7:01 pm
fly from our studio center in moscow this is our team with you twenty four hours a day and when the friends thanks for joining me. there is an air of anxiety in geneva where a long anticipated deal on iran's nuclear program could potentially be signed although foreign diplomats on the iranian delegation sound optimistic no further details about just what's happening have emerged polly boyko has the details for us from geneva. talks between the p five plus one foreign minister 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 we did hit from the rainy and foreign minister 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
7:02 pm
contain public recognition of iran's right to me i'm in richmond 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 downwards 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 been the iraqi 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 cools is what it calls all civilian purposes according to any agreement that has come up with today they would have to agree to stop enriching uranium to
7:03 pm
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 agent 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 natural resources or oil and gas and things like that and of course we should not forget that they did to talk about i think getting off a decade ago about beginning to trade some of those resources in europe. and that's where the u.s. battle states began to get very heavy diplomatically against iran and threatened war so this sort of the whole issue around nuclear weapons program real or unreal seems to be a source smokescreen to try and caroll iran into trade continuing to trade its all
7:04 pm
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 apply great pressure to influence the positions of france and the u.s. 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 is 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 american relationship to terri eight so what we've seen is an increase in the
7:05 pm
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 many creditors having prevented a deal from going through before at the same time there are reports circulating in there has been for quite a few days now that these radios are working with the some of these 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 if space there is talk of some kind of tactical support that they will give to israeli warplanes if indeed netanyahu follows through with his threats of a military strike once this deal is in fact signed off. i spoke to john limbert the
7:06 pm
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 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 what.
7:07 pm
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 of the nuclear talks in geneva of course in the coming hours on air as well as online are to dot com also on our website we're asking you about the prospects of an agreement go there to have your say on the issue. thousands of people have spilled on to city streets across germany to mark the death of an anti-fascist activist murdered in one thousand nine hundred the government's on a crusade against the views promoted by far right groups artist peter all over was at the event in berlin for us. members of the anti fascist group anti far as well

7:10 pm
. german chancellor angela merkel wants to have a word with president putin over ukraine after it pulled out of a free trade deal with the e.u. brussels and moscow accused each other of blackmailing kiev into accepting offers over integration deals artie's alexy 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 association deal with the e.u. meanwhile several hundred people are still protesting at teves independence square some of these comments and emotions i compiled in my report back to square one for ukraine's politics or kiev central square to be precise in two thousand and four
7:11 pm
the orange revolution started here at independence square the event which dramatically changed political life in ukraine and set it on a year integration course nine years later the square is filled with people again only this time they're here because their president took a turn around well these protesters have been furious with the decision we have for an independent ukraine we have to fight for tomorrow other people believe ukraine may have in fact dodged a bullet you 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 gary and right now the e.u. is in a kind of a death spiral the e.u. has little right now to offer training hours after the korean government's decision
7:12 pm
reports emerged that unocal beach told his lithuanian counterpart in a phone call that russia economically blackmailed 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 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
7:13 pm
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 alexi russia reporting from key of ukraine. r.t. has been gathering expert analysis on how k.s. could benefit from signing potential trade pacts 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 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 so there were
7:14 pm
a unexpected totally unexpected move is very strange because of course you can quest to balance and see whether it's simply a rally. for example the european union to dictate to greece. or to perth to grow it to other countries and impose a step and transitions and millions of people losing their jobs. i think that it became clear to the ukrainian president of each that if you signed their deal he is not going to get anything financially in the e.u. so 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. europeans are engaged in a growing battle for their land. that's is the controversial practice of fracking

7:18 pm
the polish government has announced a significant acceleration in child gas exploration in the next few months it comes in spite of multiple warnings from environmentalists and mass protests both in the country and internationally the majority of european countries have limited the controversial technique or else completely banned it such as france however fracking is flora xing on the other side of the atlantic guyana to check on has more. when romania granted the u.s. oil 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 your soil. in
7:19 pm
holland farmers stood up against chevron to fight fracking to no avail fracking pumps a high pressure cocktail of water sand and chemicals in the underground to release shale gas from bedrock environmentalist 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 be 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
7:20 pm
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 sunk by the president this is. pathetic sad silly 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
7:21 pm
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 a little less say about their land and check on our team. dr tony juniper one of britain's leading environmentalist tells us there's 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
7:22 pm
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 about 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 misfire. and oil pipeline blast in china leaves dozens dead we have shots documenting the aftermath demonstrate the power of the explosion on the surrounding area at the invision section of our website. plus. safe tweeting find out more about the security measures taken by twitter to safeguard users from the growing threats from government snooping that and more on our to dot com. on sunday the president of afghanistan will tell a national meeting of elders to delay signing
7:23 pm
a security deal with the united states until next year washington has put pressure on how many cards i 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 after the april twenty four thousand presidential elections and said war activist brian becker says karzai has to carry 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

up next we check out what keeps moscow's famous metro system on track and on time in technology update. 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 what a different key problem in the so-called first world debt the rolling jubilee
7:27 pm
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 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 just blogging about it and although fifteen million dollars is a tiny tiny drop in the debt bucket it may have really saved the financial lives of many americans but that's just my opinion.
