5:01 am
a new video game released by president. meant to give the game a try. hello there is midday here in moscow you're watching r.t. international now the u.s. secretary of state might be cancelled what was to be an informal visit to moscow he's diverted to brussels at the last minute instead to discuss iran before setting off though he did give an interview in which he outlined the u.s. position for the country. iran is the major destabilizing in influence in the middle east and we aim to fix that our aim is not war our aim is a change in the behavior of the iranian leadership we hope the iranian people will get what they finally want what they did so richly deserve. ok let's get more details now from pete oliver he joins us from berlin. then skip to moscow at the
5:02 am
last minute why the urgent need to be in brussels today. well it wasn't expected but he's picked the right day to change these plans at the last minute because in brussels the foreign affairs council of the european union a meeting that means that all 28 member states foreign ministers are going to be in one place in one room as well as federica mockery me the high representative for foreign affairs of the e.u. basically the e.u. foreign minister all going to be in the same place at the same time they had intended that they'd be discussing libya and what was going on in that country and how they could try and sort out the problems that libya is currently facing that's all got out of the window off the agenda and the new agenda is firmly focused on iran others although we will be here all day with a busy agenda so we'll see julian day how and if we manage to arrange a meeting he's always welcome obviously but that i'm not precise planted at the
5:03 am
moment as we continue to fully support the nuclear deal with iran as full implementation it has been and continues to be for us a key element of nonproliferation company fishman today nobody else in the region so we'll continue to support it as much as we can with on our instruments and on our political will that this is very well known i think both in washington and in turn around. we agree with other e.u. states the nuclear deal is necessary for our security and it's going to prevent iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. well last week iran announced that it would not honor all of the aspects of the $2015.00 nuclear deal it came a year after the united states unilaterally pulled itself out of the deal in wealth wholeheartedly now following the u.s. is pull out of the agreement well the european union castigated them absolutely slammed washington for doing this saying that put at risk all of these months and
5:04 am
months of work that went into getting the deal over the line back in 2015 of course when iran announced last week that they were intending to pull out of some parts of the deal that also prompted well some discord within parts of the european union with some members then turning on iran and launching criticism at them. iran has agreed to vital compliance measures if they break that deal then there will be consequences in terms of how european powers react so we urge the iranians to think very long and hard before they break. the end of today nothing could be worse than iran leave in the agreement there are no sanctions today from you because iran has so far all respected the commitments we it has undertaken this kind meet mess and not just back to the question of considering. well the decision last week by to
5:05 am
iran puts the european union in a pretty difficult position because they've been so strong in their backing for iran since the united states pulled out but what we've been hearing since that decision was made by iran what we've been hearing from the iranian president hassan rouhani is that they don't want to pull out of the deal in total because that would essentially play into washington's hands. the united states wanted to pull out of the g c p a way in order to make iran withdraw from a deal the day after so the us would be able to refer the case to the un security council to ease the burden on the shoulders of the u.s. to redouble and ratchet up the pressure on iran iran did not fall into this trap so my pompei o heads to brussels the secretary of state will hold meetings we expect with the foreign affairs council of the european union to discuss iran further spare a thought though for those journalists that do travel with mr pompei oh this is the 2nd last minute change of destination they face that is many weeks last week he was
5:06 am
supposed to be heading here to berlin for a talk with angela merkel they took off from helsinki at the last minute well the journalists were told you're not going to live in they ended up in baghdad to talk about iraq last week this week he's heading to brussels for more talks all iran on tuesday though he will head to russia he'll be meeting president vladimir putin the foreign minister sergey lavrov in sochi i think we can just about expect that iran will be on the schedule for talks there is in brussels on monday though we're expecting some information to come out throughout the day we'll be keeping you updated as information comes out of brussels of course here at r.t. yeah we'll come back to you later thanks peter that was artie's peter all over there reporting from. the pentagon is said to have developed a secret weapon with a missile with spinning blades nicknamed the ninja bomb intended to reduce civilian casualties in drone strikes it's designed to be more accurate than explosives and
5:07 am
he's kind of mopping reports. drone warfare has long been part of the u.s. government's war on terror and it's gotten ugly on more than one occasion. so. killing people by these drones basically sitting on a screen and eliminating people. dehumanizing them treating them. as if you know the from some other planet not giving them a basic right of proving their innocence i mean it it violates the norms of justice on top of that it's all classified so leaking the methodology behind what human
5:08 am
rights groups have called a method for extrajudicial executions can get you in a lot of trouble for daniel hale an n.s.a. officer and now suspected whistleblower that could mean up to 15 years in jail that echoes chelsea manning say she's just recently been released from jail for refusing to testify before a grand jury but she could return soon as she's already got another subpoena now to be fair u.s. leaders have long talked about their deep conviction over civilian deaths the architecture of the legal texture around the use of drone strikes or other committed strikes wasn't as precise as it should have been and there's no doubt that civilians were killed but shouldn't have been. i think that over the last several years we have worked very hard to avoid and prevent those kinds of tragedies from taking place apparently it was u.s. president barack obama who ordered the creation of
5:09 am
a new missile device that would increase the percentage in accuracy of these predator drone strikes and minimize civilian casualties it's apparently called the ninja bomb now it may be the pentagon's worst kept secret they have not officially confirmed it but so far several military officials have said that it's being used it's argued that the new missile might enhance the image of the united states in the countries that are already subject to u.s. military drone strike operations unlike a regular missile it doesn't explode instead it deploys so. blades that fanned out of its casing moments before impact blades are so sharp they can cut through vehicles and slice their target into pieces so we've got blades flinging through the air in order to reduce civilian casualties sounds plausible enough apparently the new ninja bomb has already been used in iraq libya syria somalia and yemen now the mastermind behind the suicide bombing on the u.s.s. cole back in the year 2000 was apparently taken out by and ninja bomb in january
5:10 am
according to pentagon reports so is this new missile the answer will it improve the image of the drone strike program in the eyes of the american public what do you think of the drone strike program. ok with it i know nothing about it it's pretty awful actually we have this thing now called a ninja bomb and what it is is it and when it detonates it sends blades through the air and the idea is this will minimize civilian casualties we can pick the terrorist we want to kill send the ninja bomb and fewer civilians will be killed you know that the blades kill the. terrorists and not the civilians it doesn't seem like that you can target maybe specific people with that seems like you'll just. spread out a lot of. a lot of damage i think that's also did a pretty good program them limit civilian casualties are going to do not that's not happening i think if somebody suggested that that. i had i don't think that is even real i don't think it really busy. room. actually is i think this is
5:11 am
a. propaganda whatever you want to call it that way to. look there's a kinder gentler way showing. through so as a nation where. you have their courage their viewer writes i think this is some who are trying to placate the public in the united states probably more store around the world with technology. now. there are. actually your article. was there some version where the general thought we are acceptable well we have asked the pentagon to comment on these reports we'll let you know when we get a reply. but the french left wing leader sean luke militia has denounced the anti russian and pro nato histeria you comes after he was featured in
5:12 am
a video game released by emmanuel micron's youth movement in the form of a russian insect party show had been ski gives the game a try as almost a fight tooth and nail in the forthcoming european elections it seems that they've got a new weapon to utilize it this video game now it's similar to one that we've known since the $1980.00 s. so it does feel a little bit retro and this is the main character here the idea is clear this is meant to represent natalie lou as so who is top of the list for all march in those elections and she is the heroine. so if not you was who is the heroine of this game who are the baddies well it's pretty clear on the right it's a marquee in the pen with the national rally and on the left it's usual nuke militia with france about this even
5:13 am
a bit of donald trump thrown in there for good mix. no collusion no obstruction so they move the game is pretty simple no clue was trying to find the missing stars from the european flag and that's because they've been stolen by those baddies so let's find those stars. come on. it's. well the idea of using a video game to perhaps try and boost the youth vote isn't something new in fact it was done by from back in 2017 election this is of course the 1st big test that matt corn has been through since he was elected president back in
5:14 am
2017 so if he wants to avoid game over then perhaps we need to do more than produce a tutti game to fend off that mounting pressure from the left the right and the center and of course to raise those gloomy freighting. r.t. paris. divers from russia's neptune underwater expedition have been studying the remains of a 19th century shipwreck found at the bottom of the black sea near crimea and in the process they have stumbled across some long lost treasures.

5:18 am
begin investigating the front runner for the democratic presidential nomination joe biden soft that's over his alleged meddling in ukrainian political affairs something biden denies democrats say trump is just trying to get rid of a strong opponent he was down of as the story. he is an american politician of such scale that he might even get a holywood produced bio pic appearing in theaters is son is an entrepreneur doing business with other countries and some people suspect that the father of political shotgun is using his reputation of fire power to make sure his son's business doesn't sail into choppy waters this is what you may have heard in the news for years about donald trump and he's run from junior yet now it's the story about trump's 2020 democratic rival joe biden and his son he is already got
5:19 am
a trump trademarked nickname and in fact has been on the president's mind for a while one of the democrats. said that he he sleepy person. said that he heard from a lot of foreign leaders and they want him to be president of course they do so they could continue to rip of the united states and i i said general community because. i felt like joe biden to but this time it's more than just a junior school style name calling because trump suspects biden pulled quite a number of diplomatic leavers to have a prosecutor who was making his son's business difficult fired outrageous behavior if it had happened in america and perhaps even worse though since all of the above
5:20 am
allegedly happened in another country in ukraine in fact before announcing his presidential ambitions biden gave plenty of reason for speculation. a commitment from portia and go they would take action against the state prosecutor and they did tell you not get the hugo or i so you know i get. a 1000000000 i'm going to be leaving here i think it was about 6 hours i look guys and leave in 6 hours if the prosecutor is not fired you're not getting the money well son of a. fire trump almost sent his lawyer rudy giuliani to ukraine to investigate but giuliani canceled this trip because the fallout was ferocious explain to me why biden shouldn't be investigated if his son got millions from a russian loving crooked ukrainian only gold while he was vice president and point man for ukraine ukrainians are investigating and your fellow dems are interfering
5:21 am
election is 70 months away let's on straight now and when i say ferocious i mean for roche us. it is highly unethical for the president's personal lawyer to tell me what visuals from a foreign government to see if they can influence somehow the upcoming presidential election we've had enough of that we will do everything we can up to the breaking of the wall it's a very it's a trail of democracy to work with other countries to affect our elections it's just a flat out betrayal. donald trump and his ties his campaign's ties to the russians we're going to investigations i mean an investigation with a special prosecutor donald trump is either going to be impeached by the congress or impeached at the ballot box the fact that you may not be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt occurred criminal conspiracy doesn't mean that there's an
5:22 am
absence of evidence of crime seriously mr president old you horses stop this persecution it's funny though the democrats never seem to like it when the tables turn even if there is hard and you know hard feeling evidence that something could be very foul here after all they conducted this. false investigation for the last 2 years costing taxpayers millions and millions of dollars really just abusing this president has family why would the democrats not now say that if there's an allegation of a possible president out in front of an election why would the democrats not want that followed through on why would they even want to nominate somebody who looked this suspicious to me they should be the ones calling for the investigation and the scandals sure as the in turn city of america's political desire for justice world trump must go down by you can get a pass after all is
