9:05 pm
a security risk ok but don't throw it in the trash yet i guess not now is it just google that's taking this action or are other companies starting to block yes some other companies have reportedly also called quits with their with way including qualcomm and some chip manufacturer so it is also the hardware manufacturers that are calling calling out the way. the u.s. and china they're in the middle of this trade dispute the not agreeing on a lot of different issues what are the larger implications well the larger implications that way it can. not enter markets and cannot deliver to markets that it wants to enter whereas the u.s. government and kin is accusing quote way of installing back doors in the software and the reality of it is these accusations have been in the room for quite a while but if there is proof for that is not been made publicly if china decides
9:06 pm
to retaliate what kind of position are they in if they want to take aim at say apple well they have their own they have their own operating system that they're currently valid things to what they have been actually always does they get in their own ok actually so there they have been preparing for a situation like that but nobody really knows how how competent will it is and of course one way would love to just use the existing economics and the existing environments of current software programs that are already in place ok this could be affecting smartphone users we'll see what happens there trace a lot of from vice magazine thank you sir thank you so much thank you well iran has condemned the threats by president donald trump on twitter this weekend in which the u.s. leader warned about the quote end of iran as a response to iran's foreign minister jeavons so bizarre raef used his twitter account to say quote iranians have stood tall for millennia while it's aggressors
9:07 pm
are all gone economic terrorism and genocidal taunts won't and iran the hashtag there says never threaten an iranian tribe respect it works relations between the 2 countries have worsened since washington pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal last year tensions rose further when trump announced more economic measures against iran earlier this month. free is here from washington and she can tell us more on that helen welcome u.s. warships are on their way to the region so this is clearly much more than just exchange of angry tweets right. right call that is certainly the concern at least it's not the 1st time that the u.s. president has waged a war of words but i think it's fair to say that there is concern in the international community that this tactic could one day go too far and that was the warning from the british foreign secretary jeremy hunt speaking in geneva saying
9:08 pm
let us not see these 2 countries accidentally trip into a warfare now iran is also bringing its own provocation day it announced that it has upped its enrichment of uranium it's quadrupled that although it remains within the parameters of the 2015 nuclear deal so what we are seeing overall right now call is trump's particular brand of foreign policy flattery and then battery battery with that harsh rhetoric on those tweets but then yesterday remember as well we saw the president appear on fox news saying i don't want to go to war with iran was hurt economies before swiftly adding it also leads to loss of life so confused rhetoric they're leading many people to question whether the u.s. president is sure all of his position on iran or whether he's being influenced heavily by those in his circle here in washington d.c. now speaking of of influence
9:09 pm
a few years ago his security advisor john bolton wrote an op ed in the new york times it was entitled to stop iran's bomb bomb iran how much influence does john bolton have in the white house. there are certainly reports and talk here in washington d.c. about the fact that john bolton may be a man who is looking for a war on several fronts whether that is with regards to intervention with venezuela north korea and now also with iran and there's also quite some debate as to the movement of those u.s. military ships and b. $52.00 bombers into the gulf whether that is something that really is readying for warfare or whether it's more readying for psychological warfare an effort to bring iran back to the negotiating table on the 2015 nuclear deal of course remember up until now washington has used economic sanctions in a bid to get iran to return to the table i mean that is certainly something these
9:10 pm
accusations of john bolton being the man pulling the strings that has been echoed by the iranian foreign minister himself who tweeted yesterday saying that trump is being influenced by john bolton as what is the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu on the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sol man deriving these people as a trinity who comprise the teen be in foreign affairs our very own helen humphrey in washington thank you very much. now let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world supporters of sudan's extremist groups of called for the inclusion of show real blogger any new government this comes as the military and opposition resume talks regarding a transition to civilian rule the military removed a long time president omar al bashir in april. former south african president jacob zuma is back in court where his lawyers have argued he can't expect a fair trial on corruption charges zuma was forced to resign last year amid charges

9:13 pm
dialogue with the pro western president selenski can count on the support of ukrainians but he also has to live up to their expectations. in the move which was wonderful to hear simple easy to understand words for ordinary people we hope that everything will be alright the hopes riding on him are enormous growth is going to. go to the kind of taking away politicians immunity ending the war and fighting corruption those are the 3 main things that need to be done. no no i do so i hope his actions match his words if they do i think ukraine will live in peace and plenty. tough challenges lie ahead and the one time act might find it harder to remain popular as an actual president. or there are just days to go before european elections and austria is in the midst of a political crisis the country's a junior coalition partner the all right freedom party has announced that all of
