the g. seven summit sees a major rift open between the u.s. and the rest of the pack with trump for attracting his support for the joint statement the meeting ends in disarray amid growing tensions with washington rules based international law that says the show fades from a market there you go into 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 shake the week the pentagon admits the civilian death toll in syria is rakim may never be known after being accused of possible war crimes their past football's biggest stars run messi and cristiano ronaldo along with their team mates arrive in russia ahead of the world cup which starts in just four days.
the welcome just gone six pm here in moscow you watching the weeklies here on r.t. . now the u.s. president donald trump has touched down in singapore for the historic summit between the u.s. and north korea force one arrived at singapore airport in the last few hours trying to meet the north korean leader kim jong un on tuesday i 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 the u.s. president and the leader of north korea. trump arrived in singapore after leaving the g. seven summit in canada. the two day meeting was marked by a huge rift between the u.s. and other members as tensions flared over critical international issues.
i would rather see russia in the g.a.a. as opposed to the jew so i would say that the g eight is a more meaningful group than the g seven absolutely. here we all agreed to return 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 the. if there is 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 and the sort of activity. involved in.
or shortly after leaving the g seven meeting trump fired twitter abandoned his endorsement the summits joint communiqué he accused the canadian prime minister of making false statements over u.s. tariffs creating another sticking point between the states justin trudeau you describe the reasoning behind the tire says frankly insulting a response trump went on to describe as dishonest and weak the summit was riddled with the visions from the very start. 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 based in the us for the low the. just sides 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 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 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. 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 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. between you will be leaders and so u.s. president is better that. no ideas because also serves as subjects we are talking about that these new agents would be better if we have. not only covered with the toes we have to talk about on almost every subject and lived between the buses and washington so you'll be in your meeting and the united states who become bigger and bigger. now this week marks a year since the official launch of the operation to liberate the syrian city of record from islamic state terrorists they had made it their cat 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 it accuse the us led coalition of relentless air and artillery strikes and even said it may have committed war crimes too according though 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. 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 it's precision and campaigns allowed it to bomb islamic state house of raca well causing very few civilian casualties do not stand up to scrutiny based on information from amnesty international is 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 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 u.s. led coalition mission to free iraq 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 be 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 should be with just a minister on the battlefield and coalition military we're not perfect guys we can make a mistake. and in this kind of warfare. we are the good guys and munitions people on the 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 this definite shift 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 that i thought i knew that if the aircraft bomb using phosphorus it 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 couldn't get out all this happened because of the aircraft it will 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 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
strike we've investigated it was. not a year in coalition authority so you actually believe that 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 misty internationals now weighed in with some serious work it could be high time we hear something new from the u.s. pros of war but we asked a number of humanitarian organizations to comment on this story the international committee for the red cross said it repeatedly expressed concern for the safety of rackets of aliens during the city's liberation while the u.n. agency for children said it had no information on the matter meanwhile middle east
expert joshua landis did tell 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 higher states that were going to kill them on the battlefield they didn't want them as prisoners in another guantanamo since the gulf war. ninety ninety the first gulf war the united states constantly insists that 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 the f.b.i. has seized the e-mails and phone records two of the new york times reporters that moves to plug ongoing leaks of classified information the issues come to
a head under the trump of ministration it is artie's nicky aaron explained it does date back long before that. 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 is decided to move on from its fatigue to war of words with the media and show a bit of muscle i was wrong we. are also we were. very. well chums 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 allie 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 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
addictive congressman when a very grey area ethically legally which i'm ok with orange of the washington heralding a source close to the president exactly sure how many. actually i want to go over i'm sorry mr president but i will not. give in to. 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 saying hey 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 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 protect 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 discuss discussion we certainly face that here and holding governments accountable we honor the many journalists and media professionals who have dedicated their lives to the profession we see all too often that journalists continue to take great risks to pursue this important work. my footballing superstars have begun arriving here in russia for the start of the full cup which does kick off in just four days time will tell you just off the bat. what politicians to do something. they put themselves on the line to get accepted
