2:11 pm
rouhani that iran will stick to the iran deal and he sat that that's what the iranian president said that they will stick to the deal also words of caution not only from russia but also from china to iran to stick with the deal but at the same time i said the deputy foreign minister ripped off actually also said that he is very concerned about the steps by iran to produce more iranian but also said that he can understand that iran is taking these kinds of steps looking at the sanctions that they are facing but basically russia and china positioning themselves of course in this situation as as a speech makers as mediators urging for calm also said that if the u.s. wants to prove it doesn't want war then it should not send additional troops to the region he says just show to us that you don't want war and they were for pretty strong words but adopted to foreign minister here in moscow would be interesting to
2:12 pm

2:13 pm
or pro-democracy members of hong kong legislative council so carolyn's apology came too little too late they reiterated calls for her to step down saying home goals people no longer trust. every lamb is actually presenting to the rest of the world that her administration it's going to be a lame duck and ministration because she would have a very hard line governing hong kong from now on she acknowledged herself that it's all a question of trust and. confidence in her administration which have become completely non existent because our clock has the latest from the whole goal. it's her 1st apology on camera and certainly to the public she was criticized for being cowardly by not facing the public on camera until now over today she issued a sincere public apology she said she misjudged the situation she misjudged the
2:14 pm
fury and the anger on the streets of hong kong when we saw 2000000 people march on the weekend she said she would show that most of the blame for this she said she understands the feeling of the public just as the passion of the people in hong kong but she shares that that passion she's also said that she will widely consult the various different groups about the future of the forward moving in this particular extradition go forward certainly today has been a public personal sincere apology but what the protesters have wanted that one particular item that they want to but they also want her to resign and i want this bill scrapped and that hasn't happened today so a protest is obviously responding to this and we've heard from a couple of groups already they're not happy they said none of their demands have been met they said she didn't step down and she says that the now so they're going to meet the democrats tomorrow and other democrats on the pro-democracy nor macon's in hong kong parliament they're going to discuss their wife or but they've always said that if their demands are not met by thursday they will escalate the protest
2:15 pm
action in a couple of weeks we have another big rally here that marks july 1st which is the handover of this former british territory to china that's always an anniversary it's marked here in hong kong and no doubt the message from these protests is about the extradition bill will be heard loud and clear at that particular rally so a clock that well still ahead here on al-jazeera we look at donald trump's time in office as he gets ready to launch his reelection campaign to stay with us. hello there there's a lot of dry weather across the northern parts of asia at the moment the heavier rain is largely staying to. the south of us is working its way out of china just skirting the southern parts of japan here then looks like that system will just push further south woods as we head through the day on wednesday so for japan there will still be a large amount of cloud one or 2 showers but it will be the persistent and heavy
2:16 pm
rain that it would have been otherwise towards the west it's largely a lot quieter here weather wise it looks like it should be dry forcing beijing but the temperature is a certainty rising by the time we get to thursday will be right about $57.00 degrees of a further towards the south and in the east we've got the wettest of the weather at the moment and that looks like it's going to stick around as we head through wednesday and into thursday and on thursday we'll see more rain push up towards wu han that the south coast will see a good deal of cloud and there's always the chance of one or 2 showers around hong kong and if the south would still and we've got a few showers for us in the philippines but there is more showers towards the west we'll see plenty of them over parts of borneo and across towards the modern further north for samia ma it's still raining very heavily and it will be for wednesday and thursday as well so that is likely to be more of a problem with flooding here is in the southern parts of our map where there's more in the way of drawing weather looks like it should be fine forcing java just off to a $31.00.
2:17 pm
base is a dialogue reading about it for months and seeing it on international media and on t.v. why should we stop this conversation with skepticism because there's a lot of it online everyone has a voice we are being taken advantage of just because we are small community without the let's work just each hope join the global conversation on ours is iraq all they want to do is start to think the same kind of debate that we have here in the street. welcome back you're watching al-jazeera means a whole rahman

a security risk well turkey is going to head and launch their own fighter jet you can see it behind me they say that is simply a fighter jet that's going to replace their aging f. 16 fighter jet planes they say that it will be flying by 2025 and perhaps will be in full service by 2028 but some experts here with our say show say it will be quite a challenge to have it up and running by then because even with the f. 35 there were so many technical difficulties and issues issues to come to to take care of it is very difficult to have this kind of technologically advanced plane flying in such a short space of time and of course there are repercussions for turkey if they are expelled from the u.s. or $35.00 program. well turkey is infested a $1000000000.00 in the f. $35.00 jet program turkey is a member of nato that's why it's in this program with the united states say it is building components for the f. 35 its pilots who are being trained to fly it and it was expecting his delivery
2:21 pm
over hundreds of these f. 35 for it to jet so if it is exposed from the program it's obviously a great loss in material terms and also in terms of the skills that it's acquiring through being part of this project is also of course has diplomatic repercussions because it's makes the relationship between the united states and psyche which is already strained over a number of issues particularly in terms of foreign policy well that relationship is even more strained now live with the phenomena of course follow them through the day with you thanks very much and sasha. causing kenya is to deliver a verdict for suspects charge the 2015 the time congress university form and face life in prison for the killing of 148 people most of them students but some of the survivors say the attackers initially killed indiscriminately but later released it was them students a 5th suspect was acquitted for lack of evidence catherine sawyer is in nairobi covering the trial force. this is an eagerly awaited verdict here in kenya the 4
