the developments first here in moscow so peter why did the two man have to say. the the foreman of the headquarters here in central moscow well said your love for all of the russian foreign minister praised some of the progress that's being made by the assad government towards implementing kofi annan six point peace plan for the for syria now he did praise that but he also said that syria could have been more proactive in their efforts to do this because it was just. unbelievable stolen from we have information that syria's government is starting to feel the steps laid out and announced plans by returning troops and military hardware from cities i will be honest with you and we have shared our concerns with our syrian colleagues they could be more active and decisive in following the plan . well so your lover of also saying that he acknowledged that some elements in the
syrian opposition refused to still acknowledge kofi annan six point plan and he also called on those nations around the world that support the rebels in syria those that have the ear of rebel leaders saying that they must put pressure on those rebel leaders to to to foot to pressure them into that hearing to a cease fire you know the the syrian foreign minister said today i partially withdrawal of troops from the areas that are contained in the unarmed plan it has already started to take place also that some prisoners had been released. but however he did say that they are seeing a high rise in the amount of armed groups on the streets. of syria as at the moment armed rebel groups on the streets of of syria in terms of a cease fire though he said that that cease fire must be synchronized with the arrival of u.n. observers into the country now those that group of un observers is currently being

editor down the prime minister of turkey saying that his country was considering all options including knows that they don't even want to think about snow in terms of international reaction the united states has said turkey should bring this issue up with their nato allies turkey a member of the alliance and of course one of the fundamental principles of nato is that if one member of the alliance is a types all of the other members of the alliance step in to defend but nation well of course that would lead to a whole new reality in syria and could dramatically change. what's happening in the country right now you know the whole situation in syria still extremely complex we've seen support for the rebels and increased around the loss of funding coming in for them from groups like the friends of syria and the sara first now reports are we seeing them syrian rebels use turkey as a safe haven from which to launch attacks against syrian troops syrian army troops
. walking a fine line as kansas thousands of refugees have crossed the syrian border into turkey keeping the peace here has not been easy and now the violence is still deva thing comes higher reaching across the border. and into a refugee camp government forces killing members of the free syrian army started talking and setting up a buffer zone to ensure the security of its southern border and to take civilians fleeing from the violence in syria this also raises serious concerns that that could undermine diplomatic efforts to end the conflict by setting the stage. for a military intervention well serious questions will be raised about just what a refugee camp was located so close to a conflict area even louder voices want to know why the rebels are being allowed to use the town as a safe haven before turning back into syria to continue their fight there walking
toward across the border again maybe. the army. some people come back you know those people work with. the border crossing to syria. and of the many of the free syrian army people here there are people here and they're operating there inside you know. let him go on back and forth as well as a civilian refugee can take he has the military army defectors and the man considered the head of the f.s.a. in the country the camp with a state closely guarded. thirty's make it extremely hard to access information here but we managed to speak to one member of the free syrian army about what they're wanting from the turkish government. and from.
all of this. is not just the at the say that turkey supporting it recently played host to the friends of syria conference where many countries including gulf states qatar and saudi arabia agree to. contribute millions of funding the free syrian army it was a nice this some country soars undermining. to put an end to the violence in the country beastly and these latest incidents are just the latest in a long line of setbacks this has this to be realized syrian refugees here skeptical that a solution is close at hand thousands of people have made the journey across the border from syria to refugee camps like this one in some cases they're just a few miles from their homes there's a big market epic struggle on the left unable to return. the haploid province on
the turkish border. britain is seeking to follow in america's footsteps by having east and piecing arp its military presence in asia the prime ministers of japan and the u.k. are negotiating a massive arms deal on possible deployment of a royal navy submarine a region garman aided by china parties are about has more on this from london. over britain it hopes to gain two things really from these talks firstly it's big business because when it comes to defense japan is a completely untapped market because of the self-imposed than really on taking part in the on threat since the second world war so britain will obviously be very keen to explore that but secondly this is a chance for britain it hopes to exert its influence on the region and what is already a highly competitive area and one of the it is traditionally and certainly geographically china's the main really because one thing that britain hopes that will come out of these talks in this agreement is for a more regular deployment of british submarines in the area and these are hunter
killer submarines one of the ones that stalk missiles with ranges of up to two thousand kilometers even this kind of activity really mir is america's recent activity in the area also seeking to exert its influence in the asia pacific region recently the u.s. deployed two hundred marines in australia deployment that china actually saw as an incursion on its fear of influence and in its own backyard even well certainly north korea will be one of the main talking points here with britain seeking to allay japan's fee is because tensions already very high in the area north korea planning a rocket launch later this week it says it's merely launching a satellite into orbit that japan south korea north korea's neighbors are both fearing is something much worse they're saying it's a provocation they fear it could be a test of a long range missile and threaten to shoot down any falls on their territory and
now there's talk of britain and america adding a physical presence to regional issues will certainly add to the tensions and even more of their reporting there from london and we've been following the whole story and you can track it all on our website r.t. dot com there's plenty more for you on line and close. getting cross across. fossils of one of the world's biggest football clubs ryall madrid have decided to remove a tiny cross from the top of the team's back to track more fans in the muslims. plus rising expenses and britain's most costly military project adverted makes london for considering its pricey partnership with the us. once a death row inmate now he's spending life behind bars for shooting and killing a police officer a case of foreign journalist and black panther movement jamal gained attention

commemoration events no presidents nor prime ministers are taking part this time unlike last year also almost two hundred relatives of those who were killed in that plane crash also here to lay flowers in greece at the side of the awful tragedy soon also be going to the katyn memorial just twenty kilometers from here also a side of a very tragic moment in the polish history now also certainly hundreds of thousands will be mourning the dead in poland just as it was happening two years ago i was there in warsaw and a crowd of observing with my own eyes the grief and the emotions of the polish nation when this tragedy happened now certainly two years on a lot has changed the investigation separate investigations by both russia and poland have been held blaming bad weather and actions of the flight crew for this tragic plane crash now still emotions are running high among some of the politicians in poland which are using this grief still to write to power now in my report that we can have a look at the events of the last two years and the current state of affairs in this
regard. it was destined to become a new era in turbulent ties between moscow and warsaw a high profile polish delegation was flying to western russia to commemorate twenty or thousand post offices killed by soviet troops at katyn village in one thousand nine hundred forty but it never reached its destination. the model three a sort of plane descended on his usual i heard a loud noise and oppose didn't pay attention to it i just thought it was under. a plane crash killed all ninety six passengers on board including the president and first lady and most of the country's political elite separate investigations by both moscow and warsaw blamed for bad weather and dubious decisions by the crew they were warned of heavy fog and low visibility work sold to choose a different runway but for whatever reason decided to land and you weigh. there was
a very clear piece of guidance from traffic controllers that no conditions existed to lie and so it seems to me that the pilot in command should have taken. the sensible decision to divert to another field but of course we have the presidents on board. we have a head of the publisher who is on board. various of the big trees were going through a specific event in the lands and area. you know an awful lot of pressure was also wrong this guy shoulders. such a huge loss was hard to take as hundreds of thousands grieved across holand but for some accepting the truth was even harder despite lots of evidence and eye witness accounts supporting the investigation some political forces in poland have been
pointing the finger at moscow kocinski east wind brought a whole slew of believes the crash was orchestrated. poland is subject to a process of force the needs are concerning the somalians going crash which increasingly looks like a terrorist act if there were explosions on board if this catastrophe looks increasingly like a sense a nation then this means there's a new development in international affairs. polish right wing parties try to use this millions crash to score points in presidential and parliamentary complaints which followed the tragedy with their failure to win votes with anti russian rhetoric say experts proved warsaw's line wasn't in tune with the thinking of the polish people and that a new page in relations has after all been turned despite it happening in the most tragic of ways the wreckage of the polish presidential plane is still here just eighteen kilometers from the site of the katyn massacre and in many ways this is
the reminder that the smolensk plane crash was a tragedy inside another tragedy and while the katyn massacre had scored the relations for many decades the events of two years ago have eventually brought its own countries closer in both the common grief and in the attempt to find the truth . see reporting from smolensk in western russia. israel is targeting a german nobel prize winning author because it's upset at a poem he wrote gunter grass has been declared persona non grata for denouncing israel and iran rather even his recent work and calling it a threat to world peace i'm getting a columnist for israeli newspaper ha'aretz says the reactions of certainly exaggerated. their reaction of is rules out before potion aggressive and it's really stupid and ridiculous to be clear. as it was.
only because of he's view in any democracy people will be prevented to enter the country because of anything they say or express there isn't disability in the world no will go to vote but there is so much energy to wade critiques on israel and so much unjustified critical of israel and the sway your folder is it taking anyone who cares through it to rethink and decides israel as an enemy is really is the defeat is finally counterproductive because the world ruled by. a slow of russian opposition leaders have joined a hunger strike approach as a show of solidarity for a former candidate of mayor of the russian city of astor haim elect shane says he lost the election as a result of foul play citing out official exit polls that placed him just ahead of his rival shane and his followers have already been on hunger strike for twenty
