9:06 am
moscow both sides saying that diplomacy and negotiations are the only possible and acceptable way forward both sides saying that the nato coalition forces are basically doing more. harm then good to the region in general and to libya specifically force russia frequently slamming the nato forces for their military presence in libya also saying that it will not support a un resolution for syria should it come to that though both sides seemingly seeing eye to eye on that position as well and sticking to their position and the fact that the only way to resolve the ongoing conflict in that region is by diplomacy. not about reporting right to use film crews in the southern russian republic of north asserting you have discovered a bomb like device attached to a car which is correspondent with you no question about it is in the north a certain capital with this report. this morning cameraman i mean i'm you know
9:07 am
found a divine during a technical car chakka and soon after that the whole area of that garage was blocked off by police representatives but according to the latest information that i received from the carom and as well as some police representatives it was not an explosive device that is well cars that many believed to be because cars are quite often used here in russia's north caucuses to carry an explosive device but to a radio be gone to. the location all four are eighty cameraman's car we were using this car quite often when we were going across the russians north caucasus to film different stories and to report on what's going on here in this region and this region russia's north caucasus is considered to be quite a volatile area there has been a number of anti terror operations that we were reporting on and according to russia's in terror minister over two hundred terrorist with
9:08 am
a leading hands of terrorist in different regions of this area have been killed since the start of the yeah and a many police representatives at the sin of the garage told us that this toxic. flogging an age of awe is that looks like a an explosive device or plugging in tracking at is also used by terrorists to create some sort of an atmosphere of fear among the population. reporting right there what are still to come for you here and i see the russian businessman being lined up in jail not justice as the extradited victor boot prepares to appear in a new york court his defense accuses politicians of twisting the jury's arms to keep him behind bars. right up to i mean news at this hour here on r.t. the russia china summit right here in moscow for more analysis on who was it let's talk to political scientist dr chung in beijing thank you for joining us today dr chung china and russia are on course to become major trading partners how might
9:09 am
this impact on the global economy for example for instance in europe. you know the china russia trade an economic relationship and a huge development between two nations i believe is not only of the impacting european continent but also saw the provos scene this economic trade relationship is not only limited to economy it's also religious the strategic relationship so it is going to be sure to the wall so not just economic agreements a relationship but also a strategic relationship as you were saying by russia and china are on the same page when it comes to libya and syria do you think that collaboration could help to resolve these conflicts or would this even be welcomed by the western powers already embroiled. as we heard yesterday from kazakhstan where hu
9:10 am
jintao attended at the air sea or. cooperation organization i believe they offer sholay or paul's to for the military escalation the call for the peaceful resolution. and for any follow the military strike going is to leave i believe russia and china are together with other central asian nations are trying to do more clearly more positive more i would say constructive and aggressive role to stop the military intervention in libya up by u.s. and nato forces. as you're saying the asian countries that attended the. yesterday are are opposed to any further escalation in the military intervention in libya and potentially in syria but now it appears all smiles between medvedev and hu jintao but they haven't always been agreements when it comes to russia's gas supply to china this is this is a commercial interest not
9:11 am
a political one but all the disagreements likely to be we've certainly seen some bickering going back and forth about the potential price of this gas exchange. according to chinese media as far as i read it seems to me some positive breakthrough might come within three days why would president hu jintao stays in most call at the tenth anniversary of the china believe treaty for the treaty of let's see good neighborly nice and friendly corporation significant moment for two nations for the sake of not only two nations for the whole erosion continent for the region and for though our relations i believe two nations will succeed in their gas and already you know with the operation to do in two nations began last january i believe this time they would make through
9:12 am
this. deal between two nations ok so you say you see this gas deal becoming a success between both nations and as you were saying certainly there are some regional implications there puts as we were talking about a few moments. about a wednesday's meeting of the shanghai cooperation organization in kazakhstan we did see a close collaboration and big proposals put on the table between group members do you think it's possible that the s c o could become the economic mover and shaker of the world. i hope so and i believe saw now i believe the wall these are at the crossroads historic crossroads or some may say the wall of these at the brink of either being subdued or all the calming the u.s. nato military intervention in libya now moving into possibly syria or even to iran if russia or china or all of these as see all the alliance
9:13 am
we saw there are not enough to stop the u.s. led nato military aggression in north african region so i hope saw that as see all russia china china russia leaving leading this new global moving on to balance the power in the wall and saw that they can build a new world order where norm or unilateral aggressive or even clone you know methodology being put into a sovereign nation such as leave your political scientist dr chung live from beijing thanks very much. russia's envoy is in tripoli to convince the regime there's no place for colonel capacity in libya's future but loyalist officials have told mikhail margelov the colonel is not prepared to step down it's the latest push by moscow to mediate a cease fire meantime there's no letup in the fighting with yet more nato airstrikes on a rebel advance towards gadhafi stronghold. reporting for us. the
9:14 am
visit to tripoli is part of russia's peace mediator mission in the protracted libyan conflict moscow has been insisting all the time that 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 who was sent here to try to get everybody around the table that's actually very hard to achieve the rebel supported by nature allies want to force gadhafi out while the colonel himself says that he will fight to the death meanwhile recently have been several signs indicating that a compromise is possible last week macomer gallop met with the opposition leaders in the libyan rebel stronghold of benghazi and talked to cut off his cousin in cairo and certain both sides have a mutual understanding that
9:15 am
a protracted war is not an option and the crisis should be resolved through peaceful means he also sad that 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 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 moreover nature continues to strike tripoli and we can hear bombardments mess of bombardments almost every night and that scares them as well where people are getting more and more angry and all they want is to get their normal lives bag frustration is high among the rebels as well as they feel as though nato. he's
9:16 am
taken control over what to them 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. and often are putting right there while there is somewhere in the world that is working harmoniously and we'll take you there in just a few minutes. it is. where several international crews come together to fend off the frozen conditions that they endure day to day we tell you how they do it. the case of a russian u.s. accuses of being an international arms dealer will be heard in a new york court on thursday victor boots been awaiting trial since his arrest over three years ago in thailand and his art is more important i reports his detention raises many questions over the legality of the case. he is the russian citizen
9:17 am
america fought relentlessly to adopt victor boot was secretly and swiftly extradited to the u.s. seven months ago and this may be where he stays indefinitely is found guilty on arms smuggling and terrorism related charges fifty years convicted he's looking at life there's no parole there's no early release in the federal system really the only way in the federal system to get a reduction in your sentence. a significant reduction is if you cooperate with the united states government some have argued mr bush needs to be on 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 mounted political pressure against bangkok to gain custody of boot in a us cable dated august thirteenth two thousand and nine us president barack obama
9:18 am
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 not 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 their to move to extradite him or should say kidnapping 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 the thai court rejected america's extradition request when an entourage of armed u.s. agents removed him from thailand following
9:19 am
a decision of the thai government his extradition was still not legally approved the covert operation was kept secret from russia boots family and his attorney. to transfer victor boot to america was a violation of a very important thai american treaty signed in one nine hundred ninety eight which states that political offenders cannot be extradited the case was not finalized and was moved to the us america used various means political. another's outside the boundaries of due legal process to get victor boot that means that victor boot is not getting a fair deal to this day tire fishel is have not provided official documents explaining the legal grounds behind boots extradition this despite repeated inquiries made by the russian foreign ministry that we know for sure let's all move into sixteenth two thousand and ten at the moment a little bit to beat was physically taken out of the time prison his case was being
9:20 am
considered by the thai court of appeals that is why there are no legal grounds for him to face a u.s. court. meantime victor boot remains 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. that 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 victor boot of our dealing now finds itself. political arm twisting come october an american jury will decide picked up a future want to be a political pressure at your side by the u.s. army evidently you are in
9:21 am
a fortnight our thanks to your. party is coming to you live from the heart of moscow let's go to some of the world's other big stories right now a strong blast as it struck nigeria's police headquarters in the country's capital has left at least. when it is reporting bodies of the scene cars on fire sending a letter of smoke into the sky police say the explosion was caused by a suicide bomber the attack follows two blasts at a police station and a church in northeast nigeria a week ago. which killed eleven. al qaeda has appointed a new leader egyptian iman al zawahiri who was osama bin laden's deputy and now leads the terrorist organization a statement from the group said it would continue its fight against the u.s. and israel over here is thought to have been the operational mastermind of the nine eleven attacks and warned last week that bin laden would continue to terrify the united states from beyond the grave. more than two hundred militants stormed
9:22 am
a pakistani village near the afghan border leaving at least five people dead many others were wounded in the cross border raid officials say the insurgents were armed with mortars or rockets and machine guns is thought it may have been a reprisal for government efforts to revive tribal militias to fight the taliban. the greek prime minister is set to unveil a new cabinet and seek a vote of confidence in the parliament the new government is expected to be sworn in on friday george papandreou has been pushing for more cuts to secure billions of euros in a second the e.u. bailout it's angry demonstrations in athens on wednesday with people throwing petrol bombs on the police responding with tear gas. well when they're working in the planet's most remote and inhospitable conditions it's key that everyone gets along and antartica the international workers there have got that down to a fine art. almost washed out different countries teams go to the ends of the earth to help one another. in the icy waters of the antarctic this research vessel was
9:23 am
damaged in some very rough seas going to sea is never easy it always involves risk we ran into a storm and had some trouble with our rudder so we came into this choice for a base where we're having the chilean supply in parts and where the russian bases offered help and other bases around have offered any help that's the kind of international cooperation that we get me 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 in the winter medical evacuations are impossible because of the weather conditions. in light of this it is very important to cooperate without the stations where different doctors here with different specialties so we complement each other for example my main
9:24 am
specialty is orthopedics trauma i'm the only one here as you can imagine my specialties in high demand here they are for 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 regularly so that multiple projects can benefit for example we are 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 meetings 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. 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 with. the antarctic
9:25 am
treaty system an international monitoring program that helps protect the earth's southernmost land and we've seen that just today visiting these people basically they all operate very closely people are very well treated by both the russians the giants and the chinese that tacit facilities the antarctic treaty i think it's one of the unique treaties in world history in terms of that kind of cooperation and it is this special bond of working together in such an extreme environment that create such a lasting friendships back thirty years ago when i came to the station for the first time one chilean put it very well leave the conflict to politicians we the polar explorers have to live in peace because if we can remind ourselves who else can we rely on for help in antarctica sean thomas r.t. . with r.t. live from moscow and more headlines are coming your way but first though we go to some petersburg where artie's a business bulletin comes live from the annual economic forum.
9:26 am
or we do apologize here on our technical difficulties with our connection in st petersburg will work to get a establish but for now i will turn to kareena for all the latest business news right here from the heart of moscow. hello and welcome to our business and here in moscow now all eyes are on russia's northern capital as the any like anomic form gets underway and this year presidential car which says it's more important than ever for russia as it begins to look east as well as west for new investment every currying same at the forum as how much the russian government has done to improve the investment climate in the country because of your u.b.s. russ and c.i.s. says there are many things that have already been achieved.
9:27 am
this year would you know if you take into consideration the twelve contracts of the strong which were presented in the tender that goes from and look cool to part in being realized and it will amount to twelve million barrels a day in seven years to do right produces four to five million barrels or use will triple that amount to more than five hundred million tons i think that growth rates overall usage will remain at the same level so if the east asia is using me all products and it will keep using them to meet the demands of its economy we hope that it will all balance out but the production volume in iraq will undoubtedly be significant. now we cross threads or who is at the st peter's to bring us more on what's happening. that's right it is finally sunny here in st petersburg that couldn't be said
9:28 am
yesterday or this morning but finally the sun is out making for a much nicer atmosphere a much nicer and nicer atmosphere to enjoy the st petersburg international economic forum and to get a lot of good business done which is something that the russian government certainly hopes can get done here with a lot of business and a lot of innovation that they hope to bring to russia especially using this forum as a vehicle for that as far as that goes there was a lot of business going on today there were two important deals signed one between dow chemical and the skolkovo fund in order to create a research and development center for russia that's something that has put to paper on this morning also ross nano russian nanotech for signing with some asian partners in order to create a nanotech fund of more than one hundred million dollars something to spur research and development in the nanotechnology field something that has a lot of potential innovation being a very important aspect of this year's conference also the head of the
9:29 am
international energy agency saying that giving so little bit of a prediction this morning during his talks something that raised a lot of eyebrows he believed that in twenty in two thousand and twelve the oil price would be about one hundred to one hundred ten dollars a barrel so that's something that definitely people paid attention to this morning but like i said innovation and he a key sentiment of the forum this year something something that ice talked about earlier with timothy draper venture capitalist. so this is a great time for both for the me to. yandex and mailroom but i think also for for companies that are started with real russian technology we're. where russian technology and entrepreneurs can spread to the rest of the world right now most of the big successes are our copies of us developments but.
9:30 am
