tv   Sykes- Picot Lines In The Sand 2016 Ep 2  Al Jazeera  August 26, 2019 3:00pm-4:01pm +03

3:00 pm
2 is a small shade. the apple 2 was a huge that was actually really the 1st all usable personal computer the apple 2 always you know i always thought it was magical because you could do almost anything you thought of if he were creative enough the apple to the 1st personal computer designed for the general public the sales are phenomenal it in bodies the computer revolution but it has a serious 100 and the person who has the solution is boogie. was the acro version of basic but it wasn't completely up to date that was a certain aspect of it that wasn't in there so they began looking around for another version of basic that ran on that ship at the apple 2 used and microsoft was a company that had it so they got in touch with bill gates. with basic
3:01 pm
microsoft supplies what the apple 2 lacks this is the 1st collaboration between bill gates and steve joel but at the end of the seventy's thanks to the success of the aapl to the spotlight is on steve jobs and then in 1980 they went public so there are all these people have stock that got very rich and it was one of the 1st public companies in the personal computer space where people got rich so then people started to really paying attention what's it like to get rich it's very interesting i was worth. about over a $1000000.00 when i was $23.00 and over $10000000.00 when i was $24.00 and over $100000000.00 when i was $25.00 but. especially at that point in my life it was it was not the most important thing the most important thing was the company the people the products we were making. the products also the obsession of bill gates
3:02 pm
his vision of a world organized a run software. there's a lot of people who are forecasting that they'll be software stores just like there are record stores today and that they'll be thousands and thousands of those and i think i'd have to agree with that or mine of those 1st product was basic and that was sold to apple and that was sold to radio shock and commodore they were all customers so he already was doing business with sort of everybody that was trying to make personal computers he was the 1st person to really have the idea of a software company separately from a hardware company and that maybe the software company was going to create more value hard work but apple was the big elephant you know bill gates was the mouse so bill gates being that position he was a scheming you know strategic guy and he managed to work his company up despite the fact that the giants of the personal computer business apple and to some extent in
3:03 pm
i.b.m. were giants and he had to get his software on to them in order to grow his company . i.b.m. the computer hardware giant soon entered the new personal computer market but computers and nothing without software to i.b.m. known as big blue tones to bill gates who seizes the opportunity and in 1980 signs of a lucrative contract with i.b.m. his new computer operating system would run on all i.b.m. p.c. and most dos is the backbone of the p.c. and it makes the computer easier to use. the smartest thing he did maybe the smartest thing he ever did. computer business was that he got i.b.m. to sign a deal that gave him a one time payment. i don't allow him to license it other people
3:04 pm
might clone i.b.m. p.c. i.b.m. did not really think anybody else was in a successfully clone their p.c. so they didn't care bill gates is a must have strong in addition to his contract with i.b.m. he retains the right to sell his computer operating system to any of big competitors being go with dos gates sets the software standard for the entire p.c. industry i'd say within 6 months of him doing the i.b.m. deal. everybody in silicon valley knew about microsoft the. in the early eighty's steve jobs and bill gates are still under 32 key players in a rapidly expanding industry meteoric success stories for 2 very different personalities. robert cringely knew both men well he worked with gates
3:05 pm
and jobs starting in the late seventy's a former staff member at apple he switched to journalism and for more than 30 years has written about their rivalry with bill was always about the money with steve it was never about the money and money is nice but it was never about them i am so that that made them black and white you know up and down up a hole they were there very very different people i hired steve jobs at atari when i think use 90. he was very sure of himself and was quick to judge whether he thought you were smart or dumb and if he thought you were dumb he was dismissive even if you were his supervisor he he was very good at knowing what he wanted and he would just steamroll you into
3:06 pm
doing it and he definitely relied on his instincts a lot he relied on his gut and he talked about that all the time and that's a certain type of spiritual dimension of being into being you know we had read books about for instance gordon chief a famous russian spiritual master who was always talking about integration and a whole mess which means using all your faculties which means using your 3rd eye vision. in the 70s like many of the hippies at the time steve jobs and his friend daniel costa leave to go to india the trip is a rite of passage a search for spiritual wisdom. we were looking for a wise man who had secrets of knowledge for us. nothing really much happened to us we did not find the guru we hoped we would find.
3:07 pm
steve would talk about all this. spiritual stuff and yet he could be a cool person you know he he he had a real troubles with intimacy he couldn't allow himself to get close to people. i don't know why you know he loved the idea of spiritual ism but to live it was hard for him. and bill is just geeky you know he's he he's just a very nerdy guy and as such in especially his early years he had problems communicating and being understood and his family didn't know what to do with them and he found his niche in business and technology and succeeding just on the basis of brainpower steve jobs a much better marketeer than more than bill gates was but he was not
3:08 pm
really that technical he was not a technical code writer bill gates could write code and write good code bill just different he led with the data and with the inside in the technology of the idea were steve led with you know what's it feel like to look like you know so. much more technical much more marketing where we are one. in one recent one. in 1940 jobs the king of marketing unleashes a groundbreaking advertising campaign this is to promote his newest creation the
3:09 pm
legendary macintosh a rampart against the r. well in world of the giant i.b.m. after the macintosh nothing would ever be the same again simpler operating features new design the mouse appears on the graphics interface those little windows that make life so much easier these innovations combined with software developed by microsoft like excel and word make the mag an overwhelming success in fact bill gates becomes a key figure in promoting the mac for years now it's a great machine it's a step forward in terms of the way it uses graphics and the speed of. business machine that a lot of people are going to be able to afford that's a very very useful machine there was a lot of collaboration there was microsoft drugs really great. things for the for the muck you know excel came out 1st on the map the atmosphere was fine when he
3:10 pm
came i remember the 1st couple times remember that we were not competitors at all at that point they were our allies and helping making the macintosh happen so we got along very well with them they were similar toss in many ways. well done so the macintosh software dating game. software ceo's could i please ask you to introduce yourself in a power to be of the dating game hosted by jobs the contestants of the software producers who contributed to the success of the my name is bill gates i'm chairman of microsoft and during 1984 microsoft expects to get half of its revenues a macintosh. behind the smiling facade steve jobs plays the king and treats bill gates like a vassal for making numbers 3 describe your ideal relationship with apple.
3:11 pm
will be so in our software independently so the key thing is that apple gets a lot of consistent standard machines out there quickly i spent the whole time 2 days in a y. e with bill being ignored. we were treated like some crappy little it was like the most oh it was horrible we went for a walk bill and i went for a walk all the way the diamond head and back on the beach talking about how screwed we were which is what we're going to do lotus are going to sell us we are so let's show we had work prostin to excel we're just like we're just excel saturday extra because they were long as offered. bill gates is bitter but retains his foresight the monks renowned graphics interface represents the future of personal computer without a qualm he makes his move you know i didn't trust bill gates you know while we were working on the macintosh i was one of the 1st people apple to catch on to the fact
3:12 pm
that microsoft was cloning the macintosh they were making their own version of the macintosh operating system. i was always on the phone with a fellow who was in charge of microsoft's application software he was asking me questions about how the macintosh system software word that he didn't need to know to do what he was doing so i kind of caught on to the idea hey they're copying the mac. i told steve he wasn't worried about it at all jobs is in reached when he learns that microsoft is launching a new operating system windows there was a pretty strong disagreement with windows game you know then that was probably of all of the things that are applicable to them so i was the i was the thing that that upset out of the most people so they're so there their lawyers. and the summer and certainly you know i'm sure upset steve to some some extent.
3:13 pm
he was very upset and his 1st reaction was get bill gates down here tomorrow and i thought well boy you can't just call your competitor down it might take a week or so. i think i was amazed or was there the very next day. i was very impressed by bill gates because there was an extremely angry steve jobs in there there are maybe 8 or 10 other apple people but just bill from microsoft no entourage no one there with angry steve jobs pouring down them just yelling at him you trade us how can you how can you be trained and bill gates as cool as can be said back well steve that's one way of looking at it i have another way of looking at it he knew that the graphical user interface was the future of computing and a so if he wanted to be to remain in you know dos was everything dos was huge but he
3:14 pm
knew that if he didn't do windows he'd be out of business. bill gates goes on the offensive job's already had a taste of this when renewing licensing for basic which he quipped apple 2 still cupertino is best selling computer it's the end of their collaboration no it's open warfare they have a go shish an am bill held out for a extremely high price that he didn't expect to get. and steve sell trapped and so he paid bill what bill asked he overpay for the contract extension of. microsoft basic they made so much money from that apple contract that they devoted the excess money the money they never expected to get to creating an international business we always talk about companies plane cats
3:15 pm
it's a chess game well everybody else was playing chess bill was playing 3 dimensional chess he already had his move on another board already calculated from 3 moves on the previous board so if you look at the fact that microsoft more than half of microsoft's business is now outside of america that wouldn't have happened without apple the way. we did see increasing success job's becomes even more of a megalomaniac the world's no revolves around him he creates his own personality cult the machine he's here and it literally recognizes him as its father. and a great. show it is which consider. that i introduce the
3:16 pm
man who. speeds. oh i think if you talk to a lot of people on the mac team they will tell you. it was the hardest they've ever worked in their life some of them will tell you it was you know the happiest they've ever been in their life but i think all of them will tell you that it is certainly one of the most intense and cherish experiences they will ever have an. idea so. you know it's. some of those things you you are not sustainable for some people. over 100 years ago britain and france made a secret deal to divide the middle east between them now we can draw a map in the 2nd episode we explore the lasting effects of this agreement if there
3:17 pm
is a original set to 6 because it's at those borders were drawn without consulting the people who have to live with the. psychs pekoe lines in the sand on on just the. al-jazeera for me is different because there's a maturity about its views gathering and that is really genuinely a also has channel but the bad side the risk of a story like looks to fill all the time of the not going to al-jazeera is setting out to give a good view of the reality on the ground that other reality on the ground can only be combat on the job and that's all the people that's what we do i think that's what we do well. legally prescribe for the pain relief of the sick but taken in life threatening doses by millions in search of a fix. huge illegal shipments of the opioid tramadol or flood the quest that some.
3:18 pm
people in power goes to nigeria to investigate the devastating addiction epidemic that is even fueling the boko haram insurgency. west africa's opioid crisis on a. i'm richelle carey and these are the top stories on al-jazeera are on top diplomat has made a surprise visit to the g. 7 summit in beirut its foreign minister mohammed java's cirie flew in for talks with france's president monreal mark wrong france has been trying to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal that the u.s. pulled out of last year says the road ahead is difficult but it's worth trying and german chancellor angela merkel says every opportunity should be taken to resolve tensions between the united states and iran. in the end the
3:19 pm
question is can we succeed in finding a way to prevent a food the risk because if nothing happens then we will have to see is that iran reneges. on its commitments in september or can we manage a reverse development in which iran read he is to the j c p o i a shins plus step by step for the talks with iran the 10s of thousands of brazilian soldiers are heading into the amazon rain forest to join the fight against those wildfires military planes are dumping water on forests which are burning in the state of arizona many blame the policies of president terrible snorer of the surge and fires but he's expressed confidence the situation is under control. burns are down over the last few years and are going back to normal. thousands of venezuelan migrants are stuck at the border between colombian ecuador after

3:21 pm
a difficult and mu curie leader those close to steve jobs described him as unapologetically pragmatic a dictator who ruled by instinct more than loyalty he believed. very small groups of people being pushed into greatness and that was in part because he felt that he could only. lead i have told people at most and so why not lead the best sample so he was constantly trying to figure out who is the best ever you know i was fired by steve jobs 3 times i was fired because i was kept dropping out of the best.
3:22 pm
i'm john sculley president in 1903 steve jobs lures joan scully away from pepsi cola to become c.e.o. of apple with this legendary phrase you want to keep selling sugar water all your life or do you want to come with me and change the world they start off as the perfect do you do to mediocre mac sales combined with jobs increasingly to run ical counted to the honeymoon is soon over. it came down to eventually on the board a war between john sculley and steve jobs and in the end because steve jobs had actually burned out so many people and created so much animosity and fear about himself when the board came to a vote it was almost like the entire company voted that would they would rather not have steve jobs around anymore. tell us about your departure from that. it was very painful i'm not even sure i want to talk about it.
3:23 pm
what can i say i had the wrong guy that was stolen. and. he destroyed everything i spent 10 years working for and a friend of mine was working at apple that day the day that steve left and they were all called out of their offices and they all assembled down on the in the parking lot and sat on the curb and everything and they were. told our one of our you know our founder steve jobs is leaving the company and nobody care they're like good good we can get our work done with all this craziness and madness and nobody cared. for steve jobs his eviction from apple in 1985 it feels like the tragic end of a love story he has been robbed of his child soon afterward using his own money he creates a new company next he is going to prove to everyone that he doesn't need outpolling
3:24 pm
and will continue to revolutionize the world of computers in his own mind he was the sole genius behind apple but we got it right now thanks. to my sister that this is needed friends you needed people to help. and microsoft never did anything for me. but they did the polish next either you know bill didn't seem next as a factor. he didn't see he didn't seem next as good as being evil having the potential for success and so he didn't have to oppose it. first thing to look at in this product is user interface that's perhaps the most important thing about this product this is the user interface of windows 2.0 of
3:25 pm
windows 386 in the late eighty's after a basic and dos bill gates wanted his new operating system windows to become the standard system worldwide roland hansen is the man who made bill gates the software industry's number one media figure and it's also due to this marketing wizard that windows the graphics into fees which would conquer the world owes its name. we realized that the opinion where you know they were calling these buoys none of these right were calling them goodies anymore they were calling them all windowing systems because they were creating windows on the screen. holy crap if these are all we're doing systems there's only one name we can be we have to be microsoft windows.
3:26 pm
about windows $95.00 is so easy even a talk show host figured out. windows was an affront. to jobs windows was an insult to jobs. distant relative of mine windows in just 10 years is installed in almost all computers on the market gaining planetary success with windows $95.00 gates and the p.c. definitively dethrone the mac. if you make of grog man. windows was a way to move everything that he wanted to do forward and it was the foundation for everything that followed. that was one of the windows 98 came out real
3:27 pm
revolution personal computer windows as you point out as are 90 percent of the computers around the world i mean today still is a phenomenal fact. and i don't see that changing anytime soon with the fantastic success of windows 95 the geek from seattle becomes the monster of software and also the richest man in the world interviewed at the time by robert cringely steve jobs expresses his contempt in a few stinging words he describes what caused the break between him and his old wife the only problem of microsoft is they just have no taste they have absolutely no taste and. that means is that i don't mean that in a small way i mean in the big way. so i guess. i am saddened not by microsoft's success i have no problem with their success they've earned their success for the most part i have
3:28 pm
a problem with the fact that they just make really 3rd rate products their products have no spirit to them the. steve decided that. maybe he had gone too far so he called he called bill up on the phone to apologize and he said he said bill. you know i saw the documentary you know i think i think maybe maybe i shouldn't have said that publicly about about having no tastes and and bill said well thank you steve you know our really want to thank you for doing that i think you went too far and then bill said and then steve said but it's true you know you have notes hades. i think i should've said it publicly but you know it's true and bill said steve i may have
3:29 pm
a taste but you said my whole company as though it's case. after the failure of next and by the success of his rival bill gates jobs gets back on his feet by investing in pixar a computer animation film company that would become a good mine and as usual he takes food credit for it. but when i 1st met ed catmull who ran the computer division of lucas film who i founded pixar with we did it together. ed showed me what they were working on and i was i was blown away in the graphics were you know years beyond anything i'd ever seen before and he told me of his dream to make the 1st computer animated feature film and i bought into that dream both sort of emotionally and financially and we found at pixar. it's just wrong you know it's just wrong that's the part of the marketing story that he sold about himself which is
3:30 pm
a good story but it's just wrong he's not pixar these the money of pixar he seductively narcissistic or to feel. something is just not right there but. whenever he wants to sell some boy does he do it including himself in 1995 toy story is the 1st fully computer animated film to become a blockbuster it paves the way for picks on his continued success propelling a triumphant steve jobs to center stage once again and here is where steve did something he was really good at he grabbed the moment. and he took the company public. based on nothing we had basically no cash. we just had this movie and then your critics it was going to be good and he took this is where he can sell something right he took that idea and sold it to pixar public became a billionaire overnight 10 years off the job departure aapl still hasn't recovered
3:31 pm
the company is on the verge of bankruptcy one last card to play the return of the wonderful apple appoints jobs i see and by since former failing company next when he came back to apple in 996 he was a much more mature much better you know he'd gone through a success of one company with a failure of another so he had left his youthful craziness behind and. i think is one of the greatest turnarounds in the history of of any industry in any country anywhere to have a man come back to a company that was really going down very rapidly. and very bad shape and then pulled off that success that he did something half of it backs that did change to. what i believe it was was that for the 1st time it was his money
3:32 pm
next it was his money he was losing. at apple it was arthur rock's money you know it was the it was the public's money it was wall street's money it wasn't real money. i give to his return to apple steve jobs back in 2 mind develops a new plan of action an occasion to make an amazing the known to his adoring public . and i'd like to announce one of our 1st partnerships today a very very meaningful one and that is one with microsoft. the discussions actually began because there was some. patent disputes and rather than now i know. rather than are repeating history i'm extremely proud of both companies that they have resolved these differences in a very very professional way and i happen to have
3:33 pm
a special guest with me today via satellite downlink and if we could get him up on the stage right now. that i've done in my career bill was genuinely happy when steve came by i think he recognized and felt. that losing apples as a successful company wouldn't be good for the industry and so and i think that was. that was when the relationship became closer and the relationship stayed close bill didn't do a favor for the city what bill did was microsoft had a successful business selling macintosh applications they were making a profit selling macintosh applications if apple went out of business the back
3:34 pm
software business at microsoft would go out of business too. so he had a franchise to protect now the fact that steve jobs was sort of crawling you know made it better bill gates has another motive for coming to steve jobs 8 the antitrust lawsuit pending against microsoft over its 10 year windows monopoly. i'm here to share my story and answer questions about microsoft and the p.c. industry. i hope that my testimony helps the court to resolve the issues in this case that would be bill. especially after the trust battle. really. the day to day part of the company was really. getting to be very hard on him and that that microsoft was so
3:35 pm
big and so successful that it was a time that he could move on and go on to something else. as gates steps a selling job is clients to new heights he adopts a new concept the ad campaign think different i return to his original idea of simplicity. the pain i most respect about apple is they have found a way to make complex things something. that was the thing different campaign thing different really got you the 1st but then when you went to really explored aapl. it was different. a brilliant marketing idea for the i mock the new home computer that gives its users the feeling of being special set apart from the standardized world
3:36 pm
of the p.c. . then he said ok i could build macintosh this forever but that would be boring so we're going to create the digital hub strategy and we're going to create the i pod in the i phone and the touch pad and everything and they're going to connect through computers but the computer is only about. if we're going to carry their computers around and that's the strategy 497-9899 when they came up with that so that he could do what he did best which was designed brand new products so that steve jobs is that it's like i am an alchemist i am a magician. i am going to make this rabbit disappear i'm not just going to make a rabbit i made disappear i want to make the buttons move around they like things that are magic. with the world steve jobs makes a new and unique contribution to our way of life a new digital wound with a single brand name that means innovation design and user friendly next note
3:37 pm
always true of microsoft products. but the big change would is the i pod. steve song or use an impi 3 player threw a lot of more around for 2 years for the oddball. but they were reserved for techies and so apple created an a better music player that was better because of the ease of use and then they had to find a way to feed it and in doing so of course. they took the record companies that claim as you know they they they stay stole the music business from the record companies because the record companies thought this is kind of interesting but it's not going to mean anything it's nothing you know this is no
3:38 pm
big deal apple told the record companies. that their goal in the 1st year was to sell a 1000000 music downloads. they sold a music a 1000000 music downloads in the 1st week. they sold 100000000 in the 1st year. they sold a 1000000000 in the 1st 2 years and the music business has changed forever and the record companies say what is that what where did that come from. an i pod. a phone. and an internet communicator. an i pod. the iphone defining steve jobs as a modern visionary able to satisfy every consumer need and desire. confronted with
3:39 pm
counsel perhaps he realizes his days a number no time to lose to make his mark in history apple is going to reinvent the phone he was our running a company that had gone off and done some really amazing things and it was no longer in this sort of i'm in the shadow of a bill gates about the shadow of microsoft apple's become this enormously successful company apple's those more business when i really have all those more business and i phones and microsoft those in total business and they're the most valuable company in the in the world now steve jobs didn't change the world steve jobs capitalize on a lot of things bill changed the world bill made software what it is today if bill had created the standards you know him or stop us windows and was very dogmatic at making sure those standards took hold we wouldn't have the technology we have today and i'm talking globally i'm not talking of the united states
3:40 pm
globally he impacted the world in terms of what he did with software. he decided to do the same framing form for perry. this is my last you know. and it's the middle of this year in july that i moved from being a full time employee at microsoft working full time at the foundation be the 1st time since i was 17 that i won't have my full time microsoft job far from the realm of high tech rivalry bill gates no chooses to help alleviate suffering in the world the foundation he heads with his wife melinda makes this billionaire the most generous for them through best in history he keeps a vigilant tie on microsoft but today the dreams he no choose linked to humanitarian causes this will go down in history as the world's greats once was no
3:41 pm
doubt about no one come closer and so i think for anybody else whether of steve jobs or whoever your view of bill changed a little bit when you saw what a good job he was doing i mean it wasn't like some guys screwing around with rock stars and occasionally showing up at a charity for his or is it really focused you know like that she will gold you know wipe out malaria no big deal you know things are just amazing right. now what individual in the history of money has devoted $20000000000.00 to anything . no one but you know bill gates so he's you know plays to win a place to win. steve never got their state ever get a penny pincher i once had a conversation with steve much weight or after bill gates retired from microsoft and he was doing what i thought was great stuff at trying to eradicate diseases in 3rd world and stuff and i said well you know even though bill gates on a wrecked the technology industry for
3:42 pm
a decade or 2 you got to be proud of what he's doing now and steve look at me and said what do you mean distributing is ill gotten gains you know us and he wasn't ready to give him all that much credit for that. steve jobs never missed a chance to insult his old enemies like these awful commercials that made p.c. users and critics say something positive for the p.c. ok easy p.c. you are a wizard with numbers and you dress like a gentleman you see well. i guess you are a little better creative stuff thank you even though it's 200 mile west. maybe twice. in 2007 the 2 giants come face to face for the last media event pasta confrontation has at last given way to peaceful rival. first i called jobs because i thought he'd be the hardest to get
3:43 pm
and he said bill does it i will do it but we have to keep it i want to keep it on a high level i don't want to just be a fight was the greatest misunderstand when you open your relationship and about eat each other what would you say would be we've kept our marriage secret for over a decade you know i work competitors in certain ways we watch the american way right the commercials and you get annoyed at each other from there i know i have to confess i like p.c. guy but yeah he's great and i know you know that i want our to those i know the art of those commercials is not to be me but it's actually for the guys to like each other. on. their. p.c. guys p.c. guys great i like is not of the law. on his mother loves this mother but i just i have the bills still viewed. as kind of
3:44 pm
a freak and he's fascinated by you know that people say why did you let. steve treat you that way and bill than even though he was being treated a certain way he was just watching this and saying who is this guy how does this work i have is there an algorithm here i don't because i don't get it. with steve jobs health deteriorating bill gates paid a last visit to his longtime rival and friend it would be a bittersweet and the last chapter in a legendary june. after a lifetime of enervation steve jobs died on october the 5th 2011. bill gates and steve jobs high tech giants who revolutionized the way we live work and play.
3:45 pm
here explores prominent figures of the 20th century and how life will reigns influence the course of history that was the human revolution come in his own way feel castro is a feudal east the not a communist just ruins of his country che wanted international revolution became a point when the relationship came to an end the icons of revolution who changed the course of latin american politics. and fidel castro face to face on al-jazeera . newsstand the differences. and the similarities of cultures across the world. al-jazeera.
3:46 pm

3:50 pm
well as for american markets at the beginning of the weekend they were very steep after the news that came out on friday you mentioned you know increased tariffs added tariffs coming out comments from president trump before he left for france for the g. 7 summit so over the weekend we saw some pretty steep declines in the future markets in markets outside of asia but they have softened over the weekend you know them european markets are going to open pretty soon the american markets after that so we're not going to see as steep declines as we thought we were going to based on those futures over the weekend but there's some interesting news just coming out of france the g. 7 meeting a summit from president trump he has said and this is a development because there's really been kind of a stalemate with these negotiations teams trade negotiation teams the united states and china we haven't heard much but trump is saying that chinese negotiators called american negotiators and they want to come back to the table this is a development this is something we knew they were supposed to meet next month in september but we hadn't heard anything over the last couple of weeks since they spoke last so this is

saying that he wants american companies to look for alternatives of doing business then going to china so you had a lot of really negative news coming out on friday reaction market reaction to that over the weekend and here in asia on monday but now we have this so is there an end in sight i would say probably not even with good news if this good news turns out to be true that we have an end very close it's because there's so much that needs to be done so much that needs to be undone unraveled before you can get some progress make some progress in these negotiations moving forward richelle all right scott highlight for us and beijing scott thank you for us climate a set to dominate talks on the final day of the g. 7 summit in france latest they're pushing for action on fires raging in the amazon rain forest policy a dramatic day on sunday when iran's foreign minister job had serif made a surprise at this and met the president of france france has been trying to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal that the u.s. pulled out of last year after left there it's he tweeted saying the road ahead will

allow israeli aircraft to attack lebanon or a targeted lebanon in the israeli side will never feel see israeli drones that are coming to lebanon are not coming here to collect information they are suicidal drones that they may killing us from now on we will face the israeli drones when they arrive in lebanon we will crush them we will drop them it's going to say no to who is in beirut so you know what do we know about this latest attack targeting this palestinian faction. well the palestinian faction the popular front for the liberation of palestine general command has knowledge that its military position has been hit it is blaming israel but it's worth mentioning that israel has not claimed responsibility for this strike in the early hours of the morning this base is close to the syrian border in a very rugged terrain it's believed to be made up of tunnels linking both countries

together it is being seen as a message to hezbollah more than the p f l p g c come out and yes the palestinian faction is an enemy of israel but it is also an ally of iran and hezbollah so it's being seen as a message to hezbollah just hours after the leader of the group vowed to down any israeli drone that violates lebanese airspace. addressing a crowd late yesterday saying that the attack he called it an attack in the southern suburbs of beirut in the early hours of saturday morning will not go without a response he's blaming israel for sending those drones to carry out some sort of an attack he didn't mention what the target was hezbollah also strengthening to launch attacks within israel as a retaliation for the killing of 2 of its fighters in syria has been a knowledge ng that 2 of its men were killed in israeli air strikes in syria just
