it came up at the apec summit in japan from where artie's tests are a silly reports. there was a first talk at the a second day of the summit and yes at the top of the agenda on the table is the ratification of the new start treaty now a president obama had there reiterated his commitment to the russian president that he is going to make sure that the treaty gets done at the lame duck session of the u.s. congress i reiterated my commitment to go start tweeting. during the lame duck session. or already this would reduce the nuclear long range missiles of the two countries by thirty percent it and it would allow the two countries to check on the stockpiles of each other two presidents brought this up today but they said that they will hammer out the details of the nato summit upcoming nato summit next week in this that we believe that russia nature of relations have improved it's beneficial for the sides right now working on a number of issues including the so-called european anti missile shield with
exchange ideas as to what could be done here and will discuss this at the summit apart from that we've been working together in a productive way and will continue to do so this being the apec summit trade and economy is a very important topic at the year two presidents discuss the ascension of russia to the world trade organization the bid of russia to join the w t oh no president obama has said that russia has the full support of the u.s. and he said actually said the russia the longs that w.q. you spoke of with the russian side they said that they expected this to happen at the earliest this spring two thousand and eleven. recently we've made serious progress in terms of russia's decision to this is an achievement by the american president and his team who lived up to the agreements reached during my visit to washington i hope this process will continue and brush it will soon access the.
positive results are that of the start treaty ratification so it is very important that this is making ahead. the progress and commitment is coming from the us a president on this matter. america's chief negotiator for the original start treaty in one thousand nine hundred one warns against letting the new deal with the rich but says it's a crucial turning point right now on the not ratifying it would send the wrong signal to the world us russian arms control is a critical part or critical component of dissuading other members of the international community to not go nuclear bomb and if we can't get a modest arms control agreement ratified are we giving talking points to augmentin a shot in tehran what impact are we having on on pakistan. on india and on other would be nuclear powers in the in the greater middle east it
has to be viewed as a as a massive setback in what i consider to be the kind of fundamental security problem of our of our day which is the spread of nuclear weapons to fragile we and sometimes rogue states and potentially on to terrorists and finally i'll just simply say this i don't think frankly that the reset policy can survive the non ratification of start if we can't ratify this treaty we are going to send a signal of cum i believe of almost total incompetence to the rest of the international community. well it was the fringe meetings between individual nations would seem to seal most of the progress of the asia pacific summit the only the main result being committed to free trade in the final declaration the countries agreed not to introduce any new trade barriers over the next three years it mirrors
this week's earlier g twenty summit in seoul where leaders agreed that a cut of the seawall wouldn't help crisis recovery but then failed to adopt any action plan and the snow reports a lot of the story this week. the world after the war the weapon currency. the fallout trade imbalance the world's paying i mean the world is paying the price for the asset bubbles that are being blown throughout the emerging markets and this high stakes battle for global exchanges it's china versus the u.s. on the western front the fed pumping six hundred billion bucks into the american economy the valuing the dollar while slamming china for not readily revaluing if you want on the eastern front the chinese position is well you're depreciating the dollar why should we really value the removal of the chinese currency which the us keeps on insisting on so it's really a standoff one that smacks of double standards it's absolutely true that the united
states of late has made don't mess to clean self-serving policy that was shortsighted and that did not consider the rest of the world and this set up the sole summit but despite global outrage with u.s. fiscal policy they got more of a high level silent treatment than any kind of fight right now it's the world against the united states and in terms of an agreement to deal with the currency war nuns going to happen there is no interest coming from china or germany the two other key players to solve this problem not interested or protecting interest. and that was before the session even started obama might have guessed there would be no compromising china wasn't budging. in germany an export giant defends its right not to surrender its strength by spending more abroad to appease u.s. calls to help economic recovery much of europe seems to be sitting back and watching how this will all play out no one is willing to budge on the fundamentals
not china not germany not the united states most certainly the group also agreed to develop early warning indicators to prevent economic turmoil but the question now is that enough to prevent this cast class from getting out of control and he's now a r t from seoul south korea. the us had that wanted to use the g twenty to pressure china but ended up having to explain his own actions instead that's what leading global currency. go to mommy told us in the week the us was really looking for the g twenty to be a forum to continue to pressure china and to have you know more unified front against china asian currencies current account surplus countries. from from the rest of the world and what it actually ended up turning into was that the u.s. had to go in there and do the tables were turned that the u.s. actually had to explain its own behavior to
a whole host of countries and the chinese i think were pretty adept at turning this around and there were a lot of other countries who didn't mind actually turning the tables a little bit on the us and saying ok well why don't you guys explain what you're doing with with the fed before your currency before you start kind of throwing stones at us. below shortages of opinions on george w. bush's presidency but in a few minutes on the program tonight we look at what the man himself has to say about his tenure confessions and denials the was his regrets over invading iraq to justify torture methods that's ahead plus. first time going into muslim beliefs. i got beat up why a growing hatred of christians is the one thing israel's hardline muslims and jews agree on the victims of violence told their story in a few minutes on this channel. the u.s. is desperately trying to revive the stalled mideast peace talks by entice saying
israel to extend its construction moratorium in occupied palestinian territories washington put on the table twenty two stealth fighter jets worth three billion dollars and a pledge to fight any international resolutions against israel in exchange it wants israel to halt construction in the west bank for three months with the u.s. promise not to ask to prolong it any further but the students though are criticizing that plan saying the proposed freeze will not apply to east jerusalem recent round of u.s. brokered peace talks became stuck just three weeks after they began after israel reaffirmed its commitment to continue building settlements in palestinian areas spoke to she's from the group representing jewish settlements she says obama is just trying to mend his reputation after his recent electoral hammering. it's an interesting fact after obama's mid-term loss where he sees that americans are very upset with his domestic policy and it doesn't look like it's going to get better anytime soon then he's got to go off shore as it were and figure out how to make
some kind of success of his of his regime of his presidency somewhere else and that's where we are right now. after years of official denial the e.u. finally taking action over claims of organ trafficking in kosovo and at least seven people including a high ranking health official have been charged with luring foreign nationals to remove their kidneys for transplant one suspects linked to the kosovo liberation army which is accused of selling the body parts of captured serbs during the yugoslav war r.t. sara firth investigates in the week. it was a war with a legacy of atrocities among the more shocking claims the alleged murders and harvesting of the organs of serbian war prisoners by members of the cause of a liberation army it's alleged to have happened in a place that became known as the yellow house in one thousand nine hundred nineteen after the military technical agreement was signed q four two forces promise to
secure the safety of all people living in kosovo regardless of their ethnicity but after the serbian forces left ninety percent of the kidnappings happened the allegations were made in a book by former u.n. war crimes prosecutor carla del ponte say but the case never made it to courts because of a lack of evidence now they returned to the public attention in the wake of an investigation into another organ trafficking case in kosovo. focused on the private clinic medical. the indictment relating to the medical cases currently with the pristina district court. we're waiting. confirmation hearing what we can say is that the two indictments were filed on fifteenth of october and there are five defendants charged with very various. organized crime illegal trafficking of. misuse of
public office there are also charges of wrong for use of the medical profession. although it's not yet officially been made public the indictment has been leaks the group are accused of removing the organs of people's poor they have been persuaded by the lure of money being offered around twenty thousand dollars for a kidney part of the leaked documents seen by a dirty also reveals that many of these people were never paid r.t. discovered that two days he had been indicted and had been working at medicaid before it closed and now working at private clinic medical just next door to the place they're accused of having performed the illegal operations so we went to confront your medical. we just tried to speak to america and they want to talk to us who are asking them about the employees who are supposedly still working there
despite having been involved in the medical case piers ago where that were shut down you can see the proximity is extremely close another of the men indicted in the medical case has possible links to yellow house after a war crimes tribunal witness claimed he was at the house the new investigation that painful memories for those who are still trying to discover the truth about what really happened in the yellow house case and where their missing family members are now. after the war me myself my husband and our three children were living in carson he went out one day and was taken away for questioning he never came back the scars of cause of a's past still evident today and there are concerns that cause a very is becoming an easy breeding ground for organized crime those who still wonder how their family members suffered see the truth of what happened cannot be allowed to remain buried sara furthur r.t.

revealed that the ten russian agents were sold out by their own boss a russian newspaper named him as colonel shaffer cough who's now apparently under f.b.i. protection. that summer spy story between the u.s. and russia just a few months after dropping out of headlines around the world the biggest spy scandal between moscow and washington since the cold war iraq is back with the drama of this whole situation is that the agents were turned in by their boss. he's been named as colonel suitable cool for allegedly headed the american department of russia's foreign intelligence service neither his first name or photograph have been found to journalists from the moscow based committed news people who've held their own investigation claiming he is behind blowing his colleagues cover in the united states. everyone we spoke to agreed that this was the biggest failure in the history of the foreign intelligence service some of the agents worked undercover for decades and all were given away just like wholesale. their findings have been
confirmed by the president on friday dmitry medvedev said he knew who the trader was from the thursday of the scandal it was june when american authorities announced the captured ten people suspected of being russian secret agents all were found guilty by a u.s. court and deported in exchange for four men serving time in russia themselves convicted of being foreign spies it was never going to stay out of the news for long the story instantly made headlines and especially since the russian president's first official trip to the u.s. had just come to an end it's thought kernel to back off russia to the united states just a few days before the meeting in the visit and according to some reports a few months before that he was offered a promotion at work which could have seen him subjected to a lie detector test and vet some believe he's why he we jetted the job offer instead he turned the other way way turning in his associates the media quickly
found its favorite among the group of deported agents young rich and beautiful anna chapman was deemed the russian james bond girl but did see flashes draw focus away from the. we'll super agent in the group mikail which in course was still in the shadows just as he had been for the past four decades. that's what is true this is an amazing story it doesn't only have a trailer but a true hero as well so to absolute opposites i'm talking about with some coffee and he's fantastic story. he left the soviet union in the one nine hundred sixty s. first to spin then to south america working as a photographer he eventually married and moved to the us changing his name to one it said he continues we denied being a russian agent and two presented secret documents that he then revealed his true identity but intelligence experts seen naming and shaming russian operatives was probably not the prime target. that. was probably a u.s.
agent for a long time him self and i'm sure this whole story was instigated by the american secret service the two presidents are working to restart relations and some people are obviously against the timing of this scandal perfectly it puts another name in the frame for the russian intelligence service that's still trying to establish how a massive decades long secret operation could fall port so easily seemingly at the hands of one man you've got this going on moscow. george w. bush broke his silence on his turbulent presidency this week his newly published seem to defend the most controversial decisions of his time in office and confessing to some of the blunders which sealed his reputation two in the book decision points bush acknowledges what he calls a sickening feeling when he authorized the u.s. invasion of iraq based on false intelligence however bush justifies the use of waterboarding terror suspects as a legitimate form of interrogation which in his view was useful in breaking up tell
applause the former cia officer revel governor believes that by justifying talk show which is why it has got caught up in weber. well number one it saved no lies in itself is the big lie the proof is in the putting torture creates more terrorists secondly it could ever be justified torture is one of those techniques or one of those things that is always intrinsically. wrong just like slavery or like rape or genocide all was always wrong what george bush is saying is that some lawyers that he hired to give him the correct answer said you know you could go ahead and waterboard people waterboarding being universally recognized everywhere but in the white house as torture is you don't get to disengage psychologically from a dependency such as on alcohol without help this business about the almighty
intervening and his turning himself over to the almighty is cynical in the extreme he needed professional help and when he listen to the almighty tell him to invade iraq well that's where it gets really ridiculous it's not the almighty that i know about. thoughts there a former cia officer ray mcgovern talking to us on our t.v. of generations the u.s. is considered itself an example for others to follow and in the next hour of the program tonight we asked people stateside where they think the real power now lie. this is america and everybody who is looked up to us but how much longer will the president gave his opinion new york about who wield influence in today's world that's coming up. now the big story we brought you from the wig britain saw its biggest show of anger yet against the massive cuts the country faces to plug its debt this week tens of thousands of students descended on london against plans to
trouble the college fees that burned banners broke windows and held objects and police more than fifty rested the harsh budget cuts coincide the dispute over paying to run the european union which is in line to get even more money from member states next year i spoke to david campbell bannerman in the week he's british member of the european parliament he told me why you think britain would be better off spending the money back home. when you look at where the money is going i mean the m.e.p. expenses account has gone up by eighty five percent that's for entertainment you're getting film prizes there's money going on the hunting as states and private golf clubs you know it's a huge waste of money there's no excuse for any increase in the budget in fact it should be out so we can as boasted about this super nine percent increase as being great cut relative to six percent that's what the european parliament here wanted a six percent increase which is outrageous really but to be honest this is not true
it hasn't actually been agreed it's no it's called is only by the actual chief negotiator here the every piece of the power but he has called this three point nine percent claim as being dishonest and the president of european union says it's a kenyan not a decision so me to be honest we don't know where we are at the budget could be far more than two point nine percent it could go up towards six percent in theory so we really are left in limbo here but there's no excuse for this kind of increase. british david campbell bannerman on where britain's spending as he sees it could be better used. israel is plagued by religious conflict but it's not always between jews and muslims they appear to have united against what they see now as a common threat targeting christians because of their faith as artie's paulus leader found out violence is on the rise things of david ortiz lives dangerously a christian pastor among religious jews in the west bank city of i will he's
received death threats for trying to convert jews and muslims to his faith my first time going into a muslim village. i got beat up we were giving our bibles someone hated ortiz enough to drop off a package at his house thinking it had a candy inside his fifteen year old son opened it the pipe bomb nearly killed him in the blew him through the kitchen. made a hole. in this choice most of the thrusts were in this way but the back fire the steroid the refrigerator everything back it took three years for israeli police to catch the perpetrator a religious jew jack title who lived in a nearby israeli settlement he'd already killed two arabs basis is very proud. he began a favor by trying to cut off. across the west bank the story for palestinian christians is as bleak and the threat comes from both extremists jews and muslims
bethlehem the believed birthplace of christ once boasted a population of eighty five percent christian today less than ten percent live here this woman is afraid to show her face she used to go to mantra square and teach about jesus but all that ended after her house was nearly burned down i didn't feel like i belong to this nice anymore i feel like i'm staying to give an opportunity she says she wouldn't think twice about leaving the explosion of muslims. you know you feel you feel controlling everywhere every thing my granddaughter had to memorize. but tusker abu sada ignores the threats he's one of a growing number of muslims who converted to christianity in recent years one hour as a fighter with arafat i hated christians just as much as i hated jews i was going on around your i'm looking for their own through anger and into their homes or putting
out their cars because i believed christians are spies. for christianity can search alongside islam and judaism here these two palestinian brothers have no problem reconciling the christian faith with living in a jewish state they volunteered to join the country's army saying they feel as israeli as the jewish and arab counterparts. everything i have for this because in the end this is my country but it's not what counts it's problems. a little bit of each time i go home in uniform someone will call it me traitor and things like that it doesn't influence me. but in recent months attacks against christians in christian science have increased at the beginning of november this hundred year old church was burned by right wing israelis who broke some of the windows and threw molotov cocktails inside it's no wonder that christians here are feeling under fire
