if you tell someone the earth will it cost and value resort and spa the ritz carlton hotel grounds many articles of each of the seasons hotel the sultan who told. stories on our t.v. germany's highest court rules of the country's bailout billions for struggling nations are legal but once angela merkel she'll have to ask permission next time she wants to run the rescue. the deadly blast rocked india's capital ten people are dead and dozens injured in the city's worst attack in nearly three years. moscow appeals to the global community not to repeat history's mistakes by leaving libya and syria in shout balls. just after four pm here in the russian capital this is r.t.
8:01 am
our top story a top court in berlin has thrown out a series of lawsuits which said germany is back rolling of bailouts to ailing european economies were illegal but not just ruled out giving chancellor merkel a blank check saying any a future aid must now be pre-approved by parliament well that could have or germany's ability to react swiftly to any new crises but sets a precedent for other nations to tighten their belts as well opposition parties welcomed the ruling but said merkel had made the crisis worse through delays and a lack of vision for the national visor believes there's little to celebrate just yet. ultimately this is actually i think what we would call a character victory it's an empty victory for mrs merkel and yet be a large can go ahead but like all the court judgments we need a small print and what is happening today is that in the german court which has clearly been very very much split only issues come up with an annoyance and we're still scouring through the. small print so what we read so far suggests to us that
8:02 am
they're going to request of the german parliament and most importantly of all the german budget committee has zero grid more say on what goes on in the whole issue on a larger basis what we're looking at today is that yes below it can go ahead and at the same time it's still a very very quietly picture of the euro we know that the german people are deeply unhappy about what's going on and they don't see there being any benefit in suddenly giving a credit card another bottle of vodka to a drying drunken man in a department store and that's what we've got here it's going to still be a terrible result and once the marketers have a bit of a relief rally which is going on as we speak what's happening is greece's essential being sold by. slavery by the way that the euro debt mechanism is working hard for greece it's a farce for the greece people and it's a total complete and utter disaster for the euro greece should be allowed to go
8:03 am
free and it must make its own decisions its own sovereign decisions but it greece doesn't leave the cancer is spreading and as we know it reached the last month it's already were rooting around the place and stay in haiti or trickle it in ireland or does the disease google for it finally kills the patient i think the question is it's not a question of how much work is there to get greece side of the euro actually a much chances are that the euro is going to survive with greece to win it and the answer is really not. further south there is clear frustration among italians and the spanish where thousands rallying of protests at their government's fresh a steady measure is italy's forty five billion euro package welcomed by the e.u. includes new tax hikes advising the retirement of forever well spain of the demonstrators ahead of a crucial senate vote on amending the constitution ceramic national debts will you as a rights groups say that that cap will decimate the welfare system and hurt them.

a good national security adviser not an honest some indians. and since this had happened just what is. nine eleven and we can say that this has something to do with. those who dia's again but since we're in the last seven or you could actually have any conclusion we can see that this rich group this group would. have been. at the end we might conclude then that ok this particular group was there what we cannot release to a final conclusion that this particular group was there and so obviously there are you know india is no stranger to sort of terror attacks we thought the blast that happened just last month and then obviously that. we had lost our connection there that was our r.t. correspondent peter schrager reporting from new delhi about the blast in front of

8:10 am
experienced it's just but from the libyan capital he says. he's turned it into a ghost town. there is no administration there is no there is no it's called law and order has been replaced by a crew of rebels some fear that the various groups who've emerged might soon stop fighting each other that shit weapon stores have been raided every man with kalashnikovs if the tribes fight for their independence the country will answer and never ends in civil war the brutal urban guerrilla warfare lists argue that even rebel leaders don't know where therefore it is a from. rebel hands mom with julia was a launch to find islamist sleeper cells had joined history and see if a vast parallel structure of confidence has appeared we have no idea who is in charge of them. hopes of
8:11 am
a reliable replacement for more by gadhafi appear to be fading libya's rebels remain deeply divided while the chaos from nato bombing appears to be spreading beyond the country's borders in the turmoil there are fears that religious extremists could be using libya as a base to further their aims in north africa and function is in. the nation women got abortion rights twenty years before women in belgium on the last regime divorced women good benefits revive arab family just movements and trying to reverse that. before the war leaders from barack obama to nicolas sarkozy and silvio berlusconi shook and even a kiss is good that he's got to get rid carpet treatment in paris but the west will also change tack what experts if libya doesn't go for them as planned according to this man who's just returned from war torn tripoli the message from some locals there is that the conflict may have created a frankenstein's monster for europe they warned us that we don't know what we are
8:12 am
creating and it will be a free haven of extremist groups which are just on the southern border of europe poirot's from failed somalia their coast a no go. frighteningly some diplomats now think libya is heading in the same direction but what they will do that it is military and will not be. there will be part of us and there will be all bloat to control the mediterranean to make it safe i don't think french economy can support that western intervention in libya has pulled large numbers of new forces to the fore experts fear the west itself may come to regret their emergence daniel bushell seen brussels. and staying with the region's troubles russia and france are calling for more dialogue between the syrian government and its opposition to try and be addressed and there's also a warning there there should be no repeat of what happened in libya that's
8:13 am
a good meeting between the french and russian foreign ministers are to follow their talks. well surely there is a number of differences in the approaches an understanding of some international issues between russia and france but so the two countries do call each other a long term strategic partners and they are on common ground when it comes to a great amount of international and local problems now i'm talking about syria moscow employers are in full understanding bad the situation with their to repeat what happened with libya and it's absolutely vital that the opposition in syria has a dialogue with the authorities and we are convinced it is some terrorists of g q did we start from the talks and this is actually what the syrian leadership calls for and we think this is it is extremely dangerous to transfer the forces in syria to boycott these talks to me the russian in france wants to see this happen
8:14 am
this is this week's truly dangerous series of those are some of those party sciri should stop producing file and soon which are proposed to get a resolution to this effect will we encourage the government to carry out the reforms it has launched and the opposition should not use provocations and recherche a magician is to dialogue question of why it comes to the different approaches on syria between russia and france france calls for tougher sanctions on the syrian authorities while russia stands for peaceful dialogue but anyway the syrian situation is still to be discussed later in september at. a general assembly meeting in new york when it comes to it's no secret that russia has been criticizing fiercely the military operation conducted by nato and
8:15 am
this was a point of. misunderstandings and different approaches between russia and the west but right now there is an moscow are saying that they're ready to cooperate and work together to bring back peace into libya to help every store of the country its economy it's more of course libya is also going to be discussed at the u.n. general assembly later in september. some of the world's finest minds are essential russia right now with how best to solve the desperate situations in libya and syria among their priorities is a third global policy forum of the ancient golden ring city of all and artie's and he said is there for us. to become known for attracting talk intellectuals and policy foremost what have we heard so far. well really the discussions are focusing on multiculturalism but we've had a lot of sessions today on security in fact and unlike you said the issues there
8:16 am
are of course what's happening in syria and libya especially but with the arab uprising if you will really the focus of a lot of those sessions we had some pretty strong words from the russian president's envoy to africa gayle of talking about libya there he spoke about how he doesn't believe all of the mistakes that we've learned from all of the mistakes of iraq and afghanistan and that patience really needs to prevail as opposed to any kind of pressure to enforce a european style democracy in a country which he believes libya is not quite ready to do he also expressed concerns about the fact that if something does happen to get taffy that the civil war could spiral spiral out of control and get even worse and also a lot lately not from him we're hearing but we have been hearing a lot of issues about how in the interest rebel fighting back could prevail if things keep going the way they are and to talk more about the situation in libya
8:17 am
syria and what's happening in the middle east north africa joining me. professor of political science at yale university thank you very much for being with us i'd like to get in with. with libya in fact we have nico margiela saying that he feels like mistakes haven't been learned from in terms of iraq and afghanistan what do you think your future holds for libya and how can the country get out of the situation that it's it well i think it's i think there's probably a right on the mark i think that the most comparison is with afghanistan because you're really dealing with something much different so-called arab spring. and. you tip into lesser iran you're really dealing with the civil war which is by no means over i mean even. if gadhafi is defeated and all killed which he said i think he's left the country now that doesn't mean the civil war will end
8:18 am
either most of the leaders of the opposition were members of paid off he's government until. a few months ago. they don't have any history of promoting democracy and i don't see any particular reason to think that they'll start now so i do think it's much more like afghanistan and i understand the. impulse maybe to learn too many lessons from iraq they will want to remove the play on certain regimes and supporters which is what they did in iraq and then there was nobody to run the country. but there may simply be no basis for democracy in libya in the foreseeable future and this doesn't mean that we're looking at another iraq another after another ten year or so while we're not we don't have nato do not have soldiers in libya so i think it's more like i'm gonna stand. it's more like afghanistan surely than iraq but i suspect
8:19 am
that. the europeans will not want to push soldiers in there precisely because it's an ongoing civil war right fessor political science from yale university and guelph school of law thank you very much welcome alex and we will be here over the next few days really as analysts leaders and experts discuss the world's most pressing issues and i see you. all right thanks very much there and he said nally reporting from the novel global policy forum. all right national identity is a powerful emotion but when you've been a small part of a big country for the best part of a millennium you can feel a little help but take wales it's time you british present polity that now wants the same taste of freedom as their celtic cousins in scotland artist or am it reports on why the people of the valleys are valued to get a bigger voice. welcome to wales part of the u.k.

8:21 am
an outright majority in the scottish parliament which has many powers devolved from westminster the party's promise to hold a scotland wide referendum on whether to declare independence according to applied comrie that marks the turning of the tide for a unified u.k. people i believe beginning to to use the word independence in in a welsh context which they think they wouldn't have jennifer hughes and i started bt valid so i think that people in where's it going to see that when stockland becomes independent the next logical step is for will be coming to bangor to of course separatism is nothing new to the british isles and the thousands of victims of the troubles in northern ireland are testament to how high feelings can run both in the present day and for centuries past while national sentiment may not be a new phenomenon the reasons for it have changed over the years and in these.
8:22 am
current turbulent economic times money talks scotland has oil and gas but while wales was a proud coal producing nation its mines are now closed and it's got some of the highest unemployment levels in the u.k. because of that the older generation is reserved when it comes to independence but young people are filled with national fervor for them independence is less about money and more about nationhood and identity wales needs to be independent because it is a great country and we do we do and of like doing is already patriotic i think we're more patriotic than england we have a lot of people there we should. just seem to be better here at the moment that you can get free prescriptions. education seems to be a bit better played comrie says it's going to build on that support providing not just emotional reasons why wales should be independent but concrete economic
