is am in the russian capital you're watching r t i'm marina josh welcome to the program how deeply divided even leaders are gearing up for a summit this thursday this is german chancellor angela merkel insisted there will be no doubt share in europe a stance a won't sit well with troubled states such as spain and italy meanwhile in greece the heart of the european crisis the pressure of astaire and he shows no sign of letting up and as he is jake agrees now reports it's the country's most vulnerable who are suffering the most. dealing with the problems facing disabled greeks on a daily basis and is all too familiar with the realities of euro zone back to stare or to the new government will be as you step on the bounds of the second. and. that means that you have. public. spending. within a month actually the further eleven point five years she points out it's been three

months since anyone has been paid five to disability benefits it's really difficult to have a health problem in greece today fighting a long term battle with multiple cirrhosis the fee is now without state support stricken health care system is left out on the road. like you because i have money from my job but that other people cannot even get their medications. from their family since. i get medications. for help i mean. so if you don't get. this money you came to posterity fewer state cutbacks often prove in the toughest of those who need the money the most cases like sophie's are by no means unique in modern day greece but one question is now being asked of the government is it down to a simple lack of state funds or are they misspending what little they do have
12:03 am
nearly full on the current government is largely made up of old factions new democracy and the past party made up the ruling coalition of the previous administration presiding over a period of cuts for the military remain somewhat shielded in two thousand and ten as debt ridden greece penned its first bailout deal signed away one billion euro to france and germany and one. that is contracts but even with no obvious conflicts looming is an expenditure still defended this is because we're. in the military we don't have so much clout as we have. in the social structure of for example in the hospitals we have. that we don't have in the military greece is not the country that becomes the without an active army
12:04 am
but given the current plight of many greeks it appears there's nothing left to axe from health care on the back of public pressure the new government is now seeking a reworking called the bailout conditions but once the sun may have set on greece's latest round of political instability is economic troubles still very much under the spotlight to hear greece see athens while germany continues to call for more discipline among the debt ridden states the nation is unwilling to implement the same measures at home so that's according to british amateur fort. we have another european summit where everybody seems to be disagreeing before they even get into the room. speaking to german colleagues speaking to for example finnish colleagues they're still enormously uncomfortable with the idea that they are effectively guaranteeing the other countries in the euro zone's debts and the two sides to this deal they say on one side you're asking us to guarantee your debts to these euro
12:05 am
bonds on the other side if we're going to do that we want to have control of how you spend your money we want to have control of your national budgets and so then the the week tending to be southern european countries is saying no we're not going to give up that lack of sovereignty we're not going to give you control of our own national spending huge democratic deficit that would cost so that's the big argument to germany saying there's no guarantee unless you also give us control of the budget and them say we're not going to give you control of our budgets and interestingly just last week i'm in a fight where germany has decided they don't want to disclose the size of some of their debts either. she is sort of saying one thing to others and they're not favored to do the same thing herself. and on the other side of the atlantic the five biggest u.s. banks are drawing up contingency plans in case they fail one of them is j.p. morgan which among other financial institutions were recently downgraded by moody's

and as max kaiser and state her would reveal later today the american giant would have been great at even the lower without government support. there's cufflink the jamie you know the congress there's a good fellow. almost. that you're not going to downgrade me more than to do get out of gurus or i'm going to have to cut off all your junk to go and then i'm going to have to make sure that your guest even get home today because i'm jamie up with a gumbo and you know there's still the same kind of language you're wiretapping when you drop in on the mafia there's like so jokey the dead fish go is saying that you assume that you can always get a bid rigging done in a certain period of time or is going to come over there to stream the general could be living much longer. than three four pakistanis now consider in the us an anime according to

a new survey published in america ties between the two countries have hit new lows in the past few years over the civilian casualties caused by and going u.s. drone attacks thousands of pakistanis have lost their lives of bombings and militant attacks since the washington led war in afghanistan began eleven years ago argues that she can take a closer look at a complicated alliance. it's not only u.s. bombs that fly in pakistan but also the stream of demands and accusations from washington there are several things that where asking the pakistanis to do more and better number one they've got to do more about the safe havens inside their own country even ridicule the u.s. defense secretary has laughed at pakistan for being in the dark on the bin laden raid the. literal in washington's rhetoric now suggest that during the decade of war in

afghanistan pakistan had been there milf instrumental ally in the region the united states could not have had secured afghanistan in three weeks with minimum cost in terms of money and in terms of in terms of the lives of its soldiers that would not have been possible without fox and the assistance and help three sentiment towards the alliance with the us has fueled domestic insurgency in pakistan hoxton has lost about somewhere between five thousand to six thousand soldiers and paramilitary soldiers but more than that we've lost more than thirty five thousand civilians and these people died because of these bait of bombings in a crude comparison the us has lost two thousand troops in afghanistan they want the pakistanis to do our dirty work for us and the pakistanis have simply said we've supported you forward eleven years we can't do it anymore you're killing our

stability they have to stop the civil war in the country they have to stop the war that's going on on their own territory because of their help for the united states so they have a number of problems which i think amount to a mass and they're going to be left high and dry when we leave many washington see a different picture of a country that does not fully do their. in exchange for the billions they'd sent them were given taxpayer money to this country which is not treating us right but we've made a mistake we were we have trusted pakistan way too long the pakistanis see another mistake there's one mistake that we've committed we've put all our eggs in the american basket and part of the deterioration in our job is strategic position over the past decade since two thousand and one is because of this fact that we completely relied on the americans and it's not the first time they've distributed before as well but but so to speak we made this mistake and we're trying to know
12:10 am
correct that mistake pakistan is now working hard on its regional alliances primarily with china but the u.s. still needs pakistan washington has been able to continue drone strikes in pakistan likely because of its military leaders tacit agreement the u.s. also needs the short route through pakistan to supply the troops in afghanistan islam was shutting down last year in response to the killing of two dozen pakistani soldiers but with elections approaching their end with people furious at the u.s. there is little chance for pakistani policy makers who want to be seen as being more accommodating to the united states the mockery and condescending remarks from washington make those chances even slimmer during the last decade of war and have got is that pakistanis have dealt with an unprecedented insurgency in their own country terror which has killed an awful lot of people much more than the loss is carried by the u.s. in afghanistan and that to a large extent was the price pakistan paid for its alliance with the u.s. but these days in washington it seems hardly anyone keeps that in mind when handing

12:14 am
a decision of for the syrian people political analyst sarah maher's success taking sides in the conflict undermines the credibility of the mediation efforts because. iran has not been invited because of the firm u.s. position that iran be excluded from any talks when it comes to syria the secretary of state made it very clear that basically because iran supports us they should be excluded from any talks with that which is not absolutely absurd position to take because washington actually supports regime change so by that you know the country is on logic it should actually be excluded from any talks with the situation in syria so really this is washington's heavy hand coming down again on international affairs and particularly in this region and you know as russia has stated this conference coming together really well not much impact it excludes iran and it is very unfortunate this this unfortunately kofi annan who also like you said insists that iran should be included has caved in to us will on this and has excluded iran

12:16 am
a restraint from pointing figures rushing to assign blame that is not responsible diplomacy it leads to very dangerous say source between major parties it's very responsible behavior. while i quit or it takes us time to decide on julian assange just plea for political asylum there are there are a growing number of calls for the latin american country to say yes more than ten thousand e-mails of support for the whistleblower have been sand to the dorrian amnesties in the u.k. and us in a separate show of support thousands have signed a petition and move initiated by us based civil liberty group just foreign policy are to talk to robert naiman policy the rector for the organization who initiated the campaign. my sense sense of other people i've talked to is that ecuadorian government officials are sympathetic to their request they understand the situation the same way we do understand the threat to join the songs from the united states

with the threat that sweden once they got custody of assad would hand them over to the united states which would then prosecute him under the very controversial espionage act we don't know everything about what the u.s. government has done a night or might do but we know that a grand jury was impaneled in the united states to investigation of wiki leaks and bring charges we know that bradley manning's attorney believes his harsh treatment in u.s. custody was an attempt to get him to. testify against julian assange there is a recently that they have the opportunity to try to get him and the u.s. custody they will do so this is totally rational the document that fear. and julian assange just hosting is a one interview series here on our team and if you missed any of the ten episodes that have already aired they are still available in a special section of our website. i'm julian assange.

their ranks some of them and are even choosing prison over national service are just policy or explains. a family united in grief but divided in loyalties the tears mixed with feelings of aggression and loss and the perpetual question did their loved ones die serving the enemy the server i used to see them as marchers and see them as victims but my brothers who are victims of the zionist movement and these aren't fighting the room people yemen's family belongs to israel's two sicked and offshoot of islam of about one hundred fifty thousand people there ever been culture and language but our loyal to the jewish state for years this son served proudly in elite israeli units first as volunteers and for the last fifty years as conscripts and although it was the jews who asked to be drafted today a growing number of the youngsters choose prison over army service. we're used as
12:21 am
a tool to oppress so people the palestinians who won't take part in it anymore. spearheading the changing need is this man whose two brothers and one uncle died serving in the idea of outrage by many israeli government policies he works as a lawyer defending palestinian prisoners in israeli jails so the question of the ins and look what we've are palestinians and israel can stay. we have always been and will always be palestinian which means uncle silo was killed while working in these radio border police in one thousand nine hundred ninety his brother florida fell on christmas eve thirteen years later and then tragedy struck again when he's older brother named after his fallen uncle was killed on mother's day by his ballista a side bomber in lebanon. you know vs he died i do not celebrate mother's day i do not accept gifts from my remaining children i can bear it so it was spoiled and
12:22 am
beautiful after he was killed i said no one will go to the army ever again it had been son his choice to serve on the front line is the commander of a combat unit he wanted to play his part fighting for his country but it's that same country that now his brother is making sure no one from the family puts on a uniform to defend ever again. if he were here and i'm sure they would have reached the same conclusion i have i'm sure that they are proud of me but pride is a feeling lost in the anguish that stalks these walls the shadow of death a reminder of the all too high price this families paid many israeli do is complain they treated as second class citizens because while it's true they do enjoy some benefits because of the army service like palestinians in israel they suffer inequalities in municipal budgets education and employment policy r t tel of of. the time now they are the latest from our business desk i worry that
12:23 am
housing writing session going well that's right is that it is going quite well of course asia is the only one trader right now so we'll start by looking at the numbers there and basically investors are picking up on the positive sentiment that was left over on wall street overnight if we take a look at the latest numbers and figures we'll see that both the nikkei and the hang seng are out and when it comes to the nikkei it's added over one percent this hour as adding a quarter of a percent and investors are at. pause the data coming out of from the e.u. was also we'll be following the developments of a crucial summit that will kick off today in brussels later in the day and this is not a great time for europe we've had the recent downgrades by moody's investor services then statement of the spanish foreign calls going higher as well as italian laws then of course spain asking for a bailout and sign for join in becoming the fifty euro zone country to do that so it's not looking great thought it is an optimistic sentiment today we have
12:24 am
financials and energy firms among the top gainers and if we can yen is given some extra boost through all right let's move on and take a look at some other international markets i said wall street had a strong performance that was sort of all down in the nasdaq at a point seven four percent opposed to the housing data that came out from the u.s. also we had good news on durable goods orders this provided much needed boost well let's move on and take a look at currencies and see what's happening with the euro dollar and ruble of course the euro is again in against the u.s. dollar it's now at one twenty five seventeen when it comes to the ruble it lost against both major currencies of course the central bank is still trying to strengthen the ruble there but the close of figures from whence this trading session will give you more when the russian markets open which is two hours from now if we take a look at what happened there on wednesday both the r.t.s. and m i six the r.t.s. out at almost one and a half percent rise to my six. hundred one and
12:25 am
a half percent in the black there as you can see of course crude prices held because there have been a strong go take a look at oil prices will see that it's not all that easy because even though there are again we see light sweet is trading at eighty dollars and fifty six cents the broader blend is now at ninety three dollars and sixty nine cents but there is still hovering near eighteen month lows in fact they lost twenty five percent of their value without light sweet itself on the fifth of value its. so it's not looking that great and of course this always has a major impact on the russian economy so russian investors will be definitely monitor of what is happening there but of course the main event today is the e.u. summit where leaders are expected to discuss firmer. as well as the establishment of a banking union and as soon as they saw i will of course be bringing you all the latest from that and we'll be watching how investors in europe in particular will be reacting to that ok so we'll be keeping our eyes on many fronts today thanks very much indeed for the cost of this is. and coming your way they had
