8:01 am
a professor. of. international news live from moscow this is all see with me as your national power thanks for joining us and was stopped with breaking news this hour. international chemical weapons watchdog says desir in government has complied with its promise and handed over the last remaining details of its toxic arsenal to the agency this comes as part of syria's chemical design and plan how much downed by russia and washington last week and joining me now live is. they were nice to see it so it looks like see where it is committed to this diplomatic road map doesn't it absolutely it certainly does now damascus has fulfilled its obligation to send all
8:02 am
the documents regarding its chemical stockpile to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons or the p.c. w of course the office of w. has to work out a framework in order to deal with the procedures of the disarmament of syria they were supposed to hold a meeting on that on sunday but they have a postponed that indefinitely of course that was before it became known that damascus has already sent the entire package of documents needed to the c.w. so we'll have to wait and see exactly what will transpire now but the united nations is slated to hold a discussion in new york in the coming week in order to devise a good deal hammered out between moscow and washington about a week ago in geneva according to that deal damascus has until the middle of two thousand and fourteen in order to complete a disarmament program now there is of course some difficulties involved there with
8:03 am
and that is the fact that the chemical stockpiles are the syrian chemical stockpiles are actually distributed between various points in the country and not all of those parts are controlled entirely by the official damascus and of course there is also some disagreements when it comes to the wording of the potential u.n. resolution where london washington and paris want to see the threat of military intervention be included in the provisions of the potential u.n. . lucian in moscow says such a provision would be counterproductive. certainly spare housing the diplomatic way out for syria the south has it commenting on the matter well we are we have already heard from the had a presidential russian presidential administration sergei ivanov earlier on saturday who was talking in stockholm and he was also mentioning the various. various hypothetical instances of which were various hypothetical hypothetical
8:04 am
scenarios which could be happening for example he said that nobody has ever mentioned what it would be like if it turns out that both official damascus and the opposition have used the chemical weapons at the same time he has said that russia hostile filled its obligations when it comes to bringing official damascus to the table of the discussions something which cannot be said about all of the parties involved. we're not protecting the syrian government we're protecting the international law and if in future for example talking no ridiculous hue pathetically but will become sure russia will become sure that for example is cheating. we might change your position but so far we don't have such evidence. again this was a hypothetical scenario one of the hypothetical scenarios which was outlined by the head of russia's presidential administration in stockholm but again russia has been
8:05 am
adamant about about the necessity of the diplomatic solution of the syrian crisis and has been pushing the syrian government towards a discussion table moscow says that that is not the way that other parties involved in discussions have been doing or washington. russia has done its part under the russian american initiative on may seventh we have secured the mask this commitment to send to geneva conference. american partners for to do the same talks with the opposition it also looks like according to sergei one of that the syrian opposition doesn't seem to be so interested in getting to the discussion table on top of that it is notoriously does fragmented with some inner scuffles happening sporadically over the past several years as a matter of fact and also we must not forget about the fact that there are also
8:06 am
numerous groups within syria itself which are fighting supposedly for the opposition but at the same time they are openly affiliated with al qaida and of course issued a military involvement being in fact put in place by states such as the united states or france or the united kingdom of course that would mean a complete and total mayhem in syria something which has we know we have already seen happening in countries such as libya. arrived she's really not going to go live from central moscow thank you very much indeed we appreciate israeli's probing accusations its army treated a group of european diplomats and human rights activists in the west bank on friday they were accompanying an aid convoy unworried to a palestinian village that had previous been demolished by israel soldiers also seized one of the trunks and she's point to see it reports now on the events that have caused such. particular incident happened on finding from the information we
8:07 am
have a group of european diplomats were driving in a truck when they were fired out by the israeli army now they say that they were targeted by sound grenades that a french diplomat was literally yanked from the truck before the army broke away the diplomats had inside the struck tents as well as emergency supplies that they were trying to deliver to a bed one community that earlier in the week had seen its homes its kindergarden and its stables demolished by the israeli army now we've been unable to get any kind of comment from either the israeli police or the israeli army what i can tell you is that this is one of three bedroom communities that in the last six weeks has been targeted by the israeli army for this particular community that comprises of some one hundred twenty people in the west bank there was a court given a court order given by the israeli high court for the army to demolish the homes saying that they were illegal but it does point to
8:08 am
a much bigger problem that you have here in the west bank among between communities and that is that the communities themselves say that they need the land for the grazing of the cattle that the families have lived here for generations and that they simply have nowhere else to go in this particular community there were two attempts earlier in the week by the european community to try and reach the bad ones they did manage to get to them and put up some tents before these were forcibly taken down by the israeli army now the european diplomats who come from countries such as bush and sons' spain ireland and australia as you can well imagine are furious they say that there's been a complete disregard for the diplomatic immunity and they are calling on the international community to apply and pressurizes role to that hearing to international law and human rights activists peter tatchell told r.t. and this was just another example of how israel violates international. every aspect of this incident is in defiance of both israeli and international law the
8:09 am
starting point of course is that this incident happened in the occupied territories which the global consensus is that israel is illegally occupying since they were seized in the one nine hundred sixty seven war so israel shouldn't even be there but if it is going to be there as the occupying power it has a duty to safeguard the wealth and interest of all the people in that territory and quite clearly denying the two destitute palestinian. who've had their homes demolished by abuse really military but is quite clearly not fulfilling their obligations under international law to safeguard people in the territories they control and later this hour for you do white house is making turn today of steps towards iran's off of negotiations washington agrees to talk of something that hasn't happened in decades as long as tel run keeps its nuclear and military

8:15 am
petraeus recently began his new career here in the big apple as an adjunct professor for the new york city public university known as kuni but his attendance has been met with broad criticism from students faculty and staff members who say they don't want their college to host the man who oversaw the wars drone strikes and alleged torture tactics in the middle east now for the past few weeks this anti professor pre-trained his movement has been gaining traction recently activists tell me that they're on their campaign has been met with heavy handed tactics from the new york city police department now earlier this week about seventy five people were marching right around here across the street from that building where professor pre-trained was allegedly attending a fundraiser and that's when a fight broke out between new york city police officers and protesters cops who videotaped trying to barricade the activists who then spilled out onto the streets
8:16 am

8:19 am
chancellor angela merkel looks set to win a third term when germans go to the polls for a parliamentary election on sunday germany has largely mohnish they don't wish the economic problems that have crippled a number of its european neighbors but many of its citizens are at a decline in personal spending power and a rise in is secure part time work is based on. its builders europe's economic success story the german voters feel the country is split between the haves and the have nots germans are rich yeah ten percent of germans are only fifty to sixty percent of all the capital and the gap is getting bigger and
8:20 am
our society is divided here pretty soon germany like here in both forms that are so poor the streets are industry pair and the theaters have to shut down this town is broke for most people the financial situation isn't good which isn't the image many of germany's european partners have of the federal republic. and i think if you were to ask someone from spain they would tell you germany is an economic land of milk and honey but that just isn't the case perhaps thirty years ago but after reunification and the pressure is of staying competitive globally those days are gone. one of the ways germany has stayed competitive is by trying to keep wages low. and plenty of spaniards and greeks who come to berlin looking for work they are scandalized by how low our pay is it's not enough to survive it. in the run up to this election the main opposition is campaigned on a platform of introducing a minimum wage of
8:21 am
a two year old fifty per hour the current german government has dismissed those calls i'm a local party insists that the introduction of a minimum wage would destroy job creation however these people here say they just want a fair day's pay for a fair day's work. we need a minimum wage here and it has to be at a level that people can live on to provide for their families i mean there are so many jobs around that barely enough so you can survive i think eight fifty proposed by the s.d.p. is too low i think it should be closer to twelve per hour. so cold many jobs have also grabbed voters' attention ahead of sunday's ballot almost a quarter of the workforce are employed in these part time and often low paid jobs . leaving jobs are no good you can contribute to a pension was four hundred euro these days everyone in the family has to work i sit with my roommate we realized we make to a little cash it's
8:22 am
a case of either we give up our studies and find more work or we lose our flat whoever comes out on top from sunday's ballot is going to face the continuing task of keeping germany's economy on track while at the same time trying to please a workforce which feels underpaid and under appreciated peter all of a r.t. germany and a new upstart party called the alternative for germany looks like it could ruffle the feathers of their stylish players in sunday's election polls show it could bank five percent of the vote and that's enough to tip it over the line and into parliament and dr christian schmidt is deputy of the ballet branch and he says voters are coming round to the idea that the euro currency is holding the economy. i believe that the fact that the euro is not working the way it was supposed to from the beginning is finally making headway with and some of the voters who look beyond two very difficult to sort of look into the long term where germany at one
8:23 am
point or the other will have to carry the bill for all the pain for all the. systems that have been set in place one measure after the other to bail out greece and other countries and therefore there's a rising discontent that this very subject the year old has been swept under the carpet by the main parties so far none of the issues neither and nor syria nor anything else has surfaced and the major policy do not seem to be interest the german electorate germany has weathered the global financial storms of the last five years relatively well but as the kaiser report lays out later this hour even europe's industrial powerhouse isn't immune from the wins of key players in the world of finance. the collapse of lehman was a market signal that suit should have alerted the government and everyone participating in these markets that their massive reform was needed but instead
8:24 am
they interpreted that market single as a way to make the situation much worse again i made the comparison to theocratic fanatical religious extremists who misread their fundamentalist texts and everything they read suggest that they should blow themselves up and other people same thing as lloyd blankfein and warren buffet everything they read says i should blow everything up i should commit mass terrorism that's the message that they get from the from the price signals that they receive it's a breakdown in capitalism unfortunately and that's predictable because unfortunately the price of money is close to zero and access to money is ubiquitous by the stock receiving america ruled by the least qualified not to mention the kleptocracy on wall street. the us is cautiously moving towards iran which has recently come out with open hands offering to discuss his controversial nuclear program the white house has said it's ready to talk as an honest willing to provide proof its atomic ambitions
8:25 am
are strictly limited to the civil sector under joe rogan from the un teen you can have pressure and the ploughshares fund says this could be a breakthrough for the the whole of the mentally. it's clear that there is time and space for diplomacy it's clear that the syrian shoes that the international community the united nations russia the europeans the united states have put on iran have really gotten the iranian leader's attention the deal recently between united states and russia on syria's chemical weapons has demonstrated that diplomacy can work now it's a question of will it be followed through by the same can be said for ron if we can see these issues resolved diplomatically it's good to create a sense of stability in what has been a very unstable region now it certainly is in the interest of the people who live there as well as united states and russia and the office i mean. the co-founder of the afghan taliban has been released from
8:26 am
a jail in ston according to unconfirmed reports. ghani baradar was a cave figure the minnesota senator and say after they were toppled by the u.s. in two thousand and one and was arrested three years ago the obgyn to government had previously called for him to be freed saying his release would hold the peace. super typhoon you saw and gave one of the strongest storms they see where the wind speeds up to one hundred forty kilometers an hour is sweeping towards homegrown it's already strong the philippines and taiwan triggering landslides and severe flooding a massive storm is expected to hit china on sunday morning. and people have already been evacuated from coastal areas close to taiwan. elections have been how it in the northern province of the heartland of the separatist tunnel tigers for the first time the vote for a semi autonomous council threatens to reaganite tensions between the government

8:28 am
it yes the revolutionary period in russia forced agriculture to change rapidly and often against the will of many of those involved and this did lead to starvation revolution isn't fun but what about after that well stalin and khrushchev gave out a lot of documents which are private summer houses where people guard and also there were markets in the soviet union where people could bring the food they grew to sell to see all these pictures behind me these are people in the soviet union selling food they produced privately and legally but there were some moments in soviet history when there were some taxes placed on the sale of your personal goods from your personal labor which according to russian website history of taxes was around ten percent whether you love or hate communism more than anything doesn't matter there's half truth about shooting soviet gardeners burns like wildfire on the american side of the internet the real truth is that in fact when the us government for every reason in various forms clamps down on private gardens it isn't the same as communism but it's actually technically worse than communism for
8:29 am
the majority of its lifespan where you could guard it up as you like excluding the brutal revolutionary period but that's just my opinion. guys are welcome to the five hundred episode of the kaiser report five hundred episodes of markets finance a scandal covering crimes against capital markets and economies bailing.
