4:02 pm
seeing the regulars lose, but the fact that the united states and china have agreed on a wide ranging resolution, which the u.s. ambassador is saying is unprecedented in it's points and it's scope, is a sign that things are moving full speed ahead let me tell you a little bit about what is in the resolution. >> they continue to advance the program, specifically the resolution for the first time will call for the mandatory inspection of all cargo going in and out of north korea.
4:03 pm
that's something very new mandatory inspection, there are also provision to close loopholes in the existing arms embargo, now small weapons are also part of that. there are tighter sanctions. more financial sanctions on individuals on companies, and on ships, ships certain ships will be prohibited from leaving north korea, and docking in other countries. and also for the first time, the united nations is banning from north korea the export of certain minerals, iron ore, rare earth minerals and so forth, and also preventing north korea from importing air nautical fuel. rocket fuel in particular. obviously that would be very important to this nuclear program. so as far as the united states is concerned, a very strong resolution that still has to be passed, here is what samantha power had to say after the meeting.
4:04 pm
>> these sanctions if adopted, would send an unambiguous and unyielding message to the regime. the world will not accept your proliferation. there will be consequences for your actions. and we will work relentlessly, and collectively, to stop your nuclear programs. >> so what happens next? is. >> well, the united states is interested in moving full speed ahead to get this resolution passed. we are hearing there could be a vote as soon as this weekend. one u.s. official familiar with the text and the negotiation says that it is very technical. we are talking about 22 cages in this resolution, five annexes he does expect there to be some technical discussions and technical aspects that need to be worked out, but the fact that china, and the united states, agree on this, china, of course, one of north korea's closest ally ms. the region, signals they have come a long
4:05 pm
way. it's been seven weeks of negotiation since north korea launched -- or i should say tested a nuclear weapon. and so they are hoping that they will have the votes ready this weekend. >> live at the united nations, thank you very much. >> iranians are hours away from the first two elections lifting sanctions and paving the way for increased economic growth. two polls one for the parliament, and another for the experts that will choose the next supreme leader, the parliament is currently dominated by conservatives, but that could change given progressive success on achieving the iranian nuclear deal. but there's tension over the number of hopefuls ban from running p p about 12,000 people wanted to run in the 290 seat parliament, but just 5,000 have been cleared. from teheran, andrew simmons reports. >> one that could be more
4:06 pm
moderate. believes change is coming. she became the first woman vice president between 1997, and 2005. >> back in 1979, she was the voice of resistence. able 19, spokes woman for iranian students who held 52 americans hostage for 444 days. and the u.s. embassy crisis. she now serving a third term as vice president this time under house san, and she believed the conservatives majority in parliament will be overturned. >> i think that the people believe that they can change the course of events. if people have not elected him, if they had not come to the polls, 2 1/2 years ago,
4:07 pm
we would have not successful in the nuclear deal, and lifting the sanctions. >> but there are powerful institutions standing against moderates and reform is the guardians council made up of conservatives and hardliners cut the number standing for the parliamentary elections behalf. it also has an effect on the assembly of experts. cutting the numbers standing for that body, by more than three-quarters. most of those disqualified were either reformists or moderate. >> the way that it is actually done, i think that esa open for a lot of criticism. >> what is your view of it? >> we should be more open in terms of allowing people, particularly those who are coming for example, strong
4:08 pm
political credential ms. the past, or people that are coming for the time, and they don't have that much experience in the political arena. i think that they should be given the chance. >> even if conservatives did lose control, the supreme leader would still hold absolutely power with control of military, judiciary, and wide range of islamic institutions. andrew simmons, al jazeera teheran. more on this joining us live, in florida, he is the executive director of the world center for strategic and diplomatic studies at the university of south florida, thank you very much indeed for being with us, how likely is it that we will feel a shift in the balance of power as a result of these elections? >> thank you for having me on. the fact that much of the east today is in turmoil, and we have states raise of terrorism, civil wars the
4:09 pm
very fact that we are going to have hopefully an orderly election in iran, i think that says a lot about the stability in the islamic of iran. i understand that the nominating process has been controlled, but the fact that we have competitive elections after the nominating process, that's good news. i have no idea what is going to happen. a, whether there would be a change in balance in power. the more moderate elements the centerrists, those who are supportive of more opening to the west of a more moderate iran and foreign policy, would be in control of the iranian parliament, and therefor the parliament would be friendliest, and gentler. i would be looking for the turnout. is it going to be a turn out that is lower than the past, or higher than the past. >> yeah.
4:10 pm
on the turnout, some have suggested that the reformist are less likely to turn out to vote, because they are disillusions with the pace of progress, do you think that's fair? or do you think they might be prepared to turn out and make the effort? even if they don't think they make exactly what they want? >> i think it is not the fair assessment. it is fair to say that the reformist, those who supported they were eliminated from elections. but, he has advocated that people should participate in p the elections because no matter what you think about the elections in iran, it is the only game in town. it is the way you can change policy and if you can have a turn out, some of the 65 to 70, that would be a significant achievement for the staunch republican, because that is even higher than the turnover in mature democracies like the united states of america.
4:11 pm
>> how much of a role do you think the nuclear deal will play? do you think it still has an effect? >> i think i was hoping, that the sanctions would be lifted much earlier. so that the people of iran could see the positive results of the lifting of the sanctions. unfortunately, they were not lifted as quickly as they should have. and therefore, the economic condition in iran has not been proved as much. but i am hoping to see that a large portion of the iranian leck story rate would vote for moderation in policy, and toward as more open and equitable society inside iran. >> thank you very much indeed for taking the time to talk to us, appreciate it. >> syrian observatory says forces have taken back the down from isil fighters. it is important for his troops because there is their only access to rebel held aleppo.

donald trump was in the vernal of unraveling there did it impact him when it came to the votes, no it didn't, but this time with only five people on stage, and he will be the focus of many attacks from cruz and rubio, it will be interesting to see how he responds. and perhaps even the moderators will drill down deeper. he can't just keep saying we will make america great, at some point he has to start putting the flesh on the bones of that. now a lot of the supporters don't care what he says they will vote for him anyway, but it is the floating voters he needs to appeal to and intermountain voters so now is the time that they come under the spotlight, mow is when he has to start to perform and certainly a bit like a potential nominee. >> thank you very much indeed. people in ireland will go to the polls on friday. it has made a significant
