12:01 am
it is am in the russian capital watching r.t. on marina josh welcome to the program now a dramatic new turn in the case of the world's top whistleblower julian assange she is pleading for political asylum with the worse embassy in london after the u.k. super and courts gave the go ahead for his extradition to sweden to answer sex assault allegations assad has repeatedly claimed the case is politically motivated and being driven by washington as r.t. sarah ferguson explains. when he handed himself over he made a statement and in it he spoke about his home country that's australia ignoring the obligation to protect a citizen that's being persecuted politically he also talked of his investigation for political crimes in the us and he mentions a country where the death penalty is still in force it's very interesting that to
12:02 am
see some of the things that are possibly going to julian assange just heard when he decided to make this decision to claim asylum the ecuadorian embassy saying they're going to protect him while the department says mr saunders obligation mr sands will remain at the embassy under the protection of the ecuadorian government the decision to consider mr sanders application for protective asylum should in no way be interpreted as the government of ecuador interfering in the judicial process is avoiding the united kingdom sweden. well it's been a long legal wrangling eight months julian assange and his team have been fighting this cause at the end of last month to the u.k. supreme court upholding the extradition to sweden and he appealed against that and really no use running out to. his so i mean it's not totally unexpected i mean it certainly is surprising but as he said there wasn't much left open to him
12:03 am
remember that julian assange has never actually been charged he faces questioning in sweden over sexual assault allegations but a lot of mr paulson is on her legal team always very quick to point out the facts in the charges have been bought and of course. previously interview. the president on his own on t.v. and they seem to hit it off in that meeting in fact the president of ecuador saying welcome to the club of the persecuted. president. as you move to me the pleasure to meet you at least in this way and welcome to the club of the persecuted. thank you for. taking. think it is us now to. think you know. that's something we have to avoid every day. and we already know that the president of ecuador is
12:04 am
a big fan of wiki leaks and the wiki leaks release of the u.s. diplomatic cables it was hugely embarrassing for a large number of governments not least the u.s. government actually we know that wiki leaks has had a big fundraising difficulties they've had a lot of the fundraising of a nice close to them i mean it's very interesting having followed this case to see what julian assange is going through and of course as we said his claiming asylum at the ecuadorian embassy here in london just the latest twist in this unfolding drama so first reporting there clark stokley the artist and we're going to activists as asylum in ecuador is the best chance for assad to continue his work in making revelations about the u.s. we're not so worried about him going to sweden actually but that's just small business were more worried about is him getting extradited to the united states and it's being orchestrated by the department of justice and most of the mainstream
12:05 am
media doesn't seem to know about it because no one is allowed in and this is been going on simultaneously as bradley manning's trial i would say it's a fifty fifty chance either it does or doesn't i pulling for it sounds like this is a very good option so that julian can continue to do the great work he has been doing for journalism ecuador would be a very good choice i think the likelihood of an extradition from ecuador is a lot less than it would be from sweden or the u k. well it's like joy a son should have a plan b. if his request for asylum is turned down by a door in one of his shows aired here in r.t.s. on interview the president said the whistleblower will be received with open arms in the arab state. it is it is very nice to see. you know i have always been you really go for the job. really we.
12:06 am
wish you the best you know. if you never have some programs i. think you. can catch all of us on just previous programs on our website so just log onto a songe dot dot com now u.s. based human rights activist just learned radek says the songs will most of his songs will most likely escape persecution by his latest moves but i could do worse actually obligated to because it is a signatory of the universal declaration of human rights and as ecuador's president has said the leaks disclosures have actually been forced to them and ecuador has not been quiet about some of that does taste and being offended by the u.s. requests to set up military bases in ecuador for example he is
12:07 am
a class of one an individual person against whom our country has declared a worldwide manhunt. which is something you would think might be appropriate for someone like a phone like that rather than someone like a phone where there you are greer disagree with wiki leaks well as we've been saying it sounds controversial interview show airs right here on our team talking to pakistan opposition leader imran khan in the latest edition he says that it was only through wiki leaks that his country learned about corruption and leadership. related to. the wiki leaks made not just. the middle of the world but in. the with the little of these two faced politicians you know who was sucking up to the marriage in the same. private telling them how
12:08 am
they were. sucking up to them and. giving completely opposite state it was a really specially this one really this is this guy who was the. least this religious body. during the marriage and he said look if you backed me to become the prime minister i would have gone we do do. and he's considered the most anti american politician so he was it was a. it really exposed a lot of. awful shall we saw next hour here on r.t. of course we'll keep you up to date with the latest on killing assad and his surprise asylum request. there hasn't been anything yet on t.v. . it is to get the maximum political impact. for the source material is what helps keep journalism honest we.
12:09 am
we want to present. something else. there are unconfirmed reports from age of dad to convict the former president hosni mubarak is clinically dead after suffering a stroke the news comes as the nation awaits the results of a presidential runoff between an islamic candidate and the former prime minister in that opposed regime policy or isn't. we are hearing reports from the state media that he is committee did but these reports have been refuted by the ruling staff the ruling military which insists that he has not died but says that he is in a critical condition we're also hearing from his noises that he's in a coma and that he's suffering from water to the lungs the one factor that all sides do seem to agree on is that late on tuesday the former egyptian president did suffer a stroke but it's not clear whether that stroke happened before during or often he
12:10 am
was released from prison to a military hospital most egypt since all skeptical about this news most people here one verified confirmed reliable and solid information before the election i believe that the former egyptian president has indeed died thomas which is dimming we have seen in the last hour or so people slowly making their way back home although there are some die hard so no doubt they'll be having a sit in at least in the mixed day also before those official election results come on thursday the fundamental question though when asking just how people into their feel about the news that mubarak has died or otherwise is the question whether will not his death would make a difference to people here on the streets in the gentleman's who is actually known certainly for people he came out and called for him to step down from power last february mubarak for them is dead whether he is dead physically or not makes little difference he's dead in their hearts and in their minds and most egyptians though
12:11 am
cost skeptical about the news of his death and talking to people here into this way many say that they believe it's actually a ploy by the ruling generals to detract attention away from the fact that in recent days they have been making an attempt to grab power to detract attention away from the fact that they have issued this interim constitution the fact that they've essentially made themselves the law makers of egypt essentially what they say is that this is a ploy on their. side and that is why they don't believe it. now so let them view the program a bargain for progress iran is ready to trade for your property for the lifting of sanctions as to pave the way for a diplomatic scape from political stalemate. the booming breaks economies challenge america's long standing dominance over the international monetary fund as a group of twenty most industrialized nations believes in mexico. u.n.

statements from the opposition you as the head of the u.n. mission in syria was briefing the international community about the crisis taking place in the country media outlets many of them were reporting stories indicating that russia was sending or attempting to send attack helicopters to syria a claim that russia has denied there was another somewhat outrageous report about some legit military exercises that were scheduled to take place between russia syria china and iran now the reason i say outrageous is because when you listen to the numbers of this report claiming that ninety thousand soldiers would be participating one thousand tanks one hundred warships that sounds like a humongous exercise to take place between countries and of course to
12:14 am
include one country in the midst of his own conflict now the russian foreign ministry immediately denied this report saying it had no merit there were no facts to it and also russian officials say that those reports. being unleashed by many western media outlets are part of a false information campaign being spread about syria so it is more important than ever right now with this considering the state of the syrian crisis for the information that is being provided by media outlets to be factually supported so here we see that the international community is not just dealing with a an escalating conflict in syria there's also an escalating information war taking place outside of the country and most recently it is being aimed at russia by many western media outlets meanwhile former u.s.

presidential candidate senator john mccain has called for washington to bypass the u.n. and launch a military strike on syria come illiterati a contributing editor for the online magazine syria common says it's just part of a well established cycle there are too many players. trying to achieve something out of this crisis this is a very very complex crisis you know we. want to prove that it's it's forces in syria which are trying to topple the regime so this has been a cycle where that is you my vices and the way it is they gain because they would like to go in as a reserve states that's going to help them cope with that if you will almost so long as you have so many forces. excited about the world that is that in general it was just they were they were. going to get there through this information as usual through like they did before the attack or before. intervening in afghanistan in the late seventy's or so there was
12:16 am
a feeling some information. while the media war rages outside of syria inside it's a different story for over a year now certain news networks have found it all but impossible to answer the country news organizations which. political and media advisor to the syrian president says were a band on sparking confrontation from the start her full interviews coming your way in about fifteen minutes time but here's a preview. then. the channel. made themselves part of the war on syria and things like that in war. about what's happening in our country it can do a lot of damage to the media war because when you. fly thing and hatred among the thin people there are many people who fall victim. to do this. unfortunately the media would throughout history could be very damaging.

but effective. they're all fully cooperate with the international atomic energy agency for all sanctions placed on the country are lifted to iran's chief negotiator has offered a deal to the group of six world powers during their today talks in moscow trying to bridge the gap between the sides are losing confidence has more from the meeting . the e.u. foreign policy chief catherine ashton said that they have made some serious progress on certain issues but warns of that significant gaps remain in the two sides positions the next round of talks essentially is going to be a technical level meeting of nuclear experts that has been scheduled for july third in istanbul the arabian chief negotiator saeed jalili had a welcome to the technical level talks saying this is something that the iranians have been asking for all along he reiterated the arena and position that the right to enrich uranium is an inalienable right of the arabian people but he had also
12:18 am
hoped expressed some us some hope that sanctions against iran would be lifted of course there has not been any agreement on that we have to keep in mind that israel has threatened to attack iran over its nuclear plans if a diplomatic solution isn't found that is a serious threat that was reiterated by the israeli president to the media interview on monday but we also have pressure for the u.s. president probably by this progress to essentially abandon talks that again some progress it does look like this round of negotiations actually merited and at least a few inches of steps so not all hope is lost as of yet. even on a gross is the main goal for the g. twenty as world's top industrialized nations fear the fallout from greece could lead to global contagion and the summit we're up in mexico russian president vladimir putin spoke at a wide range of the world's problems financial to the fans issues he also said that

12:20 am
president putin had a very long meeting with president obama over to our worst who was behind closed doors but then the leaders came out with a joint statement they said both russia and the u.s. eventually share one goal and that is a peaceful syria where syrians get to decide their own future but russia and the u.s. have seem very differently on how to reach that goal and as president obama said this tuesday the differences are not go anywhere also president putin was asked about the controversial missile defense shield in europe he was asked about whether president obama's reelection would bring about a breakthrough on the issue and he said he believes the u.s. is going to carry on with the shield plans no matter what. the president is but would dress the coolie as he pointed out. the situation what would lift the tensions around the issue would be the u.s. russia and iran as equal partners in that building and managing the ship that's the
12:21 am
kind of partnership that russia has been putting forward for many years now the one . that is part you are not taking for adoption and i'll look at some other stories from around the world paris president ricardo martinez says he's withdrawing plans to sell off some state assets following protests in the country's capital students trade union groups and opposition politicians joined the demonstrations outside the national assembly protesters claim the plans include selling off stakes in utility and telecommunications companies to boost government spending in the run up to next year's elections the government denies the allegations. talks between three political parties in greece are expected to resume after negotiations to form a coalition broke out late tuesday night the conservative new democracy party is expected to lead the new government after falling one hundred fifty one seats short of being able to rule alone left wings furies of party finished in second bought have refused to join any coalition that falls in terms of the countries that are

national bailout. pakistan's ruling party says it accepts the dismissal of prime minister yousaf raza gilani following his conviction for contempt of court two months ago he was found guilty for refusing to reopen a corruption case against the country's president he refused to step down which led to protests calling for him to be banned from holding office president pak nationalist lobbying form. says the u.s. and u.k. have both had a hand in creating pakistan's problems with the united states and the united kingdom have had a very important investment in this government this government came into power this is a quotient government that came into power due to a secret. deal that was brokered back in the year two thousand and six in two thousand and seven which resulted in the incumbent president president coming into power this government basically came into power to promote because of certain
12:23 am
regional interests and mainly of birds because of the american interest in afghanistan this was one of the most corrupt governments and probably one of the most inept prime ministers that box and you have seen in modern history almost seventy years we're seeing huge. power outages the scarcity of water supplies against inflation and corruption i think the united kingdom the governments of united kingdom and the united states should really stand away from. this created actually they have had a hand in this mess and i think they should stay away. right turning to the world of business and joining katie now so we're looking this is the first look at the financial markets across the globe traders counting on wall street whispers they are indeed right now marina we're looking at. particularly for the markets that are indeed but as you say is those wall street as well that's all the speculation that

the federal was out all considering all the moves to stimulate the. on a may that's as they continue their two day meeting over in the u.s. says talk of the feds extending their operation twist program which is essentially just the selling of short term security as well born longer term ones as well but what i really means is it just keeps a lid on interest rate so that's one of the possibilities of moments of look at the asian markets will we ever see how they're responding at the moment and they are indeed on the rise just now over because of that speculation also i know you've been talking about it is marina we've got a group of twenty leaders meeting at the moment and they have pledged to support economic growth and help europe overcome is debt crisis talked about stock cervical sorry japan's biggest consumer electronics make is going around the ring but does that sound like bull rose more than a second ago toyota as well do rather well the motor company of the one percent after saying that they're going to open up production plants abroad so i mentioned
12:25 am
japan so exports rose ten percent in may that's the most in its seventeen months for the country now due to easing concerns over the slowdown of the global economy now shipments to china japan's top trading partner rose for the first time in eight months while deliveries to the u.s. jumped by over. the same time imports nine percent during the mob and that indicates that the domestic demand may be picking up as well so let's head over to wall street and see how they closed up yesterday we were looking at guys as those whispers in full force right there talking about stocks stateside we had bank of america climbing four point five percent and that's because the federal housing housing finance agency said that if it doesn't help banks the boy been forced to buy that mortgages make concerns the lenders all tightly their belts but even the most credit worthy of people who are off to save money to get on the property
