a very warm welcome to you from all of us here in moscow. turkey is moving troops to the syrian border this as a security measure that comes after syria brought down one of its warplanes just last week is likely to heighten tension as foreign powers prepare to meet in geneva on saturday for talks they're aiming to unite influential states behind proposals for a syrian led political solution to the ongoing crisis that. peter good to see you as we all know there are serious differences between the parties at the upcoming talks about how the crisis should be solved tell us more about that. well rory those differences really boil down to what involvement iran should have
6:02 am
if any countries like the united states in great britain say that iran shouldn't be involved what we heard from said again today who reiterated russia's stance on this which is that iran isn't just a neighbor to syria that tehran exerts a certain amount of influence over damascus and that iran is a major player in that region and in that role they should have a say and what's decided about the future of that part of the world. look at that inner city school we're now talking about stopping bloodshed in syria iran is certainly an influential player in the situation alongside other nations in the region and not inviting to run on board the geneva talks on syria is a mistake. but there are already some experts are saying that the expulsion of iran really can't say a doubt over how successful least talks can be. or indeed any peters many analysts have been saying now the fact that iran has been sidelined for
6:03 am
this geneva syria summit it certainly does post a major problems considering the regional influence that iran can have there to tell us about the end game here peter are there any on any plans at this point for how how the participants think they can bring to an end the syrian conflict. was critical of comments that have come from western diplomats who said russia is on side with the formation of a a unity government in syria now that would involve members of the opposition also some members of the current government as long as it was no one who would undermine the credibility of that government nosegay lavrov has said he's dismissed this out of hand saying that russia hasn't made any decisions yet that they're waiting to see what comes from talks over the weekend before they make any decisions on where the future lies to syria. q there are no agreed projects on syria so far i think the reports of a potential documents that have come up in the media or
6:04 am
a negligent approach to diplomacy through experience. also differences between the way the united states and russia view the future the future decisions of who should lead syria washington saying that condemning assad is a criminal and saying that he should have no further role to play in the country where is russia says knots not a decision for any other nation to make only the people of syria should decide the future of their country turning his attention to the media. said that reports must be truthful and must avoid a simplistic approach the the saying of slogans that condemn assad as a criminal outs out of hand. and call for his immediate overthrow now. warning that that could send a dangerous message to people on the ground in syria and a false message is in his words warning that it's not just the syrian government
6:05 am
that is involved in violence in the country the opposition groups as well as may well the many opposition groups they have also be responsible for violent acts during the crisis in the country. all of our life in central moscow thank you no problem. rather shocking footage purported to be from the aftermath of the alleged massacre in syria correspondent in damascus and maria financial has more on this it's fair to warn you you may find some of the following images disturbing. pullout t.v. has managed to obtain video allegedly showing the result of a brutal massacre in the syrian city of hama that happened here in april where families claiming that their relatives were slaughtered by the rebels the victims' bodies show evidence of severe trauma bullet wounds and burns at the beginning of the video we can see three children they are in tears and the all the girl demands to be allowed to see her mother in hospital meanwhile just recently
6:06 am
a un panel of investigators had admitted it is a naval to determine who was behind the houla massacre that happened here in syria in may claim to one hundred eight lives of civilian people including many women and children that's after most of western countries have been very quick to blame assad government for this bloodshed the glutens of the u.n. reports have added to growing conjecture as to who is responsible for the increasing violence here in syria. reporting there we'll have more details on the other go sions of a massacre by rebels in hama just log on to our website it's there for you twenty four hours a day at our so you taught home. now three in four pakistanis are now considering the u.s. as an enemy this according to a new survey published in america 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 in militant attacks in
6:07 am
pakistan over the past few days alone adding to the thousands of lives lost since the washington lowed war in afghanistan began and now eleven years ago. takes a closer look at a rather complicated alliance. it's not only u.s. bombs that fly in pakistan but also the stream of demands an accusation 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. literally 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 security gone in stone in three weeks with minimum
6:08 am
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 free sentiment towards the alliance with the us has domestic insurgency in pakistan 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 these bombings in a crude comparison the u.s. 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
6:09 am
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 big. in exchange for 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 away to all 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 arjen 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 dished it be 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
6:10 am
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 law 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 the pakistani policymakers 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 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 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 affect his ations and humiliation to the nation they once convinced to become their ally i'm going to check out reporting from washington
6:11 am
marty it's good to have you with us here today still ahead for you this hour thousands throwing their support behind wiki leaks julian assange with ecuador's embassy in the u.k. and you. the world's most. difficult. coming your way.

6:13 am
and. greece where the country's most vulnerable suffering under austerity this report. dealing with the problems facing. disabled greeks on a daily basis is all too familiar with the realities of euro zone back to stare to the new government will there be as you step on the bounds of the second bailout. that means that you have car 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 is now without state support stricken
6:14 am
health care system is left out on the road. i want to because i have money from my job but that other people cannot even get their medications. from their families in this. good medications. for help. 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 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 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
6:15 am
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 were moved early in the military we don't have so much as work of. the sort of for example in the hospitals we have. that we don't have in the me greece is not the can't believe that the without an active army 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 was the sun may have set on greece's latest round of political instability its economic troubles are still very much
6:16 am
under the spotlight to hear greece r.t. athens. but while germany continues to call for more discipline among the debt ridden states the nation itself isn't particularly willing to implement the same measures at home that's according to british m.e.p. vicki ford. 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 there's two sides to this deal they say on one side you're asking us to guarantee your debts 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 we tend to be southern european countries is saying no we're not going to give up that lack of sovereignty we're not going to
6:17 am
give you control of our own national spending and 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 you say we're not going to give you control of our budget 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 debts. she is sort of saying one thing two of those and they're not being prepared to do the same thing herself. and on the other side of the atlantic the five biggest u.s. buying so drawing up contingency plans in case they fail and one of them is j.p. morgan which among other financial institutions was recently downgraded by moody's . max kaiser in states you have revealed later today the american giant would have been rated even lower with our bout of government support. there's coupling jamie you know the congress is like we're looking fellers. in the one i'm assuming
6:18 am
that you're not going to downgrade me more than two categories or i'm going to have to call it off or you're just going against and i'm going to have to make sure that you all get good gas to even get home today because i'm jamie cap with a couple 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 chuckie the dead fish bongo is saying that years assumes that you can always get a big reading done in a certain period of time or is going to come over there is to that you know going to be living much longer. it's only twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow just a second the world update for now though while ecuador takes its time to decide on julian assange and 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
6:19 am
for the whistleblower have been sent to the ecuadorian embassy zone both the u.k. and u.s. i mean i mean a separate show of support thousands have signed a petition a move initiated by a u.s. based support liberty group just foreign policy r.t. spoke to robert naiman our policy director for the organization who initiated this campaign. my sense sense of other people i've talked to 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 and the threat that sweden once they got to be a massage 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
6:20 am
in u.s. custody was an attempt to get him to. testify against julian there is a recently that they have the opportunity to try to get him and u.s. custody they will do so this is totally rational the document that fear and difficult of course are joining us continuing to host his own and if you're serious here on. any of the ten episodes that have already ed they are still available in a special section of our website that's songe dot seen dot com. it is true we've exposed the secrets he's. been attacked by the united states strongly condemn. illegally. hundred days being detained without charge. doesn't stop the.

friday where heavy smoke can still be seen hovering over neighborhoods it's believed a lightning strike was behind the wildfire that began several weeks ago. but the religious minority who once proudly manned israel's military are now refusing to join the ranks some of the men are even choosing prison over national service. a family united in grief but divided in loyalties the tears mixed with feelings of regret and loss and the perpetual question did their loved ones die serving the enemy. i used to see them as marchers i see them as victims my brothers were victims of the zionist movement and they died fighting their own people yemen's family belongs to israel's drewe sect an offshoot of islam of about one hundred fifty thousand people there arab in culture and language but

are 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 druze who asked to be drafted today a growing number of the youngsters choose prison over army service. yes we're used as a tool to oppress so people the palestinians who won't take part in it anymore. spearheading the changing mood 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. we've had 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
6:24 am
eve thirteen years later and then tragedy struck again when his older brother named after his fallen uncle was killed on mother's day by his ability to a side bomber in lebanon. as you know ever since he died i do not celebrate mother's day i do not accept gifts from where remaining children can bear it seller was spoiled and beautiful after he was killed i said no one will go to the army ever again it had been solid choice to serve on the frontline as 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 no 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 wards the shadow of death a reminder of the all too high price of this families paid many israeli do is
6:25 am
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 tell of of. our top of the hourly updates from the business section that we're in a good to see you today. i do understand russian investors the good news to react to however the markets are dropping once over with us because we have that east summit that's coming up and there's a lot of faith remaining in the e.u. leaders think an adequate measures that will stem the crisis from spiraling out of control and basically this is what we see reflected in also crude prices but i get so that a little bit later first let's start with the europe and see what the numbers there are saying naturally financial markets are not reacting very well the european ones wouldn't be either and as you can see both the policy and the facts are setting up a one point seven five the german dax is heading towards its two percent in nevada now but it's all just why that was because of the e.u.
6:26 am
summit but stay with the euro zone is a few of us that problems words the problems with the banking sector as well as because some of the banks are currently under investigation and that's for trying to manipulate interest rates at which banks lend to each other and this comes after barclays was fined four hundred fifty million dollars after its traders laws to make the bag look more secure during the financial crisis and the problem isn't restricted to europe alone because banks in asia and the u.s. are being monitored now as well. and i want to come see the russian markets we see as i mentioned earlier they are dropping yes and the wise it's losing over one almost and a half percent you could say and of course that's mainly due to crude prices as well now it's the current to the stock market does have a look at the individual stock movements on the my sex actually it's a sea of red we have to drop in about half a percent we know that russia. is spiraling it's trying to find another partner for
