Pompeo: Chinese threat may be worse than a 'Cold War 2.0'
"US Secretary of state might compare has bill named middle of Oprah this week you warning that the threat from China good welby worse than that posed by the Soviet Union at the height of the cold. War Mr Pompeo's visits is taking in the Czech Republic Austria, Poland, and Slovenia. This is what he said yesterday. The contrast between free and unfree society has never been clear. Free nations must work together to confront authoritarian threats. Chief among those threats is the Chinese Communist Party and its drive to control people and information at our economies. When a Balkans correspondent guided Loni has been following his journey. Welcome back to the program guy good to have you with us. I wipe out the with Slovenia with no disrespect obviously to the nation itself. I think far enough I mean it's only two million people live here. So it's not exactly huge, but it is a NATO member and there is a family connection of course, Emma and Mr. Pompeo made that point in his opening remarks saying that he brought greetings for Melania trump who is noticeably absent from her homeland. She was born in San Nitsa as Melania canals and she doesn't come back here very often. But Mr Pompey's said she was very envious about him visiting nurse Levin in particular Lake bled where he was doing his news conference but. The rather factors as well. So Slovenia is at at the moment and this is I wouldn't say was out of character, but it's just a matter of where how the political winds blowing here at the moment at the moment in the Prime Minister's office you've got somebody who thinks Mr trump is rather smashing fallow where prime, minister. Yannis Yansha uses twitter almost as enthusiastically as MR trump and spends quite a lot of that time. Enthusiastically, retweeting Mr Trump's tweets. So if you're going to have a friendly audience in Europe at the moment of your representative of the trump administration then Slovenia's an office place to stop off so more than simply passing on greetings from floaters and enjoying a slap up lunch at Lake bled we've just heard there a clip from Secretary of State Pompeo. Making China the real focus of his visit. He really did, and you only speak for about three or four minutes yesterday bend and I think at least two and a half of those minutes were spent really having a good old dig on against China before that. He was speaking about well, he was actually signing a declaration with the Foreign Minister of Slovenia about five G. Security, and this is all part of pushing what the trump administration calls. They're clean network program, and this is an attack on Chinese. Telecom. Companies Chinese tech companies hallway in particular Zeti threatening for the Balkan they've both been very high profile targets of the trump administration and leave you signing up to this five of this clean network program. You'll basically making a commitment, you'll knocking to use any untrustworthy. Vendors in your five G. Systems and the United States is saying it wouldn't have any of these vendors anywhere near any of its embassies went allowed anywhere near any of this State Department. Systems. A lot of come countries, of course are not signing up to this, but Slovenia has and it's got its five G. Network installed by. As of last month, take that way well has replied China Chinese commentators of wounded central and eastern Europe shouldn't be fooled. What would describes Mike pompeo embracing an entirely entirely cold war mindset it is. It is a dangerous thing. Isn't it when you start going into the likes of the Czech, Republic and Poland and Slovenia, and START TALKING ABOUT IDEOLOGICAL THREATS Yes I'm you know he really has gone the full evil empire on? Am You when you talk about Cold War rhetoric either way that he's he's talking really as I mean, as you heard in the clip there, it sounds like something from the nineteen eighties a talks again chief among these threats as the. Chinese. Communist. Party. It's drive to control people and. Information and our economies, and it's it's again talking about freedom loving people and becoming a five G. Clean country as Slovenia has done today as solidifies staff position. In this fight, the tide is turning against the Chinese Communist Party in its efforts to restrict freedom for all of us and I think what's interesting guys of course he's not saying China he's specifically saying. The Chinese Communist, party so he's criticizing the the system of government and control rather than country and the people itself, and that's I suppose the GATT out card But this is the way that the trump administration is going I recommend everyone to have a a good read of the clean network program just to see what they're saying in that and. Quite apart from anything else it does make it clear and not that it's part of the trump administration's drive and it's very interesting phrasing not the United States, not the State Department but the trump administration. So a spot of electioneering perhaps
U.S. accuses China of sponsoring criminal hackers targeting coronavirus vaccine research
"Company's working on Corona virus vaccines and treatments. Two former engineering students have been indicted in connection with the case. They're said to have worked both the personal profit on for one of Beijing spy agencies. U. S. Officials said the case showed China had joined what they called the shameful Club of nations who provide safe havens to cyber criminals in exchange for them stealing intellectual property. Assistant attorney general for National security is John Demas. This case highlights the efforts being taken by the FBI and our partners to counter the threat posed by China. To the economic and national security of the United States. It also demonstrates the FBI's commitment to protect our nation. And sends a message that as director Ray mentioned just two weeks ago, when China violates our criminal laws and international norms, we're not going to tolerate The indictments came as the U. S Secretary of state Mike Pompeo, visiting London praised Britain for banning far away from its five G network. China says this decision will harm Britain's trade prospects Mr Pompeo said he wanted to build a coalition against what he called the threat from China. We want every nation to work together to push back against the Chinese Communist Party's efforts in every dimension that I described to you today that it certainly includes the United Kingdom. Includes every country way hope weaken, build out a coalition that understands this will work collectively to convince the Chinese Communist Party. It's not in their best interest to engage in this kind of behavior. South Korea's Internet giant Neighbor Corp has moved back up
Why Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace
"Over the past half century. Israel has built hundreds of settlements or Jewish enclaves on the land it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War of nineteen sixty seven seven. This land claimed by Palestinians for their future state which is why settlements are seen by many as an obstacle to peace the president of over four hundred thousand Israeli settlers living in the West Bank basically means that a Palestinian state cannot come into being is our Israel correspondent respondent Mason Jerusalem. Many of those settlements are stuck in between the main Estonian cities and towns so contiguous state cannot exist as long as they're there and their presence also means that it was obvious that so in effect they ensure that the military occupation of the Westbank continues the the announcement came just ahead of a key date in Israel. Today is the deadline for opposition leader. Benny Ganz to build coalition bowling. September's inconclusive election Prime Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu has already failed to form a government. Both candidates praised the trump administration's change in policy but the decision was America at odds with much of the international community. The international consensus regarding the settlements has been there in contravention of the full Geneva Convention. Attention which basically says that transfer or settlement of an occupied territory by the occupying power is against international law. And that's been the interpretation Shen of the Geneva Convention regarding Israeli settlements by most of the leading legal experts. There are some dissenting views of. Israel clings to those dissenting ending views in building the settlements. But that's been the broad consensus for decades now and so in that sense Mike Pompeo's announcement came as something of surprise. Well the competitive management didn't come as a surprise because certain elements within the administration were very pro Israel and pro the settlement lobby chief among them the US ambassador to Israel. Israel David Friedman who before becoming a master was both trump's bankruptcy la and financial backer of the settlements. They have been trying for the past three years to get a clear statement out of the administration saying that American doesn't see the settlements as being illegal and it has to be noted that in the past also the Reagan administration. Distraction made similar statements. So it hasn't always been one hundred percent clear what the American position on this has been. US public statements on settlement activities. In the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. The Carter Administration categorically concluded that Israel's establishment of civilian settlements was inconsistent with international law. However in Nineteen eighty-one president? Reagan disagreed with that conclusion. And stated that he didn't believe that the settlements were inherently l.. Legal actually most of the American administration's haven't even talked about the legality. They've called the settlements an obstacle to peace instead of diving into this rather controversial legal question so in a sense this kind of puts a finer point on kind of formalizes. Something that from the American standpoint had been kind of informally the case. What has been the case over the past three years? Because the trump administration had been very ambivalent towards the Israeli settlement activity previous administrations had condemned settlements especially the first Bush administration tried to limit funding to Israel while the tantamount building was going on the trump administration and some of its representatives have been much more friendly towards the past two years. The trump administration has made a series of statements and actions regarding the Israel Palestine conflict back in December seventeen nineteen. They announced that they recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital that in a few minutes later move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A few months ago we had the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. And in between these. We've had a number of steps. Was the Palestinians. We had cutting off of aid various Palestinian agencies to the United Nations nations agency which works with Palestinian refugees the closure of the Palestinian mission in Washington. All these things have put out a very clear signal where the trump administration restauration stands in the conflict. And even the timing of this announcement just a couple of days before the deadline for Bennigan's to form a government. Do you think it's connected to the current political the turmoil in Israel not directly connected to the current political situation for two reasons festival. It hasn't been times as some of the previous gestures were to help Out On the eve of an election other convenient junctures it doesn't seem to have been closely coordinating with Israeli government. That seems to have been something. which was it was very much an internal decision of administration? And do you think it's significant that it was Mr Pompeo who made the announcement. Well that's probably more about American politics in parents trying to show that he's not trump in many ways and loyal to some of trump's closest advisers. I think pump is also looking beyond the horizon of the trump trump administration and shoring up his own political bias. Perhaps his own run for the White House and this is a popular move among voters who he would also be relying upon one day if he runs for the candidacy and for the White House himself and now that Mr Pompeo has made this policy reversal. What do you think the immediate impact will be the speaking? Both Israeli officials Palestinians. No one's expecting an immediate impact even though they've been promises by Netanya before the last two election campaigns of going even further annexing parts of the West Bank. All those plans on hold because it doesn't a political deadlock there's no coalition in Israel. We have Netanyahu position bet against both failing instigate a majority Israel has been building settlements or the past fifty years regardless of what the administration positions being and on the Palestinian side. They've lost lost hope in anything. Good for them coming out. The trump administration long ago so for that. This wasn't a surprise. And they're facing their daily challenges whatever someone is saying in Washington it material to them but what about the prospects for grander scale change for the notion of annexation or in the other direction a meaningful peace process so the impact is perhaps lung It won't change anything the next few weeks and months. But when finally new government is formed in Israel. If it's a right wing government then the impetus to go ahead and AMEX parts. What's the West Bank will increase? Because now they seem to have a green light from the administration and even if the new government will be more central government under Benny Gansel some other interests lita. Yep It'll be much more difficult for them to justify so these ready public making any kind of changes on the ground baptists manning so because people will say them but the Americans okay so why make any of these changes if the settlements especially the ones which are deep within the West Bank or allowed to continue to grow that means the majority patient won't end either and any prospect of Palestinian statehood will be non-existent loop Israel basically in charge of one st with millions of Palestinians without optical rights and that's not the democratic say that Israel claims and takes pride in being so it's a situation which really is ready to have a solution Lucien right now and if anything compare announcement has made a solution for that even more remote
"mr pompeo" Discussed on WRVA
"She's here later in the hour. A major player has emerged over the past year in internal state -partment family wellness initiatives. Susan Pompeo wife of secretary of state, Mike Pompeo has taken cues from a couple of wives of former CIA director's who built up family initiatives at the CIA when their husbands headed the agency, you'll recall, Mr. Pompeo, was also CIA director before becoming America's top diplomat last year. More on MRs Pompeo's emerging role from guy Taylor national security and foreign policy reporter at the Washington Times. Guy, what have you seen? This is the third time she traveled with him. She captured some international headlines back in January when she went with him to the Middle East and at the time, we're in a government shutdown, and there was some media reports that diplomatic unnamed sources, of course complained that it was inappropriate that she would travel with him. At a time when. Department employees weren't getting paychecks because of the shutdown. So what's interesting is that she would be willing to talk at this time. And she, she kind of opened up in this really behind the scenes way where she talked about how, you know, Mike, Pompeo's got this, this kind of reputations as somebody who's really liked in private meetings, having this sort of charisma, when the cameras are turned off other foreign leaders and diplomats. They like appreciate this. They always seem to leave meetings with him smiling, even when they vehemently disagree with conservative policies such as on Iran, nuclear deal, trashing the Obama administration's foreign pulsing species, his promotion of Trump's America, I share, etc. So in public Pompeii, oh, has this other reputation of somebody who's really kind of stiff and a little bit grouchy? He doesn't really connect on a charisma. Level. That say former secretary of State, John Kerry did on his trips around the world, especially in Europe, and that's where Susan pond, pale really comes in where if she's traveling with her husband suddenly, you'll see him out in public smiling at times, which is which is interesting. It's almost like he's a little bit softer and more likable. It's definitely an interesting dynamic, and anything, you know, in terms of inside baseball, it's worth considering given that she is traveling, as far as we know on the taxpayer dime. We're speaking with guy Taylor national security editor at the Washington Times. His piece is called. Do you feel safe? Susan Pompeo makes happiness and security of diplomatic families her mission. So you mentioned or she mentioned to you that she asks, do you feel safe? She picked us up on her own. I think it's a big priority for Mike Pompeo and look, I'm not going to pretend that I went into deep discussion with Susan Pompeo about this. But the presumption from the journalistic side secretary Pompeo really made a name for himself back in the Benghazi hearings. The really went after then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, where of course ambassador Chris Stevens had died in an Terry who tack and Libya, and Pompeo really paid a name for himself on that you can imagine that now that he is the tide th- the roles switched and here he is, as secretary of state the security of diplomats a huge issue for him. He's, he's, he's kind of obsessed with it because I think he understands that it would be politically bad, if an incident in which American diplomats were endangered on his watch. But at the same time, you know, the whole Benghazi thing. Away from politics that Harvick incident really elevated the awareness of the fact that American diplomats route dangerous situations. You just don't really hear about it. We've got embassies in well, over one hundred countries around the world and a big thing for him. And I, I think that, that Susan Pompeo, she has a unique opportunity to, to really look at the secretary of state spouse shows up at your embassy. And you might you you as a career diplomat year. You're amongst one hundred American State Department employees at an embassy anywhere in the world. And the secretary of state comes through, you might get a selfie with him or a few minutes of private greeting that he gives diplomats. But if the secretary of state's wife shows up and his actually holding a round table meeting. You know, you've got a chance to sit down with the top directly in cock. And kind of author wick, it was interesting because she told me that she feels that people are really Janu. Even with her and these meetings for the Astra should, you know, do you think people just tell you what you want to hear and they're afraid about, you know this being like a whistle blower thing. And she cheat definitely felt that people are people are genuine, and they recognize kind of uniqueness of this, this setup sort of unfolded before our eyes. Thanks guy Taylor, national security and foreign policy reporter at the Washington Times. Thirteen minutes now after the hour.
US, Iran conflict hardening over attacks on 2 tanker ships
"Tensions between the US and Iran are again, ratcheting up as the US accused Iran of orchestrating an attack Thursday on Japanese and Norwegian oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, Iran, denied any involvement, and accused the Trump administration of trying to sabotage diplomacy secretary of state. Mike Pompeo directly accused Iran attacking the oil, tankers just hours after the incident. It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran, responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Amman today, this assessment is based on intelligence. The weapons used the level of expertise needed to execute the operation recent similar rating attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency jacked with a high degree of sophistication. On Thursday night. The United States also released video of which acclaimed was runs revolutionary guard removing an unexploded mind from the side of the Japanese oil, tanker attacked, however, the president of the Japanese company that owns the ships that it was not attacked by mines, but to flying objects, he also said he does not believe any objects where tach to the side of the ship Iranian ships did approach the oil tankers after the attack. But according to multiple news accounts. The Iranians helped rescue dozens of crew members from the tankers the timing of the incident, also raise many questions as it came as Japanese Prime minister was visiting Iran and an attempt to bring Ron in the United States. The negotiating table. Iranian-american treat a party said, quote sounds like some are afraid Japan may succeed in starting diplomacy. The message of peers to be, don't you dare stand in the way of my war plans? Treat a party said last month, the US blamed, Iran for attacking four other oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, but offered no evidence will. For more, we're joined now by VJ per Shah, director of tri-continental institute for social research, chief editor of leftward books. He's also the chief correspondent of globetrotter he's the author of several books, including the poorer nations possible. History of the global south. Welcome to mockery now VJ per shod respond to it's happening right now in the Gulf of phone line. Hello, amy. It's I think important to bench into the woods you just used. You said that only hours after the attack, or the bombings in the Norwegian and Japanese thank the US secretary of state went out there and blamed, Iran hours of to, you know, it's very interesting. There's a kind of rush to blame Iran for anything that's been happening around the go. Full moves people who look closely at the oil business understand that fifty percent of the world's oil goes through the Gulf of law, Moos, the understand that, you know, getting oil is a dangerous activity, all kinds of things happen are accidents this by the see there, a series of it'll quite a common risks faced by all tankers. Iran is not one of those high on the list of Sparta's risk assessors are concerned. And the of course, this is the first thing, the United States government has said, as you said, without the evidence. So within a few is and without any evidence, the United States government wants more provoking, some sort of response from Iran, perhaps, or at least to try to galvanize public opinion to believe that Iran is a threat to the would what's really important here is yes. The fact that Shinzo Ave, the first Japanese Prime minister to visit Iran in forty one years. He goes to Iran ah shortly after the Iranian Foreign Minister visited him in Japan. In fact, Mr. Zarif visited Shinzo abbey in his home. They had a very important conversation with Shinzo obvious said that the Iranian nuclear deal is a factor of stability for West Asia. This goes directly opposed to the Trump adminis-. Stations view and what's very important here is we're not talking about a country, that's far from American the American audit. This is Japan, a reliable ally of the United States, which is not only reliant upon Iranian oil, but understands that, the warmongering in West Asia is going to be very bad, not only for Eurasia, but for the would and I think we need to understand that as Shinzo Ave is in Japan, this attack this several Taj. Whatever it is, is an rallies on the Novi jn Japanese tankers. And again as Shinzo Ave is in Iran. That's right. He wasn't there on the first time in forty one years, and he has been saying, actually interesting. This is a right-wing prime minister. This is not a person of the left he's been saying that there needs to be a return to the table. It's not only Japan saying this Amy. It's also the Europeans, the Europeans of very keen that the US not break fully from this Iran deal. The Germans in fact have been looking for noted mechanism for payments India, which is one of the largest budgets, Iranian oil had to back off because of these new very tight sanctions put in place by the US government. But the Indians are also not that interested in this new approach by the Trump administration. They would like to continue to buy oil. In fact, it's kind of 'isolation that the United States is facing its is related alongside the Israelis the Saudis and the United Arab. Emirates nobody else wants war. Nobody else wants this deal to end. And so I think it's really out of frustration that you see the United States jumped the gun come in very quickly and say that Iran is, is doing this, Ronn is doing that. And therefore, we have to retaliate. It's important to remember that in two thousand seventeen the CIA created a special unit. Call the Iran mission center run by Michael d Andry, and this is an important outfit because its entire mandate has been to ratchet up pressure on Iran. I don't know what happened to the Norwegian or thank. Oh, the Japanese thank good. But I'd be very interested to hear what the Iran mission center at the has been up to since twenty seventeen and runs. Foreign minister mohammad-javad reef tweeted Thursday, reported attacks on Japan related tankers occurred while PM obey Shinzo. Was meeting with our toll hominy for extensive and friendly. Talks suspicious doesn't begin to describe what likely transpired this morning, Iran's proposed regional dialogue forum is imperative. He said, VJ per shot. Mr. Zarif is a very capable diplomatic very reasonable person. He has been leading Iranian diplomacy, and has opened many doors to a diplomatic solution for the standoff around Iran. And I think we need to take seriously what Mr. the saying here when he uses the woods suspicious, I think we should underline that would again. I'm not saying what happened in, in the Gulf of our Moose's very clear that there are alternative explanations. We don't know what happened. We should be suspicious of the negative would forward by the US department, but we should also be suspicious about what happened, we need to ask questions, considered this form a regional standpoint, the United States, the Russians and others are in the middle of very serious diplomatic effort in Ghana stone. There are meetings of the US held in cutter, there are meetings that the. Russians of held in Moscow to dial down the almost nineteen year war that has been taking place in Afghanistan. Imagine if the United States strikes against Iran right now, it would bring catastrophe further to Ghana stone, it would open up the wounds in Iraq, and in Syria, Mr. Zuma's made it very clear that in a tack on Iran is not merely an attack on Iran. It's going to create even more catastrophe in that region. That's one of the main reasons why the Chinese are very interested in not allowing any kind of warn that region. They ever lauded stick, especially in terms of their belt and road initiative, which cuts right through this region goes three run. Nobody wants a war here. It's important for Americans to stand that the US government is deeply isolated on this issue of Iran. And on the way that the US government portrays, Iran in the rest of the would Iran is seen. As a stabilizing force in that region for some strange reason. The US government believes that Iran is an interloper. In other words, there almost eighty million Iranians who live in West Asia, and this seemed to be out of place, whereas the United States, which is, you know, thousands of miles away a portrays itself as a regional active. This is very bizarre for people around the world, and I think Americans need to understand it on Thursday, members of the House Armed Services committee from both parties said Pompeo told them in a classified briefing that the United States could use the two thousand one authorization for these military force or a you enough to attack Iran without congressional approval. This is Michigan democrat Elissa slot. Can we were absolutely presented with a full formal presentation on how the two thousand and one A M F might authorize war on Iran? Yes, I'm sir. I'm sorry, sir. Secretary Pompeo set it with his own words. The af was passed in the wake of the nine eleven attacks authorizes, the president take military action against those responsible along with any quote associated forces, your response to that VJ per shot. And what role do you think Saudi Arabia is playing in all of this? I mean look, this is very chilling. Very disturbing marching us into a war. In other words, they're marching the world into war. They're pushing Iran, the sanctions of attic, catastrophic impact on Iran's external revenues its ability to earn money. There is serious medical crisis inside the country, I think focus should be on that. We've already seen how sanctions destroyed countries how they put a lot of stress on the country, but that's not the focus of anybody's attention. In allowing people like Mr. Pompeo John Bolton. Another set the agenda here, you know, they're being allowed to say that Iran is the criminal country. Must be there for tact. I think this is very disturbing. Saudi Arabia of forces playing a lead role in this. I mentioned the Iran mission center, Mr Michael Andreas is very close to the Saudis. In fact, has. Played an important role in the drone program, and it's likely to have had some role in Saudi warned Yemen. So I mean, this is something people to consider this very quick, March to war must be stopped. The reason saying this is not just about Iran. It's about the region. It's about Eurasia and the Trump administration, I think is playing fast and loose with the facts and is being very reckless with world affairs on this in a we see the Trump administration behaving recklessly mercurially, perhaps in other parts of the world. That's true, but with Iran, I think the finger is right on the trigger and the very fact that bumpier gave this briefing should suggest to people that this is not the time to be cynical. Sick sit back and say, I don't think they're going to do it. It's very likely that the United States is going to make some strike on Iran, and that strike is going to open further the.

Pompeo Makes Unscheduled Trip to Iraq to Press U.S. Concerns About Iran
"Been a busy few days of the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo made an unscheduled visit to Iraq as tensions rise in the Middle East, then he popped over to London to reaffirm American warnings to the UK government about ties with China's telecoms giant Walli will warnings bahide. Let's speak not to Jacob park steady. Head of the US Ambi America's program at the think tank Chatham house Jacob will we'll get onto hallway in a second start with the Middle East, Mr. Pompeo turn of him Baghdad unexpectedly and a trip that was interpreted as an attempt to reassure the Iraqi government is these tensions rise over Iran. It's an attempt to reassure the Iraqi government, but in jersey away, it's all attempt to reaffirm America's preeminent place in the Iraqi sort of political system, which is going to be difficult because the US commitment to Iraq is at the end of very very long logistical chain where Iran shares a border with Iraq. Iran. Shares a religion with a substantial number of the Rockies. There are huge long standing cultural political ties, they're so Iran despite having a fraction of the overall economic military and political power of the United States on the global stage has much more directly leverage over rock than the United States dies at has in a much more long standing way US could eventually decide to reduce spread between the Middle East the wrong. They'll be there. So there's a fundamental. Disparity which goes against the broad power and Iran, and I think palm pales visiting the tempt to to try to shore up the US position in the face of that. I think his works out for him. Frankly, I think the the Iraqi government is obviously trying to balance between the two, but at the end of the day, they can read them out. And they understand that you know, that the people in their region are going to stand there region. In terms of influence, and and maintaining American influence and not just in Iraq different parts of the world. In order to go to Iraq, Mr. Pompeo, abruptly cancelled plans for meeting with Anglo Markle that didn't go down very well in Berlin. No, that's part and parcel with a broad deterioration in American German relations under the Trump administration. The president has clearly decided that uncle miracle is his foremost adversary in Europe that German cars or national security threat to the United States does arly that the the Germany is leveraging its position within the EU to wage economic war on on American manufacturing Americans in general, obviously, that's the some central misreading of situation if not outright abrogations, but the fact of the matter is that's bottled something's driving particular rain. And if the few a few Germans are thrown under it in the process, he doesn't really care. So I don't think palm pale has done any damage to his. His main constituency his boss, the president by angering the Germans, but the damage to American German pies in if there, and it's substantial on this is this is just part of this is it is it is Iran, which is seems to be dominating Fulton Washington. At the moment, we have the move to deploy Achraf carrier strike group to the Middle East. We have these concerns about security potential tax targeting American interests in the region. The US says we do not want war with Iran. But but it it doesn't give that impression by its

Israel pushes US to accept claim over occupied Golan Heights
"In one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Israel captured a territory known as the Golan Heights from Syria. During the Arab Israeli war over a decade later it officially annexed the heights, but the move was never recognized by the international community now as US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo visits Jerusalem. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is appealing for his country's occupation of the Golan Heights to be acknowledged the BBC's Barbara Platt Asha is traveling with Mr. Pompeo, prime minister Netanyahu conspicuously made the appeal while standing next to the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo. I think it's time that the international community recognize Israel's stay in the Golan. The fact that the Balon will always remain part of the state of Israel. This was after a year in which is rarely politicians have been urging both congress and the Trump administration to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. Neither man would answer questions about whether that was indeed in the cards, instead, they emphasized the threat of Iran and its allies, including on the Syrian side of the Golan. And they said they were working together to roll back what they called Iranian aggression in the region, some of Mr. Netanyahu's political opponents have speculated that President Trump might recognize Israel sovereignty in the Golan to help the prime minister in forthcoming elections. Whether or not that's the case, Mr Netanyahu is getting a strong show of American support and not only from Mr. Pompeo. Visit he set to meet Mr. Trump in the White House

"mr pompeo" Discussed on KQED Radio
"We're a co production of the BBC World Service PRI and W G B H here in Boston in his speech today in Cairo secretary state, Mike Pompeo, tried to convey two things. One reassurance. The United States under President Trump has reasserted its traditional role as a force for good in this region. And then a loud and clear reset of US policy in the Middle East. The good news is this the age of self inflicted American. Shame is over. And so are the policies that produce so much needless suffering pretty clear who he's talking about there. The BBC's Sally Nabil was in the audience today when Mike Pompeo spoke to an audience at the American University in Cairo. She says it's pretty easy to sum up the speech. If you want to put some headlines for his speech, it's criticism for Obama strategy in the Middle, East curbing Iran's influence in the region and the fight against radical Islam. I was. A bit taken aback when he criticized President Obama in a very clear explicit way. He was bluntly criticizing Mr. Obama's strategy in the Middle East, and he named specifically Iraq and Syria where Sharon Assad the Syrian president bombed his people were gas. According to Mr. Pompeo, and he said at that time, they come them the act, but they did nothing about. Yes. So the big headline, I guess is let you down the Trump administration has your back. But what did we actually learn from Pompeo specifically about Trump's policy in the Middle East? Actually, he was very concerned with Iran. It's one of his key points in his speech. And he even said that Iran now has a cancerous influence in the region in Syria in Yemen in Iraq. And he said that now the sanctions American sanctions on Iran. They are much check ter- than ever. The US will continue to get tougher and tougher until Iran acts like a normal country, according to him, what about Pompeo's notion that America is a liberating force for the Middle East, not necessarily an occupying force. I mean, how is that heard? We can put that into the wider context of the war on terror, which Mr. from peyot talked about very clearly I mean, he came here to the region with a reassurance to the Middle East partners that yes, we have decided to pull out our troops in Syria. But we are not doing that immediately. Nobody knows when he refused to give a time line. And that when we pull out that does not mean necessarily that we are quitting the fight against the so-called Islamic state group, and he's had clearly that America will not pull out until the mission is done, but he also referred to the fact that partners in the Middle East should do more. And this raises a lot of questions because some reports have been predicting. Saying that the US administration might ask some other partners like Egypt like Jordan, like Saudi Arabia like like, Mike. Emirates to send forces on the ground in Syria to replace the US chokes when they pull out on one hand and to curb the influence of Iran and its proxy forces on the ground on the other hand pump. Also blamed recent ISIS attacks in Iraq and the rise of ISIS on President Obama because he pulled troops out of Iraq. But at the same time Pompeo and Trump say the US can't be the world's policeman. One a lot of people in the Mideast. See that is a contradiction. Yeah. This is true. And to be honest that decision to pull out US troops from Syria took so many people by surprise. And even when Pompeo made a surprise visit to Iraq yesterday. A lot of reporters asked him if the US is going to do the same in Iraq. We have about five thousand troops in Iraq or or a bit more. And he didn't answer I think it's fair to say that what's going behind closed doors, and this trip is far more than what we know. What the public no statements for the press are very brief. And we are very genetic and very fluid, and you can't have any specific piece of information regarding anything, he's just laying very broad lines. And perhaps his still waiting for more talks with regional leaders to come up with a concrete strategy about how things I'm gonna go in the coming months. Finally, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah I'll see the host for Mike Pompeo today and praised from the secretary of state for CeCe. But CeCe is the focus of a lot of human rights. Critics and many believe that Egypt is worse now under CC than under whose name Mubarak. How is Pompeii was praise of him likely to go down among Egypt? Japan's actually many options believe that the current relationship between Ceasar regime, and the Trump administration is far better than the relationship between ceases regime and the Obama administration, and this is because the Obama administration used to press more when it comes to human rights. Rights violations in Egypt, but the general understanding here in Egypt is that the Trump administration does not see the issue of human rights as a priority. It's all about the fight against terror and radical Islam, and he sees that the current president president Sisi is doing a good job, and Mr. Pompeo made that very very clear whether in his press conference, or in the speech that he gave him the American University in Cairo the BBC Sally, Nobile speaking with us from Cairo. Really appreciate your time. Thank you Sally mob. I have a good day a new beginning that was actually the title of the two thousand nine speech delivered by Barack Obama the same venue where Pompeo appeared today. The American University of Cairo. I've come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world. One based on mutual interests and mutual respect. Obama was a newly elected president. He promised to end the US led war in Iraq. There was a sense that his speech would be the start of something different today. Pompeii speech was at times a direct rebuke of Obama's Mike the Abdelhadi is a political commentator. He remembers how I reacted to Bama back in two thousand nine people just loved him. I remember interviewing Egyptians on the streets of karo and people felt as if he was one of them some of them, of course, aware of the fact that he has the middle name Hussein. So there was a Muslim affinity feel like I remember one point one of the members of the audience shouted. We love you bum that didn't happen. Of course, when you're sector state compels speech at the ABC today. So vastly different context back then well embedded in Obama's speech was as you say a message of hope. For the world. And today, it's a message that pump AO mocked. Let's listen to that. He told you that the United States and the Muslim world needed, quote, a new beginning and of the results of these misjudgments have been dire-. So I mean, what do you think Magdi was Obama too idealistic? What did he get wrong? I mean, this is the thing an issue that will be a coupon historians for many years to come. What was the Middle East ready for democracy at that moment because the outcome of the uprisings chaos and bloodshed in Libya, Syria, which continues in Egypt empowered a religious political organization that is anything, but democratic in fact in many people viewed as religious fascist movement, the Muslim Brotherhood and the question is was Obama right to to to support that I don't think the the jury is still out to Ken's we put that question to so in a sense. He was wrong. To have couldn't see that coming any observer of the Middle East would tell you that at the time Obama may have done the right thing with hindsight. It was disastrous. When you look at the substance of pump speech today. What what do you think of the biggest differences between his message, and the one we had in two thousand nine I think is very obvious that he is focused on fighting Islamic astrology and containing Iran to be fair to Obama. Obama does mention spend some time actually talking about extremism and violent extremism in the name of Islam. He doesn't use the word Islamic extremists more Slavic terrorism because of the of the controversial nature that expression, but he does Twitter poll, Mattie speech, so that respect both sectors as Bombay's and Obama to have share that concern. But it's a question of emphasis. Compares each was much shorter. It was sort of head on from the very start. Let's be very Frank about. This is the problem with the region, radical Islamic ideology, violent Islamic extremism is something is a threat that concerns America and also consensus people of the Middle East, and he had some praise for those leaders in the Middle East of particular presidency, should Egypt who who said as much on our engage in fighting a piece militarily. So do you think I mean, people do you think people across the Mideast will listen to Pompeii saying Bama was too timid when it came to religious extremism? Yeah. Pompeii was right. We we agree with them Obama. Let us down. What will they be saying that some people definitely could be saying that and particularly that in the region here in Egypt. Would this is music today to the ears of the regime and many of its supporters? Like to see the words backed up by action. Whether it is financial support to military support that the Americans can give to governments or groups that are engaged in the fight. But I think over all people are still extremely skeptical and suspicious Americans intentions because still much of what American says and does seen through the prism of America's support unstinting support to the state of Israel. And when this comes into the picture, the white of public is extremely skeptical to what Americans says and does Magdi Abdelhadi a British Egyptian political commentator speaking with us from Cairo. Thanks as always. Thank you. President Obama's Cairo speech seems a long time ago now so does the Arab spring that followed a couple of years later at the time in two thousand eleven it looked like Egypt and a lot of the Arab world. We're on the verge of massive change right in the thick of it, Egyptian musician, Ronnie Esam..

In Russian court is it true and how would you, use this fact they're having a ball I. Guess I'll. Answer the first part of the question we've worked with Israel long and hard for many years. Many decades we've? Never never has anyone any country even closer than we are President Putin also is helping Israel and we both with. PB Netanyahu. And they would like to do certain things with respect to Syria Having to do with the safety. Of Israel so in that respect we absolutely would like to work, in order to help Israel and Israel will be working with us so both countries would work jointly And I think that when you look at the progress that's been made in certain. Sections with the ratification of ISIS Ninety percent ninety nine percent, there and other things that have taken place that we've done and frankly Russia has helped, us with in certain. Respects but I think they're working with Israel is a great thing and creating safety for Israel something that President Putin and I would like to see very much run a little thing I my add to that is the Helping people helping people you have such horrible And I've seen reports and I've seen pictures I've seen just about everything and if we can do something to help the people get back, into some form of shelter and humanitarian basis and that's, what the word was. Really a humanitarian base To think both of us would be very interested in, doing that and we are we will do thank you very much excuse.

"Issue of great concern to the united states and to the congress what the administration will do to push back on russia they don't see mr pompeo as really having led that charge so they have a lot of concerns about this and i think we'll wait to see what happens here we do need a state department that's revived i was glad to hear mr pompeo say that would be a big priority because quite frankly secretary tillerson completely devalued diplomacy to great at the state department in there there are many positions that are filled including the south korea just very briefly do you see a way to fix the iran nuclear deal which pompeo like president trump is a critic of and which you negotiated well i think that the message that president macron will bring to president trump this week but right the french president who very much supports the joint conference of plan of action is that we'll work together on regional issues to push back iran out of the middle east will worry with you and work to push back on ballistic missiles but the deal is deal and we can't change the terms of that deal it's important that iran not have nuclear weapons and so far nobody's heard about what the plan b is if the president leaves the deal former ambassador wendy sherman thanks very much all right tonight the trump white house is going to be hosting its first state dinner this dinner will honor french president emmanuel macron these dinners date back to the late eighteen hundreds and they are not just about fine china and glamorous gowns there also a part of american diplomacy as npr's tamra keith reports they also give first lady's a chance to make a statement fifteen months into the trump presidency this first state dinner will be a big moment for first lady melania trump who has kept a lower profile than many of her predecessors it's much more than just a dinner kate anderson brower is the author of first women the grayson power of america's modern first ladies laura bush said she wasn't nervous before her own wedding but she was nervous before the first date dinner with the mexican president i think it's a lot of pressure good evening for the first time since entering the white house in january president and mrs bush are hosting a state dinner.

"For me about mr pompeo were a lot of his statements and that's the past now and i think it's very important that if the president goes that the meeting between kim jong un and our president goes well and that there is an ability to put together some terms of an agreement that might exist the question is whether it lasts or not and of course the reputation of the north koreans has been that they don't necessarily keep their agreements the cia released some redacted memos involving gina hassles role in the cia torture program and she was the one who drafted memos that ultimately ordered the destruction of tapes of those enhanced interrogation this declassification said that she acted appropriately why is that judgment not enough for you i am of the opinion that putting somebody right now at the head of the cia who played a role and let's let's say torture is not necessarily appropriate i have met with general hospital i know her is somewhat i know that she is talented but i also know that she was fully supportive of the program that many of us are very critical of in this investigation by the cia said she personally acted appropriately it absolved her what do you need to learn about her for your vote to be a yes i have spoken to her about it so i know that she regrets it the point is that she was supportive of the program while it was going on and actually supervised one of the sites where some of this interrogation so called went on she's a number two position now that's different from number one the head of the cia worldwide there are countries that look very badly on what the united states did particularly european countries and we want whoever is head of the cia to be able to be acceptable to our allies so this is an open question in my mind we need to resolve it we have not yet had the hearings i generally do not make up my mind until after the hearing.
