12:02 am
united states and iran still escalating on friday the u.s. secretary of state and treasury secretary and now just more sections against iran in retaliation for its attack on iraq the military bases used by u.s. troops the president has been very clear we will continue to apply economic. sanctions until iran stops its terrorist activities and commit that it would never have nuclear weapons the sanctions target or on steel iron trade construction mining and textile industries they're also saying sins against 8 senior iranian officials the trumpet ministration says are responsible for spreading violence throughout the broader middle east. but how bring over the trump administration are questions about last week's killing of iranian general concepts ola mami assassination the white house says was necessary to save american lives without offering proof that the threat was imminent this was going to happen. and american
12:03 am
lives were at risk and we would have been called fully negligent as the chairman the joint chiefs of staff said we would have been culpably negligent and we now recommended the president that he take this action a custom so the money. the sanctions come as the u.s. is at odds with iraq over the future of its soldiers in that country or solo mommy was killed the killing has fueled calls for the americans to leave roughly $5000.00 troops are made as part of the global coalition to defeat eisel on friday the iraqi government said it wants a u.s. delegation to visit iraq to plan for a withdrawal but the u.s. says it's not pulling out as times change and we get to a place where we can deliver upon what i believe the president believes is a right structure with fewer resources dedicated to that mission we will do so. compel says any delegation sent to iraq will be for the purpose of discussing
12:04 am
strategic partnerships like increasing the role of nato in the region an idea u.s. president donald trump announced this week a nato delegation visited the state department to discuss that prospect of working to develop a plan which will get burden sharing right in the region as well despite once calling nato obsolete president trump says nato now must be expanded to include middle east nations to reduce tensions and to assist in the fight against eisel it's an issue he insists is an international problem can't really help at al-jazeera the white house some enjoy a design for us in baghdad and disagreement there renia over the future of u.s. troops in iraq. but it is quite evident that what iraqis want and what the united states is willing to give are very different things the iraqi prime minister's office said that he in the conversation that he had with the u.s. secretary of state might pompei or he asked for
12:05 am
a delegation to be sent to iraq so the process of the draw of us and other foreign troops could begin and they could work out what allergies and that is something that was rightly rejected by the u.s. secretary of state as you heard him saying that the united states will be focusing on its fight against isis that will be focusing on its presence and making sure that groups like isis do not reappear that is something that the iraqi government has been saying is mission accomplished they have defeated eisel for over a year the u.s. forces have been here and the role of those forces not just u.s. but foreign forces after journalists in the money's assassination is going to make them while they are able to attack from within and outside iraq and they are hunkering down to protect themselves which begs the question why should iraq keep them here and why should iraqi security forces have the additional responsibility to protect them and that is something that the iraqi prime minister has been telling his cabinet his parliament the u.s. ambassador and the u.s.
12:06 am
secretary of state as well but the united states has a very different idea we also heard the u.s. secretary of state speaking to his canadian counterpart and talking about an expanded nato role here in iraq as well something an organization which has president has criticized in the past but now wants to get involved in iraq so it is going to be a very few interesting few hours because the iraqi parliament is supposed to meet on saturday morning it is not expected and it's not on the agenda for it to discuss the u.s. forces withdraw all as was suggested by many others it is going to be discussing domestic politics but the iraqi parliament again if you remember is very divided the vote that was for the u.s. forces to leave was only from the. our lawmakers the sunnis and the kurds were not there and we will be watching what they say about these latest developments where the narratives coming from their prime minister and the u.s. state department is very different and some of the been precious set once more in
12:07 am
baghdad what more can you tell us about those well thousands of people took to the streets of not just baghdad but other cities as well nasri and other places these are anti government pro-democracy anti corruption protesters who have been camped out in the streets since october today was day $100.00 of their protests they have been coming out and they did come out again today saying that they do not want involvement of any foreign entity be it the united states or iran they were saying that they will continue to come out to tahrir square in places where they have been camping out until they get a government worth remembering that this is an interim government a government which was forced out by months of protests and the interim prime minister has been asking the parliament to come up with the names that they can agree upon so a permanent government could be in place a bit could make the changes that the protesters are demanding and then hold early elections something that many iraqi lawmakers are have asked for before as well but
12:08 am
so far there seems to be stalemate and they do not they're not anywhere close to forming this government something that protesters say they will continue to put pressure on the iraqi parliamentarians on their politicians and they want their own government to be in charge of their own destiny not iran not the united states or some avenge of it thank you very much indeed. with tensions high in the region e.u. foreign ministers have met in brussels and repeated their continuing support for the 2015 iran nuclear deal and you foreign policy chief joseph borrow says the deal is critical for regional stability he says europe wants to maintain the deal that iran must uphold its obligations. well 2015 iran it could you has survived more than 4 years but only just it was signed under former us president barack obama along with iran and 5 other nations lifting sanctions on tehran in exchange for monitoring its nuclear activities less than
12:09 am
a year later president donald trump withdrew from the agreement calling it a bad deal for america and we imposed sanctions other nations tried to keep the pact alive but for another wave of tough u.s. sanctions in may last year iran began rolling back its compliance 1st it increased its stockpile of enriched uranium and on sunday after the u.s. killing of its top commander tehran scrapped all limits on its nuclear program but a shuttle has more from brussels and says the e.u. is looking for a role to mediate the crisis. the e.u. foreign policy chief burrell's of really came out and wrapped up that e.u. foreign ministers meeting an emergency meeting that was held to discuss the situation the crisis between u.s. and iran and he touched on a few main points he 1st of all said that whatever happens the message from the e.u. is that we cannot afford another war he said that all sides must deescalate tensions he said that another war would risk on raveling the good work that would be done to
12:10 am
try and stabilize iraq in the priority really had to be to fight eisel he also said that the priority for e.u. member states was to maintain the j.c. p.o.a.'s you mentioned the j c p o a randell it was signed in 2050 e.u. leaders have been battling to try and save it since 2018 when donald trump pulled the united states out of that deal saying it was a very bad deal but the e.u. has kept the line they've always maintained so far and that is that this deal is absolutely necessary for the stability the region in fact burrell said that without this deal it's quite likely that iran would have a nuclear weapon right now and he also said that iran must now try and fully comply with the deal and that comes after the fact that tehran this week said that it was withdrawing from many of the key commitments that it's made to that deal which would really see that deal on the brink of collapse so the message there the e.u. member states really want to save the j. c.p.o.
12:11 am
way and i think we also saw you foreign ministers perhaps trying to maneuver the e.u. into a position where they could try and mediate in this crisis a brawl saying that we must move away from weapons we must move away from conflict and really we must try and find some form of political solution joining us now via skype. from university strategy and security institute thanks very much for being with us just on that message that's coming from the e.u. that they want to stick with the iran nuclear deal but they want iran to comply with it again and how likely is that to be well received in tehran. i'm not sure if you can hear me at all it's lauren taylor in the studio i can hear you know our great nation i just want to ask you about the iran nuclear deal have heard from the e.u. that they want to stick by it but they're asking around to. go back to its commitments under the deal how likely is it that iran will do that i think the
12:12 am
current state of affairs and the way the tensions are born into over right now i think is highly unlikely the united states on the trumpet ministration has made a very clear that they're not coming back to the negotiating table and they are you could say the senior partner in the original deal so tara is going to be very concerned if the united states doesn't want to come back on board and therefore doesn't really see any incentive for it to come back and here to the terms of the g c p a way. and to adhere to those terms just on the basis of dealing with powers and that's why also the e.u. leaders are trying to get the united states back in there. and so we had today from the u.s. at another round of sanctions announce how does that play into the tensions between iran and the u.s. now you see there the long term fallout relief from this as a nation of so to money. i mean i think the analysis of the past week since you know assassination of them by some sort of a money has been characterized by
12:13 am
a lot of alarmism so you know we've had all these warnings of a 3rd world war and there are a lot of exaggerated kind of threat perceptions. in that's the case always seeing right now is iran wanting to go back to its original playbook and that means that it's going to continue with low intensity warfare operations against the united states against. you know. organizations it tends to be jihadists such as isis in syria and and even the syrian rebels so it's going to. place more of a focus and more of a premium on pushing with what is already been doing for the past 20 years or so and in terms of the united states it's also going to be going back to sanctions because that's the trumpet ministrations go to talk pressure it's not that they want to escalate a war no one wants one the region i don't think are trying to generation wants war i think that earring and certainly don't want war where looking at rational actors
12:14 am
here and what i hear sergeant are the what about the fallout there for iraq i mean had this sort of standoff if you like with the iraqi prime minister saying he wants a delegation to come to iraq to discuss troop withdrawal a state department refusing to discuss that issue how do you say that particular one playing out. well it goes back to how the the iraqi administration came to power in the 1st place in the 2003 led invasion by the united states they invaded iraq toppled a government and installed frankly the current system these current guys they installed them in it's place so they shouldn't really be surprised when the united states tells them that you know they're not interested and they're not going to leave and they'll take their own counsel on this iraq and fortune has become a battleground between the iranians and also the americans and both sides keep pulling at different leavers if we look at the iraqi parliament a lot of the parliamentarians and lawmakers have been compromised by the iranians they were incubated in iran during their exile from the saddam hussein regime and
12:15 am
when they took the reins of power they started to enact iran's designs similarly the united states also wanted to have people in its pocket that it could use to forward its designs so unfortunately the people who will suffer the most from this are the iraqi people themselves who have no sovereignty and who have no government that represents them and where we're seeing all these protests in tahrir square and elsewhere in iraq and briefly on that you mentioned protest as but some of them actually are now saying they want the iranians and they don't want the u.s. so where does their course lie there now given the situation that's around them. i don't blame them for not wanting either to be honest because both parties have played a malignant role in iraq. however i think that if united states were to withdraw and obvious he's made it clear it is not but hypothetically speaking if it did then and that would just leave the the arena completely open to the iranians to swallow what's left of iraq's sovereignty which is frankly very little so i think the
12:16 am
protesters are understandably expressing their frustration with the status quo and the status quo is largely a construct of both the united states' efforts and the uranian both of them contributed to the current system both of them contributed to the confessional bassist and that we're seeing today that has made a succession of weak iraqi governments and frankly compromised prime ministers. thank you very much indeed for your analysis thank you thank you still to come on the news hour a ceasefire and they lost a rebel held region of syria but will it end the mass displacement of civilians. and face as president finally gets his seat at the top table of world sport details later on in a program. and it's 15 people have been killed in an explosion at a mosque in pakistan's southwestern province of banish the star more than 20 others

hello there is a fairly quiet picture across central areas of europe we've got 10 you can see as we will see one or 2 showers but there's a big system waiting in the wings out in the northwest but this ahead of it is looking very nice this is a kill can call up in scotland but be prepared for the scenery to change somewhat as we go through saturday the next big system is really pushing in we have got warnings of very heavy amounts of rain across scotland northern england pos of and some pretty strong gale force winds as well and those winds really whipping across towards norway some snow and some rain in the mix there else was a says a fairly quiet picture one as you shall just a drifting about in the western med and temperatures are not too bad as well now by sunday the system has actually worked its way across the u.k. it leave in its wake wanted to showers and also more rain pushing through northern sections of mainland europe and still want to shop for the east pushing towards the black sea so still want to showers across those northern areas of africa really
12:30 am
coming from the system just sitting in the western med so throughout syria on into tunisia temperatures are a little bit lower that's the south today and then my sunday not a great deal of change we've got 13 celsius in algeria's and as i said that does come with a chance of showers as indeed it will across into 2. all dizzy right explores prominent figures of the 20th century and how why bill rees influenced the course of history beginning with the giants of the struggle for civil rights the amount of nonviolent resistance it was over the variable who oppressed people have a look at me and continue to give the negroes to be defense that what you mean by thought about malcolm x. and martin luther king face to face on 00. when the news breaks in the moment today the current government has lost trust the people by god to anything
12:31 am
because the projects are against it when people to be heard by so i work you represent the law of shoals for opponents of rex's troy the conservatives al-jazeera has teams on the ground it now hopes the meeting in paris will push politicians to create a competent and credible government to bring new moon documentaries and light moves on air and online. amount of the top stories here now jazeera washington has announced new economic sanctions on iran in response to terror on this missile attack on bases house a u.s. troops in iraq. the u.s.
12:32 am
state department says it will not discuss troop withdrawal with the iraqi government or as a request by iraq's prime minister for the u.s. to send a delegation to discuss the issue. and e.u. foreign policy chief joseph borro says the 2015 iran nuclear deal is critical for regional stability and speaking after an emergency meeting in brussels said europe wants to maintain the deal with iran must uphold its obligations. aviation officials in tehran have rejected accusations that in a rainy and missile mistakenly shot down a ukrainian airliner killing all 176 people on board iran says it will reveal the cause of the crash on saturday or the investigation into the tragedy has only just begun the pressure is on iran to allow a transparent investigation into what brought down flight $75.00 to france's air accident agency has confirmed it would be involved in the inquiry the u.s. has offered assistance to ukraine in its inquiries and one ukraine says iran is
12:33 am
cooperating there's still no agreement on where the flight recorders are recovered from the crash may be analyzed germany's foreign minister says that if a full investigation was not carried out it would create more mistrust with iran major airlines have either cancelled or suspended flights to and from iran and the european aviation safety organization has advised against flights below 25000 feet . when iran has maintained it should carry out an investigation into a crash the head of iran simulation authority has spoken about where the inquiry has got to. it's very obvious when the plane took off from the airport after 23 minutes of course fire the reason it's not clear now the pilot tried to return to the airport and change the route towards the airport and he shows that he was aware that an accident that happened it crashed on its way back if a missile that hit it it would have crashed in the original direction he says the plane did not explode till it hit the ground. well more on this we can speak to
12:34 am
a patient safety expert david levy thanks very much for coming to talk to us so what are the key elements in an investigation like this one the 1st thing is going to be looking at the data recorders we've seen pictures of them just just now and reading out the data if there's not the if they suddenly stop in midair showing no mechanical problem no confusion between the crew or anything like that possibly a little pulse of sound right at the end of the recording that that would be indicative of a bomb or an explosion and looking the other way around the wreckage would be looking for holes in the wreckage that may be caused by something exploding outside or something exploding inside so we've heard from the iranian civil aviation organization today we prefer to download the black boxes in iran but if we see that we can't do that because of boxes of damage then we will seek help how not only is it the flight recorders will be damaged and if it was a missile strike for example if it was a normal accident they should be absolutely fine if it's a missile strike the back of the airplane that could have damaged them but again
12:35 am
we've seen pictures where they looked to be in reasonable condition it's a question of whether the connection has broken between the main memory chips and the airplane if that's broken there may be difficulties so it seems as though they run ins are going to allow in other investigations how important is it it's very important for transparency to see what's going on for everybody they can report back to their own nationals that have been killed in this tragic accident and these are so it gives transparency hopefully closure hopefully to learn some lessons this and want to make it in the in the messages from their brain has been quite different at different stages since the crash happened and they now saying that they're going to announce the cause tomorrow is that surprising it's quite surprising if they haven't actually downloaded anything from the boxes that might mean that they may be a sort of doing political things behind the scenes to say ok if we say it was unfortunate accident what are the repercussions going to be because by now they should be looking at the major pieces of wreckage they may well have x. rayed the bodies to see if there's a bomb on board the airplanes that may have some idea already. and what about that
12:36 am
the the triggering of an ad offense how does that happen is it does it kind of create the software or is it likely to be huge human it can be software in modern warfare they have very very little time to react so the computer identifies it as a problem and says ok fire you have mis programming of computers missile systems where instead of truck this airplane it's actually said fire the airplane before now as well as just a ruse in the chain of command and understanding between civilian air traffic control in the military and what about the measures that have been put in place now to keep an eye on a safe and is that. is that i mean after thinking that region well most of the european and american airlines are just going to avoid overflying the area let's see what happens all the airplanes coming out of the gulf states that normally routes up the left hand side of iran and then turn left in turkey to service europe and things like that i don't think is going to be repeated but it's a reactionary measure to give some level of reassurance to the passengers i think
12:37 am
at this stage david thank you very much indeed for your expertise thank you. world health organization is warning that an outbreak of measles in the democratic republic of congo is the world's largest and most fast moving epidemic well then 6000 people have been killed by the virus around 310000 suspected cases have been reported since the start of 2019 w.h.o. says more than $18000000.00 children under 5 were vaccinated last year but poor infrastructure attacks on health centers and a lack of access to health care have prevented efforts to stop the does the spread of the disease we're joined now from is dr vincent juneau the world health organization's incident manager for measles in the d.r. c. thank you very much for being with us or can you give us a scale of the the efforts to try and contain the outbreak. many thanks for your question their current outbreak is affecting our very 20 c. program seeds of c.r.c.

and is a laboratory confirming that. 250 have. reassuring the baton assassin pointing to government to implemented when people asked what i was going to do start break despite that this if out. we are still facing a huge number of cases and if who. we clearly partake in in their country. so what would you say the main factors that are making it worse. first factor is that they have system is weak india's jacey's a very big and big country and we have a mini lucious you call issues to assess some area to be able to implement proper i believe you have me just your country is also affected by the protracted you know matter but. i didn't create this as well as insecurity that can be great
12:39 am
assets to some area so implementing public at meijer is if you've got that to a viewer population children are not properly investigated and i'm not protected against me this so you don't have a problem there with resist people resisting the idea of vaccinations people if they have access to them they are prepared to have the vaccinations i. the main issue we have this year have been here is do a file of do it a bass initial. tear of incheon as it is now we have some hard to reach area and it is difficult to implement activities we had not seen it and organized resistance against sebastian as shown in the country some time we have some parent who refused to present it as she didn't but we don't have any organized anti vaccination movement the world health organization is calling for more emergency funding for the music immunization plan how likely is it to get that money yes
12:40 am
doubly true is calling for more funding to to do could end up broke because the government has got a big that to do is go a new strategy response plan for vision as a signal of this plan is. plan a sort of innovation to be implemented to put an end to to the outbreak so the measure is calling us to help with their country to mobilize the $40000000.00 needed to properly implemented this plan. dr vincent thank you very much indeed for taking time to join us on out is there a thank you. the united nations says that killings rapes and other violence committed by an armed group in northeastern democratic republic of congo may amount to crimes against humanity and even genocide the attacks in. the
