we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid u.s. secretary of state john kerry responding to israel as it goes on the. nuclear program. results. as the u.s. and e.u. began key trade deal critics now saying it. was. unprecedented. success to turn to earth right. now the longest torch relay in olympic history is set to continue we'll bring you the details.
it is monday morning here in moscow this is live from. the news team welcome to the program today the progress made in geneva over iran's nuclear program is in danger of being told even before the sides meet again next week no sooner had the current negotiations ended without agreement u.s. lawmakers said they wanted to slap yet more sanctions on iran and that's on top of an israeli diplomat. killing off what it called a quote very bad deal. details. a delegation of high ranking american officials is currently in jerusalem where they will be updating prime minister netanyahu government on these talks that happened over the weekend in geneva and the progress that was made and wasn't made the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says that the impending deal is bad and dangerous those are the
words that he used. was failed to be reached this agreement of course coming between iran and the united states russia france germany and bush and they're trying yahoo however saying that the proposed deal will lift the pressure of sanctions which have taken years to put into place and at the same time it leaves iran with its nuclear program and its enrichment capabilities intact. because it. has a nuclear threshold. we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid i think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interest of our country and of the globe particularly our allies like israel despite the fact that the diplomats diplomats could not come to agreement the united states and its allies have said that they have narrowed their differences with turnaround in
the talks that took place over this weekend the main difference comes from the objection from four months with france object ing strenuously that the proposed deal would be would do too little too could iran's uranium enrichment program or stop the development of a nuclear reactor that would be capable of producing plutonium the french foreign minister laurent fabius say that he could not accept what he called a fool's game the talks will resume in some ten days and then we will see a fresh bid to end this common standards. right there now the failure to reach a temporary deal is largely being blamed on paris whose roadblocks certainly took washington by surprise iran's supreme leader rallied on twitter against the french move that he described as imprudent and inept but political analyst aside mohammad marandi he says the u.s. still has the upper hand in the talks some believe that the french are in court
nation with the united states and it's a sort of good cop bad cop combination some believe that the french are this the current french government is very close both israel and the saudi regime and that they have a great deal of influence but it's very difficult to imagine under any circumstances the french really standing up to the united states at the end of the day if the united states is adamant that it deal should be struck i think that the french will fall in line and i coming up or throughout the day here on r.t. it's going to be crosstalk people of elements guests are debating whether crippling can be justified seeing they've left the country's economy in a total stranglehold and seen a lot of innocent civilians denied life saving medical treatment as well. priscilla t. as in for the in south after her on was not long was not transparent according to the nonprofessional if you have you can pursue but you have to be transparent. when you
establish your you for you you or your for you build a place in order to enrich uranium so you it's this i think kind of can understand information but again i don't want to go into detail into the know but i do agree with you when i was saying he is going to look at how countries view the western assault on iran for the last few decades most countries in the world disagree with it very strong majority against it it is the perception is is that the again the americans and its close allies hijack what we mean by the international community and you know what they could even be bombed to hell in the name of the international community which would be an absolute fraud george go ahead. yes exactly and in the case of iran the i.a.e.a. has never found that iran had a nuclear weapons program that he was diverting any. towards nuclear weapons
program even the us intelligence agencies have not found that iran is has a nuclear weapons program so therefore this this use us israeli policy against iran has absolutely real no basis at all on the law or on evidence. this week europe and the us will enter negotiations which they hope will result in a much needed boost to their cash flows they're sitting down to hammer out the so-called transatlantic trade and investment partnership the ongoing n.s.a. scandal could certainly tarnish the talks as peter all of our reports. the idea behind tough to the transatlantic free trade agreement is to generate billions of dollars of business between the united states and the european union well it all sounds great however the amount of snags that this deal is hits over the time since
it's been put on the table suggests that not everybody is happy with everything that it would. still feel a bit more about some of those stumbling blocks i'm joined by michael economic analyst thank you very much for talking to me now just over a shoulder over here just over your shoulder over there is the u.s. embassy now the john kerry the secretary of state says that the n.s.a. spying saga isn't going to be an issue when it comes to talking about trade but that saga has limited trust between the two countries how can you have trade when you don't have trust i mean. let's face it. states what's all the buzz about it politicians are saying oh this is very bad they're spying on it. cannot be sure for nothing but there is no real consequence of it you know how does that relate to business in particular if you will say one of the big giant german companies would you be willing to sit down
with one of your american counterparts do you trade knowing that perhaps they were listening in to all of your secret conversations of course seeing this in all the spying is not only about political issues but also about economic facts companies. buy it and. take the results of the spying for themselves but they cannot do anything against it there is a potential legislative minefield that comes from this and also the potential for the stripping of sovereign rights lots of people have campaigned in the e.u. saying that too many rights determined by brussels could end up seeing is that trade could end up determining the laws of a country how will it go down in germany let's face it this treaty is nothing else . then submitting the e.u. working for us to the good of us corporate crecy they want to put their own rules to the whole world and also to the you won't have any advantage of this is all
a hoax it's all a lie nobody on the streets wants it we have all rights we have all know they're working fine why should we sort of to the monsanto mafia they are the ones to profiting from this tweeting nothing else michael economic analyst thank you very much for talking to me there so the second round of talks on taft are underway but certainly still a long way to go to convince the people of europe that this is best for them and the successful adoption of this agreement promises both parties substantial gains the e.u.'s economy has promised one hundred nineteen billion euros annually from the deal with a ninety me another ninety billion going towards america in the profits do come at a price as journalist and author glyn mood he explains. it's based on the idea not just of getting rid of the barriers to trade of which there are very few between the u.s. and e.u. but of getting rid of what are called the non-tariff barriers and those really
amount to regulations things like health regulations safety regulations environmental regulations and so the whole thing is predicated on actually deregulating the european and american systems so that's a very big assumption because people may not want to have their food let's say for their environment more polluted for the sake of more money but that's precisely what would happen is the father be fewer constraints and therefore it's true it will generate lots of money for the bee companies but effectively the public will pay in terms of reduced regulation reduced protection and that is never calculated in these trade agreements it's always about the bottom line of the big companies and if i die he predicts a lot of corporations will abuse the right to take legal action against governments to push their agendas forward corporate sovereignty is about putting the corporation above the nation it lets a company sue a country and they can do that when they claim that their expectation of future profits has been diminished by changes in legislation all by particular station
already in place and i want to think will happen is that companies like monsanto will sue the e.u. for billions of dollars because they will say that refusing to allow genetically modified organisms to be sold here is actually a barrier to trade and therefore their profits have suffered and therefore under the tee to wriggle a sions assuming they go through they will claim to have a right to sue the european union. we're coming here live from moscow and talk about being back from all bits the twenty fourteen olympic torch was returned to earth along with a crew from the international space station also used lindsey frons has been following the historic journey for us the torch has been in space before but it's never been taken to space in the run up to an olympic games and actually been taken on a spacewalk and that's exactly what occurred it blasted off from the back door cosmodrome on thursday made it safely up to the eye assess nine crew members up there and then it was taken out on
a spacewalk on saturday by two cars minutes we were here live watching and it was very exciting to see the engineers actually walk walk the causeway not through the steps on how to get around the i.s.a.'s with that torch in hand of course it was not lit but nonetheless the spirit of unity and sportsmanship was up there on the i s s in the form of that torch now we watched as the capsule broke through the atmosphere and that large parachute opened up over the skies of kazakstan as it came hurdling back toward earth with three crew members on board russian cosmonaut fyodor yurchikhin american karen nyberg and italian luca parmitano and right here in mission control when the big red letters landed flashed on the screen a huge round of applause went up to see the torch back safely here on earth with the three crew members next it plans to go to the beautiful area out in the eastern part of russia and it's going to go to the bottom of lake baikal it's going to go to the top of europe's highest peak mount elbrus and it's going to continue on on
this longest relay olympic torch history and all the way to saatchi in february something that we're all watching and enjoying a lot but certainly this detour to outer space was something very momentous and historic to see happen. and so good to have you with us are about to today and still to come in this program but why grow. targets solidly all authorities coming under fire for a crackdown on foreign workers those details are just around the corner. and luck right on the scene plenty of search tree limb and i think richard. perle. on our reporter's twitter led an instagram led. me in the no lead
if you got nothing. to. start to construct your own. olympian bit gives don't want to meet gangsters you don't want to be drug dealers they don't want that blow with no time to be a kid came be we can see. you just made so over others i was like oh probably the hook. with thirty round clips. but it felt like. i said. i don't want to die i just really do not want to die young young a. lot
of fun your whole show common life should be making news all the face i said i'm going to. pleasure to have you with us here on t.v. today i'm sure. it's a busy monday for news here on our teeth thanks for joining us a rescue operations underway in the philippines after the biggest typhoon to ever hit the region has a well it's the theft of parts of the country in ruin thousands of troops have been deployed to help relief workers who are currently struggling through mountains of
debris that local authorities say more than ten thousand people may have died in the disaster the numbers are yet to be confirmed meanwhile the typhoon has already reached vietnam killing six and forcing hundreds of thousands to flee the coastal areas and is expected to move on to southern china where a state of emergency has already been declared a meteorologist robert corral believes that the region will regrettably see more super storms in the near future the intensity the energy in the storms in the pacific and gone up by fifty percent over the last thirty years or so and this is largely due to a warmer ocean wormer atmosphere so we're going to see more of these very severe storms so-called three four five category storms now in some cases when the communications systems are very active we can give good warning to other people in other cases when those are not there or not as robust it's very difficult for
everybody to know that it's such a severe storm is coming so preparation is going to be absolutely essential and the countries are clearly going to have to make the kind of decisions about how they're close or populated in order to minimize the impact. to riyadh we go where two people have been killed and dozens injured in the saudi capital the police crackdown on protesting migrant workers authorities have been trying to rein in the foreign labor force mostly africans many of whom are in the country illegally now misty for migrants to get their documents and check ended earlier this month and thousands of since been arrested some african officials have condemned the saudi government for the crackdown human rights groups are also sounding the alarm over what's being called the harnessed question in the gulf war. problem with. the radius really the way that in which the country regularly gets to present its soil. all workers in the country are governed by was known as the sponsorship
system whereby they are under one direct employer employer has an inordinate control over there beside you it is a difficult country to cover and so isolated in the. international. human rights we're going to be. in the right and i think it is difficult to get information out of it that being said i mean the crackdown that we're seeing right now is wide sweeping i think this is just the beginning of what's going to be a long series of frankly are stories emerging from. twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow russians are fond of saying that everything is possible in russia and apparently the same applies in neighboring. one motorist in the country go to a real demonstration of horse power when he tried to cross this road. thank
goodness for dash cam cameras you just never know what's going to happen on the roads not just in russia but right there in bello as well also a lot a right royal welcome as the dutch king is pelted with the rotten tomatoes during a visit to moscow by the lord national bullshit big party. find out what's behind their anger at r.t. don't call. right see. first strike. and i think you're. going to. be in the. world update time here on the program into athens we go where thousands of left wing protesters took to the streets in order for
a no confidence vote against the country's current government and the initiative was tabled by greece's main opposition party syriza but the move was defeated by a majority in parliament that stricken nation has been granted to multi-billion euro bailouts already but there is speculation it will need yet more cash to keep its crumbling economy alive. and separatists in eastern libya have gone a step further in challenging your stories in tripoli by forming their own oil for breakaway militias control of lion share of libya's crude and now intending to start exporting it for their own needs the central government is trying to take action and that's all facilities are handed back within ten days to tripoli has so far been unable to regain control of the self-proclaimed all part of this region which has its own shadow government and that. other main western syrian opposition group has laid out new preconditions for attending peace talks the syrian national
coalition wants damascus to establish humanitarian corridors to besieged areas and to release political prisoners the opposition has also stood firm on its demand that president assad steps down the syrian government has so far refused to accept such terms for the imposed. international conference in geneva. now the search for a two state solution to be israeli palestinian crisis continues as it has done for decades tel of even the closest ally of the u.s. warning that i should say washington's warning
that the continuation of building new settlements is no way to help the ongoing peace talks later this hour sophie shevardnadze speaks with a long legal former director general of the israeli foreign ministry about the hopes of a ever reaching a breakthrough. their mold of settlements is huge and probably irreversible and. the signal that the israeli government is sending
to the palestinians to the rest of the middle east to the world by by continuing even aggressively it to settle it is very negative is signal because if low the talks we look at it call clued in in agreement it will be called a peace agreement when we meet next time to talk with the palestinians in three or five who knows maybe ten years the volume of
the settlements will be bigger and the chance for a palestinian state smaller so i personally do not understand what this government is doing i know that a lot of pressures from the israeli right to go on settling but deprive the bit we pay in will ease enormous for this.
we're coming to you live from moscow remembrance day ceremonies have been held across the globe to honor the heroes on the victims of a first world war that ended ninety five years ago other conflicts are traditionally also remembered on this day including the catastrophic second world war a russian and british veterans are among those recalling their cooperation to bring down the fascist war machine as artist point like an opera. earlier this year the russian government was finally allowed to say a special thank you to british arctic convoy veterans who traveled to the save the union with supplies cheering the siege of leningrad the u.k. government gave its blessing for the veterans to receive russia's naval bravery award called the medal it's the result of years of campaigning because of illegal
snag that forbids the queen subjects from receiving foreign decorations it is very significant because actually generally people in this country and allowed to receive medals from other countries that is not the norm i mean dates back. to the mists of time with queen elizabeth first in a sort of rather aggressive way said my dogs will only wear my colors but this is now being waved in the case of the medal and i think it's because of this very closely it's been forged at a ceremony in downing street in june the russian president awarded the first twenty veterans where there is the in russia we see all those who contributed to the fight against nazi germany as heroes and it gives me great pleasure to ward you all with a medal. but what toward all the men him parked on the freezing journey through the arctic waters is still under way for the past four months the russian embassy here in london has been working hard to track down every single veteran eligible for the
across the meadow but let me show you the actual room where they work takes place. with the help of the ministry of defense and its medals office the russian embassy has been busy writing to veterans and many of them have been writing back and we have. really found through those people who are writing from their hearts they really thankful for this medal this was such a great sometimes we even read with tears these letters because it was really touching it's a medal that many of the men that took part in the convoys the youngest of. tim is now eighty six say they thought they wouldn't live to see their tears or people should record misunderstood and be straight forward to receiving this year. in fact to raise their own daughter and it's very hard to where it was going on social networks around those are there any kind of understood sort right that are drawn and often have their sons and jimmy's not the anyone over three thousand veterans
have responded to the russian proposal to award them with the magic. this is in no way the last chapter in a book which is about recognizing the war effort in both countries the man that brave the arctic when to say they didn't take that russia and britain have finally managed to come together to decorate them for the heroism all those years ago. oxy london. and i were coming to life from moscow thanks for joining us here on r.t. if you're watching from the u.k. right now you're about to go underground with action written see however if you elsewhere in the world prepare to get locked unloaded only on artsy.
