the. way. this is r.t. for a moscow on call and royalty weekly look at some of the biggest stories covered here over the past 7 days but 1st bringing you up to speed on this weekend's developments we're going to start at the g. 7 summit in france where the iranian foreign ministers grabbed the tension after making an unexpected visit for talks with the french president and top officials there the meetings have been described as productive jobs or if then tweeted that the road ahead is difficult but one that worth trying i got an update earlier from our senior correspondent what i guess the. well it was a certainly a surprise and judging by what trump had to say not
6:02 pm
a very welcome when asked what he thought about the arena and foreign minister coming over all of a sudden you applied coldly no comment and start of 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 it. wants no less the europeans and that 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 the sort of prevented from from getting anywhere near a nuclear weapon and this latest step is just another part of that. is it no member of the g. 7 once iran to develop a nuclear bomb but also the g. 7 people who want stability and peace in the region and therefore do not want to
6:03 pm
take actions that could affect it in this context we discussed our various initiatives she 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. regarding all those initiatives 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 because this is no longer that an iranian nuclear deal this is no longer only about nuclear reactors and the pursuit of nuclear weapons this is now also about iran's ballistic missile program which the united states wants. this is also about iran's role in regional conflicts the united states $11.00 so iran to pull out of them completely trumpets offering the iranians
6:04 pm
a baggage that by all appearances they would accept and now worden us where the united states is strangling the iranian economy applying military pressure on them the europeans are trying to save what they cabin the uranium and swear that they won't bend we've been getting reaction from tehran and europe about what the potential results or repercussions could be by the beginning i thought like most journalists that it was an order p.r. stunt public relations effort of mr micawber to make such a success but the fact that. the foreign affairs minister of iran is there is in doubt it's a few meters away from the trial is astonishing is astounding and it seems there is more to it. if germany and france have discussed with the iranians over the last few days and are discussing now with the on of those only in beauty it was
6:05 pm
the french they came to the uranium that instant to stay in the real and essentially what that did it actually prolonged period did iran fully of lies by video and that was very good for the americans i mean it will definitely have an impact iran is plain a major role in the discussions in the g. 7 in donald trump actually made it yesterday that major decisions will be coming in the next few days so i think it is important nevertheless i think it's very very early to talk about an actual agreement between iran and the united states. ok well outside the talks protests have been held throughout the weekend in southwest france against the g. 7 summit in beirut hundreds of social and climate change activists took to the streets of nearby biome on sunday they could be seen carrying upside down and wrapped up portray itself in one room across the demonstrators are demanding that the g 7 take action to tackle poverty inequality and environmental concerns at
6:06 pm
least 9000 demonstrators turned out on saturday the 1st official day of the summit . the international aid group oxfam is also accusing the g 7 nations of failing to address an equality and a new report it says the in the united states the poorest a 50 percent of the population own one percent of the country's wealth germany and britain not far behind either jacqueline bouvier spoke to oxfam's head of government relations about his charity's 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
6:07 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. in the wake of the news now in the russian president has ordered the military to prepare a symmetrical response to the united states testing of a previously banned missile last weekend that it may putin 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

security the pentagon's test of a modified tomahawk cruise missile came just 2 weeks after the u.s. 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 of mid range missiles. america's developments of the new weapons appears to be part of a broader attempt to counter a rising china just this month the u.s. defense chief said he wants to see missiles deployed in the asia pacific region and not through the ire of both beijing and moscow with a look at the growing tensions here. 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
6:09 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 i mean you can see it too but the american stuff leadership to this is you claiming that the ground based m.k. foolishly one launching 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 of you and of course the question arises how can we now understand what will be located in romania and poland with the missile defense systems or missile strike systems a sufficiently long range so why was the i.m.f. treaty signed by the u.s. and russian leaders more than 30 years ago so crucial to make sure that europe
6:10 pm
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 security council convene 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 to 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. us it would have been in my interest do you not understand that by your responses to the americans you are returning to historical situation when missiles targeted european cities from different sites. well so far most european states have a grade with the us line d.c.
6:11 pm
kept blaming russia for violating the i.m.f. deal and that was exactly how they explained their own pull up there's nothing that russia can say or show you to change the fact that russia has already tested the 9 and 79 cruise missile to range it's beyond 500 kilometers in violation of the i.m.f. treaty moscow's message has remained the same all claims that they were breaking the rules are a lawyer and on friday vladimir putin had a real go at the us government for what's seen in russia as completely twisting their reality in favor of uncle sam's ambitions but there was a bit is pretty stead of fixing in an exam to situation and returning back to compliance with the treaty with the americans it will constrain to the propaganda campaign alleging violations by russia as is now clear this was just a smokescreen to hide washington's own breach of the treaty and its intention to leave it but it leaves there any doubt about america's real intentions having got
6:12 pm
rid of the existing limits is now free to deploy previously forbidden missile 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 brush is 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 will push back on beijing and r r. the 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 it's a trade war whether it's taiwan whether it's hong kong protests. state

6:18 pm
by tell of even preventing an imminent drone strike by iran israeli prime minister had this to say about the operation. if someone rises to kill you rise up and kill them 1st in a complicated operation by our security forces we determine the iran's quds force dispatched a special units of shiite militants into syria to kill israelis in the golan heights with explosives drones with great determination and imperfect israeli army operational and intelligence fashion we preempted them and thwarted this attack which we got inside from political analysts and experts on the operations and the regional stability. benjamin netanyahu has been generally cautious and has it and he has learned from past experience mostly by he's produced that he's not used fool for a prime minister put be incumbent to launch
6:19 pm
a campaign immediately on be an election because usually depravity resented and to public is going to punish if it is true that israel did violate iranian airspace then there is probably a very good reason for it because iran is a global supporter of terror iran is a country that has denied the existence of very existence of the state of israel i think israel has every right to defend itself israel has mentioned that in the past and israel will protect its citizens whatever that means when it comes to the iranian threat if it's in the really iranian nuclear threat iranian terror threat israel will work to stop that threat and make sure that it cannot be successful. clashes erupted again in hong kong on sunday as the city's protest campaign continues right police resorted to using water cannon for the 1st time since the
6:20 pm
movement began in an attempt to disperse the crowds and hold the violence and some activists were seen throwing bricks another projectiles well taking cover under their umbrella the authorities in hong kong appear to be taking a no nonsense approach as they march to the demonstrators in the huge numbers that comes after the semi autonomous chinese territory was rocked by violence on saturday nights resulting 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 city's affairs. prince prince andrew has broken his silence on his friendship with geoffrey epstein insisting that he knew nothing of the convicted paedophiles illegal behavior the disgraced american finance you killed himself in jail this month while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but despite the duke's attempts to put an end to speculation about their relationship he didn't explain why he continued to see epstein 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
6:21 pm
suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction i met mr epstein in 1909 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 have said previously that it was a mistake and an error to see him after his release in 2010 epstein's death raised a lot of questions and prompted a huge amount of speculation so much so that his lawyers say they're not satisfied with the coroner's findings and plan to carry out their own investigation one major question is why epstein was taken off suicide watch despite previously having attempted to take his own life.
6:22 pm
why. and and more fallout a u.s. attorney general william barr has sacked the director of u.s. prisons following epstein's suicide epstein was being held at a facility reserved for the most dangerous criminals alongside the likes of the notorious mexican drug baron known as el chapo we spoke to lawyer mark furnish who represented both of them. the conditions to which he was subjected would buckle even the needs of the strongest among us it's this is one of
6:23 pm
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 chapo was alleged to have been 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 hell hole it's it's it's like i don't use the word lightly lightly but it's sort
6:24 pm
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 it for may showing thomas hoshko next week and a half there was a pot. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to get us out of the world of politics sports business i'm show business.
6:25 pm
in this community there are people who believe that it's ok. it's really hard there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids that ask and as a parent. i can come up with arguments and there's a lot of conflict within the game and between the 2 things most of the conflict i would say overall is around money or most of them money is made. close one on the children's clothes seen on each other is good business the state of california alone makes $6000000000.00 a year of the prison complex just to get some point in your life where. you don't care anymore nobody cares about your so you don't care about anything. welcome to max geysers financial survival guide. looking forward to your question about. yanks this is what happens to pensions in britain.
