12:00 am
you're absolutely right in a way it would be actually advisable for the demonstrators just to pocket this victory and to celebrate rather remarkable achievement. but in a way we have to understand that this was a very hard fought victory and there are now considerable grievance that have. come up in this process think of the violence on wednesday and the one of the big questions is whether demonstrators will be pacified by let's say this rather unconvincing statement that carolyn has made she has agreed to shelve the law but she didn't show any remorse for the violence and also the victims of the police brutality and that's clearly a problem i wonder if there's a bit of a now or never mentality amongst the protesters you know they've managed to do this
12:01 am
against the odds so you know strike while the iron's hot and keep pushing for more reform keep pushing for more change while they sense maybe there's a bit of way yes. certainly i think what has happened over the past decade or so is that the transplant body has really played a long game they knew that they couldn't change the system overnight so they have engaged in what would have what i would call like selective decolonization so they changed the education system tried to push back the mostly christian groups that were running the curriculum they've also crippled in a way the legislative council which is the parliament of hong kong but. perhaps the unintended consequence of this process of decolonization is that the public institutions really don't work anymore and they don't produce leadership and so for example very lamb she used to be a civil servant she was selected by the pro beijing establishment so she was never
12:02 am
stress tested in an election she never had to argue her case and that leads to these kind of big errors in judgment that have these rather drastic consequences yeah i'm glad you mentioned china or beijing as it were because of thinking there's so much focus on kerry land so much focus on the leadership in hong kong how closely do we need to watch actually beijing in here and how it might react going forward. ok we're clearly dealing with the black box phenomena phenomenon but you know we have to actually look at one other player in this saga which is taiwan and it's quite ironic in a way that kerry has actually helped for example the. president saying when to win a primary against challenger. and say win one that primary on the back of her support for the hong kong demonstrators saw in that sense beijing also
12:03 am
always has to keep in mind that whatever happens in hong kong has a knock on effect on taiwan and taiwan politics and of course in general next year how these will elect their president and in that sense. has achieved an enormous feat yes actually unified hong kong society against her government and she has helped the incumbent president saying win in taiwan to become. a. contender for the next presidential election so that's quite an achievement i would say it was felt a pleasure talking to you thank you for joining us. plenty more coming up for you on this news are competing for the conflicting words of life getting farmers and nomads in nigeria against each other also hidden away the migrants being kept by the u.s.
12:04 am
government in what's been called a concentration camp and sport india's cricket is get ready for a world cup game against their fiercest sporting rivals. iran's president has reiterated his country will continue to pull back from the nuclear deal unless other countries protect it from american sanctions on ronny was speaking at a summit in tajikistan and smith has a report from the capital to shop there. iran's president has used a conference in tajikistan of leaders and diplomats from more than 30 countries to reinforce an ultimatum he made in may that's when hassan rouhani said tehran will start enriching uranium at a higher level unless world powers to protect its economy from u.s. sanctions within 60 days that would be a breach of iran's commitments to the nuclear deal known as the j.c. p.o.
12:05 am
a agreed with those powers. it's obvious that iran cannot unilaterally remain committed to the joint comprehensive plan of action and it's necessary that other countries contribution to the survival of this important agreement with our good will and strategic tolerance on one hand and the united states lawlessness on the other hand it's been proven to everyone republic of iran all announcing its readiness for any interaction has decided to reduce its obligations under paragraph $26.36 of the plan of action to restore balance the 2050 nuclear agreement restricts iran's ability to enrich uranium in return for relief from a u.s. led sanctions it was signed by the u.s. and the u.k. germany france china russia and the e.u. but the trump administration unilaterally withdrew from the deal last year a decision russian president vladimir putin said in tajikistan he didn't agree with
12:06 am
you. well games should be used in the us when we believe that the only sensible decision is for all deal participants to on a commitments as a russia is ready to do and for katter's emir to men been hammered all funny there was a chance for his 1st meeting with the iranian president with an ongoing 2 year blockade by egypt bahrain the u.a.e. and saudi arabia catarrh is increasingly reliant on access to iranian airspace and trade routes while iran is looking for regional support there's been no mention here of the attacks on the 2 tankers in the gulf on thursday the us blames iran for that iran says it's played no role both countries accuse each other of destabilizing the middle east and now there's just 2 weeks to go before iran's ultimatum for sanctions relief expires burnitz with al-jazeera. now one of the tankers damaged in thursday's explosion is due to arrive in the united arab emirates later on saturday mohamed viles monitoring events for us from the
12:07 am
omani capital muscat and you bring us up to date mohammed. yes the. one of the 2 attackers as you just mentioned is being told to the to the to the poor to a part of the by the united arab emirates for maintenance and also for war investigation we also know that to american naval team has been sent on board the courageous to collect more evidence after the 2 attacks on those ships for yesterday the americans have shown that video to the world saying that the iranians have removed one of the unexploded mines from the home of one of those tankers and for the americans that's in evidence the iranians have been behind the attack so bits and pieces of evidence or bits of pieces of investigation being conducted here and there. japanese owner of one of the ships said that they are also conducting their
12:08 am
own investigation and they have so far realized that no malfunction has been behind the explosion in that tank or the mission the united arab emirates has come on board or saw it with regards to these investigations or claims of finding evidence and the foreign minister of the united arab emirates said that his country has submitted its own piece of evidence to the security council in a very clear way and he has a film that the incident was space was a state sponsor he did not mention the name of a particular state but the understanding is that he is a defendant to iran because the united arab emirates and saudi arabia just 2 days ago and very quickly after the incidents have joined the united states and the united kingdom in accusing iran of being behind those a tux. yes so anything further than mohamed if we do i mean you've told us a lot about the investigation about what's happening the actual regional politics
12:09 am
the next steps that might happen there because i mean you've got an increased u.s. presence in the in the region as well as all the other regional players to think about. that's right we have seen the americans increasing their military presence they have already even before this incident mobilized the aircraft carrier abraham lincoln go to the region or so 2 days ago they talked about mobilizing a destroyer bainbridge going to the state of hormuz they have already sent a lot so troops to the region and they have nuclear capable 52 bombers being sent as well all of that is happening at the same time when president trump is pointing the finger directly to iran he said iran didn't do it and he said iran cannot deny that and the americans are going to make sure that iran cannot continue to decide what the movement of oil supplies across the strait of hormuz so that's that war rhetoric is be nice but at the same time we see the americans also saying that they
12:10 am
are ready for negotiations with doubletalk on the american side is also reflected or you know are so to buy the iranians they are saying they are ready to negotiate but they are they are sort of the for war on both sides it's the same equation they want to show that they are ready to fight and to defend themselves and their interests and on the other hand they are saying that they want to peace if the other side wants to come to the negotiation table mohamed vul is in muscat plank you mohamad and in london is known bashar a senior political analyst known on start with iran you know 24 hours ago you and i were talking and you were outlining the iranian position about the nuclear deal compared with what the u.s. was saying what we seem to see today is the iranian president calling out to other nations and you've got to help us out here otherwise we're pulling back from the steel even further and then they'll be nothing. absolutely and i think his
12:11 am
reference to paragraph 26 of the nuclear deal is rather important i didn't exactly study that deal i'm no legal scholar you know by any stretch of imagination but when you look at the ticket 26 it is rather poorly written but it does state that the united states government will in good faith let tried to lift all sanctions relevant to the nuclear program and on the other hand iran stated that if any of those sanctions are re-imposed or new sanctions are introduced then iran will use that as a ground to pull out and do what it you know wants to do win with a nuclear deal so it was always clear from by that $26.00 and from the entire logic of the deal that this was sanctions for nuclear you would lift the sanctions would stop with the nuclear now that the united states has walked out walked away from
12:12 am
the nuclear the clearly iran is insisting that it has also rights now does it really want to go out and tell the world and does it really want to violate that deal no for the time being it's still insists that would perhaps with the help of the europeans and in the case of today and yesterday with the help of russia and china it could bypass the american sanctions and perhaps still exported oil and normalize its economy without resorting to exceptional measures whether the answers are positive from beijing and moscow be yond simply cliches and and and statements remains to be seen can you folks you mentioned russia and china can you focus in on china a little bit more for me please because i think we focus more on russia as someone who can help will lean on iran to help the situation there china's influence is
12:13 am
a equally important surely. you know. china probably would have wanted any of this to happen maybe a decade from now because china said preparing the way for it to emerge as the you know one of the 2 major world powers along with the united states and if you listen to president cheese speeches specially the his speech they actually get more so for speeches are like cut and paste speeches and he basically has the same message and it's rude it will contrast it with the united states measures or with the what's the message he's seeking development development mean stability stability mean security no interference in other country's affairs and certainly no mention whatsoever of democracy in any in a shape or form but certainly step beneath the trade prosperity and resolving differences through diplomatic means he's been saying that stating that all along
12:14 am
and i think he applies that to iran now as i said china perhaps is not really ready now to stand up to the united states on the question of iran but judging from russia's movement on syria probably beijing is drawing the lesson that you know what we could also stand up to the united states on iran now i'm saying that just to say that china could not become will never become a truly global power unless it becomes 1st erosional continent of power now how could it become a regional continental power if it cannot even throw its weight behind simple questions that touches its own security like north korea and touches asian security like iran i want to share as our senior political analysts will be talking to him again later on thank you. so the end for her isn't and could be brought before
12:15 am
a court next week the chief prosecutor says there will be referred to trial unless he files an appeal in the next few days the former leader is facing corruption charges remember he was deposed by the military and i pull off the months of weeks of protests even against his government we spoke to a sudanese a protest a little bit earlier and i'm as shams and she told us the prosecutors announcement is aimed at distracting people from the issue of the military crackdown on the protesters at the moment and feel like this is a side to b side news that distracting from the main issue right now which is how 0 the student was cleared and the t.m.c. already admitted that it was their fault and that they organized it and the operation failed completely and hundreds died because of it and injured so you are right now as this year is side news we want to get to the main issue we want negotiations to reach the end and we want our internet back so we can have the freedom to actually protest on the street and have everyone around the world see it
12:16 am
and mirrors so anything else besides. the negotiations and what happened in the syrian and the internet to be on the to do i feel like it to be traction and this isn't it people are not really. this is not news for us at the moment this is not our main concern and other rights groups and activists are demanding an international investigation into the killing of dozens of protesters in this month or a burden man he has more on that. people are demanding answers to what they're calling a massacre in khartoum that's off to sudan's ruling hunter admit it it made mistakes in breaking up the sit in that killed dozens of this month i'm a c international is urging the united nations and the african union to launch an international investigation into the military crackdown. protest leaders had the same demand in a statement they said the military council of knowledge meant of its responsibility
12:17 am
for the sitting massacre with the participation of security bodies makes a demand for forming an international inquiry commission by the united nations and african partners inevitable so far the military junta has rejected any outside interference. this moment in june this is marked in people's memories the last days of the muslim holy month of ramadan. gunshots rang out at security forces mainly from iraqi forces of the hour a sad story the protest camp outside the army headquarters more than $120.00 people were killed more than $600.00 injured schools of people disappeared. we are safir a paramilitary group made up of former members of the janitor with militia that was accused of atrocities in darfur the the the people gathered

some francisco has become. a city in the u.s. to ban stalls from refusing to accept cash store on a site this owners say the shift to exclusively digital payments is good for business but supporters of the new legislation say refusing cash is actually discriminatory ever listen to explains. this coffee shop in new jersey might have a distinctly retro vibe. but when owner travis clifton grew tired of the daily grind of dealing with cash he decided it was one blast from the past that needed a modern solution going cashless the big reasons well. you don't have to count the cash you don't have to reconcile the cash i don't have to put pressure on library system a show that the tills match up which means they can focus on given the customer the best service he became one of a growing number of store owners across the u.s. reeks of using to accept cash customers instead paying by cards or through their
12:39 am
cell phones but the move to digitize payments ended up being a short lived is a morning express so this year new jersey state legislature banned stores from refusing cash and over the state line new york city's council is also considering banning cashless stores following the footsteps of philadelphia and san francisco. but critics say digital only payments discriminate against the poor listen to this statistic the us government says there are 8000000 families in the us they don't even have a bank account or a credit card and another 20 $4000000.00 families that are under banked which means they might have a checking or savings account but rely on cash to survive. people like barbara best kids who has a learning disability and closed her bank account after getting hit with high fees
