4:14 am
this would be in order to get all the member states to try to take in more of the asylum seekers that have landed especially in malta and italy there has been a great deal of pushback from countries such as poland and hungary who refused to do so and certainly the outer migration policies have a departing ballot box there is also another solution and off the set you have taken in a fire from france and from germany they said they would be prepared to take 25 percent of any asylum seekers who lived in italy would also be prepared to take 10 percent but that is they say because they've received tens of thousands. nevertheless trying to persuade other member states to take in more people will certainly be a challenge and also will no doubt rile up the. voices in other countries

4:21 am
of us working to a verse a climate catastrophe that's on the story do stay with us. young people are in the vanguard of efforts to avoid a climate catastrophe as global temperatures rise but how is their activism different from the green movements of the past and how they compel wealth leaders to act welcome to the strain i'm femi oke i'm really could be in the final show of our special series tied to the covering climate now initiative we meet youth activists bringing fresh energy to the fight against climate change join the
4:22 am
conversation through twitter and you tube. the united nations says that we have just 11 years left to stop global heating rising to the point where millions of people will die and it's millennialism members of generations who are demanding urgent climate action to safeguard their future on friday hundreds of thousands of people and cities across the world started it weeklong global climate strike with young people at the forefront of the demonstrations and the run up to today's when climate summit activists on saturday expressed their hopes their concerns and solutions at the u.n. headquarters in new york 1st saw alone young people have been asking for a seat at the decision making to imagine the power of the movement you have created today the leader asking for a seat at your table. our online community has also weighed in on the urgency of
4:23 am
the battle against climate change a look. claiming to be close. and ready to go to take a chance to stand up to something to actually save the. world or not make lemonade because of the political establishment the course of the story the scientific reality the climate right the ari. she a bestie to is a core committee leader at friday's for future and international movement of school students fighting climate change she is in new york. is a photographer conservationist and climate activists in new delhi he is also involved with the writings for future movement as. its founder of the allotment peaceful n.t.'s which aims to raise awareness of climate change impacts in afghanistan. and going to school with climate warriors still welcome to the street
4:24 am
. thank you so much excited to have this conversation with all of you and with their online communities i want to start online which is where so much of this organizing has started with a tweet that you sent not too long ago just a few days my home delhi you wrote is set to join indian cities to have no ground water by 2020 that means i am going to be stripped of our water resources and one $120.00 days including a video there it's a topic that we've covered here on the stream but for you this is personal i'm on when was it that you knew you were a climate activists when that hit home for you. i think india is this dire ostland that has such an amazing green covered biodiversity and even the people here but just looking at the fact of how my own city new delhi is the most polluted city in the world and whole our ground water was running short and heat
4:25 am
waves are striking our city and the re ice from my own i could see the wildlife in my city dwindling and rushing rapidly that's when it really struck me that if i don't take action right now if i don't say that this is enough and children need a stake in the decisions that directly impacted affect the future i realize that the top 4 to me sitting at home and not doing anything about this because this is a matter of our survival and really you know could a lot of people the climate change might be high particular situation that is taking place in some far off shortly but for me as you said it hit home and it's a reality for a lot of people living or ga it was a reality for you you are literally a climate change migrant can you tell i wouldn't the story that meant that you had to leave mexico as i now live in the united states. so i was born and raised in mexico i lived there till i was 13 years old and in 2015 my talents suffered from
4:26 am
heavy rainfall that we salted in flooding from the majority of my town and that was the 1st time in which i encountered a climate crisis when i moved to new york city i saw the effect that here in sandy had had in the community and that's when i realized that the climate crisis follows it's something that is that i think everyone everywhere but is that it is affecting my generalized communities and communities of color the mothers and so i couldn't so just sit down and not do anything i thought i'm going to strike or just i'm going to strike because there is no other thing to do she away kind of activists you've got activists get together what do you talk about. we talk about when our next trick is going to be when the numerically planted in strategy ok all right she ask question. i want to ask you what is prior to
4:27 am
you to be a climate activist arm so you could you repeat the question to say yes why did it was the thing that led you to be a climate activists all of the why were there 2 ism started by can 200-1000 when the flats like we have a flood to be rich a particle bender starman hundreds of them we were back we didn't look back to them 35 lives were lost but also when i went back home this summer and i really feel. scientifically there there were saying that's you know 6 person. didn't have to go to was riser but to definitely i could feel much more than that and that was that the time that i really wanted to to stand in and to do something. so i hear the urgency of why you decided to get involved in your voice i want to share the perspective of someone else very similarly honey for says i want on
4:28 am
climate strength because as it is the climate change issue is a very serious predicament and it feels like it has been taken lightly while in reality our future is at stake and then like you talking about those high temperatures climate change has impacted our communities through the burial temperatures unpredictable rainfall patterns making it hard for agricultural productivity drying water sources and increased vulnerability i have i want to stay with you with this tweet because you were invited to come to the u.s. for this 1st ever global youth climate summit but you weren't allowed what happened . so lucidly. unfortunately. the u.s. embassy in bangkok rejected. non-immigrant with. drugs so unfortunately i couldn't. go to new york to working with. what is
4:29 am
a big interview in your climate summit so you're watching the climate summit the kind of action summit from a distance let me show you something here on my laptop earlier on this morning the swedish peace activists got to to burke. as she was heading to the united nations is i'm on my way to the u.n. today i'm speaking in the general assembly at the time action summit this is such a crucial day world leaders are gathering at the un in new york to decide on after each of the eyes of the world will be upon them this is i wonder if she's already thinking about what she's about to say because what she said made the news here's a recap this is all wrong. i shouldn't be up here. i should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. yet you will come to us young people for hope how dare you you have stolen my
4:30 am
dreams my childhood with your empty words and yet i'm one of the trucks once people are suffering people are dying entire systems are collapsing we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and what you can talk about is money and fame or tales of the time of economic growth how did you. 6 actually unlike many of us you actually know quite a lot we show you something a little through our audience something here this is from your 2 cents and i think i love the way that you are very down to earth here you got an o. m.g. on your head and o. m.g. on gretta said i think that's what most people would do you received to actually came to new york with the media conference you've been there with in the last couple of wakes so when she said that at the u.n.
4:31 am
earlier on today your thoughts were what. i was actually in the room as well and went to that that i saw that for her it's not about. being activated and i was being out there and i was making our voices heard or heard news about our interests and our lives and i was not being heard at the level that we should be it is about with fines not being acted on it is about our leaders not doing enough but doing too much talking and not enough action so like they were part of what that was we are watching you and. and you know because we are and i was there for most of the day ended on our list somebody and i was listening to every single waiter one up there and i know that all of them call this crisis any marriage but i don't know what they're going to do to take action and so we are going to be here and we're not going to strike you know we're not going to stop. because our work right now is the right way and it's not the right. i want to share
4:32 am
a video coming from someone who thinks very similarly and has that same passion in their voice this is petros is a climate activist in athens greece and here's what he told the stream i got involved with friends for a future because i believe that climate change that is so we need to change the little things are we believe they will be seen or work or even how education works but this is all for the sake of preserving the home. because the earth is not something that we get from the oldest it is something that we borrow from them from their you generations and these you know how. to preserve years and to read james so you could hear there he says this is something that we've done from our elders i want to dip into a little bit of a debate that's happening online between people who say this is the older generations who have left us but this mass and others saying that's not quite fair so have a listen to this or look at this tweet this is use climate activist who says i'm
4:33 am
calling on the older generation to step up their game toward saving humanity and the planet in times of flooding more bridges and draining system should be built more tree planting this should be encouraged now is the time on the other hand we got this tweet from matthew who says this very conversation is creating an us versus them topic this is part of the problem and it's a major factor in this mess so i don't get that to you an us versus them the older generation versus the younger generation where do you fall in that debate. you see i think the citizens that we have now especially the young people are to create extent and degree and run mentally conscious and politically of what needs to be done to call up the biodiversity crisis and climate crisis that we're facing right now i do not think that the us was as them. that it is so big a crucial that it can undermine the entire topic which is climate change which will
4:34 am
impact all of us equally probably impact the marginalised and disadvantaged communities 1st but in the long run it's going to impact all of us but definitely you see just the fact that you have the kids on the panel here asking the leaders for the end of the planet and calling themselves you would activists that shouldn't be a dom and this shouldn't be a point that we have to teach and that we have to come to because i mean you have children out in the streets asking for the right to a safe future and it is not our responsibility to try that owns of the generation which was so what so long before probably before i was even born so i think that as my stance and my view on this there's a sense of leadership that is coming from the you've climate movement where adults are feeling like they need to now actually say 80 they are acting allen is that
4:35 am
will power because you don't se have a power to vote you don't have political power but it is that your power to actually make a guilt an older generation. well that's one of the things i want to tell mention about older than the nation or whether they were in the role in making this massive problem a catastrophe for us or not well but they are not exactly the ones that are in our cars so we are most of the high school students or not in a position. to mention. or something like that but the problem that we are facing there the older generation also experience the problem with. because now we look at the the the the the the problems caused by because of the climate change at the moment. not to could just consider the future that the older a generation younger generation 3000000 the nation or we are all equally affected
4:36 am
and i think we are just to blame them but we do require that we do require them to stand with us and to listen to us we don't want them to be in front. to be like gainsaid aligned with the. whole problem just blaming them it's what they we want and help right and i think our lives here on you tube agree with you so let's just rights and life saying i found gratis speech extremely powerful it brought me to tears as i know she is right we want to conveniences of life at the expense of our climate someone right under her comment there says this is inking production and says honestly i believe it's time for young people to take action most of us young people don't pay attention to what's going on around us even within young people it's time to take action so she gave you see these comments that people are writing here and they're watching you all speak and this conversation that we're
4:37 am
having pop to us about the challenge in bringing other people to this site whether they're young or an older generation. i think that a big part of why a lot of people are not taking action is because they're in the sense of touch from information and so i think that one of the most important things to address this is to bring personal storytelling into the mix when you bring personal storytelling with data people are 22 times more likely to remember something and one link one sibling story telling changed and narrative and when you change the narrative me change the culture and we need what we need is a culture in which we take care of the earth because that is our lifestyle just fact that the environment sorry the fact that the environmental movement is a movement should be a agency should be part of who we are i love that you use data to tell us about
4:38 am
storytelling and data so if our audience is that if we're going to use that for our audience what story would you tell our audience that make them 22 percent more likely to pay attention to this conversation shii go ahead i would tell them you know my cow was affected by the climate crisis and it did not have the infrastructure to drain water or deeper structure to serve to come out of it. better than what it was before and so that really shows you how long and communities and communities of color are most affected in the wrong 70 percent of adults are asked and in lower manhattan that is not the case and still get back that we have environmental racism and environmental structural racism mixed into the climate crisis is one of the reasons why we have to take action because this is about the unjustice of the climate crisis and what to come and we would have been until we young people are bringing those voices to light and we are saying enough
4:39 am
is enough of lack of a presentation. i wanted to add the point with the 1st story telling is that last summer for 2 nights i didn't have a relaxing sleep because of the $45.00 degrees of temperature which is which not which is not the way i used to be or currently right now in the pocket which used to be known for the having a really fresh air quality now i can't leave because of the indonesian fires at the moment. i would like to mention i would want to see that i can one thing that region needs really need to do is go to these villages and places that communities that disadvantaged are less the present that are really being affected by climate change and putting their stories to the forefront because at the end i mean we can imagine and think about what is happening to them but again the fact is that for us it's a situation become a hot and for people it's a reality on
4:40 am
a daily basis and how they are suffering and how their wages are being ignored by an inefficient policy structure that in my view even a conservation policies are supporting industrial objectives at that environment those standards i'm not in bringing the stories is really important i'm on i'm so glad you said that because we have a video comment of someone saying something very similar her name is faith ward she's not going to organizer with a group called 0 hour and she's here in the us in ohio and she talks about the most marginalized communities how to listen. i wrote that called 0 hour i think for myself and a lot of people on our team we understand that the environmental movement has to move beyond simple calls for conservation when a climate crisis and as we try to fix it we also have the chance of trying to lead to strictly marginalized communities buchan brown communities indigenous communities those that have always been left behind the society tries to move forward with this crisis we have the opportunity to bring justice to them and try
4:41 am
to fix things and fix the system has always loved people behind that's why we're. so our audience couldn't see but all throughout that comment as it was playing a mind was bigger asli nodding his head in agreement i'm assuming i'm on what are you thinking. i completely agree i think this is a chance to get those communities that haven't had a c. in policymaking. may not solve the major what banks a chance at getting an equitable choice and chance at the future because you see i think it least in my country the climate crisis has resident notions of racism colonialism slavery and discrimination showing up as you know she has said that you have these people who are living in such places and just because they're disadvantaged community they have been given less than africans even though they're facing the brunt of other mistakes so i think it's really important if you look at my country in the out once colonialism came here things like hunting was made
4:42 am
illegal and large patches of forests were opened up to things like watching oil deforestation and slavery into suit where needed dance would be pleased by in the ways of species so it's really important to give these people away because it's going to affect everyone equally and you need climate justice it's not only about climate action it's about climate justice at the same time making connections for so many issues that all connect up to how the climate is changing and i want to show you something and i'll guess have already seen this in terms of the the attention that young activists are getting around the world we're going to go to brussels and rio and bangkok just a little sliver of what it was like on september the 20th have a look i'm here today because i feel like i am betrayed or abandoned by my governments i am disappointed that they won't accept

4:52 am
a standing ovation and because of her efforts in the past year or so world leader after world leader has been coming to the podium giving a brief set of remarks about what his or her country is trying to do to address the problem of clear of climate change of worsening climate change and each of these leaders is addressing her efforts and the efforts of young people from around the world to highlight the problem to highlight the urgency and essentially saying yes we had not been doing enough we have not been acting enough we hear you we're listening to you we're trying to do better here's what we're saying that we're going to try to accomplish so rather than dismissing her comments people are welcoming grettir turn birth as a real low player in the climate change debate as someone who is going to be a catalyst in finding a solution to climate change they're not dismissing her as just another teenager.
4:53 am
than not but then it also begs the question how much impact it's having always seen we've just seen this historic movement of millions galvanized around the world but have we seen much of a shift in terms of all of climate commitments from from member countries. well what you have seen are some countries coming to the podium and saying that they're looking for a concrete ways to move away from using fossil fuels trying to promote the widespread usage of renewables in order to. power their societies looking at ways of providing finance in a way that does not lead to a negative impact on the environment trying to build bridges with other countries with within countries trying to build bridges between communities to find a way for example of putting together a more sustainable agricultural economy rather than one that relies on clear
4:54 am
cutting forests in order for ranchers and for farmers to feed their animals and to grow their crops there's a very vigorous discussion happening here at the united nations about the way forward of course what really matters now is whether political leaders are going to take their commitments which they have now made public here at the united nations and actually use their political capital to try to make these things come true that's always the toughest part of these sorts of movements but certainly given that there is so much concern among people who say between the ages of 13 and 25 and given that they're the ones who are moving from their parents' homes into the 1st wrongs of trying to run society there is a question of whether this momentum is in fact coming from the grass roots thank you very much from the united nations at roslyn jordan following developments there

5:11 am
certainly seem to be optimistic that they would present those plans on the 8th of october at another interior minister's meeting in luxembourg now the challenge for this would be in order to get all the member states to try and take in more of the asylum seekers that have landed especially in malta and italy there has been a great deal of pushback from countries such as poland and hungary who refused to do so and certainly the migration policies have played a part in that box there is also another solution and off the set we have taken in ohio quotes are from france and from germany they said they would be prepared to take 25 percent of any asylum seekers who landed here would also be prepared to take 10 percent but that is they say because they've received tens of thousands of people on their nevertheless trying to persuade other member states to take in more

coleman isn't only the voters find his positional bricks it confused it's that throughout his entire political career he sets himself up as a conviction politician prepared to go out on a limb to try to break the mold of traditional politics so much ambiguity of a bricks it seems to fly in the face of his own idea of himself activists forced emotion calling for the party to unequivocally support staying in the european union there's this idea that somehow we're going to wait until after the election attend that we've got no position now and then that sort of but will definitely get paid remain the future never be except that we're going to get paid for many future i'm sorry but i don't think that treating voters like the idiots is a vote so couldn't read. i read 6 the leadership on the conference delegates such as the support for kolb in that speaker after speaker them to vote for his position which is not to decide on the bricks and policy until after he becomes prime minister they won and then separately the pro e.u.

5:49 am
on saudi oil facilities amid confusion of a stance on the nuclear deal also. if you will come to us young people for hope. how dare you. writes world leaders at the united nations climate summit. at least 40 civilians are killed at a wedding party in afghanistan by what's believed to be a u.s. airstrike. on the calls from collapses at a school in kenya's capital killing 7 children and injuring dozens more. and i'm we are hearty and doha with all of your sports russia's place at the summer olympics is in doubt amid a new doping controversy and the country is set to miss its 2nd straight world athletics championships as well i'll have that and more for you later this hour.
5:50 am
we begin with a breaking news story this hour the u.k. france and germany are blaming iran for attacks on saudi oil facilities earlier this month the european leaders have held talks at the sidelines of the un general assembly in new york they have released a joint statement calling on terror on to agree to negotiations on its nuclear and missile programs as well as regional security issues meanwhile a u.k. government spokesman is insisting the prime minister supports the iran nuclear deal this off to boris johnson suggested it was time for a new agreement earlier on. one day he said it was time to move forward in negotiate a new accord but the government spokesman said johnson still supports the pact and iran needs to start complying with the tons of the deal the 2015 agreement has been rather unraveling since the united states withdrew from it and imposed sanctions u.s. president donald trump was quick to say he supported johnson's earlier call for
5:51 am
a new deal but one of the biggest things is the fact that the the agreement is going to expire a very short number of years and what kind of a deal is it would do it would countries you have to go long term so i respect boris a lot i am not at all surprised that he was the 1st one to come out and say that. so let's get more on this then from our diplomatic editor james bays he's at the united nations and so the president trying from his clip there seems to feel like he's found a friend in boris johnson and perhaps a new iran deal is on the way. well really complete confusion here at the united nations about what the u.k. position is right now is the u.k. about to bricks it out of the iran nuclear deal because of course the us pulled out of that deal last year but all the other signatures have stayed strong to the deal and the u.k. has consistently said it supports the iran nuclear deal now you have boris johnson in a u.k. t.v.
5:52 am
interview carried out in new york saying that it needs renegotiating and they need to look at everything in a new deal well the u.k. has always made the point in the past that nuclear deal should be separate kept separate and everything else should be negotiated separately so again that looks like a change in policy i can tell you the word is that the u.k. prime minister has done another interview in which he said similar things saying that iran deal is a bad deal and president trump is the only person who could renegotiate a new good deal and then to add to the confusion even though president trump has reacted to all of those comments the u.k. foreign office has put out a statement saying that the u.k. still stands by the iran nuclear deal so real confusion at a time of real tension as you say we've seen the u.k. germany and france add their voice to the u.s. saying that iran is responsible for that attack that took place 10 days ago on
5:53 am
oil installations in saudi arabia the actual words of bears responsibility for those attacks worth pointing out that say that iran necessarily carried them out that's right and of course we know that the trumpet ministration will want to use that to feel the prospects for further negotiations and some sort of agreement that includes iran's role in the region where is from the european perspective even if they were to reach that conclusion they were perfectly happy with the current nuclear pact and they might want to keep those those matters separated. yeah the europeans have always wanted to keep those matters separate and when i 1st heard the comments from prime minister johnson i saw an ambassador from one of the european countries i can't say who who's one of the u.n. ambassadors here and i said ambassador if you've seen the comments from prime minister johnson i showed them to him and he honestly was deeply shocked and his
5:54 am
words were oh my god oh my god this is a real change it seems if boris johnson's comments are u.k. policy but of course the statement the clarification statement says they're not in u.k. policy hasn't changed so i think we're going to have to see how this plays out in the coming hours clearly the idea that we might have had some sort of face to face meeting at this high level week between president trump and president rouhani has disappeared today i had breakfast with a small group of reporters who were invited by the iranian foreign minister mohammad job and zarif he said no way is the meeting going to take place unless the u.s. changes its position but it's worth telling you that the iranians are president rouhani is going to propose something called the homo's initiative which he says would be a new framework to deal with the problems in the gulf all the countries that border the gulf would be invited to take part under a u.n.
5:55 am
umbrella i think the problem with that potentially we haven't had any reaction from the trump administration is the course the united states doesn't border the gulf so it wouldn't get a seat at the table all right thanks very much james bays at united nations. well at the u.n. world leaders have also been discussing how to stop climate change from causing a planet wide catastrophe summit at this year's general assembly wants countries to build on their pledges from the historic paris agreement of 2015 which aims to cap the global temperature rise at one and a half degrees this century at least 30 countries have sworn to be carbon neutral 520-5066 of promise to be more ambitious finland and germany have vowed to ban the use of coal within a decade but 14 nations representing a quarter of global emissions have signaled they do not intend to revise their current climate plans by next year that's a deadline set by the u.n. chief antonio terry. of the swedish climate activists gratitude has made an
5:56 am
impassioned speech at the un telling world leaders they have betrayed young people she spoke at the summit before world leaders delivered their pledges for the environment u.s. president donald trump did make a brief appearance at the meeting which he had been expected to skip entirely as government has been a regular target for to galvanize millions of children around the world to take part in our weekly fridays for future school strikes so this is all wrong. i shouldn't be apia. i should be back in school on the other side of the ocean people are suffering people are dying entire school systems are collapsing we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. the eyes of all future generations are upon you. and if you choose to fail us i say we will never forgive you. rosen and jordan is
5:57 am
following this at the u.n. and joins us now a very powerful speech that by quite a turn by what was the reaction. will be sickly people have been given gratitude burge a standing ovation all day they have been applauding her passion her commitment her single mindedness in getting people to focus on the very real dangers and the real damage that is happening to the global environment because of the reliance on fossil fuels and not moving to other sources of energy in order to power societies big and small she was taking a look at how this summit this 1st ever calling it action summit has been going on monday i'm joined by anderson she is the director of u.n. environment program thanks so much for joining us here on al-jazeera 1st off what has been your takeaway from what world leaders and community activists have been
5:58 am
bringing to the table at this climate action summit when i think the secretary general of the united nations has really raised the bar he said look it doesn't work anymore to come and talk we we cannot negotiate with nature and what we have to do is have actions and people have responded heads of state have responded ministers have responded private sector has this responded led by us you mentioned gratitude and barak who gave her statement this morning it hit us all in the hot because here's a young woman who can see what needs to be done she has stood up and stood up and mobilized a movement so what i take a ways is high energy and frankly never been to an united nations general assembly with this degree of excitement and commitment so it's been a good day it's been a good day now we start the real work. what is the pressure that world leaders in particular have to feel do you think in order to slow down. the rate of temperature
5:59 am
rise to reverse it eventually and to preserve the natural environment around us 2 things on the one hand we need to d. carbonized our economies we can do this we need to take measured steps but determine steps to ensure that we phase out the high c o 2 pollutant polluting energy and transport means while we invest in and ensure that we have clean and renewable energy but that will take us a little time and there we have a very powerful ally during that transition and that is called nature investing in nature's infrastructure our trees our a wetlands our esther ease our mangroves our core reefs they protect us when the seas rise they protect us when the storms come they provide in a sense a natural cushion for us wise they also absorb carbon so a big conversation piece today has been let's bring nature in as the strongest ally
6:00 am
let's invest in nature based solutions ensuring that nature can help us during that decoupling isolation period so that's a huge takeaway from today is this we are farmers and landscape architects and people who study botany is this where their expertise should be brought to bear and if so why hasn't it happened before nell i think so far in the climate negotiations we've focused on energy we've focused on transport we've focused on cities where we have a huge carbon footprint and so we focus on that side of the equation which is important which is a priority don't get me wrong but what we have now discussed today and in the months leading up to this is that we need to protect our tropical forests we need to have nature positive farming we need to think about parks in cities trees bring
6:01 am
down the temperature in a. trees provide shade trees also makes the cities much more livable so and keep dust down so there are many advantages so yes this is where we need a new set of stakeholders inside the conversation the farming community that can donate to positive farming the forestry community and those that protect our tropical forests and the land degradation community if you like those that work to fight this interview cation those that work to fight this land degradation we have about 2000000 hecht 2000000000 hectares of land that is degraded let's bring that back let's bring that back to forest it that will also help not only for jobs also for climate and for biodiversity right in her understand with you an environment program thanks so much for joining us here on al-jazeera appreciate your insights my pleasure thanks with you and mario the session is running a little bit behind to it's not a real surprise a summit but we are expecting to hear from
6:02 am
a few more world leaders before the tourney the secretary general of the terrorist wraps up with a summary of what he thinks has been achieved at this climate action summit thank you very much with the latest from the united nations rosen in jordan bring us up all the latest on climate change that on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly u.s. president onil trump has praised egypt saida of the fatah sisi for bringing order to his country and he dismissed concerns of a recent protests in several egyptian cities human rights activists say the authorities had rounded up more than 400 people in response to the rallies against sisi on friday and rap public display of dissent hundreds took to the streets in the capital cairo and other cities to protest against alleged government corruption . you know i'm not i'm not concerned with. egypt has a great leader highly respected he's brought order before he was here there was very little order there was chaos so i'm not worried.
6:03 am
joins us now also following this story from the united nations and so president trump describes. sisi as a real leader he says that egypt was in turmoil went over but it's not now. indeed it seems the president has the sick got what he wanted he was looking for strong assurance from u.s. president president donald trump particularly that statement where he said that egypt was in turmoil but when sisi took over there's no more turmoil and that he is a great leader and this is very interesting moment a very critical moment for all of that there has faces a protest movement a protest movement in his country but when he was asked about what what is happening over there it was quite interesting that the part that has sisi didn't
6:04 am
mention the protesters at all of this is what he had to say. you will always find something like this in our region especially with political islam there's been an effort for many years to make sure this political islam has a role in the political arena consequently this part of the world will remain in a state of instability as long as political islam is there little isn't going to rest assured that especially in egypt the public opinion and the people themselves of the fusing these type of political islam. why is that statement interesting because of the effort or has he saying what is happening is an event that was staged by the muslim brotherhood and this is why he is use the term political islam i defer to his sister when he took power in a military coup in 2013 was basically reiterating the same message but that what
6:05 am
he's doing in egypt that the clamp down on the protesters are human rights activists of the muslim brotherhood is for the sake of bringing about stability to egypt and he was brushing aside accusations from the international community from human rights agencies about the clampdown on protesters and on this than saying that this is a legitimate act against what he describes as terrorism in his country now we've seen thousands of young egyptians across the country saying that the reason why that took to the streets this time is because they believe that it had to have sisi has impoverished his own country his impoverished the people this comes against the backdrop of some interesting developments over the last few weeks following some video opposed to buy and egyptian construction contractor who used to work with the army he left egypt he lives in self-imposed exile in in spain and he said that and he accused the president the military elite of embezzling public funds and impoverishing the egypt and this explains the recent wave of protests across the
6:06 am
country the words from president trump to see see a very important and i think he was looking forward to those reassuring words from trump to go back to egypt and that's where we have to wait and see what would be his reaction to the protest movement particularly on friday when thousands of people are expected to talk to take to the streets across the country and to denounce their legacy of the fact that has sisi. all right thank you very much with the latest from the united nations and just while we're there looking at developments at the u.n. in new york u.s. president donald trump has dismissed french president emanuel attempt to mediate between the united states and iran the french have been trying to deescalate recent tensions in the region and also between iran and the west but it looks as though there is no immediate prospect for that moving forward president trump saying he's
6:07 am
pretty much ruling out a meeting with the iranian president hassan rouhani this week though the iranians have also made it clear that they have no intention of meeting with trump until and unless conditions change you at the news hour live from london much more still to tell you about protests mobs torch homes and businesses in indonesia's popple province as angola rises over a room is a braces m 5 nations agree a temporary arrangement to distribute migrants rescued from the mediterranean. and whales are up and running at the rugby world cup will be here with reaction from the match against georgia. 40 civilians attending a wedding party in afghanistan have been killed in a raid backed by u.s. airstrikes the attack by afghan forces took place in the mussa collar region of

6:09 am
a wedding party that was happening nearby that was caught in this airstrike now the number of civilian casualties varies the taliban has issued a statement saying tens of people have been killed others injured other figures differ to that but what we do know it does seem as though a large number of civilians once again have been caught up in a battle between taliban and coalition forces and a number include colluding many women and children this comes of course as afghanistan is preparing for its presidential election in the coming saturday the last couple of days have been generally quiet here in afghanistan but we have seen generally a surge in the number of attacks taking place both by the taliban who have threatened to disrupt this election process and also in response coalition attacks trying to make sure that there is security here for this election to take place and we are

6:13 am
western province of darfor protests have taken place in the city of niala as well as in the capital hard to the demonstrators have also been rallying against the region security problems it's one of the biggest protests since a power sharing deal was signed between the military and pro-democracy leaders last month. well at least 20 people have died in violent protests in indonesia's pop 4 province angry mobs set fire to vehicles government buildings shops and even homes and he say most of the people died when they were trapped by the flames at least 3 of those were shot by security forces the protest response by room is that a teacher had insulted an indigenous student thousands of people have demonstrated recently of allegations of racism against ethnic ones him hamad has more now from the intonation capital. there's been another outbreak of violence between protesters and government forces in the indonesian province of pop-y. according to the ministry spokesman around 20 people have been killed in the tunnel when a sign that there were clashes at
6:14 am
a high school and the airport there is now closed i'd also in the capital of die a poor a several people were killed there including an indonesian military officer this was during a protest at the university now various pictures are being shed on social media which al-jazeera has not been able to independently verify but the team did speak to a pastor hartley in woman who said that it was so chaotic that he was not able to leave his child stooge the fact that people were destroying the buildings outside now the region has seen unrest since mid august of accusations of racial and ethnic discrimination and the some of the protesters are mourning for referendum on independence now the indonesian government and the pos also try to curb these protests by putting a crackdown on internet access i would believe that that internet blackout has now been enforced once again and the president has said that social media is to blame for some of the fake messages that have been shed online around some of the violence that occurred earlier in the day and he's people to be more cautious about
6:15 am
the information that's being shed on social media and right now we understand that an investigation is underway into the latest violence. 5 e.u. countries have come out with a temporary plan to redistribute the large numbers of refugees and migrants rescued from the mediterranean italy malta france germany and finland which currently holds the e.u. presidency of agree to share rescued asylum seekers between them the deal will apply until an e.u. meeting on october 8th when they hope many more e.u. states will join the arrangement italy's new interior minister said migrants with then be sent to various e.u. states within 4 weeks of disembarking using a quota system and those countries would handle their asylum requests we're going to go has more now from malta where the agreement was reached. it may be one step towards a solution but it's one of a delicate seemed to be satisfied with as they came up with a blueprint for
6:16 am
a temporary emergency mechanism in order to resolve the migration crisis in europe certainly seem to be optimistic that they would present those plans on the 8th of october at another interior minister's meeting in luxembourg now the challenge for this would be in order to get all the member states to try to take in more of the asylum seekers especially in malta and italy there has been a great deal of pushback from countries such as poland and hungary who refused to do so and certainly the migration policy said they depart in that box there is also another solution and all the sudden you have taken a quote from france and from germany they said they would be prepared to take 25 percent of any asylum seekers who lived in italy would also be prepared to take 10 percent but that is they say because they've received tens of thousands.
6:17 am
nevertheless trying to persuade other member states to take in more people will certainly be a challenge and also will no doubt rile up. voices in other countries throughout the european union so let's discuss this some more now with gemma byrd who's a lecturer and politics and international relations at the university of liverpool with a special interest in migration so of course we know that this issue has pretty much deadlocked e.u. countries they haven't been able to in some ship by ship arrangements but we have seen the complete absence of a comprehensive policy tell us about what precisely they've agreed here. as i say at this stage obviously this agreement is in the very early stages this is preliminary and hillis is taken to the meeting on the train there and we see how the rest of your response to this we will be waiting to hear who are our friends at
6:18 am
this stage that there are 5 range minutes that focus on particularly the mediterranean ring and i think this is something that we need to be aware of at this agreement deals with people arriving predominantly by the mediterranean into italy and not. where actually the numbers of people entering through the balkans in particular through grace is higher so the fact that greece is not involved in this discussion at this stage is something to be concerned about i think it suggests that this might be more of a political agreement and a humanitarian agreement estate so what's likely to happen then in october because this is when the plan is currently voluntary but the idea is that it's then presented to all the interior ministers of all the countries and that hopefully more will sign up how likely is that well absolutely at this stage as you say it is voluntary but there is a discussion of whether or not they could put sanctions in place against congeries that say they don't want to be involved however so far what negative responses they
6:19 am
raped or ban has said that it is a deplorable and dangerous intention to reopen the ports and you know she. will never agree to the redistribution of migrants saved in the mediterranean so this isn't a positive sign from countries like hungry and is that poland as well but other countries have been more receptive in the fact that france and germany germany are involved in these discussions is obviously a positive sign it is but even with the best will in the world and given what we've seen it it doesn't look as though there is likely to be any sustainable agreement on the redistribution of asylum seekers what are the alternatives in the meantime. so i think in particular what we need to focus on is how limited this agreement actually is as well so in particular the fact that the focus is on people who have been rescued by either n.g.o.s ships ships commercial ships this is not people who
6:20 am
are landing themselves and in italy in particular this is around 10 percent of people between june 282-9000 were actually rescued by n.g.o.s ships so this is a very small percentage i think what needs to happen immediately in areas of a big crowding particularly recently 80 and islands where overcrowding is extremely serious needs to be far quicker asylum processes people can't be stuck for the length of time they currently are and we need to move the people who way from these hot spots that happen people's lives rest jelinek. thank you very much to do appreciate you taking the time gemma gemma. there from the university of liverpool thank you thank you now earlier an emergency meeting was held on the greek island of lesbos because of a sharp rise in migrants and refugees arriving there in boats from turkey aid workers at the morea refugee camp say conditions are hideous it was built to look
6:21 am
after 3000 refugees but now houses 12000 and is turning new arrivals away. more still ahead for you on the program going to bring you all the latest on the political storm involving president don't trump ukraine's president a whistleblower and threats of legal action. but in launches its biggest peace time we patch relation as the car laps of travel from thomas 600000 travelers stranded abroad. and israel bans players from a palestinian team from leaving the gaza strip. however cloud mass has been producing thunderstorms gradually from the western med to the ages it is drifting still further south east was a continuous process is the end of this latest frontal system in the atlantic so
6:22 am

6:28 am
main rival in the 2020 presidential election transit ministration has blocked congress from obtaining a whistle blows complaint allegedly detailing the president's actions calls for trump to be impeached have intensified while mike hanna joins us now from washington so it seems as though there is growing concern among lawmakers there about president trump's alleged pressure on the ukrainian president. well indeed democrats in both house and senate have been expressing the deepest concern about the allegations and are demanding to see or be briefed on a copy of that whistleblowers complaint now the situation with that is that went to the inspector general of ins intelligence services who in turn vetted it found it to be credible and of an urgent nature sent it on to the acting director of national intelligence who supposedly had a week to take it before a congressional committee this he did not do because he was advised not to do so by
6:29 am
the justice department now that director of national intelligence has now been subpoenaed to appear before a house committee on thursday that is going to be with this story moves forward other branches of congress are as you saying seeking ways in which to force the president to make the contents of that conversation public but one must emphasize that there is no confirmation that it was the conversation with the ukrainian president that was the subject of the whistle blower's complaint or we do know is that the inspector general told a congressional committee that there were a number of complaints not just relating to a single conversation he refused to divulge any further details saying basically is hands are being tied by the director of national intelligence at that stage right so there is suspicion here about an obvious conflict of interest or abuse of power that's there and so this is now fueling calls for impeachment. you know we've heard
6:30 am
this before from the democrats haven't we is there any reason to think that this. has really caused any significant change in that. well it might have up to in a way the impeachment debate which has been raging within the democrats for a period of time now the house speaker nancy pelosi refusing to take a position on the matter a number of democrats waiting for her to take some form of lead she's been arguing that to do it would be politically undermining to start an impeachment process where you know that at the end of it it is not going to go through the senate the senate being the final trial in any impeachment matter but the latest events concerning the allegations surrounding ukraine and allegations surrounding potential treason being committed by the president that has real work and the impeachment debate and certainly there are some who were not talking impeachment before now are beginning to do so and pressure is mounting on the leader of the

6:35 am
great mysteries of brics it has always been what the labor party's position on this is certainly the membership of the party overwhelmingly supports staying in the european union but their leader jeremy corbin is quite another question through his entire political career as a renegade left winger he'd been the euro skeptic and great danger to the cause of socialism in this country or any other country of the imposition of fact has you are but by the time the brics referendum happened he'd done what looked like a half hearted about turned labor party is going to be committed to campaigning to stay within the european union for the last 3 years the party membership has tried to convince itself that corbin is on their side and no longer the problem for corbett isn't only the voters find his positional bricks it confused it's that throughout his entire political career he sets himself up as a conviction politician prepared to go out on a limb to try to break the mold of traditional politics so much ambiguity of a brick's it seems to fly in the face of his own idea of himself activists forced
6:36 am
to motion calling for the party to unequivocally support staying in the european union there's this idea that somehow we're going to wait until after the election attend that we've got no position now and then. sort of but will definitely get paid for maybe the future never be except that we're going to get paid for many future i'm sorry but i don't think that treating voters like they're idiots is a vote so could read. i read the leadership among the conference delegates such as the support for corbin that speaker after speaker urged them to vote for him. position which is not to decide on the brics it policy until he becomes prime minister. and then separately the pro e.u. side lost it as a mole so the story of the day it is shoulder to the membership of the policy people in this room have not how their views reflected by their own leaders and that does not bode well for the cold in. that labor policy conference in brighton.

6:39 am
a year after water lifted russia's original ban over a state sponsored doping program what has president craig really stands by that decision despite these latest developments. disappointing i don't think is an embarrassment because the whole point of the exercise was to get the information so that we could put together a case which international federation should prosecute against people that have been cheating and we've done that we have $47.00 cases under way at the moment and potentially an awful lot more from the doctor to we have we've no inconsistency we're going to do with that we're going to do with properly the alternative to doing nothing. you rebuild the russian anti doping agency which we did over a number of years but we don't know compliant so what happens now. also on monday
6:40 am
as expected it was announced that russia's ban from athletics has been extended that means that for the 2nd time running their athletes will miss out on the world championships that will start in doha this week. the council unanimously indorsed the strongest recommendation that we have probably the us had. the. from the task force that the russian federation remains suspended that will be opposition. as we enter congress and i'm sure the member federations will want to endorse the unanimous position that was struck by the council we had a lengthy discussion today in council after room and the task force reported to us and the issues were debated in length and the feeling was very strong about this the amir of qatar says the upcoming 2022 world cup will be quote the greenest tournaments ever he made the pledge at the u.n.
6:41 am
summit on climate change earlier in new york as you move because we are committed to organizing an environment friendly tournament the 1st carbon neutral tournament in the world through the use of solar powered stadiums and cooling and lighting technologies that are water and energy efficient. israel has blocked a gaza football team from playing a local cup final in the occupied west bank the rafa has tried for months to get permits but have not been able to need to abraham sent us this report from the stadium where wednesday's mash is supposed to take place. the for the matter of a club in the gaza strip might lose the opportunity to play in the agent's champions league the players were one game away from winning the palestine cup that qualifies them for the international tournament only to find most of them were banned from playing by the israeli government it banned them from leaving gaza to
6:42 am
go and play in the occupied west bank showed on the right in the border and i feel defeated we can't even practice the sport we love like the rest of the players in the world we can't even go from the gaza strip to the occupied west bank even though we are one state. how the mother of another west bank drew their 1st leg match one all in gaza in june the overall winner after both legs would have played in the asian geek but israel only allowed 5 players to leave gaza denied entry based on what israel called security ground palestinians say the ban is the norm not the exception. this is a political decision linked to how the israeli occupation functions and deals with the palestinian sports it paralyzes our movement and restricts our ability to play the game. not only does israel control movement between the occupied west bank and the gaza strip but also decide who can enter or exit the palestinian territory i think the message that this kind of decision and sense is that even if you just
6:43 am
want to play football you know even if you're trying to achieve your personal goals your professional goals the effect is that you're lost for trouble i think the sense of wrong message i think that people who are doing worthy goals. they should not be facing these kinds of obstructions i think it's you know. what they call the lack of freedom of movement was at the heart of a palestinian bid to suspend israel's membership of football's world governing body 54 years ago palestinians then dropped a motion in exchange for an israeli promise of better treatment which palestinians sportsmen and women say hasn't been kept palestinians complain that is reduced pictures on their movements is here it's another example of how they are deprived of having a functioning society that. the occupied west bank u.s. captain megan rapinoe has won the award for features best woman's player at

6:47 am
a heated one this is a little beach and literally be able to do a ph and i think join the global conversation with people i think if only they knew what is happening to a lot of muslims they will be with us and they will be outraged amount is iraq. in a world where a journalism as an industry is changing we had al jazeera fortunate to be able to continue to expand to continue to have that passenger drive and present the stories in a way that is important to our viewers. everyone has a story worth hearing. and cover those that are often ignored we don't weigh our coverage towards one particular region or continent that's why i joined al-jazeera . that's pretty prepares to exit the people in power investigates disturbing allegations about the tactics used by the winning campaign we know that

up on the program egypt's president dismisses public protests against his role as rights groups say more than 400 people have been arrested in a government crackdown also. if you will come to us young people for hope. how dare you. know rates world leaders at the united nations climate summit. and at least 40 civilians are killed at a wedding party in afghanistan i was believed to be a u.s. airstrike. ockham's the program our top story the u.k. france and germany are blaming iran for attacked. on saudi oil facilities earlier this month the european leaders have held talks at the sidelines of the un general assembly in new york they've released a joint statement calling on to iran to agree to negotiations on its nuclear and
6:50 am
missile programs as well as on regional security issues meanwhile a u.k. government spokesman is insisting the prime minister supports the iran nuclear deal all this after boris johnson suggested it was time for a new agreement earlier on monday he said it was time to move forward and negotiate a new accord but the government spokesman said johnson still supports the pact and iran needs to start complying with the with the terms of the deal now the 2015 agreement has been unraveling since the u.s. withdrew from it and re imposed sanctions u.s. president trump was quick to say he supported johnson's early a call for a new deal. but one of the biggest things is the fact that the the agreement is going to expire in a very short number of years and what kind of a deal is that when dealing with countries you have to go love carom so i respect boris a lot and i am not at all surprised that he was the 1st one to come out and say that i diplomatic editor james raines has more from the u.n. well really complete confusion here in the united nations about what the u.k.
6:51 am
position is right now is the u.k. about to bricks it out of the iran nuclear deal because of course the u.s. pulled out of that deal last year but all the other signatures have stayed strong to the deal and the u.k. has consistently said it supports the iran nuclear deal now yeah boris johnson in a u.k. t.v. interview carried out new york saying that it needs renegotiating and they need to look at everything in a new deal well the u.k. has always made the point in the past that nuclear deal should be separate kept separate and everything else should be negotiated separately so again that looks like a change in policy i can tell you the word is that the u.k. prime minister has done another interview in which he said similar things saying that iran deal is a bad deal and president trump is the only person who could renegotiate a new good deal and then to add to the confusion even though president trump has reacted to all of those comments the u.k.
6:52 am
foreign office has put out a statement saying that the u.k. still stands by the iran nuclear deal so real confusion at a time of real tension as you say we've seen the u.k. germany and france add their voice to the u.s. saying that iran is responsible for that attack that took place 10 days ago on oil installations in saudi arabia the actual words a bears responsibility for those attacks worth pointing out that say that iran necessarily carried them out. well united nations today world leaders have been discussing how to stop climate change from causing a planet wide catastrophe the summit at this year's general assembly wants countries to build on their pledges from the historic paris agreement of 2015 which aims to cap the global temperature rise at one and a half degrees this century at least 30 countries have sworn to be carbon neutral 520-5066 have promised to be more ambitious and their climate goals finland and

6:54 am
the un a world leader who does not share her urgency the u.n. secretary general called this summit to get countries businesses and ordinary painful to unveil their plans of action this is not the lights we can do it's limiting warming to 1.5 degrees is still possible. but you do require a fundamental transformation as in all aspects of society are we going to foods use lands fuel our transport and followed already economy good data should you want the summit to be a show of support for the goals of the 2015 powers climate change agreement those who spoke said they were committed to exceeding their obligations under paris out of the don't go to really tool to do. emissions autumn back for from the city how about we need. to have some more support to go. to reduce. carbon footprint listening in at least for a few minutes u.s.

6:58 am
of being a successful military operation saying a number of foreign taliban fighters as it describes them were killed in this attack others were captured and a large cache of taliban weaponry was seized but it does seem according to various reports coming from helmand province including the governor's office. number of civilians were also caught up in this attack particularly from a wedding party that was happening nearby that was caught in this airstrike now the number of civilian casualties varies the taliban has issued a statement saying tens of people have been killed others injured other figures differ to that but what we do know it does seem as though a large number of civilians once again have been caught up in a battle between taliban and coalition forces and a number including many women and children this comes of course as afghanistan is
6:59 am
preparing for its presidential election in the coming saturday the last couple of days have been generally quiet here in afghanistan but we have seen generally a surge in the number of attacks taking place both by the taliban who have threatened to disrupt this election process and also in response coalition attacks trying to make sure that there is security here for this election to take place and we are still several days away from polling. still ahead for you on the program personal inches its biggest peacetime repatriation is the collapse of travel from thomas cook the 600000 travelers stranded abroad. and 5 nations agree a temporary arrangement to distribute migrants rescued from the mediterranean.

president on trump has praised egypt's leader abdel fatah sisi for bringing order to his country and he dismissed concerns over recent protests in several egyptian cities human rights activists say the authorities have rounded up more than 400 people in response to the rallies against sisi on friday the egyptian president insists there is no public support for his removal. is following this particular story for us and is at the united nations now and. president truong has long made. no his feelings and opinions about president sisi but how extraordinary is this show of support from the u.s. president given the challenges is egyptian counterpart is facing. a crucial moment indeed for president of the for to i.c.c. because he faces the biggest challenge to his rule and he was desperate for a show of support he got strong endorsement from the president of the most powerful
7:04 am
country in the world president trump basically saying that i defer to his sisi is a great leader in the middle east and that egypt was into more before of the c.c. and that's no longer the case after he took over and this comes at a crucial moment for the egyptian president who faces where protest movement across the country people denouncing his legacy people saying that he has embezzled public funds and that he has impoverished millions of people the government until today was tight lipped about what was happening in. egypt states media was basically either in denial or accusing the muslim brotherhood of the political party there was banned by a president of the fatah has he said when he came to power in 2013 in a military coup now many people in egypt are concerned about the statement and
7:05 am
those words by a president trying because they are concerned that that could be used by president of the fatah has sisi to continue his clampdown on dissent now it was also interesting to say see it to see sisi. staying away from those protests are basically only mentioning political islam saying that when political islam is given a chance it creates instability and that political islam was rejected in egypt into 1012 and i think that was a reference to the muslim brotherhood in a way or another he was saying that those who took to the streets. affiliated with the muslim brotherhood and therefore they belong to a group which i consider to be a terrorist organization. thank you very much for the latest from the united nations on this story thank you. all now we go to kenya at least 7 children have been killed in the capital nairobi after their classroom collapsed as they started their morning lessons the school has now been ordered closed for 4 days catherine

7:24 am
these northern that have facility she can't deliver there when her child dies she feels the aim and with this sense they go to look for work that was terrible. so. this is our village called or disadvantage the only source of water here is this river it's very dirty it's very contaminated so when we came to train and we just had the water it was full of equalize so there people saw the need of having clean water for a woman having safe water is a very key issue and using water is and you know very we'll have parting them but when i advertised that they were having some trainings on water i applied after the training we came back to do some implementation and the technology you had picked was rain water harvesting so this is the 1st time we started when we started with a water tank and after some time the women say they won't control the town.
7:25 am
this community is so i am powered now and decided they only need savings account. and a 60. number very. pretty. before we started any projects here i still had them for real 6 months i was disgusted to build in them so when we did this our auction plan had the water as our priority was what i was a new problem as were being ripped when the when they were going to move 40 in the evening there was a lot of the area in this community then we see what is the solution to this having clean and safe return so when the plant i bought the water then i went for the training then will make you shared with them and they bought into the idea so this is what has been helping these women every day somebody is in charge you sell the water keep the records and at the end of the month because it how much you have

7:30 am
anybody destroying the i want to tell you we try to help you analyze the problems because we look want to come to the old solution and whenever you see rosemary coming you know these men but lose maybe not have them and so we said better attitude to realize that our problems i was and this is actually you know 2. 6 2 that. you know the african tradition. going along we need demand support even for us to accommodate this to the people who sit in the health center called me to basically men so it's then we'll decide what needs to happen since we knew them alone then they would say what contributed to the women making our society but in this we were doing this obviously all the time then they realize i don't remember also how something called secretly the economy of the community. and what it was. it was a lot about what was a total. amount of

fields attack. if you choose to take a loss i say we will never forgive you reza turn back but rates the wild leaders at the u.n. climate summit. donald trump throws his support behind egypt's leaders saying everybody has demonstrations. and a us back to raid on the taliban killed at least 40 civilians at a wedding and afghanistan. now the u.k. france and germany say it is clear that iran bears responsibility for the attacks on saudi oil facilities this month the european leaders met on the sidelines of the un general assembly in new york where british prime minister barak johnson hinted that the u.k. may withdraw from the 25th day in iran nuclear deal water runs foreign minister job at the reef has ruled out the possibility of negotiating
7:50 am
a new deal with the remaining signatories how diplomatic editor james bays has the latest from the united nations. is the u.k. about to break seats from the iran nuclear deal there is great confusion after comments made in interviews by prime minister boris johnson in which he said it was a bad deal that needs renegotiating and that president trump was the man to do so for years trump was quick to seize on what appeared to be a change in u.k. policy oh i respect boris a lot and i am not at all surprised that he was the 1st one to come out and say that later though this statement is clarification the prime minister supports the j c p a way that's the iran nuclear deal the iranians aren't currently in compliance and we need to bring them back into compliance it all comes at a time of growing tension the u.k. france and germany have now joined the u.s. in declaring that iran was responsible for the drone attacks on saudi arabia's oil
7:51 am
installations meanwhile iran's foreign minister mohammed job as the reef says a meeting between president trump and president rouhani will certainly not take place this week but he says iran will propose a new peace mechanism it's calling the whole moves initiative which will consist of all the countries in the gulf under a u.n. umbrella he believe it should be owned by the countries in the region by the u.n. umbrella addresses a number of incense verses in the u.n. umbrella dresses the disparities in size power. he's a bug. if. he's just about it isn't it always did even begin to g.c.c. as you know developments regarding iran are moving extremely far and president trump is likely to devote a significant part of his speech to the general assembly on choose day to the ongoing crisis james pays al-jazeera at the united nations. well for more on this
7:52 am
we can speak to hillary mann leverett she joins us now live from washington d.c. she's a former white house and u.s. state department official ms levered a fairly strong statement that we're hearing from france britain and germany how can they be so sure and i know they're also saying bears responsibility for the attacks rather than suggesting that iran actually launched them yes i mean there is no proof the french the british and the germans are not even waiting for a u.n. or international investigation which the saudis have themselves called for 'd the e.u. 3 as they're called the germans the french and the british are coming out jumping the gun not waiting for an investigation to say that iran must have done it there's no other explanation well that really underestimates as they have for years what the yemenis have been capable of doing and i think we all have underestimated what the yemenis are capable of doing much to our much more peril well hillary i also want to ask you because now we're seeing this latest tweet from job and zarif
7:53 am
saying that there's no new deal before compliance with the current one so where does that leave the process now. the i think that the process really is it is in tatters nobody is really interested in continuing with the iran nuclear deal the j c p a way including the iranians but i think the europeans have taken a real gamble throwing their weight behind president trump in some sort of new multilateral deal because trump is not interested in a multilateral deal he is interested in by lateral deals where the u.s. has overwhelming leverage against its power against the party that it's negotiating with so trump wants a bilateral deal with with iran and in the end he's going to turn on the europeans and they're going to be left out in the cold so this is a really calculated calculated policy that trump is is pursuing and the europeans are really now on full display for their weakness they can't even protect what they said was their landmark diplomatic achievement with iran which was in their utmost
7:54 am
national security interests the whole process really is in tatters let me ask you more about the u.s. strategy here because if indeed iran does bear responsibility for these attacks does that mean that the u.s. strategy of of maximum pressure has failed. well i think clearly it does but secretary of state pompei oh is using this as a sign of success that somehow the iranians have become so desperate that they're even going to attack saudi oil installations when in fact the entire world can see that saudi arabia today compared to just 2 weeks ago is now completely exposed to all of its vital oil assets it's vital national security assets are completely exposed whether it's to iran to yemen or to anybody else it's clear for all to see that they don't have a viable defense strategy a viable defense for their country that is not something that the united states or anybody else can really count as a success well given that at the u.n.
7:55 am
this week it's potentially a chance to try to reshape some of the debate and potentially some of the dynamics around this issue but we're also hearing that they'll definitely now be no meeting between trump and rouhani so where to from here in terms of the strategy if the strategy is failing what happens next well i think. from the trump administration's perspective and from the president himself who of course i don't speak to but i do talk to people that do provide some advice to him my understanding is that his 1st and foremost strategy is to really destroy the multilateral process to have the europeans give up on their landmark achievement the iran nuclear deal that way and leave iran in their view the trouble ministrations you iran will then be isolated the europeans will be behind trump any iran will be on its own and then iran will be more vulnerable to u.s. leverage in a negotiation and then trump can have his his strategic prize a great deal with iran that's even better than president obama had right before the

8:10 am
companies in the world well one of the factors was they just failed to keep up with the times in an age where many people are happy to order holidays themselves online rather than a package from a travel agents in a shop but then there's also the weak british pounds an early european summer heat wave and then the impacts that breaks its uncertainty is out on whether people here want to risk going abroad to their favorite european destinations. the u.k. government is fast tracking an investigation into how the company and its directors handled it slide towards insolvency thomas cook set up his business 178 years ago booking train tickets for victorian britons now it's consigned to the history books . out a 0 london. well a german airline condo is half owned by thomas koch but its planes are still flying john mccain has that balance shot and failed airport. the airline condo operators

8:13 am
socialism in this country or any other country of the imposition as you are but by the time the brics referendum happened he done what looked like a half hearted about turned labor party's going to be committing to campaigning to stay within the european union for the last 3 years the party membership has tried to convince itself that colvin is on their side and no longer the problem for kolb it isn't only the voters find his positional bricks it confused it's that throughout his entire political career he sets himself up as a conviction politician prepared to go out on a limb to try to break the mold of traditional politics so much ambiguity of a brick's it seems to fly in the face of his own idea of himself activists forced a motion calling for the party to unequivocally support staying in the european union there's this idea that somehow we're going to wait until after the election attend that we've got no position now and then. sort of but will definitely a pain remain the future never be except that we're going to get paid for many

assembly in new york where british prime minister barak's johnson hinted that the u.k. may withdraw from the 2015 iran nuclear deal. leaders have gathered at the un for a climate change summit to try and prevent a global irreversible catastrophe they have been told that greenhouse gas commitments must be at least tripled to meet the goals of the 2015 paris agreement . us president donald trump has praised egypt's leader abdel fattah el-sisi for bringing order to his country dismissing concerns over recent protests and several egyptian cities human rights activists say police had rounded up more than $400.00 people at rallies against sisi since friday. now 3 u.s. congressional committees have threatened to push ahead with trying to obtain documents relating to president of trans dealings with ukraine trump is coming under fire over a ports to ukraine's president to investigate the son of joe biden who's seen as
8:20 am
his main rival in the 2020 presidential election his administration has blocked congress from obtaining a whistle blower's complaint and edge of the detailing the president's actions well let's speak to mike hanna now for more on this mike president trump i believe is now defending having raised the subject of joe biden's son on this call to selenski yes he has indeed he has said repeatedly that the phone call itself was innocuous he has admitted that he did discuss the issue of joe biden here he continues to refuse to release the transcript of this particular conversation now the media has speculated that it was this conversation with the ukrainian president that led to the complaint by some whistleblower within the intelligence community now the trumpet ministration is withholding that complaint which congressional members insist is actually breaking the law because legally such a complaint coming through the inspector general of intelligence services should at
8:21 am
some stage come before a congressional oversight committee to be examined so that all of those requests or letters to the secretary of state might pompei o from 3 congressional committees asking for the transcript of that phone conversation but there's also a subpoena to the acting director of national intelligence who will appear before a congressional committee on thursday to explain why the complaint has not been released to congress oh mike as we know the impeachment debate has been continuing for some time on capitol hill how significant is this whole issue when it comes to those calls. well it's very significant indeed in fact the whole issue of him preachment has been completely govern ised by the reports over the telephone call to the ukraine and reports of whistle blowers complaint being withheld from congress many within congress democrats as well were reluctant to go the
8:22 am
impeachment route among them for example house speaker nancy pelosi who argued that it could be politically damaging to go for impeachment but increasingly in recent days 'd following the reports concerning the ukraine telephone conversation the whole impeachment debate has once again being galvanized and many democrats are now moving towards the idea of starting an impeachment process including some who were opposed to that before so this could well be the signature moment in the process to attempt to get an impeachment. process move against the u.s. president and certainly the likelihood of an impeachment process is greater now than it was before the reports about the ukrainian conversation and the white house withholding information from congress our correspondent mike hanna there in washington d.c. thank you for that. well 5 e.u. countries have come up with a temporary plan to redistribute the large numbers of refugees and migrants rescued
8:23 am
from the mediterranean italy malta from germany and finland which currently holds the e.u. presidency have agreed to share rescued asylum seekers the deal will apply to an e.u. meeting on october 8th when they hope many more states will join the arrangement is lee's new interior minister said the idea was that migrants would be sent to various states within 4 weeks of disembarking using a quota system and those countries would then handle their asylum requests well if lee and malta have consistently refused to allow rescue vessels to dock there they say they're on fairly bearing the burden of migrant arrivals so now gager has the latest from. it may be one step towards a solution but it's one of the delegates seem to be satisfied with as they came up with a blueprint for a temporary emergency mechanism in order to resolve the migration crisis in europe they certainly seem to be optimistic that they would present those plans on the 8th
8:24 am
of october at another interior ministers meeting in luxembourg now the challenge for this would be in order to get all the member states to try and take in more of the asylum seekers that have landed especially in malta and italy there has been a great deal of pushback from countries such as poland and hungary who refused to do so and certainly the migration policies have played a part in that but there is also another solution office certainly of taking in a higher quote from france and from germany they said they would be prepared to take 25 percent of any asylum seekers who landed here italy would also be prepared to take 10 percent but that is they say because they've received tens of thousands of people on their shores nevertheless trying to persuade other member states to take in more people will certainly be a challenge and also will no doubt rile up other voices in other countries
8:25 am
throughout the european union often because the representative for the u.n. high commissioner for refugees in greece he says other countries must do more than just send money to greece. the last 2 months have been very difficult in terms of arrivals on the islands with many families young children arriving from turkey and who are afghans syrians mostly many of them are staying in 5 camps which are overcrowded sometimes 7 times their capacity particularly on the island of some of unless of course it is creating a lot of tension among the communities which led to weeks ago to the killing of one afghan miner by another miner so it is it important that. the greek authorities have the possibility of managing rightly but more transferring as quickly as possible people to the mainland by increasing the capacity of course the
8:26 am
greek authorities are receiving up to 2000000 euros by the european commission that what is required right now particularly for the unaccredited children is that european states take themselves parts of them to their own countries and not only pay greece to deal with them sudanese activists say thousands of people have been protesting against a di economic conditions in the western province of darfur demonstrations have taken place in the city of in yala and also in the country's capital khartoum the demonstrators have also been rallying against darfur with security problems it's one of the biggest protests since a power sharing deal was signed between the military and pro-democracy leaders last month there are fears that large areas of northern nigeria could soon be facing food shortages after weeks of flooding destroyed crops nigeria suffers floods almost every year but this sea is deluge has killed dozens of people and washed away thousands of homes amid idriss reports from oyo in jigawa states where the

8:28 am
that account for 80 percent of the country's culture production. nigerians have been want to expect more flooding nationwide raising fears of possible for shortages as crops are washed away the country was recently listed among 41 countries that require food aid partly because of their weather conditions and because the government has banned food importation through its 9 borders many families may struggle to feed themselves. the governor of the state says the state government is struggling to help over 100000 people 70000 have. gone. and this is also a similar thing but what is interesting this year for us is the new places that have not been traditionally on the floor did i what we do now is to support those people that have lost the towns to to put them in the shelters and try to see how we can feed them but. after having learned that is
8:29 am
a lot as the crowds that were lost and the houses that were lost where we don't have that clearance to go to help people. for many years the annual rainfall in this region is 800 millimeters but people have seen the level exceeding 1000 millimeters in the past few years in another part we have so much of this flood during the rainy season and farmers cannot cultivate in the dry season we are getting so much of dryness and from the southern part we also have so much of flood . the floods and droughts are partly to blame for fighting between farmers and cattle herders hundreds have been killed in the region in the battle for land and water. but for fisherman these are good times. with village streets and roads becoming new fishing ground even temporarily there is

8:50 am
latest from the u.n. is the u.k. about to break seats from the iran nuclear deal there is great confusion after comments made in interviews by prime minister boris johnson in which he said it was a bad deal that needs renegotiating and that president trump was the man to do so. trump was quick to seize on what appeared to be a change in u.k. policy oh i respect boris a lot i am not at all surprised that he was the 1st one to come out and say that later though this statement is clarification the prime minister supports the jay c.p.o. way that's the iran nuclear deal the iranians are currently in compliance and we need to bring them back into compliance. it all comes at a time of growing tension the u.k. france and germany have now joined the u.s. in declaring that iran was responsible for the drone attacks on saudi arabia's oil installations meanwhile iran's foreign minister mohammed job it zarif says

8:53 am
wants a deal with with iran and in the end he's going to turn on the europeans and they're going to be left out in the cold so this is a really calculated calculated policy that trump is pursuing and the europeans are really now on full display for their weakness they can't even protect what they said was their landmark diplomatic achievement with iran which was in their utmost national security interests the whole process really is in tatters. at the un for a climate change summit to try to prevent a global irreversible catastrophe the summit part of the general assembly countries to accelerate reforms a new u.n. report has found that commitments to cut greenhouse gases must be at least tripled in order to meet the goals of the 2015 paris agreement at least 66 countries have sworn to be carbon neutral by 2050 but 14 nations they represent a quarter of global emissions have refused to improve their current climate plans

way past that now climate change is happening and it is affecting things around the world so now we're in this new in and out of adapt but that doesn't mean though that we can just ignore the prevention that every day that we prevent. more and more missions being emitted the worse things are getting so it needs to be a 2 pronged attack at this we need to be caught in the missions even more urgently while we now live mitigating the effects of the impacts of climate change that are here let me bring you clear feral in london you've got people on the streets you've got young people talking about all of this but is there really anything that an organization like yours can do it seems to be that it might be too late it might be time to adapt just trusted you to the new reality that we found ourselves in. well. yes i think that the situation in that you know such that
9:26 am
the scientific community don't actually know them certainty when different things will happen in terms of the way that this is going to play out. there is a great complexity to the things that we are trying to model and that people are trying to project. the rigor of that work is very much appreciated by people except for 1000000000 but it's important that we recognize that we're in a very high risk situation this is a risk assessment moment i think and indeed there is a need for mitigation and adaptation and a lot of the adaptation is going to be social and to be honest emotional and psychological that people need to get their heads around the fact that we are guaranteed now i think to pass on a worst life to the next generation every every successive generation we don't have any precedent for that we don't them somehow to do that so yes the challenge it's huge. it's not to say that it's useful or i think acceptable to say that you know
9:27 am
the time has passed and we've missed the boat you can't stop anything from happening we can still prevent things from being the absolute worst case scenario and and in my opinion it's absolutely important that we don't sort of writings are by saying it's too late also 6 we're ready has been set up in a way i think to see ahead the potential for the social and political conditions that can lead to things like fascism resource scarcity displacement of millions of people there's going to be war there's going to be famine people are going to suffer and so arguing the case to direct democracy now is hopefully a preventative measure of those things emerging but how do you keep claiming your optimism when you hear somebody like sharon george say actually you know there are drastic measures we need to take how do you keep europe as in how do you how do you sell that autumn is into you know people who could potentially be extinction
9:28 am
rebuild rebellion supporters i mean it's quite hard is that. but it's not about being optimistic because. she holds a huge amount of hope and let's be honest you know i've lived my entire life with a organize a campaign a and a sustainability practitioner and educator and i feel. very strangely liberated by the context of our life right now because i think it's fair to say that for me it seems there's nothing else really worth working on some people think that will have social club so then 10 years even in the u.k. so what other work is that it to. bring people together in the community i want to bring some an old token hit from brussels sun we get told so often the we need to as individuals do something stop using plastic bottles single use plastics we need
9:29 am
to cut down on the amount you draw if you will we need to there are measures we can do as individuals but that's not enough is it the question of like to ask you is this is about legislation legislation legislation is and this is about big international organizations the u.n. the e.u. actually putting in place legislation putting in place international law that can be that is achievable and that can be enforced. definitely i mean we all have a role to play but if we're really going to to to get out of this mess and tackle climate change we it's government has to play their part and bring in these laws and bring in the policies that we need to see and also the private sector as well but we know unless government brings in those policies the parties had one tags and so. that's what we're trying to do which would force the court knows that we have really bring in new ambitious policies a new laws they're going to help get us out of this mess but the bottom line of all of this i mean is that businesses won't change unless they see
9:30 am
a profit in it so there has to be you know a halfway kind of measure you know businesses still have to make money but we still have to try and do what we care yeah business is to say that i think we're going to have to take people just as much as profits now but also it's not going to be profit for profitable to burn fossil fuels in the long run it just won't be i'll give an example of some work that we did recently in poland we bought shares in a company called ennia which wanted to build a new coal fired power plant there in poland and we bought some shares and took a shareholder case against that company and forced them to stop building a call for a power plant and as soon as we want to a case their share price went up 4 percent which showed that the market agreed with the bill burning fossil fuels is not going to be profitable so there's a huge huge environmental risk to burning fossil fuels and carrying on as business as usual but also there's a financial risk to these companies that big continue to bury their heads in the
9:31 am
sand and not take action so yeah we need government to force them to our bodies probably communities have got any sense they'd be doing the right thing already cheryl i see you nodding your head in agreement there but it must be very difficult as a scientist to actually put forward a plan to big environmental agencies to big world governments agencies like the un for example and get everybody to sign up to it i mean that must be frustrating for the scientific community. it's hugely frustrating we've been saying we've been warning about this for decades and it's almost now we're in this situation of a told you so and what from a scientific point of view if you see any problem through the lens of technology or this isn't a technology problem we know that we technically we can solve this by cutting emissions are simple the problem here is economic and social socially that's changing now we see movements like the extension rebellion moving toward an
9:32 am
ordinary people who would not normally protest put voting with we're through through the means of protest so the problem lies with the economics and there are new business opportunities that will emerge out of these but there are economic impacts of doing nothing and we are going to see massive changes in things like you know the ability to grow food flowed in massive environmental impacts through flooding worldwide if we're even if we stick to the $1.00 target which is going to be massively difficult now to achieve because we've left it so long that every day we leave it's going to be harder to achieve if we even if we just stick to that the amount of sea level rise that we predict is going to affect millions of people around the world to live near to those coasts and cities the. locate towards the near to those coast the economic damage that's going to occur
9:33 am
even if we stick to the ambitious target is going to be it's going to rack up and is somewhere we're going to have to meet that cost financially. i was only a decade ago people thought environmentalists were funny tree huggers you know they were a bit you know not quite serious about the way the world worked extension of extinction rebellion has changed that slightly and there is much more kind of activists but you've still got a problem where large businesses and world leaders are dismissive of what you're asking for how do you change those mines or do you even bother do you even bother with the business community do you even bother with you know governments. well the business community exists you know governments exist what we're proposing as our top demand would be for citizens assemblies to be formed can take these. deliberative and well informed processes forward in order to make different
9:34 am
decisions that currently our governments quite frankly are not capable of you know their lobby there are vested interests we haven't seen the make any of the right decisions in fact in the u.k. they consistently drafted and enforce policy which consistently makes everything much much worse they've acted against the common interest almost every turn in terms of the environment secure this government that we have at the moment so i think you know to say that we want to ignore them isn't isn't true but we certainly want to see power given to people that are capable of making very different decisions and as for the business community you know how the we've had a very well opposed to perception recently might know that we've done a lot of actions around fashion week and around the fashion industry we've been invited to round tables in the house of commons and to other meetings with people in business to talk to them very real have a very real conversation basically about what the situation is and i think that
9:35 am
respectful in on any level with people who hold any power in our society is super important and that's what we're about is nonviolence respects and you know positive engagement with reality which is hope what we're bringing to the table whether or not we can turn around the people quickly enough or ask people to make the right decisions then you know that remains to be same because of course since we launched it made a huge impact but only really on the rhetoric. not only emissions and not on biodiversity loss which is so space is heading for total total catastrophe potentially within our lifetime one of the. people whose mind you definitely need to change is the u.s. president donald trump i want to bring in simon when you have such a powerful man the leader of the free world he calls himself i mean how do you when this man says we're ripping up the climate change agreements we saw on the
9:36 am
restricted to business they restrictive to growth how do you get your message out to somebody like that to the people who support him who say actually you know maybe you guys on telling the truth and you're making out to be a lot bleaker than it actually is. well i think you have to stick to the evidence and stick to the science and i think extinction rebellion and threat of the homework in the school strikes and all the people out there protesting across the world. the past year and of the past week the pattern last friday that we saw deserve huge huge credit and i think they've driven i think they've driven this issue roy of the political agenda and yes it's only in the rhetoric of the moment but we've got to keep that pressure because the only way we have going to get anything meaningful actually through this pressure and i think. they deserve a lot of credit for them in terms of donald trump you have to try and take people with you and appeal to the evidence and to the answer and to the facts and you know he's he's the president yes he's very powerful but you can still take action and
9:37 am
small legal action against more different things that will stop him doing what he's trying to do and i think. you know china are starting to take action now on climate change other countries too and he's very isolated on that world stage and yes it's you know it's terrible they pulled us out of paris but there's an election next year and hopefully we'll be able people be able to make the case that climate change action on climate change is one of those issues that deserves to be to be to be so voted on and you know heard some of us want to have a follow up question with you because i'm very interested in this kind of legal action that you guys taking and this idea that you can buy shares in a particular power plant and get them to change their behavior is that is that working on a micro level is this working on a much larger level with other organizations doing the same thing. well if you take our cases on air pollution and we've we've been the u.k. government now 3 times in core we've also won
9:38 am
a number of high profile cases in german cities and one that was meant as the. government's had to bring in policies that aren't good enough by any means but they brought in policies that is basically going to lead to the phase that diesel vehicles and euro and diesel vehicles are harmful to our health but they continue to be manufactured will billy remember the the volkswagen scandal yet the mark in these really is dropped drastically not party to the scandal it's partly due to the fact that governments are now having to take action applications so what we'd like to see is the action that we take would lead to a ripple effect so. we're taken action on coal fired power plants across europe we're trying to get them shut down or at least cleaned up in greece in germany remain here. and we hope you know victory in one control alito the policy changes in others and and push that world and in our own way to towards to tackling this issue and i think you need i think the issue of the problem of climate change in
9:39 am
the disaster of climate change is far too big for any one movement or any one organization to be able to to to deal with it it's going to take everybody coming together to do their part to try and achieve that change and that's how we'll get that change and sun earth has got a huge role to play but it's only a small welcome has everything everybody else as well so what we're saying then is like a 3 pronged strategy that you guys almost represent you have the legal action and the business community you have activism and we have science sharing george and kill those that film a few years ago lawson where. i think matt damon gets stuck on mars and he says i'm going to have to silence the s. out of this to try and survive is there a scientific solvable is there something the science community could do rather than say it's all doom and gloom and we can't really change anything we need to adapt. i think this is this is a think it's got it's got the there's solution lies and lots of different things the problem isn't just one thing making this problem we've we've got emissions
9:40 am
coming from transport we've got emissions committee from electricity production we've got. from food production so we can all individually have an impact on waste in less you know we talk about fast fashion we can try and buy more ethically and we can we can do things like lobby our governments to do things are on on a more on a big a scale and increase the level of electricity and energy from renewables the other thing is not a national planting trees say they want to deforestation that's happened so that just planted you know that the recommendation from the i.p.c.c. report was to plant you know millions of trades that could make a massive deference to see question that carbon is in the atmosphere so there are things that we can do but it's not going to be one thing it's going to be lots and lots of different things but you can't plug trees because somebody like balloons
9:41 am
here or the leader of brazil says actually you're messing with my my economy by doing this and i actually was quite straight with mccrone when mccrone said they were going to get money it was like this is our economy that you're messing with everybody still thinks as an individual country nobody thinks globally on this and that's a big problem for all of you when it comes to trying to sell this message but to the scientific community because you know the evidence is there but you're still coming up against the economy. yes and that this is a historic think we've been we've been banging on about the evidence the evidence is there for decades now and now we have so with the planting trades you've got the food fuel debate if you've got if you want to go towards bio fields you've got issues around well with the ethics of growing those biofuels and the food fuel debate them so i mean that fundamentally the problem is we've put too much pressure on the resources in the planet we have and we're not managing those resources in
9:42 am
the way that sustainable you know i've always strongly believed scientifically that we have enough resources that we have enough you know we can we can draw more energy from renewable to to support ourselves if we manage our resources sensibly and that's what's not happening globally and it's going to take a lot that the likes of presidents around the world and leaders to step up to that and really take the scientific evidence and look at the the social impact and come up with a coherent plan that's going to be ambitious and difficult but i think people are ready to get behind that. now we are running out of time but i do want to ask one question to all 3 of your begin with you simon in brussels what do you want out of this un climate change conference what other the big things that you'd like to see happen we would like to see national governments making ambitious actions. phasing out fossil fuels from their economies of us action on transport those drugs action
9:43 am
are hasn't said to the proper concrete policies and proper ambition not like what we saw in germany of the weekend which is a pretty pathetic plan a plan that had plans to carry on but burning coal or into the future that's not the right thing to do what we want to see is ambitious policies that shows they listen to the public they listen to people's concerns and they get this message and they're going to take action clitheroe would you like to see from this un climate change conference. well it's hard to say isn't it because you know and internationally gauche asians have been absolutely terrifyingly ineffectual and it does seem to me that using only. only science as a sort of guide and then allowing sort of politics and economics to come in and say that's unrealistic for the economy that would be better for our economies keep things same it's all sort of to do with an attachment to what exists now and sort of lack of imagination for what the future could look like but i guess what i would
9:44 am
say is the commitment 1st stop the harm would be my what i would long to say so a stop on day forestation a whole on searching for hard to find fossil fuels. all of the things that we're actively making worse which when you know we haven't even stopped making the harm worse it gets worse every single day so that would be the 1st thing to stop the harm and then to commit to begin the repair but it needs a very very different. you know approach intellectual and emotional. george what would you like to see. say a stop on any subsidy that supports fossil fuels and i'd like to say more subsidy for renewables and low carbon technologies and tree planting and have attacked and i think with government star sub putting money behind those negatives
9:45 am
and taxing those those initiatives that are more harmful then i think the those economies all find themselves. thank you very much to all our guests. in london and in brussels and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting a website dot com and for further discussion go to a facebook page facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story and you can also join the conversation on twitter handle is at a.j. inside story for me and the whole team hey you know.

9:49 am
out the possibility of negotiating a new deal with the remaining sick the trees diplomatic edge and space has the latest from the u.n. . is the u.k. about to break seats from the iran nuclear deal there is great confusion after comments made in interviews by prime minister boris johnson in which he said it was a bad deal that needs renegotiating and that president trump was the man to do so years trump was quick to seize on what appeared to be a change in u.k. policy oh i respect boris a lot and i am not at all surprised that he was the 1st one to come out and say that later though this statement is clarification the prime minister supports the j c p o a that's the iran nuclear deal the iranians aren't currently in compliance and we need to bring them back into compliance. it all comes at a time of growing tension the u.k. france and germany have now joined the u.s.

9:54 am
the missing young government perspective the iraqi troop and was considered a good deal. in the article you were on the. way to your school grief. we have a mismatch between the way we magine war to be and the reality of the 21st century can we do a little more could we find someone and we do it for boredom really don't mean you get what you came from. b.b.c. world service and u.s. troops have left iraq america continues to maintain
9:55 am

10:02 am
gun to shoot those who qualified need gun run. companies risk on common contract as my mom wanted them. for example have been for some would find.
10:03 am
the private military industry is a part of how the country is in fights wars today. u.s. government doesn't track the number of contractors it uses in places iraq or afghanistan we know it's a lot. we don't really know exactly how many. i spent several years working within the industry i have a military background and one of the differences between being a soldier i found and being a private military contractor is that when you work for the u.s. military or any military you take a sacred oath that you're going to serve and fight for your country and necessary die to protect a way of life one that you believe in i am an american soldier i'm
10:04 am
a warrior and a member of a team. that will never accept defeat. at least i will never win i'll never leave a fallen comrade it's the complete opposite in a private military world you look at the budget 1st the loyalty of these companies and these businessmen's change depending on market forces. we operate in the world's challenging complex emerging markets the middle east is absolutely cool for other business today. the sooner we can are in pal and we perform in the right in. this industry is not just what you see is what you get. when you see a company you don't know exactly who's working for them they hire and they sometimes create what we call subs sub contractors.
10:05 am
there's been commanders in afghanistan who just simply said we don't know the subs of the subs the subs are. so you have all these like layers of a contract. level 40 control starts to fade quickly the deeper you go from the top to the bottom. united states army and the military in general is so reliant on the private sector i would call that dependency but we don't know who's the on the ground presence of
10:06 am
these companies overseas we just don't know. it's crazy or not surely it's really crazy in iraq. because since the fed i stepped my fits in iraq every did that was a bomb and they bombed the village there is a rockets. every day we have rockets fired. every day how to gunshots every day a bomb in income an income in only good if someone's you know what soups and it's damage for all of our guts 4 of the civil union guys well trained guys. as soon as i originally rock i called my mom i said mom i'm in iraq she said oh. i
10:07 am
said i'm in iraq no no you're kidding i said no moment i'm in iraq i said mom just watch the number what's the number and she watched the number. she was she was just she was yelling oh daddy. i said no mom there is no problem here we are saved we are not using weapons we are you here is does our views my mom i said we are doing just domestic walk in iraq she told all the neighbors around so my son he's in iraq you know he's doing in cooking joe not in the in that we were born. just after the war and surveil you know i couldn't make it up because there was no job i didn't. and my friend calls me it's told me that's a. very civic and see they were recruiting guys so-called so it's not so
10:08 am
iraq if you just use weapons and we are well trained in it come. comply on. the 1st time i arrive to to this training camp come plan i have together with it to see white men found from the security company. where driving out in this small track and what's towards the camp through this forest a landscape not so far away from from the airport and when we enter the camp and get out of the car the 1st thing we see is this
10:09 am
a gun an instructor was and shouts of the training out there making sure we could say lined up in order to receive these guys from the past security company. their work my care for iraq was. written back in from iraq you said that he needed. it what a shallow fighter who supposed to go to iraq not on ice you know who those who know basic weapons uses only people that you can't be fighting between iraq. from a shell young government perspective the iraqi crude and was considered a quite good deal in the sense that they could actually take you know good troublemakers something away to back for a couple of years. and then returning them after 2 years with money and from the overseas deployment this could surf to stabilize security in ca on.
10:10 am
in the beginning of the training course the one other real weapons presence so they're using this i wouldn't sticks. it was fast after a couple of days and so the training that the weapons and arrived there while being lined up at these wooden tables within in the middle of the big camp. it was this tension and excitement those attention mainly because now it's actually
10:11 am
getting into something very real ok. for many of the crew this isn't the 1st time holding a weapon since the ending of the civil war. many were starting to shake and some were even starting to cry when the when the sioux got the weapons and not being able to to handle them. that day any day i will provide a compliant backing for iraq when our. memories come back from the past as that we've sort of to know when i'm seeing this man until. most notable for now it's. a device.
10:12 am
which i was supposed to have when i guess i said. i did not quite get what. i survive and i live where point. this young on what has been forth mainly by young converts. looking for young men to perform military jobs the chance of a quite good that they have also been. owes it to. but you
10:13 am
never can mean. it took my fight to them with any putting under the rug. to leave. me. give you a. talking about. to keep. right. on. no.
10:14 am
need to watch the old surely die to have the money to a few 1000 officers if not god every day remember. he my father you my word i who next i get i would keep. this it's little i'm going to be sad. i said no i don't want a tree so i start to i go to. stuck in my boat. my boat is that bond in my own it's in order and drop just as it is just to cry and for more to come make you forget about you or your motor so i start says. cool in my heart.
10:15 am
when i was young. at a lot of things that i've been scindia. not a day which is not good for human being. or because. of the job have you come undone when does it go the people you have to go to bed then you don't go dutch you 2 have been killed. when we think of war and the warrior who fights we have this image that our mind of a man and uniform.
10:16 am
and uniform means they're fighting as part of a military serving a nation because if they fight for their force political patriotism and yet when you look at the wars of the 21st century they don't match those assumptions anymore now we have outsourced a lot of our warfare to private military companies. the background of this changing nature of war and who fights it that dates back to the very start of the private military industry itself as. i am. until the early ninety's the need for security in street is a doctor murky industry. outright mercenaries who were bringing down governments for the cash can you explain what
10:17 am
exactly sound fine internationally is and what you do innit. sunline. is a company that provides military consultancy services for governments or large corporations . at the time the idea was to get very posh english officers on top of these private military companies and tim spicer was an officer in the military and british military he got out and was asked to come help with a company called sandline. to spices a rival gave an almost instant sense of respectability to what had previously been a mess in the world and i don't personally have any difficulty would mostly i just don't like the image that comes out in most people's mind the 1st time it was interviewing him for a newspaper he's charming public school educated goal itself and that needed to be
10:18 am
a feature they construe before they change the agenda global agenda almost profit your company was. tim spicer was considered a respectable head of a mercenary organization but at 1st his business affairs didn't go too well he was dogged by failure for example he got a phone call from a fellow indian with a thai passport who was under house arrest for a financial scandal and he contacted tim spicer and wanted him to restore the president of sierra leone. once the president surely and was back in power this guy would then get his contracts for diamonds and be able to make money . but it didn't work out that way. the companies run by chip spicer's vote on
10:19 am
a couple 100 distribution by customs and excise and he's accused of smuggling weapons illegally. when a private firm gets involved in foreign politics for the benefit of a criminal you have to stop and ask ok did this really happen or is this the fictitious you know james bond type story but it was a true story. these things tended to happen says tim spicer a couple of times that he'd always somehow managed to get assigned the recently retired british cannot do that a band of ministers is safely back in this country so has this put him up his new career as a hired gun are you going to continue with this new new business of heroes sandline international well i think we've got a number of lessons to learn from this particular. episode i think that we will continue to try and develop our business as long as we can do it in a. so what. sandline
10:20 am
eventually collapsed under the weight of bad publicity the was that of idea in the short term you can say that was also a successful company in terms of delivering an enormous amount of money to its shelves and so forth to firstly it launched to spice on a career where he was able to found what would then become one of the most significant for the movie companies in the world. he just. was. cool. al-jazeera will meet. with roots in the middle east both build successful lawyer so rule over the last 5 years i've achieved
10:21 am
a great deal of partnership with the country's leading promises the never forgot where they came from. we tried to put forward a different takes on the stereotypical image of muslim women arabs aboard the businesswoman of the council on al-jazeera. this is a really fabulous news from one of the best i've ever worked in there is a unique sense of bonding where everybody teams in but something i feel every time i get on the chair every time i interview someone well often working round the clock to make sure that we bring events as i currently as possible to the viewer that's what people expect of us and that's what i think we really do well. maclagan. weaponized through out history was transported me and
10:22 am
started fighting developed by nation state there could be enough to. know within reach of those seeking. the most toxic substances. invisible thread on al-jazeera. had i missed. with the headlines on al-jazeera the u.k. france and germany say it's clear that iran bears responsibility for the attacks on saudi oil facilities this month the european leaders met on the sidelines of the un general assembly in new york where british prime minister barak's johnson hinted that the u.k. may withdraw from the 2015 iran u.k. deal is present from right he said there was a bad deal it wasn't a great deal iran was was and is behaving disruptively in the region
10:23 am
and i think it's one guy who can do a better deal one guy who can on the 100 stands how to get a difficult part like iraq over the over the line and that is the present the united while while they have gathered at the united nations for a climate summit to try to prevent a global irreversible catastrophe they've been told that greenhouse gas commitments must be at least tripled to meet the goals of the 2015 paris agreement. and on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly u.s. president donald trump has praised egypt's leader abdel fattah el-sisi saying he's brought order to his country and follows days of rare anti-government protests in several egyptian cities human rights activists say the police surrounded up more than 400 people in response to the rallies you can. you always find something like this in our region especially with political islam there has been an effort for
10:24 am
many years to make sure that this political islam has a role on the political arena however at this part of the world will remain in a state of instability and as long as political islam is there you know i'm not i'm not concerned with. egypt there's a great leader highly respected he's brought order before he was here with very little order there was chaos so i'm not worried that. all 3 u.s. congressional committees of threatened to push ahead with trying to obtain documents relating to president trump's dealings with ukraine trump is coming under fire over reports that he urged ukraine's president to investigate the son of joe biden the u.s. president has blocked congress from obtaining a whistle blower's complaint former u.s. vice president biden is seen as a potential rival to trump in the 2020 presidential election well those are the headlines join me for more news here after pop 2 child soldiers reloaded stay with
10:25 am
us. centuries it was the remoteness of brazil's indigenous communities the protected them from the rapacious outside walls now is what shields those who are encroaching on protected indigenous territory starting fires and threatening the residents of the county when i had this 1st contact with the outside walls in 1978 and what i catch eager to contaminate your language translated for us into portuguese remembers it well she says they brought diseases that decimated the community. a couple years we had a lot of land and we lived peacefully really with fear that are very few firsts the invaders are coming closer it's difficult to gauge why a place so remote so tranquil should not so so much to the rest of the walls indigenous people who live here the would realize this but now is the smoke fills the skies and the ashes pollute the river the rest of the world is beginning to realize it too.
10:26 am
when 911 occurred everything changed. the contractor content of the armed forces went up astronomically at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq. ideologically republicans my party wanted every single public function to be scrutinized analyzed evaluated and if possible privatized general shinseki the head of the us army at the time testified to congress and said if we're going to do iraq it's going to take several 100000
10:27 am
u.s. troops and very quickly the rest of the bush administration reacted negatively he's absurd that's crazy it's not going to require those amount of troops and they actually simply drummed him out of the military it turned out he was right we did deploy several 100000 forces it was just through private military. so in the early days of iraq it was a gold rush you had companies coming out of nowhere including blackwater who was really like a cowboy wes where nobody had any control anybody doing anything with fire arms in this country to say their private military company. was an a.t.m.
10:28 am
for these companies the basic idea of a contractor versus recruiting. training in supporting military vets is that there is room hiring a prostitute or getting married. so instead of a soldier who has an x. cost of a year now being a contractor who's being paid $8.00 times 10. well what has happened is that america has basically married a prostitute and has been active in them for a very long period of time is almost sure to be a. good example of. it's nothing but a country is going to be a good thing. but none of you know right just searching around ok i'm working. on this so we will get a real movies where it's very. contractors offer some gray area benefits to politicians everybody's concerned like we have
10:29 am
a 1000 boots the ground nobody ever asks how many contractors there is don't like our goods on the ground here so if the us military wanted to put 1000 boots on the ground and there's 4000 contractors it's a way of you know having a force of 5000 but without politically risk. that we. should meet. you're shooting at you know it's you yes yeah it was not. intended and bang bang so you did did you get a skirt shoot 1st of it shot in front of you know you can reduce shade his car. and that's exactly. right this is only right. if. the security companies had the sensitivity of something that civilians would often
10:30 am
if not always. get caught in the crossfire. what governments have always done is they would do 2 things at once. you fight and you win hawks and mines. private and she took it didn't do that. try this comes on the ground opening fire they were very very noticeable they would play rock music that in this was not there was no subtlety 6 this was not a even the military will most discreet in the private security companies and so they were as they were very very public slap in the face for the average iraqi on a daily basis. the. a real problem for the military so we sell
10:31 am
the contractor presence in iraq in particular but afghanistan too was becoming contrary to what the mission was for the armed forces therefore their presence was more danger than it was help them. no need to. move. the bodies turned around and traffic circle. their truck really trying to get. the problem was that we had all of these different private military companies running around we outsourced too quickly and they weren't coordinated both in contract terms but also in on the ground operational terms so what is your answer to a problem of outsourcing. outsource more we outsourced it to a private military company to coordinate.
10:32 am
did you see a contract in iraq that was to oversee the communication and coordination for all of the private security companies on the ground. in effect it make that they were the general in charge of all of the private contractors. now that point the u.s. military was the largest machine presence in iraq but if you added together all of the private military contractors spies it was effectively in charge of the 2nd largest on force in iraq. the prisons in iraq was relatively stable for years one. video which was posted on you tube from the contract who is. following
10:33 am
a gun while playing rock music. being . released. but no legal actions were taken. very rapidly each is such a machine huge company. and it made to spy certain extremely healthy man. a majority of americans now think it was a mistake to go to war in iraq public support for the war is falling war americans want the troops to come home. in a brief ceremony on a base on the edge of baghdad the united states took down the flag of its command
10:34 am
here to mark the end of the military mission. the u.s. money was starting to be pulled out of the iraqi. field operations and the industry had to go through a very complicated reset. those companies had to realize that they weren't going to get that level of money again and so they had to offer a different. deals. that meant they would have to hire cheap the soldiers. let me. know when the loophole to war so.
10:35 am
i was 104 what i learned about me is that you. 'd never know who goes on and on your last one the cool. i had to google google woman and don't want to go so mad. and. if your god will. always use you achieve monitor not only to give you a hard to go shop your food would have done it. by going to business and but once going to the movie. and that just ends missing on image. of a local group. who
10:36 am
got. on explain what you mean. in the initial story. if the long sleeve could see. we don't want to manually them which. made them all we. can do the access. to the. courts before homs. innocent people. drop bits.
10:37 am
sometimes there will give you just our march earth which is not some shop we are by even if you've got. a little whatsoever depressing can feel it more than you expected you know that. you. destroyed the life. i think when i was just.
10:38 am
all work undertaken by egypt is carried out to high standards of fresh milk competence and integrity when we 1st started into theater we were briefed on peruvian and colombian guards and the natural question you ask is so what do you pay for these folks and you know at the time and i'm playing off memory cells but i'm pretty good at that that was about a $1000.00 to $1200.00 and them oh i don't know 6 months a year ago it became. god and guards at about $800.00 a month and we don't ask the question of security companies because of those lowest price technically acceptable rushed to the bottom that's what some call. white
10:39 am
whale gone it's now versus proving some columbia i'm sorry so we don't have a chance to get the award unless we use a garden's because there are $2.00 to $400.00 less him out on this most recent trip that the company that is winning all the awards that had this let's 1st start heard of well we've got a good strategy we're using sierra leonean so you asked the question so so what are we paying informants but $250.00 a month. well you know i guess rhetorically i don't expect it answered you know can we go a little lower could we find someone it's like we'll do it for boardroom you know that is such a terrible country that maybe they'll just go out of the country and be a free security guard i mean that's pretty inexpensive if i say that it sounds facetious but it's real. you know what will you get what you pay for.
10:40 am
the original goal was not to bring soldiers or exogenous from the poorest countries on earth but the u.s. system requires that you pick the lowest bidder so that became the status quo in iraq to have multiple layers of foreigners as long as you're in the army and you meet certain criteria and sometimes you don't have to be in there meet to meet this criteria. companies self interest is different than national self interest companies are profit maximizes what they do that's natural. born or made right now. what do you do if you know you have somebody from the philippines working for an american private all try company in afghanistan to kill somebody what jurisdiction does that person fall
10:41 am
under we don't know. 'd 'd in about 15 countries i've been involved in programs to reintegrate children who have served in armed forces. it's a contradiction in terms on the one hand western countries have pumped large sums of money into the reintegration of former child soldiers but now we have governments like us supporting these so-called security companies that recruit people and continue their exposure to violence and cement their identities as
10:42 am
perpetrators of violence as soldiers that make it impossible to ever reintegrate into civilian life. at one time when they came into account. to kill a lot of. hours on top of the time. looking down we had to explain. i think when people are dying on the street. the explosion is all over the city and off any time had a gunshot had a bomb or watch a very explosion i think about my colleagues who was happens you have before.
10:43 am
when you brought you back. to the 1st team what. for force. the the. ship docks and i remember. school deceased's wall and this is what's happening in sudan you're seeing. you. really don't. know. if you're running in a calm and candid. fighting for what's out or lights or whatever you fight you for you've got. the i feel your is that you often don't use you know it's not going well it's because a lot of. justice you don't have to.
10:44 am
it may seem like an act of free well it is not young people in sierra leone have no jobs they're desperate to feed themselves and their families and result is that it becomes harder and harder to ever find their way back into civilian life and they may plant seeds of violence wherever they go. it is well known that young people who have extensive histories of violence and being fed drugs and manipulated over time to develop problems of impulsivity high levels of aggression. you know we pride ourselves on being a moral people trying to do the right thing what we're doing is we're exploiting people using young people who've been child soldiers deliberately sending them into the jaws of combat and further violence nothing could be worse for these young people nothing could be worse for security.
10:45 am
there's a close connection between this this industry and policymakers. these private military firms really poach a retired general officer as an admiral from the armed forces. because they have connections. and i know.
10:46 am
i say that it sounds facetious but it's real. no you get what you pay for. the private security industry will continue to act for governs and you're going to see private companies in the tree and aging in warfare.
10:47 am
people care a lot a dead soldier or dead marine shows up in this country and we start asking ourselves why did they die why do what were they fighting for nobody bothers to ask about that contractors. every american who serves joins an unbroken line of heroes i am awed by their sacrifice. men in good time and no allowance and i'm going to lie have not i'm not i'm not a fool if i do any kind of good our men have family coming down you. know who to be got in on to me what they need to guide.
10:48 am
there's no one going to go out and protest in the streets of a contractor's kill. country still exercises its foreign policy the use of force and violence in these 4 regions but is using proxies contractors 3rd country nationals and in obscuring their role. you say how did you get into it in the rack i do some missions here when in the afghanistan it's really your money and your tax money. doing it but make sure that politicians don't get in trouble.
10:49 am
private military contractors makes a decision to go to war a lot easier. as part of ending a war responsibly is standing by those who fought it.
10:50 am
