full of systemic deficiencies russia slam an investigation into a chemical attack in syria accusing it of bias against the assad government. underestimated. and do not try. sends a stark warning to north korea as his tour of asia now moves on to china. and dozens of royal figures on ministers all detained in saudi arabia and what really is a shame for the prohibition of chemical weapons the o.p.c. w for their report and then she went on to urge the council to pass a new resolution prolonging their work investigating chemical weapons in syria the gym's report not only identifies those behind the chemical attack it also explains
3:01 am
how it reached its conclusion it makes note of any irregularities it found in the information obtained from the investigation and then even through new works others talk of a new resolution russia and china working together with the united states to draft a new resolution but as of yet it's not clear what's next for the o.p.c. w or the joint investigative mechanism as they continue their work in syria the head of the joint investigative mechanism said that even if experts had visited the site of the attack it would have changed nothing in their findings and conclusions you also said the body takes great care to ensure its methodology is technically sound however russian military experts presented their own conclusions saying that the attack could not have being carried out by a syrian jet as none were anywhere nearby also no aerial bombing fragments were found now russian explosives expo's added that the chemical attack were. it's
3:02 am
likely improvised in that a bomb had more than likely been placed on the pavement. despite russia's concerns the west was quick to point the finger at damascus and edging it carried out the attack long before both the report and its conclusions and we spoke to investigative journalist rick stunning who says this report does have significant flaws they got a very shaky conclusion and even their report indicates that a number of various irregularities it is definitely an understatement started to report it sick knowledge that there were fifty seven victims transported to five different hospitals before the attack even happened. so how do you have a victim of an attack happens they acknowledge in the report that they cannot confirm that there were syrian chair over country who are at the time of the incident which nobody you know showing syrian jets the syrian air force says they were not going to take you and they were apparently another town and actually that
3:03 am
u.s. radar tracking could herb's that syrian jet fighter serviceman has no closer than five kilometers from conficker so in addition to that any investigation an essential component of it is looking at motive who has a motive for a chemical weapons incident in syria obviously it's the opposition and the syrian government has every motive to prevent or never to have that happen. no trump no war that was the message for the american president from protesters in seoul the head of a is speaks to the south korean national assembly in his address trump described north korea as a quote hell no one deserves while also issuing a stark warning to its leader. when i say to the north do not underestimate us and do not try this we will defend our

common security our shared prosperity and our sacred liberty and president trump has now landed in china for the next much anticipated leg of his trip reporting so america. is donald trump arrives in china on his five nation asia tour that's now the chinese president's turn to roll out the red carpet just six months ago the chinese leader came to washington and the two hit it off bonding over chocolate cake but trump couldn't help but be a bit theatrical during the dinner topping the magnificent dessert with a show of washington's military might we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and president she was enjoying it so what happens is i said we've just launched it in missiles heading to iraq and what were you having to syria yes heading toward syria trump loves his weapons so much he thinks they're the solution to every problem and when the threat is as serious as north korea all the other countries in the region must be armed to the teeth and prepared to
3:05 am
respond well that's the idea he's been trying to sell on his asia trip so far in both japan and south korea prime minister. is going to be purchasing massive amounts of weapons as he should south korea will be ordering billions of dollars of that equipment we make the best military equipment but before we make the greatest military equipment in the world the f. thirty five fighter would. he's the greatest in the world the greatest in the world missiles of many different kinds whether it's planes whether it's missiles we make the best the greatest military equipment by far in the world be purchasing it from the united states. thank you very much. now trump is counting on the chinese president to back him up as he puts pressure on pyongyang president where we will leave tomorrow china has been very helpful
3:06 am
we'll find out how helpful so on but he really has been very very helpful well it's often said that diplomacy is merely seduction in another guys so the question is will trumps efforts to seduce the chinese leader carry over and will he be able to strike a sweet deal for the u.s. so america on r.t.e. washington d.c. international relations expert victor gao says that trumps harsh words of pyongyang are unhelpful. president of the trump is. a very controversial president but i think from the chinese perspective we need to deal with the presidency of the united states very seriously so whatever rhetorics or other things which president obama trump may result to china need to stand firm on its own principle and do the right thing president on trial has been normal in recent months for using very inflammatory rhetoric about d p r k and i personally believe
3:07 am
these rather reeks of very threatening in nature threatening war warmongering for example is not helpful at all ever see the president on. need to know why allows the united states has been selling huge amount of military weapons to many countries in different parts of the world selling more weapons this may actually make whatever military confrontation which may happen even more bloody causing more loss of lives and that's the wrong thing to do at this very particular moment when peace as at stake while the u.s. president conducts his asia trip nato has backed up donald trump's recent promise to boost america's military presence in afghanistan by sending three thousand troops to the war ravaged country and daniel hawkins picks up the story. it's groundhog day for afghanistan an official announcement confirms another troop surge in the war torn country and while previous increases have involved american troops this time it's
3:08 am
a combined nato job we have decided to increase the number of troops we will not go back in combat operations the current level this around thirteen thousand the new level would be around sixteen thousand a role train a system of the wise advise reassure assist boosting security noted as usual russian oil for sending troops across the globe a variation on its european deployments designed to reinforce the fences in the face of russian aggression europe is close to a more assertive russia we are implementing the biggest reinforcement on click to the fans responded in the proportionate measured way by increasing our military persons in the eastern part of the alliance a few hundred troops here a thousand there with nato expanding its troop numbers across europe eastern borders every little helps now u.s. troops often make up the bulk of these missions but aside from the obvious places
3:09 am
american soldiers can be found even further afield such as africa from jew booty to egypt there are over six thousand combat equipped troops in eleven different countries across the continent and if you didn't know the full extent of those the problem and don't even top us politicians sometimes seem to lose track of where exactly their soldiers are at any given moment but i didn't know there was a thousand troops in niger you heard senator graham there he didn't know we had a thousand troops in new gerrard did you know i did not nato was a stablished for something entirely different however its mission has changed they solve the i think the nato members saw that it's all mission basically had become obsolete and that they had. undertake something else and another approach if they want to remain relevant in the world and as we saw earlier when nato had had more troops in afghanistan they stayed predominantly in safe areas even though some
3:10 am
some of the nato members particular from germany were killed that's going to be the political. decision. with the hope of trying to show a a us a picture of unity of nato forces. working on the afghan problem when in fact just working on troops per se as i said earlier is not necessarily going to be any effective remedy enhancing security and stability sounds like a good mission aim and also an irrefutable justification for increasing military influence around the globe. it's a busy wednesday for worldwide headlines here on the international today still to come saudi arabia's corruption push she's a royal figure jailed some of them before bush and clinton presidential administrations story just
3:11 am
a moment. here's what people have been saying about redacted in the sense that it's. the only show i go out of my way to find you know is there really. is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than. the c. people you've never heard of. back to the night i'm president of the world bank. because we're going to. send us an e-mail. in case you're new to the game this is how. the economy is built around. preparations from washington to washington. voters in business to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's
3:12 am
business like it's never been done before. thank you joining us here on ars he today saudi arabia has detained dozens of royal figures on. coles and anti corruption push. these arrests do not represent the start but the completion of phase one of our anti-corruption push eleven princes four ministers and many ex ministers were detained by the saudi and to corruption body the us president has expressed approval for the controversial move despite the fact that one of his former business partners was reportedly among those detained. jacqueline burger and fries

tickets rio and the ritz carlton became the impromptu site and luxurious prison for some of saudi arabia's most wealthy and powerful over the weekend it was a serious fall from grace for those rounded up including princes ministers and business people who had to make do with sleeping on the floor in the five star hotel. it's all part of an unprecedented anti-corruption purge decreed by the king and put into motion by thirty two year old prince mohammad the sweeping arrests are thought to be the young saudi heirs gamble to stamp out political rivals and clear his way to power and on that way he is ready to shatter decades of royal traditions by breaking saudi arabia's addiction to oil will not follow a country ever to be at the mercy of commodity price volatility or external markets we have developed a case of oil addiction in saudi arabia and his rise to power principal home it has

also forged a close relationship with the trump administration. so it perhaps came as no surprise when trump gave his backing to the so-called corruption purge on twitter i have great confidence in king salmon and the crown prince of saudi arabia they know exactly what they are doing. some of those they are harshly treating have been milking that country for years so who exactly is as donald trump claims milking saudi arabia dry one person is sixty two year old prince all what we'd been told all an internationally known businessman holding shares in several u.s. companies like apple twitter citigroup and time warner funding early enough trump himself has ties to bin talal who reportedly helped bail out the tycoon turned president twice in the ninety's but the relationship seemingly fell apart in two thousand and fifteen you are a disgrace not only to the g.o.p.
3:15 am
but to all america withdraw from the us presidential race as you will never win don't be prince our will lead to lower ones to control us politicians with daddy's money can do it when i get elected apparently that doesn't always apply to saudis pouring money into america trump is now pleading for the gulf states national oil company to float its shares on the new york stock exchange so while term criticizes those arrested for milking saudi arabia it would seem the us president has nothing against milking riyadh's coffers to fill washington's. it's been three years since the genocide of the yazidi is a codicil religious minority in syria and iraq at the crisis is far from over the us knowledge in the genocide is ongoing artie's pretty boy who spoke to use it is to say the international community hasn't been doing very much to help them. these were the images that shocked the world over three years ago thousands of use edis trapped on mountain jar in northern iraq.
