9:01 am
five pm in moscow i met tries a good to have you with us here on r t our top story britain's prime minister says the eurozone must make up or break up david cameron tells business leaders the beleaguered single currency countries are at a crossroads demanding urgent action to avoid sparking global depression our correspondent in london laura smith has more. he used these words that the eurozone has to make up or break up essentially what he's saying is support greece or see the euro zone fail he's calling for years and states and institutions to step in and help greece to support those required me to not just greece spain and italy as well as i say these are stronger words than he's ever used before he explicitly said that germany must do more and he talked about the remorseless you know trick of the euro which is according to him a sort of rigid system that looks in any. ability in terms of
9:02 am
a country like it would normally do if it had that same currency it would be too busy to value it but inside the realms of the euro that's just not a possible option for them so cameron is saying the struggle states must be help help the weaker ones and he also said that the logic of a monetary union urges more political cooperation so that it takes electric responsibility from all the countries to help out the weaker ones that this sort of fiscal burden sharing that he's talking about and also a supportive monetary policy amongst all the countries in this people are very quick to say that of course the u.k. is not a member of the eurozone sorry no been a sense what business is cover and have particularly to criticize countries like germany and france when when the u.k.'s economy isn't necessarily involved but cameron's message today was that that he wants to see the euro zone succeed because it's in every country's financial interests to have strong economic neighbors but david cameron sees really his job but in all this to keep britain safe is he says
9:03 am
he says it's in the u.k. interest to have these stable neighbors david cameron's message really is that he doesn't want greece to drop out of the euro zone experts are now saying that if it does happen then it could cause ten years of global depression this sort of turmoil in the financial markets that will be got over quickly also of course he would be able to get the very you know it's the movement failing in europe is the same. so that he's pushing in britain and also trying to push the other european countries as well so it's a politically very difficult position for him to be and what we're seeing in greece at the moment is a new prime minister who's of course the kate's caretaker prime minister up until a new election can be held on the seventeenth of june and there are huge fear is that the greek people book ultimately you're staring government and if that happens it means that they won't have access to any more bailouts from euro zone countries we're seeing drooling from findings in greece and that's not just happening in
9:04 am
greece we're hearing reports that it's happening in space too and it could possibly spread to italy there's been the recent nationalization of one of spain's biggest banks banks here and reports that spanish people have also withdrawn a total of around a billion euros just in the past few days from those banks so the fear isn't that without the without greece the euro zone and collapse the fear is that greece is leaving would create a sort of house of cards in fact whereby everything else would fall down after that and of course this is against the backdrop of huge political differences between the main players in this new french president francois loans is very real starting in fact he's going to says he's going to increase spending in front doesn't seem like that's the tools we've got a lot of political wrangling from these major players who according to what david cameron said today are the only once you could potentially sort this out. greece is caretaker government's been sworn in after repeated coalition talks fell apart another election next month likely to decide whether or not greece stays or leaves
9:05 am
the euro economist alberto mcgarty says previous leaders failed to deliver real reforms to their people. the european health already have tried to push a stereotype in greece and like with a hammer but at the very same time he would was accomplished in greece in terms of the leader of men legalizing the legal market capping the size of government cutting thing was very late to do induced two weeks i think at this point it is highly probable that greece will exit the euro in the next few weeks and it may cause a domino effect you know the mediterranean counties or two girls being eventually to lead to europe is suffering a very strong lack of leadership in a lack of vision the quality you do all those in european countries know it's not very high and they really miss managed to crisis daily a few just to see the euro for when do you who was which is a monitor in a stead they wanted i mean basically you had to beat it george and of course to
9:06 am
where it's utopian unification now we have exactly where it be for a lot of us at this point if you look need to save itself you have needs to evolve into some kind of a transfer you you know i mean moving money from the pockets of reach europeans germans basically to the pockets of poor european football is that of course i'm in germany voters are not going to be allowed to. economic journalist i detest chakraborty admits that greece cutting itself loose from the year award p.z. at athens may yet be in for worse here some of what will care in an hour's time. he fifteen modeling what a greek exit from the euro zone would look like the best part of a year politically and economically politically even those who are in favor of quickly so. they would accept that it would involve beyond the streets the people that it would mean the bank through the courts because the a.t.m.
9:07 am
for not be working it would mean that people be stopped from even a country specially with this forms of euros in a backpack. because the company but then the top cop to come and to maintain a very high level move so it would feel like a country. the question really for the rest of the year is if the euro zone can say to the rest and to financial markets look greece is leaving but we want to greece is a special case you know behind hands with a bit of a bulky case and its problems and not the rest of the eurozone that's what they really mean by an old yanks that if they can convince everyone that greece is leaving because of greece not because of the euro i don't think the markets would but i. will stay with us here at r.t. still to come this hour giving up ofter going for the good life we why mexican

immigrants illegal immigrants choosing to leave the u.s. and what it could mean for the country's economy. but first syria's government is releasing names of alleged foreign terrorists it claims to have captured on its soil twenty said to be arabs who have confessed to working for al qaida the list also includes french and british citizens meanwhile washington denies being indirectly involved in smuggling arms to syrian rebels media sources that said the u.s. is coordinating support through qatar and saudi arabia rebels admit getting more weapons but have a leadership crisis to contend with the turkey base syrian national council been disavowed by the coordinate opposition coordination committees in syria the head of the s.n.c. says he's stepping down anti-war activists brian becker from the answer coalition says foreign powers are targeting damascus for regime change. sony arabia qatar they have their own interests in terms of reorganizing the middle east principally of weakening syria weakening iran changing the relationship of forces in lebanon
9:09 am
but behind qatar and saudi arabia and even turkey which has its own regional ambitions it is the united states is the nato countries the former colonizers of syria and the region who are committed to overthrowing the assad government and who i believe have crossed the rubicon now in terms of preparing for the all out intervention including military intervention by nato forces and remember turkey will be the gateway for nato as a nato power for the efforts by the west as they did in libya to use ultimately military power to overthrow a government and independent government that they want to replace with a proxy regime in this important region assad government was hoping against hope that some sort of. mission such as the observer mission with kofi annan might be enough to keep the dogs at bay but i think it's quite clear that when the united states and its allies saudi arabia qatar are pumping in huge quantities hundreds of millions of dollars of weapons right into the middle of damascus and other areas
9:10 am
their intention is not to have a negotiated settlement but an all out civil war or as a precursor as i said earlier to a nato intervention i think the united states is scripted it in a way that peace is impossible it says pieces demean but the united states and nato wanted to do because they're using have decided to use military force to overthrow this independent government and syria's president rounded on the un back peace plan for failing to stop civilian bloodshed more than a month into the cease fire of violence between both sides remains high in a rare television appearance president assad told russia's rossiya twenty four his country's fighting foreign mercenaries masking themselves as the free syrian army. it's not only with the fall in the west always tries to find puppets for it so syria has never backed down to that on any issue they've always done that's a new trying the same with this conflict the new e.u. sanctions a felt more by ordinary people in the economy when they talk of boycotting syria
9:11 am
they mean a boycott only by western nations kofi annan plan is not only aimed at stopping the violence it must also help people to return back to their homes where they were forced out by terrorists this plan has to stop the smuggling of weapons and the funding of terrorists it must put pressure and hold accountable other states openly claiming that they will support tension in syria if they only talk about violence coming from the government sign and not a word about terrorists head over to r.t. dot com any time if you are more on today's top stories and here's what else is a click away moscow police play got yet another opposition have angering protesters find out where the activists are headed to next. hour while could spoil a priceless wonder of the world babylon threatened by iraq and plans to extend a major pipeline get the details on our website.

9:22 am
a two year low down the russian markets are continuing to take a hit that's all because of the great crisis as just investors are taking their money out of risk yeah says got the figures on the screen for you right that is a snapshot of the movers and shakers and see who's really dropping behind at this hour here in a more sky as you can see the quotes by about eighty six percent down as we get some insight into the chaos in the russian markets i'm now joined by. head of international two thousand euro. well the russian markets are now fully behind their european peers with the extra pressure coming from. there are a number of reasons for that i mean the first and foremost russia is a so-called high above the market puzzle why sue no one thinks. russia here was and they think. that we're seeing a number of margin calls today and basically substantial selling coming from
9:23 am
western funds i think it's a global risk aversion but the effect of this is stronger i can talk about worst case scenario them was the possible floor to the market at the bottom level by. well for the moment which things are possible floyd is around one thousand two hundred for the r.t.s. index currently were one thousand three hundred something so perhaps like a ten percent but you know if greg's its so-called gregg's if they exist of greece from the european union the euro star euro is going to be counted badly then pickups we might see even further as a decline in the r.t.s. index it's very difficult to predict but for the moment which means that and there's a ten percent and that's roughly where boredom is going to be. chief justice and try to delegate thing that russia is among the most risky outfits in the market at the moment the analysis. will do compel you can compare apples and oranges right so ritually was in greek
9:24 am
universe russia has been one of the worst performing door with terms and pickups this on the performance would continue as long as people believe that we had santa of global cycle so cycle for commodity prices a whole price is going to come under pressure etc so but i wouldn't call russia's the most risky market in the root belief is a much riskier places globally i kind of go about you know you mentioned it yourself you said it's difficult to predict but what sort of impact would a grace even the hour have a mix of all cases. poor obviously very became packed again it all depends how it's handled he for european union manages to field fire wall around greece and for the moment the conviction it looks like. to you know essentially greece will be one of situation resin a domino effect affecting the rest of europe so if this scandal.
9:25 am
successfully then pickups will have a deep and then the market would rebounds in a worse case if a scandal badly and will have repercussions for the banking system in europe for spain and italy who are going to see through the deterioration of the russian situation and so you know ruble might come under pressure but yes might have for as a declines until russia unfortunately is very much linked to europe more than anything in this sense you know european nation unlike say brazil which i know india which is essentially more european players i'm going to suggest a private investigator right now so we both know that wasn't just what you suggest . oh no i wouldn't so right now i think you know the situation is turn predictable we might have a rebound shortly i think essentially you know there is a chance that you might lose in the sea. but you know it's still a win situation when it's too early to sell too early to boy so probably will still
9:26 am
sidelines do nothing for the time being watching the situation nothing depends on russia it all depends on the situation elsewhere first and foremost in your i came back. in two thousand many thanks indeed for me mosque i look at some more figures than in the markets to see how they perform i will have a look at europe and see that they are undoubtedly still to come on in this hour got the first three over a percent down on the debts around half a percent a losing that on the e.c.b. the european central bank has said that they're no longer going to lend me more money to help them out the put a lid on that right now let's go live to the current says and see how the euro dollar is performing then the traders favorite and see that it is indeed the coal mining we've got it down just a fraction i want twenty six m. tonight as you can see the ruble is really suffering against both of our prices the euro and the u.s. dollar. more important oil prices than which were really challenging the russian markets we've got a mixed picture that but the prices remain alive and i do believe that's what we've
