on syria calling for a political dialogue instead of tough sanctions on president assad regime meanwhile the syrian government says terrorist groups are active in the country and targeting military leaders and intellectual. up next the view from inside syria from someone who has the president's ear r.t. speaks with his political and press advisor about the beleaguered country's situation. as they were saving the this is the third time that the security council has failed to adopt a resolution criticizing syria as russia and china use that power as a veto joining us today to discuss this and the general situation in the country is political and media advisor to syria's president dr was saying a shotgun mr ban welcome to our program how do you assess the position taken by russia and the security council to blog the resolution criticizing syria what information did syrian authorities give russia to support its position. we welcome
the positions taken by russia and china and their use of the veto in the interests of syria and its people the information provided was just about the reality of the state of affairs the point is that decisions taken by western countries are based not on real events in syria but rather on the task of suppressing syria as an arabic state that plays an important role in resistance at the same time unfortunately they draw conclusions from reports by a few self-seeking arabic media outlets who act as their accomplices in covering violence and crime committed by terrorists and militants in syria not that another attempt at adopting a tough resolution against syria has failed what do you expect the international community to do in order to exert pressure on damascus. i believe that october fifth two thousand and eleven when russia and china blocked the un resolution was a historic day and i hope it will be remembered the fact that russia and china use their veto for the good of the people has enabled us to feel for the first time
that there is a different force in the world one that stands for justice neutrality culture and civilization and this forest stepped onto the international stage to stand equal to western power i personally believe that the future belongs to the east to russia and china it is a crucial moment in history. when a new force has emerged to say to the west you are wrong and the west is definitely a problem because its leader share a colonialist attitude not only regarding syria but toward the entire region. what do you think the international community will do next. i don't think the international community has many options a new force supporting reform and pluralism in syria has appeared in the international arena that's the path we follow the majority of laws that should have been passed are now adopted work to amend the constitution is underway we're moving forward towards reform and pluralism the problem is that some states fund and arm
terrorist groups operating in our towns and villages this makes ordinary people's lives very difficult and puts them in real danger the position of the western countries encourages these terrorist groups. that you recently visited and the russian authorities assured you again the dialogue was the only way out of the crisis that syria finds itself in when you invite only opposition forces or even public representatives to dialogue in which all levels and sides of the syrian population could participate would be one of the how we did invite them i personally met with a number of opposition representatives and so did many members of the syrian government when we suggested that they should participate in the dialogue some accepted this proposal and others didn't syria doesn't have just one opposition but many opposition movements representatives of most of these movements were present at joint conferences and a consultation meeting chaired by mr for rukh. while others ignored it i don't
understand what reforms they want to see without entering dialogue we share russia and china's view that it's impossible to move forward without dialogue the path of discussion is the path of reform the alternative is blood spilling civil war and into religious clashes and this isn't at all what syrian peace. it's up to the syrian opposition to protest against foreign interference the opposition should participate in dialogue with the goal of reform and building a new better syria it shouldn't listen to those who would turn it against dialogue with the government the met the national council was established and stumble what do you expect from this organization if it gets international recognition would you expect something similar to the events in libya if they emphasize is made on protecting civilians could this be used as a pretext for a military operation or international interference. in the i believe that's all in
the past a thousand people cannot speak for twenty three million syrian citizens i am speaking on behalf of many opposition activists who are syria patriots and they say that most members of this council belong to the muslim brotherhood these people don't represent syria or its people how can you position yourself as a representative of the syrian people when you've spent the last thirty years living in paris it just doesn't work that way and i don't think they will share a future with the people of syria has fallen with the armed forces plate obvious still united with them and in most of the mouth of the alabama both the armed forces and the state are united all these rumors are being framed up like the case of the knob hosni two weeks ago i gave an interview to the b.b.c. i was mainly asked how could i protect women's rights without appearing on satellite channels to defend. me who was allegedly tortured and killed by syrian security forces i have no doubt that yousafzai not al hosni on t.v.
and confirmed she was safe and sound so all the rumors about her were a lie today lies in the media have gone beyond common sense some arab television channels have lost all shame and professionalism but the almighty allah shows them what they are doing thanks to allah the truth speaks for itself every day. something delays of the u.n. gives them as leaders time to improve things in the country will the midges presence across the country be peeled back on the we would mind of a security forces mission ended today do you know what i heard from my relatives in homs who phoned me at eleven pm last night they said fifty five people representing different religious communities had been kidnapped in just one day there abducting people of various creeds in order to sow sectarian hatred in homes and what are we as a responsible government expected to do to safeguard the security of citizens what would you do in our place would you just abandon these people or would you send law
enforcers to fight the terrorists you'd better address this question to those who are arming the gangs and seeding evil in our country that doesn't mean we should give up our campaign against corruption stop government reform or revolutionary change in the spheres of culture and education our people are demanding all of this and it's necessary for serious prosperity but terror and direct or indirect western support for terror is impeding reform while the positions of russia and china are stimulating that they're giving the syrian people a chance and helping them follow the path of change so that syrians can have better lives in their own country. some analytical articles in the western press said that the situation in many parts of syria including the town of homs looks very much like a civil war do have the chairs. in the yes i do we who are representatives of various communities religions and ethnic groups live together in arms we've been
living as one family throughout history syria is a diverse country it's the cradle of three world religions our main task was to continue living in love and peace the united states to use its veto right fifty times to deprive the palestinians of their legitimate right to create a state on their land isn't that a violation of human rights eleven thousand inmates are lead. wishing in presence of the occupying regime in this way this state is trying to dismember the region into small mando ethnic and mana religious states this is its plan look what's happened in sudan and what's happening in libya and iraq our peoples and our land are in their sights all this is aimed against civilization culture and identity even when we build democracy we build our own arab democracy based on our own religious cultural and civilisational values of which we're proud i don't want to be a western man's replica i am proud of being arab i like being an arab woman whether
muslim or christian i am an arab woman first i speak arabic and i want my culture my mind and my clothes to reflect my national identity while the west wants us to become fascist smells of what they call western democracy we the arabs can hardly make ends meet while israel dominates the middle east all this is well known we realize this looming threat and so do the residents of our own and those who so discord you've seen the photos extremists zealots and terrorists whatever crimes they commit will never end lest our people support but that abducted within a shop on the political and media advisor to the syrian president thank you very much for your interview. thank you very much i would like to thank once again the leadership and people of russia for their wise decision that contributes to the cause of defending syria and its people let me express my gratitude on their behalf this helps the syrian people to return their genuine arab look to our region thank you once again worship. a short one.

going to have more incentive really try to take away or slow you're just taking your feet from straightaway when you give your heart and soul or something doesn't work so she is just just boy. they're good men spend. it all england's rugby chase have promised a robust review of the size performance at the world cup by lost nine hundred twelve to france in the last day on saturday with a blues getting tries three vincent plaque and mixing the england did make a game of it in the second half but the damage was already done by the time ben foden mark coauthor went over france taking nine hundred twelve is not yet playing martin johnson will step down as a result he's been in charge since two thousand and eight and given his country to world cup glory and think that is then three. now in other news for anyone sebastian vettel is on course to claim a second straight world championship today he was quickest in qualifying and started on pole for today's japan grand prix and the second twenty down to fifty
three red bull driver needs to finish in the top ten for ten years will crank button leads the race at the moment i'm mathematically jenson button is the any man can catch beth of the five races that but it's. practically impossible for that to happen and vettel will also win the world crown but fails to finish among the points today. will keep you posted now in football scotland have kept alive day chances of reaching next summer's european championships of the one there when. craig mchale smith from brighton and hove albion school in the only goal there and scotland in the second place one point ahead of the czech republic. scotland next face. and have to match the result of the czechs in their final game against the way to qualify. by the stadium which will host the two thousand and twelve final has been officially open the national sports complex in kiev was packed with sixty thousand spectators for a special celebration to mark the occasion colombia saying it's clear it was the
star attraction enough forty minute concert at the stadium cost four hundred seventy million dollars to build and host a friendly between ukraine and germany on november eleventh. meanwhile logistics will be one of the most difficult problems for russia and hosting the twenty eighteen world cup that is according to many offspring marketing director david we caught up with a german in moscow and our first question was one close to his heart that of investment. if i would have one million of your nine to spend the three most important points for this ball player so to speak the legs in the water infrastructure let me see the stadium and about the brain to manage i would spend that one million euro dollar into brains. might be something very interesting and very very let me say exciting but i think
in terms of sustainability of the lycra is that he's a little question about whether this is a feasible approach i don't know for sure it would see in five years whether this cup is the wrong choice things have shifted by the think you know you have more scope looks to have full consent because both they're well known or the world meanwhile but these other clubs have to build a brand that is quite critical if you can make it happen with one huge difference fail which given you a lot of that you see press coverage. than what you are always very close with how mentions the cities of other major cities is a very old club with now a shot behind his soul and that is perhaps a blessing process that this club which has a name already helpful here syndicates now with the new money coming in all of the middle east is getting up to speed it will be at least to a contender for a while if the champions get to that point if you look at how different clubs and
other clubs which have a lot of money all of a sudden available they have to put this kind of brand and i think that's an uphill battle and that's very good difficult to accomplish. if you look at the huge country of russia and i think that could be a challenge to finally in the quarter specifically from europe in one place to the other and also between the games there are three four days are they staying over here or they're flying in and out so i would be very interested. we see the system of the plan would be groovy in the future how to do with crowds and i don't know how this will how this would work because for me as a german look at russia i know moscow is good for no votes and people support but then when you are getting a little bit more support the distance between cities there that's for me something which is more or less emotional infrastructural i think it through a lot of work but i'm convinced that also it will come through thought it would be a great show for them to support people all over the world some interesting views
