a person first southern european or arabic origin but now this is despite claims in the western media that was very quick to jump to conclusions about the fact that it was someone from the north this you know obviously when the bombings happened just a couple of days after a terrorist group from the north caucasus claimed responsibility now with this attack we haven't yet had anyone claim responsibility because they said we see a lot of speculation in western media a lot of conclusions very short on the ground with facts and we can hear now from the head of the chechen republic about this reaction from the international community that is very quick to a conclusion when it comes to that region. it's always this way they're always in a hurry to told the entire world that the caucus is a place where there is no order and people are ready to kill anyone as if we were all murderers and terrorists who present. people as criminals to the international

12:04 am
pm at the exact time the blast happened and he was able to attend and of course as we said in the international reaction international condemnation of this attack and the investigation is now going to continue and we've already seen the strong words from president of a different prime minister putin when this attack happened already being put into action we've had a number of firings of top officials within the interior ministry working in the area of trials but we know that they're going to be looking very closely at the operation of the child and the airport authorities and they're going to continue to do that to find out exactly who is involved exactly who's responsible and hold them accountable. all right sara thanks very much indeed for bringing us the latest on the surface there. and scientology who is pakistani bureau chief for the asia times online says an international terror hub is behind the moscow era bombing

airport rather there was a plan by the. i was recently in northern no one is. and i gathered. organizations like islamic movement of uzbekistan and other. groups and church and groups. of one is on the whole did our duty and the pope is not targeting the northern of one is. actually. two words. one americans were you know started reducing the presence in of one istanbul russia would be the most important regional player in the one a storm. ivan eland a senior fellow at the in a panacea to washington d.c. points out that despite representing what is commonly known as islamist religion is not necessarily the principal reason behind their actions people may have been
12:06 am
trained in pakistan and the al qaeda areas the problem that you have with those areas is there are many groups that are there and they all have different causes that they are fighting it seems like all these people are islamised what we generally cause law most but they are they often have separate goals so a lot of these terrorists groups are local for instance al qaida focuses on the us other groups focus as i mentioned i'm india so it's usually despite their religion that's not usually the main factor and after the bombing in the airport nato and russia have vowed to work together to fight terrorism marty spoke to nato military committee chairman admiral dipali and says the fight against terrorism remains a top priority. we have already agreed that the fight against terrorism is one of the meaning of vocal preaching the need to rush a worker program what happened in the monday he's in even more and other witnesses
12:07 am
to dance and so easy increasing our that diminish to hold together to fight terror because terrorists as no like that is not terrorism is still a food still and we need to work together to counter it to win it that's what we have to do old international community together. and following the ratification of the strategic arms reduction treaty by moscow and washington russia nato is top military officials to discuss joint missile defense in europe the two agreed in lisbon last november how to cooperate in the creation of a system to have the russian general staff nicol on a card says there should be a clear understanding of the outcome of the project. building missile defense systems in europe is complicated because it affects the global stability reached through the new start treaty the russian proposals have unfortunately not been mit's with full understanding first nato suggests building
12:08 am
the systems stage by stage the logical that's unacceptable for us we must understand what russia's final role in building missile defense systems is nato in the us said we should stop to analyze all the threats and challenges and to understand how we'll cooperate this gives us confidence that we'll be building those missile defense systems together if not the consequences will be disastrous. and building global security has become more likely where the signing of the new start treaty says your deputy director and c.e.o. of the national security network. it's very beneficial to all involved the u.s. and russia have now fully engaged in the restart of the relationship and put substance behind it a lot of good rhetoric over the last year and a half now we actually have an agreement a bipartisan agreement from capitol hill also is a very unique moment and so we see an american russian consensus around the key
12:09 am
issue of security for both countries there's a clear interest in moving past the cold war and security threats are dynamic now we have terrorism and as you noted in moscow on monday these these threats come from a very long arm potentially from countries outside of nato and outside of europe the hope is that this will create a new dynamic and create new opportunities now that everyone who cares about arms control and is looking at nuclear weapons as a serious issue sees it the u.s. and russia can make progress it does give an opportunity for a new thinking about how do you dress this in two thousand and eleven and what you are coming to you live from moscow still look on the program making the see on the anniversary of the liberation of the nazis largest death camp a joint effort by google. to read the masses on the atrocities of the holocaust. now look out why ordinary people in america don't share the optimism your president

sought to instill in his state of the union address. the russian president has opened the world economic forum in davos shifting discussions towards global security we have proposed new ways should be worked out to calculate the risks that threaten the world artie's lore and it listens to the president's speech. today is the first full day of. world economic forum but the tone for the rest of the meeting was really set by the keynote speech made last night by russian president dmitri medvedev he was introduced by the head of the forum klaus schwab who asked the audience to stand and observe a minute's silence in memory of the victims of monday's bomb blast at domodedovo airport understandably president medvedev then started his speech by talking about that bomb blast he told us about the way that it had shaken society and created indignation throughout the world and he thanked again world leaders who had sent
12:11 am
him messages messages of solidarity and he also had some quite defiant words to say both to the terrorists and to the world at large sears rick dorsey. those who committed this terrible act targeting citizens of different countries expected their actions to bring russia to its knees but they thought he moved on then to talk about environmental disasters and how the world is potentially just one serious environmental disaster away from complete meltdown he was talking about events like the icelandic volcano that erupted stopping all flights inside europe he was also talking about things like the extreme heat. last summer which caused all these very serious forest fires russia has proposed an early warning system to do with those kinds of disasters and the aim is that the world will be able to work together to. he also talked about wiki leaks and he said that he himself had read the wiki leaks revelations so-called about russia and he said that they seemed to him as if they could have come from open source isn't there was nothing very new
12:12 am
that. ultimately i think the wiki leaks issue should make the spirit of international relations feel fear even though some states consider this an illegal activity the impact of this story is quite positive as for what was leaked some may find it interesting to others it's no secret as for me what i've read about right. has been nothing new to me and he also struck a slightly humble nature he said that he recognized that russia has come in for some criticism from other world leaders and from from media organizations he wants to point out the advances that russia has made in terms of legislation corporate governance the application of the rule of law and eradicating corruption but he admitted that there was still work to be done on earth to the speech we talked to some people about what they thought about what made it it had said how they'd received his speech but i was very struck by how humble and measured the speech is a very measured assessment of where russian stands and where it needs to go.
12:13 am
opening financial markets and inviting investors from the world to come to. russia and be part of the russian development i think he sees. very very to the point you know it's also very one of the biggest sessions to be held today will be a session titled russia's next steps to modernization and that was supposed to be attended by president medvedev but he has had to go back to moscow to deal with the aftermath of monday's bomb blast at the airport say first steps apartments to either suv all us will take his place to talk about how to modernize russia. and we'll bring you more coverage of the ongoing summit in our business bulletin also later in the program financial analyst max kaiser is focusing on the economic aspects of what's being decided in switzerland. about instituting one hundred trillion dollars of new debt that's one hundred trillion dollars of worth of

12:15 am
was as jews were being persecuted local population got drawn into that process of persecution in the benefit but clearly from it and. was of elected to give shelter to jews who were trying to avoid the german network but seems to me that and they said it isn't was a fairly well ingrained element of people's world outlook at the time and see. to say first of all that. they should be isolated and things should be taken away from them this was this was a kind of a set of slogans which local people have accepted with. some interest so to speak and then slowly they were drawn into assisting in various ways in the process of round up and occasionally unfortunately also in direct

solves anything killings there were especially in the east it was actually a directive from. the police chief at the time. to in the violate the local population to be active in acts of programs killings of the troops and unfortunately there was quite a response at that time and one day on from barack obama's state of the union address his rhetoric filled speech is being worn over but many doubt their president's rosy depiction of the u.s. or if the president's words will become reality are just pristine for is our use of the average american. you can find them at the crossroads in truck stops of most small cities in america and just about everyone at some point has stopped in for breakfast served twenty four hours a day. at the waffle house this one in dumfries virginia draws in truck drivers and
