2:31 pm
questions but systematic problems of the new situation in the international relations the problems that immersion different regions and that are very much connected with the discussion of of the way we can use. the democrats as ation and rule of law principles to our policies. and i believe. it was a very useful conversation about what role of the united nations has in these processes. of the united states and russia have confirmed that the as a permanent. members of the security council were very much interested in. promoting peace and security globally we have discussed many other topics for example west the situation of the iranian nuclear threat and. korea korean
2:32 pm
peninsula this is very important for nonproliferation regime and this will help us avoid other conflicts and we also talked about libyan situation in other eastern and african countries about the situation in afghanistan we have been operating cooperating very closely in various. areas and in the light of what it's meeting yesterday in washington which was very useful. and it helped experts to prepare specific documents that we have also discussed of the topic of conventional arms in europe we have very much interested in finding mutually accepted framework to reach an agreement on new control of conventional arms in this very important treaty and. which is crucial for russia in the united states and i would like to note that we had a very useful. we also
2:33 pm
talked about our cooperation in arctics and antarctic which is also very important. also we identified that there is a possibility to bring our positions closer in the issues where we still have some . misunderstandings like bilateral cooperation and international edge and and in comparison to previous years we see these problems as workable and we understand that in some spheres we do not have converging interests but. we promote same aims and we maintain dialogue about how to most effectively move to the to those aims and in the end i would like to say about one symbolic thing it is the thirteenth of july
2:34 pm
today and in seventeen twenty eight this day the first expedition of it was bearing to contract the started which prove that your asia and america are divided by the gulf. and these days a group of americans and russians are going through the bering gulf in commemoration of this historic date. and the day after tomorrow on the fifteenth of july will mark another memorable day it's two hundred seventy years since the second simple ship crew headed to come to chad go. by aleksey to recover. and we've talked about alaska a lot today and we have a principle solution of presidents about the necessity to develop cooperation in our trips through bearing gulf and we spoke about space. big projects and events
2:35 pm
that might be organized that would be very much interesting for people who live in alaska. and we discussed this today and also i think. this means that we have a new quality talk operations would not only think about strategic things we also care about citizens and i think that this is a lesson for us the lesson for our corporations for many years ahead. we have two questions on the american side and two questions on the russian side first on the american side curate raddy have please. thank you very much a question for the both of you your french counterpart has said the colonel gadhafi is looking for a way out of libya there are reports that he is running out of resources out of fuel for his troops can you tell us if you know anything about him being on the ropes is there any diplomatic play. that could get him out of the country and
2:36 pm
a question for for the minister on the syria could you explain why russia has blocked action in the united nations to condemn the syrian government for the crackdown on protesters in syria is it now not time for international action with now more than one thousand people killed thank you since the fall of the there are three crescendo that's the way it is. well let me take the one you directed at me about libya the foreign minister and i discussed at length and compared notes today on our respective diplomacy with the t.n.c. we very much appreciate the diplomatic work that russia is doing through its special envoy. we are still getting contradictory signals from colonel gadhafi scamp he has yet to meet the red lines that are set by the international community to cease violence against his people withdraw his forces and step down from power.
2:37 pm
so although neither of us can predict to you the exact day or hour that qaddafi will leave power. we do understand and agree that his days are numbered we will continue to work closely with our international partners including russia to increase the pressure on him and his regime and we will keep looking for a way to achieve a cease fire. there and the military action give the libyan people a chance to plot their own way forward and i think both sergey and i believe that the united nations needs to be in the lead and needs to be helping to organize the international community so that we are ready when that does finally happen. and i would like to add that. for sure the situation around libya is the case where our position is
2:38 pm
a bit diverging this is all about the way the resolution of security council is being followed but in the parenthesis i would like to say that on this topic we have less misunderstandings with our united states than with some european countries we are united in that we have to start political process as soon as possible. and we have different channels official and not very official channels to work through to create conditions for this process we have voiced out our position for many times and there is a special presidential envoy mr margolis who is working actively in the region with the both sides of the conflict and i think that the whole set of the measures being taken by nato members and of russia and the region countries as well
2:39 pm
and also african union and his initiative with support will lead to an agreement to reach a cease fire and to start negotiations there is no other way to solve this issue as any other issue in the modern world. and speaking about syria you are asking why russia is blocking the resolution that would condemn us that you know diplomacy. does not exist to condemn. and start putting on political scores so our. goal is to solve problems but just condemning people without any solution will not lead us to anything so we believe that. the example of approach. is our common feeling toward yemen and our actions with yemen we do not
2:40 pm
propose to condemn. or to take want to take resolutions to support one or other country russia the european union and the. arab league and the persian gulf. states. insist that opposition and the other side would start negotiations and would start following the road map and i'm sure that for the destiny of the region for. all of a lower interest it is absolutely important. that we are. responsible but not. wishy washy to the situation and i just want you to understand our position on this. underage are called. my question is to the
2:41 pm
leaders of the both delegations you have just signed the adoption agreement does that mean that the moratorium for adoption by the american families will be lifted soon and why did it take so long to draw up this document. even spend less time to work out the start agreement that this issue wide why does it happen so. first of all. statistically speaking. it's not right say that to work longer than the start agreeing meant i think we managed to do it a bit quicker and speaking about. the second thing. this is the first agreement of such nature. that we agreed with italy and we prepared it for four years and today we are going to sign such kind of
2:42 pm
agreement with israel. and we reached agreement with the united states notes overnight because we had to take into account the legal peculiarity as of american legal system because there are different states have different legislations. that even for the beginning of the negotiations we needed to take a very serious political will about american partners and that's why this agreement has become equals. absolutely bilateral it has guarantees and save guards for the both sides that would allow people to make sure that an adoptive parent is psychologically stable that the family has come from. through a special filter off authorized by it is authorized by the united states government and that the adoptive parents provide access of russian diplomats to the children
2:43 pm
living in the united states these are the most most important components of this issue and it's going to. be in force very soon is not going to be ratified in the u.s. but we will be ratifying it so we discuss some technical details that will allow us to speed this process up. instead there still has those but. the. doubt and assume more affairs in the other russian government agencies that have worked on that that's a place that is going to be from what are going the. process to share. the new problems both want the same outcome we want all children whether they be russian children or american children to be able to have loving homes with
2:44 pm
families that will take good care of them and of course the united states wants to be sure that we meet all of the concerns that the russian side raised and we believe we have. a. moment from reuters. yesterday at the russian embassy you described an approach toward iran on the nuclear issue one of what you called a step by step process whereby the iranians might take steps to address some of the i.a.e.a. concerns and the p five plus one in return would take steps to ease the pressure of sanctions can you shed can you give us details on the kinds of steps you would like to see the iranians take under such an approach and secretary clinton can you address the possibility of easing sanctions early in the process historically i think the administration has been reluctant to
2:45 pm
do that because of the feeling that to do so would be to give up your leverage at the start of a negotiation. but we shouldn't be near. this issue here and this is yet another example of the fact that there are problems on our agenda we have the same final ains is that this came is to avoid proliferation of nuclear arms but at the same time we do have some individual approaches concerning the way we move to the skull and we have some coinciding points here we have a collective document of five plus one or three plus three whatever you call it which is supported by the russian federation which contains the proposal of the six to iran about how to settle all the issues that will allow all of us
2:46 pm
to see that. the character of the nuclear program is absolutely civilian and. restore their rights to the security of this document has been given to the iranian side about two years ago was as far as far as i remember and it specifies everything that has to be done by the iranian side it is available for studying there is nothing sensational about it because everything iran has to do is based on the requirements of the i.a.e.a. and everything is well known and these requirements were supposed by the security council of the un when we have russia say about the necessity to follow a phased. and mutuals process. with united. i doubt this neutral position of the three plus three group
2:47 pm
we propose on each requirement of the. us. to create some kind of a road map starting from the easiest. questions and. in the end there will be the most difficult ones that would require time and we're sure that their weak response to each specific step of iran. would be followed by some. reciprocal steps like freezing some sanctions and shortening the volume of sanctions and we have formulated our proposals it is has been handed over to american and chinese partners in the framework of five plus one today we discussed this and we said that the experts will inquire into these things and make a decision. well i think it is the minister said we both share the same goal and we have worked together with others to achieve that goal of preventing iran from
2:48 pm
obtaining nuclear weapons and we will be sending a team of our experts to consult with russian experts to discuss ways that we can move forward i have told minister lavrov that we are concerned by the failure of the responses thus far from iran to high representative ashton and the resistance of iran to a request for further access regarding military related activities but nevertheless we are committed to our dual track both pressure and engagement and we want to explore with the russians ways that we can perhaps pursue more effective engagement strategies. question from the russian side for maria shriver i noticed. the to my big question is to both
2:49 pm
leaders you said that you were going to sign a new visa agreement. would you please specify the terms of the signing and what is your prognosis about some obstacles on the way to this agreement knowing that businesspeople and citizens support the visit simplifications well the answer is simple that this will happen this year this is for sure and it will happen before christmas even the catholic christmas it's speaking about obstacles and there are no such as i have said the agreement is absolutely ready we just have to follow through so far mallet is some technical issues that's it. and we are very pleased about this step toward greater visa liberalization between our two countries and look forward to all the christmas travel that we'll see. thank you all very much wolf.
2:50 pm

empire and disarray rupert murdoch and his immense media assets were under investigation in what is being called voice mail is this. with the end of the boer war and the going away of the soviet union many people thought that nuclear weapons disappeared. the risk is not zero that something might be going off by mistake especially a lot of salads a little nuclear weapons on hair trigger alert. puppets of the victims to use it as a threat all as an extra bit but you know if you keep spending a trillion dollars a year on weapons of benchley you're going to blow everybody up you've you know people are dying from these weapons but until we actually see if people don't wake up to nuclear weapons or a bill. that represents all the firepower of the second world war and this second sound is the equivalent firepower of the world's nuclear arsenal
