elegant up until the stroke or less the become the hutto. working with nato to prevent a new arms race and forging closer ties with foreign partners those are the top priorities outlined in. presidential address to the federal assembly. it's barack obama's big test as he tries to break republican opposition and use his final chance this year to push past congress and treaty with russia. peace activists in denmark have been demonstrating for almost a decade against its involvement in the afghanistan war but the protests are falling on deaf ears.
live from moscow this is r.t. welcome to the program russia and nato should secure agreements on a joint anti missile system otherwise a new arms race may start that's according to dmitri medvedev who delivered the presidential address to the federal assembly today efforts in. russia's plans to join the w t o were also among the focal points and he said now it gives us a review of the presidential speech. but easy g.m. i see figured out. to be the door each need to get you the state of the nation a perfect way to make a statement about how to protect the interests of a state russia sees missile defense as the number one priority on its global agenda not for today but for the future it is racially distillate here in the next decade we have the following alternatives either we reach an agreement on missile defense
and create a full blown mechanism for cooperation or if we fail to have a constructive agreement a new stage of the arms race will start and we will have to make a decision on creating new strike forces it was one of his strongest statement is one which experts think will get across how much russia wants cooperation not confrontation as they say in the united states is a game changer something which will dramatically change the strategic equation if it does not happen he wanted to say then we may be for a new period of confrontation the president made a did didn't mention the u.s. or their so-called reset he focused on countries like china when talking about trade and boosting investment back home that i should add to it related to step up economic diplomacy as it should provide specific results for modernization of our foreign policy should not just be based on missiles we have already formed the customs union and currently we are creating
a common economic area under the range an economic community that we're testing cutting edge integration patterns as well as programs of effective cooperation basically we must move towards a common economic area spreading from the arctic to the pacific ocean or through eurasia of course a good part of the address focused on domestic goals from pensions to paychecks president made me do have pinpointed many problems and now he thinks they should be solved long term they must have a true. this speech wasn't just about the upcoming year it was about russia's plans for many years to come here's what the president said about russia's raging corruption problem but because of our experience shows that even facing a twelve year jail term does not stop corrupt people we think that sometimes economic measures such as a fine could be. so commercially bribery with one hundred four years from. now it's time for lawmakers to get to work the president's plan is out there to
meet the needs of a diff has pave the road he wants to see russia on now it's time for these men and women to get the country on that track and stay the course reporting from the kremlin and he's the way are to. head for you here on r.t. driving for peace but no one's listening. you cannot fight terror with war because war is terror that's our main issue you know we explore why the authorities and media in denmark turning a blind eye to campaigners demanding the country's troops withdraw from afghanistan . it is this year's the last chance for barack obama pushed the u.s. legislators to ratify the nuclear arms reduction treaty with russia as republicans try to store the process obama plans to address the country's senate later on tuesday to get more support from congress. which can explain exactly why some are not giving the treaty the go ahead. obama basically has two leaks or so to have his
arguably major foreign policy achievement passed by the senate then we'll have the christmas break and after the holidays a by then the treaty is still not ratified there will be dark days awaiting obama's start more republican senators will take office and many of them are skeptical about the treaty but it seems the substance of the treaty its content has long stopped being the focus of discussions here in washington a partisan game sort of scoring of political points seem to be more important to some politicians than what's actually at stake and that's the point obama has been making for weeks we've heard him call for republican senators to step away from this overwhelming desire to undermine his presidency and really look at the treaty itself and how important it is for the u.s. national security senator lugar who's been forcefully arguing he's a republican of course he's been forcefully arguing for the republicans to do the right thing if he can persuade enough republicans and maybe some of the outgoing
republican senators to get on board maybe we could see passage but this is going to take some. some monumental statesmanship not only on the part of president obama but on the part of the democratic and republican leaders in the senate who are not trying to sabotage the start treaty with the with russia the start is not just about reducing both countries' nuclear arsenals by a third it's seen as a symbol of trust between the two nuclear superpowers and obama made it clear in some of his earliest statements that further cooperation plans with russia could when they go south without this key trading places trust how important russia's assistance is in afghanistan how crucial russia's cooperation was on the rand and some other aspects of u.s. russia we said and everybody here realizes that the new start is sort of the milestone of this reset in terms of substance and key questions concerns whatever
senators had regarding the new start treaty those were all addressed to start is quite simply a commonsense agreement. to control the world's most dangerous weapons and then have stability between the two countries two countries that preserve us over ninety percent of them and what are completely opposite irresponsible decision it would be if the united states senate just got bogged down in politics and walked away from this moment unwilling to make that kind of decision that offers the kind of leadership that the world that i think certainly the american people expect us to make the country's military unanimously testified in support for the treaty and number of former secretary of state both republican and democrat former defense secretary all said having started is in u.s. national interest so there is a huge bipartisan support for the trade among experts but not on the hill and obama
has very little time to change that. he is gone a chicken reporting that well the publication by wiki leaks of a huge raft of communiques has played havoc with american diplomacy politicians around the world say the confidential reports of u.s. officials offer a few new facts but gerald celente is the director of the trends research institute says the revelations are a damning indictment of the united states. today the american media's does scrapes now how about you know look at the garbage they talk about michael jackson for months on end tiger woods so the internet is opening up a whole different way of of new journalism for the twenty first century and this is an example i heard hillary clinton's quote about how american foreign policy is public was great this is these wiki leaks are making it more popular we're seeing
how incompetent they are how would doubles weekday you know how they show was handshakes and smiles on t.v. while they're doing dirty talk behind their backs you know this is the new way of journalism however look what's going on also some clowns out there that call themselves congressmen have this stuff terrorism so we're going to have a position with the federal government as they did last week they're going to start closing down sites and prosecuting people have about this claim saddam hussein has weapons of mass destruction and ties to al qaeda i mean they make claims all the time where i would any one of the thinking adults mind police to anything the government says to them especially when we see these facts revealed in another light read my lips no new taxes i did have sex with that woman monica lewinsky i
smoke but i didn't inhale we the people should have the right to this information they want a transparent government let's have it. well some of the cables obtained by wiki leaks concern to tensions around north and south korea suggesting senior chinese officials favor a reunification of the two countries under seoul's control the documents were revealed as north korea's parliamentary chairman came to china for diplomatic talks earlier the us south korea and japan reportedly rejected beijing's call to sit down and resume talks on north korea disarmament the north is further unnerved by a joint american south korean military exercise in nearby disputed waters professor ruediger frank of vienna university says solves current policy is dangerous with a volatile state like north korea. itself korean president finds himself between the rock and a hard place on one hand if you goes nothing you can lose credibility at home and
abroad if you overreacts you will risk a major confrontation and may be disastrous consequences for his own people so after the sinking of the channel in march however it seems that you doesn't feel like sitting still this time so he's walking a tightrope between showing force strength and actually a confrontation or as i understand his policy here regarding the sunshine policy of his to prove you sources. in the fish are not effective so he decided to return to a policy of strict reciprocity towards north korea to its good actions will be rewarded that actions need to be punished i think goes through a policy of the current south korean president. there's plenty more to be
discovered on our website that's r.t. dot com and there you'll find exclusive coverage opinion and analysis including. suspected of forcing disobedient children into mental health hospitals where they were treated more on this story. and a new role may be in store for immigrants in russia as it is set to welcome foreigners. before since for the first time discover more. there's no shortage of skepticism in europe over the war in afghanistan in denmark though antiwar activists have been camping outside parliament for nearly a decade they are opposing the danish participation in the so-called war on
terrorism they want to make politicians stand up and listen but their calls are falling on deaf. ears. i ve been here for nine years and they're not planning on leaving anytime soon among us. we're like no we don't want to go home or leave it to them again you know the your peace watch and they believe their government is doing the wrong thing but participating in the war in afghanistan you cannot fight terror with a wall because war is terror that's our main issue you know denmark has more than seven hundred troops in afghanistan a soldier killed recently brought the total number of danish losses to thirty nine so peace watch believe very key is as important today as it was in two thousand and one this is the danish ministry of defense right across the street from this is the danish parliament members of peace watch have been standing here for the last nine
years day in and day out demanding the pullout of davis troops from afghanistan so has anybody been paying attention to them apparently not in fact they say it's not just the government that ignores them but the media and the general public too sometimes they say well denmark isn't war we say to the youngsters over here coming to us they say look around where i don't see any war and occasional deeds we happen to pass by also don't show much enthusiasm i don't see. really an. aggressive. militaristic. so why have peace watch activists not been able to gain a new tension at least could there be. dear it's some believe it's because an antiwar mood in the country is something when you think. well there's a majority of the population against all continued participation of the stuff even
. before the public opinion has become skeptical but that's quite new but peace watch i determined to stay put until they reach their goal even if it takes their nine years stay here. but if you meet the. current tea cup if you can. it's not quarter past the hour here in moscow you are with and what can be more important than trusting the news and information we see and hear but as one american veteran journalist has found out neither the news nor campaign ads need to be true in her special report next hour so wilson examines how the media shapes public opinion and whether it is an information getaway or a means of manipulation. it was created to serve public interests to inform and to entertain.
these days there's nothing easier than opening a new media outlet but there is nothing harder than revoking its license in case of corruption. you can get involved in a community where you have one large corporation controlling the newspaper radio stations television stations the cable. you told me the. public opinion versus f.c.c. broadcast blues. it is the last day before the country is vying to host the football world cup in two thousand and eighteen and two thousand and twenty two are allowed to promote their bids the delegations are gathering in zurich where the winners will be announced on thursday russia is fighting with england spain and portugal for the right to host one of the planet's biggest sporting events in eight years they will present their bids on wednesday the u.s.

civilian deaths during april's uprising in the central asian state several of former top officials including ex-president back here for being tried over claims they ordered the military to open fire on protesters trying to force the government's resignation almost one hundred were killed but was eventually forced to flee the country leaving the interim government to deal with months of unaddressed but despite the tensions country's new parliament agreed to form a unity government following october's election u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is to do to visit kyrgyzstan at this week journalist and back to what it's kind of told me earlier about possible reasons for today's explosion outside a government building. there were several versions of this today secretary of the security council of kyrgyzstan he told that there is some nation separate groups as he called it separatist group which is behind it but he couldn't mention what
exactly group is behind that they're also like. several. opinions about this concerning international terrorist groups again as officials so they for example mentioned the union of islamic jihad that can be behind that they also mentioned islamic movement of uzbekistan that could be behind that and they also said that today's blast in bishkek is linked with yesterday's events when the police was trying to capture people who were having some guns and bombs with some storage in one of the also districts and they eventually had to kill them. marty is coming to you live from moscow now let's take a look at some other stories from around the world this hour and a british students are gathering for a nationwide day of action in protest against government plans to raise university tuition fees police or thought urge them to avoid the violence that has marked earlier demonstrations increased to university fees is part of the government's

quite important metric moment when some factors first of all it's a military conflict between so and not been career and of course there are problems concerning the european countries some european countries like spain and portugal the european union is supposed to provide some economic and financial support for countries like spain and portugal so the thing is the question is whether this support will be sufficient and well whether the funds aimed at this problem will be sufficient the most interesting subject through the end of the year easley's talks all the while and telecoms interest in a tokamak rate this because practically all of them have a certain upside potential to the valuation within that for the last telecom what else of course is utility stocks so is the modes into regional distribution companies all of them are quite interesting kind of price levels and most of them

ambitions the i.m.f. and the rest of the european union are now standing behind the irish government the question remains however what is the future for the irish banks because in the past they were very large they did a lot of international business particularly in the u.k. and my own view is that's over that we will have to see a significant contraction in the activities of the irish banks and they will have to go back to being essentially local domestic banks because this adventure that they went on overseas was a failure so to me but i'll be back with more stories in announced time.
