11:01 am
followed seven pm this wednesday the thirteenth of december i'm kevin though in this is our international first let's start with the big news in from turkey this out there the organization for islamic cooperation earlier this afternoon called on the international community to recognize east jerusalem as the capital of palestine has been following the most of the session for us as counsel for the she's in she's in cairo egypt now what what was said at the summit. you know you're in jerusalem so i want to correct it so it's all interesting somewhat. but. yes that's right kevin i mean she recently in fact i mean east jerusalem just outside of damascus gate and this is an extraordinary night because according to those fifty seven leaders of countries muslim countries across the world that met at that extraordinary meeting in istanbul today this is the. obviously corporation east
11:02 am
jerusalem where i am now is the capital of palestine direct contradiction to what we heard from donald trump a week ago when he declared that the whole of jerusalem undivided jerusalem was recognized by the u.s. as being the capital of israel pitting this side against each other now in not meeting that extraordinary meeting that was balkanized by chickies president the one we heard them including countries that normally don't talk to each other such as saudi arabia and iran condemning that motion not pronunciation by it donald trump we also heard that they the oh i see call for all the countries of course the world to now recognize he east jerusalem as being the capital of palestine we also heard from the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas who said he would now go to the u.n. security council and ask them to ensure that palestine has full membership take
11:03 am
a listen to what he said. and he. will go to the general assembly regarding the membership of israel because it's not in line with the international resolution of the also go to the peace and security council to consider the question of palestine as full membership and. we also heard at the oh i see today that they believe that the u.s. has lost its ability to be a mediator in the peace process between israel and palestine that was something that was echoed by the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas himself they saying that that meeting also chirk he agreed to a nato member of a so-called ally of the us a that the usa couldn't take that role anymore because it could no longer be an honest broker because they deemed it is no longer honest and it's no longer impartial when it comes to the situation between israel and palestine and president do. even for that deciding and declaring that he thought
11:04 am
that israel was a terrorist state. so one look at the. trim back in this country this israel's occupation and. is that where you're defending. come back charlotte but i don't think you can hear us in the long we've lost the sound she would see him as going to hear anything sorry about that for now. in jerusalem ok well that was the political fallout from the arab side of it but of course promoting peace that was the declared purpose when donald trump recognized jerusalem as the capital of israel far from it so far there's been nonstop violence across the region after he said what he said.
11:05 am
one of the forces leading the protest movement is the palestinian organization hamas it's a calling now for a third so called into father full of active unrest against what the palestinians call the israeli occupation of their territory. firstly how massa's called on the palestinian people to face the israeli occupation
11:06 am
and adopt the blessid into father against that and the hateful and racist recognition of jerusalem and to america reverses its decision the palestinian people who are involved in a continuous battle and into fodder against the israeli occupation and we are calling for it to be escalated in the west bank occupied jerusalem and the guards are strictly against the occupation until america drops its recognition of jerusalem. out of the american president didn't know what would come of his racist and hateful decision he didn't expect this anger to sweep across the arab islamic and palestinian streets. people who are still under israeli siege they want to continue the into fathering against israeli occupation and the american administration as a partner who has to take responsibility for this escalation and the consequences caused by this american decision on jerusalem. let's get a view from jerusalem from the jerusalem center for public affairs thanks ever so
11:07 am
much for your time today i guess maybe this table was to be expected maybe no surprises there i don't know what you think about it. all these arab leaders have got together they've declared they want east jerusalem to be recognized as the palestinian capital is there any chance at all that israel would agree to that if the western parts recognize as the israeli capital internationally or is that far too simplistic a thought. well first of all one notable thing here about the oh i see meeting in turkey is that the egyptian leader l.c.c. and king solomon of saudi arabia weren't there so they fundamentally disagree with this fracturing in the arab world where you have the anti american alliance led by the neo ottoman muslim brotherhood radical leader. as well as qatar and on the other hand you have the more moderate states the more amenable to the united states countries in the middle east such as egypt such as jordan and such as saudi arabia
11:08 am
the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas has chosen at this point to grab the hand of the radical anti peace and to drop the hand of the pro peace united states that's given more money to the palestinian authority than any other is going to. come and trump statement. what he would like to see happening in in israel and the israeli capital may be about just feels to into a corner. well i do agree with you abbas does abbas actually backed himself into a corner kevin tell you why because he's been paid he's been paying the terrorists he's been calling for boycott divestment and sanctions against israel as a country he calls israel a terror country so he doesn't really want to negotiate peace with the jewish state the nation state of the jewish people he basically wants to compete against hamas in his own areas who at hamas has become much more popular mr abbas i just sat with
11:09 am
three palestinian notables just a few hours ago in jerusalem and they said the hatred for mr abbas is so great on the palestinian street because of the corruption and the mishandling of the palestinian authority that people in the palestinian areas in the west bank and even in gaza the public wants to be connected to israel the public wants to work with israel mr abbas politically it is in a terrible position so his best option is to go the extremist route but this political suicide is not going to tell if you look what it was it's not going to create a palestinian state the side for a second it was interesting we carried some of this live news conference at the end of the. oh i see meeting and there was a lot made of these graphics the of how this whole place is changed in this one hundred forty seven through the sixty's up to now and how israeli influence to put it the best way i can grow how much how much the settlements have expanded eccentrics cetera and when you look at those mumps it does graphically kind of
11:10 am
highlight why what the palestinians are upset. well in fact the palestinians are not upset with israel and we've the palestinians are upset with the palestinian leadership in fact you know if you we could spend all night going to history those maps as many maps are or are particularly misleading we're talking about two sides coming together at a table of negotiations in peace and goodwill and that's what israel has offered to do what mr trump did it should be no noted is to fulfill the democratic will of the american people who for twenty two years have been calling to push to put the american embassy in israel's capital jerusalem that capital jerusalem is recognized by all israelis it's recognized by and has been recognized by the american people so all mr trump did without prejudicing negotiation could you know what i'll stay even to help negotiate it so many of them said but nobody else is street strong and
11:11 am
yourselves but that's it well the you know the europeans the europeans have been they said no and they stand together and they won't recognize they stood in the way well then what then tell me this why is it that the european powers have said that they want that they would like to see a palestinian capital in east jerusalem which is a total prejudgment of negotiations i mean that that is a that's what they said in the past and that's that is extremely problematic all mr trump did was recognize israel was recognized jerusalem as the capital of israel and out prejudicing negotiations between the sides we've got to leave it there you know it's a hotly contested on both sides and straining is what feelings run really high on this we appreciate your time down for telling us what you think done so i can from the jerusalem center for public affairs have a good night thank you which comes decision's been heavily criticized by european and arab officials as we've been saying but that doesn't seem to trouble the u.s. leader himself is cullum open explains. well it's now the time of year in which
11:12 am
israel celebrates hanukkah and this comes after donald trump's dramatic decision on jerusalem which may seem like a huge gift we wish you a very happy hanukkah. and i think this one will go down as especially special. right now i'm thinking about what's going on and the love that's all over is you know. all about jerusalem love that's all over israel trump one is far is actually praising himself for the all but controversial move his point his predecessors only made promises where he actually delivered. jerusalem is still the capital of israel and most remain unknown divided city accessible questions that take us as i would begin the process of moving the united states ambassador to the city israel has chosen as i continued to say that. jerusalem will be the capital of israel so why is time so gleeful
11:13 am
about his decision as the international community praised him for it nope very dangerous decision we do know and agree he clearly disagree these decisions are helpful from the european union member states sites this move will not come so is it what the american people want well not according to this poll taken ahead of trump's decision sixty three percent of americans say that they oppose the move but it's popular in israel right well not with all israelis they think of all my friends leaving the euro zone and they. are in much greater risk than they were with i think it will because of. people day and. violence i think it was a reckless this season and it takes less time to announce it is like a man who was playing in a coma defeated or in the. in gangsta. so it's taking us three
11:14 am
still suddenly and is shooting over friends tell me the day he announced that they're pretty much scared to go but the drizzle in the can be done though how it's going to be underscored to leave the house says but trump did win over some of his harsh critics in the democratic camp. jerusalem is the capital of the state of israel something the united states congress has reaffirmed and a fact of history that cannot be tonight. i support the decision to recognize jerusalem as the eternal capital of israel and to move the u.s. embassy that this decision is long overdue and help correct a decades long indignity there may be benefits for him personally may be tipping his hat to his base and saying you know this is a campaign promise that i made he sees it more important for his personal legacy for his supporters to do this regardless of its effect on world opinion regardless of its effect on the united states and world opinion and regardless of its effect
11:15 am
on the palestinian. people the world is not happy with the move america is not happy with the move but donald trump thinks it's terrific a year ago at his inauguration donald trump said that from here forward it would be america first well it's starting to look like maybe it's trump first. r.t. new york. state's open the door now for face to face talks with north korea in a hopeful gesture to yank rex tillerson said washington would be ready to meet without any preconditions we're ready to talk anytime north korea would like to talk. and we're ready to have the first meeting without precondition let's just make. unless we talk about the weather if you will talk about whether it's going to be a square table or around tobruk that's what you're shouting about. but can we at least sit down and see each other face to face that olive branch then from
11:16 am
rex tillerson could mark a significant shift in u.s. policy on north korea which previously demanded pyongyang give up on its nuclear program before negotiations could begin their not going to negotiate our way to the negotiating table d p r k knows what they need to deal in order to get the united states to work with them and they know that has to be dealing with me or station the secretary said he's not going to negotiate his way back to the negotiating table manners or course at the end of november north korea tested this most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile of the day the launch triggered global condemnation and then a warning from the trumpet ministration that the country would be utterly destroyed end quote if it triggered a war then this week the north korean leader again raised the stakes vying to make his country the world's strongest nuclear power earlier spoke to asia security expert chris ogden he told me it's difficult to work out who's holding the playbook
11:17 am
right now when it comes to u.s. foreign policy the focus is still very high in terms of an imminent conflict and i think the major thing that's happened is that unless and some leaders of science understand that the north koreans will not give up their nuclear weapons. how does the change from being the start important negotiations and i think to listen to comments and terms of let's just talk about anything including the weather even though that sounds quite frivolous it's actually quite positive that at least the leaders could sit down formally face to face does this president trump and rex tillerson see here we hear that rex to this is kind of one of the top all along president trump the signal the time for talks over and they still say nothing's changed that was actually going on as far as the american side. you know who's holding the cards here this is the major question about u.s. foreign policy of the moment in terms of here it is the seven things and this is the biggest issue rarely play in the north korean crisis which is where the consistency we truly see what trungpa say will actually be replicated
11:18 am
into action and we've seen this consistently between trump and solicit and signs of what will actually happen i think if they do meet then we can say for me that that's an event but until that comes about it's still really rhetoric to some degree but hopeful rhetoric thanks for watching out international today a lot more ahead have you to stay with me for at least the next twenty minutes or so and international organizations accusing e.u. countries of condoning the detention and abuse of migrants trying to reach it sure will tell you all about that and the rest of used to just eighty seconds. to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to present. something i want to. let you go right to the pros this is what the three of them will be good. interested always in the water.
11:19 am
here's what people have been saying about redacted in the sixty's full on. the only show i go out of my way to watch you know what it is that really packs a punch oh yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than to see people you've never heard of love are down for the night president of the world bank very. seriously send us an email.
11:20 am
i can honestly internationals accusing a government of condoning the detention and abuse of migrants trying to reach europe from libya we believe they are knowingly complexity. abuse and torture refugees and my friend said. because they know exactly what is going on and they have chosen to support. a system of detention and that. of migrants without. in place any safeguards groups published a report titled libya's dark web of collusion it focuses on the detention abuse of people trying to reach europe a correspondent akira next explains the details of misty's claims here. last year member states launched a series of measures aimed at cutting off the central mediterranean route through libya but to report by amnesty international says that these steps are in fact actively supporting a system of exploitation and abuse of the vulnerable people they should be helping
11:21 am
and they have video evidence to back their claims to these are rescue boats that even countries supplied to the libyan coast guard to intercept migrants at sea honesty says that this is the moment someone that had been rescued was thrown overboard and towed along the sea while here we see someone else being whipped. thank you it was she was sick of my i was my. this particular boat was donated by italy i can april it was handed over to the libyan coast guard in a ceremony attended by the italian interior minister who'd have thought it would
11:22 am
one day be the focal point of accusations of human rights violations and then there is the detention center after being rescued at sea migrants were taken to these facilities run by the libyan department for combat saying illegal migration with the full support of e.u. countries in the words of amnesty is heavier than they are exposed to a soul destroying cycle of exploitation and it's a cause for what reason thought uprising to all our present is also a business in libya to kill some people this or some people would be some poor dear departed chicago. fortune it's. the use going to be tossed out finished it's going to be tossed before so as to snoop it was such a water to drink for limited to us and. a level of abuse is. horrific. these people leaving feel. there is no
11:23 am
use or food that provided that unless you can pay for it would be reviewed several people who. decided that the way to make the wider families were on the phone in order to extort the money for the torture to stop and for them to be released that . and this is just the ordinary daily life in the sand. the rights group wants european gun. ments to rethink that cooperation with libya when it comes to migration and says that if they continue to support libyan authorities european governments are laying bare what their true priority is putting the closure of the central mediterranean route for the welfare of the little people meanwhile are appalled by the european commission on the blocks programs in libya has stressed the need to shut down smuggling and human trafficking in the country it went on to say that the e.u.'s efforts have a quote strongly human rights component and quote we are several institutions to comment on the allegations against you governments including the italian foreign
11:24 am
ministry couple replies we got first when we heard from the un secretary general's deputy spokesman expressed concern over the situation in libya and stressed the need for the proper resettlement of migrants we also heard back from oxfam to uk terms of the couldn't comment on the report itself but this their own information seem to suggest and support that honesty's findings were right some added that the e.u. has sacrificed people's safety and well being in order to stop a regular migration at any cost most of you shared to buy international relations professor. because you're getting a number of reports from credible sources including u.n. agencies that there are a systematic abuses there that is and and i think it's clear that there are italy has to do and the european union has to say well we're not going to send these people back to libya and we're going to find some way to give them a cease haven whether they're whether or not there are economic migrants already
11:25 am
cities isn't is not right the country is in major powers. the stable a situation and then later on complained. there are mass migration movements from some war another difficulty is. first official presentation of the twenty eight hundred fifty four world cups taken place of the russian embassy in london that event attracted some high profile guesses it expect with the football stars from around the world and officials discussing the competition forthcoming the first ever to be held in russia of which russia is very proud we spoke to some of those in attendance about their expectations for this show all peace to win this is part of the things you know that i must as well and this world cup is that i don't believe that people will watch it again. wasn't the fans of the people we looped around the country who in their individual countries so i think that they understand how the world is in and i'm sure they didn't make it big enough now is
11:26 am
that we saw it once the only it is though probably. you could never say that shortage like eliminate you would have problems now to try to walk up and sure of your fabulous world cup not a long time to prepare them should be a spectacle and i think by most neutrals. because my nation is not there scotland would like all mission to well i think it's important for the competition the russia go a long way maybe even the semifinals we hope that it will be a very positive toward it i'm sure it will be we are very positive spirit and i think that goes a long way off in a sporting event such as a world cup or a new games gives the country the opportunities and really show itself in its quest to the world and are very much hope and i believe that russia will do that. positive note i'll leave it for there is twenty six to twenty seven it's past seven in the evening unions here throughout the evening i'm kevin owen saying thanks for watching and hope to catch again same times tomorrow.
