allowing the arms embargo to syria to expire as of friday now this opens the doors paves the way for different countries to get involved in the syrian conflict and arming the rebels now this is controversial because in the international community to many it seems like this is basically russia picking sides arming the assad regime but this is not what russia believes in fact russia has always maintained that they are not picking sides in the conflict but they believe the way to end the conflict is through diplomacy but these are through existing contracts this is nothing new this is something that was agreed on before the conflict began and that they're simply fulfilling old contracts that they're obliged to do so but they have said that this is a stabilizing factor in the syrian conflict because it prevents her from other countries and other nations from getting involved in the syrian conflict now russia has been involved in diplomatic talks to try and find

a solution to the syrian crisis this week and john kerry the u.s. secretary of state meeting moscow has said that this they are disappointed in the decision to allow this arms embargo to expire because they see it as a. basically two faced diplomacy and it undermines efforts for diplomacy saying that allowing the arms embargo to expire is a double standard which directly damages the prospect of an international peace conference on the topic of syria so russia's reaction right now seen as controversial. the international community but it looks like they're going to go ahead and to deliver the s. three hundred missile defense system to syria all right sean thanks very much indeed for bringing us the very latest on russia's ria russia's reaction to the e.u. syria arms embargo lifted thomas there you can france have now opened the door for arms to flow into the hands of the syrian rebels however are some states
6:04 am
opposed to move saying it would only fuel the conflict this as russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov and u.s. secretary of state john kerry met in paris to organize syrian peace talks are designed to go have the details. to hey go over it he said that it's the only way that the u.k. sees the lifting of the arms embargo is the only way to end the crisis which has been ripping syria apart for more than two years that this point having said that we have to remember that even the most of the e.u. countries there's a strong disagreement on whether or not it is actually a good idea to lift the arms embargo of countries like sweden netherlands and the czech republic belief that allowing weapons shipments to syria to the syrian rebels will only intensify the bloodshed in the country of course russia has been opposed to this idea all along is truly concerned about where exactly those arms are going to end up then are they actually going to be in the arms of the so-called moderate opposition or will those weapons end up in the hands of some of the rebel groups
6:05 am
who are being supported by the terrorists who are known to operate in syria ironically well while the e.u. foreign ministers were meeting in brussels the russian foreign minister as well as the u.s. secretary of state were meeting here in paris and their efforts were directed at a peaceful resolution of the conflict also mosco in washington directing most of their efforts to bring together all sides of the syrian conflict to the table it was the first time that the u.s. secretary of state has repeated a phrase that has been used by russia all along and that is that it's up to the syrians themselves to solve the syrian crisis they have does seem like john kerry and sergey lavrov have agreed that they will exert pressure on different sides of the conflict that is moscow will work with the syrian government whereas the u.s. will try and make sure that the syrian opposition also attends the geneva peace conference which is due to take place sometime next month mosco also wants to see
6:06 am
so-called third parties participating in the peace talks and by the third parties they're talking about countries like qatar and iran who are not directly involved in any sort of diplomatic resolution of the crossing but are strongly expressing their sides in and. this syrian crisis of course even though the peace conference efforts are continuing we have to understand that. lifting up the ban on arms embargo to syria is opening and inspiring you say isn't the syrian conflict it could be spelling out a potential disaster which will only intensify further bloodshed in syria. and as we just heard there are concerns being voiced across europe over the lifting of the ban well they say the arms could easily reach extremist groups fighting in the ranks of the opposition forces allegations of torture and human rights abuses at the hands of the rebels the situation could now deteriorate even further
6:07 am
arms supply could hamper any peace initiative and there are also fears that more weapons will only fuel the conflict in syria but despite the lifting of the ban anti-war activists richard becker says the arms embargo never stopped western supporters of the opposition. the arms embargo is a bit of fiction anyway they arms are pouring into the opposition in syria they are for coming from qatar and saudi arabia there are undoubtedly be organized by the united states and the other nato powers where they really mean is that they want to send heavier weapons and because the opposition has suffered. serious side effects recently and so we see it as an all out push as dr post peace conference approaches out of both a civil level and a military level to try to strengthen the opposition which is dependent upon the support it is receiving from outside otherwise it does not have any hope for

even arrested in kenya back in two thousand and ten for trying to travel to somalia in order to train as a terrorist and at the same time the home secretary to reason may says that police needs to be given the tools they need in order to fight terrorism but considering that british intelligence had all that information about the willage suspects already many here are questioning why the home office didn't just use the tools they were he had. seen london. reports say one of the suspects in the brutal machete killing was considered a low risk by my five spy numerous warning signs dating back as far as two thousand and three of the time the alleged attacker was a member of an extremist islamic group that was being monitored by security services and later bound investigative journalist more power money to monitor the population is not the solution. how did these guys who were right at the very top of the terror watch list their x l maturing people how on earth did they not get

6:20 am
soul to do with the current crisis is the fact that. the industry in europe is receding but it is a long term trend in terms of losing market shares in many countries so just to confirm that the almost twenty seven million i thought if i'm not mistaken unemployed in europe it's still hard to find at least five hundred thousand engineers that they're saying now and i think the skill mismatch as we can call it is a concern but it's only a very part of the problems in southern europe you also have the the cost and price competitiveness of countries you have the question of the mix of what you produce what you can export but certainly yes. skilled mismatches and so rightly pointed out thank you very much for that well if you just look at the industrial production numbers are right now in the e.u. with still more than that via ten percent below its pre-crisis high in two thousand and eight but again europe's competitiveness comes to the forefront even more as
