5:07 pm
president donald trump is expected to finally announce whether he will uphold the iran nuclear deal late on friday under the landmark agreement sanctions against iran east in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program but president trump has criticized the deal and has threatened to scrap it mike hanna wraps up the events from the u.n. in new york. repudiation of the iran deal was a central promise of the trump electoral campaign and i'm disgusted i've never seen anything like it in my life and by the way be careful because we made a rare and a real power gave one hundred and fifty dollars. now think of it thank you the crowd booed almost certainly unaware that wasn't the case the sum of money released in terms of the deal was in fact iran's own funds that had been frozen by previous sanctions we didn't get anything we got nothing during his first months in office president trump had to acknowledge the fact that iran was complying with its
5:08 pm
side of the deal formally certifying so on two occasions but the us ambassador to the united nations has apparently been at the forefront of finding a way in which the president could fulfill his campaign promise coming up with the argument that iranian compliance was not the only thing that need be certified we owe it to ourselves to look at every aspect of this deal and understand that this was a flawed deal and understand that this flawed deal has negative consequences as well this argument that other factors such as u.s. national interest should be taken into account rejected by other signatories to the deal. the new agreement is about nuclear nuclear is fulfilled the agreement is the living. made clear to the fact that the u.s. cannot take unilateral action without security council consensus the deal being signed by the five permanent members along with germany known as the p five plus
5:09 pm
one how many you cannot join with me iran has. all members of the p five plus one stand in line with iran except that one russia china three european countries the holy you and hundreds of countries they are all standing with iran. perhaps the real interest of president trump is not the deal itself but the perceived political and personal need to meet one of his campaign promises if so president tran could pay a long term cost for the short term satisfaction of his rightwing support base not least the dilution of trust in u.s. commitment to international agreements the fracturing of relationships with traditional allies and the possible if not probable repudiation of a security council whose authority would be disdainfully floated by a thumping member mike hanna al-jazeera at the united nations let's bring in
5:10 pm
the white house so kimberly what are we expecting from mr trump in what just a few hours from now. indeed the president will be making his announcement what we expect will be a real departure from what we've seen from the previous administration terms of iran strategy he'll be speaking in the diplomatic room here at sixteen forty five and what we believe is that donald trump will stop short of withdrawing from the iran nuclear agreement as he had promised to do on the campaign trail as mike hanna pointed out there but what we expect we will see is a tougher u.s. strategy with respect to iran countering iran's influence of the eyes of the united states in terms of funding from groups such as hezbollah also support for syrian president bashar al assad what we expect this will be is a sort of a confrontational approach moving forward but certainly also suggesting that the nuclear agreement is not in america's best interest now one of the big questions in
5:11 pm
all of this would be will donald trump declare the i.r.g.c. or the iranian revolutionary guard corps a terrorist organization we believe that will not happen but in not sort of recertifying the sort of compliance of iran something under the terms of the twenty fifteen agreement which has been done twice already what this is going to do we expect is now kick this to the u.s. congress in terms of next steps so what many would say this is donald trump in some respects speaking out of both sides of his mouth peter trying to satisfy the base as mike hanna put it there in terms of saying he would scrap the steel not doing that but also triggering action in terms of moving forward to potentially scrap it in the future but also take tougher action towards iran for the time being is there a better deal that he could accept and sell to his base.
5:12 pm
well certainly that is going to be difficult because the base is going to want to hold him to the campaign promises and there have been a number of campaign promises up to this point not met so it's certainly going to come to congress now which will have a number of options in terms of moving forward there certainly could be sanctions reimpose they could do nothing there are a number of different options and i think this is going to be these lawmakers now listening to their constituents in terms of trying to satisfy but as we know the congress has been pretty ineffective up to this point the only sort of body that has lower ratings than the president the white house is the u.s. congress in terms of public approval so this is no small task and in fact there already is a rather have the legislative plate on lawmakers agenda at this time so certainly this is adding to that it is complicated and certainly it's also going to affect those very important u.s. relationships particularly when it comes to the european union that has cautioned
5:13 pm
the united states against doing any of this type of action that we expect the president will outline very shortly kimberly thank you at least two people have been shot dead during protests against kenya's electoral commission rallies subject in place despite a government by police in nairobi to disperse protesters with tear gas opposition supporters took to the streets of a planned presidential election really wrong for me to miller isn't my rupi force for me to do is this beginning to color these last few remaining days before the rerun of selection. well peter that certainly is the case especially considering that this political environment in kenya at the moment is quite tense given that the main opposition leader raila odinga was drew from the rerun that is expected to take place on the twenty six of a despite there being a number of questions being raised around how this election can take place the electoral body the ib see saying it's ready for the elections it's made
5:14 pm
a few changes but they haven't we did nothing to win the respect of the opposition who says that it doesn't believe the upcoming elections will be credible if we look back at a supreme court ruling after the august eighth elections it was found it was ruled by the supreme court that the a.b.c. had faltered and that they had been some irregularities in how the election was conducted or certainly how some of the votes were counted and how are they were tallied the concern going towards these elections is around the protests which we expect to continue the government has banned the opposition from the protesting specifically in the central business district of three major cities they say this is because of looting criminal behavior and for them they say it's a security concern but as we've seen at least two protesters were killed early in
5:15 pm
the western part of kenya and we understand that this is when protesters try to storm a police station in that area police opened fire to stop them from entering the premises but the concern here is why police are using our live ammunition as opposed to rubber bullets or trying to disperse protesters in any other way we know the opposition says they'll continue with protests they want to up the number of demonstrations to every day in the coming week so we know that this environment will continue to be tense for many kenyans for me thank you. south africa's president jacob zuma says he's disappointed the country's supreme court of appeal has dismissed his latest attempt to avoid hundreds of corruption charges however as a twenty page reports that doesn't mean he's going to face those charges anytime soon it took less than fifteen minutes for the supreme court of appeal to reject the president's latest attempt to avoid corruption charges. dismissed with cause.
5:16 pm
the charges relate to allegations during a multi-million dollar deal from the one nine hundred ninety s. they were controversially dropped in two thousand and nine clearing the way for jacob zuma to become president the reason given by the prosecutor at the time was that secretly recorded phone conversations showed political interference last year the high court ruled the decision to drop the charges was irrational and they should be reinstated some legal experts say with the supreme court's now dismissing his latest appeal the ruling must be enforced his action over the last decade smack him to avoid this event. these actions of a man who has a lot to answer so in this life. i'll be writing to the national prosecuting authority that's not public prosecutions are.
5:17 pm
insisting that in fact jacob zuma be served with an indictment and appears in court . at the soonest the available. but the n.p.a. the national prosecuting authority sees it differently it says that because the supreme court didn't explicitly say the charges are reinstated that means it's able to reconsider the investigation. it's not instruct the n.p.a. it is one of the crimes that we are greeted with two of them are telling the people that are the court cannot instruct the n.p.a. to reinstate the charges it must be said that mattered to the n.p.a. for the consideration this is an important decision because it's being interpreted differently by the opposition democratic alliance which is doggedly pursued the president and the n.p.a. it's not as decisive as it might same ultimately there is still several options available to president zuma who has always strongly denied the allegations the
5:18 pm
national prosecuting authority says it will do the right thing and follow the law but some opposition parties say its current here is an ally of president jacob zuma making the prosecution of a president who is facing mounting opposition seem unlikely tinier page al-jazeera bloemfontein south africa. the un human rights chief has warned there are serious abuses happening in libya as migrant attention centers dried out hussein says thousands of people are being held in prisons where they're being tortured but the head of the guardian detention center says staff they don't have the right resources to cope six hundred thousand refugees and migrants across from libya to italy since twenty four. lost most of come here on al-jazeera prince of colombia there's justice for the killing of farm workers during a protest. hello
