position now will not make any unreasonable demands to disrupt this conference i think when this conference happens fighting terrorism 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 is. the best way to arrange the elections 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. 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. 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 community kid june the thirtieth two thousand and twelve but at this point i still have. some doubts i don't know. which position will the national collison adopt 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 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 another reason for us to mori is that. those fighters include an increasing number of jihadi as extremists who want to set up. a caliphate and impose sharia laws and they are already terrorizing minorities they set up what they call an islamic front as you know western similar western partners who are. even.
play establishing contacts with them even though they are. very well know that this is very close to all news for in similar organizations. and we're worried because of that. regularly we see. incidence happening in syria where christians suffer serious to have soumillon of christians currently it at this probably less than a million years and 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 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. of this research and how been living in this area for two thousand years. and. the government would solution. we need. to work out an 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. by. drawing up their vision regarding the future of syria that this should be is so for
an independent country. you know with the territorial integrity respected by all sides and where their rights of all after the career leads is political groups are respected where everybody can feel secure which is the use of it shows this but you can participate in politics in the political system so this is the number one goal . but as far as persons with 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 but it's cool 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 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 through 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 chemical. 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 humanitarian crisis there was a resolution adopted in the un general assembly that doesn't reflect the actual
situation on the ground start only ideology but it was not supported by as many countries as less here 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 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 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. and work out the basic parameters of their future state like i mentioned and also we should remember that at the g eight summit. when you told the leaders so if the g eight countries urged both the 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 series normalized then democratization process will take place. or it was a. very take i. think. that that would take their place so that colin. powell.
or. of. such was the country for the jena lympics was this place like la is is so special as the russian resort prepares to welcome the world power the games shaping the city's present and future a lot more sochi will bring it this is a momentary pause you from a very cold and snowy windy mountainous tough yet beyond the olympics but the. starting germ of the first on our team. told me my language as
well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports and like the pollution and no i will leave them to the state department to comment on your latter point i come on to say it's secure yet a car is on the docket delgado. they do no more weasel words when you vade a direct question be prepared for a change when you throw a punch be ready for a battle freedom of speech and little down to freedom to cost. well. technology innovation all the developments from around russia. the future covered. by super very often russia's for trade as a country which is your prone to hasty decisions although this style the russian
diplomacy is the opposite of what is how strong the spirit. of the cold war you are in international politics. i completely agree with you. some people try to paint our country on the international arena as country this weekend. take some actions based on emotions 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 syria you know iran is the opposite of that we always. act programmatically we are always flexible we never get ourselves in a corner like some other countries did a couple of years ago more than. usual when they said that acid. which is
no more a legitimate president of course this was a statement that some world leaders made how can you say that president as it doesn't represent anybody if. he still supported by a large portion of the population he was not the majority of the syrian people was and 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. developed their businesses. during their rule of the s. and the family and the city 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 so statements 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 great posterous statements and can give you another example again with syria so when we talk about issues today. currently in the western countries 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. violating their rights and maybe even exterminating minority is in syria and this is the number one problem.
and the realisation of the sadeq that the regime change is not the way to solve this problem maybe actually. these will. terrorists coming to power it's. become increasingly clear above that it. 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 in 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 and you know other kerry is the concept of the russians foreign policy says that we have some with basic principles our foreign policy is operating in an
attic we developed equal mutually beneficial partnership with all countries and vs. without the confrontation we defend our legitimate national interests. when a president would not address the federalist sambil e which a couple of weeks ago. he made it very clear look what we are golden says you know he said if we don't want to assume the. super. on the international arena we want to be a leader we want to be a leader in defending international law and defending the principles that were recorded in the un charter. and in order to be successful in international
affairs to see if you don't need to carry. let's talk about our neighbors and i don't see a russian rhetoric in. some other. countries. are producing that 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 being sold the war in europe. what we mean and. what 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 all our neighbors. including bolts to countries we have been parts of the same state but obviously we developed our east history there in different. industries we just feel. helpful and useful to those republics of course infrastructure is so well. with. all that relief when the end is the one year when the joint need to. nurses up with our western partners this was back then. that was what the soviet union was is integrating. told us you shouldn't.
because they have their fears about the chances of we will. accept them as nato members and they will feel secure after that not only did not happen yes we develop economic. ties we have cultural context with all those countries we would like to expand them. when they have their meetings. here and to a russian sentiment regularly just to give you an example so that 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've talked a lot about this we would like the russian nato council to build up.
our lesions would need zero. our relations with europe. i mean economic. cultural educational scientific all sorts of gone is immense it's steadily increasing. but the situation. with. conflicts in the military. area. is much much lower so we always promote this kind of information exchange mutual. regarding different military events that half the mirror. each other's borders i recently went to poland in my part there the polish foreign minister told me that they were so you're welcome. happy with the level of vogue been we had when we conducted our west twenty three exercise much at the same time.
they had there in the military justice. and nato military exercises in poland just it was. and while our. boys. could do to quite terrorists from the air a motor exercise that. was based on the chance of survival of the washington treaty. self defense as they were preparing for this drill we asked our nato partners what do you mean by this defense oh my you 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.
was able certain. also in poland in the baltic states sad little publicly that this drill was preparing to defend their countries from their threat from the east and the final question as one of these various of the geneva two conference has. the west is still reluctant succès is it or can 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 ran is in parentheses at this point. we live in all countries who influence the situation should convert. talking about regional countries all syria's neighbors and others and leading countries in the region especially iran
and saudi arabia countries. currently being associated with it there are dangers subjects' it's. associated with a little school with the possibility of splits and divisions which when the moslems with dean who sees them 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 as a country. that has so. police is the sort of two places holy for muslims to think a country that wants to see as posed iran's as a country that wants to be a leader. part of the old regime muslim world and that also makes no
secret of the fact that it would like. a regime because you just stay there 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 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 that. the government and the opposition but also other party is supporting it's. the conflict you know side with the let's get is not met a girl. to. pretend that they have no influence this
is. an idea. ideological approach that is harmful some say that you will see iran has knowledge assigned to communicate. 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 the genie will want to communicate and actually be sacked if we work against it were 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 iran to participate in the european support this arab support it was the secretary general of the un and he is special envoy lakhdar brahimi is supportive of the united states itself as
a president but we will talk to them who after all when the united states had to take care of problem you know rock again you stand in previous years washington 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 again they. ran to the table when we need to do something for syria when afghanistan was controlled by the taliban there was this explosion. of six neighbors over again it's ten. plus schools rushin the u.s. and iran was part of this group proved. very productive participants in that process. that's the thank you very much that i feel sick you still have room for find did so and so on sort of questions.
why is the price of gold so high. demand global demand do you think gold is money. the value of the only place we have to live of the water that we need to survive is not compared to cool i mean gold we're not going to eat gold we're not going to bait with gold. we're not going to drink what clearly what amal is and is in a desperate economic situation absolutely right what we're wrong to do is say therefore any kind of economic development from the outside is going to be a benefit their only purpose is to extract as much money as possible to feed into the global financial system. with we are part of the geo political economic system that's extremely exploited to.
the first was a question with the mining should even be carried out altogether can it be done in a way which doesn't destroy people's lives resources environment and so on well you know those are pretty serious questions mining is not a what a moment problem it's happening in asia in africa and south america in central america in mexico and it's even happening in canada and the united states. told her my language as well but i will only react to situations as i have read the reports so unlike the players i know i will leave them to the state department to comment on your latter point of the month police agency if mr k.l.a. car is on the docket. there they go no more weasel words
when you need a direct question be prepared for a change when you throw a punch be ready for a battle for the speech in philadelphia down the street into costs. these locals have been not sour here braving the elements in order to stand on a u.s. oil giant chevron. this comes after a massive hunger strike that returned the world's attention to the place that summed up jobs the gulag of our times. is an undeclared global battlefield in which yemen is just one of the front lines. is that a. friend
