columbus discovering a new world this paradigm shifting technology that transforms economics and finance in a heartbeat the apollo eleven landing. in this story the week. between. north korea's kim jong. il relations with the focus also on breaking the deadlock on the korean peninsula. russian national. jailed in the u.s. for failing to register as a foreign agent but her lawyer and. current political climate.
in the us were illegal. themselves but she got caught up in this. coming up on the program. from the u.n. human rights groups for execution with concerns that the charges against the thirty seven. men were trumped up. stories from the past seven days on right up to the moment developments as well this is the weekly r t international alone welcome. from a nuclear free north korea to the relations vladimir putin's. met for the first time on thursday in russia's far eastern city of stark after nearly two hours of face to face talks the leaders expressed their willingness to further
develop relations. situation on the korean peninsula. yes. we just had a fairly narrow one to one conversation we managed to talk about the history of our bilateral relations and about the present day and the prospects of developing those relations but of course we also talked about the situation on the korean peninsula and exchanged views on what needs to be done to improve the situation. audience mr president we have just had to authority exchange of opinions trace to friess almost to matters of mutual importance and i thank you for the great triumph you heard in that is. even though no agreements were assigned it seems the leaders had a productive time the two exchanged sword sales a symbol of the mutual respect between their nations and wrapped up their talks with a lobbyist in or north korean state media reported that kim is ready for more talks
next time in pyongyang r.t. but frank reports now from a lot of us talk. literally minutes after the north korean supreme leader got inside his limo we were given the opportunity to come closer to his armored train. so unfortunately i won't be able to show you or see for myself any of the extraordinary facilities inside that tray that was used by cam john father i was
trying to look through the window but obviously no chances and the security guards are watching carefully to make sure that we don't touch it i've already been told off by the inside there are high tech communication facilities several conference room as well as luxury living quarters in the middle of the train there's a special room for him john rooms wife and white next to it two separate carts for body guards there are two restaurants one is for the supreme leader himself and the second one is for the entire delegation there's even a special section for the leaders limo and they're the one that we saw on the station square that massive armored vehicles can actually fit into one of those.
well it turns out that in a sense john is counting on volodymyr putin as a kind of a middleman in delivering his messages to the rest of the world leadership it looks like chairman kim is hoping that his message will get all the way to washington through russia as well as its. chairman king also be directly to tell the us about his position and about the questions he has it today and with the situation on the korean peninsula we also found out that the russian leader as
confident that pyongyang essential desire is international security guarantees guarantees for seventeen and when it comes to dating core ization according to mr putin the only way forward is through these kind of guarantees i would like to remind you that four years russia's peace road map was about mutual concessions from both sides that of north korea on the one hand and south korea and allies on the other and china is backing this plan to well the russian president believes that for years every step forward made by washington was followed by two steps backwards it was do it get to you but we need some confidence building measures to be taken which could have been taken back in two thousand and five when the u.s. and north korea came to an agreement to waive it later on for some reason the american partners thought this was no it's enough that they need to add something
more to this agreement that's what north korea with drew from the treaty. if you're making a step forward and two steps back you'll never succeed. after what we heard on thursday it is definitely fair to say that there is a lot of potential in kim putin summit and by the way the president of south korea said that this summit in blood of all stock should act as a springboard for further top rank diplomacy between washington and pyongyang so chairman kim has been joining contacts with the most powerful politicians on this planet his two historic summits with the american president donald trump were followed by one with a lot of our putin and it looks like mr kim knows what he's doing when he's playing his geo political game. expert on north korea that we spoke
to say at the summit is a win win for moscow on pyongyang. or. it looks like now he tried to see someone else to help korea out in between a recent bilateral meeting between north korea and the us he was so sure that he can't leave the meeting between the u.s. and north korea but now he needs. some help for put inside here essentially achieved new election and or so now he can have a sport lies from the international community by playing the role for the korea over the korean peninsula as a peacemaker so it would be. for today's summit currently now south korea having air exercises rivero u.s. and south korea cannot be free from u.s. pressure because of a sense for south korea it could be a good to have russia if russia can play the right role as
a mediator because for south korea itself it could be a little bit tricky to work in between a u.s. and north korea. i. mean moving the program on the russian national maria buton it has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison in the united states on friday it's after she pleaded guilty to conspiring to act as an on registered foreign agent essentially working as an undeclared lobbyist the thirty year old you said to have tried to influence the national rifle association and other conservative groups in the u.s. several american political figures were suspected to be involved in court spoke emotionally about the effect this was all her family. my parents discovered my arrest on the morning news they washed in their rural hollows in a savior and i love them dearly but i harm them morally and financially they're
suffering from all of that i destroyed my own life as well i came to the united states not under any orders but with who and now nothing remains but penitence. i have reasons to she's not the main goal of those circumstances she had to put in was to break her will and forces to really acknowledge something she might not have done. sooner or later they are trying to save face but to grab her seized her or put her
behind bars for sure but there is nothing they can charge or wish to issue and to avoid looking ridiculous they sentenced her to eighteen months just to show she is guilty of something. while just on the impact is heard on her family maria's father exclusively told r.t. that he and the rest of his family had been expecting a very different outcome. when you look forward to that we weren't prepared for such a rough and unjust court decision marrier is a russian citizen and given all these investigations she's been caught up in it all even though the mother investigation had nothing to do with her nevertheless the u.s. has found a culprit over the past few months she didn't have any complaints about the condition of her. unlike before she was badly treated i was a bit discriminated against will a bit more in some a tree confinement we will be allowed to two hours
a night with oaxaca maria the lawyer is we will expect a different outcome when i think verdict but it's hard to say how life will be familiar now the most important thing for us is that she returns home taking into account. and we also heard from maria business lawyer who told us he believes a dangerous precedent may have been sent. i think it's impossible to separate from from the politics i think that there is a an underlying crime that he pled guilty to which you can make out under u.s. law but i think the notion of this would have been investigated or and the rest would have been made for a typical foreign national who wasn't russian and wasn't in the car environment where in the us i think it's almost impossible to believe that southern politics has a lot to do with the atmosphere of the case and it's one of those things where if
the elements of the crime are there they were selectively enforced in the sense that it's i think it's hard to argue. the charges unregistered agent it's not foreign it's not secret agent it's not an intelligence agent it literally is just doing something for someone else as being their agent not of maria maria's activities in the us were illegal in and of themselves so there's no classified information there's no political sensitive kind of information given she was not paid by by the russian federation she's in her shoes supported by americans while she was here financially but she got caught up in this and she rushes hysteria. i would fear that other countries will start applying the same standards and saying that any american who went abroad to another country and was involved in civil society organizations and social and met people and networks that's really all
we're talking about doing are anything more serious than that and reported back on those activities some in the u.s. so i think it's very dangerous because if other countries adopted the same attitude going to get a tit for tat situation with countries grabbing civilians of other countries as leverage or for other reasons i think it's a bad idea. on the way a deadly suspected hate crime against the californian jewish community thirty seven men are executed by saudi arabia sparking global condemnation on claims charges were filed.
the people that are now doing those manufacturing jobs also start end of it because that's where the innovation happens on the factory floor so the packers laura's been moved to china as you point out they'll be ciolek china we've moved all of our jobs manufacturing over china now all the innovations in china so we don't it's not it's not created in california built in china now it's going to be created in china built in china.
with the weekly a shooting at a synagogue near sunday in california has left one woman dead and three others wounded including a rabbi police detained a nineteen year old man in connection with the incident which took place during a service on saturday to mark the jewish holiday of passover the suspect reportedly posted an anti semitic message online before the attack authorities are investigating whether the incident was a hate crime well the assault comes exactly six months on from the most devastating attack on the jewish community in recent u.s. history eleven people were killed in the atrocity in pittsburgh the synagogue where it took place most responded to the latest in. and saying the violence must stand human rights lawyer done you'll call it believes it's a dangerous time to be a member of a minority group in america. i'm from pittsburgh i'm in pittsburgh now i was here
when the synagogue was attacked here in pittsburgh. this looks like a very similar incident and it's very clear that these people were attacked because they were jewish and so i believe this is. racism in general which includes you know my semitism. has a very large presence in america i think you know it's something america has struggled with for you know a long time and it's a very dangerous time in this country to be in any racial or ethnic minority and mean that's just a bad i mean you see a world that's very much on fire at the moment in which racial religious and ethnic tensions are high. moving on international human rights groups have condemned a series of executions in saudi arabia this week thirty seven men mostly reportedly
from the muslim minority were killed on supposedly terror and violence related charges one body was even strong up in public following his execution which human rights watch states the killings mark an alarming escalation in the use of the death penalty in the country and also the scribe the punishment those protests and xpress concerned those polish might not have received a fair trial with more interest in your correspondent rough guesstimate of. a few things so as much fear into the hearts of your own people as mass executions the men were executed for adopting terrorists an extremist 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 unlike the king protested against them so serious with their crimes that one
of those executed was also crucified yes crucified in two thousand and nine t. his body strung up for all to see for all to fear. today's mass execution is a chilling demonstration of the saudi arabia no authority and callous disregard for human life it is also yet another gruesome indication of how the death penalty is being used as a political tool to crush dissent from within the country's shia 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 they wanted change better fairer life the king obviously thought they wanted too much.
one of those executed by the way was sixteen years old at the time of his arrest attending a protest apparently he was still a kid now he's 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 bad it shot for crimes that included disobey and saudi rulers biggest blood show since the nine hundred eighty s. who said fictions and common peaked in two thousand and twelve and 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 a four thousand year old law or that someone wrote on a stone pillow to throw a tooth. and literally in this case an eye for an eye saudis took the stone very seriously in two thousand and five accordant saudi arabia ordered a migrants i gagged out as punishment for getting into a fight and putin 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. in response to the widespread condemnation the saudis say they will not
