6:01 am
good afternoon this is our international live from moscow with me kevin 0 in on this 30 minute world news update for you than iran says it's quadrupled its production of low enriched uranium pushing the limits of that floundering twist 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 to . 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. never threaten the united states again. iranians have stood tall for millenia while aggressors all gone economic terrorism
6:02 am
and 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 with rates from the ukrainian side it comes as he is very new 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've been trying to do is to get the iran to behave like a normal nation the united states has been applying
6:03 am
a maximum pressure campaign against iran ever since the nuclear deal began to 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 on 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
6:04 am
stipulations in the nuclear deal but however we could see that within weeks iran 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 carious time could see the whole situation going out of control the worry it will mean some u.s. president donald trump says he is ready to negotiate with iran but only when quote they already trump also once again bold to run against make he would be called provocative actions or threats. we have no indication that. anything's happened or will happen but if it does it will be met obviously with great force well after
6:05 am
choice we'll see what happens if they call it certainly they go shit but that's going to be up to them why don't we want them to 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 war i'm getting into a full blown crisis this is a very critical situation and we're at a crossroads basically of peace and war you've got iraq president in the white house and surrounded by ideas 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 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
6:06 am
is really as bad as war itself. in haiti the government 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 it is biggest ally the us though has so far been silent on the accusations violent anti-government protests have been raging in the capital port au prince for weeks. 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
6:07 am
reduced night life know all the streets and darn you just don't know what are you 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. they were shooting and i was running to save my life it was a terrible massacre that. they went to asked in police uniforms with masks on their faces they snatched people and killed them the united nations has launched an
6:08 am
investigation now in march of 104 members of the u.s. 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 had . 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 there are 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
6:09 am
white house is unusually silent the u.s. has relied on our policy of gang violence in guatemala and el salvador and honduras in haiti and numerous other countries so this keeps the people in it keeps them in desperation and they can rule from their washington d.c. by having these gangs in the pain of. do the work that the u.s. demands the example of ministry and will do nothing of haiti alerts the public regime is. and will. being demonstrated in haiti there does not affect the u.s. footprint in haiti so president of. the u.s. state department's planning to offer more money to countries that are willing to switch from russian to american made arms says an expansion of the existing program
6:10 am
that which has already been helping some states to buy american equipment it takes up the story. did the folks 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 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 russia 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.
6:11 am
grant military assistance they would then put in some amount of partner military 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 $1.00 0 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 key 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 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
6:12 am
way they are safe and sound. nato member turkey one's got too carried away trading with russia or so says the american government and thought it was a good idea to buy russian missile defense systems you will regret that came the message from d.c. . we've clearly warned turkey that its potential acquisition of the 100 will result in a reassessment of turkey's participation in the f. 35 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
6:13 am
a united nations treaty that aims to make sure the global bad guys don't get their 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. it's come to like to britain's changed its rules on how to times and shares intelligence with allies according to the minister of
6:14 am
defense is late as guidelines information can be exchanged even if there's a risk detainees could be mistreated told to. well 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 are obtained by an advocacy group through the freedom of information act to the 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 and this stands in contradiction and who are the government's previously stated policies on torture that clearly outlined the u.k. personnel must leave the tape partner encourage instances of torture abuse or mistreatment the so-called consolidated guidance serves as a rule of and of conduct for the minister of defense as well as the u.k.'s intelligence agencies or at least should do so now m.p.'s called on the recently appointed secretary of defense to explain the latest changes and to these torture
6:15 am
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 former you can buster in human rights advocate craig morrey says the ministry's actions make the country therefore complicit in torture. no intention of cutting off those intelligence sharing agreements 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 paragraph or talks of complicity and torture and by continually and pretty
6:16 am
well on a daily basis of taining intelligence from the torture chambers of countries like saudi arabia or bahrain the 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. you ought to go out international for a good afternoon for me kevin owen itself 160 in the afternoon moscow time so a lot to come over sticker over lease the next 10 minutes with more the news we ask can children be raised on of the good diet it's always controversial this one doctors in belgium say no we'll bring you more opinion on that when the bag. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be
6:17 am
an arms race in this spearing dramatic development only closely i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. you know world of big partisan lot and conspiracies 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 smarter 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 we're watching closely watching the hawks.
6:18 am
again a group of leading doctors in belgium are warning parents against raising their children on vague and diets even suggesting they should face prosecution for depriving them of essential nutrients the assessment comes from the country's royal academy of medicine which is dubbed the choice an ethical. it is not medically recommended and even forbidden to subject a child especially during periods of rapid growth to 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 i begin to exclude all forms of animal based products including eggs and dairy and according to the study around 3 percent of belgian children in fact do stick to this lifestyle vegas's says this diet is going number of benefits including increased energy levels as well as lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels but the docs don't
6:19 am
all agree certainly belgium's royal academy of medicine say most parents are not able to provide ongoing medical supervision for the children which they say this restrictive diet regime requires while an increased number of health complications amongst children have been prompting their report back in 2017 a crucial case a belgian couple received a suspended 6 month sentence after this 7 month old baby died of malnutrition in a diet like this doctors blamed the parents' choice to feed it only vegetable based milk the whole issue still rumbles on to this day a vegan diet for children is still firing up social media kiss my vague and belgium my kid's been vegan since conception on his perfectly healthy child abuse veganism 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
6:20 am
a choice but don't feed feed into young children it's criminal should be so is it right or is it wrong to put children 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 advice 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 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
6:21 am
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 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 figure 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
6:22 am
feed their children even actually terry and that the chains. the blood tests. they they are vegetarian and we get so many don't understand why the men the medical profession is targeting the legal community on a strict legal and not rich town a strict vegan diet you do not get the visions they take these are sort of ruins you cannot get served it means in particular be 12 so denying your children that kind of meat and dairy i think it is a full of child abuse i don't really want government to get involved in family life but if we can cheat courage them as the belgians then the state just have a responsibility when it comes to child abuse and that's what i think it is. this is new into her own 5000 islamic state fighters positioned along afghanistan's
6:23 am
remote border region with central asian republics according to their of the russian federal security services as the revocations of the prisoner correspondent and off we go hey there so the f.s.b. shedding more light on the details of these fighters and where they are and what they may be planning to do or indeed kevin just a little bit context for us the f.s.b. is arguably the most outspoken security service of russia and it is this behemoths of collecting counterterrorism data and well according to their head the xander board think of now a branch of islamic state a so-called belly out hot a sign an extremist group that pledged allegiance to the torrijos islamic terrorist organization apparently they have sent thousands really thousands of their members to afghanistan and are already restless and restless country have a listen. we're especially concerned over terrorist groups transfer to northern provinces that border with c.i.s.

or even that the iranian or an iranian. excuses are endless when they're on the march to war we seem to have forgotten about many of the wars we still have going on most specifically the war in afghanistan you remember the war in afghanistan the start of back in 2001 and brings up an estimated cost of around $45000000000.00 a year on u.s. taxpayers i can understand it's easy to forget these things you know it's been a while since i've got a stand made the headlines but hold on to your buds because there was a new wrinkle in the war and it involves the united states giving money to the taliban. yes that taliban according to roll call the trump administration asked congress to leave this year for funds to reimburse afghanistan's taliban for expenses the insurgent group incurs attending peace talks. you cannot make this up folks roll call goes on report that the expenses include things like transportation lodging along with food and other supplies when asked about the funding request pentagon spokeswoman commander rebecca told reuters that the pentagon was seeking
