12:01 pm
the ability. and staying with big politics and energy president. needs to take a look in the mirror to find out who's responsible for rising oil prices. straight to the point on other questions as well. thanks for joining us here live on r.t. international seven pm in moscow welcome to the program i always thought with that development from america in the last hour secretary of state. has confirmed the u.s. is pulling out of the so-called friendship treaty with iran that struck back in one nine hundred fifty five the move comes after the un's highest court ordered washington to lift some of its sanctions on tehran. i'm announcing that the united states is terminating the nine hundred fifty five treaty of amity with iran this is
12:02 pm
a decision frankly that is thirty nine years overdue. enjoy iran brought a case in the international court of justice alleging violations of the treaty of amity. iran seeks to challenge the united states decision to cease participation in the iran nuclear deal and to reimpose the sensors that were lifted as part of that deal our correspondent will have an update for you later this hour on that u.s. iran sanctions battle as well as america's problematic relations with international bodies. and the u.k.'s conservative party conference has wrapped up in the city of birmingham and despite speeches of unity the prime minister's position is under further scrutiny from our own party just moments before to resume a was you to give a closing speech she was dealt yet another blow with a letter of no confidence that hasn't apparently dampened spirits the.
12:03 pm
the reason why small victories you can see as she approached the podium. to be the prime minister responding to those who mocked her daughter's move so what i'm tall and africa back in august going to the store. certainly curious political times here in the u.k. as we speak and this annual conservative party conference has wrapped up to quite a bit of drama despite british prime minister theresa may putting up a show of keeping up appearances including with that quirky dance to dancing queen despite a speech that was really seen as make or break for her because of course much of the speech was dedicated to theresa may trying to show that she has things under control especially when it comes to brag that having essentially now standing at
12:04 pm
a point of a potential no deal brags that having so know lots of division inside the u.k. and of course essentially having created basically a civil war inside her own country may was trying to show that she can still fix things however before her speech she was dealt quite a shock blow when a letter of no confidence has been sent by a tory m.p. going public with him essentially calling for her to go let's see what that letter said. there comes a point the wind world is not the right way forward we need a strong leader someone who believes and brags that and someone to deliver will the electorate voted for the prime minister seems incapable of doing this well fifteen percent of tory m.p.'s or forty people would have to send in similar letters for any such thing to be considered however this still of course added fuel to the fire especially given that earlier we saw a reserve maize our former defiant foreign secretary boris johnson take to the
12:05 pm
stage as well and essentially trashing her approach to bracks said amidst standing ovations and earlier in september a leaked tory party memo had suggested that theresa may would be forced to step down as soon as may twenty ninth and even provided a list of possible contenders so what with all of this discontent going on inside her own party at these uncertain times about how things will move forward there's a big question of whether or not it's really the time for humorous dances during a speech promised them a stress she will see so-called checkers plan on the bricks it should slam the idea of a second referendum she also outlined a new strategy for battling cancer and set a fuel duty for use will be part of the government's new budget we heard earlier from gerard. for the u.k. independence party he says three's amaze words don't necessarily mean action or
12:06 pm
listen to the speech today. and it's what she does best really which is a lot of rhetoric find words which don't really amount to anything certainly don't translate into actions i think she's going to carry on on the same course which is to in effect completely ineffectually negotiate with the she was a remainer up until the day of the referendum and then after the referendum she gets interested with the most important job of british politics you know for the last two generation. which is to get us out of the use the word why would you believe anything she says you can only judge your own results and so far they haven't been any result she talks about seeking respect from the e.u. that's the other thing well why would they respect you if you're not actually telling them what it is that you intend to do and you keep on asking how do we leave can we have this can we have a little bit respect somebody like that. donald trump has hinted that the saudi monarch won't last few weeks if it wasn't for the u.s. military the u.s.
12:07 pm
president made that fiery assessment at a campaign rally in the u.s. state of mississippi he won't give any specifics though about a conversation he had with the saudi king which she referenced in his speech. we project saudi arabia would you say the rich. and i love the king king solomon but i said. we're protecting you you might not be there for two weeks without us you have to pay for your village and well it seems like he's implicitly calling on saudi arabia to pay its own defense expenses and this isn't even the first time he's done this he's asked the same of japan and south korea both of which are nato allies but between the arms deals and pulling out of the iran deal it's clear that the u.s. considers saudi arabia a major ally and if you remember trying to first foreign trip was to saudi arabia about a year ago but now trumps latest comments show that there could be some growing contention between the two on top of that trump's been trying to get saudi arabia one of the leading opec countries and the rest of opec to lower gas prices and
12:08 pm
trump's no fan of opec and he made that pretty clear at the u.n. let's quickly check out what he had to say opec. and opec nations are as usual ripping off the rest of the world we defended many of these nations for nothing. and then they take advantage of us by giving us high oil prices not good but some have said that this is trump's way of securing his party's control in congress rather than out of genuine concern over gas prices now his intentions have not been yet made clear but i wouldn't hold my breath. trumps onto his thing and it's possible influence on oil prices it's a topic president vladimir putin's been addressing this wednesday speaking at a major energy forum in moscow he suggests that in no uncertain terms that the american president scott no one but himself to blame for the recent spike in oil prices it was a good we had a very nice meeting with the american president in helsinki if we had touched on
12:09 pm
the subject of oil price and influence that i would have told him if you want to find the main culprit for the oil price hike don't you just have to tell. look in the mirror to which it's true geo politics do play a role in oil price hikes so that's a fact well you just heard some direct comments that the president made earlier today but the global energy market or who is to blame for the current high oil prices or not the only issue is three you president was asked to comment on he also gave quite a strong a remark on the script all case the president lambasted the former double agent as traitor and also added that the whole case has been blown out of proportion i was saying that the sooner the media noise around the screwball case and the better stuff to say something regarding the script our case this spy scandal is being off sufficiently kindled i've seen some media outlets go as far as calling mr script
12:10 pm
probably human rights activist in france he's just a spy a traitor. he's scum that's all really is and the whole information campaign has been launched surrounding this case i think it will come to an end one day and i hope so and the sooner the better change him. while the russian president has been on the move this wednesday after attending an international forum in moscow he is expected here in st petersburg to hold talks with the austrian chancellor it's going to be their fourth a meeting in a year both leaders are expected to take your points are pressing international issues including again the our global energy market the situation in syria so we'll see what comes out of this meeting. when a historic move north and south korean soldiers have begun removing land mines from the demilitarized zone which is separated the two nations for more than half a century the buffer zone separating north and south runs for nearly two hundred fifty kilometers was created all the way back in nineteen fifty three at the end of
12:11 pm
the korean war it's believed these are some of the first pictures of the operation in action around two million mines are thought to be scattered there between the border fence is there guarded by hundreds of thousands of troops the agreement to clear the mines and destroy god was made last month of the two leaders met in pyongyang during that summit agreed to demolish its nuclear facilities and test sites as well as accept international inspections careers also agreed to eliminate so-called war dangers and set up a piece on the shared border where the leaders also pledged to connect railways and roads between the two countries as well as help families divided by the war to meet once again another aim was to make a joint bid for the twenty thirty two summer olympic games. horn's silicon valley is home to progressive employers like tech giants apple
12:12 pm
alphabets and facebook now everyone in the u.s. state will have to keep in step as well it's been made a legal requirement for at least one woman to sit on the board of directors in every company the law says that must happen by the end of twenty nineteen that number has to increase to three in the coming years of firms could face fines of up to one hundred thousand dollars or even more if they don't comply with the new regulation a long awaited for many the bill has provoked concern among others these states chamber of commerce has said it will prioritize gender over other aspects of diversity. chris discrimination now against other people in favor of women who might not even be qualified i mean you're talking about putting one woman in place there and now we're having to mandate that where there are many women in the workplace that have been working hard so rather than hoping for encouraging in the workplace or to be equal treatment of women who do a good job now we're just regulating the mandating it which is undoubtedly going to cause anarchy in the workplace is going to cause dissension among people perhaps
12:13 pm
amongst other women who have been working hard wondering why this woman got chosen just to meet a certain quota i think it's absolutely ridiculous to suggest that there is not a single woman qualified for the board of any public company in california i think we all know them and loads of women who are super well qualified in the question should be why haven't they been appointed to those schools already why have we put up with this. white male boys' club for so so loam i think there are lots of people on boards in california and all over the world you want qualified and i'm afraid to say the vast majority of them all men it only causes tension to grow against women against the very party that they're trying to eliminate discrimination over and so that's going to end out only cause backfiring a lot more animosity against women not just from other men in the workplace who have been working very hard but from other women in the workplace who might not be chosen to fit this one woman quota type thing for women who aren't going to be
12:14 pm
doing that and so you know it's causing dissension it's really going against it and it's going to continue to backfire against that until we change who we are intrinsically as americans in the workplace allowing equal rights because there are deserving of it and not because a lot mandates absolutely california should and will in the back of the success of this legislation for the legislation that mandates that there be a person of color on board and then to put people of color and so on and so forth i think that's absolutely not conflicting issues it shouldn't be the case that women and people of color who incidentally many women are also people of color but we shouldn't feel like there's a sort of diversity. spot and we all have to fight for it we should feel like we're all part of a movement that's working towards better balance on boards and working towards a future which actually built web companies like this belong to all of us not a tiny you know pie on my island stale corporate elite which i'm fortunate seems to be a sort of you know a cop which no one can break at the moment or get back to our top story of the united states confirming its withdrawal from its friendship treaty with the wrong
12:15 pm
just after this for a short break two states you. america is a house deeply divided and that division only continues the entire brett kavanaugh saga has turned into blood sport to many each and every one of us pick a side we're in new territory and that place is called winner takes all. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth you want to be ultra rich eight point six percent markets thirty percent just last year some with four hundred to five
12:16 pm
hundred three per second per second and going rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars ai industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need remember one one doesn't show you can't afford to miss the one and only. two out internationally as promised there let's go straight back to our top story this hour that the u.s. secretary of state mark pompei without saying washington is scrapping its nine hundred fifty five friendship treaty with terror on the un's highest court ruled that america has to lift some of its iran sanctions let's get the latest from charlotte charlotte this is a new low of course for us iran relations how significant do you think this is.
12:17 pm
well it's pretty significant given that you think that almost every day we hear something new about tensions between iran and the usa and this treaty has been in place for more than sixty years and despite the tensions that we've had over the last few decades that treaty has remained in place now we're hearing from the secretary of state from the u.s. that they going to scrap that treaty which was formed all the way back in one thousand nine hundred fifty five let's take a listen to exactly what mike palm player said in reaction to that ruling by the international court of justice today that the u.s. eight must lift some of its sanctions on iran. iran six to challenge the united states decision to cease participation in the iran nuclear deal and to reimpose the sanctions that were lifted as a part of that deal or as a term to interfere with the sovereign rights of the united states to take a lawful actions necessary to protect our national security. and iran is abusing
12:18 pm
that i suggest for political and propaganda purposes. we also heard some very strong words from the u.s. ambassador to the netherlands they were course the i.c.j. is stationed in the hague he described the court case brought by iran in july of this year is being meritless and he also said that the international court of justice didn't have jurisdiction over this particular case now we know it's not the first time that united states is had tensions and poor relations with international denies asians and with international courts back in june of this year it actually withdrew from the u.n. human rights council describing it is being a cesspool of political bias in september suggest a month ago trump slammed the international criminal court this was over the possibility that cases could be brought against americans who are alleged of committing war crimes in afghanistan and now we have this flat refusal to
12:19 pm
acknowledge that that ruling by the i.c.j. well going back to what trump said just a few weeks ago in september about the international criminal court he actually was angry threatened and attacked it take a listen to what he said at the time. as far as america is concerned the i.c.c. has no jurisdiction no legitimacy and no authority. the i.c.c. playing near universal jurisdiction over the citizens of every country. violating all principles of justice fairness and due process. well let's take a look at now today that ruling by the i.c.j. they stated that the usa must remove some of the sanctions that are imposed in may this year this is the same time that the usa withdrew from the iranian nuclear accord it said that those sanctions that much lift include allow. such as medical
12:20 pm
aid medicines into the company the country as well as spare parts and other things relating to the civil aviation authority so so airplanes except it also said that it had violated that treaty which might pompei is said will now essentially be scrapped that treaty that's lasted since one thousand nine hundred fifty five we've heard from toronto or on obviously welcome this judgement today by the i.c.j. it looks like the usa is flatly going to ignore that judgment again saying it has no jurisdiction over this right iran suggests that the i.c.j. is right saying that the sanctions by the us are cruel and illegal but the reality is we know that the usa has been preparing for some time a new round of sanctions on iran which would do to be announced next month it looks like those will still go ahead and the question now many will be asking is who is able to keep the u.s. in check it seems that the international court of justice simply can't sure does
12:21 pm
seem that way and seems that new lows in the u.s. iran relations are likely to take place very soon saw that dubious cue there from paris with the latest on that court ruling. well first that was the presidential election and that alleged assault on the u.s. democracy now russian trolls are up to something even more sinister they've had to galaxy not so far away in fact apparently targeting hollywood star wars franchise or to use it a trunk o. picks up a story. hey america they stole your election hey britain they stole your dream of a united europe democracy will never be the same because of russian memes thralls boughts well surely there is something still sacred in western culture are off limits to the russians.
12:22 pm
oh no the kremlin folks even got their hands on star wars russian trolls weaponized star wars criticism as an instrument for information warfare with the purpose of pushing for political change this was from a real study by a brave jet i call or i mean who claims there's been a force that was fighting to make the last jet i fail wow thirty seven pages remember how the movie got booed at when those need fans couldn't forgive the director for spoiler alert killing luke skywalker and forgive him for going against all the tropes so dearly cherished by the fandom remember how the star wars lovers army even campaign to fund a remake well now you know who did it the sitz sorry the russians had
12:23 pm
a great disturbance in the force as if millions of voices suddenly cried out into something besides just to prove it the guy behind the research analyzed almost a thousand on line messages for the director and his result was more than half of the hate tweets came from trolls some of them were russian. the director didn't just pay attention he shared the link to the study with his twitter followers. looking forward to reading it but what the top line describes is consistent with my experience online well some vendors got even more disgruntled when they said they found their own tweets in the research it was a bad movie highly unlikely that it was a dry run for bots to practice we hated this film too loved rogue one but were totally underwhelmed by the last gen don so much so that my oldest questioned if it
12:24 pm
is worth going to the cinema to see any more disney star wars so it did nothing to make me change my mind. mark a very disturbing it wasn't disney not even the director it was the damn room. that's it from the team and myself join us again eight pm moscow time for the latest global news update. don't accept the sort of just a little dust on the right to be a little bit it's. lucy . tells him like.

12:27 pm
states' rights republicans a pop electic over california's recent decision to take on the federal communications commission in the federal government by passing a law enforcing net neutrality within the golden state's borders you see net neutrality essentially bars internet service providers from blocking or throttling traffic or offering paid bassed lanes also known as paid prioritize asian and gutting these regulations has been the feather in the cap of f.c.c. chairman and former of rising lawyer. since being appointed by u.s. president donald trump and he would have he would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling californians as well as toys to other states in the union mandate coalition of big tech companies all fighting to reinstate the neutrality rules that apply neutered in a three to two party line vote back in december of two thousand and seventeen but just as things were were looking bleak for. with california's new net neutrality regulations set to take effect in january first and our good old buddy jeff
12:28 pm
sessions in the u.s. the justice department to this week brought a lawsuit against the state of california seeking a preliminary injunction to block california's state net neutrality law from taking effect and while all this partisan bickering and lawsuits clog our airwaves another news story quietly blew under the cable news radar that i think should be raising a few alarm bells you see the new york times reporting that according to the federal government accountability office just three years after discovering that a military laboratory had shipped live anthrax to pursue all these around the world the department of defense still has not developed a plan to a ballet you eight its biological security practices. lovely because you know nothing like a little net neutrality with a dash of anthrax as we kick off today's edition watchable x. . forty. three that looks like real with this one. as it were the plot of.
12:29 pm
