6:01 am
just a moment to find out what's the world's most wanted whistleblower has in store. and thanks for joining our to you this friday i'm karen tara despite warnings that it was defining international long north korea launched its controversial long range rocket early on friday but within moments and plummeted into the sea it's still the u.n. security council although russians pushing for diplomacy are just peter all over is across developments peter what's behind moscow stance given that north korea has violated several u.n. resolutions with a single rocket launch. well the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov has been speaking alongside his chinese and indian counterparts to be holding a meeting here in moscow. meeting dominated by the fallout from this failed rocket
6:02 am
launch coming out of north korea. expressed russia's regret that the launch should take in place but said. it was concerned putting more sanctions on north korea would be nice to any good when it came to stopping these type of launches taking place perhaps in the future you know those sentiments were sparked by the chinese foreign minister saying that china was opposed to any form of sanctions further sanctions being placed appalled yeah and now this goes against the sentiments we're hearing coming out of countries like the united states south korea and japan those three nations have expressed their concern deep concern this rocket launch in fact saying that it wasn't the rocket trying to put a satellite into space is the north koreans had said that it wasn't a cover for a test a long range intercontinental ballistic missile something which north korea is
6:03 am
prohibited from trying to carry out now it's expected that those three countries that they mentioned the united states south korea and japan may try to call for further sanctions something that russia of not. saying the pull was the only way to try and find a solution. we convinced the challenges and found it must be met with purely political and diplomatic means we're calling on all sides consumers to be restrained. and committed to the resumption of the six party talks format has no alternatives in the situation on the korean peninsula. peter how much of a concern is the north korean nuclear program to the international community. well this program's been a long headache for the u.n. and the international community as a as a holdout they attempted a similar rocket test thousand and nine which also resulted in failure the
6:04 am
difference with this one is that north korean t.v. would reporting that this would be to failure the previous rocket test it being. put into a success all those korean television now that the u.s. is saying that north korea is of going back on the promises that were made earlier this year they said that they wouldn't test any further rockets in exchange for food aid. they suppose washington becomes and they've gone back on that promise not aid but where will be suspended now. also reports coming out of south korea the north could be preparing a you know the nuclear test now this would be the third time that they've conducted such a test say these reports coming out of seoul over the past few days now all of this has been going on for quite a while now the u.n. has been involved in several resolutions have been on the table regarding north korea's nuclear program but all of this is happening against the backdrop of the united states beefing up their presence in the asia pacific region now the reasons
6:05 am
for this that have been given from d.c. is that the united states wants to move their focus away from military focus away from the middle east and towards the asia pacific region to try and keep an eye on nations like china and like iran all right artie's peter all of her life from moscow. a lot to china now to get her faults our associate professor jacksie from the chinese university of hong kong. professor still at hello there is an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council today over the launch what kind of response can we expect. but all of. those difference countries would have different responses for this would be a negotiation you know the russian and chinese probably being so you know approaches. the us you know other members probably want to be
6:06 am
taking a proper position on these. old persisting q but you're more on the two sides will come to new. given the nature of. also the nature of this launch there will be you know more country new standoff i would expect that russia is against any new sanctions on north korea while china says a further escalation on the korean peninsula must be avoided well pyongyang do anything to diffuse the situation and if so what should that. be because to. the behavior of. the states given the new leadership. outsiders you know including. china are painted into. concrete steps that can be observed like the launch
6:07 am
or so. people need to gather more information. we're being. a political circles. well the united states south korea and others to see the launch as a cover for a ballistic missile test ban young insists it was a satellite launch how could it be verified what it actually was. i'm not a expert in weaponry. but from the. news i can see here in hong kong it really sounds already like. the u.s. side hoping no prove. this launch being released because people rather than the lawn. well some might see the launch as a failure as we can us north korea out there miss out program so is the country really as big or as a threat as it's made out to be. but i don't think so i don't
6:08 am
really know so powerful and it's already showing but it is only one a sign of weakness so it is essential for the international community not you all respond or something probably is not so much perceived threats now professor see the north korea went ahead with the launch despite realizing there would be consequences why do you think that is. well north korea has a track record for breaking so this is not completely new we are observing and with this new leadership it needs to establish more slowly there if you will emerge country. ok the room and of course the house hundreds of members. of the previous leader so there are these multiple reasons. but there again i want
6:09 am
to emphasize the international community should not hold or react to all right and finally i would just like to know do you think north korea is really ever going to give up its atomic andersen's with the global press are showing no sign of abating . well. what we. approach is taken by international because. of the chinese and you know we're western or south korea or germany. you know to bring north here into the. predictable range so what the international community would need to do is to. you know have more creative solutions and finding out things those within north korea to be persuasive rather than just using pressure. you know means you saw this problem which did not work without it and it will not work in the future all right jack see you associate professor at the school of journalism
6:10 am
and communication chinese university of hong kong thank you thank you you can read more about north korea's failed rocket launch on our website r.t. dot com and tell us what you think too also waiting there for you. taking from the poor the brightest loan firms seizing on desperate borrowers forcing them to pay astronomically high interest rates and. i just have to wait and see whether there's any explanation for that but certainly it's very interesting to find my name on that list our correspondent discovers that is donia as labeled him a threat to the country he tells us who else is including. syria cease fire is under close watch with the u.n. security council considering a resolution to help enforce it envoy kofi annan says forces in the country have not yet fully complied with the complied rather with the terms of the peace deal as
6:11 am
reports emerge of clashes near the turkish border parties going education 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.
6:12 am
accept if the plan but it's almost a 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 this described it as quote a briefing a 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 but i'm very concerned that increase 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 towards political dialogue so far the main point of diplomatic big kringle with syria has been the one sided approach of the
6:13 am
us in a number of other countries and i would put all responsibility in the hands of president assad and would never address. opposition whereas russia 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 with president assad's reforms being inactive and parliamentary elections due in may syrians hope the un backed ceasefire will help make change a reality as oksana boyko reports from the country's capital. damascus greeted the ceasefire with a sunny day and high spirits residents took to the parks rather than streets and sprinklers not bullets all that needed dodging yeah this picture perfect morning
6:14 am
was laden with fear and uncertainty as them a scenes anxiously awaited news from the north but i am for. now is for the cease fire and tools long haul do want the streets without fear and could leave at least one day without hearing that somebody was killed. that's what wasn't the case in the rest of the country on thursday proceedings were rocked by three blasts that killed and injured twenty five harsh though that is a country that has grown accustomed to a daily death toll exceeding a hundred given that could be seen as a step forward one hundred of them everyone here it was a religion or politics once one thing for syria. and the capitals all bizarre business is slow but the locals are pressed for money and tourists are few and far between the centuries trade was syria's best antidote to six area and all religious conflicts but it's politics that draw a wedge between syria and communities and relieved to have the you know here in
6:15 am
syria. like. everyone in the mosque. and. the here is the dam a scene stories that once held syria to war there are european crusaders some peer that syria may become the target of yet another one in day western conquest it was again seek to impose its values this time it twenty first century wrap rance. bludgeoned of the infallible demisting thoughts isn't part of his plans for for syrians seeing themselves as a nation of great warriors who value boller above everything else. revolutionary violence three in the country one more theories are far more eager to thrive in the other part of our cultural heritage but those of a peace loving caring nation. it is true that syria doesn't have
6:16 am
a long record of political pluralism the name rallying cry of the opposition but there are efforts to change the. nine political parties for a graduate student in recent months some of them openly seeking to challenge the dominance of the ba'ath party. we used to have three taboos religion sex and politics at least we can talk about politics now that there is a member of the party of supporters it can be only fourteen hundred people so far they're still figuring out the details of their political agenda but the first says he's pretty certain of the means it will not use to achieve it. but it's true there would be 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 in politics is unacceptable politics is about compromising with your rivals and you can't do that while shooting many here say
6:17 am
that if there is any force that can unite syrians these these is the opposition the opposition to war. are it's the damascus syria. coming or well later in the program choosing national identity over the city france's far right gains ground in the presidential race as candidates rally against multiculturalism . and the wait is nearly over where he leaks whistleblower julian a song is coming to our team next week his unique show will feature interviews with powerful people from around the world our london correspondent laura smith has more . the first episode of the show will be broadcast on tuesday april seventeenth so that this cheese day coming and we are doing together 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 nine yourself to find that out on shoes day but i can tell you that they are all formers some of them this is and some of them have never been
6:18 am
interviewed before on english language television the first guest is particularly controversial and according to 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 this 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 to broadcast first this show for you to record your being. in the race for a purse. that was. brought to your currents gently or not this week coming up the week in which the first show is going to be broadcast is really a week of anniversary for him both personal and professional it's going to be five
6:19 am
hundred days since the investigation into these allegations of sexual assault by two swedish women began now we've seen that at the request for his extradition go through the courts here in the u.k. right up to the supremes courts which in that case finished at the beginning of february that's ten weeks ago now we still don't have a hit 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 five hundred days since the wiki leaks bank accounts were first frozen. so that has made funding for wiki leaks very difficult and threatening that whistle blowing organization altogether i really got so what makes this program so unique the fact that it was conceived. while our soldiers virtually living under house arrest here in britain awaiting this verdict on his extradition because two reasons first of all being on the house was for some of the
6:20 am
interests that happen occasionally that are going to learn more about the world and the conversations we were having a quite interesting. for other people going oh that's one reason the second reason is that someone who's given a lot of this before and has been receiving it or very aggressive. when i felt i wasn't getting much more. pretty quickly. it was. sort of for instance for. people to take the context that i want to have a different approach with people. why that approach has been to people who can summarize i think it's also it's excellent work very very. very interesting and important for them all of them are going to be because they're interviewing with mr flynt you meet with someone who was under house arrest. record for political
6:21 am
problems. so you can see the full version of that interview on monday the sixteenth of april and that will be followed hot on the hills by the first episodes of the program on tuesday the seventeenth of april we're still awaiting the verdict hundred innocent 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 yet on the t.v. . series to get the maximum political impact. for the source material is for helps to keep your wits and we. we want to present. something.
6:22 am
you're just joining our team it's twenty one minutes past the hour and the subject of immigration always stokes voters come election time and it's seeing french far right presidential candidates show their true colors they're vowing struggle for strict reforms if elected and us tests are similar reports there's a fear that ethnically ring fencing france could prove permanent anti immigration and to euro anti globalization and advocates of protectionism all in the name of the french state and national identity. there is not a single french person not one european who does not know that i am a sworn enemy of the european single currency busters it's a radical islam as a jew right consequence of mass immigration and that's the left and the right imposed on us for decades is not know. traditionally on the fringes of france's national politics the rhetoric of today's far right may no longer be as
6:23 am
far off for its citizens as it once was opinion polls suggest 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 potency often think griffen friends. so if you don't speak french. it doesn't bother anyone but. we don't want. to play king lin so we. have different communities but don't speak together europe as a night until. it's globalization destroyed inside and. enter liban with her calls for economic patriotism prioritizing france over europe its native citizens over others of giving the french back their jobs. and center right incumbent nicolas sarkozy stands accused of jumping on the far right bandwagon some say for
6:24 am
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 shang and 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. clift so we have to see the thing israel in the us. knows pretty well is that he was elected in two thousand and seven only because he was able to catch. us on a cell phone and know the situation is quite a state some say that what was once a protest vote is now a more permanent part of the french political spectrum so pointed out there is certainly a part of the electorate who vote for the reasons of dissent but i think it must now be recognized in if it's difficult to accept that the vote for the national
6:25 am
front is increasingly a vote of support. we increasing problem it's a right with rhetoric in france especially the lead up to the presidential elections is clear all its more difficult to decipher is whether this growing support for the right reflects the direction that from his side of values has stated or is simply a knee jerk reaction to everything the french see wrong in their country just are so your r t paris now to some other news making headlines around the world mali is under civilian raul and interim president has taken over three weeks after a military coup he now has forty days to organize elections the army sees power over what it saw as the previous leader's failure to tackle torak separatists as enormous insurgents who have since declared independence for the north. officials who served under egypt's else president hosni mubarak are being banned from running for the top job including any prime minister from the past ten years it's also
