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 desire for denuclearization actually is. venezuela moves to protect its assets by ordering the state oil companies european h.q. to move to moscow amid concerns shared by russia over u.s. led attempts to destabilize the country. clear was going on you last is seeking to arm terrorist groups in order to destabilize undermine or create tensions and situations that might trigger the u.s. wants an explosion. to justify military. an indian pilot captured by pakistan is. with emerges in germany's.
international i'm sean thomas glad to have you with us. the president of crisis stricken venezuela has ordered the european headquarters of the country's state oil company figures in europe sided with the u.s. in backing self-proclaimed interim leader. who they want to run the major oil exporter at a news briefing with the russian foreign minister the venezuelan vice president said her country does not trust u.s. allies in europe. the relocation of p.d. from europe all see that's been a part of our plans in terms of deepening relations with russian companies like gross math and gas problem europe has not given us enough for sure and says that he will respect our assets look at the bank of england which is we holding venice
while in gold there has been an armed robbery. and we want to ensure our relationship with russia and us that israel has the largest oil reserves in the world u.s. sanctions have blocked seven billion dollars worth of the state owned companies assets russia says it shares venezuela's concerns over u.s. led attempts to destabilize the country is artie's my financial. friday's visit delvin as well as vice president to moscow has become yet another one in a series of meetings between high ranking officials from russia and this latin american country here in the russian capital meetings to show solidarity and ensure support of course russia is among the countries totally and fully back in venezuela defending its sovereignty and protecting its future and maids as foreign minister lavrov has said today cynical complain aimed at overthrow the illegitimate 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 has specially when the u.s. special envoy on 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 especially after america's president trumps claiming that all the options are on the table meaning including military operation armed operation in venice is well worth it when i'm on your way to there's a concerted effort they're seeking to justify an international intervention in venezuela being headed by due west and their regime change doctrine this is nothing
new we've seen these tactics in syria and other countries the person in charge of action against been as well is known for their subversive activities and attacked in foreign states and i asked 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 peace. which it's no coincidence that we heard venezuela is not. the only goals cuba nicaragua roma arisan and if the u.s. doesn't like someone else tomorrow if they say the election results in any country don't meet democratic standards and i'm sorry no it's a 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 the u.s. special envoy for venezuela was asked about the russian foreign minister is warning
that washington is planning military intervention. foreign minister 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 it's you know we'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 could not reach that conclusion 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 about the aid because back in the one nine hundred eighty s. abrams defended smuggling weapons to nicaraguan rebels disguised as when he was assistant secretary of state after announcing the new restrictions abrams was
pressed by an associated press reporter about whether garrido is running out of steam and the effect of american officials threatening language towards madeira. i'm wondering are you guys you can leave the administration at all concerned when the recognition is that is losing some money where he's certainly not taking the national security adviser's advice to the beach outside of it as well i wish him a long quiet retirement on a pretty beach far from venezuela and the sooner he takes advantage of that the center is likely to have a nice quiet retirement on a pretty beach rather than being in some other beach area like guantanamo so are you concerned that you're losing momentum and then such and relieve that. there is one member of congress a particular set a senator who has suggested the need to saying fate as good off the libya and 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 then 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 off he do that does that help your cause 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 much that it comes to an end quickly and peacefully he's suffered a setback and said but not only by the united states and they should it's an amazing meeting we know when isn't it stated what it was that it's trying to get a these are guys this is brittle nine's why don't they and then later the man in the united nations security council clients and being defeated on that took a stance and then didn't push on it clinton said of the predatory the violent push
to try to brain to maintain his form one thing called unity that in one thing to coalesce all. mr really know one way to go is i was in a country and many of the bush years. of the socially are not written as such because they live in a sort of completely. while the u.s. has also canceled the visas of forty nine venezuelan representatives aligned with president nicolas maduro according to the department of state people that steal from the venezuelan people or undermine democracy are not welcome in the united states special envoy abrams said that the restrictions are intended to punish people who have prospered amid the south american countries dire economic crisis the head of latin american studies at london's middlesex university francisco domingo's believes u.s. efforts have been mostly ineffective. the people in venezuela deeply the minute
she see if you can ions the soldiers the pressure from the united states in particular almost exclusively on the military literally. three years again and again through those who are shown. through that maybe you name it got those words what is it going on behind the scenes and so far they go almost nothing and mr abrams is exactly the person to actually get it organized so this is just concerned therefore that confirms not only the way the law is defeated but the united states going to school something much more dramatic. an indian fighter pilot who was captured by pakistan after his jet was shot down has been returned to his home country of the transfer held at the border between the two countries it was televised live just as prime minister described the pilot's release as a piece of tension between the two nuclear countries has escalated in recent weeks
and pakistan also released a video recording made of the pilot while he was in their custody. york which went in i was trying to look for the target when i was shot down by the pakistani air force as soon as i rejected my parachute opened and i came down i had a pistol with me because i tried to run and people changed their emotions were running high then two pakistani army officials came to save me standing army captain save me from the people and did not let any harm come to me but they took me to their unit and i was given first aid. or reporting from pakistan here as a local journalist jarhead. that. decided to end up because as the lord will let me put it up and elsewhere in the world know that pakistan believes in shorting the regular enemy of the other by running in the other militant god you know. underdog are both going to call the rest of the better off their walls nor the result which was here i'll do. i think what everybody else
you don't focus on to tell your. opinion so i helped this in unified the whole barber service model on decided well go vote for number most of these signatures and the wives. i wish to assure the nation that we are fully prepared and in the hunt in studio to do this to spawn any group by pakistan could you envision all out war between india and pakistan i hope not. that would be mutual suicide meanwhile it appears the clashes between india and pakistan are not over media reports that say at least seven were killed by an exchange of fire in indian controlled kashmir on friday civilians were among the casualties security forces have launched a search operations as there are reports of a rebel presence in the area locals shared their fears over the growing conflict.
i'm here to tell you the only victim limiting. the assuming indeed he does is a bad thing that we begin. to do you think and even then it's on us not even under the sun and yes night it was earlier this and that but. not of bank good enough of what it means to be queen mother to humanity i might monday if i move quickly to ninety with tensions have been escalating since february fourteenth when a vehicle filled with explosives rushed into an indian police convoy killing over forty people a pakistan based a terrorist group it took responsibility for the attack in disputed kashmir the status of the region has been an insurmountable obstacle between india and pakistan for decades.
this is a very dangerous situation because both these countries have nuclear weapons right up against each other all of 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 such a cautious imran khan said would be college and given the huge numbers of people who live within range of these missiles. there is a split in germany's governing coalition 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 blamed and the phrase was initially introduced as a temporary measure and is due to be revealed 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 participates in a european or supra national project then partner should find common rules
otherwise such projects could take place without germany in the future will britain and france have already urged germany to exempt big defense projects from the moratorium or risk damaging its commercial credibility that is partially because top british defense firm be a systems could suffer as the result of german sales suspension a saudi arabia has been involved in yemen for around three years now and the country has become one of the largest arms importers in the world most of the weapons saudi arabia purchases come from 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 campaign in yemen has led it to being a branded the worst humanitarian crisis since the second world war saudi officials insist though that they do investigate all reports of civilian casualties.
we heard from martin dolts or who is a member of the state parliament he suspects elements of the coalition are trying to circumvent rules on weapons sales. drew this is the international cooperation colonel at the consular tips they want to go around the restraint to if german exports regulations in this no 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 argument that international cooperation should be saved through no more limiting the next falls or arms sales to saudi arabia is just some kind of a or
a trick of course it will be consequences for example of a weapon exports which are literally true durable 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 the weapon industry because they have common interests as well so it will effect a little bit but one final report on an alleged chemical weapons attack on the syrian town of duma in april two thousand and eighteen the report by the chemical weapons watchdog finds it reasonable grounds to believe that chlorine was used in the attack on t.v. was done of has commentary. it was a long time as some probe often hobbled by all the dangers faced during the investigators on the ground but finally we have a more than a hundred page long report carefully unweaving the facts not to point the finger of
blame but to establish what happened the verdict chlorine the banned chemical substance was used in duma amid moscow's warnings of an impeding toxic provocation by anti government forces militant groups in eastern guta are preparing a provocation with the use of chemical weapons to blame the syrian government for a chemical attack western nations will use reviewing casualties to accuse the syrian leadership of using chemical weapons against its own people again it wasn't the o.p.c. w.'s job to assign blame so they didn't an important new one since both the government forces as well as their enemy have the capability to use chlorine the government on one hand and a little sort of witches or gave the asian dick the irish by the will. or having deep capability to produce weaponized chlorine the report
details the course of the probe the investigators talked to many who witnessed the aftermath of the attack and in particular these events at the local hospital that were sold to the world as the gruesome truth about the incident the area was being heavily bombarded at the time amid the ongoing clashes sold the medical facility was indeed packed yet according to what the u. o.p.c. w. learnt the footage that circulated right after the attack was not consistent with that expected from a chemical attack according to doctors there some doctors had never even heard of the events shown in the video yet another bit of. proof that the initial video from the hospital could have been a hoax after almost six months of investigations i can prove without a doubt that the duma hospital scene was staged no fatalities occurred in the
hospital that was a b.b.c. producer for you an employee of the channel there was among those happy to use the video as the real thing to cover the story disturbing reports of a chemical weapons attack chemical attack carried out by the acid regime the medics are doing more damage but they're overwhelmed dozens of people have been killed due to poison gas almost a year since the attack still no definitive proof to tie the syrian government to it but who cares anyway the sentence had already been delivered and carried out by the u.s. and its allies missiles. the canadian government has confirmed that the u.s. has provided enough evidence to begin the extradition process of weiwei executive. today department of justice canada officials issued an authority to proceed formally commencing an extradition process in the 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 state 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 then one joe was arrested and counted then december they were qwest of united states washington accuses the business woman of violating american sanctions against iran later she was released on bail but had to stay in vancouver awaiting a final decision. while way has just released a statement expressing disappointment in the canadian decision the company also recalled president trump saying that he could interfere in the case if it helps trade deal between the washington and. parties while way stressed that the u.s. and canadian actions against mang are illegitimate
a position shared by chinese authorities know much 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 be release man one shot and protect him it just cement rice will so strongly edge the u.s. to immediately corrects the mistake was the arrest warrant against man one show and not make a formal extradition request to canada. economist jeffrey albert tucker thinks the u.s. wants to use manning as a pawn in negotiations with beijing. i mean this is just obviously an act of political violence of 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 unlatched last to ditch effort american imperialism and really quite appalling i think it's it's deeply embarrassing for america so to use human
beings as kind of fodder and and a trade war is appalling and let me be clear about this when i say trade war i don't mean just sides fighting this is an aggressive and pointless american attack on china on a previously mutually beneficial relationship completely a reflection of a new ideology in washington and that's being stalked by fears about the next stage of geo political reality there is no international law judge in this there's there's nothing that binds china is just ridiculous it's really an and forcible except by this kind of egregious acts of political violence. well it is no secret that hungary's prime minister is not exactly best friends with brussels but it seems viktor or bonds the latest anti e.u. drive is proving a step too far he is accused of deliberately distorting the facts about the blocks migration policy in a public campaign. thank
