8:32 pm
pressure that the us has been implementing and yes the iranians for the last 13 months is not really working not call our heads have to or prevail i think there has to be wiggle room for the iranians and there has to be a face saving approach busy for the americans to strike a deal or a compromise or and there are a mediation through or the iraqis or the europeans to have the americans give the european some leeway as a thaw in their companies to do some limited deals with the iranians as a show of good faith and a confidence building measure and that could really build up to the escalate the situation and to start again with another nuclear deal that they have any answer could be enticed and you cannot just push the enters or the of sticks and not carrots this policy of maximum pressure has to be reevaluated away from the edge a lot and the and the and the hocks and both sides of the aisles and then we'll you can talk about that is the escalation not a seasonal one ok has sent in tehran let's stay with that idea of wriggle room here
8:33 pm
is there a little bit of breathing space and i mean this in a positive sense for the government in tehran innes much is what we're talking about here is 6 monarchies all of whom all those royal households have worries about tehran but they're not on the same page the g.c.c. has been split for the best part of 2 years now. of course they are not on the same page on iran i mean on mon oncle way and especially nowadays they are no different than the hawks in the g.c.c. and i think the hocks are the ones who are trying so i agree with abdullah that they are they can't win the said the agenda for the us administration but they are trying to do that i think they are pushing the trump administration along with the you know hawks in washington to climb but tree that he eventually
8:34 pm
can come down from so he would be you know in a in a situation in which a war with iran would would diminish his chances for a 2nd term and. you know silence visa be the escalation in the region also can harm it reputation i think the this is the calculus there the warmongers that were there during the invasion of iraq are still in washington on the call and pushing the united states the president to do something about iran i think they have a very good partners in ahmed been sighted man hamad bin zeid bibi netanyahu they are as you've said the b. team that is pushing towards war i think they are there miscalculation can libin tie a region into. chaos and destabilisation i think it can also harm the global economy as well by you know all shocks and we've seen that 6
8:35 pm
percent to 6 percent rise of the all prices as a result of a single incident you can imagine how a war can translate into a chaos and they cannot make spear and you know prices and everything ok so i think they are pushing the united states towards a more irrational policy towards it. i think that can have really you know catastrophic. consequences regionally and internationally clearly helen in oxford this would have economically a massive impact if donald trump does do something that he backed away from doing 36 hours ago now for you helen how will this be being discussed in riyadh and is this a humiliation for mohammed bin selman because there is this compelling triangular relationship isn't there between donald trump his son in law jarrett the middle
8:36 pm
east peace plan which we are reportedly being told we will learn about at the end of this month when there's that big conference in bahrain and the crown prince. well 1st i'd like to say one quick thing relating to what was said earlier which is that. you know the u.s. administration is not unified i mean it's very clear that trump does not want to war but i think it's equally clear that we're told when we're dealing with people like pompei o and bolton that they do want to war and there are people for whom you know the force mageddon it's not bad news it's something that they and the most extremist religious groups in that part of the world you know would actually look forward to side think that's one element that we need to take into consideration i think on the issue of the relationship between m.b.'s and trump and. my recent thoughts on this topic is that really the relationship is directly between trump
8:37 pm
and m.b.a.'s and they have extremely similar personalities and approaches and ways of uproot of looking at the world and that they actually don't need the mediation of jehad kushner in between them i'm also my understanding about the glorious peace plan is that it's now not going to be announced until after the next israeli elections that the meeting the economic plan in bahrain which is probably going to be quite a bit of a fiasco is going to be discussing you know economic aspects without looking at the political aspects and monday standing is that certainly none of the palestinian organizations or most of the palestinian businesspeople or indeed most arab and other businesspeople are not willing to discuss these issues until and unless they have something that looks like a middle east peace plan which has some relationship to what was originally proposed by king abdullah almost 20 years ago now which basically gives it's
8:38 pm
a famous and notorious 2 state solution you know with with them as the capital of palestine which has been basically carved out. destroyed by trump's recognition of . the capital of israel so i 9 think you know we we have the internal dynamics of that element have not not really very much affected by this except of course if we have a total crisis that basically may have put these things entirely in the background . when you're looking at this situation in south pardon me for interrupting her let's just put that point with. city a dollar i mean the prime directive here for the trumpet ministration is isolate tehran isolate iran that's a given but is there a sense in which the allies the united arab emirates saudi arabia and israel are going to be more isolated because you have the u.a.e. seen and i quote we will not be baited into
8:39 pm
a conflict and yet you still have this more provocative tone out of riyadh you know i mean at the end of the day we have a symmetrical g.c.c. and all other u.s. allies there is a symmetrical relationship united states is the dominant the only hyper power in the world than all other all its allies are just followers at the end of the dead rather than on equal footing with the united states us not only in the g.c.c. little countries but it's also all other countries even in nato i mean lecturing busy even germany and major powers even england even even the france. this is a problem with the united states at the end of the day there is now clear comprehensive strategic approach to the regional problems and crises and that by itself is much to the cross their fists it that the united states are allies. are
8:40 pm
witnessing now we said we the united states and what is what is the comprehensive strategy now after 13 months around is not budging iran is that more defiant than ever the the. 10 that president trump did and the last 2nd on the last 10 minutes as he stated targeting 3. revolutionary guards targets in iran has emboldened the iranians have any us now are speaking with a lot of our boss think about their resistance they are they have summoned the sharjah the effort of the united arab emirates their revolution that regard leaders . and their very both full manner of threatening any bullet that will be attacking iran we will turn the region upside down and we will be targeting the american interests american interests are widely open i mean at the bases from kuwait to amman are very clear within the iranian missile site
8:41 pm
and they're also our of the g.c.c. major installation whether it's all whether it's a tricky grid whether it is water distilling nation are all dotted all over the gulf from kuwait all month so there is a lot of vulnerability and they are any thought of playing on this as a deterrence now deterrence that the americans were trying to employ against the iranians have been turned on its head now the end any hands are the ones who are calling the shots in a way of that what they think and this is a very dangerous because that will give them more wiggle room to try to do much in and against a lot i'm going to interrupt what you say and as we are heading towards the end of our time test and i do want to get in a couple more significant points. if we flip around this idea of u.s. allies there are not necessarily allies in the region allies of tiran but there are
8:42 pm
historical links there is a good relationship between tehran and oman but amman is firefighting its own issues on the back foot regional issues as well would tehran be open to the idea of talking to its allies who could then maybe communicate with donald trump. well i think iran has made it clear that it's open to talk to and who want but has it always it has also been clear on the fact that it want you know surrender so to speak it want to give up any of its you know powers sources and within iran and the region it the basic argument is that we have embarked on a. negotiation with the world community and the result of visit was there j.c. the nuclear deal the united states didn't respect its own didn't observe its on
8:43 pm
obligations within that jason. jason and i think that is a very you know robust argument here into iran that a step back will lead to many more so as has been the case for now nuclear deal led to us with all and again more sanctions and more push against the iranians so another step would lead to more so this this argument is basically stopping iran and its allies from you know negotiating with an administration that doesn't respect the word that it's signed helen like there in oxford very very briefly because we've got about 2 minutes left is donald trump still on a collision course with iran is he on a collision course with himself if he listens to john bolton because if donald trump is tilting the other way what's the point of john bolton and is he if he
8:44 pm
doesn't do what john bolton would like him to do or his 3 key allies in the region on a collision course with each other. well i think it's clear that there is increasing disagreements between trump and both and and one can only hope at this point that trump will replace both and by a sigh and compel indeed by people who are less. involved in basically fanatical anti event nion plans which just are completely ignoring the dangers that these involved i think for the m.b.a.'s certainly wants to do you know would be probably voting with the boat and pump a 0 in in this argument and he definitely wants to do something but i think what is clear is that you know one wonders to what extent particularly m.b.a.'s is aware of his own military weaknesses. i mean the whole yemen operation is
8:45 pm
demonstrates that the saudi military aren't exactly the most brilliant and competent in the world and if the conflict with iran develops beyond the occasional last strike or something else which is what would happen if it becomes a bigger conflict i think the you know the various gulf states will have to be involved and i think what the previous speakers have spoken about which has been did the complete divisions within the g.c.c. and the fact that certainly would do nothing other than attempt to mediate and try and bring peace and i suspect that. kuwait would also largely try and do the same. so it seems to me that you know the. common dependence on u.s. strikes is something that will continue unless they get replaced by its very you know make things even worse that the saudis on their own i'm not going to do
8:46 pm
anything beyond constant ending creasing provocative statements and demands and trying to push the u.s. into deeper involvement ok helen i'm going to have to stop you there because we're out of time i have to say thank you to all our guests today they were. helen thank you to you too for your company you can see the show again anytime on the website al-jazeera dot com and for more discussion to check out our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can join the conversation on twitter at a.j. inside story or tweet me i'm at peace at all be one for me and everyone on the team here in doha thanks for watching see tomorrow.
