the latest news and the week's top stories you're watching the weekly here on ars he was me. thanks for joining us tara and six world powers failed to make a breakthrough in the latest round of talks over iran's nuclear program because haitians are set to resume in ten days before that a team of high ranking u.s. officials will brief the israeli government on the results of this week's meeting on his policy. a delegation of high ranking american officials is due to arrive in jerusalem today sunday now they will update prime minister netanyahu as well as his government on these weekend talks that took place in geneva about iran's nuclear program the talks took place between iran and six world powers they began last
8:02 am
thursday and they ran until saturday this was an unscheduled extension the israelis will be briefed by the american delegation on these talks as well as the gaps that remain at the same time the u.s. secretary of state john kerry is flying to abu dhabi now there he will be meeting with the foreign minister of the united arab emirates and he'll be updating him on the iranian negotiations the u.a.e. along with saudi arabia and bahrain have been staunch opponents of any kind of agreement between iran and world powers and as i say israel is involved on this issue part of the criticism about the talks is that although iran will be receiving economic incentives as part of a deal the understanding from the israeli side is that these would be tolerable adjustments that would not threaten the viability of the entire sanctions regime against iran now france has led the opposition to the current version of an
8:03 am
agreement with iran and one of the concerns that was expressed by the french was that the agreement narrowed differences but did not infect eliminate them one of the comments made by the french foreign minister was that fonts did not want to be part of what he called a con game the important point however to make is that iran is and was ready to strike a deal what we do understand is that an outline agreement prepared in geneva is believed to have specified that iran would stop enriching uranium to twenty percent purity which is close to weapons grade and it would also convert its existing stockpile of this material into harmless oxide in addition iran would scale down but not stop its in my. meant of uranium to the three point five percent level that is needed for nuclear power stations the big obstacle appears to be the future of iran's plutonium reactor which is at iraq which could provide a nother route for a nuclear weapons program this facility which is currently being built is due to
8:04 am
become operational mixture the french may also be concerned that iran is trying to speed up the start up to date whether iraq is a ground breaker is certainly still not clear but it is part of the major stumbling block as to why the talks failed these past few days the talks are due to resume in ten days time. unless i take a closer look at the may negotiation points world powers want iran to scale down your a richmond from its current twenty percent level which is potentially weapons grade iran should also limit the number of centrifuges and alarm monitoring of its facilities in return for the unfreezing of terrence assets and the easing of sanctions their former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiation team cover for c.r.b. believes tehran has demonstrated it's ready to negotiate in good faith but was the singular contribution of the french government to throw some monkey wrench in the
8:05 am
process and managed to sabotage the deal basically there's a very a strong pro israel lobbying in paris. there's a causal relations between paris and tel aviv there's no doubt in anyone's mind that the reunion team came with good intentions with a detailed proposal and prove their good faith in their negotiations is nor died in my mind and minds of a lot of other people including millions in iran the lot of the responsibility for the absence of a deal tonight rests on the shore of the french government. iran's leader that hasn't rouhani said iran wasn't about international pressure on being forced to give up its right to enrich uranium even before the talks began on thursday thousands were riding in tehran chanting anti-american slogans and burning israeli flags on his porch court looks out at what's called them so riled. us and rouhani

is recent speech at the un general assembly was said by many to represent a thorin in relations between tehran and washington a sign that the iranian leadership is keen to initiate warmer ties with the global community but not everyone is keen for this to happen. hard line conservative protesters threw eggs at the president upon his return to tehran a malveaux was uncomfortable with the idea of increased diplomacy with washington have launched the first ever down with the usa contest the idea is to find the most creative and to us propaganda contestants are invited to submit photographs posters caricature poems him and blogs all relating to the slogan down with the usa over three thousand dollars or up for grabs for the winner there will be a prize for the best idea to mark death of america which will renew the concept of death to america because of the arrogance of america the message is clear for as
8:07 am
long as the us policies are hostile to us we will continue to use the slogan. well the slogan first came to prominence during the one nine hundred seventy nine iranian revolution when the u.s. backed government was overthrown and since then it's been widely used by critics of washington those critics now favor hanis willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start to play misty with a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like these and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very verifiable accountable transparent process is in place despite efforts
8:08 am
by the u.s. government to suggest the sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent days on the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to anti american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be taken down and with talks over iran's nuclear program looming large later this week it's not just the international community president rouhani has to convince put scott r.t. . and coming up later in the program aussie's latest report on life in gone time of day. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do there's no and as a sign for those how the big u.s. military base or detainees continuing their hunger strike being force fed behind bars. britain is operating a listening post in the heart of the german capital allegedly targeting the
8:09 am
parliament the chancellor's office the revelations based on leaks documents hit a raw nerve in berlin which is already trying to get proper explanations from the u.s. over its topping of angular merkel's phone and it's believed the eavesdropping equipment is installed right here on the roof of the u.k. embassy within a stone's throw of the bundestag it's allegedly capable of intercepting phone calls and long distance communications all across the city gerri demanded explanations from london pointing out that intercepting data into graphic buildings is a violation of international law but the u.k. simply said it won't comment on intelligence matters however. from the german pirate pass he says but in actually knew its allies were listening. the german government of course didn't notice what was happening on the roof top of the u.s. embassy and the u.k. embassy because it's clear for everybody who looks at that building what's going on
8:10 am
there but i think that the german interior secret service they're not allowed to investigate on the las that this is simply because germany right now is such a class partner of the b. of the u.s. and they want to become a first class partner so our government is simply selling our privacy and their own privacy to climb up the ladder. in the face of america's far reaching surveillance program hardly any tech companies can now guarantee one hundred percent privacy does not the owner of a small provider. to provide government spying inside it open a data center and here we're taking an exclusive tour through one of the few data companies standing up to the u.s. government in the name of privacy i think we do residential our very well pete ashdown is the owner of the x. mission and independent internet service provider based in salt lake city utah this

tower here handles most of our e-mail unlike most power players in silicon valley x. mission refuses to give the n.s.a. backdoor access to its networks since nine hundred ninety eight x. mission has rejected u.s. government for more information stored on private servers like these we don't share our information about our customers if you don't have a warrant the majority of law enforcement requests ashdown says he's received and refused have been subpoenaed is lacking accountability and necessary approval by a judge this is actually an amiga since launching his company in one thousand nine hundred three ashdown says he's filled no more than two customer data requests from the federal government you're going on the current climate of america's unrestrained surveillance matrix has been facilitated by corporations who have spent years secretly working with the n.s.a.
8:12 am
regulation government contracts and. monetary compensation are in my opinion the three reasons why they're cooperating ironically utah is probably the most unlikely home for a privacy champion roughly twenty seven miles away from x. mission. is the n.s.a.'s newly constructed one point five billion dollar data center i think it's a strain. on the tech industry of utah all the n.s.a. activities are a stain on american internet businesses ashdown has vowed to face jail time if that's what's needed to protect his customers from being monitored what surprises this fourth amendment advocate is that big data companies like google won't promise to do the same marina porton i r r t you tell the symbol of russia's twenty fourteen winter games has made it to the stars the latest stop on the most ambitious olympic torch relay also
8:13 am
a space walk outside the international space station the first time it has ever made it into open space all seasons of france witness the historic moment from mission control. well it's a very exciting thing to watch live here because what we're actually getting to see right now is down on the floor the engineers are essentially walking the cosmonauts through the steps of making it all the way around the international space station with the torch in hand so it's again a leg of it's his fourth spacewalk and sergei it's his first now of course the torch has been in space before once for the one thousand nine hundred six olympics once for the two thousand and six but this time in space it's actually going on a space walk it's not just inside of a shuttle or inside of the eye it's this so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to the cars minutes and make its appearance out in space the symbol of unity and sportsmanship being seen all over the world now the torch has
8:14 am
a couple more days left on the i assess before it heads back down to earth with a three person crew on a soyuz spacecraft again and so it's then going to rejoin this historic relay to saatchi for the kick off in february of the olympics so we will be bringing you all the live developments of the olympic torch right here on r.t. . and sift through big glitz and glamor to choose the most beautiful woman in the universe was gone and the easy coming out will tell you which will be eighty six abusing queens who made their way to moscow it's a great clown is to. see what happened there i don't know. piers leaders who are going to russia to work. for crime or did not do. we are the worst were police officers.
8:15 am
polygraph results. people you can trust the police on. don't beat people anymore i mean it just doesn't happen really. in the course of interrogation why because there's been this is like meant no because the psychological techniques are more effective in obtaining confessions than physical abuse and they were off taking they could do what they wanted they can say what they wanted and there was no evidence of what they did or what they said. this is the media lead us so we leave the media. by the sea push to secure the play your part of the musical. where shoes that no one is asking with the guests they deserve answers from. politic only on our t.v. .

this is the week chaos the welcome bond while the dawson days haney's us still in hunger strike at dawn tunnel a day protesting that indefinite detention on the alleged use of torture of the facility but only at the side of the bob wire it's all sunshine and smiles as all season is to say trick and our homes. despite misconceptions give lho is not just a geo to be or not to be shot it's also a forty five square mile military base with no plans of going anywhere. full of signs of the stablished american life it is a navy base and we just happened to have the camps in here home to the only mcdonald's on cuban soil a subway sandwich shop a starbucks and a taco bell vested financial interests that you go to starbucks and. all of these
8:17 am
other places that help to set up a logistical support for the troops that are all over the there are about five and a half thousand people living and working on the base roughly half serve the actual detention center the u.s. government has been leasing this territory since one thousand nine hundred three for just over forty five hundred dollars curiously that is still the price today but it's said that the cuban government has been refusing to accept this money for decades the castro government said you know we don't want this lease anymore in the united states' position was that it's a binding lease and in the lease it actually says that it can't be broken unless both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract servant territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand nine hundred fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from home life isn't put on hold and you can't date certain people wait and certainly have if it's away from your like rank system then you're

allowed to you know there's the downtown lyceum and open air movie theater playing all the hottest hollywood blockbusters and it ticky bar to let loose after a hard day's work even though most say schedules aren't that intense anyway we actually get quite a bit of time off like a decent man and we go to be an end of year as our activities for people to m.w. our stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is available to team get well on state of the art facilities. i love it it's a lot of people think there's not much to do but there's definitely an abundance to do. being in a remote location doesn't even have to affect eating habits and all you can eat lunch cost just under five bucks and breakfast is half that price a downside though information or lack thereof or just has to be a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the
8:19 am
beast dubbed no stream a stand by some soldiers even so we're told those serving here are banned from looking at websites like wiki leaks for example once classified always classified. even if the information has long been made public there are other strict regulations in place too fun fact about guantanamo apparently the life of an cos here a little more than a life of a detainee if you run one of these babies over the fine is ten thousand dollars. there's a very strict speed limit in guantanamo and it's a very slow speed limit and people say that that's that's all about the quantised somewhat ironic at a place marred by human rights scandals officials make a point of showing journalists how well prisoners two are kept and thirteen here when i wanted to call so for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a two piece here some head and shoulders shampoo the less compliant ones have to
8:20 am
wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time i was going to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prisoner library lovingly displays the best of their art for t.v. crews to see a lot of pre-selected books to avoid certain topics violence sexual and religious stuff controversy shelves packed with magazines d.v.d.'s and video games plenty of ways for legit prisoners of war to pass the indefinite time they're kept here without charges and party guantanamo bay cuba. and for more insight into the notorious detention center alter his documentary big gun tunnel trap and about fifteen minutes and if you run out of cash and need a ticket for the metro in moscow a little bit of exercise will get you a free ride and in motion on our website see how new vending machines are taking payment in squats in a bid to make everyone more active. plus

prosecution of egypt's first democratically elected president. rami a star is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him tortured by the military and despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi romney has little hope for egypt's future as morsi goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters are going for the revolutionaries are now in the worst scenario we have been since two thousand and eleven. morsi should be tried but his comment that mubarak trial should be held up at every turn while the morsy trial is moving along so fast what shocks me is that the authorities never seem to have the will to push through the court cases of remnants of the former regime tahrir square once the heartbeat of the revolution has become just another busy roundabout in two thousand and eleven and two thousand and thirteen people came here demanding bread freedom and social justice but after the military
8:23 am
ousted mr brotherhood president mohamed morsy hundreds have been killed and thousands arrested eating some to fear the freedoms and justice will never become a reality admits this violence rights groups have little faith that the trial of mr morsi and other mr brotherhood leaders will be fair this coming at a time when there is a general crackdown that's a brotherhood a very selective prosecutions on the part of the justice system looking only at brotherhood members with impunity for security services meanwhile the retrial of egypt's other ousted president hosni mubarak drags on the feeling the security apparatus continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict the military is entrenched and so on and forth and so on interest again and again the problem now that we need to sit down and agree on a specific transitional justice either we're trying everyone on meaningful we're taking them to the south africa bureau and many many of them but this talk of evil
8:24 am
speech and that seems far away as prime morsy protests and clashes with security forces continue to rock the nation the fear is morsi is trial will not deliver much needed justice for egypt but rather set the stage for further instability and turmoil. for. typhoon haiyan may have left up to ten thousand people dead in the philippines but according to local officials the big government is not able to come from the figures the central city of tacloban was ravaged by the disaster leaving from thousands of homes without roots there where cross has confirmed one thousand two hundred people have been killed by the psych loan which is the strongest ever to hit the region and it's now approaching get now where hasa million people have been forced to flee coastal areas. just a click away we're keeping you updated on the devastation left by the storm had to alter dot com for the latest reports and pictures from the scene. the

glitz and glam in moscow a whole new level as a to six of the world's top beauties competed for the title of miss universe on his case to peel away was there for us. this year that twenty thirty has been won by miss benette was the twenty five year old. graduate she was it's was like the wind was diminishing most of the judges in the person was the contest when she spoke about. the c b a c the i the contest i swear that we should also get all the dates were wrong was i knew the luxury of the answer was even if the beauty was in the suits in the miss universe katie says she is indeed a lucky lady it is a star studded event we do not sleep just to go and we had this even the time of
8:26 am
the areas look up on the stage strumming he strings was in the woods that was why the lights go. round and we know that this competition is watched by one billion people from one to the sea countries it was. and up next that's promised documentary about the infamous detention camp the going time of term. illegal immigration is a hot topic and everyone always says that immigrants do the work that no one wants to do well let me explain why that is i would occur just on vacation got into a taxi term by a former migrant worker who used to make a living in moscow he told me that he really worked hard driving unloading trucks
8:27 am
after five years he came back home and bought a house yes from the seller that russians can't even survive and he was able to buy a house employers and russian america say that locals don't want to work are demotivated well want to margaret worker on a salary that could build a bright future one compared to a local who can't even make ends meet while you could see why the market workers are a lot more motivated let me put it to you this way if you knew that you had to work five hard years of some awful labor under awful conditions somewhere far away like brazil or germany but would be able to pay off the house would you do it i think you would let's not buy into this myth that locals in country x. don't want to work they just don't want to work in complete futility for table scraps but that's just my opinion.
8:28 am
works with. us. plus. the president did not keep his promise. two years later one ton of money is still operating. could shutting the door on that detention center really and the trauma of guantanamo. and can the closing of a prison really liberate those it once held captive.
8:29 am
it's not that i feel lonely i am lonely for him and who could possibly understand what i've experienced in guantanamo when i talk about it is most. no one is able to imagine. and the flag flew over camp delta and guantanamo bay cuba where you know the detainees are housed. to honor all those service members and civilian who have lost their lives during the global war on terrorism and those who continue defend the ideals of freedom and democracy throughout the world so i really appreciate that because i very much enjoyed serving my country. it's painful and it makes me sad that there are.
