1:21 pm
will choose from thirteen candidates for president right out today those are the latest headlines up front. responding to criticism of the hunger in foreign minister defends his government's tough policy on refugees you have three thousand five hundred fifty five refugees living in you're not taking your how can you be a refugee after a while it borders between five safe countries peter seattle to al-jazeera from its support for bashar al assad to a nuclear deal that's on the brink of failure iran is at the center of a whole host of middle east and global controversies in this outfront special at the united nations i'll challenge iran's foreign minister jobs or reef on his country's policy in syria and its approach to donald trump.
1:22 pm
foreign minister thanks for joining me on up front good to be with you last week u.s. president donald trump tweeted that he had no plans to meet iranian president hassan rouhani at the u.n. but he would quote someday in the future i'm sure he's an absolutely lovely man but you actually don't want your president to meet with trump do you why not well we're not actually that eager to meet with him because the united states is not a reliable negotiating partner. they were always saying that we want a treaty with iran now they just withdrew from the only treaty that we have with the united states because in the international court of justice ruled against them that tells you that whatever you negotiate with this president and. this is ministration they're not going to be. bound by it and that is why we're not that eager to set aside a fully negotiated document which took us almost twelve years to years of
1:23 pm
intensive negotiations between iran and the united states and be negotiated every word of one hundred fifty page document not between two countries but between just seven countries plus the european union and then it became a resolution of the security council and president trump just decided to get rid of it and then he said we need to because if it didn't have the approval of the u.s. senate i can get rid of it he was wrong because it's a security council resolution but he just got rid of a treaty that had the approval of the u.s. senate just because the i.c.j. ruled against the sanctions so on that basis then are you saying the president rouhani will never meet with donald trump are you ruling it out for the next two years in politics never say never but i believe that there is a need for a serious change in the administration that is. in my view dialogue does not require mutual trust that's
1:24 pm
a hope to hire your. treasure hold for for dialogue to take place usually dialogue is not based on mutual trust but dialogue requires mutual respect and mutual respect starts with each side respecting themselves and their own signature and as long as we do not see that in the united states in the current administration of the united states then it makes dialogue not necessary and not conducive to any positive outcome and i understand that point and it's fair to say that trump is not someone who can be necessarily trusted he's not a consistent politician clear he's not reliable and maybe he just wants a photo op i get why your hesitant but the reality is that the tension on the korean peninsula for example has gone down since kim jong. had that meeting with donald trump earlier this year trump now says they've even fallen in love why wouldn't president rouhani want trump to fall in love with him if only to reduce tensions between us you creatures basically international relations is not about
1:25 pm
love of international relations it's about reliability is about. maintaining your promises everything in international relations is based on one principle and that is in latin patterson served under you observe what you promise so it's it's stat which is required unlike the situation in korea we have a document we have a document one hundred fifty spelled out but he can't but imagine if president hollywood to meet with him and win him over in the way that kim won him over you can get him back into that valuable but he can he can and he can leave that document again as he did with the g. seven. communique he agreed to it and once he was born he has some places you never do any deal with trump well it's very difficult you can always do deeds if the other side shows that it is reliable president trump it's not it's not that difficult the nuclear deal let me tell you and let me tell president trump the nuclear deal is the best the united states can get and it's the best iran can get.
1:26 pm
and it's the best the international community can get it doesn't mean that it has everything that no either one of us wants that's what it means where i'm going as it is to president trump i wonder if it's also for your colleagues and friends and voters back home because you spent years negotiating with john kerry and your european counterparts and yet the supreme leader of your country and i was never a fan of nuclear diplomacy he said earlier this year quote with the issue of the nuclear negotiations i made a mistake in permitting al foreign minister to speak with them it was a loss for us do you agree with your supreme leader that it was a mistake for you to talk to what he said was it was it was a mistake to talk to the americans not to mistake and then his office clarified that the nuclear deal was not a mistake talking to the americans was a mistake so do you believe that it was a mistake for you to believe the americans showed particularly dismissed ration
1:27 pm
that they are not reliable that you cannot trust. their ward you cannot rely upon their signature you cannot even rely upon their treaty obligations so it's makes it a very difficult proposition to engage me but was it a mistake to come and i said it was a mistake but he believes it was a mistake you well i believe that the americans have not fulfilled their promises with respect and when i asked was it a mistake for you to sat down with the american people i said the americans did not fulfill the promise you say that trump is the problem and trump clearly is a problem he's the one who has violated the deal he's undermined it but what if what he's done of course has been welcomed by a lot of influential iranians including some of your top generals listen to general mohammad just three head of the revolutionary guards the i.r.g.c. we welcome trump's decision on pulling out of the deal he called a good omen general abdulrahim musawi head of the iranian army said thank god that america left the deal because that deal legitimize sitting at the table with
1:28 pm
america and these top generals of yours wrong. i believe there are stating the frustration of the beach is a general prostration of the iranian people than. the united states is not a reliable partner. believe that belief and you has been now. accepted. but they were never found better to go where they let's just be honest there were people in iran who didn't like the fact that you were negotiating you know that of course there were people in iran and now they feel vindicated they could be indicated and they say it's a good omen do you think it's a good omen well i don't agree with them and it's because they did with me but i was negotiating you think it's a bad omen that the u.s. i think it's not good for the international community that one country as powerful as the united states would decide to leave international agreements and it's not just a you know that they left unesco day left the climate change agreement they left
1:29 pm
nothing day late date left turn traffic part are you going to follow them is the question we know the u.s. are now leaving all these treaties with nobody's defending the u.s. here is iran now going to stay in the nuclear certainly not follow the united states because they're a bad example or are you planning to stay in the deal indefinitely but. iran has given the europeans some time because they asked us for some time to try to compensate for us departure from the new korean ago from the nuclear deal that means that iran needs to receive the economic dividends of that now they have made very strong political statements as you've seen then they have. elaborated on practical solutions now we need to see those practical solutions implemented and the next phase would be to see whether the private sector would welcome those practical solutions and would engage in those practical solutions these we will
1:30 pm
examine these. very carefully and we'll decide based on the outcome big staying in the deal for now we'll meet we believe it's a good deal ok we believe it's a deal that is in the interest of the national community in our interest we are in no hurry but we will not accept to be the only party that is complying with the let's turn to syria foreign minister iran despite its economic problems at home has spent billions of dollars every year since twenty eleven propping up bashar al assad in syria arming him sending in special forces militias hizbullah to fight for him do you believe that he has with your help now won the war in syria and can go back to being president of syria for life first of all we were in syria for a very specific purpose and that was to fight extremism we were for the same purpose in iraq it kurdistan we bend when isis was about to take over erbil we went and helped mr barak sunday we went to baghdad and help the iraqi government win
1:31 pm
over die a shrine they were. coming in and taking over the iraqi territory we have had a consistent policy of standing against extremism and extremist terror which is an existential threat for everybody in the region we have said you quoted the leader on another occasion you need to quote him on this that had we not faced . isis in syria and iraq we would have had to face it in iran or they all supported assad way before i suppose we can pretend iranian support for us and began with isis no no we we have good relations with that but the. reason i mean countries have good relations and saudi arabia had even better relations with the last from two thousand and three to two thousand and eleven so it's not the question of who supported who it's a question of who came to fight extremists ok now that the now that the fight
1:32 pm
against extremism is in its final stages it doesn't mean that extremism is gone now we need to do a number of things first we need to do it with the issue at hand and that is it we have done our best i went to ankara i went to damascus i we had a summit in tehran all within the space of less than a week and then the summit in sochi between turkey and russia to avoid bloodshed in it now we have achieved that we have a plan to have. a political not a political but a nonmilitary solution in that we are faced with a major problem and that is foreign fighters what to do with a large number of foreign fighters who are in it these are fighters that were brought into syria by out so no one is denying the presence of foreign fighters or the crimes that they have committed we've covered on the show but the problem is they're not the ones that are the only ones dying in syria when you look at the
1:33 pm
sheer suffering in syria hundreds of thousands dead millions displaced from their arms widespread torture in government prisons have been photographed airstrikes barrel bombs attacks on bakeries schools hospitals bread lines is an iran complicit in all the suffering doesn't matter what you say your goal no motive was no bouncers happening on the behest five years ago when i assumed office as foreign minister i presented a four point plan immediate cease fire inclusive government political negotiations for constitutional reform and elections based on a new constitution those who insisted. that they wanted a military solution we said from the very beginning i said in the i assess you meetings that there won't be a military solution to syria that we need to put it because solution and we've been saying that for the past five years those who have insisted on the evolution that they could win back syria that they could push bashar assad from office and they have sacrificed all these people of syria an insult or force just they have
1:34 pm
preferred they have they have cause they say when the syrian air force drops a bomb on a bakery that's the fault of the people in the bakery no no that's a false of the people who prevented the political settlement is not the fault of bashar al assad for sending in plays to bombay this is just false of the people who prevented political solution because of an illusion that they saw the syrian government has a responsibility that they could remove bashar assad from i get the argument i understand that ok i'm asking about the responsibility from work rhymes i'm talking about iranian responsibility are you something our government i'm not even money i'm not here to defend anybody i'm here to defend it i guess you're asking about it when i wanted a political settlement date if used they wanted their mess in aries these foreign fighters that today we don't know what we will do our own fighters into syria also from afghanistan you see from a pocketful don't you know that hold on there is a government in syria and last time i checked our government has a seat in the united nations those who try to overthrow that government through the
1:35 pm
use of diversion through the use of isis through the use of nostra are the ones who have created this not just crime and by the syrian government the united nations and other meeting war crimes nothing justifies war crimes and iran has had its own history of fighting a war against iraq where war crimes were committed against us there were chemical weapons were used against us and all of these champions of international agreement italian law state side and accept amounts you are completely agree ok we insisted from the very. beginning that people need to investigate who used chemical weapons we said from the very beginning that they did rebels had chemical weapons and they were in an investigation and there was no investigate on the united nations and the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons a joint investigative mechanism unanimously supported by the security council they concluded the syrian arab republic is responsible for the release of sarin at a concert who went on for the seventeenth and the russians then shut them down the
1:36 pm
same as it is on the wall and on here hold on we ask this investigative team to go to handshake one and two go to show you got to check whether these chemical weapons how does chemical weapons were used we used to this in the iran iraq war iraq used chemical weapons we asked the united nations iraq objected they went to the war front they check they verified these teams never been there they accepted the arguments of the white helmets we said from the very beginning that teams need to go under site to investigate the best prevented that from taking place because the best did not want to show because they would say the assad government is preventing not only i say investigate she asked her government invited them to go to show it out but as but as an iranian as you say who clearly are very passionate about some your country was subjected to sarin and chemical weapons and you're now allied with the government of the o.p.c. w human rights watch amnesty even hans blix not exactly a u.s.
1:37 pm
lackey has said it was probably the syrian government air force that carried this out when all of these organizations are saying assad is using chemical weapons he have said from the very beginning that we object and reject the use of chemical weapons no matter who uses them and no matter who is to be counted that is a categorical statement we don't differentiate whether it's iranians who are victims of chemical weapons or syrians who are victims of chemical weapons we condemn it categorically we've made that point very clear to president ford not let me finish we've said that chemical weapons are an x. . to us and that remains our position our problem is chemical the use of chemical weapons alleged acted on that was construed conducive for americans to use it as a pretext for an attack this is a problem we need a full investigation the o.p.c. w. under pressure from the united states and from the west refused to conduct
1:38 pm
a full investigation of reality to any investigation to find outside guilt and have been several you will always dispute notice he is your life and he's using a local weapons no no that is you iran of all countries shouldn't be supporting someone you think of course we wouldn't have had had there been an investigation. proving because we were insured but we know that showed up was not used that you know the base that was hit by the americans and the claim that this was the base that chemical weapons were launched from we know that it wasn't done from sugar ok and that is why we know that this allegation by the united states was false and we know that chemical weapons are being used we know who is using them and we believe that this is a dirty game that is being played in order to allow a credit aggression by the united states so it's easy to go to the judge alone and come back a minute but it's good to go to the judge together and see which arguments we have and the united states each time it goes to a judge it comes back a loser and then it be dropped from the court you're not going to agree on chemical
1:39 pm
weapons what about the bombs of bakeries schools hospitals documented by reporters on the ground eyewitnesses human rights groups amnesty human rights of the u.n. commission of inquiry says the syrian government is responsible for war crimes in our getting civilian area don has not participated in any activity in any populated area and we would never do so in the future we condemn any attack against idiots do you condemn the syrian government weaken tightening bakeries school we'll send them any attack against civilians no by the syrian government no matter who does but i'm asking no matter mostly about zero matter who does it ok but i'm asking about the syrian government no matter who does so you won't condemn the syrian government i condemn anybody using chemical weapons i do not like unsettles and else but i condemn any ok any government but at the same time condemn groups who use a billion says yes and the u.s. and the u.s. can deny rebels as well they condemn the syrian government and rebels asked she ok
1:40 pm
let me ask you this question you said very clearly earlier that last time you checked at the u.n. the syrian government the government of syria they invited you in your there with the syrian approval as is there as are the russians so does that mean you support the saudi attacks in yemen because they've been invited in by the government of yemen and the president of yemen on that logic on that basis hold on. the government we're not bombing anybody in yemen we're not killing innocent human beings so you're saying lying militias have killed elizabeth you mean the saudi arabia is bombing yemen on a daily basis killing people in yemen and refusing any opportunity to engage in peace talks we have offered a peace plan for syria we offered a peace plan in the yemen but but the saudis rejected the peace of thirty in syria forty years ago they rejected the peace out there in yemen three years ago hoping to be able to have a military victory in three weeks and they continue to bomb innocent people in the
1:41 pm
and no one's defending that and what's interesting is you're reminding me that i came to new york a couple years ago interviewed the saudi ambassador to the united nations and i said why are you in yemen why are you there bombing all these people and he said we're invited by the government we're fighting terrorism and all of the reports of civilian casualties are disputed and when i hear you talking about syria i feel it's the same argument though it's iranians using the same logic to syria the saudis are using in yemen that's what it sounds like is it the same argument. i mean people many people say the same things but is it the same argument sounds very similar and it does it yes does it that it's is is saudi arabia fighting i think and are they killing seven million young no no yes are they fighting the syrian government buying for your feelings even are they fighting terrorists in yemen they say they are there they are but those are sort of no no no people are useless and most are and there are internationally recognized risk groups who reach
1:42 pm
internationally recognized terrorist group the saudis are fighting in yemen but this is again a dangerous i know this is a dangerous and you know if you because you support hamas hezbollah which they are not which allows which the e.u. in the e.u. in the us calls terrorists everyone calls an enemy terrorism normals that is the problem there are organizations that are recognized as terrorist by the united nations security council and the last i checked therefore organisations that are supported by saudi arabia are taliban. and die so let's talk about that and other groups there is no consensus saudi arabia is supporting them we are fighting them ok so let's settle on that and let's not just try to confuse they say you're supporting who these were fired rockets into saudi arabia and the and un groups of pointed out human rights massive human rights abuses by with these and the un you see first of all who thieves have enough rockets of their own to fire into saudi arabia they don't need us anybody who's bombed out of existence
1:43 pm
would find a way to defend themselves who he's defended themselves yemenis defended themselves long before anybody was in iran to help them. they have been there for a thousand years they have forty aggressions they have defeated the russians they will defeat this aggression this war should not have started we told the saudis that they did not want need to start this war there was a political settlement that could have been reached they wanted a military victory they needed a military victory for domestic reasons for very childish domestic reasons and they continued that they could have stopped this war three and a half years ago so they faded to do something that was that in their own interest because they were hoping you remember in syria seven years ago they said we will have. we will pray in damascus by the end of ramadan it's been
1:44 pm
seven ramadan since then they said we will have a big tree in yemen inquiry weeks we've been if you are into the fourth year we're almost out of time i do have to ask you about the domestic front you have you're seen as part of the kind of reformist pragmatic moderate part of iranian politics you've called iran a democracy you've called it a democratic system in the past and of course your president rouhani has been elected twice overwhelmingly by the iranian people but his boss the supreme leader of iran ayatollah common i wasn't elected by the people has been in office for nearly thirty years and if you insult him you risk going to prison in iran how is that democratic by any definition i question your premise because the leader in iran is also elected. please check our constitution twenty nine years ago no no and he can be removed any day by a body by a party that elected him and that party was elected by the people every country has
1:45 pm
their own the assembly of experts you simply have x. but the guardian council which he appoints has a veto over that you know has a veto over the assembly of expert in picking the members of the other live expert on but he's not popularly elected by any definition of the word and if you look out you when he was actually popular he totally elected for a twenty nine year total no popularly elected twice was present yes and then i'm going to speak to the iranian president elect ok saying that it really isn't and then we we have a constitution that was approved twice by a referendum in that constitution that is a constitutional process and in that constitutional process it is an office of the supreme leader and that this is elected and then. observed boy. this is the constitutional mechanism twenty nine years i mean some some people countries democratic countries for longer than that but it doesn't mean that there are they're not a democracy the last question for

a minister for nearly forty years now the u.s. and iran once great allies have been the best of enemies both sides have their grievances of course is there not to talk about trump here but looking into the future beyond trump is there any common ground beyond nuclear issues beyond from the you can see the united states an islamic republic coming together as well once the united states abandons its obsession that it wants to defeat iran in the region which won't happen because we are in the region we are not in some seven thousand miles away from from our home we are at home and that is why our influence in the region is to stay and the united states needs to recognize the reality is the united states failure has been its lack of recognition of the realities in our region and probably to rugby world so once the you create that. i mean once they make that necessary jump to reality then everything can change foreign minister thank you for joining me from good to be with you thank you.

1:51 pm
address this topic for the first time and we are expecting as one source told me a very strong quote unquote response from turkey with regards to this front on their sovereignty essentially a crime taking place inside turkey by foreign nationals with what would seem to be impunity and i think our would not want that to go away unchallenged obviously it is very challenging for the turks because they do enjoy strong diplomatic relationships with saudi arabia that is one of the reasons why turkish officials did not comment right away off to the disappearance of kushal ji what i understand from speaking to several of them that they were exhausting all diplomatic methods to try and find some sort of way out of this crisis but in light of or rather in the absence of any reciprocity or goodwill from riyadh it seems that they are going to disclose everything that also falls in line with information that al jazeera has that there will be within the next day or so or video material and other evidence

being disclosed by turkish security officials which will show how for the show the details of the assassination of the crime that has been committed so as far as obviously the case of this saudi journalists concern it is extremely sad news that he has been killed and aside from that there is obviously also a lot of concern with regards to the diplomatic fallout that's will undoubtedly ensue. well we've been speaking to how little josh on his executive director of the arab center and a friend of jamal. i knew a time out very well actually for more than three decades i knew him as a young journalist and as a counselor to the saudi government on many occasions visiting the kingdom which i used to do quite frequently two or three times a year or at least. met with him and his colleagues particularly in the media to

learn about the latest developments in the region particularly our focus at that time was on us saudi relationship he was very keen and intelligent smart analysts of that relationship and it was always a pleasure. to see him and to compare notes with him this recent event it was an arab center briefing that he did for us last year in twenty seventeen upon moving to the united states to virginia. for protection if you will because he felt threatened back home in saudi arabia and we gave him the opportunity to come and discuss though he sent changes in the kingdom he was not necessarily a dissident i disagree with that description he was a loyal saudi citizen he had his own vision of what the country should be doing that type of freedoms needs that type of reform it needs and maybe in the final
