coffee and brokered cease fire has answered its fate they have made the arrival of the unit servers a lasting peace may now have the best chance in months still as these analysts points out the united is may need to learn from the experience of their arab league counterparts as mission in january failed to stop the bloodshed in the eyes of both the government and the opposition un mission is more professional more credible it will be made up of the observers of particular countries with their own agendas and their perceived neutrality or the lack of it could make or break the mission the rapid deployment of monitors is in the interest of the assad government and has argued is the only way to ensure the compliance of both sides the ceasefire now that they have servers are on the ground you know officials have made it clear they expect the syrian authorities to take further steps to uphold it we are worried about the operational deployment of heavy armor. population

12:04 pm
syria the un's also calling on the syrian government to show restraint on the opposition to fully cooperate with the truce but middle east experts say getting a positive reaction from the rebels could prove a problem the syrian government is responsible as a government to the united nations and international community. but on. command and. respect. ok. and any operation. that any operation has been made by. in this case has to. this is for the respective. the first day of the trial of soul can first norwegian killer and his brother
12:05 pm
exalted performer right salute smirk at survivors in court and we put his own propaganda video he admits killing seventy seven people in a bomb attack on a government building and a shooting rampage at a youth camp last summer but he denies criminality insisting it was self-defense to protect norway from muslims and sort of last have a guard is the president of the danish free press is society's joining us on the line now from copenhagen lars very good to see thanks for taking the time with us tonight this is getting such a lot of media attention of course hundreds of journalists not only from norway but around the world are covering graphics trial he's effectively getting what he wanted though isn't it a platform for his far right extremist ideas judging by what we saw today should this be a public trial do you think. well i think that is inevitable but i think to give a problem here. the question is is mr brady even sane enough to stand
12:06 pm
trial. as you may recall to psychiatry's from the way. well the regarded psychologists declared him insane legally insane in other words not a man you can you can convict in a court of law or call a man who belongs in an insane asylum. and the strange thing was then that the court decided to have a second opinion on this which is rather unusual and. beyond that even the prime minister of norway mr stoltenberg. came up and said that hugh he certainly would like it if if the if the court decided that he was sane it seems to me that in a in a country that respects the law in order you should first determine whether or not mr bray because even if it is crazy or saying enough to stand trial. and that's the problem i guess we're going to know more tomorrow or the ball the psychiatrist will
12:07 pm
the psychologist will know more tomorrow when he gives his statement it isn't going to be broadcast but if it will be able to be accessible in print is there a danger it might still end up in spying other attacks after hearing what he's got to say. i don't think so i frankly speaking can't think so i think this is a one off. i don't consider this my answer be to be. the saints head i mean you have to remember that the mr gravy. mr brady. declares himself the pete king secrets of the second you know the crusader was on which i'm king from the early twentieth century and now he claims to be his his successor he's also come up with all kinds of crazy ideas that seem to indicate that he is not well in his head so i don't think that people will emulate
12:08 pm
his actions when the bigger picture here scandinavia especially sweden or with pretty liberal countries. he claims he's attacked his way of protect protecting norway has been taken over by muslims so much attention is there in scandinavia over immigration is it a big problem. oh i think there's more tension that. people would like. and certainly more tension that is than is a growth factor by the media. it's somewhat subdued because in norway and sweden not so much in denmark people are increasingly afraid of talking about their fears and their fears for the future which is not a healthy situation it's far better that people can come out and say that i think this whole battle what can we do about immigration what can we do your part in suppression but that sort of debate seems to be subdued in norway and in sweden and
12:09 pm
that is unhealthy. so i would very much hope that people would loosen up and talk about real issues instead of instead of pretending they don't exist ok i think that was a much bigger program was that he got there president of the danish free press society could if he thought thanks for having coming up with r.t. how to take the spoils of the art to go a lot of the business of that how russia is because all for the american flags and more will be digging in the potential rich reserves of the sea got more on that coming in about ten minutes on. all the day's big stories next by the russian president's release to political prisoners one of which is a former presidential candidate alexander lukashenko isn't expected move follows pressure from the e.u. has been highly critical of the regime after a harsh crackdown on the opposition two years ago look serious rescue reports. q if any had expected such move from the man often described as europe's last dictator
12:10 pm
the leader of the bellows now former presidential candidate under the sun you can find his close counterpart. among a dozen opposition figures arrested in december twenty town following the presidential election accused of instigating massive street protests that was certainly a very serious crackdown on the opposition with all of those so so many people arrested and being sentenced to prison terms of the signing and sentenced to five and two years in prison respectively now both of them have been set free on a presidential pardon they have reconvened with their families and came out with statements saying that they could never believe that their plea to be set free would be met by sounded a little strangled now the political analysts in belarus are trying to determine the reasons behind this move while the other. political prisoners still remain in prisons in behind bars in brother was and their fate remains pretty much unclear at
12:11 pm
the moment this also being a reaction from the european union from the highest representative and international affairs and security catherine ashton who said that releasing these two prisoners is definitely a right move to improve relations between brussels and minsk and she demanded that the whole of the political prisoners must be set free as well definitely the chinese between brussels and means have been very much strains after the events and in december twentieth and the presidential election and the crackdown on the opposition in fact has a whole diplomatic missions to do the european union left immediately all twenty seven passengers then the european union imposed sanctions umbrella was namely more than two hundred state officials and businessmen are still brought here with it from traveling to the european union countries as well as several companies are blacklisted from trade with the european union there have been talks of tougher sanctions to come within the next several weeks so the possibility that the two.
12:12 pm
possible sanctions and the release of the prisoners are connected cannot be ruled out by many experts. let's hear jet ski reporting for us thousands of american filipino troops have begun annual military exercises need to speak to south china sea waters tension between the philippines and china has been escalating there for the past fortnight demonstrators gathered outside the american embassy in manila in protest of the war games taking university deputy principal junction in says the u.s. only has its own moves in mind in the region there are many filipino students and doctors concerned. working represent us playing a big brother role in politics and you know there are many things we're concerned becoming. you know national interest to us interests so i think that if these protests are a sign of a lot of discomfort with the traditional filipino over reliance upon the u.s. military not some american ships have gone back and forth over the pacific owned it
12:13 pm
and it's especially a treat i think a lot of it is inertia and the fact that for a long time america has been running this as a fish and now it's not so used to go. to other powers but i think for the future of world peace i think in the future america will need to start negotiating we try to create a framework to share it. trying to see we invite you to explore stories deeper online at r.t. dot com couple stories online tonight amongst the very many we thought you might be interested in an israeli soldier throws a knockout punch with his right for the day of it's fun i want to pull this about and catch up with more footage of our teeth. also north korea keeps one of these alleged nuclear program but celebrates the seventeen year of its first leaders of the earth with a bang as we take a picture as this is the sparks fly on our web site.
12:14 pm

12:16 pm
getting into bed with him from you know the kremlin and. interviewing. terrible radicals or whatever but i think that's the sort of it's a pretty trivial kind of attack on character when you were choosing the guests what were your criteria. for the single biggest criterion since they would come up short so those are. people who normally don't get what it was could any of think yes that you have got do you think a pair on a mainstream t.v. network some could some couldn't and some have. quite a few haven't. what is fair to say is that the majority of what they have said to me could not say well the mainstream thinking at work that is not is because of substance of the networks and because my style of interaction as someone who has been interviewed by the media many many times i understand the
12:17 pm
thoughts. in that format and so i wanted something but. the thought of the depth of misinformation that they had so a way of. pulling out their story about this situation from their own perspective from up to something that would be it's not for me it's not worth. dealing with me . i understand that they're not dealing with. you and with somebody who's very high. with your situation so they can speak to a degree i think because they are. true and. it's true which it. says he's talking as for. the united states. illegally. hundred days

12:22 pm
their military but that seems to have had no in fact on washington's decision to keep going with business as usual with the injured business as usual ceased to be a reality almost a decade ago unfortunately our leadership in the white house and in the state department have not caught up with that reality the new reality is it is not business as usual we are not buying loyalty but not even the egyptian military's loyalty may be enough to secure business as usual between washington and cairo the muslim brotherhood is the ruling power in egypt's parliament now and their candidate could well when presidential election in may the brotherhood has declared israel america's closest ally in the region enemy number one we will not be able to afford and put in jail for example on the borders of egypt that is not acceptable by the egyptian people but most recently

a delegation from the muslim brotherhood has made a trip to washington and flip flopped on some of their harsh statements this time the brotherhood lawmakers said they were not planning on breaking the peace agreement with israel signed at the end of the nineteen seventies in light of the mixed messages that keep changing daily some wonder whether there is any guarantee that egyptian military power bolstered by u.s. taxpayer dollars and weapons. will not one day get israel the fact that they have to send the go delegation. washington shows you that what they are trying to hide is not very charming we're talking about american taxpayer dollars being used to fund what may well be a government in egypt which is vitriolically america washington seems to be holding on to the old policy of offering egyptian leaders incentives in exchange for favors
12:24 pm

12:25 pm
of course very difficult to do this kind of extraction and russia lacks the know how so for a long time it was looking for a barge that then again it had to leave the a bride at the old stuff when it comes to the deal between rosneft and b.p. its previous partner because of legal legal boundaries and so it's a legal conditions when they came to understand that basically is agreement with b.p. was contradicting already existing agreements with t n a b and third the third factor involved is opposed the amount of money and investment which is required in these a very difficult project yes sounds complicated indeed miter how much money are we talking about. well initially this investment is valued at around three point two billion dollars now both companies admit that this could go up ten fold to tens of billions of dollars of investment but in the end of course russia needed to provide
