headlines on aussie international president. down on his father and fury warning to north korea and china both sides to deescalate the situation. frankly the people who would think that statement was. maybe it was. a russian family who say they recognize a relative in a video film crew. and if you take a group called the. council which attended an elegy. feeding hysteria. we invited opposing sides to debate. the
folbigg all can i say should they all respond. to. leave their religion and then be silent about. the well being victimized by muslim states isn't. adequate friday morning here in the russian capital thanks for joining us. president has refused to back down on his threat to bring fire and fury to north korea and made global calls for deescalation. the story. frankly the people that would course think that statement was too tough maybe it wasn't tough enough i want to read. this not make it work threats to the united
states. they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see it's a very terrifying question what could possibly be more intense than fire and fury when trump was asked he just ominously responded with you'll see but it is clear that he has no plans to back down whatsoever because that is there it's a state that has nothing to do with there that's a statement not terms remarks are just the latest in a series of aggressive exchanges between the president n.p.r. netting but has escalated to the point of north korea state media outlining a possible plan to attack the u.s. territory of guam a threat that trump says kim jong own will not get away with and when the question was posed to the president if americans should be frightened by the current state of affairs trump said in fact the opposite is true that north korea should be the nervous party here if. north korea does anything in terms of even thinking about attack. of anybody that we love or we represent do or our allies or us
they could be very very nervous i'll tell you what they should be very very good as things will happen to them like they never thought possible north korea better get their act together where they're going to be trouble like few days should ever have been a drum for in this world now while term profuse a comment on whether the u.s. was considering a preemptive strike against pyongyang he spoke about the importance of the u.s. military and his plans to drastically beef up their defense budgets by quote many billions of dollars and this is all because of the threat posed by north korea in a strange twist while term spoke of strengthening america's arsenal he also warned that nuclear power is the world's greatest threat stating that he would like to denuclearize the world. on wednesday he tweeted about the us this strong and powerful new killer stockpile hinting that it could be used if necessary so while other nations are still pushing for a democratic resolution threat flying back and forth seem to be pushing the world
closer and closer to the edge of war with possible nuclear implications china meanwhile has condemned trump's fire and fury remarks beijing warned the u.s. president against playing with fire over north korea it said any accidental spark could trigger a conflict and it looks like relations between china and the u.s. support coming more tense as well beijing has been angered by an american destroyer sailing close to a chinese island in the disputed south china sea well the washington thinks it's done nothing wrong. the u.s. destroyer his actions have violated chinese and international rules as well as severely homed china's sovereignty and security china will bring up the issue with the u.s. side the united states does these operations the freedom of navigation operations all around the world this is nothing new we've done it before we'll continue to do it steadily for provocative it's clearly an area that china wants to exercise.
control over to some degree or at least have keep or at least keep other military powers out of the region but in light of other things going on the the real pressure on china to act tougher on north korea by the trump administration i think this will be seen is as another a more aggressive stance of the trumpet ministration and it will heighten tensions it further as you've just heard the latest incident in straining already tense relations between the u.s. and china a president frequently blamed beijing for failing to put any pressure on north korea china has been openly criticizing trump's aggressive line demanding dialogue with pyongyang and america's are close allies britain and germany have joined that cole saying the u.s. president should deescalate tensions while at home trumps also facing opposition. person interims escalatory rhetoric is exactly the wrong response to dealing with north korea's provoke behavior it unnecessarily heightens the risk of
miscalculation and creates the very food that can lead to i don't see the plus in these threats were we getting something in return from these president's threats i don't see it i've never seen the tension so high in the korean peninsula i'm extremely concerned i hope the president's advisors rein him in general kelly you know the new chief of staff he's got to tell the president you can't conduct foreign policy the way you're doing with words with fiery words exchanges stooping to the level of camp joe moon in the north koreans who generate this rhetoric almost every day but this rhetoric has gotten a lot more intense also from the north korean side and a comments have not gone unnoticed on social media as well as twitter users are getting the impression that trump is becoming more like a character from a popular t.v. series kind of muppet has more when donald trump threaten north korea with fire and
fury everyone online apparently had the same thought game of thrones north korea. best not make it with threats to the united states. they will be met with five years if you. like the world as never see. now arguably the only other world leader who's tirade sound as much like a fantasy villains is kim jong un so we decided to go out and give americans on the street a little quiz will give them the quote and they tell us was it was it kim jong un or was it game of thrones the days are gone forever when our enemies could blackmail us game with their own game of thrones. game of thrones out. donald trump game of thrones. that's kim jong un ok all right. i try to know as many people as i can you never know which one you'll need. non-neutral also

russia's chechen republic rallies on cut it off it was followed that this some of the relatives then contacted us a lot but on guy's d.f. now i joining us live this morning good morning to you but i do your and august on right now what if you manage to find out about these children. when the number of families of saying they've recognize their relatives the moment the children that we've. in that all footage among them is one woman who says she's the young i lead boy that was also filmed in the orphanage she said to us a picture and that is a definitive proof the resemblance is certainly there in the striking says that leaves parents his mother and his father packed up one day and told all their relatives that they were moving to more scope for work they took the children and the next time they called they called from stumble in turkey after that nobody

by their parents which is why it is super important to get these children out of the get their relatives here to recognize them and to take them mean. what i've got to thank you. a group in the u.k. you calling itself the x. muslim council has been starring controversy members attended an elegy bt parade in london on tuesday they held up banjos denouncing islam and accusing muslims of homophobia in particular they blame the east london mosque for promoting hatred towards homosexuality according to the group this mosque quote has a long history of hosting hate preachers now the east london mosque has responded accusing the group of feeding anti islamic hysteria but the ex muslim council refuses to apologize saying it does not need anyone's permission to march for the rights of the l g b t community and while we heard contrasting views on this.
a to do get people is always wrong with a big muslim or anyone else but criticizing bigoted intolerant ideas is entirely right and proper i hold the likes of peter who i have a lot of respect for the human rights stuff that he's done over the years he's deeply misguided that what he supports an organization that has made it mission to demonize islam and the religious belief of muslims in this country around the world many of us who are marching or individuals from muslim heritage so i myself am a british pakistani who grew up as a gay individual in with and this is my community i have no interest in galvanizing hate against muslims because i will be subjected to that same hate this group was targeting islam must homophobia it wasn't targeting muslim people or even islam in
general or the council of muslims has never criticized or condemned muslim people it is only condemned and criticized is the most extremists who advocate hatred and violence against the people if these people have left and that's their right let's accept that they got a right to live there why are they constantly upset. they need to get a life move on enjoy their life on their new freedom as they tell is asking us to leave the religion and then be silent about. kin across the world who are being victimized by muslim states is a request they are rampant islam the four big organization they are responsible for promoting hatred against muslims now let's just say that is there a council of christians is there a council of jews a council of x. induce a council of x x where religion is legislating against people like gays we were

now after the syrian army has made so many victories elsewhere of the cease fire agreement which was reached between russia the u.s. and jordan a soft western syria that is apt to actually allow the syrian armed forces to dedicate. more and free basically freed up more of syria's military to go ahead and launch this attempt to break the siege off we have to think about what's beyond syria's role regionally because they those orders an important a linkage area i think that the more and more likely the syrian army will achieve victory and they resort to the more and more likely you might see israel and saudi arabia two of america's main allies in the region trying to obstruct or prevent such a scenario from being for. private jets and lavish hotels are not just the reserve over the rich and famous these days a newly released details show commissioners racked up bills of potentially millions
of euros simply on foreign joints of course with the eye watering tabs left to be picked up by e.u. taxpayers. visit. by john the first visits to your country our meetings today encounter with foreign minister discussion good discussions on a range of issues a wide range of issues and also talked a lot. of
european commission i'm presiding over is not a group of technocrats but it's composed of politicians this is not a commission that would promote the virtues of a foolish and blind policy. but it's not only about money. even if it doesn't. it doesn't play a minor role. leverage lifestyles of e.u. officials were only exposed after campaigners waved her three year battle for the release of travel expense records and we spoke to the spanish transparency ngo access info which first obtained the documents they say they've only scratched the surface. hundred twenty requests made freedom of information access to documents requests was actually for the whole year of twenty six thing however the commission decided unilaterally to only release information at this point for january and february twenty sixth they felt that it was an advantage to do and it was disproportionate to release information for the whole year now about doesn't
seem to make sense given that they also have this information passed on to the auditor's into the parliament so if the data is already collected and is made available to those. institutions then why can't it be made public more generally an e.u. spokesperson has defended the travel expenses but critics say sometimes it's difficult to see where the value for money. the the european commission we and unlike national governments don't own any airplanes and do not have the flexibility to therefore it's just our own plane that's why we have to guard. needs whenever there is no other civility you know that you need for in a commercial flight would not be viable because of then the countering of the clinic agent or because of security reasons often really people tell me these are expensive trips and then they just come out with fairly innocuous statements at the
end of them that they really achieve much less the company benefits from face to face meetings if so you know it's good that there is a focus on those problems in armenia and azerbaijan but really hasn't been much progress for a long time now given they all spending taxpayers' money they ought to try and get those places as cheaply as possible within reason and if you look at for example it's a mr young because troops are right there are several direct flights from brussels to write every single day on normal sehgal their lines so why couldn't they have called on those normal slice instead of booking this private jets. a german journalist has found herself making the news as opposed to reporting on it that's after she claimed in an interview that german media is biased towards the government in its coverage of the refugee crisis claudio's him and said journalists are instructed to report in a pro-government way when it comes to the migrant crisis adding that they are compelled to cover the issue in a positive light the revelation was made back in january twenty sixth injuring an
interview about the cologne sex attacks she gave to a dutch radio station it's a topic zimmerman has covered extensively our sister channel. spoke exclusively to the journalist in the middle of the controversy. journalists tend to support chancellor merkel's refugee policy throughout the media not just at w d r some journalists including me tried to pitch more pritikin stories but they were not approved that's why i spoke out stories that failed to welcome all support this policy of being blocked honestly at first i did not understand the situation the whole situation that occurred because of this as the w d r stated there was a lot of damage in the public field i cooperated and did everything possible to minimize the damage of the w.t.r. i'm still officially not fired they just don't approve my pictures my topics haven't changed yet but it suddenly turned out that i'm not trustworthy in
a report published in june this year claimed media outlets are closing their eyes to the concerns and fears of the german population with regard to the country's migration policy claudio zimmerman claims there are topics journalists want to cover but are simply not allowed. i would have wished that many more colleagues dared to do more critical coverage the pressure comes from the top to down i know from some colleagues that there are certain topics which they would like to cover but these topics were not approved because they were too critical because they don't fit the format of the program i think it's significant it would be significant for journalism in germany we're back with more of your worldwide headlines here on r.t. international in about thirty three minutes. social environment. with. chemical discoveries over the last century made every day
