u.k. trees are booed in parliament and she postponed choose days planned crucial commons vote she admitted she'd faced a major defeat as m.p.'s lined up to condemn both the delay and hope. this government and the prime minister field it's time because of the weak prime minister members across this house don't want your deal does she not realize how can you take and when articulates this make you. also in the news tonight for an hour to international an alleged russian spy request no to change her plea in the us after initially insisting she's not guilty here is expected within days we're going to try and work out what if maybe she's got to say now what this change of plea is going to mean for some of the stories coming up.
we're going to have the money was kevin owen here at the news h.q. in moscow is just as they turned eleven a one of the evening so the top story tonight the french president suffering an olive branch to an angry nation to try and draw a line on the weeks of violence from the so-called yellow verse protests within the past he's been on national t.v. promising tax concessions and a minimum wage rise in his first public address since the rest but he went on to acknowledge the country is not out of the woods yet he said. littered your false economy i'm declaring a state of economic and social emergency today i want to start a front where our children will live better than we have you must go live to paris of france across polish. well we expected to say something this kind of was expected or was it not i don't know if the fair bit of capitulating over the last few days first up. but don't see the make any difference to what you witnessed this week and no further tax and wage incentives do you think is going to do the trick
what do you think. well it's very hard to tell what is clear though is the president gave that speech that address to the nation on monday evening and it was incredibly humble in terms of its tone he was very slow as he spoke he gave examples of stories that he heard and wanted the nation to know that he had been listening to them and while he said that they were legitimate concerns being raised in the protesters had a right to raise those he said that people had no right to sort of violence that we've seen over the past few weeks he also warned that france was facing an economic and social crisis.
well some of the concessions that he could as part of that speech on monday included an increase in the minimum wage chain france by one hundred euros a month that will take place from january as of this just in a couple of weeks he also talks about the fact that people who work overtime shouldn't be too tax on not overtime and they shouldn't be charged for social contributions he also announced that pensioners who were having less than two thousand euros a month would also not see higher social charges that had been previously announced and he also improved would employees to give their employer employers to give their employees of bonus at the end of the year and said that they would be a national debate now many people will be wondering why it took president back on so long to speak to the nation of course we have seen full weekends of violent
. well one thing that may down well with the people who've been out on the streets and protesting over the last few weeks is the fact that my call actually refused to grow back on the changes that were made to the wealth tax in france this is what he had to say. a model that he didn't want someone to go back on the wealth tax this has been around for forty years it just caused people to leave our country we can't go back we won't we need to create jobs.
with this speech by a president might call has been long awaited many protesters have been calling for the last few weeks of the president to address the nation and many people suggesting that this thirty minute speech tonight was forms of will it be mark or is moment of truth will it be enough to stop people going out and the streets to continue to protest really quell the disquiet at the social problems in france well that remains to be seen cautious but such a lot going on there. as a sense of us has been really nasty on the streets or as well as the public of vented their firy or so certainly a selection of a well i think is so wrong in our country right now or thanks for covering it for a starting from scratch polish on the do by. the british prime minister's put chooses crucial parliamentary vote on a much maligned plan on still there were votes going to happen for now anyway theresa may was confronted by anger on all sides in
a packed house of commons earlier assured method that m.p. said too many concerns for her e.u. divorce deal to get enough backing and. doest this house wants to deliver bricks it. if she doesn't take on board the fundamental changes required then she must make way for those who can the biggest on certainty for british business lies not in this field but on the front bench of the labor. prime minister members across this house don't want your deal does she not realize how chaotic and when articulates this make you know you hear what she's doing today. i mean she's for eight. years so it's a reason may that addressing a very fractious house of commons confirming that vote has been delayed it must of been humiliating for have to concede that her deal that she'd been talking on said
it would be a vote straight down and that she will now go to brussels in an attempt to renegotiate certain elements of the deal is she actually calls that to seek assurances over the contentious issue of the irish back start in the future of the irish or they take a listen to what she had to say i've listened very carefully to what has been said in this chamber and. from listening to those views it is clear that while there is broad support for many of the key aspects of the deal i. yes on one issue on one issue the northern backstop that remains widespread and deep concern and we will therefore defer the coach for tomorrow. and not to proceed to divide the house at this time to challenge. it on as the result of the referendum it's pretty doest
this house wants to deliver bricks it. i. hear a clear message from the s.n.p. but. does it want to do so through reaching an agreement with the e.u. be honest that this risks dividing the country again. time wise to resume a says that she wants to go and visit e.u. leaders on the european commission before this week's e.u. summit but still not clear specifically when that's going to be but she wants to discuss changes and address and peace concerns but we have a date for every new devote for when this vote will now take place and that is a great source of anger among politicians in the chamber many of them with
desperate to finally have the say on this rather chaotic gregg's that process make claims that she's listened to her critics into the case that people have and that she's going to do everything she can to seek assurances from the e.u. over the issue of the irish stop well a lot of people would say that she didn't lesson that she should have those in her own party will say she should have pressed by in this vote on this say that this wasn't a deal that they wanted a whole and that's what the leader of the labor opposition party jeremy corbyn had to say the government is in disarray. is building for business people are in despair at this stage of these failed negotiations the prime minister is trying to buy herself one last chance to save this deal if she doesn't take on board the fundamental changes required then she must make way for those who can
m.p. after m.p. after two reason my statement lined up desperate to get in that ostensibly that questions to the prime minister but really indignant. criticisms of how she has handled this negotiation process as of yet no date for the vote the prime minister planning to tweak or not renegotiate but seek a sure it says on some elements of the deal which cost the m.p.'s in the chamber have already dismissed as not good enough and a deal that brussels has already said that it's going to refuse to renegotiate a corresponding with a teen in britain meantime a spokesman for broadcaster and former m.p. george galloway who says trees may's days is premier could indeed be numbered this is not bricks that she's proposing and therefore a good one hundred of our own m.p.'s will never vote for whatever reassurances she brings but it's a bit it's a bit like jumble and waving his piece of paper promising peace in our time the leaders clearly smell blood this meld blood in the form of
a second referendum which they hope would lead to a reversal of the last referendum result whether or not they're right about but it would still leave millions of people very bitter and angry it would risk peace and if the first referendum is somehow an old i think the most likely outcome is treason may being overthrown by her own army her own party and the new prime minister returning to you square one there are plenty of people in the wings waiting boris johnson even gore is here for the occasion just to look prime ministerial and he's churchill's biographer. the connection was galloway their russian woman maria who's charged in the united states for being a spy his father requests to change her plead no but to his lawyers have prepared a motion with the hearing likely to be held sometime this week we hear. to define
and break counsel into government through its attorney respectfully found this joint motion to set a change of plea hearing in the above caption matter and request a hearing at the court's earliest convenience we understand that this has been filed and they're requesting a hearing in which she can then change the police people are jumping to some pretty strong conclusions the press has been speculating that she may be ready to plead guilty however that's just it's a pretty strong conclusion to jump to now at the moment it would be possible for her to perhaps change her plead to no contest maria bettina she has been charged with being an agent allegedly of the russian government and trying to infiltrate the politically powerful national rifle association and at first it was put forward that she had been in town to act with intelligence officers and that she'd been trading favors for sex however prosecutors have backed away from some of those stiffer charges they dropped the charge of espionage at this point are simply
charging her with being an unregistered lobbyist failing to report herself as a foreign agent now she's denied all charges said that she is not guilty and after her arrest she was denied she was denied bail and she was held pending pending trial so she's been in a federal prison awaiting trial this entire time since her arrest what we do know is that as early as tuesday this hearing could take place apparently the parties who are necessary for there to be a hearing are available as early as tuesday so people you know wait to see what happens but it appears that pretty soon we will be seeing bettina in federal court and that she will be having a hearing regarding a change of police there's a many many different possibilities about what this could mean a change of police that seems to be what is coming up and we'll have to wait and see what happens in the courtroom. elsewhere the use from police chief says mark.
it isn't for maintaining trade with iran despite those u.s. sanctions could be ready in the coming weeks frederica margaret he made that statement at a news conference in brussels from it and we have to make sure that it on ian's benefit that young people benefit from the lifting of sanctions even after the u.s. this intervene for some of the sections i would expect this is tremendous to be established in the coming weeks before the handover here as a way to treat sects and to promote a legitimate business with the fact itself that the e.u. is taking this step and that's already made some symbolic expressions of support for the deal to maintain a deal is really important in itself we should not forget that the stone age allies within the e.u. the conservatives of forces are also in favor of maintaining this deal with iran after ink it's going to come dismay commision but we should not overestimate its
possible consequences now big companies in our car companies or others are going to do they're going to do do do do do best and not stop dealing trade with iran anyway because they're going to maintain their biggest trade ban but for some smaller e.u. companies who for example only have three dealings written near asia or with iran specifically they will benefit from this deal indeed there will. iran's already warned that u.s. sanctions against it may lead to a quote deluge of drugs asylum seekers baum's terrorists in the west not to run says the economic pressures facing could affect the fight against drugs on its length is the crucial bit border with afghanistan because afghanistan is the world's leading opiate supplier iran says it spends hundreds of millions of dollars each and every year to curb the illegal drug trade and he's got water not for you trump iran sanctions three words all a little too familiar at the world although washington aimed sanctions at tehran
its european companies who have felt the impact of all those sanctions may have closed the door to european business says they could apparently open another to the flow of drugs. when i warm those who impose sanctions that if iran's ability to fight drugs and terrorism are affected you will not be safe from a daily use of drugs asylum seekers bombs and terrorism in case you didn't know iran has been a barrier to a deluge of drugs coming from afghanistan feel he is. iran has a lengthy border with afghanistan the world's largest producer of opium destined for markets in europe and elsewhere in twenty sixteen alone the u.n. estimates that iran seized a hof a million kilos of opium iranian officials say they spent a hefty amounts on enforcement measures barriers canals fences around eight hundred
million dollars annually it says on sealing its borders to prevent the transit of narcotics and if iran contra is stopped because of sanctions well you get the picture. you don't weaken iran by sanctions many will not be safe washington claims to have the problem under control since two thousand and two has been engaged in accounts in our caustics program in afghanistan but i. this back in two thousand and one before the u.s. intervention poppy field stretched to around seven thousand six hundred and six has fast forward to twenty seventeen and the number grows to three hundred twenty eight thousand hectares no country drug program undertaken by the united states its coalition partners or the afghan government resulted in lasting reductions and poppy cultivation were opium production so if iran can no longer protect its borders with afghanistan a wave of drugs threatens to engulf europe and beyond another tragic consequence of
trump's foreign policy hitting allies in stat. japan was effectively banned chinese telecom equipment giants were well away and a number of other chinese companies too from obtaining government contracts japanese ministries of the armed forces have been given guidelines prohibiting them from buying any equipment produced by those chinese firms seems tokyo says it's to prevent sensitive information from being leaked this issue comes hard on the heels of the arrest of the way chief financial officer also big name daughter of the telecom giants founder indeed but i don't think the request of the u.s. washington accuses or violating american sanctions imposed on iran and its seeking or extradition that will be thrashed today in court may one choose a rest has put increased strain on u.s. china relations just as there was a hope of a thaw with donald trump and cheating paying agreeing that trade war truce or something like that anyway at the g. twenty in argentina last month china's foreign ministry now warning canada and the
u.s. of in a pretty veiled way of consequences if money isn't released. do it all more over the weekend the vice foreign minister summoned both the canadians and the u.s. ambassadors and make clear opposition over the issue we hope that the governments of the two states take this seriously as for what the severe consequences will be but the voice foreign minister warned off when we see the canadian ambassador i can tell you that it's totally depends on the canadian side itself what ways the chinese telecommunications equipment or consumer electronics producers huge it was founded in one thousand nine hundred seven the company's now the world's largest telecom equipment maker it ranks as the second largest smartphone brand globally having outdone its american competitor uppal now on kong based political scientist joseph chang told us japan's recent move now to shun way seems in line with washington's efforts to generally limit the telecom giants presence. in twenty fourteen their american government has been warning our operations and agencies

in a statement it was him acknowledge the mistakes of the past while visitors on open day appeared divided on the controversy is that it's really interesting to see how cultural history i think because of the fact that the useem is still managed by white people who are still in power. that it is still a wide vision. on the books because it's a new vision of africa it's different to the one that existed when i was a child i'm going to discover it just when you think i used to come here as a child so i'm curious to see the innovate museum i don't feel concerned by the controversy which i think it's ok that these artifacts are here in belgium a museum is a museum it allows us to see what happened the friends of the congo of course a group believe that in order for a new start all the looted artifacts should be returned. new you have
a situation where through belgium colonialism european can all means will. be. destroyed african societies and now that we've gone to a point where africans are making the demand they come and say well you don't have the infrastructure to accommodate the materials that we deluded in order for a new chapter to be opened the thousands of artifacts in the museum need to be returned to the congo that's found they can advance expand the museum and. other artifacts however the primary concern is the return of the cultural legacy of the africans. there's a heart wrenching story a young afghan boy devoted fan of football star line on messi has been forced to flee is home for the second time after threats from the taliban the group initially
