israel but how there now are things that was self-defense either way she doesn't have time to talk about every journalist who's been killed and apparently his death doesn't fit in with washington's agenda. r.t. new york. now on wednesday north korea did threaten to scupper highly anticipated talks between kim jong un and donald trump pyongyang is furious at the moment about ongoing joint military war games being conducted by washington and south korea. i i. i. i. i. i. there are exercises that are legal there are planned well well in advance we will continue to go ahead and plan the meeting between president jiang and while the drills do come at a time when pyongyang and soul are enjoying improved relations but north korea is also angry about remarks by top u.s.
officials saying that it could suffer the same fate as libya. takes a look now at how the last deal between pyongyang and washington were attacked. we all know what carrot and stick diplomacy is but these these goes beyond that way beyond their will get private capital that comes in north korea is desperately in need of energy support electricity for their people we can deliver that and as i said earlier this week we can create conditions for real economic prosperity for the north korean people that will rival that of the south talk about extremes not so long ago people were seriously talking about nuclear war those with a penchant for the dramatic really made the best of the opportunity north korea best not make it work threats to the united states. they will be met with fire fury. like the world has never seen well north koreans
must be sighing in relief instead of fire and fury they're now getting the carrot will they have to do is give up nukes nice let's just hope they have short memories so i think iran is on notice and they are going to have to make a choice are they willing to go down the path which i think ultimately will lead to greater prosperity and security for iran giving up. acquisition of nuclear weapons or will they continue down a path that is going to lead to confrontation or quit the radians gave up on nukes dismantle their program complied absolutely with every requirement in the end it didn't matter they gave up nukes and then america took back the whole the prosperity thing we'll see how we do with the rare probably we want to very well
with them but that's ok too they've got to understand. life because i don't think they do understand life when life gives you lemons make lemonade so long as trump doesn't take the lemons too regardless perhaps this time things will be different iran was a one off right wrong i am pleased that the united states and north korea yesterday reached agreement this agreement is good for the united states good for our allies and good for the safety of the entire world in one nine hundred ninety four bill clinton made a deal with north korea north korea could tells its nuclear program and the u.s. builds two nuclear reactors for it to compensate energy loss gives it a half a million tons of fuel per year and normalize relations they never built the nuclear reactors they never sent any fuel and they never signed an official peace
agreement you're seeing a pattern here right perspire it seems to be the carrot except what no one seems the realizes it's for dangling not for tasting that just life they've got to understand. life because i don't think they do understand life and i guess if that report you watch and we can hear or not he still had he this hour europe is hit back at the u.s. over iran's sanctions we'll have a look at how it's done that just after the break. we have to judge countries and leaders at the wreck. so we need more objective but the reality is. you know media tries to get the facts but also leave. their worldview so this is where social media and direct communication comes in
unfortunately it's sometimes called fake news or something but it's sometimes a different worldview just fake news. powerful people. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. to go on to be this is what before three of the more people. interested always in the water. again you watch in the weekly now the rift between the e.u. and the u.s. is deepening over the iran you can you deal with energy chief is around the block
remains committed to agreement the statement came during his first visit to iran since donald trump told washington. in the united states listen to a little from the joint chiefs. there was absolute loot you know i mean with a months because of the government that. will determine this agreement will stick to the commitments made and the disagreement looking at the latest officials of presidents try to see the thing. with growth that moves. in while france's finance minister has sensationally lashed out at the us for trying to be the world's economic quote policeman. came as the trumpet
ministration threatens to sanction the firms doing business with tehran is good news except we're going to the us is the planet's economic policeman do you accept one way domination with no respect for rules so obviously europe's response must clearly be molded well after america quit the iran nuclear deal and announce sanctions on tehran u.s. officials told allies to also fall into line the iran deal had lifted restrictions on terror and in exchange for a hold on its nuclear program on friday the european commission to launch a process to prevent firms from being hit by u.s. sanctions european firms would also be able to get compensation and loans if they are affected france's finance minister added that companies working with iran should keep going. we're going to do everything to protect french companies in iran because it's in our economic interest there are dozens of french companies who have
long fully invested in iran and doing business there and they must continue to have the right to do so. ok let's get the thoughts now as he's director of international finance solutions associates and he joins us now and you very welcome thanks for coming on firstly we just listening there to what europe hopes to do shareholder its companies from these sanctions being imposed by america but can they really do that much to protect these companies when we hear the likes of total for example saying look regardless we're going to have to pull out of iran. well of course is sort of illustration of a company which has interests both in the u.s. and the european. union being a french company but there are many companies that have no u.s. legs i know that washington has threatened and given an ultimatum of hundred eighty
days for companies to wind down in iran but as the french finance minister was quite rightly pointing out that over the last many years and particularly over the last three years since the nuclear deeds french companies have done tremendously while every other car in tehran seems to be a red or a page your core group opened two hotels just outside. port and over ten so french have huge exposure in iran similarly germany has been doing tremendous business there are many german banks particularly the provisional bangs which have no exposure to the new york market like brighton bank in others they have been for. transactions between iran german companies and other european countries at the end of the day what i think is
important is that you know we talk about sovereignty is europe going to have its economic sovereignty sovereignty is europe going to enjoy its political sovereignty is europe going to enjoy international status by having a sovereign voice rather than falling washington sure that's all very well should be but it's money that makes the world go round and if people are going to lose money they're just going to fall into line. well i think this is again a red herring what she is making a lot of noise that it would penalize companies there are lots of other options that are available to the european union we could straight away start if you like taxing many of the european and american companies that operate here for instance amazon they don't pay much tax as you know or starbuck. people are the
phrasebook you name it all the sort of. other sectors that are benefiting by paying no taxation perhaps we could legitimately tad's these companies in a discriminate free manner so that washington understands what's going on so i don't think this is a losing battle for the european union as such i he's to fear at the paranoia that is being created by the by be advisers to mr trump who are really in for a war with iran like mr bolton and mr pompei i suppose it does work both ways though doesn't it should be or mean we've heard from the e.u. there's a chance or a threat that they could actually start accepting euro's for iran's oil also paid for iran's oil with euros and not the petro dollar i mean that significantly could hurt america too. absolutely there are many options
open over the last ten year globally dollar was exchanged for over ninety percent of the transactions but in the last year or two it has come down to sixty percent as all of you well know that i am earth have now recognize your the chinese currency as one of the international currencies for exchange so slowly i think people are weaning themselves off the greenback as the currency of desire and of the european union with the euro takes that move forward then i think we could see a lot of interesting changes occurring as far as the prospects of dollar not really become not really sort of being that important in the global trade ok should be a we're going to have to leave it there we've run out of time but it's a really nice to talk to the. rector of international finance lucian's associates
in the u.k. thank you. in other news this week a bridge linking mainland russia to the crimean peninsula was officially opened on chiefs say the longest bridge in europe will reduce the region's reliance on sea and air transport and also allow more tourists to visit crimea has been a popular summer destination for russians for more than a century. was .
so a massive project them but actually the first to use it was this cat which does live in the area it's his. social media account so you wear this video was posted and now enjoy the following and the russian president was saying to follow in their use footsteps by that cat. well you can live with. that i mean drive across the nineteen coleman to preach in a command truck passing from the mainland to be crummy. team the construction
workers that joined him in the right however not everybody is happy about this new bridge an article in the washington examiner suggested that should blow it up the rights or even went into detail about how this could actually be done but little commentator john bolton each believes the article goes beyond acceptable free speech it's par for the course the people who pose as journalists in washington are nothing more then weaponized lobbyists and so when a lobbying firm attempts to get its bills or its or its funding through for new weapons systems or war systems they often call on one of their engaged journalists to do the dirty work of saying something publicly that they couldn't dare say and then using the right of freedom of speech in america the journalist can call for anything it wants murder execution bombing attacks on civilian bridges and so on so that's what this is and if we're talking about a new level yes we've hit a new low
a new low outward call by a journalist so-called journalist for an attack on a civilian structure you can watch and we can hear and see we'll have more news for you and thirty five minutes. when lawmakers manufactured them sentenced to public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. with the final merry go round to be the one percent. time
to ignore middle of the room signals. the real news is. for a world cup twenty eight team coverage we've signed one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but there was one more question and by the way who's going to be our coach. guys i know you are nervous he's a huge star among us and the huge amount of pressure you have to go i mean eighty percent of the beach but always will and will solo a great game the great game you are the rock at the back nobody gets past you we need you to get the doll going let's go. a low as i want to you know and i'm really happy to join the to team for the two thousand and three and world cup in russia meet the special one it was all to appreciate me to just say to redo the audi team's latest edition to make up
a bigger certainly better jersey book. it was in the one nine hundred fifty s. that our secretary of state john foster dulles proclaimed our policy is global. we started as a continental empire by clearing out the native peoples and other foreign forces then we became an overseas empire by taking islands in various parts of the world and then after the second world war we began
a new. global empire they're all we are playing on the whole billiard. denied states has always had a variety of tools to use in its attacks on other countries. economic sanctions or are often just the beginning another thing you like to do is place some military pressure on the countries a true talking around. and there has to be an effort to demonize that country and
the leader of that country particularly in our own caress and in the press of that leader's own country. americans love to think there were intervening in other countries to overthrow evil people and if that's true you have to make the person look evil. in nineteen fifty one options came to power in guatemala after being a looked at by the people in washington the us president received. the use of us. years ago i wrote a book about how the united states overthrew the government of quote a moloch in nineteen fifty four. the case of guatemala is a great example of american call for action during the period of the one nine hundred fifty s. when covert action was at a peak. the country lost its legitimate government and hundreds of people lost
at this time a giant american company the united fruit company owned huge amounts of lending water amala. and much of that land they were not using was just being held vacant while many guatemalans are starving because they didn't have the land to grow food. enough. down enough and in order that i. should. no miss no one month and i didn't know when. and get those little of the requests. i don't know what to get. yeah of all of
them to come as you know but going to get the end of. that and now in atlanta. and it's going up and. so president arbenz a league watermelon government decreed a land reform program this land reform program would have forced the united fruit company to sell its own used land so it could be divided up and given to poor families the united fruit company was very unhappy with this they went to the united states government the u.s. government then concluded that these socialist orientation of guatemala was dangerous to the united states. there was the. same in three hundred go. up
dramatically in part become in. her purse you can you can we want to put your foot over your i won't go to you because we're not. going to come in front of him again and i get a one hundred line. later civil war broke out something like two hundred thousand people were killed in that conflict over more than thirty years. when is it being able. to go. and. you know who's the law don't it sam i want to be near. yeah let me come up with something.
but i'm here for my go. see if you are you scared off with amanda so soon they squeal they did have to milk this idiom. for the course of their never count them out of him out of. the circle moisten though those who won. the race will see impacts you still feel the words you steal our people i will spoil the story. then there. is.
so the first one is. that. the government that we don't like shows bad faith by bothering an american company . then we convince ourselves that that company is our geopolitical enemy. and we sell the intervention. as a humanitarian intervention we only do it to help them we don't do anything for ourselves in fact we sacrifice ourselves. for the good of others.
american involvement in the overthrow of the government of libya the government of omar khadafi was a number of variable then call it a number of impulses in the american interventionist spirit. as matt. was in saudi when i knew not the could be and had then walked and if it had that much time i don't really. have. and now he attained just a few to fuck up. a sea assia. to mess it all off. medina to because he will from the innocent will be no american will come
in and look on at the men and the house and at the husband then he. would move me assets to a bank and be in the middle of the field both had their good but that no one with a wayne woman in them and you should let them be a libby. live . we thought of him as a bad leader one we couldn't control now he looked like he might be about to carry out all human rights atrocity so we decided it was time to participate in an
operation to overthrow gadhafi and in that operation of course he was killed. so we succeeded in the short term goal get rid of gadhafi deposed that government but then what happened we didn't have a plan for what was going to come next we thought that maybe by magic some new peaceful regime would urge everybody would cooperate and things together. says. this is a very. hit
