or face a collapse that's after greece admitted failing to reduce its deficit to the agreed level despite a relentless austerity drive. next on r.t. follow what's going on in syria first hand from someone who's got the presidency here as r.t. talks to his political and press advisor next. as there was a view of 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 block the resolution criticizing syria what information did syrian authorities give russia to support its position. i thought
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 the 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. but you recently visited moscow 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 all local 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 an estimable 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 mob and 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 played obvious still united with them and in most of the mouth of the alabama both the armed forces and the state are united avi's rumors are being framed up like the case of zainab 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 you saad zeinab 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 managers present across the country be peeled back on the bus and we wouldn't mind if 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 them they are 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 with 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 you have the chairs. 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 in 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 lang. wishing in presence of the occupying regime in this way this state is trying to dismember the region into small model 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 a doctor 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.

tackles as the springboks joy for the want to base their top rate for south africa he spoke to peter to various step down from his post after the match. guys are great. there's nothing that can replace the thought of over over over it's going through the minds of the divas oh no and when it is expected this is. actually no no no the really good mood in the dreams are not everything when i wite annoyed we didn't we put ourselves on lot of pressure but one thing that you know you can be counted age and you can you know try and it is effort in commitment from the group in every member of the attorney mind showed a lot about the guys so i'm very proud of the why you guys want to be on it because you know in general that you have to fall on the water when it's all we did away to australia in the semifinals are arch rivals. musial and who fought back against a determined argentina to win thirty three ten in oakland the all blacks struggles
to assert themselves in the first half as we know how to ask of a o's try to get on the plane this conversion gave the underdogs a shop seven six lead had their backs failed to score a first half try for the first time in a world cup match in twelve years but seven penalties from pretty way up who wore down the pimas four tries from kieren reed and brad made the call to find a safe however the victory was marred by a groin injury to fly off collin slight difference self-worth by start down poulter and twenty two year old aaron cruden came on after thirty three minutes but coach graham henry was still happy to reach his maiden semifinal. bloody amazing. right now as praise that guy was a target of football and yeah i thought by sides by particularly well. i just plays with the composure of our fellows they were under a lot of pressure to try and keep the. can play with
a lot of composure good said pace good game of football that is now down to mary has won his second title in two weeks after coming from a set down to beat defending champion rafael nadal at the japan eye open on the doll had sent murray crashing out of two majors this year and it looked like the world number two is about to fix him up and paid for the time after taking the first set six three but murray who won the title and open last week bounced back to level the match and took the deciding sets to love to see his fourth title of the season and the scot maintained his momentum to later when the doubles crown his brother jamie. one in beijing czech tamasha burdick also came from a set down to win the china rape and he lost to croatia american challenge them stormed back to take the next two six four six one it was bad it's the first time you know most two and a half it is gives them a much needed boost as push for next month's tour finals in london. while
i go to advance the overcame a second set collapse to beat and i have picked a bitch i mean gripping china open final the german fought back from four one down in the first set to level it at four rules despite needing treatment of twisting her knee but the pole finally clinched the set seven five after a grueling hour and twenty five minutes however petrovich then powered her way back to take the second sets to love the trade balance that finally gained the crucial brighton game minus the decider set six four on the second match point of a two line call it was a second straight victory for the twenty two year old and her biggest craving so far after her triumphing in take care last week and will not rise to number ten in the world rankings. football now in key midfielder you dish out golf missed rush's first training sessions since dick advocaat charges returned from their european qualifying victory in slovakia on friday the twenty eight year old engy play make errors recovery after receiving a knock in russia's pivotal one zero win in jelena that victory gave them
a two point lead ahead of island in group b. and a strong chance of automatic qualification for next summer's finals as the last game is at home to minimise and door on choose day. fellow midfielder north and defender alexander and you cough are suspended for that game after picking up yellow cards against slovakia. now the stadium which will host the euro two thousand and twelve final has been officially opened in ukraine to be unveiling of the only national sports complex in kiev a slightly modified the roof briefly catching fire lavish fireworks were the cause of the mine ablaze however known of the capacity crowd was seventy thousand people can't refer to see this headline in the show as a colombian singer shockey it up also recorded it vishal song at last year's world cup stadium cost four hundred seventy million dollars to build and i was to friendly between ukraine and germany on november the eleventh. and a charity football match has been held here in moscow to raise money for
a united nations program to help women and children the format chelsea. was the skipper for the visitors which included fellow talent who needed to be agile and young master old presidential aide arkady dvorkovich wore the captain's armband the host of the legend that's the sire tending of the goal the final score at the regional this temple. and finally with the recent high profile investment of billionaires in clubs such as angie chelsea managed to city in paris sandra aussie caught up with by a labor cusins marketing director michael shrink and we started by asking the brands to primo the multimillion dollar question about how he would invest in four or. if i would have one million of. them really the most important points for this small player so to speak the legs of the water infrastructure let
me see the stadium that is about the brain a miniature i would spend that one million euro dollar to brains. might be something very interesting and very very let me say exciting but the thing in terms of sustainability of lycra is that he's a little questionable whether this is a feasible approach i don't know for sure we'll see five years whether this cup is the wrong with things have shifted rather think you know you have more scope looks simply doesn't work there well north 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 for which given you a lot of let me see press coverage. i mean what you always very close with how measures the city is developing mentions it is a very old club with an hour behind here so that is perhaps
a blending process that this club which has a name already now for years indicates now with the new money coming all of the middle east is getting up to speed it will be a little iffy a contender for a while for champions get to that point look at how different clubs and other clubs which have a lot of money all of a sudden the fail approach they have to 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 and one place to be other and also between the games the other three four days they staying over here or they're flying in and out so i would be very. what the let me say the system of the plan would be even will be in the future to deal with the crowds and i don't know how this will how this will work at all because for me as
a german look at russia i know the moscow is going for the no vote st petersburg but then then you are getting a little bit lost of all the distance in between cities if that's for me something which is a more or less impression of infrastructure i think it will be a lot of work but i'm convinced that also the world cup two thousand and eight the rachel for football and the support from all of it all over the world. and that's all the sports i think. if if. if.
this week's top stories here on r t the spirit of the arab spring is coming to the u.s. so say protesters are angry at wall street greed and economic depression who are occupying the streets of american cities but the authorities have been cracking down on the demonstrations despite washington support for revolutions overseas. nineteen people were killed in one hundred fifty injured as thousands of christian protesters clashed with police on the streets of cairo the rides followed months of rising tension since the country's revolution between radical muslims and coptic christians including attacks on churches. let me take that back around to. the right. thanks for that. and the tensions really been my thing police and demonstrators clashed in the streets of athens. mates and the country cuts or collapse. the woman who western media reported as being butchered by bashar al assad's regime.
