headlines not in the u.s. the pew draws its embassy and consulate staff from iraq citing the alleged threat from iran backed forces. facebook announces a new one strike policy to block uses sharing violent content is part of the bid to rid the platform of terrorist material i guess discuss the make. absolutely necessary given the volume of content but the technology simply isn't up to it gets so they're dragging their feet. and they know exactly what has been done and they're simply not doing it and donald trump steps up the ongoing trade war with china claiming this will benefit farmers at home although so far american agricultural producers things seem to be experiencing

a downturn instead we hear that story. at this point we are definitely not seeing any benefit it's it's just pain. hello good morning it's just going to 8 o'clock here in moscow you're watching international now the u.s. government has ordered all non-emergency staff to leave iraq overnight alleged threat coming from forces controlled by iran earlier we discussed the details with artie's daniel hoare kids. is now although he's have reached new heights the u.s. has issued a security alert to all its non-emergency personnel in iraq asking them to immediately depart from the u.s. embassy in baghdad and from the consulate bill that's an order that relates to all non-emergency personnel why the sudden panic well this security alert mentions no.
1:02 am
threats or reasons u.s. officials have of course previously referred to what they describe as substantial threats to personnel relating to rein activity in the region in particular their iranian proxies in both iraq and syria it's unclear though as to what exactly these threats are or indeed why the threat level has jumped now what is quite clear is that the u.s. does want to show it's taking things seriously and that there is a clear and present danger from iran or its proxies to americans in the region we'll see what happens 9 with iran if they do anything it will be a very bad mistake if they do anything i'm hearing little stories about iran if they do anything they will suffer greatly we'll see what happens with the right of course u.s. forces and other u.s. workers in the region do face a level of background threat it's a volatile area rife with conflict and armed groups on all sides of hostilities nevertheless though officials haven't explained these recent developments and how any sort of iranian threat would actually manifest itself to harm u.s.
1:03 am
personnel tensions were wrapped up last week when the u.s. deployed an aircraft carrier group complete with bombers to the region iran has described all such moves as psychological warfare. stating that they're not looking for confrontation or war but they would respond to anything they viewed as u.s. aggression that some. view of that echoed by washington as well now the root of all these recent troubles this reason this collation was of course trumps withdraw from iran nuclear treaty that was criticized roundly by the other signatories party to that agreement it was followed by the threats of sanctions saber rattling and rhetoric on all sides now germany and the netherlands have also suspended their military training operations in iraq interesting enough also citing the risk of potential attacks from iranian proxies although i do have to add the german defense ministry have also added there's no concrete threat once again and the situation is of international concern to many countries moscow one states. we have received no
1:04 am
sort of reassurance from what compare on resolving these tensions they are predicting an escalation in the gulf in the coming weeks and months so certainly no sign of things cooling there anytime soon that hawkins there will a member of the baghdad security committee says iraq is not facing any danger from iran despite claims from the u.s. that is no sign of the internal threats or the challenges as we see it from internally in iraq the problem between iran and the united states just seems still. the gates or outside the walls of iraq isn't. just see to this matter it is considered here. a show of will between the 2 countries the 2 are 2 powers and we don't be here in iraq we don't believe that there will be
1:05 am
a real. war between the 2 sides we think it's just. a war of words meanwhile a senior general in the u.s. led coalition in syria and iraq is question the idea of a heightened threat level with more on this his cape partridge. the does seem to be rather a difference of opinion a breakdown in communication between u.s. military central command and the coalition's 2nd in command over the threat posed by iran though there's been no increased threat from iranian backed forces in iraq in syria we're aware of their presence clearly. and we monitor them along with a whole range of others because that's the environment we're in we're british major general chris cake of the coalition's deputy commander for strategy and information seems to refute the trumpet ministrations claim iran is mobilizing groups in iraq and syria to attack american forces with his comments also seem to contradict the
1:06 am
claim terrine is an escalating threat u.s. national security adviser john bolton has long promoted action against iran but the british general says there's little to fear there are a range of threats to american and coalition forces in iraq or syria we most of them all about forces is clearly one of them. and i'm not going to go into the detail of it but there are a substantial number of militia groups in iraq and syria and we don't see any increased threat from many of them at the station press to explain the discrepancy gekas seem to limit his earlier remarks to a group of militia in iraq called the popular mobilization forces while some are backed by iran but the coalition considers them compliant yet later a u.s. military central command made a terrifying statement stressing iran is a threat well if both a senior british commander and america's central command share the same intelligence have similar information on terrorist locations airstrikes and danger
1:07 am
zones how can i give statements that are so different the u.k.'s ministry of defense has distanced itself from the remarks made by the british major general claiming he spoke in the capacity of a military officer in the u.s. led coalition in iraq and syria it added that his remarks speak about us. garia not the overall geopolitical situation in the region major general great career was speaking about a very specific area in which the u.s. led operation inherent resolve operates he wasn't speaking about the wider geopolitical situation in the region but considering the specific area he's talking about is iraq and syria you'd think his words might hold some weight because for the last few decades every time the alliance fights together so you always see caution from the british side or the americans tend to be more gung ho they share the same intelligence and if they're to blaring contradictions it doesn't really look good for the coalition obviously one of them is lying or at least it seems to
1:08 am
be that there is clear misinformation from one side. now paris has hosted a summit on countering online extremism in the wake of the crisis shootings in new zealand part of the focus was on facebook which failed to prevent the killer from live streaming the massacre the social media giant has now announced a new one strike policy anybody sharing violent context without violent content story without context will be blocked facebook has also pledged 7 and a half $1000000.00 for research to detect banned content new zealand's prime minister called it a good 1st step. social media connects people and so we must ensure that in our terms to prevent harm that we do not compromise then target all pillar of society that is freedom of expression but that right does not include the freedom to broadcast mass murder and so new zealand will present a call to action in the name of christ church asking both nations and private corporations to make changes to prevent the posting of terrorist content online to
1:09 am
ensure its efficient and fast removal and to prevent the use of live streaming as a tool for broadcasting terrorist attacks or just remind you back in march a gunman killed 51 people into mosques in christchurch the video was uploaded some one and a half 1000000 times on facebook in the 24 hours that followed the live stream what we heard from privacy activists bill new media analyst lionel and also anti terror expert jennifer braden about this they gave us their views on efforts to ban violent content on social media. you have an army not just with facebook but with twitter there's an army of contractors employees and other people who are there to immediately get it off right away as has been stated this happens with people that espouse certain political opinions and other ideologies and so now we're talking about you know we're talking about getting off far more egregious things they have this technology not only do they have that they have hundreds upon thousands of
1:10 am
employees of contractors of people whose jobs it is to sit there and to see what's coming up and the moment something that is violent that is agree just that is horrific comes up they can shut it down and media only monitoring no moderating in real time what these videos are and what becomes and is funding some research to try and improve their ability to detect this in real time with sort of automated means which is absolutely necessary given the volume of content but the technology simply isn't up to it yet and that we need to go a long way to improve the technology so that we can have a better or do a better ability to moderates in real time using some form of automation the idea of somebody actually showing in broadcasting real time the slaughter of human beings i make it even simpler what if this was an actual real time live stream of child pornography nobody would be even debating this i would say you've got to fix this technology and now this is nothing to do with freedom of expression
1:11 am
nothing to do with the dissemination of ideas in no way does it violate and by the way very quickly safe book has the most incredible celerity what it comes to shutting down and immediately knocking somebody off who a spouse is a poll a little opinion just by merely supporting somebody so i don't want to hear anybody tell me that the technology is not there or there's no way to monitor this because let me tell you something if this war is something that was contrary to the zuckerberg world view. would be awful for anybody even thought so they're dragging their feet it's nonsense and they know exactly what has to be done and they're simply not doing it to me to recognize the fact that a 1000000 copies were taken down effectively and we need to actually take our ads off to facebook the fact that it did take down so many different copies what do we do if there is an event that is not necessarily being filmed by the perpetrator but
1:12 am
it's already being filmed by hundreds of thousands of other people be it the olympics or the world carp or the whole show any large gathering which is already being filmed i mean we had a pipe bomb go off at the atlanta olympics that killed 2 people and injured a 100 if we had had small bones back then there would have been any number of different videos being all being shot civil taney asli and i say dealing with all those in real time would be almost impossible but those weren't the perpetrators do you punish them is that reporter do you allow that what about people who were filming atrocities in miami more they're doing genuine reporter do you allow that if it appears to be atrocious attacks and therefore we actually have to be slightly more realistic than saying oh facebook's got the technology it can do it come on get your move together move on there are a far more complicated challenges. now another nice chinese telecom giant huawei
1:13 am
has issued a statement warning u.s. authorities their latest move won't make america quote more secure or stronger adding that washington could end up having to pay more for lower quality 5 g. equipment well that's after the u.s. department of commerce place well away on a trade blacklist the decision comes hard on the heels of donald trump declaring a national emergency to protect national computer networks from what he described as foreign cerise foreign adversaries are increasingly creating an explosive vulnerabilities in information and communications technology and services which store and communicate via. amounts of sensitive information the executive order says that these foreign adversaries are a major national security threat of course china has said there has been no evidence that wall way worked directly with the chinese government which is what the u.s. is very much concerned about this comes days after the u.s. and china fail to meet a trade deal now the u.s. has threatened time and time again countries who continue to use while away
1:14 am
products and have said that they will roll back on sharing intelligence with these countries australia and japan and so far have been to countries who have adhere to the u.s. and not using outlaw way however just recently the u.k. and germany said that they want to allow 5 g.'s a huawei with limited access into their countries and the u.s. has already been angered by this information the u.s. bans this chinese company from doing business here in the u.s. and this can also delay than 5 g. in the race for tech rasmussen he's the executive director of the year right just sent to tell us that the latest move by the u.s. against could end up affecting ordinary consumers on the tumor you'll see. basically you potentially could see a slowdown in 5 g.s. women taishan those that are armed but to not go along with the while we're buying
1:15 am
. that could impact impact of different things a lot of different new innovations and things like that could be could be impacted in. just creates a big mess and far as trade goes and i think the consumers overall will wind up paying a price at some point in time whether or not getting the type of industry and innovation that they're expecting or to suffer community in the 5 g. area or focus a you need to deal with this company and that's it and so really was . the competitive nature that we advocating. will stay with the u.s. china trade war because u.s. stocks to take quite a tumble over the past few days g.t. to attack terrorists being imposed by beijing and washington on each other and american farmers are apparently among those who are losing at.
1:16 am
the prices that we can get forever so i says put as. close to $2.00 a bushel below breakeven which is. nobody can can make that last very long and stay in business. at this point we are definitely not seeing any benefits it's it's just pain. however you feel about the chinese market and the way that they've treated. us
1:17 am
trade wise in the past it's the fact that the chinese market is is has what has made us profitable in growing hopefully in the end the trade agreement is something that is very beneficial to me as a producer here in the united states but also to the people in china. the trade agreement has to be win win or it's not going to happen. last week washington hiked tariffs on $200000000000.00 worth of chinese goods by using responded with similar can to measure is from claims that america is actually benefiting from the trade war with china by cashing in on imports taxis however the head of the iowa soybean association says that chinese tires will have a severe impact on the u.s. soil beings are really been at the tip of the spear if you will in the retaliation from the chinese over the u.s. trade and chinese trade dispute but it certainly impacted corman of products from
1:18 am
the u.s. as well as livestock particularly pork poultry and of course a host of other non agricultural products so you know this you know the any disruption in trade between the u.s. and any of its major trading partners will certainly have an impact on farmers from a soybean perspective keep in mind that china currently buys about 60 percent of all the soybeans traded in the world 60 percent so when the u.s. has a disruption in that relationship that china it certainly has a major impact on soybeans about one out of every 3rd row worth or about a 3rd of the toll the u.s. oil being brought to piggly would end up in china course today that's not happening now still to come this hour the u.s. is giving the green favorites a plans to create a nominee would have a look at why washington is so upset just after the break.
1:19 am
what politicians do you sometimes think. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for some help wanted. to be close it's like the 3 of the more people. interested in the logs. 6.
1:20 am
of us has clashed with the european union over the blocks plans to create its own army president donald trump slammed the idea saying it actually undermines the work of nato the parliament who recently voted in favor of allocating 13000000000 euros to a joint military budget peter all of. it's being one of the foreign policy tropes of the trump presidency that european nato allies need to boost their defense spending so i want europe to pay germany pays one percent. they should be paying 4 percent. fish to pay one percent they should be paying even more than that european nations
1:21 am
have stepped up their research and development into weapon systems away from the u.s. defense industry including a franco german plan to develop a new european fighter jet but this doesn't sit well with washington in fact the trump government sent a letter to the e.u. foreign policy chief federica maka rini warning that the european defense cooperation all pests go under 15 a 1000000000 euro european defense fund could fall foul of existing transatlantic military agreements. the draft european development fund regulation and permanent structured cooperation general conditions represented dramatic reversal of the last 3 decades of increased integration of the transatlantic defense sector it would seem that the european union haven't really understood what president meant by spend more money on defense reading between the lines it probably would have been clearer if it said by made in the usa the letter
1:22 am
to mark a rainy also contained well less than subtle threat should the e.u. continue down this path it's clear that simulate reciprocally imposed u.s. restrictions would not be welcomed by our european partners now allies and we would not relish having to consider them in the future when you take a look at how much defense sales the european allies was worth to the us economy between the period of 2008 to 2018 it's clear to see why washington isn't keen on a move away from the status quo germany spent a $1000000000.00 and took almost 2 thirds of its foreign military imports from the united states norway not in a year member of course but a member of the nato alliance on greece they spent almost one and a half $1000000000.00 while italy took over half of its foreign military imports from the u.s. and spent close to $2000000000.00 the white house will you would expect also be watching closely how proposals for a european defense force backed by french presidents of money will not drawn in
1:23 am
chancellor merkel here in germany develop the e.u. reaction to the letter from the united states to try and keep things calm. the european union is and remains open to u.s. companies and equipment with trump set to be in europe next month we can expect more calls to boost defense spending as long of course if you buy from the united states peter all of the berlin the former vice president of the parliamentary assembly of the n.s.c. even even a says though that nato. would not be weakened by any. sport is 0 on going war effort on the side of you know the suits and their farm when we come. in your we have to be a loyalist to go moment so this question the yellow t. is that there was always a pleasure on the side of sumo that suits. you
1:24 am
or sources and nursing you when it comes to all your latina talk where nobody sees as hurt at least not. as a cunt who is. trying or even so much and for the region and therefore odors policy in the worst and therefore it is the behavior of somebody who sees your there's a plunder and not as a bar noyon core poison creating its own army is not the only concern for the european union the rise of nationalism is also among the most discussed the huge during debates ahead of the upcoming european elections. reports on. a polite debate which some described as being a little bit dull by the 6 candidates all vying to be the next president of the european commission they tackled some of the big issues dividing we were up at the moment including mike ration taxation youth unemployment and of course the rise of
1:25 am
if you were a skepticism or nationalism as they describe it saying it was possibly the greatest division in europe at the moment people who used to vote for my party and many parties here from nationalist parties sometimes even extremist parties that's our fault we see that nationalism and miss back on this continent and what we have to do over the 26 overall of may for this year's elections we have to fight against those who want to destroy our europe ordinary people in europe erica. trees that do not. reduce politics are somehow tired from european integration well that's because there are signs in many polls that euro skeptic parties are likely to make a big gains in this next election some polls suggesting that they could actually double the number of seats which would mean if that's the case they would hold around 15 percent of the seats in the european chamber
1:26 am
a lot and many people of very concerned about that particularly the centrists and the liberals and all of the candidates urged people to do whatever they could to get out and to vote next week and some even suggested that they could be a prospect in the future of changing the mechanism of voting within the european union today we have in our external affairs the are just a few men in must vote that's for europe cannot act europe is not cricket must but after all of that who was watching suggestions that many of the big broadcasters in the larger nations across europe actually relegated that debate to the less so watched smaller channels or to online channels meaning that perhaps only a fraction of the $427000000.00 people who are eligible to vote next week actually saw who could be their potential next president of the european commission.
