brussels. or g.'s website continues following the fate of almost twenty ukrainian citizens who remain in custody in libya as rebel suspect them of being pro the sniper we are the russian embassy was able to secure the release of two russians and a ukrainian couple they say the group is our oil engineers and cooks who have nothing to do with the military. for the full story. stay with the region activists in syria say seven people were killed as government forces used armored vehicles in the besieged city of homs this is the u.n. calls for more pressure to be put on president assad's regime but professor edmund ghareeb an expert in international relations says sanctions won't necessarily bring down the regime but they will make ordinary people suffer in any case what top whatever happens the sanctions are clearly a. instrument that does not discriminate between the regime and the people and what
4:11 am
may end up happening is that the people who probably are going to have you know price. especially if we take. a look at what happened in iraq or what happened with cuba experiment there's a very good example of this where some of the harshest sanctions out imposed on any country in the history want to impose on iraq and despite that very did not succeed in bringing that regime down and they have affected the iraqi public which was heard to say beautifully as a result of the sanctions so this is. i think is going to raise a lot of questions especially some of them political economic and some of course. the e.u. has already imposed sanctions on oil imports from syria on our website we're asking what's the true aim of this so far fourteen percent of respondents think president assad is the target seven percent say the real game is to liberal voters in the
4:12 am
e.u. countries almost a third are you the e.u. wants to please the us and about half of taken part in the our online poll say the sanctions hit ordinary syrians to provoke more protests. have your say. the central russian city of jaroslav all is becoming a global think tank this week with a third global policy forum inviting the best minds to come up with solutions to some of the world's thorniest problems this year it's multiculturalism that's among the main focal points a concept that recently got severe blows in europe global security also on the table with debates on syria and libya and the question of how to keep the region safe after nato withdraws from afghanistan artes and he said no way using your us level with more. is expected that there's going to be some pretty intense debate especially when it comes to global security in terms of what's happening in libya and now syria and like you said in afghanistan in two thousand and fourteen the
4:13 am
u.s. and nato troops are expected to withdraw and for countries like russia its other partners in the collective. security treaty organization which is an organization that focuses in that part of the world is concerned about how they're going to deal with security in the region after if you will post afghanistan to speak more about about that and other issues that are being covered here at the forum this year joining me is adrian pabst is a lecturer in politics at the university of kent i think for being with us always a pleasure to have you on so you know let's start with libya and syria what are the main if i can say the sticking points that we might hear today what are the different views that you think are going to be thrown around on the table one discussion the inevitably going to happen. you know was the intervention riots was the u.n. mandate respected by by nature or in fact was it violates. questions where intervention always come up but i think we should focus on the longer term
4:14 am
issues as you mentioned in your introduction it's really about building up societies building are viable political economic and social systems and i think too often people say well if the in an intervention is wrong then in some ways countries get out and you know let societies get on with their lives but you need support you know transition societies need a lot of support and that can be both domestic and foreign support so i think what we should be discussing is a longer term presence especially civil society actors who can help build up the potential in the capacity of transition countries now nato and russia don't know we see eye to eye it's very not much of a secret but one thing they have been able to cooperate quite significantly on is afghanistan. what happens after afghanistan and what role do you think the collective security treaty organization could play what i think what will happen is that the the wind down of military presence will inevitably be a destabilizing factor because of ghana stand isn't fully ready to cope with its
4:15 am
own security problems and challenges so i think engagement again longer term engagement is crucial and i think any support for a more stable afghanistan will be welcome whether it's by individual countries russia of course be one of the main powers in the region but also perhaps other organizations collective security treaty organization is one shanghai cooperation organization is another one i think there's engagement and support the better it is and i don't think nato anyone should be worried about this of course afghanistan has to ultimately decide you know what kind of support it wants. the afghan people have to be at the center of this but i think support for regional powers an organization that's crucial. hope for a better country but not as part of the united kingdom there's a strong sense of national identity in wales which has helped fuel calls for it to achieve independence something similar following similar calls farther north in
4:16 am
scotland but as artie's are amid reports debate continues raging over whether welsh ambitions are driven by economic sense or emotion. welcome to wales part of the u.k. and a proud nation with its own language and customs and the latest voice to call for independence applied comrie which means the party of wales has always argued the country could be better off without the u.k. and it seems increasing numbers are starting to see their point of view our economy has been run from london with the interest and priorities of the south east of england to the fore an independent will be able to chart a different course based on our needs and our priorities wales is a long way from declaring independence but it's no longer just a pipe dream people here voted overwhelmingly earlier this year in favor of handing the welsh assembly full law making powers that was considered a turning point in welsh nationhood and plights couldn't read the party of wales
4:17 am
have undoubtedly taken hearts from the surprise victory of the scottish national party that victory in may gave the s.n.p. an outright majority in the scottish parliament which has many powers devolved from westminster the party's promise to hold a scotland wide referendum on whether to declare independence according to plied comrie that marks the turning of the tide for a unified u.k. people i believe are beginning to to use the word independence in in a welsh context which they say they wouldn't have done a few years ago or. develops i think the people in where's it going to see that when scotland becomes independent the next logical step is for we're just becoming dependent to of course separatism is nothing new to the british isles and the thousands of victims of the troubles in northern ireland are testament to how high feelings can run both in the present day and for centuries past while national
4:18 am
sentiment may not be a new phenomenon the reasons for it have changed over the years. is and in these current tough economic times money talks scotland has oil and gas but while wales was a proud coal producing nation its minds are now closed and it's got some of the highest unemployment levels in the u.k. because of that the older generation is reserved when it comes to independence but young people are filled with national fervor but them independence is less about money and more about nationhood and identity wales needs to be independent because it is a great country and we do we do and it like an ageing because we would be patriotic i think more patriotic than england i mean we have a lot of hope that we shouldn't forget just seem to be back to here at the moment that you can get free prescriptions. education seems to be
4:19 am
a bit much to. me says it's going to build on that support providing not just emotional reasons why wales should be independent but concrete economic reasons too and it says wales does have resources particularly land and seafood green energy if the scots vote for independence wales might not be far behind. turning back now to our top story the german high court has just issued a ruling on the legality of bellows where it held the country's participation in the euro zone rescue funds the procedure was triggered by a complaint from euro skeptic academics and politicians they'd argue that the first greek bailout and the subsequent creation of a special rescue fund broke in un german law turning now to some other stories making headlines across the globe british lawmakers are considering recalling the chairman of news corp james murdoch for further questioning over the phone hacking scandal a day earlier two former employees of the company suggested he misled and he's

4:22 am
western governments particularly germany running the e.c. at the time and subsequently by the us the right. these these governments declared that yugoslavia borders would no longer exist and would be replaced by borders smaller of the secession so this was at the expense of yugoslavia's largest people but i think there is an effort on the part of western governments to persuade the serbian public that in some way they are guilty absolutely for everything how they feel they deserve to be treated worse than the rest of the world that they should be punished that they should be imprisoned that their territory should be carved away from them this is an attempt to psychologically brainwash the serbian people that they deserve what they get and what they get is going to be very bad sadly i don't see too much opposition to this policy on the part of the serbian government which really has a responsibility which it has not exercised to say that the description of the war has been one sided biased and incorrect. coming out later the controversial figure
