3:00 pm
i don't want. anything into that community yeah. it's kinda any kind of ticking down the lane he made a move a little the last young enough i don't think it's a. surprise stopover at the g. 7 summit iran's top diplomat becomes france's unexpected plus one of the talks but u.s. president donald trump persists with his hardline approach to iraq. in other things that shape the wake you could even put in calls for 8 symmetrical response to new u.s. missile testing tensions grow following the collapse of the arms control treaty. dizzying display our correspondent takes to the skies with russia's elite
3:01 pm
aerobatics team at of the max $2900.00. of them back. down. here with me. and. they. are watching this is r.t. international on call in bright sunday so we're going to take a look at some of the big stories we're covering here over the past 7 days bring you up to date on the weekends developments 1st though starting at the g. 7 summit in france where the iranian foreign minister has grabbed attention after making an unexpected visit for talks with the french president and top officials about serif then tweeted that the road ahead is difficult but worth trying to get an update earlier from our senior correspondent what i guess if. well it was a certainly a surprise and judging by what trump had to say not
3:02 pm
a very welcome one when asked what he thought about the arena and foreign minister coming over all of a sudden you applied coldly no comment and start of surprise the united states stands by its approach by its strategy regarding iran and that is maximum pressure on getting iran to submit and do what the united states wants to sign the deal that trump wants no less the europeans and that since the united states pulled out of the nuclear deal last year the europeans have been doing everything they can to try to salvage what they could to try to keep iran to abide by its nuclear commitments the sort of prevented from from getting anywhere near a nuclear weapon and this latest step is just another part of that. is it no member of the g. 7 wants iran to develop a nuclear bomb but also the g. 7 people who want stability and peace in the region and therefore do not want to
3:03 pm
take actions that could affect it in this context we discussed our various initiatives. has taken initiatives towards iran i have taken several initiatives and we have reported on them the g 7 is an informal club there is no formal mandate given within the g 7. god in all those initiatives trouble has come out and said outright that the french and the japanese can talk to whoever they want to anyone else but they don't speak for the united states he said that the united states stands by its position stands by its approach because this is no longer about an iranian nuclear deal this is no longer only about nuclear reactors and the pursuit of nuclear weapons this is now also about iran's ballistic missile program which the united states wants doubt this is also about iran's role in regional conflicts the united states 110. to pull out of them completely trumpets offering the
3:04 pm
iranians a baggage that by all appearances they would accept and now we're than where the united states is strangling the iranian economy applying military pressure on them the europeans are trying to save what they cabin the iranians swear that they won't bend. but we've been getting reaction from tehran and europe about what the potential results or ramifications of this g. 7 summit could be beginning i thought like most journalists that it was an offer p.r. stunt a public relations effort of mr micawber to go to make it such a success but the fact that. the foreign affairs minister of iran is there is in doubt it's a few meters away from the trial is is astonishing is astounding and it seems there is more to it if germany and france have discussed with the iranians
3:05 pm
over the last few days and are discussing now with the on of those in ballots it was the french that came to the ukrainians that vince them to stay in the deal and essentially what that did it actually prolonged period did iran fully of lies by the deal and that was very good for the americans i mean it will definitely have an impact iran is plain a major role in the discussions in the g. 7 and donald trump actually made it yesterday that major decisions will be coming in the next few days so i think it is important nevertheless i think it's very very early to talk about an actual agreement between iran and the united states. away from the talks anticapitalist protests have been held for a 2nd day in southwest france triggered by that g. 7 summit in the resort of beer it hundreds of social action climate change activists took to the streets of nearby bio on sunday they could be seen carrying upside down and wrapped up for traits of a manual on the chrome demonstrators have been demanding that the g 7 take urgent
3:06 pm
action to tackle poverty inequality and environmental concerns at least 1000 demonstrators turned out yesterday saturday the 1st day of the summit itself. and while the international aid organization oxfam is also accusing the g 7 nations of failing to address the growing inequality in a new report it says that in the united states the poorest 50 percent of the population own one percent of the country's wealth germany and britain not far behind either jacqueline who spoke to oxfam's head of government relations about his charity's findings. why do you think the g. 7 don't work properly what are the main problems more widespread as well. so we think one of the kind of major barriers is how wealth is distributed between people across the world and in g 7 countries so that the 7 biggest economies in the g 7 hold nearly half the world's wealth and actually if g 7 leaders implemented
3:07 pm
a new tax a new wealth tax where they to tax the top one percent of richest people in g 7 countries an additional not point 5 percent on their wealth then it could raise over $200000000000.00 pounds a year now that's a huge sum of money that's enough to educate the $262000000.00 children across the world who are currently not in school and or so to have enough money left over to put money into health care and to fund. enough health care to save the lives of 2000000 people. so the big stories of the week now in the russian president has ordered the military to prepare a symmetrical response to the united states testing they previously banned missile last weekend that it may put in stress though that moscow will not be drawn into a destructive new arms race with washington following the collapse of the i.m.f. arms control treaty. i ordered the ministry of defense the ministry of foreign affairs and other cool offices to analyze the threat level created by the
3:08 pm
activities of the united states and to undertake comprehensive measures to prepare a symmetrical response besides russia is still open to an equal and constructive dialogue with the united states to recover trust and to reinforce international security the pentagon's test of a modified tomahawk cruise missile came just 2 weeks after the u.s. decided to kill off the longstanding intermediate range nuclear forces agreement the projectile test would have violated that accord which banned the production of certain land based short and mid range missiles. america's developments of the new weapons appears to be part of a broader attempt to counter rising china just this month the u.s. defense chief said he wants to see missiles deployed in the asia pacific region during the ire of both beijing and moscow with a look at the growing tensions here really a for trying. that was quick only last month this ground law inched smoking toy was illegal.
3:09 pm
it's already wiping out makeshift targets off the coast of california just like that and the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty is now part of history so soon be ready to see those in different parts of the world the pentagon boss was even quick to say they want to start with the asia pacific but russia is already worried about a different part of the world to eastern europe right near the russian borders as you can see american officials have said they're launching busy systems in romania and poland are different from the m.k. 41 used in california well the russian government's not buying it i'm going to put it to the american stability rejected this claiming that the ground based and k 41 new inching system was allegedly unable to launch tomahawk cruise missiles now the fact of the violation is evident it is impossible to disputed they themselves spoke about it and of course the question arises how can we now understand what will be
3:10 pm
located in romania and poland with the missile defense systems or missile strike systems sufficiently long range so why was the i.n.f. treaty signed by the u.s. and russian leaders more than 30 years ago so crucial to make sure that europe where nowadays america's nato allies and russia actually share a border doesn't turn into a vulnerable danger zone dotted with launch pads one following the test in california the u.n. security council convened this week the russian representative threw a question in european diplomats are you actually ready to find yourself in between 2 rivaling cruise missile arsenals. are you going to avoid responsibility for what is happening to future generations forgive you for this. russia's present actions are in line with a pattern of aggression that represents a clear threat to international peace and security of the russian federation because the sole responsibility for the reason demise of the treaty was it will be
3:11 pm
my just do not understand that by your responses to the americans you are returning to historical situation when missiles will target european cities from different sites well so far most european states have a grade with the us line d.c. kept blaming russia for violating the i.m.f. deal and that was exactly how they explained their own pull out there's nothing that russia can say osho to change the fact that russia has already tested the 979 cruise missile to ranges beyond 500 kilometers in violation of their treaty moscow's message has remained the same all claims that they were breaking the rules are a lawyer and on friday vladimir putin had a real go at the us government for what's seen in russia as completely twisting the reality in favor of uncle sam's ambitions. is pretty instead of fixing and unacceptable situation and returning back to compliance with the treaty
3:12 pm
the americans have orchestrated a propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia as is now clear this was just a smokescreen to hide washington's own breaches of the treaty and its intention to leave it but this will leave 0 doubt about america's real intentions having got rid of the existing limits is now free to deploy previously forbidden missiles anywhere in the world as i said earlier though in the 1st place washington's thinking over a bold chess move in the asia pacific not that brush is far from that area either but it's clear want countries on the mind of strategists and the scene in the 1st place people in the trump administration. yell that. they need to push back on beijing and a hard way they feel that they're running out of time feeling that china is getting stronger and they need to act fast to provoke china into some kind of military conflict all the things that involve china right now is really just
3:13 pm
a bigger is just a piece of the bigger picture of political tensions between us and china whether it's the trade war whether it's taiwan whether it's the hong kong protests. stay to be all that cruft groundbreaking aviation technology elite and ensure excitement building in the russian capital ahead of the 2019 and a show which is going on tuesday all correspondent don't cool too well no for sweep i'm going to have the scars. the russian team is preparing for an international aviation and space this is a major air show that's going to take place at the end of august and there's going
3:14 pm

3:15 pm
after we returned in one piece our pilot constantine told us all about the international aviation in space so long. i have been training for more than 10 years and i've been in the pilot for 4 years the air show include the mock featuring aerobatics performances and the standard maneuvers at championships rolls and loops etc the international tournament features competitors from. many european countries and known european countries including the us the year show is not a contest the contest happens at the championship with the aerobatics and other events so when the air show each group shows its skills and this big taters decide for themselves what they like of course we will show what we do best and what's new at the max our show starts on cheers day no doubt will be there this is our senior british royals trying to deflect the links to disgraced us millionaire paedophile
3:16 pm
geoffrey upstate is among all stories still ahead when we come back. manufacture consent to public will. when the ruling closest to protect themselves. in the final. week nor middle of the room. that's my life that i started on wall street 40 years ago and i've been living in
3:17 pm
a log serious life ever for money ever since literally not having to work a day in my life because the assets bought it 40 years ago have gone straight up. back to the weekly of this sunday's developments for you now with the israeli army says it's intercepted 2 rockets launched from gaza claiming 3 were fired at its territories it's developed in the comes after israel's believed to be behind a series of attacks in the region 2 drones laden with explosives under believed to be israeli crashed down in the lebanese capital overnight with lebanon's prime minister calling the incident an open attack on the country's sovereignty and a threat to regional stability it will actually shows the damage caused by the
3:18 pm
drives one hit the roof of hezbollah's media office. back to militarize political party in lebanon hezbollah leader said the group did not attack the drones but promised an imminent response should israel targeted members in the region. that incident occurred shortly after israeli warplanes fired on program targets near the syrian capital late on saturday described by telling it as preventing an imminent drone strike by iran israeli prime minister had this to say about the operation. if someone rowing is used to kill you will rise up and kill them 1st in a complicated operation by our security forces we determine the iran's quds force dispatched a special unit showing the militants into syria to kill israelis in the golan heights with explosive drones with great determination and imperfect israeli army operational in intelligence fashion we preempted them and thwarted this attack.
3:19 pm
now and defense a political commentator and they are our own welcome back to our to as i mentioned this drone incidents been described by lebanon as an attack on the country more generally a threat to regional stability now the israeli military been quiet about this so far and if it is israeli drones this will be the 1st attack since 2006 it's hard not to see how it could be a destabilizing move. indeed because there are rules and regulations de facto which have been established for the last 10 years that hizbollah nor israel launches any attack we've seen the country of lebanon or from lebanon into israel syria has been a very deadly playground between these 2 poppies the countries of israel and lebanon themselves have been out of bounds and the israeli military is mum
3:20 pm
about what transpired in beirut what was the purpose of these drones and this is distinct from the other 2 incidents which you just cited what happened very recently. the gaza israel border with rockets launched from gaza towards israel and what happened in syria not far from b. golan heights boundary where actually there were 2 incidents one was last thursday when these squads of pro uranian militiamen tried to launch these drones and apparently these israeli countermeasure team managed to jam them so they went back to their base through their civilian villa where they tried to fix the drones again and saturday night israel surprised them by preempting by bombing there. and there are living quarters israel's prime minister said that any country
3:21 pm
that allows its territory to be used for aggression against tel aviv will face consequences how close could this be to a full scale conflict to the north of the south to the east. well the east is a bit too far right now if you mean iraq and we'll get to iraq shortly. and south no not right now we're not on the eve of elections share drooled fora september the 17th but as for the north yes there is a problem there 1st of all syria is almost a no man's land be iranians and their proxies have been acting from syrian territory we some impunity israel tries to prevent death and actually this is a signal to bashar assad and to where every supporting assad regime might be in peril if he allows the arraignments to do it through israel now as for
3:22 pm
iraq which is don't you about the ground apparently the iranians are trying to transfer some of the new nations through that been known v.-i iraq 1st and then syria so israel has taken apparently 2 preempting movements these shipments by hitting targets in iraq so yes there again you have a new front flaring up it's a very dangerous powder keg yet the opening up all around with those elections looming ok for now in tel aviv i mean defense political commentator thanks again for your time this evening. thank you. next britain's prince andrew has broken his silence on his friendship with geoffrey epstein insisting he knew nothing of the convicted paedophiles illegal behavior the disgraced american finance or killed himself in jail this month while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but despite the jukes attempt to put an end to the speculation
3:23 pm
about their relationship he didn't explain why he continued to c.f.c. after the multimillionaire had served a sentence for soliciting prostitution from a minor. and no stage during the limited time i spent with him did i see witness or suspect any behavior of the sort as subsequently led to his arrest and conviction i met mr epstein in 1009 during the time i knew him i saw him infrequently in probably no more than once or twice a year i stayed in a number of his residences i've said previously that it was a mistake and an error to see him off his release in 2010 epstein's death has raised a lot of questions and prompted a huge amount of speculation so much so that his lawyers say they're not satisfied with the coroner's findings and plan to carry out their own investigation one major question is why epstein was taken off suicide watch despite previously having attempted to take his own life.
3:24 pm
and in more fallout a u.s. attorney general william boss sacked the director of u.s. prisons following epstein so aside from a money manager epstein was being held at a facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals alongside the likes of the notorious mexican drug baron known as out chapo we spoke to mark furnish
3:25 pm
a lawyer for the disgraced financier and el chapo. the conditions to which he was subjected would go even the needs of the strongest among us it's this is one of the toughest federal pretrial detention facilities in the country and the conditions are inhumane epstein was subjected to conditions that were similar to those of guzman but not remotely justified by his character or what he was accused of because he was not. a violent individual like chapo was alleged to have been he's not a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done. the real miracle is that we don't hear about these sort of things more about murdered pretrial detainees or suicidal pretrial detainees because the facility.
3:26 pm
is barbaric and it's a whole it's a it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort of like an american go log for people who have not yet been convicted of anything. one doesn't want to treat the symptom while ignoring the disease and the disease is how people are routinely denied bail with a shocking ease given the laws that congress passed allowing prosecutors and judge to do that. that's the way for this out thanks for watching next staying stateside for an unflinching look at gang culture in los angeles.
3:27 pm
what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. to go right to be press this is like the full 3 in the morning can't be good. you know world of big partisan movies a lot of things and conspiracy it's time to wade to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. know why a paradise with some around turned into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these
3:28 pm
chemicals have consequences they are major here tens there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments that often in day you have many of these people have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental racism going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. so right now we're driving through both neighborhoods and you can see time and distance from each gang. so this is jordan. this is the territory claimed by the
3:29 pm
green street crips during war time bonnie hunt is no less likely to come in here because this is one way in an art and one way out so once you come in and do a shooting you're trapped in their neighborhood and they can return fire so it's not the safest way to to avenge a shooting so often they'll go on the outskirts of the neighborhood hoping to get a great street kripke that's a lot of times when innocent people get shot. so in the next couple of days someone from this development most likely will go over towards nickerson like they have the last couple of days and commit a shooting and vice versa so all these neighborhoods now are in play. for him. several months ago. a gentleman with the moniker of menace from 15 hill was caught inside the gang territory of the village voice
3:30 pm
a couple of the village boys. went outside jumped on menace beat him down stuffed a minister ask you. and. they took the trash here and brought them back behind another house and tortured them they sodomized him they sliced him up with a machete and when they sliced him up they put in the end his chest the village voice. and then they continued to torture him then they wrapped him up in a rug burned and dumped him in long beach there's one thing about beating a guy down or killing them but the torture of the sodomy all that stuff that's that's just what gang members do so they found menace right around here beat him down put him in the trash can and then they will.
