crashes six minutes after takeoff. at least rather all one hundred fifty seven people on board were killed or heal mohammad reports. it's been almost a month since a boeing seven three seven took off from ethiopia's capital agnes ababa bound for nairobi it crashed six minutes later near the town of be sure to killing all one hundred fifty seven people on board it took his transport minister has now released the first official findings of the investigation into the crash which says the pilots did everything that was recommended by boeing that. this investigation needs to make sure that there is safety in that. it's not to blame someone it's not soon gets some sort of there are some things that we are going to do with . something very notable and forming the procedures but it's all. thinks the president of this report is going to have to ensure safety in that nation say. the
9:05 am
pilots reportedly struggle to control the plane's automatic anti stalling system which is meant to push the nose of the aircraft downwards if it detects a stall or loss of a speed analysts believe this issue may have led to the crash the crew reacted. quite correctly by carrying out a drill that has been pressed for bribes if this occurs and isolated this system which was trying to push the nose down but having done that they then found that one of the control systems that they have for pulling the nose back up again simply wouldn't perform for them this was the second crash to involve the boeing seven three seven max within five months in indonesia last october a lion f lights went down shortly after takeoff from jakarta killing all one hundred eighty nine passengers and crew the lawyers representing the families of

the victims of the line f. light say the united states should do more to hold boeing accountable no one needs a united states. is there to say it's no. small degree this is you know it's a war of those who work very equal justice for all victims the wires for the united states. and it's a major setback for the company boeing really has to work very fast to recover its trust because its brand name is so strong and its products for a long time have been so good the boeing seven three seven max has been grounded worldwide pending a review into the software of with flight control system investigators in ethiopia say a full report into what happened could take up to a year to complete for he mohammed al jazeera. and boeing continues to defend the
9:07 am
safety of the seven thirty seven max and acknowledge that and erroneous activation of the automation system may have forced the ethiopian in india indonesian jets to crash u.s. aviation regulator regulator the f.a.a. is reviewing the safety of the now grounded boeing seven thirty seven max eight and is facing a number of lawsuits john hendren has more from chicago. here in chicago the family of the victim of the ethiopian airlines crash last month is now suing boeing this is not just any victim however she is also the niece of ralph nader a one time presidential candidate and a consumer advocate who has taken on auto companies for flaws in their parts now this is the latest bit of bad news for boeing that comes after he v.o.b. in transportation officials found in their preliminary investigation that the pilots pursued all of the procedures that boeing had given them in order to correct the trajectory of that doomed plane and also they said they found no damage sensor
9:08 am
on that plane yet there was a damage sensor that might have suggested there was a make its problem and that could have been been blamed on the airline so this center of the focus of the investigation remains on the software system that was supposed to correct the trajectory of that plane the so-called anti stall system there was one fix that boeing had sold for that system as an option for eighty thousand dollars eighty thousand dollars on a one hundred twenty million dollar plane no that is found to have been something that might have been wrecked in this incident that could be a serious problem for boeing. syrian government forces have shelled rebel held areas in the south a bit late province killing at least fifteen people one missile hit a market in the town of kfar noble killing and wounding civilians at libya's the last remaining rebel held territory and syria is that designated a deescalation zone under an agreement a good. between russia and turkey saudi arabia said to be in talks with firms from

goals therefore we feel it compromises necessary to achieve this deal and avoid fighting the european elections we should go the extra step to secure this with the government also split on the way forward it fell to the chancellor to make clear to resume a would need to make concessions some kind of customs arrangement is clearly going to be a part of the future structure but look when you when you enter into a negotiation like this to find a compromise way forward both parties have to give something up there's going to be pain on both sides minimising islands pain was part of angular merkel's trip to dublin before the german chancellor's meeting with her counterpart leo veronica the pair heard directly from people from northern ireland and the border area no deal scenario could impact them we have to put their selves for all that comes. with that in my. and we discussed timing at european and domestic level for no deal thank you to how we can work together to meet our twin objectives of protecting the good friday agreement on which peace in our into space and also protecting the

9:18 am
and one of the perhaps common problems is also. the friend three factors across different countries and between a country there are some mississippi foods that are currently unfortunately nitpicked that you think of for example whole grains and these are not far off. in many countries actually for not eating meat case in many countries is very close to zero and you suggest that basically in addition to improving the consumption we need to basically work on interventions that. help the only. people i cross the fore. in the shock area these are the headlines right now on al-jazeera forces loyal to libya's u.n. backed government are being deployed in and around that the capital tripoli that's in response to an advance on the bans on the city by troops loyal to warlord

9:21 am
news to come in the meantime and sad story is that next. will saudi arabia go nuclear the kingdom is reported to have nearly finished building its first nuclear reactor the crown prince had said they will develop a nuclear weapon if iran does so what does that all mean for an already tense and volatile region this is insightful.
9:22 am
a lot of welcome to the program has him seek it if iran develops a nuclear bomb we will follow suit that was the warning from saudi crown prince mohammed bin sandman last year today the kingdom may be a few months away from completing its first nuclear reactor and some arms control experts all along these photos published by different media show the reactor site in the king abdul aziz city for science and technology on the outskirts of riyadh construction is apparently nearly done around a vessel believed to contain atomic fuel saudi arabia is yet to sign up to the international framework that seeks to ensure tomic programs are not used to build weapons and it hasn't adopted rules allowing inspectors to look at sites. saudi arabia has been open about its ambitions to have a nuclear plant that it says is for civilian purposes this is what the saudi energy ministry had to say in
9:23 am
a statement the facilities purpose is to engage in strictly peaceful scientific research educational and training activities in full compliance with international agreements the reactor is being built with transparency and the kingdom has signed all international nonproliferation treaties and this is what the saudi energy minister said in twenty seventeen when he was asked about the kingdom's plans to develop nuclear energy plants not only are we not interested anyway. doing nuclear technology to belittle you we are. very active. non related by others and we are extremely. biologists specially and that is german but even beyond that is the term developing . attention to nuclear weapons or thirty arabia's program has come under increased scrutiny since it was revealed to us six u.s.
9:24 am
energy secretary rick perry authorized american companies to share sensitive nuclear information with saudi arabia perry reportedly said in a document the firms had requested the deals be kept secret a u.s. congressional watchdog is investigating the white house's talks with riyadh on sharing nuclear technology the united states has been competing with south korea france russia and china to help build reactors in saudi arabia the kingdom is planning to build a least two reactors and is expected to announce the winner later this year. well let's bring in our pound now to talk more about this joining us from here in doha is it will again fry at associate professor of conflict resolution at the doha institute and from to iran saying stuff or session professor of journalism at the fars media faculty under the applied sciences university and from washington d.c.
9:25 am
mark fitzpatrick director of the nonproliferation program at the international institute for strategic studies good to have you all with us so it really let me start with you then what do you make of this development are the saudis. going to use nuclear u.s. nuclear energy info to get nuclear weapons of some of the. expressed fear about well we are still in a very early stage about this we are talking about the development of a nuclear reactor that's not yet completed. it is that it would need approximately when you have to be completed we are not talking about the major elements of such a nuclear capacity which is basically in the richmond of your any m or the reprocessing of the plutonium and the third element which is the signing
9:26 am
of the nonproliferation treaty you. signed in one thousand it is so it's committed to this one perforation according to the treaty so with all of this is going to change the balance of power or this is going to pose a threat to iran or to israel i don't think so i think we are still in a very very early stages. needs a lot more than that in order to talk about this in nuclear capacity being a factor in the regional equation probably the only benefit that saudi arabia is benefiting from this new. now is in terms of training over human resources to say interests if this is the key is that they are receiving the training from the saudis from the american companies that are involved in this but other than that i think we are still for now looking at it in my view in terms of an attempt to
9:27 am
have a nuclear capacity a peaceful capacity but we are still very far away from translating this into influence politics and the balance of power in that he. mostafa profession what implications in. saudi arabia having a nuclear plant going to have for iran and particularly when so much of the focus in this region was on iran's nuclear ambitions and it was part of the reason of course that we had that international nuclear deal that was made with iran well how are they reacting to this you know of the war in states are you not entitled to develop to die you versified there you know energy programs and resources. that includes also of the nuclear energy if you are a member of the i.a.e.a.
9:28 am
then you are entitled to develop a civilian nuclear technology but the point here is that the saudis are no member of the i.a.e.a. they are not open to international monitoring and inspection they are they have signed the small quantities agreement that doesn't open their facilities to international monitoring and inspection on the opposite side iran has been a member if you know of the i.a.e.a. everyone knows about it's been in full compliance with the m p three rules and regulations it has signed the nuclear deal that some believe that. somehow unique regime of inspections to iran more than any of this state iran has been on their international monetary and and inspection even before the nuclear deal now after the nuclear deal was abrogated by the united states and the e.u. is adamant to complying with its terms iran has been a trustworthy partner in full compliance with the deal according to over those an
9:29 am
i.a.e.a. report and that shows iran is a very sober and responsible actor and it is on their you know international inspections seven twenty four. what matters here is that the saudis not only they are not members of the i.a.e.a. and not open to international monitoring and inspection they have proved to be an irresponsible actor in the middle east take a look at what they've done in the last couple of years you will come up with so many stories like incarceration of the lebanese prime minister the prime minister of a sovereign state then to the brutal killing of jamal. qatar you know threatening to iran with opening war and taken the war to tehran streets that white by the way happened the cup a month later with a terrorist attack on the iranian parliament so they are in a very adventurous state they are source of instability in the region in the
9:30 am
words of former u.s. vice president joe biden he actually blamed solve the arabia as well as to other u.s. allies in the region for the start a war of militancy and the havoc in the middle east in syria and iraq so when we you have a state that is irresponsible that's by the way at best at this part a grueling and treating you know of the population in solve the arabia with force and with tribal rule and state that you know are adamant to stability in regional security that this would be a complete insanity to provide the solo these with such sensitive technology outside international monitoring and inspection and that's why i believe that the u.s. congress is also very much serious about this. the situation grows grave when you
9:31 am
come to notice that in the words of some. u.s. congress people the state that the trump administration has been adamant to impose a ban on the delivery. of nuclear enrichment and plutonium reprocessing technology to solve the arabia meaning that if there is a good deal they would provide the solo these with such sensitive technology when the us my final sentence is that when the us abrogates the deal with iran with so many other words they standing in opposition to such a move by the us. claiming some nonproliferation concerns and at the same time they go for a deal with the saw with these and they are adamant to place and get ban and you rein him in richmond and plutonium reprocessing let's get knology and they provide them with this technology that shows full hypocrisy that shows that the us feels no
9:32 am
nonproliferation for middle east and for middle east security and stability mark mark fitzpatrick given all of that everything you've just heard there from stuff and i want to ask you as well about the concerns that have been expressed in washington about this by politicians from both parties not just the opposition democrats but a number of probably a prominent republicans. about the whole idea of the u.s. sharing sensitive nuclear information with saudi arabia given much of of what stuff has has said there are they right to be concerned other reasons to be concerned but there are there's a lot of exaggeration let me clarify a couple of things number one saudi arabia is a member of the i.a.e.a. saudi arabia today is in compliance with its obligations to the i.a.e.a.
9:33 am
but the point made by your guest in tehran is that saudi arabia has not agreed to full or inspections which it has been asked to and before the research reactor that is being built comes online it. i'll have to join the general safeguards agreements that all other states have so that will happen with regard to the u.s. nuclear cooperation agreement united states is not going to provide enrichment uranium enrichment or plutonium reprocessing technology they're not going to do that the the issue is will united states require saudi arabia to for goal getting these technologies from any other country in exchange for u.s. nuclear cooperation the way that the united states required the united arab emirates to do and that's the issue the saudis don't want to give up rich meant and u.s. administration seems to be weakening on this and ready to strike a deal without that requirement but as you've noted members of congress are
9:34 am
concerned five republican senators said they don't want to engage and a nuclear cooperation agreement with saudi arabia i think they would agree to it if it had a strict gold standard requirement that saudi arabia could not pursue and richmond and reprocessing and without enrichment or reprocessing you can't get nuclear weapons so the nuclear technology the united states would share with saudi arabia is not sensitive in that regard but there are many reasons to be concerned and i think your other guests have have so if if if let's say the saudis don't agree to this so-called gold standard to which is you know as you say no no enrichment of uranium no reprocessing of plutonium and accepting regular intrusive international inspections should the u.s. just walk away then i think the united states should negotiate very strictly with the saudis and get them to accept such
9:35 am
a standard should they walk away the difficulty is if the united states walks away the saudis could strike a deal with russia or china and there wouldn't be much. requirements at all so that's what the united states is grappling with right. i think the united states has a lot of leverage with saudi arabia their strategic partners but but most of the relationship is in the advantage of the united states and the saudis need the united states more than vice versa if i let's put it that point then to abraham then you know mark fitzpatrick makes that point as. members of the trumpet ministration have also said that you know if they do if they don't do business with us they'll go elsewhere like russia and china and they've said that those countries. will not be as diligent about the whole issue of nuclear proliferation and nuclear weapons and so on what would he say to that well let's put the sisterhood first of all i don't think the united states would ever give the united saudi arabia your rhenium and
9:36 am
richmond or plutonium reprocessing this is a technology that presents a serious risk for saudi arabia and positioning in the region and in particular for israel the reason actually we haven't seen any is laid opposition to this is that that this does not present any threat that so that some think the administration along with israel there on the same page and i don't think what we are seeing now is more than just be making more technology sales of technology but for the trump administration selling tool to saudi arabia so it does not have any political implications in my view. that somebody at the u.s. administration does not the trust that saudi arabia would deal with this technology the way it should in order that again not to present
9:37 am
a threat to israel and this is the key point to this a broad church mend a congressman who commented who told you that if you don't trust saudi to deal with a band saw then how are you going to trust them with a nuclear technology. so this is something that's given in all of this now what is actually concerning about the whole idea the whole thing is about why this is being done in the in the very secretive way is that jed course not is managing the whole thing along with the other officials in the u.s. administration there are some american companies that are seriously pushing for this sales to pick up the same time measuring it's kept they're keeping it secret because it's a can the documents contain proprietary business information in other words yes knowledge that the companies involved don't want their competitors to get hold of
9:38 am
so they're dazed valid business reasons not necessarily has because there are reports already that link some u.s. officials like michael flem the former of national security adviser to some of these companies that are pushing seriously for these sales like the internationals that that's one of the films that is seriously and significantly pushing for so why this is being done in the most secretive way. is passing by the congress is not going through the congress and actually. the secretary of energy to carry the point be you they are not answering the questions that the congress is asking so there is something here is not very clear about and it's not very transparent if we're talking about. some legitimate business that has been done in terms of technology and that it's going through the u.s.
9:39 am
of a session that can simply be done in the most the transparent way which is not the case and again the fact that israel is not saying anything about this and the whole. the whole idea of the regional fact that he had because we have to think that he. in the context into consideration because you know the some administration has been moving the embassy the american embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem giving the golan heights as if he owns it. and now he has won one of the thing that's coming up without really being transparent which makes me concerned about how is this be and let's let's put it back to marc then mark fitzpatrick there's been a level of secrecy surrounding these approvals is that only going to add to congress's suspicion of the the administration's intentions and of saudi arabia's intentions. oh i absolutely so these approvals as you noted this is this is for technology it's marketing technology so that the firms in question can engage in
9:40 am
preliminary discussions with the saudis it's not technology that they could use for any nefarious purpose at all but you pointed to the issue here your other guest in . why the trump administration didn't tell the congress that they were they were approving these these initial technology sharing and and that has got the congress aroused because they're already very concerned for all the reasons that your guests have noted and and the men in particular the fact that the saudis have been this nuclear hedging strategy that if iran gets a nuclear weapon they want one too and the united states absolutely can't be a party to to permitting any further expansion of nuclear weapons technology in the region so yes the trump administration secrecy here involves as your father of the professor noted jared kushner making having conversations that aren't reported to anyone in the congress needs to know what's going on yet mostafaei you
9:41 am
pointed out earlier what you felt a lot of the hypocrisy in all of this as far as iran is concerned but what about the concerns that people in iran might have particularly the hardliners there in the leadership about the security implications of this that if they see that. saudi arabia is moving further in the direction of nuclear power that that that could perhaps lead to them trying to acquire nuclear weapons what it what is that going to do for their concerns in the region about security and about the fact that they have been they say complying with all of that the international requirements of pursuing peaceful nuclear power with that agreement while a question actually but before that i need to raise a couple of points i do agree with my colleagues in the hall or that there are. much secrecy surrounding this case that he explained and at the same time
9:42 am
there have been congregational reports accusing donald trump ministration of efforts to bypass the congress and this deal and also about these realize i do agree with them saying that despite the fact that they are good bedfellows right now i mean the saudis in these release these release are not so not even they may not go for this strategic blunder to allow a delivery of nuclear enrichment or plutonium reprocessing to happen i mean to solve these by the u.s. at ministration but when you have done office nothing rational you know nothing might go rational there are things that might happen if there is a good deal and a good bargain in place anyway and that that's why there are worries not just in iran but in the entire region that the saudis you know that's true i agree
9:43 am
with mark fitzpatrick the u.s. wants to be in control in through this deal in order and up not to push the saudis towards the cheney's in the russians but a study of the situation in sol the arabia shows that they could go both the way they could have a deal with the united states and at the same time they could go the rest of this way with the chaney's with pakistan especially or with anyone else remember did solve these are in position of the good number of cygnus sides are there for a q. or two from a number of countries including the chinese there with a range of four to five thousand kilometers that's double the range of iranian missiles and still there are reports coming from the washington post and from other u.s. media outlets saying that the saudis have started. helping a homegrown ballasts taking a side technology that's a suspicious move that could be a move to tours developing
9:44 am
