nuclear deal the multilateral agreement called for iran to shelve its disputed nuclear program and in exchange the international community would ease sanctions trump accused iran of violating the quote spirit of the agreement but stop short of canceling the deal instead he's called on u.s. lawmakers and international partners to fix its flaws in the agreement stipulates that the us president must certify to congress that iran is complying with the agreement every ninety days iran has trumped excuse me had done this twice before but has now refused to sign ahead of sunday's deadline now congress must decide whether to reimpose sanctions and scrap the deal here is more of what trump had to say importantly iran is not living up to the spirit of the deal so today in recognition of the increasing menace posed by iran and after extensive consultations with our allies i am announcing
a new strategy to address the full range of iran's destructive actions i am announcing today that we cannot and will not make this certification we will not continue down a path whose predictable conclusion is more violence more terror and the very real threat of iran's nuclear breakout well israel for one has welcomed to trump's announcement prime minister binyamin that's why now congratulated the u.s. president for what he called a quote courageous step the response from other world leaders has been less than enthusiastic the iran deal took more than a decade to negotiate between the u.s. iran china russia great britain france and germany and was finally signed in two thousand and fifteen. there was dancing in the streets of the iranian capital
tehran when the agreement was finally reached after the massive effort that went into securing the deal to control iran's nuclear program those who'd been instrumental in the negotiations reacted strongly to trump's announcement. more than two years ago exactly in july twenty fifteen the entire international community welcomed the result of twelve years of intense negotiations on the iranian nuclear program one hundred and four pages full of technical details. the joint compressive action. it is not a bilateral agreement it does not belong to any single country and it is not up to any single country to terminate it german foreign minister. said scrapping the treaty would send a quote dangerous signal shouted in the next few weeks we'll do everything in our power to persuade u.s.
congress to uphold the agreement and to discuss how we can change iran's behavior in other areas of middle east politics we believe the agreement must be preserved as the. iranian president hassan rouhani said his country will continue to respect the nuclear deal in spite of trump's quote insults in a speech on state television rouhani said the agreement was much stronger than trump thinks. that we will continue to cooperate with the international atomic energy agency in the framework of international treaties but if someday our interests are not realized and other parties want to violate their commitments they should be aware that iran will not hesitate a moment and will respond to them. that they want to. whether congress will make the changes trump wants remains to be seen it would seem that much of his bluster is for domestic consumption after weeks of divisions
within the republican party and infighting among his aides the president is trying to reassert his campaign priorities and play to his support base. for more on this i'm joined now by our correspondent teresa tropper tree so you've been to iran six or seven times you cover the last election so let's dive in despite trump's announcement iranian president hassan rouhani says he wants to stick to the deal but is there a chance to iran could change its mind right now for iranian strong speech was a major violation of the deal but he didn't say anything that is completely unacceptable for them for example you decertified it but you didn't pull out of it and he announced new sanctions against the revolutionary guards but he didn't label them a terror organization which would have been a red line for tehran so for now the deal is alive but that could of course change if the congress decides to cancel that by really imposing sanctions that were
lifted as part of the deal. so trump has been drawing a lot of fire sense the announcement so let's take a look at what house minority leader nancy pelosi had to say the iran nuclear agreement was the best way to prevent iran from becoming a nuclear armed state the president trumps refusal to recertify is a grave mistake to threatens america's security and our credibility at a very critical time. now of course theresa the thing is this was not just a bilateral agreement between the u.s. and iran this had seven negotiating partners so how much weight does europe really have to throw around in terms of congress's decision that they have to make well if your buns to keep the deal alive it has to try and convince the congress and with the u.s. administration deeply split over the issue politicians in brussels do think they have a chance to convince congress members because they have good arguments on this side after all the international atomic energy agency. said that iran is complying with
the deal so that's of course a good argument for them and also what would it mean like if trump canceled the deal and who would ever want to negotiate with the u.s. again if like reaching a deal and abiding by it doesn't mean anything so of course european politicians will use all their diplomatic measures they have to convince the congress and we've also heard himself making some vague threats about what might happen if the deal were in fact canceled which leaves us with the question what would iran do what iran would not do of course renegotiate because iranians have long been skeptical of whether washington can be trusted when it comes to reaching an agreement. and now if cancels the deal he proves them right so that would weaken president rouhani position because he was the one the driving force behind signing the deal in iran and it would strengthen the hardliners and of course the hardliners just agreed to
the deal because they got sanctions relief and returned and if that is taken away from them of course they will end the limitations on their nuclear program and probably spend as much money on it as never before. trees the chopper thank you very much for your insights. now to some other stories making headlines around the world u.s. backed forces fighting these so-called islamic state say they've reached an agreement to evacuate civilians from the city of raka the coalition is fighting to uproot the extremists from the city the city is the group steve facto capital in syria and has been besieged sense june. the kidnapped couple freed in pakistan this week have returned to canada with three of their children nearly five years after they were abducted in afghanistan canadian joshua boyle and his american wife caitlin coleman were held hostage by the taliban linked conny network they were kidnapped while backpacking in afghanistan in two thousand and twelve
four people died after a cargo plane crashed into the sea off of ivory coast the aircraft chartered by the french military crash shortly after taking off from the international airport in. the four dead were moldova and while the french were for french nationals were among those injured. to austria now where national elections are taking place this sunday the outcome is expected to swing the country's politics sharply to the right with voters backing two major parties that have campaigned on fears of immigration and islam polls show the election is likely to result in a government between austria's conservative and far right populist parties border security and refugee policy have been the hot button issues of this campaign election. it looks like a quiet stretch of the light a river on the border of austria and hungary but right here authorities have caught
more than eighty migrants trying to illegally cross in the weeks leading up to the austrian election. and especially along the lighter river many foreigners in need of help and protection are using it to make the crossing into austria. social from austria took in ninety thousand asylum seekers at the height of the refugee crisis in twenty fifteen but now says it will not take anymore one of the reasons is this man sebastien kreutz who has campaigned mostly on his successful push to close off the so-called balkan route. i think guns and i'm going to take a very clear path which will reduce illegal migration to zero those who try to enter illegally must be stopped at the border taken care of and then sent back the traffickers can't be the ones to decide who gets through and not we as a republic or the european union. kurtz's hardline immigration stance looks
soft compared to the anti islam rhetoric of the leader of the nationalist freedom party. in vienna and other cities there are already more muslim than catholic children at primary schools and high schools this is due to the irresponsible policies of the government which attempted to replace our own population. i say let's exchange these politicians before they manage to completely replace us. these messages are resonating strongly with voters leaving incumbent chancellor clews john cameron and his left wing social democrats behind in the polls a swing to the right in austria seems inevitable. well in the u.s. the academy of motion picture arts and sciences is set to hold an emergency meeting to discuss expelling producer harvey weinstein this comes as testimonials of women
accusing weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse have been pouring in pressure on weinstein is increasing as more and more women describe uncomfortable meetings he requested with them in hotels. how quickly he has fallen harvey weinstein was hollywood's golden producer. and i least he mixed with america's top celebrities. membership of the oscars academy is a seal of approval from the hollywood elite and expulsion would be highly unusual that the allegations against harvey once on a very grave actor ashley judd accused him of sexual harassment. and others like rose mcgowan broke their silence she kissed him of writing her. now it to be broken more and more female actors supporting those who speak out against lazy hollywood bosses. and you know what i mean for the women to stand up and say no honey that's not the way it's very beautiful because all those young girls who
would have thought that's the way are now instead of like walking into that room thinking it's the only way about to sell their souls to the devil they can stand up and say no loser one son denies allegations of non consensual sex and says he's checked into rehab he's been sacked as boss of his own production company and now his possible exclusion from the cademy of motion pictures arts and sciences it would mock his official fall from the heights of hollywood. on to soccer now and high drama last night as scott hosted a winless cologne in the bundesliga match up to a cart took the lead in the first half but cologne defender dominique heintz managed a sublime goal that even the score with just thirteen minutes to go the hosts got lucky in injury time when a substitute colos shot took a deflection and dribbled in crowning stroke dart with another win. a masterful display of tennis at the shanghai masters and rafael nadal has moved into the
