mission street now in the war. on the. syrian activists report more protests today says russia urges the u.n. to get both sides in just a way to avoid a repeat of libya's chaotic descends. israel authorizes its special forces to shoot it close to me in protesters as they prepared to margin support of a un bid for independence claiming it's to prevent bloodshed. in the gas impasse between ukraine and russia with price talks in prospects but tied up in a time that. he it has but battled on its decision chris to rush out you know order to have the two thousand my gas contracts revised moscow says that in any case it is ready to battle down the board join me for all the fresh details from ukraine's
capital g. of. how the most you could still agree on lower gas prices a crane agrees to merge a state run nafta goes with russia's going strong more in twenty minutes in business. a very warm welcome to you this is almost the line from moscow new jester being reported in syria as the head of the international red cross meets the country's senior officials he's in damascus them discussing the humanitarian side of the conflict which is thought to have claims able to howell's and lives meanwhile russia's rounding members of the un security council to encourage the science to stop bonded and start making solutions the kremlin believes president assad housework the taste situation on the ground from his efforts to some credit for the
u.s. and its western european allies are pushing for action against president assad's regime which they've already found. sanctions in general do not but because countries always lie in ways to go around the sanctions and saw that sanctions would slide only eleven to tie and go on with production of oil although they would give the banning of importation so it's not quite logical and most probably syria would find different outlets for where it's viable in every single one of these situations is every time that the west or other countries talk about a humanitarian intervention a question that needs to be asked is why there is they did mention in some countries but not in others for example in bahrain the people wanted to get rid of their regime but since it was so close to us it was no question of humanitarian intervention and there is no question of them financially saudi arabia no question of intervention to help the palestinians so the humanitarian question cannot be be
forced political and economic pressure and you have to find that political and economic and military interests before you start believing in it to manager and reasons as most in all so called interventions humanitarian interventions you there's another reason which is far more important. while serious struggle drags on let's see how it's impacting on the people on the stricken country elegy that in a condition because they're. the show. the dealer is a master barber those small his shop was floored until it all ended in a snip. in the. forest when the kilometers away from damascus but now the flow has come down a lot first came the under arrest and then the crackdown then the west's quickly stepped in with sanctions how to survive the economic pressure on the cheap the political. the budget and help the people of syria to achieve the magician
aspiration at first all major credit card transactions were stopped earlier this month but that mainly affected foreign tourists because syria runs its own payment system and those with syrian accounts didn't feel the pinch however of the e.u. when the us are tightening their grip by imposing oil embargo on damascus so will that have any probable effect on the people here. of course sanctions will have a negative effect on syrian economy it's a diversified economy with a stable death which gives it a certain immunity against these sanctions. and this is not just government gloss in the face of impuls adversity syrian opposition figures are also unconvinced but for a different reason. this iranian government have chosen their path and no matter what measures are taken against them will continue down that route. sink ships are sold as a precise weapon to hit where it hurts but syrian evillest see there are too blunt
a tool and it's the people who will suffer the most when you are talking of world oil or busying or. we call it it could be as a senior citizen. but while the power dealers of the west in syria trade insults and blows for syrian workers like my dear the daily battle is to keep his modest livelihood together while hoping for the best isn't girls' school r t damascus syria all over libya the old regime may have been toppled but the fighting showing no sign of letting up the rebels say they done enough talking with our steve this is from the front by one of colonel gadhafi and his loyalists remain determined to the end. israel is to allow security forces to shoot up palestinian protesters who are preparing to march in support of their bid for
statehood out of the u.n. later this month tel abuse claims it's trying to prevent bloodshed by arming settlers in the west bank for self-defense artie's a policy is across the relevance there. in some quarters there is talk of a into florida that some will say will be as bloody and as violent as the two seculars of whom there is some four hundred thousand living in a man's that has some two and a half million palestinians in the west bank are bracing themselves for violence as is the israeli army and the israeli police and not for several months the israeli army has been preparing in an operation it calls operation some is seeds and it's now in the final stages of putting the finishing touches in place to this end we're being told that they have the most hated aides resigned around everything from them to the waste bank and what this means is that palestinians who approach beyond that red line will be shot at by soldiers who have commissioned to do this now there also has been intensive training in terms of security groups within the state
women's they have been participating in girls but on these being undeserving says' even provided with stun grenades with water cannons as well as with tear gas canisters on saturday we saw a lot just protests in this country's history one hundred thousand demonstrators took to the streets of ten cities here in tel aviv was one of the focal points a number of speakers a number of artists address the crowd they spoke about making history they said really that this was a turning point in the history of this country what protesters have been demanding for the better part of two months is the social issue just as really what they say is definitely not who government needs to be let's focus on issues of security and focus on internal problems problems such as the high cost of living in this country and this is a criticism that is facing the criticism that he is spending too much time on issues on the international agenda rather than addressing real domestic concerns
here at home talking to protesters they accuse netanyahu of being past the i've been under sponsible and have been out of touch with what people in israel are concerned about. well let's focus on jerusalem possibly becoming a flashpoint during the planned palestinian march in support of its statehood bid michael about a charge the from the joins up palestinian israeli peace and you know the alternative information center joins me live now from jerusalem many of us have been with us here on r.t. now palestinians are preparing for what they say will be a peaceful march but israel's arming settlers as we've been saying security forces and the police to their teeth saying it's to prevent bloodshed is that logical to you. if if this decision is indeed the decision of the grown minister it may be
an indication of the kind of provocation the government is interested to to arms a certain we heard on the already existing for you so i would like to explain that this is not really the intention of the government otherwise it would be. to live terrible consequences but is there any weight to the claims made by the israeli government that these are necessary procedures to ensure self defense. the settlers are not the one to be attacked in most of the cases the palestinians daily attack to raise a surplus only the last few days they have been. so call retaliations. near the town of nablus. the settlers are heavily armed from the very beginning of the
israeli occupation in the west bank and gaza. what is important is not that they would have more arms you cannot to the maximum question. what the intentions of the government and this is what is worrying about. it is a crucial time for palestinians ahead of this un vote on their state you yourself suggested that israel is preparing to provoke perhaps violence on the mind that chances for independence do you think that worry is likely here. it's very difficult to know what happened. in september it's even not true that there will be a last attempt by the u.s. administration to convince the palestinian leadership to drop the
motion to change its content and to make it conditional or maybe with a timetable. what is not predictable also is. what will be the reaction of the palestinian population what we know the. israeli army is preparing itself. and. it's an official statement already three months or. they eventually. must palestinian demonstration outside the borders of the palestinian cities well let's look at the worst case scenario here and this upcoming protest by the palestinian people if there are any incidents if any palestinian a blood is spilled jaring not much whatever cations do you think that could have on israel. we don't know about what israel we are speaking today after the demonstration of
last friday with half a million people in the streets it's obvious that we are dealing with a new israel. of israel no one can predict it but i would assume. in the present situation. reaction from the israeli army. by the israeli government may be confronted with a must demonstrate inside israel two or you talk about the emergence of a new is rare and certainly the current prime minister has recently been facing a barrier to criticism at home over spending too much time and resources are holding back palestinians rather than on addressing the very pressing social issues at home the high cost of living except for so what do regular israelis on the street say about how he's handling this particular situation.
one must say two things the first which is very promising is. it will be very hard today unlike several years ago to demobilize the israeli public opinion by using the word security or even by using bloody incidents incidents like the one we have written is a couple of weeks ago in the south of israel the reaction was very strong we deplore. the terrorist operation we. mourn the dead but we will not stop our demonstration we will not back of our demands on the other hand. there is a real danger to try. to curb israeli public
opinion or to davis israeli public opinion. hitting the border maybe in the north of israel recently the government from the government the prime minister of greece there were leaks of boat new. in the hands of his blood which could be a preparation for a military operation in the north. about chastity co-founder of the alternative information center a joint palestinian israeli n.j. many thousands speaking to us about this upcoming march to take place thankfully. now the head of nato says the alliance is military intervention in libya will not end with the capture of colonel gadhafi on the front line rebel forces away with a green light across one of the last remaining pockets of resistance by get out and supporters rebel negotiators say ceasefire talks in the town of bani walid broken down the country's interim government is certain there's still hope for
a peaceful solution the national transitional council. two of the kernel sons who have been blocking. have now left the area unclear number of. holes in the town one hundred fifty kilometers from tripoli they barely have been given till today to lay down arms and more lawyers are making a stand the iraqis hometown said and several other areas but is artie's ria financial report for the band could prove. they've been preparing for this operation for quite a long time with nature helping them clean path towards forming facilities in the area and he will lead has always been known as a stronghold and people from this area since the beginning of this conflict here in libya been fighting against rebels all across the country and have been dying for. all the time been supporting gadhafi who has provided them with
a very good emission and the best weaponry so that's clear that it will not be easy for travels to take control over these areas while they need is actually daffy who has been known and well. not surprisingly remains the country's number one priority is thought to be right now with his sons in this area this is. one more reason to take control over the area as soon as the national transitional council has repeatedly been claiming recently that tripoli is not secure and is not safe and that they're working hard to try to restore order in the country on the territory now controlled technically by the national transitional council but with we see on the ground actually made so.
they are successful so far apart from humanitarian challenges this. the country actually currently facing such a severe shortages shortages of food water food medicine and fuel politically situation this very unstable the city is full of people with an unclear agenda many of them very young with little knowledge of how to use weapons and it's quite unclear who is controlling the. ukraine says it's willing to negotiate. with the kremlin said it would rigorously defend the deal in international courts foreign minister sergei lavrov met his ukrainian counterpart to talk energy here push for a new discount because the struggles and paying current contracts are. well certainly over the past seventy two hours it clearly seems that the temperature in this new gas crisis has reached critical level especially with somewhat sensational
a very loud statements made by president bush president of ukraine he plans to sue russia in the international court to have the two thousand and nine gas contract revised now the situation has changed dramatically over the past twenty four hours with the ukrainian prime minister to go as out of saying that until the new price is agreed until the new contract is signed the ukraine will be sticking to the current contract and will be fulfilling whole of legations this contract paying up to four hundred u.s. dollars for one thousand cubic meters of russian gas which is the market price and this is the price which ukraine has been pretty much on the happy with russia is not as strongly dependent on the ukrainian gas transportation system as it was back in two thousand and nine now we know according to russia's prime minister vladimir putin the north stream pipeline will be launched pretty much through in fact it's a test run will be started to morrow on tuesday and winter stand in the months in
a month's time european consumers germany in particular will be receiving the gas through the north stream pipeline does that is something which was not existing in two thousand and nine also when your stand at the south stream pipeline is also going to be going to be completed in the nearest future so this means that the european consumers have nothing to worry about according to all the officials in moscow in gas from in the russian energy ministry and in the kremlin and we would not see the another gas war which would affect the european continent this time around patience is rapidly running out of the european central bank with greece being ordered to show that it. has agreed in its bailout here is a new warning debts widening in the chief wants to brussels a bigger role in how countries knowledge their own affairs. is that for example what sort of tougher regulations is he planning for with a single currency say. yes greece could fail to get its second bailout if it to
carry out the terms of its first one that's according to the european central bank chief trish a he said it's absolutely imperative to toilets and monitoring of countries in the eurozone calling for a single european government to impose economic decisions on countries according to a more governance within the eurozone is absolutely essential i mean if you talk to you call them is here i'm not sure creating a single single government with the e.u. bureaucrats making decisions for national economies is the right way to go ahead or even if it will save the euro anyway with growing numbers of people here fearing the single currency maybe a sinking ship. that. is about greece. about as well. the. e.u. i.m.f. and the greek officials are all in a part of the e.u. says greece has failed to cut its deficit you also have countries like finland who
are resisting any more bailouts until they really understand what's going to going on in these troubled countries not just greece but obviously also portugal spain they use given greece a few more weeks to go through there it's a plan that will kick on the situation in that country again of course that's raising even more doubts about greece's ability to avoid quitting the euro and the situation of italy is giving more pull for the whole of there has refused to pause this latest austerity package so it's understandable why investors may be panicking here in europe at the moment. live for us from brussels. ok let's check the walls of the main news right now on the yemeni plane that reportedly found a mosque in the south that was thought to be on occupied by islamic militants killing at least thirty dollars the killing of seventeen extremists in yemen years drugs in the region insurgents were linked to al qaeda and the city of john in
april and beyond going hunting government demonstrations and political crisis in the country. the march today trial of former french president jacques chirac is resuming the judges deciding whether the frail seventy eight year old is well enough to face court he's charged with embezzlement while the mayor of paris sun paying body where there's a nonexistent jobs the longest serving eggs leaders the first french president to go on trial since the second world war he faces ten years jail if convicted. sudan's bounders main opposition party the former rebel movement which is now the ruling party in the newly independent south sudan police arrested members and seize property claiming the s.p.l. and party's illegal decades of civil wars will become to split into two in july but tensions remain in disputed territory where the militias continue deadly skirmishes with sudanese troops. i hear it as
a few minutes away from cross talk which discusses if it's time to get the rich to pay their way while the rest of us are suffering attacks in time first though the business is with you via. very well welcome to a business update prussia is easing in the gas dispute between russia and ukraine kiev says it will all of the current agreement but still wants to renegotiate prices moscow has said down its terms it wants to see grain agree to merge the state's runup to gas with russia's cast from this well it's actually leave moscow will get out says to the gas transit network of ukraine the country's president says the country will not allow this however experts say it's hobson's choice. for your people but they will be greed to create a joint venture aleuts the transit business if they want cheap gas they will have to give all but a pipeline even don't believe they will have to the market prices will go it will
be wrong three hundred and huge dollars per thousand cubic meters stop them from october the thing is the industry in ukraine is much more power hungry than me ruled so ukrainian goods will inevitably be more expensive. let's have a look at the markets now well as losing ground as investors speculate signs that the queue at some chinese economies are weakening indicate fuel demand will fall to the world's largest crude consuming nations plant is trading at one hundred ten dollars a barrel while light sweet is close to eighty four dollars per barrel. and the us markets are closed for a public holiday and is just minutes left until the under strain in europe sovereign debt wars coupled with bad jobs data from the us is losing european financial slow the salary for the markets dropping significantly as a result of the housing finance agency alleges that major u.s. and european banks misrepresented the call that have mortgages they sold during the
housing bubble as a result for all loans and dorchin mentioned in the lawsuit are down ten and eight percent respectively. and rational stocks of drop for a second day after a while the country's main export revenue or. that slipped and let's have a look at some of the individual she moves on the my six energy majors one of the biggest losers gasp from slate two point six percent left last. cent and russia's biggest lenders their banks slumped. over one percent as you can see from the crop. all the falling market presents some of the challenges for bargain hunters have the same. world believes it's too early to call the bottom and the prudent investor will be would be better off sticking to the sidelines. it might be somewhat close to the book them some people believe from say and the recreational boat and fishes around but you know one of probably we before making
any serious decisions any quotes or blue chip name which is you know essentially has come off strongly and has good ability to generate cash to play didn't it would be a good church is clearly its own gas company a sort of sniffed will guest room brush metal company has lost on there is between thirty to fifty percent year to date so they were the major loses in this game consoles you know obviously they knew recovery scenario companies would give ross mitchell could be a very good bargain so it's cetera. good weather and the end of the grain export ban won't help russia sending in this year's crop of brought experts estimate the total exports henschel of this year's harvest are thirty million tons other forces say they'll be lucky to export twenty five million tonnes and it's all to do with the inability to get the grain from the farms to the ports shuswap just a mistake when we achieve more than three million tonnes of green exporter in
august we're bitterly stealing it is we see the re we system is not able to transfer more to the ports where the docks can handle shipments of up to five million times a month for the real we system barely managed to transfer the august volumes promised so ok that wraps up the business boys in new york today more business news than last time.
culture is that so much of a taxpayer is limited because it has no real craziness so for the rates during the great financial contraction millions lost their jobs and homes but the rich of only gotten richer should the rich paid. the worldwide manhunt for him lasted for fifteen years. now one million euro board wasn't promised first come check. little miss murphy of the west. for minions of. the general and the serbian army. mug. her in the sun our chief.
