without a deal one day after turning down prime minister teresa mayes divorce agreement with the no alternative in place and the clock ticking tensions of the house of commons flared. it would be a nordo that we are in the constitutional crisis the shooters the house expressing its opinion on the deal the government attempted to question it is a crisis of unprecedented levels let us as a house of commons work now to find a solution to deal with the crises facing this country and the deep concerns that many people have for their livelihood for their lives their future their jobs their communities and their factories well extraordinary chaotic times taking place in the u.k. it really does seem like a very serious crisis in terms of bracks at this point because as the deadline gets closer things just get more and more complicated just this week a series of very crucial votes taking place at the house of commons on wednesday
night we saw m.p.'s reject the possibility of leaving the european union without a deal and this of course of who came quite a significant vote with the theresa may herself saying all of the previous all actions continue to be on the table the legal to forge the u.k. and. remains that the u.k. will leave without a deal. unless something else is agreed to the onus is now on every one of us in this house to find out what that is now the reasoning for this is that despite the fact that he's refused to accept the idea of leaving without a deal the problem is that unless they find an alternative or a solution that everybody agrees to within the next two weeks by the march twenty
ninth deadline they will have to crash out of the european union without a deal that said unless an extension is agreed on and now we have a situation where to rescind. deal has been rejected leaving without a deal has been rejected and on thursday night m.p.'s will vote on whether or not to extend article fifty whether or not to push back the bracks a deadline of march twenty ninth and the way things stand at this particular moment all of the options still continue to be on the table as bizarre as that sounds because there seems to be no compromise in terms of how to move forward another difficulty is that even if m.p.'s vote for an extension of the brics a deadline brussels has made it clear they're quite frustrated with the situation they want to see some kind of unified approach from london indicating exactly what
they want out of bracks it we have heard. brussels save that really all negotiations have already wrapped up that the deal that had been presented and now rejected twice by members of parliament was the best deal possible so which way any of this is going to be moving forward continues to be anyone's guess frustration is also being felt on the continent with a senior negotiator reported to have said that wednesday's vote was like the titanic voting for the iceberg to get out of the way david coburn a scottish member of the european parliament thanks trees to me has made a mockery of bricks it. 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 w world trade organization terms it would have been a problem but i think the house of commons. do not like her deal at all is worse
than being in the european union and that's what she's trying to do she's trying to make it look so bad 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. breaks that count down on. the u.s. secretary of state mike pump air has accused several energy exporting nations including russia of posing a threat to liberty and freedom it was one of the number of key points made during his speech at an energy conference in texas your style of reports. the u.s. is out of the closet finally an official confirmation that it weaponized oil and gas and 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 about harnessing bad actors but hold up what's with the parts about bad acts as well don't you forget america is exceptional it's like no other country in the world really is so when they do it it is a canny tactic but when somebody else does it's a felony some nations are using their energy or 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 the rule of law that we do and they're using their energy to destroy ours it's all the usual suspect in this being go of baddies 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 hooked on russian gas to the north as 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 why us and 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 that invaded ukraine to gain access to all and gas reserves so let me get this straight russia world's number one in 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 naughty 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 a force for good don't mix it up but truth is 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 out
seems to believe that whatever the us. is right and moral and whatever russia china or iran do is this is terribly wrong and immoral but you have to remember that the foreign policy team that trumpets put together this is really an amazingly inept team they are very bad of what they're doing and no one is persuaded by its arguments russia's customers enter into the relationship voluntarily no one is corrupting anybody is supposedly free trade free market the europeans are appalled by this 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 pipe or gas from nearby russia rather than shipping it from the united states you know thousands of miles away makes no sense at all unless you're a u.s. gas company. it's being claimed spanish investigators have linked the
cia to last month's mysterious attack on the north korean embassy in madrid a group of ten mass people stormed mission in spain they restrained and gagged eight members of staff and reportedly put bags on their heads one woman succeeded in excuse ping from a window on the second floor while the attackers escaped with stolen computers and mobile phones it's also suggested that the former north korean ambassador to spain was the real target of the raid he served in the post for years but in two thousand and seventeen was expelled by madrid following north korea's nuclear tests he played a key role in organizing the recent summit between kim jong un and donald trump and how no madrid based journalist martin roberts has more. 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 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 add that those denials were quote not very convincing now if these attacks are confirmed they're currently under investigation by the high court. but the responsibility of the cia is confirmed to not care to have devastating implications for diplomatic relationships between the two countries are not least because of international conventions covering the inviolability of diplomatically geishas the spanish foreign minister has said he won't comment on the ongoing investigation but we've asked both the north korean embassy and spain's interior ministry for reaction or bring you more news right after this short break .
i do think the numbers mean something they matter to us with over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime families. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be ultra rich with six percent world market those thirty percent some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and this one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers over the world. the only
number you need to remember one one business you know borg commits one and only. breaks it down. you're watching r t international welcome back to the program an airstrike by u.s. led forces has reportedly killed allied afghan soldiers they're contradictory reports the exact number of dead. or worry reports. we have information from an afghan senator who actually happens to be from that village and some other afghan officials who said that this incident took place when a group of american soldiers as well as an afghan special forces unit were on their
way for an operation and they tried to use flashlights trying to see was there not knowing that it was the afghan national army positioned there when there was. gunfight between both sides for several hours inside a residential area. where strike was called in the strikes were conducted after afghan and u.s. forces came on defective small arms and rocket propelled grenades and they requested air support in self defense the afghan and u.s. partnered forces try to these collate this situation but in the fog of war they continued to be fired upon now that is a huge blow for the afghan national security forces at a time when there really badly wounded they are fighting across the country day and night and they're really tired because this was a very busy went or time for them they are fighting now that the spring offensive
is on the on the doorsteps. this sort of an incident really is a huge blow and we are still waiting for the minister of defense who has said that they will be investigating this but acknowledging that the incident took place because of lack of coordination it's not the first time an incident like this is taking place so indeed a very difficult year ahead for the afghan national security forces especially in the absence of a comprehensive cease fire between the afghan government in the taliban. members of anger merkel's conservative party have lashed out at the outspoken u.s. ambassador to germany that's after richard grinnell warned that washington could cut down the intelligence it shares with berlin should the chinese telecoms giant weiwei be allowed to be part of the country's five g. mobile infrastructure project that are all over as the story. chancellor merkel is
far from happy with the latest comments from washington's man in berlin on buses a richard grinnell said that should germany proceed with developing its next generation of wireless internet infrastructure alongside the chinese telecom company who while we're well then would be limited in the intelligence that was being shared with us from washington none of your business says angela merkel even the security particularly when it comes to the expansion of the five g. network but also elsewhere in the digital area is a very important concern for the german government so we are defining our standards for. other politicians have also been quick to condemn the u.s. ambassador's approach the federal government is in no need of demands or tips from the american ambassador about our competency through address cyber security policies again u.s. ambassador we're now is threatening the federal government the b. and d. supposed to buy routers from cisco rather than why wait otherwise there will be
based in unless of course the country being lectured is venezuela where when it comes to attempting to subvert the politics and constitution of the central american nation germany went further than using diplomatic corps when straight to the executive branch. why don't is now the person you talk to about it and we expect him to initiate an election process as soon as possible and for this task he is the legitimate interim president from the point of view of germany and many european partners doesn't mean that germany's ambassador to caracas didn't get in on the act though in fact he was expelled from venezuela after being accused of meddling in the country's internal affairs he left with a parting shot the president maduro. nicolas maduro not only lacks the democratic legitimacy necessary for political reasons but he also denied the humanitarian situation given as well as going through which was then doubled down on by
germany's foreign minister this will in no way lead us to reconsidering our support for one interim president with a mandate to organize free fair and independent elections anyway the support is irrefutable and it will stay this way it all leaves the u.s. ambassador's comments here paling into relative in significance in comparison german ambassador and has met with the self declared leader of the country a person. who hasn't been elected by anyone stood for the presidential election and who now claims to be the president of a country that barely knows him and is absolutely unacceptable for a german ambassador to meet him at the airport and to support him and to declare him the president of the country that is like if i were to clear bernie sanders the president of the united states. the crew of last year's failed rocket launch.
poised to make a second attempt ahead of lift off from the baikonur cosmodrome arches maria from the ocean i had a chance to witness the preparations. another recruiting on the international space station says day night russian spacecraft will take three members of the fifty ninth expedition to orbit doubling the station's population. two of them russian aleksey and america's nick hague this will be their second take they faced it with much dignity then and all full of confidence today. there will be no such incidents the thirty five years we go to your first flights i think even though we didn't make it to the i.r.s. this it was good training for the crews we have here and for us as well for.
one hundred percent of. the nature of. the ninety five percent of work. to do with engine failure. that is where they were you think have to touch down some of the five hundred one of those from the one fed by colonel in this way for a living they've lost on the way to lending. lend it on harm. given that they have one with the fifteenth to one with the earth and of the ballistics and many times more than the force of gravity. that was no one was hurt either you want me there think old chap or it obama going to a lot more than the fair we have never mind. our chorus really isn't cool literally
think. if they grow flowers flowers here all they have x. amount that was wrong with. the grains while they were going to fix them. says today's launch comes right after a successful test flight of america's dragon spacecraft the first commercial for vehicle to ever reach the international space station marking the beginning of a new era of even space flight thank you. will it be a new era of global exploration further exploration of space or the era of competition between russia us and other countries it is a competition with itself to just get better and competition is only going to help
us get a better future so it's actually a pretty good pretty good thing in general i don't know that there has ever been a dull time in the history of the international space station program but i do feel like we're especially going to have a very interesting fortune of the history of this station very dynamic and we're going to be on board for that. i don't know about the competition thing but if we look at this topic a little light heartedly i'd say the shuttles deliver pretty cool things to the i assess the progress rockets usually take things that don't expire that quickly and with shuttles but we just make some calls and in a day's time we get grapes or pepper and it all looks pristine with you could take a picture with those goods but for now i couldn't the oldest largest and busiest spaceport remains the only gate to a full siemens to enter the i have says in things to get done just like sixty years
ago. yuri gagarin was getting ready for the first space journey a story of. even the time the iraqi police for the first time he's holding the same seven am. the rocket is finally out of the world showplace has some bold manually and it's taking to the long side by a train using the rail line specially designed and built for just this purpose and this is the last time we see this really look at these speeds to middle one construction in a horizontal position. is always to vertical position in blade so you are here on the ground for the last time and boost the space she put its international crew name to orbit and.
that's our wrap up of the day's top news for now but don't forget you can always find us on many of your favorite social media platforms like twitter and facebook for up to the minute reports. what holds us and do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or something wanted us. to try to be for us it's like that before three in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of the holidays. this shouldn't.
