4:02 pm
facing serious threats to peace and security all over now to mohammed though his life for as an addis ababa no shortage of serious issues to get through muhammad, what's been happening so far today? well, liz, today all talk is about crews and covet 19, as well as the conflict in if you appear, well, we are in the north and legion are off to gray, where there is a humanitarian crisis of huge proportions unfolding. and ada does is saying they're not getting much access to rich. the people who are living in family like conditions. of course, also these concern about the number of coups these continent as harder for the past . wanted to have years 6 of them in total for them in west africa, which has traditionally been known as the cool belt of african band. they are the
4:03 pm
ease, the shortfalls on covered vaccinations in the continent. only 11 percent of the continents of people have been fully vaccinated so far, and the ease a real need for a push on that. and now joining me to discuss all these a father is a former prime minister of the republic of kenya, rayleigh, or dingo, who is also a high representative on infrastructure for the african union studying. are you seeing a resurgence of cruise in africa? there seems to be a disconnect between the lead us and the people. what in your opinion is causing this resurgence off a cruise when people were thinking that africa was finally on the road to democracy . well, it is a ugly, a very regrettable development. the continent that to did democratization process, that is, is started out in the early ninety's is on a russian,
4:04 pm
in some parts of a continent. a judge begin being, begin to see generals on the streets. i took me over the governments. i think it is a face, it says to do either. there are luck, tons of the live, to leadership, to actually deliver to the people. and secondly, also changing the constitution's aah to extend their their town. and also the way which elections themselves are held. that the rigging of elections themselves and under the, the, this, the leaders not are willing to, to, to perform according to the requirements of the people. i think this is local. what is a, bring back. these are new to cool soon. and they also real challenge with their
4:05 pm
covered 19 vaccinations in africa. only 11 percent. only 2 countries have managed to vaccinate as 70 percent of their people. and that's say shells and malicious were you know, have got very tiny populations. what is an, i mean, is there a remedy for this and you do think africa could be able to em intensify its physician process? certainly is. i think a, this is an area where there has to be a bit of compulsion that the government has really to come out a form of ounce will. ford and just a curry, foster people to go and get vaccinated cuz it is for them for their protection. for example, i so, and king of the government saying that if you don't have vaccination, you're not going to get government services. example, some people are single is unconstitutional and son,
4:06 pm
but i think if busy being done in order to save life and save the people in the government is entitled to took all the measures necessary to ensure that people get vaccinated. what the excuse been given is that there is no money to take them vaccines that have been donated by the rest of the world, from the deposed to the arms of the people who need them. is that a good excuse, in your opinion? my view that's is basically a empty excuse the really the, i mean, the government malpractice issues, they can actually cut off certain services in order to be able to provide this. it cannot tell me that in this, in a government what his name that cannot transport vaccines to the people. i mean that the government should not be existing. so i don't think that that is the reason a tall and id to acrylic because of the going very but lights. so go and just have
4:07 pm
to come out openly and ensure that the people are vaccinated even if they have to use force to good people vaccinated. thank you very much, former prime minister of kenya for a low dingo who is also a special envoy for infrastructure for the african union. but julius foreman, thank you for that mohammed. and over the latest live and addis ababa, the painting more head on the news hour, including in shock and syria, neighbors struggle to believe how isolate leader head among them before us special forces tracked him down. and find out why mike pence is labeled a statement by former us president donald trump, an american and sport a ran. miss fernando is manchester united. adopted for the f. a cup that's coming up with leah. ah,
4:08 pm
now the u. s. is waving sanctions on iran's civilian nuclear program has talked to save the 2015 agreement, reach a critical stage on trump ended the waiver 2 years ago when he was president. that answers at once guarantees from washington for the revival of the agreement is go now to our correspondent wrestled, said that his joining us live from the iranian capital that on and what has been the reaction there as well. so for there has been a reaction from the minister of foreign affairs, the minister of foreign affairs. a miracle lawyer has said that they are the posh of removal of their sanctions, is interpreting as a good intention, but is not enough. something tangible needs to happen on day or on the ground. iranians are from their beginning on have been quite clear that that, that they want the immediate law all of the sanctions regarding the nuclear file.
4:09 pm
but on the other hand, there has been another reaction coming from a very much powerful institution in the round the supreme a national security council, and that the secretary of that institution audition. honey just today has tweeted that they did their best. the euro's legal right to continue our research and development and maintain its peaceful nuclear capabilities and achievements will not be restricted by any off the agreement. so what does that mean in the many experts say that while the uranium since the beginning have been asking for the guarantees means the iranians are saying that as it happened in 2018, the, the, probably the president of the us be through from the deal and it was collapsed, so just not to let that kind of repetition of the same scenario. they are asking that deal should be go beyond the by the administration. and american software has
4:10 pm
said that it is almost impossible considering the american political system. so by these 2, we are the show currently, a couple official iranian official is standing a clear message to the americans. if the deal is not going to be binding for the americans. don is not going to be binding a for iranian as well, or at risk will thank you for that. especially with the reaction from pare down now, washington has imposed round after round of sanctions on iran since $979.00. as oil and banking factors received sanctions relief from the us, you and you out in 2015 in exchange for temporary limits on its nuclear program. the trump administration that we imposed all us sanctions and add a new one, sandra, maximum pressure campaign. now the state department says it's waiving certain sanctions to allow other countries to help around address safety risks as it's nuclear sides and carry out non proliferation work that says it should not be considered sanctions relief. well,
4:11 pm
let's get more on this. now we're joined by having the salvi, he's professor of political science. the university of fed on i is joining us by scott. very good to have you with us on al jazeera. so the americans, you know, really stressing that this isn't a concession to iran but isn't good enough, is enough rather of a good will just to do thing to lead to progress and the talks. yes . so the waiver basically allows non proliferation work to be conducted by foreign companies, any rainy nuclear sites. and this could potentially facilitate the technical negotiations that are currently taking place in vienna on nevertheless, it's not really the kind of sanction relief iran is seeking. or that has to do more with the ron's economy. the waiver that was announced actually has no impact on your ons economy. in fact, a new news, which is a media outlet, very close to the supreme national. you amy in security council called the move,
4:12 pm
very symbolic and something that can't really affect the outcome of the negotiations. i think the move that iran was seeking from the americans as a sign of good well, or was the on blocking of uranian foreign assets which have been frozen in countries such as south korea and japan and are worth billions of dollars. what do you think it will take to break this deadlock in the negotiations? you know, with iran maintaining that all sanctions imposed since 2018 must be lifted and the us wanting to keep some in place? well, i think are many of the sanctions that donald trump implemented were precisely and deliberately designed to actually prevent a return to the deal by the americans. are many of these sanctions have been labeled under a terrorism or human rights are but from your own perspective, if we the, it really doesn't make a difference. what the label of the sanction is. essentially it's going to prevent
4:13 pm
our foreign companies and foreign banks from doing business with you are and i think our iran position is that all of these sanctions have to be lifted for the deal to be revived. right. mr. ma, sorry, thank you very much for that. that is hum at the savvy life horizon fair down. thank you. now thousands of ukrainians in the northeast and city of concave and taking part in the solidarity march. as a situation, the rush of remains tends. the city is located on the border with russia. ukraine, president of them is lensky has expressed concern that if there were any escalation cod could, could be the 1st city to be invaded by russian forces. let's go to our corresponding child stratford. he's joining us live from the end. what's happening there, charles? well, that's right. there all thousands of people who come out to day to the center of car cave. this is the 2nd biggest city in ukraine, used to be the capital of what was then the soviet republic of ukraine
4:14 pm
for a number of decades. it is a huge significance. the city because obviously it is only about an hour drive from here to the russian border. and what we're hearing is reports of tens of thousands of russian forces, russian troops and musician munitions and weapons across that border. now, i'd say a couple of 1000 people here, they marched across the city to this freedom square. when you speak to them, obviously you get a sense of exactly that sense of passion and unity certainly that they are describing here in, in what they, what they say is russian aggression russian expansionism. there's a, a sense that said, despite the ongoing diplomatic efforts, this window for diplomacy is getting increasingly small. so they're all concerns here. just to give you a sense of some of the voices and the people that we've been speaking to or spoke
4:15 pm
to one man who said that yes, he was very afraid of what could happen. but he said that he wouldn't be prepared to fight because he has russians, russian family members, russian relatives, and ukrainian relatives in russia. many the people here though, say that so no matter what russia throws at bay city is as i say, it is so close to the border. they are prepared to defend it. we spoke to one lady who moved out of crimea in 2014 moved here to car cave. she's in contact with people in crimea, and she's saying that the people that she's speaking to say that they're all along lines all. what will ukrainians with, with russian loyalty, allegiance is living in crimea that allowed me recruiting whole sliding off to join the russian military. another man we spoke to, he says that he didn't believe that there would be a war. but it cleans thorazine cannot be trusted. but as i say

this, the city of huge both cultural, political and economic significance. yeah. thousands of people here, this protest goes on. we're expecting to speak. he's later, i'm certainly a show of unified response. so as i say, what the people here describe as being russian aggression. charles, thank you for that child stratford with the latest live for us and cognitive are we going to morocco? now we're rescue team say they are getting closer to reaching a young boy who fell down 830 to me to well, he has been trapped since tuesday and cruise say that to the less than 2 meters away from him. now, these alive pictures from the scene where there are many people gathered around the world as well as the rescue workers themselves. now the team is digging out part of a hillside. it is a delicate and dangerous operation to reach the 5 year old boy. katya
