this situation unraveled kind of in the first place was because swedish officials wanted to follow him following potential alleged sexual abuse concerns now what is important is that those have been long lifted now so julian assange arguments in this latest case to have the arrest warrant lifted is that those have been dropped so any potential alleged breach of bail conditions should also be lifted crucially of course we have to see that organizations such as the united nations have said that his detention is arbitrary and in violation of international law and dorian officials here in london have raised concerns about his potential wellbeing seeing the situation of him staying holed up behind sort of inside four walls for so long is obviously not sustainable according to them so lots of questions now in terms of where this case will move forward obviously what's crucial as well is that within the last month. officials have granted julian assange ecuadorian citizenship also raising lots of questions about the possibility
of potentially him being granted diplomatic status which could make it easier for him to get out of the u.k. but all of those questions really yet to be answered as this hearing continues and now all eyes are going to be on what this judge decides in the weeks to come here in london. thank you all know washington has accused turkey of destabilizing northern syria with its military incursion is currently currying out an offensive against the u.s. by kurdish militia groups there this pushing closer to positions held by american troops turkey is seeking to clear the border area of what it sees terrorist forces here should the u.s. state department has commented on the situation. people now have to flee an area that was previously considered pretty stable i mean what a shame that is think about all that this country has been through and now we're looking at another destruction in northwestern syria because turkey has taken its
eye off the ball isis and going after the p.k. at this time and i mean then the weapons have been provided to the white p.g.a. by the united states the americans haven't kept their promise since man. lately trump statements saying that they won't give any weapons to the y.p. gmo and then saying that we are not giving them any during last night's telephone conversation and created a crisis of trust. well a phone call mentioned there by turkey's foreign minister has also been a source of tension with unkrich claiming what was discussed has been misrepresented by washington president trump relayed concerns the escalating violence in africa in syria risks undercutting i shared goals in syria he urged to heed to deescalate limited military actions and avoid civilian casualties the white house statement about the content of the phone call between trump and dick and we're probably drafted before the conversation took place because it did not reflect the truth or washington correspondence in your account looks deeper now at
the worsening relations between the u.s. and turkey no matter how many times washington says on car its ally the reality is far from it as distrust between the two grows stronger u.s. turkish relations are headed south. turkey is an important nato ally we understand fully understand turkey's concerns should go to. america is in the process of creating a terrorist. america do not encroach on all borders do not provoke cos we will run outs of patient. this has led to consequences on the ground in monday if the turks and the kurds came so close to each other they were almost at each other's throats and then washington literally had to step in to prevent them providing but no lessons learned clearly especially considering the turkish campaign against the kurds in a free and right now. don't
be friends with kurds if you want to keep good relations isn't the only signal washington missed. the coup attempt back in two thousand and sixteen made things worse there's the local one and turkish cleric living in exile in the us and grow things glenn orchestrated and demands that the us extradite him. and recognizing jerusalem as israel's capital didn't do their relations any good either and it even created an opening for air to want to pry out the throne as leader of the muslim world to assistance to wash. look good out of. trump why are you backing israel whether it's ok patient terrorism is that what you were defending one would think that the us would take the theory of their ally into consideration before making any rash decisions but instead of treading carefully washington to cut aid to all of the countries opposed to the jerusalem solution the most important problem between upstairs and turkey is that is that there is no you know nobody you
know trusts their other one this is the main problem for tricky especially talking people and government never rely on never trust in. you not to stress and especially in nicholas and issues. so whether this is all been delivered or not washington has only been tangling that's not further and further. things stateside journalists in the us have noticed they quietly made edit online to the official mission statement of the national security agency it turns out the words all misty trust and openness are not all gone they all core values used to begin with the word honesty saying that the american people have placed great trust in the n.s.a. and therefore the agency promised to honor that with openness while now it instead starts with the phrase commitment to service your side the n.s.a. explain the changes it's nothing more than
a website update that's all it is the effort to delete words that are that mean a lot to americans such as honesty and transparency and what have you has is something that. is important but if if the national security agency's deleting it i think that that means that they're getting more according to reality as to just how these intelligence agencies work they are they're not called the deep state for nothing and and the only thing that they did agree that they did keep was the provision of. respect in the law and and but but even there they fudge on that. they must go cinema was being raided by police after it showed the newly released british film the death of stalin the theatre the film on despite it being banned in russia.
fantastic this is a british movie and it is following the last days and the death of joseph stalin but also the political in a fight that ensued late and the reason it is having some troubles here in russia doesn't really have anything to do with the figure of joseph stalin and himself it is mostly about the timing really because the showing of this movie was supposed to coincide with the anniversary of the battle of stalingrad now this was one of the most decisive moments of the second world war and the bloodiest battle really and the movie and it is a dark comedy it is a satire and in this man a portrays some of the people that made this victory for russia the victory in this war possible for example marshall zuko who's now who's known here as the marshal of victory so the russian ministry of culture decided that maybe some people may find
the timing of the release of the movie a bit insensitive have a listen many elderly people will perceive it as an offensive mockery of the soviet past the country that conquered fascism and most disgusting the victims of stalinism we don't have censorship we're not afraid of critical assessment of our history the license for it was called off at the last moment so it can be shown here in russia but some cinemas like the one behind me decided to you can or they saw all together because this one for example has tickets sold out for days ahead really now when it comes to the public opinion it is played some agree with the position of the ministry of culture and that something like veterans and those who cherish the memories of the great patriotic war they may find this movie a bit offensive but others are saying that this is not and this it is not intended to be sturrock accurate and shouldn't be taken too seriously which i don't think
they should have banned it whether one likes it or not is this person's business i leave during the time and i saw. i was there and what i just showed. doesn't the found me. well it's a terrifying film. i laugh as a comedy i think it would be well received in most countries i'm not sure it would be as funny for british canadian or american people or for those who know the historical context but for me it was interesting and it was a good comedy is very important to show the film and i'd like to thank the pioneer cinema for ignoring the ban on the film it's worth the risk months ago a russian made movie found itself in an identical situation the film called matilda followed the love affair of the last russian tsar nicholas the second with a ballerina now the reason the that film faced so much opposition both from the politicians and from people in the street was because nicolas the second was made a saint by the russian orthodox church so the details some of the details of his
love life could be disturbing for deeply religious people in russia the outcome of that story was the movie was allowed to run in cinemas and people had a chance to make up the room mind while the case of this movie it remains in limbo . but from culture to a more athletic theme the greatest sporting show on earth gets under way in russia this summer if you think the twenty eight hundred fifty world cup might inspire you to improve your footballing skills artie's very old star stunned collymore meets the man who designs the boots of some of the game's greats take a look. one guy came to me one day and said ok i need the crystal and flu crystal yet for my regular weekly game with my friend. that. sunday morning. choose the game. to stall to do you want two thousand and six seven
so we left the twelve years like how many times and for. some time issues i mean. probably close to. life. if you all think that what we're going to do is we're going to make some stan collymore special boots i would make it simple really simple. just inspired by. your show they look really fantastic thank you thank you saw moche wish you all a very best in the future i'm going to send you some black plentiful fruits and see what people. the german media has revealed a growing concern in berlin over the number of islamist extremists in south east
europe those claims were based on classified documents obtained by germany's left party our europe correspondent peter all of our picks up the story there's a growing threat from islamic extremism in europe based in the balkans and the german government is keeping it to itself that's according to a highly classified report that's being seen by some left party and pays the media . the german federal government cannot discount the basic threat posed by individuals and splinter groups in the islamist scene in bosnia-herzegovina. the hush hush document goes as far as to claim that there's a direct link between radical islamic groups in bosnia herzegovina and people in germany the true nature of what this heavily classified report says doesn't come out parts of it were redacted from the copy that was shown to the left party the federal government has been trying to downplay the growing islamist threat in public furthermore it's entirely unacceptable that the government continues to
cover up the role of the gulf states my colleague charlotte devinsky traveled to bosnia herzegovina back in december she witnessed firsthand the situation on the ground there regarding islamic radicalization the local a mom is telling me that some of the residents have joined islamic state and it's one minute of the road and there are people who went to syria and forth on the side of ice but we tried to stop them. it looks like an ordinary sleepy village a few houses nestled between the hills not how you might imagine a cradle of terror. a local a man says he fears for his life after speaking out against those who joined eisel we would do with these radical elements are always unpredictable and these people prayed with me the aid at the same table as me and they want to shoot me this has
been edited version of the report issued by the government raises a lot of questions over what exactly germany knows about islamic radicalization in the balkans and how bad the situation actually is as we see in the arts or to our parliamentarian question the german government gives the extra time its expertise that it doesn't explicitly in the gate the possibility that single persons or groups belonging to the islamist sixteen of bosnia or else the governor could be a threat to germany and europe but in the same time the government in guys to speak about it financial transactions that are provided for example by the growth states or target of the bucket states as well as the sending of the mumps by the states in contrary to the german secret service is now fished the german government tries to hide the fact of growing danger coming from islam is that groups from the public.
there has been a blast from the past for britain's foreign secretary the scientists have discovered that bar is johnson or less is the distant relative of a well preserved centuries old mummy that was on earth in switzerland. there you go i'm always all the news for now i'll be back in thirty five minutes time with all the global news headlines from r t h q right here.
is america as it actually is a bomb over the fantasy is reality and he's doing what you'd expect a seasoned businessman to do cut all the nonsense out of the mix bring jobs back. prescribe medication is widespread on the u.s. market and a frequent cause of death at that point in my life. like everything was ashes my family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit suicide watch all who has made antidepressants so commonly used we were doing what the doctors told us to do we were being responsible and what the real side effects. was literally all to what i did was done on
a cocktail of legal drugs. just because something's legal doesn't mean it's same. when lawmakers manufactured them sentenced to public wealth. when the ruling closest to protect themselves. with the famous merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room six. million real new.
k k k. k. k. well welcome to sophie and co i'm so if each other not say this thread seems to have been dealt with in iraq. does that mean he's will finally come to the war torn country by my guest today as well as i am member of the iraqi parliament and former national security advisor to the iraqi government. as the last islamic state
fighters lead to the desert from the advancing iraqi forces that is jubilant in claiming victory over the deadly threat but it's bombs go off on the streets of a cop so it's clear we haven't seen the last of the terror group how dangerous is the backlash from isis when will it finally be subdued and what can the iraq do to make sure it never comes back. dr. yeah welcome to the show it's really great to have you on our program now iraqi prime minister all about a declared victory over islamic state in december but the u.n. says valid extremism can re-emerge the focus of an allow analysis was on islamic states former strongholds in northern iraq which require urgence debilitation you're a member of the iraqi parliament what is the situation is it really all over or all rosy brighter future and if so why is the u.n. fear mongering. well it depends how do you define victory.
if victories mean. military victory yes we have inflicted this. huge shit. defeat on isis in iraq and we got them driven out of iraq and the last three it took it took us there three years to drive them out of iraq but it. victory is not only military. the there is no security. the security need to be addressed in a more a broader. this is it the counterterrorism is an intelligence led war and we need to build up our intelligence agencies we need to built our human. intelligence our signal intelligence.
surveillance and and so on and so forth so we need to do that that to really declare security victory not only military victory and the threat to be quite honest with you the threat is not only military if that is not only security but as not to an economy right. the threat and the challenge is an ideological challenge. people are talking about political inclusion and so on and so forth but it is. an ideological challenge need to be addressed and it would take probably decades not years to declare victory on an ideological challenge of militancy of terrorism of right because not only ideologically but the iraqi soldiers are fighting i.a.s. and provinces that have been declared liberated for
a while there are spots near syrian borders that are under iraqi control at all now as claims to be behind regular bombs in iraq so is it too early to say that isis has been defeated militarily they may well be a search in that with the right in the right time if that is an intelligence gap if there is a security breach if there is a military if you like set back in the country or is it is the security him and political polarization comes buck if they come back then that will . provide the right circumstances that i can vitamins for the for isis to reemerge again iraqi governments previous mistakes let to sunni's turning to extremism many times before can we count on the iraqi government not to get it right this time with it so to citizens i don't think
honestly you can blame the iraqi government only probably some of the policies of the previous government and this government and the government before is even before. you can blend on these are these policies or these. might be blamed but i think it's all over simplification to blame one single factor. in all that my opinion of the union took that it's zero tolerance i am just sad that sectarian violence is something that actually can make us as strong again. that is what i mean well. i says it is as i said it's not a security phenomena is not a military phenomenon only as daughter of the group of people are this franchise or disenchanted economy clee all politically so you do some you inject some political
some some cash in the local economy of this province or that province and it will be sorted out or if you do political inclusion on some of the faction which he fears the marginalized and it will be sorted out no isis is global phenomena isis is an ideological challenge this is called salafism wahhabism jihadism you call it whatever you would you like to call it this is the one of the manifestation of this is in iraq called isis and then syria called out and in nigeria called book and in pakistan and afghanistan called taliban or al qaida or in south yemen for example is called something else and in somalia called out shabab so this is money to stay shipment of.
of the. behind it as jihadism is behind azim and these are physical manifestation of the same ideology i understand your point and i tend to agree with that but since i'm talking to you we can't talk about for the whole world so let's talk about what's going on iraq iraq a parliamentary committee saying that isis smuggled hundreds of millions of dollars when it retreated from the country moreover the terror group even invest directly into the iraq economy laundering its money and taking cuts from legitimate business profits. what i have to say about that why is the iraqi government allowing this to happen well i think the iraqi government needs to tighten the news and tighten this. screw on on the fund then on the financial. transfer from one bank to another they
need to apply a lot of international rules of the i.m.f. and world bank and and and the european union. how they have to apply this on the iraqi banking system and the iraqi financing see if and then ship financial system a to stop blackmailing for example that the ice is used to take a margin of all the government contracts given to the private sector and still some what some of the militias some of the mafia some of the of going to criminals are still using doing this see you hit you hit. a very important point terrorism seed. corruption and corruption feeds terrorism and this is a vicious circle that's why the fighting terrorism need to go hand in hand with
fighting corruption with the with fighting corruption well you've just hit it on the nose i'm sure you know this politician a mission algebra or e he's your colleague iraqi politician from the parliamentary anti-corruption committee now he says everyone in the government is corrupt even admitting to taking bricks in bribes himself how can the rocky government go after isis isis finances if they can all be so easily right. this is very unfortunate mom this is this is the really depressing i don't agree with the fun with it with the with what what was the with the gentleman you mentioned his name said the old iraqi government old a member of parliament are corrupt that is totally untrue i can tell you the there are so many as several members of parliament several of government officials who
are honest nationalist iraqi patriots and we are proud of them center of not just at several of them but then that makes a whole lot of other politicians who can be easily bribed right i can't deny that corruption is it has been institutionalized if you like in the in the ministries. there are several. ministers that are seven a corrupt member of parliament that are several government officials are corrupt. and the corruption is how does one tell as well as vertical and the government of iraq and the prime minister the need to declare. that the real fight to be a war against corruption and fighting corruption need to you need to have a strong political will well it's because it and it has wronged honest justice
system because trust airstrikes how's are going to happen because troops in airstrikes they can be defeated they can they to can defeat an enemy but co-option inefficiency is that is actually what makes the enemy reappear like you said right in either the americans nor the iranians can make sure iraq does a good job governing itself it has to take care of itself is a country doomed to see another uprising in the future with such an inefficient government or isn't miracle going to happen i mean when you say prime minister has to be strong. official start doing their jobs and stop stealing money what has to happen for that well i think there are things you need to provide to us. to find corruption one is a strong political will second this is strong leader. on the top of the government you need a very strong good honest legal system. and also executive
system. police and and army unfortunately that the corruption is it is widespread and you need to tackle this and with the government need to to do a lot of work to to do this. fighting a you need to also investigate of system you need we need to probably and how from the outside world as well because. a lot of our lot of ministries are politicized and indoctrinated a lot of our institutions are been politicized and belong to this party or other party so we need professional government professional ministers professional government officials. honest people and strong to it and there's this is a very good golden opportunity for the next gen.
