president obama says russia should take part in building and see missile radars in europe reassuring warsaw moscow washington friendship won't. belgrade it agrees to extradite former general ruffo blood is to the hague on war crimes charges just by his ongoing health problems meantime serbia's accused of arresting him only so it can join the e.u. . georgian of protesters appealed to the e.u. to probe excessive harassment following the government's independence a crackdown the left hundreds wounded and to take.
7:01 am
a very warm welcome senior this is r.t. live from moscow i'm sure that russia should take part in developing anti missile shield in europe that's according to u.s. president barack obama who is in warsaw wrapping up his four nation european tour up but he was quick to assure that his efforts to boost ties between moscow and washington post another threat to wit the u.s. polish talks are something moscow is watching a closely especially after obama's promise to try and agree on a system that suits both of their security interests let's get an update on the outcome from our correspondent go to piss him off he is you know. this is barack obama's first official visit last leg of his european tour a lot of issues to work on the table here but all the focus is on the plans for poland to forced a u.s. air. this year on its territory which would service military transport planes
7:02 am
american planes and also f. sixteen fighter jets and also possibly have short range interceptor missiles by the year two thousand and eighteen many analysts here in poland including the former prime and foreign minister they see that clearly there is no threat to poland from any of its neighbors so there will be see a point in washington increasing its military presence here at the moment it was actually the george bush administration which wanted to before paul and to halle's elements of that anti missile defense system in europe here on its territory and also in the czech republic this was fuselier criticized by russia it's said that basing these islands here would create a direct threat to russia's national security so when and barak obama became the president of the united states he scrapped these plans in fact there was a lot of talk about increasing cooperation between moscow washington and brussels
7:03 am
for russia the united states and nato to possibly build a joint anti missile defense system which will enable all sides to share the responsibility for the safety of one another at the g eight summit in paris both presidents need to be vigilant and barack obama talked about this possible joint system and said that it should definitely work for the interests of all sides but really when it comes to a not a word but actually it seems that washington's policy is sort of moving to the side of it because earlier the united states in a room eniac agreed for the country to helles elements of the anti-missile defense system on the very territory and russia was not included in this project now needs to be viewed of saying that russia has to closely monitor how the situation is developing in fact he said that if this tendency continues the world me see another
7:04 am
arms race by twenty twenty it just seems that the policies that washington is talking about don't really fit in the real picture. russia believes the promise is not enough he wants a legal guarantees that the u.s. and its allies won't use the planned missile shield against it but it's from the u.s. base arms control association says divisions within the united states won't encourage a solution to satisfy both well they are talking about how to make this a joint system the question is what does joint mean at this point they're talking about sharing early warning information and other radar information which would be a step forward but before they can get there before they can get to a shared system russia needs to be reassured that the system is not aimed at it and again the nato and the united states need to make a joint statement to russia saying that this is tim is not aimed at you this is him
7:05 am
is no danger to you it's focused on on dangers and threats from middle east not from russia there is the obama administration which very much wants a cooperative relationship on missile defense with russia and very much wants another arms control reduction agreement with russia certain republicans in the u.s. senate do not want those things so we have to make that clear distinction between what the ministration wants and what some members of the senate want so focusing on what the administration wants and what russia wants they both want cooperation on missile defense and they both want to move on to a new arms reduction agreement and given that i think there's enough common interest to move that forward. you with r t it's good to have your company today and still to come this hour power opening affronts here is leading to an anxious to israel egypt that after years of tight control the egypt gasser crossing become completely open it's going to leave one week probably explain why.
7:06 am
it's so good of court has ruled that former bosnian serb army general is fit to stand trial in the hague his family has said he isn't healthy enough to be extradited capturing him has been a key condition for serbia's e.u. entry and his artie's academy has about reports what it is a rest is seen as a sacrifice that the country's very willing to make. success or sellout the arrest of former bosnian general outcome lovage has put serbia and the headlines once again for years no nato action un demands or even a five million dollars balancing put up by washington could help snare him at the prospect of billions of dollars worth of aid slipping out of reach too much for belgrade a leaked u.n. report stating that serbia refused to cooperate in the search for europe's most wanted man let most assume membership negotiations would be cancelled and just a week later serbia achieved what it couldn't for the previous sixteen years serbia
7:07 am
if it wanted to hand him over as the price of entering the european union had every interest in doing it as quickly as possible and the targets government which came into power in two thousand and eight should have done it then and they would have done it and i'm sure if they'd known where he was officials in belgrade very much hope that they can finally get a piece of the hero pie but the people of serbia doubt it collects. prices. your minds and your national supply western companies and organizations who will be able to get into the european union let's call the war criminals and that again is going to help you get into this so-called rich man's club because we can see who the rich ones club who it once was great difficulties itself serbia's are already complied with a lot of e.u. demands including arresting former president slobodan milosevic and political leaders. and each time the response from the e.u.
7:08 am
has been enough to keep the dream of membership alive secure this year play this is very big news this is a very courageous decision by the serbian president this is one additional step for the insurrection of serbia intervene european union one day the arrest of our comrade it's is a very important step towards full integration of the entire region in your atlantic community i believe that people will also be thinking about serbia and its future in the european union. what i know is that we will approach that we three new energy because of today but some believe serbia's membership on the ships could simply devastate the country and stead of boosting its economy especially during the ongoing financial crisis of several you member states so be media more tightly controlled by the government they have of being under a new lawsuit repeating in unison that the e.u. is some kind of panacea that will resolve the problems now if serbia does during
7:09 am
the think it will be before in history that a rat has count on a sinking ship a long and drawn out trial is almost a guarantee and not many believe it will be an objective process still it seems for the serbian powers that be no price is too high if they are included in the expansion for now the sixty eight year old general awaits his fate in jail but considering the fact his arrest was one of the major conditions for serbia's potential acceptance into the european union it seems to be a question of when and not if he will face the war crimes tribunal and made catherine as are the party belgrade serbia. it's going to ten minutes past the hour here i'm also here with our team on the way for you we're in new york without wasif the doomsayers all right with the tornadoes battering the u.s. and the pacific rim. ok the world in the last weekend
7:10 am
there were four billion years the sun burns out but it will be ok while i do find out if these are the only one to see the sunny side over the mankind's building up of trouble for the future that's in about ten minutes time. opposition members in georgia are appealing to the to investigate the government's savage crackdown on protesters during the country's independence day they were demonstrating against what they say is mass top level corruption and accuse president saakashvili of suppressing political freedom the opposition says hundreds of people are still being held in jails many others including senior political figures are reported missing those who continue to speak out against the government say they're being violently harassed right special forces opposition leader you know but it's a nazi spoke about what she sees as the state of democracy and today's georgia whose yes. georgia has become very similar to north korea where people have been
7:11 am
taken to hospital brought back to jail beaten again and taken to emergency rooms where people often didn't from visiting their loved ones where people are terrorized and where georgian security forces silence criticism of the government under the threat of more violence this is the democracy we live in i can honestly say that i will have strong doubts whether democratic values even exist in this world if the international community doesn't acknowledge what is going on today in georgia. but georgia posing voice and say they are under some of the most intense pressure they've faced in years believing their governments intent on wiping them out so forth was in the square in tbilisi which was the flashpoint for this week's violence she says still hanging over the city but what we're hearing is in the aftermath of the dispersal of that protest wednesday night is that the crackdown on if opposition is continuing so what we're hearing he says they said it was
7:12 am
a day of independence military parade and certainly the atmosphere was very said there was a heavy military and police presence remaining on the streets many of the streets were close we saw a lot of the people that prayed itself were military personnel they were civilians turning out to watch that this is certainly very simply than what we've been hearing since and is that this crackdown has continued now artie's create have actually received a text from someone who says he's not in a pigeon sun the leader opposition he let the rally and what he's takes three t r t is that it's really very serious situation according to him he's there's a number of people including opposition leaders who are missing and he's talking about people who are still being arrested century saying that the opposition are still being silenced by seconds fairly and his government. people have been beaten to death some of my friends have been arrested dozens of opposition supporters can't reach each of my friends have simply disappeared. with
7:13 am
reporters. just. a few supporters have been arrested one of the opposition leaders . everybody who did. so because really this is basically dictatorship and the days leading up to wednesday what we saw the numbers turning out the demonstrations were markedly less now they're actually divisions among the opposition themselves. quietly against come together some of the other opposition parties they call a day of rage that was at the last minute called earth a lot of them in space we're talking to you they were very confused they didn't quite was happening. it was quite clear that something was going to happen the police turned out and we knew that the intervention the dispersal was going to go ahead but once they meet in the crowd at the very very quickly it was extremely violent. people here with the amount of police it turns out a lot of people saying off was was that sort of just justifiable
7:14 am
a lot of people thought not excessive force one of our own correspondents he works the spanish channel with hit by one of the rather bullets and if you're outside that main area of parliament then you're fair game to then and that's the force that they were using as we said a lot of questions being asked about whether that was excessive force and whether it's justified. to surface right there well you can get the latest updates on what's happening in georgia directly from our correspondents following our twitter stream and also video reports and opinion on the bloody crackdown against protesters which you can look through your own leisure on our facebook page facebook dot com slash artsy.
