Belarus foreign minister blames NATO, West for Ukraine war

"Russia made its case to the world Saturday for its war in Ukraine repeating a series of grievances about its neighbor and the west to tell the UN General Assembly that Moscow had no choice but to take military action At the heart of foreign minister Sergei Lavrov's address was a claim that the U.S. and its allies not Russia as the west maintains are aggressively undermining the international system that the UN represents Through an interpreter he said the future of the world is being decided today It is clear to any impartial objective The question is whether or not that is going to be the kind of order with one hegemon at the head of it He also took aim at U.S. support of Taiwan Washington is trying to turn the entire world in its own

"Already, but heading into this week, he really got legal blows. Latissimus is lawsuit against former president Trump and his three eldest children, of course, that being the New York attorney general really says that they were inflating real estate assets in order to defraud the state of New York City seeking that they'd be banned from doing business for a certain amount of years. And then you have the DoJ winning on an appeals court saying that in fact they can access those classified documents that a lower court judge appointed by president Trump had said that they would be blocks in using. So this really has been a challenging week for former president Trump. And it doesn't seem like it's going to get any easier because the special master that he pushed to get appointed was saying he has till next Friday to prove and present evidence that the FBI quote that they planted evidence, which is a claim that former president Trump has been making. So you have the special master also saying, what is the evidence that you're going to have? Yamiche world leaders were blasting Russia at the UN General Assembly, chief among them President Biden. Can you talk about how President Biden did and about this global standoff with Russia? President Biden and really world leaders have said over and over again that they're going to stand by Ukraine. And I think it's in some ways remarkable when you step back and think that everyone thought Ukraine, at least the experts that I talked to, thought Ukraine was going to really lose this war against Russia pretty quickly. And what you've seen is crane not only stand up to Russia, but also in some cases, when back villages and territory, and now you have Vladimir Putin dealing with protests in his own country and dealing with people that are not wanting to deal with the draft that he's put out because he's wanting to mobilize something like 300,000 more troops to fight this war. Some experts say that Vladimir Putin has boxed himself in. When President Biden is really wanting to get on the world stage, you saw him this week and say Russia is wrong for this that they are continuously doing something that is illegal and The White House dance is that Russia needs to really be dealt with here and that they don't want to get into a direct conflict with Russia but that they also want to make

"In the newsroom, I'm Denise Pellegrini. This is Bloomberg, right? Denise, thanks very much. 11 minutes here before the top of the hour. It's time for the media review. From The Washington Post, South Korean president Yun suk yu was caught on a hot mic calling U.S. congressional members idiots. Yun said that they could be a potential embarrassment for President Biden if they did not approve funding for a global public or four global public health. Yoon had just met with Biden at the UN General Assembly in New York. President Biden had pledged $6 billion to a public health campaign that fights aids tuberculosis and malaria all around the world. The funding would require congressional approval, Yun was overheard saying it would be so humiliating for Biden if these idiots don't pass it in Congress. HSBC and standard chartered bank here in Hong Kong have raised their main lending rates for the first time in four years. It pumps up rates for property owners and businesses at a time when the economy is struggling. Hong Kong's biggest lender, HSBC, and standard chartered. They adjusted rates by 12 and a half basis points. It is an interesting discussion why rates are so low here and why they are not following U.S. rates in lockstep, given the pegged exchange rate, but that's a discussion. We'll have to have another day. From Reuters, China has sent officials from the China securities regulatory commission and the ministry of finance to Hong Kong. This is in order to assist U.S. auditors with their inspections of Chinese companies. China's southern airlines and GDS holdings are among the U.S. listed Chinese companies involved in this process. And by the way, the process is expected to last. About 8 to ten weeks. And that's the media. We're shot. All right, let's get over to our next guest. Henrietta PacMan head of a global fixed increment all spring. Henry had to thank you so much for joining us. I've been asking this question of bonds now in the U.S. I'm looking at also obviously you look at the duration here as well, representing a buying opportunity. Well, there's only looking a lot more interesting than they have in years. So yes, I would say that this is an area to start looking at. And if you look at investment grade bonds, you're over 5% now. That's the case in the UK as well. And even on the European side, you've got your investment grade credit heading towards 4% at this juncture. So it would be tempting to buy the two year at 4.12%, but obviously you're basically losing money over these two years because the inflation rate is higher than that. But I guess in today's day, losing less money is better than losing a lot of money. I think that you've called it right there. We are in an interesting situation where the message this week is that central banks are serious about dealing with inflation and the moves that we're seeing in the markets, a testimony to that. And that's going to have an impact on growth. And that's going to have an impact on the economy. So they're looking to slow down the economy. We're going to have to see by how much. So it is a question of looking at pockets of opportunity at this juncture. You'd also have to be fairly confident that the dollar can maintain its gains as well. The currency moves that we've seen this year have been quite extraordinary and we are seeing king dollar at the moment and we've been respecting that dollar strength. Is there for a reason? And I absolutely it will be interesting to see if that holds. And it's been interesting to see in the last couple of days. It is starting to be a topic we've seen Japan move. We've seen disappointment post the rate hike in the UK and the impact that that's had on Sterling. Currency is a consideration and what you do with it. And whether you hedge it or not. So with fixed income, you do have to pay a lot of attention to the currency and Warren Buffett famously doesn't like bonds because he's concerned about the currency fluctuation. In Japan, they intervene, which, okay, we have seen a 20% move in the end weaker against the dollar. But all they would have to do is adjust the yield curve control program, yields would shoot up in the currency would, too, so it's a little funny to intervene on one side when you could actually do it and not call it intervention on another side. Absolutely for that would be a big step for Japan. And what would be the impact of that? And some people say that could really be a complete and total shock to the global bond market. I think it would be a shock to the global markets. If it happened, I don't think it would be necessarily a surprise. It's something that would make sense, but I think it would be a shock for sure. Well, you know, of course, we saw the intervention by the Japanese authorities into the currency markets to try and support the yen to give it some more strength as it were fairly short lived at the we are still above where we were. They do that, but it also begs the question now, what's the Central Bank doing? What is the bank of Japan now doing? Are doing the same thing over and over again, hoping for a different result, which is Einstein's definition of insanity. Investors have been betting against the bank of Japan for many years. I think it's a tricky one to call. That being said, I mean, Japan has got less of an inflation issue than other geographies. So at the moment, they can fall back on that. But yes, we're seeing the currency we're seeing the impact in terms of global markets. It is a harder position to hold at this point, it will be very interesting to see how it evolves. So as we look across the yield curve generally, where do you see the most value? I mean, you talked about the short U.S. rates. I think that is an interesting interesting place to look. A fair amount is now priced in in that area of the market. I touched on investment grade. I think again, credit, I think that's another area to look at. Nice combination there because you've got a bit of protection because rates have gone up on the government side, spreads have also widened. So with concerns building about global growth, that gives it an extra bit of cushion. As well to look at. So these are areas of the market that are of interest. Other thing to denote and we've seen a number of emerging markets be a lot more proactive actually than the developed markets counterparts in terms of raising rates. And they've been ahead of the game in that sense in many geographies. So I think that's another interesting one to look at. And we were talking about the dollar. The question mark there is behavior. Dollar, of course. But I do think it's an interesting one to watch as well. Where's the crossover point on the yield curve if we look at, say, ten year yields spiking 18 basis points if they dropped 18 basis points, that would be a sign that people were looking at recession. Where is that crossover line for you for the tenure? Well, I think we've crushed it, right? If you look at the shape of the curve in the U.S. and we're about 40 basis points between your twos and tens negative that is already a reflection of what the market is thinking in terms of growth prospects. All right, Henrietta, thank you for joining us, Henrietta PacMan, head of global fixed income at all spring with us live here. Top stories coming up next Paul Allen joins us. This is Bloomberg. This

"Well, if there's one thing that should make us anxious, is of course climate change and it's time to speak now to Chloe Ferrand, who's a senior reporter and investigations lead for climate home news. Chloe, the United Nations General Assembly as we know is in session at the moment. Can you tell us more about the pressing climate issues being discussed there? Yes, well, good morning, Georgina. Well, the UN General Assembly is a moment for the world to reflect on some of the big challenges and set priorities for the year. And of course, tackling climate change is one of them. Although this year, there are concerns that the war in Russia and deepened geopolitical tensions are eroding momentum on climate action. So UN secretary general Antonio Guterres didn't mince his words on Tuesdays when he talked about the perils facing the world in his opening speech to the session. And so in his words, we are gridlocked in colossal global dysfunction and the international community is not ready or willing to tackle the big challenges of our time. That that is the case for climate change. He is saying, and that is also partly because of a lack of international corporation. So on the climate front, one way this manifests itself is the lack of funding for nations reeling from climate disasters. So you will remember, for example, devastating flooding in Pakistan, one of the world's worst ever climate disasters. Now the Pakistani government faces a reconstruction bill of $30 billion. This might surprise some listeners, but currently wealthy nations have obligations to provide funding to help developing countries cut emissions and help them adapt to climate impacts. There is no obligation for them to provide money to help them recover from climate disasters. So at the moment, humanitarian aid is playing that role, but the amount of money that is being raised is often inadequate and is often slow to reach people. So developing countries have called for a new funding channel to help nations address losses and damages caused by climate disasters. In the UN jargon, this is simply referred to as loss and damage. Now back to the UN General Assembly, all this context is relevant because the UN secretary general Antonio Guterres has been trying to break the deadlock on this. What's happening is a wealthy nation of resisting cause to provide bespoke and additional loss and damage, finance, despite what we've seen in Pakistan and in other places around the world. So on Tuesday, he called on advanced economies to tax record profits, oil and gas companies have been making since the start of the war in Ukraine. And redirect some of the money to developing countries like Pakistan. So then can recover from climate disasters. Now this proposal is compelling because it makes the polluters pay for the consequences of their pollution. But there's also limitations that analysts have been discussing over the last couple of days. These windfall taxes on oil and gas companies are designed to be temporary. For example, in the UK, it's been announced for three year period only, whereas this need for funding for victims of climate disasters requires a much more longer term solution. Now one thing that we should just note from this week is that on the sideline of the UN General Assembly, I mean, this is really being discussed at the leaders level. This is really dominating some of the discussions. But on the sidelines, Denmark, this small Nordic country was the first country in the world to actually pledge some specific loss and damage finance. Scotland's done it before, but Scotland isn't a nation, a member state of the UN. So the amount of Denmark's pledge is small, we're talking $13 million only Pakistan needs 13 30 billion, but symbolically, this is really significant. And the question now is, will others follow? No, absolutely. Just time for a very, very quick look at this congressional investigation in the U.S. into climate disinformation. Yes, I think it's surprising that this story hasn't got more media attention. So this trove of emails are exchanges between a big oil companies like Exxon, Chevron and shell, and lobbyists working on their behalf. So this congressional investigation are basically has led to the disclosure of more than 200 pages of these internal emails. And basically the exposed oil companies lobbying tactics and how they think about their public image and reputation. So what really is happening here is that the inner workings of the PR machine serving these oil companies is really being exposed. It shows, for example, the eggs on mobile and Chevron tried to water down the climate commitments of the oil and gas climate initiative, which is a group of oil and gas companies which aims to accelerate emission cuts. Shortly after joining the group, Exxon and Chevron tried to remove language in support of the Paris agreement. Which obviously experienced a lot of pushback in this group. And there's another few examples of, for example, a shell, the lobby is working for shells and internal emails from them, for example, saying that basically NGO campaigns have been really effective against some of their operations. And in one email or shell, press officer wishes bed bugs on climate activists. How extraordinary Chloe, thank you very much, indeed, that's Chloe farran there. And this is the globalist on monocle 24. And finally, we tend to Switzerland where the 18th Zürich film festival kicks off today. Over the next 11 days, a total of a 146 films will be shown, 15 of which are world premieres. The festival has been growing in importance over the last few years, becoming a platform for fall and winter premieres across Europe. Well, earlier, monocles color to rebel caught up with Christian youngin, who's the artistic and executive director of the Zürich film festival. Carlos started by asking him about what to expect of this year's edition of the event. Last year we had over 100,000 visitors and this year, it looks even better. We kicked off ticket sales on Monday and it is going way above our expectations from the moment you have big names to announce such as Eddie Redmayne or Serbian Kingsley, people get interested. And it's very funny to see how different stars trigger different audiences. The younger audience is really going for Eddie Redmayne. The day we announced that he would attend, we had teenagers coming to our offices, asking for tickets. And the surveying Kingsley is very popular with bourgeois audience, maybe because of the film in daliland he plays Salvador

She accuses them of lying about the value of most of their properties in order to get more favorable loan terms and taxes. James said Trump claimed his apartment had 30,000 ft² when it was really 11,000, and he did the same for his office building at 40 Wall Street. The patent of fraud and deception that was used by mister Trump and the Trump organization for their own financial benefit is astounding.

"Out an ambitious global agenda at the un general assembly. Here's how it compares to reality by ian bremmer. Everything is easier said than done. And that's especially true for big challenges like for example trying to establish america's place in the twenty first century world or persuading other governments to place their confidence in you but no matter how tall the tasks we shouldn't dismiss a presidential speech at the united nations as only hot air with that in mind. Let's look closely at president. Biden's i address to the united nations general assembly last week and compare it with the choices. The biden administration has actually made the agenda biden laid out at the. Un was plenty ambitious. His priorities are ending this pandemic addressing the climate crisis managing the shifts in global power dynamics shaping the rules of the world on vital issues like trade cyber and emerging technologies and facing the threat of terrorism as it stands today does he mean what he says. Covert nineteen biden has pledged to vaccinate the world and he told the un that the us has shipped more than one hundred sixty million doses of covert nineteen vaccine to other countries with promises to do much more through kovacs the global vaccine facility. The president also held a virtual cove nineteen summit meeting on the u. n. g. sidelines last week to demonstrate his administration's commitment to leading the ongoing pandemic response today. The us has donated more vaccine than any other country but to raise the number of people vaccinated worldwide from the current thirty percent to the for seventy percent by september. Twenty twenty. two experts estimate that eleven billion doses will be needed biden has committed the us donate five hundred million more doses of the pfizer vaccine to developing countries beginning next year. But if that goal is to be mad his administration needs a clear stance on booster shots for already vaccinated people and for first shots for less at risk young people mixed messages from the biden administration on this question leave other countries wondering what they can expect from the us and other wealthy governments if they prioritize providing booster shots for their own people it would make the current goals virtually impossible to reach extending covert nineteen's life in much of the world and poorer countries have good reason to be skeptical washington as promised five hundred eighty million doses but has so far delivered.

I think we all have to figure out or figure out his. All of this is tied into the bigger fight over the size and scope of the stimulus. Bill in this hostage association between the moderates in the progressives over whether the bipartisan bill goes for or the the secondary reconciliation. Bill goes for select. This is. there's a lot of pieces to this puzzle. Yeah i mean you have. There is now a desperate effort to try to find a way to convince the parliamentarian to to put an immigration proposal inside this larger package. That joe manchin is saying he does not want to do and that we cannot. This is the problem with the again. I what i love it. If the parliamentary was fired absolutely Would of course You make love at the parliamentarian. It'll be much better. i will fucking crush it. I will be honored. And i would do you proud but here. Here's the here's the problem. Chuck i'm your guys. Call love it. He's gonna be the parliamentary again. You'll be amazed by what i think. Is a budget relevance. I will shock you by how much you can do. You know what everyone's everyone's like okay. Well if schumer fires. The parliamentary doesn't need mentioned incinerator grew true. Come harris vice-president harris overrules the parliamentarian It would need sixty votes to stop her. And so you need ten democrats opera probably not going to happen to write but all of this is sort of beside the point. joe manchin incur- cinema are not going to vote for an underlying bill that includes in the bill. Something that the parliamentarian didn't want because they fucking care about the and they care these stupid fucking rules and they care about the parliamentarian. All roads lead back to joe manchin and catch the cinema and the danger right now is that they seem like they would be willing to let the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill die rather than make concessions on the reconciliation. Bill in order to save the bipartisan bill. And that's what's really dangerous for. Millage i paul and some of the progressives in the house are also threatening to tank the bipartisan. They should lessons paired with this broader reconciliation. Bill feels like what we need to do. Is hire a hostage negotiator to work for ron. Clean to see if he can referee this thing. It no but what i worry but are they think mentioned cinema will let the hostage die at this point. That's what i mean. Yeah there they don't have a lot of negotiation like these are. Shoot the hostage people if i'm if i'm a progressive in the house i'm absolutely voting to take the fucking bipartisan infrastructure. Bill at this point. Because if you don't follow through on that then no one cares what you say so you have to follow through on that and basically mentioned cinema or daring them to to to vote it down at this point. What would they what is what is crystal-clear is it. They pass the bipartisan. One i the democratic goes dead mentioned. Cinema couldn't be more clear unless they said that allowed. Yeah so like these only thing. We have to negotiate with is the fact that they want this. Bipartisan bill. well we're also trying to learn what joe manchin wants. Based on reports that either leak out from conversations he had with the chamber of commerce or a bunch of procter and gamble employees. How is this the best which could also like the most important conversation happened between mansion in cinema and biden late last week and the right like that's the only one that really matters when we you know we're getting some leaks out of that like cinema is saying she doesn't. She's against the prescription drug plan saying that she will kill the reconciliation bill. If the bipartisan infrastructure build is these are all reports were hearing out of that meeting but in Like i i don't know what you do if you're biden right because your ultimate goal is to get the package passed of course to get both bills passed and the only way to do that is to persuade cinema in mansion to change their mind or at least be willing to some concessions. And what's the best way to do that. Is it private discussions with them like this. Does he go public at some point. Obviously he's obviously like speaking out publicly against mentioned in cinemas not necessarily going to change their minds. I mean bind mistress. Feel like he's in like some crazy alternate reality. He's fighting with democrats to support a proposal to let medicare negotiate for lower prescription drug prices that polls ninety percent approval more popular. It will propose. Now save the country money and they oppose that. I mean that's why i think at some point. You have to decide whether or not you're gonna go down showing people that you fought as hard as you could for the priorities right. There is a majority in this country. Democrats independents some republicans. Who are supportive of joe. Biden's agenda here. And i think he probably has to start picking a fight like and show people that he is willing to fight for that majority and that agenda and fight against you know. I don't think saying that. You're gonna fight against joe mentioned curzon cinemas necessarily going to be all that effective even though it might be satisfying but fight against drug companies tack. Wealthy tax. cheats Oil companies right like insurance companies all the special interests that are blocking your agenda like he's got kind of show that fight even as i think. There are a lot of negotiations going behind the scenes because right now if he doesn't if he doesn't get out there more and start fighting for this it looks like he is going to be buffeted by forces beyond his control and that's not a great place to be. We started by talking about this narrative. That's forming about this sort of rough couple of of weeks months for joe biden and i do think that like one of the frustrating aspects of the way politics discusses like you would like to believe that the role of the political media would be to tease out The places where joe biden has agency versus the places where he doesn't like my question is well. What's within his control. And what isn't right like you would like the idea being like. Hey a bunch of things that are happening some are good some are bad. There's been a lot of bad news. Here's how joe biden is responsible. Here's how he isn't here's what he can do. Here's what he can. Of course it doesn't happen when bad things happen. They are bad politics. They are bad for joe biden. Then when he says things like the reason we have Have a a a a a fourth wave is because of the unvaccinated republican policies that is cast as laying blame as opposed to simply explaining reality. The place where joe biden can make. The biggest difference is getting these negotiations done. This is where he can figure. This is where his power is figuring out a way to find some some path by which we passed. Both this bipartisan infrastructure. Bill and this democratic only bill. And that's where his power lies in the long term to kind of get out of this morass. Yeah i mean the problem. Is that the washington law these reporters. They only care about winning and losing and if he wins in that he gets these bills passed then that changes in errative and if he loses. Then he's going to be a loser right like that's that's all. They care about. Not having a lot of good news days not a good news. As i mean talking about things within his control you know his polling numbers of barely improved since afghanistan. There was a fox news. Poll out over the weekend again. We always say this news. Eight good pollster. It's different than the news outfit They have him at fifty forty nine which is better than a lot of other polls but when you look under the hood. They're you know why people like him. Kovic twenty five percent general positive feeling nineteen percent not trump fifteen percent empathy and behavior nine percent. Why people disapprove incompetence. Poor leadership is number. One at two percent then afghanistan's still at nineteen percent. General dislike is thirteen percent. that's republicans than economy covert and border right after that. The other interesting is like characteristics about him his mental soundness for office and His honesty have basically been unchanged selected. So it's not even though that republicans like to calm the rotting writing bag of oatmeal. It's not about mental centers but cares about people like you and strongly have taken big hits. And i think that's part of it like things are you. Don't want to get point. Seems everything is beyond your control. And you're just sitting there watching it happen in cares people like you like go out there and fight for the the agenda. They pulled the pulled. The bill the reconciliation bill. And they did what we don't like to do which is give the three point five trillion dollar price tag fifty six thirty nine percent in support even with the three point five trillion dollar price tag attack fox news did and they got they got a majority. They got more people liking the building. They like joe biden and they like the mandates that for vaccines someone print out the poll and give it to joe manchin line and and let about politics. And i'm boosters you know what joe like having the job out there i these things these nerds are fucking wrong. Everybody get a blister or just start attacking the french outfit. Lean in lean into this is where trump really had a advantage 'cause they would just lean into these jingoistic american response to anyone..

"Did not set out to become a virtuoso improviser on guitar. He went from togo senegal to study law in nineteen sixty six and picked up the guitar to make some extra money. The instrument came naturally and soon he was sitting in with the house. Band at one of dakar's famous nightspots. The miami club got offered a solo gig. One thing led to another and his partners in the house. Band started their own ensemble orchestra baobab. They offered bartolini. It so the job as lead guitarist baobab became world-famous virtual ambassadors for senegal. But i decided never forgot his home of togo where he returned to not just to live but to continue his practice as a lawyer. A successful musician who kept his day job. World stages one day contracts divorces the next we pay homage today to bartolini at isa with one of his smoldering guitar. Solos this is old mummy. The recently late guitarist bartolini atty so taking his solo there with his ensemble orchestra baobab from senegal. You are listening to the world. Germans head to the polls this weekend where the far right is stealing a page from the trump playbook claiming vote tampering with no proof there were even talks about dominion voting system. Who's supposedly changed voice. Sounds familiar one glaring problem with the machine. Tampering claim in germany. Germans vote on paper. That's still ahead here on the world. I'm marco werman you're with the world we're a co production of gbh boston npr rex. If there are some angry exchanges on the sidelines of the un general assembly meeting in new york. This week don't be surprised. I'm thinking specifically the diplomatic fallout between the us and its oldest ally on friday. France recalled his ambassadors from the us and australia. This followed an announcement from the two countries and the united kingdom that the three signed a new indo pacific security pact and excluded the french. It's the first time. France has ever recalled its ambassador from washington. The world's europe correspondent orla berry joins me now so the french are angry. Not least because security deal meant that a french australian deal on submarines was scrapped. How serious well it depends on. Who you talk to marco. Certainly the french are in short of using superlatives to describe how badly they feel that they've been treated. We sold the french foreign minister saying last week the move was stabbed in the back and the kind of behavior you would expect from president trump then over the weekend at the same foreign ministers eve lettera. He was on french tv and saying that france had met repeatedly with representatives from the us. Australia in the last few months including anthony lincoln and joe biden and no one reads word of this and he said this is why we had to take the action that we did you muscle. Upc do you measure the confused suicide. there's been alive. There's been a major breach of trump's there's been contempt so it's not okay between us. It's not okay. He said but white house officials are today being quoted as saying that they expect to relations will improve and they expect the french ambassador to the us to return to his role within week. And we do know. The president biden and emmanuel macron are due to me are due to speak. I should say on the phone later this week. And the french are at pains to point out that it was the us who asked for the coal to be made so if france recalled ambassadors from the us. Australia wine britain while the way the french applying language. That britain is insignificant in all of this the same french. Foreign minister johnny. Bolivia said a great britain is a bit of a fifth wheel on the courage as he reporters and the bars. Johnson is just happy to be along for the ride. We just the snow but breaking because britain has been quite intent on repositioning itself on the global stage following brexit. This alliance a seen to be a reflective of that. I should say the french have taken one form of action against the uk..
