probe but doesn't question the findings of the miller report and russian interference. and some giant cover caused the latest campaign in norway to coincide with ramadan features a crescent moon as part of its logo sparking anger in some quarters. you're watching our 2 international bringing you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. russian president vladimir putin says he's ready to resolve differences with washington and improve relations although serious sticking points to remain on tuesday he met with the u.s. secretary of state mike pump aoe in the black sea resort city of sochi where russia's foreign minister also held talks with his american counterpart there's a key to the list they just mentioned we also want to restore relations with the
7:03 am
u.s. i hope all the conditions for that are now being created the spine of the exotic way the mother commission has been working in the home it came up with an objective investigation and proved there was no collusion between russia and the u.s. the thing we branded as total nonsense from the very beginning. the clients have agreed to restore communication channels and cooperate on a number of global challenges including on syria afghanistan and north korea earlier in the day pump oil and russia's foreign minister spent 3 hours grappling with pressing global issues among them but as well on which they agree to disagree . on venezuela we have disagreement i urge my russian colleagues to support the venezuelan people as they return democracy to their country the united states and more than 50 other nations agree that the time has come for nicolas maduro to go he's brought nothing but misery to the venezuelan people. and we hope that russians support. for

majority will and democracy to surely use them democracy can be imposed by force the threats coming both from u.s. officials and the opposition leader. who is always reminding us of the possibility of military intervention have nothing to do with democracy at their meeting lavrov and pump didn't show the same level of report as their bosses have in the past that's according to body language expert. people that are getting on very well in the deep mutual wrist genuine respect for each other they turn to much a mirror each of this posture so we'll see each person mirroring the other one's gestures so as an example president truman very often mirrors president putin in terms of the way he sits with his legs set aside a strong lead and then also lot was president truman does what we call a reverse steeple gesture with his hands and these are both polish gestures now with the 2 men today we didn't see any or very little much of a mirroring which tends to show me that although they're there to do
7:05 am
a job. not kind of i don't think we've got a level of pressure relationship that president putin the trip of got the escalating crisis over the iran nuclear deal which the u.s. pulled out of a year ago was also high on the agenda in sochi tehran recently said it would also ditch the deal if other signatories mainly european states did not safeguard its interests as per the agreement washington is now threatening iran with trouble if it gives up its commitments something russia takes issue with. us we have many disagreements on iran now but the fact that we've started talking on this issue gives us hope that we will be able to achieve agreements if both sides show willingness to do that was made clear the united states will continue to apply pressure to the regime in tehran until its leadership is prepared to return to the ranks of responsible nations that do not threaten their neighbors or spread
7:06 am
instability or terror. my pump aoa later tweeted that the talks were a positive step forward and that he hoped russia and the u.s. would manage to establish better relations former u.s. diplomat jim says moscow and washington will have to overcome some big obstacles to improve relations. i understand that the russians especially want to talk about keeping the lines of communication open they talked to the about the americans as their so-called partners and so forth they expressed hope that would now that the moeller investigation is over there will be some freedom for mr trump to pursue the way he talked about during the campaign to improve ties in my opinion that is very unlikely to happen that if you look at things domestically or in the united states not just democrats but even republicans are still all over trump claiming that he is dancing to putin's tune they still accuse the russians of meddling in our elections and if we saw that mr pompei
7:07 am
a warned mr lavrov not to do it again even though the proof is not there that they did it in the 1st place i think that there will be very serious obstacles to any kind of improvement of relations hopefully as mr lavrov suggested they can get some of these working groups on arms control and other issues going with experts diplomats military men to come to some agreement on specific issues but i am not optimistic. the u.s. attorney general william barr has launched a probe into possible misconduct relating to the mohler report specifically he will see if the law was broken when trying to establish whether donald trump colluded with russia our bars decided not to subject that part of the investigation which concluded that there was meddling by moscow to the same scrutiny and picks up the story. since 2016 the democrats have been pushing an investigation of donald trump for allegedly colluding with russia in order to win the $2016.00 elections well now
7:08 am
the report is out and the verdict is no collusion and at this point it looks like cable news will not stop the noise about trump and russia despite the report being released well now we've got a new investigation to cover it seems the republicans are now pushing to investigate the investigators u.s. attorney john durham he is not a rookie by far he investigated the cia and revealed that they had destroyed tapes and evidence of their torture program he also investigated the f.b.i.'s relationship with mafia boss whitey bulger so when it was announced that he would look into whether or not federal officials broke the wall when investigating donald trump the democrats got antsy so did former f.b.i. director james calming and feared personally i feared as a citizen the investigation what investigate that investigations were conducted what would be the crime you'd be investigating so it's a terrible cycle to start perhaps the f.b.i. does have
7:09 am
a reason to be concerned after all they did send an informer who posed as an assistant in order to meet with trump's aide now this informer stephon helper has a long history in fact he was involved in cia spying during the 1980 elections trump says that his campaign was spied on however those who oversaw the operation strongly object to that wording. the dictionary definition of spies surveillance or spying a term i don't particularly like it's not a term of war used by intelligence people it has a negative connotation of a rogue operation out of control not in compliance with the war and that's not the case at all now let's not forget that the feds clung to the now discredited steel down ca in order to apply for a warrant to surveil donald trump now a full 10 days before they applied for the warrant they were already questioning christopher steele's credibility and here's some language from a memo that surfaced. there is a technical human operation run out of moscow targeting the election payments to
7:10 am
those recruited and made out of the russian consulate in miami it is important to know that there is no russian consulate in miami but the intel community presented christopher steele as being credible when they applied for a warrant to spy on trump now at durham will no doubt be looking into whether or not that is legal now let's also not forget that chuck schumer waived his fist on behalf of the american spying agency's take on the intelligence community they have 6 ways from sunday of getting back after everything related to the trial for russia investigation seems to be a widely contested the words presented by one side are presented is false by the other side and amid all these allegations of dishonesty biased partisanship we're expected to believe by both wings of the establishment that what they are saying about russia and their allegations that it meddled in the 2016 elections is absolutely true. well i guess the american people will have to decide what they
7:11 am
want to believe caleb mup and r.t. new york as caleb mentioned there the new investigation seems to raise doubts about the investigators but not about their findings and particular about the conclusion that moscow interfered with the u.s. election political analyst lou rockwell says that's because there is little to no appetite among the u.s. public to question that narrative. they all know there is no evidence of republicans democrats moller. barr i know that there are a lot of americans who have same view i do want to know where the evidence is. but i think the you know the is the establishment the media both political parties. they're all saying one thing and i don't know that the american people will ever see it will they demand it like to think that they would but i'm i'm afraid i don't believe that i'm afraid this is just going to go on and on and on and pompei oh
7:12 am
bolton. and the administration the democrats the republicans and congress the media they're all being the same drum and they're all lawyering and we just have to hope that. president trump will pull back. we just have to see. a number of activists remain in venezuela's former embassy in washington d.c. despite an addiction notice from police they are trying to prevent venezuela opposition figures from taking up residence in the compound who have the backing of the u.s. which recognizes their leader one wideout as president of the country meanwhile going as well in embassies and other countries are often becoming the subject of controversy as peter oliver explains. just a few moments ago the big play is on the world stage with tripping over themselves to come out and recognize one as the legitimate president of venezuela we are ready
7:13 am
to recognize one but i do as interim president we will recognize him as a constitutional interim president. and we need we stand ready to recognize one guy down as the interim president of venezuela. even said representatives to different nations around the world despite them not receiving to. credentials in some countries like here in germany where we have a situation that the ambassador who sits in the embassy just behind me represents a government deemed illegitimate while the representative of the government deemed legitimate holds no diplomatic rank here in germany though that hasn't stopped quite those man from at least calling himself ambassador a little puzzled by what i think it could be more that in venezuela we are living under a dictatorship there needs to be international pressure to end the a separation of powers when we can have a real transitional government so we can hold elections then we can have our
7:14 am
consulates and embassies. full steam ahead for regime change as politicians and news networks cheated each official that defected from the madieu road government but then there was the failed coup attempt and the ball of aryan republic and the standoff outside of the venezuelan embassy in washington. i. mean efficiency internationally and she said. she stopped us in italy any interest here is that we're trying to see the end of the engines in international now with the german parliament tree inquiry finding that germany's recognition of quite though is president was shaky at best on the international law the foreign
7:15 am
ministry here is less than committed when it comes to talking about furthering relations and talks with the representatives of the man who would be the leader of that his way it's a similar story in other nations in spain for example they also welcomed the representative of one without conveying any diplomatic rank basically it means the . mistake why those representatives could meet and talk with foreign ministry officials but very little else despite european leaders joining in the cheese for a change early on in venezuela the reality today is they've taking a position it's much more on the fence but one of these days they're going to have to come down on one side or the other as they find out it can be quite easy to make big political statements but if you don't think through how they're going to be put into action just cause more problems down the line. and pay for germany's left party things states and germany in particular have good reasons not to recognize
7:16 am
why does ambassadors. in foreign policy always recognize states but no individual person and though we see all the. the costs coming out of the situation because of why there was no real power tool has the real power. and for pragmatic reasons. in the recording izing of the by durable embassy here and dealing with with them and called sort of story issues on the other hand the representative of wide or mr gates is recognized as a political representative of quiet all but not as an average at best or pragmatic issue with. foreign ministries corporator embassies of cross outs because you cannot deal with real issues with a president who has no power in the country coming up controversy in norway after
7:17 am
coca-cola launches a special edition of its logo to mark the muslim holiday of ramadan details after the short break. what holds us do something anything. they put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to be rich. but you do like to be crooks that's why the 43 of them can't be good. interested always in the waters of. their city may. seem wrong. just don't all. get to shape
7:18 am
out just to. educate and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back the u.k. apparently isn't ruling out cooperation with the chinese telecoms dime huawei that's despite america's repeated warnings to its allies that the company's 5 g. technology poses a major security threat kate partridge's takes up the story. a major british telecom company vodafone has announced it's going to use equipment provided among
7:19 am
other manufacturers by chinese company huawei as vodafone looks to roll out its 5 g. network across the u.k. from july the 3rd however the u.k. government stands on qual way seems a little bit of and officials are not ruling out working with the chinese company despite numerous attempts by the u.s. to persuade the u.k. to shun huawei is equipment over security concerns while on choose stay the u.k.'s position was forced by foreign secretary jeremy hunt we as a government are going through the process of making an assessment to what extent if at all we are able to use while wait kit we couldn't stop the growth of china if we wanted to so we need to find a way of living alongside this big new power in the world while hans also said the u.k. needs to avoid an unnecessary cold war with beijing adding that china is here to stay as a major economic power whether you like it or not while at the end of last month prime minister tories and they agreed to give huawei access to the u.k.'s new 5 g.
7:20 am
network that over the past few months washington has been trying hard to pressure its allies including the u.k. and the other countries in the 5 eyes alliance not sticke cooperate with the chinese telecom giant citing those security concerns when american officials accuse huawei of espionage on behalf of the chinese government who are always one company we've been concerned about there are others as well as the negotiations proceed i think we're going to see a lot about what chinese companies have done to steal intellectual property to hack into the computer systems not just of the u.s. government but into private companies as well while way has raised serious concerns among u.s. officials for a potential role in cyber espionage given their reported links to china's state security services the united states has also been very clear with our security partners on the threat posed by. another chinese telecom. unease as chinese law
7:21 am
requires them to provide beijing's vast security apparatus with access to any data that touches their network quitman. we must protect our critical telecom infrastructure well meanwhile chairman has expressed the company's willingness to sign no spy agreements with european governments and that includes the view case so perhaps one of america's closest allies may be ignoring washington's warnings regarding qual way as it hasn't ruled out cooperation with this economist jeffrey albert tucker told us the u.s. risks alienating its allies with its trade war against china. u.s. is completely alone in the world today on this this economic warfare that is actually getting more and more intense and it's becoming ever more destructive of the world economy and it's going to result only a nice lead in the u.s. other countries such as the u.k. are just not going to go along every big data company and this goes for google and
7:22 am
apple and everybody else is typically harassed to some extent by the central state under which it serves as a jurisdictional partner and this is this is the way the world i wish it weren't that way and that's probably to some extent true between china and wall way also but let's keep in mind that most of these companies resent this kind of pressure they don't like being muscled by governments that goes with true for chinese companies also they have to they have to play well with with others have to play nicely with others just to get the permission to survive and i don't see any kind of security threat here at all or if there is a security threat there is yet to be any evidence to that effect i don't think that long term the u.s. can do anything to affect the relationships between the u.k. and china i think it's just actually completely crazy the people of the world are going to continue to try to get prosperous by cooperating with each other and if
7:23 am
the u.s. doesn't want to play along it's only they u.s. economy that's going to going to suffer. coca-cola has launched a ramadan version of its logo in norway it features the crescent moon to celebrate the muslim holy month but not everybody though has welcomed the idea. shame on you for promoting women oppressing homosexuals terrorizing. did you also make adverts with the cross in saudi arabia this is getting too stupid if your company's using the crescent moon of islam in norway as a marketing tool during ramadan i will have no choice but to boycott your products now according to the peer research center the number of muslims in norway is on the rise in 2016 they represented almost 6 percent of the population. coca-cola norway has defended the ramadan logo saying it's part of the brand's commitment to diversity and inclusion coca-cola has tried appealing to muslims in previous promo campaigns in other countries as well.
7:24 am
for example last year its dutch wing ran a facebook ad in which a muslim woman gets scornful looks but ends up making friends with a stranger marketing expert look what a lot of things that muslim culture is being exploited by the company to sell its product. that's what's been doing for many years right so that's basically you know the 2nd reversal of christmas as well or countries for christmas is being celebrated with something called and everything else it's basically a construction so try to do the same for or religions as well if their strategy you're in or it's more like a public relations campaign ramadan a real effort i think up right now i think coca-cola wants to make statements that
7:25 am
do for you diversity. that they think oh. do you want to be part of an inclusive society and of course there are commercial company to try to soak up. the sun of israel's prime minister has question just how sincere the german government is when it says it stands by israel although netanyahu does not hold any government position some believe his attitude is shared by many israeli officials as well. it will be nice if you stop interfering in our internal business and stop funding hundreds of radical left wing n.g.o.s newsreel this seek its destruction use the hundreds of millions of euros used for this to fund hospitals schools and churches in germany a recent report by israel claims some european countries including germany have been funding anti israel boycott campaigners going so far as to suggest that some of the money ends up in the hands of palestinian terrorist groups the latest job by the israeli prime minister son is directed at german foreign minister heiko must
7:26 am
that's. despite must evaluate to continue supporting israel's legitimate inst interests and doing his utmost to oppose attempts to isolate the jewish state the german foreign minister made the remarks on the 70th anniversary of israel's admission to the un we heard some contrasting views on the issue from a foreign affairs analyst and in israeli journalist israel germany relations are quite a big us and the west it's kind of the most hypocritical show in town because even if we go on we just not to back far in time merkel herself has voted at least 16 times in the un against israel defies 7 trump resolution to recognize jerusalem while trying to convince other eastern european nations not to follow trump she's also trying to fight 7 trump sanctions over iran germany is trying to undermine israel a sovereign 3 what would you expect other than saying worries stand by israel
7:27 am
what do you expect other than that but reality is pretty much. the other way around tells you something about the atmosphere at the prime minister's residence and these should they worry some people who care about democracy about understanding of democracy and understanding will deign to national law. here there seems to be very very hostile germany is there so all this to say that germany's more sensitive to criticism coming from jerusalem because germany still carries rightly so good feelings for the for the past but this does not mean that those attacks are legitimate the world has a right criticize the israeli or because the israeli occupation is a clear violation of the international law and it is the duty of the world to stand

7:30 am
if we ever needed an anti-war movement it's obviously now trying this hyper aggressive foreign policy faces little resistance from the mainstream media in fact numerous liberal news outlets function as a cheering section for the president where is the moral outrage. greetings and sal you tasia us well mark watchers there are bad days and then there are bare monsanto bad days it appears that the pharmaceutical giant is having quite the no good very bad day after news broke that a california jury delivered a $2000000000.00 verdict bomb against the company on monday yes that's $2000000000.00 with a b. .
