by midmorning on tuesday here in moscow thanks for joining us on oxy international we have news. the u.n. security council has adopted new sanctions against north korea the latest resolution prohibits the poacher's of textiles from the country it also restricts the hiring of north koreans as foreign workers plus the document puts a cap on pyongyang's of oil imports but this version is a big step back from what was originally proposed by the united states in new york a correspondent and explains this is a very different resolution than the draft that was circulated by the united states the original draft of the resolution that the u.s. circulated had actually called for a full oil and natural gas embargo against the d.p. r. k. forbidding north korea from importing any oil or natural gas well the resolution
that just passed is far different simply caps the amount of oil and natural gas that north korea can import now the original draft that was being circulated furthermore called for a freezing of the assets of kim jong il and an a travel ban on north korea's leader forbidding him from leaving north korea that was not included in the resolution that just passed now immediately after it was unanimously passed by the fifteen members of the u.n. security council quite a change in tone from u.s. leaders regarding north korea we heard nikki haley speaking before the u.n. security council today and kind of calm tone saying that the north koreans have not passed a point of no return that there are peaceful and diplomatic solutions to the crisis but we've heard some very different words from nikki haley herself as whether as well as other u.s. officials in relation to north korea they will be met with fire. the shield stands guard. and the sword stands. massive military response of the regime both objective and overwhelming nuclear threats show that he
is begging for war. we are not looking for a war the north korean regime has. not yet past the point of no return if it agrees to stop its nuclear program it can reclaim its future if it proves it can live in peace the world will live in peace we also heard from the representative of the russian federation now the ambassador for the russian federation he talked about how russia's opinion and russia's perspective has been and russia maintains that it is not acceptable for north korea to have nuclear weapons furthermore he went on to emphasize the double freeze proposal put forward by russia and china calling for a freeze in provocative military drills in the south and in exchange for a freeze on nuclear proliferation and provocative activities from the north this is
the ambassador of the russian federation speaking before the u.n. security council. it's a big mistake to underestimate this russian chinese initiative it remains on the table at the security council and we will insist on it being considered now the resolution that was just passed emphasized a call for the six party talks to resume from day one russia and china have called for negotiations and a diplomatic solution to the crisis and an easing of tensions on the korean peninsula and it seems that that view put forward by russia and china from the beginning of this crisis has prevailed with the resolution being passed by the fifteen member body the u.n. security council. the experts we spoke to think that a diplomatic solution to the korean crisis is still possible despite the fact of the u.s. is pushing tougher measures against pyongyang i think that they wanted some action to be taken and they knew that china and i believe also russia would not go along
with what the draft was that was really recipe for extinction for north korea korea has also said that if there is a peace treaty signed between then them and the united states and there's a hollow to those maneuvers that they would suspend nuclear and missile tests but the united states has brush this off as absolutely unthinkable and so i think that's the real reason that we have an ongoing crisis so you know what you have here is basically nikki haley having initially distributed the most extreme abstentions. perhaps even historically this latest round of sanctions which was supposed to be extremely hard hitting but instead reflected the influence of both russia and china in pushing for diplomacy actually signals a possibility and even though things have gotten about as grim as they possibly
could with regard to u.s. policy toward north korea there is a rational pathway at hand. following the adoption of the resolution russia and china reiterate their reiterate their call for that of a double freeze plan for north korea which was mentioned by a correspondent moments ago under the whole plan pyongyang would stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in return america and south korea would stop their joint military exercises that of the vote the north korean leader warned that washington would pay a price if it's tough a draft resolution was passed. a correspondent on a hill reports from seoul. considering the sanctions resolution passed by the u.n. security council is the toughest to date concerning north korea's ballistic missile and a nuclear weapons program and is furious before the vote even took place the government issued a very harsh statement warning they will act tough on the quote u.s.
gangsters and promised pain and suffering. the calming measures to be taken by the d.p. cools the u.s. the greatest pain and suffering it's has through its entire history despite much talk out of seoul underscoring their commitment to a diplomatic solution this week it was announced by opposition lawmakers they will include requests for u.s. tactical nukes in their twenty eight thousand budget proposal however they say while they would like more sanctions any additional actions taken against pyongyang will need to include russia and china which. i refer to the need for tighter sanctions and belief in the china and russia are sticking to the same position but what concrete measures need to be taken is something we must discuss together. this week a delegation of opposition lawmakers from seoul will head to washington where they will likely make this request for
a tactical nuclear weapons china is on the record saying such an act would be a red line as there stonily against the presence of nuclear weapons on the korean peninsula so if such an action is to be carried out by the trump administration it would surely only inflame tensions further in seoul on your part and tell our team . a huge trove of blank syrian passports has been stolen from the government germany's orthe already so that over eleven thousand of them might have fallen into the hands of islamic state adding that fake passports give the terrorists easier access to europe more details now with artie's petero. eleven thousand blanks syrian passports could be in the hands of isis stops according to an investigation that was carried out by the build on sunday newspaper citing documents from the german police and from the german interior ministry wants to build in with a person's details these passports codes allow terrorists to into europe from
detected using a valid passport disguising themselves as refugees developments in connection with the refugee situation has shown that terrorist organizations they using the opportunity to smuggle potential attackers all supporters into europe in germany undetected for the colts of passports a mostly used for illegal entry without further motives like carrying out a terrorist attack this is more news that should to worry germans i should have emerged earlier this month that a group of sixty four members of a group linked to al qaida may have traveled disguising themselves as refugees another group who are accused of war crimes and carrying out numerous must because we've also seen an uptick in the number of those accused of having being fighters with the organizations facing trial. here in germany one of those is the rebel commander able to him if he's accused of having tortured people in syria he entered
the country as a refugee at the end of this month prosecutors from stuttgart will bring charges of murder and belonging to a terrorist organization against four syria nationals accused of being members of joe but. we contacted the german authorities and asked them what they have to say about the potential risks of terrorists arriving here in germany using refugees as cover is long be known but so-called blank post balls was stolen from the syrian regime these documents the listed on the interpol last documents they debase so that the possibles can be matched with passports presented on arrival that quite bland say attitude to blank passports potentially being in the hands of isis isn't going down well with some the problem itself is far bigger than we actually realize and that the mainstream media is able to it's a broadcast and bring to the attention of you know the citizens of the world the countries that have ill thought out these policies on immigration and the slack
border controls that we've seen in european countries i think the results of that is really on one survival i don't think they have any idea of the sheer magnitude of these threats and this problem a lot more needs to be done and if it isn't done we're going to see significant terrorist incidents the sheer number of terrorist incidents we witnessed over the last three years that are linked to isis in european countries shows us that even with a small number of terrorists that are potentially off the radar the governments don't have the ability to cope so if we're looking at such a high number you know in the thousands and i think that definitely going to be struggling to right to cope and woefully incapable of doing such german authorities uncovered a sin a half thousand cases of people trying to enter the country using for. documents in twenty sixteen and the news that isis may have access to over eleven thousand blank
syrian possible it's means that migration authorities are going to have to be on the watch to make sure the documents handed over at the border much the real identity of those doing the handing over piece are all of a. while i sold fighters are trying to make it into europe thousands have previously gone to fight for the terror group in syria from abroad the lion's share of foreign i still recruits came from tunisia than russia china russia france germany the u.k. also among the countries from where a significant number of citizens left to fight. many of those who went to syria and iraq to fight for islamic state brought their families. but with terror groups suffering a string of major defeats the wives and children of a large number of killed five has opened up in refugee camps with uncertain futures and aleksey was to talk to some of the widows of foreign extremists in iraq where hundreds of families are stranded the location and identities will not be disclosed
. says china. because it is such a dumb was it is. people like. you have. any of. the legal fate of the wives of i saw the fight is not yet clear meanwhile in europe last year around six hundred people were put on trial for terrorism with more than three hundred fifty prosecuted for ties to jihadism should the why by so fight is be treated in the same way as other is the most extremists we discussed the issue with political commentators. and. well i think the most important thing we have to
do is avoid these people coming back to our countries these people have joined a terrorist organization they wish to join a state that isn't the united kingdom isn't america isn't russia isn't even chechnya these are people who are dangerous extremist terrorists and what i hope will happen and i sincerely think that all of our country should support syria and iraq ensuring these people are prosecuted or brought to justice what we're talking about wives and children of isis fighters who have gone out to syria to iraq to kurdistan and have been found themselves inadvertently getting in broiled as part of as much a victim as anyone else has been in part of these atrocities certainly the wives and children innocent victims in this play these are. children mothers who are claiming that we came here innocently we came here we followed the husbands they have been killed in combat and we are left stranded here with nowhere to go and
they are close no risk to the state it's let's be clear what the argument that is making is that you are an adult woman have chosen to join a terrorist organization and just because you're married you should have no responsibility for that whatsoever of what mr savage but you are in a terrorist organization so i want to not have you make your own please let me say they signed on for lying beside me so let's be clear on my position and let's be clear what i look at you actually look a little like your name for yourself as a showing for the majority of iraq just take the air piece out i keep talking the position of the majority of british people in my view is that they do not want terrorists back in the united kingdom they do not want the wives of terrorists back in the united kingdom but they may want the children who are entirely innocent to return to the united kingdom and with that in mind i'll put my earpiece back in these women many of them will be innocent people the children the innocent people they didn't sign up to a terrorist organization it's not like joe. a club where you sign up to get
a membership form they followed their husbands into walls aren't people who have not committed any wrongdoing who are no risk to the state the answer is to integrate them we have the national security operators in place to be able to tackle these issues right now we have got very successful models around britain we've got very successful models around europe it was done carefully but the answer is not just to exclude everybody all we do is create more problems for the future we need to bring these people back then show them some love show them some tolerance absolute they'll be on no doubt interrogated by the intelligence services find out what they know but the idea is not imprison them not leave them stateless not leave them stranded we bring them home. international facebook is being fined again this time for violating users' privacy if you're on facebook you might want to hear this story just to mark.
what hopes to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so if you want to express. some want to be rich. which is going to be this is what. real people are. interested. in case you're new to the game this is how it works in our economy is built around court. confirmation from washington to washington media the. voters elect these men to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done.
good to have you with us today for your news facebook it's been fined one point two million euros for breaking privacy rules a spanish data protection agency accused the company of handling user's personal data without their consent now a facebook denies the entire accusation claiming that their users decide what information they want to share but the firm also stressed it does not use personal data the talk about voters' minds we asked a mix of people in madrid what they thought about facebook's approach to prophesy. because. we're formation to all the. companies that we all know about i suppose you have a choice they decide to put on the throne and it's illegal and
being taken to these i think i wonder if they use my personal information people don't know about these should be allowed should be given a choice this is what you can or don't have that don't just do it without asking that. it is not the first time that facebook faced data infringement charges beltran also already has filed a claim relating to the tracking of known users of the social network of france imposed one hundred fifty thousand euro fine for using private data without proper notice and the e.u. commission actually won one hundred ten million euro case against facebook over the automatic linking abusers pages to what's up accounts founder and director of the show how you can use platform mateo a book i mean he believes that governments are not doing enough to protect users personal information there is clearly been a been
a breach. and hopefully the courts will will stand by that. but there have been many cases where big multinational corporations have gone away with . variety of different things from not paying enough corporate tax to issues around privacy and data hope that the this issue will stand and facebook would have to pay following may seem big on the money but if you compare it to the amount of revenue that facebook make when advertising one of revenue they make on our data it's pittance in comparison to what they make the issue really is that these companies make so much money that a small fine here or there really doesn't make a difference and i think governments need to do more to protect our data from multinationals that are making you know billions off of it. as we can to a tropical depression after previously reaching. category five and severity it's already dumping rain now across the u.s. states of georgia and alabama and continuing northwest.
has left a path of devastation with the death toll rising to ten in america and thirty eight in the caribbean chauffeurs filled up with thousands waiting for the storm to pass hurricane has left over six million without power as wind speeds reached about one hundred thirty miles per hour it's also thought to have cost two hundred billion dollars worth of damage as people still struggle from the aftermath many also question the authority as response to the crisis. is some of the issues. in times of natural catastrophes like hurricane there's certainly room for heroism and heartwarming tales yet many of those affected by the disaster are left to fend for themselves is a storm of the new list destructive power and safety to consumers still even just getting out of its way now that's very blunt advice from authorities getting to safety however has been proving not so easy for many.
hundreds of tourists were left stranded on business for the night including brits and their families theory is the government's inaction a similar situation unfolded for the canadians some waiting hours hoping to board a plane only to be told they weren't on the list. is just unfortunate that was our own government's in a situation like this you know words and you don't see any action. now imagine trying to get away when airlines ticket prices some reaching the tag three thousand dollars some airlines have apologized for that while others have tried to justify it as a last minute fare hotels are also taking advantage of this. charging up to three hundred dollars a night and social media is fuming with anger over expensive accommodations price gouging in general has been cited as one of the most common issues at the moment.
the cost of food water and gas skyrocketed as companies claimed items were running out of forty's were forced to open a complete hotline which has already received more than eight thousand calls unfortunately it seems government apathy and price gouging are just as predictable when preparing for a hurricane as the effects of the storm itself. on our team washington d.c. locals in the french territory of the caribbean island of st maarten are angry that tourists were given priority during evacuations from. the local authorities for the comment we're still waiting for any response meanwhile we spoke to an activist who actually wants to launch a parliamentary investigation. something which is not. noticed the. only with tourists on why people are. black
people or some people whatever their color they were in need some people were even though they were of course seriously injured so they needed. doesn't have to be organized according to your calmer or your a social club it has to be connected to your home so what's was. the debate about how did things how were these things organized where they were called into the social or health emergency or. journalists all over the world have gone to extreme lengths to brave the wrath of hurricane and live broadcasts we've seen wind swept drenched clothing and dramatic footage as journalists try to compose themselves while still reporting under extreme weather conditions but all the while telling people to stay inside and stay
all right. everything was fine until alternative media came along everything was fine until the internet everything was fine until facebook and twitter and you tube and and various video platforms and periscope and everything was fine if you don't give us something exciting we're back to this again so it's an existential threat they're there fighting for their lives and they will do anything up to one including dying on television to get that most wanted to viewer attention thank you for joining us here on this tuesday on r.t.
