3:00 am
we recognize that. but we feel. that this can be resolved through dialogue. and i don't you know we discussed recent developments related to the middle east region particularly to the persian gulf and the sea of oman as we believe they are very critical regions for the gulf and the whole region we also emphasized on the strengthening of stability and more peace in the region. more with outside baghdad correspondents in teheran. well imran khan has been trying to mediate put together a meeting since the united nations general assembly in new york last month where he met on the sidelines president rouhani now this is the 2nd meeting that's taken place between the 2 leaders an iran contra spoke about the historic ties but also said that this is an initiative by pakistan that no one has told buckstone to carry this out and does not want to see a conflict in the region that a war between iran and saudi arabia would have global impacts you talked about the increase of oil prices the money spent on the one and the effect on civilian lives
3:01 am
but you also thank to iran for their support over the years and also said that president donald trump had asked iran contra act as a go between or as a mediator between to her own and washington now we know that iran is open to negotiations iran is open to talks as president rouhani said but we're not entirely sure how they are going to move forward president rouhani said that there cannot is pakistan's gestures that dialogue is the way forward but any country that thought that it could cause instability in the region was terribly mistaken he also said that this should be an end to the war in yemen that civil war that's been going on for 4 years with saudi arabian emirates supporting one side and iran are supporting the rebels he said that this should be an immediate cease fire and humanitarian assistance but he also called on the united states to return to the j. c.p.o. it that important 2015 nuclear deal that the united states pulled out of last year
3:02 am
and he called the sanctions economic terrorism and said that those sanctions should be lifted so iran khan is trying very hard to put together some talks between riyadh and iran but there is a lot of tension especially since the 14th of september when those saudi aramco oil facilities were attacked by the hutu rebels who claimed responsibility for it but saudi arabia blamed iran but so tensions are high it's a massive task ahead of them. the polls have closed across to me is here as the country chooses its new president in a runoff election both candidates political newcomers who beat more than 20 others in the 1st round last month they are these 2 men bill curry business tycoon and his opponent side who's a retired law professor now curry 1st of all he was actually jailed recently or released from jail i should say on charges of money laundering and tax evasion his party is called the heart of tunisia it's the 2nd largest it came 2nd in last
3:03 am
week's parliamentary vote a separate mean what kind of state his run as an independent candidate backed by the end of the party which secured the majority of the vote in that parliamentary election if he wins side says he wants to change the system he wants to allow elected regional representatives to choose the national leader is let's get an update with her now who's in tunis for us any indication of the results yet hashan . we do have some new developments for you. exit polls suggest has become in his ears 2nd democratically elected president those exit polls suggest that he has won more than 70 percent of the electoral votes one of the highest percentages of electoral votes since the 1011 revolution his supporters are now taking to the streets to celebrate his victory and we're expecting him to make an announcement in about 45 minutes from now so this is
3:04 am
a huge development here and it is you're an outsider a law professor who has served in the coming in the last few months one the 1st round of the election and today according to exit polls has become a 2nd democratically elected president defeating his wife will there be a cutaway of the media mogul and explain to his hashim i mean i briefly went through it a moment ago but how this will work with the parliamentary elections and the results which we saw there. so come on this is the situation as it stands now in tunisia the last sunday there were the parliamentary elections which didn't result in any or vs when and that came 1st but for the other to govern they have to stitch together a governing coalition but the all the political parties remain divided this is going to take some time for the mother to convince the key players so join them in
3:05 am
a governing coalition this why people are optimistic or pinning high hopes on. when you went with something like 70 percent it's a clear message that you have the backing of the but you have a mandate from the majority of tunisia and to unite in his ear and i think he will use that message from the people to reach out to all the political parties well obviously according to the 2014 elections constitution amendment as a president does not really have huge leverage compared to the prime minister but he still has control over defense and foreign affairs but with when you win with something like 70 percent you can still go to the prime minister and upon him and you say listen i have a mandate i have a majority of the backing of the people i don't want to see any problems as far as forming a coalition government you have to get your act together do it so other think he would be using that leverage to try to solve some of the most pressing demands
3:06 am
particular for the political elite to fix the economy ok. with that update on the elections in tunis thank you and also joining us from tunis we've got to see it here is the country manager for the united states institute of peace so let's build on what hashem was talking about there the fact that. it has the backing of his party they won the parliamentary elections he now looks like he was when we win again does that give him real strength 3 a real mandate to move forward. thanks for the question. the guy sayed he will become the president of tunisia and his primary responsibilities as president are foreign policy and security so the government that is formed by the legislative branch will nominate
3:07 am
a prime minister who will be responsible for seeing a lot of the primary concern overseeing a lot of the primary concerns of tunisia such as the rule of law such as economy unemployment etc but where security is concerned where the economy is not the kind of where security is concerned it certainly has the support of the people and will be challenged as as others have said too over to work with a parliament that is highly fractured right so that's a really important point you make that it is actually the government and the prime minister who will have to look after what have actually been the big election issues right the issues of of unemployment and economy those a big task for whoever that prime minister will be. that's exactly right and you know tunisians have appeared to have voted the religious results are still very kind of estimates and preliminary but syrians have appeared to have voted for criseyde for president in overwhelming numbers at least according
3:08 am
to propel him a results which points to tunisians preference for a candidate that is seen as of high integrity of high ethics anti corruption and as someone who who wants the people to be more kind of represented in government he's spoken a lot about the importance of citizenship in the importance of these kinds of issues so moving through to the parliament yes the parliament will have to form a government that can represent these needs and these desires their ability to do so. will be challenged however if within 2 months they are not able to form a government that would result in mended tory new elections which could see these parties essential be having to recommit pete and really go through elections and potentially lose power so it is in the interest of the parties that have one to find a compromise and to form a government and i am optimistic that in tunisia's the kind of spirit and cooperate
3:09 am
crisp era of cooperation and the pattern of consensus that a government will be formed so that would need will need to happen and you think all of this suggests that in his ear is still in that strong position which we always describe as the the the the strongest democracy to actually emerge from the arab spring. well absolutely i mean this is there have been 7 elections since the uprising in 2011 and so that's a testament to the election commission itself having organized 7 consecutive transparent and credible elections so tunisia is firmly has firmly established and proved to the world that it is capable of organizing free incredible elections and of organizing free elections and multi-party democracy multi-party politics is certainly here to stay with that comes the challenges of governing in a multi-party system especially especially in a fractured system and that will be tested over the next 5 years with this new
3:10 am
government. it's been great to talk to you get that analysis on these elections thank you for joining us to japan now where the military is deploying tens of thousands of troops to help with rescue and cleanup efforts after a powerful typhoon swept through its eastern coast at least 23 people were killed and many are missing after the storm brought pretty much everything damaging winds heavy rainfall flooding and landslides this report from wednesday in tokyo. those living in the path of typhoon were told to expect a short sharp burst of violent weather it soon became clear that the main feature of this storm was a huge amount of rainfall some areas saw around a meter of rain in 24 hours and waterways simply couldn't cope one of the worst hit areas was not good no prefecture west of japan's capital tokyo where

3:12 am
urged to stay home by day it became easier to assess the damage and carry out search and rescue operations millions were ordered or advised to evacuate but some chose not to leave their homes or couldn't get out in time. the storm was compared in size and strength to a typhoon that struck tokyo in 1958 leaving more than 1200 people dead modern japan has become well drilled in dealing with the threat of natural disasters and it seems this time it was as well prepared as it could be. was japan's 19th typhoon this year but those who experienced it say this was one of the most intense in decades many are relieved it was relatively brief allowing the recovery to begin quickly wane hey al jazeera tokyo. in hong kong police about dozens of arrests after pro-democracy protests turned violent this footage is emerged of a man being arrested after a police officer was stabbed in the neck near the quinton metro station

3:20 am
turkish offensive which has been the main preoccupation i have to say going into this evening's dinner president macron saying it was both an important and difficult moment for europe and he said he can that it was a shared belief that the offensive should end mathematical mrs merkel then chimed in saying there must be another way to handle this situation now is foreign affairs council will meet on monday in luxembourg that's a meeting of the e.u. foreign ministers and both france and germany have suspended weapons sales to turkey because of the concern that those weapons might be used in the offensive make no mistake the seriousness of the situation and in particular mr macron said that the situation was constructing an unsustainable humanitarian situation in northern syria as well as presenting circumstances whereby operatives and fighters could gain their liberty could escape from those camps those who were looking for some kind of indication as to how the bricks and negotiations are going would be if
