other chance for concrete results on the world's most pressing issue the leaders did propose to continue to work together but very little headway on those so-called currency wars that great divide between east and west in this battle over the bar. the world at war the weapon currency. the fallout trade imbalance the world's paying i mean the world is paying the price for the asset bubbles that are being blown throughout the emerging markets and this high stakes battle for global exchanges it's china versus the u.s. on the western front the fed pumping six hundred billion bucks into the american economy the valuing the dollar while slamming china for not readily revaluing its you want on the eastern front the chinese position is well you're depreciating the dollar why should we really value the removal of the chinese currency which the us keeps on insisting on so it's really a standoff one that smacks of double standards it's absolutely true that the united

states of late has made don't mess to clean self-serving policy that was shortsighted and that did not consider the rest of the world and this set up the sole summit but despite global outrage with u.s. fiscal policy they got more of a high level silent treatment than any kind of fight right now it's the world against the united states and in terms of an agreement to deal with the currency war nuns going to happen there is no interest coming from china or germany the two other key players to solve this problem not interested or protecting interest. and that was before the session even started obama might have guessed there would be no compromising china wasn't budging and germany and export giant defense its right not to surrender its strength by spending more abroad to appease u.s. calls to help economic recovery much of europe seems to be sitting back to. in
12:02 pm
watching how this will all play out i think they are trying to be defensive and that's a weak position right now russia sees itself as a mediator and hopes multi currency reserves will replace currency wars your should . i believe that the threat of a currency will breaking out will significantly decrease following today's summit we have reasons to be optimistic about the future the group of twenty did agree to develop early warning indicators to prevent economic turmoil and gradually move on currency the question now is not enough to prevent this cas class from getting out of control. anderson our correspondent there let's bring dr victoria put over into the conversation she's a political analyst for the moscow state university of international relations thanks for taking the time had to be with the smarts appreciate it well as we've heard there a lot of positive talk nor lot of positive action you know though the g. twenty leaders agree the currency wars must be stopped but are they really going to
12:03 pm
do anything about it. well that's actually the biggest question i am not very very optimistic about it i mean they couldn't have it announced anything different than that because there's already is quite a huge. desire to see in the world regarding what's happening in europe and not only and regarding their development of a real real currency war so if they didn't come up to the any agreement on the g twenty seven it didn't say that that would have made it really a real blow for the investors and for the markets so they had to smooth with this but i'm not sure if all of the substantial disagreements i actually rolled ruled out and if they go to follow it but that's where the peer review they introduce into this. process so i do take place two years later so i hope it will it was somehow although i remember. they agreed that protectionist measures
12:04 pm
would be taken and it still. according to w t o's standards some of them were not taken by their countries w. to get members but on the other hand there were introduced a lot of cover to measures that can be also regarded as a protectionist so and then most of the country still followed the pseudo been protectionist so i'm not sure they will be very positive and very fulfilling in their currency is stopping the currency way as well and dogs of course remind spot between washington and china what about the double standards from washington i want beijing to stop keeping use exchange rate but of course if the u.s. is depreciated with dollar as it is doing anyway why should the chinese reflect its currency. well at least according to their final documents the united states has hold o. the reserve currency promised to be more vigilant so their recently announcement
12:05 pm
both by their federal reserve system probably wouldn't be. taken but in case and to push continues depreciating its currency of course china shouldn't undertake all those measures but i think all of that if all the countries follow the suit and if all the countries go and measure their cars it could put into the market economy then it will work but. i mean that's about currency war that's about what we just stop bravia slee so i think both of them should stop all the measures they're talking about and china still has it promise it should forster it should go further with. good to bush it is currency and as well as united states shouldn't say as we say turn its printer money printer then and that it will work otherwise nothing they agreed or no or at all they pretend to each year would be real. and
12:06 pm
would. continue to collapse not for very many years the world would use to those cheap chinese goods the cheap labor force talented and so on if they'd like you to prove more costly in the future how's that going to affect the rest of the world. well for the rest of the world of course. it will be negative for regular consumer for common consumerism but it can it also can be rather negative for the chinese economy as well because we know that it's slowed down a little and so it's in the inflation rate has grown over the expectations so if it labor is not as cheaper than elongate if it's a dish no cost to cheney's experts that can be. broadly oh good in short time for economists as well but it will be worse for regular because the full public consumers i believe end up for the chinese economy who is
12:07 pm
actually their moral who is an engine for current recovery one of the engines of the current economy this can slow down and it's that's why it can no hamper i believe put in danger. really by garous recovery of the world economy as a whole and of course the u.s. argument here is that if it prospers then everyone prospers that would not be the same argument for china as well or any of the other economic powerhouses. well i think ido it courting to like some theoretical. though i go to the theories if if they're everybody in the in their poland quite is trying to just. make its own share bigger without considering the other so it's not been serious prospering that it will lead to certain benefits for. someone
12:08 pm
could prosperous the china or beat any other powerhouse but it will eventually lead to a shrinking of their world by toto by so i think this is actually true if it's to top it in only about not only china early united states or anybody else in particular it's true only if it's taken in concert all powers all together yes of course in different speeds different. terms but otherwise if if somebody is trying to take advantage of this event it's the but there is it will lead to. the problem you know how they could have in the program tonight dr victoria from our program list from the moscow state university of international relations thanks. russia newspapers revealed the ten russian agents expelled by the u.s. this summer were betrayed by their own boss president medvedev says the relations are no surprise and that the and that he was aware of the events all along r.t.c.

12:10 pm
people suspected of being russian secret agents all were found guilty by a u.s. court and deported in exchange for four men serving time in russia themselves convicted of being foreign spies it was never going to stay out of the news for a long the story instantly made headlines especially since the russian president's first official trip to the u.s. had just come to an end it's thought colonel sort of back off left russia to america just a few days before that movie of the visit and according to some reports a few months before that he was offered a promotion at work which could have seen him subjected to a lie detector test that some believe is why he rejected the job offer instead it suggested he turned the other way way turning in his associates the media quickly found its favorite among the group of deported agents young rich and beautiful on a chapman was deemed the russian james bond girl but did see flashes draw focus
12:11 pm
away from the real super agent in the group mikail which in course was still in the shadows just as he had been for the past four decades that is true this is an amazing story it doesn't only have a trailer but a true hero as wells and the two absolute opposites i'm talking about with some coffee and his fantastic story that he left the soviet union in the nineteen sixty s first to spain and then to south america working as a photographer he eventually married and moved to the us changing his name to one it said he continues we denied being a russian agent until colonel sure well presented secret documents that he then revealed his true identity but intelligence experts seem naming and shaming russian operatives was probably not in the prime target. that. was probably a us agent for a long time him self and i'm sure this whole story was instigated by the american secret service the two presidents are were. to restart relations and some people
12:12 pm
are obviously against the timing of this scandal perfectly. it puts another name in the frame for the russian intelligence service that's still trying to establish how a massive decades long secret operation could fall port so easily seemingly at the hands of one man you've got this going on r t moscow come up a few minutes time tonight the girls were snatched from the street and forced into marriage we've got that story stealing the five is known as name custom in russia's chechen republic will tell you what the authorities are doing now to stamp it out. first human rights activists working with palestinians say they're under pressure from israel which claims the stoking the conflict there the interior ministry's stopped issuing permits to many forcing them to work illegally now paulus lee has been meeting activists who say the accusations are groundless and that israel regards any palestinian supporter as an enemy.
12:13 pm
they're the visitors israel doesn't want activists from around the world who come here to photograph and protest palestinian suffering while most of the n.g.o.s only bring more fuel to the conflict make it much more harder to solve the conflict bring more hate to the conflict and they have huge he kidnapped the terrorists human right which is why from the beginning of the year the israeli ministry of interior started with drawing with permits from international n.g.o.s oxfam save the children and medicine some pontiff have all been affected everybody who voices a pro study and view anybody who supports justice propels the ends and palestinian refugees is an enemy of israel and says pro quo a terrorist i simply don't buy it and i don't think there's evidence of it someone

12:15 pm
denunciation of israel there has been no evidence whatsoever and no cases that anyone's heard of a people in n.g.o.s committing any kind of violence but a stimulant throwing stones on stones and the grenades i'm on idea of soldiers and was helping them you see a blonde girl from switzerland though i don't know where eighty mormeck spinnin guards are for six months and plans to stay six more he's a volunteer with the international solidarity movement which israel claims has terrorist links they therefore want to cross into the west bank is a human rights groups that are credible throughout the world and yet they are being stopped from entering many times in i mean the un report richard falk was stopped from entering so this stretches up to the united nations for many n.g.o.s the challenge remains how to draw attention to the work they do without getting kicked out of the country many israelis continue to question the work they doing in the first place policy r.t.

12:17 pm
reports from a practice that's tearing families apart it is a moment of families torn apart. and which here remains a ritual rather than an outrage the man simply chooses the woman he wants and forcibly takes her but the kidnapping of one young girl called a man went terribly wrong magazine puzzler i knew she went shocking good gag. loans we had it good outside and saw her being kidnapped yes she was shouting we saw. the kidnapper and his accomplice grabbed a man jumped into a car and sped away but a short way down the road they crashed into a big truck. stolen a young girl. when they were driving here they crashed in the old. school first it was an awful tragedy the car was just a piece of metal you couldn't tell what car it was. some say kidnapping brights runs and occasional blood religious leaders in chechnya strongly disapprove and no
12:18 pm
laws have been brought in to corrupt the practice because that is as i'm able to give the koran church and never had such as this is. every friday i say during the sermon. this is being seen. and those who commit it will be punished as during this life and on the judgement day. and. the girls who have been kidnapped rarely bring this matter to a courtroom as such a case may be considered it is grazed by all but they never forget about it result i went through the experience forty years ago should i have to shop and was heading home when it happened the news they weren't taking me away and i didn't even know who was kidnapping me it was. admiral man in the car and then you know one only on the second day did i find out who i was telling people in the. reason i remembers the day she spent not knowing what was coming next lost and frightened
12:19 pm
she had no choice but to stay with her kidnapper chris youngest daughter was almost her age two months later resign or ran away but her life was changed forever it which is. this really is the big tragedy because your life doesn't belong to you when you long you can't mend it almost if you were kidnapped girl even if you spend two or three days there and return home you're not considered a virgin you belong to someone your so there was a few but now trichoniscus don't tell funda practice what the new laws. i think lose lose for the global issue i think many families where girls are brought up to feel themselves musak you are probably in love right in lovers will face a prison sentence and have to be over so it is sold in dollars in fines to the girl's family even religious leaders forcing a girl to marry her kidnapper will be punished isn't all there appears to be a strong support goes intentional or you just see whether the old tradition has been ended only on paper or in reality to absolutely heart so are our genes from grassley. determine it's time rushes finance minister shares his thoughts on the
