12:30 pm
hello this is out see all top stories a car bomb blows up in a residential series second largest city of aleppo it's important they left three dead in the terror attacks killing two dozen in the capital. anniversary for occupy wall street protesters as yet more heavy handed policing leaves many wondering if western nations practice the democracy they preach. and a loving father called them a tragedy the media's take on the u.s. soldier accused of turning his sleeping afghan village in. washington once again apologizing for the actions of its military. afghanistan's finance ministers told
12:31 pm
r.t. that it's hard to assess just how much damage and devastation the was brought to his country and its people about that coming right up. it. mr afghanistan's finance minister it's great to have you with us he looked to be with you so it's been a decade since afghanistan has become the front stage for the war on terror by the united states how much does it cost the nation the water has cost the new issue and a lot it's not i don't think you can put a dollar figure on this and if you see a hundred billion two hundred billion three hundred billion it's still here in. the diversity of thought goes beyond cannot mix. diversity is the source of public
12:32 pm
public confrontation diverse states any state institutions putting doors could go that. is not easy ten years ago after the taliban when we come about nothing existed it's not just the. infrastructure good but the government did not exist the system did not exist but with the support of the international community and with their participation on numerous fronts we believe me enormous progress but we have still a long way to go all the nation can rely on its own institutions to survive. for sort of four and eight accounts about ninety percent ninety five percent of the afghan g.d.p. we all know that two thousand and fourteen is to deadline for both doors drawl of the international forces plus the reduction of aid money how will love can stand sustain its economy after two thousand and fourteen we do after all do not want the
12:33 pm
international forces to be in afghanistan fighting for us. even in our longer the indian leader from the video out said we have to believe the prime responsibility of taking on security should be. there's a possibility of afghans and you think they will be ready by two thousand and four we are already if you if you go into afghanistan and. many of the operations in different parts of the countries are carried out by afghan forces and our forces. because they are culturally sensitive because they are part of the afghan mission. there. the rule will be much more effectively and much more positive than the role of an international force that with its economic thought this there is no doubt. it will have some impact on our economy but there is no nation in the world and indifferently rely on foreign aid. so when we are
12:34 pm
talking about transition we are not thinking only about security transition but also economic transition even if in the short term there is a downturn for the economy and the longer term there will be. good with with with proper after institutions and with peace i think absolutely an economy that will be more sustainable than it's today but exactly how bad will the town turn be because you know there are people who believe that afghan economy is wartime it's stoner drunk and as far as they are concerned right after two thousand and fourteen it's had it if not towards an economic disaster definitely a very sharp economic crisis but will not be the fortunate thing is that we have three years think about this in to prepare ourselves for. right in front of her as we had just a few moments ago we had the bonn conference in which we got the commitment and
12:35 pm
a pledge from the international community for its long term financial commitment to afghanistan both economic and security and couple of months we will have a chicago event a nato summit as well of the g. eight summit and which there will be a specific commitment to. our security forces for a longer term financial commitment and right after that in july we will have a conference on afghanistan focusing on economics and development local and that's where we expect to secure. a longer term commitment financial commitment significant commitment by law it will come down over time but it will not sort of sharply come down in twenty forty eight as for foreign aid they say that there's a huge difference between money spent on afghanistan and the money spent in afghanistan because this foreign institutions that operate in your country really help reboot the economy or is it really
12:36 pm
a question of pumping money from one pocket to another well this is an issue with foreign aid. not everything the planes are in a country spend in that country. it is it goes into the country or it doesn't even go into the country it's more acute of a problem in your country it is certainly in there it is again the focus of our recent discussions three years ago we had the kabul conference that was the prime focus there through we need to see more spend through afghan institutions if we need to see more aligned to afghan priority that we would like to see you more spend in afghanistan if this pending should generate opportunities within the country then big dollars going into companies that spend a portion of it in afghanistan and a big portion of it had back to their country and of course that opium economy which is always. it's topic for afghanistan and correct me if i'm wrong from what i understand it mounts to about thirty five to fifty percent of afghans g.d.p.
12:37 pm
right now not not not not really how much is not really you see. the there is what it generates is accurate for example it generates income for thought a month a generates income for the middlemen the business people who connect the international market with the afghan production and it generates again it has a huge market in the countries. in europe in russia everyone else it's in value or some one hundred billion dollars. but what what gifts to the producers of farmers is no more than five hundred two hundred million dollars they have to figure that it means in afghanistan so it hundred million dollars as part of sixteen billion dollars worth of g.d.p. this past year or could be seventeen years is a small percentage. is not
12:38 pm
a big percentage there is about two point five billion dollars that goes to the middle some of them are afghans some of them are non afghans that money does not strange afghanistan that money goes into regional countries regional hubs and destinations so the actual struggle there remains in afghanistan is quite smart ok but here is my question as this financial aid money to clients do you think you're going to see more and more of your people rely on opium can me there is certainly a possibility but the thing is this if you look into afghanistan it is closely correlated with insecurity places that are secure that are within our hands we don't see the production of walking and that is only in where we do not have control over saw for the if we forecast again on helping us constitution to secure our country and if we have and put pressure. on outside
12:39 pm
elements that come increase in security in afghanistan we believe that the security and stability the the opium issue will be done dealt with in a more sustainable in a more real manner but again of as long as there is security as long as there are areas out of reach there will be the opium of the production of opium and some of that money goes again to the traffickers some of this even goes to the insurgents it finances insurgents so it's in the interests of interests of insurgents as well to allow our production as well as the environment for the production of opening to come. you know over sixty percent of afghanistan's population is under the age of twenty five it's their respective labor market for these people to otherwise there really is a subject for terrorist recruiters this is the biggest challenge and therefore we say. we need to focus on more sustainable. implied in generation in all that.
12:40 pm
exists exists and fork within an hour because of that exist and focusing on infrastructure trade and transit there in the middle of the. they use the afghans that footage of kids and so again opportunities for education for higher education this can provide again the talented labor for production within afghanistan in some could even be exported now in two thousand two hundred cars i who is now the president of afghanistan said if the international community is really serious and seeing afghanistan secure it must help thinking reconstruction of infrastructure projects when we speak about this project no one is interested has it changed. first of all we must acknowledge that the big pieces of infrastructure that have happened during the drop of
12:41 pm
a funnel cloud which connects our major cities is worth right now are some eight billion dollars worth of infrastructure it has been built not least in the small amount of investment that has happened the institution of the cities the electricity right now have electricity in the next couple of years there will be for the expanded the first prime of understand how the railway which will be expanded upon. for the first time again in afghanistan we have the development of telecom. industry with private investment of some pretty billion dollars to thoroughly prepared by the environment it's increased. and basemen by by others in the middle of forces again the chinese coming investing some five billion plus. dollars in one mine in the copper mine in the indians in canadian is coming in investing in you were between ten to fifteen billion dollars in the next three to
12:42 pm
five years in another mineral deposit in iron ore and of course other. investors as well interest for the first time and i would remember it is also that exist twenty years ago twenty years ago twenty five years ago but we did hear there that much more interesting industry in a war or oil and gas who would have thought of things i think there are without the support of the international community in without the achievements of the. present cause those government interpreted the past twenty years or not have happened so those things have happened in addition to that of course there are particularly what we call it the transformation ticket is to focus on some other transform ational foundational investment that will put us on a path to sell three lines and self-sufficiency and that is again infrastructure of the it will focus on a way to get culture asserted warthe into food security as well as a commercial on our transport sector which is good for expanding the war on.

michael craft angle. in one of his plays french comic playwright john but he's merely summed up fencing as the art of giving without receiving is certainly a noble notion and with one hundred thirty men and a hundred fourteen women participating in the thirty seventh annual moscow saber fencing twenty mins it's no wonder the event continues to grow in popularity year by year preliminary rounds were hell throughout saturday in order to determine this year's individual champions italians and the french have always had a penchant for the sports but there were a plethora of other nations represented as well. and sometimes. i. think. this is the last chance for places to qualify for the upcoming summer. in the women's final russia's elite can manage the defender twenty levon title but took the time to overcome a chinese opponent after which she was pleased with the women but said
