a replacement next week. correspondent 40 n.e.'s is in washington d.c. and he can tell us more now good to see low i suppose the 1st thing that comes to mind all the current tensions between the u.s. and iran trump of bolton clashing over iran so what impact will bolton 2nd half. you're absolutely right helen of there was a we'll call it a pretty strong difference of opinion we've seen we'll call it a more conciliatory tone coming from president in recent weeks and months and also also coming from his secretary of state mike pompei oh now what we've seen is the president has said he's open to meeting his iranian counterpart. rouhani we even heard earlier the secretary of state said that it could even take place at the. general assembly which is taking place later this month and i we know this was
very much against. john bolton had wanted he had a much more hardline and what's more aggressive sort of policy towards iran and it appeared that this just didn't fit in this different this change of direction we'll call it in a foreign policy direction and it was it was just one of many issues that it appears they disagreed over and also let's not forget it's also been reported here that there was perhaps a little bit of a personality clash even between the 2 that they just simply didn't see eye to eye on a personal level as well which is as many observers say here very important within the trump administration so public that iran of course iran is not the only country that the u.s. sees deliberating over when it comes to foreign policy we can talk about afghanistan syria north korea among all of this so it is this then signal a departure a change in direction for the trumpet ministration. well i just said it certainly
doesn't it appears so let's not forget the president trump. has been very much against for example the iraq war and he also in his one of his election promises was to see an end to the war in afghanistan and actually just over the weekend let's not forget he had planned to hold secret talks with taliban leaders actually david that was canceled but it also was an issue with john bolton who was very much against it he was really displeased with the decision from president trump and the direction that he appeared to be taking or appears to be taking us foreign policy so it just looked like that relationship in the administration was untenable well then all of this kind of begs the question though if new bolton's position on these countries before why the hire and why now the fire. well about of course as we know is what many people here
a many observers have been saying you know but it did appear though in the beginning at president trump was quite impressed with john bolton he was quite and is a quite i've spoken figure and that he was they did it agree and in many respects all not image that they had of the united states of being strong of the sovereignty of the united states so they they have those issues in common and also let's not forget does as significant percentage of presidents from supporters would agree and to a certain degrees with john bolton's farm policy and at the leafs direction he should take error was direction the united states should take put a cup to the point now we're we're seeing the shift in direction like a said and it just didn't work anymore and that's where we are now now what'll be interesting is home a is who will take over let's not forget the this will be the 4th national security advisor in the trumpet administration and what she wanted to forest is how
washington correspondent for the and yes thanks so much well now to the campaign trail in israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu has promised an extent jordan valley and the occupied west bank if he wins next week's election the jordan valley accounts for a large swathe of the west bank which is claimed by palestine as a future independent state that comes as israelis ready to vote in parliamentary elections on the 17th of september the 2nd such hold to be held this year. while saudi arabia has condemned to netanyahu is an exaggeration pledge calling it a dangerous escalation and earlier we spoke to debbie correspondent tanya kaina in jerusalem weeks before the elections and he said he wants to the next settlements in the jordan valley and north. sea and also in light of the possible revelation of the us peace plan after the elections and that he needs to mandate from his voters
from the israeli public to do so immediately after the elections now it's not really a new plant and israel has always said they want to keep this jordan valley especially security barrier as an east of a possible eastern border but of course there is a big if if he is reelected that would be a dramatic development because it would put a posting in towns like jericho in the jordan very little enclave israel occupied captured and occupied the west bank in one to 67 and of course such a move would then make this occupation permanent and also you know the notion for the palestinians of a possible. suffer in palestinian state and 2 state solution for those people who still believe and a 2 state solution would actually go away and of course it's an against international law and against the notion of an negotiated deal you know that would
