move on to something else you. treat us. like. you know what i don't know if you are working hard today or what but i think
. in the latest development in their ongoing diplomatic spat 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 of russian president vladimir putin asked the russian foreign ministry to take legal action. because because the north american counterparts didn't let russia use its property it's a violation of all property rights i will tell the foreign ministry to go it's a cool see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the us works however washington a says it wants to end the diplomatic crisis two days after putin's remark on legal action the u.s. state department had this to say we would like that 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 and 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 u.s. 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 some time on us entering their 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 it's been a rough week a. campaign trail more on that story after this short break. in
case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington the washington post media the media over voters elected to businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before . here's what people have been saying about rejected and. just pull on. your show i go out of my way to watch your words this is really packs a punch oh yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is going to say we are apparently better than. the c. people you've never heard of love jack tonight the president of the world bank very . seriously send us an e-mail.
welcome back to the weekly here on out international german chancellor angela merkel has been facing a rough week both in and out of palm and has 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 was. booed by demonstrators during a rally on wednesday the day before a protester threw tomatoes are touching a similar event the chancellor has criticised those causing disruption this week it wasn't just who got in the way of michael speeches. she also was recently interrupted by her main rival from the social democrats party politics and calm and taking credit for their work but she didn't hesitate to remind those present who's really the boss. that's with you by flick so i'm going to tell you the name of the ceilings. you know you will.
soon. as. if. they are moving you know side up and. when you inspect one point. it's the least story so that's new. it isn't. that 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 dealing is in third place with the free democrats behind them as is alternative for germany a euro skeptic party that's expected to make its first gains in parliament artie's peter oliver takes a closer look at who will be the real contenders in this election. with most pundits already calling this election a win for. schultz there isn't
a great deal of intrigue that. has been the battle for third place and who will perhaps become the kingmaker in the next coalition government. documents or p.s.s. iraq's long guns. were to. come out of. the president to. bring some scandal and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the political scene. germany it looks like they will enter
a pall of it for the first time following this election and they run on a message against. policy even drafted in one of the out agencies that helped promote trump in his campaign. good alternative for germany is not going to be called to any coalition with. likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic. liberal pro-business they film charisma and photogenic media 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 peace prevails refugees must. choose a new place in the womb. i'm not being harsh this is realism speaking aping the
a.f. there 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 mall voters from this from this side of the spectrum f.t.p.'s at the moment constantly collecting in all kinds of fields voters for example with all these digital subjects and now with this new statement about refugees they try to pick of course also people from if the from the right wing side the look cool has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time outs at the lagging way behind in the polls there's even the possibility that we could see into 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 be the next chancellor of germany however the most realistic options are that the free democrats will not only return to the fold to study
following september the twenty holds post but that they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all of a people and. it's a big occasion for tank craze in russia who is celebrating their professional day to monkey event. and found out what it's like to be in the driving seat of one of the russian army staple battle tanks. there's a battle ready frank white on 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 that did.
