tonight i'm here to tell you one thing. iran. israel's prime minister says he has secret files which prove iran covertly pursued nuclear weapons. down in jordan this is al jazeera lawyer from doha also coming up a court in australia told us one of the facts comes most senior officials to stand trial on sex abuse charges. a decisive day in armenia the parliament so expected to approve the opposition leader as the new prime minister. and one of taiwan's last remaining allies cuts diplomatic ties to extend its relations with china. a propaganda show and
a pack of lies that's the reaction from iran to allegations by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu regarding its nuclear program at a press conference in tel aviv netanyahu despite what he called conclusive proof that iran has weapons program one suggested u.s. officials say they believe israeli accusations meanwhile the e.u. and germany say then investigate the claims but to call him as more from washington . it was an inauspicious start a technical glitch with the audio meant a brief delay describing a highly sophisticated intelligence operation this was an innocent looking compound it looks like a dilapidated warehouse. but from the inside israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu says his intelligence agents tracked the paperwork from an iranian nuclear weapons program to this building and that they were able to take this. proudly displaying paperwork and disks he says were from iran according to his own
visuals the program ended in two thousand and three but he alleged it continued in secret using these visuals and television performance to send the message the iran deal the nuclear deal is based on lies it's based on iranian lies and the rain in deception one hundred thousand files right here prove that their logs at the white house it was clear the u.s. president was impressed by what he saw i think of anything what's happening today and what's happened over the last little while and what we've learned. has really shown that i've been one hundred percent right that matters because by may twelfth the president will decide if the u.s. sanctions will continue to be waved under the iran nuclear deal negotiated between the u.s. iran and five other countries around foreign minister dismissed the new allegations tweeting breaking the boy you can't stop crying wolf is at it again undeterred by
cartoon fiasco at unga you can only fool some of the people so many times the president has said nobody knows what he's going to do perhaps trying to build suspense but there seems a lot less of that after what he saw on his t.v. pedicle hain al-jazeera washington. well the white house has made a small but very significant correction of its response to israel's latest allegations against iran a written statement from the white house press secretary initially said the information released by israel shows iran has a robust plan to stine nuclear weapons program shortly after it was modified to say iran had such a program well the white house is calling it a clerical error well jonathan crystal is a fellow at the world policy institute he says netanyahu is presentation doesn't prove anything. netanyahu has not shown any evidence that iran has violated its agreement or anything that you know comes after july two thousand and fifteen at
all so i'm a little bit confused as to what the whole performance was about beyond really just trying to confuse president trump and provide ammunition for him to be able to withdraw from the deal on may twelfth we're talking about technology that is decades old it's really the ability to do it and to actually have the centrifuges to. enrich the uranium to actually carry out the process that's the actual very hard part and so you know even iran retaining what it seems like they have retained i don't think really gives them it's sort of to be expected and it doesn't really mean there's any sort of secret program if you think about it logically right iran has no particular reason to violate the deal you know when they were developing their nuclear weapons in the two thousand went on for a long time but if you look at the two thousand and one two three four five years you had over one hundred thousand u.s.
troops on one side you had over one hundred thousand u.s. troops on the other side and you had a country the united states that had invaded one of its neighbors for no one of iran's neighbors for no particular reason the invasion of iraq and so they had a serious concern about what could protect them from the u.s. now i'm not a fan of iran getting nuclear weapons i hope that they never do. but that sort of change there's no reason why now when the u.s. is sort of war weary when our presence on their borders is minimal why they would break this deal. it makes no sense it's the second day of the palestine national council's first official meeting in twenty two years the rare assemblies discussing critical issues although several key functions have decided not to attend top of the list is whether or not to suspend the palestinians recognition of israel force it recounts day one for us from ramallah. more than six hundred surviving members
of the palestine liberation organizations main representative body arrived for its first full meeting in twenty two years and attempt to revitalize an aging organization according to some to democratise it with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas hand-picking new members how democratic could it really be it's a step in the direction of again demise in the vitalizing our institutions i think we should strengthen the p.l.o. not weaken it i believe we should take this is but then. there's that but then the . challenges we're facing including the so-called. this opening session was dominated by the palestinian president's freewheeling near two hour speech heavy on history light on policy the emphasis was on the vital importance of the pianos role in the face of israeli aggression and in advance of the publication of donald trump's peace plan. and if this council is harmed then the palestinian dream me seriously harmed therefore we were very determined to create the session we were
hoping that everybody who wanted the future of palestine and the palestinian people we wished them to be here but they don't fortunately prefer to be abroad but this meeting is as much about process as policy putting the right people in place transferring powers from this national council to a smaller body more closely aligned with us than porton thing is that a delegation for city from the national council to center cause it. so if anything happens to a woman if he wants to quit if something happens there is this central council who can actually act as the of the law and can elect and you'll put one challenge to such legitimacy the continued split with hamas in gaza in the midst of the bloody protests the recent weeks. recommended children be kept away from the gaza border and israeli sniper fire near the
beginning of mahmoud abbas a speech was a declaration that there could be no palestinian state without gaza being part of it but efforts to reconcile his fatah faction with hamas which controls gaza have folded so badly that to call them efforts really does stretch a point at this stage and there is no hamas representation here at this meeting from gaza hamas as leader delivered a preemptive denunciation of the p. and c. meeting. led me to be shocked when i'm in a mass confirms that any council that doesn't carry the unification idea of the palestinian ranks is a council that never expresses the whole of the palestinians it is a council hits the unity of our people and it's the organization and its legitimacy as representation over all palestinians. the real work of this meeting begins now as man one of us tries to solidify his power and ensure continued backing for his policies are a force that al-jazeera ramallah. the armenian politicians due to vote for
a new prime minister opposition leader nicole became the sole candidate for the post after a deadline passed on monday without other candidates registering as the culmination of two weeks of protests that saw a long time leader. stick a robin foster walker joins us live now from the armenian capital yerevan robin so i suppose the big question are the republicans largely to back question young for prime minister. sharon nobody at this stage i think is willing to say with certainty that that is what they are going to do it's it's really very exciting times here i mean it's on the square there's a great deal of expectation. that they're ready to celebrate this moment because in a couple of hours that photo is expected to go ahead and he's gathering inside the parliament and they will be an extraordinary session will they will be talking about how and whether to nominate the prime minister but the republicans understood
last night to have had their own emergency meeting at this according to the opposition leader himself nicko passion yan who was up at three am. telling the opposition telling all his supporters that possibly the republicans were actually going to try and block his domination all failed to turn up today. but remember that will he needs really from namely six seats in order to have the majority of parliament say he's just six republicans. to switch saw it's a nice back piece people's candidate as he's become known. and you know this really will be an extraordinary change for the for i mean it's this isn't just about getting a new prime minister this is about the first steps towards. i knew him for a media politics. i love him so when i was pushing me and said to the people want
to they expect. when i saw him last night on the square he told everyone to come here today i don't leaven a clock and celebrate this new tool and. again when he was speaking last night he insisted that everybody came in as large numbers as possible because this is what he depends on. the will of the people and it's clear over the last few weeks how he does have absolutely the majority of armenians backing him for this position so he's he's told them to get ready to celebrate but he even if he gets the nomination of prime minister he's going to have a lot more to do before he spelled it revolution as he calls it. is complete the next steps will be to reform the electoral. codes or at least make changes
that will enable parliamentary elections to be held extrude republic metry elections to go ahead that would do away with some of the things that have balanced have led them have made them. unlucky in accounts a bit lacking in transparency and made them party weighted towards the ruling republican party so he's got to change make electoral reforms ahead of a vote that would give him a fighting chance but you know people i've been speaking to is saying that even if that doesn't happen there's been some change in the armenian mentality amongst the people they have realized that together if they come out as a if down onto the streets they have learned that they can exercise their will and they can make independent choices and decisions about who they want to be the next leader of the our media and republic so really today is going to be a crucial vote and a very critical day for all media people and all media politics and it still everything to play for at this state. i had to run for
a walk and they had no median topical robin thank you. now don't trump has decided to delay the new steel and aluminum tariffs on canada the e.u. and mexico until june he's also reportedly reached an agreement in principle with argentina australia and brazil it's obvious that south korea would also be exempted but she have a chance she has more from washington. the discussions with the europeans in particular have been described as fraught europe holding firm that they will not impose voluntary quotas on their steel and aluminum exports to the united states as the white house is requiring and in fact the e.u. saying that they will impose tariffs on u.s. goods like bourbon and jeans and holly davidson motorcycles if the u.s. does go ahead with tariffs on their goods wilbur ross the commerce secretary was pushing for some sort of delay he's convinced donald trump as for the other countries we knew actually about the u.s. and canada that was announced over the weekend the negotiations there lumped in
with the negotiations over the north american free trade agreement lots of positive noises but some sort of agreements maybe maybe in the works from mid may and then the three other countries that were mentioned in this proclamation were argentina australia and brazil they are out of the danger of tyrus as long as the agreement that's going to that has been put into into play in principle is followed through within the next thirty days south korea already had agreed to putting a quarter on its steel and aluminum exports so they are also no longer in danger of tariffs. and you alliance between china and the dominican republic has outraged taiwan taipei says it's deeply upset by the relationship between both countries the dominican republic had been one of the strongest diplomatic allies with taiwan edge and brown has more from beijing. well the dummy can republic may be a small country but its decision to sever ties with taipei and recognize beijing still amounts nevertheless to a major diplomatic loss for taiwan it's just ten months since another small country
panama also sever ties with taipei just nineteen countries now have diplomatic relations with taiwan and it seems that china's strategy is simply wants to isolate taiwan as much as possible and also to exclude it to prevent its participation in a number of international organizations well in the past taipei has accused beijing of playing a diplomatic money game and says it's a game it's no longer prepared to pay now beijing of course regards taiwan as part of its territory and is deeply suspicious and occasionally very antagonistic towards taiwan's independence leaning president zine in when and they have warned in the past that if any time when he's leader were to declare independence than china would seize back the island republic by force. time for a short break here on al-jazeera when we come back more on the international crackdown of a modern day slavery. and why pigeon racing is the next big thing in sri lanka
