that week here on r.t. international is mean a day or two day live from our must go studio it's all round up of the week's top stories are the latest up to date news of the day welcome to the program the north korean leader's orders his country's scientists to up their efforts to further develop nuclear weapons that's according to state media earlier this week washington's envoy to the u.n. said pyongyang is 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 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 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 american south korea would stop their joint military exercises however the us 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 on weapons there in addition to the existing american air and naval bases aircraft carrier strike group anti missile ships as well as fighter jets and helicopters will be sent to south korea as artie's jacqueline explains war mongering may be turning into
a lucrative business for the trumpet ministration. 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 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 and the infamously troubled f. thirty five 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 fire of sectarian
conflict and threatening the region and causing so much by a lintz all nations of conscience 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 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 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 and the plane manufacturers and so forth the people who make missiles the militarization of the policy of using military threats and military force as 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 secured a key victory in the fight against islamic state after it broke a three year long blockade of the city if there is still local journalists jahannam or chad has more details.
syrian army units regained full control over a panorama square you are in in throes of their l's over so do you and the international highway of their results now this is cheeseman to come just off to work for a few days of. 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 and there is already. this achievement also issue the determination of syrian and drash and governments to to kids extremism on the syrian soil 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 the initial areas that are just a few of those areas then szell areas and districts in the hands of the extremists
civilians live is going to be much easier from now on and their suffering will end . the syrian army has been 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 and around hof of the type of trees being lost during the army's advance on days or it was gaining around eight kilometers a day news that the advancing troops are finding linked up with the remaining syrian forces inside the city was greeted with relief to both soldiers and civilians. but i was.
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 queer eye for the outcome of the the main fifty four and then be on for food can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in some pocket jihad these still. hold sway so it 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 beat out on the campaign trail although it's not been going on how way. it was. the chancellor was jeered and booed by demonstrators during a rally on thursday while two days earlier a protester threw tomatoes at her during a similar event michaels criticize those behind disruptions but this week wasn't just hecklers who got in the way of her speeches. while addressing parliament she was interrupted by her main rival from the social democrats taking credit for their work but she didn't hesitate to remind them those president who's the boss that's when you buy food so i'm going to throw your money in the ceilings. and this you know.
if. he was a group you know say they are. doing that when you inspect it when he's in parliament. that's because i think it was. with just two weeks before the country votes polls show merkel is reeling christian democrats way ahead of their main social democrat rivals the left wing party to link is third 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 it takes a closer look at who will be the real contenders in this election with most pundits already calling this job election a win for anglo burkle over schultz there isn't
a great deal of intrigue there what's more exciting though has been the battle for place and who will perhaps be called the kingmaker in the next coalition government . because of the key issues are no longer guns. i want to have close to the amount of. his in and he finished only wanted to present to me. about the high if not ceased. bringing some scandal and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the german political scene is alternative to germany it looks like they will enter a pall of it for the first time following this election and they run. like message
against refugee policy even drafted in one of the ad agencies that helped promote donald trump in his campaign. good alternative for germany is not going to be faulted any coalition with. likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic policy a classically liberal pro-business they film charisma and photogenic leader has appeared front and center however he does appear to have lifted so all this migration policy right out of the alternative think job and play ball if peace prevails refugees must prisoners such human rights to choose a new place in the world i'm not being harsh this is realism speaking aping the a.f.p. if 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. is at the moment constantly collecting in all kind of fields voters for example with all. digital subject 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 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 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 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 start following september the twenty faults vote but that they will also be part of the
ruling coalition peter all of our people in. russia us time threaten to hit a new low after searches of moscow's diplomatic compound long story after the short break. as long as he runs support still the intel international community should say to run this is not acceptable you should stop firing on this ng still from all perspectives baseless ballots hamas saw the us is holding doing all the place but this is something that i believe is what it should seek to good or we draw some schools with the united states and with other states and to say ok it's not just you know a small easily problem. what
politicians do something that. they put themselves on a lot of big get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to be. that you'd like to be the person this is what will befall three of them or ten people that i'm interested in always in the waters of. course. welcome back to the weekly here on r.t. international moscow responded angrily this week to the searching of russian diplomatic compound which had been ordered to close by washington video of men searching on the roof and ripping up flooring at one of the sites 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 sparked outrage in moscow top russian officials described it as the seizing of property and slammed it is a gross violation of international law which openly demonstrated hostility towards russia would inevitably lead to a worsening of u.s. russian relations meanwhile the u.s. state department spokesperson faced a barrage of russian related questions after she referred to the searches as a simple tool of the facilities. i'm sorry 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 let's go let's go let's move on to something else here. treat us.
you know what i don't know if you are working for today or what but i remember. in the latest development in their ongoing diplomatic spat the u.s. ordered russia to close three diplomatic premises with 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 our 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 court to 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'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 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. water levels are rising on the coast of the state of florida where will it hit the u.s. mainland you can see in front of you on the screen live pictures from the area it's expected to pick up strength as it leads the way from cuba according to the u.s. national hurricane center is the strongest atlantica storm on record winds that are
already batching the mainland with three u.s. casualties already reported meanwhile twenty five victims have been confirmed. confirmed to add on to have a stated islands in the county. as the florida state governor is people to leave don't chomp on his. have it in their heads in prayer for the victims of the natural disaster.
have to test the dodgy terrain myself. with i like cows living but i call the oil goes the din. one of my goals is a test drive to see if a person with a regular license like myself can get this t. eighty go in. the driver's seat is right here. here we go. there's dirt everywhere. trust me there is not much room in here. somewhere.
there is no steering we. don't right now. we are running when you're running a regular. the freight for you. it's the other way. low mileage one of those shows she said well obviously i didn't do. that well but at least i didn't get off track and i'll tell you what these guys have got a really tough job aside from firing the cannon and. 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 test will i spill any water from this cop and drake is driving that and if he goes full throttle. i'm built by accident. so far so good. whoa whoa. i managed to keep the car almost full good job andrei i'm going to tell him about a. little while idea but if i didn't. see the choice if i lead. you to trend toward t. moscow reed you. should stick.
around for the weekly don't forget to check us out on social media on facebook twitter and on our website. i'll be back at the top of the alice so to stay with us . but maybe. i would. maybe more use and make. them like talk to me. at all this was for us to. hear this body of the cutest body it will break the love of this story here but this it. if you think the fleet will. be he'll get in that. sort of port but it's easy to see and if we. discuss the
foreign minister of israel. great to see you thank you very much for talking to us thank you now you're currently in the opposition to israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu but i despise. i understand when it comes to the issue of iran most israeli politicians agreed that it represents a major deadly threat to israel that has to be curtailed through all possible means at my ride in formulating your position yes not only for recently political and so we believe that iran is supposed to use well but not only to you but to the into. and therefore we need to be dealt with the international community as such. i see him prime minister netanyahu who recently visited russia communicated something along those same lines to russian president vladimir putin do you by any chance know what how the russians have responded to those concerns raised by the israeli prime minister i hope that those of us would understand that these were. the sort
of concern. of the concerns of other states in the reason the not only listen iran is both of the problem iran would not accept the right of israel to exist the wrong course which is a total waste of the eleven on iran support still in the region and fine i'm still in the region and though full we all understand that there's a need to give an answer of course and to confront. their doing in the region but we also need to conform to minimize and to would use the power of iran and we're looking at the day off till i mean we're all familiar of the situation in syria and the question is what the day after would look like if we would see iran and then the iran influence in iraq and iran influencing syria and iran the influence in lebanon with.
