welcome to the program. and at the white house have agreed on the first official summit between. putin and the date of the meeting and the location not yet revealed but it is known that a third country will be the host of the summit was announced during u.s. national security adviser john bolton's visit to moscow details here with. this summit is indeed happening what have led to me at putin's a aides also said that it was organized before john bolton's visit to moscow but we learned we had a few details as to why or how this summit was organized john bolton said that don't trump ease for mending relations with russia despite criticism both
at home at the broad the fact is that it's important for the leaders of these two countries to meet there are a wide range of issues despite the differences between a square those president trump and president couldn't think they may be able to find constructive solutions i'd like to hear someone say that's a bad idea which you know it's important that it's john bolton saying those words because he's aggressive when it comes to foreign policy he cool russia's alleged meddling in the u.s. elections and act of war and dad now he's backing donald trump saying that we do indeed need this summit that you know it will benefit it will benefit everyone especially at this stage with vladimir putin called the relations not in the best shape which is baps diplomatically very polite others would say that the relations between the united states and russia. are at an all time low i have to begin with
regrets a belief stating that relations between russia and the us a not in the best shape and i said it many times and i want to repeat it in the meeting with you i think this is a result of acute internal political clashes within the u.s. but your visit to moscow gives hope that we'll be able to at least take the first steps toward restoring full relations between our countries. also a number of tough questions asked of john bolton with gods in his prior position is very anti russian classic republican as. someone. my colleagues called them during the press conference but he said that what he said before what he wrote before was you know it got besides he won't comment on it because it happened before his current post that his national security adviser to donald trump he was also asked the funny question that you know he was treated with more respect than the pull pull the american jobs with germany because vladimir putin wasn't late to his
meeting with. john bolton at which he. said i don't want to replied i want to comment on this question but let me a book and also it's that. friendship they both reads rated that desire med relations to make he said that they have even offered to share russia's experience of hosting a world cup it was with that i want to congratulate you on winning the right to host the feed for world cup in twenty twenty six we so far managed to organize the world cup appropriately we'll be happy to share our experience you know and. most appreciative of your courtesy and graciousness here and i look forward to learning how you handled the world cup so successfully among other things donald trump has also confirmed that the meeting is taking place i think that ukraine and syria are likely to be among the topics of discussion we asked
a former pentagon official michael maloof about any common ground the two leaders might be able to find. i think first of all they'll agree to disagree on certain things for example on the alleged russian interference in the two thousand and sixteen elections i don't think that that's uppermost in trance mind but it's primarily business and i think that that's where things are going to be heading i think he also wants to tone down the confrontation that has been going on as i said you i saw i saw today much more tame bolton who really wanted to push an. you know right up to the russian border that seems to be something that trump seems to be wanting to diffuse a little bit principally because the allies are not forthcoming with paying their share and secondly as he pointed out and hinted it's quite expensive for the u.s. to carry the carry that burden all the time so it's easier to make nice then it is to get nasty and and i think that that's where trump is is going to be heading
bolton's visit to russia was discussed during trump's meeting but the portuguese president with the conversation inevitably turned to football's biggest tournament and portugal's stop playing. i think they're doing a fantastic job with the world cup right now. it's in russia and i will tell you that it's exciting my son loves soccer and he loves watching the world cup and they have really done a fantastic job as you spoke of soccer let me down off you something well make you a suggestion if you're going to me is to put in what i want to hear looks very good . and if you ask me to greet you so of course he was expecting but anyway. don't forget to vote your head is the best place in the world that you scold oh i'm sure your old son knows it was all about and so don't forget to eat if you. were
russia during the championship don't forget both you and steve that i. think we are actually doing very well. it is the day fifteen of the world cup in russia and the final day of the group stage of the competition belgium and england who clash in group g. tonight are already through to the last sixteen so the fans can ultimately relax and just enjoy the game being played in the kaliningrad for many it's their first trip to russia. mark brown's call them father were born in northumberland kentucky and so it was in my blood just to follow on from there from the farm for as long as i can remember really i think it was the nine hundred ninety eight world cup that reversed first
got me into focal. length. on life in the south on themes of russia over the last four years quite frequently. some of the signs of never seen it. for a hot head absolutely miles away i'm going to. had those facts the. wealthy try to act. i don't really understand the safety concerns of come from this be a lot of bad press accounts and you're thinking seriously i'm going to think it's been happening so i. like to see when i went to the confederations cup competition oh dear i do we talk think so so i don't know any of the police but the army's.
cooperation with each other to install the security measures. from the genesis of drawing him because he's going out and you know if you've read enough traffic safety in the trunk. but good luck to you i will brian and so do you know some scaremongering in the media a few of brit's about surely coming to this world cup than previous ones but it's also usually about trying to found out some of them now wish they hadn't been quite so wary. the. parents to watch their loved ones star at the world cup is one of the proudest moments in life so how terrified standing rows have been all flushed as he said this ahead of the tournament i'm not worried for myself but i've told my family i'm
going out there because of racism and anything else that may happen while the definition of racism that i know is quite different from what the russian world cup guests appear to see and feel when they got to this country. and then. and i guess one after spending a bit of time in this country the three lines the thunder changed his mind because some of the days where we've had a day off from the gulf is a lot of people families to come to the hotel and we can go to a family's hotel. quinones having lost family him it's not yet clear and danny rose now thought sell because he saw players from his team meet with their families or he just never came across issues of racism in russia anyway let's ask
the fans around here if they could tell us more about their experience. have you seen any instances of racism. thank goodness you know yeah we went into the sit. in. before but. just like that absolutely nothing honest about. not take everyone is friendly you go to a restaurant you go to the shopping malls even if you don't know about to go just by someone even if they don't speak up way but they try to leave things that you have any problems because of your skin oh. well if you talk about the middle east in the calo of any dog that meet an old school so i don't feel anything on that you're taking pictures with me and everything was just ok so far so loving.
and nice about me but rango artsy kaliningrad seems venue for the group g. decided on thursday and somewhere we haven't been able to find any traces of racism . the sun newspaper is among those spinning a narrative of russia as a dangerous violent and homophobic place that's sports presenter and lipton who's in the country has a bit of a different tale to tell. i think the the welcome of the russian people is being clear to everyone the open eyes ation has been seen previously i've always found russian people somewhat movies. than they appear to be at least at this moment open and friendly. people everywhere which is quite to say i know so i'm just blown away by how brilliantly in the transport system is because the london underground really is a disaster and this place you can get anywhere in no time it's all in
a much bigger city down to which of my kids and my wife i'm saying to them she's fantastic it's i think people worth i said faithful they were they were put in a position where they soon the worst was always think should assume the best they will say of how the world they never dreamed of going to the chapel just pulled in the mind by its very nature so that's going to be positive and they will go home with a very different image of of russia because they've experienced that they had here based on his spin of will pleasure to be here not to salute joy. while wednesday's action is anything to go by we could well be in from all surprises are some highlights from last night's game. i. caught.
wednesday's shock result could prove an inspiration to some and group h. who are playing today for example colombia who can still make it through to the final sixteen if they win the match the support from their founds is going to be true be. by idea when it goes case by one of those they all tell me young goalie full speed ahead million photos you. know you'll think you think you need to get. better but up ahead of mission pretty efficient means that you will meet getting what i love being good on day even though we had all bought a house and got all the seat belt but were you out of rope but they had to be where you got some gigs joe. just fatal yeah right young may be.
able to have on the set is the key to being that it come one day me not that i listen to you yet they can take a long but i have full company you have told me style your focus should be obvious that it will be very much but when it's ok to play i have only. where do you. see. how i really see. when i while having fun on the streets of russia's host cities you can certainly bump into all sorts of interesting people one look alike of the north korean leader
kim jong un his game for a selfie with just about any. excuse to get. was. cool. last. minute like this one. and while you might spot the odd leader like it's the fun small around the world that are everywhere to be seen and in the mix of them oxys praeter all over who's clearly enjoying himself. couple fun sometimes here in russia over the world taking over. this is amazing
here i feel in moscow like in belgrade. yes. it's amazing what are some of you guys been able to travel around much where you go yes sure into gaza. with us are a stray which if you took us to see our train from near nice where would you end up like yelling no no. we are having a great time different atmosphere we don't care about any results and we win if you think belgium will it it's right that's the first time we've heard that on this program the people who have been doing care they were appearing at the front step not ok what was going on now i was a ph imagine the work of the world. to make up for that could you do you still say that because we didn't see you play any football yesterday rejoicing. that five six seven eight. lovely on my head. oh oh oh
fall greece is still basket case racism is the last last country italy's about to crash because the money is being printed and you see be printed trillions of euro's it doesn't go to help these economies it goes to monaco it goes to the people in monaco and it goes to twenty one twenty two trillion dollars estimated offshore money that's managed for these people they get all the free money from the central banks of the manifestation of it in monaco. twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow but the members of the international chemical weapons watchdog the opi o.p.c. have now voted to allow it to assign blame for that of chemical attacks it was the
u.k. the first proposed extending the o.p.c. powers previously the organization had a mostly fact finding mission some details here with boys. this is a huge development the u.n. chemicals watchdog is now taking on the role of judge essentially it will now be able to assign guilt to four chemical attacks and up until now the o.p.c. w. its job was to establish where and when an attack took place but it wasn't in charge of deciding who is responsible that is all about to change the british foreign secretary boris johnson he went to the hague to the o.p.c. w headquarters to a gathering of all the members and he called for the o.p.c. w. to be allowed to essentially name and shame perpetrators of chemical weapons attacks to present. the p.c.
government to experts who say. well. at the time. who was responsible. if we. look at the weapons that must be pretty strong backing the for that proposal or strengthens visit to the hague clearly worthwhile it's certainly being hailed as a major victory here by the u.k. by france to help to spearhead the initiative but the o.p.c. w is obviously the name of an organization that's been on many lips recently has had rather a lot of work on its hands in recent months there was that chemical attack in june and also the poisoning of the former russian spy sergei script and his daughter yulia back in march that took place here on british soil and westminster blamed moscow for it so the u.k. was particularly key to spearhead this initiative in order to sort of further
efforts to apportion blame for incidents like the one in seoul's very earlier this year and going into that the russian side had said that it considers the proposal self-defeating it was against it because they said it gives western countries the ability to influence decision making within the organization and essentially to manipulate its opinion so for russia china syria and the countries that voted along with those countries this widening of powers they said they didn't want the technical experts becoming the prosecutors at the same time but the vote has taken place it's been decided that the chemical weapons watchdog will have these new naming and shaming powers although it's not yet clear how exactly those new powers are going to be deployed. experts that we've heard from told us the move could ultimately undermine that of the role of the u.n. security council being that the o.p.c. w.
has a history of conducting probes regrettably without even visiting the sides of the incidents. this is about bypassing the security council isn't it. and it's a pretty much dangerous should do the c.w. say pass a judgment that this is a culprit then we have a group of nations who can based upon such a resolution say we're going to go in and you know strike this country or that country and so on and so forth without really needing to go to the security council in a sense this is in danger of. world peace one of the remarkable things about the current attack last year ridge donald trump followed up with an attack on. another facility as well was the fact finding mission people never actually went to a crunchy cooler on the ground very early interviewed victims people who survived the attack. we know how witnesses can be influenced in one way or another not
entirely truthful so it's really important in addition to written it's evidence to go to on the ground soil samples and samples and all the rest of it that wasn't done in the contrary one carries. the biggest facilities belonging to american telecoms giant eighty and he reportedly collaborate with the n.s.a. enabling the u.s. spy agency to snoop on private e-mails and phone calls that's according to the online news site the intercept eight of the company's buildings across major u.s. cities are believed to be central to the n.s.a.'s surveillance activities. according to the report the agency uses a large amount of a t.n.t. customer data with traffic trolled daily as evidence for the alleged collaboration of presents classified n.s.a. documents public records and interviews with a stuff now another into a separate report about the alleged collaboration it was released on twenty sixteen this concerned the titan point building
a skyscraper with restricted access that's able to withstand an atomic blast it's an eighteen c. facility but was reportedly used as one of the main centers of the n.s.a. surveillance program former n.s.a. technical director and whistleblower william binney things that this kind of spying violates the law the agency can neither confirm nor deny its role ledge classified intelligence activities what eight hundred he calls period the eight eight period sites inside the united states at eight hundred eighty s. those are period sites or the sites where the multi networks come together in the they put together you know border gate protocols between one another so they can transfer data between each network and the real issue is the other eighty some tapping points that they didn't talk about then those are the ones that are actually targeting the united states citizens and you know that's the violation of the constitutional rights of every citizen the united states and they've been doing that since two thousand and one and they aren't even addressing the european law
for example the the e.u. clearly says that the data that any third party holds it belongs to the person involved and they want to share that with anybody they have to get the permission of that person so they've been violating european law so they need a class action lawsuit in europe against the eighty in t. in any of the companies it's easier to shoot sue them and more pertinent to do it that way rather than you know try to sue the u.s. government because they'll drag it out in international court for years this is aussie international thanks for joining us and sharing your time we are back at the top of the hour with more. as he should be. one of the people so if you be in luck because.
forward to retirement is that there have none he moved can you be here michel. him and i should then most him. later. this is a poem bus broadcasting around the world from right here in washington d.c. i'm part shown to thank you for joining us coming up today melissa amo the c.e.o. of the stock food joins us to talk about that supreme court decision in favor of american express that we reported yesterday i guess and what does it entail for
