i know you. as the leader of north korea place host to russia's foreign minister r t's the only international channel allowed to follow the delegation to kim jong un the palace i can barely remember being given such access at other v.i.p.'s locations around the world and given the fact that we're inside the residence of the north korean leader kim china i'm absolutely shocked. this morning it's least two main euro skeptic parties funny form a coalition government giving rise though to fears of a major shift in europe's political landscape over it. raises the alarm over an escalation of fighting in the libyan city of dirt and as the french president pushes for talks between ruling factions inside libya. and. despite prospects of a trade war the u.s. goes ahead nonetheless and imposes hefty tariffs on aluminum and steel imports from
the e.u. and other trading plan. here in moscow this friday the first very good morning and welcome to this latest news update from r.t. international with me here in the hot seat this morning first that america's top diplomat. has concluded a second day of meetings with north korean officials in new york a peace summit between the two countries is expected later this month those talks took place too as russia's foreign minister met the leader of north korea in the country's capital pyongyang our correspondent has been following those events and was granted exclusive access indeed to one of kim jong un's residences. we were told to leave most of our belongings and all our mobile device. behind and
now they're taking us somewhere. so we're here in this fandom just to keep our men one photographer and myself rolling a lot of state in. this area is completely deserted and it looks like we're in circling something that appears to be the powers. that be if only someone told me where exactly we are right now but we are being told to fall this man. i don't really know what exactly this place this but it looks to be the area where it came john will be greeting certainly loughborough of and the reason why i think so is because just through this door i saw came john in sr and she was having some sort of conversation with the guards but nobody speaks english here hello.
and as far as i understand this is circular limo. i believe this is a bit of a historic moment we still don't know whether the kemp from meeting is going to happen but at least sergei lavrov is here having direct talks with the supreme leader of north korea. sergey lavrov and kim john thune are talking behind a small we were asked to wait in this room so let's just have a walk around and take a look at what they have to offer a. dark north. i can tell you that it tastes just like any other.
anywhere around the world. so this is how suddenly you get treated to cranberry juice rooms residents. i can barely remember being given such. a location is around the world we were just . at the present which is just outside the doors. of the city. and given the fact that we're inside the residence of the north korean leader kim jong un again i'm just going to say i'm absolutely shocked. and. it is really disappointing that we won't be able to find out exactly what's being said behind these stories but just a few hours before mr kim and mr lavrov met the russian foreign minister in making
the korean peninsula free of nuclear weapons is a very delicate issue maintains that the interests of all sides must be respected. so that said it all ended with. russia see whether the north korean leader will accept the invitation for now we're heading back to the airport in the russian foreign minister's motorcade. go right. to several attempts at talian coalition parties of. western europe's first euro skeptic and he established government it's about to take power after months of political turmoil in that country. wisin politics does it become tell you will be
sworn in as prime minister later friday along with his new cabinet one of the coalition leaders who promised to expel thousands of migrants will head the interior ministry meantime the new head of the labor ministry has plans for basic income for struggling citizens in italy and paolo's of on another face look out for his service affairs minister after his nomination as finance minister was rejected for being too euro skeptic while italy's new government has managed to end the stalemate then spain is now braced for a political shake up meantime we'll tell you about the country's prime minister mariano rajoy faces losing his job a motion of no confidence has been filed by the main opposition socialist party it's now possible then that it will replace the prime minister with its own leader a majority already but the move the move was prompted by a long running corruption scandal the prime minister is also faced pressure over his handling of the catalonian independence referendum professor of appearance studies thomas harrington thinks that these crosses show deep discontent in europe
now especially in the south. these oscillations and again i'm not a columnist but these are solutions take place for a reason there is a lot of unsettled. thinking going on and a lot of unsettled feeling in the european union and yet what i think is consistently missing is a deep conversation while there is so much discontent i think is a very strong tendency to want to point fingers but there is very little tendency to have profound discussions about how the e.u. might have gone wrong or how the right constructive work durable model going forward for the political existence will to the solutions. after months of perspiring and threats of a trade war donald trump has slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum imports the e.u. as well as canada or mexico vowed to retaliate now our correspondents in london and washington of the latest reaction from both sides of the atlantic. the tariffs will
reportedly threatened seven point four billion dollars worth of european exports to the u.s. and what's interesting about this is that wilbur ross u.s. secretary for commerce maybe announcement just hours after meeting with the french finance minister where they apparently discussed the matter amicably but the domestic reactions have been mixed establishment democrats and republicans strongly oppose the move but trade unions in the u.s. applauded trump's move but in his announcement to downplay the terror it's providing at least some assurance that they won't negatively affect relations with the e.u. bruiser buller. groom. very. good over the course we'll look at the reaction that we've got from europe what could this mean for the european union you may aswell we've had the u.k. government responding with pure disappointment at the reaction for this decision in
the e.u. . they're not happy either this could reportedly affect seven point four billion euros worth of european exports to the u.s. understandably there's a little bit of outrage going on there the most affected could be the automobile industry and that would mean germany would be hit that the hardest if that's the case because they are the powerhouse of course of the of that sector now the president of the european commission john claude younker he has called this decision a horrible day for trade. except that it come to push you to look for measures when it comes to. create. has also put the matter to the world trade organization because they are responsible for settling trade disputes and settlements of course i mentioned germany before will they have reacted to the news the german far. minister has also
slammed the decision calling it illegal he's vowing a united response saying our answer to america first can only be europe united the french president emanuel micron has also slammed the decision you can never do it and i think what it is it you people want you want honesty and all you can. do the people the men yeah you did you don't the office on the mr nice meeting you can answer this you need to be going to meet him in it again we've previously heard from brussels they've promised to retaliate to america's protectionist steps with its own twenty five percent terrorists on various produce including motorcycles jeans cigarettes cranberry juice and peanut butter again. so now we will also impose import tariffs this is basically stupid process the fact that we have to do this but we have to do it we will now impose tariffs on harley
davidson motorcycles on levis blue jeans and bore but we can also do stupid we also have to be this stupid so the next question is of course how will trump reactive counter measures are enforced well he's already threatened to respond to any e.u. trade barriers by saying that he will put tax on cars produced by european auto makers so you can see there's a huge verbal tit for tat going on it will depend on whether the can forget forgive and indeed to live with these new measures correspondent london there to the wall street analyst michael hudson believes the u.s. could actually suffer more than europe from these tariffs. done by putting the tariff on aluminum and steel is to raise the price of aluminum and steel to americans they've already from twenty five percent or resupply is going to be sold to europeans and asians so that there are many of them. more cheaply
to make manufactured goods much lower cost than american manufacturers can do so trump has given europe and asia an opportunity to undersell american manufacturers of. anything industrial. the u.n. humanitarian office has reported on civilian suffering in libya it says there's been an unprecedented escalation in fighting in the coastal city of durban or in the past week alone at least five civilians have been killed two of them children clashes and air raids have also cut electricity and water supplies to over one hundred thousand people this u.n. report comes as the french president's been pushing for negotiations between the country's warring parties our senior correspondent more gadgety of his more on what role france wants to play in libya the french president mr mcauliffe has a certain brand he sells himself as a bit of a peacemaker his latest effort
a libyan peace summit bringing together key need is some of whom are war with each other back on was proud to sit upon you for the first time these libyan leaders under this format some of whom do not mutually recognize each other's positions of the men together to work together and approved a joint declaration of you this is an essential important step and which makes what will come next possible but. you'd think in reality there are a lot of handshakes forced smiles and photo ops when it came to actually making peace they signed nothing any agreement they had was verbal in diplomacy that means nothing or over but everyone joined in more than a dozen groups and organizations who signed the letter saying that this summit did not represent them. we call for
a real dialogue focused on the aspirations of libyan society in its aspects nevertheless pundits macron hailed it as a breakthrough after all getting all these people together under the same roof was an achievement not so much the main act as were there in july last year at this same summit also hosted by my. requires. the courage that is yours today by being here and by agreeing to this joint declaration is historic is to take your risk despite things that could have been against despite the actions of others to work towards a process of national reconciliation and long term peace. and nothing changed but maintaining the brand takes effort backgrounds really try. the libyan people aspire to safety stability and to live better to be able to express
their sovereignty yes about safety and stability than are a coastal city in libya has been under siege for almost a year now and it's only gotten worse yes collation of fighting there has reached unprecedented levels once the un the libyan national army led by general have who was at summit is trying to take the city from a local warlord and islamists it's been a tough battle. on this happy occasion we say that zero hour for durness city liberation has come. local sources report the protection forces a currently taking positions amongst civilian infrastructure in residential areas mostly in the center of the city and reportedly in civilian clothing since twenty second me there has been a rising civilian casualty toll as a result of indiscriminate shelling of. residential areas in general have towers
arch rival hallooed island mystery was also at micron's gathering he urged for an immediate cease fire and two could jab at the general i don't recognise the chief commander named hof star he said that the very same day the four libyans pledged to work constructively in paris no surprise that the thing was signed merely an dorst question is who is going to remember this indorsement and for how long to point face what use a small or come the french government to resettle thousands of migrants in paris some are now even neighbors of former french president nicolas sarkozy will tell you more about that after this break. we see that the more and more people even more and more political leaders
understand that letting you know that these migratory influx is a two year old definitely does not serve to target the about the future of the european union. italy's recent elections again demonstrate the e.u. smeal liberal agenda is under continued pressure even under threat where's his grand historic project going how should we understand the italian elections the german elections and drags it in politics. chose seemed wrong. just don't call. me. yet to shape out this day becomes active. and engaged equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
eighteen minutes past eight moscow time rolling out next on the revival of roseanne one of america's most popular sitcoms has been scrapped because of a tweet by the show's leading actress. he goes down a flux of how an inflammatory comment coming they destroy years of work for some at least. it's been a long time since a broadcast t.v. show also ratings matching those of the reboot of roseanne the sitcom revived just this march after more than two decades hiatus was watched by a scene million people and destroyed by one tweet aimed at a former advisor to barack obama valerie jarrett muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby that would be valerie jarrett rose and apologized calling herself an idiot
and saying that really wasn't her sleep medication talking that was one racist pill if so but borderline humor often on the subject of race has long been part of bars repertoire the first nine seasons of roseanne featured many jokes very close to the line black people are just like they're every bit as good as any people who don't think so just a bunch of banjo picking constantly barefoot and sad stories like trash like god but what finally did was of course the tweet i mean come on you can word a masterpiece of an apology. i made a mistake i wish i hadn't but don't defend it please i'm not a racist i never was and i never will be one stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting for civil rights for all minorities at the expense of my nervous system family will never be taken from me but comparing a black person to an ape there's just no coming back from this what she said was
blatantly patently the definition of race as we're seeing with tweeting something that listen to those of us if you're in public like you hear this slur a lot it's something that black people unfortunately deal with and have a long time a.b.c. stepped up did the right thing even if you may have these biases you can't act on it in the corporate space but amid a cross the board condemnation some t.v. personalities try to live down the mistakes of their own past this summer send d.c. anchor you've just watched has a history of being homophobic and plain offensive online she herself tried to mend her reputation with a mix of apologies as someone who is not a member of the elegy beauty community i regret the way address the complex issue of the closet and speculation on a person's sexual orientation with a mocking tone and sarcasm it was insensitive tone deaf and dumb i hope that whoever corrupted the site recognizes the pain they have cost not just to me but to
my family and communities that i care deeply about and eventually the channel two can know our action against. m s n b c asks him battled m.s. n.b.c. host joy read about the roseanne controversy what do you have to do on social media to get fired from a top rated show on an american broadcast network reed blames trump. like alec baldwin keith olbermann and others roseanne barr has a history of offensive outrageous bad grab crazy statements the left ignored but the moment she was seen as pro trump it became troubling. reed could be the only liberal voice to get away with overboard jokes except she's not the corporation does not really find any problem with her people have questionable paris but roseanne came in i think they really didn't want her to be on television anyway because of the protests from message the c.e.o. of disney bob iger had been rumored to be trying to be the president it's only
twenty eight years a big time never childbirth so as soon as roseanne say it was he said what does bob iger do he calls valerie jarrett personally to apologize he would like to not have anything that is pro-choice or in his networks because that interfere with his own personal thing and his own ideology we can all agree that racism should be stamped out but shouldn't punishment be in escapable no matter what side of the political spectrum you belong to. thousands of migrants from paris of being cleared from their makeshift shelters along the city's canals roughly two hundred of them have been resettled in a wealthy district in the french capital now showed went out to find what the residents thought about their new neighbors that. this is one of the nearly wrecked it camps in paris it's been set up to shelter around one hundred and seventy migrants who are amongst the thousand or so who are cleared from the canals of
paris doing side raids thousands of migrants have been camped along the canals for many many months living in squalid conditions which seemed to know. the mayor of paris and the interior minister who had been embroiled in a war of words over who is responsible for clearing the camps. the situation will be repeated indefinitely if measures not taken by local authorities to prevent the camps from reappear. in the battle we could have avoided waiting for months to find shelter for those people the suggestion i made to the state was to build and reform a welcome center which is really the only the only option possible if we want to avoid the roadside camps so i'm waiting for the states to get back to me on that. now these migrants are being housed in blood to play knowing one of paris's
wealthiest areas the sixteenth up on the small it's also home to former president nicholas sarkozy p.s. g.'s back to post football stadium and horse which is currently hosting tennis stars from across the globe for the french open some locals on top of the moon about their new neighbors i think the people here are not very. pretty to see as people are here because they are afraid afraid to some some of the most be very difficult and some of say very very nice i'm sure but a really tough part of them may be but. you never know how people can react you can have some people who react very badly and some good you never know. by thirty is choose not to most hospitable area because it is populated by many old people who are not really open minded so i think that this area is not the most
welcoming would you put us down i don't see any changes we don't communicate as migrants because we don't see them at all in the area so i guess gillies autonomous lee this is now the thirty fourth time in three years that my quince have been moved in paris but the problem seems to be cyclic it's never ending. but. oh. oh oh oh oh authorities it do to continue to clear out of the camps that emerged along paris. these canals in the next few days yet with the capital already overflowing and an estimated five hundred fifty extra my quince arriving every week this seems to be little if thought can do to keep a lid on the problem even ski r.t. paris. football fever spread it was just two weeks now of course to go to the
biggest event in the game anticipation proven hard to contain for the world cup in russia it's even gone into orbit. a lot more about to come thanks for watching this friday morning here in moscow it's coming up to eight twenty seven am but with more top stories in just about thirty minutes time keep r.t. biocide as well with our great mobile app good morning.

braben fire diplomacy the u.s. and north korea are still trying to hammer out even the most basic parameters of the proposed two hundred twelve meeting in singapore is this any way to run a summit that's where we'll start on this edition of. the politicking on larry king this week and aid to the north korean president arrived in the united states for talks aimed at salvaging the summit between kim jong un and donald trump a summit that originally from was to rid north korea of its nuclear weapons program but which has since been canceled rescheduled and now exists somewhere between maybe and probable with so little time left before the meeting in singapore can
both sides come to an agreement and salvage what could be a historic summit let's talk about that with joel rubin who served as deputy assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs in the obama administration and he's current. strategy group he joins us from the lake charles capital and toll according to u.s. intelligence reports the u.s. community has concluded that north korea does not intend to give up its nuclear weapons any time soon where we stand on the summit. well there it's great to be with you and nobody really knows where we stand with the summit queerly there ongoing preparations for the possibility of a summit but the current moment says no summit and the president seems to be very concerned that he's not going to get clear outcomes from a summit that he could then bring back home and say look i have achieved tangible results and that wouldn't be
a surprise the united states north korea had decades of diplomacy in fits and starts has been very difficult but the president has sort of jumped into this quickly without a real plan and we're seeing the hazards of that approach right now before our eyes the intel community has reportedly cautioned the white house that a more realistic objective would be convincing kim to want back recent progress on the country's nuclear weapons program. what do you expect that's right kim has in many ways the upper hand in these negotiations he has a nuclear arsenal he has the methods in the means to deliver warheads and has tested missiles that could carry such warheads to japan to south korea potentially to the united states so to get him to give those up to dismantle them verifiably that's a very tall order it's not going to happen in one single meeting.
