visit to moscow arches alexia is following it for us. korea is now in moscow the very same city where edward snowden their whistleblower now resides on his political asylum the breaking revelations of who infuriated the leader of ecuador back this summer and judging by what he said but judging by what i said to our very own spanish channel even before he went. to an exclusive interview he is still pretty much angry especially in the light of the latest revelations on high profile politicians in europe being wiretapped by the n.s.a. let's have a listen. but at least they said it was necessary for fighting against terrorism and i don't know if i'm going to merkel is a terrorist i think it's clear they use civilians programs for economic reasons for helping the transnational companies can you imagine what could happen if the program was carried out by been cuba russia it could or argentina they would have
6:05 am
cooties dictations criminals and we could be judged in the international court this level even the fact that. the economy of ecuador largely depends on the united states it's not by no means an obstacle for mr korea to come with open criticism of washington's actions i remember when i covered the huge international scandal involving the visit to moscow of another latin american leader the president believe you ever more or less want to use a plane was denied airspace in europe and had to spend twelve hours at vienna's airport so back then i quoted a very explosive words from the ecuadorian foreign ministry which said that if something like this happens to us president then it would have been a good reason to declare war so of course the economic and military cooperation will be on the table at the talks between putin and korea but there's no chance that the fate of mr snowden will escape their attention in this conversation which for the first time in his history the u.s. congress has to hear directly from

6:08 am
that the drones were killing only high value targets or represented an imminent threat it doesn't make sense it's just not possible so i think there was a kind of hopefulness yes finally we found a magic pill which is part of it some of it is the fact that american soldiers warrant there so people said doesn't matter as important is that you know the family is speaking to all kinds of americans people who have a mother will have a father and who look at them and can't justify the killing that we've done and then you have this extraordinary militarily industrial electoral complex bipartisan that agrees that the way to solve problems is by invading occupying and droning we have to change all over. and as a u.s. keeps its guns are trained on parts of pakistan is also fun and then billions of dollars to neighboring afghanistan. coming up later this hour as serious questions

6:19 am
into this city this evening and will end up here it's amazing to think that this torch has been on the road in russia for just twenty three days during that time it's been up at the north pole it's being carried by father frost and i think in just over a week's time it will be up to the international space station for a space walk before coming back down to earth to continue that amazing sixty five thousand kilometer journey around russia before it ends in sochi in time for the opening ceremony on february the seventh in exactly one hundred days time but for the moment at least eyes are also on the ground because that is today's name on the flame and i'll be doing my best to keep up with the relay and to keep you updated. one hundred days remaining. my. days are flying. too short to. shoot.
