5:30 am
don't and try to manipulate the other person and so i mean our intelligence agencies had this is one of their objectives white papers are generally circulated among contractors who do business with the government so it is a little unusual to see these things out in the public as far as i know the most obvious interpretation would be that this is a pushback against the allegations that have been made consistently for the last eighteen months about so-called russian troll farms influencing elections across the west and it's interesting to see that the languages that they're advertising for are the language of iran and of course north korea and russia so that would be a bit of a sort of give away about which countries they want to be targeting. now donald trump drew worldwide anger when it was reported on friday that he launched into a foul mouth rant in the oval office about immigrants several democratic lawmakers who were there claim that the president was deeply disparaging about people from central america and africa.
5:31 am
the middle. east is implicitly strong language. in the other countries. but i try to. look at the. train coming. from the president united states. or even.
5:32 am
well trump took to twitter to deny that it sure would spit admitted that the language he did use in the meeting was tough there was another shock to trump which diplomacy to study when he announced he was canceling next month's visit to britain he was due to open the new us embassy in london but he says over the cost of the new building but it is still there is more to it than that. reports this is what all the who is about is the new u.s. embassy in the area of nine elms which is being regenerated in sort of an embassy quarters. of the public next week donald trump was supposed to arrive in february or it was widely expected that you'd be cutting the ribbon and that's not happening any more clearly the old building of the u.s. embassy on that was on the sort of grand old square in the very heart of the city in the center of may fab which many people know is the most expensive location on
5:33 am
the monopoly board. but the interesting thing about the president's tweets is that there was a slight error and he accused the obama administration of selling that old building for peanuts it was in fact the bush administration before him and there have been suggestions that this whole embassy row is a way of diverting attention away from the fact that perhaps the president didn't feel like he was going to be particularly well come here in the u.k. almost two million people has signed a petition against him coming here claiming perhaps the most british reason of all that it would embarrass the queen donald trump arriving here and the marriage of london hasn't been too welcoming either take a listen to what city khan has had to say about donald trump it appears that president trump got the message from the many londoners who love and admire america and americans but find his policies in action the polar opposite of our cities
5:34 am
values this just reinforces what a mistake it was for it's a reason to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place donald trump did kind of the new embassy looks pretty realistic doesn't it but it is a wax work in fact the statue from london's madame tussauds museum was placed outside the building of the delight of construction workers and passers by we spoke to a senior local labor party official who says it's clear because he's worried about facing protests we know that it's because he was going to face you know huge protests when he came here he's a deeply unpopular man. and i know we're going to be hundreds of thousands maybe a million people on the street this is the kind of pressure the don't trump would be facing if he came over here and he doesn't have the spine to take that you know he someone insults him he's straight on twitter theresa may look up to trump for exactly that reason i was alienating partners on the. european. consonants and
5:35 am
breaks it has driven a wedge between britain and europe so the u.k. is tacking towards america but it certainly shouldn't hang on the coattails of donald trump because that is about it that one ship that's going down and we do not want to be on it meanwhile the u.s. is also being called to account in europe to their new ambassador to the netherlands has come under fire from journalists it is very first news conference there he refused to defend previous remarks on the influence of eisel in europe and he's not the only one either trying to avoid the press. good. for. you should. revisit it you should not ask your readers to do support something you believe useful. or not.
5:36 am
you. know your own sort of what answer of course this is not works for me this is the last and. we're going to use cluster weapons in europe and this is like the question did you spoke with your wife. yes or no yes. when i found out. i. i. now there has been widespread panic on the u.s. pacific island of hawaii over an official alert telling people to run for cover because of a ballistic missile threat although it did turn out to be a false alarm people were sent text messages and t.v. broadcasts were interrupted to to raise the alarm. the u.s.
5:37 am
pacific command has detected a missile threat your home why a missile may impact on my own to receive within minutes this is not a drill. within minutes though officials scrambled to reassure people that there was in fact no threat at all a local congresswoman tweeted there is no incoming missile the message was sent out in the first and play the locals were already rushing to safety by this time with some trying to take shelter in storm drains the governor of hawaii apologize for the incident and blamed it on an employee pushing a button by the state. governor is now calling for a deescalation in the crisis with north korea in the week the two koreas held their first official talks in more than two years called by many and historic meeting given the tensions in the region are these moderate gas the earth is following developments. it went well which is rare to hear these days when it
5:38 am
comes to the korea's one north korea agreed to send a delegation to the winter olympics in pyongyang chang sportspeople performance for the cultural events it's simple if the north attends the lympics it's much less likely to stage a provocation launch another missile to family reunions relatives separated by the war that haven't seen each other for decades could be allowed reunions deck's month and three perhaps most importantly south korea has proposed to face meetings between the north's and the south's military officials in order to deescalate tensions at long last alternately to denuclearize the peninsula it's a long shorts but it's a start with a number and i think we should be engaged in these talks in an earnest sincere manner to give a new year's gift namely the results of the talks to the korean nations.
5:39 am
as you mentioned earlier we hope to bring a precious gift to your people that matches the expectations of our people it is been a chaotic year from escalation to escalation saber rattling and childish rhetoric near enough every month the u.s. and south korea would stage war games on the north's borders and send a message. i . they even sent nuclear bombers to the north borders north korea was no less provocative and it tested increasingly advanced ballistic missiles stage suspected nuclear weapons tests and . it now reportedly has the capacity to hate mainland united states and keep joe
5:40 am
moon has boasted he has his own button and his desk is part of who is button big contest with trump which is why these talks was so important they allow for a poor's four hundred heads to cool off and for titan fingers to ease off on the trigger is more advanced if there were as we've heard the latest talks follow months of escalation of rhetoric and saber rattling between north korea and the u.s. however the claim is aggressive attitude towards pm yang is exactly what made the diplomatic breakthrough possible in the first place tom brookstein at durham north says that these talks happened despite efforts a real opportunity for the north koreans to be other world stage they don't have much chance to do that for lots of reasons the last report the difficult relationship they've had with much of the world for
5:41 am
a long time but i think that these talks are happening certainly not because of trumpet in the sense some sense despite. that it is very telling that usually the americans are always in the room and now the americans are nowhere to be found so i think. the trump dimension is one that can't be overplayed but for negative reasons rather than positive i'm glad it's happening despite it. russia's defense ministry announced on friday that it had killed the terrorists behind a mortar attack on russia's airbase in syria it issued a video showing its strike on the militants positions. the. happened on new year's eve and left two russian officers dead days later the
5:42 am
base was targeted for a second time by more than a dozen. successfully with no casualties or damage. now the shops of clothing retailer h. and m. have been the focus of protest in south africa the firm is branded racist earlier in the week over a picture of a black boy in a hoodie with the word monkey in the jungle. i. police in johannesburg fired rubber bullets to disperse crowds after demonstrates is trash and. the retailer has already removed the picture and apologized but that hasn't stopped the backlash people on social media were outraged as well. marketing agent and puts a black child in a hoodie that reads and the coolest monkey in the jungle and the white child is the survival expert and now fox are pretending like they don't know the black children
5:43 am
have long been racially characterized as monkeys. is just irony i highly doubt they will like the money. making it seem there's a white supremacist who works for the thought it was funny to make a blackboard model who did that coolest monkey in the jungle where we did get off from spike magazine and also. for models of diversity if they thought the ad was racially insensitive. the whole issue is with this advertising campaign it's an advertising campaign that it's international it's an international campaign and it's so obvious that if you're going to use a connotation like monkey whether a child is a monkey you're going to choose a black child for the campaign and the white child as a survivor of the jungle there is not going to have connotations it's ridiculous to think it's not going to help any contagions whatsoever i think is a really sad i think what has happened is the word monkey has been used because
5:44 am
this boy is a child and the word monkey is used to describe children of all races because they're cheeky in mischief verse and you can see this across children's clothes for children of all races and this was part of a jungle themed clothing line the idea that this was somehow racially malevolent i think is utterly ludicrous i'm so disappointed by this campaign i've seen them do they always use a mix of models but this is really not you know it's time to say the least is what this campaign is it's really badly thought by a board of white directors because even if it was even if there's that opinion that it's just like badly thought it might be parents that are negatively thinking about this you cannot deny the connotations that it held i don't think this has that connotation for the vast majority of people the vast majority of people think this is a perfectly innocent campaign involving children of all races involved in the
5:45 am
jungle. now there have been days of growing unrest in the north african state of new zero with thousands against the government over planned price and tax hikes police have escalated their crackdown to using tear gas against protesters who have been hurling stones and burning tires there have been over eight hundred arrests so far a major demonstrations planned for sunday to coincide with the seventh anniversary of the arab spring uprising. thank you thank you.
5:46 am
the ring to be on the rest of the governments the stars the plans for the nation they do include rises in basic goods including few the unrest began around the same time as the anti-government demonstrations in iran but went largely unnoticed by the west. i. think. a lot of the root of it is just a canard it's the problem of youth unemployment i personally haven't been able to find a job for a long time but if people have a job they don't have any problem with the government there are demands at the following suspend the twenty eighteen film in slow return to the original prices of goods and hire one member from every paul family these are in short. what happened yesterday is a violation of the law too says state of emergency has been declared in tunisia
5:47 am
these protests are the result of operations that aim to review social unrest we are free nations and according to the constitution and human rights the people are absolutely free to criticize the government and even protest we the government will definitely not tolerate some protesters who want to destroy public property or disrupt public discipline. in the past week what has happened on the ground throughout the nation of iran is something the world must take note of it is a spontaneous expression of fundamental human rights united states stands unapologetically with those in iran who seek freedom for themselves we will not be quite. well sociology professor sides addict as say that the reason iran's protests got more coverage than she is that one is seen as an enemy of the united states.
5:48 am
tunisia is on the mediterranean it's a small country not many people know about that in american society in iran to many in america have been i mean. in a major obstacle for american policy in the middle east since its new pollution one hundred seventy nine in their case all to you are very happy to look at any small detail that happens in the small porters to inflated the media to look as if this is the end of the regime so it is totally different approach in covering tunisia. protests totally different. now a space mission already shrouded in secrecy is driving even more mysterious than a dream is about the fate of a top secret u.s. government satellite the reusable space x. rocket which launched it has safely returned questions are being asked over what
5:49 am
happened to the pilot the pentagon refused to comment. i would have to refer you to space x. who who who. connected to watch your sprint we're doing is. that that's the answer what do you have to have to refer you to space x. which actually launch. which i mean doesn't make any sense minimal but again that's that's that's the answer nobody knows what happened to it i will and i will take that i'll come back to you on. the launch was streamed online it only showed the initial launch stage breaking off when the rocket entered the atmosphere because of the secrecy around the payload although it's normal practice to show just part of the launch it's strange not to hear any updates at all on the satellite for nearly a week after the supposed to the left the. space x. has on the other hand commented on the launch saying the falcon nine rocket did everything is expected in a statement the company's president refused to comment further on the satellites
5:50 am
fate because of its classified nature. you've been watching the weekly here in r.t. we're back with more news for you about half an. i think there is indeed potential to kind of come out of this impossible for implementing means governments by next week on the un peace operation this is very sensitive politically contributing countries to be eventually offer troops it's off to decide to whom they have confidence and to have. some animal rights activists are just upset that we eat meat period which makes no sense by the way because animals eat other animals and we're supposed to be equal
5:51 am
with animals but suddenly they don't want to humans eating other animals so in a sense they're saying that animals have the right to eat other animals but humans don't have a right to eat other animals even though they think we're all equal so some of there's a logical inconsistency. in the heart of the swiss on the shores of lake geneva. in the land of banks and discretion you'll discover the most secretive place in switzerland. in the middle of a warehouse complex a stone's throw from the border with france is the geneva freeport. watched by surveillance cameras and surrounded by barbed wire fences this complex is traditionally a custom zone where merchandise is stored before being exported abroad. but today

5:53 am
from fire a special room houses hundreds of extinguishers that can be activated at any moment . another reason the freeport take so many precautions is because behind its gates rest priceless works of art thought to be worth tens of billions of dollars it's perhaps the world's largest museum but a museum no one can visit. the geneva freeport is one of europe's best kept secrets. works by rembrandt leonardo da vinci and thousands of antiquities a treasure the size of which nobody knows the scale or the value. of another secret is the name of the owners of the works.

5:56 am
a sample of action for people to. step out and look amazing. jennifer about within the sequel you don't see it's a coffee don't sell think of it to do the nickel for don't see it. the watchword is secrecy. eve bouvier was originally a shipper but he transformed his old shipping company not to look cute founded in one thousand fifty nine into an art market multinational. it is now present in geneva luxembourg and singapore. the man nicknamed the freeport king had a great idea to earn client loyalty his company would not only pack and ship artworks it would provide in geneva twenty thousand square meters of storage space along with framing and restoration workshops. it also offers its clients special rooms in which to admire their assets or
