face. being used against another so-called rogue state iran. with the deputy prime minister of israel. you know what we i have dan meridor deputy israeli prime minister and minister of intelligence and atomic energy so thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. to be with you the million dollar question is israel preparing for war with you when the one thing we should not speak on a war with iran i don't think that war is something one discusses in good families in public i think it's wrong hearing an issue is the most important issue we're dealing with the nuclearization of iran becomes the most important issue of
international politics we are. trying as much as we can with the rest of the world i would say to stop iran from becoming nuclear and yet today has been a lot of war with craig for much of israel's political leadership but on the other hand people like yourself have come on record and said that you will not support a war with iran so obvious see disagreement in the israeli political end the issue of iran is of great importance i think that. if there is determination and resolve and persistence in the world that is interesting here we feel a very broad coalition unprecedentedly broad all the arab world but syria. most of the west i believe other countries were russia was on it two years ago in the u.n. security council we think have enough leverage all of us together to convene the rain's going to be heavier and higher price with every month that passes if you don't stop this. attempt to get nuclear but none of the rounds critics including as
well have given hard facts that prove that iran's intention is to build a nuclear weapon or that it iran is in a way near building a nuclear weapon so why is this so much fear and concern first of all that iran wants to have a nuclear weapons we have no doubt i think that the international atomic energy agency in vienna published a report last november think the head a weapons group the describe the weapons to approach worked why do you take it seriously they really do ship. i mean they openly again and again israel should not exist. it should be removed as a cancer tumor in the middle east but you did admit that ahmed initially had it not saying that iran would wipe israel off the map. will approve israel the concert or is the metaphor but not a different conference he might not have said these words but the content of the rhetoric a lot of statements but all of them in the leadership that is there should not
exist in a two thousand and eight interview at medinah jack was asked that if the palestinian leaders agreed to accept a two state solution could he ran live with that and his answer was that if they agree to that well then they will respect that decision does that not suggest that there is a tiny opening for dialogue or some kind of work between as well any when i hear him again and again i heard him two were three weeks ago. here in my office twenty or thirty statements a piece of others saying you know. that is not legitimate it should not exist it is on the verge of collapse anyway now what is it if not direct threat against our existence iran has not attacked anyone in recent history why would it attack israel if israel did not attack you when iran. has not attacked. directly iran is supplying weapons of the most advanced the kind that they have to
all our enemies be syria be his beloved be promise again and again iran is frightening the saudi arabian government why is that they never take anybody. why is the arab world in turmoil and in such a fear of a new reign in the me nation is always thought to have several hundred nuclear weapons is this not a question of double standards why should israel be allowed to have it whereas iran can't we never said we have nuclear weapons we never said we have we don't react to this the effect but isn't it interesting that all the arab come. is who may think that we have nuclear weapons although i never confirm or deny never said because these or heard it will have it but when they hear iran is going to get it to say if you don't get it we get it isn't that a sign of how to prove the real danger for the stability. peace in this region for these regimes is iran not israel if there was
a strike what would it look like are we talking about some kind of israeli aerial strike all that is will consider sending in ground forces or not speak of a military option at all not in general not in specific terms don't think it's right i think it's not helping us he has not asked i don't speak of it i am very hopeful the functions. will work when sanctions just make it rain or nationalists close rank and support their government more certainty will is there another way to do this if you drop in from the you don't speak of the french of the not to be working what is the over option. iran was. ordered by the security council not to enrich and they go rushing along with the united states is building a missile defense shield in the persian gulf what would be the purpose of this if israel had to attack you when they want speak of an attack on iran israel and i'm not a spokesman for the american. the american defense establishment the american president
but it's interesting that the americans and the arab countries are in full agreement about the development in iran and that it needs to be stopped israel preparing for any rain attack or some kind of way in retaliation needs to defend itself is never ask anybody to defend it is a living in area in which there were many enemies i think that we see very positive trend of arab countries leaving the camp of. denial negation and coming to the good guys came by presidents about signing peace with us king hussein of jordan saying peace the people who became buddhas after them kept the agreement we wish and hope it would be kept longer there have been comments by leading israeli figures that the israeli population is not being told the full consequences of what an attack on iran would mean do you agree with us. i don't
think i should speak on israeli attack on iran i think this is something israeli should not speak oh i'm sorry that some of my colleagues did speak of it or hinted to it i think it's a mistake and i from day one don't speak of it before from people being. clear big big clarity of the object is very for the objectives you run you. stop enrichment stop the building of weapons everything build it and how we do it how we get it we need to be very. balance and. strong and sophisticated when i say we thought only israel it's all those countries we just did a report on how the israeli public is not ready for an attack by event that there aren't any kind of shelters or awareness to get gas masks which begs the question why is the israeli public not being prepared for an attack if there is so much was coming from the government if the countries of the world who are interested in
stopping iran from becoming nuclear or is persistent as you are in asking me questions about this we will win no the is there a clandestine war. no doubt the there is. there are things that are done against syrian nuclear capabilities by all players. from the worth of other countries probably is on the table from with under the table thing for going or not everything should be made public but i think that this is a serious better it's a very serious matter and i think it should be taken care of very seriously and this includes all sorts of actions and i don't speak of war here the united states has said it's against of what event if this remains the situation what israel go it alone we have been used sometimes to stand alone and we through the along with other countries who had to help us a problem type of didn't help us this were the case nine hundred sixty seven when
you were thirty two your guarantees that nobody seemed to find at the time. we had to fight for our own lives and literature for you do it will tell you but operate you have a deal of many countries acting for the thing goal and we as part of a big coalition. well they would not fight for us not surely but if they have the same interests as we have the saudis or the americans or the french or the germans or the russians as it were two years ago if we have a broad coalition it's much better than to be on our own so of course america is an important player in this world as everybody knows and if america says and the president president obama says iran should not be nuclear will not tolerate a nuclear iran will not continue clear on who prevent iran from becoming the it's very important if we look at syria are developments there good or bad for israel
first of all they're very bad for syria. although syria is an enemy they don't like us at all but we're neighbors and we all are human beings and what one sees on the screen syria is horrendous. it's not our business to tell the syrians who should rule this is a different perspective the one that you just spoke of iran syria is the only arab country. and the axis that was built. between iran syria and hezbollah the unholy alliance what i call it this is a very bad axis very dangerous axis. against our thinking thought of the arab countries. in that respect if this alliance between syria and iran is broken this is good for peace for better peace except if a more fundamentalist regime comes to power in syria. i don't know who comes next we have no influence on that. in a productive way if we support somebody maybe it was the treatment because the best
thing for somebody would be to we fight the jews so we are not taking part in that what about israeli egyptian relations particularly in light of the terminations of the gas deal see the egyptian israeli peace treaty has been fined thirty two years ago. thirty three years ago in seventy nine was the most important dramatic change in middle east history it changed at least from a very warlike zone to a much more stable and peaceful area so whoever is in power in egypt after next presidential election we very much hope for the peace treaty is kept i think it's not only our interest i think it as well it is the interests and i think this is one of the most important goals that we have and we wish for the egyptians to have more free regime in better economic situation and keep the agreement with us dan meridor thank you very much for joining us here on r.t.
the headlines on julian assange loses his legal bid against extradition to sweden with fears this is just a pretty new to the wiki leaks founder being counted on the u.s. to face espionage charges. allegations the saudi arabia is suicide bombers to syria's rebels as the new french president threatens military intervention following the. u.s. denies sending special forces just inside north korea but the journalists cover the story says the pentagon is on a damage control mission to save face. time now for the sports with kate.
i don't want the latest forty years and here the headlines. all know about djokovic continues his quest for a maiden french open title after beating the black caps in straight sets to go through two rounds three. while second time russia held to a goal is drawn by lithuania in their second three warm up matches for the upcoming european championships. answering machine alexander ovechkin and his russian team mates florence that life's hockey's world trade feat at an open top bus parade in central moscow. the first of the tennis in paris and while the about djokovic has become the first man to reach the third round as he continues his quest for a laden french open title the top ranked serbian was broken once the last couple of slovenia but otherwise he was hardly a trouble on route to
a six love six four six goal when djokovic is searching preschool straight grand slam title and his first at roland garros after losing in the semifinals three times before the third seed roger federer is currently up against rumania abu dujan big serving punch birdie faces local better and more likely another a wild joe wilson song is pitted against celtic muscles from germany. all over in the women's draw top seed victoria azarenka conceded just two games as the straight open champion trashed german qualifier done a visit my a six one six one in less than an out us open without some studies that needed just over an hour to dispatch american irina antone six one six ball next up real strength is not a you have the better south african chanel she pulls while two thousand and eight champion of each faces shot javier of israel. one on tuesday world number two maria sharapova didn't drop a single game in her opening match the second seed remaining as alexander the bound
two in less than an hour as the in-form russian looks to complete a career grand slam in paris. you know i think i learn more about the game and the point construction and i feel like a moving are better than i did years previously which has helped me a lot in the recovery process within the points so yeah it definitely gives me a lot of confidence for this tournament but just like any other. within this tournament i hope that i improve with every round and get better and whoever's across the net is the person that i have to be. however in the meantime thirteen time major winner serena williams was shell shocked by local horror in virginia. one hundred new levels in the world the americans true way and one set lead to go at four six seven six six three was only said later it was her best ever victory when it was also so his earliest grand slam exit forty seven appearances.
yeah i tried you know i kept going for my shots which you know always works for me so it didn't work out today. you know i just wasn't i made so many hours today which is a game that i've been playing in the past. life. and in the men's draw rafael nadal began his quest for a record seventh french open title and the world number two did it in style a sequence and emphatic six two six two six one victory over italian similarly. i did what i had. it with. less. stress or maybe use them first for rounds in the past so. happy the way i am through the second round i'm happy though how i blend i had that mistake i go back to the bit with. my opinion i was there may well after that.
kind of means i'm full see down the memory also faced a few problems in his first rationale that kept so much into japan last year semifinalists winning six wanted seven five six elf to get into rand two. and we're going to football and russia have followed that last friday's one one draw with you or a guy with a goal a style match against him if you ania in the second of that three warm up friendly spirit two thousand and twelve michael ripple it. was over the final two perpetration matches before heading off to war so to play euro co-host poland russia's game versus the rain it was by far the easier paper starting in place of the edge that they have to play to russia's one one draw with europe what was discussed up work to go after failed but after a hectic start with both sides of the possible it was rarely troubled by the way is looked arctic attack in the middle of the roman shirokov and he got
a nice of will increasingly running the show with neat passing and come work on the ball. alexander kasia call came close on a number of occasions as andrea sheridan but neither seemed to find a way through for him as stubborn defense half time came with russia clearly controlling the game but without anything to show for it. dick advocaat opted to make some changes bring on four players including roman public chinky for close a call. and the second half began pretty much as the first shot ended with russia camping in their opponent's i belittle we knew this was largely a meaningless game having failed to qualify for the upcoming euros but as the game came to an end they managed to hold on to a well deserved draw dick advocaat was rather nonplussed by the end result but was happy lithuania had many. to frustrate his team. last week to say. if you do not give on the present if you are not in the right shape to do that
then that is easy to stay so defensively. for the first alexander because a cough on the other hand blamed the lackluster results a little when his refusal to play properly. i guess they had a different objects of than europe why these guys played football but lithuania didn't do that but roman shirokov put it down to a lack of width in russia's game i. mean everyone understood how they would play we concentrate too much in the midfield when we should have used our flanks. all of russia's early initiative will position this through and you did prove too stubborn to break down the cuts or substitutions at half time also failed to make the necessary difference in the game russia style hitman andrea shaaban who celebrating his thirty first birthday today also failed to find the killing strike to give russia the much needed when now russia only has one game left to prepare for the
euros and that comes against italy which will not be easy to test them being the two thousand and six will champions and this game will be in zurich on friday mark or just go on the on switch. in the meantime alexander ovechkin was the star attraction as russia's triumphant national ice hockey team showed off their latest world championship trophy at an eye and top right through central moscow the washington capitals front along with russia captain in the cool and tells the prize aloft as the rapturous crowd chanted thank you and well done to their heroes russia rushed surprise package slovakia six two in the final earlier this month to finish the championship unbeaten and lay their hands on their third world crown in five years have any malkin was the tournament most valuable player and the victory was also russia's first top accolade under a new coach to lobby a living off the team that targets gold at their home winter olympics in sochi in
twenty fourteen. the victory at the world championships showed the team's court this is the team we intend to build on with its own character and recognize no one knows what will happen. but i'm sure the players will be able to claim the gold mine now made accountable ball in the san antonio spurs to become only the fourth team in n.b.a. history to hold a twenty game winning streak and extend that into the playoffs after beating the oklahoma city thunder one hundred twenty points to one hundred eleven to lead the western conference finals to kill most onside as tony thought the top school the thirty four. it seems him sixteen out of twenty want to tell us the thunder replied with a combined eighty eight points from popping around to wrestle westbrook and james hoffman but it wasn't enough to stop the top scenes getting to laugh in the best of seven series. well told he's been great all year you know he's he's not. been really focused the entire season and you know what he
did tonight we've seen many times before so it's not it's not a surprise but he was excellent he me play dough a fantastic game in a lot of ways. now days off the clock in outside ten seconds in his gold winning one hundred meter run in the czech republic world record holder you saying bolt says he still fully prepared to cause a splash it was london olympics well as part of his preparation for the games the jamaican is next x. to start at the golden god my meeting in rome on thursday and to promote this event the twenty five year old run of the vehicle multi usually busy main shopping street in the italian capital while back on track bolt is due to face compadre a softer panel as well as french hopeful christophe limits and feeling that champion will be asked to prove his target of nine point four seconds is within his but. is never a problem are never stress over things i just i think god grant you so much.
truth so many things that are even if i lose everything because they won't even bother me because i know that i want to focus and that's just to go there because they do great things and i'm confident to myself from our coach that we can put together a program or to work with me to be a champion. and finally russia's current goals in heroin and a customer has been welcomed back home after making history in ukraine last week the twenty five year old became the first russian to claim a two zero win after clinching the title in style at the inaugural gulfstream ladies i'm an event and the first of its kind in kiev just an up or just a final round of seventy eight to finish four shots created overnight leader benedict you saw him and since that victory customer has emerged as russia's biggest hope for the place of the willing thanks in twenty sixteen but she says more young talent could yet qualify for those games. i think we have
a lot of hoops we have very a lot of young kids growing up in very dedicated and we have a very good team of coaches with the russian government to see shiny and the team. very good. for him especially school as well and they've set up a very very good job in his asian very good team of coaches and players. and that's all sports news by some. question is that so much different each musician has the power to find out from the mark when serious many words in the aftermath of an alleged massacre of civilians he was military is warning that continue to try cities in syria could make.
