moscow my name is kevin and first for you libya's national transitional council has a seat now at the united nations which officially recognized the former rebels a new resolution easing the sanctions imposed euro get duffy's ranging provisions also made for financial assistance from the un for rebuilding the country has got it you can use the veto. one of the things that the new resolution envisions is a special u.n. support mission in libya that will be set up for an initial three months to help in what diplomats insist is essentially a political operation it would give advice on restoring security but would concentrate on efforts to undertake inclusive political dialogue promote national reconciliation and generally help the government in libya organize elections and write a new constitution and that kind of u.n. participation is welcomed by all members this is something that washes and going to the united nations was talking about saying it's a u.n. responsibility to help create some kind of a law and order system that would put an end to the chaos there as
1:02 pm
a result of the failure to properly implemented previously one resolution aiming at protecting civilians the country found itself in a full scale civil war with civilians suffering most also the resolution expresses the security council's determination to lift the no fly zone over the levy an airspace in the very near future well that's a provision put forward by russia and a provision that received the support of members take a listen. to in libya by channeling the situation into political diplomatically and it's important the council considers lifting the new fly zone over libya particularly as this no fly zone is being violated arbitrarily now induce the new reality on the ground maintaining the new fly zone no longer makes sense its lifting must be part of the international community's efforts to address the aftermath of the libyan crisis. the resolution would also ease economic sanctions imposed on libya and make sure of billions of dollars of assets frozen by
1:03 pm
the security council in february and march are soon available to and for the benefit of the people of libya the general assembly on friday gave libya's un seat to the national transitional council which toppled moammar gadhafi although not yet controlling the whole of libya the rebels nevertheless represent their country at the u.n. general assembly next week as with the arms embargo imposed on libya there or uncertainties whether everyone at the u.n. security council is on the same page here russia called for removing a ban on small arms supplies to levy or to protect u.n. person personnel diplomats and humanitarian staff but the essence of the french british proposal with regards to lifting the arms embargo is yet quite vague so there might be some tension over the issue there anyway when it comes to concerns over the proliferation of arms in libya and its potential impact on regional peace everyone seems to be on the same page and the security council has clearly expressed those concerns the amount of weapons in libya that are up for grabs is
1:04 pm
extremely worrying more production is hardly left behind are brimming with weapons and the rebels have helped themselves those weapons mean very well wind up in the hands of people who have other agendas then defeating could offie that's the kind of concern that russia has raised on a number of occasions saying in a care like the one unfolding in libya the weapons will inevitably end up in the hands of extremists and terrorists and not just weapons but maybe nuclear materials that libya possibly has to a correspondent in washington to so you've got a future so libya's former rebels have been given instant official study to the palestinian struggle and recognition feel about vote right now. the sense of solidarity and love not the first place. later in the program we speak the palestinian politician who thinks that her people deserve fair treatment from the
1:05 pm
international community. but back to libya the no fly zone remains in force is nato and former rebels back the new leadership is pushing to the few remaining gadhafi enclaves alliances drugs reportedly residential buildings in the town of sirte but the countries that were quick to condemn attacks by the colonel's troops back in march now seem to have gone silent explains. david cameron and nicolas sarkozy surveyed their handiwork the most senior leaders to visit tripoli since their countries began the nato intervention in libya they say their work is not yet done. with. the billions. and. he's right civilians are still being killed but now that gadhafi is virtually powerless the people increasingly doing the killing are national transitional council forces together with nato as they attack bani walid and other gadhafi
1:06 pm
strongholds on that cameron and sarkozy are silent to paraphrase george orwell in animal farm some civilians are more equal than others nato insists they're targeted attacks but there are reports of m.t.c. reprisals against suppose it daffy supporters clearly there are real problems on the ground it's a legacy of such a conflict that you will have human rights abuses taking on both sides i think the rebels the national transitional council have promised to hold their own fighters to account and i think that that is a process that we will see from now it doesn't seem to be happening yet the african union and the edges the transitional forces are hunting down and killing black africans on the assumption that gadhafi recruited them as mercenaries. that's borne out by reports by amnesty international. which says the rebels are guilty of unlawful killings and torture it takes pains to point out that gadhafi forces
1:07 pm
committed some terrible atrocities but also documents a brutal settling of scores by rebel forces including the lynchings of gadhafi soldiers meanwhile daffy's hometown is one of the last holdouts a letter purportedly from the colonel himself begs the u.n. security council to protect sirte from being pounded by nato and to tackle what it describes as crimes by the forces of the new government civilian deaths are seemingly assured. cameron and sarkozy were quick to condemn gadaffi the killing innocent libyans in the lead up to nato is no fly zone being imposed but no such rhetorics being aimed at the empty sea in fact it's quite the opposite britain sponsored un resolution to ease thanks and against libya and against the national oil corporation in particular getting the oil
1:08 pm
flowing again your emmett's r.t. london. ethnic tensions on serbia's border with breakaway kosovo intensified following friday's takeover of two disputed border posts from police with the assistance of nato led forces of place customs officers a checkpoint previously under control now locals of drug prevent what they call the unilateral action of course of. furthur pulled from near one of these checkpoints. well we're at one of the border crossings you ready and the roads leading up to it remain bloke's by the protesters now we actually can't get too much place and when you go up to the front of that cross thing you're stopped by the bubble and we can see some of the k. for forces on the ground that we saw helicopters coming across and. you like helicopters dropping off some of the police forces to these crossings also the albanian cause the police they've only actually got to each each of the checkpoints
1:09 pm
at the moment and that only for the time being in an observatory role now of course the plan is for them to eventually take a the control and that's what much of this dispute now amid concerns repeat of what we saw in july when violent clashes over the course think of a making of me to try and take these places resulted in the death of a policeman is actually being relatively quiet here today what we've seen is a huge number of the serbian ethnic serbians turning out at these barricades but what we've got at the moment is the standoff situation is being called a war of nerves because at both the checkpoints at the barricades is the serbian protesters and then the case full force is at the actual crossing themselves ok no one wants to make it be the case full force if they want to make a move to break up the barricades the fear is sparking violence and the set in protest is for exactly the same reasons they don't want to be preventing violence so we had the u.n. security council calling an emergency meeting at the request of serbia and russia
1:10 pm
and no final decisions were really made from that there were a lot of countries that were unwilling really to make a statement take a verse these control points going ahead despite the warnings from belgrade i'm from russia that this could really lead to further agitation. near the border checkpoints or refers to alexander probably choose a political analyst from belgrade he told me things the nato led mission in kosovo's violating the u.n. mandate by siding with pristina on the border crossing issue right now. ok for meaning nato have absolutely overstepped their mandate their un mandate is clear they're supposed to be neutral down there they're supposed to be keeping the peace they're not supposed to be taking anyone's side they're clearly taking the albanian side the secession is the government increased to the capital of kosovo and we have the security council we have five states each with veto power we have three western
1:11 pm
states and two non western states so really if the west decides to support any unilateral action. you can't stop it so it's not surprising they've been sponsoring kosovo independence for years now and they're actually thinking that they're entering the endgame now and they're actually doing a hard push for it right now. life. still plenty to come out of news including down to a very basic question. well not be able to get. like that. you wouldn't. hit the streets of new york funny how much it's. coming back to. also check out the.
1:12 pm
tourists are flocking to surprise a relic of the soviet. well
1:13 pm
when one deals with war for us to realize this tremendous amounts of damage that are done not just human damage but damage to the physical environment in which the battlefield takes place tremendous amounts of damage.
1:14 pm
whether it's sonic boom sea tracked marine mammals or it's the burning oil fields or a rock or destroyed coral reefs. for purposes the list just goes on along with the geneva conventions of forty nine states that are shall be taken in war protect. against widespread long term and severe damage the united states although it is accepted almost all of the provisions one has taken exception to that. in a passionate address palestinian president mahmoud abbas has vowed to seek full state
1:15 pm
recognition of the u.n. security council next week that's in spite of a u.s. promise to veto any such bid it also deals a blow of course to israel which may know if to give up the territories it's occupied for decades some settlers know accuse the israeli government indeed of using them as pawns in a land dispute paula sleep as the story. binny was wanted to meet us here in one of israel's bustling cities he wants to talk but not in his own city home and where he's seen as a troublemaker they are afraid to talk because they're for. the for me or for my drove but beneath won't be shut up he says he's tired of being used as a pawn by the government fifty years ago the state made it easy for him to buy a house he didn't have the money so they offered him a cheap one the only catch it was in a west bank settlement now years on he wants to leave but can't because his property has harmed in value since he bought it so. going to help.
1:16 pm
from the so no war because the government doesn't want the people of the west bank after the. agreement was there for syria to have to show that it's full of people in the people of doesn't want to live in peace is one in two states has pointed out that the government does everything it can to keep them in most of the land here it's there and difficult but that hasn't stopped people from building on it in a month to month constructs and has begun on more than two thousand projects here in the west bank and what is a pilot is get extra money from the ministry of education for extra teachers or extra money from the ministry of infrastructure for more infrastructure means less payment by the settlers these were the biggest incentives that are not written anywhere in the book istomin suggests prime minister netanyahu spends nearly a billion dollars a year just to keep the statements going but that has to come from somewhere and
1:17 pm
tens of thousands of israelis did the math the answers brought him onto the streets in numbers never seen before in israel's history but netanyahu has no plans to leave the settlements the goddess of what it does to his economy alter the peace process there is no political the. hating israel about whether it's right or wrong just doing it and we know about many certain lands and the eastern part of the fence where you have a lot of arguments which are andy as palestinians head off to the united nations the israeli army digs in around the city moments and with them in the way the prospects of peace seem as likely as binney was actually leaving the west bank policy r.t. . palestinian politician one told us palestine deserves recognition more than some other nations the going to release a sense of sorrow and loss not station an anger that others instantly get
1:18 pm
recognition instantly those who won't even as prepared as we are and who haven't lived for sixty three years under brutal military occupation get recognition get statehood get support get an understanding from the international community and yet we are constantly preventing from getting these things by the israeli occupation by an american administration that really pays to see the imperatives of justice i think it's about time that palestine joins the community of nations as an equal and is no longer treated as a subhuman species right. eurozone finance ministers have delayed now till october the decision on another hand of rescue cash for greece they don't think the country is doing enough to cut its massive debt. receive a billion euro loan at the end of september ask them says it will run out of money next month and won't be able to pay really present
1:19 pm
a considerable debt the last few months have been plagued by indecision among e.u. leaders on how best to deal with greece's debt which is now one and a half times the size of its economy but it's not alone the global financial squeeze is of course being felt everywhere is very hard for us in new york. as the global economy continues to struggle poverty levels continue to rise are you feeling the effects this week let's talk about that. well let me see i moved out to manhandle back to my house in central jersey which was i abandoned two years ago. been out of work so basically i'm just living a day by day this is the wrong place to talk about poverty because here everything is so expensive so. it's weird but how is it in israel we have a lot of people but it's ok you feel like it's getting worse there it is getting
1:20 pm
worse it's actually where the. big manifests three thousand people manifesting because it's too expensive they're living in israel that's baloney what's baloney property is on the rise you don't believe it is what's poverty. well not being able to get the basics in life ok it's it's been like that since creation is it worse or better it's probably about the same as it always was so you're not by not so why would people manufacture such baloney sell newspapers you wouldn't have a job if this didn't happen have you felt the impact at all. yes because i work with the law for a profit. women but we're seeing lots more women. what do you think would happen if a middle class disappeared. i don't think that's ever going to happen i think things are going to get more expensive and there's not to be any more american dream there's no more white picket fence and not everyone to be able to. whether or
1:21 pm
not you personally feel the effects of the rising poverty level the bottom line is it seems like this trend isn't going to reverse anytime soon. so a completely different be a few curious as to how it may have felt like to live in the u.s.s.r. at one point then there's one place where the soviet spirits frozen in time these days is not even in russia either it's the turn of barons bergin the arctic circle which lives on a norwegian archipelago called spitsbergen a vibrant settlement grew up there after mining rights were granted back in the one nine hundred twenty s. but when communism collapsed so did the community so in the third of a special report for our son a boy finds out how an old soviet dream still provides a means of survival but he's also helping preserve the past. it's a legacy no one should be proud. of scrap metal ring pristine arctic landscape building stilton over that foundation pipe spewing black smoke over the snow
1:22 pm
covered peaks the traces of the soviet industrial activity on the spitzbergen archipelago don't make a pretty picture if the guiding principle here is the worse the better local like to tell the story about back in soviet times when norwegians were visiting barons were they also an express lane. and how prosperous this settlement was well times have obviously i can't buy this all in black as they still attracting new region tourists or barons work i would then cons much needed cash that's why while. our goal is common as was the coverage here a few days ago instead of throwing it away the local administration decided to paint the venue and put it at barron's work central square communism had long stopped being a lifetime goal but is rapidly becoming the means of livelihood the rusty soviet heritage has suddenly become a hot tourist destination for older generation of western tourists and while the
1:23 pm
tour guides are too young to have any memories of the cold war they're more than happy to cash in on this theory of types of a bygone era we have some problems with. here so tourists. this thing goes but now we have a new roof. line of. work. from. back in the nine hundred eighty s. daryn's work was a burgeoning mining community the soviet union was determined to maintain it a low cost strategically located halfway between north america and western europe the bergen archipelago is part of norway with a special status that allows other countries to set up industrial bases here in the middle of. cold war it served as the u.s. is sars westernmost outpost now it's one of the soviet union slask preserved relics
1:24 pm
. it is essentially a picture of what would have happened to the soviet union if it was cut off from any financial support for two decades it's a curious site for western tourists and i think it could be even more appealing for russian travelers to keep its presence on spitsbergen russia still maintaining a coal mine here but trans of profit is far behind local supernews shops so obviously memorabilia is a big hit the defunct are in curtain still helps keep the money flowing guys it's the russians when you're sure but you can't but rubbles there on the ground you are the local administration is increasingly under pressure to bring the infrastructure up to more than standards these modernization efforts are not very popular with tourists operators if you come into a very authentic place like non-sport it should stay the way it is that would be my wish i mean that's the part of the a little you know authentic tradition here. i should not i would not like to have
1:25 pm
it in a shiny condition to be honest the fact the change even for the better is not always good for business something that even a local band has become attuned to when they try to add morning russian songs to their repertoire it left the audience called all they wanted to hear it was a song comfortably familiar. sound like ours see you there in sport kids are going out to calibrate. well how do you enjoy those who is a reporter exonerate wraps up our special coverage from spitzbergen for now we can still find more about the reports and more about the northernmost outpost of the stuff you know our website out. there as well these stories got a lot of hits tonight a soft landing and a welcome home. for a team of space travelers they've returned to earth after a six month stint at the international space station a dramatic pictures of a very sad story coming up here as well a month in the air show tragedy in the u.s.
