3:00 am
the iranians has it well the iranian diplomats of course are going to say you know this was a step forward but it's not enough i mean that's part of the game of diplomacy i think we have to see recognize what happened today the mechanism for facilitating legitimate trade that the europeans have been talking about was just made operational today it's called instax there were 5 additional european countries today that announced that they would participate in that that mechanism to facilitate legitimate trade with iran china reaffirmed that it would not respect the us 0 oil exports policy and it clearly is going to try to continue to buy oil from iran which is very important for the iranian perspective so i think these are important steps in the right direction and i think when the diplomats from the iranian delegation go back to tehran i think there may be i hope a positive shift in the iranian approach and they're not going to try to. put even
3:01 am
more pressure by. on the situation by pulling further out of the g c p a way one of the major problem seems to be all say the fact that on the one hand the u.s. is offering negotiation some sort of dialogue and the iranians are responding by saying how can we stop talking with you when you go joe. through and so they're saying that. sanctions to this degree is a kind of economic warfare they've been weaponized. well i think iran has a point here i mean the trumpet ministrations approach has i think failed iran is less willing to talk than they were when donald trump took office they are not changing their behavior in the region that the trump ministration is concerned about the europeans and other parties to the j c p a way are sticking by the g c p a way and not coming on to the trumpet ministration side so the trump policy is failing i think their offer of talks is somewhat disingenuous the way to get back
3:02 am
to progress is for the united states to rethink its policy and eventually return to the j c p a way for the iranians to stay inside the limits of the g c p a way and i think that may be possible if the deal can survive another year and a half or so because most of the us democratic presidential candidates support us re entry into the j c p way if iran is complying all right there is so the start of the end of the tunnels so it sorry to interrupt but of course there is a possibility that the trump administration will get back in and i'm one of the major complaints one of the original complaints by by president jump in so it was the fact that. they didn't it didn't get far enough basically didn't cover. iran's program of ballistic missiles for instance nor did it make any mention of every round activities military activities in the region and beyond. that's true that's
3:03 am
why it's called that nuclear deal not a missile deal or a regional security deal. you know the logical approach would be to build upon the j c p a way not to dismantle it remove the limits on iran's nuclear program and then try to negotiate an even broader deal i think the more appropriate approach which the europeans the russians the chinese and many democrats support is to preserve the j.c.t. way implement it fully and then have negotiations to deal with the other issues not dealt with on nuclear matters in the j c p a way and to have further talks with iran on mutual issues of concern in the region so i guess your belief is then that without the j c p a a no message whether it's florida or not the world the region the world is a much more dangerous place it certainly is because without the limits of the j.c.
3:04 am
without the inspections by the i.a.e.a. of iran's nuclear activities iran is going to reconstitute eventually over time the capabilities it had prior to 2015 when the j.c. was concluded and that is going to create if we get to that point a new nuclear crisis a higher risk of war and conflict between the united states and iran we don't want to go down that road and that is where the trouble ministrations policy and iran's retaliatory actions are taking us daryl kimball thank you very much indeed for talking to us live from washington now officials in the u.s. it reportedly concluded that drone attacks targeting saudi pipeline in may but actually launch from iraq according to the wall street journal which is reporting that official u.s. sources claim iran backed militias are responsible for these groups operate in southern iraq according to the journal the iraqi government wants to know more
3:05 am
about these allegations all right let's go to roslyn job now our correspondent in washington tell us more about the bullshit the wall street journal is actually saying. no martain what the journal is reporting is that this and this incident which happened at 2 different spots on the south east west pipeline which crisscrosses the country back on may 14th this was a drone attack at the time the rebels who have been fighting to take control of yemen claimed that they had carried out the attacks but it nell seems according to what's being reported in the journal that u.s. intelligence has divined that it was in fact iran backed militias based inside southern iraq that carried out the attack so again from the u.s.
3:06 am
perspective this is iran again exerting its malign influence around the region and in particular attacking one of the closest partners in the middle east they're not saying exactly what the evidence was that u.s. officials presented to iraqi officials earlier this month but they do know that when the secretary of state michael pompei o spoke with the prime minister mr. vaca in the middle of it in that he brought up the incident brought up the evidence and said that the iraqi government has to be no much more aggressive in dealing with iran backed militias in the country the u.s. of course is well aware that iran and iraq do have a sort of relationship they are physical neighbors after all but the response from iraqi officials has been we're not certain that this evidence is actually conclusive you need to prove it to us and of course there's no word yet on whether
3:07 am
the u.s. has presented more evidence to the iraqis about the involvement the alleged involvement of iran backed militias in the southern part of the country of course and this is a situation that simply adds another. they are of concern to the ongoing tensions between the u.s. and iran and it certainly also raises questions about a long running issue that the u.s. has had with the iraqi government because of its past engagement with the iranian government in the last 1516 years. live from washington thank you. lots more to come on this news hour including anger against us in solidarity with the palestinians thousands marching in yemen against america's so-called deal of the century. the world's largest migration crisis in the making dire warnings about the situation in venezuela. as

a red faces only f one track these as reaction from an eventful practice sessions in all 3 of. the regional tensions trade wars personal differences have all been in the spotlight on day one of the g. 20 summit in japan and a meeting between the russian president and the u.s. president has perhaps drawn the most attention president putin invited the u.s. president to visit russia next chair from also white house correspondent kimberly halkett. smiles and even a fist bump between japanese leader shinzo india's narendra modi and u.s. president donald trump even though prior to their g 20 meeting trump criticized both. and at a g. 20 leaders family photo trump was again smiling with saudi arabia's crown prince
3:09 am
mohammed bin salman even though u.s. intelligence congress and the united nations say the kingdom was responsible for the murder of journalist. also notable during that photo op chinese president xi seeking out trump in the midst of their ongoing trade war to shake hands that gesture was apparently lost on trump despite she's defense of china's digital policies trump indirectly blame she's government for intellectual property theft and risks to 5 g. security at the same time as we expand digital trade we must also ensure the resilience and security of our 5 g. networks this is essential to our shared safety and prosperi. the process of data collection analysis and circulation east but we also need to respect our soldiers and rights each nation. with their differences foreshadow a potentially tense meeting between the leaders of the world's 2 largest economies
3:10 am
on saturday and less hope for resolving the us china trade war but looming over all of this was trump's meeting with russian president vladimir putin their 1st since u.s. special counsel robert muller released his report detailing russian interference the 2016 u.s. election instead of forcefully confronting him issued just a light hearted warning. a white house readout of trump's meeting with the paris cast arms control venezuela syria and iran but there's no mention. action interference and trump's half hearted word of caution to putin well someone expected is once again in biting criticism for trump's failure to forcefully confront russia's leader can't really help it al-jazeera. that russia china and india all have something in common and
3:11 am
that's their rather frayed state of relations with the united states the 3 leaders have been meeting on the sidelines of the g. 20 and talked about how to bolster ties between themselves and our cooperation in the format of russia india and china could become an example of creating a modern fair multi-polar world there rejects protectionism policies of unilateral actions any legal sanctions saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin solomon was center stage alongside president trump for the family photo of leaders after being pretty much isolated the last 20 summit here's our correspondent jamal. there was a great deal of anticipation and questions being asked in the buildup to the g. 20 summit with regards to what kind of a reception saudi crown prince will have been some man would receive his positioning in that family photograph this time around here on the. not necessarily that significant because it is customary for the country which will host the next
3:12 am
edition of the g 20 summit there are presidents have to be standing next to or south side by side with the current host and that's why we saw in those pictures this time around kind of inside a man square in the center as opposed to how he was the last time the g 20 met in one osiris in argentina where the crown prince was left essentially sun at the back corner of this stage there what's more telling isn't the surliest positioning but sort of the way in we've certainly there is dealt with and sides he approached that very warm handshake which he went forward to give with the russian president vladimir putin similar to that one that he gave back in argentina but more significantly was u.s. president donald trump ensuring that everybody saw and everybody knew that as far as trump was concerned some of them said man is a very close ally and a friend he shook his hand more than once they kept holding hands there was a great big grins and even a bit of laughing between the 2 and that is something that maybe speaks to to
3:13 am
what's trump has said from the beginning particularly the case of facilities there where the trump administration said it would not be forsaking billions of dollars worth of saudi investments in the u.s. economy for the sake of the life of one saudi journalist who wasn't even an american citizen as trump. said what's also noticeable was on the other side of president donald trump or texas president budget to run and all things that u.n. report came out about social kyoto one had said that he would be making a statement about that u.n. report and the need to hold those responsible for the murder of the drone. instrumental kootenai county said to be making the statements here in the still hasn't happened but there is very clearly a big divide between turkey's position reserve the saudi crown prince other neutral allies like the market streets now europe is undergoing a record breaking heat wave misleading to concerns of

further and to keep them to less than $1.00 degrees celsius above at the moment we've got about a one percent want to grease celsius temperature increase so you know we're getting there rapidly but be a singer today in europe or what we saw last month in india what we will probably see in many other parts of the world in the coming months of the year it shows that you know climate change it plays out through our daily weather heat waves extreme heat is the clearest signal from climate from climate change it's not the only one you know there's a direct link between climate change and precipitation or rainfall doesn't necessarily mean that we're going to get more rainfall but we're seeing more of it in very very very heavy episodes and we're seeing less of that when we went by and when we really need it all 6000 kilometers east at least 2 people have been killed
