i. i i. chinese tell. it is ready to sell the key element. to addressing concerns that poses a security risk. a feud between korea. over the upcoming 2020 olympic games in tokyo so. the japanese military. war against koreans. coming up on the program the british army switched to. technology. mentally conscious generation new recruits.
9:01 am
at the end of the do you want to be put in a foreign line and get killed you know. who's going to go and. that's what we need. not. live from moscow to the world this is our t. international from the team and myself you know neal hello and welcome. chinese telecom giant way ses it is prepared to sell the core code off its 5 g. technology to any prospective western buyer firms or indeed nations could then reconfigure it to prevent any possibility of a security breach the news comes amid continued claims by washington the way works in cahoots with the chinese government to its equipment could be used to spy on
9:02 am
users dial hawkins takes a closer look at the company's offer. it's one of this year's biggest spy scandals hallway the chinese telecoms giant accused of using cutting edge 5 g. technology not for the good of humanity but for spying for beijing the united states has also been very clear with our security partners on the threat posed by way as chinese law requires them to provide beijing's vast security apparatus with access to any data that touches their network for equipment so grave was the threat so real apparently the risk that american citizens privacy could be in danger that president trump declared a national emergency then like wildfire concerns spread around the world courtesy of u.s. officials that any country cooperating with huawei on building phone or computer networks would jeopardize their security so how real is this danger not at all who always c.e.o. shore's us but he would say that right well here's the deal the company has come up
9:03 am
with an unexpected offer to reassure its western clients when we transfer the tac they can modify codes on top of my tech once that's through it's not only shielded from me it's shielded from everybody else in the world u.s. 5 g. will be their own thing there's no security concern the concern will only be the us keeping the american companies who bought it in check so what does it all mean well who are we would sell its blueprints codes peyton's everything needed for the client to rewrite the code and thus prevent anyone being able to get back to iraq cess keyword anyone once you open the source code you can actually make changes to it that are actually going to keep you with the teacher and make sure that even if there were that tools it would be very difficult and he wanted to persist with what was the absolute there is that they exist and i think what we're going to see
9:04 am
continued patching with all the abilities that we as people continually seeking. to take it won't. but if they don't open source code. they're going to be the hackers they're going to get a massive disadvantage to them about so if that's not enough always chairman even offered to sign a no surveillance pact with the countries in which the company operates no spying no back doors so with this unprecedented offer of compromise from the telecoms giant while the panic and harsh rhetoric well remember when we said anyone spying one act as the source codes will hamper beijing spying it will be an equal blow for other countries as well the united states for example who are really who are going to blow it all and whoever's take it all to their license who are the source. you need to be able to trust the organisation and there are any number of man of that result. at this moment in time all of them have had vulnerabilities in the glass
9:05 am
that existed and they've been patched to different elements many of them still have got rebuilt is out there that they haven't touched yet and possibly haven't been discovered but the question is are all the actively government entities that engineered that goes into this equipment will remember all those times washington got caught in the act by whistleblower edward snowden revealed years of interceptions by the national security agency of servers routers and other network equipment made by cisco things were so out of control the company's management even went to the u.s. president to complain we simply cannot operate this way our customers trust us to be able to deliver to their doorsteps products that meet the highest standards of integrity and security so it always seems to have made an offer that's hard to refuse and no spine full control for the companies involved and seemingly no more security concerns the ball is now firmly in their critics court.

right another headline stories today the british army is mulling replacing its fossil. a few quid went with eco friendly versions according to the country's chief of general staff polly boyd who explains there is a wider trend of western armies trying to attract minority green conscious new recruits. they might be in the business of killing but they don't want to kill the environment while they're at it the british army is going green general so mark colton smith has said that british forces are going to be phasing out the use of thirsty gas guzzling military vehicles and equipment in favor of plugging in take cleaner technologies it's all in a bid to attract younger and more environmentally conscious recruits not only will it give us considerable operational benefits reducing logistic grab but it
9:07 am
will also get the army on the right side of the environmental argument especially in the eyes of our next generation of recruits who increasingly make career decisions based on a prospective employers environmental credentials earlier this year the british army launched a new recruitment drive targeted at young people the campaign emphasise that the army could use the compassion of snowflakes the self belief of millennial is the confidence of selfie take is and the focus of phone zombies and the push for a greener and more inclusive army isn't limited to the u.k. if u.s. democratic party presidential candidate elizabeth warren gets her way the american army will be adding fighting climate change to its to do list we don't have to choose between a green military and then
9:08 am
a factor one my plan wouldn't prove all servicemembers readiness and safety and the chief cost savings for him. american taxpayers together we can fight climate change and doing military exercises are notoriously bad for the environment munitions can take hundreds of years to degrade and toxic materials like lead can spill out and pollute groundwater back in 2017 the u.s. government put out a request for the development of environmentally friendly training bullets both the u.s. and u.k. militaries seem determined to put the eco into warrior and recruit some of them at the same time that's great brilliant good for them i don't know if that's necessarily a thing that's going to attract young people necessarily i think they i don't i maybe we were some people. i wouldn't be trying to train the army but i'm sure it
9:09 am
would be better for some people. i've never thought about. but i don't consider that likely but i think right to be on it seems to be ignored but. what do we think of what we know well going green is a good idea. young people at the end of it do you want to be put in a foreign mine and get killed you know it doesn't matter what you drink you coffee or over what you got this money out of i can't ask for an eco friendly ending to the scene of a lot of that but personally the fact that during army doesn't kind of speak to me in theory it sounds like a good idea but whether it would actually work you know really money who's going to go and fight and that's what we need to do you know. not very well have a call to. korea has filed a complaint with the international olympic committee over to poles plan to use

9:11 am

9:17 am

9:20 am
recently lifted obama era restrictions and regulations on the spraying of chemicals and pesticides near streams wetlands and other bodies of water in new wood is definition to provide hardworking americans the ring the tories certainly the need to invest and develop and build new projects that improve lives in the environment so what has changed well during the obama era if you wanted to use certain chemical pesticides and sprays in your body of water you needed a permit now you don't there's certainly going to be a lot of rejoicing about this from certain sectors many american farmers and manufacturers felt that they were being crushed by the obama era regulations intended to curb water pollution it would be great if farmers didn't have to hire an army of consultants and lawyers just to be able to farm now the new rules are being criticized as overly vague with the decision about what bodies of water get protected being decided on
9:21 am
a case by case basis now the farmers are overjoyed but that feeling is not being shared by people in communities that depend on streams and rivers many seats and towns to live in with unsafe drinking water and it's very important to us that now it's not the time to cut back on clean water protections that the american farmers haven't been too keen on donald trump lately due to his trade war with china so perhaps rolling back these clean water regulations will help when i'm some point with the agricultural sector regardless environmentalists are up in arms but as many gamblers have said before you can't win them all up and r.t. new york just time for a quick run through of some of today's other. line news around the world starting in saudi arabia where there are huge fires at 2 major state run oil facilities hooty rebels in neighboring yemen say be deployed nearly a dozen drones to attack the sites the saudi interior ministry hasn't specified whether there are any casualties saying an investigation is ongoing the saudi led

9:23 am
european table manners were imposed on conquered people in an attempt to civilize them the idea of a single standard of acceptable table manners is just one of a host of strategies used to grow and promote racism or thoughts being hard to digest in some quarters though the article by josh. was published in a canadian parenting magazine she argues that table manners should be updated to be more diverse including in schools but it's left a sour taste with many. another nail in the coffin of the word racism having any meaning left whatsoever shame of colonize asian food activist stick a fork in its we're done no wait not a fork that's racist culture isn't a race when will people learn the difference between culture and race. you know we all have different cultural norms and certainly if when you come from
