3:49 am
welcome to the program my maryam namazie a with al jazeera live from london also coming up interim says the u.s. is sending another 1500 troops to the middle east amid heightened tensions with iran. iran remotely forges ahead with talks on forming a new cabinet after his dramatic winning india's election. and hundreds of same sex couples tie the knot in taiwan a week after it became the 1st asian country to legalize gay marriage. she's clung on for months despite losing 3 parliamentary votes on her breaks it down and suffering constant attacks from her own party but now in an emotional speech to resume a has announced that she will resign as leader of the u.k.'s ruling conservative
3:50 am
party on friday june 7th after president trumps state visit to the u.k. and leadership contest will then begin the following week with may staying on as prime minister until her replacement is chosen in late july the leader of the official breaks it campaign boris johnson is the favorite to win and what's expected to be a field dominated by breaks its supporters whoever replaces how will then have a till october 31st to deliver breaks that that's the deadline for britain to leave the european union sunday gago is outside parliament in westminster where she's been following the day's events and joins us now and we were just saying that the reason may have hung on for months there was an expectation that her time at downing street was drawing to a close what prompted her resignation now. well really it's a combination of 2 factors the fact that her deal the withdrawal agreement that should come up with the european union really was failing to garner any support and
3:51 am
a majority of votes to get it passed through parliament and that was really not going to change at all given the numbers and now and then at that point then it came to the fact that there was real on happiness with the way that to resume a was dealing with the situation and the fact that it wasn't just the withdrawal deal that was annoying or certainly sort of frustrating people here but also her approach to it as well she started off the week by promising a bold new offer on this to try and get people on side on both sides of the bridge those who are pro brecht's the tears and those who are against it or certainly against her version of the deal she failed on that count in fact entrenching or all that discontent against that when the leader of the house of commons resigned and then the set of tory backbenchers held a secret ballot which they threatened to use on her if she would not resign by friday paul brennan rings up today in his report on what led her to today's
3:52 am
situation. it is in the best interests of the country for a new prime minister to lead that effort to recent days resignation announcement speech began a little hesitantly and ended reluctantly but with her close staff and her husband philip standing by for support the prime minister conceded defeat it is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that i have not been able to deliver bricks it she will officially step down as party leader on june the 7th but remain as prime minister until her successor is chosen so in the end the emotional strain of recent months overcame her i will shortly leave the job that it has been the honor of my life to hold water. the 2nd female prime minister but certainly not the last. i do so with no ill will but with enormous and enduring
3:53 am
gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country i love the prime minister's resignation became inevitable after a hostile reaction to have final bricks at compromise offer even senior figures within her own party were demanding that she quit now that she has many of those same critics have now praised her dignity and determination i found it moving actually i think that we know the promises to the heart and soul is trying to do the best for this country at a difficult time facing a challenging climate in palm and many of those currently paying tribute are keen to succeed her in the top job more than a dozen conservative m.p.'s could contest the leadership with the new prime minister emerging by the end of july but parliament then takes a 6 week recess and some observers see the whole process as self-indulgent with the october 31st deadline approaching we're wasting the time that's been allotted to us we are wasting good will and the next prime minister will have no different arithmetic from theresa may the same problems in parliament getting the deal 3 by
3:54 am
the same promise in parliament if they try to get no deal the opposition labor party is demanding a general election has a new conservative leader isn't going to solve the problem. there has to be another opportunity for the people of this country to decide who that want government how they want the government to run what the long term structure is that government i think we did a general election in brussels reaction to the resignation was diplomatic presence younker followed prime minister mays and now instruments this morning without personal injury the president very much liked and appreciated working with prime minister may and as he has said before terrorism a woman of courage for whom she has great respect choosing to resubmit a successor is a 2 stage process with conservative m.p.'s 1st with lean down the candidates to a final 2 and then a postal ballots of the party's wider membership choosing the winner the early frontrunner is boris johnson who has massive support among the $125000.00
3:55 am
grassroots conservative members but he enjoys less support among parliamentary colleagues the party's internal divisions would once again generate international repercussions it was breakfast which marked the beginning and end of teresa mayes premiership rex it will certainly mark out her successor paul brennan al-jazeera. i'm picking up on that point about possible successors to terry's in may we know that a brutal leadership contest lies ahead doesn't it on what is always going to mean for bracks it. well that's the question that's really floating about everyone's minds here and not only just in the u.k. but also in the european union as well sensually it's going to be a case where the leading actors will be different but the scenario is still the same in there and that is facing the conundrum of trying to square that brics that circle ultimately what is going to make it extremely difficult is the fact that the
3:56 am
numbers in parliament have not changed there is still no majority to have no deal there is still not an outright majority either for any things resembling such as a people's vote a 2nd referendum a 2nd referendum if you will so there is still this element of of things being very much stop within parliament here and really there's little likelihood of anything changing drastically as far as that is concerned given the circumstances as well however you know with the possibility of perhaps a more probe rexx a tear prime minister in place that could perhaps change the dynamic a little bit but that would be perhaps. quite a interesting tactic to use with the european union now the european union have so far remained diplomatic obviously they've not rejoiced over the fact that to resume
3:57 am
a has resigned but they've been very adamant about stating that the withdrawal agreement that they've done with to resume a that's not going to change according to them they've been several voices echoing that as well they seem to be pretty united on that so really at this moment the only thing that we can really say is that to resume a's withdrawal deal and anything resembling doesn't it likely at all but perhaps what looks more likely would be the prospect of no deal or no breaks it thank you with the latest from westminster sunday gago. well the german chancellor angela merkel has been speaking out expressing a sense of respect for terri's in may and says that will continue to work closely with the u.k. to secure an orderly writes it. we respect this decision i've always had a good working relationship with prime minister to resign me the departure of the u.k. from the european union is a major transition and regardless of what happens in british politics the german
3:58 am
government will do everything to achieve a good partnership an orderly exits and good cooperation all tourism a's decision could further complicate the brics that process the withdrawal agreement has so far stalled in the british parliament and e.u. leaders a in the u.k. to give racket clarification so what happens now has more from paris. well the big question for european union leaders is what does to reserve may's resignation mean for briggs it we've heard from the french president a man will not call calling for rapid karf occasion spain's prime minister says that for him it looks as if a halt breaks it is the most likely outcome my limbs prime minister very concerned about what it would mean for ireland talking about entering into now a very dangerous period indeed britain was supposed to be leaving the european union this year it was 1st effect in march that was delayed they had a summit in april e.u. leaders and to reason they agreed on a new at the deadline all of the 31st but of course european leaders do not know
3:59 am
who they will now be dealing with who will replace to resume a will it be a hard line breaks it is so to speak anything that is certain is that the european commission spokesperson says that there will be no new renegotiation of the withdrawal agreement but there is no doubt that sense of frustration that has been there within the e.u. circles for many months now and years over the break that process is only getting worse. the u.s. president says america will send an additional $1500.00 troops to the middle east amid heightened tensions with iran donald trump says the deployment is mostly protective and will strengthen american defenses in the region on thursday the acting u.s. defense secretary said u.s. policy towards iran was about to terence war meanwhile u.s. senators say trump is clearing the sale of billions of dollars worth of weapons to

saudi arabia and the u.a.e. citing tensions with iran democratic senator robert menendez had used his powers to block sales of thousands of precision guided bombs fearing that they would lead to more civilian deaths in yemen but he says the driver ministration has told lawmakers it will bypass a legally required congress review and go ahead with the sale. joins us live now from the white house kimberly 1st of all what do we know about the deployment of these troops. yeah it's not the 120000 that we were hearing at one point or even the 5 or 10000 that we were hearing in the last couple of days but confirmed on the south lawn of the white house that he was planning and is sending 1500 troops and here's what it will look like in terms of what the administration has been continued to say is escalating threats from iran we know there will be a patriot battalion to defend against missile threats additional intel.
