a business bulletin. is there is he coming to you live from moscow marina joshie welcome to the program russia and china have vetoed a u.n. security council resolution on syria european backed draft called on damascus to and its crackdown on protesters or face targeted measures moscow and beijing said this could pave the way to levy a style military intervention artie's marina fortnight has the latest from new york . russian ambassador to the united nations vitaly churkin said the draft was too one sided he described the resolution as a confrontational approach taken by the european delegation and against the peaceful settlement to the crisis now this draft resolution which was proposed by
france with the support of portugal the u.k. and germany but the one part of the text that many countries seem to disagree with was that that called for syria to comply with the resolution within thirty days and if it if not comply then the council would consider its options including unspecified quote measures many council members including china russia brazil south africa interpreted these vague terms as leaving the door open to sanctions now of course russia is one is one of many countries that has been opposed to international sanctions against syria ambassador churkin says moscow believes the violence should be stopped through internal reforms and political dialogue not external sanctions or military intervention such as the case
of libya and you bring your suit when you broke with the draft resolution which was not supposed to be was based on an entirely different philosophy the philosophy of confrontation we cannot agree with its one sided accusations against damascus we believe the threat of implementing sanctions against the syrian government isn't acceptable this approach contradicts the principle it was peaceful settlement the crisis was based on common serious national. brazil india itself africa and lebannon abstained from voting on the resolution but it was the united states that voiced it. stream of disappointment that the security council did not alternately adopt the resolution moving forward russia and china said that they will be working on a resolution to gether that they say will be more balanced in the case of syria we do know that some council members wanted not only the syrian government condemn for
the violence but also a condemnation against all the anti-government protesters that may have been inflaming the violence that has been breaking out over the course of six months but that is a measure that the europeans did not want included in this resolution. or die reporting there while the view by russia and china follows three months of heated debate in new york the disagreement has split security council but moscow is certain its action was justified r.t. is going to be explains. russia has only used its power of veto seven times since the collapse of the soviet union and in case of syria russia feels it has to prevent similar scenario in yet another arab state to what happens in libya after the u.n. mandate to protect civilians was implemented that resolution was tossed in march with russia abstaining from the vote but the mandate was picked up by nato which
sided with and to gadhafi forces in libya helping them to topple the county and russia claims that in case so in case of the un mandate was misused and has vowed not to let that happen again russia is actually the only prominent member i'll be your security council which is actively trying to negotiate a peaceful solution to the crisis in syria thus it has hosted representatives of both president bashar al assad and members all of the opposition trying to notch them toward styler and russian lawmakers have also gone on a fact finding mission to see red concluding that damascus is in fact implementing democratic reforms of promise and that it needs more time to bring them into force the u.s. and its european allies have already implemented as such sanctions aimed against president assad and a fool to him to step down or russia claims that such a one sided approach at the only make matters worse and that is sending
a biased message all strong support for the opposition to keep fighting which is only fueling tension inside the country. the syrian ambassador was given the floor in new york following the security council vote bashar jeffrey took the chance to have a go out of washington. the u.s. has used the v. to fifty times to protect israel and it continues to threaten to use the veto power this could be considered partying in june the surge. the common saw the entire u.s. delegation had a bye susan rice walk out of the meeting in protest a syrian envoy was referring to america's stands on the palestinian bid for full recognition of the u.s. the white house says it will veto any resolution to grant statehood saying that such a move can only come through direct talks between israel and the palestinians. we're always interested in your opinions and we'd like to have your thoughts on the

understanding that they needed to move a lot faster on this crisis they still need to move much faster and ultimately time is running out because greece is leading the contagion that is going to kill the in europe by the end of the year if we don't see positive and rough production realistically action means that greece needs to leave the euro because the problem is we cannot leave citizens of the european union just starve to death because it suits a troika of international lenders. well we are closely following the exaggeration in europe and for more on that you can log on to our web site r t v dot com to find the latest news analysis and updates such as tough blow for rome as investors service movies slashes italy's government's bond ratings by a devastating three point as a result of the country's high levels of debt. also online apple is no longer
