the i.a.e.a. certified eight times in iran was at hearing today a deal trump took a perfectly working deal and transformed it into a crisis with the decision that he made today donald trump has shifted u.s. iran policy and he's not entirely ruling out withdrawing from the agreement altogether i may do that the deal is terrible but for all his tough talk against iran donald trump has for now taken little action ceding that responsibility to the u.s. congress to take the next steps or none at all kimberly helped get al-jazeera washington . well iran's president says his country will commit to the nuclear deal as long as it's in terror and interests to do so hasan rouhani added that trump speech was full of insults and fake accusations chaumont it's what are you worried about iranian missiles what about those weapons you give every day to aggressor countries i know targeting of the oppressed people of yemen with planes and bombs that you
6:05 am
built yourself you don't have any protest about those weapons and that aggression and you targeted our oil platforms you are always the aggressor in this region our weapons our missiles of defending ourselves we have always been determined and today we are more determined to defend ourselves or transposition is raising international concern about the future the nuclear deal michaela reports from the united nations. the security council went about its daily business discussing me and mine a closed session but the abrasive speech by president trump certainly resonated in this building please raise the iran deal was codify it in a security council resolution back in two thousand and fifteen at a time the u.s. and the u.n. had different leaders of what has been agreed. if you like to state and european union which of germany you write you must be fully implemented it is very important to you i'm sorry to see what is now happening with diplomats
6:06 am
of today are sorry to be are concerned by some of the implications of this statement because we stand by the joint conference of plan of action we judge it to be a good deal which helps improve international security and we want to see it continue to remain in force others argue the u.s. cannot unilaterally amend a security council resolution and it is not a bilateral agreement it does not belong to any single country and it is not up to any single country to terminate it it is a multilateral agreement which was unanimously endorsed by the united nations security council resolution twenty two thirty one and the leaders in germany france and the united kingdom added their concern for the deal formerly known as a joint comprehensive plan of action they say preserving the j.c.
6:07 am
p.o.a.'s in our shared national security interest the nuclear deal was a culmination of thirteen years of diplomacy and was a major step towards ensuring that iran's nuclear program is not diverted for military purposes the leaders added that they were worried and willing to act over iran's ballistic missile program and what they described as its regional activities . iran has sent a formal letter of protest to the u.n. secretary general it says the islamic republic of iran will not be the first to withdraw from the deal but if its rights and interests in the deal are not respected it will stop implementing all its commitments and will resume its peaceful nuclear program without any restrictions the greatest concern that iran itself withdraws from the deal shifting what was an internationally monitored and restrained nuclear process back into the darkness. united

6:18 am
a great deal of optimism of a breakthrough the close because the people in front of the banks every morning it's so crowded you know hopeful it's even worse than before. the most or whatever amendments they will do to the agreement will not get us anywhere because the politicians are striving not to improve people's living conditions but to guarantee their own political gains and interests. libya remains deeply divided and internationally recognized a government in tripoli and a self declared one in the east each backed by coalitions of former rebels people here say it's the politicians who are responsible for the economic and security problems in libya but for the past eighteen months the politicians themselves have been blaming others for derailing this. there is disagreement over who decides on appointments to high ranking military posts with the house of representatives wanting to be able to endorse
6:19 am
a nomination. like. the house of representatives is demanding is really where according to the agreement the high ranking suffer and pass should be endorsed by the house of representatives and the high state council high ranking military and security paris should be appointed by the presidency council so the house of representatives should blackmail the presidency council. these latest talks will include any coming in to select any new prime minister charged with forming a new government but until that is actually a change in the political landscape people like these young men are likely to regain their trust in politicians. and she's eager to paly u.s. defense secretary james mattis is urging iraqi and kurdish peshmerga forces to remain focused on defeating eisel that's after kurdish forces cleared villages around care coke and accused iraqi forces of preparing to seize kurdish held oil fields near the city where tensions have been rising since the kurds voted

6:23 am
parties are protected to win most of the seats after months of violent anti-government protests the polls being seen as a test of president maduro his popularity to raise about reports from. opposition leaders in venezuela are crying foul they've just been told that more than two hundred voting stations for sunday's local elections have just been. there closing many voting centers around twelve percent of the people in this state have to vote somewhere else and they were only just notified the center was open until last night the voting machines were here. now it's closed. and believes this is part of a strategy to discourage people in the state of. what has traditionally voted for the opposition to head to the told on sunday. these elections are long overdue they should have taken place in december last year. for your position has been taken to
6:24 am
the streets to demand elections accusing the government of dismantling venezuelan institutions to hold on to power. government rejects the accusations it's told international observers that everything is on track for the vote. relocating voting centers is completely constitutional nobody is breaking the law it was announced by the electoral council decided is that in the places where there were incidents in the past. and that is legal precedent has said that the governor selected on sunday will have to be sworn in and subordinate themselves to the constitutional assembly a five hundred member legislative body that was elected almost three months ago he also said that those who are face to acknowledge it could face dismissal but. that . is illegal because it's election with field where they regularities. for the opposition the selections are
6:25 am
a chance to win some governorships and test the ground. scheduled for next year. the government is aware the world will be watching. they're using them to wash their face and. well that in venezuela there are elections this is not a dictatorship and there is no hunger here when all that isn't true. the government insists the election will be free and fair. the opposition will be hoping for some big wins any doubts over the way the vote is run and then once traders will likely take to the streets again. that is how will. south africa's supreme court of appeal has upheld the high court ruling to reinstate nearly eight hundred old corruption and fraud charges against president jacob zuma that date back to before he took office in two thousand and nine hundred pages more from one time it took less than fifteen minutes for the supreme court of appeal to
6:26 am
reject the president's latest attempt to avoid corruption charges. dismissed with costs. 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 and over the last decade smacker with this provoked him to avoid this event. he is actions of a man who has a lot to answer so in this life. i'll be writing to the national prosecuting
6:27 am
authority the public prosecutions are. insisting that in fact jacob zuma has served with an indictment and appears in court. at the soonest 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 that judge lewis did you know what instruct the n.p.a. it is one of the crimes that we are greeted polluted them are telling our people that the court has not instructed to reinstate the charges it must be said that matter to the n.p.a. for it 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 are still several options
6:28 am
available to president zuma who has always strongly denied the allegations the national prosecuting authority says it will do the right thing and follow the law but some opposition parties say it's 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 from fronting south africa asia's biggest film festival has opened in south korea a year after a political scandal almost threatened its future former president park geun to hey had a blacklist of artists that were critical of her government some filmmakers boycotted last year's event in protest well now with park impeached and out of office the stars are returning to the red carpet rubber bride reports from both sides. on the red carpet there were stars and glitz in abundance but the opening was still a little time. this is the first decent film festival since the full extent of the

documentary about the say well ferry tragedy that killed more than three hundred passengers most of them schoolchildren in twenty fourteen the film laid a lot of the blame on government negligence supporters of president try to stop the documentary being shown that here when it was shown its place in the festival budget was cut as a punishment leading some filmmakers to boycott this event they say with government interference. the festival has begun to recover helped by a new government in power and like any good plot the organizers see this as a life changing episode which makes it strong. like that at the festival or suffered scars and difficulties but in overcoming them we can take pride from not succumbing to political oppression we have pulled the festival together and move forward. hoping to emerge the hero and the happy ending
