all in pretty good shape but it's apparent this year needs to be very carefully managed as multiple threats begin to loom on the horizon. stories generate thousands of headlines. three different angles from different perspectives. that russia was responsible for the separate the spin from the facts that's why on god's. the misinformation from the journalism the issues here go far beyond one data mining company and one election with the listening post on al-jazeera getting to the heart of the matter if. the bill calls you today and says let's have talks would you accept facing reality what do you think. there are two people the peace for unification is the only option for south korea hear their story and talk to al-jazeera.

the french president's heading to the u.s. determined to convince donald trump to stick with the iran nuclear deal emanuel macron says abandoning the agreement could lead to a north korea style standoff mccraw made the comments in an interview with a favorite t.v. network of the us president fox news out of the three day trip trump has a three weeks to decide whether to follow through with repeated threats to walk away from the twenty fifteen agreement. what do you have as a bigger option i don't see. what is a what if scenario or your plan b. i don't have any plan b. for nuclear against 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 again i'm not satisfied with the situation was iran i want to fight against ballastic may find i want to
11:03 am
contain their influence in the region so my point is to say don't leave now. as long as you have not a bitter regime for nuclear and let's complete it with benefit me sign an original containment while the strong or poor between mccraw and trump will be tested on iran as well as other key foreign policy issues can be help from the white house. no european leader enjoys a better bond with u.s. president donald trump than french president emmanuelle. mccraw has carefully cultured their relationship inviting trump to paris for bastille day celebrations playing to trump's well known admiration for the military the result troubles consulted with matt on the telephone with an any other world leader that ross says he even managed to convince trump to prolong u.s. involvement in syria. president trump was saying the united states of america had
11:04 am
a duty to disengage from syria i assure you we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long term the white house denies shifted in syria position iterating trump hopes to soon withdraw u.s. forces. arrives in washington on monday for a three day visit which includes tribes first state dinner as president. his influence over the u.s. president will be tested on issues ranging from syria to the future of the iran nuclear deal. iran maintains it's in compliance with. the twenty fifteen agreement which the u.s. signed with iran and european allies makarov favors keeping the deal as does german chancellor angela merkel who also visits the white house this week the iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transactions the united states has ever entered into but trump has vowed to withdraw by mid may unless european allies fix
11:05 am
certain aspects of the agreement including improving inspections of iran's nuclear programs so far that hasn't happened trumps recent appointment of john bolton to national security adviser and his nomination of mike pompei oh to be secretary of state both of whom have criticized the agreement have caused even more concern about the deals future in less than a month donald trump must decide whether to allow iran sanctions to be put back in place affectively killing the deal that makes the influence of emanuel macro and angle a merkel pivotal in ensuring whether or not the iran agreement remains intact kimberly help at al-jazeera at the white house ok let's get more on what the french are expecting out of this visit by emmanuel micro-life not to paris my colleague david chase david could this be seen in france as the beginning of a new special relationship perhaps. well i
11:06 am
think everybody might say this is an odd couple both psychologically and politically both men are described as mavericks they have common interests because of their respective positions but there's little common ground between them i think what's happening is the fact that because the british prime minister to reason may who's supposed to have that special relationship has been buried by briggs it and also the german chancellor angela merkel has spent six months trying to form a grand coalition so that's left a vacuum of leadership inside the european union and president emmanuel mackerel has leapt into the gap with alacrity but as to how far he can actually achieve anything there's a great skepticism here in paris about the fact that he he might be like tony blair getting too close to president trump and getting very little in return and that
11:07 am
that relationship which he is developing could end up politically tarnishing here here here in paris his image and his policies and of course he's got so many fights on his hand in paris anyway but he still believes that he can persuade the president trump to try and accommodate in many areas the european union's point of view david thanks very much. ok we have a development story for you coming to us out of the belgian capital brussels the paris attack suspect up islam has been found guilty of quote an attempted terrorist murder during a shootout in belgium in twenty sixteen natasha butler is our correspondent following that one for us this is just developing as we come to natasha just get us right up to speed what else do we know. well that news has just come in actually as you've been speaking to that has been
11:08 am
found guilty of attempted murder in connection with that shootout with police which took place back in march twenty sixth day now we don't know yet the sentence that he will be given we're waiting to hear that but he was facing up to twenty years in jail as was his codefendant sophia and i hear now i dislike is not in this court here in brussels he decided to stay away those were the words of his lawyer and that really wasn't much of a surprise because back in february when he was on trial. decided to only attend on the first day he made it very clear indeed that he thought the whole trial the whole process was something of a false he said the muslims are rarely judged fairly that silence would be his defense and that he wasn't going to answer any questions and just remind us of the timeline here natasha this is not the nov twenty fifth dean attacks in the french capital because the slums name was in the frame is in the frame for those as well
11:09 am
that was the better clan theater attack. that's right and this case here in brussels is linked to this police shootout. and his codefendant sophia and i hearing now that took place in march twenty sixth seen here in brussels and at the time was one of was well i should say he was europe's most wanted man he was on the run off to the paris attacks which took place in november twenty fifth now at the moment i will learn about this verdict from his cell he is in a jail in france a high security prison and he's on twenty four hour watch in solitary confinement and he is there until the trial into the paris attacks which is expected to take place next year in twenty nineteen now so far i've disarm has refused to answer any questions when he has been interrogated by french investigators will be interesting
11:10 am
to see now if that changes but judging from his attitude when he was in the belgian court in february of this trial it would not be surprising if he wished to remain silent going forward so just to sum up for us and what happens to him and his kohak used over the coming year or two. also given his kohak he has yet to be given his sentence we're still waiting for that to be handed down by this belgian court whatever happens he will remain in belgium likely you would imagine that he would also face a sentence as for solid decide he will remain in jail in france he will remain there until that trial into the paris attacks those attacks which took place on the event twenty fifty one hundred thirty people were killed sala up to slum is the only surviving suspect the township thanks very much. we move on and
