thanks for being with our team and us three o'clock here in moscow in karen's karachi well despite warnings that it was defying international law north korea launched its controversial long range rocket early on friday but within moments it plummeted into the sea it's still riled at the u.n. security council although russia is pushing for diplomacy archies peter all of our has all the developments. the russian foreign minister sergey lavrov speech speaking alongside his chinese and indian counterparts to be holding a meeting here in moscow that meeting dominated by the fallout from this failed rocket launch coming out of north korea now sigil of rove expressed russia's regret that the launch it taken place but said. it was concerned putting more sanctions on
north korea wouldn't really do any good when it came to stopping these type of launches taking place perhaps in the future you know those sentiments were backed up by the chinese foreign minister saying china was opposed to any form of sanctions further sanctions being placed appalled. and now this goes against the sentiments we're hearing coming out of countries like the united states south korea and japan no those three nations have expressed their concern deep concern not they say this rocket launch in fact saying that it wasn't the rocket trying to put a satellite into space is the north koreans had said that it wasn't a cover for a test of a long range intercontinental ballistic missile something which north korea is prohibited from trying to carry out it's expected that those three countries that they mentioned the united states south korea and japan may try and call for further
sanctions something that russia not foxed up saying the pull missy was the only way to try and find a solution we convinced challenges of must be met purely political and diplomatic means we're calling on all sides concerned to be restrained responsible and committed resumption of the six party talks format has no alternative to. the situation. for a month the u.s. is saying that north korea is have gone back on promises that were made earlier this year they said that they wouldn't test any further rockets and exchange for food eight also reports coming out of south korea they think north. could be preparing a you know the nuclear test now this would be the third time that they could go to the u.n. have been involved in several resolutions have been on the table regarding north korea's nuclear program but all of this is happening against the backdrop of the united states beefing up their presence in the asia pacific region know the reasons
for this that have been given from d.c. is those the united states wants to move their focus away from military focus away from the middle east if you will start asia pacific region to try and keep an eye on nations like china and like iran can have i don't want to argue it out can't tell us how you think the press or the world should respond to north korea's failed rocket launch at the moment almost half of you say the world should let north korea have a satellite that's already and or better as a gesture of good will fall about a third saying we should turn a blind eye for the sake of the talks fifteen percent of you believe anti-missiles should be deployed in the region and only eight percent want to see can young slapped with more sanctions add your voice on our home page at r.t.e. dot com. also online taking from the poor the british law firm seizing on task bars forcing them to pay astronomically high interest rates and. 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 our correspondents covers that a stone house labeled him right to the country he tells us who else is including. syria ceasefire is under close watch with the u.n. security council considering a resolution to help enforce that envoy kofi annan says forces in the country have not yet fully complied with the terms of peace deal as reports emerge of clashes near the turkish border artist and i just can't has the details of 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 or and 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 of 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 it's crucial for the money that was to be on the ground and to make sure that the new transgressions of the good of the got of the state over in the world and is going to be detected there's a lot of skepticism here in washington about kofi annan supplant the u.s. except if the plan but it almost designated it as doomed even before the plane 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 described it as quote a brief positive step obviously implying that the cease fire is not going to hold a maybe not commis rise for 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 in queues of sort of large gatherings of people the possibility of provocations will be greatly enhanced so instead of instead of. demonstrations there's a new there's must finally formulate their attitude towards political dialogue so far the main point of diplomatic big kringle with syria has been the one sided approach of the us in a number of other countries and i would could always sponsibility in the hands of president assad and would never address the. opposition whereas russia has been the same all the way and that is all parties must lay down their arms 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 in the chances are it will with president assad's reforms being inactive
and parliamentary elections due in may syrians hope the un back ceasefire will help make a change will make that change a reality as an example of good reports from the country's capital. damascus greeted the ceasefire with a sunny day and high spirits residents took to the parks rather than streets and sprinklers not bullets were all that needed dodging yeah this picture perfect morning was laden with fear and uncertainty as them a scenes anxiously awaited news from the north but. my biggest wish now it's going to cease one jules rule long when you can walk the streets without fear including least one day without hearing that somebody was killed. that wasn't the case in the rest of the country on thursday or c.d.'s were rocked by three blasts that killed and injured twenty five hearts though that is in a country that has grown accustomed to
a daily death toll exceeding one hundred even that could be seen as a step forward a hundred of them everyone here it was a routine politics once wanted and it is the capital's all bizarre 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 sectarian or religious conflict but its politics draw a wedge between syria and communities when you leave together you know here in syria. like. everyone in the mosque and. in. homes and you know we like the here is the dam a scene soars that once held syria to war there are european crusaders some fear that syria may become the target of yet another mortar and a western conquest it would again seek to impose its values this time it twenty
first century represents. bludgeoned of the infallible demisting thoughts isn't purpose possible for syrians seeing themselves as a nation of great warriors who value boller above everything else brightest. revolutionary violence three in the country one more theory in the form a group for thrive another part of their cultural heritage that those of a peace loving peace cherishing nation. and he's true that syria doesn't have a long record of political pluralism and main rallying cry of the opposition but there are efforts to change the. nine political parties for a graduate student in recent months some of them openly seeking to challenge the dominance of the ba'ath party. we used to have three taboos religion sex and politics at least we can talk about politics now the fear is a member of the party of supporters it can go only for two hundred people so far
they're still figuring out the details of their political agenda but the first 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 our political system more inclusive but we also have to agree that using any kind of violence in the politics is unacceptable politics is about compromising with your rivals and you can't do that while shooting many here is saying that if there is any force that can unite syrians these is the opposition the opposition to war. or it's the damascus syria coming your way later in the program choosing national identity over a diversity. france's far right games ground in the presidential race a scare that's rally against multiculturalism. while the wait is nearly over wiki leaks whistleblower julian assange just coming to our team next week is
unique so we'll feature interviews with powerful people from around the world london correspondent laura smith has more to tell us. the first episode of the show will be broadcast on tuesday april seventeenth so that this chews day coming and we and julian together are 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 choose name yourselves to find that out on choose day but i can tell you that they are all opinion formers some of them dissidents 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 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 as desk and he told me
a bit about his disenchantment really with the mainstream media and why he chose to broadcast first this show the things that we're trying to record bring current. in the mainstream press. it was. clear for currents gently or not this week coming up the week in which the first show's going to be broadcast is really a week of anniversaries for him both personal and professional it's going to be five hundred days since the investigation into these allegations of sexual assault by two swedish women began now we've seen that at the request for his extradition go through the courts here in the u.k. right up to the supremes courts which in that case finished at the beginning of february that's ten weeks ago now we still don't have a 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 whistle blowing organization all together and really that's what makes this program so unique the fact that it was conceived of thought of while. living under house arrest here in britain awaiting this verdict on his extradition. first of all being on the house arrest for some of the flights that happen occasional visitor and more about the world and. the conversations we were having a quite interesting. for the people going oh that's one reason and second reason is that as someone who's given the morning before and has been on the receiving end of a very aggressive to. what i found i wasn't even much working. pretty quickly to just. sort of principles for instance.
take the context and i want to have a different sort of approach with people. why. it has been difficult and sometimes i think it's also a success you can't. really be all sides or very interesting and important for. people because they're not dealing with. human with somebody who's on the house arrest. record for 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 hills by the first stage of the program on tuesday the seventeenth of april we're still awaiting the verdict on julian assange his extradition but we are quite glad that he's managed to make this program before whatever happens to him happens to him obviously his main fear has always been that he will be extradited from sweden to the u.s. . there hasn't been anything yet he. is
to get the maximum the facts. before the source. to you for help so if you're always in the. we want to present. something on. the subject of immigration that's always a strokes voters come election time and at the same french far right presidential candidates show their true colors their value structure forms if i liked it and us tusshar so the reports there's a fear that ethnically ring fencing france could prove permanent 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 not one european who does not know that i am a sworn enemy of the european single currency us its radical islam as a direct consequence of mass immigration that the left and the right imposed on us for decades no. conditionally 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 that 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 party surfing to griffin in france so if you don't speak french. it doesn't bother anyone but. we don't want the us look larry king live and so we want or want to have a different communities but don't speak together grow ours and i don't think.
it's globalization destroyed the state into. mtr lipin with her calls for economic patriotism prioritizing france over europe its native citizens over others and giving the french back their jobs 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 shank and border free 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 shift so we have to see. what we do is us. knows pretty well that he was elected in contortion seven only because he was able
to catch it as a nation of a no win situation. some say that what was once a protest vote is now a more permanent part of the french political spectrum so we're going to see if 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 that the vote for the national front is increasingly a vote of support. increasing prominence a right wing rhetoric in france especially the lead up to the presidential elections it's clear or it's more difficult to decipher is whether this grows support for the right reflects the direction the fratricidal values has taken or is simply a knee jerk reaction to everything the french see wrong in their country that's are so your arty paris. now to some other news making headlines around the world mali is back on their civilian rule and interim president has taken over it three weeks after
a military coup he now has forty days to organize elections the army sees power over what it saw as the previous leader's failure to tackle toric separatists as insurgents who have since declared independence for the north. officials who served under egypt's out stress event hosni mubarak are being banned from running for the top job including any prime minister from the past ten years it's also scott heard the plans of former vice president omar suleiman who had revealed his surprise candidacy last week when you all first has to be approved by the ruling military council which took power last year. the un is demanding an immediate and to fighting on sudan southern border it's after south sudan a sees the town of hague which is home to around half of sudan's oil production there is a plea for forces to withdraw and for a presidential summit to be held between the countries to resolve the conflict
fighting along the oil rich border has escalated said south sudan gained independence last july. it's easter weekend for orthodox worshippers but the russian church already has its hands full dealing with protesters and doctored photos of its leader and he so now i have more on the damaging distractions. 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. from girl pointers pussy riot who preach their anti pollution protest in song at christ the savior cathedral to the watch on the patriarchs wrists that was and then wasn't in official website photos the church has been in the spotlight for months and some think it's by no coincidence. or monitoring issues there's
a planned and active campaign against the church. patriarchy reels wristwatch with a price tag of some thirty thousand euros became the talk of the russian blogger sphere over photos with a piece obviously brushed out in official pictures online of course some of this sensation is connected with the scandals ability to make news but someone whose family stories into the news for example the pack shark has always had a watch photos have been on the website for years social media monitoring analysts find that on 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 collinson potentially our country given expensive watches a gift it's all part of a campaign not saved for my dream but to send rush upside down. the critics argue the church has become hysterical and oversensitive teaming all liberals anti church in attracting negative publicity including a harsh reaction to the punk protests. i agree with people who or where is seriously criticise their behavior of course i don't have. a more or criminal needs to get. corp unfortunately for the female rockers from pussy riot it is they're now in detention for their stunt awaiting trial they could see a maximum sentence of seven years in jail. the patriarch's watch has long been
restored to photos and got to see right away their sentencing criticism of the church continues but not during and who believe a lot of the bad p.r. is being deliberately exaggerated i also believe there's more came from and it's not going to stop at the watch and use the now a r t moscow. times check out the business headlines marina following the markets however you know there's been a lot of mixed data coming out of a zone here of how are the markets responding hi karen well we're going to take your prince account the markets have been responding client well and we had disappointing growth data coming out from china but the asian markets react to my positive lead despite that but if we take a look at the picture in europe we see that both the footsie and the dikes are setting a value and we have also other data which is showing up basically the spanish banks of increase or borrowing and large that are about of course reduced investor
confidence a completely different picture though here ever both the arts yes and m i six are gaining wouldn't see that the my six is out point a four percent this hour and basically we're not out of russia has agreed to ease the tides for the all the companies developed in the countries arctic shelf now the government believes this could bring more than five hundred billion dollars in investment over the next thirty years and present alike livelihoods and says these special terms would last about fifteen years but most seem agrees that even though these firms are generous there are still not enough. listen think he has to be this huge to get you through it if you think it's worth the war. production. it was a little we all really didn't think it but it's not enough if you could have exploded into these kind of like people some people. who really clear. legal framework because you know all this expert due to the. interest in both the
sex but it could be changed over to my. certain the monthly be. part of a second look at the oil prices there that go over see there are still dropping analysis predict further declines next week because like elated by the nuclear program negotiations between iran and of all powers will reduce age tension which has of course been bolstering prices for the past couple of weeks now if we take a look at currencies it's a similar picture of what we've been seeing throughout the day the euro is losing against the dollar when it comes to the ruble it's also losing against both major currencies and this is how the business all day looks this hour my colleague from it was uncle will have the next update for you carol all right marina thanks for the. coming up better lavelle's across talked about a conflict in syria that's after a recap of the top stories in just a few moments. culture
