my ass waiter thank you for joining us u.s. president donald trump has said he will not recertify the two thousand and fifteen iran nuclear deal the multilateral agreement calls for iran to shelve its disputed nuclear program and in exchange the international community would ease sanctions trump accused have run of violating the quote spirit of the agreement but stopped short of canceling the deal instead he's called on u.s. lawmakers and international partners to fix its flaws the agreement stipulates that the u.s. president must certify to congress that iran is complying with the agreement every ninety days trump has done this twice before but has now refused to sign ahead of sunday's dad line. now congress must decide whether to reimpose sanctions and scrap the deal here's 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 has welcomed trump's announcement prime minister benjamin netanyahu congratulated the u.s. president for what he called a quote courageous step the response from other world leaders has been less than enthusiastic and the iran deal took more than a decade to negotiate between the u.s. iran china. scuse me 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 mess of 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 club in action which is appealing 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 gabriele said
6:05 pm
scrapping the treaty would send a quote dangerous signal in the show to do it 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 more you know if 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. hard that they want to

hot 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 trees 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 if i could change its mind right now for iranians trama speech was a major violation of the deal but he didn't say anything that is completely unacceptable for them for example you do you sort of fight 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
6:07 pm
a red line for to iran so for now the deal is alive but that could of course change if the congress decides to cancel it by re 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 to president trump through fusil 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.
6:08 pm
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 of the international atomic energy agency. said that iran is complying with the deal so that of course a good argument for them and also what would it mean like if trying cancel 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 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 cancels the deal he approves them right so that would weaken president rouhani
6:09 pm
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 the nuclear program and probably spend as much money on it as never before. the chopper thank you very much for your insights. to australia 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 it looks like a quiet stretch of the light

a river on the border between austrian hungary but right here authorities have caught more than eighty migrants trying to illegally cross in the weeks leading up to the austrian election or. especially along the river for many foreigners in need of help and protection are using it to make the crossing into austria. social for this man is a big reason austria says it will no longer accept asylum seekers sebastian courts who has campaigned mostly on his successful push to close off the so-called balkan route at the height of the refugee crisis in twenty fifteen austria took in one thousand asylum seekers 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. but courts as immigration stance is soft compared to the anti islam rhetoric and polarizing statistics of the leader of the populist 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. such messages resonate strongly with voters leaving incumbent chancellor chris john kerry and his left wing social democrats behind in the polls a swing to the right in austria looks more and more likely. now to some other stories making news around the world
