here just in time for the. north korean media says the country's leader kim jong il has ordered scientists to redouble their efforts to further develop nuclear capabilities the u.s. envoy to the united nations said pyongyang is quote begging for war however previous warnings from washington do not seem enough to dissuade the north from conducting its latest nuclear test. enough is enough i think enough is enough the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now time is short action is required our country's patience is not unlimited the policy of strategic patience is over or is never something the united states wants the united states does not seek conflict only the strongest sanctions will enable us to resolve this problem through diplomacy to all of our counterparts need to impose to sanctions we will defend our
allies and our territory the united states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies and this comes as washington also says it will deploy troops and weapons to the korean peninsula on top of already existing american air and naval bases their aircraft carrier strike group anti missile ships as well as fighter jets and helicopters will be sent to south korea and the accelerated deployment of the us missile system bad even lead to violent mass protests among the locals was . god. meanwhile other regional players like russia and china offered their solution to
the standoff over north korea or this emergency un security council meeting on monday moscow and beijing proposed what's being called a double freeze initiative under the plan north korea would stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in return america and south korea would stop their joint military exercises however the u.s. dismissed at this proposal calling it quote insulting a washington correspondent jacqueline for. ultimately at the end of the day to gain from an escalation situation on the peninsula the north korean threat is something we hear on a daily basis from u.s. officials with the statement supporting bremer and grammar and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for war. they will be met with fire fury the stakes could not be higher the urgency is now this may not get away with what he's doing believe and the urgency is still strong the u.s.
is rolling out a range of american made weapons to save the day on offer for remaining rocket launchers for the u.s. missile defense system korea also increased amounts of highly sophisticated military equipment which trump this kindly allowing both south korea and japan to purchase and the infamously troubled after the five fighter jets also be added to that package i think of bonus but not free of course but look forget that north korea is by no means the only threat to global security and america for decades iran has fueled the fires of sectarian conflict and threatening the region and causing so much by a little it's all nations of conscience most work together to isolate her and all of those attacks are music to the ears of saudi arabia an american ally and fellow detractor of iran so of course riyadh was all too ready to sign a one hundred ten billion dollar defense deal with from neighboring qatar also
agreed to buy over twenty one billion dollars worth of american military hardware now trying to approach the conflict is definitely pragmatic make a quick buck if you can right and clearly this guy can sell anything even managed to find a way to spin continuing america's sixteen year long war in afghanistan as the prime minister of afghanistan has promised we are going to participate in economic development to help defray the cost of this war to us if you can't solve the problem. see if you can at least turn a healthy profit instead of i'm a businessman that's what i'm supposed to do that's what i'm supposed to do. i think a lot of people project on the behavior of the united states maybe of other countries that it's all about business it's all about making money for the arms manufacturers and the plane manufacturers and so forth the people who make missiles the militarization of the policy of using military threats and military force is the only item in our tool kit his son how become so ingrained in their mentality they
really don't consider other alternatives you have people who believe that the united states is and must be the global head of mine that every solution must be solved by a dick top from washington and whatever force and threats are necessary to achieve that end will be employed. the syrian army has secured a milestone victory in the war against islamic state after it broke the three year long terrorist blockade of the city odette as all local journalist as much and reports from the from. the syrian army managed to break the siege over the military airports here in datasource state run media reported today that the military operations started by the forces into cemetery in the south was the don't result link with forces holding the m.p.'s of the airboats this is of course the same as meeting between these
forces within nine months this comes only a few days after the russian backed forces managed to break the siege over the it was then szell areas here in dubai so. some analysts and observers believe that this is would be and maintaining bones in the war against the goal is to liberate all that is the initial areas not just a few of those areas then szell areas and districts in the hands of extremists civilians live is going to be much easier from now on. and their suffering will end the syrian army has made significant progress against just the past few months in its advance on dead as all it gained around eight kilometers a day both civilians and soldiers were celebrating when the advancing army finally joined with the remaining syrian forces that had been trapped inside that city. was.
a correspondent has more details now on well how the victory was made possible. to three years and two months besieged. one of the longest blockades in modern history the city was completely cut off from the outside world dozens and hundreds of kilometers in every direction that was. out of the city was a dangerous helicopter trip.
thank you thank. you but he's. going to have a job at the bottom of. the situation seemed hopeless until now. well this is the final chapter of the battle of daters or elements of the syrian military have broken the siege they have reached the defenders taking thousands of square kilometers from isis in brutal battles you could have predicted that the syrian military would reach their resort in such a short time but it's evidence again that isis in syria is crumbling while isis is weakened on the retreat they would fold they will be plenty of brutal battles ahead
but this is a turning point by breaking the siege of datasource the syrian government has won one of its most significant victories during the civil war reportedly isis puts up stiff resistance as the syrian military approached the city they sent more than fifty suicide car bombs in order to impede the advancing military units russian air force had to carry out hundreds of ash strikes on isis targets there intrenchments their bases as well as bomb making factories and weapons factories more than that the russian navy launched a salvo of cruise missiles that isis targets and there is order in order to open up this color to into the city siege has been broken but it hasn't yet been lifted isis still surrounds their resort they also hold a number of districts inside the city and it will take
a big battle to clear the roads and to advance further outside the city nevertheless this is a significant victory that is being celebrated in datasource both by the defendants and the civilians who have suffered so much during this siege it will take more than one two to describe what they have been through and syria is celebrating with them their allies as well this is a tremendous vic. three against isis we discussed the importance of the syrian army's latest victory with the former u.k. ambassador to syria peter ford going to be the breaking of the extremely significant militarily and psychologically tremendous booth for the morale of the government and the government for through. we must be a bit cautious not clear whether it will take days or or weeks to clear i flew out
of the the the main fifty of your and then the fourth who can look forward to consolidating the control of the government in pocket jihad these will. hold sway so it going at beth beth going to take a number of months before the syrian government really control over the whole of syria. this week so angry reaction from moscow to the aggressive search of a russian diplomatic compounds ordered shot by the united states video of men searching on the roof and ripping up the flooring at one of the sites was posted on the russian foreign ministry is facebook page shortly after personnel had left the building f.b.i. agents checked basements and attics draws on closets with moscow saying the whole operation made no sense. now the u.s.
state department or spokes person had to know what faced a barrage of russia related questions after she referred to the searches simply as quote a tour of the facilities involving questioned she suggested some of those present sounded like they were working for this channel. it's normal that in programs are what's your name let's move on move on to something else if you still consider that sovereign russian property or were those property searched because there was a concern that they were being used for intelligence purposes which would be like a different issue i'm just not going to get and i don't let it lead in this i'm so let's move on to something else here in russia or any other country u.s. missions that. they cheated had been searched by the host. governments you know what i don't know if you are working for r.t. today or what but i think. just the latest development of the ongoing diplomatic spat and the u.s. ordered russia to close three diplomatic premises in forty eight hours immediately
offered to fiction u.s. offices at the san francisco consulate and trade missions in new york and washington in response to the seizure on searches of property russian president vladimir putin the russian foreign ministry to take legal action. because kristen or american counterparts didn't let russia use its property it's a violation of property rights i will tell the foreign ministry to go to cool see how well the highly praised she dishes system in the u.s. works how about washington says it wants to end the diplomatic crisis two days off of putin's remark on taking legal action the u.s. state department at this to say we would like that relationship to improve we don't want to continue this kind of diplomatic tit for tat people in the united states need to get over this russia hysteria and that's what it is that's being ginned. by the media here and americans need to call for more friendly and constructive
relations with russia it's my firm opinion that russia all along has want to friendly relations has wanted the u.s. as a partner and there's no reason that we should reject that all of branch that i think russia has been holding out for some time on us entering that. pretty was a violation of the vienna conventions. and i don't know where it's going to end i do get the sense from russia that they do not want to escalate it is audience or national plenty of the weekly still coming your way and poor old school jeered booed pelted with tomatoes a campaign trail is getting rather messy with the. local
blogs telling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings peace to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battles that will. produce talks for the tell you that will be gossip and tabloid but. we. will watch. for a single. training very young. eight months of intensive school. raps. and they save lives.
it's good to have you with us today for the weekly german chancellor angela merkel's been facing a rough week both in and out of parliament with just two weeks to go before the federal election she's been out on the campaign trail trying to drum up support with what he has to be mixed success i. would buy demonstrators during a rally on wednesday the day before a protester threw tomatoes at her during a similar event the chancellor has criticized those causing disruption but this week it wasn't just who got in the way you missed my speeches. well she was also recently interrupted by her main rival from the social democrats party. this for taking credit for their work but she didn't hesitate to remind those president who's really the boss that's with you by thick sounding when you by name get on the
helped. good alternative for germany is not going to be halted any coalition with. more likely to be part of a coalition with the mrs merkel all the free democratic policy of tussocks the liberal business they film charismatic and photogenic leader has appeared front and center however he does appear to have lifted so of his migration policy right out of the alternative think djibouti playbook if peace prevails refugees must return
there is no such human right to choose a new place in the world i'm not being harsh this is realism speaking aping the a.f. there may prove to be a wise move as he looks to shore up his own party's position basically this is just political maneuver to get more voters from this from this side of the spectrum f.t.p.'s at the moment constantly collecting in all kinds of fields voters for example with all these digital subjects and now with this new statement about refugees they try to pick of course also people from if the from the right wing side on the move has already ruled out forming a coalition with the left party the greens this time out at the lagging way behind in the polls even the possibility that we could see into the grand coalition with the social democrats and that's when it comes to coalition possibilities there are even some that would see i'm going to look cool not be the next chancellor of
germany however the most realistic options are that the free democrats will not only return to the fold to start following september the twenty olds post but that they will also be part of the ruling coalition peter all of a people in. russia's upcoming military drills where the belarus are aligning its neighbors and eastern europe despite assurances from moscow that there purely for defensive purposes rushed. and bell the roots are to hold joint military training exercises this month i was planning to be real serious about this but hey how can i resist when the reactions pouring in are just so colorful what washington thinks russia does or about to do an exercise in be able rouge russia that's going to tail up to one hundred thousand russian troops moving into into that country the great concern is they're not going to leave and that's you know that's not paranoia
oh and did you get that one hundred thousand troops that's just the russians not counting the forces and bella ruse i mean that's probably enough to storm europe and yes they are concerned what europe thinks russia does it is undisputed that we have seen a demonstration of the capabilities and power of the russians and one who does that has only to look at the high number of forces participation in this exercise more than one hundred so that it doesn't end there there are more fantastic predictions was that a neighbors think russia does well seriously worried the head of the zappa twenty seven thousand drills is numerous aggressive forces taking part in it and there is of the most of preparation for war with the west now russia and belarus are allowing three nato observers to monitor the exercise even though the alliance thinks that is not enough but hey they are supposed to be a hundred thousand troops yet at the same time nato secretary general mr stoltenberg says there is no i quote imminent threat to any of its allies confusing
right and how this bell or see the upcoming drills we should just stop making excuses whether our drills are defensive or not we have an army we have a join russia and belarus military formation in the west and while it exists which we did make a secret off we're going to train it how to fight just in case now let's take a look at the real numbers from the russian ministry of defense in fact it's thirteen thousand soldiers around a quarter of them arriving from russia plus three hundred military vehicles and twenty five aircraft doesn't sound like a blitzkrieg now does it. the russian defense ministry said it was surprised that the german side had used numbers apparently plucked from the thin air even though all the relevant information had been provided well beforehand security analyst paul ingram believes that russia's neighbors are over reacting to these drills. i
don't think there's any reason for the neighbors to be particularly concerned there's no rational reason why russia would be wanting to actively threaten those particular neighbors so it's a classic case of. concern on the part of those countries that are close every reason for russia to be to be exercising because otherwise what's the point of having a military but i think that this is particularly a storm in a teacup at the moment because people are paranoid we move to either be over reactive over paranoid or on the other hand to trigger that paranoia on the other side and take active steps to to to ratchet it down it is our international thanks for sharing your sunday with us for this edition of the weekly we are back in about an hour to.
