2:00 am
chaos there's no bigger danger than a world order that has lost mercy conscience truth and hope and that is the danger that we're facing now let's check in with hashem now borrow for a bit of analysis on this he started quite big picture hashem talking about his idea of chaos and a lack of mercy in the world and then focused more on turkish issues that mean syria and really a call for help i think he said we expect more support. indeed come a lot of play of basically said that his country has to bear the burden of the influx of more than three and a half a million syrian refugees into the country and that the country of turkey has been looking after those refugees provided to them with the basic services and that despite reassurances from the international community the e.u. and the u.n. in particular to provide significant assistance to those refugees nothing has
2:01 am
emerged apart from few financial assistance the biggest concern for the turkish government is therefore the way out of the crisis in syria as a paper doll and said that his country was instrumental in the so she i agree him and with the russians to prevent a bloody confrontation in months he was hoping to see if that translates into a comprehensive political settlement but you know aren't talking to me is why it's concerned about what could happen in the future if the russians and the syrians decide to go ahead and move towards it which is the last bastion for the rebels in syria. hashim with regards to the middle east what's coming up on this day at the united nations i'm looking at my list here i'm seeing carter and iran what to expect there. interesting statements to come forward particularly from the iranian president hassan rouhani we're
2:02 am
expecting his speech to be a part of the conciliatory part at least wrong and now he's been emboldened by the push by the europeans the russians or the chinese to create this payment mechanism whereby companies contractors with iran could bypass sanctions imposed by the. trump administrator and he's definitely going to reiterate the position of his country which is basically that the two thousand and fifteen agreement with the international community remains the only platform for any. future negotiation in the near future but at the same time we'll definitely hear some strong words from has a little handy warning the international community the americans in particular that further sanctions attempts to isolate iran are definitely going to backfire and create more conflicts more instability worldwide as far as this speech over the emir of qatar shift i mean how many. it's a crucial moment for the emir of qatar this is going to be his second speech the
2:03 am
united nations general assembly are the two thousand and seventeen g.c.c. quizes it will definitely come out saying that his country has emerged stronger supplying deals building strong bridges with the international community with the americans in particular but at the same time i think he's definitely going to say that while his country remains committed to dialogue about with sandy arabia the united arab emirates but how they and each of the countries that have been imposing a blockade on qatar here remains determined in the fact that any discussion in the near future should never tackle issues of national sovereignty that remains a red line for qatar ok hashim we'll talk to you again later on once we hear those speeches from iran and qatar at the u.n. . one thing with the studio itself and bought a car here is the director of the center for conflict and humanitarian studies at the doha institute so i would usually ask you right now
2:04 am
a question where i think we should go but you've got four pages of notes there and i want you to tell me out of what we've heard so far of micron what's jumped out for you the most wanted of what micron had to say i i thought his line was very much similar to what you said last year but he went more into the details this year conceptually but yeah boy did to contextualize it in certain countries and certain conflicts around the world so i was saying the bigger picture what he'd like to see the world order looking like without any picking on particular examples. what i thought was very interesting his reference to the international financial crisis ten years ago that we have handled it but we've only taken emergency measures and we failed to address the root causes of the crisis so he picked on issues of inequalities low g.d.p. around the world the fact that there hasn't been really major root cannot make reforms to try and support people in times of crisis in terms of.
2:05 am
french international aid i thought again contrasting with what trump said was a very important point that he pushed his contribution by forty percent but the temps in the same time of this year i think it's been particularly interesting here in the second sentence said fifty percent of that will be. targeting inequalities against women so he's very focused on on development as far as as half of the world population is concerned women and girls he did highlight very quickly and very firmly for the basic needs an education health and the importance that plays in development with all due respect to the french president and i'm not talking so specifically about those initiatives but generally speech i wondered if he sounded a bit more idealistic then realistic. exactly this is why world order is. where do you even start with that well he wasn't proposing
2:06 am
a totally new order he's proposing respecting the existing order but on the basis of rules that are known and fair and that can rules that can be respected and i respected in reality now he put in his for example on the international humanitarian law and the fact that france will continue to support that will continue to provide you return assistance but you know avoided mentioning the real crises around the world yemen to start with and syria no reference whatsoever to these two and i thought it kind of contradict with his own principle that international terror law is important france is going to undertake steps to ensure a humanitarian access but we have these two major crises that are suffering at the moment and. i thought was interesting also his. reference to migration the t. acknowledged that people's mobility is a factor and closing our doors is not the solution but we have to work together to make sure and using his words he talked about the choice international mobility or
2:07 am
selected international mobility has got to be allowed in order to spread the benefit of development. with respect to well so many micro on who did we have before that time the one from turkey. do we risk looking at all of these speakers in comparison to donald trump just just so you know i know trump was one of the first speakers and he's one of the most anticipated speeches and yes he's the president of the united states but i just worry sometimes that we're all are well this is what they said compared to trump compared to trump. yes i'm not for the fact that the u.s. traditionally goes second always has had an effect on everybody else coming to speak behind them but last year in this year it's the style the trump addresses people that really left most impression and in one or two cases almost made it a must that they should respond to his points i thought this year he was more
2:08 am
moderate last year i was really didn't threaten anyone he didn't register anyone and he wasn't quite interested in reading from his notes i thought it was really somebody else's notes but very subdued yes yes as a sort of you know moving on slowly quietly through the points which wasn't what he did last he was much more fiery gauging he was really saying what he thought on every single point. but it's inevitable that people will contrast their position in relation to to what he has has to say on or do. i thought there were a lot of interesting concept or idea is put forward and to be fair to turkey since two thousand and twelve they have created their own mood in terms of international aid and support overseas and in particular particularly in somalia somalia benefit a great deal from turkish assistance and they've done it in a way that differed from the traditional western mood of development and if you
2:09 am
speak to somalis i think the majority would those who benefited would. clearly be able to capture illustrate the output of the turkish assistance in somalia ok thank you again more speeches the come we're waiting for the leaders of jordan and qatar and iran so again we'll talk to you later on. for now we will move on to some other news the european union has made it clear it wants to keep doing business with iran despite the u.s. ripping up its nuclear deal the e.u. says it is working on a way for its countries to continue trading with iran as we have for townsend reports from new york. the e.u. was reported to have been discussing what it calls a special purpose vehicle for several weeks and monday night the e.u. foreign policy chief said it would be going ahead e.u. member states will set up a legal entity to facilitate legit to make financial transactions with iran and this will allow european companies to continue to trade with it on in accordance
2:10 am
with european union low and could be open to other partners in the what the plans discussed in the past have involved an entity being set up to act as a go between or clearing house which wean iran and other nations to facilitate commercial transactions for example if a country or company wants to buy iranian oil it would send money to or perhaps engage in a barter system involving this entity which will handle the transaction with iran the same were true in reverse for iran's dealings with the rest of the world the idea is to bypass commercial and central banks who are fearful of being frozen out of the us financial system if they help circumvent the new sanctions being imposed by the trumpet ministration against iran in the vendor. however the details have yet to be worked out and there is some skepticism that the system will work especially given the large number of european companies already curtailing their business dealings with iran. those meeting at the u.n. also announced that around remained in compliance with the nuclear deal pledge
2:11 am
their commitment to remain participants the meeting on the sidelines of the un general assembly didn't just involve european foreign ministers but the foreign ministers of russia and china as well meeting with iran coming as it did on the eve before donald trump addresses the u.n. general assembly in what's been billed as an attempt to really blast iran for its activity this was a sign of real international solidarity here in new york she ever see al-jazeera new york now the saudi amorality coalition fighting in yemen plans to open humanitarian corridors to allow the delivery of aid it says it will work with the u.n. on the car door that would run between the rebel strongholds of her day there on the red sea and the capital. quite a bit shocked at how the coalition is working with the u.n. humanitarian agency in yemen to establish safe humanitarian corridors to help with the delivery and aid between today deaths on. britain's main opposition has voted
2:12 am

some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone in some place would i know is that i've never sexually assaulted anyone kavanaugh was seventeen when his original accuser christine bloody forward says he tried to rape her cavanaugh and ford are scheduled to break their silence at a senate hearing on thursday but the white house considered that too late president trump is standing behind his nominee for the united states highest court since a fine man and we certainly hope he's going to be confirmed as quickly republican leaders in congress aren't backing down either this is what the so-called resistance has become. a smear campaign pure and simple democrats would let a few and conveyed a thing like a complete lack of evidence or accusers requests for confidentiality to get between them and a good smear. it's despicable. on

2:21 am
recently learn how to handle him madam president met mr secretary-general your excellency's thank you it is an honor to take part of this wonderful assembly once again the united nations was born in the ashes of the second world war out of a deep desire to protect new generations from suffering destruction and want today these hopes still face challenges peace and stability have met threats in every region. too many people remain excluded from the promise of prosperity and global cero continues to target all nations here
2:22 am
in this chamber. i've called it a third world war my friends these challenges do not make collective action and mutual respect less important if anything they make our partnership even more important because what is the alternative a world without the peace and accord we need to work together to trade together expand opportunity to gether a world where crises are not resolved but magnified by and spreads more refugees flee because we cannot work together to help people stay safe and thrive we have a long way to go to deliver a global opportunity and hope but we cannot simply give up because the tosk is hard
2:23 am
all i countries benefit when we unite in common cause and i am compelled to talk about this today because of the critical role of collective action in ending the serious crises in my region and especially the key crisis along with denial of a palestinian state every un resolution since the beginning of this crisis every resolution whether from the general assembly or the security council recognizes the equal rights of the palestinian people to a future of peace dignity and hope this is the heart of the two state settlement the only path to a comprehensive last in peace only a two state solution based on international law and relevant un resolutions can meet the needs of both sides an end to the conflict
2:24 am
a viable into betted sovereign palestinian state. on the one nine hundred sixty seven borders with east jerusalem as its capital and a secure israel fully part of its own region recognized by arab and muslim states around the world arab and muslim countries are committed to a comprehensive peace and the arab peace initiative has been on offer for more than sixteen years indeed every major country in the world the u.s. and the european union all have worked to help the parties reach a general peace that can last the u.s. administration has long been committed to peace and has a leading role in our progress going forward yes we have a long way to go but we cannot give up because the tosk is hard.
2:25 am
because what is the alternative can we afford to let one of the world's most to teach it regions be tied to an endless cycle of violence in its midst. how long must jerusalem a holy city to more than half of the world's people face dangers to its multi-faith heritage and identity. how could we accept a status quo of continuing crises and bigotry palestinians families displaced for generations their children's very identity tonight israeli families living in continuing national self isolation without the security of peaceful relationships worldwide and what could possibly be the future of what some propose a single binational state whose very foundation is
2:26 am
a rejection of the equality of its own people that's the ugly undemocratic reality of the one state idea. it is by no means an alternative to a two state peace settlement it is an abandonment of peace or new way to go a will from the work of reconciliation and the opposite of what both sides need and have sought for so long. my friends there is no such thing as a unilateral agreement it takes at least two parties to make an agreement helping the parties achieve that agreement and work together to build a new future deserves a strong steady support of all our world. all countries need to pull together to get this peace process back on track and that means rejecting
2:27 am
actions that jeopardize negotiations whether by illegal encroachments land confiscations all threats to the welfare of innocents especially children we need to support full funding for unruh up and other vital efforts to protect families keep communities stable and prepare young people for productive lives and it would be a terrible mistake to abandon used to the forces of radicalization and despair such support is urged the need to ensure fills its role in accord with its un mandate and above all we need to safeguard their heritage and peace of jerusalem. a holy city to billions of people around the world and the hashemite christo to ship of islamic and christian holy sites in jerusalem is
2:28 am
a duty of the jordan is proud to carry and we will counter any attempts to change the holy cities historic arab christian and muslim identity but jerusalem's future is not jordan's concern alone. it is yours. there are global implications when religious worship is threatened and international law is undermined. by france collective action is also vital when it comes to resolving other conflicts and crises that threaten our world jordan will continue to support all multilateral efforts to help syria cheve a political solution based on the geneva process and un security council resolution two two five four to safeguard the country's unity sovereignty and territorial integrity and create the conditions for stability and rebuilding.
2:29 am
an effective global response to terror also requires continued collective action let's be clear about it for all our victories the fight against these outlaws the whole adage of islam is not over winning the war dumond's a long term holistic approach one that has security measures with strong initiatives that support inclusion and hope offline and online we must counter all and i say all ideologies of hatred including islamophobia and jordanians have led efforts to unite the world in mutual respect and understanding and finally we must also strengthen our collective response to the global refugee crisis now as many of you know jordan has carried a massive disproportionate burden as
2:30 am
a refugee host our people have opened their homes schools public services hospitals we shared our country scarce resources off food and energy our precious water. the crisis has held back economic growth and job creation jobs urgently needed by our young people more than sixty percent of our population jordanians have borne this refugee burden in full accord with our country's long humanitarian traditions but we know and the world knows that this crisis is a global responsibility the sacrifices we and all the host countries make every day can only continue if donor nations hold up their side of a partnership and that means continued multi-track efforts in development support
2:31 am
and humanitarian assistance efforts which not only prepare refugees to return home and rebuild their countries but also give hope to the people of host countries those who have sacrificed so much. my friends the world cannot address the refugee crisis or any global crisis unless we work together to support those who are doing the right thing for the future we all share peace and prosperity demond constant collective action the alternative is to fail our history and fail off future so let us choose instead to succeed to give the world's people especially young people confidence in global justice hope for new opportunity and international laws and agreements and institutions that everyone can rely on. thank you very much. thank you. so much
2:32 am
shorter address there from king abdullah of jordan i must apologize i introduce to miss king hussein of jordan king hussein of course with his father king abdullah the second is he devoted the bulk of his speech to the issue of the peace process in the middle east he said that one state called one state solution would be an abandonment of peace and that our countries need to pull together to get this peace process back on track spoke at length about jerusalem saying jerusalem's future wasn't just a concern of jordan or the israelis or the palestinians in fact it should be everyone's concern because of the many religions that call jerusalem home and also tellingly spoke of the need to fully support the funding for the u.n. relief works agency for palestinians which of course has been defunded by the united states so that was king abdullah of jordan the next speaker is been hammered
2:33 am
me there near of carter expecting to hear him talk about the blockade on carter this as i correspond it was telling us a little bit earlier the second speech he will give to the united nations general assembly since carter was blockaded by saudi arabia the u.a.e. and qatar. so in the name of god the merciful the compassionate your excellent see president of the general assembly your excellent see secretary-general ladies and gentlemen at the outset i would like to congratulate miss murray yes spinoza garces for assuming the presidency of the general assembly and its seventy third session and we wish her all success i would also like to express our gratitude and appreciation to mr miller's lovelight check for his leadership during the previous
2:34 am

2:35 am
a comprehensive solutions according to international law and international resume lucian's you. while rejecting double standards and rejecting the rule of force. it is very important to have an international reference manifested in a legitimate order that respects the rule of law. we must. expedite the reform process of the united nations so that the organization is able to fulfill its role and fulfill the aims of the organization and to respond to the striations of all of their peoples this would allow us to achieve. lasting peace and sustainable society. and this is the seam of this session ladies and gentlemen for after one year of the indigo blockade imposed on
2:36 am
the state of qatar many facts were revealed about a prearranged campaign of incitement against it. besides the insinuation and fabrications used to create this crisis. in the meantime the international community recognized the falseness of the allegations that have been propagated against my country to justify their premeditated measures taken under the pretext of these invented and untrue allegations. and if they grant a violation of the international law and the bases of relations between nations and the values and norms of our peoples. despite all the measures taken to inflict harm on qatar's security and stability and create hardships for its people and addition to the economic warfare launched to hinder its development process. there is a period that followed the unjust siege has witnessed the strengthening of the
2:37 am
status of the state of qatar and the consolidation of its role as an active partner in the a regional and international arenas and the qataris economy. continued its grows as proof of its vigor and consistency the state of qatar has always maintained has also maintained its advanced and leading rankings these are the countries of the region and global indicators especially in the areas of human security and human development. this has strengthened the qatari people's face and their potential values and principles and comes to cement its cohesion and their unity of their unity. believing in the soundness of our legal position and in the necessity of peaceful settlement of disputes and in dialogue as the best way to resolve crises we have been and still are positively responsive to all the appreciated efforts of brotherly and friendly nations to end this crisis is through an unconditional
2:38 am
dialogue based on mutual respect for the sovereignty of nations and factory it is not reasonable that differences in views about how things some regional issues lead to paralyzing the effectiveness of an important regional organization such as the gulf cooperation council. the blockade on qatar has harmed their petition of the g.c.c. countries and the paralysis of the council has your flecked to negatively on the council's us player drawl towards regional and global issues we hope that we will all transform the council's current plight into an opportunity for reforming it and putting forward binding mechanisms to resolve the differences among its states through intra dialogue interest a dialogue to avoid any similar occurrence in the future and it is not sensible for our arab british legion tremaine hostage to some marginal differences which are fabricated in our case and which consume the fruits and energies and ways funds
2:39 am
exceeding what we need to allocate to the just causes that are supported that are supposed to be agreed upon by us. madam president. only this what progress has been made on the lingering issues of the middle east especially the palestinian cause which is the last vestiges of a colonial past in our world. the political process which began twenty. five years ago presented an example of a departure from the united nations' terms of reference to frameworks outside the united nations some had finished perceived as the best and fastest way and settling and finding solutions to it supported by the arab states in line with respecting the palestinian decision. but that has resulted in further stalemate and complexity now we are witnessing attempts to. liquidate the palestinian cause through that equation of issues relating to the permanent solution such as jerusalem refugees
2:40 am
sovereignty and borders. you know just national issues counts be resolved by being subjected to the balance of power between the occupier and the occupied. of but can only be solved in accordance with principles such as the right of self-determination and inadmissibility of annexation of territories of others by force which have become part of the international legitimacy in the territory deterioration of the situations of the palestinian territories particularly the inhumane conditions in the gaza strip the suffocating siege at real zonder and the continued destruction of settlements in the occupied jerusalem and the west bank pretend grieve consequences and with a historic responsibility on the security council we reaffirm the importance of negotiations and the resumption of their tracks but that will require commitment until there is a new shuns of international the due to mysie firm and foremost among which is the
2:41 am
two state solution and the arab peace initiative on the basis of east jerusalem as the capital of the palestinian state of the nine hundred sixty seven borders moreover there can be no solution to the arab israeli conflict without a just and lasting solution to the palestinian cause which. we abided by this position which is consistent with international legitimacy and dictated on us by the human conscience but israel rejects this job. settlements the state of qatar will spare no effort to provide the various forms of material and political support to the brotherly but it's to go and to continue to work with all the international actors in the middle east peace process to clear the difficulties that obstruct the resumption of the peace negotiations in accordance with the terms of reference and resolutions of international legitimacy. madam president.
2:42 am
seven years have gone under it and international community is still on a bill to find a solution to the exacerbating syrian crisis was all its aspects and dangerous consequences in addition to the charter g.'s experienced by the syrian people there worried and frustrated that the crimes of genocide mass displacement and wholesale deaths in prisons under torture could become a common practice that the international community can get accustomed to. feel here to deter the syrian regime from committing crimes charges through the war waged against its people on the one tand and not to be held accountable after committing them on the other hand with drones or the provisions of international law and human rights law devoid of any meaning this would have serious consequences on the prevailing values in our world by raising the existing ceiling for using violence to suppress the aspirations of peoples and trampling on the rights of
2:43 am
citizens and people in our region. we are facing a humanitarian moral and legal catastrophe that's obligates the international community to speed dark reaching a political solution that stems syrians bloodshed. fulfills the aspirations of syrian people for justice and freedom maintains syria's unity and sovereignty and achieves security and stability in syria and in the region in accordance with the geneva one communique and the relevant security council resolutions we emphasize the necessity to abide by the international humanitarian law to protect civilians. regarding of the yemeni issue we confirm the firm position of the state of qatar which is committed to the unity independence and territorial integrity of yemen we called upon all the yemeni parties to a national reconciliation to end the conflict on the basis of security council resolution twenty two sixteen the gulf cooperation council initiative and the outcomes of the national dialogue from this platform i appeal to active states in
