8:07 pm
least a slight chance that moscow and washington could be on the same page when it comes to venice well of well it's like the pale didn't speak to journalists all after this here in finland but when. i talked to the media he thought it wasn't a good idea to shed light on any of the details pretty much but he did respond to my question about my poem barrow's statement from this weekend that russia must get out of venezuela and also about the possibility of cool said intervening militarily when you start a loose. constitutes and we tried not to concentrate on those statements which are publicly discussed because they are being affected by many factors the don't have anything to do was real politics we concentrated on the real politics in the sense
8:08 pm
from my contacts with the u.s. late an american and european colleagues i don't see any suppose it's moved a reaction and media at the after this i asked the russian foreign minister if that included american diplomats and to that he simply answered yes but the real question right now is though whether that is really the case because many times we've heard from the most high ranking officials in america the phrase all options are on the table including the military one and when secretary of state pump air was heading to europe the journalists were reporting that on the plane he said that nicolas maduro can no longer be in charge of this country he believes he is simply not able to do that even though he is the. of the country and i can tell you that the government in venezuela understands that they could end up having to brace
8:09 pm
for the worst case scenario just listen to what their foreign minister said when he was in the russian capital on sunday muscle don't open it but oh but i get it we are ready for all scenarios the 1st includes diplomacy dialogue and peace and if the u.s. prefers the military we're ready to resist we have an army police in our people and we're ready to destroy any army no matter how powerful it is so essentially the most influential powers on the opposite sides here the government at any cost dural and the self-proclaimed president one why do so or finally touch on this president donald trump how spoken to president vladimir putin the top diplomats have met but it is unclear whether that would still lead to a peaceful resolution of this longstanding venezuelan crisis.
8:10 pm
it's weak iran announced it would no longer all of its commitments under the historic 2050 nuclear agreement it came precisely one year after the u.s. unilaterally pulled out of the deal something that has hit iran's economy hard and heightened international tensions and one is now threatening to keep access and which to raney and stocks in a country rather than sell them abroad to one has also given the pan signatories 2 months to ensure their poll they net side of the deal or it will resume production of more highly enriched uranium the move met with mixed reaction from europe and a new round of sanctions from washington. the united states wanted to pull out of the j c p a way in order to make iran withdraw from the deal the day after so the us would be able to refer the case to the un security council to ease the burden on the shoulders of the us to redouble and ratchet up the pressure on iran iran did not fall into this trap. we have continued to say actually every
8:11 pm
that leads us to believe that there is escalation that may be taking place and so we're taking all the appropriate actions both from a security perspective and well as. our ability to make sure that the present has a wide range of options and they made this up that should actually take place what we've been trying to do is to get around to be him like a normal nation. unfortunately this is typical of our american colleagues during my meeting with u.s. secretary of state my computer in finland on monday i called on him to employ diplomacy rather than issues threats when it comes to challenging situations. we urge the iranians to think very long and hard before they break that deal. today nothing could be worse than iran leave in the agreement there are no sanctions today from europe because iran has so far all respected the commitments.
8:12 pm
on g.'s rick sanchez discussed iran's throughout to restart its nuclear program with slide mohammad marandi of the university of toronto who helps negotiates the iran nuclear deal. even insiders here in washington with think tanks representing organizations like carnegie endowment are now saying the troubled ministration is being quote deliberately provocative but we ask the question tonight is iran acting in a manner deserving of u.s. and israeli condemnation or are both countries simply trying to provoke busy the iranians into a war much like our invasion of iraq some are criticizing the 1st question why is president rouhani threatening to restart the iranian your rating and richmond program. well i think it's pretty obvious the iranians negotiated the nuclear deal after many years of negotiations and the iranians
8:13 pm
made. significant concessions they were flexible in order to show the international community that its nuclear program never was anything but peaceful and that iran contrary to what we constantly heard in the western media was not looking to create tension i'm going to back you up on this actually 14 reports by the international nuclear energy agency 14 are confirming that iran has not violated the agreement at is not building a nuclear program why didn't the obama administration the trumpet ministration or the netanyahu administration buy that why did they believe it why do they say differently. that's why i think the intelligence agencies knew exactly what was happening and i think that they knew quite well that the nuclear program was peaceful the united states government and the political establishment really never
8:14 pm
forgave iran after the revolution and the fact that iran chose an independent foreign policy but right now what trump is after in the union of many. people in iran is not to limit the nuclear program but according to what we see from coming from bolton and i'm pale it is basically to not just overthrow the political establishment but there was even talk about trying to make iran as a nation collapse all together. question marks 74 years since the surrender of nazi germany was taken the commemorations are to this very short break stay with us . so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy thing for

him to let it be an arms race is often experience dramatic development only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. one else seemed wrong. why don't we all just don't call. me. yet to shape out these days becomes educated and it gains from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. at least 6 of.

your run of beer for sure rio are. now reduced to screw certainly. nothing unites this country more then the war it's all right human march every time i see this i just don't understand when the flow of the crowd is going to stop it's and this. victory day holds a special place here in russia due to the incredibly high price paid by the paper as a self-made union of a $26000000.00 died in the conflicts more than half of them finian's meant that particularly every family lost somebody. one of the bloodiest battles in the
8:18 pm
history of mankind took place installing grout in southern russia now known as volgograd and lost it for 200 days between 942 and 943 and coast the red army more than 1100000 soldiers germany's losses were even higher on news in the battle over nazi leadership even declared a day of national mourning many historians say the battle of stalingrad as a watershed moment as it dramatically altered the course of the war even now hiring reminders of the trauma inflicted by the war are emerging. from a silly collab each day and the last one left i've been injured and will not last long.
8:19 pm
but i will stay here i will die when i refused to give in to the enemy tell my wife that i was defending the mother like. my. you will win no matter what. eventually comet's. i am. joe biden vice president under barack obama is leading the pack in the contest for the 2020 democratic presidential nomination that's according to the latest polls and it seems much of the media and democratic leadership are throwing their weight behind the former senator as they once did with hillary clinton and has more. a new poll
8:20 pm
shows that joe biden has surged ahead in the race for the democratic nomination in 2020 the poll shows that 46 percent of democrats are backing joe biden as the potential nominee with only 14 percent backing bernie sanders and despite a lot of other polls telling a very different story the media has jumped on this one voices are now telling us why he's the best choice for the democrats and this is a guy who doesn't have a republican but you see some of the folks on the website you meant for joe biden is that he's the most electable candidate for democrats to beat donald trump i think joe biden best chance of success does this sudden coronation remind you of anything. hillary clinton is the best candidate democrats can put forward a take on donald trump voters in wisconsin think hillary clinton is the best candidate hillary clinton is the best candidate the media tells us that joe biden is the most experienced candidate furthermore it stresses the point that biden is
8:21 pm
a centrist he's actually kind of a centrist which is one of the reasons why i think republicans fear him more than the other hillary clinton is not threatened in terms of the nomination because he is a pretty moderate centrist democrat and in fact biden's 1st campaign fundraiser happened at the home of the exact same guy his name is david cohen he's the chief lobbyist for the media conglomerate known as comcast now both biden and clinton voted for the iraq war both biden and clinton have lots of wall street donors and both biden and clinton screamed to lock him up in the 1990 s. driving america's incarceration rate sky high trumps a victory in the 26th election was interpreted largely as a rebuke of a failing political establishment now hillary clinton's husband got some interesting advice years ago my wife gave me a psychology book several months ago in which the author defined insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting
8:22 pm
a different result perhaps it's time to revisit that book polls are often a reflection of media coverage and the corporate media in the united states love suman gives him lots of coverage and that can give him support in polls and they often poll likely democratic voters which is not the same thing as who actually ends up voting in a generalization even just who answers polls is not the same thing as who votes clinton she was the most experienced and the most right wing of the democrats and the media loves turbot he didn't mean she could get elected in fact the polls were overwhelmingly clear time and time again b.d. of appreciate them if there are massive purchases of advertise. 2020 years already gauged of what the media like you saw what we know everyone there that we leave here and it as they did overwhelmingly with your eclipse it does not mean what obvious mean that disappeared it was going but we don't all work each. day
8:23 pm
spokane's provoked another storm of controversy this time my banning an australian breast cancer advertising campaign for violating its rules on nudity. is this. the ads feature topless survivors of breast cancer by covering themselves with small cakes the campaign was launched by the breast cancer network australia together with the bakers delight's chain last year it weighs more than half a 1000000 dollars the chief executive of breast cancer network australia says that facebook previously approved the advertising advertisements. we were so disappointed to hear that facebook had found that our very brave women and men who all had breast cancer were told that they were probably too real into confronting
8:24 pm
to be able to have on facebook particularly in that 40 plus age group use facebook to tell their friends and family of things that are important to them so facebook has been important we have a plane trying to get in contact with facebook and still we have only heard through the made here in fact here in australia that they sent to us we needed to add educational messages this was very new news to us the only thing that we knew is that all the ads were allowed to happen but then again the day that we launched facebook said these ads were no longer permissible a spokesperson for facebook australia says that while she personally loved the idea the ads didn't follow platform guidelines the policy does allow for the posting of post mistakes me photos ordinary people but for advertisers the rules are stricter here's how facebook users have been reacting. violated the platforms needed to
8:25 pm
policy facebook seriously but this is ok this is not to root for facebook naked garden indeed takes precedence over a fundraiser for cancer survivors and sufferers only illustrates the true agenda of the facebook mission statement so when a group use the facebook forum for a good cause they jump and it's been shifted down we spoke to human rights attorney jennifer breeder she thinks that the ban points to wider concerns with the social media giant. facebook right now say that it has a consistent policy if you just look at the language of its policy but it is not consistent and how it in forces its policy is targeting in campaigns like this with breast cancer research or awareness but it's also targeting different political groups and certain things so it needs to look at how it targets so that it chooses to enforce its ban under because there are many people who have far more explicit ads that are not banned we're seeing that america has a silence prominent conservative voices were seen that is they silence other things
8:26 pm
other ads and they target these people they target those if they want to silence that differ with them politically or socio economically and that is not ok we need to have consistency and we need to have platforms that allow the freedom of speech to come out rather than silencing the freedom of speech and using it under the guise of violating policies where there is all your world news headlines for this hour we're back in 30 minutes with a late fee that. there's an petersburg international economic forum is a unique thing to today's business world. over the last 21 years the forum has become a leading global platform for discussing economic issues facing russia emerging markets and the world thousands of business community members attend the forum to
