talks over iran's nuclear program ended arguments and no agreement with iran condemning france for defending israel completely rejected the proposals. this british listening post on the roof of its embassy in berlin is allegedly being used to intercept communications from the german parliament the chancellor's office and revelations like these are pushing some to stand up for privacy. the don't share our information about our customers if you don't have a warrant we meet the owner of a tiny tech company resisting the far reaching operations of u.s. spy agencies. this week a space walk starring the olympic torch russian cosmonauts take the winter games symbol into outer space for the first time in history.
the back of the past seven days top stories and the latest developments this is the weekly. fail to make a breakthrough in the latest round of talks over iran's nuclear program france has refused to accept any short term deal stalling the discussions with iran supremely accusing paris of open hostility towards terror on the set to resume in ten days from now before that a team of high ranking u.s. officials will brief the israeli government on the results of this week's meeting. a delegation of high ranking american officials is due to arrive in jerusalem today sunday now they will update the 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 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 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 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 led the opposition to the
current version of an agreement with iran and one of the concerns that was expressed by the french was that the agreement narrowed the 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 the big obstacle appears to be the future of iran's plutonium reactor which is that iraq 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 to date whether iraq is 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. well let's take a closer look at the main negotiation points world powers want iran to stop all
uranium enrichment at the twenty percent level which is potentially weapons grade iran should also limit the number of centrifuges and a lot more monitoring of its facilities in return for the unfreezing of tehran's assets and the easing of sanctions former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiation team after c.r.b. believes terror has demonstrated it is ready to negotiate in good faith but was dissing the contribution of the french government to throw some monkey wrench in the process and managed to sabotage the deal basically there's a very strong pro israel lobby in paris. there's a causal relations between paris and tel aviv there's no doubt in anyone's mind that the opinion team came with good intentions with a detailed proposal and prove their good faith in their negotiations there is no doubt in my man and minds of a lot of other people including millions in iran that
a lot of the responsibility for the absence of a deal tonight rests on the shores of the french government. hopes were high ahead of these nuclear talks with iran's new president hassan rouhani adopting a softer stance than his predecessor. the hard line conservatives back home a lot of tall happy with attempts to engage with the u.s. as we find out in a report coming up later in the program that. britain is operating a listening post in the heart of the german capital and legibly targeting the parliament and the chancellor's office revelations based on leaked documents hit a raw nerve in berlin which is already trying to get proper explanations from the u.s. over its tapping of angular merkel's phone when it's believed that he's dropping equipment is installed right here on the roof of the u.k. embassy within a stone's throw of the bundestag it's allegedly cable of intercepting phone calls
and 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 gens stumble from the german pirate party says berlin actually knew its 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 building what's going on there but i think that the german interior secret service they are not allowed to investigate on the las this is simply because germany right now is such a class partner of the b. of the us 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 company can now guarantee one hundred percent privacy but artie's miniport the owner of a small provider who has so far managed to prevent government spying. inside it over the 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 exhibition and 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 one thousand nine hundred ninety eight its 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 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 your. money 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 to do the same marina port r.t. utah. typhoon haiyan may have left up to ten thousand people dead in the philippines that's according to local officials although the red cross says only one thousand two hundred people have been confirmed dead so far the storm is the fourth most powerful tropical cyclon ever recorded and the strongest to hit the region the central city of tacloban was ravaged by the disaster leaving thousands of homes without a roof in vietnam thirty in provinces are being evacuated with over eight hundred sixty thousand people forced to flee coastal areas and the storm could reach the capital hanoi on monday afternoon china has also ordered the state of emergency in its southern regions or just a click away we're keeping updated on the devastation left by this massive storm
had to dot com for the latest reports and pictures from the scene now coming up a little later in the weekly artie's latest report on life in the guantanamo bay. i love it a lot of people think there's not much to do but there is definitely an abundance to do there's no in the inside for those held at the u.s. military base where detainees continuing their hunger strike or being force fed behind bars. still to come but first the symbol of russia's twenty fourteen winter games has made it to the stars the latest stop on the most ambitious allin pick torch relay was a space walk outside the international space station the first time it has ever made it into open space in the 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 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 cause minutes 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 after they 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. . this is the weekly learned from moscow still ahead for you this is a court is adjourned on the first day of the call of egypt's leader mohamed morsi we look at what's emerged from the country's revolution. down. in the. we speak your language. news programs and documentaries in spanish
what matters to you. a little turn a tip angles keep the stories. so you hear. the spanish find out more visit. more than a dozen detainees are still on hunger strike at guantanamo bay protesting the indefinite detention and the alleged use of torture at the facility but on the other side of the it's all sunshine and smiles as. reports. 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 established 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 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 fifty nine most officers come here for short term of up to nine months or longer deployment of two to three years far from a whole 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 there's the downtown 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 time off like a decent man and we go to the beach and of your eyes are active things for people to do m w r stands for morale welfare and recreation. almost every sport known to man is available to team get 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 costs just under five bucks and breakfast is half that price a downside though information or lack thereof for 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 costs 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 too are kept and thirteen here are now in a typical 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 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 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. egypt's deposed president mohamed morsi who long with fourteen muslim brotherhood members went on trial on monday only to see proceedings postponed until january the eighth alstad leaders facing charges of encouraging a deadly crackdown on dissent in cairo last december now this footage is from the opening of the hearings the first video of mohamed morsi since his arrest four months ago he refused to wear the mandatory white uniform for defendants and rejected the court's authority insisting he's still the country's legitimate leader during his transfer to prison police were confronted by a group morsi morgues in the capital and other cities has been true gauge public opinion on the prosecution of egypt's first democratically elected president. the. grammy it is known as the singer of the revolution the popularity of his pro-democracy song saw him badly tortured by the military and now despite fighting to bring down both hosni mubarak and mohamed morsi rami has little hope for egypt's
future as morsi goes on trial for incitement to kill protesters. and for the revolutionaries are now in the worst scenario we have ever been in since two thousand and eleven morsi should be tried but it's comic 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 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 against 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 group of transitional justice either we're trying everyone or meaningful we're taking them to the south africa bureau and many many of them but this talk of evil speech and that seems far away as pro morsi 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 r t cairo. with the latest round of
talks over iran's nuclear program failing to secure progress president has honey said tehran will not bow to international pressure and give up its right to enrich uranium while even before the talks began on thursday thousands were rallying in tehran chanting anti-american slogans and burning israeli flags artie's paul scott looks at what got them so riled. last and rouhani is recent speech at the un general assembly was said by many to represent a thorn in relations between tehran and washington a sign that the iranian leadership is keen to initiate warmer times 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 is 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 are 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 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 hollies willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start diplomacy 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 by the us government to suggest the sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent years 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. . just remind you we've got plenty of stories for you on our website right now including collision course a motorist in this central russian city got something of a medieval surprise at

c.n.n. do i think c.n.n. is you know completely telling it like it is no i see is a have an agenda i think through is is bought and paid for. cause the world comes to pennsic capital this week the libyan energy industry is once again in time all but this time it could mean a cold wind so first sunny is i'll explain in just a minute i'll not want the full support the most anticipated i.p.o. since space but yes i'm talking about switzer happen this way because if you do not this is all not one the assets misused of us happens in most cases it's legal to
catch us on the court just girls and also about the money not to still to be seen as a showing thomason house and by. he's at the big texas house what he's been up to sort of a lot to get through but first let's start with libya. so libya's energy industry is once again in turmoil and this time is a city that could face the consequences of the country's chaotic oil and gas industry while the protesters have occupied a gas terminal in western libya causing off the green stream gas pipeline that deliver supplies to sicily so for more on this topic i'm now joined by implants. hi there stuart can you tell me what do you make of the latest troubles in libya and what does it mean for the libyan oil industry and indeed it's like this could be pretty seriously for for italy if they do manage to prevent the gas flows because obviously we're heading towards towards winter and it's really to a large degree depends on this gas coming across the mediterranean from libya any
which is the main italian oil and gas company has it's pretty convinced that we can find alternative supplies if the libyan supply is shut off completely but obviously that's going to it's going to be expensive for the italians to have to bring in l. and g. perhaps from elsewhere even russian gas to once before so it's not good for it is not good for libya because they're losing in very important revenues of course of course as you say if we are going to diversify or find their gas from elsewhere silly libya is going to be the biggest loser in all of this. but it's and the authorities continue to say they repeatedly say and stress to their own people that they are losing something like one hundred thirty million dollars a day from the disruption to the oil and gas sector the oil minister the prime minister the government authorities to make can please really almost to the to the activists to please stop because you're ruining your own country here we are.
