if. there was one of the good old morse of the right script. that. was. just a fight to clear majority against leaving the house a deal however i repeat which i have sent. to the house was coming. divisions in westminster deepen as british m.p.'s vote against a no deal drags it raising more questions over the future of the u.k.'s exit from the european union. the cia is behind a mysterious attack on the north korean embassy in spain according to local media.

russia's nord stream two gas pipeline project is the tool to destroy liberty and freedom according to the u.s. secretary of state on pump a zero claims american energy products are much better alternative. we need to continue to build our energy security and the current importance to buy from us but bad actors. and a new documentary reveals that supporters of terror group islamic states have infiltrated a greek refugee camp where they rule with an iron fist we talked to the film's producer. there were reports of really quite disastrous things happening there but we never ever expected to find out what we really found. a very warm welcome to you you're watching r c international with me taking airing
7:02 pm
our top story a week of critical brags that decision's continues with the u.k. parliament having now ruled out a no deal scenario it means that on thursday british m.p.'s will return to westminster to decide whether to extend article fifty and seek further negotiations with the e.u. . legal for which the u.k. do you look. at the u.k. will leave you without you do you are. something else is agreed to the onus is now on every one of us in this house to find a situation seems to be getting trickier and trickier as the bracks a deadline comes closer and closer and it's no underestimation to call what's going on a crisis really because clearly there is no common way in terms of how to move forward and bracks it is just sixty days away at least the wee things stand tonight
7:03 pm
now in a series of crucial votes this week yet another one has taken place this evening in a series of votes indeed the house of commons has rejected the idea of leaving the european union without the deals now earlier if you remember they rejected twice the deal that the british prime minister theresa may have put forward in front of them so the way things stand now they don't want to leave with her deals but they also don't want to leave with no deal bear in mind as strange as this may sound this doesn't really mean anything because they could still leave with no deal because time is running out and if there's no alternative found by march twenty ninth they're still going to have to do it because that's the law to put it bluntly and i think it's been made clear that the idea of playing around of potentially even returning to teresa mayes deal if nothing less is left on the table could also
7:04 pm
still take place so it's very very complicated but at least this week what we have going on is last night may's deal was rejected for the second time in a row by quite a considerable margin tonight the house of commons had said no to the possibility of leaving the european union with no deal again what this means really who knows and tomorrow night. it's thursday night they're going to be voting on the possibility of extending the brics a deadline of pushing extending article fifty pushing back the deadline of march twenty ninth which would potentially allow the u.k. to have more time to get back to figuring out what they're doing the problem there is the european union have made it clear they don't want to renegotiate there's nothing to renegotiate left according to them because they said the deal that they had agreed on is the best one possible that's now the case closer than ever to leaving without a deal because they didn't want this one and more importantly what brussels has
7:05 pm
made clear is they want to see some kind of unity come from london to start with so that westminster goes ahead and actually presents what it is that you know m p's would support in terms of practice it so none of this has happened bracks it is sixteen days away all of the options as to rescind may put it. said herself earlier today remain on the table so how all of this is going to end up playing out is still anybody's guess david kopel a member of the european parliament for scotland things to reason may has made a mockery of briggs's. i mean the government have made the biggest mess in history could have easily gone through breaks it. could've agreed to to leave on the world trade organization terms it would have been a problem i think the house of commons. do not like her deal at all is worse than
7:06 pm
being in the european union and that's what she's trying to do she's trying to make it look so bad that it will continue on in the european union i think is the end of some of the big parties going there to the end of the conservative party it's breaking up i think the labor party even in the state the tory party or at the moment can't seem to be able to do with an election eve like you to win the election you know there was one so they're doing very poorly i think it's time for new parties to come on the block. brake said countdown on. the cia was behinds last month attack on the north korean embassy in madrid according to spanish media with the investigation taking an unexpected twist a look at journalists mark roberts reports.
7:07 pm
in a remarkable report today spain's newspaper of record el paice suggested that the u.s. central intelligence agency may have been behind a recent attack on the north korean embassy here in madrid which you can see behind me now two things about this attack a particularly significant the first one is the timing because the attack happened on the twenty second of february or just days before the recent nuclear summit between the united states and north korea in hanoi which as we all know ended inclusively the second significant factor here is that the korean delegation to hanoi was headed by none other than el pikes say that police investigators and also investigators from the security services have managed to identify at least two of the ten presumed assailants and say that they have connections to the cia they are also that the cia have denied responsibility but they are that those denials were.
7:08 pm
not very convincing the police are investigating. this attack they say that these ten assailants. forcibly entered the embassy but they tied up gagged beat and interrogate a neighbor called the police a masterpiece or frustrate of the attack however they say lintz managed to get away in embassy cars taking with them important documents and computer material now if these attacks are confirmed they're currently under investigation by the high court . but the responsibility of the cia is confirmed and that had to have devastating implications for diplomatic relationships between the two countries are not least because of international conventions covering the inviolability of diplomatically geishas we've asked the north korean embassy and spanish interior ministry for reaction to the news but the latter already replying that it will not comment on an ongoing. investigation. u.s.
7:09 pm
secretary of state mike pompei was accused several nations including including russia of selling their energy products in order to attack liberty and freedom and that wasn't the only important point made during his speech to an annual energy conference in hoost in texas it goes down of reports. the us is out of the closet finally an official confirmation that it weaponized oil and gas in its foreign policy doctrine we need to continue to build our energy security in the ways of describing we need to roll up our sleeves and compete by facilitating investment all across the world and encouraging partners to buy from us but honestly that actors but hold up what's with the parts about bad actors well don't you forget america is exceptional it's like no other country in the world really so when they do it it is a canny tactic but when support malign amps and not to promote prosperity in the way we do here in the west. they don't have the values of freedom and liberty of
7:10 pm
the rule of law that we do when they're using their energy to destroy ours it's all the usual suspect in this bingo of bodies russia is naturally there as it stands accused of plotting to turn poor old europe into a bunch of gas junkies by building a pipeline we don't want our european allies on russian gas to the north of you to project none of the countries implicated in the project see a problem with it if we received russian gas during the cold war not only in the d.d.r. where i live but also in west germany but i don't see why the times and situation today should be so much more us now we can no longer say that russia remains a partner but uncle sam knows best russia also apparently invaded ukraine to pillage its energy stock and we all know the story in russia invaded ukraine to gain access to oil and gas reserves so. let me get this straight russia
7:11 pm
world's number one proven gas reserves with over fifty thousand billion cubic meters to show for it wanted some of ukraine's three hundred billion and when it comes to the black gold the mighty energy empires of denmark and it's really more oil rich than ukraine could it be that someone spends so much time in iraq that now sees the fingerprints of its own plays everywhere now of syrian leader bashar assad also goes on to impose nor to list well this time the syrian president is guilty of wanting to explore some of syrian oil reserves which are well in syria and it is cuba of course taking advantage of venezuela by enjoying its oil not the us that outright seized all assets over venezuelan petroleum company and wired them to an account inaccessible to president maduro and remember us is special in every way so when they earn a buck in energy trade that's
7:12 pm
a force for good don't mix it up but through this here's my point. we're not just exporting american energy we're exporting our commercial value system to our friends and to our partners so trumps well marketed america first policy may need a little clarification it's not about america solving its problems by itself it's about america trying to solve its problems at everyone else's expense pompei oaths seems to believe that whatever the u.s. does is right and moral and whatever russia china or iran do is this is there really wrong and immoral but you have to remember that the foreign policy team that trump has put together this is really an amazingly inept team and they are very bad at what they're doing no one is persuaded by its arguments russia's customers enter into the relationship voluntarily no one is corrupting anybody as they supposedly
7:13 pm
free trade free market the europeans are appalled by decision to pull out of the nuclear accord with iran they are determined to go ahead with the nord stream to pipeline which the u.s. opposes the no reason not to pipe in or gas from nearby russia rather than shipping it from the united states you know thousands of miles away it makes no sense at all unless you're a u.s. gas company. the terror group islamic state has penetrated a refugee camp in greece where it's persecuting religious minorities as the finding of a soon to be released documentary. it's a process the syllabi that's designed for about two. thousand people but realistically. around ten times.
7:14 pm
the conditions of the count were really bad the rest shouldest showed a soto's of videos of riots happening all the time especially when the spirit is being delivered. to you to look. like. you're not your. wife's mike yeah yeah yeah i feel. like you know they can steal my dogs every. model come. on. in the morning that you know when you're in jail. on a dog park with a little off i thought look on. top of this many times to put i cannot trust to protect ourselves to go to this.
7:15 pm
well a film will be released in may we spoke to its producer about how they ended up telling the story. you know the main reason we chose moreas because there were reports of really quite disastrous things happening there but we never ever expected to find out what we really time guy this place was was really sort of uncontrollable with that there were there were attempts to scuff it up all through the mountainsides there was no security there there was almost no control whatsoever and one of the residents actually told us that they were terrified of being tied to one man told. the reason he fled the middle east was to escape from radical islam when they arrived in europe within days they were experiencing the same thing which was which was really really shocking is because an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness when you're there you know as a filmmaker. director george and laura and i have spent so much time in different
7:16 pm
different environments different conditions but this was definitely one of the most difficult and also scary this is you know interpol only recently published published a report saying that there's now a new way of terror threat coming to europe from returning to hardy's the residents told us that the reason isis is operating on the town now because they've been defeated in their own countries in the east and other coming here and it all fits into the narrative of interpol and to the to everybody else so it's. it's quite depressing overall but it was worth it to bring this truth when either the police nor the government have responded to over qwest said by the documentary makers on the situation in the camp we've sent our own request to the police as well with our new revelations that the a bomb ever justice department's applied pressure not to charge hillary clinton i've had deleted emails more on that story after this short break.
7:17 pm
what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express interest. you somehow want to be rich. but you do like to be close it's like the flag really can't believe. i'm interested always in the logs. to make.
7:18 pm
a comeback the u.s. justice the u.s. department of justice told the f.b.i. not to charge hillary clinton with gross negligence over her deleted e-mails back in twenty sixteen that's according to a transcript of congressional testimony by former f.b.i. official lisa page. we had multiple conversations with the justice department about bringing a trust negligence charge and that's as i said the advice that we got from the department was that they did not think that it was constitutionally vague and not sustainable when you said weiser got from the department you're making it sound like it was the department but told you you're not going to charge gross negligence
7:19 pm
because we are the prosecutors and we are telling you we are not going to that's correct. an investigation was launched after it was revealed that clinton used a private e-mail server to store classified information when she served as secretary of state in july two thousand and sixteen the probe ended without criminal charges reacting to the latest revelations president accuse the obama era justice department of collapse of. the just revealed f.b.i. agent lisa page transcripts make the a bomb of justice department look exactly like it was a broken and corrupt machine hopefully justice will finally be served much more to come former republican congressman michael flanagan believes things would be handled differently if the shoe were on the other foot. the motivations behind their action be trailer corruption and i assure you that if if jeff sessions were
7:20 pm
making the same decision about the truck matter it would be you know screaming from the rooftops of cleveland and all sorts of other stuff there be prosecutions all across the land over this but when the left does it to the left we smile and look the other way and it becomes very neat an easy way to control the people around you by knowing that the organs of justice are within your complete control this is destroying evidence this is the sort of process crime that something like the miller commission would be all over if she weren't high ranking democrat this is really really wrong and we really need to pay closer attention to these sorts of things when the interests of justice are flouted in this way. french president emanuel crowns vision of a reformed european union which he made last week has been met with the right derision by some of the blokes key players the austrian chancellor and the head of germany's biggest party angela merkel success at the christian democrats are among
7:21 pm
those rejecting his ideas on a tease peter looks at what they took exception to. if french president or manual mccrone was hoping that fellow e.u. leaders would support his new vision for the future of europe his european renascence as he called it well he may be a little disappointed austrian chancellor said busty and could says the latest to criticize micron's plan saying it's utopian and comes with too many rules as it to me i believe that many of the suggestions are utopian. plead for europe with as few rules as possible. so what is my crime put forward that doesn't like well he's proposed creating a whole load of new e.u. agencies including one that would police campaign financing in elections in member states he also wants to see more and more centralized powers for a shingle and border force and has even a plan there for an e.u. minimum wage mark or once in an agency for democracy that's ridiculous i mean we
7:22 pm
have democracy you should reform the e.u. but it doesn't really want to reform the because it's an intra governmental e.q. built on french design i mean france basically has a vested plymouths there and the e.u. is missing true parliament and the who is missing. french nuclear power and the french seed in the in the security council so for the you to reform we have to talk about everything it's not just the austrian chancellor that is unhappy about this though here in germany the woman widely tipped to take over from angela merkel is chancellor also isn't very king european central isn't european status in the community rising debt the european eyes ation of social systems and the minimum wage would be the wrong approach c.d.u. leader and a good outcome did agree with president macro when it came to security but on not a lot else and members of
7:23 pm
a christian democratic union party are also critical of the plan i'm quite amazed that on. good compared the new cd you little skeptical because normally german leaders always follow the french leaders of germany thought that would be part of the german reason of state but apparently it's not anymore than you can see in this the turmoil and the change in europe the pressure by the people and democratic change her has probably brought the party leader to push her position herself slightly more skeptical of new french plans and france is feeling and this e.u. in some ways is feeling the timing of the release of micron's plan hasn't helped the french president either it's come out just before european parliamentary elections in which it's expected euro skeptic parties will make pretty decent gains and while he hasn't got the support of key allies within the european union his dream of a new european renascence may well remain just a dream peter all of our early. protests erupted overnight in the
7:24 pm
venezuelan capital caracas where supporters of the country's opposition leader clashed with police. here in west started after people gathered in a western district of the city is this video shows that stones were thrown at the police people were urged to the streets by the country's star planed president quite oh think it was going to be i know it sounds harsh in a venezuela that is bleeding today that is suffering to say that we are doing well i know that sounds tough but it is obvious that we aren't saying it because of the country situation because we know the situation in the country is critical we know it is critical and have condemned it and we have a proposal to improve it when we say that it is because we are united as one when we say it it is because we are going all out to achieve in his way less freedom we
7:25 pm
will not tremble when we make those decisions. but as well as president nicolas maduro says the majority of the country is calm with electrical power having been restored following massive nationwide outages here ledgers us hackers were behind the blackouts and has appealed for help defending against future interference. betty feet can't get full she would have to i want you to know that i have appointed a presidential special investigations commission to look into the cyber attack and i've asked for the participation of international specialists i will ask for the support of the united nations and in addition i would also ask for the already active support to russia china iran and cuba countries with a lot of experience defending against cyberattacks we already have the support of these countries if the us government was concerned about the humanitarian situation inside as well and then they should begin the process of lifting sanctions at twenty million dollars in aid in any way reflect the value of what to be lost by
7:26 pm
the business world and government every day the very notion that the chopper ministration would be concerned about the humanity of people in venezuela is laughable there has been an attempt by the truck administration to manufacture a crisis a crisis they did not exist in this country there was an election that people voted and i mistook him a door was scheduled to assume his office of the of the constitution but then we have this diversion by the national assembly that is in contempt and now we have this manufactured crisis at this point all of the respectability and legitimacy stairs were built while in government a government recognized by the vast majority of the states on this planet thanks for joining us on r.t. international we're back in thirty minutes with the latest with either.

negative interest rates coming to your bank account is being done on the wholesale level right now between countries and now it's going to come to your local bank account so instead of getting thirty basis points on your money market fund or on your savings account the bank will get made of three percent so that's three percent will be taken out of your account and given to someone that a central bank says a systemic claim for. during the great depression almost remember that it was mostly found. there wasn't it was bit much worse objectively. but there was an expectation of the things were going to get better. there was a real sense of hope. there isn't today today's america was shaped by the ten
