important than ever and china is using smart power to advance its global interests. and yet the chairwoman of the house foreign affairs committee has been pretty vocal opponent of foreign aid spending, except for israel. how do you convince her and her colleagues that this is actually a strategic investment in the long-term, that it may be tens of billions of dollars but you can actually get more benefit at the end of the day from it? >> well i think secretary clinton has been particularly eloquent in making the case that our foreign policy is important to keep americans safe, to help americans prosper, and is a national security budget, not just a foreign aid budget. that foreign aid helps our national security. we've had a number of crisis around the world and our embassies are helping keep americans safe. when americans are caught up in tumult and unrest. and her reporting back to washington what they are seeing and hearing and they are form the backbone of the information that we in washington use to make decisions. they also represent american businesses, american educational institut

that, at the end of the day, india and china are both in pakistan and have a role to play in afghanistan. there will be a partnership with india, which initially was an issue, because it was thought it might antagonize pakistan. definitely, india has a bigger role to play, provided that some of the bigger conflict that exists in our region, particularly in kashmir, are left out of this issue. at the end of the day, we think a stable afghanistan is a better friend of pakistan. a weak and unstable afghanistan will in danger pakistan as much as afghanistan. india is providing more than $2 billion of economic assistance. they are getting more interested to get involved in training of the afghan security forces in a professional level, like the police and others, not so much the afghan national army, which needs to continue either through the united states or some of our nato partners, to provide the continuity of what we have started together. >> do you want to say a few words? >> i essentially agree with the ambassador that a stable afghanistan is in the best interest of pakista

are up there. china has blinded one of our satellites with a laser. this is not too hard to figure out this scenario. if we have a nation that blinds a critical component of our overhead architecture and our dominance, and we have no way to repair that satellite because we're busy attacking -- you see that very quickly we could lose that dominance. which nation is seeking in an all-out effort for a new military presence on the globe? china. china is seeing that military presence. and while i want to have peaceful relations with all nations, i also believe that ronald reagan led the way again. he said that we have those relations with adopting the policy of peace through strength. and as the commander-in-chief of this nation, that is my policy as well. my father served in the air force, my stepdad in the army, my brother retired full united states navy. i have respect and admiration for our military. i will make sure that they're fully resourced, but we must maintain the number one military presence in the world. that is job one.

can't and we were talking about that who's going to deal with india. the nations and especially china, which purchase such a large amount that continue to purchase iranian oil, if we could get them to do more to scale back their energy purchases, i think it would take the sanctions regime, which are having an effect, and make them even more effective and hopefully help us. we have a meeting in early july and i think senator reid pulled it together with the number two leader of the chinese government and i asked him this question. you've reduced your oil purchases from iran for a variety of reasons, including to help the sanctions. could you reduce them dramatically further and then say, but if you give up your nuclear program, we're going buy a lot more from you, so have a stick, but then have a carrot, and could india do the same thing, dramatically reduce oil purchases, but with a carrot down the road, or japan could do the same thing, and the response to the chinese official was very adroit and very quick. he said he would be very willing to consider cutting our purchases from iran

participated in by russia, by china, and some allies of ours like south korea and japan that find these sanctions very costly. but that's precisely why they've become so effective. and so what we've said is that we do not loosen any of the core sanctions -- we provide a small window through which they can access some revenue, but we can control it and it is reversible. and during the course of these six months, if and when iran shows itself not to be abiding by this agreement, not to be negotiating in good faith, we can reverse them and tighten them even further. but here is the bottom line. ultimately, my goal as president of the united states -- something that i've said publicly and privately and shared everywhere i've gone -- is to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. but what i've also said is the best way for us to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapons is for a comprehensive, verifiable, diplomatic resolution, without taking any other options off the table if we fail to achieve that. it is important for us to test that proposition during the next six months, unde

motivation for france, russia, and china to support this deal? guest: they have different motivations. russia would like to see some restraint of the iranian missile threat because it provides them the opportunity to argue that the u.s. does not need to continue with the u.s. missile defense operation with europe. france joined the npt in a 1992 and has taken a strong view against nuclear nonproliferation, stopping the spread of nuclear weapons making abilities. france's foreign ministry has a very active nuclear exporting factor. but a lot of people there really want to stop the threat of the bomb. i think you saw the french foreign minister was pushing very hard to make sure that the deal in geneva struck a plan. i think he won a long way in making it a long way, but the geneva plan could have made it better. host: is oil from iran part of the interest? guest: the issue that a lot of countries would like to buy iranian oil, and there are a lot of countries, especially the consumers would like to see even one of these sanctions on iranian oil. the u.s. ally, japan, has shut down all

does not go backwards because it is a big economy. 2.5 or whatever times the size of china. if this does in the wrong direction, the world is not really there to help it. i think rate structure stays low. so when they set taper, interestingly enough, they did not save a lot. the markets have taken a 10-year instrument, a 10-year treasury drawer a 30 -- treasury, or a 30-year mortgage. they got ahead of them and people got convinced it was going to happen and then it did not. you saw the 10-year went all the way up to almost three percent. it will be an adjustment, and there is no question everybody worries about that. we worry about all the time, what will happen, what will be the effect? the reason why the rate structure goes up is that the economy is growing faster than people think it is. underneath it, the economy is growing. other reasons our mistake inflation. that is a problem. >> but from what you are saying, you don't think the rate structure is going to go up very much. you continue to expect this fed support for some time? >> our view is a little over 2.5% growth in the u

europeans or russia and china and others, so it is backed unanimously either leading countries on earth. i am very glad to see that done. north korea is going in the other direction. basically unnecessarily. i went to north korea in 1994. to deal with a crisis in north korea. some of you are familiar with this. the leader of north korea then, revered and was worshiped almost like washington, george washington and jesus put together. i am not exaggerating. the united states was on the verge of declaring north korea to be an outlaw nation, and kim il-sung to be a criminal. my chinese friends came to me and said, if the united states did that, the north koreans to save face would invade and attack south korea. the military general in charge was an american from arkansas, and he told me a million south koreans would be killed in the first 48 hours. i decided to go to north korea, and i negotiated a very comprehensive agreement with kim il-sung that ended their .roduction of plutonium unfortunately, since then, other things have happened. this week, the north koreans announced he will expand

really hurts low income countries. middle income countries like china, they have got a lot of injustice because of what is not covered. yet in some ways because they are more open-minded they are trying different things. there will be good examples to come out of those countries, that even the rich countries should look at. the idea, what are the job categories, how do you measure outcomes? there are a lot of vibrancy there. high income countries are facing the same rate of increase, although we managed to be at a starting point of about 1.5 times worse than everyone else. i got pulled into health not because it is a big foundation priority, but at the state budget level where you have to or at least pretend the balance on a yearly basis there aren't some projects having to do with pensions that if they were in the private sector would be considered out and out fraud. because they have to pretend to balance, it education that gets hurt and for our foundation, that is the big doe mostic focus is the education system. ironically, in the last 15 years, a lot of additional money w

polarize it even with russia or china. we had a strong ally in the middle east. to hear these people really put on sanctions, an act of war against a country where we have meddled in their politics for years and years and years before we cut off relations is disturbing to me. think these people pushing this propaganda out with their information revolution we are in now will succeed. i really don't. host: but those are some interesting comments, sanctions as an act of war. guest: i have no problem with export controls. these have been approved by the u.n. security council and they have shown to have some impact in terms of slowing the program down. i have no problems against egregious abusers of human rights, which they have a number of, especially since the disputed presidential elections in 2009. the government is better equipped to evade the sanctions than ordinary iranians are. if you are a middle-class businessman who needs hard currency, you cannot get it. there are a limited number of banks around the world that will give you a letter of credit or handle of some kind of transac

, russia, china, all the countries that have interest in afghanistan. their calculus would be affected by our signing a bilateral agreement. >> so i think it is a very important answer. i have the same feeling. i think islamabad is the first capital that would be affected by the bilateral agreement. tying some elements of the pakistani government to terrorist groups. they are hedging their bets for what happens the day after we leave. if we're not leaving presumably, they lose that argument. but, you know, there is -- every situation is different. i can't help but relate this to iraq. nobody wanted our discussions with the iraqi government for a presence in iraq after our troops left to fail more than iran did. and in fact, they were working on that. the fact that it did fail and we have no continuing presence in iraq i think is part of the reason why iran's influences spread there and so incidentally has al qaeda re- emerged again. i think those are warnings to us about how important it is to do exactly what you have called for, which is to have a good -- much smaller but a real ameri

ukraine. and there is no comparable aligned structure in east and see the asia. in china today although the conventional wisdom in the united states is that china is undergoing a peaceful rise and it will be a responsible stakeholder in world affairs that is only one potential a scenario. it may be the post desirable but it is certainly not the most likely. as well as its economic strength china is engaged in a massive buildup of its ballistic and nuclear forces. it is building a blue water navy for the first time literally in 600 years as bill mittendorf said has advanced cyber warfare capabilities and antiaccess weapon systems, it is modernizing the people's liberation army ground components and it is essentially now making assertive almost belligerent territorial claims in the east china sea and the south china sea. once again, many people in the united states may say that is to far away all of the islands that are three inches above water on a good day, what possible interest can they be to us? the interest to us i think is palpable because not only are there potentially important m

framework. your second point about china, and i will make this point real quick, pedro. china has unilaterally declared an air defense identification zone over the east china sea. part of that extends over the sun -- part of that extends over the senkaku islands, which china and the ban -- and japan are debating over who owns it. i was in japan a couple of weeks ago. i got to meet with folks from the government and the japanese parliament, as well as going to okinawa and visit some of the military facilities out there. the u.s. is positioned on these senkaku islands, and they fall under the u.s.-japan treaty because japan has demonstrated control over the senkaku islands. -- has administrative control over the senkaku islands. withchina is trying to do the air defense identification zone is to argue that japan has administrative control over the airspace and those islands. on the one hand, president obama ordered the military to fly b-52 bombers, they were arty planning -- already planning to go through there, but he went through with it to signify that they do not recognize it. i

? that is fine. we followed them years ago. dismantling by china and russia and their neighbors. they tend to be very concerned. they are allowing democracy movement to get their word out to communicate. that keeps evolving. the losses governments try to clamp down on that. i have also been concerned about. that is just a statement. it is like a competitive market. people want to get information. it is so we can really regulate. i serve on the energy committee and he power plants of the time. the opening statement talked about you could be secure if you have a desktop alone and no longer connected. vinifies what votes could and of doing. the power utility system relies so much on data going to rtos. what they are producing is excitable electrons to get on the grid. if that is all we had to worry about we would be fairly safe. it is all the calculation. >> i testified earlier. we have to start within the power production plant itself. we are working with large manufacturers. you want to know whether the original ones or the ones coming in, who they are and where they are from. we need
