north korea launches its controversial long range rocket he leaves the ground but winds up the u.n. security council to consider taking measures. the world body also sets its sights on syria with a draft resolution on the table to force a cease fire and send in an observer mission but. coming soon to a screen you julia that sound is highly anticipated new program is on its way to r.t. join me for more in just a moment to find out what's the world's most wanted whistleblower has in store.
costing live from the heart of the russian capital you're watching r.t. . in spite of warnings that it was defying international law both korea launched its controversial long range rocket but within moments it and plummeted into the sea even so there's anger at the u.n. security council which is going over what action to take against the country for violating its resolutions rationing tains the north has a right to a peaceful space program but that it should not go against the u.n. he's not he's been been he's. the launch was definitely part of a long running power game for pyongyang in which the rocket galaxy three was just the latest piece to be played but no one expected the eventual outcome extreme international concern was expressed by north korea's neighbors including china russia and japan as well as heavy criticism from the united states all agree that the launch violates the u.n. a serious allusion banning the country from testing long range missile technology
yang ignored it all and one to head with its plan which went spectacularly wrong there were fears that the launch was a cover for testing long range missile technology and if that were so expect for dramatically but most who insist that north korea does have the right to develop a peaceful space program and the issue should be settled through diplomatic means a negative reaction from washington is clues this tell lies stretched tensions in the region closer to breaking point than the launch itself washington's chipping its military focus from middle east to the asian pacific and is expanding its military presence with u.s. naval ships arriving and join the newer is being announced all surge an activity that makes china very unhappy experts believe that the and goal of the expansion is designed to challenge china's dominance and its own backyard. of asia specialist it says north korea actually wants to east tensions and lift tough american back
sanctions off its shoulders. it's all part of the negotiating ploy with the would be american. on the run. excellently to make some concessions but at the same time they have to stand up for what they regard as a sovereign rights and russia and china are quite right to point out every country has a right to run. satellites through. peaceful space exploration and freedom knowledge of satellite violates international norms begin it's not quite correct thirdly it's violating the united nations sanctions you know if you need the americans and then wait around there is a lot of tension around. and. old family doesn't really come from from beyond young young young years desperate to get an economic back and have
a decent sanction. they can read more about north korea's failed rocket launch from a web site r.t. got caught so that's what you think to also waiting there in the south getting a new low voice afghanistan is more on what than ever as an authority the american say wasn't worth the fight. taking from the poor british alone firms are leaving desperate boras with empty pockets forcing them to pay astronomically high interest rates. and raising the stakes a record breaking poker tournament is set to take place in vegas a jackpot of more than eighteen million dollars. syria's fragile ceasefire is under close watch for the u.n. security council considering a resolution to help in force it and boy kofi annan says forces in the country are not yet fully complied with the terms of the peace deal that is going into today
and has been looking at the latest u.n. draft. it calls for all parties in syria to immediately cease all armed violence in all its forms as a quote it would also authorize an initial deployment to syria of up to thirty on armed un observers to monitor the sites compliance with kofi annan six point plan will hurt the syrian envoy to the united nations say that syria is ready to accept the observers and that it's determined to stick to the plan in the meantime the russian ambassador to the u.n. reiterated that russia is very supportive of the plan and does everything it can to make sure the cease fire holds it's crucial for the monitors to be on the ground and to make sure that the new transgressions of the good of the got a state of the world and is going to be detected there's a lot of skepticism here in washington about kofi annan plan the u.s. accepted the plan but it almost designated it as doomed even before the plan had
a chance to work but so far it has worked violence has reportedly stopped the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice described it as quote a brief positive step obviously implying that the ceasefire is not going to hold and maybe not to miss rice that too many it's clear that the ball is now in the court of the syrian opposition the last thing we heard from them was that they were going to organize mass demonstrations but we didn't hear much about their plans on engaging in a dialogue with the government take a listen to what the russian ambassador had to say about that i'm very concerned that the news of sort of large gatherings of people the possibility of provocations will be greatly enhanced so instead of instead of. demonstrations opposition leaders must finally formulate their attitude was political dialogue so far the main point of diplomatic bickering over syria has been the one sided approach of the u.s. in a number of other countries that would could always sponsibility in the hands of
president assad and would never address the. opposition whereas russia's stance has been the same all the way and that is all parties must lay down their arms but with this resolution which appears more impartial which calls for dialogue and addresses all sides of the conflict one may argue there is finally hope for the much needed consensus in the international community that is of course if the resolution comes to pass then the chances are it will. but coming your way later in the program a true zing at national identity of a diversity france's far right gains ground in the presidential race is candidates running against a country whose. weight is nearly over wiki leaks whistleblower julian the sun is coming to own teen x. week he's in the show and will feature interviews with powerful people from around the world london correspondent who smith has more. the first episode of the show
will be broadcast on shoes day april seventeenth so that's this cheese day coming and we and julian together really hoping this is going to be an explosive new show i can't tell you the name of the first guest you'll have to yourselves to find that out on tuesday but i can tell you that they are all opinion formers some of them this isn't and some of them have never been interviewed before on english language television the first guest is particularly controversial and according to. the wake of the interview highly charismatic and find out what that's all about i met with him recently i went down to the secret location where he's been filming this show and i talked all about the show how he changed his guests why he decided to do it and of course he spent a lot of time sitting on the other side of the interview his desk and he told me a bit about his disenchantment really with the mainstream media and why he chose broadcast first this show let's hear from him. a lot of the things that we're
trying to report. accurately in the mainstream purse when we look. for. gently or not this week coming up the week in which the first show is going to be broadcast is really a week of anniversaries for him both personal and professional it's going to be five hundred days since the investigation into these allegations of sexual assaults by two swedish women began now we've seen that the requests for his extradition go through the courts here in the u.k. right up to the supreme court which case finished at the beginning of february that's ten weeks ago now and we still don't have it we are expecting it possibly to come next week but there's still no set date for that verdict to be handed down and still after five hundred days no charges have been laid against him it's also. today since the wiki leaks bank accounts were first phrase it so that has made
funding for wiki leaks very difficult and threatening that we're still playing organization altogether i really got what makes this program so unique the fact that it was conceived. while. living under house arrest here in britain awaiting this verdict on his extradition let's hear it from him about why he decided to become a t.v. host because two reasons first of all being on house arrest was sort of it's nice that happened a couple of them and a couple more about the world and the conversations we were having according to. the people what was going on that's one reason the second reason is that as someone who's given the one before it's been on the receiving end of a very aggressive. i found that i wasn't given much of a. pretty quickly. i think it's different from
some sort. of context that i want to have a different purpose. but approach has been so i think it's also succeeding and it's something that we're very sorry it's all very interesting. and not normal because. they're dealing with someone who's on the council. going from political problems. so you can see the full version of bats interview on monday the sixteenth of april and that'll be followed hot on the heels by the first episode of the program on tuesday the seventeenth of april there hasn't been anything yet he. used to get the maximum political. source material to use for help so he really.
we wanted to preserve. something. well still to come this hour the t.v. reporter and national risk estonia that lists one of our correspondents in the country has deemed a threat to the baltic states. why an unorthodox cathedral performance has the russian church in a spot of mr hysteria. the subject of immigration always stokes about his collection time seeing french far right presidential candidates showing their true colors their very strict reforms if elected as saucily reports there's a fear that i think you ring fencing fronts could prove permanent anti immigration and to euro antiglobalization and advocates of protectionism
all in the name of the french state and national identity. there is not a single french per cent not one european who does not know that i'm a sworn enemy of the european single currency buskers it's a radical islam as a direct consequence of mass immigration and that the left and the right imposed on us for decades no. traditionally on the fringes of france's national politics the rhetoric of today's far right may no longer be as far off for its citizens as it once was opinion polls suggest the presidential candidate marine le pen of the ultra right wing national front party is third with potentially ten million votes its biggest support base ever there is no party see off including richard friends. so we don't speak french thing when it doesn't bother anyone but. we don't want to look plaiting in so we don't want to have
a different communities that don't speak together of europe as an identity it's globalization destroyed this agency. enter the pen with your calls for economic patriotism or your ties in france over europe its native citizens over others of giving the french back their jobs prince efficient of the world to them and us globalization and quite frankly we wouldn't have this this anger and this is defiance if. if from. very high economic growth but in france because of sarkozy's past polices economic policies the gross doesn't exist so you have a lot of people who are saying king the presence of the of the immigrants and center right incumbent nicolas sarkozy stands accused of jumping on the far right bandwagon some say for the ballot sake. our integration system is getting
worse and worse why because we have too many foreigners in our territory threatening to withdraw from the shanghai or border from the agreement by no coincidence at a time when europe is seeing an influx of refugees fleeing conflicts in north africa and the middle east this is a. shift so we will have to see. what i'm going to do is. sarkozy knows pretty well that he was elected in two thousand and seven only because he was able to catch and vote as a nation of unknown the situation is quite the same some say that what was once a protest vote is now a more permanent part of the french political spectrum so it has long been the case that people vote for the national front as a protest against the others there is certainly a part of the electorate who vote for the reasons of dissent but i think it must
now be recognized even if it's difficult to accept that the vote for the national front is increasingly a vote of support. the increasing prominence are right with rhetoric in france especially the lead up to the presidential elections it's clear that what's more difficult to decipher is whether this grows support for the right reflects the direction of the russian side of values i stated or is simply a knee jerk reaction to everything the french see wrong in their country that's are so your r.t. paris. or some other international headlines for you now mali is back on the civilian rule interim president has taken over three weeks after a military coup now has forty days to organize elections on it seized power of what it saw as a previously this failure to tackle twenty separatists and is the most insurgents since declared independence from the north. troops who served under egypt's ousted president hosni mubarak are being banned from running for the top job
including any prime minister from the past ten years or so so scrap with the friends of from the vice president omar suleiman who revealed his surprise candidacy last week and you know first has to be approved by the ruling military council which took her last year. the u.n. is demanding an immediate end to fighting on sudan's southern border south of the south sudan and seize the town of having which is home to around half of sudan's oil production is a plea for forces to withdraw and the presidential summit to be held between the countries to resolve the conflict for icing along the border has escalated since else an ongoing and. nari. europe's most active volcano has unleashed another powerful eruption for the sixth time this year there is spewing lava and ash from a new crater on it so eastern slope it's not an official say the ash cloud is not yet causing problems for its nearest international airport. usually routes at least
twice a year. orthodox worshipers marking easter this coming weekend the church sure is a curfew reeling from the take on its face and the sonali reports on the scandals of the coach actually the scrambling of their reputation. leading up to the most celebrated russian orthodox holiday of the year the church found itself surrounded by scandal and in not so holy hot water. from girl ponders pussy riot who preach their anti putin protest in song christ the savior cathedral to the watch on the patriarch's wrist that was and then wasn't in official website photos the church has been in the spotlight for months and some think it's by no coincidence. are monitoring issues there's
a planned and active campaign against the church. patriarchy ariel's wristwatch with a price tag of some thirty thousand euros became the talk of the russian blogosphere over photos with the piece obviously brushed out in official pictures online of course some of the sensation is connected with the scandals ability to make news but someone is funny stories into the news for example the patcher arc has always had a watch photos have been on the website for years social media monitoring analysts find that on line activity on the church usually peaks around holidays like orthodox christmas in january but this year peaks continued throughout the spring and some not even during scandals but just after and before making sure the ball didn't drop and blogs tweets and spoofs kept flowing.
and someone starts consummately patriarchal be given expensive watches a gift it's all part of a campaign not so good for white people but rush upsidedown. but critics argue the church has become hysterical and oversensitive deeming all liberals anti church in attracting negative publicity including their harsh reaction to the punk protests. i agree with people who or whatever is seriously criticized. and. or criminal minister again before the. court unfortunately for the female rockers from pussy riot though it is they're now in detention for their stand awaiting trial they could see a maximum sentence of seven years in jail. apparently arms watch has long been
restored to photos and while pussy riot await their sentencing critters of the church continues but mark during experts who believe a lot of the bad p.r. is being deliberately exaggerated i also believe there's more came from and it's not going to start at the watch and he's there now r t nascar there are tears in this today as an official enemy of a stone near eastern europe correspondent has been tagged but a country's security agency and a list of people companies and nations considered to pose a real potential threats alexi are sure ski concentrates well in tone than is i think personal with him. that certainly is one impressive list along with r t r station and me personally on it it's also the russian foreign ministry the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov as well as several russian stations t.v. stations channel one and there were other stations surprisingly enough even the vice mayor of tile in who is known for his pro russian stance is also on the list
of a potential threat despite him being solely some kind of authority in the capital and also surprisingly enough there are also concepts not only the names but concepts and historical events on this list like the great patriotic war the kremlin and even the relocation of the monument of to the ground soldier big scandal in the story of several years back also on this list of potential and real dangers to the country this is not a surprise because this has happened before. one of my colleagues reported back then he was denied a visa when he was trying to fly to a story or to do a documentary about neo nazi ism and united in a country and later three years later into two thousand and ten one of our crews and was detained at the border of latina stonier for filming an anti-fascist rally their peaceful demonstration so this is not a surprising thing that a story of put us on the blacklist is just personally i'm surprised that they went
personal this time including me directly on the list i've been to stonier three or four times in the in the course of last three or four years and mostly film stories about how the those in power are actually doing the russian minority there the burning issue of glorifying with former nazi collaborators the economic issues the one issue the one case which may be the reason for a story in the thirty's to put me on the blacklist was when we were filming a story about how some of stone ians have been unhappy being part of the euro zone and how some of been speaking against being in the united. we are actually used to the fact that they used on an authority to have big. each of us to our team but this time the finance minister said that he would like to give us an interview we came to his office waited for more than an hour there and then suddenly his secretary said that he doesn't want to give you an interview i was so much insulted by that unprofessional approach and i tweeted about this fight furiously saying
that this is not the way things should work out when you're being denied an interview straight in the minister's office maybe that was the reason for the thought used to blacklist me and the station i don't know i just have to wait and see where that is any explanation for that but certainly it's very interesting to find my name on that list. time to check in with the business news now marina is waiting for us there it's now just one hour into the trading session for the russian markets good or bad so far. hi carol well first of all it's weird because it is friday the thirteenth but when it comes to the markets it's been a positive day and of course we expect there are some markets to do well because after the news that we got yesterday they can see the thing. and then my sense adding over a point two percent and yes they basically investors in have a chance to react to the news that russia would ease the tax burden on companies developing the countries are to think shelf the russian government is expected to
gain of five hundred dollars from investments over the next thirty years of course investors have been very optimistic after hearing those news all right let's move on and take a look at asia stocks that couldn't see again and that's our official data that came out today saying that china's economic growth group less than expected in the first quarter to eight point one percent that's compared to the previous year everyone expected it to be much more than that that's why we saw a rally on wall street yesterday but of course that disappointed and many investors still a positive trade insults in there in japan and exporters among those by the fed in the most haven't said that sony is losing. over four percent this hour after announcing that it will cost thousand jobs worldwide and in home poll we have property developers that are benefits and are out let's move on and so i can look at oil prices they are still declining and the us in fact expect them to decline even further next week because they speculate that they will be reduced over iran's
nuclear program as that negotiates with world powers and of course that's what spurred both through prices all along and if one second look at currencies the euro is still losing value against the dollar when it comes to the ruble it's now losing value against the greenback and the euro now in other stories we have another risk to the global financial system basically the international monetary fund says this time it's all they each it forecasts a life expectancy it will reach ninety years in developed nations by sea thousand one hundred and that will cost one hundred percent of the nation's g.d.p. in the next four years to support them the i.m.f. says the private sector will not be able to bag the burden and the retirement age will have to be raised also the whole of this movie studio in the world universal wants to build its first european and stayman park and most scope the project is worth around three billion dollars and such parts host twenty five million visitors a year in the u.s. where a single entry costs around eighty five dollars. and also we have another story
this time the owner of an adult site called perfect time dot com is syrian russia's top search engine decks you're about to see it there and that's not a violation of copyright for its nude photos it says illegally places ads near the photos and also passwords for the site's paid services could be found in neon that says search results perfect time dot com was and five million dollars compensation and earlier the site sued google amazon and microsoft for the same reasons god loves the suits. i don't think they'll be on our side and it's time soon but there you have the horses. thanks for that. my back coming up the people of l's cross-talk debates the conflict in syria i thought a recap of our top stories just a few statements.
in the. culture is that so much given to each musician trying to hide from the mark with a serious eerie silence at least for now at this moment be one sponsored peace plan for syria has gotten mixed reviews what happens. the close up team has been to the sverdlovsk region. where blacksmithing have developed from a craft into an industry. and now our team
