europe struggling with the migrant issue recently a senior figure in the french republican party wants that european culture is under threat political analyst rayna roth first believe such public protests are to be expected when the state fails to protect its citizens. well we can see that the tensions grow higher and higher in respect to the migration issues and the related security issues and the frustration among certain parts of the population grows as into the seemingly is not possible with existing security system also the judicial system to probably take care of the growing challenges that it becomes a real threat that citizens who are already really frustrated and aggressive
9:04 pm
take to the streets and. try to punish. people who look as if they were refugees or migrants and attack them of course this would be a normal process so that the situation deteriorates in that direction that. protesters also become violent in the streets they take security in their own hands and this is of course not a good solution for democracy and for. a law based state. u.n. investigators say top military officials and should be prosecuted the genocide and crimes against humanity directed towards range of muslims their minority group in the southeast asian country who are not seen as citizens the patterns of gross human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law
9:05 pm
that is found amount to the greatest crimes under international law that's we found include rape gang rape sexual slavery forced nudity and mutilation ministry forces in the predominately but this country launched a violent crackdown on the hinge of muslims a year ago in response to rebel attacks on police. hosts the action forces more than seven hundred thousand people to flee the country the un considers it to be the world's fastest growing refugee crisis the global bodies reports concluded military needs would never justify pinning down entire villages assaulting children gang raping women and carrying indiscriminately welch have the u.n. fact finding mission on man ma su kyi there were some and believes the atrocities are a consequence of systematic and institutionalized oppression. this is. just waiting to happen and therefore the fact that we assemble.
9:06 pm
clearly shows a gradual build up of discriminatory policies against a very specific community there you know yes and therefore. this may have reached a high point. a problematic situation. because although. it was just a time which is only time that erupts into. this. horrific tragedy. the un report also blames the country's de facto leader. for not using her role of moral authority to stop the atrocities she has previously won a nobel peace prize along with the u.s. congressional gold medal and has been a darling of the west media for out the last year she repeatedly denied any ethnic cleansing took place when you use terms like ethnic cleansing which i think is
9:07 pm
a little extreme it just plays into the hands of extremists and not a fact finding mission appointed by the united nations would not help help the situation it would have created great cost hostility between the different communities do you ever worry that you will be remembered. the champion of human rights the nobel laureate who fail to stand up to ethnic cleansing in her own country no because i don't think this ethnic cleansing going on i think ethnic cleansing is too strong of an expression to use for what's happening at the state council or. would have been able to who do more than what she has done. was clearly derelict of her responsibilities and we were just a disappointment that if you don't use more authority. to do something about
9:08 pm
this either to start to stem drug policies that needed to be there to address. the a ten a for donald trump's former lawyer now says his clients cannot provide information to prove trump russia collusion in stark contrast to earlier speculation caleb maupin reports from new york. the attorney representing trump's lawyer michael cohen has been going around the mainstream media indicating that he's getting ready to release a bombshell about trump russia collusion now the press has been salivating like a hungry hound anxious to get their hands on the smoking gun the trump russia probe has been waiting for i can tell you that. mr cohen has knowledge on certain subjects that should be of interest to the special counsel and is more than happy to tell the special counsel all that he knows davis isn't just speaking in
9:09 pm
generalities he said he had information about the d.n.c. being hacked he also said he had information about the now infamous meeting between donald trump jr and two russian nationals supposedly about digging up information about hillary clinton now he says he's willing to share this information with the special counselor except now he's backtracking he says it's all a big misspeak i should have been more clear including with you that i could not independently confirm what happened i regret my ira now the attorney for michael cohen isn't just retracting his own words he seems to be throwing cold water on something that c.n.n. treated like a breaking news explosion the reporting of this story got mixed up so michael cohen does not have information that president trump knew about the from terror meeting with the russians beforehand or you know there's no sources with knowledge tell myself and call that michael cohen claims then candidate donald trump knew in
9:10 pm
advance about the june twenty sixth meeting in trump tower crucially these sources tell us that cohen is willing to make that assertion to the special counsel robert mohler c.n.n. stands by its report why let the truth get in the way of a good story but for donald trump who has been screaming the f. word for months that word is fake by the way this fits his narrative perfectly michael cohen's. clarified the record saying his client does not know if president trump knew about the trump tower meeting out of which came nothing the answer is that i did not know about the meeting just another phony story by the fake news media so why is this such a big deal well if the story had panned out it would have meant that finally bob muller had some significant evidence it's been over a year and a half since the special counsel has been sent out to investigate issues related to trump and russia collusion so far he has uncovered some foul play from some former troubles so see it but nothing related to russia it looks like michael cohen is
9:11 pm
lawyer had everyone convinced that finally there would be some real evidence surfacing but alas it looks like we got faked out again still no evidence back to square one but it looks like the investigation has no sign of stopping. r.t. new york. but it seems there is some evidence that's come from the hands of trump himself. i noticed the similarity between this flag that trump's color and this other one from russia it appears is from may have been trying to color in the flag of russia
9:12 pm
at some point someone will notice that by calling in a blue stripe into the red and white stripes the u.s. flag today president trump was starting to create a russian flag now that's what i call the floyd dance leap from color to blue stripes on his u.s. flag we all know we don't have red in white stripes but russian flag has raged i want to bring strikes from subconscious trying to communicate we should listen. to. the syrian government says it's ready to recapture the last major rebel strongholds of at length damascus has been deploying additional forces to the front line of the enclaves though it still says this waiting to pass you a course of reconciliation however the day was snubbed by the keen minutes and great controlling the area to rare al shaab its leader warned other factions
9:13 pm
against talking to damascus. meanwhile the russian defense ministry says the u.s. is expanding its strike capability is near syria the pentagon has denied that claim moscow says its intelligence shows just how this intend to stage a chemical attack it says the west could use that to justify action against a mask if a strike on k. for zite or using poison laden missiles is planned within the next forty eight hours there are some players outside the region are preparing yet more provocations on syrian soil involving chemical weapons with the aim of destabilizing the situation there and undermining the positive dynamics of the ongoing peace process
9:14 pm
. more the missive warns that it's the white helmets pro rebel group that will be there first with cameras and tweets as they usually are whenever there are rumors of chemical attacks and we reached out to them for comment and as is also usual the u.s. and its power stabbed ready with guns drawn we now see plans for the syrian regime to resume offensive military activities and it was. we are obviously. about the possibility that it may use chemical weapons again if the syrian regime uses chemical weapons we will respond very strongly it's getting very hot in the area america's just pulled up another guided missile cruiser packed with tomahawk missiles the weapon of choice when attacking syria
9:15 pm
also u.s. strategic bombers heavy duty stuff have just arrived in the neighborhood the russians also acting moving more and more ships to the mediterranean rumors say submarines too and it's cool dreadfully reminiscent of what happened last time. neal weeks before the alleged chemical incident in ghouta the incident that provoked a british friends and us missile barash well mia weeks before that the russians warned that rebels were preparing to stage
9:16 pm
a chemical attack now they're warning it will happen it. which begs the question why oh why would ask who has almost won this war why would he launch a chemical attack and invite disaster now there is no value for syria or its allies in using chemical weapons against any of the terrorists syria is already winning syria has already won along with its allies along with russia and with iran and hezbollah they have already essentially defeated the tech feed terrorist cleanup time the other thing you've got is we have so many times been told that the organization for the preventive prohibition of chemical warfare has emptied syria of all of its chemical weapons this happened a few years ago but we keep getting told syria is making chemical weapons. iran's taking legal action against the us government teva donald trump's decision
9:17 pm
to re impose sanctions but the move sets both countries on a collision course responding she is multi. economy gratian against my country because muggs done much too little iran's filing with the international court of justice was an attempt to interfere with the sovereign rights of the united states to take lawful action including the imposition of sanctions which are necessary to protect our national security. well just earlier this year donald trump pulls the u.s. out of the two thousand and fifteen nuclear pact between iran and a number of world powers announced unilateral to restore sanctions against iran they include restrictions on buying american currency as well as trading metals including precious ones now the sanctions were met with resistance from washington's key allies including many european countries the even updated us

9:23 pm
maintain peace and stability so that the country can develop and prosperity be brought to the people in the groups members should not delude themselves into thinking what they do is right what they don't understand the times have changed they don't understand the position of they put themselves in when they conspired against the country i think the sentences were too lenient. french president has set his plans for europe's defense speaking to the country's ambassadors he underlined the region security can no longer rely so heavily on the u.s. . a lot pre-commit europe can no longer rely solely on the united states receipt curacy come to us today to take responsibility and guarantee european security and consequently european sovereignty mr michael went to outline a number of crimes to the united states which are very similar to cripes that the european union has with the united states and particularly the trump administration
9:24 pm
there things such as the trade wars that we've seen in recent months this is the high king of steel an element in tariffs with countries around the world also the fact that the trumpet ministration his withdrawal from the paris climate accord it's also withdrawn from the iranian nuclear deal aren't of course there has been doubts from the trumpet ministration particularly from president trump himself over nato itself which is the security force bowings the u.s. and europe now he's talked in the past saying that he thinks the u.s. is doing too much so all of these concerns appointed mark can say we can't now rely on the u.s. for security we have to do something about it ourselves what is that what he's talked about this close defense cooperation here in europe but he's also said that europe needs to look beyond its borders and to look to other countries such as russia in the feature. film for stamp this reinforce the would imply revisiting the

european architecture of difference in security. new dialogue on cyber security chemical weapons conventional weaponry territorial conflicts space security the protection of the protozoan simply take it with russia i want to launch exhaustive reflection with our european partners in a broad sense with russia but defense relationship russia mr michael said depends on europe and russia finding a mutual agreement in progress when it comes to the minute's peace agreement on the continuing conflict in. praying so it seems that as the u.s. continues to isolate itself from longstanding such as you european union that could be no paving the way to new relationships with other countries to manage. well political analyst nicholas mickiewicz thinks that may take may have to transform due to internal fact is what is changing now is first of all what donald trump has
9:26 pm
said during his political campaign that he thought that nader was obsolete i think you know the ripples of what donald trump center in his campaign and his position is micro is getting going on quite well with donald trump so i think he's testing this out on the american public don't forget that this is a very important for micro who is preparing the next european elections i don't think it means that it's going to be the end of nato but definitely do see that nato as an institution dating back to nine hundred forty nine is cracking from different different places from the u.s. that's where it started off a number of you france is going into the next trip in the dark and so this could this could maybe be some sort of rethinking of what the defense of europe and the knives between the u.s. and europe would be. soldiers and sailors of the russian pacific fleet have been put through their paces during trails on the come katha peninsula they will games required hitting targets up to five hundred kilometers away here's
