expedition to the bottom of the earth on. the. last one of the lessons of the libyan stalemate minutes against a u.n. action on syria which is pretty heavily pushed right now by the u.k. in front. of a draft resolution against syria is being discussed for the first time behind closed doors at the united nations that story from new york coming up in a few minutes. russia's envoy to libya meantime says it's clear both gadhafi government on the opposition see talking not fighting is the only way to end the country's civil war. and britain's growing atomic appetite believes experts to worry over a possible nuclear nightmare in which terrorists target the country's energy

facility. also in our business and while is up more than two dollars a barrel as opec decides to leave production levels unchanged join me in twenty minutes time from a. very good evening from moscow it's ten pm wednesday night and now you're watching the artsy international news channel with me kevin now in first france and britain to put forward a draft resolution to be u.n. security council later wednesday condemning the syrian government's crackdown on govern stray sions the u.k.'s prime minister announced a move in response to months of violent unrest against president assad's rule that is one important as across the latest developments in new york for us tonight. what is expected to happen is that there will be closed door consultations and all fifteen members of the security council will look over this draft resolution that
2:02 pm
will be presented by france and britain in this draft resolution there will be a condemnation reportedly condemnation against syria the draft also calls for accountability over the ongoing violence the draft also calls for humanitarian aid to be allowed into syria to help any of those people that have been injured in the ongoing unrest and according to what's been reported this draft presented by by two european countries urges other countries not to supply weapons to damascus though in the meantime the u.s. and its western allies is also putting together another draft resolution that reportedly calls for serious concern or expresses serious concern over syria's lack of cooperation with inspectors from the international atomic energy agency so this is one two punch of course this coming following months of unrest that have
2:03 pm
been taking place in syria some human rights organizations say that more than one thousand people people have been injured but experts however say that what is taking place in syria is a civil conflict that required that does not require and prohibits actually any kind of international involvement without russia and china coming on board there's no chance of any resolution being passed in the security council russia and china are both veto wielding members they they have expressed several times that they would not support any kind of resolution or harsh statements against syria this of course following what is taking place with libya russia has expressed the fact that some countries western countries european in the u.s. have extended beyond measures that were that were put out in the resolution against . libya that allowed for a no fly zone and according to the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov he says that more diplomatic measures should be used with respect to syria because the last
2:04 pm
thing the international community needs is to slide into another conflict because as publishing your course when it comes to the proposal to consider syria in a similar way as was applied to the libyan situation in which the security council and international community have already been conned. we believe that diplomacy should be aimed at resolving problems politically and not to create conditions for new armed conflicts we should support the process of national reconciliation on accord and constructive peacekeeping rules for neighboring states rather than trying to pass more and more of solutions which will fight mean siding with one of the parties in an internal political conflict meanwhile the british prime minister david cameron has said that any country that veto is against war does not vote for this resolution that is being proposed against syria it will be on their conscious so obviously a poignant statements trying to put countries in the corner and i attempt to garner
2:05 pm
support whether or not that will get support of provoking trees from supporting. will work remains to be seen but of course we'll stay on top of the story and keep our viewers abreast of what happens but is correspondent in new york where there was london a paris call for this resolution against syria the u.n. atomic watchdog also launched an investigation into whether a syrian facility destroyed by israel in two thousand and seven was in fact a nuclear site middle east analyst and political activism to me told me the timing to suggest and ask is could face pressure from two different directions. but there probably might use it as a tool in order to impose sanctions so if they want to impose sanctions the justification for the sanctions will not be the manner in which the syrian regime has been dealing with the uprising or with the demonstrators but rather the atomic project there the syrians. are alleged to have been involved in well this seems to be two parallel lines but somebody might have intended from behind the scene an
2:06 pm
alternative approach so if the un security council resolution for some reason doesn't work then we can go along the other route. that was some to me the director of the institute of islamic political thought talking about pressure being put on syria right now after talks with opposition rebels and colonel gadhafi cousin russia's envoy trying to broker a cease fire in libya says both sides want to nonmilitary way out now however fighting continues in the city of misrata and nato still dropping bombs on the capital while calling for a post gadhafi era artie's many financial reports from tripoli. precious peace mediator. gallup has indeed visited leave to persuade warring sides to start talking his mass for that purpose both opposition leaders in the libyan rebel stronghold and karzai and his cousin and closest ally in cairo as he has said to
2:07 pm
better understand both sides demands and position and following these meetings has come to the media to say but both sides taffy and the rivals agree and understand that there is no any way to end this crisis through military actions through the war and that this conflict could only be resolved through negotiations mr mandela that the rebels. would be ready for that. it is going to to have a clear picture of the positions we see. cousin presence of the political elite in tripoli when things. are well aware that the current situation in libya cannot be resolved by military means in the country. and the. only way to describe this. in just a few days we've seen
2:08 pm
a dramatic intensification of nato strikes on the libyan capital tripoli on tuesday night launched at the most intensive strikes since the beginning of operation libyan government spokesperson has come to the journalists saying that at least thirty one people have been killed in sixty strikes and we can expect even further intensification to their defense ministers of a meeting in process and just ahead of this secretary general rasmussen has said that he would use this opportunity to appeal to the countries to demand more contribute to the fight against gadhafi and just days ago they started for the first. time using attack helicopters in this mission meanwhile what we are hearing from the other side of the frontline from bin ghazi from the libyan rebel waters shows us that the radicals are frustrated with the natives actions and frustration
