3:01 pm
live from moscow this is r.t. news at ten with me kevin knowing well mark i'm sure you want to first in the program the russian foreign minister says that the u.k. is gone too far with its accusations over the poisoning of sergei scruple and his daughter on a venture he says have to provide answers anyway to the questions posed by russia here's some of what sergey lavrov had to say which correspondent dan oftener expanded on. that if you will not be possible to get away from the question since the obvious nods and what else is obvious british colleagues have can see fast with this game which the russian foreign minister has a focused in detail on everything going on in this cripple case first and foremost he said that he's very glad that the daughter of the russian citizen yulia is recovering and he's all. said that he hopes that her father on the mend to also he
3:02 pm
has stressed that russia still has a lot of questions that has asked repeatedly but which remain unanswered pretty much russia even wrote an official mail an official letter to the opi c.w. those questions include some technical details that russia has inquired to the c.w. asking them what information the u.k. has passed to the un nobody regarding the investigation because this is something that london is refusing to share with moscow and whether or not the o.p.c. w. in turn will be sharing that with russia russia's been asking these questions since day one since this horrible incident took place where does russia hope to get any answers to any of these quest while in fact russia is hoping to get some answers as early as this wednesday because this is when the o.p.c. w. members are meeting and this is a summit initiated by russia so this is why sergei lavrov hopes to get at least something out of the u.n.
3:03 pm
body on wednesday. in the beauty of our british colleagues to answer the questions you want it's a work of fiction and be more specific provocation and so in general the russian foreign minister has expressed concern about the bloc of countries who seem to have agreed to pin everything on moscow because in their opinion it seems it's not an investigation into who is behind the assassination attempt but more like russia did or did give a direct order to its agents to go and assassinate sergei scruple and his dog just lost track of the nerve the book on this for russia and in terms of the news coverage even though we're really no further forward weeks on from all this it's really not a line spending and spread line spending and spent five in this story and they're basically using their standard playbook like when you don't know what to say when the it seems that everything has slowed down significantly you bring sources. have
3:04 pm
a listen source briefed on the investigation tells c.n.n. they believe a move like that was too sophisticated for a rogue agent and likely needed kremlin approval so when you are citing a source it means that you have some inside information from the investigation and it's not clear why the c.n.n. needed exactly this in this particular situation because linking the kremlin directly to the assassination attempt is something that both reason made the prime minister and boris johnson the foreign secretary have been saying for a long time now so it's not exactly some classified information also another point that they're making is the attack was sophisticated and only a government could be behind it so. how come it is a sophisticated attack and if it is sophisticated it's supposed to be performed and carried out on a very professional level if it's professionals who are behind it and in this case it looks very sloppy because both targets are not just alive but the getting better
3:05 pm
they're recovering so russia is indeed intending to get its its questions answered into ending to get answers to its questions and so he's hoping to get those as early as wednesday we got the opinion of geopolitics author david swanson he says despite information being scarce the seems the media is already delivered its verdict well it's not a judicial procedure this is not something brought to arbitration this is not the world court this is an accusation through the media and so russia is not being told very much and the public is not being told very much and of course that makes many of us sceptical but we just can't know whether the accusations are true or not until we're shown some evidence. a number of western countries say the entire world is on their side now against russia. patience is wrong as they're
3:06 pm
wearing saying with president putin and his actions we stand with our british allies and the rest of the civilized world in denouncing the brazen and brutal chemical attack carried out against the united kingdom it has become clear that russia is behind this effort to kill innocent civilians with the banned nerve agent so let's take a look at the global backing on the map here that british and american officials say they have over the nerve agent attack in seoul the break that's how it pans out it seems many countries showing their support are they to members but even among them this still some uncertainty is there and again. both well i think they think of themselves as the world the international community which is always just a handful of nations that calls itself that but you know in the united states here we've become very used to baseless accusations against russia and so some of us are very skeptical regardless of the position taken by our governments we can't know whether an accusation is true or not until they show us some evidence and rather
3:07 pm
than showing us some evidence they're working on expelling diplomats and pressuring other countries to expel diplomats which seems like a way to cut off communications or you diplomats jobs are to interact when there are disagreements and if you get rid of them you're talking about not having communications other than by means of of military force. made worsening relations then between russia and the west it seems there could be a bit of good news on the horizon washington in the white house could host a meeting between the u.s. and russian presidents with more on the d.c. correspondents america on. well here are the latest details on last month's phone call between president putin and president trump now back on march twentieth donald trump called to congratulate president putin on his reelection this wolf was criticized by many in the american media according to the russian aide to president putin and the white house spokesperson
3:08 pm
a bilateral meeting was planned during the phone call but today we've learned that during that conversation trump invited president putin to visit washington d.c. but just as a reminder the phone call happened before the u.s. expelled sixteen russian diplomats over the poisoning of a russian expire with russia being blamed for it of course and then russia responded in a tit for tat measure announcing the expulsion of sixty eight u.s. diplomats but the kremlin says that no meeting preparations have been made at the time but according to president putin's aide the white house was discussed as one of the possible venue's so we'll just have to see how this all plays out indeed next tonight the evacuation of militants from the syrian city of duma in eastern guta is well underway according to the russian defense ministry earlier notes that a preliminary deal had been reached with the judge show islam rebel group which operates in the city over the last twenty four hours a thousand plus militants have left the last rebel stronghold in that besieged area
3:09 pm
jenna's mohammad ali who's in damascus told us the latest the only evacuation the first batch of is a shell it's not a minute insisted leaving the town of doom and eastern the buses are now lining up at the outskirts of eastern hutto picking up more militants are vicious them and their families it is expected that at least fifty buses will be exiting from. the final number is set on the outskirts of east on the water they will be heading towards northern syria the border town in the northern country sort of a look this will be the first batch following of course reaching that deal. brokered by russia between the syrian army and this particular militant group according to reports coming from inside duma there is a kind of division among the group leaders of this militant group on getting out or not but eventually it seems that the deal has been reached and they have started getting out in the boonies resistance movement has been low on its social media
3:10 pm
accounts published some of the items of this deal the. militants will have to surrender their heavy and medium weapons to the syrian army before leaving they can only take with them at their individual light questions like clash and of course or something also very important item in the deal is regarding the fate of thousands of both the civilians and army personnel kidnapped by dishes down there in the past five or six years believe those are believed to be believed to be inside the prisons official stamp particularly and to a prison inside duma according to that report the deal stipulates that there will be a work team formed and it will be headed by russia and included there will be representatives of the syrian government and also representatives of states which are guarantors and the estimate talks meaning iran and turkey on supervising the process of the release of those kidnapped civilians and army personnel.
3:11 pm
in. israel has reached an agreement with the un refugee agency. more than sixteen thousand african migrants to western countries the previous blown through to the sofa countries back in africa again flown dude. it's a unique agreement with the state of israel which removes sixteen thousand two hundred fifty people out of the zero two developed countries such as canada germany
3:12 pm
and italy. now this comes after under the radar talks that was altered in a new plan being put forward their plan was put together by the israeli government the united nations high commissioner for refugees and other interested parties it scraps a previous plan that the israeli government was planning to carry out and that would have seen refugees in this country been presented with one of two options on the one hand they would have to agree to be deported to a third african country there was a sweetener of three thousand five hundred dollars per refugee as well as a plane ticket but however if they refuse that they would then have to face the option of prison now that plan was was refuted by human rights groups by thousands of israelis who for the past few months have been taking to the streets to protest against it netanyahu nassi that their plan is no longer feasible because of legal constraints and political difficulties what we understand now moving forward is
3:13 pm
that it will be the responsibility of the united nations human rights commissioner to find homes and look after these refugees who are being seemed to western countries and in addition another eighteen thousand will remain illegally inside this country now germany and italy are both countries that are already favorite destination is for refugees if you look at the figures from last year for example germany registered more than one hundred eighty six thousand refugees and italy in the same time period saw one hundred twenty thousand refugees arriving on its shores via boat so those are countries that already are facing the problems of refugees and now they have the additional refugee. numbers that are being sent to them from israel so no doubt they will have more responsibility and more challenges moving forward and fall asleep or middle east coast one of there was a twist of this tonight meantime the italian foreign ministry now saying tonight that italy hasn't received any kind of request regarding migrants going to stress
3:14 pm
the deal is strictly therefore between israel and the un's refugee agency which is rather puzzling you might think at first glance let's bring in frank christian hansol from the here party in germany hey there thanks for your time so again this news only come in the last couple of hours it seems this deal has been between israel and the u.n. refugee agency but one of the parties involved here italy says no it officially hasn't been told about this i wonder where you are germany's also mentioned you think germany's officially been asked to go along with this is well i'm not. as i was informed and i have informed myself rather for sort of before this there was no official asking from israel and no actually they don't know about this resettlement program with israel so this is for the moment what i think is true for germany as well yeah so what is the un doing here what is israel actually doing here is the mortar behind the scenes is just some huge admin error what. well probably and probably it's
3:15 pm
a way for netanyahu to quit to cool down the problem in his in this own country but i think we have to understand we have a global migration crisis it's not about asylum we see that individual asylum is another thing where whole groups of populations are concerned as is the migration crisis due to failed states and two failed economic policies and two failed economic development especially in africa and this big challenge has to be answered by other means it cannot be that refugee migrants go to other countries and hundred thousand of sons or like expected to be in the next eight nine years about five six hundred millions africans we have to find. another policy regarding to solve those problems with regard israel there are about thirty nine thousand migrants who are initially being mentioned here and israel's going to keep half of them under this proposal is just been saying is planning through the u.n.
3:16 pm
refugee agency to send the other sixteen thousand or so on to maybe germany maybe it's still to be confirmed by the sounds of it tonight so israel is doing its part here is it not keeping at least sixteen thousand of these people that often come from awful backgrounds and awful lives. yeah maybe this is true but i think it's more important for the western countries to to stop the magnetism or to the refugee welcome attitude we have in some parts of the west especially in germany this will not work actually we do have to find another development strategy for for africa and other parts of the world like them in a region but in order to to let them go to another country into redistribute or to resettle them cannot work on the long run because western nations will not be able to cope with was all of them and this is not some policy we have to go forward in order not to collapse because we have social welfare states and they will they will
3:17 pm
not be financially stable if this goes on and on and on this cannot be a strategy year where would you begin how do you begin tag tackling this back at the source well one is the proposal which if the for instance made that we would that we try to put migration centers in the main or north african margaret region and also not only to. for later for resettlement for europe but to make them give them education and a stable security so that they can play have basic education in order to go back to their countries and cope with the real feasible development strategy which has which parallel has to be worked out and that sounds great but the key is there feasible i suppose it is a pile in the sky or is it really achievable considering some of the ructions going on in many of these countries these people are fleeing from. well i think you have
3:18 pm
to have you have to develop this tragedy first we know that property ownership rights are very important then you need a loss in the justice system where you can penetrate or force enforce the law and you need personal liberty and freedom these are the three elements that made civilization in the west great and triumph and it's a very interesting book from hernando de soto and why capital triumphed in the west in the wales and it's especially about ownership rights and we have to change the development strategy for for those parts where there is corruption there is corrupted the lights and there is no ownership rights and there is clans who manage the countries and family so many of the countries this may not go on and we should also not grant development aid as we did it for the last thirty forty years because this does not come to the people who need it for i will leave it there from christian herself from the party germany thanks for a bit of a program welcome to the. next story is focusing on israel again to the country
3:19 pm
for how its military is handling ongoing protests at the gaza border the so-called palestinian march of return has already left seventeen dead more than a thousand injured over the course of the last three days.
3:20 pm
different. people demonstrating immodestly all. want to try to kill. the manual march of return as a demonstration denouncing what palestinians view as israeli occupation thousands of them have pitched tents across five locations along the gaza border whether expected stay for the coming weeks as well world leaders have condemned israel's actions but they were accused of double standards in return by the israeli prime minister as daniel hawkins reports next. this isn't the first incident of mass palestinian casualties in clashes with the i.d.f. tragically it won't be the last the border violence had barely stopped before the criticism of israel's actions came thick and fast from all directions the u.n.
3:21 pm
secretary general was quick to call for a full investigation he used foreign affairs chief wasn't far behind israel though is having none of it the army was doing its job if anything the soldiers that fired live bullets into the crowd deserve a medal according to the country's defense minister and investigation no child ignore the murder of hundreds of thousands of civilians in the middle east but when is room neutralized these sixteen terrorists they convene an emergency meeting of the un security council the i.d.f. will not cooperate with any investigative committee let them investigate the murders of half a million people in syria and tens of thousands in libya sudan and yemen no punches pulled and some may say he does have a point multiple e.u. states have taken part in nato or u.s. led interventions in libya and syria which have contributed to civilian losses and of course they also continue to arm saudi arabia that's the spike the catastrophic
3:22 pm
situation in yemen but some world leaders return the focus to friday's brutal violence on the gaza border with president added one branding it an inhumane attack and prime minister netanyahu didn't let this go on answered the most moral army in the world will not be lectured by those who had indiscriminately bomb civilian populations for years apparently this is how april fool's day celebrated an anchor on a thinly veiled reference to turkey's tough line on kurdish groups who are unable terrorists or perhaps the turkey's ongoing military operations in northern syria triggering a further response from the turkish president. hey netanyahu you're an occupier and it is as an occupier that you are on those lands at the same time you're a terrorist and the e.u. itself wasn't exempt from the turkish president's rhetoric don't throw stones from a glass house. one month terrorist is another man's freedom fighter is an older dog
3:23 pm
but today it seems human life has become less valuable than political expediency or a good sound bite the head off a break protest is about to force in germany to show their support for the former leader of spain's separatist cup lonia region well not ahead it's. like when you have no clean water no health care no infrastructure those are all symptoms of a greater problem in haiti and that problem is imperialism that problem is debt dependency and domination that haiti has had to deal with since it became the first . free republic to rule by black people since eighteen zero four. apply to many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't

3:25 pm

3:26 pm
this really what we don't like if we want political actors in the. criminal law at least. due to a goal which is very rigid there should be a different way than criminalization of the. real solution. to it. the world's two largest economies china and the us appear to be on the brink of a new trade war tonight after beijing increased terror of some more than one hundred american products the measures are in direct response to an american increase on imported steel and last month the charges target american food products known response including pork wine and fruit tariffs are expected to increase by twenty five percent to be worth three billion dollars a year now to beijing the unstable trade relations of investors rightly worried as u.s. stocks dipped after reopening from the easter holidays but despite all the tension on the less donald trump still sees china as
