6:00 pm
this is al jazeera. hello and welcome to the saudis are a news hour live from our martin desk coming up in the next 60 minutes iran says it's determined to reduce its commitment under the 2050 nuclear deal just hours after the u.s. imposed a new round of sanctions. palestinians boycott a u.s. led investment conference for the middle east saying their dignity cannot be paul. a prime minister in tears ethiopians mourn the loss of military leaders killed during saturday's failed rebellion in the north. he terms of your schools as england struggle image change of 286 against australia at the cricket world cup
6:01 pm
last year ago iowa heading into the quarter finals of the corporate america after beating champions chile. iran is remaining defiant after the u.s. placed new sanctions this time targeting its top leadership including the supremes leader ayatollah ali how many tehran says it will go ahead with its plan to reduce its commitments to the 250 nuclear deal despite the increasing pressure the u.s. national security advisor john bolton he's warned that all options remain on the table if iran continues to conceive what he called its nuclear ambitions but iran says monday's sanctions have now permanently closed all avenues for diplomacy it calls him outrageous and idiotic and accuses washington of lie and then there's russia russia's accuse. the u.s.
6:02 pm
is being reckless moscow is warning of a dangerous scenario if tension between washington and tehran continues to mount and then there's france saying it's working with britain and germany to try to deescalate this crisis we'll go live to roslyn jordan in washington in just a while 1st so that still it is a measure of the our correspondent in tehran so this latest batch of of sanctions aimed aimed at the top leadership of iran perhaps meant more to send a tough message than for this specific effect. that's exactly right martine the sanctions the american sanctions on iran that have been ongoing for several years now are so sweeping so complete that these new sanctions are almost entirely symbolic but in iran that is the exact problem for many people what is symbolic in this case is definitely hopeful the supreme leader
6:03 pm
ayatollah ali khamenei he occupies an incredibly important space in iranian public life he is in many ways untouchable criticizable if you will and so these sanctions that are targeting him the highest office of the country for many iranian leaders are a source of anger and are no doubt going to escalate tensions between iran and the united states even further. in his 1st public appearance since iran shot down a u.s. surveillance drone last week president hassan rouhani did not hold back he said the latest sanctions targeting iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei are the irrational actions of a confused government to try to know all about how they are suffering from mental disability the white house is afflicted by mental retardation and does not know what to do. the supreme leader occupies such a protected position in public life that in iran insulting him is illegal in the u.s. applying pariah status to someone so highly revered has angered leaders into iran
6:04 pm
you know i don't mean a person loses his mind and does something insane and stupid so want they say they will put sanctions on our leaders property but what is our leaders property a simple house and a ceremony. iran is under such sweeping sanctions that the latest american move is entirely symbolic but later this week washington has said it will add iran's foreign minister zarif to the sanctions list attacking the country's top diplomat is something to her and says permanently close is the path to diplomacy main enemy . if you're being honest and want to negotiate why simple taney asli do you want to impose sanctions on the foreign minister so it is clear that you are lying as the u.s. continues its pressure campaign russia has vowed to help iran counter new u.s. sanctions if. iran has been and remains our ally and partner and we consistently develop our relations both bilateral and multilateral which means any attempt to portray tehran as
6:05 pm
a main threat to regional security or to bring it into line with isis or other terrorist groups is unacceptable to us. but some u.s. officials remain undeterred the president has held the door open to real negotiations to completely and verifiably eliminated iran's nuclear weapons program its pursuit of ballistic missile delivery systems its support for international terrorism and its other malign behavior worldwide all that iran needs to do is to walk through that open door on tuesday foreign minister zarif said once again iran's religious views mean it will never pursue a nuclear weapon iran he also reminded people that america is the only nation to ever drop nuclear bombs on another country. now world leaders want cooler heads to prevail and washington says that it wants to use
6:06 pm
dialogue to calm things down but the decision to sanction iran's supreme leader is something so so insulting that in tehran of might make a negotiated solution nearly impossible. all right zain thank you for that same bizarre via correspondent in toronto well we will go to correspondent in washington in just a moment but let's just have a look at the tweet the most recent tweet. come out from president trump where he's talking of responding to the comments of today saying iran is very ignorant and insulting statement not only does it show that they don't understand reality any attack by iran on anything american will be met with great whelming force in the end by saying this is no more no more john kerry no more bomber ok rose children standing by for us in washington or it's a pretty similar stuff then coming out from the president on twitter but this does seem generally rosalyn to be
6:07 pm
a huge amount of stick and not very much carrot in terms of iran policy. well it's very much a lot of rhetoric a lot of belligerent rhetoric coming from the trumpet ministration and as we heard from zain bashar be in teheran the iranians are having none of it now of course this is a situation martain where the u.s. is also trying to build international support for its efforts to continue to isolate iran economically and diplomatically but it is finding it a very tough row to hoe to use the expression the many other countries particularly european countries are very skeptical about the u.s. efforts to further isolate iran and to try to negotiate an alternative to the 2015 iran nuclear deal they have said in recent hours that they're very concerned about the ratcheting of tensions between washington and tehran but
6:08 pm
the u.s. for its part is trying to say look iran is a is an existential threat not just to us not just to mid east interests but to the interests of countries in europe and in asia and it's hoping that that argument might be persuasive but so far martine they've not picked up many supporters for their efforts to further isolate iran indeed interestingly roles they didn't get the full support of the russians either did they don't both and the russians meeting in west jerusalem today the russians were quite categorically that they saying that actually this train was flying every ron reagan esque face. that's right the russians have always taken a big side that we're on the us efforts in the middle east but of course that might well be because the u.s. itself has been skeptical of russian intentions in the middle east particularly in
6:09 pm
the civil war inside syria but this is also a situation where at least you have both the russians and the americans in the same room talking about shared security concerns and talking about ways of trying to stabilize the middle east whether this is a harbinger of perhaps a new sort of detente between the u.s. and russia remains to be seen but there is very it is notable that the russians were very plainspoken in their skepticism on how the u.s. sees iranian efforts to extend its foreign policy objectives across the middle east obviously the russians how want to make certain that their interests are protected but again that they were speaking frankly to each other and in front of the cameras is perhaps a note worthy moment at this moment at this situation all right ruffling job live
6:10 pm
in washington thanks very much indeed now we can speak to. him his agenda send a political commentator he's joining us live from the iranian capital tehran thanks very much indeed for taking the time to talk to us the let's start with what iran is now planning to do iran is saying that it's now preparing to breach the 2015 nuclear deal even more say it's been warned by the french and the other europeans that this would be a very very serious mistake. thanks for our own well marking you know iran has quite a long time ever since the vehicle was destroyed back in 215. you know iran has been in. accomplice with its undertakings under the agreement but it has never received any merits of the deal neither on their the trunk of obama administration nor in time donald trump the fact is that ever since the us
6:11 pm
dropped the nuclear deal the europeans have been promising to iran cooperation in 11 economic areas banking trade revenues per chasing and bringing back the revenues of these crude supplies they have never done anything even in states that amounts to even less than one percent of what has been promised to tehran has not been put into operation so tehran eventually started a new shift in strategy this is rather edgy that came into practice less than 2 months ago is called resists active resistance but it means that when iran has to pay the costs all right the other side should also pay the costs are and that's why they have started modifying the deal and they will continue right effectively there with the increased amount of uranium being in is it round walking
6:12 pm
out of the deal completely is it scrapping the deal once this next phase of the uranium enrichment gets underway is that the end of the day. well there have been many points in the j.c. and many marriages for the americans and europeans one is called the so called you know. of your a name enrichment stock. that has been kept under the nuclear deal more importantly is the regime of inspections that have been imposed on iran on their safeguard agreements as well as the additional protocol to the n.p.t. the iran has been in compliance with this very of voluntary view of course therefore to the point is that iran plans to reduce its obligations step by step in order to provide a chance to give a chance to the europeans to you know of fulfill their promises but i
6:13 pm
personally believe that your all peons would make a final decision on july the 7th when iran embarks on the 2nd phase of these modifications either of you know provide tehran with the merits or more possibly as . they don't have the will or the power to provide tehran with the merits so they would. end the way right diplomatically iran is particularly isolated at this moment in so doing if it goes ahead with this modification as you put it of its commitment to the way effectively will be kissing goodbye to his only friends it's only friends who are the europeans and that perhaps russia but nobody would be in agreement with a round next action. oh no let me
6:14 pm
disagree with you in this regard many world countries are witness that iran has been in full compliance iran has been loyal to its undertakings and this is been the us that has been escalating the tensions the way to keep the nuclear deal live is not pressured into iran to give more and more concessions to paan in the party that has violated the nuclear deal on the other hand russians have stress that there would be no shy of supporting to iran against the new us sanctions they have made public announcement in this regard a couple of days ago busy a very influential chinese decision maker was in toronto speaking to some politicians saying that ever since iran shut down the global hot their strategic view about iran has changed and they believe now that iran carries more weight than they thought not just because of the corage to iran showed the american aggressive
6:15 pm
move but also because of the very sophisticated and advents technology that iran has in area of radars and myside systems that could target and shut down the american drone therefore i believe many regional nations as well as china russia they are supporting to iran they supported the wrong when the ron was in the black list of fat if as well as under u.n. u.s. e.u. sanctions the last time at a time of obama there is no reason to believe that at such a time. between the u.s. and china u.s. and russia and others they would leave tehran alone basically. chinese officials declared last week that it's time for iran china and russia to develop a strategic buns especially that was true when the russians demand that the same thing. very interesting to to tina's and i thank you very much. there are
6:16 pm
a lot more to come on this out of the reviews are including a quest for justice saudi journalist jamal khashoggi fiance appeals for an international investigation into his murder and why the u.n. says climate change will be particularly bad for poor communities around the world . and in sport the we'll hear from the winners at the n.b.a. basketball awards including one very emotional acceptance speech. right to bahrain now where an economic meeting to discuss u.s. plans for palestine and the broader region is under way it's an initiative that is led by the white house senior adviser jared kirshner he's behind what president calls the deal of the century the economic part of the plan proposes
6:17 pm
$50000000000.00 worth of investment in palestine over 10 years the palestinian authority though is boycotting the event in israel has not been invited but the u.s. national security advisor john bolton says the white house is optimistic. well i think it's a mistake for the palestinians to boycott it the thing that makes it unique is the economic aspect of it to say look the prospects for palestinians for israelis for everybody in the region. if we could find an acceptable agreement between israel and the palestinians is incredibly bright and rather than litigate decades of disputes think about the future and to go see it on that basis so we'll see how it goes i think we're optimistic i think the presence of the mystic and i hope the palestinians are optimistic to do. well has been speaking to
6:18 pm
al-jazeera and he told us that his economic proposal offers palestinians and the region an opportunity for stability right now from unama we're focused on the economic aspects of what could be possible if there is a resolution but what i will say is that you know all of the people i speak to you know they talk about the arab peace initiative and again it was a it was a great effort but if that was where a deal was going to be made a deal would be made a long time ago i think we all have to recognize that if there ever is a deal it's not going to be along the lines of the arab peace initiative will be somewhere between the arab peace initiative and somewhere between the israeli position. so as you have already indicated palestinians are not best pleased by this proposal being discussed in bahrain protests have been taking place and a general strike ingles that there be more in the coming days across the palestinian territory demonstrators say the billions of dollars and a 1000000 jobs that are offered by this plan by president means little if there's
6:19 pm
no political solution to this decades old conflict but jericho's is expected to unveil what is the economic part of this plan and as i say in bahrain. matheson is our correspondent now in gaza city. it's estimated there are 2000000 people living in the moment that's about 5600 every square kilometers but the streets of gaza city are quieter this tuesday morning because there's a general strike which is opposed to the economic part of the u.s. plan to try to find a solution to the israeli palestinian crisis according to palestinian official figures in 2852 percent of gazans didn't have jobs gaza's infrastructure is struggling on tuesday morning israel said it wasn't sending any fuel to gaza's only power plant and they said it was because gazans had been flying balloons carrying flares into israel in the hopes of setting fires. under the u.s.
6:20 pm
plan with gaza would be entitled to a share of about $28000000000.00 in investment that would be designed to rebuild the infrastructure and it hopes to create about a 1000000 jobs but people here in gaza say that's not the point the main priority for them is a political solution. and say that the u.s. plan is designed to distract from the main political objectives the right to return to land which they say is theirs and the removal of controls put on them by mainly the israelis not. the israelis say those controls are necessary to stop weapons coming to gaza that could be used against them but the gazans say those controls are at least in part responsible for the poor state of gaza's economy they say to remove the controls and the economy will improve for the people of gaza the important point is to find a political solution to this crisis and only then will they start talking about the
6:21 pm
money that have also been protests at a refugee camp for palestinians in lebanon then a harder is a correspondent. the children of the $948.00 palestinian refugees now living in lebanon they're taking part in this demonstration to protest the conference taking place in bahrain which is the scuffing the trumpet ministrations middle east economic police plan and people here are angry because they believe the trumpet ministration is pushing for a peace settlement that does not involve their right to return these refugees have been living in exile for 17 years now and they believe any solution to the israeli palestinian conflict house to involve the right to return to life is very difficult here they live in urban camps in very dire conditions and so the feeling here or the message from the refugees is that palestine is not for sale no matter how much
6:22 pm
money you offer us we are not going to give up our rights to return home i was you know the whole of. the deal of the century in the rejection to the buffering summit eccles the thoughts of every palestinian around the world we stand behind the palestinian national leadership and its decisions we say no to the deal of the century palestine will not be sold we cling to our right of return to palestine we claim to the land of our ancestors this is our right till the end of time when. the deal of the century is not new for the palestinians are 5 to continue whether they agree or not we don't care about what's happening we have men and refugees in europe and all around the world and they will never let go of palestine everything that's happening now is nonsense our weapons are pointed at the zionist enemy. palestinians feel the united states is not an honest broker they believe that its alliance with israel means that any settlement that they propose will be tilted in
6:23 pm
favor of the israelis and the question they ask here is that if they care so much about our economic conditions then why don't they live this. on gaza and why did. decide to. do united nations relief and works agency which is the only organization providing help to these people 11 on the host countries also not attending the conference in solidarity with the palestinians lebanese officials fear that the deal of the century of the so-called deal of the century will involve naturalizing and resettling palestinian refugees in the host country something that this country says it will not accept. the field say of the murdered saudi journalist jamal khashoggi has called on the un to take action on its findings over his killing she was speaking at an event held by the human rights council in geneva alongside other victims of repressive governments victoria has more.

6:33 pm

6:34 pm
sponsored conference taking place involving rain washington is calling for $50000000000.00 of investment as part of an israeli palestinian peace plan by the palestinians say their freedom and dignity cannot be bolts. that the u.n. agency that's responsible for palestinian refugees is also in for more than a $1000000000.00 to fund it services delegates from around the world are meeting at the annual pledging conference taking place in new york last year the u.s. which is the. agency's largest stand to cut $300000000.00 putting millions of palestinian refugees at risk she have returned he is our correspondent following the meeting he's joining us live now from the u.n. in new york how's it going then with the americans deciding they're not going to fund this is that prompting other countries to step up to the plate. it is in fact i mean the shudder of that american decision to cut off all funding
6:35 pm
1st they reduced funding last year now on $29000.00 there is no funding from the u.s. for an era that is obviously having over this entire meeting and the most immediate concern is that there's a cash flow problem actually for the 1st few months up until the end of may and rowe was funded but if it doesn't get 2 $111000000.00 they say as soon as possible then schools were reopened 450-0000 palestinian refugee children at the end of august early september food supplies for a 1000000 people in gaza may be affected i think that the rest of the may well be funded if the donors who are donating do do give their pledges but right now they need that $200000000000.00 to ensure that supplies education isn't disrupted are not causes in the past as we've seen when education and food are disrupted it can lead to enormous instability in the occupied territories and i do remember actually when the americans announced that they were pulling out of funding for undera it was the europeans who declared at least that they were prepared to take on a bigger share of the burden is they following through on that promise.
6:36 pm
well i was the amazing things for them when the u.s. pulled out all the same ounce to they were they were ending or reducing and ending their funding 42 countries did step in and increase their share of on raw funding and amazingly for the un actually met that funding they actually gave the money they handed over the money last year so i think this is this meeting is in part actually to ensure that this year the same thing happens but that u.s. decision is fascinating because the same reasons why the u.s. said it was ending on refunding of a similar sort of arguments we're hearing in bahrain from jared kush not that this is all for the palestinians own good that we're stepping out of hoping fund education health care food for palestinians for their own good because under a isn't good enough for them they deserve a long term solution that jarred cushion argument about teaching amount of fish and so on so the same arguments are being used as a suspicion that by squeezing the palestinians further clearly it might make them
6:37 pm
more amenable to the deal of the century the financial aspects of bad also there's a suspicion and it's highly over what people are saying right now is that the u.s. is attack on russia which is the agency specifically to deal and help palestinian refugees is about perhaps pretending that there's no longer a question about refugees and the right of return if there's no u.n. agency overseeing palestinian refugees $5000000.00 of them in the diaspora and in the occupied territories if you're just looking at those perhaps in the occupied territories themselves as you specifically left in 148 well perhaps there is no question of refugees anymore there's that suspicion that like jerusalem trump is at the top of ministrations trying to say look there is no problem now because we've decided there isn't one and so therefore it undergoes there's no question of right refugee right of return and we can just move on with the political aspects of the deal of the century so that's a suspicion that we're sitting here to all right thank you for that she had she have a tansey at the u.n. in new york and he made reference to that conference is taking place in bahrain
6:38 pm
we'll have coverage of it of course here on al-jazeera but maybe you. craney and delegates they've all turned out of a meeting of a european based human rights body after russia's voting rights were restored the council of europe which is not linked to the e.u. suspended last year 5 years ago after it alixe the ukrainian territory of crimea its 47 members largely supported moscow's return in order to help protect the human rights of russian citizens but ukraine says there should be no concessions to russia until crimea is returned well the ukrainian president volodymyr selenski as he's added his voice saying he's disappointed with the decision to let russia return severson has more from moscow. a small victory for russia amidst all the sanctions from the european union russia has now reinstated as a voting member foetid member in the council of busy for europe to be a c.e.o. the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe has basically reinstated these
6:39 pm
rights for russia after they were taken away in 2014 after the annexation of crimea the consul sas this is important because they want don't want this division in europe they want to engage russia despite these sanctions and their concerns they want to be able to go also to russia to see the human rights situation here but the ukrainian delegation was very angry and they say this is basically a whitewash of this crimean annexation and also the involvement of russia in eastern ukraine during the war there and they basically left this session today is very angrily and also the president of ukraine dolinsky has very much protested against it it was not only ukraine but also the bell think states have voted against this new photo rights again for russia russia itself is very positive moscow said this is not only
6:40 pm
a victory for diplomacy but also victory for common sense without russia the council for your with simply not complete so basically this is has to cause not only a divide with ukraine but also with georgia and there's also another problem happening at the moment because many people have been protesting and have been scanned thing anti russian slogans there so does is also a problem and the president putin immediately has stopped flights from moscow to to georgia starting july 8th which not only has affected tour operators and airlines but also russian tourists who increasingly go to georgia so basically a lot of conflicts and problems on the plates here not only in in ukraine but in georgia and moscow itself. police in cambodia have charged 7 people that saturday's building collapse that killed at least $28.00 people prime minister hun sen visited
6:41 pm
the site in syria knoxville on monday as search teams continued to look for trapped construction workers the unfinished 7 story building was part of a recent rush of chinese investment in the area when hay has more from bangkok. like most of the development happening in syria knoxville this was a chinese project and most of the people who have now been charged following the collapse of the building that was still under construction on saturday a chinese nationals including the owner of the building and the construction supervisor who have been charged with involuntary manslaughter this is a town that just a few years ago was a sleepy coastal town popular with backpackers but is now being transformed into a gambling town really with at least 70 casinos being built or already completed most of them a chinese projects and the issue generally of chinese investment in cambodia is one that is creating a lot of tension in many communities right around the country there are concerns
6:42 pm
