it's. the. blood of a putin and emmanuelle mccrum discuss the ukraine conflict and the iran crisis in a friendly encounter on the french riviera. the u.s. conducts its 1st test launch of a mid range cruise missile since pulling out of an arms treaty with russia. and a british social media network aimed at young british muslims is real to be part of a government plan to tackle radicalization. i know you're watching the international i'm rosana loquitur welcome to the program . the leaders of france and russia have held a meeting ahead of this weekend's g.
7:01 pm
7 summit emanuel in the corner of latham a putin spoke for about 3 and a half hours reports from the french riviera. well i guess you don't really give personal invitations to an international leader to these kind of places and this kind of format even if it's the president of a very important geopolitical player unless they are your friends so clearly in the past few years mr mack on and mr putin developed a close relationship we heard emmanuel macron call his counterpart dear vladimir a few times and a lot of our putin just when he arrived he came with ok of flowers for emanuel macedoine's wife and it seemed that the french president wanted to make his russian counterpart feel as much comfortable as possible on his visit to france in the commission of the president was very kind and let us sit in the shade while he and his delegation are sitting right under the sun so i'll try to be brief. this kind
7:02 pm
of coziness definitely helps because the 2 presidents have many important tough matters to resolve in particular the crisis in east ukraine and they were frank that they were going to talk about it a lot busy what they want to do is discuss the revival of the so-called normandy format that's when the presidents of russia and ukraine get together with the leaders of germany and france to try and help resolve the cranium crisis which has escalated in the past couple of months while they deployed. with mr zelinsky mr putin and will try to work with the normandy formats in a few weeks. there's no alternative to the normandy format and will obviously supported. now here's something else that's very important the french president emmanuel made it clear that for him it was very important to me president putin face to face before the french leader heads to bad trades that is the venue
7:03 pm
of the upcoming g. 7 summit that's about to kick off in just a few days and this is a summit that russia has not. and part of me for more than 5 years straight after the events in ukraine and mr putin was asked by one of the journalists if russia was keen to return well here's what he said look i'm going to get a little g. 8 doesn't exist anymore how can i return to an organization which doesn't exist today it's the g 7 regarding a potential format with 8 member states we never reject any proposals some time ago it was russia's turn to hold a g. 8 meeting but our partners didn't. and he'd for now it seems that russia and the g 7 countries that were used to be known as the g 8 when russia was still part of it are on the different sides of the barricade when it comes to resolving the crisis in east ukraine however there are other issues like iran or disarmament or climate change in this case it seems that paris and moscow are on the same page and clearly
7:04 pm
this is also a message to donald trump who recently tweeted that and manual macron shouldn't be speaking on behalf of the u.s. that tweet seem to be very angry but at least from what we're hearing from emmanuel macron here at fort bragg on song it seems that the french leader is not changing his mind and they have to try and reporting that those talks also touched on washington's withdrawal from the intermediate range nuclear missile treaty the u.s. has been busy conducting a missile test launch which would have come under that agreement we've got the details of the action a little later. another headline news a social media network aimed at young british muslims has turned out to be part of a u.k. government counterterrorism program reporting from london his. basically work is
7:05 pm
a social news platform the what being a popular use to describe someone who's acutely aware of social justice issues especially racism and uses bright colors it's got a modern bold design and it's basically a space for political and gauge young people to come together and discuss the bunny issues of the day you were created for us to eat and you don't go to. what is fitness lies really which is you put out a toy so that. the topic is off limits. gender issues climate change reaganism cats that's something for everyone and across all it sites has around 73000 followers on one of its most successful videos has hit a 1700000 view mark so it does enjoy considerable popularity but if you scroll through its pages you can see that its content is primarily centered around discussions on british muslims identity and politics so alongside islamic
7:06 pm
holiday said it well wishes you also have debates about varying perspectives on terrorism for example now no one has had an issue with the content of work but rather with its sponsor because the report has just revealed that the platform is the covert arm of a u.k. government counter-terrorism strategy now the home office has not been particularly forthcoming about with details of its involvement with wolk it has admitted that it has material from the project but refused to answer any further questions about the motives behind establishing at all or indeed what. the uses allegedly on the grounds of national security and it's a short statement on the issue didn't really help clarify anything father we're committed to using all the tools available to counter the threat from terrorism in
7:07 pm
the u.k. the home office works and partnership with a range of organizations to reduce vulnerabilities to organized criminal extremist interests throats in the u.k. now it's not just the wider public or uses who want told about the government's role the report also reveals that people who are invited on to woken actually featured in discussions one in form that it was a part of the home office an initiative this is an initiative called prevent that has caused great controversy since its implementation back in 2003 and that's being accused of a sentient being a state sanctioned spying and targeting muslim minorities so the revelation that won't is a part of that very project probably unsurprisingly was met with quite the backlash this complete absence of transparency is just one of many reasons why there is such little trust between muslim communities and government. so angry about home or this
7:08 pm
this is what. i can't articulate myself how can the government expect muslims not to have trust issues with our government the betrayal of trust that we face at every level of every institution include an online spaces media platforms arts and cultural events civic life and everything else is on this list something i think everyone concerned with racism it all needs to be screaming about this is urgent a recent segment on won't discuss tackling fake news i'm sure the irony is not lost on many now that when they look at the platform and see it as a manufactured brand filled with content that's pushing secretly an agenda on behalf of the british government so there are serious questions being raised here especially in a country that was of course voted once as the most transparent in the world meanwhile facebook is expanding its fake news crackdown to its instagram platform
7:09 pm
a new program is reportedly being tested for the public to become their own fact checkers if authorized by facebook to do so post can be marked fake or false and will then automatically be deleted from searches and hash type pages for example someone might decide to post a false statement such as this one using the popular hash tag math expert a fact checker can then market as false the post will never appear again under the hash tag social media privacy advocate bill new is skeptical he says facebook is struggling to monitor its own pages. it's when you get into pictures and primarily with video where things start to get really really difficult and at this moment in time the automated tools that they're using cannot tell the difference between a cat a dog and a terrorist at this moment and the humming certainly would lead you on facebook platform to use an enormous number of me who sit and do nothing but look through these videos to moderate them and to recognize them. taking this sort of technique
7:10 pm
to instagram which is a picture based medium oversee the same challenges we're going to face them and if they haven't got the resources to salute get on top of things on facebook you have to question whether they also got resources to pollutions on as well so i think what we need to see is accuracy and authenticity. u.s. has launched its 1st test of a 500 kilometer cruise missile since playing out of a bilateral agreement between moscow and washington the i.n.f. treaty was signed over 30 years ago to prevent the production and use of such weapons and the scale of more pain has more details we have official word from the pentagon that indeed there has been a test of a missile that would have violated the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty that treaty has now expired and the usa has conducted a test of a missile that would have violated it here's what we heard from the pentagon the
7:11 pm
department of defense conducted a fly test of the conventionally configured ground cruise missile of the u.s. west coast sunday the test missile exited its ground mauled by a launcher and accurately impacted his target after more than 500 kilometers of flight another test was conducted on san nicolas island off the coast of california we understand furthermore are that the test was announced on august 2nd the very day that the i.n.f. treaty expired now the official reason for the united states withdrawing from the iron after. it was that they accused russia of violating that agreement now russia has said they did not and denies violating this agreement we also heard from russian president vladimir putin who emphasized that russia won't be the 1st to boost its military if the usa were not to escalate following the withdrawal of the treaty this is what the russian president said if we receive verified information that the us has finished developing and started producing these systems russia will
7:12 pm
be forced to begin its own full scale development of similar missiles so even after the united states withdrew from the i.n.f. treaty we did not see an escalation from russia however the united states has proceeded to test this missile that would have violated the treaty now it's important to remember that the i.n.f. treaty was signed in 1987 and it was a key moment in the scaling down in deescalation and eventually and of the cold war however odd that i.n.f. treaty that banned nuclear and missiles of a certain length is no longer in effect now russia has repeatedly reached out to the united states for dialogue around this issue but so far the conversation hasn't seemed to start well historian peter because nick says the us has been steadily reducing its open occasions on the arms treaties for the past 18 years as united states has said that this is not nuclear capable and the united states is planning
7:13 pm
for another test probably in november this one and somewhere between 508000 kilometers in range but the one that they're testing in november is miscreants 300-4000 kilometers and range that's another one this is a very unfortunate moves that have been going on for the past couple of years a least well we can actually dated back to 2001 with the announcement that the u.s. is going to let in the a.b.m. treaty there's only one major nonproliferation. treaty remaining the new start treaty which 2021 and the united states has already indicated that it almost certainly will at that one also or not when there is that one which means we are on the verge of nuclear anarchy. in other news donald trump has yet again lashed out at the new york times has accused the paper of launching a so-called racism which hunt after leaks to recording involving
7:14 pm
a senior editor we'll bring you that story right after this break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy loon from day shouldn't let it be an arms race is often spearing dramatic development the only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. in a world of big partisan new things a lot and conspiracy 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
7:15 pm
stop slamming the door on the bad and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. welcome back donald trump has launched a scathing attack on the new york times and using it of producing some of the words journalism in history the outburst came after leaked audiotape most of the paper's executive editor discussing how to cover the president and his administration in the wake of the russia date scandal his. frump is the russian acid this message
7:16 pm
of the not too carefully ciphered in articles and reports has been overwhelming americans and the new york times seemingly used all the power and authority of its award winning journalism to propagate the message. but then came the miller report something that was and to support had to become the fatal blow to donald trump's credibility rebound ricocheted and had the media back with the momentum of a boomerang for the new york times it meant this we built our newsroom to cover one story and we did it truly well now we have to regroup and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story this is part of
7:17 pm
a league transcript from dean baquet the new york times executive editor giving a speech in front of the paper's authors this shift he's talking about is far from good news for trump because apparently now the newspaper is going to degrade him from a russian puppet to something arguably much worse a racist. race in the next year is going to be a huge part of the american story and i mean race in terms of not only african-americans and their relationship with donald trump but latino asian immigration work to the near times for 15 years i think that the new york times has immensely damaged its credibility by trumpeting this narrative trump was a russian agent certainly within the last few decades one of the most egregious journalistic failures a terrible terrible failing and. i find it disturbing that dean baquet the
7:18 pm
executive editor of the new york times what will even acknowledge it mr k. also likes to put the new york times on a pedestal for being one of the few remaining independent journalism sources out there except to believe that you'd have to deliberately ignore the distinctive scent of partisanship reeking from the paper's supposed new racism narrative donald trump publicly and unapologetically embraced a political strategy may hate racism in division he's a man who cosies out to the white supremacist has been about trying to divide us in a way that it's been about trying to sell hate and division among us we have a president of the united states is a racist this is a guy who is worse than a racist he is actually using racist tropes and racial language to for political gain the newspaper might have begun to retroactively implement the changes since it
7:19 pm
recently changed the headline of one of its articles from this to this under the pressure from well the democrats so one thing is for sure race will be a huge part of the american story next year the presidential one what happened. the moeller report did not deliver as the new york times and much of the other mainstream media promised that it would and from that transcript you see that they are going to pivot to another kind of campaign against trump which will be focusing on is racism but none of this is is journalism and some is a kind of switching of one moral crusade or self defined moral crusade with another their coverage of the russia gate of the russian collusion story was a huge flop and during that story critics accuse them of ignoring other things that
7:20 pm
trump was doing so now after russia after the russia collusion story has for off the times has decided to cover other issues like trump and racism but believe me they'll do a very bad job. they'll get a lot of basic things wrong and and death probably benefits rather more than they will hurt in. the u.k. has her vote the citizenship of a film a islamic state fine to and i said canada furious. explains why. well the u.k. has stripped form of fighter jet lifts who has been dubbed by the media as jihadi jack of his british citizenship but not canada has criticized this they say that they're disappointed in the decision don't forget that this jack let's also has canadian citizenship and a statement has been released by the canadian ministry of public safety terrorism
7:21 pm
knows no borders so countries need to work together to keep each other safe. disappointed that the united kingdom has taken this unilateral action to offload their responsibilities let's trucked out of university after converting to islam and moving to syria back in 2014 he participated in a number of battles before being taken hostage by could forces in june 2016 he gave an interview in which he stated that his move to the middle east was part of the search for the truth and he denied having ever been involved in islamic state it's a controversial move by the united kingdom that whenever it finds that its citizens are accused of being involved in some kind of terrorism it needs to strip them of the citizenship it was another case recently of begum who also went to live in syria under islamic state now according to international law no country can strip of posts and of their nationality if it leaves them homeless as it does in the case
7:22 pm
of them lawyers representing her family have actually written to the home secretary and accused british authorities are failing to protect the teenager from being sucked in and being groomed by islamic state the u.k. has a long tradition of stripping its nationals of citizenship as a means of preventing them from returning to britain after they become accused of being involved in terrorist activities european human rights judges have also ruled that this is illegal and the. we see at the moment is hundreds of foreign nationals who joined islamic state moved across to syria and iraq to fight in their ranks who are now being stripped of their nationality and being prevented from returning home . with almost daily warnings of an impending global climate catastrophe germany's green party has been enjoying a surge in support among its ambitious environmental policies as
7:23 pm
a plan to completely phase out domestic flights but overhauling the railways but are most germans on board that peter oliver takes a look. germany's green policies being in full bloom in the polls of late one of the most recent policies they put forward is a railway revolution all trains on a hike to schedule moving at a cheaper price waste that so why fight it with the ultimate aim of making the internal flights in germany i think of the past in the next 50 years by trying to city 5 who want to make domestic flights largely obsolete with all of that said to cost the states around $3000000000.00 euro a year but the rail passengers think of the proposal i definitely would support the policy i think i drive to take the pain more often at the trains 3 than the plane yeah if the whole net truck would have to be in a better condition going by train is really expensive and it's not very comfortable
7:24 pm
if you're doing a lot of traveling like meat it's nearly impossible to cool the room to germany only 3 so. the moment there's no alternative forms of things because of the suv i'm not a frequent flyer but in that case i would abstain from flying altogether. my last minute ticket from munich cost me 160 euros if i booked an advance it would have been cheap but if i booked a flight to that sounds it would have been a fraction of that cost everybody wants to see travel be quick and cheap bring them however how much of this plan is achievable and how much of it is just a headline. this would be a long way to go because it requires. investments in infrastructure and so far germany is struggling since years to complete the railway in structure
7:25 pm
projects to $21.00 which was supposed to make flights obsolete in the south of germany by allowing for fall. to rain kind of train connections between paris and the end of. the broaddrick this delay to paris become twice as costly as the planned time so yes i ask myself how is it going to be put into practice. here we are in munich now that journey took just short to find a vowel is under the proposed plans all journeys would have to be completed within 4 and it's not just by lowering train face that the hoping to get people to the plane and take the train it's also why raising asp as part of the plan is to put taxation on kerosene jet fuel on a level with taxation on petrol at $65.00 euro cents a liter currently depending on the length of the flight passengers will pay up to
7:26 pm
around $40.00 euro in taxes according to calculations from the german environment ministry increasing kerosene taxes could raise as much as $7000000000.00 euro are new here at the main report in munich we found a real mixed bag of opinions when it came to getting people off planes and on to trains. it takes longer so i wouldn't want to travel a i was for so much that several hours i think it should be wise verse that should be better to invest in the infrastructure of the trains that federer cycles. reliability better prices not going to take the train to bin laden where we're going now. 10 hours pay like yeah the same of going to kill is he going kerosene into consideration i think trains are better but not in terms of speed. but when the trains don't go away you need to the only option available is
7:27 pm
the cost germany has the highest level of call rhona ship in the european union and the germans love affair with the automobile certainly not going away anytime soon peter all of a. eunuch. well that's your news updates i rise on a lot could not be back here with more headline news in just over half an hour see them. guys are trying to handle for one jot that it was all about money laundering 1st to visit this could just be a different. get this is a good start well we have our 3 banks all set up for you maybe something if you're something going to america something overseas or the cayman islands or do all of these banks are complicit in their tough talk or serious up to give mccoll it's a him ready to do some serious wounds are ok let's see how we did well we've got
