9:01 am
flooded the nation's surrounding syria. you're watching r t live from moscow with me to say let's take a look at this always a bulletin he's pursued a dictator shut down drug trafficking cut tells and even expose entire terror cells and now he is representing julian assange renowned loyal both tulsa goes on has been speaking to are to you about where the whistleblower was future might take him archie sara for their shares with us some of what goes on revealed. he reveals a little bit about this ongoing battle for justice achieved in the science of course the wiki leaks founder remains holed up in the ecuadorian embassy here in london in knightsbridge and no real end in sight at the moment for this. standoff.
9:02 am
remains very very firm that we're in a science to be extradited that would put his human rights a very real risk at the same time the u.k. has said they're not going to grant you in a sound free passage and that if he sets foot outside the ecuadorian embassy he could be arrested for breaching his bail conditions so just where does that leave well in the interview with r.t. both those are garceau on a sound his lawyer said that they're going to continue to fight what he termed a terrible injustice and i'm glad. it's clear that i grew to julian a sort of political asylum because he was facing terrible injustice and exercised his fundamental rights and i think this wrong to needs to be defended at this point we consider it prevalent and a legal solution is possible and that if both the u.k. and the crew go to the international court of justice this ruling that bound to obey now remember killing innocents has never actually being charged he is wanted
9:03 am
for questioning in sweden of a rape and sexual assault allegation so one of the biggest criticisms leveled at good innocence is that his bid for asylum in ecuador granting him asylum is very much just trying to evade justice now his lawyer tells us that he's more than ready to go they have all the ready to face the questioning as long as he's being given a guarantee that once he was in sweden he'd face extradition to the u.s. and they have never received those guarantees as our son tells us you know you saw julian assange has told swedish prosecutors that he's ready to cooperate and ready to be questioned to submit himself to the procedures but only if he's guaranteed that it would not lead to a more complicated case. in which is rights to freedom of speech and information would be violated now as he said kill innocent and his legal team have always maintained that there is a very real fear here that were he to be extradited to sweden so that he could face a further extradition. to the us where some of the quine's that he could
9:04 am
potentially be accused of espionage for example for his work with wiki leaks that carries the death penalty in the us a very serious concerns that his lawyer makes in the interview i do not think mr assad is a spy all he did was exercise his right to freedom of information on what he received and shared it but much more surprised that there's been no investigation into the glaring crimes documented in those leaked reports featuring u.s. interference with issues that have absolutely no relation to either national security or the safety of american citizens or different from a few both sides of course very very eager to find some form of resolution but just when and how this will come remains extremely uncertain indeed his lawyer told r.t. there is no time limit to resolve this situation so loosely this one could be set to run and run but you can catch the full interview with julian assange as
9:05 am
a lawyer but also exclusively on r.t. tomorrow. still to come in a few minutes of course of all claims i knew then mark have you spoken with public celebrates the closure of all foreigners to provide for your office as are the realization of all servant to leave but with thousands of the e.u. and nato forces still on its territory international presence is barred from. also from the pentagon to the pyramids we find out whether bring in major contractors and a whole lot of u.s. corporate executives to cairo. u.n. peace envoy lakhdar brahimi has started his syria mission kicking off with talks with. egyptian m. arab league leaders his predecessor and former u.n. chief kofi annan quit because of divisions at the security council on ending the daily bloodshed bremer's version isn't likely to be any easier one syria's largest city aleppo is witnessing escalating fighting as rebels intensify the attempts to
9:06 am
take control the city is also being rocked by a car bomb that killed at least three civilians and injured forty others a few hours earlier jordanian militant leader linked to al qaeda threatened to launch deadly attacks to as president as said a model from the syrian social club ex-pat group thinks the country has become fertile soil for terrorists but has turned into a more regional wider conflict krapp's even some sort of an international war on syrian soil. i personally. witnessed first. demonstration on the seventh of may two thousand and eleven. the mistry mists outside the syrian regime and shouting very clearly. only and that doesn't need any explanation does it so it is not surprising what we are seeing or hearing that there are jihadists who are coming into syria because mr peres have
9:07 am
a long time seeing this conflict as the same model or the same you know viewing point just like they did with afghanistan three decades ago the problem we're having basically is that took so long to acknowledge that jihadist. you know element after i think it was too late. so far the u.s. has limited itself to calling for arming syrian rebels without taking any official action it's made no promises about not sending weapons to neighboring states and recently reported as the middle east is a frequent end of the client of the american arms trade. and takes a look at whether period is policy might lead the world may be terrified of a potential war with iran but for arms producers tensions fear is good business so it is for the united states according to
9:08 am
a recent congressional research service report within just one year the u.s. has tripled its arms sales tripled here's how it looks in numbers just around twenty billion dollars in two thousand and ten and over sixty billion dollars in two thousand and eleven so this is six point three billion dollars to be exact according to this report as far as the u.s. share on the global market is almost eighty percent of all worlds arm sales have to mention this congressional service research they arrived the numbers from unclassified arms sales reports now who provided the spike in sales that is mostly the persian gulf state half of what the u.s. sold last year went to saudi arabia eighty four advanced and fifteen fighters a variety of ammunition missiles and logistic support dozens of attack helicopters but why this spike looking at the graphics one might think something is brewing here apparently many experts think the same with spoke with daryl kimball
9:09 am
of the arms control association here's what he said. we often see conflict emerge after a group of states in a particular region with tensions have bought or built weapons so this does not necessarily ensure security but clearly the insecurities of the region the doubts about maintaining peace between states in that region are driving these wealthy countries in the middle east to buy u.s. weapons there is already a war going on in the region the civil war in syria saudi arabia and other gulf states are actively involved in that war there funneling weapons to the rebels in a strive to bring down assad iran's long time ally in the region many experts talk about syria as a stepping stone to iran in a sense the war on iran has already started it the spiking arms sales could be
9:10 am
a graphic sign of that it's hard to claim that arms sales is the and game for the us although he does profit handsomely from the sales in february nine hundred forty five president roosevelt at a meeting in egypt with our little abdel aziz bin sout the founder of modern saudi arabia pledged to defend the kingdom in exchange for a steady flow of oil up to this day u.s. actions in the region have been consistent with that goal the us has armed the gulf states to the teeth turning a blind eye to widespread human rights violations like of democracy terrorists turning a blind eye to a lot of things the question is whether the world is ready for another devastating war in the region i'm going to check on our tape coming up for you later on in the program coping with a revolution but if the facts of the economic and political uncertainty has on regulate just someone who was forced to go up the role of these in search of work.
