thank you so much for joining us here on r t today. live in moscow with your worldwide headlines. but if he is a crying foul after a number of european states refused to let a plane carrying its president their airspace all because of rumors that surveillance whistleblower edward snowden may have been on board a bit earlier in the program i spoke to piss going off for more on this mali. so the president of bolivia evo morales was flying back home after this major gas supplier summit in moscow and when his plane need to be fueling went france denied lending at first they said it was due to technical reasons but then it turned out it was due to more is that edward snowden may have been on board so the aircraft staff asked other countries for assistance including portugal italy and spain and
2:02 am
they denied landing as well and actually could reached a point when the aircraft began dangerously running out of fuel and they had to make a landing in austria but spain also demanded that the be allowed to check the aircraft for snowden something absolutely unprecedented this approach in dealing with a presidential aircraft at this moment even morale is still stranded in austria waiting for in a spare space corridor or to continue his journey now and this is all happening despite the austrian foreign minister confirming that snowden is not on board that plane the bolivians are absolutely outraged the country's defense minister before is on board of that plane says that the europeans have put the president's a life in danger we've heard from several latin american states including cuba and ecuador they call this an unprecedented massive offensive against not only believe the air but the entire latin america and argentina and you will learn now talking
2:03 am
about holding a major latin american states a summit to discuss this whole incident now it's interesting that many european officials are reacting to snowden's revelations some have engaged with the u.s. demanding explanations over the latest reports that the n.s.a. has been spying on europe but then on the other hand many are trying to avoid any contact with snowden whatsoever even reaching the point when the denial lending to a presidential aircraft in need of refueling or are demanding. aircraft but one of the reasons why the thought that snowden could. i've been on that plane is because earlier exclusively to our t. even morales said that his country was ready to provide political asylum to edward snowden why not of course the situation is far from ideal his case is constantly discussed on an international level bolivia is ready to give political asylum to the people who expose spying and so to speak. another leader who is
2:04 am
seems to be sympathetic to snowden and his revelations is the president of venezuela and our team managed to catch up with him as well here's what he said on the whole situation around the former n.s.a. contractor this young man has to be protected by the international community he dead we've dignity to tell the world that there are mechanisms to spy on it even on your own allies if snowden stays alone he will be destroyed by protecting snowden we will protect peace i have to stress though that all of venezuela and bolivia say that they still haven't received an official request for political asylum from mr snowden he did retract his request from russia after hearing the conditions voiced by the president vladimir putin said that snowden could stay if you wanted to but then he would have to stop working against washington the u.s. is still asking for his extradition while moscow's claims that while they're not
2:05 am
planning to pass and more recently see him as a human rights activist. and they don't see a possible actuating him to the u.s. where they still use the death penalty but well for edward snowden this still means this transit limbo continues for now. if you go to prison for putting there are now in the meantime ecuador has found microphones sprinkled around its london embassy made days after revelations that the us had physically bugged dozens of diplomatic outposts and no but gang a chairman of germany's party of reason he says he's not surprised adding that governments will always use whatever powers they can get their hands on this whole affair just show a little what happens when government spends out of control whenever you give government power point or i mean so much our government will use that power and turn it around and use it against their own people and use it against their their
2:06 am
allies and there will definitely i think there will definitely be a fallout from this affair what the fallout will be we don't know yet but the question is not why was germany or why was this or the other country a target it just shows that whenever a government has the possibility to do something it will use that possibility what government what the government can do the government will eventually do and that once again shows how important it is to fight and to to go against this use of power now france is at the forefront of the e use a rhetorical offensive against washington surveillance activities officials have even said that a massive trade pact to be negotiated by the atlantic allies could well be in ruins by the spying revelations this report is maria phenomena now. no lice between elyse no privileges for the ones proven false fronts has been so furious of
2:07 am
america's in couldn't spying that it's almost straightforwardly rejected the e.u. us years long project the world's biggest free trade zone now we have this political and diplomatic debate is it normal that one state united states with the help of the united kingdom takes the ability to spy on every communications all over the world there's a lot of people who tend to think that not normal that's not morally and politically justified according to recent leaks of the us national security agency has carried out covert surveillance on french and e.u. high ranking officials both at home and abroad monitoring millions of emails and calls blogger and internet freedom fighters and mark says paes have always existed but the way the game is played has been transformed what is interesting now it's to figure that the n.s.a. doesn't spy on people only for terrorism to fight terrorism but also for political
2:08 am
and also economical reasons because we know that they are using this spying system to help american companies stefan used to work as a journalist in the soviet union at the time of the cold war he says he has an impression that nothing has changed since then or role most nothing. at least it was clear at that time there were two sides two lines today is not certain who is friend and who is rival yes good question if there are friends at all true friends or not sure. france america's nato partner has been supporting its most controversial initiatives over the last decade sharing risks and expenses cost in both money and human lives. we're asking for confirmation or if i'm asian of it so as not to prejudge it but there is already a sufficient amount of elements for us to ask for an explanation what will be the
2:09 am
consequence and sort of course first for it to end as soon as possible i would see mediately but some doubt that france will go beyond wars in the circus ations believing that perry's who continue to dance to america's tune. we think alone should stop only goshi ations over the free trade zone but we sure he's not going to do this because his key logic is to keep good relations with the usa and this is a big problem for europe even humiliated and violated by america we still want to have special relations with this country. france has demanded a clarification from the us but has so far been denied an answer this is one of thousands of cameras that we can see around paris and it can see us one the government is using for security reasons france may not be a world leader on the list of big brothers but even these has sparked a tense discussion here over freedom and privacy violation of un ordinary citizens
2:10 am
the reaction has been more vocal when politicians and diplomats found themselves in the spotlight and of a way bigger surveillance system it's too early to say whether paris and washington will ever be able to small they spoken of contention and move on or they'll always look bad. from paris. pakistan the nation focuses on building relations with china as the u.s. turns from. the wake of a wave of unaccountable deadly drone strikes. now at least sixteen people have been killed and more than two hundred wounded overnight in fierce clashes between pro-government protesters and riot police in the egyptian capital eyewitnesses reported gunshots university gas being fired to disperse the angry crowds clashes flared up ahead of president mohamed morsi
2:11 am
televised debate where he rejected any threats to his rule claiming that he is the legitimate leader. of the details and true. we've had clashes between supporters and opponents of the president and here in the capital very violent civilian and civilian crashes this escalated now with protesters fighting the police said take out is being used birdshot bullets a handmade guns and weapons so we're already seeing escalating violence and tensions across the country this is the background of the violence the leader this has been leading up to these nationwide protests people are fearing that we're going to see further violence on the rise and particularly on this speech which really hasn't offered anything fuel for the opposition forces the president was resolute he is not resigning he's staying friends he said he was democratically elected and hold a legitimate president to carry peace in this word to dismiss a he said he would call that interesting to see with his life and anything was he said his will is the will of the people another sticking point that he mentions
2:12 am
which will cause conflict between him and the opposition forces and also the army is under the constitution he said we must stick by the constitution is already drafted into question ministries rosemount egypt these leaks to the press in that were not complete created a new threat a new constitution so with the president saying they will stick with the old woman expect to see conflict between him and the the army as well as the opposition forces here waiting for reaction from the army because this is directly conflicting with that to see how a deadline make a claim to respect the demands of the people and otherwise they will intervene to be seeing really the presidency and the army at nova heads directly right now. cairo now we had a chance to speak to middle east analyst call shero he says it's easy to understand why people are protesting against the morsi government but he believes that the existing opposition in egypt is no better. do you think tonight was
2:13 am
a mason the new one is this puppet and i'm going to miss it i meant the princes and i think that's how i'm doing this year a lot of sectarianism and i think that's kind of negative language from the government that it's had president morsi the same time this tie their shoes on last night i find outside almost on the popular demonstrations not on it that's not on the table to express its the minds and if you want to deny this i'm able to propose real political platform to move forward for egypt so it's just simply trying to be some of the to get to the major sites to confront. but ultimately the process it would call me names in the army taking over and simply giving ultimatums to right and left to officials this is an incomplete variation it's a store shelf democracy and so i think that's not something the senate agreed and i think there's a danger in this kind of becoming and all the fun trolls here good night ends up somehow being distorted and some undermining elected officials. and all public
