8:06 pm
i urge you to continue or sit in until all of our demands met. he went on to say he is prepared to fall as a martyr for reform. think we can go over to the dosage of boundary that she joins us live from bank dance. listen to the call for his basically for his followers to continue this protest movement in the parliament. yes, sammy, we had heard conflicting reports about a 72 hour deadline that was issued to the demonstrators by the aid to move the other solder on tuesday about the fact that they should evacuate the parliament building. but now when he heard from that, she had reader himself, he said he wants the so called peaceful revolution to continue. and he's urge his supporters to remain in the parliament building and the surrounding areas too, until their demands are met. he calls for as the current parliament to be dissolved
8:07 pm
and for early elections. he very much took the tone of a person who is not seeking any personal gains from this process. he is just looking for a way of getting rid of the corruption within the system that exists. and he was adamant that of course, corruption exists in all various levels of government. he said, one of the ways we can get rid of it is to by having another round of elections to bring in and new people. of course, most other, all other took part in the previous election, which happens in october here last year. and he had 73 m p 's and power, but in june decided to withdraw from the political sphere saying that he could not take part because it was corrupt and he didn't want to have any part in it. since then things have certainly escalated on saturday for the 2nd time. within a few days, his supporters known as southern stormed into the green zone area and they occupied
8:08 pm
the parliament building, fearing that the other groups that were going to nominate a candidate to be put in place of the new prime minister, something that they were not going to support so this later statement is the 1st time we've heard from most other all southern and certainly there has been ongoing negotiations between various factions within the parliament that still exists with the current prime minister myself to me. and they were saying that they're ready to sit down and talk. we've been waiting to hear from us. and as we just heard, he's certainly not ready for dialogue. and he said there is no point. he said that they have had discussions and dialogues in the past. with the same group of people, he said that he's not willing to engage all that came from those discussions were corruption and havoc and that they are pointless at this point. so he urge to supporters that again to continue their peaceful demonstrations. he said, and he also took the opportunity to unity,
8:09 pm
to thank the security forces for their help and assistance throughout this period. at that point, when he mentioned that there's no fruits to be borne from dialogue, an indication perhaps that the hopes that this might be resolved through negotiations behind the scenes that that is not going to happen right now. no, certainly not. and we know that the negotiations have been happening behind closed doors over the past few days. and what was clear was that all the different sides were ready to come back to the table and talk to pardon, members of other else others party. even though not himself specifically, but it is now clear that he is not interested, nor are his representative, going to be taking part in any kind of a national dialogue at this stage, which really sets a different tone. now there was some kind of a hope on many levels that since there was talk of the demonstrators evacuating
8:10 pm
a parliament building itself by friday, that it was an indication that other southern was willing to sit down with the remaining politicians in parliament and tried to reach an agreement, but it is clear that is not something he's interested in at all, and he just wants to start from scratch at this point. of course that will be a whole other issue now to go back to the polls where the country went in october and they were not able to form a government. they iraqi government to shall not form since the elections were held in october. there are still no budget for the year 2022. when this country has been making a tremendous amount of money on oil sales record oil sales really. up to the month of july, they have made more revenues over over $70000000000.00. that is more than the entire year of 2021, and yet the money is not being spent because there is no budget, there is no government in place to be able to allocate where the funds would go. so there really is a lot of frustration among ordinary iraq. you saying that this political
8:11 pm
instability is just hurting the average iraqi more than anything else? all right, thanks so much. stilson jabari now talks to revive the 2015 iraq nuclear agreement, sent to resume in vienna for us special envoy, robert malley is on his way to the austrian capital for the discussions that begin on thursday to head on the washington of been holding in direct negotiations until now. the agreement broke down in 2018 also the us on the president, donald trump pulled out the wrong, says it's ready to reach a deal that guarantees its rights. i'm just here, as i've done, the shami has more from vienna. this round, oh so cold discussions that 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
8:12 pm
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 rekey mora is already in vienna. and all the parties are also on route to vienna. the, the meeting would be a, mostly a discussion on this text. the text that is been labeled as 20 july texts. and they seems to be some kind of agreement or understanding from all parties on this text. and not really much is known on what exactly they were peons as being the mediators for this m a, you know, this a deal that was established in 2015 has in, but 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 see is the last chance to revive this deal, especially that there is no actually much left of the a period that was established for this deal. it was supposed to end up in about 2
8:13 pm
years from now, but the way the robbins have seen it is that there's been so much exhaustion from all parties and everyone needs to see a result of the year. the, the iranians need to see sanctions imposed by the u. s. letter, 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 or regarding the nuclear program by the iranians mohammed man. and these and advisors, the radian delegation in vienna. he says the energy crisis is left western powers in a week and 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,
8:14 pm
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 are 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 at the romance are not harmed again by some mac, some southern policy change in washington the 1st grain cargo ship to leave ukraine since the russian invasion has sailed through turkey's basra straight on its way to lebanon. earlier, a team of inspectors boarded the ship to check its cargo and documents. the ship is

8:16 pm
those harbors. but things are working and they're working well today. and i think we can only be, be moved by the images that we've seen coming out of, of his stumble today. the, the people who run odessa and the 2 other ports will need to let us know when they can take inbound traffic. obviously we're going to have to see some outbound traffic 1st, but we hope things will start moving at a quicker pace. soon. yelman's warring parties have agreed to extend the full month truce for 2 more months. just hours before it was due to expire. the un envoy m and said the pact between the government and who the rebels will now last until october, the 2nd, the announcement came hours after no mommy delegation concluded 3 days of talks with the healthy leadership. that's on yardage also spoke to us about the morning yemen. he says the extension of the truce shows commitment from rival factions. we
