u.s. pressure however this oil shipment was heading to syria which the e.u. definitely does have sanctions against iran being under pressure and the united states believes her and trying to twist the arm of of iraq of course the army and try to find the ways and means to bypass it and export their oil and the fact that they did not go through so as cairo and went around from africa around the good hope south of africa and coming back it may be just guessing it way to avoid being tracked iran has reacted angrily to the seizure summoning the british ambassador to the foreign ministry in tehran and stuck in the middle of all of this is the gray swan paul brennan al-jazeera also bar is our correspondent in tehran joins me now and also it seems the foreign ministry now reacting to this what are they saying. well so while they're saying that this is an
4:01 pm
act of piracy they are demanding the immediate release of this vessel and its contents they have foreign ministry spokesperson met with the british ambassador late last night and they are they provided documentation to the ambassador for him to take back to london the document documentation apparently pro proves that the iranians were acting illegally according to them and that the shipment was not illegal now the iranian position is that because these are sentient on syria they are they have not been indorsed by the united nations that is why they are not binding the iranians don't recognize them as a legitimate they are saying that this has been an act of piracy in international waters and it is an example of how the united states government is pressuring other european countries to put more strain on iran and its economic lifeline which is its oil supply and of course the door so you know we have this ongoing war of words
4:02 pm
and we now have iran blaming the british and the e.u. as you've said but the boarding of this boat seems to have happened sort of under a sort of nato scenario the u.s. operation sort of giving it an impression of an international parade of the war just by the u.s. or the e.u. alone i mean so one doesn't we want to know really how to iran will react as they wake up really and have more chance to analyze exactly the situation that they find themselves in as does the tanker with the oil in. yes well i think the iranians will see this as a unified front as a unified effort by western powers to put more pressure on iran because of its nuclear activities and the 9 fallout with the nuclear deal of 2015 and the united states withdrawing last year and putting wide range sanctions on iran the iranians will see this as another effort backed by the u.s. government pushed by the u.s.

4:16 pm
turkey did play a role by providing sophisticated weapons capabilities it doesn't want to lose its leverage in the province of idlib another means stakeholder iran however has been absent from the battlefield. iran's participation would provoke negative reactions from the western countries especially the united states in terms of kind of military action against syria or something like that and another reason is that iran does not want to prolong the sensitivities because they are working with each other in terms of venting do you reconcile actions against iraq. others say iran is sending a message to its russian allies who have not started israeli strikes against iranian targets in syria whatever the reason the syrian government is struggling and iran is proving its value in the war effort is not the only after front line i still remains a threat in central syria major problem. from such. even
4:17 pm
so we. all sort of basically every day i look at it it's. like a. syrian president bashar and i thought has restored control over more than 60 percent of the country but his army is exhausted overstretched and it seems too weak to recapture remaining rebel held areas without the help of iranian backed militias many of the fighters on the frontline fighting on behalf of the regime have been recruited forcefully from cound across syria they do not actually want to serve and many of them do not like the assad regime some of them live in fight against rebel ranks and therefore their morale their terminations to continue fighting is very low i said repeatedly says he will recall cricket libert the battle for the

4:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program i'm sorry you mention politics in india and the name gandhi would almost certainly come up the family has been at the center of public life for decades but the latest member of the gandhi dynasty is looking to step away from the spotlights role gandhi has resigned as leader of the main opposition party the indian national congress the 49 year old took responsibility for big losses in this year as a general election against the b j p of prime minister narendra modi gandhi called for the congress to make hard decisions to rebuild the party saying he does not support modi's vision for india he put in enormous effort norma safford and i believe that there was appointed which we all felt that he had got the pulse and we would be would be. we would see.
4:23 pm
coming back with the congress it didn't happen we all of history disheartened but it is sad that he feels so strongly about leaving we felt very strongly that he shouldn't leave so the congress party was founded in 885 and played a leading role in india's independence from britain in 1947 since then the party has formed most of india's governments the gandhi family has led the congress for 4 generations in 2014 the party suffered a major electoral defeat when prime minister narendra modi's b j p won 92 percent of the seats in the lower house role took over the party's leadership from his mother sonia in 2017 and has long sought to become prime minister just like his father ron mother and great grandfather but the congress suffered a 2nd major loss in this year's general election critics blame the defeat on corruption scandals and
4:24 pm
a lack of vision. let's bring in our guests who are joining us from new delhi we have a child the i he's a professor and dean of the gentile school of international affairs of india surat how many i am as a journalist and senior fellow at the hindu center for politics and public policy and rounding out our panel is a man and run off the current associate professor at the center for political studies joel harlow not really university welcome to you all to inside story in orange or if i may starts with you gandhi he had been talking of quitting since the results of the elections were announced in may party officials at the time urging him to stay but now he's officially resigned on twitter posting his resignation letter what do you make of it. this is you know this is a great of a system the moderates i don't. why do you feel no longer remain
4:25 pm
a great party and you know has been a certain kind of insight so there's this is an image younger people to get into politics and also help them in getting the right kind you should it's not something robin more straightforward. when they're quoting the people is you know being on the i'm in the focus of the camera and i'm sure this kind of action will generate a kind of sympathy towards him one of the country already in the last of the journey to get very better has been out there to get out really who they had and this accident really will reply that road is not nearly far or in the country and are being the president of the party but before he might end up i.v.s. now says that just like the oxford party that was to be has declined a visit later what if the guy knows what an office assistant of the border looks at
4:26 pm
if the government is doing and i find it very very interesting and parcel of video dealing agree with that assessment and that people now will be sympathizing with a whole gone gandhi in your opinion how significant is his resignation in the context of the state of indian politics right now. actually nina in the new speech had a lot of respect always for noonan ph d. and in the minutes he was here nonces that position be kind of. a big gun because you don't drop a distance and then you know he's in the cockpit and the same thing happens with sonia gandhi's or me as i am he has an opportunity to the brand that is still weak . and that's happened with gary condit and most of the congressman's because you give the longest space and that has a battery established that she is model to follow. and i think around the
4:27 pm
beazley something very similar in the sense that all the see them are 3 to. bike but he's moving a really it's not all for him that was a decent blocky to win but then to be skipper lee if you can give you an example of what happened with the b.g.p. to be given without a follow up with gagne or between 2004 is the forty's and at that time in fact last seen in a good group of sicily the can get a lot happens that's a that they may look at the if but if he can be good really bad and the from your as sexy as a bomb is a lot like well i'm going to seeing that the beatles and would do best cover from that defeat but it's really just did not sit down based works if only and if you had won me was that the general who gets the floppy to defeat to get to the defeat in 2009 had to be literally carried away meaning the peeking is screaming for them
4:28 pm
to find your pharmacy we haven't in the way of well national health and me going to do this or that issues i'm going to get up there for her to have to do some of this is so when you look at it still to get someone well into this is the reason it do is probably the 1st and that is the absence of meaning in. the talk about what this means for the party in just a moment but 1st through all your initial thoughts on the gandhi's resignation and so what this means for him. well daryn i must say that one intriguing east simply on paper because even in 2004 then in our ongoing these mother sonia gandhi court on court sacrifice the prime ministerial position she was didn't you know the public here behind the scenes and got them on we want to see who was a prime minister from 2004 to 2040 was pretty much taking his artist from sonia gandhi so the same i am afraid is going to repeat because even though round
4:29 pm
gandhi's family stepping aside he has to because you know they have suffered a major to mco and it would look like these who take skin if he is at least not according in his papers as the congress party proceeded but that that aside i fear that the culture of psycho fence easy and the percent of the country and the dynasty you know and the notion that anybody from the new family easy enough for us are to be a lot neater than be so pervasive in the congress party that i think he will continue to run it from behind the scenes and in fact if you will not be found the party in the last 70 years he and his mother if they can turn it around and give you know we need. them how can they do it outside the office so i think it shows the quandary that in on one hand they want to show that they had accountable and that this is not a kind of a head of the tree monarchy but on the other hand they are really struggling to
4:30 pm
really ever get the party to parties broken at the grassroots fell through on the idea well and his resignation letter the gandhi did say rebuilding the party requires hard to says ends and it is important for someone new to lead our party you don't agree that that is the parties want to follow that and i think this someone new is going to be a lie the stuff the new family demand on the family if they will never accept that a true outsider remember i go back in history in 1991 there was a prime minister got another similar out. well he was one of the few people who was not a cycle find of the gandhi family who had become the communist party president and believe me in 5 years the undermined you so much from within the party the brought the drag so i think it's impossible for them to let go of the finances of the party the treasury's the hands of the new families and they will continue to be you know what use is in this letter public to from behind the scenes ok i'm not recommending a drug that's not meant to us he may have quit its position or hold on to him but
4:31 pm
do you believe that he and his family are willing to let go of powers who on doesn't seem to think so i mean i think that you know even if the dynasty down is your objects when as remember there. was a new beginning part of it had to undergo as you're just seeing it i mean it was due to go back to. the very back of the people well that was because the people in the back of the car similarly i think one has had this kind of problems are very diverse already but this time i think it's at the bottom of this bybee the barking and therefore somebody is actually finding it is you can become the party sure if it works or work i don't think it matters i don't fancy i think. so how do you know it's not fair we are going to be remembered as the doer of their members we're good by the minute don't really mean to give up so there's something that people are
4:32 pm
good about i think that the need to have a baby independent now does this are what is going on in the party by it is that outgunned is not is going to be people the people going to masses will be invited by b.p. and the bite that younger sisters in the body has i guess this is right kind of thing you know he's deciding i think very big problems from that men are being really the case yes there's a bit of a go but it has to be big of a stretch i don't know about defenses if rb is getting the finances but they're not exactly abu idea but going to get that after being. outside the party out of the pile up why he may not have enough resources at this time so it now or is that we are testing that out for the party and whether you can reduce sources from the fever or not read their words if wright's vidia over to you and if you look at his
4:33 pm
statements in the letter he wrote it is a habit in india that the powerful cling to power no one sacrifices power but we will not defeat our opponents without sacrificing the desire for power and fighting a deeper ideological battle when he talks to people clinging to power who is he referring to here. well i think he's still it's a general statement that says the people do they worry there is no peace what we are seeing anyone that would use their position even as a defeated there's always the hope that extend they can come around and you can win . well before he means probably you've got to engender in the bob politicians and also we're going to watch the he's made it very clear that the spectre's you will get your responses from his own back in such groups on the basis that rock and noodles are trying to exert more pressure playing quickly and i think he thought
4:34 pm
that the. some kind of pressure or the other. gave a little speech that really does another significant lead is to follow through with all all do something drastic because if a lucky thing to say is that love the time to beings will follow this is that guys that's advice but i wish he hadn't used the word sacrifice and sacrifice sounds as if he's doing something that he threw the gun or it was a he's doing something lofty and great for the last transcend does this is a video throw the party interest her morrow or a visit really help in restructuring. you know the problem here is i mean i was going to eagle eye as the director of the 1st one is when in fact the king i was i said you know they ran for a politician in that position to resign and if that's with a response with me and say that you know i was just a little step away but but but the point i was going to make after that was this is
4:35 pm
they want to get the leaks if the one of the mean by thing that i'm one of their witnesses for advice but not the celebrity dangerous statement because when you say that was no real reason for a dry retreat that then look reading a fire is public think the members view that a new president they will and and round on these are the always open for consult the issue in the next life does he not become a world that does follow center like a great mother walls is for me a gun the last resort of all of the public prime minister manmohan singh and be called the sheet of the gun be sure to get them all because they did follow the same for the before didn't have this gentleman's does he. then one day i'll just tell you to quit all of the decision making while these guys the congress working committee and then actually go out and travel and connect with the that you have to cement with the people i don't know the ideological lessons to be stressing the judge because the. gap between the ear is considerable gap between the congress who
4:36 pm
believes in the give the irises and the honesty not now this industry has sure that the people puzzles me up quite removed by the i.r.s. as you do on and says that although you didn't bring people back to the congress's ideals of seeking to resume the goals of move move move some respect for minorities all of that how do you do that how do you. need to do it is like grabbing like it but by being connected to the people and scientists say that i will really and i will not. i mean i will be a rule for a. while ok let's put this to throw around what do you think this means that for the national congress what state does that leave it and. i am afraid that the congress party easing a commoner decline i don't see who could revive it in any major way they have
4:37 pm
suffered to you know significant blows in 2014 and again in 200-1000. videos right in the sense that the i'm able to find the right ideological pitch and the conviction of values and ideals with which they can bring back call or even you know do significantly better than last time so i think it's a long climb for them i have the pattern of the concert in mind is the people's party in pakistan. which is which is a similar dynastic farty that goes back a long way and it was a difficult only window he started being deceived will go and now it's a period shadow of this form which said if i'm going to the 3rd generation of been i want to talk and i fear that you know whether prahu least formally there are eastern running it. as a puppet master from behind the scenes he and his sister priyanka i'm afraid lack the basic leadership qualities that he just looking for so that if you look at from the electorate find a few the congress is not able to suffer like the kind of visionary leadership that
4:38 pm
they expect and that they're getting from an interim or the so i think it's a tall ask for them ground have been groomed been part of it's for nearly 15 years now and he i'm afraid to personally lacks the coherence and the competence that people bring expect in a national leader in a big country like india or man so i don't promote him just a moment ago surat how do you think the b j p is looking into this i think they'll be quite pleased that the congress isn't going to be setting in fact the joke is that you know they're going to miss their star campaign their hold on the east because he was a lie bit before them in. they headlamp believe as possible which is a kind of a sign for someone who's a fool and the public generally as what that humanity is that there is a high level of personal incompetence and inability of robin to even argue or speech are easy because the national language which makes sense so i think there are a lot of soft liabilities that he brings to the table so it's good in that in one
4:39 pm
way that he's stepping back may be good for democracy but it's to have a better opposition but from the public point of view when they look at did they think this is just a revolving door and sooner or later they would again place the guy on the some guy on the back of power maybe they want to find a place holder for a few years and then you know around dogs on a 49 he's going to join the site if nothing else at least yes and you know sooner or later he might come and do me again bring him back so this is the kind of our you know game had a gimmick as many people suspect and i'm afraid that the sincerity that one looks for you know national parties missy and that's why they're struggling so much my mentor and his resignation letter gandhi did criticize the ideology of the ruling b j p and he said that every living cell in my body resists their idea of india and then he went on to say that he will fight more he wants to take on an ideological fight he will engage in the aisle ideological fight with
4:40 pm
a b j p and are assessed with 10 times more vigor he said that he did during the last 10 years how do you see him doing that you know i think there's a crisis or. so when you years back. and you know you don't it was not led by others that is why i'm back here for what it's not what it is that i didn't want it and i got it happens. and we didn't want to have understand it and i think not only why don't we understand it is really what remember is this idea of having standards apply what it never knew what it might bite out of him so you. to be a center of power and the governor used to be so number 11 all of the students. what it was more connected with the b.p. has always been one of those and does on this then is the give the i'm sure there can be to the also the audience's chief is kind of egg my about the big if you like of so much that you can order it in the premise or not to do something with
4:41 pm

4:45 pm
into my devoted smaller parties or that always happens when major parties i do not non-compliant i don't see these sort of resignation of around on the as a single very significant that he will transform meet i would rather be skeptical and watch really that he's a new generation that he was just going to be all they can bring in more can be do the leaders who don't put into the matchup tonight into more the the future but at the present our current prime minister since most of the aspirations of the people of the year he has not mobilized institutions i don't think even the view that easy to sions have adapted to a very very kind is mighty and magnetic center and they know that the pulse of the public easement more the soul of this i don't know if you did it with these many belated rather by some of the people have spoken in favor of all the and around on the id guys a lot of catching up to do on of the congress party off the road on the and off to

4:54 pm
destination is claimed to be the bally ass refinery in syria but under cover of darkness a contingent of 30 royal marines under the direction of the role gibraltar police boarded the ship using a wildcat helicopter and rigid inflatables thrown into it eleanor's. naturally we were aware of the operation police patrols bodies were guarding the area but we're studying the circumstances in which it happened he was the man by the united states to an article kingdom we're looking into how it affects our sovereignty because it happened in what we understand a spanish waters the u.s. is applying what it calls maximum pressure on iran to try to force a renegotiation of the 2050 nuclear to european union those trying hard to support iran's economy against that u.s. pressure however this oil shipment was heading to syria which the e.u. definitely does have sanctions against iran being under pressure and the united states believes are and trying to use that are more of iraq of course the army and
4:55 pm
try to find a way that means to bypass it and export their oil and the fact that they did not go through so as cut oil and went around from africa around. the good hope south of africa coming back it may be i'm just guessing it way to avoid being tracked iran has reacted angrily to the seizure summoning the british ambassador to the foreign ministry in tehran and stuck in the middle of all of this is the grace want paul brennan al-jazeera. is a correspondent for some from tehran the foreign ministry of the city very angry as a state run in general i mean what are they saying. well so while the foreign ministry spokesperson our post was that he has called this move destructive and after officials met with the british ambassador here in tehran late thursday evening they said that they provided documentation about this ship's legal
4:56 pm
cargo and movements and that they are demanding the british government release this ship and its contents they say it's a rainy and property and they want it back the foreign minister has said that they will do everything within their power and when it comes to the political and legal values they will do everything to try and get this vessel back they're saying that this is a hostile move and the british government is acting by pressure from pressure of the united states government here saying that they are only exasperating the current tensions in this region and they're not helping the situation at all and of course the operation. to god you might say with the nato sort of title underneath it yet while the e.u. the british are being blamed iran obviously has now got to decide in one way or another how it deals with these very different factions these international factions who the all have their own interests and all have their own pressures that
4:57 pm
they're putting on. yes certainly the iranians are saying that all the while the european countries have said they're with us into rough and so the 2050 uclear freeman and the united states sanctions on iran is not something the europeans want to force they are trying to be on the side of the iranians trying cooperate and trying to revive the country's economy but the iranians are saying listen we are seeing something different you're saying one thing but you're doing something else your actions are very different than your words and this is something we've heard over and over again over the past few weeks they are saying there cannot be trust that the europeans because the american government is bullying them they're forcing them to put more pressure on iran's economy to try and isolate them further to force iran to go back to the negotiating table to renegotiate the 2015 nuclear deal and that is something the iranians will never do they said they it's not up for discussion that the they will not be forced

back into the negotiating table by any western power for them but also we'll leave it there thank you. student protesters in hong kong say they won't talk with the government unless the public leaders of the city's largest student unions are responding to chief executive kerry lamb's offer to meet in private a small number of demonstrators runs to vandalize the logistics council building on monday hundreds of thousands of largely peaceful protesters have been calling for to scrap a controversial bill that would allow extradition to mainland china. she actually has plenty of opportunities to communicate with the general public in the whole june but she did not and then she suddenly found to student union and communication and but show no sincerity and so that we thing that she has. is just

5:00 pm
government not only themselves but also many other sectors of society what's more they want that to be held in public all part of their campaign of building on the impetus of these mass demonstrations to keep this issue very much in the public domain the concern for the government is that they want to try to defuse this situation by having a public debate that may turn into a rowdy shouting match between student groups and government officials they simply make matters worse well still ahead here on al-jazeera a march to malawi's parliament protests get louder over the election result. and killing without fear of punishment venezuela's government is accused of a brutal crackdown on its opponents those stories after the break.
