their own st petersburg was the opening day of the international economic forum gets underway we'll bring you more on the four and a full business wasn't there around twenty minutes. very good morning not am here in moscow our marina joshing you're watching r t welcome to the program good neighbor it's valuable partners to have the world's biggest and fastest emerging economies are meeting in moscow russia and china share a wide range of common interest with moscow becoming increasingly important supplier of a energy fueling growth across its eastern border. is following developments for us here in moscow and tell us more because we know we know that russian chinese relations seem to be strong enough but what is the room for improvement.
there most definitely is maria's are supporting two representatives of both the russian side and the chinese delegation headed by the chinese leader who's in tow was of course in moscow for talks with the russian president we know that both sides say there's still a lot of room for improvement within their bilateral relationship of course russia and china are each other's biggest neighbors and both sides certainly have a lot to gain from a beneficial relationship with their neighbor rochelle force is one of the world's largest jobs for sources of natural resources such as oil and gas and we do know that there are ongoing talks between gas problem and the chinese national gas company for gas supplies and also a gas pipeline that will be starting in west siberia and heading all the way to china we know that according to the gas pumps you know like c bel-air the agreement for gas supplies to china was supposed to be signed sometime in two thousand and
eleven and we know that today during. the chinese leaders visit a gas called the fish oils will be present and of course those discussions will be taking place we also know that china of course is a very lucrative market for russia not only for its natural resources but for various other things and right now all of the trade turnover the bilateral trade turnover with china is one of the biggest that russia currently has so a very strong partnership that has the potential to grow even stronger and that is definitely something that both woods intel and timothy mcveigh a difference will be looking to achieve during this meeting. called the two leaders also met yesterday at the summit of central asian states where the question of libya and syria was raised so is there an understanding on this issue there. most people do seem to think that the questions of both syria and libya will definitely be raised. during the chinese leaders time here in moscow we know that
in the meeting up as c.e.o. countries where the two leaders met in. previously a disagreement of some sort was reached and both sides do seem to share the position that a military presence or a military intervention is definitely not the correct solution and will not bring peace to libya and the diplomatic ways to resolve the conflict should be sought after and prefer it should be preferred over any kind of military presence in that area of course we do know that both sides do seem to agree on that position in regards to only with libya but also with syria that both sides are gates any sort of potential intervention or even potential u.n. sanctions and that is something that is most likely going to be reiterated once again that shared position here in moscow. right here in things for much of you for
bringing us the latest on the russian chinese relations there in light of the chinese leaders a visit here to moscow. now the fate of libya's leader and a political way out of the civil war will be at stake during talks in truth with as russia's and we will meet colonel gadhafi loyalists gallops visit to try and broker a cease fire comes as the latest nato airstrikes target an area close to cut off his compound are. reports. the visit to tripoli is part of russia's peace mediator a mission in the protracted libyan conflict moscow has been insisting all the time but a nonviolent negotiation is the only way out of the crisis russia has repeatedly criticized nato for starting a military operation here and has never supported a u.n. security council resolution which authorized intervention russian special presidential envoy mikhail margelov was sent here to try to get everybody around the table that's actually very hard to achieve the rubble supported by nature
allies wants to force gadhafi out while the colonel himself says that he will fight to the death i mean what recently have been several signs indicating that a compromise is possible last week macomer gallup met with the opposition leaders in the libyan rebel stronghold of benghazi and talked to his cousin in cairo and serve both sides have a mutual understanding that a protracted war is not an option and the crisis should be resolved through peaceful means he also cited but he had a feeling that the rebels are almost ready for a dialogue with gadhafi the people in tripoli we have been able to speak to you are welcome in russia's afros they are extremely exhausted after months of war which has taken many many lives and has almost completely destroyed the country's infrastructure due to a shortage of fuel gasoline lines stretch for kilometers and kilometers people have
to spend hours even days lining up to fill up their cars and it's tyree more overnight it continues to strike tripoli and we can hear bombardments mess of book gardens almost every night and that scares them as well well people are getting more and more angry and all they want is to get their normal lives back frustration is high among the rebels as well as they feel as though nature. he's taken control over what's bad is a national uprising it's too early to say whether russia will be able to bring peace and stability to leave it but what's clear among people on the ground is that it's definitely worth trying to prevent arsenal reporting there and still have for you this hour a question of justice as alleged russian government viktor abroad faces a new round of us court battle we put there with reality of the whole case under scrutiny. and find out how nationalities cast aside by explorers surviving in the
freezing waters of the world's coolest continent. the u.s. will now have to readjust its missile defense plan for you were after the czech republic announces dropping out of the project prague said it was frustrated it's now a minor role in the system the country was originally supposed to host a regular base but president obama proposed stationing less important facility there washington claims the scheme aims to protect you work from potential threats from iran or north korea but there has been strong opposition from russia which is concerned it is the target the czech republic has also seen massive protests activists thomas who took part in the rally says the system will only fuel international tension. check people don't want such a thing here in this country we feel that this will actually undermine the security of both the czech republic and europe as a continent and so we think that it's completely contradictory to place such a system here in europe this system without incorporating russia without
talking to also other world superpowers like china like india or the following are the forests that will be the biggest world economies in the in years is really going to make a lot of tensions on the global scale and so it we should be wise and just start thinking about building security mechanisms and structures that will include all the big super powers not just some. mascot has asked for a legal guarantees that a proposed missile defense shield one the aimed at its nuclear capabilities so far the u.s. and nato have refused to provide them russia's envoy to the airline says the project seems more of a stretch to security rather than a reassurance. because of books which you do maybe the security of an individual or state consists of two parts the first is the guarantee given by law by the state the other participant mentioned by a person's actions to provide his or her own security the same applies to what the
more real guarantees are get from our partner the less will do to provide security and vice versa i believe the missile defense project in the way it's presented now is very provocative and unjust but it can be useful and fear only of russia gets to participate in it on equal terms with other states because. that was russia's envoy to nato commenting on the alliances missile defense plans in europe. the greek prime minister is promising to reshuffle his cabinet and seek a vote of confidence in parliament after coalition talks with opposition parties fail george papandreou has been trying to push through more cuts to secure a second e.u. and i.m.f. hand plan stands over twenty five thousand angry people into the streets of athens wednesday while guineans held a general strike protesters clashed with police and fire tear gas at demonstrators threw rocks and petrol bombs there were a number of arrests and injuries some of the protesters tried to block
a holland to stop in peace from voting on a new scared plan british. is the bailout isn't going to help the greek people because it's only there to save the banks. one of the reasons that everybody is so determined to keep greece in the euro is so that the banks don't have to take a serious hit all their faults he made big policy so something has gone seriously wrong with the banking system it's almost as if there was no other holy alliance of politicians and bankers versus all three people i'm sure that's what the people on the streets of athens today feel like don't think the banking crisis is over i suspect but it's hardly the god i did many cases it might have been better to do what iceland did and they say look these banks go bust these people lose their jobs these people lose their money that's unfortunate about life and i suspect we're going to regret keeping the banks afloat and imprisoning countries like greece
inside a currency union which they're just not suited. and. caught up in a violent protest in the heart of athens her firsthand account is available on our website our team dot com. ok we see the great i'm not really. great i love the people that you don't want to be filming every come to you but. because there are also plenty of other stories and videos at our t.v. dot com including stunning images of a rare total eclipse of the moon on wednesday night. and your course will hear the next round in ongoing legal battle over victor borge the russian man america accuses of being an international arms dealer his lawyers and the prosecution will discuss the case with the judge who is awaiting trial in a u.s. prison but as marine corps deny reports the legality of proceedings is being questioned every step of the way. he is
a russian citizen america thought relentlessly to adopt it or boot was secretly and swiftly extradited to the u.s. seven months ago and this may be where he stays indefinitely if found guilty on arms smuggling and terrorism related charges if you use could be. he's looking at life there's no parole there's no early release in the federal system really only was in the federal system you get a reduction in your sentence. a significant reduction is if you cooperate with the united states government some have argued. beyond captain america's team however captain america is being accused of playing dirty and illegally to remove the air cargo business man from thailand according to documents released by wiki leaks all levels of washington top to bottom now to political pressure against bangkok to gain custody of boot in a us cable dated august thirteenth two thousand and nine u.s.
president barack obama was urged to call thailand's prime minister directly about boot the u.s. attorney general and state department were encouraged to call the thai ambassador highlighting the massive drug enforcement administration commitment to thailand and the us ambassador in bangkok urged the thai government to issue a public statement of disappointment at the judge's ruling not to extradite boot america is the world's most powerful nation but it's a lot more powerful than the world unfortunately the way things stand right now they're willing to flaunt every international law to get what they want and that means doing all these illegal things in the case of the extradite him or kidnap him who was arrested in bangkok in march two thousand and eight during a u.s. sting operation he was charged with conspiring to sell weapons to colombian fark rebels on two occasions its high court rejected america's extradition request when an entourage of armed u.s.
agents removed him from thailand following a decision of the thai government his extradition was still not legally approved the covert operation was kept secret from russia but it's family and his attorney pulling. the transfer of america was a violation because very amusing treaty signed in one thousand nine hundred eleven commission is coming up with interesting. roys the case was not finalized and was moved to the you will not let me hear you. you know the outside to believe what you know what. you believe is not good enough for you to this day high officials have not provided official documents explaining the legal grounds behind extradition this despite repeated inquiries made by the russian foreign ministry. would not support what we claim and know for sure that on november sixteenth two thousand at the moment. it was physically of time prison was being considered by the time court
of appeals and that is why very mild legal ground for them to finish your score. i mean time. in the u.s. prison held in solitary confinement his wife doubts her husband will receive a fair trial from the country she says violated international and bilateral laws to get him but. it's clear to everyone that the case has long been moved from the sphere of law to politics i think or rather i would love to think that the american court is unbiased but i have strong doubts about it because i think such pressure could be put on anyone including the jury. the country accusing bitterroot of dealing now finds itself a little hard pressed to come october an american jury will decide picture of the future they political pressure exercised by the u.s. army evidently the. artsy. iran is promising transparency and
constructive interaction was un's nuclear watchdog the e.u. has been pressuring to iran to give evidence of its peaceful atomic intentions but in an interview to r.t. iran's envoy to the atomic agency says his country has nothing to prove and nothing to hide. as was raised by the united states and i approved of that investigation taking samples and having to go. says that all these allegations have basis in fact before coming to the end i was in charge of escorting all the spec does and i was with them in this way to size it which would prove these allegations had no basis this is a very unfortunate that eight years they are repeating these boring stories one thing is clear that we do not have a program for nuclear weapons we are fully cooperated with as they said the un-p.c. done the most robust especially in the history of order five thousand men these
make him gay have known every days of divergence of nuclear material to prove he did purposes and the statement or claim by the ocean with due respect to go to the region. and you can see the full interview with iran's envoy to the international atomic energy agency next hour here on our. now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world and a half a group claims to have knocked the central intelligence agency's public web site off line a firm calling itself security appeared on twitter to confirm it was part of the attack the group has previously claimed responsibility for cracking into the senate u.s. public broadcasting system t.v. network and a company that works with the f.b.i. the cia website was inaccessible on wednesday. a u.s. congresswoman shot in the head in january has been released from hospital after recovering enough to walk and talk again gabrielle giffords still faces daily

research vessel was damaged in some very rough seas going to sea is never easy it always involves risk. we ran into a store and had some trouble with our rudder so we came into this choice very very base where we're having which a way and why in parts and where the russian bases offered help and other bases around of offered any help that's the kind of international cooperation that we get may antarctic which we may not get in other places because of its remoteness and because all countries that are here recognize the importance of all the work that we all do here working together is vital for the survival of those at the different international stations as well and the winter medical evacuations are impossible because of the weather conditions. and a lot of this it is very important to cooperate with other stations where different doctors here with different specialties so we complement each other for example my main specialty is orthopedics trauma i'm the only one here as you can imagine my
specialties in high demand here they are for our neighbors get in touch with me quite often we also ask our neighbors to help us with diagnostic devices we don't have one of the areas where cooperation between countries is strongly evident is in the realm of scientific research where ideas and information are exchanged the regularly so that multiple projects can benefit for example we're working right now with the germans who are further down the peninsula doing a survey and we will combine our data with their data at the camera meeting we also work closely with the british and provide any other help with scientific investigators that come aboard our ship to conduct their search their studies as well as. here to different dive teams discuss how they can share information and samples between russia and germany. and beyond the lab different countries keep an eye on each other to make sure that all activities are in line and. the antarctic
treaty system an international monitoring program that helps protect the earth's southernmost land and we've seen that just today which is the basically they all operate very closely you can very well treated the russians the giants and the chinese are testing facilities the antarctic treaty i think is one of the unique treaties in world history in terms of that kind of corporation and it is this special bond of working together in such an extreme environment that creates such a lasting friendships that is years ago when i came to the station for the first time one chilean put it very well leave the conflict the politicians we the polar explorers have to live in peace because if we can't remind ourselves who else can we rely on for help. in antarctica shawn thomas. i see sean's arms reporting from the world called us continent you can read more about his adventures in antarctica and his blog and. within a mile of. one of the most extreme environments on the planet this is antarctica

forum kicks off and this year presidential aide arkady dvorkovich says simply his big form is more important than ever for russia as it begins to look east as well as western investment sees tatyana put a cover brings the details. this loosely is preparing to host thousands of gaffes had just laid out the economic growth from all over the world for free they long discussions of the e.u. iran in the global economy it will be all about the merging leadership expanding to close your horizons and building creative capital the key speakers at the forum go to russian president dmitry medvedev and rosenthal china region tower we'll see what they have to say and you will have the coverage of the events here on r.t. . russia and china hoping a landmark gas deal will be signed as the chinese leader meets with president medvedev in moscow the deal follows the launch of an oil pipeline to china this
year and is key to globalize in russia's energy trade and it was also hopes to gain increased bargaining power in european markets but currently absorbed most of its gas exports to china on the other hand needs russian gas to help fuel its rapid economic growth and reduce the use of environmentally damaging coal but despite common strategic economic goals the two nice ones are struggling to agree on gas prices. let's have a look at the markets and see how they are performing oil prices are gaining after an after making more than four percent loss overnight the biggest one day drop in in months was heard on by a spike in the u.s. dollar against the euro as greece's debt troubles appear to be worsening agent markets continue their losses as investors react to fresh developments on greece's sovereign debt crisis and some disappointing u.s. economic disaster energy companies were also hit by we could crude oil prices with japan's impacts. corp down two point nine percent and banks are among the main
losers in hong kong with the agricultural bank of china down one point seven percent and here in moscow the markets will stop trading in one hour most of my take on ask yes close in the bridge on wednesday with energy majors and industrials among the main loses. even though investors do not expect a major changes around the world they will be closely monitoring events in the u.s. and greece that's according to the vice president of equity sales and that creates here who says the markets could be also influenced by the same petersburg economic forum investors will be tracking us very closely because last week we just had a very bad week in terms of you know disappointments and it's not that things are going down it's just that the pace in which growth is actually happening is a bit slower than expected so i expect people to be focused and in terms of maybe whatever news could come out of the st petersburg forum not sure there is anything market moving there but you know in terms of specific names like station because as
you know we have an election year which is you know buying into populism so whatever comes out of there could be influential so keep an eye about. the sukhoi superjet makes its maiden flight under the brand name of russia's flag carrier aeroflot later on thursday the plane will take passengers from moscow to the st petersburg international economic forum the super jet is the first russian passenger plane built in the last twenty years so point has already secured secured seventy three orders for the chip and hopes to sell eight hundred by two thousand and twenty four. and that's all the business news for now will be back in just under an hour with more stay with us for headlines with marina next.
