11:05 pm
prospects of the economy in the future. people have seen just what happened in the last five years. they lost about 25% of their income in the last five years so they feel really bad about it. but going forward they have the opportunity to sign this agreement, and as a consequence maybe they will lose 5% of their income more this year but the alternative which is leave the euro would mean losing 50% of their income. and their savings. and live in poverty. so people have to weigh carefully the two alternatives. either go on with the agreement lose a bit more money, or go to a new currency and face disaster. >> you teach economics. right now greeks are accepting the situation peacefully. based on what you have studied in the past and other nations do you expect things to stay that way? >> i think if there is a zeal

11:16 pm
consistently denied a genocide took place. >> translator: a factual misrepresentation and disregards the highest decisions of two international courts. it is also an insult to the victims. >> reporter: beyond the anger of course there's renewed grief as this cemetery fills up. the 20th anniversary has brought with it visits and speeches from leaders from around the world but year in and year out what the events here at potocari really means for the families of the victims is a chance to remember their victims. still there are an estimated 1200 srebrenica victims whose remains still have not been identified. they are likely to be digging fresh graves here for years to come. nadim baba, al jazeera potocari. and earlier we spoke to the former bosnian ambassador to the
11:17 pm
u.n. he said bosnia and the united states, made a secret deal, if this hadn't happened can the fall of srebrenica couldn't have happened. >> don't hide hint the u.n don't bez tray nato, don't betray a dutch ally, don't betray truth. most importantly in rwanda, how that term is used as a way to promote and in fact exploited 50 haters. and we have haters everywhere. so i would have hoped that president bill clinton would have started a new page, by offering his apology. >> he also says that while the serbian prime minister never should have been attacked today he and others make reconciliation harder by refusing to acknowledge the srebrenica massacre was a
11:18 pm
genocide. a new poll, showing donald trump in dead heat with jeb bush. today the republican presidential candidate taking his message to arizona. john hendren was there. >> reporter: for americans angry over immigration and there are a lot of them one candidate speaks clearer louder than the rest. >> mr. donald trump! >> we have to stop illegal immigration. we have to. we have to. they are killing us at the border and they are killing us in trade. they're killing us. >> reporter: for many the clarity of that message for a candidate known for his bluntness resonates. >> we have all these illegals coming and no documentation. >> reporter: donald trump handy backed down from these comments. >> they're bringing drugs they're bringing crime they're rapists. >> that might limit his candidacy and his party's
11:19 pm
efforts to gain hispanics. some of whom made their voices heard in phoenix. >> i wouldn't if the mexican government sent them over here. i think so. >> i think he's hurting them in the long run because the republican party needs to do the opposite. they need to get more hispanic vote. i would not disregard his candidacy as something not serious. >> reporter: trump has drawn so much interest, he brought the drawing to the phoenix convention center. >> he can get this owl of the hell hole that we are in. >> i would like to see what he does for our economy. >> trump is not shy about confronting his rivals.

>> it's saturday night. that means it's time to take a deeper look at the iranian nuclear negotiations. ronald reagan once saying, trust but verify. that seems to be part of the problem with iran, trust. in 1968, the npt nuclear
11:24 pm
nonproliferation treaty. it had its roots in the darkest days of world war ii. erica pitzi has more. >> a short time ago an american airplane dropped one bomb on hiroshima. and destroyed its usefulness on the enemy. >> the first time the world saw the devastation and power of nuclear weapons. >> the japanese began the war at pearl harbor. they have been repaid many-fold. with this bomb we have added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction. >> two bombs dropped by the u.s. killed more than 200,000 people. reduced two major japanese cities to ruins and left no question, world war ii was over. >> tens of thousands of american flags dotted the square. >> reporter: and a nuclear arms race was born.
11:25 pm
the soviet union and china soon followed. u.n. talks began and by 1968 the nuclear nonproliferation treaty was drawn up. >> mr. president i hand you the proclamation of the treaty for your signature. >> reporter: the treaty encourages the pursuit of peaceful nuclear energy, requires exposure of nuclear programs with the goal of global disarmament. >> this is indeed an historic occasion and as i sit here today i only hope that those of us who are fortunate enough to be present will look back one day and see that this was the first milestone on a road which led to reducing the danger of nuclear war. >> reporter: the treaty recognizes the five permanent members of the u.n. security
11:26 pm
council as nuclear powers. 185 other countries are also party to the treaty agreeing not to seek nuclear weapons. vaughn one of them. but since signing -- iran is one of them. since signing it, it has launched a program that says is peaceful and does not violate the treaty. >> iran has approached nuclear power differently. we are working under the framework of the nonproliferation treaty. >> a few countries have not signed the treaty and cannot be held to its rules. both india and pakistan are open about their weapons. and it is believed that other countries also have it. north korea has faced sanctions because of its nuclear weapons program. iran remains party to the treaty and in the spotlight. the u.s. and its allies are
11:27 pm
determined to know if the country is complying with the treaty or whether it is close to becoming a nuclear weapons state. >> there is talk from the iranian negotiators about whether or not they can abide by some of the terms that came up in lau lausanne. i will walk away from the negotiations if in fact it is a bad zeal. >> reporter: erica pitzi, al jazeera. >> lacey healy is a policy director, joining us from washington d.c. and president of the iranian american council joining us via skype. ms. healey i'll begin with you. does a treaty work provided all
11:28 pm
of the signatories bide by it? >> if a country is not abiding by the owners terms iran was one of the signers in 1968 and since has had some issues where it's -- say secret facilities, in particular, have been discovered by the iaea, the international watchdog that watches over the signatories to the npt. things that have sparked particular interest that iran has been doing suspicious activity that has led the international community that led them to believe iran was not beingfollowing the treaty, react to iran's potentially negative movements and ultimately really,
11:29 pm
that led to the sanctions that brought around the table and the negotiations we are in today. >> mr. miramadi do you take iran at its words when i says it is only pursuing the peaceful use of technology and why? >> i think iran does not have the intention to build nuclear power. and -- >> what makes you think that? >> will first iran is ready and has been ready to open up, everything that it has. so we know quite a bit about what's going on in the country. i think the u.s. administration has, back in 19 -- you know some years ago i think 2007 the u.s. national security agency, and its affiliates, decided that they wrote and reported
11:30 pm
that back in 2003, iran gave up onists intention to build -- to develop that nuclear device that supposedly they were after. so it's not me, i think the u.s. government also says that they are not as they speak in the mindset of developing a nuclear weapon but they are concerned and everybody else is, is the future. will iran stay with that mindset? will iran really remain loyal to the decision it was made back in 2003, let's say in i don't know 2020, the answer to that question is very complicated. it will depend on the security environment. >> which is why i want to introduce another piece of sound. and i'll let you talk on the back side of this. richard butler was the former
11:31 pm
ambassador and nuclear weapons inspector in iraq. the nonproliferation treaty were the only means for countries not obuild a bomb. listen. >> can anybody be prevented from acquiring them if they know how to build them? the answer is no. and that's a fact. can circumstances be established, agreement amongst nations that make it on balance far more sensible not to do this than to do it? the answer is yes. that's what we have in the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. that's why some 30 countries including my own australia who could readily make a nuclear explosive device don't do so. >> then there are the countries who have been trying. others said to be pursuing the bomb is libya and south africa during the apartheid years was said to be pursuing the bomb.
11:32 pm
are we talking about a selective treaty? >> this is true but really looking at the history of the treaty nearly 50 years when the treaty was brought open for signature there was an estimate that there would be many many many more nuclear weapons powers by this time so ultimately if you look at is. >> -- at the time nuclear glass half empty or half full? >> ultimately, we see only a few, north korea india pakistan israel, not very many in 50 years. south africa gave up its nuclear weapons, india did not build ukraine was one that chose to give away its nuclear weapons in order to gain not only the security assurances from other countries like the united states but gain nuclear weapons or nuclear energy technology which is part of the npt as well, in giving these countries access to
11:33 pm
nuclear energy technology they are able to have a more prosperous society. many countries are not going to build nuclear weapons purely based on the sheer cost of a nuclear weapons program. it's very, very expensive to build nuclear weapons it's expensive to do the research. >> which brings me to my next point. under the terms of the npt it louse a country to withdraw in three months notice. north korea in 2003 the country's blatant pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic weapons, courtney kealy has more. >> reporter: north korean state television shows pictures of massive rallies in pyongyang in support of north korea's withdrawal from the nuclear arms treaty which became effective january 11th, 2003. this news conference says the united states as our enemy and
11:34 pm
vowed to bring north america into a see sea of fire and hell. then secretary of state colin powell called that a sad statement of what north korean leaders think of their own people. >> their failure to comply with their own obligations and their failure to do what they were supposed to do under not only international agreements but the framework with the united states. we hope the north korean leadership will realize the folly of its action he will realize that the international community and the united states will not be intimidated. >> reporter: north korea had threatened for years to drop out of the nuclear nonproliferation treaty when they finally did it took less than a month to announce the reactivation of its nuclear power facilities. just two months later it had nuclear weapons. by 2006 the u.n. security council approved a resolution to
11:35 pm
impose sanctions on north korea and bring an end to its ballistic tests. north korea is still dliemg have extraordinary nuclear capabilities and the ability to miniaturize them. courtney kealy, al jazeera. >> what about regulations that are not enforced by the international community? does that mean the npt is worth no more than the paper it is printed on? >> first of all, the npt is voluntary. any time with three months notice they can walk out. and the reason they are in that treaty is because supposedly that treaty will bring give them the right without any problem to develop peaceful nuclear technology for energy and other purposes. and that in the international
11:36 pm
community will also participate in that peaceful nuclear movement. that's the only reason they are there a member because otherwise there is no reason for them to be a member and be under any obligation. the member npt has a safety agreement with the members that is quite limiting. it imposes all kinds of inspections and now they have added additional protocol that makes that inspection almost any time anywhere, kind of a situation. so if let's say a country like iran who is a member, and if that country is not going to have to receive any cooperation help on developing peaceful nuclear technology, it will have no reason to stay there. because then it would be all liability. there is no asset there. >> ms. healey north korea decides simply in 2003 that it
11:37 pm
no longer wants to be a party to the npt and decides it wants to build a bomb so ms. healey what is there to stop countries from simply walking away if that's what they want to do and what good then is the nuclear nonproliferation treaty? >> north korea's decision comes with serious consequences. not many countries are willing to deal with the extreme international isolation that north korea has chosen to deal with. this is a situation -- >> kim jong-un and his his father have been doing that for two generations. >> and the world is allowing them to do that, north korea is a special situation not so much iran where the u.s. and the rest of the international community have made the calculations that they'll be able to contain a north korean nuclear program. so they are able to contain a north korean nuclear weapon, they can allow that weapon to
11:38 pm
exist on the continent as long as there is not a major development in delivery systems that allow them to get that nuclear weapon elsewhere they'll deal with that and not launch an attack. now in the case of another country such as iran the u.s. has been very clear that they would launch an attack in response to any iranian attempt to build a nuclear weapon because the country is so much closer and so much more able to launch a nuclear weapon across the border to another u.s. ally for example. and it would pose a much greater threat for that reason. so north korea is sort of a special case. they're very isolated and able to continue to be isolated in that way in a way that it's able to with. >> ms. healey i was doing some checking, bashar al-assad born in 1965, the birth of kim
11:39 pm
jong-un, younger does the world discuss the real world ramifications as much as they used to and should we be talking about what would happen if one of these countries get a bomb? >> yes i think unfortunately maybe fortunately as well the issue has fallen off the major debate. people are much more worried about gas prices, much more worried about the things that affect them day-to-day. but things about nuclear weapons they don't see them necessarily affecting them, terrorism on the news and taken e-terrible things are happening they know terrible things are happening but not right next door. maybe it's a good thing that nuclear weapons are not in the we don't want them in the news every day but it is also important that we understand that they are a real threat and also particularly with rising threats between the u.s. and russia, two of the -- the two largest nuclear arsenals in the world that there is still
11:40 pm
a real threat there and still a possibility that could happen and we still have to be aware of it. butter there's not much we as regular people can do. >> mr. amir ahmadi i'll give you the last word. spends all of this time debating about making sure somebody doesn't get a bomb? >> first off the world has so much, so many nuclear weapons that if anybody starts using any of that, it's going to have to be so destructive because the others are going to have to immediately respond and the responses like minute. >> do you think kim jong-un even cares about what you said? >> i hope so. the countries have become extremely calculated, become very cautious and i think the good news is after world war ii no country has ever you know used a nuclear weapon.
11:41 pm
and i don't believe that anybody has, you know, a reason to do so again. we never know, countries come to a point of, you know, a point where they for the dpifnls existential point, the nuclear weapon will use it. for example israel like over 300 nuclear war heads would ever use that against the arabs or iranians or anybody. then again if it comes to a point where the jewish state's survival is at stake obviously they may think of using it. but largely they have been using it as a deterrent as opposed to offensive or deterrent system as opposed to offensive system or strategic system. so again i think -- i think the good news is that too many
11:42 pm
nuclear weapons out there have basically -- have basically you know made each other completely obsolete in a way. >> mutually assured destruction or mad. lacey healey healey, and hussein amadi, thank you for joining us. >> strategies the nigerian government is looking at to bring the girls home. straight ahead.
11:43 pm
11:44 pm
>> officials in nigeria say they prevented an attack. comes a day after boko haram killed 10 in a village.
11:45 pm
the new president is promising to rescue the over 200 girls who were kidnapped. >> these parents lived for more than a year, not knowing whether they will see their children again. the sisters are among 200 girls boko haram said they forced some to convert to islam and marry fighters. muhammadu buhari met some of the girls' parents saying he is committed to bringing the girls home. >> in his regime boko haram will come to an end sooner or later. >> he will trade some of the people even if they are killed, we will know the last story about our drawrts in general daughters from general
11:46 pm
buhari. >> some have moved here to the settlement in the outskirts of the capital abuja. his niece was kidnapped and is still missing. he says the government must help rebuild chibok. >> we need security trust the security of our life has to be assured at home. >> in office less than two months president buhari made i.t. clear that stopping boko haram is his administration's top priority. his pred predecessor was criticized for failing to stop the group. military force will begin battling boko haram by month's end. >> we want him to take decisive action and end boko haram. let the people of nigeria go back to their normal ways of life. be. >> reporter: and for parents and family members that can't happen until their girls come
11:47 pm
home. natasha guinane, al jazeera. >> michael kline is a senior analyst for drum cusack a company associated with risk assessment. mr. kline, if we talked about france or great britain would we still be having this conversation today? >> we probably wouldn't have needed the social media impetus that got the global conversation going in the first place. i think the chibok girls is a lesson in power of social media campaign. but also the fickle life cycle of social media and how attention dyed died out as the search for victims died out as well. >> boko haram now wants to exchange girls for prisoners being held. swap or not swap? >> if the negotiations are real i don't think the nigerian
11:48 pm
government would be blamed for discussing swapping the chibok victims for prisoners being held. the problem is, is that the negotiations appear dubious at best. the sources have been anonymous. they've said that the government is not negotiating so it's unclear who's negotiating on behalf of the victims. and without any hierarchy of boko haram that we know of at least, it's hard to know who's negotiating on their behalf. >> there are now concerns that female suicide bombers surfacing in the region may be the girls that talking about. there are also reports that some of those girls a lot of those girls have been married off and they have released a beheading video. how much is fact and how much is fiction? >> well, the suicide bombings have increased in the past month because boko haram is shifting to more traditional terrorist tactics as they have been routed out by the territory they held in the counterinsurgency. as they do that they shift to
11:49 pm
suicide bombings and ambushes. it is true, a lot of these suicide bombings have been young girls, a sad legacy of the chibok bombing. there is no proof these are the same girls. after all there are there have been 2,000 young women and girls that have been kidnapped in the last two years. butter there is no doubt that boarnl draws a lot of its suicide bombers from the pool of kidnappings. >> what does it say about the united states that a year after getting involved we're still having this dialogue? i said this at the time the school girld girls were kidnapped but we're not seeing any members of the senate take the senate floor and criticize the role with respect to boko haram. why is that? >> the u.s. government has had a shaky relationship with nigeria
11:50 pm
under the previous administration. typically the united states offers military assistance in the form of intelligence and military training. it was the nigerian ambassador to america who actually started to demand that they be given weapons. the united states blocked the sale of helicopters from israel to nigeria. the reason being is actually the leahy amendment that the united states can't support direct -- military directly if it's involved in human rights abuses and those claims have been waged pretty plainly against nigerias. >> is this the case that boko haram is that strong or nigeria is just that weak? >> i think key word here is strategy. boko haram has a strategy. it's been portrayed as a rag tag group of gunmen but they are very adaptable. the question is, does the government have a strategy?
11:51 pm
the colossus of the government not adaptable. they haven't been able to adapt to the asymmetric and terroristic boko haram as it shifts into sleeper mode and shifts its way around the country. >> michael kline drum cusack, the firm specializes in risk assessment. thank you for joining us. thank you for having me. >> fidel castro make public appearances again. making public appearances again.
