3:50 am
pulled out of last year last as a reef left berates he sent this tweet saying iran's active diplomacy in pursuit of constructive engagement continues met emanuel on sidelines of g 7 berates softer extensive talks with little man and finance minister followed by a joint briefing the u.k. germany road ahead is difficult but worth trying. as natasha butler has been following the day's developments in berets. donald trump in a somber mood as your rifle talks at the g 7 the u.s. president facing hostility from some leaders over differences on several international issues but as the meetings began it seemed common ground on iran was achieved the french president who so sting the summit said g 7 leaders agreed that he should talk to iran on their behalf a year and discussion we had a discussion of the wrong with 2 common lines 1st no member of the g 7 wants iran
3:51 am
to obtain a nuclear weapon 2nd every member of the g. 7 is profoundly attached to stability and peace in the region so we don't want to take any action which could harm this push i listed. and in an unexpected twist iran's foreign minister mohammad javad zarif arrived from tehran for talks 2 days after meeting in paris. emmanuel markov has been trying to mediate in the iran crisis since the us pulled out of the 2015 iran nuclear deal last year and we imposed sanctions it wasn't long before the apparent g 7 unity on iran was broken mr clinton did. to iran a message to iran that president mccraw insists he's going to deliver on behalf of all of the g 7 countries no i haven't discussed. the presence of the iranian foreign minister at this summit sony adds a new dynamic but it's unclear how much notice of any u.s. president was given about his arrival but when he was almost about it by reporters
3:52 am
donald trump simply said that he had no comment to make trump was also it also with some g 7 leaders over trade with concerns the u.s. terrorist war with china is responsible for the slowing world economy positions were clear in trump's 1st meeting with the british prime minister trump threw his support behind briggs's and boris johnson and promised an attractive trade deal if the u.k. leaves the e.u. . is the right. michael will undoubtedly the unshared jeweled invitation to iran's foreign minister could be a step to deescalating tensions in the region natasha butler just 0 pierrots. diplomatic at us or james bays joins us now from the summit in barrett so that was a very quick visit there by zarif what exactly did he do while he was there. well it was a very short visit as well and it took literally everyone by surprise certainly here the reporters in this press center 1st found out about it of flight tracking
3:53 am
apps showing that the iranian foreign minister's plane was in town and it's now emerged that most of the delegations didn't get much sure in some cases they're saying they didn't get any advance notice that this was taking place so if that is the case it was a very or day move by the french to arrange this of course prism mccraw met with zarif on friday in paris and i suspect that's when this idea was 1st suggested to the iranians we're told though the iranians didn't get a final invite until saturday evening and there was earlier on the suggestion that perhaps that's because there was an informal meet dinner of the g 7 leaders on saturday evening and that's where the idea was 1st floated that's not the case we hear from delegations we hear that it was not brought up at that dinner even though there was a big discussion about iran at that stage even though he had this in the works the
3:54 am
french president did not disclose it to his counterparts when zarif finally came here he had 3 and a half hours of meetings half an hour of those was with president macro himself and then departure is now the big test of all of this bold move whether whether it's a stunt or whether it's a diplomatic coup is what happens next yeah and how is the trump administration reacted to the fact there's a rift did drop in to be or it. was. and of course that is a big part of what happens next because in the dynamics of the leaders here the fact that france is talking to iran is nothing new they've continued the diplomacy they were involved in the iran deal and there in the other european countries are still hanging yong to the iran deal whereas the u.s. of course was the truck pulled out of the 2015 deal it went to tougher sanctions a policy of maximum. what does he make of all of this he was asked once by reporters today and he simply said no comment so we need to watch very very closely
3:55 am
what the americans make of it we need to watch what the iranians might have offered in this meeting and in the final day of the last day of this summit we need to watch how the g 7 then response james and berets thank you. hezbollah's leader hassan nasrallah says the group is now in a new phase of its conflict with his run off to to his ready drones crashed in lebanon capital has been lost says one drone damaged a building housing its media office when it crashed in the more wide area in beirut's southern suburbs and now they say drone exploded in the air and crashed in the same area responding in a televised speech nasrallah called it a very dangerous development and. enough is enough we will never allow israeli aircraft to attack lebanon or a targeted level on the israeli side will never feel safe that israeli drones that
3:56 am
