watching r.t. very warm welcome to today well despite warnings that it was defying international norm north korea launched its controversial long range rocket within moments plummeted into the sea even so there's anger at the u.n. security council which is valuable what action to take against the country for violating its resolutions russia intends the north has a right to a peaceful space program but it should not go against the u.n. here's our. 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 peace to be played but no one expected the eventual outcome 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 it all and ones ahead with its plan which went spectacularly wrong there
2:02 am
were fears that the launch was a cover for testing long range missile technology and if that were so it's back for a dramatic week but most true and suspect that north korea does have the rights of the vela peaceful space program and the issue should be settled through the chromatic means negative reaction from washington with losers tell lies stretched tensions in the region closer to breaking point than the launch itself washington's chipping its military focus from middle east to the asian pacific and is expanding its military presence with the new u.s. naval ships arriving in joint the new voters being announced paul is 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 asia specialist says that north korea actually wants to east tensions lift tough american back sanctions of a child. it's all part of the negotiating ploy with me would be an american. on the

one. six ability to make some concessions but at the same time they have to stand up to the regarding their sovereign rights and russia and china are quite right to point out every country has a right to run. satellites do. you fall asleep exploration and freedom launches have like violate international law i think it is not quite correct thirdly it violating the united nations sanctions when you know that it really can surrender wait around there is a lot of tension around. and you. don't really come from from the un young young young years just to get an economic back and these sanctions so far. are you can read more about north korea's failed rocket launch our website

article and tell us what you think to also waiting there for you today hitting a new low the war in afghanistan is more on popular than ever as the majority of americans say the worth of it. taking from the poor british alone firms are leaving desperate correlates with the pockets forcing them to pay astronomically high interest rates. and raising the stakes a record breaking torn it takes place in the states checkpoints more than eighteen billion dollars. syria's fragile ceasefire is under close watch for the u.n. security council considering a resolution to help enforce it and boy kofi annan says forces in the country have not yet fully complied with the terms that he's still going to check out 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 the observers 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 it's crucial for the monitors to be on the ground to make sure that they need transgressions of the kind of the ground state of the world and is going to be diverted there's a lot of skepticism here in washington about kofi annan plan the u.s. accept it the plan but it almost designated it as 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 week described it as quote a brief positive step obviously implying that the ceasefire is not going to hold and maybe not to miss rice the 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 but. i'm very concerned that injuries of sort of large gatherings of people the possibility of total gay sions will be greatly enhanced so instead of instead of. demonstrations position leaders must finally formulate their attitude towards political dialogue so far the main point of diplomatic kring 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 the. opposition whereas russia's stance has
2:07 am
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 calls for dialogue and 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 will. until more activist on the bargain these the on the 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 go through the motions but simultaneously they are 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 as you know the united states basically through and turkey is acting as their proxy
2:08 am
but it operates against their goal of removing assad and syrian people clearly are at least content to allow was three million in power during the transition to another government under the new constitution and perhaps if there's a vote of well they may even elect them into power this is intolerable for the united states turkey's 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. well coming your way later in the program choosing a national identity over diversity from says from the right games ground of the presidential races and that's really against the contradiction. the wait is nearly over wiki leaks son is coming to you next week he's unique show will feature interviews with people from around the world well more now from our london correspondent laura when exactly does doing the sun's hit the screens here
2:09 am
naughty well i can tell you that i can't tell you much about it i can tell you that the first episode of the show will be broadcast on tuesday april the seventeenth so that's this choose day coming and we and julian together really hoping this is going to be an explosive new show i can't tell you the name of the first guest you'll have to chew name yourselves to find that out on tuesday but i can tell you that they are all opinion formers some of them this isn't and some of them have never been interviewed before on english language television the first guest is particularly controversial and according to julian in the wake of the interview highly charismatic and find out what that's all about i met with him recently i went down to the secret location where he's been filming the show and i talked all about the show how he chose his guests why he decided to do it and of course he spent a lot of time sitting on the other side of the interview his desk and he told me a bit about his this incheon really with the mainstream media and why he chose to
2:10 am
broadcast first this show let's hear from him a lot of them trying to report not being heard accurately in the men's room who. works. so that's a base about why he chose r.t. he knows that he's come under quite a lot of criticism for it he says you only have to look at where the source of the criticism is coming from to to deflect it and he says that he has come under no editorial influence whatsoever so do children and she's day to see how that. will indeed and so on just been under house arrest for sixteen months and it's facing an extradition to sweden isn't the only kind of been the easiest of t.v. shows to produce. you know that's right and in fact skirts gently or not this week coming up for the week in which the first show is going to be broadcast is really
2:11 am
a week of anniversary for him both personal and professional it's going to be five hundred days since the investigation into these allegations of sexual assaults by two swedish women began now we've seen that the request for his extradition goes through the courts here in the u.k. right up to the supremes courts which that case finished at the beginning of february that's ten weeks ago now we still don't have a verdicts we are expecting it possibly to come next week but there's still no set date for that verdict to be handed down and still after five hundred days no charges have been laid against him it's also five hundred days since the wiki leaks bank accounts were first frozen so that has made funding for wiki leaks very difficult and threatening that whistleblowing organization all together and really that's what makes this program so unique the fact that it was conceived of thought of while it was virtually living under house arrest here in britain awaiting this
2:12 am
verdict on his extradition and so he said that you know he's always been someone who's traveled a lot he's met with a lot of people and he didn't have that anymore because he was having to live in this house out in the middle of nowhere no one could come and see him so he thought how my going to make people come and see me or i know i'll interview them you know make a television program so if he couldn't go to the world he would find a way of making the world come to him so that that's what he that's the kind of thing that he's talking about when he says when he when he talks about why he conceived of this program let's hear it from him about why he decided to become a t.v. host. first of all being on house arrest for a moment it's nice to have an occasional visitor and to learn more about the world given the conversations we were having a quite interesting. is going on but the second reason is that someone has given them what it meant for them to be receiving it or very
2:13 am
great. i felt it wasn't even much worse. pretty quickly. it was. principle so people. have a cortex and i want to have a different sort of proportion of people and. their approach has been to summarize i think it's accident. or very interesting or important that i'm not normal going to because they're not dealing with. their viewpoint with the government that's under house arrest. and political problems. so you can see the full version of that interview on monday the sixteenth of april and that will be followed hot on the heels by the first episode of the program on shoes day the seventeenth of april we're still awaiting the verdict sunday in los angeles extradition but we are quite glad that he's managed to make this program
2:14 am
before whatever happens to him happens time obviously his main fear has been always been that he will be extradited from sweden to the u.s. ok we look forward to the show or a summit in london thank you. the subject of immigration always stokes voters come election time and seeing a french far right presidential candidate show their true colors their very strict reforms if elected mr saucily reports there's a fear that ethnically ring fencing fronts could prove to be permanent. anti immigration anti 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 its radical islam is
2:15 am
a direct consequence of mass immigration of the left and the right imposed on us for decades it is not know. traditionally on the fringes of france's national politics the rhetoric of today's far right may no longer be as far off for its citizens as it once was opinion polls suggest the presidential candidate marine le pen of the ultra right wing national front party is third with potentially ten million votes its biggest support base ever there is no potency of concrete rishon friends so we should all be french. doesn't bother anyone but. we don't want to play king live so we thought of one of the different communities but don't speak together. as an identity it's globalization destroyed this identity. enter then with her calls for economic patriotism
2:16 am
prioritizing france over europe its native citizens over others of giving the french back their jobs french efficient of the world to the minutes of globalization and quite frankly we would have this anger and this. defiance if if from. very high it can be growth but in france because of sarkozy's past police and his economic policies the gross doesn't exist so you have a lot of people saying king the presence of 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 shango border from the agreement by no coincidence at
2:17 am
a time when europe is seeing an influx of refugees fleeing conflicts in north africa and the middle east this is a. clift so we'll have to see anything israel working within the us. knows pretty well that he was elected in two thousand and seven because he was able to catch. up the national front 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. it has long been the case that people vote for 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 recognized even if it's difficult to accept that the vote for the national front is increasingly a vote of support. the increasing prominence are 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
