citizens inside of mexico if mexico mexico was not willing or able to do so is the senator suggesting that the united states send authorities or perhaps even troops into sovereign mexico now the perpetrators of this heinous crime may be subject to a high profile murder trial but are we overlooking something this was a mormon family slaughtered with 223 remington rifles made in america over 200000 firearms are smuggled from the usa to mexico every year this comes at horrific cost to society south of the border and $28000.00 alone the mexican police opened $33000.00 different homicide investigations at a higher rate of homicide than conflict at syria mexican law makes it near impossible for civilians to legally purchase guns in fact there is only one store in mexico that actually sells firearms but yet the mexican drug cartels continue to get their hands on high tech weaponry because this isn't the weapons that are right
1:03 pm
in the united states of america because they aren't in the united states and the cost for ordering them to mexico are the lowest so that that's very lucky or it there if the united states. or or they went to order they would be in in lima. the axes are arms or weight some the structure on the snow arm and also on the session or harm in concert or prick no or who who are going to be by it's a hypocrisy in that sense the office of government accountability in the united states has documented that 70 percent of the weapons seized by the mexican police originated in the united states mexican leaders have long urged the usa to crack down on the flow of weapons into their country however attempts to do so so far have failed for decades here's the thing mexico is certainly dangerous or at least
1:04 pm
that's the message that donald trump rang out pretty loudly on the campaign trail in 2016 nearly 180000 illegal immigrants with criminal records ordered deported from our country are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens when mexico sends his people to not sending their best to sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems with us. to bring in drugs to bring in crime drugs like heroin and cocaine are flowing over the mexican border into the united states however the gangs that are executing people resisting law enforcement and transporting those drugs are armed with guns that originally flowed in the opposite direction the united states has to you know with its diction problem with this problem of consumption not just like being on the supply side of the beings but also on that man and treating these as the public
1:05 pm
health issue would be a good idea to start with these also the sales of arms not just like benefiting those businesses that also benefit the economy of the united states and cup orating with next providing. information to do financially pelicans in a more proper that way and really participating and m. and t. money laundering strads. president on your back on a francis claimed the once robust nato alliance is in terminal decline and he says is becoming braindead this comments have been dismissed by other members of the bloc. france's president and the french president used rather drastic words to express his views this is not how i see the state of corporation with nato so i don't think that such a sweeping judgment is appropriate meter is in our interest it's all security lines obviously we have to take our destiny in our own hands but the transatlantic
1:06 pm
partnership is absolutely indispensable i agree with the chancellor merkel nato is strong. united states north america and europe we do more to get that under done for decades we have implemented the strongest reinforcements or collector the fan since the end of the cold war. or some nato members have already reacted negatively to matter on's words russia says that it will not get involved in the dispute in still hopes to find common ground with the military alliance. which took us. drug was cells into a discussion about the medical side of this issue if micro had got the diagnosis he made of notes it was so evident he had every right to state it we'd like to establish an adequate dialogue with nato and once they to recover we'll be right then. michael made the remarks in an interview given to the economist magazine the french president also cast doubt on the reliability of nato's article 5 which
1:07 pm
requires member states to come to one of the defense if attacked he suggested the deterrent has been undermined by washington's faltering commitments and said that europe needs to assert itself as a geo political power. europe is now dealing for the 1st time with an american president who doesn't share our idea of the european project if we don't wake up there's a considerable risk that in the long run we would disappear geopolitically or at least that we will no longer be in control of our own destiny i believe that very deeply writer and broadcaster jonathan fryer believes that the french leader wants to see a more independent europe president mccall seem to be concerned about in particular was both the disengagement of the united states under donald trump who has made it clear that he would like europe to look after itself militarily much more than is the case the president think it was a little premature is a sense to certainly call nato brain dead but it does need to work out
1:08 pm
exactly what it's for these days it was founded 40 years ago in principle to oppose what was perceived at the time as a communist threat from the east but of course that's those under the case and its operations have spread into other areas of the parts of the world but that does need really to be serious thinking about what is nato for. germany has been facing widespread demonstrations from its pharmacies they disrupt transport routes using tractors to block traffic comes the industry feels is being unfairly blamed for climate change while having to bend to berlin supposed towards carbon neutral and you know sips this has more. german farmers are furious but this is not a united front 2 camps are taking aim to the government over its environmental rules for very different reasons although one corner 'd thousands of farmers calls
1:09 pm
in gridlock in several major cities over environmental measures which they say are crippling their life put the biggest one in bonn to the german argued culture ministry were a 10 kilometer convoy brought the city to a halt. a looming ban on the controversial weed killer and tighter controls on slurry and fertilizer are just some of the measures that farmers say will force them out of business germany's lost 16 percent of its farms between the years of 2007 and 2017 a trend that the germans farmers association says is reflected across western europe
1:10 pm
farmers see the had enough of being labelled as the bad guys in the growing climate change movement we are not satisfied with the agricultural policy which is being shaped and it's a policy that's not based on facts what new requirements are being issued a time at a rate we simply cannot keep up with we have no chance to adjust our farms in time if the wish list from different n.g.o.s is getting longer and we are getting fed up with the fact that we've being made responsible for every dead insects and so on top seeded them can we are fed up with this pharma bashing campaign. we simply want to show that we're fed up with being scapegoated for everything is negative we are to blame for climate change or the air or water pollution because go on like this. but on the other corner are the german farmers are choosing the government all fail . the environment and putting them out of business if you want one the federal government to rethink its crime and goals it's rather take the action to reduce c o 2 emissions instead of roadblocks they try taking the legal route the 1st time
1:11 pm
the government had been taken to court for failing to protect the environment. he has become clear that climate action is prosecutable we can end up in coolant that is how i see it i believe that we should move forward with a positive attitude and i think more action must be taken now. germany's plan was to cut 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 and compared with those in 1990 but it has fallen short it only reduced 31 percent but a court in berlin found that the targets were not legally binding on their turds the farmers are digging in on both sides we want to be perceived as people who produce healthy products in harmony with nature and not as the biggest destroyer of nature in germany more needs to be done the saudi government recognizes that it must act now and then maybe opposites over the impact and solutions of climate
1:12 pm
change but there's one thing that they do agree on that bird lynn is failing them both a federal law suits us for our team. but in the history of animosity between north and south korea people in the south would side with north korea in the event of a conflict with japan that's the result of a survey by a think tank in so almost half of those are said that they would back pyongyang even though there was an option to stay neutral only 50 percent said they'd side with tokyo despite continuous warnings by western allies of the threat posed by north korea. north korea's 6 test of a nuclear device and its missiles launchers are a threat not only to the people of south korea but to the people all across our globe it has never been more important to be working closely together given the shared threat of north korea and north korea has conducted 10 missile tests this
1:13 pm
year 2 of them involved solid fuel missiles which the north can march with less morning we saw soldiers preparing patriot missiles to shoot down incoming ballistic missiles from north korea the most immediate threat tonight from north korea is far more conventional they could fire on south korea the survey also comes as relations between south korea and japan are seeing another low with disputes resurfacing over longstanding controversies back in 1010 japan turned korea into its colony fought hard against the independence movements back then japan controlled almost every aspect of life on the peninsula during the 2nd world war japan drew heavily on korea hundreds of thousands of koreans were forced to work in japan conditions so bad it's estimated 60000 died as a result women from korea we used the sex slaves by japanese soldiers many koreans believe the treaty signed between the countries in $165.00 didn't and wrongs that have been done while human rights attorney eric campbell is that both japan and the
1:14 pm
states often painted a dog picture of north south relations in order to fit their own political agenda. these outside influences japan in the united states for their own political purposes i think they exaggerate the desire of the north koreans to will somehow attack south korea and i think that this will all begin to bear out when these types of surveys and discussions take place and when the mood in ministration finally i hope has the ability and the the guts frankly to do what they say they want to do and that is engaging and peace and settle the korean war with the grids and so i think that japan will continue to fail in these flames until the south koreans really put into it by formalizing relations and taking further serious steps toward peace.
1:15 pm
and you poll in the us suggests that most all feeling stressed over the upcoming presidential elections effective worries people with as much as terrorism or climate change the main concern is the may day repair only blowing things out of proportion because about nearly 40 percent of people say that they have now cut their news consumption. time we're seeing democracy under threat we're seeing state actors try to meddle in us elections this is bad for democracy they want to disrupt our democracy they want to disrupt our our system they want to cause doubt in their arse its traditions and our and our leadership donald trump's circus has ruined our country and our country is all the rooms like nothing we have ever confronted before as a nation now we can binge watch the end of america with the increased attention i think that news media particularly in the united states has given. the political
1:16 pm
body i guess you'd say i don't think that that is that notable a certain level of stress around election time can prompt action everyone knows for sure there is going to be an election and elections absolutely have consequences no matter where you live and so if it prompts people to take action founding fathers of the united states would say that might be a good thing and that some stress that leads to action in terms of voting would be a good thing and so sometimes a little bit of stress around an election time that leads to action might be a productive thing. recording to the poll many americans feel that the country's at its lowest over points they report mixed feelings about the nation's future with less than 4 in turn believing it's on an upward path. to jean allowed in the game says that americans are now beginning to understand that the media are skewed in the way they present information. there's definitely
1:17 pm
a disproportionate negative coverage of politics in the united states media there's no question of that i think the figure is the high ninety's percentage of coverage in us media is negative and so that isn't surprising that that would leave some level of cynicism or negativity with the electorate and some level of stress absolutely and so you know the media does bear some responsibility on the way that they present the news is good news on that is that americans are very aware of this in ways they didn't used to be americans understand that the media is very skewed and that more than 90 percent of the media in the united states presents the negative side of it so americans kind of know to look for the positive and that's the good side that's the good news if you will. if you don't have
1:18 pm
nations general assembly has voted overwhelmingly to america's economic embargo on cuba no lasting for nearly 30 years but the us together with brazil and israel has voted no. you know we had been assumed that the president of trans government has begun to escalate in its aggression against cuba by apply an unconventional measures in order to prevent disappoint fuel to our country its goal beyond disrupting the economy is to damage a cuban family standards of living by us but it is time for the vast majority to be heard it unilaterally demands the immediate and definitive and to the chronic and inhuman good case against you but it is time to put an end to double standards in international relations. like all nations we get to choose which countries we trade with this is our sovereign right so it is worrying that the international community in the name of protecting sovereignty continues to challenge this right. the
1:19 pm
resolutions not legally binding but it follows a trend of u.s. isolation from the international community is that look at this month alone on november 1st the general assembly again overwhelmingly approved a draft resolution calling for a middle east free of nuclear weapons the u.s. and israel voted against a couple of days later the organization voted on a draft resolution aimed at preventing an arms race in outer space the u.s. and israel also said no to that as well as on a draft resolution calling for prevention of militarization in space it's glenister former u.n. officer francisco told us what makes washington act this way. they are desperate to us. but we know what they call it. i mean. because we haven't built a new world order i mean they are all special. on their own. reality on their own. but wars conflict if order
1:20 pm
i mean not only the trial i mean for you and barack obama there was no new world order so you know after the for you know. there's no word order i mean i'm but livable i'm going main responsibility lives on groups. by u.s. policy or reaffirm a constant. promise. us democrats release $300.00 pages of testimony from the country's top diplomat in ukraine in it bill taylor claims that there was an improper could pro quo arrangement with kiev he says the release of hundreds of millions of dollars of financial aid was dependent upon ukraine launching a corruption investigation into terms potential political rival joe biden and some media say it's a crystal clear sign of president donald trump's guilt this is
1:21 pm
a deeply credible knowledgeable person and he belatedly realizes that there is a quid pro quo his testimony has been one of the most important for democrats who say it provides the clearest explanation for president trump and its allies were demanding at the time this was all going down he texted are we now saying that security assistance a white house meeting are conditioned on investigations conditioned we talk about quid pro quo condition is a key word there that is what prosecutors call a head shot it is right on point republicans of push back against bill taylor's account they say despite the ambassador's claims he actually had no firsthand knowledge of the alleged arrangement. as i understand from one of the maybe the article in the new york times giuliani was interested in getting some information on vice president biden he says he's a good one client and he's useful to the client and then it's your inference that mr giuliani's goal would be the president's goal yes and your source is the new york times yes so do you have any other source that the president's goal in making
1:22 pm
this week was was anything other than new york times i haven't talked to the president i have no other information from what the president was thinking the monied interests the george soros and other people can arrange for a diplomat like taylor to leave whatever position had to get a very question lifestyle who knows what this guy has been promised who knows what his motivations actually may be but he's betrayed so far show horrible judgment coming out originally say one thing and a many got on the parents on the strength that he read something in the new york times even like new york times reporting sadly in the last 20 years has become scurrilous there are numerous examples of new york times stories that were puffed up beyond all measure i mean this is really just beyond silly. to tell also claims that discussions on financial aid to ukraine were delayed because the trumpet ministration was distracted by attempts to buy greenland. what do you deduce from that. is fighting with the russians but all of these agencies that support this
1:23 pm
can't get amusing with the president to discuss it it turns out that the terminal that those principles as we call them were in different tribes at different times i think this was also beyond the time of the greenland question for it isn't real and which to come up a lot of energy in the end i see. that's disturbing for a whole different reason this just tells you how far out of the loop taylor actually was we can afford to do multiple things at the same time and to suggest with a straight face that the truck white house could not have could not consider his in treaty because they were too busy figuring out how to buy greenland is just a telegraph that this guy is you know is john mccain refer to people he's a whack a bird is this is crazy that's there isn't just simply not the case. russia says it's ready for further talks on nuclear disarmament but is waiting for the united states to respond to suggestions for mr sergei lavrov made the comments
1:24 pm
at a key formal nonproliferation in moscow when 40 countries are expected to take part over or not washington despite being invited me for national reports. it seems that all the participants all the speakers i heard a good we all know the importance of a sincere and productive dialogue between the states in order to find common ground but they all confirm there is a lack of such discussion hand they disagree on who is to blame for that russia point america saying that after we draw in from the i.m.f. treaty after rejecting what my putin's offer to suspend deployment of missiles in europe with the new start treaty that expire is next february now in danger in following numerous violations of nonproliferation treaty america's behavior threatens global security here is said again russia's foreign minister speaking about that. the problem surrounding the proliferation of weapons of mass
1:25 pm
destruction would require special dialogue and we are ready for it however when the main partner here in the united states doesn't give us a comprehensible reaction to anything we suggest it's hard to try and act alone we constantly remind the us of our numerous suggestions and they know it already as well as other countries some have been complaining that today's discussion is not quite balanced since official american representatives are not here although they have been invited and basically they have rejected this invitation so i talked about america's role with un high representative happy or not you have to take it for granted when they tell me that they still share the global object to fulfill a new world free of nuclear weapons i have to take it for granted i think it's all very important and we keep you know. with the united states like very much like. regular contact with the rest of the p 5 be particular china diplomat tez
1:26 pm
also taking part in today's hot debates and he was almost attacked with accusations that an important player when we speak about global security spy. actually given that one of the biggest threats is coming from south asia rejects the dialogue with the us china has never let me review china's never rejected the so-called meaningful dialogue with anybody in the us has made this so much noise about having the strength natural negotiations but let me make it clear so far until now the us is never told as what exactly they want to talk about in the straddle dialogue today's gathering here in moscow is a very good chance for participants to prepare for next year is meeting to make it more productive and more effective. the chinese tech giant while we have seen a surge in global profits while also continuing to squeeze its us rival our pull
1:27 pm
out of the lucrative chinese market despite the u.s. government's efforts to orbit bound the company it alleges has close ties with the beijing government and intelligence agencies where we see remains confident about the company's future even without the united states. quite interesting care about the china u.s. trade negotiations we won't be used as a bargaining chip we can survive very well without the us we don't control the equipment so we have no idea how they operate i don't even know who's monitoring my phone i don't know which country maybe america is easy dropping all my phone calls . were back in may washington added to our way to a commerce department entity list that meant that the world's number 2 maker of smart phones would not be able to deal with american companies is limited while these ability to source key parts in particular also the daughter was found the remains under house arrest in canada she fights extradition to the states as washington accuses the company of violating sanctions on iran the u.s.
1:28 pm
also worries countries around the world to boycott the 1st ever 5 g. network developments by the way or its profits rose 25 percent to record 8300000000 dollars last year it also shipped $206000000.00 smartphones in 2800 sales up 45 percent this year we're always already past the 200000000 phones mark 2 months earlier than in 28 team with the expected rollout of the super fast 5 g. network in china in the coming months while his position is expected to grow further on 30 countries have already signed 5 g. deals with the company. ok let's bring in a guest now to speak to senior market analyst at the foreign exchange company a wonder that scrape girl i'm getting into you craig so. any way fans out there are certainly investors would be very pleased to see that business is is booming but how are they managing to maintain this success and growth despite pressure from the
1:29 pm
u.s. . well i think this just highlights just how crucial it's domestic market is they are still obviously the biggest provider by far and away the biggest provider in china and its domestic market is really what's a pole doing these revenue and profit numbers at this moment in time they are still seeing some sales abroad but this is more with the roll the handsets the new handsets are the ones that are going to face the most difficulty their company has said that finding alternative parts has been relatively straightforward obviously the something they would rather have avoided the operating system is where the challenges really lie as far as foreign could score are concerned so while their profits and the ability of the company to sustain the u.s. pressure has been phenomenal till this point is in the medium term in the in the next year or so if this trade war isn't resolved where the key challenges are going to lie so will the united states be somewhat disappointed by the effect of the sanctions or will they be thinking ok we need to sit this out because as you said
1:30 pm
the long term effects they could still be seen could they be in particular that you know the difficulty not well that basically they can't have access to google technology. so i mean it ultimately does depends on what the ultimate gain the reason behind what the u.s. is doing is now if this is just simply a security issue as it claims and i'm sure we've seen plenty now of occasions where the u.s. has used national security is a reason to impose tariffs on various countries if security is actually an issue then this could be a more long standing problem for the company and they going to have to make extra efforts to develop its own operating system in order to. pale to norm chinese coarseness which are already using the operating system quite handily. and this is why this is more of a medium term issue if this is more of a trade related trade war related issue between the us and china and this is something that can be wrapped up as one pocket not would suggest that you.
