3:00 pm
tonight days of intense talks crowded to secrecy resulted in a deal ending a decade of diplomatic standoff over iran's nuclear program but divisions remain. enrichment program will continue this first does not say that iran has a right to enrich but mixed messages so what exactly did the sides agree on. this being the war started three eight in geneva it's good to be going for another six months experts warn that the deal vague language could see all sides interpret the details to suit themselves. and other used tear gas scare in kiev ukraine
3:01 pm
government building where more than one hundred thousand people are protesting over the country's wavering on integrating with the e.u. . and also the week's major news doomed flight three sixty s data recorder yields insight into the tragic crash that killed fifty in central russia last week we reconstruct the jets final desperate moments. and the afghan president rejects advice at home and abroad to sign off on a security pact with washington that would allow u.s. troops to stay in afghanistan after twenty fourteen. for the moment you've just joined us my name's kevin owen it's just after midnight now here in moscow we want to international in our top story it's a done deal six world powers have reached an agreement with the round bringing its atomic program under control and yes no reports next on how the landmark document is the result of exhaustive talks. the deal of the decade. there will be
3:02 pm
all sorts of interests will try to bully guard this deal but for the moment we have diplomacy in action something that we haven't seen especially between us and iran for thirty four years so this is the major brick breakthrough at the moment but we have to be the world powers and iran reach an historic agreement ending the deadlock over tehran's nuclear ambitions after a decade of fel threats and sanctions diplomacy has prevailed. in the state of the six negotiating powers agreed to recognize iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy including its right to enrichment under the conditions of this program is placed under strict control by the i.a.e.a. of this you. iran will reduce its uranium enrichment from twenty to a maximum of five percent for the next six months and use no new centrifuges inspectors will monitor on
3:03 pm
a daily basis sanctions will begin to ease but while tehran celebrates what it claims is its newly recognized right by the west to a peaceful nuclear program not everyone is on board iran's dream deal is the rules. and some details seem to be lost in translation this first step does not say that iran has a right to enrich but the current agreement the current plan of action as we call it in into this thing places. has a very clear reference to the fact that iranian. enrichment program will continue so while the deal is sealed the spin has just started kerry had to say that so he could okies the israel lobby the u.s. congress and did the petrodollar law in the u.s. not to mention some legal counsel where still very faulty the old rhetoric is
3:04 pm
expected to continue swirling despite a new arrangement president in place who is taking powerful steps to convince the world that iran never has and never will attempt to arm the country with nuclear weapons israel has between two hundred and four hundred nuclear warheads and if ever you are word posed a threat to israel whether a nuclear attack or if it were to build nuclear bombs which it has not decided it is no match but the deal still brings hope that dialogue is a match for the rhetoric that sanctions will surrender to solutions and diplomacy can break deadlock and he's now a r.t. moscow. with agreements skate much support in iran itself spiritual leader ayatollah khomeini welcomed it as a basis for further progress or separating experts believe that iran will gain more than it will sacrifice. the fact that iran is halting uranium enrichment to twenty
3:05 pm
percent is something that iran actually wants because it's very expensive and the iranians have produced the fuel that it needs for the tatooine reactor that produces medical isotopes for cancer patients so the iranians have already produced enough nuclear fuel through enriching uranium a twenty percent it no longer needs it so halting that is actually an advantage for iran because it does not want excess fuel because it's very costly so the iranians feel that they do not lose very much and they have a lot to gain and again it shows the steadfastness of these from the iranian perspective and. standing for your rights can achieve results for his part russia's president putin hailed so there's agreement for opening the doors to the positive diplomacy of the iranian nuclear program to the cochon of moral moscow's reaction russian president like even to pretend he has called this historic deal on iran's nuclear program that was achieved at talks in geneva
3:06 pm
a win win situation for all parties involved now the president said that this agreement is just a first step towards bringing a solution into this very complicated issue now he also said that it was achieved only thinks to a mutual diplomatic approach from all parties involved now the president said that russia has always been calling for a diplomatic approach in resolving the dispute over iran's nuclear program and it is very important that the grounds that russia had been offering were completely supported and acknowledged by the international community now the president said that this deal will bring a positive vibe to the development of the international situation especially and the middle east region and once again later including said that this is just the beginning and russia will continue to seek the bass solution in this matter. so iran has been allowed to enrich you really were to a level of five percent but what does that actually made me put that very question
3:07 pm
to a former commander of britain's chemical defense regiment to make you know fuel stations you need to enrich you uranium or plutonium and i'll come back to that to you about two percent but generally the point is that it is it is used as the top level that then allows you to conduct utilization which is slow group release of nuclear energy by splitting atoms to provide our huge amounts of. sexuality. in order to produce. fuel two for nuclear weapons you need to enrich to eighty percent and above to create a pretty me at a very high rate very quickly to provide the devastation in fact so basically by limiting it to five percent you know in my opinion. that would prevent you weaponized. it really did you leave it was hailed by u.s.
3:08 pm
president barack obama who at the same time said that the large share of american sanctions will stay in place and as a washington correspondent reports next it's still unclear whether iran sigh of relief and will last for long in return for iran scaling back its nuclear program president obama has pledged what he called a modest little first sanctions but the more crippling sanctions will remain here's what the present said we will refrain from imposing new sanctions and we will allow the iranian government excess to a portion of the revenue that they have been denied to through sanctions. but the broader architecture of sanctions will remain in place and we will continue to enforce them vigorously and if iran does not fully meet its commitments during the six month phase we will turn off the relief and ratchet up the pressure the obama administration now says sanctions is what prompted the negotiations that led to this deal we heard secretary kerry talk about this and the president others argue
3:09 pm
that sanctions have created this hostile environment which throughout all these years made it impossible to reach a deal we know that congress was just about to pass another round of sanctions the president has urged congress not to do that saying it would undermine all chances for diplomacy to work they're already blasting the administration for the deal especially the republican part of congress and their reaction ranges from accusations over giving the way millions and not gaining anything to reproaches for italy needing america's allies u.s. congress has hardly been in favor of any deal with iran and it's very difficult to see how they're going to take meaningful steps to actually make the deal work because this is a test agreement after six months all sides and not just iran have to take more confidence building steps and it's very difficult to see the u.s. congress doing it in the current environment. the u.s.
3:10 pm
plans to stick to the deal though even if lawmakers do come under pressure. the u.s. is not going to give up on this beast you know we've had a basic old war with iran says nine hundred seventy nine and this is a major step forward and we have everybody on board yes the they are not enriching to twenty percent of ad knocking they do with a scare a nuclear weapon here that was probably more of the french who don't want to compete with the market for medical isotopes but there's been a lot of negotiation and a lot of time put in this and they're not going to throw it all away because the israelis are having a fit. for some israelis i drove the deal with it to thaw though the country only just stopped short a deed of making an explicit threat to attack iran. reaffirmed his tough stance the news conference middle east correspondent paul asli war on the reaction there. what we heard from the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in a brief press conference is that iran is taking cosmetic steps that it could reverse easily the israeli prime minister warned that this stick because first it
3:11 pm
could very well be the last it and he asked the question what incentive does he now have to dismantle its nuclear weapons program the israeli prime minister said we cannot and we will not allow a country that cause for the destruction of israel to have nuclear weapons capability that on yahoo also saying that israel is not bound by this agreement and that is a statement we've heard from the cross spectrum always ready political leaders netanyahu in fact said that this was not an historic deal but he called it rather a historic mistake now israeli ministers have been lining up to nam vets to rein in nuclear deal the country's foreign minister avigdor lieberman has said that all options are on the table and that israel would act independently of the deal that is reached with iran essentially jerusalem believes that the deal is marginally better than the first draft but it is still a bad deal according to the israelis and they say it could get worse if the
3:12 pm
controls at all stipulated in the agreement or not rigorously adhered to the deal is based according to the trick that we're hearing coming out of television on self-delusion we've heard that it's going and this isn't of the bad deal that was reached and signed with north korea we've also heard from other ministers that it brings the world closer to a nuclear arms race and that there's no reason for the world to celebrate what the signing of this deal has indicated first and foremost is that israel is further isolated and even more marginalized by an international community that in effect did not listen to the israeli concerns. from israel's. former allies of the world. seriously. the united states can live also with a barking dog kills will continue with his takes but is really so isolated about three that the world has say it's world as i say and i don't
3:13 pm
think that this will create a lot of problems even if it comes from jerusalem if you judge it in a very cold way israel's security today is in a better position than two days ago because this agreement was for the benefit of all parties and above all i think that it's very important to know that iran is back in mongar the community of countries and not isolated isolated iran is always more dangerous than iran part of the west part of the east part of the world . well around the state a lengthy and thorny path towards a story deal it's a journey that began way back in the one nine hundred fifty s. when to run started its nuclear program most suit looks on the news war it was only in ninety six when the u.s. chose the path of sanctions on busting around by claiming its development was for military purposes moving on that's when the talks started with them got bogged down
3:14 pm
again in two thousand and five when iran's then president resumed uranium enrichment you had was quick to respond agreeing on its own sections of year later but they failed to stop iran from playing ahead with its nuclear program in fact in twenty ten it increased uranium enrichment to twenty percent international community sorbet is a clear message that to round sort of tommy bomb which allegedly triggered the assassinations then of four iranian nuclear scientists with israel's mossad suspected of involvement bring it up to date by june this year around a new president something many saw as a game changer into rand's relations with the west. has got more on this has been keeping a close eye on the diplomatic marathon in geneva for you if you missed anything want to check it out speed it's at r.t. dot com. coming up soon here the little ray of sunshine for the crew of the arctic sunrise as a russian court bails all but one of the thirty people arrested during a greenpeace protest on an all platform plus two. special camera that scans my

3:17 pm
of cars on international airport killing all fifty on board when the trouble began with the weather when conditions are much stronger than the acceptable levels for landing this type of plane during what's called final approach that jet was just thirty metres off the ground when the pilot told air traffic control that he needed to perform a go around to make a second attempt to land at the last second so he pitched the plane's nose up to gain some height but at that point lost so much speed was stalled the aircraft in desperation then the pilot went into an emergency descent to try and get the lift and speed again but that put the plane into uncontrollable dive plunging it into the ground at four hundred fifty kilometers an hour you went to the see the tragedy . the final traumatic moments of a flight that had almost completed its journey forty four passengers six crew members everyone on board gone doc was dead although he was such a good boy healthy and handsome he had a good family his son is only three years old he made many plans for the future

3:19 pm
a few clues right now the flight recorders have been taken to moscow since they were badly damaged but could reveal what was said in the final few minutes in the cockpit and whether the plane was functioning normally twenty four hours after sunday's plane crash flights have resumed an international airport but it's not business as usual scores of people have been coming in bringing flowers to show their respects to the victims while instead of new evidence giving answers the latest footage of the crash is only raising further questions you've got this kind of artsy republic after their start become based on a ray of aviation experts engineers and flight controllers over the mistakes that appear to have been made on that fateful flight. their thoughts more analysis on our website. also aligned to the great spy spring clean ongoing surveillance scandals have spurred u.s. officials now to demand a complete review of the five billion americans with secret security clearance. reporting as well the remainder of the roof of the supermarkets collapsed narrowly

missing rescuers searching through the rubble for survivors to go to. more details of the country's deadliest disaster. clashes are broken ukraine's capital police fired tear gas on a crowd of pro e.u. protesters outside the government building in kiev the authorities say they are responding to aggression from protesters who filled the smoke at forces over one hundred thousand people around ukraine's last minute decision to abandon integration deal with the e.u. move split the crowds in kiev and also the international community. ukraine is divided again the decision by the government to suspend the free trade agreement with the european union polarized the country these people participating in the largest protest rally i've seen in years in kiev say that they completely disagree with this decision they say the president must be impeached at the different rally just a few hundred meters obvious supporters of the president say that this decision was
3:21 pm
a bridge magic one and was the correct one the notion which is shared by many political analysts as well because looking at the possible disadvantages economic disadvantage is that ukraine could have suffered from joining the free trade agreement it's easy to see why first of all there was an isolation of the korean machinery factories could of course more than one hundred billion dollars altogether the actually which is great cannot afford at the moment so the fact is a lot more denies they can get closed and the tens of thousands may find themselves in the streets without work and could create a social unrest another factor which was also crucial here is that in order to be in line with the european standards ukrainian government had to increase prices for heating oil existing gas for the ordinary population certainly this is something you in ukraine would have liked so. looking at all this and other possible economic disadvantages ukraine begun to decided not to sign this deal it was looking for some sort of compensation from the european union but the european union did not offer any kind of compensations for for the football potential economic damages and losses essentially this is what caused the signing not to happen next week another
3:22 pm
interesting twist in a story happening during the week is that the european union in fact pointed the finger at russia accusing russia of blackmailing ukraine to sign out of this free trade deal the russian president hit back saying that in fact it was the european union who blackmailed ukraine it would have been blackmailing ukraine all throughout the negotiation process let's have a listen to the russian president when i heard that ukraine has suspended not canceled but suspended negotiations with the e.u. he 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. we've been speaking to experts about how kiev could benefit from signing potential trade pacts here's what it. opening the ukrainian borders to the e.u. would be suicide because their export capacity is simply not up to european standards where is the europeans import would flood in and wiped out what remains
3:23 pm
of the ukrainian industry all the countries that have signed up to a new deal say economies have suffered badly e.u. is a sinking ship it's a titanic of twenty thirteen and no one in their right state of mind want to join a sinking ship or buy a ticket to join a sinking ship so the ukraine's future must lie i think with russia with belarus and kazakhstan in a customs union e.u. has conceived this is agreement like all the other agreements that it tries to sign with the whole reason your band states as a geo political project in the midst of all these accusations against russia it's actually the e.u. which sees its ease with expansion as it should let it all and indeed an ideological project i don't think ukraine has lost not particularly because there was no opportunity for ukraine in the e.u. deal to begin with it would have severely damaged their relationships with russia and of the e.u.
3:24 pm
has little hurt offer of that so i don't think ukraine has lost anything. the afghan president suggested advice from the country's influential council of elders known as the jirga that he signed an important security pact with the u.s. soon as possible because i told the three thousand strong meeting he would not ratify the agreement with america till peace returned to afghanistan but washington said any accord must be reached as soon as possible but if the deal is sealed up to fifteen thousand u.s. soldiers will stay beyond the twenty fourteen withdrawal of nato forces they'd support afghan forces but would still be able to carry out military operations against al qaeda and its affiliates it includes keeping to the right to raid homes that's an issue that's enraged the afghan people there's another contentious point as well the deal would give american forces immunity placing them soley under u.s. military jurisdiction political analyst and former afghan lawmaker daoud sultanzoy says that if u.s. troops do remain it'll only be to protect the government's interests if there are
3:25 pm
ten thousand or twelve thousand troops in this country this would mean that they will only concentrate on their own special forces activities against al qaeda and i give certain tribal area. operations and they will bash questions of the other side and kill. their enemies they will not worry about the security of afghanistan and they will not worry about our internal problems they will just pay attention to what their goal is and that's it in my view americans are tired of this mission they're tired of all kinds of fatigues that was bring in that sense i don't think they have a big appetite in a larger operation in afghanistan it's not just afghanistan having second thoughts over the u.s. help in the war on terror either in yemen civilians or pay with their lives deadly american drone strikes are to troubles to me with ties to villages whose community has been ripped apart. this
