9:01 pm
hello you're watching all t international i'm rosana lockwood thank you for joining us. now hundreds have gathered in northern mexico for the 1st funerals of an american family brutally slaughtered by a drug cartel earlier this week it's since been revealed they were killed by weapons that originated in the u.s. and as caleb maupin now reports there's little to restrict the flow of arms over the border. 9 americans dead 3 women and 6 children hit by mexican drug lords a 13 year old boy who walked 23 miles to get help for the others and now us politicians are willing to run through walls to serve up justice it seems this is the time for mexico with the help of the united states to wage war on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth we merely await a call from your great new president the mexican government can't protect americans
9:02 pm
inside of mexico but america may have to take matters into our own hands this is only 50 miles away from our southern border we can certainly defend american 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
9:03 pm
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 from the united states of america because they are 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. arm or late from the structure on that snow arm and such an arm in concert or prick now or who we're 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
9:04 pm
have failed for decades here's the thing mexico is certainly dangerous or at least 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. they're bringing in drugs they're bringing 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
9:05 pm
united states has to deal with its diction problem with this problem of consumption not just like focusing on the supply side of things but also on that man and treating these as a public 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 cooperate with next providing. information to do financially teligent in a more appropriate way and really participating in. strads. staying with latin america brazil's leftist i call no former president lula de silva has walked free from prison earlier today a crowd of supporters greeted him waving his party's flag. he was convicted of corruption and money laundering but today his supporters chanted lula is innocent his release was possible after a new court ruling in
9:06 pm
a state that allows convicted criminals to avoid prison if they have not exhausted their appeals. to silver was brazilian president from 2003 to 2010 in 2017 he was convicted of corruption and sentenced to 12 years in prison and then in some a 2019 there was a twist in this case as a conversation show that the prosecutor and the judge were privately discussing details. hasn't it been a long time without an operation you cannot make that kind of mistake now to think hard whether that's a good idea what do you think of these crazy statements from the workers' party national board should we officially rebut well r.t. spoke to lula da silva while he was still imprisoned and he told us brazil should defend it serenity and resist political meddling from outside. no one has to accept foreign interference in the affairs of a sovereign state i do not support american brazilian colombian or any other
9:07 pm
interference their attempts to control another country by promoting their own candidates by creating a fake figurehead like one guy joe i'm totally against this there are situations that a democratic country has to deal with on its own. you brazil is a very big country it can be fully sovereign it could become one of the main actors on international policy i admire the role that president putin plays in the modern world it shows that the world cannot be held hostage to u.s. policy to trucks crazy or the craziness of a u.s. president who believes that he could invade any country kill any president somebody has to stop him and brazil concluded that well early on my colleague neil harvey
9:08 pm
spoke in the studio of brando out when chief editor of brazilian news site op are among the. now with out of jail. have a very has a very important tend because it's going to be deleted off the opposition is going to be walking on the streets talking to the people i mean officially he's barred is knew from participation in politics he took bodies much bigger than he's able to do that with this decision of the supreme court he's totally free to do what he want to do including any kind of political action is part of the decision i remember from when i was in brazil for the 2014 presidential a little was a standing but it was clear this man is greatly loved in brazil he's got a huge fan base a real presence know him just being out and about with the electorate does that put
9:09 pm
a lot of pressure on the the current president i'm sure it will do because now the opposition is going to have a leader up to this time amount after both are now to. the opposition of does not have a leader improve you has merely the in conditions to talk to people now with lula walking in talking on the street the opposition is going to have a very important leader that i think is going to change political situation in brazil i'm sure about that. the chinese tech giant huawei has seen a 13 global profits while also continuing to squeeze its u.s. rival apple out of the lucrative chinese market and this is all despite the u.s. government's efforts toward the bamba company it alleges has close ties with the beijing government and intelligence agencies why waste c.e.o.
9:10 pm
remains confident about the company's future even without the u.s. . the warrior people who question treasure and care about the china us 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 . well back in may washington added twal way to a commerce department entity list meaning the world's number 2 smartphone maker will not be able to deal with american companies this limited hallways ability to source key parts and also the daughter of huawei founder remains under house arrest in canada she fights extradition to the u.s. that's as washington accuses the company of violating sanctions on iran the u.s. also urged countries around the world to boycott the 1st ever 5 g. network developments by huawei bartsch the company's profits rose by 25 percent to a record 8800000000 dollars last year it also shipped $206000000.00 smartphones in
9:11 pm
$28.00 team with sales up to 45 percent this year where has already passed the $200000000.00 phones mark 2 months earlier than in 2018 and with the expected roll out of the super fast 5 g. network in china in the coming months who always position is expected to grow further more than 30 countries have already signed 5 deals with the company. and jasper lawler of the london capital group believes as of now washington steps have been to hallways advantage. the revenues that we're seeing reported now from while way were actually pre the u.s. ban in may so even though that ban was actually delayed until november all those products are result of the whole ways free ability to deal with u.s. companies since then it's been more problematic for example always soon to release a phone that doesn't even have the official license android version so that is going to limit sales moving forward so what we could be looking at here is a is
9:12 pm
a peak moment in overseas shipments of its smartphones there's been a bit of a nationalistic spirit in china to. buy you a way products and more specifically not to buy u.s. products and apple has taken the brunt of that and we know that actually according to recent reports apple's market share has actually dropped significantly in and apple is looking at some of its worst couple of quarters in a row here of sales in china that experience to date. clearly not. quite what the u.s. intended there and certainly what apple would have liked but certainly seems to have been so far a benefit for weiwei. in other news this hour germany has been facing widespread demonstrations from its farmers as they disrupt transport routes using tractors to block traffic and it's all comes as the industry feels it is being unfairly blamed for climate change while also having to bend to balance a push towards carbon neutrality artie's evangelists it's us has more on the story
9:13 pm
. 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 thousands of farmers causing gridlock in several major cities over environmental measures which they say are crippling their life the biggest one in bonn hold 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 glaive and tighter controls on slurry and fertilizer are just some of the measures that farmers say will force them out
9:14 pm
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 farmers say 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 it's a policy that is not based on facts new requirements are being issued all the time at a rate we simply cannot keep up with we have no chance to adjust our farms in time the wish list from different n.g.o.s is getting longer and we are getting fed up with the fact that with being made responsible for every dead insects and so on up she didn't come 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 you can't go on like this. but on the other corner or the german farmers are accusing the government of
9:15 pm
failing the environment and putting them out of business if you want the federal government to rethink its crime and goals its rather take further action to reduce c o 2 emissions instead of roadblocks they try taking the legal route the 1st time the government had been taken to court for failing to protect the environment. he has become clear that climate protection is prosecutable we can end up in court that is how i see that 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 or digging in on both sides we want to be perceived as people who
9:16 pm
produce healthy products in harmony with nature and not as the biggest destroyer of nature in germany that more needs to be done so the government recognises that it must act now they may be opposites over the impact and solutions of climate 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. despite a 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 past the result of a survey by think tank in seoul almost half of those are asked said they would back pyongyang even though there was an option to stay neutral only 15 percent said they would side with tokyo and that's despite continuous warnings by western allies over the threat posed by north korea. north korea's to 6 test of a nuclear device and its missile launches are
9:17 pm
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 year 2 of them involved solid fuel missiles which the north can launch with less warning 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 or the survey also comes as relations between south korea and japan are saying another low with the spirits resurfacing over longstanding controversies back in 1910 japan turned career into its colony and fought hard against the independence movement back then japan controlled almost every aspect of life on the peninsula during the 2nd world war japan drew heavily on career hundreds of thousands of koreans were forced to work
9:18 pm
in japan where conditions were so bad it's estimated that more than 60000 died as a result women from career were also used to sex slaves by japanese soldiers many koreans believe the treaty signed between the 2 countries in 1965 did not amend the wrongs that were done meanwhile human rights attorney erik's rock'n believes both japan and the u.s. often paint a dark picture of north-south relations 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 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
9:19 pm
they say they want to do and that is engaging and peace and settle the korean war with the grids and so i think parent will continue to fan the flames until the south koreans really put into it by formalizing relations and taking further serious steps toward peace. a new poll in the u.s. suggest that many people a feeling stressed about the upcoming presidential elections in fact it worries people almost as much as terrorism or climate change a main concern is the media apparently blowing things out of proportion because about maybe 40 percent of people say they have now come out the news consumption. 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
9:20 pm
disrupt our our system they want to cause doubt in their our state its traditions and our and our leadership donald trump's circus has ruined our country and our country is all through like nothing we have ever confronted before as a nation now we can binge watch the end of america with increased attention i think that news media particularly in the united states has given. the political body i guess you'd say i don't 7 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
9:21 pm
a productive thing well according to the poll many americans feel the country is up to the lowest point they report mixed feelings about the nation's future with less than 4 in 10 believing it is on the up would pull off talk to gina again says americans are now beginning to understand that the media is skewed in the way it presents information. there's definitely a disproportionate negative coverage of politics in the united states media there's no question of that i think the figure is the high and ninety's percentage of coverage in us media is negative and so that isn't surprising that that would lead to some of 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 a good news on that is that americans are very aware of this in ways they didn't
9:22 pm
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. not the news this hour the united nations general assembly has voted overwhelmingly to end america's economic embargo on cuba now last june for nearly 30 years but the u.s. together with brazil and israel have voted no. the president of trans government has begun escalating his aggression against cuba by applying unconventional measures in order to prevent the supply of fuel to our country it's go beyond disrupting the economy is to damage a cuban family standards of living by us it is time for the vast majority to be heard it unilateral demands the immediate and definitive and to the end the chronic
9:23 pm
and inhuman good case against cuba 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 well the resolution is not legally binding but it does follow a trend of u.s. isolation from the international community here's a look at just 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 on that as well as on a draft resolution calling for a prevention of militarization in space political analyst and former u.n.
9:24 pm
officer francisco cologne talk told us what makes washington act this way. they're desperate to us say it means that we called her you know what they call it fail primacy i mean they have failed because we haven't a new world order i mean they have all of this special power 46 all on their own. reality on their own and to see something but what they have done was conflict disorder i mean not only the use of cunt i mean those women but obama there was no new world order so you know i ask you this really do nikolaus. there is no word order i mean i believe a book i'm going to main responsibility lives on. by u.s. policy or reaffirm a constant. promise. russia says it is
9:25 pm
ready for further talks on nuclear disarmament but it is waiting for the us to respond to it suggestions foreign minister sergey lavrov made the comments at a key formal nonproliferation in moscow more than 40 countries have been taking part although not america despite being invited. reports seems that all the participants all the speakers i heard a good we on the importance of a sincere and productive dialogue between the states in order to find common ground but they all confirmed there is a lack of such discussion hand they disagree on who is to blame for that russia points at america saying that after we joined from the i.n.f. treaty after rejecting weidman putin's offer to suspend deployment of missiles in the europe with the new start treaty that expire is next february now in danger and following numerous violations of nonproliferation treaty america's behavior threatens global security here is said
9:26 pm
a good lover of russia's foreign minister speaking about that. the problems surrounding the nonproliferation is weapons of mass destruction 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 leading 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 u.n. high represents. 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 our engagement with the united states like very
9:27 pm
much like by a kilo contact with the rest of the p 5 people to kill china diplomat tess also taken part in today's hot debates and he was almost attacked with accusations that thing gene an important player when we speak about global security especially 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 fine until known the u.s. has never told us what exactly they want to talk about in the strand that 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. well that's your news update for now i'm or is
