from some who are questioning her whole future as prime minister. hi good evening thanks for watching out international live with me kevin owen who stay with me for the next thirty minutes for this latest update this monday afternoon then first off donald trump's national security advisor as mentioned john bolton here in moscow for talks with russia's foreign minister his visit here to the russian capital comes after president trump announced he's going to be taking the u.s. out of that key nuclear arms treaty with russia while also vying to develop new weapons to a part of history that treaty was signed back in one thousand nine hundred seventy between the then soviet union and america under the agreement all short and mid range nuclear and conventional missiles were eliminated apart from those that could be launched from the sea without meeting just a couple of hours away now and taking down his r.t.c. goes down off with a late. this sergey lavrov russia's top diplomat is expected to meet john bolton
11:02 am
the national security adviser for the u.s. president donald trump but while the big debate is ongoing whether or not the american president is indeed making the right call. russia's top diplomat sergey lavrov at this morning's press conference here stressed that this could be indeed too early for any speculation have a lesson. in usual in regards to the u.s. position on the i.n.f. treaty i have yet to see the decision by the u.s. president i have only heard about his intentions as i have also seen some of the reactions to it that's been mixed some support others have urged the u.s. not to turn down the whole system of arms control both nuclear and conventional you but let's not speculate at this point as that would be counterproductive let's wait for official clarification if john bolton is ready to do so we are happy to hear it and we'll make our position clear based on
11:03 am
a clear statement that withdrawal procedure has so far not been activated russia's foreign minister has also stressed that moscow has been committed to the deal and has repeatedly called that it should stay in effect past its current twenty twenty one deadline but he also did add that if trump puts his money where it has been pouring from all over the globe the chinese have warned that trumps unilateral withdrawal from the deal will have indeed a multilateral effect and one thing to understand about this treaty is that critics view it as very one sided in favor of the united states just long story short is the russia's ability for quick military buildup impaired greatly under this treaty while washington's concessions well they're insignificant and that's why probably the former american ambassador to moscow has said that the biggest loser is if trump pulls out of the deal america's european allies and in. judging by what is
11:04 am
coming from europe well they feel threatened the french president of mineral necron has called the i.n.f. treaty key to european stability and he wasn't the only one the announcement by the us that is going to withdraw from the i.m.f. accord is regrettable the i.n.f. agreement has been an important pillar of our european security architecture for thirty years for us in europe it's of great importance we call on the us to consider the possible consequences so indeed right now the only thing to do is to look forward to this meeting between that sergey lavrov and john bolton and whether or not heard john bolton's hawkish stance will stand here in moscow you know let's rewind the clock back a bit here all three decades show in see how we reached this point. theory. the arms race is getting out of control. i'm with you we did not initiate this time of then you
11:05 am
know it was no we pulled out the antiballistic missile treaty russia has developed and developing stabilizing weapon systems for more than a decade in direct violation of its treaty obligations and look at each other we are in response to the threats that confronted us we're moving forward to modernize our nuclear arsenal and ensure their capabilities remain i'm just we will never allow anybody to have anything even close to what we have. it for american x. the agreement will give an immediate and reciprocal response. russia has violated the agreement they've been violating here for many years that i don't know why president obama didn't negotiate or pull out. and we're not going to let them violate the nuclear agreement they go out of their weapons that we're not allowed to we're the ones that have stayed in the agreement and we bonded to the agreement
11:06 am
but russia is not fortunately on to the agreement so we're going to terminate we're going to pull out. because for the very nature of this the people who would be on the end of short to medium range missiles from russia should that ever happen would be europe let's get the view from central european money brussels based politics expert thanks for being with us straightaway u.k. came out and said yeah we're with the a trump of germany said disastrous decision what do you think we'll get from europe out of this if trump does pull out of this i.n.f. treaty. good evening i think the program. position of europe. europe if united states two routes of treat i know if treaty is a again the tier outer of maneuver or under rivalry between the united states on russia and. if. this is
11:07 am
a treaty disappears and varies armament competition again between your russia and the united states of course europe would be most affected in case of a nuclear war like during the war or because of geography well russia has already said it would restore the balance of the word of the kremlin if this were to happen i mean trump said that obama should have done so about this couple of years ago both the u.s. and russia have been accusing each other of violating this treaty rather just ditch it and then come to the top shouldn't be doing the talks first before talking about ditching it shouldn't they be trying to attempt to resolve these real differences. it looks like again no negotiating tactic for mr trump. or who is putting pressure on his partners because before to negotiate but it can be or saw shining
11:08 am
a pretext for united states to develop a more nuclear sites of energies why because of your. job particular context ease. more intense competition and russia and china have been. sure isn't. strategy complete he tossed from the united states and who should potentially be here trying to barter out some new agreement if a new agreement is needed maybe that's the way forward should it be the u.n. should have been e.o.'s say eccentric who should it be. well the program is a moment the united states takes you need to run decisions and doesn't trust men to talk to our organizations so they once were by now to write d.c. we have also to see about. united states he's competing with china and china i know
11:09 am
this is not part of a deal and he's probably also in way to put pressure on china not to develop these weapons but also the program ease you need to sit doesn't take into account of a suspicion or joe rafique a position of russia because there are in different situations strategic situation united states is surrounded by a cease atlantic or pacific but russia is surrounded by it by use of our continent air power on your asian continent china pakistan iran and needs to develop its own. weapons systems in a different security environment so you cannot when vignetted states makes an equivalent of three of the same number of sites in us on russia it doesn't work like this anymore because we are not during recording or any more and as i said we
11:10 am
are in emergency put our ward where russia is in much more difficult environment in eurasia. emmanuelle film and to politics expert thank you for your thoughts from europe they appreciated it. donald trump's son in law an advisor jarrett cushnie said the white house is still in the fact finding phase as it looks into the murder of the saudi dissident journalist jamal khashoggi saudi arabia's foreign minister meantime says the outspoken columnist was killed by a rogue operation inside its culture that in istanbul and called it a tremendous mistake however washington isn't rushing forward with any repercussions for now at least within a culture of a brief you on the latest. after weeks of denying it saudi arabia confirms jamal khashoggi was murdered inside its consul eight and estimable individuals who did this to outside the scope of their authority obviously it was
11:11 am
a tremendous mistake made and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up that is unacceptable and to be government these things unfortunately happen we want to make sure that those who are responsible are punished they val's those responsible will be punished but will saudi arabia face anywhere precautions so do your abuse admission is a good first step but not enough it would be premature to comment on sanctions until we get further down the investigation doesn't look like it it's premature you might wonder why am murder a case of such as counting proportions isn't immediately punished remember this creep poisoning well here is the reaction that emerged just hours after the initial reports is highly likely that russia was responsible to the polls russia kopel culpable culpable for the attempted murder is kate is culpable quarrel is with putin's kremlin we think overwhelmingly likely that it was his decision and days
11:12 am
later the diplomatic fallout was at a level rarely seen before saying sions expulsion of russian diplomats and more sanctions should be received from time to time certain steps are being taken by the u.s. reserve the russia including sanctions on very contrived reasons without any evidence provided of russia allegedly using chemical weapons so there's no evidence what steps are being taken against russia and now we see a murder and it's you know steps are being taken we need to sort out our single approach to cases like these. in the little washington chimed in then so what's stopping them now. they are ordering military equipment everybody. in the world one of that order we got it and we are all of it every bit of it i don't like stopping massive amounts of money that's being poured into our country spending one hundred ten billion dollars on military what they. think is that create jobs like jobs and
11:13 am
others for this country while europe and even some american senators who believe arms sales and need to be stopped by some of firstly we're outraged by this case we made it clear secondly there is an urgent need for details and those responsible are still not being held accountable and thirdly i agree with all those who say that arms exports which are already limited must not take place in current circumstances and fourth point further reaction should be internationally coronated i feel certain that the crown prince was involved in it he directed this and that's why i think we cannot continue to have relations with him i would cut off arms sales it's the only thing the saudis will listen to but trump is adamant it's a big first step it's only a first step but it's a big first but i would prefer that we don't use retribution cancelling one hundred ten billion dollars worth of work which means six hundred thousand jobs the turkish
11:14 am
president to promise assume reveal all the ugly truth on tuesday. what we are looking for justice here and this will be revealed in all its naked truth not through some ordinary steps but in all its naked truth the question is will this finally be enough to trigger a reaction from the white house political analysts and commentators has sonali told me if so is responsible and gets away with it it sets a dangerous president. regardless of whether it's rogue on not clearly the or saudi arabia in turkey knew what was going on which by extension means that the government knew what was going on and the only reason that nothing's happening is. because saudi arabia is currently the darling of the united states administration more specifically the trumpet ministration the british government decided that it was russia that it done this attack on the script palace immediately the fingers of the world were pointing at russia over here there is actual evidence times were
11:15 am
livid and that was malice of forethought in the killing of the road or not broken there was malice and it was connected directly to the government and the problem is that this goes against humanity this goes against human rights and it's a very very bad precedent. among stories ahead something from friday in reaction to it washington's given comment on an air strike in syria friday has called damascus calling for an international investigation but latest on a much more coming up. i did the war planning for the principal force provider command in the united states military for four years i've worked on this region for years i do not understand this saudi arabia is the greatest state sponsor of terrorism in the world still today and yet we call here on that we lie when we say that we outright
11:16 am
blatantly lie when we say that and moreover we know we're lying. seemed wrong. but. just don't call. me. yet to stamp out this thing because that's ok and indeed equals betrayal. when something you find themselves worlds apart. just in the common ground.
11:17 am
again folks watching out international saw afternoon go but some have it on friday in reaction to it the pentagon is defending its air strike on a mosque in syria last friday say it was targeting islamic state militants inside reports say though dozens of civilians were killed in the attack india or province the syrian foreign ministry is now pushing for u.n. investigation into the u.s. led coalition's ongoing campaign in the country a long it's going to go on for eccentric cetera r.t. senior correspondent more goes the of has more on that. the massacres the united nations to get involved to investigate these u.s. led coalition airstrikes sixty odd civilians dead reportedly worth an investigation no which the pentagon is already preempting it wasn't their fault see that all these civilians died when they bombed the mosque it was isis is fault because the islamists went to a mask. such dire misuse of the mosque is another example of their violation of the
11:18 am
law of war and made the mosque a valid military target interesting reasoning by the same logic if isis fighters get treated the civilian hospital the us is well within its rights to level it but this sort of trigger happy attitude is costing hundreds of lives in july u.s. led coalition airstrikes on villages and did as sort of syria killed as many as fifty four people according to various human rights organizations dozens of them being women and children the pentagon men admitted that it may have carried out these airstrikes promised to investigate which they seem to do often nowadays you are some command is adamant it's as strikes clearly hit the intended target as a survivor pulled from the rubble after the powerful attack from the air syrians are describing it as a massacre according to syrian monitoring group activists and rescue workers in march two thousand and seventeen at least forty six people were killed in another
11:19 am
u.s. air strike on a mosque near aleppo during prayer time no less but it was packed with locals and fighters alike or if you go with the u.s. version they actually targeted a separate building fifteen meters away which doesn't make an awful lot of difference when it comes to the sort of bombs we're talking about if we could go on and on with these examples but regardless the u.s. mission in syria was to destroy isis a greater good mission accomplished the president said so the coalition to defeat isis has liberated very close to one hundred percent of the territory we've done a great job with those as we have just absolutely decimated isis so why strikes targeting isis as they say still killing scores of civilians why isn't the u.s. with. during from syria but rather occupying and fortifying vast tracts of the
11:20 am
country solidifying their influence and a number of reasons isis which they say is already defeated iran which they want to contain russia which they want to challenge or oil which they want to control and to for few civilians die along the way well that's just collateral. cross-like security political analyst thanks for your time looking on the from lebanon where you are. the u.s. coalition says it destroyed a mosque basically in one of the last i sh cues therefore fair game this collateral damage and this we've heard this so many times before and it really got nothing to apologize for it's just a part of war what you think about the. well. it's not the first time this collateral damage has become part of the discourse of the military discourse it has been the case in in iraq for so many years since since the
11:21 am
ninety's and it is going on and on in fact in the in the area this is this area outside sort of in. there has been there has been an attack on july thirteenth of this year where twenty eight civilians were slaughtered and this was recognized by column and ryan at that time now this time they're finding a justification they're trying to find a justification or some kind of you know they're saying that well you know isis were having a meeting as you were as your reporter just that they were having a beating inside the mosque that makes the mosque at the gym a target well that's not that's not really what international law is all about the international law is about protecting civilians in any way possible and in fact there's no there's no enough credible evidence to actually make sure that it is correct that there were terrorists inside that location this bombing took place on friday during the friday mosque and it is a holy day for muslims they were praying in the mosque it was
11:22 am
a bombarded and destroyed almost completely as we can see from the pictures another mosque nearby other than the man and not found mosque in in. was also was also destroyed on that same day on friday where you see the syrian army has been able to liberate the. area is a very strategic area it's an area rich in oil and it is in the border between iraq and syria. the syrian army was able to liberate large parts of the country of that area in december of last year and they're moving forward and that that i think pushes the americans and the kurds to actually be a frustrated because there they are seeing the syrian army moving forward and they will laugh to be put aside. because this is syrian territory i mean you can't bring in a foreign army under the pretext of fighting isis that occupies syria that is all interesting by any interest and it is
11:23 am
a measure it's because this is actually what's happening we've got these contradictions i was going to say we've got these contradictions on one hand we're hearing from president trump except for the yeah the battle against isis in syria is nearly one nearly one we're all the time and yet the u.s. operations keep expanding what's really going on or use a pretext interestingly. the main contradiction with mr trump is that if it's nearly one the syrian army deal with its sovereign territory and liberate the last parts of city where it isis is still still even ordering some pockets in the desert in areas such as the source. the area around it around there the sort i mean the this is an interference by the americans in order to gain more territory in order to have more pressure on the syrian government more pressure on this pressure on the leading to more divisions between the syrians more tension and allowing isis to get away with it i think that the american operations are on one
11:24 am
hand claiming to be fighting isis and on the other hand finding all kinds of you know maneuvers to let isis get away with it because the presence of eyes as they continued presence of these small pockets of isis can be used by the americans and their coalition forces their western coalition as a pretext to remain in syria and remain in in control of parts of the country where they can put pressure on the syrian government and that is actually what's happening they have failed in their ultimate plan and now there are acting in a way benefiting from the fact that media attention is elsewhere and bombing indiscriminately killing innocent civilians and thinking that they can get away with it or get it in government stepped in and asked for a probe and i think this probe should be for all actions done in syria throughout the fight from the beginning i want to show the security political analyst on the live from lebanon thank you. right track of us sadly the u.k. next u.k.
11:25 am
promise trees maybe not a good day verted day she said to give a major update on breaks it later this monday she's also expected to respond to very strong criticism from many m.p.'s in westminster have been questioning her whole future is pm it's really been put down as a crucial week for this it's not only those oppose. brix it rather go on a bit leave supporters move to some of them are teasers to suture a can it's got the latest indeed to mulch as times continue for british prime minister theresa may during what could be seen as the most crucial time off her prim premiership we have seen reports circulating for weeks now of a potential revolt brewing within the conservative party and speculation that she could be soon facing a no confidence vote has been running rampant all of this due to the huge dissatisfaction with the way to resign me according to those who stand against her has been handling the breadstick negotiations and we do know that for any such
11:26 am
a no confidence vote to be triggered forty eight letter sent by conservative party members need to be addressed on this matter to the conservative party chairman and again rumors here in westminster have been running high that those who want the prime minister to go are just several letters away from reaching that number. this week the reason why you will find the cheese drinking in the last chance saloon and the bad news for her is that the bar is already drawing she's fast running out of fruit if she cannot command the support of her cabinet her party upon them and more fundamental change will inevitably form i cannot continue to support an administration that cannot function well in what could be seen as very vigorous damage control we know of course that theresa may published in opec this weekend where she tried to convince the british people that everything is all right and that she's determined to get her promises delivered and we also know about later today she will be addressing the house of commons in attempts to calm some of those
11:27 am
anxieties we'll see how efficient that is going to be and last but not least we have to of course keep in mind that this weekend we saw hundreds of thousands of people spill this anger from sort of behind closed doors including politicians but onto the streets where all of those people had come out to protest and demand a second brags that referendum something that recent. he has made clear over and over again would not be happening but the big question right now it seems is whether or not theresa may is going to be really around very much longer to continue to be able to make those decisions on behalf of the british people while the latest battle is coming up in an hour or two will be across it let you know what happens that's why some of the world news stories looking for moscow so far this monday i'm kevin zero in thanks for watching international. tracking gave americans a lot of new job opportunities i needed to come up here to make some money i
11:28 am
could make twenty five thousand dollars as a teacher or i could make fifty thousand dollars a year truck so i chose to drive truck people rushed to a small town in north dakota was among the employment rate of zero percent like the gold rush is very very similar to a gold rush but this beautiful story ended with pollution and devastation a lot of people have left here i don't know too many people here and just slow down so much they lost their jobs got laid off the american dream is changing that's not what it used to be. and it's a tough reality to deal with. what politicians do so. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to go right to the
11:29 am
press it's like them before three of them or can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. this should. prosecution. need to become almost. equal where you pushed. the threat of fines somebody do i mean. political pressure on the. security industry knows what kind of business models used by american corporations. to use. their solution. as it is just somebody with deleting. an investigative documentary.
11:30 am
ghost war on oxy. following welcome to cross talk or all things considered i'm peter lavelle it's official now jamal khashoggi died in the saudi consulate in turkey on october second the person or persons responsible for his death is yet to be determined but one thing is certain this tragic story is far from old. cross talking some real.
