national security advisor john bolton says iran will face yet more pressure over its nuclear plans and syria he spoke a short time ago after three days of talks in israel. consequences of the reduction in resources available to the regime we think is already manifested in some extent in constraints on the could force in. in syria and iraq and perhaps also in its assistant to the who tees in yemen and that's very important and we're going to do other things to put pressure on iran as well beyond economic sanctions are a force that joins us live now from west jerusalem so harry john bolton is in the region of the moment and very much applying the pressure on iran diplomatically that's certainly the message he's been trying to convey that the decision by the united states to pull out of the iran nuclear deal this year has had success both

as you heard there in terms of restraining some of iran's military activity in the region but also he was talking in that news conference about protests across the country against the regime and of course that is very much the same kind of message that israel has long been a conveying as well in terms of its opposition to that nuclear deal and its call for further action against iran is the united states john bolton said was using a policy of maximum pressure scuse me. and that it would be calling on other countries to join us in other more firm ways however of course the european union is still very much against ending the deal and still clinging on to that deal and so. despite what he talked about in terms of arab countries or of benjamin netanyahu talked a couple days ago about arab neighbors of israel being on board in terms of putting

pressure on iran we have yet to see that coming from western europe the other thing in terms of iran that israel is extremely keen to to to emphasize is the iranian military presence inside syria john bolton did talk to that as well although it isn't such a priority for the u.s. as it is for israel but he said that israel was perfectly within its rights in terms of self-defense to strike iranian targets he talked about conversations between the united states and russia directly with president putin in which the russian president said that russia had different interests in syria from iran that it would be content for iranian troops to go back into iran from syria but it could not effectuate that by itself that it might need u.s. help to do so although bolton didn't elaborate or give any real indication the united states was going to work closely with russia or on this he will be stopping in geneva next where he will meet his russian counterpart. and harry as far as the . efforts to try and make

a deal with the between israel and the palestinians we heard from president trumpet at that rally on tuesday night saying that he had taken jerusalem off the table as it were in his words but obviously the palestinians will take a different view on that. well yes that's something that he's said many times but he also said that because he'd taken to some of the table israel would have to pay a high price for that and that it would be the palestinians turn next to get something so an israeli journalist quizzed john bolton on that saying it was not a change in u.s. policy but with united states having said that his decisions on recognizing jerusalem as the capital of israel moving its embassy here were right and natural why were they now expecting israel to pay a price he said it was merely the president being a deal maker and expecting as anyone would that the palestinians having had a loss on that front would be looking for again on the next one as they wait for

the u.s. peace plan to be published some reports that might be published in september however the palestinians have already rejected it seems to be no indication that this latest language from president trump is changing that indeed senior p.l.o. figure we responded to that saying that the theft of jerusalem that there was no coming back from that in the jerusalem remained one of the key issues in any future state so the rejection of this peace plan seems to be very much in place as far as the palestinians are concerned harry thanks for that harry force a life for us in west jerusalem or back now to our top story and donald trump's political and legal woes after the conviction of his former lawyer and former campaign chairman richard johnson is a lecturer of u.s. politics at lancaster university joins us now from there thanks very much for being with us so let's talk about cohen first of all what sort of i mean the political fallout over this has been well discussed but what sort of legal jeopardy does this

now potentially put president trumping. well this is very serious if donald trump had lost the presidential election he almost certainly now would be facing indictment himself but because there's a well established precedent that the u.s. president doesn't face criminal indictment while he's in office trump isn't going to be hauled before the court the next stage of this process would be for congress to act as understood on the constitution the house would have to vote for a peach mint and then he would face a trial in the u.s. so if congress were to act properly then that would be the next stage and as far as the conviction of mr mann a for donald trump's former campaign manager now this trial was never about donald trump directly and it had nothing to do with alleged russian meddling but does this change the dynamics or.
