international news life from moscow this is with me your national politics for joining us. to iran has signed an agreement with the un's atomic watchdog which allows it access to several of the rance nuclear facilities including the controversial iraq heavy water plant but there was no progress in the latest round of talks on how to limit iran's nuclear program france is widely blamed for stalling a breakthrough while israel lashed out at its allies for negotiating what it called a dangerous deal. so long ago that the talks did seem promising you had the rainy and foreign minister meeting with the european union policy chief foreign policy chief catherine ashton and the mood in that meeting was certainly one of optimism but israel has been opposed to these negotiations from the start to say that iran will cheat anyway and in fact israel has always been against iran's
7:02 am
nuclear program of course israel the fear is that it will use nuclear weapons against the jewish state to essentially bomb israel the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has called these recent talks in geneva a very bad deal for everyone except for to read what netanyahu says is that easing sanctions on iran would be like to quote netanyahu putting a hole in a tire on the other hand you have the united states which is closed these negotiations what we've seen is possibly the most serious and mary-kate is really a standoff and dispute in the years. because it. has a nuclear threshold. we are not blown them i don't think we're stupid i think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe particularly of our allies like israel we did
7:03 am
earlier hear from iran after the talks ended on saturday that it was in fact paris who was responsible for blocking any kind of deal the french foreign minister fabia saying that we don't want a fool's deal what we're hearing now from the u.s. secretary of state is that the blame is on iran's shoulders kerry saying that the major powers were in fact united on an iranian nuclear deal but it was the rain ians who were unable to accept it kerry saying that they were united front united on saturday when the proposal was presented to the radiance but to quote him the french had signed off on it but he ran wasn't able to accept the deal at that particular moment and that is a quote. the failure to reach a temporary do is largely being blamed on parents whose roadblock took washington by surprise iran's supreme leader railed on twitter against the french move he
7:04 am
described as imprudent and inept political analysts say the harman veranda is as the u.s. still has the upper hand in the talks. believe the french are in coordination with the united states and it's a sort of good. combination some believe that the french are the current french government is very close both israel and the saudi regime and that they have a great deal of influence but it's very difficult to imagine under any circumstances the french really standing up to the united states at the end of the day if the united states is adamant that it deals should be struck i think that the french will fall in line and in crosstalk today valor his guys to debate whether the hardline stance or western powers against iran's nuclear program is justified. priscilla he is in pain for the in south after her aunt was not iran was not
7:05 am
transparent according to the nonprofit you can't pursue but you have to be transparent and. when you establish or you for you you you put you build a place in order to enrich uranium so you know it's these i think kind of can understand information but again i don't want to go into detail into the know but what i what i do agree with what i was saying is that if you look at how countries view the western assault on iran for the last few decades most countries in the world disagree with it very strong majority against it is the perception is is that the again the americans and it's a close allies hijack what we mean by the international community and you know what they could even be bombed to hell in the name of the international community which would be an absolute fraud george go ahead. yes exactly. in the case of iran the i.a.e.a. has never found that iran had
7:06 am
a nuclear weapons program that he was diverting any. towards nuclear weapons program even the u.s. intelligence agencies have not found that iran is a nuclear weapons program so therefore this is use you as israeli policy against iran there is absolutely really no basis at all on the law or on evidence. and to describe the situation around iran further let's now cross live to mohammad to have son from the university mr carney welcome to our team is good to have you with us so france has shown a lot of skepticism at those talks why was paris so reluctance to make any concessions. well the therion nuclear issue is something that is going to be somehow again
7:07 am
a matter of controversy in international politics but there are a few facts there are verses a few accusations and allegations the fact is that iran has been developing nuclear technology for peaceful purposes and iran has every right according to n.p.t. iran is a signatory of n.p.t. and i am member of i.a.e.a. so in that sense according to n.p.t. iran has been a little bit right to develop its own nuclear peaceful technology but from the israeli point of view these are their side of the story and they are accusing iran iran has been developing nuclear weapons that there is no basis and no single proof for that so. the point here is that in this round of negotiations in geneva which was in my view a turning point everybody came so and i agreement to make sure that if you want
7:08 am
we'll have its nuclear rights and on the other side you won show this is a readiness to prove to the ward and to somehow is the concerns of the western contras that iran is not working on military nuclear technology but unfortunately it seems that at the last moment the french came and it was somehow a setback there are a number of explanations that why france did that maybe the first of all everybody knows. most important factor in this case was the pressure from tel aviv and somehow french government decided to appear in this last scene as somehow a supporter of soviet blocking the deal and somehow. contributing to the wishes of netanyahu they're all another scenario talking about the fact that maybe france
7:09 am
is somehow worried about our hours in the persian gulf region all moved out so there are. all. billions of euros on stay so in that sense france wanted to somehow show a sense of support for the governments in this region specifically so right now. to make sure that deals with be there are right but in the late august as we remember france signed a very lucrative one billion billion dollar arms deal with saudi arabia which is iran's staunchest opponent in the region so could this affect france's position in these negotiations. exactly this is what i said that could be a really good explanation that wally. france is not that happy to see a solution to the cross' you know the longer destroys this goes on the more
7:10 am
opportunity for the arms sales to this country is france would be benefited from re no doubt from a very bad situation in economic terms so in that sense the economy and to trade could be a factor which is a very unfortunate case there are also issues all the saw those who believe that maybe france did it on behalf of the americans this war this time but i do believe that the first couple of reasons could be more common wincing. from the. university mr carney thank you very much indeed for sharing it with us. in early november israel put out tenders for the construction of more than eighteen hundred units in the occupied west by something its closest ally be your last condemned as a hindrance to peace talks and later today so official or not it speaks to
7:11 am
a loan out former director general of the israeli foreign ministry about the hopes of ever reaching a breakthrough in search for to state solution. is no dorks we look. for the peace agreement when we meet next to talk with the palestinians in three or five wills maybe ten years the volume of the settlements will be bigger the chance for a palestinian state smaller saw i personally. do not understand what this government is doing i know that a lot of bridges from the israeli right to go all circling but. we will is logos for this. the u.s. and e.u. putting together a free trade agreement that bear hailing as historic and mutually beneficial but
7:12 am
critics say it's ignoring something democracy a single market for europe and america means not just regulate trade differences between the two sides or be removed but it's claimed a big business will also be able to overrule the will of governments however the e.u. has promised a big benefits one hundred nineteen billion euros and annually and journalist again miltie warns this is about profit and nothing more. corporate sovereignty is about putting the corporation above the nation it lets a company sue a country and they can do that when they claim that their expectation of future profits has been diminished by changes in legislation all by particular station already in place and what i think will happen is that companies like monsanto will sue the e.u. for billions of dollars because they will say that refusing to allow genetically modified organisms to be sold here is actually
7:13 am
a barrier to trade and therefore their profits have suffered and therefore under the tee to wriggle ations assuming they go through they will claim to have a right to sue the european union the biggest benefit from the free trade deal will count from eliminating barriers between the coal continents but limited believes that is barrier as a much needed to protect the citizens the americans won't accept the generally more stringent european regulations they said this quite clearly said the only way you can go is down that means we get rid of all of the gains that the european union is made of the last twenty or thirty years in terms of protecting health protecting environment labor regulation the americans will want to get rid of all of those and that's how the gains will come because those are costs to business but they're not cost to people those are the things that protect people. this agreement. is not lessening the revelations of u.s. intelligence donna saying its leaders and citizens get in the way of business on
7:14 am
the hills on the spying revelations they complain a lot of trucks. on a looks now at whether the frustration is enough to. train. the idea behind tough to the transatlantic free trade agreement is to generate billions of dollars of business between the united states and the european union well it all sounds great however the amount of snags that this deal is hits over the time since it's been put on the table suggests that not everybody is happy with everything that it would not itself a little bit more about some of those stumbling blocks i'm joined by michael economic analyst thank you very much for talking to me now just over a shoulder over here just over your shoulder over there is the u.s. embassy now the john kerry the secretary of state says that the n.s.a. spying saga isn't going to be an issue when it comes to talking about trade but that saga has limited trust between the two countries how can you have trade when you don't have trust i mean germany and to you is nothing.
7:15 am
slaves of the united states politicians are saying oh this is very bad. but there is no real consequence out of it you know how does that relate to business in particular if you will say one of the big giant german companies would you be willing to sit down with one of your american counterparts do you trade knowing that perhaps they were listening in to all of your secret conversations of course the n.s.a. and all the spying is not only about political issues but also about economic facts german companies are aware that they are speired and the americans take the results of the spying for themselves but they cannot do anything against it there is a potential legislative minefield that comes from this and also the potential for the stripping of sovereign rights. lots of people have campaigned in the you saying the too many rights go to determine by brussels what this could end up seeing is that trades could end up determining the laws of

marked across the globe a minute's silence to honor the heroes and victims of the first world war and other conflicts including the catastrophic second world war russian and british veterans were among those who joined together to recall their alliance that beats the nazis are now reports. earlier this year the russian government was finally allowed to say a special thank you to british arctic convoy veterans who had traveled to the save the union with supplies during the siege of leningrad the u.k. government gave its blessing for veterans to receive russia's naval bravery award called the medal it's the result of years of campaigning because of illegal snag that forbids the queen subjects' from we're saving foreign decorations it is very significant because actually generally people in this country and allowed to receive medals from other countries that is not the norm i mean dates back. to the
7:25 am
mists of time with queen elizabeth first in a sort of rather aggressive way said my dogs were only where my colors but this is now being waved in the case of the medal and i think it's because of this very close link that's been forged at a ceremony in downing street in june the russian president awarded the first twenty veterans already there is the in russian we see all those who contributed to the fight against nazi germany as heroes and it gives me great pleasure to ward you with the medal. but what toward all that man him barked on the freezing johnny through the arctic waters is still underway for the past four months the russian embassy here in london has been working hard to track down every single veteran eligible for the coffee medal but let me show you the actual room where they work takes place. with the help of the ministry of defense and its medals office the russian embassy has been busy writing to veterans and many of them have been
7:26 am
writing back and we have gone. through those people are writing from the hospital really thankful for this medal this was such great feedback and sometimes we even redwood's these letters because it was really touching it's a medal that many of the men that took part in the convoys the youngest of whom is now eighty six say they thought they wouldn't live to see or tears or people should be recognition gerster grateful. to receive in this year's. incarcerated the internet very hard to wear it for sure i remember those are very kind of understood certiorari for our drummer and often have their song and jimmy's not the only one over three thousand veterans have responded to the russian proposal to award them with the magic. this is in a way the last chapter in a book which is about recognizing the war effort in both countries the men that

beacon estimates and a retired army colonel with a family currently paid four hundred sixty dollars a year for health care would have to pay around two thousand dollars make you pay even more for your war injuries apparently that's what obama's actually planning while he is reading those lovely speeches off of teleprompters people who are against the post nine eleven war against who knows what are often told that they don't support the troops well to the people who say bring the troops home never advocate tripling their health care premiums no they don't all of the chicken hawks who send the troops off to die in questionable wars are the ones who want to make them pay even more for their injuries but that's just my opinion. in rural areas the majority of families living here are pro gun learning to fire is often part of a child's education the moral value of protecting the family is more important than the physical aspect where in south dakota. jack is five he can barely get out of
