the u.k. suspends its extradition treaty with cold calling over fears suspects would later be sent to mainland china beijing has branded the move brutal meddling and it's in top. form. donald trump son's troops into the city of portland to question his rights we look at how his tactics of those used by previous presidents overseas to improve the lection chances. protests dissolved last it with water cannon in its role as boils over at the
government's handling of the pandemic and the alleged corruption of the prime minister. a pm here in moscow a very warm welcome from everyone at all to international banks your company as we take a look at the biggest stories of the day starting with the u.k. which has suspended its extradition treaty with hong kong it's part of the continuing fallout over china's new national security or british rule makers fear that if suspect the son to hong kong they would later be transferred to mainland china. consulted with the home secretary the justice secretary and the attorney general and the government has decided to suspend the extradition treaty and immediately. well we've seen the u.k. responding of course to national security or why the chinese government and the
u.k. saying that they're concerned that some of the definitions of some of the parts of not law could impact people who have been actually $200.00 cong as part of the treaty for example the more seeks to redefine terrorism it seems to criminalize secession and also seeks to criminalize collusion this is created foreign forces not the chinese government and long held not those many of those answers join us for assessing. how to be including record in government which foreign intelligence agencies foreign n.g.o.s and others who've been whipping up not of rest particularly taking aim at the u.k. accusing them of hankering after the old colonial possession in terms of hong kong and so concerned those definitions of those parts of the i mean that they had just spent their treaty out of fear that people who were extradited to hong kong can in turn then be sent to china and the u.k.
will extend the arms embargo that we've applied to mainland china since 1900. to be clear the extension of this embargo will mean they'll be no exports from the u.k. to hong kong of potentially lethal weapons that components were ammunition and it also made a ban on the export of any equipment already banned which might be used to internal repression such as shackles intercept equipment far arms and smoking rights now the leader of the u.k. is main opposition party the labor party's star mark as stated that was he supports the government's decision to suspend that treaty it would like to go further and impose sanctions on china and chinese individuals the chinese not taking to that very well with been hearing from the chinese ambassador here in the u.k. saying there will be a real cautions for any british measures and the chinese government holding that the u.k. these moves are a violation of international law. in its recent wrong remarks and moves related to
hong kong the u.k. seriously violated international law and grossly interfered in china's internal affairs china urges the u.k. to refrain from going further and further down the wrong path so as not to jeopardize chinese british relations we're already seeing the u.k. you're turning on their decision with regards to why ways involvement in the u.k. is 5 g. network by the end of this year why would a technology can no longer be brought in to be used in the u.k. is not work and all existing technology by the chinese giant has to be moved by the 2027 leading china say any more of these measures could face serious repercussions politically and also in terms of trade and that could impact the u.k. as they seek to leave the e.u. struck trade deals with countries around the lot while professor at the paris school of business benjamin chao believes the u.k. is trying to appease both china and the u.s.
. i think they're protons striking a balance between the pressure from the united states and china from its recent position before the way we know that it is a balance solution because it is still allowing the people to use it for 7 more years now the taunts so opium to succumb to china's 107 years ago before it made in china and then home to was ceded to the u.k. it took more than 100 years especially after the signing of those signs of british on the creation to return home to restored relations to rob's action today is no surprise because in a series of measures to condom china it is i think a walk away from free trade to discourage the world to grow is kind of a securities full way but not by morris like the colonial power you know if the knowledge of c. colonists are intertwined in economic interests there would be no wars. let's cross the pond to the u.s. where a police building in the city of portland has been torched as protests against police
brutality and racial inequality continue to rage donald trump's accused local authorities 1 of failing to contain the rest but he's been found by them 1st sending in troops have has been looking at the bigger picture surrounding the recent escalation. for 15 nights protests and riots have raged in the city of portland what began as a stand against racism is morphing into something else into wellness the scale version of the civil war except this time it is of their north against the south these top it's the right versus the left.
and for a certain someone currently in the white house had keen to stay there that could play right into his allegedly small hands over the past decade that american presidents have fancied military jools wars to drum up support for reelection bush with iraq a bomber with libya but trump current caddy he campaigned promising to end foreign wars foreign wars so why not imitate one of whom wealth or cherry in governments not democratic republic send unmocked of thirty's off to protest is these trumped by our tactics designed to eliminate any accountability absolutely unacceptable in america and must stand the senator had a point this is like something out of iraq that again trump did threaten to use the
military to stamp out these protests he's already used the national god. trump has an election to win and trump's campaign plan doesn't seem to involve getting in his knees he will be hot he will be hosh that's what his voters expect and the authorities in portland fear that trump has begun an invasion this is an attack on our democracy president trump has used our city as a staging ground to further his political agenda igniting his base to cause further divisiveness let's be clear this is not political theater this is far more dangerous than not we have officers on our streets further escalating tensions
and causing harm to portlanders right now dog trump the president of the south i mean the right has an exact he kept his plans a secret his speech had now and rushmore the one with military jets flying overhead that was almost a textbook declaration of war there is a new far left fascism that demands absolute allegiance if you do not speak its language perform its rituals reset its mantras and follow its commandments then you will be censored banished blacklists persecuted and punished it's not going to happen to us. and as with any war you need a main bad guy so saddam's dead gadhafi is gone bin laden's been well killed so
what about that other fella what does they do biden. you won't be sick joe birds mary joe biden would be nothing more than an auto pen president. the trojan horse for a radical agenda. so radical so all encompassing that it would transform this country . into something utterly unrecognizable it is ironic isn't it that the country that prides itself on being the freest in the world the only country with absolute free speech they tell us all day every day how those same people can see that and free speech when it's coming from someone they don't like both are right in the left guilty of this there's no new give new understanding no compromise in either of them it's either their way or go to hell. and of a headline story water cannon have been used to break up protests in jerusalem over
the israeli government's handling of the pandemic scuffles in clashes were also seen in tel of the ozzfest ration with the current prime minister boiled over. so what's causing the anger while protesters feel the government didn't get to grips with the coronavirus pandemic and now particularly angry with the retired to some of the lockdown measures that have been imposed due to infection spikes they also say the prime minister and his cabinet failed to monitor the economic fallout
of the virus now on top of all of this there is simmering anger over corruption charges against benjamin netanyahu the prime minister's trial resumes next year with witness testimonies he's accused of fraud of breach of trust even of accepting bribes despite that looming trial though netanyahu says he's focused on ending the covert crisis while we have a common goal to stop the spread of the coronavirus by various measures i remind ministers that by thursday i have requested each ministries plan for a safe exit from the coronavirus restrictions at least $28.00 people were arrested as a result of the on rest in jerusalem and tel aviv let's go on the list mitchell barak on food fights at the president's office jason harlan shared that thoughts on the current tensions there was functioning and everything did seem under control until everything was back we celebrated too soon here and that's when you know for all
the good work that he did in the 1st wave really wasn't there the 2nd time around a large group of protesters are protesting that the prime minister is aura he's in the midst of a fraud trial and he's. reside protesters there really are problematic for those that are out of work those that are from industries which are not picking up the tourism industry the entertainment industry there are people that are just out of work and economically are suffering so he needs to answer those people he's going to have to come out with one of our real economic plan that is going to put israel back to a sure on the economy as we move through different stages both politically because we had a new government sworn in and in terms of the pandemic itself with new numbers emerge there's been a sort of imbalance between those 2 things and there's a genuine feeling on the street that we could be doing things differently and we could be doing things better now we have a working government there's a strong opposition and a strong opposition will voice it's checks and balances on the on the prime
minister and on his government's policies and that's expressed on the street as well it's pretty much part and parcel of the democratic debate around how to handle both economic sides of the pandemic and the medical side as well. some russian politics played in the pits and has sacked the governor of the region of so gay for ga was arrested last week amid allegations he did organize the martyrs of several businessmen years ago but his detention has sparked outrage in the region and mass protests with all the latest details daniel hoare cannes well this is another step in the saga of said a gay photograph who was of course arrested around 10 days ago on very serious charges of organizing contract killings in 20042005 in a video conference russian president vladimir putin appointed mikail dictator of a liberal democrat member since 2005 pieces 2011 as acting governor of the
region of post which he will retain until 2021 when the elections in russia's far east will take place for a permanent government now he of course replaces. full girl who. he was the governor of a lot of scrooge and since 2018 an election which he won beating the united russia can that. one a reputation as the so-called people's governor very quickly becoming popular passing a raft of popular measures that all turned sour very quickly 10 days ago when he was arrested by the russian f.s.b. the security service and the investigative committee taken on a plane to moscow for questioning to face very serious charges of organizing contract killings of rival businessmen in 20042005 protesters in russia's far east called the charges against him politically motivated and selective is the full to go on is the french team of course deny any guilt they say they will appeal the
detention in custody and any charges he faces however series of course they may be with today's move by mr putin to remove him from his post officially for breach of confidence and appoint a temporary governor until those elections in 21 show that the process is very much serious in motion and is likely to drag on for quite sometime. this is a mortal regiment march and russia commemorating the heroes of the 2nd world war has been called off due to the pandemic it had already been postponed from its traditional victory day. and may done quarter has the details. well president putin officially cancelled this year's imortal regiment march on monday after consulting with its executive committee organizers whose official statements cited the pandemic as the primary reason of course they said it would have been impossible to keep all of the marches participants safe from the pandemics infection and they also said that social distancing would have been contrary to the
spirit of the march as usually people of all generations are marching shoulder to shoulder to commemorate veterans from the 2nd world war but this year there was an internet event held throughout much of may in which people send photos of their relatives to a special site that the government had set up now the immortal regiment marches a procession that takes place annually in cities across the world to commemorate world war 2 veterans in russia it was the 1st postponed this year until until july and then again until september but the authorities really didn't know how long it was going to take for this pandemic to die down now the parade is also associated with victory day on may 9th during which there's a military parade on red square that was also postponed this year but the authorities did manage to see it through a month after it was it was traditionally planned for now immortal the immortal regiment march is already scheduled next year for its traditional day a victory day but we're going to have to see how long this pandemic continues and
if it's over by that point. europe's continuing to wrangle over the size of a covert rescue package for the block and e.u. summit on the issue has now drives into a 4th day in brussels the commission's president though struck an optimistic tone ahead of today's talks. have the impression that if european leaders really want an agreement which they shoulda clear will to find a solution and we need a solution the european citizens need a solution the european union needs a solution needs an agreement to overcome this crisis and to prepare europe for the future i am positive for today we're not there yet but things are moving in the right direction the main stumbling block is the total amount of aid and how it should be given out it's me and spain for instance want every city and province but the netherlands austria sweden and denmark want loans which will have to be repaid
on top of that the dutch prime minister wants any help conditional on a country set here and in rules something both hungary and poland claim is actually meant to target that. tonight we have a long talk about the rule of law and those discussions and we really need to push through to morrow if we want to get somewhere if there is a bridge it's because of them not because i don't like blame game but the dutchman is the real responsible man for 4 months we are going through a phase of stalemate it looks like it's very complicated more complicated than we'd expected we've clashed quite strongly with the likes of holland for example as well as with the so-called frugal countries which do not agree on the need for such a major response form austrian foreign minister current can i as well believe they souring of relations in recent years between all the blocks members is what actually led to this stalemate the fact that we have a tremendous fragmentation is in the european union that fact that we use terms
like renationalisation not only in political science and in academic debate but it's a common term i mean this hasn't started because of the current bad law because of the extraordinary and demick situation we have stripes. 7 members the so which on various topics tz seemingly interesting apart. the broadcast center in brussels has recently it's all about as the rent because countries on the receiving line might have to face there is conditions which they will consider as an infringement of their serenity and then we are in a completely different chapter and we have seen how. the e.u. mechanisms dealt with greece i don't expect in a role to accept the same conditions that were imposed on greece about 10 years ago
. in the u.s. city of providence the mayor is promising reparations for minority communities in a bid to right the wrongs of the past the mayor claims it heralds a major step forward it will see meetings held over historically contentious issues and a review of it all was perceived to discriminate against black and indigenous communities but not everybody is in favor one acknowledging that the liberal left agenda has failed black in minority communities in contemporary times by forcing their children to attend frail schools and by enacting policies that make it easy to become dependent on the government it would be a nun precedented and immoral act of government to seek reparations for the horrible wrongs that were committed generations ago while reparations were also approved in the u.s. city of asheville where money will be invested into deprived black communities the authorities in both cities say the initiatives are just the beginning of why did
changes. a lot of folks are going to jump straight to the reparations question how much what form for how long who's eligible those are all legitimate questions but they're questions for another day and they're questions that will be answered through the process it's important to go step by step with this in my mind is resolution is the 1st year in that it names that their list of historic. and weighted against the black community up into this very gay hairy doughty we put the issue up for debate. just kind of the same thing they always do during elections or any other time or some kind of so far and raised away from this is over going to do a study were going to figure it out i mean how is he not figured out yet slavery ended 865 to 02020 what are we really going to study what are really going to try to figure out is trying to calculate i mean you should know about now never has the
government ever taken one step towards understanding and calculating and studying the effects and the impact of slavery on african-american people now it allows people like a.b.l. to come in and make statements oh it's not necessary oh there's no need for this are going to do it right now who's going to pay for it are you go pay for a result of your own tax money how about me out of my own tax money because the government only makes money from us when there needed to be a $1200.00 stimulus checks in doubt no one was saying oh well that comes from the taxpayer that's a refund we should do that now and so why is it that they could find money to come up with to pay $12.00 trillions of dollars to come up with a payment for people who need food when they and they couldn't come up with the same amount of money to restore african americans in this country who they actually affirmatively took actions to harm that's ridiculous to me so i appreciate who is they who is right now the more there is who is there
a does need to be more than lip service and right now lance asheville city is doing a resolution but here's the issue asheville needs to do more than a resolution they need to come up with an actual dollar figure how much they won't black people were harmed by their actual city who knows how much money going to need up because all bob johnson the former owner of the $14000000.00 i mean where is it going to come from the value is money was bad enough it's often about 6 trillion and the reason why that was given so rhys's point is because the government say that we came out of work and we can go on here and make money the actual you know. mechanism upon which the money will be delivered who do see is not going to be defined nor will it ever be because all babies every dying for to pay is under or so years they say we promise you do we promise you that with no promises ever delivered you can't provide reparations by definition until you know what you need to repair there needs to be an assessment of what has been done what
black people have suffered specifically and so that's why it's not the solution it needs to be but we and we don't want organizations to keep or communities to start slapping reparations on top of every community redevelopment effort and calling it reparations if it's not if it was going to happen it should have been babying 18 states have identified the slave master in a slave fair transaction and now when he told me it would be me pain it would be respect and it makes no sense at all oh well that's a wrap from us a and moscow crossing over now to washington to 12 wonderful colleagues at all america so join them at the top of the hour.
