the support of china. is a game changer the washington consensus that has dominated the world for the past seven decades has been challenge the challenge of the. wiki leaks claim its founder julian assange expelled him from the ecuadorian embassy within hours today is high level government. nato accuses russia of imperialism and throwing its weight around the world on the same time and saying the alliance of military expansion in the black sea. french government falls foul of its own and fake news twitter temporarily bans one of its plans with social media platforms apparently confused as to what content in the town. it's all responsibility to
eliminate. we own it and we know how to do it. and the head of boeing admits for the first time that a system failure was a factor in a recent crash that claimed the lives of one hundred fifty seven. eleven o'clock here in moscow and you're watching out international live from moscow with me in a day or two to welcome to the program all eyes are on the ecuadorian embassy in london amid suggestions that we can leaks founder julian assange will be expelled from the compound he's been holed up inside since being granted asylum six years ago and joining me now is correspondent. why how why are people thinking all of the sudden be expelled now. well i can tell you that the supporters of joy in this songe were put in panic mode because of
a tweet by leaks i can tell you that it came out late on thursday night and suggested that julian assange could be thrown out of the embassy within hours or days and. first of all have to make it clear that the whistleblower is allowed to stay in the equador an embassy only if he follows a set of strict rules and it is feared that claims of violations could be used as an official pretext for that but the folks at leas believe the actual reason could be completely different and it is the so-called paper's offshore scandal that allege that the current president of ecuador lenin moran oh could be involved and could be benefiting from an offshore account in panama and the latest documents were released on february. that there were some sort of e-mails and
phone calls in these documents you can actually see the transcripts of that which link the president of ecuador to some sort of corruption and money laundering scandals and there you have it earlier this week we heard from let him know that he was absolutely unhappy with the way julia songe was treating the rules that were set for him at the ecuadorian embassy and apparently he's not happy with these revelations as well let's have a listen. yeah that's because too many times mr sanchez violates the cream and we reach with him and his attorney he can freely talk he can freely express himself pretty cannot lie or hack private accounts so for we keep leaks and gauges in espionage and hacking snooping on phones even getting photos of my bedroom where i eat and how my wife and daughters and friends dawns so we have we heard anything
from michael well there's no official confirmation that this is happening originally it was reported that all of this is speculation and rumors let's just go through the latest statements from ecuador and officials a senior official just said that for now no decision on the expulsion of julian assange have been made ecuador's foreign ministry also released a statement saying that it doesn't comment on rumors theories or conjectures that don't have any documented background that speculate there what will happen if assad is kicked out. well for years it's almost been clear and the supporters of julian assange and wiki leaks are openly talking about it that if expelled from the embassy a songe could be facing extradition to the u.s.
where federal prosecutors are investigating weiqi leaks and the probe relates sorry to weaken leaks releasing a whole bunch of classified american documents including things from the secret documents on the war crimes suppose it war crimes by the u.s. military in the afghan war or the cia spy tools and so on and so forth now we have been talking to julian assad supporters as outside the ecuadorian embassy in london and as i've said for now they are in panic mode they are there to protect the man they support and once again they were talking about this sort of trap that julian assange has fallen into. this time from assange. really for julian with the challenge of presidency. door and it seems that mr murray no one suspect would have recalled. the barman
incredibly toxic inside the building hoping he'll billion is being blamed for having leaked or having exposed the scandal surrounding marina at the moment the world should know he does not have access to any form of communication and he is no longer in charge if we should how he could possibly do that we don't know this is just a whole sham and the whole scam. so obviously the situation is intense we'll have our correspondent reporting from london from outside the ecuadorian embassy in less than an hour and yes the whole world is watching indeed it certainly is there thanks for the update. commenting on the latest wiki leaks revelations former ecuadorian president rafael correa said there is plenty of evidence of marina's guilt. this is a huge case one of the most important serious corruption case this.
history proves we have a lot of proof it really really really is we have been secret out the reasons you are counting by one by one we have this is their account we know really. a lot of. days where the more you know the family where you stand the government's major and ghost. firm you two are. really many. things but when lisa account will be organ the we will be able to see where does the money gone the. most protected i repeat there is no choice. in what the audience he described she has. this and she saw him go into it goes to show he cannot be decided to
do the next day no order and they go remember most probably the most but there is right that we will see what. it will do. the u.s. congress has passed a bill against american involvement in saudi arabia the war in yemen changes the chambers in the so-called war powers act to stop the u.s. from supporting riyadh without congressional approval the motion has had to dodge some sneaky efforts to block it as evil as it done off explains. fine print a few lines of text that can ruin you financially and allow facebook to know more about you than your family and friends ever will and keep the u.s. sponsoring a war that has led to the world's worst humanitarian crisis the us has passed a resolution to stop washington support for the saudi led complain in yemen for a very long time many have been desperately calling for this while the war hawks in
congress have been equally desperate to prevent it from passing and the means that they've resorted to to derail any such initiative absolutely spectacular. when house democrats put forward a resolution like this last time republicans added an amendment to it which condemned anti semitism this tragedy is merely one part of an upset in development that is a merged in recent years a resurgence of anti-semitism now what does anti semitism have to do with the war in yemen you are ask nothing but follow the hands the resolution passed in the house but was eventually refused to vote in the senate because it contained a bit irrelevant to the main subject yemen and that bit was yes the anti semitism amendment which house democrats didn't have the guts to argue to get rid of out of
fear as to sounds in a phobic and it's not the only time when humans fate was decided by the small print . last year donald trump signed into law a bill which he described like this through fires floods and freezing weather we will always stand with the american farmers the farm bill doubles the amount of farmers that they can borrow to expand and improve their farms you sure sounded pleased in this clip yet i have my suspicion that concerns for american farmers have little to do with it because this bill appeared on his table with an attachment blocking the vote on yemen and an identical thing happened the month before that. the house rules committee voted to advance the manage our wolves act that lifted the ban on hunting gray wolves and yes blocked a vote on the u.s.
involvement in the yemeni war which is an absolute outrage if you ask me because look in these big this is how can you allow hunting a creature as beautiful as that but in all seriousness though congress finally passing the yemen bill without any cabinets is a major milestone indeed but it is set to appear on donald trump's table next and just take a wild guess what's going to happen if you truly care about your many lives you'd support the saudi led effort to prevent yemen from turning into a puppet state of the corrupt british islamic republic of iran so yeah when you fix all the farmers' misery and manage all your wolves you always have mr president to rely on riyadh intervened in yemen in twenty fifteen after the profoundly then president was ousted by the rebels the bill passed by congress has yet to be approved by donald trump he may well turn that decision around the head of international action center doesn't think it's wrong or fine. the resolution will
very much likely go back again they'll be other votes and other efforts president trump has absolutely tied himself to the feudal monarchy. and to holland and. so there is a certain level of international embarrassment the saudis still year to to crush the movement in yemen and that's what's really behind this vote while the vote was important and at least pushing back the total and overwhelming u.s. support for saudi arabia's criminal war against yemen it's a war that would not one day of it would be possible without u.s. support naval blockade air refueling for years it's been four years of disaster for the people of yemen. nato has agreed a package of measures to step up its efforts in the black sea and counter russia in
the region with more surveillance in the exercises promised that's according to the airline's his secretary general speaking at nato seventieth anniversary celebrations. so we are stepping up their efforts. just agreed with the black sea region we just agreed a package with more surveillance exercises on old issues which we. strongly believe or relevant for the black sea region and of course also the working with all partners georgia and ukraine nato has branded russia a global threat with the instance and saying the countries made the world a more dangerous place the u.s. secretary of state mike pumpin expressed a similar attitude. pratima putin harbors dark dreams of imperialism he wants to split our alliance and weaken our democratic result still russian aggression russia's attacks on western democracies and in the context of russian efforts all
around the world if russia did not exist it would be necessary to invent russia just to keep nato going that's the impression that you get from the summit and the anniversary celebrations that just took place in washington d.c. what worries them seems to be russia's presence anywhere russian efforts all around the world whether that's efforts in ukraine. russians continued. activity in syria talked about it in venezuela talked about what they did in the save as of em's they want them out in each case we are doing our best collectively to respond in the case of venezuela the united states says it's responses being prepared as well and what doesn't worry them is their own presence at russia's borders really why would russia be nervous about such moves nato is adamant to present itself as purely a defensive bloc quickly forgetting the havoc it regularly creates around the world
. but even with nato as number one enemy so clearly pronounced there is still kind of a lack of unity within the block the loudest retort seems to be coming from turkey we just don't close in on so that you don't need to join nato his demand for turkey to abandon a deal is already been completed shares disrespect for terrorists over its. the thing is that that's how nato second biggest members seem to respond to washington's ultimatum turkey must choose. does it want to remain
a critical partner the most successful military alliance in the history of the world or doesn't want to risk the security of a partnership. by making reckless decisions that undermine our line and even mr stoltenberg was somewhat disconcerted by this us or them rhetoric it is a national decision. for each other to decide on determined capabilities actually from washington's point of view it's not just russia that nato member countries shouldn't be purchasing from china is also dangerous for the risks associated with the installation of chinese technology and systems related to security there is undoubtedly a risk and every sovereign nation that will make its own decision and then the united states will make its decision so it sounds like friends of the united states are free to trade with the united states alone beyond the u.s. not trading or blocking us corporations from trading with other countries is
very conscious and energetic attempt that's carried out by the u.s. by the state department and the treasury department prevent other countries from trading with those countries that have been targeted and we see this in regard to iran we see sanctions against russia cuba venezuela north korea sanctions against china many many countries in the world are sanctioned to one degree or another in order to block certain kinds of trade and normal economic relationships what are considered today normal economic relationships in again the interest of a strategy of global domination. is trying to get tough on fake a new president and then you'll knock on pushing through a new battle with information however it seems something to chance a confused just how to implement it as solid reports. ahead of the e.u. elections the french government information service or g.i.s.
launched a campaign aimed at boosting voter registration but twitter found that the we thought campaign is in violation of france's own anti fake news law and through an accident and the storm broke twitter his actions were called out all day. to does not know how to do this at this time and has therefore decided to have a completely extreme policy cutting and is supposedly a political campaign they were slammed as illegal i thought it was an april fool's joke to do blocks public complaint for voter registration so as not to respect the un to fake news transparency rules appalling and illegal too it is priority should be to fight content glorifying terrorism not campaigns to register on electoral rolls of a democratic republic. after a lot of pressure twitter quickly related to it after numerous discussions we have
decided to allow an encouraging electoral put suspicion but such burns don't always end on a high note the social media platform is known for banning and suspending accounts often without reason including those it considers russian bought. even movie accounts have been suspended for no obvious reason take the pro-life film and plant off to raking in six million dollars at the box office on opening weekend it found its twitter account was banned though it was late reinstated mysteriously around one hundred fifty thousand followers were dropped and doesn't stop but from the left to the right of politics twitter often acts as the judge and the jury so enraged to users that many are leaving the platform altogether the problems become so embarrassing for twitter that it's now going to stop and nan saying how many uses it keeps using twitter may have appeased the french government for now but all
people think just stand out in this business you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest race in. stand losing business you just the dance the right questions and the right answer. question. welcome back to the program the u.n. security council will be convening on friday to discuss the latest military escalation in libya and u.n. secretary general is now in tripoli and gave
a statement calling on all sides to afford bloodshed. i want to make a very strong appeal. believe you for me to tell you movements to stop there is no military solution for every problem in the world and there is not military solution for the problems in libya earlier on thursday a military leader ordered his troops to march on the capital tripoli raising the prospect of a large scale confrontation field-marshal khalifa haftar gave a speech to his forces which he also posted online. oh you are a lot of us are worse heros the time has come only use your weapons against those who have decided to fight those who have chosen bloodshed but those who lay down their arms must be spared it is your responsibility to protect the citizens institutions and interest juncture of the capital. the country has been torn apart
by warring factions since gadhafi was ousted eight years ago since then two rival governments have emerged one backed by the u.n. and based in tripoli and another in the eastern city of to brick which is controlled by khalifa haftar his announcement comes days before a un brokered peace conference which is supposed to pave the way the new elections . a joint statement has been issued by the u.s. france italy the u.k. and the way they're calling on all sides to avoid military posturing and show restraint and they stress that there is no military solution to the libya conflict independent political analyst alexandra bruna says the situation in libya could deteriorate. it's a very serious situation no matter what happens general have so has gained political currency because military because whether or not the conference in. which the reconsideration conference goes through or not he has
the big hand right now and also there are various as i mentioned various city states let's call them which are very significant interests of their own in maintaining a certain autonomy from everyone else one of these is mr carter maybe the most important one. they will probably put up a fight. i don't think they see very kindly to journal after so potential is definitely exists for bloodshed. of u.s. plane make a boeing has apologized after admitting system failure was a factor in two recent crashes involving the company's new seventy seven x. and the two disasters happened within six months of each other together and three hundred forty six lines. with the release of the preliminary report the big
ethiopian airlines flight three zero two accident investigation it's apparent that in both flights the maneuvering characteristics augmentation system known as an cas activated in response to erroneous angle of attack information it's our responsibility to eliminate this risk we own it and we know how to do it. as a safety feature the boeing seven three seven max reaches a new type of anti store in defiance and the sea and explain that in both trying to two incorrect data causing the noses of the planes to be forced down when the pilots were trying to gain altitude we heard from a commercial aplan pilot keith thing he says that pilots should always be able to override commands from a plane or twenty system. the system repeatedly kicked in and the pilots were forced to fight against it that is as you say a terrifying concept we should always be able to override any electronic system
software system protection system on the airplane that stability augmentation system was from the angle attacks answers the question that i would ask is why was it feeding that information to the system is there something wrong with the angle of attack sensors the way they were installed the way they were connected to the aircraft systems was their manufacturing defect i think those sensors were not manufactured by boeing but perhaps by a third party supplier but i think everybody is focusing on the software that caused the nose down motion when i think the initial question should be why is it giving bad information if the news this hour i'll be back around thirty minutes with updates but do you think that this fifth crossed tool which is that next here on international.
guys are financial survival. customers go by you're just a. good elf well reducing lower. that's undercutting but what's good for market is not good for the global economy. and there was a. seems to do crack when i was a local. he was like. so you know like what i needed when i was a baby boy i had a bad childhood. there's always been single mothers an african american community service and slavery. i think it's more of a teenagers having kids. you can't expect a fourteen or fifteen year old first daughter now ordered for and there are far there any check out. lost their place
