thinking 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 they are divine and dispersal of protests in the capital that's when you rip assumed a different tone we have to set aside short term political calculations. and we may not give in to external pressure not the least from russia such tactics from europe which have been accusing russia of pressure in ukraine not to sign the free trade pact raised some eyebrows they should really really stop using the methods of the caldwell they're blackmailing ukraine add that to the e.u. offering no compensations to ukraine for 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 in a commish we didn't 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 denies in factories to standards would have cost a staggering hundred billion or more with the people in the street scared little about such implications that we deserved to be in the euro crisis the deal would have allowed us to get better education in europe during the week of central square was the stage of the mass protests of those supporting your integration and 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 protesters still insisted the deal with the e.u. will happen most likely in early twenty fifteen but after riot police 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 deonte reporting from kiev in

ukraine. and here is why the ukrainian government is under pressure now thousands of her status as well as the opposition and parliament want to move the country towards here but the government thinks that's premature saying brussels is not offering parks like membership and the privileges most europeans enjoy than bad as a believe that live closer to europe would be. cheaper but the government warns the deal would actually damage the economy for little compensation the opposition still insists care should resist pressure from moscow but close economic ties with russia including a free trade zone and shared business landscape and increased exports aimed to pull the states together and to pull not how an m.e.p. for the u.k. independence party says while the e.u.'s ultimate goal is integrating ukraine not everybody will be happy to see that happen they don't know enough about the problems that your. law the european union wants ukraine to eventually

this week is seoul diplomatic differences exposed by the historic deal between six world powers and iran over its atomic ambitions by cutting back on its nuclear program to iran will see a canonic sanction softened the deal is still just a small and cautious step as. reports. it's a deal that's eluded diplomats for a decade. and as the crucial make or break iran letelier talks continued into the night details of how they were going were leading the journalists camped out in geneva so we waited and waited and waited while diplomats from six world powers and iran inched their way closer to an historic breakthrough than after sixteen hours a tweet from the e.u.'s top diplomat a deal had been done. just that the six negotiating powers agreed to recognize
7:09 am
iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy business including its right to enrichment under the condition that this program is placed under strict control by the i.a.e.a. this year. 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 used for u.s. 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 and 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 today more significant negotiation to follow for
7:10 am
a car brands of 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 resilience has forced these countries to accept. and. it's meant and again the russians and the chinese have played a very constructive role and i don't think that sanctions played as much of a role as the 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 a sense of return to the negotiating table but also to hear failed. to meet with

scientists in the middle of the night it's a game changer polyploid a hot seat to meet that. not everyone is happy with the wrong do you hope some company will hail israeli hardliners and disgruntled shakes in the gulf states just some of those angry. boncelles the white house faces to make this agreement stake 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 the geneva. last night in small store. store and still. it's not me who wrote a series of plays 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 batiks to both acknowledge iran's right
7:12 am
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 hunches our flying security cameras 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
7:13 am
another senator marco rubio call 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 to let it 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. pay an accused benyamin netanyahu a war mongering and believes it could end with israel becoming isolated iran has made clear they have no desire to develop nuclear weapons whatsoever they're no desire to develop nuclear weapons but yet but yet this fear mongering this talk of

be in the. this is they were here on aussie welcome back now it's been a critical week for scotland and a long lead up to the vote of independence later next year lead to alex style moaned and launched a wealthy document laying out what they want him labeled a mission statement for the nation's future. the key points put forward by the pro independence movement. should scotland be an independent country it's a six word question that requires a simple yes or no but breaking a three hundred year old doing it could hardly be simple and the scots are not taking it lightly as it stands only about thirty percent of scots say they will vote for independence a figure those in the yes camp hope to increase by presenting that much anticipated
7:20 am
white paper which a scottish national party says has the answers to all the questions about independence but prime minister david cameron and those belonging to the cabin says that independence is laden with risks and problems with warnings on just about everything taxes and debt suggest. higher taxes e.u. membership london says scotland could forget about it they tried a nuclear program david cameron claims getting rid of it is a bad idea in case of a north korean nuclear attack and there might even be roaming charges on mobile phones if the split happens at the list goes on it's a project fear by the yes camp and they accuse the government of scare mongering scots into voting no and they'd sist the white paper will prove that independence would bring about a jobs boom and a thriving economy concerns that resonate with voters this white paper answers some six hundred fifty questions and the details here really are two main categories

here one those that will be negotiated during the transition period and another of those will be made if an independent scottish government is formed they promise indeed a lot of breaking down of all the policies they want to pursue let's listen to a bit of what they said we would call a halt to damaging wissmann suppose. many people into poverty abolish the bedroom tax and ensure that the incomes of the lowest paid keep peace with the course of living the main crux of the matter here is that many critics are pointing out asking if this white paper is going to be presenting. because a lot of the premises presented requires another party in negotiation what if the party the bag of england or the british government or even new member states in terms of e.u. membership what if they don't agree to what alex salmond has has been proposing but he said that he is confident that everything that's contained in six hundred seventy pages will be addressing every single question if anything of this why

cryptic currency has gone up in value one hundred times since january economist knopf own ten believes is just the start of the big decline rather notion i think it's a matter of just just a matter of time at this point took over and what we've seen in recently is that there's a lot more acceptance of bitcoin by both merchants and by governments governments have recognized bitcoin they're willing to accept it they realize that it's the type of currency going forward in the world where it's more secure it's more private it's more efficient and it holds its value better as well i think you're going to see much higher prices for a bit coin i don't forecast market prices but i think that over time you're going to see bitcoin rising in value because currencies are continuing to depreciate around the world we're in a world currency war and that's good things for investors and bitcoin. and coming up next it's all big business and financial child venture capital.
