networks would jeopardize their security so how real is this danger but 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 is 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 to iraq cess keyword anyone once you open the source code you can actually make changes to it that are actually going to keep you with the teacher and make sure that even if

a bid to attract younger and more environmentally conscious recruits not only will that give his considerable operational benefits reducing logistic drag 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 make career decisions based on a prospective employers 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 a 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

a. south korea has filed a complaint with the international olympic committee you have a japan's plan to use a military flag during next year's games in tokyo so insists the rising sun and it's no better than the nazis and the clinical and atrocities associated with it take as top official in charge of the 2020 lympics sees no problem with flying the imperial colors because it all takes a look at the long running feud between south korea and japan. 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.
2:14 pm
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
2:15 pm
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 speaks of its continued repent at the same time the japanese flag over. korean and chinese rooms repeatedly according to a lesser by south korea. *
2:16 pm
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 you saw the news the flex. shave or whatever doesn't like that i think they. stayed on the once so rebuild the relationship because they deny our forecasts i suppose koreans or even governments opinion i so for. that. you know little big or other are. inferior out there to feel heard. the only one to. restate their policy they should apologize sincerely to not only koreans but. to.
2:17 pm

2:18 pm
investigation into alleged police brutality training bodies and the police closing street was the protests started at the end of march since the activists have been blocking key sites every weekend they've mostly target the airports subway stations shopping malls and major roads locals as well as foreigners and now avoiding those areas on additional note the unrest has severely hit hong kong's tourist trade there's been a 40 percent 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 have seen occupancy rates drop to about hoff in some places some of the city's busiest districts are now half
2:19 pm
empty compare those pictures now to previous years when it was bustling and very busy on hong kong local business owners say they've been hit hard by the unrest but it's a nice this industry has indeed been he has really all of us mind only medium sized travel agency but it still has quite a few tour groups handle. the most important thing is this is not how will we don't want these rights to destroy our society we hope things are resolved as soon as possible and then we can work to try and do. back the confidence of tourists to visit hong kong 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. lad on the profound all us water security
2:20 pm
bubble to the service of the regulations on what chemicals can be used where water sources. this short break. this is our last show in paris and then we go on to other countries oh my so excited you know that you've heard about it we're going to talk about it we're going to talk about the french economy the uk they want to. we want a catalog republic because we think it would be geared to our people and we want to contribute to the well for europe into the european values of democracy of equality of dialogue of peace and we think that we are ready to
2:21 pm
contribute on our own to this new europe but it's part of the euro me the european community and constituency what's the big deal what's the problem why can't we accept that possibility in the 21st century. welcome back to the program the trumpet ministration the repeal of the clean water rule regulations that control the use of chemicals near water sources the idea is to ease the bureaucratic nonsense this also brought to the surface face that u.s. force security could be compromised. like most of us donald trump enjoys the occasional refreshing glass of clean water.
2:22 pm
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 definition to provide hardworking americans the ring the tories certainly 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
2:23 pm
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 drinking water and it's very important to us that now it's not the time to cut back on clean water protections now 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 it all up and r.t. new york a quick run through of some of today's other headlines around the world. starting in saudi arabia where all production is apparently being hard to as a result of huge fires or 2 major state run oil facilities but the rebels in
