thanks for joining us here on international on this friday. a very warm welcome to you. the first joint russia china drills in european waters start today in the baltic sea the military exercise between the two countries will last for a full week however even before it takes place the event is spawning a strong reaction. western media is in a spin over the joint the twenty seven thousand naval drills starting today between russia and china headlines have been lifted with words like invasion and war was warning of a challenge to nato so what sparked the panic well first of all it's the location in the baltic sea right in the heart of northern europe and next to nato bases
6:02 am
secondly chinese warships are making their debut tour in this part of the world and if that wasn't threatening enough they're teaming up with russia but jointly drills are nothing new they've been held annually since twenty twelve but this first stage of the baltic coast has already caused a frenzy as a trio of chinese vessels made their way there leaving their british danish navy's scrambling to shadow them out of their waters much to the amusement of the russian ambassador to china the baltic states repeat their usual incantations but at the same time they take for granted the fact that nato is deploying large forces on their territory but then wasn't this response predictable in october last year a russian fleet sailing around europe sparked headlines like the leading some european states to even consider sending vessels to intercept the group and this fear of a russian ship has been around for some time already you can just ask sweden

6:04 am
a sense of cold war and strums and to try and demonize both countries we're only abiding by the rate to seal international waters or do nothing wrong nothing illegal the western media has to say to try and inflame the situation is a see as part of this ongoing cold war part of the game that we've seen in the last few years. a police officer in the u.s. state of baltimore has mistakenly caught himself on camera staging a drug bust the video shot in january shows the officer planting drugs in the backyard of a house alongside two of his colleagues are also seen in the footage right there the officer then leaves the area to turn his body camera on for getting the units are set up to recall the last thirty seconds before manual activation then returns to the scene where the drugs were earlier buried to quote discover the. internal investigation is now underway and the people arrested for the drug possession have
6:05 am
since been released baltimore's state attorney defended the judicial system and her office saying they weren't aware of the video's existence and critics of question why the officers would choose to fake a crime when baltimore is already struggling with law and order. led to cities in body american urban decay a more depressing lead in the city of baltimore baltimore struggles with a record high murder rate. in full. baltimore there is a robust active crime strategy. seeing women say. this week we have
6:06 am
a few suspects that we need your help to. spoke to a former policeman who believes the real issue is with more than just individual police officers. well i don't think cops sort of problem in baltimore there's a miscommunication among police officers in the community all over the united
6:07 am
states of america i think one thing that needs to happen is that we as law enforcement we ought to get out and really really work with the community there was an officer who planted some drugs in the community and dead since a negative signal not just to the police elsa's but the community as a whole it made sense. as it seeks help from the e.u. to cope with the daily influx of migrants austria's foreign minister has to rum not to allow the newcomers to make it to the mainland has declared even if they are plucked from the sea they shouldn't get quote a ticket to central europe that's as the mayor of palermo said the end difference of some states and the block to the crisis equates to fascism there were all of it up which is south of europe will be on trial for genocide this will be a second nuremberg trial maybe not in the cool it spit in the history books because
6:08 am
of this ongoing genocide in the mediterranean and it's all because the indifference of certain states in the european union the e.u. has to recognize the freedom of movement as a human right this is very serious and i think the european union should can i say feel ashamed. italy has witnessed a record number of migrants arriving almost ninety thousand since january more than two hundred twenty thousand are expected by year's end and local authorities are trying to find a solution but it's obvious they are trying to reports from sicily and certainly proving a struggle. migrants keep comin true solutions not really local mayors are desperate for help from the central government and the new but they're not getting it so they decided to get together right there to see what they can do about it. there are new jobs growth peoples and so of course there won't be any for migrants
6:09 am
. the migrant crisis was caused by rome european policy. i blame our government for this persistently the migrants primary destination after crossing the mediterranean and messina the ferry gateway to mainland italy the issue is super delicate and urgent and the meeting is happening behind closed doors . just. tell them not to come in and it's ok. thank you how many people are taken part in this meeting of the five police officers and about forty government officials the forty mayors of local towns spent hours together with the local governor but these are the people who are talking to the big officials of the let's see what they have to say about that i was told at the meeting is going to be over
6:10 am
soon. at least. the migrants are victims of tragedies in their homelands but our communities paying the price too and we're not getting the necessary help. we've heard a lot of talk from the u. but barely anything is being done we're all alone the mayors are facing growing pressure on the one hand after several protests they're here to save the day for their small communities on the other they're trying their best not to be labeled racists and the migrant issues very very urgent for regions it's all about the numbers the quota agreement of two point five migrants per thousand citizens has been violated several times. here initially we're trying to divert the flow of migrants and spread them across communities we asked the e.u. to do the same but they're turning their backs on us haven't spoken to officials in
6:11 am
this building you get the impression that they're ready to make compromises they're ready to think several steps forward and they're ready to sort out the issues themselves when it comes to the long awaited assistance from the you and that obviously they have completely lost their trust and many more stories are coming your way here on the program on our to you today yet more clashes between israeli and muslim protesters flaring overnight in jerusalem in just a moment we will cross live to our correspondent next. this is how. the economy is. going. to business this country business it.
6:12 am
just it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. thank. you. thank. you donald trump says he would have never appointed his attorney
6:13 am
general had he known jeff sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the rush or investigation. by the u.s. president however has never hidden the fact that he wants to be unpredictable. i want to be unpredictable but it's predictable i use the word unpredictable but i like to be unpredictable you want to be unpredictable unlike our country where we're totally predictable some find it increasingly difficult to follow the president's stance. and hit the streets of new york to find out if americans really know where trump stands on the key issues that will trump is a man whose policy positions can be quite hard to pin down we decided to talk to americans and find out how well they know their commander in chief and where he stands donald trump says it was a good idea to pick jeff sessions i think what he said is. that if he knew jeff sessions would with cusins he never would have joe's and m. regrets put it up as attorney general i think would down jump it's all about
6:14 am
business so he my. president donald trump has confidence in attorney general jeff sessions do you think he likes jeff sessions trust jeff sessions or or doesn't. i think he uses jeff sessions. so that neutral it's all rational gratian i don't think you regret it because he's still in office sessions should have never refused him self and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and i would have picked somebody else donald trump thinks china is a good partner i think donald trump thinks anybody is a good partner who will pad his pockets and pad the pockets of his spamtrap and partner with anyone that will enrich his coffers if we can't continue to allow china to rape our country and that's what they're doing isn't getting us to partner with china again i'm really not so sure he's thinking about china i don't think he wants to partner with them for say i do think he will be able to do anything it was
6:15 am
china but you. have. to say that. you know you have. you know. what's his position on cooperating with russia around issues of cyber security i think he the statement i remember reading of was that he wanted to create with russia some kind of overall cyber security by i think based on his relationship with russia maybe i do think he will want to partner with russia because that was his main thing when they came the election. the fact that president putin and i discussed a cyber security unit doesn't mean i think it can happen it can't but a ceasefire can and did is going to partner with russia on cyber security no. hootin and i discussed forming an impenetrable cyber security unit so that election
6:16 am
hacking and many other negative things will be guarded now some might think that donald trump's unpredictability might be an asset when negotiating with foreign leaders however sometimes it appears that his supporters are just as confused as his adversaries. r.t. new york a former u.s. diplomat trust believes consistency is just a way of keeping his critics. i think they are sometimes difficult to pick pin down during the campaign someone said that the american voters took him seriously but not literally that he would express things in somewhat different ways that maybe seem contradictory sometime maybe is a little bit of an annoyance for them sometimes especially if they feel they need to answer literally up here and say sean spicer is position or kellyanne conway is position they say what trump said this or that he said that how do you explain it and maybe it puts them on the spot the bigger issue is whether he keeps his critics
6:17 am
off balance and i think this is part of how he does it. of aereo sophie shevardnadze has spoken to a veteran drug enforcement agent who spent decades on the cover exposing cartels across the uk in america and we can show you an extract now that you can watch it in full all day today when i was working undercover it you had to be extremely careful. you know not be nervous because drug dealers by their psychological makeup are very very suspicious you know there are they suffer from paranoia and they passed you constantly they ask you questions what i did to control any type of nervousness is expunged from my mind that i was. and psychologically i transform myself into
6:18 am
a drug lord. i was one of them i dressed like i like. i could not afford to think like law enforcement and i did law enforcement for so many years but i had to completely completely remove that from my mind and it was a transformation very much like an actor and does before he plays a role in the movies or on television however. in this case you were playing a deadly game of cat and mouse any minor mistake that you made and you worried that .
6:19 am
this is arty international francaise official presidential portrait has never posed much of a problem or that is until the latest incumbent emanuel macron who now wants a bigger one than his predecessors.
6:20 am
so it is the fourth day of the max air show that's taking place near moscow the latest plane's an aviation tech of being showcased there are some of the best display teams from around the world are demonstrating their skills up in the skies but as well as looking to the future many have been taking a few moments out something a little special from the past a legendary soviet two fighter affectionately known as the flying tank took to the skies for the first time in decades this particular one was shot down in one thousand nine hundred three and it had been lying at the bottom of a lake in northern russia for more than seventy years before it was recovered restored and returned to the skies the allusion to holds the record did hold the record for being the world's most produced military fighter although today there are only two still fly.
6:21 am
free wi-fi in public places sounds great in practice but is used as in the u.k. have been finding out there are some tricky hidden extras in the small print. we were looking at changing our privacy policy and really just trying to simplify things as much as possible for people looking on to the wife i just thought you know how many people actually every what they're agreeing to the plan was for alls
6:22 am
to make it as transparent visible for those people as we possibly could so we thought well you know let's do an experiment let's take it in and it's really crazy and see how many people actually think obama and. people just are completely unaware of what they're agreed to with that date you could literally anything you want to see conditions and those people just don't really that will be agreed to all sorts of different things. i could have you with us today we're showing you live pictures right now from the columbia checkpoint between the west bank and jerusalem showing you these live pictures because of all around fifty muslim protesters are said to have been injured over a night after clashes with police in jerusalem and now more thorough teams are saying the men under the age of fifty will be banned from entering the city's temple mount during the clashes overnight three sustained serious injuries with one
6:23 am
surgery at the demonstrations palestinians could be seen if i was talking to tell me the protests erupted after israeli authorities installed security cameras and metal detector. so there were a big. following a deadly shooting bad week in the meantime a palestinian spiritual leader is demanding the new security measures removed from the also known as the temple mount you want a situation could get much worse if the demands are not met before friday prayers again we continue to show you a live picture on the international. we did get a view. i guess people on both sides of the debate to find out what they think about the current continued tensions.
6:24 am
taking place temple mount. should be any reasoning for any kind of terror and violence if some people want to exploit that that situation and incite terror and the only ones to blame for the terror will be those insiders and those who are acting by it because the israeli security system will do everything it can to make sure to preserve public order and the state of israel is instigating violence it's prohibiting people form practicing freedom of worship something that the state of israel claims the opposite of the state of israel wants to add a fake jewish feature to the identity of jerusalem to their claim actually we answer one thing jerusalem is israeli as moscow is american i'm very sorry that we reached this point i would have expected the leaders of the muslim community to
6:25 am
condemn last week's terror attack and to try to calm down the crowd but instead what we've been seeing in the past week we've been seeing the islamic leadership calling upon the people to come today. to the temple mount and to organize riots and this is something we cannot allow we're not going to allow to druce them the city which is holy for so many billions of people around the world jews muslims christians all believers of the bible we cannot allow this place to turn in to its center of riots of stone throwing of endangering the peace of the public order and therefore we had no choice the state of israel are created this myth about security this nuclear state is claiming that it is in its attacking people's rights for its own security these people are on even the incident that took place that store a discord process didn't take place and i could see sure if it took place outside the mosque and israel retaliated inside the mosque to create that the two to the
6:26 am
world that the incident happened actually in the mosque and by that it took advantage of the incident only to promote its agenda to change just status quo inside a lock some mosque i think it's the interest of the walk at the temple mount remains quiet and therefore they should be helping out with the israeli police and not in fighting against the israeli police they should be working hand by hand because those three muslims who last week are in the temple mount inside this place which is so saying the fight for the past the millennium for muslims but many for two millennia and for christians and for three millennium for jews is a place which we want to preserve sanctified and we don't want killing to be in there and therefore once it happened once we know that can happen again straining the soldiers are blocking the ways to drill some distant israel instigates and try to touch upon something that is very sacred to the palestinian people whether was
6:27 am
from a religious point of view or national one of you and what do they expect and this that would be the violence that we're talking about it's base it's not using weapons it's just protest true. violently by the state of israel and its soldiers and people we actually got but no weapons. continue to show you a live pictures here on r.t. international the location of the pictures ultimately is a checkpoint between the west bank and jerusalem known as the kalandia checkpoint we understand there are tensions there between idea forces and palestinian protesters as well not least because they partially shut down the very sacred site of the temple mount it's friday prayers as well we also understand for security reasons israelis are now banning men under the age of fifty from attending the temple mount for they friday prayers we also understand that the spiritual leader of the mosque is also encouraging and warning of potential violence if the security measures taken down from the sacred site of the temple mount so we do see the
6:28 am
tensions continuing to a flare between both sides the israeli defense forces on the palestinian worshippers and more details as you need them on our website dot com. in the meantime though here on this network next will be larry king and politic. drug trafficking organizations are very sophisticated and they function very much like a global corporation you know they have different components they have components that engage in money laundering and of course man you know the killing security forces they kill enough for a man's. credit is one of the basic instruments to drive an economy but it can also lead to tragedy i did it i took a line just i came bigger and meant that the debts tie came and it was not.
6:29 am
many lives have been broken excessive to the banks going. on only big bankers come. on the government the banks but i just didn't think of the. money through the back. creditors people see no future bad face could happen you know you become ill you do to a job you know relationship breaks down you become a casualty is dead on life long or is there a way out of those actually come to a bit of know would like to ditch a bill for so much risk and. russia's interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. political campaign and what it says about america's electoral vulnerability on this edition of allah.
