lavrov has said today cynical complain aimed at overthrowing legitimate authorities of venezuela using open threats including one of a military intervention. knowing the approach of the current us administration i wouldn't be surprised if it takes action that violates any reasonable standards of international law especially when the u.s. special envoy in venezuela at the u.n. elliot abrams makes no secret that his functions don't include looking for a peaceful settlement he only creates tensions and situations that might trigger as the u.s. wants an explosion and bloodbath in venezuela to justify military interference needless to say a lot has been said about the possibility of military intervention of course that's as passionately after america's president trumps claiming that all the options are on the table meaning including military operation armed operation in venice is well
7:04 pm

the country's army are as united as never before in fighting for their future and peace. u.s. special envoy for venezuela was asked about the russian foreign minister's warning that washington is planning military intervention. for mr lavrov for. fifteen years. known him for quite a while i don't. think he actually believes that we're attempting to to do that and i think is you know you're not it to you that we continue to say and we always will that all options are on the table because they always are but i think anyone who actually looks at american policy in venezuela would not reach that conclusion. or abrams announced a new u.s. sanctions on six individuals from venezuelan security forces for not allowing u.s. aid convoys into the country last week president maduro is concerned as to

7:07 pm
a senator who has suggested the might meet the same fate as good off the libya and i just that help or hurt you or your cause or your efforts to build momentum. i'm not actually going to get into that commenting on what particular senators are saying forget it. forget it forget the line about any senator to do comparisons between with duro and and suggesting that he might meet the fate of that office that does that help your. i'm not going to get into that other than to say that i think that. dictatorships come to an end some last for a very long time. others a much shorter time this one in venezuela will also come to an end we hope that it comes to an end quickly and peacefully these somethings said about it said but not only by the united states and they should remain to see meetings need to win as it

7:14 pm
up against each other over all the bristles with troops and suspicion and so if we think back safe of the cuban missile crisis in one nine hundred sixty two whatever with tensions between moscow and washington american and soviet soldiers didn't shoot at each other in more recent times in korea huge tension between north korea and the americans but there's been no shooting here we've actually had casualties and so the risk of things spiralling out of control because somebody is trigger happy or somebody makes a miscalculation is really a very serious one and that's why of course china russia and america and other countries around the world are very worried because of imran khan said would be college and a test for the people in the huge numbers of people who live within range of these missiles. there's a split in germany's a governing coalition or with of the two main parties at odds over whether to prolong the freeze of arms sales to saudi arabia they were initially halted in response to the brutal killing of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi for which several saudi officials were blocked of the freeze was initially introduced as
7:15 pm
a temporary measure and is due to be evaluated in a few days the social democratic party has expressed its concern over saudi arabia's involvement in the war in yemen where there are numerous reports of civilian casualties while the conservatives argue that by halting saudi arms sales germany risks losing the trust of its international partners. if germany purchase a place in a european or supra national project then partner should find common rules otherwise such projects could take place without germany in the future or britain and france have already urged to germany to exempt big defense projects from the moratorium or to risk damaging its commercial credibility that is partially because top british defense firm be a e systems could suffer as the result of the german sales suspension a saudi arabia has been involved in yemen for around three full years now the country has become one of the largest arms importers in the world most of the
7:16 pm
weapons in saudi arabia purchases come from a britain and the united states german arms sales to the country had been steadily growing until they were frozen late last year all the while the saudi led it campaign in yemen has led it to being branded the worst humanitarian crisis since the second world war and saudi officials insist they investigate all reports of severe civilian casualties. and we heard from martin who is an m.p. and hamburg's state parliament he suspects elements of the coalition are inflating reasons just to secure weapons exports. drew this is the international cooperation crime carnival at the consular tips they want to go around the
7:17 pm
restraint to if germany exploit regulations in this novel because we have some kind of restrictive regulations which do not forbid it salience a weapon exports but if it's regulations which at least limit and now the document that international cooperation should be saved through no more limiting the next polls or arms sales to saudi arabia is just some kind of a or a trick of course there will be consequences for example of weapon exports which are literally true literal will are not to be conducted that easy like before with the restrictions from germany but i think it will out the corporations and between the. companies in a weapon industry because they have common interests as well so it will effect a little bit but not that much. global chemical weapons watchdog has finally
7:18 pm
issued its report on an alleged chemical attack in syria last year i will tell you about their conclusion when we return stay with us for watching a contraction. 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. lost its moral compass and maybe if to put more values into the system my true snooping in this we have to string some multinational multilateral institutions living in the dark ruled it's like room lucille skiing having always.
7:19 pm
action and come to action we need to put back to the system and we need stronger leadership and better leadership. and welcome back this is international so the canadian government has confirmed that the us has provided enough evidence to begin the extradition process of while way executive. today department of justice canada fishel issued an authority to proceed formally commencing an extradition process in the
7:20 pm
case of miss maine one jo the decision follows a thorough a diligent review of the evidence in this case the next step in the case is as follows the british columbia supreme court has scheduled an appearance date for march sixth twenty nineteen at ten am to confirm that an authority to proceed has been issued and to schedule the date for the extradition hearing when long joe is arrested in canada in december at the request of the united states washington accuses the businesswoman of violating american sanctions against iran later she was released on bail but had to stand vancouver awaiting a final decision china considers the us and canadian actions against manning to be diligent. anyone with normal judgment can see that canada has made a serious mistake on this issue from the very beginning we edged the canadian side to me to leave release man one shot and protect him it just meant writes will so
7:21 pm
strong the edge the u.s. to immediately cracks the mistake was draw the arrest warrant against man one show and not make a formal extradition request to canada and. now we are joined by jeffrey albert tucker who's a member of the editorial or the editorial director of the american institute for economic research thanks for being with us here on r.t. international. so the canadians they say that they have sufficient evidence for a judge to rule on the extradition do you think men will ultimately be sent to the u.s. . the way things are going right now and it appears to be so as remarkable as it is that seems i mean this is just obviously an act of political violence at some level and deeply embarrassing to a country that believes in human rights and free enterprise while way as an international company with very complicated deal ins all over the world and of
7:22 pm
course if you've got a political enemy out of there out there somewhere that anybody can drum up any kind of charges against you i'm sorry that canada is going along with this but it's seems like it's a latch last ditch effort of american imperialism and really quite appalling i think it's it's deeply embarrassing for america if any americans actually cared about it so how tied in this. trade dispute with is this site let me or is this just a negotiating tactic for the us. and certainly has but it's mitts a very aggressive one because it involves actual human beings these are human lives and great entrepreneurs who are building no great businesses an advance in the world through it's a next stage of prosperity so to use human beings as kind of fodder and edge in a trade war is appalling and let me be clear about this when i say trade war i don't mean just to fight sides fighting this is an aggressive and pointless
7:23 pm
american attack on china on a previously mutually beneficial relationship completely a reflection of a new ideology in washington and it's being stalked by fears about the next stage of geo political reality so it's a reactionary move if you see what i mean we yeah about that geo political reality . is accused of violating u.s. sanctions on iran. united states has withdrawn from the iran deal if you will what gives the u.s. jurisdiction to charge or i mean these are not international sanctions. ok this is the question of the day it's really this is just kind of i guess what they used to call a nineteenth century gunboat diplomacy there is no international law judge in this there's there's nothing that binds china and it's no us law binds china it's
7:24 pm
relationships with iran and iran is a modernizing country and my own view on this is that we need normal trade relations and it's ridiculous at this point in the twenty first century to cordon off one territory and say no one in the world must deal with with this. is just ridiculous it's really an and forcible except by this kind of egregious acts in a political violence and i. am deeply embarrassed as speaking as an american that this kind of thing is going on while way as is a is a company that's more advanced really than any american company and technologically speaking and then terms of market share even and i think that's really what's behind this it's a kind of a reactionary move. that really does nothing to advance world prosperity and i would love a shift in attitude on the part of washington and briefly because we're coming to the end of our half hour here how this other play out. well
7:25 pm
you know i think that world opinion is definitely against the u.s. actions at this point whether the u.s. actually has leadership that cares i don't know but time is not on the u.s. side the economy will be globalized even if this particular action is successful i think it really counts against the u.s. and world and in the long term china has been to the demand. you know what's interesting about this is i think something tells me and my contacts with the trumpet ministrations suggest to me that trump is very very anxious for a deal and i hope this is right i don't see that it really has in the alternative so i'm expecting for there to be some peaceful revolution resolution to this problem and if that doesn't happen i really dread the consequences for the world economic order are honestly all right jeffrey albert tucker editorial director of the american institute for economic research i'm sorry that we have to end it there
7:26 pm
because this is a fascinating topic but thanks for helping us rather mizer at it my pleasure. right watch march international more news from downstairs. banks geysers financial collapse you know they say money the bellatrix. lestrange it easy this is a central bank support diet plan is going to call them right now so you stop to. do before you came here where did you work before you came here when you live well death row in many us states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend years waiting for execution but most of the time the victims' families they are very much in favor of the death penalty there are some people
7:27 pm
because of what they did have given up the right to live among us some are even proven innocent off to years on death row and how many more tolerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to sort of go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and the fresh perspective i'm used to surprising us all or nothing if you think. i'm going to talk about football narvi or else if you think i was going to go.
7:28 pm
by the way ways of the flying here. hello and welcome to cross talk where all things considered i'm peter lavelle 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 is. crosstalk in the noise summit i'm joined by my guest john merrill in washington he is the former chief of the north east asia division of the bureau of intelligence

7:30 pm
the north koreans more than anything else want security and that was one of the huge disconnects watching this failed summit go ahead michael. yeah i think that i think you're absolutely right security is uppermost in their mind. kim jong un actually was invited vietnam to view some fact.
