british scientists admit they are unable to identify the source of the nerve agent used to poison a formidable agent and his daughter in the u.k. after weeks of the u.k. and its allies squarely blaming russia. nor verify the precise source but we provided to the scientific information to the government. the international chemical weapons watchdog the o.p.c. w is expected to shed more light on the case as it meets in the hague shortly. to get the facts straight on this whole situation we have a final conclusion will be reached there as to what happened in seoul. president putin's remarks came during talks with turkey's leader in ankara where they're due
to attend the trial and told the mess with iran. and the manchester united legend on the european champion peter schmeichel kicks off his new show on our t.v. he travels to one of the cities hosting the world cup matches in russia this summer . a very warm welcome you're watching our team international with me thank you aaron good to have you with us. countries around the world are looking to the international chemical weapons watchdog today for our answers in the script poisoning case the o.p.c. w. is set to meet slated the day to discuss the attack on the former spy and his daughter in southern england a month ago ahead of the meeting the chief of the british military laboratory may have partly debunked the ukase core search and that moscow was to blame he said they couldn't tell where the nerve agent used was produced we have not
verified the for say source but we provided the scientific information to the government but you have not been able to establish porton down that this was made in russia as i said it's our job to provide aid you know the scientific evidence that identifies for the particular and their region is but it's not our job to see we are actually was manufactured to be clear you're not able to say where it is from we haven't yet been able to do that but when i look at the evidence i mean the people whom important they were absolutely categorical and i asked the guy where so i said are you sure and he said there's no dogs now the u.k. defense research laboratory however maintains that the substance is not a chalk a military grade nerve agent the british government swiftly moved to defend its position by claiming that its accusations against russia remain valid despite this
latest revelation is that is it's working from a larger intelligence picture and that russia has a record of state sponsored assassinations and views its former intelligence officers as targets but it also says there's no other explanation it deems plausible but with scientists unable to verify the source it's possible london may have jumped the gun as more guns do you have explains. scotland yard said it first they need. these was a professional assassination attempt whoever did it made sure to leave as few traces as possible and it was a geisha of this complexity and size will understandably take some time and will ask for the public's continued support and patience the media didn't need much time pundits for when the whole boring you know investigation part but that's the media no surprise they need their ratings politicians they only needed
a week is highly likely that russia was responsible between the poles russia culpable culpable culpable for the attempted murder is k. is culpable our quarrel is with putin's kremlin and we can get overwhelming you likely that it was his decision what's remarkable is the detectives silent technical experts silent no details at all russia is asking for some any information in fact a sample of the nerve agent perhaps so far nothing instead downing street gets down to the punishment with its allies keeping the whole innocent until proven otherwise likely is good is guilty. we are without a doubt that russia is responsible there is no plausible alternative explanation nearly two hundred diplomats expelled by britain myths allies and russia diplomatic
relations hate rock bottom and then we get the chemical expertise from britain's own laboratory we have not verified the precise source you have not been able to establish at porton down that this was made in russia as i said it's our job to provide eight you know the scientific evidence that identifies the particular narrow feature. is you'd think that would at least slightly embarrassed those shouting loudest about russia's guilt now really it comes down to one particular job certain scientists now porton down say their job is to work out what the substance was never stablished that it is not a chaka matter is by definition of the translation of the name which means newcomer part of a program in a soviet union in the late seventy's and eighty's the movie talks dozens and dozens of different nerve agents have been synthesised not just by russia the head of
porton down refused to clarify whether his own lab oratory had its own stockpile for the snow we have anything like that would ever have come from mars or you know leave the four walls of our facilities we deal with a number of very toxic substances as part of the work that we do we've got the highest levels of security in controls the new virtual formulas have been available in public books for nearly a decade now and pretty much any specialist with solid knowledge of organic chemistry can create it you're going to jewel's if it's really a novacek we're dealing with it it's not a real problem to synthesize that kind of nerve agent all the necessary components easily available on the open market this it says does not require sophisticated procedures any specialist an organic chemistry would be able to make it. the fact
that the experts can't determine the russians did it doesn't mean that u.k. authorities will change their mantra it is our assessment that russia was responsible for this brazen and reckless act and there is no other plausible explanation remarkable how quickly things escalated and all. that faith based highly likely assessment. and russia has always strenuously denied its involvement in the poisoning despite frequent accusations against the state and even the president the russian presidential spokesman dimitri peskov says that boris johnson will have to apologize for his inflammatory statements against russia the case foreign ministers have been plain invited. half to look at noise of the colleagues have to apologise to russia somehow this is a classic russian strategy of trying to conceal the needle of truth in
a haystack. and the station. will have to apologize to russia somehow the stretch from russia is one respects no borders challenging the values we share which europeans will have to apologize to russia russia is a q a present danger we have got to be fully organized to meet that danger but i have to apologize. abject humiliation of the british government the prime minister and in particular boris johnson the foreign secretary in fact for him i believe this is a resigning mark because he didn't just join in the chorus of blame russia who live on national television on this broadcast. i have spoken. to a very guy who made the game on behalf. and he said the
guide told him that it was russia that did it could only have been russia that did this was what another mistake it was a lie. loesser is looking for answers to at least twenty questions regarding the script palin vesta geisha during wednesday's meeting of the a.p.c. w. they cover issues such as the sharing of information by the british side and other members president putin is hoping for some definitive from the meeting what good will we do it amazes me how fast this anti russia hysteria has come about we're calling in a p c w meeting to get the facts straight on this whole situation in which we have proposed at least twenty questions for their consideration we hope a final conclusion will be reached there as to what happened in seoul is pretty but of course we're interested in a comprehensive investigation chemical experts james told us that says that many states know about this type of a weapon and i go to manufacture them it would be natural to pin the blame on on
russia russia has has indeed made these part of their weapons stockpiles we're talking about a development that probably took place more than thirty years ago. with the fall of the soviet union. the word has gotten out to many states as to how to make these things many states know about this to the point where we're just chemists talk together our know about these types of things and not i don't work for a state system and i learned this just by talking with chemists from overseas i'm not russian terrorists either so there are chemists round the world that know this type of thing that have nothing to do with russia. now president putin's comments on the script power poisoning case came during a meeting with the turkish need to reject the one and ankara the meeting between russia turkey and wrong is due to get underway later on wednesday. joins us now
from ankara with more on this sale here good to see you what can we expect from today's summit do you think. good morning walt first of all on tuesday we listened to vladimir putin and dawn here in ankara and i'll tell you what they sounded like they totally know what they're doing together in syria as if all the conflict obstacles on the ground are easy to overcome cease fire violations ankara's all of french offensive in the north to syria and the kurdish resistance to what the message was that everything can be sorted regional powers even if they are backing the opposing sides work together when words are followed by specific actions now on wednesday as you were
saying the presidents of turkey and russia will be joined by hassan rouhani the leader of iran and the three guarantors of the peace process in syria will come together again they do that once every few months to have a look back at what's been done and also to think of the next steps in soon we will hear what the trio will have to say about that a party that's not been working together in with the trio but still remains in syria no surprises here it's the u.s. but lately the americans have been sending mixed messages about whether they will remain in syria not and about the peace process in general. book become another syria like very soon very soon. very soon we're coming out of saudi arabia. is very interested no decision and i said well why didn't you want to say maybe don't have to pay we are in syria to fight isis and that is our mission and the mission
isn't over and we're going to complete that mission. while we are looking forward to hearing some sort of comments from the three presidents about the futures of all of america and their backing in syria they might talk about it they might not we will find out very soon. as he apparently speaking to us live there from ankara where this meeting will be taking place later today thanks. now we asked michael maloof the former pentagon official about the contradicting messages coming from washington the u.s. was never invited into syria in the first place we just walked in and occupied areas controlled by the kurds who were at that time against the assad government so how long the u.s. can sustain that and under what authority the congress never has approved it and it's costing us billions of dollars so i think at some point there's got to be
oversight by congress on on the expenditures by the u.s. in syria and what what the policy is i think what all of this shows is a is a lack of any policy formulation strategic vision and and and game if you will of what what the u.s. intention is in maintaining troops in syria and i think that the trump administration needs to come clean with that so far it has not. while many cities in syria lie in ruins after years of fighting i still some doubt trying to make the best of it video agency crew traveled to aleppo where they filmed a local park or team going through their paces.
assess friday and then and then our team was established nearly four years ago i missed the crisis and brutal war in the country and it trained under difficult circumstances. were both facing many problems due to a lack of facilities like the inventory training and what not any injury means we have to stop for two or three months. on the run very few professional parker trainers we're using you tube and other facilities on the internet to contribute to the movement and it's experience. we'll be right back after this short break stay with us. yeah they've been waiting on this for a long time because i'm talking about the dollar back in this world reserve
currency countries are tired of funding in america's wars because ever there's got to be trainer in dollars including oil to buy oil got to buy dollars first that means america gets a commission he's that line of wage wars all over the world. apply to many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch to the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money just kill the narrowness of spending to get to the twenty million or one player. who gets an experience like no one else on to because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful game played great so one more chance with. the base is going to.
welcome back now an american photojournalist says he feels betrayed by the f.b.i. that's after he spent seven months held by terrorists inch syria much freer says al qaeda also took his credit cards using them to purchase various items including computers he claims the f.b.i. track to these transactions and he used the information to infiltrate the terrorist organization manchuria was trying to cross the syrian border into turkey when he was captured by al nusra that time affiliated with al qaeda he spent two months in different rebel held prisons in aleppo in twenty thirteen he managed to escape becoming the first westerner to do so now he's written a book about his ordeal called the dawn prayer describing the nightmare of his captivity. well we managed to cut out with much ahead of the book's launch later
this month. i write in syria eighteen days before my abduction during the time i was photographing the war from the free syrian army side i was the air force intelligence and come out to bell which were two of the most dangerous parts of aleppo at the time and on new year's eve after i got the photographs i went there for i was on my way out forty five minutes from the turkish border when i was abducted by the on the ocean front ok i'm in syria i didn't want anybody coming to rescue me there was no way you can land seals in the areas that i was in one prison yes it was out of the country every other one was in a lot so there's just no way to fly black coats low enough we were not going to get shot down so i didn't want anybody coming to get me but i did want them doing the best that they could to keep me safe and none of that was done did not really matter if i was with them or not or whatever because i was just going to die anyway so i think every hostage i was held there would be on their feet pretty much meant
nothing to the f.b.i. their policy is we don't talk to the bad guys we don't pay for stages so let's make the best situation for ourselves and exploited james told me he's basically he's a coward he ignored me ignored my e-mails he ignored my message on facebook and he did his best to sweep all this under the rug and he did a good job because now he's gone and it's just coming out now. and i just eleven weeks the twenty eighteen world cup kicks off in russia and legendary danish goalkeeper and manchester united star paid us michael is one of our guides through the tournament he's second out the host cities and first on the list is missing off guard all of which the about four hundred kilometers east of moscow. it's. all come to nice to know that
brand new arena will see some serious action when place argentina just one of those six games being played in this magnificent rina and i can promise you it won't be in snow it will be on grass of course but what is this city all about i'm peter schmeichel and i'm about to find out. the first thing you need to know about nice and all is that it was risky as it used to be called thirty years ago most people sleep the off limits to foreigners and the reason for. the gas factory. in the second world war all the factory was forced to produce military equipment
and because of that they got completely flattened by german problems. that's how hard you have to pull it. mazing enough it's only one hundred days for the local community to completely rebuild the front and then for there without the running of the city became a restricted zone i'm just going to go. until the house because. this is now a multi-billion dollar and around twenty thousand people work here that used to be a long haul not to do five times longer but. these fellows are right. i think it's everyone's lunch now i'm on my own. the factories mind i'm completely on my own. i could actually make my own. no one would know but.
i just came from the factory where they produce the cars and i'm driving a good sale next slice absolute denies you know i'm a big boy i like to be holy something needed bit more and i know they've got exactly what i'm looking for. it's a raisin shelf and say i'll fold this it raises money from icy conditions like this and so it is still leaves a little bit of pull over the place that is also set up a professional job of us and a lot of professionals i don't. but i'm getting that. this
judge is a fun ride but it's so difficult. i need a bigger cause a bigger chaka big or whatever. but an easy a joy. so let's see what this is. it's got a good enough but no three. i think it's much easier to be a goalkeeper than a rally driver. if i was to have it plays in the reality. this would be my job my place see hold still cool drive. was really good fun. i really enjoyed that and how can you not what i also like to do is to do a little bit of culture and want to. it was this museum exhibits twelve thousand
pieces of russian historical and amongst them this one and i really like this this is the kind in speech he was credited for being one of the pie in the is abstract. so nothing abstract about this i'm going to take moves right back to the russian roots we all know this you know this is cold oklahoma it's everywhere and russia. see the before and then she proceeded with this it's so common that even fisa are using it on their official motioned us and now i'm going to have a go at painting one of these and this is osama hello would you teach me how to
paint you. a fish in the challenge to. see mine is not too bad but i think she needs a little bit of practice. but he would not say we love to hear your thoughts on all of our stories tied to get in touch by following us on social media what about get about thirty minutes with the latest headlines for you that.

i. this is going bust broadcasting around the world from washington d.c. i'm partial to coming up today our correspondent dan poling tells us about the future of rights in the u.s. and oklahoma and talkie and the energetic and always insightful farmall of the stocks whooshes back and we'll talk tech stocks as they continue their volatile ride and reaction to some of president trump's tweets and with regard to amazon his words today plus r.t. correspondent ashley banks tells us about one of the most important ingredients in our cell phones and electric cars and why there is a clamor for that commodity is to jam packed show so let's go first we had some. mick mulvaney the acting head of the u.s. consumer financial protection bureau is asking congress to weaken the c.f.p.
b.'s powers to protect consumers mr mulvaney who is also serving as the director of the office of management and budget once congress to remove c f p b's independence by subjecting the agency to annual congressional funding and the ability for congress to over term c.f.p. be decisions and finally to place the agency under more direct control by the president see if p.p. is independent funding through the federal reserve was intended to protect it and therefore consumers from political influence making it depended upon congress could enable punishments against c.f.p. by congress for applying the law mr mulvaney is likely to be questions on this and his proposals when he testifies before the house financial services committee later this month. and wal-mart is partnering with money gram intern. national to upgrade its international money transfer business wal-mart says customers will now be able to go to any of the forty seven hundred locations in the u.s.
