and a very warm welcome to you you're watching us and. that was. it was. that. he was maybe sends a 2nd destroyer to the site of 2 ship fires in the gulf of them on after accusing iran of attacking the oil tankers. became home secretary hands a u.s. extradition request for julian assange so the courts meaning the whistleblowers fate could be decided as a hearing on friday. a new alliance of euro skeptic parties in the european parliament say they're ready to oppose the extension of anti russian sanctions.
or welcome you watching r.t. international with me in a caring top story this hour the u.s. has accused iran of us hike into oil tankers in the gulf of amman and sent missile destroyers to the area the un security council has just held an emergency session on the incident there was an angry exchange between the u.s. and iranian and voice. the united states assesses that iran is responsible for these attacks iran categorically rejects the u.s. unfounded claim with regard to the thoughts of june all tank incidents and condemns it in the strongest possible terms. right off the 2 tankers caught fire u.s. secretary of state mike pompei was quick to point the finger at iran callup morgan has the details. well the u.s. secretary of state is placing blame for the incident regarding to oil tankers he says that the islamic republic of iran is responsible and that that is the position
of the united states this is what we heard earlier from mike pompei oh these unprovoked attacks present a clear threat to international peace and security a blatant assault on the freedom of navigation and in an acceptable campaign of escalating tension by iran now to oil tankers were involved along with $44.00 crew members that were on board those oil tankers the incident took place near the strait of hormuz now at this point we're hearing that one of the vessels of the front all tear was described as quote on fire and adrift and we have photos that have been appearing on social media of the flaming vessel the burning ship now front line which is the oil tanker company that owns these oil tankers it has confirmed to russian media that there was no oil spill caused by the flames now furthermore we understand that there were actually 11 russians on board of the ship
and that the ship the oil tankers were sailing under the flag of the pan of panama and the marshall islands now the u.s. navy reported 2 distress signals in the morning as this was taking place iranian media is reporting that it was an iranian vessel that was 1st on the scene and it has essentially reached the scene and rescued all 44 of the crew members who were involved in the incident they are now getting medical treatment in iran now we also understand that some media is reporting that a tarp ito was responsible for hitting the oil tankers whereas other media is saying that this was a mine incident that the vessels hit a mine now folks will recall that back in may there were 4 oil. angers in the united arab emirates that were hit and that unnamed state actors were blamed for it after investigation we now see washington blaming iran for this incident that just took place and we understand that a u.n.
security council meeting is scheduled for later today to discuss the incident so all eyes will be on the u.n. security council as they begin the meeting and we now have my pompei was saying that iran is to blame for the incident people will be wondering looking for more information a lot of quick developments here a lot of nervousness in the international community in response not just to this incident but in response to pompei owes an announcement well seeming to nice down if they have views on what may have happened to the. washington with mr palm piro and mr bolton are really trying to. escalate the situation so that they have an opportunity and an excuse to attack iran and also in the current situation when these 2 tankers were supposedly torpedoed. us is not providing any evidence that it's also part of the problems for the
americans there are more getting kind of the signals one expecting from iran nonetheless seems even that kind of scenario. the i think that what we are. i have been left with. well many would use the proxies like. it was young learned and then they will use every possible 3rd of their buyer dick and disrupt the crude oil from the go forth among the usa ones to remove the current government in tehran mr bolton has clearly been rubbing his hands with glee over the last decade when he wasn't a security adviser that he once removal of the regime in tehran mr pompeo has also many times said that they he wants the government in tehran to
not be day in power americans are trying to create a situation we're in iran is are forced to actually come we're going to push it into but only storms and condition and i think that is unlikely to happen given the fact that you simply by the japanese. or bing 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 easy. really 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 here as. well surely blocks. all but you have to have rules doing this in the. u.k. home secretary has handed us extradition request for julian assange to the courts
which will now consider the wiki leaks founder fate and hearing is scheduled for friday in saudi edwards reports from london. well it's a dark day for doing a silent and his supporters as the u.k.'s home secretary sajid javid has just signed an order paving the way for genocide to be extradited to the united states now he himself said that he was pleased that you're in a scientist behind bars and that justice will prevail in this procedure you're very pleased that the police were finally able to apprehend him and now he's right behind bars because he broke you cade law i want to see justice done at all times and we've got a legitimate extradition request so i've signed it but the final decision is now with the court well it must be noted that the final decision is for the courts and the courts alone of course the united states does want your innocence for 17 indictments under the espionage act for publishing and delivering classified communications and documents all related to the iraq war and the war in afghanistan
but also conspiring and even indeed hacking government computers and publishing these secret documents now the platform of which was used to do this is wiki leaks and the editor in chief india says that genocide will not receive a fair trial i don't believe that we are going to win this with legal argument there is no chance the julian will get a fair trial here in the u.k. or in the u.s. of course unless there's a change of reporting that people actually start speaking out we're. talking about a prosecution we're talking about a persecution welcome to the scientist 1 serving a 50 week sentence in the u.k.'s belmarsh prison that's a high security prison here in the u.k. and that was for skipping back in 2012 now this is a video filmed inside the belmarsh prison by an inmate and it was a tame by artie's video agency ruptly and as you can see he looks somewhat i'm a c 8 and rather skeletal there in the belmarsh prison now last month during
a sonorous 1 actually moved to the medical ward there and his father earlier this week said that you're innocent as recovering from a dramatic weight loss during his time in the belmarsh prison and indeed the ecuadorian embassy of course jurors aren't was thrown back into the public eye back in april where he was forcibly removed by british police from the london's ecuadorian embassy where he was actually seeking political asylum and he was holed up there for almost 2 and a half 1000 days which is the sum of almost 7 years in confinement when it isn't just the united states that want your innocence we're also hearing that swedish prosecutors want you in a silent for sexual assault allegations made against him something that your innocence he himself them in need denies you also believes it's a pretext to then extradite him to the united states internationally douglas mcnabb says there is an imbalance in the extradition treaty between washington and
london. i think that any extradition counsel whether. it's for the for the crown or for the defense is going to understand as in many other extradition proceedings particularly one that's. high profile like mr sawyer that politics this point come into play i think it's shiny i don't think that it should look to me to apply in any explanation proceeding i think that an extradition hearing should be based solely on the decision and the resulting decision if you're for or against extradition should be based soley on the law but i also believe that that's a naive approach and i do think that politics will factory post 911. the u.s. and u.k. . entered into an expert dition treaty that provides for a lower. standard of proof that the us passed
a my to have someone extradited so it's much easier for the us to have one extradited from the u.k. to the us than the other way around and i'm not so milieu or with any other extradition treaty that the u.s. house where that floor standard where that even standard is between the 2 bilateral states as president of the us treaty. human rights watch says a british government report wide lushes saudi arabia's role in yemen's humanitarian crisis the british foreign office for paul it states that the conflicts in yemen has had a devastating impact on people's lives but stoney mentions saudi arabia one of the signs on the ball in connection with the alleged use of secret prisons. and missed international alleged the use of secret prisons in areas under the saudi led coalition's control there was no reliable process for inquiry into detainees held
at these facilities he relies watch ads they realize actions in yemen could amount to war crimes and accuses the u.k. of turning a blind eye. the report's most striking weakness 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 hit hospitals funerals weddings markets civilian homes and even a school bus killing and wounding thousands many of these attacks maybe work crimes . says 2015 percent has sold $4700000000.00 pounds worth of weapons to riyadh making it one of the biggest exporters of alms to the kingdom the issue of weapons exports to the saudis has sparked heated exchanges in the u.k. parliament we requested comment from the british foreign office although safe are we have not had a response the saudi led coalition began its bombing campaign against hate the rebels in yemen which riyadh sees as terrorists back in 2015 saudi arabia insists
is doing all it can to reduce civilian casualties the un has described the situation in the country is the worst among made humanitarian crisis on earth a warning you may find some of the following images upsetting. the bomb is a killing the cholera but the number of people who are in hunger because of a blob. of data. the foreign office is trying to get or aha from the british. or the
illegal action or saudi arabia. 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 these unelected dictatorial monarchical governments in order to secure all natural gas resources and the people of yemen fighting for their liberation is enter thema to their foreign policy goal and it informs your a skeptic bloc opposes the extension of anti russia sanctions who have the story and more after the break. so you say that brings this to the end of the series if we could just let josie marino walk away so we decided to treat up stuff goes to a very special farewell party because.
welcome back here a skeptic parties in the european parliament have formed a new alliance called identity and democracy they'll be the 5th largest group in the parliament with around 10 percent of seats they've also now announced they intend to him oppose the extension of anti russia sanctions maria phoenician has the story. we have been hearing about the nationalist alliance in the european parliament for quite some time already and on thursday in brussels the leader of france's national rally then announced that officially saying it is a drastic change to the political chess board of the european union identity and democracy or shortly aidid that's the blocks name will unite the right wing parties 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 parties who are us 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 fit 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 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 makes it to feast largest alliance in the palm and which makes the chances a very high that the party will be successful in pushing forward its policy and we indeed are going to see the taint is 10 talked about there are many lawyers them. all the major issues. in the. we have about 25 to 30 percent of us 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 you bring all over all over europe. bring to become more u.s. . elite 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 country and those same actions are not very popular among the people in europe they want not 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 but i don't their nation states and europe u.s. terror politicians come on the pressure. u.s. national security adviser john bolton sais reports of disagreements between donald trump and his top aides are part of a definitive information campaign by the likes of russia china and iran he also branded american journalists who write such reports as to no good if it's of those regimes north korea iran. venezuela russia and china pride to. show discipline from asian about the
administration and to say that the president his advisors are divided and things like that the. 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 venezuela 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 read in you 3 times due to how unbelievable it is that the russians in other bad guys spread this information about a divided opinions of u.s. president and his closest aides seriously when the president and his inner circle have 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 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 on discipline and doesn't doesn't like to read doesn't read briefly. reports doesn't doesn't like to get into the details of a lot of things rex tillerson 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 in the tribal ministration from former tribe it ministration officials i mean let's face it what could north korea do to sow discord in the us what could buy his way would be it 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 the message being that you know john bolton is looking for
a pretext to go to war somewhere he's a very devious man he likes to write. sanger corporation organization has gathered for a summit in the capital bishkek and one can he became the leader of pakistan last year will attend of trying to meet with some of his counterpart think looting flatware putin or prior to his departure he gave his 1st interview to they were russian media since he came to power in $28.00 if. you have. developed cooperation with russia. between our defense forces there as all of the been meeting i think our defense personnel have already met and so yes we will do to deepen our converse. contacts. most of the fifty's sixty's seventy's was spent in the cold war the reason we were india was close to the soviet union and pakistan was close to the united states so we were in
different camps. things have changed india is also friendly with the united states and by this time 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 1st. 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. exchanges we develop more gaunt we improve our trade russia's. 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
other areas with russia we hope our trade delegations will soon go to russia we will invite the russian trade delegations. give opportunities to invest in pakistan those are the headlines for you when i see international back in 30 minutes with more. you know touga 2017 the german newspaper developed published an article claiming that the european union of last 30000000000 euros as a result of its very anti russian sanctions. particularly affected eastern europe many polish farmers went broke and even
committed suicide. sometimes i can't account for as i doze off on a good time i'm a poor top level. on these it floods young to be on the whole saga going just stuff doesn't on the kind of unknown. doesn't then let's see in the in the poor. on does dunce with all the faults and that's what you call.
a paradise with some ground turned into a round the experimentation field the agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to come. 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 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. what do you do before you came here where did you work before you came here when you live well death row and in many us states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend years waiting for execution but most of the time to victims' families they are very much in favor the death penalty there are some people that because of what they do have given up their rights as live among us somebody even proven innocent years on death row and how many more exonerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about it. greetings and salutations and 2017 active were giant nike announced the
amplification of its offerings pacifically for average sized women who make up over 50 percent of the population in the u.s. in the u.k. however their recent move of including mannequins that represent those average size women and one u.k. store has united the buy a firestorm so you want traditional store mannequins are about a u.s. size for u.k. size 8 the one used by nike is closer to a us size 14 or u.k. size 60 these larger sizes and fat. do represent over 60 percent of women in both countries that is however the problem according to some like the telegraph food critic tanya gold who called them a dangerous lie saying that the medicaid cannot run she is more likely pre-diabetic and on her way to a hip replacement which will have many on social media including one of the models for the nike campaign great victory to tweet fat shaming me and my girl on our nike campaign is hilarious will be laughing all the damn way to the bank as is nike who
is seeing huge sales as more women are turning their backs on the lie that you can't be fit and fat sorry kids that's just plain wrong 2011 study by the national institute of health showed that only those individuals that were inactive were at a significant increase risk for all cause mortality independent of being overweight or obese city and another 2015 study in the international journal of cardiology found that overweight or obese individuals who are fit and active tend to have morbidity and mortality rates that are at least as low and in some cases lower than normal weight individuals who are unfit or inactive in other news this week the 2019 women's world cup was a flashpoint for controversy when the u.s. team kicked off their world cup run with a 13 a no win over thailand and they celebrated their goals on the field now some are asking not only of the u.s. team should have celebrated their win but even if they should have been allowed.
