it would be a shame if countries that we always support lobby against the u.s. bit why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us including at the united nations today is the giani in frontin as rain is going through a massive reforms and one of them is that the decision on who gets the world cup will be made through an open public vote by all member associations it leaves one to wonder if trump had that in mind when he tried to bully the countries into a voting for the us. alexi russia ski r.t. just in no doubt that congress will they choose who's going to host the twenty twenty six world cup president bush is going to be there live within we think probably about forty minutes time as when that happens we should be in another program by then but if the pictures are good will but into it and bring in those pictures of putin addressing the people who are going to be picking who's taking the big world cup in twenty twenty six and talking of which is going to be the biggest since the total began in one hundred thirty it's going to consist of forty
eight teams sixteen more than the current format for consultant and former fee for communications director water do gregorian earlier told colleen bray his expectations for the vote today but it easier to try and host this massive tournament in their place or does it make more sense to try and absolutely absolutely want to and this would be kind of your only factor nor the need to go to morocco already when you have one single country but different states it is very complicated and you can imagine if you have for three different legal systems in all. it's for sure more more complicated than if you have one single country by the end of the money is talking and if you see that the per the forecast is a more than fourteen billion u.s. dollars for four for the united bid and i think seven billion still enough but it's half for the more. i think that there will be the main reason for all
other for voters to go for united doldrum been trying to get the african nations on side morocco jumped out in front in that who do you think has the upper hand in terms of trying to wrestle votes or at least support or you just mentioned trump you know for me trump was the best campaigner for morocco and. i don't want to quote what he said that the africans it might be difficult for some countries to vote. for the united bit purely because of geopolitical reasons and because of the trump and miss ration that will be for sure something negative for united bit. we have a great presentation team lined up for your very own r.t. host i want to burst minds in the game just said marine years been making his predictions last time you pick the countries to make it out of the group stages of the quarterfinals now the nice mapping out who he believes will make it through to the end.
thank. you. for show in brazil the festive portrayal people will say that i'm doing emotional jol and i think. yeah might be the best of all forceful for the final i will first of all go for the school. and comes into the german. north i want. brazil germany is the revenge of the result. so brazil will finish so. you know it does mean is not just. a come to. extra time penalties eleven they take a penalty. that is
a one more penalty and that the last penalty one takes let's see another one takes one. and i leave to go to magic. was a very funny exercise. but. in all those probably didn't even go over the group phase and probably some of the teams that i didn't include in the last sixteen probably there are going to be in the quarter finals and the semifinals and finals football isn't predictable and that's the main reason to be the beautiful game and hope you enjoy them for it to get totally different i don't understand why do you need another just i want to know well you can never have too many merinos so for the world cup we found the perfect co-host for you so much expertise from just a movie you don't miss it at all to guys i'm not going to work with him he will take all the attention and i. another co-host. well for more on the. manager's
prediction head to r.t. dot com if you think you know about it you can challenge him head to facebook or twitter use the hash tag match marina would draw a belgium got a week's worth of coffee zeroed in on that now quick update on the team so far good news for egypt their star man mohammed. has returned to training he suffered a shoulder injury in the recent champions league final and it was unclear whether he would be able to play in russia however the striker is still unlikely to feature in egypt opening game at least against a year ago on friday news about team brazil their training session on the screen is no name he's a bit of trouble in the past recent past brazilian superstar however this time armed with a exe squad shows a rather unusual way of saying happy birthday to one of the team mates he was apparently the ringleader of that got egged him self.
going to crack a few eggs as they say throughout the month long tilman will be in every home city give you a taste of the action starting today five pm moscow time seven hours from the star goalie peter schmeichel. the start of a live coverage from the very center of the russian capital. the trunk in summit in singapore we certainly rich when it comes to optics but what about the substance both leaders are clearly looking for a win in process has started there are plenty of obstacles ahead and no shortage of people whose worst nightmare might come true peace coming to the korean peninsula short term gains at the expense of a longer term growth south some of the best thing is the future and products and employees here taking all that future revenues if you're booking it today just like the man is buying back all the stuff in his own store yes he bought back all of the
stuff in his story he has a lot of revenue but now my store is empty and he has nothing to sell so the next quarter he says my sales are zero because i have nothing in the store to sell i bought it all myself so similarly with apple dell buyback all their stock they want to vest in the future and when it comes time to report earnings in a year or two from now they'll have nothing to report. a good results international but the news of the day now said as well as left on noising choose day summit between the. leaders of north korea and the u.s. the american presidents explained what was keyed to bringing kim jong un to the negotiating table without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here i really believe
you know we'd sanctions and all of the things that you would do but i think without the rhetoric you know other administrations i don't want to get specific on that but there is a a policy of silence sometimes i felt foolish doing it. but we had no choice the summit in singapore was full of mutual reassurances but as more gadgety of reports next north korea should look to the example of other countries who previously placed trust in us presidents of the past. what's not to like a new nuclear disarmament deal potentially one less country with nukes where all bets are off all of us and we have this truly historic moment on film. so why does kim jong jr seem sue suspicious could be anything
poison assassins or trump just waiting to backstab him the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal come to think of it america's nuclear deals to seem to last exactly as long as the incumbent president take the rainy and deal brok obama his partner has worked on it for years so much work so much effort just for trump to tear it all up don't forget obama negotiated the arendelle one of the worst disasters the dumbest deals ever negotiated except don't feel sorry for obama just yet george bush his predecessor also struck a nuclear disarmament deal with gadhafi the two leaders discussed this agreement should help to bring a painful chapter in the history between our two countries closer to closure. it
worked gadhafi gave up his nukes and what does a bomber do well he goes and bombs gadhafi is army alternately allowing the rebels to gruesomely mud him we came we saw that he died. it's almost like something out of game of thrones and we aren't even done bush screwed over bill clinton stop and roll back north korea's potentially deadly nuclear program we'll continue to implement the agreement we have reached with that nation get smart it's tough clinton had worked for years to make a deal with kim jong un's father to prevent then north korea from making a nuclear weapon and bush tore it up as seems to be tradition. north korea is a regime arming with missiles and weapons of mass destruction. while starving
insists states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil trump is one for tradition in fact he has a habit of tearing up documents memos papers when he's done with them he had a bunch of guys at the white house whose job it was to piece back together the papers he shouldn't have torn up we literally had to spend hours per day. piecing together the puzzle prior to taping and here we are generations of presidents generations of betrayal double crossing and deception and it seems that hasn't been lost on kim. germany's chancellor angela merkel faces a government crisis after locking horns with her interior minister of the country's immigration policy has rejected a so-called migration master plan proposed by horst sayer for it aim to reject
migrants right at the german border if they've either applied for asylum elsewhere or been refused it in another e.u. country nicholls rejection of the plans provoked outcry in the bundestag this latest row of a migration policies was part last week a failed asylum seeker was arrested in iraq suspected of killing a fourteen year old girl in germany a body was found near a refugee center in minds international relations professor peter shields thinks germany's a bending to pressure here from across europe and should address the flow of migrants even sweden and denmark or. france. or fortified their systems against the. illegal but my gross and so i think the german government has to do as well according to the majority of opinion among the european members. zero often knows this very well and she is on the up and therefore in that kind of search. and in the end
there will be a kind offer of a compromise but. this very strong influence of the of the variances the party of the of the of society or an antiterrorism prose been launched in austria after the country's chancellor sebastian kurtz received death threats it's believed the threats a link to the government closing seven mosques and expelling dozens of in minds over alleged links to extremism peter oliver picks up the stories i hear a correspondent. sebastian cortes is hard line against what he calls political islam has seen the austrian chancellor on the receiving end of death threats this all started after courts announced on friday that seven mosques would be shutting their doors and as many as sixty in moms were facing deportation six of the mosques run by the austrian turkish islamic union are accused of having links to extremism as well as being accused of harboring hate preaches one mosque run by the group in
vienna but they caused a stir back in april when pictures emerged of children as young as four years old dressed in turkish military uniforms and saluting the turkish flag sixty him arms are also having their residence permits reviewed two of those of already being told that they have to leave the country could says he's sticking to promises he made while campaigning but only. parallel societies political islam and radicalization have no place in our country the federal government is taking action against these undesirable developments the decision to close the mosques which are accused of promoting turkish nationalism is being strongly criticized in ankara where president erred the one has accused the chancellor of fanning the flames of religious hate your material shouted to you could cost you dearly you must know that closing a mosque in austria and deporting religious men could start
a new bottle of the cross and the questions for which you will be responsible at just thirty one years of age could became chancellor at the head of a coalition between his conservative austrian people's party and the right wing freedom party no immigration is alarm featured prominently in the campaign and as we've seen from this latest move continues to play a big part in the policy that they're inactive however since the chancellor is receiving death threats it does seem that this is a poll. it isn't going down well with the whole of austrian society. let's throw up so far this wednesday morning from moscow money was kevin i mean if you've not got up download it already want to check it out great thing specially hundred now of course the world cup while i'm truly with us you keep abreast of the news happening about that for now though for may have a good day and thanks for watching international.
shows seemed wrong but all wrong just don't call. me. yet to stamp out disdain becomes active. engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. apply to many flips over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch put a final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each kill the narrowness and spend each other to the twenty million and one player . it's an experience like nothing else only because i want to share what i think
what i know about the beautiful guy great so will pull chance with. and thinks it's going to. when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer and it means no in the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict respond innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying the is just no way that hasn't been that we hear even many of the dems families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victim's families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't their way.
out what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or something i want to be honest. with you i could be cross that's what i'm up for three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. this should. this is from bus broadcasting around the world from right here in washington d.c. i'm part children thank you for joining us coming up in singapore president prompt
a north korean leader kim jong un signed a document today asserting that the us president would provide security guarantees to the north koreans in exchange for the north korean leader's unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula what does the rest of the agreement say and what would a reduction in tensions and ending of sanctions mean we'll get to all of it starting with the international attorney and trade policy experts and we will wilkie who is standing by and r.t. alex behala that also joins us to look at the economic opportunities that could come about if we got rid of the north korean sanctions particularly with regard to an important pan korean pipeline plus there's new data out today is the consumer price index increased at a faster pace than six years and the u.s. federal reserve open market committee begins two days of meeting last danielle de martino both about it and about other economic indicators to catch up on exactly
where the u.s. economy stands and what to expect for the remainder of the year all that directly ahead but first let's get to a few headlines. amazon has come back to win a second round in the battle in seattle on affordable housing we reported here on the push for a so-called amazon tax and seattle to fund affordable housing and homeless services yesterday guest of the show seattle council member seamus to want tweeted that the mayor and city council plans to repeal the tax entirely at a meeting today this is all happening as we were going to air a proposed tax cap that five hundred dollars per employee at companies with over twenty million dollars in local revenues provoked amazon to threaten to scale back a major downtown construction project the tax was then reduced to two hundred seventy five dollars per worker and passed unanimously but amazon starbucks and other large companies led by the local chamber of congress hit back by funding a referendum to repeal the tax now only councilwoman so want and one other member
of the nine person council say they will vote against repeal of the amazon tax even as housing advocates say seattle remains in a severe housing crisis we'll have more on this story in the coming days. and bad news on climate as china's carbon emissions are set to rise at their fastest rate in six years according to a new report from greenpeace the environmental group examined official chinese statistics on emissions from manufacturing of call cement oil and gas the researchers found that carbon emissions from those sectors rose four percent in the first quarter of the year china is estimated to account for roughly one quarter of global carbon emissions carbon dioxide emissions global carbon emissions rose in twenty seventeen after three flat years experts say getting china to turn the corner and greenhouse gas emissions is critical to mitigating global warming and climate change in related news the u.s. national oceanic and atmospheric administration announced that the planet has just
experienced the hottest month of may ever recorded the average temperature for may was five point two degrees fahrenheit above the historical average. and is singapore president trump a north korean leader kim jong own did a lot of handshaking and backed flapping amid the historic meeting and they signed a document today asserting that the us president would provide security guarantees the north koreans in exchange for the north korean leaders unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula security guarantees were not detailed in the document in fact not a lot with details but what does the rest of the agreement say it isn't too long and just contains a four bullet points so we'll put it up on the screen it says the united states and the d.p. r. k. that's the de democratic people's republic of korea a misnomer but we'll leave it at that for now say they commit to establish new u.s.
d.p. r. k. relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity simple enough united states and the d.p. r. k. will join their efforts to build a lasting as they. peace regime in the korean peninsula all good kudos if that can occur and reaffirming the april twenty three twenty eighteen penman joam declaration the d.p. r. k. commits to work towards complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula and that agreement is the agreement signed at the inner korean summit by kim jong un and south korean president moon j. in in late april about peace prosperity and unification of the korean peninsula and the fourth bullet is the united states and the d.p. r. k. commit to recovery m.i.a. remains including the intermediate repetition of those already identified fair enough but what does it all really mean we are joined by international attorney and trade expert in wilkie thank you so much for coming back we really appreciate it what's your overall general take on this thanks for having me back are going to be
here i think that this. was a mixed bag at best the united states president donald trump gave away a lot by even meeting with the leader of a second rate dictatorship who imprisoned his citizens for political crimes and assassinate people with w m d and foreign capitals so at first blush my response to today's communique will regain a lot on our underwhelming on the so let's talk about the specifics i mean if we can denuclearize if somehow the way but somebody could help denuclearized north korea that's a great game great game but it is a game that north koreans play to draw these things out secretary cohen former defense secretary william cohen and former u.s. senator said is this could take ten years so this is not something that's going to happen anytime soon figuring out where all these places they would need to
denuclearize this is a long game they're playing right this is a long game even up to fifteen years if you take the word of a six freed hacker from stanford who's an even more ado. expert at the denuclearization technicalities what we have here is a country with a very well advanced missile program including a multiple independently targetable reentry vehicle intercontinental ballistic missile the wasan fifteen they're not going to give that missile up immediately nor are we aware of where these missiles are so denuclearization is a process that i surmise belongs with the e.a. and the united nations not with the united states much any to give you not correct we do not have the personnel or or the ability to get in and do a proper job of denuclearization verification ok now one of the things that the president said it wasn't in the agreement that i i read for everybody but one of
the things he said at a press conference was that they would stop these joint practices military practices war games the president called them with the south koreans now that is one of the things that north koreans really don't like and it seems to me you know the president talked about this was a really expensive thing but you know we do these things for a reason to be ready to confront a possible. conflict particularly when there is a nuclear threat there what do you make of that determination by the president to say that we're not going to do these war games anymore these war games have been going on really nonstop since the end of the korean war nine hundred fifty three so they're absolutely part and parcel of the defense relationship between south korea the republic of korea and the united states we shouldn't be stopping them unless we get something directly in exchange in return from north korea and i would posit that the thing we should obtain an exchange for canceling joyed drills is the
cancellation the permanent cancellation of rocket test the nuclear tests if donald trump had been smarter at the singapore summit he would have come home saying look at what we have here people were. stopping joint drills and he's stopping nuclear tests and mistakes as a real possibility that north korea will continue to actually test missiles i think there's absolutely that possibility particularly since they have the capacity to send satellites into space and they can say well we're just shooting up this rocket today to put satellites x. into space while it's actually giving them a lot of valuable data that they can you know their eyes she certainly make the present present trump look fairly silly let me ask you you know we talked a couple of weeks ago about sanctions and and more often than not they maybe don't work have they worked with regard to north korea in look at north korea today we have a north korea that is equipped with this missile i've been talking about that is able to reach chicago and possibly even this town we're sitting in a large room and then to the bargaining table even if we're not striking the right
bar sanctions blew up in our face in north korea they drove the north koreans closer to the chinese and russians so by by trying to punish them financially which the united states always reaches to first as its as its first tool we ended up geo politically moua lining them with with the russians and the chinese so i would say no sanctions have been counterproductive this is an economy that is not very subject such as iran to sanctions pressure or russia to sanctions pressure so they have not worked in north korea the way the united states and the united nations wished that they would have and we international y. our trade expert thank you sir for being here thank you very much appreciate it. and while we are a long way off some like i mentioned former defense secretary william cohen who says it could be a decade what would be a stable north korean peninsula mean in terms of economic opportunity one possible
initiative we may see sooner than later is a shared gas pipeline between north and south korea and russia is hoping to cash in on that argues alex mahela bitches following the story. ron and alex we are obviously in the very early stages of north and south korea having closer ties but you can be sure that the nations of the world are already looking at the potential benefits of a peaceful korean peninsula even if it takes a number a year of years tell us about this pipeline idea. we know that north korea is a resource rich in every way shape and form and just think about cellphones and all the rare minerals that they have up there but beyond that like this pipeline would be huge and of course russia's gazprom they've been on it they wanted to do this for a very long time there was a preliminary agreement signed between south korea and russia back in two thousand and eight it didn't really move forward since then to deliver gas from russia to south korea but to do this affectively you need
a pipeline to go through north korea that's how you bring the prices down because you're delivering it with a pipeline and you bring it to one of the biggest markets in the world south korea doesn't have very many resources they're trying to get rid of their nuclear power plants are trying to push down on the coal and this is something that they really badly need we know south korea is a massive economy it's a powerhouse and just imagine put north korea south korea together wow then you have something that's almost unbeatable in that part of the world so looking at this this fact just what how hungry south korea is this would mean a loss not only to the koreas or south korea in particular but also to russia this is a huge market they've been doing a lot of business with south korea and obviously this means billions of dollars alex i mean you sort of mentioned how the koreans are viewing this but let me ask you. you know if the i don't know if you heard the conversation within wilkie but there talk.
