7:05 am
a concerted effort there is seeking to justify an international intervention in venezuela being headed by due house and their regime change doctrine this is nothing new we've seen these tactics in syria and now the country the person in charge of action against venice well is not in for their first evacuees and attacked in foreign states and that's mr abrams it is very clear was going on u.s. is seeking to arm terrorist groups and rebels in order to destabilize in undermine our. announcer in our t. question that as well as vice president of the biggest has added also that she believes venezuela will not become second syria because the people of venezuela and the country's army are as united as never before in fighting for their future and peace back to you or to correspond to bring us the very latest thank you
7:06 am
a lot of points being brought up there by maria has been spoken about our pressure in the last number of hours i'm happy to say that we can go through some of them with alfred designed itself for its former secretary of the u.n. human rights committee is the first un to visit venice we are and as always welcome to the program for what do you make of that assess spent very direct made by russia in venice well as vice president of the us is preparing to engage in a military intervention over ruling of course the un charter. well perforations have been already since years and the southern command has had the plans already prepared but the question is what will the. international prize in prestigious be for the united states will the united states take the risk of
7:07 am
a flagrant aggression against then as well the united states did so in two thousand and three when the coalition of the willing. bombarded. iraq war which. kofi annan on repeated occasions declared to have been an illegal war so the united states if. especially with a precedent like trump is capable of doing however i am not certain that that is the case what may happen. is that a civil war is leashed in venezuela i am concerned about paramilitaries in colombia as you well know colombia has had a history of right wing paramilitaries doing what they want and massacring indigenous
7:08 am
populations and massacring. social leaders and journalists etc that is not only in colombia but that's a case on durance that is the case in guatemala that has been the case in other countries in latin america so there is a danger of violence and it should be the function of the united nations to prevent that on the other hand i listened last night to the banks in the security council on venezuela which i consider to be so realistic i mean it is quite clear to me that the united states is waging war on international law now i should just gotten into it sorry for interrupting i should point out to our viewers that you were one of the first global voices before the crisis that said that humanitarian aid could be used as a cover for intervention are you seeing do you expect this situation to unfold like
7:09 am
not no. well it didn't work on the twenty third of february last i think that was a fiasco for y. dole on the other hand if they don't succeed once they will try it again it's like with the assassination attempt of the fourth of august of two thousand and eighteen against their will i see that as a distinct possibility that someone will actually assassinate model but then the problem comes what happens next you have seven eight nine million venezuelans who are. convinced. to have east us they're not going to roll over they're not going to disappear so then you
7:10 am
get a situation of a civil war or guerrilla warfare that we do not want again the best solution is dialogue and mediation like the montevideo mechanism launched by mexico on europe way i wish we had more time to go through all of the unforeseen we don't this short news are out for designers former secretary of the u.n. human rights committee and the first u.n. to visit venezuela thank you. and one of the points to this of course the u.n. security council was convened on thursday to discuss the situation in the crisis stricken country russia and the u.s. proposed their draft resolutions both rejected. by voting against this resolution some members of this council continue to shield woodrow and his cronies and prolong the suffering of the venezuelan people the time for
7:11 am
a peaceful transition to democracy is now they're going to use them with us finally we have reached the culmination of the american workers treated double standards show over venezuela washington and london have both again robbed an entire nation of billions of dollars in the same time are pushing them to accept a pittance due to regime change as they say you first of all create great humanitarian problems and then you call upon the whole world to solve them we look forward to genuinely free and fair elections. and to a government that reflects the will and aspirations of the venezuelan people. you have to do is vote is an excellent example of one of the veto rule is necessary for protection to peace and people's right to determine their future both the russian and the u.s. resolutions didn't pass the voting in the un security council the russian one got less votes in favor that against four in favor and seven against the us draft was vetoed by russia and china the russian ambassador said that if the u.s. resolution had passed it would be the first case in history that the united nations
7:12 am
security council deposed a legitimate leader and imposed another one to a sovereign country the venezuelan representatives spoke as well calling to stop interfering into the matters of his country the power to this will have to do with having this one sovereignty i live in it's one people and they behave like colonial east they are planning a plan this time to put ration against it it's what i write down at the same time that i have to. force at the same time they are just feeling out of money this is something outrageous indeed so the diplomatic community in the crossroads again the u.n. as thieves members who spoke after the voting called it to all of their colleagues to put their differences aside to resolve the venezuelan crisis reporting in new york try to be chavez r.t. now i just want to turn your attention to this a recent opinion poll suggests the public views are turning against american policy so the poll suggests that the global approval rating of the u.s.
7:13 am
leadership has fallen behind china while russia's position has also increased considerably very interesting indeed so let's bring in technology and operations management expert professor shown to the program welcome what do you think china is global leadership reading if we can start with that over growth in the u.s. in this poll. if you look at the recently development of china's economic and social political and many other measures. you could count we actually very well you know almost all aspect so if we look at the economic performance china use that knowledge a second largest. economy in the world and china is a very responsible china is helping other countries rather than. trying to
7:14 am
interfere or other countries activities so this way i seem to many countries. that use it not the us. but that if you look at the us no matter economically or politically the sooner the creature comforts us companies not only in ways that china but also always countries and many other countries and there are only there are there are mind let me just simply audience has fallen more than ten percent their rating the us you do you think professor that that that could have something to do with the story we're talking about earlier venice with the way the u.s. leadership has reacted to that to people perhaps in the u.s. see that as an invention in the way of what happened in iraq before they don't want their sons or daughters going to fight in venezuela that's how they're seeing this because it's a significant drop isnt it. yes so that drop represent the confidence
7:15 am
for around the people you know worn out towards. us president and in the future so you present you as is already becoming one them all week because it started in so many wars and political war or. trade wars so basically people lose lose confidence towards us but is it expected china to actually be there's a world and tell us that here is some of that neither to you with us so in this way i seen coming. and work there really want to see a new either actually tool to green party what you impact was going to give element. and actually you you can see that in the years that you were in technology science china's u.s. want to stop china's technology development by a rest as a center obvious sort of around while we are actually even you as
7:16 am
a minus this year put them what confidence to china and there's this deal working ways of while we used by the us what do you have. how. the western conference will be nagging at who to five why wait so basically this warning was going. it's yes you see you can order by alliance yeah yeah a lot of aspects say you're going through there thank you very much technology and operations management expert on the program the fessor live show. now i'm moving on with federal elections just months away counted as prime minister is facing calls to step down over a political scandal engulfing his government justin trudeau has been accused of quote leading a campaign of pressure against his former attorney general to prevent the prosecution of one of the country's biggest companies in quote unquote a deal and that. i experienced
7:17 am
a consistent and sustained effort by many people within the government to seek to politically interfere in an inappropriate effort to secure a deferred prosecution agreement with s. and c. level and the prime minister asked me to help out to find a solution here for s n c. well a scandal surrounds a canadian company which is one of the world's largest engineering and construction firms in twenty fifteen it was charged with bribery and fraud over the payment of nearly one hundred million dollars in box to libyan officials now the dealings allegedly involve family members of former leader moammar gadhafi they were meant to secure contracts in a lucrative irrigation project justin trudeau as the night any inappropriate behavior insisting he was just trying to save jobs. i and my staff always acted appropriately and professionally we of course had discussions about the potential loss of nine thousand jobs in communities across the country
7:18 am
including the possible impact on pensions well speaking of jobs former attorney general jodi wilson rippled resigned over the affair citing the viel to threats allegedly leveled at her by the canadian prime minister's office trudeau's principle secretary has also left his position amid reports that more officials are ready to quit the administration political analyst alice something of bruno explains why the case could cost the prime minister his job. it shows that the politics and interests do mix in canada as well as other places and this is the problem it's the image that the prime minister has built around him so for some people call it the brand of a feminist author a liberal alter a legal transparent leader who is completely tripping over his own ideals in nine ten months there will be an election in canada so no matter where this
7:19 am
goes constitutional crisis the political crisis there will be a problem in the election and just in two of those leadership is definitely in question now the idea was that it since eleven. prosecution. it might have to move headquarters away from canada so and also. the essence eleventh is in a writing where trudeau is directly involved the more writings you win the more chances you have a woman in election it must be very important for trudeau to have taken such really . amateur measures i mean he thought he could he could pressure his justice minister it's a busy friday of news we're back with more in ninety seconds. i
7:20 am
am. i do think the numbers. they matter to us is over one trillion dollars. more than ten white collar crime families. e.d. five percent of global wealth he longs to be rich eight percent world market thirty percent somewhat one hundred to five hundred three per second per second and if we rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building two point one billion dollars ai industrial park but don't let the numbers over. the only number you need to remember one one business you know board one and only whom.
7:21 am
much was expected from the noise summit there may have been goodwill on both sides but in the end neither the united states nor north korea could agree on the path forward the two sides failed to reach a common understanding of what their desired endgame for denuclearization actually ends. welcome back nominate a bid to ease the humanitarian crisis in yemen the un has raised more than two and a half billion dollars at a high level pledging event in geneva however that's well short of the target some a four billion dollars needed to fulfill this year's aid plan but perhaps even more pertinent than that many of the donor countries are ones linked to the almost four year long conflict in yemen either through fighting or selling arms.
7:22 am
middle east advisor for the norwegian refugee council karl schembri house joined calls for donor countries to stop selling arms to sew to the let's take a listen. but up almost twenty four million yemenis in need of age of some sort either because they haven't received salaries because they are sleeping hungry at night i've met children
7:23 am
a ten year old haifa who was telling me they go to sleep hungry every other day because they can't afford to have a meal every day they've been displaced multiple times they've lost their houses there is no safe place in yemen and there is not a yemeni who hasn't in one way or another witness this war be it on land and sea and air strikes artillery tanks fire it's happening every day across yemen the united states are the only be at united arab emirates and further down the road at the united kingdom they are the top dollar as they have been traditionally the was more generous in funding its area in aid for yemen but at the same time they are also the most active directory or in directing it with the sales of weapons or dropping off bombs directly on the yemeni civilians so we're calling for him and so the hypocrisy ended up less if he also feeding with one hand the yemenis to keep them alive destroying their cancer with the other why the aid is desperately
7:24 am
needed they themselves are creating the need for that states through the war through the fighting through the blockade of of yemen these weapons this fighting is having a direct impact on women children and civilians who have absolutely no stay in this conflict. harvard university in the u.s. is launching a probe after a chrissy t. attack on the campus call for one of its law professors to resign it comes after faculty rummel sullivan decided to join the legal team representing disgraced hollywood film producer harvey weinstein and he said he has more. down with the dean doesn't care these are just some of the angry slogans held by protesters on campus at harvard university why the meeting me if meant it to me to me to me to be to me to me to me who. only this time the accused has not been inappropriate towards women the right side with
7:25 am
disgraced movie mogul harvey weinstein has assembled his legal dream team he can afford the best and that includes a top harvard law school professor ronald seven he's tried to explain the simple right to a fair trial but the students are having none of it it's particularly important for this category of the defendant to receive the same process as everyone else perhaps even more important to the degree we deny unpopular defendant basic due process rights we cease to be the country we imagine ourselves to be. he's got a point everyone accused of a crime is entitled to the best legal defense they can get even weinstein who isn't even the most notorious to of sullivan's catalogue of controversial clients but some students have taken the cue from what would you rather have a client who committed a crime mahlum in say or malum prohibitum needs are the ones that.
7:26 am
i would rather have a client he's innocent that beam that is of outrage you have failed the black women in this community not only as one of the few black faculty deans on campus but also as a community leader someone who were inspected and looked to for guidance and even a petition online calling percent of and resignation with the escalation on campus of its administration and starting a climate review of the house after which it promises appropriate action as dean of the college one of my highest priorities is to ensure that the support students receive for their is additional communities pulls institutional commitment to their well being if awards plaudits and legal winds are anything to go by sullivan's track record is formidable but when you're signed up by an unpopular defendant like weinstein even the best legal reputation can bite the dust in the unforgiving court of public opinion yes everybody has
7:27 am
a right to legal defense but not really everybody in america this is the precedent that's been set only some people have a right to a legal defense only some people have the right to an attorney only some people have the right to representation yes harvey weinstein's crimes are regis granted but it's setting a precedent to say that if we don't like if we don't approve of what you've done then you're not worthy of the bill of rights and of the united states i think it just goes to show the downfall in the trajectory of top american law schools there's very little competition because of this atmosphere in the united states on university campuses where so many. students need to not be traumatized can't be around things that they don't agree with socially or politically i mean at the very essence of what you're going to school to become which as an attorney is debate is competition is arguing for your points is being around places where they're going to be challenges and so if you're going to a school to become that you have to be able to not only speak your mind but to understand why you're becoming an attorney. did
7:28 am
a lot of the bigger stories of the week know an indian fighter pilot shot john and captured by pakistanis jus to be released and sent back to india today this is the pakistan indian border where we believe a convoy with the pilot has just written the pakistani prime minister described the move as a peace gesture the tension between the two nuclear countries has escalated in recent weeks well let's cross live now to local journalist java durand who's on the border for his job tell us what's happening there. well this is an extraordinary ok . he's just on the hof our government of pakistan india i did time grandpapas on how to quit etch in the tactical police didn't do it in the last couple of beers but nonetheless focus on decided to handle india as if this gesture and i think i'm somehow made it very clear that defined the book of these are armed and
7:29 am
if all of weighing border tension the limits of dead is a possibility off a nuclear conflict definite apapa solve all costs and then we showed peace gesture and decided to hand him over to india i think into the primary also because of the fact that the u.a.e. . and the us. there will think it will give us the missing the boat government that they need to pull back from the high border tension because of blocking things had a bad place the other troops on the white house. and there was there was or didn't get off their phones will be going to be in the convention wars which were bad possibly records a nuclear war so i think because of these designs. had destroyed the flight you kind of the small of the box things getting on india that is not being seen in five to songwriting was boxed on was expected and that. they are saying that this is one
7:30 am
of things above this or just your piece just to nonetheless this is an extraordinary development because a blast going beneath would have had a while which could have led. to a nuclear conflict because pockets on had also been a factor that people you were devices which can it can you almost possibly within many of us or frankly five kilometers in indeed disputed kashmir valley that is that is it would be dangerous not do you. possibly for what would you have the balls been a different ball game which we're putting on one of those things so in a better fit joe i think one thing not healthy thank you very much for the op to speak to islam who are not very far from the border where the pilot is too to be passed over to a local journalist job and run a. well that is our lot for now i'll see you in thirty.
