exude promise is the exceptional of the tutsis debility you'll business in russia will come to the small regions for more information. existence and you. welcome back you're with r t here's a look at the top stories hopes fatal finding any more survivors from russia's oil rig disaster with dozens still missing two days after the drilling platform sank in icy waters that's as the last of the fourteen crewmembers found alive are about to arrive back on land the. signs of fracture within the syrian opposition while some welcomed the government's decision to let observers into the country other slammed the deal with the arab league they are instead calling for an arab military intervention to protect civilians while the syrian authorities persist there
fighting extremist armed groups. and three months since the start of the empty corporate protest in the u.s. the autobahn movement is still gaining momentum that's despite police having handedness and some critics warning the rallies would not make it into the winter. while next we speak to the former chief u.n. nuclear watchdog to discuss the security situation in and around north korea and how death may disturb the shaky stability in the region. well i'm joined by mr hans blix from stockholm mr blix chaired the international atomic agency for energy agency for sixteen years and was the head of the u.n. inspections team in iraq prior to the second iraqi war mr blix it's great to have
you with us sir now i'd like to start with i say latest news came young male who during whose seventeen year old rule north korea has emerged as a nuclear state has died of a heart failure now his son is the next national leader what do we know about him are things going to stay pretty much the same morris' regional security under threat how vigorously will he have push for nuclear weapons. well we are generally rather it ignorant about the. architecture of the power building in north korea. but the change has been underway for some time but of course with kim jung un. group didn't figure is. there's always a risk in such a structure that there can be changes. i think it is important to the
outside world. does not make them for us because they will feel themselves in a situation of weakness and then the threats from the outside lives that makes them provocative for the last few years iran was number one nuclear enemy for the united states do you expect maybe a shift of interest from iran to north korea or does a country need to have oil as well to justify that much attention from the west. no i think both places are of great importance in the north korean situation first of all we know that within artillery range for all of north korea so even without nuclear weapons the situation there would be a risky one and if north korea were provoked at here there could be a risk also of encouraging their. forces in japan i don't see that
now. but that would be a risk in the case of iran. on the other hand we see that already. they work in iran to develop it capacity. has increased threat enormously and there is a great arms race going on and we hear who works in israel and in the united states saying that they should bomb iran others say that they are all the nuclear installations are and that it is meaningless. to the presidential candidates that he thinks work for a regime change but i don't think explained whether he would like the a regime change to be the half. or the iraqi model but also the service is very similar similar to what happened in iraq.
could we be seeing the new iraqi scenario unfolding here as far as iran goes well there are some similarities in the. escalation of the language and the threats. that we had in the case of iraq and now having case of iran on the other hand we must remember that in the case of iraq they talked about. weapons that in fact did not exists. today they are talking about iranian intentions of may or may or may not exist. but the difference is that iran certainly has a lot of nuclear installations iraq did not have that but in your own opinion is iran of any imminent threat to any nation at this point. i don't think so really and it is true that your argument in the dod has come out
in that area very bad language about wiping israel off the map of the world but i think most people with me think that he is really talking to the arab street he has one to one to the deal stab allies arab states that have supported the united states. iraq iran does not have a track record of aggression in fact it was iraq that attacked iran so i don't see an immediate threat from iran but i can understand that israelis are nervous but the u.s. and israel maintain the latest i ate a report provides very strong evidence that iran is seeking any nuclear weapon. here's the question do you think iran has a nuclear weapon no i think in nobody really thinks they have a nuclear weapon and i think one must read that report rather carefully what
they say is that they see some evidence that could be explained if they were dealing with a weapon or a mere weapon and that there seems on the other evidence that it's very hard to explain unless they were working towards a weapon. but there have not said that they established that iraq or actually intends to do it so they might stop short of their weapons well judging from your experience how should this intelligence be treated and how far can actually i a go in checking the credibility of such intelligence well they do it or not the average sit here in the iran. it's a big country and many places can be hidden so i think there are limits to what they can find out but that doesn't really affect what the outside world should do in my view they must continue to talk to iran and to persuade iran that they will
not need an a nuclear weapon nor do they need any enrichment capability. if some european says the u.k. and france and germany started such talks and they have been expanded to also russia and china and the united states are participants in it and i think that is the wise road to go they have offered iran some good since and i think they could offer a more things there is also on the way a big conference about a nuclear weapon free zone in the middle east which will take place in helsinki next year and all rigidly the idea was to get the israel to do away with this nuclear weapons but i think if this conference were to try those to do away with israeli nuclear weapons and the uranium enrichment capability and get the
other states in the middle east to come along then there might be a more hopeful future you know many believe that iran actually may be willing to get to a point one is able to produce a nuclear weapon but doesn't actually do it unless it's security establishment is that a likely strategy. it is possible though from the case of israel that they do not admit that they have nuclear weapons they say that they will not be the first three introduce nuclear weapons in the middle east maybe one day the iranians will say that we also will not be the first to introduce nuclear weapons in the middle east and maintain the situation ambiguity. but i think it would be better if all the parties came to the conclusion that they should have neither nuclear weapons nor a richmond capability and israelis would be in were secure. there would be a warning now that say saudi arabia and egypt might also go for richmond's and
iran certainly should be nervous that is aliased might bomb them just as israel did iraq in the 1980's syria in two thousand and seven what is the likelihood actually that israel may be at this point now that it has isolated itself from turkey also from egypt it has disappointed sarkozy it has disappointed obama very strong rhetoric going on back and forth between iran and israel what is the likelihood that it has become more dangerous and maybe it will actually show for the first time that if the us has it does have nuclear arsenal and use it probably too long iran well it's hard to judge i mean some people think that this kind of language and threats by their use individuals in israel and also by hawks in the nie the say that it was the rain ians from their present course. however i am somewhat doubtful that one can scare away from.
those i think carrots are better. by staying away from. richmond. saying there will be a point where i will be convincing israel not to use its nuclear nuclear arsenal i think the israelis are very well aware of the game its weapons and even when they talk about bombing iran there is nothing to suggest that they will use nuclear weapons for it and i very much that if anything came to a war that no nuclear weapons would be used and it would also be very bad if they attacked the civilian nuclear reactors that iran. but any kind of attack. is. in the middle east. sitting in. their
sons they will have a counterattack of course. in the united states in the war so it's a terrible fire that they are playing with. and one last question why do you think iran is so reluctant to accept all the incentives offered to them by the international community just not simply enough. well it may be a question of pride also i think that the western states that have talked to them some sometimes have sounded rather high handed they have said that if you will suspend your to richmond we may be willing to sit down with you and that is so the neo colonialist neil colonialist told they are a proud people and then the others are and i think that the. they will have to talk to them say important partner pull important states state
that they are and to discuss with them what would they gain by abandoning enrichment they can gain a lot and i do not see that they have much advantage on the richmond because they can import the fuel they need from russia or from other places they have only two nuclear power reactors this country sweden where i'm standing now we have ten and we imported richer a new message. it is cheaper so i don't see iran would loose very much by doing away with it there may be a lot of pride in this mr blix thank you very much for this interview.
the hopes fade of finding any more survivors from russia's oil rig disaster was dozens still missing two days after the drilling platform sank in icy waters that's as a warehouse of the fourteen crewmembers found alive are about to arrive back home life . signs a fracture within the syrian opposition while some welcomed the government's decision to let observers into the country other slammed the deal with the arab league they aren't. calling for an arab military intervention to protect civilians while the syrian authorities persist there fighting extremist armed groups. and three months since the start of the anti-corporate protest in the us the occupy movement is still gaining momentum and that's despite police heavy handedness and

this is not your regular soccer ball it's much heavier and has special features for the visually impaired now the key to this game is to actually hear the direction of the ball and when a player kicks at all throws it it makes a sound like this. this is gold ball and along with fluids they make up two different events at the modern paralympic games russia failed to qualify for the london games from the latest european championship in turkey where a coin toss decided their fate after the match against the hosts thirty ended in a goal this draw. which we all knew that it would be hard to qualify for the london paralympics who knows what would have happened if we reached the semifinals but they decided to throw a coin after our withdrawal with turkey instead of a penalty shoot out which is not very sportsmanlike so it's
a pity these guys know that they are strong enough to compete with the best however the luck of the draw at the european championship in syria is not the only factor hampering russia's efforts lack of support and little to no funding from football authorities and respect to government sports apartments adds to the already obstacle filled lives of these courageous athletes use the classroom sometimes we have to pitch in for uniforms and even some of the trips to competitions like the latest presidents cup for example we had our last training camp and so much it would have to play for our own way there as well as well hopefully the team's financial woes will soon be over but it's apparent that money or lack of it will never become a barrier for the guys who are not used to giving up that goes for me to live there are a good boy still doesn't have an official status within the sport of stories but over the last seven years his team became a five time champions of russia and the base of the national squad. a month off to

powerhouses of blind football with success still largely dependent on individual enthusiasm and rare acts of support among cos through party must go. through recent success for the future now some tennis news and venus williams is it done for the australian open in january because of health problems the former number one has pulled out of the s.p. classic easing in which is being held in the run up to the first grand slam of the year and she's suffering from so groans disease which affects the mean system thing is to slip to one hundred three in the world and had received the strain i've been which begins on january the nine saying. well i'm with some ice hockey action russia's minor hockey league select have had a poor start to their american tall north dakota college side the fighting city thrashing the red stars five one in the end the american players took advantage of three disciplines russian that fit as they scholes pray of their goals on the
