5:02 am
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 as president from the right is it was a bad deal it wasn't a great deal iran was was and is behaving disruptively in the region and i think is one guy who can do a better deal 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 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. in declaring that iran was responsible for the drone attacks on saudi arabia's oil
5:03 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 hormuz 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 but the u.n. umbrella addresses a number of consensus because the u.n. umbrella dresses disparities in size power. he's a but. he's just about it isn't always do even if you do the 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 0 at the united nations. i spoke to
5:04 am
harry mann leverett he's a former white house and u.s. state department official she says european leaders have failed to protect the 2015 iran nuclear deal. there is no proof the french the british and the germans are not even waiting for a un 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 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 to our peril nobody is really interested in continuing with the iran nuclear deal the 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
5:05 am
a multilateral deal he is interested in by lateral deals where the u.s. has overwhelming leverage against the party that it's negotiating with so trump 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. well there at the u.n. for a climate change summit to try to prevent a global irreversible catastrophe the summit's part of the general assembly countries to accelerate reforms a new u.n. report has found commitments to cut greenhouse gases must be at least tripled to meet the goals of the 25th day in paris agreement now at least 66 countries have signaled their intent to achieve a net 0 carbon dioxide emissions by 2050 but 14 nations and they represent

5:26 am
right in the line you see through here has more or less gone and what's coming out of tibetan plateau is the remains of the southwest monsoon of india which is on its way out but he is the last big 4 it goes so as wall not to be humid all the way from shanghai to tomko and west woods there is rain in sichuan but it probably will make no further eastward progress is going slowly south the same can be said of the rain band for the southeast go big holes and it looks ceased you might guess in daily shout developing in the central philippines for example in thailand in sumatra the certain conglomeration of potential for showers or thunderstorms in singapore sumatra back towards morning a crushing being in the mix all the time it's still dry season in indonesia and it's like and stay for a bit longer as it should. so that monsoon i was talking about the one the receding certainly is but it's been give me a loss or very recently in this general line from the pole towards an all points south in fact there's
5:27 am
a warning just been issued for sri lanka for the potential for heavy rain for the next 2 or 3 days so this particular picture of a receding monsoon a very wet one. it was sponsored by qatar and. this is a dialogue which you decide not to have children to say that it's what the stake is really human survival everyone has a voice but i'll start with our community because of course this is a debate and it's a heated one this is a little b.h. and literally before you do a ph and i fully join the global conversation with people i think if only they knew what is happening to we were muslims they will be with us and they will be outraged on al-jazeera. through these doors we want the influences the experts my special guests. on these pews will sit and informed audience and my distinguished problem

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 side. lines of the u.n. general assembly in new york where british prime minister barak strong sent hinted that the u.k. may withdraw from the 2015 iran nuclear deal. at the u.n. for a climate change summit to try to prevent a global irreversible catastrophe they have been told that greenhouse gas commitments must be at least tripled in order to meet the goals of the 2015 paris agreement jonah hill has been following developments from the united nations. i'm announcing that earlier this morning we have filed an official complaints under the convention on the rights of the child's. weld leaders don't like being told what to do much less by a group of school children including a certain swedish teenager who decided to take them to court my name is to get the
5:30 am
timber and i am 16 years old and i'm doing this because well it is off failing to protect the rights of the child by continue to ignore the climate crisis a summit on climate change is the centerpiece of this year's general assembly and grettir totenberg it stand strong not everyone is a fan though it's a shift in emphasis 1st secretary general antonio tennis who came to office focusing on conflict resolution but instead has watched peace escape the likes of syria yemen and libya with a new cold flick looming in the gulf it is that sense of urgency but i have to say the secretary general didn't do it alone i think all you had to do is watch the millions of people especially young people that were in the streets on friday and the secretary general's fully aware that he may have been speaking but in the back there were millions of young people screaming and pushing and demanding action that
5:31 am
it takes children to call world leaders to account on something like climate change says a lot about the state of global diplomacy as it does about the ever more elusive search for consensus that the u.n. and this vast gathering are supposed to be about $193.00 countries represented more than $500.00 side events a blizzard of activity but how much can actually be achieved for the diplomat and u.n. weapons inspector richard butler anyone who walks into an assembly like this and thinks that i can get what i want from it selfishly and take it away put it in my pocket. is not living on the same planet that i'm living on into depend. is the name of the game finding solutions that shoot a larger rather than a smaller number of people is what this place is about and the moral imperative to do so is the key thing that an assembly of this magnitude mobilize the imperative
5:32 am
to act on climate change is not shared by president trump who attended a parallel meeting on religious freedoms instead a deliberate attempt to divert attention from a cause he doesn't believe in critics said an attempt to doesn't appear to have worked jonah al-jazeera at the u.n. in new york. well the brazilian president is due to speak at the u.n. general assembly on tuesday after intense criticism for his handling of the amazon fires in america and its. president jalal sonata will be opening up the general assembly on tuesday in new york but he is conspicuously absent at the special session in which world leaders are supposed to propose concrete ways to combat and counter climate change instead what brazil is doing is launching a brand new very glossy p.r. campaign called brazil by brazil and it says the following the brazil is a modern productive environmentally conscious country sustainable and open to the world and full of opportunities what president also not
5:33 am
a says is that the world our planet needs brazil to feed it both grains and to be produced massively here in the amazon region and that the country has the right to continue to cut down parts at least of forests like the one you see behind me the campaign says that brazil will do this in a sustainable way but no one really called crete examples had been given about how that's going to be done the idea clearly is to try to reverse brazil's tarnished image after the sustained weeks months actually of forest fires but that is going to be a very hard sell. now 3 u.s. congressional committees have threatened to push ahead with trying to obtain documents relating to president donald trump's dealings with ukraine trump is coming under fire over reports he adds ukraine's president to investigate the son of joe biden his administration has blocked congress from obtaining a whistle blowers complaint allegedly detailing the president's actions former u.s.
5:34 am
vice president joe biden is seen as a potential main rival to trump in the 2020 presidential election mike hanna has more from washington d.c. . the chairman of 3 congressional committees have signed a joint letter sent to the secretary of state my pompei are demanding that the transcript of president trump conversation with the ukrainian president be presented to congress in another move as well the house intelligence committee has subpoenaed the acting director of national intelligence to appear before it on thursday to explain why he's been withholding the complaint made by a whistleblower from congress something that congress contends he's legally obliged to do the whole issue has galvanized the debate about impeachment a number of democrats were reluctant to go down that route including the house speaker nancy pelosi arguing that it could be politically explosive however the
5:35 am
latest incident concerning that phone call with the ukraine has 2 more democrats beginning to insist that the impeachment process is the only way to go because a day though is thursday when the acting director of national intelligence is quizzed by members of the house intelligence committee the u.k. is main opposition labor party has pledged to hold a 2nd referendum on bret's it within 6 months of winning an election however the party remains divided on whether it would back leave all remain in such a vote lawrence lee reports from bryson where the party is holding its annual conference. one of the great mysteries of brics 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
5:36 am
socialism in this country or any other country of the imposition has u.r.l. but by the time the brics referendum happens he done what looked like a half hearted about turn 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 to tend that we've got no position now and then. sort of but will definitely
5:37 am
campaign for maybe the future never be except that we're going to campaign 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 on the conference delegates such as the support for kolbe in that speaker after speaker urged them to vote for his position which is not to decide on a bricks at policy until after he becomes prime minister they won and then separately the pro e.u. side lost it as a mole so the story of the day it is surely that the membership of the party people not in this room have not had their views reflected by their own leaders and that does not bode well for corbin lawrence leigh al-jazeera that labor party conference in brighton. now 5 countries have come up with a temporary plan to redistribute the large numbers of refugees and migrants rescued 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 until an
5:38 am
e.u. meeting on october 8th when they hope many more will join the agreement now italy is 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 they say they are unfairly bearing the burden of migrant arrivals so nigger has the latest from burka. it may be one step towards a solution but it's one of the delegates seemed 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 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
5:39 am
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 and 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 our. voices in other countries throughout the european union. the clerk is the representative for the united

nations high commissioner for refugees in greece and 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 samples and this was 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 extremely 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 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
5:41 am
