heaped praise on his guest at a meeting in the white house the u.s. president called the relationship between america and france a special one and he had his very own unique way of showing it. but the united states lonely frogs thank you. mr president the old saying what a great relationship we have and they're actually correct it's not fake news finally it's not fake news so it's a great honor they don't know that you're here but we do have a very special relationship in fact i get that piece of. peace we have to make them for years perfect so it is really it is really great to be with you and your special right now a lot of the basis of recent unity between donald trump and french president mccraw
8:02 pm
on has been the recent attack on syria france and the united states along with the u.k. cooperated in the recent air strikes in syria now it seems pretty clear that mccrie on was hoping that this recent attack could kind of lay the basis for a continued cooperation between the united states and france kron has been referring to the united states as kind of a gerund turf contemporary multi-lateralism however when he brought this rhetoric up at the white house donald trump didn't seem quite eager to go along with it in the long run we need to bring peace want to make sure that syria does not become an enemy in the region be we have spent seven trillion dollars in the middle east and we've got nothing for it nothing less than nothing so far as i'm concerned that difference and striking rebuff from trump is a little bit of a blow to mccraw especially when he himself bragged about the possibility that he
8:03 pm
had convinced donald trump to keep u.s. military forces in syria now donald trump says that that's not the case but mcclellan has been insisting that it's him who is responsible for convincing trump to keep a military presence in syria trump later went on to underline the fact that. united states will be leaving syria as soon as they can as far as syria's concerned i would love to get out i'd love to bring our incredible warriors back home when it came to the iran deal just an hour before the press conference donald trump and the french president they were both very adamant in their positions trump was at that point saying what he said for a long time which is opposition to the p five plus one conclusion in the nuclear deal whereas mcclellan was saying that there was no good plan b. that they needed to stick to the nuclear deal people know my views on the aranda was a terrible being old should have never ever been made we could have made a good deal or a reasonable deal the original was a terrible deal we have to take it as
8:04 pm
a part of the road because your trip which is security in the oval room it's insane it's ridiculous it should have never been made but we will be talking about what we want to do it contains iranian prisons and the bridges and d.c. view it's part of this broad broader picture going out going to be restarting anything they restart it they could have big problems bigger than they've ever had before and you could mark it down they restart their nuclear program they will have bigger problems than they have ever had before but after sitting down with the donald it seems the clown has changed his tune somewhat this is mic on after meeting with trump. the people. on the barnacle for a number of months i've been saying that this was not a sufficient deal but it will enable us at least until twenty twenty five to have some control over their nuclear activities if we therefore wish to work on a new deal with iran but mr president you were saying that there was no plan b.
8:05 pm
. not in the. iran deal wish to be preserved now you're talking about a new deal with a boundary why did you change your mind to you david but basically peace when i said there was no plan b. if you can are usually referred to the fact there is no plan it be brutal it was about climate change rather than iran's to put it. what do you have a better option i don't see it. what is a what if scenario all your plan b. i don't have any plan b. for nuclear are against against iran thank you. thank you. with . the french president added some symbolism to the meeting with president trump by presenting him with a tree sampling and the sight of the two leaders digging a hole in the white house garden of plenty of attention on twitter.
8:06 pm
i. brought up an argument that it still is a great author to take part there's a personal of these veterans or they call witness trees that that lived through the war see around you have continued to grow. looks like the bearing of bodies like a body of allah dying people for some ha ha get it's prompted across frank from paul ryan's fine at the white. house which pink floyd album in the bass that soon all those branches look like treat hanson to strangle. the new soprano season this is the band's. investigative journalist dave lindorff gave us his views on the trump micron meeting he told us the french president's comments on iran war open to
8:07 pm
interpretation. i would say this whole thing is a farce and that it looks like. it's gotten out of this is a cleaner suit with dandruff he got a little ahead of himself and he tried to back off again i mean he said that the deal is giving it's working through twenty twenty five and then you know he's talking about a new deal i think he was talking about negotiating something for beyond that to continue it because it does have an end date kind of. so that's probably what he was referring to well let's say there's not going to be any other deals if they back out of the nuclear deal i don't see why iran would it would reach any agreement with. the united states and its allies if you will in europe once they backed out of a deal that already was struck. human rights groups are demanding answers after
8:08 pm
a saudi led air strike hit a wedding party in yemen the bombing raid killed at least twenty people and injured dozens more this according to local officials but some reports suggest as many as fifty people died we warn you that the following video showing the scene of the strike is distressing and seven year old boy can be seen clinging to his father's body they are said to have traveled a long way to attend the wedding of the man's body was reportedly the last to be taken away following the air raid as the boy refused to let go of many victims were women and children. i was the bridegroom on our friends gathered in our place and were hit by an airstrike many and some people were killed and injured.
8:09 pm
this is my nephew who was injured last night by the airstrike he's two brothers who were killed. we can tack to human terry and groups for their reaction human rights watch said the saudi coalition continues to target civilians and refuses to come save victims and condemned the attack and called for an investigation meanwhile the saudi military says it is taking the report very seriously and will conduct a probe said warplanes have been bombing yemen for the past three years the intervention was launched to to prop up the yemeni government against a shia who the rebels united nations has it described the conflict as the world's worst humanitarian disaster earlier my colleagues are calling bray was joined by the former head of the red cross in yemen who explained to just how much needs to be done in the country. why didn't the family in and there is a problem with
8:10 pm
a structural collapse of the system in yemen you have problems of water you have problems of sanitation we in the international red cross we try to fix those problems otherwise there would maybe not be any running water and so on anymore so there is no doubt that what is coming into the country at the moment is not enough and more should be done humanitarian aid is to some to a large extent allowed in but the problem is that more is needed to ensure a decent level of life for the population otherwise the country goes downhill the problem is is one of a structural decay. yemen is not a country like you can find another come hell somewhere with village little infrastructure in yemen you have a lot of infrastructure and this particular infrastructure is falling to pieces and we international organization including the i.c.r.c. we try to do what we can to support these structures but of course we can only do
8:11 pm
so much so i do agree with you that bringing back the country on the back on its feet will be a long long lasting tones and that sounds like it's a technical problem that needs dealing with that aid is somehow just a front line is to do with water and food but it's not it's a there are few doctors the ones who are there are being paid the very structures of what the country needs in order to keep rolling and keep facilitating just avera the mind it's not only one of the most serious crisis that i've seen it's also as you point out one of the most complicated i have seen and i am afraid that this is becoming a feature of some of the conflicts you know some of the conflict where i work at the begin of my career were very poor country there were poor before the war poor doing the war unfortunately poor after the war very little infrastructure so in a way very little too to reconstruct and the problem was we logically should i say simple to deal with here you have something which is extremely complex you. have infrastructures which are falling to pieces up to the point that on the whole
8:12 pm
system we have commissioned a study from the well known british school that's going to carry out a full study of the health system in yemen to do to know where we are today in yemen you were very serious crisis there was a food crisis there was also a crisis that has led to one million suspected community of cases of cholera last year in a matter of six months it went like bushfire in twenty two years in the i.c.r.c. had never seen something like that and feel like an almost impossible task though because you broke almost a year ago quite passionately about your experience in thai ease the difficulty of getting into certain places just what kind of uphill struggle is there for aid workers once they get together unfortunately we had a tragedy three days ago where one of the staff of the yemen delegation was killed in ties and and today i cannot help but think about him his family and and wife and this you know explain is
8:13 pm
a stark reminder that working in yemen we made it extremely difficult we do it in the extremely difficult circumstances in because of. extremely. tense hard fighting taking place doing this work documenting the cases is something that takes a toll and sometimes takes a toll on the lives of our colleagues on a video of an israeli soldier shooting a palestinian has caused outrage that story much more when we come back you are watching r.t. international. eh
8:14 pm
eh. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. caught up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry suddenly i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave
8:15 pm
a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now as there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. join me every thursday on me all excited i'm sure when i was reading to get a feel of the world of sport i'm sure. i'll see you ben. welcome back this is our international live from moscow now the israeli human rights group bet to sell them has released a video showing a soldier cheering after shooting a palestinian with a rubber bullet in the west bank.
8:16 pm
i'm. on. the side of. that. we asked of the israeli defense forces to comment on the video and they replied saying that the behavior seen in the video is not what is expected of an i.d.f. soldier but they pointed out that the commander was heard instructing the soldiers to act professionally israeli military also said that appropriate action will be taken over the incident and the scandal follows three weeks of deadly unrest on the israel gaza border the files of people have been rallying a by the border fence each friday in a so-called march of return calling for the release of palestinian prisoners and more than forty palestinians including four children have been fatally shot by soldiers the israeli general has defended the use of live ammunition against people
8:17 pm
who try to breach of the border fence and attack soldiers he said that in such situations fatal incidents are sometimes unavoidable. to my great storage sometimes one shooter. and you intend to his arm or shoulder. pictures not a pretty picture that's the price that we have to pay to preserve the safety and quality of life of the residents of the state of israel and that's the price. when the israeli army accuses hamas which controls gaza using children to carry out acts of terrorism the i.d.f. released this picture appearing to show a group of boys trying to breach the israel gaza border fence and the israeli defense minister echoed that view he described mass as cowards use women and children as human shields however the head of the palestinian national initiative told us that the protesters on the border pose no threat to israel well it's something that i have seen myself during peaceful demonstrations israeli army uses
8:18 pm
lethal weapons against peaceful demonstrators would present north over to the soldiers and they are celebrating the fact that killing palestinians is very clear the i.d.f. do you have a case to answer here because of those civilian casualties as the un have said you have said what would you say to those that have said the parents of those children are responsible as the i.d.f. of said for bringing these miners very small children to a protest where violence is likely to happen with young people yes but everybody is part of this and with the men women and we've been advocating to hamas and to other groups to give to people not to use military force but to use peaceful nonviolent demonstrations for sixteen years we've been advocating nonviolence and today they accept our message nonviolent resistance and we want for the world to know the truth. in this country which is that claims to be a democracy why using force in this manner.
8:19 pm
the u.s. government is spending billions of dollars on bolstering its defenses in space and again as details. military defense hollywood style united states air force has opened its high ground of space for day to other nations other air forces who dream of making such a claim but what if their dream became a reality never expects something trust to turn against you. millions give you facts. airports infrastructure. so. skilled groups will compete and will win. the u.s. has unveiled its latest splurge in space with a plan to step up security on its satellites but not just its own those of its allies to the concern is that potential adverse stories may be capable of hacking
8:20 pm
or disabling the satellites we were getting hardware as we know is crucial to communication navigation and intelligence gathering all things that would be crucial in the advent of war and it's hope that by sharing this information with its allies that would deter any potential attacks but is just the tip of the iceberg because space warfare is the big defense trend right now which the new black don't take my word for it ask the u.s. top brass of the air force i cannot think of a military mission there's not depend on space russia and china are developing capabilities to disable our satellites as the u.s. deems ahead with its space odyssey it's pouring in billions and roping in the likes of space x. is a long muskrats proven he can not only deliver but he brings the goods fast but with john king of satellites is one thing the question now is how long will it be before we see actual physical attacks in space or some think is just
8:21 pm
a matter of time before american forces find themselves fighting from space were gone that's of whether this is the case or not one thing's for sure the u.s. is deterred. and to remain a leader in this field the curator of warfare has changed we in vision a constellation of nana satellites always the predator never the prey and one person on able to contain his excitement is the u.s. president space is a war fighting domain name just like the air and sea we may even have a space force develop another one space force the air force one of the space schools we have the army the navy now you might think there's no no war regulation on taking things a step too far in space but in fact there is almost a decade ago one hundred seventy eight countries voted on a u.n. resolution to prevent a space arms race only two countries abstained the u.s.
8:22 pm
and israel washington also blocked a joint russian chinese effort to ban all weapons in space so perhaps an inkling that the u.s. has long been planning on staking its claim to the stars. the german chancellor angela merkel has voiced concerns over a new wave of anti-semitism in europe since the start of the migrant crisis. noire we have a new phenomenon as we have many refuges among whom there are for example people of arab origin who bring in the other form of anti-semitism into the country unfortunately and to cynicism existed before that. the leader of the belgian league against anti-semitism told us the german chancellor needs to do more to tackle the problem. so i hope that some get a message to say it will be followed by deeds by this listen and not on a you know it's a republic to comment on the recent event it's not an issue for jews actually it's
8:23 pm
an issue for europe jews are the first target but when jews will fall to the older would follow more and more people will think that. they will be able to clear the play which is islam is what we which is the far right they should keep in mind you die of both jewish communities are facing a similar problem in france french politicians and prominent figures are now pushing for attitudes to change as a part of a manifesto against anti-semitism they signed a petition denouncing a quiet ethnic purging that is being driven by radical islam among the signatories former french president nicolas sarkozy and his wife carla bruni actor gerard depardieu and former prime minister minister excuse me manual valls we demand that the fight against this democratic failure that is anti semitism
8:24 pm
becomes a national cause before it's too late before france is no longer friends. france has the largest jewish community in europe with more than half a million people a recent study found that there was a twenty six percent increased in violent incidents against them during two thousand and seventeen and in many cases this is forcing people to leave france the president of the belgian league against anti-semitism again believes that we are seeing a worrying trend. but is very new in this article is that they go to the core of the problem speaking about some. verses some sort in the koran calling for a game jews and christian against the nonbelievers. to change this to make it actually to make it up so late that could be part of the solution it's not a fight between muslims and non muslims it's
8:25 pm
a fight between openness between tolerance on one side and on the other side you have darkness you are in toronto you have a. u.k. defense secretary has claimed his country needs to be to reassess the threat from russia we have to be realistic about the challenges the challenges that are posed by russia or are far greater than the challenges were presented as an insurgency in terms of iraq and afghanistan. the alleged russian threat top of the agenda at the g. seven meeting in canada officials described moscow's behavior as irresponsible and a destabilizing and the british foreign secretary call for more efforts against moscow but we decided was that we will going to set up a jew certain group that would look at russian malign behavior in all its manifestations whether it's cyber war whether it's this information assassination
8:26 pm
attempts whatever it happens to be and collectively try and call it out we asked the u.k. veteran of the war in afghanistan what he thought about the defense secretary's comments. greatest threat to britain security including one that is the current government so long that my qualification to speak to one operational with a british army in. standing twenty twelve there was only. truly scabby two of my military service and that was a criminal cult and so the british came out and now is a civilian you won't think that scares me. my government. the greatest threat to security a huge prosperity. for fifty days before the world cup kicks off in russia star studded team is traveling nationwide checking out the preparations for the biggest sporting event of the year this time legendary goalkeeper peter
