2:18 pm
wanted friendly relations has wanted the u.s. as a partner and there's no reason that we should reject at all of branch that i think russia has been holding out for us entering their property was a violation of the vienna conventions. and i don't know where it's going to end i do get the sense from russia that they do not want to escalate. and water levels are rising on the coast of the state of florida and you can see long speeches from florida right behind me now and this is where hurricane is hitting the u.s. mainland it's expected to pick up strength as well as it moves away from you but. as we slowly from the florida keys northwoods with winds roaring one hundred thirty miles an hour three u.s. casualties have been reported so far the national weather service says that wind gusts have brought down a construction trade in the state's biggest city miami been five.

2:26 pm
welcome twelve's apart after years of being unable to strike a peace deal with the palestinians israel now wants to have a say in the resolution of another conflict this time in syria its objective is clear to minimize the regional influence of iran but isn't it a little bit too late in the game well to discuss that i'm now joined by three believe me a prominent israeli politician and for my foreign minister of israel ms levy it's great to see you thank you very much for talking to us thank you now you are currently in the opposition to israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu by this far as i understand when it comes to the issue of iran most israeli politicians agreed that it represents a major deadly threat to israel that has to be curtailed through all possible means
2:27 pm
at my right in formulating your position yes not only for recently politicians so we believe that iran is a poor world but not only to you but to the entire and therefore we need to be dealt with the international community as such. i see him prime minister netanyahu who recently visited russia communicated something along those same lines to russian president vladimir putin do you by any chance know what how the russians have responded to those. concerns raised by the israeli prime minister i hope i would understand that these were. the sort of. the concerns of other states in the region the not only listen iran is both of the problem iran would not accept the right of israel to exist. below which is a total waste. in lebanon and iran support still in the region and final still in
2:28 pm
the region and though full we all understand that there is a need to give an answer of course and to confront. their doing in the region but we also need to conform to meaning my eyes and to who do you suppose you run and we're looking at the day after i mean we are all familiar of the situation in syria. and the question is what the day after would look like if we would see iran and then the iran influence in iraq and iran influencing syria and iran the influence in lebanon with. this would be a huge problem and we believe as i said before that this is something that needs to be the international community well it's interesting you say that because the view in moscow and let me know if you disagree with that is that the iranian influence is indeed a growing there is no do dispute about that but most believe that partially it is
2:29 pm
growing because of israel's own policies or the policies of israel's closest allies it all started to be with the invasion of iraq which allowed iran to gain a foothold there was a campaign in the israeli compound in lebanon beach consecutively led to hizbollah gaining more influence and dock country down was syria and now there is yemen don't you think that at least in part the iranian influence that you are so concerned about is growing because all of the opportunities that were handed to it by israel or israel's allies no way i mean to accuse the. for iran being a state that would not accept the right of his well to exist that supports jalal the way they are acting in yemen also how this is connected to easily and listen it is most important to discuss the situation now and what needs to be done and that's i said before let's take an example it's always slogans ation designate that there was the organisation we don't fund we're talking about.
