parliament want to move the country inside europe but the government finds the notion premature saying brussels offer does not include such pacts as membership and privileges most europeans enjoy found as a believe that law. if inside the union would be cheaper seemingly attractive the government warns this comes at the expense of destroying the country's own economy and getting little compensation for that the opposition still insists should break free of the pressure coming from moscow but close economic ties with russia including the free trade zone a shared business landscape and increased exports are pulling the states back together and while e.u. officials say moscow is playing an unfair game analysts patrick young believes brussels is just diverting attention away from its own savings. if the european union's leaders whether individually or collectively started admitting to their shortcomings there'd be no end of problems wouldn't there i mean look at the european union massive run down employment throughout the course of the entire

union we've got things like fifty percent plus of youth unemployment in several mediterranean countries they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco built on sand by the sort of deluded technocrats who believe that they know the best thing for all people and therefore realistically the only thing the european union can try to do is keep billions storming everybody russia who cares because ultimately the european union that started and has rendered wonderful supranational trevor project is ultimately falling apart at the seams because it has become itself a crumbling soviet style empire which in many cases replicates some of the more ridiculous facets of the old soviet union.

earlier this week international headlines were dominated by a historic nuclear deal with the run hammond out in geneva by six world powers to run was promised a modest relief to sanctions in return for scaling back its nuclear program but though the country's managed to set aside their differences to reach the breakthrough agreement they do still differ on what made it possible while that from playboy. it's a deal that's eluded diplomats for a decade. and as the crucial make or break iran letelier talks continued into the night details of how they were going were leading the journalists camped out in geneva so we waited and waited and waited while diplomats from six world powers and iran inched their way closer to an historic breakthrough than after sixteen hours a tweet from the e.u.'s top diplomat a deal had been done the six negotiating powers agreed to recognize iran's right to
6:08 am
peaceful nuclear energy including its right to nuclear enrichment on the condition that its program is placed under strict control by the i.a.e.a. . as we received word of the agreement we got details to iran had agreed to reduce its uranium enrichment from twenty to a maximum of five percent used for u.s. centrifuges while halting construction of a new reactor near the town of iraq. throughout this long list of concessions iran's foreign minister still had a smile on his face and its hand he won for his country a partial easing of sanctions allowing tarantulas gain control of billions of dollars worth of much needed funds in foreign banks we believe that it is the sanctions that have brought us to this negotiation and ultimately today more significant negotiation to follow for
6:09 am
a comprehensive agreement others have stressed that it wasn't the stress of more punitive measures but diplomacy that won the day over the night in the case of these talks the fact that that the iranians have shown time after time that there is no evidence that iran's nuclear program is anything but peaceful is something that has been ignored by the western media and western governments but this despite all that iran's resilience has forced these countries take south. enrichment and again the russians and the chinese have played a very constructive role this due to the good in the super good of the agreement is based on the concept forward by the russian president vladimir putin iran's new president hassan rouhani is also seen as having played a crucial role in making the deal possible he came to power less than three months ago pledging to improve iran's relations with the west and i don't think sanctions played as much of a role as the recognition by the united states and britain and other
6:10 am
countries that we need to engage iran because iran is becoming increasingly influential it is only an interim agreement in six months time well now it sounds iran is set to return to the negotiating table but after ten years failed. to reach it scientists in the middle of the night it's a game changer polyploid a hot seat to meet. in the very first moments after the nuclear deal with iran was reached it was clear there grim and left much trained for interpretation. iranian. enrichment program will continue this first step does not say that iran has a right to enrichment and was fired to i had times correspondent path to ask about ahead believes the u.s. is time in the middle of a delicate balancing act. this being the war has started at three

am in geneva and it's going to be going for another six months kerry had to say that so he could of peace the israel lobby the u.s. congress and the hobby petro dollar law of the us not to mention some neal cons in the west as well still very thoughtful and in iran it's different they are saying we still have our right to enrich uranium and it's correct because that deal keeping in reaching your reading of the size percent for the next six months for the moment we have a breakthrough it's going to last six months there will be all sorts of interest to try to pull bard 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 and despite hands on handshakes and geneva the deal with iran left many outside the
6:12 am
room unhappy in creating president obama's opposition at home and america's closest ally in the middle east then attack our reports now on the skepticism. today that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure and flying in the face of president obama what was cute in geneva. last night in small ways sort of agreement. it's a story in state. it's not new a safer place in an environment where israel as well as many u.s. lawmakers don't think that iran should develop nuclear technology at all the obama administration had to engage in diplomatic acrobatics to both acknowledge iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time we approach these negotiations with a basic understanding of iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy but because of its record of violating its obligations iran must
6:13 am
accept strict limitations on its nuclear program that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation and to mutual agreement. despite the official's attempts to appease the hawks punches are flying security cameras it looks like we've tacitly agreed that they will be enriching for commercial purposes down the road so i think you're going to see on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the final agreement another senator marco rubio called the deal quote a blow to our allies in the region who are already concerned about america's commitment to their security and i think a lot of people both in the middle east and on capitol hill are very concerned that

hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics of last of me. and the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and spent the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their ex used to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand lympics and beijing yet china has really developed in the last twenty years but the deal it picks really teach us anything about this country with
6:29 am
a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think of the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. but i see coast as one of russia's top tourist.
