1:15 am
reached here leave from the campaign to end the korean war it's older the u.s. is interested in tension on the peninsula. the u.s. military needs justifications that maintain its troops in the northeast asia region so they can pursue its real interest which is to contain china's expansion of power in the region and also to continue to sell its weapons and demonizing north korea as an axis of evil country and union who provides that kind of just. the us has been trying to strengthen its alliances for stuff they had apparently increasing military exercises in the region building missiles that prevent systems and inextricable inextricably linked gains are three hundred parents and systems words . but the reality is north korea does not provide a threat to south korea or the u.s. and the reality are so is that the u.s. and south korea are facing an economic crisis where their tax dollars can you better spend on rebuilding their domestic economy than provocative war games that
1:16 am
have already cost us lives and limbs last year there is one thing that distinguishes north korea from other nuclear weapon states in the world and that is that it is the only country that has there that it's a willing to give them up in exchange for a guarantee that the u.s. will not attack it and north korea has been very consistent it has said that everything is on the table as long as the u.s. is in syria but it has to be a process mutual disarmament you can't realistically expect north korea to simply give up its only deterrence capability unless the u.s. is also willing to take steps and an end to its provocative working that simulate the collapse of the north korean regime is a good start. on the way here on r t see the wood for the trees for the thieves but only for dairy illegal loggers and russia who are using wildfires as a smoke screen or reaping frother of details from its.

brushes and boyd to nato says he is disappointed after talks with us out of years in washington gazan things republican lawmakers he met are committed to seeing moscow as a rival not a partner his visit as part of fresh efforts by russia to revive talks on a common missile defense system in europe the american side insist on creating its own shield which it claims is to combat missile attacks from so-called grobe states russia feels a project of compromises national security something the u.s. has dismissed which are a gazan told r.t. that washington's actions are violating moscow's personal space. but if you there are questions that remain unanswered if missile threats against europe come from the south why is the us placing part of its military infrastructure in the north close to russia's borders this is the question that we can't get an answer to when we ask for legal guarantees that the system is not aimed at russia we're told there's a big conflict between republicans and democrats in congress and they start to
1:18 am
explain the object but we're not interested in that what's important for us is that the u.s. is behind these projects and they should provide security for all partners russia is very flexible if for some fabricated political reasons they rejected our suggestion to integrate our means of anti missile defense and there's another saying they could be cooperation between two independent systems if nato wants to defend itself that's no problem but if russia wants to provide its own security so be it otherwise it's like when you come home and discover somebody else's bodyguard sitting in your bedroom he's been sent to provide your security who's going to like that so if our suggestions are rejected and it's understood that iran is just a reason to have to plan russia's nuclear potential is the real target then russia will come up with its own military response which nobody is going to like. and i'll take a look at some other stories from around the world spanish after this apparent out

unscrupulous entrepreneurs have come to use it as a small screen for illegal logging problem reached such proportions that even the government has realized the chips are down. in some regions considered at risk of heavy forest fires illegal logging is thriving they cut through oist in the areas sense of place to cover their crime nobody can determine how much logging was sanctioned and how much was actually cut the. fires hurricanes flooding come what may illegal loggers are using all sorts of natural disasters to cover their tracks . these woods new st peters were found a path of the nature last year it through thousands of have tours of mature forest and many more were chopped afterwards by swindlers like these ones who managed to secure a permit for the hurricane cleanup a bomb. got a permit that allows them to take weeks to be truckloads of debris

a job that could be done in a few days but their permit is valid for three weeks i'm sure you can easily guess the rest. they see money doesn't grow on trees but russia which possesses about one fifth of the world's poorest resources it buys the old with them while the government contends that the illegal logging cons with just a few percent of all timber production environment are activists say this deal of the problem is much greater if you. believe the twenty to twenty five percent of all logging in russia is carried out illegally if it is higher than a decade ago and it's still rising on a par with the amazon rain forest bass a beer in green a result been referred to as the lungs of the planet at close examination though you see it's hard to lower the place most of the illegal segueing timber goes to china and while the locals already see the impact of deforestation on their own lives they see their only other option would be far worse. you know it's
1:23 am
illegal what you're doing. and no it's illegal but there are no other jobs here for . the government officials. or to turn to for common it is these doing everything it can to combat illegal logging new legislation has just come into force the number of forest rangers will be increased in the meantime the keeps and i still thought where they may according to experts if they'd seen the bill it's hard to see the wood for the trees that is one of the main reasons why illegal logging in russia is so widespread and why are they so prone to any sort of punitive action while the federal authorities may condemn the practice all they want a current economic and regulatory environment ultimately makes one daft thing chopping of trees one will look right there and easy to carry out then doing it bill legal way a kind of artsy. i while ours bound environment was bad to keep russian trees
