on friday evening here in moscow one is kevin now in our top story then tonight there's been a much needed break through the u.n. security council as its permanent members agree on a draft resolution overseeing syria's chemical weapons design movement and as russia has long been insisting it doesn't contain any threat of outside military action in this and now is more of the deal which seemed to be impossible from the outset. this is a major break for her when you think about how less than a month ago it looked like russia and the u.s. would never agree and obama was rallying support and getting ready to bomb damascus the resolution vote on syria's chemical weapons is expected friday and outlines a legally binding compliance but no threat of sanctions or military action and the five permanent members of the u.n. security council reached an agreement on thursday over the exact wording of binding and enforceable tax to eliminate stockpiles of according to the geneva according to the geneva agreement put forward by russia and the u.s. now the resolution doesn't allow for immediate chapter seven action of the u.n.
charter in the case of noncompliance but it would need to be reviewed and put to a vote if that does become the case in the future here is russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov it is a signal to the resolution includes an agreement that was reached in geneva stating that the security council can go back to reviewing the resolution only in the case of a breach of its proceedings by any of the sides including the opposition or in the case of chemical weapons use by any side is not happens on the council can act on those cases under chapter seven as well only in accordance of the degree of that violation and if it is one hundred percent proof so the resolution also calls on the opposition to assist in the disarmament process this is an important point for russia that both sides be held accountable for violations of the resolution also fully of course as the geneva communique which was outlined in june and supports a transitional government which would have full executive power and not be closed
off to members of the current government because for a meeting with all syrian sides as soon as possible now the vote comes as u.n. chemical inspectors have resumed their work in syria they're investigating seven cases of the use of illegal agents and hope to deliver their findings by the end of october is breast foreign minister sergei the pro will be addressing the u.n. to. assembly on friday he will also be meeting once again with his u.s. counterpart john kerry the u.n. envoy to syria and i think they do have a lot of reason to be a little more optimistic that there could be a way out it might be a bit of a different atmosphere at meetings this friday a way out of this two and a half year deadlock over the syria crisis. meantime back in syria itself media reports suggest that at least thirty people have been killed in a combo when the damascus observers in a nearby town said the explosion took place near a mosque soon after friday prayers spoke to antiwar company and says the fury of
chemical weapons in syria shouldn't take attention from the rest of the fighting that. it shows that we're turning towards a diplomatic solution least on the issue of chemical weapons but the other issue that still remain outstanding is what will happen outside of the issue of chemical weapons will diplomacy be pursued by the united states or will they continue to find as they have the opposition are in the opposition so that they that happening and trying to deepen the conflict over there was another way i think certainly the security council reconvenes and this chemical weapons agreement is off track we could be you know we're going to happen again but i would like. syria far more willing the rebel forces to make gauging the pharmacy on many issues if you remember it was the syrian regime that accepted the russian and american proposal for the geneva two peace talks and the rebels that rejected it so i certainly think that despite what we hear in a lot of united states media there's no reason to think that syria won't hold up here is a good bargain particularly if it is so enthusiastically pursued the russian proposal
very diplomatic solution. to speak at the u.n. shortly when he does we'll cross to it next iran's president expects a draft plan by october and working with the u.s. and international community over his country's nuclear program as sound of his comments came as he gave a news conference in new york in the past hour the spirit of diplomatic optimism at the u.n. also extended to a rare encounter which saw the u.s. secretary of state meet his reading counterpart for their country's highest level talks in decades their meeting centered on to iran's atomic program and it fell within the framework of the seven nation to go see a shift in tone is one of the big welcome both sides remain cautious though saying actions will speak louder than words international law professor middle east expert told me iran is trying to win the hearts and minds of people worldwide. around fields in a fairly comfortable position and they felt that the policy of ahmadinejad the pre-disaster of mr rouhani was not helping at all from
a legal standpoint iran feels that it has done everything it could and if there is anything you want to gain public opinion it knows that the media is has waged a war against it it has verified it is that devilish it and it has portrayed it in a position of a threat to the international community now it is trying to make a case to the international public opinion and they have changed the tone. coming up should barack obama go on trial for crimes against humanity well that's what the president of bolivia is calling for exclusively tells r.t. what's behind these accusations coming up. next the almost daily deaths people crammed into filthy shacks and long work days in torrid this is the dark side of bringing qatar's football world cup dream to
life the gulf states being hit with criticism for human rights violations it turns door into what some describe as a miracle city government boarded a raft of immigrant workers to get the capital ready for the twenty twenty two event but the investigations now reveal that labor has been dying at a shocking pace because of atrocious conditions where so far the authorities are your response is to bring in reinforcements and to promise to look into the playing rights activists football fans and players those banerjee three for the strip cutter of the world cup host title international trade union confederations but at the forefront of a campaign to stamp out these labor abuses its general secretary has been talking to r.t. . part flight state that. extreme thing to say i know in the twenty first century but that's the reality workers exploited from the moment they are forced to pay money to recruitment agencies in the pool of india philippines other right general african nations they sign a contract they go to off in the context for not only four hundred dollars
a month. many of them field work but they are forced to leave the one nobody thinks of those like that where you have high and sometimes more. fit than certainly no c.e.o. would accept this from living in those conditions then of course they are often abused and by the work he's dangerous more than one worker a day will dying. and yet aid. if they want to leave they can't leave the country because they have basically the oh no that they were owned by the employer who had to find an exit or in data transfer of working right help their passports are often held against the law it's appalling it's appalling and frankly it could be fixed we've offered the government solutions but have no political will to fix it dr wright mcquade's from the slavery international he says he hopes the scandal will
trigger a reaction in catherine to force the government to improve its rights record now that would like to see the world cup being used as a mechanism to change in our country i think what part dog simply would say is that the abuses which are going on in qatar are of such magnitude that the qatari certainly at the current point in time don't demonstrate themselves as worthy of the system which facilitates forced labor and slavery we think that part is the legal system of our particular. migration immigration law there that needs to be from them and. i would prefer to see rather than it being the tar tart changes i think if qatar does not change it certainly should be taken away from it but it will be much better to see the system of can follow which facilitates forced labor right across the gulf region is broken fundamentally qatar in relation to the world
cup could be a mutual change in relation to the whole region much more to come this hour an hour to including why russian journalists furious over the prolonged detention of tokyo for working amid the recent greenpeace protests. the inevitability of blowback and the perverse logic of terrorism ever since the us . acts of terror networks of political. deadly massacre in kenya is a case in point so is washington strategy that is worse than the disease. to build a new. mission to teach me. this is why you should.

a lot of attention to their causes some suggest they probably knew what to expect given multiple warnings so but the activists went on anyway possibly knowing how much public attention the action would generate an aid has generated a lot of attention especially ahead of the arctic conference this week where the leaders of the arctic nations together with experts from one industry were discussing ways to explore the resources in the arctic as well as ways to minimize the damage to the environment and the russian president was asked during a conference of fog the detained activists and he said obviously they are not tyrants but greenpeace has clearly violated international law by sending activists from the shipping inflatable boats to try to board the ship or the president suggested that the activists cheat trues other forms of dialogue ishmael anything you can britain's got mud there that says some military make believe will make wars look less less lethal the food ministry of defense hopes using drones most results

counterpart for his aggressive foreign policy the spanish channel spoke to him shortly afterwards this is what he had to say. the. i want to remind john that when obama was elected president his said lizzie aim was to end all wars but during a time of his presidency the number of words only increased libya for instance the us organized an outrageous military intervention that was followed by the killing of the country's president and after that libya's oil wells have fallen under their control the finance rebels would fight against the rulers and don't support imperialism and capitalism on top of that they run a worldwide surveillance network what we need to establish acord world powers and international human rights organizations take the judges we need to file a collective lawsuit aimed at putting an end to this genocide i think that the threat exists for any country with vast natural energy resources especially when gas i understand this is a direct threat to venezuela in order to secure energy resources for his own

we have to look at this in two ways first of all there's a somali issue going on here and then there's an international issue if you look at the statement made by al-shabaab about the westgate attack one thing was kenyans you better get out of somalia or else you'll face more than this and the second thing was the international community you've got a superstar supporting the kenyans and supporting the others in fighting in in somalia we are meddling and somalia targeted assassinations air strikes drone strikes all of us active to billions there. they've scattered. groups but also created new ones and clothing al-shabaab so yeah the idea of blowback here is a surprise we are we are seeing. the remnants or the outgrowth of what our policy the united states' policy is spend in the last twelve years there. peter but to me just over three hours' time

alone recently unveiled a three point five billion injection into thirty four key sectors hoping to spur a third industrial revolution. ordinary people have managed to survive the crisis because france has been a rich country for the past ten twenty thirty years and older generations have proportionally more money than the younger ones so in the family the transfer phenomenon is common meaning the grandparents are helping their grandchildren finances studies but we can't go on like this for much longer. and there's your skepticism it's rises reflected not just in opinion polls but increasingly in the election outcomes as well. the referendum in january two thousand and fourteen the french do they want to stay in the european union do they want to stay with. do they want european lula's to be stronger than national laws. it is right here the decisions on everything from public finances investment unemployment are debated
and made the problem seems to be that there are more debates than decisions prompting the french foreign minister to say that this place needs a boss but france cannot afford to stall as french president francois hollande is still under great pressure from berlin and brussels to deliver on his economic promises in a draft text in april along. the socialist party attacked merkel and her selfish intransigence and called for a confrontation with germany over policy reforms and it was if the economic situation in france dramatically worsens compared to germany it will take france on a different political course that will diverged from the german one this will create a complicated conflict inside the e.u. if that happens tensions will get worse a collision course that will rock it's already unstable boat as germany itself is dealing with growing add to your frustration over having to bailout the naturally on healthy neighbors so we seem to stick to germany only because an anglo merkel
