6:02 pm
message delivered by the spokesman for iran's atomic energy agency that time is running out then i. will begin szell mortician my countdown has started in 10 days time on june 27th we will exceed the 300 kilogram limit of enriched uranium allowed under the nuclear deal after that's we will continue to increase the speed of production drastically. and there's a nuclear deal iran is allowed to have 300 kilograms of 3.67 percent in which you reign him at any given time inside the country anything in excess of that amount must be sold internationally but since the united states withdrew from the deal a may of last year it has also introduced restrictions on purchasing any material from iran's nuclear program which means iran stockpile will continue to increase the early last month president hassan rouhani announced tehran will stop exporting
6:03 pm
its excess uranium and heavy water for a 60 day period during which time it wants the remaining signatories of the deal to honor their obligations as they announce are not going to break the agreement so there are going to go as far as possible to the threshold because when they break the agreement they will lose the european support and for now this is not the iranian strategy to completely you know go for clear violation and break of the agreement a number of high ranking foreign officials have been visiting to iran in an effort to save this deal including a rare visit by japanese prime minister shinzo who told iran's supreme leader that he had brought a letter from president donald trump. but i it's a lot of the company said trump did not deserve a response harmony who has alternate authority in iran says the government will not
6:04 pm
negotiate any further iran maintains it has kept up its end of the deal 15 reports produced by the international atomic energy agency have concluded that iran is complying with the nuclear agreement iran says the future of this nuclear deal is now in the hands of the 3 main european signatories france britain and germany and president rouhani has warned that the stability and security of the entire region is at stake but many analysts say that without the united states it's difficult to see how this the orca work or such a pari al-jazeera to iran or the european union foreign policy chief federica more guarini address the iran nuclear deal a short time ago she says based on assessments iran is still within the boundaries of the agreement and says the focus is on keeping the deal in place under increasingly difficult circumstances as of today is the compliant and we strongly. hope and courage expect that continues to comply.
6:05 pm
with its commitments under the disappear in full. and i would not enter into a blame game at all you know me the interest we have is to keep the nuclear deal in place it's not an easy exercise we've never made a mystery out of it. and since during the last year it has become increasingly difficult for all to keep the nuclear deal fully implemented. this has been our constant focus as europeans. well it's a big story chalons in london for an story morgan he says iran is still complying with the deal the europeans clearly are very keen to keep this agreement alive but they're going to have to choose sides at some point right. well i think more green is trying to avoid having this framed as some kind of choice between tehran and washington d c really and for the european union they have already made the choice
6:06 pm
and the choice is for the j c p o a this nuclear agreement signed with iran in 2015 but of course it is going to get increasingly difficult to keep that deal alive given that the united states has already walked away from it and tehran is showing signs that it is about to do the same so of course tehran is playing hardball at the moment trying to put pressure on the european union to live up to what iran says are the obligations that it has as part of the chase c.p.o. way to protect iranian infrastructure reigning in facilities the economy of the oil sector finance sector etc from the sanctions that have been imposed by the united states but this is a difficult thing for the european union to do considering of course that it is strong allies as part of the the west in order with the u.s.
6:07 pm
at the moment is not being drawn by these ultimatums from iran and she's not giving much away in terms of what's european response would be if iran does breach the terms of the j.c. does go beyond this 300 kilogram limit of low enriched uranium she is also suggesting that she's going to treat iran's comments with some skepticism says it doesn't matter what iran actually says until the i.a.e.a. rules that iran is. in breach of the deal then the european union position will be that it's still compliant thank you for that really really challenges lie for us in . london not moscow sorry let's explore this further now with simon mabon who's a lecturer in international relations at lancaster university his ally from there thank you so much for joining us on al-jazeera so iran says it is speeding up production of enriched uranium they have this 10 day old tomato i'm not why do you
6:08 pm
think this needs a european say caylee and a increasing pressure thing this time for them to save this deal can they find a way around the crippling u.s. sanctions but i think your report set it up quite nicely the europeans a cope between a rock and a hard place here they would think credibly hard to actually get the nuclear deal in place the british the french and the germans worked incredibly hard exerting a great deal of diplomatic capital and energy trying to get an agreement between iran and the united states to try and get this nuclear program and so there was a great deal of concern what it all seemed like it was falling through but of course london and paris and berlin ok also concerned about relations with the u.s. and ensure they want to see increasingly fractious relations with iran or do they want to see increasingly fractious relations with the united states and i think want to turn is trying to do right now is put
6:09 pm
a bit of pressure on the europeans and say look you have 10 days right it doesn't have to go the way that washington wants will this pressure when it work though i mean what will the european countries britain france and germany what will they do if iran openly breaks the accord in 10 days you think. i think that's what we were just hearing from from the europeans from the report that you just played that there is going to be a bit of patience but it's going to be sort of calm heads that it's going to be patience and cools to wait for the reports from the i.a.e.a. the international compact on the energy association and so i think got will try and get more assertive in a bit more patience and a bit more calm in what is an increasingly hostile and hates the environment it would also give the europeans time to actually conceive of a strategy and to figure out where its strategic aims lie when through it is with regard to iran where the roots will concerned about its continuing cause its
6:10 pm
relations with donald trump in the united states and this of course as you mentioned is coming at a time of rising tensions in the gulf region after a series of unexplained attacks on oil vessels and infrastructure in the region we know the saudis and britain have backed u.s. claims that it was iran that was behind these incidents but what about the rest of europe and how these tensions affected relations with the united states. well i think you're right to say that that a number of states of falling in line behind the u.s. position well in the case of the saudis i would imagine that they're also trying to drive the u.s. position of these of iran but i think that the other europeans they saw or again. patients waiting for more and more information about who is actually responsible and many into iran is saying look at it if we wanted to do this if we wanted to cause all turmoil and hostility in the gulf we would do it openly we have the ways
6:11 pm
and means of doing this that doesn't reliance of the few so i think it's still a it's a bottle that public opinion it's possible for information and trying to shape the strategic landscape within which a range of different actors are involved now of course europe is traditionally empty conflict in the middle east for a range of different reasons and i would certainly hope that the european powers will come out and say we need more evidence we need more information before anything like this can happen because then we have cool calm heads for more reflection and more retrospective consideration before there was any hot headed moves towards conflict salmon may been very good to talk to thank you very much for joining us on not just their. now iran's military has denied being behind attacks on oil tankers in the gulf of oman last week and its chief of staff says if they decided to block the strait of hormuz it could do so straits
6:12 pm
a vital gateway for the global oil industry and tension is being rising there over a series of attacks on tankers in the region. as long as no one causes problems for the security of the straits of hormuz we will preserve its security and as long as the islamic republic is exported the others will be securely exported to. if we decide to the largest groups of hormuz will do it in a way that even a drop of oil well past the street. yemen's houthi rebels say they have targeted a saudi airport with a drone for the 4th time since wednesday saudi authorities have not confirmed the attack on airport close to the border with yemen have warned they will continue to target saudi air force a retaliation for the kingdom's actions inside yemen meanwhile the united nations envoy to yemen has expressed concern about the deteriorating situation monograph it has just brief the security council warning that the violence is threatening

a fried dry un led peace initiative sanji arabia blames iran for supporting the whole season causing instability in the region while the who the rebels argue they have the right to defend themselves said speak to our diplomatic editor james space at the united nations or as james what else has come out of this u.n. security council briefing on yemen. this is the monthly meeting where the security council is updated on the situation in yemen and it really isn't good news no progress really on the political solution in who data there supposed to be that redeployment of forces is still not taken place as it's supposed to and remember that deal that was done in stockholm is now more than 6 months old and what's making things even worse right now is the tension in the region just listen to the un special envoy the council has recently expressed concern at reassess collating violence across yemen and the attacks on civilian infrastructure in the
6:14 pm
southern saudi arabia i must echo these concerns including the recent drone attacks on our part i have repeatedly warned that war can take pieces of the table and in the context of wider regional tensions the risks to the to the political process have never looked well stuck naturally i call for steps to be taken to deescalate tensions for the benefit of the yemeni people as well as for regional security. mr griffiths has been having difficulty with his own diplomacy in recent weeks because the government of yemen has not wanted to deal with him they feel that the who things are being treated equally with member state of the united nations and they don't like the way he's handling the diplomacy since things have not been going well on the political front on the humanitarian front it's not going well either marlowe cock the humanitarian chief of the u.n. was also briefing the security council he made it clear yemen is getting more
6:15 pm
violent not yet not less the conflict is getting worse not better he talked about a dark humanitarian situation across the country he talked about the who think he's not letting aid in nor taking aid in certain places and it was suggested by the head of the world food program that they may stop food supplies and food deliveries in some areas one last speck to all of this and it's actually an environmental aspect mr local referred to an oil tanker the say for oil tanker in who data with $1100000.00 barrels of oil in it and they fear that that could rupture any time and those barrels of oil could cause an environmental disaster in that region so really a pretty depressing picture james spader that the united nations thank you james. there's plenty more ahead on this al-jazeera news hour including dying for

6:17 pm
the occupy protests in 2014 on hearing the news of sunday's mass rally in hong kong he only had thanks place for millions of hong kong people joined the demonstration and protests were in the hospital weeks issue of the spirit and dignity of hong kong people. on sunday 2000000 people marched in the streets against a controversial extradition law the government plans to introduce in hong kong critics argue it would allow china to extradite political opponents and activists to the mine land to face trial the city's chief executive kerry lam has suspended debate on the legislation but that's not enough to calm the growing public opposition in hong kong what hong kong people are still. poggioli draw extradition laws. and i hope people get aware that now there's a new white after that and umbrella movement. on arrival at the city's
6:18 pm
parliament joshua wong received a hero's welcome. where hundreds of protesters continued to hold for each carried nam has apologized to the people in the wake of sunday's protests but the organizers of the demonstration say i don't plan to give in just yes what we need is not a media talking we need action when will we withdraw we need real apology. that is why. i believe that until we see a real apology he will withdraw it's done. will not the extradition though may be suspended but kerry lamb has said no deadline for when the bike was in the city's parliament the next major rally in hong kong is on july 1st marking the handover of the former british territory to china and 997 these protesters will be using that gathering to keep the pressure on syria al-jazeera hong kong or the demonstrators
6:19 pm
want hong kong's leaders to resign for failing to listen to their concerns over the bill by the chinese government has reiterated its support for kerry blaming foreign interference for the standoff with pressure as to whether there are foreign interventions to what's happening in hong kong i believe we have seen a lot of facts in the past days ever since the hong kong government announced that it would make amendments to the extradition law in february many foreign governments and politicians have been making inflammatory statements on the issue. there is adrian brown has more now from beijing. well publicly china's leaders continue to offer support to carry hong kong's embattled leader but privately say some analysts are beginning to have serious doubts as to whether she should remain in office beyond one term these analysts also say that you know china's leaders have been left angry and also embarrassed not just by the fact that the police used tear gas and rubber bullets against student demonstrators in june of all months but
6:20 pm
also by the fact that more than $2000000.00 people took part in sunday's demonstration a reflection of just how people are feeling in hong kong right now and of course a lot of that anger is directed not just at the hong kong government but also at the central government there's no doubt the president xi jinping does not need another distraction right now especially as he's preparing for his meeting that's juda happen on the sidelines of the g. 20 summit in osaka with president donald trump and also chinese leaders now believe that the trumpet ministration is attempting to draw a line between the the hong kong protests and also the current trade dispute between china and the united states and president xi jinping does not want to give president from another stick with which to hit china which is why i say analysts he's been pushing for hong kong's leaders to show maximum tolerance in the face of protests the could yet continue as a green mention there xi jinping is spanning to visit north korea this week the 1st
6:21 pm
such trip by chinese president in 14 years here except at an invitation from north korea's leader kim jong un back in january the meeting comes a week before she is expected to hold talks with the u.s. president donald trump in japan negotiations between champ and kim jong un have stalled sensor fail summit in vietnam in february. to africa now at least 30 people have been killed in a series of explosions in northeastern nigeria 2 suicide bombers blew themselves up in a crowd in can do get near the regional capital my dougal in. who is in a butcher for as i made this attack as i said was not far from the regional capital of my degree what more do we know about what happened. well basically a. certain number of people i think about 50 of them or more a sudden even in football match on t.v. as they were watching some suicide bombers approach them the 2 devices were dropped
6:22 pm
initially that killed 9 people instantly and then a 3rd device failed to go off but because of the severity of the injuries since last night the body count has been rising right now a lot of people are talking about more than 30 people died and more than 40 others have been injured some of them with serious injuries and buries expectations by aid workers and health workers but the number could go higher and higher now what security forces and of course. witnesses in that area talking about that these are types of though it hasn't been claimed yet no claim of responsibility but a lot of people believe that it's a whole mark of the book quite a function under the leadership of its main leader abu took over from the founder of the group in 2009 when the former was killed. they said this is an attack that
6:23 pm
was organized by. the been known to suicide bombers and the been known to target civilian the civilian populations in the northeast and this violence has been going on for 9 years now despite efforts by the nigerian government why attacks like this still happening today. well formally in front this this crisis if we take into consideration that it started in 2009 we're talking about one of about 10 years now since it all started . now the nigerian government has successfully to start from controlling least 20 local government areas in borno state over the last 4 years however they still remain a potent force most of the areas that have have their bases been really difficult to access so in terms of accessibility by the military each sort of
6:24 pm
difficult most of the fight is carried out in the air by military jets and of course they send in ground troops however. has a lot of resources at its disposal apart from its local knowledge of the trip to rain it can hire and pay higher than what that terror groups are doing all over the world so a lot of people will when you look at the property in the region in the sale in the west africa sabri do you expect that when white on flushes a lot of cash in front of young people who are idle who don't have anything to do they will easily grab that otherwise they will be sitting there doing nothing but what has that advantage in terms of recruitment and of course they can cross borders if the no i didn't security forces sort of put pressure on them they can cross easily into or come home or charge the public and regroup there so when the security forces think they have gotten the situation under control they will just
6:25 pm
come back so that's a tit for tat stuff that has been going on for a very long time and also remember that in major towns and cities in nigeria but what are basically what it's all sleeper cells so they get the information they do what was necessary for 2 to continue playing the role it's playing now thank you for that for a simple. in mali nearly 100 people have been killed in the latest say fighting between farmers and head is al jazeera is market web rape or sunny who he called. making $200.00 cows walk in the same direction the same time isn't the. 12 year old boy at the i was in moscow with the aunt he belongs to the lonnie ethnic group many of the nomadic cattle herders. and hundreds of whom have been killed in growing into communal conflict here in central mali militia linked to for lonnie

afghanistan pakistan and the united nations are meeting in islamabad pakistan to talk about how they can better help afghan refugees who are being sent home laura byrne manly takes a look at the numbers afghan refugees who fled war conflict drought and natural disasters often found themselves in neighboring iran and pakistan more than 2000000 afghans left in the last 6 years 1500000 went to iran and nearly half a 1000000 to pakistan but since the beginning of this year more than 2 100000 people have come back from iran about 70000 were deported this year the un agency for migration expects a return of more than half a 1000000 people to afghanistan the u.n. says demand for afghan labor in iran has drastically foreman and that's largely
6:38 pm
because of political and economic problems and just over $20000.00 afghans have come back from pakistan the un warns more than a 1000000 may face deportation this year in 2018 these were recorded as the top 5 regions that afghans returned to they included. herat and just the capital kabul and that's despite continued conflict and the worst drought in more than a decade. well i speak to anthony neal who's advocacy manager at the norwegian refugee council he joins us live from kabul afghanistan thank you so much anthony for being on al-jazeera so this meeting is a reaching a roadmap for the patrie nation of millions of afghan refugees from pakistan from iran but it has done stand ready to welcome them back.
6:39 pm
well i think that's the important question what we saw last year is if anything an increase in the conflict in afghanistan under the what the record numbers of civilian casualties who were killed last year we also saw as well an increase in the amount of afghans who are actually leaving the country through regular channels and seeking asylum in europe so essentially even afghans in afghanistan don't see a future here anymore we also see that there are many challenges to receiving return is. what we found in our cities own research in 2017 showed that about 3 quarters of those who are returning to afghanistan end up displaced here they are unable to return to their homes or upon return by them further displaced because of the conflict so i think a simple answer to your question is that in essence afghanistan will struggle to receive these this amount of eternities iran we know has expelled tens of thousands
6:40 pm
of refugees so far this year because of u.s. sanctions but i understand that many have also returned voluntarily to afghanistan what sort of assistance is being provided to those so we turn are they able to find jobs do they have any financial support from the gaza. so essentially the especially with those returning from iran who've largely displaced or have returned given the economic and political pressure that they now experience in iran there's actually very little assistance available to those what we call undocumented the tourney's or the or those who are not registered in iran i don't know what we call spontaneously returning all choosing to return because the economic situation has got gotten so but in essence it's quite an ignored busy humanitarian issue. i know that i.o.m. is the international organization for migration really struggles to raise funding
6:41 pm
to meet those needs and essentially only able to provide assistance for around 5 percent of those people returning across the is them cholera border in herat and in the borders around jinnah indian ross very little assistance is available outside of the humanitarian community i.e. government assistance and in essence their very own able to provide cash or any other livelihood support old jobs to help afghans reintegrate all start to normal life when they return and a lot of the people who are not of the afghans who are anyone who has been in pakistan have actually been working in these countries and they send money home back to their families in afghanistan so what impact is there a pattern nation going to have on an afghan society itself. it's having already a massive impact we saw especially in the west given the drought that the lack of money coming back for those family members who were working in iran or in pakistan
6:42 pm
. led to an increasingly difficult economic situation for those people who were also then affected by the quite substantial drought in the west of the country. remittances or the money coming back from afghans living abroad used to make up 6 percent of the afghan g.d.p. and the afghan economy senshi that has almost been wiped out so the it is a real struggle for those families who are still in afghanistan it's also quite a struggle for those again who've had to return given who have not been able to access livelihoods in iran essentially what happens is people families saying one individual a kind of take a gamble on one individual to go and earn a living abroad when they were unable to do that the stigma and this psychological pressure that comes with that is also quite substantial and it's often something that we as a community or is not really well addressed by the the system the humanitarian or
6:43 pm

french president emmanuel luck or was among those attending the french manufacturer airbus has announced several sales worth billions of dollars but rival boeing has seen interests as it tries to win back trust from customers. has the latest from the air show in a war just northeast of paris. well what we're seeing is boeing executives very much in damage control at the paris air show we heard from for boeing executives earlier at pains to say how sorry they were over the 2 fatal 737 max crashes the lion in october then the ethiopian airlines crash in march $346.00 people in total died in a boeing said that of course safety is their priority but at the paris air show it's one of the main aviation events of the year normally the u.s. plane maker would be here launching and celebrating some of its new planes talking about some successes but the mood is very different they are talking about trying
