it's the weekend here on r.t. international with mina to today live from our moscow studio its all round up of the week's top stories and the latest up to date news of the day welcome to the program the north korean leaders ordered his country scientists to up their efforts to further develop nuclear weapons that's according to state media earlier this week washington's and voice to the u.n. said pyongyang's begging for war however previous warnings from the white house failed to dissuade the north from conducting its recent 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 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 seek 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 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 with their joint military exercises however the u.s. dismissed the proposal calling it insulting washington seems to see the further militarization of the korean peninsula as the solution it says it will deploy troops and weapons there in addition to the existing american air and naval bases aircraft carrier strike group and two missile ships as well as fighter jets and helicopters will be sent to south korea. the north korean threat is something we
hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials but the statements bring 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 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 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 past thirty five fighter jets but 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 fire of sectarian conflict and threatening
the region and causing so much you by 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 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 of 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 by. the syrian army secured a key victory in the fight against islamic state after the break a three year long blockade of the city of tire is still local journalist jana chad has the details.
see an army unit regained full control over a panorama square you are in in throes of their l's over city and the international highway of their results now this sit cheeseman scum just also are a few days old. lifting full siege of the city of their resort and just a few hours after they broke the siege of gaza militants on the military airport in their resort. this achievements also show you the determination of syrian and drash and governments to to kate's extremism on the syrian soil some analysts and observers believe that this is would be an main turning point in the war against isis the goal is to liberate all that is the initial areas that are 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. the
syrian army is being advancing rapidly in recent months as you can see on the map here in june islamic state controlled around a quarter of the country but wind on three months in a round hole for that trees being lost now during the army's advance on terry so it was gaining around eight kilometers a day news that the advancing troops are finally linked up with the remaining syrian forces inside the city was greeted with relief to both soldiers and civilians. but i was. something. that.
certainly the breaking of this extremely significant militarily psychologically tremendous booth for them are all of the government and the government forces. we must be a bit cautious it's not clear whether it will take days or or weeks to clear i flew through out through the main fifty four and then be on for through can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in some pocket jihad these still. hold sway so it's going at best it's going to take a number of months before the syrian government really control over the whole of syria. german chancellor angela merkel had
a tough few days both in and out of parliament with just two weeks to go before the general election she's been out on the campaign trail although it's not being going on how way. was the chancellor was jailed and booed by demonstrators during a rally on wednesday while the day before a protester threw tomatoes at her during a similar event merkel's criticize those causing disruption but this week it wasn't just hecklers who got in the way of her speeches. while addressing parliament she was interrupted by how main rival from the social democrats are taking credit for their work but she didn't hesitate to remind those persons who's the boss. that's with the back foot. ceilings. you know.
if. she was you know. when you were inspecting when. that was. but just two weeks before the country votes polls show calls really in christian democrats way ahead of their main social democrat rivals the left wing party dealing with the free democrats behind them as is alternative for germany a euro skeptic party that's expected to gain its first seats in parliament peter all of a takes 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 become the kingmaker in the next coalition
government. were to close to the amount of. time. bring some scandal and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the political scene it's all to germany it looks like they will enter a pall of it for the first time following this election and they run on a holiday 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 halted any coalition with. likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic. liberal business they congress must take on 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 peace prevails refugees must. choose a new place in the womb. i'm not being harsh this is really speaking 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 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 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 the if the from the right wing side the likud has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time out at the end lagging way behind in the polls there's even the possibility that we could see you know the grand coalition with the social democrats and that's when it comes to coalition possibilities there are even some who would see and 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 start following september the twenty olds vote but that they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all of our people in. russia us time threaten to hate and.
the room. welcome back to the weekly on r.t. international moscow responded angrily this week to the searching of russian diplomatic compounds which had been ordered to close by washington video of men searching on the roof and ripping up flooring at one of the science was posted on the russian foreign ministries facebook page f.b.i. agents checked basements and attics drawers and cupboards with moscow claiming the whole operation made no sense washington's unexpected move spall to outrage in
moscow top russian officials describe it as the seizing of property and slammed it as a gross violation of international law which openly damage. straighted hostility towards russia would inevitably lead to a worsening of u.s. russia relations meanwhile a u.s. state department spokesperson faced a barrage of russia related questions after she referred to the searches as a simple top of the facilities. are writing programs are so 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 search 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 a lot of this so let's move on to something else here. or any other country u.s. missions that. has been searched by the. government you know what i don't know if you are working for 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 just forty eight hours notice immediately after the eviction u.s. officers searched the san francisco consulate and trade missions in new york and washington in response president vladimir putin asked the russian foreign ministry to take legal action. because kristen or 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 to cool see how well the highly praised the dish or system in the us works however washington 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 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 wanted 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 us entering their 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. water levels are rising on the coast of the u.s. state of florida where it will hit the mainland it's expected to pick up strength as it moves away from cuba towards florida keys according to the u.s. national hurricane center is strongest atlantic storm on record it's killed at least twenty five people and devastated islands in the caribbean.
