yeah mr john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are apparently better than blue. sea people you've never heard of love back to the night my president of the world bank though kate was really. seriously send us an e-mail. america's top diplomat suggests moderate taliban could make up a part of the afghan government marking a stock shift in u.s. policy there security. coming up to us the social media success has been singled out. pressured for appearing on hold back in twenty four. family feuds over catalonia independence standoff is causing divisions not only in spades you may expect but now it seems in broadly europe as well. china lays out its leadership plans for the next five years beyond cementing this

president she's power. where the country's going to have a. very good morning she just turned ten of the morning this wednesday the twenty fifth of october you're watching r t international with me kevin no it first today than rex tillerson secret visit to afghanistan is not only signals a significant shift in attitudes towards the taliban it's also left reporters a little puzzled too we'll tell you why play but to spot the difference here is the official picture that was released by the afghan government following the president's meeting with the u.s. secretary of state then contrast it with this later the u.s. also put out a picture you'll notice that in the after on the right a large digital clock in a fire. the state department thinks the photo was altered they say to
3:02 am
make it more attractive i think the afghan government changed those photos probably to make it aesthetically more pleasing we never like doctored photos but also understand that perhaps they wanted to present a better image than having that. but again that's that's really all i have for you on that or is there another story here that meeting took place in the heavily fortified a u.s. military base all though it was previously claimed it was in the kabul capital former pentagon official michael maloof exhibiting was indeed done to mask the true location well i think it was done for security reasons. what was taken out was a clock with zulu time and that indicates a military base i think what president gary was trying to show was that he held the meeting actually in his presidential palace but that was not the case it was actually at a very secure military facility and bodrum does underscore how fragile the security is in kabul if not throughout all of afghanistan despite the security concerns rex
3:03 am
tillerson claims that there is room for the taliban in the afghan government the very same fundamentalist group does not forget that america's spent sixteen long years fighting it's been its longest war. we are looking to engage with those voices and have them engage in a reconciliation process leading to a peace process and their full involvement and participation in the government there's a place for them in the government if they're ready to come renouncing terrorism renouncing violence and being committed to a stable prosperous afghanistan. next explains what brought about such a key change in america's attitude. but on an unannounced visit to kabul on monday secretary tillerson told reporters that washington things moderate factions among the taliban exist and that there is a place for them in the country's government so long as they were announced violence but this presents a bit of a dilemma as to how the us will be able to differentiate between the moderate and
3:04 am
radical factions since it didn't work out so well in syria. can you tell us what the total number of trained fighters. it's a small number and. the ones that are in the fight is is is we're talking four or five. let's not kid ourselves that's a joke. we have to acknowledge this is a total failure it's just a failure. this train and equip program has not. frankly lived up to what we initially thought hasn't lived up to expectations. but the u.s. is no doubt wary of the pattern could repeat itself in afghanistan now tillerson also stated that the fight against the taliban should still continue quote in order for them to understand that they will never win a military victory but after sixteen years of war neither side has achieved victory
3:05 am
so that could possibly be the reason secretary tillerson is now pushing for the political option on previous occasions however when the u.s. urged the taliban to negotiate the taliban's reply was quite clear. we call on the taliban. to enter into a peace process a legitimate process a real process. i want to reinforce to the tele been that the only path to peace and political legitimacy for them is through a negotiated settlement. theoretically
3:06 am
it would be nice if they could come if the taliban would decide to want to join the government question is will the afghan government allow it number one but number two i think the taliban have already made a decision that they're just going to wait out the united states they've been quite successful in taking over half the country now before it was far far less it's not certain that the taliban well remain and a moderate force if they see that they are winning. also this morning despite the u.s. backed campaign to liberate serious raco from islamic state all but now over human rights groups are concerned about the city's safety very much still in the restoration process to try to bring people back home again. the united nations stands ready to assess people with him appear in assistance in iraq and its
3:07 am
surroundings however at the moment we have no access and therefore no human. convoys or assistance can reach. the humanitarian situation is dire there is no sufficient water or health clinics and it's not safe as many unexploded eminence of this war still remain so that needs to be cleaned up first before any civilian can go back isis has done a lot of harm not only to the inhabitants but also to the social fabric of this city and now it has emptied it of doctors nurses teachers and all things that are badly needed by probably should add to this that the u.s. the coalition has waged a year bombing campaign that have priority defeating isis over the need to protect the city's infrastructure so now the lingering questions is who will get the
3:08 am
hospital who will rebuild it doctors maintain equipment will rebuild schools roads and all that has been destroyed and it appears that there are little to no plans for reconstruction and that is our major concern. meanwhile russia's defense ministry says ice shelves grip on syria has now been cut the just five percent of the territory there have been previously controlled seventy percent of the entire country before syrian government forces have been supported by russia's air force in their operations to clear out the terrorists and the process of restoring peace in many areas is now well underway the statement goes on to outline that almost a thousand terrorist training camps and over five hundred we nisshin factories have been destroyed but of course the battle to free syria has nonetheless come at a huge cost. and they can. read it i was more than a father to them we were friends and i always told them i supported them and i
3:09 am
would do anything for them. and i husband used to say that if something happens to me the only thing that matters is that he died for his homeland. a lot of them a loss of our pride there were times when i wanted to burst into tears in my mother's arms but she told me that i am a man and i should be strong she said that we must all be strong then i witnessed the death of lima and first son i was never left and i will get all of my family stayed with me i say wanted me that's what is called responsibility. focus on china now the changes at the top of the world's second largest economy that country's unveiled its leadership team for the next five years or so changes
3:10 am
maybe not so many well money not going anywhere as president xi jinping he certainly stays at the helm by the looks of it jacqueline berger is here to explain what might happen next because things haven't quite the chinese kind of do things traditionally but it hasn't quite gone to today. this huge great big party conference which is run. well everything sort of changed at this point this lineup unveiling is has given us a clear glimpse into china's political future just not in the way that would be expected not in the traditional manner as you said the entry comes from the fact that usually in the past one of the six men on the standing committee apart from she himself now this is the committee that makes all the key decisions usually one of those men is signaled to be the clear. to the title of party chair that's how it worked was she with his predecessor but this time around all the current members were born before the year one thousand nine hundred sixty which according to an albeit written retirement rule means none of them are young enough to take over for
3:11 am
him in twenty twenty two. sixty eight yes exactly and that of course fuels the already reimport speculation that she wants to hold on to the title of party chair beyond the usual framework of only two terms now the other option of course would be have to name a predecessor later on but all the experts and all the signs show that that's really not likely to happen so it's so unusual that the success that was hinted he basically is the story absolutely he's breaking from years of party tradition because while there are laws in place that say he can only serve as president for two terms his other two titles out of the head of the military and the party chair those two don't actually have limits not written down in law at least it's just your future job. exactly and that party chair and the head of the military those are huge positions arguably more powerful than that of just president and it's also important to note the just yesterday the communist party
3:12 am
added she's name and political ideology to their constitution which really elevates him to the level of prestige with other heavyweights like chairman mao the founder of the people's republic of china so all this really cements she's. power and his legacy in the country and while obviously none of us has a crystal ball we can't look into the future and say what exactly will happen in five years the ground weren't being laid really shows that she is not fading into the background any time soon and till continue to be interesting to see if he continues to stay away from tradition and what that could come in the future at what kind of cost that could come out. let's get the view from hong kong show we'll go live political analyst and professor joseph changes there so if you're listening in to our correspondent other say the things did depart from the traditional because normally as jackie was say we normally have a clear idea of who is going to take over from playing in five years when he has to retire but didn't seem to be an obvious person there because that will be too old
3:13 am
or will take on it. yes there are no young members who by the time of twenty twenty two can still serve for another ten years in the leadership polls so this means that. she's in pain bad light to have a third term or on this song or he may decide to choose his. successors in the coming two or three years or he may even choose to split the leadership positions by twenty twenty two and he may still claim one or two propositions for himself it is also all beers with the retirement of the elder the leaders. pay now has a very solid majority support at the political roles standing committee and the police. i was some of his thoughts his ideas were no written into the constitution
3:14 am
. that's an idea of how seriously his view on the world is taken on the course if you were to criticize that you become a criticizing the communist party itself with you says it's quite a clever move this guy is. really going to go down in the annals of history for china recently. yes he secured the title of being the core of the party leadership goal and this you said in the. congress. his ideas his policy ideas the thought of siege and paying has now come to. some out you don't thought it will surface part of the guiding etiology for the party apparently he tries streak sprawling nationalism and petrarch to some to strengthen the legitimacy for the party regime and he appeals to the people sneek for strong leadership in
3:15 am
a parent's free to campaigning against corruption is also quite popular and he also mentions for the very first time the establishment's of a world first cross military one yeah so talking very much looking ahead more than just the next five years the next thirty years. china would be in the world saying i'm so pretty much up there first china coming first the big power the big superpower the big industrial power but equally big respected countries well to tackle climate change etc etc some of the world's problems being tackled as well so looks like a bright future on the his helm according to him then yeah. yes i think he will seek. a pick a say for china in various international organizations in various international forums and he understands that people in china expects.
3:16 am
to enhance the nation's international status and international influence and he is expected and he claims to have delivered in disregard at the same time sir. to me china has ample fiscal reserves to spend on foreign aid to publish an oft international public schools very much under the umbrella of the so-called one one role in a shared. and establishment. infrastructure investment band the super bowl fun and so on. from hong kong they're looking on the professor joseph. thanks very much appreciate it. thank you for being with us to review what should around the world look when used to come with me in the next fifteen minutes in amongst the stories a you tube executive now in the water for appearing on this channel is a surprise years ago though a couple of years ago this interview i did will tell you about what the problem is
3:17 am
after the break. seems wrong. to me. these days. and it. equals betrayal. worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. what politicians do. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express. something want. to do right. this is what the. people. interested.
3:18 am
in so as i was saying before the break you choose chief business officers been scrutinized by the media for his appearance on this channel four years ago robert kissel has been accused of having a cozy relationship with c. and therefore bolstering our online presence the new york times has been sifting through the archives and dug up the interview i had to cancel back in twenty eight the same year we became the first news channel to reach one billion views on you tube delighted to say we've well suppose that since now robert kissel told me what he thought was behind us in his opinion i think users generally
3:19 am
appreciate its authenticity it's very apparent from everything that's going on on youtube so instead of having aspirational programming or agenda propaganda us people really respond to authenticity what you saw happening with arab spring for instance schools authentic the audience that watches this bus with them to sit with those who provided to them well but was the interview blamed for building up a tease ratings kinsell isn't the only person of course being named and shamed for appearing on our network of late british foreign secretary boris johnson on a week to go recently attacked opposition m.p.'s for being guests some a quick to point out though that in fact johnson's own father was among them. last week a european think tank compiled a list of thousands of people have appeared here on our channel branding them useful idiots. if you have to rush through to other channels proving t.v. audiences with content is some of the reaction we've been hearing. it's
3:20 am
a witch hunt for anybody that has any relationship we have anything to do with russia and if anything russian it seems you know the fact. because they were successful on you tube is somehow in bed with you tube and therefore google is i mean it's just madness like you would you chuck in archy's ations without any real evidence whatsoever just because he appeared on an interview. many years ago it just seems bizarre you happen to be the people want to see then people are going to watch it it doesn't matter who you all or who supports you i mean c.n.n. is no wailed why no was the clinton news network the b.b.c. is still voice of the remaining as far as brics is concerned russia today it's what it says. you know you are backed by russia people take that into account these new york times from people like the rich schuman people it is these are deep
3:21 am
able apparently you're doing something that a lot of people are finding interesting because it services people that because of some kind of brainwashing or yen or whatever it is that you do because after all that tie you got trouble acted by brainwashing sixty three million americans if there is propaganda i would respectfully submit it's pro r d because every time the new york times talks about you i think it's out of jealousy both your popularity. lionel catalonia has pushed for independence is dividing families across spain may be that it's not surprising but what is surprising is now that it's doing the same in france as well a former french prime minister who's got roots in the breakaway region is concerned about the repercussions it's all going to have brought to europe. they need to dismember a state like sprain this beginning gradually to dismember europe it is also progressive really weakening europe. box to the collapse of europe. former
3:22 am
french prime minister well miles that mincing no words when it comes to catalonia independence he was one of the most staunch supporters of course you have spanish unity and he was actually born into a catalan family well given his heritage some might say that val's should be on the other side of the argument well that's at least what his sister thinks she's feeling reus and let me repeat him on twitter. for god's sake for the sake of grandfather mcgee this is not democratic and neither is article one fifty five since when has there been such a horrible thing as the suspension of freedoms bowels isn't the only one he's been put into a somewhat embarrassing situation by close relatives over catalonia to get along the president himself was also left red faced after his cousin chose to make not
3:23 am
very pro independence move in the wake of the referendum mr putin is moving the headquarters of her company to madrid citing political uncertainty for dear client due to the current political situation invacare would like to inform you that we will soon be changing the location of our headquarters well we all know that nobody can quite squabble like your own family and when politics gets involved as well it may lead to some rather awkward dinners it seems that's how the vowels and the pitch to malls could end up. in skiing oxy. different. with all the nations to play in the twenty eight hundred football world cup in russia close to being confirmed writing to launch a brand new sports show very exciting this can't wait to tell you about it host and former england international star and column or meet some of the football greats
3:24 am
and looks at what to expect from this huge showpiece tournament coming up the i mean it's simple really there's a great country. many times before joining the world cup was announced in russia. a sense to look at russian cities in the cold. life in russia so we did this is a droite run relay before the confederations cup which was summit on very very well at a fantastic so i mean. so we thought we'd do it again we sat down with people in their own homes. in environments that i felt comfortable in and with the contacts that i have in the guy we've interviewed by all people of the greatest player to ever play the game we sat down at dinner with him in london are you looking forward to the world cup in russia who. think he will be very important.
3:25 am
to do through this who hooked up. in the world cup with france now a manager in new york what advice would you gave. also about the burden of being hog we managed to turn the pressure. as a motivation and they would have to do that because it's not going to be easy because of the expectation most football shows a technical football shows how long the game was he played well they know messi scored three goals christiane are rinaldo schooled for goals this is the stories beyond the guy so for example the syrian national team we followed to play malaysia syria at the moment is going through the civil strife. international team can still qualify for the world cold having not played a game in syria for over two years we go on the same bus after they won and they would dance and sing game we go into a team meeting before the guy those are all little things that all the holy grail
3:26 am
of football you don't usually get to say some kind of behind the scenes look at the game look at various issues there's a great story from the silly islands in the u.k. which play for the world's smallest trophy which is the same size as my little finger nail so lots of big names talking about the major issues of the day hooliganism could be a cultural issues behind the scenes stories chats with some absolute football legends but we're all doing a ton of filming and we hope people really enjoy the show. yeah and that's just a tiny taste of big names on this channel in the run up to the big you know football in russia for the twenty eighteen world cup but on
3:27 am
a high note then i will say good morning for that catch me again for next live update in thirty and remind of course our programs continue here and i'll take just a couple of minutes to. but also. do chemicals that. increase the risk of. known to.
3:28 am
is true independent scientists need. this. time as well as the others why is that. doing if you want to learn more. about. business.
3:29 am
time when the frances is broadcasting around the world from washington d.c. coming up millions of ransomware attacks have cost billions of dollars tax break into a network still sensitive information or freeze operations and then run away with cash or crypto currency my guess explains how and why this is skyrocketing also we take a look at infrastructure hacks canadian.
