a. president let's be straightforward with each other hunger is going to be condemned because hungary and people have decided that this country is not going to be a country of migrants with all due respect but very firmly i have to refuse threats the blackmail and defamation by forces supporting immigrants and migrants against hungary and hungary and people i must state that whatever you decide hungry will protect its borders stop illegal immigration and defend its rights if needed we will stand up against you to. what ash has been following events for us in strasbourg. well hungry is far right prime minister viktor orban came to strasbourg to defend himself and his policies and he gave a very defiant speech to any peace here the e.u. parliament he said that the european parliament was basically trying to blackmail him he's already accused them of launching a witch hunt against hungry now what m.e.p.a. s.
are doing is debating whether or not to punish hungry because they say that hungary is basically eroding e.u. principles and values flouting the very foundations that the european union is built on better talking about things like restriction of rights and freedoms in hungary and civil liberties they're also talking about the rights of refugees and migrants also being severely eroded over the last few years if you think back to twenty fifteen during europe's migration crisis it was hungry that built a fence along the border with serbia and croatia or what any piece will be doing on wednesday is voting on whether to launch article seven that is the use highest punishment if you will and what that could mean is that hungary could possibly lose its e.u. council voting rights that would be of course a big blow to hungary in terms of its international standing.
the u.s. ambassador nikki haley is accused syria's president bashar assad and his allies russia and iran of demolishing the last major rebel held stronghold in syria she says russia must act to stop the looming humanitarian catastrophe in ed lab well over three million people reside. let's not waste time with the december mation distractions and outright lies that the assad regime and their russian and iranian partners constantly use to distort this conversation let's talk about the facts on the ground in syria this month already the world has seen a clear military escalation in. russian and assad regime air forces launched over one hundred airstrikes they are using barrel bombs rockets and
artillery they are targeting hospitals and medical facilities where russia's u.n. ambassador insists russia iran and turkey have committed to ending what he called terrorism an adlib he also denied reports that the syrian government is planning a chemical attack that jacobabad is just gossip gossip who knew who. allegedly president assad old of the use of chlorine the syrian authorities have no intention of doing this they do not have chemical weapons once again we ask you to hit was when we're saying that the use of chemical weapons by damascus from a military viewpoint cannot be justified meanwhile delegations from russia iran and turkey have all been meeting in geneva for a second day of talks on the expected offensive the discussions were led by the un special envoy to syria to find a mr s. and ended with no comment from the policies involved the u.n. says thousands of people have been displaced in the rebel help province because of
continued syrian and russian ass strikes the chinese president xi jinping says that russia and china should work together to oppose trade protectionism she made the comments following a meeting with the russian leader vladimir putin at the eastern economic forum in of light of our stock it comes as the two nation states that biggest war game since the fall of the soviet union mobilizing some three hundred thousand troops or a challenge has more from vladivostok. with the slight awkwardness of two leaders who probably don't spend much time in the kitchen sheeting paying hands bloody made through tin conducted some pancake diplomacy and blood of all stock the chinese president is here for the eastern economic forum and his meeting with putin this year despite the presence of other asian leaders it's russia and china is strengthening ties that are the bedrock of this event and with caviar and vodka the two presidents were happy to let the world know how close they become we were
constantly meeting this year for example in beijing in johannesburg and now here we are involved as a hostile if we keep close contact with you it means we have good relations i am ready to strengthen these relations from now on including the exchange of ideas through close cooperation china has the largest delegation with almost a thousand people it is quite clear we have a really close cooperation we had eighty seven billion dollars of trade last year this year will almost certainly reach one hundred billion dollars the corporation makes sense the two eurasian giants are next door neighbors and china is hungry economy needs natural resources which russia has in abundance this growing relationship is about more than just the kind of business and energy deals on offer here at the eastern economic forum it's about the threats that both russia and china feel a share in the modern world. while she jinping and putin were talking the heavy metal of russia's military was moving into place china's two it's been invited to
take part in last october two thousand and eighteen russia's biggest war games since one thousand nine hundred one a sign of friendship and a message to one particular dresser in the early we can see continued. between russia and china because of or very assertive line of the united states. against both countries and in this regard because we are. major path through. the relationship washington has imposed sanctions on russia times trade tariffs on china each country is too independent minded to make a full alliance it's likely but they still want the us to know that if a regional crisis ever exploded into conflicts russia and china could present a united front. how does it look. brazil's workers'
party has agreed to court orders to replace former president. as its candidate for the october elections. a twelve years sentence for corruption he will instead be replaced with the former south. dad let's get more on this now from our last america. who joins us from. is currently in jail and so we finally have a decision from the workers' party we know now will not be standing in the election . yes that is right is right that is at least what we think we know because this keeps changing all the time i'm standing right outside the federal police the city where luna has been held up where he's been imprisoned basically since april and we are surrounded here by hundreds of his supporters from the workers' party all of them waiting for the official announcement to be made by. another top
leading members of the workers' party including former president. also expected to be here but this was supposed to have been announced more than an hour ago and people are beginning to wonder why it hasn't happened yet there is an injunction request that still in place but we understand that there has been no response to that and so the party did forward or at least announced that they would be making. their presidential candidate but for these people. it is really rule out who is still their candidate and in fact the slogan they're shouting isn't had that prince either. is innocent and lives so he's basically a stand in a substitute for lula when they still regard as their leader and he says he will continue to fight for his innocence continue to appeal the sentence but the time has run out for registering a candidate that intra day and so had bad as it is now going to be the workers' party candidate and so how is this likely to impact the election given newness
continued popularity in the country because. that is the fifty million dollar question a lot of people say that it is impossible to transfer list popularity to anybody else but that is still that hasn't been proven yet some people here say that for them lula is the only candidate but others are saying that it doesn't matter who the person is that they would be happy to accept how bad as would a substitute as long as the policies are the same and that's something that they're going to really have to push forward and convince the electorate of that in that in the next three weeks remember these elections are just on the seventh of october it's just around the corner it's taken so long to announce had that that he's not going to have a lot of time to campaign it's going to be a real battle thank you very much out last in america at a ten you seen the new scene human with overladen brazil. still ahead for you on the program activists set up makeshift camps in the palestinian village which is
