links to the only group. who were of most powerful people in the white house is out of a job u.s. president donald trump has fired his national security adviser over disagreements about foreign policy john bolton took a hard line view on several countries that the u.s. has fraught relations with like iran russia and north korea his sacking from his reports of serious divisions within the president's cabinet it was his decision to invite the taliban to the u.s. for peace talks well those have now been canceled mike hanna has more. we think the sanctions are biting john bolton was the 3rd national security adviser pointed to by president trump since taking office and he's the 3rd to resign after much speculation of imminent firing bolton brought to the white house decades of
10:02 pm
experience in foreign policy and a hawkish disposition that had never wavered. he served as ambassador to the united nations under george w. bush from 2005 to 2006 and use that position to continue to justify the u.s. invasion of iraq that he had relentlessly advocated a few years before madam president he returned to the un alongside president trump as national security adviser during the general assembly session last year and once again made his presence felt we've imposed very stringent sanctions on iran more are coming. and what we expect from iran is massive changes in their behavior around here certain national security control of the u.s. mission at the u.n. effectively downgrading the role played by ambassador nikki haley who resigned within months of his appointment what many diplomats say is that it's very hard to get clear decisions out of the u.s. mission to the u.n.
10:03 pm
at present and that is probably because bolton and other members of the administration are fighting over what policy lines to take for the secretary so good thing while the administration appeared united in its america 1st policy some differences began to emerge particularly with regard to north korea chairman kim asked for this meeting president trump agreed with bolton adopted that take a toll leave it attitude to negotiations leading to north korean complaints that he was undermining the policy of dialogue at the catered by both president trump and secretary of state mike pompei or the iranian regime has systematically pursued a policy of hostility toward the united states then the apparent moment of real division as he'd done in years past a national security adviser began to press for active regime change in iran. characterizing the shuttle deployment of the u.s.b. to the region as in his words a clear and unmistakable message to the iranian regime but said odds with the white
10:04 pm
house policy in which the focus was morning exerting economic pressure through sanctions. after weeks of discussion it was confirmed that additional troops would be sent to the region but numbering hundreds rather than the 10s of thousands had bunked and was believed to be pressing for president trump denied there was friction within his cabinet i think a stake is ok now what i do that absolutely but we have got plans for that hopefully we're not going to have to plan for that and if we did that would send a hell of a lot more troops and that the final straw perhaps a sardonic comment by a principal adviser to the iranian president who wrote in a tweet at real donald trump you want to the better deal with iran looks like you're going to get a war instead that's what happens when you listen to the mr bush good luck in 2020 john bolton is now on his way out his smith star intact his dream of regime change
10:05 pm
shattered mike hanna al-jazeera washington. joins us live now white house so how did we get to this point with bolton. while he was annoyed choice in the 1st place because his worldview certainly doesn't coincide with donald trump's isolationist american foreign policy he spoke in the past about how he would like to launch a military attack against north korea how he believes there should be military intervention and invasion of iran and regime change he was dead set against the idea of pulling u.s. troops out of syria something that donald trump was keen on insanity and had no intentions of getting involved in any sort of discussions with the iranians the latest follow it was over afghanistan donald trump came up with this idea of bringing the taliban 5 and the afghan president to camp david and finalizing a peace deal there john bolton was very much against that idea particularly in the wake of 911 excuse me and so the following i guess was almost
10:06 pm
inevitable it was brutal though the way that the white house did this for donald trump to soften sugarcoats these tweets to see his services were no longer required this essentially putting his foot to john bull john bolton's back as he goes out the door john bolton noise suggesting. paul in d.c. this time of year is terrible. suggesting that he resigned rather than was fired what is true is that there were a number of people in the administration who didn't agree with john bolton's position on a number of things one of them was mike pompey or an america's top diplomat certainly wasn't diplomatic when asked about that at a news briefing a short time ago. we all give our can defend if there were many times in bass or both and i disagree that's to be sure but that's true for lots and lots of people who with whom i interact much my mission set is always to make sure as i run the
10:07 pm
department of state is to deliver america's diplomacy and to work with the team whether it's a treasury or the president's staff to make sure we get good outcomes and i don't i don't i know everyone's talked about this for an awfully long time there were definitely places that best and i told them i had different views about how we should proceed so i will bolton's departure have much of an impact really on u.s. foreign policy on iran and afghanistan also. well i'll be easy to sit back and think from a distance the national security advisor that's not much of a big deal it's not a senate confirmed position it's not really a member of the cabinet but it is actually a very big deal and some presidents can look at the national security adviser to advise on policy others can look at the national security advisor just to pull together all the information and give it to them but john bolton and the way that donald trump works is the white house this is an important position and it could lead to a change in certain things certainly john bolton is a see dead set against pulling u.s. troops out of syria donald trump is very keen to reduce american footprint around
10:08 pm
the place so therefore that might happen sooner than we think pulling it down the numbers in afghanistan certainly john bolton was not overly keen on that idea donald trump very much wants to do that before 2020 and here could be the big one john bolton absolutely against any idea of sitting down and talking to the iranians well that me to change now we got a glimpse of that in the briefing in the white house press room just an hour or so ago john bolton was meant to be at that briefing along with steve minutes and the treasury secretary and the secretary of state obviously suddenly his invitation was revoked but steve says look the door is open to discussions with the iranians and there could well be a meeting between donald trump and the iranian president at the united nations general assembly which is in new york very soon indeed so that could no happen john bolton very much the guy pushing against the door didn't want that to happen he's
10:09 pm
no way that borders open that may well happen so there is going to be a change in american policy even of john bolton is no longer in the white house thank you very much indeed. the arab league has a plan by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to annex parts of the occupied west bank will undermine the israeli palestinian peace process as you know who said he would annex the jordan valley if he wins next week's general election. bus of the united slim i'm asking you to give me the mandate to extend israeli law to all the settlements out of respect for president trump i'm waiting to do this in maximum coordination with his administration but there is one place where the diplomatic circumstances are ripe to do this very soon if i'm elected i commit to the next the jordan valley and north of the debt sea it is our eastern border our defense wall. until now who said the company station's so-called middle east peace
10:10 pm
plan would provide the stark opportunity place standing israeli sovereignty over the occupied west bank and other areas where a force that has more from west jerusalem. if benjamin netanyahu were to make good on this pledge to annex a huge part of the occupied west bank the jordan valley and the northern shores of the dead sea some 30 percent or so of the territory of the occupied west bank it would be an enormous deal it would be a real up setting of the entire predicate of how a settlement between the israelis and the palestinians could be reached in the future the whole idea of a 2 state solution depends on the possibility of a viable palestinian state and by saying that israel would merely unilaterally annex such a huge part of that territory leaving the city of jericho as an isolated island within that israeli annexed area that would explode the idea of such a state indeed we're getting that message from senior palestinian politicians kind

of ashrawi a senior member of the p.l.o. saying that this is being done in concert with the trumpet ministration to eradicate any hopes of a 2 state solution saberi account the secretary general of the p.l.o. saying that it buries any chances of peace between israelis and the palestinians at the u.n. secretary general a spokesman saying that it would devastate any hopes of reviving negotiations between israel and the palestinians however this is all a big if if it were to happen because this was made by netanyahu not as prime minister the prime minister's office made that clear it was made by him as leader of likud in the last week of a bitterly fought election campaign where he's desperately trying to get as many right wing votes for his ruling party as possible he said that this would happen with him as prime minister if they gave him the is really good as gave him the mandate to do so he was the man. to make the most of this historic opportunity not
10:12 pm
his political opponents and he said that it would be a case of waiting for the trump peace plan to come out and then making this part of that in the immediate period after the election he has made similar pledges about an exciting parts or extending israeli sovereignty to parts of the west bank the occupied west bank in the past and has then result from really making that concrete so there are all sorts of caveats all sorts of question marks that hang over this it was part of his election it was electioneering campaign in these final days of the election campaign but obviously if it were to go ahead it would cause huge ructions and has been bitterly and vehemently opposed already by both the palestinian leadership and members of the international community. at least 31 pilgrims have been killed in one of the most sacred sites in shia islam

10:24 pm
a games like this but in recent months in so seeing the chinese i don't know has become a tactic a strategy of these protests is because they're not just fans of football they're also fans of new democracy and as we found out before the game this is an issue which is also dividing them go tell me when you leave when you sing the chinese national anthem tonight why live by what i want to say it is not my country is oh. so you won't know. about you know i don't say much a national i'm a hometown of i forgot that he our cities are ice not suitable for me oh i was told you already didn't want to have been the only nice national anthem is now playing inside the stadium and people both inside and outside of the stadium booing very loudly this is why the hong kong government is under pressure to
