12:54 pm
bring down the government in cuba by making it financially difficult for caracas to supply havana with eight and that remains the ultimate goal the white house is transparent it seeks the overthrow of the cuban venezuelan ambika rog when governments and u.s. control over the world's largest oil reserves it will make a big difference to the united states economically if we could have american oil companies really invest in and produce the oil capabilities in venezuela with the election of right wing governments in the region and the emergence of one guy do it was decided the time and come for regime change one why does popular well party has a strange itself from even large sectors of venezuela's opposition that favor dialogue and don't want war however he has a strong constituency in washington it was washed. after all that groomed him for this moment but there are concerns in washington that the administration has mistaken opposition to president for support for u.s.
12:55 pm
intervention or for candidates asking for military intervention and there are fears about what such a hardline foreign policy team will recommend if it has miscalculated a team that now includes elliott abrams who in the one nine hundred eighty s. oversaw the us his support for regimes that employed death squads in central america. now the u.s. has been drawing from a decade's old nuclear missile pact with russia sparking fears of a new arms race the trumpet ministration has accused of violating the intermediate range nuclear forces all the treaty russia rejects those accusations complete. from washington d.c. . suspension of the historic treaty that has been a cornerstone of european security for decades for years russia has violated the terms of the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty without remorse the united
12:56 pm
states will therefore suspend its obligations under the n f treaty effective february second. the white house maintains the u.s. has appeared to the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty well russia has not in that time it accuses russia of covertly developing and fielding a prohibited missile system that poses a threat to european allies u.s. forces stationed there the u.s. did not give specific examples of violations russia has consistently denied it's breaking the agreement but u.s. secretary of state says that freshness and violation what's your response when not and we've brought this many times but they don't want to listen the agreement was signed during the cold war by u.s. president ronald reagan and russia's mikhail gorbachev one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. but most agree it's not perfect it did hold to the escalating arms race between the two superpowers u.s. president donald trump has long been
12:57 pm
a critic of the treaty. and friday he suggested it might be time to negotiate a new one less thing to do and here we should be the only one i hope that we're able to get everybody in a very big and beautiful room and do what new treaty that would be much better still there's concern the u.s. did not exhaust its diplomatic options and is trump pressures north korea to give up its nuclear arsenal many question why he would relax any missile restrictions on russia it actually opens the door for russia to deploy more of these missiles and opens the door for a new european missile race some analysts have speculated the trumpet ministration isn't just worried about russia. china is not bound by the treaty there's criticism it's been gaining military advantage deploying large numbers of missiles with ranges beyond the current limits there are now just six months for the
12:58 pm
agreement to be saved the united states is russian must destroy equipment in violation of the agreement or will move ahead with a response designed to deny what the united states perceives to be russia's military advantage can really help at al-jazeera the white house. worked for the u.s. state department on curbing weapons of mass destruction globally she says the trunk administration had other options to tie up the deal. i think there is a concern about russia's missiles there's been television that indicates that the missiles do in fact have a range just beyond what's allowed under the i.n.f. treaty and that there's a chance they have actual plane done some testing with them so there is a concern are valid concern about what russia is doing however there are some diplomatic efforts that you know they could have done more to actually try to resolve the issue on the other hand you know it is another case obviously the u.s.
12:59 pm
withdrawal from retreat that really is very very important in terms of what it's been able to do and what it can prevent in terms of our control so it can also deftly be seen as another case where the u.s. sees an agreement that it doesn't like and rather taking the time to really exhaust diplomatic efforts it decides withdraw. the taliban says u.s. president trump appears to be serious about pulling its troops out of afghanistan a spokesman for the armed groups say foreign withdrawal is the first goal towards resolving the seventeen year conflict the taliban also says it wants to establish an islamic system and any peace deal earlier this week the u.s. envoys that there have been agreements in principle towards a framework agreement but it was drawn up without input from the afghan government which the taliban regards as illegitimate david certainly is a former u.s. deputy assistant secretary for defense for kind of some of pakistan he says the taliban these are kind specifically what it means by an islamic system. well if you
1:00 pm
look at the afghan constitution it says that afghanistan respects shari'a law and is governing accord to this law mick principles so it really depends on what you mean by in this law mick system. in afghanistan in kabul where i've lived for a fair part of the last several years there is an islamic system so the question is will the taleban accept what the rest of afghanistan regards as an acceptable islamic system are did they want something else something that is more a traditional pashtun system with a huge amount of oppression of woman are they going to accept the presence of shia and has are a minority which when they were in power before they discriminated against so we have to look at what they mean when they say islamic system a true islamic system would be fine but if it's one that is really just a pashtun tribal system that's another question full ivory coast present lot of bank that has been released by the.
