9:10 am
bearing fruit but the reality is that all of the 12 points that mr listed in his speech earlier this year iran is not abiding by any of those and has nearly 10. really succumbing to the pressure from washington and it's continued to operate quite effectively albeit with lots of pressure and the economic situation becoming very difficult in iran. the u.k. home office has launched a new initiative aimed at the soaring rates of knife crime it will be printing warnings on real life stories on takeaway chicken boxes the move though has drawn criticism from the public and politicians alike so skewed taylor brings us more. you'd be forgiven for thinking the u.k.'s only current battle is with brussels but on the streets of britain doesn't move bloody fight unfolding rising knife crime

9:12 am
up on the inside you'll be able to read the stories of young people who shunned a life of crime in favor of school usec nothing better than a snap and a good read right well 7 it seems not everyone agrees. other than accusations of mismanaging fun the choice of chicken shops for the campaign's target space has hit us full with some people is this some kind of joke why have you chosen chicken shops what's next ny free watermelons instead of investing in a public house approach to violent crime the home office have opted for yet another crude offensive and probably expensive complain they would do better to invest in our communities not demonize them think it's 30 degrees idea you know because most of the people are using the my ferrari the young people so that what i'm talking about why don't those who don't talk about will. to do anything different is a great idea because we need to educate people. to afford to crime special night
9:13 am
right i think they could maybe aim you know public money into more important things critics by labeling the campaign borderline racist saying it no i need assumes that fried chicken is the black community's choice of food but that nah it's other that community's choice of well put but the marketing company behind the campaign is confident it will bring results and has defended its choice of location saying it's a democratic space where the message will reach a wide range of people it was already kind of like this is kind of a new opportunity really to talk screens where you're talking the young kind of 1000016 to 34 year olds has an effect on one person one person can see this message and you know it can have that ripple effect and it can change many people's lives so for us it has an impact to one person is the reason they took actions against all the stuff in my story is because there was an unfortunate incident outside one of the boards inviting him but there was a stop and even if you got the opportunity to raise awareness and spread the
9:14 am
message then of course we're going to choose an outlet where you all reach and that kind of those kind of people. ok just approaching 14 minutes into the program still plenty to bring you including. accusations against voice of america persian we look at the reasons behind all this and if you. join me every. time i'm sure i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics. i'm sure i'll see you then.
9:15 am
please. hello again rush's defense ministry has released footage of its new strategic drone the hunter flying in tandem with a sukhoi fighter jet the fully autonomous aerial vehicle is said to weigh 20 tons
9:16 am
when fully loaded and is believed to have a range of 5000 kilometers it's the zone for surveillance operations void detection by radar a few details about the drones performance being officially disclosed this. journalist voice of america's persian language service has been accused of adopting a staunchly. government line most recently a video way journalists launched a blistering online attack on one of the services former employees despite the fact she complained to the network's editors the tweets are not being deleted. the story . iranian american journalist who covers u.s. iran relations has found herself being targeted online this woman who lives in comfort in the us and enjoys all the privileges of free society affords her has
9:17 am
misused her privilege of freedom of expression by supporting the corrupt terrorist supporting the islamic republic of iran that oppresses and murders its own citizens particularly its women she was terminated when her true mission became known freedom loving people of iran look at this treasonous criminal type of a person as a spy and an enemy of the people now the person calling her a treasonous criminal works for voice of america persia that's a u.s. government funded outlet directed at iranians it's overseen by the broadcast board of governors shrill words for a u.s. government employee right now the irony is that mortaza the is herself a former voice of america persian reporter but this points to a bigger issue which is that in recent years that voice of america persian has shifted its tone very dramatically to the point that its hosts are now attacking those who don't support current policy toward iran and 2017 the broadcast board chairman asked the conservative think tank foreign policy council to review the
9:18 am
government funded programs directed at iran they concluded that u.s. government broadcasts were overly sympathetic to the iran nuclear deal and the preceeding negotiations that took place and to stake a notion that the reunion regime is now friendlier to the united states later the senate appropriations committee passed legislation giving the broadcasting board a green light to counter iranian influence the secretary of state in consultation with the heads of other relevant federal agencies including broadcasting board of governors show coordinate iran carter influence programs funded by the act such programs shoot to counter the polls assertions made by the government of iran against the united states and on. other democratic countries described the support such government provides to terrorist proxies and assess and describe the impact this support to such proxies causes to the people of syria yemen and other areas where the operate since that time voice of america persian has shifted from being
9:19 am
a vehicle for presenting an american perspective to iranians and perhaps a somewhat even handed way apparently being a vehicle for straight up anti-government agitation iran is another example it's a country that never really made the key decision the iranian regime was spending a ton of money on its nuclear program and wanted to halt that a noble objective a good goal worthy one but the threat that iran presents is so much greater than that well let's not forget iran too or china has been a major purchaser of iranian oil avoided america insists that it is not highly partisan and describes itself as free and open all voices american journalists be federal government employees or contractors are expected to adhere to voice of america's social media policy as do we need to clearly in its best practices guide voice of america pursues its mission by produce an accurate balanced and comprehensive reporting program and as well as all mine and social media content
9:20 am
for a global audience particularly for those who are denied access to open and free media i want to point out as well but the journalist with a video way persian who has been accused of smearing his former colleague has described the coverage of the story 1st published by the intercept biased but it all aside the stuff a question give us his thoughts on the controversy. most. journalists they all are so 14 sanctions against you radiance why is it more or donal strong impulse buy look for all just against the islamic they find. the hierarchy in your way. it's been a turbulent week for global markets with a list sounded investors warning that they don't turn could be on the horizon adding to those fears germany europe's economic powerhouse posted negative growth
9:21 am
in the 2nd quarter of this year looks to be heading for recession we asked frankfurt based financial analyst dr marcus kroll for his thoughts on the increasingly ominous signs. heading for a global recession i think yes we are very clearly the signs are not very good and the center of the problem though is not the united states it's not asia although they are also problems coming from the trade dispute and other elements but the center of this crisis i think would be europe we have a number of balances that have been accrued as a result of what i would call in monetary policies i do think that negative interest rates 0 interest rates and quantitative easing have created a lot of problems that are now looking to rebalance and since we have been doing this for a long time i'm afraid that this one could be quite severe recession that we're heading into. well many commentators saving negative data from germany is evidence
9:22 am
that the u.s. china trade war is already taking its toll we asked financial analyst marcus crawl of the conflict long term what breaks it could mean for the global economy here he is again. when you look at the trade dispute between the united states and china. several elements one is i do not think that currently there is a huge impact from that on the world economy and on the business cycle there is a potential long term impact if protections and takes hold and world trade starts to be by all types of new obstacles and those tariffs on non-tariff obstacles it is a good scapegoat for other elements and for other players who basically do not like to see the imbalances that they have been helping the truing themselves. first of all i do not think there will be a deal because reach a deal the european commission would have to reopen the negotiations and they
9:23 am
cannot reopen the negotiations without losing face they have been repeating that they are not going to do that so many times that they cannot do it without with losing face and this is not so much about political choice but about the personal face losing of the of the acting people in the european politicians seem. a lot of what we've heard about the dangers of. just fear mongering actually what what the. minded people in the british politics called project i think that is a real thing when when we think back. before the test taken place there was the same kind of feel mongering actually it was assumed that britain would fall into a c b a recession immediately if people voted to leave the european union and nothing of the sort happened to the country so i do not see any empirical evidence or. evidence that points in the direction that there would be an economic crisis of
9:24 am
any kind being treated in britain. quite possibly the most famous interpreter in the world next with sophie shevardnadze. translated from. his cold war talk that ronald reagan. a lot of people talk about ponzi scam but do people really know what a ponzi scheme and. cash calendar is drawing alfonzo along. this changing page change dard.
9:25 am
whose 1st words were at a low a c. or a challenging post you've got 2 years to live. i have no doubt that what happened was criminal. defense concentrate market is a $1000000000.00 industry these companies have a huge financial motivation to solve these problems there are numerous stuff showing that doctors were keen to chest x. ray concentrate straight infectivity on the patients gives them doctors the wrong stoplight long term stuff why they would keep me from secure those years day. and people still die and i'm always question or so i tried being hard to live when so many have.
9:26 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race off and spearing dramatic to follow only personally i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. with the truth of this too easily. my little 4 son 3 and this is their. role is going to say the boy the business with the mustard so it looks. this is new for folks who. got a fellow buffalo buffalo multilayer. on

when the fate of nations wrists on a leader's words and a misunderstanding could trigger disaster the art of translation becomes crucial in global affairs what does the translator witnessed behind closed doors during one on one negotiations how do you translate those who show to world leaders with the risk of a mistake and do they also have their own impact on global decisions. it is so great to have you on our program welcome thank you so i want to talk about you in this and she put the most part when i go back a little bit when you 1st started working on the level of u.s. so it summits did it. scary you there. reagan i mean like you're literally translating the words of the most powerful man in the world did it at that moment.
9:30 am
i don't think i was scared frankly i don't think that if you're scared of responsibility you want to do this kind of work. it is interesting that this was the 1st time that simultaneous interpretation was used rather than consecutive interpretation when you 1st listen to the speaker and in target what he has said simultaneous interpretation was 1st tried in helsinki at the high level in helsinki during the meeting of george shultz and shevardnadze in the summer of 1985 years and years ago but now it has become rather common practice at that time it was very new i was thrilled i was fascinated not afraid not scared but certainly i felt the responsibility.
