really the iranians have to see some action from the europeans words are no longer enough statements declarations are no longer what the iranians are looking for they're looking for concrete action from the remaining signatories of the deal the iranian foreign minister is in new york for 6 days where he will have a series of meeting at the united nations including meeting the secretary general antonio terrace where we believe that he will discuss the future of this nuclear deal now the iranian president hassan rouhani on sunday applauded zarif and his team for signing this deal 4 years ago exactly on sunday and he said that with this one single agreement the iranians were able to abolish 6 united nations security council resolutions against them so it's a very very important deal for them but they are really seriously doubting whether or not it will have a future because the have started to scale back their commitment to this agreement because they say they've simply not seen all the benefits that they were promised
6:01 pm
since the united states withdrew from the deal last year and imposed a series of oil and banking sanctions on the country so really they are hoping that today's meeting in brussels will come out with some tangible results for the iranians so they will have some hope in the future of this deal. thank you. still ahead on al-jazeera slowing down a trade war with the u.s. is one of the factors driving china's worst economic growth figures in years and monsoon rain leads to devastating floods across india nepal and bangladesh details in a moment. logan it's good to have you back well here just to the east of the philippines we're going to be watching the potential of a cycle in developing and as you can see on our satellite there's plenty of clouds

6:05 pm
weeks the police say they want better protection let's talk about this with the. she's joining us from hong kong and carrie lamb did condemn the violence that she described was committed against the police is the statement surprising coming from her government. no it isn't and it's also signals an impasse basically. 0000 of the of the current situation we're seeing basically that there is no change in the position of her administration and it is in and and it is unlikely that it will it is it isn't surprising for the protesters we've spoken to and it may signal just a continuation of the protests here. we've seen over the past few days violence breaking out in protests that start off as peaceful it remains to be seen just how the administration is going to solve this problem simply because we were
6:06 pm
seeing young protesters a lot of people here in hong kong venting their ire on the police actually calling them abusive asking them to do to back off during rallies and to stop being violence both sides are actually accusing each other both sides of violence so this is not surprising the statement of kerry lamb what it seems basically is an impasse that there is no change in its policy and it's unlikely basically that they're just going to be any concessions that will be acceptable for both sides and speaking of the. hong kong police association is now asking for improved protection a very private homes they say they're more more concerned about their physical security what are we to make about. well that letter was issued yesterday was made public basically junior officers asking for better protection particularly for their families they see themselves as oppressed by the the current state of affairs here in hong kong but if we look at what the
6:07 pm
protesters are saying and what the police or so. both sides feel oppressed in this situation but we've seen how rallies turn out on saturday we've seen the police surrounded by processors outnumbered we've seen bottles throwing umbrellas thrown at each other we've seen pepper spray is used by police against protesters sunday last night was also different here in hong kong the police managed to push them back they managed to disperse they were the protesters were cornered off in the mall we've seen videos of both sides to be violent but i guess what this reveals though this letter all of these are again it's basically a sense of basically it to a certain degree and needs for a better. i guess strategy for the government to deal with over the last few years and even during that 2014 berlin movement there has been no violence that is comparable to what is happening over the last month and the last 2
6:08 pm
days we've seen the level of violence and the chaos scaleup both sides accusing each other of violence the police saying they feel oppressed protesters are saying this is police brutality then it is what this clearly needs to be done is basically the administration to come over and find a better solution a proposal where both sides can find concessions to. talk and thank you south korea's president who's urged to resume talks on an escalating trade row. recent restrictions on high tech exports to south korea will be harmful to the japanese economy treated for talks on the dispute last week but failed to reach agreement meanwhile thousands of small business owners have rallied in south korea's capital calling for a boycott on japanese goods the restrictions imposed by japan are seen as retaliation for a recent south korean court rulings which ordered japanese companies to pay

6:49 pm
too. of. course that. accused of abusing state finances south africa's former president jacob zuma faces a corruption inquiry also we think there is still some closing thoughts when you go to keep the deal allies britain says the iran nuclear deal is not dead as a european foreign ministers gather in brussels. and hong kong's leader further inflame tensions with protestors as she calls them rioters. and in sport england are celebrating their 1st ever title win at the cricket world cup the host nation beating new zealand. played final. welcome to the news our former south african president jacob zuma is making a defiant appearance before a public inquiry saying there is
6:50 pm
a conspiracy against him as he faces questions about government corruption during his time in office now the commission is looking into allegations that he oversaw the mass looting of state funds most of the accusations and link to his relationship with the wealthy family they're accused of using their links with zuma to influence government policy and when lucrative business contracts the inquiry is all part of the current president several rubber poses pledge to clear out corruption but he replaces zuma last year when he was ousted from the ruling a.n.c. party zuma denies all the allegations against him. i've been a subject of. talk in this country for more than a decade i've been vilified.
6:51 pm
alleged to be the king of. corrupt people. are we toss our correspondent joins us now from johannesburg and obviously we've seen a little bit of what zuma has but he really has come out fighting. he has when he started speaking he said that at some point he's going to name officials he says are corrupt but he asked commissioners to give him some time to inform these individuals so that when the names are fired near a doubt at this commission they will be prepared right now he's giving his side of the story and he says he's angry he seems to fire and he says he's doing this because he's been provoked he feels that this commission was set up to target him specifically he says there's a plot to remove him from the scene a conspiracy against him and he says this plot goes all the way back to the dine 190 s. when during his time when he was in intelligence and afterwards and he says he thinks it's because he knows too much he gave
6:52 pm
a history of the corruption allegations that he's been through from his 2009 corruption case to where he was accused of using taxpayers' money to upgrade his private residence he gave a long history of why he thinks he's being victimized and he basically was trying to give his side of the story telling people that he really feels a bigger forces here a player out to target him fairly he will be at this commission for about 5 days but commissioners have said to him that if they feel they need to bring him back to display more things to give more details then they will do that at a later stage for him and of course are all huge implications horror to what ever he says because everyone in that ruben outside of it is hanging on every word. exactly and every time he's opened his mouth to say something literally people have been sitting on the edge of these seats trying to figure out what is he going to say next is he going to implicate any senior officials and that is what some people
6:53 pm
here are waiting to see he's threatening to give. this list who is on this list or what i think and when the name is right now and what is the way forward zuma has always said or in or for a couple of months he is not corrupt he said sometimes in the past some senior officials have used his name when he was president to try and thirdly personal interests for example an official could approach an investor and say i know jacob zuma i'm close to jacob zuma so if you give me a cut in the deal our next you are awarded a contract for example but some south africans blame jacob zuma for the corruption that happened under his watch when he was president for 9 years they blame him for the money that's gone missing they blame him for the state of the quitely right now but that said those who are here inside that room who are supporting him who feel that this is a political witch hunt and they say that zuma is not being cheated and they are people within the ruling a.n.c.
6:54 pm
party outside players trying to target him my final question touched upon it really about the fact that there is really a court of you might say public opinion how true and after disappointing general election results the a.n.c. needs to restore not only faith in the public and the public but they lost at the ballot box but they also need to try and regain a new generation reinvigorate south africans to reassure them that they are the party that can truly look after south africa. current financial picture. exactly that is why presidents are a month or so has pledged to tackle corruption head on and this commission i suppose is one way he seemingly trying to do it but a lot of people in perth are also watching the commission very closely there is a sense from some quarters that it is one sided saying that if zuma is guilty of corruption he saw really couldn't have been the only one they are maybe some people
6:55 pm
who are still in the ruling a.n.c. party maybe in business it is elsewhere in the country who may have also been involved it cannot just be seen to be zoomers allies being brought to this commission they also want to see the other side as well maybe people who are. aligning with them and most of us are but also come and have the say it's very important that this is seen to be balanced and not a witch and save some analysts otherwise the outcome of the commission may not be seen as credible or for the moment we'll leave it there and join you through that i thank you roger syndrome has witnessed the close relationship between jacob zuma and the group brothers who's the author of indentured behind the scenes at gupta t.v. and joins me now live via skype from new delhi good to have you with us mr syndrome on our program you're one of the very few people really that's witnessed i believe resumed his dealings with dealings with the group has so implicated in some of these corruption allegations against the former president how would you describe the relationship between the former president and the captors. well there were very
6:56 pm
