times said that the he wants the government in tehran to not be there in power americans are trying to create a situation were it are is are forced to actually come we're going to push it in there but only storms in commission and i think that is unlike can grow up and get rid of the glue simply by the japanese. or a brush stroke that did not deliver the kind of deserves that the americans were expecting because iran has not responded positively to the japanese prime minister there are other interested parties who could very easily been walled in this particular act which took place in the last 24 hours could be saudi arabia could be washington itself with this fleet in the gulf region the iran has has its disposal well sure many boxes. all of that you have they have

mcnabb says there is an imbalance in the extradition treaty between washington and london. i think that any extradition counsel whether. for the for the crown or for the defense is going to understand as in many other extradition proceedings particularly one that's oprah a high profile like mistress on top of that politics this point to make the point i think it's shiny i don't think that it should come into play in any explanation proceeding i think that an extradition hearing should be based solely in the in the resulting decision either for or against extradition should be based solely on the law but i also believe that that's a naive approach and i do think that politics will factory post $911.00. the u.s. and u.k. . entered into an expert dish and treaty that provides for a lower. standard of proof that the u.s.
8:11 pm
passed of my to have someone extradited so it's much easier for the u.s. to have one extradited from the u.k. to the u.s. than the other way around and i'm not familiar with any other extradition treaty that the u.s. house where that floor standard where that even standard is between the 2 bilateral states that's present to the u.s. treaty. human rights watch there's a british government report whitewash in saudi arabia's role in yemen's humanitarian crisis the bush's foreign office for. porter states that the conflict in yemen has had a devastating impact on people's lives but it only mentions saudi arabia one of the sides of the war in connection with the alleged use of secret prisons. and mr international alleged the use of secret prisons in areas under the saudi led
8:12 pm
coalition's control there was no reliable process for inquiry into detainees held at these facilities human rights watch adds that riyadh's actions in yemen could amount to war crimes and accuses the u.k. of turning a blind eye. the reports most striking witness is on the yemen while acknowledging the many civilians killed in the conflict it ignores the saudi led coalition's responsibility indiscriminate saudi led coalition air strikes in yemen have huge hospitals funerals weddings markets civilian homes and even a school bus killing and wounding thousands many of these attacks may be work crimes. well suited to 15 person who sold 4700000000 pounds worth of weapons to riyadh making it one of the biggest exporters of arms to the kingdom the issue of weapons exports to the saudis has sparked a heated exchanges in the u.k. parliament we've requested comments from the british foreign office although so far we've had no response. without

8:14 pm
obfuscate or hide from the british the fact that they are supporting the illegal action saudi arabia and its allies in its war on the people of yemen the united kingdom just like the united states has strategic interest in the region they want to protect. dictatorial monarchical governments and order to secure all natural gas resources and the people of yemen fighting for their liberation. to their foreign policy go. a newly formed euro skeptic bloc opposes the extension of anti russia sanctions we've got that story and more after a short break.
8:15 pm
thanks. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so what you want to be president should. want to be rich. but you'd like to be close to what the flag korean people. interested in the lives. they should.
8:16 pm

8:17 pm
from 9 european countries common direction common goal to take power from brussels and give it to the country members capitals for that very reason they are often referred to in the media as you are skeptics shortly after the new born party presentation its core chairman who is also known here in germany as the federal spokesperson for the alternative for germany a right wing party presented one of the features of the party's poorest that is definitely too different from the european union sanctions against russia make no sense let's take a listen we oppose the extension of sanctions they did not fix the actions of russia we can extend them for another 10 years it will not change anything it came less than a week after the russian president vladimir putin said that russia is dreaded to move towards the european union but the you should take the 1st step if the use policy towards russia changes will not only welcome it will take reciprocal steps
8:18 pm
this also applies to the countries sanctions we were 1st to apply after the certain restrictions on us then you alliance will take 73 seats of this 751 seat european parliament 10 percent compared to 5 percent in the last previous significant change 8 makes it to feast largest alliance in the palm and which makes the chances are very high that the party will be successful in pushing forward its policy and we indeed are going to see the changes in the pen talked about there are many lawyers of. all the major issues. in the. we have about 25 to 30 percent of your skeptic parties and only the core is 10 percent or fraction and we had a lot of allies with whom we cooperate so yes we are stronger to see people see what the you bring all over all over europe. bring them to become more you are
8:19 pm
aware elite of brussels that has lost context to the growing the reality of the member states. people want to get control back they want to serve govern their countries and those same actions are not very popular among the people in europe they want to extend that they want partnership with russia instead of a new cool war and as long as the issue on the table in brussels and all of the federal states germany about i don't their nation states and europe u.s. terror politicians come on the pressure. u.s. national security adviser john bolton says reports of disagreements between donald trump and his top aides are part of a disinflation campaign by the likes of russia china and iran he also branded american journalists who write such reports says as to not professors of these regimes. north korea iran. venezuela russia and china pride to so just information about the
8:20 pm
administration and to say that the president his advisors are divided and things like that the stenographers of these regimes in the american press immediately pick it up. come on mr bolton in case you've been living under a rock the past few years u.s. president donald trump doesn't get along too well with the rest of capitol hill close to 30 of his team members have either resigned or were fired since he got into office his term has been haunted by a cascade of information leaks by insiders saboteurs and trump hasn't always been on the same page with the rest of the administration. you think north korea remains a nuclear threat yes but the president said he doesn't it's not what he said i mean i know i know personally we did it and there is no longer a nuclear threat from north korea. i had a very good talk with president putin is. that looking at all to get involved in
8:21 pm
venezuela where he was apparently ready to leave after the airport but the russians talked him out of that is that right that's right now it could be because the trump isn't a tory asli divisive figure by nature could be because he's flip flops so much that he's policy u. turns were created into actual flipflops well you know he's sometimes difficult to keep up with and you know after all he doesn't have to be a bad thing a clash of ideas challenging each other on policies is synonymous with democracy isn't it i really didn't use 3 times due to how unbelievable it is that the russians in other bad guys spread this information about to divided opinions of u.s. president and his closest aides seriously when the president and his inner circle had different opinions it is a sign of the democratic process in the country doesn't washington defend this value with such zeal so yeah it could be
8:22 pm
a good thing except it probably stops being one when things move from the realm of professional to personal to go to work for a man who. is pretty and disciplined doesn't doesn't like to read doesn't read briefly. report's doesn't doesn't like to get into the details of a lot of things bricks to listen didn't have the mental capacity needed he was dumb as a rock and i couldn't get rid of him fast enough he was lazy is how we already know a lot about the discord ready in the tribal ministration from former tribe ministration officials i mean let's face it what could north korea do to sow discord in the us what could be his way all of you it's doesn't make any sense the white house does not want to appear to be fragile they're now facing a reelection very soon in 2020 and boldness trying to help trump cover is behind by claiming others are responsible for discord and not those within the wife of course
8:23 pm
the message being that you know john bolton's looking for a pretext to go to war somewhere he's a very devious man he likes to write. shanghai cooperation organization has gathered for a summit and i guess capital bishkek him on call and he became the leader of pakistan last year will attend and plans to meet with some of his counterparts including that of my peers and prior to his departure he gave his 1st interview to the russian media since he came to power in 20. we have. developed cooperation with russia. between our defense forces there has always been meeting i think our defense personnel have already met and so. yes we hope to deepen our converse. contacts. most of the fifty's sixty's seventy's was spent in the cold war reason we're india was close
8:24 pm
to a soviet union and by this time was close to the united states so we were in different camps. not all things have changed india is also friendly with the united states and biased and is also friendly with the u.s. so we no longer have the cold war situation and so it's refreshing that we have developed in our contacts with russia and they're developing all the time for us to be all tension with india decreases so we do not have to buy arms because we want to spend money on our on our human development but yes we are looking for arms exchanges we develop more gaunt we prove our trade russia is. energy surplus country a pakistani has shortages and energy and so we hope to talk on those areas we already are. but also apart from defense we want to also improve our trade in
8:25 pm
other areas with russia we hope our 2 delegations will soon go to russia we will invite the russian trade delegations. give opportunities to invest in pakistan. thanks for joining us this international went back in just over 30 minutes with all the latest headlines. why a paradise with some around turned into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have many of these people who have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot
8:26 pm
in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental racism going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. we are in a strange situation where everybody is making a lot of noise about military action against iran but nobody in the part of that alliance actually wants to do it there's no desire for it so do you hope that iran makes a mistake. somehow and then does it some kind of confrontation and then the iranians will be forced to come to the table you know begging for some kind of solution on american terms but you know i think that is dreaming that's a pipe dream.
8:27 pm
this is the old boss broadcasting around the globe and covering the world of business and finance an impact upon us all time to anybody in washington here's a look at what's moving the markets today while prices are on the rise after an attack in the world key oil producing regions this comes as the u.s. is storming toward with an expansion of oil production our correspondents tight sites have been darren alex mahela that are on hand to drill into the bigger picture in the oil markets is the trans-pacific trade fight continues it's having an impact on stocks on both sides of the ocean drug group the institute for china american studies is on hand to rip through the harsh rhetoric and get to the numbers finally as the effects of the trade war weigh heavily on china another link
8:28 pm
at the economic chain begins to last swine fever grips the nation's ports supply horwitz above the trading joins us to lay out how china plans to get through tough times ahead we have a pack show days let's go and died right in. with our global report today in the middle east where dangerous situation is heating up after 2 tankers were reportedly attacked in the gulf of oman the u.s. navy was a ploy immediately to assist the sea vessels as they were blazing their crews were evacuated the situation rings of an attack in may 14 ships were attacked near for jerry row near the united in the united arab emirates an international investigation it's either attack said a state actor was likely at fault in that case this afternoon u.s. secretary mike pompei all announce a trumpet ministration believes iran is responsible for this attack iran has devolved denied involvement in this or the other attack the location of the strike is crucial as it is near the strait of hormuz an important choice choke point
8:29 pm
through which crude headed particularly to asian markets passes the attack has further significance as japanese prime minister shinzo abbay continues his visit with iranian leaders in tehran on the heels of the attack in this crucial region oil part of already started to spike joining us now to. further discuss the moves in the market is archie producer sorry. walter i'm sorry what's going on today with the oil busy markets are these dramatic events well danny all the attacks under 2 tankers in the gulf of oman is certainly the main driver today given the refocus on tensions in the gulf as a result of this standoff between the u.s. and iran but this is actually a fairly modest reaction in the context of the oil market as we see it at the moment and that's because the macro environment is more about concerns of falling demand than it is actually about potential supply oil had been falling recently yes it actually fell to a 5 month low with concerns on u.s. trade war concerns about slowing growth in various countries around the world and
8:30 pm
we still see all of those factors play today as those of macro factors haven't gone away so this move could have been a lot bigger and more significant but still it was enough to make oil investors nervous now after the attack u.s. crude futures rebounded and the price for brant crude and that's the global mench bark surged over 4 percent to about $62.00 a barrel today now daniel prior to this crude oil prices had drifted lower in recent months as a huge surge in american production more than offset the effect of u.s. sanctions on oil producer countries like venezuela and iran and then the opec recently supplied curbs and just today all to cut its forecast for growth in world world demand is year 21140000 barrels a day and that was from a may estimate of 1210000 barrels now in its monthly report or pick said the reversions a largely reflect.
