1:31 pm
recent. twenty tragedy in which fifteen russian servicemen were killed and the russian plane that they were on was actually shot down by syria's s. three hundred air defense system which originally was provided by the russian government to protect the country's air spree airspace and clearly israel gave them a reason to need that sort of defense now the ministry of defense like you said gave a second by second explanation of how the israeli jets led the missiles trajectory right into basically this russian plane that was in the area according to the ministry of defense really authorities only gave the russian government one minute's notice before before leading into this incursion that's according to their intelligence sources and that this actually all goes against israel's previous claims that the syrian missile system was firing indiscriminately but now the mist the ministry of defense is saying that it was. a completely deliberate act and they
1:32 pm
also the israeli government also said that these jets did not intend to hide behind russian planes but now the russian ministries are saying something different so we're just going to have to see how this is going to affect future russia israeli relations and just to explain the reason why the relations is so tense is because they had to be in prior phone calls and meetings about coordination happened there over syria yeah absolutely and actually what. basically because of this miscommunication russia also has agreed to and their delay on delivering a new missile defense system to the syrian government as a result of what happened in this coordination ok thank you. for a quick explanation on that press conference thanks don. a month long battle raging between armed groups in the libyan capital has caused one hundred fifteen deaths according to health officials the two major armed groups fighting
1:33 pm
each other are both aligned to the government in tripoli which is recognized by most of western powers libya also has a separate rival administration based in the east of the country over the past few weeks has as have been shelled and vehicles touched in the southwest of tripoli our power supplies have been cut off. libya's former deputy prime minister told r.t. the conflict is being driven by factors both inside and outside the country mostafa abu shuttle was a guest on sophie and carol has a preview. it is a very challenging situation because of the militias who took over every part of the country and in and in there out of the east of the west the south they're everywhere and these militias they're getting support from internally and also from the outside clearly before the foreign intervention have to stop to stop supporting these militias they should be insisting on on the stabilization of the
1:34 pm
country because really it is in the best interests of everybody so the government itself does not have much power one power to turn which is the problem of money and wealth and these are the ones which really kind of used over the last three years or almost almost three years know to to protect itself because unfortunately the government submitted its well to the militias and that's where the problem as. the largest oil producer in opec saudi arabia has rejected calls by donald trump to raise global crude supply it comes at the u.s. president bids to get all prices down. i do not influence prices the markets are adequately supply i don't know of any refinery in the world who is looking for oil
1:35 pm
and is not able to get it last week donald trump said that opec quota must get prices down now adding that the middle east owes the u.s. for the protection it provides earlier we spoke with just a lawyer head of research at the london capital group and he thinks that saudi arabia can't let us to put in danger the stability of the oil market to pose saudi arabia they have their own interests to come first and i think probably what they would prefer is a more stable it looks like the rising will rise. obviously there are the price goes it adds more coffers. for saudi arabia and they can do so without destabilizing the market which if they were to add more suppliers. in effect requested. they risk a more destabilization market and the effect it would have on their longer term plans for the country so i think on this occasion. saudi arabia before they've put

america. on to other stories now world leaders and top diplomats are descending on new york for the seventy third u.n. general assembly with the main session starting on tuesday the general debate as the most notable session is now is seen as less of a debate and more a chance to make a keynote speech and it seems donald trump is playing the headliner role artie's ecology donna looks at what we should expect this year. in the global political circus trump has taken it upon himself to be the greatest showman or jest depending on what side of the fence you're on and on tuesday the curtains will rise and the spotlight fall on trump taking center stage at one of this year's main spectacles the u.n. general assembly has got a couple major possibilities really to help illuminate for the american people what america's place in the world is president will preside over the security council and i am sure that's going to be the most watched security council meeting ever
1:37 pm
well trumps the trickle debut at the u.n. g.a. last year provided a taste of what the u.s. president is capable of it is a massive source of embarrassment to the united nations rogue regimes represented in this body the arabian government the regime caters nicolas maduro dictatorship and destabilising regime criminal regime of bashar al assad regime rocket man rocket rocket. is on a suicide mission for himself united states is ready willing and able to totally destroy north korea totally ready willing and able to destroy totally destroy north korea did your portions of the world are in conflict and some in fact are going to hell his escapades divided many left few were indifferent and in the buildup to
1:38 pm
this he is trump looks ready to outdo himself once again he will head the un security council meeting on iran next week that's while he's a lawyer shared this so i stated to the iranian government you must be truly afraid of being overthrown i don't know when we're going to overthrow them it could be in a few days months a couple of years but it's going to happen they're going to be overthrown juggling two. jobs it seems the president's the low end of freelance foreign policy advisor though at least he seems inspired by his bosses remarks threat posed by iran whose chief exports are violent bloodshed and chaos all nations of conscience must work together to isolate giuliani's stun triggered some emergency damage control protocols in washington how seriously should it take the iranians when they hear the president's close advisor rudy giuliani saying there's going to be regime change and it looked the united states is not looking to do
1:39 pm
a regime change in iran at all that as the u.s. continued to bully tehran over the nuclear issue but trump insists he's playing the good guy and means well i look forward to being at the united nations next week we're going to make a speech we're going to have many meetings a lot of good things can happen the u.n. though could take that with a pinch of salt for the international body good things meant the u.s. ditching unesco attempting to discredit the international criminal court and learning they're not so close when it comes to freedoms the united nations is not a friend of democracy is not a friend to freedom it's not a friend even to the united states of america where as you know it has its home and it surely is not a threat to israel. and it's not just the u.n. that wants to get on the same page as trump it's also russia china north korea
1:40 pm
about the rest of the world really and on tuesday the u.s. president will have his best chance to explain that he's not just a gung ho diplomat. he's going to do good things where it is. i think is. the have worked in a few cases you know maybe in north korea. north korea to. soften up its stance. its nuclear testing and its i.c. a i.c.b.m. development. because it's so outrageous but if you do that too many times and you threaten you know to break all the china in the shop and then you don't do it. and after a while it starts to be seen as a bluff and he is probably getting to that point where most people see it as a bluff and respond to it accordingly instead of panicking while the
1:41 pm
world awaits what trump will have to say at the general assembly china and the u.s. continue locking horns over trade tariffs niemi chill and restrictions have come into effect meaning that it's worth two hundred sixty billion dollars and now subject to extra levies china has already lashed out against the u.s. accusing it of protectionism and economic accounting. has more on the growing changeable. the back and forth between the u.s. and china is quickly escalating into an all out trade war between two of the world's biggest economies and this latest round d.c. has imposed penalties on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese goods and that's set to increase further at the beginning of next year trump clearly means business we're also cracking down on the unfair trade practices from china we are far more bullets we're going to go two hundred billion to two what if i push it. johnnie's very goods. and we will come back with war if they retaliate we
1:42 pm
have a lot more to come back with but china isn't taking any of this lightly they've hit back and added more tariffs on american products were that to one hundred ten billion dollars and it might not stop their term has already threatened to impose tariffs on effectively all u.s. imports from china but what does this all mean for the average american consumer according to wal-mart the country's biggest retailer price hikes we are very concerned about the impact these terrorists who have on our business our customers our suppliers in the u.s. economy as a whole the company alyson the goods that will be hit ranging from food products to vehicles to toilet paper and wal-mart's not the only company quaking at the thought of an economic battle alibaba chairman jack ma is saying he can no longer deliver on bringing a million jobs to the u.s. market this promise was on the basis of friendly china u.s. cooperation and reasonably bilateral trade relations but the current situation has
1:43 pm
already destroyed that basis this promise can't be completed. and that's gotta hurt given how much trump loves to talk up how he's creating more jobs for americans nevertheless the u.s. president seems confident employment figures will continue to rise so it's full steam ahead cherubs to put the us in a very strong position with billions of dollars in jobs flowing into our country and yet cost increases of thus far been almost unnoticeable if countries will not make deals with us they will be terrorist but china looks to be digging in their heels scrapping plan trade talks and tariffs are the only friction between washington and beijing the u.s. also slapped sanctions on china over the purchase of russian military equipment claiming the deal is a violation of a lot meant to punish moscow for alleged meddling and the two thousand and sixteen presidential election again china isn't backing down they said they're going to

which fifteen russian servicemen were killed in syria now the russian plane that was shot down was shot down by syria's s. three hundred missile defense system that was actually provided by the russian government to protect the country's airspace and for that reason israel is actually blaming syria for the tragedy but the defense ministries second to second by second explanation of the missiles trajectory demonstrates that israeli jets actually led the missile into basically the the line in which the russian plane was according to their intelligence sources and this also goes against israel's previous claim the. israeli jets were not even in syrian airspace at the time they claim that the israeli jets were in their own airspace. and they also said that the syrian missile system was firing indiscriminately now already the russian government has as a retaliatory measure said that they're going to stop the delay on the delivery of
