6:04 pm
square that a massive armored vehicle could actually fit into one of those now in terms of the political context of this meeting we have to remember what happened a few months ago and also last year to face to face meetings with an american president donald trump the world expected to break through but it didn't happen no agreements or deals were signed being yanked expected some positive steps from washington to be made in response to the concessions from the d p r k one of the things they said they did was destroying a number of nuclear facilities that they used to have what they got instead was more pressure and threats of new sanctions and what we found out eventually was that kim john thune was heading to russia and the next leader he's going to meet is vladimir putin not donald trump so definitely we are expecting them to discuss the
6:05 pm
denuclearization of the korean peninsula of course moscow's role and where it stands in this conflict is completely different to that of washington but if once the kemp and summit is over we hear about some breakthrough decisions being made in pyongyang that is really going to be a diplomatic game changer. for the chairman of the d.p.a. ok will spend the night as a hotel on the ski island north korean delegation requested a range of traditional russian dishes to be served during the stay and so on the menu is bush a soup made from trips maybe which are russian style dumplings. well the main event of the summit will be on thursday kim jong un had plenty to occupy me in the meantime he was set to visit several major factories as well as russian naval facilities political analyst chris bambery outlined his expectations for the
6:06 pm
talks think putin is going to see take it easy here you need to go all his advice would be you need to take it gradually and make sure any step you take is as a reciprocal step from the americans so i think they'll be discussing the nuclear deal and how the north koreans can play the card and i think image in your want putin's advice. and i think putin will retain them to say a bit more hardball please put hardball with the americans a bit a bit more so i get i'm not thinking anything really dramatic here but i think it america russia will make it clear that while it doesn't saeed with north korea in terms of developing nuclear missiles it understands why north korea wants this nuclear program and understands why americans have to treat the north koreans with respect in these negotiations if the negotiations resume service they were put in
6:07 pm
will meet with kim jong un on thursday and of course will be right across all events for you to stay with r.t. for the latest. meeting rice groups have delivered a scathing rebuke to saudi arabia over its execution of thirty seven men on terror related charges on tuesday amidst international said that most of the convictions were and down in sham trials and demonstrate a callous disregard for human life on the part of the authorities in the rights watch as described the punishments as grotesque against the of reports. few things so as much fear into the hearts of your own people as mass executions none of this electric chair or lethal injection nonsense we're talking here about beheading it isn't so much about killing someone as it is about terrifying others narco
6:08 pm
cartels the mafia know it and so does saudi arabia and if you can get away with bad heading justifying it generally isn't a problem the men were executed for adopting terrorists and extremists thinking and performing terrorists else to corrupt and destabilize security allegedly among their crimes was this respect towards authority some of them can you believe that like the king protested against him so serious with their crimes that one of those executed was also crucified yes crucified in two thousand and nineteen his body strung up for all to see for all to fear. today's mass execution is a chilling demonstration of the saudi arabian or thirtieth callous disregard for human life it is also yet another gruesome indication of how the death penalty is
6:09 pm
being used as a political tool to crush dissent from within the country its sheer minority in fact almost half of those killed were executed after taking part in pro-democracy protests see the arab spring didn't skirt saudi arabia the shia minority rose up and wanted change better fairer life the king obviously thought they wanted too much it's not the first time which saudi arabia did you know t. to punish prisoners of conscious rule who dared to talk to you. and rights violations in the country we were surprised by by what happened yesterday because we thought that it was like something we shouldn't have happened at and in any in any case or any time it's not the first time such a punishment to crash. one of those executed by the

way was sixteen years old at the time of his arrest attending a protest apparently still a kid now is an example you wouldn't believe how creative the saudis are when it comes to killing prisoners in fact the current king began his reign by staging a massive execution forty seven people behaved it shot for crimes that included this a big saudi rulers biggest blood show since the nine hundred eighty s. who said fictions and common peaked in two thousand and twelve five people were strung up paralysis reportedly is also in a judge's arsenal seriously they can sentence a person to be paralyzed as punishment roots back to four thousand year old law that someone wrote on a stone bill or two through
6:11 pm
a tooth and literally in this case a knife or and i. took that stone very seriously in two thousand and five a cordon saudi arabia ordered a migrants i gagged out as punishment for getting into a fight and q taishan also a favorite especially for theft chopping off people's arms and feet stealing and of course stoning reserved for crimes like being too friendly with the opposite sex what can you say you want to cherry on top saudi arabia's on the un human rights council. what a world that sends an extremely worrying signal to the shia community regarding you know standing up for their rights i mean there are many members of the shia community huge what's that up from the right this will certainly. dissuade them or serve to dissuade them for doing such
6:12 pm
a thing notably we've heard nothing from the united states of america perhaps others who are involved in supporting saudi arabia in other elements of its public policy say in respect yemen and so on so i am sitting in in the u.k. i haven't heard any particular condemnation from the british government it is completely unclear that international standards of justice a fair trial standards were were followed in this case and thirty seven people is a lot of people to to execute on any one day it's it's a quite a ruthless move. the parents of a swedish national arrested in ecuador for reportedly plotting it's the president have been allowed to visit their son in jail the swedish foreign minister is demanding ecuador explain the arrest the man in question is beneath has a computer program and he's an expert in cyber security and a digital privacy advocate he was detained just hours after julian assange had been

6:22 pm
senior officials deliberately withheld intelligence about the potential for attacks or britain and the f.b.i. are helping the investigation into who carried out the bombings islamic state has claimed without any evidence that its fighters were responsible the sri lankan defense ministry suggestion this was retaliation for the christ church mosque shootings has been played down by new zealand prime minister arden's office while world leaders and top political figures have condemned the attacks and expressed their condolences for the dead and injured and the terrorism experts to meet are below the told us that the authorities in the u.k. need to look at why increasing numbers of university students are being radicalized . we're now seeing a lot of students or some students seems to be radicalized and you can invest this this is a trick because. this is becoming the whole four out. there is need
6:23 pm
for view of. how to assure that this is stopped. i think it's important to highlight that this is not a forced individual to have gone through universities that had been radicalized nor . to try to use a bomb. on a plane so we know some people have been coming here and we need to know if it indeed was radicalized. associates so that even if. there is they need to be able to apprehend them quickly or even if they do you k. . so the pings will declare war against canada to resolve a dispute over waste disposal that's according to the president of the southeast asian nation. we can take them down in the trash just

6:25 pm
it's completely unfair to just blame you certainly have the seat of the canadian government alone and of course it would be nice if present in their dollars a question that private companies or for the sport in canada and the philippines or love for these kind of this will go on for quite a long time if you look at the population density. we beings as both. inhabitants square kilometer and. for less than four so i mean if you don't josh in a country which is so densely populated. it's point on here anything that can or could certainly find a means when there is a will there's a way likes to make sure everybody human rights about democracy and above the environment but seems to be quite slow in acting in this case. and that runs things up from a for the same thing thanks staying with my colleague dumb hole conservative today
