president donald trump has laid out an aggressive new strategy on iran he did not pull the u.s. of the nuclear deal struck in july twenty fifteen but he's decided not to certify iran as being in compliance with the accord wants congress to toughen u.s. policy towards iran and if it can't reach an agreement trump says he'll terminate the deal he'll also ask congress to find a way to punish iran for its ballistic missile program the current deal only covers it so you clear activities and his administration will punish some members of iran's revolutionary guard but it will not be declared a so-called terror organization really how could reports from washington d.c. . he's often threatened to tear up the landmark deal with iran but in the end u.s. president donald trump stopped short of pulling out of the two thousand and fifteen agreement to limit its nuclear program for now and even though his own administration has twice certify that iran is complying with the deal he now says
he won't do it again 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 that is why i am directing my administration to work closely with congress for months trump has accused his predecessor barack obama of being myopic in negotiations with iran focusing only on iran's nuclear program but not the financing of groups trump says are causing instability in the region the president has directed the u.s. congress to potentially revamp u.s. law to set up tough new standards. if iran by a late arbitrary trigger point lifted sanctions could be put back in place senate
republicans are already drafting legislation supported by top democrats who have always viewed the twenty fifteen deal as somewhat imperfect we're saying if they're not in compliance we're all with together on this where am the administration also has its sights on another ronnie and target the country's revolutionary guard new u.s. treasury sections are being imposed which donald trump says are long overdue critics say these actions put international relations at risk and could spell the end of the deal painstakingly negotiated over more than a decade this deal was working it was delivering the iranians were living up to it the i.a.e.a. certified eight times in iran was at hearing today a deal trump took a perfectly working deal and transformed it into a crisis with the decision that he made today donald trump has shifted u.s. iran policy and he's not entirely ruling out withdrawing from the agreement
altogether i may do that the deal is terrible but for all his tough talk against iran donald trump has for now taken little action ceding that responsibility to the u.s. congress to take the next steps or none at all kimberly helped get al-jazeera washington . well iran's reaction to charm statement was swift same as robbie has more now from tehran a swift and strong response from the uranium president hassan rouhani saying of donald trump's speech that it seemed as though the american president needed a history lesson and then he proceeded to give him one he reminded people that it was the u.s. central intelligence agency that backed a coup that toppled the democratically elected government here in one nine hundred fifty three he also reminded people of the nine hundred eighty eight shooting down a civilian airliner by an american warship he also reminded people that it was the u.s. that backed saddam hussein in iraq against iran during the one nine hundred eighty
s. iran iraq war and he said these were all examples of why iran had every right to pursue any reasonable defensive capability that it deems necessary chaumont. are you worried about it rainy a missile what about those weapons you give every day to aggressor countries i know targeting of the oppressed people of yemen with planes and bombs that you built yourself you don't have any protest about those weapons and that's aggression and you targeted all platforms you are always the aggressor in this region our weapons our missiles of defending ourselves we have always been determined and today we are more determined to defend ourselves president rouhani speech was unmistakably defiant in tone designed to match the aggressive tone and rhetoric coming out of the white house he also took an opportunity to defend the revolutionary guard a group in iran that he says enjoys a great deal of public support he also addressed trends criticism of anti-american
slogans chanted by iranian demonstrators saying that those slogans were not meant to target american people but instead those slogans were meant to target the wrong policies of the american government. they use foreign policy federica more grainy a key figure in negotiating the agreement responded immediately with their all news conference she says the u.s. can't terminate the deal this clearly is not in the hands of any president of any country in the world to terminate an agreement of this sort because this is a un security council resolution this is a plan of action that sets things to be done commitments nuclear related commitments and only nuclear related commitments and that is been implemented so the presence of united states as many powers not this one.
at least two protesters have been shot dead in kenya after more demonstrations against the electoral commission face use tear gas to disperse opposition protests in the country's three main cities the protests have been banned kenyans are due to vote in two weeks time in a rerun of all this presidential election which was a nod by the supreme court opposition leader raul adding the pulled out of the race this week he says the election board had failed to institute reforms to guarantee a free and fair vote for me the miller has more from the capital my will be small scale protests have continued in different parts of kenya and that's despite a ban on protests taking place in the central business district of the three main cities the opposition says banning these protests is unconstitutional and they want to continue demanding electoral changes from the electoral body now we understand that at least two people were killed in the bondo town in the western part of kenya
when a group of demonstrators tried to storm a police station and that's when police opened fire now the concern is that there could be excessive force by the police in these demonstrations if we look back to demonstrations in the week immediately after the august eighth elections a human rights bodies released a report saying at least thirty seven people were killed at that time and it's only in all of these cases besides two that police report indicated police used excessive force we expect to see more demonstration in the coming days as the electoral commission prepares for a rerun of the presidential of vote on the twenty sixth of october. south africa's supreme court of appeal is upheld a high court ruling to reinstate seven hundred eighty three old corruption and fraud charges against president jacob zuma
a date back to before he said office in two thousand and nine simmons says he is disappointed by the course decision and denies any wrongdoing on your page reports it took less than fifteen minutes for the supreme court of appeal to reject the president's latest attempt to avoid corruption charges. are dismissed because. the charges relate to allegations during a multi-million dollar deal from the one nine hundred ninety s. they were controversially dropped in two thousand and nine clearing the way for jacob zuma to become president the reason given by the prosecutor at the time was that secretly recorded phone conversations showed political interference last year the high court ruled the decision to drop the charges was irrational and they should be reinstated some legal experts say with the supreme court now dismissing his latest appeal the ruling must be enforced his action over the last decade smacker with this provoked him to avoid this event. these are actions of
a man who has a lot to answer so in this light leaves a gentleman i'll be writing to the national prosecuting authority that there's not a public prosecutions are. insisting that in fact jacob zuma is served with an indictment and appears in court. at the soonest the available. but the n.p.a. the national prosecuting authority sees it differently it says that because the supreme court didn't explicitly say the charges are reinstated that means it's able to reconsider the investigation that judge lewis did not instruct the m.p.'s it is one of the girls that we are greeted them are telling the people that are the court has not instructed to reinstate the charges it was just a matter that with it and pay for equal to give a shit this is an important decision because it's being interpreted differently by
the opposition democratic alliance which is doggedly pursued the president and the n.p.a. it's not as decisive as it might same ultimately there are still several options available to president zuma who has always strongly denied the allegations the national prosecuting authority says it will do the right thing and follow the law but some opposition parties say it's current here is an ally of president jacob zuma making the prosecution of a president who is facing mounting opposition seem unlikely tinier page al-jazeera bloemfontein south africa still to come on the program just two survivors from tens of thousands the freak weather that's why ted a whole generation of penguin. and the genre defying african film is breaking new ground in this year's london film festival all that and more when we come back.
