6:30 am
this syrian conflict. is an example of that. but so. many terrorists from all over the world including even european countries the us the russian federation's a lot of militants fight in syria to set up a caliphate here and not just in syria in this entire region so this is. attempts to in impose democracy from outside this destabilize is the situation and produces new threats nur risks. so. and on the contrary stability any chances and democratic process season makes them more effective so i have no doubt that the conference which will probably take place on january twenty second i really hope that nobody will
6:31 am
contest it. and i hope that the opposition will not make any unreasonable demands to disrupt this conference i think when this conference happens fighting terrorism it should be the top priority this is the biggest threat for syria and other countries in the region at the moment. of course there will be other issues on the agenda is will including humanitarian issues is. the coordination of the political approach elections. the best way to arrange the elections the necessary institutions for the transition period but all of this should be based on the consensus between the government and the opposition as reflected the unique community kids up today after the first geneva conference.
6:32 am
and i really hope in this respect that our western partners and our partners in the region. who have. influence on the opposition the most will do all the can to make sure that the opposition it's that will be well represented at this conference. and that they come to this conference without any conditions without any preliminary conditions. which is very central idea of this russia u.s. initiative is to bring the two parties together without any preliminary conditions to work out a way to implement. the principles of the genuine communique dusted and june the thirtieth of two thousand and twelve but at this point i still have. some doubts i don't know. which position will the national collison adopt
6:33 am
we see some indications that they don't have full unity in their ranks the coalition continues to claim that the only outcome of this conference. if not that preliminary condition should be a regime change and we never had a need agreement on that and we are all so. this coalition does not control all the parties involved in fighting the regime on the ground in the other reason for us to mori is that. those fighters include an increasing number of jihadi ists extremists who want to set up. a caliphate and impose sharia laws and they are already terrorizing minorities they set up what they call up an islamic
6:34 am
front and how western similar western partners. are. even. still. play establishing contacts with them even though they. very well know that this is very close to. similar organizations. and we're worried because of that and regularly we see. incidence happening in syria where christians suffer serious to have soumillon no christians currently it so probably less than a million years now we don't have reliable statistics but i think at least a million christians have fled the country there are refugees there are some well established facts like. there was
6:35 am
a convent where terrorists. seized some nuns near. this is the only place in the world where the population speaks the language of jesus christ aramaic. and. from our contacts with christian communities in the country we know that they are very very worried because we still have been living in this area for a two thousand years. and. go solution. we need. to work in agreement about the future syria we need to fight terrorism and as far as the political process is concerned it is necessary for the government and the opposition to start by. drawing
6:36 am
up their vision regarding the future of syria that this should be a solver an independent country. with a territorial integrity respected by all sides and where their rights of all afghani career leaches and political groups are respected where everybody can feel secure which is the use of it just as we can participate in politics in the political system so this is the number one goal. but as far as persons for the most are concerned who will organize the elections and so on and so forth all those details are secondary the biggest threat comes today from those that a good school wants to. defeat us government forces on the battlefield and set up at the top two different nation yes and of course we are also worried about the humanitarian situation and we probably do more than anybody else we're talking with
6:37 am
different humanitarian agencies of the united nations to help people in syria and we have done. something but you have to realize that there is a real war going on there. and still we provide humanitarian aid both directly and by sending humanitarian cargo into syria medications food and so on and we'll soon make donations to the various humanitarian funds of the united nations and the red cross says but just like it happened in the situation with. well weapons some people try to take advantage of this humanitarian disaster just like it happened with the chemical weapons. but they accuse the government of everything negative that happens there including the
6:38 am
humanitarian crisis there was a resolution adopted in the un general assembly that doesn't reflect the actual situation on the ground it started early ideology but it was not supported by as many countries as last year they also say they may send this humanitarian result into the u.n. security council where they will demand that the government should take unilateral steps then threaten it with chapter seven of the unit charter this initiative has no future. we're morry by the activities of such spoilers with the geneva two conference in the offing. and the opposition makes demands about regime change or. declaring in advance that the regime will be changed after this conference is taking care of the humanitarian situation first
6:39 am
and the opposition claims it will not take part in the geneva conference on less the humanitarian crisis is resolved but actually the biggest reason for this community here in this crisis is the those terrorist groups groups that many countries have. officially recognized as terrorists so goes not to fight the symptoms so our goal is to fight the root cause of the crisis and the root cause of the crisis. is as follows. if the terrorist threat in series incredible and the government should. meet with the opposition. yes and work out the basic parameters of their future state like i mentioned and also we should remember that at the g eight summit in lokeren. all the leaders so the g eight countries urged both the
6:40 am
government and the opposition to join their forces in fighting terrorism to overcome terrorism in syria and. drive them out of syria i think this is part of the number one priority but once the situation stabilizes and the rights of minorities sars secured when the relief and ethnic situation is serious normalized then democratization process will take place. some of the sixteen percent of imports came from illegal fishing. the european union is ironically taking fish from some of the poorest nations on earth so this is a very serious and very urgent problem that needs immediate international action. territorial waters they fish they load the fish into the ships and leave for.
6:41 am
illegal fishing just taking the bread out of our mouths. react to situations i have read the reports to. the no i will leave that to the state department to comment on your latter point to save. a car is on a dog. no god. no more weasel words. when you made a direct question are you prepared for a change when you call upon you should be ready for a. pretty speeches. down the freedom to question.
6:42 am
crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want. but up a little bit on a super very often rushes for trade as a country which is your prone to hasty decisions although the style the russian diplomacy is the opposite of what is how strong the spirit saw it so
6:43 am
of the cold war you are in international politics. i completely agree with the us should you stay in that over some people try to paint our country on the international arena as a country that's again. make take some actions based on emotions a little for the words in a hurry. this is completely groundless this may be part of what i mentioned earlier as the methods used in informational warfare what we did with the syria you know iran is the opposite of that we always put it with the problematical we are always flexible we never get ourselves in a corner like some other countries did a couple of years ago actually more than that to usual when they said that with acid. which is no more a legitimate especially as the president of course this was a statement that some world leaders made how can you say that president asif
6:44 am
doesn't represent anybody if. he still supported by a large portion of the population he was not the majority of the syrian people. i don't mean. the door him but. there are as many groups in syria who didn't stand on him and i don't just mean minorities also sunni muslims they. develop their businesses. during their rule of the yes of the family and the city they think that there is this change of regime without the political settlement or their businesses will be taken away from them so he does represent a substantial part of the syrian people to see so statements like this that he's no longer a legitimate president and there's no point in talking to him any more this is just an example of making preposterous statements and can give you another example
6:45 am
again with syria when we talk about issues today. currently in the western countries just see this problem differently they're becoming more realistic in their approach to the syrian settlement. and. regardless of what they are official spokesman say. the threat of terrorism in syria. the threat of coming to power in syria and setting up a caliphate. knew she was violating their rights and maybe even exterminating minority is in syria and this is the number one problem. in the. and the realisation of the look sad that the regime change is not the way to solve this problem maybe actually. these will
6:46 am
salute. the terrorists coming to power if our western partners become increasingly clear about is that it was good for us and is do we think that they will do what they need to do to make sure that the geneva two conference is a success as we did everything. what we had to do the government is ready to participate the opposition has not said the same yet but we believe this deal realisation of the situation in syria will force our western partners to do their part of the job the way we agreed so as far as russia's foreign policy in general is concerned in other areas it's the concept of the russian's foreign policy says that we have some with basic principles our foreign policies operate in a net acres we developed equal mutually beneficial partnership with all countries
6:47 am
and vs. without confrontation we defend our legitimate national interests. when a president would not address the federalist simply which a couple of weeks ago. he made it very clear. we are gone soon he said if we don't want to assume the. super. on the international arena we want to be a leader want to be a leader in defending international law and defending good principles it's recorded in the un charter. and in order to be successful in international affairs you see you don't need to carry with me let's talk about our neighbors. to russia and the rhetoric in. and in some other. countries.
6:48 am
it's becoming systemic. and actually it's quite sad that we see situations like that. and it has been. many years actually since the end of getting hold the war the what we mean and tag and insists that the caller who. supported this cold atmosphere throughout the globe are no longer in existence i mean and the soviet union and the warsaw pact that when they go still there of course. for. being guided by the phobias of this long gun. it's not good. is short sighted. we. would like to live in peace with
6:49 am
all our neighbors just leaves us the votes including bolts to countries we have been parts of the same state but we developed our east history there in different. industries we just still. helpful and useful to those republics of course the infrastructure is so well. with . all that relief when the end is the one year when the joint neato. from the us is up with our western partners this was back then. that was what the soviet union was integrating. told us you shouldn't. because they have their fears about the chances of we will.
6:50 am
accept them as nato members and they will feel secure after that not only did not happen here so we develop economic. ties we have cultural context with all those countries we would like to expand them. when they have their meetings in the nato we hear a russian sentiment regularly just to give you an example. we have this. russian nato council and we discuss many different issues here including missile defense which is. negative factor in our relations with the u.s. . you know. we would like the russian nato council to build up. our lesions would need zero. relations with europe. i mean you cannot. educational
6:51 am
scientific all sorts of contacts is immense it's steadily increasing. but the situation. with. contacts in the military. area. is much much lower so we always promote this kind of information exchange mutual. regarding different military revamps that. mirror. each other's borders i recently went to poland in my come to part there the polish foreign minister told me that they were. happy with the level of vogue been we had when we conducted our west twenty three. much at the same time. they had there in the military adjusts.
6:52 am
and nato military exercises in poland just do it. and while our. boys. could do to quite terrorists from the air. exercise. school the goal was based on the chapter five of the washington treaty. self defense as they were preparing for this drill we asked our native partners what do you mean by this defense oh my you want to defend against and this is taking place right next to our border in poland. and there was no clear answer to your question and eventually took place and. it was a certain. officials in poland in the baltic states sad
6:53 am
was publicly that this drill was preparing to defend their countries from the threat from the east and the final question was one of these very astutely geneva two conference. the west is still reluctant. and the conference take place without. some of this question has not been fully a result of the list of countries that is being. added to the school rianne is in parentheses this point. we will live in all countries who influence the situation. talking about so regional countries all syria's neighbors and other leading countries in the region especially iran and saudi arabia countries. currently being associated with
6:54 am
a very dangerous subjects it's. associated with a little school with the possibility of splits in the divisions which when the moslems with dean gives them i'm talking about sunni and shia muslims this is unacceptable we should have heard that it was actually within a sunni islam. there is currently some friction this is a very dentures so saudi arabia has a country. that has so. polices the sort of two places for moslems the country that wants to see as opposed to iran's it's a country that wants to be a leader he needs shiite. muslim world and that also makes no secret of the fact that it would like. a regime to stay there
6:55 am
and achieve political settlement of course those two countries should participate in this conference because any case they will have influence on the situation there so it would be much better for them to participate in with general conversation it's much better to make them part of the general format it's much better for them to be able to listen to the opinions of all the parties taking part in the conference bestially. the government and the opposition but also other party is supporting. the conflict inside and with the let's get is not met a clear. to. pretend that they have no influence this is. an idea. ideological approach that is harmful some say that you. sign as you communicate.
6:56 am
and you would choose based on that community but actually believe countries that the west does not mind participating in this list includes certain countries that also do not subscribe. to communicate and actually the we work against that word to disrupt the geneva two conference everybody knows about that so it's obvious to us that iran should participate actually i would say everybody realizes that it is necessary for participate the europeans this arab support this was the secretary general of the un and he's special envoy brahimi is supportive of the united states is still has a president but we will talk to them after all when the united states had to take care of problem you know iraq again you stand in previous years washington
6:57 am
had direct contacts with iran and ideological reasons did not stop them from doing so so if this was possible to take care of the us interests back then why do they. bite the ran to the table when we need to do something for syria when afghanistan was controlled by the taliban there was this. six neighbors over again it's ten. plus russia in the u.s. and iran was part of this group been proved. very productive participants in that process. of the thank you very much much for all for find the questions.
6:58 am
summer break a time when all students rejoice and most importantly relax but in russia summer break for male students could change dramatically and involve lots of guns currently male russian citizens have to put a year into the armed forces but the ministry of defense thinks that they can make things easier by having students spend their summer breaks in the military this training would tie in with their future professions such as engineering students being put into military engineering position now the question is does your summer break belong to you or another words of the government have the right to tell you what to do and make you serve in the army even if just for three summers during your college years i think the answer this really depends on your culture in places which haven't been invaded countless times or have a strong individual ism streak any form of conscription sounds barbaric and oppressive but if you come from a country that is less individualistic and has been attacked invaded by pretty much every country that possibly could like russia then having a draft makes more sense i think this program could work and if i was in college i
6:59 am
would be pumped to spend my summer vacation with some heavy artillery but this is definitely not a universal idea for all countries i don't think liberals are libertarians in america would take too kindly to it and rightly so but that's just my opinion. to the. reasons he has put there's already plenty to celebrate this december on this month's show how the future and so lazy sex in stone how to make movies with an instant messenger and their revenue shoot exoskeleton makes life worth it really take. a year. choose your language kelly mcevers though in a financial planner they sell some of the. treatments that the consensus get to.
7:00 am
