7:00 am
and catch the game of thrones season 7 premiere on july 16th. winter is coming to xfinity. welcome to all of you in united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria coming to you. also, the man behind the story that is rocking the news, what
7:01 am
russia wanted from donald trump jr. was to end the so called sanctions. what are those and why does putincare about them? >> our two nations are forever joined by the spirit of revolution. >> the special election to bastille day. but first, here is my take. the latest revolutions about return shan and donald trump campaign are useful because they might help unfl, which is why has donald trump had such a benign attitude twoords putin. it begs for some kind of
7:02 am
explanation. on foreign policy he has had clear and consistent views for three decades. in 1987 in his first major statement he took out an ad in several newspapers that began. for decades japan and other nations have been taking advantage of the united states this is trump's world view and he has never waivered from it. he added on the former he wrote in his campaign book there are people who wish i wouldn't refer to china as our enemy but that's exactly what that are. someone deeply skeptical towards
7:03 am
other nations and their leaders who believes in a fortres america that minds its own business and basic attitude towards the whole world except for russia. russian money began pouring into the west and its leader. >> look at putin and what's going on over there. he is doing a great job rebuilding the image of russia. >> he admired putin that he imagined the two of them had met is you been able to prove that? when confronted on this he dismissed it saying --
7:04 am
>> a lot of killers. we have a lot of killers. you think our country is so innocent? >> he said -- >>there's nothing i can think of than have russia friendly as opposed to the way they are right now. >> he appointed miked flyn-- mi flynn. paul manafort received millions of dollars from the pro russian party in ukraine. during the republican convention there was a very unusual watering down on russia's invasion of yof ukraine. he had a very close relationship with putin. finally there are the repeated contacts between members of the
7:05 am
trump campaign and family with key russian officials which appears to be unique to russia. it's spobl there are benign explanations for all of this are it is a white christian battling musli muslims. prachs there is some other explanation. this is the puzzle now at the heart of the trump presidency that bob mueller will most likely solve. let's get started.
7:06 am
>> iran came to terms on limiting the nuclear prachlt it is a day many thought would never be reached he is expected to certify that iran has done just that. remember, this is the deal he threatened to rip up, the worst deal ever. he said it was his number one party. joining me good to have you here. >> good to be with you. >> four senators including rubio and ted cruz said iran is not in compliance with the deal and they argue you are still
7:07 am
acquiring snacquir acquiring nuclear materials. you denied access to the facility. you are operating more than allowed. >> we decided to make it the only so monitor the nuclear side of the deal. the united states is the implement its possible bargain. >> which is what? >> for instance, when the white house made the announcement a couple of days ago president trump used his presence in iran
7:08 am
has been complying and has been verified. >> what about the german intelligence reports that say there is acquisition taking place? >> it has verified that is complying. it does not preit is clear and i believe it was the realization
7:09 am
that it could not be taken i way from ie rriran. >> a lot of people wonder about this and they say this is just a pause, one step period is over. iran will begin a nuclear weapons program. >> iran made it clear he does not have a weapons program. they verified that the allegations about possible military were uncompounded. i think people want to basically engage. iran has had the cape nlt but decided not to go in the direction of producing weapons of mass destruction. we believe not only are they
7:10 am
against our idealology but we believe it would be a threat to our security rather than an asset. it is isolating qatar. what is your reaction? >> well, all i can say is it's a misplaced and misguided policy. we know those who attacked the world trade center.

we are back now. let's talk about syria. iran is syria's closest ally. you have sent malitias in that have supported the regime. it seems to be there is a large part of syria that will not accept a government. it is still huge parts of the country he does not control but they do not have the strength to topple that government. what is the solution that allows the large groups and the reality that the government does
7:17 am
control, you know, maybe 12 million people. >> let me first of all say that our policy with regard to syria has been consistent. we come to the support and aid of governments who continue to support extremism and terrorism. we did that in the early part of the century when we were opposed. we came to the support of the iraqis in order to prevent an isis day over. >> you do not fighting the assad government as opposition forces? >> there may be. that is why in 2013. a few weeks as the foreign minister as iran acreated the
7:18 am
four-point plan which became the bay dissoft resolution. those are in order to be realistic and move forward rather than get bogged down that we only prolong the killing and the pushing people into homelessness. we need to get real and get to the bottom of it. first a cease fire. i believe we need the cease fire. we always needed a cease fire. people put conditions upon cease fire. it is created. we all need to engage in efforts september those considered that a terrorismist organization.
7:19 am
can the second was a government that would include the opposition people who wan to par t -- participate. the third was constitutional reform so that the powers would not be concentrated in one institution. it would be so disbursed that people would feel they have a part of the state in the future of syria and it would bring everybody because usually you will not be able to reach that. they end up producing negative outcome. >> and then elections. >> and then elections. >> what is the chance of this happening? >> i think it's the basis.
7:20 am
we need to allow the syrians to make that decision. if people believe that the current government is they shouldn't insist and then people who are running the government will not be reelected. the point is also that it depends on the constitutional reform. there are reports that iran is escalating support in response to the fact they havest plaited its report. >> on yemen, before the bens it is in sit that nm -- we propose
7:21 am
to abend to the conflict. we believe the only way in all of these conflicts we only need to accept in reality, one witness, there this some want to will if you uls m people thachl.
7:22 am
>> i'm sure the bhoern wrote that that is why from -- and when he was being targeted by isis iran was the first country as he has said many times on public television that he asked many to come to his assistance. had it not been for the very brave struggle of the -- had it not been for the great pock
7:23 am
unfortunately our maybes from the very gibing sor te they spoted isis. they supported extremists in iraq. that is why i think that's what they hope in the beginning of the century and before that. they should not complaint that iran came to the assistance of the people and is accepted by the people of iraq.

trump jr. meeting with russians. it is said he wanted to talk about the act, a 2012 american law that punishing russians that are seen to be human rights abusers. it freezes assets and bans them from entering the united states. the act was named after a russian tax lawyer. he was arrested and later died in prison after being according to the own russian human rights -- they say heart failure killed him. he had found the fraud while working for my next guest.
7:38 am
plea pleasure to have you on. >> glad to be here. >> it seems as if it is all about repealing and undermining the act. we thought that the reason the russian government liked donald trump more than hillary clinton is because he thought trump would be better for russia and some ways more cooperative. now we see they wanted the end to the act. that is that it specifically targets individuals and not the russian committee. >> what we figured out is that there are froebl -- 10,000 people that commit for money. they keep it in american banks

and british banks and send their girlfriends on shopping trips. we figured to one thing we could do is not let them keep their money in the west. it was passed in 2012. we had in idea -- it was like a missile going into the heart of what they cared about. he went absolutely crazy when the magnitsky act went into place. when they mentioned it was about adoption in that meeting, it had nothing to do with adoption. there were two agents of the russian government who said can you help us withdraw this act if your father gets elected
