fact that she's indicted this is a sign that. the system and the police and the people of israel are not willing to accept such a criminal behavior and this is a bad sign for netanyahu because they will stop with the wife and i will finish with him. israeli prime minister understands all too well the position his wife has been in in february israeli police recommended that he be indicted but the two corruption cases i'm sure will be with you nothing slow i will continue to lead israel responsibly and faithfully as long as you the citizens of israel choose me to lead you i am certain i am certain that the truth will be revealed and i am certain that at the next elections which will be held on schedule i will earn your trust again the first involves lavish gifts of cigars and champagne offered to and according to leaks often requested by the prime minister and his wife given by billionaire friends israeli born hollywood mogul ana milton and a stray in tycoon james packer in the second case netanyahu is accused of trying to

business before building his own plastics factory the so much you know variable stuff that's packed into it and the minute you understand that you are christian much higher value maturity comes out from that once you see that as a potential you approach it totally differently you think about how we're going to strike that what resources i'm going to pick you know put into that and once was sure of that myself a posse pollution problem in disappear by itself see as company has increased the volume of waste it handles already this year by twenty eight percent developed countries have been looking for alternatives since china's ban on plastic waste imports took effect at the start of this year the u.k. for example has now tripled its exports of plastic waste to malaysia. some recycling companies here use a combination of local and imported waste but it's the important waste that's considered the better quality recyclables should be segregated at source but often than not divided up properly and become contaminated which means someone then has
to do the sorting out and the cleaning there were some concerns that china's ban would flood malaysia with more waste than it could handle and the government initially stopped issuing in what permits but it was only temporary. recycling or even. almost a year i think. for all of us for. fear. of more comfortable being around c.r. says countries need to start looking at the whole issue from a different perspective. his factory turns plastic scraps into industrial material as well as fuel to power machines proving that plastic waste shouldn't always be regarded as a problem florence really al-jazeera. that time is than on importing plastic waste means more business to other countries in asia such as malaysia as we've mentioned the u.s. and european countries that used to send their waste to china and now routing it to
vietnam thailand indonesia and also india data from the bureau of international recycling shows an increase in the import of plastic waste in these countries last year but they account for less than a third of what europe once shipped to china and joining us now on skype from singapore is kim standard he's the spokesman for the world wildlife fund fund kim thank you very much different being with us the plastic is as we know a huge environmental concern but just talk us through how much damage it imposes on society and also the environment. plastic problems we're trying to reach with global prices and chris is going to great we know there. are nine percent of blue plastic to recycle but this point we do every single piece of interest aren't there. and we just we have every single.
change. so then what can be done to change the mindsets and also habits to use alternatives. well the one i think is really awareness and understanding of each and every individual that whatever we do now is going to pick at least the next sixteen year generations and at the same time really. come to get her that means governments n.g.o.s and businesses to tackle this problem and we've seen really examples in many nations where where research really virus ships come in and really tackle the recycling problem as well as the reduction of plastics could you give us some examples of the nest has a model that you think of the country to be following absolutely i mean one of the very very successful models is what we call extended produce responsibility so these cases the government comes in and. increases
a little bit of the pressure on the producer site and choice and collectors activation as well as recycling is peeled more by and accompanies the print plastics into the market and then allows in return the worst will collect plastics segregate the better clean them and will ensure a great recycling of the products and resources that we usually forward. so if this actually can be effective but i wonder if the complete ban on plastic asenath. it really depends on what kinds of plastics we differentiate of course between single use of our engine nine percent of them are inclusion of that six goes back to single use test items like bags there are straws and others and i think these products can easily be replaced they're really just for convenience and if you really take a step back to see that it can be commonsense or a little bit because we just cross something or we perceive convenience and i think
we've seen examples in many countries where let me see these products for example twenty cent oaky cent are plastic backed can really use the use of these plastic bags up to eighty percent even in a person here so it's really a mix of regulation as well as businesses and individuals stepping up to to really solve the problem ok i can thank god thank you so much for taking the time to speak to us. now sunning upset has the runner up at the last football world cup facing an early exit argentina have been beaten three know by croatia in the group stages and that's left croatian found some are breaking their side making the moscow sixty knockout stages of the tournament in russia another set of happy fans are the french their team one of the twenty men favorites have also qualified for the knockout stages off to beating peru one. and we'll have all the action from those matches and much more on

in recent yaz doesn't come back again the reason why there are no talks or increase in production is to jump on that volatility i gave the market the consumers everybody enough certainty and sense of security of supply to keep markets in a cult a situation in june twenty fourth teen opec oil was trading at one hundred ten dollars a barrel by january two thousand and sixteen it had dropped to just twenty five dollars a barrel now thanks to opec limiting supply it's recovered to around seventy three dollars a barrel but there is dispute over what the ideal price should be. the saudi crown prince was warmly welcomed in moscow last week the two countries firmly agreed on the need for high oil production however coming into this week's meeting opec member iran supported by venezuela and iraq was threatening to veto any easing of
