culture is that so much different and there's a huge percentage of the power of mind in the market crude blockade and the turning off of the taps as the united states and the e.u. again sanction iran iran is also threatening to impose. down the official ante up location on the phone called touch from the. life on the go. video on demand. gold coast's and r.s.s. feeds now with the palm of your. machine on the

dot com. history of fighting soros damascus russia proposes to host peace talks in moscow between the syrian government and the opposition. it could stop supplying oil to some states in response to sanctions against its nuclear program which is currently undergoing a un inspection. broken piece of glass is not the broken heads that the police are inflicting on the occupy movement. the heavy handed police response to as he called for protests in california is echoed across the atlantic where british officers are also accused of excessive use of force. me to brussels for the first summit this year against the symbolic backdrop of
12:01 pm
dirty protests and a general strike in belgium live reaction on that story a little later here on r.t. . international news and comment live from moscow this is our team syria is staring at the real possibility of deadly violence taking hold of the very center of the nation's capital rebel fighters have been locked in intensive battles with government forces in the suburbs surrounding damascus and an invitation from russia to host moscow based peace talks between syria's authorities and the opposition has been accepted by the assad government bodies or for as the latest from damascus. but we've seen the situation escalating dramatically over the past couple of days now over the weekend the suburbs were embroiled in a heavy clashes between the two sides in fact in damascus people were waking up
12:02 pm
yesterday to the sounds of gunfire and shelling in those areas very very alarming indeed some of the reports that were coming from those areas and certainly the response from the government to the free syrian army taking control of some of those suburbs has been a strong well we've had reports of tanks going into those areas and the death toll on both sides extremely high as well and of course this comes on the back of the arab league monitoring mission saying that they had whole says the mission for the time being is that the remaining observers that are here in the country they hadn't really seemed to recover from that decision last week of the gulf states to withdraw their monitors well it's hard to say really exactly what the future of the mission now is there's a little bit of a sense that it's dead in the war so now what we saw at the end of the month of course as they presented their reports i was interesting is the details of that has
12:03 pm
made note of abuses on both sides that was what had been mentioned and on the back of that it was discussed possibly increasing the numbers on the ground and making the mission stronger as well as the other the housing what we saw was the decision for the goal say to withdraw them all this is now today russia's foreign ministry has said that it has put forward the offer of using moscow as a place to hold a reconciliation talks between the two sides pursuing some sort of resolution to the situation through dialogue again because what we've seen with the arab league decision to go to the u.s. the fears are that there's a real close now international and parents the international involvement adding possibly we could see the conflict get even more violent even more militarized and that's not what i. well once this is they said the last few days have been an escalating situation. well for more developments in syria are now joined by dr
12:04 pm
piece of political analyst from jordan well there are conflicting reports from the syrian opposition at the moment some suggesting the opposition has rejected talks involving the government others suggest they are actually thinking about it so do you think they will come to the table and talk eventually. well you see we can talk about the opposition as one bloc i think that we have many oppositions as you know now the internal opposition i'm sure that they would ultimately welcome such an opportunity to open talks with the regime. the rest of the opposition especially those stationed outside syria i think they would reject. not only day but those who backed the region as you know. many of the opposition groups outside syria supported by gulf states or by turkey or by by western countries i think that this external opposition will even not only reject it but will try to.
12:05 pm
disturb. this effort this initiative. are you saying that turkey and other western countries are trying to persuade the elements of the opposition to reject those peace talks and if so what. was the reasoning well i think they have their own geo political aims in the area and in syria in particular . the west and they're always countries and even turkey i'm sure they have their own ambitions they have their own vision of a future middle east and i think that syria is pivotal in this respect so i think yeah i don't think they want peace i don't like russia which is of course we appreciate russia's initiative because obviously russia has emerged as a force of peace and understanding but this this does not apply to other countries particularly to the western countries and to the oil countries and to turkey i
12:06 pm
think they have real political aims they have two political reasons for. feeding the conflict in syria i think they don't want that they're not interested in the form nor are they interested in democracy or freedom all they're interested . is to disturb the situation to weaken the iranian syrian lebanese alliance i think that's what they're aiming at and i think that what they're aiming at is some sort of a new middle east that suits their purposes you mention russia moscow's position indicating that it is really trying to encourage peace talks also saying it will not support the draft u.n. resolution proposed by the e.u. and arab states which many say implies future foreign intervention who do you think well judging by what you're saying do you think that russia will be overruled and will not achieve anything over this and will be hard pressured by the west another state well i don't think so i well i think that this is
12:07 pm
a good initiative on blushes part but i don't think it will succeed precisely because of this external opposition i've been talking about the internal opposition the opposition i call the. progressive opposition inside syria i'm sure will ultimately. agreed to such a bold initiative unfortunately the rest of the opposition those who are organizing the the armed gangs i don't think that they will that it is in their interest at the moment to accept such a throw in another observation made by analysts just very briefly the west you're saying would like to see some sort of regime change there in damascus not wanting peace because not only what's going on syria but also what's going on in iran and that would actually weaken serious support for iran bearing in mind the pressures we're seeing there between the west and iran do you think that's another objective just very briefly. oh yeah yeah well you see the way i look at it. i think that
12:08 pm
after the military pull out of the american forces from iraq. it seems to me that the americans want to. insert the opposed forces in the area and they want to weaken the link between syria iran and lebanon in particular so what i mean is that it is a message from the americans we are pulling out of iraq but that does not mean that we pulled out of the area if you think that you can you can actually move freely in your part of the world where you are mistaken we are still we have many tools to disrupt your. celebration that's the way i look at it ok dr. very interesting here thank you for joining us live. thank you. well still ahead for you on t.v.
12:09 pm
just over a month before russia's presidential. prime minister. as the presidential candidate for widespread economic reforms and the occupy movement spills onto the streets of london with police accused of going over the top during a crackdown on protesters those stories still to come for you. iran as well to halt oil exports to some countries for up to fifteen years despite his parliament spending a debate on a complete ban on crude supplies to europe it would be in retaliation to the even posed embargo on iranian oil due to come into full effect the summer russia's foreign minister says tehran threat shows how unilateral sanctions can often backfire. to. russia has firmly held the opinion that in most cases sanctions are not only ineffective but also counterproductive the current situation yet again confirms the old law to every action there is an equal reaction
12:10 pm
iran's announcement was made in response to be european union's decision to ban the purchasing of iranian oil by even member states. name on iran's nuclear program which the target of e.u. sanctions is being scrutinized by u.n. inspectors to run is offered i.a.e.a. officials the chance to extend the mission and said it was ready to answer any question to prove its atomic ambitions of peaceful but some experts suggest the only report western states want to see is one that justifies a military buildup in the region. made up of inspectors they don't necessarily control politically but i think what the united states walls is some kind of well state but you know which then you balance on a balanced way to. the next stage i think what we are witnessing here is is a build up cause of military call for
12:11 pm
a generation we have a massive reply was of u.s. military hardware troops going into israel to be stationed in israel also going to wait. naval. naval forces in the. ocean go there's no i well i would describe as why the actual war the issue of nuclear weapons. nuclear weapons is a red herring but it is a red herring which could well. iran for its part seems confident it can withstand the building international pressure the country's interior minister believe sanctions will end up hitting the countries who impose them not to run his exclusive interview with r.t. is coming up in the next hour he has a preview point. i think. i believe they've made a big mistake as this action results in turbulence for the oil and energy markets
12:12 pm
this very fact it can result in oil price growth in these condition is the west should expect the drop in the euro rate and the euro market or this new decision will result in further economic problems which as we can see have affected them already and so far they've been unable to find solutions with the decisions taken today by the west unilaterally will result in the escalation of their own economic problems. e.u. leaders are gathering for their first summit of twenty twelve with a sense of deja vu greece is still the center of discussion the pressure is still on athens to overhaul its economy with the german finance minister warning it won't receive a second financial lifeline if it doesn't correspond to reports now from brussels. they're supposed to talk more about the fiscal compact they had agreed upon at the last summit as well as push for the european stability mechanism which is the permanent bailout fund we will put in place now in june instead of july these are
12:13 pm
the official informal topics but greece is still hanging over their heads especially since there have been war of words between greece and germany with the germans are calling for moving taxing and spending power over to brussels and the german finance minister saying that the europeans are willing to support greece as long as greece actually implements the this issue instead of just talking about it all the greeks had responded to that but with a lot of still to be saying that this is definitely out of the question especially since it's a matter of national sovereignty and one former economist who's now the greek education minister who actually called it quote unquote a product of a sick imagination so you can you can tell that the greeks are definitely upset with the german suggestion now why did the german suggested this is because of that ongoing talks between the greeks and their creditors it's still dragging it's been stalling for some time now the greeks need to strike a deal with the private sector and their creditors asking the banks for example to
12:14 pm
write down some of the greek back to take some losses about fifty to sixty percent of losses this is in order for greece to get the second tranche of its bailout which it needs to pay some debts in march because if they don't they will technically default belgium is on a general strike a lot of walking and cycling today because all the metros down no buses and one of the airports is also closed the unions are protesting against the government of cutting their benefits slashing retirement age also raising the retirement age rather so they're complaining that the workers are bearing the brunt and the enterprises are not getting here at. city that well for some insight on the subject joined by paul not least a member of the european parliament from the u.k. independence party. leaders are looking for ways to boost jobs and restore economic growth well how do you cheve growth austerity measures which surely hamper growth. well fact is you can't i mean it's as simple as that really and what's going on in
12:15 pm
there at the moment a small committers they're trying to put a lot of pressure on greece and this idea that the germans have that you can almost put a budget commissioner nathanael who will oversee their budgets set taxes is quite frankly an affront of democracy the oldest democracy in the world and if i was in athens of the moment i'd be out on the streets demonstrating as well but greece is crucial to all of this even yesterday prime minister says they were on the edge of bankruptcy surely it's important for everyone to rally behind greece and throw money at the problem in order for the rest of the eurozone to survive if we could europeans with our greece the fall out of the auto all together bull look this is not a multi phenomena a couple of months ago now my party leader met with the council of presidents meeting and said quite clearly to why won't you allow greece to fall out of the or and i think your answer sort of everything she said we know that if greece goes all the countries will go to the fact is that this is a political project it's not
12:16 pm
a multi-year nomics what would make economic sense is for greece to come out of the yard of all together go back into the drachma get a economy kickstarted what about the idea of fiscal control though is is that the right way forward to stop those profit countries over spending and misusing their expenditure and and tax revenue i mean that is surely the way forward isn't that the right route to take. i think it's a an affront to democracy and the scary thing here that you have is once you start thinking with democracy and trying to change things i think you're on a very slippery slope indeed and what's happening at the moment over here is that the e.u. is really showing its teeth showing what it's all about it doesn't want to listen to the people what they're doing at the moment in the building behind me is they're talking about an intergovernmental agreement and this will go into a primary e.u. law through secondary legislation which means that the people can be bypassed there will be referendums across the continent particularly in ireland where there should be a referendum on this and what will happen is they will bypass the people and it will go straight into a huge more and they will get exactly what they want but it is
12:17 pm
a complete affront to democracy affront to democracy we're seeing democracy happening right in the moment and we in brussels under your very nose where we're seeing a general strike happening in protests surely we're going to see more as being promised in the future governments will have to listen to the people when they're. well i'd like to think so and i'd like to see referendums right across europe on this issue particularly in my own country were david cameron is performing to you to say there was a veto rich or so-called veto by him where he said that the e.u. institutions couldn't be used because this isn't a treaty it's an intergovernmental agreement he's now going back on that and this whole intergovernmental agreement will have the use of the institutions and call including the courts of justice including the european commission again this is typical you where it's all backroom deals that smoke and mirrors and quite frankly it is an affront to the market see because the deals are to be taken back in the building behind me a quite frankly an attendant to bypass the people of your door.
