to stay or not to stay that is the question facing greece says political instability catapulted towards an exit from the euro zone however the leaders of some of the world's most powerful economies have gathered for talks in the u.s. publicly declaring it should stay put that behind the smiles and handshakes analysts so concern and a desire to see greece go out he's innocent now has more. camp david was invaded by the europeans over the weekend or at least it seemed that way with almost all of the g eight talk touching the euro zone. there were new faces all focus was on a not so new an ever growing crisis and the million dollar question of could greece be corrupt loose and leave the euro zone practically every financial analyst thinks that greece will leave it has to be an orderly withdrawal from the euro anything else would be disaster the official mantra from a new don't want to fail with us to everything so the greeks are able to stay in
7:06 pm
the euro zone. to remain in the euro and that was once again the united stance of this camp david summit wrapped up but plan b. is already in place officials in brussels have a back up just in case and germany has been hinting a referendum on a euro exit could be greece if that's bad to believe the smiles and handshakes are just damage control i think this is just trying to predict but a pretty face on it is hoped in is over so when the markets open monday they can have some good news to report but the media are more concerned with whether or not a camp david but what was president putin says he's busy with his cabinet this weekend others think he's steamed over the street protests lots of speculation as to why people keep the gate but very little. president putin couldn't really contribute anything to a solution he could say right you have to solve your debt problem germany perhaps

should in fact extend more danger to other weak members of the european union and so on but basically he'd be a bystander not the case for obama who in an election year can't afford to let euro zone fall out worsen the u.s. economy. as a result on the way to the twenty nine obama. we'll sit down and talk a little bit you twenty focuses on a wider range of issues much more pressing to countries like russia and china who seek to have greater expectations from the broader format especially when it comes to financial turmoil and making sure all global issues make the cut reporting from the g. eight at camp david and he said no way. so soon none of the ones defending chorus calling for greece to stays now a mere chant but a marcus care that first so political economics have the believe institute of technology says that now even a greek exit won't be enough to save the euro. unconditional. euro savers
7:08 pm
as they are now prisoners of their own misjudgments of judgment turn out to be fatal because the crisis about the euro is on far more than just a currency it's about the future integration of europe and we have come to a point where we can no longer solve the euro crisis by simply urging or pushing or requesting greece to opt out and to leave the eurozone because the problems are far beyond that we could have so some two years ago when the crisis was a very beginning so the discussion is no longer about greece the discussion is no longer about whether germany is profiting or benefiting less or more from the you from the eurozone the question is how we can get the problem solved as quickly as possible without damaging the european integration process they aren't kingdom of bahrain is not off america's weapons expert blacklist with

a gun sales about to resume that's despite often bloody government crackdown on a popular uprising against the ruling want to kate and out he's going and she can suggest that it's in keeping with washington selective approach to just who deserves freedom. that was a meet bahrain's persistent crackdown on protesters journalists and human rights activists washington welcomes bahrain's crown prince and his back to the united states. and pledges to resume arms supplies to a key ally in the gulf. the us had suspended weapons sales to bahrain in the light of massive human rights violations by these sorties there but now the state department has issued a statement saying that american weapons will soon be heading to bahrain again. we've made this decision i want to emphasize on national security grounds we've made this decision mindful of the fact that there remain
7:10 pm
a number of serious unresolved human rights issues in bahrain which we expect the government of bahrain to address bahrain host the u.s. fifth fleet it's around forty ships two aircraft carriers sixteen thousand personnel a major force in the gulf region clyde prestowitz a top economist in the reagan and clinton administrations argues the u.s. has traded principles for military bases that are worth the ruling sunni. regime because of the base of the. in the gulf. and so yeah i mean i think we compromised ourselves in the same statement announcing the resumption of arms supplies to bahrain washington calls for the countries opposition to show restraint. we concerned by what has now become almost daily street violence and we are in this context bahrain's political opposition to call for an end to the violence against police that's
7:11 pm
a stark difference from the u.s. approach towards other countries in the region engulfed in anti-government protests where the u.s. has tacitly or openly encouraged violence against government forces in libya the united states was openly supporting it was open and openly supporting the libyan rebels and their attacks against the state even though this was. an art in the situation that now was the ruling proper board and look and then syria similarly there has been no and there were only four or restrain from by wants by the opposition forces there so it's a little bit r c there's no way in bahrain it's a highly asymmetrical about a situation it's not a case in which. in which there's enormous violence brought by the protesters against the police forces it's clearly by the bahraini state against the civilians the general perception is that the u.s. doesn't want to rock the boat in bahrain because of its fifth fleet there so it's

7:13 pm
to crush the revolution he allowed saudi forces to effectively occupy the country it's very interesting that the people about here in despite of this this small country has put up so much resistance and i think this itself shows the immense weakness that lies behind the saudi regime the fact that the united states supports the bahraini and saudi dictatorships also makes them responsible for the both the bloodshed as well as the current situation at large but more than a hard voice is counted in serbia nationalist honest love nicolette chairs winning the presidential election by a narrow margin over the pro e.u. counted boris tadic who's already served two terms in office now that's nicholas has just confirmed the country's to continue moving towards e.u. membership and political acts that marco gossage says that serves have chosen the lesser of two evils. i think the serbs have realized that e.u. membership is not a panacea not a cure all for all evils in the system and there are many evils in the system i
