good evening welcome is just turned five o'clock here in moscow you're watching the weekly here on r.t. international. now north korea state television has announced that the country successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test the announcement came after an earthquake measuring around six on the richter scale was detected in north korea it took place in the country's north eastern province is felt in neighboring china and russia donald trump has reacted to north korea's latest nuclear test saying the country continues to be hostile and dangerous to the u.s. a partridge has more. but it's stormy here in china in the senate a storm seems to be burning over the korean peninsula as well u.s. president donald trump has tweeted his response to the latest nuclear test for north korea north korea has conducted a major nuclear test their words and actions continue to be very hostile and
dangerous to the united states he goes on to say north korea is a robot nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to china which is trying to help but with little success well this is north korea's first nuclear test during the trumpet ministration the last one came in september twenty sixth and here's some of the rhetoric from president trump that preceded the latest test north korea better get their act together or they're going to be trouble like your day should ever have been to trouble in this world. and this man will not get away with what he's doing believe they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never seen before meanwhile donald trump is sends another tweet he says that south korea responding as i have told them that their talk of appeasement with north korea will not work they only understand one thing meanwhile the u.s. sound south korea have been carrying out military drills across the peninsula and
japanese fighter planes have also been flying overhead much to the annoyance of p.r.n. young and south korea has also stratton's escalation. we decided to discuss with the u.s. the deployment of the most powerful strategic assets of the american military that would enable us to neutralize north korea's nuclear facility and missiles i am sure will strike the capabilities. for me while china and russia have both condemned the latest nuclear test but moscow is emphasizing that the time is now for negotiations and a return to dialogue rather than military escalation of the kremlin believe that the only way forward is through dialogue talking. about the situation in korea as opposed to anything else partridge there in china we discussed the escalation of tensions with independent agent strategist andrew k.p. learned he believes that the u.s. administration's approach is partly to blame for the volatile situation on the korean peninsula what the last korean war of course because the war would mean the
demise of the regime what we want is on our own cars assurance are of the region's the ability of the united states trying the administration believes that be a solution is through military means that's the only tool in the in in in the work it only hasn't proved to be successful is a lot of even was silent theory but i don't think it's going to solve the problem as has been demonstrated i think the time for coercion is over got to move on to a korean peninsula stability pact in warring all the countries in the region perhaps should course make sure that there is that the on all sides and of course were americans too to a lot of the rhetoric but also military exercises and a lot of threats only stabilize the system. in other news tonight the
russian foreign ministry has said that washington is demanding moscow sells its diplomatic properties to the u.s. but after those posts were closed and searched on washington's orders stuff were blocked from accessing the buildings of russia's conscious in san francisco and also a trade mission in washington d.c. this video fact is from inside the trade missions premises minutes before it was close and as you can see more or less everything had been already cleared leaving only empty shelves and kori doors the diplomatic staff were given very short notice to to leave the site only thirty six hours. and in san francisco searches were being conducted not only on the premises of the diplomatic site but also in the apartments of staff members and their families moscow has slammed the move as a deeply hostile act aimed at undermining u.s. russia relations with more on that is needed.
what we do have is a number of videos to show the facility in san francisco when the inspection took place and you can see from one of the videos that the security officials who are actually searching the apartments for the residence still in there the trade facility in washington is also being searched and the head of the trade mission has told journalists that who feels that the search is. an example of vandalism in international relations it's another. russian corporate . we haven't been expecting so she wanted gas. to stupid am local time the u.s. doesn't think we have to go magic immunity and there's also been other reactions and we had reaction from the russian foreign ministry the spokes person there has slammed the search and i read this that you as a diabolical circus that's illegal and pointless and we just have to take note
here that the diplomats and their families only had two days to vacate their properties there now if we look at the reasons the u.s. has stated that this is a response to russia's decision to reduce the size of the u.s. mission in russia back in july twenty seventh teen we've also had a reaction from the russian foreign minister himself so good i've spoken out about the decision to close the facilities is also said that russia is not the instigator of those moves measures or this. story was not launched by russia it was started by the u.s. administrator with the only purpose of us russian relations completely u.s. we're not seeking conflict with this going through always been friendly towards the american people and we're still open to constructive relationships but as you know it takes two to tango now it looks like our american partners are breakdancing on time all the time so as you can see the relations between the u.s.
and russia are still pretty tense. well the u.s. state department does say that the searches are legal claiming diplomatic immunity is revoked following any closure however the vienna convention does state that immunity remains in place until diplomatic staff leave the country vienna convention on diplomatic relations article twenty two point one the premises of the mission shall be inviolable the agents of the receiving states may not enter them except with the consent of the head of the mission. article thirty nine point two when the functions of a person enjoying privileges and immunities have come to an end such privileges and immunities shall normally cease at the moment when he leaves the country thing international lays it down very clearly the one hundred sixty one fianna convention of to class relations says that any diplomatic and affiliated premises nifong country. and any incursion on that territory is their forces an
attack on the country this is hosting that diplomatic mission so this is breach of all international rules that there is some sort of meaningless parade of power by raising america the big issue here is now that this creates a bad precedent because with this event taking place now in the united states other countries may follow i guess embassies with which they don't have good relations add to this is a collapse of of the international diplomatic system by what the americans and the u.s. government is trying to do. in other news this week the iraqi government declared the former islamic state stronghold city of tel afar liberated however little remains of the city aside from the many baby traps left by terrorists on his motor gaseous has this exclusive report. then when the islamiah by the islamic
state will remain you'll find. that plastered all over the bridges and buildings in tied up frog iraq he sent his haven't yet gotten around to covering them up what with being busy fighting. was. why don't you let them look at them through what i see it's an evening high and plenty of surprises booby traps every red intel a frog they have ten the city into a sap as night and come in here we were moon multiple times not to touch anything no matter how innocent it might seem for we know beyond any of these. could be explosives booby traps baboons behind the time even in the right switches. would be one where officers went into a house and sat on a sofa and exploded along with the house they had booby trapped the sofa another
example they were explosive to light switches when you turn on their lights the house explodes they were bombs into refrigerators and even the door handles when you open the door and explodes. i've just come back from telefon you can didn't lie down on the bed without cyprus check and first drop bombs and wires everywhere we don't touch anything. do all we can to disarm everything but there is only so much we can do some house will have to be destroyed. this bomb was intended for does but the planes and helicopters destroyed the roads and i still couldn't get the car bomb out our engineers found it and dismantled it if it had been used it would have done as great damage they disarm the explosive canisters and detonated them in a controlled explosion.
iraqi troops wouldn't let us into the center of telephone saying would still far too dangerous but having spent some time here in the suburbs we haven't seen a single civilian most of them ran when your opportunity presented itself as the battle began braving the merciless desert in order to get away before of the iraqi military in the u.s. led to release and brits to there to fight for fraud where is the influence will come back the question is how matter of tal afar there be left to come back to more i guys do you have from tyler five iraq meanwhile the u.s. led coalition against islamic state confirmed this week that another sixty one civilian deaths are likely to being caused by air strikes and artillery strikes in iraq and syria in the month of july the coalition completed the assessment of thirty seven reports resulting in sixty one unintentional civilian deaths the
coalition assesses that sit is more likely than not at least six hundred eighty five civilians have been unintentionally killed by coalition strikes since the start of operation inherent resolve. well active military operations either backed or carried out by the us continue in both countries humanitarian organizations have been raising the alarm over the impact on innocent lives but america's defense secretary believes locals understand the reason coalition forces are fighting that we are the good guys munition people on a battlefield know the difference. i saw with my own eyes three houses destroyed in an airstrike isis fighters first went there and run away then the jets bombed where they were seventeen civilians were killed they would go on the roofs of people's houses and start shooting they wouldn't let people live in this later. with all of the civilians still inside.
one of the planes bombed us heavily this happened in downtown misled went around i saw was slaughtering people many were killed and houses were destroyed. but i'm of the coalition shelling targets civilians civilians four story houses full of people all over the neighborhood certainly many have been killed among them are cousin he died in iraq or in an airstrike the u.n. estimates that an average of twenty seven people are being killed in iraq are every day well the situation in the syrian city of rock mentioned there is of particular concern to the u.n. thousands of civilians are still trapped between eyesores cruelty and intense coalition strikes authentically davies has written extensively on the invasion of iraq suggests that the number of civilian deaths there and in neighboring syria a much higher than being reported. what is coming from the coalition are not in
fact estimates of total civilian casualties what they are is a very limited number of individual incidents that have been reported and so therefore the u.s. so authorities have had to address them and conduct some sort of investigation and this is this is very very limited this is the way the u.s. has conducted warfare throughout its so-called war on terror and it's relied on the media to accept these completely absurd. numbers that it puts out as a serious estimate of the numbers of civilians being killed this is you know this is this is absurd that you watch and we can hear a naughty still to come. taking a tumble at the moment we look at why after the break.
true this is what will befall the three of them or can't be good. interested always in the waters of the. question. again hundreds of people took to the streets of paris on wednesday to protest against president new labor law designed to make it easier for companies to hire and fire workers correspond shouted to bin ski sent this report. but the demonstrators have come out again in phones to show how unhappy they are with a manual that once one perform on the working code they have to start a manual my own as being a man who only supports business i once took the rights of look at this is what
people have been saying to us said that keeping small talk is a tax work in the workers were against it because it has no a share now and we can share the work. represents the big boss says he wants a couple of good services social protections and everything achieved by workers turns a group without something. about ideology to be able to sound. in fact he wants to get rid of employee protections all together it's a big attack of the hierarchy deals will now take over those are some of the reasons why the demonstrators hate feel so passionately against these reforms to the working code but not everybody is unhappy with the plans to reform the working take in front of suggest it will mean that in four years we'll have more ability to hire and fire people to negotiate salary in terms of additional hours that
people work and not see why the heads of the employers federation has actually come out not just in support of this reform but is actually emanuel not going to go all in when he introduces that working reform some people have described this as being a bellwether for mcallen's presidency because this is his first major attempt to pass a big piece of legislation in front but recesses have failed you see. it will be able despite this continuing plunging popularity in the public in the polls to. able to push this reform through and to appease the french people charlotte devinsky r.t. paris so charlotte said there is news to reshape the economy the latest polls to show he is losing popularity in fact it's dropped or way down to forty percent within a matter of months american spokes person however claims the president will quote
transform the country while other presidents have fared a lot better at the same point in their careers if we look here because so cosy he had sixty nine percent popularity rating and even francois along there too he was known as mr unpopular had fifty four meanwhile some have accused the new french president of arrogance too and light of some of the things he's been saying on the world stage. we have absolutely different positions to vladimir putin i act france will not pass on anything he is ready to follow us and then we will have some progress on syria. i can't really imagine people following anyone other than himself and i figure they have different views of their political views i can even imagine something or that
would actually work i. think because. the international stage is not really cool you know also i am the one obliged to speak to anyone every ten days. yeah yeah i made the film take i don't think it's a smart move by michael i guess that's like the new thing nowadays to have no experience and think you're the everything you think we're going to sign up. but i know that i think. this week the f.b.i. tonight a freedom of information request to release files relating to hillary clinton's e-mails six times as a rock of public interest for such a disclosure to be made because frances santiago has the story new york attorney
tyco of injury has been waiting for more than a year for the f.b.i. to fulfill his freedom of information requests and reveal the files on hillary clinton's e-mails only to get this response you've not sufficiently demonstrated that the public's interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject. well whatever the f.b.i. thinks the public certainly made its interest in the e-mails a loud and clear these are the three questions that are coming out of that timeline that continue to drive the story i'm sorry when you use a private e-mail on a private server your privacy rights are out the window when you're the secretary of state of the united states of america you don't have privacy anymore she chose to do this because on her and i personally would like to know in a way reminds me of the nixon tapes shouldn't go away on the substance and voters do care about there are enough all that fuss was being made while clinton was still running for the presidency but perhaps now the emails won't be as damaging
especially given that clinton insists there was nothing classified in the first let me say that i am confident that i never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received there was nothing marked classified on my e-mails either send or receive only problem for her is that's not true it seems she never sent or received any classified information over her private e-mail was a true investigation found that there was classified information so it was not true just weeks before the of the ice said there is nothing in clinton's e-mails the public needs to know a federal judge ruled that the state department should do more to investigate its servers for clinton's messages related to the tragic been gazi attack which left several u.s. officials dead that decision was welcomed by judicial watch this major court ruling may finally result in more answers about the benghazi scandal and hillary clinton's involvement in it as we approach the attacks fifth anniversary yet still be
a vi keep silent insisting there is insufficient proof of public interest to more conditions also mentioned by the agency earlier this year they said they are ready to release the records if mrs clinton agrees to at least have the information or passes away the goal francis and jago r.t. . you're watching the weekly here nazi thanks for company tonight i'll be back with more news in thirty five. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turns some countries into pigs these are the countries with we can recall them is that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow bloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy those
who are unemployed see their wages decline off to almost a decade how good are the results she's almost at then usually peaceful by the people gathered in greece to watch the world get people to see what do i do enjoy a choice let me do three they believe will be she still clematis i mean if a legal. challenge was to hold out this economy was always think it she somehow they cannot get it out. while the same measure is still in place to one of the consequences is to weaken blue bird flu disputable who will first. of this is the truth be consider is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision makers. when lawmakers manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the
a bombshell in fact on global politics but they didn't change the balance of power on the ground did that strike represent a pitch for a new american strategy in the region or just a publicity stunt for the new administration well to discuss that i'm not joined by commander keke lippold former commanding officer of the u.s. navy destroyer u.s.s. cole commander it's great to have you on the show thank you very much for your time thank you for having me on today a pleasure to be here now contrary to the expectations the news cycle here in moscow today was rather slow the u.s. secretary of state the rex tillerson already had he's bidding with his russian counterpart sergei lavrov but it's still unclear at this point there he is going to mix with the russian president do you expect anything substantial to come out of his russia visit. i actually do i think the despite the obviously tense introduction that. secretary teller soon and lavrov had where there was no eye
contact made on purpose by secretary lavrov the two of them said down and once the initial posturing for the cameras was all said and done the people that didn't really need to be in the meeting left and then the governments could sit down and start getting down to the real facts the real basis and start discussing what about the chemical attack one of the object is a beach country both in syria and for the region and so i think that there was some very good discussions these had to take place following these strikes to not do them what i think a been more detrimental to both country's interests in the region while commander on the eve of this meeting the russian official said that dire expectational for a fairly modest they just want to simply understand where they trumpet ministration stands on a range of middle eastern issues and i wonder if you think that the trumpet this ration if south knows where it stands i think they do i think in this case when you look at it one of the things that came through very very clear was while the previous administration under president obama put that red line out there and then
never did anything of substance to enforce it through the trumpet administration felt that the use of chemical weapons in clear violation of international law merited a swift and forceful response in my opinion it was forced it was proportional it was appropriate and it's done i think it hopefully send a signal to the assad regime that this will not be tolerated anymore mr lippold the bombing of the syrian arab a says dramatic as it was does not amount to a syria strategy and let's admit the even the previous have been a straight and didn't have a coherent syrian strategy you said yourself it was sending a powerful signal but in military terms it didn't change anything on the ground i wonder how far do you think the trumpet ministration can take these dramatic gestures this reaction there in gestures without paring down with actual military policy decision.
