12:14 am
president could probably go through was so adamant the march north and unify the country that he simply refused his signature so if we talk about the peace treaty and the north koreans have been requesting and suggesting that these three to be signed would be united some of the united states first of all seems nine hundred seventy five. probably over do you want to climb on that all parties hope to sit down and sort out their differences probably south korea should participate in the republic of korea is more than anyone interested in signing the peace treaty. as you can assure investors and the new warriors. we're going to break out. i believe that the peace has to the korean war has to be ended at all and in order to achieve this we called woman college in caldwell structures in the region in general have to be dismantled. while south korea and the u.s.

right professor the petrov from the university of sydney thanks very much for sharing your views here with us. russia's envoy to nato says he's disappointed after talks with u.s. senators in washington thanks to republican lawmakers have and are committed to seeing moscow as a rival not a partner his visit as part of fresh efforts by russia to revive talks in a common missile defense system in europe by the american side insist on grading his own shield which it claims is to combat missile attacks from so-called rogue states russia feels the project could compromise its national security something the u.s. has dismissed major gazan told r.t. that washington's actions are violating moscow's personal space. but if you there are questions that remain unanswered if missile threats against europe come from the south why is the us placing part of its military infrastructure in the north close to russia's borders this is the question that we can't get an answer to when
12:18 am
we ask for legal guarantees that the system is not aimed at russia we're told there's a big conflict between republicans and democrats in congress and they start to explain that conflict but we're not interested in that what's important for us is that the u.s. is behind this project and they should provide security for all partners russia is very flexible if for some fabricated political reasons they've rejected our suggestion to integrate our means of anti missile defense then there's another scheme that could be cooperation between two independent systems if nato wants to defend itself that's no problem but if russia wants to provide its own security so be it otherwise it's like when you come home and discover somebody else's bodyguard sitting in your bedroom he's been sent to provide your security who's going to like that so if suggestions are rejected and it's understood that iran is just a reason to have the plan russia's nuclear potential is the real target then russia will come up with its own military response which nobody is going to like. as i
