is r.t. very good evening for me kevin no it's eleven pm here in moscow and our top story political unity among all palestinians is needed to achieve peace with israel and create an independent state russia's foreign minister a voice that very very well may conflict as the two main palestinian parties came closer together at a meeting here in moscow and coming palestinian minister collections were also on the agenda of course but an ego person off screen following a tux. since hamas and fatah were able to set their differences aside after years of animosity they've now decided to form a joint government you've been saying. for russia support and over the weekend their representatives have been meeting with russian diplomats and now be matched with the foreign minister himself and so you know i've often said that russia is an active member of both the u.n. security council and the middle east quartet which also includes the united states
3:02 pm
to be with the union and to you when it supports the idea of all palestinian political forces to force in this election another issue on the table or was the discussion for the preconditions for the future independence palestinian state and should you also there's also commented on grass freezing the fact that these two years four more years are rivals if i must were able to finally reach common ground and said that only adds up to the fight metion can palestinians negotiate this issue with israel because this is a. choose the creation of an independent palestinian state through resolving the israeli palestinian conflict requires the palestinian leadership to enjoy the support of all palestinians during negotiations unity is important for any nation and is even more important for the palestinian people who are working towards a fair solution to create their own state in accordance with decisions of the un
3:03 pm
the middle east quartet and the arab peace initiative. and hamas are planning to take this matter to the u.n. in september and their representatives have already said that russia has promised its support this whole dispute has been going on for many decades and you know it became pretty clear that the international community including the middle east quartet to be supporting the idea of a two state solution meaning that israel and palestine should be two separate independent turn. just recently us president barack obama said that each waters off these future independent states should be based on goals from nine hundred sixty seven which recently means that they would go through jerusalem this idea is supported by the international community including moscow thought it was new justified the israeli prime minister said that such a scenario would make israel defenseless at a meeting with israel's biggest lobby in the united states barak obama softening
3:04 pm
his stance saying that the borders don't really have to be exactly as they were in one thousand sixty seven mil many analysts are saying that the u.s. is trying to sit on two chairs at the same time trying to please both israel and the international community and back is actually creating even more tension and for more on that here's this report by my colleague. president obama's calls for peace and a two state solution fell on deaf ears both with israelis for many from the mere mentioning of going back to preen nine hundred sixty seven border lines is unacceptable cannot do. so. because he's going to retrench and with the palestinians who believe there is nothing but words in what the u.s. president has said is that any part of pressure on you to be on the prime minister of israel or on israel's. it's like crass it's like
3:05 pm
a lose lose thing like it's very hopeless like we hear the right things kind of them from addressing the powerful pro it's really lobbying washington and president obama is to make sure it can reaffirm that no pressure would be put on israel to advance the process and he's proposed solution was just the friend's advice cease cannot be imposed on the parties to the conference. no vote at the united nations will ever create an independent palestinian state and the united states will stand up against our first to single israel out at the united nations or in any international forum israel's legitimacy is not a matter for debate analysts say the contradiction of words and deeds has been a constant source of global frustration about the us foreign policy in the middle east one example the obama administration has called these really settlement expansion illegitimate but when it came to actually voting at the un security council to condemn the settlement expansion is illegal the us the resolution the
3:06 pm
failure of the united states to deal effectively with israel palestine issue and the double standards that we have actually are part of the president made a very strong case but we should not tolerate civilians being. proud of their rulers but we do nothing with the israelis to do all these things for the palestinians because they. are pretty hard in terms of our credibility in person internationally and that's not important surveys suggest president obama's ratings in the muslim world are as low as ever experts say the inconsistency with which the u.s. reacted to different episodes of the arab uprising is to blame president obama's speech on thursday was seen as a way to reach out to the arab world and say the u.s. supports men and women of the street as opposed to suppressing clueless but it seems he's words resulted in more confusion about u.s. policies particularly when it came to this really palestinian conflict. said what
3:07 pm
he said in the last speech for the world. most of the palestinians feel frustrated. also i was even with the media. they are also. so i don't know who's out the i don't know. president obama is facing pressure from both the international community that has long been suggesting the two state solution of the one nine hundred sixty seven border lies is part of that solution and it's why it's well we're trying that proposal unrealistic president obama's attempts to please both the international community and israel seems to have resulted in yet another nonstarter in the middle east peace process i'm going to check our reporting from washington r.t. well in a speech to the jewish lobby on sunday barack obama warned israel but if it doesn't work towards a credible peace still it could seem founded so totally isolated but political activist who says it's just rhetoric and in reality washington goes along with
3:08 pm
whatever israel demands mr obama and congress this position is primarily going along with what israel dictates to them and they sometimes couch it in very careful words and very beautiful words so it sounds like it is something that is really not the truth and it is never has never so far been followed with any action and it's almost seems like israel is state hating to be american government what they should be saying and what they should be doing and the united states is. not have to take its orders from israel or from any other country and that's orders from any other country but israel seems to be the except if we're going to have more peace process that means just going along with no action that is constructive the only

resignation have to. have a nation really yes i think elections into. the georgian opposition blames president police actions for the revolt in motion and according to political experts the leaders now rapidly losing support among his allies. this of course have surpassed the lee has diminished drastically for several reasons well firstly the war was not that much of what you were inside of the fact that well georgian population i'm not speaking even about georgian elite is not pro russian but the result of the war or not satisfactory for the. secondly well this economic situation the country is not good because in the beginning of his presidency the support of the western european union the united states was rather big now it has diminished for several reasons again well there was crisis but also
3:13 pm
the policy of circus really is not wise and it is not that much that we wanted in the west so while we may force see that through the group of he is supporters will diminish and it will diminish drastically in the next few days it may be just part of the lead just the power but the opposition is growing and your thoughts are political i'm just going to go bring scott your take on him for exemption rationing george a bit earlier on the program. european union's agrees why do sanctions against syria have to blacklisting senior syrian officials three blocks now frozen the assets of the country's president assad and banned them from entering the territory for a minister say it's in response to the violent crackdown on mass anti-government demonstrations in well the plots also taken action against iran over a hundred people and companies were added to the list of those affected by sanctions these measures are designed to force to run to ban these controversial
3:14 pm
atomic program but earlier i asked mideast expert parsi these countries could now repeat the libyan scenario. syria is a much more complicated case because there are some other more important political actors in the region involved so i think a un resolution is much further down the line if at all obviously i mean we have first israel we have lebanon we have you grown involved it's also a question of who why then the people that might take over there is being turned over dynamics of having a religious minority in a sense being in control of the state in this case the other lights on the president bush. and what will happen to them if there is a sudden swing in any other direction basically you can say that there is a certain inherent logic to sanctioning countries and that is that unless he actually starts to include in a way the reward would be to remove sanctions you would basically continue trying to up the ante by by ratcheting up the pressure and in the case of iran we are just
3:15 pm
continuing that kind of path regardless of what's happening in syria the latest sanctions provide you the ones to deal with iran's economy that is cutting it off from the financial system if you will of the world that is having an effect on the ring of society and economy at large but they were put in place primarily in order to affect iran's ability to acquire the nuclear capability that might end up with a nuclear weapon and on that particular aspect i think they haven't had that much of an effect yet twenty three fifteen moscow time greece is facing fresh ultimatums from e.u. members amid criticism is failing to meet its payload obligations athens needs to step up its economic reforms to help reduce its huge national deficit wasn't his country out of a reports next tensions between the country and its creditors a fast approaching boiling point. as famous greek businessman aristotle onassis once said to be successful keep looking and live in an elegant building even if
