9:03 pm
the famous cathedral here but the attack against the script files that took place have put this place on the map in the international scandal that ensued has really ensured that souls barry has stayed rather famous it was here it was actually on a park bench on this green that on the fourth of march last year so gay and his daughter yulia scrip are were discovered slumped unconscious they were taken to hospital and pretty soon afterwards it became clear that this wasn't an ordinary medical incident that they were dealing with the script had been poisoned with military grade nerve agent a substance known as novacek that had been. produced in the soviet union and pretty soon after that the prime minister to resign may pinned the finger of blame squarely on moscow and there were diplomatic expulsions and a war of words ensued over what really had taken place here london says the kremlin

dispatched a hit squad to come here russian military agents arrived in solsbury they say shortly before the poisoning took place they were armed with a toxic nerve agent in shin and access to the investigation saying that actually two russian nationals are involved here and we know nothing about what's happened to them take a listen to the russian foreign ministry spokesperson if people in the west in the u.k. and washington and brussels think russia will just let this slide their mistaken sergey script files nice victorious great power has also been talking at a press conference in moscow and she says that she still can't get a hold of her relatives and she's been denied any information about how they're doing or their whereabouts take a listen to. the british embassy have been telling me since day one that it cannot help me that i have to call the russian embassy in the u.k.
9:05 pm
under pressure from the media they agreed to let me make a visa application but i was refused to visa twice on formal reasons and they even didn't return my passport to me personally they sent it fire mail to even stay near the border of britain so diplomatic relations between london and moscow are still pretty much at rock bottom and this candle is the cause of much of the animosity between london and moscow the russian ambassador to the u.k. alexander told is there are still unanswered questions on the case. almost the next day russia was blamed and the key argument at that time was that russia is the only country where so-called david chalke could be pretty countries including europe most of the european countries they could produce novich org. we offered the in the u.k. government the let's see some kind of a joint investigation that was
9:06 pm
a real proposal from the russian side because we wanted to help certain issues to investigate because this is the russian citizens but so far as. the british ambassador in moscow said a few weeks ago that britain is not ready for this kind of corporation. from the legal point of view this is the clear of the international law in the vienna but actual yannick well actual convention in the vienna convention from the one hundred sixty five where the embassy has a right under their convention to see russian citizens so britain is violating international them what is their health condition where they live with the in the united kingdom everything is classified and covered you know with the secrecy. if you look at the now let's see media in the u.k.
9:07 pm
you will never find any decent story about russia most of the stories are very negative quite provoking and as american sate fake. i believe that that kind of statement in the newspaper was part of the very serious anti russian complain where most of the diplomats which are working in the embassy they are spies so this is there some kind of a witch hunt. meanwhile to resume a gave a statement via twitter saying she hopes sol's we will once again be known as a beautiful welcoming english city unfortunately there was one slight problem for. the so. the so.

9:11 pm
doctrine this is a country in our hemisphere it's been the objective of american presidents going back to ronald reagan to have a completely democratic hemisphere the monro doctrine just mentioned by bolton was formulated by president james monroe in the nineteenth century his purpose was to stop any your pain interference in the affairs of nations in the america is there any interpret the doctrine as a justification for america's own interventions in the region where she is chief diplomat has been blunt about his issues with it. plus with all kirk since the creation of the united nations in one thousand nine hundred five international law has been regulated under the auspices of this universal legitimate organization the syrian practices backyards is insulting well according to the russian foreign minister the use of the doctrine is insulting to the regional powers to the countries in latin america and you said that this whole thing should also be concerning to other nations because right now the united states have an ambition

9:14 pm

9:16 pm
than thirty thousand active fighters crossing number of countries loyal to al qaida ironically the u.s. stands accused of arming them though unintentionally in syria with weapons intended for moderate groups being seized by islamists in yemen c.n.n. reported with the saudis and their coalition partners handing american made weapons to oil qaeda linked fighters history it seems repeats itself in the nine hundred eighty s. during the soviet war in afghanistan the u.s. funded and armed the mujahideen including asama bin laden. they called them freedom fighters the mujahideen the islamists when they were fighting the u.s.s.r. but it didn't take long for those freedom fighters to morph into terrorists and the taliban into al qaida and they just won't go away no matter how many times they
9:17 pm
beat them it seems they just keep rising from the dead. back in the bottle if the us does not want to put it back in the bottle the us funnel funnel. thousands of tons of weapons into syria to our forces that it knew very well were. allied with al qaida and allied with the muslim brotherhood and so when it suits the u.s. purposes it will work with al-qaeda and other terrorists and when they become a problem either after september the eleventh or after they morphed into its. mix state in syria and iraq then of course it will it will attack them. with more attention being paid to al-qaeda recently opposition forces are besieging
9:18 pm
the last pockets of ice or resistance in syria the town of boca use the u.s. banks forces are unleashing heavy artillery shelling on i saw militants in the excuse me they claim the offensive could be over within five days around one hundred fifty terrorists surrounded on monday according to kurdish media reports before the fighting resumed over the weekend civilians as well as the wives and children of the militants were allowed safe passage has left. how many kids you have to trade but one one day where is your response to kill.

9:20 pm
though donald trump has already proclaimed victory over the self-styled caliphate on more than one occasion some time probably next week we will have one hundred percent of the caliphate as usual president trump is playing fast and loose women is kids even if it is defeated as a force controlling natural territory it has its origins as a terrorist group training suicide bombers having small so actions and we've seen that continue in iraq for example where there were some horrible bombings of civilians so the danger is that they go back to what they were originally doing and care of these kinds of terrorist attacks which are very difficult to stop. peyton's officially suspended russia's past the patient in the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty which is the key cold war era nuclear agreement.
9:21 pm
discussed this with my colleague john. well the i.n.f. treaty which has been banning land based missiles with ranges up to five thousand five hundred kilometers since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight is falling apart completely the u.s. and russia have been doing it step by step and president putin has just made another formal one he actually signed a document which suspends it on the russian side but everyone realized it was the beginning of the end of this agreement back in october last year when donald trump started bashing that show on the one hand the donald trump administration has really been trying to make it seem that moscow's behavior is the number one reason the other hand the fact is that the i.n.f. treaty was signed by the leaders of the us and the u.s.s.r. and that's why other countries weren't obliged to do anything under the agreement
9:22 pm
and in his latest statements donald trump isn't really hiding that he's also pulling out because the likes of china aren't involved in the old agreement decades ago the united states entered into a treaty with russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capability russia repeatedly violated its chair so we really have no choice. perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement and adding china and others. or perhaps we care in which case we will outspend and out innovate all of those by far russia's been saying all along that washington is lying that moscow is not violating anything and at some point they were actually ready to invite experts from abroad to examine the weapon system in russia that was of particular concern
9:23 pm
for the u.s. but that invitation was ignored a lot of our putin has made it clear that no initial steps will be made by his country the only things that he's going to order to be done could only be in response to hostile actions by america and the allies in nato. will our u.s. partners have to be honest and straightforward with us they should not have used trumped up accusations and allegations to unilaterally withdraw from it like they did in two thousand and two which they did in an honest way when they pulled out of the i.b.m. treaty i felt it was done the wrong way but at least they did it in a straightforward manner but how do they act in fact they violate everything and find excuses to put the blame on someone russia does not pose a threat to anyone or any actions we take i retaliate that is to say in defense we never seek confrontation we do not want to especially with a global power and
9:24 pm
a surprise at all it is just a formal move what we have to watch out for is who deploys or develops what next. because nick professor of history and director of the nuclear studies institute at american university thinks the u.s. doesn't want to be constrained by any treaty. i mean look you look at these people they don't want to have any treaty that's good in any way constrain the united states as trump says we're going to outspend everybody we're going to out innovate everybody there is no reason why this cannot be renegotiated and why we should abrogate the entire treaty but the what washington does not want to be constrained by any treaties now that there are legitimate concerns yes there is a legitimate concern about the fact that other countries are not included in this treaty but that was not the point of it in the one nine hundred eighty s.
9:25 pm
what we need is a much broader structure of international arms control negotiations that can bring other countries perhaps into compliance. the chief financial officer of chinese tech giant huawei name she was searched and questioned under false pretenses before she was officially arrested the defendant c.b.s. a offices under the guise of routine border check unlawfully subjected the plaintiff to detention and interrogation to extract evidence from her before she was arrested and provided with her rights under the charter my one joe was detained in vancouver airport at the request of the us if extra di said she will face charges of misleading banks about the company's business in iran in violation of u.s. sanctions on two wrong she's also accused of stealing trade secrets from american company t. mobile china has repeatedly urged canada to release its citizens saying that also war and washington are violating her rights. they would sing for the east here some
9:26 pm
u.s. government officials have been playing up these so-called security risks associated with the products of certain chinese companies and linking it with china's national intelligence in which this kind of behavior is an interference into economic activities by political means it is against the w t o rules and it disrupts the international market order that is built on fair competitions this is a typical case of double standards it is neither fair nor ethical. economist richard wolfe believes the canadian government is merely serving u.s. interests in the hallway to speed. but there's no question given what she has said happened to her that it contradicts canadian law lot and contradicts the normal kind you see you give to people. especially for that kind of nonviolent crime after leaving a crime in your own country this was the canadian government doing
9:27 pm
a disservice to the united states like willing to quickly under pressure make this arrest so that this pressure could be applied while president trump was sitting at the table with the leader of the people's republic of china it was an unmistakable political move rather crude to tell you the truth and i think that canadians were simply the service doing what the united states wants. a british rapper has broken women's weightlifting records while identifying as female to highlight what he calls the absurdity of claims there's no biological strength difference between men and women. i keep hearing about how biological men don't have any physical strength advantage of women in two thousand and nineteen so watch me destroy the british women's deadlift record without trying
9:28 pm
p.s. i identified as a woman lifting the weight don't be a bigot seabees viral tweets got over a million views then comes amid a backlash against the growing number of athletes identifying is female in women's events british olympic swimmer sharron davies tweeted that women in sports must be protected from people born as men however the world's first transgender world champion cyclist rachel mackinnon hit back insisting trying to women athletes have no unfair advantage and i think the rules states men can participate as women without having surgery as long as they undergo hormone therapy to bring down testosterone levels we spoke to the rapper behind the viral video he told us why even more restrictions may not be enough to ensure fair competition for women so i think the video went viral because it touched on a timely issue and it was somewhat amusing and comical people did find it funny
9:29 pm
but underneath all that i think it did bring light to important conversation that's a lot of that's happening all over the world right now testosterone is not the only difference that gives men physical advantage over women especially in strength and speed there are other factors as well if someone has gone through puberty as a male you've likely to be considerably taller especially at the extreme ends you're going to have a different bone structure you're going to have bigger hands bigger your entire muscular skeletal system will still remain that of a man so if i were to take some hormone be i'd still have considerable physical advantages over someone who's been woman for their entire life so it's not just as simple as the testosterone levels.
