2:17 pm
fire and fury speeches also he threatened to totally destroy north korea concerns and about what south korea should do there's now a debate going on here some people in south korea believe they should take full affirmative action some people say they should push america to redeploy tactical nuclear but this would also take control of their own forces because there's an agreement with the u.s. in the event of conflict. to take control of the south korean forces people not to change also there is a debate going on not widespread views that are held him supported bush some people are calling for south korea to develop his own you could turn so the stakes of raised here and all those present trouble is being. we have to say that he's also being uprooted the people here are very realistic they understand very much that america is the benefactor and defender of south korea and they see that his
2:18 pm
support is essential. and then resnick as a u.s. foreign policy and security analyst he says that this account at a crucial time for the two allies. president trumps of detroit will skepticism about the value of american allies prime minister op they really wants to make sure that when president trump is in the region when he is in japan and that he continues to be able to rely on the united states and its security umbrella lot a time when most korea is becoming more and more of a threat to japan so in light of trump sort of a long time skepticism of the value of american allies. really wants to solidify the alliance given his lack of interest in policy given his reluctance to trump well he's easily irritated i think that it's going to be difficult for u.s. allies and strategic partners to get much out of this visit i think they're just
2:19 pm
hoping that if he doesn't do anything to disrupt relations. with their respective states especially japan this is the probably the most critical u.s. ally in the region. and breaking news to bring you here on al-jazeera the lebanese prime minister saad hariri has resigned this happening in the last few minutes there was a statement that was televised on state t.v. and live and on it were he blamed hezbollah for destabilizing the region that is all we know right now as you can imagine we are making phone calls gathering as much as we can but the lebanese prime minister saad hariri turning his resignation stepping down keep it here on al-jazeera as we gather more information to bring to you on that in the meantime speaking of hezbollah and iran iran has for the first time displaced displayed rather a ballistic missile is part of events to mark the thirty eighth anniversary of the u.s. embassy hostage crisis this
2:20 pm
a ballistic missile stood among the thousands who gathered outside a former u.s. embassy in tehran a crowd also burned at the chase and photos of u.s. president donald trump tension is high between iran and the u.s. after president trump refused to recertify the nuclear deal with western powers same as robbie has more from tehran. this event celebrates the taking of the u.s. embassy and nine hundred seventy nine by students of the revolution that overthrew the shah at the time and saw the rise of the islamic republic of iran has no words today with the rejection of the nuclear deal by the united states and the aggressive rhetoric coming out of the white house u.s. president donald trump what would have been an otherwise annual event is taking on the new significance here in iran today. events of those days are just as important today to these iranians as they were thirty years ago not just because they want to be defiant towards american foreign policy but because this place and what happened
2:21 pm
here the overtaking of this symbol of american might in the middle east at the time by doing students you would see the mindset of resistance that is now moving into the fabric of iran's national identity and the history of the. place informs how these people and their government are planning their collective future it has to be said many of the young men and women here on any other day might be found enjoying burgers and music in one of the many western style coffee shops and restaurants that are popular in iran. and it's said appreciation of american style culture that worries the government in the days leading up to this event civilian and military leaders were giving speeches saying again and again so that people don't forget for iran america is an oppressed. returning to this story that is breaking now lebanese prime minister saad hariri has resigned saying a few key things in his statement that he senses
2:22 pm
a plot to target his life also planning has we do now have on the phone our correspondent. who is live for us in southern lebanon making phone calls gathering more information on this and what do we know. don't tell you you're in lebanon with the allies. but not going to. bed with only being in the job since december of last year still hasn't even begun the cold war for a year yet and here he is responding. quite clearly that he was blaming hezbollah for his words creating a different reality in the middle east he also pointed the finger at iran for its own will we can be iraq. and also as you rightly pointed out he has credible the years that life was that bridge the risk of
2:23 pm
a just escalation but since you have to remember that saddam is a procedure very particular area for a well known leader here and that the money was fascinated in two thousand and five the babe ruths. turns surgery has words own life certainly very well be connected to that whatever the case and as you think it very spies in aspen from history has said to be down as prime minister so and i realize in piazza we don't know a lot said this with a surprise no signs no inkling no chatter from anybody that something like this might be coming that he was considering it. it has to be said all politics but been on the are very complex very hard to predict and of course. very the five is not only divided because domestically that are a should watch for geo political as well. as part of the future
2:24 pm
it's the party that is very closely aligned to saudi arabia of course buys gibran rahman rabia of course it's for five all they are essentially called the boards the various regions around the world and at least politically have a false teacher as well very well documented and very well known and many are will take the fact that mr hariri had stayed to separate the two saudi arabia in the last five days as an indication as to why he is behind this presentation at this stage it is still speculation however the speculation is that the study leadership has suring mr hariri to step down from just rolls even the sox for a very long time they've been very angry with the goal that has plenty not only by the month but also in the area but of course that needs to fall and the growing
2:25 pm
region as well this of course was for what it was finished a year ago when your previous especially because that action on the weapon on or just disagrees been or what they said has foliage growing influence again preference in mr statement barracks in which the study arabia sensually principle hundreds of million dollars the military aid the weapon on ending the day to be distant from toppling the leprechauns so the idea is that if the building now do you stand off thoughts on the sort of defensive but again i think very few people expected to resign as soon as the early. and has given that it was seems to be such a surprise as you said how do we anticipate this playing out next in the coming hours who stands to gain from this or is it just really going to be a wait and see thing. well obama is no stranger to political instability but really
2:26 pm
what we're seeing here is something of a vacuum. how the stock should be going bills frankly at this stage anybody guess the vibe is that going on there are so divided four or i think you know roughly around two years without the president michelle obama called again early these jura go so the concern is we coul long will be big how long could be prime minister should be big books one would imagine the first movie be very crisp each song to fill that seat but at this stage no idea who that might be how to speak layout and who's going to speak all we also need to point out or rather i mean. we're about lebanon on operates on a very black political system which politics especially divided along that so whoever is the next prime minister of lebanon will have. to be. just like the
2:27 pm
presidential office come from the christian sects and so on and so forth does not also are divided in this way but what does lead to the house looks out over the next couple of days really anyone's guess but one could imagine it falls off ok and we're going to let you go get some more information on this breaking news history kept the lebanese prime minister saad hariri has resigned people calling it a surprise that saying that they did not know citing in his statement he cited concerns about interference from hezbollah iran and also concerns about a plot on his life so as you can imagine we are gathering as much information as we can on what this means what and what is next so keep it here on al-jazeera for that the u.s. government has released a report that details the growing threat of climate change from human action but the national climate assessment is sharply at odds with the trumpet ministrations
2:28 pm
policy mike hanna reports from washington. please president trump has publicly described the concept of climate change as a hoax and that was one of his reasons for announcing his intention of withdrawing the u.s. from the paris climate accord the paris climate accord is simply the latest example of washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the united states but he's directly contradicted by a report that maintains the u.s. is experiencing more heat and rainfall events that twenty five coastal cities experienced more flooding and that sees could rise by between one and four feet by the end of the century all a consequence says that a port of human action one of those who had to sign off on the report is a director of the environmental protection agency yet at his center to come from asian hearing scott pruitt indicated he too was a climate change skeptic let me say to you science tells us that the climate is
2:29 pm
changing and then human activity in some manner impacts that change the ability to measure with precision the degree and extent of that impact and what to do about it are subject to continued debate and dialogue pruett has led the way in promoting fossil fuel production and rolling back several obama era rules aimed at curbing carbon output and limiting greenhouse gas emissions action the report says contribute to global warming the director of the e.p.a. did not stop there he ordered the removal of climate science pages that for two decades had featured on the agency's website. well the reason some had feared the national climate assessment would be blocked by an administration it contradicts but instead to piers that rather than prevent publication of the report president trump and his fellow climate change doctors have simply decided to ignore it mike hanna al-jazeera washington. and
