2:01 pm
all right it's time to boost your new i q. foreign ministers from the g. 7 nations are meeting in person in london england the objective is to lay down the groundwork for when g 7 leaders meet in the u.k. in june and from what we've seen so far we can expect a lot of talk about china and russia artie's alex myla bitch has the story. together but distanced for the 1st time in 2 years foreign ministers from g 7 nations are meeting this time in london well the covert 19 pandemic and climate change are expected to take up much of the agenda discussions about china and russia are also making the top of the list with the u.s. and u.k. taking the lead on this subject any country. china or otherwise takes actions that
2:02 pm
challenge or undermine or seek to erode that rules based order and not make good on the commitments that they've made. to that order we will we will stand up and defend the order but what's going to change is russia's behavior again as a p 5 member of the security council against the basic norms of international law while some see the claims of veering from basic norms are hypocritical at best russia has called allegations from the west anti russian hysteria in china says the west is a bully nonetheless the push continues the u.k. has invited non g 7 allies such as australia south korea india and south africa to the meeting in what some say is an effort to rally the nations to create a united voice against china and russia say by them that said as both the u.s. and u.k. emphasized that diplomacy is not an off the table very well and it is the preferred
2:03 pm
method to resolve the international issues but we are not looking to escalate we would prefer to have a more stable more predictable relationship and if russia moves in that direction. so will we and i think president biden will have an opportunity when he meets with president putin. to talk about that directly we will look to the opportunities we want a constructive relationship with china but on things whether it's intellectual property theft or standing up for human rights in hong kong ancient junk we see we're going to be very clear on our values and sources say that. one objective of the upcoming g. 7 summit is to counter the narrative that the west is in decline and that china and russia are getting geo political clout the g. 7 summit is scheduled to take place in the united kingdom next month for r t i'm alex miller look at each. and for more on this will go to our panel today a former professor now managing editor of covert action magazine and author of the
2:04 pm
russians are coming again jeremy koos rob is joining us and host of news with rick sanchez mr rick sanchez jeremy 1st over to you in pretty plain language i think secretary of state tony blinken and his u.k. counterpart dominic rab said that the main goal for the g. 7 right now is to contain russia and china what can we extrapolate from that kind of rhetoric well one thing that's not widely being reported as too naval vessels have been sent into the black sea it has a blinking is slated to travel to ukraine with victoria nuland later in the week i believe so i mean there's talk of you know that we don't want war i mean that's seen as a very threatening action you know it's russia was sending ships into the gulf of mexico americans would be up in arms so i think we've seen you know a very aggressive stance towards russia as well as china that's
2:05 pm
a very dangerous right now by the you know by an administration continuing from what's gone on for at least the last 8 years and rick you have covered this sort of stuff for a long time i mean do you recall a time where the former g 8 that used to include russia would use this kind of language and how does that translate to the average joe who is hearing this kind of i guess tough talk on the news. you know it's interesting i like the way he was issuing that question because it makes me think of my own life and let's not let's face it i'm no spring chicken anymore and so i've been around for quite a while and throughout my life what i've seen is that when i was a very young man the world seemed to constantly be on the edge of war it was always about possibly starting a nuclear war and we all were being taught to duck and cover and then something wonderful happened and that is that there seemed to be some type of movement toward
2:06 pm
peace between russia and the united states and china and so that cold war mentality has been dissipating throughout most of my life but i'm 62 years old in the past oh who last decade i see the start to go in. the other direction it's almost like we're bracing for some kind of being on the edge of nuclear proliferation recently embrace being a cold war with countries who are reaching out to us and saying we want to be on your team i mean we're looking at lot of the putin right now but i'm here putin has offered to join nato he says why do you guys want to be against me i want to be a part of what you're doing and russia is not with us all what a country offers an olive branch the least you can do is hear them out and we're living in a time in the united states be it your politics or something else where we don't
2:07 pm
want to hear people are we've chosen that your good or your bad and that's the way it's going to stay and it's not going to change it and it's not in our and it's wrong now and jeremy also ahead of this trip to london tony blinken accuse china repression at home and aggression a bride now 1st of all is that true i mean given a lot of people could say that this is hypocritical thanks it's china who is working on economic prosperity projects like the new silk road and a lot of time i checked it wasn't china who invaded the middle east. yeah i mean if you look at you know xinjiang and the muslim issue i mean look at how the united states has dealt you know the war on terror they bomb countries you know afghanistan the media barely reports on the human costs of the afghan war i mean china is not bombings in g.m. and you know it's in a look at an africa i mean chinese do a lot of infrastructure projects in africa and the united states has been building
2:08 pm
drone bases and militarizing african continent so you know it's just divorced from reality and if you look at human rights unfortunately the united states record has you know greatly to be desired whether it's the prison system here in the united states or whether it's u.s. action in country like afghanistan or iraq or libya so china china obviously sees a double standard with these comments and sees how human rights become very politicized and used just to mobilize public opinion against them and that's part of what rick was discussing this thrust towards confrontation of war when these are countries who express openness towards cooperation and towards working together to solve global problems which is what we should be doing well jeremy further to that i mean you hear people on capitol hill saying you know america shouldn't be a nation building but then you compare it to places like china like you said that are investing in infrastructure projects all around the world shouldn't america
2:09 pm
probably do some nation building after much of our military has gone in to destroy those nations. well i think you know joe biden kind of woke up late those of the conversation in january between joe biden and boris johnson where they joe biden said well look at china's one belt one road we need our own one belt one road and it's kind of waking up late in the game but maybe they'll move in this direction you know and see that china's approach to the so-called developing world is a lot better that it brings benefit i mean you know china you know has some exploitive practices like in africa you know they have interests the mineral wealth . the same time they have you know helped to uplift various countries and economies and they won a lot of support and now africa around the world and i think you know by then johnson realized that maybe now those sorts of sorts move in that direction instead of the u.s. and dating and bombing so many countries and building more you know drone bases
2:10 pm
yeah absolutely rick secretary blinken is able to use the kind of language that we're hearing him say against china because he has the support of the u.s. ministry media i mean everywhere you look china is being accused of genocide at the weavers with no physical evidence and as they say no body no crime so is this part of the u.s. playbook to continue the trump policy on china but under biden. one of the saddest things that's happening right now in this particular generation that we're living through is that we're witnessing the demise of journalists. in an adversarial relationship with their government that is what we're trying to do that is what we're supposed to do we are supposed to have a healthy adversarial relationship with the government of the united sticks we have
2:11 pm
failed in that mission instead what we have become is. the u.s. media julies its government rather than question its government the only time they question it is if they're doing it for ideological reasons based on their particular identity i am a side of the sea will question the republican president fox news will question the democratic president but neither one is really questioning for the sake of what's healthy for our country in other words there was a time when journalism in america meant that if we thought a car country was doing something wrong these are the vietnam we question the actions of the naacp we said to our own government you're wrong and i want you to prove to us why you're doing what you're doing today anyone that we go into is a good war and enemy that our leaders say isn't their enemy we just say i os are ok
2:12 pm
i guess there are adamant that's wrong and they're giving them carte blanche to do what they're doing and it's all agreed when they know that the media as not going to hold them to account for these politicians or run amok well put gentlemen carry could drive and rick sanchez thank you both for weighing in. thank you. and venezuela has released a group of american oil ringback executives from prison 3 years after being incarcerated on charges including corruption and money laundering now their release actually signals a possible attempt by nicolas maduro to reach out to the biden administration argues john how do you has more. the so-called citgo 6 have been released from prison in venezuela more than 3 years after being arrested all 6 have been confined to house arrest at least for now anyway 5 of the former oil executives are naturalized u.s. citizens and one is a permanent u.s. resident back in november 2017 the executives were ordered to attend
2:13 pm
a budget meeting at the headquarters of the venezuelan state oil company p d.v.s. a which on sicko when they arrived mass security agents then jumped and arrested the men they were charged with corruption money laundering and embezzlement among other things all of which they denied the u.s. has repeatedly called for their release saying they were jailed unlawfully back in 2019 the 6 men were also released and confined to house arrest but were thrown back in jail the very same day when vend president trump invited venezuelan opposition leader juan why don't to the white house this latest release is being seen as a goodwill gesture by nicolas maduro to the biden administration as it reviews america's policies towards venezuela but as of now washington doesn't appear to be easing u.s. sanctions on the beleaguered country venezuela continues to struggle economically with the cove in 1000 pandemic only making matters worse before the pandemic exacerbated venezuela's already fledgling economy the u.s.
2:14 pm
sent humanitarian aid there but it was stock at the colombian border a new report by the inspector general at the u.s. agency for international development raises doubts however if the aid was driven by venezuela's humanitarian needs as the country was gripped by mass demonstrations and violent protests or more so a u.s. push for a change in venezuela's government the report reads to address urgent humanitarian needs and restore democratic governance to venezuela the u.s. government's key foreign policy goals were to one support why doe's legitimacy as the interim president of venezuela and to increase pressure on model. to step down as president accordingly usa prioritised aid to the venezuelan people in coordination with the interim president the report may not come as too much of a surprise though as the truth administration adamantly supported why do know the question now will the by the new administration stay on the same political course for our 2 john hardy. and president joe biden is raising the refugee cap
2:15 pm
262500 this year the president announced the move on monday increasing it from the trumpet ministrations original $15000.00 limit but biden also announced the goal is to admit 125000 refugees by the year 2022. and still ahead we will check in on the corona virus pandemic where the national vaccine campaign continues we'll get you a full report and later at the sports h.q. regina han takes us to italy's top soccer league where it will be the end of the road for one club and remember to keep up with all the latest news or catch up with anything you might have missed download the portable t.v. apps and you can watch us whenever you want we'll be right back.

america's lawyer. over the latest coven 800 numbers now worldwide those cases are now topping 153000000 without 3000000 reported deaths the u.s. is still leading the way with the most confirmed cases a little over 32000000 here followed by india and then brazil and here stateside the death toll is still hovering around 577000. and the u.s. is about to expand its vaccination campaign to millions more people the f.d.a. is expected to authorize pfizer vaccines 'd for kids ages 12 to 15 years old as early as next week and while this announcement isn't sitting well with a lot of parents as trinity chavez tells us there's another group of americans choosing to opt out of covert shots. today vaccinations for teens and children on
2:19 pm
the horizon the u.s. food and drug administration set to authorize emergency use of the pfizer vaccine for analyzed ages 12 to 15 as early as next week a move that would make some middle and all high schoolers eligible to get vaccinated in the u.s. something experts say would be a big step in raising immunity levels across the country pfizer recently announcing the trial results showing the vaccine is highly effective for that age group possibly even more than for adults according to pfizer at the end of march a clinical trial involving 226012 to 15 year olds showed 100 percent efficacy and is well tolerated the f.d.a. now reviewing that data if it's approved the centers for disease control and prevention would hold an emergency meeting and issue recommendations the announcement comes as health officials are worried axion hesitancy could make reaching herd immunity in the u.s. difficult if not impossible there are concerns now amplified as new data indicates
2:20 pm
children in this country represent 22 percent of new cases reported in this past week alone according to the c.d.c. the average number of covert 1000 vaccines given per day in the u.s. they'll 27 percent from a high of 3260000 on april 11th to 2370000 last tuesday a shocking report by the washington post found that the number of police officers getting vaccinated is lower or about the same as the general public in las vegas 39 percent of the employed police officers in the metropolitan police department have received at least one dose compared to the more than 50 percent of eligible adults nationwide meantime in atlanta 36 percent of sworn officers have been vaccinated while ohio's largest police force the columbus division a mere 28 percent of those employed reported receiving a shot and despite a massive effort by the pentagon to promote safety and efficacy of cope in $1000.00 vaccines the u.s. military's opt out rate is about 33 percent while nearly 40 percent of u.s.
2:21 pm
marines are declining. vaccinations reporting in new york trying to teach others r.t. . and dan mark will no longer include the johnson and johnson kogan vaccine to its national campaign the country's health authorities says the move is being made in response to concerns surrounding the side effects involving those blood clot denmark also announced last month that they would stop using astra zeneca vaccine all together over another link to rare blood clots. in the e.u. is looking to open its borders after more than a year of pandemic isolation this comes as the european commission on monday proposed easing travel restrictions on foreign citizens but only for those who have been fully vaccinated with authorized brands with all the details now here's artie's peter oliver of things ever is easy as it may see when it comes to getting a unified e.u. proposal passed all 27 member states on monday the european commission put forward
2:22 pm
their proposals for what essentially amounts to a new vaccine passport they'll be discussing that further on choose day but it's an attempt to open up the 27 member states to non-essential travel and to tourism tourism of course the absolute lifeblood of many of the southern european countries economies got the e.u. commission suggesting is that it's anybody who's been fully vaccinated with a job that's approved by both the european medicines agency and the world health organization they should be allowed to come into the e.u. until the digital green certificate is operational member states should be able to accept it if it is from nonnie you countries based on national or taken into account the ability to verify the authenticity validity and integrity of the satish record and whether it contains all relevant data. well since it was announced it's raised an awful lot of questions with some critics pointing out the well some of
2:23 pm
the points are pretty vague particularly when it comes to the fact that we don't know how long somebody who's been vaccinated is immune to the covert virus for we just simply haven't helped about that they sell on that right now there's also the risks of creating a 2 tier society between those that have the vaccine those that are waiting for the vaccine and those that for any number of medical reasons can't have those particular vaccines now there's also the world health organization chipping in on this saying they don't think these type of passports are a good idea because as far as the w.h.o. are concerned it gives a false sense of security. but the present time it is the world health organizations position but national forest east should not introduce requirements of proof of covert 19 vaccination for international travel as a condition for departure or entry considering that there is limited availability
2:24 pm
of vaccines preferential vaccination of travelers could result in another quote supplies of vaccines for priority populations consider the high risk of severe covert 19 disease well earlier this year the idea of vaccine passports didn't prove all that popular with people in france and denmark we saw protests against the plans then this also questions over what this will mean for those who have been vaccinated with jobs that haven't already been approved by the european medicines agency the russian sputnik vaccine for example we are expecting sputnik to get e.m.e.a. approval sometime in may but what does that mean for those that have already received that also what does that mean for the millions and millions of doses of sputnik that have been purchased by e.u. member states ready for use now the european commission doesn't have the power to be able to tell a member state who can come in and who can't come in to their country what they're
2:25 pm
looking to try and do at the moment is get a unified agreement throughout the $27.00 and they certainly isn't one of those just yet so until there is it does seem like each individual e.u. member state will continue to have their their own systems in place for example right now if you want to fly into greece you wouldn't have to be fully vaccinated but as long as you could provide say a test result that showed that you hadn't tested positive for covert then you'd be allowed to arrive still a lot of legs to run on whether we'll get a unified covert passport across europe just yet though. all right let's head over to regina hamm of the sport h.q. now regina there's a shifting around of clouds and italy's top soccer league right now it is. wristing mixin is not always a good thing in lee's hopley which is set out parma has been enjoying their stint there however this season they find itself in the brink of really geisha in and hope that they're saving greece was going to be a win over trina who was also facing potential relegation but you know coming out
