twenty years this for those she dependent on russia unemployment stands at twenty percent with a third of the population living below the poverty line industries are in the hands of the oligarch business elite including the prime minister and the media's borders with azerbaijan and turkey remain closed robin first iraq i'll just give out. france's president has are still not chump to stand by the iran nuclear deal on a visit to the us a man well mcconnell said abandoning the agreement could lead to a north korea style standoff yes president has threatened to walk away from the twenty fifteen agreement ahead of talks with other western leaders next month. you have at the bit there are options i don't see it what is the what if scenario or your plan b. i don't have any plan b. for nuclear against iran so that's a question we will discuss but that's why i just want to see on nuclear let's preserve this framework because it's better than
a sort of north korean type of situation so i'm not satisfied with the situation with iran i want to fight against palestinian authority i want to contain their influence in the region so my point is to see don't leave now as a g.c. purely as long as you have not a bit of option for nuclear and let's complete it with benedict myside and original containment well i'm sure she joins us from washington d.c. hi there alan so we'll take any notice of my call. well certainly mccraw is closer to him than any other european leader the two seem to have a special chemistry something that was acknowledged by president not cold during that interview but donald trump has been against the iran deal for a very long time his critics will say it's just a reflexive impulse they hasn't actually read the deal but while he was on the campaign trail as soon as he got into the white house he made it clear that he wasn't keen on renewing the deal as he's got to do under u.s.
law and the last time he did he said this was absolutely the last time he was doing it he wanted to make sure that the others would come up with a plan that would deal with the issues he had and president mccraw mentioned them particularly the testing of ballistic missiles and iran's growing influence in the middle east but the iranians aren't just sitting back watching this all happen they have been on american television over the last few hours as well with the foreign minister giving an interview to one of the main t.v. networks and he said look to use a phrase that the americans have been using a lot in the last couple of weeks if they decide to pull out of the deal then all options are on the table and he suggested that if america pulled out of the deal that essentially the deal is broken and he said that the iranians could restart could restart their nuclear program at a much faster pace than was seen in the past we have put
a number of options for ourselves and those options are ready including options that would involve. resuming at a much greater speed. nuclear activities. and those are all. envisage within the dea and those options ready to be implemented and we would make the necessary decision. when we see fit. well you got to remember the donald trump's new national security adviser john bolton has in the past are the catered for regime change in iran and also might pompey or the man that donald trump would like to be the next u.s. secretary of state has come to cia director has also said that he thinks the around deal is a bad deal but there will be another voice in donald trump's ear over the coming days and that is angle americal the german chancellor she is going to be in tone
one of the things she will almost certainly raise is the fact that she believes that iran is still complying with the nuclear deal and the united states at this stage should not be walking away alan fischer there live from washington d.c. allan thank you. now donald trump says the north korean crisis is far from resolved he's striking a cautious no the day after welcoming a place by pyongyang to end nuclear and missile tests the leaders of north korea and south korea due to meet on friday and historic talks between kim jong un and trump could happen by june i did come out to get us a james bays was given rare access to the capital pyongyang where he asked north koreans what they think of trying. this is one way north koreans relax at the weekend. the last few days have been a diplomatic roller coaster because people enjoy the fun fair in pyongyang they're
unaware of much of what's happened ordinary people have not been told the cia director came his secretly that their leader is negotiating with the u.s. all that he's planning a face to face meeting with the country's sworn enemy donald trump so when you ask people here about trump they tell you what they've been told repeatedly in the past by the state controlled media. i don't pull my mantle every korean gets furious when we hear what trump says he threatens to dilate the entire korean ship is even a human he is a wolf. down by the river they were playing volleyball. this is where i met a young medical student. i don't have a. five year old american people but the american government i hate america imperial. imperial. why.
all the korean people. at the prison. no date venue has yet been set for the meeting between supreme leader kim jong il and president trump one report says the u.s. leader would like to meet him alone with only interpreters diplomats here have told me that would give kim who knows the nuclear issue intimately a big advantage kim jong un is half the age of donald trump but he's already run this country for more than six years and while the trumpet administration's policy on north korea has evolved during more the one year in office the north korean leader has built on the nuclear strategy he inherited from his father and previous grandpa james by al-jazeera pyongyang. still to come here on al-jazeera syrian rebels finally arrive in northern aleppo a spot of
a government evacuation deal. and how this fishing village is hoping to meet hong kong to in clean air rights to teach. hello the real warmth the wave walk that moves towards northern europe has been brushed slowly out of the way it's still going to what is a warm day for the mountains you know in london but the change in wind direction and the increasing number of clouds and thunderstorms has changed things such that monday was the only sixteen in london and that's a cold front not seeing there that's one a cross through switzerland middle of germany and up through western poland will bring rain possibly thunderstorms ahead of it we should note most likely western side of austria your mass is still nice and warm and there's a funky it's moving in things do work quite nicely behind it but it's way down to
