1:02 pm
thank you for joining us china is accusing the united states of trying to stir up trouble in the south china sea that's after secretary of state michael bell said beijing's claims to the region completely unlawful china claims nearly the entire area but that's disputed by several other south east asian countries wayne hale reports. in several areas of the south china sea islands assholes and reefs have been transformed china claims almost the entire area and for years has been militarizing the islands. instructing remote outposts taiwan also claims parts of the south china sea along with several southeast asian countries including vietnam which is mounted the strongest challenge to beijing last month the vietnamese prime minister opened the latest southeast asian leaders summit with a strong statement on the issue without mentioning china. while the entire world is
1:03 pm
mobilizing its full force to fight against the pandemic responsible acts and violations of international laws are still taking place affecting the environment of security and stability in several regions including ours the statement from u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o came a year after the permanent court of arbitration in the hague ruled that china's claims were invalid the case was taken by the philippines but the verdict did nothing to slow china's assertiveness tensions between china and the united states have been increasing over trade coronavirus taiwan hong kong and now the south china sea over. the u.s. statement neglects the history and facts about the issues about the south china sea it breaches the u.s. government's open commitment to not take any position on the sovereignty of the south china sea it violates an distorts international law it is stirring up territorial disputes in the south china sea which is very irresponsible. in recent weeks both militaries conducted exercises in the area with the us saying repeatedly
1:04 pm
it wants to ensure freedom of navigation beijing suspects otherwise not only is there strategic value in the south china sea but it's one of the world's busiest shipping lanes and is believed to hold large exploitable natural resources china has continued to develop parts of the region largely unopposed militarily while the us statement doesn't necessarily signal a change in that regard it does signal a stronger stance against beijing and will increase tension during these unstable times when hey al jazeera bangkok live to al-jazeera. my campaign has comments not going down well at all with tell us about the response . no they're not fit china anything to do with territorial sovereignty is considered a red line so the furious about this china's foreign ministry on choosing afternoon hit back at the u.s.
1:05 pm
saying it was washington which was an undermining the stability of the region and causing trouble it is jolly jen the foreign ministry spokesperson also said that china had no goal for maritime expansion and that china has always behaved as a responsible multilateral player unlike the us he said which has not signed the un convention on the law of the sea jelly don't also mention the international court ruling brought to the hague by the philippines rejecting the ruling saying that it was not based on fact and that china would continue to work with its neighbors to resolve disputes via dialogue and negotiation but we do know at least one of those neighbors japan is not happy with the way china has been going forward on this the japan has released a government white paper saying that china was disrupting the status quo in the east and self china see to that beijing also criticized this but we can see that this dispute is just adding to review litany of disagreements between beijing and washington really adding to the tension we've got such trying to say you should
1:06 pm
john hong kong so it seems that this diplomatic relationship really is in freefall people some would say that relations that are are in you know now should we expect some sort of diplomatic reprisal then from beijing what action is it likely to take you through any. well time is for mystery today then during which is out a new press conference also said that it will be putting sanctions on the u.s. weapons make a look here martin now this company has signed a contract with the taiwanese government to provide $600000000.00 worth of surface to air missiles now beijing is furious about this it's condemned this move and thus we have seen this sanction put in place it remains to be seen how much of a stake lockheed martin have in china some analysts say it's just about 2 percent so really this is a largely symbolic move by beijing rather what we're more likely to see is beijing take some indirect actions in response to the u.s.
1:07 pm
statement further its rate of weight around the south china sea may be ramping up its construction of assholes more coast guard vessels possibly more military drills and certainly we can expect more strong rhetoric against anybody who questions china's territorial claims in the south china sea thank you katrina katrina you lived there from. china claims about 90 percent of the south china sea including ownership of the spratly islands which is disputed by the philippines vietnam and others this is claimed by china and the philippines that disagreement escalated 8 years ago when the philippine navy apprehended 8 mainland chinese fishing vessels in the area well let's discuss this further with richard darrien who is a political scientist and author of asia's new battlefield u.s. china and the struggle for western pacific his eyes from manila thank you very much for being with us on al-jazeera before now the u.s. had not taken sides on the territorial disputes in the south china sea the stakes
1:08 pm
in the region are extremely high as we've seen how much ammunition does this new u.s. position give to other countries certainly claim to the territory how much does it in bold in them you think. you know we have a lot of naysayers saying that this is nothing but a statement is just pure rhetoric saying that this is just a cynical ploy by the trump administration to drop all the president's numbers and the very tough elections in november but i think if you really look at the statement and compare it to previous statements not only from trump administration but from the obama and other american administration i think this is a major departure in terms of american policy in the solid china sea and also very important not only legally but operation other i mean if you look at the language of the statement it does not only reject as unlawful china aggressive activities and its historic rights to much of the south china sea and beyond all the way to
1:09 pm
the north and to in a sea waters off the coast of indonesia but what it also does is that indirectly almost. affirms the territorial claim or maritime claims of other countries so for instance it mentions that china has no right to claim the scar marshall would use claim by the philippines or diminish you free. which it says is part of the philippine continental shelf so effectively it's saying that those features belong to the philippines and the ramification is important for instance the u.s. has a mutual defense treaty with the philippines so if it's a said this line features do not belong to china and if some of these not features are already occupied by the philippines and if china the something aggressive or provocative against the philippines in those features then if so facto it will put pressure on the pentagon to make interventions and behalf of the philippines operational ramifications not just empty rhetoric here so you think china has anything to fear within its sphere of influence as
1:10 pm
a result of your position from the u.s. . and you see the audie important thing about the statement is that it's not the only defense the position more or less of the philippines by the way the major statement by secretary came out on the 4th year anniversary of the philippines arbitration award so it's very much invoking diflucan arbitration to work just fine and binding but what it did was it also indirectly confirm or affirm or support that the claims of other countries in the region with which it's developing strategic partnership for instance it's more or less implied that the james show which is supposed to be the solving most people the one that's kind of china is weaving malaysian waters of their fur perhaps it's part of malaysian. continental shelf he mentioned divine guard bank which is claimed by vietnam it falls within vietnamese waters but china has been doing aggressive activities there and even more fascinating it mentions the not too messy area by indonesia china have recently had some back and forth so u.s.
1:11 pm
it's more of this putting itself behind not only philippines but a number of countries in the region in projecting or short china as the bully in the region right as i mentioned i mean there's been an obvious escalation of tensions between washington and beijing over the past few months of our number of issues 1000 crisis of course a treatment away who is a national security now in hong kong just to name a few when do you see this leading to do you think this is a tipping point in the relationship. well one thing we have to keep in mind is the political cycle and i think the chinese america's rivals are cross the world they're watching what's going to happen in november so i think what's happening right now in the south china sea any kind of major policy pronouncement that the united states makes today the question is whether a different administration after november let's say if joe biden wins which is so far the more elect the will he continue the policies of trump administration i think based on my understanding of what's happening in washington d.c.
1:12 pm
and among leading thinkers in the u.s. and around the world it seems that we are increasing it tell them what a bipartisan consensus so maybe joe biden will be a little bit more conciliatory in terms of retard 'd maybe i'll try to reach out to china on questions of climate change maybe i'll try to tone down the trade war when it comes to tariffs and protectionism but i think on the south china sea issue there's an increasingly bipartisan consensus that something has to be done that we have to draw a line in the sand auto us china is going to turn an international water effectively into a chinese lake and what's even more interesting is that even odder countries we used to be quiet on china's behavior in the south china sea like indonesia maher speaking out countries like villepin good relationship with china under president details that are beginning to speak out and also vietnam which is now the chairman of the us the un has convinced the region to make it clear that any resolution of the disputes and the negotiations of the code of conduct in the south china sea should be solely in accordance to the on clause and international law not china's
1:13 pm
interpretation of things not china's alternative understanding of how these disputes should be resolved so i think we're really entering a turning point in terms of not only us and china relationship but china's relationship with the states in the south china sea and key neighbors in the region thank you so much for talking to us about this is a political scientist joining us tonight from many thank you for your time sir. spente morehead on the sound just our news hour including a british social ice chill she likes facing sex trafficking charges is due to appear at a new york federal court and we'll get reaction to the name change for washington's n.f.l. team that's coming up in sports with joe. a man accused of torturing women and destroying ancient monuments in manistee standing trial at the international criminal court in the hague and i got denied

1:17 pm
strict restrictions with some of the judges and some himself wearing miles to mask . a summary of the charges were scrapped the court went into a closed session because of the confidentiality of some of the details of this case and in that sense this case is seen as a long landmark case because it's for the 1st time that the international criminal court has decided that sexual violence is being used as a weapon of war so our son has been accused of of rape but also of forced marriages and of putting women through sexual slavery so these charges are all very sensitive of course and in the later stages here in the hague probably in august also victims will come forward and it's not clear in how will this be true video link or in france so they will come forward and tell about their horrific experiences during this period in 2012 in timbuktu when son was seen as
1:18 pm
a leader of the religious police of a group linked to al qaeda said lassen is not the 1st member of dean to be charged with destroying historical sites how likely is it that he'll be convicted. yeah destroying historical site is another important charge and 9. 2016 al-mahdi who was another commander of the new was convicted to 9 years in prison for destroying this historical sites and it's very likely that the son will also face a conviction at least on these charges but the sexual violence charges as a weapon of war is going to be of very much interest internationally many people especially women who have become victims during a war we'll watch this trial very carefully thank you for that set for a sara at the hague kosovo's president hashem touchy has

1:21 pm
are entitled to fly over actually i k i have never dealt with anything quite like this in over their 70 years of existence then you can expect running in parallel to this a separate case that will be seeking compensation this isn't the 1st legal fight between qatar and its neighbors in 2018 the qatari government took legal action against the u.a.e. of the hague based court accusing it of a series of measures targeting qatari nationals those measures broke up families denied the terrorists access to universities and medical facilities in the u.a.e. the court ordered the u.a.e. to allow families to be reunited and qatari students to be given the chance to complete their education in the emirates but i think that's part of the structure.

1:32 pm
the iran nuclear deal 5 years on of the 8 top officials only the foreign ministers of iran russia and china are still in the posts but the real survivor some would say against the odds is the deal itself it was the culmination of years of negotiation and the final round of talks in the july heat wave in vienna was intense and difficult the key participants only glimpse briefly between meetings are you confident you can get a deal this bizzare. i have to be hopeful were his words before returning to the talks and which according to a number of accounts the french took the toughest line with iran their chief negotiator at the time was ambassador nicholas riviere. if you look at it now do you think you could have got a better deal. i just said in part no it is so it's like that. you are
1:33 pm
shooting at us reach us and if you don't you have a choice i got it get me my hands are. faith and i think we decide all of. that i think it rich respectively it is a good thing that it is a rather stick remount if you were to ask me 5 years later what was my set of mind those days i was still skeptical and 2015 that tried to shoot every minute it would work but one man has made no secret of his view of the deal the iran deal was one of the worst and most one sided transactions the united states has ever entered into president trump finally pulled the u.s. out of the deal in 2018 it survived even though iran is not now fully complying with all its conditions the biggest test though is still to come here at the un
1:34 pm
security council us ambassador to the un kelly craft wants the security council to extend the arms embargo on iran that expires later this year if she doesn't get her way she's threatening to use the nuclear deals most draconian clause what's known as snap back triggering the return of all international sanctions on iran former french negotiator nick allowed the riviere is now his country's ambassador to the u.n. what happens if the u.s. try to trigger snap back. yes this is speculation we see that i'm trying to read tea i think trying to read to you shriek yeah sure that's you. and jenny it is to keep this you can't scream working place it's thought the us democratic presidential candidate joe biden would likely seek to rejoin the nuclear deal if
1:35 pm
he's elected in november but diplomats fear if snapback has been triggered by the trumpet ministration there may be no deal left to rejoin james al-jazeera at the united nations and as have begun same tehran with more on where the deal stands. on the best and the birthday of the 2050 nuclear deal resolving the foreign ministry spokesman about the thought he has told us that the slightly united states pulling out of that deal and imposing sanctions against iran and the europeans about living up to their side of the deal that iran is still brain that's committed to that agreement. we still believe the d.c. buick kind of benefits for both us and other parties that deal with us winter peace and security after the u.s. pullout and one year deadline for diplomatic solutions we decided to balance our rights and commitments we had part of the nuclear deal we took 5 major steps a rollback or not commitment and the disappearing now by its current circumstances
1:36 pm
is still beneficial to all sides of the same time it's a balance being different some point in the future we feel a bit deprived of the least benefits then we'll make another decision an important part of that deal for iran is the lifting of an arms embargo to be lifted in october but the united states has the funds they want to put forward a resolution to the nations who have the on the extended iran's foreign ministry says that they are confident that china and russia. are let's now bring in by whose the co-founder and c.e.o. of center the center for applied research in partnership with the orient he is via skype from the german city of poland thank you so much for being with us so 5 years since the nuclear agreement 2 years since the trump administration pulled out of this deal do you think the still useful today doesn't have a future. in fact the current state of affairs certainly tells us
1:37 pm
a different story did they sixty's we're seeing this disagreement falling into pieces but the most important bit of it is actually that the inspections by the international atomic energy agency are still in place in iran so the monitoring and very fine mechanisms of this agreement on the side of the iran are still in place of the pensions are still happening what is in shambles is the question of what iran is getting in return for it and we have already heard that after the economic relief that is not happening there is also it was the ocean of the arms embargo which is in danger and i think if that was extended then we would probably see the full collapse of. what has this achieved for iran any rainy ends up full for many iranians say the agreement of course was their moment to finally come out from the international isolation thousands board on to the streets we remember at the time to celebrate did it achieve anything for even
1:38 pm
a new would you say they're worse off today than they were 5 years ago. i don't i wouldn't say it's worse than 5 years ago but it can potentially be worse than the main hope that iran had you alluded to it was in fact that some sort of normalization particularly normalization of trade with europe now that really did not happen and there is no way that you ron is benefiting now in any shape or form more than before the agreement and the u.s. secondary sanctions the extraterritorial sanctions are leading to european businesses shying away from doing any deal with iran and beyond that even other countries in the world if we see this deal falling apart it's not just a return to the preach a c.p.o. a era but it's a return to a time inclusive including in a very negative experience of such an agreement and this will make any future in gauge with iran extremely difficult now this deal was also seen as you know the
1:39 pm
sort of a process that could have eventually led to economic and even diplomatic normalization between iran and the united states where at the city a situation now where that is far from being the case do you think the next american and iranian governments can rekindle that or has too much damage been done already. i guess it's fair to say that some point of these 2 countries will have to talk directly to each other so it's not a question of if but it's rather a question of when and it's certainly a reelected trump administration has a certain conflagration that gets to be taken into account for iran american talks would happen if joe biden won the election we would see a completely different scenario with with some advantages but at the same time disadvantages of there are a lot of iraq that i cannot die into right now but ultimately there has to be in
1:40 pm
these talks this by being quite on linkable of the more we've given all the tensions that exist thank you so much for your insight add non-tobacco by co-founder and c.e.o. of the center for applied research in partnership with the oriental live there from bone thank you for your time and the pleasure. iran has executed a former employee of its defense ministry after accusing him of spying for the u.s. central intelligence agency the iranian judiciary says raises as gary was put to death last week he worked in the air space department until his retirement in 2016 as gary's execution is a 2nd such case in the past month. several russian and turkish soldiers have been injured by a roadside bomb planted by syrian rebels in italy province the russian defense ministry says the blast happened during a joint russian turkish patrol inside the deescalation zone 2 ahmed vehicles have also been damaged prime minister boris johnson is expected to ban
