stalemate at the u.n. russia and china rebuffed the western backed draft resolution on syria but most case saying it's vague wording leaves the door open to of course military intervention. brought by a return to an arrest a dozen dead and thousands wounded in egypt as protesters attempt to loosen the military's bond grip on power. in russia hundreds of thousands gathered for rival rallies ahead of next month's presidential vote with massive pro and anti-government marches. but u.s. police clamp down on the occupy movement a tent city in central washington is the latest to be evicted after
1:01 am
a camping ground was brought in. to watching artie's weekly news you can on the very latest developments russia and china have given a firm no to the latest u.n. security council resolution on syria moscow has defended its move saying the draft failed to deliver a balanced approach to be unrest in papers extremist groups which could ignite even move on it's those who are behind the document are now ganging up against the veto states we're in a point no reports from new york. in a matter of just five minutes after the meeting began russia and china both wielded their veto powers not supporting this draft resolution that was written up by the arab league and european countries while the draft resolution was supported by thirteen members of the security council russia was asking for some amendments
1:02 am
according to russian funimation foreign minister sergei lavrov those amendments were not excessive and mr are a lot of said that russia was urging the west to accommodate moscow's concerns to reach a compromise on this draft resolution china said during the meeting that it supported russia's amendments and said for the council to approach a vote knowing that there was a divide it did not help maintain the unity or the authority of the security council russian foreign minister sergei lavrov said that moscow does not support using the security council as a tool to intervene on a sovereign country experiencing an internal conflict he believes that could create chaos in international affairs so as we see there was to veto this resolution it did not go through and it's because russia believes that as the draft resolution
1:03 am
was presented it had a lot of imbalances in it when it comes to the current circumstance in syria russian envoy to the united nations vitaly churkin did go into detail about those imbalances but why do you work in the security council has not yet reached its conclusion that you know that the draft resolution put to the vote does not adequately which led to the real situation in syria that consumed. the co-sponsors of the resolution of north sigmond wooding if there was that i'm not taking into account the syrian opposition they must distance itself from extremist groups committing violence. on states your ability to use their influence to prevent such . no we'll have taken into account that along with his joining the syrian forces from the cities should be a means to attack on state institutions. has the being support for affording more flexibility to get into media outlets states to increase the chances of
1:04 am
a successful political process with the russian delegation was forced to vote against this draft resolution seriously regret this outcome of a joint with. russia's foreign minister is scheduled to visit damascus on tuesday to meet with syrian president bashar al assad this is a move. to to hopefully reach some type of peaceful approach or solution to the conflict still waging in syria the arab league has also addressed the media at the security council at the stakeout saying that they are extremely disappointed. over today's outcome but they will continue trying to work with the security council with the united nations to try to reach some type of consensus now u.s. president barack obama did also issue a statement of his own before the meeting began that evening that you know the united states is on the side of the syrian people that are posing the syrian president and his government and he said quote the assad regime at the time has
1:05 am
come for the reason assad regime and to change clearly the united states is pushing for regime change this is a sticking point this is something that russia does not support so we'll see what takes place in the days and weeks to come but as of now the draft text proposed by the europeans by the arab league vetoed by russia and china why that talk more on this division at the u.n. security council we're joined now by professor of political science at the city university of hong kong joseph trying thank you for joining us here in a while in moscow in beijing is objections being ignored. well i guess foot china to support the sanctions you it has to be consulted in this case by the united states and the second condition of course is that development of regional organization support dissensions in this case the arab league just condition has been fulfilled and then a food condition one thing on the part of china you stepped up caught that compound
1:06 am
that country should not feel the term prefer that its core interests have not been tracked and alternatively china sees that the target redeem is a two step as opposed to how an obvious the these conditions do not fulfill and time it's not expected to support the sanctions and i think it is very good at that russia already to extend the end in this not be so country posing the western countries i think china doesn't want to abstain because just means to allow the sanctions to go through because china believes that it has not been consulted that russia and china china's suggestions five amendments have not been duly considered and b.'s two countries certainly believe that. that this.
1:07 am
is some kind of a some kind of compromise and reset and sit still be made at this stage because accusations are now raining down on beijing and moscow with some saying they're being complicit in the repression by the assad regime but could this backfire on china and russia eventually. this to me inmate of china and russia you know western world but i think. china and russia are also understands that they certainly do not want to see and not going to change in the region and they believe that high a number of countries in the region do not want to see a change at this stage now activists in syria though claim the recent violence in homs is the worst since anti-government protests began why would the syrian regime law such an offensive against civilians right ahead of the u.n. security council vote on the resolution. we really don't know
1:08 am
syria this certainly doesn't help i believe that the syrian the teen pop group really wants to demonstrate to the world especially to is supporters within syria and outside syria that it has no intention to compromise that it is still wants to hold onto power and full support this may not be wise but it seems soon arrestor know. what of course there are concerns that western countries and those behind the resolution are considering foreign intervention in syria do you think that could really happen. it's possible but i think china and russia with tried very hard to push. the western powers as well as the arab countries to allow the goal mediation dialogue and compromise
1:09 am
this is probably the preferred scenario of time in russia and hopefully. we will sensibly respond to this kind of request and nice. suit believe that this will allow get to buy time. ok professor of political science at the city university of hong kong as of today thank you for joining us thank you. well for later in the program we reported on another target of western pressure iran ready to close in the world markets saying it will respond with booming new orleans by cutting off supply before european countries have time to find alternatives. and tens of thousands of webcams will be installed all of russia's polling stations ahead of next month's presidential election not everyone believes their help sure transparency. a dozen dead and thousands injured the bloody

aftermath of three straight days of rioting in egypt though began after an outbreak of violence at a football match this week. in the knives of seventy four people a correspondent. it's an early morning here in the egyptian capital and that this time the few square that i hope you can see behind me may look calm and peaceful but these few last days have been absolutely chaotic and devastating. and also tragic as far as the egyptian authorities are reporting since a massacre when seventy four people died. at one of the city's. twelve of the people who have been killed in the balls that followed and twenty five hundred others have been injured it's worse to point out that since mass protests took first took to the streets of the capital cairo last january. people actually have you know the streets literally all the time protesting and
1:11 am
demonstrating against military rule. these poor incident this massacre has triggered new waves a new wave of clashes and ballance and people have been actually very quick to condemn this is to use the interior ministry over egypt over allowing this to happen in a fish and sea and actually sometimes. even instigating these fires in order to preserve this instability in all the two eventually just to follow the authoritarian ruling here in the country hard core football fans known as own choice that have always been. full front of the uprising against mubarak have come right after this happened for say it had come to the building of the interior ministry here in the central cairo just some blocks away from here calling for justice for the immediate transition of the power from the military to civil
1:12 am
institutions and for. actually presidential elections and since in the last four days the standoff between police and protesters has never actually stalled it's still continuing right. at this very moment actually we've been there it's a complete disaster i hope you can see the pictures right now it's a narrow street. street one of the streets that leads into the woods the building over the interior ministry the realm of people the chanting alatri anti military slogans from time to time police firing tear gas at protesters so it's complete disaster let's listen to what people there have been saying people are just protesting and it. becomes the biggest unbelievingly in fact people eat my time. each day children everything today in china that. might appear and.
1:13 am
that the chinese the seventy seven year old china it's over here it's more than enough what they're doing to the protesters are doing to the country and it must be so as you can see station is very tense it's very complicated here in cairo but there wars is that we can expect as collations even further. from the institute of arab and islamic studies at the university of exeter says egyptians are tired of waiting for countable leadership. supreme council of the armed forces . mismanaged the transitional process to a large degree the expectations on the egyptian street where rising it is that they will be. power from military to civilian elected civilian in six months and therefore once you have elected civilian rule the investments will come to life the economic life will be back to normal there will be a total restructuring of the security services that acted in
1:14 am
a very aggressive and brutal way corrupt way during the mubarak era and all these expectations to the economy the. better economy the dignity the freedom the bread the slogans of the revolution were not really accomplished by a year after the revolution that's why there is a protest last friday and on the anniversary of the revolution was wanted a president now an elected president now so that they can hold him accountable if you feel to be stored back the egyptian economy and if you fear to reform the security services here with r.t. well still to come on the program. there are very few people who would say as many horrible things about. shock spies are going. to talk to the father of the boys and. examine that and find out why he's withdrawn his accusations about russian sponsible for his son's death.
1:15 am
saturday was a day of demonstrations across russia hundreds of thousands gathered in moscow st petersburg and elsewhere to voice their political views ahead of next month's presidential election two rallies took place in the capital both calling for their election one was in opposition to that kind of the see the other pro-government gathering protesters to orange revolution supporters of ukraine martin the corn an expert on russia in the west of london says the only hope the opposition has of winning like a single candidate. result of the election of course we're very very important because what these demonstrators want is if you like a clean election an absence of fraud and so on and it's up to the authorities to ensure that there would be cameras there and so on and therefore it's probably will be a very clearly election but what is important is that it seemed to be fair and that these people have no cause to claim that the election on the fourth of march
1:16 am
whether president vladimir putin wins the first or are not that has to be seen to be fair and to be clean otherwise would be tremendous protest on the eleventh of march the opposition will not come together they don't want to compromise they don't want to arrive at a single candidate the only way they're going to defeat the will put in on the fourth of march just have a single candidate who is accepted by the whole opposition and there's no likelihood of this it looks already as if it cannot easily garner the congress candidate will come up second as he always does then the divisions of skin may cover up a third or fourth and so on to me hard prokhorov who bring up the rest because he is there really only to appeal to the middle class urban voters. or masses are already being taken to ensure transparency at next month's election one of them is an unprecedented plan to install webcams every voting station for direct internet
1:17 am
broadcast. reports not everyone is convinced it will be effective. inch after inch mile after mile big brother is preparing to cast his eyes on polling stations as the massive campaign to install web cameras is in full swing across the entire nation but a short on time is but i think if anything i asked the central electoral commission to install web cameras at all polling stations across the country so that everyone could watch online what's happening there twenty four hours a day. that only. the idea was put forward following the biggest protests in russia since the collapse of the u.s.s.r. with tens of thousands demanding fair elections so wiring up over ninety thousand polling stations is the scale and around a half of a billion us dollars is the price tag. coming into the system is not be made only for one day we hold this project want only develop.
