12:01 pm
a very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at our teacher in moscow in joining us this hour. the russian president has been in the saudi capital riyadh this monday on his 1st visit to the gulf state in over a decade a lot of reporting held talks with king solomon and the crown prince signing off on a raft of cooperation agreements leaders also exchanged gifts with the russian leader presenting his counterparts with a rare arctic falcon and receiving a painting in return. reports. just have a look at this massive wooden door behind me the decorations on it the shiny marble and the number of security guards behind my shoulder there you have it we'll tell you that we're inside the wall palace of the saudi king the venue for the 1st visit
12:02 pm
of the russian president in more than a decade to this country however when mr putin just arrived the whole event began with a bit of an embarrassment for the orchestra that was welcoming him was would like however when president putin stepped inside the wall palace it was clear that the saudi side tried to do their best to make sure that mr putin feels like he's at home here and the wall residence and that was reflected through the things that the 2 leaders said to each other once they sat down in the so-called blue hall this visit would be very productive and they will continue this cooperation between our countries by that's what ties between saudi arabia and russia have progressed in numerous areas and we
12:03 pm
consider russia to be our friend. russia pays a lot of attention to his deepening bilateral ties with saudi arabia our bilateral ties were stopped waste of a 90 years ago in 1926 the soviet union was the 1st foreign country to recognize the young kingdom we value your efforts to boost our ties. the room was obviously full of all kinds of government officials and the wealthiest entrepreneurs from both countries this is how much riyadh and moscow want to do business with each other but they're also up for sorting out the issues that are troubling the middle east nowadays just a little earlier i walked along the streets of riyadh and looked into the main things on the agenda of the leaders of saudi arabia and russia this monday.
12:04 pm
saudi arabia and russia is a remarkable example of how 2 countries could be great partners or friends and foes at the same time everything that riyadh gets itself involved in and the middle east be it iran or syria gets full support from washington and you do realize that and all these cases russia is on the different side of the barricade. but when the russian leader and the saudi crown prince get along so well in person by the way they are the authors of probably the most famous high profile high 5 in
12:05 pm
the world the chances that the dialogue could work will always be very high. i have very good relations with both the king and the crown prince we have been making good headway practically and. surely we do have to bear in mind that the 2 countries are the world's largest oil producers are their competitors you know in this case most likely opec plus partners too so all kinds of oil and gas and issues related to the energy sector are on the agenda especially after the drone attack from last month on one of saudi arabia's most important oil refineries which the country's output by almost a half. and almost put the region on the brink of a real crisis.
12:06 pm
yemen's who the rebels said we did it washington and allies almost immediately blamed it all on to iran it was feared that a u.s. led strike on iran could have been imminent the incident even led to vladimir putin suggesting that saudi arabia whose army is almost 'd totally dependent on arms imports from the us should buy a russian made air defense missile systems it's another chance for mr putin to sell those but even without them 2 $1000000000.00 worth of contracts are expected to be signed between moscow and riyadh.
12:07 pm
the syrian government forces have been advancing towards the turkish border this monday after a deal was struck with the kurds to help propel and ongoing military offensive artie's video agency roughly has obtained footage of the syrian arab army pushing into a cup province in the country's north east to break down the developments here's paul slayer. well as can see in the video that we've obtained there are armed men and vehicles crossing the border and entering the area has a cut in the far north east of syria now this confirms earlier reports that we were receiving from local media in the area suggesting and saying that the syrian troops were advancing more towards and that the kurds were out on the streets celebrating as reports of a deal between the kurdish authorities and the syrian authorities broke and that deal to quote is aimed at preventing and confronting the turkish aggression what is
12:08 pm
significant is particularly this video showing for the 1st time in years that all syrian army has reached kurdish controlled areas where they've been cut off from for the long time now the long term plan will be for your kurdish backed syrian democratic forces as well as your syrian army to patrol the syria turkish border and for your kurdish militia who are guarding the checkpoints to allow them free passage the syrian media continues to a port that the syrian army is advancing northwards we're hearing from lebanese television that in the coming hours they should be entering the strategically important border town that is held by the kurds of called bani at the same time there are reports that the pro turkish forces have cut off the main road traveling east west through the kodesh territory already on sunday you had your syrian army reportedly reaching the area of banbridge in aleppo now that's just 60 kilometers
12:09 pm
away from co bani and this is after kurdish militia allowed them to pass freely through their checkpoints now this comes as we continue to receive reports that on sunday the turkish backed forces reached the area of tell so far more than 10 people have been killed on both sides many more have been displaced unfortunately it seems as if the situation is just going to deteriorate. the e.u. has been quick to react to the turkish offensive it has condemned the operation against the kurds and called on and brought to halt its military action in northeastern syria france and germany have also temporarily stopped arms exports to their nato partners. security and political analysts we spoke to says they're still room for diplomacy despite the tensions the syrian government considers itself the actual suffered in power in all of city so therefore it doesn't need any agreement with the turks to actually step in and defend its border against any. attacks i
12:10 pm
think it is possible to reach an agreement to give the turks what they are asking for formally they're asking for security for securing the border that could could be put on the table and could be discussed and some progress could be done because i don't think the syrian central government in damascus disapproves any country's efforts to defend its borders this is a very normal request however this will need some coordination specially after so many years of tension and so much bloodshed has been spilled in this part of the world the tension is very high but i think that there is still room for diplomacy. for his part has said he hopes both turkey and the kurds can prevent detained islamic state fighters from fleeing amid the chaos kurdish kurdish officials have already said that hundreds of family relatives of foreign i still members have escaped from the tension of takes a look at how the crisis may unfold. this is turkish and kurdish fighters beating
12:11 pm
each other black and blue and there's hate begets hate a hydra that was thought to be called dead is raising its head again. the version does not only threaten the reactivation or revival of islamic states but has revived and activated it stills in chemistry and other areas left all alone against the turkish military under its proxies the as d.f. needs every man and woman who can hold a rifle to defend their homes so the guards abandon some of their prison posts and some 800 i saw affiliates missed no chances here breaking loose from captivity and more sensing the lax watch over them are no longer afraid to rattle their cages both of them running for the hills there and while both damascus and its neighbors have plenty to be concerned about because of this it's europe that is really
12:12 pm
worried. the turkish operation in syria is our main concern our common wish is that the offensive must end we believe that it risks on the one hand creating an unacceptable humanitarian situation and on the other helping to reemerge in the region military action will undermine the security of the coalition's local partners namely the kurdish forces and risk protract it is that ability in northeast syria providing 13 ground for the resurgence of dash and the latest jailbreaks might be only the very beginning of a truly massive outpour i mean look at this there are isolated tensions centers all over the kurdish controlled areas they hold tens of thousands of islamic state affiliates thousands of them being former fighters actual former fighters and many of them holding foreign passports yes the e.u.
12:13 pm
had every. type of warning bell ringing for them the kurds begged europe to take back jihad us with the e.u. passports and put them on trial at home well the position of doctor by many european states have also been adopted by many other states across the globe countries are very reluctant to take back home anyone who's been connected with so-called islamic state as a foreign fighters because a the judicial systems within many liberal democracies haven't got the ability to bring evidence that would be sufficiently robust to get through the court systems and prosecute these people and the 2nd thing is to try and monitor them would cost a huge amount of money europe of course is haunted with p.t.s.d. terror from the caliphate headed smite and we're living those moments he's europe's worst nightmare.
12:14 pm
so condemn call for dialogue stop every last arms crate to turkey all you want now like fixing a crumbling house with duct tape over worked well the situation is worse because evidently old these foreign fighters which were detained under the kurdish. detention centers are now being opened in different ways and these people are being freed on the territory which means does this people 1st of all can be active in the territory of syria again and possibly being foreign fighters they might even decide or choose to return to europe and therefore to uk t.v. there are cells in europe again. russia's defense ministry has firmly rejected
12:15 pm
allegations that its jets deliberately carried out airstrikes on 4 hospitals in northwestern syria in may the claims were published in the new york times on sunday following an investigation by the publication of a quarter has the details the article says that the russian air force has been bombing targets hospitals in syria in order to crush government opposition now what kind of evidence does the new york times claim to have they say they have unpublished radio recordings that were allegedly caught by residents in the region and anonymous witnesses who claim to have identified russian planes carrying out bombings against hospitals now we have heard a response from the russian defense ministry and they say that the publication has befallen prey to misinformation 1st of all we'd like to express our regret that a major news outlet has fallen victim to the manipulations of terrorists and the british intelligence services the real conditions of life in the deescalation zone this on their allocated to control
12:16 pm
a terrorist group related to. a very different from what the new york times imagine is done to be the ministry went over a number of problems with these radio recordings number one being the fact that russian pilots don't communicate bombing targets over radio in the 1st place russian jets in syria don't receive target coaled they detain open radio transmission this is why all the supposed evidence presented by the new york times is worth less than the paper it was printed on and number 2 the gadgets used to pick up these radio frequencies and which are featured in the new york times article are too expensive for ordinary residents to afford moscow says that these are most likely connected to an air strike warning system developed by an american company deployed by british intelligence and handed over to the white helmets and so the ministry has cast serious doubt over. a serious suspicion as to who exactly are these anonymous sources there is no other reason except the connection to the
12:17 pm
white helmet which acts on that the thought to have just had to explain the absolute in the name of all sources in the new york times article. there was also something about one of the hospitals being located in a cave right there was one located in the cave of kafir azita and just recently actually my colleague roman kosar of visited caves in the same area as that one he was part of a press tour that included 80 correspondents from around the world and what they saw from this this expedition was not hospitals in the caves but actually large arsenals of weapons often these weapons were made in the west so with the ministry of defense is response it seems the facts aren't clearly against russia as the new york times claims the u.k. is opposition leader jeremy corbyn has dismissed today's queen's speech as a farce we'll tell you why after this short break.
12:18 pm
what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and you. want to. have to go right to the press this is what before 3 of the more people. interested always in the water. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy from day shouldn't let it be an arms race of his own spearing dramatic development only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk.
12:19 pm
welcome back the leader of the u.k. labor party has issued a scathing response to this monday's queen's speech which laid out the embattled conservative government's post crankset legislative agenda jeremy corbin dismissed the plans as ridiculous saying they would never receive the approval of lawmakers to edwards joins us live now with more on that talk us through the parliamentary debate on the queen's speech. well as expected jeremy corp and didn't exactly agree with much of the queen's speech especially considering it being boris johnson's agenda but what he did do is use the opportunity to poke fun at the government and
12:20 pm
labeling it a joke now specifically what he's referring to is the parliamentary arithmetic and therefore we see boris johnson's working majority of minus 45 not to mention the arguably appalling track record of the prime minister considering he's lost 100 percent of the time in the commons because of all of that jeremy corbin believes a labor government could even be imminent. this is pretty good there is going to be such a farce as a government with a majority of minus 45. 100 percent records. in the house of commons. sitting in a legislative agenda they know cannot be delivered this problem and. now boris johnson is way short of a working majority so the chances of any of this actually being implemented or
12:21 pm
rather slim basically making this queen's speech essentially a wish list or if you like a manifesto pledge ahead of an inevitable general election now on the issue of a general election jeremy corbyn himself was jeered and booed by the opposition because they say why haven't you voted for one they believe that he's shying away and hiding from a general election but in corbin's defense he says we would have a general election he would vote for one if indeed and no deal is taken off the table now as we know boris johnson the himself for quite some time has been pushing this agenda do or die by october 31st and that's something today that the queen reiterated margaret government's priority has always been. to secure the united kingdom's departure from the european union on the 31st of october. my government intends to work towards a new partnership with the european union based on free trade and friendly
12:22 pm
cooperation so that brings me on to what comes next and this week what we will be saying on thursday and friday is the council summit and that is really the crucial time for boris johnson to strike a deal with his european counterparts but crucially it's the day before the parliament sits the emergency session on saturday the 19th and that is a crucial day because of the bend bill now what the ben bill requires of the prime minister is to seek an official extension to bret's it unless he can get a deal by that date now for boris johnson he's saying that jeremy corbin would delay breaks even further but sticking with him he will deliver the will of the people and deliver on time. coverage just to the british people and the screen speech to that was all their priority we should be the democratic will of the people. because. well it is said that if deals are ever made
12:23 pm
they're made at the 11th hour so for boris johnson this really is the moment of truth for him in his career but of course for bracks. artie's shadier edwards daschle reporting live from london then q. england's 1st national child gender reassignment clinic is in the firing line over claims of under research and experimental treatment is now being sued by a mother of a patient and a nurse who used to work there they're asking the court to ban the tavistock center from prescribing hormone blocking medication unless a quarter size it's in the best interest of the child the clinic and the trust in charge of the gender identity services in north london are also being accused of giving families misleading information marcus evans a former governor of the clinic and the husband of the nurse suing the facility argues that the treatment is indeed under researched it is a controversial treatment with a volatile who. long reaching consequences. we
12:24 pm
really don't know what's going on in this area and yet the trust was acting as if 'd there was nothing to look at everything was fine and we just carry on as will of never being again transition and just again young kids making decisions all the evidence like this is all maybe are i couldn't as a parent make a decision not that i'm going to you know what you want how do you talk to a 12 year old about the implications of their treatment so they will know when they actually fought when they only to look at completely different person the clinic has not given comment but did state it provides a high level service for us patients that's why the controversy around the treatment the number of referrals to the clinic has increased in recent years marcus evans again believes the topic of gender dysphoria has become highly politicized and the while being a patients is overlooked. there's something about this area is highly politicized
12:25 pm
which means this is the same. questions over your keys that being transferred out of it and actually normie made it to practice 'd is not taking place in one of the a is not enough research there's not enough interest in the downside of what's going on there's not enough scrutiny old. 'd of the issue of consent and i think we need an end and regulatory poldi that would say 'd these controversial 'd area and not reduce the trustees to being go with the approach trans lobbies is no it's not any of anything necessarily related. to what extent the political forces draw i ving what's going on in this area that to me is a breakdown for this hour thanks for telling us. what
12:26 pm

12:29 pm
policy. cross knocking some real news i'm joined by my guest here in moscow glenn these and he is a professor at the higher school of economics as well as author of the decay of western civilization and resurgence of russia also we have exhibit moreau he is the pounder of the center of political strategic analysis trackball and we're joined by dmitri bobbitt she is a political analyst and editor at me internet media project origin across the uk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate it's go to glenn let's talk about top of the news right here we have to nato countries at odds in a 3rd country where neither one of them should be there under international law now damascus having all but one this conflict this international proxy war they must have some kind of morbid sense of humor watching 2 hour 2 allied countries in the same military alliance at odds with each other the president the united states is
12:30 pm
telling the president of turkey if you go over certain lines which we don't know what they are they can face devastating sanctions again what's going on in nato. well trumps rhetoric and also be a bit cautious with similar well he has told his his treasury department you know prepare for it but also told north korea they should expect theory about you know a few weeks later expressing you know how they fell in love so it is you know it does go a bit back and forth now but it is interesting with nato united states and nato. nato because at the moment we have turkey wanting to as a representation itself according to this emerging multiple of distribution of power which means they don't necessarily want to only align with with the u.s. or russia or iran or china and when they want to have that be a little can you can you play that game with the need to announce it would be that would be unique and i think.
