from last year's center in moscow this is twenty four hours a day well as a beginning a new round of talks over iran's nuclear program today that says israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in moscow in the hope of preventing any progress in the negotiations went on been following developments in geneva for us and joins us live now the talks are just on the way now and. i now understand that we cannot cross over to polly we've just lost we've just lost contact i do apologize hopefully we can catch up with her a little later here on r.t. live in geneva following those all important nuclear talks. and we can now lead in to a report from to bang say who can bring us up to date on what has been happening here in moscow over the visit from the israeli prime minister show bring us up to
date on that meeting and what is expected to come out of it israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu is i think is the efforts to get a no deal on iran's nuclear pad to with the p five plus one popping into moscow in a bid to convince others of his argument that it's a bad deal. it's again. because it cutesy iran as a nuclear threshold nation but russia is not easily swayed have been repeatedly said a deal that suits all can be reached france's president francois hollande did israel an unexpected shucked of support after rejecting the deal presented in geneva last week but iran's not taking it without a fight. some nations have such relations with tel aviv that they are influenced by their influence by the atmosphere that's been created around iran for the five plus
one countries which are holding talks with iran it is unbecoming when some of them or indeed one specific nation is being influenced by told these problems cations. so what is this deal that has israel's prime minister running from a country to country the peace five plus one who want iran to hold its nuclear program in exchange for relaxation of crippling sanctions while world leaders are welcome the new voice of change from president rouhani israel's ally the u.s. seems to be stuck in the middle persuading congress not to slap iran with more sanctions during negotiations while battling a shaky relationship with israel president obama says he's optimistic that a deal can be made that will not jeopardize israel's security this follows a u.n. statement saying that iran is a welcoming increased inspections the starting line it may be complete but who will make it to the finishing line as the winner to bang with a r.t.
moscow. we hope to cross back live to geneva to catch up with polly barker who's following those talks which is just getting in the way in our party can you hear me yes i can be good tell us what is the latest i know these talks have only just started but any indication as to what's been said so far. well all the delegations are currently locked in a meeting and we know that a little earlier the high representative catherine ashton had met with the iranian foreign minister zarif and that meeting. productively but essentially what we have here is a historic deal at stake here engine that could put an end to. the issue of the iranian program now and many of our viewers will know that just ten days ago the delegations here came tantalizing close to that deal but it fell apart
just at the last minute and thereafter ensued a blame game about who was responsible for that falling apart it's cut out in the middle of talking all right sorry about that let's leave this thing for the moment thanks very much indeed for the moment very rarely does this happen but it's obviously one of those days we've lost contact with polly there in geneva but we will indeed endeavor to catch up with a bit later now these talks started more than a decade ago but deadlock in two thousand and five that's when. it becomes president and iran resumes you rhenium enrichment dancing the peaceful nature of its intentions the u.n. security council approves the first round of sanctions against iran in two thousand and six concerns grow when in two thousand and ten iran begins in richmond to the twenty percent level is significant advance towards producing weapons grade uranium . the us israel then a computer virus to attack iran's nuclear facilities has discovered in july two
thousand and ten the lack of progress in talks leads to the e.u. significantly expand the good sanctions in two thousand and eleven the election of a new leader hassan rouhani allows for a thaw in iran's relations with the west and negotiations resume well let me order him he's a columnist for the how it's newspaper and television spectrum a little earlier he believes that world powers are close to an agreement that many in israel are in favor of. all indications at deal is in the making of course it could always fall through if one of the players insists on some minor point but the general direction is thoughts and agreement towards. reconciliation and many in the israeli public think it's a very good development contrary to what. would make it
appear. at least twenty eight people have been killed in a series of blasts in iraq the bloodshed is skyrocketing with bombings and out of there is a busy street almost every day more analysis of the situation ahead for you here on r.t. this hour. while winding down its combat mission in afghanistan nato is seeking to boost its military drills in europe the nonce commanders are planning large scale exercises which they say have to ensure the allies keep working smoothly together well like the latest nato war games held in poland and the baltic republics earlier this month these were the largest in years involving six thousand troops but the u.s. led bloc is even bigger plans for the future coming drills and twenty fifteen which will take place in spain and portugal are expected to gather a force of more than forty thousand however financially troubled europeans are not seeking in on paying for nato's ambitious drills artie's peter oliver now reports.
european nations can and should. do more to match america's commitment that commitment is said to see upwards of forty thousand troops deployed on maneuvers within the e.u. in the coming years all in port and work for the future of the alliance once the combat mission in afghanistan is over the question is how can we retain these operational experiences and capabilities and so you must exercise you must train your forces you must test whether the old routines work the command structure works but the troops are interoperable. is a former east german security officer turned author to spending a career watching nato during the cold war he isn't buying the reason given that this is all part of the winding down of operations in afghanistan we have or oh. there isn't any need to put these troops in europe i think they would have ramped
up operations even if afghanistan wasn't coming to an end that's down to what he sees as a change in nato policy following actions in libya and towards syria. when most of them instead of a defensive army they want an army of intervention of aggression nato is responsible for three quarters of global arms spending at a time when many of its members a flat broke here in central a group of demonstrators on a banner saying no to wars of intervention but it's crazy to think that this is anything to do with any rogue state by holding operations in europe it shows nato still looks towards russia and. the population is getting poorer and who are they getting more expensive these types of exercises are threats the citee they want politicians to pay attention to the real cost of military spending with most
eurozone countries still fighting serious economic battles it's understandable why europeans would be uneasy about shelling out for nato war games at a time they can least afford it peter all of a r.t. . meantime the european union is struggling to rein in the mounting government debt and the a sturdy stricken nations have been steadily pruning back their defense budgets in recent years and hard economic times like the present boosting military cooperation is not a major priority what is going to church can discuss the issue with retired u.s. army colonel douglas macgregor who says nato is struggling to hold the alliance together. so the plan for europe for twenty fifteen nato has is war games with forty thousand troops in portugal and spain. these countries of course will have to chipping to make it happen that's a huge expense for their better the economies what's what's the urgency well
whatever nato conducts exercises of any kind there's always a great deal of time and money invested in what i would call a large solidarity and i know there is great concern about the troubled nature of the economies particularly on the iberian peninsula in portugal and spain i think we want to reaffirm the day or close members of the alliance that we are behind them that we support them and what better way to do that than to conduct an exercise in will in their ground and a lot of money grow much of it is money's already budgeted more than half the troops will probably be air and naval forces so they have to conduct a certain number of operations one way or the other there's a lot of discussions on how nato. future there are so proud of what they did in libya it seems that they see their future in this kind of hit and run operations but what do you think about it libya it was not a success we ultimately unleashed forces in that country sunni islamic forces that are anti western. american and ultimately end is that it will be the interests of
libya's future social and political development we don't know how libya will turn out but nato sees it as successful that's the message that sample for this operation is that that is a public message in truth there were enormous problems with the operation how do you see the future of nato i think it's it's very questionable over time it's going to be harder and harder to hold the alliance together and so i don't see the nato alliance holding together in its current form for another decade or maybe these exercises are not such a bad idea maybe at least for a while nato. actually invade other countries to keep itself busy with me in washington. and i'm going to watch and work. with the twenty four hours a day this is r.t. live here in moscow still to come on the program this hour the fukushima plant operator may claim it's doing well in remedying the aftermath of the earthquake and
tsunami disaster but things don't look so great now more problems have been exposed . we were treated like nothing like disposable people they promise things and then when we received a large radiation dose. coming up we report on why those cleaning up the crippled power plant built mistreated and who is cashing in on this. the american captain of the greenpeace vessel involved in the storming of a russian oil rig has been freed on bail now this brings the total number of those released to twenty before trial for hooliganism medina. the russian court and. the american captain of the greenpeace ship peter wilcox and earlier the court has also decided to release citizens who are all over the board has decided to release it to go which means peace activist associate can see more than probably the cases down i don't trust thirty eight detainees that are now standing trial for

and the united states predicted that this is precisely what would happen if. the new key went into iraq as they did in two thousand and three so this is a key sort of chickens coming home to roost but the key is the. people killed because of this regional conflict there's a sea and there's difficult for security forces in iraq and syria to keep a lid on these things that's why it's important that the west pressure on the opposition howards to stop freaking and to come to the negotiating table but to isolate these sunni fundamentalists they have no place in the future of the region . and our online team has created a special project to keep track of the growing casualties in iraq and to draw attention to the bloodshed it's just a click away at r.t. dot com i i
i i. i i i i. i. i. the disaster at the fukushima nuclear plant on the one hundred fifty billion dollar cleanup operation have reportedly become a honeypot for japan's mafia the plant operator tepco who's sitting on a pyramid of subcontractors and according to police some of them have ties to organized crime poor working conditions and low safety standards make those taking part in the cleanup feel victimized and the ripples. as if clearing up the dangerous debris in the aftermath of japan's worst natural disaster in
a century was not tough enough this former fukushima worker says he's having to see you with a firm which hired him i was out of work after the tsunami so when a job offer it fukushima came up i took it they promised a lot of money even signed a long term contract but then suddenly terminated it not even paying me a third of the promise so do you have a feeling that you were mistreated absolutely we were given no insurance for health risks no radiation meters even we were treated like nothing like disposable people they promised things and they kicked us out when we received a large radiation dose this young man volunteered to jump into nuclear hell to make a living many others though were forced so claims investigative journalist. who went undercover to fukushima filming with the camera hidden in his watch he discovered that many of the workers were brought in by the infamous underworld syndicate the young so this is. at fukushima.
in japan and quite often when a certain construction project requires an immediate workforce in large numbers bosses make a phone call to the yeah so it was the case with fukushima the government called tepco to take an agent action tepco relayed it to subcontractors and that he eventually as they had a shortage of available workers called the yacht could sell for help so there was a rhythm. but fukushima is no ordinary construction site the workers drawn to the power plant by the young kids or mostly with gambling debts to the organization or family obligations often had absolutely no idea what they were dealing with. they were given very general info about radiation and most were not even given radiation meters they could have exposed themselves to large doses without even knowing it even the so called fukushima fifty the first group of workers sent there immediately after the disaster at least three of them were enrolled by the. suzuki publish details of what he says is solid evidence but tepco officials remain
defined that any mistreatment or organized crime involvement is taking place and we're doing everything to ensure our workers operate in safe conditions we also deal harshly with law while eating subcontractors but the company and its subcontractors already short of hands there are twenty five percent more openings for jobs at fukushima plant than applicants according to government data gaps filled says suki by the homeless the desperately unemployed and even those with mental disabilities there are no exact figures as to how many people are involved in the fukushima clear up operation but rough estimates suggest that this may be up to a quarter of a million people and with experts saying that it may take another forty years to completely liquidate the aftermath of the disaster it's really hard to imagine how many more workers will be involved in this dangerous line of duty and more importantly how many of them will feel disposable and expendable once their jobs and. reporting from japan. investigators have found the missing tape
