either welcome or if you're tuning in this is r.t. international from moscow i'm calling bray with you headline news this hour a big story this hour then a trove of leaked documents have seemingly exposed the united states as a major supplier of illegal weapons a journalist claims america has been buying millions of serbian munitions which invented up in terrorist hands across the middle east washington allegedly purchased weapons from 2 serbian state owned arms companies apparently for the police in afghanistan but those arms were then seen and islamic state propaganda video showing militants in yemen you can watch our report on that in full on our you tube channel. and these photos show some of the serbia made weapons and ammunition produced by the same company as we mentioned this time though in syria the 2nd part of the report claims the weapons procured by washington have also been ending up in the hands of rebels and terrorists there too and as the accusations mount r.t.c. goes down of takes a closer look at the evidence. from the start of the war in syria anti government

factions have been enjoying well a gun before all inclusive some pieces fell into their hands as spoils of war where the others came from nobody knew it seemed until now because apart from me de blowing hatred towards assad all these rebels i saw and self-governing jihadists they could have another thing in common a big wealthy arms dealer lurking in the shadows. able gary an investigative journalist has claimed to have exposed an elaborate network of private american companies which have been buying weapons from serbian manufacturers and shipping them to the middle east the journalist managed to get through a labyrinth full of fake trails and dead ends designed specifically to cover the tracks to the network's command center the pentagon.
12:03 pm
in one instance an american company 04 industries used a british broker as its middleman to buy mortar shells from serbian manufacture acoustic and this e-mail says to learn or is a direct proof of that and it was business as usual up until the moment one crew sic was about to get paid because none of the companies that dealt with wanted to wire the money instead they wanted to finish the transaction and through a nother 3rd party british company and this raised all sorts of red flags. bearing in mind that the payment will be affected by the company that is not the buyer according to our law and foreign exchange operations we will need the consent of the serbian government i.e. the ministry of finance in order to be able to apply at the ministry of finance we necessarily need to try a part time agreement verified and signed by the buyer sierra 4 industries the

seller holding corp crew sick and the legal entity that will affect the payment charles kendall and partners limited. it was so suspicious the serbs even questioned if the final destination for the armaments would indeed be the pre-agreed location which was no not the middle east but harmless innocent romania. the draft in jesus is to pick it states the following place of delivery. to china and a base rumania according to the above it should be clearly mentioned that the goods will be used in romania including the purpose of use and the goods will be shipped to romania they weren't used in romania it seems once the money was finally wired of washington's memory was void clean instead the ammunition was flown to qatar and ended up in syria according to the journalist that they have gone so far there
12:05 pm
are private american companies or your company is. very far off from bikini if they use you know are they still think. these are. like you like. using different places after the website it's like this that people are like you problem finding information because they are all using the things like numbers anyway the scheme is using different and much like their berthing their weapons buy up their proud. nation. here or react to americans these 2 they even visited crusade to troubleshoot any potential insurgents on behalf of the seller i also can't buy for that you are
12:06 pm
and that government that this is some of the united states the methods that are in what is not a government officials and private that there is this is the serbian fact of the order they were left behind and. and later on. organizing their ship much less than a year on this same 2 men were awarded. arming rebels in syria. the little affair with the serbs was far from a one night stand type of deal for the u.s. they shipped tens of thousands of munitions into syria drowning the country in arms for years we've worked to stop the civil war in syria and all the leave the human suffering we wanted to reach out to syria for industries remember the american company that initiated the deal with the serbs and imagine our surprise when we
12:07 pm
found out that the company barely even exists it has no listed phone number no email and just 5 yes 12345 employees not exactly a shock. well apart from the company eagle just mentioned we contacted the pentagon and the crusade company for comment we'll bring you those when they come in meantime former british army officer charles bridge says there's no reason to doubt the authenticity of those leaked documents. it's an impressive piece of journalism by any standards i think to produce what share the traveler she's produced and apparently convincing evidence if these documents are genuine and so far at least there's been no indication whatsoever despite the opportunity to give in to people so far showed them as not genuine if the chair near in these documents are indeed as deanna herself suggests they are indeed explosive in their revelations really
12:08 pm
what it shows is that long after we all know of course or many of us know about this operation timber sycamore that was launched by the us was run by many years by them a covert arming and training project for syria's rebels supposedly moderate rebels . but of course invariably many of these weapons ended up in the hands of what even the us deems terrorists in syria that was all supposedly ended in 2017 when it was finally disclosed that it's actually publicly acknowledged that it existed and so now we've got evidence quite clear evidence if the documentation is true and again there's nothing to indicate that it's not that actually this program in another form has continued. the united nations has once again raised concerns over the humanitarian crisis in yemen where the conflicts been raging for 5 years the organization called out the international community for its inaction branding the situation in yemen a collective failure please be warned of the video we're about to show you does

contain distressing scenes at the un says the civil war has left tens of thousands of people dead and many more injured over 700 children have died from landmines alone since 201324 1000000 yemenis are in urgent need of assistance to survive as the country struggles with famine and numerous outbreaks of cholera accrue from our sister channel r.t. arabic visited an orphanage in the capital sanaa. had a legacy i was playing while our she worked raising i heard a bomb explosion and so shrapnel flying in all directions some towards me and then stumbling i ran for home only to find out that my family had been killed my mother and father my brothers and sisters they were all at. the.
12:10 pm
lab with us and because of the war the number of all friends has risen so much that the orphanage just can't house them it's bleak for this children many of whom have to leave russia from the streets. but there are countries which the u.n. sees as specifically responsible for the crisis in yemen in a new report appointed he mentions the united states britain and france for supplying arms to parties involved in the conflict urges them to stop those sales. there are certain states who are well known to be supplying weapons that includes the united states it includes the united kingdom and it includes france to name but 3 the group of experts has recommended that 3rd states prohibit the authorization about arms transfers and refrain from providing arms to parties to the conflict this is because of the prevailing risk that such arms will be used by parties to commit or facilitate serious violations of international humanitarian and human
12:11 pm
rights law and the united states is by far the main arms supplier the saudi arabia followed by britain and france between 20152018 washington sold weapons worth around $10000000000.00 to the saudis u.k. and france trailed far behind with $2100000000.00 and $500000000.00 respectively one of the authors of the latest u.n. report that you saw there charles garraway he told me that the continuing flow of arms into gabbin is perpetuating the war. this is a collective failure of the international community as a whole and it is the responsibility of the international community as a whole and inevitably those people who supply arms have a greater influence on the parties and therefore have a perhaps a greater responsibility to take action to try to prevent violations there is no doubt that it is the continuation of the supply of alms to yemen that is prolong the conflict the u.n. report also calls into question the findings of saudi arabia's joint incidents assessment team nobody claims to investigate violations by the coalition in yemen
12:12 pm
with transparency and impartiality but charles garraway believes that the group's analysis is superficial. the trouble is the coalition has not been cooperating with us and therefore we have very little information apart from what is in the public domain the press releases of the joint incident an assessment team produce are comparatively bland and so far as we can see they do not carry out a sufficient legal analysis what is needed is an independent and impartial system so that is what we have tried to do but the difficulty with examining conduct a full still tease is it's easy to look upwards from the result but the result will tell you very little it won't even tell you what the intended target was and what we need and what the world needs is access to the targeting process so that we can find out what is going wrong because something clearly is. russia's far east where
12:13 pm
5 key leaders took to the stage earlier invited all stock on day 2 of the eastern economic forum russian president vladimir putin was joined for discussions by the indian japanese malaysian and mongolian leaders on how to move forward on things like trade technology and the environment and avoiding global military escalations reporting next from the forum here. that was quite a company in that room the leader of the 2nd most populous country in this world and as we began to realize in the last few years a staunch ally of russia and the plus the leader of japan an ally of the us in the 1st place but as puts it himself a great friend of the russian president vladimir putin and finally the heads of 2 asian men go and malaysia a lot was said about what's left of global security now that the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty is gone because the u.s.
12:14 pm
administration thought that was the way to go in the 21st century mr putin said that he believes the world will have plenty of reasons to worry about after all a potential new arms race is a very big deal which. there are serious challenges facing humanity imagine if the some weapon maybe a nuclear weapon in a little bit over our heads. this could drastically change the security situation across the globe as all american partners keep silent when we suggest continuing to negotiate to some moments there's nothing new in that. another key message from the russian president was that moscow will keep up with all the missile r. and d. that the west will get itself involved in but when it comes to the deployment that won't happen on the part of russia when it comes to the weapons previously. by the i.n.f. treaty until america starts taking the boxes on their deployment plans no matter
12:15 pm
how difficult and serious this issue is though vladimir putin decided it's worth adding a bit of humor and jokingly suggested that america should waste money if it can buy some of the arms technology from russia. but i still don't know do you want us to sell you those weapons they assume they will soon produce their own that might be so but then why would you spend the money if we have already spent it wouldn't breach security but would create balance. another landmark international agreement that is now in real jeopardy because of the new diplomatic methods of the u.s. administration is the so-called iran nuclear deal well judging by what the japanese prime minister said at the plant a recession donald trump and shinzo abi aren't the same page in this regard despite them being allies we have long told the us we have our opinion concerning iran and
12:16 pm
the nuclear deal i wish it would be resolved through negotiations i talked to the supreme leader and he said that iran isn't going to produce or use nuclear weapons he said it very clearly believe it or not before shaking hands and vladivostok mr putin and mr abbay met 26 times before and the japanese leader was keen to point that out once again after all they don't call each other great friends for nothing and he even entertain the audience with his knowledge of a russian prover that suggests that you have to eat all. a lot of salt together to become real friends. the audience here might not know that the summit meeting we've just had was our 27th meeting ladies and gentlemen it's important for you to know that president putin and i have had so many meals together time and time again that one might say we even keel lives of soul together it was clear that the prime
12:17 pm
ministers of india and japan wanted to be good guests and show a bit of admiration for their country that they're visiting and that's when the names of russian poleward busy sen riders started coming up and even quotes around remote indian prime minister even compared to the russian writer leo tolstoy with someone who is known as the father of the nation and in the mahatma gandhi so it's this kind of warmth respect and the desire to hear each other's opinions that is form and vladivostok will be remembered for well on the sidelines of the economic forum and lot of all stock the malaysian prime minister has again criticized the ongoing investigation into the downing of flight m.h. 17 saying the probe will remain biased unless more countries are involved all 298 people aboard died when their plane crashed in eastern ukraine in 2014 on route to malaysia from the netherlands. the. internet to
12:18 pm
lead the nation of investigation it is heavily we that on the side of the people. who suffered because of this case so there may not be. fair and neutral we need to have a neutral body investigate we shouldn't get the experts from many countries who. is for them to decide. what actually happened. but when you have the countries that suffered because. of this. bound to be a little be bias the dutch led joint investigation team blamed russian backed rebels in eastern ukraine preliminary report claims the rebels used a russian made book missile system moscow has repeatedly said that the particular
12:19 pm
system in question was left in ukraine after the breakup of the soviet union and a separate experiment looking at how the plane was brought down a russian and defense company concluded that the missile could not have been fired from the region alleged in the report those results were ignored by the joint investigation team the malaysian prime minister's expressed his anger before over his country not being fully included in the investigation he now says he cannot accept the claims that russia fired the missile because the evidence is simply not right. that the truth about. the cli. is difficult for us to accept but the believe did he know that people who ate purely. and. monday find me did not sound to me and many people in
12:20 pm
the quite right. to say the least it's been a challenging 48 hours for the british prime minister is defeats in parliament continue to rack up against boris johnson over breakfast and a snap election and peace shut down having vast general election on wednesday evening but there's going to be another vote on that on monday that's about for the pm claim almost immediately after his plans for a no deal bracks in the house of commons that bill which will block the government leaving the european union without a deal in place is expected to be passed on friday with options running out for boris johnson has even hinted that he would rather resign than did. les bracks is into the new year right let's get more on this now journalist to broadcaster neil clark hi there neal who got a cornered prime minister he's 4 nil down he's barely 40 days into his premiership you can have another go at trying to get a general election would you rate his chances on monday. well of course it all depends what labor does he needs under the public's terms parliament's act call in
12:21 pm
the prime minister the government needs 2 thirds majority to get the. election through so at the old days of the prime minister to stand up and say right that solving parliament going to the queen and that was it was going to get 2 thirds majority of course as we saw last night labor did not support it at all they said that labor policy is that we would support election when in the circle ben bill which takes no deal it off the table when that's passed and so now the wording is important because some people of the labor say no it's got to have the role assent it's got to be actually a law others are saying no it's ok when it's passed so jeremy corbett if you have to make that his mind up whether he will support. this call for a general election monday which there will be a general election in october or not all waitstill further problems are only corbin's got i think is if he turns down the chance of a general election twice now then i don't think that we typically play down well
12:22 pm
with labor supporters who are itching to get into power itching to topple this government which they despise loads so it's going to be very interesting on mung day the s.n.p. we've got to make the scottish national party call in their important today want to election they may support it on monday and that would put pressure on labor to support so boris johnson is understandably going to go again to try to get this election the question is you probably your next question to be what happens if he doesn't get it well yeah parliament effectively removed his negotiating leverage here where does he go on monday if he fails on that vote for a general election that be 5 different and counting unprecedented. to be 5 no wouldn't it and lot of records to be a prime minister i think he would then very serious possibility of him resigning call it because he said to us countless times in the last 6 weeks or so we are leaving the european union on the 31st of october i want every time you see him speaking he says that and basically this new bill that's passed ben bill as you said removes his strongest ace really the strongest bargaining chip is is being
12:23 pm
able to walk out of the room if he doesn't like what he is offering it and also the extension of brecht's it to the 31st of january 2020 so it could be very humiliating for boris johnson if he doesn't get the election he wants on monday to then have to accept this bill and then have to go to europe and say actually please give me an extension to the 31st and to tell the british public star we're not leaving on the 31st of october after all be a big humiliation my gut feeling really. helps i know boris johnson i work with him i wouldn't say i know it well but from my reading of him. i think he's more likely to resign as prime minister in that situation not as conservative party leader what interesting leap somebody was saying today one way out for it would could be to resign as prime minister stays tory leader right there we have a. caretaker pm parliament have to agree on and then in any subsequent election
12:24 pm
boris johnson where to fight that and he might be in a stronger position then than if he basically accepts the ben bill because he'll be humiliated and you lose a lot of street cred we did with the pro bricks group groups within the party and with party to it but it's a fault so it might be the truest thing in actually did it would be to resign among the if he doesn't get his general election. the constitutional rulebook such as it is of being torn up and it could be different again next hour who knows all right another broadcaster journalist neil clark thanks for joining us on r.t. international thanks colin. thanks the wave of deadly attacks and looting in south africa has sparked a boycott against the country led by celebrities across the continent the violence has targeted migrants from other african countries who flock to one of the continent's most developed nations or mostly reports next from johannesburg. south africa's still reeling off to 4 days of bloody violence have resulted in some 7 people being killed those are figures we've received from the police and some 300
12:25 pm
people being a race to the violence was triggered last week in the country's capital petrolia when a south african texas driver was alleged to have been killed by a nigerian drug dealer now as part of a protest against a south african texan drivers took to the streets because he soon that protest evolved into a demonstration against all foreign is inspired to add the same to around the country and the result has been violence hundreds of foreigners have been days to shoot off to the businesses were attacked the police were forced to use white control mss such as tear gas and rubber bullets and the situation is still rather unstable now because of the nationality of that alleged drug dealer being nigerian a lot of the focus has actually been on nigerians now south africa has temporarily closed its diplomatic missions in at bouchet and lagos in nigeria for fear of reprisals against it stops south african businesses of all suppose they doors
12:26 pm
temporarily in nigeria and the south african foreign minister has said that this is an embarrassment for south africa and she has expressed her great for violence against foreign as nigeria has pulled out of the african economic summit being held in south africa and the nigerian foreign minister has also expressed concern received succumbing in depressing news of continued burning and looting of nigerian shops and premises in south africa by mindless criminals with an effective police protection enough is enough definitive measures the last time there was as in a phobia outbreak like this in south africa was back in 2008 but this is a country where you have an unemployment of 29 a saint which means a very often the distress of people who don't have jobs turns against foreign as often instead of at. being directed against the government and its lack of delivery the 2011 census is the last official census in terms of how many foreigners are in this country and the puts the figure of 2000000 dead at the
12:27 pm
waist and it suggests the figure is closer to 5000000 out of a population of 56000000 who have the sort of violence that has been spreading our own number of progun since in our country in the strongest. i've been talking to a lot of foreigners here in south africa who are very afraid of what is happening there is a lot of fake news that's been spreading on social media with pictures that are not actually even south african showing people being burned people jumping out of buildings with the caption foreign is it leaves south africa's so we're in the process of verifying another the media along with the experts but the situation certainly is dire at the moment i'd say from a in a day or 2 to has your next update after watching the hawks. this is a sticker from the water bottle found in the stomach of the fish the brand is part
12:28 pm
of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day the idea was that let's tell consumers there are the bad ones there the litter bugs are trying this way industry shouldn't be blamed for all this waste the company has long promised to reuse the plastic. that seems cool set their plastic. tank on your own that special projects funded me . on the new vest that is the end of a phony fun now the mountains of waste only grow higher.
12:29 pm
today are things. we do. readings and sell you. with the paranoid pirate noir coals of election meddling by way of fake news ludicrous social media beams and armies of click bought still being banned here in washington d.c. and throughout the corporate mainstream media it should come as no surprise that now the u.s. military is being brought into the mix. on august 23rd the defense advanced research projects agency or darpa announced to the world that it will be starting the semantic forensics program or semaphores to quote darpa
12:30 pm
they will develop technologies to automatically detect attribute and characterize falsified multi-modal media assets to defend 2 against large scale automated this information tax basically they're going against fake news and military jargon yes darpa the defense agency that brought us those wonderful nightmare inducing running and jumping robots swarming drone videos and who can forget the laser guided bullets that darpa is now getting into the business of combating fake news naturally those most afraid of fake news the ones who have worked hand in hand with us intelligence agencies to spread the paranoia over it the us corporate news media they are the most excited about this move by don.
