ministers peter oliver has more. michael. very clearly today from from the us the most responsible attitude to take is and clearly should be and that of maximum maximum restraint avoiding any escalation on a military site well this was a meeting that was all set it was all planned there was supposed to be sitting down the e.u. foreign ministers as well as the high representative for foreign affairs federica mockery me she's essentially the use overarching equivalent of a foreign minister they were supposed to be sat down talking about libya they tried to do that as much as they could however might probably peo the u.s. secretary of state he decided he was going to be turning up. of course that has apparently put the cat amongst the pigeons if i listen to some of the people i've been talking to among the diplomats in brussels federica mockery they're far from happy might pompei o was in town on this day he wasn't supposed to be here he was
7:03 pm
supposed to be moscow he did turn up and this is what represented the for foreign affairs had to say when it came to the iran deal they need to keep it alive we. still invite iran to comply with all its nuclear commitments and that is a full determination on the european union side and also all that understates expressed that today very clearly and continue to implementing it for all of the nuclear deal that it and federica mockery and he said all of the parts of the iran deal just then because last week iran said that it would not continue to uphold all parts of the deal the 2015 deal that came on the anniversary of the united states saying that it would pull out wholeheartedly from the agreement now the u.s. decision to do that donald trump's decision to unilaterally pull the u.s. out of it it caused an awful lot of problems and it's all. a lot of a u.
7:04 pm
nations member states also brussels itself condemning the united states for doing so now we've also started to see some of the 28 member states starting to to question iran well ideas when it comes to whether they should stay in it should the uranian government decide that they want to pull out wholeheartedly from the 2050 nuclear deal of it's we agree with other e.u. states the nuclear deal is necessary for us security and it's gong to prevent iran from obtaining nuclear weapons iran has agreed to vital compliance measures if they break that deal and 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 so there
7:05 pm
are new sanctions to do from europe because iran has so far all respected the commitments we give has undertaken this commitment or not respected the question of considerate this is the 2nd change of schedule it is many weeks for those that travel with mike pompei of the u.s. secretary of state that things that have been changed at the last minute just last week it was supposed to be coming here from helsinki to berlin they ended up going to baghdad this time around they're supposed to be going to moscow they end up in brussels they are heading off to russia for tuesday at a meeting with sergey lavrov the russian foreign minister and we can certainly expect iran to be pretty high on the agenda meanwhile russia's foreign minister says he plans to confront his u.s. counterpart on how washington intends to resolve the iran crisis think a lot of raf will be meeting like pump air inside cheek by twenty's day. after those dismiss that i absolutely will produce tomorrow really. ask mike compare how
7:06 pm
the us is going to deal with the crisis that was made by washington's unilateral decisions i hope tomorrow's talks will be frank iran has the right to partly suspend the implementation of the nuclear deal if other parties don't keep their commitments in shorts now that the united states is left the iranian nuclear deal and is trying to get the european union to suspend to suspend its implementation of the deal. to have a right a legal right to also suspend their implementation of the deal in effect the deal is collapsing because of the united states sanctions because of how determined the united states is to torpedo this deal and to get the iranians to do what they want nevertheless the united states is as i said adamant and believes that iran must be stopped that iranian behavior is the stabilizing iran is the major destabilizing in influence in the middle east and we aim to fix that our aim is not
7:07 pm
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 notably however foreign minister lavrov said that they plan to have an honest discussion face to face this question with my pump air tomorrow and see how things out things will go from there . middle east on a less curvy afros the rb believes the iran nuclear deal can still be rescued. iran has given 60 days to europe to clean up and live up to its commitments and we are now are starting to see a renewed effort on the part of europe to do exactly that and more fully the meeting serves as a fresh reminder to the army. corps who policy toward europe is speeding and europe is determined to was to be just as russia and china are so i'm cautiously
7:08 pm
optimistic about the lives. military of the other signator it is to join forces and preserve the deal in the interest of even our global peace and america's need to make a u.-turn under policy come back to the t. ball negotiated with. prosecutors in sweden have reopened a sexual assault investigation against wiki leaks co-founder julian assigns they are now seeking an extradition warrant against a fan she once he served his prison term in the u.k. police reports well these allegations date back to 2010 and the investigation into them was dropped in 2017 swedish prosecutors were unable to go ahead with the investigation while a songe was essentially stuck inside london's ecuadorian embassy but when swedish prosecutors dropped the investigation they said that it could be reopened if the
7:09 pm
situation allowed so when a sun dress dragged out of london's ecuadorian embassy last month the woman had made the allegations against him and said that she would like the case to be reopened and that's precisely what has happened stockholm has requested julian assange has extradition to sweden take a listen to what the prosecutor had to say. at a press conference a little bit earlier on mark new circumstances have brought about the need to revise or previous decision after reviewing the current state of diploma near investigation my assessment is that there are still grounds to suspect the mysterious songe committed rape and now the statute of limitations on this case expires in august 2020 so there isn't much time for the swedish authorities to act of course a songe also has a u.s. extradition request hanging over his head at the moment so there is kind of
7:10 pm
a legal model in place here and in a pit is that only the home secretary is able to decide which of these cases should take precedence and sort of potentially allow the more pressing swedish case to be prioritized and it looks now that it's going to be a political decision as to where a song potentially is extradited to fast technically he can be sent to sweden and the u.s. can then sort of update it as extradition request and request that he be extradited over to the u.s. from sweden but the u.k. would have to give sweden permission to extradite assange over to the u.s. as songes legal team would be able to challenge every one of those moves so we're looking once again down the barrel of a very lengthy legal battle with 3 different jurisdictions in place now a songe has always rejected all the allegations the swedish allegations against him
7:11 pm
he's always said that he sought refuge in london's ecuadorian embassy not because he was afraid of being questioned by the sweden but because he was always concerned that the swedish case was simply a pretext for a more serious u.s. extradition request where he could face serious charges for his publishing activities and. leaks published the iraq war logs which others neat government sort of diplomatic and military files they were deeply embarrassing to washington there's now that new tool video. collateral damage which shows appears to show us soldiers killing iraqi civilians the news today now means that we have 3 different jurisdictions 3 different countries involved in this a songe legal saga he's wanted in washington he's wanted in stockholm and in the meantime he's in prison here in the u.k.
7:12 pm
serving out his 50 week sentence for skipping bail back in 2012. the lawyer for the swedish woman who claims to have been assaulted by a song in 2010 welcomed the decision to reopen the case she said the swedish legal system needs to show that no one was above the law. we spoke to wiki leaks editor in chief a kristinn hrafnsson he believes sweden was pressured into pursuing the case against assad's. julius ours has always been ready and willing to cooperate with the swedish investigation throughout the years and that he will welcome this opportunity to clear his name and. get this matter over and done with there are many of the normal t. s. in these highly politicized crosas with the change of julian. worldwide. the crown prosecution service in the u.k. was ready the driver's seat in this case it seems according to the emails that
7:13 pm
routine is a little inclination requests everything that the king says julian as well as these this is a little sized it is very hard to see that the opportunity to install will fair trial is read him in the u.k. or in the united states especially because that is exactly what all ready pertains to and on would actually do so as to face trial for publishing the truth. a trade war between the u.s. and china has sparked a sell off on global stock markets and not abating imposed import taxes on u.s. goods worth $60000000000.00 in response to u.s. tariffs on friday washington hikes tariffs on $200000000000.00 of chinese goods the latest tip for tat exchange between the 2 countries came of the trade talks failed to produce the deal china has already imposed levies on imports from the u.s. worth one $110000000000.00 and the latest measure targets $5000.00 kids ranging
7:14 pm
from coffee beef and beer to t.v.'s president trunk tweeted that china needs to strike a deal with the u.s. to end the dispute. i say openly to president xi and all of my many friends in china that china will be hurt very badly if you don't make a deal because companies will be forced to leave china for other countries too expensive to buy in china you had a great deal almost completed and you backed out. while trump insists that america is actually benefiting from the trade war with china by cashing in on import taxes but his chief economic advisor appears to disagree doesn't and says china doesn't that china it pays the terrace they may suffer consequences but it's us businesses and us consumers who pay correct and yes to some extent and yeah i don't disagree with that again both sides both sides will suffer on this. international and independent china especially if found you
7:15 pm
a long delays both countries are digging themselves in for a long trade or of what we're running out of there is very soon because you love us that is not exporting anything near china's exports but on the other hand there are more. territory. leaders. in services including us companies rating in china. including even the possibility of selling some u.s. treasuries just as the here. in the u.s. stock market so i think that we have some really kind of actions on both sides both sides on our position themselves for a longer game meanwhile there's a great deal of correct to them which because don't forget these are the largest economies in the world and they are the center of the global supply chain but now with the straight war all the way. all the benefits of a trade cut will disappear. the u.s.
7:16 pm

7:17 pm
know world big part of the lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back antiwar groups are raising the pressure on countries over the armed sales to saudi arabia on friday a sound as ship that was due to load weapons in a northern french port was forced to says so without them off the activists blocks the congo bensky has the story. but amnesty international said that several
7:18 pm
european union states of actually failed to meet their obligations when it comes to the arms trade treaty and that's because they've sold weapons to saudi arabia live with them that will likely be used in the war in yemen the bar has been bouncing off european ports like a pinball this is a serious test of countries resolve to uphold their obligations under the arms trade treaty and common position on arms exports several states have food this test in the space of just a few days the concern is that these weapons that are being sold to saudi arabia could be used against civilians in the conflict in yemen this is a conflict that has been going on for several years since 201410000 people have been killed and millions have been left on the brink of starvation it's been described by the united nations as the world's worst humanitarian disaster in it
7:19 pm
saying that no e.u. state which suspects that this is happening or is aware that its weapons could be used in war crimes should sell any weapons at all to a country that's doing that the voyage reminds us that they prefer to allow lucrative global arms trade to continue to operate behind a veil of secrecy amnesty has said that in the last week one saudi ship has been making its way around several european states trying to pick up arms containers or weapons from those states now we know that last week that that ship actually talked in antwerp in belgium and we understand that it received a shipment of ammunition now it then try to fix it and fail to visit some other european states now we've heard from the belgian foreign minister who's ignored which that there is concern about the sale of these weapons. or you would be good to see. deliveries to saudi arabia if it was shown that had been used in ongoing
7:20 pm
conflicts such as in yemen which case the regional government must make that decision. now here in france the french defense minister that's florence parley had actually confirmed last week that france was due to more weapons on this saudi ship. the arms delivery. greenman 2 issues made a few years ago. however it came a little bit unstuck with protests taking place outside the port of large that's because there was a leaked investigation in the last month a show which alleges that the french government has been made aware by secretive military notes that weapons sold by france society arabia could have been used on the front line in yemen and could have been used against civilians and that has caused huge concern here because of that those protests went to the port and that
7:21 pm
shipment wasn't able to take place the president might call us also spoken out about this last week he confirmed that he had had confirmation from riyadh that's the capital in saudi arabia that those shipments of arms wouldn't be used in the conflict in yemen but despite that many people here in france are unhappy and easy with the idea that france is selling weapons anyway to saudi arabia the controversy continues as they saudi ship continues to go around european ports attempting to load weapons from several states and human rights organizations have just said that enough is enough and these on shipment sales just stopped now international affairs commentator jonathan steele gave us his views on the dispute on what it could mean for the arms trade with saudi arabia. it could be greece i suppose is no just the obvious place that the ship could go. faster know that richard ford
7:22 pm
pickup so. it's a question of discussing with the greek authorities if they have arms if they're willing to let you should talk and take on your arms these activists raise the issue they had looked at the bill of lading of the ship and see that they were picking up guards so that's created a storm which obviously these governments welcome to avoid but none of these governments really prevented arms going to saudi arabia you've all continued to send arms it's a question of whether there's enough political weight behind it just as the activists to put pressure on the governments to change their policy. french authorities are investigating a complaint from le monde newspaper it claims the u.s. based on growth chemical giants monsanto compiled a hit list of key people it hope to influence over pesticides. because of all the.
7:23 pm
debates and the. fact we can. just took off it is a. half yours and what you do being the french paper claims the so-called monsanto file dates back to 2016 and contains some 200 names it includes journalist lawmakers and politicians who have been critical of the company's practices lamond alleges the list was drawn up to sway views of those a gates the use of the glass for state based pesticides one's on tow was bought by the german chemical giant last year in a 60 $3000000000.00 deal bayer itself has apologized for the incident and suggested monsanto use the same practices across europe that's now opened its own probe into the case and 11 jots an activist from the future generations group was one of those on the list. the dicier contain information on
7:24 pm
our organization and its head we're concerned about that in may also has private information obtained by monsanto in any case it is known that these procedures are illegal there is no law that allows collection and storage of private data on people our organization will file a lawsuit to at least shed a light on whether they have any other unpublished you know that brazil court well monsanto has faced here criticism for its use of life estate in its roundup weed killer a chemical compound produced by the firm is found in the most popular way of kill in the u.s. it's being traced in food to drinking water and it's been linked to cancer however monsanto itself where fears all the claims about dangerous but 11 just again believes the use of such chemicals must stricter controls. sure if you just were also concerned about the fact that the least mentions private
7:25 pm
persons politicians journalists who are pressurized to support the company to secure its place in the market of compounds which by the way are considered to be carcinogenic in fact today the company has a quite negative image which is clearly the situation in france has become active specifically over the guy from say the shoe you know the national center for cancer disease research said life this it is the man herbicide produced by monsanto which probably can be carcinogenic when johnson and seems then we've been watching a huge backlash from some farmers from the our great culture sector as a whole here where there is all the world headlines for you based on our way back in just over 30 minutes with the latest c than. we have a situation that is very new and that's why. it's like i feel
7:26 pm
like before the war were told when people were born there and there was no go to school or to know that. so the boy was sleeping right out of the world and. as a medical man the widespread complicity is good code of people today. in many diseases because of this would you liberal the. south has to say on his attorney one employee health plan one was a little bit. more which is. there's a real. yeah yeah you know you get out the guys who know people it's you posting it's been made before it's you know it was good. that the thought of you.
