nuclear weapons against innocent people is the united states the 25th of us essentially transactional iran curbs nuclear activity so it can sell oil and generate revenues that process stopped working when the us restarted sanctions and now it's playing out on the open seas earlier this week the british royal marines seized an iranian oil tanker off the coast of japan to herat has called it an act of piracy that undercuts london's commitment to the nuclear deal and a breach of the j.c. . and on wednesday u.s. officials once again put out a call for countries willing to form a military coalition to patrol shipping lanes off the coast of iran and yemen a move that could make things even worse the potential for things going on without . getting an agreement. is very difficult as well every nation which. meant regardless. agreement went to read french president emanuel necron has said
3:01 am
it is time again for dialogue american sanctions didn't bring iran back to the negotiating table as u.s. president donald trump might have liked in fact iran now says it will not stop producing cooperation with the j.c.b. a way for anything short of a lifting of banking and all sanctions but the british this week seized an iranian oil tanker in international waters because america asked them to and the united states is now calling on other militaries to help patrol middle eastern waters to protect shipping lanes from what they say is an iranian threat all things considered any hope france might have head of a negotiated solution to any of this might be overly optimistic. while an emergency meeting of the international atomic energy agency has just wrapped up in vienna john holl is monitoring that for us live in vienna and the iranian voice certainly one who's given a press conference in the last couple of hours what did he have to say about the situation. well i think probably the top
3:02 am
line coming out of this meeting at the i.a.e.a. in vienna is that iran is not planning to take any immediate further steps away from the nuclear deal the envoy haasan body did say however that another period now of 60 days begins at the end of which iran will be prepared to take further action in response if the parties to the deal particularly the europeans the british the french and the germans don't meet their commitments to iran to protect in protecting its economic interests and adding that so far that further action has not been decided upon by teheran he did tell the media afterwards that he had said to the meeting that once again iran is enriching uranium as its right under the nonproliferation treaty for peaceful purposes only that it has never sought to acquire or create a weapon of mass destruction he pointed out that simply repeating over and over and
3:03 am
over the same accusations as the u.s. of course is doing in iran does not make magically authenticate them and he said that the u.s. was the ultimate aggressor both in the region and in the deal itself bringing it to the situation it's in now pointing out that it was a sad irony and a paradox in the iranians view that the united states was calling on iran to comply with the deal that it has already left so iran in this meeting very much standing its ground and no real consensus among the other international players so what really did the u.s. achieve by calling the meeting in the 1st place. i mean unless the u.s. has got some strategy at play that isn't immediately apparent it looks like it didn't achieve really very much the meeting wrapped up with no firm conclusion the board of directors of the i.a.e.a. calling on all the parties to the deal to meet their commitments essentially saying
3:04 am
go away and sort this out under the terms of the deal itself this is not the appropriate forum for it if the u.s. is looking for a unity of international purpose all it found in the room was division the same divisions that exist within the deal itself you've got united states repeatedly accusing and threatening tehran you've got the european powers britain france and germany. trading a very fine middle ground on the one hand expressing their concern on the other hand trying to keep the deal alive. and keep some room for maneuver and on the other hand the further and russia and china also signatories to the deal russia laying all of this at the feet of washington so pressure very much still on iran no firm conclusion here the u.s. presumably would have gone away empty handed. that's funny well still to come on this news including the momentum behind months of pro-democracy protests in hong kong shows no signs of slowing. we're in

aftermath of sudan's military crackdown on protesters during a peaceful sit in in khartoum more than 100 people were killed by sudan's military giunta on june 3rd. much of the violence was recorded on cell phone videos internet services were cut shortly after on the orders of sudan's transitional military council. lawyer adela seem hazan filed a lawsuit requesting the internet be restored the court agreed services were brought back 1st to fix landlines on tuesday the ruling was extended to mobile phones he along with several human rights groups believe the shutdown was an attempt to hide evidence of crimes committed against civilians what. the argument was that interrupting internet services would protect the general public but in fact it was the opposite it was for the protection of private aid to taste and pull people that have committed crimes. social media platforms like facebook and twitter

were widely used to organize protests that ultimately toppled longtime leader omar al bashir in april once the military took control for weeks protesters took to the streets demanding the formation of a civilian led government. since the military crackdown trust between the military and civilians has been damaged but that last week progress was made generals and protesters agree to form a joint civilian military ruling body together they plan to install a new government for a transitional period of 3 years oh despite recent violence many civilians say they will keep pushing for change but these pictures that can now be shared on mobile phones prove the path forward could be challenging katia llopis with a gun al-jazeera. france's military has admitted that antitank missiles found
3:08 am
during a raid in libya belonged to the french army the us made javelin missiles were recovered from the libyan warlord holy for half tells based on the outskirts of tripoli france's military says the missiles were originally intended to protect french antiterrorism forces in libya and did not violate an arms embargo france has previously supported hafter natasha butler has more from paris a of p. and where it is news agencies say that they have received a statement from the french defense ministry and in this statement the french defense ministry says these missiles are indeed french they are u.s. made javelin missiles that the french gave to their forces operating in libya now that's interesting in itself because france has always been very vague about its presence in libya now the french defense ministry statement also says that these missiles were in fact defective they were supposed to be destroyed what the
3:09 am
statement doesn't say though is how on earth these missiles ended up in the hands of forces who are loyal to khalifa haftar i mean that's the big question and potentially a very embarrassing one for the french government because the french government have always said that they are not supplying any weapons or to libya that would be in breach of a u.n. arms embargo and over the years campaign is and critics have accused france of supporting. in the sense that france perhaps feels after is someone that they can partner with in the fight against fighters in the region but france has always denied that they have denied that support and said that they backed publicly the u.n. peace process. the republican chairman of the u.s. senate foreign relations committee has introduced a bill seeking to hold saudi arabia accountable for human rights abuses it also criticizes crown prince mohammed bin sal monk but does not go as far as stopping
3:10 am
weapon sales to the kingdom unofficial joins us live now from washington d.c. alan we know those weapon sales are worth billions of dollars to the u.s. surely there's no way they could be blogs. the senate foreign relations committee was looking into this sale that was approved by the secretary of state might pompei go back in may he declared an emergency in the middle east and that allowed the u.s. administration to push through $8000000000.00 of arms sales to saudi arabia and also to the united arab emirates but by doing that he sidestepped congress no normally congress has 30 days to approve foreign arms sales by taking this step that took them completely out of the equation what we found out during the hearing that was 40 these or so after the declaration of the emergency those weapons still haven't been delivered which led many senators to question if there really was an emergency and it wasn't just democrats republicans are annoyed too but ted cruz he's
3:11 am
a republican from texas he said the substance of the seal selling weapons to saudi arabia and the united arab emirates allies of the united states in the middle east he didn't have a problem with that but he did have some very strong words for the way this was handled by the state department and the administration. on the process that the state department followed for these weapons not to put too fine a point on it was crap under the law under the arms export control act the administration needs congressional approval and has a 30 day notification period the department had 30 days to take it to congress and follow the law and it was foolish not to. democrat tim kaine raised the question of why there was such haste to push this arms sales through saying is that the relationship between donald trump his son in
3:12 am
law and senior advisor and the saudis should be investigated chris murphy he's a democrat from connecticut he was suggesting that there was a problem that in the past the united states was able to talk about arms sales and where they were going and make sure that they were used for human rights abuses or for targeting civilians and he said no that seems to have been lost simply because donald trump the state department a very keen on pushing through weapons sales and that comes at a cost he said to the united states. it looks to us these days as if the united states is the junior partner in this relationship do you know or do you not know whether civilian casualties have increased due to coalition air strikes i would say in a general sense here that there is a delta in information on what is attributed to a coalition ascribed casualty and what may be ascribed to either hooty or one
