it is a pleasure to have you with us here today. iran says it will not fire any military confrontation but it's strong enough to repel an attack and would hit back with deadly force the statement comes in response to the israeli prime minister's speech at the u.n. call for tougher international action to strangle iranian nuclear development. as the latest from new york. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu took to the podium to address the international body and presented somewhat of a show wintel his diplomatic approach this year in his speech was to hold up somewhat of a cartoonish figure of
a bomb to indicate what he believes is iran's nuclear program he was holding up this drawing and literally drew a red line in it he indicated israelis believe that iran has enriched seventy percent enough. to make a bomb and at the ninety percent line the israeli prime minister drew a red line with a marker to indicate that the international community he says should draw that line and if you run verses that lie it would lead to military intervention benjamin netanyahu says that sanctions over the past seven years that have been placed on iran has not deterred them from continuing their nuclear program and so he was trying to rally the world body to take a more forceful actions against iran but clearly this was
a different tactic that most representatives take what addressing the international community usually they give somewhat of a speech there is some tension rising between the u.s. and israel over iran because the u.s. has not been as forceful with this red line rhetoric as israel has been and israel is hoping that the u.s. will be more aggressive in setting in which there could be kind of consequences put upon iran if iran continues its nuclear program so clearly a lot of issues being discussed at the u.n. as all these world leaders are meeting in new york for the week. what is marina porter not reporting that now the conflict in syria also up for debate at the un general assembly has reportedly been an explosion in the meantime of the chief of staff building in central damascus and this comes as the two month long battle for the second city of aleppo is said to be entering its decisive phase the latest
clashes described as unprecedented and amid the escalating violence the u.n. human rights council has extended its mandate to investigate war crimes in the country the forty seven member body also part of resolution that condemns what it called widespread violations by syrian government forces the text made no mention of alleged rebel atrocities forcing russia and china among others to vote against what they consider an unbalanced motion moscow's try to mediate a peaceful solution to the conflict but the russian foreign minister says there is outside interest in going lud chad has just a part of interview with us talk show host charlie rose. when we lower our position in the syrian opposition representatives that we believe that you should forget you know about you know who is. more important in the position movement you shouldn't forget the boat you have. why don't you think about
your people why don't you stop fighting and they have been telling us and the response you know but as a. foreign minister followers they give us a different voice they tell us keep fighting until the end. raise your voice saying that russia must. and you will and you will prevail. he was you know it's the law from moscow still to come for you just a bit later in this program forgotten promises. expenses to balance budgets but in fact the more they cut the slower the economic consequently cuts this will be a catastrophic budget of french president francois hollande announces the country's toughest budget in decades expos convinced the measures will only make things worse . almost immediately after georgia began boasting about whiting out
a dozen suspected militants who allegedly crossed russia's border last month was being cast on the operation now of former georgian chechen militants claiming the whole operation was an elaborate hoax to discredit russia investigating the story. the outcome of a recent alleged police operation near georgia's border with russia's republic of dagestan eleven suspected terrorist dead the b.b.c. says that the armed men were chechens who crossed into georgian territory and kidnapped around ten locals before being caught by police the news spreads quickly but not everyone's buying it. this was all organized by georgian security services the lack of transparency and details about the incident has led many to believe the full so-called anti terror operation was a complete hoax georgian authorities have been very successful in creating an image of a modern western civilised state a beacon of freedom by force w.
bush once called it but in this case the opposition's accusations are fighting supporters on the other side of the caucasus meet he's a young dumb he spent two decades fighting on the side of chechen militants against moscow officially representing them in georgia he also has doubts about what really happened at this latest border operation but. their weapons were american made second none of them fired off a single shot last not so the uniforms of the so-called fighters were brand new that was saakashvili plan he sent his guys across the border into russia and then had them shot by the georgian police this was a setup just to frame russia no one will ever be able to prevent it. he's a weakling. terrorist began in the ninety's when you personally helped chechen separatists by delivering weapons and aid from georgia. surely the pankisi gorge in
georgia is really close to chechnya it takes just ten minutes to fly across the border by helicopter so we helped our warriors from georgian territory from the gorge we delivered weapons money to the injured and then send them all around the world for treatment. and with the help of georgian security services and. we got the weapons from the depository of the georgian anti terror center our guys came there with cash to choose whichever weapons they wanted and bought the. album of says these interesting didn't diminish even after president saakashvili now a man often bridge street is an end of the markers. everything is still controlled by the anti-terrorist center. dean and the gym arts are in its hands they are their people any chechen who lives in georgia and wants to study in an islamic country has to go through the antiterrorist center to take you to tbilisi you go to this
center meet with some official and they won't let you go into you say yes to us free to work and then all of them of claims that his knowledge almost cost him his life when the solution attempt he was allowed to return to church. from russian authorities after he asked for forgiveness now plans to reveal everything he knows you want to spin off r.t. rosalee the chechen republic. part of the birthplace of saddam hussein to open up the artery was after a prison break in the iraqi city of to crete that claimed the lives of at least twelve people clashes began late on thursday night after a suicide bomb attack at the prison gate of the military has reportedly regain control of the facility although some ninety inmates have managed to escape the attack comes after al qaeda in iraq and also plans to regain territory and free its members who had been jailed. thousands of workers have marched through central rome
as part of a nationwide one day strike against austerity which led to a downsizing of the public sector the government passed the latest spending cuts in august in a bid to avoid debt disaster meanwhile the country continues to slide deeper into recession with unemployment at its highest. since two thousand and four. the vice president of the european parliament has reportedly called on the spanish prime minister. to consider sending in troops to prevent a referendum in catalonia that's after the regional parliament voted to stage a vote on self-determination over a million people marched for independence in catalonia earlier this month claiming they would be better off it is spain's most prosperous region but if suffering due to a major tax. well the french company it has approved the country's toughest budget in decades included are promises to tax the rich and cut public spending but people are growing alarmed by increasing unemployment and
a lack of growth both of which president francois hollande has promised to address . reports. therefore first off this. young dish was here a short about overbought up as you go there i believe the time of crisis is over it's now time for france's president francois hollande to perform a miracle this is how some are labeling the task facing all along in his first annual budget and the country's image in the faltering euro zone is also at stake the government needs to save thirty billion euros in twelve months to reduce the deficit from this year's four and a half percent to three percent the e.u. ceiling for member countries higher taxes for business and wealthy individuals are expected to bring twenty billion and all and has outlined a plan to save the other ten billion by cutting public spending was so you know has worked in the hunt for french ministries over the last twenty years he says france
is currently there may fall into the same trap many of his predecessors did. hoop the past decades of governments have been cutting and cutting and cutting the state's expenses to balance budgets but in fact the more they cut the slower the economic growth and consequently more cuts this will be a catastrophic budget i think taxing the rich and unprecedented seventy five percent for those that earn however a million euros a year was one of all lands crucial election promises allowed a publisher editor and a french millionaire says the move is nothing but a political game. he did this to make his electorate come down to make an impression he's doing something but this is all bluff and it can't help it's simply not enough there's not that many rich people and friends while we sit in a man's house in belgium where the businessman moves to avoid high taxes at home he tells me many of france's rich and their money will follow suit history as the
worst is the people who are now happy that the rich are being punished. understand the government will start with the rich when they fail to succeed and i'm one hundred percent certain. the poor. some experts warn that not only french money but foreign capital will also flee with such a gloomy outlook projected for the future the constitution is not too bright either last week the country's unemployment surpassed three million for the first time in years french president francois complained slow going towards change is now today four months on the rotten signs of many changes here in the country but while france is economically struggling with an enormous dad huge budget deficit and an unemployment level the highest it's been more than a decade the question is whether the change that people here voted for has been for the better. paris france. of course is coming to life
in the heart of moscow for you this hour crops that kill a gruesome discoveries made by french scientists cost a dog shadow over the american food giant monsanto. brittania. but i mean it's the iconic association with the british empire. plus a report on how the dishes to the u.k. citizenship test proved to be tricky not only for those seeking a new passport story in full in just a couple of minutes. i never thought i could earn a living this way. small arms. building
plant a lot of these lost count of all the weapons she's fired over the past. years. i got so used to it sometimes my friends ask me to join them at the rifle range and i say no way i'm so tired of shooting. the planet's history goes from making firearms doing world war two to ballistic missiles from nuclear submarines during the cold war the bulk of the soviet industry was moved here in the 1940's to flee the advancing germans cells here also became the heart of soviet military production closed off to foreigners for half a century it's thrived on the massive moods of the soviet military when the u.s.s.r. collapsed but life here was shaken to the core but some adapted to better than others. this is the truck factory russia's number one truck made for girls a look at how well the workplace is organized everything's gone to make sure the
workers don't waste time waiting there was production is booming the factory has largely managed to get on to civil rails these giants are sold around the globe here but it's a brand new be the way to be delivered to acquire seventy trucks like this one roll up the bronx conveyor belt every day look at about this things that absolutely huge . well i'm no formula one pilot but hopefully if i can get up that. what can go far to drive. oh that was fun perhaps i should get one of these to trouble to walk every morning what the cost of about forty thousand dollars i should start saving my.
thanks for joining us on r.t. today russia waging war on genetically modified corn it follows discoveries by french scientists that suggest the u.s. culture giant monsanto already involved in a number of health scandals is producing dangerous products artie's sean thomas has the story. this all stems from a french study that was released in mid september that is now become known as the infamous rat tumor study in the study they took the genetically modified corn encased six o three from monsanto and placed it against natural corn over a two year period and what they found is that rats fed on a diet of monsanto corn had a higher rate of occurrences of untimely death organ failure and tumor growth now as a result russia has banned monsanto corn from being imported in to russia and they
have also asked of their own scientists to take a look at the study conduct their own tests monsanto has of course gone against the study saying that it doesn't even meet the bare minimum requirements of scientific research and they've also kind of neglected it saying that this isn't going to have a real impact on their sales because russia is a net grain exporter rather than an importer russia also already has in place a ban on the for genetically modified products so it's not expected to have a large impact in russia as well but if you look at what france is doing they're taking a look at the study they themselves are in the process of considering a ban which is believed to that could spark a european wide trend to ban them in central point that is something that the company is not looking at favorably but also if you look at overall products this isn't just corn on the cob we have corn syrup and the sweeteners that are used to sweeten many soft drinks around the world so this could have a much larger effect as well now if you look at monsanto corporation united states
they have some troubles there as well more than two thousand farmers have signed a petition to get the u.s. government to study further this specific type of genetically modified corn also in california there's proposition thirty seven which would require food labels to say hey this is been genetically modified monsanto doesn't want that they've actually lobbied against proposition thirty seven by putting more than four million of their own money against prop thirty seven so they've got their own troubles in the states and here as well right now this temporary ban is in effect until right. take a look at it and determine the safety of fact of this corn here in russia. reporting all on our website dot com right now a costly blackout drunk broker says he can't remember why he bore seven million barrels of crude pushing the oil market to an eight month high overnight. stealing the spotlight russia's astronomers discover
a comet should be bright enough to shine the moon in two thousand and thirteen. are twenty minutes past the hour moscow time appearing on american t.v. proved to be an awkward experience for the british prime minister david cameron he fell to answer some key questions in a mock u.k. citizenship test set by the host david letterman but as i. found out the prime minister is not alone when it comes to gaps in historical knowledge. the life in the u.k. citizenship test a must for anyone wanting to qualify for a british possible according to the government studying for it is meant to help all those hoping to make the u.k. their home integrate back into british society just last year prime minister david cameron in paris changes to the full amount of the exam saying that instead of honoring questions on european institutions british culture and history needed to take priority and during his car visit to the us mr cameron made an appearance at
the david letterman show where he was faced with the u.k. citizenship test of his own. a lorry brittania. written by home i mean it's the iconic association with the british empire testament. that we don't all go for the magna carta literally means great charter the great charter and as we've pointed out the seeds of democracy really brittania which is a beautiful refrain. based on appalled by james thompson james thompson well i'm not. the british media i had a field day with the oxford an eton educated lead as epic fail over the questions about the magna carta and the rule britannia one of the real questions on the u.k. citizenship test all six how many parliamentary constituencies there are in the united kingdom the correct answer six hundred and fifty now we've come to the
u.k.'s national library to find out if the london is hair can answer that question correctly would you be able to tell me how many constituencies there are in the u.k. . would you be able to so many constituencies that are in the u.k. . so it looks like david cameron's not the only one to struggle with the yarn says every year over one hundred thousand people take the test with as many as one in three failing fortunately for them unlike the british prime minister that his career had ended during the show they can enjoy as many retakes as they like. pauli reporting right now amnesty international has. to assure julian your songs that he will not face on would extradition to america if he sent to sweden instead of the whistleblowers accused of sex crimes but many see that as a pretext for moving him to the united states where he could face the death penalty and one we can leak spokesman says washington's treatment of a song just an enemy is effectively an attack on the entire world of journalism if
he's actually done here you would be treated as an enemy an enemy combatant. and we all know what then tales we do in journalism and the implication was that journalism didn't the truth of there is considered. an enemy we of course awake waiting for the year the us equivalent of the are up a good way getting them for the us population to rise up and the. sense that the human rights have been deteriorating in the us freedom of the media is not as it was before and i think it's pretty much the time for the us population is real life through the. country is one in every truck i think could save the future of the american people.
and i'll be sure not to miss out the full interview with spokes person christine will be airing on artsy on sunday for now though a short break and then it's katie pilbeam with the business. gracefully. it is a way of life traditionally the people are. herders and. they are also highly skilled and organized. another week. depending. on the day we found this particularly camp they were settled near the
coast of the sea here four families work together to manage nearly a thousand reindeer herding reindeer. people and. they can use almost every single part of the reindeer to help them survive. a deer is a means of transportation. with. the life in the tundra is harsh and so before winter hits many of the children are helicoptered to the center of the. boarding school. students learn different languages utilize modern technologies through specialized grant programs and even learn arts skills all within a protected the school was founded. a scientist who wanted a better way of life for his people but even with the most progressive ideas and
education many say they don't want to trade the modern life. i have returned to the time and i actually like it here if you're outside there's fresh air fresh water looks at the site you can see deer it's a joyful sight. sentiment that hopefully ensures that russia's northern reindeer will have caretakers for generations to. come but to business there's been an unexpected twist in the london court case between two of russia's first began as hours before their legal battle is due to resume mackell johnny and that of past have done
a deal on the world's top. child he had claimed that a past back in the ninety's twenty percent. wanted a billion dollar compensation reso makes nine percent of the world used in construction and called making the company's now was some eight and a half billion dollars business l.t. is marina closer about expose the rumors surrounding the settlement. who won a billion dollars out stake why would anyone want to drop the case surely michael chinoy knew what he was getting them to pull inside sources close to the two claim that michael chinoy will get some money from my legs it is possible in the end the figure flying around this roughly two hundred and fifty million dollars but why settle when you could get more than more times that amount also this settlement comes after years of the stock options about it so why now that is the real
question here well some claim that michael should know i was a put off by another prominent case in the woods and the just a few days ago and i'm talking about the battle of russian oligarchs what is that is all the end i'm on about mortgage but it's all ski is now reportedly on the brink of ruin and is rushing to sell his remaining assets after losing his five point six billion dollars plane though five month trial was one of the most expensive in british history and the russian tycoon are reported to face this bill worth forty million pounds for legal expenses but the accusations drawn from one side to the other although the past couple of years it seems fairly all that both sides would simply agree to this agree and i live to boston this would be the perfect opportunity for him to clear his name as we know that his reputation is a very important to him but to many say he wanted to avoid airing his adored the
laundry for the whole world to see well even though the case is over the intrigue surrounding it is as high as ever and something tells me this is not the last word here about these two. indeed let's check out the stocks on wall street and see what's happening you see declines in the fust hour of trade and that's really as straight on the rest of the clever way it results of the stress. spanish banks european stocks as well continue to fall as spanish bond yields. as you can see that we've also got the euro managing to now the client in the last thirty minutes it's changed direction gamey of the wake of spain's budget and. we've also got the russian ruble as well as new zealand to the basket of cards in the last twenty minutes or so of trade on the negative while they're looking to finish up mix now they were gaining because of oil prices.
