5:01 pm
life from our studio center in moscow this is our two with you twenty four hours a day i'm going to france thank you for joining me. there's an air of anxiety in geneva where along it is a pretty deal on iran's nuclear program could potentially be signed although foreign diplomats in the iranian delegation sound optimistic no further details about just what's happening yet emerged probably boyko has the details for us from geneva talks between the p five plus one foreign minister does have broken up for a short while at the moment presumably for those foreign ministers to go and get a bite to eat before they go back into these very tense negotiations now we know that they will be reconvening in a short while but you did hear from the foreign minister. and he said that the agreement that's being discussed today. of three stages and he said that he can
5:02 pm
reassure them that potential if we meant would contain public recognition of iran's right to. enrichment all 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 in doubt 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 the vital sticking points throughout these negotiations has big. heavy facility in iran which could potentially reckons grade plutonium the crux of this deal is that iran wants to continue enriching uranium for what it cools is what it calls our civilian mrs according to any agreement that has come up with
5:03 pm
today they would have to agree to stop enriching uranium to a purity of five percent in exchange they would get a limited relief from economic sanctions for six months. 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. political analyst and former m i five agent and the mission told us it's important to remember that there's more than just nuclear issues at stake here iran is sitting on top of a huge range of natural resources all and gas and things like that and of course we should not forget that they did about i think getting over a decade ago about beginning to trade some of those resources in europe. and that's where. us battle states could begin to get very heavy diplomatically against iran and threaten war so this sort of the whole issue around nuclear weapons program
5:04 pm
real and real seems to be a source smokescreen to trying karoly run into trade continuing to trade its all in its natural gas in the petro dollar and so sure up the american economy that way. a 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 israelis upright apply great pressure to influence the positions of both france and the united states artie's policy player has more from jerusalem. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu continues to be as critical as ever he has consistently called this a bad deal he has expressed skepticism over the rainy and statement that they are not intending to build a nuclear bomb and he has also say that the lifting of sanctions does nothing more than merely give them breathing space now this growing 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
5:05 pm
american relationship to tary aides 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 these new here and this is of course because of the french criticism against the deal in fact it was the french that maybe credit as having prevented it deal from going through before at the same time there are reports circulating and there 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 report suggests that the saudis will give the israelis is space there is talk of some kind of tactical support that they will give to israeli warplanes if indeed netanyahu
5:06 pm
follows through with his threats of a military strike once this deal is in fact signed off. i spoke to john limbert the former u.s. deputy assistant secretary of state for iran mr limbert was among the diplomats held hostage during the notorious crisis at the u.s. embassy in tehran more than thirty years ago he believes it's israel not iran which has become more hardline. but we've seen i think in the last three or four 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 coming that coming out which oppose any any deal are creating concern and concern in israel
5:07 pm
a lot of people are quite have been criticizing the prime minister look what 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 giving giving up well that's that's not 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 such an agreement simply isn't going to last we'll be following the progress at the nuclear talks in geneva in the coming hours on air as well as online at r.t. dot com also on our web site we're asking you about the prospects of an agreement go there to have your say on the issue. thousands of people have spilled onto the city streets across germany to mark the death of an anti-fascist activist murdered in the early ninety's the government is on
5:08 pm
a crusade against the views promoted by far right groups artists peter oliver was at the event in berlin for us. members of the anti fascist group anti far as well as of the left wing organizations are marching through central 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 a subway station by members of a right wing used to organize a should know those who have come out steve take part in this march say that the fight against fascism and against naziism is as important now as it ever has been we saw in the past. could make can make the second world war and the treatment of the usual people and of the communists of the professors and we work hard to repeat this experience. behind the fascism of this
5:09 pm
always good capitalism reason that we have seen in history that every time we have a crisis in society fascism gets us the threats to society nesa pashley to those who are punished by the crisis which is the poor the working class the youth 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 the building say just behind the demonstration routine it's all going over relatively peacefully a few firecrackers being set off a lot of flares and a lot of of harsh 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 shoot if they can't be any counter
5:10 pm
demonstration staged by the far right at the. question is that we have seen in the past can't take place. german chancellor angela merkel wants to have a word with president putin over ukraine after it pulled out of a free trade deal with brussels and moscow accuse each other of blackmailing kiev into accepting offers over integration deals. he has more 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 after putting 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 great may suffer from eventually joining this is so sation deal with the e.u. meanwhile several hundred people are still protesting in independence square some
5:11 pm
of these comments and emotions i've compiled in my report back to square one for ukraine spall it takes or kiev central square to be precise in two thousand and four the orange revolution started here independence square the event which dramatically changed political life in ukraine and set it on the euro integration course nine years later this square is filled with people again only this time they are here because their president took a turn around well these protesters have been furious with the decision we have to fight for an independent ukraine we have to fight for tomorrow other people believe ukraine may have in fact dodged a bullet. the decision to suspend the preparation of signing the association agreement and zone of free trade with the e.u. 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 variants right now the e.u.
5:12 pm
is in a kind of a death spiral the e.u. has little right now to offer. craning 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 a chance to remove the main obstacle in its way through integration with the e.u. so when i heard some dodges found out yesterday that ukraine has suspended not canceled but suspended negotiations with the e.u.
5:13 pm
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. r.t. has been gathering expert analysis on how t.f. could benefit from signing potential trade pact here is what we heard. the opportunity to be part of an 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
5:14 pm
such as bulgaria and romania the european union itself really has to concentrate on its own internal economic problems to say that this is a so there were 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 pick a leg to greece. or to pay to grow it rather countries and impose a step or two 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. . basically office things which are not 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. the u.s.
5:15 pm
oil lobby well and truly it outdoes itself forcing through bills that would make protesting at any drilling site extremely expensive and federal regulation a thing of the past that and more coming up after the break. i will go to is woman or arbiter is through this. bill press extremist good premade thinks. bill graham makes the straight.
5:16 pm
on your comment a lot of. the time you don't. like to have you with us here on t.v. today i roll researcher. from the greatest highs to extreme lows after heading into space as part of a historic journey to saatchi the olympic torch has now reached the depths of lake by call divers descended under the water with three torches that can burn hotter than two thousand degrees celcius and the olympic symbol reach the bottom of the
5:17 pm
world's deepest like with the flame still burning thank goodness if that wasn't enough there were more surprises in store when it reached the surface r.t. is james brown's there to see what happened. you're watching the climax of this very special torch relay out of lake baikal where the olympic flame is making history and once again it's been lit and passed on the water by a team of three divers and now it's been given to the up to the name of by call who even without his wings is happily flying with the torch and his job is to take it to the shore where it will light up the olympic cauldron a fitting climax to a spectacular show out of one of russia's most beautiful national landmarks. r t is of course following the torch is journey across russia to the host city of saatchi on air and online are t. dot com.
5:18 pm
protesting could soon become a thing of luxury to at any drill site in the united states courtesy of a new law crafted by the oil lobby the bill would force the demonstrators to shell out five thousand dollars for a rally permit and excuse the government from regulating the fracking industry and is guaranteed to con reports a tide of concern is swelling or says drilling method across the atlantic as well. when romania granted the us or a 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 holland farmers stood up against chevron to fight fracking to no avail fracking
5:19 pm
pumps a high pressure cocktail of water sand and chemicals the underground to release shale gas from the 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 discover this to be true with the polish government and poor polish authorities because they are in fact on the side of these big corporations lego 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 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
5:20 pm
they're going to leave but the farmers will be here and this is really what the fight is about u.s. energy giant drills 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 to the senate before being sunk by the president this is. pathetic sad silly 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
5:21 pm
of public health the environment or social protection interfere with their profits and the opponents say it would give transnationals even greater access to their soil and leave the people with a little less say about their land and check on our team. dr tony juniper one of britain's leading environmentalist tells us there will be a serious price to pay in the future makes 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 a better energy source or not in an economic sense it's basically a rigged market the environmental costs are not being paid for by the shale gas companies therefore we get a full solution 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
5:22 pm
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 misfire. there's been an unusual twist in the political career of one israeli mayor as his critics say his political program should have landed him in jail for racism not in the male hot seat read more on the accusations of israel hunting into radicalism. and ambitious plans for three d. printers as medics hope to use the technology for the donor organ market starting with the human heart the full details on r.t. dot com. the president of afghanistan will on sunday tell a national meeting of elders to delay signing a security deal with the u.s. until next year washington has put pressure on made karzai to push through the agreement that would allow american troops to stay on afghan soil beyond twenty fourteen but he's been digging in his heels saying any accord should only be agreed
5:23 pm
to after the april twenty four thousand presidential elections and who are activists brian becker says karzai has to carry it out a tough balancing act the elders assembly is largely handpicked i mean they're not supposed to make their decision until sunday but i think it's very likely that they will approve signing the deal although we don't know that with certainty anything could happen but just think of it if you would what the united states is proposing is that the united states will maintain military bases and soldiers in afghanistan for a quarter of a century twenty twenty four is almost a quarter of a century after the two thousand and one invasion this is a clear instance of a colonial relationship where the united states invades and occupies a country uses various pretexts and then maintains military bases so that ultimately whoever is the government after karzai the us will be the determine or the real power in afghanistan and now for some more global headlines.

up next it's the weekly sputnik shelf for our british technology update for the rest of the world. there is 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 but 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
5:27 pm
their burdens the group claims that the secondary debt market is very cheap and they are 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 an evil system instead of. 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.

a dangerous place so robots are frequently used to scout out its areas and perform tasks to positive speak humans in addition to the classic humanoid design is often since a 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 those bytes 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 same. twenty three years ago the accounts 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's ships around twenty thousand pieces of equipment to twenty three countries around the world but the applications of his products on just limited to earth day a concert even manufactured components for space ship docking mechanisms and
