so here's the thing the chinese government almost never says anything you wouldn't expect that's their thing their gimmick they're incredibly careful reserved at least with their tongues so when the chinese president orders his military to prepare for war serious indeed. the military to concentrate on the bouncy revenues for war the chinese are preparing for war out loud how over how did we get to this well trump for one aside from land blasting the chinese at every opportunity is tariffs is sanctions his trade war he's also being very heavy handed congress has just approved a second arms deal with taiwan in eighteen months. of untruthful the sales of
weapons by the united states to taiwan damages china's sovereignty and security interests. beijing's sees china and taiwan as two parts of a whole two chinese entities same culture at this it's the same languages with two separate governments communist capitalist the end goal is to reunite into one state there are differences of course currently preventing that and about one hundred kilometers of c. that separate the two and trump always a fan of sticking it to the chinese he's been saluting his warships right between the two chinas i see. we have expressed our concerns to the us. the taiwan issue concerns china sovereignty and territorial integrity and is the most important and sensitive issue in china u.s. relations. for starters how about you express your concerns about these
important and sensitive issues to someone who cares a little more because that in trump we worry about. i don't worry about things. let's be great never worrying about anything unfortunately others are there are those in china who believe that america wants to declare independence and the chinese are preparing for that eventuality militarily . as your own you know we are resolute to defeat any scheme or act of taiwan independence in any form. thing is the taiwanese don't really see a point to defending themselves taiwan which recently switched from conscription to
a volunteer army is having huge trouble recruiting even reserve troops dodging the juicy after all that's the point of a win. the government needs to think whether it's necessary to bring conscription back to the theme of national security matters but taiwan is a minor player in these confrontation if war does break out it likely be the people's republic of china slugging it out with the united states rather than taiwan and that is a war that trump really really ought to be worried about the world is really at a cross rolled the united states has been pushing china around he merely china and imposing unilateral tyrus on the chinese exports china does not want to have a trade war with the united states and china does not want to have a conflict with the united states but if the united states really wants to impose
these things china i think the chinese people will be fully mobilized behind the chinese government and the chinese military. on friday the trumpet ministration announced that washington's reimposing all sanctions against iran that were lifted as part of a twenty fifteen nuclear deal i thought took to twitter to ultimately toned tehran with the news in a post that resembled the tiger line from game of thrones now the sanctions which are slated to come into effect on monday follow america's unilateral withdrawal from the iran nuclear agreement in may this year a new sanctions come on top of the ones already imposed by washington and focus heavily on iran's oil sector in allies in states that refuse to stop imports of crude oil from iran the u.s. secretary of state my pompei o says the main target is the iranian government the sanctions hit core areas of iran's economy it is aimed at depriving the regime of
the revenues that it uses to spread death and destruction around the world i mean time people on the streets of tehran though told us it's ordinary iranians will end up bearing the brunt of these punitive measures. time about manson's a hard to come by because of sanctions no doubt if you are caring for a patient your life is affected by these sanctions sanctions decrease the quality of life unspeakable cannot know octane things they used to have tame easily for us for them but it was i'm a merchant in a century cannot trade with businesses outside of iran any more it would take its toll and we have yet to see to what extent that affect ordinary people and merchants. actually every year or every two to three years they see new sanctions will be imposed so people have gotten used to sanctions but that doesn't mean we accept them and it doesn't hurt it means we've had them so long they don't affect us anymore they harm the regime in the nation they have always been there for the past four decades and they've been arming the you reigning in nation all along
their inquisition that's why many other. states that are under sanctions like russia like any of theirs they are all against this move especially because this new round of sanctions by washington it doesn't have the u.n. support it doesn't have the support of even the united states close allies like the europeans that have stated their opposition in defiance china turkey or russia and many others have defied the u.s. sanctions against iran and many are worried in washington that this could make these sharp tool or weapon blunts and make you know take it off the menu even for future u.s. administrations if it goes ineffective despite the pressure coming from the u.s. the european union has kind of the blocks commitment to the iran nuclear deal brussels also failed to protect european companies doing business with iran however
despite all the tough talk washington may actually be slightly more flexible than is letting on. we ask all nations to isolate iran's regime. as long as its aggression continues but we do not intend to allow our sanctions to be invaded by europe or any body else. you know we will work to maintain the framework of the twenty fifteen deal in spite of the american decision by ensuring that our companies can stay in iran looking at the latest official so for the cha cha i want to see the same. with friends we need to show that he's going to want to be muscles that wouldn't be blind it's what americans do want us europeans to say because economic interests a move one time economic relations with iran.
we never threaten anyone but we do not tolerate threats from anyone. we want to we want to achieve maximum pressure but we don't want to harm friends and allies he. wants a mean for zero. on they are now giving two countries the exemptions for you in for that indicates that they have maximum pressure on the wrong. and now they are changing that maximum pressure enough pressure. that's also on the question because they cannot. be needed they think against iran because
now there is an american captain. ministration on the this connecting iran. policy system which enables the signs obscene messaging that can be a. top and i guess you were on this in the mix leave but that's the air we have inside the united states between. officials in the cabin the. french human rights groups are calling for the reopening of an investigation into the rwandan genocide of one thousand nine hundred four it's off the release of a video which appears to show a senior french military officer being informed about a massacre that was taking place in an area known as a base i saw two hills in the army failed to intervene. before you and he only two could push now human rights activists are demanding answers one leader of the
organization survey is a plaintiff in the case she says it was too premature to close the case while other lawyers are accusing france were in direct complicity in the genocide lines of inquiry were not sufficiently followed up to allow investigators to determine france's military and political responsibility french military were aware that from the afternoon of twenty seventh of june on words civilians were being killed the survivors open the case thirteen years ago although back in july it was scrapped due to lack of evidence and lack of convictions but survivors of the massacre claim they asked the french military for help on june twenty seventh one thousand nine hundred ninety four but the military only came three days later already after hundreds of people were killed in the massacre and the allegation now is that the french government actually knew what was going on and specifically decided not to intervene in the genocide was committed mainly by the hutu government and its
backers against the ethnic minority tutsi tribe allegations of the. french government supports for the hutus who carried out most of the slaughter in the genocide have been rough on the french government's relations with the rwandan government for years but the french although they admit that they've made mistakes they say they have no complicity in the genocide that took place there. we spoke to one of the survivors of the massacre about the video of the french offices nor of the duma must know this is video doesn't surprise me i was very
happy that media part of the truth that we the survivors have known this for a long time it's important that the french people know what happened back in one thousand nine hundred ninety four when the military was there so you know because i only know that promise to declassify the archives if they didn't work out i see everything he was already known the only things i have to add is that the french people has want to know the truth. an english seaside village has found itself getting some unwanted attention in the u.s. midterm election campaign a j week silence is known locally as one of the u.k.'s most economically challenged areas but images of it still operated streets appeared on a republican party poster a political explains why. what links this essex seaside town to the upcoming u.s. mid-term elections and insensitive political advice that's what locals here in jail
exxon's in essex have been left fuming after a pro trump republican candidate for the senate for the state of illinois used a photograph of j. wick sands on his social media feed as an anti advertisement so the caption next to the photograph read only you can stop this from becoming a reality but the problem is the picture wasn't quite reality the image of jay wick sans that he used was taken several years ago and since then the local authorities have made quite a few improvements to the local area so the miracles they're all rather cross country to try to pocket america are and then you come to a cover of a walking guy and you see the different plane. when it is in america we don't remember for the right now again i was iraq everything america we hear is just let's say we can referee it winds come in use an old fire of africa somewhere and say look your town is going to look like this is the bad news sells good news it
doesn't. match nobody should new used are going to put a good picture on it we got a bit of hostility with the camera down there is it kind of is it is do you guys feel a bit kind of burned by the negative press attention that you guys have had yes because it's a really show that happened way before yeah now when you want to come study would say become a sticks in people's faces it's just you know we would you know people don't like it they don't like it or the offending advice has now been removed and dr nextel as spokesperson has issued an apology or cough an apology our intent was never to smear to town and to photo known to us as j. wick sands in essex we never used a name for us it was an example of a town overburdened by poor governance. which is exactly what we in our district are seeking to provide at every level back in two thousand and ten and two thousand and fifteen the government named the area as the most deprived in england in fact i
was here to report on it at the time the time was thought up as a holiday resort for city dwellers back in the one nine hundred twenty s. these are all meant to be summer houses but because rents were search cheap people started living here all year round some parts of the town like tarmac roads street lighting or even pavements the last few shops that we have been boarded up unemployment is rife in the town in fact sixty two percent of the people that live head to pend on welfare payments. in the town isn't exactly a luxury seaside resort it is still a deprived area and even the local authorities have been keen to stress that they have invested in new roads and new drainage systems it could use more money there is some hesitation when you talk to the locals as well they don't want to
talk to the cameras they've been burned before by bad press and they're keen to turn the image of the town around some concede that they could definitely use more investment but it's not up to politicians in america to judge their hometown one interesting suggestion came from the director of a documentary about jay which she said that dr nick stella should come over here and she could show him around the town and so he can see for himself all the improvements that have been made i get the sense that the locals here would have one or two things to say to him or the weekly continues in just a moment here on r.t. international in the mix of the stories of the u.s. backed syrian democratic forces stop operations against islamic state. in a moment. in
terms of i mean he has never actually been used to nobody has been prosecuted but you are right it was only renewed ten years ago by a previous government and it really shows how out of step. this one time there's been a huge movement of women and young people on days been pushing the political establishment you know relentlessly on the issue of abortion rights because ten women a day leave the country and five others were taking on line illegally. the united states under many threats as a long growing. break in its treaty and other promise. the united states says is going to leave the treaty again.
thanks for joining us on this sunday. syrian democratic forces which are mostly made up of kurdish troops have announced a temporary halt to operations against the islamic state that comes several kodesh villages were attacked by turkey near its border with syria and the u.s. has been supporting kodesh forces in the region and washington considers them to be effective fighters against isis meanwhile on the opposite side of syria i saw terrorists have gained ground close to the border with iraq killing over forty u.s. backed fighters during an offensive the group's resurgence ultimately goes against what some had been led to believe as you could have done off explains. from all the
boasting you may have gotten the idea that muslim mixtape in syria is so two thousand and sixteen the coalition to defeat isis has liberated very close to one hundred percent of the territory we've done a good job with those as we have just absolutely decimated those but the latest carnage is a clear signal that the terrorists are not ready to buckle just yet they've squeezed every drop of profit from the victory they've been craving for so long from obvious territorial gains to a massive p.r. push they filmed their operation and spoils of war from all thinkable angles it seems even with reinforcements america's proxy ground force the kurds couldn't hold off the surprise onslaught hard for its incursion tuesday both sides but we will continue to go after them in the weeks ahead i saw the latest propaganda video even includes a not so subtle threat a skyline view of the government controlled town but hold on just how much of
a surprise was this latest isola tag really sure they've moved in under the cover of a sandstorm but it's not like the kurds which are in charge of eastern syria didn't know eisel was on their porch they have been fighting terrorists in the area for a whole year but despite their best efforts to little success and that could be due to the fact that their effort has been dwindling gradually apart from i saw the kurdish fighters have been focusing on skirmishes with the syrian army and repelling the turkish operation against them in the north this plays into the yard as sounds perfectly since assad's forces are not going anywhere and neither is turkey as president erdogan tease the next phase of what he calls an anti terror operation in syria but don't use them as you know we have started active intervention operations against the terror organization in the last couple of days we will. soon come down hard on the terror organization with more extensive and
effective operations the united states also has been convincing the world it's hell bent on cleansing syria of terrorists yet years on it's their area of responsibility where i still strikes well with its bloodiest attack in months and i wonder could it be because american troops are in fact miles away from all the action we don't have a cantor arena mission here we have a defeat isis mission there are many players in the syrian conflict and all of them are hungry for a geo political boundary in syria and writing off eisel early means risking another wave of terrorist resurgence earlier we talked with baroness caroline cox a member of the u.k. house of lords who has been heavily criticized over her stance on syria and she thinks the media continues to turn a blind eye to many of the things if not most of them happening in the war ravaged
country. i've had very vicious articles about me in. the newspapers like the london times there is a big media on story that he's very biased indeed and it really does not give an equal representation of the horrific atrocities perpetrated by the jihadists but it's not going to stop me trying to be a voice for the people of syria and the many people out there who do supporters and i do find when i do speak in different contexts people just say thank you so much for putting me on to. all the truth from the b.b.c. we knew there was more to it than that in thank you for telling us the other side of the story so there's a lot of appreciation and a lot of latent support waiting to be mobilized and i'm sorry to say that the u.k. and saudi arabia big time have been supporting the jihad is that just prolongs the suffering the people of syria i think it's unacceptable and my bottom line position is that the people hysteria decide that in future let's stop intervening proxy wars
and i've managed to find out questions in parliament that the british government has used at least two hundred million pounds of taxpayers' money to support the hardest related groups i think this is unacceptable i think a lot of british people would be very worried by that and the truth must come out because to have a democratic and open discussion and i've stayed in the houses of parliament in the house of lords that i think russia's been doing the right thing in syria russia's been helping the syrian army to get rid of the jihad is that must be the priority and i really respect russia doing that. and the near the weekly about is i stop short of history for you a camera dating back to the second world war has been recovered from a trench in southern russia and against all odds one frame from the roll of film.
but the nazi troops couldn't approach the strange they kill him with the ground cover. but a small bird lucky that this is a good camera and expensive film also the fighter covered camera with something like a notebook. and that is wrapping up weekly for this hour here on r.t. international there are many will headlines to come your way in about half an
hour's time you can join us. and what politicians do. i put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. more somehow want to. have to try to be for us it's like the four three in the morning can't be good but i'm interested always in the waters in the house. question. when lawmakers manufacture consensus uncertainty of public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. when the finance larry go around the lifts and be the one person.
