welcome back you're watching aren't you live from moscow these are the top stories hopes fade of finding out a more survivors from russia's oil rig disaster with dozens still missing two days after the drilling platform sank in the icy waters that's as the last of the fourteen crewmembers found alive have just arrived back on land. signs of fracture within the syrian opposition while some welcomed the government's decision to let observers into the country either slammed the deal with the arab league there 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 corporate protest in the us the occupy movement is still gaining momentum that's despite police have a hand in this and some critics claiming the rallies would never last into the winter. there so we had lines next to speak to the former chief of the u.n. nuclear watchdog to discuss the security situation in and around north korea and how kim yong alles 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 had 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 who seventeen year old rule north korea has emerged as a nuclear state has died of a heart failure now his son king young and is the next national leader what do we know about him are things going to stay pretty much the same or a race where general security under threat how vigorously will his push for nuclear weapons. will we are generally rather dinner and about the. architecture of the power building in north korea. but the changes be underway for some time but of course we'll keep you on your. group didn't figure is . there's always a risk to in such a structure that 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 bites and make them provocative for the last few years iran was number one nuclear and before 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 cases 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. 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 in. their work in iran to develop a capacity we enrich uranium has increased threat enormously. and we here. in the united states saying that. iran others say that they are all the nuclear installations are and that it is meaningless. to the presidential candidates that he thinks for a regime change but i don't think he explained whether he would like the a regime change to be the half. or the iraq. but also there. is very some similar to what happened in iraq.
could we be seeing an 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 have in case of iran on the other hand we must remember that in case of iraq they talked about. weapons that in fact did not exists today they are talking about iranian intentions that 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 you. do it is true that you are merely dad has come out in
the area very bad language about israel wiping israel off the map of the world but i think most people think that he is really talking to the arab streets he has want to wanted to destabilize arab states that have supported the united states. iraq iran does not have a track record of aggression in fact there 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 seeking any nuclear weapon. here's the question do you think iran has a nuclear weapon no i think a 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 explain could be explained if they were dealing with a weapon or a mere weapon and that there seems on the other evidence that is very hard to explain unless they were working towards a weapon but they have not said that they established that iraq or actually intends to do it they might stop short of their weapons well judging from your experience how shit this intelligence be treated and how far can actually i.a.e.a. go in checking the credibility of such intelligence. well they do are not the average sit here in the iran and the 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 any nuclear weapon and nor do they need any enrichment capability and. 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 things and i think they could offer 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 originally 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 the 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 when it's able to produce a nuclear weapon but doesn't actually do it unless its security establishment is that a likely strategy. it is possible we know from the case of israel that they do not admit that they have nuclear weapons they say that they will not be the first to 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 more secure. there would be a warning now that says saudi arabia and egypt might also go for richmond's and
iran certainly should be nervous that these earliest might bomb them just as israel did iraq in the 1980's and 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 the various individuals in israel and also by hawks in the night that it was the iranians from their present course however i am somewhat doubtful that one can scare away from.
i think that carrots are better. that they can gain quite a lot by staying away from weapons enrichment. saying there will be a point where i will be convincing israel not to use its new nuclear arsenal i think the israelis are very well aware of their game its weapons and even when they talk about bombing iran the various 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 a very bad if they attacked the civilian nuclear reactors that iran has in bush or but in the kind of attack i think is. in the middle east the.
sitting in. their sons they will have a counter attack of course. in the united states in the war so it's a terrible fire that they're 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 is it 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 new cologne almost nil colonialist told they are a proud people and many others are and i think that the. they will have to talk to them that i say important partner for 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.
with much stronger for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune into cars a report on our. hopes fade of finding any more survivors from russia's or a disaster with a dozen still missing two days after the drilling platform sank in icy waters. signed a fracture where then there was syrian opposition while some welcomed the government's decision to let observers into the country others slammed the move and called for an air of military intervention and. despite critics warning the anti-corporate protests would not last winter and police have had in this three months on the occupy movement is still gaining momentum. as some had lines here in our t.v. sports next with.

courageous athletes use the plus for the sometimes we have to be seen for uniforms and even some of the trips to competitions like the latest presidents cup for example with those we had zero loss training camp and so much it would have to play for our own way there as well as well hopefully the teams 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 let's go straight to liberia devoid still doesn't have an official status within the sport of stories but over the last seventy years his team became a five time champions of russia and the base of the national squad who were a month off to my team defeated road runners up spain at the domestic international tournament and continued on beating the likes of england and germany over in greece the financing was suddenly cut and the team was inactive from time up until may so apparent victory was a futile from the beginning the passion of blind football is evidence the first
