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 thinking you know demonstrations users must finally formulate their attitude towards political dialogue so far the main point of diplomatic big kring 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 as 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 and the chances are it will. but with the present us

first says he's pretty certain of the means it will not use to achieve it. it's true that the regime has a long way to go to make her political system more inclusive but we also have to agree that using any kind of violence and politics is unacceptable politics is about compromising with your rivals and you can't do that while shooting many here is saying that if there is any force that can unite syrians these these is the opposition the opposition to war it's not going to artsy damascus syria. we have more news in thirty years twenty four hours a day at r.t. dot com waiting there for you right now hitting a new low one afghanistan is more on topic than ever thought of america and say it wasn't the right. taking from the poor british. leaving desperate for it was with empty pockets piercing them to pay astronomically

national identity over diversity france's far right against ground in the presidential race as for this rally against affinity. for. the wait is nearly over wiki leaks a whistleblower sunday is coming to our team next week is unique so well for instance of these are powerful people from around the world well london correspondents or smith has more on this. 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 are really hoping this is going to be an exclusive new show i can't tell you the name of the first guest you'll have to chew name yourselves to find that out on choose 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
4:11 am
julian in 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 the show and i talked all about the show how he chose 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 r.t. to broadcast first this show me trying to report not prepared. in the race when we will. work. out of the. current century or not this week coming up for the week in which the first show is going to be broadcast is really a week of round of verse three for him both personal and professional it's going to be five hundred days since the investigation into these allegations of sexual assault by two swedish women. now we've seen that the requests for his extradition
4:12 am
go through the courts here in the u.k. talk to the supremes courts which case finished at the beginning of february that's ten weeks ago now we still don't have a we are expecting it possibly to call 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 five hundred days since the wiki leaks bank accounts were first for. so that has made funding for wiki leaks very difficult and threatening that whistle blowing organization all together and really that's what makes this program so unique the fact that it was conceived of thought of while i saw it was virtually living under house arrest here in britain awaiting this verdict on his extradition there's two reasons first of all being under house arrest was sort of on it's nice to happen because of a little. more about the world i mean given the conversations we were having
4:13 am
according to him for about one month for other people what was going on that's one reason the second reason is that as someone who's given a lot of interviews before and has been on the receiving end of a very aggressive it was when i found that i wasn't getting much work. but pretty quickly. he just keeps sort of three points for instance so people can take the context that i want to have a different sort of corporate people. why that approach has been difficult and sometimes i think you can sort succeed you can't. really be sorry it's all very interesting and important people are not going to go because they're not dealing with. dealing with someone who's under house arrest. and corporate political programs that break and so you can see the full version of that interview on monday
4:14 am
the sixteenth of april and that will be followed hot on the heels by the first episode of the program on shoes day the seventeenth of april we're still awaiting a verdict on julian assange just extradition but we are quite glad that he's managed to make this program before whatever happens to him happens to him obviously his main fear has always been that he will be extradited from sweden to the u.s. . there hasn't been anything good on t.v. . it is to get the maximum political impact of this. before the source material is what helps keep journalism real. we want to present. something up. so to come this hour they are to report and how they build a national risk here blacklists one of our correspondents the country has deemed

for decades is an ethno. 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 an opinion poll suggests that 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 police here from france so if french. doesn't bother anyone but. we don't want to play klingon so we will. have different communities but don't speak together of. ours and i don't think it's liberalization destroyed deciding to. enter lipin with her calls for economic patriotism prioritizing france over europe its native citizens over others of giving the
4:17 am
french back their jobs. 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 you know territory threatening to withdraw from the show and get border free 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 break electoral shift so we will have to see anything. we do has. sarkozy knows pretty well is that he was elected in two thousand and seven only because he was able to catch it as a national front and you know 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. there is certainly
4:18 am
a part of the electorate who vote for the reasons of dissent but i think it must now be recognised even if it's difficult to accept that the vote for the national front is increasingly a vote of support for the increasing prominence of right wing rhetoric in france especially the lead up to the presidential elections it's clear what's more difficult to decipher is whether this grows support for the right reflects the direction the fratricidal values has taken or is simply a knee jerk reaction to everything the french see wrong in their country. that's are so you artsy paris that some other news making headlines around the world mali is back on the civilian rule interim president has taken over three weeks after a military coup in us forty days to organize elections the army seize power of what it's all as the previous need is failure to tackle tarik secretary and this instance surgeons have since declared independence from the. officials who served

4:20 am
a move on the damaging destruction. 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. coming here. from girl parker's pussy riot who preached there and he put in protest in song at christ the savior cathedral to the watch on the patriarchs 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 probably no coincidence. or monitoring issues there's a planned and active campaign against the church. patriarch curious wristwatch with a price tag of some thirty thousand euros became the talk of the russian blogosphere over photos but the piece obviously brushed out in official clicks years online but of course some of the sensation is connected with the scandals
4:21 am
ability to make news but someone's family stories into the news for example the charge has always had a watch photos have been on the website for years social media monitoring analysts find that online activity on the church usually peaks around holidays like orthodox christmas in january but this year peace 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. out of or when someone starts currency patriarch complicated and expensive watches or kids' it's all part of a campaign not save the poor windy but to send russia upside down. but critics argue the church has become hysterical and oversensitive deeming all liberals anti

church in attracting negative publicity. feeding your harsh reaction to the punk protests. by green wish people who. criticize their behavior. are. not. criminal investigation for. corp and fortunately for the female rappers from pussy riot it is their new in detention for their stunt awaiting trial they could see a maximum sentence of seven years in jail. the patriarch's watch has long been restored to photos and while pussy riot await their sentencing criticism of the charge contain years but monitoring experts who believe a lot of the bad p.r. is being deliberately exaggerated i also believe there's more we're right came from and it's not going to stop at the watch and he's there now r t moscow. but
4:23 am
r.t. is being listed as an official enemy of a stone you're used to your correspondent has been tapped by the country's security agency list of people companies and they sions considered to pose a real potential threat. he contemplates on its own and is i think personally. 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 and 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 so in some kind of authority in capitol 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 off to the bronze soldier big scandal in the story
4:24 am
as several years back also on this list of potential and real dangers to the country this is well 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 to do a documentary about neo nazi ism and you're not in the country and three years later into two thousand and ten one of our crews and was detained at the border of latina stonier for filming and i thought i just rally their peaceful demonstration so this is not a surprising thing that a story of puts us on a blacklist is just personally i'm surprised that i'm that they went personal this time and calling 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 treating the russian minority there the burning issue of glorifying the former nazi collaborators the economic issues the one issue the one
4:25 am
case which may be the reason for story and authorities to put me on the blacklist is 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 the united. we are actually used to the fact that the authorities have been. interviews to r.t. 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 fact 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 story authorities to blacklist me and the station i don't know i just have to wait and see whether there's any explanation for that but certainly it's very interesting to
4:26 am
find my name on that list. time to check out the business headlines and marinus for the markets hi there european investors join the trading session not to missed it today. hi carol well there are no actually and what's interesting is that they are reactance who disappoints in growth in china but asian markets have been doing really well so they're feeling fine despite all this but european investors not so much just take a look at the latest figures if they can bring them up here for us ok there we go both at once the and the dogs are losing with attacks going almost half a percent lower and five drug and software side theirs are leading the decline but the picture should be clear we'll see if there is even further the stakes are let's move on to asia as i said both the nikkei and the hang seng are going to higher and that despite the fact that official data suggest that china's china's economic growth slowed more than expected to eight point one percent in the first quarter of two thousand and twelve that's of course compared to the year before the same
4:27 am
period now when it comes to japan and we have exporters that are leading the gaze and haven't said that sony is losing almost five percent the south that's after announcing that it has stopped ten thousand jobs worldwide when it comes to hong kong we have property developers there particularly well well if we move on to russia here so far it's suppose it's worth trading session where we can see that both you know it's yes and then my stocks are adding more than point supercenter and point and that's what i'm looking at here is that russia has promised to ease the tide sport and on companies the developing countries arctic shelf in the russian government has said that it's hoping to gain over thought of one hundred billion dollars in investment over the next thirty years ok let's take a look at crude prices there are still going down and right and it's not saying that we could see further declines next week because they expect that potential will be reduced from iran and world powers discussing its nuclear program and of course that's what's been bolstering oil prices in the last couple of weeks now if
4:28 am
you take a look at currencies it's still a similar picture that we can see the euro is amusin rally against the dollar when it comes to the ruble it's losing against both between five and. i think you're off now in other news there's yet another risk for a financial crisis in the system the international monetary fund says this time it's a what page and forecasts a life expectancy will reach ninety years in developed nations by two thousand one hundred that it will cost one hundred percent of the nation's g.d.p. in the next forty years to support them the i.m.f. says the private sector will not be able to bear the burden and the retirement age what have to be raised. i want to hold we're going to be when it's time for us to retire i carry i don't feel like they're going to keep raising that i'm raising that i'm going to be a hundred and still works. in many thanks for that. well stay with us for the sports news but first our must go out program right after.
