it's. the way that this conflict is ruining our personal lives if we cannot a relationship that we cannot be just human being. by deception lands in israeli arab man in prison after he persuades a woman to have sex with him by saying he's jewish. and the moscow court delays a ruling on the accused of racist hate crimes including murder in extremis psychiatric tests carried out. live from our studios here in central moscow this is r t with twenty four hours a day the un's highest court has ruled as unilateral declaration of independence from serbia over two years ago did not violate international law the court said there was no article which prevents declarations of sovereignty decision which is a rejection of
2:01 pm
a claim by serbia is non-binding because of his ethnic albanian majority declared independence from belgrade in february two thousand and eight after un brokered negotiations failed the us and most european nations recognize the move but serbia backed by russia and china called it a violation of its territorial integrity because of a previously been administered by the un following the nato bombing campaign against serbia in one thousand nine hundred nine when i'm now joined by. a foreign policy at a serbian public t.v. thanks very much indeed for joining us now that the hague ruling has no legal power so just how important is this. well what happened in the hague today it was very interesting because the court actually decided that the scope of their decision is much narrower than we thought. we saw this question as a question on whether costs or can be a sovereign state or not or whether it can bridge the sovereignty of serbia and the court decided that they will only give their opinion advisory opinion on the piece
2:02 pm
of paper that was drafted by a group of people sitting in the assembly of course of zero and that piece of paper according to their ruling is breach of the international law now what authorities in belgrade now say and what we now expect is that they have left this decision. about whether course all can be a sovereign state or not an independent state is left for the general assembly of the united nations and indeed i think that it is certain that the serbian authorities will now ask the question and refer the question to the. general assembly and the debate will continue there and it will be the decision or the general assembly that will change more things than this ruling we each isn't unimportant but it says less than we thought it would but why doesn't just
2:03 pm
move on rather than pursue further debate as you say and just simply accept his independence and just simply move on. well. you can ask any country in the world if someone trops off part of the country why they just don't agree with it and go along it's very easy as for moving along serbia is at the same time while trying to resolve the issue of course or moving along i know that people across the world can have the impression that all serbia ever does or deals with is the issue of course or but there are other things happening in serbia as well sure that's looting sorry to interrupt but moving on also implies perhaps even membership from many serbians point of view they want to have membership so by moving on perhaps and accepting cause of his independence that will pave the way to membership. well i'm
2:04 pm
sure that sooner or later because one of the requirements when you join the european union is that you have resolved all that there is a neighborhood issues and so on so i'm sure it will emerge sooner or later in this process. is the moment moving along and progress in india. and vast majority of the people in serbia supported the e.u. membership and serbia is in the process of the moment of unifying its market with the youth of the stabilization and association agreement which is now being ratified in the european parliament so things are happening with the e.u. this question will be addressed i'm sure at some point and that serbia can have what i think that can really serbia have one thing going for membership and still taking this really obstinate position over kosovo it surely it can't work like that
2:05 pm
and some people might say by taking this very strong position still despite the very painful past events that in fact this could spark even more violence in the region by. reaction to this latest decision about the independence. well of course. many things can lead to more violence you know. the only the only side that can create violence in. the moment are of course of all because they are controlling that their authority serbia does not but they're also going to have a lot yes it does claim that life is improving then the region obviously a lot of support from the u.s. and much of the e.u. in effect it has been a successful breakaway certainly from the point of the course of ns and as the deputy prime minister says it's the cause of ns will that this should happen and it has led to stability. yes well. the
2:06 pm
course of. deciding about their own lives and it is their free will and serbia in a way except that that free will and does more to i mean i'm not the spokes person of the government government but what i've what i've heard from from our government seems to me as if serbia does not want to rule over. and decide about their lives it only wants a minimum of sovereignty over that recognize the sovereignty does not imply serbian right to actually run the daily lives of course of all being aeons and serbia head in the past several different proposals on how to resolve this all of which were very quickly rejected by the big powers except for four for russia and china and there wasn't much room for for serbia to corporator and you go see
2:07 pm
a main mainly most of the time the issue on the table the issue of independence was you have to recognize the independence now the position may soften in belgrade should the balance of power shift in the general assembly of the united nations if in and now in the meanwhile because the general assembly will talk about this issue on the fifteenth of september and if by then a lot of other countries that have not yet recognized as an independent state do that. i think that serbia might find itself in a more difficult position to maintain tough position of the appreciate your not a government spokesman but it's good to hear your points of view on the matter thank you very much for joining us there from belgrade in serbia thanks. to other news now in israel an arab man has been sentenced to eighteen months for rape by deception tricked a woman to having sex with him by claiming to be jewish she plans to appeal the
2:08 pm
decision as artie's paula slim reports even couples who choose to have interfaith relationships face hostility. this jewish jerusalem suburb is surrounded by arab neighborhoods and far from cultivating a culture of tolerance vigilante style jewish patrol groups calling themselves fire for judaism stand watch outside the local shopping mall their mission to prevent arab men mixing with the local jewish girls the municipality has created a twenty four hour hotline where parents and friends can phone to rat on jewish girls breaking this to boot a specially trained team of counselors and psychologists is on standby to rescue them from war. it's important to save our traditions culture history and identity because without these who are we from my experience we can see that the chances for a healthy relationship between is really jewish woman and an arab man very very low it's because of the great differences between these two cultures. the most recent
2:09 pm
case involves an arab man who posed as a jewish bachelor a jewish woman agreed to have sex with him but after she found out he was an arab and not a jew she filed a police complaint the courts took the place so seriously that he's now being convicted of rape by deception and same tools to eighteen months and present the judge said he had an obligation to protect the public funds of the state of criminals who could know innocent victims but reactions to the verdict differ i think if the women want to do it it's dark lord a lot different it's our belief or more or because something negative usually do is girls don't know where they're guys. unless it's a choice you know. there should be a choice you didn't leave your choice but in prison is too much and this is the way that this is going to pick this is ruining our present arrives that we cannot have relationships that we cannot be just human being arabs make up a foot of israel's population but relationships between arabs and jews are rare

santagati don't come. welcome to business the results of european bank stress tests to friday evening have been looming over the markets the tests are intended to reassure investors of the ripple snus of banks by revealing their exposure to bits of capital adequacy earlier i spoke to paul michael senior foreign exchange strategist at h.s.b.c. bank in london and what he thought the result would be and what effect it might have on the markets a number of the european banks are going to go through this try to transparency argument to try and demonstrate to the market about who is going to be strong and who's going to be we can try to get a sense of how is the european banking system actually been holding up through this crisis so that's all tomorrow on this is what the key focus point is indeed going to be how is that going to potentially impact the markets. well i think with what
2:23 pm
we have to realize is that there's been another number of officials coming out over recent days suggesting that. the banks in respective countries seem to be in good shape in that they're going to pass these these stress tests there's been a couple of banks saying that they could possibly fail but perhaps the market already had a good feeling for this. those type of failure candidates i think really perhaps is going to line up to be somewhat of a nonevent i mean we will have to digest the overall news through the course of the weekend to try to get a feel of how much banks the european banks may need to recapitalize but in terms of it being a big market mover for the euro i'm a little bit skeptical at this at this juncture what will be the consequence is going to be we could. well if it did turn out to be pessimistic report in a somewhat surprising. i think at least from a currency perspective what you see happening is you see a flight to safety that is the likes of the year and probably the swiss franc would hold up quite well versus the euro you might even see the dollar actually trying to
2:24 pm
rally somewhat versus the euro as well so reversing some of the gains which we saw today but i think that the fact that it's coming out quite late tomorrow are scheduled to be then we're going to be in a bit of a holding pattern and it might not be until monday where we start to see a bigger reaction. let's have a look at those markets now russian it could seem to struggle for pessimism of the chairman of the u.s. federal reserve who warned that the prospects for the world's largest economy will course. most good rally in often in trade with the season ending. owner of the plant that suffered a terrorist ways they recovered early losses to edge into the black. now the profitability of russian business has increased eighty six percent in the first five months of this year compared to two thousand and nine the statistics service says the combined pretax profits in law companies climb to dollars working
