7:00 am
public square. welcome to all of you around the united states and the world. i'm fareed zakaria coming to you live from new york. today on the show. president trump spent much of his week at the united nations general assembly criticizing iran. >> the regime is the world's leading sponsor of terror and fuels conflict across the region and far beyond. >> iran's leaders sew chaos,
7:01 am
death and destruction. >> i'll talk to one of those leaders anti the president's charges. iran's foreign minister javad zarif joins me in a moment. also, how to fight back against vladimir putin. lessons from poroshenko, the president of ukraine. his nation is literally on the front lines of russian aggression, and how to handle immigration from across the global. i'll talk with mexico's president, switzerland's president and new zealand's prime minister on their views about one of the most divisive issues today. but first, here is my take. president trump's speech on tuesday at the u.n. was an intelligent, at times eloquent presentation of his america first world view. he laid out an approach of pursuing narrow self-interest
7:02 am
overbroader global ones and privilege ledges unilateral action over multilateral cooperation. he might not realize as he withdraws america from these global arenas, the rest of the world is moving on without washington. donald trump seems to be hastening the arrival of a post american world. take one of his first major actions, pulling out of the transpacific partnership. this sweeping trade deal was and a attempt to open long-closed markets like japan, but to create a grouping that could stand up to china's growing might in trade manners. the other 11 tpp countries decided to keep the deal minus washington, which simply means america will not gain access to those markets. japanese prime minister shinzo abe also sweet-talks donald trump, but he quickly struck a free trade agreement with the european union giving opportunities to europe that might otherwise have gone to
7:03 am
america. as the empty throne points out, if you are not at the table, you're on the menu. when washington steps away, the global agenda is shaped without american input. withdrawing from the u.n. human rights council means america will watch from the sidelines the group's routine condemnations of israel. when trump cuts funding for various international agencies he's playing right into the hands of beijing. similarly, the bizarre and continued absence of key american diplomats, no assistant secretaries of state, no ambassadors to south asia, turkey, south africa, means american interests are not being represented. perhaps the most remarkable new effort to sidestep america has come from the europeans. in a reaction to trump's decision to pull out of the eirn
7:04 am
nuclear pact and reimpose sanctions on iran and anyone who does business with iran. because of the immense strength of the dollar, few major companies are willing to engage commercially with iran. the europeans are trying to create an economic mechanism that can bypass the dlar. listen to what eu foreign policy chief told me at an event this week? >> we cannot accept azure companies that others, even our closest allies and friends determine and decide with whom we can make business with or trade. >> she indicated other countries, presumably russia and china might join this effort. will the eu's efforts to come to fruition they would put a debt in the most significant of american financial power, the unrivaled role of the dollar in the global economy. the truth is the european effort is unlikely to succeed. the dollar powers above competitors like the euro. yet it seems foolish for
7:05 am
washington to pursue policies that reduce the desire to curtail american power, bypass washington, especially among america's closest allies. the result of america's ab dick case under donald trump will not be your feen dominance or chinese dominance, it will probably be the long run greater disorder, the erosion of global rules and norms and the more unpredictable, unstable world with fewer opportunities to buy, sell and invest around the globe. in other words, it will mean a less peaceful and prosperous world and one in which american influence will be severely diminished. how does this make america great? for more, go to cnn.com/fareed and read my "washington post" column this week. let's get started. ♪
7:06 am
>> while much of america and perhaps the world was paying attention to brett kavanaugh this week, president trump was making a renewed case against iran at the united nations. on tuesday after praising his own accomplishments, trump's main target in his general assembly speech was iran. then on wednesday trump presided over a u.n. security council meeting. his main target again, iran. at that meeting he made a plea. >> i ask all members of the security council to work with the united states to ensure the iranian regime changes its behavior and never acquires a nuclear bomb. >> of course, the united states used to be party to an agreement that many believed that iran would not require a nuclear bomb but donald trump pulled out of it. what is iran's response to the
7:07 am
trump attacks? joining me now is iran's foreign minister javad zarif. pleasure to have you on. >> good to be with you. >> in your conversations, do the europeans seem determined to find a way to be able to do business with iran despite the u.s. sanctions? >> i think what was clear last week in the general assembly was that -- and in the security council that president trump has managed to isolate the united states. we saw it in the general assembly. we saw it in the security council where 14 out of 15 members endorsed the security council resolution that basically brought the nuclear issue to a close, and the united states was the only country, president trump was the only person in that meeting, chairing the meeting that everybody opposed him, which was interesting. i don't know what was the logic behind even calling for that
7:08 am
meeting for that matter. it's not just europe. it's the international community. because this time, and i believe in my 35 years of work at the u.n., i believe this is the first time that a country is asking other members of the united nations to violate a resolution of the security council and that happens to be a member of the security council that endorsed and basically presented that resolution during the previous administration which calls on all countries to observe the nuclear deal. the united states is now threatening to punish people who observe their national legal obligations. >> you know the power of the dollar. you have been trying to do business with countries that pulled out. can this european mechanism succeed? >> i know that europe is serious. i know the rest of the world is
7:09 am
serious about preventing the united states from destroying what amounts to a major diplomatic achievement, one of the few that we have had in many years. so i think the political will is there. the mechanism is a serious mechanism. whether it works or not is for all of us to see. iran wants to see results. we've said that to our european partners. we've said it to others, that iran needs to see the economic dividends of the deal. >> so because of this assurance, you will not pull out of the iran deal? >> we have been talking to the europeans because one of our options was to pull out of the deal when president trump announced his withdrawal. we chose not to after we were assured by the european members of the nuclear deal as well as by russia and china that they would find ways to ensure iran's interests. now we're looking to see --
7:10 am
they've said all the right things. now they put a mechanism in place. we have to see whether that mechanism works. >> in your conversations with the europeans, are they irritated with the united states? >> well, i can't speak on their behalf, but they're certainly not happy with the fact that a permanent member of the security council has decided to violate a security council resolution. not only violate it, but punish others for observing it. that's an anomaly. nobody that i know of, except for a few that you know, have accepted that. >> president trump focused in his last week on what he calls iran's destabilizing behavior regionally. he spoints specifically to your support for activities in yemen, your support for hezbollah in lebanon, support of sending militias into syria, your
7:11 am
support in iraq. isn't it fair to say that iran has this very deep influence within the region and is using it actively? >> we are a part of this region. we didn't come 6,000 miles away from our home to be in this region and to complain about people who are in the region. it's not in the u.s. neighborhood. it is our neighborhood. obviously we have influence. but look at who is sewing instability in our region. president trump himself said we spend -- the united states spends $7 trillion in the middle east. it has only made things worse. what is our role? we have been able to help the people of syria, the people of iran, the people of iraqi kurdistan to defeat isis. that's been on the record. even president trump himself during presidential campaign stated that iran is fighting
7:12 am
isis. we have been the serious ones in fighting isis and we have had a consistent policy of fighting al qaeda in afghanistan, fighting isis in syria, fighting saddam hussein in iraq. president trump's best buddies in the region have a record, almost a consistent record of supporting al qaeda in afghan, supporting the taliban in afghanistan, supporting saddam hussein in iraq, supporting the extremists in syria, and now bombing civilians in yemen. people who are bombing civilians in yemen are not iranians, they're american allies using american planes, american ammunitions, killing innocent children in a school bus. >> you're talking, of course, about saudi arabia. >> next, iraq, why the trump administration evacuated a consulate in basra this week and played iran for it.

on friday, secretary of state mike pompeo announced the evacuation of the u.s. consulate in basra in southern iraq. the reason, threats against the consulate and its personnel. the threats didn't come from iraq, the statement said, but from iran. this came days after national security adviser john bolton threatened there would be hell to pay if iran harmed the u.s. or its allies. joining me is iran's foreign minister, javad zarif. was there an effort for iran to use militias it has some influence with in southern iraq to threaten u.s. personnel? >> no. and i think the united states needs to abandon this policy of
7:18 am
threats. it doesn't work. our consulate in basra was put ablaze two weeks ago. it was burned to the ground, but we immediately moved to another place. so if we had this problem with our consulate, we cannot control people in basra. we, of course, have influence in iraq, but that doesn't mean we control people in iraq, as the united states doesn't control people in countries with whom it has good relations. so i think mr. pompeo and mr. bolton, instead of making these irrelevant threats that would produce no positive result, we ne they need to look at their own policies. >> what about the attack you made, the threats you issued, the iranian government, when there was an attack in iran and you blamed the united states. do you believe the u.s. is actively engaged in some kind of
7:19 am
intelligence special ops to try to unseat the iranian government? >> well, there was a terrorist attack. the u.n. security council condemned that attack. it was carried out by people who accepted responsibility for that attack speaking from western capitals on saudi-financed television stations. these are facts -- >> but there's no link to america as far as we follow. >> the united states has sought to destabilize iranian government by engaging with various groups that are undermining the security of iranian people including groups that have a record of working with saddam hussein in order to attack iran. national security adviser bolton was a regular speaker, hate speaker in they're vents. president trump's attorney, mr.
7:20 am
giuliani, spoke at the event this year. it's only for us to conclude trump, his activities that this government is behaving abnormally, talking to terrorists who are on u.s. terrorism list up until 2012, have killed americans, and they continue to pose a threat to iranian civilians, and their friends and allies are carrying out operations at the border, not the mek, but groups being supported by saudi arabia. unfortunately we see that saudi arabia has basically conditioned the payment of more salaries to these groups on carrying out operations. you remember that about a year and a half ago the crown prince of saudi arabia stated publicly that they will bring war into iranian territory. that's what they're attempting. the fact that we have a strong defense, a strong intelligence and we can foil most of these
7:21 am
attempts does not mean that they're not carrying them. >> let me ask you about another accusation the trump administration has made. the president says it was illegal for you to meet with john kerry, the former secretary of state. >> certainly i do not have to obey u.s. laws. for secretary kerry to meet with me, i thought that this was not a problem for him. i have met with senators, with former secretaries of state, with former national security adviser, many republicans. >> what was the nature of your conversations with john kerry? >> john kerry -- we spent more time together in the past -- from 2013 to 2015 than we probably spent with any of our colleagues. so he tried to convince me that iran should remain committed to jcpoa. >> the nuclear deal?
7:22 am
>> the nuclear deal. that was the nature of the conversation. i believe he has every right to do that. but i do not consider myself a subject of u.s. law. >> let me ask you finally, president trump has said iran's leaders sew chaos, death and destruction. he said perhaps i'll meet with iran's president one day who i'm sure is an absolutely lovely man. is there any prospect of a trump-rouhani summit? >> for us to meet, it shouldn't be just a photo. it should be substantive. we already have -- a photo op with a two-page agreement is not what we seek. we already have 150-page agreement which we negotiated carefully over many months, and it was not just with another u.s. government. it was with six other countries plus the european union.
7:23 am
if the united states, if president trump finds it almost simultaneous -- an immediate thing to just sign and get out of it, why should we waste our time? why should we waste our time talking again? we are always open for talks. we are always open for dialogue. we have shown it. we have shown that we remain committed to what we sign. but the point is, we need to have reliance on the other side that they will stick to their words, and unfortunately this government does not enjoy reliability. >> javad zarif, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> and we will be back.

now for our "what in the world" segment. when countries see terrible atrocities these days, they have one more mechanism by which to right the wrong, the international criminal court. for example, on wednesday, five south american countries and canada asked the court to investigate the venezuelan government for possible crimes against humanity.
7:28 am
but the court has one chief critic, president donald trump who pilloried it in a speech at the general assembly the day before. >> as far as america is concerned, the icc has no jurisdiction, no legitimacy and no authority. >> that came two weeks after national security adviser john bolton gave his first major policy address, a stinging critique of the court which he called ineffective, unaccountable and dangerous and suggested it would, quote, die on its own, unquote. >> after all, for all intents and purposes, the icc is already dead to us. >> what is all this rancor about? the court may soon announce an investigation into war crimes in afghanistan that could implicate united states military personnel. it would be the first time ever that the court has trained its sights on the u.s. which is not a member and does not accept the
7:29 am
court's jurisdiction. but the global court has always been a special target of america first conservatives who see it as a worrying sign of creeping global government. i recently asked the president of the icc to respond to these charges. >> i think it's important for us to remain focused, all eyes on the pole, on why the icc was created and why it is there. the icc is the only permanent international criminal court that was established to assure some hope for victims of atrocities. >> the court formally launched in 2002 and includes 123 member countries. the u.s. was originally a signatory to the agreement that established the court, but then it withdrew. the court represented hope and
7:30 am
an idea that some of the worst crimes against humanity, genocide, ethnic cleansing, could be punished and perhaps over time deterred, but the court has long been criticized not just by john bolton. in 16 years it's completed just six trials. only four ended in convictions. three more are on going and it's spent $2 billion to get there according to an analysis by a journalist in "the new york times." i asked the president about that record. >> the argument is not that these are not worthy causes. the argument is that it seems a very, very, very cumbersome process to get at them. >> it is, but justice is a cumbersome process. anyone who tells you it can be done speedily, with respect, probably doesn't know how it works. i was it was benjamin cardoza, a famous u.s. jurist who said justice is not to be taken by
7:31 am
storm. it is by slow advances. >> critics say the court is susceptible to political influence largely because most of its cases are referred either by a member country or the u.n. skrrtd. its investigations depend on the willingness of governments to participate which is by no means given. ironically many of the charges against the court would be partly mitigated if it had the support of a powerful country like the united states. as the political scientist terrence chapman and stephen shadow want note in "the washington post." >> if the united states took up the role and tried to make the court work better rather than undermining it, it would be fulfilling a decades-old precedent that began with american leadership during the nuremberg trials. president argued. >> we do believe america belongs on the icc and miss its
7:32 am
leadership on the icc. it is the time it joined the icc. this is the kind of thing they know how to do. when they come to the party, people feel more comfortable about the effort, feel better about the effort when they're there with us. the victims need them. >> up next, four world leaders weigh in on some of the biggest issues facing the world today. 300 miles per hour, that's where i feel normal. i might be crazy but i'm not stupid. having an annuity tells me retirement is protected. annuities can provide protected income for life. learn more at retireyourrisk.org annuities can provide protected income for life. not long ago, ronda started here. and then, more jobs began to appear. these techs in a lab. this builder in a hardhat...

we new yorkers have to fight crazy traffic all week when the
7:37 am
u.n. general assembly is in session. for me it's a small price to pay to connect with politicians and buzz people from across the world. earlier this week at the bloomberg global business forum, i had the chance to talk with eight world leaders and three business leaders all in one hour. many of the conversations revolved around two of the most contentious issues of our time, trade and immigration. i'll start with mexico's outgoing president enrique pena nieto who recently saw a renegotiation of his trade deal with the u.s. but told donald trump his country will never pay for a wall. one reason, maybe it isn't even necessary. >> you pointed out that right now more mexicans leave the united states to go back to mexico than go from mexico to the u.s. in net terms, there's actually negative migration from mexico to the u.s. have you made this point to donald trump and do you think he
7:38 am
understands it? >> translator: well, this is a fact that is known publicly. it is part of public data statistics. it's a result of the enormous opportunities generated in mexico. people aren't coming back because they want to leave or because they feel expelled by this country. they're doing it because their families are in mexico and there have now opened new spaces of labor opportunity and productive corporations in our country. we would like the process of migration to be one of choice and not necessity. and i believe mexico for many years, starting from the economic crises it suffered, particularly in the '70s and '90s, resulted in growing waves of migration to the united states in search of opportunities. today with the situation in mexico, people are coming back.
7:39 am
and here i think you say the benefit of the economic opening which mexico has pursued and maintained for the past 30 years. >> next up was the president of switzerland, alain berset, one of the 26 khan tones in his country voted by a two third majority to ban face coverings in public. the so-called burqa ban is seen as a backlash against muslim immigrants. according to swiss state media, only 5% of switzerland's population is muslim and most are immigrants from the former yugoslavia and therefore quite secular. i asked president berset if he thought the ban was a good thing or a bad one. >> i think it's not a good thing. but it is also a sign of unease in the population. we have to take that into account. we have to face this situation and maybe to offer other ways to manage the consequences of the immigration in switzerland. i must tell you, i'm working in
7:40 am
burn, our city capital and several places in switzerland. i never see a burqa in switzerland. that means it is also strong in minds, what do we mean about that? >> people are reacting to something that they're not actually seeing on the ground but imagining in their heads? >> i think it is possibly so. >> jacinda ardern, the president trump of new zealand made news with the first baby of new zealand, the first baby to be brought to the u.n. general assembly hall by a female world leader. neve got her own i.d. for the event. i wanted to dig in to the
7:41 am
president trump minister's views. >> you are tough on immigration. you want to cut immigration. is that the new winning formula? >> i will have to correct you a little bit. we doubled -- increased the refugees. >> refugees. but you've seen on tough on immigration. >> we want to make sure when someone chooses to call new zealand home, they have a decent job, a decent home and we want everyone who comes to new zealand to enjoy. we don't want exploitation in the student market. when someone goes out to work, they'll have decent wages. >> on the panel were dutch prime minister. the world's oldest leader at 93. he beats the queen of england who is one year younger than him. i asked him what his secret was.
7:42 am
>> our time is up, but i have to ask prime minister march ser, survival of the fittish. what is your health regime and how can we all manage to stay as healthy and mentally active as you are at your age? whatever you eat, i want to eat. >> i don't really know, but i do keep to a strict diet. i don't overeat. i do a modicum of exercise and i have six hours of sleep. i think i lead a fairly well regulated life. if you get some disease which is incurable, there's nothing you can do. >> all right. i think the number one thing is pick one's parents carefully. >> it means you and i can still be prime minister in 50 years' time. >> let's just say, if that's the diet that leads you to 90, i don't want a bar of it.
