now. here is a need and his emotional campaign. frustration and anger both in the u.k. and europe as prime minister theresa may tries for a 4th time to get her back the deal over the line sweetening at this time with a promise to m.p.'s to hold a vote on the 2nd referendum if they back it up. with evil actions just around the corner tech giants say there is no sign of any russian interference despite much media and political hype to the contrary. and the us state department says the syrian government is planning a chemical attack on a rapid response of so that us president trump claims he's under pressure from the military industrial complex to keep up american adventurism abroad.
7:01 am
you're watching our 2 international bring you your live news update from our studio here in moscow welcome to the program. theresa may is up against it as she makes a 4th bid to push through her deal this time around the british prime minister is doubling the carrot of a vote on a 2nd referendum before m.p.'s but that and other last ditch concessions have been derided from all sides. well it's a 0. 000 but i won't go through the other culture because it's basically a rehash of what was discussed before this if you can move the food for the deal does nothing to disprove you say a single market where she promised a bold new offer and here is to reason may's fault the incarnation of a brags that bell she needed something different enough to sell to m.p.'s and there are a number of concessions that she's made she's going to be making the case to the country
7:02 am
over the next couple of weeks there are 10 main points too many to list but the 2 main headline grabbers are is that she will offer m.p.'s a vote on the option of a customs union and that big big carrot that she's offered m.p.'s will get to vote on a 2nd way friend but only if they pass the deal in the 1st place the government will therefore include in the withdrawal agreement bill introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a 2nd referendum and this must take place before the withdrawal agreement can be rushed outside to reason may's never wanted it herself she's always said that she would just like to stick to implementing the results of the 1st one but she's trying everything she can to try her already dented political legacy she is after all a one issue prime minister she came to power almost 3 years ago promising to deliver
7:03 am
on drags it out and she's still trying to salvage that take a listen to how grooming if a deal is rejected again some suggest leaving without a deal but whatever you think about outcome poland has been clear it will do all it can to stop it. if not no deal then it would have to be a general election or a 2nd referendum that could lead to reza cation and no. reason may said that this is the last chance for m.p.'s to vote good deals through off to rule the default setting in october is for a no deal with drawl but it's also to reason may's last chance to save her political legacy and to deliver on the brags that she's promised throughout her leadership she's failed to pay her bills through parliament $3.00 times already she's failed 6 weeks of cross party negotiations the u.k.
7:04 am
was meant to leave the e.u. on the 29th of march that didn't happen in the u.k. wasn't supposed to be taking part in the parliamentary elections which is happening so naturally all the questions at the end of that big speech from journalists trying to make sense of it focused on one issue and that was when is she going to step down so i mean you officials aren't particularly pleased with theresa may is latest efforts are they are stressing that the block is in no mood to reopen negotiations on the internet of course has been having a field day. theresa may 1st if i may queen of making it up as you go along the burns kept in chains and mother of chaos maze new deal got a boat brags that to stop regs it waits in why no. bracks.
7:05 am
former director of research at the institute of economic affairs jamie whyte so theresa may has no chance of getting her deal over the line. there are 3 outcomes that are possible no deal breaks at all unlikely the 2nd referendum i think is increasingly likely or just continuing on until a full blown political crisis emerges which results in a general election on the assumption that theresa may doesn't get this through they'll be a new leader of the conservative party soon enough. since we started from scratch completely because there. is resistance in parliament almost every possibility so that information is out but still with no material progress in 2 years and we'll have a new leader who can be starting from scratch or britain hasn't left the e.u. yet it will take part in european elections on thursday senior in new figures aren't especially pleased about the prospect of seeing hardcore brigadiers
7:06 am
galloping into the european parliament with france's economy minister for one thing the quicker the e.u. leaves the better something britain's e.u. vote shouldn't even be happening. i mean i was supporter of the 2nd referendum for about 2 and a half years it's just gone on too long and i never was fed up with. this i think this is a turd trying. to get him breakfast steak today hearing about it you know me voting in the european elections why is that i well i want to leave european well it's like this being absolutely floating is really important. i think it's completely useless and a waste of time for the english and a waste of money for the european union it's going to cost us a lot and it is only enough i don't want to don't know the english have never really been in the europe they always had their conditions in the surrealist in
7:07 am
absurd. so i think it's important that they can vote they are still a part of europe at the moment. i think that the british like the french and all europeans leave in democratic countries and as long as democracy exists it is necessary that everyone can express their ideas and ideals. it seems intuitive to me i can understand but it's difficult to motivate people to worlds to take part in an election that they should know this but separating. well bags that is giving some europeans a headache ahead of the election some appear more concerned about something else that's not happening russian meddling artist get over has more. earlier this week fans were gripped by the series finale of game of thrones but there's also plenty of fun of a nother fantasy tale the story of meddling in a you elections winter isn't the only thing that's coming so is the risk of interference in our elections and guess who the suspect is we investigate the
7:08 am
claims of russia's attempts to influence and undermine the democratic system in europe fears that russia is infiltrating the very heart of european democracy and we're starting to see the early signs of essential in kind of a repeat of what we saw in the us elections in regard to russian hacking and russian tampering but just as some fans of the wranglings of west rovs were left disappointed by the way their show ended a dragnet operated by social media companies looking for misinformation and propaganda has turned up well nothing nothing from google. so far we haven't seen any interference on the platforms what about facebook there have been no published accounts of attacks specifically related to the e.u. election today twitter that's full of angry people already they must've turned up something we're always seeing a baseline level of it but nothing that has coalesced around
7:09 am
a specific topic theme or group or even country but there was one area where it was said that there was evidence of russian interference the fact that we here at r t the russian news service sputnik have been talking about the e.u. elections they have been picking up the theme consistently over the past few months they do seem to be pushing slightly and establishment messages. we've seen european politicians focus their attention on alleged russian meddling but what about real issues russia has a very common scapegoat these past years i was in western democracies the narrative this past. be careful there are russian does russian influence the russians are behind this russian is trying to do this you're a democracy and now we don't have any proof and we're drawn to strasbourg who have you got they don't have any and the whole narrative just collapsed politicians today were for senior party in russia in moscow behind the rise in the populist
7:10 am
movements don't have an argument anymore or they're losing this argument every day and they're in a very bad situation once you prove that there is no more problem coming from a friend than you have to face the fact that the problem is coming from yourself and the team that you have chosen to run the country. while moscow staying out of it the same can't be said for large corporations which are openly throwing their weight behind the idea of a united europe take german airline lufthansa for instance which put a clear message on one of its jets reading say yes to europe music streaming service spotify meanwhile called on europe to quote get vocal putting together a special playlist ahead of the vote the c.e.o. of iraq this investment managers told us large corporations have a vested interest. the attitude of the big corporations banks has always been the same of course they have 3 in this in this european and biome and it's not a surprise to me that they are actively and strongly supporting the pro european view as they have a very large network network and they use they use it no leverage innate in order
7:11 am
to bring up their policies their policies they like the most many of the issues as we know underestimated or even ignored to law europe and by these logical creations there are real issues that europe and these large corporations didn't we didn't got in didn't respond to you know they come up with some ok europe is not is not perfect about you know there is something to fix where there is a lot to fix there is a lot to fix because they have moved too much forwards into a project without taking into consideration the legitimate issues raised by the population thank. the u.s. states. partment says it has intelligence suggesting the syrian government is planning a chemical attack and was a quick response russia responded to that by saying that previous attack should be properly investigated 1st instead of just blame damascus it comes as donald trump claims he's being pressured by the us army industry to keep thousands of american
7:12 am
soldiers in syria reports. so who sets u.s. foreign policy well when it comes to the projection of military force of the constitution and common sense says that's the president your sound george w. bush put it but i'm the decider and i decide what is best but recent statements from donald trump throw that into question here is what he said if you do have a military industrial complex they do like war you know in syria with the caliphate so i wipe out 100 percent of the caliphate i shall want to bring the troops back home to place one crazy they want to keep it there you have people here in wa she want to they never want to leave some day people will explain what this is and if you will do have you do have a coupe and they call it the military just a couple so according to trump he wanted to bring troops back from syria but he was compelled to leave several 100 of them there why well according to him the usa has quite a powerful military industrial complex and if our president is fighting against it
7:13 am
it seems that he's hiding this fight rather well recently donald trump appointed patrick shanahan as his new secretary of defense shanahan spent 30 years at boeing which is one of the largest defense contractors in the united states and one of the world's biggest arms manufacturers and like many other companies contracted by the pentagon boeing is having a great year. folks in this industry have actually pointed to what they've called the trump effect have you seen that in terms of our allies and our spending not only have i seen we think it's the best time we've ever seen in a long time for the defense industry but it's not just the tri. presidency that has been a boon to the military industrial complex many different political leaders in the united states have campaigned on a platform of peace and then expanded wars once they've taken office. nations making progress toward freedom will find america is their friend. we're promote our
7:14 am
values will promote peace. we've lost thousands of american lives spent nearly a trillion dollars alienated allies neglected emerging all in the cause of fighting a war for well over 5 years in a country that had absolutely nothing to do with the 911 attacks. i will never send our finest into battle unless necessary and i mean absolutely miss and will only do so if ringback we have a plan for victory with a capital d. .
7:15 am
it's as if we've learned nothing from history the 34th us president dwight d. eisenhower warned the public about unwarranted influences when he left office over 60 years ago in the council look government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether sought or runs on by the military industrial complex. the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. we must never let the weight of this combination in danger are limiting our democratic process. we should take nothing for granted. in american people don't want to war so presidents always run as the peace candidate and then you know inevitably they start wars even richard nixon during the vietnam war was only elected because he was saying he had a secret plan for ending the vietnam war as it turned out his secret plan was to
7:16 am
escalate the war and add more troops and enlarged it works all of doubt you know these large monopolistic companies wanting to get a huge bunch of money they like threats of war they like active war they are you know they're they're the war mongers and they have an enormous amount of influence is that commensurate with the amount of money that they put into campaigns. more news after this short break. are china in the u.s. entering an endgame the battle lines have been drawn and demands made in this trade war it appears full size are preparing for the long haul what does it mean to win a trade war what does it mean to lose and how far could this test.
7:17 am
seems wrong. but i'll just tell. me you will get to see a pallet he's going to come out to try. and gain from it because the trail. when somebody find themselves worlds apart. just of the common ground. join me every thursday on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then.
7:18 am
welcome back lawmakers in the u.s. congress have been briefed by trump administration officials on threats coming from iran that have been averted thanks to washington's latest show of force in the middle east some democrats and by what they heard. it deterred a tax base sorry posturing of assets deterred attacks against american forces it's been our worry from the beginning that this is a blind escalation with the hope that the arabians will come to the table and or the hope of the iranian people will rise up to topple the regime worry very much but intentionally or unintentionally. we heard them create a situation in which a war will take place among its recent stops against around the u.s. deployed an aircraft carrier and bomber planes in the persian gulf and part of that the trumpet ministration impose sanctions on iranian oil promising to expand them to countries which by its iranian president has responded by saying u.s. pressure cannot break his people he claims to iran is actually growing more
7:19 am
resilient thanks to the sanctions artie's afshin rattansi spoke to former iranian negotiator hussein most of you need about the current situation between the 2 countries you can watch the full interview later here on our team. what are you see the you are imprisoned trump you have never seen such a conflict in confusing a strategy. from the u.s. side in lugard to iran between all signatories of iran nuclear deal the u.s. has completely violated we draw from the why did the united nations security council the europeans including u.k. they have failed to believe clear commitments for normal trade and business with iran for 2 years i don't believe such a strategy president conflicting just strategy. strategy.
7:20 am
strategy a president is following at the current core into lee i don't believe iranians would ever be ready to negotiate with such administration except if president changes it. strategy compromise with the nuclear the approved by united nations security council and respect iran. respect the principles of mutual respect non interference i believe there will be a chance. the fate of people forced out of their homes by britain nearly 60 years ago may be decided on wednesday the united nations is expected to vote overwhelmingly in favor of the u.k. ceding control of the child us islands in the indian ocean back to marie islanders and their descendants hope this will pave the way for their return.
7:21 am
the islanders expulsion has been described as one of the worst examples of britain's days as a colonial power a community of displaced islanders and london has been campaigning for the right to be resettled there for decades sabrina gina from the refugees group says the u.k. is the only obstacle to their return however. my question has been always why they don't out to reach the. british open ricky how much. of this oh and then. more so the us saw me as a 2nd generation. it's told them to realise what. ease of role the child goes to try not to all the sees why. they need to return the country to the child lotion. the islands have been at the
7:22 am
center of a decades long dispute between britain and moorish a switch in the 1960 s. ceded the territories an exchange for independence plus $3000000.00 pounds that moved a lot of the united states in 1971 to build a military base on diego garcia the largest of the atolls britain evicted about one and a half 1000 islanders to make room for the u.s. air base diego garcia it was an important launchpad for u.s. missions in iraq and afghanistan the u.s. lease room runs until 2036 so washington will join britain in today's vote. earlier the international court of justice ruled that britain illegally split the island and should return them back to mauritius rejected the ruling and russia took the issue to the general assembly in 2017 only 15 delegates opposed their decolonization bed some in the u.k. also aren't happy about britain's ownership of the island. i wish to express my concern that the government appears ready to disregard international law and ignore
7:23 am
a ruling of the international court of justice and the right of chad gossoons to return to their homes this is not a matter of decorum nice ation for the general assembly it's a bilateral sovereignty dispute between the united kingdom and more research it is a complete case and double standards and in fact many african nations will have voted. in favor of the england giving it up right now the big occupier of this island is not the u.k. there are some you case that staffers from the military because it's all military but it's the united states that controls a lot of them drones there have. got to stand over the past few years came from this base it's also the the there's also a prison there a kind of more isolated version of one time and i think at best what we can expect might be some kind of financial compensation for the. living in marriages it's sad
7:24 am
to say but to keep quiet unless we see political change elsewhere and unless the united states decides that it wants to change its foreign policy for good. 2 militants have been killed in a counterterrorism operation in a private house in russia's vladimir region the armed militants plan to carry out a terror attack in crowded locations under the instruction of foreign masterminds according to the national anti-terrorism committee during the operation the suspects refused to surrender and opened fire an explosive device ammunition and they stockpile of weapons were found at the scene no other casualties have been reported but local residents having been evacuated from the area in advance. canyoning is calling on washington to return a cargo ship seize and impounded and american samoa that demand was made by north
7:25 am
korea's ambassador to the u.n. who gave a press conference on tuesday the united states has a committee on north from and to be just the acts of the few splitting i will come up with for why your newest. forcibly taken to the immediate concern more. and to the police test of a unilateral sanctions and violation mystical earlier this month u.s. authorities said they had a rest of the ship named why is honest for violating international sanctions by loading coal at a north korean port it's not the 1st time the ship has been seized on suspicion of violating un sanctions which restricts north korea from exporting coal or importing oil among other commodities washington explain that the seizure as a move to enforce the sanctions imposed on north korea and on its nuclear program human rights attorney eric surat can think this case may spell the end for u.s. efforts to build relations with a reclusive country. it's overreaching on the part of the u.s.
7:26 am
and seen as a leverage issue arguably it's not this interdiction it's called of a ship this is denying the ability for the country to even feed itself in a lot of ways that resolution didn't allow the seizure of the ship somewhat as they fail to cooperate with the inspection when they are examined and there's really no evidence of that i would suspect that it's going to scuttle progress between the united states and north korea it's going to get an excuse for the hardliners in the trumpet ministration who don't want negotiations to go forward and will be falling back to square one unfortunately. that's a news wrap up for now but i'll be back at the top of the hour with the latest thanks for turning it on.
