question. the week's top stories from our team mates the launches its heaviest and most publishing is strikes in the libyan capital killing as the rebels complain the alliance is ignoring the real frontline meanwhile the chorus of international condemnation over syria. comes to the boiling grease is the government moves to make deeper cuts in public spending an exchange for another ring in germany footing the bill say they're getting tired of paying. the u.s. guided missile walsh itself into the black sea for naval exercises with ukraine but the move provoked moscow's anger claims it's a problem for the nato controversial field program. next hour interview with nato
secretary general anders fogh rasmussen an interview he gave to us this week he defended the alliances actions in libya and insisted the organization has no plans to act in syria. thank you very much for joining us here on r t it's much appreciated i want to get straight to our first question but u.k. and france want a u.n. security council resolution condemning the syrian government and your opinion are we having for libya two point zero here no i would like to stress that nato has no intention whatsoever to intervene in syria at the same time lots of critics expect that that could be the case if we see a resolution russell saying that the fact that it's even being debated is going to cause more violence in syria. there might be some kind of intervention do you think
not if the u.n. goes had it goes ahead rather and approves that resolution once again let me stress we have no intention to intervene in syria having said that. the international condemnation of the brutal attacks against the civilian population syria the only way forward is to accommodate the legitimate aspirations of the syrian people let's look at the lack of an entry strategy into libya it could be said that you were dragged into this rushing to regime change have you accidently gone to war in libya definitely not on the contrary we considered this very carefully we laid out certain conditions that should be fulfilled before we took action and the decisive factor was that the united nations richard roth correct me if i'm wrong but obviously the u.n.
resolution was laid out for a no fly zone and lots of people would consider what's happening in libya to be much more than a no fly zone actually the u.n. security council resolution goes beyond a no fly zone cording to the u.n. security council resolution we are mandated to. protect the civilian population in libya taking all necessary measures and that's exactly what we're doing right now now all the necessary measures if i might speak of what admiral pollo has legitimate strikes on any command center in libya i just want to clarify for some of our viewers who have seen homes bombed they've seen civilian buildings blown to pieces does daffy in a car on a phone or in a hospital on a phone constitute a command center for your purposes when you say any means. i would like to stress that we are not targeting individuals which we. do to military.
targets. and of course common control centers can be used to plan and organize attacks against civilians show amount of control. military targets that's what i'd like to read a question to you that was written to us by one of our viewers on facebook. who's from paris france wants to know why nato is bombing metropolitan areas in libya and civilians are being killed what do you say to. we do all we can to avoid civilian casualties we are in libya to protect civilians against attacks and this is the reason why our commandos are very very careful in identifying legitimate military targets but the g. eight has to mediate in libya they sent an envoy and as mikhail margelov arrived intensified bombing of libya begad why is that. there's no link between the two
events we appreciate all attempts to find a political solution to the crisis in libya because obviously there is no military solution only we need a political process having said that i still think that a strong military pressure on the ground after the regime will facilitate a fruitful political process mr rangel of yesterday in fact stated and you just mentioning that that that the military conflict doesn't have to be there means that it could be resolved peacefully he's stating that he believes that both the rebels and the regime forces are ready to negotiate that they both think that war is not the way out of this conflict so why are you still bombing libya with this information coming from the russian envoy that both sides are are ready to talk. we are continuing our regime because we still see gadhafi regime attacking each own
population and it's absolutely outrageous and. has mandated an operation to protect civilians and we will continue our operation as long as the regime still attacks on people you met with the russian defense minister sort of called yesterday and he believes that troops on the ground in libya are now a possibility do you think there will be troops under your command in the future. we have no intention to put troops on the ground in libya what if gadhafi doesn't back down well i do believe that the combination of a strong military pressure and a reinforced political pressure will eventually lead to the collapse of the regime it may happen tomorrow it may take some weeks but we will stay committed on until we have fulfilled three very clear military objectives firstly
a complete end to all attacks against civilians secondly withdrawal of gadhafi military forces and paramilitary forces to their barracks and certainly immediate and unhindered humanitarian access to people in need so we will continue our until these objectives are met talk of post-war libya seems premature doesn't it given william hague and him seeing stating that nato as he sees it will be there until after christmas this of course all despite a ninety day deadline when do you think you'll leave the libyan people at peace. well i'm not going to guess about any time frame what i can say is that we are prepared to stay committed as long as it takes to fully implement the u.n. mandate and that is to protect the civilian population against any attack what
about the civilians that are being attacked in syria in them in bahrain. yeah of course that's a legitimate question the difference is that in libya we are operating on the basis of a u.n. mandate and was strong support from contras in the region actually a number of countries in the region contribute actively to our operation for these reasons we are in libya. what do you say to critics who aren't convinced that nato is and goal is to protect civilians and that in fact is a regime change. we have been very open about our military objectives. to complete into attacks against civilians withdrawal of gadhafi forces and humanitarian access these are all military objectives and we will continue until they are met. in parallel there is a political trial. defined by the international community. recently
the g eight group including the russian president called on at afi to leave power. and. these two tracks are separate a military price track and a political track but having said that i think it's hard to imagine a complete end to attacks against civilians in libya as long as gadhafi remains in power i'd like to move on to missile defense in europe if i may defense minister surgical also said yesterday that he has been largely ignored by you in your plans for a.m.d. over europe of course you wouldn't accept that but the facts they certainly at this stage speak for themselves don't they. no russia is definitely not ignored on the contrary we have invited russia to cooperate on missile defense the fact is that nato has decided to develop
a nato based missile defense system because we want to protect our populations against mr low tax from whom but we would all like will cooperate with our secretary standing or we are faced with file tax from who from russia. we are faced with a common threat and this is the reason why we would like to see two independent missile defense systems a russian system and a nato system cooperate for instance by exchanging data the whole system would become much more effective that way to the benefit of the russian population and population in nato countries you do understand that it sounds a little bit of a contradiction there you talk about joint trust about a mutual threat and then about separate systems why want one system between nato and russia be acceptable to protect both sides from any kind of threat. because i
don't think at the end of the day. the russian government and the russian people would accept to be subject to a common commitment. i think. the russian nation as such would insist on having control of its own missile defense system and this is the reason why the most realistic approach would be to have two independent systems but with a common purpose but the common purpose is protect our populations now mr rasmussen has been proposing a joint european defense system. and i think the best way to join efforts would be to relate to independent systems cooperate with the aim to protect the russian people as well as people in nato countries russia constantly claims that nato can't guarantee. that its interests will be protected why can't nato it's not these guarantees. the best guarantee whatsoever would
be to engage in close cooperation because growth cooperation between russia and nato would clearly demonstrate that our missile defense is really a defense and it's not aimed at russia. let's face it. we do not consider russia as threat to nato and nato does not constitute a threat to russia so let's join efforts let us cooperate but russia sees it as they can't go forward on promises why can't you daren't see russia on paper that a missile defense system would not be directed towards them. either but it's very easy to guarantee that because we do not we don't have any intention to attack russia not whatsoever but the best guarantee russia could get would be to engage in
a close cooperation then for instance a step is common a joint center where we could exchange data that would clearly demonstrate that this system is not aimed at russia mr rasmussen the facts might demonstrate otherwise thank you very much for taking the time out to be live with us from brussels it's very much appreciated hope to see you again. while. there are people suffering. oh some take advantage of power that was given to the. secrets of big dirty money. on our team. the mission free accreditation free transport charges free come

the fencing event and. followed up with a great performance both in the pool and in the show jumping arena and that elevated him to fourth overall before the combined running and shooting events where he encountered some difficulty with a newly introduced laser gun finishing in one of us i like it here with the scene is in love everything today except for the shooting i just can't get it right but i won the fencing told him in today and that's great since i'm going to be champion and they finished in eighth place that poor result could be attributed to the recent rule change that so air pistols are replaced with laser guns plus running and shooting events have been combined into one making it look more like a summer biathlon adjusting could sake some time for the champ but the twenty eight center world championship runner up alexandre list soon looks set to dominate in the near future the russian taking second place and the silver in the kremlin cup.
despite the second place i'm very happy with my performance because david svoboda is the real star of the combined event i have to admit that we weren't prepared as well as the odd affluence because our main completion of the european championship is two ahead so let's recap check david swoboda the winner of the first ever kremlin cup russia's alexandre listen in second with third and fourth place is going the way of the hungaroring athletes the london olympics are just a year away and that means nations wanting to qualify will have to work hard right now some will be able to get the coveted licenses for that's what it's called games at the upcoming european championship room on cost for a r.c. moscow. finally there are just under a thousand days to go before the twenty fourteen winter paralympics in sochi so not a loss of like this can hurt is an ambassador for the games and has used the countdown to inspire others with her incredible life story rather than reports.

return to swimming and win the paralympics that's what inspired me and gave me strength i discovered any world new people and new goals to achieve. having got to know alicia. and the engines of whole band which consists of hearing impaired youngsters even those who once might have lost hope might get it back. i believe it's my duty to share my experience and views with anyone who is interested no matter if they have disabilities or not for some of them it could be really encouraging i know it works as they've seen it with my own eyes many times. it's very nice if i may say she's a great example for all of us some people would have given up but once they saw her and you have a story they didn't she helped us change our life so well done only so. despite her achievements made it would still call people like alyssa love the disabled but in
