see people you've never heard of love back to the night my president of the world bank so kate was really. seriously send us an e-mail. austrian voters move to the right look set to elect the world's youngest leader while an anti migrant party make significant gains in the country's snap election. also this hour an iraqi operation in the city of kirkuk is a declaration of war to say the kurdish forces in control of the area as the struggle for territory threatens to spill over with islamic states on the brink of defeat in the country and catalonia president refuses to clarify whether his region is declaring independence from spain as madrid sets a new deadline the self-determination.
12:01 pm
hello good evening welcome coming to you live from moscow you're watching r.t. international's could have a company in our top story this hour voters have made a clear shift to the right today and are on course to put the world's youngest leader in office thirty one year old sebastian kurtz is poised to become chancellor after his center right people's party secured thirty one percent of the vote and he could now form a coalition with the right wing anti migrant freedom party which gained twenty seven percent well its leader kinds christian stracke seen on the left here did look almost as jubilant as the as the winner when the first results started to come in both parties agree on tightening austria's borders and toughening up on immigration and gave similar promises to deal with it the white today is zero chance to take over the reins in this country and make sure there's a real change in austria. when someone says the can be more of the same and so you know we insist on a much needed and lasting change so the big question for austria now is what kind
12:02 pm
of coalition will form the next government from vienna his polis li sebastian kurds think is likely to become in its translation up also. as media of the people's party has given no indication he will in fact will display mission where he has said that he will talk with everyone all options are open now there are various scenarios of course being played out on the one hand you could have a coalition between the people's party and the social democrats this does seem highly unlikely because this has been dubbed the do it his campaign in australia's history and this is largely because these two large parties have labelled charges of espionage and racial incitement against each other the supposed needs then the freedom party to form a coalition with s├ębastien but what it would mean is that you would have a white leaning government how this would be a huge blow to the european union it would also be a strong vote against in the book politics but it certainly would be constant also
12:03 pm
of the same we see happening across europe where more and more voters are posed by . viva the political say they do you. think all of the arts is going to cut. the deal now many european leaders have of course already congratulated could he will become europe's youngest and leader and i think talking to people here on the street there is a state that these election results were predicted they certainly match the polls might you think of people on the left it's always the same. thing of the problem with the refugees of course members of the main reason for the growing right to your. programs. with the limitations or or service or effort
12:04 pm
g.'s in the new paper a phrase debate about the richie issue very my opinion was over sanford. in the election campaign. because it's it's some thousands of people and i would say maybe half of the talk in the actions of a waltz was about the right to things so. yeah but definitely it was something where the right wing parties gained a lot of games lots of votes well we also talked to the president of the austrian institute for european policy and security in vienna and he also believes that sebastian curtis is tough stance on immigration that won him the election he was responsible already for closing as we call it the western balkan route that led from turkey. up to germany to scandinavia he was the one who organized
12:05 pm
that this route for illegal migrants became closed and since then also the number of migrants decreased very much and then. he will not only be able but he proved already that he will be able to do something because this also was more almost a quarter stone of a politics that was overtaken also by european union and even by angela america even if she did not like this very much at the beginning. in other news tonight an iraqi operation against the kurdish held city of kirkuk has been called a flagrant declaration of war by the kurdish peshmerga forces earlier the iraqi army advanced on the oil fields and an air base held by kurds iraq has also confirmed that it took control of cook airport where tensions spiked there when the kurds voted for independence from iraq at the end of september baghdad says its
12:06 pm
forces were there to quote increase security both moscow and washington diverged by its size to avoid any escalation saying they supporting a unified iraq is. the speaker of the iraqi parliament described the situation one little we are moving closer to an agreement the arrangements achieved over the last two days are being fulfilled however if any of the sides take measures at those with the deal there will be consequences we support the presence of the army and the control of certain facilities but any action or resistance might lead to confrontation which in turn will seriously affect safety and stability. political commentator on the region high wasn't explained the major sticking points between baghdad and the kurds cook has always been a place where it was a flashpoint in issues between baghdad and the kurds throughout history when it was back then during the various civil uses whenever there was
12:07 pm
a negotiation between the creative movement and the iraqi government careful was always the sticking point the former regimes the iraqi regime tried to our advice cooked by all the kurds and bringing in their places this is on one hand on the other hand so cool became really part of the rhetoric the fact that it is oil rich has. made the problem bigger for the. for the for both sides could. but we're still to see how it's going to to end with the with critical today because it's not just an issue of of oil today it is an issue of establishing central government control versus having the kurds being present at the city. the president of catalonia now has until thursday to definitively state where the region is going ahead with trying to break away from
12:08 pm
spain the deadline set by madrid for a yes or no answer elapsed earlier on monday but the catalan leaders still refuse to clarify his position and their leaders in madrid. pushing for a decisive answer by the end it wasn't difficult for him to say yes or no on declaring independence it was a very easy question with a very easy answer catalonia has until a second deadline on thursday for mr pidgen mont to give a clear response which citizens are waiting for and which the rule of law requires . while that statement was in response to a four page letter from the catalan leader to the spanish prime minister requesting talks and demand to government pressure we heard from lastly don't back journalist in buffalo. this morning here in catalonia the catalan president push demand has issued in response to to spanish government and he was asked to clarify whether he had declared or not independence by ten am just morning and he has to shoot
12:09 pm
a response in form of a letter urged catalan in the spanish government to sit down and dialogue but he hasn't per se specified whether or not he declared independence and this is the statement that he issued to prime minister mariano rajoy our first request is to stop the repression of the people and the government of catalonia our second request is to meet as soon as possible to come to an agreement i didn't do it as a demonstration of weakness but as an honest proposal to find a solution to the relationship between the spanish states and catalonia which has been tense for many years this morning we just heard back from spanish deputy prime minister where she's urging the catalan government to directly answer whether they have or haven't declare independence there's been a new deadline given which is this her stay at ten am and if this clear answer isn't provided she said that the spanish government will go ahead and activate article one hundred fifty five of the constitution which would suspend the
12:10 pm
autonomous region of kut the lumia and let's see the events that followed this past two weeks. with. her. all those of us here as well i say to people that they should be absolutely assured that the government is going to block any independence declaration that might be expressed to declare a disagree with the law but you cannot disobey the law if you disobey the law you become an outlaw. thank you. about. you know. sort of catalan future is still very much on the search and then people
12:11 pm
here in the region are still waiting to hear from either the spanish or to catalan government whether it's going to be a constructive dialogue happening between the two parts well catalans themselves have mixed feelings about the president's actions with his strategy still unclear. it's what down one has to do and one to them to be clear and he's let's say he said the same thing as in his speech he declared independence and then suspended it. i think it was done to gain time to see at least if they decide to talk. over the power he's threatening article hundred. i don't know but i think that once and for all the terms should be clarify enough ambiguity planned a victim from catalonia and enough of this threats and depression by spain. ok well we can't get the thought of and rick focus from the separatist movement called
12:12 pm
cattle and solidarity for independence and joins us now good evening to you and rick thanks for coming on firstly why do you think the catalan president didn't clarify his position today. ok they got on but again it was not a question that to clarify yes or no or simply years were not here was. that. he asked for the president. to start friendly. of the position of the alliance which was to recognize that on the one of october because of the nation it means that spade of the. dead laying off of a discussion about the man being of the people of catalonia that thought he seized on the. fate of their spain. he hasn't called
12:13 pm
thursday now to clarify his position again i give a definitive yes or no we have declared independence do you think he'll clarify his position on thursday. i think that they're on first the would be the same position for the sake of catalan government insisting on that the one today look they want to or when that friendly with their with the spain in spite of having a strong position which was which was that. of government he was. government. must listen about the voice of the of the people which was explicit on sunday one of october and he was suspended the decision only for the reason offered. dana hope in a look now the question you need that he can not mandating this kind of suspended
12:14 pm
for an indefinite time. the voice of citizenship it was clear it was two million twenty thousand volt saying that we want to go out from a spin and we want to go independent companies in the form of republican and now. the ball eating hand of government to go ahead and door open as police are saying for dialogue but this could not be monday night. for what forever yes you'll have your soft spot as soon as possible then rick how long has he caught hold when would you like to see him give a clear answer on this. yes from our party we demand to. get this extension and to declare independence immediately immediately means do not give time to the government of spain to make
12:15 pm
up a geisha not legal one hundred fifty five because in this case we will be not an actor and an international actor and then use led to demand international. help or international mediation what we have the money is immediately the application of the results of wonderful software and they clear the independence as soon as possible it means before thursday ok again rick really good to talk to we have to leave it there unfortunately that was an revolt from the castle and solidarity and independence movement thank you. with r.t. now after the break we go to syria for the latest on the campaign to liberate the country from islamic state.
12:16 pm
here's what people have been saying about rejecting. the only show i go out of my way to. the really. hard to america is. better than. the c. . heard of. jack the next president of the world bank very. seriously some of. the dropping bombs brings peace to the chickenhawk forcing you to fight the battle. to do so for the tell you the gossip the public but. i'm telling you. by. all the hawks we. will walk.
12:17 pm
with the syrian army is clearing the remaining pockets of terrorists in did israel province have been repelled most of us i make state from the city of maya did it had become the terror groups to factor in capital having largely deserted its formal one in iraq well arty's arabic channel did get rare access to see what life is now like you my dear many residents there had fled before i saw was finally driven i describing they risked their lives escaping after leaving everything to these the mists homes and belongings were seized during i saw was brutal. i was jailed for six days for smoking a cigarette a rest would be made if they even smelt tobacco they also had a so-called morality police known as the his if i shaved they would tell me for that. i was arrested twice because of the length of my beard they would torture me
12:18 pm
cut me and feed me rotten fruit on another occasion i was jailed for wearing trousers instead of the gel appear very calm and. well some of the stories have been heard across syria and have seen to the residents themselves fight back women in the city of salah mia one example. on the fly.
12:19 pm
had made it clear. to me. because. i need to when i've been to the model been hard to let me in can because he did his own. meanwhile local officials say that some islamic state fighters have fled their home of the fact their capital raca under a deal brokered by u.s. backed forces washington supported the arrangement saying it would help to minimize civilian casualties that however goes against america's earliest stance on the removal of terrorists is. explains. as the push against iceland syria's rocka enters the final stage the coalition backed authorities in the city and seemingly eisel have reached an agreement to evacuate rocka the u.s.
12:20 pm
led coalition released a statement praising the chance to help minimize civilian casualties while also stressing that it of course wasn't party to the discussions as part of the deal people departing rocko were subject to searches and screaming by the syrian democratic forces who the u.s. supports but interestingly as the statement puts it the agreement purportedly excluded four and i still find her as leaving the city and while nothing is said about syria and i saw fighters the coalition did meet and at the end that is it is against any terrorists and justice we do not condone any arrangement that allows divers terrorists to escape without facing justice only to resurface somewhere else . terrorists have been hiding behind women children for three years and we are against any arrangement that lets them continue to do so so how do you endorse a deal that does exactly that a local official reported that even some foreign islamic state fighters had in fact fled the city during the evacuation those supposedly excluded from the agreement and what about that part about no more hiding behind women and children well an
12:21 pm
s.d.f. spokesperson came forward with the information that a group of i saw fighters had left the city dragging innocent civilians with them as human shields now the problem is what can be done about the terrorists who already left rocka the us to broker the evacuation agreement but their statement does confirm that they know about and supported the move which allowed for certain jihad is to leave freely well they now hunt them down and kill them but such support from the coalition apparently high. as its limits just two months ago when damascus came to a similar deal for both civilians and i saw fighters to cross into eastern syria washington use the same exact lines but condemned the move isis as a global threat relocating terrorists from one place to another for someone else to deal with is not a lasting solution to. the coalition was not involved in the discussions that led to the arrangement but believe it will save innocent lives so perhaps that's not the deal itself but who's cutting at that washington objects to you after all. the
12:22 pm
reports in iraq is civil counsel has issued a statement denying allegations that foreign fighters have left the city it also said there were no foreigners among those who surrendered to the syrian democratic forces be contacted operation inherent result for comment about this story and they again stressed that the arrangement was made by local tribes and that they would be against any green that would allow eyesore to resurface elsewhere that contributed for monitor dot com at the risk to tell us that this does reveal america's double standards when it comes to brokering deals in the region. bearing in mind that in the border region between little and syria when the deal took place the number of isis fighters was a lot smaller than the number of isis fighters which we have in the car so presumably the those who fled don't look call much much higher number. to that for the fact that. the level on syrian border area not
12:23 pm
a case there where the lives of lebanese soldiers you know the deal was made to uncover the fate of these soldiers whose families had to wait and been waiting for years to see what exactly happened to them all those conditions weren't present in this particular case which we see today and of course so i think that once again reveals the double standards which we have gotten very much accustomed to what i call was so america's policy in the region. the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has warned of retaliation if he is forced to register as a foreign agent in the u.s. he said american news outlets operating in russia will have to do the saying if the restrictions are put into practice with more his kind of popping. in the news now it's currently on the much pressure to register as a foreign agent in the united states if such a move will demand against the most media outlets the practice will have to retaliate applying the same restrictions on american outlets that separates in
12:24 pm
russia. against those which are being financed with taxpayer's money now there are currently three news outlets that fit into the category outlined by lab rob in his remarks and these three outlets have received notices from the russian government about similar measures being taken against them about a possible response to what's being done to see if fartsy is forced to register under the foreign agents registration act this could affect the way it operates in the united states the transcripts of the interviews could be turned over i'm required to be turned over to the government for them. or the personal information of employees could also become disclosed in a matter of public record turned over to government officials it's also important to note that in a recent report from twitter advertising its legitimately purchased advertising on twitter was somehow equated with with bots and false accounts and other information in this twitter report so a lot of questions are being raised but we have heard from russia's foreign
12:25 pm
minister that if this unwanted attention and pressure on our t. continues similar measures could be taken against these three networks operating in russia. so that said just about brings you up to date this evening we'll have more news for you at the top of the ad but he did get a chance have a web site r.t. dot com this plenty more to enjoy. what we want is to put an end to nuclear testing and then to move towards a world free of nuclear weapons and to do that we have to bring countries who see or who are of this ambition to understand that their national security doesn't depend on the possession of nuclear weapons. is still exist. rico's treated as one.
12:26 pm
hundred forty three called. the island is controlled by the u.s. government and some puerto ricans crave independence. you know. either in. their areas. still many do wish to join the u.s. hundreds more leave every day. with the country at a crossroads anger on the island is on the rise. thank you sir. it's.

kurds terrorists here's how this speaker of the iraqi parliament described the situation incur cook. up on. the situation on the ground is constantly developing we're calling in both the iraqi government and the kurdish autonomous region to show reserve in solving their problems we support the presence of the army and their control of certain facilities but any actions or resistance might lead to a confrontation which in turn will seriously affect safety instability or political commentator on the region hywel men explain the major sticking points between baghdad and the kurds. cook has always been a place where it was a flashpoint in the issues between baghdad and the kurds throughout history whether it was back then during the various civil uses whatever there was a negotiation between the creative movement and the iraqi government care who was
1:04 pm
always the sticking point the former regimes the iraqi regime try to other buys cooked and by expelling all the kurds and bringing in their places this is on one hand on the other hand so who became really part of the rhetoric the fact that it is rich has. made the problem bigger. for the. for the for both sides could. but we're still to see how it's going to to end with the with who today because it's not just an issue of of oil today it is an issue of establishing central government control versus having the kurds be present that this is. another over a headline stories this hour the president of catalonia until thursday to definitively state whether the region is going ahead with attempts to break away from spain a deadline set by madrid for a yes or no answer
1:05 pm
a lobster earlier on monday but the cattle on leaders still refused to clarify the position and now leaders in madrid are pushing for an answer benoit i'm with if he wasn't difficult for him to say yes are now on declaring independence it was a very easy question with a very easy answer catalonia has until a second deadline on thursday for mr pidgen mont to give a clear response which citizens are waiting for and which the rule of law requires . that was in response to a four page letter from the catalan leader to the spanish prime minister requesting talks and then to government pressure we heard from nestle who's a journalist in barcelona. this morning here in catalonia the capital and president puts demand has issued in response to the dishpan ish government and he was asked to clarify whether he had declared or not independence by ten am just morning and
1:06 pm
he has to shoot a response in form of a letter urged catalan in the spanish government to sit down and dialogue but he hasn't per se specified whether or not he declared independence and this is the statement that he issued to prime minister mariano rajoy our first request is to stop the repression of the people and the government of catalonia our second request is to meet as soon as possible to come to an agreement i didn't do it as a demonstration of weakness but as an honest proposal to find the solution to the relationship between the spanish states and catalonia which has been tense for many years this morning we just heard back from spanish deputy prime minister where she's urging the catalan government to directly answer whether they have or haven't declare independence and there's been a new deadline given which is this her stay at ten am and if this clear answer isn't provided she said that the spanish government will go ahead and activate
1:07 pm
article one hundred fifty five of the constitution which would suspend the autonomous region of kut the lumia and let's see the events that followed this past two weeks. with. her. be able to. get us here as well i say to people. be absolutely assured that the government is going to block any independence declaration that might be expressed. disagreed with the law but you cannot disobey the law if you disobey the law to become an outlaw. you know the sort of catalan future is still very much on certain and people here
1:08 pm
in the region are still waiting to hear from either the spanish or to catalan government whether it's going to be a constructive dialogue happening between the two parts. themselves have mixed feelings about their president's actions with his strategy still clear. it's what pushes them on. the wanted them to be clear and he slights and he said the same thing as in his speech he declared independence and then suspended it. i think it was dumb to gain time to see at least if they decide to talk. he's threatening hundreds. i don't know but i think that once and for all the terms should be clarifying enough ambiguity playing the victim from catalonia and enough of this thread and depression based pain. i think they'll just be shadowboxing till
1:09 pm
thursday he will say we do not believe that madrid has the right to tell us to be. independent of the soldiers local of madrid therefore we want to be listening to madrid and that way he'll buy himself more time and hope for some solutions but it is a difficult situation for him because he can't row back very far without committing political suicide becoming a lame duck president of his regional government despite he will continue to maintain the calls that this is as it is and the legal process that. the regional government is unilaterally embarked on. to another big story of the weekend austrian voters have made a clear shift to the right and are on course to put the world's youngest leader in office thirty one year old sebastian curtis poised to become chancellor after his center right people's party scored thirty one percent of the vote on sunday and he could form a coalition with the right wing and the migrant freedom party which gained some
1:10 pm
twenty seven percent of its leader heinz christian straka on the left here seemed almost as jubilant as the winner when the first results came in both parties agree on tightening austria's borders on toughening up on immigration a similar promises on dealing with it. today. chance to take over the reins in this country and make sure there's a real change in austria. when someone says the can be more of the same i'm saying no we insist on a much needed and lasting change yeah the big question for austrian always what's kind of coalition will form the next government with more from vienna here paul asli or sebastian kurtz is likely to have to become an expansive staff as leader of the people's party has given no indication he will in fact form this coalition what he has said that he will talk with everyone all options are open now there are
1:11 pm
various scenarios of course being played out on the one hand you could have a coalition between the people's party and the social democrats this does seem highly unlikely because this has been dubbed the do it his campaign in australia's history and this is largely because these two large parties have been able charges of espionage and racial incitement against each other the supposed needs then the freedom party to form a coalition with sebastian that what it would mean is that you would have a white leaning government now this would be a huge blow to the european union it would also be a strong vote against in the book politics but it certainly would be constant also of the same we see happening of course you it where more and more voters opposed by . i believe the full senate review wanted to delete.
1:12 pm
all of the arts is it a. good look now many european leaders had the course already congratulated he will become europe's youngest and leader and i think talking to people here on the street they've insisted that these election results were predicted they certainly match the polls might you think people just silly. it's always the same. thing of a problem with the refugees of course and best of the main reason for going right your lot problems problems with immigration is. we service or effort g.'s and many people afraid to debate about the refugee issue was very in was over percentage in the election campaign. because it's it's some people and i would say maybe half of the talk in the
1:13 pm
election campaign was was about the right to things so. yeah but definitely it was something where the right wing parties gained a lot of games lots of votes we talked to the president of the austrian institute for european policy and security in vienna he believes it was sebastian kurtz's tough stance on immigration that won him the election he was responsible already for closing as we call it the western balkan route that led from turkey. up to germany and to scandinavia he was the one who organized that this route for illegal migrants became closed and since then also the number of migrants decreased very much and in so far he will not only be able but he proved already that he will be able to do something because this also was more or less to
1:14 pm
cornerstone of a politics that was overtaken also by european union and even by until america even if she did not like this very much at the beginning ten million dollars offer grabs and made the seemingly never ending battle against president trump that story coming up right after this. it's. what politicians do you sometimes are going. to put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or interim. or somehow want to be rich. but you'd like to be first that's what before three in the morning can people get. interested always in the waters about how. they should.
1:15 pm
think a sure new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around corporations corporations from washington washington controls the media the media control over the voters elected a 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. quarter of an hour into the program your welcome back the war of words between the u.s. media. has taken another turn after the washington post published the plea of a famous adult filmmaker who's offering ten million dollars for dirt on the
1:16 pm
president let's get into this further enjoying senior. comes on the program samir a lot of money being played just to on this what more can you tell us about this media and. well the not so loving affair between a donald trump in the mainstream media has taken yet another turn taking turns sniping at each other trump went from calling them fake news to very fake news while the media continue to respond with incriminating stories i mean i've got to give you a question you say kind of you are shaking tacking our network i just want to ask you sir i'm changing from fake news now doesn't that under a very fake to this i know but aren't you. now it's been almost a year since trump's shocking victory but he's still making headlines for the wrong reasons even if he's not directly involved and even today the media continues to retaliate against trump with stories of his alleged incompetence administration
1:17 pm
leaks and generally any shred of dirt they can dig up and in the latest the highly regarded outlet washington post has published an ad paid for by adult filmmaker and staunch clinton supporter larry friend flynt who is offering a ten million dollars to anyone with a quote smoking gun that would help impeach trump but this isn't the first time flints pulled this stunt apparently he's had a grudge against the president for quite some time now during the campaign he offered a one million dollar reward for incriminating video or audio of trouble behaving inappropriately towards women but we all remember the audio recording of trump bragging about his treatment of women from back in two thousand and five but even that wasn't enough to stop him from winning the election but with no love lost between the media and trump regardless of who is digging up the dirt the extent the media has gone by publishing one antitrust story after another it's just been too good to resist and honestly after the latest go story i'm pretty excited to see
1:18 pm
what's next so hard to know what to make of this one bring us up to date from washington d.c. thank you very much. the syrian army is clearing the remaining pockets of terrorists and tourism or province having repelled most of us love mixtape from the city of dean it had become the terror group stronghold and after they largely deserted their former one in iraq our t's are a big challenge got rare access to. many residents there had fled it before and was finally driven though it's described how they risk their lives escaping after losing everything to be islamist homes and belongings were seized during a brutal reign in their. i got it i won't i was jailed for six days for smoking a cigarette arrest would be made if they even smelt tobacco they also had a so-called morality police known as the his bar if i shaved they would tell me for
1:19 pm
that. i was arrested twice because of the length of my bid they would torture me cut me and feed me rotten food on another occasion i was jailed for wearing trousers instead of the john libya their garments or similar stories are heard across syria has led to residents themselves fighting back women in the city of one example. on the. sound. of it the design of.
1:20 pm
this also had bombed. and i did the business. that i may have made. some of the what's in the seventy eight. and the because. it's a one i've been to the model been and how did you miss it i mean you can because he did his own. meanwhile local official say some islamic state fighters have fled their former defunct to couple of iraq under a deal brokered by u.s. forces washington supported the arrangement saying it would help to minimize civilian casualties about however goes against america's earlier stance on the removal of terrorists. as the push against iceland syria's rocka enters the final stage the coalition backed authorities in the city and seemingly eisel have
1:21 pm
reached an agreement to evacuate rocca the u.s. led coalition released a statement praising the chance to help minimize civilian casualties while also stressing that it of course wasn't party to the discussions as part of the deal people departing rocko were subject to searches and screening by the syrian democratic forces who the u.s. supports but interestingly as the statement puts it the agreement purportedly excluded for an i saw fighters leaving the city. and while nothing is said about syrian isis fighters the coalition this weekend at the end that is it is against any terrorists being justice we do not condone any arrangement that allows divers terrorists to escape without facing justice only to resurface somewhere else. terrorists have been hiding behind women children for three years and we are against any arrangement that lets them continue to do so so how do you endorse a deal that does exactly that a local official reported that even some foreign islamic state fighters had in fact fled the city during the evacuation those supposedly excluded from the agreement
1:22 pm
and what about that part about no more hiding behind women and children well and s t f spokesperson came forward with the information that a group of isis fighters had left the city dragging innocent civilians with them as human shields now the problem is what can be done about the terrorists who've already left rocka the us to broker the evacuation agreement but their statement does confirm that they know about and support of the move which allowed for certain jihad is to leave freely well they now hunt them down and kill them but such support from the coalition apparently has its limits just two months ago when damascus came to a similar deal for both civilians and i saw fighters to cross into eastern syria washington used the same exact lines but condemned the move isis is a global threat relocating terrorists from one place to another for someone else to deal with is not a lasting solution to. the coalition was not involved in the discussions that led to the arrangement but believes it will save innocent lives so perhaps that's not the deal itself but who is cutting it that washington objects to after all.
1:23 pm
statement. that foreign fighters have left the city it also said there were no foreigners among those who surrendered to the serving democratic forces. we contacted operation her and resolve for common again stressed the arrangement was made by local tribes be against any agreement that allowed to resurface. well to other issues i'm joined by political commentator mark always good to have you on the show can we just start with that last point there are a lot of claims that. leave. your view on the. well i think that after the videos that we saw on twitter and social media in general where members of the kurdish forces known as the s.d.f. were actually alongside those so-called. terrorists.
1:24 pm
showing us that they have. come and surrendered to these forces and they were actually giving one another smoke giving them cigarettes and such and then we hear again that there are certain deals being brokered for them to leave with four hundred civilians with them as human shields that's all information that we are getting without any confirmation from any side or from the u.s. led coalition or from the s.t.'s or any of the tribes that the coalition keeps saying that they feel i find that hard to actually believe because i don't have any tangible fance of what was going on i could ask a question about the number of casualties that have been fallen as a result of the campaign of the having to see the footage it's been bombarded by air rate so there has been a huge against that i don't even have a count of civilian casualties so if you don't have
1:25 pm
a count of that if you don't know what was going on who broke with you who actually was. doing the bombing because although we saw with the forces and i talked about that last summer was. that we don't have even evidence that says that as the f. was actually fighting against isis well we have is footage of soldiers holding guns and then we see this devastation carpet bombed city to the ground so we don't have a real viable information but what i can say is that whether there is a deal or not any sort of future event that would allow fighters terrorist fighters whether foreign or syrians for that matter to leave the area raises a lot of questions up to where they will be going and who will take care of them out there what happens like what would what kind of impact do you think that would have on security in the region if did happen. well we if you just put the map right there and just start looking where are the ways that could or routes that would allow such terrorists to evacuate there are only just two
1:26 pm
routes there something that would take them down to his door others that would take them. to the desert of syria and that's impossible because it's taken by the syrian arab army and then you have a bit it's a bit close to aleppo and the but again the those routes are cut to by the syrian government. forces the air as you're an arab army so the only viable option here is either to take more of. the eastern side where the house where there is a song where now there are a lot of bickering going on between the syrian arab army and the allies on one side and the kurdish forces on the other which still claim that they have the right to the brit for example that is store and take the area there so what if there the deal is supposedly to use those terrorist element that is or as a fight as a fighting machine against the syrian arab army and the allies to try and retake the area i cannot say that's the case i just have a scenario based upon them up they're not going to vanish they're not going to get
1:27 pm
on planes just. we might have imagined with other leaders and what happened they vanished they went on planes we don't know where they went but numbers of terrorists here another nevada you know we just have to enter their biggest. political commentator always good to have you on the program. ok more news and they were. taxed as a financial survival guide stacey let's learn us out fill out let's say i'm the strike at any or at least. have the fight wall street fought thank you for helping
1:28 pm
. destroy that's right bail out debt slavery. we all willingly accepted the risk of being shot wounded taken prisoner but noone signed up to be friggin poisoned by our own people i've seen that was nuclear biological and chemical products the said do not truck tires all types of styrofoam will polystyrene these batteries trucks there was a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between berm pits and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from exposure from the burn pits would really literally send a v.a. broke and they don't want to pay it so the way to the decades
1:29 pm
a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they will have to pay and. call for help and get the middle finger to move used to model is. delayed to know to be done . about your sudden passing i've only just learned. you worry yourself in taking your last wrong turn. 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 pair. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fun to view those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with this one to. speak to
1:30 pm
now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. welcome to sophie and co i'm sophie shevardnadze as well of deeper into a nuclear crisis on the korean peninsula other voices calling for total prohibit nukes bring louder. but can't humanity really give up nuclear weapons well i ask a lesson as or go executive secretary of the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty organization and participant of the discussion. as the
1:31 pm
world is gripped by the saber rattling crisis of north korea over its missile tests the ghost of nuclear wars bringing the idea of nonproliferation a new clears the road to the forefront to give with the un pass a new treaty banning the weapons fall together can be a nuclear free world ever become reality or the like of them ready to deter and make the world a more dangerous place. and it is now and is there any other way to control the dangers of nuclear weapons. doesn't deserve a welcome to the show it's great to have you on our program so president trump has recently rita rated that only one thing will work with north korea hinting at a military option and we've heard this many times before from u.s. officials as it just tough talking or is a preemptive strike really on the cards. first of all thank you for for having us on sue do we view. what i've often said is that a time wolf you know high tensions sometimes words go beyond
1:32 pm
thoughts i'm just hoping that this is the case right now and that if anything would be done to give the all stakeholders within the international community failed to fund a solution in the problem the issue in the d.p. . but why do you think that united states has. attempted and attempts to force peony on into something by fear i mean this guy's done to be don't seem to be easily scared at all. i mean we've nuclear weapon or the possibility of war i mean it's always scary i mean from the civil society view and inform the international community as what. the tory that goes towards this can be scaled and in fact but as i say once again my hope is that you
1:33 pm
know we live in difficult tensions pretty high and difficult moments and work sometimes goes beyond our thoughts and then i'm hoping that things would settle it one way or another and that's what we all are trying to push for you know we're all hoping things will settle but we have u.s. army chief of staff general mark milley who took even further and he's saying that north korea issue has a deadline that decisions will be made soon what does that mean i mean this is saying that we're actually heading towards or about how much time do we have here. no i think i'm just my hope is that things so far have been. set of straw the united mission framework and the security council think the security council has gone beyond the words that we hearing and then always fun solution to the problem in the deep it is true that there is no definite
1:34 pm
solution but if we must to get the d.p. to stop testing i mean all kind of tests i mean both nuclear testing and then missile testing i think that's going to be a good start to a solution in the region so international community has urged north korea many times before to stop its nuclear tests but it doesn't really seem to bow to pressure neither u.n. resolutions door sanctions work in your opinion i mean what else can be done to make p.r. non stop their nuclear tests. and. i mean that's a question that comes often to say you know what is the solution to the. two people in young problems. we've gone i think we've reached a sanction since the problem started in the in the korean peninsula and despite incremental sanction north korea has gone from one test i'm talk about
1:35 pm
a nuclear test to see is to test a year in two thousand and sixteen and then one huge one that has gone beyond anything thinkable that they were able to do and it's what does it tells i mean if you take a layman on the street is telling you look the sanctions seem to not be working from a layman perspective so if we incrementally pushing sanction and that sanctions seem to go incrementally with what north korea is doing i think we have to probably fund a way in what often it's called in diplomacy quest of diplomacy where we have you know. a way to put fresh air but at the same to keep the door open for discussion and so that we move towards a solution that is sustainable and this is what we're hoping for beyond words so some experts they believe an underground test would be above ground test would be a logical step for north korea to prove success of their nuclear program either is
1:36 pm
believed wouldn't go for it to the risks what is your take on that. i hope we won't go far enough once for the tests i mean you have to remember that it's the past the history of nuclear tests explodes in india. of bush the done window in the united states in nevada and beyond that to ask for a stop and a comprehensive test ban treaty from the limit to test ban treaty moving from atmospheric tests to underground testing but then came the city b.t.o. in one thousand nine to six the treaty to a comprehensive test whereby there's no test in the underground or under water so it is my hope and i'm glad you mentioning this that we push towards a comprehensive test ban treaty it's utter into force so that there is no room for
1:37 pm
testing the india or underground we talk about underground testing we shouldn't take it as something that is acceptable and the most that it takes will be the red light i think every test today is a red line and the red line is we have to get the streets into force so that we leave no room for underground or atmospheric tests or underwater testing and that's what we're pushing for and that's why we have to finish what we started which is finishing the city beauty by getting his entree into force a soon as possible so you have posted a motion graphic on twitter which actually shows a simulation of the aftermath of a potential test over the pacific some years or found this video chilling some misleading could you give me am more detailed idea of the consequences of such a tast. yes you're right i did post some treats a simulation of a possible tests indeed. that was in response of the request of many journalists
1:38 pm
and experts who were asking us should we have today and that was very tests what would be the consequences what we did we basically simulate the weather forecasts how the nuts want to fix tests could be taken and the isotope be moved with weather and condition and be spread around same as we did for fukushima when we had difficulty my accident in two thousand and eleven it's the same thing the same type of simulation we put together it is two of that it does cause some concern because we get back a people say but this is this is scary i mean there's norse things carry on this map this map was just an indication on how things can be transported with weather condition around the planet and that's what we did and that's what we put forward in the for the international committee of laymen to be able to see as well to being a way to move forward this day in communication so full well that the consequences
1:39 pm
of the test can tell me they get the consequences. i mean consequence of an atmospheric test will be certainly more damaging than what we've never seen so far with underground testing undergone tests and we talk about you know joe logical stress and induce a quick that might up and in the event of cracking in the ground that could lead seeps through some radio isotope they come in very minimal quantity or minimal level but if you talk about a month for the tests you just have to go to kazakhstan and then see what the consequence could be have been to sydney politics and then the consequences can be and often very damaging because you talked about and that's one of the. most that it tests and then condition that in the head and in affecting the vitamin more than
1:40 pm
if they were in the gulf not that i'm justifying that we should do tests on the ground i'm just saying that the consequence in the head for the environment more damaging than what would come on the ground. in the us as to stanchest opponent of north korea's nuclear tests yet it has never ratified the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty how much credibility does a us hold one it six to prevent others from nuclear testing. it is true you talk about the u.s. not having about the five the comprehensive test ban treaty i mean this is where often called. democracy i mean that's that's a side of democracy that people should take forward i mean a leader can be willing to consider the sea to be to that if you catch them but if he doesn't want the number it doesn't have the numbers of senate or of the parliament it's difficult for him to pursue his policy as he wishes so this is a situation in the united states having said this the united sit does contribute
1:41 pm
tremendously to the comprehensive test ban treaty for they've completed that international monitoring system facility on the territory i think there are one or two remaining and we're working towards that and the participating in the technical work of the comprehensive test ban treaty it is my hope that the condition putting the united states into saying that anything that contributes to the national security thereby in i'm yet to prove that the c t b t is indeed contributing to u.s. national security and i think if we must to do that as we trying of best's would put the united states in the condition of that if the kitchen of the comprehensive test ban treaty so yes ratification on the tray would most likely set a good example for other states including china even iran if those countries join us security will benefit so why aren't they americans ratifying this treaty.
1:42 pm
why the a three men in country are not about to fire the treaty i think it's not a million dollar question but i mean it's a question and the nun said that i get some time from i mean schooled kids i mean kids are telling me often but it was desirable why don't you bring bring them into the room and then get them to not defy all of the same time and they unset to this question is often because we tell them. you know they hear from the civil society or from reading that us or chinese waiting from us israelis waits in from iran and iran is waiting and so and so forth so what they're. of people who feel mind this in look bring them all in one room and then get them to sign at the same time so there won't be a problem of what up to five first and who doesn't it's so i mean that's probably an idealistic scenario but having said this often said that we have eight countries that all of the response a bit off about to find
1:43 pm
a c t b t and then they should go for it there's no eight hundred pound buddha or one hundred fifty pound body that eight countries that's about to ficus and it's necessary for them to into force of this treaty and we're working closely or i would say pretty closely with some of them and we wish to do with all of them to get this fifteen to force the soonest that would leave no room for nuclear testing . we're going to take a short break right now in lower back we'll continue discussing international nonproliferation efforts stay with us. donald trump's decision to start the process to end the iran nuclear deal is
1:44 pm
a big deal is this the path toward still another war also the so-called russia gate scandal takes a bizarre turn it's almost impossible to believe. something seemed wrong long. haul. me. to shape out these days to come to the ticket and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us is it actually just pull along on the only show i go out of my way to launch you know what we want to do some really packs a punch. is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently
1:45 pm
better than food and things that i see people you've never heard of love are down to the night when i'm president of the world bank so very. many seriously send us an email. and we're back with less state as our book secretary secretary of the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty organization discussing nuclear weapons and their role in the world today so the truck white house wants to disavow and toughen up the iran deal which actually helped tolt tehran's nuclear weapons program if it does it what
1:46 pm
would that mean for nonproliferation. the iran do. was one of the few if i can put it this way agreement for nearly a decade in nonproliferation or arms control. it is my hope that everything will be gone by doors to call does work key in that agreement to find a way to pursue it to give the confidence necessary in the international community to move on with other treaty like to see to be see the f.m.c. see in the arms control that seek to establish the peaceful environment that this world needs today and that is my hope and. i'm positive that you know that's always solution to be find two issues and then i think the same way it concluded
1:47 pm
this deal the same way they can find ways to continue it the best way for the international community and or parties to our nuclear weapons to only insurance that countries like north korea or iran can count on for the safety of their regimes against intervention what can be more solid than a new. i hope that nuclear weapon are not the only assurance for countries as you you're asking i think what could be more assuring it's the conducive environment that one could create for people to feel at ease that their security and their national security is not threatened by their neighbors or the international community how do we do that i think that's why multilateral diplomacy exists and that's why we have reason and framework you know asian framework. western framework african framework and then
1:48 pm
you name it i think we need multilateral and regional diplomacy to be able to put the countries in the position where they feel comfortable that there is no threats by all means next to them or coming from far and that's what we need and that's why we have multilateral diplomacy for. ten years and they were ok with india and pakistan having nuclear weapons right why not north korea why not just admit it and move on with that. i mean why not admitted the north korea's nuclear weapon like india and pakistan and move on with it i think you are asking a pretty difficult question but i mean my answer to that would be. for nonproliferation and we aiming for design money in the end we cannot in the framework of the nonproliferation treaty consider more countries that are coming today with
1:49 pm
a nuclear weapon and the risk that we have is that others will see if this country has managed to do it under this kind of framework why not me and who wants that what we want is to put an end to nuclear testing and then to move towards a world free of nuclear weapons and to do that we have to bring countries who seek or who of this ambition to understand that the national security doesn't depend on the possession of nuclear weapons and i just want to say if you take a toddler a toddler would want to sit walk sit crawl before he walks if he walks because at crawling it would not have solid legs to work in a sustainable fashion and putting the movement towards a world without nuclear weapons on the same way we need solid ground that include down through into force of the comprehensive test ban treaty and the legally binding one so will be creating the conditions that are ripe for a world without nuclear weapon scimitar doctrines of corporal powerhouses depend on

having nuclear arsenals policies are made based on having nuclear arsenals nukes provide checks and balances in global politics weren't lowing them and getting gray of them bring more instability make politics a predictable. if. you ask somebody from time a little country. somebody that would not say that having nuclear weapons bring stability because i don't think that some reason where that is nor nuclear weapon then no nuclear weapon are not stable because that is weapon or stable because they aren't a weapon i think we're moving towards bringing peace and stability for this world for displaying that and bringing peace and stability is about also stopping
1:51 pm
anything that leads to a. you know race and then achieve design woman and that's what we want and that's what we're working towards and working towards this the international community has been for treaties like the comprehensive test ban treaty the f.m. city dificid months in a kind of treaty and many other treaties that's come together as we move towards achieving this world that we dreaming for and dreaming dreaming for a world without nuclear weapons and i'm hoping that we'll achieve this in our lifetime and people would not see nuclear weapon as a means for stability by any means so i think that we have the opportunity to do that because now more than ever we have a big risk for the start of a new arms race again so the nobel prize winners managed to push a treaty on their profit bishan on the nuclear weapons in the un but not the nuclear club members backed it with the us calling the initiative unfit for today's
1:52 pm
security situation and russia calling it dangerous with that the signature self they have no way is this treaty powerless and then what's the point of it. i would just say you talk about the nuclear the nobel prize a fake i would try and courts what exactly the nobel committee said they say they've awarded this nobel prize knowing that it will not achieve the stopping nuclear weapon today but it's a message that they wanted to send to the international community but beyond the messes what we want is to crack the code design them and the practical design one takes into account control treaties that are here the comprehensive test ban treaty being one of them of used the example off the top i think we have to finish what we started one of the things we started more than twenty years ago is
1:53 pm
a comprehensive test ban treaty its session all hanging fruit if you come how the world free from nuclear testing how can you achieve a world free from nuclear weapons north korea cannot be testing still and then we talking about the world free from nuclear weapons north korea like any other countries its only country that is testing today that must stop this stop nuclear testing stop missile testing and then create the conditions for the international community to see them are spotless and now so we can move towards a world free without the free from nuclear weapons and that's what we seek and that's what we want to achieve so does a comprehensive ban on nuclear tests as well as state and nonproliferation make this new hero and try mission training redundant i mean we already have a structure in place that controls nuclear weapons resident reasonably well. i mean when the prohibition. on nuclear weapon makes.
1:54 pm
gives a redundancy to the city bt and bt. i wouldn't tick one versus the other. i think what we hear from civil society and from the proponent of the prohibition of nuclear weapon is the perceived frustration that they're seeing in what this does nor movement towards design a month but precisely movement towards dissolve money includes down through into force of the comprehensive test ban treaty to create the condition of trust that business is city for countries to come together and then discuss how they can effectively and practically achieve disarmament and this is important when i use the toddler's example i think it might look a little bit funny but i mean the reality is to have something sustainable we have to prepare the ground for it and to prepare the ground for an effective and
1:55 pm
practical design a month we need to achieve down through into force of the comprehensive test ban treaty and bring many of the arms control treaty that are pending life if we bring them live we cleared the condition and we have to move on them because if you don't move on downstream to force of the comprehensive test ban treaty you effectively give the perception that nothing is moving towards nonproliferation and design and that's a risk and that's probably what we facing today and this is why i still have to finish what we started the comprehensive test ban treaty is a norse roots induct mush right mrs herbert thank you very much for being with us today we were talking to you last seen as or about executive secretary of the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty organization and participant of the valdai discussion club about the nuclear crisis on the korean peninsula and whether a world without new is actually possible that's it for at this latest edition of sophie and co i will say next.
