the week's top stories on the. just in time for the. north korean media says the country's leader has ordered to redouble their efforts to develop nuclear capabilities. to the united nations said pyongyang is quote begging for war however previous warnings from washington to. the north from conducting its latest nuclear. enough is enough i think enough is enough the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now time is short action is required our country's patience is not unlimited the policy of strategic patience is over or is never something the united states wants the united states does not seek conflict only the strongest sanctions will enable us to resolve this problem through
diplomacy all of our counterparts need to impose dissensions we will defend our allies and our territory the united states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies washington also says it will deploy troops and weapons for the korean peninsula on top of already existing american air naval bases their aircraft carrier strike group and he missed all ships fighter jets and helicopters would all be sent to south korea and the accelerated deployment of the u.s. anti missile system third even lead to violent mass protests among locals. that was the was of i was. was over the
of the of of the meanwhile of a regional players like russia and china offered best solution to the standoff over north korea this an emergency un security council meeting on monday moscow and beijing proposed what's being called a double freeze initiative under the plan north korea would stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests and in return america and south korea would stop with their joint military exercises in the region however the us dismissed the entire proposal calling it quote insulting what our washington correspondent joe who stands to gain from an escalating situation on the korean peninsula the north korean threat is something we hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials with the statements pouring brimmer and grammar and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for wars they will be met with fire and fury the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now this man will not get away
with what he's doing really and the urgency is so strong the u.s. is rolling out a range of american made weapons to save the day on offer for remaining rocket launchers for the u.s. missile defense system korea also increase amounts of highly sophisticated military equipment which trump is kindly allowing both south korea and japan to purchase and the infamous the troubled after thirty five fighter jets also be added to that package i think it funny but not free of course but look forget that north korea is by no means the only threat to global security and american for decades iran has fueled the fires of sectarian. threatening the region and causing so much by a lintz all nations of its must work together to isolate her and all of those attacks are music to the ears of saudi arabia an american ally and fellow detractors of iran so of course riyadh was all too ready to sign
a one hundred ten billion dollar defense deal with from neighboring qatar also agreed to buy over twenty one billion dollars worth of american military hardware now trying to approach the conflict is definitely pragmatic make a quick buck if you can right and clearly this guy can't sell anything even managed to find a way to been continuing america's sixteen year long war in afghanistan as the prime minister of afghanistan has promised we are going to participate in economic development to help defray the cost of this war to us hey if you can't solve the problem see if you can at least turn a healthy profit instead of i'm a businessman that's what i'm supposed to do that's what i'm supposed to do i think a lot of people project on the behavior of the united states maybe of other countries that it's all about business it's all about making money for the arms manufacturers and the plane manufacturers and so forth the people who make missiles the militarization of the policy of the using military threats and military force
is the only item in our tool kit his son how become so ingrained in their mentality they really don't consider other alternatives you have people who believe that the united states is and must be the global head of the un that every solution must be solved by a detached from washington and whatever force and threats are necessary to achieve that end will be employed by. the syrian army has secured a milestone victory in the war against islam the state broke the three year long terror blockade of the city of dead as all a local journalist reports from the. the syrian army managed to break the siege over the military airports here in dade resorts state run media reported today that the military operations started by the forces into cemetery in the south west of due resulting links with forces holding
the airplanes of the airports this is of course the fairest meeting between these forces within nine months this comes only a few days off toward russian backed forces managed to break the siege over the it was the initial areas here in the result. some analysts and observers believe that this is would be an main turning point in the war against the goal is to liberate all that is the initial areas that are just a few it is then szell areas and districts in the hands of extremists civilians live is going to be much easier from now on and their suffering will and the syrian army has made significant progress against i saw in the past few months and it's advance on dead as or again the route eighty kilometers per day both civilians and soldiers were celebrating when the advancing army finally joined with the remaining syrian forces who had the being trapped inside that city. how
are you are god. i am yes yes yes yes. yes of. course well that my god has more details now on how the victory was made possible. but three years and two months isis besieged needs one of the longest blockades in modern history a city was completely cut off from the outside world dozens and hundreds of kilometers in any direction there was. out of the city it was
a dangerous helicopter trip. thank you. thank. god or have. the situation seemed hopeless until now this is the final chapter of the battle of the elements of the syrian military have broken the siege they have reached a defended taking thousands of square kilometers from isis in brutal battles few could have predicted that the syrian military would reach their resort in such a short time but evidence again that isis in syria is crumbling while isis is
on the retreat they won't fold it will be plenty of brutal battles ahead but this is a turning point by breaking the siege of data stored in the syrian government has won one of its most significant victories during the civil war reportedly isis put up stiff resistance as the syrian military approached the city they sent more than fifty suicide car bombs in order to impede the advancing military units the russian air force had to carry out hundreds of air strikes on isis targets there and tried. bases as well as bomb making factories weapons factories more than that the russian navy launched a salvo of cruise missiles that isis targets and there is order in order to open up this color to into the city the siege has been broken but it hasn't yet been lifted
isis still surrounds datasource they also hold a number of districts inside the city and it will take a big battle to clear the roads and to advance further outside the city nevertheless this is a significant victory that is being celebrated in datasource both by the defendants and the civilians who have suffered so much during the siege it will take more than one two to describe what they have been through and syria is celebrating with them their allies as well this is a tremendous victory against isis. and we discussed the importance of syria the syrian army's late is victory with a former u.k. ambassador to syria peter ford. currently the breaking of the extremely fignon. militarily and. remember the booth for the morale of the government and the government for through. we must be
a bit cautious not clear whether it will be a thaw or or weeks to clear i fouth out of the the the main. board and then the fourth who can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in pocket jihad these will. hold sway so it going at best going to take a number of months before the therion government real control over the whole of syria. this week saw angry reaction from moscow to the aggressive search of russian diplomatic compounds ordered shot by the united states video of men for example the searching of the rooftops and ripping up the flooring at one of the sites was posted on the facebook page of a russia's foreign ministry shortly after that of course with that was shortly
after the personnel had left the building now f.b.i. agents checking basements attics draws and closets with moscow saying the whole operation made no sense well at washington's an unexpected move certainly sparked some outrage here in moscow a top russian officials described it as a seizure of property and characterized it as a gross violation of international law that openly demonstrated hostility towards russia and would inevitably lead to a degradation of u.s. russia relations meanwhile the u.s. state department spokesperson had a newer face up. of russia related questions after she referred to the search as simply as a tour of the facilities. that in programs are what's your name let's move on move on to something else if you still consider that sovereign russian property or were those property searched because there was a concern that they were being used for intelligence purposes which would be like
a different issue i'm just not going to get into that let it lead in this i'm so let's move on to something else here in russia or any other country where u.s. missions that have been deleted have been searched by the host. governments you know what i don't know if you are working for r.t. today or what but i think. in the latest development in their ongoing diplomatic spat the u.s. ordered russia to close three diplomatic premises in forty eight hours immediately after the eviction u.s. offices of the san francisco consulate and trade missions in both new york and washington in response to a seizure and so it was a property of russian president vladimir putin the russian foreign ministry to take legal action. because the north american counterparts didn't let russia use its property it's a violation of our property rights and i will tell the foreign ministry to go to cool see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the u.s. works. oh washington says it wants to end the diplomatic crisis two days off to
taking legal action the u.s. state department had this to say. we would like that relationship to improve we don't want to continue this kind of diplomatic tit for tat people in the united states need to get over this russia hysteria and that's what it is that's being pinned. by the media here and americans need to call for more friendly and constructive relations with russia it's my firm opinion that russia all along has wanted friendly relations has wanted the u.s. as a partner and there's no reason that we should reject that all of branch that i think russia has been holding out for us entering that property was a violation of the vienna conventions. and i don't know where it's going to end i do get the sense from russia that they do not want to escalate it's not quarter past the hour here in the russian capital your weekly continues in
a moment. in case you're new to the game this is how it works in the economy is built around core. perforations washington washington media the media. business to run this country business because. it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. what politicians do something that. they put themselves on the lawn. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or something i
want to be. that's it right to be for us that's what before us three in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of our. question. it's good to have you with us today here are not the german chancellor angela merkel's been facing a rough week both in and out of parliament with just two weeks to go before the federal election she's been out on the campaign trail trying to drum up support with what appears to be mixed success was of of. merkel was jeered and booed by some demonstrators during a rally on wednesday while the day before a protester threw tomatoes at her during a similar event the chancellor has criticized those causing destruction but this
week it wasn't just got in the way of merkel's speeches she was also recently interrupted by her main rival from the social democrats party while addressing parliament taking credit for their work she didn't hesitate to remind those president who is really the boss. that's the big i think sad when you've been in the few months you once. did the thing that has. i. think a really you know. that when you inspect it when he's in parliament if east story said that he was here in the beach
that was just two weeks before the country goes to the polls to elect the country's parliament voting intentions show merkel's ruling christian democrats way ahead of her social democrat rivals of the left wing party d. link is in third place with the free democrats behind the house's alternative for germany a euro skeptic party that's expected to make its first gains in parliament. peter all of are now taking a closer look at who will be the real contenders in this election. with most pundits already calling this german election a win for. schultz there isn't a great deal of intrigue there what's more exciting though has been the battle for third place and who will perhaps become the kingmaker in the next coalition government. documents or p.s.s. iraq's longest of guns. were to. come out of shape.
and. to. bring some scandal and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the political scene it's all to germany it looks like they will enter a pall of it for the first time following this election and they run on a message against. policy even drafted in one of the out agencies that helped promote trump in his campaign. good alternative for germany is not going to be called to any coalition with.
likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic policy of the liberal pro-business they film charisma and photogenic media has appeared front and center however he does appear to have lifted so of his migration policy right out of the alternative think jodi playbook if peace prevails refugees must be. such human right for choosing your place in the womb. i'm not being harsh this is really speaking the a.f. did they prove to be a wise move as he looks to shore up his own party's position basically this is just political maneuver to get more voters from this from this side of the spectrum f.t.p.'s at the moment constantly collecting in all kinds of fields voters for example with all these digital subjects and now with this new statement about refugees they try to pick of course also people from the if the from the right wing
side on the move to has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time out at the lagging way behind in the polls there's even the possibility that we could see you know the grand coalition with the social democrats and that's when it comes to coalition possibilities there are even some that would see him do a little cool not to be the next chancellor of germany however the most realistic options are that the free democrats will not only return to the fold to start calling september the twenty olds vote but that they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all of the people and. it is a big occasion for tank crews in russia who are celebrating their professional day and to mark the event. trying to find out what it's like to be in the driving seat of one of the russian army's staple battle tanks.
there's a battle ready frank white on the training range but before i get close to it i have to test the dodgy terrain myself. you know. we don't like that but i call. one of my goals is a test drive to see if a person with a regular license like myself can get this t. a to go in. the driver's seat is right here. here we go. in this dirt everywhere.
well obviously i didn't do. that well but at least i didn't get off track and i'll tell you what these guys got a really tough job aside from firing the cannon and told me everyone at the base has the skills to easily drive the eighty three times faster than me but the ride would seem much smoother and we agreed to this so another test well i spill any water from this cup and pray is driving that and if he goes full throttle. i'm built by him. so far so good. whoa whoa.
i managed to keep the car almost full good job and drink i'm going to tell him about a. little while idea that if i did a slow me up a five speed enjoyed it but i leave. moscow region. interested in. thanks for joining us for their weekly here on aussie international we're back in about half an hour's time. as long as he runs. the intel into the community to say to run this is not acceptable you should still fine on this into perspective basis ballots hamas saw those things will be doing the place but this is something that i believe should
see the. we draw. it's not just you know a small easily pulled low. level blog selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles that don't. produce talks credits tell you that every gossip and tabloid bias file for the most important news. off the bat has been telling me you are not cool enough and that's to buy their product. all the hawks that we along with all the walking. they're bred for a single purpose. they have
a superman. they start training very young. eight months of intensive schooling. their rats. and they save lives. dubrovnik deceptively peaceful. venice it's peaceful hours are numbered. bossa luna is also steeling itself in the early morning. up three unique cities in europe with one problem the skidding woods all the time.
every now but yes you know what that that they built. that felt by so many things that people even yeah. i did a city didn't like the quotes but coldplay instance can do with colds of tourists every day the whole year round the peak season in some cities in europe results in the state of emergency. at all the chicken is the best they became get out. of the sheer. place a couple studies on the. local residents suffer from the mass of this it is if you push out robbed of their own city how to read by noise and simply swamped by phone to many visitors. tourism is going beyond all bell.
