what you know if you live from moscow on pm in the russian capital i'm marina joshua a joint anglo japanese weapons research pact and a permanent british naval presence in asia those are the first fruits of british prime minister david cameron's strongest yet push to hawk his country's weapons to you weren't having departed from japan is now in indonesia calling for that nation to be allowed to buy weapons and ball that just a decade after the country was embargoed by london itself or using british jets to bomb civilians accompanied by a red arms dealers representing the u.k.'s oldest and biggest weapons makers cameron is currently on a five day tour across the continent and for the u.k.'s are reports aside from standing to make an explosive profit there's also the benefit of irritating china. selling weapons is quickly becoming what britain does best prime minister david

cameron unashamedly townson the u.k.'s military hardware only he calls it flying the flag for britain it's seeking to become only the second country other than america to trade arms with japan not only big business but the chance for a crucial foothold in what's clearly the place to be business perfectly predictable result of the shifting of focus of american attention in the attention of much of the world to the asia pacific region as china obviously continues to be an economic powerhouse and and even india and other countries in the region for him to actually become more economically dominant i think with that comes the intended attention from the militaries of the u.s. and the u.k. and other countries america's recently announced plans to station two thousand marines in australia hoping to exert influence in the region china says isn't theirs to meddle in and britain could soon join them part of its defense deal with

or the politics of the nuclear industry or. geopolitical concerns of india's prime minister manmohan singh has taken away the licenses of three ngo's and put seventy seven more on the global watch list of the key believes american n.g.o.s are helping fund anti-nuclear protesters while such a is not illegal the action reflects government anger i what delhi sees as interference in india's internal affairs and energy policy in a recent interview to the american journal science prime minister singh said the atomic energy program has got us into difficulties because these n.g.o.s mostly i think based to the us still appreciate the need for country to increase energy and . the protesters deny that they're receiving funds from america the small amount of
5:23 am
money that we need comes from our own people the fisherman on the market. but according to information from the indian home ministry released to parliament last year one third of indian ngo funding actually came from the united states india has maintained that developing a peaceful nuclear energy program will only help the country meet its growing energy needs and decrease its dependence on foreign sources of energy but other countries see india's growing energy needs as a potential business opportunity while the u.s. says it's got no objection to india civilian nuclear program u.s. and western firms will be keen that they win the business rather than russian firms . in the last few years india has access to the international nuclear market but india has this great market but billions of dollars. while protesters may be simply opposed to nuclear power some of the money behind
5:24 am
them may be motivated by very different reasons and power of american business interests to keep others out of one of the world's fastest growing energy markets preassure either r t india. and crossing to the world of business really of course is all the latest now but a report is addressing parliament as we speak so how have the markets been reacting to his assessment of the year well basically it's actually hard to say because the the reaction has been quite modest really although the assessment of the economic specially assessment he started from was indeed quite positive and started off by boasting that russia has completely overcome the consequences of the crisis of two thousand and two thousand and nine and that g.d.p. is back to pre-crisis levels and that russia actually has a g.d.p. growth the highest level of g.d.p. growth along the g eight countries are cyclical what's going on in the russian market and it's mostly positive i have to say would be nice except part of percent
5:25 am
but it's really driven by what's going on in europe where the spanish and italian bond yields are going down more than ten basis points we're gets about a bit later so the my say there's an interesting quote from. gazprom is down half a percent but if it has been talking about the hydrocarbon industry saying that there's a revolution potentially looming in shale gas and that russian companies should start preparing for this revolution d.t.b. among financial stocks is also a percent in line with the market point six percent the potash make a large part of making the world as reported net profit increase sixty four percent to. to move over to another story there's no i.p.o. potentially coming up on the russian market and russia's third largest mobile phone operator megaphone may consider listing in the foreseeable future quoting two very misty daily writes this is likely to happen if billionaire owners had
