missile testing as tensions grow following the collapse of the arms control treaty . on a dizzying display our correspondent takes to the skies with russia's elite aerobatics t. the head of them access show this week and. said nothing about a thing. but why something like. that. yeah but you know that. both of them played. by the i'm calling brian moscow it's r t it's sunday that means we're taking you through some of the biggest stories covered here over the past 7 days we're going to get you up to speed on the weekends developments 1st though starting at the g. 7 summit where iranian foreign minister jihad zarif is making a surprise appearance right now at the invitation of his french counterpart the bilateral talks iran of course being one of the main. focus point for world leaders
1:02 pm
during their meetings this sunday our senior correspondent i guess they have across all this so ok well how many saw this coming up get us up to speed well it was certainly a surprise and judging by the trump had to say not a very welcome one when asked what he thought about the uranium foreign minister coming over all of a sudden you were plied coldly no comment and it's not a surprise the united states stands by its approach by its strategy regarding iran and that is maximum pressure on getting iran to submit and do what the united states wants to sign the deal that trump wants no less the europeans ever since the united states pulled out of the nuclear deal last year the europeans have been doing everything they can to try to salvage what they could to try to keep iran to abide by its nuclear commitments that sort of prevented from from getting anywhere near a nuclear weapon and this latest step is just another part of that. model
1:03 pm
does it no member of the g 7 once iran to develop a nuclear bomb also the g 7 deeply want stability and peace in the region and therefore do not want to take actions that could affect it in this context we discussed our various initiatives. has taken initiatives towards iran i have taken several initiatives and we have reported on them the g. 7 is an informal club there is no formal mandate given within the g 7. well regarded all those initiatives trouble has come out and said outright that the french and the japanese can talk to whoever they want ron to anyone else but they don't speak for the united states he said that the united states stands by its position stands by its approach by iraq because this is no longer about an iranian nuclear deal this is no longer only about nuclear reactors and the pursuit of nuclear weapons it's. now also about iran's ballistic missile program which the
1:04 pm
united states wants doubt this is also about iran's role in regional conflicts the united states wants one surat to pull out of them completely trump is offering the reunions a package that by all appearances they would accept and now word an impasse where the united states is strangling the iranian economy applying military pressure on them the europeans are trying to save what they carried in the arena and swear that they will bend ok well it's been there for a few hours now a lot for them to talk about and a few encounters to avoid as well we're going to that in a 2nd for now though where i guess they have thanks for that. rice let's talk now to a political analyst of same stuff because welcome back to our. very important twist to the g. 7 summit this time around do you think this was a carefully planned invite by france considering president mccrum very funny 2 days ago in paris. hello thanks for having me well could
1:05 pm
be so i mean as far as the european side especially mr maccarone as well as the u.s. president are concerned this seems to be the case because you know there are been much effort saw done by mr maccarone to convince iran that he is trying to do some mediation while we do not see maccarone as a real mediator because it looks like macaroons trying to advance donald trump's agenda further through a different tone and it different wording that's why it's the france's efforts look to be more like receiving as much concessions from iran possible in return for the least for minimum concessions from the side of the europeans or the united states
1:06 pm
a number of offers have been raised i mean according to some informal reports in the last one or 2 months from the side of the french president all focus on very meager you know proposals and concessions from the side of the euro funes like maximum removal of just the very partial part of the sanctions in return for tehran to iran's a stop of its care and moves and strategy of active resistance that includes modifying the undertakings under the nuclear deal but one thing is for sure that iran would not you know agree to such proposals unless there will be an equally bury em between the 2 sides concessions in other words a return of the situation to 2 years ago if the iranian delegation has those doubts or it says as you're mentioning out iran's not only had doubts about france's
1:07 pm
ability to keep this nuclear deal on track but also not some others around that g. 7 table this weekend if that's the case why bother going to parrot what kind of on a chain from these talks. well you know if there if has been invited by his french counterpart to visit paris apparently they they look like raising some new proposal but so far what we have heard is that there is no new proposal of war at least as far as what iran once the europeans and americans have not done anything wrong once is a remove all of all the sanctions that have been reimposed on the nation in the last 2 years and to wrong with not go for any kind of talks or meetings or stop of its current strategy if this doesn't happen also if you don't once the euro peons
1:08 pm
to comply with all their 11 on the takings after the u.s. withdrew from the nuclear deal they promised iran cooperation in 11 areas in sticks is nothing compared to those 11 that include purchase of crude supplies from iran the size that iran wants to sell and the return of the money back to tehran did they are using get i mean the french they are using this these 2 i mean we're chasing iranian crude and returning the money back all through in sticks as a bargaining chip they have not agreed so far to do this completely as they promised in iran that is iran with sell as much supplies as it once but they have they have not undertaken that so far and nothing's going to happen if these 2 conditions are not met by the europeans what about the trump element in
1:09 pm
a lesson of how the u.s. president was left in the dark over this meeting and considering to iran's already confirmed that i'm going to make their u.s. counterparts was keeping washington out of the loop and a deliberate move. oh no as far as we know there have been you know some activists as well as politicians they have been releasing some messages and to either and elsewhere saying that. mr macaroni raise the issue i mean invitation to mr is there eaves today last night at the dinner bank air there were some it i mean the leaders were present including president trump was there and it is said that he was informed twice once last night the time this morning he was informed that paris ones to invite mr zarif it seems very much clear that this is a joint effort by france and the united states in order to pressure to iran to
1:10 pm
agree to at least have a meeting like what donald trump won it to one it necessary to have to have him at the white house and the reigning in foreign minister reject that and turned out that invitation maybe mr maccarone and mr trump hope to arrange some kind of meeting but this is not for sure this is not going to happen there if you is not going to meet u.s. officials not at all going to meet anyone else either apart from france so if anything does come out of that well now we'll look into it for now their side must have a question and thanks for joining us. capitalist protest about how for the 2nd day in southwest transfer triggered by that g. 7 summit in the resort of beer it hundreds of social and climate change activists took to the streets of nearby bio on sunday they could be seen carrying upside down and wrapped up portraits of about you on the chrome the demonstrators are demanding that the g 7 take urgent action to tackle poverty inequality and environmental concerns at least 9000 demonstrators turned out yesterday saturday the 1st official
1:11 pm
day of that summit. and the international aid organization oxfam's also accusing the g 7 nations of failing to address growing inequality in a new report it says that in the united states the poorest 50 percent of the population only one percent of the country's wealth germany and britain are far behind either jacqueline bouvier spoke to oxfam's head of government relations about his charities findings why do you think the g 7 don't work properly what are the main problems more widespread as well. so we think one of the kind of major barriers is how wealth is distributed between people across the world and in g 7 countries so that the 7 biggest economies in the g 7 hold nearly half the world's wealth and actually if g 7 leaders implemented a new tax a new wealth tax where they to tax the top one percent of richest people in g 7 countries an additional not point 5 percent on their wealth then it could raise
1:12 pm
over $200000000000.00 pounds a year now that's a huge sum of money that's enough to educate the $262000000.00 children across the world who are currently not in school and or so to have enough money left over to put money into health care and to fund. enough health care to save the lives of 2000000 people. on some of the week's other big headlines now the russian president ordered the military to prepare a symmetrical response to the united states testing of a previously banned missile last weekend let me put it in stress though that moscow will not be drawn into a destructive new arms race with washington following the collapse of the i.m.f. arms control treaty. i ordered the ministry of defense the ministry of foreign affairs and other cool offices to analyze the threat level created by the activities of the united states and to undertake comprehensive measures to prepare a symmetrical response besides russia is still open to an equal and constructive dialogue with the united states to recover trust and to reinforce international
1:13 pm
security the pentagon's test of a modified tomahawk cruise missile came just 2 weeks after the us decided to kill off the longstanding intermediate range nuclear forces agreement the projectile test would have violated that accord which banned the production of certain land based short and mid range missiles. america's developments of new weapons appears to be part of a broader attempt to counter rising china just this month the u.s. defense chief said he wants to see missiles deployed in the asia pacific region drawing the ire of both beijing and moscow with a look at the growing tensions here's a new trend. that was quick only last month this ground law inched smoking toy was illegal. it's already wiping out makeshift targets off the coast of california just like that and the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty is now part of history so
1:14 pm
soon be ready to see those in different parts of the world the pentagon boss was even quick to say they want to start with the asia pacific but russia is already worried about a different part of the world to eastern europe right near the russian borders as you can see american officials have said they're launching systems in romania and poland are different from the m.k. 41 used in california well the russian government's not buying it. but the american still believes rejected this claiming that the ground based m.k. fools who will no inching system was allegedly unable to launch tomahawk cruise missiles now the fact of the violation is evident it is impossible to dispute it they themselves spoke about it and of course the question arises how can we now understand what will be located in remaining poland would it be missile defense systems or missile strike systems sufficiently long range so why was the i have
1:15 pm
treaty signed by the u.s. and russian leaders more than 30 years ago so crucial to make sure that europe where nowadays america's nato allies and russia actually share a border doesn't turn into a vulnerable danger zone dotted with launch pads one following the test in california of the un secured. council convened this week the russian representative threw a question in european diplomats are you actually ready to find yourself in between 2 rivaling cruise missile arsenals. are you going to avoid responsibility for what is happening with future generations forgive you for this russia's present actions are in line with a pattern of aggression that represents a clear threat to international peace and security the russian federation bears the sole responsibility for the reason demise of the treaty because it will be mine do you not understand that by your responses to the americans you are returning the historical situation when missiles will target european cities from different sites
1:16 pm
. well so far most european states have a grade with the u.s. line d.c. kept blaming russia for violating the i.m.f. deal and that was exactly how they explained their own pull out there's nothing that russia can say osho to change the fact that russia has already tested the 9 i'm 79 cruise missile to range it's beyond 500 kilobytes who's in violation of the treaty moscow's message has remained the same all claims that they were breaking the rules are a lot and on friday vladimir putin had a real go at the u.s. government for what's seen in russia as completely twisting their reality in favor of uncle sam's ambitions. is pretty instead of fixing and an exam to situation and returning back to compliance with the treaty the americans who castrated a propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia as is now clear this was just a smokescreen to hide washington's own breaches of the treaty and its intention to
1:17 pm
leave it this will leave 0 doubt about america's real intentions having got rid of the existing limits is now free to deploy previously forbid missiles anywhere in the world as i said earlier though in the 1st place washington's thinking over a bold chess move in the asia pacific not that brushes far from that area either but it's clear want countries on the mind of strategists and the scene in the 1st place people in the trump administration. yell that. they need to push back on beijing and a hard way they feel that they're running out of time feeling that china is getting stronger and they need to act fast to provoke china into some kind of military conflict all the things that involve china right now is really just a bigger is just a piece of the bigger picture of political tensions between us and china whether

in the luxury areas life ever cheaper money ever since literally not having to work a day in my life because they asked us 40 years ago are gone straight up. clashes have erupted once again in hong kong this sunday as the city's protest campaign continues riot police resorted to using water cannon for the 1st time since the movement began in an attempt to disperse crowds and hold the violence some activists are seen throwing bricks and other projectiles while taking cover under their umbrellas and the authorities in hong kong appear to be taking a no nonsense approach as they march to the demonstrators in huge numbers it comes after the semi autonomous chinese territory was rocked by violence on saturday night which resulted in 29 arrests people in the city are protesting what they see as the erosion of the one country 2 systems policy and beijing's influence over the
1:23 pm
city's affairs. britain's prince andrew has broken his silence on his friendship with geoffrey epstein insisting he knew nothing of the convicted paedophiles and legal behavior that has graced american finance or killed himself in jail this month while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but despite the duke's attempt to put an end to speculation about their relationship he didn't explain why he continued to steal abstain after the multimillionaire had served a sentence for soliciting prostitution from a minor and no stage during the limited time i spend with him did i see witness or suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction i met mr epstein in 1009 during the time i knew him i saw him infrequently and probably no more than once or twice a year i stayed in a number of his residences i've said previously that it was a mistake and an error to see him off his release in 2010. epstein's death has raised a lot of questions and from today a huge amount of speculation so much so that his lawyers say they're not satisfied
1:24 pm
with the coroner's findings and plan to carry out their own investigation one major question is why abstain was taken off suicide watch despite previously having attempted to take his own life.
1:25 pm
and they will fall out u.s. attorney attorney general william was sacked the director of u.s. prisons following epstein's suicide from a money manager abstained was being held at a facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals alongside the likes of the notorious mexican drug baron and it's all chapo we spoke to mark furnish a lawyer for the disgraced financier. the conditions to which he was subjected would go even the needs of the strongest among us it's this is one of the toughest federal pretrial detention facilities in the country and the conditions are inhumane epstein was subjected to conditions that were similar to those of guzman but not remotely justified by his character or what he was accused of because he was not. a violent individual like
1:26 pm
chapo was alleged to have been and he's not a guy who has escaped from prior facilities like guzman was alleged to have done. the real miracle is that we don't hear about these sort of things more about murdered pretrial detainees or suicidal pretrial detainees because the facility. is barbaric and it's a whole it's a it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort of like an american go log for people who have not yet been convicted of anything. one doesn't want to treat the symptom while ignoring the disease and the disease is how people are routinely denied bail with a shocking ease given the laws that congress passed allowing prosecutors and judge to do that ok that's the way to late for this hour thanks for watching next staying
1:27 pm
in the states for an unflinching look at gang culture in los angeles. what politicians do. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to try to be press was like that before 3 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the was in the towels. first sip. oh why paradise with some all 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 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.
