5:30 am
molly: this is france 24. time for 60 minutes live around the world. these are the headlines. the european commission calls for eu reform made by the british prime minister, saying they are highly problematic. this as david cameron delivered his wish list, saying it is the price eu leaders must pay if britain stays in the block. the turkish president says he wants to put a new constitution
5:31 am
in place. this, as the eu accuses turkey of black -- backsliding on human rights. agencyld anti-doping suspends the accreditation of testing lab. the latest on the report that could bar russian athletics from the olympics next year. we will hear from the boss of airline easyjet, as the low-cost carrier celebrates its 20th birthday. in the cop 21 conference paris is just 20 days away. we will talk to india's environment minister. that, and more on the way, but first, our top story. british prime minister david cameron has said the eu his wish list of how he wants to reform
5:32 am
the european union. european council president dino receipt of the letter with a tweet. they are spokesperson has called parts of the objective highly problematic, but cameron insists his demands are not mission impossible, but just the price eu leaders have to pay if they want to keep britain in the block. : the european union needs to change, become more competitive to compete with the rise of countries like india and china. it means to put those outside of the euro, like britain, onto a stable, long-term basis. it needs greater democratic accountability to national parliaments. above all, it needs, as i said at bloomberg, to operate with the flex ability of a network, not the rigidity of a block.
5:33 am
jeannie: let's talk more in detail about what mr. cameron had to say. eve: i have the famous letter david cameron sent to brussels outlining those reforms. it is just six pages. it has four proposals -- economic governments, competitiveness, sovereignty, and immigration -- there is only one word reiterated by prime minister david cameron -- flexibility. the you -- the u.k. wants from the european union. how much flexibility remains to be seen. the one area, the national question about the growing union, it is really hard. you need to get other -- the other 27 member states on board and in agreement.
5:34 am
another area that will be difficult to address is the migration area. britain is wanting to stem the amount of people. they want people who arrive to not get benefits for the first four years, and if anybody has not found work in the u.k. for six months, britain wants to be able to send them back. this strikes at a fundamental principle of the european union, it's freedom of movement. of the davidd cameron speech that that was less than plausible to brussels. jeannie: tell us about the reaction from brussels and other member states. eve: we are starting to get those reactions. to address ane increased role, so there might be wiggle room there, however a number of elements would be highly problematic, notably the migration question, from the right-wing euro-skeptic party in
5:35 am
britain. we have had statements that it is clear from the speech that he is not aiming for substantial eu reform and the campaign is active, saying there needs to be a lot more done. in orarguments, britain out, have already started. we heard this in cameron speech. why -- while he wants to push for changes, he wants to drive home that there are those benefiting from other countries in europe. eve, thank you. the turkish president is calling for a new constitution. that is in the wake of his party's win. our anchor and correspondent jasper mortimer explained. --per: beat in parliament
5:36 am
today, he is not stronger than he was in the parliamentary term that ran from 2011 until june. during that term, his legislators tried for about two years to agree on a new constitution. they want the constitutional subcommittee of the parliament, but the deputies, all parties represented, failed to reach consensus, and similarly, if he starts negotiation during this elementary term, i do not think he is going to get it. i think when he says that, he is basically trying to capitalize on the election victory 10 days ago, but polls have always shown that most turks do not want an executive presidency. they want the parliamentary system to continue. genie: that is jasper mortimer in turkey. accusedes as the eu has
5:37 am
turkey of backsliding on human rights and reforms. they say actions ran against european standards. more now from johannes hahn, european commissioner for enlargement. the lastner hahn: for year, significant shortcomings affected the independence, freedom of assembly, freedom of expression. in particular, there was increased pressure and intimidation of journalists and media outlets, as well as amendments to internet laws that allow blocking media content. reforms in these key areas are an independent -- indispensable priority in turkey's process, in turkey's own interest. on sayshe crime allegations that russian athletes were guilty of large-scale doping are groundless after anti-doping commission reports and corruption in russia was widespread.

5:44 am
sections of society. we are not part of the problem. [indiscernible] it is causing a temperature rise of .10 degrees, but we are suffering, and therefore climate justice is a must. genie: does india have a redline, sir? what if more well-developed nations do not reach an agreement -- is india ready to block over that? minister javadekar: we're not in the mindset of blocking anything. we facilitate. if there are any differences between groups, we will, with our own position. we are positive. we want paris to succeed. genie: as does everyone, i believe, sir. minister javadekar: because we
5:45 am
care for us. genie: yet india has set a target of opening one coal mine every month. can that be compatible to limit by twoclimate change degrees? minister javadekar: absolutely not, because our coal consumption is 1/5 per capita of development, and therefore what we are increasing -- our energy mix will be undergoing radical change from 2020 to 2030. we will have 40% nonfossil fuel , andity of our energy mix we can work even more aggressively. the issues of technology and finance are therefore important, but we will never say all consumption -- oil consumption is so much.

5:48 am
radical, but it is radical for a pre-seeding airline and our passengers love it. we are barely -- very appealing to business passengers. we do not have an extra class, but they can be on and off quickly, they have fast track security. are all things that do not affect giving low fares because it does not affect the model. that is how we have changed the airline and that is what the success of easyjet will be dealt on over the next 10 years. stephen: ryanair's michael o'leary has promised more competition with easyjet on your route. are you worried about that at all? ms. mccall: we are used to competition. we have started competing with airlines that nobody thought easyjet could come up against. we have competed successfully. actually, we thrive on competition. pioneering, energetic

24. it is now time for the press review. florence with us. scandal --ith the the world anti-doping agency released a report on allegations of doping cover up extortion in russian athletics. >> right. a huge story. interesting to look at how the russian media is covering it. for now, they are being factual. i pulled out an article from russia's today website. are calling for russian athletes to be and over these doping allegations. so, a lot is at play. essentially, team russia could be banned from olympic games for instance, next year. what is interesting, another russian paper says that, ashley, it was just a matter of time before the scandal broke out. the situation had been festering for quite some time. the words athletic and doping were increasingly associated in
5:53 am
a russian context. genie: now, the french paper looks at how they carried out the investigation. florence: a fascinating report if you want to know on -- more on how this report was written. in depression -- independent sevension is focused on countries including russia and carried out the investigation over a six-month period. it says there were encrypted messages, witness protection, cyberattacks, secret meetings, and essentially a bunch of stuff that sounds like a spy novel. it is an interesting read. we have been talking about russia, but it does not just focus on russian at linux. it is all international athletics. florence: that is right, and it comes on the wake of other scandals in the cycling world and the fee for scandal. -- fifa scandal.
5:54 am
it is a sad day in general. the name of world athletics has been soiled. au cannot say it smells like scandal. it stinks, according to "le parisienne." the belgian paper, in his report is says this dizzying, nauseating, but do not pretend to be surprised. essentially, the world of sports by become ganged-greened money, and hiding the truth is a booming business. the british paper says that we are seeing is just the tip of the iceberg. sadly, it seems far too many people are involved in what it calls this race toward the bottom, a race that is a losing race. genie: just yesterday, catalonia third parliament -- catalonia's permit drafted a plan to gain
