5:02 pm
international issue more domestic russia's ambassador was among them saying the u.s. is interfering in iran's internal affairs what do you expect of this approach towards iran and what's going to come out of it. i think those people who said that this is an internal iranian issue absolutely correct because it is. i mean as as most sort of years i'm sure are aware of the protests started because of economic problems people who are a little bit upset with an economic policies with the price of things that the other and all of a sudden and i remember i was monitoring this even prior to the case where the protests kicked off i'm sure you had a lot of telegram and other groups twitter accounts and whatnot that began to push this idea that these protests were somehow going to destroy the government you had telegram accounts by the barrel load targeting iran teaching people how to make
5:03 pm
most of cocktails how to make. how to assassinate people this is not normal and then all of a sudden you have trump and nikki haley and all these people coming along and saying that you know. we stand with the people of iran but one thing we have to remember is if you go back a few months when mom had been some amount of saudi arabia he said very clearly he gave the game away he said we're going to take the war inside iran woods to the effect of and i believe based on my information from friends and associates i got into homs. the reality is that many of the people who've been arrested off from. inspired groups you've got people connected to the m e k terrorist outfits and you've got these type of people who came in from the outside from places like kurdistan from afghanistan from. ston and they you they tried to instigate and
5:04 pm
they were supported by the swathes of sort of tweets that were coming out of washington and another interesting thing is a few of us we did some analysis on these twitter accounts and you find that these twitter accounts are all verified somehow they've got a little bit but they've only been around for like weeks or months they've got a handful of tweets and the only tweets i've got calling for sedition in iran now this is america israel saudi arabia interfering at least from a distance within iran's internal affairs yes iran has got economic problems absolutely but a lot of those economic problems we mustn't forget because the commitments that america had with the chase c.p.o. way have been flagrantly abused the d.j. c.p.o. way j.c.t. oh it was signed america turned around and put some new sanctions on iran which is ridiculous one of the other things that was said at the meeting today shippey are
5:05 pm
u.s. and russian nikki haley stating that a romney experienced the same scenario syria protests do you find that an exaggeration because it does look as if the protests in iran seem to be winding down. the protests in iran for the last two days i've been monitoring the situation extremely carefully have been winding down this is this is this is very true this is accurate. the fact that nikki haley turns around and stands that you know we could we're seeing in inverted commas syria style situation in iran this is not going to happen this is a pipe dream of people like nikki haley and that's an awful one and been said amount of people this is not going to happen there's a couple of reasons why it's not going to happen number one. iran is aware of the experiences that the world faced with the whole crisis in syria which was externally instigated. all well learned secondly. the guy.
5:06 pm
the system of islamic revolution and the islamic establishment in iran is not something that's imposed on the people through a military coup or through a dictatorship or anything like this if people go and read the history of the revolution and i'm not talking just nine hundred seventy nine talking about prior to that and just after that you will see that the people came out overwhelmingly by the millions tens of millions across the country which had a population of just over thirty million at the time. in support of this revolution they knew what show off was about they understood what america had done to. iran with the coup against the democratically elected prime minister was subject and they were not prepared to have that anymore so to create a serious style civil war inside iran while it is the wet dream of people like me who have been silent in nets and yahoo with allies trying to do stuff out of
5:07 pm
kurdistan and other places this is not going to happen iran is far more resilient and the government is wiser and more importantly the world is wiser we appreciate your take the matter to your hostname political analyst and commentator thank you very much. turkey's president has taken aim at washington over the conviction of a turkish national in the us and is reportedly now ready to back out of longstanding agreements between the two nations the united states should excuse us but the laws in our bilateral ties and the bilateral accords between us are losing their validity i'm saddened to say this but this is how it will be from now on turkish journalist has more now in the breakdown in times. turkish and u.s. relations have been deteriorating again in the last incident just came after the conviction of a turkish banker and who is in executive of
5:08 pm
a state owned turkish bank and it came after the testimony of the turkish iranian gold trader who is a convict in the united states for evading u.s. sanctions in iran now this whole trial may lead up to thirty years in prison for these comics lately president out of the on the head yet again condemned these actions of the united states and if this is the u.s. understanding of justice then the world is doomed for one thing the u.s. should review its understanding of justice and at the same time strengthen it while the turkish government sees this trial as a u.s. intervention to internal affairs and this is not the first time that the nato allies have been terry waiting their relationships this bad it has been happening since two thousand and sixteen. in turkey and the president sais
5:09 pm
that this whole trial has been based on made up fabricated evidence that have been provided by an islamic cleric whose name is. who also lives in the united states and who is believed to be behind a coup. but it is worth bearing in mind that relations between turkey and the u.s. have faced a number of hurdles. against american support for kurdish fighters in syria while washington has refused to extradite for too little and who we just heard about who accuses of masterminding the twenty sixteen couper attempt on that august u.s. authorities charged president bodyguard with attacking protesters in washington middle east expert ali risk thinks the turks. leaders latest words could have much wider consequences this isn't the first time that the turkish president of russia or play of war divine makes such fiery statements when it comes to something i think yes it's very possible that in the midst of it do all these disagreements
5:10 pm
with the americans has responded by a bike for the sprint thing five six with countries like russia and iran you do have this anti uranium iranian atmosphere which is prevailing in washington and so i think that pushes the entire thing anyone who could be associated with being close to iran because if you take it from that perspective it could be politically motivated maybe something more important which we could refer to is this the downward spiral we have in u.s. ties with the muslim countries in general we already have this mostly muslim anger from the from the street now from politicians or washington to relations with pakistan look to be sorrowing as well the protests have broken out in islamabad with activists burning american flags and portraits of donald trump the pakistani foreign minister sais the alliance with the u.s. is over as his country won't be treated as a quote whipping boy it comes after washington suspended its security assistance to
5:11 pm
the country which has long been in the fight against terrorism in afghanistan. we are suspending security assistance security assistance only to pakistan at this time intill the pakistani government takes decisive action against groups including the afghan taliban and the network we consider them to be destabilizing the region and also targeting u.s. personnel the united states will suspend that kind of security assistance to pakistan. this week expressed dismay at the us having paid billions to pakistan over the decades while also accusing the nation of being a safe haven for terrorists in afghanistan the twitter rant sparked a furious response from the pakistani foreign minister. just a quick reminder that the u.s. went into afghanistan to remove the taliban following nine eleven back in two thousand and one or twenty four hundred soldiers have been killed since the update on around two trillion dollars spent on the conflict it's now known as the longest
5:12 pm
war in u.s. history veteran political analysts columnists. move regarding pakistan is an attempt to shift the blame for a failed war this is all the pressure tactics because when united states is completely fair enough it's the time and they are finding some lame excuses to put the responsibility. on pakistan but pakistan definitely have a great second feiss in the water against terrorism and they have lost a lot of people in this water is them the diplomats you don't want to comes through twitter and then something is going to be cited by the police and not. so then how to go forward and at this time i think that the united states is going to be alone in afghanistan because they think it's ready tough time because the taliban is already in afghanistan are divided into the regular sections ideas factions. more reaction to that emergency u.n.
5:13 pm
security council meeting coming up right after the break our correspondent is in new york. you should. put themselves on the line. they did accept the reject.
5:14 pm
so when you want to be president i'm sure. that you'd like to be this is what the fuck are you people. interested in the last. forty minutes into the program welcome back and let's return to top story this hour an emergency un security council meeting to discuss the government protests that engulfed iran wrapped up in new york washington was quick to voice its support for the demonstrators this session for more on this let's join our friend in the city hi there we heard there washington they brought about the meeting there essentially looking while some kind of punishment on iran
5:15 pm
a lot of countries in disagreement it seems what did we learn from today. well the meeting was called by the united states an emergency meeting of the fifteen member body that leads the un the security council and essentially the usa spoke and then many other countries spoke and many of them questioned whether or not the meeting itself was even valid now the meeting opened with nikki haley she is the representative of the united states and she voiced strong support for the iranian protesters calling them courageous talking about the usa quote standing in solidarity with the iranian protests you also went on a tirade against the iranian government this is nikki haley the u.s. representative of the united states stands unapologetically with those in iran who seek freedom for themselves prosperity for their families and dignity for their nation we will not be quiet no dishonest attempt to call the protesters puppets of
5:16 pm
foreign powers will change that if the founding principles of this institution mean anything we will not only hear their cry we will finally answer it. now immediately following the remarks from nikki haley representing the usa we then heard from the representative of france and france is a country that generally agrees with the united states in u.n. security council proceedings however if you heard what the french representative had to say he wasn't exactly agreeing with nikki haley he emphasized the importance of the nuclear agreement between the p five plus one countries and iran remaining intact and he talked about how this is really an internal matter in iran this is the french representative at the security council. it should play as you know. mr president it is up to the iranians and to the iranians alone to pursue peaceful dialogue a dialogue based on full respect for the fundamental rights and freedoms of the
5:17 pm
iranian people we must react appropriately to what's been going on in other words we must ensure that we remain watchful and vigilant about what is happening during these peaceful protests. now following that we heard from other members of the fifteen member body we heard from china other countries and we heard from the russian representative now the russian representative question why this meeting was taking place as this was unrest in iran and then emphasized the importance of stability in the region and opposing the spread of terrorism and why it was probably not a good idea for foreign countries to be escalating and promoting unrest in iran this is the russian representatives speaking to the fifteen members of the un security council. someone who was able to let iran deal with its own internal problems since this is precisely what is taking place when you are wasting the
5:18 pm
energy of the security council and said let's better focus on dealing with acute crisis situations like afghanistan syria libya iraq yemen in the african continent instead of that you're proposing to interfere in so you turn away fares of the state. now in addition to the fifteen members of the security council because the meeting were directly related to issues in iran the islamic republic of iran was able to then address the security council meeting now the iranian representative he talked about how iran is a democratic country in his view and argued that people in iran do have the right to protest however they don't have the right to do so violently he then talked about how there have been instances of violence in the recent protests and pointed to the usa being involved in fomenting these acts of violence he talked about u.s. figures people located in the usa who have been promoting these protests on social
5:19 pm
media and u.s. support in instigating these protests he then went on to argue that this was an internal issue in iran and talk about the history of u.s. meddling in iran's affairs the u.s. support for the iraqi invasion of iran and the the war on the use of chemical weapons against iran he went into quite a bit of detail now the meeting ended after we heard from the iranian representative and there were no further speeches now no resolution was put forward or passed the meeting kind of ended on conclusively so people are wondering exactly what came out of the meeting why did this meeting take place questions were raised on the floor about whether this was a legitimate meeting of the security council at all and people are wondering exactly what will happen next as we continue to hear support for these protests in iran by the leaders of the united states talking us through what occurred over the last few hours there in new york out the emergency u.n. security council meeting came up and thank you. a promise by the french president
