north korean media claims the country's leader has ordered scientists to increase their efforts to develop nuclear capabilities the move comes as washington claims pyongyang is quote begging cold war. syrian army breaks islamic states blockade of the city of marking a turning point in the war against terror in the country. and that moscow slams washington for the manner in which the closure and searches of russia's evicted promises were conducted and the latest round of the diplomatic spat.
that we can hear on r.t. international has meaning to live from studio all round up of the week's top stories in the latest up to date news of the day welcome to the program the north korean media say the country's leader kim jong un has ordered scientists to redouble their efforts to further develop nuclear capabilities the u.s. and voice to the united nations said pyongyang is begging for war however previous warnings from washington did not seem enough to dissuade the north from conducting its latest nuclear test. 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 to sanctions 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 this comes as washington also says it will deploy troops and weapons to the korean peninsula on top of already existing american air and naval bases there a craft carrier strike group anti missile ships as well as fighter jets and helicopters will be sent to south korea and the accelerated deployment of u.s. onto missile systems even lead to violent mass protests among locals. the the.
meanwhile other regional players like russia and china offered their solution to the standoff over north korea at an emergency u.n. 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 on him and in return american south korea would stop their joint military exercises however the u.s. dismissed the proposal calling it insulting. washington correspondent checking. to gain from an escalating situation on the peninsula the north korean threat is something we hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials with the statement supporting bremer and and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for war. they will be met with fire fury the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now this may not get away with what he's
doing believe and the urgency is still 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 for south korea also increase amounts of highly sophisticated military equipment which trump this kindly allowing both south korea and japan to purchase in the infamously troubled after the fire fighter jets also be added to that package i think of bonus but not free of course but look forget that north korea is by no means the only threat to global security and america for decades iran has fueled the fire of sectarian conflict and terror threatening the region and causing so much by a lintz all nations of kinds most worked together to isolate her and all of those attacks are music to the ears of saudi arabia an american ally and fellow detractor of iran so of course riyadh was all too ready to sign a one hundred ten billion dollar defense deal with trump neighboring qatar also
agreed to buy over twenty one billion dollars worth of american military hardware now trump's approach to conflict is definitely pragmatic make a quick buck if you can right and clearly this guy can sell anything even managed to find a way to spin 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. if you can't solve the problem see if you can at least earn a healthy profit instead 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 is all about business it's all about making money for the arms manufacturers in the plane manufacturers and so forth the people who make missiles the militarization of the policy of using military threats and military force is the
only item in our tool kit has somehow 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 bone that every solution must be solved by a dick top from washington and whatever force and threats are necessary to achieve that end will be employed. stone victory in the war against islamic state offer for the three year long terrorist blockade of the city of so called journalist jana mucha reports from the ground. the syrian army managed to break the siege over the military airports here in datasource state run media reported today that the military operations started by the forces into cemetery in the south west of do resulting links with forces holding the airplanes of the air boats this is of course the same as meeting
between these forces within nine months this comes only a few days after russia backed forces managed to break the siege over the it was the initial areas here in dubai so. some analysts and observers believe that this is would be a main turning point in the war against the goal is to liberate all that is the initial areas that are just a few of those areas then szell areas and districts in the hands of the extremists civilians live is going to be much easier from now on and the. suffering well and the syrian army has made significant progress against eisel in the past few months and it's had fallen silent areas so it gained around eight kilometers a day both civilians and soldiers were celebrating when the advancing army finally joined with the remaining syrian forces inside the city. where i was.
a correspondent much more on how the victory was made possible. but three years and two months besieged needs one of the longest blockades the modern history the city was completely cut off from the outside world for dozens and hundreds of kilometers in any direction that was. in or out of the city it was a dangerous helicopter trip.
thank you thank. them and they need to come see you home so when he's in new. york. the situation seemed hopeless until now lease is the final chapter of the battle of the elam. 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 fold it will be plenty of brutal battles ahead but this is
a turning point by breaking the siege of data the syrian government has won one of its most significant victories during the civil war reportedly isis put up resistance as the syrian military approached the city sent more than fifty suicide car bombs in order to impede the advancing military units russian air force had to carry out hundreds of air strikes on isis targets their intrenchments their bases as well as ball making factories and 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 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 bitter battle to clear the roads and to advance further outside the city never
the less this is a significant victory that is be 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. we also discussed the importance of the same. an army's latest victory with former u.k. ambassador to syria peter ford certainly the breaking of this extremely significant militarily psychologically tremendous boost for the mirage of the government and the government forces who. we must be a bit cautious not clear whether it will take days or or weeks to clear out of the the main fifty four and then on for through
can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in some pocket jihad these still. hold sway so it's going at best going to take a number of months before the syrian government really control over the whole of syria. this week so angry reaction from moscow to the aggressive search of russian diplomatic compounds ordered shot by the u.s. video of men searching on the roof and ripping up the flooring at one of the science was posted on the russian foreign ministry facebook page f.b.i. agents checked basements and attics straws and closets with moscow saying the whole operation made no sense washington's unexpected move certainly sparked outrage here in moscow top russian official 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 has an hour faced a barrage of russian related questions after she referred to the search as simply as a top of the facilities. it's normal that programs are so 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's. let's move on to something else here. or any other thing treat us missions that had been. good it's been searched by the host. governments i think you know what i don't know if you are working for today or what but i remember. in the latest development in their ongoing diplomatic spat the u.s.
ordered russia to close three diplomatic premises in forty eight eilis immediately after the eviction u.s. officers searched the san francisco consulate and trade missions in new york and washington in response to the seizure and searches of property russia president vladimir putin asked the russian foreign ministry to take needed action because because the north american counterparts didn't let russia use its property it's a violation of all property rights i will tell the foreign ministry to go to cool see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the u.s. works however washing says it wants to end the diplomatic crisis two days later after putin's remark on 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. 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 brands that i think russia's been holding out for some time u.s. entering their property was a violation of the vienna conventions. and i don't know where it's going to and i do get the sense from russia that they do not want to escalate. it's been a rough week. campaign trail more to the short break. please.
little. global hawk. dropping bombs brings peace talks the battles they don't believe the new socks for the tell you that will be gossip and probably by files a little before they. tell me you are not cool enough to buy their products please. the hawks we. will watch for. welcome back to the weekly here on r.t. international 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. called was jeered and booed by demonstrators during a rally on wednesday while the day before a protester threw tomatoes that are doing a similar affront the chancellor has criticised those calls and disruption but this week it wasn't just hecklers who got in the way of merkel speeches. she was also recently interrupted by her main rival from the social democratic party while addressing parliament for taking credit for their work but she didn't hesitate to remind those president who's really the boss. that's with you but i think sadly when. the ceilings. as.
if it might be a group you know so i doubt. if . that's because i think you're only. just two weeks before the country goes to the polls to elect the country's parliament voting intentions shows christian democrats way ahead of a social democrat rivals the left wing party is in third place with the free democrats behind them as is alternative for germany a euro skeptic party that's expected to make its first gains in parliament peter takes a closer look at who will be the real contenders in this election with most pundits already calling this german election a win for. sure there isn't a great deal of intrigue there what's more exciting though has been the battle for
the place and who will perhaps be called the kingmaker in the next coalition government. alex of those are the key issues are as long as you've got. to close to the amount of state. to. bring some sky. and controversy to the relatively calm seas of the german political scene is alternative for germany it looks like they will enter parliament for the first time following this election and they run on a hardline message against refugee policy even drafted in one of the ad agencies
that helped promote donald trump in his campaign. put alternative for germany it's not going to be halted any coalition with and likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel of the free democratic party a classically liberal pro business they film charismatic and photogenic leader has appeared front and center however he does appear to have lifted sort of his migration policy right out of the alternative think jodi playbook if peace prevails refugees must return prisoners such human rights to choose a new place in the world i'm not being harsh this is realism speaking aping the a.f. there may prove to be a wise move as he looks to shore up his own party's position basically this is just
a 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 kind 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 they if the from the right wing side the woman who has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time out at the lagging way behind in the polls 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 i'm going to look cool. not be good a chancellor of germany however the most realistic. that the free democrats will not only return to the fold the stock following september the twenty olds post but they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all of us.
