a good girl would. ever dream of killed in. the arctic ice breaker and moscow plays host to scientific top brass to provide a battle for middle resources. territory of dialogue for territorial disputes hundreds gather in moscow to decide the future of the north pole for details from the international arctic form stay with us. russia says it won't be selling its air defense missiles to iran. and according to bush's chief of staff to show the recent u.n. sanctions on iran. talks are gripping the big apple as world leaders brainstorm how to eradicate global poverty and ensure peace in the middle east.
you're watching r t coming to you live from the russian capital balkans in the program and also our top story the arctic's on tap natural wealth is a source of great temptation for the countries surrounding the icecap billions of barrels of oil lie beneath the sea and the arctic nations are keen to secure their sure now some of the finest scientific minds of gathered in moscow to make sure a different kind of cold war doesn't break out of a has more. all of the countries that have an interest in the stake in the arctic namely russia the united states canada and two scandinavian states all of them have a very big interest and of course all want a bigger piece of the pie that is the untapped seabed full of natural resources oil gas various minerals so the arctic is a very tempting piece but so far all of the sides that have a stake and have
a potential claim to all of their resources have agreed to work out their issues and differences calmly peacefully they have put forward their claims they're trying to work together to make sure that all. unpleasantries are avoided and that the matters are settled in a very diplomatic and civilized manner so despite the fact that the temptation is huge it seems that all parties involved really do want to make sure that the negotiations and the divvying up once it comes to that is actually fair and square and done by the book maintaining the fragile ecosystem that is the arctic and the north pole and trying to get and tap at all of the resources that lie underneath the ice and water without damaging the ecology and the system that exists there as it is and of course the arctic is already affected by a global warming so it's a very very difficult issue and one that has received
a lot of attention here which talk a little bit more about this we're joined live by this professor paul berkman from the university of cambridge thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us now as you're going to preserving the ecosystem of the arctic whilst getting at its resources seems to be like and it was possible to ask is it one of the inspirations of the ingenuity of humankind is that if we think that we can build it and so part of the strategy that we're identifying is a need to have resource development in a environmentally. damaging manner. how this mature. as is it is a question that technologies will help to address but there certainly are other issues associated with resources that are far more media and important to resolve in terms of promoting cooperation and venting conflict if we look at the problems that we face as a civilization. certainly on planetary scales and as well as regional scales the
time frame of the solution often is decades which means that it's impossible to envision any of the magic bullet that suddenly appears instantaneously and solves that problem once and forever so the solution to really our dialogues and russian geographic society has to be complemented for their vision and if she had a dialogue that will. that will support the type of cooperation and avoidance of conflict that is necessary to make the arctic a region that is used to the interests of all mankind faster better than thank you so much for a military many say it is walking on thin ice deciding the arctic future but everybody here certainly seems optimistic. our aslan's a president says moscow plays a key role in preventing the arctic from becoming a battleground for its natural wealth. because become one of the most crucial parts of the world both because of the energy resources that can be pumped
in the arctic because of climate change because of the opening up of the new sea to go therefore it is not important that we have constructive dialogue the whole ratio of russia issued by both my country all the countries of the arctic. is just and scientists to come to cooperate with russia in a very constructive way so this forum in my opinion is a very strong and positive six russia was so positive that effective corporation and they don't do. russia will not supply its advanced air defense missile systems to iran the chief of staff of the russian armed forces says moscow shelved the plan because the missiles fall under the latest u.n. sanctions on iran for more details that cross live to our natalee and novikov up there and that's all you have now moscow struck a deal with terrorism a few years ago on the delivery of these weapons now has that a deal been cancelled. well indeed according to the russian chief of staff russia
is not anymore going to sell its ass three hundred and i missed defense systems to iran juju the recently imposed by the u.n. security council sanctions against the country's nuclear program and them stanchions suggest that any sale weapons limiting the country including military airplanes three helicopters tanks and of course anti-missile defense shield now then usually given the most went to iran with signs back in two thousand and seven when the launches we just showed by that i mean hundreds to the country now they didn't have to be very fond of going to the government chief of staff whether this contract will be cancelled aid together will depend on iran's actions or how is a moscow's decision likely to affect russia or iran relations. well we're still waiting to hear how the rumor on in this decision of the russian authorities but
russia has already once was phoned the delivery or best thing hundred misfiled to iran last winter and said the decision was not at all welcomes in iran so it is unlikely that it will be welcomed at this time. so we still waiting to hear from you want to find out what they think about it but actually going out in front of me here these are all nuclear energy recently i think built together a nuclear plant the first nuclear plant in iran in the future will be shared so it doesn't look like there's a strong migration between the two countries and that fears that we still have to start here from hearing in the region. thank you very much for that that was the target novikov are bringing us the latest on russia's decision to stop selling air missile systems to iran and now for more on the fallout of russia's announcement i'm joined by igor hocknull from the a moscow based institute of world economy and international relations thank you
very much for joining us now it's been more than three months since the a sanctions against iran were adopted and why did it take a moscow so long announcing that it's stopping the sale of missiles to iran actually russian officials have announced from the very beginning right after the sanctions were imposed back three months ago in june that russia is going to fall all international regulations and international law and if those are the system as three hundred. falls under the sanctions it means it will not be shipped to iran before the situation changes either sanctions are lifted all the situation is usual in any other way russian prime minister was in report and said all right after the sanctions your impost actually today i. wanted to see here where there was a quotation of sergei lavrov so. the opposite seeing thing but actually that was a very short piece catch out of the interview that covered absolutely different
topic so russian officials have always been very prudent and have always followed the international line international community it has imposed of the fourth round of sanctions against iran it means no legal sales will ever take place before either the sanctions only have to it or the situation has changed in any other way so russian position has not changed russia full of international law ok now russia is planning to increase military cooperation with israel is this linked with today's announcement oh actually you know or there are a lot of speculations about vested interests or is there a lot b. or uranium lobby in russia actually russia has been called the ratings we are all one hundred contras selling its military gear and now russia is going to sell military gear to afghanistan russia is doing business with saudi arabia russia has a lot of multi-billion quantities these real. russian and israeli kompany is developed
for literature hardware and selling them to india you know so russian military industrial complex saw a large suv has links to almost all conscious all over the world and you know it's quite it's quite clear and reasonable to clearly vested interests i don't think there is any link between the current announcement and any kind of cooperation with israel but all of course israel cooperate or russia cooperates with israel as well as its called periods with hundreds of other countries ok well iran reportedly are already owns similar missiles a scene from other sources so how much is actually rely on the contract with moscow you know iran is totally dependent on on its contract with more score if it wants to provide security for its. for its space. you know there is no other way to get similar missiles but to purchase them from russia russian as
three hundred complex it's not only missiles launch pads it also read our facilities and so on is the state of the art equipment international experts all agree it's very it's perfect while protecting urban areas because it has a unique feature it's called mortar start and there's no other way to get this kind of complex but to purchase it from russia especially if iran wants to protect its airspace and in fancy its air defensive capabilities against all kind of targets those are planes supersonic jets of water crafts cruise missiles and even ballistic missiles at certain parts of their trajectories having said that he said that they were dependent now how likely will this decision of moscow to a stop the deliveries affect the relationship between the two countries i guess that will affect their relations with current or some of the judge regime in iran but you know russia and iran has been have been neighbors for centuries and the
relation. centuries ago so i think. the situation will change to sort of wait maybe the saying lifted maybe anything else changes then i think in the long run it will not affect russian iranian relations but i think that the iranian. have to understand the message the message from international community is they have to change something view their attitude towards the outer world and they have to think twice before go in on with their nuclear program all right thank you very much for your insight that was eaglehawk law from the moscow based institute of world economy and international relations and a coming up later in the program summer of lovers and summer fighters but in any other is are simply fighting for mark find out how we differ larger group are saving young couples from violence and persecution. longstanding pledges to eradicate world poverty and
hunger are focus at the u.n. summit in new york and also on the sidelines of the meeting the middle east peace quartet trying to encourage israelis and palestinians to make a breakthrough in relations the group of format after direct peace talks between the two sides last week with settlements and major stumbling block earlier and israeli security guards shot dead a palestinian man in contested east through celeb sparking riots israeli police fired tear gas to disperse the protesters and thus to see a true can now has more on the peace negotiations and the issues facing politicians at the u.n. summit. holding talks on the sidelines of the united nations general assembly the middle east peace quartet which consists of russia the united states the european union and the united nations has urged israel to extend its freeze on settlement construction in the west bank and gaza palestinians have said that israel can forget about direct talks if this moratorium is not extended and with these to go
before the deadline of the moratorium israel has already said it is refusing to extend this moratorium so now the clock is ticking and after being on and off and on and off again direct talks between the israelis and palestinians did not take place for as long as two years and actually took place for the first time in two years earlier this month now meanwhile the united nations millennium development goal summit has also been taking place back in the year two thousand world leaders have agreed on a set of eight targeted goals which they hope to meet by the year twenty fifteen and these include things like eradicating poverty and hunger in the world a very difficult task and so far results have been mixed especially considering the difficult economic situations that many countries are faced with right now and the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov was giving a speech at the summit he outlined that russia had donated as much as eight hundred million dollars. two developing nations in the last year alone an interesting and important point that he had means is that he calls upon countries to not try to ask
other nations to impose unilateral economic sanctions against other nations take a listen to what he had to say which is sometimes to resolve the issues in the un charter the world community has to resort to such measures like economic sanctions but it has long been agreed that it's necessary to observe the so-called humanitarian boundaries of the sanctions to prevent the negative influence on the people in the country social and economic development. we're concerned about the unilateral measures of restraint forcibly introduced by some states against developing countries exceeding in the u.n. security council chancellor. this practice contradicts the effects of the millennium development goals and has to be stored. now foreign minister sergei lavrov did not mention countries names but of course we know that the united states was pushing nations to impose unilateral economic sanctions against iran even after
the united nations security council had imposed a fourth round of sanctions against the country there have been a number of protests taking place in new york city the biggest one of them we're expecting will take place on thursday when mahmoud ahmadinejad addresses the one general assembly and many more speeches and events are taking place throughout the week among them a meeting of the five permanent members of the security council plus germany on iran and of course we will keep our viewers posted on all the latest details. and now to some other international news this hour at least ten people killed in an explosion in the town of mob out in northwestern iran about twenty others were injured it occurred during a military parade as the country marks the thirtieth anniversary of the beginning of the war with iraq a provincial governor believes that kurdish separatists are behind the attack. china has demanded that japan release the captain of a fishing boat who was detained in the east china sea the country's premier wen

and claims to have attracted one hundred forty thousand volunteers across india they have helped rescue many couples from death by forcing police to intervene. sanjay not the other young couple in love who ran away from their families against their marriage they had nowhere else. we made five complaints to the police but no one to count when i heard of the helpline i felt some who helped us right away and were staying in there see if. they're having a cent with. the help playing started following the recent upsurge in honor killings in northern india in some villages local councils that sentences against couples formatting outside their caste or within the same clan. parents should have forgotten they too were young at some
point they were also attracted to people in trying to fall in love not all were successful of course i think really take their frustration out on today's youngsters. anonymous a priority for the volunteers who have been targeted by angry relatives and the village councils the helpline operates from five secret locations in the capital and visitors are carefully screened. the work we do we have to do it quietly if anyone asks us our address we don't just give it to us we first ask them to reach a public spot and here our center we check to see whether he's a troublemaker who only want to assure that he needs help then we take him with. love can sometimes be a dangerous thing in india especially in rural communities but with the love commandos just a phone call away there's a blast a glimmer of hope for the many couples endangered by their feelings for each other
