1:01 pm
a. very good evening from r.t. it's nine pm in moscow this wednesday night my name's kevin and first for you france and britain are planning to put forward a draft resolution to the u.n. security council later wednesday condemning the syria's government crackdown on demonstrations the u.k.'s prime minister announced the move in response to months of violence unrest against president assad's rule well our correspondent report now is across all this in new york for us. can you break down for us what's actually going to be happening there the security council tonight the. chair kevin will what is expected to happen is that there will be closed door consultations and all fifteen members of the security council will look over at this draft resolution that will be presented by france and britain. in this draft resolution there will
1:02 pm
be a condemnation reportedly condemnation against syria the draft also calls for accountability over the ongoing violence the draft also calls for humanitarian aid to the allowed into syria to help any of those people that have been injured in the ongoing unrest and according to what's been reported this draft presented by by two european countries urges other countries not to supply weapons to damascus in the meantime the u.s. and its western allies is also putting together another draft resolution that reportedly calls for serious concern or expresses serious concern over syria's lack of cooperation with inspectors from the international atomic energy agency so this one two punch of course is coming following months of unrest that have been taking place in syria some human rights organizations say that more than one
1:03 pm
thousand people people have been injured but experts however say that what is taking place in syria is a civil conflict that required that does not require and prohibits actually any kind of international involvement. the chances of the resolution of the. russia or china or of the opposition to. there's no chance without russia and china coming on board there's no chance of any resolution being passed and security council russia and china are both veto wielding members and as you mentioned they they have expressed several times that they would not support any kind of resolution or harsh statements against syria this of course following what is taking place with libya russia has expressed the fact that some countries western countries european and the u.s. have extended beyond measures that were put out in the resolution. against libya
1:04 pm
that allowed for a no fly zone. according to the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov he says that more diplomatic measures should be used with respect to syria because the last thing the international community needs is to slide into another conflict. this is when it comes to the proposal to consider syria in a similar way as was applied to the libyan situation in which the security council and international community have already become bogged down we believe that the should be able from solving problems politically and not to create conditions for a new armed conflict we should support a process of national reconciliation on accord and constructive peacekeeping rules for neighboring states don't try to pass more and more as illusions which will in fact mean siding with one of the parties in an internal political conflict. meanwhile the british prime minister david cameron has said that any country that veto is against or does not vote for this resolution that is being proposed against
1:05 pm
syria it will be their crotches so obviously poignant statements trying to put countries in the quarter. to quarter support whether or not that will get support or provoke countries from supporting. remains to be seen and of course we'll stay on top of the story and keep our viewers oppressed of what happened absolutely report not only your thanks so much we got more perspective now to get more thoughts on this resolution and also the syrian situation let's bring the conversation to mimi to talk to a bit more of this he's the director of the institute of islamic political thought is in london tonight. to be a very good evening to phone to be with us so the france and britain are pushing for this u.n. resolution to condemn the syrian government's crackdown on protesters is not exactly early intervention in libya started. well this really poses a real dilemma because i mean verbal condemnation will not help the syrian people
1:06 pm
much while at the same time effective intervention in syria would not be a positive sign because we've seen this happen in libya and the quagmire that libya has turned into. and out without doubt the syrian people need to rid themselves of redeem that has persecuted them for many years but i don't think that foreign intervention is going to help resolve the problem for the syrian people let's talk about this resolution is being put forward it doesn't include is it any sanctions or military action do you think people are opposing this or trying to get a mild resolution passed russia or in china disapprove only to overstep it later as we saw in libya. who well it seems to be designed or formulated. it is merely an expression of concern so that people will not
1:07 pm
blame the major powers in the world that you are not saying something about what's going on in syria but it does not amount to. a practical measure whether we consider it to be positive or negative in order to show actual concern so i really don't know what purpose this serves apart from the from. expressing an apology for not being able to do much well as western leaders are calling for this resolution against syria another interesting news lines come out the un atomic watchdog has also launched an investigation into whether a syrian priscilla's he destroyed back in two thousand and seven by israel was a nuclear site but we all recall that story we just heard about it from a reporter then he will be suspicious of the timing of this. well it's all my really because if i may and i mean what purpose does it serve the meal if we're
1:08 pm
talking about the syrian people themselves and their demands for treatment by the regime for an end to corruption for a more democratic political life i r don't see really what this has got to do with it unless the school of thought this is intended what has a school of thought is maybe to try to put pressure on damascus the i.a.e.a. . here they might there probably might use it as a tool in order to impose sanctions so if they want to impose sanctions the justification for the sanctions will not be the manner in which the syrian regime has been dealing with the uprising or with the slater's but rather the atomic project there the syrians. are alleged to have been involved in so you don't think there's a link between the they said latest pressure about that are not actually what's what's going on with this resolution now. well they seem to be two parallel lines
1:09 pm
but somebody might have intended from behind the scene an alternative approach so if the u.n. security council resolution for some reason doesn't work then we can go along the other route ok if your thoughts are seems to me directly the political islamic political thought on the line from london and i think you've been on a. lot of talks with opposition rebels and the colonel gadhafi is cousin russia's envoy trying to broker a cease fire in libya says both sides wanted no military way out now however fighting continues in the city of misrata nato still dropping bombs on the capital while calling for a post. financial reports from tripoli. precious peace mediator. but again love has indeed visited libya to persuade warring sides to start talking he's not for that purpose both opposition leaders in the libyan rebel stronghold and karzai and his cousin and closest ally in cairo as he has said to
1:10 pm
better understand both sides demands and position and folding these meetings has come to the media to say that both sides and the radicals agree and understand that there is no only way to end this crisis through military actions through the war and this conflict could only be resolved through negotiations mr sides that the rebels. would be ready for the dollars. it is going to to have a clear picture of the positions we. could refuse cousin presents to political elites and. this. current situation in libya cannot be resolved by military means and the. libyans can point a way out of this crisis. in just a few last days we've seen dramatic intensification of nato airstrikes on
1:11 pm
the libyan capital tripoli on tuesday night. of the most intensive strikes since the beginning of operation libyan government spokesperson has come to the journalists saying that at least thirty one people have been killed in sixty strikes and we can expect even further intensification today their defense ministers of meeting in brussels and just ahead of this meeting secretary-general rasmussen has said that he would use this opportunity to appeal to the countries to demand more contribute to the fight against gadhafi and just days ago they started for the first. time using attack helicopters in this mission meanwhile what we are hearing from the other side of the front line from bin ghazi from the libyan rebel waters shows us but the rivals are frustrated with the natives actions and
1:12 pm
