4:02 am
resources but of course other countries surrounding the north for after that also wanted to get their hands on those reserves and this is how the whole race after them to get now to find out if it had exactly how much energy is at stake we can now watch this report by you can see now that. fifty billion tons of oil one thousand trillion cubic feet of gas that's enough to supply the entire world for more than a few years and it's just an estimate of what's hidden in the arctic sea bed the underwater riches of the north pole are a temptation for the five arctic states russia the us canada norway and denmark but how does one determine who gets the bigger slice of the pie so we're going to today we really need a national geography geography that would help us national interests. the territorial dispute tottered on the brink of conflict for years but lately they
4:03 am
need to fight it out seem to fade away in the arctic states the coastal states and take particular i've also talked about their stewardship responsibility that stewardship is in the interest of all mankind so at the same time there are expressions of national interest there are expressions of common interest and so really the balance is one of achieving national interests and common interests not just for the card states themselves but for the world as a whole the north pole glitters with possibilities and it's not just the arctic states that feel the pull of the region i was in the arctic in june and i was only five of the two thousand and six in the north pole and then also last year we all met with the arctic of the arctic region but represents a very important part of the world in a very fragile. environment in a fragile ecosystem that we need to protect the strategic interests in the arctic
4:04 am
is global once this northernmost part of the world is better explored there are only a few minor points where there are disputes most of this is undisputed sovereign territory there's a number of companies and i think in europe and i from like germany like you know i think kingdom and china and all those who are also very interested 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 a.c.s. to your divvying up the arctic is like walking on thin ice and the chance to tread lightly and work out existing differences is welcomed by. 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.
4:05 am
moscow they are the region that is badly affected by the climate change and the lives melting icecaps they threaten to flaws countries surrounding the north pole so it's a major concern for everyone who participates in this forum as well as also on layers that dissolved over the arctic and of course where 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 flag down of the seabed of the arctic i said that said the woman also of rage is in fact the continuation over the washington area story but the un commission said that russia needs to presents more proof on that in order to get to develop those reserves and recently canada has claimed 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
4:06 am
yet but both countries has south have said that they are going to send official request to the un commission within the next two years in order to get a final response to gets to develop their reserves meanwhile recently washed and norway have signed an agreement dividing the borders of the area around the the barren sea in the veyron syria other between them showing with their example how these kinds of disputes can be solved diplomatically and this forum is all about diplomacy and about coming to an agreement with no military zation all of. the idea of developing those. energy reserves that lie in the arctic. bringing you more than ever exclusive coverage of the international forum in moscow throughout the day here ninety. well the way deemed psychotic and

4:08 am
rough patches ever since the georgian a setting in conflict back in the year two thousand and eight and of course the possibility and nato's eastward expansion but the secretary general of nato gave a press conference where he said that it's very important for russia and nato to continue building a stronger and warmer and more trusting relationship let's take a listen to what he had to see the joint review of the twenty first century common security challenges. call peroration on afghanistan. practical corporation in triton terrorism all piracy hopefully from my point of view as star controllers corporation cherry tauriel defense today corporation with russia in addressing the challenge is no longer just an opportunity to build a better relationship with russia it has become a necessity if we want to be effective in preserving our common security now

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 about the possibility of the go. as welcomed and wanted and it's interesting that it rand 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
