this is. also coming up. i'm going to be meeting with chairman kim in the not too distant future. hopes of getting the stalled nuclear talks with north korea back on track. a stark warning the un's humanitarian chief says. any time in war torn. biggest competition in the u.k. but not painting in film digital imagery politics dominate. the u.s. is one russia is making a major mistake by deploying its state of the art missile defense system in syria the kremlin sending the s. three hundred system to syria week after one of its planes was mistakenly shot down by syrian anti-aircraft fire at the time syrian air defenses were responding to raids by israeli jets and latakia province reports. russia's s.
8:50 am
three hundred the air defense system that's russia has held off from supplying to the syrian military until now. within two weeks a modern surface to air missile system the s three hundred will be handed over it's capable of intercepting air assault weapons on a range of more than two hundred fifty kilometers and at the same time can hit multiple aerial targets having an advanced facility and high fire rate the system will strengthen syrian air defense combat capabilities significantly defense minister sure you gave little doubt why the russians have changed their position but you're cool it is you that has them going to let me make a point at the request of the israeli side and twenty thirteen we halted delivery of the s three hundred which was ready to be shipped to syria while syrian service personnel were given appropriate training today the situation has changed not by
8:51 am
our fault the defense ministry holds israel responsible for the deaths of fifteen military personnel a week ago their reconnaissance plane was misidentified and mistakenly shot down by syrian air defense admits the confusion of his radio strikes and israeli military delegation sent to moscow last thursday failed to convince the russians it was their fault. but interesting aspects of this rift is the way the ministry of defense approach differs from that taken by the kremlin the m.o.d.e. has kept pushing the view that israel is culpable but. his spokesperson have been soft pedaling saying it was just an unfortunate accident and that the s three hundred decision is not a that israel. israel has previously been able to count on russia turning a blind eye to its airstrikes inside syria of which there have been some two hundred in recent years but if damascus really does get its hands on s three
8:52 am
hundreds the israeli military will have to rethink its tactics. it was the first time in the history of the conflict that we see the syrian defense is equipped with a mother in. missiles that can deprive the israeli air force of from their freedom of movement and the syrian air space box is not just the israelis who will be affected by the booth u.s. national security adviser john bolton has called it a major mistake any other country operating in the region will now have to realize that syrian airspace isn't theirs to use it will reach out to zero mosque or among some accost he's a senior fellow at the atlantic council he says russia supplied syria with the system to send a political message you know this is an advanced system that the syrians have been seeking to get their hands on for many years russia essentially halted the delivery
8:53 am
because of israeli concerns and wider concerns about stability in the region clearly moscow has made the political decision based on this shoot down of its airplane that there is no need to withhold this equipment in the future obviously moscow i think also has grown frustrated with israeli impunity in striking syria and so this is to send a message that israeli actions are going to be limited in the near future because they're going to take into consideration a much more highly advanced anti aircraft and missile system. now year ago the u.s. president called the north korean leader a little rocket man in his debut speech at the u.n. general assembly but one iran donald trump is striking a much softer tone he said a second summit with kim jong un is likely raising hopes of reviving the stalled

8:55 am
