1:02 pm
that he's very glad that the daughter of the russian citizen usually is recovering and he's also said that he hopes that her father on the mend to also he has stressed that russia still has a lot of questions that has asked repeatedly but which remain unanswered pretty much russia even wrote an official mail an official letter to the o.p.c. w. those questions include some technical details that russia has inquired to the c.w. asking them what information the u.k. has passed to the un nobody regarding the investigation raising to share with moscow and whether or not the o.p.c. w in turn will be sharing that with russia assassinated sergei scruple and his daughter or whether or not russia just lost track of the nerve agent and did mr lavrov have anything to say about how russia's going to respond to those claims well he said that russia has no motive in this that russia that for at least a decade russia has no beef with the script because in two thousand turned that's
1:03 pm
when the double agents what took place between moscow and london pretty much would close the book on this for russia and likely needed kremlin approval so when you are citing a source it means that you have some inside information from the investigation and it's not clear why this c.n.n. needed exactly this in this particular situation because linking the kremlin directly to the assassination attempt is something that both trees are made the prime minister and boris johnson the foreign secretary have been saying for a long time now so it's not exactly some classified information also another point that they're making is the attack was sophisticated and only a government could be behind it so. how come it is a sophisticated attack and if it is sophisticated it's supposed to be performed and carried out on a very professional level if it's professionals who are behind it and in this case it looks very sad. sloppy because both targets are not just alive but the getting

better they're recovering so russia is indeed intending to get its its questions answered intending to get answers to its questions and so moscow is hoping to get those as early as wednesday. and we'll be following the to us in terms of that of course we've got geopolitics author david swanson for some comment as well he says that despite information being scarce right now the media's already delivered its verdict well it's not a judicial procedure this is not something brought to arbitration this is not the world court this is an accusation through the media and so russia is not being told very much and the public is not being told very much and of course that makes many of us sceptical but we just can't know whether the accusations are true or not until we're shown some evidence nonetheless a number of western countries say the entire world is on their side against russia
1:05 pm
. patience is wrong they're wearing thin with president putin and his actions we stand with our british allies and the rest of the civilized world in denouncing the brazen and brutal chemical attack carried out against the united kingdom it has become clear that russia is behind this effort to kill innocent civilians with the banned nerve agent so let's take a closer look at the global backing that british and american officials say they have over the nerve agent attack in seoul's break it seems many countries showing their support are indeed nato members for a start but even among them the still some uncertainty is david swanson again. good news on the rise and we can report next washington the white house could host a meeting between the u.s. and russian presidents with more on that d.c. correspondence america on. well here are the latest details on last month's phone call between president putin and president trump now back on march twentieth donald
1:06 pm
trump called to congratulate president putin on his reelection this move was criticized by many in the american media according to the russian aide to president putin and the white house spokesperson a bilateral meeting was planned during the phone call but today we learned that during that conversation trump invited president putin to visit washington d.c. but just as a reminder the phone call happened before the u.s. expelled sixteen russian diplomats over the poisoning of a russian x. five with russia being blamed for it of course and then russia responded in a tit for tat measure announcing the expulsion of sixty eight u.s. diplomats but the kremlin says that no meeting preparations have been made at the time but according to president putin's aide the white house was discussed as one of the possible venue's now the two have only had one face to face meeting last summer at the g. twenty summit but meeting like this would definitely be
1:07 pm

1:09 pm
a corpse or something also very important item in the deal is regarding the fate of thousands of both the civilians and army personnel kidnapped by just a standard in the past five or six years believe those are believed to be believed to be inside the prison so representatives of states which are guarantors and yes kind of talks meaning iran and turkey on supervising the process of the release of those kidnapped civilians and army personnel and eventually the syrian government. vent and tear into government institutions and establishments will be restored normal life will be restored then perhaps humanitarian aid urgent food and medical aid will also be delivered to the civilians inside and those militants who wish to stay and reconcile with the syrian government will be granted amnesty by the government and will be allowed to return back to normal life inside duma.

1:12 pm
of live pitched tents across five locations along the gaza border where they're expected to stay for the coming weeks well leaders have condemned israel's actions but they were accused of double standards by the israeli prime minister in return as holkins reports. this isn't the first incident of mass palestinian casualties in clashes with the i.d.f. tragically it won't be the last the border violence had barely stopped before the criticism of israel's actions came thick and fast from all directions the u.n. secretary general was quick to call for a full investigation he used foreign affairs chief wasn't far behind israel though is having none of it the army was doing its job if anything the soldiers that fired live bullets into the crowd deserve a medal according to the country's defense minister and investigation no child ignore the murder of hundreds of thousands of civilians in the middle east but when israel neutralize these sixteen terrorists they convene an emergency meeting of the
1:13 pm
un security council the i.d.f. will not cooperate with any investigative committee let them investigate the murders of half a million people in syria and tens of thousands in libya sudan and yemen no punches polled and some may say he does have a point multiple e.u. states have taken part in nato or u.s. led interventions in libya and syria which have contributed to civilian losses and of course they also continue to arm saudi arabia that's the spike the catastrophic situation in yemen but some old leaders return the focus to friday's brutal violence on the gaza border with president added one branding it an inhumane attack and prime minister netanyahu didn't let this go on answered the most moral army in the world will not be lectured by those who had indiscriminately bomb civilian populations for years apparently this is how april fools' day celebrated an anchor on a thinly veiled reference to turkey's tough line on kurdish groups who are unable to
1:14 pm
terrorists or perhaps the turkey's ongoing military operations in northern syria triggering a further response from the turkish president. hey netanyahu you're an occupier and it is as an occupier that you are on those lands at the same time you are a terrorist and the e.u. itself wasn't exempt from the turkish president's rhetoric don't throw stones from a glass house. one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter is an older dog but today it seems human life has become less valuable than political expediency or a good sound bite. and hawkins reporting we're staying with israel to next it's reached an agreement with the un refugee agency to send more than sixteen thousand african migrants to western countries a previous plan to return them to safer countries in africa floundered badly. it's a unique agreement with the states of israel which removes sixteen thousand two hundred
