this is r.t. coming to you live from moscow i'm marina joshie welcome to the program now a high level conference in a worldwide nuclear disarmament and that's the proposal from iran's new president at the un general assembly has on rouhani also took the chance to call israel to declare its alleged weapons of mass destruction was across lives over spawn remember for more on this well how do you know what's this and unexpected proposal from an iranian president and how did it go down. an unexpected a proposal and an unexpected appearance from what we're being told it wasn't clear whether iranian president hassan rouhani would actually be speaking at the un high level meeting on disarmament but he did and he called on israel to join the nuclear nonproliferation treaty now that treaty requires all countries who have nuclear programs or nuclear weapons to acknowledge them in this way the international community can monitor each country's
a way of using its nuclear program or its stockpile of nuclear weapons now while many countries most countries believe that israel does have nuclear weapons does possess them israel has never acknowledged it nor has it signed to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty now the iranian leader said that israel is the only non party. in the middle east and encouraged israel to join the pact to ensure that the region remains a nuclear weapons free zone he said no nation should possess nuclear weapons and there are no right hands for these wrong weapons the iranian leader went on to say that any use of nuclear weapons is a violation of the un charter and a crime against humanity he said there are only guarantee is total elimination now rouhani was speaking about nuclear weapons he said that this is he also called i'm sorry he also called for a conference a high level conference to be taking place on nuclear disarmament within. every
five years i think that type of conference already does take place. is spearheaded by the united nations but what we're seeing here is this new iran iranian leader that has come to new york to engage with the international community really seizing every opportunity he can to try to show that iran is being transparent is trying to be a key player and apparent willingness to resolve international concerns about its own nuclear program will be put to the test in the coming hours foreign ministers from the five permanent members. of the united nations security council and germany will meet with iran's top diplomat divides the reef on the sidelines of the un general assembly now the meeting is aimed at paving the way for the first round of substantial negotiations on the nuclear issue surrounding iran it will also mark the the highest level direct contact between the united states and iran in six years as secretary of state john kerry comes face to face with iran's new newly
appointed of foreign minister now this will be the first meeting that we've seen in quite a while the presidents of the united states and iran have not met or or or sat down face to face since the iranian. seventy nine their worst boards there was some speculation this week that possibly u.s. president barack obama would be meeting with his iranian counterpart that so far hasn't worked out but iranian president hassan rouhani has said that he hopes that there is a nuclear deal reached with the p five plus one in a matter of months ideally for him it would be three months in an interview with the washington post president rouhani reiterated that iran's supreme leader ali khamenei fully empowered him to finalize the nuclear talks it appears that the iranian officials they do want to do this as quick as possible the iranian leader said that it is iran is ready to offer unprecedented transparency of its nuclear facilities and may allow the international atomic energy agency to possibly assess
iran's possible military dimensions to prove that the nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes is not aimed at building a mom but of course there is a reason that iran is trying to engage the international community it is suffering now under crippling sanctions that have been piled on the country year after year from the international community because the international community was not happy with the way iran was dealing with its nuclear program said the country wasn't being transparent enough so at this point iran is trying to engage the u.s. and its western counterparts in hopes that these international sanctions that the iranian citizens have been suffering under for so many years are eventually lifted will have to wait and see what happens throughout today absolutely no will certainly be interesting to see what other developments will come out of this proposal by president rouhani for now thank you very much for bringing us this update from new york will stay with r.t. for very latest from the u.n. general assembly in new york city. now to other
stories a court in russia's poor to see the war man's cows remanded participants in last week's art to greenpeace protest the artist stay in jail until the end of the scale you know while platform against drilling in russia's waters well let's get the details from our. so if we know a bring us up to date what's happening in this case what is the very latest and how are the russian authorities explaining their moves well so far it seems like those of the activists who had been apprehended on board to their eyes breaker in the arctic sunrise seems like a very getting about most most of them are getting the two month for luminary confinement however the spokesman for the russia for the russian prosecutor general's office has said that that doesn't mean they will actually have to stay. the entire two months in jail all of it depends on the piece of the investigation investigators have also said that the main reason for such a for such
a sentence is a because the thirty activists are stemming from seventeen countries and the russian authorities want them to stay in the country while the investigation is ongoing now why did the activists from the green peace vessel and arrested in the first place that is because last week they in the protest against oil drilling or any sort of drilling in the arctic they have scaled and of oil rig a russian oil rig in the northern sea. the russian authorities are saying that they have done so ignoring numerous warnings from. various several russian officials particularly not to enter the northern sea route and not to scale that was right by the activists from. the from greenpeace have done so anyways and hence at the had to be operate headed with the russian border patrol who actually have extracted them first from the oil rig and then have arrested them a rather have addicted them from their vessel. while greenpeace is calling the
accords actions illegal but what were they expecting only it seems like the greenpeace activists were expecting of course a lot of publicity and they have they seem to have gotten just did that at the same time their action took place on the eve of the arctic conference which took place in russia just a a. very recently and did during that arctic conference which was dedicated to the problem of but initial development in the arctic as well as a way to keep the environment safe one of the participants of the conference was russian president wasn't it was him who has said that it is clear that greenpeace activists have indeed broken international law but they are facing charges of piracy and russian president said that it is impossible to call them pirates so a lot of people are stealing that as a good sign that perhaps there is that users will not be as harsh as they could be . isn't so the sentence for piracy in russia does bear a rather have to be
a jail sentence for entering a thanks very much for bringing us this updater english reporting there. now a menace anti-fascists rally has turned violent in athens after furious protests are stride a storm to have quarters of the far right golden dawn party the anger was sparked by the murder of a left wing rapper last week why a sympathizer of the neo nazi party well reports say there has been at least three hundred similar fascist attacks since twenty seven and the number is rising greek police are now requesting permission to check the phone records of two senior golden dawn members following months of speculation with them parliament on whether the party should be banned parties lucy confident has been following the tension. fury on the streets of athens clashes erupted following
a protest against the murder of pablo's physis the anti-fascist rapper was stabbed to death last week by an alleged supporter of the far right golden dawn party allegations the group firmly denies. saying our job is to look p. as a young man who is known to be not have been the first to die at the hands of wreaking on nazi groups but he was the first non migrant golden dawn has also been said to be targeting anarchists and communists renewing political tensions between the extreme left right and the greek government they have acquired the fear of big i don't phrases they have collaborated with the nazis maybe. they have blood on their hands this is why we say go with this government with the golden dome the group is trying to keep a low profile in the wake of the killing and wouldn't speak to us on camera this man however was keen to talk george says he's one of the group's oldest members and he blames journalists for giving golden dawn
a bad rep is the only party that helps bench inners poor people and desperate greeks who are suffering in the crisis we're not extremists and we aren't against anyone yet georges also wanted to make sure i noticed people in the neighborhood he claimed this man was an egyptian immigrant who lived on handouts at the expense of greeks like himself as for the nazi symbolism the fascist salutes that the group has been known for all a misunderstanding he says. once wrong with this there's nothing wrong with a salute just a way of saying hello so i did myself it's a greeting that still terrifies this greek resident he believes that golden dawn was to blame for his recent assault but he also points to another factor behind the growing divisions and the violence economy a crisis i didn't used to be afraid but greece has changed everyone is suffering financially and some are looking to blame others immigrants and. the target despite the public shows of anger against it golden dawn it is greece's third largest party
and at least until now its fastest growing political force it gained ground against a backdrop of unrest linked to the economic crisis and a country burdened by debt soaring unemployment and deep cuts to social spending oh it's the vein that it's when your life changes totally like ours has in the past few years and when you lose your job and can't provide for your family you grab whatever helping hand you can get and golden dawn has helped is still fight to the end. spiros a shop owner who's had to shut down one of his stores because of the recession blames the influx of immigrants for straining scarce resources and he says golden dawn keeps order in his neighborhood when the government fails. we don't want to use violence but when golden dawn kicks out immigrants who are squatting illegally . doing and forces peace and order of course to support them as a government does nothing. the financial crisis has done more than simply cripple greece's economy it's changing society too when asked to describe how local say
that the writing is on the wall in this neighborhood it literally is in the red it says out what foreigners signed golden dawn in the black fashion arcus logo it's evidence of a growing ideological divide and with the greek economy still in trouble that divide is unlikely to heal anytime soon lucie county r.t. athens. well it's not going to be easy for the government to crack down on the neo nazis as we've been hearing from the author of the greek crisis in the media. the golden dawn is very well organized and that this whole issue of trying to paraphrase young people to join their cause and this is very dangerous for the greek society the situation there right now in greece is dangerous there is much tension in the streets of athens and there are other see this of the greece there are people who are demonstrating against the citizen and there is the government
itself which is trying to mitigate the impact of the golden dawn according to the greek constitution is very difficult to get this barkey out of the law so that mainly the objective of the government is so that the greek public opinion that some members of the golden dawn have already he was screaming out like they were this in order to sell them out that it's not the best solution for that for for them to support this party well keep across what's happening in greece a by getting the latest news and analysis at r.t. dot com that's our website. summer's barely over but southern russia is already excited about the winter with sochi sort of snow for the olympics had our team reports from the bright white of the slopes.

how. to protect the freelance the. van we will be the man mr and there's an ox of your mission in syria and he went there to make english the issue with these forces with groups and all of that . at the very next think we would speak to. the. sponsors well you know in two thousand and twelve united states recognize the as and see as a legitimate representative of the syrian people but now observers are saying that they are losing control and influence in authority in fact on the ground so why do you still expect unconditional backing from western powers. actually the financial community seems to be one they don't want to do something.
they just. think about the reason to. be big and one of these they say that. we. like this. they are not buying this is just. an excuse. to do through the sayings of any action to stop the war when they would be there and they would. want to get these loans and they would go through some action and they wouldn't do these actions they would. they would do it or not they almost do it that alone. the size they just let us know that they were something. well right now the investigators are in syria for another fact finding mission there and opposition groups have been as you probably know queues of using chemical weapons so how will your coalition react to these allegations are proven

national council member. ukraine eyeing a joint deal with american energy giants in attempts to obtain cheaper gas and ease its dependence on russia by the supposed benefits from the proposal are in leaving some in doubt as i search asking our reports. so then no celestial see ok that's some way to introduce oneself not only did the new u.s. ambassador to ukraine congratulate ukrainians on their independence day in their language but he also made his embassy employees sing a traditional song. to bring more sweet music to ukrainian ears mr piatt said the country's european integration will be his priority as will ensuring an easy passage for american oil and gas giants into its markets exxon mobil and chevron the two companies interested in cooperation with ukraine they will bring american technologies know
how and money into ukraine it will be good for the country and will help it become energy independent. mr piet certainly knew what strings to pool as the energy issue has been one of the most intensely debated in ukraine which has long been unhappy with the prices of the gas advice from russia ukraine has been fighting for its energy independence since the nine hundred ninety s. and when the first stock of the country using its shale gas reserves came up may breathe a sigh of relief but as the time passes by this optimism seems to be waning while ukraine's energy minister was visibly happy with the shale gas initiatives once it's operational we will strive to fully meet our domestic energy needs and even become an exporter some raised a sensible question would the country actually win by letting foreign companies handle their resources enormously administration of ukraine's western ivanna from course krege and said no to chevron's shale gas operations on their soil leaving
the company would simply rob them. under current conditions our region will not receive anything from these gas extraction this display of unease matters little though as energy experts expect gas corporations to lobby a law to let parliament issue such permissions instead of regional authorities and while ukraine's west is being defiant the east of the country has already given up recently key a finalist a ten billion dollar deal with shell for the exploration and extraction of shale gas a former press officer for ukraine state gas company enough the gas says the issue has been turned into a major political power play. it's still unclear how much gas is there and whether it'll be possible to extract it yet everyone makes such a big deal of it it's like looking ahead which hasn't been caught not even knowing if that had actually exists even the most optimistic forecast suggest that ukraine would not start extracting its shale gas until the year twenty twenty that's if
there is any gas at all but until then a question remains pretty much open with this lead to the country's much desired energy independence or simply do a change in who they're dependent on. alexi risky odyssey reporting from key of the ukraine well let's check in on such now which has taken shape for the twenty fourteen winter olympics still some work to go but it's now safe to say something special awaits the world's sports fans in just over four months are this a bomb would say reports from the black sea resort. i can tell you this that the spirit has definitely been turned on stodgy isn't ready to give us the body to the international olympic committee which has been gathered here for the final visit before that february the seventh to take off i just want to tell audience what chad has and have actually said in the end it would seem that this is just what we've said that this has been an outstanding record coming out of sochi medicine festival which is in such
a short period of time i mean the bible stuff i mean it's just something but it's certainly been quite a shock to her time considering the fact that many all but the modernization of the machine and many of the cluster of places that we seem to have just meeting been built has been for me and wonderful treat. or together you tried very very hard to use she did almost to the point where we said this is fantasy of course you can talk about this so she would go up to it touching her little bit on the elephant in the room that was supposed the controversial law banning l.g.b. t. propaganda to mine is that now on that to be on you'll see stated that because it does not violate any of the i.o.c. top to that that it's a good i hate and they do not want to meddle within the politics or the laws of a cohen host country particularly if they don't of violate any of the charges now
are ya and i did catch up with the head of the competence of russia dimitri said the shank of us about to be a little bit about the flare that i didn't witness when i was up there in the mountains and this is what i actually have to say we got in that take a listen nobody will be frozen to this its will be a mild temperature it's a balance between the warmer condition and the coastal parts of venice and also we hope that there will be a lot of smaller during the winter in the mountains some by the way in case so that any. so the show this no we prepare the snow from the previous season on the fly in this special reservoir so we're secure that anyway the games will be at the highest possible level it's ready said in good health food store chief it's a thumbs up from the i.o.c. and all that's awaiting us all the sports men and the women up but of course at the olympics the paladin picks for those who went to twenty four teams out here in sochi of course we've given you a taste of what are those winter games will look like adams even feel like who would have thought that once we get to one of the mounting classes here this is
what we would find a window one to lead to obviously mother nature telling us that the clock is ticking and she's ready for all of those that spectators as well as those sports men and women both how lympics as well as the olympics ready to get to take part in those games. and come here in our team would take a look at why guantanamo bay still remains open here is after president obama ordered it to be closed that's after the break.
