12:31 am
two months ahead of the u.s. presidential election we hear from critics who question whether they have any genuine allies. let's pivot to the east asia pacific nations look for ways to energize economic recovery at a major summit in russia as the u.s. and european economies blonder. russia's budding partnership with china among the other as you space in the country at the moment i touched upon in our exclusive interview with the president of lead me to putin which is coming up right now here are not stay tuned for that. hello are you watching r t with me kevin know him a very pleased to say today that we're joined by the president of the russian federation of let him approaching mr president thank you very much for making the time to talk to us but i want to talk about first of all is the ongoing at the moment apec summit now although a pick is primarily an economic vessel there's
12:32 am
a lot of politics involved as well and of course a lot of the key players including you including american key players disagree on some very key issues and thinking about syria and thinking about missile defense thinking about iran is there a danger that the politics may stifle get in the way of the big economic deals that the very same key players hoping to sign at this summit or at least talk about science and if. that is true but in fact you just said it yourself a pick was originally conceived as a forum for discussing economic issues therefore we are planning to focus primarily on economic challenges transport global food security and the task of liberalizing the global economy as far as syria and other hotspots are concerned is using the currently in the limelight and we will certainly address them in or deliberations of the forum in bilateral discussions or otherwise they wouldn't be overlooked the . problem of sr you touched on another big subject in the headlines the register
12:33 am
vents that have been unfolding in syria over the last eighteen months now russia's position has been steadfast all the way along the line here you've said this should be no foreign intervention and it should be the syrian people who do the deciding it should be done through diplomacy however that's a great idea but day in day out innocent lives are being lost on both sides is it time for something more than talking should russia be reassessing its position make me now from what i see it took a listen and put it to you so how come russia is the only one which is expected to revise its stance don't you think our counterparts in negotiations want to revise theirs as well because we'll. looking back at the events in the past few years will see that quite a few of our counterparts initiatives have not played out the way they were intended to take the examples of numerous countries riven by escalating internal conflict the u.s. and its allies went into afghanistan and now they're all thinking about how they
12:34 am
can get out of the no you sure the situation will be stable for decades to come and look at what's going on in the arab countries what concerns us from what i want to emphasize once again is the current hostilities in syria but at the same time we have just as concerned about the possible consequences of certain decisions should they be taken in or opinion the most important today is ending the violence we must all the warring parties including the government and the so-called rebels the armed opposition to sit down at the negotiating table and decide on a future that would guarantee security for all stakeholders in syria only then should they get down to any practical measures regarding the country's future government system we realize that this country needs a change but this doesn't mean the change should come with bloodshed i believe that the first thing to do is to stop shipping into the war zone which is still going on but we should stop trying to impose unacceptable solutions on either side because
12:35 am
it is a dead end and i think that's what we should do it's that simple understood mr president other question i'd like to ask you a number of western arab nations have been covertly to start with supporting the f.s.a. the free syrian army some of them doing it openly course the catch here is that the f.s.a. is suspected of hiring a known al qaeda fighters amongst their ranks so the twist in this tale is that a lot of those countries are actually sponsoring terrorism if you like in syria countries that have suffered from terrible terrorism themselves is that a fair assessment. you know when someone aspires to attain and then they see is optimal any means will do as a rule they try will. and do that by hook or by crook and hardly ever think of the consequences that was the case during the war in afghanistan when the soviet union invaded in one nine hundred seventy knowing a tory mob hasn't put the support of the rebel movement there and then basically gave rise to al-qaeda that which later backfired on the united states itself today
12:36 am
some want to use militants from al qaida or some other organizations with equally radical views to accomplish their goals in syria this policy is dangerous and very shortsighted let's turn over to the united states the upcoming election there which we're all looking forward to very much of course now the reset button with russia was firmly pushed by barack obama over the last four years but still that missile defense shield the headache for russia in the east of europe if obama does win a second term what's going to define the next chapter of russia and america's relations and is it a chap that you can do business with. i believe the over the last four years presidents obama and medvedev have made a lot of progress in strengthening russia u.s. relations we have saw in the new start treaty to go with them backed by the us russia has become a fully fledged member of the world trade organization there are more reasons to be
12:37 am
optimistic about our bilateral relations with these two you mentioned the u.s. missile defense system is surely one of the key issues on today's agenda because it involves russia's vital interests. and experts understand that a unilateral solution will not in harness global stability in essence the intention is to upset the strategic balance which is a very dangerous thing to do as any involved party would always strive to maintain its offensive capabilities and the entire thing could simply trigger off a race is it possible to find a solution to the problem if president obama is reelected for a second term i mean principle yes it is. but this isn't just about president obama for all i know his desire to work out a solution is quite sincere but almost before this my feeling is that he is a sincere man and that he sincerely wants to implement positive change but can he do it will they let him do it to i mean that there is also the military lobby and
12:38 am
the department of state which is quite conservative let's imagine for a second we have all the solution the means from now on we jointly assess missile threats and control this defense system together this is a highly sensitive area of national defense i am not sure that our partners are ready for this kind of cooperation with the national so we think you can work with barack obama if you get in what if mitt romney gets in a quote here from just a month or two ago this is the man that if he makes it to the white russia is without question our number one geopolitical foe they fight every cause for the world's worst actors went on to say russia or is not a friendly character on the world stage could you work with them. torsion yes we can we work with whichever president is elected by the american people but our effort will only be as efficient as our partners allow it to be as for mr romney's
12:39 am
position we understand that this is to a certain extent motivated by election campaign rhetoric but i also think that he was only just clear wrong because such behavior in the international arena is the same as using nationalism and segregation as a tools of us domestic policy its effect in the international arena is the same when a politician a person who aspires to lead a nation especially a great country like the us declares someone to be enemy a priore and by the way this brings something else to mind when we talk about the missile defense system or american partners keep telling us this is not directed against you but what happens if mr romney and believes us to be america's number one photo which is elected as president of the united states in that case the missile defense system will definitely be directed against russia as it is technologically configured exactly for this purpose i'd like to talk about the trial and jailing of pussy riot punk group and there's been much criticism of the
12:40 am
sentence handed down was too strong was too much and the whole case was just made to big a deal of fat and actually backfire it's brought all people to their cause with a publicist with hindsight it was a beautiful thing but with hindsight you think the case could have been handled differently i have always felt the punishment should be proportionate to the offense no i am not in a position now and would not like in any way to comment on the decision of a russian court but i would rather talk about the moral side of the story. first in case you've never heard of it a couple of years ago one of the band's members put up three effigies in one of moscow's big supermarkets with a sign saying that jews gays and migrant workers should be driven out of moscow i think you're thora he should have looked into their activities back then. after that they staged an orgy in a public place of course people are allowed to do what ever they want to do as long as it's legal for this kind of conduct in a public place should not go unnoticed by the or thirty's then they are loaded
12:41 am
video on the internet then they turned up at your lock of a cathedral here in moscow causing unholy mayhem look at that and then went to another cathedral and caused mayhem there too you know russians still have painful memories of the early years of soviet rule when thousands of orthodox muslim as well as the clergy from other religions were persecuted and so in general i think the state has to protect the feelings of believers or if you're doing i will not comment on whether the verdict is well grounded in the sentence proportionate to the offense these girls must have lawyers who defend their interests in court they have the right to file an appeal and demand a new hearing and it's up to them it is just a legal issue we've got you with us let's get your thoughts on the ongoing julian assange case in britain i'm sure you've been watching it is a legal battle with britain and with a number of other countries as well but equally his attempts to get asylum in ecuador is no god he's holed up in the ecuadorian embassy what's your opinion of
12:42 am
britain at one point he was talking about. revoking the embassies diplomatic immunity if they could actually go in and get him that kind of sounds a bit odd when of course you think as well that russia has a number of suspects that russia wants to talk to britain is a kind of topsy turvy situation isn't it but they've given safe harbor in britain. this certainly is an unsettling factor in our relations with the u.k. i used to tell my previous counterparts and friends in the british government not those holding office at the moment the britain happens to be harboring certain individuals who have blood on their hands having waged a real war on russian territory and slaughtered people do you know what i was told in response should come put that's exactly why. the soviet union used to do aiding people like that first of all i'm a former soviet secret service operative myself but i don't know whether the u.s.s.r. used a this sort of people or not simply because i never had anything to do with it but
12:43 am
even if we assume it did that was back in the cold war era you know there has been a cardinal change in the settings the soviet union is history and what we have today is a new russia how can we allow ourselves to be dominated by our old phobias and outdated perceptions of international relations and the kind of relations between nations it's time to let them go but if we are constantly lectured about how independent britain's judiciary is it makes its own decisions and no one can influence it the one about judy in a song they ruled him to be extradited what is that if it's not a self evident example of a double standard i won't make a definitive statement but as far as i know ecuador has requested guarantees from the swedish government sweden wouldn't hand the soldier over to the united states through no guarantees of being forthcoming at the very least this suggests that we are looking at a politically motivated trial. wealthy

the country it is seen as a major success as it begins to turn its attention to hosting the winter games in twenty fourteen with more his running costs. if you expected them to triumph in such fashion but with the whole winter games in sochi looming it seems only natural that russia had no option but to storm the paralympic gold you. i'm doing my best to visit kids with disabilities to speak to their parents because you should never give up in any case you can bring your kid to the swimming pool or any other type of sport the main thing is not to give up have a go and go for it and you will definitely reach it the london games have revealed that like many other nations britain also needed a push towards greater acceptance of people with disabilities and the local spectators demonstrated just that by buying up almost all the tickets available that prompted a question to the international paralympic committee whether similar exposure could
12:54 am
be achieved come the next winter games in sochi i'm confident we will achieve similar levels of. spectators and also a presence of media and as you said the winter sports is not as extended like summer one consequently we need to compare to. who could be interested but there is no question in my mind that all the big countries that you have here. is one of them out of going to also have a lot of in that is because. we have had here has been very important multiple paralympic medalist. will be travelling home with a gold silver and bronze is also the ambassador for the twenty fourteen winter games in russia's black sea resort city of sochi so it's probably safe to say that for her the work is far from over as she is about to switch and. to being the country symbol mr video that you understand who feel all the stadiums because the
