nationwide protests in france turn violent as people throw projectiles and flares to countermand khan's new labor law that would come into effect in a week. with islamic states territory in syria crumbling the race is on to retake oil fields from the terrorists with russian assisted and u.s. backed forces both closing in. and the u.n. security council adopts new sanctions against north korea after the resolution was watered down from a stronger u.s. draft.
watching altie international live from moscow studio with me to do it today welcome to the program protests have turned violent in paris where people have taken to the streets to vent their anger at the president's labor reforms which come into effect in a week four thousand separate strikes and almost two hundred rallies major cities across the country from north to kneel and must say projectiles and flares have been thrown by the crowds.
he's been following one of the crowds in paris. quite. all the way. yeah. yeah they are and if you can describe protests the way that hollywood movies are rated well it started off as a bit of a disney film of a protest it was all very and then it turned into a bit of an eighty project things got pretty hairy and violent some police to the teeth of responding in case things get out of hand and now it's kind of turned back into a. scene for the moment the thousands of people that have come out to protest against . proposed reforms the labor laws here they piled on to this in paris they are
making their feelings known they are against. proposed changes to liberalize and shake up the jobs market head to make it easier to hire and fire personnel he thinks it's going to. unemployment rate bring it down here in france and he had to say about the people who oppose his proposed changes to the law take a listen. it made it clear he's going to take a look at little booth in the. book. and these protesters have really actually rather that phrase but he's used the lazy cynics the extremists that he's that that phrase that emanuel might from use is
really galvanized people we've seen a lot of badness saying i am one of the flock has and it has of the world unite has hit the streets so it may have poured oil on the fire and got more people to come out and demonstrate against the floor and these protests today are seen as a bit of a litmus test as well for emanuel not going because earlier on his team in the summer try to divide and conquer a lot of the trade unions they're not all taking call they often simply suffering's to some of the labor collectives and some of them haven't turned up yet but there are a lot of people here who say they are very unhappy with these proposed bills take a listen to what some of the people i spoke to had to say a little bit earlier on. this floor is anti social because it's one of. the budget wall this law doesn't provide workers with rights to work doesn't give privileges in both the public and the private sectors we defend the interests of workers what conditions retirement should. the draft or thanks
eighteen million workers the majority of french workers will significantly limit their rights to make it easier to find people when it's not justified. it's about to lower which is harmful for us this would leave us without any more guarantees of avoided if we're all adults we were present the people and the movement were protesting a number of laws in the name of the movement so we want to do it in a festive manner. and a lot of people are saying that this is a law that protects the employers. raul the. grandson the protests are taking place all across the country of course initiatives like this to change the labor laws here that french people see they cherish them there in these laws are enshrined in their labor. initiatives to change them in the last through there were violent protests under francois hollande earlier this year so really determined to push
this change to the law through that could be why he's jetted off to the caribbean to deal with the fallout. in the french dependencies that are all been set at home and face these demonstrations but it's really being billed today as a showdown between a pro-business president who says he has a strong mandate to implement these changes and the trade union movement and we see this kind of as a last resort to. the president. yeah really interesting developments there in paris. reporting from paris. france as seen violent. in the past let's take a quick look back. with
the syrian army breaking the siege of barriers or islamic states hold over the country is rapidly collapsing only fifteen percent of syria remains under the terror group's control and that no longer includes any major cities that's according to russia's defense ministry it also says this week alone four hundred fifty terrorists have been killed and a large amount of key eisel infrastructure including ammunition depots destroyed meanwhile ten tons of humanitarian aid have been delivered to the previously besieged a resort and it seems that u.s. backed kurdish militias are also heading there but from another direction. looks at
what's at stake as the two anti terror forces close in on each other. 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 moment 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 buress or and the state islamic state will find itself in if they lose it a different perspective there's still plenty of oil around this area once. you get it but even before this time and 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. air strike at least five times and 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 after the. first incident the united states also shot down a suspected program drone speaking of sudden clashes breaking out as various and to arsal forces come together just recently and 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. and huge trove of blank syrian passports has been stolen from the country's government jemmy's authorities say that over and eleven thousand of them might have fallen into the hands of islamic state adding that fake passports give the terrorists easy access to europe peter picks up the story. eleven thousand blank syrian passports could be in the hands of isis stops 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 they using the opportunity to smuggle potential attackers all supporters into europe and germany undetected fake or altered passports are mostly used for illegal entry without further motives like carrying out a terrorist attack this is more news that should to worry germans after demerged earlier this month that a group of sixty four 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 lost documents database so that the passports can be matched with passports presented on a right. not quite as a attitude to blank passports potentially being in the hands of isis isn't going down well with so the problem itself is far bigger than we actually realize and
that the mainstream media is able to accept real cost and bring to the attention of the citizens of the world the sheer number of terrorist incidents we missed over the last three years the link to isis in european countries shows us 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 this thousands and i think that definitely going to be struggling to it's a cope and woefully incapable of doing so german authorities uncovered eight and 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. while i still 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 eisel reprise came from chin this year russia france germany and the u.k. also among the countries where a significant number of citizens left to fight for i saw many of those who went to syria and iraq to fight islamic state brought their families along with them but the terror group suffering a string of major defeats the wives and children of a large number of killed fighters have ended up in refugee camps with uncertain futures r.t. was first to talk to some of the waiters the foreign extremists in an iraqi camp where hundreds of families are stranded that location and identities will not be disclosed for their safety. actually you know it's not important for us to get visual if.
you're going to shorten the duration. gap. here someone cuts off the. illegal fate of the wise advice will find this 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 jihadism should the wives of isis fighters be treated in the same way as other islamist extremists while we discuss the issue with political commentators andre walker m o on. 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 is 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 embroiled as part of as much a victim as anyone else has been in power these atrocities let's be clear what the argument that no one saw is making is that you are an adult war have chosen to join a terrorist organization just because you're married you should have no responsibility for that whatsoever i want mr savage journey to terrorist organizations but 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 at you're surely you don't make your 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 there may want the children who are entirely innocent to return to the united kingdom and with that in mind i'll put my earpiece 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 joining a 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. the u.n. security council agrees new sanctions against north korea more on that story after this break. it's. called the feeling of. every the world should experience to be educated on the old the old. the old according to just.
lock up. come along for the ride. of. what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express an injury. or something want to be rich. that you'd like to be close this is what we look for three of the more people. interested always in the waters of. the city. welcome back to the north korea has accused the u.s. of using the u.n. security council as an instrument to isolate. as often these sanctions were imposed
against the country the resolution adopted in the security council was drawn up by washington the latest sanctions imposed by the u.n. security council are a result of the he missed us attempts to isolate and suffocate our country they are a blatant violation of our sovereignty that's why we totally reject and condemn. the sanctions north korea's anger comes despite the document being significantly watered down from last week's original proposal washington had proposed a total oil and natural gas embargo on exports to the hermit states but the final resolution only caps the amount of gas and oil pyongyang can import the original draft also called for sanctions against the north korean leader himself including a travel ban and freeze of kim jong un's assets however that point was deleted completely and it's not just the resolution that's changed but also washington's tone. they will be met with fire fury the shield
stands guard. and the sword stands ready massive military response. 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 meanwhile russia and china have been calling on the security council members to adopt a so-called double freeze plan under the scheme pyongyang would stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests and in return america and south korea would halt their military exercises ahead of last night's sanctions vote the north korean leader warned that washington would pay the price if the resolution was passed anna power
until reports from seoul. 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 recalls the u.s. the greeks used so free it says 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. because they have nuclear weapons they 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 hall if he supported this action and how it would make koreans safer because the weapons they want to. hear what i have to say sounds clear the territory one obstacle is trying his disapproval trying. china is putting some kind of sanctions and south korea. on a not so by this week a delegation of opposition lawmakers from seoul will head to washington where they
will likely be made. this request for tactical nuclear weapons china is on the record saying such an act would be a red line as there stonily 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 seoul on your part until r.t. and this from think a diplomatic solution to the crisis is still possible i think that they wanted some action to be taken and they knew that china and i believe also russia would not go along with what the draft was that it was really a recipe for extinction for north korea korea has also said that if there's a peace treaty signed between them and the united states and there's a halt to those maneuvers they would suspend nuclear and missile tests but 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 of change and. perhaps even historically this latest round of sanctions which was supposed to be extremely hard hitting but in the last year just the influence of both russia and china in pushing for just home a seat 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 hand. nato member turkey has signed an estimated billion dollar deal to buy russia's advanced us four hundred missile system. the as four hundred missile system deal has already been signed by
officials as far as i know the first installment was also transferred this process will continue between turkey and russia while the delivery of this particular system is a russian s four hundred system which is surface to air missiles and what we're looking at here is the first installment the first payment on a deal that we estimate is was around two point five billion u.s. dollars and russia's new system is the next generation edge of fence system and we're looking at a range of targets aerial targets ranging from aircraft and also nanda craft drones and also very in types of missiles and to take those targets down we're looking at a system that deploys three different types of missiles this new system is apparently twice as good as the old one so let's look at further at some of the capabilities of this particular system it can engage of two eighty targets all at the same time it has a maximum target range of four hundred kilometers and a maximum target speed of four point eight kilometers per second so powerful stuff we're looking in terms of those who forces as we say we're talking about the deal
china have already requested it and also it looks like india out there they're interested in this particular deal as well and it's also being deployed in syria so that is that's the particular day all that's what the system can do but also what are the why do implications because we know turkey is a member of nato it has the second largest army amongst the allies there and washington has already voiced some concerns there have been some so worrying moments from the pentagon about this deal going forward which is now of course it's going through and in the meantime there's been a decline in relations between anchor and washington or is it the same time we've seen an improvement between ankara and wasco also at the same time when pressed president to announce this particular deal he said that all the differences with russia are all in the past and particularly any control this is that they might have had well in their dealings about syria. and up of the news this hour don't forget to check us out on social media on facebook twitter and of course our website that faulty dot com obvious. back at the top of the alice so to stay with us.
credit is one of the basic instruments to drive an economy but it can also lead to tragedy i did i took a line the whole gist i can be got and that that the debt style game big and in the spiral not. many lives have been broken believe excessive to the banks got you into trouble and all the big bankers got big. government the banks but i just didn't think of the ordinary men who washed morning through the back under don't buy creditors people see no future bad face from happening you know you become ill you do job your relationship breaks down you become a casualty is dead a lifelong trap or is there a way out of those actually in front of it and carbonneau would market to ditch a bill for. a few more.
when lawmakers manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. in the final merry go round lifts and we don't want. to ignore middle of the room six. million real new. syria paradoxically. come paddies in was a situation like israel and palestine is not a country where i meet a lot of people without hope. everybody.
