10:04 pm
recently asked what keeps me up at night. and my answer was simple bureaucracy fragmented structures byzantine procedures and endless red tape at the beginning of the year in washington d.c. i spoke with a senior white house official who said it was the administration's intent to gut the united nations that hasn't happened so for now the u.n. may feel it's dodged the bullet but this is an issue that will be revisited and it's possible down the line that president trump may feel that the changes that have been made are not bold enough. the president will be staying in new york for most of the week he gives his long formal address to the u.n. on cheese day as well as holding meetings with all the world leaders with north korea high on the agenda space al-jazeera of the united nations. our u.n. correspondent jordan joins us live now from the headquarters in new york so i guess
10:05 pm
donald trump certainly striking a more conciliatory tone towards the united nations is it really mean though that he's changed his tune or is he just doing to keep up appearances. well barbara one of the things that could certainly indicate that the president is changing his tune as it were would be if there were any significant change in the requests which he has sent to congress for you when funding it does include a rather sizable chunk of funding cut from the lands peacekeeping operations as well as another sizable chunk we're talking tens of millions of dollars here in funding for general you an operation so unless you see something of that sort actually put before the u.s. congress this may have been full of cars and trees in order to get the high level meetings here at the u.n. general assembly on the right foot and rosalyn that the proper speeches are due to start on tuesday but a lot of bilateral meetings are already taking place there the united nations we
10:06 pm
know that a few hours ago president trump held a meeting with israel's prime minister do we know what came out of that. well they did show some video of the two men before their meeting in the past hour barbara and they talked about their problems with the iran nuclear deal the president once again calling it a very badly on negotiated deal netanyahu agreed with him but something else that trump talked about was the fact that he still believes. that mideast peace can be negotiated and achieved between the israelis and the palestinians to that point benjamin netanyahu said something that a lot of observers have found surprising rather than achieving first a peace deal between the israelis and the palestinians and then clearing the way for peace accords between other arab nations and the state of israel there seemed
10:07 pm
to be a deal linking it seemed. that these two things could happen possibly at the same time. that would be significant but it is worth noting that in recent days one of the leaders of the g.c.c. countries noted that it would be fine for his citizens to visit israel even though the two countries don't have diplomatic relations and it might be a little difficult for them to get tourist visas will be interesting to see what comes out of the official statements that will be made over the next few days by all the the leaders involved in jordan at the u.n. thank you. kurdish leaders in iraq say they'll go ahead with an independence vote next week despite a ruling by iraq's supreme court suspending the referendum the court ordered that the poll be postponed until questions about its legality have been addressed the
10:08 pm
referendum will be held on september twenty fifth in the three provinces that make up the oil rich kurdish region as well as disputed territories the government in baghdad regional neighbors iran and turkey and the u.s. have all called for the vote to be delayed they fear it could create instability which would help isolate audible hamid as mourner from air bill the capital of the kurdish region. more pressure to postpone the referendum this time coming from the british government the u.k. defense secretary michael fallon is here in erbil where he is meeting with kurdish president masoud barzani he was earlier in baghdad and he said from there that he was coming here to try to convince the kurds to postpone the vote he also said that the u.k. was firmly against it at this point now this comes after earlier in the day the federal supreme court issued a state order calling for the suspension of the referendum until it reaches
10:09 pm
a final ruling now this is actually an order that should be by the kurds even though after the supreme court expressed itself a statement came out from the regional prime minister's office saying that the referendum was still going ahead but according to the two thousand and five constitution well the federal supreme court is the authority that rules in case of ethnic sectarian and regional political problems in this country and the kurds were fully part of the. process of writing that constitution so they are at the moment at least publicly showing still that posture of defiance whether there are some sort of negotiations going on between erbil and baghdad at the moment is something that one could fairly be confident about. syrian activists say government troops
