5:02 pm
the donald trump is just hours away from announcing whether the united states will stay with the iran nuclear deal the us president tweeted on monday that he'll be making a declaration at the white house days ahead of the deadline for him to extend a waiver of sanctions against iran that some u.s. democratic party said this is their written to mr trump in a last ditch effort to try to persuade him from walking away from the deal and this follows a flurry of high level diplomatic meetings in washington between u.s. officials and their european allies many of whom fear that mr trump is making a mistake ahead of the much awaited decision iran's president said time around will send on its own feet regardless of whether it faces new sanctions or not. this government's plan from day one has been based on having honest good constructive and effective interactions with the world as we consider this
5:03 pm
a win win situation useful for others and for us as well well it may result that in some exceptional situations from time to time someone may take power in a country and cause an exceptional situation these kinds of things happen on the world stage and we will get past it we may have problems for two or three months but anyway we will get past the problem our basic policy of having constructive interactions is working with the world or i let's go to the white house now and our correspondent there is kimberly how could an understatement is it to say that the world is waiting to hear what president trump has to say about this nuclear deal and in fact that many of the european allies are not giving up on this still trying to persuade him to stick with the deal. that's right you mentioned how heavily invested the european allies were we had the visit of the french president annual mccraw german chancellor angela merkel here to the white house hoping to convince
5:04 pm
the president will that last minute discussion still continuing in fact we are told that the french president manual holding a telephone call with u.s. president donald trump as we speak that was scheduled for to take place right now and as a result there certainly is this effort to perhaps persuade donald trump before he makes that plant announcement eight hundred g.m.t. that this is the best way to stop iran from getting a nuclear bomb in fact it is the iran agreement that was negotiated in twenty fifteen but as you mentioned also there are democratic senators that are also working very hard to try and convince the president sending a letter on monday evening to the president urging him in fact not to withdraw from this agreement arguing that this could allow iran to resume what they called nuclear activities and could isolate america's closest partners again pointing to the european allies that have been trying to convince donald trump for so long and
5:05 pm
can be let's just remind ourselves of what the possible options are for president trump because many people of knowledge along with the president himself that there are fools to this agreement and that it only covers one particular aspect of of iranian behavior which is its nuclear program and that there are concerns about other aspects of iranian behavior so the president does have the option perhaps of working with his allies to to bolster the existing agreement or maybe work on a subsidiary. a separate deal in the arrangement that the europeans might actually concur with so he does have a few options. right ok let's talk about the options the president has because there are a number of ways that he'd go he would withdraw from this agreement but then decide not to reimpose sanctions he could decide to do both and then delay the sort of reimposing of sanctions there are
5:06 pm
a number of options available many here in the united states around the world believe that donald trump may have a delay period before those sanctions are re-imposed essentially it would hit iran's oil and banking sectors but many people say this would really wombs the deal but not kill the deal because you have to remember this was negotiated not just between iran and the united states but also we have germany for the u.k. france china russia so certainly the agreement would still be intact but severely limited and then you talk about the concerns that donald trump has those concerns are shared by other u.s. allies as well concern about the fact that it doesn't address activity beyond twenty twenty five it does not address some concerns about military presence by iran in the region and also the ballistic missile program so certainly there are arguments that yes we understand that there are some concerns we share those concerns but the difference of opinion lies in how to deal with it the european allies making the case keep this twenty fifteen agreement attacks will address
5:07 pm
a supplemental agreement for those other issues that may not be the way donald trump chooses to go all right from kimberly thank you very much. well iran as you know is a large oil and gas producer and that has helped it survive decades of economic isolation and it's something that iranian leaders hope they can do again. reports. from this fairground it's difficult to tell that iran is going through a diplomatic crisis. iran's leaders are highlighting the merits of the country's century old oil industry and they're looking for foreign investment to the tune of two hundred billion dollars. already i have a recommendation for foreign companies that are here if these companies want to have an important role in the market of iran in the region they should try to cooperate with iranian companies and do their job as they have chosen iran as a partner iran is not a country one could overlook in the global market and energy sector they may delay
5:08 pm
or development but relying on enormous domestic potential god willing we will continue our plans. but in the face of us sanctions it's a hard sell the fate of the joint comprehensive plan of action more commonly known as the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal has become the most important factor for doing business with iran. but the issue was so provocative no one was willing to speak about it on camera there are many european countries represented here but the birds are smaller than they were in previous years especially right after the nuclear deal was signed many of the exhibitors we spoke to say they like doing business with iranians and see enormous potential in iran's market but for now no big deals are being signed and no one is making any real money it would seem that scare tactics by washington are having the desired effect. iranian companies here are worried about bad economic weather. but say this is just the storm before the calm beneath the. international companies to come to iraq
5:09 pm
but the absence of them stated we can not solve the trade or existing facilities but developed or it just fits. companies like this one operated by the iranian revolutionary guard corps will no doubt continue to play an important part in the country's economic strategies had a ruse missile on the go you about horny than you are every day americans making new excuse they want to conclude every year in a way to benefit themselves so should we give up no we are a powerful country with great resources in the world for example in oil and gas we rank first and this is also true about other resources iran's growth potential makes it a difficult market for investors to ignore so there is some optimism one businessman told us there is always a light at the end of the tunnel but the burning of bridges between washington and
5:10 pm
to her is only making that tunnel longer same bus ravi old a zero to one the chinese president xi jinping has met the north korean leader kim jong un for the second time this year north korean state media says the talks which took place in the chinese city of delhi on spy and its words trust and honesty china is one of north korea's main diplomatic and economic allies the relations have been strained over pyongyang's nuclear program the pair held their losses in beijing in march during kim's first foreign trip as leader kim of course is expected to meet donald trump in an historic meeting shuttle for later this month more now from our china correspondent. well as is often the case on these occasions it was left to state television to confirm what many had suspected that kim jong un had indeed made his second secretive visit to china this time though he wasn't in the capital beijing but in the northeastern city of darrien not far from the north
5:11 pm
korean border kim was accompanied by his sister who continues to play a high profile in north korean diplomacy now it's reported in chinese state media that kim jong un said that as long as some countries desist from a hostile attitude or making threats to north korea then there was no reason why denuclearization on the korean peninsula shouldn't proceed now of course when he refers to some countries he's talking about the united states now kim jong un is due to meet president donald trump in the next few weeks and of course just a few weeks ago china's foreign minister one year was also in the north korean capital pyongyang i think from this meeting it's clear once more that in the she kim relationship kim is very much the junior partner in the various pictures that were released of their meetings it had the feel of a sort of big brother little brother encounter and of course the chinese side had
5:12 pm
thought very carefully about the backdrop to these talks the two were shown walking along the beach in the background was the yellow sea there were sea girls it was all very picturesque and i think it was supposed to illustrate that north korea and china are moving together coming closer again after a deep strain in their relations and i think it was almost if kim was saying no matter what happens in your talks with president donald trump china will always be your friend. i mean he is new prime minister nicole passion yun his address opposes after being elected by palm and after weeks of anti-government protests the massive astray sions response by the long time leader. plans to stay that's going to name sums up the mood in central square. was republic square vibrated with excitement.

5:19 pm
a little bit frosty and they've now improved largely because of common interests like trade when hey reports from the japanese capital. we may not see any major announcements from the summit but the mere fact that it's taking place is significant given that it is the first time that the south korean president and the chinese premier league pitching have visited japan in an official capacity the japanese prime minister shinzo are they will hold bilateral discussions with his counterparts while they are here in tokyo but most interest will center around the trilateral summit where it's thought that the situation in north korea will be at the top of the agenda following that into korean summit that was held on the twenty seventh of april it's expected that after this summit the three nations will issue a joint. statement supporting the declaration that was announced at the end of that into korea and some of that they would work towards the denuclearization of the
5:20 pm
korean peninsula but that doesn't mean that the three nations here are all on the same page it's thought for example that china may well favor offering financial economic incentives to pyongyang as it moves along the path towards denuclearization whereas the japanese prime minister favors continuing a tough stance against pyongyang until it sees concrete our progress made in its denuclearization plans trade will also be discussed there is a trilateral trade deal that's been negotiated for the past five years or so those talks will continue here in tokyo as will negotiations around the regional comprehensive economic partnership that's a sixteen nation trade bloc that was initiated by southeast asian nations but the negotiations in recent times have really been driven by china saudi arabia says is trying to resolve the disagreement over a yemeni island which is occupied by troops from the united arab emirates protesters on the culture in the arabian sea and demanding u.a.e.
