5:00 am
al-jazeera. swear and. this is al-jazeera. i'm santa maria and this is the news hour from al-jazeera. the u.s. says it is working to form a military coalition to protect shipping waters off the coast of iran and yemen also a diplomatic route between the u.k. in the u.s. continues president trump calls the british prime minister foolish and the ambassador stupid. the internet's finally back on in sudan
5:01 am
a month after the military crackdown that killed more than $100.00 people and how france's push to be more environmentally friendly will see consumers paying more for their flights out of the country. so the united states says it is attempting to form a military coalition to protect shipping lanes off the coast of iran and yemen the trumpet ministrations blames teheran and its proxies for several attacks on tankers in the gulf in the past few months a 5th of the world's oil is traded through that area earlier a commander in iran's revolutionary guard issued a new threat as well against the u.s. bases an aircraft carriers in the region saying they would be destroyed if they made a mistake. now iraq's prime minister is saying any disruption to shipping in the strait of hormuz could hurt the country's economy the strait provides the only sea passage from the gulf thought to the rest of the world and oil makes up 95 percent
5:02 am
of iraq's 6 bolts most of which go through the gulf baghdad has been investigating alternative routes for exports in case tensions between the u.s. and iran lead to any disruptions let's get more of this with john hendren he's in washington d.c. you were saying earlier john it's really embryonic stages for this idea of a military force but what information is there. as right come on this is such an early stage process that is really just an idea at this point general joseph dunford the highest ranking military official is the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff in the u.s. says that the u.s. is working to form a coalition it says over the next couple of weeks it will see which countries have what he calls the political will to join in this coalition to protect the strait of hormuz with their military forces then they will identify the various military forces that each country will contribute and it's a valid point that they would actually assemble this force and put them in the
5:03 am
strait of hormuz president trump has said the u.s. should not pay for it alone and that might be why this is a multinational project in the same way that he approaches nato he's very concerned about what the u.s. is spending on these projects by putting the u.s. and other militaries in the strait puts them in potential conflict with forces in iran after all president trump said the united states was 10 minutes away from launching an air strike on iran after iran struck a u.s. global hawk surveillance drone and then there were these attacks on commercial shipping in the strait so the potential for provocation only grows in this scenario . joan can i ask you about brian hook who is the u.s. special representative for iran policy speaking to 0 and talking about iran specifically what did he say. when he said the u.s. is go it alone policy is actually more effective than the multinational policy and
5:04 am
that iran nuclear deal from which the u.s. pulled out he said president trump wants a new nuclear deal but he wants one that will be approved by the u.s. senate and it's the administration's point of view that when barack obama the former president negotiated that deal that he was doing it from a point of weakness that he couldn't get it through the u.s. senate and so he went to the u.n. security council and i hope went on to say that the united states is going to only tighten sanctions at this point because he believes that this is what brings the iranians to the table this is what he had to say down to 0. we have taken iran to new lows in revenue and they're feeling it and they're hurting and their proxies are hurting and we want to deny this regime the revenue that it needs to export revolution to run an expansionist foreign policy that drives a lot of the sectarian violence we see in the middle east. so the u.s.
5:05 am
has not at all softened its position meanwhile iran has announced that it is going to violate the nuclear enrichment levels at which it agreed under that multinational agreement so this standoff intensifies on the part of possibility for conflict only increases come on thank you john hendren in washington d.c. . another note on iran the top diplomatic advisor to french president among your micron is intact from e.u. countries that signed the 2015 agreement of call for a meeting after teheran's decision to breach the uranium enrichment limit which is allowed under the deal france germany britain the e.u. all concerned about iran's breaching of its commitments and they have called on terror to instead fully comply with the agreement on a whole reporting now from vienna where the i.a.e.a. the international atomic energy agency is due to hold a meeting of its own on iran on wednesday. in issuing this communique the european
5:06 am
signatories to the j c p o a the iran nuclear deal france germany and the united kingdom the ether e collectively they're known as along with the e.u. of course here issuing their response to iran's latest uranium enrichment moves the communique expressing deep concern over iran's pursuit of activity is not in line with its commitment calling for iran if it wants to stay in the deal as it professes to want to do to come back in line immediately without delay and calling on all the parties in terms of a joint commission to act responsibly to deescalate tensions now broadly speaking 2 points to make about this the 1st is that this is not and this is important i think the 3 triggering the formal dispute resolution mechanisms contained in the j c p o s a it's apparently thought that these breaches are not sufficient to warrant a move like that a move that could in itself escalate tensions and have the effect of shutting down what small room for maneuver there remains the 3 of course remember trying to keep
5:07 am
the nuclear deal alive delicately here playing the middle ground on the one hand they've got to express some concern on the other hand of course they retain some faint optimism that iran can be talked around that some bridge can be found between washington and tehran faint hope indeed perhaps but that leads to the 2nd point which is that france effectively now taking the lead in the east 3 manual macron the president sending an envoy to teheran for meetings on wednesday with the intention to urge the iranians to take a backward step but i think ambition very limited according to the french government official they're hoping at the very least for gestures simple gestures that iran is serious about its intention of remaining within the j c p o l. now the u.s. president is ramping up his twitter attacks on the british ambassador as well as the outgoing prime minister theresa may trump called tourism is handling of brags that foolish and said the british envoy to iraq is
5:08 am
a very stupid guy but the man in charge of the u.k. is foreign office has hit back calling trump's comments disrespectful of course all this triggered by the leaked memo from britain's top diplomat in the us referring to the trumpet ministration as in that all the details now with alan fischer. president friends it was a high profile jennifer qatar's amir she brought together political and business leaders as well as washington's top diplomats press missing the uki ambassador disinvited by the white house after the publication of leaked memos sharply critical of president donald trump a career diplomat has been the u.k.'s man in washington says 2016 part of his job is to file reports back to london it's been revealed he describes the trump white house as uniquely dysfunctional clumsy and inept he described u.s. policy on iran as incoherent chaotic and his summary we don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal less dysfunctional less
5:09 am
unpredictable i work for the state department for many years and we were always encouraged to be direct and frank with what our superiors here in washington about our interactions with government officials with whom we doubt so technically he did not do anything wrong but politically it probably would have been wise to be extremely cautious donald trump has said he will no longer deal with the ambassador and then a series of tweets on tuesday said the wacky ambassador that the u.k. forced it upon the united states is not someone we are thrilled with a very stupid guy i don't know the ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool came down it could have expected to move on from his position in the near future and it's unlikely he's the only foreign diplomat sending back stock assessments of the u.s. administration but if a new u.k. prime minister was to decide he had to go because of donald trump's anger there's
5:10 am
also some things in writing because particularly if there are matter of opinion if you state that factually that there are x. number of people out of their. place at 3 o'clock on the 6th think well no problem put in writing but if you go on to say. it was. orrible it was really bad and the speech was horrible i don't know that i put that in writing particularly if i'm a diplomat and you have to remember that the ambassador to the united states is a coveted role just as the ambassador ship to the u.k. is a coveted role and really all embassador ships are so for anyone embassador who gets a job there probably a 100 people who wanted the job let me put it through the words of jeremy hunt 2 you mentioned before who is a prime ministerial candidate and who is currently the foreign secretary this is what he tweeted a little while ago he said friends he's speaking to don't from friends speak frankly so i will these comments that disrespectful and wrong to our prime minister and my country your diplomats give their private opinions to secretary pompei and
5:11 am
so do else and he makes a good point this is what they do whether they put it in writing all the way that i think it or not this is part of surely the job of a diplomat to sort of feel the pulse of what's happening in their patch and report back to their superiors and say well this is what i think's going on. yes and i think though jeremy hunt is in a position where he has to make a comment whereas boris johnson can be silent are you know enter into this thing or if he wants to or not but i think what jeremy says is right however probably the follow on comment is if you don't like the guy because he's wearing a blue tie and you like red ties or is hairs blond and you want black hair then. workable relationship so i think what you know mr hart also knows is this you can't have your ambassador who's supposed to be talking to all the americans all the time he's the eyes and ears and he's the face of the u.k. in america right now if if his relationship is hurt for whatever reason you really
5:12 am
have to replace the guy who trumps comments about the u.k. ambassador and the outgoing british prime minister both came up in the final t.v. debate between the 2 men hoping to replace to recently johnson and jeremy hunt clashed over of course briggs it is more with lawrence leigh. given the seriousness of the situation is genuinely extraordinary that this is the very 1st time these 2 could face questions from the public they haven't seen in advance as to what the next prime minister should do to get through the maze of brics it's and yet again the same false promises boris johnson arguing that the u.k. would leave with no deal or not sober and then implement a trade deal with the european union even though one wouldn't exist so the problems of the irish border where they properly belong in the context of the free trade agreement that we will do after we come out on october 31st try to attack on this
5:13 am
kind of thing he presented himself as a detail despite that's not like his opponents being prime minister is about telling people what they need to hear not just what they want to hear and the difference between you and me is you are peddling optimism and i'm saying we. i make a tremendous. we thank the diplomatic war that's broken out between the u.s. and u.k. came up of course once again demonstrating a gap hunts insisted he would stand up to trump and support his ambassador in washington sometimes things that you have to say to your friends that you rather not say like i said to president trump today because i think his comments about treason may well acceptable and i don't think he should have made them. while johnson refused to promise to defend the ambassador and refused to say that he would keep him in posts well i'm not going to be so presumptuous as to thank you i got a good position the program was called britain's next prime minister much of it was
5:14 am
excruciating to watch yes or yes i will i will give you your guess what it was you know was the question allow him to respond boris you haven't answered any of this ongoing question about what it was you know both are to raise their hand if they believe the u.k. will leave the european union at the end of october well that's the spirit jeremy there and. of course the one thing that both johnson and hunt both have in common is an insistence that through sheer force of will they can balance the european union into coming up with a new brics it deal before the end of october and when those people in brussels understand that they mean business they will surely capitulates of course those people in brussels watch the television too and know perfectly well that that is the threat they now face and nothing has changed and both are kind of the snow as well even though they won't admit it that there is no time whatsoever to come up with a new deal before the end of october. once come across as the more serious candidates but johnson remains favorites all find out soon enough if he's telling the truth
5:15 am
about his intention to say goodbye to the european union without spending don't sleep al-jazeera. or a let's see what's coming up on this news hour alarm bells in china are over america's plans to sell more to. taiwan we will tell you why the timing of the steel is so important after 4 years of fighting the u.a.e. says it is withdrawing some of its forces from yemen and the support of polo hits new heights as part of an attempt to boost tourism in of all places north of pakistan the details coming out. for now the sudan which has begun to restore internet access to mobile phones services would count after more than $100.00 people were killed by government forces during a peaceful sit in last month just having images of the military crackdown now surfacing on social media. has more. for the
5:16 am
1st time in more than a month these type of images are be shared through mobile phone use. they show the aftermath of sudan's military crackdown on protesters during a peaceful sit in in khartoum more than 100 people were killed by sudan's military joint on june 3rd without. much of the violence was recorded on so far videos internet services were cut shortly after on the orders of sudan's transitional military council. lawyer adela seem hazan filed a lawsuit requesting the internet be restored the court agreed services were brought back 1st to fix landlines on tuesday the ruling was extended to mobile phones he along with several human rights groups believe the shutdown was an attempt to hide evidence of crimes committed against civilians what. the argument was that interrupting internet services would protect the general public but in
5:17 am
fact it was the opposite it was for the protection of private entities and for people that have committed crimes. social media platforms like facebook and twitter were widely used to organize protests that ultimately toppled longtime leader omar al bashir in april once the military took control for weeks protesters took to the streets demanding the formation of a civilian led government. since the military crackdown trust between the military and civilians has been damaged. but last week progress was made generals and protesters agree to form a joint civilian military ruling body together they plan to install a new government for a transitional period of 3 years oh despite recent violence many civilians say they will keep pushing for change but these pictures that can now be shared on mobile
5:18 am
phones prove the path forward could be challenging katya a little. al-jazeera. nigeria's the national assembly went into lockdown early on tuesday after shots were fired during fighting between police and a group of muslim protesters demonstrators like 2 people were shot by police when i tried to enter the assembly building islamic movement of nigeria has protested regularly outside the parliament calling for the release of their leader has been in detention since 2015. the un special rapporteur who conducted an independent probe into the murder of sunday journalist jamal khashoggi is now urging the u.s. to act on her findings agnes made those comments at a conference in london remember last month she released her report that found credible evidence linking the saudi crown prince mohammed bin salman to both the murder and an attempted coverup knave barkha with more from london. ahead of a major conference here in london on press freedom jamal khashoggi name has
5:19 am
featured very highly indeed attending this discussion with those who knew him very closely indeed including his fiance and these former editor of the washington post not to mention the un special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions agnes kalama she presented her findings in june and concluded that his murder was a state act and that there was credible evidence linking senior figures within the saudi leadership including the crown prince himself well earlier agnes cullum are told me that because it was an international killing it should be dealt with in an international way and the more pressure should be put on all members of the un to the security council including the saudi kingdom's closest western ally the united states to find out exactly what happened to jamal khashoggi i am alarmed by the fact that the 5 observers from each of the security council
5:20 am
countries are avid loud themself to to be silent and therefore in my view what twee our weakness seen here is saudi arabia pussy very as strategy key and very. smartly trying to make the security council complicit in a possible miscarriage of justice will saudi arabia continues to refute the claims saying that the murder happened as a result of rogue agents who panic during a botched interrogation we know that a number of individuals are on trial behind closed doors in saudi some of them facing the death penalty but i guess kalamata is worried that whatever is happening there for significantly short of international judicial standards she has recommended that the international community puts more pressure. on the saudi leadership she's also suggested that the u.n.
5:21 am
creates its own investigation that would lead to individual liability for his killing but that requires momentum for the moment she believes is somewhat lacking . and the u.a.e. appears to be withdrawing some of its forces from yemen that was according to media reports quoting senior iraqi officials they're describing it as a redeployment and says they remain committed to the saudi led coalition fighting the hooty rebels and 2015 the rebels though still calling for a full withdrawal tomorrow i'll shell has more. after 4 years of fighting reports say the emirates are reducing their troop numbers to pave the way for what they're calling a strategic redeployment plan in yemen the 4th use in those opposed to the u.a.e. saudi war say it's a withdraw a sign that the 2 countries are losing the war. in reality it's difficult to know the exact reason behind the troop withdrawal 4 years since the war began what
5:22 am
started off as an international coalition of arab and muslim countries led by saudi arabia to restore the un backed government in yemen has turned into a coalition of true saudi and the u.a.e. bombing yemen and transforming it into the worst humanitarian catastrophe on earth according to the united nations 4 years ago there was almost daily briefings by the saudi led coalition troop numbers were given together with military targets. but since human rights violations have emerged and accusations of war crimes have been leveled against the saudis and the immoralities information has been much less forthcoming. activists have filed court cases in the united kingdom petitioning the government to stop selling british weapons to the gulf countries targets in yemen particularly saudi arabia last month the u.k. supreme court ruled that on sales to saudi arabia were unlawful a decision the u.k. government is appealing. in the united states members of both the house and the
5:23 am
senate are demanding that on sale stop true and that according to nobel prize recipients and rights activists who are called carmen is the main reason for the u.a.e. withdrawing troops had. been agen and there this is a partial withdrawal intended to improve the u.a.e. is image in front of the international community this withdrawal has come as a result of the emirates failure in yemen i'm certain that the u.a.e. and saudi arabia will retreat in shame from yemen after they fail completely there was real pressure from the u.k. on the emirates that forced them to withdraw in order to repair their public relations image another important reason is the iranian threat if tension in the region continues the u.a.e. would be a prime target. it's not just international pressure that's been applied on the emirates the 4th u.s. backed by iran have proven to be a formidable enemy taking the war to the u.a.e. they claimed responsibility for an attack on international airport last year when
5:24 am
an unmanned drone was able to reach its target without being intercepted while debates will continue over the reasons behind the reduction in forces many will be after 4 years of death and destruction what exactly has been achieved the un recognized government remains on able to govern the cooties maintain control over yemen the only difference is more yemeni men women and children have been killed or had their livelihoods destroyed. meanwhile a spokesman for the who says they have new weapons to strike targets in saudi arabia al-jazeera cannot independently verify the images however shown in his presentation i have on but it is a recognition drone that can fly over the skies of saudi arabia with it depth of over 500 kilometers as you can see on the screen it is the recognition some odd one you can reach into a very deep areas in enemy territory and it is a huge achievement you can transmit everything it recognizes and all the
5:25 am
information it collects directly from the operation theater carter has signed several economic deals with the united states as the 2 countries look to strengthen their relationship is agreements were announced at the white house with the emir of qatar i mean been hammered out there any met president donald trump a visit marking quite a turnaround in ties between the 2 countries and our diplomatic editor james spader's reports from washington. what a difference 2 years makes in front of the emyr of catarrh and president trump trade and defense agreements between the 2 countries was signed said to total billions of dollars but these long term allies didn't look so friendly in 2017 just weeks after president trump made his 1st foreign trip to saudi arabia that country the united arab emirates egypt and bahrain launched a land and sea blockade of cattle the suspicion was that some around president trump had given this the green light the president himself was talking tough stop
5:26 am
funding stop teaching hate and stop the killing for guitar we want you back among. the unity of responsible nations today it's all very different it's a great honor to be with the emir of qatar a highly respected man a real leader in a large part of the world in a very important part of the world as you mentioned we enjoy a very great relationship between qatar and the benefit of america we're doing a lot together so what's changed the energy aviation and defense they all signed here at the white house a part of it president trump sees every relationship between the u.s. and other countries in transactional terms what is the profit and loss on the balance sheet but it's also about the missteps that have been made by the countries that continue to blockade catarrh. saudi in the u.a.e.
5:27 am
bogged down in a war in yemen and the military operations there continue to cause the death of civilians the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi is believed by many human rights experts including a un special rapporteur to have been a planned execution conducted by the saudis state and the reputation of egypt's president sisi continues to be tarnished by his country's repression and human rights abuses the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o is well aware as tensions rise with iran catarrh has a pivotal role hosting the biggest u.s. airbase in the region doha is also the venue where american diplomats and the taliban are talking no breakthrough yet but it is the diplomatic initiative that's made the most progress towards ending the longest war in u.s. history james pays out 0 washington china is demanding however the
5:28 am
united states immediately counsel a potential $2200000000.00 arms sales to taiwan china still considers taiwan to be breakaway province when he reports from beijing. taiwan's military is built on equipment from the united states its main supply of arms announcements from washington of sales are always met by an angry response from china and this was no difference it's a crude interference in china's internal affairs and a harms china's servant and a security interest china is strong least dissensions far and thoroughly opposed to this and has already made a stern representations to the u.s. side and. china regards taiwan as a breakaway province that it will one day retake that threat is why taipei feels the need to regularly upgrade its weaponry this deal may be viewed by beijing as particularly provocative if it's approved by the united states congress at $2200000000.00 it would be the largest since donald trump took over as president
5:29 am
taiwan in the u.s. continue to consolidate our security partnership together will guard the democracy and freedom of the taiwan strait and stability in the indo-pacific region the type of equipment included in the deal is likely to further anger china in a bid to modernize its defenses taiwan will buy and craft missiles and battle tanks the timing of this deal is also likely to be viewed as provocative by beijing it comes amid a truce in a trade war between china and the united states with negotiations possibly restarting next week the u.s. and china have imposed tariffs on each other's goods over the past year but the 2 presidents agreed to pause hostilities when they met at the g 20 summit in japan last month you they also reiterated their close personal friendship which may be put to the test again if this latest oms deal goes through. beijing. in the news ahead the u.n.

5:36 am
historically have seen aviation as a bit of a no go area intensive taxation or other measures that could help tackle emissions let's hope that at the moment there's that there's a bit more consumer readiness to accept that if we go. to tackle the planet's emergency we're going to have to make changes in our lives there passenger numbers are expected to double in the next 2 decades the french government says the situation is urgent and that other even ations should do more to crack down on an industry which is one of the world's biggest polluters natasha buckler al-jazeera paris is hardline interior minister has shut down a large migrant center in sicily so they need toward the center prior to its closing and underlined the drop in migrant arrivals in the country this was once the biggest reception center in europe it had been due to close for a number of years after prosecutors uncovered what they said were illegal
