disagreement over the past 3 years now the french diplomat emmanuel bond for his part said that he's not here as a mediator between washington and tehran and that he's really here to try and broker some kind of a cease fire when it comes to this economic warfare that's been waged on iran and he said that the french president emanuel micron believes that the tensions escalating tensions in this region is as a result of these economic pressures on iran so there is really an effort by the french government to try and salvage this nuclear deal that's really it apparently falling apart but all sides are trying to stay committed to it but the iranians are adamant that as long as the europeans don't hold up their end of the deal the reins will continue to scale back their commitment is there still a sense that. iran is prepared to talk talk to the europeans maybe even talk in directly to the americans but they will never be threatened into going back to the negotiating table. well they've said that the iranians have said
that they are always open for dialogue but when it comes to dialogue with the u.s. it's a different story they have said that they will be willing to talk to the americans as long as they don't impose any sanctions and lift the current ones that are in place they are very very upset about the oil and banking sanctions that have been placed on iran over the past few months they say they can't really hold talks under these conditions so until the united states government takes out these sanctions the reins won't talk to them and really they don't feel like they should be bully into negotiations even the highest authority in iran the supreme leader has said they are not really in the iran's best interest when it comes to the americans that the americans have proven over and over again that they can't be trusted even if we do have conversations with them they really do what they want at the end of the day so there really isn't much appetite for any negotiations with the united states but
they are certainly appetite to discuss this nuclear agreement and its future with the remaining signatories thanks very much. to the i.a.e.a. meeting in vienna join a whole is there for us jonah what we expecting to hear. i think this meeting taking place behind closed doors is likely to be pretty adversarial and quite possibly pretty in cancun. echoing what dorsett was saying there the even the radian envoy to the i.a.e.a. gave an interview to the german newspaper ahead of this meeting affirming that iran has because of the failure of the other signatories of the deal to meet their commitments both the united states and now after its unilateral withdrawal and maybe 3 the european signatories britain france and germany for failing to run seem to be doing. pretty. well now indian boy in that
interview going to meet their obligations but that isn't the sort of around the world on the united states is looking for even calling this meeting of a mall board of governors of the i.a.e.a. in the 1st place the united states of course would like nothing better than the i $88.00 to formally declare iran in full breach of the deal and told me to the deal completely that is not likely to happen. there are parties with very different views on all of this the 3 the europeans of course still trying to keep this deal alive to the extent they can they are not ready to pull the string the trigger on the official dispute mechanism under the deal that could lead to that declaration everybody seems to agree that these advances in uranium enrichment are still pretty marginal at this stage and of course in the in the room as well russia and china are also signatories the j.c.b. away the nuclear deal they take the view that iran is justified in its actions because of the breaches undertaken by the others so not much headway that if you want the u.s. can see to make here other than to keep the pressure up on iran to bring it back to
the table and the europeans that it wants of course to take a much harder line against iran in all of this ok journey thanks very much. to move likely to further raise tensions between the u.s. and iran washington is trying to pull together a military coalition to patrol the important shipping route off the coast of iran john hendren has that from washington. the united states is developing a military coalition to police the strait of hormuz general joseph dunford the highest ranking u.s. military official is the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff says the u.s. is working with a number of nations to identify who has in his words the political will to join in this coalition and offer military forces for that operation president donald trump says the united states should not pay for this that it should be an international military force but that does present the potential for conflict with iran after all it was only weeks ago when the united states almost launched an air strike on iran
that's according to president trump who says we were within 10 minutes of a conflict in that region meanwhile brian hook the u.s. special representative for iran policy spoke to al jazeera this is what he had to say about sanctions 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 united states position has not softened meanwhile iran has announced it is violating the nuclear enrichment levels that it agreed to and that multinational agreement from which the u.s. has pulled out so that standoff intensifies and the potential for conflict only increases . 3 waterways of vital for shipping more than half of the world's crude oil the
suez canal. strait and the straits of hormuz the straits of hormuz separates iran and the united arab emirates 20 percent of the world's oil that's around $80000000.00 barrels of oil per day is shipped through that iran has threatened to close it if it's oil exports of blocks not far away the gulf of amman for oil tankers would. damaged off the coast of java in the u.a.e. you may the 12th a month later another tanker was set on fire and another one was damaged the u.s. and its allies also want to patrol another major shipping route the man that straight the narrow channel separates yemen on the arabian peninsula and djibouti and eritrea in the horn of africa filled icon is a security risk analyst he says a military patrol in the gulf would require a great amount of course nation this is their main channel through to the gulf and not see the main channel to get the oil out and they are they are worried and
confused as what to do so the idea of click a thing or be giving commercial shipping some point protection is also your huge amount of pressure from nations so how does it work well you can provide some form escort you can provide military vessels in the area and you can create a congresses now we've seen this already in operation further south in dr baden where this was implemented in response to piracy now it does require processes procedures and it would have to comply and not everyone would choose to comply so to extent what you can do is provide a measure of protection provided by military vessels for a controlled transit area. still to come for you here on the news hour. how libya's warlord how lethal how tough got his hands on american antitank missiles. we'll look at the state of media freedom as a major conference gets underway in london. and in sports
a bit of history was made at the major league all-star game in cleveland fara will be here with the details. the french military has today admitted that antitank missiles found during a raid in libya belonged to the french army the us made javelin missiles were recovered from the ward after a space on the outskirts of tripoli french military is saying the missiles were intended for the self protection of a french military unit deployed for counterterrorism operations in libya but documentation found with the munitions suggest they belonged to the united arab emirates. were like these are the u.s. made weapons and these are the chinese made weapons the contract written on them comes from the united arab emirates the last one we have found modern weapons while libya is under embargoed these weapons were imported from certain countries these
countries should use them to defend themselves but instead they became involved in the conflict and the libyan blood that. natasha butler has more now from paris. a of p. and where it is news agencies say that they have received a statement from the french defense ministry and in a statement the french defense ministry says these missiles are indeed french they are u.s. made javelin missiles or the french gave to their forces operating in libya now that's interesting in itself because france has always been very vague about its presence in libya now the french defense ministry statement also says that these missiles were in fact defective they were supposed to be destroyed what the statement doesn't say though is how on earth these missiles ended up in the hands of forces who are loyal to khalifa haftar i mean that's the big question and potentially a very embarrassing one for the french government because the french government
have always said that they are not supplying any weapons or to libya that would be in breach of a u.n. arms embargo and over the years campaign is and critics have accused france of supporting. in the sense that france perhaps feels after is someone that they can partner with in the fight against fighters in the region but france has always denied that they have denied that support and said that they backed publicly the u.n. peace process at least 24 people have been killed in fighting between rival tribes in papua new guinea it happened in the remote province of hella police say the killings could be in retaliation for an earlier attack. the internet's been switched back on in saddam in a month after military leaders ordered an end to the peaceful sit in at army headquarters with $100.00 protesters were killed last suspects internet services were cut to cover up the recent military crackdown catcha lopez has more.

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 to 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
phones prove the path forward could be challenging cuts a little. al-jazeera. ok time she will weather his cabin getting a bit eventful in the gulf that's right it's been very very quiet from the beginning of hurricane season which started june 1st until just about now but things are beginning to change this is the gulf of mexico there's united states there is florida that mess of clouds that you see right there that is potentially going to be our next tropical depression and tropical storm we think over the next several days you can see how those clouds are really coming together we're going to be seeing. i'm winds in this area now we already have marine warnings that are going up across the region it's going to start off small so we think by the end of the day today we're looking at a trouble depression as i said if this becomes a tropical storm it will be tropical storm barry it's going to be making its way towards the west it's going to stay in open water some have his precept is going to stay in the open water over the next couple of days but slowly as it goes into the weekend it is going to intensify and by the time we get towards friday because we
friday we think it is going to be a tropical storm at this point though it could continue to go to the west or it could be making a turn towards the coast and some of the models are actually saying that this potentially is going to be a hurricane by the time it makes either landfall on saturday or sunday in terms of the pre-suppose of the next 72 hours most of it stays in open water but we could still see about 100 millimeters of rain along the coastal areas so still flooding is going to be a potential we'll be watching this over the next few days. karen thanks very much the indian government investigating doctors accused of performing thousands of unnecessary operations on female farm workers the women say they would turn to paying hundreds of dollars to remove the reproductive organs the probe is focusing on dozens of privately run hospitals in the western states of maharashtra elizabeth purana met some of the women who'd been affected by getting.

this is a dialogue i'm reading about it for not athelstan yet on international media and on t.v. a pressure to stop its competition with skepticism because there's a lot of it on my everyone has a voice we are being taken advantage of just because we are small community without any network just huge health join the global conversation announces iraq all they want to do is start the debate the same kind of debate that we have here in the street. when the news breaks the protesters and the story building that's. when people mean to be you know being treated as if you know. if you don't have the right to know. and the story needs to be told. how does iraq has teams on the ground to bring you news we need to move troops and light
names on air and online. welcome back you're watching the al-jazeera news live from doha i'm peter dopy these are the headlines the u.k. ambassador to the u.s. is quits after a dispute with the u.s. president donald trump leaked memos from call the white house dysfunctional and described trump as inept and insecure. iranian president hassan rouhani has defended his country as you redeem enrichment program saying it's peaceful and still within the framework of the 2015 nuclear deal. iran's pull back from its
commitments to the deal is the focus of an emergency meeting in vienna the u.s. requested the international atomic energy agency session iranian and u.s. envoys are expected to address the group. and i break of measles in chad has caused a national emergency to be declared at other african countries are also struggling to contain this preventable disease patient numbers of sort of 700 percent in some locations is nicholas hike. it is so much it hurts. the fever won't go down. and this baby's lungs are filled with. these are children on the brink of death because they were not vaccinated against measles we didn't know what it was we thought it was malaria it's only here that they told us she has measles you don't understand we are so scared of losing her they keep giving her injections but she isn't doing any better this preventable
disease has become an epidemic spreading faster than it can be contained. doctors were. borders have set up one crisis center after the other vaccinating children to stop them contracting measles. we're very worried because measles combined with malnutrition is a dangerous mix and there aren't enough international actors helping chad the ministry of health to tackle this growing outbreak it's an outbreak that isn't just affecting chad take a look at these numbers according to the u.n. there has been a global increase of cases of measles by 300 percent in the last year how many of you here are worried about it at the heart of the crisis is both fear and belief that the measles vaccine is dangerous by an increasing number of people in the west and the lack of access to vaccines in other parts of the world. you know jeremy more than 90 percent of children have not been vaccinated because they don't have
access to health centers and so most children under 5 are infected with the measles virus. it is highly contagious for both children and adults and so this by u.s. troops to fight this age old virus measles is thriving indeed doing the lives of thousands here in chad and around the world. nicholas hawk al-jazeera. joining us here on the news story or small saucy is a geneticist and a molecular biologist at the university of north korea he joins us from newcastle in the u.k. mr moss declaring a national emergency is that the the best reaction is that the most appropriate reaction. at this point in time yes the government of a country that is affected by a disease such as measles needs to make that declaration in order to allow to to recruit the kind of support necessary from the international community to allow
them to tackle the outbreak why have the numbers increased so dramatically in very specific areas here. so earlier this year we saw an influx of about 929-5000 immigrants well refugees actually from the central african republic due to ongoing war for. these people brought with them a lot of disease however i must point out that measles was in. this region well before this influx of these refugees their race there was a concentrated compounded try and treat these individuals to try and vaccinate them to prevent the outbreak becoming more in control but it's quite. we've lost the line that newcastle will try and go back to story if we can if and of this news hour kenya's hosting a counterterrorism summit for african leaders the u.n.
sponsored talks are designed to share information and form a united front of africans have been killed and millions displaced in various countries while the threats include attacks by al qaeda and eisler fillets in the western region of so help a joint regional task force there has so far failed to stop the killings boko haram fighters in nigeria are responsible for a humanitarian crisis spreading across the lake chad region at least 27000 people have been killed over a period of 10 years in the east u.s. forces have joined an african union operation against al shabaab whose fighters continue to launch attacks despite losing strongholds in somalia malcolm webb has the latest from that conference in nairobi. to the secretary general of the united nations antonio get areas of speaking one of the opening sessions and he urged the international community to join forces and participate together to prevent violence extremism and we'll fill you heard from the president of kenya who kenya after he
said that it's a pan african problem that needs a pan-african solution he said terrorism is a threat to the nation the state he talked about terror groups that run sophisticated public relations operations or provide services in areas where there's a void of governance he said that keeping hold and control of territory is crucial in in the fight against these armed groups both dignitaries unveiled actually mention this victory general of the united nations among the factors that drive people towards violent extremism in not only poverty but all 50 states violence and of course it's either violence from the state or the lack of protection provided by the state that in many cases do drive people to take up arms. slow progress is being made to rebuild the ruined city of mosul in northern iraq it's 2 years since the iraqi army drove isis fighters from the capital of the self
declared caliphate as a summer binge of reports reconstruction efforts aren't being helped by the sanctions imposed by the united states on iraq's ally iraq. this is the old city of mosul but due years after isis defeat iraq's victory has not still meant the restoration of life as it was before the war much of the city remains in ruins more than 300000 people are still displaced a mix of sectarian division unemployment and security concerns linger on. the main threat and danger remains the neglect of reconstruction in mosul the displaced are still living in limbo all these issues have not been given serious enough attention by the iraqi government. the iraqi government says it's doing all it can and asking international partners to help rebuild the city human agencies estimate it could take tens of millions of dollars in 10 years just to remove mines and explosives. mosul is the capital of isis self declared caliphate in iraq and its leader. made
his only public appearance from the city. it was a tough fight in an urban terrain and posed a challenge to the iraqi army which had earlier to treat it from mosul but iraq's security forces had 2 important allies a u.s. led coalition and iran backed shia militias and back then the united states acknowledged their efforts right now there they had a great role in liberating iraq what is their next role i don't know without me that's a decision for the government of iraq it was an uneasy convergence with so on enemies fighting on the same side against a common target when we should can more and it is obvious that iran and the us are enemies by iraq managed to bring them closer in the fight against i saw there was a marriage of convenience between iran and the. u.s. back then given the fact there was no direct contact between the 2 sides in the battle of mosul in the current escalation between the 2 countries i think it is quite difficult for both sides to cooperate or have their interests crossed paths.
since then the us and iran have designated each other as military's as terrorists escalating tensions has kept the region on edge including iraq which has offered to find common ground between washington and they're on the government in baghdad and the people of mosul need help to rebuild what was destroyed in the war and many here see that cannot happen unless all parties who had a role in inflicting the damage take responsibility for the reconstruction most people in mosul are living one day at a time with a lack of basic services and jobs a bleak future prospects analysts believe that winning the war against isis was probably the easy part the real challenge is maintaining the peace in the long run . out of the era baghdad. ok let's get you more on the story concerning the french admission that antitank missiles phone during a raid in libya belonged to the french army joining us now is andrew smith he's a spokesman for the campaign against the arms trade he joins us from london and are
smith welcome back to al-jazeera how much of an embarrassment is this the french authorities. i think it's very embarrassing for the french authorities because the french government always tells us but it has very rigorous and robust arms control systems but this raises a lot of very important questions we need to know exactly how you force weapons got there who have been used by who they will be used against because 1st raises some very serious concerns what are the main concerns when it comes to breaching the various embargoes that are already in theory in place. which seem to go against a lot of fear embargoes and i think that's where a lot of questions must be directed but also it raises a very important point which is once weapons of left our shores once you've left the factories we don't really have any control over we're ever going to end up going to be used by hoover going to be used against because this isn't even the 1st
time this has happened in libya this month in fact we heard the story only a few days ago both american missiles haven't been sold to the united arab emirates and ending up in libya as well so there's clearly a much bigger issue than this one example but this example crystallized this exactly why we need to be asking questions and why there should be in quietly when we talk about american arms being sold in case we were discussing it last week on inside story you know being sold in that case the united arab emirates the then end up with somebody else so there's the final destination question that has to be asked but this is french arms that were made by the french one assumes for the french so there's there's a small but a systemic problem there perhaps within the system of how the french do what they do for themselves. i think there's a question of a lot of fair end user to receiving and what these got in t's really mean because
while the example is not well it's not exactly the same issue it certainly feels relieved and again this is the sort of information which is only coming out because of the good work being done by investigators and campaigners and groups like that it's not something where government is putting up its hands and admitting fault and fact i'm sure of it we'll hear from giving all the same the assurances given time and again but we really have to question how seriously we take it but there is a very serious issue here and it is and ultimately these weapons can be used to kill and when you're talking about weapons which can be used to kill then we have to the strongest controls possible on where we are who's got them and who where where we might be used and business in london thank you very much. thank you and the moral service has been held in hong kong for a protester who committed suicide the government has made concessions after widespread demonstrations forced the cancellation of an extradition bill but they
haven't gone far enough and they're promising more protests broke reports now from hong kong. months of protests of their their scars on hong kong. the legislative council building has been ransacked and the government in the divided city appears besieged christine loh is a former member of the government who used to be a legislative council and she believes only a determined effort to talk can start to bridge the divide we can actually get through this without being with each other without talking about how communal how community problems then you're not going to get anywhere people know this deep in their heart the getting started is where we need to work hard on the bell instead when chief executive kerry lamb announced on tuesday that the proposed extradition law which has caused so much controversy would not be debated further she also announced measures to try to open dialogue especially with the young but for many
protestors this movement has gone beyond the extradition bill itself it is more about hong kong's fundamental role within china the same issue that 5 years ago drove the so-called down bro movement pushing for greater autonomy and that remains unresolved today the problem seems to be one of inherent dysfunction freedom of expression where you can and your grievances combined with a political system that ensures a pro beijing government seems to guarantee a high degree of unhappiness especially among young people a situation that the pro-democracy groups say can only be resolved by beijing the ultimate solution would be for china to seriously open up and look at hong kong as a positive for a window case a positive example for chinese be democratic.
