the leaders of the world's biggest emerging economies come together in a bid to gain a bigger role in global affairs. hammering out a response to economic inequalities and interference in libya these are what dominate the meeting of brazil russia india china and south africa all the details from the chinese island of piled up in a few moments. facebook twitter and panic buttons the u.s. uses technology to spread democracy in the arab world but are they your intentions
really so innocent. pakistan demands the u.s. cuts its activity in the country as relations soured by drone attacks and civilian deaths is there a lowest level since nine eleven. leytonstone n b b p roth said some of the we're getting reports from rolls nafta and b.p. may third by month the deadline to complete that sheriff's hold and the arctic exploration deal strongly opposed by b.p.'s kiran kate. of the russian capital you're watching r.t.m. arena josh welcome to the program the world's emerging again i'm joined say they have reached common ground in their push for reforming international monitoring
institutions the leaders of russia brazil india china and south africa the so-called brics have also the cried the use of force in libya it's all part of the our efforts to gain greater clout in global affairs are just as our cilia in the chinese resort of salvia for us were the gatherings taking. these are five countries really just want greater influence in two made for us first economically they really want to see a reform in the financial model that exists right now in order to favor developing countries countries given their significance in the global dynamics another area is politically of course we see that in the past three years this is their third meeting they've become more bold in expressing a united front when it comes to global affairs global issues that lead to president is that if he himself had said that it is more effective for these countries in this block to go for example to the g. twenty with a unified front on issues it is more effective that's the word that he use now is going to the economic issues that they have been hammering out they do want to see
a broad based currency reform system ok we have china really wants a push for the want as an alternative to the u.s. dollar we have had heard talks of this for some time now especially since the crisis began another issue that they keep bringing up is they're very worried about the fluctuation in commodity prices food prices for example wrong with cereals all basic necessities for these economies to develop to thrive and they're saying that the western economies in trouble and the u.s. economy are the cause of these fluctuations so they're they're saying that in order to balance this out to solve this they want more say in the i.m.f. in the world back to reflect their need to reflect their position if this is their contribution especially to the global economy. so eight brics countries have a common approach to the reform of the international monetary fund and the bank we discussed the new system to reform it on meeting we've reached a united position on this issue is what is bringing down the volatility of gold
prices and cultural products libya has really been at the forefront of the talks when it comes to politics they really have very strong words saying that they really do not agree and they do condemn the use of force and the intervention in libya we know that to at least brazil russia india china. to abstain from voting for that u.n. resolution to allow the airstrikes while south africa deferred in favor but still the consensus right now that we're hearing is that they are really now perry happy with what is going on there. deal not like other brics countries russia is deeply concerned with the situation in libya and the civilian deaths we think the problem is should be sold through dialogue not force we appreciate the mediation efforts of the african union and the south african president and i'm not sure we get in the gist of this is that the power of these there's a shift in the balance of power moving away from western countries into this take a look at the story followed by my colleague. while the old world order may be
pumping money down the drain on war in libya the new world order is fighting battles that can be worn on the world's money and trade markets brazil russia india china and this year's new kid on the block south africa have gathered on the chinese island of hainan to talk business and it's not just about economy it's about politics as well though the brics countries do put a heavy emphasis on economic issues broader political questions such as the situation in northern africa and the middle east are also going to be hot topics for discussions the british council stairs holds or un resolution was very wise in terms of we're not going to get involved in this mess in fact when the french and the british were drafting the resolution there were serious objections from the floor countries brazil russia and china traditionally it was always the u.s. and major western nations like france and germany playing the leading roles in politics
and economy but if you take into consideration the ongoing financial crisis and the fact that brics countries comprise more than half of the world's population and pull in almost a quarter of the world's g.d.p. it becomes obvious that a certain geopolitical shift in power is in progress or that there. several reasons these. you wrote as we all know all this absolutely economically politically has no it's lord stick you know. it's a fearful continent our countries there are have been less affected by the crisis than have the european countries the united states and these are countries that are going to continue to grow. if not rapidly and least moderately. the rest of europe and the united states seems to be mired in crisis european leaders themselves admit to losing stable ground in recent years everything that we have
taken for granted for two centuries american and european dominance to the point to which most of the world's manufacturing goods most of the world's exports most of the world's investment was done in these countries it is no longer a fact so it seems europe and the us are finally beginning to understand the emerging power of the brics nations i think the western countries is already. the strength of greeks economy is. expanding what was. now twenty and it is within the g twenty really the brics countries have been. struck city which has been very effective i certainly think that there would be changes in the economic architecture i think that's inevitable as these countries grew up while the western power houses continue pounding away on regimes they find
undesirable a new economic and political architecture is emerging and these five countries are keen to prove they're not just another brics in the world but it goes quality sonia china. diplomats from an international contact group on libya are calling for colonel gadhafi to step down and let. the people determine their future representatives from the u.n. a u.n. arab league met in qatar on wednesday to begin rebels and also made their first appearance at the summit a group called the gadhafi regime and said he's presence threatened any resolution of the crisis that's going to rethink the country for about two months and other afterward to forge an end to the civil war will be made later on thursday in cairo meanwhile the u.s. is training as a government activist from the middle east and north africa on how to spread democracy with the help of technology but as r.t. has guided to come reports there might be a hidden agenda. the u.s. is providing high tech help with the innovations for anti-government activists in
a number of countries throughout the world one of the latest developments is the panic button according to the state department the application can be uploaded on activists cell phones should they be detained the software instantly raises the contact group in their phones and sends a warning alert signal to other activists sounds great one push of a button and it's all gone probably mungo's thanking the u.s. government for the quick knowledge you are going to be drug dealers and terrorists but american officials of course claim the best of intentions saying the innovation is to protect hold them up or see forces in other countries to help use the technologies more effectively the u.s. has organized training sessions or thousands of activists the one held jews weeks ago in the middle east including anti-government campaigners from the fair egyptian syria and lebanon and as the newly trained and equipped activists return home the
u.s. is once they department official put it counts on the ripple effect for an interference doesn't have to be a military invasion a bombing campaign or you know some kind of special operation on the ground in that country it can also be the training and funding and this. support given to individuals who then promote those foreign interests and that's one of the newer strategies that the u.s. government has successfully been executing in different countries around the world that it doesn't consider subordinate to their agenda and it's a way to cure it suddenly it's it's harder to detect it it's harder to do now and search and it can often be more effective the u.s. perceives the internet and social networking platforms as needed poole's for spreading democracy and pumps millions of dollars into developing systems to help people in the middle east and china get around internet blocking firewalls but at the same time american companies provide bahrain saudi arabia and kuwait with the technology to effectively block websites when the us government purports to be
spreading democracy it's simply a sham it's a pretense it's a lie the goal of u.s. foreign policy is to put its people in public office and in foreign countries the us military has recently launched an online management program which enables it to generate multiple fake identities on social networks the false personas are designed to contribute to the flow of conversations on facebook twitter and other websites people are using social media for cyber warfare i mean that's what we're going to see more more and more of a thing from from whether it's governments or non-state actors are going to try to find ways to use the internet and social media to gain an advantage in their own battle the recent turmoil in libya suggests orchestration of twitter with fake users only around five percent of lidia's have access to the internet and the
number of twitter users there is so small that analysts couldn't even calculate it yet in february this year a surge of libyan twitter accounts of peer reporting in english and virtually all begging for intervention really know. since the beginning of the war but. look it's still don't go back so it's looted it but it is so go people go check this essential. take all this coverage will be here at face value which is the role. that you trained activists provided with panic buttons another technologies scores of false identities on the internet spreading certain ideas the u.s. says it's all about promoting democracy but do these declared intentions justify direct interference in other countries the mess that affairs i'm going to check out reporting from washington r.t. . relations between the us and its ally pakistan in the fight against al qaida seem
to be on a brink of collapse covert cia operations drone attacks and civilians deaths have prompted islamabad to rebuke washington and demand it reduces its presence in the country we have a national reports from the pakistani capital. here in islamabad officials say the relations between the u.s. and pakistan are today and it's war since nine eleven and there are many reasons behind these material ration a case in point is that of raymond is a cia spy who shot to pakistan is in brode daylight earlier this year claiming they were trying to rob him this incident exposed huge concerns over the activity of the u.s. private security firms similar to those operations and iraq artist claim the real work was on neutralizing the car drees nuclear arsenal which is to be part of the
world's peace largest pakistani officials here in islamabad say they have no idea how many u.s. contractors are apparently functioning in pakistan and what their identities are nor their purposes and unacceptable situation the u.s. obsession with firing drones into pakistan also thrust and to critical to destabilize the situation in pakistan targeted militants in the northern part of pakistan near its border with afghanistan march seventeenth drone strike is reported to have killed forty innocent civilians prompting month long break by the us pakistani officials warn that drones are strengthened not only anti american sentiment but also to military sentiment in this sensitive region making it increasingly hard to justify the continuing terror but his trans prime minister
in an interview with art he confirmed that u.s. drone strikes are creating more problems rather than solutions in fighting terror. the problem. is not in fear. strategy or political strategy. work different programs it's also worth saying that despite u.s. immunity undermining the pakistani government's top officials here in the capital are keen to smooth it over divisive issues to stress the key point at a stable pakistan is in the interests of all written option r t islamabad pakistan . and you know as yet you know more on our web site r t dot com features analysis and in-depth stories for you around the clock including where the race for the crown on the horizon just who will be doing the running both presidents get it and prime minister who would have neither confirm nor deny they'll be standing. there

a heart attack his sons have been jailed at a cairo prison where a number of the regime's former leaders are being held the mubarak's will appear before a judge next tuesday for questioning over his ations of corruption abuse of power and the killing of protesters. a suicide bomber has killed ten people at a meeting of tribal elders in the afghan pakistan border those killed include five children as well as a key local ally of president karzai seven people were also injured the taliban which is heavily active in the province denied responsibility for the attack claiming the victims had their own enemies. veto in parliament has voted for justice reform which would cut the length of many trials in and out of bribery case against the prime minister as part of a broader review program into the judicial system started by justice minister. who the premier has told his likely successor but critics say it is
a plan to keep silvio berlusconi out of jail. now facing four cases including one for pain or sex with underage prostitutes. more than half of children in russia suffering from rare forms of hereditary illnesses die at an early age without ever getting any financial or medical help from the government the huge cost of the treatment they need is normally impossible for parents to meet the problem is the money's available but it's not easy to access it as a son a boy who now reports. they're both the same age billie when one country and they have the same debilitating condition the only difference between them is that one was born in the capital and another one lives in a small town and there's this zip code lottery it's already defined who have gov leave and who will die live on what some others ask me if it's all worth it all this expensive treatment and the nerves they told me look he's turned he's unable
to talk and still wears diapers what's the point of spending so much in his treatment but i love him regardless of what he was diapers or not i just love him the way here's this sort of prussians is pursuing mothers of children with the hunter syndrome all the time but only because these genetic condition is impossible to cure but even more so because treating it is prohibited really expensive so expensive that for many years children in russia countries syndrome didn't stand a chance of living to middle age that is until sneezed and mothers like her forced moscow thirty to pay for treatment yet the russian constitution doesn't say that if the treatment is expensive and shouldn't be provided or god if a child was unfortunate to be born in a small town he should be abandoned to allow nature to take its course. yes this is exactly what's happening with the two hundred fifty children contras syndrome in russia less than a half are receiving lifesaving drugs forty year old volodya is not one of them the
build up of toxins that his body's unable to recycle has left him unable to walk and talk of the last few months has been rapidly losing his side and hearing a lot is treatment is a three hundred to cost more than eight hundred thousand dollars that's an exorbitant amount that could offer favored dozens or even hundreds of people with less complicated conditions but with well this money well it may not live to see the next summer the saddest thing. all of that apart from his mom nobody seems to care about that even my husband left her when he learned of their son's disability and local authorities refused to help citing the lack of money but he larry is thankful for small mercies bodies still alive and if it comes hope. i'm happy just to recap and see him breathing sometimes he smiles and it's the greatest gift for me i know the treatment is expensive and i know this money could help me and the
children but he didn't choose his condition and he also deserves to live the russian president recently suggested that the hunter syndrome be added to the list of illnesses treated exclusively at the expense of the federal budget and move many in the medical community say is long over due but. there are between six thousand and eight thousand. and the treatment for many of them missed you either nonexistent or too expensive and the rarity of the illness definitely shouldn't be a criteria for providing medical assistance to these kids and so much pain and then title to treatment just like children with food or chickenpox bursting bubbles is something that these mothers have longer used to when they give birth to their children they all dreamt of them becoming someone great and it was only after the chilling diagnosis they realized their children were just that great. artsy moscow. a look now at what's happening in the world of business you is here
with us in just. hello and welcome to business l a t thanks for joining us rosneft and b.p. may extend by a month the deadline to complete the strategic according to the better mr newspaper they were majors are reported to need more time to complete talks with b.p. the russian partners and its joint venture team k d p n a russian shareholders in ten k.v. won an injunction claiming the deal between b.p. and ross never contradicts. hold agreement process and b.p.
has so far failed to find a compromise on a price for a stake in t.n. k b p well he's a lawyer and that reports now from. initially the progress this was good there's a compromise could be found but as the deadline looms closer optimism has faded among industry participants there's been much speculation in the press about how to resolve the standoff between b.p. and its russian partners in t.n. k.b. but so far no clue from either side confirming the dream is one possibility is that b.p. might buy out our praxis remember the russian consortium of shareholders that b.p. doesn't have spare cash floating around following the massive clean up operation in the gulf of mexico the wall street journal is reporting that b.p.'s thinking of selling outs but that would mean losing a substantial revenue stream meanwhile a call is threatening to sue b.p. for ten billion dollars for excluding them from the arctic exploration deal however this says what turns out today will be an uncomfortable day for b.p.
management shareholders in london are enraged by the mess the company's made space over the rossoneri deal and the gulf of mexico oil spill management can expect a hostile reception and protest voting. the five member bloc of the world's largest emerging economies is gathering in china at the meeting of the so-called brics brazil russia india china and south africa is seen as an attempt to develop a unified approach to global economic challenges and there have been some doubts on whether russia should be in the club given its different level of development but jacob morgan stanley believes russia is a good fit rusher. and industrial or is a couple of generations ago and that's sort of pork for me other brics you tend to have your population growing population and much lower incomes for capital but russia is the and it's got huge resources and it's got great potential so in
the sense of being an economy that could grow for state and has great potential but needs to undertake fundamental structural reforms to achieve the kind of prosperity you see in the developed world i think russia has a lot in common with other brics. let's look at how the markets are performing low personal computer sales worldwide and an overnight rise in the yen a sending job any stocks downward then result nuclear crisis is also adding to the negative pressure on the market in hong kong stocks edged cautious trade ahead of friday's inflation data from china and if your stocks and property developers are broadly declining and made lingering concerns over their price and future demand in moscow the r.c.a.'s index ended flat and the my sense fresh hundred percent higher on wednesday. a consolidation taking place on the russian market is set to continue on thursday and tom monday in front of creature explains why. the market will be digesting the results of. the u.s.
department of energy industry later for crude and the extent to which that will drive expectations of rising and falling demand in the u.s. so it will still be about oil right any reaction in the oil prices. will lead to a correction potentially i think in russia next year also there were only one day in france or chinese inflation data as inflation expectations rise the market begins to price in. chinese monetary policy and that happens under serious selling away from from risk and i could be prepared for russian or chinese. hot on the heels of buying troika dialog investment companies that are good looking to expand that the bank plans to take over the international unit of australia's adult banking group although david and i got from very nice capital billie's doesn't need to rush into foreign reserves. and one hundred are get a spare because more than enough in russia given the size of the potential of the
russian economy so overall franchise and so large so there's a there's a lot more to manage on the liver and sperm bank which are i think there's a healthy debate about the potential success they would have beyond looking at what's going. on to form austrian but looking at the east european side of the business there is some toys clearly from a business point of view with russia in the former soviet union i would like to jump on and say it would be a positive negative because you know we don't know what's going to happen so works that works and doesn't work everybody will get over it i think the same is with these european opposition it's small so it's a big success great if it doesn't work from a verse from point of view it's ok. that's out his business some day join us for more next hour and of course you can always log on to our web site that's.
