6:04 am
a little bit later in the program thank you. next sanctions threats accusations and protests the political crisis in venezuela is deepening the capital caracas has been gripped by both pro and anti-government demonstrations opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president addressed his supporters calling on foreign powers to bring down the moderate government thanks very solution is intervention if you. are. germany they tried to fabricate this whole show claiming the military joined the there is only one answer yes to loyalty no to be true it. is a clone. and. after a very tense wake up official supporters are back on the streets to protest against the government of nikko last month during the cold was made by one why don't monday
6:05 am
after returning an international tour heat up the already tense climate menace was up in two or three days in a row in a massive blackout the biggest want of penicillin history at the moment the whole capital this powerless one of the but i'm protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity no water new food the government should step down there were no i'm here to defend the democratic choice of all people when we voted for nicolas maduro as our president under the constitution he is the only president unlike one door and proclaimed himself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. and call for outside how washington is trying to cripple of caracas financially in a bid to oust nicolas maduro the u.s. state department's even went as far as to break journalists who didn't agree with the united states view on venezuela. we have noticed in news coverage that some
6:06 am
outlets are incorrectly referring to one white go as the opposition leader or the self-proclaimed president. neither is correct relying on venezuela's constitution one became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize as interim president of venezuela to get this straight you're complaining because. you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct all of. since we he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be president as you say . other countries. recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than a hundred members of the nation so they're fifty countries is not even close.
6:07 am
it's the time to act in support of democracy and the news coverage of the legitimate leader the president is going to encourage more functions to work we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator but the pressure was stepped up on the venezuelan government during the week u.s. vice president mike pence announced that seventy seven officials linked to nicolas maduro would have a u.s. visa visas revoked washington special envoy to venezuela elliott abrams hinted that sanctioning third parties for supporting the venezuelan leader and the u.s. national security adviser john bolton said there would be new restrictions targeting venezuelan ally cuba adding the whole region should stand against caracas . takes a look at why washington thinks it can dictate who side people should be on the united states is exceptional literally bouncing by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to
6:08 am
decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the credibility of the argument you're making no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase munroe doctrine. it's an archaic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turn that inside out
6:09 am
instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and they are and a bill that legitimizes us meddling there terry quire threat assessment and strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and saying no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here america knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria and work through the un
6:10 am
a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our
6:11 am
mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european colonisers what that has been turned into a license. to kill to meddle to topple governments and the need to keep the continents oh you've got to be special whole right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another
6:12 am
whether in one thousand nine hundred fifty four with arbenz or the interventions that he carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vise the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. the yellow vest movement took to the streets of paris again on saturday in its continuing stand against the french government.
6:13 am
outside the capital the twenty eight thousand protesters rallied nationwide protests have been ongoing for seventeen consecutive weekends demonstrators demanding improvements from the things that the us despite president crimes attempts to calm public opinion by council fuel tax hikes and also launching national debates on the demonstrators have gathered there are also reports of a number of injuries the protesters sustained in standoff with turkey's. hundreds of islamic state fighters have surrendered to u.s. backed forces in the syrian village of bikers the last i saw held areas near the iraqi border but as medina cultivar explains the rafi is the terrorists' just biding their time. the small syrian village of the goose has been el focal point for the syrian democratic forces for several weeks now and it's been cold the last remaining on clay for feisal forces since
6:14 am
a real and not without good reason the world has seen crackdowns suffer scaping civilians and even jihadists who chose to surrender and addition to the terrorists there also their wives and children to. praising the islamic state with the different slogans they also. showed the soles of their shoes as an insult evan now they still believe this is not the end of the caliphate just a short while ago though donald trump announced that his army and allies crushed islam make state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over ever since then however there has been a wave of different opinions from those who are actually responsible for what's
6:15 am
happening on the ground for instance they had of us central command while he was sure that islamic state hasn't surrendered and the threat is still real he says the terrorists after some tactical thinking have chosen to lay low and waits for the right time to come back reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent extremism is far from over and at least for now president trump's announcement that u.s. soldiers were pulling out seems more and more in doubt but nothing seems to be certain in this ongoing conflict especially with the unpredictable situation and. you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of isis see a resurgence you know where we're going out we'll come back if we have to well as general votel testified in tangram recently he said. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it's not by any means the end of isis
6:16 am
there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and have formed we believe a farm's sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know it's some future date from the later clarify that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's a hundred ways to count troops and that may not. clude a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps national forces obviously advisors diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so isis is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are
6:17 am
misleading. however islamic state continues to make its last a defiant stand to those fleeing face new threats hunger and illness. so i have i was in lattakia i didn't leave to john i says i love seeking jihad for god because we're almost every house verses about jihad and the more about the killing slaughtering and torture let's just some are repentant and have left islamic state that are disturbed of the regime it had the right approach. the conditions are definitely dire and account the problem is nobody was expecting
6:18 am
these kinds of numbers so it has been overwhelming and it hasn't stopped. just. you know with i'll say from moscow more of this week's news coming up next and also the latest on the crash of an ethiopian airlines boeing seven three seven. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. period dramatic development only.
6:19 am
in. western countries are very reluctant to recognize the fact that is that is why i'm not formally and also to admit that they were perhaps wrong. with glee in the early stages of the war so. undermined. by the prolongation of sanctions i think it was in countries. where this is serious we can start to you know ways in which the third power not russia and iran not by the west and by the g.c.c. . relatives of the children of french to appeal to the united nations for the youngsters to be allowed back to the currently being held in camps in syria to
6:20 am
stone one of the lawyers who helped launch the please the children will be able to adapt to a normal life and from. catholics people in the french people every day for three years in a row i've been told that these children are time bones they want to prove their repatriation but in fact they're being deceived eighty four children have already returned from the have and they're being socialized the are ok they were safe from the virus life and what are we going to do are we going to leave those children just because they were born into families which left for fights but these children hadn't asked to be born there they hadn't asked to be taking their they're innocent . according to the save the children charity there are now more than two and a half thousand children in camps in northern syria there from around thirty different countries i'm read those the lawyer we just heard from there thinks that around one hundred of them are french now france is currently dealing with them on a case by case basis but the majority of french people seem to be against the
6:21 am
children's return according to a poll anyway which showed that over two thirds around sixty seven percent of respondents did not want them back in france we spoke to the father of one of the victims of the bus a clown concert massacre in paris which was masterminded by ice so he thinks that the children of jihadi should suffer the consequences of their parents' actions. all parents are bearing responsibility for the future of their children they've left france voluntarily nobody forced them out they've decided to fight against france they've crossed themselves out of frauds and unfortunately their children should account for the consequences for me these children coming back is out of the question i don't consider them french nationals there have been lots of attempts and directed radicalization very sophisticated ones and it's a chance to get the country into the help of a social media with facebook with google and at the end of the day the results are small so the government is well aware that there's a lot richer a t.
6:22 am
of the french you do not want these children to come back to not see them as being french see them as being the children of a jihadi. those whom they might be mourning so the government has a lot of hot potato it's a difficult decision to eat it's not popular that owned earth there's also the understanding in france that many of the terrorist acts that have been committed in france were by people who were actually watched by the police and at the end of the day the police could not determine at what time they would. take action and so these people were well known and still they managed to go out and kill french people that doesn't make you popular to bring potential more of the. south africa's anti racism drives had a hurdle after in century remarks from an m.p. who said true freedom will only come when the white population is subservient to the black i don't want blacks to work for whites i want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them
6:23 am
how to carry babies on their back they must feel what our parents have been feeling we're not calling for white people to be killed but for white people to be our domestic workers julius malema is the leader of the economic freedom fighters it's a far left party which is currently the third largest political force in south africa over the years million has stirred a national debate with his views on race and class he's twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against white people and he was also expelled from the governing a.n.c. party in two thousand and twelve for sowing division within the organization and the apartheid policy in south africa ended more than two decades ago but the country is still struggling with racism white people make up just nine percent of south africa's population but own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation have already been launched by the government but both the problem and efforts to solve it are causing animosity across the board. general ideology of julius malema
6:24 am
in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't wonder you want to obliterate you want to end completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and not producing and exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean a good country thirty five thousand white families only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i owed nothing i am in fact i think
6:25 am
a tenant white people over everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. thinking it is just what i meant is is black but we can't even make laws that says we must take the learnt even these politicians controlled by money who has money why it's when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true white people are somehow denial of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect. just before we finish this so reminder of our breaking news an ethiopian airlines jet carrying one hundred forty nine passengers and crew bound for nairobi in kenya has crashed it's not known if there are any survivors but it's thought no one has
6:26 am
survived the crash the plane flight eighty three zero to. it was scheduled to take off at eight thirty eight in the morning local time but crashed six minutes after takeoff there are indications online from playing waters that there was an erratic speed as it was trying to climb but there is no indication yet as to what may have caused the crash of this boeing seven three seven max a new aircraft which only entered service last november and have been doing about two to three flights a day since it entered service in december when ethiopian started carrying passengers on as the plane was bound for nairobi in kenya on what should have been a local flight of taking about an hour and a half these are pictures that we've had in the past hour or so no doubt friends family relatives and many concerned in nairobi about what happened to that aircraft details didn't emerge until about three hours after the plane had crashed which is
6:27 am
quite unusual but that's why details are still rather sketchy at the moment ethiopian airlines say the one hundred forty nine people on board and eight crew are still checking the passenger manifest to see if that was still the case but that's what's the what was the case at the moment a recovery and rescue team are on their way reports online say there are no survivors but that is unconfirmed at this stage they're also parallels being drawn with last november's fatal air crash in indonesia of a lion air plane again that was a brand new boeing seven three seven crashed minutes after takeoff that was down to the pilots being given faulty data by a faulty bit of kit in a struggle to keep the plane in the air but it's not known whether the plane that crashed in ethiopia suffered similar difficulties will be across what's happening and all the details will be with you know neal who's here in the next half an hour from moscow this is r.t. international thank you for watching.
