well there are these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. north korea and the u.s. are said to regime stalled nuclear talks in sweden with both sides testing ballistic weapons in the days leading up to the meeting. president declares a state of emergency as the country's gripped by nationwide protests over soaring fuel prices. and the leader attempts to end the turmoil triggered by his dissolution of parliament we speak to jailed former brazilian president lula da silva about the crisis and how it feeds into broader regional trends. i think rudy is see the same thing happened to south american countries we keep seeing. that.
live from moscow this is alethea international money welcome to the program 1st for you north korean negotiators have arrived in sweden to resume nuclear talks with the united states but it comes just a few days after pm yang said it had successfully tested a d.c. launched missile in a move that's caused alarm in western capitals the secretary had a call with japanese minister of defense where they discussed north korea they both agree that the north korea tests are unnecessarily provocative and do not set the stage for diplomacy in that north korea should cease these tests north korea says its missile is capable of being launched from a submarine which would represent a major advancement of its weapons capabilities some analysts are calling it the most significant test since the country entered into dialogue with washington in 2018 just a few hours later the u.s. carried out its own launch and fired an intercontinental ballistic missile over the pacific saying the test was for national security purposes takes
a closer look at the claim. north korea and the united states are headed back to the negotiating table this weekend says president trump we'll see they want to talk and we'll be talking to him who will say so we can all just relax and anticipate one step closer to world peace right well no a missile was launched on wednesday the u.s. state department burned with outrage we call on north korea to refrain from provocations abide by their obligations under un security council resolutions and remain in gauged in substantive and sustained negotiations to do their part to ensure peace and stability on the korean peninsula and as you do nuclear is ation now to prove their point about peace and stability the united states launched an intercontinental ballistic missile from the coast of california on the exact same day but they say it is not a provocative move according to the pentagon brass it's all about peace and security this visible message of national security. and to sway potential
aggressor so let's recap shall we this is the puck some 3 it's endangering the stability and peace of the entire region and this is the minuteman 3 i.c.b.m. it's just making the world a safer and happier place in august the united states once again conducted military drills in south korea rehearsing for an all out war against the north but they say it's nothing provocative about it simply a measure of security north korea didn't see it that way into korean contacts will be difficult unless the put an end to military exercise will give a plausible explanation in a sincere manner that is worth mentioning these drills were scaled down a bit compared to the ones done in the past we are working very hard to make sure that it is not perceived as provocative to go as far as to modify even the name of the exercise and to modify the scenario to take out all the offensive characteristics it's all about perception if we do it it's understandable for
security purposes think of the i.c.c. . b.m. is a jolly little kite bringing joy but if they do it it's a provocation putting the entire region into danger yes it's one sided attitudes like that that are sure to bring peace on earth they fired off an i.c.b.m. missile. you know like 4200 miles to the marshall islands this wasn't a small underground or underwater test so the u.s. is. wants to be able to behave one way as a military might with its military might around the world and the other countries do the opposite and so unfortunately we are left with these types of instances where very few people question the power military of the united states very few people question why the united states is testing the nuclear deterrent if you will . acquittals president has declared a national emergency following
a wave of protests over the authorities decision to end feel subsidies the move which came into effect on thursday is expected to cause the price of petrol and diesel to double workers in the transport sector launched a national strike and response with taxi bus and truck drivers blocking roads in major cities students and indigenous people so join the protests hoping to paralyze the programs transport networks in the capital demonstrators clashed with riot police who fired tear gas and made hundreds of arrests despite the term president let him right now has said that there's no chance that this 14 year old subsidies will be reinstated. that there is no possibility of changing those things related to the perverse subsidies as they were causing so much harm to the countries they were distorting the economy but above all else allow for important national resources to fall into the wrong. to try to ensure the safety of our citizens and avoid chaos i have declared a national state of emergency in the ecuadorian government scrapped the fuel so.
cities in order to be targets agreed to the international monetary fund as part of a bailout deal signed in march i could also agree to slash public spending and now intends to reduce its deficit from 3.6 $1000000000.00 to under $1000000000.00 by 2020 economist gonzalo told me that economic restructuring will be a painful process for the country then the i.m.f. is given a credit to our country is under certain conditions on the. day they control the economy and they're going to go down to the so the goal of i.m.f. what they are really following this trade to open the economy of whether just to make the. ecuadorian people in the future but not get access to a different kind of private services that. they don't have it at the moment but the thing is what is the cost of this kind of rest the direction of the economy and either my government is joining in this door and open the markets we've basically is the main advice that i am of the given we're going to give to you laws we're
going to give you credit but only under certain conditions then they're doing that we know they're going to see inflation we know they're going to increase unemployment rate at the moment but in theory yes in theory very well that of the future going to be an economy similar like the u.s. economy or mexican economy let's say but obviously with a high like i say we because of the region that's going to be there because he's basically the other and all the economies got it right now. more turmoil in latin america in peru the president appointed a new cabinet well prepared to govern without opposition until elections is coming january it comes after martin puts karo took the dramatic step of dissolving parliament earlier in the week in order to break the impasse over his anticorruption drive. yes. that's. how all the president's opponents have described the move was unconstitutional there's been a groundswell of popular support for across the country since 2016 many leading
officials including most of the country's living former presidents have been implicated in corruption leading to a spate of convictions and frustration and i've heard it. made the president is in those easy job to stress pressure of responsibility for the entire country but being president of peru also adds to the time to the list almost like it's just this is miss said this and i will say the former vice president she declared herself head of the country on monday is playing in the i am temporarily assuming the presidency of the republic at least in response to the fact the president is carra has failed but just hours after being sworn in she resigns i have decided to resign from the position of constitutional vice president of the republic the reasons are explaining the attached ladder i hope that my resignation will lead to the convening and general elections in the surest term of the country. that's all
for the current president didn't discover dissolved congress which plunged the country into political crises massive protests and kudos for his resignation probably not his best week interesting week this got himself elected he took over from federal public good shinseki resigned over corruption charges just out of a comfortable bed in the government palace with a view. a brick through a bunk in a cell for 3 years and it was we want to denounce in the name of our family the injustice that has been committed against all father federal public option scheme has been given 3 years of preventive imprisonment. history desist or young the mother was also arrested on allegations of money laundering he is watching his property and freedom being taken away before there was a long garcia it won't come as
a surprise that he too was arrested on the same money laundering charges the only reason he escaped prison time is because he committed suicide before. i handwrote also in jail this time in the us has been the full humoring guess where he is in jail to 2031. we were joking them he said being who is presidency. perhaps most said this and i was made a wise decision resigning so quickly it's a saying that in jail. some analysts have drawn parallels between the crisis in peru and the situation in venezuela the opposition there also rejected the dissolution of parliament and appointed interim president however unlike venezuela the u.s. embassy in peru chose to remain somewhat neutral political analysts we spoke to says that despite the similarities in the situations between peru and venezuela they're treated very differently by washington. if we compare bin is clearly and we
compare peru indeed i mean in this occasion the united states had decided to step back and see what will happen what is going to be. a role of the united states if they would be like doing exactly the same as they have done before you know you would have expected or as we say they would support if they would be more like you know inclined to do the same things and to be more coherent in their in their political stances the united states has played like a kind of a double a rule that's not very clear right you apply some criteria in the case of some countries have the different set of criteria to the situation or crisis in another country which that shows probably a double more all while some of the other reaction we've been hearing to the peruvian crisis artie's spanish channel has spoken to jailed former brazilian president lula da silva he was the president to brazil from 2003 to 2010 but then
served as the head of presidential staff in the administration of his successor in 2017 who was convicted of money laundering and corruption and sentenced to 12 years in prison really believes there are similarities between events in peru and other latin american countries. you know i think peru is seeing the same thing that has happened to other south american countries we keep seeing new ways of staging a coup. a keyboard fear no one has to accept foreign interference in the affairs of a sovereign state i do not support american brazilian colombian or any other interference their attempts to control another country by promoting their own candidates by creating a fake figurehead like one guy joe i'm totally against this there are situations
that a democratic country has to deal with on its own. you brazil is a very big country it can be fully sovereign and it could become one of the main actors on international policy i admire the role that president putin plays in the modern world it shows that the world cannot be held hostage to u.s. policy to trump's craziness the craziness of a u.s. president who believes that he can invade any country kill any president somebody has to stop him and brazil conclude that. this is our taste deadly violence and curfews and every have a plummeting living standards and corruption we'll update you on that on a comeback.
join me every thursday on the alex simon chill and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. you know world of big partisan movies a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bats and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. who will never situation leave grandchildren or little children ask their great
grandparents. is it true that all these cars used to have people driving in the great grand. that's what we used to. get the british army's calls defense among members of one of the minority groups it was trying to attract it tweeted the black history month is now being expanded to include asian people to ask you to take up the story. there are some battles you can't when just ask the british army no i'm not talking about iraq or afghanistan even the 1st war i'm talking about the fight to win over the hearts and minds of and every citizen of us old blighty black history month has kicked off in the u.k. this week in the british army to tell if its finger on the pulse has dedicated the next 30 days not just to black people but to all the asians who have served in its
ranks still haven't got over that guilt that we missed a trick here we didn't explain that black history month has expanded to include the history of asian people and their contribution to hence our recognition of our historic partnership with the indian army but in the minefield of political hypersensitivity the initiative might just be a flop it's been slammed by the very communities it was supposed to ingratiate herself with and less these asians a black i don't want to see it to be honest there are 12 months in a year black history month took up one month of the 12 but they wanted to be black asian and minority ethnic mums w.t.f. pick another months and make that asian history month i'm sure a lot of asians will appreciate it come on don't be stupid it's bloody black history month why is that you can criticize the army for its lack of manners for
the move very thought point for the british so thank goodness for the good old delete button because the tweet in question was removed not before had fired up the haters of course and even the odd lonely voice of support the contribution of sikh hindu and muslim communities can't be ignored if they consider themselves politically black than they are i can't even pretend to know what politically it is but i can tell you what black history month is initiated violence across the park. the us decided to give our lunch every year you know to repent for all those centuries of slavery and segregation and it's part of a growing trend of affirmative action that might just be backfiring take while sameness harvard university for example turns out it's got racial quotas to ensure a dive us community something that didn't go down too well with a group of asian americans who filed a lawsuit saying they would be penalized in favor of their fellow black applicants
despite having far better entrance schools and indeed multiple studies have shown that if the university based its admissions process just on academic factors what a bizarre notion asians make up over 40 percent of harvard's classes that's more than twice its current figures. the course conclusion the harvard has shown that its admissions program serves its compelling interest in diversity but assume racial categorizations are necessary to serve those interests and while the court might have backed hard at this time it's opened a can of worms an increasingly divisive issue affirmative action lifeline that its heyday is over so there's a huge amount of marketing executives only sort of social media advisers you know in places like the british army if you're completely detached from reality. and it sort of started to use all these social awareness campaigns things like work history month just for marketing and this entire social awareness kind of you know
progressive stuff should probably let you are actually experiencing racism probably lets you look older people who are actually out there on the streets variance in these things rather than you know. who are sort of defining and sort of deciding they're what they're i think that by providing a lower standard for a certain race of people in a higher standard for a different race of people certainly 1st of all creates a lot of conflict between different races of people that would not have existed otherwise but i think it also demotivates. certain people you know who probably would have been more motivated to go out and do so based off of their hard work an absolute which now they're not being rewarded for and i think that it provides unfair advantages soon we're going to run out of months and seeing any action one takes to place one minority waggle faith and not that you've got to admit it's tough out there on the front line of political correctness. play from
hong kong now where a special ban on face masks has been announced the emergency measure will come into effect on saturday in a bid by the authorities to contain more than 4 months of unrest protesters have frequently cover their faces while taking part in demonstrations there against the government in beijing and officials say this makes violence escalate because people are less afraid of being called. this emergency law comes after clashes turn particularly ugly turn 70th anniversary celebrations all coming as a possible china. russia is helping china build a warning system for missile attacks there was revealed by president putin at the annual international affairs conference the valdai discussion club that currently underway in russia. from a game that we are now hoping all chinese partners to develop a missile attack warning system is a very serious thing that will read the clean hands china's defense capabilities because at the moment only the united states and russia have such a system
a political scientist joseph chang in hong kong outlined to me the ways in which he believes thing arrangement will benefit both china and russia. both sides understand it is a lot of company even territory into 2 countries in weapons development china probably has more research money it can support research and development programs and russia certainly enjoys considerable cannot it go beyond digits you know all of that technological superiority and abundance is on the part of russia it is in a position to make offers to countries that and china and cooperation with china may get. maybe used as a kind of model that the united states will certainly be very unhappy about this but it is say limited to what it can do after all the united states is so has the united gaging joint but it is development worth countries like egypt and
india and so on. iraq has seen more deadly unrest as popular protests against corruption and lower living standards continue for a 4th consecutive day security forces opened fire on demonstrators in baghdad on friday bringing the number of those killed in this week's turmoil to 44 the violence comes despite calls for calm from the prime minister i'm sure and says the protesters grievances were being listened to. clashes 1st erupted on tuesday when the army stepped in to defend the heavily fortified green zone in baghdad where government offices and foreign country that's
located police deployed to gas rubber bullets and live fire against protesters internet access has since been cut to most of the country and curfews imposed iraqi peace campaign a summary ramadani thinks the country's problems are deeply ingrained in some and. sadly i don't think the country is going to overcome these enormous problems caused by the invasion and occupation of iraq the us that invasion occupation of 2003. because the problems have become so deep the destruction was so well massive and the political elites that the u.s. installed in iraq where almost all very corrupt and this has added to the problem of trying to recover from that destructive occupation that is the problem with the with iraq that the problems are so deep and there are so many
corrupt senior politicians it's very difficult to implement a lot of the demands of the people things like eliminating corruption getting rid of massive unemployment among young people housing problems poverty problems. you can add to our home for more video news and reaction i'll be back here with your next update after we've learned what it's like to work in the world's largest and oldest radio. make or break the entire proposition financialization new because without a basic science of value risk and to value time you have no basis to value this financial eyes post industrial economy whatsoever it's all basically a guessing game. in 24 to you know
bloody revolution to correct the demonstrations going to be relatively peaceful political protests to be creasing the violent revolution is always spontaneous or is it just the lawyer who put him in your list put video through in the new bill is that i new school in need of the former ukrainian president recalls the events of 2040. of those who took boat i've invested over $5000000000.00 to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic. vanity and by north it's so many people because they copied him he's so good that even such a bad puppy sending. i'm not hill to me would be
