she's flashing her card says i'm not a devotee i'm just here to do my job just let me go and she faces storm petting and that's when she's forced to return back. to support for the sick. and give a little bit of that's going to be often took their stock to the sponsors. to be watching the weekly here not international we're back with more stories in the headlines at the top of the hour.
hello and welcome to the party on the eve of the trunks on the western media i washed with reports on the so-called grand bargain that russia and the united states may or may not. americans are pretty clear that they want to see a decrease in the ring in presence in syria but they saw what they themselves paid in kind to discuss that i'm now joined by a senior advisor to iran's supreme leader ali akbar velayati that's really a great pleasure talking to you thank you very much for your time. you're most welcome.
as you may know or most days a pretty hectic city these days just yesterday israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu stopped by to watch football. palestinian leader mahmoud abbas is visiting on the same day as you but none of you tie your visit formal way to the upcoming meeting in helsinki is this just a coincidence that all your schedules happen to overlap. you know any connection between your attendance. too in your country and the presence of others. mention so i have come here independently only for the talking with the whole rango show them president putin i have cherry the messages of or great leader and all four president and president putin. we could try an opportunity for about two
hours the discourse. really shoes including the bilateral relations regional cooperation international cooperation but i'm sure you're full of the international news agenda and mr putin is slated quite. soon with mr trump and i'm sure you heard that there are a lot of speculations about the so-called grand bargain supposedly and all for that mr trump may. make to president putin to exchange syria for ukraine is that as far as you know is that really something that may be discussed behind closed doors these two issues or two independent. is ukraine cheny me. there is no any connection between these two important issues . we are here to discuss
a world the. it's russia in connection with the cooperation in syria us oil you going to is the disapproved the position of the. russian position you question the close you know pretty when you cry now speaking about the syrian talks. the western media reports about it as a as a sort of a possibility that may happen but many analysts in russia suggest that this has already been implemented to some extent on the ground for example. iran's role in the operation in eastern gooda earlier this year was last pronounced than usual its role in the current subs in the fanciful data is even more limited would it be fair to say that iran has already partially deliberate what the
americans and just some extent these rallies asking for. or present in syria doesn't related to the desire of the united states and other western countries which are following the diplomacy of the united states or some regional countries which are connected with the diplomacy of united states we are in syria on the basis of the invitation of legal government of syria to help the current of people of syria he support the whole integrity of syria and we are fighting you are helping the syrian golan and if you close syria for fighting against terrorist groups. with the help of russia and some other countries fortunately we have overcome me because
he's the. government of syria and syria have been facing and we do believe if. they stop. and russia which are available in syria and he should remain there to. maintain these military against a terrorist group if he is there on syria the united states and. its allies will continue the search for supporting of tory school once again. the demo schools and the champions of. syria will be in danger and dangerous situation and once again we even face is the. development of new development of the.
issue still we are there as the. who's the syria because the main. responsibility of the defend the country. of the. syria. yet is you're just. pointed out the iranian policy is has no relation to the american policy do not correlate but i'm sure you know very well that russia tried to your cards made its policy with all the actors on the ground with a specific reason of achieving a point when all foreign troops i assume including russian troops would be withdrawn from that country and syria would be able to provide its security on its own is that concurrent with how iran sees the out cement go in in that country you know the russian for the moscow has its own polish the
also. some cooperation we can to show it's in the community. if there are some a specific relation between russia and the united states if. it's related to us. we are following your interests and also your interests to corporate. or friendly country russia so maybe in some we shoot in some field. or independent policy in the region but we are trying to cooperate together without any contradiction now speaking about the current operation in the south of syria that there has been some tactical accommodation between russia and syria on the one hand and the united states on the other hand at least in the form of the american noninvolvement they
did not support the groups that they previously supported in that region i know that iran is rarely almost never complimentary of they are american policies in the region but can you appreciate this post here on the part of washington of noninvolvement and allowing the syrian government together with the russian federation to take control of that area or against any kind of presence of the united states in the region if they want to continue their his yemeni who generally call the c b we against the uni you know region in the region if you're in a region does could. understand the legal presence. the united states is trying to be in a region. when they are there the only job thier doing and they have shown that they do is creation of interest groups who are
risking tone during the time his tenure in the foreign ministry he. has so a meeting the. she. has dissipated in the creation of the terrorist group in syria and iraq if you recall in the. states. then trump. choose into the you who are the people who are these terrorist groups here ultimately agree with mr trump in the in these coalition he wanted to again change to the only change you followed the same policy that. created do you think you may have other things in common with mr trump and at least in the way how he conceptualizes
there is no newcomer in purposes a common policy between us and the search. and there could be no more overlap of of us on how the region develops we're not. because we know that. he. has you know any policy you know or the war you're against any kind o. expansionism and any kind of his unit where you notice it or any other country now as the americans keep on insisting on the. removal of the iranian presence as they put it in syria they and their allies seem to be in trenching and the history you're freydis and i'm sure you know the mr trump's current national security advisor mr bolton once advocated for the creation of the so-called sunni stand a quasi state that includes parts of syria and iraq do you think that may still be
on on washington's mind do you think that could be the ultimate goal of the policy you're not going to listen to mr trump or. ameri. influence. we are following the interests of the people in this region. we are in the very close cooperation with the friendly country that we have in the region with iraq and syria. with yemen. we don't permit the united states to intervene in the interim that's fair so for the country and also for friendly country in their image that's all made policy that you follow and you're not going to change these various if you will this obviously this is not what i'm asking for a muscular if you see any danger in the americans coming back to the so-called plan
b. which would be to splayed syria and possibly iran iraq into several states and create a state lead there and that's what's a serious security and interest and ice you know interest as well they cannot do that because the people of iraq and syria are against any kind of join you know the united states and the people of these countries will not tell you the united states to repeat their id you and he and also you support these very legal he is or of these people in the ridge well mr billow yes you have to take a short break now but we will be back in just a few moments. hello
my name's peter and i've been living in russia now for about seven years and this is a film about just some of the crazy things i've gotten in that time. but you're going to get. i mean because it is then there's still a deep problem because the kind of stuff you're going to. cost us is not significant.
nobody could see coming that false confessions would be that in this book the way shape or form will converge. at any interrogation out there what you'll see is threat promise threat promise threat lie a lie a lie the process of interrogation is designed to put people in just that frame of mind make them one comfortable make them want to get out and don't take no for an answer only accept their denials she said if i were to. say on the statement that i would be home by the next day there's a culture of on accountability and police officers know that they can engage in misconduct that has nothing to do with solving a crime. welcome
back towards a party the senior adviser to run supreme leader ali akbar velayati mr bell yet it israel seems to be very convinced and is trying to convince everybody else that iran is seeking to intrench itself and syria for the specific purpose of attacking . israel and i'm sure you would deny that's the case but if that's not the case why does iran continue sending advanced weaponry like for example surface to air missiles to syria especially now in knowing that the chance of israel striking those convoys is is very high this man who is running.
the regime is the doing like you but you're wrong the man being all the people in the war and people are not sitting there listening to. those the. regime to see a word they say or he says so he would years following the own interests we are in syria. with the protests of. israeli regime we will not change europe certainly policy. in the region is the helping of the people of the region including the people of iraq syria and lebanon so it's not related to the. israeli regime of course
what he's doing with will it is he repeatedly he says something that nobody listens to me. so you don't work. doctor you follow policy. obviously you're here follow your policy as you said but you know that russia has developed a pretty warm relationship with israel some say that it's the bast ever in the history of bilateral ties how is it taken on can't trust moscow and not annoying how close it is that israel really trusts in moscow common polish the view in the region. every country follows its own national interests. we are trying to. strengthen the common
policy and common use that we have in the region and international arena of course us quote not sure if in some issues we have or independent policy on the russian. as their own independent. so it doesn't make any difficulty for us if we are some commonalities something different now whenever this issue of decreasing the iranian presence in syria is raised analysts usually say that russia doesn't have enough leverage with iran to tell it what to do and i think you would probably agree with that but i also think that moscow would not even raise that issue with iran unless it was sure that all the other actors where they are illegally would follow suit and withdraw that troops they say moscow has enough skill enough capital political and
diplomatic capital to ensure that syria is once again a sovereign state of to know we. i didn't hear anything. in the russian official they changed or presence in syria or egypt because this is a region and also the russian federation also is as the same region so we have a regional cooperation it doesn't mean that in all. diplomacy we are compatible but in the many issues in many fields we're really close relation value close cooperation so we will remain in syria of two the time the league will go into syria. to leave syria other
will be there on the the basis of the permission and requests of the go into syria and also iraq iraq has. to be there. to them for fighting is terrorism. any kind of. due to the. people in the region and all the region including syria iraq yemen the iran also yemen if yemen are supposed to help them to be reined piece unturned could see in the region new england has not his day to do that going back to this idea of grand bargain that i started this interview with it could be argued that it's not just mr trump who could entertain that idea but that similar bargain would be all for it you know many regional actors for example syria
how would iran relate she or any offer of a more active saudi involvement in that country for example with. over the offer of reckon struction. mr truong is that your ne is offering the suggestion to today and be a change the same frame to war so no where the cherry a on the is from another royce and also we are not looking for the. scene there. truong to be tossed return to cooperativeness. trump or. in tearing in a game or any underwear getting that he has made in in some parts of the world including the muni so we will more not to participate in any game or anybody
that he has made. itself to them to him to cooperate it is in there if lois e bay so european is. we have a different policy or main quality in the region is cooperation with the. people of iraq lance. syria. we don't want to enter in there any kind of were you need. is going to be created. mr trump that's. ok if i may ask you on the formal purpose of your visit as far as i know your formal reason of coming here since you explained the iranian position on the a in the aftermath of the american of a troll from what i know iran has so far insisted that it will stay within the deal
if the europeans do enough. to make a palatable for your country have they been official supplier have they offered and often sent if to your country to continue complying with your. we. very close cooperation the russia or foreign minister. is in close contact you know still no roof and recently they had this meeting in vienna and they were very corporate. and all sure the european countries are trying to remain. these we've worked. the you should compensate worked. we have loss after the meter all. of the united states illegally
from disagreement i'm sure you follow the latest results of the nato summit in brussels and it's shocked many russians i have to tell you by the way mr trump treated his american partners do you think this if he continues on that path relating to the europeans in that way do you think it would be easier for iran to get what if iran wants from the europeans because he said before in previous interviews that there is no unity here on the iranian question but in europe. you know all cooperate unit you're all in in that train or he's quite. understand their role is continue but what they're doing in nato he's not. come but you know what you wish to have in the european countries of course use they want to destroy the world everything and then he subject in nato itself to them but you're going to defend also and you're swallowing the follow or. if knowing
