the u.n. security council voted to send three hundred observers to syria russia balls nations not to undermine the mission after they do or says only pressure on their side regime will work. the presidential election is just hours away in straw and says voters have to make a tough choice at a time of growing social divisions and economic crisis. and energy hungry china wants to secure a slice of the arctic and its untapped mineral resources with the chinese premier of that small ignored. international news life from moscow this is us he was new year's thanks for joining
us from the u.n. security council has unanimously voted on a resolution to send hundreds of observers to syria moscow says it will help promote the u.n. by a ceasefire agreement with multiple reports of the trees being violated by both sides are in a fortnight has more from new york. once again the united nations security council has unanimously adopted a resolution on syria the most recent one drafted by russia and co-sponsored by eight other countries the resolution calls for and authorizes up to three hundred unarmed u.n. military observers to go to syria and monitor the truce the cease fire that was put in place april twelfth between damascus and the opposition groups this resolution also calls on the syrian government to meet its responsibilities and pledges calls for is the six point peace plan laid out by u.n. joint envoy mr kofi i non russian of course believes that this most recent
development in syria is a step in the right direction but it is a good resolution isn't fundamentally decent in syria in showings of consensus rebuilding kofi annan six peace the main goal should be to comply with the resolution any deviation in terms of be interpretation of the mandate is an example libyan model she's remain in the. in the meantime u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice left the meeting on saturday not showing as much optimism as. many other countries had susan rice took to her twitter feed to say the deployment of three hundred or three thousand unarmed observers cannot on its own stop assad's quote murderous rampage susan rice said external pressures are additionally needed to solve the problem in syria
the us ambassador also said that washington and its allies are preparing for action that will be required if assad persists to quote slaughter clearly this is. is undermining in many ways the effort that is in the nie from inside the security council to support the six point peace plan that was laid out by mr kofi i'm not pastor chirk it said that these efforts that are trying to put pressure on an already stressful situation does not help bring peace and security to syria drabble some to me in the statement which was made by ambassador rice on by some colleagues from the west european countries even though they supported this russian draft on the front of this resolution is that they missed an opportunity to send a signal to the opposition they kept criticizing the government saying nothing about what they expect the for another position which is in fact outlined very
clearly in the security council resolution which they themselves had just voted for and all those provisions of a boom and threats of that is which are being hatched this hour with those things are not productive i think they are distracting from much from the implementation of a coffin on throughout and from the political efforts of the security council and they may give a ground for some extremists to believe that their cause is a still has prospect for for taking over the political process which we are trying to assist that was they can see to so. even though the security council voted unanimously today we know that the some members of the security council some important members of the international community. still considered to think income from patient their own stores a the syrian government and that's richardson says the syrian government will be
primarily responsible for the safety and security of the u.n. unarmed observers that will be deployed to syria they will be deployed once the u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon feels that it's safe enough for the. observers to girl and there has been enough to say shit of violence this resolution the most recent one adopted also i can score is that the syrian government and the opposition group both have to put their weapons out weapons down and begin engaging in dialogue. glades very political analysts from the u.k. told us earlier that peace after syria are being undermined by western players who keep mounting pressure on their side regime to look at what the original strategy was the original plan was to basically roll out the same strategy as was employed in libya on the syrian people and so to that end they fermented a civil war they were successful in that using their proxy forces using libyan
militants that they shipped in across the turkish border using people trained in lebanon and turkey and successfully managed to foment some kind of insurgency civil war situation there's a battle within western strategic kind of planners at the moment about how which way they're going to play this mission became very difficult for anyone to have any faith that these proxy forces i don't could actually have any hope of taking power and therefore the kind of idea of regime change the most realistic alternative is now seen as is not really feasible if in less outside intervention comes into play so there's still keen to promote this idea that they may conduct some kind of aerial bombardment some kind of mass slaughter to help their proxies on the ground in order to keep this civil war going. people are one growing free will not be disrupted by protests in bahrain that's according to country's officials this count as unrest intensified on saturday after an accident stores killed in overnight
clashes with security forces its reporters that's up to much freighters were also beaten by riot police ahead of a controversial bahrain motor race i was a weekend tens of thousands took part in anti rushing protests to coincide with the grand prix patrick having some journalists and some of the twenty first century why explains why it things there's been no condemnation from the west. bahrain is one of the. monarchies in the middle east they've had a change of change of leadership recently as you can see it hasn't changed we've seen reports of violence coming out of bahrain after the other for the last year or two years the it's not uncommon the police will drive by shootings of people in bahrain you can watch these videos on you tube if you want it's the worst police states a region. i don't think so if we were going to see reform in bahrain it would have come after the recent change of leadership. under the umbrella of the western
nations in terms of influence in the region the rain is a satellite of the kingdom of saudi arabia and also into this satellite state of the region of washington and london we have incredible vested interest there in terms of petroleum contracts etc and also it's just it's a strategic defense position as well. the moment of truth is looming for french presidential hopefuls as the election is due to start in just hours meanwhile citizens afraid of the seas territories have already cast their ballots along with those voting in embassies abroad ten candidates are competing in may so we can see the first round with opinion polls showing socialist francois hollande putting slightly ahead of the company's conservative president sneakily. if none of the houses when there's more than fifty percent a second divide it will take place a week later and a runoff between the top two senior has known the current. one in four voters
still haven't made up their talk of the french people jobs and money in their pockets especially at a time when unemployment is around ten percent hitting an all time high that's about three million people unemployed so who can take the top job and sold the french people's problems to the latest poll socialist party. believe with about twenty nine percent of the total votes almost want to target the top income earners of the country but he is criticised for this widely perceived lack of experience i truly want to foster a lot is income that you can see he's a deeply unpopular president and one recent poll you would declare with him the most unpopular president of fresh history and his presidency is that marred with one economic crisis after another in the last weeks of campaigning he's turned to more radical rhetoric of just clamping down on immigration putting got some birds out or talking tough when it comes to security matters especially after the incident has also taken on
a more confrontational tone towards the european union proposing that france freeze its budget contribution to the e.u. budget currently a third place according to the polls is most of the national front party she has been sticking to it and to immigration platform vowing to cut down the number of legal immigrants to ten thousand a year that's down from about one hundred eighty thousand at the moment and she has also said that she wants for the euro and go back to the french currency the french frank what's being called the big surprise of this french presidential campaign is the middle of the left now his numbers have doubled since january from about sixty seven percent to fourteen percent now he is mincing no words in this talking about a civic insurrection a revolution he did now also as the financial sector and he also was sharp as the e.u. . this cool part. he wants to withdraw from nato he's taking on a very strong hard line approach will these are the top four contenders while you for the top job based on the rhetoric they've been using of their campaign france's
european neighbors as well as other partners understand that no matter who takes on the presidency there would be disruptions to what a form of continually baby expect it's just a matter of to what extent these changes will impact the relationships as far as french people are concerned we have a few more hours left to make that choice so we'll see french because he's fighting for his political life as france's presidential election begins in a few hours time was opinion polls saying he could be toppled by his socialist rival francois hollande a defeat for sarkozy has been a close ally to washington will massively change france's foreign policy so as michel chossudovsky from the research center on globalization in montreal. succors cd is coal sa cool. he is the american that he is supportive especially of american interests rather than the
interests of oppression public very much they keep us policy it puts us foreign policy i suspect that if if some foresee go was let's say egypt else walk alone becomes president of the republic we may see. a mild shift in in the. french foreign policy but i should also mention the other. aspects of this question which is the role of wall street probably european economic landscape cozy was to all an instrument of washington and perhaps your presidents a socialist president will give us a little bit more of its republican you know traditions of the pendants voice of the world scale as well as within the european union.

a skills they hoed on the tundra and i'm about to join the celebrations. last seen throwing. stick wrestling. and hurdle jumping cause for competition but the main event is rapidly approaching. a range of races bringing teams from foreign oil and the competition is tough i feel a bit nervous my rivals get better every year even though i won last year this year the younger ones may compete on a par with me. and perhaps he's right to be a bit jittery it seems getting started is the trickiest moment. sometimes for a cameraman to. look at your feet. after the festivities to sit down to eat some reindeer of course but also that other russian
arctic speciality fish in this nearby factory they're preparing fountains of none of these are sea fish all having been caught quota from local rivers and i'm told demand is booming i think it's a notion that there isn't enough of our product even to cover the domestic market europeans find our products delicious and a collage equal if you were but so far with simply haven't enough of that. to see where all this comes from we caught up with andre he's been fishing since he was a child on the hill today the river shark pike like his catch and dream. as a true russian northerner. can't say for sure in the south it may have his advantages as for me i love to fish right here in the north when it's frosty the air is fresh and the sun is bright it's great that it's liberal ten point later and resolve to prepare his dinner and we have
