another turbulence week for venezuela both russian and u.s. resolutions to resolve the country's crisis failed at the u.n. security council by washington's economic pressure. to transfer the european h.q. of its main all firm to moscow. france sees a sixteenth weekend of yellow vest movement unrest with police there resorting to tear gas and water cannon against the protest. as the u.s. and north korean leaders hold their second summit but failed to reach a deal on denuclearization accusing each other of unreasonable demands.
great to have you with us midnight here in moscow this is the weekly art. the u.s. has formed a coalition to hand over power in venezuela from the current leader nicolas maduro to the self-proclaimed president that's according to the u.s. security advisor john bolton who says that the plan is very peaceful transition of power. so i'd like to see as broad a coalition as we can put together to replace me to replace the whole corrupt regime work in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine it's been the objective of american presidents going back to ronald reagan to have a completely democratic chemistry or the monroe doctrine was unveiled by president james monroe in the nineteenth century and it attempts to stop any european interference on the american continent and that declaration that any such action is
seen as on friendly towards the united states many interpret the doctrine of simply being an assertion of complete us hegemony over the entire western hemisphere while the associate professor at george mason university says that such a nineteenth century principles have got no place in the modern world they're barely in the final banter. but the foundations of the markets the without and so to negotiation baby international community the demand for doubt i mean it was. a period where there were some international and europe was agreeing with america for the americans leaving the united states dealing with the issues of the western hemisphere today we're talking about a multi partner world and i don't really know why i would i mean what would that mean even if america can be only for americans when you're talking about a world that's more globalized when other countries also have interest in the
americas economic interests very important economic interests. the border between venezuela and colombia witness further violence this week as tensions over american aid deliveries intensified and as well in president nicolas maduro has blocked the shipments from entering claiming they could be carrying weapons and international efforts to end the crisis of stalled with the un security council rejecting draft resolutions from both russia and the us. by voting against this resolution some members of this council continue to shield the duro and his cronies and prolong the suffering of the venezuelan people the time for a peaceful transition to democracy is now the can use them with us mind we have reached the culmination of the american workers treated double standards show over venezuela washington and london have both again robs an entire nation out of billions of dollars in the same time or pushing them to accept a pittance due to regime change as they say you first of all we greet 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 protecting the 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 security council deposed a legitimate leader and imposed another one to a sovereign country the venezuelan representatives folk as well calling to stop interfering in the matters of his country the power to this will has to do with having a swell and so very at the end of an assault on people they behave like colonial east they are planning a clandestine operation against it
a sort of right out of the same kind of talking about what he thought and therefore at the same time they are just feeling out of money you see 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 treated each other as r.t. . anymore hundreds of activists have rallied in the spanish capital madrid in support of president maduro demonstrators there wave hands off venezuela banners and denounce what they see as an attempt by the u.s. to intervene in another country's internal affairs for designers who visited venezuela as a un rapporteurs in two thousand and seventeen believes that washington is likely to escalate the situation. quite clear to me that the united states is waging war on international law now that trump does that does not surprise me question is
what will the. international prize in pristina be for the united states will the united states take the risk of a flagrant aggression against venezuela where there is a danger of violence and it should be the function of the united nations to prevent that nicolas maduro says that washington has its science firmly set on venezuela's all reserves the largest in the world u.s. sanctions have already blocked seven billion dollars worth of state owned assets and in a proactive move venezuela ordered the state oil company's european headquarters to be relocated to moscow vice president has told us more about that decision. it over there in fact the americans are pursuing a predatory policy appropriating venezuela's assets and therefore violating the legitimate interests of our country violates all existing international investment groups aswell europe where venezuela's accounts were frozen we have already begun
to take specific legal steps we hired lawyers to protect our interests primarily with regard to our gold which is now illegal withheld by the bank of england we also began to take measures for of in these wells legal protection we're talking about the theft of these well and assets which was organized by the united states and venezuela has the right to protect its legitimate interests as for the transfer of the d.v.d.'s a office from europe to moscow this is connected with the expansion of the corporation of the russian company in the for the ground there and the feel of oil and gas together with the european office of d.b.s. a other branches of the company will also move to moscow. united states is also canceled visas of fourteen influential venezuelans aligned with president says that anyone who steals from the venezuelan people or democracy is not welcome and cisco domingo's head of latin american studies at london's middlesex university believes the u.s.
is doing everything in its power to achieve its goal in venezuela. people in venezuela particularly the military sevigny ryan says soldiers drawn the pressure from the united states in particular almost exclusively on the military literally. true three years again and again through those who are shown. through blackmail you name it got those words where's it going on behind the scenes as all foreign they go almost nothing listen to me lo these raises the specter or something. which can be organized irregular forces and training and organized by the united states and mr abrams is exactly the get it organized so this is just concerned therefore that confirms not only the way the law is if it is the united states going to school something much more dramatic. for the sixteenth
straight weekend yellow vest marches have been held in cities across france clashes erupted at some of those demonstrations on saturday with the police deploying tear gas and water cannon. forty thousand people are said to taken part in ma and she's nationwide with four thousand of them in paris on friday president again appealed for calm urging people to refrain from the sort of violence seen in previous weeks police made several arrests on saturday while the yellow vests began as a grassroots rally of the fuel taxes it is says broadened into wider anger at the
president's handling of the economy. because they should at least meet one of our demands to show they are listening to us that we are not doing this for nothing that fuel prices are rising and they were supposed to be frozen where all the prices are increasing in the supermarkets to ensure ten percent on products it's the opposite of what we want. well that's what we want them to give the purchasing power back to the people of the lower fat on such a crowd it was the greatest the citizens initiative referendum those are the two essential demands as long as they don't give us that we belong. to the success of this that people in difficult times have a hard time surviving and. i think the constant and the masses and masses of. the have many different messages.
south asian politics and security experts how melinda miserably said there may be a foreign power behind the conflict. what we are seeing at the moment is the low intensity conflict on the ground and this is going to go on so what you need to remember here is that although the pakistani prime minister region the indian kaptchuk pilot has ecclesiastes there's a lot of history at the high end that i'm back has to do with the phrase he's personally coming from the united states saudi arabia united i mean it's kind of forced pakistan to take the course you said that it took neither of these parties want to. go down the piece on in pakistan the army has the state so there is a military establishment we choose their whole walk on india we have enough stylists in the volunteers and the body which is craving for some kind of confrontation that box from which you give it to crack someone to marvel is in the forthcoming election. donald trump has dedicated much of
that you going to be the person that's like the most all three of them all can't be good. i'm interested always in the logs about how. they sit. welcome back on thursday donald trump adult korean leader kim. jungen along with their retinues and thousands of journalists descended on the capital of vietnam for a bilateral summit the much hyped talks failed though to reduce any deal on north korea's denuclearization or the lifting of u.s. sanctions against pyongyang with trump and kim just unable to agree on terms but despite little headway washington pyongyang did say that the dialogue will continue as an apparent goodwill gesture to the u.s.
and south korea are suspending their annual joint military exercises the pentagon says this is to reduce tension and advance denuclearization on the korean peninsula but the drills have not in fact been counseled rather replaced by another set of exercises on t. scale or more pin take stock of the second some of. the talks in hanoi between trump and care more complete failure a blowout bob trump says the talks failed because of what he says were unreasonable demands they wanted the sanctions lifted. in their entirety and we couldn't do that but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting because what we proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but they were partial removal we proposed to the united states to leave articles of sanctions that impede the symbol of economy and the law of our people so with conflicting information about what actually took place at the meeting between the two leaders we've now got the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped
in hanoi child jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing a song of peace as he praised the troops america does not see conflict but if we are forced to defend ourselves we will fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows about in nobody wants to play with you would think that with the utter trainwreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donald trump would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's good that the president did not get in anything was a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know they've got they want and gradually they will see they are sanctions regime begin
to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of arkansas mark prosperity that could be possible is a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly flawed democratic presidential candidate gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming. and waging a regime change war in north korea so well you know i'm deeply concerned about the fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change war policy might pompei o laid out the washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w.
bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to winning nobel peace prize anytime soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok mop and artsy new york political experts told us the terms of ministrations hawkish then sells well. north korea's trust in white house promises. it was not no deal versus bad deal it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there is a crisis in confidence between north korea in the us you know kim knows what's going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word around the world trump
is going to trying to show success. he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions in in vietnam over over north korea missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter political turmoil he's facing back home but if we've taken over isis in syria then the question remains what about the troops u.s. troops who are there in syria what will happen with them those are questions that remain unanswered bike at home veering off script donald trump's given a two hour speech at the conservative political action conference but it seems that there's been little change to the topics with the russia probe still dominating.
america is winning again. is respected again. these say something like russia if you can get us hillary clinton. so everybody's having a good time mom laugh and we're all having fun and that c.n.n. and others. russia. collusion with russia collusion delusion. and a nasty business transaction with robert. i said why isn't. he wanted the job is f.b.i. director i mean these are things that. it was
in america first in many cases it was america last we are reversing decades of blunders and betrayals you know i'm totally off script right now. and this is how i got elected by being off script. and russia's hand was apparently also found with let me put in accused of being the man behind the speech . how many pieces parts of president putin's to do less was president trying trying to accomplish today he was also saying things that really look like whining or putin scripted his speech these people some of them millionaires billionaires the best the brightest squad made up giving you the best and they actually said that nobody came in with a hawk nobody no white coat came in is sedated them and say would you lads when you
were at least wait let the russian thing go home now i'm not trying to tell people what to do but one could argue that there are some things that president dr has said that might be care isapi kende controversial you're my one to go there this is trump arrangement but there is a trump high finned putin hyphen russia during syndrome this is a preoccupation a pavlovian obeys and it's this weird kind of a connection it's an obsession an obsessive compulsive. reaction that they can not let go we all the u.s. media continues to hunt for a link between the president of putin don toms disgraced former lawyer michael cohen has failed to provide any evidence of collusion with russia when he testified before congress on wednesday members of the house accused him of being
a liar cohen a previously pleaded guilty to lying to congress about some supposed the connections to moscow this time though he pulled no punches when talking about his former boss. today i am here to tell the truth about. he is a racist. is a con man. and he is a cheat mr trump knew of and directed the trump moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it and i have never asked for nor would i accept a pardon from president trump ladies and gentlemen how on earth is this witness credible he's a fake witness the presence here is a travesty and you have a history of lying over and over and over again he said we were in charge of the truth i don't believe that michael coleman is capable of telling the truth he lied to congress through false statements in a written statement he lied to congress through his testimony able to fight his
false statements by releasing him refuting his lies to the public with. because it . was a trump confidant for more than a decade after his moment in the spotlight to begin a three year prison sentence in the spring house for tax and bank fraud as well as lying to congress we discussed his testimony with former us republican congressman michael patrick flanagan. as we call it in the united states when election season comes near we call it the silly season and in the silly season silly things happen this is a little early. something that you'd see in the silly season cohen is willing to use the word racist and criminal when liar and anyone who's willing to speak in that absolute in that strongest terms in washington will always have an audience on one side or the other there was just an angry man who wanted to be chief of staff who didn't get to be chief of staff who was furious he couldn't make a ton of money off the trump name after trump was elected president has decided
after all that he needs to get even in a vicious new york stupid sort of way and so he's going to come to congress and lie some more he's been disbarred for lying to the state of new york to spar they pulled his law license because he's a liar a man who took their promise who took that oath and then took another oath in front of congress and has lied constantly can't be trusted ever to tell the truth even if he is telling the truth it will require cooperation substantiation and some backup and none of that was provided and staying with us is eating an international updates coming your way at the top of the hour. you know will number one murder capital in united states we all slow number
