testing the limits iran's quadrupling production of low enriched uranium is tension with the u.s. ramps up on the nuclear deal and rattles. island demonstrations erupt once again in haiti where the government accused of links to a massacre in the country's capital last november. and the united states extends its offer of money to countries willing to switch from russian to american made.
5:01 am
this is our to international one from moscow is kevin owen here with a 30 minute world news roundup so them 1st off iran says it's quadrupled its production of low enriched uranium pushing the limits of that floundering 2050 nuclear deal it's a fresh escalation with the united states which pulled out of the deal more than a year ago driving around to suspend some of its commitments earlier this month. the country's capacity to enrich uranium has been increased 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 increased tensions between the united states and iran and also the continuing unraveling of the nuclear deal that was signed back in 2015 if iran wants to fight that will be the official end of the iran never threaten the united states again. iranians have stood tall for millenia while aggressors all gone economic terrorism
5:02 am
in genocidal taunts won't and that's why those days of increased tensions that was sparked by the american administration sending bombers and an aircraft carrier to the persian gulf now they did this because of what they perceive for threats from the brain inside it comes as the israeli and president says he is open to holding crisis talks with international partners but that iran will not respond to any kind of threats any kind of hostility and any kind of attempts at coercion we welcome to go situations because we do 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 the american position has been clear for quite some time the leaders of iran are rocketeers the world's largest financier of international terrorism behind every problem is already what we are trying to do is to get the wrong to behave like a normal patient the united states has been applying a maximum pressure campaign against iran ever since the nuclear deal began to
5:03 am
collapse last year and at the same time it's been imposing crippling sanctions earlier this month he ran did warn that it would begin enriching uranium to high levels if the remaining signatories did not manage to offset it or in some kind of way protected against the american measures now the europeans have been trying to do this but it's far from clear whether one. they'll succeed washington claims that he ran is looking to develop nuclear weapons and this is a claim that iran has consistently denied at the same time the nuclear watchdog the international atomic energy agency has never found iran in contravention of any kind of stipulations in the deal what we've seen happen is an increase from the iranian side in production by some 3.67 percent of enrich uranium a spokesperson for the iranian nuclear agency has said that this does not mean that iran will increase the number of centrifuges in use which is one of the stipulations in the nuclear deal but however we could see that within weeks iran
5:04 am
will reach that 300 kilogram limit and this is a stipulation in the deal so ultimately what could happen is that iran could soon go beyond the stockpile limitations which are specified in the nuclear deal now publicly both iran and the united states say that they don't want to go with go to war with the other side but the the big concern is that any kind of miscalculation at this particularly precarious time could see the whole situation going out of control meantime u.s. president ready to negotiate with. very ready also once again born to run against make you what he called provocative actions or threats. we have no indication that. anything has happened or will happen but if it does it will be met obviously with great force well after george we'll see what happens if they call we would certainly to go but that's going to be up to them why don't we want them to
5:05 am
call if they're ready we are in a pre-crisis situation right now and a lot depends on the political will and the determination of the europeans to join russia and china are the other signatories to the party in order to preempt this where i'm getting into a full blown crisis is a very critical situation and we are at a crossroads basically of peace and war you've got iraq president in the white house and surrounded by these all bear hugs that thirst for another war with iran and. saudi arabia and israel iran's right right walls that may instigate a false flag planted accident and so forth in order to lure mr trump to war with iran despite is the stated intention of limiting him self to economic warfare which is really as bad as war itself. focus on haiti no where the government
5:06 am
suspected of links to a massacre in the country's capital last november dozens of people including women and children were brutally killed and tortured eighty's biggest ally the us has so far been silent on the accusations violent anti-government protests have been raging in the capital port au prince for weeks now. the situation in haiti is escalating a population that is largely unemployed without electricity and without money once the president out. today the country has reached an end the population can no longer accept the situation. where no one is out at night now there is reduced night life know all the streets of darn you just don't know what are you
5:07 am
going to run into you just can't go anywhere now in addition to their other grievances the protesters have a link to the government one of the worst massacres in the recent history of the country. during. they were shooting and i was running to save my life it was a terrible massacre. they were drastic in police uniforms with masks on their faces they snatched people and killed them the united nations has launched an investigation now in march of 104 members of the u.s.
5:08 am
congress signed a letter to the u.s. secretary of state calling for an independent investigation as of yet there has been no answer during an impromptu visit to haiti last month congresswoman maxine waters expressed very serious concerns about u.s. aid going to the country when we talk about how we care about haiti and why we are able to contribute the way that we do here and we do not want to see that abused or misused to disregard it i think that may give us a little leverage but the trump administration seems confident in the aligned regime. we have always underscored in their statements as well as our diplomatic conversations our belief in the g.t.c. of heat is institutions and its elected officials so far there has been no comment from the u.s. state department on the massacre while washington routinely condemns governments around the world for allegedly violating human rights when it comes to haiti the white house is unusually silent the u.s.
5:09 am
has relied on a policy of gang violence and guatemala and el salvador and honduras in haiti and numerous other countries so this keeps the people in fear it keeps them in desperation and they can rule from their washington d.c. by having these gangs in the paino public is do the work that the us demands the example of ministry will do nothing of the alert the public regime is. and will beginning. being demonstrated in haiti that does not affect the u.s. footprint in haiti so president of jordan about it. u.s. state department is planning to offer more money to countries that are willing to switch from russian to american made it's an expansion of the existing program
5:10 am
that's already been helping some states to buy american equipment in a patrol could take some story. to defocus in charge of sales for the u.s. military industrial complex take an internship somewhere that sells these free samples work just as fine in the international big guns business but look what america does as it turns out if it gets assurances from european countries that they'll ditch and stop buying weapons made in. or china free samples won't take long to arrive there's an entire government program under which these countries will get or already have just under $200000000.00 worth of hardware the idea being we can put in some u.s. grant military assistance they would then put in some amount of partner military
5:11 am
funding of course the free batch should be followed up by proper contracts plus there's going to be maintenance upgrades and so on nice one l. let's face it try before you buy is worked for everything from clothes to kiss medics and the program is being expanded to other continents. appreciating customer loyalty is keep remember when the killing of a saudi journalist in turkey could have led to international boycotts against the biggest buyer of uncle sam's toys back then the american president was quick to set things straight is the best equipment in the world but if they busy don't buy it from us they're going to buy it from russia or they're going to buy it from china or they're going to buy it from other countries so the saudi contracts should stay the way they are safe and sound. nato
5:12 am
member turkey one's got too carried away trading with russia or so says the american government and fought it was a good idea to buy russian missile defense systems if you will regret that came the message from d.c. we've. clearly warns turkey. that its potential acquisition. of the 100 will result in a reassessment of turkey's participation in the f. $35.00 program. and risk other. potential future arms transfers to turkey as well as lead to potential sanctions that someone say fair competition you know if you want to be rich thinking about fair is really something you can ditch. there's a united nations treaty that aims to make sure the global bad guys don't get their
5:13 am
hands on conventional weapons and hardware even if they can't afford it it's called a.t.t. barack obama signed it a few years ago donald trump though did it his way and said this in april my administration will never ratified the. treaty and i am officially announcing today that the united states will be revoking. the effect. of america's signature from this badly misguided treatment when taking our signature back a champion gun seller just once to make sure nothing can stop them from adding new names on the buyer's list even if there are perhaps a few issues with the reputation of. its comes like to britain's changed its rules on how to times and shares intelligence with allies according to the ministry of defense is laid as guidelines information can be exchanged even if there is
5:14 am
a risk the detainees could be mistreated to watch it where there remains a serious risk of torture a minister should be consulted but the presumption would be that we will not proceed unless ministers agree that the potential benefits justify accepting the risk and the legal consequences that may follow. these documents were obtained by an advocacy group through the freedom of information act show that besides ministers having more powers the new policy also allows them to pre-approve a list of high threat individuals about whom information could be shared now all this stands as a contradiction to the government's previously stated policies on torture that clearly outlined the u.k. personal must needed nor encourage instances of torture abuse or mistreatment the so-called consolidated guidance serves as a rule of conduct for the ministry of defense as well as the u.k.'s intelligence agencies so now m.p. has called on the recently appointed secretary of defense to explain the late as to
5:15 am
changes now in torture guidelines these laws and norms are there not just to protect the enemy they also protect our own policy and activities in this area in accordance with both domestic and international law we cannot overrule the law nor can ministers be advised to. the law or disregard the law. for you can bust their own human rights craig morrey told us the ministry's actions made the country complicit in torture. no intention of cutting off those intelligence sharing agreement they will just come out again with some more mealy mouthed language about not condoning or not encouraging it plainly illegal in terms of international law the united nations convention against torture program for talks of complicity and torture and by continually and pretty
5:16 am
well on a daily basis taining intelligence from the torture chambers of countries like saudi arabia or bahrain united kingdom is plainly complicit the united kingdom no longer kids it was acting illegally in international law the united kingdom has become a state. we asked people in london if they thought it was justified to use talk shit to taint intelligence information. i don't have a king during it but just having a boy. if you can is relatively straight and honest about the radios would like. but it's definitely shouldn't happen i don't think the ends justify the means the area to torture someone like dessert of order if you're under that kind of duress he'll say anything just for the pain to stop. and i'm not really i don't think it's the way to get. this is not international break it off and if he's cheating to a somewhat come with me kevin i don't include in the question can children be raised on
5:17 am
a vegan diet or doctors in belgium don't think so at all we'll bring you more on that when we come back. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next about different clubs on one hand it is logical to go from fields where
5:18 am
everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to suppress it. if. i'm going to talk about football narvi or else you can think i was going to do. by the way what is that that's like here. well again a group of leading doctors in belgium are warning parents against raising the children all vegan diets even suggesting they should face prosecution for depriving them of essential nutrients the assessment comes from the country's role academy in medicine which is the choice an ethical. it is not medically recommended and even forbidden to subject a child especially during periods of rapid growth to
5:19 am
a potentially destabilizing diet requiring frequent supplementation and control this concept of nutrition is similar to a form of treatment that is not ethical to impose on children well a vegan diet excludes all forms of animal based products including exe and dairy according to the study around 3 percent of belgian children do stick to that kind of lifestyle vigor says is a good thing they say this diet brings a number of benefits including increased energy levels as well as lowering blood sugar and cholesterol whether or not everyone agrees including some doctors belgium's royal academy of medicine say most parents are not able to provide ongoing medical supervision for their children which they say is restrictive this diet and so they need this care and increased number of health complications among children prompted this report in fact if we go back to 2017 there is a case then about a belgian couple who received a suspended 6 month sentence after their 7 month old baby died of malnutrition but doctors blame the parents choice to only feed a vegetable based milk and this whole issue still rumbles on today think about
5:20 am
vegan diets for children it's really so firing up social media comment to kiss my vague and. my kids being vegan since conception on is perfectly healthy child abuse being innocent should be a choice left to mature humans meanwhile here in backwards belgium what's next you bunch of not to doctors sterilize us young children need milk butter and some meat along with vegetables as an adult you are free to make a choice but don't feed the going to young children it's criminal should be so is it right or is it wrong to put a child on a vegan diet we put that question to our guests. i don't think it's necessary to penalize it's necessary to give a good advise and to take into account the preferences of the parents the more restrictions you used the more. risk there is of deficiency if you're over the age
5:21 am
of 16 or 18 depending on the country you're living in you can make whatever decision you want i personally to a low carb high fat diet but i know i shouldn't let my children do that because they need the carbohydrates to grow no parent has a right to abuse their child or no parent has a right to put their child in danger and this is clearly put in the main danger there are certain sentiments now you cannot get on a vegan diet parents don't make their children the beacon isn't is a protected ethical orientation at the level of human rights and all parents who live their lives according to deep convictions have the right to raise their children according to those moral convictions and if children are suffering neglect then this ought to be dealt with very precisely as child neglect regardless of the ethical orientation of the parent vitamin b 12 without dirt need supply
5:22 am
mentation because it's not present in an active form in any plant based nutritional source be careful about fighting the twelth also in the mother if she has a vacant for a long time it's possible that she doesn't present symptoms of vitamin b 12 deficiency or while breast milk may not contain sufficient vitamin b 12 for the little child there are lots of belief communities that feed their children even actually terry and at the jane's. the buddhists they they are vegetarian and feed at. so really don't understand why the men the medical profession is targeting the legal community on a street legal and nothing a strict vegan diet you do not get the visions they take these are so ruins you cannot get certain vitamins in particular b 12 so denying your children do that
5:23 am
kind of meat and dairy i think it is a full of child abuse i don't really want governments to get involved in family life but if we can't see courage them as the belgian search then the state does have a responsibility when it comes to child abuse and that's what i think it is. venezuelan president nicolas were during his proposed early elections for the country's national assembly the opposition won control of the body in a 2050 vote and the next elections are currently show jeweled fellate 2020. 1 of the group cannot. or will be. one of the 1st you know one of the you know the family of. the. military one we will fight until we win or die regardless of how much of

5:25 am
of all venezuela has every right to have an election for the national assembly in 2020 or to move it up to this year constitutionally they have that right why no was never elected president never ran for president he was on a rotating basis the temporary president of the national assembly is election isn't even in the cards and he can only he feels come to power with the u.s. tanks in some military effort that is also not likely to 16 diverse systems we're seeing in venezuela today makes it pretty clear that people have made a choice and i'm determined to back up their own government. between police and activists in the teller's if you belong here monday the anger erupted
