12:00 pm
you watching our t.v. tonight made room for further agreement moscow claims the u.s. knows no reason to proceed with the controversial missile defense plans in europe if iran plays by the rules. police and protesters fired tear gas at each other in the ukrainian capital during a second of unrest over the government pulling back from an e.u. deal. between all industry propaganda and environmental panic it's hard to get a grip on fracking so decide for yourself later this hour when we hear from all executives and those forced to abandon their homes because of the controversial fuel extraction technique.
12:01 pm
live in world news nine pm here in moscow a very good evening shoots kevin i am with you this hour well russia's foreign minister says that reaching a compromise on iran's nuclear program should eliminate any reasons for the u.s. to construct an anti missile defense system in eastern europe the american led plans long been a bone of contention between the two countries russia sees the shield as a threat to its national security while the u.s. has maintained that it's needed to protect europe from so-called rogue states like iran so they could now be a chance then for this dispute to finally be a result of the deal to bring terrans atomic program under control but more of that is political. it's a deal that some new diplomats fred. and as the crucial make or break iran nuclear talks continued into the night details of how they were going for eluding the journalists camped out in geneva so we waited and waited and waited
12:02 pm
while diplomats from six world powers and iran inched their way closer to an historic breakthrough than after sixteen hours a tweet from the e.u.'s top diplomat a deal had been done. that the six negotiating powers agreed to recognize iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy including its right to enrichment under the condition that this program is placed under strict control by the i.a.e.a. issued. as we received word of the agreement we got details to iran had agreed to reduce its uranium enrichment from twenty to a maximum of five percent use u.s. centrifuges while halting construction of a new reactor near the town of iraq. throughout this long list of concessions iran's foreign minister still had a smile on his face and its hand he won for his country a partial easing of sanctions allowing to iran to regain control of billions of
12:03 pm
dollars worth of much needed funds in foreign banks we believe that it is the sanctions that have brought us to this negotiation and ultimately to the more significant negotiation to follow for a comprehensive agreement others have stressed that it wasn't the stress of more punitive measures but diplomacy that won the day over the night in the case of these talks the fact that that the iranians have shown time after time that there is no evidence that iran's nuclear program is anything but peaceful is something that has been ignored by the western media and western governments but this despite all that iran's real civilians has forced these countries to accept. enrichment and again the russians and the chinese have played a very constructive role and i don't think that sanctions played as much of a role as a recognition by the united states and britain and other countries that we need to
12:04 pm
engage iran because iran is becoming increasingly influential this is a leader and the interim agreement in six months time well its powers and do on a set to return to the negotiating table but after ten years in jail. the deal signed here in the middle of the night is a game changer what he'd like to see me. so the agreement is only valid for six months it is a sign of bigger things to come according to professor of international relations. both parties have made clear part of a pop confidence building process and that is exactly what they're doing the fact that i was going to be there the cameras are monitoring stuff on a daily bases reporting back to h.q. in vienna and from there to the security council and so on and all of that is vital to provide the guarantees that america's allies need that iran is sticking to the script and of course also for the administration in washington to show its own
12:05 pm
series that actually this is a good deal not just for iran and the region in the middle east but also for united states it looks like the deals made life more difficult for president obama while defending the administration's yes to the concessions he now has to calm down israel as well as hawkish lawmakers who did miss the chance to criticize the motion today that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure and flying in the face of president obama what was needed in geneva. last night is more sort of. it's a story still. does not move to a safer place in an environment where israel as well as many u.s. lawmakers don't think that iran should develop nuclear technology at all the obama administration had to engage in diplomatic acrobatics to both acknowledge iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time we
12:06 pm
approach these negotiations with a basic understanding of iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy but because of its record of violating its obligations iran must accept strict limitations on its nuclear program that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation. and to mutual agreement despite the officials attempts to appease the hawks punches are flying here it looks like we've tacitly agreed that they will be enriching for commercial purposes now on the road so i think you're going to see on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the final agreement another senator marco rubio call the deal quote
12:07 pm
a blow to our allies in the region who are already concerned about america's commitment to their security and i think a lot of people both in the middle east and on capitol hill are very concerned that this interim deal becomes the new norm opponents of the deal in washington and abroad are already working not to let it survive the six month trial the obama administration is walking on eggshells before congress israel and its allies in the coffers it's trying to convey a carefully worded message which is you cannot threaten war all the time in washington i'm going to check out the israeli national security expert over an old woman told us that the harsh response from the israeli government towards the deal those knows reflect the national mood we've seen over the past twenty four hours or so increasing number of analysts and commentators who have come out and said that this deal is something israel could live with and even if it's not perfect and it's
12:08 pm
not something that we would have opted for ourselves that it's something that's not as bad as our prime minister has described so there's definitely a spectrum of opinion here on this issue and as there is in every issue what we do know is in the week or two leading up to the agreement there was a poll taken about what people felt as though the prime minister's rhetoric towards the united states and a plurality supported him and only a very small percentage of the public thought that he was fully and justified but that may be different after the agreements come to come into being we'll have to see. clashes have broken out for a second day in ukraine as protesters defied police efforts to disperse them nonstop rallies been ongoing since thursday in kiev over the government's decision to suspend the deal which would give it closer ties with the e.u. and is in the ukrainian capital for r.t. . there are protesters appear to have set up town camps at european square suggesting that they may stay here much more time and it's not always as musical as it is here right now we see clashes between them and the police corruption from time to time with both sides of the police and the protesters using gas against
12:09 pm
each other the people here they are strongly opposing the decision by the government to not sign the trade agreement with europe at the moment there are others of course that believe this was the right approach to magic decision but rather well decision looking at potential damages which a great could have suffered in case of signing this agreement it's easy to see why first of all modernizing the factories at the country would have cost the boat a lot more than one hundred billion dollars something the country cannot afford at the moment and waited to modernize it would have led to these factories being closed and tens of thousands finding themselves in the streets not certainly a good outcome for the country he as well as raising the chariots for electricity heating and gas something the government had to do because to comply with european standards also a very big problem for ukraine at the moment not taking all that into consideration and the fact that the euro would not offer any kind of financial compensation for what the actual damage is the government decided not to sign especially after the i.m.f.
12:10 pm
said it would not provide ukraine with another step i say shalom which would have helped the prime minister of the country in fact said that the country doesn't need help like that one its economy is in danger of completely collapsing some politicians in europe have said that russia blackmailed ukraine out of signing this deal the russian president hit back saying that he doesn't fact europe which blackmailed ukraine in the course of negotiations standoff continues very interesting to see where it goes and we have to follow all the details and all the developments. moral why he have got cold feet over the deal had to a website that would point to all the financial wordle standing in the way to agreement at the top for the list is the price of natural gas may just find a way around about those shale drilling this year ukraine sign corp deals with all judge shell. chevron which could help the country slash domestic fuel costs but do the benefits of this technology balance out the environment environmental damage is the big question these days we explore darla later in the program two.
12:11 pm
tonight russian and papal flags are flying together in the vatican where the pope is welcoming president vladimir putin it's their first ever meeting and syria is expected to feature heavily in the conversation. for us. this is the first meeting of president putin with pope francis since he was elected last march the head of the vatican does have influence over one point two billion people roughly so this is quite an important diplomatic meeting perhaps aimed at moving the two countries closer towards each other and really the pope and the russian president do have a lot of points of view when they're in common on lots of issues syria for instance the vatican same as russia have been calling for the rights of christians in syria to be protected also ahead of the g twenty summit in st petersburg the pope pleaded with the international community not to intervene and militarily into the situation
12:12 pm
there pretty much which is what russia has been doing since the beginning of the conflict now finally recently the pope wrote a letter to the russian president personally thanking him for his efforts to try to establish peace in the country following the. chemical weapons breakthrough which many consider as a diplomatic victory of moscow and now this is not the first time that russian leaders are visiting the vatican but the heads of the vatican have never visited moscow so the way things have been going we may see that happen in the future but of course all the afternoon attention from the russian patriarch. seems to the pope and president putin also share a usual their distaste of shale gas fracking is holding us. recently posing environmental activists reported expressing strong concern about us all joined chevron exploiting shale gas in south america the year before more oil field executive de turn and a fucking campaigner spoken that he blames industry bent on profits for pushing
12:13 pm
harmful technology this is a technology that basically has been proven not to work as the oil industry claims and it has resulted in contamination irrefutable evidence of contamination of water soil and the air and also significant negative health impacts on the population that live above the gas fields what it reflects is the fact that we are dealing with a cowboy industry that is driven by greed and little else and in fact i would simply implore that people do a bit of research for themselves and they look at the damage and the contamination that has been wreaked around the world and basically we are doing everything we possibly can to ensure that this does not happen in the u.k. i spoke to one fracking activist who was forced to abandon her home when a resulting bore hole appeared nearby she told me what it's like living near a drilling site. i learned about this industry the hard way i worked for industry
12:14 pm
first and then moved out to the country and bought my own place and then i experienced the environmental impacts all around me there's the possibility of water contamination water depletion and many many horrible air impacts and the traffic in just a huge disturbance knowing why it's been a fitting a very few people the industry and a few large landowners and it's coming at great expense to the people who live on the land. yet another leader bahrain's pro for movement full of victims who were let loose government crackdown in a couple of minutes we'll be hearing from his wife about the campaign to get him out of jail also reporting to that to us will make his lead to sweet talk politicians the trouble by ongoing spying revelations.
12:15 pm
if you're thinking about an alcoholic drink associated with russia it's probably not going to be one that springs into your head but they've been making it here on the black sea coast for more than ten thousand years and there's an industry which really can compete with the best the rest of the world has to offer i've come to meet some of the people growing the greats and to see if i can find out the secret to the perfect.
12:16 pm
again the bahraini regime has hit out once again you need to stifle dissent this time arresting the chairman of the european bahraini organization for human rights as many jailed activists are saying jail is charged with inciting hatred against the ruling one of the monarchy has told his wife we have in mind with asthma darwish hi there thanks for being with us obviously it's a stressful time for you right now can you tell us first of all about your husband's arrest what led to it. all that work perfectly well didn't we're trying to get back to i was very shortly
12:17 pm
we'll try and regain the line to a very pleased have had on the program you know we can get to at the moment ok let's move on and let's talk to somebody else but a completely different story we'll get back to us for just a second or two american senators have made a flying visit to europe trying to smooth over the drip drip of spy scandals involving the u.s. and its european allies it comes among revelations from supported snowden that showed american spy agency has been a siphoning off information by installing malicious software on tens of thousands of computer networks let's keep our fingers crossed hope for european parliament or miller and his daughter from sweden's pirate party is on the line now to talk to us either a millionaire can you hear us. good. group the pirate party often hammers home the need for individual privacy online isn't it clear though that really this battle is well and truly lost now. but i don't think that it is well and truly lost so for instance the european data protection regulation proposes that a minimisation principles for all companies that deal with personal data this would
12:18 pm
be a very good investment for the future and it would also allow us to build more safe and confidence inspiring infrastructures i think generally also be politically underestimate how we can create markets that we actually want and so i would like to see from the european commission a more initiatives towards disclosure requirements transparency reports other types of market regulation really for the benefit of consumer rights and if you have effective disclosure requirements also these companies the security agencies will not have as many vulnerabilities hopefully in software to exploit which is currently a very big problem ok we'll talk about what might come in the future just about what's happening right now to american lawmakers right now. to talk about those really really embarrassing spying revelations lately what sort of reception we're going to get one would hope that the german government is able to protect its own interests and that of european citizens by giving them some stern reprimanding
12:19 pm
right ok what would you have to say to them if they came to visit you and they've been spying on you. so i mean what i think is relevant is how do we get out of the situation how do we create some kind of positive future vision for how do we get along how do we create a good society together and in order to do this we need a better transparency rules for information technologies we need to figure out what is going on what is our purpose with all of these information technologies that we're having and where we we can't replace a positive vision for the future with gadgetry that's that's not good politics and so european leaders need to sit down and think how do we continue our important mission for peace market development economic prosperity and citizen interaction and if we could do that. you know just go back for a question just now you're a parliamentarian have you been worried that the of sensitive information you deal with has been maybe looked up by somebody else other than yourself briefly while i
12:20 pm
mean of course so whenever you use information technology is at this time because we haven't won the billion dollar per. security complex in the world anything you do on the internet is by definition vulnerable it's a big problem that we're putting health care political proceedings democratic rule schools all of our friendships in this forum when it's at the same time clearly a war zone where a security agency's from around the planet are dealing with their fascination for cyber so that is of course a major concern of mine but i do also believe that it's a fixable problem we just need to have some inspired political visions for what we need to do or what i mean if you folklore the justice commissioner recently said you should create its own spy agency so it could play on the play the same level field as the us was doing was a bit tit for tat i guess what do you think about that. so my experience of the on
12:21 pm
the real thing is that when she has a political idea normally that is strongly attached to some political value of the person that she is very good at living up to those are values i do admire her political leadership but i think she's made a wrong call in this question it is quite obvious that it's not in the european tradition to do secret spying and other types of. bad activities where you sponsor in security industries with public money and i i hope that she will reconsider and rather develop an agenda for e.p.a.'s through transparency. collaboration cooperation maybe even peer to peer kind of these centralized mutual governance of these infrastructures because it's really in the european tradition and i think if anyone could do it. in a very convincing way it's actually. her so i hope that she will reconsider this because i don't think that she is creating a better future for anyone by persisting with this point and we're really around a lot of things resource things banality tomorrow which preceded just love us at
12:22 pm
home knows what we were trying to get ahold of us from a dog which is what we're really keen to talk to and forth we cannot get lined up we'll be trying to get to a bit later ok meantime let's take a look so the world knew she was clashes between libyan government troops militiamen in the eastern coastal city a big guard fourteen people dead dozens more wounded witnesses say explosions could be heard and fix smoke billowed up from where the fighting took place the army's declared a state of emergency in the city last week another armed group opened fire on a crowd in the capital tripoli killed forty protesters. when scuffle between anti-government protests is and police in thailand during a second day of rallies calling for the prime minister to quit demonstrators try to force their way past parliament into the building but they were pushed back they said the p.m.'s controlled by a brother taxand chenault who went into exile while he led the government more than a hundred thousand people marched against the ruling party office and. there's hope in britain that the country's turned a corner and is getting over one of its worst ever financial dramas it's too early
12:23 pm
to start popping the champagne corks though in some quarters where critics say endemic decline is set in and will leave some struggling for generations laura smith reports. so the bank of england's forecasts for economic growth is on the up unemployment down it sounds great but beyond those immediate fake is a darker picture that pretty much all the measures by which we track economic progress are in decline people's real incomes falling more and more of it spent on basic essentials uniquely this generation of young people is worse educated than their parents and obesity female life expectancy and child mortality among the worst in europe so needing economics commentator jeremy warner says growth is good but warns it's unsustainable there's not enough exports is not enough business investment in this economy now provided the economy continues to grow the hope is
12:24 pm
that these things will eventually come true but at the moment there's no very little sign of and you say that these key indicators say living standards education health these are all on the decline talk to me about that ever since the crisis began living standards have been under a lot of pressure really for the first time again in modern history we are seeing a situation where people leaving the workforce and retiring are better educated than the people joining the workforce and if your standards of education are declining than your relative income in future relative to the rest the world is going to decline with it what does it all add add up to then the underlying economic indicators i mean where are we going when i think. an extreme wakeup call really i mean britain has a lot of things going for it it's still reckoned to be one of the most open economies in the world it has the biggest global financial center in the world these underlying trends are very worrying and something needs to be done about them
12:25 pm
very very urgent warner says the government's doing some of the right things but to gingerly and ultimately unless radical actions taken in those key areas britain's economy is living on borrowed time. thanks for news pulitzer with me kevin i mean just over iraq just under thirty four minutes time on tuesday when you serve a twenty four seven dot com next though the top sporting moment of the week a part which will be here. when the crisis leaves us traces everywhere. empty closed rooms become the norm. children pay for the mistakes of adults. by working in a tobacco field or in
12:26 pm
a café. they are the ones who come back home last. so his games are just in their memories. they all told him a language of all but i will only react to situations i have read the reports i'm likely to put to the no i will leave them to stay current a comment on your latter point of the month to say it's ok because are you talking no. thank you no more weasel words. when you vade a direct question be prepared for a chase when you run should be ready for a battle freedom of speech and little doubt the freedom to cost.
12:27 pm
