12:34 pm
the vast majority of egyptians remain bitterly hard and it's constantly deteriorating do you think there is a possibility that egypt will experience another way of mass protests this time inspired by economic demands what are the prospects for egyptian state or considering the influence of the region. it is true i was russian ambassador to egypt for over six years and i saw the social economic and political situation unfold in the world's largest out of country we are deeply concerned about egypt's future but we are also aware that any crucial decisions taken should only be taken by the people employing a democratic procedure be it a referendum plebiscite or a nationwide election did you know that there has been an action plan for reform drafted in egypt which includes reforming the electoral system for both parliamentary and presidential elections introducing amendments to the constitution adjusting existing legislation and adopt an important new laws that will affect this social economic and political aspects of life for the out of community we who
12:35 pm
have our gyptian friends achieve progress and success on their passes reforms we have seen political struggle flared up among various social and political forces including islamist movements we are following all these events very closely we think that the best way to result. any problem is to start an inclusive nationwide dialogue. order your turn to syria now which is one of the most difficult problems in the region the west responded negatively to the statement and the actions of the syrian government the us tightening its sanctions against syria the un resolution is being used to probe the situation for the possibility of military intervention how high are the chances that western countries will indeed unleash a military campaign against syria. we realize that city is going through a very difficult stage of development similar to a few other countries in the region and internal civil conflict between the government and part of society political social and economic problems that are greeted both in terms of numbers and complexity we think the best way to deal with
12:36 pm
these problems is a nationwide dialogue combined with crucial political social and economic reforms we support all efforts aimed at launching and promoting a substandard of dialogue between the government and the opposition we adhere to the notion that both parties should abstain from violence and engage in constructive dialogue in an up to speed of cooperation we wish them progress he said as he said the syrian government and president assad have delivered a number of statements on the reform plan for instance the president's speech to damascus university where he presented the action plan for reform during our negotiations with the syrian leader we insisted that it should be implemented step by step in a consistent manner promptly and efficiently we also call in the sitting government to keep their promises and live up to the hopes and aspirations of the people there were adequately expressed in the mass rallies that. russia has refused to even discuss the draft resolution on syria proposed by france what is the reason behind such a tough stance especially with regard to the fact that moscow did not stone wall
12:37 pm
the un security council resolution on libya are there any other ways of resolving the syrian crisis with international help. we believe that the city and should address their problems as part of their domestic. and this is an internal civil conflict and it should not be internationalized as for the situation in libya of course every country is unique in terms of its particular situation the background of its conflict the form and the scale of public protest cetera on the other hand we should learn our lessons this tree first the un resolution on libya you've mentioned we are all witness to it and we still see it neither the number of international players tend to digress from the strict observation of both the instructions and the spirit of these resolutions therefore we are not really concerned the such loose interpretations could only result in making some of the opposition circles tighten their position and opt for a tougher approach which is by no means opposed of achievement in terms of finding a mutually acceptable solution. as far as the opposition is concerned international
12:38 pm
observers point out that the demands of the syrian opposition are quite in sync with the demands put forward by the west could this be considered as evidence of some coordinated process in place and under such circumstances what meaning that the syrian delegations visit. other. cities the way i see it the syrian opposition is not homogenous that is internal opposition that is external opposition and there are forces that indeed translate to a certain degree the opinion of some part of the public different think that we cannot talk of opposition as a uniform force some of it is leftist some stick to socialist or communist views that is the liberal opposition and islamist opposition represented by the muslim brotherhood and other islamic forces different i think this matters a lot and makes a great difference in terms of our contacts with various parties i must say that we maintain contact with practically all of syria's social and political forces left. europe is becoming increasingly wary and disappointed with nato military campaign
12:39 pm
in libya the conflict shows no sign of ending the plight of the civilian population is deteriorating radically what measures would you consider necessary for the conflict and parties and the international community to take in order to bring about a solution both in political and humanitarian terms. but from the very start we have urged the parties in the conflict to cease all military action declared a truce and work at a sustainable solution for peace in libya in order to kick start the process of political reconciliation in this regard we have highly appreciated the contribution of the african union which prepared a rule of law for reconciliation in libya the u.n. secretary general's envoy for libya is also contributing a lot to this process having come up with a number of additional settlement proposals addressing both military and political aspects we actively encourage in promoting these constructive ideas put forth by the african union and the united nations as you know there have been several meetings in moscow with representatives from both tripoli and benghazi
12:40 pm
a russian presidential special envoy traveled to tripoli on benghazi we also maintain contacts with various third parties as for the humanitarian situation in libya you are right that it is a matter of serious concern for the entire international community in recent days we have provided additional. aid shipping food medicines and other humanitarian items to both tripoli and benghazi. as we discuss events in this region we can't avoid touching upon its key problem i mean the palestinian issue new generations of israelis and palestinians have been mature it seems the middle east peace process was washed but we still haven't seen any feasible progress and the goshi asians would you say this is a deadlock or is there a way to get the peace process on track and what would it require. because like you said the palestinian issue is a key issue for the entire region i believe that regardless of the arab spring and
12:41 pm
the developments in particular countries in the region the palestinian issue will remain pivotal for the entire arab world and for the region in general i also think that it will remain pivotal for our israeli partners as well i spent five years as an ambassador to israel myself i am personally acquainted with quite a few top ranking officials both in the israeli government on the palestinian national authority as well as the palestinian liberation organization and the numerous problems tinian factions and i think that everybody realizes that the palestinians and israelis are bound by destiny itself to live side by side as you know russia advocates establishing an independent palestinian state as soon as possible for this state to live alongside israel maintaining peace and security we are committed to this purpose both as a permanent member of the security council and as an octave participant of the middle east quartet there was a ministerial meeting of the quartet in washington recently which featured a very specific detailed discussion on the situation with regard to the palestinian israeli truck that we are certainly concerned with the negotiations been stalled at
12:42 pm
the moment the negotiation is currently suspended who still hope that both parties will find a way to agree on resuming the talks with a view to establishing an independent palestinian state as soon as possible and to resolve all of the remaining issues in order to reach a final settlement between israel and the palestinians. you were russia's ambassador to israel for five years and to egypt for six you're well informed about the situation there tell us what is the present role of the mediators in the palestinian israeli negotiations would you say that the present format has exhausted its capacities and we should look for new ways what is your assessment of the quartet's latest meeting in washington where. the quartet is a perfect format for providing international assistance to the israeli palestinian peace process i happened to attend that meeting personally as part of the russian delegation which was headed by foreign minister sergei lavrov and i witnessed a very constructive discussion among all the participants ministerial meeting the
12:43 pm
county date a comprehensive analysis of the situation and identify the reasons behind the current stalling negotiations they also discussed various future scenarios off the situation and most importantly the members of the quartet agreed to keep in touch intensively to keep an exchange of opinions and proposals running all the time all members of the quartet have committed to keep talking to both parties in the dispute this is based on the understanding that there probably will be one more meeting of the quartet in september once the u.n. general assembly convenes for a regular session in new york and all of the members of the quartet will be there to discuss the situation one more time this proposal came from the russian foreign minister in the hope that the parties be come out with a certain adjustments to the positions so as to be able to resume the peace process if that is not the case the quarter we discussed other options for dealing with the situation and failing to the initiative that is currently being discussed by the palestinian public and has already been endorsed by the arab league which is the idea of taking the issue of establishing an independent palestinian state to the
