a very warm welcome to you you're watching r.t. international with me making arrant our top story this hour britain's prime minister has visited souls' brewery one year after the poisoning that a former russian double agent so a script pal and his daughter yulia to reason may say is the city is recovering from the incidents that has been a tremendous effort here in salzburg the decontamination has now been completed that's a key moment for this city in order to move on and recover from what took place last year well twelve months on questions continue to circulate around the events of march the twenty eighteen russia refutes the u.k.'s continued insistence that moscow is to blame for the poisoning with the kremlin noting that the most basic questions on the incident remain unanswered from salisbury his artie's polly boyo. i've been talking to some of the people here and many of them say they're still processing what happened take
a lesson so. be sure. to cheat your. little. two three four i mean you really get it it's part of you made people see so. i put my bike cram there the everyday life what's a mobile supporter with me so i just went straight back in for y. so i wouldn't pick anything up any more not less than i'm true to contamination is complete that's true i don't think so is me saying well one year ago you'd be hard pressed to find many people outside the u.k. that knew much about the town of souls very or perhaps the height of the spier of the famous cathedral here but the attack against the script files that took place have put this place on the map and the international scandal that ensued has really ensured that sols berry has stayed rather famous it was here it was actually on
a park bench on this green that on the fourth of march last year so gay and his daughter yulia scrip are were discovered slumped unconscious they were taken to hospital and pretty soon afterwards it became clear that this wasn't an ordinary medical incident that they were dealing with the script had been poisoned with military grade nerve agent and pretty soon after that the prime minister to resign made pinned the finger of blame squarely on most and there were diplomatic expulsions and award says the kremlin dispatched a hit squad to come here russian military agents arrived in seoul very they say shortly before the poisoning took place they were with a toxic nerve agent and this is something that most codes in ny and continues to press for information and access to the. investigation is saying that actually two russian nationals are involved here and we know nothing about what's happened to
them take a listen to the russian foreign ministry spokesperson if people in the west in the u.k. in washington and brussels think russia will just let the slide they are mistaken sergey script files nice victorious great power has also been talking at a press conference in moscow and she says that she still can't get a hold of her relatives and she's been denied any information about how they're doing or their whereabouts take a listen. to the british embassy have been telling me since day one that it cannot help me that i have to call the russian embassy in the u.k. under pressure from the media they agree to let me make a visa application but i was refused to visa twice on formal reasons and they even didn't return my passport to me personally they said fire mail i'm prohibited to even stay near the border of britain so diplomatic relations between london and moscow are still pretty much at rock bottom and this candle is the cause of much of
the animosity between london and moscow the russian ambassador to the u.k. alexander york of young co told is there are still plenty of amount of questions on the case. almost the next day russia was bullying. argument that time was that russia is the only country where so called movie chalk could be produced but later on i mean the few weeks later we understood that something like twenty countries including europe most of the european countries they could produce new york. we offered the the u.k. government the let's say some kind of a joint investigation that was a real proposal from the russian side because we wanted to help certain issues to investigate because this is the russian citizens but so far as. the
british ambassador in moscow said a few weeks ago that britain is not ready for this kind of corporation. from the legal point of view this is the clear of the international law in the vienna but actual yannick well actual convention in the vienna convention from the one hundred sixty five where the embassy has a right under their convention to see russian citizens so britain is violating international law. we don't know their destiny you know what happened to them what is their health condition where they live with the in the united kingdom everything is fired and covered you know with the secrecy. if you look at b. and let's see media in the u.k. you will never find any decent story about russia most of the stories are very negative quite provoking and as american sate fake.
i believe that that kind of statement in the news people was part of the very serious on to russian campaign where most of the diplomats which are working in the embassy they are spies so this is some kind of a witch hunt to resume a gave a statement via twitter saying she hopes ellsbury will once again be known as a beautiful welcoming english city unfortunately there was one slight problem. five. zero. zero. zero zero zero zero zero zero. zero zero s. . s. . going to. us. thank you. so so.
a ways back. in the country he had left in late february in defiance of a travel ban imposed by the country supremes court this is the moment here arrived in caracas has been touring latin america to rouse the poor and his return now opens the possibility the venezuelan all forty s will try to arrest him later he addressed his supporters urging them to continue their protests all of venezuela will return to the streets determined to mobilize in search of freedom we will risk one second one to freedom is achieved the man who says he's the interim president of venezuela is back in the country by the red sea and i arrest warrants against him behind me addressing the faithful enough mother says that this started out those suburbs small gathering number in the hundreds but now there's houses of people's ears you know so far to go a month off motherhood was not impeded by the presence of white or here why don't
house arrest warrants against him i'm a little just at a rate the rate that should be arrested inside and yet here he is in the us most is address in their millions of the opposition deferred behind the boy in. the russian ambassador to venezuela claims the threat of a u.s. intervention in the country remains according to him washington on a satellite have been strengthening their military presence david as weyler political analyst because colonel believes kwaito his decision to defy the travel ban was deliberately staged. i think that it's clearly another media spectacle the stage to further the legitimize a democratically elected government i mean that's not what i invite your viewer to think you know i thought experiment if not nancy pelosi the house speaker and then i would have declared herself and current president of united states and with the middle east recognized by the kremlin and then when they left the country despite a travel ban and procedure to go on an international or accompanied by
a top russian diplomat and then returned to the country without an arrest and then go to not a anti-government rally and it would she would she be allowed to do this or would she be in jail i think dancers rather on a day to it yet very the is a constitutional grounds with regard to what the united states and the opposite doing here despite the john bolton at first to invoke a new coalition of the willing what we're seeing changes in a. u.s. national security adviser john bolton has warned against any attempts to prevent greatest return on twitter he said that would be a significant was splints from washington should say stay before us and. in a recent interview people to nudge the international community to round on then as well as electric need to replace the whole corrupt regime block in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase munroe doctrine this is a country in our hemisphere it's been the objective of american presidents going
back to ronald reagan to have a completely democratic hemisphere the monarch doctrine just mentioned by bolton was formulated by president james monroe in the nineteenth century its purpose was to stall to do your paid into ference in the affairs of nations in the americas but many interpret the doctrine as a justification for america's own interventions in the region russia's chief diplomat has been blunt about his issues with it. since the creation of the united nations in one thousand nine hundred five international law has been regulated under the auspices of this universal legitimate organization the syrian practices backyards is insulting well according to the russian foreign minister the use of the doctrine is insulting to the regional powers to the countries in latin america and you said that this whole thing should also be concerning to other nations because right now the united states have an ambition change the venezuelan government to oust him adorable but they have already teased that they have
a similar ambition for other countries in the region like cuba or nicaragua now the russian foreign minister also talks about john bolton's statements regarding russia's aid now john bolton in a recent tweet called my duro a liar for saying that russia basically supplied the venezuelan nation with humanitarian aid sergey lavrov pointed out that russia did supply seven and a half tons of medicine through international organizations to sort all of that is easily tracked and monitored and to most those accounting clearing the syrian military has been hit by a surge of terrorist activity we have the details on that after this short break. life expectancy in america is plummeting if you look at the chart it's shocking to look at almost every other country is kind of inching up on one side of the chart
and then as an outlier is the united states it's way over here and it's all crashing down from the drop from the having junk food having junk culture having it's junk politics and fake news it's all fake and fake doesn't sustain life and you see it in the numbers it's clear. what. they put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to be. actually going to be pros that's what before three of the four people. are still always in the water.
welcome back the syrian army suffered heavy losses this weekend in the north of the country eighteen soldiers were killed during a surprise attack by. a syrian offshoot of al qaida found bush a number of casualties were confirms to r.t. arabic by the army and with washington recently pushing up a million dollar reward for information on osama bin laden's son it looks like the war on terror has been given a fresh impetus is more explained. begins with. but it does not in there the war on terror is almost a tradition now a part of the american way of life no end in sight either so traumatic it was nine
eleven that it set america off on a seemingly endless crusade there's an old poster out west as i recall that said wanted dead or alive and it does seem endless no matter how many battles they win how many islamist sex they destroy how many bin ladens they kill is always someone else we deliver devastating blows to the car the leaders that attacked us on nine eleven. deliver justice to osama bin laden we have won against isis we've beaten them and we've beaten him badly now it's the sama bin laden's son hamza bin laden and washington is afraid that he's becoming a new terror i called homs it is the son of the deceased a.q. leader some of the blood and is emerging as a leader in the a.q. franchise how has been has released audio and video messages on the internet
calling on his followers to launch attacks against the united states and its western allies eased thirty also recently praised by the leader of al qaida blacklisted by the un married allegedly to the daughter of a nine eleven plane hijacker favored by his late father sama as his successor he's calling for attacks on the u.s. to avenge the killing of his father same crazy ideology what's unclear his whereabouts the u.s. seems to believe you could be anywhere in south central asia it all leads to one conclusion apparently. is coming back showing signs of confidence will through the threat from radical islamic terrorism a continuing threat posed by al qaeda there are according to various estimates more than thirty thousand active fighters across
a number of countries loyal to al qaida ironically the u.s. stands accused of arming them unintentionally in syria with weapons intended for moderate groups being seized by islamists in yemen c.n.n. reported with the saudis and their coalition partners handing american made weapons to oil qaeda linked fighters history it seems repeats itself in the nine hundred eighty s. during the soviet war in afghanistan the u.s. funded and armed the mujahideen including asama bin laden. they called them freedom fighters the mujahideen the islamists when they were fighting the u.s.s.r. but it didn't take long for those freedom fighters to morph into terrorists and the taliban into al qaida and they just won't go away no matter how many times you beat them it seems they just keep rising from the dead it won't get put back in the
bottle if the us does not want to put it back in the bottle the us final final. thousands of tons of weapons into syria allied with al qaida and allied with the muslim brotherhood and so when it suits the us purposes it will work with al-qaeda and other terrorists and when they become a problem after september the eleventh or after they morphed into islamic state in syria and iraq then of course it will it will attack them. senior us democrats signed him on the access to communications between donald trump and latham a pierce said they sent a request to the white house after media reports that the us president tried to destroy records of his talks with north. the committee's request the by march
fifteenth twenty nineteen the department produced documents communications who godless the foreman classification to refer relate to any communications between president trump and president putin including in person meetings and telephone calls for the timeframe china of the twentieth twenty seventeen to present but this is all part of a probe into alleged obstruction of justice or abuse of power by the president which all ties into the long running russian meddling investigation the case when trump and the kremlin in the run up to the twenty sixteen us presidential election let's not discuss this further with our guest live here michael patrick flanagan attorney and former u.s. republican congressman welcome to the program now house democrats are demanding over files relating to talks between trump and putin whether or not they are classified are there any such grounds for a request. you know i can answer that deliberately and completely know.
congress is the first branch of government the president is the second branch of government but it is still the sets the president to conduct without being completely open. is the foreign policy of the united states and it doesn't necessarily have to be classified in the sense that it has secret too or top secret data and it has been respected by congress for years and years and years until you get to the n.c. policies congress which respects nothing other than the need to get reelected and so they will demand these documents on the most spurious of claims that president trump had a meeting discussed horrible stuff and then took his notes away from the interpreter and destroyed them and then swore the interpreter to secrecy if it sounds ridiculous coming out of my mouth i've given you the same version of it congress is is completely committed to doing the twenty sixteen election this is new this is horrible and they will pay at the polls for this because america is not ready for
the sort of banana republic behavior. this comes of course off to a report in the washington post claiming trump confiscated records of a conversation would he have with pearson in hamburg in twenty seventy is it surprising also unusual that congressmen would base that actions on an unconfirmed media report. yes it well it goes to show you in this country and perhaps you're international audience doesn't know this but how deeply bad the press is with the democratic party the wiki leaks material that was put up which is at the base of all of this complaining by the democrats that demonstrated that the press said out loud that they're committed to defeating trump not just you know hedging their bets or viewing things from the left but actually going to take a seat in the stands take a role in assisting the democratic party defeat trump and they failed miserably
because the only group of people in this country who score lower on popular opinion polls the members of congress are journalists but they have they have no capacity to be able to execute this other than to scream and whine daily and so members of congress tend to particularly democratic members tend to treat the press as an extension of themselves because in many ways they are at this is this is a separation of the press that doesn't exist that the line has been incredibly blurred it's dangerous and unwelcome and i think the democrats don't know how perilously close they play to the edge here and i hope they wake up in time because there's they're on the brink of really ruining their own reputation for the future and being able to say west is declined by the white tiles do you think that this is something that could be used by the democrats to claim the trump administration has something to hide. but i'm sure they will but the request would be declined whether they had anything to hide or not because it is an executive privilege the president
can't be giving his is his day to day. a moment to moment thought by thought process to congress just because congress demands that congress has no ability to demand us their friends in the press will protect them but you know it simply isn't going to happen there was one of one of the one of the requests today i was reading was that the president has his daily schedule sixty percent of it is is not is not specifically laid out you know second to second who he's meeting with or what he's doing and the cross wants. to be i said the press congress would like would like the president to provide details of all the time that's not specifically announced it is his calendar what a ridiculous request i mean think about it objectively for just a minute what an asinine thing to ask for and they're going to demand it under subpoena and they won't get it and it's going to give them an opportunity to say look on cooperative years but anyone with a brain will realize how ridiculous the request was in the first place michael
patrick slightly going to tony and former us republican congressman always a pleasure thank you very much. all those on the headlines for you for this hour we will be back in thirty minutes with the latest one is that if you can. manufacture consent. when the ruling class is protect themselves. we can all middle of the room.
