with the negotiations expected to increase sanctions on tehran to iranians were charged over trying to haul members of a mexican drug cartel to carry something to iran dismissed as a comedy show well for more details on this joint is going to come on she's in washington going to america seems to be pulling more pressure on iran. exactly the u.s. aims to unite the world against the rand us what we hear from the officials here they are 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 that's a quote we're getting reports that the u.s. might raise the issue at the u.n. security council and generally a lot of tough words in washington these days the u.s. administration strongly believes in the case against this iranian born man also a u.s. citizen mounts for our who is accused of trying to plot the assassination of the saudi ambassador in washington the u.s.
attorney general said the man admitted being directed by quote high ranking you raney and officials and on these grounds washington says it will hold the reigning government accountable for the plot to kill the mass that are also the u.s. is accusing iran of conspiring to stage two bombings at the israeli embassy and the saudi embassy in washington denies all of the about all of the above are saying it's a childish game that you are playing possibly to divert attention from their domestic problems this is what they're saying meaning the ongoing protests across the u.s. but the saudis on the other hand have taken the allegations seriously and have thing u.s. authorities for for preventing the alleged assassination attempt and going to what washington claiming. called sustentation why would iran want to assassinate the saudi ambassador. that's a good question bill very rarely anyone here is touching upon the possible motive iran might have had for trying to kill the saudi official how you know how iran
could benefit from it considering all the fall out that would would have come with such an action would they actually do something like that something that seems to be a disservice to the radiance in the first place but that question is rarely asked here and most seem to take the accusations brought up but the by the u.s. justice department at face value and the main question you hear in the mainstream media is will the u.s. retaliate or not there's 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 up on the news i constantly hear phrases like we need to step up activities to undermine the government of iran we need to step up cooperation with this with saudi arabia and israel and that's what the u.s. will most likely be doing on tuesday going to come thanks very much indeed for that update from the studios in washington and kimbra force of russia host and of the
says that the u.s. doesn't have enough evidence towards iran in the moment with american public with the american public not ready for a military on to the alleged plot. so far the accusations aimed towards iran are somewhat unfounded although court documents to suggest that months or. it was an iranian american with ties allegedly inside of the uranium military we have not seen firm evidence of this to be the case but we are a war weary public here in the united states and that the possibility that we could have had a terrorist attack in another terrorist attack occurred here on our soil is certainly disheartening right now i think it's just diplomatic retaliation as it were in the form of sanctions or some other form but i don't think the american public is ready to see a military retaliation against iran at least not till we've seen some more evidence of their complicit involvement. on
a website what you think about the war to an iranian plot uncovered by the u.s. so as i look on the screen you see the results so far more than half of you believe that it was nothing more than an american point to. little less than a quarter think the story is just the tip of the iceberg with more revelations to come and ten percent say it was orchestrated by while the rest believe it's just a way for washington officials to boost their careers we could to hear your point of view your view at all dot com. bonding exercise prime minister putin strengthened russia's partnership with china during his high profile visit to the world's fastest growing economies came together to share common interests and commercial goals aimed at balancing the dominance of the west deals with seven billion u.s. dollars in energy trade and high tech industries are already being signed is yet to come sort of explains. that's who dave this is was more of course had an economic
flavor rather than a political one this was probably just a person's first visit since announcing his candidacy in the upcoming presidential 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 prime minister putin said the u.s. is currently using the style of monopoly as the only global reserve currency and that's how they and their kids have effect on their financial policy here because the but you 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 is a single global. problem is not only for the world economy but it with america's economy as well because it leads to a. 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 have a form of international financial systems and that the brics well should play a bigger role on the world stage and. i think it's time to talk about reforming existing institutions first of all means global financial institutions such as the international monetary fund and world bank and here we agree with the role of the brics countries in those organizations must be in even the growing importance of all countries economies another important issue here was energy corp a lot of their 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 and the goetia actions are still ongoing but both incest out there and the final stage of energy consumption is expected to increase dramatically in china and russia. could
cover that actual demand and in doing so for their strength and their strategic partnership. well for more on the growing cooperation between russia and china we now talk to his expert in global business management and also a professor at the college of business joining us live in the states russia and china say they want to challenge the dominance of the west namely the u.s. now is this something that washington really should be worrying about of the moment . i'm not sure it should be worried about but certainly something that should be and i believe he's aware of i mean we're talking about the dollar but what these countries have in mind. picture and what they see. us they would like to change that well interestingly enough u.s. lawmakers recently threatened to put higher tariffs on chinese goods what does that tell you maybe a sign of panic. i don't think it is
a sign of panic i think everyone knows that their likelihood of. passing through congress. you know is very low but. they want to flex muscle remember. elections are nearing remember that there is an ongoing recession at least in my mind in the u.s. senate globally and china makes for a convenient target i expect china to be prominently displayed in d.c. election campaign so are you also saying though that china all eyes are going east china asia could actually be the bastion of future financial stability when as you say the rest of the global economy is in bad shape. i am not sure i mean you know people talk about china. and unit all komatsu for the global economy
but we are indeed in the global economy china is very much dependent on what is happening in the global economy and if u.s. and european consumers are on able to. chinese goods then china has a problem and so far we have not seen the shift from export tool in and out of consumption as a driver off chinese growth talking about chinese growth it has of course being very rapid there are question marks over the future but nevertheless it is showing signs of becoming a superpower we've known about its recent military expenditure is ambitions they're also stretching as far as space now if you put russia and china together now could we actually see a change in the existing well the world. see already clearly yes.
some respect there are what is happening now. fairly dramatic at the time secret decision in the us you know around one thousand seven tool to reach to china as a way to. you know break free for all. you know hold well balanced between the soviet union and the united states there was certainly an attempt to change stat. obviously there also minivan very many issues that separate russia and china so the seas are not yet they're beginning go for beautiful french reproach went based on mutual interest but i believe it to be a very. on all sides. expert in global business management and professor at the fisher college of business than the state thanks very much indeed for your
thoughts life in the u.s. . thank you well still ahead this. massive disapproval in the whole world is singing in unison criticizing the ukrainian court for its guilty verdict of the former pm one of the most recognizable women in politics. these ten tough on occupy wall street protesters in boston with reports of war veterans being beaten. that story still to come but first israel has agreed to exchange over thousands of palestinian prisoners for one israeli soldier who was captured and held in gaza for over five years the deal with hamas is known being in the making however some high profile detainees will remain in israeli jails. reports now from tel aviv where the return of gilad shalit is being eagerly awaited. there are some one thousand and twenty seven prisoners who will be released that will be released in various stages the
latest we're being we're hearing is that the first that will be released possibly as soon as next week when we understand that could be taken to egypt egypt of course broke at this deal and the whole exchange will happen on egyptian soil bloodshed 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 so 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 many 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 certainly they have been celebrations throughout last night and they continue today particularly in the 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 they're all 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 among the prisoners who ought to be released a fair number will return to the gaza strip ever since god said it was taken hostage some five years ago there have been heavy restrictions on goods both coming in and out of gaza. an international chorus of disapproval has hit ukraine over the verdict handed down to the former prime minister yulia tymoshenko she's been sentenced to seven years behind bars and found almost two hundred million dollars
for abuse of power when signing gas deals with russia back in two thousand and nine the verdict the lawyers will appeal sparked mass protests among the supporters and . he has more for us now from cairo. the situation is still pretty much tense to because several hundred protesters supporters of the country's former prime minister last still stationed in their in their town here on the main street of the simmering tensions on tuesday. the gradient capital of course there were thousands of thousands of people here the biggest protests 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 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 a has in fact some and side russian pretext in it he of now finds itself in a very very difficult situation and that according to the union that any possible agreement on the association of the european union and ukraine would now be canceled and some even say that an invitation to mr yunupingu president of ukraine to attend a meeting in brussels in the nearest future could be even counseled certainly following all the developments and we'll bring the latest information as we get it
. weeks after the n.t. wall street movement started in the u.s. protests are still going strong and spreading fullest response by norm foresman offices also grabbed headlines with over one hundred demonstrators arrested for participating in the occupied boston splintered them but despite the crackdown social media consultant rob cool says the movement will continue and could have far reaching 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 explosion of technologies that everybody would use every day that would change our lives we don't know that the satellites that would be to send up would be used for cellphones eventually that they don't even exist what's happening here is is a phenomenon that's free it's an explosion and although right there are people like or hatch who are saying this is dangerous he's right but he just had
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 who you vote for because they're going to take care of the corporations first not the people. social media consultant rob call there on the phenomenon that's gripping the whole country in the us well if you've missed anything we've been covering on it had to r.t. dot com plus there's more news and comment here's a taste of what's online right now for a. look at how the case of a russian businessman accused of stealing is casting a shadow over the u.s. justice system. but also there online a russian tractor driver rescued dozens of people from a burning building when he drove his vehicle next to the window so people could

of what this project's really like. to bail it out and what is the point actually of bailing these countries are all the bailouts all these bailouts helping the people. out what they're actually doing is they giving money to these countries to give back to our banks. what these countries need who are trapped inside this economic prison. is they need to do it without devaluation having austerity packages pushed upon them which is forcing them into a downward deflationary spiral which in my opinion in greece and possibly in portugal could lead to revolution what we're doing is stupid and very very dangerous indeed i've just been in this. these people are absolutely intent creating a united states of. how many millions of people. they don't care about the tide of human misery that they cause they have got there but the reality is that
not only. is this failing but politically it's failing there is now a split from north to south and in the north we are witnessing a democratic revolution against the whole concept of the euro and the idea that people like mr. should govern five hundred million people it is not acceptable. well before the business update with kareena let's check out some other world news in a brief now an update from nigerian man accused of trying to bomb a u.s. bound flight on christmas day two thousand and nine has pleaded guilty. one of nearly three hundred people on the flight to detroit passengers became aware of the suspect after the bomb sewn into his underwear failed to detonate instead catching fire is known as said the twenty four year old would admit to terrorism and other charges if found guilty he could get life imprisonment. at least twenty three people are being killed and another sixty injured in baghdad. iraqi security forces
