a move that many feel will be the end of the iran nuclear deal my camp aoe is much closer to president on this issue than his predecessor rex tillerson was tillerson was sympathetic to the european point of view which is the deal should be strengthened and not abandoned he lost his job essentially over that micron pale will also no doubt be talking about the situation in syria during this visit president trump has called on gulf countries do more to stabilize the situation there in terms of troops and funding from saudi arabia pompei o heads to israel and then to jordan or room and turned over foreign policy committee publishing he says the troubled ministrations approach to diplomacy is likely to change with time. president trump eventually will. move toward a globalist position what is that a globalist position is one where allies count much more than your campaign
promises who did he have come to washington macross he had merkel and he would have to rescind may but to be surveying is not in shape to travel anywhere including europe probably so i think that the global institutions will set in in addition. i have had the opportunity to brief my campaign on the nuclear deal he knows it by heart he doesn't want to kill it he wants to fix it he might come pale wants to utilize the threat of force in order to the thought of not force but withdrawing from the deal as a way of. moving forward on the renegotiation of the deal iran says no old there's no way it will negotiate when i was a diplomat in vienna and stockholm madrid i had the opportunity to learn something about proposal counter-proposal proposal counter-proposal each side then comes up
with less than it want it and all of a sudden you have a deal but that deal won't last very long so just like the nuclear cord of july august twenty fifth thing is not going to stand something will do something will replace it well my pump is visit to saudi arabia comes back to see rebels in yemen find a new round of missiles into the kingdom that this follows assad led coalition a strike that killed two rebel leaders in yemen is capital last week a high ranking rebel commander was killed in a strike thousands gathered in sanaa tell him between the ripples. he supposes descend on the center of santa there protesting against the death of the most senior who the official to be killed by the saudi led coalition in yemen's three year war salah the mad died in an airstrike on the coastal hood data province last week. maurya you will get revenge for the death of the president of the
republic. and i have a message for the saudi aggressors you bring invaders here from all over the world we will kill them and we will burn them to move you the leaders and dozens of fighters were killed in another saudi led coalition air strike on saturday saudi state television says the strike targeted a high level meeting at the head of these interior ministry in santa after three years of fighting and no end to the war in sight analysts say the saudi led coalition is trying something new the saudis are stepping up their game. targeting higher higher level officials and the hope is as well are also are there also to stepping up their game firing more and more ballistic missiles into saudi territory i think the message is clear that they still believe both parties still believe that they're the only solution is a military solution but it's a risky strategy the fighters say their mood determined than ever to continue their fight for control of yemen. this protest was made for president saleh
osama and we tell him that we will keep going on your path and we will not drift away his death strengthened us and provided us with resistance god willing we will not drift away. it's a conflict that's already killed thousands of people and caused the united nations says is the world's one humanitarian crisis now there are signs of an escalation from both sides saudi arabia says it intercepted the missiles fired from yemen targeting the city of g.'s than victoria gate and b. al jazeera. says in subsidies for who see missiles fired from yemen toggling the southern coastal city of jews on the rebel say they thought eight ballistic rockets aimed at economic assets. now the u.s. president told trump powers avoided attending the annual white house correspondents' dinner for the second. instead he's attending
a campaign rally in michigan last year trump became the first president in thirty six years to skip the event the college scholarship fund raiser celebrates the relationship between the media and the white house press secretaries sarah huckabee some of it is taking trump's place and can expect a grilling from comedian host in the show rules. brooke is following events for us from washington d.c. and of course the correspondents' dinner without the chief guest present for the second time said being quite a clear message to the press is that old that's right and actually the president sent a message to the press from michigan he said when he began his speech this evening that he'd much rather be in michigan than in washington attending this correspondents' dinner and you know the message is that he sees the press is an adversary a few months ago he said that the press was an enemy of the american people which is a rather sad statement to make and he's actually missing an opportunity by not being
at this correspondents' dinner president's abuse of this dinner in the past to you know hope fun at the media but also to poke fun at themselves and it's a way of humanizing them it helps them connect with the media and it also helps them connect with the public as well so in many ways that this is this is a missed opportunity but again the president has set this very adversarial relationship with the presidency took office and it continues of course while he's not many of his close aides will be you might say to take the flak. absolutely you mentioned sarah huckabee sanders is going to be on the day of this evening she will be speaking instead of him and she'll be poking fun at the media and actually they'll probably be you know will be people poking fun right back at her kellyanne conway is there this evening his counsel aranesp reverse priebus who
was his chief of staff is there as well and even though the president isn't there you know that there are going to be jokes targeted at him in his absence but we'll leave it there for now and see what comes out of touch as the day progresses thank you russia's foreign minister has accused the u.s. of trying to divide to syria departs. made the comments in moscow while meeting his turkish and radian counterparts to discuss the war in syria the meeting prepares the groundwork for the ninth round of a start of the talks to be held next month the three countries believe it's the only way to ending the violence in the seven year syrian war. while we have building options for peace some of the other colleagues are trying to destroy the results of a joint constructive if it's not even following the international law like in the recent operation by the u.s. u.k. and france against syria roy challenge. this meeting was
a way for russia turkey and iran co-sponsors of the standard talks to set the scene for the next round of those negotiations which are in a couple of week's time a the fourteenth and fifteenth the three countries here although they have been pushing these negotiations into their ninth rounds now. do have disagreements they have disagreements over the future of president bashar al assad's turkey has always thought that he shouldn't be part of syria's future and turkey also disagrees with russia on iran over the recent u.s. u.k. and french airstrikes which were response to what those three countries said was a chemical weapons attack in duma now turkey supports that view and thinks that the russian perspective that this has set back the political process in syria is not necessarily true. but the turks do have criticisms of the
united states saying that they should give up their ongoing support for the kurds when we do get to the next round of a stand of sorts in a couple weeks we're likely to see. a similar situation to previous times which is that the opposition are reluctant to come now the route the opposition has always felt that the. talks were essentially a sideshow a distraction from what should be taking place which is the resumption of negotiations in geneva the official u.n. sponsored talks and the opposition has long felt that water started as essentially doing is just hollowing out geneva stripping it of all the main political platforms political points and essentially giving cover for russia and the syrian government forces on the ground to continue pushing home their military
advantage. now the dogs comers at least eighteen people have been reportedly killed in syria's largest palestinian refugee camp over the past twenty four hours the syrian government is trying to retake several neighborhoods in southern damascus from i still find. believe half of the yet to move refugee camp in the area has been destroyed in a week of violence the u.n. says some three and a half thousand people fled the camp. where hundreds of palestinians attended the burial of a fifteen year old boy killed by israeli forces on the gaza israel border the palestinian health ministry is said as. died of a gunshot wound to the head three others are killed or were killed during protests on friday about nine hundred people were injured in the clashes putting pressure on doctors and other medical staff the fourteen people have been killed since demonstrations began late last month that demanding a right to return for refugees and descendants to want is now israeli territory
