5:02 am
a resolution friday because according to russia's position the u.s. first drafted resolution made many demands of the syrian government and no explicit demands of the syrian opposition the russian ambassador. vitaly churkin said at this critical junction is very very important for all syrian parties including the arm opposition to comply with the six point peace plan that was laid out by u.n. special envoy kofi annan on this of course also calls for an immediate cease fire and for an inclusive political process in syria in which the opposition groups and the syrian government engage in dialogue with the russian ambassador said that moscow from the very beginning has been supportive of mr are not peace plan it is only he said through an objective balanced approach that the security council was able to reach a consensus on saturday with. russia on the number. of
5:03 am
members draft resolution has been significantly changed it became more balanced instance which sees more. interest. in syria's government it will be an. observer mission according to this resolution the un secretary-general ban ki moon will have to report back to the security council on april nineteenth regarding how the resolution is being implemented whether the observers are being granted access throughout says. by the humanitarian officials are being granted access throughout syria if the syrian authorities and the syrian opposition is complying with what the security council's this monitoring mission will eventually grow to a team of two hundred fifty people we should note though that it does say in this resolution that has some there is a vague reference that if syria does not comply with what this a curate council is asking further measures can be taken and what those further
5:04 am
measures are is not clear again i think at this point all security council members are hoping that the armed opposition group and the syrian government do comply with what's being asked and peace is finally established in syria. when they bring in turkey accused syria of conducting across border raid this week the retaliation if it happens again the country is also having to hunt for the growing influx of syrian refugees the middle east expert enson the use that it was a policy towards young reckons it's really fueling the conference. turkey a big part of the nato coalition of countries is basically playing an interesting only role sense of the situation turkey's very skillfully and quietly stayed in the background of this conversation but actually turkey has been allowing free syrian army and al-qaeda soldiers to come over the syrian border have safe haven within their country now this is going to be
5:05 am
a problem if you're looking at any sort of binding agreements for as a peace plan or anything like that is turkey can't be allowed to do that they've been hosting the free syrian army in their country since october and so let's get real here turkey is a nato country they've been actively involved in helping provide a base for this insurgency to come over the border it's an absolute free for all in terms of geopolitics so women to think that turkey is somehow a respectable player in this in this story which i think the spotlight needs a couple of turkey and fast if we're going to see the situation stabilize and syria shortly in the program the whistleblower tends inquisitor that's ten days from now controversial leaks about the song yes he's going to show you know week ahead. also the game changer for spain's football clubs sinking in debt some tough stuff you want to make. now ten of the twenty three candidates who want to run for

5:09 am
choose day 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 julian in the wake of the interview highly charismatic so you can find out what that's all about i met with him recently 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 as 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 the themes that we're trying to report not being heard . in the race for the purse when we look at what works. for the. 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 anniversaries 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 began now we've seen that 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 budget 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 was supplying organization altogether and really that's what makes this program so unique the fact that it was conceived while a soldier was virtually living under house arrest here in britain awaiting this verdict on his extradition there's two reasons first of all being on house arrest
5:11 am
the sort of more it's nice to have a look a little. calmer and more about the world and the conversations we were having a party just. for the people what was going on that's one reason the second reason is that as someone who's given a lot of this before and this you know the receiving end of a very aggressive struggles i felt that i wasn't giving much away. pretty quickly. he just keeps you know sort of a difference in response so people don't take it out of context and i want to have a different sort of proportion of people and why that approach has been difficult and sometimes i think it was also succeeded in something that we really sides or very interesting people and not normal because they're not dealing with. the human was sort of was under house arrest. of course for political problems. so you
5:12 am
can see the full version of that interview on monday the sixteenth of april and that will be followed hot on the heels by the first episode of the program on tuesday the seventeenth of april we're still awaiting the verdict on julian assange as 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 easy here he. is to get the maximum political. sources. it's what helps the journalism. we want to preserve. something.
