a deadly surprise attack in syria as the u.s. offers a million dollar reward for information on the some of the long run. a very warm welcome to you watching our c.n.n. international with me. now our top story britain's prime minister has visited one year after the poisoning that a former russian double agents a script pal and his daughter yulia to raise amaze says the city is recovering from the incident that has been a tremendous effort here in salzburg the decontamination has now been completed the key moment for this city in order to move on and recover from what took place last year. twelve month long questions continue to circulate around the events of march twenty eighth seen russia refutes the case continued insistence that moscow is to
blame for the poisoning with the kremlin noting that the most basic questions on the incident remain unanswered from salisbury artie's party boy reports i've been talking to some of the people here and many of them say they're still processing what happened take a lesson. to teach each other. and we can just go. to the great war. we were to get a. hold of you made people see so. i put my bike from there the everyday life what's a mobile supporter with me so i just went straight back in for a way so i wouldn't pick anything up any more. or less than i'm sure the contamination is complete so. i don't think me saying well one year ago you'd be hard pressed to find many people outside the u.k. that knew much about the town of souls very or perhaps the height of the spier of
the famous cathedral here but the attack against the script files that took place have put this place on the map in the international scandal that ensued has really ensured that souls barry has stayed rather famous it was here it was actually on a park bench on this green that on the fourth of march last year so gay and his daughter yulia scrip are were discovered slumped unconscious they were taken to hospital and pretty soon afterwards it became clear that this wasn't an ordinary medical incision that they were dealing with the script had been poisoned with military grade nerve agent a substance known as novacek that had been produced in the soviet union and pretty soon after that the prime minister to resign made pinned the finger of blame square . early on moscow and there were diplomatic expulsions and a war of words ensued over what really had taken place here london says the kremlin
dispatched a hit squad to come here russian military agents arrived in solsbury they say shortly before the poisoning took place they were armed with a toxic nerve agent and this is something that moscow denies and continues to press for information and access to the investigation saying that actually two russian nationals are involved here and we know nothing about what's happened to them take a listen to the russian foreign ministry spokesperson if people in the west in the u.k. and washington and brussels think russia will just let the slide they are mistaken sergey script files nice victoria's secret powell has also been talking at a press conference in moscow and she's any information about how they're doing or their whereabouts take a listen. to the british embassy have been telling me since day one that it cannot help me that i have to call the russian embassy in the u.k.
under pressure from the media to agree to let me make a visa application but i was refused to visa twice on formal reasons and they even didn't return my passport to me personally they sent it fire mail i'm prohibited to even stay near the border of britain so diplomatic relations between london and moscow of the animosity between london and moscow. to resume a gave a statement via twitter saying she hopes old three will once again be known as a beautiful welcoming english city unfortunately there was one slight problem. the sun.
in defiance of a travel ban imposed by the country's supremes course this is the moment he arrived in caracas that the ambassadors of germany france spain and the netherlands were there to greet him along with a crowd of journalists why go had been touring latin america to wow support with his return now opens the possibility of the venues where they don't. thora teams will try to arrest him later here qwest his supporters are getting them to continue their protests. yet. today will continue in the streets all of venezuela will return to the streets determined to mobilize in search of freedom we will not risk one second on to freedom is achieved the man who says he's the interim president of venezuela this back in the country inspired the thread and i arrest warrants against him behind me addressing the papal enough mother says that this
started out those suburbs small gathering number in the hundreds but now there's houses of people's ears and out so far they go a month off mother who has not impeded the presence of white or hear why there are house arrest warrants against him i'm a little yesterday rate the rate that is or should be arrested inside and yet here he is in the us mayor says address in their millions of the opposition there fertile behind him boy. u.s. national security adviser john bolton has warned against any attempts to prevent quite as return on twitter he said there would be a significant response from washington should quite zero safety be threatened in recent interview polson urge the international community to round on but as well as elected leader. i'd like to see as broad a coalition as we can put together to replace me to replace the whole corrupt regime look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase munroe dr in
this this is a country in our hemisphere it's been the objective of american presidents going back to ronald reagan to have a completely democratic hemisphere a doctrine just mentioned by bolton was formulated by president james monroe in the nineteenth century its purpose was to stop any european interference in the affairs of nations in the americas but many interpret the doctrine as a justification for america's own interventions in the region russia's chief diplomat has been blunt about his issues with it. with the since the creation of the united nations in one thousand nine hundred five international law has been regulated under the auspices of this universal legitimate organization the syrian practices backyards is insulting well according to the russian foreign minister the use of the doctrine is insulting to the regional powers to the countries in latin america and you said that this whole thing should also be concerning to other nations because right now the united states have an ambition change the venezuelan
government to oust madore but they have already teased that they have a similar ambition for other countries in the region like cuba or nicaragua now the russian foreign minister also talks about john bolton's statements regarding russia as a john bolton in a recent tweet called ma duro a liar for saying that russia basically supplied the venezuelan nation with humanitarian aid sergey lavrov pointed out that russia did supply seven and a half tons of medicine through international organizations to sort all of that is easily tracked and monitored. just as now with our guest on drivel take political analyst dan journalist and filmmaker welcome to the program now the venezuelan government has ordered go i don't know not to leave the country he's obviously disregarded that travel ban but now he's back to you expect him to be arrested. i think he should be arrested but. he's not yet
look this is basically. typical situation of how diverse the mass media is reacting to these situations. but as i would. do what it promised to do is to arrest. it would be immediately depicted and described. as a country which is violating human rights but it's not doing this several media outlets are describing when as well as a week or mudroom president but there is a weak president who is afraid to actually arrest earlier in a way don't look all the situation is the perspective imagine a best country like crown the opposition so-called opposition leader who will overthrow french constitution and french government would be supported by six or seven or ten or twenty countries all over the world and he would declare in salsa
president of france and begin flying around the world getting funding from. from china from russia from iran from north korea from but as it relates and then he would define the. decision of the french quarter not to leave the country he would go around the world again basically saying that he said it to overthrow the french government and landed sheryl the goal airports and more bill constitutional france and the girl unfortunately we don't look at the situation like this anymore because this exclusive exclusivity or they don't think they did but it's exactly the same scenario and you know what would happen to that person he would be arrested that show they go immediately so this person wedo who was you know picked her. big goes by the united states basically goes around the
lot of america goes to puerto guai goes to brazil to argentina and to colombe a foregone that is which are ready to assist the united states overthrow we run as a government he lands a civil believe our international airport on site caracas nothing happens to him he goes to the city or drags dolls of supporters behind him and again the verse doesn't really think that this is approval democracy this is an ear of the mortgage is certainly acting like a man a who has some level of immunity u.s. officials have repeatedly said that if anything does happen to quiet day that there will be severe consequences for the majority government so do you think any action against quite ok now would justify a u.s. intervention perhaps. north korea. is.
basically disobeying. the superior court of his own going to be still citizens but as well i don't know maybe the body now do or three other passports but this far as i'm concerned he's a venezuelan citizen he's absolute. defiance when he goes through that as well the more he should be arrested now of course the united states or the those that absolutely know would i to go to him to. intervene in such a well in such a process i mean their interest is basically to influence at least historically but i still love that america because it is so rich when it comes to not sure resources that it can supply the oil for one for thirty years. if they really want to hold to to really tap into their order noko base reserves the spanish prime minister gave us his views on the situation in venezuela to contest that take a listen to what he had to say perhaps when this process began someone behind it
did not think that mr a would be able to show resistance military operations to impose democracy has never worked so as we just heard he said military interventions can never bring democracy do you think spain and the rest of the e.u. concerned by the prospect of u.s. military action in venezuela. well they're concern to some extent because they know where the well they are closer to when is the will of the day at least try to understand that as well if they don't it will be a civil war it's not going it's going to be syria look i mean i just came to syria will see it live area of the border that i have talked to or to syrian military and they said what is up any given as well is exactly how all this began in syria so i think at least in spain leave they understand this and they understand it in a few other companies like my body said she was fairly five star movement in italy they understand perfectly well of the there is
a mall that is people are very strong and they're very determined and the moderate majority it's not the big majority but it this is a solid majority so if they will if there is military intervention of the military is going to fight these people will even if they got out because it's a very complex going through with very high mountains all to the jungle people will go to the mountains there will be resistance it's not to ease it that into fights under it will take political analysts join us and filmmaker thank you for your time sir well thanks most does come this hour including how they syrian military has been hit by a surge of terrorist activity we have the details on that and plenty more after the fact. what i see and hear things with your door. i see people who are afraid
might see these young women in these white supremacists and i see those. that is the color of their skin that's all they have board for themselves to the white skin. life expectancy in america is plummeting if you look at the chart it's shocking to look at almost every other country it's kind of inching up on one side of the chart and then as an outlier is the united states it's way over here it's all crashing down from the drugs from having junk food having junk culture having it's junk politics and fake news it's all fake and fake doesn't sustain life and you see it in the numbers it's clear.
welcome back the syrian army suffered heavy losses this weekend in the north of the country eighteen soldiers were killed during a surprise attack by. syria an offshoot of al qaida found bush a number of casualties were confirms to r.t. arabic by the army and with washington recently pushing of a million dollar reward for information of some of bin laden's son it looks like the war on terror has been given fresh impetus as my god she explains. the war on terror. begins with. but it does not in. the war on terror is almost a tradition now a part of the american way of life no end in sight either so traumatic it was nine eleven that it set america off on a seemingly endless crusade there's an old poster out west as i recall that said
wanted dead or alive and it does seem endless no matter how many battles they win how many islamist sex they destroy how many bin ladens they kill is always someone else we deliver devastating blows to the car the leaders that attacked us on nine eleven. deliver justice to osama bin laden we have won against isis we've beaten them and we've beaten him badly now it's the sama bin laden's son hamza bin laden and washington is afraid that he's becoming a new terror i called homs it is the son of the deceased a.q. leader some of the blood and is emerging as a leader in the a.q. franchise has been has released audio and video messages on the internet calling on his followers to launch attacks against the united states and its western allies
e's thirty also recently praised by the leader of al qaida blacklisted by the un married allegedly to the daughter of a nine eleven plane hijacker favored by his late father sama as his successor he's calling for attacks on the u.s. to avenge the killing of his father same crazy ideology what's unclear his whereabouts the u.s. seems to believe you could be anywhere in south central asia it all. leads to one conclusion apparently al qaeda is coming back showing signs of confidence will through the threat from radical islamic terrorism a continuing threat posed by al qaeda there are according to various estimates more than thirty thousand active fighters across a number of countries loyal to al qaida ironically the u.s.
stands accused of arming them though unintentionally in syria with weapons intended for moderate groups being seized by islamists in yemen c.n.n. reported with the saudis and their coalition partners handing american made weapons to oil qaeda linked fighters history it seems repeats itself in the nine hundred eighty s. during the soviet war in afghanistan the u.s. funded and armed the mujahideen including asama bin laden. they called them freedom fighters the mujahideen the islamists when they were fighting the u.s.s.r. but it didn't take long for those freedom fighters to morph into terrorists and the taliban into al qaida and they just won't go away no matter how many times you beat them it seems they just keep rising from the dead. back in the bottle if the
u.s. does not want to put it back in the bottle the u.s. funnel funnel. thousands of tons of weapons into syria to our forces that it knew very well were. allied with al qaida and allied with the muslim brotherhood and so when it suits the u.s. purposes it will work with al-qaeda and other terrorists and when they become a problem there after september the eleventh or after they morphed into its. mix state in syria and iraq then of course it will it will attack them. the chief financial officer of chinese tech giant huawei is suing the canadian government over her to tension last december my one joe claims she was searched and questioned under false pretenses before she was officially arrested. the defendants
say officers under the guise of routine border check unlawfully subjected the plaintiff to detention such an interrogation to extract evidence from her before she was arrested and provided with her rights under the charter no one joe was detained at vancouver airport at the request of the us if extradited she will face charges of misleading banks about the company's business in iran in violation of u.s. sanctions on to iran she's also accused of stealing trade secrets from american company t. mobile china has repeatedly urged canada to release its citizens saying that ottawa and washington are violating her rights would soon for the some u.s. government officials have been playing up these so-called security risks associated with the products of certain chinese companies and linking it with china's national intelligence launching this kind of behavior is an interference and economic activities by political means it is against the w.t. rules and it disrupts the international market that is built on competitions this
is a typical case of double standards this is not the first nor ethical. economist richard wolffe believes the canadian government is merely serving u.s. interests in the while way to speed. but there's no question given what she has said happened to her that it contradicts canadian law and contradicts the normal kind you see you give to people. especially for that kind of nonviolent crime not don even a crime in europe to the united states why he willing to quickly under pressure make this arrest so that this pressure could be applied both in the company and to the chinese government you know all this was done while president trump was sitting at the table with the leader of the people's republic of china it was an unmistakable political move rather crude to tell you the truth and i think
the canadians were simply the service doing what the united states wants thanks for joining us not international this out we will be back at the top of the alley the latest for you that. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next that the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to say go from fields where everything is familiar on the other i want to the new challenge and a fresh perspective i'm used to surprising people and i saw one on t.v. . i'm going to talk about football not the or else i just think i was going to the.
hello and welcome across all things are considered time peter lavelle failure in one noise what are the lessons to be learned also the stalemate in venezuela and a briggs it update and much much more on this edition of crossfire. sucking some real news i'm joined by my guest here in moscow going these and he is a professor at the higher school of economics as well as arthur oh but ok of western civilization and the resurgence of russia and in london we crossed alexander me curious he is a writer on legal affairs as well as editor in chief of the duran dot com regimen cross talk rules in effect that means you can jump any time you want and i always appreciate let me go to london first. let's reflect upon the failed summit in hanoi what is the most important lesson to be learned if anyone wants to learn any lessons go ahead well what food named the united states needs to revise its
approach to negotiation because what the united states doesn't have to get beyond dog front situations is they they don't really negotiate tool they make demands of excellence demands and they expect the other side to take too late to look at what happened in hanoi donald trump came along he made the usual demands the united states always makes with complete denuclearize ation and steps towards denuclearization and he said to kim jong. un not repent or do anything in return. are not prepared to lift all moderate sanctions in any way and it was john bolton. mortal martens apparently glenn you know one of the things i found very interesting is in terms of public approach right before the summit in hanoi is he was talking and talking about him trying to convince the north korean leader what kind of
