hello this is r.t. it's ten pm here in moscow now i'm kevin zero in with the top stories for you. and first the arctic some tops of natural wealth is a source of great some taishan for the countries surrounding the cup millions of barrels of oil lie beneath the sea in the arctic nations are keen to secure their share indeed some of the finest scientific minds of now gathered in moscow than to make sure of a different kind of cold war that doesn't break out he's. fifty billion tons of oil one thousand trillion cubic feet of gas that's enough to supply the internal world for more than a few years and it's just an estimate of what's hidden in the arctic seabed. the underwater riches of the north pole are a temptation for the five arctic states russia the us canada norway and denmark but how does one determine who gets the bigger slice of the pie so we're going to today
we really need a national geography a geography that would help us pursue our national interests. the territorial dispute tottered on the brink of conflict for years but lately they need to fight it out seem to fade away suddenly everybody is talking about the vast amount of riches on the sea floor and and how nations will carve up the region for themselves in the arctic states the coastal states and take particular i've also talked about their stewardship responsibility the stewardship is in the interest of all mankind so at the same time there are expressions of national interest there are expressions of common interest and so really the balance is one of of achieving national interests and common interests not just for the card states themselves but for the world as a whole the north pole glitters with possibilities and it's not just the arctic states that feel the pull of their region i was in the arctic. you know i was only five of the two thousand and six in the north pole and then also last year we
all met with the arctic of the arctic region represents a very important part of the world in a very fragile. environment a fragile ecosystem that we need to protect the strategic interests in the arctic is global once this northernmost part of the world is better explored there are only a few minor points where there are disputes most of this is undisputed sovereign territory there's a number of companies and i think in europe and i would like germany back you know i think kingdom and china and all those who are also very it's now in the arctic ocean some recourse of the shipping not because of the resources because of the potential for making a shorter route from through your giving up the arctic is like walking on thin ice and the chance to tread lightly and work out existing differences is welcomed by all. this is as close as most people will ever come to the arctic but its unique
nature and vast natural resources are more than enough to entice one and all those attending the forum hope the enticement will help bridge differences keeping everybody on the same pole. catherine as our. spoke to nikita of selling coffees and arctic expertise just returned from the planet's northernmost region he told me the precautions must be taken to protect its unique wildlife but the situation is that we can just see the changes from the arctic and. a few of the scheme as a save the changes than the climate changes which are impacting wildlife particular most vulnerable spaces like polar bears you know if we're careful and they for a minute show that david is properly it's ok by the political will of course when we work in our field would take precautions but that's political decision to make
this a rule that nothing is done that could really damage the arctic environment too much damage has already been done by previous exploration of the arctic and we're already destroyed a lot of. pollutant a lot and then we have to invest huge money just to clean this. about this story from the president of iceland on a full ragnor he told r.t. that russia made a positive step in launching negotiations by planting a flag in the arctic seabed three years ago. i had been trying for ten years still speak about the arctic issues to people in europe in the united states and elsewhere and there was very little interest but suddenly where the russians put the flag of the bottom of the article shut everybody woke up but i realized times had the right so i think when we look back to east of warsaw our welcomed opening court to the rest of the world that now we need to come together and and create
a successful framework for corporation. and just let you know you can watch the full interview with the president of iceland in our spotlight program throughout the day on thursday here in r.t. . president to be preventive zoltan a ban on the supply of russian advanced and defense missile systems to around moscow says it shelved the sales because the missiles fall under the latest u.n. sanctions on to round out his natal enough to cover a port. i mean people step russia is not anymore going to sell its ass three hundred and two missile defense systems to iran i do to the recency imposed by the u.n. security council sanctions against the country's nuclear program and the extensions suggest that any sale of weapons to limited country including military planes
that we have a stance in accordance a missile defense shield now then you shouldn't be moved into on the signs back in two thousand and seven when launches we still fight that has been done but. to the countries now they didn't have visitors but according to bush's people doubt whether this contract to be canceled altogether will depend on iran's actions we're still waiting to see here runs on this decision over the russian authorities but russia has already once was food delivery will best thing hundred missiles to iran last winter and that the decision was not at all welcomes in iran so it is unlikely that it will be welcomed at this time but i shouldn't have done what they did here these. recent be they built together a nuclear plant the first nuclear front in iran in the physical shares so it doesn't look like there's somewhat ration between the two countries and that we're
so we still have you are hear from iranian authorities that talking over cova it goes well from the moscow based institute of world economy and international relations says that russia's decision to stop selling missiles to iran will be a serious blow to iran's defense capabilities no. iran is totally dependent on a contract on its contract with most call if it wants to provide security for its airspace and 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 those are launched baird's it also read our facilities and so on is the state of the art equipment and international experts all agree to that i guess that will affect their relations with current us with the judge regime in iran but i think the iranian authorities have to understand the message the message from international community here they have to change something in the attitude towards the outer world and they have to think twice before going on with their nuclear program
there's been increasing speculation surrounding the possibility of israel and the us bombing nuclear sites in iran and later on this channel people of eleanor's cross-talk guess discuss whether to run poses a threat to its neighbors or whether such an attack is in fact being prepared. anything in iran is negative according to the united states only thing that iran has yet to be accused of by the united states is global warming and perhaps that will come up later on but i think what is more important is anything to do with iran taking hostages with iran killing marines in lebanon with marines attacking military views and how do you. think you're going to. hear a war out. of the bed and that's why they have a problem with the no i think i think i think you have a problem with your history classes in the united states iranian american relations didn't begin with the embassy takeover they began with the united states
overthrowing the national government in iran through a coup to installing a puppet shar and then draining the country's resources for decades. across talk on r.t. in just over an hour's time. the u.s. has vowed to expand cooperation with russia on missile defense global security and conventional limits in europe these were discussed at the russian nato council on the sidelines of the u.n. summit in new york he's honest in situ and it brings us more the major issues of the talks. earlier today a meeting of russian nato council took place here in new york ahead of us summits being planned for november in lisbon the issues were that were discussed at this meeting were the stepping up of the fight against drug trafficking in afghanistan issues of security in europe as well as missile defense as we know in the last couple of days the secretary general of nato has really been calling for and
pushing for the possibility of cooperation and a joint project between russia and nato when it comes to missile defense and so far it however he told the press earlier today that no details have been worked out no specifics have been discussed but this is something that nato hopes can be done in the nearest future in these nearest talks now russian nato continue to disagree on issues of georgia and moldova and as we know of course that russia and nato have had a sort of difficult relationship because of the war back in two thousand and eight and because of the issue of nato eastward expansion but now we're hearing today in new york from the secretary general of nato that he hopes that these ties between the alliance and russia can become closer and this is what he told the media the joint review of the twenty first century common security challenges. call peroration on afghanistan. more practical cooperation in try to cherish all
piracy hopefully from my point of view as star controllers corporation cherry tauriel defense today corporation with russia in addressing these challenges is no longer just an opportunity to build a better relationship with russia it has become a necessity if we want to be effective in preserving our common security and that is the charlotte from beijing from which we can and will move forward now another important event taking place today here in new york is of course the meeting of the five permanent members of the. cuti council plus germany where it is being planned to assess whether or not the same sions that were imposed by the security council the fourth round of sanctions imposed on iran this june whether or not they have been effective and whether the international community these six countries should consider additional steps to make sure that iran hears the voice of the international community but it's important that the russian foreign minister
earlier sergei lavrov said that he feels that certain countries should not be considering additional economic steps when it comes to certain developing nations he didn't name any names but drawing the lines there was clear that he was mentioning the united states and iran and of course we've been seeing only mixed signals from iran as of now iran has been seeing that war is a possibility if the united states attacks its uranium enrichment facilities but iran has also said that the possibility of doors being open is still there. is a quick break ahead but coming up in the program some a love affair with india should be fighting for love as we report find a vigilante group using young couples persecution.
