in the week's top stories the leader of north korea hosts a meeting with russia's foreign minister was the only international. policy for the event. someone told me where exactly we are right now this is how suddenly you get treated to. kim jong il residence hello i can barely remember being given such access at other locations around the world absolutely shocked. says his summit with north korea is after receiving what he called a very nice letter from kim jong un. the european court finds countries complicit in the torture of terror suspects. and the european
union and mexico retaliate against the u.s. . on metal imports. broadcast live in moscow this is our national i'm john thomas certainly glad to have you with us donald trump made a dramatic u. turn this week saying his summit with kim jong un was back on the talks will take place on june twelfth in singapore that announcement came after russia's foreign minister met with the north korean leader in pyongyang our correspondent traveled with the russian delegation and was granted rare access to the north korean leader's residence. we were told to leave most of our belongings and all our mobile devices he climbed
in and now they're taking us somewhere. so we're here in this band 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 it's only someone told me where exactly we are right now but we are being told to fold us now with. the group of people. who. i don't really know what exactly this place this but it looks to be the area where it came john who will be three teams. and the reason why i think still is because just through this door i saw him john leave sister and she was having some sort of conversation with the guards but nobody
speaks english your fellow feeling and as far as i understand this is circular. feel each. meal believe this is a bit of a historic moment we still don't know whether the him from meeting is going to happen but at least sergei lavrov is here having direct talks with the supreme leader of the athlete. please . sergey lavrov. and talking behind this we were asked to wait in this room so let's just have a walk around to take a look at what they have to offer
a. dark north korean chocolate i can tell you that it tastes just like any other dark chocolate anywhere around the world. so this is how suddenly you get treated to cranberry juice at kim john lewis residence. i can barely remember being given such access at other locations around the world we were just told to see the president which is just outside the doors. of the. city of new jersey and given the fact that we're inside the residence of the north korean leader kim jong il 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 said that making the korean peninsula free of nuclear weapons is a very delicate issue moscow maintains that the interests of all sides must be respected. so that said it all ended with. inviting came john to 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 from inside camp john residence in pyongyang. while that was happening a north korean delegation was in the. the us meeting the trump administration they also passed a private letter from kim jong un to president trump who described it as very nice however it isn't clear that he had actually read it at that point. a letter was
given to me by him you know and that letter was. thirty minutes later i would you like to see what was in that letter would you like how much how much how much it was a very interesting letter and i haven't seen the letter yet i purposely didn't know for. i haven't opened it i didn't open it in front of the director when the letter was passed to trump by a former north korean intelligence chief who was part of the delegation in the u.s. the upcoming summit was earlier called off by trying to do to what he called open hostility despite the latest promising signs pentagon chief james mattis has said that the sanctions against north korea will remain in place unless the country takes irreversible steps to end its nuclear program but experts we spoke to agree that ultimatums are unlikely to solve the situation. but spiel where there are a lot of people here in washington who do not want this summer to take place and they
certainly do not want any kind of accord between north korea and the united states idea that this could be a gradual process is a realistic one but i think here people here would like to present the north koreans with an ultimatum which of course will will will not solve the problem doesn't understand anything beyond the fact that this could be a good photo op and possibly a boon for his ratings the u.s. has never taken north korea very seriously i mean the idea of the greatest military power in the world sitting down with a country that they've already always considered impoverished and backward i think is anathema to many people in washington the message that kim jong un is sending you know he's meeting with lavrov he's meeting with xi jinping. signals to trump you know i have friends in the region and you're the one that is isolating yourself by pulling out these international agreements and so you know i'll be fine with or
without you. the european court of human rights has ordered two countries to pay compensation to victims of cia torture romania and lithuania hosted cia black sites between two thousand and three and two thousand and six one of the suspects in the case was a key al qaeda figure according to the cia but no charges were brought against him during his interrogation he was waterboarding to eighty three times the cia says the other men led operations in the gulf for al qaeda our europe correspondent peter oliver has more on the suspects treatment after the european court of human rights at this to say. there had been held in these facilities and the domestic authorities had been aware that the cia would subject them to treatment contrary to the convention now what we have heard is a little bit about the conditions in which they were kept in lithuanian site we're getting a little bit of a glimpse into what was going on there and how prisoners were held up this this hearing no it prisoners were kept in blindfolded all time they were put in solitary
confinement and they were forced to wear leg shackles at all times as a beta gave an account of what was done to him while he was in detention must warn viewers that this clip comes a company with some of the bed his own sketches that have been released as part of a freedom of information request some viewers may find them disturbing they unchained my hands from the bars and chained them with short chains to the chains that were around my legs which kept me in a bowing position at all times they brutally dragged me to the cement wall he started brutally banging my head and my back against the wall i felt my back was breaking due to the intensity of the banging he started slapping my face again and again meanwhile he was yelling and then he pointed to a large black wooden box that looked like a wooden casket he says from now on this is going to be your home he violently closed the door i heard the sound of the lock i found myself in total darkness.
we saw a few of them accompanying that clip just there but the sketches that zubeida made well they really paint a very disturbing picture quite literally of the conditions in which he was being kept the two men are currently being held in guantanamo bay now since the detention facility opened there in two thousand and two it's been open to prisoners scandals over abuse now the current u.s. president donald trump peace supports the you solve waterboarding he said it many times however this is something that well the rest of the world pretty much considers torture when diana marbury which by the way which by the way we are keeping open which we are keeping. and we're going to load it up with some beer dude split we're going to load it up would i feel strongly about waterboarding as far as i'm concerned we have to fight fire with in fact donald trump doubled down in his support for waterboarding as he promoted the woman who is in charge of the
cia black sites to the top job in agency gina hospital who's well referred to by her detractors in the media particularly here in germany as either the torture queen or bloody gina well she took over as the new cia director lithuania says it may appeal the ruling we discussed the case with former guantanamo bay prisoner mausam back. the reality is that these are war crimes and he was prosecuted for this and nobody will because it's because there's no prosecutions the new president can come along and say i believe torture works a lot more waterboarding is a great thing because there is no precedent if it is in prosecuted for the crime that it is prime then he would never dare say such a thing so imagine that somebody's going to sub-saharan africa we we. we. all we're doing it it's up to it's in our country imagine what would happen if
they said that and indorsed court or. the e.u. canada and mexico are vowing to retaliate against the new u.s. tariffs on metal imports is about to put the work which is totally unacceptable to the measures carries the threats of a spiral of escalation that will result in damaging everyone nobody wins in a trade war there are only casualties another european response will be united and thrown by them we will take measures equivalent to those taken by the united states we are imposing jollier for dollar tariffs for every dollar levied against canadians or under the new rules e.u. countries will have to pay a twenty five percent tax on steel and a ten percent on aluminum to sell on the u.s. market the e.u. is now the world's second largest steel producer after china and europe has taken its concerns to the world trade organization to see if it can resolve the dispute
with washington now the european union plans answer with equal tariffs on at least two hundred american products in a matter of weeks novelist is expected to include peanut butter orange juice levi jeans bourbon whiskey and well motorcycles a former prime minister of croatia told r.t. how america's move could damage the global economy. i believe that move for a doesn't have any real basis because if you're looking job c. in the u.s. steel industry it's shaved incline status we heard much more much import that in the us three or fewer us economy and didn't bring any good. free trade in the world. right to spoil of pretty trade and their global economy by unilateral moves of a staged murder of a russian reporter in ukraine has shocked journalists around the world that's one
sanctioned. and that to any group of countries so while it sounds contradictory it is contradictory and pakistan this shows that pakistan will do what is in its national interest it will not just pull the end of a meal the other. back this is the weekly on r.t. international journalists worldwide have rounded on the ukrainian government for faking the death of russian journalist our colleague bob janko in kiev the staged murder of journalists our country bumpkin could by the ukrainian security service is distressing well the reappearance of the reports and maybe a great relief is deeply regrettable he crane's authorities have played with the truth no matter what then most of relief that a comedy but it was a life i deplore the decision to spread false information on the life of
a journalist it is the duty of the state to provide correct information to the public. police claimed to have found a journalist with gunshot wounds. they said he had died on his way to the hospital but less than twenty four hours later it was revealed the murder had been staged ukrainian security forces said it was carried out to foil a russian plot to kill the journalist donald quarter reports on the fallout from the case. when a russian journalist was pronounced murdered in the ukrainian capital it didn't take long for the ceremonial finger pointing at russia to begin he was only working on things that were critical and investigative of russia and of the russian government as well he said there was nothing that was critical of ukrainians of course that network and its boss placing the blame on the kremlin and on russia journalist known political leanings have led some to point the finger in one direction it was a calculated deliberate international terrorist crime committed on the direct
instruction of the russian authorities who can blame them when the story has all the perfect ingredients the russian totalitarian machine putin's regime going after the kremlin critic except the guy turned up alive and well a magic in everyone's confusion what on earth is settling on fred all these developments in just the last hour or so i know left us absolutely gobsmacked when a second so what the heck actually have been here russia said it was relieved that arcot he was alive but also fiore us and understandably so after being falsely accused of murder questions of life and death in ukraine as well as the international community's trust and its politics are nothing more than a bargaining chip for the kids regime just their apparent tie russian he syria. fellow journalists were outraged too when a state says a prominent journalist who had received threats was murdered i think the media have to report it but with the fake news in ukraine have reduced all of our credibility
trump would be proud had learned not to trust ukrainian authorities on don't best warrant but assuming something like this fishel confirmation was solid apologies it's on wikipedia is most notable fake death so what gives while the murder was staged by the ukrainian secret service to foil an alleged kremlin plot they say they did it secretly not even his wife knew imagine what the poor woman went through but one you. raney and lawmaker thinks this is ok because shine a comb successfully used the method of staging his own death to effectively investigate difficult and complicated crimes well if it happened in fiction must be good in real life too whether ukraine will produce evidence that there was ever a russian plot in the first place remains to be seen but after a stunt like this it's hard to imagine many will take anything he says at face value most your own money when someone manipulates information they deceive the
rhodian it's it is clear that they are deceiving their own citizens so for us the actions the craning author writes is absolutely unacceptable and the free media have suffered most from this i can't comment on what it did or didn't do i don't know the exact circumstances but i do know that he's participated in a big circus a masquerade which is of course a big problem for him and for the credibility of journalism. go has responded to one article in the british media which said that the staged murder may have done more harm than good for ukraine he posted a comment on facebook using offensive language and saying that if the british people really want to help him they should give him a u.k. passport and protection. german chancellor angela merkel has ruled out any possible debt relief for italy that is after a new euro skeptic government took power in rome on friday following months of political turmoil in the antiestablishment five star movement and the league party
concluded a so-called government of change deal they are pushing for anti russia sanctions to be lifted saying moscow as a partner not a threat also high on the agenda is reforming europe's migrant policy and renegotiating italy's crippling debt to the e.u. countries must be no question of what has more on the political shake up. italy has been left hanging this past three months since its election faced with the several candidates for prime minister but it seems the political uncertainty in the country has finally come to an end with the euro skeptic collison spake condé busy forming his government but his path was a thorny one he was first suggested by the five star movement and league party two weeks ago and it seemed all was good until the president vetoed conti's choice for a finance minister at that ala the italian president who was installed by a previous pro e.u. government refused to accept the minister he saw as too anti brussels. to
i asked him about ministry of political figure who is not seen as supporting the line. from the year. and that was that contact quit leaving the government in limbo well you know one can say no to a minister whether was named goofy pluto or donald duck because he's not approved by the stock market world the financial world or some european capitals is this a joke and it seemed the only way to avoid a constitutional crisis was to had back to the ports so the president suggested his own candidate former i.m.f. chief got a look at that only a more popular choice in brussels where you just simply i reiterate my friendship and support for president who has an essential task to undertake ensuring the institutional and democratic stability of this country that is known as mr assessors for his willingness to cut public spending making him an unwelcome choice
for many italians moreover seventy percent of the country voted for the euro skeptic parties back in march tired of us there it's he and the migrant influx. that i think expressed their choice and it seems like this choice is being ignored so we're left with a bitter taste that i wasn't expecting this situation but in this country nobody wants change because then they can't see what they want so we don't get to a solution that would help the citizens of the country don't want to be sold being for nothing i voted but my vote has been trashed and it was the president not the coalition or whoever else you want to blame the president has decided my vote is worthless. but perhaps unexpectedly entren prime minister got that only refused to form his own government well that left conti once again in the best position to guide rome forward with the president this time accepting his cabinet picks for now
everyone's happy and even brussels as it will work with condi in power last disappoint the new italian prime minister being unknown haider the rocker say what we've been noticing during these years is that for example germany is making sure on the other states like greece is a lie spain about italy and giving orders like it was like the master of europe but this isn't or acceptable italy is the third largest state. italy's our founder counter it is to be respected the. people will be respected and italy can stay of course have to work in the european frame of war for years but playing the role that it serves that we are not going to be the call only of germany and we can accept the kind of artist with. the ball
which is to be used in the opening game of the two thousand and eighteen fifa world cup is finally back on earth it was brought back by a crew of three from the international space station they spent six months before their journey back the crew got a chance to have a kickabout of their own up in orbit. and that does it for me i'll be back in about thirty five and a. if minutes with another look through a quick survey of. her. about
your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us 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 more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to you now because there are no other takers. to claim that
mainstream media has met its maker. and would need to make this manufacture consent instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. with the primary go around lifts only the one percent told. us to ignore middle of the room signal. to lose million more unionists to the world. in july twenty seventh in holland a freelance journalist working with on two visited militant shelling in syria. on his sacrifice quality has established a khaled memorial service they will recognize more reporters who often risk their
lives for the sake of the truth and through that peace you can submit to your published works in a video format until june the twelfth to go to a war. you never know what's around the corner you never know what's in the pub you're going to walk and you never know who's going to be there and it's the excitement it's that not know it that's where the adrenalin must comes from through.
only going is a means by definition and extremes to all for your support because you're prepared to fight for the reputation and name of your football club. the violence is a part of it and it's the schizophrenia gang culture like it's a part time gang culture where you can do all these things and behave like that. i. believe in islam is that least if you try and involves it's constantly evolving.
vertebral market zero zero. zero zero the oracle. despite owning three restaurants he still prefers to tenderize and grill me to himself it isn't just his stuff and clients who called him the shelf chef is the nickname of the founder of the wise men from gothenburg one of the most violent gangs of football hooligans in europe. back down extremity and into heaven anyways it was strong thing to do soccer to football he wanted a family and having installed korma lot and now it's all more violent supporters and for them yes it was kind of easy targets for thought in doing trips over there
risking pubs you know just to rest people and a few us finally had enough and like ok it will fight back. from being as more like self-defense most of my view and sort of you kind of get it this is that it is more office started going to trips abroad got. i mean standing up i read stall or wrecked stuff i was stabbing was it standing face before is this more like old school fighting storming pogs closing each other you know rewards you know people are using sticks and knives and bottles and everybody i'm going to get your hands on chairs now it's more violent but the white house was worse back down he didn't have any reeds and actually want to kill each other and indiana a guy one of our guys actually died now the smaller sportsmanship well for this fight.
