is currently witnessing the sewage infrastructure construction in the somali region special economic zone promises exceptional of the tutsis debility you'll business in russia will come to the somalia region for more information log onto the boat invest in some models of you. eight thirty am in moscow here are the headlines we're following breaking news on our team new york police get heavy handed with crowds of angry protesters demanding social and economic reform in the u.s. thousands are rallying in the biggest gathering of a three week long demonstration called occupy wall street. back from the dead the syrian woman reported as the first female victim of the government's pro-democracy crackdown turns up alive and well of course in several media is a backtracking after of giving her supposed death saturation coverage. in greece
12:31 am
grinds to a halt as the biggest twenty four hour nationwide strike in months turns violent with police resorting to tear gas to disperse crowds in apple's latest protests come as austerity cuts and deep deep well the cash is slowly running out. and it's turned to syria next is the former british ambassador to the stricken country explains how he sees the events unfolding. today i'm talking to basel eastwood's he's a former u.k. ambassador to syria he was serving in damascus through nine hundred ninety six and two thousand the situations changed to not since then and we're going to talk about what the situation on the ground is like now and streets that thank you very much for talking to us today now russia's been the stats assets to at least some credit for trying to instigate some kind of reform do you agree well if you was seriously trying he tried to little him too late and his efforts have been totally undermined
12:32 am
by the. violence that has been used on the peaceful demonstrations so that for every. death it becomes that much more difficult to conceive of any solution which leaves him and his coterie in power say from here you don't think there's any way back for a start i think frankly. the best one can hope for is some sort of negotiated transition. that might give him a way out. but it's very difficult to see how he can stay in power in the long run in the short run yes by increasing repression you can say that. but in the longer run it's not viable transition to him that i mean if assad tells go is that a genuine opposition that could feasibly take control in any kind of forensic writing that is the major problem the nature of the opposition
12:33 am
is or the demonstrations is that they have been so largely spontaneous that there is no very coherent leadership and the various attempts to bring together a leadership behind a unified proposal for a return of things have so far failed but it's becoming clearer and clearer i think to the man in the street him. syria that they've got to have a alternative proposition if regime change is to be. not only credible but to happen without massive bloodshed and destruction so that the pressure is on the various. aspects of the opposition to come together and form an alternative proposition so you think that the opposition in syria is less organized and coping civs than it is in every other it's much more complicated certainly. because whereas in libya you have an opposition that is has come together to fight
12:34 am
a military campaign in syria where you have an opposition voters come together behind calls for peaceful demonstrations with the sole aim of now of. moving the regime but that is not required the same sort of coordination that the opposition has had to acquire in in libya and what you think of me down from the outside sanctions specifically we've already seen a u.n. paste oil embargoes on syria with threats of further action if the situation thousand and prayed that what form do you think they sanctions could taken and who do you think that affect the maids depends what the sanctions are i would hope that the sanctions will be rather carefully targeted at particular individuals.
12:35 am
and that's the course that has been followed so far except for the oil sanctions basically as the net is expanded to capture more of the the big businessmen who have worked alongside the regime and who have probably tacitly supported it in the past. so the tendency will be will be increasing pressure on them. too to ditch the regime and find some other way of securing their interests and what about the ordinary man on the streets is there a way to avoid functions or facts on him the problem for the ordinary person is that the whole syrian economy. is going to be more and more affected by the disruption and the insecurity and total collapse of the tourism industry for example which is increasingly important in syria. so it is those things that are going to harm the ordinary man in the street rather than targeted sanctions how
12:36 am
likely do you think it is that syria could tap into another maybe a tight situation i sincerely hope that it won't what is remarkable so far is the extent to which the opposition has remained nonviolent there has been every sense of violence. which is understandable in a country well is quite a lot of weaponry around and violence is being used against the people. but so far it has been largely nonviolent there are increasing calls amongst the opponents of the regime saying you know we've got to use violence i sincerely hope they will those calls will be resisted so i don't think it's going to turn into that sort of . civil war type of confrontation i also think it's inconceivable that any outside powers would want to intervene militarily in
12:37 am
a situation which is so complicated on the ground it's very difficult to see how any sort of outside intervention would help indeed it would probably hinder because it's one thing that might bring all the syrians together in opposition to outside intervention so i just don't see that happening i think that's well realized amongst those who are most large in condemnation of the syrian regime's activities how do you think this whole situation is going. pay outside for what kind of timeframe for example very good question and i have to say i don't know the answer . the. short term i think the regime will probably survive. through increased repression and shown itself willing to do whatever it takes and so far there are no signs of the the core of the regime crumbling. but as the economy deteriorates as the. big business which has supported the regime seems that its future
12:38 am
cannot live that way i think you're going to see more. defections from the regime and there will come a point i would think within months rather than years when things quite rapidly fall apart. if the opposition can get its act together. then. firstly it may happen slightly more rapidly as people see that the recent trend and secondly when it does happen it may sound a better chance of being relatively peaceful rather than bloody chaos when we talk about opposition in syria what kind of people are we talking about what or it's very difficult because the the activists who have. led if that is the words the demonstrations on the streets are largely unknown people.
12:39 am
with. tremendous courage. and determination but their political views more positively as to what should happen to syria a largely unknown. but i think you can assume that it will not be. sectarian it will. have a. a role in it for the muslim brotherhood. but the syrian muslim brotherhood are relatively modern minded and will be i think prepared to play along with coalition politics. it will i think. be a regime which. is why put it. mainly concerned
12:40 am
with its internal problems it is not going to be a regime which indulges in adventurism these are very israel or anyone else. but it will be a regime that is finding its way under very difficult circumstances if you thought that big business supporting the regime in syria or practically all say some support coming from the outside particularly from iran how do you think that will play out in such an unstable region well it's one of the things that i think has been spelt inspired e.g. the saudis to come out in criticism of the regime that. they many of the governments in the middle east are profoundly worried about iran. and don't like the extent to which what is happening in syria might increase iranian influence but i have to say that. the iranian government itself does not like to be seen.
12:41 am
as being the principal supporter of a secular regime that is using violence in this way and there have been signs of a ring in embarrassment. so. i don't know quite how this one's going to play out but i don't think it's a clear cut situation then leading emerging market economy personal russia india china south africa they all of a western approach to what's going on in the maintenance do you think that the arab spring in general will result in division between the old arms a new economic powerhouse many of the states in the united nations representation in the u.n. . feel unhappy about the way in which. the resolution of the security council which authorized all necessary measures in relation to libya. was used by nato to clear france and you. with american
12:42 am
support as justification for. activity and support which has in fact led to regime change and i think a number of other governments feel that this is a worrying. precedent. but it does not mean to say that they in any way faydra either could after this regime in libya or what. it is doing in syria. thank you very much for the top pleasure.
12:43 am
