ten thirty am in moscow these iraqi headlines new york police get heavy handed with crowds of angry protesters demanding social and economic reform in the u.s. thousands gathered for the biggest rally of a three week long demonstration dubbed 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 it's for several media into backtracking after giving her supposedly have saturation coverage. violence flares up during
2:31 am
a twenty four hour nationwide strike in greece with police resorting to tear gas to disperse crowds in athens the latest protests come as workers grow increasingly angry with fighting austerity cuts. and in syria we turn to next is the former british ambassador to the stricken country explains how he sees all the events unfolding in the country. today i'm talking to basel eastwood's he's a former u.k. ambassador to syria he was serving in the last twenty nine hundred ninety six thousand the situation's changed a lot since then and we're going to talk about what the situation on the ground is like now mystery support for a russian talking to us today now russia believes that assets deserves at least some credit for trying to instigate some kind of reform do you agree well if he was seriously trying he tried to little them too late and his efforts have been totally undermined by the. violence that has been used on the peaceful demonstrations so
2:32 am
that for every. death it becomes that much more difficult to conceive of any solution which leaves him and his coterie in power so from here you don't think there's any way back for a start but 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 he can stay there. but in the long run it's not a viable transition to him that i mean if assad does go is there a genuine opposition that could feasibly take control in any kind of threats. that is the major problem the nature of the opposition is or the demonstrations is that they have been so largely spontaneous that there is no very
2:33 am
coherent leadership and the various attempts to bring together a leadership behind a unified proposal for an alternative 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 good alternative proposition if regime change is to be. not only credible but to happen without massive bloodshed and destruction so the pressure is on the various. aspects of the opposition to come together and form in terms of proposition so you think that the opposition in syria is less organized and cohesive than it is in there it's much more complicated certainly. because whereas in libya you have an opposition that is has come together to fight
2:34 am
a military campaign in syria you have an opposition. that is come together behind calls for peaceful demonstrations with the sole aim of. of removing the regime but that has not required the same sort of coordination that the opposition has had to acquire in in libya and what do you think of me down from the outside since specifically we've already seen the e.u. in haste oil embargoes on syria with threats of further access the situation doesn't create that what form do you think they saxons could take in and who do you think that effect and they depends what the sanctions are i would hope that the sanctions will be rather carefully targeted at particular individuals. and that's the course that has been followed so far except for the oil sanctions
2:35 am
basically as the net is expanding it 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. to ditch the regime and find some other way of securing their interests and what about the ordinary man in the streets is there a way to avoid sanctions effect 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 the 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 likely do you think it is that syria could tap into another maybe
2:36 am
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 have been episodes of violence. which is understandable in a country where those quite a lot of weaponry around. violence is being used against the people. but so far it is green largely nonviolent and 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 confrontation i also think it's inconceivable that any outside powers would want to intervene militarily in a situation which is so complicated on the ground it's very difficult to see how
2:37 am
any sort of outside intervention would help indeed it would probably hinder it because it's the 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 loved in condemnation of the syrian regime's activities how do you think this whole situation is going. prouty for what kind of timeframe for example very good question and i have to say i don't know the answer . we. 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
2:38 am
cannot live outweigh 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 is likely more rapidly because people see that there is no twenty and secondly when it does happen it may stand 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 one point three four it's very difficult because the the activists who have. led if that is the word the demonstrations on the streets are largely unknown
2:39 am
people. with. tremendous courage. and determination but their political views more positive way is to watch it 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. part 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 true i put it. mainly concerned
2:40 am
with its internal problems it is not going to be a regime which indulges in adventurism peace of israel or anyone else. but it will be a regime that is finding its way under very difficult circumstances and you talked about big business supporting the regime in syria but we also see 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. very 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
2:41 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 per se or russia india china and south africa they all are pays a western approach to what's going on in the main banks do you think that the arab spring in general will result in division between the old and the new economic powerhouse in many of the states in the united nations' representation in the un. 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 particularly from some u.k.
2:42 am
with american support as justification for. activity and support which has in fact led to regime change and i think a number of other governments feel this is a worrying. precedent. but it does not mean to say that. in any way favor either put out its regime in libya or what i said i was doing in syria that's a nice trip thank you very much one of the top pleasure. wealthy british scientists some time to.
