international news live from moscow this is with me. hello and welcome to the program state of global politics through the eyes of russia's foreign minister spoke exclusively to sergei lavrov on topics ranging from syria's bloody war to russia good race relations. as they highlight something for us. more serious still continues to be in the center of everybody's attention so of course it was touched upon as well and the russian foreign minister stressed once again that there could be only a diplomatic solution to the conflict based on agreements reached earlier by world powers in geneva which basically call both sides of the carver to simultaneously and immediately put their weapons down start a political process and for all members of the international community to apply equal pressure on them to do so at the same time the russian foreign minister
mentioned how the syrian opposition is really diverse and how it sounds some of its groups often go to the most extreme measures like take taking hostages or conducting terrorist attacks or western contacts in the security council started to refuse. condemning terrorist attacks in syria saying that yes there is ms bed but you must take into account the overall context of what is going on in syria and why people resort to terrorist attacks it's absolutely unacceptable and this logic we all might lead us if we follow this logic might lead us to a very dangerous situation not only in the middle east but in other parts of the world russia and also said once again that moscow is not in any side of this
conflict and criticize the syrian authorities for often using unproportionate force the security forces clearly war and are prepared to face the public. protests and protests in the cities and in the villages they have been throwing you know to counter foreign aggression not to keep law and order a civilized manner the foreign minister. talked about the current state of relations with washington especially in light of the moneys deactivates recently by american lawmakers which. gives the green light for saying something a russian official suspected of being connected to human rights violations but since it's not really clear on what grounds this blacklist is being put together by many officials in moscow it's seen as an anti russian act and according to the foreign minister president obama offered to fly her to sign the law in the end he's
a hostage basically on the situation receiving some heavy pressure from the republicans simul off also noted how the election cycle in the united states in cargo is it makes it really difficult to cooperate with the country and foreign minister also talked about the security council saying how there's a need for reforming it according to a singular offer the world is continuing to become more poor arised and while some key emerging powers like brazil are really becoming heavyweight players in the world and according to the foreign minister sooner or later the u.n. security council will have to review reflect that. and more of the lover of the exclusive interview is coming your way next hour but for those of you who can't wait check it out online it's already at that r.t. dot com. president fledging

torture of political dissidents sounds all the wrong messages as your political analyst patrick henningsen says it's all about iran. the justification for this massive buildup in the middle east especially in the gulf states and. the west is blaming iran saying that because iran's pursuing nuclear ambitions or there's no proof of any to their weapons programs as such they're blaming iran for a possible nuclear arms race in the region that's a quote from david cameron only days ago so you can circumvent of iran it's certainly geopolitical you know number one priority and i think they've achieved that militarily but you know the question is. is this going to be a real military standoff or we looking at it a cold war situation were we just posturing militarily geopolitically looking for some bigger conflict down the road perhaps in a few years. meanwhile as washington miles more sanctions against iran israel is
making it clear that it's ready and willing to strike but terrorists chief ally in the region has blocked has made it plain that it will take sides in case a war is this a conference reports now on a militant function may have up asli. should be drawn right here the line beyond which lies war with iran netanyahu would like to be able to communicate to the world that the israelis are ready which he has to attack and that it will be done with the full support of the united states threat whatever the case and the tap it all but guarantee of a rapid response from another nemesis of the jewish state as moammar. the lebanese shia paramilitary group has evolved from a ragtag militia to a military and political heavyweight it's part of the so-called axis of resistance against israel referring to the alliance between hezbollah hamas syria and iran and
according to hezbollah's leader hassan nasrallah both israel and the united states would suffer a retaliation to any strike against tehran but. the response would not be limited to the israeli entity u.s. military bases in the entire region will serve as targets. so if israel targets iran even by itself that. america will be held accountable for this that. israel's november battle with gaza was seen as a test for a possible confrontation with the law on israeli airstrikes rained on gaza in exchange came a barrage of long range mortars and rockets most were held by israel's anti-missile shield the puncher for a rocket threat from gaza the war may have showcased newly acquired weapons by palestinian militant factions but hezbollah's arsenal is thought to be of higher
quality and quantity and experts say that it could launch four times as many markets per day as hamas the details of hezbollah's stockpile are secret but the group's willingness to use it is not. israel was shaken by a few fragile five missiles which could be counted on the fingers of one's hand how would it be able to withstand the thousands of missiles that will land on television and else way if it attacks the fellow. who was israel and hezbollah came face to face was in two thousand and six since then. hizbullah has now it collated around forty five thousand missiles off various ranges. the it's run of all part of. the range goes beyond three hundred but what's three hundred fifty kilometers which according to them at least they can reach the whole of. the south of the country this museum in the south of lebanon is designed to display has been cleaned military prowess captured israeli tanks and
weapons are meant to be a reminder of the danger has blocked and. this is the only has tunnel now open to visitors but a network of secret passageways just like this one stretches across lebanon they're used to move fighters and weapons across the country ensuring that has been lost and ready to strike at a moment's notice lucy catherine of r t southern lebanon. position cries fraud after a referendum on egypt's draft constitution early results suggest they have islam as charter has been approved but many claim that could only be possible with massive voter a game. plan but the question is it's love the guns as the chorus for tougher weapons control gets louder in the wake of the connecticut school massacre. that's later but now for many at this time of year it seems is the size of your wallet that dictates how much festive fun you'll enjoy

sixty four percent say yes. thirty six percent have said no this comes after mass dissent in the streets across the country with the cost three weeks against this constitution opposition forces say force the presidential dictatorship and was drafted by an islamist dominated assembly of the twenty seven governors that went to vote in the last week only three voted against the constitution. this in the last round is largely due to the fact that in the last seventeen governments they went to vote a large amount of them are rural governorates large muslim brotherhood supports places the opposition forces for their part to say that the reason it is a yes is because of electoral violations they say they've seen a number of instances of poor possible vote rigging including missing judges unsupervised polling stations missing ballot papers stuffed ballot boxes and also campaigning by the mr brotherhood groups also ultra ultra conservative salafist
groups with in the polling stations telling people to vote yes the biggest news of the day however is the resignation of the vice president mohamed mickey this is largely seen to be perhaps because in the draft constitution as it currently stands there is no post for the vice president this comes in the background of deepening violence across the country on friday we saw clashes between rival protest groups limits rallies in egypt second city xandra in support of the constitution there was rock throwing and also burning of cars the police had to intervene with tear gas that comes just one week after similar clashes and xandra and of course three weeks after very bloody scenes here in the capital cairo we saw ten people die in my book . racist groups and four outside the president were punished with a deepening political crisis and one decides backing down now the constitution is
likely to be put in place we can only expect dissent on the streets and possible violence across the country egypt's opposition has been outraged with pretty minor results and made how winery from the outer story possibility there's no way the constitution could have been passed without marking. this constitution and this around is a disgrace to a nation that far hard for its freedom and for its rights it's a document that strips result of all the rights that we have and try to constitute a dictatorship and it has been taught by a referendum that was a massive massive rigging for the ballot boxes massive rigging for the voice of the people physically see tens and hundreds of schools tens and hundreds of schools where the ballot boxes and the referendum process was taking place at a convenience i when the voices were very all the floor saw that the people were
voting no the power was cut off the most about the night of the. judges and employees and that's called shuts down the school over. the front of the voters and the state with the ballot boxes not overseas for hours and hours we are not recognise any results unless we see a proper investigation and a proper digging through these evidence that we've put and we receive a proper answer from the high committee of the election. the national rifle association in the u.s. has once again stressed it won't by any sort of gun control legislature this comes amid a storm of calls to rein in the accessibility of weapons in america in the wake of the massacre at this sandy hook elementary school in connecticut where twenty children six adults died. has known the future of the second amendment. a week after the tragedy at the elementary school in newtown president obama made the same pledge as when he became president four years ago to try and get assault
weapons off the streets of the u.s. it's a pledge he has failed to deliver on this is not the first issue the first incident already gone by. your four years. were you there but the administration indicates this time it's different this time they're serious will take commitment and compromise and most of all it will take coach shooting. it's a school and it's an important part of our hearing the debate taking place at the moment suggests a national consensus on the issue is far down the line and the dialogue between those who support and those who oppose such a ben comes down to this with guns comes safety if the guns are in the hands of the good guys that do not believe will be stupid the praful special interest group in washington the national rifle association has successfully fought any form of gun control legislation for years and the solution they offer to the epidemic of gun violence that has plagued the us is more guns. the only
thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. constitutional lawyer roger pilon thanks along the same lines and suggests arming teachers to prevent massacres like the one in newtown connecticut you're always going to have people who are going to be doing these kinds of evil deeds what you need to do is protect yourself against them or weapons in schools and you go to a movie theater you have to carry a gun because there will be there maybe someone with a semiautomatic you know wiping out the entire theater as we have seen is that what you're suggesting. where do you put it provocative like that what i'm suggesting people movie theater yes because the police cannot be everywhere there are almost three hundred million privately owned firearms in the u.s.
around ten thousand americans die in gun violence every year the gun murder rate in the u.s. is almost twenty times higher than in the next twenty two richest and most populous nations combined. we have three hundred million plus guns in america but also a population of three hundred million people so that's one gun per person and if more guns were actually the solution to deterring shootings of many times it would have this problem in the first place the gun adam lanza used to kill twenty young children and six adults of the sandy hook elementary school was an a r fifteen semiautomatic rifle it's a military style rifle that can shoot hundreds of rounds at a rapid speed it belongs to adams mother who he also murdered nancy lanza a teacher at the same elementary school owned six guns numerous types of assault weapons are readily available for purchase in the u.s. at gun stores at gun shows and online after the newtown tragedy many americans are
calling for change again. they couldn't hear. you could create previews meaningful attempts to change a wall and that wall is the second amendment of the constitution the right of the people to bear arms skeptics say the most brazen can do is required background checks at gun shows but again adam lanza's mother a teacher at an elementary school would have probably passed any of those checks on her military style rifle would have ended up in the hands of her son anyway that constitutional lawyer i spoke to seemed very certain that nothing major is going to change when it comes to goal laws in america does that mean more massacres like the tragedy in newtown in washington i'm going to shut down. has been proved by truly that the capone who volcano on the border with all cierra argentina i should say could be about to erupt scientists are warning people to stay outside
