turn world's attention to the police that's something. we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid u.s. secretary of state john kerry. being to israel as it goes on the offensive against iran the high level talks on its nuclear program brought no conclusive results. as the united states and you begin hashing out a key trade deal critics say it'll blow back on consumers and corporations unprecedented power. plus. which have successfully returned to earth after a historic trip and now the longest torch relay in olympic history is set to continue will bring you details.
3:01 am
the world's top headlines live from moscow this is odd to you with me rover sushi i thank you for joining our program today the progress made in geneva over iran's nuclear program is in danger of being on raffles even before the sides meet again next week and no sooner had the current. be it without an agreement u.s. lawmakers then said they wanted to slap even more sanctions on tehran and that's on top of an israeli diplomatic onslaught aimed at killing what it called quote a very bad deal here on the program i discussed it with. israel has reacted furiously to the prospect of any kind of deal the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says it lifts the pressure of sanctions which have taken years to put into place and at the same time it leaves iran with its nuclear enrichment capabilities intact that's
3:02 am
a bad deal. it's dangerous. because it. has a nuclear threshold nation. we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid i think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe particularly of our allies like israel this recreate between the israeli and american leaders shows increased tensions between these two allies the u.s. secretary of state john kerry also saying that the u.s. will keep sanctions in place until such time that the talks have reached a deal at the same time the u.s. and all makers are calling for new sanctions to be slapped on the randomness of that happening on the one side while on the other side you have attempted some kind of diplomatic breakthrough the deal this time around it seems so close many diplomats hailing the progress that was being made what went wrong the geneva
3:03 am
meeting deal so he did seem what however happened was that france objected strenuously to any kind of proposed deal that was on the table the french foreign minister strace that he would not accept what he called a weak deal with iran now the biggest obstacle appears to be the future of iran's reactor at iraq and this could ultimately provide a nother route to making the nuclear weapons the facility is currently being built it is due to be operational next year alongside this there are talks that are being slated to be held in the next two weeks and that it is a bid to end this current standoff. right there now the failure to reach a temporary deal is actually largely being blamed on powers whose road blocks certainly took washington by surprise in the meantime iran's a supreme leader railed on twitter against the french moves he described as an imprudent and inept but political analyst cited mohammad marandi he says at the end
3:04 am
of the day the u.s. still has the upper hand in the talks. some believe that the french are in coordination with the united states and it's a sort of good cop bad cop combination some believe that the french are this the current french government has very close both israel and the saudi regime and that they have a great deal of influence but it's a very difficult to imagine under any circumstances the french really standing up to the united states at the end of the day if the united states is adamant that it deal should be struck i think that the french will fall in line and i coming up throughout the day on r.t. it's going to be crosstalk with labelling is debating whether the crippling western sanctions on iran can be justified or seeing as they've left the country's economy in a state of ruin. priscilla t. is in in for the in south after her on was not on was not transparent according to
3:05 am
the nonprofessional if you have you can pursue but you have to be transparent and. when you establish order for you you you put you build a place in order to enrich uranium so you know it's i think kind of command information but again i don't want to go into detail into the know but what i what i do agree with what i was saying is that if you look at how countries view the western assault on iran for the last few decades most countries in the world disagree with it very strong majority against it is the perception is is that the again the americans and it's a close allies hijack what we mean by the international community and you know what they could even be bombed to hell in the name of the international community which would be an absolute fraud george go ahead. here's exactly. the case of iran the i.a.e.a. has never found that iran had a nuclear weapons program that he was diverting any. towards nuclear weapons
3:06 am
program even the u.s. intelligence agencies have not found that iran is has a nuclear weapons program so therefore this this use us israeli policy against iran has absolutely real no basis at all on the law or on evidence. are now europe and the us are in negotiations which they hope will result in a much needed boost to their cash flows and they're sitting down to hammer out the transatlantic trade and investment partnership which would remove a number of regulations that currently create barriers to trade now the access file adoption of the agreement promises both parties massive gains yet the profits come at a price as critics aid. agreement or put health security and environmental regulations in danger but that risk is worth one hundred nineteen billion euros with which the
3:07 am
e user khana me as promised annually from the deal a journalist and author glyn moody he explains the kongs of the partnership it's based on the idea not just of getting rid of the barriers to trade of which there are very few between the u.s. and e.u. but of getting rid of what are called the non-tariff barriers and those really amount to regulations things like health regulations safety regulations environmental regulations and so the whole thing is predicated on actually deregulating the european and american systems so that's a very big assumption because people may not want to have their food let's say for their environment more polluted for the sake of more money but that's precisely what would happen is the father be fewer constraints and therefore it's true it will generate lots of money for the b. companies but effectively the public will pay in terms of reduced regulation reduced protection and that is never calculated in these trade agreements it's
3:08 am
always about the bottom line of the big companies and he predicts that a lot of corporations will abuse the right to take legal action against governments to push their agendas for it. is about putting the corporation above the nation it lets a company sue a country and they can do that when they claim that their expectation of future profits has been diminished by changes in legislation all by particular station already in place and i want to think will happen is that companies like monsanto will sue the e.u. for billions of dollars because they will say that refusing to allow genetically modified organisms to be sold here is actually a barrier to trade and therefore their profits have suffered and therefore under the tee to wriggle ations assuming they go through they will claim to have a right to sue the european union. well the talks are scheduled to continue through to friday you know the ongoing n.s.a. scandal could certainly tarnish the discussion of peter all of
3:09 am
a took up the story. the idea behind tough to the transatlantic free trade agreement is to generate billions of dollars of business between the united states and the european union well it all sounds great however the amount of snags that this deal is hits over the time since it's been put on the table suggests that not everybody is happy with everything that it would take now to talk a bit more about some of those stumbling blocks i'm joined by michael economic analyst thank you very much for talking to me now just over a shoulder over here just over your shoulder over there is the u.s. embassy now the john kerry the secretary of state says that the n.s.a. spying saga isn't going to be an issue when it comes to talking about trade but that saga has limited trust between the two countries how can you have trade when you don't have trust i mean. let's face it. the united states politicians are saying oh this is very bad. but there is
3:10 am
no real consequence out of it you know how does that relate to business in particular if you will say one of the big giant german companies would you be willing to sit down with one of your american counterparts do you trade knowing that perhaps they were listening in to all of your secret conversations of course the n.s.a. and all the spying is not only about political issues but also about economic facts german companies are aware that they buy it and thirty americans take the results of the spying for themselves but they cannot do anything against it there is a potential legislative minefield that comes from this and also the potential for the stripping of sovereign rights said lots of people have campaigned in the e.u. saying that too many rights go to determine by brussels what this could end up seeing is that trades could end up determining the laws of the country how will that go down in germany let's face it this treaty is nothing else then submitting
3:11 am
the e.u. walking force to the. of us corporate crissy they want to put to dictate their own rules to the whole world and also to the you won't have any advantage of dogs this is all a hoax it's all a lie that nobody on the streets once it we have all rights we have all their working fine why should we saw serve to the monsanto mafia they are profiting from this treating nothing else michael economic analyst thank you very much for talking to me there so the second round of talks on tough to underway but certainly still a long way to go to convince the people of europe that this is best for them. now back from orbit twenty fourteen olympic torch as a return to earth along with a crew from the international space station lindsey france has been following the historic journey. right here in mission control when the big red letters landed flashed on the screen a huge round of applause went up to see the torch back safely here on earth with

3:15 am
but it's good to be with us here on r t today a straight to the devastation in the far east with the rescue operation still underway in the philippines after the biggest typhoon to ever hit the region last parts of the country in just a state of ruin thousands of troops have been deployed to help relief workers who are currently struggling through mountains of debris local authorities are saying that more than ten thousand people may have died in this disaster the numbers are yet to be confirmed meanwhile the typhoon has already reached vietnam killing at least six and forcing hundreds of thousands to flee the low lying coastal areas high and expected to move on to southern china where a state of emergency has already been declared a meteorologist robert corell believes the region regrettably will see more super storms and more likely in the very near future. the intensity the energy
3:16 am
in the storms in the pacific have gone up by fifty percent over the last thirty years or so and this is largely due to the warmer ocean or marine atmosphere so we're going to see more of these very severe storms so-called three four five category storms now in some cases when the communications systems are very active we can give good warning to other people in other cases when those are not there or not as robust it's very difficult for everybody to know that it's such a severe storm is coming so preparation is going to be absolutely essential and the countries are clearly going to have to make the kind of decisions about how they're close or populated in order to minimize the impact or r.t. well the time to east in libya we go where separatists have gone a step further and challenging the author to use in tripoli by forming their own oil for breakaway militias control of lion's share of libya's crude now and.
3:17 am
tending to start exporting it for their own needs the central government has threatened to take action and less oil facilities are handed back inside ten days tripoli has so far been unable to regain control of the self-proclaimed autonomous region which does have its own shadow government in place. thousands of left wing protesters took to the streets in athens to no confidence vote against the country's current government the initiative was tabled by greece's main opposition party syriza but that move was defeated by a majority in parliament the debt stricken nation has been granted to multi-billion euro bailouts already but the speculation however that there could be more money to come or at least be needed in the future. the main western backed syrian opposition group has laid out new preconditions for attending peace talks the syrian national coalition wants to moscow's to establish humanitarian corridors to proceed to areas
3:18 am
and to release political prisoners the opposition is also stood for its demand that president assad. the syrian government has so far refused to accept such terms for the proposed international conference in geneva. remembrance day ceremonies have been held across the globe to all of the heroes on victims of the first world war which now ended ninety five years ago other conflicts are traditionally also remembered on this day clearing the catastrophic second world war but now russian and british veterans are among those recalling their cooperation to bring down the fascist war machine. takes up the story. earlier this year the russian government was finally allowed to say a special thank you to british arctic convoy veterans who had traveled to the save the union with supplies during the siege of leningrad the u.k. government gave its blessing for the veterans to receive russia's naval bravery
3:19 am
award called the medal it's the result of years of campaigning because of a legal snag that forbids the queen's subjects from receiving foreign decorations it is very significant because actually generally people in this country and allowed to receive medals from other countries that's not the norm i mean dates back into the mists of time with queen elizabeth first in a sort of rather aggressive way said my dogs will only wear my colors but this is now being waved in the case of the medal and i think it's because of this very closely it's been forged at a ceremony in downing street in june the russian president awarded the first twenty veterans because he is there instead of in russia we see all those who contributed to the fight against nazi germany as heroes and it gives me great pleasure to ward you all with a medal. but what toward all the men who imbarked on the freezing journey through the arctic waters is still under way for the past four months the russian embassy
3:20 am
here in london has been working hard to track down every single veteran eligible for the across the meadow but let me show you the actual room where they work takes place. with the help of the ministry of defense and its medals office the russian embassy has been busy writing to veterans and many of them have been writing back and we have. really found through those people who are writing from their hearts they really thankful for this medal this was such great feedback and sometimes we even redwood's tears these letters because it was really touching it's a medal that many of the men that took part in the convoys the youngest of whom. now eighty six say they thought they wouldn't live to see or to civil service for some very straight will forward to receive in this years but in fact they're going to turn it very far to where they don't force your neighbor down the rows are there any kind of
3:21 am
a new start right throughout our lives on and off throughout your summer and jimmy's not the only one i have a three thousand veterans have responded to the russian proposal to award them with the magic. this is in no way the last chapter in a book which is about recognizing the war effort in both countries the man that brave the arctic when to say they didn't take that russia and britain have finally managed to come together to decorate them for the heroism all those years ago. azzi london. and there's a new report out slamming britain's spying activities yet again find out why you see h.q. would need today spoof version of the professional social network linked in we have those details for you online right now also what altie dot com some spectacular pictures of indonesia that is a seven kilometers toll called my bass we're talking about mountain cinnabon you see all these dramatic pictures in the in the vision section right now would all be

israeli foreign ministry about the hopes of ever reaching a breakthrough at the mold of settlements is huge and probably irreversible in. the signal that the israeli government is sending to the palestinians to the rest of the middle east to the world by by continuing even aggressively it to settle it is very negative is signal because if low the talks with a lot. is in agreement it will preclude a peace agreement when we meet next time to talk with the palestinians in three or five who knows maybe ten years the volume of the settlements will be bigger and the chance for a palestinian state smaller so i personally do not understand
3:24 am
what this government is doing i know that a lot of pressures from the israeli right to go on settling but. the bit we know will ease enormous for these. i think for joining us here on r.t. said i'm rory sushi stepping aside for kate partridge she's coming out of a studio right now with a sporting headlines of the past week. did
