i used to say and many others observers said well sooner or later north koreans probably will see it and start talking but they're going to extract a lot of every scene from the united states all parties now it seems that the. major condition is just to make sure that americans will not start shooting second to have some of their recent socials lifted as soon as possible before it will strike the economy and they're not going to port much more demands for the time being now professor link of there is a lot of discussion in the united states especially among those who do not support the idea of the presidential summit that it would be encouraging and north korea for its bad behavior but i think the relevant question here is also whether it would encourage trump for his bad behavior because you mentioned that he's policy of essentially blackmail has worked so far if that summit indeed takes place.
wouldn't that make bellicosity on their merit comply more acceptable form of foreign policy i know that for the time being both russia and china are endorsing the idea of the meeting between kim and tran but i suppose they would be just as happy to have trump threatened in the same manner of us there might cheer up to russia and china has much more force in march war they're much more capable or biting back and nobody would create a czar russia would share in such a race or oh yes it's a kind of a bad example but let's face it nor scotti else for the same blackmail tactics for me it's a bit funny to see how the same prefix it is for decades have been favorable to use of kenya and now use this as same efficiency. isn't it funny to see when basically you're not trump. try to outdo him jonah himself it's
a bit for funny all this fayyad funi and all the stuff i don't think is going to be applied on a scale to any c.d.'s op an ant and mosque idea is their job but they'd say basically steal as a small and very poor company well sadly nobody likes to get a taste of his or her own medicine professor lengel we have to take a very short break now but we will be back in just a few moments stay tuned. for. palm
oil is one of the most controversial products about sun it's a salted vegetable fat that's very cheap. twenty seventeen production grew to sixty three million tons that rapid growth in international demand for cheap oil has led to the massive expansions of plantations which is the destruction of rain forest. get into the zero a lot more than ten million hiked as of unique rain forest has been destroyed but it's a process that just keeps going. put
in lives by two things by his emotion and he is. in the long term he places a very long he uses so to speak. of long distance rather than politics and that's the way the underestimates. welcome back to worlds apart return to the line called professor at the university insults not wrestling on just before the break you commanded donald trump on the success at least initial success of his blackmail tactics. but the news of the last few moments and we are recording this show on tuesday is that donald trump decided
to fire his chief diplomat secretary of state to track still or send a question to you is why the donald trump at this point of time has the team to capitalize on this initial diplomatic game he actually have. negotiators do diplomats who would take this initial success and develop it into something more concrete of well when you're shooting is going to be a tough this is a major program because it's an open secret that president trump despises his diplomats and well i would say is if it is a largely. kate it is therefore or will last say a year or so a lot of highly skilled people have left the state department and essentially and now they don't have a single person who has experience of negotiating with his and. most people in the state department that he and i knew commerce it's
a big problem how well they're going to develop. it's a great strategic success the it's admitted it was a strategic success it she of by presidents diplomacy i am a bit skeptical because mosconi else are very good very tough negotiators they don't change their teams for years for many years to come some of people have been negotiating visit americans for twenty years and this people more all the big points and probably will take advantage of it so well it's probably good news because if everything because becomes a mess it will be bad news not only for the united states not only for more scary it will be bad news for sellers carrier for chan and of course for for your ocean now you mention both russia and china and i think up until recently at least both of them have expressed cautious endorsement of this initiative for you know that moscow has even gone as far as to suggest that this summit may take place in moscow
died off i think was downplayed later on in the kremlin but i think it's still on the table do you think there is any chance of either russia or china stepping into the void and how being the charm for ministration to secure these deal for the benefit of global security i'm very i'm we have to tread very carefully here not to invite any accusations of collusion but at the end of the day i think we would all agree that you know the peace on the korean peninsula is in the best interest of humanity isn't it not only humanity home energy is something abstract but they have argued just a few minutes ago. in korean peninsula is an interest of russia because russian interests and for basically cheney a centrist a very simple cost russia warms. second russia of one's status quo sought russia of once didn't carry. if mr trump if president did
mean business eva. he was really going to deliver a strike against last year m.s.e. war not their city yukio but a mess of war was the most likely outcome therefore any kind of reduction in tension is a good news for russia however talking about a possible negotiation for moscow well until recently it would be a good idea to have laws sells kadian summit or say assignments be to be in north korean leaders and u.s. president or western leaders it would be a good idea to have them in russia maybe there's a city in moscow where you are still because of on the full seated to the you can be sure or maybe in my native petersburg why not maybe not moscow but not now. said truth is right now russian issue is very big in the united states probably it has never been the case that russia attracted so much of the favorable attention well since maybe as a nine hundred fifty years since there anticommunist fear and
a communist scare saw it to be probably a good idea if russia is too much involved in this negotiations not now in the long run yes but now it's probably safer to just avoid maybe. to sort out the situation because well sometimes russia would be happy to see americans in trouble but in kerry is such troubles very easy can develop into russia or trouble there is an actual commitment from kim jong un to having this summit with south korean leader president. in the next month and if that happens that would also be i suppose a major breakthrough the third such summit in history. who do you think has more at stake at this meeting and do you see it as a stepping stone towards meeting with trump or does it have a value in and of itself a larger step in store because surprise india. is
a very pro american. country humans are by the tickle forces which used to be entier american of the past like say supporters of the current president they are much much more favorable about the united states now beach however does not mean that they like a bicycle or s president however mount a less inspired of all this right now not scary and. in the same boat because in the long run as nuclear votes constitute a mess of denture for the soul scary and by it's for maybe in the long run may be the end when we are talking decades right now their major threat south korea faces is a threat or a military operation initiated by the united states easily escalate into of war and if we have a war it will be lost and so i was scared eons who are going to die in large numbers so right now the an interest is to reduce tensions do i understand you
correctly that you're essentially suggesting that south korea feels donald trump a little bit more than it fears came to an on yes as an immediate threat yes it's a tactical threat it's a long run of course kim jong il is a problem for south koreans but in the short iran it was probably mr trump so what i see is that they're basically playing together more than just reduce the tension to create the impression of there are now more scary and ready to talk and there are ready to make concessions and they are indeed actually ready to talk and indeed are ready to make concessions talking about the north south korean summit unfortunately cells kerry and president has very little freedom of action it can not the problem is any kind of economic assistance to last year because such assistance would be a violation not only of the u.s. borders see but all of the internationally approved sanctions it's not in position
to talk about. the military should because it's going to be a blog by the united states as well and of course everything related to the nuclear problem is exclusively exclusively an area. of the exclusive american interest so basically if they can smile discuss the quality of meat and barbecue or maybe approve some kind of nice cultural exchanges you know. kind of under fire and you know all of this go in here they can not discuss anything serious so it's a lychee if you will be a stepping stone to this summit be to be in trump and team sign me to be sure you really can or pass for future negotiations and ration and it changes between. having said that i think what it least i find very fascinating is this new
role the south koreans found themselves in because they're essentially now acting as messengers been pyongyang and washington rather than you know being a separate party to the conflict and i think that's that's a very interesting development i don't think we've ever had. south korean officials communicating to the americans what the north koreans want do you see any do you see that as a positive development for the careen negotiations because i suppose that when you act as a not a necessarily as a mediator but at least as a go between in the your optics shift a little bit and i think you you try to prepare the base for a compromise a little bit more than the you would if you were acting in your own capacity dawn forty they would try really hard to prepare a base for compromise because if shooting starts it really is a subtle study as we're going to die in large numbers including a lot of people in the top political idiot so they're working hard on board and
talking about their role of digits in did this surprise. zing and it's also unnecessary because bourse north koreans and the americans perfectly kept about or for negotiating the things themselves and contrary to what most people suspect this kind of claim to stein on the fischel see could cut channels of communication between. have always been at the racial of what i'm seeing they not only count talk they have been talking for all this time and the decision to include last year . is largely done because first of all. diplomats want to use the two drives of h. and united states and they also want to create sort of if you like it's front business hours kadian government because for the time being as they have set for bourse north korea and possible the media theater ration by the americans can see
a greater threat then as said it. was the war between themselves which is not going to happen anytime soon. so they want to sort of you united front and i merit comes all civil bleich to give some kind of good to make some gestures to emphasize the significance of the cells carry that's to shore that basically it's normally about playing some games behind their back but professor link i think it was reported in the new york times just there the other day that. south korean officials are searching not only as mass injures between pyongyang and washington but the sensually. americans are making them play the role of spokespeople because at the end of the day if it was a south korean official who announced the willingness to negotiate with with it with the north is that a form of had risks on the part of the trump ministration or simply he's a whole lot of knowledge about how the diplomatic niceties are supposed to work out
because i think it's also pretty. president had to have a north korean official to communicate the will of the american president to the world naser it's exactly what they have just set. are valuable now for the americans and american administration and maybe american diplomacy to emphasize their significance and this is why such an unprecedented measure was taking basically americans sending a signal to saul you are a part of that team you're probably abject you really can do very little by the take you very seriously and you're going to give you a lot of extra rights because your part of the team and basically ignore scotty and also sending a somewhat similar signal look the boss i afraid of this strange guy is the vital house is in our joint interest to reduce the tension for the time being maybe in
twenty years there was a threat we are going to fight one another and that changed nuclear strikes because got balls so i was going to can easily go nuclear eventually but for the time being a major problem is across all show let's act well professor lying cause i guess you can find a silver lining even in the darkest cloud and if trump's unpredictability provides for this bonding experience between the two koreas so be it anyway we have to leave it there i really appreciate your being on the show today and to our viewers please keep the conversation going in our social media pages as for me hope to see you again same place same time here under worlds apart.

a. drug that i was sick the week of anti israeli protests along the gaza border brings the palestinian death toll to nearly fifty people thousands more remain wounded. the israeli prime minister accuses iran of secretly trying to expound its nuclear program we take a look at whether donald trump is buying into the p.m.'s dramatic speech ahead of deadline day to drop the twenty fifteen nuclear deal. and the may day rallies may take clashes between police and demonstrators in several countries and the french capital more than two hundred people were arrested. the middle class is now starting to be the police ordered to look out but you'll see the chief guest coming up to us the police move again and that's because just behind us there is a lot of going on.
a very good morning to you from all of our team here in moscow you're watching the weekly and around the pool the latest news on the big stories that have shaped the week. now this week has seen some major developments in the ongoing investigation into the script poisoning case and nato ally admitted it had produced a lot which talk like substance as recently as last year and then the un's chemical watchdog backtracked on whether on previous claims about the nerve agent. picks up the story criminal investigations usually work towards conclusions as new information and facts come to light but with the screwball case it all seems a bit backwards and feels like those pesky details are being ignored take for example the embarrassing but significant slip up we heard this week from the chief of the international chemical weapons watchdog the research activities or protection you would need for instance five to ten grams of but even in seoul is
free it looks like they may have used more than that without knowing the exact quantity i'm told it may be fifty one hundred grams of say which goes beyond research activities for protection but the idea that such a large amount having been found suggests that it had been created as a weapon and not for research purposes is important from the get go the u.k. claims that never talk soviet origins were clear evidence that russia was the guilty party at the same time moscow argued that other states have the ability to create another truck and have experimented with doing just that so the suggestion that such a large amount wouldn't be found in research situations just adds to that idea that there is no other plausible alternative but that russia is behind the attack there is just one tiny problem with all of that. the o.p.c. w. would not be able to estimate all determine the amount of the nerve agent that was used in souls bree on the fourth of march twenty eighth the quantity should probably be characterized in milligrams but that whiplash inducing you turn has no one's convictions that russia did it even when combined with an announcement coming
from the czech president who was produced and tested in the czech republic it was a small quantity that we know when and we know where it was done it would be hypocritical to pretend that such a thing never happened so there you have it and then mission from at least one country saying that yeah they have produced and experimented with know each of class agents delivering a blow to a key element of the u.k.'s case no more can it be claimed that the substance could've only come from russia right wrong that two didn't dent the narrative the media gave almost no attention to the announcement and those who did cover it pointed out what they called siemens pro russia stance because let's face it in today's climate being pro russia means you're on reliable something else we saw this week was the u.k. national security adviser disclosing the fact that no suspects have been identified and the poisoning but given the fact that the case seems to be based on the assumption of guilty until proven innocent many outlets ran that statement alongside the line that police were urgently reviewing the security of other
defective russian spies in the country once again implying moscow's guilt despite a lack of even one suspect after two months and while clearly none of these details are enough to prove russia's innocence at the same time nothing we've seen or heard up till now is enough to prove its guilt either russia says the weather revelation made by the czech president undermines london's case but in a statement to r.t. the british foreign office repeated its claims that only russia has the technical means operational experience and motive to target a school pals we had from a former u.k. intelligence office that under global affairs expert. it really does blow the whole british american thesis out of the water the british american thesis was that nobody bar of the russians could have produced i mean the formula had been published in the united states already some years ago and now if. what the czechs
are saying today to be correct then it really has exploded the entire british american thesis i'm sure many of the or stylish when we first saw this interview appeared with the chief of the. one can look at that and say well ok it's very easy probably to make a mistake in the middle of an interview and say grams when in fact you meant milligrams but that is actually contradicted by what the i.p.c.c. serves have said make sure what was the reasoning behind the chief actually saying something that appears to be not just a mistake but at least officially untrue so it was grasped upon by headlines in the west that said that this was further proof that such a huge substance i see huge amount could only come from a state of course to bolster their case that this might be russia. palestinians have been continuing that anti occupation rallies along the gaza border over the course of the past week the area has been engulfed in black smoke from burning
this a sniper is take it to the family take a look at the tape the make life at least in the family think it stuck to the heart and to the medicate he's going to see that it's ok cypress i take it think about it in protest seriously. damaged it's internists. clear. cut. it. could always during my football career i hope to be one of the best players in cause after this injury my football career is over these really response with life far snipers shot me and it was nice looking at it live. and people are actually crossing a fence and think it's really territory and how right you sit on the slow friday of
swords to carry out her arrest if there has been you know from the high concluding of crossing you know from border without authorization by. using my. right using intentional force is. minor sponsored by far and that's not what's happening. it's difficult to see how time burning in stone throwing. or even more for cocktails thrown from a significant distance that heavily protected security forces in defensive positions. can be seen to constitute.
meanwhile the israeli prime minister appears to be intensifying efforts to convince donald trump to drop the iran nuclear deal in a dramatic power point presentation this week benjamin netanyahu claimed to wrong and lied about its nuclear ambitions and his revelations came just days before the us president will decide whether to scrap the agreement they're trying to bamboozle the entire world and i am very glad that president trying because well enough of that we're not going to be hoodwinked we're not going to be taken for a ride we're going to have to do a serious serious change year to make sure that iran does not have nuclear weapons that means this deal was a terrible deal why give this speech in english and do it in such a big way well because i wanted the world to hear all of it while b.b. may claim he's trying to convince the world that really isn't true the only person he needs to convince is try.
