road in response to the leaders gathered for the unite. the united. d. out there on their own when it comes to the iran nuclear deal donald trump called it one of the worst and most one sided transactions that the united states has ever entered into france sees things differently. i would like to defend the nuclear agreement with iran are engaged went on nonproliferation allowed us to work out on the fourteenth of july two thousand and fifteen a solid robust and verifiable agreement that enables us to ensure that iran does not obtain nuclear weapons renouncing it would be a great this could apply to north korea to immediately dialogue control and multilateralism these are the efficient weapons this is the only way forward meanwhile russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov stressed the need for diplomacy on north korea instead of the pressure and threats we've been hearing from the trumpet ministration they will be met with fire fury things will happen
like they never thought possible we heard the foreign minister of germany slammed trump for is national ego and warned against pursuing the interests of just one country. the country needs two more national compensation unless prosperity and there will be losers looking around the world today it seems there will be which puts one's own national interests first and is no longer engaged in the balancing of bunches between nations and countries of this world is even more. national and is worthless as a principle for a world for this world views describes the world as in the reno. ground which everyone is fighting against everyone else and which everyone has their own interests the united states likes to present itself as the leader of the free world but if you look at this year's general assembly speeches it seems like the free world is a little bit reluctant to follow washington's lead. r.t.
new york. over to catalonia now where thousands have gathered outside a court in both alone and demanding the release of a dozen. rested by spanish authorities in a crackdown. on independence which meant brit calls. well. ok. i. i. protest is chanted pro referendum and pro independence slogans the voter letter catalunya should say potus pain is set for october the first the central government opposes labor every way and has deployed a wide range of matters to prevent a vote taking place we heard differing opinion from a political analyst from madrid and a pro independence activist from buffalo. i.
grew up around them it's our legal it's against the law. of the of their regional law that is suspended by the highest court in a spain it was. young when it was their only of the house of their original parliament some of the terminations democracy is legal we have voted with absolute majority of the members of our parliament and if they have a problem with them or cressy they will have to justify it to international community because this madness natalee government members are being arrested private people that they all know warehouse they are being arrested and they're being questioned here not only against this funny law and they're being revelations it's even against. revelations the most important things right now. they have to restore their all of their under law in that very young i we're
not going to step back we will talk with or did so that show a committee. with which we already have thousands of treaties the main places that they are certainly in the things. and there business is the rest of the country so. business in catalonia without the rest of the country they are there can do anything so that is an important thing. is not forcing anything catalonia is a dynamic can treat with gives the net result to the european europe we are not defeated see terri and we are once a most exploited and i want to receive the most the international investment. there is no compromise on the river and they have to drop that idea to leave the referendum bar because that the referendum is not going anywhere catching on as
a nation he was. three hundred years ago they didn't illegality when they occupied us and we are just correcting we're just amending that mistake it's little surprise council and his bid for freedom has the backing of a number of other regions in europe where talk of succession is strong one of which is scotland. i think it's of can say in any year is for a state to seek to deny the rate of people to democratically express their will and the right of self-determination is an important international principle and i hope very much that it will be respected in catalonia and if we did a survey and there's a chance for glaswegians to stand with the people of council want to go. on the basis of fundamental democratic values we believe that whatever your views are on cartoon independence the catalonian people themselves should be the ones who have the right to choose the future course of the country i feel very proud and that's
well very moved to see scottish people especially glaswegian people living glasgow for a year to see that they demonstrate in favor of the government process that we're leaving that we shall have a referendum we will cover a friend and that we will we will vote for you i'm very moved to saying that in fact catalonia is push for independence very much encouraged by scotland so to attempt to go it alone it held a referendum back in twenty fourteen but fifty five percent voted against leaving the u.k. however following the braggs it of twenty sixteen when the majority of scots went against the national search and you talk of a new referendum emerged again we discussed both scottish and catalonian calls for independence with columnist vedic. for the catalans and for the scots the case is being made as an aspiring saying these are nations who want to become states now do you tend to think as an onlooker what else can the catalans do if their attempt to
event have a vote is resulting in such heavy handed approaches so it looks like it will be in practical terms it may be impossible to halt but the question is what next. with the german general election two days away news outlets are doubling it one of the most boring campaigns in memory especially after the fireworks at a vicious french campaign just a few months ago and many were waiting for reports of russian meddling to emerge just to spice things up artie's peter all of our picks up the story. we're into the final stages of this german federal election but one question keeps popping up with the question suppose to interfere in this.
expectations that russia would try and meddle in the german vote half and being met but that doesn't mean that there hasn't been interference the house just hasn't come from moscow german researchers say they've tracked down online trolls who've been posting attacks against angle or merkel and other leading german candidates while putting online and promoting support for the anti immigration alternative for germany party. a lot of the stuff we've seen in germany can be or at least inspired by the movement in the us the german cabinet meets every wednesday morning just behind me and after this week's meeting the interior minister came out and sounded almost disappointed that they haven't uncovered a russian plot to the ferrous the fiddle in this year's federal elections. we don't
see that putin has meddled in the election campaign maybe they didn't try maybe it's still common since mr seems to think that the time is possible perhaps he should look into the german government's own election software since it apparently only took warner i t enthusiastic not too long to find holes in it. we have found several fundamental errors in the p.c. will software had tasted fourth of july twenty seven scene including insufficient protection of the servers and lack of encryption the transmitted results the weaknesses allow influence an election results in various attacks naruse with fewer than two days to go before polls open fear mongering over a russian hacker if the election come to nothing perhaps with this election being something of a foregone conclusion it's no wonder that we've seen conspiracies and fantasies about foreign intervention and interference being
a little more interesting and more exciting to pitch than talking about the race itself peter all of our. latest polls show the two parties are local cd and martin short as s.p.d. leave the race however third place could play kingmaker should there be a minority government currently predicted to at that spot as alternatives. for its strict anti immigration policies we discussed the f.t. and many other issues in an exclusive interview with the german foreign minister cyclone gabriele and you can watch the full version a lot of dot com has a small preview of this to gabrielle firstly thank you for one ring out by agreeing for a second interview agreeing for a second interview is a big no no according to the spiegel yes that's how we would like to thank you can we take it as a step towards the taunter between germany and russia are you skipped the fact that i'm giving you an interview no i think we should get accustomed to having more
media outlets covering german politics we also communicate with turkish channels and newspapers in germany many people watch russian channels so of course we should pay some attention to them to make sure german policies are expressed in their content i'm convinced that we do need a new day terms with russia despite some very complicated disputes of the crimea and the situation in ukraine we can't tackle global problems without working with russia. gains have been made against islamic state in syria those details are coming up after this break. thank you for new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected businessman to run this country business equals
power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. strengths of the european union was very detrimental for the development of local and regional economies and only if these economies are developed and. recreate a livelihood for the people they will be in the final event see the stop of this i mean gratian from these countries.
back to the program almost ninety percent of all syrian territory is now liberated from islamic state these are the latest figures from the russian defense ministry on the ongoing battle against the terrorists since the beginning of the campaign two years ago russian forces have killed more than fifty thousand terrorists russian fighter jets have conducted almost one hundred thousand asterix and over thirteen thousand flights to eliminate terrorism in syria one of the country's main battles is now ongoing in syrian troops backed by moscow trying to eliminate remaining pockets of terrorists are to travel to the city to talk to people who lived there for three years and i still see each. i have no money to buy food for my children i've only been able to feed them properly once in the last few months shell exploded and killed many innocent people
including children it is or has been soaked in blood. that i would play with them i would push them and trust them i was like a mother and a father to go but all of those children died. when i went outside the floor to buy food and that simple my mother she was sick she had a strong going to heart attack when i was out i was injured by a shell must what can i do now i used to do all the housework and stand in line to buy food now i can only see and cry. facebook has agreed to release to congress data about adverse bought by russia amid the ongoing investigation into moscow's alleged meddling in the twenty sixteen us
election. we are actively working with the u.s. government on its ongoing investigations into russian interference we've been investigating this for many months now and for a while we had found no evidence of counselling to russians link to russia running ads i directed our team to provide the ads we've found to congress as well now as a general rule we're going to be limited in what we can discuss publicly about ongoing law enforcement best occasions so we may not always be able to share all of our findings publicly but we support congress in deciding how to best use this information to inform the public and we expect the government to publish its findings when their investigation is complete facebook claims that this kind of three thousand paid political debates could have links to russia they cost a hundred thousand dollars in total and the border between ten to fifteen and twenty seventeen the company adds all the protests that thirty minutes a link to quote in authentic accounts we discuss the latest with encrypted so the
farm that chris kids. well they're running out of time they can't prove anything that russia did anything that with the with the american election so they're obviously trying to you know put some news out there to make to try and keep the story alive well they're contributing to the russian hysteria there you know there's two sides to this there's president and then there are the other people and the other people lost power they were surprised they lost the election and now what they're trying to do is get back at president trump it's just that simple and what's happening now is they're finding that their whole russian story fell apart right in front of their eyes because there was nothing there and now they're trying this so it's going to be it's another bit of nothing they may try and use this as a way to try and regulate people like matt drudge or other with news websites to say well you're accepting ads from you know potentially from foreign people but you know there's no way that a news website really even knows who the advertisers are. by
hurricane harvey and the americans are now suffering the terrifying effects of a fresh weather storm the high winds and driving rain of hurrican maria already bearing the islands of puerto rico. there is the strongest hurricane to hit the territory in eighty years it's already left nineteen dead and dozens injured with hundreds of households destroyed the turks and caicos islands on the bahamas are expected to be an expected however maria has weakened to a category two storm. and with one hurricane following on the heels of another people are coming up with some rather surprising explanations from politics to divine intervention some miracle reports. with natural disasters ravaging entire
cities and driving millions from their homes some see them as a form of divine punishment i'm looking at all those and i'm saying here's a city that has boasted it's l g b t devotion its affinity for the sexual perversion movement in america they're underwater. and most americans repent and this used to repent unless new orleans repent they will likewise perish that's the message that the lord jesus christ is sending home right now but if you don't buy into the divine punishment idea what about the blame trump theory and see fall stands with b.o.c. to resist trump and his call him a manipulative racist administration how the whole say and katia i blame triumph of this heart of the government will manipulate the weather to exterminate blacks even if they have to queue whites some hollywood celebrities have turned that around suggesting mother nature has an axe to grind with trouble that climate change is
due to human activity and we continue to ignore it and the only voice that we really have is through voting. so. we voted and it was really startling. me watching these hurricanes now and it's really hard especially while promoting this movie not to. feel mother nature is rage around celebrities love making outrageous claims for attention but that's hardly what you'd expect from a respected academic i don't believe in instant karma but it kind of feels like it for texas i guess since we're a red state we deserve some bad karma too right yet those who voted for him here deserve it as well ken story a sociology professor was fired for tweeting that texans deserved hurricane harvey because they voted for donald trump and guess who else believes hurricanes and earthquakes are divine punishment. the islamic state well i just think it's
absolutely ridiculous i mean anybody who thinks that a hyper active hurricane season is anything new doesn't know how to do minor historical research i think there's been a growing trend i've noticed at least in america that this belief that whatever you like. or think or agree with you automatically hate the opposite entirely you're either this half or you're this half and you two are supposed to hate one another and so now we're at a point where no matter what anybody believes or says even if it's a joke they're demonized by an entire group now it seems that when it comes to natural disasters rationality and common sense can be overridden so long as it serves their political agenda. a black woman from texas who criticized the sale of cotton decorations for being racially insensitive has faced a backlash online danielle this facebook post off to seeing rule cotton being sold
as a decoration in a high street store she complained a cotton represents the hardship of african-american slaves and therefore should be removed from sale however her post sparked such a strong reaction she blocked her social media account what is really wrong with my post is the reaction that is receiving. i have to block by page because my facebook page has turned into. feeling that burning racism. a group of black students also found offense when some of the cotton decorations brings as a table centerpiece at a dinner hosted by the university's president he writes a apologize for the instance saying he should have been more sensitive political and social commentary to arms and crying like and if the issue is being blown out of proportion. plays it a lot of different things work days nurses they wash dishes do pate kinds of bacco turnip greens mostly greens the whole thing is just silly because if you follow
that kind of diet then everything that you pretty much use on daily basis would not be able to be using more if you're a white person you know these days you get called a racist ass where you stand being called a murderer or anything else average black person is just being honest about it is really silly is just a flower is not anything a race is what i think his race is abba high bar for actually what's being a racist if you are using racial slurs or you try to deprive someone of opportunity i think that americans need to kind of up our bar as well because it erases in that received. the news this is all over social media facebook twitter and of course. i'll be back at the top of the allies to stay with us.

the securities and exchange commission says its corporate filing system was hacked last year and the nonpublic information which hackers stole may have helped them profit illegally a government watchdog points to deficiencies in the agency's computer systems which put the information at risk the f.c.c. says that while the breach was discovered in two thousand and sixteen the illicit trading based on the information seized was only discovered last month the f.c.c. files financial market disclosure documents through its edgar system which processes over one point seven million electronic filings in any given year and as he sees statement went out without an explanation of the hack or why it was not revealed sooner. and of course this comes after a massive security breach was discovered at the.
