5:00 am
you didn't. understand that. good day here friday the 3rd of july in the headlines medics and scientists fear lives are at risk around the world after the u.s. scooped up the entire global supply of an antiviral drug for treating covert 19. at the same time as several countries reporting new clusters of corona virus the world health organization warning that some places may lead to reimpose those lockdowns again but it also goes on to say it doesn't have to be as bad as before. not healthy if you're sick you can't you conflict sometimes people are thinking that it's not the health of the economy we're going to do the 2 together. and the ancient turkish monument for centuries a place of worship now a world heritage museum but the turkish president is in the firing line for wanting
5:01 am
to turn it back into a mosque. there good afternoon from russia for me in the same year artie's world news center today my name is kevin 1st in the e.u. is in talks with an american pharmaceutical giant today about securing enough doses of an anti viral drugs it's a license to treat covert 19 the u.s. government earlier swooped in and bought up the entire global supply of rendez of it stockpiling nearly 3 months worth leaving nothing else for anyone else it's part worldwide for leaving countries vulnerable and in danger in lives. reports. in other countries across the world have been left scrambling in the wake of this announcement that the u.s. essentially bought up the entire world's supply. of this the antiviral drug in the
5:02 am
fight against beat 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 got to 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.
5:03 am
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 that 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 $1000.00 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 being rerouted to the us
5:04 am
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 they 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 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
5:05 am
because as long as a virus is circulating on one continent or in one country that has. 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 this situation well that he has not managed to 19 planned. what we do know though is given that we are just months away from a presidential election in november. every vote right now can't and that is exactly what donald trump may be hoping for and now. as the rest of the world looks on it's clear the world's not out of the woods yet many countries are nursing clusters of new coronavirus infections the world health organization now than warning that some countries may have to reinstate those lockdowns spokes person talk to us about the balance of trying to get on with our lives on one side but also staying healthy on the other. but intense outbreaks going on in in most continents of the
5:06 am
world in the united states in latin america we've got a number of countries tracing enormous outbreaks but we've was very low down breaks 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 so i think there's sometimes people are thinking. that that side the health of the economy the 2 go hand in hand you know if you're not healthy if you're sick your current 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 this the social distancing the hand-washing the aid suring nothing gets in your mouth nose our eyes these things work these things have worked in other countries well in the
5:07 am
united states which is the worst of folk to come through there's been an acceleration of infections to report to in 40 of the 50 states delhi cases in texas alone of troubled over the past fortnight and now the states rolling back its reopening program ordering all bars to close and reducing restaurant capacity bar owners though a furious and simply been singled out and they're filing a lawsuit against the governor over it. far too many people are starving to many people or are ready to just put a bullet in their head because their their livelihoods are dying their businesses
5:08 am
they worked hard for over their kids at home or they don't have anybody else our families matter just far lives that are. you know for vacations we need to be held it is we're close to protect the public good and we need the public to take out to help us we need government aid we were the 1st businesses to close the pier going to be the last businesses to reopen. at the end of the day i don't think the closures are really going to benefit the college at all especially given the fact that golf courses are still open restaurants are still over the prime time. story next few but the future of an ancient monuments in turkey at the center of
5:09 am
a political rally over the president's desire to turn it into a mosque as sophia in istanbul has been a museum from a century before but it was an orthodox christian cathedral and a mosque for several centuries to its name posing unesco world heritage site and a drill for thousands of terrorists. decisions on hold for now but turkey's main administrative bodies are expected to decide on the building status in just 15 days time you disco says it is 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 years as
5:10 am
a worry especially by one member of the eastern orthodox church that could turn millions of christians against islam and the 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 they have severe must not be allowed to be devastated with universal character and turned into a muslim place of worship where they take as gallon and president air 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 at all happy about being told what to do insisting it's got the right to make decisions about its own buildings a presidential spokesman saying that turning the museum into a mosque would not damage its cultural meaning and would still welcome visitors is
5:11 am
some of the reaction we heard from people in turkey. 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 is a museum i hope that it will be open soon and almighty allow 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 is no right to me is trying to revive the ottoman empire. we can see that it was all the movements that he's making and within this framework of good he would like to see also a bridge will more years so if you are as present. to go before the other door period and in this way he thinks that she will have popular support the question
5:12 am
over yourself. is not an issue. between agree government and turkish because 8 years of fear is something that belongs to humanity many jerks or so into a key believe it that it should remain a world heritage and also as such as a museum it gives a lot so who are financial support to their mayor over of wish them well jim out in saying that we don't need another mosque he said that that we should that we should leave it as it is and we struggle be opposed to. it going he said government he wants to agree with. us for his own benefit. israel's for spode its planned an exaggeration of parts of the west bank prime minister benjamin netanyahu has planned a target date of july the 1st past that any announcement of what's planned your next ation of the jordan valley which would surround palestinian controlled territories was proposed by netanyahu last year he got

5:15 am
negotiations. i don't go on these really governments. it's an exception for us going against the worldwide condemnation tel aviv decided to simply ride out the storm by delaying the annexation. anything and related to the battle against the coronavirus will 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. so time is ticking for both israel and its premise to friends in the white house watching faces mounting pressure and protests of his own ahead of the november elections parts of palestine and europe will watch on as rival candidate joe biden who is pro israel has spoken out against an extension for now the west bank holds its breath. right here right ahead donald trump may want

5:18 am
party lost in last week's municipal elections and also to bolster to his re-election bid mccrone is also vying to chart a new course as he put it in the final 2 years of his presidency. donald trump's run into a hurdle in bringing american troops back from afghanistan the congress armed services committee has now put a block of the withdrawal by approving a new amendment to the national defense build it targets the trumpet ministrations almost final decision to withdraw more than 4000 troops from afghanistan this coming autumn the move would reduce the number of troops than to the lowest number since the start of the war in afghanistan way back in 2001 but any american exit also depends on the us taliban peace process to. 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
5:19 am
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 we're talking about $20000.00 plus u.s. soldiers who have been injured in combat there we're talking about 2300 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 there's another element also in play the panel also wants an assessment as to whether any state provided incentives to the taliban to attack u.s. troops or its allies over the past 2 years after the new york times has been
5:20 am
reporting that russia paid bounties to militants to kill american soldiers in afghanistan covering it caleb maupin. 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 rush's word compared to anonymous sources lack of evidence aside democrats have pounced at the opportunity to roll out their long
5:21 am
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 culpability 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 lakes of partial information to reporters from anonymous sources is dying just because people like you're manipulated for political guy
5:22 am
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 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 in syria so something should be done. for 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
5:23 am
back to this alleged russian plot cranking up the emotional lol you know 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 there was a law that was provided if there was
