thank. you from. from from. from . more russian after police received a wife from the olympics as fears grow the team russia could be prevented from competing in the upcoming winter games we hear the latest verdict on campbell from sports most of the other made it. clear that there was no claim to prove no one to. give them some tell you this hour germany could be on track for the sport well also investigations into individuals are continuing the international olympic committee says it will release the evidence against the banned athletes mclaren report came out in two thousand and sixteen with allegations of state sponsored doping in russia different monitoring organizations
3:01 pm
have looked into that searching for some sort of evidence to back up those claims but all we've seen is a noticeable lack of proof to back them up that we spoke with the water president who says well it hasn't been found yet it's just a matter of time let's take a listen keep saying there was no state sponsored dropping. the other most of the other evidence is. clear. with claims it doesn't prove no one to. give them some time so there we have him conceding that it's just been hinted at the idea that a state sponsor scheme was in place and saying just give us time but the question is how much time do they need and those parallel plates have actually voiced concerns that there's a possibility that a political motivation could be behind these decisions and again going back to the water present he conceded that it's impossible to divide the worlds of politics and sports politics seemed to me to be a bit of additional lives and if i played golf on
3:02 pm
a saturday to me to be unlikely that politics should stop at one o'clock and start again when i finish at five o'clock the politics everybody's lives of so they are bound to be involved. in some we try to flee every scene we do just part of what we do so at this point we're only three months out from the next winter olympics and it's important to remember that the whole russian team is under review at this point on the summer if it will be announced whether or not they will be able to participate in next year's games in south korea and even if the team is cleared there still the fact that over a dozen of the teammates have been banned for life at this point and will not be participating a russian footballers are also getting caught up in the doping scandal just six months of course before their country hosts the world cup grigori off the former russian official turned whistleblower says he has plenty of evidence of players doping however a fee for investigation has been ongoing since june this year and the footballing
3:03 pm
body says there is no evidence of any wrongdoing. sports journalist alan moore thinks that the new all the geishas are an attempt to discredit the world cup in russia. i think that six months later it will be very very unlikely simply would turn up and we probably will see more of this because this is making a lot of noise to take away from the russia world cup there is still a chance in their minds that the rules will be stripped from russian there could of of course be a chance that somebody will fail simply would at this stage look pavia unlikely russian football has been tested when spartak planes available we spoke to the players were taken from them testing. random testing is taking place around a russian premier league of course can always be better we know that it's as good as it is anywhere else in the world better and in most cases so you know this is just time to sort of like you know take care of roche's sales shall we say before friday. to more sporting matters all thirty two nations who will participate out
3:04 pm
the twenty first fifa world cup are known but who will be playing against who in the group stages that will be decided up the draw end moscow this friday the first of the summer prior to that fee for president giani in fun tino shared his thoughts on the sport's biggest showpiece event coming to the world's biggest country. we are expecting smooth operations everything has been done for de france to come to russia and to and to enjoy the world cup for instance a new concept with a fan ideas being put in place by the russian authorities by the russian government the fan idea which will allow visa free entry which will allow free transportation by train between the host cities and many other benefits for the fans we have already seen that the stadiums the stadiums and eleven also it is absolutely state of the art that they were in tears are very welcoming the country is welcoming the people want to see people from all over the world to come and discover that
3:05 pm
maybe they don't know and they will be very very positively surprised. the german chancellor her party's leaders have said they would be willing to return to this saying coalition that govern the country before september's vote. we are ready to engage in talks with the social democrats in a serious dedicated manner and of course aiming for success. following that invitation from chancellor merkel schultz of the social democrats accepted and said
3:06 pm
that his party would take part in coalition talks with representatives of angle of merkel's christian union and the german president frank bowker steinmeyer in berlin on thursday for missed the shots though this announcement but it represents a real one hundred eighty degree turnaround on how he views the grand coalition just a week ago and you know we're not entering a grand coalition we said this clearly after the elections and we still stand by this. time for shut out the s.p.d. party has confirmed that i should accept the invitation from the german president to take part in took with the chairman of the c.d.u. c.s.u. passes next thursday somebody far more insightful than myself once said that i think was a long time in politics and it certainly does seem to be true for angle in merkel as well seven days ago she was picking up the pieces after jamaica coalition talks broke down she said looking at the two options that would look like the only ones
3:07 pm
available to you were a minority rule or new elections that you would actually prefer new elections over ruling over a minority government well she has changed her mind on that somewhat saying that it wasn't a good idea right now to put the decision on who would govern germany back to the german people that they'd already made their minds up back in september and it was up to the politicians to try and hammer out a coalition so where are we right now two months on from the general election in germany lots of late nights lots of debates lots of of talks fail pork spend more talks on the horizon. and as it stands at the moment it looks like we could be going right back to the grand coalition that ruth germany before that you haven't people voted back in september those talks taking place in berlin on thursday i'll be back in the german capital then and bring you all of the latest as it emerges
3:08 pm
from those coalition talks here on r.t. a former german intelligence officer reiner rough patch believes angela merkel has good reason to oppose the idea of snap elections in germany the criticism of. mrs america has tremendously increased you know all parties so it's quite clear why she doesn't want new elections because there are serious considerations if this you would be able. to achieve even those used to numbers which to this. chancellor merkel would run again so new elections are quite out so that's sort of their only option for her is to try to force a force a speech to a grand coalition. the northern french port city of cali witness to violent incidents involving people smugglers and migrants over the
3:09 pm
weekend here so one of the city's police officers described a fence. sheila solace was a vehicle approaching the traffic by c.r.s. police went through the roadblock he then knocked down a police officer who was trying to stop him my colleague shot at him nine people were on the vehicle including one smuggler. in another incident and altercation took place between migrants and smugglers smugglers opened fire on migrants injuring five people one seriously. well during the migrant crisis calley experienced a huge buildup of migrants the jungle camp where many gathered became notorious it was used as a base by people hoping to travel to britain the camp was demolished last year but some of the problems associated with illegal migration still persist.
3:10 pm
here police officers on this job for twenty six years i cannot remember times when so many colleagues came to me to say that they wanted to leave the police but for me it's shocking shocking because i do not feel they're motivated any more they're stuck between a rock and a hard place administration the legal system and citizens they do not know any more
3:11 pm
where they are going to don't know any more. we also spoke with the deputy mayor of cali about the weekend's events he thinks the government should provide more support in dealing with migrants and deport those who commit offenses. it is unbelievable after all the problems we've met in the past. the government is not taking more action against those people. and it is really only realistic it's a bit away from the city center but it could happen to the city center why is the government not acting more strongly against those people if somebody's illegal in the country. even if he's young if an offense is done a serious offense is done most be sent back to his country or we talk to human
3:12 pm
rights advocate keep best he thinks that demolishing the callee migrant camp has just worsen the situation there. destroying the jungle taking away the original refugee camp which you may remember was there some years ago in sangatte itself the run by the red cross those don't help they only exacerbate the situation it's least we're stopping many of those refugees getting to hand out of food for example that just makes the situation worse it's a very very complicated situation i mean first of all i think any right minded person would have every sympathy with those truck drivers of many different nationalities who are having their windscreens smashed their tires slashed and who are being intimidated by these desperate people who want to get on board their trucks in order to stand a chance of getting to the u.k. and. turkey has reiterated its call for the us to stop arming kurdish why
3:13 pm
b.g. fighters in syria and previews as terrorists it follows on a par and pledge from donald trump to stop supplying weapons to the militia grouping others played an instrumental role in driving back islamic thing. the we will not give weapons remarks from a u.s. president for the first time is important but it will lose value if it's not implemented that would be deceiving the world if washington does stop supplying weapons to the kurds it's likely to go some way to easing the current tension between the u.s. and turkey has been highly critical of washington for arming what it sees as terrorists and using them to fight islamist extremist groups america for its part assigned with the various kurdish groups when it needs their help the spike turkey's protests siniora can brings us more. kurds the largest stateless
3:14 pm
minority in the world the kurdish population is in turkey iraq and syria and it seems for the us it's more about where they are rather than who they are. let's start with turkey on one side and cora washington's regional and nato ally on the other and car a sworn enemy the rebellious kurdistan workers party fight against the dash terrorist organisation should not be left with another terror organization we want to believe that our allies would choose to stand beside us and not on the side of terrorist organizations well the choice is obvious and the us lists the p.k. k. as a terrorist group we support turkey in the first fight against terror and terror groups like isis and the p.k. k. . over in iraq the kurdish peshmerga were crucial when the us fight against the islamic state washington put up money and provided all the weapons they
3:15 pm
needed but with most of the fighting over so is america's benevolence iraqi kurds are losing the oil wells they fought out of terrorist control and the reserves are now going back under government control the us ability and baghdad. the kurdish push for independence has also received the cold shoulder with secretary thorsten stating that the referendum and its results lack legitimacy and the u.s. supports a united iraq the disappointment is very good although we have a long negative experience with america and the wrong size the sand talked to our buddy who they had a strong. position against that a friend on encouraged our body and the iraqi government to come saw strongly the one in the position of a that they think they can even cancellara really mean it's the status of it that i was
3:16 pm
a man called to stop. off to neighboring syria where the kurdish y p g also got everything they needed from the u.s. in their fight against eisel money weapons training and praise we should be using recruiting which we should be doing the kurdish they've proven to be the best meters really proving to be the most real do it and we should be working with them much more suitable. but they managed to hang on to the oil fields that they liberated with no questions from their american pals washington claims that it seeks a unified and sovereign syria but it also wants a syria without assad i think the united states will continue to support the kurds we heard general mattis and the secretary of defense say only a few days ago that the united states would remain in northern syria in order to give traction to that you need of process and that means that the united states wants leverage they want leverage against us against russia and against iran and of
3:17 pm
course the kurdish troops that the united states has been arming now own about twenty five percent of syria's territory in the north end somewhere around fifty percent of all the oil and gas in syria so this gives the kurds quite a bit of leverage well that's unless turkey gets its way they're saying. mr trump clearly stated that he had given clear instructions not to provide the white b.g. with arms and that this nonsense should have ended long ago. so the arabia has hosted islam a country terrorism summit which is already being described as a meeting of n r a but nato it was opened by the saudi crown prince who underlined the importance of the alliance. somewhat for the last few years terrorism was at large in all our countries and most of these groups have been working in several countries at a time without there being
3:18 pm
a strong coordination between muslim countries but now we have this alliance that brings religion or justice into disrepute or human rights watch say's the new law undermines due process for trial rights to the us all this further i'm happy to say that certainly a whitson from that organization is live on the program this hour hello to you saying that this is aimed at bottling extremist and we did hear a lot of criticism against saudi arabia done the years for promoting that one hobby is a stretch of. islam is that not what is going on here. need a new counterterrorism mission goes much much further than what any terrorism legislation should do it is not limited by its terms to people who commit violence or political and carry out other crimes for political and more rather we includes
3:19 pm
a wide variety of so-called offenses that really aren't offenses that are also not only does the log scribing them as crimes describing them as terrorism for which people would go to jail is this a step back you see it in terms of human rights in that region. well i mean de outrider counterterrorism law was probably worse than the current law there are some small tweaks and improvements in that actually include specific sentences for some of the so-called lesser terrorist offenses but the fundamental problem remains that for example criticizing the crown prince or the king in a manner that supposedly harms the reputation of justice or religion is a terrorist the fence and what the government has done is use this terrorism law to put critics of political matters in jail but nonetheless the crown prince is tolerated by some as
3:20 pm
a modern leader protect me in contrast to others there is their hope for improvement in saudi arabia with respect to human rights as you see it. well i think there is with respect to women for example he's promised to allow them finally to drive over weeks rather embarrassing this is something resteal need to be looking forward to in two thousand and seventeen he's also promised to dismantle some of the guardianship laws that treat women as children for their whole lives so those are good things that we haven't seen any progress. well i'm certainly hopeful our but a lot has to change you know there was once a time when king decreed a prior king of saudi arabia decreed the girls would go to school and so it was done he didn't wait for the culture of the people to catch up you just to create it so if the king wanted today to end discrimination against women in saudi arabia he could do that with a decree thanks as always for great insight into the big issues of the day star
3:21 pm
leah whitson from human rights watch. the church of sweden has been forced to respond to claims that it's ruled gold must only be referred to in gender neutral terms the story was spread by a number of international news outlets. of course the traditional expressions of christian faith remain in the new worship book however some gender neutral ways of addressing god have been added in some prayers in swedish there is nowadays an official agenda neutral pronoun hen this word is not used at all in the worship book what is in fact happening is this at the beginning of services it will be deemed acceptable to use three different ways of describing the goal and one of those will be gender neutral and the holy spirit will also be referred to in the female a grammatical gender or so reaction i got from guests. john reduces languages for example when it says blessedness a man who walks not in the council of the ungodly we understand that the word means
3:22 pm
men and women when we talk about mankind it is just mean to the exclusion of all of us so we reject this divisiveness this setting men and women the future of the real in real life we have to get on with each other because churches should modernize of course over this organization that indeed all organizations to continually seat to modernize and to promote greater equality between the sexes and also you know between different races and between people from all sorts of different backgrounds and different life experiences and you know what but the church has a very poor history on this it's not it's not a question of it catching up with the times it's way behind the times it has a history of treating women pretty horrifically you know the best plan would be to get rid of it and frankly also you know to get rid of those people advocating for it by talking about the issues which are how do we present the christian faith to people out there and i believe that we do that by being faithful to the scriptures faithful to the to the witness and the ministry of the lord jesus christ if we want
3:23 pm
to look at it like what the actual scripture says as a person of jesus christ that's what it's all about that maybe people are going to arrest to forgive us our sins or did he not that's to us but it's a question we must all be asking ourselves why he didn't really there's not much evidence to suggest he did seems pretty clear that that he thought that he was i mean it was also also the discussion must be conducted in a childish way that of course of course there is overwhelming evidence of the life of course not least in the gospels and that's where i'm standing. a hospital in western poland is under fire for installing a far from welcoming and provocative sign of its entrance it says that entry is forbidden to jews call me's and traitors of poland the hostel is run by an ultra nationalist who was sentenced to three months house arrest earlier this year for burning an effigy of a jewish person during a migrant demonstration local authorities are looking into whether to charge him with incitement because of the banner here's what some local say. ladies it was then well this is his opinion some day he will be hung for things like this banner
3:24 pm
. you know some students like i oppose such ban is as i'm not a racist i reject such propaganda anyone can place was over the ones on the fence but it's a mythical and not the way for people to behave one can do such things when this is just so far from the live i think we should be tolerant you cannot ban certain groups of people from entering and no one may come to our village the main thing is that they behave well and respect the law. well the world jewish congress made it clear accusing polish authorities of failing to prosecute the hostile owner is really jewish studies professor jeffrey wolf told us there's a worrying rise an anti semitism in poland the jewish population is very very concerned they find it very worrying i spoke to a number representing a number of representatives of the community today but on the other hand they know
3:25 pm
how much good work that has been done and is ongoing between the jewish community in warsaw and and elsewhere in krakow and the jewish community and the and the general community for example the fact that the metal we're seeing the latter because i think we'll see a major price correction and somewhere at the twenty five thousand dollars for a bit coin level up until that price is achieved it looks like waltz.
