governing coalition goes into a tailspin as the freedom party says all of its ministers are quitting in the for lots of video sting against the party leader. testing the limits of iran's quadrupling production of low enriched uranium as tension to the u.s. ramps up and the nuclear deal unravels. and swedish prosecutors seek an arrest warrant for julian assange reopening a rape investigation setting the stage for an extradition tussle with the u.s. .
4:01 pm
it's 11 o'clock here in moscow and you're watching all to international live from last you too with me in a day or 2 to welcome to the program. governing coalition has been left in tatters at this monday after the right wing freedom party announced that all of its ministers are to step down the mass resignations are in response to the chancellor attempt to sack the interior minister over his response to a corruption sting as tarnished the party's image peeta all of us has the details. what happened is is this has been trying to clear the decks really here he's been trying to distance himself as much as he can from the beat the tape scandal and what he said is that he needs the interior minister as well as others to be part of a transparent investigation been. i am of the firm conviction that full transparency and a complete and impartial explanation is now need in my opinion it all leads to a conflict and situation which would have concluded if the interior minister had
4:02 pm
withdrawn from his functions he didn't take that step and in this respect i decided to in consultation with the federal president and i would recommend the dismissal of the interior minister but all of this is part of the fallout from the the bombshell really that was the be theft tape or the at the think gate scandal as it's being called in some circles in which well it cost former vice chancellor christine here his job he stood down on saturday after this video of an emerged ready with him in a look a bit thin villa talking to you a woman who purports to be representing a wealthy russian who we understand has a latvian passport who said that she wanted to make multi millions over hundreds of millions of euros worth of investment in austria and perhaps could even look to to purchase a big share in a newspaper in order to try and promote and his party.
4:03 pm
he saw. when he said. yes it was stupid yes it was responsible yes it was a mistake but at the same time it was a victim of a targeted political attack that had used illegal means but when we're looking at positions that some from the. party hold in the cabinet they had major positions talking about the foreign ministry the health ministry that offense ministry all of these posts now have nobody filling them as it were what we have heard from sebastian coe it says he was never going to work with the freedom party after the scandal broke he's called for fresh elections snap elections really and they're going to have to come quite quickly because if we look to the opposition in austria the social democrats of austria they're saying everybody should go including sebastien courts and that actually an interim government should take over until
4:04 pm
there can be fresh elections we are just days out though from big european parliamentary elections and parties who are campaigning at the moment are certainly using this scandal in austria to say well in particular in angela merkel's words as she was campaigning in zagreb in croatia she said look at this it shows you can't trust the populist you can't work with them and they'll only let you down we haven't to deal with populist movements that in many areas a contemptuous of this values who want to destroy the europe it has long been known to try to win populist destabilize our press freedom and democracy far right populists are the enemies of freedom strikers is only the 1st domino to fall getting ready for solving the le pen or ban and other extreme right wing puppets of moscow's leash but what this could do is actually throw a major sponsor in the works of a plan put forward by mathias the deputy prime minister of italy to try and build
4:05 pm
a bloc of right wing more right wing minded parties in the european parliament as it stands at the moment parties that the subscribe to that viewpoint is set to win 250 out of the 751 seats that are available however a big problem would be a big problem that exists right now for them is that nobody really wants to work with the austrian freedom party right now following this scandal. iran says has quadrupled its production of low enriched uranium pushing the limits of the floundering 2015 nuclear deal it's a fresh escalation with the united states which got out of the deal more than a year ago and saw iran to suspend its commitments earlier this month is our middle east correspondent for the slayer iran has quadrupled its production of low in which the rainy of the country's capacity to enrich uranium has been increased
4:06 pm
without adding any new change or centrifuge so the design information related to these has been submitted to the international atomic energy agency this comes against the backdrop of an increase in tensions between the united states and wants to fight will be the official. never threaten the united states again. iranians have stew troll for millenia while aggressors all gone economic terrorism and genocidal taunts won't and now this follows an increase in tensions between the sides that was sparked by the american administration's deployment of bombers and also an aircraft carrier to the persian gulf and this was because of perceived threats from to read and now the iranian president has responded by saying that he is open to holding crisis talks with international partners but he has said that iran will not respond positively to any kind of threats more we welcome to go we do
4:07 pm
not negotiate with a party that behaves like a bully and takes a knife out of his pocket and force against all talks we do not hold such negotiations with anybody their neighbors for stability everywhere we go in the middle east it's a real honor and major destabilizing and influence in the middle east spread destruction and the leaders of iran our record piers the world's largest financier of international terrorism behind every problem is arrayed and what we are trying to do is to get iran to behave like a normal patient now the united states has been imposing a maximum pressure campaign against iran ever since the nuclear deal collapsed and at the same time has been imposing crippling sanctions earlier this month however in iran did warn that it would begin enriching uranium to higher levels and this it said was the remaining signatories to the deal did something to it the american 3 also protect them from american penalties now europe is it pains to do this but
4:08 pm
it's far from clear whether or not the europeans can actually succeed in this now washington claims that iran is really aiming at developing nuclear weapons to iran has consistently denied this and it's worth pointing out at the same time that the nuclear watchdog the international atomic energy agency has never found iran. of any stipulations of the deal what we are seeing now however is an increase in some 3.76 percent enriched uranium now a spokesperson for iran's nuclear agency has said that this does not mean that iran will increase the number of centrifuges in use which is one of the terms of the agreement but however in weeks it could reach the 300 kilogram limit and that is a term that was set out in their 2015 deal they have informed the nuclear watchdog of the international atomic energy agency and as of yet there's been no response from the us so the real concern is that iran will go beyond the limitations
4:09 pm
therefore sit by the nuclear deal and although the public statements from both to random washington are that neither side wants to see them the 2 countries go to war the concern is that any kind of miscalculation at this particularly tenacious time could result in the whole situation spiraling out of control. with these prosecutors have requested and the arrest warrant for wiki leaks founder julian assange after they reopened a rape case against him last week the ecuadorian embassy in london meanwhile started handing over the whistleblowers possessions to u.s. authorities who were also seeking songes extradition breaking down the latest developments his polyploid. today is the start of these sort of formal proceedings whereby ecuador hands over someone just personal possessions in order for u.s. prosecutors to get their hands on them and it's expected that there's 2 police
4:10 pm
officers and a prosecutor from that i can then be going through his things presuming is accumulated quite a few possessions and 70 is holed up inside and according to wiki leaks neither julian assange nor his legal team nor u.n. representatives have been allowed to be for this process in the wiki leaks that it's a question of frost's and has said that what's happening today is illegal on monday before. the embassy in london for the masters in washington the transport minister ration. to behave like it's the wild west so u.s. authorities have until mid june to potentially expand the charges against a songe at the moment his extradition request from the u.s. says that he's wanted for conspiracy to hack and government computer but there's concern from wiki leaks that once the u.s. prosecutors get their hands on someone just computer hard drives that charge could
4:11 pm
be handed out and made much more serious now julian assange just supporters have been his you can see they're still here outside the embassy they've been heckling people that go in and out there's been a few police officers they are very unhappy with what's happening and we spoke to a few of them it's a disgrace that the british government should be attempting to persecute you if you really think he's done nothing but tell the truth he had to be a witness of the. travesty of justice. things belong to julian assange and he doesn't give me any admission. that. if the u.k. has reached. the intent to commit a crime. so you can take a. police officer is coming and going all day as we're watching both the entrance is the main entrance to the embassy but there's also a back exit which there's no traffic now so i can show you but there's
4:12 pm
a police van there and a police officer walking past a side exit i spoke to the full month old soul the ecuadorian consul here in london who said he was actually dismissed by the new leadership when lenin miranda came to power because of his support for julian a son. illegally these abuses what is happening is basically stealing things from a person who cannot defend. talk to today. today . today. by the front door. as for the money shot that picture potentially about salinger's computer being taken out and handed over to u.s.
4:13 pm
processed prosecutors are just taken out well according to the former console that i spoke to that he says that after video agency court my son is being dragged out of here against his will last month the authorities the ecuadorian officials inside are going to make it their priority to try in a raid that cameras this time around a long time supporter of julian assange she spoke to says she may come as a blow to the whistleblowers legal case. utterly disgraceful way for an independent sovereign nation to behave but that's what they're doing i don't know exactly what they want to find but are going to get an awful lot they're going to get judy and legal notes from the legal meetings what should have been private legal meetings that he's had in the embassy obviously i think that's of great concern to those who are preparing to fight is actually in case here i think that the 7 years that julian spent in the embassy war very hard on him he's an incredibly resilient
4:14 pm
person but i did see the cost exerted on him i don't think that you did should have served any time at all for his enormous achievements in reinventing journalism. inspiring not just chelsea manning but all of the whistleblowers we're so sure since you've been in a measurable benefit to the world you should be extremely grateful to julian what has happened to him is a travesty as we mentioned prosecutors in sweden of requested an arrest warrant for leaks founder if granted it would be the 1st step to have extradited from the u.k. where he's currently serving a 15 week prison sentence for skipping bell back and 2012 last week stockholm decided to reopen a rape case against him after it had been previously dropped 27 to. the syrian government is denying a rebel reports that chemical weapons were used in the recent attack in the western
4:15 pm
coastal tackier province the reports claim as the syrian army advances retaking the main highways and trade routes around the rebel held. the government under the reports as publication insisting that syria has never used chemical weapons and will not must now adding that it will not stop in its battle against terrorism. few days ago a leaked document raised questions about the global chemical weapons watchdogs report on last year's chemical attack in. the city of duma just 10 kilometers from the capital back then blaming assad's forces the u.s. britain and france carried out on strikes against syrian government facilities. yet to respond to the comment. as the background. we saw petrified children. we listened to the righteous indignation very terrible regime we read a scrupulous investigation into what happened by the un chemical weapons watchdog
4:16 pm
the o.p.c. w. report was meant to pose an indisputable and to speculations over what happened in duma in syria in spring 2018 except that it really. the 60 newly revealed pages challenge of the bag bone of the official conclusions. after passing through the ceiling in impacting the floor of the lower speed the cylinder continued in altered trajectory until reaching the position in which it was found. observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both cylinders were money placed at those $2.00 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft the engineering teams account is well
4:17 pm
structured it includes pictures from the site of the incident blueprints and images of the test cases studied to deliver their verdict it's unlikely the project tile fell from above which would in that case mean one thing the assad controlled air force had nothing to do with it and while the sky was dominated by the government of the ground at the time was in control of the insurgents so the question is now who else. could have placed the cylinder on that bed now the revelation had the o.p.c. w. concerned except not the substance of it but the fact that someone in their ranks when grow and exposed something they tried to bury as deep and far away from the public eye as possible the bottom line in this is that the documents have been passed to us as i've said before we've had we have confirmation from multiple
4:18 pm
sources which clearly shows that there aren't being an investigation carried out from within you don't owe you an investigation which is not found oh absolutely into the fire do not report and use your proper investigation into your p.c. w. and how it has been operating because it is the case that it's organization has been subjected to political pressure and that have led to distortion their investigations and that is an incredibly serious matter. but this engine airing analysis is not the 1st blow to the official version of what happened in duma now this video purported to show the harrowing aftermath of the chemical attack resonated across the airwaves and was hyped by many channels horrific images of syrian children fighting for brownfield and suffocating in their homes the editor emergency shelter many with foam in their mouths disturbing
4:19 pm
reports of a chemical weapons attack chemical attack carried out by the asad regime except later people in the video said they had no recollection of a chemical attack some people barged into the hospital hosed people with water instigated panic and vanished even a producer with the b.b.c. a broadcaster that gave major airtime to the clip said he believed the hospital video was staged. almost 6 months of investigations i can prove without a doubt that the duma hospital scene was staged no fatalities occurred in the hospital. in 20 teen be allowed us to voices on the world stage were quick to deliver their verdict and punishment these are not the actions of a man. they are crying of a monster instead the nations of britain france and the united states of america
4:20 pm
have martial their righteous power against barbarism and brutality. but with this new information it's not that obvious anymore and although it speak the interest of the politically engaged classes in light of the new evidence from our no p c w engineers report i hope the guardian newspaper will have the good grace to print a man reserved apology for their scurrilous ad hominem attack on me after i denounce the white house potently concocted story for what it was we may have just discovered to major piece of the puzzle explaining how seemingly independent international organizations how deceive us into consent into wars and regime change interventionism around the world there's a deafening silence from the great and good the entire body of evidence for that
4:21 pm
particular attack is questionable the o.p.c. w. would. or is designed to lay blame on this particular party or that particular party obviously they are going to be abused by element on the ground because they know that with russian and syrian air. planes in the air and there they have nowhere to go or they would desperately need some help by american planes where british planes so they could fabricate everything or anything and the interesting part is that the united states and and its allies weren't even wait for the investigation to take place whenever there is a hint of something they would just immediately go and bomb movie they change the narrative we don't you know it really depends if you ask me the question on what the c.w. would make of the report but. is that really a high possibility i've read that. hundreds of undocumented migrants occupied
4:22 pm
france is busy to bolt on sunday demanding to meet the prime minister of asylum policy it was organized by a migrant support group calling itself the black vests who were protesting against deportations. 7 7 moved up there 7. this happened around lunch time on sunday off they're not showing to go live which as you may know eased the biggest influence in terms of international capacity and the 2nd largest in europe with this group of my colleagues around some $500.00 were able to close call to the airport down as the thing to do to make their claims to denounce the deportation of people in the regular situations here in front and also to the actions of fronts in aiding the deportation of undocumented migrants most of those individuals were said to be undocumented migrants and
4:23 pm
they've now described themselves as being the black vests they were shouting at parts of times at the airports some people hurt them saying certain clips that france doesn't belong to the french that everyone has a right to be here let's take a little look now at what happened at the apple s u u u u u u u u u u u well that situation became heated enough and they're all reports that police used tear gas to trying to those undocumented migrants to try and get them out of the willing to try and bring things back to normality and asylum policy has long being something that many people are unhappy about hearing from 3. big government crackdown has been taking place. so i limit immigration bills last year which have been very well and
4:24 pm
we heard the engine. number of deportations of illegal aliens france has actually increased by 20 percent so that has really riled people up and that's one of the reasons why the so-called black press right shoulder yesterday. sorry cargo ship believed to be carrying 2 consignments of military equipment which rights groups fear could be used in yemen has docked at the italian port of genoa has been met by protests. have reportedly refused to load and he will materialize on to the vessel. general issues of the general war is taking to the streets because of the city's pacifist tradition and should the docks in our port toward equipment that could be used during a war like the one being fought in yemen where many have died among the civilian population can be a part of this. this morning unfortunately we had confirmation that even here in
4:25 pm
genoa they plan to load military equipment we call for a strike because we do not want to be accomplices of the war in yemen so the ship has been making the rounds of ports around europe it was reportedly loaded with arms and belgium and sail to france where it was prevented from collecting any more cargo following 2 legal challenges after the vessel had 2 sons one day in spain picking up military hardware that officials have said complied with all the norms the saudi flying to bahrain is a $15000.00 ton ship its european trip has caused alarm among activists and rights . there's a real possibility that weapons could be used against yemeni civilians riyadh for its part denies ever intentionally targeting noncombatants son claims weapons only used for defense of the posts. also news now i'll be back with more global updates around 13 minutes so don't go away.
