5:00 pm
the, the the, the food in as cool. his optimism as he wraps up his landmark geneva summit with jag by your billing. you know, there was no hospitality on the country meeting was very constructive. i have no illusions following the meeting in the old or new. they can't be an illusion as a tool died in the same rather less off the semester, even appearing to confuse pace in the truck. i caught part of prejudice and press conference and, and at the end of his nice conference thereafter, the summit, joe biden question to report his claim that the u. s. president would actually
5:01 pm
change planning a behavior plan pages behavior mr. the news welcome. you're watching naughty international now constructed with i've danny hostility, you don't need to to be when he's talks, joe biden, who praise the personal interaction is both spoke in post summit. so low news conferences. so let's get the latest then from switzerland, a more from our team in geneva. the, who's me welcome back to geneva. what long take for that he has
5:02 pm
been a really long couple of weeks. i'll hold on high school that falls around. of course, the big russia us summit was building. now it's over, don, president biden, president putin, they sat down, they talked, i'm really the bottom line is look like ties between the 2 countries are better today than they watch more and really looks like the best you can. that's all we could have hopeful they were never going to leave. this is the best of makes, they would never going to move mountains in terms of the problems that exist. but what we have seen is them say that they'll read ignite diplomatic relations, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not to say that, but at some point it's going to happen. we'll see a russian, i'm but the best in washington us, some of that back in moscow. the very basics of diplomacy is going to be existing again when it comes to just how they viewed one another. we heard from both president saying that yeah, with a positive attitude,
5:03 pm
we heard from joe biden saying that it wasn't ever going to be friendly, really. it but it was, it was positive, it was certainly positive. and we heard from me a person saying that it wasn't again, it wasn't context. that wasn't somebody scoring more points that i wouldn't know when a profi the job wasn't to get one off from someone else. it was sent pete to become interesting communication. able to have an open frank dialogue to dissolve to in the future. and to do that without any hostility, and that's what we had from the year. but when you get from the student, there was no hospitality on the country meeting was very constructive. our views differ many issues, but i believe both sides have shown a willingness to understand each other and to bring out different positions close together. there wasn't any, any strident action taken, or we disagreed. i disagree, stated where it was where he disagreed, he stated. but it was not done in
5:04 pm
a hyperbolic atmosphere. i have no illusions following the meeting, neither old nor new. there can't be any illusions at all by set in vain, russia. and by the way, that was a joke. both presidents have now left. we watched both aeroplanes fly away, we've actually had a pretty good view and it comes to plain spot. i mean, i know the geneva runway, like no one else travel you controls gotten nothing on may. the lucian 96 isn't blowing. busy 747, therefore, now i can see them from about 10 kilometers away out of new stream. but actually the security has been something so know to something that we noticed 2 days ago when we for the soldiers, we saw the police, we saw the boat that we're going mad on the, on the lake today we will say, so helicopters flying overhead. it's actually been quite exciting. we've got to be a perfect view of the sunset. so over the a just behind your engine, even city looking resplendent,
5:05 pm
it has been roasting holes. but i want to say it's pathetic fantasy absolutely perfect for the heated tubes. and i think that probably was heated by himself gave an unclean that there were some things that he was not willing to negotiate. personally. also said that you know what, we have different views on this. we don't have to look i to i but we still have to protect our own people and protect global security. they both said that it's neat power. they obviously shut that responsibility. definitely that was an i see that it was almost like a business deal, but they had to think very programatically about the relationship moving forward. now course the best pass and place to taught us every about, especially president putin's press conference, was more at god who himself was literally in the hall. i believe he's got a chance to president putin. a question himself, among the difficult questions that vladimir putin faced, that which joe barton had the good fortune to escape with questions about the opposition that we pointed out to the protesters,
5:06 pm
the rest of following the event and capitol hill that they faced as much as 25 years in jail, for you 5 years in jail, for a political proto the year. but do budget said that there's new comparison to because they're criminal, but a leg saying the bali who was convicted and was serving a 2 year sentence for the violation of his early release. so he was convicted by russian court and vladimir putin. he says that, you know, americans are comparing what happened on capitol hill to the treatment of election yvonne and saying there's nothing in common. but for the nation, you just, you never going on non systemic opposition. and the citizen you've mentioned this person knew full well that he was violating russian law. and he knew full well, but there was a warrant for his arrest. nevertheless, he came back to russia and he deliberately wanted to be arrested. so he did what he
5:07 pm
wanted to do. what else can we say hill? one of the things both leaders agreed on is to borrow job buttons, words. they need to be rules of the road. so that as a rule to how both countries should behave in case they come into this agreement over something that's a dispute, you know, our rights conflict, how to resolve them as civilized partners. i wouldn't say freds it's, it's far too early, but they need a framework of how to behave. and for that to happen, those countries need to be held equally accountable. it wouldn't do a fun country gets away with doing something and the other doesn't feel bad. and said, phrase that caused quite a stir both online, and he said, how would the united states feel if it was she by the rest of the world as meddling in foreign elections, which much of the world. she's the united states as do it. but they say that mapleton was us, russia is accused of being predictable. by the way,
5:08 pm
how is russia planning to change? here, vladimir answered smartly, was going to know that when she told story, she's given your name. you said the west believes that russian foreign policy is unpredictable. well, let me send the park back to you. the u. s. leaving the abm treaty in 2002 with absolutely unpredictable. what were they doing? it for that's undermine the basis of international stability in the area of strategic security. then withdrawal from the i n f treaty in 2019, there's nothing stable about that. the open sky treaty withdrawal, there's nothing stable about it and almost nothing left. thank god. in the field of strategic stability, mr biden has taken a completely adequate decision to prolong the new start treaty for 5 years. if you take the situation with ukraine with crimea, that's where this all starts, right? what stable about endorsing the qu, they saw when the ex president jacobi agreed with all the demands of the opposition
5:09 pm
. he was basically ready to abandon power, declared new elections in about 3 months. no, the blood filled crew was needed. that led to known consequences the southeast of the country than crimea. and do you think it's us who predictably, no, i don't think so. we just left the president also lost and revealed somewhat personal things like may prudent say. and joe biden confirming that they talked about barton's mother, joe biden bowed up his child with something you wouldn't do, you know, if he was sitting next to somebody you disliked or even detested. so it shows the sort of a measure of trust that has developed a night through i understand that that has developed between the 2 leaders. and here of job button was out for the latter someone that he can trust which is you know. busy a question that he evasive he wouldn't answer yes or no, but that was similar questions body sees when he looks at jo buttons,
5:10 pm
eyes new school can yet know several years ago when you met dan vice president vida . and he said, you look into your eyes and didn't see a soul there. when you looked into his eyes, they just say a person you could work with. and this is not the 1st time i've heard this story. although i do not remember it at all. but i admit it might actually have happened. it seems to me that president, i didn't, and i spoke the same language and that does not necessarily mean we have to look into each other's souls or rise or swear, our turn or friendship. we protect the interests of our countries, and these relations are always pragmatic. at the end of the day, what happened here in geneva, the entire summit was basically a trust building exercise. very few specifics with agreed upon, if any. they agreed to talk about many things to work on many things, but ultimately it is a trust exercise. it is about laying a foundation on which russia the united states can rebuild relations. i wouldn't
5:11 pm
say build on relations because there are much left to speak of their, their in tatters. whether it works, your body says we'll find out within the year whether look the results from, from all the top from all the grievance for the criticism, the both sides had for each other. but the message is the preliminary. it was successful. almera garcia that he spent the day in the villa where those talks were taking place. not everybody in the gym. my call is, is nicely behaved as it was the hottest ticket in town for jim to get as close as he could to get your tamar in there for the shots, and perhaps get a question and asked about the cough to either food and old biden. it actually go out of hand, it will be soldier, and that's pushing and shoving it also mentally, security say in get out. the dog does
5:12 pm
little job and raised voices like i wasn't just before the summit. we also did see a bit of drama as president biden was actually leaving his press conference. these were some, well, this was a rather sharp exchange that he had with a cnn journalist. why are you saying behavior, mister president? the was the rest of the company. just stated also of course one topic that bite and did raise during the summer that he'd been really was threatening to raise for weeks. that was something that really grabbed the headlines was the issue of human rights. he did talk
5:13 pm
a lot about how do he is an american dna. he said, how could i be the president without raising it? and he did, of course, reiterate his promise very unto trump. yeah. promise about being america's back to, to full. he didn't, you'd raise that, it was raised in the press conference to and this is exactly what he had to say about human rights on free speech. how could i be the president of the united states of america, and not speak out against the violation human rights? i told him that, unlike other countries, including russia, were uniquely a product of an idea. i also raised the ability of radio free europe, radio, liberty to operate, and the importance of a free press and freedom of speech. well, when it comes to the relationship between the 2, this was billed as a heavy weight clash of the titans. perhaps we weren't expecting any major results, but certainly looking much between 2 political big guns. what they did say,
5:14 pm
both of them was that they talk to not just the president biden, the president, but joe biden to mon, vladimir burton demand. both saying that there was, i said know how still it is we heard earlier on when they agreed one things that they could cooperate on. they talked about those when they disagree. they made sure that both of their points were made as forcefully as they could. jo by the u. s. president saying though, while it was over record, it's unlikely that they're going to be embracing one another and swaying side to side anytime soon. i don't think he's looking for a cold war or the united states. i don't think it's about, as i said to him, i said your generation of mine are about 10 years apart. this is not a could by moment is used to say back in the sixty's united states like less huggy love each other. but it's clearly not in anybody's interest. your countries are mine for us to be in a situation where we're in a new cold war. of course it wouldn't be a terabyte of parents. what about
5:15 pm
a couple of gas? what would the you chip channel if he didn't do that, he was caught early on with some notes on his lot. what people are cooling sheet sheets up. she was sitting in the protocol room with president putin. you've also got caught reading off a prompt just before the press conference before he started taking questions from the john this one point. he also seemed to get confused about who he'd been sitting across from the table with for all those 3 hours. it was his thoughts on it as since taking office so. so maybe got a bit while i caught part or president trump press conference. the tone of the entire meetings i guess was total 4 hours was was what was was good positive. and i'm wondering if there was anything that you emerged from in the discussion that made you think that should take my code on our defense, our intelligence and our foreign well our from my foreign minister was in for
5:16 pm
administering my secretary state was with me the whole time, you can decide what time you're going to weigh, or your advisors can tell you, aware of time that's going to be a message. but if you can't hide the a grimace, you can't hide an expression on your face. you can try sometime back when, when putin and donald trump met, that was very interesting in that donald trump was the unseasoned politician. so he was much more fun to read because at that stage it was early on in his presidency. he wasn't a will not that he became very refined, but he was a lot less refined in that he even became. and you could see a lot more going on there. and the contrast between the 2, putin who's, who's been around a long time and very sees and in this regard, you could see this contrast here. both are very, very well trained in this regard. biden's been around from before. god probably add, but you know, and, and he knows the stuff he might be doing very well. i think on the international
5:17 pm
stage, but he doesn't, oh, it is harder to read and we've got to look at those clues a lot, a lot more closely. we saw the cheerleaders standing on the steps of the village at the ground, with the swiss president in between them. now this is a sponsor, i remember very well from my childhood. me one of my best mates, andrew. we were forever fighting one another. one of our mothers would end up standing between us and going you to be friends. what does that mean? i'm not reading far too much into this. what was that? well, you know, for what can you tell us about the language of the latest? in fact, your, your analogy around your childhood. i think it's very, very apt because what we see here is exactly that. and when i saw the expression on biden's face when he smiled and, and greeted it was almost like you were a kid. and maybe you were on stage and your mom was in the audience saying, smile while, remember to smile. and that was the sense that i got it. it wasn't a response, it was more of
5:18 pm
a i'm told to do this. i think that the handshake as well, was choreographed. we knew they both knew that we're going to shake hands. there wasn't a discussion on the stairs around that that has already happened and bob couldn't wait to, to lean forward to, to shake hands because that's what he was told to do. so that was something very, very awkward as though these, these 2 men, in fact were children. now we think back when, when biden made a comment to that, that awful comment about putin being a killer. he made it publicly when, when putin was asked about it, he said, well, when i was young and we were in the courtyard playing a, you know, we used to 20 each other and i would, it takes one to know one. so think about that a lot of the childhood stuff where one person is trying to get on top will get the better of the ada. that was one person who apparently in this world is also very interested in shouldn't us ties a very small person,
5:19 pm
a little 9 year old canadian go, she featured and a question to president putin on the conference. let's listen quickly. it's great that you will, 9 year old daughter is interested in this issue and the answer is very simple. you have to look around and say, you see how beautiful this world is and adults, the leaders of the 2 countries, the largest nuclear power, is a meeting in order to make this world a safe, reliable, prosperous home for all inhabitants of our planet. well, that's it from us. it has a wild ride for the last few days. i'll tell you that we came, we were given such a beautiful view. we will give an unbelievable guess. i got to work with pizza. i've had wonderful company. we've had some last. we've taken care of some serious business and other people yet. thank you so much. all of you who've joined us here on our tv and from geneva, goodbye. ah.
5:20 pm
okay, well let's have a look at some other news than from today because most goes, man, has a nice mandatory cobra. shorts for 60 percent of service sector work is along with transport and education staff is after a recent surgeon daily cases. cranky has more the mayor is pretty much making it clear that the russian capital has unleashed a real war against covert. so what are these places and organizations where more than half of staff members? 60 percent to be precise, will now be subject to mandatory vaccination that is kept phase restaurants bars. so pretty much the entire food industry, beauty salons, jim's spas. besides this theaters, museums, libraries, also transport facilities and the department of banks where the staff members directly deal with the clients and the mayor even set the deadlines for these
5:21 pm
organizations that will have to provide their workers with the vaccine. now for the 1st component, that will be july 15th and it will be august the 15th for the 2nd component. now you might want to ask, what about the medical exemptions? well, if for this or that reason you are exempt, if you have allergies, if you're pregnant, if you have the chronic diseases that isn't something to be matched with the vaccine, no matter where you work, an exemption means no job and also have to tell you that for now, this is only a rule that will be applied to the russian capital, so it's not yet happening on a federal level in russia. now we heard from the head of the moscow government survey so bad, and here's how he just defied his decision. it's up to each person, whether it's a vaccinate or not, is their decision,
5:22 pm
as long as they're sitting at home. but when you go out to public places and get into contact with other people consciously or unconsciously, you become complicit in the spread of the disease. if you work in an organization that says an unrestricted range of people, then during an epidemic, it's definitely not just your business, no matter what personal types of equipment you use. well, i can tell you that for, for 5, possibly even 6 months, the situation with the new corona virus cases in moscow has been a rather stable. i remember looking at the numbers almost every day. it was plus 2000 roughly. they plus $3000.00. but again, if think of moscow to massively huge city, perhaps sounds like just a drop in the ocean. however, in mid june, the curve really started going up rapid the on sunday. that was more than plus $7000.00 cases in one single day in moscow. these are the numbers that we haven't seen since the end of last year. now it got down to a bit under $6000.00,
5:23 pm
but still this is an impressive spike compared to what we had in spring. so the moscow city authority said that they had to take action only a few days ago, new measures were announced. in fact, these are old measures. these are just the ones that have been lifted. now the word mandatory may sound scary to some. and clearly some of the critical voices will be getting louder now. but i can tell you that in that statement from the moscow mayor office, the officials are reminding that the workers from some of the sectors such as teachers and doctors, they have been used to obligatory vaccine from other highly infectious diseases such as measles, for example. and this is something that's been there for decades, if not centuries. so the anti cobit vaccine will only be an addition to that list. we have asked the people in the streets of moscow, what they make of the slate is decision. some people are happy about it,
5:24 pm
some are not welcoming that at all. so there's a whole variety of opinions still deserve it. if it's obligatory, then i have to get vaccinated. but if it's voluntary, then i'd rather refuse. i'm scared and vaccinated already. the main thing is for less people to get if that helps, then i'm all for it's many people don't understand that this could be necessary. but for now, this is a very questionable story and i'm concerned, i think everyone should make their own decision. it's their personal health. after all, i will not get vaccinated. work with masks and gloves. we get this constantly. yes, we do, and so far. thank god, then negative probable frank with that report micro biology professors simon clark does believe we could see similar measures happening elsewhere. well i figure find the number, the number is growing and they will bump along mostly to go up and down in the coming weeks and months. i think that some people will really begin to start the
5:25 pm
mom. this from me, from municipal work from people who are essentially by the state, and we are already seeing it. you're seeing it in, in moscow, but we're seeing other parts of the world as well. so i think we're moscow leads others will fall, or you could argue that it is a small price to pay compared to letting cove. it spreads through the population and check out that would be an even bigger drag corruption has been rampant across europe. during the pandemic, according to the survey by the global watched oak transparency, international, and 3 quarters of the 40000 respondents, the same situation is actually getting worse with more in the story. charlotte davinsky, a new report by transparency international has found the view of national authorities and institutions is 44 with more than 60 percent of those who took part
5:26 pm
thing corruption in the government was a major problem. but of all the issues faced by you citizens, one of the focus elements was access to health care during the 19 pandemic. the report describes that as being a hot spot for corruption. wherever you go, you must pay up. and if you can't pay, you died before your time, me and it happened to me several years, but i had to pay money just to be seen by doctors. they would not touch me, otherwise you pay, you move forward. you don't pay you are left behind across the things that people said they paid a bry perfect health care, but bills at the for and in some countries it appears that bribery was rife, and money wasn't the only leverage for getting treatment. almost a 3rd said that they used a personal connection to receive medical attention. please. i'm not surprised.
5:27 pm
medical attention is reserved for the leads which is absolutely and acceptable, especially in the been damaged. we can't have this hierarchy of who has access to health care. no, that's good. well, this finding is not a surprise, but it disturbs me, you repeat, stays, shouldn't even be charging money for health care. i do not think that fruit ever get rid of corruption, a startling and concerning trend during a health fun demik during a health crisis using personal connections to access public services can be as damaging as paying bribes. lives can be lost when connected. people get a coffee at 19 vaccine or medical treatment before those with more urgent needs. it's crucial that governments across d e o redoubled their efforts to ensure a fair and equitable recovery from the ongoing pandemic. all of face highlights
5:28 pm
just how fragile the use mechanisms can be and could be one of the reasons why confidence in the block ability to handle crises like proving 19 has taken such a hit recent polls of indicated how much of a problem this is with staggering numbers saying that their confidence in the european union was low or has deteriorated with corruption, according to transparency international be seen is so widespread, does not raise concerns that the you is about to allocate. believe of you raise post pandemic recovery problem of the current auction east long time problem euro is nor to own a in line. we to ponder makes it is very hard to change the way of thinking, measure it or the can accept the bribery debt attitude is
5:29 pm
hardly change of thing. hold itself up as a model of integrity. the results of transparency international for romance as challenges renew on shows across the block that varies widespread content. so let's see. i'll see paris. thanks for watching us to see. even that brings you up today. we're back in with more stories in the headlines about me. the in the me oh ah phoenix who has actually got an uncovered face,
5:30 pm
men's clothing and shoulder stuck. it's a kind of s got feminism. its name is how camino i bought it up, put a human some of the whole model that it was. it was a lot of up up on the job, but you know, it was that she lives in one of the most dangerous and patriarchal provinces of africa has done cost when she was time, i miss that. sure. no, i shall do that before that updated anyway. i'm glad that i got the news that she does her best to fight for women's rights. i am not able to get that done as you would. i do know that she's known by her nickname, the king.
