9:02 pm
athens is expecting a 3-year deal including debt restructuring and growth package. including sales tax hikes and pension cuts something greek voters rejected in a referendum. in return greece would get a $59 billion bailout. the final judgment will come on sunday when the members will gather to discuss the reform plan. simon mcgregor-wood is in athens with the later. >> reporter: greeks who want to stay in the euro took to the square on thursday. they are the majority. what price to they pay for a deal. all day the greek government worked on the proposal, staking to a defiant tone. >> after two failed bailouts, we don't want to add a third, suffering, deprivation of the greek people, which will not
9:03 pm
give any prospect in the country. >> reporter: greeks wonder if debts will be written off. a so-called haircut. angela merkel appears to be taking a hard line. >> i said a classic hair cut is out of the question for me. that has not changed between yesterday and today. >> away from the political posturing the greek economy is grinding to a halt. the weary lines of atms are a reality, it goes deeper. take the olive business, one of greece's biggest. it keeps the economy ticking over. there's over 500,000 olive growers. greece is the third largest producer in the world. hard times are worse by the bank closures. this olive grove a few miles outside of athens is typical of tens of thousands of small-scale producers making up the heart of
9:04 pm
the greek olive oil industry, and these people are hit by the banking closure, many losing faith in the banking system and are demanding cash for their crops. chris runs a medium sized olive oil company and says person of -- suspicion of the banks and reliance on cash gives his business another month. after that, who knows. i think they'll have a deal. it will be like an oxygen. a deal is oxygen. it will be worse. >> long gone is the euphoria of a no vote, replaced with real anxiety, and a fear that the economy is on the point of collapse. greece is approaching a defining moment in history, in which the economic pain is likely to get worse before it gets better. joining us from washington d.c. is an economics reporter from "the wall street journal",
9:05 pm
who has been following the greek crisis. good to have you with us. this last-minute plan as much as we know of it means more austerity and sacrifice for the greek people. is it enough for greece to get the bail out it needs. >> the thing is the extreme hardening on both sides. you have the greek referendum frowned upon which the grech officials. it was seen by others including noted u.s. economists as a fair way to get democrating backing for a debt deal. politically, it seems to have backfired in the sense that the european position hardened and there doesn't seem to be a willingness to compromise. we could have this conversation
9:06 pm
a year ago or two years ago. we have been on the brink over and over. another question is has the two sides grown so far apart that they are no longer able to come together. >> that's the big question. >> the international monetary fund and u.s. weighed in saying the greek debt is unsustainable, putting pressure on angela merkel to forgive some of greece's debt. she said all along she not support a haircut. >> i think if there's a deal there'll be a compromise they don't call it a hair cut, but there's a reprofiling of the debt. which means creditors don't take a hit, but are paid over a longer period in smaller
9:07 pm
increments. angela merkel staked political capital on the notion that enough is enough and the germans, as they think of it fund greek bailouts. for her to change the position publicly is a political blow. there's little domestic support. for break aide in germany. >> if the european commission reach an agreement, parliaments, including greeces could have their say. could it be a problem, that the european countries say they don't want to give that much and others don't either. >> absolutely there's all political factors. that's the short term. let say you get a deal that is semisatisfactory to all parties. what does that get us more austerity in greece and the pattern is when you implement more austerity, you get
9:08 pm
continued weakness in the economy, and the debt to g.d.p. increases rather than decreasing. if we get a deal we could be here a year from now having the same discussion. >> you could create a vicious cycle. that brings up the question. reports are that medicines, including insulin for diabetics is getting scarce. i have a friend in greece saying people are terrified, waiting and hoping. how bodily do the greek people want a deal. >> this is the scary part. this is the political leverage that officials exercise. in part because of sway over the european bank. pressure not to raise funding. therefore, in effect causing a shut down. they've been using it to negotiate leverage.
9:09 pm
we'll squeeze you out, essentially. that is what happens. the tragic part is a lot of people that have little to do with the creation or paying the price including the youth that didn't get to vote. >> interesting days ahead. thank you for being with us. strong words from the u.s. secretary of state john kerry saying he'll walk away from the iranian nuclear talks if tough decisions are not made second. diplomatic editor james bays is in vienna and has more on the frustrations. >> reporter: the six countries meeting to discuss iran but
9:10 pm
after intense talkingses john kerry came out to brief the reporters. there were points of disagreement and he'd stay for now. >> we are here, we believe we are making real progress towards a comprehensive deal. as i have said many times, and as i discussed with president obama last night, we are not going to sit at the negotiating table forever. we also recognise that we shouldn't get up and leave simply because the clock strikes midnight. his iranian counterpart did not come down to meet the press, when he appeared, i tried to get his comment. >> do you think you'll get a deal in the end. >> i wouldn't be here if i didn't think that. >> why would i be here if i didn't think that. earlier optimism about the prospect of a deal had come from russia, where iranian president hassan rouhani is a guest at a summit organised by vladimir
9:11 pm
putin. his foreign minister is there. one of the key players in the talks. >> based on the principle of taking consecutive and mutual decisions, we are on the verge of meeting not an intermediate, but a final and comprehensive agreement. it is within reach. >> the reason the u.s. and some of its western partners were pushing hard for a deal was because of u.s. legislation. it says the u.s. congress gets 30 days to examine the deal. as long as it done by july the 9th. that own't happen. it doubles to 60 days, another deadline missed as the intense meetings continue in this luxury hotel. for more we are joined by al jazeera's ali velshi. he has been in tehran for the
9:12 pm
past couple. -- couple of weeks. are iranians hopeful for a deal even though the deadline keeps getting extended. >> iranians are tired at the moment. it's sunrise in tehran and this is one of the holiest weeks in the islamic calendar. for a couple of nights this week iranians have been praying all night. they are going home at sunrise. i have not had a chance to get down and see what the newspapers say. this morning's newspapers wednesday morning's, said we had a headline saying "we are victorious", with what iran would like look after a deal is done. the press is reporting that a deal is almost there, a draft is ready, all there but for the signings. the russians are talking about how it's done no substantive division, and then you have what james said that the deal is not
9:13 pm
done. something is keeping them apart. iranians are hopeful. they want the sanctions removed. and something has changed. they are coming to believe this is going to be the case and a punctuation was put on that when the iranian foreign minister penned an op ed in the 'financial times' talking about how they've ner been closer almost a plea to the other parties to say let's get this done. >> on the other hand thousands are expected to take to the streets for a major demonstration in part against the u.s. how significant is that? >> yes, so this is the last friday of ramadan, and it's cross the muslim world in the arab countries it'sal kud's day, the term for jerusalem, the day they protest the zionist occupation of palestine. a lot of clerics said make this
9:14 pm
a protest that is bigger make it about america. it's almost the hard line taking a position. the government is interested it's in a tough place. the president got elected in 2013 on a mission to open things up to the west. i spoke to a gentleman. who used to be the american ambassador - sorry, the iranian ambassador to the united nations and to france. i asked him. i said is the business with israel the dislike that the iranian official position has for israel, can it be fixed in a way to allow everywhere to move forward. here is what he told me. >> if the israel attention to them attention to democracy, to going back to the lands of palestine, everything is possible. nothing is impossible.
9:15 pm
so antonio, here is the case. people in these positions are saying, you know, in politics anything is possible. there's a language of the possible in iran. >> ali velshi in adam raney, we'll have more in ali velshi on -- ali velshi in tehran we'll have more in "ali velshi on target". a top official killed in a u.s. drone strike. more than two dozen others died in a strike on tuesday. he was a member of the pakistani taliban, before defecting to i.s.i.l. he was thought to be the group spokesman. the head of the yemen branch is urging followers to attack the u.s. according to an intelligence group, translating an online recording of a speech public speech as leader of al qaeda. they succeeded.

9:17 pm
40 years. and he has seen the world change global leaders come and go, including his own, serving under four saudi kings, advancing the foreign policy, especially after the attacks. 9/11. he was part of saudi arabia's effort to lessen iran's effort in the region, including the continuing conflict in syria, where saudi arabia is supporting the rebel groups. iran has been backing the government of bashar al-assad, as a foreign minister of an important political and u.s. ally, he was reported to have been well liked and respected. in diplomatic circles, and was often described as a charismatic leader. willing to talk to reporters and with a sense of humour. and with age he suffered health conditions. in the last few years, despite suffering back pain, faisal maintained his challenging role. as foreign minister he has been quoted in expressing regret that a palestinian state never took
9:18 pm

9:23 pm
>> this year people have less access to services. agencies are having to cut back on assistance. it is pushing them back to the camps, funded by the community, pushing them to return to syria. when you have families telling them they are going back, and they prefer to life in a war zone, you know how desperate they are. the u.n. refugee agencies says 80% of the syrian refugees are living below the poverty line, another 70% are sending children out to beg. many say this is a sign of how desperate people have become. the countries surrounding syria have taken in most of the refugees. of those the majority are split between turkey where 1.8 million

jordanian, u.n.i.c.e.f. officials know a lot about how to keep the camp orderly and safe. it is in fact a well run comp but more importantly full of programs that can help the 80 plus thousand residents feel valued and cared for. >> given the deaf station, could people run on mass. what would there be to return to. >> the stories i saw about rebuilding and the enthusiasm - many hope to return. obviously that is the big question. after years of war, after the devastation, syria cannot absorb outline these people back. the u.n. has been asked for
9:26 pm
$5.5 billion, only a quarter has been contributed. what do you tell one - the world is in crisis i.s.i.s. and others. who is given priority. >> what feeds groups like yises is a tense of political helplessness. the more in the thong runner toeda for extremist groups. we have learnt there is not a quick solution toies and its -- to i.s.i.s. and its fears. if we find ways of making millions of young people part of a solution rather than

it was the start of the gaza war, and, indeed, a time when hamas and israel appeared to be entering a period of calm. there is the potential for racial tensions to escalate. just last month there was ethiopian violence after a film of a soldiers being beaten was videoed. some asked if he would have been treated differently if he had been a white israeli. the mood is calm at the moment. whether it says calm depend on how this develops in the doming days. in sarajevo thousands lined the streets to pay respects to the victims of the 1995 screb ren eatsa massacre. mourners watched as coffins, containing the remains of unidentified victims passed by. the victims would be buried on

9:39 pm
the u.n. security council is charged with international peace and security and they are supposed to determine threats to peace. i i think that this move is a threat to piece and stability, without acknowledging what took place, which has been scientifically proven how can anyone expect the individuals on the ground to reconcile. >> talking about reconciliation serbia's president said it was a great day for serbia at russia's veto. how can there be reconciliation in the face of that. >> there can't be until the genocide is recognised by serbia and by republic of
