3:04 am
a few minor points where there are disputes most of this is undisputed sovereign territory there's a number of companies now i think in europe and i would like germany to act you know kingdom and china and all those who are also very good so it's now in the arctic ocean some because of the shipping not because of the resources because of the potential for making a shorter route from through your digging up the arctic is like walking on thin ice and the chance to tread lightly and work out existing differences is welcomed by all. this is as close as most people will ever come to the arctic but its unique nature and vast natural resources are more than enough to entice one and all those attending the forum hope the enticement will help bridge differences. keeping everybody on the same pole catherine as our r.t. moscow they are the region that is badly affected by the climate change and the lives melting icecaps they threaten to flawed countries surrounding the north pole
3:05 am
so it's a major concern for everyone who participates in this forum as well as also on layers that dissolve over the arctic and of course a rare species and representatives of wildlife that need to be protected so it's not just about the money and energy and the participants of this forum are guided by the concept preserved before extract when the russian expedition first set up the russian flag down of the seabed of the arctic sept that said the woman also of rage is in fact a continuation all of washington area story but the u.n. commission said that russia needs to presents more proof on that in order to get to develop those reserves and recently canada has to claim that this rage is in fact part of its territory challenging russia's bid to develop it so no decision has been made in that respect yet but both countries has south have said that they are

another important meeting that took place today was the five permanent members of the security council plus germany meeting to discuss the latest situation the developing situation with iran basically the five permanent members plus germany got together to assess whether or not the existing sanctions have been working and impacting iran's actions now the main idea that came out of the five plus one meeting was that the group wants iran to resume talks that the possibility of and. as welcomed and wanted and it's interesting that it has hinted that basically it is open to discussions however we have to remember that iran and iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad has really been playing a lot of mind games lately among other things that he has said is that iran is going to launch a war against the united states if the united states tackles iran's you rhenium facilities are other things that the mahmoud ahmadinejad has said that iran is open
3:10 am
for dialogue and then he was saying that this format of five plus one is not exactly the best way for iran to cooperate so really no details worked out yet but at today's meeting the five plus one try to come up with the next steps that they would take if iran sits down for negotiations what i discovered over iran's nuclear program takes the floor at a u.n. meeting in new york the media blitz against it has been launched in manhattan the main target of the pricey ad campaign is president with a job himself going to. call it a september tradition the president of iran visits the big apple. angry protesters scorn his arrival. the biggest area. and. just to drive no good bill you need on didn't is that it. or you.
3:11 am

3:12 am
pays to be featured in more than two hundred ads posted throughout the city america's favorite denim side by side with its favorite nemesis and he's going to everywhere sort of like the enemy but not the enemy you know but yet we're. plastering this phrase up there an ad blitz highlighting the worst accusations against iran's leader has some questioning the messenger more than the message this is the kind of dumbing down of our collective consciousness in this country is just going to keep getting us in trouble i think we need to be educated about what the issues are. and the only way we're going to solve this issue with iran is if we look at the entire middle east and in demilitarizing the whole zone of the goodness and from misinforms most people miss a word about one of them what do you think there is about well being nobody knows when you were. not so telling the cost of the anti ahmed in jobs campaign.
3:13 am
you know we don't disclose our numbers for obvious purposes ad sales experts tell our t. that united against nuclear iran spent an estimated three hundred thousand dollars but it's money be better off spent on home a speedboat forty thousand of whom remain out in the dark of new york city while the spotlight shines solely on one man arena poor party in new york. while a still ahead for you in the program. kick of chrome from a stone what it points out when the baltic states shake. a former russian martial arts fighter with a history of violence and extremism has turned up in the way of the simply walking out of a psychiatric ward last month. who was also a prominent member of a band nationalist party seeking political asylum so first has been following the
3:14 am
story. he ran it decided he could no longer hide not long after his escape from a psychiatric facility in st petersburg. sick has emerged in norway where he handed himself later to authorities asking them to grant him political asylum and that thank you for being named to his aggressive fighting within the reading it now a. day as well as highs of the last of his party this loving this grabbing the attention wearing a t. shirt with a swastika and carrying a loaded gun he turns himself and he makes a right equinox calling for the ugly to die and praising his slavic guard for a party members have openly supported his escape. he called me several hours before that video was made and said he was going to turn himself then i replied that it was up to him he thanked me for supporting him murder threats and robbery and an alleged psychotic breakdown placed in high security psychiatric can but after he
3:15 am
transferred to a low security facility he made light work of escaping ripping up a wire fence with his hands he simply walked away the doctors a dissing him too intimidated to intervene serious questions have been raised as to how exactly a psychiatric patient managed to escape and make it out of russia without being caught but it's funny they tell us that he's totally insane. and all he does a scream and yell in reply to any question however he managed to cross two borders and he brought his weapon along i know one member of the slav again who originally came from is because don he asked for political asylum and was granted a residence visa i'm not sure what will happen with dirt sick but anything is possible. now under arrest in no way the fullest fight his fate hangs on whether he'll be extradited back to russia wanted political asylum. r.t.

must take. their turn r.t. we discussed the impact of islamist extremists on world peace and stability in the former head of a libyan islamic fighting group a man of an ottoman who once worked alongside a sama bin laden says violence has never brought any benefit to the middle east. it's a portal theory of the outcomes of the jihad movement it's a thought the theory that means we need to change that is it that is the end of the period so i think now the main solution is all the islamic groups they should give up their struggle and give it back to the governments whether we're like them or not it's not love and hate. it's politics. and you can find out what else the ex fighter had to say about islamist extremism and his former colleague osama bin laden next hour here in r.t. . our stone here is gearing up to become the first country from the former soviet

a period of imbalance growth and economic overheating despite a painful struggle to get it here to stand in government has brought the euro to its peoples doorstep. but first only a more than other countries the crown represents something uniquely cherished by its people because of the short eighteen year history independence both political and economic. i would like to start by expressing my appreciation for this story in chrome we should be proud of our country and our nation many estonians feel this mr alger but many also say they can accept its disappearance if the loss of control over their country's financial instruments really worries them. when we get the euro will be hostage of the stability or instability of the whole euro system. meaning that paying for those groceries in a stone year could become a whole lot harder tom bottom party. the vice president has been wounded in
