hello and welcome to our team karen terrazzo with their top stories paymasters are to decide whether greece should get more time to sort out its bailout reforms while in germany transform articles i was to say out there is leaving the euro would be no big deal. u.s. special troops are on standby to go into syria following president obama's ruining all the rising intervention if there are signs damascus is moving its chemical arms . and despite america's countdown to a pullout from afghanistan there's a warning that washington's fueling the insurgency following a deadly wave of insider attacks against western troops. next hour one of syria's deputy prime minister shares his view on how a cease fire and lasting peace can be achieved.
they're joined by dr corder hegemony a serious vice prime minister for economic affairs and then become. the let us start over visiting your is a news conference for us says the basic principle that must be observed for any kind of dialogue to be possible in syria you named principles and it has still it is and refraining from foreign interference and on is there anything else you know well no there are only these two principle ours which should be enough but if we were to agree on these two principles all other issues would become technicalities despite a contradiction is assumed and we would be able to reach an agreement or certain reciprocal concessions over the guidelines in question include refraining from foreign interference in any form of them which means that the syrian people should be allowed to decide their fate by themselves it is in fact
a longstanding principle of international relations that to being violated right now of the thirty second principle requires giving up violence in any of its forms if we look at the issues that lie at the core of contention in syria we'll see that it's something that simply cannot be resolved through the use of force but instead the way to deal with them is to sit down at the negotiating table i should say that pursuing a peaceful solution is through dialogue would require the world to show quite a lot of courage by refraining from military action it might seem that military force can get you farther than anything else but in reality it we've all seen that warfare doesn't get you anywhere politically. the situation in syria is very volatile and any instance of armed combat will only escalate the hostilities and what we need is a civil taney a cease fire mortars that would be in line with the kofi annan plan the geneva arrangement the stance of our friends and the attitude of the syrian government is
that which is published a resolution calling for national reconciliation will. you know. they. are there for how would you respond to people who say they won't negotiate with the government because military machine has been raising serious it is to the ground how is that as a precondition for dialogue and we're going to nick what have i done sort of let what. is beyond reason violence has been employed by each of the warring parties if we start regarding such statements as a precondition then dialogue will never take place civil wars in lebanon and algeria have shown that sooner or later the warring parties do come to negotiate with each other so the syrian people do have a chance but if only we get down to reconciliation without delay we might avoid having to pay an immense price for our country's war torn economy. common sense and wisdom call for sitting down at the negotiating table as soon as possible are to share without imposing any preconditions that will only impede the process of such
demands maybe perfectly well meaning but at the end of the day they're misleading and effectively do more to obstruct the peace process rather than encourage it and anyone who's impeding dialogue right now should be held responsible for the continuing bloodshed in syria the. doctor your doctor had there have been described as prominent personalities on the so-called domestic opposition today you are members of a national reconciliation government notwithstanding the escalating violence would you say that your cooperation with the regime has managed to make a change that up as far as the government policies are concerned there's a. first of all the present government can be called a government of reconciliation as it has a different shape still joining this government on behalf of the opposition was aimed at unraveling the maze and finding a way to establish a true national unity government we know that by sitting by and expecting such
conditions which will make all the opposition. joined in the national unity government can cause damage so we've taken it upon ourselves to make the first step towards forming a coalition government while retaining our opposition views we join the government based on a national unity agenda which was put into practice by a governmental declaration of the declaration includes two major provisions which are at the backbone of the coalition and of the future one of. the syrian government relies on the principle of national reconciliation and its recent declaration upholds this principle as a cornerstone regarding it as a process that would express the sovereign will of the people and to be essential for resolving the crisis adopting a road map for national reconciliation by a national unity government can be regarded as a victory of the entire syrian people the second provision goes in tune with our principle and was proven by the government declaration it suggests focusing on the east and not just in politics given how the current worldwide situation was
affected by russia and china's veto that meant the end of the old age and the beginning of a new one because i mean focusing on the east regarding the economy to fully revising all the economic ties of syria which have existed throughout the years i would fourth of the revision of the system is a crucial target one of the syrian crisis gave rise to it and now the onset of this revision is of great importance and it means a lot that this is not a short term measure this solution will have a positive impact for the syrian economy society and social structure. and you can imagine this is sation off but still it is as one of the key principles and you reiterated that point at the news conference however there is violence employed on both sides of the conflict in syria and one of the war in part is is the government you are a minister have you tried using your position in the cabinet to promote the notion of ending the violence. as far as the sation of violence is concerned we should
refer to the geneva communiqué. which provides for a ceasefire in accordance with the kofi annan plan and requires each party to assign their empowered interlocutors of syria did appoint its official representative to whereas the other party still hasn't done so and i don't know why maybe they have trouble picking the right person for the job but whatever the reason the dialogue and negotiation cannot happen without each party making their contribution is in our case one of the parties cannot decide whether it wants to participate in their deadlines change constantly on the talks are perpetually perspire and it's high time that we get on with the process of negotiation this issue is closely linked to the opposition choosing between options over the opposition is very diverse and one of its more reasonable factions is the national coordinating committee which has made their stance clear they call for dialogue with no preconditions but we have supported their position which is indeed similar to our own longstanding perspectival but we see that there are points for
convergence among syria's various political groups including the opposition both inside syria and abroad in this regard there was a very important statement made by dr haitham malik who has gone as far as to suggest handing over to the hague tribunals the militants who are guilty of killing syrians is therefore i'm confident the reality itself urges every sane minded person to call for dialogue going to be if we manage to agree on the principles i've already named but once we start a dialogue we would be able to address any issues but we need to refrain from insisting on preconditions that unlikely to prevent dialogue altogether if we can achieve a lot of the negotiating table if only we agree on the two fundamental principles for starting a dialogue with the birth mother that in one of the north observers say earlier that syria has become hostage to global competition for power and influence in ways by major global players that want to say that american presidential candidates and president obama in particular have taken advantage of the medical. let me imagine
is that obama. is the syrian crisis is unfolding at a turning point in history but i like to compare to the suez crisis the us soviet standoff marked the demise of the old world with where you came from has enjoyed had you met him and the emergence of a new bipolar world really for us today the opposition of russia and china is what arches in the end of a uni polar world with the new world order is yet to take shape today international relations are going through a painful metamorphoses should be there's a lot of chaos and disagreement and this brings both positive and negative implications for the syrian crisis and one of the downside to this phenomenon is that the global balance of power is still taking shape your continued hostilities in syria and what the u.s. and europe want to say these are still a teaser follow the familiar slavia scenario the shipments of bloodshed makes it impossible for various groups to co-exist peacefully within the syrian nation so
this is why the current international situation is so dangerous or whether it also creates an historically unprecedented opportunity for the syrian people to untangle the problem built on a longstanding and deep rooted feud in a totally new way she saw this is of course only possible if there's enough political will power to do that with the head of syria manages to resolve this crisis well that it will for the first time in history cast away the all too familiar pattern of dividing the state and society who along the lines of differences as was the case in libya and iraq just to replace it by a real nice songs that will get syria a place in the sun in the new political and economic environment. and walk.

group stages of the of the league i don't consider your league as a burden but but of course we like to be in champions league and i was also. used to play in champions league you can bury did burden on the condition that the . squad and not just the ten feel players plus goalie but the discord is a quality wise more broad and there i have my concerns. although losing players through an overloaded schedule is inevitable that it must be elated knowing he'll have nearly all his players at his disposal for the game including africa strike do a similar toe. have both been absent due to injuries he will however be without influential midfielder or two after made of who suffered a knee injury meanwhile and he's ever present rock in defense christopher samba was only too aware of the threat posed but was quick to point out why the mood in the dressing room was confident it's a final you know so we know importance of the game. of the game. go
and make a very difficult game we're really confident you know we we show in the previous game quality in the squad i'm sure that we can compete in the open because it's not going to go as i swim to feel in the last stage. in the past many managers have spoken out against the europa league branding it a burden teams could do without and although hitting believes that there's some truth in that he believes participation of russian teams in europe can only be beneficial to russia it would be a good achievement for a club growing club in in russia in outside russia to be in. in the group stage in europe the further you come the more difficulties we will face with a team move. not all this team but having some experience and. some experience playing in europe but if we play as we can then i think and i hope that
. we can get into the. group stage which would be good for russian food especially for our club they may be only two games away from the committee issues group stages but they face strong opposition days it reached the quarter finals in the competition last year and has a habit of doing well in the competition and you will also be having one eye on next weekend's match against premier league new boys more dubious which could show whether the club has the depth needed to mount a proper challenge in europe. while another russian side seeking to make the europa league proper its assess car the moscow outfit big favorites to see off the challenge of swedes a i k stockholm over two legs the army men currently sick in the premier league and have won their last two matches. elsewhere at another moscow have it all to do with their to make the europa league group stages new coach down to tresco with his charges going down to nil to stuttgart in their first leg

. a match between rivals is always important. even in the summer tournaments but. the super cup is the less important competition of of the four. during the season and i believe there is no relation between. the we know what is going to happen. in the whole season while new a barcelona manager tito vilanova doesn't see either tame as having a psychological advantage over the other despite basso having won six of their past eight meetings. no team is in peak condition at the beginning of the season and most of them reach top form in april or may when all the titles are at stake as them both ryall and barcelona have had players through a common of the euro two thousand and twelve championships you look at and we've had the same amount of time to prepare for the match that's why i think we're completely even with ryall at least on paper. now to go on one of the greatest ever
