france's president is due to arrive in the u.s. on monday for talks with president donald trump with the fate of the iran nuclear deal front and center emanuel mccrone says abandoning the deal could lead to a north korea star standoff the us president has threatened to walk away from the twenty fifteen agreement he could do that as soon as next month when he has to recertify it for the u.s. congress what do you have as a bit there option i don't see it. what is a what if scenario or your plan b. i don't have any plan b. for nuclear against against iran so that's a question we will discuss but that's why i just want to see a nuclear let's preserve the framework because it's better than a sort of north korean type of situation so i'm not satisfied with the situation was iran i want to fight against palestinians signs i want to contain their
influence in the region so my point is to see don't leave now. as long as you have not a bitter regime for nuclear and let's complete it with ballastic misalign and original containment. our white house correspondent kimberly haokip has more now on that. no european leader enjoys a better bond with u.s. president donald trump than french president emmanuelle. mccraw has carefully culture their relationship inviting trump to paris for bastille day celebrations playing to transend well known admiration for the military the result troubles consulted with matters on the telephone with an any other world leader that cross says he even managed to convince trump to prolong u.s. involvement in syria. president trump was saying the united states of america had a duty to disengage from syria i assure you we have convinced him that it is necessary to stay for the long term the white house denies
a shift at syria position iterating trump hopes to soon withdraw u.s. forces. arrives in washington on monday for a three day visit which includes truck his first state dinner as president. his influence over the u.s. president will be tested on issues ranging from syria to the future of the iran nuclear deal with iran maintains it's in compliance with the twenty fifteen agreement which the u.s. signed with iran and european allies makarov favors keeping the deal as does german chancellor angela merkel who also visits the white house this week the iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transactions the united states has ever entered into but troubles vowed to withdraw by mid may unless european allies fix certain aspects of the agreement including improving inspections of iran's nuclear
programs so far that hasn't happened trumps recent appointment of john bolton to national security advisor and his nomination of mike pompei oh to be secretary of state both of whom have criticized the agreement. have caused even more concern about the deal's future in less than a month donald trump must decide whether to allow iran sanctions to be put back in place effectively killing the deal that makes the influence of emanuel mccraw and angle of merkel pivotal. whether or not the iran agreement remains intact kimberly health at al-jazeera at the white house or saying we're sorry and was the spokesman for iran during the nuclear negotiations with the international community from two thousand and three to two thousand and five he spoke about the importance of a menu arm across approach towards trump see i believe president macron has not . yet to write
a lesson from the nuclear the nuclear crisis between iran and the us iran and the war continued for twelve years when they decided specifically president obama decided to engage constructively to have peaceful negotiation to have mutual respect then they could settle on one of the most important and critical issues between iran and the west practically after lucian one hundred seventy nine now president macaroni saying we should keep the deal and we should fight with iran in the region the lesson from disappearing there is if you were in gauge constructively with iran you would be able also to help to resolve the regional crisis you would cooperate for peaceful management of the regional crisis but if you are going to fight with iran in the region in detention
the animosity between on and the rest would increase and definitely sooner or later we will witness the death of nuclear these. in nicaragua president daniel ortega says he will withdraw the proposed pension reforms that sparked a wave of protests killing twenty six people dozens of shops in the capital managua were looted as the protests and to their fifth day police have been criticized for their heavy handed response to demonstrations that included the use of live ammunition a journalist is among those killed in clashes and helga hohner was shot dead while reporting live on facebook one of his colleagues blames a government sniper. john how many is monitoring developments from mexico city. it was a surprise announcement president daniel ortega coming out to say that he was canceling changes to the social security system in nicaragua and the payments that people and
companies would have to make into the system it comes after five days of protest which have spread not just to the capital but other cities now why did president take a make that announcement well he's come under pressure not just from the united states and the european union but also from the u.n. and the pope they've all expressed concern about events in the country there's been concern also within the country about the heavy handed tactics that people have said the police have used against the protesters there have been multiple deaths including police officers and there are also been many injuries now the question will be if president takers climbdown is going to be enough to stop the protests they've become about more than just the issue of the social security payments but about the legitimacy of the president himself n.g.o.s and analysts have been saying for quite some time that the president's been seeking to undermine democratic
institutions to hold on for the power not just for himself but also for his family his vice president is also his wife and this student led movement they really driving this that's been going out into the streets have been calling into question this government president allègre along with the sort of carrot that he offered in terms of the social security payment also offered a sort of stick saying that if the protests do continue that the police and the authorities will be acting within the law he said to stop these protests he said such things happening in our country this can't carry on. well the ruling party candidate has won paraguayan presidential election mario abdul benito's from the colorado party took more than forty six percent of the vote but the result was closer than expected with his main rival a-frame l.a. winning close to forty three percent has pledged to support the pro-business

government itself being able to protect the the voter registration center the voting centers opened just last week it's part of the long process to get afghans properly registered allegations of fraud have long plagued elections in afghanistan the registration process is designed to guard against that the independent election commission says it hopes as many as fifteen million people will register for the parliamentary and district council elections but the election commissioner at mit's turnout so far is already low this latest blast will do little to reassure afghans it's worth the risk. this with a yawn al-jazeera syria's government has continued to pummel a suburb of the capital damascus to force out i saw fighters they've agreed to leave but still haven't surrounded the area they occupy which includes the yarmouk palestinian refugee camp is one of the last near the capital that has not fallen to

saw less still ahead but first donald trump is striking a cautious note the day after welcoming a pledge by north korea to end nuclear and missile tests the leaders of north and south korea meet on friday and historic talks between kim jong un and president donald trump could happen by june diplomatic editor james base has been given rare access to the capital pyongyang to find out where the trump is on their minds at all. i think. this is one way north koreans relax at the weekend. the last few days have been a diplomatic roller coaster because people enjoy the fun fair in pyongyang they're unaware of much of what's happened ordinary people have not been told the cia director came his secretly that their leader is negotiating with the us all that
he's planning a face to face meeting with the country's sworn enemy donald trump so when you ask people here about trump they tell you what they've been told repeatedly in the past by the state controlled media room come on among every korean gets furious when we hear what trump sense he threatens to annihilate the entire korean nation is even human he is a wolf. down by the river they were playing volleyball and. this is where i met a young medical student. i don't have the. idea of american people but american government i hate american imperialism and serial i don't like why. all the korean people hate the british so. no date old venue has yet been set for the meeting between supreme leader
kim jong un and president trump one report says the u.s. leader would like to meet him alone with only interpreters diplomats here have told me that would give kim who knows the nuclear issue intimately a big advantage kim jong un is half the age of donald trump but he's already run this country for more than six years and while the trumpet administration's policy on north korea has evolved during more the one year in office the north korean leader has built on the nuclear strategy he inherited from his father and from his grandfather james bays al jazeera young yeah. and i jarius president mohamad who will hadi is facing a backlash on social media that's after he appeared to question the work ethic of young people in his country many are angry after he told a commonwealth gathering in london the young nigerians feel entitled to do nothing
because they live in an oil rich nation. he did not put me under and i but i did i mean i do with the look in. one of my deliberate so i was afraid and i believe that my. time on my team did not let intercede enjoin you are lazy either not doing anything is because they have been being empowered is because you have improved by the what is required to empower the nigerian you one thing i know about every young person ajay is this we are very very innovative people we come up with ideas we come up with beings we create out of mocking the life and. we create a living we create everything we need out of nothing almost out of nothing in nigeria a controversial french immigration law has passed its first hurdle in the national assembly nearly two thirds of politicians voted for the bill which would impose
tough new conditions on asylum requests they refer to as more from paris. this was a vital piece of legislation for president to man your macro but it's taken a very long time a marathon in the national assembly it's taken them all week to vote on this and some nine hundred ninety nine amendments were added to this bill but it did pass comfortably but it also created divisions within manual macro's own party there was one m.p. who defected from the party there were several abstentions now many people within the liberal party the center party that michael formed have called it a repressive piece of legislation but michael has been very clear about why it's being pushed through because in twenty seventeen france had one hundred thousand asylum seekers and that's a record for france and also record within the european union for that year so he
wanted to try and separate out the economic migrants as he's called them and those who are genuinely seeking asylum trying to escape warfare or persecution in the own countries now what he's done is extend the amount of time the asylum seekers can spend in detention and also shorten the amount of time that they can launch their appeal now that is one of the most draconian measures we've seen and the party presence parties say the century they're trying to undermine the national front position on that where immigration has been such a a vote winner for the nationalists on the extreme right so he's determined to separate out these two things to make sure the france still is a liberal country which accepts genuine asylum seekers but also rejects those who are just economic migrants now it'll take a long time yet for the legislation to actually be enacted it has to go to the
senate and then has to come back to the national assembly there might even be more . amendments so we won't see this on the statute books until at least may or june but nevertheless. we're very pleased that at last this legislation has passed its first hurdle of the national assembly the u.k. has thousands of kilometers of inland waterways rivers and canals built to move goods in the nineteenth century well as roads get busier businesses and environmental groups have been trying to revive this forgotten transport network neve block a report on the. life of britain's waterways moves at an unhurried pace. rose parness pilots pleasure boats and reaches canal in london these wants to get to backwaters of attracting new life.
before i worked on the waterways i was close to leaving london i think there's something about the community that lives around the water is something about water in itself that's quite call me there's some activity that you can do down here this is a small section of a three thousand kilometer network of canals and navigable rivers and the q.k. maybe can also built in the early nineteenth century joining britain's industrial revolution to move heavy goods such as ion and coal today only five percent are used to transport goods most a simply about farm. but with british roads becoming increasingly congested environmental groups are encouraging more companies to move from wheels to water today there are more boats on the waterways than there were at the height of the industrial revolution but they tend to be used for leisure purposes for living and for holidays the canals have become a focus for revival so whether used to be kind of a national disgrace they now the focus to some of the some of the kind of biggest
urban regeneration projects across the country. shipping emits less carbon than other forms of transport according to government findings the most damaging way of hauling cargo is by road for air quality and costly to maintain. so why don't more companies use in the waterways water transport is slow only eight kilometers an hour in a city canals. where there's an attractive economy of scale the fast growing ports like this on london's river thames are exploiting the rivers being deep into allowed massive tankers closer to the capital. britain's waterways were once the arteries of the industrial revolution were the u.k. now poised to exit the new they could play another vital role in bringing the world's goods to the u.k. and the u.k.'s goods to the rest of the world. during the building of london's
olympic park two million tons of building material arrived at construction sites by water helping to deliver one of the greenest games in history several british supermarkets are now also conducting shipping trials of the country's waterways many of these industrial relics could soon play a role in steering the economy of the future. london. all right time for a quick break now but when we come back the murder of muslim clerics raising the specter of new rivalries yemen's deepening civil war. and we need the chicago beekeeper producing honey when you least expect it plus i had to feel. my funeral. enjoys his own unity as the arsenal manager speaks for the first time since announcing his resignation he tells coming up later with joe in sport.

has criticized the saudi led campaign for killing large numbers of civilians. at least twenty five muslim clerics have been murdered in southern yemen in the past two years most of those killed are said to be supporters of the ex our president and durable wanted hedi and his allies they point to growing rivalries between u.s. backed armed groups and heavies forces in the south a honda report. documents death provoked an outpouring of grief in the southern city of aden he's one of at least twenty five clerics preaches and religious scholars killed in the south of yemen in just over two years most of them in just the last six months. what is the crime what is the speculation we call on all. to do something no one has claimed responsibility for the killings twelve political parties have said they believe the killers targeted
clerics who supported yemen's excelled president of the drive to months or hardy and many reportedly had links to the islam party the yemeni branch of the muslim brotherhood and had these leading ally in the south i think it's obvious. that the religious belief and quite possibly because many of them to the islam party it's not clear shoes doing the talking although there are a widely held beliefs on the ground. by the u.a.e. . the killings focus attention on a new layer of complexity developing in yemen civil war the her things controlled this area in the north including the capital sana and are supported by iran they're fighting forces loyal to exiled president hadi whose power base is here in the self and includes aden al-qaeda controls these areas and black three years ago the saudi
led coalition stepped in to back hetty's forces. a coalition that includes the united arab emirates from that time the u.a.e. has concentrated on growing its influence in the south and large part by funding and training to yemeni groups each with different agendas and which appears to be a holds for the saudi led coalition one of them is the szabo army elite forces there a mix of hardline groups since a session ists who want the south to break away from the rest of yemen completely something saudi arabia is opposed to another is the security belt forces in aden they've been openly fighting had these forces the very group the saudi led coalition stepped in to support the forces don't necessarily want the same thing and it's quite possible that the governments of u.a.e. and saudi. likely different outcomes in yemen so the level below containing iranian
influence the killings have prompted dozens of religious leaders to abandon their mosques and seek refuge elsewhere. it's the latest twist in the three year long civil war which has killed thousands and threatened famine for millions of yemenis medium hond al-jazeera let's bring in the below holding in washington he is a former u.s. diplomat who served as the deputy chief of mission in yemen from two thousand and four to two thousand and seven thanks for being with us so let me ask you first of all what he what do you think is going on here if these murders are are all sunni affiliated as has been reported and it seems likely that the iraqis a behind it what will be their motivation for this. so there are some conflicting goals and conflicting alliances between solidary b.s.
and the united arab emirates in principle there are partners they liberate the saudis from the who is. another they've done that they're not quite sure what they're doing to some extent and saudi arabia is not going to slow or illegitimacy off the exide president had he who resides in riyadh and is helping the forces that support him the united arab emirates on the other hand has nor censorship goals in the south which is to draw all the principle of war to use them as auxiliaries for their own who are in dubai to that and they have supported forces that are in conflict with these forces. in the end the more important conflict but perhaps it's for more saudi arabia and the
united arab emirates these other two one optical systems and they are trying to support. what most yemenis want which is a secular republic a democratic republic there is an attempt to the types of systems that saudi arabia and the emirates have. in the end. i don't think their military goals are to ogress my three years of trying to accomplish something that they have not been able to accomplish and ultimately i'm not sure they have the proper motivation to truly help yemen get back on its feet and as you say in there did the saudis and moralities are united in their fight against the who ts in yemen but they did did interests of these two countries have been diverging for
a while haven't they what are the implications of that especially for the m well people one of the most obvious implication is the lack of law and order in the sounds if they had. their act together in the past three years they would have secured the south the area where the flu fears are no longer in control they would have established the government of the in ah then they have not been able to do that or they have not wanted to do that for the people of yemen the south is an example of what the so-called liberation would look like by the solid isn't that in there aren't these. they have not demonstrated that they have the true interests of yemen at heart do you get the sense that. when this war when it when they see this conflict began particularly from the point of view
of the saudis that they they they kind of got in over their head here because here we are years later still talking about this conflict. well yes the some accent this is true in that there was a new man in charge of hama and been so milan m.b.'s this is very much his war and i think he jumped into or a little too fast before thinking it through he jumped into with presumably or what he says the motive was to fight the iran when the iran wasn't really in yemen . and there was no exit strategy militarily exactly what do you hope to accomplish and you really want to talk them defeat off the with these or do you simply want to weaken them enough to then be able to bring them to the negotiating
table and offer them something they can live with they haven't succeeded in either direction or the other big question is what kind of a political system would you like to support in yemen and that is not at all clear in terms of the saudi perspective. in the end this is a big a muddle and the people of yemen have made a very high price for this so-called liberation the idea they're solid any of you is in alliance with forces on the ground that u.a.e. is interested in this the making is very troubling and the long term prospects of that are not good in the end if n.b.s. truly wants to be any gentle leader he should show some diplomatic because and he
should help the yemenis resolve their internal conflicts and then help reconstruct yemen in the direction he is thinking now as reckless. extremely destructive and it's not in the long term interests of his own country it is a very complicated and also very tragic situation unfolding in yemen right now we appreciate you helping us make sense of it thanks very much for being with us neville hawley in washington. our aid workers in gaza say palestinian protesters shot by israeli soldiers have suffered devastating injuries at least thirty nine a been killed and hundreds wounded in four weeks of protests against israel's blockade doctors without borders say it's treated more patients this month than all of twenty fourteen when israel launched its last war in gaza but as smith reports to this after injury the food become young innocent very separate schema that

republican senator rand paul has already said he will oppose the nomination and democrats don't think you'll do. enough to stand up to the president we didn't hear any evidence at that hearing for director pompei oh that he was willing to do that fire so no committee vote or it's crucial for donors trump it would be really bad for donald trump with a republican senate failed to achieve confirmation of his chosen secretary of state donald trump thinks that might pompeo will be a better fit for the job as his top diplomat someone he knows someone he believes he can trust thinks like the president and will echo his view on important issues on the global stage senators on the foreign relations committee have to decide if that's something they want i want fish or al-jazeera washington a sunday is world earth day an annual event that encourages millions of people to find ways to better protect the environment in chicago beekeepers on doing their
