the 19 sixty's was a period of change around the world, including the middle east and north africa. we dreamed of a fair and democratic society which we and of a revolution. the 1st of a 3 part series out as they were world explores the regional events. people and forces that shake the decade hammer, our dreams were many, we started with great dreams, but ended up with sat, sat by the 60s in the arab world. politics on al jazeera ah, holding the powerful to account. as we examined the u. s. his role in the world on al jazeera. ah yes. how speak? nancy pelosi wraps up her controversial visit to taiwan. ah,
i'm sammy say, dan, this is al jazeera alive from dell hall. so coming up, china reacts with angus sang, it will conduct targeted military actions around taiwan talks to revive the 2015 iran nuclear deal set to resume in vienna. ukraine's 1st grain shipments since the start of the war against russia has passed its inspection of turkey. and is sailing on woods ah you as how speak and nancy pelosi is ended, a controversial visit to taiwan. and america's 3rd most powerful politician was there for less than a day. stress in washington support for the self rule territory. china strongly warned against the trip. it's now begun military maneuvers around the island. i'm
a jam june reports for us. how speaker nancy pelosi, a high profile trip to taiwan, fraught with both complications and contradictions. america's 3rd most powerful politician, repeating washington's commitment to protect democracy on the self governed island, while also respecting beijing so called one china policy. to day the world say says the choice between democracy and autocracy, america's determination to preserve democracy here in taiwan and around the world, we may iron clad, taiwanese president, sy, in when, who gave pelosi, one of the highest civilian honors, promised to defend the island from beijing's threats into hellen, aggression against democratic taiwan would have a tremendous impact on the security of the entire in the pacific. the in facing deliberately heightened to military threats. ta one will not back down. we will
throw me up, hold on nation sovereignty, and continue to hold the line of defense for democracy. china, which considers taiwan a part of its territory, has said it once a peaceful reunification and views, policies visit has a direct provocation repair under ty, one sighing wayne and her ilk, according to the us and turning their backs on national justice. these behaviors that go against the trend of times will not change the international consensus of one china and will not change the historic trend that tie one will inevitably return to the motherland. those who play with fire will not come to a good end, and those who offend china will be punished. even during policies visit china's reaction was fast and furious. suspending imports and exports of several goods to and from taiwan, conducting joint air and sea live ammunition drills near taiwan. and summoning the u. s. ambassador in beijing,
policies trip has come to an end. but with chinese american relations at such a low point, it's not clear yet what the long term repercussions of this visit will be. ma'am adam john as it on the vehicle, paula is the international editor of taiwan. plus. she says the taiwanese are concerned about chinese, new economic restrictions and military activities to people if i want are used to trying to aggressive language and posturing. but what is concerning them at the moment is one those economic actions that the china has taken against taiwan batting at number products, particularly agriculture or, and food products. although a, china was quite careful not to buy the products the china does actually need. the 2 sides have very robust trade with china being i want the largest trading partner. but the same time china needs tie wants for supply chains for electronic goods and
semiconductors. so there are businesses or smaller businesses you're that which will be affected. on the other hand, there is also the specter of china imposing its military mike on taiwan and china has made that very clear by releasing a map of its plans of these large scale drills that it's planning to do from august 4th, to the 7th. then this map shows these live fire drills that are due to take place that even fly by possibly this i want their space, which is unprecedented. that will be taking place during those day said that map is also shown that china drill to come very close and impede on time one toil water is coming close to tie one soil, just about 16 kilometers the way. so people here and i want to watching is very closely and trying to make a sense of nancy pelosi. this is on the one hand, it's given time legitimacy. and one people have seen that that support from the us
. but on the other hand, while it's huge on symbolism, they also feel that perhaps there could have been more substance to it. top southeast asian diplomats are meeting in cambodia for the ziann summit. security concerns the top of the agenda. those include the crisis in me and more intentions over taiwan. fallen slower reports from non pen asean foreign ministers. i am pin on pen hoping to find solutions to deal with the crisis. indiana cambodian prime minister, who had sent in his opening remarks admitted the situation and military run myanmar can even be said to have deteriorated after last one's execution of 4 antique who activists mancha night. linda thought not the least. there are in the world prisoners who will be executed, then we will reconsider our rolls. the grid fight points, consensus upper sheehan. the arden let peace plan was agreed in april last year.
but since then, that's been little progress. myanmar, once again is absent from the meeting after ours in members bought its military appointed foreign minister from attending, extending the invite to a non political representative. instead. some diplomats have admitted myanmar absence at the regional meeting. may make it more difficult to find a solution. there's also pressure from civil rights groups and some members of parliament in as in countries for the organization to do more to resolve the situation in myanmar many have suggested it's time for us in to engage with the national unity government. a shadow civilian government made up of those who opposed the comb. myanmar will not be the only item on the agenda in finance pen. in the next few days in top, diplomats from the us, russia, china, and other countries will also be here for minister meetings with their asi and colleagues. as in has to deal with challenges of different types and level
but never before. never like this year. never like this moment how we been confronted. at the same time were so many perils for the region and the world at large rushes invasion of ukraine. tensions in the taiwan strait, the competition between the us and china. these are all matters that will occupy the delegates in the next few days. when florence lee al jazeera, cannot pen bother them. russian foreign minister, so gay lover of his paid an official visit to me in my head of his tripped on non pan to join the age yan summits. moscow is a supporter of me and mars military government lever of hell talks with the military johnson to discuss security and economic issues. tony chang as more from bangkok on laptops, visit sir g. a lover of russia's foreign minister arrived in me amongst capital navy door on wednesday for talks with his counterpart. and he asserted that the
relationship between mamma and russia was strong. there's a relationship that has got stronger since last year's military coup, which has seen high level delegations passing between mamma and russia, including the defense minister, being violated to men, laws forces day as the guest of honor. mamma has also seen in russia a seller of arms and weapons, including high powered jets, which it's using to fight against insurgents and rebels that oppose its rule. not only in the board areas, but also in central men. but it's a difficult time for me and my foreign me to ministers. shem asha and have been meeting in the cambodian capital non pen the shoot statements suggesting the rejection of their 5 point piece plan to try and bring and mom back into the fold with the execution of 4 political prisons
a couple of weeks ago is unacceptable. mr. leverett will be visiting for non pan later in the week, may be in the rather strange position of carrying a message from your mas generals to their neighbors. now talks to revive the 2015 iraq nuclear agreement and said to resume in vienna on thursday, you go, shake hands began last year to restore the agreement under which to her on curb its nuclear program. in exchange for the sanctions relief, the us special envoy, robert malley is on his way to the austrian capital to her on and washington had been holding in direct negotiations until now. i'll just here as of dollars shot me has more from vienna this round. oh, so cold discussions that too suddenly i, you know, that every and no one actually knew this was coming. it was such a short notice for all parties. but deb, this is actually based on what the policy chief of the european union has a stated on the 20th of july when he wrote an op ed in the financial time saying
that this is the only chance and the last chance to actually revive this deal. on the a, his, his deputy who actually leads there. these are discussions and these negotiations and re, kimura is already in vienna and all the parties are also on route to vienna. the meeting would be a mostly a discussion on this text. the text that is been labeled as 20 july texts and they seem to be some kind of agreement or understanding from all parties on this next and not really much is known on what exactly the weapons as being the mediators for this. um, i, you know, this a deal that was established in 2015 has in, but that the only fact we know for now is that a, all the parties are coming to town to vienna here. and that they seems to be a possibility that the opinion and sees the last chance to revive this deal, especially that there is no actually much left of the a, the period that was established for this deal. it was supposed to end up in about 2
years from now, but the way the robbins have seen it is that there's been so much exhaustion from all parties and that everyone needs to see a result of the year. the, the iranians need to see sanctions imposed by the u. s. leora, you know, been lifted to see actually benefits of this deal. and at the same time, the other side, the united states needs to see an implementation of regarding the nuclear program by the iranians. cilla had an al jazeera ah, indonesia and the united states flanks, their military muscles, with joint training exercises, voters in the usa, the kansas rejected chains that would have made it more difficult to get abortion. ah, the journey has begun. the fee for world camp is on its way to catherine book. your

some larvae storms. they're still into the philippines, some wet weather. they're pushing into malaysia, eating out of west bornea, over to watch smarter. still some very heavy showers continue cause southern parts of india. red one is remain in force here, though showers will not a little further north, which over the next couple of days into connecticut, wanted to share with the northern plains and with northern areas of pakistan. i saw air with issue airlines of the journey. they watch us, they gather evidence with so can we and american cyber activists develops and tap used in brazil to monitor the police. we have more cameras than they do because where the people, a bigger brother rebel peaks on a just 0. lou.
ah, and watching al jazeera, remind them now about top stories. us how speak a nancy pelosi is left taiwan after a visit denounced spine china, she repeated washington's commitment to protect democracy on the self governing island. changing consider as part of its territory. china has conducted live fine military drills. meanwhile, around taiwan in retaliation for policies, visit taiwanese defense ministry says the exercises of violated the iron sovereignty and breached un rules. talks to revive the 2015 iran nuclear agreement . are set to resume indiana on thursday. the us special envoy for iran, robert malley is on his way to the austrian capital hubbard. mirandi is an advisor
to the arabian delegation in vienna. he says the energy crisis has left western powers in a week in negotiating position. there are a number of issues. one is the crisis in europe and the high energy prices that the world is facing, the americans and europeans, desperately need more fuel and lower prices. there's also the fact that the russians and chinese have been improving their relations with iran, and iran has been improving its relations with both the europe, europe, and the united states on the relative decline. whereas non western countries, such as iran, china, russia on the rise. and if the europeans and americans waste more time, it's not going to be to their benefit, especially with the fries coming this winter. so the iranians, as they negotiated in good faith in 2015 and also a few months ago,
they're willing to have a deal. they're willing to restart the nuclear deal, but the americans have to accept that day because of the violations that they committed in the past that they have to give you run the necessary assurances so that the iranians are not fooled again by the americans. that the iranians are not harmed again by some mac, some southern policy change in washington. russian forces have been targeting ukraine, southern port city of nikolai of and the eastern region of dawn. yeske moscow said its forces destroyed for warehouses, storing rockets, artillery, and ammunition, or abdul hamid looks at the toll. the war is taking on citizens living in the east . the heart wrenching good byes as victim mujica is carried away. at 87, he and his wife lydia are about to embark on their new life as displaced persons.

a towards can boot prompting ukraine's president involved to me as the lensky to order to force relocation of civilians from didn't yet screeching. an estimated 2 to 300000 are believed to still be living there. zelinski wants them to leave before autumn water, electricity, and gas already scarce, says maddie, as georgia who managed to reach the nearest train station some 50 kilometers away from commodore, squinted chris kumato. melissa, because danger to life is getting bigger every day. we were told that there won't be any heating. now we have water for a few hours on a good day. sometimes we don't for 2 or 3 days. we could cope, but we have to leave for the sake of our children. this is a war of attrition under ground and long range missiles from the sky is started in the name of liberating and protecting russian speaker, such as valentina abram, an officer who must go said we're facing genocide by authorities in keith. the only
momentum valentina is carrying an old photograph of her mother and sister taken nearly 50 years ago. she survived the german occupation of ukraine during the 2nd world war. she says the russian bombardments with modern weaponry are far worse, and everything is shaking inside me. i can't calm down. i was all alone all day yesterday and today i was going crazy. they are beasts jacko's. god forgive me for what i'm saying. how's that possible? did journey towards western ukraine will take several days. no one here knows when they will be back, but as the air sirens goes off, once again, many know, leaving their hometown was the best option. for adaptive hamid al jazeera, the 1st grain cargo ship to leave ukraine since the russian invasion, no sailed through turkey's boss for straits on the way to lebanon. earlier,
a team of inspectors boarded the ship to check its cargo and documents. ship is being monitored by the new joint coordination center in istanbul, turkish, russian, ukrainian, and u. n. staff taking part 100 deal signed last month. so m casado has been following the ship as it passed through stumble. finally, it is here, really all flag vessel roads going a cross through it's somebody boss for right now, it's on its way to final destination 11. on 3 pool. the court is carrying and nearly $27000.00 pounds of grain. according to the un, according to the un office shows, they have conducted the inspection and a 3 hours and according to the inspection result, everything was consistent with what the j. c. c joint control center. and someone was informed by the ukraine authorities before the vessel. you parted or the
support and the building representatives, the civilian body. let me say the joint control center had the chance to talk with the crew members of the russell to have an idea about this mandatory inquiry or the challenges on the way and some technical details. and now everybody's waiting for the vessel to reach lebanon, according to what we have been hearing from the representatives here. it may take 2 to 3 days for the vessel to reach its final destination. of course, these vessels are going to come back to odessa to have more grains, to explore the world markets. and as they come to the black sea, they will have one more inspection by the authorities and assembled by the joint control center. as russia is very sensitive that these vessels shall not be carrying weapons ukraine on their way back to the port german chancellor shaw says
there's no technical reason to delay the return of a gas turbine to russia for the node stream one pipeline. it's stranded in germany, in an escalating energy standoff with moscow. russia blamed issues with the turbine for drastically cut gas flows to europe. and all i felt says it works and should be delivered. me of experience is caught from nothing to what is important to me is to make it clear that this turbine can be used at any time. there is nothing to prevent its transport to russia, except that the russian buyers must inform us that they also want the turbine. the buyers must provide the necessary information for customs transferred to russia. dominant cane has more from berlin. so, so worth bearing in mind that the words that's and chancellor shots used to trying to give a degree of certainty, security to the german population and indeed to the e. you at a wider level have to be seen also on the basis of what the g 7 has put out to day,
where they criticize the war in ukraine from the russian perspective. and said, they do not believe that russia is a provider of energy that can be relied upon or strong words, both from the g 7 and from mr. shots. but the thing that's really motivating the governments mindset right now is how much gas can they store right now against the demands the needs of winter government is sent that the gas storage facilities here needs to be filled to between 85 to 90 percent capacity by towards the end of ot in the fall season, they say november, well, right now they're very far away from that sort of tackle. and that's just germany. we know that a similar situation, if not quite so bad, pertains and several other e u countries who are dependent on russian energy. so that informs the perspective
of what i was saying about the g 7. but also about what mr. shots, his hat to say. he's in a bit of a bind, he wants the russians to return to the contractual delivery of gas. but he also wants to get away from the dependency on russian gas. quite hard to square those 2 issues. indonesia and the u. s. a. holding the largest ever joint military exercises with more than $5000.00 personnel taking part the stairs drills include additional participants, clothing japan, a more than a dozen observing countries. i come at a time of heightened tensions in the region. jessica washington reports from south sumatra and denisia a show of unity and strength, indonesia and the us have held annual military exercises for more than a decade. but this year is different, as the exercises expand to include other countries in asia pacific. really has been thursday, been region 14 and help each other for armies military sit on the other
2 to do this kind of mine train. and when we're together like this for stronger when we're together work and we're better join partners. troops will participate in live fire exercises, medical training, search and rescue operations, amphibious exercises, and more. in its 16th iteration, the guru to shield exercises have expanded with its largest, ever roster of participants and a number of countries participating for the 1st time. japan is among those countries, including in paratrooper training here in south sumatra. australia and singapore are also taking part furniture and other countries including france, south korea and india are invited to observe the 2 week drills. the exercises are happening at a time of growing concerns among the us and its allies about china's military
assertiveness on issues such as ty, one and the south china sea. they'd be willing to pull out the washington is trying to protect confidence in the existing international order and take steps to help ensure it fully. because the u. s. neglected china's unilateral behavior for a very long time. and now they're making more of an effort to be able to respond militarily to china in that regard. indonesia is not a u. s. ally and has long pursued a foreign policy, which it describes as free and active. but it has also pushed back against china's maritime incursions into its waters. journalists here asked the indonesian armed forces commander, undeclared, but casa, whether the exercises were intended to send a message to beijing. so as i gotta not at all, we have always done this training. if someone wants to read it that way. well, that's not our intention at all. these drills involving several countries will continue until mid august. jessica washington out his era,
but to roger indonesia. frank, as president says, talks with the international monetary fund on by law package will restart this month. randall wicked, i'm a single lay down his 25 year plan for the country impoundment. he says he will focus on cutting debt and creating an export economy. sher lanka has been in a deep financial crisis since 2019 with him as anger took off his last month after go to biology park. so quit falling mass protest is through a state of kansas is voted to preserve abortion rights in a closely watched referendum, voters reject as a proposed change of the states constitution. it would have allowed the republican controlled legislature to ban or restrict access to the procedure. the thought, your name reports ah, this time the tears among pro abortion rights advocates were of joy. kansas voters provided their 1st victory. since the u. s. supreme court overturned federal
protections for abortions in due course, in a voter. political system came together today and voted, know anybody know, and their neighbors, anybody know, i'm teaching. i'm in really demonstrated our free theories here in kansas airline motor squashed to proposed amendment to the kansas state constitution that would have overturned a 2019 decision declaring access to abortion is a fundamental right if, if abortion rights are, are, are, are protected here in kansas. and again, republican leading state on i think that that indicates that there is a big did the states have those trigger was probably are out of stuck with what the electorate watch. the kansas decision will have a regional impact. the nearby state of texas, oklahoma, and missouri now have bands on abortion, which means women will have to travel elsewhere to get one. it is unclear what the
next move will be for abortion opponents in kansas. we have to rein in the supreme courts imposing their opinion and making up a constitutional right to abortion in our constitution, which isn't there hooters across america will continue to weigh in at the state ballot box in the next few months, people in california, kentucky, and vermont will decide if women should have access to an abortion in their state. natasha name al jazeera volcano has erupted in iceland, south west of the capital reykjavik. you're looking at life pictures of molten magma rising to the surface. it's the 1st time the volcano has erupted since september. since then pressure has been building up under ground. that's what's causing the molten magnitude burst through again. plains have been prohibited from flying over the sides.
