we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid but the u.s. shrugs off israel's condemnation of a proposed nuclear agreement with iran as tensions among world powers. and the elusive deal. big money big trouble brussels negotiates a free trade deal with the u.s. that could mean billions in profit but critics say it'll ruin european democracy and make corporations more powerful than governments. which has successfully returned to earth. and now the longest torch relay in olympic history is set to continue we'll bring you the details.
2:01 pm
from our studio center in moscow this is our team with international news and comment. in agreement with the un's atomic watchdog which allows it access to several of iran's nuclear facilities including the controversial iraq heavy water plant there was no progress in the latest round of talks on how to limit iran's nuclear program france is widely blamed for storing a breakthrough while israel lashed out at its allies for negotiating what it called a dangerous deal. was it so long ago that the talks did seem promising you had the iranian foreign minister meeting with the european union policy chief foreign policy chief catherine ashton and the mood in that meeting was certainly one of optimism but israel has been opposed to these negotiations from the start saying that iran will cheat anyway and in fact israel has always been against iran's nuclear program but what netanyahu says is that easing sanctions on iran would be
2:02 pm
like to quote on yahoo putting a hole in a tire on the other hand you have the united states which is pro these negotiations of what was seen as possibly the most serious american israeli standoff and dispute in the years that. it's a dangerous. because it. has a nuclear threshold made sure. we are not blown them 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 interests of our country and of the globe particularly of our allies like israel john kerry also says to quote him that israel needs to recognize that no agreement with iran has of yet been reached on any kind of israeli opposition is essentially premature what kerry stated was that the time to oppose any kind of deal is when you actually see what it is now we did earlier hear from iran after the talks aimed
2:03 pm
it on saturday that it was in fact powerless who was responsible for blocking any kind of deal the french foreign minister fabius saying that we don't want a fool's deal what we're hearing now from the u.s. secretary of state is that the blame is on iran's shoulders kerry saying that the major powers were in fact united on an iranian nuclear deal but it was the rain ians who were unable to accept it kerry saying that. on saturday when the proposal was presented to the iranians but to quote him the fleet had signed off on it we had signed off on it but he ran wasn't able to accept the deal at that particular moment. despite that statement by john kerry all sides have acknowledged significant progress was made over the weekend barbara slavin all through senior fellow of the atlantic council told me earlier that she believes that is due to roland's positive approach it's iran that's changed its attitude toward the talks
2:04 pm
most radically let's face it this is foreign minister zarif who came with a new proposal at the last round of talks and who is very serious about wanting to get an agreement for him for rouhani this is a second chance it's what we call a do over they didn't manage to improve iran's relations with the united states and get a nuclear deal the last time they were in power and i think they're determined to do it now. well he rolled supremely to recuse paris was showing open hostility during the weekends talks on twitter he called the french approach imprudent and then it but i'm told is that there's a number of things to determine from his position that we negotiating table going to solve the problem i was told really before the geneva meeting that the french were going to take a very hard line on the iraq that's a far a k. heavy water reactor so that shouldn't come as a surprise then there is the fact that francois law and the french president is
2:05 pm
going to israel this week he'll score some brownie points there for sure and then france has very important relationships with the gulf arabs including the saudis and wants to sell more weapons so i think there are a mixture of motives. and in cross talk later this hour peter lavelle and his guest debate whether the whole of line stance of western powers against iran's nuclear program is justified. priscilla he is in in for the in south after her on was not iran was not transparent according to the nonprofessional if you have you can pursue but you have to be transparent and. when you establish your you for you you you put you build a place in order to enrich uranium so you know it's this i think kind of command information but again i don't want to go into detail into the know but i do agree with what i what i was saying is that if you look at how countries view the western assault on iran for the last few decades most countries in the world disagree with
2:06 pm
it very strong majority against it it is the perception is is that they again the americans and it's a close allies hijack what do 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. 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 enrich uranium 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.
2:07 pm
crosstalk coming away a little later today here in r.t. the us and e.u. are putting together a free trade agreement that they're hailing as historic and mutually beneficial but critics say it's ignoring something democracy now a single market for europe and america means not just regulation we have differences between the two sides will be removed but its claim to big business will also be able to overrule the will of governments however the e.u. was promised big benefits here of one hundred nineteen billion euros every year when i discussed this with the straight talking host of a kaiser report next kaiser a little earlier and he was very critical about the deal to say the least. this is unbelievable act of corporate hubris they've invented something now the corporate state or the investor state so that corporations have the ability to override sovereignty to override country's legal framework for profit seeking and rent seeking ok is the most any piece of legislation that private corporation did this
2:08 pm
remember saying it's absolutely mind boggling mind numbing or i've. just come down for a second because somebody come to you and say wait a minute this surely means my job prospects in europe are going to be improved why not let this deal go ahead because it's my life my life at stake at the moment in a devastated european economy i want a job and this can improve my prospects because it gives all the power to the entities that have destroyed the european economy the big banks that have gutted the european economy this now gives them ability to sue the countries for damages that they impose on these economies for compensatory damages from the economies that they're just devastated they can then get the governments to sue the citizens for more money after they stole the money or strong words from me but what i want to ask you shortly brussels will listen to what you have to say they will have those concerns and they will surely make those laws protecting consumer interests and indeed the environment from any invasive policies of the u.s. unfortunately and this current era with the n.s.a. spying on every country what i'm going to angela merkel in europe she said i don't
2:09 pm
want the n.s.a. spying on me now she's laying down supine just letting the american this new law which favors american corporations to re-arm are like a little slap in the woods. well this free trade agreement suggests europe is not letting the revelation that u.s. intelligence targeted its leaders and citizens get in the way of business or the heels of the spying revelations the e.u. complained of a lack of trust so. economic analyst whether the frustration is enough to hinder a lucrative trade deal. just over our 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 germany and to you is nothing.
2:10 pm
of the united states politicians are saying oh this is very bad. but there is no real consequence out 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 in all the spying is not only about political issues but also about economic facts german companies are aware that they are speired and thirty americans 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 go to determine by brussels what this 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
2:11 pm
then submitting the e.u. walking force to the good of us corporate prosy michael economic analyst thank you very much for talking to me there so the second round of talks on tough to underway but certainly still a long way to go to convince the people of europe that this is best for them. the most ambitious leg of russia's a limp dick torch relay has been completed the symbol of the twenty fourteen winter games in sochi was taken for a space walk by the crew of the international space station and now it is safe and sound on earth artie's lindsey france has been following the men to strip. right here in mission control. 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 three crew members russian cosmonauts. american karen nyberg and italian luca parmitano and we watched as the capsule broke through the atmosphere and that large
2:12 pm
parachute opened up over the skies of kazakstan as it came hurtling back toward earth the torch has been in space before but it's never 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 i assessed 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 it was very excited to see the engineers actually walk walk the cars minutes through the steps on how to get around the recess with the torch in hand of course it was not lit but nonetheless the spirit of unity and sportsmanship was up there on the i assessed in the form of that torch 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 solve in february
2:13 pm
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. if you love her more square with you twenty four hours a day still ahead for you this recording memories british special for unclear from russia for their actions in the second world war remember across the globe. in a few moments. when western politicians and media invoke the phrase international community it almost always reflects the thinking and agenda of washington and its closest allies around the world used in this matter the international community is in fact a very small minority.

president obama despite being king liberal loves to flatter the troops he loves their courage selflessness and teamwork as he said in his state of the union address but what he doesn't love are their expensive injuries which the troops are going to have to pay three times more for according to yahoo news the president's administration wants to force military retirees to get out of tri-care their current plan and added to obamacare the plan calls for them to raise premiums from up to ninety to three hundred forty five percent within five years one example provided by the free beacon estimates that a retired army colonel with a family currently paid four hundred sixty dollars a year for health care would have to pay around two thousand dollars make you pay even more for your war injuries apparently that's what obama's actually planning
2:26 pm
while he is reading those lovely speeches off of teleprompters people who are against the post nine eleven war against who knows what are often told that they don't support the troops well to the people who say bring the troops home never advocate tripling their health care premiums no they don't all of the. chicken hawks who send the troops off to die in questionable wars are the ones who want to make them pay even more for their injuries but that's just my opinion. there is obviously more for the ladies because it's pink. women who wanted to avoid rape they really needed to buy guns environ how to use them i'm. sure this is the one that i want to go away from once again it's the fear that women are definitely the target of the gun lobby and you don't kill them when you're killing money but if so many would he would just prefer. i'm noticing more and more if
2:27 pm
that's really scary marketing tactics which implies that women have some sort of moral obligation to tell guns to protect their family and young girls shoot out here too so we do have a pink or. more kids young kids choke on food than are killed by firearms if being armed made us safer in america we should be the safest nation on earth were clearly not the safest. lead. margy dot com is launching a special project to mark the appalling scale of violence in iraq. we want you to
