on strike for several months hospitals and emergency services units have been sounding the alarm politically nothing has been done fast the problem. they choose to the 14th of january this is all it's international live from moscow with me kevin owen thanks for being with us let me take you through our top story that in more detail iran has said it's made arrests in the case of the accidentally downed ukrainian passenger plane last week in which all 176 on board were killed. bateau your motto morbius your people it is very important in this incident that whoever was at fault or negligent at any level and we identify anyone who should be punished must be punished while. the us is being blamed for flaming tensions in the persian gulf leading to collateral deaths but the assessment of the russian foreign minister as he was speaking to the media about the escalating middle east crisis so
9:02 am
also added that the u.s. killing of a top iranian general in a drone strike well beyond all legal frameworks he said within a caution of a report. russian foreign minister sergei lavrov is currently on his asia tour and his 1st stop was here and sri lanka speaking to the media after the talks the minister specifically touched upon the situation in iran so gay lover of accuse the u.s. and fuelling an ask elating the conflict that led to the downing of the ukrainian plane and the deaths of over $150.00 people it's no one can be satisfied with the escalation of tensions in the persian gulf it has cost lives we cannot move away from the fact that it all started when the us announced that regional troubles resulted from iran's actions the culmination of washington's illegal actions was the assassination of christ himself the money he was on an official visit to iraq
9:03 am
that killing went beyond all human boundaries and the u.s. when inviting iran for dialogue is so sets forth preconditions in the form of sanctions. as the crisis ask awaited a passenger plane was accidentally shot down by tehran on january the 8th killing $176.00 people on board to around their knowledge the downing but said that it cannot be blamed for the tragedy alone and that the u.s. has to bear they were sponsibility and canada the country that lost 57 nationals people that were on board the plane also move to pin some of the bullying on the u.s. i think if there were no tensions if there was no escalation recently in the region those canadians would be right now with their families international community is being very very clear both on needing to have a non-nuclear iran while at the same time managing the tensions in the region that
9:04 am
are brought about by us this recent escalation started the u.s. killed iranian top general can seem silly money in a drone strike in baghdad on general. now in the latest twits president donald trump has again leapt to the defense of america's drone strike association of the iranian general area of the u.s. justified his death by presenting him as an imminent threats without actually revealing any details now though the u.s. called the threat relevant the freak news media and the democrat party are working hard to determine whether or not the future touched by terrorists or money was imminent was money team in agreement the answer to both is a strong yes but it doesn't really matter because of his horrible part of the u.s. defense secretary admitted that he did not see any specific evidence to suggest
9:05 am
more attacks were imminent it could reveal that i believe it would have been for embassies the president didn't say when there was a tangible he didn't. a specific piece of evidence what he says he probably he believes are you saying that i meant one i didn't see one with regard to 4 embassies now some countries believe the us is responsible for ask elating this conflict and doing so without hard evidence we discussed solid monies assassination of president trumps claim that he didn't require proof of a threat with a number of middle east experts they told us the us had no right killing a diplomat on foreign soil. u.s. administration's policies as not based on fact it's based on lies and miss statements and it's not based on the international rule of law it's based on to other things wine is the view live that the u.s. is an exceptional country that it is it does not have it is above international law doesn't have to pay attention to the rules and it's also based on the false notion
9:06 am
that the u.s. is the only superpower and a uni polar world u.s. administration still act as if they are the cops of that world they are the bullies on the block and they can take whatever actions that they feel are appropriate for them irrespective of international law america sesame to a foreign diplomat to foreign military general in foreign territory because it didn't like came to put it very simplistically they didn't like can but was the underlying problem what its to stop america tomorrow from saying well we don't light for example mr putin a we don't like leave the russian foreign minister oh old the chinese foreign minister or the british foreign minister for that matter or the french oh anyone if they don't like someone does that means that they can turn around and say oh we're going to organize drone strike on this person and killed him this is the law of the jungle this is not the law of civilized people this is no sane oh more their 1000

9:09 am
a never ending cycle to break the cycle who must give hospitals what they need to continue treating people properly we can make budget cuts but for there we need a centralized national plan health is a national problem and we need to invest money into the system the health minister has though defend. indeed the government's position she's previously promised an additional $70000000.00 euros in aid including a monthly risk premium for start the budget that we have announced $1500000000.00 or 3 years will allow hospitals to renovate themselves to engage in new projects to recruit staff where they're needed and open baz where there is need but this hasn't done enough to quell the anger felt by some medical staff so what will this mean for services well they were they will remain doctors offering medical services what they will no longer be is the backbone of the profession these doctors are resigning from essentially management and did ministry to roles roles that often

jews during the holocaust people who murdered jews and paul graham's at the same time people who collaborated with the nazis and also anti semitic ideologists of the radical ukrainian national movement now the ukrainian government has responded by saying that this is an internal matter that deals with ukrainian politics and that any kind of criticisms that are coming from israel are essentially counterproductive but the israeli foreign ministry has said as you correctly pointed out that anything that belittles the memory of the holocaust in which 6000000 jews died is something that israel and its allies around the world have both a responsibility and a moral obligation to speak out about preserving the memory of the holocaust the battle against anti semitism including the group for creation of. murders of jews are not an internal matter of any country now the israeli and polish ambassadors made public letters that they blow to the ukrainian government criticizing those individuals that it was glorifying in response the creating an ambassador to israel

for new fossil fuel deposits with more than on how eco shaming has become a crucial part of modern day reality at the moment anyway here's our tease earlier patrik 0. do you know gratitude berg by her role as the world's number one a green activist or the number one shaming master well she's really been up to trying to perfect her reputation and both and it's paying off her influences skyrocketing one of the year in sweden person of the year in the time magazine i mean how many teens do you know that told of presidents and prime ministers like that we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and what you can talk about is money and fame or tales of economic growth how do you. an example from just a couple of days ago a single read tweet by greg revived the scandal from 20 and made the man they called the greatest tennis player of all times find excuses for being partners with
9:15 am
a bank here are the shaming lines she read tweet that since 2016 credit suisse has provided 57000000000 to companies looking for new fossil fuel deposits something that is utterly incompatible with climate action roger federer do you endorse this and so roger federer's sponsorship deal with the swiss lender was back in the news and the sports all round mr nice guy had to reassure the public he cares for the environment over that mighty grow i'll show you more of how her shaming powers stretch far beyond the famous un walls but it's just that for now not everyone's so sure that anyone who deals with banks which give loans to non green industries should be publicly shamed public shaming and taking the right people to have stare an opinion the last thing that. stops is being human this crisis but it
9:16 am
doesn't get it so you want to see it the way he thinks he's allowed to it's a free will say meaning it's a visit into law. well together yes but it can be a discussion that's hard to say well maybe we should celebrities should be a bit more careful in picking this ponces ecological issues should people people's attention but not by publicly shaming an individual however it seems neither gratitude nor her fellow activists have any intention of scaling some of that shaming down yeah why do it if it works so well so what can you be shamed for nowadays stay away from anything that house to do with fossil fuels even if you're choosing a bank shame on you if you fly never heard that was a sin well run has been peddling the flight shame movement on line for a while now why can't you stop flying on planes it's easy. how about you stay
9:17 am
home and take some climate action instead climate compensation he's the planting of trees enough to excuse your flights while some folks who've already tried to paralyze a london airport the world's aviation authorities even trying to stand up for its industry. we will launch a very very big to explain when we have done what we're doing and we intend to do in the future activists are currently after german engineering giant siemens for going ahead to fulfill a contract with a coal mine in australia what for now coal or fossil fuels altogether aren't legal right it all makes you wonder what's next what you're going to do when grettir comes for you will it get to the point when miners and their families are booed at for what they do for a living just a short while ago we had at least here in germany eco shaming against people with
9:18 am
s.u.v.s. and off and on we have it for like people that are taking trips in aircraft seems to be a moving target it seems to go from plastic bags to beef to. the trees to coal mining i guess the people are so frustrated they feel they have to do something even if it's almost irrelevant like in the case of siemens right now who's accused of making railway signalling equipment which is being used by the mining company i mean that's a pretty. big stretch to go from the zeeman signalling equipment to say that has something to do with the climate problem and the forest fires a growing army of activists would say the whole of mankind has no other choice but to use some of gratis shaming skills if it once a future there are still probably many of those who wouldn't mind a little more green tolerance from master to burke and co. any.

9:23 am
abundance of caution secretary asper has taken these actions to protect our servicemen and women. middle east analyst shai franklin spoke about it and thinks the education people receive the govt can do is what's encouraging violence if you take an average saudi military officer i would actually wonder what wouldn't drive them to this extreme the. research by the gulf affairs has shown that the textbooks from 1st grade through 12th grade all the saudi public schools basically teach demonization of jews christians non wahhabi muslims apostates people who don't observe the very strict dictates of the wahhabi religion in which is the saudi the main saudi religion that is continued then in some of the official literature that the saudi military forces read there's a lot of reporting about the what you would call a blind spot at specific to the trumpet ministration but if you look back every
9:24 am
administration has pretty much approached the saudi regime the same way there was very little pressure on them to change what they do on the ground in terms of basic human rights in terms of the incitement that i mention in their textbooks in their defense establishment which u.s. officials have known about this incitement in the military establishment for years . so far so pretty picture now if you're into panders you love this with the festive season over it's time to take down all those decorations and get rid of the 3 blue one resident moskos zeus found a rather creative approach to the annual january cleanup i'm not sure if he's actually matter not you take your own view when you see it.

9:26 am
when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. just one magic bullet you could actually come up with some of the top of these baby bonds talking about ways we get access capital in capitalism cavil's important so we could actually have programs that actually help folks who want to do that but when you give everybody a $1000.00 i'm a poor person i'm going to consume that and you're rich you're going to invest that . the spirit is going to grow because you're not using your money to consume you're literally buying more crazy things and then my landlord knowing that i've got a $1000.00 let me just go raise my roots so then you get your inflation going on and there are none.
9:27 am
this is happening around the world and covering all aspects of business and how it affects us all. and i'm bridgeboro in washington here's a look at what we have on deck for you today we are strictly approaching the january 15th signing of the bay's one trade deal between the u.s. and china but this is just the 1st hurdle in a long process to suit tensions sparked by the trade war. the trading and peter schiff of euro pacific capital are both on and it breaks down the negotiations as technology continues to progress so too have concerns for privacy let's get a journalist spends one joins us to take a look at the privacy in the sector and later as we continue to grow more and more in their factories some regulators competition molly barrows contributed to american lawyer take a look at how india is looking to take on amazon and wal-mart in the empire state
9:28 am
building the brand today with stories. as markets worldwide got a lift from the announcement that a phase one trade deal between china and the u.s. will be signed on january 15th china remains distinctly unenthusiastic the. this lack of enthusiasm from beijing is something reminiscent of the last time we thought a deal with on the table got cold at the last minute and keep in mind this phase one is by no means a resolution to the trade war significant challenges still remain ahead and china still hasn't publicly made any commitments to u.s. demands these ag quotas as we've reiterated are unreasonable targets for china to meet china is should note of caution ahead of this week's signing on social media saying the quote trade war is not over yet and that just the 1st round of the game doesn't sound very optimistic here so we shall see what transpires on the 15th if it gets done phase one will be optically pleasing for the trumpet ministration despite heavy doubts of whether the agreement will be implemented in full by both
9:29 am
countries know that phase one only covers the low hanging fruit and if china and the us can even come to an agreement here phase 2 which will involve industrial policy ip items that touch on solvency well that will be near impossible and while fears of an escalation between the us and iran seem to dissipate in the market president issued a new sanction on iran to punish the regime and crack down on a few remaining sources export revenue the latest sanctions target metals as well as construction manufacturing textiles and mining making basically the entire iranian economy also limits to any nation that has diplomatic ties with the us china is now caught in the middle as it has long been iran's largest trading partner maintaining a friendly cooperation spokesperson going to address the new sanctions monday in beijing. for a long time china and iran have been conducting mutually beneficial and friendly cooperation in various fields under the framework of international law it is lawful
9:30 am
and justifiable and not harming the interests of any other and hardly it certainly should be respected in our tent we urge the u.s. . to stop on the wrong practice of sanctions against chinese businesses and we will firmly dip into the law and interest of chinese don't see anything that we china is now calling for the u.s. to immediately halt sanctions on chinese companies for maintaining business ties with iran as a reminder iran's critical oil exports were already sanctioned in 2019 but india and china still remain importers given their necessity for cheap crude chinese foreign ministry said beijing opposes unilateral sanctions and called for washington to stop punishing chinese companies for importing these basic necessary commodities. and boeing's new chief executive officer david calhoun has officially taken the helm of the embattled aerospace giant calhoun who served as a member of the company's board of directors for many years was put in place following.
