the artist a lot more this hour we'll bring you the thinkers in twenty minutes in our business . around the world and around the clock this is. what we start in libya where nato is keeping up its heaviest yet one province accountable since estrus began in march attacks continued into wednesday morning with warplanes hitting tripoli more than sixty times government representatives claim the latest killed thirty one people become gadhafi remains defiant in the face of narrators raids and he will never surrender libyan state t.v. broadcasts and when you address the grounds the coalition around the rebels meanwhile tension is occurring between nato commanders and the libyan opposition and. portland is accusing us of the union mission to what is essentially a. people's uprising russia's special envoy is in the record sort of. trying to
spur trying to take forward to his group is following this that. the russian special presidential envoy rico markelov is now here in libya to try to mediate in the civil war that has lasted for months already and has already claimed many many allies including innocent civilians we seriously think that airstrikes never sold political problems and we said it here very clearly as long as the bloodshed continues so the longer it continues the more difficult it will be to build a national reconciliation process off to the civil war so we are very much in favor of building political bridges so to speak and we are ready to help this comes following president medvedev announcement after the g. eight meeting in france that's colonel gadhafi has lost its legitimacy and should
step down no one can predict how successful this special piece of the russian federation will be here in libya but one thing is clear that will definitely not be easy because of his government has repeatedly strongly retracted the possibility of the colonel qadhafi standing down while these is the major and most important among all the radicals people who come with conditions the un and something else that in something big indian nation because they are saying to the libyan people you do not know what is good for you we are good to choose for you so if you are really interested in peace what you do is you come and see the future of libya should be decided by libyans the russian peace mediators a rival sides with an intensification of nato is a military activity here in. we are actually not allowed to leave the hotel where
we're staying now in the center of tripoli but from here we can see and hear that nato has intensified its strikes on colonel gadhafi is military arsenal here in the states just days ago the alliance expanded its war against because after regime and the first time started to use an attack helicopters a mission to resist foreign secretary has declared after visiting the rebels in benghazi that they have operation against gadhafi here in libya could last beyond russia is very concerned about this by saying but nature is actions beginning to resemble a ground operation more and more this is something strongly opposed to and russia has always been strongly opposed to insisting on diplomatic and political means to conflict. reporting there from the very heart of the conflict in tripoli and to
follow what she's seeing twitter posts on the school. she's monitoring what's happening throughout the day to the very latest developments in the. mediating peace in libya russia says it's also determined to prevent from intervention in the country in syria the regime is continuing its crackdown on protesters with france and. for action russia's foreign minister says the kremlin would oppose any resolution. because of those in your thoughts that one of the cons to the proposal to consider syria in a similar way as was applied to the libyan situation in which the security council and international community have already become bogged down we believe that diplomacy should be aimed at resolving problems politically and not to create conditions for new armed conflicts we should support a process of national reconciliation on accord and constructive peacekeeping roles
for neighboring states rather than try to past more and more revolutions which will in fact mean siding with one of the parties in an internal political conflict. are about well what is assessed serious troubles are internal problems that it's by their own way british journalists has written extensively about the arab spring. or mcquery or powers well set of very thoughts. it's a very very dangerous move by britain and france to fear in the syrian revolution because both countries have a very long history in this region palestine lebanon and syria itself and i think it will be seen very much as western interference. of syria we have to remember that a revolution in the revolutionary process that is taking place in the middle east is one in which ordinary people are taking time to take control of their society this is an internal struggle if you like for the future direction of syria and you
feel there's a sense now that france or president sarkozy of france is moving like a demon to try and. place grants back in a position of power inside the middle east and i have to repeat we have to remember that france had control over syria in from the end of the first world war and there was a very very long struggle for syria to get rid of the french for independence so the idea that this is somehow some kind of benevolent force coming in to help the syrian population i think that's very little ice so i think it's a very unwise move by the west to interfere. but i still had been held back a hindu to tell me to make him eat. this cost reduce his writing the social stigma to make their way for a place in society rather. officials from a thirty nuclear energy producing countries are meeting in paris countries getting

to solar field it was to make sure it would be sent back to japan using japanese kitani and even before for the plutonium or. processing plant at sellafield was considered one of the biggest disasters in british industrial history producing just ten percent of its planned output huge cost but that hasn't stopped the government plans for building yet another plant it could cost ten billion dollars much of it taxpayer money it's really about getting rid of plutonium there's no other purpose for. more expensive to produce subsidies and uses to make it work and it produces nuclear waste that is much more difficult to deal with for now the stockpiles here to stay posing a massive security threat from the biggest. eleven is of course that stock will be targeted in some way by terrorists either by crashing
