news and comment live from moscow this is. washington says that the fortune plot to kill the saudi ambassador to the u.s. will further isolate iran with the allegations expected to increase sanctions on tehran to iranians were charged over trying to hire members of a mexican drug cartel to carry out the attack something to run dismissed as a comedy show well for more details on this i'm now joined by our he's going to she's in washington so america seems to be piling more pressure on iran. exactly the u.s. aims to unite the world against iran that's what we hear from the officials here they are talking about the need to completely isolate iran in the international community vice president joe biden for example said the u.s. action against iran could go beyond sanctions but added that we are not going there yet that's a quote we're getting reports that the u.s. might raise the issue at the u.n. security council and generally a lot of tough words in washington these days the u.s.
12:02 pm
administration strongly believes in the case against this iranian born man also a u.s. citizen months or are both who's accused of trying to plot the assassination of the saudi ambassador in washington the u.s. attorney general said the man admitted being directed by quote high ranking you raney and officials and on these grounds washington says it will hold the reigning government accountable for the plot to kill the master also the u.s. is accusing iran of conspiring to stage two bombings at the israeli embassy and the saudi embassy in washington denies all of the about all of the above saying it's a childish game that you are so is so playing possibly to divert attention from their domestic problems this is what they're saying meaning the ongoing protests across the u.s. but the saudis on the other hand have taken the allegations seriously and have thing u.s. authorities for for preventing the alleged assassination attempt and going to what's washington claiming of the. assassination why would iran want to sussan the
12:03 pm
ambassador the saudi ambassador. that's a good question bill very rarely anyone here is touching upon the possible motive iran might have had for trying to kill the saudi official how you know how iran's could benefit from it considering all the fallout that would would have come with such an action would they actually do something like that something that seems to be to service to the radiance in the first place but that question is really asked here and. take the accusations brought up at the by the u.s. justice department at face value and the main question you hear in the mainstream media is will the u.s. retaliate or not there's quite a few people in washington who ruled for retaliation in the meantime officials say all options are on the table not clear how far this will go but up on the news i constantly hear phrases like we need to step up activities to undermine the government of iran we need to stop the operation with this with saudi arabia and
12:04 pm
israel and that's what the u.s. will most likely be doing on tuesday going to thanks very much indeed for that update from all studios in washington. voice of russia host and it says that the u.s. doesn't have enough evidence to wood's iran at the moment with american public with the american public not ready for a military to the alleged plot. so far the accusations aimed towards iran are somewhat unfounded although court documents to suggest that months or. it was an iranian american with ties allegedly inside of the ukrainian military though we have not seen firm evidence of this to be the case but we are a war weary public here in the united states and the possibility that we could have had a terrorist attack in another terrorist attack occurred here on our soil is certainly disheartening right now i think it's just simple magic retaliation as it were be it in the form of sanctions or some other form but i don't think the american public
12:05 pm
is ready to see a military retaliation against iran at least not till we've seen some more evidence of their complicit involvement. on a website called what you think about the thwarted iranian plot uncovered by the u.s. so let's have a look on screen see the results so far more than hall five you believe that it was nothing more than an american point to smear its enemy it's less than a quarter think the story is just the tip of the iceberg with more revelations to come and ten percent say it was orchestrated by all the rest of the events just the way from washington officials to boost the careers you could see your point of view your view at all t. dot com. exercise promise to putin strengthen russia's partnership with china during his high profile visit to the world's fastest growing economies came together to share common interests and commercial goals and the dominance of the west deals with seven billion u.s.

u.s. politician as a single global. problem is not only for the world economy but you know the america's economy as well because it leads. to discipline. it is so good when it comes to the e.u. vladimir putin said that greece is a big problem that it could be resolved if countries that weren't afraid to take action he said of russia and china need the reform of international financial systems and that the brits well should play a bigger role on the world stage and. i think it's time to talk about reforming existing institutions first of all i mean global financial institutions such as the international monetary fund and world bank and here we agree with the role of the brics countries in those organizations must be given the growing importance of all countries economies another important issue here was energy corp lattimer put an end his chinese counterpart so there are all issues and disagreements were resolved when it comes to russia supply of oil when it comes to gas negotiations are still
12:08 pm

12:10 pm
economy is in bad shape. i am not sure i mean you know people talk about china. or the global economy but we are indeed in the global economy china. very much dependent on what is happening in the global economy and if u.s. and european consumers are on a cool. chinese rules then china has a problem and so far we haven't not seen the shift from exports to internal consumption as the driver off chinese growth. chinese growth it has of course being very rapid and there are question marks over the future but nevertheless it is showing signs of becoming a superpower we've heard all about his recent military expenditure is ambitions they're also stretching as far as space now if he put russia and china together now
12:11 pm
could we actually see a change in the existing well the world. she already clearly yes needs some respect so you can compare what is happening now to a fairly dramatic time secret decision in the u.s. you know iran nine hundred seventy two to reach to china as a way to. you know break free from. you know old world balance between the soviet union and the united states there is certainly an attempt to achieve status. obviously there also main leave very many issues that separate russia and china so the seas are not yet beginning go through beautiful french pieces there reproach meant based on

12:14 pm
celebrations throughout last night and they continue today to kill early in the jabalya refugee camp in gaza so that is why you are hearing some voices in israel some voices of concern that the capture of one soldier is going to be something that is encouraged on the palestinian side because the points one soldier is the ticking of the high at this moment there are more than eight thousand prisoners who are currently being held in israeli jails among them are many women and children some three hundred children many of the prisoners are also there without having been tried and now there are some prisoners who are currently undergoing a hunger strike they protesting against the general conditions in the prisons we've been hearing from human activists who say that particularly the political prisoners they have basic rights like bathing that are being denied to them among the prisoners who are to be released a fair number will return to the gaza strip ever since gilad shalit was taken hostage five years ago there have been heavy restrictions on goods both coming in and out of gaza. an international chorus of disapproval has hit ukraine over the
