broadcasting live from our studios in moscow recapping the week's top stories with our weekly program this is an r.t. international now the leader of north korea has told his nuclear scientists to step up their bomb making efforts kim jong un was speaking on saturday at a huge party to mark the country's sixty ninth anniversary young yang has continued to defy warnings from the u.s. government. 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 to 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 earlier the u.s. rejected a russian chinese plan for a double freeze an initiative under the scheme of north korea would halt its nuclear and ballistic missile tests and in return america and south korea would stop their joint military exercises but the pentagon has shown no sign of scaling back its role in south korea it recently announced plans to provide extra troops and weapons for u.s. bases in the country aircraft carrier strike group says anti-missile ships as well as fighter jets and helicopters will be sent to south korea and artie's jungle in volgograd explains prices means big profits for arms makers. 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 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 and the infamously troubled after the fire fighter jets also be added to that package and 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 terror threatening the region and causing so much you buy a lintz all nations of kinds 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 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 dick top from washington and whatever force and threats are necessary to achieve that end will be employed. this week in the syrian army secured a key victory in the fight against islamic state of breaking a three year blockade of the city of bears or well journalist john not much chad has details. see an army unit regained full control over a panorama square you are in in throes of there as those cities and the international highway of death result 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 kate's 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 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 in june islamic state controlled around a quarter of the country but three months on around half that territory has been lost during the army's advance on dares or it was gaining ground about eight kilometers per day the breaking of the siege triggered celebrations among soldiers
of the the the main fifty four and then we. can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in some pocket jihad these still. hold sway so it going that beth is going to take a number of months before the syrian government really control over the whole of syria. was just two weeks to go before germany's federal election chancellor merkel has been out on the campaign trail but not everything is going going her way. chancellor was booed at a rally on thursday and two days earlier she was hit by a tomato thrown from the crowd at a similar event but it wasn't just the demonstrators who got in the way of her
speeches while addressing parliament she was interrupted by her main rival from the social democrats for taking credit for their work. that's when you buy flick sound and maybe by name. as. if. he was really you know sad about. that when you inspect it when clinton is in parliament it's nice. that she was here we. looks set to win a fourth term as it chancellor with polls giving her party a clear lead over the social democrats the left party trails in third place with the free democrats behind them and the anti immigration alternative for germany
party is expected to gain its first seats in parliament parties put over takes a closer look at the election ahead. 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. documents or p.s. guns. want to have 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 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 the any coalition with. likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic policy of the 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. such human right for choosing your place in the womb. i'm not being harsh this is really speaking the a.f. did they 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 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. has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time out it's 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 on this when it comes to coalition
possibilities there are even some that would see uncle luke will 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 calling september the twenty olds vote but that they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all over. the russian government responded angrily this week to the seizure of diplomatic compounds in the united states because of f.b.i. agents on the roof of the san francisco consulate were released by the russian foreign ministry they can also be seen removing the ceiling panels and searching through drawers and cupboards also claims the whole operation made no sense and washington's unexpected move sparked outrage in moscow russian officials describe it as a gross violation of international law and an openly hostile act against russia meanwhile the u.s. state department spokesperson faced
a barrage of questions after she referred to the searches as a tour of the facilities. this is a marvel that in programs are certain what's your name let's move on move on to something else 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 let's move let's move on to something else here you know russia or any other country where u.s. missions that have been deleted 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 members . of the start of this month the u.s. ordered russia to close three diplomatic premises with just forty eight hours notice immediately after the eviction officers searched the san francisco consulate and a trade missions in new york and washington in response president vladimir putin ordered the foreign ministry to take legal action. because because the american
counterparts didn't let russia use its property it's a violation of property rights i will tell the foreign ministry to go to school see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the u.s. works are two days after portends remarks 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 anti 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 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. hurricane earl has slammed into the state of florida bringing storm surges in sustained winds of one hundred eighty miles per hour and the eye of the storm made landfall on the southwest coast bringing down power lines and turning roads into rivers it is now moving up the coastline towards tampa bay more than six million people have fled the storm's path in the biggest evacuation in u.s. history the national hurricane center says that for those who remain the situation is life threatening and over the past week or more has been devastating the caribbean islands claiming at least twenty seven lives there.

a crowd of supporters swept him across the polish border into ukraine saakashvili is stateless after renouncing his georgian citizenship to become the governor of a desa and then having his ukrainian citizen ship revoked by the country's president. earlier on sunday saakashvili attempted to cross the border by train but was forced out by officers he later caught a bus and got past a checkpoint with the help of hundreds of locals who overpower the guards there ukrainian police now say that he will face criminal charges for illegally crossing the border the former official was once a close ally of ukraine's president but they fell out last year after saakashvili
saakashvili dealings with ukraine show the deep chaos gripping the country. checkers really of self is wanted for corruption in georgia was as we know of course the danger of him coming back this is that the ukrainian authorities are full met with the most experience in back to georgia to face trial there so he's taking a bit of a risk by trying to come back into the country it's very old the play such a big role in ukrainian politics and seasoned ukrainian and being given the governorship of the adesa region which is a very you know region especially because its goal is russian population parachuted in really boyd by the west and palace i think what's going on is just shows how do it in disarray and in politics all. you know the revolutionists and incredibly sour nobody really knows what to do next the colonies in free fall they're not going to be joining the european union it's on scene they're talking about joining nato but all that will do is present potentially spall for the war. the work of
