when people need to be heard. right he's been there a few jomo still in his life it's not a known show and the story needs to be told we do stories that have been passed on the suspect by testifying that all of the law to make sure that the bad guys behind backs al jazeera has teams on the ground to bring new documentaries and live news on air and on the. scud things sanctions world powers come up with a plan to keep trading with iran and void u.s. countermeasures.
11:49 am
hello i'm sam this is al jazeera. live from the house so coming up. i'm going to be meeting with chairman kim in the not too distant future. the u.s. president raises hopes of getting the story of nuclear talks with north korea back on track. the u.s. condemns moscow's decision to give syria and advanced the air defense missile system. and a stark warning the u.n. humanitarian chief says famine could strike at any time in war torn yemen. in a major snub to the united states the e.u. says it will set up a new mechanism to enable trade with iran to get around washington sanctions it
11:50 am
follows the trumpet ministrations withdrawal from the iran nuclear deal earlier this year the european union along with other nations that were signatories to the deal signed an agreement to facilitate legal transactions with iran in outspent was made by the blocs foreign policy chief after a meeting with iran's foreign minister e.u. member states will set up a legal entity to facilitate illegitimate financial transactions with iran and this will allow european companies to continue to trade with iran in accordance with european union low and could be open to other partners in the woods. when i think a look at some of the key milestones in the iran nuclear deal known formally as the joint comprehensive plan of action in two thousand and fifteen iran and six world powers signed the nuclear deal ending in the early twelve years standoff between iran and western powers to a spearheaded by the obama administration and saw the lifting of international
11:51 am
sanctions throughout his presidential campaign though dog trump strongly criticized the agreement as a bad deal for the u.s. and in may he pulled the u.s. out of the agreement and announced plans to reimpose financial sanctions on iran from november despite the u.s. withdrawal the european union and u.s. allies say iran continues to abide by the terms of the agreement the international nuclear watchdog the i.a.e.a. agrees and the e.u. has vowed to stick with the deal its updated legislation to protect european companies from future sanctions al-jazeera should have returned see joins us live from the u.n. headquarters in new york so they want to keep per the world trading with iran how exactly is the new mechanism supposed to work. ah the small print we haven't seen that yet all we have had there is a decision to move ahead with what they call the special purpose vehicle they've
11:52 am
been discussing this for a month or two now but now tonight what we had was that discussion that ok we're definitely going to do this the gist is and this is how it's been explained to us in the past say italy wants to buy some iranian oil it will contact this into meijer e entity it will wire the money to that entity which will then buy the oil which will then which will then handle the rest of the transaction with iran likewise if iran wants to buy european goods it will contact this entity which will then handle the transaction and why the money to the entity which will then handle the transaction their idea is this will keep things out of the international banking system no central banks will be involved no commercial banks will be involved both of which are terrified of the prospect of the u.s. cracking down on them if they go against the next round of sanctions at the begin in november so this is trying to trying to skirt the sanctions as you suggested by trying to skirt the financial system to an extent by using this intermediary entity
11:53 am
but we don't actually have many of the details as yet sorry. the big question of course will be how international business reacts to this what sort of signals are we getting so far. i mean not good from the e.u. or around noon or russian chinese perspective they are fleeing iran and there's a list of just came out the other day persia read a doctor telling us air france british airways the merced shipping company they have all been pulling out despite the pressure that the europeans certainly are trying to put on them saying look you know in fact we might even consider legislation if you will punish you if you pull out of of doing business with iran because this deal is so integra to our geopolitical stance and a big part of the j c p o a was iran the iranian involvement in the international economy to help the iranian economy but it doesn't agree having much much success because the us is such an integral part of that that european economy in the u.
11:54 am
and the europeans even though they've talked about of the past they haven't yet been able to come up with. replacing the dollar with the euro for example or thing else like that so that is a difficult a difficult sell for other companies because even if they go through this entity the u.s. will know who they are on us one assumes and they can the us will be able to sanction them so we have to see how that works it's interesting also the most of the e.u. did say they were going to have this entity open not just to e.u. e.u. companies but also companies around the world if they want to deal with iran or i should have a town say that thanks for that now a year ago the u.s. president called the north korean leader a little rocket man in his debut speech at the un general assembly one year round of trying to striking a much softer tone he said a second summit with kim jong un is likely soon raising hopes of reviving stalled nuclear talks trumps beneath the south korean president moon j.n. at the united nations mike hanna reports from the u.n.
11:55 am
. president trump arrives highlighting one major change in his position since derisively labeling north korea's leader a little rocket man a year ago. q you wrote a letter of a letter. asking for a second meeting we will be doing that secretary will work that out in the future looks like it will be very very well tremendous progress for north korea certainly since we got here it was a different world it was a very dangerous time this is a lot it's just one year later a much different tact. many periods president trump could prove best disruptive best the intense security measures imposed in midtown manhattan. but no signs of gridlock in the first public event he hosted opening a session on the global drug problem with a few surprise of the united nations and its secretary general we also thank the
11:56 am
secretary general for joining us and our special guest and as our special guest he's become a great friend and he's doing a wonderful job at a very very complex situation but a beautiful situation and i've always said the united nations has tremendous potential and that potential is being met slowly but surely it's being met little mention at the stage of u.s. action against united nations entities threats to dismantle the human rights council the suspension of funding to the relief and works agency. and the unilateral withdrawal from both the paris climate accord and the iranian nuclear agreement positions at all odds with what many of the leaders view as the problem philosophy of the united nations it should not rely only on the political interests of a few as an impasse between the major powers often impedes the entire organizations

ability to act. the united nations can only succeed to the degree that we as global leaders provide visionary leadership. that transcends our ideological differences and narrow national interests over the road from the united nations the stark black monolith called the trump international tower which like its owner will loom over the rest of the week's proceedings mike hanna al-jazeera united nations. the us is warning russia it's making a major mistake by deploying its state of the art missile defense system in syria the kremlin is sending the s. three hundred system to syria a week after one of its planes was mistakenly shot down by syrian anti-aircraft fire at the time syrian air defenses were responding to raids by israeli jets in the province of latakia rory challenge reports. russia's s.

military personnel a week ago there reconnaissance plane was misidentified and mistakenly shot down by syrian air defense admits the confusion of his radio. airstrikes and israeli military delegation sent to moscow last thursday failed to convince the russians it wasn't their fault. but interesting aspects of this rift is the way the ministry of defense approach differs from that taken by the kremlin the m.o.d.e. has kept pushing the view that israel is culpable but. his spokesperson has been soft pedaling saying it was just an unfortunate accident and that the s. three hundred decision is not that israel. israel has previously been able to count on russia turning a blind eye to its airstrikes inside syria of which there have been some two hundred in recent years but if damascus really does get its hands on s three hundreds the israeli military will have to rethink its tactics is the first time in
