welcome back you're watching r t here's a look at the top stories cuban rights groups claim international pharmaceutical giants are endangered the lives of patients in india by using them as guinea pigs the cost of testing drugs is significantly lower in india by the the cost is increasing every year. it's fifty years since a soffit space program sought dogs become the first living things to spam more than twenty four hours in the orbit survive the flight and pave the way for the first man to go to space half a year later. investigators say it. is likely to be behind a car bombing in russia's north caucasus authorities have stepped up security across moscow fearing more attacks. so the headlines aside war veteran who fought in afghanistan in the eighty's says the u.s.
is failing its campaign there because after nine years it still doesn't understand the country words people soft spoken. at interviews coming right up. i see a very special bond by first of the mystic river toughs thank you for joining us today so much is hosting a summit the second of its kind after the july session last year and where. does it mean russia is strengthening its position in the region it's always been present and is opening up new opportunities focal ration primarily with afghanistan and pakistan standing with pakistan here too much but if you have three minutes of going to play here i think that russia is trying to strengthen its position russia's trying to reserve its position in the settlement process in afghanistan by this quartet to achieve this goal which is really important for both afghanistan and for the region as a whole as well as for russia these regular events are taking place and i don't
think this meeting will lead to any important strategic decisions as the current format in sochi is characterized by the different positions of its participants but with pakistan has one view of the afghan crisis tajikistan has another view russia may yet have another position but as for russia and turkey could stand it's obvious that they want to settle the situation in the country as soon as possible they are concerned with terrorism and with drug production and trafficking as for pakistan it has been playing a double game over the past forty years virtually to express their will to fight terrorism but in fact and everyone knows that everything that is now going on in afghanistan has pakistani origins pakistani influence and impact if it was not for the external power play by pakistan terrorism would still exist but it would be of a minor character a minor insurgent character nothing more in this respect it is important that russia is more active in discussing the afghan issue with the countries of this region. that i've you've mentioned the truck traffic an
issue the statistics say that about thirty thousand people in russia die annually. because of the drugs coming from afghanistan how can the american presence in afghanistan how to solve this problem and can russia saw that on its own with us congress you more than you have of thought the middle and i feel the point is the status of internal forces the u.n. mandate stipulates their participation in anti drug measures from time to time they take part in such operations but it's sporadic and aimed at small producers and small smugglers when carrying out anti-terrorist operations they come across some drug carbons destroy them of course but nothing more but a recent international conference in moscow on this issue nato representatives refused to include it on the list that nato troops must obligatorily participate in fighting narcotics they fear that this will only pose a greater threat to them in afghanistan and i give it their position so that's why
they refused to limit themselves to fight against so-called terrorism what is terrorism afghani terrorism nobody has given a precise and understandable definition even the highest ranking american generals who have been leading nato troops over there haven't done so. but. president obama has made a decision to cut the number of american troops in afghanistan considerably how realistic are these plans do you think or how much will troops numbers the cut will the afghan go for it is the capable of controlling the situation in the country by themselves the pressure to present to me nonetheless of the past nine months the position of the american authorities has changed considerably on the one hand american congress the house of representatives and most importantly the democratic party categorically insist on a considerable pullout of american troops from afghanistan starting july first twenty eleven. otherwise they would face a great challenge at the upcoming twenty eleven elections on the other hand the
u.s. military command especially after the start of david petraeus his term as i.s.a.'s commander has been looking for excuses to delay president obama's decision or to postpone it. we must remember that the larger part of the u.s. military serves the interests of the republican party and so does the us defense minister come on i get frequent calls from u.s. journalists asking what the u.s. should do in the current situation and whether they should withdraw their troops next july which i usually respond with a question of my own but is there no alternative if there isn't there is no alternative to the complete withdrawal of u.s. troops the longer their forces u.s. and nato forces stay in afghanistan the more they will destabilize the region it is evident that the presence of any foreign troops nato u.s. or sauvie troops will only inspire terrorism in afghanistan you cannot depict the country as a den of terrorism or its people as terrorists by default this is not true it is in
fact very far from the truth that there is a faction of people within the rebel movement that use terror methods some of these people do indeed have links to al-qaeda in no way does this mean that any afghan or any armed afghan is a terrorist the us is facing a philosophical problem they spent nine years there by december twenty ten the length of their military presence will match that of the soviet contingent now over this period they fail to understand the afghans outlook on life they do not understand afghanistan barack obama is now facing the gorbachev dilemma of whether to withdraw u.s. forces but a couple if he withdraws them it will be bad if he doesn't it will go from bad to worse i'm deeply convinced that barack obama should do the same thing as mikhail gorbachev did with the afghanistan's there is no other way i think from us that we have received information about the taliban making the proposition to nato to jointly that's the gates to the deaths in afghanistan how realistic and serious is
that offer on this. no yeah sure you have many i don't think it's serious i'd like to say that the taliban movement is quite formless structurally it is basically a successor to the mojahedin movement that was active during the soviet military presence in afghanistan it hasn't changed much since then the way propaganda is spread hasn't changed either and i would regard this offer as part of the propaganda war the taliban is obviously winning it by the way it's obviously beating the us as for the offer itself even if the u.s. or nato was to agree to it i don't think the taliban would play an active role in the investigation of these unpleasant and difficult incidents but the president they have legal standing what's happening in afghanistan and pakistan is affecting other countries including russia what could russia do to establish a secure regime in the region possibly going from with that when you had your chance and no single stakeholder in the region will be able to do anything on their
own the us tried to do so but failed they brought the nato contingent and failed again i could say that countries in the region with their different stances and viewpoints will never come to consensus on the afghan crisis in order to find ways to settle the conflict from outside of the region we will certainly have to draw neighboring countries into the peace process iran pakistan political stand and definitely it was based on as well on russia and kazakhstan will also have to take part in russia's afghanistan's historical partner and vice versa the u.s. and nato states have never been afghanistan's partners but they don't understand the fundamentals of the region a huge the only country that has provided for an approach many between iran is based on pakistan and to stand as russia or this i think is one of the main goals of the such a summit would have to switch. wealthy
