1:01 am
grow of more violence against muslims. we begin the program in sudan where protest leaders are demanding an independent investigation into violence that claimed the lives of at least 4 people activists sort of reinforcing barricades on the streets of the capital car to spot a warning from the military not to do so 3 demonstrators and an army major were killed in gunfire on monday night outside military headquarters but that have gathered there for weeks calling for a transition to civilian rule the military is the 9 claims the security forces used live fire and are blaming what they call infiltrators for the deaths were. done in syria we want the army to show us evidence that they weren't responsible because the injured people see that those who shot at them were in uniform and were driving armored vehicles they didn't. these allegations so the blame goes straight to the
1:02 am
military council the military council has to do an investigation and tell us what happened we cannot accept their explanation that they were outsiders sowing discontent. a protest leaders say that while discussions will continue they want answers for the violence to kill demonstrators on monday. hit morgan reports now from khartoum. the military council is saying that it has nothing to do with what happened on monday evening and that they they have been infiltrators among the protesters themselves so to set up an independent committee to investigate what happened last night is going to be a little bit tricky the members of the coalition of the opposition coalition are saying that witnesses on the ground have said that the people who shot at them while wearing military uniforms were mounted on military vehicles so they're largely playing the responsibility on the military council and it doesn't look like the military council would want anyone or anybody investigating them at the moment
1:03 am
as they are trying to form a transitional government with the opposition coalition so chances of some kind of accountability being delivered to those who were killed and those who were injured and the protesters who have been in front of the army headquarters for the past 2 weeks looks unlikely at the moment but if a transitional government is formed then there might be more probability and more chance of that happening but protesters are calling for and 2 were to talks between the 2 sides they're saying that at the moment all they are seeing when that when they look at the military council is images and remnants of the former regime so they're saying that the old former regime is very much still intact and still in place the opposition coalition and the military council are in talks to try to iron out their differences between in terms of forming a transitional government we've already heard from the 2 sides that they have they have agreed on the structure of that transitional government but there are going to talk today and there are currently talking today on how long the transitional period should last and how much for presentation each side should get now that last
1:04 am
point has been a point of contention since the military council took over it wants to be the one chairing the transitional period but the opposition coalition is saying that they want the civilian who is independent not affiliated to any party or military to be the one chairing the transitional period. russia's president has told the u.s. secretary of state that he senses president trump wants to repair relations between washington and moscow let it be putin has been holding talks with like pump a 0 in sochi earlier peo met his russian counterpart sergey lavrov and said that the u.s. doesn't want war with iran step fasten is in sochi for us. very rare but very important meetings here in sochi between my compare and the russian foreign minister and after that with vladimir putin basically the leaders now want to improve the relationship which has been very bad between the united states and russia and one of the reasons that they can do this is because the report has basically officially cleared the collision allegations that were made between the
1:05 am
campaign and the russian authorities put inside that that was an objective investigation and basically now it sort of clears the way to have an order changing situation between the 2 nations as he described it but then there's of course all these differences that the 2 superpowers still have they have different opinions on iran on afghanistan on syria and also on venezuela on iran had hoped the russian foreign minister that you could give him more guarantees on too profound a military operation in the gov region which couldn't get the united states want russia to stop supporting nicolas maduro in venezuela that also something that last laugh of couldn't guarantee but then there were some baby steps some small progress on other issues like north korea where both nations the united states and russia
1:06 am
support a dialogue with north korea also afghanistan there was some progress and most importantly on the arms race the arms control after the important intermediate nuclear forces treaty collapsed earlier this year there's only one significant nuclear treaty in place which is the new start treaty that will expire in 2021 well both nations now seem to agree to continue dialogue on having an extension or a possible different agreement on nuclear forces because they. despite differences the 2 still need to get along to have a better situation in the world. the united states military is investigating an alleged attack for oil tankers off the coast of the united arab emirates this comes as iran's foreign minister said his country had anticipated event that would escalate tensions in the gulf region 4 ships were damaged on sunday in what i mean

called an act of sabotage. reports from tehran. in the immediate aftermath of a legit sabotage attacks on oil vessels at the fujairah port in the united arab emirates like other countries in the region iran was quick to condemn the incident demand an investigation and offer support on tuesday a carefully worded statement gave way to pointing fingers during talks in india iran's foreign minister left little room for doubt about who to consider is responsible. we discussed regional issues and the policies of extremists inside the u.s. administration region who are trying to impose their policies we also discussed concerns we have about suspicious. that are happening in the region that we had earlier predicted that they would carry out such measures. in the region. zarif
1:08 am
comments followed a report attributed to an unnamed member of an american military team sent to investigate the alleged explosions in. the initial u.s. assessment seems to say iran had a hand in the incident but no senior u.s. officials immediately backed up the report senior iranian parliamentarian say there still isn't enough information about what happened. what happened at the pole to project is still vague unclear but it seems there are some in the region that want to drag trump into a war and we're dealing with the issue with a strong mind towards our historic responsibilities i think the talk about explosions in particular is just a hasty scenario and it suffers many shortcomings whoever stands behind this is pushing for a failed plan after a closed session of parliament on tuesday morning another senior m.p. said israel may also be behind the alleged attack as a sort of false flag operation to turn up the heat on iran. neither side has
1:09 am
offered any evidence of their claims and this is all happening as iran and the united states exchange strong words but prepare for a fight. earlier this month president hassan rouhani announced iran's plans to roll back cooperation of the 2050 nuclear deal as well as look at restarting enrichment activity at various nuclear sites his move came after the latest round of u.s. sanctions that targeted iranian nuclear activity allowed as part of the nuclear agreement itself to her own continues to call out to regional capitals to say that the united states is an outsider and that it is up to the countries in the middle east to maintain their own security and stability together while iran's neighbors seem reluctant to have more conflict in the region the power forward is still here and tensions are still specially with more american military presence in the region same with rob you know just 0 from.

1:11 am
a drone that has the capability of flying about $100.00 kilometers of range to fly to about $200.00 kilometers as well but the iranians have built this drone specifically for who the rebels to use not necessarily for surveillance but specifically for weaponization and that's in my opinion what's happened here is that they've asked them to step up their attacks specifically on saudi's energy infrastructure the united nations says the who the withdrawal from 3 major ports in yemen is being carried out partly as agreed the redeployment to find has began on saturday as part of a un brokered deal the current withdrawal in one day that is part of what's known as phase one of ongoing peace efforts to end the 4 year civil war u.n. brokered talks are currently taking place in jordan between who the rebels and rival government parties are. now donald trump insists that economic talks with china have not collapsed calling the trade war between the world's 2 largest economies a quote little squabble the u.s. president says a trade agreement is still possible only for china wants to strike
