good morning thanks for watching revici did run the world is kevin i am with you this hour here are international first on donald trump's song the final stop nerves lengthy asian to ease in the philippines for the s.c. and summit of southeast asia leaders later monday's you to hold his first formal talks as president on the streets of the capital of the pictures being far from. that again i'm a little over somebody while of much as good as it is visit clashes with police officers results using water cannons to disperse the crowd at some points but to the summit of the business in hand this is one thing that should be second nature to donald trump the gatherings like this is of course the signature move the presidential handshake but it proved to be a bit of a challenge when he took to the stage with his fellow leaders. pretty hard right
over left one two three. seamless almost so but. in fairness to trump he wasn't the only leader to struggle with the graphy there a bit. far more important business there was u.s. leaders positioning himself as a peacemaker in the region's trouble spots including the disputed territorial claims of the resource rich south china sea and the deer chewed it looks at his next attempt and promoting a services abroad. u.s. president donald trump the mediator and arbitrator well you know. or at least outside he seems to think let's have a look at the conflicts he's dabbling in. trying to suggest
he's the one to settle the ongoing dispute involving china vietnam the philippines malaysia and and i that's been going on for decades but one of the sides involved thinks trump should keep his nose out of the business one has would like us to confront china and the rest of the world on so many issues the south china sea is better left untouched nobody can afford to go to war deter is certainly not convinced and maybe he's right. there are at least two major conflicts currently brewing in this region and the. longest and bloodiest one is between israel and palestine and of course trump wants to be the man in the middle the palestinians and israelis must work together to reach an agreement but i would love to be a mediator or an arbitrator or a facilitator the problem is he appears to be playing games with both sides promising one thing to palestinians and almost denying he made those promises to israel is this really how mediation works.
staying in the region america's allies have been having a bit of a spot of late early the summer saudi arabia the united arab emirates egypt and bahrain cut off diplomatic ties with qatar and started an economic boycott they cited qatari funding of terrorist groups and later it increasingly close relationship with iran as their reasons trump though claimed he was ready to roll up his sleeves and sorted out i can help mediate between carter and in particular the u.a.e. and saudi arabia i would be willing to do so and i think you'd have a deal worked out very quickly i think it's something that's going to get solved fairly easily but nearly six months since the fallout nobody's talking. so if mediations not proving his forte what about ruffling up those crises already settled the iran nuclear deal is now in jeopardy thanks to trump decertifying it
the very deal that took a decade of tense talks and negotiations by six nations to agree this is a difficult. game this is not up to any single country to terminate president of united states as many powers not this one renouncing it would be a great dialogue control and multilateralism these are the official weapons. perhaps the donald's biggest test has been north korea and again he boasted had achieved what his predecessors. failed to well had all of us are going to be able to handle it will be it will be handled we handle everything trumps recipe for success threaten threaten and threaten again we are totally prepared for the second option totally destroy north korea that's called the military option they will be met with fire fury top with huge military drills and selling weapons to
every nation he could during his recent asia adventure prime minister of japan is going to be purchasing massive amounts of military equipment as he should he will shoot them out of the sky when he completes the purchase of lots of additional military equipment from the united states the president and i have agreed they will be buying a which they want and which they need and everybody thinks it makes a lot of sense we make the greatest military equipment in the world and south korea will be ordering billions of dollars of that equipment which frankly for them makes a lot of sense if we make the greatest missiles in the world greatest planes in the world it is commercial interest in the world so we would like to buy from us as little trumps a good businessman but also we also at the beginning would anyone call him a good mediator and all but try to let the rich altie. donald trump's offers more about scoring points for the u.s.
than actually funny diplomatic solutions. is more a businessman i mean he. would look at what he has been doing what he has been saying everything is calculated in terms of some sort of tangible gains for the united states that causes problems for countries dealing with the united states because he was american first american always wins that means that the other party is very loose. sees most of his diplomatic activities in terms of monetary gains in terms of economic gains will be in august rather than contribution ng something wall in tripoli to the group of commons. news next this morning that russia and the kurdish military have come to an unprecedented deal that could allow dozens of children to be brought home after the parents join islamic state fighters in syria more of our chief correspondent
scott more. with isis now on its last legs flights like this becoming a regular thing russian citizens looting the wives and children of isis fighters being collected wherever they're found whether they've surrendered or been captured and taken back to russia to rejoin their families it isn't often that a high ranking syrian could visits the russian airbase in syria but this is a special exception tens of thousands of foreigners joined isis among them the wives and children of jihad just who flocked to the caliphate from dozens and dozens of countries many came from russia nineteen russian speaking woman along with twenty six children were being held by the y.p. they came from all around from rocka they had a daughter my idea it took time to confirm their identities and to secure their
release. the deal worked out between the russians and the kurds is unprecedented the smocks the single largest repatriation of isis family members since the terror group appeared. that it was dangerous to flee directly for three or four months we try to find a way out of syria my husband wanted to escape as well but it's impossible for iran and i was in my i'd been bombs were falling on us like rain i happened to be buried under the rubble four times with my child there never was any civilization no economy like it was always described there were only courts and only if you had a high rank would be on your side otherwise you were nothing at all from the very beginning i wanted to leave syria but didn't know how then i ran away from a husband and tried to reach the kurds and rocca they helped me out the children bad obvious signs of trauma stunted speech and the development. excessive
nervousness and other symptoms brought about by what they saw more and conduct sure the worst is now behind them aids wound be easy readjusting to life in their home countries and most have family relatives who are more than willing to help when all is said and done there is some responsibility to be taken is that these women came to syria voluntarily and that they may yet have to answer for the damage isis has wrought is indescribable countless people have been killed entire cities razed yet even amidst the ashes of this disaster. is not lost there are still lives that can be repaired. and more ghostly if there were a lot he's been reporting to on our team's work at an iraqi orphanage where
children of suspected eisel fighters were left stranded you may recall a story from a couple weeks ago luckily with the help of our viewers we've managed to reunite many of them now with their families. i should like to take up that model was the. version with the menu but nonetheless it was. the work. place. at national arts.
at least twenty eight countries are set to sign a new defense pact monday morning that is the day it's been promoted by france and germany let's go live to berlin our europe correspondent peter all of this a bit more about what's on the sea it is a big deal this a lot of signatories one of the key points here what's going to happen. right well this is being put forward by the european commission and some are saying it was done so in a slightly and handed manner late on friday evening this what's called
a permanent structured cooperation or pescado agreement was put forward some would say to avoid attention from both nato and from the european council but ministers from the proposed member states have started to arrive in brussels we're expecting them to be discussing this but what does tesco entailed will twenty countries are expected to sign up to it we could see disagreement in place by the end of the year it's designed according to its architects to improve security and also to deepen defense cooperation across the e.u. has been put forward as something of a military shang gain if you will it's supposed to allow military hardware and equipment to move across borders of member states without having to go through checkpoints also to establish a crisis response unit and and joint military training now it does come on the back of a lot of discussions that have happened over the past few months about an e.u.
army in fact talk about stepped up following the united kingdom's decision and twenty sixteen that it wanted to leave the e.u. they had been firmly against an e.u. army but one particular leader that is where very much in favor of an e.u. military is a manual micron. we are in need of profound changes i proposed to our counterparts to create a european army and they open this initiative towards the french army and all militaries coming from european countries voluntarily not that france has to possess a joint intervention force common defense budget this year common doctrine to act so the french president on board with an e.u. army but when it comes to this military shamed an agreement or pesto there may be a few wrinkles to iron out between two of the major architects that's france who want to see a smaller force that fits within france's current tree current military objectives
and also want to see a force that would be able to intervene abroad where is germany or they want to see a larger more inclusive pescado agreement critics of which though say well it could become quite cumbersome and and in fact quite hump of the effectiveness if you allow too many people in welp foreign affairs ministers have started arriving in brussels for talks on this we're expecting them to sign something throughout monday i'll be keeping an eye on it soon as any news comes out of brussels of course i'll be bringing it to you here on r.t. or i will wait for the different folks so good idea or not to present a look at i guess the defense purpose already been touted as a new nato by some but critics suspect it'll be a strategic disaster. i think it's definitely another step in the wrong direction because of course there has been quite a nation among the elements of that european countries fence purposes but overall
this has taken place in the context of nato and there is no real difference because the policies which have been. persuaded and spirit very much confrontation against russia the nato build up so i think it is to be seen in this context and definitely it's not it's not attempting which should be seen as some kind of separate whatever our entire nato i would not directly see it as aggressive move but of course i see it quite critical first of all germany with its history should not be more than a defensive military structure and with this germany suddenly it's also having the possibility to do actively some military action i think it will help to play always the card good cop and bad cop the good cop is then the european army and the bad cop is the nato so i think they will really work arm in arm. there is some figures
to kill jews with it's been calculated by the end of this year the u.s. will have spent a total of five point six trillion dollars on wars in afghanistan in iraq and in syria that's triple what the pentagon says it spent and american universities work that it means the average u.s. taxpayer is actually for the daily twenty four thousand dollars to pay for the country's lengthy war on terror and the costs looks set to increase too with nato now planning to put more troops on the ground in afghanistan. we have decided to increase the number of troops the current level is wrong thirteen thousand. the new level would be around sixteen thousand we have what now person year if there. we've lost many thousands of people i think there are fifty six thousand grievously wounded casualties we need a fundamental very fundamental change in our strategy and i think it would begin to
draw down our military presence in many places across the globe the more that we engage in the war on terror the more terrorists we are do. these latest poll shows saudis are going to kick up a rather big stole to britain's kodos of power even though this particular political veteran series isn't even on ahead with us yet we went into june shoot tell you all about it reveal lol after the break. i played for many years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch or the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the super money. and spending children twenty million of one player. it's an experience like nothing else on here because i want to share
what i think what i know about the beautiful game great so well with. the six. i guess so the former first minister of scotland is artie's newest talk show host but the first episode where he had this thursday is quick preview of what's in store the normally alex salmond show not just the street political show it's about
people and past now it is of the day and find out something about the characters behind the public face of these personalities and what they've got to say perhaps even about issues which are not normally released to to their or to those of their business or their political political views i think that's of interest as well to see something of the the human being behind the public figure are you not afraid of bin hosts in the rush of the program taking into consideration all their publications on the media. attention to russia today can have and to supported that question i thought maybe from the son of the daily mail but a bit on the other side the other adequate scan back through the. russia today broadcasting and a counted fifty liebert m.p.'s thirty eight tory m.p.'s fourteen s m b m p seven liberals friesian fien to do you play in the green of all appear on russia today
programs so you know. if it's good enough for john mcdonnell jeremy corbin diane abbott john redwood crispin blunt liam for ian black for vince cable and cullen look at this that i can probably. stand there the criticism that the they experienced as well. while he's already able to withstand the sort of criticism he was expecting with headlines bashing and examines choice to appear here on our channel for a start british newspaper the times didn't hold back. mr salmon service for the propaganda outlets of a hostile foreign autocracy does indeed evince a lack of judgment self-respect and shame even the current leader of the scottish national party somes own party express third. hadn't been asked which i was and i would've advised him to seek another channel to ear the sure and of course alec is not currently an elected politician and he's free to meet care whatever decisions
he wishes to meet well i found that slightly odd actually because normally the scottish national party the party of the both members of a is normally pretty cohesive well i think it's very all the situation that we seem to be increasingly in where people want to know platform various individuals in various stations you see all the time news article saying isn't it disgraceful that x. politician should the platform and somebody or isn't it terrible that why politician turned up on various stations in various countries i believe in a plural say i believe actually that people should appear or whatever t.v. or radio station or whatever platform they want because it's important to create a sense of dialogue we don't want to be in a position where all we have to get is the b.b.c. say it's worth hearing different opinions and not say for all of its failings does do that. we try our best now let me take you through a story that appeared overnight bad news has come in from around iraq a powerful quake struck
a border region between those two countries thoughts have claimed more than two hundred lives of figures going up and for the seventeen hundred more have been injured according to the latest from iranian state t.v. it was a big quake seven point three on the richter scale sunday evening caused buildings to collapse have also been landslides in the mountainous region a desperate search for survivors is underway many has usual what often happens in these things caught under the rubble you can see the status of those buildings to say the casualty numbers are expected to rise tremors were felt in baghdad even as far as southeast turkey electricity obviously has been cut off in several cities in both iran and iraq and communications and disrupted which is not helping the rescue efforts will keep you posted as more details coming on through the coming hours. so the arabia has succumb to pressure from the u.n. and humanitarian organizations as it announces it will begin reopening air and sea ports in yemen this comes after a week long total blockade of the arab world's poorest country earlier unicef said
that four hundred thousand children in yemen are facing starvation right now and on top of that there's a deadly cholera outbreak to add to the misery half of those affected children under the age of fifteen locals say they're suffering both from relentless saudi bombing and of course the blockade to. you're. the you're. already said then and there that you know that not a lesson on how not to how to look. in the survival getting gotten a little better at all most are valuable there's no logical reason that we couldn't sort of take medicine should we deal with the issue of cholera there is no the
logical reason that we couldn't sort of give food. support to do those who are starving the only thing that is holding us back is the fact that the saudis and their allies with the help of the support of united states and the west are putting very effective sort of blockade which no food no medicine gets true no reporter could get through not a humanitarian organization could operate and indeed even united nations cannot have access to these people to stop the sort of this onslaught at least look after the endless and people who are facing a starvation and disease. but the way the news looks so far this morning it's approaching ten twenty six in the morning monday moscow time i'm kevin oh and thanks for watching this latest live news update them from ati h.q.
one hundred years ago russia was consumed by revolution and unprecedented violence is not an understatement to say the russian revolution all of it could a top was a defining moment of the twentieth century how did it change russia. here's what people have been saying about rejected and this is just full. of the only show i go out of my way to constantly watch for the really packed a punch. is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than the blue. sea or heard of. back to the next president of the world bank. seriously send us an e-mail.
time after time say we're going underground on the official deadline day for r.t. america to register as a foreign agent of the usa or be liable for arrests coming up on the show don't let my past be your future twenty four hours after remembrance day we speak to world war two veteran old harry smith about u.k. prime minister teresa mayes disgraced defense secretary and what he thinks of his replacement who has consistently voted to weaken veterans' rights award nominated comic book writer and creator of the kingsmen franchise mark miller on the thing his blockbuster credentials are the scottish labor leadership race which decides who will lead jeremy cauldrons party north of the border this saturday but for balance edinburgh labor council having day tells us why he supports. scottish labor the man who supported jeremy corbin before the ink was resignation all the symbol
coming up in today's going underground but first un climate change conference call twenty three continues in europe today so while one e.u. member spain continues to threaten the very idea of democracy itself another member hosts a meeting to arguably decide the fate of the world although some manmade climate change isn't even really an issue at all here's what donald trump said about the cop twenty one paris climate accord i was elected to represent. the citizens of pittsburgh not parents arguably know any are as ignorant as this. not only can provide safe cheap power but it can also help reduce our carbon emissions that's the u.k. pm drazen may want to criticize trump's environmental credentials after holding hands with him she backs a bomb of support for fracking shall cast does have the potential to power economic growth. of jobs in the oil and gas industries and in other sectors and
domestic energy but jobs in energy for who will there be any humans left to use the energy and is the scientific truth of climate change really helped by news like this a newly released federal climate report suggests it's extremely unlikely that rising temperatures are caused by humans a federal report is in us federal report that iraq had weapons of mass destruction as in nato nations should support al qaeda and isis linked militants to overthrow the government of syria as in backing death squads to kill gadhafi in libya as in one u.s. federal report the thought it proved this very t.v. show is able to destroy us democracy and put trump into the white house against the wishes of the american people perhaps quote twenty three delegates in bonn germany would do better in saving the world from climate change if they attack the root cause is not fossil fuels not fossil fuel companies not federal reports but the entire new liberal system itself a neoliberal system arguably supported by nato warfare which was referenced.
