over again even two from moscow when i was kevin i mean it's just after six pm now here this is the weekly around over the top stories of the last seven days in this week's interlude between the two rounds of crucial talks over iran's nuclear program a sense of mixed signals on the one hand the u.n. watchdog declared that atomic projects have been virtually frozen since president rouhani came to power but on the other hand u.s. lawmakers are insisting yet more sanctions are placed on iran move that threatens to derail the deal to buy more say looks at what else is jeopardizing the diplomacy to the pieces are in place. we have time and again said that i know no circumstances would we seek any weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons nor will we ever be wrong and how you. over it with respect to

this is an activities to be undertaken by going. to meet all present and party. woman or words flowing relations yet just as the deal in geneva was on the cons between the world pollens and iran came concern from france a surprise move that stalled the talks but and friends new friends in israel who'd been the traditional stumbling block up to now still small ting from the threats and intense rhetoric of the recent ponced is will refuses to budge that's a bad deal. it's a dangerous. because it keeps iran as a nuclear threshold nation. we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid as for the main bargaining chips the sanctions like me not could prove a dealmaker when congress is having none of it putting president obama in
9:03 am
a tough spot i think rouhani has staked his position on the idea that he can improve relations with the rest of the world and so far he's been saying a lot of the right things for the province for israel to be very wary as well of any kind of. talk from the iranians and then there's the bargaining hammer israel building most subtle moments when things don't go its way approving more units only last month leaving us congress to get trigger happy with more sanctions don't draw us into a bad deal with iran we already know how israel's benjamin netanyahu feels advocating his case on twitter through yet another colorful graphic presentation at the red carpet will be rolled out for its newfound french friends present it's tough to predict whether the p five plus one will equal unity when they get back around the

table next week in geneva. they are to moscow. well should the talks result in something israel isn't happy with it's reportedly ready to join forces with a former sworn enemy for a possible strike on iran britain's sunday times newspaper suggest saudi arabia is working closely with israel's mossad on a military campaign if iran's nuclear program isn't curbed by an agreement in geneva under the reported plan saudi arabia is understood to be allowing israel use of its airspace it would also assist israel in deploying combat drones helicopters and tanker planes the saudis are furious and they're willing to give israel all the help it needs that's what an anonymous source allegedly told the newspaper these sunni muslim gulf kingdoms alarmed that she dominated iran could get a nuclear weapon it's a concern shared by israel two iranian political analysts mohammad marandi thinks that if this scenario played out that we know when it. well we don't know if these reports are true but the saudis and the israelis are moving closer and closer to
9:05 am
one another however it's highly unlikely that the saudis or the israelis would really want to iran. would be a loser as they would be seen in the grass around. r.v.'s lead iranians would retaliate against what you know very well and it would create an economic catastrophe for the world. that would mobilize the whole middle east especially people on the streets in support of iran they would isolate israel after all the americans with all their firepower. failed in their attempt to bring about syria because world public opinion and american public opinion simply would not accept it . well if such plans do exist the might come to life even if next week's geneva nuclear talks ended agreement of some kind we're asking you tonight if you think a deal can be reached thanks to voting if you have will so far more than half of you voted think israel's opposition will prevent any deal about

a third if you believe there is a chance but only if the west recognizes runs right to nuclear energy a little over ten percent with this pessimistic saying that neither side needs a deal so badly they would rush into it and the final five percent there say iran will agree to a deal only after sanctions leave it with no the choice you can add your voice to that swell r.t. dot com good to hear from you always. syria could be free of most of its chemical arsenal by the end of the year if another country turns up willing to take it on the ambitious deadline that was set by the international chemical watchdog was part of a roadmap which also says all toxic stockpiles must be destroyed by the end of next june but the biggest problem now is a lack of volunteers to take on the delicate task of eliminating more than a thousand tons of highly poisonous materials norway was first to give no its refusal there was mirrored by a few days ago which saw a series of protests against the country being the destruction side of syria's
9:07 am
arsenal that alarmists chris bambery told us it should be europe's wealthy nations to step in to implement the ambitious elimination plan. my understanding is that they will go to france and i think it's really the onus is on britain or france in terms of the western european powers to deal with this because as i say they do have chemical weapons although we don't advertise the fact that britain and france have stockpiles of chemical weapons they do have the ability to do that the french and the british have the facilities word you can dismantle these things safely they have the expertise surely that's the better option has abided by this deal the west should really put its money where its mouth is here it's up to this deal it's sending ships in this case norwegian ships to deal with this but the norwegians call you mean they don't have the expertise to dismantle and you can see why chemical weapons see the will not to take them in and i think it kind of smacks i resent over the fact that really in the end this deal has come or actually putin
9:08 am
brokered a deal. and no syria has abided by the agreements of it and i can't hear but feel there's a kind of resentment in european capitals that actually a deal has worked. well even without hosting syria's chemical weapons the use big drug deeper and deeper into the conflict intelligence chiefs believe more than a thousand young european muslims to join the islamists are now fighting in syria it's thought they're being recruited through social media the counterterrorism coordinator says that you have this agenda goes further than toppling assad is actually a real threat to europe too. in the process of trying to understand better the reason why so many europeans are going to syria where we start being concerned it somewhere and that's what we understand many of the i mean the joining. you would get up. in groups which not only wants to work through a sad but the global jihad really wreak and share fully the project of

a few more but he's also made clear that it won't be more than a few more direct obama promised to close the notorious facility on day one of his presidency he's now in his second term it's only a president can do it and the idea that it's you know that it's congress's fault is just not correct it is the president the top holding these men in detention some the president has to come in and this. it's hard to tell right now exactly how one would be down here doing this mission. and stacy churkin at artsy guantanamo bay cuba. but more shoreline tonight it seems that driving drones is not easy american sailors got themselves egypt because of the rogue robot plane when a royalty tells you what went wrong also lying to notice for getting starstruck if

a moscow market is seen ineffective police chiefs kicked out and triggered raids on foreigners without permission to be in the country indeed at least two hundred legals were traded from russia after that single incident but as paul scholes explains next is some of the tip of the iceberg. migration in moscow is a sensitive subject right now following last month's murder of russia back of allegedly at the hands of an azerbaijani migrant and the nationalistic riots that followed the issue is firmly in the spotlight and an arty camera crew has found out just how sensitive the topic is we went to a market on the outskirts of moscow to try and film an interview with mohamed magick the president of the russian federation of migrants despite getting private mission to film it soon became clear a presence was not welcome. you russian though i have to repeat myself the saw it with the fence we have in chile set up our interview away from the market.

9:24 am
moscow in the step i was lasted just about an hour and so far police have rounded up thirty five individuals who don't have the correct type of walk. around one hundred eighty thousand work permits are granted each year according to mohammed this figure is far too low. to address it so you need to conduct a survey as to how many migrant worker a small school needs if it needs a million workers you should issue a million work permits not a mere hundred thousand. it's believed around three million migrants are working in moscow twenty four percent of the illegally is creating a vast black market for cheap labor market is some of the key to keep out of the spotlight let's go to. moscow. or the picture of moscow but actually if you're in the u.k. but shouldn't be you can expect a text home office now taken to sending photo messages directly to illegal immigrants telling them to get out the problem is it's not always an eagles on the receiving end we've got that story coming up next. the

a foot of microscope in the late edition of. 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 is actually planning while he is reading those lovely speeches off of teleprompters people who are
9:28 am
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. i don't know well from three worlds apart just a few years ago revolution i think of the path of relic of the called war era to the epitomized resistance to the imperialist all the things of the west but with the onset of the arab spring revolutions seem to be back in fashion again nowadays
9:29 am
often supported by washington and its allies how to distinguish revolution from an orchestrated one well to discuss that i'm knowledge. of greatest living absolution mary. well i thank you very much for your time sir now in the beginning of. an uprising many of the organizers tried to style that revolutions after the cuban one and the movement that's your father that was famously called the july twenty six moment so in libya the revolution was called in a similar fashion separate seventeenth revolution in syria they call this march fifteenth revolution do you think these events of the same nature can they all be called revolutions are they similar sometimes is. words are used in a way that has different meanings. i think that.
