the yankees launched another missile which reportedly flew over japan again that saw after south korea conducted an exercise destroying a mockup of a north korean military bunker on wednesday. an oil rich area of syria's government control as the operation to liberate their sole province continues i would take a closer look at the importance of this region to the ongoing battle. millions of dollars in aid money pledged to help syrian refugee children is vanished according to a new human rights watch report on the case of that one and also coming up to news
the swedish police saying they can't cope with the growing number of rape cases in the country with children as young as three years old becoming victims of the attacks. hi good morning on this friday the fifteenth of september you want international with me kevin i would be most welcome to seoul and north korea and the koreas generally still trouble the north koreas fought a missile which reportedly passed over japan's island of a cargo several japanese citizens and several prefectures rather to find shelter once the missile was airborne sirens went off their correspondent in new york maupin's across what's happened. we have heard at this point that the missile has touched down in the pacific ocean at this point they're calling it an unidentified
missile we are getting some new details about the missile itself it actually traveled a total of two thousand three hundred miles that's three thousand seven hundred kilometers before falling into the pacific ocean and that it reached an altitude of four hundred eighty miles into the sky and many are suspecting that this is a response to the united nations security council recently there were new sanctions imposed on the d.p. r. k. at the u.n. security council north korea promised a response this is being seen by many people as that response now we're also hearing from south korea the president of south korea has called for an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council to discuss this recent launch with the general assembly in full swing here in the month of september with a big week many world leaders speaking in the following week so this is quite a time for an action like this to take place all eyes are on the united nations and on the korean peninsula. this comes off to seoul to launch missile on wednesday
imitating astroid going to the north korean military bunker. with. the pictures over the. you saw those capable apparently a strike in pyongyang and all of north korea south korea is also recently been holding drills with the u.s. in the face of six nuclear weapons tests now but north korea over the last decade some in south korea have also been pushing for the u.s. nuclear weapons to be sent regularly to the peninsula but south korean president. is now ruled out that possibility with more from seoul his. pill. president moon said he does not agree that offending tactical nuclear weapons would improve security here on the peninsula i do not agree that south korea needs from develop our own nuclear weapons or relocate technical nuclear weapons in the face of north
korea since this threat. to north korea by having our own nuclear weapons will not maintain peace from the green the new salon however as moon has already demonstrated the option of introducing different types of ed advanced military equipment to the peninsula is not entirely out of the question considering we witnessed the deployment of that here very recently that missile defense system despite heavy protests poll shows sixty percent of south koreans did support the act but to get a different perspective i sat down today with one woman who organized the main demonstrations against the deployment of the process of deployment of saudis south korea is not the makati at all it was not transparent the government did not get any consultation or agreement from the villagers living in some june as well as there was no discussion proper discussion in the policy and the deployment process
has been very untransparent we say that this is a part of the us people. so the official reason of deployment is to protect the south korea from the threats from north korea but then we believe that this is not going to work in that way well there you have it it seems tensions escalating on the korean peninsula have much to do with the u.s. pivot towards asia it was a pivot begun by obama and just how far president trump is willing to take it remains to be seen we spoke to former u.s. diplomat jim just true super leaves that the only going to touch with north korea is no. i think the next thing we have to see is what will be the reaction from washington in seoul and after this this latest a north korean missile test my guess is we're going to see more saber rattling more tests more decapitation drills more transfer of advanced weapons to the north koreans and says by the south koreans there's even talk that south korea now wants to have american nuclear weapons stationed on their territory it seems that the
kneejerk response here is to say ok the same sions and threats against north korea didn't work they continue with their test so now we have to come in with more military exercises more threats and then we'll be surprised when they keep testing their weapons on the other hand if we talk about diplomacy then we really have to be talking about trading something for something if we want the north koreans to rein in their program then what are we willing to do to back up in some respect against something like the chinese double freeze proposal which is considered a complete nonstarter by what washington policymakers. in the latest next from syria this morning then a battle on go against one of the largest terrorist pockets remaining in the city of did result government forces are advancing from the southwest and the u.s. but could his forces from the north east this off to syrian troops with russia's backing broke the three year old that city we talked to locals who survived the
a long. train to steady well or be right i'll sit in the market. the thought of. a snapshot of life there as it is will mean time tsunami's made some important gains india as a whole province where it's restored control of oil fields and a natural gas processing plant according to reports he's really put trying to take some look next to why oil reserves make that region so strategically important have you ever wondered why islamic states flag is black google can give you plenty of historic inside but it could easily mean oil jokes aside it's the jihad is dearest resource otherwise no oil no money no caliphate.
it's long been known by everyone after i sold airstrikes russian or american have largely targeted all convoys any visible bit of an overly sophisticated smuggling infrastructure the un were trying to deal with it they clamp down on buyers but islamic state aka the seemingly invincible all smuggling empire persevered various estimates suggested that at some point i solicit black gold revenues ranged from one to three million u.s. dollars a day and invincible though wasn't the right word dyess began losing land as well as the areas where they get crude in the first place. so when it comes to ridding syria of isolate let me go through some stones that
could be no less crucial than retaking rock up eyes on the map and the all rich parts of the country remember no oil no caliphate. outside palmira damascus troops struggled to take back control but eventually got hold of it and then moved further east also right here a massive victory for the kurds was to clinch the oil field near our house a come from and that brings us to dare as zoar province where there is more crude than anywhere else in syria it's here that islamic state is still holding off and to prevent myself from ever popping up in syria or iraq you now know what it takes no more black gold no more funds for the flag. still in syria human rights watch reporting that millions of dollars pledged to get syrian refugee children into school just haven't reached them so you blame the donors for lack of transparency
as ati's samir khan reports next a lost generation that's precisely what global power sought to prevent when a pledge to enroll all syrian refugee children in school doesn't seventeen. but a lost generation is exactly what we're seeing donors and host countries have promised that syrian children will not become a lost generation but this is exactly what is happening more transparency in funding would help reveal the needs that aren't being met so they could be addressed and get children into school despite international systems to prevent this over five hundred thousand syrian children in turkey lebanon and jordan are still not receiving an education going to human rights watch millions of dollars never reached arrives late or couldn't be traced due to inadequate reporting major donor countries the e.u. u.s. and the u.k. all missed specific funded targets they had already committed to the united states
is announcing our latest contribution new funding specifically to support schooling for three hundred thousand refugees youth in jordan and lebanon one step first of all i would like to thank countries like jordan lebanon and turkey who are willing to accommodate this people they need our support for twenty sixteen the federal government will lead to pledge one point one billion euros for the humanitarian aid programs under united nations that was winter two thousand and sixteen when the school year began host countries in jordan and lebanon on were both massively underfunded winter two thousand and seventeen same problem of course it's not entirely the donor spalt certain policies of host countries have also created obstacles in some turkish provinces the syrian refugees face delays in getting the identification required to. enroll in public schools and lebanon hasn't even issued a work permits to syrian refugees and as a result families are often unable to afford school related costs pushing kids to
work instead of going to school we're not investing in the mechanisms by which that you can get monies to places as quickly as possible and instead of governments being set up to do this in the right manner we are typically looking at outside n.g.o.s to do it some we can do it with good success depending and some not until we take monies from the military which is typically where most countries or investing is floors and security needs rather than into development needs it's going to this challenge is going to go over and over again so while they may have good intentions the international community may still be held responsible for helping create a lost generation some yahaan party washington d.c. also syria on the verge of an educational crisis with one point seven five million children unable to get to school or ted eight point four million syrian children
inside and outside the country are in need of humanitarian aid to investigative reporter joe griffin says that a lack of education could in fact spoil more terrorism as far as underdeveloped countries corrupt dictatorships there's an active effort to steal aid money and that deprives people at at you know the worst possible place in their lives of the support and the assistance that they need it look at terrorism in the region people who get involved with terrorism are usually the same kind of people who would be involved with violent crime on our streets in western countries their disadvantage use their people that need a reason to exist they need a purpose they haven't been able to find that purpose in traditional means like employment or study because those things aren't available to them so they turn to. once they tore into terrorism so that's a very real risk if we don't make sure that these refugees try to get.
caught up such a source of warning they can get a handle on the spiking number of rape cases we're talking about that i'm a lot more here now to international right after this quick break. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corners corporations run washington washington media the media the. voters elected a businessman to run this country business equals. who must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. anyone else seems wrong. just don't. get to shape out. educate and it. equals betrayal.
when so many find themselves worlds apart. to look for common ground. good morning from moscow so next the swedish police saying very cannot cope with the growing number of rape cases in their country that's what they've told one journalists who wanted to know why a man suspected of raping a twelve year old girl two months ago is yet to be questioned. well i just wanted to check to see if you'd like eight of the suspects or interrogated anyone no no you haven't. no we haven't interrogated then a suspect yet but at least you have
a name and the investigation will tell us whether or not it's the right person to. see what i'm getting at is it's been over a month since the rape do you know how many rapes occurred well you might think so but you have so many similar cases and so few people available what cannot cope with the workload we have three year old children that get raped without you being able to prosecute those who do it yes no the country's minister of justice is weighed in saying it's not right the police don't have time to investigate rapes he suggested that they should review their priorities the number of sex crimes committed in sweden but on the rise just in the first half of this year almost ten thousand sexual offenses were documented in that country that ember of rape cases is much lower but nonetheless compared to last year has grown by fourteen percent a number the swedish democrat member of the swedish democratic party says that police just don't have enough resources. rape is
a problem as we do but if the police had the right resources there are good police forces have either countries did a good to do it or give my group issue is part of the program when we had the great migration review to sweden to police for the next trip here so when the barriers came in and we had social problems and crowding with it the police once you have got to have the resources to do to handle the situation and resources for the swedish park police here and the problem is we don't. persuade is not alone the german state of bavaria has seen an early fifty percent rise in rape cases this year while the number of rapes involving migrants has nearly doubled we spoke to a member of the german left party who says that it's wrong to draw a parallel between numbers of migrants and sex crimes still there it's not really
any results who are exiled grades that are already been made a connection and even the number of migrants that there is straight and this is some kind of racist response team or which group you don't like to be wanting to. use primly nullity and you worry there is a saying from the nine hundred seventy s. and this is that it until to the best security politics is a good social quality sort of people are not excluded everyone has the right to work with and one has to tell. it that we want as a possibility to little dignity and if we there will be less community and this is our law point of view. the ears migration chief said the decision or border controls and the shan get area should not be extended he says it's because the refugee crisis is now mostly over. during the last two years we've been working in
crisis mode. now this is the moment to step out of the crises that i believe is the moment to go back to the banks and. these additional checks and they could not get dropped or introduced in twenty sixteen after around a million migrants enter the european union the aim then was to provide more security within the e.u. many see the checks as crucial though in the wake of major attacks committed by terrorists moving freely around europe.
germany which took it more than any other country in the block along with neighboring austria thinks it's too early to give up the czechs the german position is clear as long as the external borders are not secure enough there will also be the requirement for controls at the internal borders to stop illegal immigration and avoid unlawful border crossings we must adapt the deadlines for eternal border controls to the real challenges. so the countries have also said that they want to prolong these checks two critics say freedom of movement makes it harder for security services to track terrorists across the continent security cannot be
achieved only by border controls but it's a mean at least to know who is coming and who is going the problem is that many states including altering especially germany they have developed jurisdiction that grants asylum to around fifty percent of the people last three we create sort of. sucking the migrants to europe union is unable to unwilling or unable and unwilling to protect the borders to stop the influx of migration and that some member states including austria germany but some others as well and we link to stop. using the migrants it is a must if there is no other way to stop the illegal in the sense of migration to open the borders have to be closed i hope that you will come through. we will come back to reality and accept that border controls are essentially for the time
coming as long as they don't really solve the problem of illegal migration. so the different makes for you agree can we please or accusing the european parliament of censorship why well it seems itself to twelve of twenty eight works by greek artists were deemed to be too controversial to be put on display the big exhibitions of the brady sixty years of the e.u. . as the story. twenty seventeen marks the sixtieth anniversary of the european union the perfect time to remember all the great values europe stands for like freedom of speech difference of opinion and perhaps with a touch of humor well that's exactly what two european m.p. thought when they decided to organize an exit vision of a youth themed political cartoons but little did they know twelve and she's out of twenty eight submitted by greek artists would be rejected by an e.u. official responsible for cultural and artistic events. several cartoons have very
controversial content some cartoons have to be withdrawn one of the two organizers of this artistic adventure an m.e.p. from greece recall how all kinds of excuses were used to reject these works of art he said that. while. there are general elections for instance anyway the exhibition is going to start after the service and then see uses. in the low. local seventy it should be just the ses the old big set is reduced etc must be the majority and expect the values of the european union now that lays in jhelum and sounds like censorship stereos coloe glue one of the organizing any pieces is puzzled to say the least most of the euro we have to get in is now three hume or the sense of being human beings this is one of the
values this is a clear censorship very violent on without any part of said that of the history of the european parliament it's like i'm feeling really very by them feeling like george orwell just come to the europe we have part of ever speaking of angles humor she claims that's the key to her success or perhaps not when the jokes are at her expense i mean wouldn't you be that gloomy given all the hardships you is facing right now and these political cartoons just rub it in a bit more don't they but this somewhat does resemble the truth to be honest considering germany's leading role in the policy making. but. finance minister to towards greece and stop playing with fire and you can probably see that this one hits home for greece which is drowning in a financial crisis and has offered only the painful helping hand of
a stereo and cuts by europe. so in order not to spoil the party the celebration will go without some hard truths and biting social commentary. go r.t. for a go just a quick reminder check it out you to come for much more about the big story this morning pyongyang firing a missile over japan again it landed in the pacific i'm kevin zero in thanks for watching this latest live update from r.t. international. desperate for a single purpose. of a superman. training very young.
eight months of intensive school. reps. and they saved lives. i phone legion long term. to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was a kid still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i

up the ghost so beloved on its old violent past while today i talked to the prime minister of lebanon mr saad how do you view. the war in syria is threatening to spill over to its small neighbor lebanon division and radicalization moving across the porous border into lebanese society promotes a religious state could see this cold war against reopen. the country steer away from the threat and resume. conflict with the succumb to the pressures of refugees or militancy what kind of become a regional example of sustained peace in the post-war future so that the lebanese prime minister it's really great to have you on our show welcome thank you so you've been on a world tour of sorts you went to washington you want to perry's securing military and financial aid and now that trip brings you to moscow what exactly do you hope can do for eleven not just playing it but.
