6:02 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 this 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 jay c.p.o. 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

a former white house and u.s. state department official she says european leaders have failed to protect the 2015 iran nuclear. 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 a multilateral deal he is interested in by lateral deals where the u.s.
6:05 am
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. or world leaders at the un for a climate change summit to try to prevent a global irreversible catastrophe the summit part of the general assembly asks 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 2015 paris agreement at least 66 countries have signaled their intent to achieve net 0 carbon dioxide emissions by 2050 but 40 nations

6:18 am
a says is that the world our planet needs brazil to feed it both grains and beef with our produce 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 really kong corriente examples have been given about how that's going to be done the idea clearly is to try to reverse brazil's tarnished image after these sustained weeks months actually of forest fires but that is going to be a very hard sell 3 u.s. congressional committees have threatened to push ahead and try to obtain documents relating to president donald trump's dealings with ukraine trump is coming under fire over reports the urge ukraine's president to investigate the son of joe biden his administration has brought to congress from obtaining a whistle blower's complaint and legibly detailing the president's actions former

beginning to insist that the impeachment process is the only way to go the key day though is thursday when the acting director of national intelligence is quizzed by members of the house intelligence committee 5 countries have come up with a temporary plan to take in large numbers of refugees and migrants rescued from the mediterranean italy malta france germany and finland which currently holds the e.u.'s presidency have agreed to share rescued asylum seekers the deal will apply until an e.u. meeting on october the 8th when they hope many more states will join the arrangement italy's new interior minister says the idea was that migrants would be sent to various e.u. states within 4 weeks of disembarking using a quota system and those countries would handle their asylum requests. to have consistently refused to allow the rescue vessels to dock they say they're unfairly

bearing the burden of migrant arrivals sonia has the latest from outer. 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 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 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
6:22 am
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. as the representative of the united nations high commissioner for refugees in greece he says other countries must do more than 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 77 times their capacity particularly on the island of some of
