purred. president trump retract his support for a joint statement of the g. seven summit in canada the meeting ended in disarray amid growing tensions with washington rules based international law that is being challenged by its labor market then we go to the u.s. maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be and in the stories that shaped the week here on r.t. the pentagon admits the civilian death toll in syria may never be no enough being accused of possible war crimes. and football's biggest stars lionel messi and cristiano ronaldo here together with their national teams arrive in russia ahead of the world cup with the championship now just four days away.
well i welcome the latest developments in a look back at what's been happening over the last seven days to you watch the weekly here on r.t. international. now the g. seven summit in canada has ended as it started with tension between the u.s. and its main allies shortly after leaving the meeting donald trump abandoned his endorsement of the summits joint communiqué via twitter he accused the canadian prime minister of making false statements over u.s. tariffs on metal imports justin trudeau described the reasoning behind them is frankly insulting and that sort described canada's response as dishonest and weak the trade was not the dividing trump and the other g seven leaders.
i would rather see russia in the g. eight as opposed to the i would say that the g eight is a more meaningful group than the g seven absolutely. here we all agree. can't happen until substantial progress has been made with the problems with canada's position is absolutely clear that there are no grounds whatsoever for bringing russia with its current behavior. if there is to be any conversations about russia's future in relation to this particular group they have to change their ways they have to change the route that they're taking on this sort of activity. involved.
what it is a surprise at the summit and in disarray given that it was riddled with the visions from the very start quarter expects. you don't get maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be the rules they used in the us for the. be just so i get the go to the u.s. the g. seven june summit seems already destined for dysfunction with a heap of complaints from the u.s. as european allies some are suggesting a name change to keep up with the times we should have been united to england to save them to the group who challenges of the world and instead of that we would be divided between not just certain it would be
a g six one it's not too hard to see where the fallout between washington and the rest of the pack is coming from in just two years donald trump has caused serious problems for a major international agreements first by announcing he was ditching the paris climate accord then the iran nuclear agreement the breakthrough deal which took years to negotiate and now he's unleashed a trade war with the e.u. by slapping tariffs on their steel and aluminum. the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal the united states will withdraw from the paris climate accord the united states has been taken advantage of by other countries both friendly and not so friendly for many many decades and i'm here to protect and one of the reasons i was elected as i'm protecting our workers on protecting our companies even the angle of merkel who is known for maintaining her
cool during the worst diplomatic spats has had some strong words to share about the u.s. as recent exits this cloud it is clear that especially with the exit of the us from the climate deal there is dissent within the g seven just as much as with the announcement of tariffs on the mean human steel which we believe are illegal and also the issue of the iranian nuclear deal which the u.s. has withdrawn from. there may be disagreements. i regard this as. much like a family quarrel we will do what is necessary to protect the united states its businesses and its workforce don't blame trump. blame the nations that have broken away from those conditions blame the other countries now that's what you want to hear right before a g. seven summit the post motivation trip between your peters and so u.s. president is better that. no ideas because also the jobs as
subjects we are talking about that these lesions would be better if we have. not only covered with the toes we have covered on almost every subject and lived between the bus routes and washington so you'll be new in humans united states who become bigger and bigger. meanwhile there is another summits going on in china had. a moment and it involves the leaders of multiple eurasian nations including the host nation and russia and their russian president vladimir putin was asked by journalists a bad moscow's relationship with the g. seven. concerning the return of russia to the g eight we never left it our colleagues at the time refused to come to russia for the known reasons but we still welcome them and everyone in moscow concerning the comparison of the g. seven and the su oh the purchasing parity of a c.e.o.
countries is bigger yes g seven countries are richer but the scale of the economy is bigger in the su countries but it is possible questions to the russian president surrounding the g. seven meeting were perhaps inevitable given the public city it's received over the past day or two and given that russia was of course a key topic of that meeting and also a key topic of disagreements and bickering among the g seven leaders mr putin effectively extended an olive branch to those nations stating that russia was always willing to host those members in its capital moscow for further discussions he also touched upon the speculation of his upcoming meeting with the u.s. president donald trump agreeing with the president that this would be something that would be very much constructive and useful in the current climate and also stating that he shares many of the concerns his u.s. counterpart has. you know our last conversation he expressed concern over the
threat of a new arms race i agree with him but in order to discuss this thoroughly we need our foreign ministries and experts working closely with each other and of course we need to have personal meetings as soon as we can we will touch in briefly upon the summit itself mr putin said it had been highly productive in its new format of course with new new members india and pakistan joining for the first time as fully fledged attendees with a whole range of agreements signed from economic political and security cooperation as well as the russian president said it was vital that this regional cooperation and dialogue does take place in order to decide in order to work on those regional issues but also wider international issues of course the crisis in the north korean peninsula the iran nuclear deal crisis with. a leader warning here that had a meeting with mr putin as well as well as of course the ongoing syrian conflict so very much
a productive summit according to the russian president. and hawkins there now it's been a year since the official launch of the operation to liberate the syrian city of racket from islamic state terrorists who had made it the capital of their self-proclaimed caliph it well they come in to coincide with the anniversary amnesty international released a new report on the situation in the devastated city accusing the u.s. led coalition of relentless air and artillery strikes and even suggesting it may have committed war crimes and according to the coalition itself the real number of civilians killed in the battle for iraq will never be now. as far as how do we know how many civilians were killed i'm just being honest no one will ever know anyone who claims they all know is lying.
or getting to the bottom of what was really happening in iraq as the americans and allies were freeing it who will be bothered to do that or it will take ages the prose of war behind these walls may have thought but scrutiny was inevitable coalition claims that its precision and campaigns allowed it to bomb islamic states house of rocca while causing very few civilian casualties do not stand up to scrutiny based on information from amnesty international's field investigation and public reporting coalition in artillery strikes killed hundreds of civilians and injured many more open amnesty's report and you'll find words like this proportionate and discriminate bombing the use of white phosphorus claims which could turn into a reputational disaster if proven things that amount to war crimes the us led coalition mission to free iraq a went on for more than four months from june sixth to
a cobra twelfth last year and the pentagon proudly told the world they'd fired thirty five thousand artillery rounds while they were at it the fired more rounds and rockets syria than any other marine artillery battalion or any marine or army battalion since the vietnam war yet we kept hearing from those whose orders matter how cautious they war there is been known military in the world's history that is paid more attention to the limit. and we should just administer and john the battlefield and the coalition military are not perfect guys we can make a mistake. and in this kind of warfare what happened we are the good guys and munitions people on a battlefield know the difference you can't help wondering how many innocent locals general mattis has actually met i'm sure you can find many of those who are genuinely grateful to the coalition for kicking myself out but just compare his
words to some of the witness accounts our team heard while in iraq there was that in effect in washington when we were directly targeted by the coalition after the recognizance craft filmed us it was a low altitude it was very clear there were no terrorists in the area but there were kids playing in the streets and we were collecting water and i knew little that i knew that if the aircraft bomb using phosphorus targets everyone it is not hidden i still the coalition is boman brendan lee if you're sitting at home a bomb may come down on you there are houses that collapsed on their residence and they could not get out all this happened because of the aircraft they were plane comes in strikes for instance a five story building i said would be on the second floor while civilians on the third and fourth floors how comes the plane still strikes then most civilians died the ones all terrorists and we weren't alone in hearing those worrying calls from that devastated syrian city humanitarian groups on the high alert had to many more hors to share with us and the rest of the world there are worries about how this
operation will affect civilians we're concerned about the safety and protection of more than four hundred thousand people in iraq as these operations commence to strike we've investigated it was. not a year in coalition authority so you actually believe the actual number report about who was under orders that if you thought any of that led to a change of tactics by the coalition or at least an apology i have to tell you they seal that themselves from scrutiny with. monthly casualty reports we've been largely focusing on the fate of rock of civilians in our coverage. nationals now weighed in with some serious work it could be high time we hear something new from the u.s. pros of war it was a prank of reporting what we did to request comment from
a number of humanitarian organizations the international committee for the red cross said it repeatedly expressed concern for the safety of iraqi civilians during the city's liberation while the u.n. agency for children said it had no information on the matter middle east expert you're sure landis told us that more could have been done to save civilian lives. i don't doubt that the united states has used efforts great efforts not to kill people but in the end they were not for it they were at the un asked them multiple times to give a break so that civilians could get out they didn't want to negotiate with i guess they said we're going to kill them on the battlefield they didn't want them as prisoners in another kuantan imo since the gulf war nine hundred ninety the first gulf war the united states constantly insisted it didn't count the enemy it didn't know how many were killed and it wasn't going to try to find out later on there were some investigations but by and large that has been the protocol of the u.s.
which is not to count the enemy and to and to try to keep it secret really now there are only four days left until late summer as big a sporting event does kick off the faithful will come up with which stars that have already arrived here in russia for the tournament just off the bright. light for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the super manager killian erroneous and spend be true to the twenty million one player. it's an experience like nothing else on to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful guy a great so one more chance with that. and thinks he's going to take.

has seized the e-mails and phone records of the new york times reporter as it moves to plug ongoing leaks of classified information the issue you has come to a head under the trumpet ministration but is artie's nicky gavron explains why it dates back long before then. trump's white house has a serious problem it's leaking a shocking secret memo leaked to the new york times white house's most prolific leakers all the weeks we get out of the way else why this white house leaks and all the reasons it's hid there's always so much fun in this white house is so leaky there are even leaks about why they're leaking and so in an effort to deal with the issue it's just funny to move on from its fatigue to war of words with the media and show a bit of muscle wrong with the press. or the press are also where the fire is very. well charms verbal disputes with the press have become commonplace his latest step can be seen as
a watershed moment that is crossing the line into spying on journalists now at the center of this is new york times reporter ali watkins whose phone and e-mail records were secretly seized amid a justice department investigation into this guy james a former high ranking ate at the senate intelligence committee who's suspected of leaking classified information to reporters and he also happens to be the former boyfriend of what kids during their three year romance that what kids they excelled in her career even being shortlisted for a pulitzer her skills in gauging tipoffs from elusive unnamed sources were praised by her university breaking national story was the direct result of tips she received through unnamed sources with whom she's developed trusting relationships she denies ever using her former lover as a source however now some of her old tweets are coming back to haunt her i wanted
to be zoe barnes until episode four sleeping with your source especially in the decks of congressman gary gray area ethically he could be which i'm ok with the boards of the washington heralding a source close to the president nixon sure however. actually i want to go over i'm sorry mr president but i will not do. you intend. well. so on a scale of one to ethical how does everyone feel about pulling a real zoe barnes for story ideas for media rights groups however what we're seeing here is trump's latest push to demonize journalists which represents a true declaration of war on the press we believe that the government seizure of. the dangerous president we fear it could be an opening so. going battle over reporters ability to produce think this but such intimidation tactics on reporters
are actually nothing new investigations into journalists on their sources were heavily ramped up under trump's previous s.-a in fact under president obama the justice department prosecuted more leak cases then all previous administrations combined so perhaps it's time for everything on using this journalist shine a light on many issues around the world keeping citizens informed prompting robust debate this discussion we certainly face that here and holding governments accountable we honor the many journalists and media professionals who dedicated their lives to the profession we see all too often that journalists continue to take great risks to pursue this important work just come up say thirty pm here in moscow you've been watching the weekly here in r.t. good to have you company we're back with more in half an.
after all see i play golf. join me every thursday on the alex sullivan show and i'll be speaking to guest in the world of politics. i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. the reason we call these our ships is because they're a ship to sail on the seas of tomorrow that's kind of why we call it that they're
not a house house needs power lines coming in and gas lines coming in and so we had lines going out and water lines coming in. a nurse ship is a bessel or machine that provides all of these things there are six things that humans need on this planet they need water they need comfortable shelter that doesn't use fossil fuel they need electricity they need to treat their sui generis some way and they need to treat their garbage in some way and they need food these housing units called earth ships address all of these things all over the world and these are the same six things that humans all over the world need to have addressed . living in the ship community here in the greater welds there's about there's more than seventy houses about one hundred forty people with families living here who know what when i was little i used to feel like some kind of like. a fairy
a living there because you know it's so very. very organic very like you need let's say something like i was a woodland fairy a living man a secret castle and. it feels really feels really solid and there's this sense of solidity living inside an earthen structure there's this sense that. we connect to something stable. and cool and kind of see the clinton. than we can get the house that's conventional. materials. because a little more connected to the outdoors as well you know when you're indoors but it's quite comfortable i think to like a few people can compare you know being in a suit to whom or in a sense to you know sweat lodge like once you're inside of it you do feel much it you feel that you need to being taken care of. as you say and you feel the solidity
you really feel careful but at the same time it goes in both directions so you need to take care of your house for your house to take care of you properly. we just close the skylights which are basically the hut during the day evacuated through the skylights and because it's now night time we just want the heat at this time to stay inside the house so every night which is close to the close it's retaining the opening to really. we use tires for the structure of the building we call them. radially reinforced rammed earth bricks as what they really are the tires are radially reinforced with steel for being tires but that works perfect for.
