but unlike previous years this summits was less about togetherness and more kids who well divisions of a family breakdown with washington and beijing vying for the loyalties of other countries you know the two big giants in the room what can i say so which economic superpower would do you side with we have option a china striving to better communications and connections than time i was looking at the vast ocean when i boarded the ship and it struck me that we are all indeed fellow passengers in the same boat that is keep steering the wheel steady and paddle in the right direction and it seems that whereas with misgivings that is what king on becoming more open. you are mankind has reached a crossroads which direction should we choose cooperation or confrontation or
openness or closed doors when when progress or a zero sum game and it wants to be able to reach you easier by land by sea any way possible then we have option b. the usa now aside from everything else the us is better than china why because it says so united states has a principled approach that stands in stark contrast to some other nations our vision will prevail besides beijing is just a user anyway china is taking advantage of the united states for many many years. in those days are over. unlike china the us doesn't want to tie you down it just wants you to do things the american way so it doesn't have to punish you the united states. offers a better option we don't drown our partners in sea of debt we don't coerce compromise your independence with a lot to say on the local fun club at hand if this was
a custody battle see jim paine good get the kids the red carpets were rolled the bones plates chinese flanks were waved clearly papua new guinea has already been wooed by the middle kingdom but how do the other countries feel some analysts say the u.s. still has its trump card and despite all this america first talk many countries in the region still crave a slice of the american pie the truck to put to sea has become. recent or an excuse for small countries to our support and this will help from the united states to hedge against china and that i think that this is wonderful news for the small countries despite this that the vision of disagreement between china and the u.s. and the rivalry among them are escalating i think. very much an opportunity rather than something i grew up i'm actually not growing up of because people find a lot of opportunities for the smaller countries to get into these rivalry scenario
and trying to work together to try to find us and child together so that they can get past a lockdown it was an apex of firsts first time has been held in papua new guinea and the only time leaders have been unable to agree on a formal declaration so is divorce on the cards for the apec family with trump and she said to me to the g twenty this month in their first face to face since the trade spun began the question is will the leaders be having double tyra's chocolate cake or coerced into sour grapes. monday marks a milestone on the completion of a major black sea gas pipeline project with the russian and turkish presidents announcing a key of shoreline's been finished the city correspondent war goes deal for the details. the completion of the portion of the turkish stream is in didn't of
itself a milestone politically and economically this is the chief object to be speaking nine hundred kilometers of pipes two pipes running together laid the under the black sea a depth of up to two kilometers under the under the sea itself certainly this is done very quickly and let me put in expressed hoops that the land pollution of the pipeline will be laid just as quickly as to with the pipelines themselves they have a fruit put a combined throughput of thirty billion cubic meters of gas a year that is enough to keep twelve million european households heated supplied with energy with natural gas for a year so certainly that is a huge amount of energy that europe is now going to be getting from milton it's of . the presidents of russia and turkey who met again to mark the occasion both expressed optimism that this is only just the stuff to talk them we and our russian
partners have now come to the final stage of the project this is a project we've put a lot of effort into russia is a long term reliable partner and a very important natural gas supplier. but i want to thank the president of turkey it's good mr. if that but i. believe he just google you for his political will and courage why because projects like this can't be realized without it under increasingly competitive conditions. over the last year was so glad to be a putin has been a frequent guest here was turkey whether it be face to face meetings with the president that will try lateral meetings including iran. three countries have helped establish. in syria said the demilitarized zone and through their agreements
their efforts a military invasion of. by the syrian government was averted were godless both leaders have remarked time and time again that russian. relations are on the up and up that they're breaking new we level the swath of the construction of nuclear power plants new gas pipelines multilateral agreements economic political and military and again they both hope that these relations will continue to improve . to the kids and for the t.v. to watch cuts should theory be a safe bet to keep them quiet for a bit anyway but just make sure they're not being covertly programmed with propaganda some western news reports now claim that a globally acclaimed russian series is indeed trying to influence young minds as jacqueline vogue has been finding out.
that little sweetheart was marsha from the cartoon and the bear originally russian the series has been translated into dozens of languages and won the hearts of millions across the globe but it turns out there may be a sinister side to the enduring little girl and her protective hat kind. of. now what russia has forgotten to mention there is that some cartoons are in fact evil putin propaganda yep according to a times u.k. article moshe is just another putin puppet russia is feisty. but also a proxy she punches above her weight is not far fetched to see is putin esque but it seemed to be particularly worried about one scene in a single episode where moshe is seen wearing a soviet border guards hat. apparently
that's meant to be a statement on russia's defense of its borders but even if we say that's true what kind of kid would pick up on that but hey it's best start when they're young right the studio behind this propaganda masterpiece of course denies being influenced by the kremlin's hand saying they received no state funding but we did a bit of digging and found some ominous signs you simply can't ignore here comes the kremlin for all of two seconds that could easily be interpreted as a soviet red star disguised as an innocent christmas decoration and you may not realize it but the weird hat that must have got on here is a traditional russian hat now i know those examples aren't so much propaganda as they are just random russian things but that's all we could try but worry not it turns out the bear itself is a representation of russia as a whole you see bear you think russia right the base symbolizes russia it's a fact it's a struggle for the minds part of a hybrid explosion in which
a negative image of russia is replaced by a positive oh the horror the horror now you know what your children are being exposed to and can protect them accordingly. the bear are not coming to invade your homeland masha and the van is hybrid more than. just british empire apologist and he sums up american decadence better than. my nephews watching my very cute they don't seem to be particularly indoctrinated. i really really do not want to read more about how masha and the bat used to his propaganda. i can confirm that i watched two episodes in there when i was nine and i suddenly became a twitter bot he speaks russian. still to come this hour about international russia china rallying against plans to widen the remit of the world's chemical weapons watchdog what's happening today or across
let you go right to be for us it's like i'm up for three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of. course if. i get international soap the british prime minister said to brussels on this week to try to seal the deal over bricks in the u.k. sheffield's leaves the march twenty ninth next year just over four months away now after that twenty sixteen referendum that left the british public bitterly divided on the issue the other twenty seven e.u. states are expected to sign off on the so-called divorce papers and european representatives have been given some positive vibes over it they say that the deal
will finally be concluded this week. just to brief the ministers of the u. twenty seven and the agreement to reach last week at negotiators level and the draft to reach their all agreement as well as on the outline of the particular correction on the future edition chip we are in fact at the decisive moment in this process no one no one should lose sight of the process the progress that we have been achieved in brussels and in london. i am pretty that ministers today support to of all the package globally speaking this deal is fair and balanced we want an orderly exit of you came and to you twenty seven stand behind that united when i side there be a lot of brits are buying it trees i'm a struggling to get support for a backhoe where it's led to a raft of government resignations and party plots to oust him from ten downing
street after one of the toughest weeks yet is p.m.a. said that getting rid of her would not make the breakthrough talks any easier anyway. it's actually about what's right for the country and as far as i'm concerned i'm going to distract from actually the important job in this critical week of negotiations making sure we do get that final good deal for the country but you know a change of leadership at this point isn't going to make the negotiations any easier and it's not going to change the parliamentary arithmetic but some of the biggest criticism of tourism ese you divorce plans come from within our own party at least twenty five conservative m.p.'s say that they've submitted letters of no confidence in the prime minister forty eight are needed by the way to trigger a leadership vote so you can a toll on the party to the tories is slipping in the polls right now as supporting voters lou faith in the p.m.'s plan the opposition labor party take a three point lead right now ramping up pressure for a snap election so we're going to go let's talk to karen jones the economics professor from lancaster university thanks for your time today just look at number
line syria says the trees are major told business leaders that the brics agreement quote will work for the u.k. and set the country up for a prosperous future and the empty words if you're really going to pull the rabbit out the hat. or the draft agreement certainly got a bad person initially various bits of it will leak and twitter was full of suggestions about what was in this draft agreement before cap and got a chance to discuss it last thursday before it was published so when we've seen the full draft agreement there are certain things in it that look quite attractive from mrs may's perspective so for example she has managed to negotiate the possibility of an extension to the transitional deal as an alternative to the very controversial backstop that gives her something that she can take to the democratic unionist party and say that it's not necessary for ireland to be treated any differently from the rest of the u.k. she's also got something that she can take to the hard line breaks it is in her own
party the european research group that have been very damning of this deal because there is a root. out of customs union or customs partnership with the european union there's a joint council risk being created between the reputed union and the u.k. as part of this withdrawal agreement and if they can't agree on a way forward to britain leaving a customs union with the you then it can be taken to arbitration so there are mechanisms there whereby the clothes customs partnership can be ended professor a lot of people are saying on the streets of britain it looks like the prime minister everyone can see she's got a tough job but a lot of these major issues that need to be sorted that britain voted for just being kicked down the line. that's true but that was always going to be the case for spin agreed at the moment is the withdrawal agreement the trade agreement and discussions on that must come later
that was something that was established very early on in these negotiations the withdrawal agreement has been accompanied by a political declaration that envisages a route forward and that route forward is in very much more accessible language than the legal leads of the withdrawal agreement itself and what the negotiators in visit here is having a route forward that involves close customs corporation close regulatory environment alignment that will allow a minimum of friction at the borders so that's one possible route forward but it does appear to be the area where negotiation within the conservative party itself will continue and they'll be a lot of arguments about just go into the sack and it's just as you see it panning out at the moment is this a brave new golden word world for britain is it going to be this great box of hope coming its way or not. absolutely not there is no breaks that that is going to be favorable certainly from an economic perspective
any breaks it is going to be bad for britain the government has taken the brief of delivering a break agreement and as things go you know it's not likely to have got a better agreement whoever was prime minister to press it isn't it professor jones from lancaster university thank you for being on the program much appreciate it. russia china of trying to convince members of the international chemical weapons watchdog the o.p.c. w. to reconsider giving it the power to apportion blame artie's correspondent peter all of us in the hague following that one today. well the twenty third o.p.c. w. conference is underway here in the hague the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons have a lot to discuss but top amongst the things that are on the agenda is a proposal that was put forward by the united kingdom it's an extraordinary session of the o.p.c. w. back in june now what this would see would be a huge increase in the powers of the organization it would give them accusatory
powers allowing them to identify the perpetrators of chemical attacks now this proposal passed back in june by the very slimmest of margins one hundred ninety three votes in favor eighty three against this proposal was put forward to after the poisoning of you and set a good script in souls in the united kingdom earlier this year that resulted in london pointing the finger of blame at moscow saying they were behind it russia stringently denies that stale and we've heard from alex on the show again he's russia's permanent representative to the o.p.c. w. also russia's ambassador here in the netherlands saying that this particular proposal is an overstep our position on the proposal made in june is that in darwin the openness of w. with functions it's never been meant to have would constitute an infringement on the u.n. security council spouse firmly believe that blame attribute is not provided for in the convention for the prohibition of chemical weapons the pretty site though have
accused russia of trying to slow down the process by using false claims that this goes against the mandates of the o.p.c. w. the decision in front of us today and let's be very clear. it was agreed by suggesting it was not compliant with the convention that is simply not true it is a proposal which is clearly designed to obstruct the implementation of the decision which was supported by eighteen states and. i'll be coming in and out of the conference throughout the day keeping an eye on what goes on in there we are expecting to hear. from ambassador shogun the russian representative later on monday evening as soon as we do is find out what he has to say well of course obviously you're here live on r.t. . just as mexico clashed with police during demonstrations against a wave of migrants making their way through the country.
these pictures in from two one hundred gathered there on the u.s. border were caravan of migrants to central america trying to make their way into the united states and last thursday alone about two thousand migrants arrived in that area around a thousand more expected there likely to be stuck there to for months crucially while asylum applications a protest vote says that's putting huge pressure on mexico and the local services right now where they're all gathered the u.s. has ramped up its border security in that area with helicopter trolls and barbed wire and crucially for the residents to honor tempers are starting to fray. and you know they're not migrants it's a human avalanche but i'm not against the migrants i'm against how they're entering the country now marked up by this demonstration is necessary to push for the respect and rights of tijuana citizens we do not protest against anyone in particular we only demand respect for our city that they invade our lives and
nobody protects our homes can i allow someone to come into my house to invade my life demand that i feed them with what i have earned well no way i want to register i want to ask for asylum because nine months ago my brother tried to kill me in a political campaign what are we going to wade through a little bit because people say that it is like they're not going to give us anything that they're doing that so people get exhausted not deported to endure this. well so things look in so far this early monday evening is twenty six minutes past six. one i don't know off breaking news straight to mobile device you never miss a thing but i will take a break. maybe then for the latest breaking headlines in about thirty four minutes time.
a time here we're going underground as russia the u.k. and other signatories of the ninety nine. three chemical weapons convention meet in the hague to discuss the future of the o p c w coming up on the show with the british government in chaos we speak to someone who once received the biggest individual democratic mandate in the european union a long time comrade of jeremy corbin ken livingstone's and the agreement to lift sanctions on any track record one through see improvement in the field peace and security and the positive steps every train is taking to meet the demands of the security council while britain continues economic warfare all around the world
what's behind it voting to drop the un sanctions against the fact the linchpin of global security eritrea last week told class in golden age hollywood and the ogre of show business with the son of joan collins author an artist alexander newly visible coming up in today's going underground but first to that country bombed out orders from tourism is today is expected to be the last briefing at the u.n. of on boy staffan de mistura on syria this was the official his pleas arguably went unheard by the british government shortly before u.k. bombing in the spring recall of doing sure expect for international humanitarian and human rights law including your money did enact across syria to all people in need and we urge once more concrete respect to rid the lucian twenty for dinner one throughout syria that resolution for a cease fire apart from against isis al-qaeda linked groups wasn't really a factor for tourism a and blairite labor for them it was about the highly likely
over the conclusive we judge it's highly likely that the syrian regime has continued to use chemical weapons since then and will continue to do so or as our opposite number said i believe that the action was legally questionable and on saturday the united nations secretary general and turning to terry said as much reiterating that all countries must act in line with the united nations charter luckily for tourism a compliant press over u.k. aerial bombardment. i mean it's a civil war was never really legally questioned even if historic giving his briefing today will likely not mention it was to raise i'm a responsible for escalating the syrian catastrophe that killed hundreds of thousands and that involved u.k. taxpayer funded militias opposing president assad even the media doesn't listen to corbin perhaps they should go back in this and donald trump before the arguable u.s. deep state got to him he has aligned with russia and with the rain they don't want to isis.
