a major cold war nuclear agreement causing further divisions within. europe and its transatlantic and the us unwilling to freeze arms sales to saudi arabia in the wake of the killing of journalist. and i welcome to the week here in our to international hawkins wherever you are today thanks for joining us the program this hour. accounting is underway in local elections in a german region of exit polls suggest the right wing party will win a place in the parliament giving it representation in every region in the country and also show waning support for traditional parties in favor of the green zone of the left wing forces political analyst stephen meissner believes ruling parties are going to need to change their politics if they want to stay in power. state
2:02 pm
election of probably a proxy vote nationally as well that's not just a local thought it will definitely put markel in a weak position she's been getting weaker and weaker as and more and more unpopular and now if they lose and they seem to have lost big there as well again i would expect she'd be under a pretty severe pressure now. as far as the support on the federal level that at some point this city you is going to have to look for a new face she's getting very unpopular i think she's a more of a liability for the party than she is a positive fact for instance there have been these so-called. demonstrations going on for about a year and a half now that means in german the english translation is merkel has to go and i don't ever remember seeing shrewder like the chancellor before. the girl
2:03 pm
demonstrations or before him was called i don't ever remember as having demonstrations here in germany saying call has to go lisa a part of the population she's become really highly unpopular. on tuesday the u.s. president again threatened the new arms race with russia and china that's just days after he announced he was pulling his country out of a major nuclear treaty signed during the cold war don't trump also repeated his earlier accusations saying moscow was in breach of the i.n.f. accord. years ago. we have money that anybody else. will build it up until they got there when they. told me. by the way not only will we do a moscow insists hasn't violated the nuclear treaty and believes it should be preserved saying it's in fact washington that's not been sticking to the deal russia's foreign minister has recently said the u.s.
2:04 pm
sent a list of its concerns to moscow just days before out saying it's the solution to quit leaving it no time to reply under the agreement to sign back in one hundred eighty seven all short on mid-range nuclear conventional missiles were banned with the exception of those launch that sea washington says it's in talks with its european allies about its withdrawal some of which aren't too happy about the move . the announcement by the u.s. that it's going to withdraw from the i.m.f. accord is regrettable the i.n.f. agreement has been important pillar of our european security architecture for thirty years for us in europe it's of great importance we call on the u.s. to consider the possible consequences the u.s. and russia need to remain engaged in constructive dialogue to preserve the treaty and to ensure. it to ensure its cool and verifiable implementation which of course is crucial for europe's and global security problem is as others have
2:05 pm
pointed out in particular this is a problem i think for europeans that this treaty was designed to prevent or reduce the risk of nuclear weapons being used by the nuclear threshold being lowered and not should we say long range heavy nuclear weapons being used against the united states and the soviet union or today russia but that with the shorter range weapons it would be europe western europe that would become the nuclear battlefield and there's some concern i think a great deal of concern amongst all european leaders except the united kingdom who yesterday have stated that they support the american position predictably enough there is concern that this reduces the prospects for nuclear disarmament increases risks for west europe and its people. a little surprise then that america's plans to pull out of the accord dominated tuesday's meeting between u.s. national security advisor john bolton and president putin and all of the subject at
2:06 pm
hand was certainly no laughing matter there was still room for a little humor. as far as i remember there is an eagle on the us national emblem and there are thirteen arrows in one foot and an olive branch with thirteen olives as a symbol of peaceful policy in the other my question is did your eagle eat all the olives and leave just the arrows. and grateful for the opportunity to speak with you on behalf of president and hopefully i'll have a smelters for you but i didn't bring any more all of. them that's what i thought. and so in the talks putin said he was puzzled by washington's move in the absence of any provocation from moscow as for the i.m.f. treaty itself john bolton called it outdated and insists that it should be revised to include other nations most notably china is a national affairs commentator is often still believes it's the fear of beijing's growing military might that's behind the troops plans. many commentators think that this is the american decision is linked more to china than to russia because the
2:07 pm
chinese are not part of the treaty they've been developing their missile capabilities and there are military capabilities in southeast asia in the south china sea and the americans want to be able to confront them and the treaty which we're talking about prevents the americans of course deploying missiles not just in europe and in asia as well and the americans want to get out of it so they can start putting missiles that. trumps threat to ditch the treaty falls in line with his america first policy but i guess if has more what are our missions of the president. donald trump can be called any number of things good bad it all depends on which side you're on interesting me enough though it's donald trump that keeps giving donald trump new titles a globalists is a person that wants to float to do well frankly not caring about our country so
2:08 pm
much you know what i am a nationalist ok. karna obvious if you think about it what with all this talk of greatness walls and how special exceptional americans are it's going to be only america first american people first america's interests above all else are murky. now if i may mr president you could be confused about what those words mean it's right there in any dictionary globalism and national policy of treating the whole world as a proper sphere for political influence a globalist is someone who treats the entire world as a playground making national decisions. which affect the international community in simple terms google ism is when mr trump tells south korea meaning outside
2:09 pm
america that they can't lift sanctions their own sanctions on north korea without his permission but they won't do it without her approval they do nothing without her approval and by the way us sanctions which basically force everyone to abide by them because of how the dollar works by definition a globalist venture you know what else is globalist war invading other countries the us currently fighting in seven wards that's really really globalist as well.
2:10 pm
the united states military's one of the most globalist organizations in the world it has bases in roughly every third country one in three nations has a u.s. military base in it that isn't nationalism that's good lobel ism i just want to see them as well straighten out regime that frankly could be toppled very quickly by the military regime change we're placing or helping replace governments you just don't like via arming local rebels to the teeth or financing the opposition by sanctions that's globalism glow lism chance purposes to talk about globalism as the enemy but if you look at the politics it's anything but nationalist trumps attitude to the world as an individual is that he should have complete sovereignty and that includes sovereignty abuse the sovereign. you know he wants america to be able to go and do business wherever they want he wants to be
2:11 pm
able to remove regimes that he doesn't like he wants to act truly globally but in the national interest as donald trump himself conceives it he is a fun fact the word globalism its modern meaning was first used to describe u.s. imperialism after the second world war the way the united states which wasn't destroyed by the war like europe dominated in international trade pushing its products its ideology its politics on every what it could they called it american globalism so hearing mr trump who believes in returning america back to its glory days say that he isn't a globalist is like hearing the pope say with a straight face that really he isn't catholic right after the break europe canada and the us rule out any halt to arms sales to saudi arabia that's what the killing of the saudi journalists amount to so as you will see within
2:12 pm
a few minutes. with this manufacture consent to stick to the public will. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the final merry go round be the one person. we can all middle of the room see. the real news is really. trying to help you come up with a lot of statements saying that the arab states of the gulf should take care of the middle east or other we're still committed to the middle east so there's there's
2:13 pm
a lot of incoherence there but i think saudi arabia is hugely important to the united states and i think trump understands that and this is this is exactly what was driving his kind of commentary on the. killing i think that's at the end of the day it's not going to change the status quo of americans possibly so if you go. back to all times the national turkey continues to demand the killers of a saudi journalist all brought to trial the turkish president says the murder of jamal khashoggi in istanbul was politically motivated. our security and intelligence service is still analyzing the info they have it's already clear that the murder of jamal khashoggi. since this is a political assassination also closely inclusion of possible foreign accomplices.
2:14 pm
the saudi royal family has met with. brother to express condolences eldest son was pictured shaking hands with a saudi crown prince who suspected of orchestrating the killing of his father he left saudi arabia for washington according to some sources the u.s. president this week condemned the cover up of the. but still stressed the importance of continued weapon sales to riyadh. cover up was one of the worst in the history of cover ups. saudi arabia has been a really great ally but one of the biggest investors maybe the biggest investor. they are doing hundreds of billions of dollars worth of investments and you know so many jobs so many. thousands and thousands of jobs they've been funding a lot of things trumps statement was met with huge criticism by e.u. powers but they're refusing to cancel multibillion dollar arms sales to saudi
2:15 pm
arabia so far germany is the only exception. i agree with all those who say that exports which are already limited must not take place in the concert. and i don't have to react to every single statement so i won't answer that question. if you are interested in the issues related to this event. but this is not a press conference. and it's not a press conference to react german chancellor. has nothing to do with this event nothing and. nothing so i want let's get some context on that france is one of the biggest sellers of defense and on this equipment in the world and saudi arabia is one of its biggest clients despite the fact that president has tried to play down the trade relations between the two countries the figures don't lie between two thousand and eight and two thousand and seventeen
2:16 pm
deals with more than twelve billion dollars was struck between the two countries and that seems to be a similar thing that we're hearing in spain where they have said that they will not deal with saudi arabia worth two billion dollars. by the previous government which correspond to the demands of international and national law especially considering the un resolution on the head of the government now my duty is to take legal security and to comply with international obligations and it. well it seems that that's a similar view that's being taken by the canadians now they have deals with saudi arabia that are worth almost twelve billion dollars and the prime minister there just in food has said that he's more concerned about the cancellation fee which is around one billion dollars if they decide not to go ahead with that contract then roll that than holding saudi arabia to account for the killing of journalist it is
2:17 pm
only acceptable in. google that someone could have murdered a journalist on foreign soil like this i do not want to leave canadians holding a billion dollar bill because we're trying to move forward on doing the right thing seems not much also coming from beginning to that which is the second biggest supplier of arabia just behind us with heels worth around fifteen billion dollars now the idea of sanctions it was following the foreign secretary jeremy hunt but no clear indication of what those sanctions could be over whether they'll be applied when the prime in the situation may was questioned about this well she said she would speak to the king of saudi arabia no concrete information or whether they would be sanctions against the country it seems that they were germany is the only country it's going alone and putting its neck out in suspending and canceling
2:18 pm
these contracts in georgia because one of its the defense spokesman for the party says no crimes will stop europe selling arms to riyadh because simply too much money involved. we know that there were many a violation of human rights. but above all in yemen and it's not time anymore for just words it's time for action and i think that just buying time by saying that they would wait for further and curious it's sad but the european union and especially our french president. he's backing one of the worst you can tree which is really doing one of the worst war in the world. and other headlines it's feared an oil leak in the gulf of mexico which has been ongoing for fourteen years now could become america's worst ever environmental disaster back in two thousand and four hurricane ivan slammed into florida's gulf coast severely
2:19 pm
damaging an offshore drilling operation just louisiana however the company in charge managed to cover up the incident for a whole six years. thanks . flying over the gulf of mexico a research. gas bubbling in a miles long slick people are not the only ones who call the now polluted waters and for the indigenous animals there are countless birds and wildlife the stakes are high life or death time is running.
2:20 pm
i suppose the difference is that. there was a big explosion. instantly and the and then the moves the mood was. released extremely rapidly in the case of the two look at. first the original incident. it was in the context of american idol and both the company and the american regulators managed to keep the entire incident pretty quiet it's one of those long running accidents which. the reporting points of view but over the course of fourteen years with as many as seven hundred morros a daily of oil being leaked into the gulf it adds up to being the same kind of food as the deepwater rigs and. our twenty fifteen at the company in question said there
2:21 pm
was no evidence to suggest that ongoing leak or any significant environmental damage but as i'm given any further explanation since then journalists thought of article again says even routine oil leaks or assaulting a great damage. the gulf is currently producing something something like twenty percent of america's oil rather a highly rated accident through fires breaking out every few days there's a high rate of oil spill with pollutants in the hundreds of thousands of ground you know just through new york. and this entire gulf coast is highly industrial used and it is bound. to months of modes and of course those environmental impacts impact other industries which are also tourism and fish roos show finish tens of thousands of miles of oil pipelines transect to this entire region and if you've got a pipeline then. two hundred leaks. white supremacist running as the
2:22 pm
republican congressional candidate in the chicago area is trying to appeal to voters in the arab community with anti israel and anti gay rhetoric arthur jones plays the campaign advertisement of an arab american. paper well he didn't quite get the response he wanted. the holocaust is a fact you know it's real. ridiculous . for white superior to blacks. no question about it you know that's racist. you know that's true but i consider myself a way to refill those. shoes
2:23 pm
flung it speak his soul banged on podiums make think asian look parents in politics for the e.u. reject that it's a nice proposed new budget it was the son of an italian to put his foot all rather his shoe down.
2:24 pm
it's the first time the european commission has rejected any member states budget proposal the block gave room three weeks to revise its spending plans auntie's double quarter break style dispute. brussels a sharpening its knife in preparation for a new battle with rome for the first time the e.u. has flat out rejected a member state's budget demanding a resubmission. for the first time as a commission is obliged to the. country that it was off budget. but we seen nor. to do so it is really into the whole. the e.u. claims that italy's debt situation is out of control and that salvini is government needs to tighten its purse strings and fulfill its obligations the euro skeptics
2:25 pm
say it doesn't have anything to do with money since there are other states with bloated budgets that have never felt such a heavy hand from brussels this is the first time in budget the e.u. doesn't like no surprise this is the first italian budget written in rome and not in brussels. you tell me an economy is healthy and this is an economic move that will give its leaders to pretty needs we won't change one comma in this document to . be you know to go to. the. future. that spain belgium portugal and slovenia have all been in violation of the e.u. agreements in the past and for years france has broken the three percent deficit threshold imposed on it by the e.u. as for debt it's been in the red since two thousand and two and only this year the second largest european economy received
2:26 pm
a carefully worded letter in response asking all very politely to reduce its debts . we thank you for sending the front twenty nineteen draft budget that we received on october fifteenth we would like to ask you for more details the commission's preliminary assessment also indicates that the growth rate for france does not respect the reference rate of ditch reduction in twenty nineteen so italy refused to be taken to heel by this double standard. except the e.u. commissioner in charge of budgets didn't seem to find the stunt very funny even connecting the italian shushan and against to a potential quick path to fascism the episode of the made in italy shoe is grotesque at first you smile and we trivialize it because it's ridiculous but then we start getting used to this kind of muted symbolic violence and one day we wake up with fascism stay alert democracy is
2:27 pm
a fragile treasure or the draft budget would have seen over five hundred million dollars worth of cuts to defense spending while putting more money towards social welfare and tax cuts not exactly a sound way to revive fascism and certainly not a good way to be a shoo in with the new donald quarter r.t. . so i just come up top was not here in moscow that's the rundown for this hour for myself from the team join us again in about thirty five minutes for the latest global news updates.
