1:01 am
hello there good morning just on 8 o'clock here in moscow you're watching international now making history donald trump has become the 1st u.s. president to enter north korea after crossing the demarcation line between the 2 koreas with his counterpart kim jong un said a lot of progress had been made during their talks but sanctions against pyongyang do remain in place our senior correspondent explains now whether the symbolic meeting up could affect the almost total economic blockade of north korea. for all the buzz hype and the coverage denuclearization was going nowhere it had stalled again despite all the summits all the handshakes perhaps what it needed was something crazy something radical.
1:02 am
the 1st sitting u.s. president to visit north korea who would have thought the world's most militarized border to boot and they shook hands again and talked german and trump trying to revive denuclearization efforts that were clinically dead made some progress so we had to start small form teams to find common ground little things that could lead to bigger ones and spoiling everything and as is tradition now those sanctions this thing on memory are some point look i'm looking forward to taking well i don't like sanctions bring on this country i'm looking forward but the sanctions remain useful but at some point during the negotiation things can happen and that's what
1:03 am
we'll be talking about promises promises it was sanctions the torpedoed the last summit and the state says trump until there is verified denuclearization progress however long that takes and that's what bugs north korea how could 2 sides have meaningful honest discussions when one of them is on its knees being strangled by the this is a manifestation of the most extreme hostile acts by the united states all these speak clearly to the fact that the world dream of the united states to bring us to our knees by an. means of sanctions and pressure has not changed at all but grows even more undisguised now factor in those thousands of u.s. troops stationed in south korea with guns trained in the north and you'll understand why trust is well it isn't there. knows it's history
1:04 am
too many nations that have gone through denuclearization with then invaded obama by the us i doubt kim jong un wants to join that club america fears north korea is just needing the month to get out from under those sanctions decades of talks and the kids have stuck by their nukes we don't expect chairman kim to tell us the truth that's why we're going to verify any denuclearization that takes place that's why we will ensure that we see actual on the ground on the ground outcomes we're not going to take anyone's word for it it's not all doom and gloom though this is an ancient conflict by modern standards and it was never going to be solved overnight they need to talk and that's what they're doing and they seem to get it now that you start small and build up that big and hopefully sometime soon the world's most militarized move dangerous board that will well i bet on the become any less tense but at least they'll be no nuclear standoff to worry about the style
1:05 am
of negotiations that the u.s. is trying to impart here on these on these talks is that they want full compliance from pyongyang before they will consider lifting sanctions if this isn't just about the denuclearization of the korean peninsula i believe that what washington is attempting to do here is build a template of negotiations that they hope will be successful that there will then be able to transfer a similar sort of arrangement with regards to iran and that is the u.s. wants full access to all facilities. military facilities in the d.p. r. k. and they've already made remarks that it's a precondition for any kind of a deal with iran in other words to get them back on board with the j c p a way they want full access to all arraigning facilities and they're not going to get that iran will not compromise its national security to u.s.
1:06 am
intelligence to that degree specifically with all the threats that have been going on. to germany now where 3 men have pleaded guilty to sexually abusing more than 40 children aged between 3 to 14 the abuse reportedly took place over a number of years at a campsite in the small german town of lived between them the men are accused of some 450 cases of child abuse the local authorities are also accused of failing to act. when the majority of the abuse is perpetrated by a single suspect identified only as andrea's face he's accused of almost 300 sex
1:07 am
crimes against 23 children the offenses a believed to being committed in 1900 $98.00 and then between 2008 and 28 seyne the police are accused of in action in the face of mounting evidence of abuse over the gays the authorities are also claims of less evidence disappear back in february for example they admitted losing almost a terabyte of evidence one of the children's representative says the way they were questioned was inappropriate say for their age and the authorities themselves acknowledge there was a police failure calling the situation at a bar. well the region's interior minister says this was worse than negligence and should never happen again we spoke to one of the victims' lawyers about the mistakes that were made few lou we have seen numerous flaws the most terrifying is the disappearance of $155.00 c.d.'s from a secure police station we're talking about the c.d.'s which were found at the
1:08 am
campsite in the main suspects trailer it turned out that the people with prior convictions for possession of child pornography were working at the police station and still are as for the interrogation of the children they were questioned at the police station but this is not what should have happened there are specific ways in which children can be questioned and it involves support from social services and the establishment of a trusting relationship it should not happen as an interviewer to police station it my opinion matters were allowed to escalate because of the careless approach to information on child pornography and paedophilia and the department's employees lack of awareness it is simply unacceptable for a department to react in this manner and then tried to cover up its own negligence . now sweden's liberal party has elected a new leader it is a rising political star who could change the party's fortunes the emco subdue knee has however shocked many with views with more his donald court for some.
1:09 am
might have seemed perfect to lead sweden's liberal party she's black she's an immigrant but actually she's pretty inconvenient at least for a number of her colleagues who are leaving in protest. now that i thought ditto were i'm leaving the liberal stuff to 52 years as a member i've always been a social liberal and will remain so but with a new direction there is no place for me it is with great sadness that the fundamental social liberal values that have been so important to me in my political career for many years and now it's risk of being a voted in favor of a credit down invest e.g. policy criminal care and perhaps even in social policy areas it's all because the boonies just a little too far to the right sure she's been to gay pride parades even service sweden's minister for gender equality but when it comes to multiculturalism she said she wants to quote bury it in 2006 the swedish m.p. proposed job ban for girls under 15 and exams to stop female genital mutilation the
1:10 am
book she authored shines a spotlight on the threat on our violence poses to women and now so one has even taken to criticizing sweden's handling of migration it has been shown that about half of those who applied for asylum in sweden in recent years do not have the right criteria for asylum the finances that should be located abroad remain in sweden because young migrants aris coming here thinking that they can probably stay anyway despite her controversial views on migration you'd think protecting females both young and old would be a platform anyone could get behind especially when the party's unity is so fragile sunni's prime opponent even threw in the towel just to keep the peace. my aim was always to unite the party but in a situation where many seem to want a different political orientation than the one i was seeking he would be receiving a split if i'd continued my candidacy and while his decision may have saved the party in the short term its supporters on the internet are not convinced. i can't
1:11 am
stand her i must not tolerate what she's saying she's the worst races in sweden despite her skin color. i've always thought the neon cusa boonies too far to the right to be liberal now she is showing it openly this cannot be the way forward. because problem is that she wants to open the door for recess so they can form more is really a right wing government so really my took all the boxes when it comes to the liberal party's commitment to tolerance but for some people there's just no pleasing them. of course are there now the german government has promised to shut down all its nuclear reactors by 2022 sparking a debate about the energy future of the country amid frequent environmental protests there when germany is currently using a record amount of renewable energy with alternative sources covering almost half of electricity consumption this year but critics do say switching to renewable energy while phasing out nuclear power is too ambitious as peter oliver reports.
1:12 am
germany has set some targets when it comes to cutting emissions from energy production the federal government is committed to a 55 percent reduction in 1990 levels of greenhouse gases by 2030 when it comes to the climate in energy in germany things are heating up just this weekend hundreds of protesters broke through a police line to demonstrate against the mining a brown coal in the west of the country. i. knew i did. since german chancellor angela merkel said she would shut down the country's nuclear power plants by 2022 in the wake of the fukushima nuclear disaster in japan the idea is that renewables like wind and solar power would take up the slack but when you say nuclear and the wind doesn't blow the sun doesn't shine you have to replace not energy in the grid and that is meant to be more coal activists who are
1:13 am
in favor of nuclear say the energy source is suffering from a bad reputation and the decision to phase out nuclear energy is actually counterproductive to emission goals and that the decision was made for political not scientific reasons people are misinformed about nokia and i think it's extremely risky but just the opposite is true the reason for phasing out nuclear clearly politically only science says if you want to go carbon free you have to use carbon free power sources and nuclear is the most effective carbon free policy along with nuclear waste safety is one of the major concerns of nuclear critics the huge recent popularity of h.b.o.'s dramatize ation as the chernobyl disaster as against the safety issues brought soap but is that this was clearly the
1:14 am
most dramatic and serious nuclear accident. but. representative for modern nuclear energy it is not that accident which happened more than 30 years ago does not mean anything. to modern reactor technology it's not just activists that want to see the nuclear phase out next huge names from the german automobile industry have said they would like to see the use of nuclear power extended also key figures in german business saying that it would benefit both consumers and industry financially and even members of angler merkel's own party have said they would rather see coal powered binde while nuclear remains however those that are in favor of nuclear power say busy it would be worth it in the short term to pay more for energy for in the long to receiving clean energy sources and lower bills to short term effects of course leads to increasing prices
1:15 am
but these. increases are still affordable in the long term we would expect especially from tucson and showed you could expect. the same level of price that we had in 2010 that means in the long run we have a comparative advantage nuclear power could set to be phased out here in germany in the next couple of years even if renewable energy isn't at the stage to take up the slack one of the reasons for this is the power companies here are cut back significantly or cut back altogether when it comes to research and development in the nucleus sector also once the decommissioning process has begun well many sites simply can't be used again that means that once nuclear is gone it's gone for good without having to build brand new prohibitively expensive infrastructure and what that means is well germany would have to import more energy from its neighbors some
1:16 am
of that energy of course is generated by you guessed it nuclear power peter all of r.t. germany. now a new survey has found that young americans becoming less accepting of lesbian and gay people will have a look at that in detail just after the break. when lawmakers manufactured. public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. in the frame of. the one percent. we can all middle of the room 6. 1000000.
1:17 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront a shouldn't let it be an arms race is often spearing dramatic development the only city i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. again welcome back now as pride month wraps up around the world the community seems to be divided in the u.s. with competing rallies being held amid claims the main event has become too
1:18 am
commercialized the reclaim pride coalition held a separate march in new york with quote no corporate floats and no police it says the official event no longer addresses the political struggles the community under the trumpet ministration meanwhile a new report suggests a sharp decline in except it's a gay and lesbian pimple among young americans but according to the survey in 2018 fewer people aged 18 to 34 felt comfortable interacting with people. compared with the year before while the number feeling uncomfortable with a relative coming out or so roll rose more young americans also didn't like the idea of gay issues being taught in school on the other hand the acceptance rate among people age 72 and over was actually higher than the previous year now the number of hate crimes against bt people also rose sharply in recent years too
1:19 am
according to the f.b.i. there was a 17 percent spike in 2017 said 2017 story water rights group reports that 26 members of the transgender community were murdered last year in fact since january this year one l g b t watchdog reported 40 incidents of hate crime we got reaction to the decline in tolerance from a community representative and also from the author of the study on acceptance least munisteri experiencing could be leading to this aversion it's a new nose that takes time for people to understand our job is to educate about nonconformity we counter the narrative that young people are more progressive intolerant these numbers are very alarming and signal a looming social crisis in discrimination but we took to the streets to get more reaction to the strike. brahe manatee it's about loud it's about acceptance by 2 carefully louth until we accept horse is going to be a poser's and of course is going to be you know different trends that occur but i
1:20 am
think overall it actually calls it a day just so strongly believe in that and as long as they're not hurting anybody our thing is i mean they're not going acid at people homophobia and white supremacy and zina phobia are becoming more and more accepted like nationally in our entire government so probably young people are seeing that and thinking that it's ok our community has been overtaken by a very sort of extremist very political faction that has tried to essentially politicize everything under the umbrella of. there is sort of this more extremist progressive faction that has really overreached i think they've made a lot of people uncomfortable i think in a lot of people on the aisle do you can take community feel uncomfortable once it is put out into the internet and into b b atmosphere that you are
1:21 am
a racist or a bigot or a hate group or whatever it lives and be on the internet and so then other people in the future will use that against you to say well you can't come here we can't come here we want to live here because there's always that there's already been in the south recently. leading games console produces nintendo 70 and microsoft will join forces against the trunk of ministrations new tower if some goods from china. the video game console supply chain has developed in china over many years of investment by all companies and all partners it would cause significant supply chain disruption to shift sourcing entirely to the united states or a 3rd country and it would increase costs even beyond the cost of the proposed tariffs on products. already manufactured under tight margin conditions 96 percent of game console sold in the u.s. are made in china console makers say
1:22 am
a 25 percent tariff could harm the industry they want so that prices would have to be hiked which would lead to a fall in sales worth an estimated $3350000000.00 a year gamer and technology expert arturo one louis told us that donald trump underestimates how bad his terrorists would be for the u.s. . president trump card on the stand oh i don't know 60 percent of adult population us i'll be a game players community i really are united on these situations and we'll push a lot of pressure to mr trump and obviously the huge companies microsoft sony game go play and everything we shall love the good leak out a lot of influence for you $3400000000.00 industry around the world so i think very bad decision from mr trump.
1:23 am
meanwhile russia and china have agreed to increase trade in their own national currencies reducing their reliance on the u.s. dollar currently only 10 percent of trade between the 2 countries is conducted in roubles or un but under a new deal that figure will rise to 50 percent the russian president raised the issue at a meeting between the 5 brics nations during the g 20 summit. the joint work between the brics countries and shifting to trade using our own national currencies is moving along well well to their use of global currencies like the dollar and you are over a share and china will have to avoid swift which is the world's largest payment system it is used 511000 financial institutions in $200.00 countries and is heavily reliant on the dollar the organization claims to uphold political neutrality but has repeatedly blocked access to russian to russian and chinese banks u.s.
1:24 am
sanctions russia and china already have their own payment systems though which can be used as alternatives to swift and they are working on developing a new and financial instruments to boost cross currency trade and in a similar development to the european union has created a settlement platform called instead to allow firms to continue trading with iran bypassing u.s. sanctions the u.s. has expressed its concern over the move warning of possible sanctions against in sticks and loss of access to the u.s. markets professor of political economy from st mary's college told us that this initiative might go further if the u.s. continues its sanction policy. well it's only at the very beginning and we're talking only about 2 countries for fairly large countries could be a significant amount of blood trade in non-dollar currencies or in crime you know are still the global currency but i think it will be a fight with the brics whether the u.s.
1:25 am
will stand by and do nothing if the brics should join the beginning of the china russia payment system won't be using to do it the u.s. is not going to stand by and let this the centerpiece of its global economic empire . slip from its fingers it will take counteraction overtly and covertly here to discourage it you know use the sanctions is a short term weapon and game here for the united states in trouble loves it but you know long term it may come back and bite the u.s. if it pushes too hard. and if the u.s. continues with strong arming with same sions will never would want something through another country then other countries are going to move further in that direction. now with us democrats readying to grill special counsel next month over his $500.00 page report into donald trump and his 2016 campaign a man jailed as part of the pro forma trump advisor george papadopoulos claims he
