i understand that. for the morning the 1st of july in the headlines the medics and scientists feel lives are at risk around the world after the u.s. scooped up the entire global supply of an antiviral drug for treating co with 90. venezuelan the told he can't get his hands on the country's $1000000000.00 gold reserves stored in the bank of england the british high court says it's because the u.k. recognizes his rival. the story of the ancient turkish monument for centuries a place of worship now a world heritage museum but the turkish president's in the firing line for wanting to turn it back into a mosque. i
am in no good morning for russia for me and the team of artes world to censor today i'm kevin now in this hour's update so 1st there's mention the e.u. is in talks with an american pharmaceutical giant about securing enough doses of an antiviral drug this license to treat covert 19 the u.s. government earlier swooped in and bought up the entire global supply of rendez severe stockpiling 3 months worth leaving nothing left for anyone else it's worldwide anger and alarm for leaving countries vulnerable endangering lives or do bensky explains. even you and other countries across the world have been left scrambling in the wake of this announcement that the u.s. essentially brought up the entire world supply of this key antiviral drug in the fight against code that 19 it means that they won't be able to get their hands on it because the u.s. government has even brought up stocks that haven't yet to be manufactured that's
how far ahead the u.s. has to buy this particular drug the questions are being raised as to what will other countries do in the meantime particularly if the u.s. keeps using its might and its money to be able to buy stocks of p. drugs like this president trump has struck an amazing deal to ensure americans have access to the 1st authorized therapeutic for college 19 to the extent possible one to ensure that any american patient who needs from this severe can get it well the e.u. is do you realize we know that some governments like the u.k. government the german government say they've gotten nothing reserves of this drug for the next few months but the problem is does the u.s. keep using its money to buy these drugs and if so what other countries do some are saying that this action by the u.s. puts clinical supplies across the world at risk they say that it is an unfair move by the u.s. and will have a massive impact on those countries that really need to get hold of this drug we
want to cooperate because the best come from the whole world is that we work together by attempting to compete i think we alternately undermine all of our strategies. i have never seen anything like that but a company chooses to sell their stock to only one country it's very strange and quite inappropriate right now we have enough to make it through the summer if the intake of patients is as it is now if the 2nd wave comes we may be challenged of course it's not the 1st time that the us is pulled a stunt like this put america 1st which of course is one of trump's slogans at the beginning of the curve in 1000 pandemic there was a huge fear at the description of the us hijacking facemasks basically having facemasks that we needed to be delivered to one country have been rerouted to the us supplies that and then move recently there was the for 0 after it emerged that
the us thought that it was going to have 1st dibs on any big 19 vaccine that was created in the feature that was going to be from a french pharmaceutical company the french government was furious about mad and stepped in since then sanofi that company has backed down and said that there will be equal access to all the world health organization is also being expressing its concerns about this move by the us which is apparently poor around 500000 doses that's half a 1000000 doses it will clarify these with us so that we have a distorted global market. speaks really to the need for some principles of equity and of for global solidarity if we're to to solve this collective problem because as long as a virus is circulating on one continent or in one country that has also just this decision she would buy up this antiviral drug is likely to play well into the hands
of trump supporters and possibly even appease some of his critics who also said that donald trump hasn't dealt with the situation well that he has not managed to 99. demick what we do know though is given that we are just months away from a presidential election in november it every vote right now counts and that is exactly what donald trump may be hoping for with this announce. us around the world smalling the venezuelan government's been stopped from getting access to its $1000000000.00 gold reserve stored at the bank of england britain's high court ruled in on thursday that the u.k. like several other nations recognizes president duros long term rival one who i don't know as venezuela's interim leader so for now the gold is set to stay in the bank of england's vaults until there are official links with the rival administration here's why they're going over the 1000000000 dollar bully in the president maduro says it's urgently needed to fund but as well as efforts on going
to tackle coronavirus infections and to pay for urgently needed food and medical supplies why don't the suspects it's only to proper government the string of legal battles between the move all those around $5000000000.00 in frozen government accounts abroad and why does the administration know hopes that the british court's decision will prompt other countries to hand him control of that money a lawyer representing nicolas maduro says they are going to appeal. if randi this is just a decision by the united states. to have a vision change means that a i'm question. actually has or any country has a right to interfere in the start of this summer an interest on a country that is already country going to be but i sincerely hope that it will be a solution because linda did have practical if the goal of this sort and in my stead it was easier to go to it was the guy there is no evidence of god no the
buner to teach all of us any to go and feed all people and providing medical equipment there as you know even worse owing trouble and that meant going by this and that it ported history briefly quite the proclaimed himself and as well as interim president in january last year since then venezuela has been shaken by muscle political and economic upheaval and into a barrage of sanctions imposed by the u.s. on the duros government in the months since several 1000000 front as well as that fled the country economics professor jack russell a suspects the united states hand in britain's push against madeira now this is just the latest of that whole effort by the u.s. to squeeze one as well as the u.k. needs the u.s. if it's leaving. you know the european union it needs a trade deal with the u.s. and it doesn't want to aggravate the u.s. in trump by green to allow venezuela to have its own gold financial
imperialism that the u.s. exercises not just controlling currency and the dollar which is the global currency but the international payment system which the u.s. uses to see who is violating its sanctions and of course sanctions now more than ever these are just the tools of u.s. global economic a germany. israel's who spoke and it's plan an exaggeration of parts of the west bank it was proposed last year by prime minister binyamin netanyahu and bush didn't journey with him by donald trump's peace plan which recognize the jewish settlements as israeli territory infuriating the palestinians and drawing warnings from abroad but the target date of july the 1st has passed without any announcement of what's planned is our middle east correspondent paula sleep in. this is donald trump square in israel named after one of the biggest fans of benjamin netanyahu swiss bank and excess lands it's also a landmark for demonstrations just a few days ago
a group of vandals spalt with paint in its water creating the image of blood and painted the words an extension will cost lives on the ground however the chorus of those against an extension is widening with you are declaring it as a beagle. an exception would put in jeopardy the progress that israel has made in improving relationships with the arab and muslim world i profoundly hope that annexation does not go ahead. it was not just about the legal assessment of the next ation that we believe is contrary to international law we still sticks a negotiating the 2 state solution we would checks unilateral border ships and we will not recognize them either. let's not pretend we do not know their plans we are doing everything possible so that this does not happen diplomatically they are joined by thousands of protesters around the world to crying the annexation.
with. humanitarian organizations are also warning of dire consequences if you implement this eric sation course the 2 most serious violation of international law. gives us we harm the prospect of a 2 state solution and that got the possibilities of a new negotiations go on the israeli government. it's an exception class going against the worldwide condemnation tel aviv decided to simply ride out the storm by delaying the annexation. book or anything and related to the battle against the coronavirus we'll wait for the days after the virus but behind the scene israel continues to map out the land grab it with its closest ally you have
been the greatest friend that israel as ever had in the white house with so time is ticking for both israel and its perilous to friends in the white house watching faces mounting pressure and post. this of his own ahead of the november elections parts of palestine and europe will watch on as rival candidate joe biden who is per israel has spoken out against and it's a shame for now the west bank holds its breath. r.t. head to take their. reporting next the future of an ancient monument in turkey is at the center of a political rally over the president's desire to turn it into a mosque either saffir in istanbul has been a museum for almost a century before that it was an orthodox christian cathedral and a mosque for several centuries too it's an imposing unesco world heritage site and a draw for thousands of tourists.
well decisions on hold for now but turkey's main administrative body is expected to decide on the building status in 15 days is the latest you know says it's illegal to change a cultural heritage monument status without their permission and given that it's been a christian and muslim place of worship over the centuries one eastern orthodox church leader is warning that the move could turn millions of christians against islam and they're not the only ones concerned either. the united states' future changing the status of the ideas of fear is diminishing the legacy of this remarkable building and its unsurpassed ability to serve humanity as
a much needed bridge between those of differing faith traditions and cultures. the highest the fear must not be allowed to be devastated with universal character and turned into a muslim place of worship where the turkish government and president do on are attempting to do today revives and reignites fanatical nationalist and religious sentiment a symbol of tolerance and diversity this place must remain open to all but the turkish leadership is not happy at being told what to do insisting it's got the right to make decisions about its own buildings the presidential spokesman for the said that turning the museum into a mosque would not damage its cultural meaning and would still welcome visitors we got some reaction from people in turkey what they thought about it them. as far as i'm concerned it's best for it to stay in museum because there is a blue mosque 100 meters across the way it's best for him to see the museum i hope that it will be open soon and on myself will allow us to pray here as soon as
possible but frankly i see it is a necessary tourism revenues are already all over the place because of covert tens of thousands of people come here every month to worship and by doing something like this creating an artificial agenda there's nothing logical there's no right to me. trying to revive the ottoman empire. we can see that it was all the movements that he's making and within this framework good he would like to see also a gradual way yourself yet. to go before he at the door. and this way he thinks that he will support a question over yourself. is not an issue. between agree government and church because. it's something that belongs to your manatee many jerks also into a key believe it that it should remain a world heritage and also as such as a museum it gives
a lot so her financial support to their mayor over of a stumble jim out in saying that we don't need another mosque he said that we should that we should leave it as it is and we still do to be or close to it but it will go on he's adamant he wants to break with my list by asking for his own benefit. of the morning moscow time either this is out international with me kevin owen coming up and donald trump may want u.s. troops out of afghanistan but he's got a battle with congress on his hands over the armed forces panel moved to keep soldiers there partly of a claims to the rushes of paying to militants to kill american troops as long going spots will get across it when we're back.
the initial wave of coronavirus may be leveling just about but it is clear that some countries are not out of the woods yet in the united states which is the worst affected country there's been an acceleration of cases in 40 out of the 50 states fairly cases in texas alone of troubled over the past fortnight and now the state's rolling back its reopening program ordering all bars to close and reducing restaurant capacity bar owners a furious though it seemingly being singled out they're filing a lawsuit against the governor.
too many people are starving too many people are ready to just put a bullet in their head because their their livelihoods are dying their businesses they worked hard for over their kids at home or they don't have anybody else our families matter just far lives matter. you know for vacations we need to be healthy it is we're close to protect the public good and we need the public to come help us we need government aid we were the 1st business is to close the pier going to be the last businesses to reopen. i'm at the end of the day i don't think the closures are really going to college at all especially given the fact that golf courses are still open restaurants are
still of the night. you know so crazy uncertain times on they will the world health organization now warning that some nations may have to reinstate lockdowns a spokesperson for the agency talked to us about the balance of trying to get on with the lives on one side versus staying healthy all the other. but intense outbreaks going on in in most continents of the world in the united states in latin america we've got a number of countries tracing enormous outbreaks but we've also the very loud outbreaks in india in pakistan and also in africa or in south africa so all around the world we are every continent is faced with a large amount of virus and a very large threat i think there's sometimes people thinking. that that side of the health of the economy the 2 go hand in hand you know if you're not healthy if you're sick you're can't own you can't work so you've lost your financial means on
the on that if you don't have a job you may become ill through lack of activity lack of money so we've got to do the 2 together but the key word is be safe we know what stops is the social distancing the hand-washing the ensuring nothing at your mouth nose our eyes these things work these things have worked in other countries. run into a hurdle to bring american troops apart from afghanistan next to the congress armed services committee has put a block on the withdrawal saying it will limit the united states' ability to maintain security in that region. this is about american leadership we prevent terrorism we prevent a civil war in afghanistan and we also send a clear message of keeping our commitments this is an amendment is just basically it's an attempt to tie our hands and limit our united states' ability to respond to
threats around the world we clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in afghanistan so the amendment targets the trumpet ministrations almost final decision as it was put to withdraw more than 4000 troops from afghanistan by this autumn according to administration officials the move would reduce the number of troops to the lowest number since the very beginning of the war back in 2001 in afghanistan but any american exit a coast depends on us tell about peace process ongoing to. who's been sworn in former pentagon security and this michael maloof than discussed what it means for u.s. soldiers in afghanistan and beyond. we're talking about $20000.00 plus u.s. soldiers who have been injured in combat there we're talking about $2300.00 u.s. soldiers men and women who have died on the combat field of afghanistan and for what for the ability for the taliban to be as strong today as they were 18 years ago to have as much control of the country as they did 18 years ago having said all
of that you just alluded to it i have to say it's amazing to listen to lawmakers right now you have the chance to bring those soldiers home from afghanistan you decide to keep them in harm's way keep them on a battlefield where more of them will die but i think the reason is that they don't want to tie the hands of the president and his authority to act in foreign policy there are waivers instilled in the in these things and also it's been modified the a u.m.s. has been modified overtime through various defense of defense authorization bill so it's basically our license to kill and in anywhere in the world and it's been invoked for. means and purposes well beyond going into afghanistan it allows the president to shoot to do what he did against the salami in iraq or to go into syria. plus there's another element at play to the panel
also wants an assessment as to whether any state act has provided incentives to the taliban to attack u.s. troops or its allies over the last 2 years the york times has been reporting that russia paid bounties to militants to kill american soldiers in afghanistan is kill him open. what makes a bombshell news story outrageous accusations unnamed sources throw rush's name into the headline and you've got all the ingredients necessary to drive us media and political elites why out the bombshell report tonight outbreak one official told n.b.c. that quote american service members died as a result of russian payments to the taliban it doesn't matter that u.s. president donald trump says that based on the evidence he's seen this story is just a hoax the intelligence people didn't even many of them didn't believe it happened at all i think it's a hoax and i think it's a hoax by the newspapers and the democrats that russia has made clear that these
claims are simply not true what is russia's word compared to anonymous sources lack of evidence aside democrats have pounced at the opportunity to roll out their long discredited narrative of trump russia collusion and helsinki time to put in his word over our own intelligence agencies because of putin strong denial now the kremlin is once again denying reports russia offered a bounty to kill americans in afghanistan if these reports are true would trump side with putin yet again now there's many people who won't believe trump or russia but will insist that the new york times is a credible source well what about u.s. intelligence officials not only will they not confirm the reports but they've issued harsh criticism of how the report was presented it makes compromise and disrupt a critical interagency work to collect assess and describe comparability i never heard this and it's disgusting how you continue to politicize intelligence you
clearly don't understand how a role intel gets verified leaks of partial information to reporters from anonymous sources is dying just because people like you're manipulated for political guy trump says it's fake news russia says it's fake news the u.s. intelligence community will not back it up it's just an unsourced claim. came from an anti trump anti russian newspaper with a record of getting things wrong on both topics but that has not stopped the democrats from treating it like it's undisputed fact seems clear from what the intelligence's real so are they providing any evidence to back up their claims no they're rolling out images of soldiers killed in afghanistan and grieving families this is serious so something should be done. that is shawn gregg why are her son was 24 years old when he was killed in afghanistan last summer families grieving in our country tonight the times also reporting that officials are looking
at an april 2019 taliban attack that killed 3 marines now c.n.n. cannot confirm that any deaths in combat in afghanistan can definitively be traced back to this alleged russian plot cranking up the emotional volume and blame doesn't make the story true at this point the new york times is now saying that they have evidence that criminal elements in afghanistan not the taliban received some kind of financial payment not a bounty so this somehow proves they're probably correct well nope that's a technique called moving the goalposts it's often used by people back pedaling away from unproven allegations this speaks to an ugly reality of mainstream american media propaganda declare that trump is bad and russia is also bad and then you can accuse them of almost anything and many people will believe that no evidence necessary listen to this language they refer to analysts kuku did
from other intelligence that the transfers were most likely part of the bounty program if you count the number i'm. likely suspicion he likely connected concluded thought it becomes so tenuous that when you get to the end of the sentence there's nothing there at all. if there was a law that was provided there was a law against bad journalism these people would be arrested if you read this or any story regarding this and you ask yourself what do i know what do i know now what do i suspect not what what hunches or hint but what do i know you know nothing that's the part of this which is just phenomenal to me. there's
a thoughts leave this pollution with don't get up teams online or social media if you don't come around all the new stories when the time to come here the so much more sites check it out if you get a minute for another reporting from moscow it's kevin though in saying thank you for watching us the international were never on the will chew didn't have a great day. 54 jets and more than 1300 military personnel are headed to air force base in alaska where is that to say come on i'll show you what's the reason for any type of enhanced u.s. military presence in this area russia. what is it suddenly about the south china
sea that makes it so that it 11000000000 barrels of oil. take a look at this map who really owns what kind of says no it belongs to us india says no we claim that that belongs to us both of these countries have nuclear weapons capabilities there is reason for concern so that's why we're going to drill down on the story for you today right here on the news with rick sanchez where you know as we always like to say we do believe by golly it's time to do news again. we want to see they want to know. this is. going to get rid of what they don't want rapidly and they're putting the sounds together they're working very slowly this pandemic is making them be even more careful it will continue to be careful. and amy i'm sure in at least
a decade amru of generation or salad partnerships. before. all of club became a household name really now states and other world over. washington ceased to be a city that. tended toward the compromised by what is a sure national interest people talk about gridlock congress to hear people talk about. the right self the radicals in both parties. this rapidly. solving bipartisan centrist approach to politics most domestic and foreign. dates that's for sure.
