go. to the world this is r.t. international from the team and myself you know alone welcome. chinese. way it's prepared to sell the core code of its 5 g. technology to any prospective western buyer firms or indeed nations could then reconfigure it and prevent any possibility of a security breach the news comes amid continued claims by washington that way works
in cahoots with the chinese government on its equipment could be used to spy on users. takes a closer look at the company's offer. it's one of this year's biggest spy scandals hallway the chinese telecoms giant accused of using cutting edge 5 d. technology not for the good of humanity but for spying for beijing the united states has also been very clear with our security partners on the threat posed by the way as chinese law requires them to provide beijing's vast security apparatus with access to any data that touches their network or equipment so grave was the threat so real apparently the risk that american citizens privacy could be in danger the president trump declared a national emergency then like wildfire concerns spread around the world courtesy of u.s. officials that any country cooperating with huawei on building phone or computer networks would jeopardize their security so how real is this danger not at all who
always c.e.o. shore's us but he would say that right well here's the deal the company has come up with an unexpected offer to reassure its western clients when we transfer the tac they can modify codes on top of my tech once that's through it's not only shielded from me it's shielded from everybody else in the world u.s. 5 g. will be their own thing there's no security concern the concern will only be the u.s. keeping the american companies who bought it in check so what does it all mean well who are we would sell its blueprints codes peyton's everything needed for the client to rewrite the code and thus prevent anyone being able to get back door access keyword anyone once you open the source code you can actually make changes to it that are actually going to keep you with all teach and make sure that even if there were that tools it would be very difficult i think wanted to persist with obviously absent there is that they exist and i think what we're going to see is
continuing to catch up with all the abilities that will be people continually seeking. to take it on to. but if they don't open source code. they're going to be the hackers they're going to get a massive disadvantage to them about so if that's not enough always chairman even offered to sign a no surveillance pact with the countries in which the company operates no spying no back doors so with this unprecedented offer of compromise from the telecoms giant while the panic and harsh rhetoric well remember when we said anyone spying one acts as the source codes will hamper beijing spying it will be an equal blow for other countries as well the united states for example who are really who are going to blow it all and whoever's take it all to their license who are the source code. you need to be able to trust the organisation and there are any number of man of the actual result they're working with this moment in time all of them have had
vulnerabilities in the glass that existed and they've been patched to different elements many of them still have got rebuilt is out there that they haven't touched yet and possibly haven't been discovered but the question is are the actively government entities that have engineered that goes into this equipment will remember all those times washington got caught in the act by whistleblower edward snowden revealed years of interceptions by the national security agency of servers routers and other network a quip meant made by cisco things were so out of control the company's management even went to the u.s. president to complain we simply cannot operate this way our customers trust us to be able to deliver to their doorsteps products that meet the highest standards of integrity and security so who always seems to have made an offer that's hard to refuse no spine full control for the companies involved and seemingly no more security concerns the ball is now firmly in the critics court.
moving on the british army is mulling replacing its fossil fuel goes lng equipment with eco friendly versions that's according to the country's chief of general stuff now as polly boyko explains there is a wider trend of western armies trying to attract minority and green conscious new recruits. they might be in the business of killing but they don't want to kill the environment while they're at it the british army is going green general so mark colton smith has said that british forces are going to be phasing out the use of thirsty gas guzzling military vehicles and equipment in favor of plugging in take cleaner technologies it's all in a bid to attract younger and more environmentally conscious recruits not only
will it give us considerable operational benefits reducing logistic grab but it will also get the army on the right side of the environmental argument especially in the eyes of our next generation of recruits who increasingly might career decisions based on a prospective employer is environmental credentials earlier this year the british army launched a new recruitment drive targeted at young people the campaign emphasise that the army could use the compassion of snowflakes the self belief of millennial zz the confidence of selfie take is and the focus of phone zombies and the push for greener and more inclusive army isn't limited to the u.k. if u.s. democratic party presidential candidate elizabeth warren gets her way the american army will be adding fighting climate change to its to do list we don't have to
choose between a green military and then a factor one why plan. servicemembers readiness and safety and the chief cost savings for american taxpayers together we can fight climate change and doing military exercises are notoriously bad for the environment munitions can take hundreds of years to degrade and toxic materials like lead. can spill out and pollute ground water back in 2017 the u.s. government put out a request for the development of environmentally friendly training bullets both the u.s. and u.k. militaries seem determined to put the eco into warrior and recruit some of them at the same time that's great brilliant good for them i don't know if that's necessarily a thing that's going to attract young people necessarily think hey i did i maybe we
were some people. i wouldn't be trying to train the army but i'm sure it would be better for some people like green eggs. i've never thought about. but i don't consider that likely but i think right to be on it seems to be dog but. not doing very. well going green is a good idea entirely sure how it's going to attract young people at the end of it do you want to be put in a foreign mine and get killed you know does it matter what you drink you coffee or over what you got this money out of. for an eco friendly ending for the scene of an out of that but personally the fact that during an army doesn't kind of speak to me in theory it sounds like a good idea but whether it would actually work you know really manning who's going to go and fight and that's what we need to do you know. not very well have a call. korea has filed
a complaint with the international olympic committee over japan's plan to use a military flowing during next year's games in tokyo so insists the rising sun emblem is no better than the nazi swastika represents japanese colonial rule on atrocities associated with it to accuse top official in charge of the 2020 olympics sees no problem with flying the imperial college. it has a lot of takes a look now at the decades long feud between seoul and tokyo. this flag is the thing setting apart south korea and japan for almost the whole past decade you might not see anything wrong with it but for more than a 1000000000 korean and chinese people it's no different to a swastika during the 2nd world war the japanese empire made this image of the banner for atrocities which rival the darkest crimes of adult hitler.
the row over the flag largely dates back to 2011 when the nation's football teams met on the pitch to witness the image being literally waved in their faces and since then so has repeatedly asked tokyo to abandon the symbol the latest being their request for the 2020 olympics which japan rubbished the flag itself is not considered to be a political statement so it is not viewed as a prohibited item so now so has reached out to the international olympic committee directly we emphasized that the use of the rising sun flag during the tokyo lympics would be a direct violation of the olympic spirit promoting world peace and love for humanity
and at the international olympic committee should have the tokyo organizing committee prepare strict measures to prevent it from being brought to stadiums just last week tokyo snubbed an international fleet review in south korea over the demands to abandon any hoisting of the controversial image symbols of nazi germany have been outlawed and to this day on solemn occasions berlin speed. it's continued repent at the same time the japanese flag opens old korean and chinese rooms repeatedly according to a lesser by south korea. *
and plenty of south koreans agree with the official line one of the reason for doing olympics is he's so if you or anyone of his insulin use the flex it's to shave or whatever doesn't like that i think they. say that on the want to rebuild the relationship because they deny our forecasts i suppose. governments opinion i so for. you says that. you know little big or other are. inferior out there to feel heard. the only one to receive a call if they should apologize was sincerely to not only koreans but. to. the countries. which they affected or concords
i think 1st of all people had to know about the history and that the abbott government had made their forwards. and maybe we can. get better relations. let's move to hong kong were pro. on t.v. government protests have erupted there for yet another week and it is the 15th in a row scuffles have broken out between the opposing sides of a shopping center in the city was police are on the scene dealing with the incident the initial demonstrations were sparked this is months ago by an extradition bill put forward earlier in the year but grew into
a wider pro-democracy movement while it was announced that the bill will be withdrawn protesters still wait for their other demands to be met by them to ease the investigation of alleged police brutality during rallies on the release of those arrested for the protests started out the end of march and since then activists have been blocking key sites every weekend they've mostly targeted the territory's airport subway stations shopping malls and major roads as well local foreigners 2 are avoiding those places the on rest are severely hit on calls tourist trade there's been a 40 percent drop in visitors are news wall here is going to show you just have a visceral that is that's a drop in visitors in august compared to the same month last year over the past few months the local social unrest particularly the continued vandalism and disruption to the airports and roads has damaged hong kong's image as
a safe city the tourism retail and hotel sectors are suffering the most. the finance minister we just heard from also noted that hotels occupancy rates dropped to about half in some places some of the city's busiest districts are not empty we've got a split screen here just showing the. on the left it's pretty much today on the right last year you can just see where it was bustling very very busy indeed at local business owners say they've been hit hard by the on the rest. when it's a night this industry has indeed been he has all of us minds on the medium sized travel agency but he still has quite a few to handle. the most important thing is that this is no will we don't want these rights to destroy our society we have things a result of this soon as possible and then we can work to try and win back the confidence of tourists to visit. my drivers have made no money for 3 consecutive
months and i hope things can be settled as soon as possible so peace can be restored to hong kong then our tourism industry can get back to normal we should promote hong kong and get it back to what it was before so that people feel hong kong is the safest city and the best destination for tourism. in the program a subject that is being spoken about more and more fears for us water security helping to the surface crops regulations on where i like those can be used near water sources story done. this.
son and afternoon here in moscow 19 minutes past 3 pm welcome to the administration the repeal of the clean water rule let's break that down other regulations that control the use of chemicals near water sources know the idea is to ease the bureaucratic burden on firms but it's also brought to the surface fears that u.s. water security could be compromised. like most of us donald trump enjoys the occasional refreshing glass of clean water. but he doesn't seem as keen to keep the water clean as his predecessor trump has recently lifted obama era restrictions and regulations on the spraying of chemicals
and pesticides near streams wetlands and other bodies of water in new wood is a definition that provides hardworking americans the ring of tory certainty the need to invest and develop and build new projects that improve lives in the environment so what has changed well during the obama era if you wanted to use certain chemical pesticides and sprays in your body of water you needed a permit now you don't there's certainly going to be a lot of rejoicing about this from certain sectors many american farmers and manufacturers felt that they were being crushed by the obama era regulations intended to curb water pollution it would be great if farmers didn't have to hire an army of consultants and lawyers just to be able to farm now the new rules are being criticized as overly vague with the decision about what bodies of water get protected being decided on a case by case basis now the farmers are overjoyed but that feeling is not being shared by people in communities that depend on streams and rivers many seats in
town sell even with unsafe. and it's very important to us that now it's not the time to cut back on clean water protections that the american farmers haven't been too keen on donald trump lately due to his trade war with china so perhaps rolling back these clean water regulations will help when i'm some point with the agricultural sector regardless environmentalists are up in arms but as many gamblers have said before you can't win them all. artsy new york right let's chronicle know with some news in brief from around the world starting in. saudi arabia rebels say they were behind drone attacks that caused major fires at 2 oil facilities in saudi arabia the saudi interior ministry did not specify if there were any casualties saying an investigation is on going now the saudi led coalition intervened in yemen in 2015 to fight the rebels who had seized

more diverse think looting in schools but the shelves article are plenty of people to. another nail in the coffin of the word racism having any meaning left whatsoever shame of colonisation food activist stick a fork in it's we're done no wait not a fork that's racist culture isn't a race when will people learn the difference between culture and race. you know we all have different cultural norms and certainly if when you come from a certain from a certain country there are variations of customs depend on where you live shelter in they learn their customs and culture a city in that their own table so when they travel someplace else especially young children they are not going to know now as adults we do our homework and if we are conducting business in another country we certainly want to learn customs and we
all have basic rules of conduct at the table when you visit another country you always want to do your homework in advance much like the way that we drive much like the way that we tip in different society in different cultures because it all varies if someone comes to another country and they have a different a different mannerism or a different custom we don't want to berate them for using their customs we as as guests at a table always want to be accommodating to fellow guests and we want to treat everyone with respect and i think that's what it boils down to is being respectful of another person this is our to international we are coasting to some more great programs in moments. but news continues with me at the top of the hour don't go too far.
