the plastic. on. the mountains of moist only grow higher. days before withdrawing from a landmark arms control agreement with the us announces it will begin manufacturing a new type of nuclear warhead. that israel is opposition leader calls for nationwide protests against the government of nicolas maduro and urges the army to help enforce the embattled president from power. to speak to be clear is my contacts with the european union leaders is that they want to deal with this house voted for last night. and it is back to the negotiating table for britain's prime
minister as parliament supports a big to rework the deal. all right broadcasting live from our studios this is international thomas certainly glad to have you with us i mean ited states is set to withdraw from the landmark i.n.f. treaty before the end of this week the agreement which was signed by the leaders of the u.s. and soviet union in one nine hundred eighty seven banned the manufacture of an entire category of nuclear arms but washington and its nato allies have said that moscow is squarely to blame for the collapse of the deal. russia. immediate range of for some years now all laws. agree. it is important. russia contacts into compliance in a transparent but
a five way if russia doesn't come back into compliance then we have to be prepared for a world without the on f. treated. with more russian missile violating the treaty moscow for its part denies violating the pact earlier on wednesday the russian foreign minister accused the u.s. of increasing the risk of a nuclear conflict by developing a new type of thermo nuclear warhead. because it's them as far as the announcement about the u.s. beginning to manufacture a new low yield nuclear warhead i remind you that the topic was already included in last year's review of washington's policy in the nucular sphere. even then we expressed our serious concern about the fact that the production of such warheads lower the threshold for a nuclear conflict and as such increases the risk of nuclear conflict. it is the pentagon's newest toy the w seventy six dash two when it is essentially i mean
new less baggage less radiation less fallout and most importantly less responsibility i think you start through. and major countries are. developing nutri. their research what can be developed and what cannot be. countries are treated so there's not one dominated country and we're all could do could be an engine of other countries naturally this new nuclear arms race is not america's fault but every what outsiders namely the usual suspects since twenty ten we have seen the return of great power competition to varying degrees russia and china have made clear that they seek to substantially revise the post cold war international order and norms of behavior we could of course beat a dead horse and again point out that russia is not even in the same league as the
us when it comes to military budgets in fact russian military spending has been fooling for years while america's has ballooned symbolic as well within days the us should begin withdrawing from the into immediate range nuclear forces treaty blaming russia's development of a cruise missile but really gets on the old nerves here is the commander in chief of the united states is unpredictability and seemingly his habit of threatening everyone we have more money than anybody else by far we'll build it up so we have a tremendous amount of money to. what with the iraq military said we are going to develop the weapons funding to modernize our nuclear arsenal so important we're spending a tremendous amount of money on our nuclear arsenal nobody will have close when
two minutes to midnight on the doomsday clock on the brink or now officially into a new cold war a nuclear arms race will power as it each other's throats and no light at the end of the tunnel countries will continue to make threats against other countries just look at what's happening no. different treaty to go she the rule of major treaty to go she should know between china and the united states and the archers so i sometimes. put your phone and so on listening to turley and from a national security. countries like through. their troops you can see the intruder in the room with us you're going. all right a new wave of anti-government protests are currently being held across one as well in response to calls from the opposition leader one journalist most article reports
now from caracas where currently in elsevier square one of their most implemented venue's for a position protest. place is a very crowded after one way to cold for a new round of protest after he isa investigated by the. government a supreme court and the public prosecutor due to activities against the government earlier and we saw precedent nicolas maduro of these sit in the troops the armed forces trying to gain their support. everybody but it is the first time this has happened. it indicates just how desperate the white house is they can't go with venezuela it's a delicate matter what am i doing i'm fulfilling my duties that supreme commander under the constitution and so has done a one way girl who has been speaking to the armed forces trying both of them to win
. word of the armed forces of one of the most important estimates of their venice well in polity though it's although not the soldiers of venezuela i'm talking to you this is the moment to be on the side of the constitution is not the time for fear or time to step but it's not the time to disrespect the venezuelan people. meanwhile the u.s. government has recognized one way though as an interim president of venezuela and actually congratulated him also one way to go and boy at the u.s. has said that the opposition will not engage in any kind o. dialogue with the venezuelan government. now u.s. government officials are speaking out on the protests in venezuela president trump expressed his approval of the rallies while secretary of state powell is calling on the venezuelan military to support opposition leader. nicolas maduro hasn't meanwhile warned of the consequences if the u.s. intervenes. speaking in caracas material called on people not to trust washington's
version of events in venezuela and warned of the us of a second vietnam war. since they cannot fake venezuela and having weapons of mass destruction to intervene against us they know make up lies on a daily basis and false news to justify aggression against our country but if we thought let's not allow another war like vietnam in latin america if the government of the united states intends to intervene against us they will have another vietnam worse than you can imagine. the venezuelan president has also accused donald trump of ordering his assassination remarking that if something happens to him washington and the colombian government are the ones to blame joined unit o'neill in the studio earlier with the latest on the turmoil in venezuela. the things that mr moore was saying lately on the one hand it as been typical nicolas maduro
furious about everything america's doing on the other hand mr wood door is saying that he's absolutely ready to talk to donald trump anywhere in the u.s. and minister and any kind of format and he's sure that these kind of negotiations will be a great success although he says that donald trump's advisors in america would never allow this kind of meeting to happen so he mediately takes a step back well just to remind you and this is how he addressed what donald trump was doing and donald trump himself just a little earlier this week. i mean. when it comes to mr goh ideal caracas was forced to act when washington said that it was pretty much handing over the floor tunes belonging to the majority
government although they were in american banks to the opposition leader and so now . assets and accounts in venezuela have been frozen and he's not allowed to leave the country and he's now also being investigated for attempts to assist other countries and to feeling invent as well as internal affairs now in response to that already caracas has been promised severe consequences by donald trump's national security adviser john bolton we know that the u.s. is not alone in terms of support for the opposition leader where other countries coming down in this in this say divide really if we look at the opposition support surely america has been the champion we've got to think the. you hear in this case because some of the strongest players of the blog for now the u.k. still in their germany france and spain they have sent an alternate and for mr
moore they promise that they will recognize one as the legitimate leader of the country unless the cost of a door and now is an early election before the end of this week but this isn't enough for one in an interview with the german magazine built he says that he once more helped by the way that interview was titled built meets the hope of venezuela. we thank germany and europe for supporting the activists who had to flee we hope the e.u. is serious about the ultimatum is against me and reach a conclusion on the situation we can almost be one hundred percent certain that the ultimatum will bite the dust and fall flat because mr meridor is saying the next elections in his country won't happen before twenty twenty five and that is the official and of his term asked president by the way russia also had something to
say about that ultimatum by some european union countries as it relates any initiatives to mediation must be unbiased they should come from different players who have an influence both on the government and the opposition plus we have to understand the purpose. preparing the ground for a compromise between the sides must be the only purpose if the goal is to push through what's already been decided there's no need for such mediation russia has been backing the majority government as the old the legitimate government of venezuela which was in fact elected however moscow has said many times that it's ready to become a mediator in the crisis well just now we heard from the russian ambassador and then as well that so far no such requests have been received by moscow from the opposition or the government so the russian side will be waiting for that to happen
before it starts any kind of action political commentator john white told us the u.s. is aiming to regain influence in venezuela which it lost under the current government . of us that's a violation of their legitimate governments normal trade relations with other sovereign governments it's not just about washington wanting his country back i.e. venezuela being returned to its rightful place in the eyes of the neo cons in washington as a wholly owned subsidiary this is about pushing back against russia's influence in the region the americans are clearly what it about how that influence is going to tell across the way the region but other countries start to see russia as more of a safe bedtimes have got into enough sovereignty gotten she'd gotten thousands stability and being a safe pair of hands because that she has to international look it's a despicable announcement because these are contracts that need to be upheld and
the need to be respected they were sent by the countries legitimate government and for this opposition these are these coup plotters to say that they will resend those contracts if the managed to succeed in their objective book or through when we do look they're not is that the spectacle that just speaks to home elaine distain amec isn't what this is all about you know british labor party m.p. chris williamson told r.t. he's going underground that he fears a u.s. military intervention in venezuela could have disastrous consequences. but we cannot tolerate in my opinion is a external intervention of the states or any other western power for that matter we've seen where they sense in the past haven't we all both on the continents of latin america and elsewhere in the world this is the same old playbook and you know it always ends in a disaster and the most saying you know clearly there must be problems right now and i tell you all they could get a hell of a lot worse and what we could end up with is a bloody civil war a bloody civil war actually with u.s. ground troops involved in that they speak with forked tongue in my opinion those
who are claiming to you know be concerned about the plight of poor venezuelans because what they are doing they all they are taking supporting a path that will impoverish and potentially cause the law itself hundreds of thousands if not millions of venezuela's. the former head of starbucks has announced he is considering running for the us presidency next year howard schultz took a swipe at president trump in doing cell who was quick to fire back were living at a most fragile time not only the fact that this president is not qualified to be the president but the fact that both parties are consistently not doing what's necessary on behalf of the american people howard schultz doesn't have the guts to run for president watched him on sixty minutes last night and i agree with him that he's not the smartest person besides america already has that are in the hope that
starbucks is still paying me their rent in trump tower or mr shelter's announcement was slammed by the democrats as well who fear the independent candidate could split their voters i want to see america when i don't care if you're democrat independent libertarian republican bring me your ideas. his critics have now called for a boycott of starbucks and are urging people to get their coffee elsewhere we asked people in new york what they thought about howard schultz his chances of becoming the next american leader. he has a right to run he wants to run i think that he could do a bit of a job as a president now i feel like you need some sort of experience with. public office i think he definitely would have a lot of people who would be interested in seeing what he has to say. spectacularly if he's trying to bring down trump and you divide the ticket that he
could easily lead. with a minority of the vote if you ran it would really hurt. it would help of getting reelected i think it will actually hurt trump. over the excessive for sure i don't know why people would say that just because he's running for president is mission boycotting i don't believe in boycotts of anything i think people should have their opinions and be able to do what they want to in a free country i think that seems a rather pointless idea legal analyst jennifer britton told us why she believes many democrats are so angry about chills is announced. now if you look historically at u.s. presidential elections and most of these campaigns historically third party candidates independents libertarians other parties they generally are not successful they end up splitting away from the opposing base and so we have seen that historically however twenty twenty is looking to shape up to be a different year frankly and almost ironically because of what donald trump has
done in the white house which is change the way things are going changing a lot of the narrative so what we're seeing here is actually the hate for donald trump from the democratic party that's spilling over on to howard schultz for the democrats they think that anybody that could take away from their shot should be donald trump in two thousand and twenty anybody that might take away from that anybody that might run as an independent and take away votes from the democrats because they would be voting for an independent any of that they could leave donald trump in power the democrats are going to hate they're going to come after them they're going to be angry they're going to be afraid so that's why we're seeing some of the animosity now coming out against howard schultz because of because that he's mentioned wanting to run as an independent. it was a day of small victories for british prime minister theresa may on tuesday as m.p.'s voted on amendments to the brig's a deal in parliament however it could all be short lived with the e.u. seemingly unwillingly to take negotiations further on his bureau reports. plenty of
reaction from europe to that vote in the house of commons on tuesday night i'll start with those messages that were all message that was supportive of me the reason i say message is there is only one the german chancellor's office here in berlin putting out a statement saying that angela merkel held a phone call with the polish prime minister in which both said they were committed to trying to find a deal to avoid that dreaded no deal break that however in the european parliament we heard from michele the e.u. chief negotiator on break that he said well the blame game that's going on inside british politics needs to stop and focus really needs to be found on finding a solution to to the break that problems to the brakes an impasse we also heard from any piece like alomar brocky said that the infighting has to stop. as well adding the same message junkyard younker the european commission president said that there would be no renegotiations of the withdrawal agreement he said that it's
they were committed to supporting island and that was also backed up by other e.u. leaders as well sometimes from time to time i have to question the. some hope that the twenty six other countries really burns and vexed. at the last minute but this is not a game. is it disappeared by left issue it goes to the heart of what being a member of dupion union meets bordeaux is you look sport and our union. my message to me the you position is clear and consistent that we draw agreement is not open for renegotiation yesterday we found out what the u.k. doesn't want but we still don't know what the key does warm simon cove me the irish deputy prime minister the irish foreign minister has also been speaking on wednesday saying that there's no all turn. that of to the backstop as it's written
in the withdrawal agreement now he also said there would be no reopening the negotiations so jeremy corbin and his team have seen me with a reason make and her team this meeting took place on wednesday in the prime minister's office in the houses of parliament not at number ten downing street visit to the the official residence for jeremy called and his opposition they were supposed to be trying to have talks about how they could take the country forward together before they went into those talks this is how they were talking to one another in parliament could you set out today what leads alternative arrangements might be nasty night the house set a clear direction on the way that the house could agree a deal and that's right and that is about dealing with the rise of the gentleman says with the issue with the backstop as i said yesterday there were a number of proposals for how that could be done none of that was very clear to me i'm going to vote anybody and i would have been our eyes mr speaker it would have
been really nice of the prime minister to acknowledge that she did we're programmed please to try and support no deal and was defeated on that i mean absolutely clear is my contacts with the european union leaders is that they want to deal with this house voted for last night no sign of a break in the impasse as of yet but one piece of news coming through to us all wednesday evening from the european side is that even if it goes to the no deal break that the thirty nine billion pound breaks that divorce bill as it's being called will still be owed that won't be written off at all so even if there is a no deal breaks it there's still going to have to be money paid to brussels. emeritus professor of international history and the london school of economics alan scared told us he doesn't believe the bloc will be willing to return to the negotiating table. does look as if he's running into a brick wall everybody said more or less so when he said the. old agree with the not going to. get to the center of this particular.
problem are absolutely adamant no one halves the alternative. except they believe that it is just like to try to stand up to fifty but that failed the house of commons my succeed the second time. the twenty seven member states and the european parliament would have to agree to that and they said they want to extend to fifty. just for the sake of because they would have to see a proper plan with divisions growing over bragg's it and euro skeptic parties gaining momentum across the european union some pro e.u. politicians have been renewing calls for unity not everyone is sold on the idea of .
the free to choose multiple identities be proud of all of them i'm from again i'm flemish belgium i'm european there is no contradiction at all there is no. i am a european but no you are. still claiming the e.u. has the right of being european people european but may still be against the e.u. . it is clear that people that identify themselves as council and are not respected a person proud to be european must speak up so this enormous injustice in catalonia i want independence for my country of catalonia in prison because of my views you. i'm a dream woman an amateur photographer a ph d. candidate. i refuse to be labeled by nationality as can i do banking with multiple
identities this. president has lashed out at america's intelligence agencies calling them naive and even suggesting they should go back to hearing that iran is not currently developing a nuclear arsenal we do not believe iran is currently undertaking activities we judge necessary to produce a nuclear device they are testing rockets last week and more and are coming very close to the edge their economies now crashing which is the only thing holding them back be careful of iran perhaps intelligence should go back to school. building nuclear weapons as well as missiles capable of carrying them for that reason the president scrapped the iran nuclear deal struck following twelve years of negotiations and iran that was not the only point of discord between the intel
establishment and the president intelligence says north korea is unlikely to give up its nuclear stockpile while trump has tweeted there is a decent chance denuclearization status of isolate is also a point of contention believes islamic state to remind remains a threat while the president claims it is almost destroyed former cia analyst and whistleblower john kiriakou thanks views are being formed by those in his inner circle. the contradiction on iran between what the president's position is and what the intelligence says i think is very fundamental in that you have john bolton as the national security advisor john bolton is probably the single most anti iran. intelligence figure in america and least whispering into the president's ear every day that the iranians are terrible and so don't trouble and went into this
presidency with the same position that he also turns to a young senator a republican named tom cotton from the state of arkansas tom cotton also is stridently strongly anti iran and don't forget that benjamin netanyahu the prime minister of israel is very influential in this white house they he and trump speak regularly and trump takes his advice and does a frail back in thirty three minutes with more look at your headlines to much much international stage. god.
was. not up and was. attempting to force regime change in venezuela brought to you by the trumpet ministration washington's gross interference in the internal affairs of this latin american country is risky and the possibility of large scale violence is very real one thing is certain the people of venezuela will suffer the most. it's.
a matter of time they were going underground after critical bricks it votes in the past twenty four hours coming up in the show half a million venezuelan troops mobilize against the threats of a u.k. backed coup d'etat in the nation that holds the presidency of the world oil exporting alliance opec labor leadership i like chris williamson m.p. tells us the parallels with other nato nation interventions are all minutes and trying to make mumsy. is to rappers a convicted for performing drill music we expose hypocrisy in the houses of parliament and austerity cuts that kill more than life crime with drilled in the city all the small growing up in today's going underground but first nato nation media is in a frenzy about today's u.s. backed demonstrations in venezuela take a look at this authenticated video from the past few weeks a warning it contains violent imagery. actually that's paris not caracas paris where thanks to an alleged french rubber bullet
prominent activist rumored regas could be disabled for life after saturday's eleventh week demonstrations as for the nation with the largest known untapped reserves of oil that as well or nato nations have come down strong on nicolas maduro it is clear that nicolas maduro is not the legitimate leader of venezuela well it is certainly care that puts the u.k. on a collision course with post brics a potential partner china china has always opposed the principle of interference in other countries internal affairs and opposes foreign interference in venezuela's affairs and that other nuclear power russia what you're doing is not called prevention it's called incitement how would you feel if the russian federation proposed to discuss on the security council the issue of the situation in france and the protests of this. just over the past weekend some twenty two thousand.
