7:51 pm
viewpoint now saudi arabia that thirty second clip that you just heard that was the only mention of your mouth shut by the saudis the whole rest of the forty five minutes address was to tell you tell the world tell the assembled delegates how much progress they were making how vision twenty thirty the crown prince's vision was all part you know promoting human rights how they were empowering women how they were giving women driving licenses how they were reforming the kingdom of saudi arabia the questioning that has followed that has gone on partisan lines to a certain extent. there's been a huge amount of criticism of saudi arabia for things like the death penalty for the guardianship issue and the jamal khashoggi questions persist let's hear now from the australian ambassador sally dempsey. astray or deploys the killing of jamal khashoggi reports that the killing was premeditated a deeply alarming astray recommend saudi arabia fully cooperate with investigations

prevent the freedom of assembly and there is no law actually protecting the rights to freedom of assembly in saudi arabia all of those issues have been mentioned by the various delegations here i'll give you just a flavor of what the un united states has said we are deeply disturbed and saddened by the preliminary results of saudi arabia's investigation at the jamal khashoggi was killed on the premises of saudi consulates it's absolutely necessary that saudi arabia conduct fair a conclusive transparent investigations justice must be carried out so jamal khashoggi is one of the big issues but it's the whole entirety of saudi arabian human rights record that's under the spotlight here thank you for that paul brennan in geneva for us. meanwhile turkey's sabah newspaper is reporting that members of a saudi team sent to istanbul to investigate jamal khashoggi is killing focus instead on removing evidence the publication is reporting that among the saudi team that arrives nine days after the murder were experts on chemicals and toxicology
7:54 pm
they were reportedly given the job of getting rid of evidence a senior turkish official has confirmed the report to the reuters news agency saying two members of the team travelled to turkey with the sole purpose of covering up the crime and are simmons has the latest survey sample. will forte or the turkish vice president was outlining really the thinking in turkey behind this whole investigation of where it's at right now he said this he said who gave the order to commit this murder on our soil we are searching for this he alluded to the fact that they were pushing to get to the very heart of the issue of where the orders came from and this is echoing really what the turkish president has said a few days back when he asserted that that would go to the very top it wouldn't involve king solomon he didn't actually in actual fact use the name of the crown
7:55 pm
prince mohammed bin soundman but there was a clear implication that he was a major suspect now what was also said was a reference to a report that. body could have been a doused in acid to try to dispose of the remains the assertion is that there had been a cutting of the body at the consulate here before it was transported in vans with three main players in the hit team to the consulate where apparently we're now hearing in a separate leak from the given to these sabha pro-government newspaper that there were two key figures in the search team which arrived in istanbul on the eleventh of october and that's nine days after the murder of these two men one was a toxicologist according to the sabah newspaper the other was
7:56 pm
a chemical expert and now these two men were part of the search team the official search team but they were according to the newspaper and their leak they were involved in a coverup. the toughest sanctions today sas what the u.s. is calling the latest measures against iran is targeting the country's oil and financial sectors but iran's president hassan rouhani says it will be business as usual for tehran the trump administration is very imposing sanctions that were originally lifted as part of the twenty fifty nuclear agreement the move as we mentioned will hit hundreds of businesses including those from countries linked with iran zain does ravi is in tehran with more on how iran has reacted to the brain imposition of u.s. sanctions. well if if you listen to officials you know the first bit of official reaction we got this morning was from president hassan rouhani himself speaking to his economic team which is recently been shaken up the minister of the economic
7:57 pm
minister the federal minister was replaced president hassan rouhani has gone out of his way to illustrate to his people that he's taking the economic chaos in the country seriously in addressing his relatively new team he put out his sort of forward thinking iran's policy going forward and that would be to continue to sell oil and to break these u.s. sanctions he also said that no white house ever in his estimation has been as opposed to fulfilling its international obligations and its international commitments and he said that no white house has been as racist as this one is taking a shot at his american counterpart president donald trump so very very defiant words coming from president hassan rouhani now we have to say that while the civilian government was doing what they were doing there were large scale military exercises going on as well one of the things that the american government that this white house pointed to was the reason behind pulling out of the nuclear deal in re
7:58 pm
imposing sanctions was iran's ballistic missiles program that iran says is for defensive purposes as well as a runs growing military influence in the middle east and so it did not feel like a coincidence that iran scheduled one of its largest aerial military. sizes on the same day that sanctions were kicked back in these exercises involve multiple aerial defense units from iran's regular military as well as the iranian revolutionary guard corps and span half a million kilometers across the country so no doubt a message to the united states iranians we spoke to say that they've learned in their time of dealing with the u.s. government that the only language they understand is the language of strength and so it's probably no coincidence that these exercises were scheduled to go out in the same day as this deadline civil rights groups fear millions of americans are being denied their right to vote in the midterm elections they say states under republican control are unfairly purging voter rolls affecting minorities the trend
