animated debate in the council chamber before the discussions began their members taken aback by the lack of notice from the u.s. in calling for this public debate the u.s. ambassador adamant that it was essential iran be called to account if the founding principles of this institution mean anything we will not only hear their cry we will finally answer the iranian regime is now on notice the world will be watching what you do russia had vehemently opposed what it saw as an unacceptable intervention in iran's internal affairs but also argued that the us had another motive in pushing for this meeting used to meet with the blueprint the real reason for convening today is not to protect human rights or promote the interests of the iranian people but rather a veiled attempt to continue to undermine the iranian nuclear agreement would have an agreement that the french ambassador maintained in his speech was crucial also
distancing himself from the u.s. decision to call these discussions with your president but it is up to the arena and to the iranians to pursue the path of peaceful dialogue a dialogue based on full respect for the fundamental rights and freedoms of the rain people given speaking rights and the council iran's ambassador described the u.s. action as yet another attempt at political destabilization following such acts of disruption take in. u.s. administration as flouting international law and this is spect in the practices of civilized behavior in international politics this administration is not the spirit leaching for every restaurant that keeps it afloat that is a long history of u.s. bullying at the u.n. but this is. the poster's example. and indeed at the end of the discussion
members got up perhaps more divided than when they had. mike hanna al-jazeera united nations. say rex tillerson has also been talking about iran specifically the nuclear deal he says the trumpet ministration is looking for ways to keep the u.s. in the agreement congress is working on new legislation that could bolster in full support measures. i want to see just. for this one of the other one is not made a final decision was. by the twelfth but if we just call. the show for the fun. of the first is. to say is a political party with the truman national security project in the form of a bomber administration she says any legislation is a political move to shield trump from having to deal with iran agreement a tool and the reason why donald trump hates it is because when he ran for
president you know he called it quote unquote the worst steal our ever but what we've seen is that really he's not able to come up with a better deal he's certainly not able to in the case of north korea and so what they're trying to do politically is just prevent their president from having to be the one to sign off on it to sign off on it every six months which is the current law and so what he's done is he's punted it to congress and they're looking at ways that they can be creative now to essentially throw the ball into congress's court without essentially scrapping the deal altogether and so what he'll do rhetorical as hell call that effects. has been a third day of rallies in support of enron's government one of the largest was in the capital tehran where demonstrations chanted u.s. slogans but i'm in washington for the rest of it reports from tehran. another day of pro-government rallies in iran seemingly part of a two pronged approach to keep detractors off the streets
a large show of public support and a heavy police presence across the country with critics inside and outside iran predicting the downfall of the islamic republic the government is determined to publicly project the power of the state at friday prayers in the capital to her on a senior cleric reminded people of iran's real enemies who he says are behind the unrest in the country let's say announced this is what is happening saudi arabia gave the money the u.s. did the planning it was coordinated from u.s. control very names and have gotten weapons are being transferred little by little to iran they wanted to finish is in february that was the plan but he also sympathized with public demands for better economic conditions it had all thought to have the protests was right those who lost their money and it's not too long protest for them people are saying death to high prices we're saying not what people are saying should be heard people's rights shouldn't be missed in the middle
of this mess. meanwhile what was essentially a leaderless protest movement with competing demands seems to have fizzled out but on social media sites people are still sharing week old videos of anti-government demonstrations. protests last week were the boldest challenge to rather stablish lives in nearly a decade but crowd sizes only ever numbered in the thousands in contrast in two thousand and eight more than a million people came out into the streets to protest the reelection of president mahmoud ahmadinejad but for now activists who oppose the government have been sidelined by much larger crowds who support. us president trump has gone on another tirade calling the author of a book detailing his first year in office a total. that's already been a hit with leaders with american bookstores on able to keep fire and fury stocks and on the shelves trump slams the work as phony and full of lies kind of

on into the early part of next week meanwhile the rather stormy weather will continue across western parts and there we go temperatures in london recently getting up to fifteen degrees celsius temperature of five degrees on sunday but i think at least for northern parts of england across much of wales into scotland or not it should be lousy fine dry and sunny not too dry and sunny across the north of morocco some rather wet sand at times wintry weather coming in here about with the top temperature of around fourteen over the next couple of days looking a little step two for algeria's but fine and dry for egypt.

a warning by organised crime against the political parties the problem here is impunity and the phenomenon of political violence the more this will continue because there is no punishment. experts say that the rising level of violence in mexico is not only putting the lives of political candidates at risk but could also be frightening voters which could damage the democratic process less political participation less third out. because of fear less political you know less people voting. and all of that and is hinders the strength of a democratic system from the. local there are over three thousand four hundred elected positions up for grabs in the upcoming elections but it's candidates for local posts who are especially vulnerable targets by organized crime twenty one local public servants were murdered in two thousand and seventeen which was also a record breaking year for homicides in mexico the concern now is over the potential for yet another exceptionally violent year as we approach the two

mission is now fully focused on improving the justice system. we met the un representative in port au prince who says the. task ahead it is an enormous challenge but we have started trying already to work in local. tribunals of premier installs and help them with the people who've been in prolonged pretrial detention for the longest period of time to actually appear before a judge. and it's not just what's happening in the prisons but also the conduct of security forces. a police operation last month in the grand ravine area of port au prince left at least nine people dead some inside a school the victims included a professor and an armed security guard among others human rights groups fear an increase in abuses and they need to confront impunity they need to hold people to account even high level high ranking people so that there isn't an abuse of the law
