10:04 am

10:05 am
challenges the new year is likely to face well a much anticipated meeting between russia's recently appointed ambassador to the u.s. and u.s. president donald trump has taken place and to nobs predecessor was constantly targeted by the western media portrayed in a negative light over in number of allegations given the controversy surrounding the previous diplomat there are now many speculations around the new figure and as with all u.s. russia meetings this one also attracted media attention especially amid rising diplomatic tensions antonov in particular expressed russia's eagerness to normalize relations with washington and russia for your nation. in brief relations between our two countries to the good relations between the united states and russia. international peace and rigorous as well as a strategic stability according to the diplomat the meeting took place in
10:06 am
a warm and constructive atmosphere commenting on the meeting the ambassador said that moscow is ready to take concrete steps to improve relations with washington and despite the ongoing diplomatic spat between the countries that saw us russia relations sink to one of the lowest points in history and said he believes the situation is mendable provided there is enough will to cast aside political differences and work together now this is all quite a positive shift from the rhetoric we've been hearing from both sides lately and it seems that improve relations between the two countries seems even more promising considering the new russian ambassador was actually a key member of the team that worked on the two thousand and ten new start bilateral nuclear arms reduction agreement. the lack of dialogue on the possibility of a escalation of tension would benefit neither russia nor america that's according to political analyst charles will tell. it's really difficult for me to understand why
10:07 am
our either side is going down this path i mean you know we could quibble and say you know in terms of our population we have a larger population then you could come back and say well we have larger territory and whatever but i mean this is really you know i have two children and a case occasionally when they would fight over small problems and ignore great opportunities you know i would try to teach them a lesson or two i'm not saying i'm try to regard the united states and russia as children but you know with all the problems we face around the world in particular our joint problem with radical islamic terrorism. and i caught i mean it seems to be still that finding its full potential like you go on and on and on with all those problems with with so many shared interests i fail to see the wisdom of going down this path. germany's foreign minister. to the top of the approval ratings in the country. despite his expressed his reluctance to become the chancellor. to the polls in two weeks here's
10:08 am
a quick look at the country's current that. i was close to being arrested in the wrong china turkey and saudi arabia because i visited those countries i like to think i'd be able to refrain from triggering any foreign policy crises of my word. oh oh. after becoming the country's foreign minister gabriele stepped down as leader of
10:09 am
the social democratic party although he still remains one of its members the party is the closest rival to the ruling christian democrats headed by chancellor merkel in an exclusive interview capital told us his hear on the upcoming elections and on sanctions targeting russia. by self i was very happy when two days ago the russian president vladimir putin publicly announced plans to request a u.n. mission of course the conditions proposed by russia are not the same as the ones we all ukrainians proposed but i consider it a good first step and what we need to do now is negotiate with the goal of a stop wishing a cease fire and pulling back heavy weaponry and now we have an opportunity to do that and if we manage to implement the truce at least the political process of reconstructing donbass may start then we can start lifting sanctions against russia i was criticized yesterday for my position on ukraine but i still believe it's correct. by i want people to vote in germany's interests and
10:10 am
in their own interests we want this country to prosper and that's possible only within a united europe those who are turning against europe will weaken our country in the long run. i think russia is just as concerned about islamist terrorism as we are and russia like us is concerned about the proliferation of nuclear weapons if north korea continues down this path and other small countries follow we will want the same thing as russia arms control nucular disarmament and measures to ensure peace establish trust and defeat islamist terrorism our countries have plenty of shared interests. saudi arabia has suspended all dialogue with the qatar that softer qatari media were accused of misreporting phone conversations between the end of qatar and saudi arabia's defense minister donald trump the gulf states to unite against iran and expressed his willingness to
10:11 am
act as mediator between doha riyadh earlier though the us president alleged that qatar was a sponsor of terrorism if i can help mediate between carter and in particular the u.a.e. and saudi arabia i would be willing to do so the nation of qatar unfortunately has a storage leap in a funder of terrorism at a very high level adult made those remarks back in june when four countries in the region first cut diplomatic and transport links with the gulf nation saudi arabia egypt bahrain and the u.a.e. accuse qatar of supporting terrorism. the us has its largest air base in the middle east and qatar around eleven thousand american troops stationed there just weeks after the blockade president trump approved the vast fighter jet deal with doha worth twelve billion dollars terran university politics professor side mohammad marandi believes the u.s.
10:12 am
just wants to boost arms sales to the region. trump really is completely discredited outside of the united states behaving in a provocative manner across the globe trump is very unpredictable so. therefore it's very difficult to say what he's up to and therefore what the position of the united states will be in the future but obviously one of his our objectives is to milk the countries in the persian gulf region they're there for seeing that the kuwaitis to buy more weapons the qataris to buy more weapons the about amy's and the emirates and the saudis are buying more weapons from the united states. one of the most powerful atlantica hurricanes in history is battering the caribbean we'll have the latest updates for you after this short break.

10:16 am
were affiliated with one another and likely oprah rated out of russia this plotline also as a hint of mission impossible to sway the elections for just a hundred thousand dollars compare that with the whopping clinton campaign budget and what was the impact of that mission while facebook estimates that out of all the election related content posted on the platforms only one tenth of one percent resulted from information attacks like the alleged kremlin pain they'll need to do better than that if they want to sell this dollywood but ok what about the main villain i think you know what i'm talking about ip addresses can simply be made up mr putin said referring to internet protocol addresses well showing the striking familiarity with how cyber attackers might cover their tracks president putin mentioned that i can be masked and anyone can pretend to be someone else seems he knows way too much about how it all works there's even a spin off on twitter it turns out the russian bots reply directly to trump on
