good morning. thanks for joining us this. donald trump it seems unimpressed by the latest u.n. security council sanctions targeting north korea he says the new resolution is nothing to write home about we think it's just another very small step. not a big deal rex and i were just discussing. not big i don't know but has any impact but certainly it was nice to get a fifteen to nothing vote but those sanctions are nothing compared to what ultimately will have to happen well it's certainly disturbing to hear these words from donald trump in the aftermath of a vote at the u.n.
security council that was widely perceived as a victory for diplomacy the words that we heard from u.s. leaders on the floor of the security council were rather diplomatic and favorable to peace and cooperation at this point we're hearing u.s. leaders again talking harsh talking about the possibility of sanctions against russia and against china if they don't comply with the new u.n. resolution if china doesn't follow the sanctions we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the u.s. and international dollar system and that's quite meaningful so now we have these words from trump downplaying the u.n. resolution and many people whose hopes had really been raised for peace and diplomacy being victorious well those hopes are starting to dampen the there is starting to be some some fear that perhaps once again we are in the danger of a global conflict or some kind of war breaking out and the crisis in the korean peninsula could be once again intensifying despite what was seen as
a step forward for diplomacy and international cooperation this is just another dip on the road or coaster in saying that every week it with the war record goes up very high than than maybe this in conciliatory talk some cooperation some diplomacy and then more threats of military force and it's really hard to know what to make of this yes we do have a positive that is the original u.s. draft was watered down considerably. it was acceptable to the russians or the chinese but then we have this fire breathing talk coming from pyongyang we don't know what the next step is going to be could be the real question is going to be when do we actually get to a diplomatic track that allows both sides to step down and to my mind that's got to be something like the double three s proposal that china has put forward the russians agree with but is absolutely unacceptable to washington it seems not only the white house those dissatisfied with the new sanctions joanne's not too happy
either north korea's ambassador to russia says it's been losing all to believe that the north will break under sanctions. we've been on the u.s. sanctions for ten years it was the u.s. that instigated the u.n. security council to come up with more resolutions on sanctions against north korea so we used to living in such conditions and we still managed to achieve everything we wanted if washington thinks will bend under these new measures and change opposition it's delusional and filmmaker john pilger believes the problem lies not with pyongyang. the problem is not north korea the problem is not russia of the problem is not china the problem is the united states the problem for the rest of the world actually now is the containment of the united states sections are relevant in the sense to this whole debate what is needed is a peace treaty with north korea between the united states and north korea and
the government in seoul but where it's all heading is the most worrying thing of all. protests have turned violent in paris where people have taken to the streets to vent their anger at the french president's labor reforms which are said to be adopted this month four thousand separate strikes and almost two hundred rallies have rocked major cities across the country and at the paris protest projectiles and flares were thrown. ah was was i. was forced out of her.
opponents of the reform are angry as it gives employer has more power to negotiate conditions also limits compensation for dismissal and moche is workers council also of course when the police boycott now reports from the paris protest. one of the big newspapers here in france and i know my son's christening of these all the biggest street protests to take place in heaven since he was elected president this year and people here are very unhappy about the labor law that he wants to implement saying he wants to shake up the job market and make it easier to hire and fire the now he thinks that. this is ultimately unemployment rate here in front. of the rates in the u.k. and germany older was we've seen by consumers say that they believe that this
represents the likes of the employers in france i know the employees for. this lowers anti social because it's reliable for workers. but it was a way of this law doesn't provide workers with rights to work doesn't give privileges in both the public and the private sector as we defend the interests of workers what conditions retirement should proceed to a full floor thanks eighteen million workers slim majority of french workers. and will significantly limit their rights to make it easier to find people even when it's not justified. for a business president he's come to power. to shake on the job not that. i've the love stuff but she. stumbled upon.
over the next week. just a few months at the helm already and president preval writings have taken a nosedive and his recent assessment of the protest as well that could deliver a new blow to his popularity. i will be absolutely determined to do that i will not yield in any way not to slack because you are not cynics extremists. gathered here today to protest against macron and his policies which undermine the very existence of the spirit is this movement is necessary it is the response of the french people who are protecting their rights.
they told us first don't forget you're in syria if it gets all the benefit second if you have to go to bed early t.v.'s banned radios banned cell phones have banned a woman can go outside dressed so that the only thing which can be seen is her eyes . saw that law if you like we saw them breaking into houses then they approached our house they were banging on our doors banging and banging the first i didn't open it for them but they smashed it down it got inside and smashed up all the things in the house. i spent seven days in the jail and then i was taken to the chief of the court
sentenced me to sixty lashes but they made me stand against the wall city jail. didn't in. my next year and i went driving along the main road when a bomb we're not ready for a fragment of the bomb hit my nephew and he died yesterday we didn't have enough time to save some people who called an ambulance but he couldn't be saying that he died even before he got to the field hospital. lamentation i must saw him when we were leaving on the blockade we had no cucumbers tomatoes apples or potatoes i have all that now thank god we get groceries and food boxes from the red cross we are very grateful to them limits i'm very happy that the blockade has been lifted. along with the civilians a syrian army brigade was trapped inside dead as old during this. huge it held and
defended several blocks over the city including a military airport a matter of just talking to the bases chief. so it goes on a siege was also imposed on the airport this siege was quite severe since i still terrorists attacked the airport another military points daily we had an operations room and everyone knew his duty to tanks had their role the soldier had his role the leaders were side by side with the soldiers we fought to the death none of our soldiers ran away and we defeated eisel and their bodies were in the ground even before the siege was broken we received munitions by air drop because all the roadways were under ice so controlled and using those munitions we fought to isolate one they weren't able to break any of our minds hundreds of them were killed all their attacks against the airport failed even when using car bombs and suicide attacks we faced them down bravely another front in the effort to rid syria of terrorism is iraq where i soul is also on the back foot documentary travel to
the scene of fierce clashes to film those who have been and continue to battle islamic state. something. that is. very serious here that. cares. for you. every time a terrorist attack happens all these people are there screaming i says so bad someone needs to do something against them and for me it was like yeah why don't we do something against them because it's our problem.
rocka is now surrounded by u.s. backed syrian democratic forces consisting mainly of kodesh militias clashes are ongoing as the terrorists are still in control of several blocks of the city we spoke to the director of the documentary about what ho team went through during the filming when we went to make this film we had no idea what we're going to come across we had literally no idea we started to build our story about three points are on the road to rock and the first point was the medical point the second point was the women's point and the foreign volunteers point. the one quality that you know it's all of them is the they're very altruistic
they're very idealistic anybody wanted to criticize them they would say well they're coming like foreign militias to fight a war that's not theirs but it says they mean they think it's their war. acting every country and it's like people are paying attention for one day two days and acting as if everything will be normal. now that's not what we were attacked several times snipers usually so the main problems around iraq are snipers and mines and the drones the little drones that isis sons with little grenades so they drop the grenade and groups boards and there's actually one that attacked us while we were not even on a permission yet we were about to go to operation. the grenade exploded in midair. so it dropped from it didn't calculate the height so if
it fell lower would be done. the most shocking story was one that happened when it got to be morning and when everything got to be peaceful and all of a sudden someone showed up with a huge sword and started beating random things isis just executed just through a few minutes or maybe an hour ago his three kids all of a sudden maybe two minutes later we heard screaming and he just started running into a space just started running there without a rifle just for the with the sword. strikes from the americans because they probably sold them on satellite so they were isis. in new was one of the medics said that we were filming. we are the only generation that will never say we want to go back to the days when we were young. and it's true.
for more accounts for one of the key battlegrounds in syria you can watch the full documentary on international all day next month. well still lots of stories coming your way here on the china today german media hunting for russian hackers who are expected to be meddling in the german elections and more after the. manufactured. public will. when the ruling classes protect them so. we can all middle of the room see.
syria. is a situation like israel and palestine is not a country where i meet a lot of people. though everybody agrees. is a very serious situation people have been much more then in any conflicts today. thank you joining us here for your news with the german elections less than two weeks away media outlets have been chasing down a russian for whom. it's time to meddle in the european powerhouses vote.
jaclyn explained. if you haven't been in a coma for the past year you've likely heard a thing or two about alleged russian interference and america's recent presidential election has concluded russian hackers intervened in the u.s. election with the purpose of helping donald trump when packing and leaking that the administration says the russians carried out connect the dots russia did it and while those claims were never backed up by any solid evidence just a lot of speculation and hearty assurances that hasn't stopped the world from pointing the finger at moscow and also predicting that the big bad kremlin would do the same again in europe the russian hacker scene is huge german security agencies and cyber experts are alarmed own evidence points to russia that's why we cannot rule it out why we are preparing for a similar efforts to influence germany's election many warned that the upcoming german elections would be a prime target for those pesky russian hackers so security was bumped up and
investigations were launched but even a year long search by german intelligence for potential russian interference failed to uncover any evidence of kremlin backed meddling or not though that hasn't stopped anyone from seeing russia as democracies enemy number one a recent article by the washington post examines what sinister implications there could be behind the fact that we have yet to see moscow's hand trying to steer berlin's vote it's just not an election anymore without russian hackers with one think tank director saying the silence worries him quote it doesn't feel right the article edges that the lack of evidence doesn't necessarily mean moscow is innocent perhaps they just haven't been successful or moscow is simply biding its time and it goes on to say that russia's attack me only be seen after the election speculating that russian linked networks may try to manipulate the vote count so remain alert the washington post even quotes a german security association that works closely with germ intelligence agencies who came up empty when looking for sophisticated attacks coming from russia we did
not find any evidence that there are more sophisticated attacks coming from russia in the pre-election period. but that lack is credited to germany's resilience and stringent new legislation against the spreading a fake news legislation that doesn't come into effect until october but you know whatever the article also concede that perhaps moscow decided to leave berlin alone because they're close trade partners something that putin himself has said in the past. is that we did not interfere in the u.s. elections so why would we create any problems here we have good relations with germany it's our largest trade and economic partner in europe but he is russian after all think when it's really only become fact when western powers make them so the clear message for russia is you're damned if you do hack and you're damned if you don't we discussed issues of german foreign policy generally with alexander knew an m.p. from dealing party. to the tension with russia began to escalate at the end of two thousand and thirteen early
two thousand and fourteen with my dog the coup of february two thousand and fourteen that it was crimea joining russia and at the same time the war in syria with the presence of both western and russian troops germany also has a military presence in syria with recon aircraft a tanker and a frigate and that contradicts international law because the syrian government didn't give permission we are also present in ukraine the west is playing referee at the cost of the ukrainian people warning that russia must be penalized but the west e.u. and nato member states like germany the u.k. and the usa are deeply involved in this conflict just as much as the warring factions. and you know this since two thousand and eight we've been seeing the end of the unit polar world order where the west can enforce its own agenda we're switching now to
a multi-polar world order and it is difficult to accept to coordinate foreign and security policy with other powers like china russia or the brics countries and respect their interests in the last twenty five years we got used to doing what we want and not caring about international law and now we are in the situation where this does not work anymore it didn't work in ukraine georgia in two thousand and eight in syria the west did not succeed with violently changing assad's regime on the contrary we are most likely the losers there. it's just so and twenty sixteen no washington university study revealed that most refugees coming to europe originated from countries that were bombed the second group is economic refugees when the west destroys other economies which are not competitive we then demand free trade and say we want to sell our goods there and if the economy turns to ruins we don't care about it because these are the states
in africa in asia in latin america and we shouldn't be surprised when people pack their bags and want to come to germany because they want to normal life it's understandable. england's football association has warned england players and stuff about using public you're in the world cup twenty eighteen and a russia amid fears they might be hacked is in a patrol. moscow is getting ready for the world cup in twenty eight saying the city authorities are working hard reading through the tourist friendliness textbooks but something they've already done a good job with is why far. anyone who's going to wait for a bus at this stop can use y. find.
millions of people use moscow's underground metro system every day. apart from why five networks that have been out there for ages have let's say cafes restaurants why fi is almost everywhere in moscow nowadays what if the russians did it on purpose like they put off wife i everywhere around moscow for all the world cup guests to use a twenty four seven all in a big to hack into their gadgets apparently that's what the folks at england's football association are thinking they're really worried about their coaches staff players and everyone else around the world i assume because they even sent a letter to feed their strong advices once you're in russia stay away from public wi-fi be it inside hotels or restaurants otherwise brace yourself for some
real cyber trouble twenty eight see if a increases cyber security of a hacking concern. so who would take advantage of that kind of snooping. my wife eyes on so let me read into the british media. the f.a.a. is concerned that sensitive information such as injuries selection and tactical differences could be exposed. actually this story rings a bell remember saw twenty four the winter olympics the biggest sporting event in russia's modern history visitors to russia to be hacked. to new smartphone to browse for information about the sochi olympics almost immediately we were hacked that was two years before the western world started blaming everything on the russian hacking menace so next year what a great idea bigg boss is go on our guys know what it takes to win elections abroad
