north korea launches its controversial long range rocket it barely leaves the ground but fired up the u.n. security council to consider taking measures. the world body also sets its sights on syria a draft resolution on the table to enforce a cease fire and send an observer mission. incensed over immigration and raged at a europe france is a far right gains ground in the presidential race thing ready for force.
this is r.t. broadcasting live from moscow welcome to the program this point morning was that it was defying international norm north korea launched its controversial known range rocket but within moments it plummeted into the sea even so there's anger at the u.n. security council which is mulling over what action to take against the country for violating its resolutions russia maintains the north has a right to a peaceful space program that it should not go against the u.n. he's artie's that he's got. the launch was definitely part of a long running power game for pyongyang in which the rocket galaxy three was just the way it is nice to be played but no one expected to eventual extreme international concern was expressed by north korea's neighbors including china russia and japan as well as heavy criticism from the united states all agreed that the launch why awaits the u.n. a c.
resolution banning the country from testing long range missile technology yang ignored all i'm going to have with its plan which one spectacularly wrong there were fears that the launch was a cover for testing long range missile technology and if that were so it's backfired dramatically but most who insist that north korea does have the right to develop a peaceful space program and the issue should be settled through diplomatic means negative reaction from washington and loses tell law is stretched tensions of the region closer to breaking point than the launch itself washington's chipping its military focus from middle east to the asia pacific and is expanding its military presence with u.s. naval ships arriving in joint the new virus being announced all surgeon activity that makes china very unhappy experts believe that the and goal of the expansion is designed to challenge china's dominance and its own backyard. but a failed rocket launch has put stability on the korean peninsula in jeopardy u.s.
base regional analyst jim walsh faced a headstone when he talks. it did not go off course in a way where japan or south korea felt compelled to shoot it they aren't because i think they could have been a trip wire it could have caused you know the possibly best collation of. events that no one would want so it failed but it failed peacefully if you will the problem is as a consequence of this we're not going to have the six party talks we have presidential elections in the united states very hard for us president to restart negotiations or participate in them after what are perceived as provocative acts and there is no talking which means this is dangerous. but you can read more about north korea's failed rocket launch of my website r.t. dot com and tell us what you think also also waiting for them getting a new show we're going to start it's more on the popular than ever try to keep
americans safe. raising the stakes a record breaking poker tournament set to take place in the states something. down the. syria's fragile ceasefire is under close watch the u.n. security council considering a resolution to help enforce it envoy kofi annan says forces in the country have not yet fully complied the terms of the peace deal he's going to think and has been looking at the latest u.n. draft. it calls for all parties in syria to immediately cease all armed violence in all its forms that's a quote it would also authorize an initial deployment to syria of up to thirty on
armed un observers to monitor the sites compliance with kofi annan six point plan will hurt the syrian envoy to the united nations say that syria is ready to accept even servers and that it's determined to stick to the plan in the meantime the russian ambassador to the u.n. reiterated that russia is very supportive of the plan and does everything it can to make sure the cease fire holds is crucial for the monitors to be on the ground and to make sure that the new transgressions of the good of the caught in the state of the world and is going to be detected there's a lot of skepticism here in washington about kofi annan supplant the u.s. accept it the plan but it's almost at the designated it has doomed even before the plan had a chance to work but so far it has worked violence has reportedly stopped the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice this one described it as quote a positive step obviously implying that the ceasefire is not going to hold and
maybe not to miss rice with too many it's clear that the ball is now in the court of the syrian opposition the last thing we heard from them was that they were going to organize mass demonstrations but we didn't hear much about their plans on engaging in a dialogue with the government take a listen to what the russian ambassador had to say about that i'm very concerned that in case of sort of large gatherings of people the possibility of provocations would be greatly enhanced so instead of instead of thinking you know demonstrations opposition leaders must finally formulate their attitude towards political dialogue so far the main point of diplomatic bickering over syria has been the one sided approach of the us in a number of other countries and i would put all responsibility in the hands of president assad and would never address. opposition whereas russia's stance has been the same all the way and that is all parties must lay down their arms but with this resolution which appears as more impartial which possible dialogue that
addresses all sides of the conflict one may argue there is finally hope for the much needed consensus in the international community that is of course if the resolution comes to pass and the chances are it well. but antiwar activists on the bark of these the armed opposition supported by countries like turkey and the us will continue fighting to bring down the syrian regime the government is willing to pursue a peaceful dialogue so far the conditions are such that the opposition has been forced to at least go through the motions but simultaneously they're conducting a terror campaign and we see provocations again from the outside via turkey that are all intended to scuttle this peace attempt ceasefire operates against nato you know the united states basically there and turkey is acting as their proxy but it operates against their goal of removing assad and syrian people clearly are at
least content to allow was to remain in power during a transition to another government under the new constitution and perhaps if there's a vote well they may even elect them into power this is intolerable for the united states turkey is working at the direction hand in hand with the united states and so turkey is going to do whatever it can it is doing whatever it can to see that there is no ceasefire. but what the president asked that reform is being an active and parliamentary elections doing many syrians hope the u.n. backed ceasefire will help me change the reality that's of some of the reports from damascus. damascus greeted the ceasefire with a sunny day and high spirits residents took to the parks rather than streets and sprinklers not bullets all that needed dodging yeah this picture perfect morning was laden with fear and uncertainty as them esteems actually awaited news from the north. my biggest wish now is for the cease fire and jules rule long
when you can walk the streets without fear include at least one do without hearing that somebody was killed. that wasn't the case in the rest of the country and thursday proceedings were rocked by three blasts that killed and injured twenty five hard though that is a country that has grown accustomed to a daily death toll exceeding one hundred even that could be seen as a step forward. everyone here it is a religion of politics once one thing for syria. and the capital's old bazaar business is slow many locals are pressed for money and tourists are few and far between for centuries trade was syria's best antidote to six syrian religious conflict but its politics draw a wedge between syria communities and relieved to gather you know here in syria. the mostly everyone in the mosque in.
the east there is the damage seen stories that once held syria to war there are european or seders some fear that syria may become the target of yet another one day western conquest it would again seek to impose its values this time it twenty first century rance. bludgeon of the impala pull them aside thoughts isn't purpose possible for syrians themselves as a nation of great warriors who are valuable or above everything else. revolutionary violence train the country more and more syrians are far more eager to amplify than the other part of their cultural heritage and that of a peace loving caring nation. it is true that syria doesn't have a long record of political pluralism the main rallying cry of the opposition but there are efforts to change that nine political parties for
a graduate student in recent months some of them openly seeking to challenge the dominance of good friday. we used to have three taboos religion sex and politics at least we can talk about politics now that there is a member of the party of supporters it can boast only fourteen hundred people suffer for they're still figuring out the details of their political agenda but the sheriff says he's pretty certain of the means it will not use to achieve it. but it's true that the regime has a long way to go to make her political system more inclusive but we also have to agree that using any kind of violence in politics is unacceptable politics is about compromising with your rivals and you can't do that while shooting many here say that if there is any force that can unite syrians these is the opposition the opposition to war. artsy damascus syria.
well still to come this hour the r.t. reporter are labeled a national risk dystonia like this one of our correspondents countries deemed a threat to the baltic states. wyvis on the orthodox the performance of the church in the south of the steam. the subject of immigration always has come election time but seeing french far right presidential candidates from others. reforms elected. reports there's a fear that the ring fencing fronts could prove. anti immigration and to euro antiglobalization and advocates of protectionism all in the name of the french state and national identity. there is not a single french person now one european who does not know that i am
a sworn enemy of the european single currency buskers it is radical islam as a direct consequence of mass immigration that's the left and the right in host on us for decades it is not no. conditionally on the fringes of france's national politics the rhetoric of today's far right may longer be as far off for its citizens as it once was opinion polls suggest the presidential candidate may be independent of the ultra right wing national front party is third with potentially ten million votes its biggest support base ever there is no party surfing through gryphon friends so if the french. doesn't bother anyone but. we don't want. to play cleanly and so we don't hold them to the different communities but they will speak together grow as an identity
of globalization destroy themselves and. enter the pen with her calls for economic patriotism prioritizing france over europe its native citizens over others of giving the french back their jobs print edition of the world to the minutes of globalization and quite frankly we wouldn't have this this anger and this is defiance if if from. very high economic growth but in france because of sarkozy's past polices economic policies the growth doesn't exist so you have a lot of people sinking to prison so the of the immigrants and center right incumbent nicolas sarkozy stands accused of jumping on the far right bandwagon some say for the ballot sake. our integration system is getting worse and worse why because we have too many foreigners in our territory threatening to withdraw
from the shang and border from the agreement by no coincidence at a time when europe is seeing an influx of refugees fleeing conflicts in north africa and the middle east this is a free gift so we'll have to see the what he will do because. sarkozy knows pretty well he was elected in two thousand and seven only because he was able to catch. as a nation of and know the situation is quite the same some say that what was once a protest vote is now a more permanent part of the french political spectrum from the it has long been the case that people version of the national front as a protest against the others there is certainly a part of the electorate who vote for the reasons of dissent but i think it must now be recognised even if it's difficult to accept the vote for the national front is increasingly a vote of support the increasing prominence of right with rhetoric in france
especially the lead up to the presidential elections it's clear what's more difficult to decipher is whether this grows support for the right reflects the direction of the fratricidal values i stated or is simply a knee jerk reaction to everything the french see wrong in their country. that's are so your r t paris. there are three has been listed as an official enemy of hysteria eastern europe correspondent has been tried for the country's security agency list of people companies and nations are considered to pose a real potential threat and actually are sure skee contemplates why time and he's getting personal. that certainly is one impressive list along with r t r station and me personally on it it's also the russian foreign ministry the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov as well as several russian stations t.v. stations channel one and there and other stations surprisingly enough even the vice mayor of tile in who is known for his pro russian stance is also on the list of
a potential threat despite him being so in some kind of authority in the capital and also surprisingly enough there are also concepts not only the names but concepts and historical events on this list like the great patriotic war the kremlin and even the relocation of the monument of the bronze soldier big scandal in the story or several years back also on this list of potential and real dangers to the country this is well not a surprise because this has happened before. one of my colleagues reported back that he was denied a visa when he was trying to fly to a story or to do a documentary about neo nazis and united in a country and later three years later in two to two thousand and ten one of our crews and was detained at the border of latina stonier for filming and fascist rally their peaceful demonstration so this is not a surprising thing that a story of puts us on a blacklist is just personally i'm surprised that they went personal this time and
we meet directly on the list i've been to stonier three or four times in the in the course of last three or four years and mostly film stories about how the those in power actually think the russian minority there the burning issue of glorifying the former nazi collaborators. economic issues the one issue the one case which may be the reason for story in the thirty's to put me on the blacklist is when we were filming a story about how some of stone ians have been unhappy being part of the euro zone and how some of been speaking against being with the united. we are actually used to the fact that the authorities have been. interviews r.t. but this time the finance minister said that he would like to give us an interview we came to his office waited for more than an hour there and then suddenly his secretary said that he doesn't want to give you an interview i was so much insulted by that unprofessional approach and i tweeted about this fact curiously saying that
this is not the way things should work out where you've been denied an interview straight in in the minister's office maybe that was the reason for the story of thought used to blacklist me and the station i don't know i just have to wait and see whether there's any explanation for that but certainly it's very interesting to find my name on that list. after some other news making headlines around the world . miley is back under civilian rule interim president has taken over three weeks after a military coup. against organized actions the army seized power over what it saw the previous leader's failure to tackle to iran separatists and business insurgents since declared independence when the. egypt's ousted president hosni mubarak being banned from running for the top job including many prime minister in the past two years it's also scope of the plans of former vice president and more cinnamon reveals the surprise kind of incident from north

here in russia is currently reeling from getting a call its face and he's a long way reports on the scandals at her church leaders scrambling over the reputation. leading up to the most celebrated russian orthodox holiday of the year the church found itself surrounded by scandal and in not so holy hot water. the game of the game and it will be the true girl plunker's pussy riot who preach their anti putin protest in song christ the savior cathedral to the watch on the patriarchs wrist that was and then wasn't an official bad site photos the church has been in the spotlight for months and some think it's growing no coincidence. or monitoring issues there's a planned and active campaign against the church. patriarchy ariel's wristwatch with a price tag of some thirty thousand euros became the talk of the russian blogosphere
over photos with a piece obviously brushed out in official pictures online but of course some of the sensation is connected with the scandals ability to make news put someone through new stories into the news for example the charge has always had to watch for signs of being on the website for years social media monitoring analysts find their own line activity on the church usually peaks around holidays like orthodox christmas in january but this year peace continued throughout the spring and some not even during scandals but just after and before making sure the ball didn't drop and blogs tweets and spoofs kept flowing. and someone starts calling simple patriotic complicated expensive watches or gifts it's all part of a campaign not say that for a minute but rush upside down. the critics argue the church has become hysterical
and oversensitive to mean all liberals anti church in attracting negative publicity including their harsh reaction to the punk protests. i agree wish people who or very seriously criticize. this. criminal investigation for. cork and fortunately for the female rockers from pussy riot though it is they're now in detention for their stand awaiting trial they could see a maximum sentence of seven years in jail. the break they are just watch has long been restored to photos and of course the ride await their sentencing criticism of the church continue. but monitoring experts who believe a lot of the bad p.r.
