maybe some cracks or even more fissures in that relationship absolutely of course everything that washington does and other european capitals and elsewhere depends on what happens in egypt and the fissures within egypt regime access certain processors may have had to have here and also certain you know social media comments by people close to the egyptian regime such as semi and that that all is interesting given that you know prior to this week there seemed to be a great deal of unanimity in egypt in the elites in favor of sisi that seems to be cracking and that of course affects things here in washington d.c. i find it very interesting that the human rights organizations are calling for careful treatment of these protesters without even mentioning the 10s of thousands currently in jail including u.s. citizens and journalists and others they're focused on this particular group and that indicates to me that both the human rights organizations and the parts of the
government that observe egypt will be paying special attention to the $170.00 that have been arrested any further arrests and the treatment of all these individuals separately from the 10s of thousands already in detention and that could be a cause of friction in the coming months mike pump a.o. was in egypt earlier a few months ago and with there were talks about more cooperation in the fight against terrorism given that and then also given that it's recognized i would believe that it is not a democracy in any way particularly with calling him has favorite dictator do you think the u.s. just need egypt egyptian corporation and does need sisi loyalty . i don't think the us particularly need sisi himself i think eventually he could well be ousted by gyptian military.
backers of him when he becomes more of. a liability than a plus for the regime we're not there yet but i think the us doesn't even fully trust sisi when it comes to fighting terrorism and the best evidence for that is the way in which lots of parts of the us government criticize the way c.c. uses weapons in the sinai conflict and doesn't allow american advisers in american journalists to go into the sinai to see how that war is being prosecuted and that's connected to all of these other issues and so the question is you know worldwide but also in the u.s. it's a jewish unship and just for egypt you know what are you doing to attenuate terrorism and what might be making it worse and in the sinai in particular the antiterrorism strategies seem to at times make things worse and that of course doesn't bode well for the any trust from washington in c.c.
in terms of counterterrorism. and as always thank you for your time. in other news saudi arabia says it will wait until it finishes investigating last week's drone strikes on 2 of its oil facilities before taking action saudi's minister of state for foreign affairs baer believes un investigators will confirm iran was behind the strikes a charge that a terror on denies has rejected the claim by yemen's who both that they carried out the strikes. on the bush team and it was to my duty mr leader to be able the international community has a huge responsibility to put into runs aggressive and deliberate policies and practices that undermine the region if not the whole world these acts are in violation of the international laws and international customs must prove its not a barbarian country is a state if so it should respect the sovereignty of other states frame from supporting terrorism in refrain from exporting weapons to terrorist militias in the
region that are used against civilians and outside big has more on the reaction from terror on. repeated the allegations accusing iran of behind being behind those attacks accusing iran of funding terrorist organizations but also they appealing to the international community and trying to get opposition to iran the language is very much that iran has broken international law that this attack on iran's actions could affect oil supplies to the rest of the world and they're trying to tell the world that they need to get on board with what the united states and saudi arabia want to send more sanctions more pressure on iran from the iranian perspective they will see this as. still able to prove where those drones and missiles came from so that the investigation is still ongoing and they would release those findings but the united states has put sanctions further sanctions on iran and iran central bank now the foreign minister zarif has respond to that he said that this shows the desperation because of the maximum pressure campaign isn't
working for the united states he also said that they are people that fear that the united states will return to negotiations and they want to drag the united states into a war so from iran prospect if they're watching this this briefing and it's still very much the same accusations leveled against iran but with very little evidence at this point in time. well the u.s. is sending more troops to saudi arabia to boost defenses against what it calls iranian aggression and as also i just mentioned new u.s. sanctions are being imposed on iran a move that the foreign minister job zarif has described desperate times blank america's he says how she is no different than sanctioning the central bank shows us desperation more than anything else because americans have imposed whatever sanctions they could against iran what they are doing right now is to sanction the central bank that has already been sanctioned but under a different title but of course there are measures shows there endeavor to block
iran's international commerce to block food and medicine from reaching the people of iraq. and there's plenty more still ahead this news hour including. more tear gas and water cannon hong kong's protests show no signs of slowing down. being the change she wanted to see uganda's climate is inspiring a continent. and star another stole the show for you've been just peter will have much more of that actually coming up in sport. one day after leading the biggest climate protest in history young activists have taken their calls for action to the united nations the youth climate summit was open by teenager or teenage campaigner gratitude berg who inspired friday's demonstrations our diplomatic editor james bass reports from the united nations
