10:30 pm
in realize the need with or not, but somebody has to step take that step forward to provide that very, very big step forward url. as you say, when it comes to you know, overseeing a thinking shit. so to speak, person has person has said in recent times said, well, you know, back then the united states like the soviet union because we were weak and we needed their help. how do you assess that statement? i don't necessarily. yeah. i mean, i don't necessarily go along with that now, i'm not saying there were people within the u. s. higher that you'd that way. i wouldn't say most americans viewed it like that the were there. i mean was faith that i, i've interviewed a lot of different congress than and, and master me many people unfortunately,
10:31 pm
i don't think the cold war ever and and so if we're moving into a new cold war, will absolutely just the continuation for them to, to can you can, you just expand on that? it was just, just briefly call me when you say that the cold war never really ended. a lot of people say that it ended there. was it, there was a period of relative calm and then it restarts it again. but earl, you say the cold war never ended, or i'm saying the cold war never ended for many, for me and for a walk. but there are many very influential people that i do not really think it did. and they actually saw an opportunity. i think we have a policy of dating back even you know, before the fall of soviet union, the breakup. i think there was a policy within certain hierarchy where they agree or not. and i definitely don't agree of the u. s. a gemini, and i think we see that today as well. and i think
10:32 pm
a lot of people, and i think there's, there's a fight going on inside the the hierarchy as well. but i think, i mean, i think gorbachev's been push one and you know, they had that time period. i think they, they were actually looking at opportunities to move forward together. i really believed now what, what was used after that and other people with other venue or other other ideas they did not take that opportunity use that. i think we wandered it but, but i think you, i think it needed to be taken. i think were. ready positive moved and yeah, was the hardships. yes. that whole area of the economic area been better? absolutely. i think a lot of the resources were stolen or, or mr. misuse. a lot of the people lost everything they had. i think that was
10:33 pm
there's a lot of or economic conditions that were that were actually implemented in the west did not help them that actually you know, partially or probably largely contributed for that executive vice president of the ratio center. rasmus and joining us here for this breaking news coverage and all the international. we appreciate your time. thank you very much for that. the meantime, a slew of economic, social, and political failures during perestroika led to an attempted coup in august 991 senior government and military officials tried to take control of the country away from gorbachev. well, it failed in just 3 days, but precipitated the dissolution of the soviet union with a future leader boris yeltsin. come in to the 4 good. the 19th, 1991 on every tv channel in the country, a continuous loop of the ballet swan lake. meanwhile in moscow,
10:34 pm
dramatic scenes were playing out a moment. vehicles rolling into the capitol the presence of the usa seller is out of town and not a house arrest. the holiday home in crimea will radio and t v announcements proclaimed mikhail gorbachev was no longer fit for duty. and the country was now under the control of an emergency committee. ah, citizen was motionless duplessis day unused at all. yeah, the phone, you got a bunch of them if you wanted to gauge him. so unless the president, the assessor these anesthesia tabling him shuttle, you play awfully seeing him at his teaching is up on misty but at least teaches a chain. i pleasure. any of i didn't miss misty faces to set myself safe? nickerson, independent media shut down. people across the soviet union, left struggling to understand what exactly is happening?
10:35 pm
well, most device for waking up to around $4000.00 troops and hundreds of times to petroleum street. the co attempt was masterminded by communists hotline is they wanted to derail a pending agreement on wide ranging sovereignty for soviet republic, but tens of thousands of protest. this began heading outside, forming around the russian government, had quoted russian leda boris yeltsin. famously defied the takeover from the full tank i knew on by the evening. 6 more tanks join yelled inside the next a crowds outside the white house continue to grow. 1 ah, on august the 21st 3 people are killed when andy cooper. this is tried to solve for colon vomit vehicles ah.
10:36 pm
a day later, gorbachev returns to moscow as the attempted overthrow effectively collapses. crown chair, as the russian tree cloth becomes the official state flag, the symbolic sign of victory by the hard line, communist cooper. gorbachev may have long since retired from governance, but he always remained a vocal influence on russia's political course. have a quick listen to this. in order to move the study, we must move on from a blame game to a search for common ground and gradual lifting of sanctions, which are damaging to both sides. stumpy, as a 1st step, we should lift the so called personal sanctions that affect politicians and members of parliament. fancy. shrewdly. nato was for some reason
10:37 pm
determined that ukraine should join it. there's an ongoing struggle for regional domination, but no side must dominate in this crossroads region with them. so recently we've seen a collapse of the trust that had been created in the process of ending the cold war, but it wasn't undermined yesterday before you and triumphalism went to western leaders heads who took advantage of weakening russia. they claim monopoly leadership and domination in the world. a case in point. the large amount of nato yugoslavia kosovo missile defense plants, iraq, libya, and syria bush and more outside pressure that is piled on president putin. the higher as approval ratings become among the russian public. when i appreciate you joining us there are naughty international, more of our special coverage on the death of the last leader of the soviet union coming throughout the day. there were not seen to a very different topic now,
10:38 pm
but certainly relevant. solomon islands has suspended all foreign navy ships from entering its waters, pending adoption of a new process for the approval of port visits. we have requested our partners to give us time to review and put in place our new processes before sending further requests for military vessels to enter the country. these will universally apply to all visiting naval vessels. the move comes a week after our u. s. coast guard, the vessel was blocked from refueling and the capital of the solomon islands, which the white house called regrettable. in a statement from his embassy and australia, the usaa had received formal notification regarding a moratorium on old pending naval visits. there's a waiting updates and protocol procedures of this comes after the island chain signed a security packed with china that was in may now certainly raised alarms in washington . clearly we've seen the chinese bully and coerce nations throughout the endo
10:39 pm
pacific to do their bidding. and to serve what they believe their selfish national security interests are, rather than the broader interests of a free and open indo pacific. it's regrettable, we call it out when we see it. and delving dba hennessy, international crossing live now to matthew robinson, the former deputy foreign minister of new zealand. joining us here were naughty international. a great pleasure to have you with us. thank you so much for coming on the program just straight straight to the to the i guess the not some bolts of it hit. what do you think of the reasons behind what's being called a temporary ban on naval visits from foreign countries to the solomon islands? while the solomon islands, 2000 kilometers from the north of destroyer and from new zealand, is exercising its sovereign right against patton of bullying from the united states. and they are doing what every other country, which is sovereign does this,
10:40 pm
if we're going to have military naval visits, will determine who comes and when, and they're doing no more than my own country. new zealand does that countries, 1st of all, subject put the applications in. and if they're carrying nuclear weapons, we suspect the nuclear weapon. so you can't come in for whatever reason, the pilot. and actually it's quite relevant with the death of president. gorbachev course is well known throughout the world when people think it was policies the emphasize piece. this reaction united states and all the countries is one woods denying the life of the solomon islands to have its own sovereign policy. as part of the power play. in the pacific of the former colonial countries, which is still there. interesting, the written notice had 2 ships permanently posted in the pacific. this little
10:41 pm
island off the united kingdom that lost it's formal empire a long time ago. as part of the strategy of spreading the world, the french, big military present, and they're always in the china doesn't that which is the bottom of the united states and lighting the bottom island will become a strategic popular planner. and that's what's the bottom, exercising this off, what it's actually, i mean say you say that exercise, and that's often right matthew, and i must say i'm quite impressed and quite surprised by your, by your quite refreshing perspective on this, the parliament islands are a key archipelago and not part of the world us and, and other naval ships passing through there for years and years and years they've been refueling during their freedom of navigation acts and all this stuff in the
10:42 pm
other, you know, in this part of the world. obviously, the solomon islands are closer to australia and papa, and you, you get here. and of course, new zealand. but when you go north and you've got the asia pacific, you know, this is one massive theatre in that part of the world. and, and when you say bullying, bye bye bye bye. the u. s. over the i'm amazed really to hear that. i mean, you are the former deputy foreign minister of new zealand. does it all come down to the new security pack with china? well it's, it's bigger than that, it's certainly that china and the solomon islands have formed a number of agreements. one is a security agreement to do with the policing if there's any problems in the country . the other is economic ties. but this is been long proclaimed by the united states and its allies, nato allies, including times new zealand that this is al sphere of influence. you can just get lost to china. it's tied in with the tax on russia as well.
10:43 pm
and then you're dealing when you say you surprised, but when i was a cabinet minister, we had a stand off with the united states by being nuclear tree. and we said we wouldn't take part in the bullying. the red, almond and other parts of the world and we made else, then we criticize the radio being the deputy of the united states. unfortunately, my former colleague taken us neatly into later part of the loop pacific strategy. we've become the deputy sheriff deputies, you know, what was this made in? and that's again to the long term interest of new zealand to get to the long term interest. because this is actually reparation war. nobody can you say this is why i'm going to jump in on that. so you say this is preparation for. busy forgive me for jumping in here, but we've, we've heard the former australian foreign minister in the past in the past few
10:44 pm
years saying we've got 3 to 5 years before that. the next great war and australia, new zealand are going to be on the front line against china. what do you think of that? well, thank you very much for being a stranger new zealand into the, the former that's about the former defense minister. but the new labor prime ministers continuing the policy is trillion airplanes of buzzing chinese ships and planes. australian bosses and bowl it looks like the united states is setting up a proxy war as they have done in the ukraine with destroyer and taiwan. to lead the george with the united and it's a very dangerous situation. i mostly will never heard of the lions. and the only reason i say the, the colonial united states. they don't care about the people of the pacific care about like carry it out as a strategic asset militarily and economic and zealand. well is always
10:45 pm
been great opposition to the continue colonialism and pacific using the testing ground. we use zealand having become out, right, but he's probably been part of the us empire for a long time. we've been we've, it's all, it's been a position to that, but unfortunately we're going the country going back into that situation with a 1000 matthew robson. it's not often on international television. you hear such franken and lucid thoughts of the former deputy foreign minister of new zealand. i wish we had more time for this conversation. one day i'm going to buy you a beer. thanks for joining us here and fix that up to iraq now where at least 30 people have reported being killed as we understand now over 700 wounded this in clashes between protesters authorities in a different magic green zone of baghdad.
