Iran and Ukraine begin plane crash probe
"Start this hour with the series of events that have led to the accusations that Iran shot down a Ukrainian plane by mistake killing everyone on board a week ago today a US drone strike killed. Iran's top military commander Mander in Baghdad. Iran responded with its own missile strikes on basis in Iraq where American troops were stationed hours later that Ukrainian jet bound bound for Kiev crashed shortly after takeoff from Tehran. Iranian officials deny they shut down that jet although the US and Canada have publicly said they have evidence to the contrary for the latest on all of this in the crash investigation. We're joined by the BBC's Joanna Fisher in Kiev and Jona what are Ukrainian officials officials saying about this today. Well it's been very difficult. Actually to get comment out of Ukrainian officials. I think they are in a very difficult position here. They we have a team on the ground in Tehran. That was sent there in the immediate aftermath of this crash on Wednesday and they are trying to do everything they can to make sure that that team who are in Iran at the moment get access to the crash site and to the debris that has been collected. I think they are concerned. -cerned that if they immediately come out and echo what has been said In the United States and in Canada an in Great Britain very firmly pointing the finger at the Iranians blaming them for shooting down this plane that that will make it too difficult for for these investigators who are now inside drawn to do their job said they'd been walking something of a of a tight robe yes definitely a tight rope. in a very delicate situation more than sixty Canadians died in that crash crash reporters yesterday press Canadian. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on whether the United States was partly to blame because this was all created by the volatile atmosphere miss fear the US caused by killing General Qassam. Sulamani is there at the same sentiment in Ukraine about that. Look I think the overwhelming sentiment here in Ukraine is naught again because you have to cost mind back five years to m h seventeen. The Malaysian airlines that was shot down in eastern Ukraine crane. Shot down by a Russian missile almost certainly by Russian forces with the death of all nearly three hundred people on board and I think lots of people here their immediate reaction was surely. This couldn't have happened again and not to our country Has Horrible echoes for many many people about what happened then and the idea that Once again what appears to be happening on the ground in Iran is that they going out of their way to make it very very difficult for a proper investigation take base in that once again echoes. What has been the experience of the seventeen investigation that Russia has done almost everything cancer trying and make it very difficult? This has been a miserable flashback for many Ukrainians to what happened five years ago. We also shouldn't forget that this is a human tragedy how are the deaths of that. Those Eleven Ukrainians resonating there. There's been a memorial setup at the airport. Boris Bill Apple which is where the plane was due to arrive lots of passenger cruise Of other airlines have been going. They're paying their respects. The president has also been. They're extremely the extremely sad scenes around around the airport on Wednesday and on Thursday as well the voss majority of the actual passengers on the plane and they weren't going to End Up in Ukraine. They were transiting onto candidature about one hundred and forty also Of One hundred and seventy six people on board the plane we're going to fly on later that day Onto destinations in Canada. Basically this route Was One of the most efficient to one of the cheapest pissed ways for Iranian Canadian Air Iranians to get from Tehran to to various places in in Canada I wonder to to what thoughts there are about Ukraine again being in the middle of this huge news story because the country is also connected to impeachment here in the United States involved in a military conflict with Russia as well. There's a lot going on in the world that really affects Ukraine. Your thoughts on that. You have to say that Ukraine rain has found itself once again in extremely difficult geopolitical position. this is a country that history is not kind to and Ah once again it finds itself in an impossible position to be quite frank in the last twenty four hours or so Ukraine's friends in the West have not not been particularly helpful towards it. It seems almost that Ukraine was the last one to have access to this intelligence from from the United States pointing to it. Being a shoot down I think it's only in the last few hours. Actually the American embassy here in Kiev has come forward and given that information to the presidency. Here that's the BBC's Jonah Fisher. Kiev Jonah thank you so much. Thank you well. As tensions rose this week between Iran and the United States dates. Saudi Arabia was watching closely. The country is a US ally and a rival of Iran. Joining us. Now from Riyadh is Vivian. Near I'm WHO's a reporter with Bloomberg News Vivian. Welcome thank you would. How has this recent flare up between the US and Iran affected Saudi Arabia? Well something that a lot let people forget because Saudi Arabia of course has in the past taken a very hawkish tone toward Iran. Is that if we're we're actually going to break out. Saudi Arabia would be among the countries that would face potential retaliation could actually be severely hurt security-wise economy wise. So what we seen during this last flare up is Saudi officials really setting a message far and wide that we walked de-escalation. We do not want to see this turn into a military confrontation you know can wiser heads prevail. And let's think about the risks to the region because obviously if there were to be sort of a retaliatory attack to one of the Gulf countries or Saudi Arabia itself that would really heart Saudi Arabia and particularly at a time when they need things to be peaceful when they need things to be good for their economy because they're hosting the g twenty this year. They're trying to bring in foreign. Investors are trying to bring tourist wrist. This is not the time when you WANNA have a war right around the corner and it was just a few months ago that missile in drone strikes on Saudi oil facilities did a lot of damage to oil production there in Saudi Arabia. Arabia blamed Iran for that attack. Although Iran denied responsibility do you think that the Saudis were caught off guard by the killing of Sulamani by the United States. So it's an interesting question because there have been a couple of media reports suggesting that Saudi Arabia was not Informed or consulted ahead of time But I it doesn't seem surprising that perhaps this was a very quick attack. That Saudi Arabia was not informed about was caught off guard about about It's interesting that you mentioned the attack in September because Saudi Arabia actually so just stopped short of blaming Iran for that attack which was really interesting at the time I and a lot of people took that as a sign of Saudi Arabia trying to de-escalate and realizing we don't actually want more so they did go as far as to say Iraq had weapons were used in they even said the attack was launched from the north but I remember being at press conferences where we asked them was around behind this and they would not quite go there they would stop short of that. Okay and and in terms of the killing of Sulejmani were the Saudis happy about it do you think or do. They think that it was not good for them. Well there's been a real mixture of feelings because on the one hand so Damani is somebody who is widely viewed here as a war criminal in a state sponsored terrorist who had caused mayhem around the region through proxy wars supporting militias. So there was actually quite a lot of celebration in the Saudi media and from Saudi pundits and commentators but at the same time you did see simultaneous kind of concern and worry about the potential for that to escalate into a wider conflict. So you saw people saying we're glad so. They money's dead but let's be careful that this doesn't turn into a war you know. I was wondering as people were talking about General Suleimani and the fact that he was really The military commander for all of Iran's activities what effect His death will have on the war in Yemen which has been kind of a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. It's a bit too early early to say but we've already seen even before his death steps and effort toward ending Saudi Arabia's his involvement in the war in Yemen thought at this point. The war in Yemen has really devolved into this complex civil war. You know merged with famine and this horrible humanitarian catastrophe. So I don't think we can really talk about an end to the war in an easier way but you do see that. Saudi Arabia does seem to be moving towards trying to disengage and trying to kind of end their role in that conflict which seems to be part of a broader strategy to take a step back from some of the crises and conflicts that the kingdom has gotten involved in over the past couple of years. Does it appear to so you that because of the recent of flare up in tensions that maybe there is a chance right now for the longstanding rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia to kind of cool down for them to move toward a detente. That's a very good question and something that a lot of people are asking in the region right now now for two reasons first of all because there have been reports of some sort of talks perhaps going on between Saudi Arabia Iran whether those have been through intermediaries perhaps add Oscar Pakistan or whether they have been more kind of tier two unofficial think-tank level engagements has not really clear clear. But there has been a lot of chatter about our Saudi Arabia and Iran. Actually engaging in talks over the past few months prior to this killing and then the second question is whether the killing of Damani Johny ultimately could perhaps open up some space for Saudi Arabia add on to have some sort of talk because he was a large roadblock in the view of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries towards any kind of negotiated when the Ron because they viewed his role in these proxy wars and it Cetera. Something they just couldn't stomach and now he's gone. Vivian near I'm reporter for Bloomberg based in Riyadh Saudi Arabia. Thank you thank you so

A prominent journalist you often criticized Saudi authorities kashogi fled to the United States in two thousand seventeen at the start of a crackdown on journalists intellectuals and activists after being banned from writing in the media and posting on social networks. This is certainly not the first time a journalist has been punished in Saudi Arabia and the current crackdown.

However, what I have learned about Jamal through the words of his colleagues his family and through his own reflections is that he was a deeply thoughtful introspective and courageous man the Levin care that he had for his country shines through in the columns that he wrote for the Washington Post, he lamented the injustices in repression, he saw in Saudi Arabia and urine for democracy and freedom for his community. He raised his voice to criticize the Saudi government's of the media. And of those who fought for human rights and democracy in Saudi Arabia. Fairness he paid with his life.
