children in a texas facility forces the u.s. to move them. welcome to the program iranian president hassan rouhani has hit back at new sanctions imposed by the united states describing them as outrageous and idiotic president donald trump announces sanctions targeting iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali how many other senior officials on monday trump says this is part of efforts to stop the iran developing nuclear weapons doesn't harney call the move a sign of desperation and his foreign ministry accuse the united states of closing the channel of diplomacy forever. they are suffering from mental disability the white house is afflicted by mental retardation and does not know what to do this means the certain failure and defeat of the united states i do not have any doubt about that from a political viewpoint no white person would do what they're doing these days i feel
12:02 pm
that there is severe frustration and a big confusion among the u.s. leaders and the white house. but u.s. national security advisor john bolton says that all remains open to talks with. president trump yesterday imposed significant new sanctions on iran's supreme leader and other top leadership individuals and entities at the same time the president has held the door open to real negotiations to completely and verifiably eliminate iran's nuclear weapons program its pursuit of ballistic missile delivery systems its support for international terrorism and its other malign behavior worldwide all that iran needs to do is to walk through that open door but as we mentioned the news that actions go way up to the supreme leader ayatollah khomeini like hanna has moved washington d.c. . as promised another round of sanctions against iran these in addition to
12:03 pm
a number already put in place and directed at the country's most senior leaders president trump did not elaborate on the precise nature of the sanctions apart from saying that they would bar the leaders from access to financial instruments i want to thank our military i want to thank all of the people that have been working with me over the last number of months on this there's a lot of restraint has been shown by us a lot of restraint. and that doesn't mean we're going to show in the future no complete details provided by the treasury secretary either but speedman did confirm that some of the sanctions are a direct response to last week's attack on a u.s. drone iran contended the drone had penetrated its space an accusation denied by the u.s. i'm not going to identify which ones or which i've said that some of this was in the works some of this is a result of recent activities deep concern once again expressed by the u.n. secretary general he has urged all sides to show nerves of steel and he is
12:04 pm
continuing to maintain that and he wants to make sure that they. take steps to avoid any further sorts. of provocation one way or the other the u.s. is ramping up its diplomatic actions against iran the secretary of state shuttling through several gulf states including saudi arabia to shore up a wide anti iran alliance but at the same time a carrot of sorts being extended with the stick the white house releasing a statement saying the president has been clear that he's open to the possibility of future talks with iran mike hanna al-jazeera washington. joins us now from tehran and say this all sort of just a confusing war of words between the 2 but the insults really are coming in taken fast as well. yeah that's absolutely correct so hailed this latest round of sanctions have elicited
12:05 pm
a great deal of anger here in teheran it should be noted that the supreme leader occupies a sort of howl of ground when it comes to public life in iran nobody can imagine him being put in a quarter in this way he is an incredibly esteem figure and mr rouhani iranian president hassan rouhani in his speech this morning said sanctioning him was sanctioning a beloved religious leader loved by people all over the world and he called it the act of someone who has lost his mind so let's talk about the fact that you know you've got this scenario from the u.s. who who want to play sanctions on iran and yet they still want to talk to them as well these sanctions they seem impractical in lots of ways and maybe dare i say it symbolic next absolutely correct dissension in of such a senior figure in iran's most senior leader is definitely very very symbolic but
12:06 pm
it does have the practical measure of invoking great anger amongst leaders in teheran and is likely to inflame tensions further and as far as negotiations go albeit symbolic sanctions they are likely to impact how iran may receive any future overtures of talks by the united states they've said all in all of the whole while that they do see these desires for some sort of dialogue with iran as disingenuous coming from washington coming from this white house of u.s. president donald trump and in so far as expected sanctions against jobs or relief that we are expecting later this week iran's president hassan rouhani said that you cannot demand negotiations while you plan on sanctioning the country's top diplomat and it's not just the sanctioning the occurring as well zain i mean you know we talk about this tension in the region the build up of military personnel and hardware i mean all of this is adding to a very complicated jigsaw puzzle which the international community is watching a baby holding its breath on.
12:07 pm
that's exactly right world leaders that are watching these tensions play out between the united states and iran in this region are calling for a deescalation the united nations security council met just yesterday when a 2 hour closed door meeting there were given evidence that the united states says points to iran as being behind attacks on oil tankers recently in the waters of this region and the u.n. body sent a clear message by condemning those attacks on oil tankers but they did not single out iran and they demanded dialogue a call for dialogue between the u.s. and iran to cool tensions but with these new sanctions this time targeting prominent iranian leaders like mr zarif the foreign minister and the supreme leader ayatollah khamenei it is difficult to see how talks or how a cooling of tensions will be possible for the moment we'll leave it as a thanks very much into. president trump's call the deal of the century the
12:08 pm
palestinian leaders have already rejected his plan for ending the israeli palestinian conflict and the 1st part of the u.s. president's proposal will be discussed at a conference in bahrain later on chouse day it aims to secure a 50000000000 dollar investment over the next 10 years but as it pretty reports from the occupied west bank palestinians say financial incentives alone cannot solve a conflict that lasted decades israeli restrictions of palestinian businesses though so tight even salt can sift through the only palestinian salt factory is feeling the pinch palestinian businessman believes his company's problems cannot be solved by economy incentives only the military area so we are restricted in getting any type of permits. to. expand with existing buildings things that we want is not giveaways but actually business opportunities not only does the company need israeli coordination to pump water from the dead sea it also takes him a lot of time and money to export the salt using israeli controlled ports the
12:09 pm
factory that employs $25.00 workers is the only palestinian owned business on the shores of that city and has hardly changed or been improved since it started in the early 1960 s. owners need israeli permission before they can build any structure in this area sometimes they never get it it took 30 years before the go head was given to. the factories the main source of salt for palestinians including many businesses in the occupied west bank like many other palestinian businesses the owner of this food pickle in business says profits could trickle if he had under strict access to land and water as well as free movement of products. israel controls all water supplies in the west bank the palestinian water authority estimates the palestinians can only use 15 percent of their water resources israelis use the remaining 85 percent of former economy minister for the palestinian authority and businessman. says that economy prosperity needs to be in parallel with the
12:10 pm
political process so we don't believe in prismatic series here and there we believe in lifting occupation that that means lifting the siege on the west bank on jerusalem on gaza this will give us the space to grow the space to work in a further restriction to cripple the economy the israeli government restricts palestinians from using 60 percent of the land in the west bank to build factories or anything else in. the core of the crisis goes back to the establishment of the palestinian authority gay sions of the people in yaki territory has been transferred to the palestinian authority at the same time it inherited a weak economy. is or is the doctrine of tax revenues which it collects on behalf of the palestinian authority is at the heart of the authorities financial crisis that's as palestinians coupled with reduced aid from foreign donors as well as the long standing restrictions on businesses further blocks the road to economy
12:11 pm
progress in. the occupied west bank. so who is attending tuesday's workshop and what's expected well actually had palestinian officials are boycotting the event but some business executives could go there israeli officials are attending saudi arabia the united arab emirates egypt jordan and morocco are all sending representatives along with the european union but the e.u. says an economic plan isn't enough to solve the conflict and then has to be a political solution trump is expected to release that part of the plan after the israeli general election in september white house adviser who's leading the u.s. delegation will pitches $15000000000.00 investment and infrastructure plan he says it will. creates more than a 1000000 jobs in palestinian territories and fund projects like water power tourism and medical facilities well be full flying to bahrain he spoke to al-jazeera on the planet as palestinians on the region of opportunity stability so
12:12 pm
right now from unama we're focused on the economic aspects of what could be possible if there is a resolution but what i will say is that you know all of the people i speak to you know they talk about the arab peace initiative and again it was a it was a great effort but if that was where a deal was going to be made a deal would be made a long time ago i think we all have to recognize that if there ever is a deal it's not going to be along the lines of the arab peace initiative will be somewhere between the arab peace initiative and somewhere between the israeli position and we need to think about what are the fundamental things that are underlying an important number one is security right i think the israeli population and the palestinian population and the broader middle east right now cares a lot about have security the more you have security the more you could have freer flow of goods for flow of people i know that's a very big issue for the palestinians they want to be able to move through the borders i think the cost of goods are too high because it takes a long time to get through the borders but there's a direct correlation between the ramping up of terror and the threat to israel and the slowing down of the borders and so you know if we can create an environment where there's actual peace and again peace comes from compromise and we'll figure
12:13 pm
