states we are expecting the leaders gathered for the apec summit to send another push to send an extra message to the european countries to try to find to step up their attempts to improve the financial situation so this is an extra message important message that we're expecting to hear a lot of about here on the ground in the next few days to come even though the talk the talk and the substance of the effect summit is usually traditionally economic issues certainly political issues are surfacing we've been hearing because of the situation in syria where anti-government clashes have been really attracting so many headlines as we have heard from u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton saying that the united states believes that the syrian president should step down regarding syria we discuss the ongoing and escalating violence perpetrated by the assad government against its own people our position is clear we are supporting peaceful transition assad has lost his legitimacy to rule and he should step down well russia on the other hand believes

dose of the draft. five minutes past the hour here in moscow prime minister silvio berlusconi's decade long grip on power could come to an end within just a few hours that's if italy's lower house of parliament approved the vast new austerity package the prime minister's seat though won't remain vacant for long with a veteran if you're a crappy looking set to take the baton from bulles county our correspondent sarah furthur is in rome with more on the build up to the vote. the m.p.'s we've been speaking to here said italy is now absolutely desperate to send a very strong signal that they're able to get the situation under control now if the measures get that a preview today that would then of course pave the way for the resignation of prime minister berlusconi as he promised. the man he's being paid at the moment to take the top spot is. he now he's not only a respected economist here in the country but he's also the former commissioner and
10:07 am
as we've seen in greece with the appointments the top spot before me e.c.b. official you know very montes if you're in a system inside and out that appointment would certainly please brussels but there is concern about whether that would gain public support because there is a question mark really of whether an unelected government is going to have credibility what you're seeing now is an extension of brussels in the sense that you really that is what's happening again the m.p.'s that we're speaking to was saying that this take me quite government now is really good it is pushing through these harsh measures just getting them off the ground because they've been long promised and have failed to materialize we seen rioting in the past in the country over these measures now that public support as he said is absolutely vital because implementing these are scary few measures having a new head coming up with a caretaker government is not going to be enough certainly if everything goes ahead this weekend without any glitches in italy will have one of battle but they still
10:08 am
have a war on their hands and it's a war that the entire. now has to face and that's just how you bring long term sustainable solutions to kick start stagnating economies like italy. well i mean peter mandelson the former british secretary of state says it's incredible the market pressure on greece and italy to ask their respective leaders when millions of protesters in those countries could not. well what we've seen recently in the year is there is some government not as strong as all those not taking the decisive action that they need to take frankly not getting on top of the events now their elected government to stall the difficult for democratic machine reach a peace boost simply to take out. a government that's been democratically elected and actually what we've seen certainly in the case i think of greece and italy
10:09 am
we've seen the bond markets being able to achieve what normal democratic means has not been able to do in that is to put those countries to get the governments they need at this particular time no i don't attach any value judgement to that it's merely an observation that it needs circumstances we've seen. breaking rather more effectively than ordinary democracy. and as the euro crisis continues to chip away at confidence in the european union's leadership max and stacey are back to cause their eyes over why speculators are so eager to see the crisis rage on report coming your way at five thirty g.m.t. here's what you can expect. every time the euro zone creates a dollar or a euro instead they create a hundred euros in naked short selling i'll never going to win that war but the fact is that the tail is wagging the economic and financial dog around the world and we're totally powerless against it in transcript ocracy with unlimited credit

financial workers investors are making a sharp turn to the east where china keeps on rising in the ranks of the global economic stage beijing's night however is not being met with enthusiasm in the united states. and. assesses the attitudes. we know we. maybe we can see most easily. each waking. moments. gen zack i'm going to get warm and go. change the future you have to yikes ok let's just get right down to it shall we should we be afraid of china. well what other place in washington d.c. is chinatown to find out i don't think we have to be afraid of china but i do think that we should be concerned well concerned might be the right word for it and
10:15 am
angelina isn't the only one a much twenty in love and b.b.c. full shows that many in the west aren't exactly thrilled about china gaining more economic steam in the span of just five years negative attitudes towards china have skyrocketed with france germany italy the u.k. and the u.s. on happy at the thought of china nipping at their heels and for the us nowhere is that clear that in the race to the white house china is on almost every dimension cheated this is no longer a time for us to sit back and say we're going to let them steal our jobs we need to do is stop enriching china with our money i want to beat china i want to go to war with china and make america the most attractive place in the world to do business woah woah whoa does it have to be us or them and is anyone buying it the world's changing you know so like the fact the fact that like china's economy
10:16 am
is modernizing. isn't the reason why our economy is doing poorly right now. and so it's just a straw man when. presidential candidates bring that up but i think even in a business sense that it can all make sense was countries to just work with china as any other country so yeah i don't know where it comes from from the u.s. about china well there you have it it seems china is the new kid on the economic block and it's up to the u.s. and go west to see how they deal with reporting from washington and i can say oh i see. caroline helpmann from the occidental college in los angeles says the washington feels the need to paint china as a new evil empire. china becomes this very convenient target we need an enemy right the cold war is over terrorism doesn't provide a concrete enemy for the united states to confront someone we hear these republican
10:17 am
competitors talking about china as an enemy i do think that it fills that notion of having something to oppose in order to prove the resilience of nationalism and again i find i take issue with that nationalism but at the same time i think it's good for the u.s. to have competitors it's never good for a global superpower to be the only one at the top of perceived because then they act with impunity and i believe at various points in u.s. history we have seen the evidence of that i think having china in the mix will be very positive for social political relations. if you want to not see political correctness may have many stopping to think before opening their mouths these days but hasn't gone too far that's the question laurie how finished known as the resident has been putting the people in new york. a recent poll indicated that people are starting to feel like political correctness
10:18 am
is having a negative impact them for society how do you feel about it this week let's talk about that being carried overboard people were getting a little crazy with being having to worry about every word they say whether it's actually politically correct or not if you live in this country you should be politically correct because this is your country what does that mean that is so you have to censor what you say you should think about what you say you should you should take time to use the correct words before you say something that you don't mean and i mean we've got thing in england where comedians have been holed up in political correctness where i think you just got to realize specially the comedy. you know everyone's going to be offended by something and i just think there's always going to be someone who looks for something to complain about my generation we don't really care that we just laugh it's funny but it just depends if like generations accosting if you're talking smelly people then yeah respect even if you know you don't completely think it's necessary it's different when you're young but
10:19 am
when you start getting a bit older you realize but sometimes what comes out of your math is not a pearl. it's refreshing to see somebody like chris christie from new jersey cause here that speaks his mind regardless of what the consequences are versus always being worried and people are going to think what the poll number show for you rather be offended in at least have the truth yes very much so but they're not you feel like political correctness is having a negative effect on society the bottom line is it's probably just going to keep becoming more and more prevalent. now twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow seven people including five policemen killed in a suicide blast and shootout in kazakhstan you have taught us. officials said that a robber raided a weapon store now killing a security guard in the process before trying to escape in a car several policemen were shot dead in the subsequent pursuit and when police
10:20 am
eventually tried to arrest the man he blew himself but the blast claimed. the incident has been officially classified as a terrorist attack it comes just two weeks after twenty explosions in the west of the country for which an islamic militant group did claim responsibility. let's get some other headlines for you from around the world in the world update here on our team syria has been suspended from the arab league until a peace plan is implemented to stop the bloodshed there a member states of also called to pull their ambassadors from damascus and implement economic and political sanctions the decision came out an emergency session in cairo which discussed the masses its inability to end the eight month long violent crackdown on civil protesters overwhelming majority of member states supported the move with only eleven on yemen and syria itself voting against. iran has been rocked by a powerful explosion of. about forty kilometers outside of tehran at least fifteen

10:22 am
know this time we're on the black sea coast not just down in the south it's a place bustling with tourists who come here to get their dose of relaxation under the sun but now this region is also attracting hundreds of thrill seekers such as artie's tonga. slowly the old soviet resorts on russia's black sea coast are becoming centers for very modern water sports throughout the week hundreds of children and adults have been competing here in the black sea cup windsurfing trophy and it's hoped that with the right support this region could become a real center for water sports. it's the black sea cup in southern russia a waters full of jellyfish the sea full of waves and the wind whips the air with salty spray and that's just what everyone here has come for. children and adults of travel from all over russia to show their skills and sharing the growing water
