live from our studios in moscow this is our international i'm sean thomas and certainly glad to have you with us the chinese foreign ministry has accused the u.s. of violating international law by breaking into its consulate in houston beijing has vowed to retaliate american agents were seen forcing their way through the back door right after chinese officials were required to vacate the building the raid happened on friday president trump ordered the closure earlier in the week accused beijing of stealing intellectual property while the justice department claimed consular staff were obstructing an investigation officials said that they had been implicated in a fraud probe at a texas research institution meanwhile in the chinese city of chengdu the american consulate has been shut down in a tit for tat measure there have been allegations that both nations were seeking to get rid of sensitive information some footage captured
a man taking rubbish banging out of the building in chengdu one of the bags split and appeared to contain shredded paper. in a related development a chinese researcher has been arrested in san francisco tang is accused of not disclosing her military affiliations in her visa application she is one of 4 visiting researchers who have recently been accused of visa fraud beijing has condemned the crackdown and urged the united states to stop harassing chinese students and researchers and she's done a quarter looks at the ongoing escalation. since the 1970 s. u.s. foreign policy has used more honey than vinegar and its dealings with beijing china has definitely changed as a result but not exactly the way washington wanted it to you know the world was much different than we imagine think you shouldn't which and it would produce a future with bright promise of comedy and cooperation. but today today we're all
still wearing masks and watching the pandemics body count rise because the c.c.p. failed in its promises to the world if we want to have a free 21st century and not the chinese century of which dreams. the old paradigm of blinding gauge with china simply won't get it done speech seems to have a lot in common with that of winston churchill's when he declared an iron curtain had descended across europe dividing it into soviet and western spheres it was the beginning of the cold war and with pump ails us against them rhetoric another cold war between the u.s. and china may be brewing this isn't about containment don't buy that. it's about a complex new challenge that we've never faced before. the u.s.s.r. was closed off from the free world communist china is already within our borders washington's hostile stance is no doubt part of a recent pitfall in sino u.s. relations while waistband in the u.s. accusations of tech that disputes in the south china sea it's all reminding experts
of a warning former president richard nixon made decades ago we must cultivate jointed during the next few decades want it is learning to develop its national strength and potential otherwise we will one day be confronted with the most for middle enemy that has ever existed in the history of the world unfortunately for washington nixon was right when he was president china was still an economically backwards country with its eyes on rapid development fast forward to the present and the communist parties accomplished much of what it set out to do it's lifted millions out of abject poverty it led the country to. what looks like a quick recovery from the covert 1000 pandemic it doesn't seem willing to stop in the face of washington statements. remarks which ignore facts enough of ideological bias and cold war mentality are a hodgepodge of political lies intensively made recently by senior u.s. officials accusations of human rights abuses authoritarian name calling pompei was
even labeled china's system a new tyranny it does all sound a bit crusading but then again it's nothing new in america's foreign policy playbook the troika of tyranny in this hemisphere cuba venezuela and nicaragua has finally met its match pressers regimes and ideologies forces of oppression to tell a tear in ism and domination well despite the trumpet ministrations best efforts the so-called troika of tyranny is still around even where u.s. backed regime change was successful it's still no walk in the park in iraq the government is basically powerless to combat militias that see it as a us puppet and in countries where the u.s. failed like venezuela it's a huge waste of taxpayer money china though is a lot more powerful and with u.s. allies unwilling to get behind this new strategy pelle might need to rethink his approach because. the work has already. started and actually in
my opinion to show corners code to work between china and merica has now much talk during a positive because the united states has never spoke to you know we are thinking of cold war talk to wouldn't do thinking about china who were very clear which country. is more in the world into war definitely specially extra decision to question for many people to understand i think that if you do united states would be really new and ruling in interference into other countries. domestic affairs. yet another standoff is unfolding in the u.s. city of portland on friday night federal troops fired tear gas and rubber bullets at a crowd of activists who were marching on the courthouse and police say that there were brutal clashes between protesters with an african-american trump supporter reportedly stabbed by and to fire member.
federal forces were sent in earlier this week by president trump to quell increasingly violent anti-racism protests some residents and businesses owners have complained that their city has been turned into a war zone by the riots but more than a dozen u.s. mayors most of them democrats have voiced alarm over the federal crackdown and the u.n. is now adding its concern over the security response. peaceful demonstrations that
have been taking place and citizen the u.s. such as portland really might be able to continue with that these positions beaten them and i'll say that people have reported and the journalists risk an arbitrary address to detention being subject to unnecessary disproportionate discriminants or use of force or suffering other violations of the your rights since the riots started in portland 18 people have been arrested on charges including arson and vandalism we heard from some of those involved in the protest movement. but we're very encouraged by the drum circle we weren't even close to just a really nasty. dirty truth from the 1st one that says her i mean he's having with this hit and run with the rubber bullet. night how do you just look at how the. last house. we.
revert to speech. in england face coverings are now mandatory in all public spaces but it has raised the question over who should monitor compliance some major retailers and smaller shops too are saying it's not up to them to enforce the new rules are u.k. correspondent ali reports from friday it's now mandatory for people in england to wear a face mask when they go to shop supermarket so they go to pick up a delivery now we're going to go on to the streets of london to try to see what the public think they should done this before the current virus what instance like the fact that it's on the one people 100 pounds. and ready money other people's health just that that makes perfect picture all government. i think we should have been implementing from the beginning. i think it's important to abide by these 3 was busy think there's a lot of science that goes behind coming up with these rules most of the shops that
i went into really forcing the rules and those that just said that they would recommending people to mosques to cover their faces now many of those shops because don't want to be enforcing those rules because they fear aggression and backlash from sites and members of the public if they were to try to make people wear mosques with hundreds of incidents of violence and abuse directed at retail stuff every day we welcome denouncement that in force much will be left to the. authorities rather than potentially putting hard working retail colleagues in harms way if. someone refuses to wear a face mask probably we can kindly asked him to relief but as to enforcing it it's not viable there will be certain people who would be upset about it. and indeed the most controlling parts of us also as well is
a weekend in force of we don't always encourage people to have it but. god knows how rude and sort of the government of said that those who refuse to wear face masks when going into shops could be fined up to $100.00 pounds should an individual without an exemption refuse to wear a face covering a shop can refuse them entry and can call the police if people refuse to comply the police have formal him for some powers and can issue a fine and the police don't seem to be too keen either saying that making them in force that is both unrealistic and unfair policing the wearing of face coverings in shops can't be a priority because we simply don't have the resources to expect my colleagues to be policing the supermarket aisles looking for those shoppers not wearing a face covering is unrealistic and unfair the u.k. has had one of the worst coronavirus death tolls of any country around the world there are some who say that these measures are better late than never but many
others who feel that it's far too little thought through they easily artsy london. thousands in jerusalem have been protesting against the under fire israeli prime minister demonstrators gathered in front of that benyamin netanyahu has residence in the city as well as add some 250 intersections across the country 10 people were arrested for disturbing public order according to the police it has been reported that the authorities have now cleared the area outside netanyahu home. now rallies against to be economic fall out of the covert pandemic and government policies sol left and right wing groups clash protestors are calling for netanyahu to resign blaming him for mishandling the crisis and the corruption allegations against supporters of the pm were out as well giving their backing to israeli leader.

a mosque. chrysanthemum paulus a former greek ambassador to canada believes that the change in sofia status is down to the president attempting to take attention away from a troubled economy. well i think that he was doing it out maybe also for internal reasons because his popularity is is dropping now in that turkey because of the economic crisis and also my impression is that he is trying to put down at the. founder of modern turkey so this is an attack also against the demolished regime in turkey so basically it's an it's an internal problem that has international ramifications i don't think that he cares anything about statements being done the only thing that he might care would be if concrete measures were taken like the e.u. taking sanctions against against turkey for violating international
law and violating that character tauriel integrity of 2 of its member states which is greece and cyprus we must not forget that the e.u. has taken sanctions against russia for reasons much less. and which which i personally don't don't agree with them and yet it refuses or the moment to take sanctions against turkey. the chief of a u.k. arts charity has accused british museums of being hypocritical in their support of the black lives matter movement errol francis says the institution should 1st relinquish items in their collections taken by force from africa he spoke to r.t. . you've got to clean up your own house before you start to other people that's the simple response to it it's contradictory really to note. the home issue the colonial proclivities and also the not content of. what.
i. also support but not as much it seems incompatible to me the comments come after several high profile galleries and museums responded to the black lives matter movement with words of support the british museum's director for example wrote a blog post last month saying the institution stands in solidarity with black people throughout the world but the british museum itself has been under pressure for years to return works of art looted from former colonies those include the ben and bronze is taken by british soldiers from nigeria the greek parthenon marbles and easter island statue u.k. legislation currently prevents national institutions from returning looted items in their collections except in the case of art stolen during the nazi era but a british museum spokesperson said the institution is working on changes when it comes to displaying the objects and is being open about the history of the collections errol francis though isn't convinced by that. the role of new c.m.c.
is being called into question and also the means by which they shouldn't be assembled is being questioned this quote documentation about how these came into the possession of the museum. we need to know is whether or not it was taken with consent when asking for a new kind of music that is more humanitarian and pays greater attention to human rights. armenian and by john are locked in a deadly border dispute and the shock waves are now being felt here in moscow which is home to large communities from both countries more than 30 people have been arrested in a string of incidents so far in the latest clash a group of azerbaijani men were caught on camera smashing the windows of an armenian cafe a member of staff was reportedly assaulted just a few hours earlier
