The sense of urgency alive with china trying to urge the chinese to see the opportunity of being more ambitious about things like reducing coal things like changing the way that are financing whole around the world even as their greenhouse gas emissions at home just as a matter of mass not ideology the world cannot jet were the world needs to go on climate change if china does not increase its ambition. You mentioned john kerry's goal to leave politics out of climate talks but that's kind of hard. I mean for example. China has gotten a lot of heat for manufacturing solar products using forced labor and john. How do you keep out politics. I think it is helpful. Carry his seen in his own history. That have two sides. Lots to get to an outcome. They're pretty good at finding ways to cabin off other difficult issues and to focus on the matter at hand you know.

Butch couldn't be case before before they could see playing again so it's a to change. He says this is important because there are still a lot of cultural stigmas about people with disabilities in uganda. When you go down then your areas dip their communities when you find your family with this person they're quoted cost family mukasa says ugandan para athletes like runner david among and the fourteen year old swimmer. Who snuck who can dock. Way are making a difference and inspiring the next generation. The support disabled children gaba organization and come. Paula has been around since two thousand fifteen. It's helping more than forty young people. With various physical disabilities alvin wasswa has cerebral palsy. He and his friends put on a botched demonstration for me. Because you think you gotta director betty. Non kabira interprets for him. I d say that may be if he can get sports as and this pull them. They also go to or. She says they're really just getting started. Disabled athletes in uganda still need a lot more support for the world. I'm halima condie kampala. Japan's prime minister is leaving office. Having served for just over a year. Your shahida suge announced today that he will not stand for reelection. On september twenty-ninth that gives his political rivals just a few weeks to campaign to be successor. Gerald curtis has studied japanese politics for decades. He joins us now from western mass. Gerald curtis how surprised. Were you to hear. Prime minister subas announcement. I wasn't surprised. I wasn't sure it was that he was going to resign but actually published a piece for japanese. Think tank just three days ago which is said. It's quite possible that he's going to resign. Because the floor is falling out from under him. What caused the downfall of prime minister suge in terms of his popularity so the last thing caused the downfall was indeed the lack of popularity at. He realized he probably could not win reelection and if he did it would be bad for the party going into a major national election. So why was he so unpopular when he came in his popularity was quite high but as prime minister he soon showed one he could get his arms around how to deal with the couvert crisis so they would declare states of emergency. Didn't now five times. There was never a lockdown. They didn't produce their own vaccine. They were very slow to get vaccinations going then. He sort of barreled ahead with the olympics. Even though the public was opposed to holding the olympics and the end what cost him. His job is something that is not uniquely japanese. It's true for all democracies that our leader has to be able to communicate to the public. What he wants to accomplish how he's going to do it. What is vision is for the future mississauga. He has some skills but communicating is not one of them. How important is the prime minister's role in japan is really important if you want anything to change. The prime minister has to persuade public persuade. The politicians persuade the bureaucracy. Persuade everybody that this change is necessary and the fact that he couldn't communicate that he didn't really get across the public how he was going to make things better in the future than they are. Now where i've been in the past wealth they didn't like it and Popularity just kept on going down down down until he was down well his successor. Whoever that is have on their plate the main thing the challenge for the successor is to convince the japanese public that they know how to steer this ship of state. And someone who can operate on the world stage effectively and that was one of the problems he was very domestic oriented fellow never had a position that involve foreign affairs so the next prime minister has to be someone who the world finds interesting to talk with and who has something to say on climate change on afghanistan on how to deal with china and who's nitrous reading notes written by bureaucrats. Mister suto is doing but who actually has thought about these issues. You mentioned china and this change. In japanese leadership comes as china is trying aggressively to expand its economic and military power in the region and the us looks to japan as america's strongest ally in east asia. Well with the. Us need to do to keep this relationship on track. Well the us. Japan relationship is very strong and you can have prime minister's rise and fall. Come and go as they have been for the last half century and frankly it doesn't really affect the relationship so important for the us to have an alliance with japan you know. China is the great power in the region. Japan is is powerful country and it's the number three economy in the world but it's not great power like the united states so had to deal with china. That's gonna be the big issue in the new. Prime minister makes his pilgrimage to washington. Jerus- himself to president biden. I think the main thing on president binds mind is. How are we going to coordinate to deal effectively with china. Gerald curtis is the burgess professor emeritus of political science at columbia university. He's been talking to us about the impact of today's announcement that prime minister suge of japan is stepping down. Thank you okay thank you. You're listening to the world. I'm carol hills.

"Was not dancing with that clip but i but the lyrics aren't enforcing other english subtitles. On basically what they say is that they're asking zora tomas and joseph imaginary subjects to get out on both because there won't is really important for them something one of them says that even you know for me buying a cell phone. I have to wait and see who gets to the white house. Well i was definitely dancing sharon. That's so interesting. Get out the vote. Music very video in iran about the elections in the us. We'll get to why and how exactly be sanctions impact. The lives of people iran. In just a minute but first or hey will go to you. I want to get to you. Because you've been reporting on another country where the trump administration's approach has been similar to iran's maximum pressure. I'm talking of course about venezuela. Can you tell us what that maximum pressure campaign looks like within a sweater. Daisy and just a heads up. I'm sorry i don't have it amazing dancing video of course love to dance in latin america. But we don't I don't have that for your now. the maximum pressure campaign Just as like schramm was talking about a moment ago. It's very similar to what you're doing. Venezuela as it has done with iran the focus ultimately -est isolate venezuela economically and diplomatically and the objective. That the that the us ministration has had for a while. With president barack obama and now with our current president donald trump is to get a nicholas modo to step down from office and so the reason why that has been especially central for president trump as president and as a candidate is because there are many venezuelan in south florida. There are also a lot of cuban american voters in south florida. Who might be sympathetic. And so this is the there's actually trump has been campaigning in florida. There's also a disinformation campaigns in spanish in florida associated associating joe biden with socialism and communism and in fact there has also been campaigns targeting other latin voters of latin background during campaigns targeting voters of colombian american background which as a colombian american who is not from southern florida. I'm from. I'm from the dc suburbs. I was very surprised to hear about these ads. Their ads that are basically trying to put a joe biden In line up with a former presidential candidate columbia called gustavo. Petro who for colombian up politics is a left of center politician. Of course hodzic's every country is very different. But they're trying to put everybody in the scene camp. If you support joe biden you support gustavo. petro you support liberalism. You support socialism's us support you classmate so So this is a very interesting cross section of a situation in which Florida is a place. Where of course more so than in most states every single vote counts and even though People of latin america background makeup. It's estimate about seventeen percent of the electorate in florida. We've we've been reporting the you've been reporting of course my colleagues in reporting about this All year and so it's a place where domestic politics interest with with with foreign policy very. Interestingly we've we've definitely been hearing a lot about florida Sharon let's talk about what hor he's telling us regarding the impact of the us sanctions but in iran. Can you explain how exactly. Us policies are felt by regular iranians. Absolutely so the what the sanctions have meant is that we are not able to do any subtle banking with the outside world and there are a lot of iranian banks that have been sanctioned by the us but then also the us has all through its policy. What it has done is that it has made banks and sort of different companies and so on be very reluctant to do any business with iran because then they would risk getting fines heavy fines and so if you are in iran and you have business you to set up a bank account for example in canada or in.

iran south florida joe biden venezuela donald trump us florida zora tomas president Daisy latin america white house Petro barack obama gustavo schramm nicholas modo canada gustavo. petro
