for me in the team here at r.t. h.q. in moscow and ten pm this tuesday night let's first bring you up to speed with what's been happening here over the past few hours the u.s. national security advisors been telling reporters in moscow that the united states is still going ahead with pulling out of a key nuclear treaty or playing down fears that it will spark an arms race earlier held a meeting with president putin but despite the tension surrounding the two countries right now they still managed to lighten the mood. as far as i remember there is an eagle on the us national emblem and there are thirteen arrows in one foot and an olive branch with thirteen olives as a symbol of peaceful policy in the other my question is did your eagle eat all the olives and leave just the arrows. i'm grateful for the opportunity to speak with you on behalf of president and hopefully i'll have some interest for you but i didn't bring any more although. that's what i thought. of the took eventually got
3:02 pm
down to the serious business at hand they even discussed the prospects of a new truck post in meeting in the coming months correspondent a course dollar for that john bolton's news briefing in moscow. well it certainly looks like the united states and russia did as much as they could to resolve their differences when it comes to the i.n.f. treaty and the course of the past couple of days in front john bolton came here to this media venue in central moscow not far from the kremlin just after a nine hour and a half long conversation with president putin and he revealed john bolton i mean revealed two main factors as to why the united states still looks to abandon the deal one he says that russia has already deployed in europe some missiles that a band under the deal and two with the united states see this treaty as outdated and he says that the deal should include other nations like for example china and
3:03 pm
also john bolton talks about the key difference between russia and the united states when it comes to the understanding of the agreement with respect to the question of russian compliance as i said it is the american position that russia's violation it is russia's position that they're not violated so one has to ask how do you convince the russians to come back into compliance with obligations they don't think they're violating well the way russia sees the situation is kind of vice versa mosco has accused washington of minor violations when it comes to the ion of treaty and has said that it is in turn abiding to withstand it also russia views of the deal as key to international stability addressing that john bolton combat the situation too when the united states pulled out of the antiballistic missile defense treaty back in two thousand and two back then he said that deal was due to us absolutely crucial to international stability but apparently when the
3:04 pm
united states abandoned it nothing happened also important to avoid some of the rhetoric of people who are comfortable with the treaty and what what it what the implications of us withdrawal could take a. way the cornerstone the entire construct of international stability collapses did was not true was not true then it will not be true now with withdraw from history and this is yet another point where russia and the united states just don't see eye to eye on since two thousand and one russia has been raising security concerns over challenges the world is facing because the united states once decided to abandon the a.m.d. treaty now with the deal in charm school says europe doesn't want any more escalation we've heard a lot of reaction coming out of the e.u. overwhelmingly speaking about how the i.n.f. treaty is key to the european stability and security so whatever happens next if europe doesn't want to be part of the united states and russia judy it out. earlier
3:05 pm
kevin i would heard from john laughlin of the think tank the institute of democracy and cooperation he thinks europe will find it tough to back washington over the treaty pull out. obviously america has the full spectrum dominance and trump has repeatedly said he wants to maintain that he wants to maintain a position in which no country can come even near even group of countries can come near challenging american power so i think there's a very clear line in terms foreign policy that he thinks that international relations are determined by force and the treaties come about when there is agreement but agreement comes about when there is a balance of power there is an argument for saying that america does not have an interest in withdrawing from this treaty because with the treaty it can prevent russia if what russia were to want to from deploying these intermediate range missiles it could be that america is shooting itself in the foot let's not forget that mccall and merkel are going to sochi next week to talk to mr putin and mr
3:06 pm
erdogan about syria this was unthinkable only a few months ago and the europeans do not like trump ism in foreign policy they prefer the world of multilateral treaties international agreements and so on. the turkish president says saudi dissident journalist jamal khashoggi was murdered in a vicious manner in a pre-planned operation because short he was killed in a saudi consulate in istanbul at the beginning of october riyadh denied any knowledge of the internet for more than two weeks when i got more details earlier from correspondent. most people thought that president aired on will shared light the details probably even groundbreaking details that could have been revealed by his investigators it is still a ball well he didn't instead his speech was more of a political message in which he basically made it clear that turkey skull voted that mr khashoggi death was
3:07 pm
a preplanned political murder. because the evidence that we have so far indicates that you mark. jews were slain in a vicious violent murder did all those responsible from the highest level to the lowest level who brought to justice and will get the punishment they deserve incident was not a momentary resource but rather of the result of a planned operation right to recal people who didn't see the whole thing you saw in the punishment the people who carried out this deserved are we any closer to knowing who he thinks who thinks the should go to you is behind it he mentioned the people erred towards saying you are responsible for this three people and they cause that. group of fifteen people were set from saudi arabia although mr aired fell short of directly blaming the saudi royal family for this. still though he was clearly eager to put pressure on saudi arabia he made an outright to
3:08 pm
bad to hold the perpetrators responsible for this and also came up with a list of direct questions for the saudi government who gave instructions to those people to come to istanbul why were the consulate premises not open to examination on that day or the following day we need an answer to this it's clear now it was a murder where is the body why do we still not have bit of information that the body was given to a local operative who is he it's not an ordinary person saudi arabia needs to reveal his identity so right now saudi arabia's earlier version that jamal khashoggi was killed as a result of some sort of brawl or a fist fight would really do after such comments made by mr of people picking up on this story before it all kicked off to a lot of people around the world the name jamal khashoggi was not particularly well known remind us who he is why all this trouble around him jamal khashoggi is

3:10 pm
so i just want to point out once again that's seven days passed since the actual murder happened tobar second before the saudi officials admit it happened within the walls of their called so much is going on it happened within the walls of their called so much is going on in the reaction has been around the world to this big story all i can tell you that the international community hasn't really been active in trying to hold saudi arabia to their accountability their reaction was pretty much vague cautious or slow even if you want but perhaps the most outstanding evolution of the assessment of what's going on was that of donald trump's let's have a look sounds like. terrible the disgusting about that if that were the case so we're going to have to see we're going to get
3:11 pm
to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment but here to be able to get to the bottom fairly serious about it have to be very severe have it bad fed. but we'll see what happens you consider very serious i do i do i mean it's again it's early we haven't for the shirley view or investigation but it's. i think it's a very important first step and it happened sooner than people thought it would happen. the ground for it i am not satisfied with what i well going back to president erred towards cheese day speech apparently this was not only a direct message to the saudi government but also to the international community to keep putting more pressure on saudi arabia so well be watching what the international leaders are going to do now and also the saudi officials as well of the saudi royal families met with the brother to express their condolences to

3:17 pm

russian interference in u.k. politics there has been no evidence to date any success through foreign interference well moreover the british government was not just underwhelmed when it came to the russia league ations but according to the committee they had actually outright accepted only three out of the dozens of recommendations that were made in this fifth interim report being presented by this committee and. it has to be said that one thing they did these two parties agree upon was the difference that the term think news has become redundant and really lost its meaning in this day and age nonetheless this committee is refusing to give up they are going to keep working on this topic and have said that they're planning to publish the final report on this issue towards the end of this year. new this hour at least thirty russian football fans have been crushed and injured in a row metro station local media say seven people are in critical condition and one
