live from moscow are you watching r t you with me to bomb and say it's good to have you with this afternoon let's take a look at our top story this hour potentially ground breaking nuclear talks with iran have entered the third day honoring a man with a discussion on friday that went on on long after sunset most of the six nations attending the talks express cautious optimism over the meeting and us also joins about me live from geneva with more now. what progress has been made so far and what's still hampering on. well i think cautious optimism is the correct word to describe the statements that have that have been issued by the leaders
taking part in these talks here in geneva this morning we heard from the u.k. foreign minister william hague he was talking about having to seize the moment to clinch this elusive deal of the world has been waiting for whenever he also was careful to say that there still is no deal at the moment now we've also heard from the u.s. has been talking about having to narrow the gaps in terms of the issues that divide the nations and david cameron having said that peace talks offer an opportunity to make real progress so again they're trying to put some optimism out there but careful not to get hopes too high one of the countries though involved in the talks that tend to be going against the flow would probably be france the french foreign minister know how five views had already said that the israeli concerns have to be taken into consideration when coming up with an agreement william hague this morning was asked the same question and he said that he would rather not comment basically said we have to wait for a conclusion to be reached before any reaction to any agreement should be made but
again the french here seem to strike a slightly harsher told towards iran as they have done traditionally in the past and one of the a former presidential candidates in the reagan election sad said that the israeli lobby will affect not just probably france but also having a heavy impact on the united states we know that brock obama had already been calling the israeli leader trying to tell him what is going on in the talks in geneva let's listen to the presidential candidate of iran on what he had to say. this time because public us. we know it at this point about accepted the basic requirements of the by the last one on the problem is that mr kerry is going to come back to washington d.c. he's not going to live in geneva when he comes back to washington he's going to. miss he's going to see the crowd around him they. lobbied congress
they say on others very american right being sick and they did a public inquiry all up they're going to have to give him a real real hard on. tessa what about the israeli position or what's been what's the been on the deal on this deal. the prime print premier of israel's already been expressing. his discomfort at the talks going on here he is making some very very uncomfortable you know iran has been a longtime. enemy of the state of the he has been warning that if a deal here was struck it seemed that iran would be getting more and giving a lot less here and also said that israel is not going to be backing or standing behind any agreement to reached here and will make sure that they continue to ensure the security of their state listen to what he had to say so. iran got the deal of the century. and the international community got a bad deal this is
a very bad deal. also that so where the talks stand today we're still waiting if if and when any conclusion is reached indeed today. reporting live from geneva for us. however for why is on the professor of political communication at the university of tehran a says israel's whole kish stance on iran is starting to cost its allies. i think mr netanyahu is isolated. closer friend that the united states is moving away from the hawkish policies of the crude party he has worked for the last many years to manufacture a crisis because this is firmly iran's peaceful nuclear program and he is seeing all his efforts going away and he is obviously upset he should be upset. the
professor also things he israel's are threats of military action against iran are growing old and losing efficiency as a blackmail tool is basically saying that has an option to attack iran militarily that talking point that the israeli officials have been using for the last many years telling europeans that if you don't pressure iran economically to attack iran militarily obviously given the fact that israel has attacked its neighbors every few years for the last many decades you always have to worry about an israeli prime minister making threats like that but overall i think that type of threat is losing its. effectiveness and i think europeans are realizing that. and israel may be losing another level of international pressure. this creates a vacuum. that is much more perilous for israel's kind of global legitimacy.
view laskar voting rights along with the u.s. for failing to pay their dues that's coming up later. america's buzzing air space is bracing itself for a new invasion of thousands of drawings although they are expected to be used for peaceful purposes such as firefighting and weather tracking is causing a lot of concern and here is why you'll never notice it from the ground but the skies above the u.s. are crowded with roughly five thousand planes at any given moment yes these yellow spots are indeed planes the daily total of movement is up to a whopping ninety thousand you can only imagine what could happen if unmanned aircraft join this traffic and dangerous incidents involving drones have already taken place them as guy images you can reveals. according to the u.s.
federal aviation administration by twenty twenty there will be up to thirty thousand drones flying in the u.s. airspace not just by law enforcement and other government agencies but also by private firms all kinds of approaches to the f.a.a. game itself two years to come up with ideas on how to regulate that brave new world where everybody can fly their throw their designated six test sites across the country to see how it goes aside from very serious i would see concerns there's a danger of mid air collisions even now as the government has not yet allowed the commercial use of drones the f.a.a. is getting a rising number of safety complaints from pilots in march of this year and all the tali airliner made national news headlines when the pilot reported spotting a drone as he was trying to land at new york's j.f.k. airport back then the f.a.a. and the f.b.i. have open investigations into finding the drone the plane was flying over a densely populated area when he brushed shoulders with a drone to the horror of the pilots of course or in
a separate incident in the indianapolis five forty body image to load him in the opposite direction at a high speed. just to give you an idea of how concerned pilots are one pilot said we're concerned about birds we're concerned about other airplanes and now we're throwing in something totally uncontrolled when they suck one of those drones into the engine of an airplane he said then it will get everybody's attention and one of the challenges is that drones occasionally loose connection with the operator on the ground that so well reported problem but apart from accidental collisions there is another challenge drones can be hijacked by someone with very bad intentions so the brave new world of drones can also turn out to be a very dangerous one in washington. r.t. . australian and international pilots association vice president richard woodwind believes americans a will also raise prophecy concerns. well i think there will be
a little work for instance initially but for all things you get used to it it's just one of the big issues that for me you know i start to see because most of these sherm's that characteristics that are so what you would be in your private little bit that drive was born of a perfect view of everything in your backyard or your. door or your pitch and things really are and so this through cross you shoot using guns. one man's law also is another man's gain or in the case of the arab spring an opportunity for trying them report on beijing's economic charge into the middle east and north africa region left for the taking by crisis and violence. and ahead of the olympic torch spacewalk we managed to speak to the continent also participating in this unique part of the relay that's coming up. online thieves have carried out a daring bank heist to making off with more than
a million a us dollars worth of currency only this is a robbery with a difference because it's not dollars that have been swiped about big coins more than four thousand of them and they've been bagged line stolen from a virtual bank of up was only set up four months ago and in this daring robbery had broke into one of these supposedly secure while it's held by an unofficial bank and made off with the million dollar home entrepreneur william move says because security measures up well compared to traditional currencies. it's safe for the federal reserve notes the f.b.i. reports that of the thirty eight million dollars stolen from them of traditional banks last year only eight million dollars this recover of the forty one hundred points the owner of the home web hosting service has taken sixteen hundred of his own clients and used to give some people hundred percent of their money.
right here's how big coin works and it's called a crypto currency and can pay for any products or services because i held an online wallets which makes them vulnerable to hacking they can also be sent online without going through and regulated financial institution and that they can be exchanged for government backed companies like dollars all your eggs and just like gold big coins can be mined although the pick in this case is computer power and the more paul you use the greater the chance you could lend yourself a virtual coin their value has sold just as three years ago ten thousands of them can buy you a pizza right now the same amount could buy you a penthouse is when you move again what we see today in the world was a lie or crisis in greece and in the failure of cyprus is regulation doesn't work.
you have regulatory capture you just have a system failure and the thing that makes a big point exciting for people who believe a bit point is the fact that it's an emergent system if it does require regulation to survive it really wasn't as good as we thought it was. a look at china's global resource grab an hour report on washington's call data shopping habits that's coming up next after the break. thanks. i cut . the. turkey a little very hard to tell. you
a fresh twist in the global spying scandal it's been reported the cia is paying the american telecoms giant eighty and millions every yeah that's in exchange for accessing its database of cole records that says germany and brazil submitted a draft resolution to the u.n. and save guarding into that privacy and restricting mess of aliens journalist david c. men says when a government starts paying for private phone records citizens have a good reason to be afraid. it's a huge company that has its footprint all over the globe and they're just being paid to hand out this customer information is a clear violation of the fourth amendment and customers have nowhere to go because i'm sure he is not alone in this sort of practice why are they tracking the communications of private citizens who have no connection to crime or terrorism what is their real goal here if this is a form of i think a white form of terrorism where people are becoming afraid to use their own technology on their own devices it's really it's kind of orwellian and the
explanation they gave for it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. there's always plenty online for you including when the will to make yourself heard of stronger than any obstacles a greek channel from the studio to the streets in a bid to keep broadcasting live it to its viewers find out how they lost a regular guy always. and scientists that kind of make heads or tails of a brand new space discovery a six tale object has been spotted by a. telescope in our solar system the details that are. in just a few hours the olympic torch of the twenty fourteen winter games that will be taken on the space walk for the first time ever we've had an exclusive chance to talk to the cosmonauts who will carry it into space as the friends was at the mission control for us. for the first time in history the torch of the olympic games will be taken on a spacewalk aboard the international space station we got
a chance to speak with the crew up there today so we asked the cosmonauts who will take the torch on that spacewalk how they intend to mark this momentous occasion hi my name is lindsey friends from russia today and my question is for a lego tolls and survey results. the phrases that gaar and armstrong said on their pioneering space endeavors became historic the famous the whole way or let's go back to the right and the one small step by armstrong have you ever maybe thought of a catch phrase you will use when you take the olympic torch out on its first ever spacewalk and it's true that many is the most memorable moments amount to certain phrases i don't think will be too original here and any was that will accompany a spacewalk with the torch will aim to promote limpy movement and healthy lifestyle and sports to live in the world right and you don't have to be in outer space to feel the spirit of the game is for log coverage of the unique olympic torch
spacewalk live at fourteen forty g.m.t. here on it and online dot com. it may have cost in ruin for some part of the arab spring has turned out to be a godsend for others including china beijing's firms and diplomats are taking the middle east by economic storm filling a vacuum created by a possible u.s. withdrawal and as archie's a bell true reports even in crisis right egypt the chinese have found opportunity. this is north cairo where egypt's burgeoning chinatown has now planted its roots restaurant owner mohamad says the chinese community here is thriving despite the political turmoil. most chinese come here for study or to call the muslim chinese
minorities i opened my restaurant recently i know the political situation here is difficult but it doesn't affect chinese businesses it's a good place to live as us egypt relations soured after american officials with the help key military and economic assistance in october egypt has hinted at cozying up to other super powers like china and the list say to china its more about its political expansion gaining clout with one of the region's main players rather than finance we have sixty three agreements i mean different kinds of cultural political egypt is central country in the arab region and it is very useful to have good relations developing relations with us because we have a say in the region merging turn of the chinese embassy in cairo says although two thousand and thirteen was a turbulent year for egypt the country's exports to china increased by a staggering one hundred thirteen percent we were happy to see this figure we tried
to make more efforts. to reach the. one billion very small egypt's economy which had heavily relied on its tourism market has taken a pounding after two and a half years of revolution and regime change and with cairo and washington and not a heads it looks like egypt might keep looking eastwards. boccieri r.t. cairo. my colleague kevin and i will speak about china as a resource hunger with author and investor jim rogers who told us beijing's appetite isn't regional it's a worldwide. china is trying to secure natural resources all over the world africa south america central asia jervas off said that beijing success is build on washington's failures what do you think. well certainly if you look around the world you will certainly see there's
a lot of truth to that the chinese have more or less. their all over africa there by plantations and everything else america's got very little presence in africa now time is making inroads in the middle east and it's going to get a lot of oil from iran going forward it looks as though china may even start getting oil from iraq you know america says that they were a liberated iraq we're in the end it may be the chinese who get the oil tiny's look around the world they see what's happening over the next few decades they're going to be big shortages of oil and many other things developing the chinese like capitalists are trying to secure future supplies while they can get them in their cheap when other people are not rushing in to buy them the west say exit out of the middle east has not only been political hundreds of companies including energy ones have abandoned business stay tuned and that's led to a rise in pump prices will consume is a new rip today for the report exposing the ballooning energy costs. so these
demonstrators staged a bonfire by burning of energy bills to voice their opposition to rising cost of fuel burning their energy bill is like burning your draft card you know during the vietnam war they burned there are there are their draft cards burning their energy bill is similar in that you don't want to join up forces with the corrupt the big six energy companies in the u.k. that are there financial terrorism so if you don't want to support financial terrorism of the big six energy companies here in the u.k. you would burn your energy bill i suggest get a thousand people on the millennium bridge here in london to get together and burn their energy bill in unison. a look at other world headlines typhoon haiyan has killed at least one hundred twenty people in the philippine city of and nearby according to government officials the superstorm has put levelled at most of the houses rescuers are struggling with
worries are blocked and phone lines are down and the typhoon is the strongest to ever hit the philippines almost reaching the world record speed of three hundred twenty kilometers at least twelve million people are still at risk from the storm. so. people in the pakistani city of peshawar have taken to the streets for protests they mean to block a major military supply route in the area the protesters were outraged by a recent u.s. drone strike on a taliban command and the country's government says the attacker cut short peace talks as the middletons new leader is already calling for revenge. the u.s. along with this chief ally israel have loss of voting rights at the u.n. cultural agency unesco both countries missed in deadline for paying the juice and the organization said they'd stop contributions after unesco gave membership to
palestine in twenty eleven that cost the agency about eighty million dollars a yeah but the last is still mostly washington's and televisions according to some international affairs analyst. well there's no doubt that when the united states steps back from any global agency that american influence in the perception of american moral authority and its political credibility takes a hit suffers some damage one other consideration by the way is what happens with israel because israel also followed the u.s. in suspending its payment of dues and for israel this creates a vacuum that is much more perilous for israel's kind of global legitimacy. and it is for the united states. japan's nuclear nightmare next and breaking
the set with a mountain. illegal immigration is a hot topic and everyone always says that immigrants do the work that no one wants to do well let me explain why that is i would occur just on vacation got into a taxi driver by a former migrant worker who used to make a living in moscow he told me that he really worked hard driving unloading trucks after five years he came back home and bought a house yes for the seller that russians can't even survive on he was able to buy a house employers and russian america say that locals don't want to work or demotivated well want to margaret work or on a salary that could build a bright future one compared to a local who can't even make ends meet while you could see why the market workers
are a lot more motivated let me put it to you this way if you knew that you had to work five hard years of some awful labor under awful conditions somewhere far away like brazil or germany what would be able to pay off the house would you do it i think you would let's not buy into this myth that locals in country x. don't want to work they just don't want to work in complete futility for table scraps but the shust my opinion. how do you folks welcome to breaking the set i'm out of time you know i was going to fork over half a million dollars to obama in the last election just for the hell of it and then i did it because i'm not bill maher but now i'm full of regrets because you see if i did donate a large sum of money to the drone king i could have been in the passage or of
a fairly obama's thank this campaign finance or by awarding them with highly coveted embassador ships' expect those chosen for these important positions are. qualified and have some expertise in international relations or at the very least while traveled and flew into the language about respective state but in the us it looks like it's become a position free for all for the president's big spending friends see a woman named coleen bradley bell was just appointed be embassador for hungry her qualifications for the job include being the producer for a soap opera company called belle philip television her husband bradley is the head writer for the critically acclaimed soap opera the bold in the beautiful the bells hosted obama at their mansion last year for giant fundraising event with coleen personally raising more than two point one million dollars for the president according to the new york times as you can see she's calamity appropriate for the job after all the prime minister's twin brother sleeps with his wife and has an
illegitimate son who turns out to be a transsexual serial killer who better to solve the snafu than a soap opera producer but of course this is just the latest in a string of absurd appointments on their obama previous underqualified choices including bassett or to germany john emerson who's the former president the capital group private client services to spain james cost as a former h.b.o. executive james brewster ambassador of the medical republic as well as a real estate kingpin and senior managing partner for a consulting firm and who could forget caroline kennedy of the kennedy family as the ambassador to japan despite the fact that she doesn't speak a lick of japanese now before i get ahead of myself it's important that every president does this and not just with embassador ships with many positions in government remember when bush appointed a horse trainer to run fema all right all right maybe not a horse trainer but commissioner for the international arabian horse association so kids moral the story here don't give up on your dreams maybe next election cycle
reconsider donating hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars to your favorite corporate tool because you might just win an ambassadorship. is that the purpose of the pledge it was terrible a little very hard to take the stance against the money or the plug in that or had sex with that or make their lives let's call it was. just some. lists lists lists .
