headlines off the international the u.n. security council adopts new sanctions against north korea after the resolution was changed from a much tougher. with controlling only fifteen percent of syria the races to retake the oil fields from the terrorists as russia or assisted u.s. backed forces both close in. on their off the islamic state fighters could now easily get into europe with german authorities believing the group to go to its hands on the thousands of stolen blank syrian.
news headlines live from moscow from everybody here at r.t. international a very warm welcome to you the u.n. security council has adopted new sanctions against north korea the latest resolution prohibits the poet yourself textiles from the country for example it also restricts the hiring of north koreans as foreign workers plus the document puts a cap on pyongyang's oil imports but this is a huge step back from what was originally proposed by the united states in new york correspondent explains. this is a very different resolution than the draft that was circulated by the united states
the original draft of the resolution that the u.s. circulated have actually called for a full oil and natural gas embargo against the d.p. r. k. forbidding north korea from importing any oil or natural gas well the resolution that just passed is far different simply caps the amount of oil and natural gas that north korea can import now the original draft that was being circulated furthermore called for a freezing of the assets of kim jong il and an a travel ban on north korea's leader forbidding him from leaving north korea that was not included in the resolution that just passed now immediately after it was unanimously passed by the fifteen members of the u.n. security council quite a change in tone from u.s. leaders regarding north korea we heard nikki haley speaking before the u.n. security council today in kind of calm tone saying that the north koreans have not passed a point of no return that there are peaceful and diplomatic solutions to the crisis but we've heard some very different words from nikki haley herself as whether as well as other u.s. officials in relation to north korea they will be met with fire.
stands guard. and the sword stands ready massive military response of the regime both objective and overwhelming nuclear threats show that he is begging for war. we are not looking for a war the north korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return if it agrees to stop its nuclear program it can reclaim its future if it proves it can live in peace the world will live in peace with it we also heard from the representative of the russian federation now the ambassador for the russian federation he talked about how russia's opinion and russia's perspective has been and russia maintains that it is not acceptable for north korea to have nuclear weapons furthermore he went on to emphasize the double freeze proposal put forward
by russia and china calling for a freeze in provocative military drills in the south and in exchange for a freeze on nuclear proliferation and provocative activities from the north this is the ambassador of the russian federation speaking before the u.n. security council group it's a big mistake to underestimate this russian chinese initiative it remains on the table at the security council and we will insist on it being considered now the resolution that was just passed emphasized the call for the six party talks to resume from day one russia and china have called for negotiations and a diplomatic solution to the crisis and an easing of tensions on the korean peninsula and it seems that that view put forward by russia and china from the beginning of this crisis has prevailed with the resolution being passed by the fifteen member body the u.n. security council the experts we spoke to think that a diplomatic solution to the korean crisis is still possible despite the fact that
the u.s. is pushing tough measures against pyongyang. i think that they wanted some action to be taken and they knew that china and i believe us a russia would not go along with what the draft was there it was really recipe for extinction for north korea korea has also said that if there's a peace treaty signed between then them and the united states and there's a halt to those maneuvers that they would suspend nuclear and missile tests by the united states has brush this off as absolutely unthinkable and so i think that's the real reason that we have an ongoing crisis so you know what you have here is basically nikki haley having initially distributed the most extreme abstentions. perhaps even historically this latest round of sanctions which was supposed to be extremely hard hitting but instead the last did the influence of
both russia and china and pushing for diplomacy actually signals a possibility and even though things have gotten about as grim as they possibly could with regard to u.s. policy toward north korea there is a rational pathway at hand. following the adoption of the resolution russia and china reiterated their call for a double freeze plan on north korea mentioned just a bit by our correspondent on that the plan pyongyang would stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in return america and south korea would stop their joint military exercises ahead of the vote though the north korean leader warned that washington would pay a price if it's tough a draft resolution was passed the details now without a correspondent an up around. considering this sanctions resolution passed by the u.n. security council is the toughest to date concerning north korea's ballistic missile
and a nuclear weapons program and is furious before the vote even took place the government issued a very harsh statement warning they will act tough on the quote u.s. gangsters and promised pain and suffering. the feelings coming measures to be taken by the d.p. ok will cause the u.s. the greatest free it's has through its entire history now to get some perspective on the government in pyongyang i spoke with a member of the national assembly here in seoul that they saw libya. euro. collapse they think they could because they don't have any nuclear weapons if they have nuclear weapons united states war has a. very special you're wrong. because they have nuclear weapons do you think.
has to be. thinking despite much talk out of seoul underscoring their commitment to a diplomatic solution this week it was announced by opposition lawmakers they will include requests for u.s. tactical nukes in their twenty eight thousand budget proposal i asked mr ha if he supported this action and how it would make koreans say for nuclear weapons. they want to have clear territory one obstacle is chinese to supreme trying. even. china is putting some kind of sanctions on south korea. and i'm not so by that this week a delegation of opposition lawmakers from seoul will head to washington where they will likely make. for a tactical nuclear weapon china is on the record. would be a red line. against the presence of nuclear weapons on the korean peninsula so if
such an action is to be carried out by the trump administration it would surely only inflame tensions further in so on your part. the russian military says that only fifteen percent of syrian remains to be liberated from islamic state and with russian backed syrian government forces breaking the. u.s. backed militias appear to be heading to the same place. direction. now assessing what's at stake is the two forces in. what has the. american led coalition in northern syria been up to lately rocko short thing but there's more here's this weekend statement by the guys in charge of an hard to resolve syrian coalition commences offensive tools don't resume. their resort
it's only the biggest city in the country's east which just had its blockade broken i you are the. government troops are already inside doing the d. isolating so why would the coalition get involved. it was a mistake quick correction the coalition's on the way to boot islamic state out of the hub or river valley not quite their ads or but just to the north of the city all sort it keep reading the prestigious mistakenly released an unapproved drove regarding the fight in the river valley the draft indicated that. a motion to resume this is not the case i thought first of all they were meant to be anti eisel forces we have very little to do with syria other than killing isis many times in the studio of explain the great strategic importance of controlling their resort and the state islamic state will find itself and if they lose it
a different perspective there's still plenty of oil around this area once. you get it but even before islamic state gets fully erased from the map of syria government troops may well come across coalition forces or vice versa trust me this potential proxy conflict would be formidable to say the least earlier this year the pro-government forces were hit by u.s. airstrike at least five times in the deserts of southeast syria just because they happened to turn up in the wrong place at the wrong time the united states conducted strikes against two technical vehicles later this morning at. for that first incident the united states also shot down a suspected program drone speaking of sudden clashes breaking out as various and forces come together just recently ended north american troops along with kurdish units came under fire by the turkish backed rebels the ones that the kurds well
when it comes to the east watch this space as it gets a bit crowded in here there is. a huge trove of blank syrian passports has been stolen from the government germany as well thora to say that over eleven thousand of them might have folded into the hands of islamic state adding that fake passports give terrorists much easier access to europe details now with our correspondent peter odom. eleven thousand blank syrian passports could be in the hands of isis starts according to an investigation that was carried out by the build on sunday newspaper citing documents from the german police and from the german interior ministry wants to build in with a person's details these passports codes allow terrorists to into europe undetected using a valid passport disguising themselves as refugees developments in connection with the refugee situation has shown that terrorist organizations
a using the opportunity to smuggle potential attackers all supporters into europe in germany undetected fake or altered passports a mostly used for illegal entry without further motives like carrying out a terrorist attack this is more news that should to worry germans after it emerged earlier this month that a group of sixty former members of a group linked to al qaeda may have traveled disguising themselves as refugees another group are accused of war crimes and carrying out numerous massacres we've also seen an uptick in the number of those accused of having being fighters with terror organizations facing trial here in germany one of those is the rebel commander able to him if he's accused of having tortured people in syria he entered the country as a refugee at the end of this month prosecutors from stuttgart will bring charges of murder and belonging to a terrorist organization against four syria nationals accused of being members of
joe but. we contacted the german authorities and asked them what they have to say about the potential risks of terrorists arriving here in germany using refugees as cover is long be known but so-called blank post balls was stolen from the syrian regime these documents are listed on the interpol last documents they to base so that the possibles can be matched with passports presented on iraq. not quite blonde say attitude to blank passports potentially being in the hands of isis isn't going down well with some the problem itself is far bigger than we actually realize and that the mainstream media is able to accept roll across them bring to the attention of you know the citizens of the world the countries that have ill thought out the these policies on immigration and dislike border controls that we've seen in european countries i think the results of that is really one survival i don't think they have any idea of the sheer magnitude of the straits and this problem
a lot more needs to be done and if it isn't done we're going to see significant terrorist incidents the sheer number of terrorist incidents we witnessed over the last three years that is linked to isis in european countries shows that even with a small number of terrorists that are off the radar the governments don't have the ability to cope so if we're looking at such a high number you know in the thousands then i think they're definitely going to be struggling to it to cope and woefully incapable of doing such german authorities uncovered a sin a half thousand cases of people trying to enter the country using false documents and twenty sixteen and the news that isis may have access to over eleven thousand blank syrian passports means that migration authorities are going to have to be on watch to make sure the documents handed over at the border much the real identity of those doing the handing over peter all over. and while i saw fighters are trying
to make their way into europe thousands have previously gone to fight for the terror group in syria from abroad the lion's share of foreign ice all recruits came from tunisia russia france germany and the u.k. are also among the countries where a significant number of citizens left to fight i saw. so with suffering a series of significant defeats in iraq and syria in a moment we look at what will happen to the. terrorists story in the mix of your headlines just a thought. joining
fighters in syria and iraq for the past few years many of those who went to fight brought their families with them but with the terror group suffering a string of major defeats the wives and children of a large number of killed five of wound up in refugee camps with uncertain future. he was the first of all to some of the widows of foreign extremists in one iraqi town where hundreds of families off. the location and identities will not be disclosed safety. it's a shame that. there is such a dumb as if it is. people like. you have to do. something please that many of the guns used to teach us that.
they're no no. no no. the legal fate of the wives of his is not clear yet meanwhile in europe last year around six hundred people were put on trial for terrorism with more than three hundred fifty prosecuted for ties to god ism so should the wives of i so fight is being treated in the same way as other islamist extremists we discuss the issue with political commentators andre walker and. well i think the most important thing we have to do is avoid these people coming back to our countries these people have joined a terrorist organization they wish to join a state that isn't the united kingdom isn't america isn't russia isn't even chechnya these are people who are dangerous extremist terrorists and what i hope will happen and i sincerely think that all of our country should support syria and iraq ensuring these people are prosecuted or brought to justice what we're talking
about wives and children of isis fighters who have gone out to syria to iraq to kurdistan and have been found themselves inadvertently getting in broiled as part of as much a victim as anyone else has been in power these atrocities certainly the wives and children innocent victims in this play these are families children mothers who are claiming that we came here innocently we came here we followed the husbands they have been killed in combat and we are left stranded here with nowhere to go and they are pose no risk to the state it let's be clear what the argument that no one saw is making is that you are an adult woman have chosen to join a terrorist organization and just because you're married you should have no responsibility for that whatsoever i want mr savage journey to terrorist organization so i want to not have you make your own please let me say they signed on for lying beside me so let's be clear on my position and let's be clear what i look if you actually look a little later a name for yourself as
a showing for the majority of iraq just take the air piece out and keep talking the position of the majority of british people in my view is that they do not want terrorists back in the united kingdom they do not want the wives of terrorists back in the united kingdom but they may want the children who are entirely innocent to return to the united kingdom and with that in mind i put my ear piece back in these women many of them will be innocent people the children the innocent people they didn't sign up to a terrorist organization it's not like joy. club where you sign up to get a membership form they followed their husbands into a war zone people who have not committed any wrongdoing who are no risk to the state the answer is to integrate them we have the national security apparatus in place to be able to tackle these issues right now we have got very successful models around britain we've got very successful models around europe it works if it's done carefully but the answer is not just to exclude everybody all we do is create more problems for the future so the idea is we need to bring these people back and show them some love show them some tolerance absolute they'll be no doubt
interrogated by the intelligence services find out what they know but the idea is not imprison them not leave them stateless and not leave them stranded we bring them home. a new soyuz spacecraft mission is ready to make the six hour flight to the international space station a joint media conference one cosmonaut and two nasa ashton also share their expectations over the upcoming expedition and artie's roman reports from the baikonur cosmodrome in kazakhstan. they saw you spacecraft has rolled into the launch site to take another space trio on their journey to the stars the final tests have now been passed and the crew is all set to leave earth for over one hundred sixty days two flights engineers from nasa and their russian mission commander have been training together since july so by now they must know each other's strengths and weaknesses pretty well if you went on a road trip together somewhere here on earth who to driving would be sitting the
route. loosely. in the back seat yes i don't know who will be driving but one thing i know for sure is that i will be in the back of the car dancin tonight and use it. on a city did you get to drive to someone to use so i'm driving the car. you know i'm like his tootsie macy's will be more commanding highs first voyage and his face his wife says she will be keeping him up to speed with things back on earth it's reassuring i think to know about what's going on here. you know at home so we'll just talk about the kids at college maybe our cats. and of course he'll share his experiences with me and the it up with what he's doing is i can or is a small town built specifically for the space program it's still closed off so serious but westerners are now welcome here so with this iraq it's blast off into
space or through the small country. you know no possibility to see this group and. she's been here nine times but every time is different it's it's very interesting you can get much closer to things actually and of course the history and you know this is the place where the first man in space launch from and i think it's a wonderful place it's a place who can mix with people that are interested in space travel. it's also baikonur they've made it pretty easy for us to get close to the rocket and get a good view of it it's exalted for some people but for me i've been studying so be it space program all of my professional life so i've always been excited last year that was my first time here after years of studying it so i'm excited to see it first and from all the descriptions i've read over the years ramana calls for of artsy baikonur cosmodrome in kazakhstan it's been

greetings and salutations. this week marks the sixteenth anniversary of the attacks on september the eleventh two thousand and one a date that will be etched in the living history of the united states forever a day that will long be remembered for both its tragedy and its controversy because for all of the heroism courage and acts of compassion that they inspire there was another form of inspiration awakening inside those whose hearts beat fear and whose only comfort is power and they would set in motion a series of decisions manipulations and votes that would forever alter if not outright destroy the very life blood of the united states of america the authority
of our constitution and bill of rights this was done all in the name of power and fear one of the made weapons in this endeavor was the passing of the uniting and strengthening america by providing appropriate tools required to intercept and obstruct terrorism act of two thousand and one or as it's more commonly called the patriot act introduced by republican representative jim sensenbrenner just over a month after the attacks the three hundred forty two page bill was quickly passed through the house and senate would very little objection or dissent let's be honest most congressmen and women probably never even read the thing because they barely read bills in the first place the patriot act went on to be used to shred the rights of u.s. citizens in ways that made even senate intelligence committee members senator ron wyden exclaim when the american people find out how their government has secretly in turkey.
