the. u.s. and russia brokered ceasefire comes into force in the syrian city of people there enjoying their first peaceful day after six years of fighting. in the week's top stories have a. g. twenty right right the german city resulting in hundreds of injuries among police and protesters plus. i. c n n is accused of blackmailing
the creator of president wrestling clips to reveal his identity if he does something similar again. but i welcome the latest developments and a look back at what's been happening over the last seven days to you watching the weekly here on r.t. international now just a few hours ago a u.s. and russian brokered ceasefire came into force in the syrian city of daraa after six years of relentless fighting people there have finally enjoyed a relatively peaceful. you know. i'm maybe deliberately. watched.
the syrian cease fire came as an unexpected breakthrough following the meeting between president putin and donald trump on the sidelines of the g. twenty summit in hamburg and he said he has the details. following the first face to face meeting between president trump president putin the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has announced that the u.s. and russia has agreed on a new cease fire in the south western of syria that would take into effect at noon damascus time on july ninth take a listen to the details of this new cease fire zone the school that's russia the u.s. and jordan reach a cease fire agreements with syria the cease fire will come into effect in three areas there. and it will come into force on the ninth of july the u.s. and russia have committed to monitoring the cease fire and ensuring humanitarian access to the areas initially security of these areas will be ensured by russian military police and close cooperation with the u.s.
and jordan now these three southern provinces that lavrov mentioned also share a border with jordan which is also part of this new agreement however another country that these three southern provinces which i believe can show you on a map on the screen now also share a border with israel and this area includes that this golan heights of this area between syria and israel and according to the u.n. is a syrian territory occupied by israel since sixty's and over the recent weeks there's been a surge of quasi border exchanges of fire and this new the escalation zone can potentially avoid such incidents in the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson he said this new agreement shows his first indication that the u.s. and russia can work together and cooperate with each other in syria the russian president vladimir putin he also expressed the optimistic tone of this take a listen. to regarding whether the u.s. is action on syria has changed i think it's become more pragmatic in general it doesn't seem to change but there is now an understanding that we can achieve
a lot in the united effort now bear in mind that this is no doubt a breakthrough in terms of u.s. russia relations showing that the two countries can work with each other in syria however it be too optimistic to see this as a breakthrough of the entire syrian conflict as a whole as you know prior to this numerous the escalation zones happened set up and countless sea. by happen agreed on and both sides have accused each other of violating them and so it's there's still a lot of answer to questions regarding the syrian conflict where the most crucial one being the political future of the assad government. let me say there were let's get the thoughts now of our former u.k. ambassador to syria peter ford good evening she paid to look so far so good isn't it with this ceasefire but we've seen ceasefire arranged before in syria and fail should we be a lot more optimistic about this one yes i think we should be fairly optimistic because previous three fires failed because there were powerful spoilers in the
aleppo case. the al qaida affiliate which was very strong and was able to disrupt the cease fires there in the south the military situation is different most of the fighting forces on the rebel side are smaller groups affiliated with the so-called free syrian army. affiliated groups of very small in numbers. however there are pockets of i think there and of course they're not involved in the three fire they will continue to be targeted i think both sides the syrian government side with russia behind it the rebel side in the southwest with america behind them want this to work so hopeful that it will hold at least for several months why pay to think this area in the
southwest miss chaves and then for this particular cease fire. the conditions were right. and effective stand still in the area since march when it was it was first mentioned as a zone for the confliction or the escalation in the ass done talks and the defense military stand still the syrian government could retake the towns that the area particularly there are but they don't want to raise to the ground in the way the iraqi government for through america behind them have just raised much of mosul. and it would be two or altogether too costly at the same time the rebel forces in the area don't represent a strategic threat to the syrian government the syrian government has bigger fish
to fry in other parts of syria and this is the real significance of this agreement it will free up the kalyan syrian government forces to go fight against isis in daters or in the north east a much more important town. and other areas. in the central spine of the country in homs province and with regard to the meeting between president trump and also president putin at the g twenty does this signify a new relationship perhaps and perhaps. a more pragmatic approach to finding a solution for the problems of syria. to it to a degree yes i think there is a tactical convergence here who. recognize the
fact. that. you have to give trump some credit for perfectly varying this with this at a time when he is under a lot of pressure at home over alleged russian connections. but this gives him something concrete to show to detractors that he isn't managing to make some semblance of peace in one part of syria but on the russian side i think the gains are greater because as i just said this agreement frees up. therion government forces and its allies to go after bigger fish kate pay to look good to talk to you tonight there was a former u.k. ambassador to syria peter ford thank you thank you now the first meeting between the russian and american presidents was held behind closed doors at that g twenty summit in hamburg this week and much of what was discussed was not made public
although that in a putin did however share his personal impressions of the u.s. leader afterwards. down national closer to trump and i have established a relationship it may sound strange but trump in real life is completely different to when he's on t.v. he's very businesslike and easy to talk with i think if we continue to work together in the way we did yesterday we will be able to restore relations between the u.s. and russia and bring corporation between our countries to a new level. well it wasn't our only piece an interim drawing everybody's attention the g. twenty summits or lots of new faces talking as well as old friends getting together .
well thousands of left wing militants from across europe converged on the city and i tossed cars and piles of rubbish to vandalize and new to chop soso and left glass and debris strewn across the streets the right has also clashed violently with police while the violence reportedly left something like two hundred officers injured many business owners tell you after the first wave of riots took steps to protect their premises and boarded up their windows some said parts of the city now look like a war zone peter all of it was following the armrest that force. tensions have boiled over between demonstrators and the police. i can see the main body of the crowd and saw this but. everyone seriously so you can see that that really you of course have been is what can you please describe for me what happened where you were well as far as i could tell there were
attack in the demonstration with no. she's part of a. civil war the violence is all full and i also don't understand the message they want to send me his violence he simply tragic. that is a call some form sportscar belief that's been. roaming the moments of small bits of violence and the police come in to try and put it out war to come and we used pepper spray was used. to. hear the crowd chanting away that on sci fi she's the build of on sci fi chants going on old under the watchful eye if we move the camera over here over the watchful eye of a lot of police officers i didn't i did. not wish
to keep a bit vigilant here because we are seeing already what's the flower being thrown at the police just as you can see there we're actually right between the police and the demonstrators right now so we're going to try and get out of the way just well moment while i'm talking to you not the best place to be it. has a huge call of police officers that's marching through the city then leading the demonstrates is. i think. it's continued on days over the last twenty four hours now as you can see just behind me it is actually more walls account in a riving at the intersection where i am. i don't think they will say a quiet tense scene here just a long time ago with by a number of bottles were being thrown the police responded with water cannon we see . there is certainly a very large police presence a helicopter flying overhead many other emergency vehicles around but there's also
an awful lot of demonstrate. it is here. this is the scene in hamburg as you can see a heavy police presence there just marching past me the older came through from police that this base in the section here this junction had to be cleared there is a section of demonstrators just over there you may be able to see water kalin being used every time they try and come closer to this intersection they get sprayed back . you can see just over here the advertising hoardings have been vandalized there behind me is a bank that was all it was locked up but it's now also been all smashed up over my right shoulder there i spoke to some of the shop owners that are based here about what their plans were some were saying they were going to board them up some load
saying they were going to wait it out and stay inside the store twenty four hours a day some owners are covering windows so they don't get broken a lot of places are closed so we couldn't work productively because a total collapse of transportation was in my opinion you can't organize the g. twenty two in a left wing liberal area especially in hamburg which is famous for its demonstrators it is one of the major centers for counter culture in germany one of the major centers indeed for the fall left here just over my left shoulder is a place called they are off the floor it's a major hub for left wing groups here and it was from there that a lot of the organizing of these demonstrations originated from of course this area ending up being web a lot of the violence took place on. paper
all of the reporting now what he bronson from the alternative to germany party telling us the. given the strength of radical left wing sentiment in the city violence was always very much a possibility. how big it is well known for its left wing. sometimes extremist views so this shouldn't have been a surprise for anybody really well i believe that two groups of people who actually traveled. to take part in this one group is very peaceful they want to stage their protest they perfectly in their right every german has the right to assemble freely without weapons it's part of the constitutional law the second group. they didn't want to have any peaceful demonstrations they were set for trouble you have these i call them demolition tourists they travel from all over europe i know all of the germany to take part in a protest that is bound to be violent that is bound to destroy shops looting of
supermarkets but they had no interest whatsoever in a peaceful protest and sadly this small but very violent group is now attracting all the attention of course the peaceful protesters are upset because this is not how you should stage your prostates your protest should always always be peaceful to be heard still ahead this hour an hour to the web or between c.n.n. and donald trump is still running at full steam have the details after the break. here's what people have been saying about rejecting exactly it's. the only show i go out of my way to the times you know it was really packed the. league is the john
oliver of harvey americans do the same. apparently better than blue. see or heard of love for the next president of the world bank very. seriously send us an e-mail. in case you're new to the game this is how it works my economy is built around corporations corporations from washington to washington to meet. the. voters elect the businessman to run this country business because. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. c.n.n. found itself at the center of an internet this week to track down the creator of the. trump wrestling the channel's logo the video had been tweeted by the president
a few days earlier leading c.n.n. to say to encourage violence against reporters however the channel found itself in hot water off when it decided to find the man behind the main. has the story. so this guy makes a humorous little video and then it blows up someone edited it donald trump found it and posted it on his twitter feed i. got millions of views hundreds of thousands of likes and many people had a laugh c.n.n. did not like being laughed at not one bit they launched a manhunt for the original creator of the video what they did is doxie it is digging up private information on someone always something and then publishing it can be used for law enforcement for business extortion coercion harassment
online shaming and vigilante justice the reaction has been furious even songes way did on the matter saying that potentially what c.n.n. did may be a crime a multi-billion dollar t.v. network blackmailing a private citizen into not making funny videos about it is not journalism c.n.n. and c.n.n. succeeded they found the original creator and he has since apologized and promised never to make another video critical of c.n.n. channel says when they finally talk to him he sounded nervous as well he might c.n.n. is threatening to publish his identity for all the loonies in the world to know if he ever stops being sorry it's right there on their website c.n.n. reserves the right to publish his identity if he stops being sorry if anything
changes isn't that the deficient of blackmail. while in the backlash that followed the c.n.n. journalist who wrote about the identity of the man behind the clip tweeted this response to the blackmail claims he says their line was misinterpreted and that they simply meant c.n.n. made no agreement about handling the man's identity still the damage was done and the internet hit back with even more means bashing c.n.n. . thanks thanks thanks. thanks thanks we spoke
exclusively to a moderator for the reddit website section where the clip originated he asked us to conceal his identity just so you're the scar on a solo on the guy who posted the original guess it would be frightening if i were him and i received random phone calls or in an email from c. mail out of nowhere i would not be super tuesday yesterday about so you know more about why arduous news communities in the world certainly not work at throats about telling you to start doing what you want to do on the internet. has no right to do that c.n.n. has all of the internet against them right now and one organizations attacks freedom of speech and never ends up well for them and make no mistake about it this is an attack on the internet and c.n.n. has formally declared war on it in return we need to hit c.n.n. were hurt and told or ever tells you that you do not approve of them by running ads
on their network our site right now on the road the people who are pushing this you know hash tag on there are exposing c.n.n. for the fraud news network that they are on are doing the right thing. in other news this week the us threaten north korea with military force someone stay after appealing young testified and a missile the warning can join an emergency meeting of the un security council. the united states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies one of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces we will use them if we must what america believes it was an intercontinental ballistic missile that was launched by north korea russia's defense ministry disagrees saying it doesn't believe it has that sort of range moscow is currently calling on both sides to find a political solution to this standoff and russia said this is i think that with
china laid out a set of proposals for easing the tensions they suggested that north korea stops testing its weapons and that the u.s. and south korea suspend large scale military exercises in the region washington was also last to hold its deployment of missile defense systems in south korea however that was rejected by the u.s. and on wednesday so in washington fired their own missiles into the sea of japan which were seen as warning shots for north korea a number of analysts that we spoke to say that it is america's actions that could provoke a conflict in the region. but north korea launched a missile that wasn't intended to hurt anyone and it did not hurt anyone and what we saw at the united nations today was the continuation of the spectacle in which the united states and her increasingly view are lies or using by an international body of peace as a climate of global apartheid to justify and rubberstamp wars and saying sions
which amount to war they're going to be watching today's proceedings they're going to hate the united states even more than they already do they'll see russia and china is countries which don't necessarily always agree with them countries which on allies to them but countries which do not wish them and the people home countries that want to engage in peace the countries that could end up saving north korea from american aggression and they will smile upon that surely the u.s. is sending the same message that they have been sending for seventy years and that is to threaten again and again and again the people of the democratic people's republic of korea and the reality of us endless endless threats on the people of korea has ratcheted up now the sanctions a new round of sanctions a new round of threatening other countries that have any trade or economic relations with the d.p. r. k. . even watch the weekly here not

although the beginning since a nato member and sixteen she in the skull so i call it sign deep trouble and. retard it's not europe a surrounded by my enemies and one of them at the certain moment was president and what about russia you know it better than me i did which for intel relations are now. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you were a south in taken your last wrong turn. your attitude up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry. so i write these last words and hopes to put to rest piece things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to. change you talked about war like it
