the isolate iran with the allegations expected to increase sanctions on tehran by two iranians were charged over trying to hire members of a mexican drug cartel to carry over your talk or something to iran is dismissed as a quote comedy show for more details now we're now joined live by it is going to get you kind of standing by in washington d.c. a guy many so american pressure on iran seems to be growing well i guess or a u.s. aims to unite the world against iran that's what the we hear from the officials here they're talking about the need to completely isolate iran in the international community vice president joe biden for example said the u.s. action against iran could go beyond sanctions but added that we are not going there yet also we hear we were getting reports that they grew as a might also great raise the issue of the u.n. security council we hear a lot of top words in washington these days the u.s. administration strongly believes in the case against this ukrainian born man also u.s. citizen monsoor are about to see are suspected of trying to plot the assassination
10:02 am
of the saudi ambassador in washington the u.s. attorney general says the man admitted being directed by quote high ranking ukrainian officials and on these grounds washington says it will hold the ukrainian government accountable for the plots to kill the embassador also the u.s. is accusing iran of conspiring to stakes to bombings that these really embassy in washington and at the end of saudi arabia in washington iran's denies all of the about saying it's a childish gain that the u.s. is playing and that they have fabricated the case the saudis on the other hand have taken the allegations seriously and i think u.s. authorities for preventing alleged assassination attempt so a guy in a washington already mulling over possible sanctions saying they could also take it to the u.n. security council. what's washington claiming all the actual motives behind the circle the talks and ocean floors. well we very rarely anyone here is touching upon the possible motive iran might have had for trying to kill the saudi official considering all the fallout that would have come with such an action would they
10:03 am
actually do something like that something that seems to be a disservice to the iranians in the first place but that question is wearily asked here instead the drums of war are beating on all mainstream channels they definitely take the accusations brought up by the u.s. justice department at face value one of the main question they ask is will the u.s. retaliate or not there is there is quite a few people in washington who root for retaliation in the meantime officials say all options are on the table not clear how far this will go but the news but on the news they constantly hear phrases like we need to step up if it is to undermine the government of iran we need to step up cooperation with saudi arabia and israel and other things along these lines and that's probably what the u.s. will most likely be doing. in their life in washington thank you. all right i will it's time for you to get involved with us here at all so you were asking on our website dot com what you think about the thwarted iranian plot uncovered by the u.s. are checking out the numbers right now and more than half of you believe the attempted
10:04 am
hit on the saudi ambassador to the u.s. was an american ploy to smear its enemy just a quarter think the story is just the tip of the iceberg with more details to come thirteen percent say it was okas treated by terror on while the rest believe it's just a way for washington officials to boost the koreas cost you'll vote and don't come . up on doing exercise prime minister putin strengthened russia's partnership with china during its high profile visit to the world's fastest growing economies are coming together to share common interests on commercial goals and to balancing the so called dominance of the west deals worth seven billion u.s. dollars and a trait and high tech industries have already been signed more still to come. closer reference explains. the two day visit was more of course had an economic flavor rather than a political one this was promised a person's first visit since announcing his candidacy in the upcoming presidential
10:05 am
elections and some say it's a sign of a change in focus for us and that the government is now looking east for both russia and china of course members of the breaks group along with brazil india and south africa and the growing economic uncertainty in europe and the u.s. has seriously undermined their dominance of the global political stage paving the way for a margin economy is now prime minister putin said the us is currently using instead of monopoly as the only global reserve currency and that's having a negative effect on their financial policy if you will because the you i never said the us was a parasite on the global economy but i do think it's feeding off the monopoly of the us dollar as a single global currency the problem is not only for the world economy but for america's economy as well because it leads to a violation of financial discipline. when it comes to the e.u. vladimir putin said that greece is a big problem but that it could have resolved if countries that weren't afraid to take action he said of russia and china should lead the reform of international
10:06 am
financial systems and that the brics well should play a bigger role on the world stage. i think it's time to talk about reforming existing institutions first of all i mean global financial institutions such as the international monetary fund and world bank and here we agree that the role of the brics countries in those organizations must be enhanced given the growing importance of our countries economies another important issue here was energy corp lattimer put an end his chinese counterpart said there are all issues and this agreements were resolved when it comes to russia supply of oil when it comes to gas negotiations are still ongoing but both insist out there and the final stage of energy consumption is expected to increase dramatically in china and russia could cover that extra demand and in doing so for the strengthening of their strategic partnership. marina closer over there from beijing with more on the growing
10:07 am
cooperation between russia and china we can now talk to. a professor of international politics at the universe ryssdal and i thank you for coming on the program russia and china say they want to balance western influence and then leave that to the united states do you think should washington be worried by this. no it shouldn't china and russia are coming to going to not necessarily just for the planet and seeing all that west i think they have common interests to develop their economies as well so that's a. top of the gender of current visit by premier who did to china obviously both china and russia are also great powers and they are security council opponents security council members they have responsibilities. broader international arena they also have some common strategic interests in this very determined interwoven for i think their cooperation it's natural it's not necessarily sort of targeted at
10:08 am
the united states so as you say china russia some similar ideologies on foreign policy they have some strategic interest to as well but what about the economic crisis going off in much of the western world the eurozone going down america having trouble that possibly a motivation force but behind this partnership between between russia and china obviously are china needs energy russia has energy absolutely i mean in terms of energy corp certainly there is a synergy over there china china desperately needs a lot of energy and resources and russia has it and also job graphically obviously it's very close to china supply line and so on so there is a natural reason and very logical reason to want the two countries to go great in that front but talking about the global financial crisis and the euro zone financial crisis here again i think both china and russia also have a great stage at the end of the economic recovery of. the global
10:09 am
economy and also certainly seen the overcoming the debt crisis in the euro zone and therefore i think that the crisis itself is not the reason for china and russia to come together fortunately but you seemed. you have managed to escape the then huge severe damage of the global financial crisis and suddenly a moment at the eurozone debt crisis more sudden as you say a russian trying to have managed to avoid the brunt of the global economic crisis but not entirely unscathed now if i may china is the first place where a lot of my putin has visited since announcing his plans for the presidential elections of two thousand and twelve how significant is that and you think is he looking possibly to shift foreign policy more in an eastward direction i think that's very much debated and discussed probably there's a russian and chinese media certainly of some symbolic significance of putting his visit but remember also that this is
10:10 am
a meeting between the two premiers and obviously to take the opportunity to sort of. possibly convey his vision of russian policy towards the east that will speak to the chinese leaders because he's going to be oh i suppose we are to be lectured to the russian president and again at the helm of the russian foreign policy so it's very important at this opportunity for him to really articulate or to convey needs. to the chinese leadership obviously the recent the premier putting also come out to sort of suggest a kind of asian union and other strategic vision is it's very important to again keep the communication with the chinese leadership and and share some kind of thought so so yes i think it's very important. more than symbolically important for the. prime minister putin to make this visit to china and to communicate directly
10:11 am
to the chinese leadership someone who is sort of young jane a professor of international politics at the university of bristol that's all the time we have for right thanks judy. i want to still ahead for you this hour here on our mass disapproval now the whole world is singing in unison criticizing a ukrainian court for its guilty verdict of the former prime minister one of the most high profile women in politics. and the police turned tough on the occupy wall street protesters in boston with reports of war veterans being beaten up. israel has agreed to exchange over a thousand palestinian prisoners for just one israeli soldier he was captured and held in gaza now for over five years the deal with hamas has long been in the making however some high profile detainees will remain behind israeli bombs. now
10:12 am
reports from where the return of gilad schalit is being eagerly awaited. there are some one thousand and twenty seven prisoners who will be released there will be released in various stages the latest being we are hearing is that the first that will be released possibly as soon as next week when we understand they could be taken to egypt egypt of course broke at this deal and the whole exchange will happen on egypt soil it was taken captive back in june two thousand and six now at this stage we don't have the intricate details of who's on the list of prisoners and what the deal involves but it does seem to suggest that there has been not that much movement on both sides in terms of the deal over the last few years which is why many are saying it's the israelis who have given their email and certainly the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has a lot to gain from such a deal he's facing immense political pressure both internally and internationally must avoid side is coming up the winners of this deal so he they have been celebrations throughout last night and they continue today to kill early in the
10:13 am
jabalya refugee camp in gaza so that is why you are hearing some voices in israel some voices of concern that the capture of one soldier is going to be something that is encouraged on the palestinian side because the price for one soldier is particularly high at this moment there are more than eight thousand prisoners who are currently being held in israeli jails among them are many women and children some three hundred children many of the prisoners are also there without having been tried and now there are some prisoners who are currently undergoing a hunger strike they protesting against the general conditions in the prisons we've been hearing from activists who say that particularly the political prisoners they have basic rights like bathing that are being denied to them ever so it's going to actually it was taken hostage some five years ago there have been heavy restrictions on goods both coming in and out of gaza among the prisoners who are to be released a fair number will return to the gaza strip. paulus lee reporting right there now
10:14 am
about six minutes away from the business here. an international chorus of disapproval has hit ukraine over the verdict handed down to a former prime minister yulia tymoshenko sentenced to seven years behind bars and find almost two hundred million dollars all of this for the abuse of power when signing gas deals with russia in two thousand and nine or the verdict that lowers will appeal spot mass protests among the army of supporters. he has more from kiev . situation is still pretty much tense to because several hundred protesters supporters of the country's former prime minister lost still stationed in their in their town here on the main street of the simmering tensions on tuesday. the cranium capital of course there were thousands of thousands of people here the biggest protest we've seen so far in the last three months the international reaction has been furious. regardless of where you look with which part of the
10:15 am
world everyone have been very disappointed with the verdict the united states washington said that had to be released the european union different parts of it also expressed their concerns and indignation over the verdict sentencing the country's former prime minister to seven years in prison and confiscating all of her property russia also reacted furiously to this decision saying that those gas deals which were signed back in two thousand and nine were completely legitimate they stress that once again and saying that the decision by the court in kiev in fact neglected russia's concerns over the legitimacy of these all these gas deals in two thousand and nine and also the russian foreign ministry stated that the decision by the purchase court is in fact has or has in fact some and so i russian pretext in it he of now finds itself in a very very difficult situation when to stand out according to the european union
10:16 am
that a possible agreement on the association of the european union and ukraine would now be canceled and some even say that the invitation to mr young president of ukraine to attend a meeting in brussels in the nearest future could be even canceled we have certainly following all the developments and will bring the latest information as we get it. the reporting right there. to case has already caused gas dispute between russia and ukraine just last month he had been pushing for a discount on the price of currently pays claiming the deal signed by the next prime minister was in the james from the chatham house says that to call the gas agreement between moscow and kiev illegal is simply absurd. there is an anti russian subtext because they are trying to find the maximum or justification for false second alteration of the gas agreements no to say that it's the agreements that yulia timoshenko entered into in two thousand and nine zero two
10:17 am
one contract and then secondly a supplementary agreement said they were illegal is utterly bizarre the post president chen of clothes which is in the file little to these rules when he couldn't who did the kharkiv accords with president. in april two thousand and ten he affirmed the validity of the accords that your earlier timoshenko well ok to do it with prime minister push it so that this is one of many absurdities in this whole drama unfolding here without a lie from moscow now weeks after the anti will street movement started in the us a protest still going strong and spreading fast and the response by law enforcement officers has also grabbed headlines with one hundred demonstrators so far arrested for participating in the occupy boston demo but despite the crackdowns social media consultant rob collins says the movement will continue and could have far reaching
10:18 am
consequences. what's happening here could be as big a deal as the space program when we first started the space program we were talking about launching a satellite into space a rocket up there we didn't know that an explosion of technologies that everybody would use every day that would change our lives we didn't know that the satellites that were being sent up could be used for cellphones eventually they don't even exist what's happening here is a phenomenon that's huge it's an explosion and on the right there are people like orrin hatch who are saying this is dangerous he's right but he doesn't have a clue how dangerous it is people are waking up there are so many there's a lot of anger about this people are furious that they're getting ripped off that the system is broken that it no longer represents the people that the congress represents corporations now this is a very common thing that whether they're democrats or republicans it doesn't matter
10:19 am

10:21 am
old age pensions in slovakia and ultimately that doesn't make sense i mean slovakians or the low. most wage earners in the euro zone they're incredibly fiscally pragmatic they've run their economy in a very sensible and intelligent way and ultimately they feel very very i agree with great justification about paying for greece that is ultimately in a column e. where the government lied about their figures in order to get into the euro in the first place. all right kareen is here in a minute with the business but for now the world update here on some other headlines from around the world this hour at least twenty three people have been killed. that is. security officials say there were at least three separate explosions with suicide bombers targeting local police stations. just days after iraq asked for more than five thousand u.s. military instructors to. me and general amnesty for more than six thousand prisoners has begun with dozens
