that's the thought of you. if you are. finished if you are that. moscow and washington have opposing views on key global issues but if greta reset ties and try to overcome their differences that's the take home message from the u.s. secretary of state. visit to russia. meanwhile the u.s. attorney general investigate the legality of evidence used in the russia trump collusion probe but doesn't question the finding of the report and russian interference also it's a soft thing this latest campaign in norway to coincide with ramadan features a crescent moon in this part of its logo sparking anger.
hello there is midday here in moscow you're watching r.t. international now the russian president vladimir putin says he's ready to resolve differences with washington and improve for relations although syria sticking points still remain on tuesday he met with the u.s. secretary of state in the black sea resort of sochi where russia's foreign minister also held talks with his american counterpart. there's a pretty good notion we also want to restore relations with the us i hope all the conditions for that are now being created despite the exotic wait the mother commission had been working in the hole it came up with an objective investigation and proved there was no collusion between russia and the us the thing we branded
estoppel monson's from the very beginning of the sides have agreed to restore communication channels and cooperate on a number of global challenges including on syria afghanistan and north korea earlier in the day pump and russia's foreign minister spent 3 hours grappling with pressing global issues among them venezuela on which they agreed to disagree. on venezuela we have disagreement i urge my russian colleagues to support the venezuelan people as they return democracy to their country the united states and more than 50 other nations agree that the time has come for nicolas maduro to go he's brought nothing but misery to the venezuelan people. and we hope that the russians to support former dural will and democritus you in your system of democracy can't be imposed by force threats coming both from u.s. officials and the opposition leader want wide open as was always reminding us of
the possibility of military intervention have nothing to do with democracy or human well at that meeting there lavrov in pompei i didn't strike up quite the same level for a poll as their bosses have done in the past at least that's according to body language expert darren stanton. people there are good and i'm very one they've got a deep mutual wrist genuine respect for each other they turn to much a mirror each of this posture so we'll see each person mirroring the other one's gestures so as an example president truman very often mirrors president putin in terms of the way sits with his legs sort of such a such a stride and then also like was president truman does what we call reverse steeple gesture where they inverse his hands and these are both power gestures now with the 2 men today we didn't see any or very little much of a mirroring which tends to tell me that although they're there to do a job they're very they're not kind of i don't think we've got a level of pressure a relationship that president putin and trump of got while the escalating crisis over the iran nuclear deal which the u.s.
pulled out of a year ago was also high on the agenda in sochi recently said it would also ditch the deal if other signatories mainly european states did not safeguard its interests as per the dream and washington is now threatening around with trouble if it gives upon its commitments something russia takes issue with. we have many disagreements on the wrong now with you but the fact that we've started talking on this issue gives us hope that we will be able to achieve agreements if both sides show willingness to do that were done was made clear that the united states will continue to apply pressure to the regime in tehran and joe its leadership is prepared to return to the ranks of responsible nations that do not threaten their neighbors or spread instability or terror on pay later tweeted that the talks were a positive step forward and that he hoped that russia and the u.s. would manage to establish better relations former u.s.
diplomat says that moscow and washington will have to overcome some big obstacles to improve relations. i understand that the russians especially want to talk about keeping the lines of communication open they talked to the about the americans as their so-called partners and so forth they expressed hope that would now that the moeller investigation is over there will be some freedom for mr trump to pursue the way he talked about during the campaign to improve ties in my opinion that is very unlikely to happen that if you look at things domestically or in the united states not just democrats but even republicans are still all over trump claiming that he is dancing to putin's tune they still accuse the russians of meddling in our elections and if we saw that mr pompey all warned mr lavrov not to do it again even though the proof is not there that they did it in the 1st place i think that there will be very serious obstacles to any kind of improvement of relations hopefully as
mr lavrov suggested they can get some of these working groups on arms control and other issues going with experts diplomats military men to come to some agreement on specific issues but i am not optimistic. that the u.s. attorney general william barr has loans to probably been see possible misconduct relating to the minute a report specifically he will see if the rule was broken when trying to establish whether donald trump colluded with russia however decided not to subject the path of the investigation was completed there was meddling by moscow to the same streets in a kind of picks up the story. since 2016 the democrats have been pushing an investigation of donald trump for allegedly colluding with russia in order to win the $2016.00 elections well now the report is out and the verdict is no collusion and at this point it looks like cable news will not stop the noise about trump in russia
despite the report being released well now we've got a new investigation to cover it seems the republicans are now pushing to investigate the investigators u.s. attorney john durham he is not a rookie by far he investigated the cia and revealed that they had destroyed tapes and evidence of their torture program he also investigated the f.b.i.'s relationship with mafia boss whitey bulger so when it was announced that he would look into whether or not federal officials broke the wall when investigating donald trump the democrats got antsy so did former f.b.i. director james calming and feared personally i feared as a citizen investigated what investigate that investigations were conducted what would be the crime you'd be investigating so it's a terrible cycle to start perhaps the f.b.i. does have a reason to be concerned after all they did send an informer who posed as an assistant in order to meet with trump's aide now this informer stephon helper has
a long history in fact he was involved in cia spying during the 1980 elections trump says that his campaign was spied on however those who oversaw the operation strongly object to that wording you know. the dictionary definition of spies surveillance or spying a term i don't particularly like it's not a term of war used by intelligence people that has a negative connotation of a rogue operation out of control not in compliance with the war and that's not the case at all now let's not forget that the feds clung to the now discredited steel down ca in order to apply for a warrant to surveil donald trump now a full 10 days before they applied for the warrant they were already questioning christopher steele's credibility and here's some language from a memo that surfaced. there is a technical human operation run out of moscow targeting the election payments to those recruited and made out of the russian consulate in miami it is important to
note that there is no russian consulate in miami but the intel community presented christopher steele as being credible when they applied for a warrant to spy on trump now durham will no doubt be looking into whether or not that is legal now let's also not forget that chuck schumer waived his fist on behalf of the american spying agency's take on the intelligence community they have 6 ways from sunday of getting back after everything related to the trump russia investigation seems to be a widely contested the words presented by one side are presented as false by the other side and amid all these allegations of dishonesty biased partisanship we're expected to believe by both wings of the establishment that what they are saying about russia and their allegations that it meddled in the 20th 16 elections is absolutely true. well i guess the american people will have to decide what they want to believe. r.t. new york what is kind of mentioned there the investigation seems to raise doubts
about the investigators but not about the findings in particular about the conclusion the mosque going to feed the u.s. election political ominously rockwell says it's because there's no appetite among the u.s. public to question this narrative. they all know there's no evidence republicans democrats moller. barr i know that there are a lot of americans who have same view i do want to know where the evidence is. but i think the you know this the establishment the media both political parties. they're all saying one thing and i don't know that the american people will ever see it will they demand it like to think that they would but i'm i'm afraid i don't believe that i'm afraid this is just going to go on and on and on and pompei oh bolton. and the administration the democrats the republicans and congress
the media they're all being the same drum and they're all lawyering and we just have to hope that. president trump will pull back. we just have to see. now a number of activists still remain in venezuela's former embassy in washington d.c. despite an infection notice from police they are trying to prevent venezuelan opposition figures from taking up residence in the compound to have the backing of the west which recognizes that leader. as the president of the country meanwhile venezuelan embassies in other countries are often becoming the subject control to see to its peter all of explaining its. just a few moments ago the big players on the world stage were tripping over themselves to come out and recognize one is the legitimate president of venezuela we're ready to recognize one going to as interim president we will recognize him as
constitutional interim president. we stand ready to recognize one guy down as the interim president of venezuela. even said representatives 2 different. ations around the world despite them not receiving diplomatic credentials in some countries like here in germany where we have a situation that the ambassador who sits in the embassy just behind me represents a government deemed illegitimate while the representative of the government deemed legitimate holds no diplomatic rank here in germany though that hasn't stopped quite those man from at least calling himself ambassador a little puzzled by what i think i could eat more of the in venezuela we are living under a dictatorship there needs to be international pressure to end the a separation of power when we can have a real transitional government so we can hold elections then we can have our consulates and embassies. full steam ahead for regime change as politicians and
news networks cheated each official that defected from the madieu road government but then there was the failed coup attempt and the ball of aryan republic and the standoff outside of the venezuelan embassy in washington. i. mean efficiency internationally and she's. been. she's just west of it illegally entering the years and we're trying to see this and it mentions an international now with the german parliament tree inquiry finding that germany's recognition of quite though is president was shaky at best under international law the foreign ministry here is less than committed when it comes to talking about furthering
relations and talks with the representatives of the man who would be the leader of that his way it's a similar story in other nations in spain for example they also welcomed the representative of one without conveyed. any diplomatic rank basically means that it was the quietest representatives could meet and talk with foreign ministry officials but very little else despite european leaders joining in the cheers for a change early on in venezuela the reality today is they have taking a position it's much more on the fence but one of these days they're going to have to come down on one side or the other as they find out it can be quite easy to make big political statements but if you don't think through how they're going to be put into action can just cause more problems down the line. of reporting there was. an m.p. for germany's left party thinks that the states and germany in particular do have good reasons not to recognize quite as ambassadors. foreign policy
always recognized states but no individual persons and though we see all the the the costs coming out of the situation because of why there was no real power the real power of this were. for pragmatic reasons. in the recording of the durable embassy here are dealing with with them and consulate story issues on the other hand the representative of wired or mr. is recognized as a political representative of quote all but not as an ambassador at the issue of. foreign minister is cooperating with us embassies of cross which oh it's because you cannot deal with real issues with a president who has no power in the country. the u.k.
apparently isn't ruling out cooperation with chinese telecoms giant huawei despite america's repeated warning to his allies that the company's 5 g. technology poses a major security threat so let's get more details now from the state party she joins us in london kate it looks like doesn't it that the u.k. will go ahead with a deal despite those american objections. either and they were yes indeed a major british telecom company vodafone has announced it's going to use equipment provided among other manufacturers by chinese company huawei as vodafone looks to roll out its 5 g. network across the u.k. from july the surge however the u.k. government's stance on way seems a little better than officials are not ruling out working with the chinese company despite numerous attempts by the u.s. to persuade the u.k. to shun wah its equipment over security concerns while on choose stay the u.k.'s
position was forced by foreign secretary jeremy hunt. we as a government are going through the process of making an assessment to what extent if at all we are able to use while wait kit we couldn't stop the growth of china if we wanted to so we need to find a way of living alongside this big new power in the world. well has also said the u.k. needs to avoid an unnecessary cold war with beijing adding that china is here to stay as a major economic power whether you like it or not while at the end of last month prime minister tories and they agreed to give huawei access to the u.k.'s new 5 g. network yet over the past few months washington has been trying hard to pressure its allies including the u.k. and the other countries in the 5 eyes alliance not sticke cooperate with the chinese telecom giant citing those security concerns with american officials accuse huawei of espionage on behalf of the chinese government. who are we as one company we've been concerned about there are others as well as the negotiations proceed i
think we're going to see a lot about what chinese companies have done to steal intellectual property to hack into the computer systems not just of the u.s. government but in the private companies as well while way has raised serious concerns among u.s. officials for a potential role in cyber espionage given their reported links to china's state security services the united states has also been very clear with our security partners under threat posed by war with another chinese telecom companies as chinese law requires them to provide beijing's vast security apparatus with access to any data that touches their network quitman. we must protect our critical telecom infrastructure. well meanwhile chairman has expressed the company's willingness to sign no spy agreements with european governments and that includes the u. case so perhaps one of america's closest allies may be ignoring washington's warnings
regarding qual way as it hasn't ruled out cooperation with this. ok thank you kate there is a tease kate potteries there for us in london. watching our tape going to take a quick break we're back with more news in tables. join me every 1st week on the alex simon sure and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports i'm sure i'll see you then. what is it called. magic and the new type of digital currency decentralized digital scarcity chancellor. second for bankers call the genesis blog for reason to calling it civil disobedience
a source of optimism because i can control my own financial destiny it's just a new way of coming to consensus it's a game changer in the human history this is columbus discovering a new world this paradigm shifting technology that transforms economics and finance in a heartbeat the apollo 11 landing on to the max and stacey. but again has launched a ramadan of its products in norway the no hugo feature is the crescent moon to celebrate the muslim holy month although not everybody has welcomed the idea. shame on you for promoting women oppressing homosexuals terrorizing islam did you also
make adverts with the cross in saudi arabia an easter this is getting to stupid if your company is using the crescent moon of islam in norway as a marketing tool during ramadan i will have no choice but to boycott your products according to the pew research center the number of muslims in norway is on the rise in 2016 they represented almost 6 percent of the population coca-cola norway has defended the ramadan logo saying it's part of the brand's commitment to diversity and also inclusion coca-cola has tried appealing to muslims in previous primary campaigns in other countries. for example last year it stuck schwing ran a facebook at 1st mint in which a muslim woman gets a scornful look but ends up making friends with a stranger marketing expert who call up things that muslim culture is being exploited by the company to sell its product. knowledge is
a free. tolerant country for all kinds of. minorities and is very much respectful of diversity so you're in or it's more like a public relations campaign rob i'm going to relax i think that right now i think coca-cola wants to make statements that the failure of diversity that they think of . that they want to be part of an inclusive society and of course they're a commercial company to try to sulk or color also some of them itself this is a very family oriented it's meaningful ritual. in islam so it's natural for coca-cola. and if there is similar things in buddhism or hinduism or whatever and there is a sizable population there might respond to that. i'm sure coca-cola will too. now the son of israel's prime minister has questioned just how sincere the german
government is when it says it is standing by israel although netanyahu does not hold any government position some do some do believe his attitude is shared by many israeli officials too. it will be nice if you stop interfering in our internal business and stop funding hundreds of radical left wing in jews in israel that seek its destruction use the hundreds of millions of euros used for this to fund hospitals schools and churches in germany a recent report by israel claims some european countries including germany have been funding anti israel boycott campaigners going so far as to suggest that some of the money and is up in the hands of palestinian terrorist groups that eighty's jab by the israeli prime minister's son is directed at german foreign minister heiko mass well that's despite mass bowing to continue to support israel's legitimate interests and doing his utmost to oppose attempts to isolate the jewish
state the german foreign minister made the remark on the 70th anniversary of israel's admission to the un we heard some contrasting views on the issue from a foreign affairs analyst and also an israeli journalist. israel germany relations are quite a big us and the west it's kind of the most hypocritical show or in town because even if we go on the just not to back far in time merkel herself has voted at least 16 times in the un against israel defies 7 tromp resolution to recognize drislane while trying to convince the other interesting interesting nations not to follow trump she's also trying to fight trump sanctions over iran germany is trying to undermine israel a sovereign 3 what would you expect other than saying we is stand by israel what do you expect other than that but reality is pretty much. the other way around
it tells you something about the atmosphere at the prime minister's residence and this should be a warrior some people who care about democracy about understanding of the more coarsely and understanding all their international law there seems to be very very hostile germany is the source of all needless to say that germany's more sensitive to criticism coming from jerusalem because germany carries rightly so guilt feelings for for the past but this does not mean that those attacks are legitimate the world is iraq. because the israeli occupation is a clear violation of the international law anything is the duty of the world to stand against the end to his goals to fight it with billions and without
a doubt that israel to support them financially morally to support those 2 to really support all those fake 2 groups individuals who are fighting for ending the occupation. crane has offered to free a journalist working for a russian news agency as part of a prisoner exchange with moscow. he was his ukrainian was arrested in kiev on charges of treason russia's presidential human rights council has expressed concern over his treatment of journalists and public figures rallied outside the ukrainian embassy in moscow support the journalist is the head of the ria news agency as ukrainian office he was imprisoned in 2018 accused of supporting separatists in eastern ukraine storm bass region at the time he appealed to the russian president vladimir putin for support asking or site be made her russian see.
