1:04 pm
russia's defense ministry believes the lack of explanation raises many questions over the u.s. special forces operation in zot. meanwhile the syrian army supported by russia's air force our are fighting to eliminate eyesores last foothold into a resort province the liberation of the city has been see widely seen as a major breakthrough in the war on terror after being under jihadist see for three years presence there are now trying to return to some kind of normality while the city's youngest are now experiencing a new way of life and also tastes or so for the very first time a smear against reports. what these people have been through is indescribable joy and saw that. you know how to little out of saddam in the way he didn't even take. my left hand you can have the video we can hear
1:05 pm
about it we can read about it watch it but we won't truly understand but it ought to be a need to our no one money making tool but one that has not only an m.p. as always it was the young and the elderly hit hardest that died first and again the last thing ok let's do it do it a little hard to hide it and then i do agree insulin is to me sound i know. if it wasn't hunger it was isis shelling if not that i lack of medicine but the city survived life even did as or is still far from normal but at least they won't be starving to death anymore dawn of the times when people would fight to the death over scraps of food now convoys are coming in day and night with food
1:06 pm
with medicine as well as things like vegetables fruits candies these are things that the people of that has or haven't seen for three long years. i did my a bit of born and he. for ninety. four i desired a microphone was what i for syrians all know what dead is or has been through and the nation's heart goes out to its citizens even the older kids can't remember eating anything that wasn't grown locally. or. let me see. of course news that someone was giving out free but not as quickly spread at first it was a dozen children. then it was dozens and dozens. of
1:07 pm
. the more enthusiastic children ate the skins before realizing that something wasn't quite right well it was worth it just to see their smiles and they are sure in india do. it was a fun election and there are still plenty of challenges isis still holds a small part of the city is also reconstruction providing clean water and fuel but despite all that this is a city born again more i guess the of see from that is on syria now a protest against a menu macron has seen fighting break out between students and police in the paris university where the french president has given a speech on the reshaping of the european union. it
1:08 pm
was. was. the was. was it was hundreds of protested against emanuel michael speech sorbonne university many of them student school activists unhappy with what they see as being the pro-business policies of emanuel and the fact that he's introduced new legislation the working code in practice here in france using executive orders and bypassing the parliamentary process no money or much call speech today was about outlining his vision for you of the run draft of ideas for europe over the next ten years and beyond and including in some of those ideas was how he saw europe should
1:09 pm
deal with migration and feature only a united europe can efficiently defend our borders secured received those with the right to asylum and help them integrate it all and send back those who don't meet the requirements for such protection as long as the procedure for receiving asylum seekers remains long and scrappy as long as we fail to organize migrants being returned without the right to remain we lose both inefficiency and inhumanity. we are in need of profound changes i proposed to our counterparts to create a european army and i opened this initiative towards the french army and all militaries coming from all european countries voluntarily that france has to possess a joint intervention force common defense budgets you common doctrine to act grand plans for the night and he seems to be opposing himself as europe strong learn the person to lead europe into the feature and the tone of his. leaves no doubt about
1:10 pm
that we have laid out our proposals i won't yield to those who promote hate and division i can't make any more proposals it is up to the e.u. to make them. and it's still unclear how its ideas will go down in europe and in germany in particular because not all speech just comes two days after the elections there and it's in that could be a stumbling block for his napoleonic style plans because after the vote and merkel there has to form a coalition which will most probably include f.t.p. who are opposed to the idea of common european finances. r.t. paris spoke to political commentator even yelland who says that if merkel forms the so-called jamaican coalition it might be at odds with plans to reform the european union early lindau's party are opposed although they occupy the same
1:11 pm
political space that sort of essential little space that all marsh occupied they have an entirely different view of budgetary in the european union are very much more concerned about how the german taxpayer is going to respond i think the greens to a degree are old walmart's was my position at the liberal party in germany so it is a very good question it's too early to say at this moment but certainly these all of the questions that need to be asked about the future shape of the year we're going forward meanwhile the cochairmen leading figure to the alternative for germany party frock a petri has resigned amid a split within the party it comes right after the group secured seats in the german parliament for the first time in its history our europe correspondent peter all of a breakdown how it unfolded. true has stunned alternative for germany and all of those watching german politics by announcing that she will step down and leave the
1:12 pm
party this follows an historic victory for the for the a.f.p. as they took their first seat in the bundestag in sunday's federal elections though the announcement that she will leave the party follows a stuart but sweet statement on monday that she would not sit with a fifty members in parliament. we want to create real policy and that's a long consideration i decided not to be a member of the parliamentary group in the bundestag i would like to ask you for your understanding i will not answer any questions on this. for petrie had been the face of alternative for germany since she took over the lead of the party from bend luka who she helped oust a relic of sorts within the party a few years ago she had pushed a more moderate view for the party certainly a right wing view but far more moderate than say the likes of alexander golland or
1:13 pm
others who are idle who were running as the candidates for chancellor the special candidates as they're called in this most recent election we can see what it comes to t.v. appearances certainly petry far more composed at times than some of those that will remain in leadership in alternative to germany. in violation of our economy guys thank you thank you to. get back yes it does seem that the relationship between petrie and others at the top of the party has become well frankly toxic we heard from its vital saying it has self and alex on the gallant haven't spoken to for a tree in months this is as they were fighting a campaign election campaign against well a lot of opposition here in germany to try and enter the bundestag the fact that
1:14 pm
this is existed and gone on for so long it was clear it must come to a head at some point and it seems that they've done not immediately post election petrie's not the only one who's going to be leaving the party pianist and three others including her husband marcus quite still who say and a very influential figure in the party will also leave as well the question that's been left is did they jump where they pushed. well as peter mentioned there and america's victories being overshadowed by the success of the alternative for germany party the country is now seeing large scale protests following sunday's result activists from both sides of the political divide gathered once the preliminary results came out there was also a rally in the city of dresden by the supporters from the anti islamic movement while in hamburg the activists marched against the party of success accusing them of xenophobia racism and sexism while some experts blame for the rise of the
1:15 pm
f.t. others didn't hesitate to blame it on the now infamous russian hackers although the media failed to find evidence that they in any way influence the election it's the absence of hacking that seemingly now has everybody suspicious. has been looking at the wider claims against supposed russian online ference in foreign elections the russian meddling predictions fell flat when it came to the german election despite the initial hysteria. we don't see that putin has meddled in the election campaign maybe they didn't try maybe it's still coming allegations of russian controlled automated accounts promoting a.f.d. hashtags and the run up to the vote was about as senator as it got and the head of the german federal election committee even felt confident enough to tell a russian news agency there was no evidence of interference but when it comes to last year's u.s. presidential election it seems neither time nor lack of proof can stem the flow of
1:16 pm
allegations of kremlin meddling that's despite a stanford university study demonstrating that false stories weren't the reason for hillary's loss and that the two most believed news stories were in fact pro clinton articles our data suggests that social media were not the most important source of election news for fake news to have changed the outcome of the election a single fake article that would need to have had the same persuasive effect as thirty six television campaign ads nevertheless fears of russian meddling seem to be mounting most recently in the upcoming catalan independence referendum that has infuriated the spanish government according to some russia is once again lurking in the background and pulling the strings one of the most circulated daily newspapers in spain has come to that not so surprising conclusion and our channel is one of the main targets of the article work use of running stories about the situation in catalonia forty two times since the end of august not sure why a news channel reporting news is so alarming but yes apparently they counted they
1:17 pm
also claim that one of our headlines that reads the e.u. will respect the cattle and referendum is out now fake news but respect is exactly what the european commission president said if it were to be a yes. in favor of independence suspect. we will respect that. many indian so it's unclear what their issue is the kremlin's position on the matter is also to be found in the peace stating that the issue of catalan independence is one for spain to address. but it seems such denials coming from moscow don't matter to those pushing and increasingly shaking their doubts every time the elites of whichever country feels that there might be a some sort of populist revolt or a vote against what the elites think they should be voting for they almost. actively say oh it must be russia interfering in these elections because they might get her and that result that they don't want but it's crazy because we have seen time and time and time again there is no evidence of russian hacking still ahead
1:18 pm
for you this iraqi could have been celebrating a referendum on their potential independence from iraq we'll have a look at that in detail after the break. in case you're new to the game this is how it works not the economy is built around . perforation washington washington controls the media the media and. voters elected businessmen to run this country business equals power. bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. what holds it to you
1:19 pm
something to. put themselves on a lot. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. to write for us this is what. three of the more people. interested in the waters. there should. hello again you with r.t. nice celebrations have swept through the streets of verbal capital of the kurdish populated region of iraq the kurds have voted in an independence referendum despite opposition from both baghdad and abroad. we just want to show the world what our people want done in the world that we want
1:20 pm
to head for independence in a democratic way through dialogue and negotiations with baghdad this is an unconstitutional decision against the social fabric of our citizens we will not recognize the referendum or its results. well six million people were eligible to vote and turn act was reportedly seventy percent official results are expected by the end of the week but the prediction is that there will be an overwhelming yes vote baghdad sees the referendum is another sort of destabilization of an already fragile state and doesn't want to lose its oil rich region or the kurds or one of the largest ethnic groups with or without a state some forty million people spread across four neighboring countries turkey syria iraq and also iran all those nations have opposed the referendum fearing it would embolden their own kurdish community iran has closed its kurdish airspace and started conducting military drills on its border turkey for its part is conducting
1:21 pm
joint military drills with iraq and threaten to block an oil pipeline operated by the kurds ankara even suggested the possibility of military action. nobody should expect us to tolerate a new conflict zone right next to our border this recent development poses a threat to our nation's very existence and its future we will not hesitate to take military action similar to what we did in syria when we read its cities of eisel fighters as i have said we could take action at any time but we discussed the iraqi kurdish referendum with a dueler from dar a kurdistan media network and also a former cia officer jack rice. it is actually kind of surprising for iraqi kurds and the kind of harsh rhetoric we're hearing from president add on because as you know that turkey the kurdistan region had had excellent trade and economic
1:22 pm
relations up in the past few years and here is that he's in a fight against all the kurdish people and once he's recently he's the rationale behind opposing this referendum apart from the fact it is held by a group of people called the kurds theories that this is a ripple effect we're talking about six million people who are kurds in northern iraq but there's another six million or so in iran there's another couple million in syria there's fourteen and a half million in turkey there some in armenia i mean the fear is that if one gets independence what about the others what's the possibility of a larger greater kurdistan if one starts to get truly autonomy and really a country of their own does this mean they actually band together remember the turks have already said they will go to war over this. america's top military general says north korea's weapons test or a show of power to protect the regime he also said peeling yang's reaction stems from the situation has been put in over the past year and a half my assessment based intelligence everitt is that kim jong. development of
1:23 pm
nuclear capability in his development of missile technology is primarily associated with regime survival that's not to say that they don't propose a threat to shove korea into others in the region but my judgment is that is what has driven his. development over the past eighteen months. ok well let's talk about this statement a bit further kelly joins us now from the united states. what should we read into what was said there then. well this comes from the highest ranking general in the united states that was done for a confirmation hearing before the armed services committee in u.s. congress he's actually facing confirmation to be to once again serve another term as the joint chiefs of staff and he's pointed out that the reason that it appears that north korea is pursuing nuclear proliferation seems to be based on the desire
1:24 pm
for the regime to survive. and that he furthermore is it is admitting that these economic sanctions and and further military action have not been deterring them from carrying this out now we've seen recently donald trump being quite vocal tweeting we've seen his tweet a little rocket man won't say it won't stay much longer now it's possible that these kinds of actions could be putting pressure on to pyongyang and putting them into a corner where they feel threatened now it's also important to note when he was testifying dunford said while the political space is clearly very charged right now we haven't seen a change in the posture of north korea north korean forces which we watch very closely now there's been quite a quite a war of words between north korea's leaders and the president of the united states
1:25 pm
it's been an ongoing situation now we've seen north korea recently tacit the beginning of september their first hydrogen bomb and there is now talk of a hydrogen bomb being tested in the pacific there's been a call for a double freeze with russia and china proposing that north korea and its nuclear proliferation and provocative missile tests with south korea and doing its military exercises and getting rid of the strike enabling fad missile system which has been erected in the south but that proposal doesn't seem to be really recognize the international community and others just haven't followed behind this proposal and. hear these heated words coming from the you to the president of the united states and the leaders of north korea now at the moment questions are being raised about how dangerous this really could be and could this war of words possibly escalate into a heated situation with very dangerous consequences let's take a look at what's been happening and what's been said.
1:26 pm
year of strategic patience. with the north korean regime has failed the united states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies our respective leader kim didn't own but said the u.s. would be unhappy to witness north korea's strategic power and its independence day and call for frequently sending big and small new packages. that make it worth threat to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never seen north korea has finished preparation for a go on strike and will launch it even the u.s. does not act sensibly and a threat to the united states george territories will be met with
1:27 pm
a massive military response the u.s. neglects the international community's will stop peace on the korean peninsula pyongyang will retaliate against attempts to impose sanctions and pressure from washington with powerful council measures the forthcoming measures to be taken by the d.p. r. k. will cause the us the greatest pain and suffering it has ever gone through in its entire history but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. since the united states declared war on our country we will have every right to take countermeasures including the right to shoot down u.s. strategic bombers even when they are not inside our country's airspace the question of who won't be around much longer will be answered then. your snot international thanks being with us tonight we'll have more news in half an. hour.
1:28 pm
