to the place that some. of our. hopes for a breakthrough of iran's nuclear program fade in geneva says talks have hit a snag and accuses of blackmail breaking news. above the twenty fourteen olympic torch relay reaches out a space symbol of the games was taken for a space walk for the first time in human history. a crowded sky with drones over america they could pose a risk to the already huge amounts of traffic. flowing from a studio to here most cameras just ten ten pm this is. iranian lawmakers have
accused france of blackmail during talks on terrans nuclear program negotiations are at a crucial stage between iran and six world powers after a decade long deadlock had been hope of a deal but no negotiations appear to have hit a stumbling block. is following the negotiations in geneva. from the very beginning this skepticism really has been coming from france in the beginning they just. concerns had to be taken into consideration if any agreement is indeed reach we know israel has been very uncomfortable with this with netanyahu the premier of these rail warning that this is a bad deal however right now francis suggested that they are all there are conditions that must be met by iran one of its main concerns for instance is via a process in establishing iran's raney and which meant another demand for france and it's been suggested by the foreign minister is the halting of the iraq you know heavy water reactor death something iran does not want to do now aside from that
there are also words that were spoken by the foreign minister that might have insulted also the rain and because he's a lawyer five years had said that france didn't want to be part of a cotton game and that the final draft of final draft texas too favorable to iran now the lawmakers of iran have said that sounds really has been hindering these talks that have indeed been calling it blackmail it hasn't gone unnoticed here in these talks that france has been really taking quite a hard line from the very beginning is some of server servers saying that even a hard line then be a u.s. or the u.k. one western diplomat had told the associated press that in fact you conditions that france is demanding or harsher than those demanded by the u.s. and other partners did hear words for example from v a british foreign minister william hague saying that they should seize the moment in order to reach a deal that it wouldn't the world for a long time those are quite quite positive words that we heard the u.s. talking about narrowing gaps when it came to issues well as it stands right now the talks continue and there are suggestions from the reigning delegation that there
could be a resumption of the talks in about two weeks time and roman holiday a journalist and political analyst based in strasburg says france's position on the deal is dictated by the interests of all the players. but they seemed to take an extreme position all the time and there are a number of reasons for this the first is that they are playing good cop bad cop with the americans obama is suddenly being much more reasonable in his attitude with the iranians the french are out there on the flank saying oh you must agree too easily israel must be protected and so on and in a sense that if you like. playing the game with the americans so that they could charge more reasonable the french are no other reasonable there is another factor which is that everybody knows the enormous pressure of the israel lobby in america it's not quite so well known that it's pretty pretty considerable in france as well
. we learned and spoke to a bus lanny he's from iran's falls news agency who said france is sabotaging a deal with iran to score points in the region the news that we get from the diplomats who were sent diplomats is being said that the france is opposing the it is being going to happen in iran and the p five plus one there are some analysis speculations on that why the france is opposing this one is that france has good relations with israel france help israel to complete building the plant of their man are on the other hand france is having good relations with the arab countries in the region so in this case countries and is the are opposing any deal with iran. france can enjoy difference between israel and arab countries with the u.s.
to strengthen entire ties with those countries. now let's take a more detailed look at the deal negotiators have been trying to put together first according to some sources the six world powers want to run to halt all activities to enrich uranium at twenty percent they could then permit enrichment at a level below weapons grade in addition iran would be obliged to limit the number of centrifuges it uses the demands also reportedly include more intrusive monitoring of terrans atomic facilities and in return world powers would unfreeze some of ron's assets in foreign banks plus the west would reportedly consider easing sanctions which have crippled the country's economy what of course we'll keep you updated on the progress of these nuclear talks currently being held in geneva throughout the rest of the day on air and online and web site r.t. dot com. a giant step for the twenty fourteen winter olympics the olympic torch has just been taken in the space walk for the first time in history as part of the
longest ever torch relay on his linsey france witness the unique moment of mission control. well it's a very exciting thing to watch live here because what we're actually getting to see right now is down on the floor the engineers are essentially walking the cosmonauts through the steps of making it all the way around the international space station with the torch in hand and also it's important to note here if the viewers out there have noticed the torch is modified obviously it's been tethered very securely to the cosmonauts because no one wants to lose that thing into outer space i'd like to know who they may have voted to go after that thing if it actually gets loose so it's again. it's his fourth spacewalk and sergey it's his first and of course he gets to be part of this which is amazing now of course the torch has been in space before once for the one thousand nine hundred six olympics once for the two thousand and six but this time in space it's actually going on a space walk it's not just inside of
a shuttle or inside of the eye is this so it was a big moment here when we actually saw the torch come out of the hatch attached to the cars minot's and make its appearance out in space the symbol of unity and sportsmanship being seen all over the world in fact. when i'm not live i'm taking pictures with my camera phone as is everybody just because it's so amazing to actually be part of this and get to see on these huge screens right here at star city not only do we see only huge screens but we can hear the engineers talking to the cosmonauts and hear their responses come to the microphones back to these guys who are actually seeing this all happen right right in front of our eyes and it's just it's like nothing i've ever experienced just it's an amazing thing and. i just wish that more people could be part of it now the torch has a couple more days left on the i assess before it heads back down to earth with a three person crew on a soyuz spacecraft again and so it's going to rejoin this historic relay to
saatchi for that kick off. in february at the olympics so we will be bringing you all the live developments of the olympic torch right here on r.t. . to the cosmonauts who carried the symbol of the olympics into open space and you can catch that video on our website dot com and of course we'll continue to follow the torch when it comes back to earth and continues its way across the world's largest country watch all the highlights live on r.t. . deliberate design it's a big journey to structure. one hundred twenty three days. through two hundred two cities of russia. really fourteen thousand people or sixty thousand killings. in a record setting trip by land air sea another space.
olympic torch relay. on the marquee. thousands of drones will soon be swarming across u.s. airspace they're expected to be used for civil purposes such as far fighting and whether tracking but their presence is still causing concern now let's take a look at the states from above now these yellow spots are planes in american air space as you can see the skies are already very crowded the total movement every day is around ninety thousand and when on manned aircraft join the traffic of course this number is going to rise so that compromise the safety of air traffic on he's going to check on that for the answer. according to the u.s. federal aviation administration by twenty twenty there will be up to thirty thousand drones flying in the u.s. airspace not just by law enforcement and other government agencies but also by private firms for all kinds of purposes so the f.a.a. game itself two years to come up with ideas on how to regulate that brave new world
where everybody can fly their throw their designated six test sites across the country to see how it goes aside from very serious i would see concerns there's a danger of meet air collisions even now as the government has not yet allowed the commercial use of drones the f.a.a. is getting a rising number of safety complaints from pilots in march of this year and only tallia airliner made national news headlines when the pilot reported spotting a drone as he was trying to land at new york's j.f.k. airport back then the f.a.a. and the f.b.i. have opened investigations into finding the drone the plane was flying over a densely populated area when he brushed shoulders with a drone to the horror of the pilots of course or in a separate incident in the indianapolis five hundred body control like a few hundred feet below him in the opposite direction at a high speed. just to give you an idea of how concerned pilots are one pilot said we're concerned about birds we're concerned about other airplanes and now we're
throwing in something totally uncontrolled when they suck one of those drones into the engine of an airplane he said then it will get everybody's attention and one of the challenges is that drones occasionally lose connection with the operator on the ground that's a well reported problem but apart from accidental collisions there is another challenge drones can be hijacked by someone with very bad intentions so the brave new world of drones can also turn out to be a very dangerous one in washington i'm going to check on our. woman's loss is another's gain and china sees opportunity in the arab spring european economic charge into the mid. north africa a region left for the taking by crisis and violence that's coming up after a break. look
at the world. series its technology innovation called the least developed minutes from around russia we've gone to the future covered. plenty of it was terrible a family's very hard to take a look once again a little long here is a place that never had sex with that earthquake there's no place. to call it one. of those. little place it.
looks. a little. so are the thieves who stole the more than a million dollars in digital money from an online bitcoin storage service hackers breach the host by manipulating flaws in the system which will thin to kate's users they left no trace after almost completely emptying the virtual vault if this had happened in a standard bank then you would get compensation of course but because bitcoin is digital cash with no regulation victims have no where to go that's the usual police methods of collecting evidence and questioning witnesses is useless against online methods that can cover tracks where despite all of that william believes that bitcoin is still a county investment what we see today in the world was a lie or crisis in greece and the failure in cyprus is regulation doesn't work.
you have regulatory can't assure you just have system failure and the thing that makes a big point exciting or leave a bit point is the fact that it's an emergent system if it does require regulation just by it really wasn't as good as we thought it was. the dutch king has been pelted with rotten tomatoes during a visit to moscow by two members of the national bolshevik party which is banned in russia incident comes at a time when diplomatic relations between the two nations a delicate at best auntie's pool scott explains well a further unsavory incident putting go further pressure on already strained relations between the two countries now the dutch king and his wife were attending a music concerts in moscow when two men through what appeared to be tomatoes at them they were on homs and to carry on with their official engagements now the two men who were arrested were members of the national bolshevik party which is

china is looking to take advantage of america's mistakes in the middle east but asia is using the term all caused by wars to do some serious business and even some of the worst hit countries like egypt are turning into a real opportunity as bell truly explains. this is north cairo where egypt's burgeoning chinatown has now planted its roots restaurant owner. says the chinese community here is thriving despite the political turmoil. most chinese come here for study were typically muslim chinese minorities i opened my restaurant recently i know the political situation here is difficult but it doesn't affect chinese businesses it's a good place to live as us egypt relations soured after american officials with help keep the military and economic assistance in october egypt has hinted at cozying up to other super powers like china and the list say to china it's more
about its political expansion gaining clout with one of the region's main players rather than finance we have sixty three agreements. i mean different kinds of cultural political egypt is central country in the arab region and it is very useful to have good relations developing relations with us because we have a say in the region marching turn of the chinese embassy in cairo says although two thousand and thirteen was a turbulent year for egypt the country's exports to china increased by a staggering one hundred thirteen percent we are very happy to see this figure we tried to make more efforts. to reach the. one billion very small egypt's economy which had heavily relied on its terrorism market has taken a pounding after two and
a half years of revolution and regime change and with cairo and washington at loggerheads it looks like egypt might keep looking eastwards. boccieri r.t. kind. and my colleague kevin and spoke about china's results hunger with author and investor jim rogers he told us beijing's playing finder's keepers across the whole world china is trying to secure natural resources all over the world africa south america central asia germany soft said the beijing success is build on washington's failures what do you think. well certainly if you look around the world it will certainly see there's a lot of truth to that the chinese have more or less. they're all over africa they're buying plantations and everything else america's got very low presence in africa now that is making inroads in the middle east and it's going to get a lot of oil from iran going forward it looks as though china may even start
getting oil from iraq you know america says that they were a liberated iraq in the end and maybe the chinese will get the oil. for a long time unrest in the middle east helped push up international oil and gas prices and today's cars report looks at how it's the consumers who ultimately suffer many demonstrators staged a bonfire by burning of energy bills to voice their opposition to rising cost of fuel burning their energy bill is like burning your draft card you know during the vietnam war of a bird there are their draft cards burning their energy bill is similar in that you don't want to join up forces with the corrupt big six energy companies in the u.k. that are their financial terrorism so if you don't want to support financial terrorism of the big six energy companies here in the u.k. you would burn your energy bill i suggest get a thousand people on the millennium bridge here in london to get together and burn their energy bill in unison.

remember way back when we first talked about the first downloadable guns that could be printed out on a three d. printer at home while technology moves pretty quickly because british police have already busted in legal armory pretty out firearm parts and special three d. printers this technology may make gun control literally impossible in the same way that banning and burning books has become futile and the past they used to be able to just burn books or forbid them from being printed but in the age of the internet all you need is a scanner and an internet connection and the information that's found in a book cannot be destroyed because it is out there on the magical ether of the air at so basically the near future any person with even half a brain and some patients could start making guns in their basement which means that gun control laws will basically become pointless because they'll never be able to catch all the people doing it nor will be able to take the guns not even obama or the hardest of hardcore liberals this technology could be the best thing to happen to the second amendment ever but i shust my opinion.
did you know the price is the only industry specifically mentioned in the constitution and. that's because a free and open process is critical to our democracy albus. rule. in fact the single biggest threat facing our nation today is the corporate takeover of our government and across several we've been hijacked lying handful of transnational corporations that will profit by destroying what our founding fathers once will just my job market and on this show we reveal the big picture of what's actually going on in the world we go beyond identifying the problem trucks rational debate and a real discussion of critical issues facing america by bill ready to join the movement then welcome to the big picture.
you got a lot of sneering and negative press for your engagements here in russia especially for your public appearances with food and even though they weren't explicitly politically or just supporting sports one of the things that certain people regime has become very adept at is controlling the media for example right here c.n.n. do i think c.n.n. is you know completely telling it like it is no i think they have an agenda i think through genda is is bought and paid for. league. because of. the but. because of the. outing folks welcome to breaking the set i'm out of time you know i was going to
fork over half a million dollars to obama in the last election just for the hell of it. and then i didn't because i'm not bill maher but now i'm full of regrets because you see if i did donate a large sum of money to the drone king i could have been in the past that are apparently obama's thank this campaign finance or by awarding them with highly coveted embassador ships we expect those chosen for these important positions are qualified and have some expertise in international relations or at the very least while traveled and flew into the language about respective state but in the us it looks like it's become a position free for all for the president's big spending friends see a woman named coleen bradley bell was just appointed be embassador for hungry her qualifications for the job include being the producer for a soap opera company called belle philip television her husband bradley is the head writer for the critically acclaimed soap opera the bold and the beautiful the bells
hosted obama at their mansion last year for giant fundraising event with coleen personally raising more than two point one million dollars for the president according to the new york times as you can see she's clearly appropriate for the job after all the prime minister's twin brother sleeps with his wife and has an illegitimate son who turns out to be a transsexual serial killer who better to solve the snafu than a soap opera producer but of course it's just the latest in a string of absurd appointments on their obama previous underqualified choices including bastard germany john emerson who's the former president the capital group private client services to spain james cost as a former h.b.o. executive james brewster ambassador of the medical republic as well as a real estate kingpin and senior managing partner for a consulting firm and who could forget caroline kennedy of the kennedy family as the ambassador to japan despite the fact that she doesn't speak a lick of japanese euphoric.
