3:01 pm
from a studio this is r.t. with twenty four hours a day so there's an air of anxiety in geneva where a long anticipated iran's nuclear program could potentially be signed although foreign diplomats and the iranian delegation sound optimistic and a further details about just what is happening at the moment have been almost impossible to extract. in geneva for us. tough diplomatic work clearly progress what do you know what's happened so far. between plus one foreign minister have broken up for a short while at the moment presumably those foreign ministers to go and get. very tense negotiations now we know that they will be. in a short while but we did hear. foreign minister
3:02 pm
a little and he said that the agreement that's being discussed today consists of three stages and he said that he can reassure that that potential agreement would contain public recognition of iran's right to your rainy i'm in richmond but as i said they're not short break now i said to reconvene so we're going to be following those tools as they get back into the meeting room at the intercontinental just briefly was the specifics of the deal clearly posing a few stumbling blocks. the foreign minister spoke before going into these grueling negotiations this morning saying that they had similar concerns that there were a number of small but important issues that still needed to be ironed out and that was echoed by russia's deputy foreign minister a little earlier when i spoke to him and he explained to me that one of the main
3:03 pm
the vital sticking points throughout these negotiations has been a rack heavy water facility in iran which could potentially produce weapons grade plutonium but the crux of this deal really is that iran wants to continue enriching uranium for what it calls is what it calls our civilian purposes and. according to any agreement that is. according to any agreement that has come up with today they would have to agree to stop enriching uranium to a purity of over five percent in exchange they would get a limited relief from economic sanctions for six months so at the moment we're waiting for these talks as i said to reconvene it's very much up in the air at the moment and it could go either way. we'll be talking to you just a little later. in the meantime thank you very much. from geneva.
3:04 pm
or political analyst and former m i five agent and in motion told us it's important to remember there's more than just nuclear issues at stake here. iran is sitting on top of a huge range of not true at all and gas and things like that and of course we should not forget that they did. i think decade ago about beginning to trade some of those resources in europe. and that's where the. battle to keep began to get really heavy diplomatically against iran and threaten so this sort of whole issue around nuclear weapons program real unreal hume's to be a little smokescreen to try and karoly run into a tree continuing to trade its all natural gas in the petro dollar and so sure up the american economy that way. the major obstacle to the deal is israel's opposition to any hint of a compromise during the previous round of talks two weeks ago the country applied considerable pressure to influence the positions of france and the u.s.
3:05 pm
ortiz paula has more now from jerusalem israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu continues to be as critical as ever he has consistently call this a bad deal he has expressed skepticism over the raimi and statement that they are not intending to build a nuclear bomb and he has also said that the lifting of sanctions does nothing more than merely give them breathing space now those are going statements by the israeli prime minister has seen his relationship with the united states hit an all time low the obama administration has criticized his all or nothing approach as the israeli american relationship to terri eight so what we've seen is an increase in the warming of relations between the israelis and the french the french president francois hollande was here in jerusalem earlier this week and the two countries spoke of mutual understanding of unbreakable bonds of common history and shared values many saying that netanyahu now sees the french as his new hero and this is
3:06 pm
of course because of the french criticism against the deal in fact it was the french that many creditors having prevented it deals on going through before. at the same time there are reports security in the has been for quite a few days now that the israelis are working with the saudis behind the scenes that the possibility of a military strike is now back on the cards as this deal is signed off the reports suggest that the saudis will give the israelis a space where there is talk of some kind of tactical support that they will give to israeli warplanes if indeed they're trying now who follows through with his threats of a military strike once this deal is in fact signed off. we spoke to john limbert the former u.s. deputy assistant secretary of state for iran and he was among the diplomats held hostage during the the tourist crisis at the u.s. embassy in tehran more than thirty years ago and believes it is israel not iran which has become more hardline what we've seen i think in the last three or four
3:07 pm
months since the election of president president rouhani and since some of the statements of the support of the supreme leader is i think a change of direction and a serious change of direction by the israeli friends tell me is within israel itself there's a lot of controversy over the issue of iran and what should israeli what should the israeli stand be and some of the more extreme stands that are come of that coming out which oppose any any deal are creating concern and concern in israel a lot of people are quite have been criticizing the prime minister look what. prime minister netanyahu seems to be asking for is not a negotiated deal but in fact an iranian surrender where they are pressured into simply give giving up well that's that's not
3:08 pm
a negotiation that's a so that's a surrender and if you get if you do squeeze somebody so hard that they surrender such an it's such an agreement simply isn't going to last. well we'll be following the progress at the nuclear talks in geneva throughout the day and night on air and online at r.t. dot com also there on the website we're asking you about the prospects of an agreement so do go there to have your say on the issue because here for me are. thousands of people have spilled out into the streets of many cities in germany to commemorate an anti fascist activist murdered in the early ninety's the government on a crusade against the views promoted by far right groups artie's peter oliver was at the event in berlin for us. members of the anti fascist group anti far as well as all the left wing organizations are marching through central perlin now this is saying i knew all march the takes place to commemorate the brutal murder twenty one years ago of a left wing activist who was stabbed to death in
3:09 pm
a subway station by members of a right wing it used to organize sation now those who've come out steve take part in this march say that the fight against fascism and against nazi ism is as important now as it ever has being we saw in the past. could make to make the second world war and the. treatment of the usual people and of the communists of the professors and we will not repeat this experience. behind the fascism is always good capitalism reason that we have seen in history that every time we have a crisis in society precious and gets us the threats to society innocent passionately to those who are punished by the crisis which is the poor the working class they use migrants who have to flee from trysts in their own countries from war from poverty from hunger. that are coming here demonstrators up on the roof of
3:10 pm
the building say just behind the demonstration retail it's all going over relatively peacefully a few firecrackers being set off a lot of flares and a lot of of hosh chanting towards their food the the fall rice said this or this march has been heavily policed in the past we have seen clashes between far right groups and the anti fascist organizations the police have been and circling these these marches this year they've also shortened the route in which they've been taking to keep it limited to a. a two block square area to try and make sure that they can't be any counter-demonstration staged by the far right at those clashes. that we have seen in the past can't take place. german chancellor angela merkel wants to have a world with libya putin over ukraine hats off to brussels and moscow exchange accusations of blackmailing kiev into accepting offers over integration deals. has
3:11 pm
more. the german chancellor angela merkel voiced her intention to speak with the russian president in person at the earliest possible opportunity about the turnaround of ukraine which as we know the signing of the association deal with the european union the first and foremost mission of angela merkel according to herself is to persuade the russian leader that the eastern partnership initiative is not directed against russia have been fearing this comes just basically hours. himself welcomed the idea of holding a three sided commission between russia ukraine and the european union on how to alleviate potential economic losses we should. eventually joining. with the e.u. and also. some of the european countries some of the member states accused russia of blackmailing ukraine out of signing this is something russia had a very harsh response to meanwhile several hundred people are still protesting in
3:12 pm
independence square we're expecting this protest to multiply on sunday when the country marks the anniversary of the orange revolution of two thousand and four the event which changed the political landscape of the country all that i mentioned in my report which i had done a little earlier let's have a look at that. back to square one for ukraine's politics or key of central square to be precise in two thousand and four the orange revolution started here at independence square the event which dramatically changed political life in ukraine and set it on the integration course. filled with people again here because their president took a turn around well these protesters have been furious with the decision. to morrow other people believe ukraine may have in fact. decision to suspend the preparation of signing the association agreement in zone a free trade with the e.u.
3:13 pm
is the only one possible in. the current difficult economic situation which we now have in ukraine do you have a delusion that life will be better in the e.u. talk to polish people talk to gary and right now the e.u. is you know kind of a death spiral may be you has little right now to offer crane hours after the korean government's decision reports emerged that unocal which told his lithuanian counterpart in a phone call that russia economically blackmailed key of out of signing the deal with the european union. i don't know what the ukrainian president was talking about with his lithuanian counterpart maybe we should all scar american friends about that well of saying that ukraine would not enjoy trade benefits with russia if it formed a free trade zone with the e.u. is blackmail how would one describe these statements by european officials i disagree that the agreement could be signed later it would be very difficult because too much risk is involved ukraine has missed
3:14 pm
a chance to remove the main obstacle in its way through integration with the e.u. because when i heard some dodges found out yesterday that ukraine has suspended not cancelled but suspended negotiations with the e.u. and wants to review everything we heard a threat from the e.u. to ukraine all the way up to organizing mass protests this is pressure and blackmail having received no promise of compensation for potential economic damages from aligning with the e.u. give wants to create a three party commission with brussels and moscow to find a way to alleviate those losses which suggest unocal which has merely suspended not council the association strife the opposition meanwhile says it will continue taking people into the streets and demands that the president is impeached. reporting from kiev in ukraine there's a lot he's been gathering expert analysis somehow kiev could benefit from signing potential trade pacts and use what we've heard. the opportunity to be part of an
3:15 pm
absolutely huge free trade zone it's a fantastic idea but the problem we really have is that already the european union model has been deeply compromised by the addition of countries that weren't ready such as belgariad and rumania the european union itself really has to concentrate on its own internal economic problems to say that this is a sort of a unexpected totally unexpected move is very strange because of course you can quest to balance and see whether it's interesting as well. as for example the european union to dictate to greece. or to perth to go ok other countries and then there's a stable and franzen's and millions of people losing their jobs. i think that it became clear to the ukrainian president beach that if you signed their deal he is not going to get anything financially the e.u.
3:16 pm
so basically office thinks. tangible you know it doesn't offer immediate economic benefits it says that ukraine at some point in the future will have access to the e.u. markets but when will this happen. well on our website we have the following of reasons why he has decided against further european integration to share your thoughts in the comments section on this. the us oil lobby well and truly was itself forcing through a pair of bills that would make testing extremely expensive federal regulation a thing of the past coming up after the break. for the future. of the show with all the technology keeping the moscow metro
3:17 pm
rolling new modeling. ways in the oil industry and the dream team of robots who places too dangerous for humans. all the latest news and innovations here and signal. the future. again if we you take out your personal example off the government topping your phones and you know you're seeing them later on to be years later you know some governments cannot afford to do that not only you know again some prominent journalism also getting some has a state i remember thinking at the time and i discovered all this if they were tapping my fall for this really in consequential summation demist been tapping into about telephones.

has been an unusual twist in the political career of israeli. political program should have landed him in jail for racism in the mayoral hot seat read more on the accusations of plunging into radicalism. and ambitious plans for three d. printers as medics hope to use the technology for the market starting with human hearts. protesting could soon become a thing of luxury at any drill site in the united states courtesy of new laws co crafted by the oil lobby aside from forcing demonstrators to shut up five thousand dollars for a rally the bill would also excuse the federal government regulating the fracking industry. reports. when
3:20 pm
romania granted the u.s. or giant chevron more than a million acres of land to drill for shale deposits thousands of romanians took to the streets to protest. they soon found out there was little they could do to protect their soil. in poland farmers stood up against chevron to fight fracking to no avail fracking pumps a high pressure cocktail of water sand and chemicals the underground to release shale gas from bedrock environmentalists say it has the potential to trigger earthquakes as well as pollute the groundwater and the surrounding countryside the problems will show it with shale gas mining in poland is a question of secretiveness and kind of not telling people the real truth about what's going on and not always telling never telling the other side the downside and i discovered this to be true with a polish government and for the polish authorities because they are in fact on the
3:21 pm
side of these big corporations walski partly shot his documentary drill baby drill in poland he says polish state television refused to broadcast that you know normal people. can get the information to fight against the corporations and the normal people you know do the middle class people their objective is really to protect the land here to protect their place and the chevron. the corporations are here to exploit the land and they're going to leave but the farmers will be here and this is really what the fight is about us energy giants drilled both abroad and at home and congress has been more than helpful to them domestically this week the house of representatives passed a bill that would impose a five thousand dollars fee on anyone wishing to stage an official protest against the drilling project. to become law the bill also needs to make its way through the senate before being signed by the president this is. pathetic sad silly
3:22 pm
attempt by industry to squelch democracy opponents of fracking on both sides of the atlantic or even more fearful about the future of the democratic process as their governments and major corporations negotiate free trade agreements like the one between the u.s. and the e.u. that would effectively enable american companies to bypass european courts and challenge e.u. governments and international tribunals whenever they felt that laws in the areas of public health the environment or social protection interfere with their profits and the opponents say it would give trans nationals even greater access to their soil and leave the people with even less say about their land going to check on our team. and talk to tony juniper one of britain's leading environmentalist tells us they'll be a serious price to pay in the future. it's more money for some people in the short term and those people happen to have very powerful leverage over government institutions this is not about whether this is
3:23 pm
a better energy source or not in an economic sense it's basically a rigged market that the environmental costs are not being paid for by the shale gas companies therefore we get a false illusion as to this being a cheap energy source when in fact it's only cheap now because we're passing on the costs of it being used into the future for our children and grandchildren indeed we're already beginning to see some of the costs of this kind of energy being used in the in the present and that hurricane that hit the philippines a couple of weeks ago is an example of the kind of extreme weather conditions that we can expect to accompany rapid warming of the atmosphere. fun of some more global headlines violent clashes have broken out in the turkish capital between riot police and protesters are a group plan changes to the education system security forces does first demonstrators using tear gas and water cannon the government plans to close a type of education institution to prepare students for high school exams saying it will replace them with private schools typically cost more money. the

i'll be back with the news team is moving just have a half an hour from now in the meantime we check out what keeps moscow's famous metro on track and on time and technology update that's something the brain. there's now an all new form of humanitarian aid for the twenty first century created by members of the occupy movement this is nothing to do with hunger or homelessness what a different key problem in the so-called first world debt the rolling jubilee project has already bought around fifteen million dollars in personal debt for americans around the country most of the financial obligations that they bought were for medical bills and now the people who had to pay these bills are free from their burdens the group claims that the secondary debt market is very cheap and
3:27 pm
that they were able to buy the nearly fifteen million dollars in debt for only four hundred thousand dollars the secondary market exists because banks try to sell consistently unpaid debt to third parties for less than a nickel on the dollar right now i would be begging the rolling jubilee project to get rid of my college loans but alas this is always purchased anonymously so it's all pure luck who gets their debt purchased the important thing about this project is that they're actually doing something against the evil system instead of just blogging about it and although fifteen million dollars is a time to drop in the debt bucket it may have really saved the financial lives of many americans but that's just my opinion. back in the day barack obama was elected because he was deemed to be the very end to sis of george w. bush now instead of seeing differences between the two presidents we were reminded about what both have in common particularly like poll numbers for us on this
3:28 pm
program we ask is obama serving bush's fourth term. if you're thinking about an alcoholic drink associated with russia it's probably not going to be one that springs into your head but they've been making it here on the black sea coast for more than two thousand kids and there's an industry which really can compete with the best the rest of the world has to offer i've come to meet some of the people growing the greats and to see if i can find out the secret to the perfect place. to my. eyes.
3:29 pm
hello and welcome to technology updates on today's show we learn about the technology that keeps the moscow metro rolling. new serving a modern techniques make waves in the oil industry. and we take a peek through the innovation looking glass in this month's focal point. but first today's technology means that robotic help is no longer yesterday science fiction making many walks of life both easier and safer and this is especially true of this next robotic dream team. brains overbroad the world is a dangerous place so robots are frequently used to scout out areas and perform tasks to hazardous for humans in addition to the classic humanoid design is often
3:30 pm
sent to nature for inspiration this is resulted in myriad weird and wonderful creations but even if we have to go in harm's way a robots will put us back together again if things go wrong however building a machine capable of such precision in highly demanding environments still requires a human touch. set up in st petersburg twenty three years ago the account employs around a thousand people it's forged a name for itself as a top supplier of high tech inspection and maintenance robots for the nuclear and oil and gas industries the company of ships around twenty thousand pieces of equipment to twenty three countries around the world but the applications of these products on just limited to earth india conses even manufactured components for space ship docking mechanisms and electro mechanical fuel valves for launch vehicles we called so with the company's deputy director to find out more. about the company's mission is to ensure complete control over.
