back with another update about fifteen minutes from now in the meantime even in the twenty first century china remains a mystery to much of the outside world or not so if you sit down with bitches and observer of global social economic and political trends she's also written a book on china and tells us what lies behind the enigmatic nation that special interview next. doris nesbitt thank you very much for being with us today thank you where much for having so in your opinion why has china and still remains to greatest mystery for thinkers and scholars because there's too little interest to get to get behind the mystery in all something stays a mystery if you don't have enough interest to to open the curtain. there's also
you know somebody said that a philosopher sherman philosopher said that most people do not want to learn something new but what took at confirmation of something they already believe in and i think that's very much the case in china we have a certain picture of china and i wouldn't exclude myself ten years ago levon years ago before i went to china for the first time i had a certain picture of china which was not really matching reality but then it depends on you willing to change the picture or do you stick with what you think how is it changed ten years on for you well. i was thinking the chinese are mr mysterious people you know you can't really trust them and you never know what they think i thought that the country was much more backwards than it turned out to be. the fact is that the chinese have have still have and still today
have kind of an innocence and openness once they trust you they embrace you and they really become friends with you and you can criticize a lot you know you can also was chinese politicians we talk a lot of. things in china that are not as they should be. you can be very open but it has to come out of a positive spirit. and not of just looking for the negative spots well you talk about innocence where does that come from in your opinion does it have anything to do with the fact that china has been communist for so long. and no no i think it has to do with the with the structure of having the community first and then the individual that meant you will always part of something you were part of a family part of a community part of a city part of
a province and the country and helping each other being together was part of survival and that's that's when they when you get to know the chinese and when they embrace or they are not ashamed of having the old we love you and we admire you when and it's so sweet that openness i'm not saying that every chinese are sweet there is a lot of competition there can be very very. fierce fighting but in general they are willing to embrace you and talk about their feelings so is china socialist or capitalist they are fighting for. making that dreams come true and the fight is something sometimes a little fierce because for a long time they couldn't make their dreams come true they couldn't lift their life they wanted and now specially for the generation that's one of the nineteen
nineties who has not today is through all the hard shift and the changes. they really demand that they can do whatever they want to do and that's going to be a new situation in china with a china ration that has grown up with communication systems with western. get information about everything that you can achieve in life and they're going to fight for achieving that they have goals they want to they want to be the best your husband john and i spit argues that china is a country without ideology do you agree with that it doesn't have any it's in search for an i be all that she and i would replace the word there's a lot of search for meaning because. when you are starving making an income that's enough you know you don't need any other goals but once you have your basic income once you make an economic dreams come true to
a certain degree. then you realize that's not everything in life and i have a column in china you stated the second largest newspaper and i get a lot of emails in reaction to the column and many of the questions are. you know what is really the sense of what's really the meaning of life what can i do miss my life and how can i serve my country that's something that you wouldn't hear from the rest so much you know how to serve my country it's much more how can i so how can the country serve me and that search for meaning for spirit fulfillment that that we can increasingly feel could be that they're searching for self identification in the twenty first century. as there are quite communists but now there are so strong economically they are searching for acknowledgement for
a position in the world they do not have enough self-confidence including the china as a as a country they have achieved so much but but they don't really care to look at themselves and say well what we did why is there a i don't know maybe because they are attacked. much more than then that knowledge and it's not that everything is great in china lots of things that we don't agree with that we need to be in but the west is very much focusing on the radios and on the flaws. and i think we should have a fallon's that. there is a lot of good things and of course they have to work on the not so things do you think china is striving to be number one country in the world to be this huge superpower or is it just happening. i i hesitate because deep
inside i think china wants to be the middle kingdom and once you have to pull session at it once head that's in the in the in the you know the history of china as really an empire is not the chinese head but they are not fighting to dominate the world but they they they want to play the role in the world that they are slowly growing into simply. kaname the growing size of the economy and by the number of people so i asked your husband whether china was trying to rebuild come an empire and be emergent to an imperialist state because if they're not fighting for it but they're fighting for it economically because they're building ties with weaker countries. could it be that they will be become an empire that dominates the world by growing economic ties with other
countries i don't know whether we're live in the world where you really really one nation can become a. dominant empire like the roman empire and and all the other and pious and fall of. i don't think it's in this way and also i think that there's quite a ways to go and you know america is a fourteen trillion economy. one zero one fourth of it so they have a ways to go and also you know think of the role that the u.s. plays culturally i mean the influence that this has in the culture of the globe is a much higher one and i think that's one of the things that china is really really has to establish what is its cultural identity in the twenty first century and when we have a chinese armani when they do not call peak. you
know the. when they have only people who stand for and then what they own. which let's say and i'm not very good on the pop bands but you know what i mean they they have to create the chinese brand the cultural leadership that still is in the hand of the u.s. in many ways but right now in china is about one third of the u.s. for in-depth and dollar is at a very vulnerable situation i mean people are even talking they could devalue their future. what is the smartest way out of this impasse for china i think you know economists are correlating or are having different opinions so i really would not claim that i have the answer to that so when the u.s. will hit rock bottom it will also have found a solid ground and then rise because it's not that the capacity of the u.s.
is gone the capacity is still there and the chinese are very smart to gap to the situation and invest with let's say we can in dollar or not so i think they they're going to work it out and they're smart enough to do so also one more question china is more and more a search. with the south china sea do you think china is a country that actually could envisage a conflict well it's a but but it wouldn't i mean it's too smart to you can't win wars anymore so why would china really start a war which would be destructive for china itself so while there's a lot of posturing on the political side economically you know it's it's much too much into play to really start a war on either side so you know there's posturing there's a lot of. posturing because of internal reasons to show strength to its people
but but you know we don't we don't think this thing china strategies for russia they've been very good friends and they've been not so good friends so i think they are seeking an alliance they are seeking but now they are very close neighbors so i think china in general wants to optimize relationships whether it's russia or america or europe doris nice big thank you very much for this and to make you. sure is that so much of it which of course you want to hear call it what you will the major political tipping point for woodstock with the music in respect to the occupy wall street demonstrations continued.

expecting much much more from dick advocaat side spatial corner is officially the world's joint worst showing age. under fifty thousand fans who turned out to watch them and didn't have to wait long for the first goal the challenge of lloyd lifting his second goal in as many games for the national side after only five minutes the hosts were a class above their opponents so he would double their li midway through the heart of a signature she would stop the slightest of touches to undo a shot in st cake with the russians one finished third only one ones by more than a single goal in this qualification campaign but they were determined to win that run against van doren the man probably change limited free on thirty minutes i should go if continued his rich vein of form the twenty one year old scoring a fine goal on the stroke of half time to take his tally to four for national the. unsurprisingly the hosts eased off in the second half however diesel should call
find time to score his first ever goal for his country to make the score five nil some sort of should you have been here do you know who is making a rare appearance countries have a ranking perhaps for goal of the night here it's on the field or picking the ball up for round twenty metres sounds good a well timed left foot sharks which gave the visitors keeper no chance jubilation to the russians and the danish school should call crowned this win with his first ever goal and he was happy to give the fans a performance to savor. and everyone is over the moon at the moment we played really well today and it's nice to give the fans something to cheer about a lot of supporters came out to cheer us on today and the coach said it was time we started scoring more goals for them russia had dominated every man should have played in this qualification campaign and igor some show of was delighted that his side managed to win for only the second time by more than one goal in their kill a foreign group. but it was nice to start finding the back of the net we've played
well throughout the group like when we drew here with garlands nil nil when we lost against slovakia but we weren't able to score look was on our side tonight. you've got to catch first campaign is england last minute russia managed to win a qualification region first time in a decade and now the hard work starts with the dutchman that's around eight months to prepare his shiny for the euro two thousand and twelve finals in poland and ukraine is a seven point lead r.t. moscow. well after his dick advocaat reveals the group be winners would now prepare for a friendly with the opponents to be confirmed on thursday however the dutchman criticize some clubs for being reluctant to let their players turn to the national signed. very happy. so hopefully the happy as well. about it because so we. we can play to find images next game in the well ready some protests from some owners so i don't understand that was the way they think because
i think they have to think about was low because it's very important so we are willing to think about gloves as well so we only play one one game and those who don't they are happy but for only be against his office he wanted to play much tougher opposition from the french you've been playing recently against the likes of iran caetano disrespect of em but the opposition we face if you're is going to much tougher say you know in prison we know. that already but we still get must get the go from asian to morrow so i cannot say all four of them but it's a nice no zero point zero meanwhile because tendency as russia seems to be secure for the foreseeable future as football chief said again has made it clear he wants to extend the dutchman's deal for another two years often european championships are over. it was. a drug card is a top level specialist he's a very consistent person magic and goal orientated person and to make it even
better he's a winner he's doing runs out in july next year but it has an option to be extended and i can't see any need to change that. serbia captain they have rich has announced his international retirement at the age of thirty three off to his country failed to qualify for the european finals while stalled to spend the money of it it looks ready to follow says the twenty nine year old munster united skipper has hinted he could also be calling it a day any time soon but it is taking full responsibility for missing what could have been a life saving second penalty this country. needed to win in slovenia to lead from a stadium in two seconds built in group c. on the stroke of off time conceded a cracking goal by god it this huge ridge so he will strike from the spot saved. qualifying hopes dashed. joining has to train
in poland in next year's finals all russia and france along with already qualified england denmark beat portugal too long to leap from their opponents and finish top of the group play each while sweden's three two win over the already three netherlands men they qualified as the best runners up greece booked their place after coming back to beat georgia to want already there were defending champions spain beat scotland three one to end their playoff hopes group a win is germany finished with a one hundred percent record by a decent belgian three one and group c. when is italy beating all the ninety three nil. so eight teams have gone into thursday's draw for the playoffs where they're divided into two parts of four seeded and four one seeded teams aren't in portugal are seeded to along with the czechs who won four one in lithuania and croatia viet sunil bosnia-herzegovina join already qualified montenegro in the unseeded group along with the city turkey as a bunch of understudy mia thanks to slovenia as well as the serbia the first legs
of the playoffs are on november the eleventh or twelfth the second leg on november the fifteenth. now russia's on the twenty one team maintain their one hundred percent record by beating portugal two one in moscow to extend their lead at the top of group six in the qualifiers for the twenty thirteen european championships in israel constantly reports. russia had started their qualifying campaign confidently with two wins on the road and a goal difference of plus eight in their third encounter the russians faced them a group six trial for to go on home team q just outside moscow and be syria's a man took control from the start in a first house a few scoring opportunities though well punished for a moment of slickness after half an hour wilson and two out of the phone himself virtually on marks and ledge of the box and hammered the ball through the wall and the flailing hands of the goalkeeper to get portugal at half time however whatever
they had coached said the hosts a tough time seemed to work as russia came out even more determined and everything swung the hosts way within just four second half minutes first by only a kind of cross to the four course where alex on the court in headed home the twenty year old forwards increasing his telling only play to an impressive five goals in three matches and then substitute in fellow deny moscow for the other smaller group will bust three defenders to beat the keeper at the knee of course to make it to one off to fifty four minutes and that's how it's finished the home side took a lean control in giving the borgias no chance to equalise mall i was a little bit surprised that there was no one in front of the goal when i take them over so i decided to shoot and i made the right decision. by the head coach simba should play our game in which solid defending the score and win the match and some doubt how it happened we conceded an awkward goal of islam is to come from behind
and deserved only in the middle go didn't have any scoring opportunities in the second half of. rush you know what to do you can find the way it's been treated like you should be. e.g. the name of every. ten is now a top seed rafael nadal was off to a quick start in his quest for his maiden shanghai masters title the spaniard making light work of lesser known compassionate guillermo garcia lopez well the world number two nidal received a volley into the second round often losing in the final in tokyo last week and as the unofficial key player was actually dominating best in the chinese hardcourt beating winners with apparent ease both from the baseline and at the nets in the dark sailing into the last sixteen with a six three six two victory. while the second seed andy murray beat in a doll in japan has yet to pick up his racquet after dignity to us and i withdrew due to a thought my injury and illness got a little closer into the third rant. while wilton semifinalists joe wilfried tsonga
has become the biggest name so far to form the fourth seed the frenchman falling out to japan's katie and she coolly well it was a tight battle and song did say a couple of match points with aces only to hit the backhand long and go crashing out in three sets but defeat then tsongas chances of qualifying for the a.t.p. tour finals in london next month. however there is safety through the spaniard battling past canada's milosz ray on edge in straight sets they only have a set point in the second set time break but he couldn't convert it. seven five seven six to ten in the sheer. terror next to that is from patrick juan carlos ferrero who dubs out yet another spaniards and underwood asco the former world number one had to battle right after conceding the opening set but he dominated from then on breaking his opponent six times to win three in just over two hours
four six six three six two this. the final school. and during the last sixteen is last week's winner in beijing thomas burdick the number six seed gaining the upper hand over fellow czech radek stepanek comprehensive six four six three victory for burdick who extended his winning streak in china to six matches give himself a big boost for the birth in the london finals. and also sport life in. the
