12:01 pm
from a student center in moscow this is r.t. with the twenty four hours a day there is an air of anxiety in geneva where a long anticipated deal on iran's nuclear program could potentially be signed although foreign diplomats in the iranian delegation sound optimistic any further details about just what is happening there at the moment almost impossible to extract is there in geneva for us so there's been so much waiting and yet still no clarity any idea what's happening. well the p five plus one foreign ministers have been meeting that's all the world powers negotiating here in apart from iran but we did hear a little bit earlier from iran's foreign minister zarif and explained that the agreement being discussed today is consisting of three stages and he. also said
12:02 pm
that that potential agreement he said he could reassure that it contains public recognition of iran's right to enrich uranium now as we speak security is being beefed up in the media center where we are and there is talk of an imminent press conference so we could get an answer to whether or not there has been a deal very very shortly any idea as to why it's been taking so long. well all the foreign ministers just before they went into these crucial negotiations this morning spoke a very small but important problems that remained in this agreement and that was echoed to me a little bit earlier by russia's deputy foreign minister that explained that one of the biggest problems and the biggest sticking points throughout these negotiations but still today was the heavy water facility in amman which could potentially
12:03 pm
produce weapons grade plutonium now at the moment as i said it really is make or break we're waiting for this press conference and i've got to tell you it could go either way. well as you say we're waiting for the results of that media briefing and bring us up to date as soon as you hear anything thanks very much indeed for the meantime in geneva but a major obstacle to the deal israel's opposition to any hint of a compromise during the previous round of talks two weeks ago the country applied considerable pressure to influence the positions of france and the u.s. . has more now from jerusalem. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu continues to be as critical as ever he has consistently called this a bad deal he has expressed skepticism over the rainy and statement that they are not intending to build a nuclear bomb and he has also say that the lifting of sanctions does nothing more than merely give them breathing space now this growing statements by the israeli
12:04 pm
prime minister has seen his relationship with the united states hit an all time low the obama administration has criticized his all or nothing approach as the israeli american relationship to tary aides so what we've seen is an increase in the warming of relations between the israelis and the french the french president francois hollande was here in jerusalem earlier this week and the two countries spoke of mutual understanding of unbreakable bonds of common history and shared values many saying that netanyahu nasties the french as these new here and this is of course because of the french criticism against the deal in fact it was the french that maybe credit as having prevented it deals on going through before at the same time there are reports circulating and there has been for quite a few days now that the israelis are working with the saudis behind the scenes that the possibility of a military strike is now back on the cards as this deal is signed off the report
12:05 pm
suggests that the saudis will give the israelis is space there is talk of some kind of tactical support that they will give to israeli warplanes if indeed they're trying now who follows through with his threats of a military strike once this deal is in fact signed off. we spoke to john limbert he's the former u.s. deputy assistant secretary of state for iran and he was among the diplomats held hostage during the tourist crisis at the u.s. embassy in tehran more than thirty years ago and believes it's israel not iran which has become more hardline but we've seen i think in the last three or four months since the election of president president rouhani and since some of the statements of the support of the supreme leader is i think a change of direction and a serious change of direction by the israeli friends tell me is within israel itself there's a lot of controversy over the issue of iran and what should israeli what should the
12:06 pm
israeli stand be and some of the more extreme stands that are coming that coming out which oppose any any deal are creating concern and concern in israel a lot of people are quite have been criticizing the prime minister look what. prime minister netanyahu seems to be asking for is not a negotiated deal but in fact an iranian surrender where they are pressured into simply give giving up well that's that's not a negotiation that's a so that's a surrender and if you get if you do squeeze somebody so hard that they surrender such an it's such an agreement simply isn't going to last. and of course we'll be following the progress of those nuclear talks in geneva throughout the day and night on air and online and at r.t. dot com and also on our website we're asking you about the prospects of an agreement so you go there to have your say on the issue be good to hear from me.
12:07 pm
germany's chancellor angela merkel says she wants to talk to russia's president vladimir putin concerning ukraine's latest snubbing of the e.u. brussels has accused moscow of blackmailing here of into ditching plans for european trade integration and joining a regional customs union instead moscow however says kiev was scared away by the political and economic pressure discontent over the abandoned trade talks between kiev and brussels materialized on the streets of the ukrainian capital crowds gathered for a second day of protest despite the government insisting a deal would have devastated the country's economy and he looks at the broken expectations back to square one for ukraine's politics or kiev central square to be precise in two thousand and four the orange revolution started here gave independence square the event which dramatically changed political life in ukraine and set it on a year integration course nine years later the square is filled with people again only this time they are here because their president took
12:08 pm
a turn around well these protesters have been furious with the decision we have to wait for an independent ukraine we have to fight for tomorrow other people believe ukraine may have in fact dodged a bullet the decision to suspend the preparation of signing the association agreement and zone of free trade with the e.u. is the only one possible in the current difficult economic situation which we now have in ukraine you have a delusion but will be better in the e.u. talk to. polish people talk to variants right now the e.u. is. kind of a death spiral the e.u. has little right now to offer grain hours after the korean government. cision reports emerge that unocal beach told his lithuanian counterpart in a phone call that russia economically blackmailed key of out of signing the deal with the european union. i don't know what the ukrainian president was talking about with his lithuanian counterpart maybe we should all scar american friends
12:09 pm
about that well of saying that ukraine would not enjoy trade benefits with russia if it formed a free trade zone with the e.u. is blackmail how would one describe these statements by european officials i disagree that the agreement could be signed later it would be very difficult because too much risk is involved ukraine has missed a chance to remove the main obstacle in its way through integration with the e.u. because when i heard some dodges found out yesterday that ukraine has suspended not cancelled but suspended negotiations with the e.u. and wants to review everything we heard a threat from the e.u. to ukraine all the way up to organizing mass protests this is pressure and blackmail having received no promise of compensation for potential economic damages from aligning with the e.u. give wants to create a three party commission with brussels and moscow to find a way to alleviate those losses which suggest unocal which has merely suspended not
12:10 pm
council the association strife the opposition meanwhile says it will continue taking people into the streets and demands that the president is impeached alexi russia reporting from kiev in ukraine. he's been gathering expert analysis on how he have could benefit from signing potential trade pacts and here's what we heard. the opportunity to be part of an absolutely huge free trade zone it's a fantastic idea but the problem we really have is that already the european union model has been deeply compromised by the addition of countries that weren't ready such as bold garia and rumania the european union itself really has to concentrate on its own internal economic problems to say. so there was an unexpected totally unexpected move is very strange because of course you can quest to balance and see where it simply is. for example the european union to dictate
12:11 pm
to greece. or to perth to go into other countries and. tribes and millions of people losing their jobs. i think that it became clear to the ukrainian president which that if you signed that deal he's not going to get anything financially the e.u. so basically office things which are not changeable you know it doesn't offer immediate economic benefits to their ukraine at some point in the future will have access to the e.u. markets but when will this happen. on the websites we've lined up the five reasons why decided against further european integration go to r.t. don't come to share your thoughts in the comments section. thousands of people spilled out to march in cities across germany to commemorate an anti fascist activists murdered in the early ninety's the government's on a crusade against the views promoted by far right groups and. is that the event in
12:12 pm
berlin for us. sold off relatively peaceful so far. this march by the anti fascist group is basically one of the the major events of the wind period. for the anti fascist and far left movements in the past we have seen counter demonstrations by rights and neo nazi greece but none of that seems to be to be taking place a certain where i am right now the chair is just getting underway now it's a march the reason that they march on this day is this is the anniversary of the brutal murder of silvio maya who is a left wing activist he was stabbed to death in a underground station twenty one years ago and that's why the anti fascist groups take place and take part in this march they're also campaigning against what they see as a brutal right wing regime rising up in hungary and they add that suppressing poor people they are also people out campaigning against the gap between the rich and

the pool rent is what usually happens at these type of events people railing against what they see as the terrors of capitalism. or to live him just ahead the u.s. oil lobby well and truly doesn't sell for a pair of bills that would make testing stream expensive and federal regulation of the policy that and other stories coming up after the break. for the future. of the show the technology keeping the moscow metro rolling. weighs in the oil industry and the dream team of robots to places too dangerous for humans. to me and for the latest news in innovations here on c.n.n. . we've got the future.
12:14 pm
again if we take up your personal example off the top in your fall and you know you see them later on to the years later you know some governments can afford to do that not only. prominent journalist. has a saying i remember thinking at the time i discovered that if they were tapping my phone in consequential. nation been tapping into the telephone. from the greatest highs to extreme lows after being taken on an historic walk in space the sochi twenty fourteen olympic torch is now plunged into the depths of the deepest lake in the world lake baikal in siberia. witnessed the dive. you're
12:15 pm
watching the climax of this very special torch relay. where the olympic flame is making history and once again it's been. on the water by a team of three divers and now it's been given to the aptly named. even without his wings is happily flying with the top of his job to take it to the shore where it will light up the olympic cauldron. a fitting climax to a spectacular show out of one of russia's most beautiful natural landmarks. protesting could soon become a thing of luxury of any drill site in the united states courtesy of new dollars co crafted by the oil lobby aside from forcing demonstrators to shell out five
12:16 pm
thousand. dollars for a permit the bill would also excuse the federal government from regulating the fracking industry going to check on reports. when romania granted the us oil giant chevron more than a million acres of land to drill for shale deposits thousands of romanians took to the streets to protest they soon found out there was little they could do to protect their soil. in poland farmers stood up against chevron to fight fracking to no avail fracking pumps a high pressure cocktail of water sand and chemicals the underground to release shale gas from bedrock environmentalists say it has the potential to trigger earthquakes as well as pollute the groundwater and the surrounding countryside the problems with show it with shale gas mining in poland is a question of secretiveness and kind of not telling people the real truth about
12:17 pm
what's going on and not always telling never telling the other side the downside and i discover this to be true with the polish government and poor polish authorities because they are in fact on the side of these big corporations walski partly shot his documentary drill baby drill in poland he says polish state television refused to broadcast that you know normal people. can get the information to fight against the corporations and the normal people you know the middle class people their objective is really to protect the land here to protect their place and the chevron. the corporations are here to exploit the land and they're going to leave but the farms will be here and this is really what the fight is about u.s. energy giant drills both abroad and at home and congress has been more than helpful to them domestically this week the house of representatives passed a bill that would impose a five thousand dollars fee on anyone wishing to stage an official protest against
12:18 pm
the drilling project. to become law the bill also needs to make its way to the senate before being sunk by the president this is pathetic sad silly attempt by industry to squelch democracy opponents of fracking on both sides of the atlantic or even more fearful about the future of the democratic process as their governments and major corporations negotiate free trade agreements like the one between the u.s. and the e.u. that would effectively enable american companies to bypass european courts and challenge e.u. governments and international tribunals whenever they felt that laws in the areas of public health the environment or social protection interfere with their profits and the opponents say it would give trans nationals even greater access to their soil and leave the people with a little less say about their land than a check on our t.v. . tony juniper one of britain's leading environmentalist tells us there will be
12:19 pm
a serious price to pay in the future. makes more money for some people in the short term and those people happen to have very powerful leverage over government institutions this is not about whether this is a better energy source or not in an economic sense it's basically a rigged market that the environmental costs are not being paid for by the shale gas companies therefore we get a false illusion as to this being a cheap energy source when in fact it's only cheap now because we're passing on the costs of it being used into the future for our children and grandchildren indeed we're already beginning to see some of the costs of this kind of energy being used in the in the present and that hurricane that hit the philippines a couple of weeks ago is an example of the kind of extreme weather conditions that we can expect to accompany rapid warming of the atmosphere. there's been an unusual twist in the political career of one israeli man as he's critics saying his political program should have landed him in jail for racism not in the
