the syrian government come to believe the hound of chemical weapons dated to a hague based welsh dog while also says its approach to the us some government may change if it finds out he's not playing by the. european diplomats on the right stocks of its lash out at isro claiming its soldiers are wrong the mop and the west bank are not getting it so what about international norm . also there's now one yeah until scotland decides whether to ditch the united kingdom but as the days doing their rhetoric is rushing out with oil the centerpiece of disagreement that. a new yorker deming's demanded the release of students and beaten up and detained by the police during a street protest against a white cia chief moving into the perfect size. for
10:01 am
russia under on the wall this is all she was me your initial problem thanks for joining us the international chemical weapons a watchdog says the syrian government has complied with its promise and handed over the last remaining details of its toxic also to the agency this comes as part of syria's chemical dissolve and blonde hama downed by russia and washington last week going to has the details. maskers has fulfilled its obligation to send all the documents regarding its chemical stockpile to the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons or the o.p.c. w. now 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
10:02 am
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 all be 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 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 completed disarmament program now there is of course some difficulties involved there with that and that is the fact that the chemical stockpiles 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
10:03 am
to the wording of the potential u.n. resolution where is london washington and paris that want to see the threat of military intervention be included in the provisions of the potential u.n. resolution that moscow says such a provision would be counterproductive we had a russian presidential administrations have given north when speaking in stockholm earlier on saturday said that russia is not going to veto any u.n. resolution on syria out of principle but he said that there is absolutely no excluding the possibility of russia changing its stance will not protecting the syrian government we're protecting the international and even future for example talking ridiculous and you pathetically but if we become sure russia will become sure that for example. we might change your position but so far we don't have such evidence but again russia has been adamant about about
10:04 am
the necessity of the diplomatic solution of the syrian crisis and it has been pushing the syrian government towards the discussion table russia has done its part under the russian american initiative on may seventh we have secured the masochists commitment to send to geneva conference. american partners have so far failed to do the same in the talks with the opposition it also looks like according to sergei ivanov that the syrian opposition doesn't seem to be so interested in getting to the discussion table on top of that it is notoriously dishrag mantid with some inner stuff is 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 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 there should a military involvement be in fact put in place by states such as the united states
10:05 am
or france or the united kingdom of course that would mean a complete and total mayhem in syria something which has we we have already seen happening in countries such as libya and let's not talk more in syria's chemical demilitarization plan and the international buzz surrounding it with c.n.n. political analyst. i mistyped work out what is good to see so syria has handed over details of its chemical program but under these circumstances a war now is it really possible to compile together all the data required in just seven days. well i think first of all the date her didn't or this agreement didn't come as a surprise for at least the syrian government here and i think they were prepared previously discussing discussing probably with their russian counterparts and friends this possible move and you know what would that you know. require the syrian government to do including for example presenting full documentation about
10:06 am
their stockpile so i think they were prepared and but the main point here i think is that the three main. sides of this sort of agreement namely the russians the americans and the syrians need to signal to each other and signal to the outside world as well this is about a serious agreement and that it would be respected by every single party included and that would help pave the way for you know further representation of these he greenland and reaping the rewards of such an agreement is wrong and i hope you heard what the russian official had to say earlier on is there a high chance really that they say one government is indeed cheating when it comes to chemical weapons use in syria. is indeed what story yes is it possible that the syrian government can cheat when it comes to chemical weapons. as in use them or what do you mean by treat so is
10:07 am
a bird treaty not freezing but remember cheating is it possible that the syrian government can cheat when it comes to chemical weapons use well if i understand you correctly i'm sorry a little bit for for the difficulty shortage here but if i understand you correctly i think the syrian government will need a little bit of hill in order to get rid of the of the chemical weapons according to the agreement. in the time specified which is to be truer than if you've heard like. eight or nine months by the american side about a year by the syrian president so they would definitely welcome him was that what you mean if that watching all right let's move on now that so why is that a widespread doubt in the west that president assad won't comply with that toxic design meant wildfires that. right first of all there's a bit of trust to be built here by all parties. obviously that the west have
10:08 am
positioned themselves against the syrian government since very much more pretty much the start of this crisis in syria and neither they nor the syrian government are going to find it very easy to press signals or send signals across that can be treated with a high level of trust so they will have to be skeptical at least in front of their you know public. to whom they've they've said. quite a few times before that they don't trust the syrian government so they want to tell their public we don't trust them and yet but we'll need to wait and see on the syrian side i think it's also needed for them the syrian government to feel that the west isn't really interested only in deep. syria of a major capability for them to come and attack at least iran so the trust building trust exercise is really needed on bush so to say added you know most things that
10:09 am
washington hasn't done enough to push the rebels to the geneva two talks but does the us have enough influence here. they don't have they do have an influence or they seem to have an influence on the politicians who say they represent to the syrian opposition are they form the syrian opposition or some of them at least because they're definitely fragmented but where america doesn't really have much more which is older forces on the ground those who carry on weapons and who may see and already have seen probably this sort of agreement as a threat to their existence and why would they comply we've seen them destabilize a lot of agreements or a few agreements that have been reached before throughout the u.n. framework for example like the bright he mean or kofi annan supply so is it really the americans you know is it in their capability to push them for going to geneva talks we don't know i think this will have to be done through the major regional
10:10 am
players or atoms like the saudis and like the turks and those people actually control more of the forces on the ground because they are the ones who are supplying them with fund with intelligence and with military equipment much more than the americans are doing but is it in the interest of the saudis and the turks to actually go one with such an agreement and having to live with the syrian government for decades to come or the current sitting government for years to come i don't think so so the americans have a fair bit of you know playing to do in order to convince the regional parties are playing a. political analyst are not walk out thank you very much indeed thank you very much larry. program accusations its army and all treated a group of european diplomats and human rights activists in the west bank on friday they were accompanying an aid convoy on very tepid a scene in a village that had previously been demolished by israel soldiers also seized one of
10:11 am
the trucks there policy are reports now on the events that have caused such fury those particular incident happened on fine day from the information we have a group of european diplomats were driving in a truck when they were fired at 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 drove away the diplomats had inside the truck 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
10:12 am
some one hundred twenty people in the west bank they once were called 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 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.
10:13 am
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 welfare and interests of all the people in that territory and quite clearly denying a two destitute palestinian found lose who've had their homes demolished by views really military that is quite clearly not fulfilling their obligations under international law to safeguard people in the territories they control there's now less than a good to go before the scottish independence survived and supporters are marking the date with a mass march through the northern capital edinburgh but even though time is sticking it's far from clear which way the world will swing separatists
10:14 am
a huge oil reserves will guarantee the country's fortunes while london says the north and south and better off together are a sour fast reports now from the scottish capital. well i see a flag here the scottish independence rally underway in as a burst thousands of people turning out in this procession going through the streets were learned on calton hello well have won the scottish first minister alex salmond earlier on i was talking to the head of the campaign blair jenkins he said that there is still a long way to go well in fact wednesday march one year to go till the eighteenth of september twenty fourth thing when stuff is faces will be asked is a yes or no is it beggars belief to me why people would want the government for to make decisions about themselves you know we voted for it in government and we go get work that is a policy they dictate to us and that doesn't seem like
10:15 am
a democracy to me there's a lot of risk i think today is about a show of confidence today is about the people of scotland saying we're not afraid a lot of the no campaign or the better together campaign has been very negative. people in scotland just saying we're not afraid we are a strong independent nation we will take the opportunities that are there and a lot of people have come here with a children it's the family of that and you can see the crowds coming down with their signs one of the signs i was reading earlier saying yes takes courage well it certainly does this going to take a look more than courage to get the amount that they need to see scotland become an independent country and there are some big questions this still need to be answered now we're going see the government publishing its white paper in november that it's thought will address some really crucial issues for the yes campaign not only the
10:16 am
question of currency what scotland would do right to become independent the well the north sea oil will. if occasion. it is as yet still undecided as we said this march one year to go to scotland will be asked to have that yes no vote everything to play for votes if they. show their support for the independent meanwhile the british government and union is have no shortage of reasons as to why scotland should stay under one stone is the argument that the north is a small country simply wouldn't be able to make it on its own oil or not but i don't run see to sell the our kingdom u.k. political blog finds that argument insulting goldman's got the same population is then more about this big country the norway in fact if you look at a list of countries by population in the world scotland is right in the middle it's
10:17 am
the same size as the median country so i mean the idea that a normal sized country can't survive is insulting to all those other smaller countries who do very well and certainly i mean obviously can be very well it's a very very rich countries for the richest country on earth clear and i don't see any good reason to see why scotland couldn't make it like denmark. major bosses in germany are making their final pitch for votes but chose sloppily showing to win one of its low groupings tips to put a spanner in the works when political wrangling to form a coalition government that's coming out to the. right. first strike. and i think that your.
10:18 am
orders. that you will. face the same. pleasure to have you with us here on our t.v. today i'm really soon sure.

you will ching l c is good to have you with us let's move on now dozens of academics and city university in new york biking protests against the appointment of the film with cia chief david petraeus as it. they've all signed a petition for charges to be dropped against sixty eight and arrested during a notice trade projects media has a matched showing plays a beijing out the oxers while detaining them in a park not small. four star general and former cia director david 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
10:20 am
they're on their campaign has been met with heavy handed tactics from the new york city police department though earlier this week about seventy five people were marching right around here across the street from not building where professor petraeus 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 witnesses say students were punched slammed against vehicles and onto the pavement by the cops eventually six people were arrested and have been charged with obstruction of governmental administration riot resisting arrest and disorderly conduct twenty four year old denise ward is among the six students that were arrested during the protest and spent twenty eight hours in police custody she
10:21 am
joins me now to talk about her experience denise tell me what led to your arrest i believe that some of us were to be targeted by the police so that you know they were going to rise and then i mean they pushed us into the streets and they just started from there where they grabbed one of my palmer about like seven to fifteen cars slammed his head against the car and we're just all on top of. so then i went to try to help him and within the process i ended up falling in between two cars on to the back of my head then up proceeded to get up and then when i looked at a back of me there's another about like. cars or other cars. and. they picked up a shirt. and a plain clothes officer just take. blows to his children
10:22 am
and then the cop just came and grabbed me for me. and then just. i believe this is also an intimidation tactic used by the n.y.p.d. why is it that so many people are so on top with his new position as a visiting professor what he represents is what we're getting it's not his character . and his capital it's only. war. on to a petition calling for all charges against this excuse me students to be dropped in the interim according to reports a growing number of staff and faculty members are also calling on america's former intelligence chief to resign from his position as a visiting professor reporting from new york. r.t. . and now for some international news stories in brief in kenya at least twenty feet killed off a group of learned the still in the shopping center firing guns and being hungry
10:23 am
although fifty one have also been injured and people are still being brought out of the building on a stretcher is a witness said the gunman asked muslims to meet say no whose lives would be targeted the authorities claim at least seven hostages have been taken no group has claimed responsibility for the household. supertight food it was signed a one of the strongest storms this year with wind speeds of two hundred forty kilometers an hour is sweeping towards hong kong it's already is trying to the philippines and taiwan triggering landslides and severe flooding most of storms expected to hit china on sunday morning over four thousand people have already been evacuated from coastal areas close to taiwan. chancellor angela merkel looks set to win a third time when germans go to the polls for a parliamentary election on sunday germany has largely managed to dodge the economic problems that have crippled and number of its european neighbors but many
10:24 am
of its citizens is a better. decline in personal spending power and a rise in part time work only one has more. it's billed as europe's economic success story but german voters feel the country is split between the haves and the have nots germans are rich yeah ten percent of germans are they own a boat fifty to sixty percent of all the capital and the gap is getting bigger. our society is divided there are places in germany like here in moore homes 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. i think if you were to ask someone from spain they would tell you germany is an economic land of
10:25 am
milk and honey but that just isn't the case perhaps thirty years ago after reunification and the pressures 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 spain here isn't greeks who come to berlin looking for work they are scandalized by how low our pay is it's not enough to survive. in the run up to this election the main opposition is campaigned on a platform of introducing a minimum wage of eighty euro fifty per hour the current german government has dismissed those calls i'm going to merkel's 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. there are so many jobs around that barely enough so you can survive i think eight fifty proposed by
10:26 am
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 . any meaning jobs are no good and you can contribute to pension was four hundred euros these days everyone in a family has to work i sit with my roommate we realized we make to a little cash it's a case of either we give up our studies and find more work or we lose our flat. whoever comes out so and so from sunday's ballot is going to face the continuing task of keeping jimmy's economy on track while at the same time trying to please a workforce which feels underpaid and under appreciated peter all of the germany. is coming out were examined because of the behind being crazing amount of friendly
10:27 am
fire investment and if they find special reports to us. we talked before about people getting in trouble throughout the usa just for gardening in fact according to the christian science monitor a couple of florida has been fined five hundred dollars a day until they dig up their vegetable garden which is on their own property and mealy people who write these articles draw comparisons to communist russia where people weren't allowed to grow their own food at last night's state allowed it yes the revolutionary period in russia forced agriculture 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 was stalin and khrushchev gave out a lot of doctors which are private summer houses where people guard and also there
10:28 am
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 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 for. 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 this 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 u.s. 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 the majority of its life span where you could guard it up as you like excluding the brutal revolutionary period but that's just my opinion.
10:29 am
