11:04 am
pressure being exerted on the pilots from certain passengers to land the plane as soon as possible passes sensually pilot error was found to mostly be the cause but so many in poland refute those conclusions and say that more investigation needs to be done to the conditions of the airfield here in smolinski and also into the role of ground staff here and they have done more perhaps to prevent the plane from landing in such dense fog but the i.a.c. underlines that according to normal aviation law grounds do not have the rights to overrule a pilot who has stated his or has intention to land it still will conclude its own independent investigation into the causes of the crash and after asking for a six month extension we are expecting that independent investigation to deliver its final conclusion sometime in october. crash certainly had a strong impact on

11:08 am
see you even though the road map includes plans for reform it's not clear whether it also calls for gadhafi and his family to abandon. the way the political system in libya works is that visually god is no head of the state he's more of a formal figure or a moral leader as he likes to call himself in reality this man has built a giant power web which is wrapped around business and the government and is built on a circle of chosen people vols personally calls to be on their feet and his family . also propose a peace plan which was rejected by the opposition even. actions the deal did not. son importing them. we couldn't agree with the initiative because it didn't guarantee to get darby's entire family would leave without that guarantee negotiations are pointless if. the african union is delegation is now in the world

artie's course on of the lore and that has been on the story. we're seeing the deadline for this deal being resolved loom ever closer it's still first day the fourteenth of april that leaves just around about three days to get this all sorted out we're seeing various rumors coming to the fore most notably one in the financial times where sources say that he and potential partners could be preparing to buy out the russian shareholders stake in seeing k. b.p. now they may be going in and doing that together and it's a stake which could be worth up to thirty billion dollars now the various parties are desperate to have this situation resolved and in fact it's likely that we'll see more state intervention come during this week more pressure from the state which has been conspicuously absent in the days leading up to this also b.p. wants this solved because russia is one of the very few places that it can now go for new production growth its reputation is increasingly bad in the u.s. and it's not it really having it down graded and threats of

a new takeover so there's a lot to lose for all sides in a very short time in which to lose it it seems that stay on might be interested in having it state pulled out just because if it didn't then it would be left with essentially a dollars investment into the n.k.v.d. oil company that that essentially would have no growth potential if this deal did indeed go ahead although having said that they are is in a very strong position thanks to these rulings by the operation court but we seem to know from standard and poor's things it makes more sense for b.p. to change b.p. instead of pine for the written. we think it is quite unlikely and i think that probably has made it clear that he wants to try to get this deal through in a manner that's acceptable to all parties involved now this is a deal that will be very beneficial for russia it's a deal that's beneficial for b.p. and the people standing in the way are pinned k b p on the contrary people here in
11:25 am
london are saying wait a minute why should they buy in k b p maybe b.p. should sell its share on p. and k b p the problem is who would buy one of them they are proving to be a very difficult partner so i doubt there will be many offers nevertheless there is still another option it will be a harsh option for b.p. and i'm sure a lot of shareholders would not approve of it but it will secure the long term of b.p. it will allow it to go forward with a deal to start on a clean slate it's a big chunk he represented thirty six percent of two thousand and ten production and with the gulf of mexico down it would be a big hit but it also a new renewed repeat all the larger smaller scale period problem with that is of course you always have the takeover target rumors going around and that will make b.p. more attractive for a takeover. or prices of east like you have reports that libyan leader moammar gadhafi has accepted a peace plan to end the conflict in the country brant crude is trading slightly
