china to help arrayed in tensions over iran and north korea's nuclear activities hillary clinton's in beijing right now and said both the u.s. and china should work together to restrain pyongyang from further provocation and prevent iran from developing a nuclear weapon. clinton's visit comes at an extremely delicate time in their relations beijing accuses the u.s. of meddling in its internal affairs after the u.s. embassy briefly sheltered eight tiny's dissidents ect activists it's also irritated over washington's military buildup in the asia pacific in an apparent effort to contain china is growing regional cloud that's a con that holliman from the foreign policy in focus of think tank believes american policy towards china is very close to a cold war rhetorical. very bipolar kind of relationship because in many ways one of china's our number one trade partner. and they hold trillions of dollars
6:04 pm
in u.s. bonds we are all kind of locked into an international market so on one level the cooperation is kind of forced on us by the fact that we're so interested at the same time you get this. growing military tension and you chinese are also very uncomfortable about the fact that about eighty percent of their energy suppliers arrive by sea generally through the yellow sea so should the supplies are basically controlled those waters are controlled by the u.s. fifth fleet and the u.s. seventh fleet and that makes the chinese nervous i think neither side would actually like to move to a point where there might be a good control more because the problem is that you have this military buildup sometimes mistakes happen and in this world where we're talking about nuclear weapons except are the stakes. can be can be very major so this concerns me
6:05 pm
i want to be concerned about the arms buildup not just between china and the united states but other asian cowers as well and that kind of growing feel that this looks a lot like the cold war isn't making fifty's in the one nine hundred sixty s. with zero chance of trying to kind of enclosed in contain china as the united states trying to contain russia. still to come in the program area of all that's reaching through the ages the ancient city of aleppo largely untouched by the conflict that's tearing syria apart becomes the site of the latest bloody episode between the pro and anti assad sections. and moscow one of the it reserves the right to strike back if nato has planned a missile defense system in europe reaches its security that's still to come this hour. now two of egypt's leading presidential

6:07 pm
so that was it got the american melting pot case of i got really mad about the like the process was that it was this was bad it was until the rise of the country and it was a very right the freedom of expression. such convictions accosting a cloud a very artistic plans actions which the great and the goods of the arab media industry a quick to condemn after being banned the years until mubarak hardline parties like the muslim brotherhood and the newly created select this new policy have gained serious political clout having won the lion's share of seats in parliament and people here in egypt. has hope. to be in the. world which is what will that new egypt look like for groups like al know it means increasing. strict muslim curried have no problem with

. this system so we have our culture out of this our culture of content and out of it and. we live in egypt so i think the system. has to come from this culture and this culture means. many of these fishing for implementing shari'a law in egypt at least publicly that it could still be a long way off but there are already signs that change is taking place a lot of people who are currently governmental come to this for president are being very cautious about the statements that they make with the go to policy everyone is preaching moderate islamists but the same time there's an undercurrent like for instance we're going to change that. likely we're not going to make schools but we're going to preach religion better at schools no matter how subtle the differences may be at the moment egypt's eric sheikh restraints emerging it each
6:09 pm
and the results of what happens right now keep the ferals for generations. kyrie. research us so here we had from the car a center for human rights says there are a lot of similarities between the current unrest and that which egypt endured before the parliamentary election. there are serious doubts within the egyptian public. even before the clashes have started and currently as the elections might be pushed forward the same the same concerns have been voiced recently by political different from the two groups and parliamentarians who were there with even rumors seeing yesterday that has asked for it to postpone the elections due to the current unrest in front of the atmosphere. nonetheless in a press conference today have said that this is a do these are rumors and the elections will happen in july it's important to mention in this context that during the previously before the parliamentary
6:10 pm
elections last november a similar clashes have started in mohamed mahmoud and so it's particularly interesting if we are to compare how. that erupt immediately immediately before elections a couple of one zero a couple of weeks before elections. had online to argy dot com well right now we're literally bringing you the why does abuse cause this war to shocking shots real seekers in russia show the head for heights with these dizzying pictures posted online all the local police were too thrilled. plasterer hunting fox of the phone hacking scandal plaguing rupert murdoch's news corp sees high level calls for many of the american t.v. broadcasting license to be pulled.
6:11 pm
now rochelle was they could launch a preemptive strike against the nato led defense shield plan for europe if divisions between them over the project to reach a critical point the country's military chiefs have been voicing their concerns at an international conference on missile defense in moscow as an isa now explains the missile defense has been in a deadlock for some time now but certainly no secret between the u.s. russia and nato and once again russian officials today reiterated this time to get the bad deadlock needs to end or else russia is going to take response of action we heard the phrase preemptive strike this is pretty harsh rhetoric we're hearing from russia they're very serious about their their concerns their national security concerns being taken into consideration by nato and the u.s. we also heard from officials that if some kind of compromise isn't made that
6:12 pm
they're warning of in fact another arms race so very strong words coming from russia what they're hoping to come out of this two day summit is first of all to prove that these so-called rogue states like iran and south korea which the u.s. and nato say this missile defense system which is well underway in eastern europe in poland romania even as far as turkey that russia has research and is giving basically officials details on why they believe those two countries certainly don't have the missile capabilities to reach europe so a lot of questions surrounding the goals behind this defense system so close to russia's border and also showing a computer model of why exactly this missile system poses a threat to russia's national security in detail this is something moscow has been trying to convince the two of us through dialogue for years now washington continues to stress that the system is not against russia like i said that it's against iran and north korea but russia just isn't convinced oh let's not forget
6:13 pm
that hot mike that we heard in south korea where obama told medvedev hang in there . i'll be ready to compromise after the election and of course it's an election year in a lot of countries across the cold in twenty twelve years old certainly understand that so what we're going to hear most likely as this two day summit wraps up is baby steps we're ready for a dialogue but how far both sides are willing to compromise is still very unclear. nato says the missile shield poses no threat to russia because moscow's intercontinental ballistic missiles are too fast and too sophisticated for the plan system to intercept a paris based political analysts john laughland says it's not convincing enough but i find it pretty rich actually that the american should be saying this about their missile systems when they refuse to listen to the iranians who say that they're simply a civilian nuclear program poses no threat whatsoever to anybody earthrace are
6:14 pm
a matter of perception but also a reality and the fact is that as far as we know iran has no nuclear. weapons capability and doesn't plan one while the americans are planning a missile shield wish although it may not be they may be telling the truth when they say it's not directed against russia the fact is it's a new weapon system and it can be presumably directed against russia in a matter of seconds. spanish police have made a number of arrests that are approaches in barcelona where european central bank chief some meeting security precautions ahead of the talks have been heavily ramp it up spain even going so far as to reinstate checkpoints along its border with funds to try and limit the number of demonstrators arriving from within europe the fear was that a potentially massive protests could turn violent thousands of riot police were

deployed with reinforcements on standby the z.b. jeeves are resisting calls to begin by any spanish bonds as investors abandon the country's debt options instead of the urging patients over sturdy saying it means of work and time that as spain real from disasters unemployment levels and million strong austerity demonstrations business experts johan then a vet filled the editor in chief of trends magazine believes the cuts will only cause more problems. in the short term and even medium term results of these kinds of policies just as we have seen in greece is that the recession gets worse and that employment problems budget problems also get worse and they are absolutely not thinking in terms of larger budget deficits to stimulate the economy now what the european central bank and mr druggy are thinking of is much more in terms of liberalization which constraint. deregulation in
6:16 pm
a lot of markets that's the way they are thinking but of course the e.c.b. can not solve the structural problems which are characteristic of this monetary european monetary union. an apparent protest against president assad at syria's aleppo university met a bloody end today leaving four dead and two hundred arrested and very five video from the clashes showed troops and students together attacking the demonstrators or monash would be a senior columnist at the by a newspaper in neighboring lebanon much of the violence on arms proliferation let's look at the situation in a realistic way there are some many that are all around syrian cities major syrian cities there are gunmen you know and it's very difficult they're not very well organized so there are different groups of armed men on the streets and it's very difficult for the army the syrian official army to withdraw from the cities and
6:17 pm
leave the ground for the governments or that's also in making things more complicated what is required is that the government would actually back down and the syrian army would withdraw the tanks from the cities and that's very difficult to implement and there are weapons being smuggled into syria last week there was a shipment of weapons that were stopped by the lebanese army on the lebanese coast and there was a huge shipment of some some heavy some high caliber. weapons and this could create a lot of damage and i think that the countries surrounding syria should actually make put more pressure on on stopping the smuggling of weapons to syria because smuggling weapons to syria will only increase the violence and violence will lead to more violence and this is a vicious circle. erin mind of our breaking news twin deadly blasts are thought to have killed at least fifteen people and injured more than eighty near the capital of dagestan in russia north caucasus. police say
6:18 pm

6:19 pm
thank you very much for being with us today it's a pleasure sir thank you for everything to china has been a mystery for scholars throughout centuries why is it such a challenge for thinkers these days up till these days everything is revealed it's now it's a good challenge that we can show and still in charge well. you know first thousands of years there was such an insulated isolated place that others didn't come in and it's only been relatively in recent years that a lot of people tried to i myself have been going there for forty four years since
6:20 pm
nine hundred sixty seven. but that's new for westerners to spend so much time there were two did before but now they're all over the place although i think the west he reported is not very good about china but there are a lot of people there and my wife and i have been going there for the last ten years and but it is still kind of a mystery because because of their language it's because it's a country now with no ideology and suddenly said there david history was there. religion in china and i think that's true in a sense that that's the only thing that really holds everything together now and not the only thing but you know. they have that kind of reverence for their history which they know so well through through all of the dynasties and so on and which the west has always a zero information about and that's why it's a big mystery you know regardless all the credit with china does face a major problems like gender inequality income inequality corruption and by mental
6:21 pm
issues could that undermine the growth well you know all of these problems and these these are the problems of china are talked about and written about in papers and magazines and in speeches all over china all the time this is totally open china. that their biggest problem is their growing inequality the growing income gap between urban and rural. and the answer your question is no because it's so so openly talked about and we monitor it with our institute in change and we monitor all of the provinces in newspapers and all the provinces the two biggest issues that are in the pages and in the news pages are corruption and the environment and dealing dealing with both of those these are issues that are not hidden these are the most talked about face in china and the leadership the
6:22 pm
broad china in this for. leadership that you have to imagine can and can continue to deal with those problems and can. do a little better job as it goes along now let's talk and paralyse as china is slowly growing ties with weaker asia african countries the kind of the chinese to be entering into africa and to some other countries differs greatly from what the west or the west. it's giving it was it was a government to government you know who knows what happened to the money the chinese make a deal they say here's the deal we will build you an airport we will be jewish sports stadiums and so forth and you agree to sell us oil and energy we need at market price. and it's the africans many africans describe as a win win. range meant versus what the west has been doing with their aid programs
6:23 pm
all these years so china is absolutely connected to africa as well as as well as asia because of how smart they've been in the arrangements they have to to create win win situations for those countries say its economy only and not their will to evolve into it in currently a state building them part you know their china china it's never been. the acquisitional country to begin with but they're making their arrangements and their deals not to acquire anyone or to build an empire but to it's mostly on an economic basis to to to assure themselves of the resources that they need for the rapid growth they are experiencing and they are in our view will continue to experience so here's what all seven people think that with this economic and military prowess china is poised to become the center of
6:24 pm
a new type our world it's an elephant lot of polar world and by the way there they have been building their military but they're still you know the u.s. has a military that's equal to all the other dual terry's of the world put together and i've heard of we've heard a lot of talk about multiple polar world but last century it was the soviet union and us this tree to be very simple minded about this century is the u.s. and china that bipolar the. that world is going to be dominated by the bipolar connection of china and us and people will make countries will make decisions and calibrate their their actions against what they perceive will be the response of the us and or china the there will be a bipolar world replace it and they sold either to us but on a very different basis so knowledgeable are not oh yes a cold war but sort of
6:25 pm
a cold war with the soviet union on an ideological but basis with china economic thank you very much thank you very much. to a substantial degree and one form or another socialism has spread the shadow of human regimentation over most of the nations of europe and the shadow is an approaching a little different. in the early twenty first century
