good evening live from the arts international world news center this saturday 14th december in moscow it's 9 pm here now welcome to this hour's update with me kevin allen. it was $109.00 the united nations accusing the chilean army of police of committing human rights violations hearing a crackdown on protests thousands have been demonstrating since demanding the oval of the constitution rest was triggered by a hike in public transport cost when it snowballed into a nationwide movement for social reform the government imposed a state of emergency over it and deployed troops on the street university gaiters have highlighted cases of unlawful killings and torture along the way 1st offered here are some of the key fine.
1:02 pm
oh. and. human rights violations documented by always c.a.g.r. include the excessive or and necessary use of force that led to unlawful killings and injuries arbitrary detentions and torture and ill treatment. what we heard from one of the protests victims next is almost totally lost sight in one eye. it was a peaceful rally but the police turned fairy violent they were shooting the people in a 2nd when i was trying to hide from being shot i was hit by
1:03 pm
a bullet straight into my face my forehead that i was frightened because i couldn't see anything i couldn't think what had happened i've lost 90 percent of vision in one eye the doctors told me that recovery is a very long process and that i need to pray. you to do 1st of the projectile it's caused an ocular injury and unfortunately there is no hope for further recovery that's less than 5 percent right now as such will have to provide support throughout the that would tear past psychologists or post rehabilitation surgery we're talking perhaps months or even years a rehabilitation in order to address this trauma. sunday august described the u.n. report here now as disappointing and said the deaths didn't situations of extreme violence instigated by the protesters. get him alone in that we deeply regret the allegations each of them has been or will be investigated we want to emphasize that
1:04 pm
the needs to introduce a state of emergency arose from a situation of violence and not peaceful demonstrations as some have tried to claim the police and they conclude lot of. it nor. does it say leave it. they have no any any kind of pain to go on and be very adamant that he doing the pressure for the protests will continue or call for a kind been. instigated more crop of people very seriously for. him to say that the garment crash. systematically i mean they report to use the word systematically but they've a systematic approach of the operation to. elsewhere in the world this week and the united states and china have approved a phased by face trade deal they want to cut tariffs on chinese goods were at the same time boosting american farm exports to beijing it follows that 19 month long trade war now between the world's 2 largest economies caleb opens got the latest.
1:05 pm
well rumors have been circulating for the past few days that some kind of deal was in the works to resolve the trade disputes between the usa and china the idea being that the tariffs would be scaled back in exchange for tens of billions of dollars of agricultural products and other things being purchased from the united states and some concessions on china's part now in response to these rumors that we heard the democrats speaking up this was chuck schumer reports say president sold out for a temporary unreliable promise from china it's a purchase some soybeans we've heard this song and dance from china before yet again president trump company relied on to do the right thing even when his statements were pointing in the right direction now we then heard from donald trump speaking up about how this was simply fake news this is what he said the wall street journal story on the china deal is completely wrong especially this
1:06 pm
statement on tariffs fake news they should find a better lead but just a few hours afterwards we heard china come forward with an official press conference announcing that phase one of the deal was on the verge of being implemented this is what we heard from the official chinese press conference. the agreement will create better conditions for china and the united states to strengthen cool peroration economy and trade properly manage unresolved economic and trade disputes all differences and promote stable growth of china's economic and trade relations given the don would. now trump spoke up afterwards saying that essentially china had agreed to a number of structural changes and would be purchasing a u.s. agricultural products as well as energy and manufactured goods also said that he was hoping to begin work on phase 2 of the agreement but he would want to do that immediately not wait until 2020 this trade war has been asking lading between the
1:07 pm
united states and china sense june of 28 teen there's been an escalation of tariffs many many different you know regulations being put in place and different products being targeted but it seems that some kind of resolution is in the works so we now have an agreement of some degree so folks we're waiting to see what happens next there has been hope before that the trade war was going to be resolved and those hopes of then been shortly afterward disappointed so what comes next it remains to be seen but at the moment many are optimistic that it appears that things are moving forward at. the agreement told through why it's all too early though to hail any real success. is this deal going to end up being no different than what these 2 countries had to begin with it's like if i take something away from you and then i give it back to you i didn't really give it to you exactly and this was actually the exact same thing that was on the table back in march if you remember the trade deal that was on the table back in march like we said we will buy more ads you take
1:08 pm
back our tears this is exact same thing and trump was like no we demand ip protection we demand rights who are american companies in china you need to restructure your government to not handle private corporations he demanded all of these things and now china was like no we're not going to do that and look at the terms of phase one here it's so vague and all of those things are taken out the only thing that are actually legitimate on the table are literally purchases and rollback of tariffs so the journey's want us to roll back as you say are we did we roll them all bartz or not all of them about all of them are all back so the main sticking point of why this had to happen today aside from the fact that there was also some impeachment stuff going on right so you kind of take over the news but aside from that as of sunday about $160000000000.00 worth of new tariffs are going to be added to chinese goods and the reason that trump and his team needed to get something done today is because had that been enacted for the 1st time american consumers were going to start feeling this trade deal in a negative way and he doesn't want that one isn't is a non deal right now this is
1:09 pm
a deal for public consumption it's just a face really the crux of it is face to face 3 and right now in order to save even more face trump said phase 2 is going to be great based is going to be eminent and we will see how phase one turns out. more than 24 boris johnson's conservative parties on a victory to have to restore it when in the u.k. general election the prime minister's visit in the north of england to meet his fellow party in peace. to secure a big majority evening to supporters to. i want the people of the northeast today that we in the conservative body i will repay your trust 1st of all what are we going to do to reach. to get breaks it died when she got it and we have a deal ready to go before we get it in before christmas we've just been going over there the timetable we can definitely get in before christmas and then we're out on january 31st. so it was the tories biggest election win it more than 3 decades the
1:10 pm
prime minister earlier said it gives him a powerful mandate to deliver bracks it and the poll mark the worst result for the labor party since the 1930 s. so. grim up north north of the border the scottish national party was celebrating a landslide victory which is rigged knighted pulled for a 2nd appendage referendum in edinburgh i discussed the election its consequences earlier with correspondent daniel think. the polls are predicting a tory majority throughout the election campaign but not to this extent i mean labor's been decimated losing your key seats in its northern heartlands in the middle of all or many of them seats which voted labor for 3050 even close to 100 years so this is very much been a defeat for labor based really on a lot of people are saying on the question of brics it for a chance of winning with a very clear message get bricks it done it was very clear very simple it resonated with those areas with those communities that voted to leave and we've heard michel barnier say no way we're going to get a trade deal signed with britain by the end it will be $21.00 boris johnson so it's
1:11 pm
going to be well that's the thing i mean no trade deal of this size or complexity has been negotiated with the e.u. ever and he's saying that we're going to come out by generally the 1st we've been going until june 2020 to negotiate this deal it's also got be ratified of course by the $27.00 even the states if that doesn't happen the prospect of a new deal bricks that come this time next year is that very much or table spoke in the works along the line what's going to happen on the border between northern ireland or the republic of ireland that's still not sorted out plus there's the whole scottish question ok can off even more nationalist parties have done fantastically well in this election i mean speaking of ireland the deputy leader. dogs lost his seat to the new can for the 1st time since 921 says the violent nationalists now outnumber unionist s.n.p. again a whole different kettle of fish certainly no disunity in scotland they were very clear they wanted to remain in the e.u. the s.n.p. has capitalized on that and made massive gains 40. it's 18 percent increase last
1:12 pm
night we saw nicholas 30 jubilant dancing in fact when the leader just wins and lost her seat this is what she had to say on independence referendum last like a stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. renew reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over the future that mandy says that it is for the scottish parliament not a waste minister government to say whether and when this should be a new referendum on independence the office of prime minister and saying there's got no intention of allowing referendum in the near future that you've results the 20. has to be respected and there will be a return to division and uncertainty so he's been on an unequivocal that's not a priority that's not going to happen s. and p. they're already preparing to sit down next week and publish what they describe as a detailed democratic case for letting scotland aside and whether there should be
1:13 pm
a 2nd independence referendum so boris johnson isn't going to have it easy he may have his hands untied he may have lost the opposition of his own m.p.'s of labor he's got a difficult negotiations coming up and he's got the question of scottish independence and in big trouble in northern ireland as well to deal with that he had done in the studio with me so in the wake of that consumer to clean up i guess you could call it to channel or to u.k. discussed what it means for the all but inevitable wrecks it. it to all intents and purposes this selection in beach and it breaks at election which in itself is a de facto referendum and therefore in that context it is some of the standard c. that labor voters introduced that those areas. west bromwich outside of. embrace the conservative party in the large majority center in the leafy suburbs the sorry i don't see a referendum taking place now you know if it's a case of ever wanting to rejoin the e.u.
1:14 pm
it will be as an outsider study from a position of greater weakness breck's it was probably because syces factor in most voters' minds but there were a few other issues that i mean it's fairly obvious that the labor's policies were quite hard left and i think that probably didn't resonate quite so well with as much as the public as they had hoped some of the policies were a little bit a little bit extreme to say the least so that was probably part of it but i think yes the predominant issue was was practice it and the conservative party presented the way forward the certainty of the resolution and the end to the torment and frustration and confusion that we've been suffering for the last few years of course it doesn't mean that the process is finished but i think the 1st stage and crucially the political element of it is now resolved. and off the story now from europe next the german capital in fact where local c one aspect of
1:15 pm
everyday life is being iconic for the wrong reasons so now berlin's transport systems look at the consigned that particular me to this tree books for applying for unesco world heritage status no less with the company in charge jokingly admits it's known for overcrowding in rude service and goes on to say the transport system is one aspect of the city where berlin is still proudly berlin despite rapid changes evangelise sepsis takes a closer look. what does the polish the much you paid. transit system have in common well nothing yet but they may soon be sharing the spotlight and you know schools heritage list d p folky is who london and could decide to try to be focused via c.m. have in mind is. done by law to teach to the public the berlin transit authority has applied for a world heritage status and wants to be included on the same list of some of the
1:16 pm
world's most fascinating architectural monuments but what makes the berlin transit system so special be appeared in a stock page design side. it certainly convenient and even runs 24 hours a day on fridays and saturdays but if you've ever been on one of their subways you'll realize that the staff could be a little bit frosty. in the education. that's all fair the difference. it would be. somebody saying it's all good for marriage so customer service is not really their thing in mention the overcrowding and the long delays so we went around asking berliners what they think about their transit system and whether it should be included heritage list it's one of the oldest so i think you have to save it and to use it spinning great transportation to use but i don't know if it's
1:17 pm
exactly. right not because it's an it's a quite old system in and in germany the ground system and. underground stations look like a huge because here it's i don't think it should be have a huge. it's a service rather than a truck. with people already seeing yes on the company's website the whole unesco right it could indeed have some traction but it could also just be. a ticket to promote the city's public transit network so remember next time your. driver or your already limited space is being invaded on one other subways this could all be part of a world heritage experience the federal slips us for artsy. weekends going good still ahead facebook is accused of risking public health over misleading ads prevention drugs will take a much more. national life from russia. the

1:21 pm
pale is that it is dangerous this is misleading false and also only harming public health and the efforts to hiv pandemic globally they want to act like they are the biggest game in town and they are but that means that you have some ethical responsibilities when it comes to certain areas you need to throw more accurate things about health you need to do some more things about news you claim that you are a news outlet for people in place that people get news but refused to fact check or even engage in the notion and allow people to spread lies that are harmful to people's public health harm so it's a civil discourse and they until this is a democracy. and greece for a minister says he hopes that the new president of neighboring ukraine is going to act on his promises and improve the situation for ukrainians exclusive interview he gave to us peters here to talk at length about resolution to the conflict in eastern ukraine also sanctions on russia and what he thinks about the french president's recent remarks that nato is brain dead.
1:22 pm
there was one new participant on this meeting the relatively new president of ukraine and you know to be honest when he was elected really felt and you still feel some hope that things will calm better i mean things cannot be verse done under poroshenko that's for sure i mean from hunger in perspective at least but of 'd course it would be very important to have 3 elections follow diverts and i do hope that he's constructive approach i mean president is a constructive approach will help to settle the relationship between the russian federation and ukraine. we are committed to human rights to be respected that's not a question what we don't like is that that sometimes the reference to human rights serves as a basis to. to interfere into domestic issues of other
1:23 pm
countries on an ideological basis on a political basis without any good reason. there should be some at the station mechanisms launched within nato in order to be able to address the new kinds of challenges no question but calling nato braindead that was i mean to my chafing i definitely didn't agree with that part but but i mean these are the best for the war and we have to understand that there are leaders who like to say let's say things which can be media ties easily we have to understand that we have to live with that now the the atmosphere of the of the summit was rather constructive everybody was emphasizing the importance of the unity of nato and i think that that was shown very clearly. it's an interesting chart there's a lot more of it right about 20 minutes or so the full version of that available in
