says most are in need of refugee status and urges other countries not to deport them. and clashes in jakarta over the result of indonesia's controversial presidential election. the acting u.s. defense secretary says that there will be no war with iran and the recent deployment of additional forces in the gulf has deterred possible attacks by teheran patrick shanahan made the comments following a classified briefing to members of the house of representatives mike hanna reports . congress has been demanding more information for weeks and finally it was provided by members of the trumpet ministration secretary of state mike pump aoe in the acting secretary of defense patrick shanahan held separate reefing sessions in both the house and the senate. patrick shanahan arguing that the recent deployment . to carry a strike force to the region has played
5:02 am
a role in controlling the crisis we have to turn attacks based on our repository of assets to turn attacks against american forces. our biggest focus at this point is to prevent iranian miscalculation. that we do not want the situation to escalate. this is about deterrence not about war. or not about going to war we're ready to respond if we have to the best thing to happen is for everybody to calm down and iran to back off and i'm hoping that this show of force will result in deescalating not escalating nobody is talking about a military solution to the current friction with the iranians i haven't heard anybody discuss that r.t. thank you all very much but the briefing still did not convince skeptical democrats make no mistake this president has a business tracing are itching for
5:03 am
a confrontation with iran i believe that a war with iran would be. an absolute disaster. on the wall with iraq and i hope the american people told this administration that we will not go to war in iraq underlying this crisis the decision by president donald trump to unilaterally pull out of the 2050 nuclear deal with iran and as the briefings were taking place iran was announcing it had quadrupled its production of enriched uranium this many democrats a consequence of a president rejecting a negotiated deal with no thought as to what should replace it mike hanna al jazeera washington. as a former cia officer he says the coals for deescalation. tensions must be echoed by president donald trump. the acting defense secretary is
5:04 am
a rare reasonable official in the ministration of india logs and incompetence so i think that is probably true that tensions are a little lower and the problem is that you have to the extent you have a coherent series of tactics i won't call you on the strategy they are those of the neoconservatives which gave us the invasion of iraq and it is easy to threaten and to break things for the united states but it's always infinitely infinitely harder to build them or achieve another more positive end and the approach almost always forgets that in any conflict even if one side like united states is vastly more powerful than the other the other side gets to play in the game too and we can't no one can control events but i think that the
5:05 am
defense secretary's statement is a positive one in a rather absurd situation. u.s. sanctions are making life in iran increasingly difficult iranians say that it's the devalued currency that's pressing problem reports from. iran ramadan is usually a time of spiritual reflection charity and family but for a 2nd here in a row as iranians began a month of fasting there was escalating pressure from the united states. every day they face angry exchanges with american leaders a buildup of u.s. forces on their doorstep warnings to commercial flights in or near iranian airspace and threats from arab neighbors saudi arabia the u.a.e. and. all that on top of an economy in freefall on the day it's one of these guys that's it will trump or america can do anything you're on is not iraq even though
5:06 am
they are strong iran's armed forces will stand against them that's going to get. them is on your mark we think military is as strong as past but it isn't we should never face america directly i'm afraid because we keep saying they can't do anything they finally well and the siege of the islamic revolutionary guard corps that took to the streets in the revolution and changed everything something iranian people speratus to that level but it isn't. a u.s. carrier strike group deployed close by in the arabian sea was for some a chance for a little levity a widely shared post has the abraham lincoln up for sale on a website for used goods. but for many talk of war is a real concern that some hope can be resolved through dialogue because when i get back in the 2nd edition i think if they enter into talks it will be better because this is the 21st century and we should avoid war now is the time for dialogue jank
5:07 am
even as it is a war in my opinion is not good for us now negotiation is the best our government could overlook so. issues if this pressure could be reduced speaking to a group of young artists iranian president hassan rouhani said he always remains open to the idea of dialogue but not with us bullies even if it means taking on the world alone. iranians too young to remember when their country last fought a war say fighting america seems unreal. yet many say they have more faith in the country's strategic defenses than its economy in the past year the prices of fast moving consumer goods like food and household items have all gone up even bread a staple of the iranian diet that has been price controlled for decades is more expensive now and in some places the price of a piece of bread has tripled whether they have known war or not a few here are keen to rush into battle with the united states in a meeting of the to her own city council this week. the son of

5:12 am
in indonesia's capital jakarta thrown fireworks at police as they rallied against the results of the presidential election riot police fired tear gas and water cannon as the standoff continued into the night the election commission declared president joker widodo the winner of april's poll with 55 percent of the photos but opposition presidential candidates proper was will be on to says that he plans to challenge the result in course let's go live to al-jazeera as florence louis is there for us the morning after the night before florence after the police firing tear gas and water cannon overnights what's the situation there now. well it's really it's calmed down largely after very eventful night now at the moment. protesters but we are expecting the crowd to grow now police say they
5:13 am
arrested about 20 people overnight these are people who they say suspected of provoking or inciting violence that took place overnight the protests started peacefully. on tuesday afternoon where there are about a 1000 people who are gathered outside the office of the election supervisory board that's just right here behind me and it had started peacefully by night many of the protesters had disposed but then they came back and refused to leave the area despite orders from the police and that's when things started to turn ugly protesters hold fireworks and other objects at the police who then retaliated with tear gas water cannons and the clashes lasted for several hours and it really only started to calm down by about 7 this morning now as i said we are expecting the crowd to grow even though police have been have been warning people to avoid large crowds and to not attend the demonstrations for fear of terror attacks police say they have information that people linked to i still may be plotting to use the
5:14 am
gatherings to carry out attacks and they say they've arrested 30 suspected extremists as well as seized homemade bombs please and military have also been taking steps to prevent people from traveling to jakarta on mass there are about 50000 police and military personnel on duty in jakarta. beyond taro the man who ran against president joko widodo as his supporters to maintain peace and order when they demonstrate but as we've seen with emotions running high the situation can turn at any moment so what happens now says he doesn't accept the results of the election how is this dispute going to play out. while we're seeing part of that process unfold right here these demonstrations are something that probably will called for in fact people started gathering on tuesday afternoon shortly after president joke over giotto delivered his victory speech. you know has the demonstrators to demonstrate peacefully but if the them and
5:15 am
if the demonstrations carry on for a couple of days it could disrupt business and it could bear alive the city and then of course there's the. legal avenue that's open to he has said he intends to follow a legal challenge in the constitutional court now and he has till friday to do so and once he does so the courts will have to decide whether or not it thinks there is enough evidence to take on the case and if it thinks there is then there is another 14 days from the time it receives all the documents point to make a ruling and the court's decision is final and it cannot be appealed and once the decision is made the general election commission then has to announce the final results within 3 days off the ruling so that's the legal avenue that's open to. now and it has to be it's worth remembering that international observers have said that the elections that were carried out in april were largely free and fair even though alleges that there was widespread cheating and irregularities and it's also worth
5:16 am
pointing out that some analysts have even said that because joke over dodo won by an 11 percentage point difference which translates to nearly $17000000.00 votes this in a way undermines proposed argument the opposition's claim that the elections were a great agent florence but he thinks i was there as florence through their lives in jakarta the us president told trump's latest tariff increase and beijing's plans to counter them hitting u.s. companies in china that's according to the american chamber of commerce it found at least 40 percent of its members are considering or have already relocated businesses outside the country china's ambassador to the u.s. says that beijing is ready to continue trade to the last round and did 2 weeks ago let's go live now to beijing al-jazeera as adrian brown is there so china's new u.s. ambassador is still saying beijing wants to talk but it's not a flaw in the hope do you think a dream. i think in many ways it is
5:17 am
adrian near china's ambassador to the united states is a man who has a pretty shrewd understanding of the u.s. political system as well as the way the u.s. media works which of course is why he's been appearing on the fox channel which is president trump's favorite news channel of course now what he said was not entirely new he stressed that china was committed to talking to the united states if the united states wanted to talk he said that china remained committed to buying more from the united states to address the trade balance but he also said that you know the united states has also been renee going and flip flopping on some of the commitments that it made during previous talks because a few weeks ago of course president trump citing as one of his principle reasons for raising tyrus with china was that china had gone back on his word well the ambassador was saying actually it's the united states it's been going back on its word meanwhile we've been hearing from you know u.s.
5:18 am
business groups here in china adrian really painting a pretty grim picture of the business environment here right now for u.s. companies saying that 40 percent of respondents to a recent survey said they were either planning to leave china or had left china moving their manufacturing bases out of the country a 3rd said they were now focusing purely on china business as opposed to business with the united states they also complained of facing increased delays for their products at customs saying they get you know an unwanted sudden inspections at their factories and also complaining of you know time being taken to to get new licenses they need to cooperate in china so that is a reflection of the reality in china at the moment for for u.s. businesses remember china's government continues to say that the environment remains good for all businesses wanting to operate according to the law in china
5:19 am
adrian the propaganda organs in china appear to be in overdrive this week we'll see your assessment of the tone. will it is sort of strident nationalism in a way we've been seeing lots of old films glorifying china's role in the war against the united states during the korean war we've been seeing a lot of songs appearing on social media particularly on we chat songs that really attack the united states and its role in the current trade friction with china one of the songs has has the catchy line that if the perpetrators want to fight will beat their wits out of them now this is you know a symptom of flavor of the way some chinese feel at the moment the way that all chinese people feel of course but on a bigger picture it's interesting to see what president xi jinping is doing rather
5:20 am
than what he's saying right now he's continuing his tour of the southeast of the country following in the footsteps of those who took part in the great march the march that of course was led by chairman mao and brought the communists to power it is 100 years since the communist party was created here and 70 years of course since the communists came to power and the message from president xi jinping is this you know we fought the americans once before we can do it again our china correspond a daydream brown reporting live from beijing a very many thanks. the u.n. says that most of the people who fled venezuela's political and economic crisis are in need of refugee protection and it's urging governments not to deport them 3000000 have left the country since 2015 as the economy has crumbled a power struggle is continuing between president nicolas maduro and the opposition leader. the un's refugee agency says between 3 and 5000 venezuelans are
5:21 am
still leaving every day almost half a 1000000 have sought formal asylum mostly in other latin american countries and america and its lucien newman reports now from caracas the un refugee agency has called for. protection seems to be an indication that this crisis is going to get worse before it gets better in fact the united nations says that nearly $4000000.00 venezuelans have left the country in less than 4 years most of them coming to latin america which is a part of the world that certainly does not have the resources to absorb so many this is unprecedented refugee crisis for this part of the world and there are countries that are already closing the door. trinidad and tobago panama which is demanding that they have a visa so the united nations is clearly saying this is an emergency the region needs help venezuelans are going to need help and latin america too are saying that this is a burden that needs to be shared not just by the region but by the whole world

5:24 am
early say the judiciary in argentina tends to lean towards those in power. there is political persecution there is animosity and judges pushing cases improperly against certain political figures but i believe it has to do with the justice system as a source of power and not because they're responding to those who are in government commissioner was expected to run in the october presidential election against modi . but the former president surprised everyone on saturday when she said she would run for vice president instead i company i'll bet the farm and this a former political ally a strategic move that is supposed to help her party win more votes. her supporters say cristina is in a sense isn't it was. with her we had a better life education health care she's been persecuted because she defended the poor. the trial is expected to last for a year

5:26 am
house on this important issue. the government will therefore include in the withdrawal agreement bill at introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a 2nd referendum and this must take place before the withdrawal agreement can be ratified one hour from lauren sleep in london. by her own admission this is three's m a's one last chance so she put it in a speech to try to deliver some sort of bricks it's to try to deliver herself a legacy frankly but what she wants is a brick set that can appeal to as many people in this deeply divided parliament and deeply divided country as she can and so to that end she's obviously listen to all the different very loud voices across parliament who want entirely different things from bracks it's and tried to bring them all together and say ok let's see if we can have a withdrawal bill that we can pass that brings all of these things in at once and so she's trying to appease the hardliners in her own party who want to ensure that
5:27 am

5:28 am
a saying we've heard all this no thanks very much the labor party side crucially those who won the 2nd referendum are saying well i'm on trees i'm a your saying these things but you're leaving office anyway and your successor could be a hard liner who will rip up the idea of a 2nd referendum completely so as an idea a week or 2 before this voted or really. it's pretty much dead in the water a weather update next on the news out then does anyone here think that the women in this country will stay silent while our rights are being taken away from us. thousands of women across the u.s. unite against the recent wave of empty abortion legislation. and in support basketball's most dominant team heading to the n.b.a. finals for a 5th straight season. the weather sponsored by the time. hello there we're still seeing quite
