from smiles to host styles after key if said last week would not be signing a free trade pact with europe eva officials were jumping out of their skin to persuade president unocal the age. thing. you could see repeated politicians were not too happy to hear the korean president citing economic troubles and as it became clear kiev was not going to sign the deal at this point paired with a violent dispersal of protests in the capital that's when europe assumed a different tone we have to set aside short term political calculations. and we may not give in to external pressure no the least from russia such tactics from europe which have been accusing russia of pressuring ukraine not to sign the free trade pact raised some eyebrows they should really really stop
using the methods of the called world their blackmailing ukraine add that to the e.u. offering no compensations to potential economic losses which could have been catastrophic in practical terms it would be a disaster for the ukrainian people it would mean gas prices going up in prices going up unemployment going up the industrialisation so i think anna could have a choice the e.u. deal is a very bad one ukraine already has a staggering foreign debt of hundred thirty six billion euro and just more than izing factories to standards would have cost a staggering one hundred billion or more people in a street scared little about such implications. we deserve to be nearer. the deal would have allowed us to get better education in europe during the week of central square was the stage of the mass protest of those supporting your integration opposing president acknowledges decision not to sign the euro association deal in vilnius and even in a typically violent dispersal of their week long sit in on friday night with dozens
detained and injured did not stop the protest is still insisted the deal with the e.u. will happen most likely in early twenty fifteen but after riot police come to peaceful protesters thousands are converging on the capital kiev to join the opposition's calls for unocal which to hand over the reins alexy recess the ante reporting from kiev in ukraine. and here's why the ukrainian government is in over its head right now thousands of protesters as well as the opposition inside the parliament want to move the country inside europe the government finds the notion premature saying a brussels offer does not include such perks as membership and privileges that most europeans tend to enjoy then there's a belief that life inside the union would be cheaper seemingly attractive the government warns this comes at the expense of destroying the country's own economy and getting very little compensation for that now the opposition still insists kiev should break free of the pressure coming from moscow but close economic ties with russia including the free trade zone a shared
a business landscape an increased exports well it's putting the states back together and while the u.s. officials say moscow's playing an unfair game patrick young believes brussels is simply trying to divert attention away from his own shortcomings if the european union's leaders whether individually or collectively started to admitting to their shortcomings there'd be no end of problems wouldn't there i mean look at the european union massive run down employment throughout the course of the entire union we've got things like fifty percent plus of you thought employment in several mediterranean countries they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco built on sand by the sort of deluded technocrats who believe that they know the best thing for all people and therefore realistically the only thing the european union can try to do is keep lives storming anybody russia who cares because ultimately the european union started and has rendered
a wonderful supranational trade project is ultimately falling apart at the seams because it has become itself a crumbling soviet style empire which in many cases replicates some of the more ridiculous facets of the old soviet union. thanks for joining us for their weekly here on r.t. international earlier this week global headlines were dominated by an historic nuclear deal with iran hammered out in geneva by six world powers tehran was promised a modest relief to sanctions and return for scaling back its nuclear program but though the country has managed to set aside their differences to reach the breakthrough agreement they do still differ on what made it possible let's get more on that now here's artie's polyploid. it's a deal that saluted diplomats for a decade and as the crucial make or break iran letelier talks continue to enter the
night details of how they were going for leading the journalists camped out in geneva so we waited and waited and waited while diplomats from six world powers and iran inch their way closer to in a storage breakthrough than after sixteen hours a tweet from the e.u.'s top diplomat a deal had been done the six negotiating powers agreed to recognize iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy including its right to nuclear enrichment on the condition that its program is placed under strict control by the i.a.e.a. as we received word of the agreement we got details to iran had agreed to reduce its uranium enrichment from twenty to a maximum of five percent use us centrifuges while halting construction of a new reactor near the town of iraq. throughout this long list of concessions
iran's foreign minister still had a smile on his face in return he won for his country a partial easing of sanctions allowing tarantula regain control of billions of dollars worth of much needed funds in foreign banks we believe that it is the sanctions that have brought us to this negotiation and ultimately to the more significant negotiation to follow for a comprehensive agreement others have stressed that it wasn't the stress of more punitive measures but diplomacy that won the day over the night in the case of these talks the fact that that the iranians have shown time after time that there is no evidence that iran's nuclear program is anything but peaceful is something that has been ignored by the western media and western governments but this despite all that iran's real civilians has forced these countries to accept. enrichment and
again the russians and the chinese have played a very constructive role in this thing to do it in the suit with the agreement is based on the concept forward by the russian president vladimir putin iran's new president hassan rouhani is also seen as having played a crucial role in making the deal possible he came to power less than three months ago pledging to improve iran's relations with the west and i don't think sanctions played as much of a role as a recognition by the united states and britain and other countries that we need to engage iran because iran is becoming increasingly influential it is only an interim agreements in six months time well now it's time to run i said several times in the casey eighteen table but also to you failed to give me that scientists in the middle of the night it's a game changer ali boy odyssey to me. and in the very first moments after the
nuclear deal with iran it was reached it was clear the agreement left an awful lot of room for interpretation. iranian. enrichment program will continue this first step does not say that iran has a right to enrichment but here at r.t. international we spoke to asia times correspondent pepe escobar he believes america is stuck right in the middle of a very delicate balancing act. this being war has started at three am in geneva and it's going to be going for another six months kerry had to say that so he could of peace the israel lobby the u.s. congress and the wahhabi petrodollar law of the u.s. not to mention some neil cons and us as well still very thoughtful and in iran it's different they are saying we still have our right to enrich. and it's correct
because that deal keeping the reaching you reading to size percent for the next six months for the moment we have a breakthrough it's going to last six months there will be all sorts of interest to try to pull barred this deal but for the moment we have diplomacy in action something that we haven't seen especially between us and iran for thirty four years . and despite the hugs and handshakes in geneva the deal with iran left many outside the negotiating room rather run a happy that includes president obama's opposition at home and america's closest ally in the middle east guy nature can reports on the so-called skepticism today that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure and flying in the face of president obama what was cute in geneva. last night in small sort of agreement. this is sort of an state. does not move to
a safer place in an environment where israel as well as many u.s. lawmakers don't think that iran should develop nuclear technology at all the obama administration had to engage in diplomatic acrobatics to both acknowledge iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time we approach these negotiations with a basic understanding of iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy but because of its record of violating its obligations iran must accept strict limitations on its nuclear program that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation and to mutual agreement. despite the official's attempts to appease the hawks punches are flying purity it looks like we've tacitly agreed that they
will be enriching for commercial purposes down the road so i think you're going to see on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the final agreement another senator marco rubio called the deal quote a blow to our allies in the region who are already concerned about america's commitment to their security and i think a lot of people both in the middle east and on capitol hill are very concerned that this interim deal becomes the new norm opponents of the deal in washington and abroad are already working not too late and survive the six month trial the obama administration is walking on eggshells before congress israel and its allies in the coffers it's trying to convey a carefully worded message which is you cannot threaten war all the time in washington i'm going to check out. autumn must go on and still to come here and

each year they take about five hundred students on a three year course rain or shine they are drilled for every eventuality limits to live from breaking the page booklet on the bodies down all the guests have left but the police call and say this lady may have been poisoned and must be exude how do we get her out of there you know ideas yeah. a lot of the cost is spent on the job at local funeral parlor as despite the onus being on professionalism it doesn't leave the participants immune to the realities. it's tough sometimes you know if there's a kid lying there or someone my age of them for it it hits you how fragile life can be the students don't just spend their time digging graves they also receive extensive studies and enough to me as well as lessons in how to deal with the deceased using some rather realistic props also the correct way to measure on build
a coffin including those designed to fit the regulations for international travel. and perhaps most importantly a lot of work is done to make sure the students can be sensitive to the needs of a grieving family if a meeting actually here or there we aim to make sure that when someone gradients they have the skills to work anywhere or even set up their own enterprise when they leave our gates they're professional funeral directors which will be welcome news to any of their future customers because you only get one chance to get it right these are all over r t germany and no one r.t. international our continued reporting to child labor forces in europe.
i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and it's quite the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating there now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their acts used to build up some infrastructure by think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand a lympics in beijing yes china has really developed in the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say it by think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle
ground again then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. the speaker is used to working with under-age boys he makes no secret of it. these yes yes it's true that there are so many asking me for work at least ten or twelve a week they say they like the work they say it's a fine professional well it's true that it's a fine job but it's also tough as in such a free doesn't consider himself a child explain this boss of a small family business feels that the current crisis leaves him with no choice in a god. i used to have three employees then little by little because of the rise in taxes an increase in fuel prices i ran into difficulties and had to let them all go
and. of course one of the advantages of having these boys working here is that i save a bit an expensive. but i have to say i'm still the one who ends up working the most since my sales are plummeting i'm forced to count on the kids. but i'm telling you if sales increased i did mediately get a qualified worker who could lighten my load a little. here you are senora have a great day. how many italian small business owners are taking advantage of this cheap labor force. according to recent estimates there are sixty thousand kids working in the naples region today. and the state what's the italian government doing about it. this is the headquarters of the labor inspection agency for companion. the director doesn't know the camera is already running here.
