international friendly described how fans felt about russia getting the world cup but does the country with a rich football tradition stand a chance of becoming hosts. the dutch coach of the national team certainly hope so even though his home country is among the big. we need the world to. put the infrastructure. because the majority of the. many experts agree with that notion believing that russia lags behind its rivals in terms of food infrastructure but that is about to change according to those behind moscow's bid this is the denominator stadio moscow's oldest this is where history's greatest football goalkeeper russian spent his glittering career the game's legend did not live to see his home ground being transformed it is now under construction to become an ultra morden stadium.
5:03 pm

5:04 pm
anyway but i think it will be the biggest victory for my country if it gets this world cup it's a game brings people together. it's a huge storm in europe even in the south africa is a great success you know and something like that is a huge thing and i'm sure the people are. experts say thursday's voting in zurich will be completely unpredictable the british press however believes that russia's bid and the joint one of spain portugal are favored to win the russian delegation hopes it will be able to impress defeat executive committee just as russia's olympic bid team did in guatemala to win the winter games for sochi. russia ski r.t. reporting from moscow. well there's been a lot of attention given to russia the russian bid especially from the british press one of the main questions coming from them is whether prime minister vladimir putin is coming well now he said that he will be staying home and he's also made
5:05 pm
comments on the media allegations of corruption in a fee fight now joining us in the discussion is r.t. sports presenter andrew farmer no address what what impact do you think it will have on russia's bid well it sounds like bad news doesn't it that mr putin is decided to stay home but actually could be a p.r. masterstroke because he's actually sounding very sympathetic towards fee for in the executive committee saying he's staying at home because he doesn't want to put pressure on them he's then come out to criticize the timing of the media campaign which is alleged corruption within feet for saying that this whole event which is here really to decide who will host the next two world cups has turned into something of a smear campaign so i think members of the fee for executive committee hearing these remarks this evening could actually be quite appreciative ok well he's not coming but russia does have reinforcements right. here along with chelsea owner roman abramovich they'll be pushing rush's case despite peter not being here it's
5:06 pm
worth mentioning that russia still leaves this race in the minds of the bookmakers they're the clear favorite still with england second they have their prime minister david cameron here along with prince william and david beckham pushing their case then it's spain and portugal back in five to one they were the joint leaders at one stage with russia i don't know what happened there and then we have belgium and holland bringing up the rear but what's more is going to be a big day the contenders for you twenty eight hundred world cup will be making their final presentation to russia is going to make their presentation last now that could be a good pick some say that that's actually an advantage for russia i think it could be because there will be the last message that the chief executive will hear before they make their vote another point worth making is that sepp blatter the fee for president has the casting vote on this occasion and what that means is a very sad. voting and the winning bid will need a majority extreme majority and twelve votes now it could mean in the final round to be two teams left to cheat between and they could both get eleven votes speech now that happens and the casting vote will be left to mr blatter he has made very
5:07 pm
positive noises about her she's been over the last few weeks to who knows if it comes down between it comes down to two teams to choose between he could push it to russia but right well there you have it the race is very very close and i've spoken with a lot of people basically the essence is nobody really knows who is going to where . she's not enough. when something really crucial when you want to get down to brass tacks. special coverage. is almost gone pete rose finally sold looms on an international face off for the future of the two thousand eighteen world cup. find out the whole thing the world's largest sports event live on a larger. question. more news this morning of the eurozone country another threat of an imminent bailout it's
5:08 pm
only is the third largest economy that uses the euro and now there are fears it to make star plunging the same direction as greece and ireland where the euro fall in the amount of money it cost the lens a debt ridden countries is rising dramatically spain portugal and belgium are also at risk of being pulled into the crisis doubts about the future of the single currency and the e.u. itself have been intensified to buy fresh protests leaping across europe with people angry facing savage cuts to pay for the european parliament member nigel farage spoke to as he said countries are trapped inside the euro zone and should get out to save the economy. if spain went down remember that the debt by god is about seven times the size of our them so we'd be talking there about three hundred fifty billion euros and italy bigger still and so you get to. point where there is no more bailout money where the euro in its current form would cease to exist i don't know whether that will happen in the next few weeks but it remains a real possibility when arlen joined the euro there were people like me saying
5:09 pm
there was no benefit for the country as most of their overseas trade was denominated in sterling or dollars anyway and that to join the euro they would have to have artificially low interest rates and for the first seven or eight years of their membership of the euro irish rates were three to four percent lower than they would have been had the irish kept the point i what that meant was that the property boom became the most massive speculative bubble and that's why the bust is as bad as it is and now adam finds herself in the euro where euro zone interest rates are going to head up over the next couple of years at the very moment that they're trapped inside a deflationary downward spiral what we're talking about is free trade is the ability of companies to buy and sell goods from our next door neighbor in countries look the swiss do that without being you members little we do that without being e.u. members so if what the united kingdom wants is free trade she can have that without being part of a club that makes three thousand new rules for us every year and cost us
5:10 pm
a membership fee of nearly fifty million pounds a day and the seven billion pounds that the british government has said it will guarantee for the irish frankly is money poured down the drain what we should be doing a sign to our friends in our land we will help you come out of the euro and get back to having your own currency otherwise frankly we're wasting this money mr rosso said i think two years ago he said that the european union was the first ever nonmilitary empire and what empires try to do is expand so they'll have it into the euro and they'll try and make join the european union next year over year after they think that all the while they're expanding people will say well it must be going well and it will take their attention away from what's going on with him sadly it's too late and all the opinion polls show that in germany in greece in britain and ireland and right across the european union increasingly the publics of europe are holding the political class that have done this to them in increasing
5:11 pm
contempt. thoughts there of nigel farage and watch that full interview he'd like to catch more of it on our web page out t. dot com it's also streaming i can chew chalice well. in a meeting with former secretary of state colin powell president obama was once again urged for the senate to ratify a nuclear arms reduction treaty with russia in the absence of start without the new start treaty being ratified by the senate we do not have a verification mechanism to ensure that we know what the russians are going. and they don't know what we're doing and when you have on certainty in the area where weapons that's a much more dangerous world with russia has cooperated with us on critical issues to our national security white sanctions and the relationships and trust that are built from the new start treaty spill over into a whole host of other national security issues that are of vital importance to
5:12 pm
american. republicans have tried to stall the ratification process since the signing of the deal by the russian and american presidents back in april a heavyweight of american politics colin powell supports the bombers initiative and stressed the need to verify russian nuclear activity something that would be impossible if the agreement fails and we just heard powell said that all concerned had been addressed by the executive in that there was no need to interfere with the process in fact if occasion. it's been hailed as a coup for u.s. national security the capture of a terror suspect accused of planning to set of a bomb at an annual christmas tree lighting ceremony but as a tease in a stitch reports next many believe it's a case of entrapment with agents having groomed the nineteen year old somali american for the crime. this winter season the f.b.i. celebrates the reason the arrest of a potential terrorist but a little something is wrong with this picture over the eighteen months they
5:13 pm
cultivated him the alleged plot or as a teenager the bomb he planted a fake and the f.b.i. allegedly manipulated him into committing a crime entrapment is not illegal entrapment is getting someone to do something that they would normally do the guy named mohamed had his e-mails tracked by authorities while they waited for the right time to get him to act against u.s. national security or the f.b.i. as dave said with him every step of the way because he started to say he was fifteen years old for years x. amount of money and efforts from the f.b.i. later the sting mission comes to a close the nineteen year old is accused of plotting to blow up a christmas tree in portland oregon the language used against him in f.b.i. records is all too familiar to the sensitive american easier and even though the device was. here spreads like bacteria the threat was very very real. media images were quick to portray what could have and would have happened
5:14 pm
had the bomb been real. becoming yet again not a watchdog but an echoing voice of authorities along this terrorism stuff i think is kind of embarrassing for most of the media the way the f.b.i. has official word on whatever is just taken as the truth but the obvious truth to some is what's not addressed at all when it comes to national security and terrorism it just sort of stops all conversation it's chilling conversation you immediately assume i want to be protected the f.b.i. will protect me and and therefore whatever it says is true when often it isn't the case dubbed the christmas tree plot or is far from the first to bring to light the practice of entrapment in the u.s. convincing pursuing. and tricking the eventually accused has become systematic according to some and they can come after you and they can manufacture crimes against you and they can make up a whole case and put you through the whole thing and eventually if they can
5:15 pm
persuade a jury that this manufactured case is valid you can go to jail for a very long time and with the case being built against muhammad not just by officials but by the media too what if it had a strong event at its christmas tree lighting the destiny of the u.s. citizen turned water with a little help from the f.b.i. seems clear to the problem is that you know in court cases people juries believe the f.b.i. they are the f.b.i. they have been you know we've been indoctrinated to believe that the f.b.i. can do no wrong of course there are many many cases where the f.b.i. has done a lot of wrong the rule of law enforcement is to catch the bad guys so that the good guys we'll see for a good one criminals are not just caught by officials but also created the ideal national security becomes just is made up as a means of reaching. this issue going to. court will do stories in brief to this thursday morning pakistani officials have dismissed claims of the country's nuclear
5:16 pm
arsenal could fall into the wrong hands those fears came from recent revelations by the whistle blowing web site wiki leaks giving details of more than two hundred thousand private u.s. diplomatic cables many analysts and politicians though said the leaks offered little the wasn't already known the founder of the web site julian the son is currently wanted by interpol for questioning over the alleged sex offense which he denies and says it's part of a smear campaign. europe's big freeze is set to continue with heavy snow fall covers much of the continent in poland the cold fronts claimed the lives of eight over this people as the temperatures drop to minus twenty there was also huge disruption to travel with the cancellation of hundreds of flights in the u.k. and stranded passengers having to find alternative routes on the other side of the coin as you can see agree sick. record heat for the time of year with an seasonably high temperatures a result the weather people saying of african sand being blown in very nice if it's happening to you well. moscow wants to become an equal partner in the new plans for
5:17 pm
european missile defense otherwise it would force russia to increase its nuclear arsenal to defend its borders that's according to the premier vladimir putin who's been discussing the country's security policy with an interview with american t.v. host larry king now when asked about the latest we wave of wiki leaks to putin said it was no catastrophe because as he put it it was a poorly kept secret however he did lash the assessment of his relations with president medvedev saying the comparison to batman and robin was arrogance and unethical to put his interview airs within several hours now in the us and he is incidentally likely to be the last statesman to appear on larry king live before the veteran t.v. star retires. the organization for security and cooperation in europe is losing its influence and needs to be modernized they are the words of russia's president dmitri medvedev who's been visiting because it can't last or not as it hosts the
5:18 pm
first summit of the fifty six member group in a decade russia are also wants to reboot relations with a group which suffered after the country withdrew from the european conventional arms treaty three years ago that decision came after the us announced its missile defense plans in europe also at the summit president medvedev has once again pushed his initiative to create a pan-european security treaty. the new treaty we have proposed would be aimed at guaranteeing common security for europe i think everyone who supports it is it's been discussed for two and a half years maybe the stereotypes of the past are still strong and this initiative is ahead of its time but it turned will inevitably come. as a major overseas summit is in full swing we get the view from the inside next the big names talk to us at r.t. we hear from the organization sacred general that chat coming right up this morning .
5:19 pm
mr bush of us thank you very much for talking to us during this summit to what extent is organization for security and cooperation in europe is interested in proposed by president. whether proposals by present medvedev had one great merit because they were sort of a wake up call that not. everybody was happy with in the family of greater europe
5:20 pm
with the current arrangements regarding security that a fresh look if fresh approach had to be given to those issues. clearly energized the discussions and you will see as you know there was a so-called call for process and i think this laid the groundwork for the efforts of the cars a german ship of see where see this year and the strong push by the covered seven ship to have this summit which we are having now and which in a way. to renovate and to give a new foundation to european security the mere fact that a fifty six hour meeting here means that they care about having a better atmosphere about each other a better climate and that they care about giving you the trust. it's a new impulse refreshing bishan to this organization you will see where they are
5:21 pm
together on equal footing where they are as equal members of the same family not as members or as this or that group where it is a russian major corporation leave organization for security and cooperation in europe as a military organization i see there are different different tracks through which a community security and greater europe can be built it will be a noisy certainly but it will be also in different organisations the fact that lisbon was a good meeting that there was a successful nato russia council meeting that there was also a successful meeting of contributors to i suffer. gives a good back to the work we are having here and i stand and they continue with contacts between the european union and the russian federation the continued contacts individual states have among themselves various combinations all these created network of good will and they would network of mutually supporting
5:22 pm
exchanges it is out of network because this continuous process of consultation incorporation that we are going to overcome current mistrust and current difficulties belonging they always say mission in the caucuses was rejects augusta georgia south and south a set here what lessons have been there and some that it is not only the receive mission of the caucasus which had or didn't have an impact on the conflict as you know there were much broader cases there was he did its duty as the early warning to be did studion term so for trying to address a crisis when it happened and may i remind you that we had no less than twenty military monitors which were present between september two thousand and eight and july two thousand and nine and which was the first ones to try and help stabilize things. so the lesson however for everybody that you cannot escape difficult issue
5:23 pm
is that you have to address a brillant loosely you have to take every opportunity to create conditions for exchange for political dialogue this is what is happening regularly in geneva this is what is happening in the contact so-called i p r at meetings between the different parties where they will see is also involved regarding station and sell so see show there is no question that it is it difficult issue but it is also an issue where there is some very hard work during including going on including here in most of the world's heroin is consumed on always seeds territory two point five million russians are addicted to drugs that come from afghanistan and increasing quantities in why is always powerless to stop the drug flow considering that the political will is there. well following the mandate we received from our
5:24 pm
ministers in two thousand and seven in madrid we have been working very seriously alongside with central asian members of the principal states of the with the to strengthen the borders between afghanistan and the central asian states by intensive training of central asian border police the customs office drugs police along with. afghanistan and the problems generated by drug trafficking are at the heart of the concerns of the worst how can russian forces help to prevent drug trafficking some afghanistan considering that russia has repeatedly said that its forces will not be sent to afghanistan but we're also working side by side with c.s.t. oh which also has a committee is there and with russian forces which are presently in the. so what is important is to have very good coordination very good coordination between
5:25 pm
international organizations where some guy corporation with c.s.d. or with c.i.s. but also was new when with the you with the council of europe when it is involved in order to all work in the same direction and to have a very positive synergy to make progress how can you respond to the claim that the security and cooperation in europe doesn't solve conflicts but rather three system . is as good as its participating states we cannot have a magic wand and because we have rules with good principles work out instant solutions there is some merit in freezing conflicts a frozen conflict is better than an active conflict and just keeping political process of parting parties discussing with each other take the example of the men's group and it says three co-chairs they have
5:26 pm
a very hard job and there was a big working strenuously in order to avoid renewed conflict but also progressively to build the principles of what may be the peace arrangement this is happening here also in a stand that may be a high level meeting with the context of say in this group and there hopefully will be this is a senseless job because it's a very demanding one for those who practice it. to mitigate the years spent create a foundation for the future and hopefully for a political solution to the conflicts thank you very much for your time sir thank you.
