london with the top stories from europe including a tumultuous times in british politics continue on to the dramatic suspension of parliament prime minister boris johnson insists a new press it deal is possible. and this for somalia have suffered a world cup heartbreak against him by way a last minute goal denied africa's lowest ranked team a place and the next round on the road to qatar 2022. so the u.s. national security advisor john bolton has been fired by president donald trump in just the past couple of hours in a tweet the u.s. president said he had numerous policy disagreements with bolton as did apparently others in the administration bolton was trump's 3rd national security adviser we will have reaction from washington in just
9:02 pm
a moment but we'll start with this from mike hanna looking back at john bolton's time in office we think the sanctions. fighting john bolton was the 3rd national security adviser pointed to by president trump since taking office and he's the 3rd to resign after much speculation of imminent firing bolton brought to the white house decades of experience in foreign policy and a hawkish disposition that had never wavered. he served as ambassador to the united nations under george w. bush from 2005 to 2006 and use that position to continue to justify the u.s. invasion of iraq that he had relentlessly advocated a few years before madam president he returned to the un alongside president trump as national security adviser during the general assembly session last year and once again made his presence felt we've imposed very stringent sanctions on iran more are coming. and what we expect from iran is massive changes in their behavior
9:03 pm
around here certain national security control of the u.s. mission at the u.n. effectively downgrading the role played by ambassador nikki haley who resigned within months of his appointment what many diplomats say is that it's very hard to get clear decisions out of the u.s. mission to you at present and that is a probably because bolton and other members of the administration are fighting over what policy lines to take the secretary. while the administration appeared united in its america 1st policy some differences began to emerge particularly with regard to north korea chairman kim asked for this meeting president trump agreed with bolton adopted a take it to leave it attitude to negotiations leading to north korean complaints that he was undermining the policy of dialogue at the catered by both president trump and secretary of state mike pompei or the iranian regime has systematically pursued a policy of hostility toward the united states then the apparent moment of real
9:04 pm
division as he'd done in years past a national security adviser began to press for active regime change in iran. characterizing the shuttle deployment of a u.s.b. to the region as in his words a clear and unmistakable message to the iranian regime that's at odds with the white house policy in which the focus was morning exerting economic pressure through sanctions. after weeks of discussion it was confirmed that additional troops would be sent to the region but numbering hundreds rather than the 10s of thousands had bunked and was believed to be pressing for president trump denied there was friction within his cabinet i think it's fake is ok now what i do that absolutely but we have got plans for that hopefully we're not going to have to plan for that and if we did that would send a hell of a lot more troops and that the final straw perhaps a sadhana comment by a principal adviser to the iranian president who wrote in a tweet at real donald trump you want to the better deal with iran looks like
9:05 pm
you're going to get a war instead that's what happens when you listen to the mr good luck in 2020 john bolton is now on his way out his some star intact his dream up regime change shattered mike hanna al-jazeera washington now in the hostile father has been a news conference from u.s. secretary of state mike on payer and the u.s. treasury secretary steve pump aoe who has been defending the president's decision to fire john bolton so last night the president asked for and both ambassador bowles resignation as i understand it was received this morning the president's intitled to the staff that he wants that at any moment a staff person who works directly for the president that states and he should have people they trust and values and whose efforts and judgments benefit him and delivering american foreign policy that's what as cabinet member secretary lew should i try and do each and every day and when the president makes
9:06 pm
a decision like this is well within his rights to do so. well national security advisers obviously important role in any administration but no one's held it very long under don't trump in fact if you go back to the 1st advisor michael flynn who is a retired army lieutenant general he lasted just 24 days the shortest tenure of any security adviser in history and he's awaiting sentencing for making false and fraudulent statements to the f.b.i. he was replaced by a known for his roles in afghanistan and both gulf wars he only lasted just over a year to be replaced by john bolton who as you remember was u.s. ambassador to the u.n. under george w. bush so let's start to rappel this together with alan fischer who's joining us from the white house alan i do want to just before. we talk it is to read these tweets the base in the way this is happened today so we'll start with president trump's tweet i informed john bolton last night that is services are no longer needed at the white house i disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions as did others in the administration and therefore i asked john for his resignation which was given
9:07 pm
to me this morning i thank john for his service own name and you advise the next week so we have that and then the reply if you like john bolton says very glibly i offered to resign last night and president said let's talk about it tomorrow alan this is frosty this is this is strong language from the president it's seems to be different to the way he's gotten rid of previous stuff members. exactly if you look back to rex tillerson his 1st secular state didn't go on terribly well with him with h.r. mcmaster his 2nd national security advisor wasn't a great deal of rip or between them they got reasonably nice tweet saying thanks for your service all of that. mean but then to suddenly see his services were no longer required in trunk talk that that's pretty brutal that is you essentially being told to use the phrase from his old reality t.v. sure your father john bolton is kind of spending against that he is suggesting
9:08 pm
that he offered his resignation on monday night the understanding is that there was a very loaded heated exchange between the national security team in the oval office he offered his resignation donald trump said let's think about it in the morning john bolton went and 1130 this morning and resign but donald trump for some reason decided to tweet out at 1158 on tuesday morning that he'd fired john bolton john bolton since has been texting a number of t.v. personalities with him is particularly close saying that he wasn't fired he resigned he wants people to know that the other short of it all is that john bolton is out the door he lasted 18 months i think if you just said at the start of his tenure he was going to a lot last that long people would be surprised quite simply because so many of his positions. we're very much against donald trump's nationalist america farse foreign
9:09 pm
policy he wanted to see an increase in military activity against north korea he has advocated in the past for war with iran to positions which donald trump is not interested in then there was the meeting with the taliban over the last week donald trump was very keen to take them to camp david but then went off the idea john boehner was against that completely and on the run what came out of that news conference just less than half an hour ago is that steve minute to news the treasury secretary no says the door is open for a meeting between mr rouhani from iran and donald trump at the u.n. g.a. john bolton was dead set against that would have been the loudest voice in the room saying no this cannot happen no steve mission is saying that there's probably a very good chance that that's going to happen and that immediately changes the dynamic between the united states and iran so as you see national security advisor it's not a senate confirmed position many people think it's no big deal it's a big deal and it's a big deal when it's john bolton just quickly allan one of the reporters in the
9:10 pm
briefing room asked the 2 men were you blindsided and might compare sort of jokingly said i'm never surprised. it just seems to be all sort of treated so you know it's just happened move on they'll be another person coming along the way this white house operates. well donald trump just for the weekend was saying that the reporters who tweet on chaos in the white house is to use a well worn phrase fake news and that was because of something between the vice president and the president but there is undoubtedly an element of tar moyle if not chaos in the white house because of the number of people who are simply. in jobs and then i took jobs no john bolton was considered to be the 1st secretary of state donald trump didn't like his look he didn't like his mustache so he decided against them but he was always on the outskirts of this administration and then got the job
9:11 pm
his national security adviser the turnover of staff in this white house has been incredibly high to reasons for that some people don't want to work with donald trump the other reason is he actually quite likes the chaos he thinks people on their tours and helps them do his job better so we're going to see a change over the next 2 years before the election. wouldn't bear on it. is that the white house thanks for that now other developing news is israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu announcing his intention to add next the jordan valley in the occupied west bank that is if he wins next week's general election and you know who said the trumpet ministrations so-called peace plan for the middle east would provide a historic opportunity for extending israeli sovereignty over the west bank and other areas. in the not too soon i'm asking you to give me the mandate to extend israeli law to all the settlements out of respect for president trump i'm waiting to do this in maximum coordination with his administration but there is one
9:12 pm
place where the diplomatic circumstances are ripe to do this very soon if i'm elected i commit to next the jordan valley and north of the dead sea it is our eastern border our defense wall. well the un has expressed grave concern over the statement. but we've seen the statement made by. the prime minister the secretary general's position has always been clear and consistent unilateral actions are not helpful in the peace process or position today is unchanged and is reflected in relevant un resolutions any israeli decision to impose its laws jurisdiction and ministration in the occupied west bank is without any international legal effect i think such a such a prospect would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations regional
9:13 pm
peace and the very essence of a 2 state solution more on this one from harry falls that he said west of his and i'm. if spending netanyahu were to make good on this pledge to annex a huge part of the occupied west bank the jordan valley and the northern shores of the dead sea some 30 percent or so of the territory of the occupied west bank it would be an enormous deal it would be a real up setting of the entire predicate of how a settlement between the israelis and the palestinians could be reached in the future the whole idea of a 2 state solution depends on the possibility of a viable palestinian state and by saying that israel would merely unilaterally annex such a huge part of that territory leaving the city of jericho as an isolated island within that israeli and next area that would explode the idea of such a state indeed we're getting that message from senior palestinian politicians kind of ashrawi a senior member of the p.l.o. saying that this is being done in concert with the trumpet ministration to
9:14 pm
eradicate any hopes of a 2 state solution assad erekat the secretary general of the p.l.o. saying that it buries any chances of peace between israelis and the palestinians at the u.n. secretary general a spokesman saying that it would devastate any hopes of reviving negotiations between israel and the palestinians however this is all a big if if it were to happen because this was made by netanyahu not as prime minister the prime minister's office made that clear it was made by him as leader of likud in the last week of a bitterly fought election campaign where he's desperately trying to get as many right wing votes for his ruling party as possible he said that this would happen with him as prime minister if they gave him the is really good as gave him the mandate to do so he was the man to make the most of this historic opportunity not his political opponents and he said that it would be a case of waiting for the trump peace plan to come out and then making this part of
9:15 pm
that in the immediate period. after the election he has made similar pledges about annex in parts or extending israeli sovereignty to parts of the west bank the occupied west bank in the past and has then result from really making that concrete so there are all sorts of caveats all sorts of question marks that hang over this it was part of his election it was electioneering campaign in these final days of the election campaign but obviously if it were to go ahead it would cause huge ructions and has been bitterly and vehemently opposed already by both the palestinian leadership and members of the international community joining us again to talk about this time a comet who is an assistant professor at the institute for graduate studies nice to see you again we're talking about this idea of an extension of parts of the west bank and netanyahu saying it would be a historic opportunity to expand israeli sovereignty this is all forgetting the fact that it's actually illegal under international law or does that does not
9:16 pm
matter it's indeed very illegal and and it will. start a new freeze in this conflict. mean it will destroy any any of them in hopes of a 2 state solutions and i think that's a very dangerous side of the story it's if this happens this is the end of the peace process that peace a process already clinically dead but this will literally end that so i don't think it will be any reason to sit down and talk about peace when there is nothing to talk about if. the jordan valley and that is so if these latest at them from the west bank gets an x. that is that's that's that's a significant act and it's very illegal and it will end any prospect for the peace process we just get it so for the international community to sit on the wall and watch this happening i think they will be sending the very wrong message to all parties you specially the palestinians who have lost a lot of very have a price because of their compassion and they don't see anyone helping them in
9:17 pm
a sincere way to move on with this with this with this conflict it we'll. and this is looking to the future obviously netanyahu has to win yes to form a government and you haven't been able to do that before but if it all happened he would need. a sort of rubber stamp from the united states right well of course i mean for him likely has trump as a midget ally in the u.s. and trump is well maybe that small cages that he need to rubber stamp president trump yes exactly i mean isn't it i mean i think there are some elements in the american installations i mean they're not happy with what's happening with the current status quo of the few subprocess the democrats in particular particular have expressed their dissatisfaction with with with the with the with the school and the politics the kind of politics. yes i mean if it was not for trump bluntly i don't think netanyahu would have had the courage to do to publicly announce this or talk about this an exception so it's the ultimate end this american support coming
9:18 pm
from a very populous to the electron this is what giving nothing of the strength to to advocate for this and use this as and it looked roland. this is a pro campaign to us that are more voices that is who is this party tell me to believe it we got some other news to get to it thank you so much for joining us my pleasure thank you very much. yes here's what is coming up on this news hour nigeria's military accused of holding thousands of children captive in the fight against boko haram. and we also have sport 2006 champion spain's spain targeting a place in the semifinals of the c.s. basketball world come. to iraq or at least 31 pilgrims have been killed at one of the most sacred sites and shia islam they died in a stampede as hundreds of thousands gathered to mark the day of assura structures
9:19 pm
the scene carrying some of the more than 100 injured in the holy city of karbala the government fears the number of dead could rise charles stratford reporting now from karbala. witnesses we've spoken to say this tragedy happened one of a number of gates into the his same shrine a gate called balboa russia now this this witness said that the entrance is on a slope and according to him a number of people had full over as the many thousands were trying to get into the shrine and as you can imagine there was a stat what he described as a stampede and many people being crushed to death many more we understand injured and being treated at a hospital now this witness told us interestingly that go to him at least no women and children were involved. they apparently entered the shrine from another gate but this happens after certainly the authorities that we've spoken to the last
9:20 pm
cover days telling us that they were concerned on how they were going to cope with the numbers of people coming for sure this year they told us at least 3000000 visitors in karbala today and they said that this is as security has improved in recent years in the city and the wider iraq then more and more people are becoming . commemorate assure every day and the sorties have been very concerned as to how they were going to guarantee the safety and the security of these visitors and certainly this tragedy today shows just how difficult a challenge that is. the british prime minister bars johnson says there is a way of getting a new break that deal with the european union but he is prepared to leave without one if absolutely necessary here as lawrence taylor and a team in london with more. those come out here so more than 3 years after the british public voted to leave the european union the fallout from that vote continues and the british parliament was dramatically suspended in the early hours
9:21 pm
of tuesday morning after m.p.'s rejected johnson's motion for early elections under some and report. defeated for a 2nd time in trying to call the election johnson is out and about again this time with schoolchildren posing the question on everyone's lips how do you know you've only read yes october 31st. deal or no going to get a deal ok we're going to get a deal i'm going to work very hard to get you away from the photo opportunities the scale of this crisis is getting bigger there's still nothing concrete to suggest johnson can get a deal his special advisor the architect of strategy was trying to teach the media a lesson. of them. going to people who are not rich remain as.
9:22 pm
the leader of the opposition in a parliament now suspended for 5 weeks decried the government's claim that it's putting the people 1st the idea that johnson and his wealthy friends and backers somehow represent people is truly absurd johnson and his right wing cabinet are not only on the side of the establishment they are the establishment johnson may be looking to northern ireland and using the irish sea as a border in one idea to replace the backstop would have been insurance policy to avoid a hard border on the island of arland he seems to be playing with ideas or sort of moving the. boundary from somewhere on the island of ireland to the irish sea that's technically. the simple proposition but where they it's politically ready feasible that of course remains to be see. it's certainly
9:23 pm
a politically charged idea under nonstarter for northern ireland's unionists it could be the reason arlene foster leader of the d u p is here in downing street on her way to meet the prime minister. certainties are hard to find in this crisis whatever the strategy is being moldova here in downing street there's one overriding factor which dominates and can't be outmaneuvered and that's time or the lack of it and who simmons out to 0 london. to how that joins us live from westminster in central london so parliament is shut down due course to the options for johnson. well there's no clear or easy path forward for boris johnson our parliament into its 5 week suspension that means there are no further immediate ways for him peace to frustrate his brags of plans of trying to bring his government down all the parties accept that election is coming there's all of a sudden a rash of public policy pronouncements coming out of the parties in downing street
9:24 pm
we're told boris johnson and his advisors are trying to figure out how he can keep his promise to conservative members of taking britain out of the e.u. by october 31st now that means getting a deal the problem and a deal that could pass the house of course the problem is that the key negotiating strategy of keeping the threat of no deal on the table that's been scuppered by backbench legislation that made it onto the statute books just yesterday and there's precious little sign of any progress of reaching a deal there are ideas but as andrew was pointing out ideas that would pass the house not so much all of which leaves open the possibility of a range of potential confrontations in mid to late october boris johnson insisting he will not ask for a delay so might the opposition call a vote of no confidence to try and bring his government down quite possibly they could be legal battles in the supreme court testing the scope and letter of that
9:25 pm
new legislation and boris johnson may yet choose the nuclear option resign as prime minister allowed jeremy corbyn to take on the top job and the on the enviable task of going off to get that delay from the e.u. before having to come back and fight a brick city election sometime in november or december. thank you very much neal. the president elect of the european commission says that she wants the european union to be the guardian of multilateralism down veiling of her proposed team's portfolios underline added that she also wants to prioritize climate action the netherlands france timmons returned vice-president and will be in charge of the european green deal then marks margaret of estado will remain in charge of competition policy and r. and phil hogan will be trade commissioner overseeing negotiations with the u.k. and the u.s. the new appointees will start work on november the 1st if approved by the european

9:36 pm
on the news here at al-jazeera these are all top stories u.s. white or u.s. national security advisor john bolton has been fired by president donald trump in a tweet trump said he had numerous policy disagreements with bolton as did others in the administration john bolton was the president's national security advisor. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced his intention to an extent jordan valley in the occupied west bank if you wins next week's general election i don't know he said the trumpet ministrations so-called middle east peace plan to provide a historic opportunity for extending israeli sovereignty. and at least 31 pilgrims of been killed it one of the most sacred sites in shia islam they died in a stampede as hundreds of thousands gathered to mark the day of the shura the iraqi government fears the number of dead could rise back to our top story the firing of u.s. national security adviser john bolton and joining us on skype from toronto is bret
9:37 pm
bowen is the president of the crisis management group global situation room the white house would like to tell us that there is no crisis however when you go through 3 national security advisers. goodness knows how many other stuff they've been over the past 2 and a half years it does point to something of a crisis in the white house it is surprises it's a crisis with the american presidency donald trump has placed his ego and this flashy summits above stability above the security of the united states and our allies. and for what gain. well i think ultimately he is trying to advance a personal agenda and clearly john bolton was someone who was looking to advance a strategic agenda and let me be clear i was no fan of john bolton but he is at least had a certain methodology he was putting in place
9:38 pm
a policy process is to try and guide the united states through a small truest time in the challenge with president from is that he is just so erratic and can shift wildly from day to day i mean i'm actually thinking about something that might bump a instead of a news conference just earlier today he said would the policy be different absent any one here they are the president's decisions just makes you think that any of these people in important positions in the administration in the end maybe it doesn't matter what they think because donald trump's going to do what donald trump wants to do well look the. president will always be the ultimate word but what you what he meant to declare is that all of national security street is rowing in the same direction the problem is that trump can decide from one moment to the next that he wants to make peace with north korea or he wants to declare war on iran and there are no advisors there who are
9:39 pm
able to interpret that into a real policy all we have is a twitter street brett i'm going to leave you there just because the skyline is starting to break up a little bit but thank you so much for your time bret broke in toronto for us. now in hong kong protesters have used a football match against iran to highlight because demonstrators gathered outside the world cup qualifier and sang a protest song over the chinese national anthem iran had requested the game be moved to a neutral ground adrian brown has more from hong kong. was a this is a very highly politically challenged they would fit hong kong they was found in 2nd here 10 can stadium on sunday night and the balance of course is one of the reasons when i hear a news actually wanted to change the venue of this match to somewhere outside of home coming now ahead of this game between hong kong and iran the authorities in
9:40 pm
hong kong had appealed to fans not to insult china's national anthem when it's played before the start of the magic which of course is something that traditionally happens here in hong kong the games like this but in recent months in so seeing the chinese national you know has become a tactic or strategy at these protests is because they're not just fans of football they're also fans of new democracy and as we found out before the game this is an issue which is also dividing them go tell me when you leave when you sing the chinese national anthem tonight why live by what i want to say it is not my country is oh. so you won't know. about you know i don't say much a national i'm a hometown no i bring that that be our c.s.r.s. not suitable for me in gaol you codis didn't want to happen was actually nice national anthem is now playing inside the stadium
9:41 pm
