around seventy families who lost their homes in that earthquake still live in this camp. that the government raised our hopes and then abandoned us politicians have promised that they won't allow a repeat of what happened after the earthquake in one thousand eight hundred five but the cost complexity of i was in hundreds of people living in camps is a major task and one that many people here think the government failed. stories generate thousands of headlines cooperation with different angles from different perspectives. that russia was responsible for this separate the spin from the facts that's why on. 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.
7:01 pm
decision day u.s. president on the trump says he's ready to announce what he'll do about the iran nuclear deal. hello there i'm joe now this is al jazeera live from london also coming up. rock star status i mean years new prime minister is given a hero's welcome at a mass rally in the country's capital. lover whose is through new cracks in the ground in hawaii destroying more homes and engulfing stranded vehicles. and we visit a wildlife park in south africa where a mining project is threatening conservation and tourism.
7:02 pm
in the next couple of hours the next hour in fact u.s. president all trump is set to announce whether he will pull out of the iran nuclear deal with drawing from the agreement would mean renewing sanctions which were lifted when the deal was signed in two thousand and fifteen iran's president as warned the u.s. will face consequences if it pulls out on tuesday house on rouhani insisted iran will stand on its own feet regardless of sanctions. at. this government's plan from day one has been based on having honest good constructive and effective interactions with the world as we consider this a win win situation useful for others and for us as well well it may result that in some exceptional situations from time to time someone may take power in a country and cause an exceptional situation these kinds of things happen on the world states and we will get past it we may have problems for two or three months
7:03 pm
but anyway we will get past the problem our basic policy of having constructive interactions it's working with the worlds. well let's go live to our white house correspondent kimberly hell could standing by there waiting for a trump press conference in about two hours time now and a last minute phone call kimberly between the president and the french president emmanuel macron about this deal all we have from the french side is that they discussed issues related to peace and stability in the middle east that's pretty bland language it doesn't offer much hope does it of of a last minute reprieve. no and certainly on our end here in the united states we're getting conflicting reports about that phone call that happened at fourteen g.m.t. between the u.s. and french presidents some media outlets reporting that in fact on top is made the decision to withdraw and re impose sanctions others reporting that there will not be a withdrawal but there would be a reimposing of sanctions i think it's safe to say we're all going to have to wait till eight hundred g.m.t.
7:04 pm
to hear the president's decision but certainly there's no question that there is already concern jonah about how this could hurt u.s. relationships with european allies how this could intensify some tensions between the united states and russia and china that are also parties to this agreement but certainly what can be surmised from all of this is the fact that donald trump seems to be trying to send a message one that started back in january when he gave that window of opportunity to european allies to try and fix in his words what he thought were some of the problems with the deal namely concerns about ballistic missile testing the fact that this deal did not address concerns beyond twenty twenty five and even some of the regional concerns with regard to military activities by iran in the region so certainly it appears that despite some of the pleadings by european allies here at the white house very high level diplomacy the president may be listening to some of
7:05 pm
his more hawkish advisers leaning towards withdrawal of the deal something he's been laying the ground work for in recent weeks and months but again the final decision we won't know for a couple of hours and in the meantime kimberly's has been pretty strong a strong rebuke by president trump of john kerry the former secretary of state who was so instrumental in in concluding that deal in the first place he's been working behind the scenes in some way to try and save the deal mr trump not happy at all about that does that indicate the level of antipathy alongside those other concerns you've outlined there of a piece of international legislation effectively reached under his predecessors watch president obama. i think you bring up a really good point it has sort of two parts in terms of the answer the first is donald trump campaigned on this on the fact he said repeatedly in the twenty sixteen presidential election campaign that in fact this was a bad deal that was wrong for the united states hurt american interests so
7:06 pm
withdrawing from the deal with certainly fulfill that can campaign promise but there's another part to it and that's what you've touched on is this wanting to criticize his predecessors the obama administration brock obama and the man who negotiated this deal in twenty in twenty fifteen the former secretary of state john kerry he tweeted not only on monday but again on tuesday criticizing john kerry saying he's hurting the country by trying to salvage this deal and reach out to the iranians again this is sort of put speaks to the fact that donald trump very much wants to appear in control and he certainly is intending to do that leaving us hanging until he makes that announcement at eight hundred g.m.t. ok kimberly we'll leave it there and we'll be back with you in the hours to come kimberly help of a lot of the white house thank you. a dense web of written agreements and deadlines make up the iran nuclear deal which took years to agree the deal was finally signed off by iran in two thousand and fifteen with the five permanent un security council members as well as germany and the european union
7:07 pm
a week later it was unanimously endorsed by a un security council resolution iran agreed to reduce the number of its centrifuge machines by from twenty thousand to about five thousand for ten years centrifuges are needed to enrich uranium a material that could be used to make nuclear bombs iran also promised to enrich a maximum three point six seven percent of its uranium for fifteen years additional limits were put on its research and development of advanced centrifuges iran also removed the core of its main heavy water reactor and filled it with cement it's not allowed to build any new reactors under the deal for fifteen years to be sure iran is complying inspectors from the international atomic energy agency have access to its nuclear sites in exchange for all of this the us the e.u. and the un agreed to lift sanctions but they can be imposed again if iran is found to be violating the deal with iran's large or oil and gas output has helped the
7:08 pm
country survive decades of economic isolation it's something iran's leaders hope they can do again. the reports from tehran. from this fairground it's difficult to tell that iran is going through a diplomatic crisis. iran's leaders are highlighting the merits of the country's century old oil industry and they're looking for foreign investment to the tune of two hundred billion dollars. i i. i have a recommendation for foreign companies that are here if these companies want to have an important role in the market of iran in the region they should try to cooperate with iranian companies and do their job as they have chosen iran as a partner iran is not a country one could overlook in the global market and energy sector they may delay or development but relying on enormous domestic potential cod willing we will continue our plans. but in the face of us sanctions it's a hard sell the fate of the joint comprehensive plan of action more commonly known
7:09 pm
as the twenty fifteen nuclear deal has become the most important factor for doing business with iran but the issue is so provocative no one was willing to speak about it on camera there are many european countries represented here but the goods are smaller than they were in previous years especially right after the nuclear deal was signed many of the exhibitors we spoke to say they like doing business with iranians and see an enormous potential in iran's market but for now no big deals are being signed and no one is making any real money it would seem that scare tactics by washington are having the desired effect. iranian companies here are worried about more bad economic weather but say this is just the storm before the calm beneath it. international companies to come to iraq but in the absence of them stated we can not solve the trade or existing facilities but
7:10 pm
develop the void created on it just fits. companies like this one operated by the iranian revolutionary guard corps will no doubt continue to play an important part in the country's economic strategies. every day americans make a new excuse they want to conclude every year in a way to benefit themselves so should we give up no we are a powerful country with great resources in the world for example in gas we rank first and this is also true of other resources iran's growth potential makes it a difficult market for investors to ignore so there is some optimism one businessman told us there is always a light at the end of the tunnel but the burning of bridges between washington. is only making that tunnel longer.
