america closes the net around during a song for the f.b.i. now harassing his contacts in an apparent attempt to gather dirt on the world's most famous whistle. eastern union but he may have putin is looking for some of china's economic fortune cookies moscow and beijing continue to read from the same page when it comes to world politics. and egypt's muslim brotherhood sides with news from a million man protest corner from a barracks execution hoping it will also sweep aside their presidential election rival before anyone even votes. from forces post solid gains as optimism returns to international markets all of these cells investors are about
3:01 am
twenty minutes. from moscow this is r.t. . the latest installment of julian assange show is premiering today here on r.t. with the f.b.i. now apparently among the ranks of loyal viewers the agency is said to have been given the green light to launch a surveillance mission on the prominent whistleblower that everyone in contact with him a number of his guests have been stopped interrogated by agents with one even offered the chance to turn the f.b.i. informant what is going to church again has more on the story. u.s. officials say there is no indictment against julian assange but apparently the u.s. is going after him after all in their quest for evidence they might hear watching the sunday shows here on our t.v. or else how would several of the show's guests end up interrogated by u.s.
3:02 am
officials about the week it leaks founder in this week's episode features one of them that's jeremy zimmerman an internet freedom advocate who's based in friends at the airport traveling from the united states to friends he was stopped by self identified f.b.i. agents and questioned about julian assange the week in leaks website says mr zimmerman was threatened with arrest and imprisonment when he asked about his rights this all happened after his interview with mr r. where they talked cyber security and freedom in the face of ever expanding government surveillance here is a bit of it don't miss the whole thing here and r.t. running all day know that some sites technology enables those also billions of every communication then there is do do the other side of that coin is what we do with it we could admit that for which we called a tactical one there are some indeed some legitimate use investigators investigating the bug. but guys and so on may need under the supervision of the
3:03 am
judicial authority to be able to use. such tools but the question is where to draw this judicial supervision where to go to the control that the citizens can have over the use of those technologies and this is. so there was jeremy and a bit earlier and now the guest of the show internet freedom activists mari mccarthy the co-founder of the icelandic digital freedom society he too will stop to be here for the question by u.s. officials about julian assange he says he was later followed and approached by three u.s. officials in washington late at night and asked to become a new. former sounds like something from the movie as far as the number of people detained or arrested shortly before or after the show might be breaking some television record among other guests there was the president of the bahrain center for human rights and i believe our job was beaten up at bahrain international
3:04 am
airport and held in prison for almost a month after recording an interview with julian assange so what can we expect as if now the u.k. court has also raised mr songes extradition to sweden his lawyers have less than two weeks to contest that decision in sweden he's facing quite thin allegations of sexual assault which reportedly had to do with consensual but unprotected sex but his supporters are saying it's not songes unprotected sex that they're looking into but rather a way to get him to sweden where it would be arguably easier to hand him over to the united states judging by the reports about people being interrogated one might say that the u.s. is building a case against julian assange. where he was later said he said it to the soldiers show here in r.t. starting from eleven thirty g.m.t. . free from prejudices and stereotypes that's how president putin has defined
3:05 am
russia's ties with china i see looks east for the next three days neighbors are seeing eye to eye in major international disputes such as the syrian conflict and show concern about u.s. expansion in the asia pacific region see our share scheme is in beijing for us. well it's not only just visit any just official visit it's a state visit the first one and became the president so if you have some certain details about its protocol because as we know any president of any country can perform only one state visit to any country during his certainly this outlines how important this visit is and for some experts this has already been a declaration of intent and the declaration which is which show that the foreign policy of russia with these new terror will not change and i first went to europe now if you go to china basically the relations between moscow and beijing have been very strong over the past several decades the trade turnover has been reaching one hundred billion dollars in its turn over every year so definitely this is russia's
3:06 am
closest ally not only in terms of economic ties but also on very many international issues as well just particularly the syrian issue within the u.n. security council russia and china seem to have a unified position this visit will be interesting with a lot of on the agenda certainly will be following this visit over two days as it's here and we'll be bringing all the latest details for us every time we get the new information. was that more on that now let's cross to john young chong he's an assistant professor of political science at the national list of singapore thank you for joining us here and i take firstly china and russia's economic ties are developing rapidly with both expanding their national currencies as opposed to the dollar how important do you think that is in times of global economic instability. i think what the two countries are doing is probably to act as a hedge against any instability in the u.s. dollar which is perfectly understandable given the fact that you know the u.s.
3:07 am
economy seems. the recovery seems slightly shaky but i think even then there is it's not possible i think that the two countries have a clean break from the u.s. dollar in part because the chinese yuan as you know is not for me floating and part of its value is sort of. tied with us to now try to has expressed concern over a u.s. plan to sift most of its warships to the pacific region by twenty twenty does beijing have grounds to be worried. if i remember correctly the first statement from the chinese side coming out of the shangri-la dialogue was that they would not see this as a disaster which i guess. it doesn't exactly culch the. us presence in the asia pacific in the most positive of terms but i mean i think. they don't see it as being. necessarily negative all the time and i think you know
3:08 am
they do want to hedge their bets and do the chinese side does and they do want to sort of have some kind of working relationship with the u.s. which i think is important for the for the chinese because if you think about it the chinese sort of get a lot some would say for you right. u.s. presence the fact that the u.s. keeps the ceiling safe the fact that the u.s. is somewhat of a force for stability in the asia pacific and in that sense trying china doesn't have to pay for these kinds of. cases that why is the u.s. increasing its but it's a presence in the area well i think the chinese get some get some certain get something out of it i think the u.s. side on the other hand the. day they do have their view and some of the apprehensions. the direction which the asia pacific is going to see i think a lot of the interest going forward being sort of tight to the asia pacific but i
3:09 am
mean that's a sort of u.s. position which may not be entirely the same as the chinese position they can do a similar situation quite differently for instance talk about that a different visa and data russia and china do seem to see eye to eye when it comes to some international issues like iran and syria what's the main reason behind that . well my own perspective is i think they the chinese and the russians probably you know don't want to see an overly domineering us and which i think is understandable coming from moscow and beijing and i think what the u.s. i think does and to some degree the u.s. with europe with western europe does. seem to be coming down quite strongly in the middle east and in so far as the. russians and the chinese you know have their interest too which are not necessarily congress with those of europe or the u.s. they would probably want to protect those interests now both the chinese president down premier are going to step down at the end of this year and we're in russia
3:10 am
already having a newly elected leader what is likely to change in relations between the two very briefly. i don't think the relationship will change very much in the short term because i think after even after the searching immediate change of and leadership on the chinese side they still have to figure out you know the sort of the second or the second order leaders and on and so there the chinese side will probably have some flux in tone domestically and they and especially probably won't be doing too much on the external front ok we'll leave it there now to our young assistant professor of political science at university and national university of singapore i should say thank you for joining us thank you so much. well that talk to author and so many and from the peterson institute for international economics you think china has all that's needed to run the u.s. economy here's a preview of what's coming up the next hour. at the moment china's g.d.p. for example is smaller than that of the united states that's true. but if you
3:11 am
measure it in terms of purchasing power it's as big as the united states one second china is already the world's largest trade. treaty china is a big net creditor to the work it finances the u.s. and the u.s. is a debtor so it's this combination of the size of the economy the fact the big trader and the fact that it's a creditor confers on it a lot of power bets today and over the next ten fifteen years all these numbers are going to go in china's favor so the china's going to become an even bigger economy than the u.s. and even bigger trailer than the u.s. . the u.n. chief has rejected calls from syria's rebels to impose a no fly zone over the country to help bring down president at the moment followed a statement from the fighters saying they're no longer committed to the international troops down proposed by special envoy kofi annan the rebels claim
3:12 am
dozens of government soldiers were killed in clashes in attacks on security checkpoints so the last few days where violence comes amid growing voices from the u.s. and its allies for action amid reports of plans to set up military camps in syria something which will only bring more bloodshed according to middle east blogger culture. i think it will actually increase the likelihood of revenge killings kind of sectarian tension along mixed areas where. revenge operations will start to happen and it will suck more and more people in i think syria now it is at that tipping point where the conflict can be pulled back from. sectarian civil war to kind of some form of political framework but once there is actively groups on the ground in syria and whatever kind of formula they are in there they are likely to increase the prospect of bloodshed. well of course you can always log on to our
3:13 am
website r.t. dot com we've got a day to snooze not dates there as well as any other stories you may have missed where some of what's there few right now it's have a look no promised land for migrants the israeli government sends an go away message to africans the prime minister calls for mass deportation while the rights groups describe expulsion as immoral. and post revolution in libya seize shooting and violence once again militia group uses armored vehicles to capture the main airport in tripoli as military chaos drags the country back into bloodshed. as cairo braces itself for the largest rally seen in months calling for the execution of ousted president mubarak the muslim brotherhood's presidential
3:14 am
candidate is looking to use the protests to wipe out his rival even before round two of the vote is the mists join the cause of revolution groups for a million man march on tuesday to capitalize on anti mubarak sentiment from baton reports now from an egypt which could again be sliding into instability. revolution renewed but these protesters never expected to be back in time risk where just a year after they ousted the dictatorial president hosni mubarak he's now serving a life sentence but after thirty years in power talking the system he built is proving to be an even harder task than talking the land everything is like collapsing from at all dust economy so this gave me the impression is that probably be one will not you know rise again they are already exhausted or too exhausted to go to the square and protest again but it's really impressive they went to ghana and the op now protesting dalia has been involved with egypt's revolution from the

3:16 am
happy things but i think we're being more stable and. successful others believe more time is needed even though it may be a bumpy ride people did not go to. queers on streets again to protest those two big punches in the face more than they think this is their last chance to win begs that country but until then the revolutionaries plan to fight on which brings us back to real. protestors here of describe their religious revolution to me rather like a train they determined not to have it the rails either by religious hardliners by the regime but they're equally desperate to stop it running out of steam lest egypt go off on the wrong track altogether tom watson arts east africa square. now a look at some other stories making headlines around the world u.s.
3:17 am
officials say a drone strike on monday in north pakistan targeted al qaeda is the second in command at the moment it's on clear whether or not. fifteen people killed in the attack on a militant compound i mean eight american drone attacks in the country in the last fortnight before is increasing tension between pakistan and washington which is ignored demands to stop unmanned cross trucks. lines and heavy rain of struck three australian states leaving at least two people dead forcing thousands to flee their homes bridges and roads had to be closed people were warned against driving through floodwaters expected peak is reportedly the highest in every century just last month the northeastern state of queensland experienced its third major flood in less than two years. the. credit rating giant standard and poor's have predicted a one in three chance of greece leaving the eurozone after the country's general election later this month
3:18 am
a left wing syriza party which is tied for first place in the latest opinion poll has voted cancel the country's bailout deal if elected comes after an inconclusive election result in may greece has been under strict terms to cut spending working last protests from the public. well the strive to keep greece within the euro zone is said by many economists to increasingly resemble a farce in about ten minutes time here in r.t.r. the financial guru max kaiser reveals what he believes is behind it is part of what's coming up. like a greek exit at worst means more money printing for the banks and they've already priced that into their stocks and their bonuses what they're really afraid of is that a country finds its inner gonads and decides to become politically independent that's what they're fearful of a country standing up for itself they want iceland to be just contained they don't want greece to stand up for itself they don't want ireland to stand up for itself
3:19 am
because then they would tell the bankers to stop it that's the real problem they threaten this financial terrorism which is false it's false these are false attacks it was a false attack in two thousand and eight it was a concocted cover cooked attack on nine eleven it's a false. well they say a picture is worth a thousand words but in the art world you know talking millions of dollars that's if it's the genuine article but with forgeries on the rise it's getting increasingly hard to bias an auction houses like to spot the fakes and as aunties or smith explains some don't find out until it's too late. very important works of art go under the hammer every day in london's west end but how can i love as be sure of what they're buying according to scotland yard a staggering fifty percent of all art sold is fact what we're looking at these days
3:20 am
is a very considerable increase in faking of twentieth century art i've seen a number of provincial houses and. so fakes. a considerable scale and i think it's something that we all accept a lot of forgeries are also sold on auction websites but it's not just internet bias we can be taken in by the food just brush the latest auction house to come into the spotlight with christie's which is involved in a high court battle with russian tycoon victim back so he paid more than two and a half million dollars for a painting he thought was by prominent russian artist buddies cause still a death and find out later that it appears to have been signed for several years after. the case will go on for nineteen days and according to experts will probably cost more than the painting itself which is one reason why more of these claims
3:21 am
don't go to court but another buyer of russian art when confronted with lemons make lemonade eager to see a cough discovered his art collection meant to fund his retirement was mostly forgeries now he's displaying the paintings as a warning to others. when we have gone dog of our money where ashamed to talk of it i'm trying to be the first who says don't be ashamed of showing us because we believe your people who know when we're down to leave move now the time has passed and we realize we made a mistake and it's important to publicize the mistake because the quantity of russian figs is such the. the british national. will should be sharing it. with. one attempting the painting is genuine and one proving it sometimes even signed by the same person and his collection is just the
3:22 am
tip of the iceberg. this could be quite high profile prosecutions in the u.k. and germany of so-called must. feel there are still some excellent fakes hundreds of excellent fakes have been placed on the market and maybe that's just a very small bit how croft's method is clear it doesn't matter whether you're buying off the internet or a reputable auction house buyer beware. of time for some business news now and marina a rare optimistic day said. that's right kerry and i would don't see that very often here but this is mainly coming from the finance ministers as well as governors from the group of seven major economies will hold and emergency conference call later today to discuss the eurozone debt crisis and of course we tend to see a lot of optimism before that but as soon as the conference we normally see the
3:23 am
markets slide down the once again let's take a look at europe just kicked off the trading session and it's all in positive territory we can see that the german dax is adding almost half a percent when it comes to the footsie it is a cause close for this second though the public holiday as the brits are celebrating jubilee over there and we'll have a more clearer picture next hour when it's now after an hour into the trading session let's move on to russia where markets here are tracking overseas again so we see that the r.t.s. is adding over one percent of all the my sex over half a percent and of course we have higher oil prices which always help in the house and called in we'll talk more about that a little bit later let's move on to. and see what's happening there we see that it's all in positive territory as well with the nikkei adding over one percent in fact the hong kong shares have managed to rebound after a four day mus in st there and we'll also know is that investors there are food optimistic about or first of all the federal reserve. will stimulate the economy
3:24 am
further in over there with some money now moving on to currencies and see how the euro's change the euro is losing against the dollar when it comes to the ruble it's going against both major currencies the euro and the. prices as i said gaining for as second day in a row and that's after analysts are expecting the reports to come out which they say will show that u.s. stockpiles have dropped for the first time in eleven weeks now and other news they seem to be problems in the horizon for one of the oldest airlines in the world i'm talking about quantum us which is of course australia's flag carrier and it expects its profits to fall by as much as ninety percent that's amid growing losses that its international operations and its highest ever. it shares dropped around eighteen percent after this announcement. and the dispute between the owners of the now has a new twist now the minority shareholders of the company demand that b.p.
3:25 am
pay them fourteen a billion dollars in compensation and this has to do over a failed arctic deal with rosneft and the what they're saying is that b.p. suffered losses as it was invited into the exploration project which of course was later on blocked by the russian co-owners over the venture and earlier on the course the klein similar lawsuit saying there were unfounded and the renewal of the claim followed news of a possible sale of fifty percent stake in. and the construction of russia's second subsidy gas linked to europe is facing yet another difficulty this time of one of the projects members varia is considering pulling out the country says it could quit the south soon project claiming the proposed transit fees and operating ratio are unacceptable garia could break the timeline of the project if it doesn't sign the necessary documents by the middle of november
3:26 am
