divided they stand disagreements between playing the bloc summit even before it starts with germany rejecting the idea of debt sharing brushing their hopes of crisis hit countries. is one mistake that we've committed we've put all our eggs in the american basket allies turning into enemies three out of four pakistanis now think of the us of their photo with anger growing over civilian deaths from americans drone attacks. and iran's exclusion from the upcoming international meeting on syria in geneva cast doubt over the impact of the gathering which aims to find a way to end the country's bloodshed what. russia markets kick off the traders session on the negative note as crude prices remain volatile all the details in the
business update in about twenty five minutes. it is eleven am and the russian gavel you're watching r t with me marina joshie welcome to the program deeply divided leaders are gearing up for a summit this thursday and this is german chancellor angela merkel insists there will be no debt sharing europe a stance that won't sit well with troubled states such as spain and italy and there's also no relief for greece where the country's most vulnerable suffering under a sterile artie's jacob graves now reports. dealing with the problems facing disabled greeks on a daily basis is all too familiar with the realities of euro zone back to the new government will be. the second bailout.
that means that you have to cut public. spending. within a month actually up to 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 sophie is now without state support stricken health care system left out on a road. thank you because i have money from my job but that other people cannot even get their medications. from welfare and since. i get medications. for help i mean. so if you don't get. this money you came to us there to be fewer state cutbacks often prove in the toughest of those who need the money the most cases
like the fees 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 newly formed 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 where the military remains 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 weapons contracts but even with no obvious conflicts looming it's an expenditure still defended this is because we're going. in the military we don't have so much hard work of. in the sort of structure of for example in the hospitals we have. that we don't have
in the military greece is not the country that comes through without unlike the army given the current plight of many greeks is 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. greece's latest round of political instability economic troubles are still very much under the spotlight greece. and while germany continues to call for more discipline among the debt ridden states the nation is unwilling to implement the same measures at home well that's according to british our p. they can afford 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 effectively guaranteeing the other countries in the euro zone's debts and the two sides to this deal is say on one side you're asking us to guarantee you a debt to these euro 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 weak tend to be southern european countries 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 that would cause so that's the big argument to germany saying there's no guarantee unless you also give us control of the budget and then say we're not going to give you control of options 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 off site so she is sort of saying one thing to others and they're not going to do the same thing myself. 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 was recently downgraded by moody's as max geyser and sees her would reveal later this hour the american giant would have been rated even lower without government support. there's coupling the jamie you know the congress. fellows the one. that you're not going to downgrade me more than two categories or i'm going to have to cut off all your jumping again and i'm going to have to make sure that your guest even get home today because i'm jamie up with a couple and you know this same kind of language you're wiretapping when you drop in on the mafia there's like so choky the dead fish go is saying that. that you could always get a bid rigging done in a certain period of time or is going to come over there to stream that you know it can be living much longer.
three and four pakistanis now consider the u.s. anatomy according to a new survey published and american ties between the two countries have recently hit new lows over the civilian casualties caused by ongoing u.s. drone attacks more than twenty people have been killed and militant attacks in pakistan over the past few days alone adding to the thousands of lives lost since the washington led war in afghanistan began eleven years ago or just got it she can takes 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 ridiculed 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 most 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 re sentiment towards the alliance with the us has fuelled domestic insurgency in pakistan pop some 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 the a spate of bombings in a cruel 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 for the lebanese 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 bidding in a. changed with the billions they'd sent them were given taxpayer money to this country which is not treating us right but we 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 genes 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 been before as well but but so to speak we made this mistake and we're trying to know 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 watch shouted 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 pakistani policy makers will 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 in afghanistan pakistan is a belt with an unprecedented insurgency in their own country terror which has
killed an awful lot of people much more than the losses 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 out another portion of factorizations and humiliation to the nation they once convinced to become their ally i'm going to stick our reporting from washington r.t. . u.s. war is also kind of a high prize for the american public art a special report focuses on the families whose loved ones died on foreign soil. excuse me can i speak with you sure. let me give you three by sunday night you don't agree you don't agree we're going to leave her room. is marina i don't know what distrust you're going to try before you share. your country. or hope. you find some of these.
things. while this extended report is coming your way at nine am g.m.t. iran will be briefed on the results of an international meeting on the syrian crisis despite not being invited according to the office of u.n. peace envoy kofi annan earlier the u.s. objected to iran's participation in the talks on saturday aimed at uniting influential states behind proposals for a syrian led political transition russia and the us are divided on the issue of iran's involvement with the two nations along with a number of western and arab countries due to attend the gathering but isn't the only issue the two nations disagree on washington wants a handover of power in syria that would see president assad go as moscow opposes the idea that other countries should dictate a political transition insisting it's
a decision for the syrian people but it will alastair marrs success taking sides in the conflict undermines the credibility of the mediation effort. 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 assad they should be excluded from any talks with that which is an absolutely absurd position to take because washington actually supports regime change so by that. country's own logic it should actually be excluded from any talks on 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 if it excludes iran and it is very unfortunate this this unfortunately kofi annan who also insists that iran should be
included has caved in to us will on this and has excluded iran from the upcoming event a u.n. panel of investigators has admitted it is unable to determine who was behind the whole massacre in may that left one hundred an aide to civilians including many women and children dead that's after most western states at the time laid the blame squarely on the government martensite from the globalist online magazine says he is not surprised the panel failed to reach a decision if conclusion. i think the report is so uncertain because the evidence it had to sift through was uncertain this was not a cotton dried case despite misleading reports in the western press that it was i think this is a classic case were both public pundits and even the spokesman of major governments need to learn to watch their language until they know for sure what the facts of a situation are and this was not done in this case people shot from the hip objectivity
requires caution it requires a restraint from pointing figures rushing to assign blame that is not responsible diplomacy it leads to very dangerous faceoffs between major powers it's a very responsible behavior now still ahead of the program thousand throw their support behind wiki leaks editor julian assange but the words and deceit in the u.k. and us receiving a lot of e-mails urging the nation to accept the world's most famous whistleblower . serve time in the military or serve time behind bars find out why the decision is so difficult for a community in israel all that much more coming your way in just a few minutes. soon
video on demand on keys in mind the world comes to an r.s.s. feeds now in the palm of your. question on the dot com. i pod or takes us time to decide to join us on his plea for political asylum there are 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 sands to the ecuadorian embassy in the u.k. and u.s. and a separate show of support thousands have signed a petition and no been initiated by u.s. based civil liberty group just foreign policy are to talk to robert naiman policy director for the organization who initiated the campaign. my sense sense of other people i've talked to that ecuadorian government officials are sympathetic to their request they understand situation the same way we do understand the threat to join
the songs from the united states and 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 investigate 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 if 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 documented fear that helsing izzo interview series here on r.t. and if you have missed any of the ten episodes that have already aired they are still available in
a special section of our website. dot com. i mean julian assange. it is true what you read where they expose the world secrets he's talking as long united states government being attacked by the united states strongly condemn this question because it legally shoot five hundred days now being detained without charge. hasn't stopped us. today we're on a quest for relief for your ideas that can change the world tomorrow. what you are to us now take a look at some other stories from around the world an out of control wildfire has destroyed dozens of homes and forced tens of thousands to evacuate a region in the u.s. state of colorado the flames reach parts of an air force academy destroying over a third of its property president barack obama is expected to tour the area on friday where heavy smoke can still be seen hovering over neighborhoods
a lightning strike sparked a wildfire several weeks ago. when elizabeth the second and former irish republican army commander martin mcguinness shook hands wednesday and a much anticipated encounter the gesture symbolized northern ireland's progress of peace after decades of violence the media wasn't allowed to witness their initial handshake inside a belfast theatre how the two shook hands a second time shortly after it's believed mcguinness was there i raced chief of staff when the group assassinated the queen's cousin nine hundred seventy nine. more than one hundred people are dead after landslides and logs wiped out parts of southern bangladesh heavy rains pounded the region for days with forecasters projecting more bad weather increasing the possibility of further destruction and officials claim to out of the fifty thousand people are still stranded in the disaster zone with public transportation entirely cut off you know a group of arabs who once proudly man israel's military are now refusing to join
the ranks of some. men are even choosing prison or worse national service artist both lawyer 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. i used to see them as march. and see them as victims and my brothers who were victims of the zionist movement and they died fighting their own people yemen's family belongs to israel's drew sect an offshoot of islam of about one hundred fifty thousand people their hour being culture and language but are loyal to the jewish state for years their 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
a tool to oppress so people the palestinians who want to take part in it anymore. spearheading the changing mood is this man whose two brothers and one uncle died serving in the i.d.f. outraged by many israeli government policies he works as a lawyer defending palestinian prisoners in israeli jails so the question is the answer we've druze are palestinians and israel can't change that we have always been and will always be palestinians means uncle silo was killed while working in the israeli border police in one thousand nine hundred ninety his brother florida fell on christmas eve thirteen years later then tragedy struck again when his older brother named after his fallen uncle was killed on mother's day by his bullets to a side bomber in lebanon has been there ever since he died i do not celebrate mother's day i do not accept gifts from my remaining children i can't bear it
seller was spoiled and beautiful after you. i said no one will go to the army ever again it had been solid choice to serve on the frontline if 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 now 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 family's paid many israeli jews 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.
three to the world of business now where marina is keeping track of what's going on there so what's making about is this our primary and all the european markets are open right now so basically we get to gauge the sense i'm in there especially ahead of the. brussels and of course e.u. leaders are expected to discuss firmer fiscal integration as well as the establishment of a banking union but the mood on the market is sort of mixed i would say because we have had investors reactions those already in asia as well as russia and we can see that they're cautious they're avoiding most making any major moves if we take a look at the latest numbers in europe if we're going to have the graphics there and we'll see that the footsie is going in just about similarly with the german dax and of course become more clear as the day goes on and depends of course on what move leaders will be announced moving on staying with the europe well as a fear of problems why it's enough now there's also troubles in its banking sector and that's because several banks are now under investigation for tried to
manipulate interest rates at which bad. alliance to each other this comes after barclays was fined four hundred fifty million dollars and that's after it's traders alongside to make the bank look more secure during the financial crisis and the problem isn't restricted because banks in asia and the us are being monitored as well. all right now let's continue with some other international markets with here and russia we can see the mood is pretty much pessimistic we have the r.t.s. dropping one four percent the meissen stopping point three of course this also has to do with group prices which remain volatile and i'll get to them in just a second but first a second look at the main movers on the my six hour way well we're showing oil right now although i can tell you that right now light is now trading above eighty dollars per barrel which is quite significant because a loss and fifth of all of its value since the beginning of the year and now want to have the grand blend which has been traded in the past couple of hours in
positive territory it has slipped back into negative and in general crude points the trading near a two month lows but if we can go back and take a look at the main movers on the my sex a lot so you a couple of stories if i can companies here we have a few which is setting over half a percent and what we know about the companies up the piece of russian venture is currently looking for a partner to boost its power generation business which is now become their long term priority the company itself as a willing to invest up to three billion dollars so it's looking for more and it's provide the rest also when it comes. over a quarter of a percent and we know that the company has put aside two and a half a billion dollars for its recently started buyback program and also plans to share it sell the shares on the hong kong stock exchange and later on now financials i didn't slightly better as you can see russia second biggest lender of u.t.d. is bucking the trend adding almost point three percent this hour all right let's move on if we may to use in the shares and see what's happening there there in the
last hour of trading we can see that the nikkei is still adding over one and a half percent but this hour the hang seng has slipped into negative territory but we do know is that throughout the day financials and energy shares were down particularly well and obviously investors there were tracking gains that they saw on the wall street but now with the euro opening and been slowing. the word maybe that's where that has most of us coming from when it comes to the states we can see the dow and the nasdaq at a point seven four percent and this has to do with the traders action that we saw on the wednesday and the often miss and there was a mainly related positive data about the housing index there as well as better than expected or orders for durable goods but if we move on and take a look at currencies when it comes to the ruble it's now gaining against both major currencies and the euro is still firmly gaining against the u.s. dollar all right that's all we have in this edition of business as always we have
the. markets why not come to. find out what's really happening to the global economy with max cons or for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune into kinds a report. on. more news today violence is once again flared up the film these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada.
