oh, the trail ah, when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for the common ground. ah, all eyes on taiwan, china strengthens and military activity near the self ruled island with the u. s. high. baker, apparently separate visit later today during her trip to asia. the american navy has also deployed for warships east. all right. one washington see no issues with nancy pelosi visiting typeface, display beijing. the mood as a breach of chinese supper with china will certainly take a resolute response and effective countermeasures to safeguard its sovereignty of territorial integrity. and we need bricks to build the algerian president and save
the country, is ready to join the alternative rapidly growing economic block. it comes as analysis suggests us lead alliances appear to be losing globally with just after one in the afternoon. here in moscow this tuesday, august the 2nd. welcome to the news roundup. in our t. i'm union. tensions are. hi, ron taiwan, the head of a potential visit by the u. s. i. speaker, china is wrapping up military activity with nancy pelosi expected to land in taipei, at some stage on choose the night. now the u. s. c's little issue with the potential touched on, but beijing has labeled the move a breach of that. sovereignty will say so that we would like to warn the u. s. side once again, that the chinese site is ready. the chinese people's liberation army will never sit
idly by and china will certainly take a resolute response and effect of countermeasures to safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity. and so if the speaker does decide to visit and china tries to create some kind of a crisis or otherwise escalate tensions, that would be entirely on beijing. he, a lot of developments are on this trip, including taiwan international report has strengthened security measures after receiving a bomb threat. it was a warning stating the 3 explosive devices would be placed in the building as time papers for a possible landing of palo seas plane on the map. here you can see the jets flying near the island territory. ah, well joining me live here in the she do as r t corresponding, rachel, blevins. rachel, so indeed, the asian island of taiwan, the focus really of the globe right now. what is the situation as it stands
surrounding the possible touched on of nancy pelosi there. our right now all eyes are waiting to see if she is going to make that move and actually touch down in taiwan. now we have multiple reports saying that is her plan, even though of course it was not included on her public itinerary. and as you mentioned there, i mean we've seen a bill from both the u. s. and china preparing their military's really for any sort of increased security measures here in the united states. seems to be trying to prepare some sort of a buffer zone and it appears as though they've left the decision up to polosa specifically and have a lot her to be the one to make this call on whether or not she is going to add this stop to her trip, however, when it comes to the reasoning for it and also when it comes to the benefit from it, there seem to be more questions and answers there. and that includes even in taiwan with people, they're saying that they're confused about why pelosi is taking this. that even
with all of the threats that we've heard from china, take a listen to some of what was said. they're in taiwan. it's all about their career interest. they use taiwan. they, they use that your political mom measure to, to benefit themselves. they only care about how the government can be holding the power it is in their, in them states. okay. so they just used high one to get our attention for domestic market from good hello, see, touch china's bottom line. she touched the red line. so both the u. s. and china have to take actions accordingly. only pelosi will benefit from the elusive visit. that's all. i know philosophies visit will add tensions across the taiwan strait, which has no benefit at all for the taiwan people. i really hope the americans won't come around to mess things up so that we can live a peaceful life. yes,
so we know that the non suppose he is on the trip around asia to stand in singapore . i think it's malaysia today, so not very far away from taiwan. if that an option is there for her to visit in terms the ritual of the us. how are they justifying the potential trip to, to pay while the stanford white house has been to almost try to separate themselves from those as much as possible. you've got the secretary of state blinking, who came out and said that he didn't even know if polo see was planning on visiting taiwan. and he said that the decision was entirely up to her. and that is notable, especially when you take into account the fact that president biden has even said and admitted that the u. s. military is not advising this trip. they're not advising this ramp up intention, which of course is impacting them as they're having to increase their presence in the region as well. and so it's been really interesting to see the ways in which
the white house has almost tried to back off when you're talking about the speaker of the house. she's not the president of the united states. that's, that's quite extraordinary. said, you've got the u. s. president, seeing that the u. s. military doesn't really think that timing doesn't really think a trip to taiwan is a good idea yet. the speaker seems to be going ahead with it anyway. yeah, exactly. and for them to say that it is entirely her decision. i mean, they are putting her in a place of really remarkable responsibility here, not just for this trip before whatever comes out of it when it comes to those increasing tensions between the us and china. i mean, we've seen how those tensions have continued to increase when it comes to the trade war. now when it comes to these issues with taiwan and really the steps that the trumpet administration took to break decades of diplomacy in order to then try to establish some contact that hadn't been there for decades. and you know, it's interesting because we talked about how taiwan isn't necessarily on board with
this trip because of course, they're looking at the reaction they will then receive from them. but at the same time, other leaders in their region have also said that they aren't entirely sure that this is the best idea either, you know, when pelosi was in singapore, the premier, there was very upfront about the fact that when it comes to relations between the us and china that there needs to be stability there for their region and really for the entire world. now you may be wondering, what is posey saying about this? what is her justification here? well, take a listen to what she said lately, the president earlier. well, earlier in his term, talked about a strong emphasis on the asian pacific. he, he has visited, their vice president, visited the secretary of commerce and others. and we want that congress of the united states to be part of that initiative. of course, as a west coast person, we see that pacific as they're, you know, they're, they're home,
we're part of that as well. so how bizarre is it that after all of the threats we've heard from china, literally hearing beijing say that they will not sit idly by if they feel like their territorial sovereignty is targeted. we have some like nancy pelosi who is sitting there and saying that she essentially wanted to see more of the pacific. i mean, that is why she is embarking on this trip and leading to all of these tensions as a result. we heard earlier from people in taiwan, what they thought of it in the u. s. then itself, has there been and i'm sure there has been divided opinion on her trip. what's being said is always divided opinion out of the us. absolutely. and you know, it's been interesting to see some of the politicians from both republican and democratic parties who initially came out. and they said that policy should go on
this trip that she should visit taiwan for no reason. other than the fact that china said that she shouldn't. now at the same time now we're starting to get some more back and forth with people speaking out and wondering, well wait a 2nd. why is she making this decision? so here's a little bit of the latest on that nothing good will come of it. taiwan will not be more secure or more prosperous as a result of this purely symbolic visit. and a lot of bad things could happen. these include a chinese military response that could result in the us being plunged into in direct conflicts with a nuclear armed russia and a nuclear armed china. at the same time this week with the blessing, the, by the ministration, nancy pelosi decided to head to taiwan. that's all but confirmed at this point, government officials in taipei have just been notified that policies arrival is imminent. should we be in the air right now? she's definitely coming. one source told the wall street journal. the only variable is whether she spends the night. so nancy pelosi goes to taipei,
what's the effect of that? well, we don't need to guess the chinese government has, has said repeatedly and clearly that if nancy pelosi lands in taiwan, it could trigger a global war. now this actually notably is not the 1st time that policy has provoked china. of course, she has been in congress for decades 31 years ago. she was on an official visit there. she broke away from the official escort and made a little bit of a scene where she went to a spot where protesters had died there. and as a result, the head of cnn and beijing was arrested. so of course that was 31 years ago, not nearly what we're looking at now, but still policy continues on and we will continue to follow this to see if she does in fact touch down and taiwan and what the responses. yeah, that should be in the coming hours if it's going to happen. wheeler of more of an, an inside another. sure. as the hours go by. rachel blevins r t correspond sickness right. up to date with what is occurring in not reaching racial. thank you very much. indeed,
let's delve into some of the points rachel brought author, i'm happy to say we can cross life to sydney on the director of the center for a country hedge a monic studies. tim, understand tim pleasure to have you on the program at to day. as you see it is there are a tundra bull positive outcome of nancy pelosi trip on if there is and what's the purpose, why go to so much friction on the reaction from beijing stays at all, i think. but is there an upside the upside. if there is one, is that it's bringing out into the open, the desire of washington, and i think it's quite wrong to try and distinguish pelosi from the rest of is number 3 in the u. s. government, doctoral washington. once a conflict with, with china, it's very transparently a provocation. and effectively they're giving china of pre hand to respond because it said is going to respond in any way it sees fit and that could be
a limited response. oh, or it could be a very serious response, and of course, washington has already saying, oh china my, my turn this into a crisis. in other words, they'll say, but this is china's war. as, as they said, ukraine was russia's war they'll, they'll try it. but it's very transparent, she is going in there with a military escort. there are a number of large warships going with her. there's not a proxy army, this is the u. s. military following the number 3 in the us government into chinese territory. if you go back to the 1900 seventy's up was when america recognized as beijing as china, moving away from their recognition really as type of tiwana of ty pay and but basing no claims that the u. s. has been slowly chipping away at what is it called the one china policy hofer. tim, is that assessment?
well, there's a re construction of what the calling pie one these days. i notice today that google has put out false information, suggesting that taiwan is a separate country. it was created more than 100 years ago. no such thing. and the u. s. does not to this day recognize ty, one as a separate country for a number of years that recognize it as the representative of all of china. the tie, one constitution still includes delegates from mongolia and from tibet, for example. it pretended to represent old china. so, but the illusion is being put out there, but this is some sort of independent country and they're going to assure its independence from sean. this is a very, very dangerous scenario. i was just looking through some of the american press earlier. tim, i don't want to stress this is mainly from democratic leaning press. some of the issues brought up was pelosi in the spotlight over her husband's financial dealings . the by the ministrations ratings are falling. americans are increasingly unhappy
with the economic situation. there is it beyond the realm of possibility? is it cynical the see this as a stun? designed to divert attention from those massive domestic problems in your eyes. it's certainly a stunt. it's a provocation, whether diverting from those matters is the main purpose is another story. we've known for some time that the u. s. has been ramping up this confrontation that extreme jealousy with china. it's being pushing in this direction. is the timing of influenced by those particular downsides. it's not clear. washington sees it will not be dictated to by beijing, and that is the chinese government, which is acting aggressively. is there anything tobacco? those accusations, when we look at the facts, you've got the at pelosi trip in the region, you know,
tens of miles away from the chinese mainland. it's their backyard, essentially. and when you hear something like that, do you, do you, do you, do you belittle what? washington is trying to say here and on the act as if, well, what kind of accusations are they? i mean, the problem is that washington is in the habit of doing what it sees fit and not applying the standards of the world to itself. it's not just china's backyard, it's china, it's territorially china. there are a handful of small countries that recognize taiwan as a separate country. the usa itself does not. this is an incursion or military incursion into china, and that's why the chinese are taking it very seriously. i've seen diplomacy trip, calls power without responsibility. essentially, a glorified photo opportunity to say we stand with you, but thinking little of the potential ramifications of this could cause not just in the region, but across the world. is that something that charms with you?
i'm afraid i see it is quite premeditated. i think it is a provocation, which is intended to get some sort of response which they will try and blame on the chinese government. and the chinese government has already committed itself to some sort of response because it is an unacceptable incursion. imagine if chinese military went into port to rico or some other part of us territories. it's unacceptable. and i can't see that. i can't see that any good is going to come of it. possibly you're very good with your time by the way. another possible issue i'd like just to raise with you is at the financial side of things, taiwan. it's important to america because of computer chips, a lot of computer chips and the 21st century commodity that vital one is sent to the u. s. is there a sense that they want to protect that they're trying to get their i t industry as regards to generating manufacturing computer chips in the us off the grind,
but it takes many billions. it takes a lot of intellect to, to do that. so in this case, is money at stake, the financial issue is that one to that is important here. i mean, in the big picture, money is at stake, but i don't think that particular issue is the terminal here for this reason that the economic relationship between china itself, the people's republic and the u. s. i was a very, very strong one. and a lot of those relationships have been damaged in recent years. i'm particularly beginning with the trump administration, with great continuity with the bod and ministration. a lot of that economic relationship which kept the chinese u. s. relationship on i relatively even keel for quite a long time. all albert china was winning in that relationship, but the u. s. is prepared to sacrifice that because it's so jealous of the role that china is playing in the world. now, it knows that china is going to displace it an economic terms and strategically the,
the, the benches that the us is making in west asia, in the middle east, in central asia, in between iser in europe are driving these growing coalitions, the shanghai corporation organization, the brakes they're growing in size, the growing and popularity because there's such a strong international reaction to what the u. s. has been doing and recent times. and tim, just to and touch on a point you made earlier that suppose a division between and what is being said here. you have joe biden saying that the u. s. military does not think it's a great idea or a great timing for nancy pelosi to be going to taiwan. is that real division? or do you think this was played out beforehand premeditated in the way? yes, i believe it's premeditated. they would have consulted about this. they would have probably proposed to pillows he herself, she's number 3 in the, in the u. s. government, as i said, this is something that they've been planning for some time. and the timing of it
might be influenced by more particular events, but they've been planning to initiate a confrontation with china in the way this plan for many years to initiate the confrontation with russia in your crime. i recent article in the wall street journal state of the west has been trying to bring china into the coalition of the civilized for a half century. quite interesting language. do you think the top off it should really superiority of the west? is one of the causes of tensions with nations, including of course, china. yes, of course it is. and most of the post colonial world, particularly africa, you see the recent tour of surgery leverage in africa and those other countries are very aware of this. they're very aware of colonial language. they're very aware of this type of racialism that's used by the supposedly superior power. the u. s. is pretended, it's different to the europeans, but it's presenting itself as very similar to old style european colonialism minutes ill be saying for what it is. 10, thanks for your time and your thought today. much appreciated tim,
amish and director of the center for country hedge. a monic studies live from sydney history that the united states has an ambulance position towards china as tim was just going through officially call. it's one china policy. washington officially acknowledges beijing as the only legitimate government for the entirety of china, including taiwan, however, that so long with calls for the peaceful rest. the resolution of the taiwan issue has not prevented us from maintaining all official relations with tied pe. and sending arms to the island earlier, non american officials said taiwan is not a problem for china us relations, but the current situation will it stays otherwise. the united states no longer sees taiwan is a problem in our relations with china. we see it as an opportunity to advance our shared vision for a free and open in the pacific and also as a beacon to people's around the world who aspire for a more just safe,
prosperous and democratic world. so why is nancy? pelosi is trip such a big deal. it's because of the one china policy. taiwan is officially recognized by the united states. as part of china usa adopted the one china policy in 1972 usa has no formal ties with the government on taiwan and government that was established by the forces who lost out when the communist party to power on the mainland. the usa has no embassy on taiwan and it advocates for taiwan to peacefully re unify with the mainland. this understanding has been key and us china relations for decades in more recent years as washington drifted toward portraying china as its number one enemy. we've seen washington also drifting away from this policy, hinting at support for taiwan independence as a way to threaten shina. the united states is a hollowing art and blurting up the one china policy. us officials of course,
deny that they are wavering on the taiwan issue, but it doesn't help when president biden drops bombshell statements like this. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that? yes, you are. that's a commitment we made in recent months, us relation to taiwan has gotten much more intense us weapons are piling into taiwan with joe biden approving for different arm sale deals, including $95000000.00 for patriot missile systems. nato is expanding its presence in the region as well with various active posturing in the taiwan straits. there has also been a heated war of words. if any one dares to split, tie one from tyna, the chinese military will fight at all costs to resolutely smash any taiwan session is to attempt and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity were not going to lead the chinese communist party dictate for the
speaker of the house to go. as the speaker of the united states house of representatives, you should never have to ask a foreign dictatorship or the state department for permission to talk to america's friends and allies. if how speaker nancy pelosi visits taiwan, it will grossly interfere in china's internal affairs severely undermined china sovereignty and territorial integrity trample on the one china policy principle. gravely threatened the peace instability in the taiwan strait and undermine china. us relations, it will lead to various serious situation and consequences. in this context, nancy pelosi decided that she should go to taiwan at the same time, there's a new bill put forward in the u. s. congress that critics say would essentially nullify the one china policy. when it comes to taiwan, our response should be that we are for democracy and against communist aggression. we live in dangerous times. china sizing up america and our commitment to taiwan.
the danger will only grow worse if we show weakness in the face of chinese threats and aggression toward taiwan. these weapons that the u. s. a is piling him to taiwan are a bit more than defensive. they have the capability of striking the chinese mainland. it looks like the u. s. a is hinting that it may once again back away from a promise that it's made with major country and escalate tension. nancy pelosi trip could have catastrophic consequences for the world. caleb mob artsy new york. okay, know the story that fit in this news, our, the bricks group, all nations is becoming increasing. lee, appealing to more states with the president of algeria, africa's largest gas export or sing the countries ready to join the block, amazon target of alliances, gain size and traction. western lead block seemed to be losing their global at
dominance with u. s. officials, no sending top officials to the african continent, hot on the heels of the russian foreign ministers list ortiz, maria finished next week. a country one, seeing as too big to fail, is now too often seen as failing. a number of global shifts have taken place over the last few months that have led to people asking the question all the days of us global domination over america's political territory is dwindling. there are signs that harold a big event, which is the total defeat of the us. more and more countries are looking to join global union is that washington is not part of like the shanghai corporation organization and bricks. the latter, currently united china, russia, brazil, india, and south africa. already accounting for more than 3000000000 people. and a combined g d, p, or more than $24.00 trillion dollars with 5 new members expected next year, including all the reach, saudi arabia and l. g area,
this powerful unit of nations has all the potential to easily challenge organizations like the g 7 and other challenge to the u. s. global row is that other countries are increasingly traded in local currencies to bypass the dollar. bricks is even planning to create its own reserve currency. even live in america, considered by the u. s. for so long as its own backyard and place it would forever have control over seems to be pushing back speaking with a unified voice against the isolation and sanctioning of their neighbors. and number of countries there refused to go to the summit of the americas because cuba and then as well, were not invited. and the u. s. itself has admitted they are losing hearts and minds. there. the russian media conglomeration russia today in spanish as well as the sputnik mundo, used to have 7000000 followers,
an rti spanish, and now over 18000000. their ability to put out this information. and just so one environment that is full of untruths is, is very prevalent in the region. then the res, africa, the scenes of russia's foreign minister recently been welcomed by african nation, has angered and cared. washington. the us secretary of state decided to announce his own tour with media headlines clearly showing the reason he might be surprised to find that the past colonialism and the current colonial policy of taking without giving have turned many nations there against the west. they sense this is a historic moment to build new alliances. the overwhelming majority of the world's countries do not want to live as if the colonial times of back, the vast majority of states want to be independent. want to rely on their own traditions to rely on their own history and their old friends. when it comes to
asia, it's not just big guns like china, india who are neutral and not bowing to as demands. people are growing tired of america is with us or against us narrative, especially when they are being asked to turn away from russia, the global energy and natural resources player, and china, the 2nd largest economy and 2nd largest military. so much so that even traditional us allies are asking not to be put in the middle. it is natural for some countries to be closer to one side or to the other. but most countries would prefer not to be forced to choose between the us and china. as europe's experience shows, things can go wrong and conflict can break out in war in asia. as a scenario, we cannot rule out. therefore, asian countries must continue to strive to deepen cooperation between ourselves. take all this combined and worrying image for america emerges, it's all tactical, sanctioning, and pressure. it's language of ultimatums as part of
a divide and rule strategy. have ironical lead to uniting the u. s. as opponents against it, the united states has been intensifying neo colonial exploitation for the last 50 years, at least on the united states, is trying to put a, the near respectability on what is essentially a campaign to intensify the occupation of historically colonized places like africa, the people and those poor countries have gotten the worst of the global economic deal. and now they're fighting back. they're fighting for economic independence, russia, china, iran, countries are aligned with their building, a new world world where resources are sure more equitably. ok. more programs right ahead here in archie, and i'll be back in 30 with all the latest global use developments on
a busy newsday with . so my name is jeremy justice and i'm a farmer in iowa right in the middle. my hometown is noon. we raised corn and soybeans here. so some issues that are different this year, the in years past is that with all the things going on the world, the day are input costs. have almost doubled nitrogen green, double, and triple a form of nitrogen that's it's been interesting next years on.
