theory in teheran of a donald trump's decision to pull out of the iran nuclear deal but europe val's to stand by the agreement. hello i'm maryam namazie in london you're watching al-jazeera also coming up malaysia's veteran acts leader mattera mohamed says he's won the country's closely fought election three americans released by north korea head home with us secretary of state might pay zero. a gunman loach coordinated attacks in the afghan capital battling security forces for al as.
iran supremely says donald trump's decision to pull the united states out of the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal is silly and superficial excuse the u.s. president of lying and his threatened to quit the landmark agreement if the remaining while power is called off a trade guarantees. the reports from. the video after the united states tour of. iran started on former members of parliament into one burned a printout of the international power. and the american flag a show of anger and disappointment over what they say is a mistake by washington i doubt although. if europe an important countries like russia and china fill this international vacuum perhaps that will be a way to continue otherwise the islamic republic of iran will bring the us to its senses with its nuclear actions they have to know that under such circumstances iran has no commitment to remain in the nuclear position it was in before the
iranians woke up to headlines that highlight the country's internal divisions moderates who are currently in government want the deal to go on without trump hardliner stress the united states cannot be trusted and the agreement should be completely scrapped but both sides are bracing for an economic impact this is your division. the withdrawal means more pressure will be exerted on the people and the country will go back to the days of resorting to smuggling to bring in goods and bypass sanctions i on wednesday iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei drew a line in the sand show me a beaut. it is sure to go hard for you all heard last night the cheap and impudent remarks of the us president there were maybe more than ten lies more he says he threesome both the establishment and the iranian nation that he will do this and that and i will tell him on behalf of the iranian people mr trump like hell you will. while there is
a sliver of hope for the deal to survive commonly said he knows iran is asking the remaining signatories for the impossible to stand by iran and ignore the global financial threat posed by the united states has. now said that the agreement will stay in place with participation of the three european countries i do not trust these three countries. while the full impact of renewed sanctions have yet to materialize on iranian streets traditional chants of death to america are getting louder once again perhaps the clearest sign of iran's anger was a message from the supreme leader to the american president in it he said that many u.s. presidents have died in their bones that decomposed and the trump two will return to dust and become food for worms but the islamic republic company says it will remain standing the same bus ravi olders here at the wrong. as a cabinet meeting
a few hours ago want to iran against assuming its nuclear ambitions i would advise iran not to start their nuclear program i would advise them very strongly if they do there will be very severe consequence ok well tribes also threaten sanctions against any other country with links to iran that could dash hopes for the remaining signatories as they try to salvage the new deal and it's likely to mean any and all the trade dispute between the u.s. and some of its allies as paul brennan explains from. any nation that helps around in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the united states the message was clear america is out and the other signatories had better follow but they're not going without a fight. it is it is unique this makes the united states the world's economic police and i think that's not an acceptable situation but.
we will look at the implications that the withdrawal of the us has for european companies and how the europeans can respond together. france germany the e.u. in the u.k. china and russia want to maintain the twenty fifteen agreement and iran has expressed its willing to but all sides understand the trade is the critical issue iran's acceptance of the nuclear restrictions was always dependent on the other signatories ability to deliver economic benefits to tehran without economic benefits is frankly nothing in it for the iranians and so if president trumps sanctions force the signatories to cease trading with iran then the deal is surely dead. since the twenty fifteen deal numerous international companies have promised billions of dollars of investment in iran among the biggest the aerospace giants boeing and airbus have signed deals reportedly worth seventeen billion dollars and
ten billion dollars respectively the french oil giant total has contracts worth four point eight billion dollars and the automotive group persia has invested four hundred seventy five million dollars can europe really protect a globalized companies from the threats of u.s. sanctions what we. are both sides are protecting a war a company because we should know so. at the end what with the promise of law and the american law it's no applicable law here in europe and it's now up to do more here in germany there is no basis for what he is doing the iran nuclear deal enable trade between iran and the e.u. to double to almost twelve billion dollars for the first half of twenty seventeen and china exported nearly eight billion dollars of goods to iran in the second half
of last year a twenty two percent increase to defend that business france is preparing to launch a complaint against america with the world trade organization and the european union is examining so-called blocking legislation there will be frantic shuttle diplomacy at the highest level in the coming days paul brennan al-jazeera beilin. malaysia's opposition a demo had to mohammed says he has won enough seats in parliament to form the next government if confirmed the result will end the nearly sixty year wall of prime minister najib razak coalition barris and national a simple majority of one hundred twelve seats is required by a party or alliance an auditor will start saying he joins us live now from kuala lumpur what's the latest on the result. well it's still a little bit murky now mahathir is claiming victory but he's got enough seats to
form the majority in parliament but the official results from the election commission puts the opposition alliance with one hundred and six seat teeny one hundred twelve seats to be able to form parliament to be able to form the government the next government so it's also a little bit murky but he is claiming victory and in a press conference just a couple of minutes earlier he said he's already informed the palace the king he will be sworn in at nine am tomorrow as the next prime minister of malaysia now however the other side that's the ruling alliance hasn't yet can feed it defeat the hasn't been any statesman from the prime minister from the cats make a prime minister of malaysia. he was supposed to hold a press conference here a couple of hours ago but he never showed up in support to have long left there's no one here left and we understand that there was a meeting at the prime minister's house a couple of cabinet can take a cabinet ministers attend at that meeting and they've said they will hold
a press conference at eleven on the day morning so we've got one side claiming victory the other side not conceding defeat yet and it's still a little bit murky because the official results on not. out in total get he's nineteen years old how come back with this potentially before my tear mohammed . it's extraordinary i mean if he really does become the next prime minister of malaysia he would be the oldest statesman this is a man who's already ruled the country for more than twenty years he retired and he's returned to politics it's a remarkable comeback and his return really has galvanized the opposition coalition they were made up of three quite separate distinct polities very disparate coalition that banded together because of the. one reason to get rid of the party that the ruling alliance of the sea is corrupt has ruled this country for more than
sixty years and yet mahathir it was a part of that but he returned to politics because of the corruption that surrounding the polity that surrounding. as well as the state investment fund where millions of dollars have been alleged to be misappropriated from the fund and not just denies wrongdoing but that clearly was an issue that has. that that was on voters' minds and the other issue that really perhaps helped the opposition alliance win votes is the rising cost of living there was really a lot of anger among the electorate at the rising cost of living and they blamed the goods and services tax which the government posed three years ago on that and mahathir and his opposition alliance policies had campaigned on the platform of promising to remove that tax within one hundred days of coming into power i will thank you very much from kuala lumpur floor it's really staying across the latest
as we wait for confirmation of that election result donald trump says his highly anticipated meeting with north korea's kim jong un will not take place in the demilitarized zone on the korean peninsula has more details about the meeting will be announced within days three americans who were being held by pyongyang are traveling back to the u.s. with secretary of state mike peo at you to land within an hour trump says he will meet them at andrews air force base in maryland their release is seen as a gesture of good will head of the summit that's going to have to a white house correspondent can really help it so three americans have been released by north korea does this help lay the groundwork for that story summit between kim. well donald trump said that in fact he in his exact words he said i appreciate kim jong un for doing this certainly this is being viewed as a gesture of goodwill and certainly the united states happy that the condition of
the three who were detained significantly better than that of auto warm beer who of course was released last june and he was in a vegetative state and later died of his injuries believed to be sustained well in captivity in north korea so certainly the u.s. very encouraged by what they've seen so far the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei was saying in fact that they were in good health they were able to get on the plane without any sort of assistance are now being treated in japan before heading to the united states for further medical testing now the u.s. president certainly looking towards this in terms of that meeting that is still to be determined terms of daytime in fact donald trump speaking about this at a cabinet meeting being very sort of sketchy about the details when talking to reporters. because it was the words the sun was going to take place. within three days within three days which is working or it. it will not be.
it really is there a slight possibility that this meeting might not happen. absolutely in fact reporters asked donald trump about that saying you know is it possible this couldn't happen he said that everything could be scuttled in his words so don't trump is always left that possibility open he certainly is encouraged by the fact that the groundwork for these talks have been positive so far this being a goodwill gesture at the release of the hostages might pump a zero said he was in north korea for a total of thirteen hours and spoke directly with kim jong un the north korean leader for approximately ninety minutes donald trump was asked if just getting to this stage was a big deal whether or not even as some of suggested deserve the nobel prize for this he seemed to shrug off that suggestion but did say that he does see this is an opportunity for a chance he said to make a good deal for the world we'll have to see where well thanks so much kimberly how

particularly so for israel's prime minister arriving for russia's victory day military parade was an astute courtesy call the holiday celebrates the soviet role in defeating naziism and vladimir putin believe the world isn't grateful enough for russia's sacrifice a. special you. today some try to face from history the fate of the nation but say . view of the world from slavery from extermination from the horrors of the holocaust they try to distort the events and the true heroes of the gotten and by history really written this daughter we will never allow this to happen. but netanyahu wasn't here to argue about history he was here to talk about what's happening now in syria one of netanyahu concerns is russia's intentions to send the syrians the s. three hundred air defense system the previous generation of interceptor missiles he watched drive past him when moscow more importantly he wants to know whether putin
is still listening to his worries about iran. it's difficult to believe that seventy years after the holocaust in the middle east there's a country that wants to eliminate israel it's a good occasion to discuss this problem with the russia's military intervention in syria has succeeded in making it a relevant power that governments in the middle eastern region have to talk to now but most goes finding that its partnership with tehran is testing the limits of a previously decent working relationship with israel jerusalem appears to be reaching breaking point israel has already shown its readiness to strike iranian targets inside syria on tuesday nights there were reports of more colorful direct constants in israel and iran in syria will be disastrous for russia and that's why russia will do every sink to try to avoid this kind of collusion to use

congress and federal courts are requested be handed over and on both she was sticking to a nuremberg defense she was just following orders and she thought that they were legal the problem for those who are skeptical of her nomination is it's very difficult then to understand what she actually thinks about torture which actually thinks about destroying evidence and those are important issues for the next director of the cia she tried to assure senators around the u.s. public by saying she has a very strong moral compass then in the end when pushed she wouldn't say that torture was immoral at least the torture we saw post nine eleven and she suggested it wasn't even a cia issue because it's no longer the cia's drawable to interrogate prisoners. hundreds of people have protested in montenegro after the latest attack on a journalist in the balkan country the protesters in the capital polled said the government has not done enough to tackle violence against the press have been a number of incidents in recent years including on tuesday when
