into outer space for the first time in history. the latest news on the week's top stories this is the week when else he with me here national problem and welcome to the program. tehran and six world powers failed to make a breakthrough in the latest round of talks over iran's nuclear program negotiations are set to resume in ten days time before that a team of high ranking u.s. officials will brief the israeli government on the results of this week's saying all his policy has more for. 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
9:02 am
iran's nuclear program the talks took place between iran and six world powers they began last 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 nice being with the foreign minister of the united arab emirates and he'll be updating him on the iranian negotiations 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 and part of the criticism about the talks is that only those in grand will be receiving economic incentives as part of the 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 made the
9:03 am
opposition to the current version of an agreement with the ranch and one of the concerns that was expressed by the french was that the agreement narrowed to differences but did not in fact eliminate them one of the comments made by the french foreign minister was that france 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 the big obstacle appears to be the future of iran supply. tonia reactor which is a rock which could provide a nother route for a nuclear weapons program this facility which is currently being built is due to become operational mixture the french may also be concerned that iran is trying to speed up the start up date with iraq as a groundbreaker 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 and let's now take
9:04 am
a closer look at the main negotiation points world powers want iran to stop all you're in richmond the twenty percent level which is potentially weapons grade iran should also limit the number of centrifuges and allow more training of its facilities in return for the unfreezing of terrans assets and the easing of sanctions that discuss this further let's now cross to lane professor of political science at the university of paris weston and here line defense mr get laid welcome to our to you it's good to have you with us so france nowadays is widely accused of actually blocking progress in this latest round of talks on iran do you think that france is the main obstacle to saying that the french position impeding a breakthrough. well actually you know around this you bring in nuclear bomb issue there's a lot of political theater and it's difficult to imagine that translates south
9:05 am
could actually stop. agreed to by all the others because france is not a major power it cannot really oppose the united states so there is something very strange in the emir goings on around the negotiations right now we cannot we can only surmise that's true the real reason behind this blockage and i would sympathise that probably since the president of france alone is judah good to israel on the seventeenth of november in a week's time for two days he doesn't want to ruin the visit so france wants to appear as an obstacle to the agreement with iran and precisely because these really is pose this agreement but in the long term. as these developments around syria showed france is not strong enough to decide anything by itself what role does france as relations with the gulf countries play when it comes. to iran
9:06 am
well it's quite sure that there is a defacto alliance between gulf countries saudi arabia on the wire and israel on the other as far as the syria issue is concerned and. these countries of course do not want an agreement with. iran they have some influence but not i would say not much if you look at what's happening in mali. they support their the groups of people there are against the prince there so they have limited impact are some. forces pushing for a new agreement like for example the car manufacturer the shock. i don't think too much should be made of this thing the visit to israel probably is the main sticking point right but it isn't just iran better once sanctions are lifted and in it can be mutually beneficial i mean wouldn't western companies welcome that too well u.s.
9:07 am
and french companies are in the starting blocks there are bankers in on the lifting of sanctions and they want to resume trade with iran for obvious economic reasons and as i mentioned before a major french car company is is really just start a business and b. is lost a lot of this of it's just to iran so it's pushing in the direction of an agreement . this so please carry out yes some of the opposition or some of the problems might have to do with syria we don't know because. of the negotiations but i think the reason why the u.s. is change its position as far as an agreement is concerned is that if there were an agreement it would drive a wedge between iran and syria are going to solve the far right there pierre lang

professor of political science joining us live from paris amistad the land thank you very much indeed for your time thank you. now britain is bracing listening part is to in the heart of the german capital allegedly targeting the parliament and 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. stopping merkel's phone and it's believed that eavesdropping equipment is installed right here on the roof of the u.k. within a stone's throw from the burn to start and it's allegedly capable of intercepting phone calls on long distance communications all across the city germany demanded explanations from london pointing out that intercepting data in diplomatic buildings is a violation of international law but the u.k. simply said it won't comment on intelligence matters however. from the german
9:09 am
pirate party says berlin actually knew the allies were listening in the german government of course did 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 big what's going on there but i think that the german interior secret service they're not allowed to investigate the l a's this is simply because germany right now is a subclass partner of the 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 phrase america's far reaching surveillance hardly any tech companies can now guarantee one hundred percent privacy but also he's maria part nyman the owner of a small provider who has so far managed to prevent government spying. we decided to

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 access very well pete ashdown is the owner of x. mission an independent internet service provider based in salt lake city utah this tower here handles most of our 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 a judge in the u.s. government for some 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 as 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
9:11 am
the federal government make sure you're among 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. 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 stain 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

9:14 am
it's his first now of course the torch has been in space before once for the ninety 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 i assess so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to the cars minot's and make its appearance out in space the symbol of unity and sportsmanship being seen all over the world now the torch has 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. . now to sift through big glitz and glamour to choose the most beautiful woman in

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 a stablished american life it is a navy base and we just happened to have the camps in here home to the only mcdonalds on cuban soil a subway sandwich shop a starbucks and a taco bell you got busted vested financial interests there you go to starbucks and . all of these 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 us 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
9:18 am
both sides both countries agree to that that strikes me as a very odd contract server and territory that the u.s. has occupied against cuba's wishes since one thousand 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 don't tell me see i'm an 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 deuce and monitoring or to be an end of year as our activities for people to do m.w. are 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 an 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 a lot of the t.v. programs broadcasting here are army focused. and internet is almost nonexistent the base 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 to fun fact about guantanamo apparently a life of an ego on a cross 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
9:20 am
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 too are kept and thirteen here we're now in a typical cell for a compliant detainee at guantanamo they would be allowed to eat books have a two piece here some head and shoulder shampoo the less compliant ones have to wear the orange uniforms and get only two books at a time who's going to the other side so you can see the books detainees can't come in here but the prison or 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 now some more news making

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 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 why it's 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 gets 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 operators continues to shape court decisions means egypt's future is hard to predict maybe three entrenched influence in its own interest again and again the problem now that we need to sit down and agree on a specific transitional justice either everyone on meaningful toward one or

even sign of the heiresses broke up on the stage strumming his strings as well as i was told so was it by the by go melody route and we know that this competition is watched by one billion people from london i see countries that cross the line. the hollywood talking point takes on a point going to be steven seagal in worlds apart right after this break. remember way back when we first talked about the first downloadable guns that could be printed out on a three d. printer at home while technology moves pretty quickly because british police have already busted in legal armory pretty out firearm parts and special three d.
9:28 am
printers this technology may make gun control literally impossible in the same way that banning and burning books has become futile in the past they used to be able to just burn books or forbid them from being printed but in the age of the internet all you need is a scanner and an internet connection and the information that's found in a book cannot be destroyed because it is out there on the magical ether of the air at so basically the near future any person with even half a brain and some patients can start making guns in their basement which means a gun control laws will basically become pointless because they'll never be able to catch all the people doing it nor will be able to take the guns not even obama or the hardest of hardcore liberals this technology could be the best thing to happen to the second amendment ever but i shushed my opinion.

on the welcome to the park it's a plot that seems unrealistic even by a hell of a stand there it's russia and the united states that get so frustrated with each other that bad diplomatic communication it's got so bad and minimal until one famous actor makes a couple of calls here and there on sas everything. steven seagal played out hole in real life and he joins us now on worlds apart mr siegel thank you very much for your time now one of the first guests on the show was dana rohrabacher son of turner from california who came to moscow in june and he was investigating suspects looking for information about suspects in the boston marathon bombing but he told me back down that that trip would have been possible without your participation how did you become such an unlikely cultural ambassador for the two countries.
