so. the g. seven summit sees a major rift open between the u.s. and the rest of the pack with trump retracting his support for the joint statement the meeting ends in disarray amid growing tensions with washington. rules based international although it is being challenged by the slave market that would go on to the u.s. maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if you need to be found in the stories that shape the way the pentagon admits the civilian death toll in syria's racker may never be known after being accused of possible war crimes there plus football's biggest stars lionel messi and cristiano ronaldo along with their team mates arrive in russia ahead of the world cup but the start of the tournament within touching distance.
hello good afternoon it's just gone four pm here in moscow you're watching the weekly on r.t. international now we start with the news that the u.s. president donald trump has just touched down in singapore for the historic u.s. north korea summit and here are some of the latest pictures from singapore airport where force one has landed trump on meet the north korean leader kim jong un on choose day mr kim is also in singapore gearing up for the highly anticipated summit here arrived a few hours earlier on an air china plane the meeting will be the first ever face to face contact between a u.s. president and the leader of north korea. well from her arrival in singapore comes after his departure early departure we should say from the g.
seven summit being held in canada the two day meeting was marked by a huge rift between the u.s. and other club members as tensions flared over critical international issues. 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 agreed to a return of russia to the g seven format summits can happen until substantial progress has been made in connection with the problems with ukraine canada's position is absolutely clear that there are no grounds whatsoever for bringing russia with its current behavior into it is that 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 the sort of activity that evolved.
well shortly after leaving the mason trump fire twitter abandoned his endorsement of the summits joint communiqué he cues the canadian prime minister of making false statements over u.s. tires making another sticking point between the states justin trudeau described the reasoning behind the terrorist is frankly insulting response trump went on to describe as dishonest and weak the summit was riddled with divisions from the very start. maybe the american president doesn't mind being isolated today but we also don't mind being six if need be the rules placed into the us for the low the. be
the size labor market that goes to the us the g seven june summit seems already destined for dysfunction with a heap of complaints from the us as european allies some are suggesting a name change to keep up with the times we should have been united stewing but 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. 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 i'm here to protect and one of the reasons i was elected is i'm protecting my workers i'm 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. it is clear that especially with the exit of the u.s. from the climate deal there is dissent within the g seven just as much as with the announcement of tariffs on i mean humans 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. between you will be leaders and so u.s. president is bed. no ideas because also the services subjects we are talking about good deeds through agents would be better if we have . not only targeted was to tell those we have to target on almost every subject and seems to live between the bosses and washington so you'll be in your mean and united states who become bigger and bigger. well vladimir
putin has talked about moscow's relationship with the g seven he was asked about it during his trip to china for a summit of your asian countries. 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 s c o 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 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 his 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. in our last conversation and he expressed concern over the threat of a new arms race i agree with him but in order to discuss it is fairly 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 be touching briefly upon the summit itself mr putin said it had been highly productive in its new format of course we knew in new members india and pakistan joining for the first time as fully fledged at n.d.s. with a whole range of agreements signed from economic political and security cooperation
as well. russian president said it was vital that this regional corporation and dialogue does take place in order to decide in order to work on those regional issues but also of 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 reporting there now it has been a year since the official launch of the operation to liberate the syrian city of rack from islamic state terrorists they had made it their capital of their self-proclaimed caliphate and to coincide with the anniversary amnesty international released a new report on the situation in the devastated city and accuse the u.s. led coalition of relentless air and artillery strikes and even said it may have committed war crimes according to the coalition itself the real number of civilians
killed in the battle for iraq will never be known. 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. by 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 air and artillery strikes killed hundreds of civilians
and injured many more open amnesty's report and you'll find words like this proportionate indiscriminate bombing the use of white phosphorus claims which could turn into a reputational disaster if proven things that amount to war crimes the u.s. 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 they 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 have ministered on the
battlefield and the coalition military were not perfect guys we can make a mistake. and in this kind of warfare ready to happen 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 the mr definite second version of the we were directly targeted by the coalition of 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 that i thought i knew that if the aircraft bone was in force for as much talk it's everyone it is not hidden i think the coalition is bones randomly if you're sitting at home a bomb they come down and you know there are houses that collapsed and there's
residents and they could have to get out but with all this happened because of the aircraft the airplane comes and strikes for instance a five story building i said would be on the second floor while civilians on the third floor how comes the plane still strikes the most civilians died the nineteen 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 whores 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 strengthen and we've investigated as well. if you're not a year in a coalition authority so you actually believe that the actual number report about who is under reported 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 feel that themselves from scrutiny with. monthly casualty reports we've been largely focusing on the fate of rock of civilians in our coverage and to amnesty international's now way then with some serious work it could be high time we hear something new from the u.s. pros of war that was a prank we did request comment from a number of humanitarian organizations on this story 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 joshua 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 true they were in a hurry the un asked them multiple times to give
a break so that civilians could get out they didn't want to negotiate with us they said we're going to kill them on the battlefield they didn't want them as prisoners in another guantanamo since the gulf war nine hundred ninety the first gulf war the united states house insists that it didn't count the enemy it didn't know how many 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 you watch and wait to hear an r.t. still to come from footballing superstars have begun arriving here in russia for the world cup which does kick off in just four days time to tell you who just after the break. i think that donald trump is really confident about his capacities ability to
persuade people and the power of us personality and all this kind of things and i'm sure the kids and then will try to play this card will try to give donald trump something he can tweet so he can he can show to everyone look i'm the first one i'm the one who rolls the art of the deal and the first one can make a deal with this guy what every other american president before me failed i succeeded. people together. exceptional good will go on the field of play the. fool the feet of russia to shoulder to cool.

issue is to find it to move on from its fatigue to war of words with the media and show a bit of muscle i strongly prefer the press. or the press are also were. very. well chumps 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 wolf a former high ranking ate at the senate intelligence committee who 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

a real zoe barnes for story ideas for media rights groups however what we're saying hey is trump's latest push to demonize journalists a move which represents a true declaration of war on the press we believe that the government seizure of early what can this data sets a dangerous precedent we fear it could be an opening salvo in an ongoing 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 than all previous administrations combined so perhaps it's time for a rethink on using this. journalist shine a light on many issues around the world keeping citizens informed prompting robust debate discuss discussion we certainly face that here and holding governments
