killing a welcome twelve apart on the eve of the trunk summit of western media i wash with reports on the so-called grand bargain that russia and the united states may or may not in-house and the americans are pretty clear that they want to see a decrease in the arena and presence in syria but i saw what they themselves paid in kind to discuss that i'm now joined by a senior advisor to iran's supreme leader ali akbar velayati really a great pleasure talking to you thank you very much for your time more. of you who. as you may know or most. is
a pretty hectic city these days just yesterday israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu stopped by to watch football. palestinian leader mahmoud abbas is visiting on the same day as you but none of you tell your visit formally it's you the upcoming meeting in helsinki is this just a coincidence that all your schedules happen to overlap. you know any connection reaching your attendance. to in your country and the presence of others. mentioned so i have come here independently only for the talking with the hiring. of all of them president putin i have cherry the messages of or great leader and all for president and president putin. we could try an opportunity for about two
hours the discourse. really shoes including the bilateral relations regional cooperation to national corporation but i'm sure you're full of the international news agenda mr putin is slated to make quite. soon with mr trump and i'm sure you heard that there are a lot of speculations about the so-called grand bargain supposedly and all for that mr trump may. make to president clinton to exchange syria for ukraine is that as far as you know is that really something that may be discussed behind closed doors these two issues or two independent. is ukraine cheny me. there is no any connection between these two important if. we are here to discuss a world the. it's russia.
cooperation in syria as well you run into is. this a poor the position of the. russians as you question do you know. you cry now speaking about the syrian talks. the western media report about it as a as a sort of a possibility that may happen but many analysts in russia suggest that this has already been implemented to some extent on the ground for example. iran's role in the operation is to good or earlier this year was last pronounced unusual its role in the current southern the found safe and daraa is even more limited would it be fair to say that iran has already partially deliberate what the americans and to some extent these rallies are asking for. or present in syria doesn't related to
the desire of the united states and other western countries which are following the diplomacy of the united states or some regional countries which are connected with the diplomacy of united states we are in syria on the basis of the invitation of legal government of syria to help the current of people of syria he support the to his whole integrity of syria and you're. fighting you're helping the syrian golan and if you close syria for fighting against terrorist groups. with the help of russia and some other countries fortunately we have overcome me because he's the. government of syria and syria have been facing and we do believe if.
they stop. and russia which are available in syria leave and he should remain there to. maintain these military against a terrorist group if he is there on syria the united states and. its allies will continue the search for supporting of tory school once again. the demo schools and the champions of. syria will be in danger and dangerous situation and once again we'll face the. development of new development of the. issue still we are there as the. who's the syria
because the main. responsibility of the defend the country. of the. syria. yet is here just. what i doubt the iranian policy is has no relation to the american policy do not correlate but i'm sure you know very well that russia tried to your cards made its policy with all the actors on the ground with a specific reason of achieving a point when all foreign troops i assume including russian troops would be could be withdrawn from that country and syria would be able to provide its security on its own is that concurrent with how iran sees the out cement go in in that country you know the russian for the moscow has its own polish we also follow your call that they are some corporation which it's in the
community. is there some a specific relation between russia and the united states is. not related to us. we are following your interests and also your interests to corporate. or friendly country russia so maybe in some we shoot in some field. or independent policy in the region but we are trying to cooperate together without any contradiction now speaking about the current operation in the south of syria that there has been some tactical accommodation between russia and syria on the one hand and the united states on the other hand at least in the form of the american on involvement they did not support the groups that they previously supported in that region i know
that iran has rarely almost never complimentary of they are american policies in the region but can you appreciate this post here on the part of washington of noninvolvement and allowing the syrian government together with the russian federation to take control of that area or against any kind of presence of the united states in the region if they want to continue their his unique who generally call e.c. the we against germany you know region in the region if you're in a region does could. understand the legal presence. the united states is trying to be in a region. when they are there the only job thier doing and they have shown that they do is creation of interest groups who are risking tone during the time his tenure in the foreign ministry
he. has so. many to the. she. has dissipated in the creation of the terrorist group in syria and iraq if you recall in the. threshold of the election of the uniqueness this. president trump. choose into the you who are the people who are these terrorist groups or if you're ultimately agree with mr trump in these coalition he wanted to in a game changer then he changed you follow the same policy that. created do you think you may have other things in common with mr trump and at least in the way how he conceptualizes there is no newcomer in purposes a common policy between us and the sitra and there could be no more overlap of
views on how the region develops we're not. because we know that. he has his you know any policy you know or the war you're against any kind o. expansionism and any kind of a unit where you notice it or any other country now as the americans keep on insisting on the. removal of the iranian presence as they put it in syria they and their allies seem to be in trenching and the system you're freydis and i'm sure you know the mr trump's current national security advisor mr bolton wants advocated for the creation of the so-called sunni stand a quasi state that includes parts of syria and iraq do you think that may still be on on washington's mind do you think that could be the ultimate goal of the policy
we're not going to listen to mr trump or. ameri churn in. the influence. we are following the interests of the people in this region. we already know very close cooperation with the friendly country that we have in the region it iraq and syria there were none with yemen. we don't permit the united states to intervene in the interim that's very or country and also or friendly country in their image that's all made policy that we follow and we're not going to change these various if you fall it's obvious that this is not what i'm asking for a muscular if you see any danger in the americans coming back to the so-called plan b. reach would be splayed syria and possibly iran iraq into several states and create
a state left there and that's what threaten serious security and interest and ice you know arouse interest as well they cannot do that because the people of iraq and syria are against any kind of as your own you know the united states and the people of these countries will not tell you the united states to repeat their union although you support these very legal desire of these people in their reach well mr bell yet you have to take a short break now but we'll be back in just a few moments so that you know. it's hard to imagine after the war a nazi don't tell was still active. in the nineteen seventies parental head as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery and
a german company developed a little mind a drug that was promoted as completely safe decent during pregnancy and it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby. anything paul you know she said she's just got choked up minix a little mind victims i have to this day received no compensation they never apologized for the suffering that not only want the money i want the revenge. join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to get off of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. hello my name's peter and i've been living in bushnell for about seven years and this is a film about just some of the crazy things i've gotten through in the time. i
so when you want to be president. it's like before. the more people. interested in the law. you're. welcome back to worlds apart with a senior adviser to run supreme leader ali akbar velayati mr bill yet you israel seems to be very convinced and is trying to convince everybody else about iran is seeking to intrench itself and syria for the specific purpose of attacking. israel . i'm sure you would deny that's the case but if that's not the case why does iran
continue sun being advanced weaponry like for example surface to air missiles to syria especially now and knowing that the chance of israel striking those convoys is very high. this man who is running. the regime is the doing like you bay you're wrong the man being all the people in the war and people are not sitting there listening to the. regime to see a word they say or he says so he when he has following there is only interests we are in syria. with the protests of. israeli regime he will not change europe certainly policy.
in the region is the helping of the people of the region including the people of iraq syria and lebanon so it's not related to the. the israeli regime of course what he's doing was for thirty states repeatedly he's has said something that nobody listened to me so we don't care what he said dr you follow a policy. obviously you're here follow your policy as you said but you know that russia has developed a pretty warm relationship with israel some say that it's the bast ever in the history of bilateral ties how is it taken can't tap trust mosque and off and knowing how close it is that israel with trust in moscow in a common policy in the region but. every
country follows its own national interests. we are trying to. strengthen. the common policy and common use that we have in the region and international arena of course just not sure if in some issues we have or independent policy and the russian. as their own independent. so it doesn't make any difficulty for us if we have some commonalities something different now whenever this issue of decreasing the iranian presence in syria is raised and always usually say that russia doesn't have enough leverage with iran to tell it what to do and i think you would probably agree with that but
i also think that moscow would not even raise that issue with iran unless it was sure that all the other actors where they are illegally would follow suit and withdraw that troops has a mosque or has enough skill enough capital political and diplomatic capital to ensure that syria is once again a sovereign state of to know we. didn't hear anything. in the russian official they changed or presence in syria or egypt because this is a region and also the russian federation also is the same region so we have regional corporation it doesn't mean that in. diplomacy we are compatible. but in the many issues in many fields
we're really close relation value close cooperation so we will remain in syria of two the time the league will go into syria. to leave syria otherwise you will be there on the basis of the permission and requests of the syria and also iraq iraq has. to be there. to them for fighting is terrorism. any kind of the you can do to the. people in the region going into the region including syria iraq yemen liver and also yemen if yemen are supposed to help them to be reined peace unturned could it be in the region new england has not his day to do that going back to this idea of
a grand bargain that i started this interview with it could be argued that it's not just mr trump who could entertain that idea but that similar bargain would be off for it's you know many regional actors for example syria how would iran relate she or any offer of a more active saudi involvement in that country for example with. over there off our african struction. missile tran is doing the asia northeast is. free the suggestion to today. be a change to say how free to work so no word each area on the other words and also we are not looking for the. scene there. from. to. return full to cooperativeness.
interring in the game or any underworld getting that he has made him in some portal during shooting the munis who will not to participate in the ne jame anybody that he has made. itself to them to him to cooperate is. if lois he also european israel. they have different policy or main quality in the region is cooperation with the. people of iraq and syria and lebanon. we don't want to enter in the any kind of worry uni. going to be created. the truck that's the key if i may ask here on the formal purpose of your visit as
far as i know your formal reason of coming here since you explained the iranian position on the way in the aftermath of the american a tro and from what i know iran has so far insisted that if they'll stay within the deal if the europeans do enough. to make a palatable for your country have they been a session supplier have they offered and often scientific to your country to continue complying with your. we. very close cooperation with russia. mr reeves is in close contact you know still no rove and recently they had this meeting in vienna and they were very corporate. and also the european countries are trying to remain. the same as we've worked.
the european countries should compensate worked. we have lost after the meter all. of the united states illegally from disagreement i'm sure your follow the latest results of the nato summit in brussels and it's shocked many russians i have to tell you by the way mr trump treated his american partners do you think this if he continues on that path relating to the europeans in that way do you think it would be easier for iran to get what if iran wants from the europeans because you said before in previous interviews that there is no unity here on the iranian question but in europe. you know all cooperate unit you're all in in that train or he's quite. understand their role is continue but what they're doing in nato he's not. come but
you know what you wish to have in the european countries of course use they want to destroy the world everything and every subject in nato itself with them but you are going to defend also. the follow or. if knowing all this the regional and international who are if. nato members. such as so i don't know thank you thank you very much. ah ah .
i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the us is over twenty trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth you longs to the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw a thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred trade first circuit first second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember is one one business shows you can afford to miss the one and only.
