Trump demands restoration of UN sanctions against Iran.

"Today the United States is demanding that all United Nations sanctions be reimposed against Iran a move that follows America's embarrassing failure to extend an arms embargo against. Iran. The administration's insistence on snapping back into national sanctions against Iran sets the stage for a contentious dispute. It's possible that the US Cole will be ignored by other UN members an outcome that could call into question the UN. Security. Council's ability to enforce its own legally binding decisions. The trump administration wants to reimpose all international sanctions that had been eased under the deal of the nation's claimed. The US has no standing to make the demand because the trump administration pulled the US out of the Iran nuclear deal two years ago, Mike, Pompeo, and Donald Trump of made no secret of their intention to invoke the rare and controversial diplomatic move in the wake of the administration's defeat at the United Nations last week on. Extending the arms, embargo Russia and China bitterly oppose reimposing sanctions on Iran. So to other Security Council members including US allies, Britain and France. A dispute that could result in a battle over the legitimacy of the UN's most powerful body. What the administration's position does not account for is a scenario in which the rest of the world simply ignores the United States on the grounds that it no longer has legal standing to invoke snap back. Other countries may also hedge their bets pending the outcome of the November third presidential election believing that Democratic nominee Joe Biden would reverse trump's decision. Should the president fail to win a second time?

Election 2020: Biden's VP Pick

"There's plenty of general reporting out there about each of the possible women who Joe Biden might pick to be his vice president. We're here now to understand the Jewish angle for each of these impressive women to learn what American Jews should know about each of these candidates that might make them more supportive or concerned. So we're going to go one by one and get the Jewish angle from our guest Jacob Corn Blue, the national politics reporter for Jewish insider. Jacob. Thank you for joining us to be back. Let's start with Comma Harris a former candidate for the Democratic nomination a popular senator from California the State with the second largest Jewish population in the country. What's the Jewish angle on Senator Harris? First of all, she married to a Zionist of that Iraqi gets her a Jewish scientist. Yes. So that gives an upper hand in this Jewish of IPE stakes I think that Kamala Harris gives a lot. She adds up to the ticket number one just because she was a popular candidate and people. So her at the start as a rising star and somebody who can really take this to the very end unfortunately it for ourselves she didn't win the primaries should take on. Joe. Biden pretty early which gave. That rise in the polls in the only of twenty twenty. I will say that Biden. Biden comes to see who is preferred choice for Veep Kamala Harris has a big name recognition. Is Obviously arised star and her background, a label as being a black woman from California. But was so high tides in the Senate and in the Jewish community. So the pros are out. The cons are that I'm not sure Biden Israeli looking for someone on the ticket would potentially overshadow him not because Harris Donald understand that if she's on the ticket, she's number two and she's there to serve the presidential nominee and possibly the president. But Because Camera Harris ran on the same slop because she is a bishop you know she can overshadow him in media appearances and potentially as vice president of being a little more independent and vocal than let's say, Dick Cheney and pence on camera beyond the you know the happy coincidence of the Jewish husband is there anything in particular that Jews should know about Senator Harris is policy stances? What has she? Done on issues Anti Semitism, what has she done on supporting Israel, other issues of concern to the Jewish community I guess close ties with APEC obviously. She's spoken at several APEC conferences but she also appealed to the mainstream of the Democratic Party She's not seen as a controversial figure amongst progressives say as someone who is too pro Israel for them she will reflect the same policies that Biden Obama and. Anybody, else running a Democratic Party other than on the an Warren's she would you know align herself with the second policy views? So I don't think she's outstanding. She's not too long in the Senate to look back at a record by think, she has a strong provisions record and she is aligned itself with the mainstream of the Democratic Party next, let's talk about political MIA fights, Susan, rice, Susan Rice served. As US ambassador to the UN in President Obama's first term and his national security adviser in his second going even further back in time actually I think I think she was the youngest ever assistant secretary of State She was you know thirty three or something like that when President Clinton in Nineteen Ninety eight made her the system secretary of State for Africa what did you need to know about Susan? Rice. Well Susan Rice first of all is A. Mixed emotions about Susan, Rice obviously, she has good ties with prominence numbers of the Jewish community and she has a record serving as national security adviser and embassador to the UN on their Obama Democrats SAPORTA. Mostly Obama's policy when it comes to how other than the last UN Security Council. Two, three, three, four, a resolution, and just mind our listeners about two three four why that was controversial. The only time when Obama. ABSTAINED ON APRIL then. All on settlements that you know really couldn't dent on Obama's record when it comes to a majority of American Jews talking about Republican Jews, all those. In Israel who soul Obama as being the more salt when it comes to the Palestinian issue. But Susan Rice obviously had a this overlap from being a national security adviser and the to the UN. Obviously, she was a controversial figure on this front. She was criticized by Dennis. Ross by the full hug combative style. When came to the Palestinian issue on the other hand, she has very strong ties with somebody like a Fox who is very vocal in his pro Israel stats

Why can’t Egypt and Ethiopia agree on the Nile dam?

Monocle 24: The Globalist

Why can’t Egypt and Ethiopia agree on the Nile dam?

"Now. A reservoir behind a controversial dam built along the River Nile in Ethiopia has started to fill with water. If you open officials say, this is a natural part of the construction process, but neighboring sedan says it's noticed water levels on the blue. Nile have started to drop fast well. The damp has been a source of. Of huge disagreement among Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt the latest round of talks on ensuring all three nations will get enough. Water fell apart on Tuesday well to tell us more I'm joined once again by the Janice Ruth Michelson she's covered this story extensively. Welcome back to monocle twenty four ruth at good to have you on the globalist, and there are satellite images of this reservoir. Tell us what they show. So the satellite images that came out this week show water gathering behind the dam as he said exactly I suppose as it would do if the dam. Were functioning and. Has Said well festival it said during all of the negotiations that have happened that it would fill the damn irregardless of the the outcome of the negotiations and it's also said that some of the the the exact words that the Ethiopian water minister used were the construction of the dam and the filling of the water. Go Hand in hand, so there's some kind of technical process I. Am not an engineer so I'm about to probably explain this badly. But there is a technical process that involves filling part of the water attesting to if the turbines, which is what Ethiopia wanted to begin now and so, what's happened this week is that it's unclear whether that process has actually begun and Ethiopia, simply doesn't doesn't want to say clearly whether this is just natural, build up due to the rain, and of course the satellite pictures will show us the water, but they won't show us. Why and the Sudanese have said that they have noticed that in. In effect is a direct consequence of the filling up of the dam. In Ethiopia, they are seeing less water. Were they'll? Absolutely, so one of the things that we're told about the dam is that. In in the woods, peons regulate the flow of the blue, Nile, which flows from. Hills where rainwater gathers in Ethiopia through Sudan. And up into Egypt and it's true that the Blue Nile does flood and so you know there is some There's some justification there for wanting to to regulate that flow, but it same time one of the things that's going to constrain this entire discussion in the functioning of the dam. Future is drought because that is caused by climate, change and climate change has been exacerbating and lengthening these periods of drought, so there are still floods, but there's longer and more frequent droughts, and so you know I, I actually visited Sudan and I went to Stand on. On the banks of the Blue Nile and talk to some farmers in January and even in the middle of winter, the water levels were already quite depleted. Obviously, this was something. That's extremely alarming. to people who who subsist on the water supply. There so this idea that this this damn is going to to regulate a problem is really only half of the understanding of the functioning of the Blue Nile. And how much are the other countries involved in particular Ethiopia, because it is damn. How much are they mindful of this secondary impact that people in Sedona being a feeling? What Ethiopia has said is that the dam will produce. Excess hydropower once it's once it started and they will sell Sudan a cheap electricity or that they will sit on electricite. Excuse me. So some important context about this is that about seventy percent of the population of Ethiopia live without electricity, so Ethiopia has said that this dam is is essential to the development of their country that they need the electricity that will come from it to function in terms of how this will affect Sudan. There are. Former Sudanese negotiators that I've spoken to who were one in particular. Who quit the Sudanese? Delegation because as soon as negotiations started in two thousand and ten Ethiopia said no matter what we're going to build the dam. And so this particular negotiator said well. What's the point in having a negotiation? Then what are we negotiating over and when he looked at the text? Describing how much electricity Sudan was supposed to get, he said well I. Just don't think this is ever going to happen. I don't think there will be this excess hydropower that you claim. Tell us a little bit more about other countries involved Egypt is closely affected by this. It's to its livelihood dependent on the Nile. And they have started to, I mean they have been integral to all the pushbacks and all the talk, so the in for the entire time. How have they reacted to this filling of the damage? So Egypt has come to view the damn. Stench Threat and there is some justification there because it will deplete the flow. Of the Nile water and the according to Egypt anaylyst. percent of its total water supply and so. They're just you know. This is a country that is struggling to react to the idea that it would have less water for for one hundred million people and so you know part of Egypt's reaction so far. We've seen I wouldn't say it was a confused reaction, but it was a reaction with questions, so the only statement we've seen was the spokesman for Egypt's ministry foreign affairs, saying that he requests urgent official clarification from the Ethiopians about whether they've actually gone to fill the dam and saying that they're following developments on this issue, but at the same time you know they've They've talked about how cutting off Egypt's water supply is a red line There's been. A lot of efforts by Egypt to try and find some external. That will You know help help their case. They took the issue to the UN Security Council at the end of June and the UN Security Council basically told the three countries that they needed to resolve this dispute between themselves. But this is an issue where in the past Egyptian. People in the government back in two thousand and ten have even discussed bombing the damn. There isn't necessarily a suggestion that they're thinking of doing that now, but this is the kind. It's a problem of that level that has been discussed even using violence, which you some idea of just how important this is to the Egyptians

Kishore Mahbubani says COVID-19 won't stop China's rise

"These days for China there's been an economic slowdown a trade and technology war with America. One of the few issues of bipartisanship in today's Washington then there have been protests in Hong Kong global criticism of Beijing's treatment of the Muslim minorities not to mention Western anxiety about the role of Y in those five G. networks and don't forget the allegations of Chinese interference in sovereign states across the region. Add to this. The outbreak of corona virus or covered nineteen and silently some pundits and they mainly in the West. They're asking whether we're witnessing communist China's Chernobyl moment what do you think well one distinguished intellectual who profoundly disagrees with all this skepticism. He's my guest today. Kishore Mahbubani is distinguished fellow. The Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore a former ambassador to the UN twice and a former foreign secretary of Singapore case. Your has risen several influential books on Asia and the rise of China the lightest one is called has China won the Chinese challenge to American Promessi as published by public phase in New York Keisha. Welcome back between the lines. My pleasure there'd be back now you've heard all these. These dial warnings about China and as I say they mainly come from listeners. What do you disagree well? I think it's absolutely certain that the return of China to his place as the number one economy in the world cannot be stopped because from the year one to the eighteen twenty or eighteen hundred of the last two thousand years the two largest economies of the world were always those of China and India so the past two hundred years of Western domination award. History have been an aberration. All aberrations come to a natural end and China's return cannot be stopped. And that's absolutely set. You say in your book that if Xi Jingping does not put in place San Succession mechanisms. America could win this geopolitical contest and bear in mind just a couple years ago. She overturned legislation on. Term Limits for presidents essentially might himself later for life. Some of these critics say that. How does that promote good governance for China and a sound succession mechanism? That will allow China to Rosza Unabated well I would say that the history of China has taught them when they have strong central government. The people benefit a lot. When this week government they suffer a lot and you look at a hundred years of humiliation. That China's suffered from the first opium war of Eighteen. Forty two right until the establishment of the People's Republic of China in nineteen forty nine. The main reason why they went through one hundred years of humiliation was because they had weak central government so what Xi Jinping has given to China is once again very strong central government this is an asset for China. I think he's going to be around as Vita for a long time. And as long as he's around. I think China will do very well. Okay will you say that this geopolitical contest that's broken out between America and China? That will continue marathon. Rice does that mean that Beijing and Washington a doomed to confrontation. Well the the reason why. I'm producing my book now. Has China one his precisely because I want to avoid a confrontation in my. I think it's absolutely unnecessary for the United States and China to get entangled in this confrontation because at the end of the day the primary goal of the United States government is to improve the wellbeing of the American people than the best way to improve the well being of the American people especially in this call. The crisis is to work with China and not work against China but of course unfortunately the United States has other goal and is the primary goal of the United States is to maintain primacy in the global order. Then that will lead to confront To leading American proponents of containing China. John Shaw. The University of Chicago Have Stephen. Walt whom you quoted approvingly in your book about the perils of American Hubris and exceptionalism but on China I disagree. They say I've been guests on this program and I've made this point Measham and casual. They say that a rising China does indeed threaten the regional status quo and Washington moreover will and should go to great lengths to ensure that China does not dominate the Asia. Pacific your response. Well I think the question is whether or not they can both live with each other In the region if if the United States by the way you know all the countries in this region many of them one the United States will remain strong player in this region. I think it'd be good for the region to have United States. Remain as strong Leah. By United States can remain a strong player without on fronting China. He can remain a strong player by working with China In in in many critical areas. And frankly if you ask the countries in the region What they would like to see they would like to see a strong China and they would like to see a strong United States. But they don't want to be forced to choose within China and the United States and we'll get to this question about choosing later on in the show but I want to stick with America. There is a consensus in the region. That America should stay but Foreign Affairs magazine. This is the Distinguished New York Journal to Achieve. Contributed this month. It faces a range of top. Foreign Policy Thinkers. They're all weighing on whether or not the. Us is in the process of global retrenchment The cover of Australia's leading Foreign Affairs Journal. This month is is called can trust America So Am I right in saying you? Don't think American showing any signs of withdrawing from Asia. Now I see no signs at all America retreating from the region and And I think that very strong as you know policy in America is to some extent made by the president but is also made by the deep state and the deep state has a very strong consensus that they got to remain very strongly Industry region. So I don't see an American of withdraw anytime in the near future but I do I do argue that the United States has got to behave differently. With China net once had One tenth the size of China's of America's GNP retailers but today China's be GNP BB. Dems is bigger than the United States. So you behave differently. Was this animal. What about that? Animals DASA more assertive. Now in your book and you listening to Katia Mahbubani. We're chatting about his new book. Has China one in your new book as show you dedicate a chapter to the question is China expansionist and you say basically China wants to respect global rules and norms but let's face it. It has ignored the ruling from the UN's Permanent Court of Arbitration. That was at The Hague in two thousand sixteen. The high concluded for those of you listening who've forgotten about this this is four years ago. Chana's conduct around the Scarborough Shoal and the Spratly islands it was illegal and let's remember Beijing has continued to build up a military prisons on artificial Alan's at drive out local fishermen and in the last few months case. Short Sean has been bullying Indonesia over the Natuna islands. How is all this respecting global order? Well you know one point. I emphasize said there were people talk of benevolent. Great Powers Turn Benevolent Grid. Power is an oxymoron. So as you know the United States today has not ratified the law. The Sea Convention. So in in some areas as China emerged behaving exactly the United States. The United States would never accept going to a tribunal to judge whether or not the United States valid or invalid claiming any area in that respect. China is behaving like the United States by just as the United States. Most of the time respects most international rules and conventions China. Also most of the time respects most of international rules in confections in many ways. China's behavior and America's behaviour is very similar in the international arena. Your critics would say that. China's maritime climbs a contested by the Philippines Malaysia Brunei Indonesia Vietnam Beijing has antagonized nations log New Zealand Australia with cyber attacks and and political interference. Nightside casual these. Not Diplomatic Wins for president. She hasn't he made some big mistakes. Well I it's it's it's interesting. It's always the rest. That is screaming very loud on this South China Sea When was the last time you heard a very strong statement from militia All of all of Philippines On the South China Sea. Why you're seeing behind. What is happening behind the scenes is a lot of diplomacy that is not reported in the Western media. Now I cannot comment on the side of the tax on Shelia and New Zealand but I I believe it was Edward Snowden revealed to us that if you live in today's world you can assume that anything you put up. There is being monitored completely by the National Security Agency of the United States. So I think what the world needs is new conventions in the cyber area and the world should work together do agree on some set of rules for what you can or cannot do in terms of cyber hacking spoke with the New Zealand professor. Anne Marie Bridie last week on this program and she told us about three investigations into Chinese interference in politics that a currently underway in New Zealand. But we WANNA go there now and finished your point. I was quite struck by a law in in your book. He sure well. You talked about the Chinese reluctance to conquer Australia quote. Future historians will marvel at the fact that even though Australia is geographically close to China. It was physically. It was physically occupied in conquered by far more distant British forces absolutely true. I mean if China was an expansionist power wrenching. Her travel all the way to Africa. He could have easily gone to Australia. Additional Australia. Remarkable accident of history. That Australia was colonized by British forces than not Chinese. I mean future. Historians will marvel. The anomaly visits Tom Switzer. On our in 'em I guess is Keisha Mahbubani the former foreign secretary of Singapore and President of the UN Security Council. He's now a distinguished fellow at the National University of Singapore. We're talking about his new book. Has China one now for some of Iran's listeners in Venice Matas whether your overstating China's rise and I WANNA put to you this very rule weakness in limitation surely because many analysts They argue that there's a ticking bomb in China it's low birthright and the aging population and this is the argument that will reduce the workforce and could potentially break social security system. How would you respond to those critics? Oh that's absolutely no question. That China faces a lot of serious Internal Challenges. Because you know it is to instill a developing country It's CABBIE DYING IF I get it right. It's still about ten thousand dollars. One-sixth debt of the United States has a long way to go before it becomes fully developed country. And that's precisely why China wants to focus on its internal development and not get dragged into an all-out geopolitical contests with the United States. So you notice that China wherever possible is trying to avoid getting entangled with the United States even though the United States clearly is challenging the United States challenging the United States charging China In many

"The international court of justice heard a case brought by the African country of Gambia on behalf of an organization of Muslim majority countries that accuses Myanmar of committing genocide and let's turn to reporter Michael Sullivan who's been following the story for some time he joins us from Thailand hi Michael David so can you explain this court decision in the Hague to us and and what it means well first of all I think we need to make clear that this is in no way a final decision on the allegations of genocide that could take years but this was about provisional measures requested by Gambia basically a restraining order compelling me on Martin not to abuse the roving to remain in the on Mars were kind state and the court granted several of those measures today and said that the real hang out in the end mark are still in danger and should be a protected group so these measures will apply in theory to the couple hundred thousand Rohingya denied the most basic freedoms including freedom of movement many living what amounts to detention camps and also compelled Myanmar to preserve evidence of any alleged crimes committed during the two thousand seventeen accidents including rape murder and torture measures don't really help the roughly seven hundred and forty thousand row and go who fled the brutal Myanmar military crackdown in twenty seventeen and are now living in camps in Bangladesh and probably will be for quite sometime so this this ruling today comes just over a month after Myanmar's defective leader uncensored she went personally to the Hague to to defend our country and its actions I mean did did did that just not have any impact on on the court as they thought about what they believe is happening here it didn't seem to I mean she went and in fact I asked them to drop the case claiming that no genocide or genocidal acts had taken place she did admit that in her words a disproportionate military force may have been used against the roving bands of billions killed which basically said our government was investigating these claims and ask the court to allow that process to play out and in fact earlier this week the Myanmar government panel appointed to look into such allegations basically came to the same conclusion probable war crimes committed by the military but no genocide well I mean is name are likely to go further and comply with whatever provisional measures this court is is calling for given that Myanmar has his stone walled in the past when it's come to this yeah a good question I mean ended knowledge is the authority of the court and therefore is obliged to cooperate and the time frame is four months to comply if that doesn't happen the matter could be sent to the UN security council for further action but Myanmar has a friend there China which would probably block any effort to make Myanmar comply even if it wasn't satisfying the terms of the provisional measures that would so taking all this together I means is today's ruling just mostly symbolic or or is there more to it I think it's a little of both I mean you have to remember the international criminal court is also looking hard at several senior members of Myanmar's military for their role in what happened in twenty seventeen now you've got this case with the international court of justice in this proceeding and measures are being taken to address the plight of their hang up so that's progress yeah reporter Michael Sullivan thanks so much Michael

Trump Hopes To Create New Deal With Iran

"Now the immediate threat of conflict between the US and Iran may have receded at least for now but questions remain about future relations between the two and the day with other major powers in particular what happens now to the Iran nuclear deal J. C. P. our way to give it its official name the US is already pulled out and it's using the latest crisis to press other signatories to follow suit his what president trump said on Wednesday Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and and its support for terrorism the time has come for the United Kingdom Germany France Russia and China to recognize this reality they must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal or J. C. P. away and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place European Union as a whole is a signature answers fronts in the U. K. as permanent members of the UN security council and also Germany so will they now withdrawal and will kill for the deal Cornelius at a bar is no resident fellow at Carnegie Europe a think tank he's an expert based in Berlin on European foreign policy well certainly it's not a better time now than at previous moments we've just seen a major confrontation between Iran and the United States being averted with the focus shifted clearly on the rock and the security situation in the region the United States the US president called on European allies again to bend the deal but he still has made and viable alternative proposals what you would like to do he speaks of a better deal but he hasn't produced it and we can see that the Iranian reaction had been carefully calibrated to not violate the deal any further so the Europeans have said that they would stick to it and lack of alternatives they are right to do so yeah this is a really important question I mean is in your opinion is there a different deal to be done I mean a better deal I guess is what president trump's always talked about but what what an alternative look like well that's the question that the Europeans have been asking to the Americans without getting a clear response because of the current deal I mean basically it's a reduction off you run a nuclear activity in exchange for trade very circumscribed controls are in place for the international atomic energy agency and there is nothing compared to all that the United States has proposed instead they have embarked on a policy which they called maximum pressure but which has I'm clear aims is this about a better deal on specified as it is is it about pushing back against Iran in the region or is about about regime change all together and not only the goals are unclear but some of these goals are not compatible with the European goals in the region so that's why the Europeans have been reluctant to follow suit given what happened there in the in the past week and this of a slow erosion tell elements of the deal over the last few months isn't it time the the country recognize that the deal in its current state isn't working and and if he's not dead yet it's close to dying well people say that it's on life support and certainly that is the case but the question is again a why would you switch off the machine's keeping it on life support if you have not sinned alternatives so for the Europeans having the deal it is still valuable in the sense that there are heightened I eighty eight controls inspections going on in Ron Ron hasn't stepped out of the deal entirely it hasn't kicked out the inspectors I'm so the world community still has eyes on the Iran nuclear programs and it wouldn't have done that they said that the deal is dead now then the alternative would be relentless pressure military intervention and the continuation of the Escola Taurus file that we've seen over the past days and weeks do you think Iran will now start abandoning some of its commitments particularly on uranium and Richmond well truth be told it Iran has reduced its commitment but gradually so they insist that this is well within the deal it in their own reading the Europeans don't share this reading but they see themselves acting within the deal and they say the steps are reversible the problem is that the Europeans cannot offer at the trade that was promised to Iran in exchange for limiting its nuclear program so in that sense the Europeans should work on this they should try to establish the trade channels they could talk to the United States about you and Terry in trade something that the United States even allows but which is has become impossible due to banking sections they should talk with Russia and China the other parties of the deal on how to save this and how to make it work ultimately that's part of what the homework of the Europeans should be doing now the trouble is that there's not much in it for Iran is that you know that that that keeping the deal caring just about and yet they just lost that senior military commander and then they're not getting much relief from sanctions well I would say the precise this tells us that there is something in the deal for the Iranians because otherwise they could have done to it many people would have understood that in response to the killing off of the general they could have left the deal altogether but they also know that this would provoke a major reaction not only from the United States a possible so from the Europeans Israel among others because then we'd be back in a situation that we were at the beginning of the last decade sweat military intervention was frightened to Iran if it didn't come clean on its nuclear program so avoiding the situation is still part of the calculation of the Europeans while sticking to the Iran deal and that was Cornelius at

Trump Reverses U.S. Position on Israeli Settlements in West Bank

PRI's The World

05:33 min | 1 year ago

Trump Reverses U.S. Position on Israeli Settlements in West Bank

"The trump administration is up ended four decades of US foreign policy in the Middle East Secretary State. Mike Pompeo said yesterday that Israeli settlements are no longer violation of international law. Roughly seven hundred hundred thousand Israelis live in settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Land that is also claimed by Palestinians. Israeli leaders welcomed the trump administration's decision and Palestinians as well as nations across the world warned that the move undermines hope for a broader peace deal joining us from Tel Aviv. Is Dan Shapiro. The former. US ambassador entertain Israel under President Obama ambassador. What makes his shift in policy so important? The truth is is that it's more symbolic than actual every every administration since the Carter Administration voiced their opposition to Israeli settlement construction the West Bank without making reference to the legal question on policy grounds. What's what's important about it? However is that it seems to give green light? And that's quite different from any previous administration to significant expansion of Israeli settlement and at a time when and advocates for Israeli settlement expansion are also talking about unilateral annexation of the West Bank or portions of the West Bank. Clearly those steps would make it much much harder to ever achieve a two-state solution and since president trump has never endorsed a two-state solution. It appears to be a continuation of an effort essentially to move us away from that track and kill off that option. What reaction have you heard about this announcement in Israel and the occupied territories for many Israelis? They are appreciative of of it because at least some Israeli settlements are not particularly controversial. There consensus points in Israel. The ones that are larger and closer to the pre nineteen sixty seven. Evan borders and which most peace plans have envisioned Israel retaining a kind of a land swap but overall it's consistent with the Israeli view that settlements are not illegal under international law And so it's been received positively by both the prime minister and the leader of the opposite. And what about Palestinians. What what what about opinion in the West Bank Palestinians Certainly strongly oppose any settlement construction. They always have. They weren't thrilled with the policy of previous administrations. Either either that didn't focus on the illegal question And also didn't necessarily succeed in stopping Israeli settlement but I think they view this decision by the trump administration shen as the latest in a series of blows to the administration's ability to serve as any kind of mediator in the final days of the Obama Administration under which you served as ambassador answers Israel The US allowed the UN Security Council to pass a resolution declaring the settlements a flagrant violation of international law. If that was the feeling feeling of the Obama White House why wait until the final days of eight years of making policy to ratchet things up and that was an abstention on a resolution that the Obama Administration did not draft but came at a time when there were settlement expansions Happening every previous administration also found itself in a situation in which Security Council resolutions came before them which included language which was not identical to US policy but which ultimately abstained on and allowed to To pass because the United States has been quite isolated on this question about illegality of Israeli settlements of reasonably the rest of the world. Well Jared Kushner's peace plan it turns out to be a little more than a flashy economic program with no clear road map to peace there. Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital the relocation of the US embassy a to Jerusalem and the closure of the Palestinian diplomatic office in Washington and The declaration that the Golan Heights Israeli sovereign territory when you stack all this up up. What is US policy in the Mideast? you know the administration has Held out the prospect of plan that would lay out their policy for now on nearly three years That plans never been presented. And it's not clear at ever will be presented but every indication is that the trump administration's view of the end state of that. It hopes to see in this part of the world is Isreaeli annexation of a wide swaths of the West Bank in where settlements exist and even beyond those areas and around that isolated islands of a limited Palestinian autonomy. Are you describing a one state solution. And it's not a solution It's probably a one St outcome where we might call a binational state outcome. It also is not very sustainable in my judgment and it won't be the policy of successor administration perhaps as early as fourteen months from now if if a Democratic president takes office so elaborate on on that where do you see hope for a two state solution still it would take tremendous leadership from Israeli and Palestinians and with American support from Arab leaders to first of all convince very disillusioned public's that it's even possible. None of this possible in the current leadership constellation in fact I think a realistic policy of the next administration if it's Wants to restore the two state. Solution is the center to the American is not to say we want to achieve a two-state solution. But rather we want to find ways to stabilize it and keep it alive for later at the moment two-state solution certainly not in the cards. That risk is that it goes over the cliff and is not achievable even later when a different and boulder leadership is in place Dan Shapiro the former. US Ambassador to Israel under President Obama. Thanks very much for your thoughts. My pleasure thank thank you.

"There's a couple of risks. You know one. I just wanna ask you before we get to the kind of younger progressive movement and be which I think it's important for us to talk about, you know, Dan, I myself, I wouldn't take that between having you here to to to say, how strange it is to me that you know, I've taken positions. So now they're on deal. But I had to be the public voice of the abstention on the UN Security Council resolution for those who don't know at the end of the bomb. Ministration we abstained on the resolution that essentially condemned Israeli expansion Israeli settlements. It also addressed Palestinian incitement, but the blowback on this was extreme. And you know, I was called everything in the book and chiefly called an anti Semite. And and I felt you know, it was almost like, you know, a target of cyberbullying. You know, I felt like I had a parade of of kind of pro to now who pro Trump people just just trying to grind my reputation down and turn me into some. Anti anti-israel anti Semite figure. And I wonder what you think is there a risk of that. I mean that this kind of scorched earth approach to people with with different views doesn't that risk over time, creating these fishers, you know, where you have people in the Democratic Party who just support a two-state solution. And if you're going to tar someone as anti Israel anti Semite, just because you occasionally take positions at differ from the government. What does that do over time to the the bonds that you know, the have to exist in both parties? So again, this is really where President Obama was coming from at the time of the species in the Iran deal. He said, look this relationship has to be able to be sustained through changes of government and changes of administration and party on both countries. And that's historically been the case. And there have historically been strong democratic and Republican administrations, and and majorities in congress and Lee Lee, cooed and labor led governments in Israel that. At kept the foundations of the of the relationship moving forward. If you get a kind of single party identification from one country to the other when the pendulum inevitably swings. And we know it does in American politics is really politics is a different story. Maybe but get started to swing just this past November people will come in. And you know, they may remember that they were treated as if their views, which are not anti-israel there may disagree with certain Israeli policies. But we're we're not welcomed. So I I think it's wise to maintain that sense of proportion. I think it's wise for these really government to sustain a close ties with Democrats out of power, of course, now with the new majority coming into the house and to understand there's such thing as being a supportive critic or a critical order, and that's, you know, the views of people criticize Israel settlement expansion. And of course, that shouldn't be done in isolation. You've got to take account for Palestinian responsibility as well. But those are shared by many many Israelis. The Iran deal may not have been popular with Israel. But there were in Israel. But there were a lot of Israelis, including a lot of Israeli security experts who understood the value of it, or at least didn't wanna see cancelled once it was in place. So these are not views that should be treated as a classified anyway as on anti Israel, but they are views that should be given the legitimacy of being part of a camp of supporters of Israel security legitimacy the US Israel relationship and the effort to try to end the conflict with the Palestinians..

"For the third time this past week and made progress we're continuing to make progress. These are all the right steps forward. It's the right path. And we've made clear to the world that the economic sanctions the pressure that discussed chairman Kim to come as far as he has come to date will remain in effect until denuclearize occurs. And so we're hard at at President Trump has given me the task to use our entire diplomatic team to achieve the outcome. That the world has demanded. Three UN Security Council resolutions, we'll talk a lot about that in the week ahead in New York. But again, you talked about denuclearization. They haven't given up a single nuclear weapon were missile or an inventory. And now they're talking in the meeting the summit with South Korean president moon. They talked about quote corresponding measures such as a treaty to end the Korean war one is that on the table. And to whatever happened to the position of the administration that North Korea has to get rid of all of its arsenal. Before we give any concessions administration's position hasn't changed one jot from the time we entered this discussion, we are working diligently, not many of the outcomes that you described we've had extended conversations about this. I don't want to get into the details of the negotiations that are underway, but we've talked about particular facilities particular weapon systems. Those conversations are underway. And we are hopeful that we can deliver this outcome for the world. But to get to this point about corresponding measures. As you say that position hasn't changed. One bit does that mean they have to get rid of their entire nuclear arsenal. And missiles before we take we give concessions, for instance, a peace treaty, but everybody's got their own concession might be some thought it was a concession for President Trump to go to Singapore. I certainly didn't think so President Trump doesn't but what we've made clear is the economic sanctions the driving force to achieve the outcome. We're looking for will not be released. The UN Security Council will not reduce those sanctions until such time. As we've achieved that final denuclearization. We want to pick up on that. Because the South Koreans are already talking about Luoyang economic relations with South Korea the Russians and the Chinese are looking the other way apparently rampant smuggling of oil fuel into South Korea isn't the US policy of maximum pressure on North Korea. Isn't that releasing? It's absolutely not. I mean, it just I hear I've read what you should you should be very careful about everything. Read in the press around the world, the entire UN Security Council remains committed to enforcing the UN Security Council resolutions, I am confident we will renew that. And renewed the commitments to the week ahead. It's one of the things we'll talk a great deal about two to a country. Every nation has told me personally, they remained committed to enforcing the UN Security Council resolution, let's turn to China where we are on the verge of a major trade war. The US has imposed sanctions or tariffs on two hundred and fifty billion dollars of Chinese imports. The Chinese have retaliated they have just announced they're pulling out of a new round of trade talks this week. How hard is President Trump prepared to go in this face off with China? And for how long we know this much the trade war on by China against the United States has been going on for years. Here's what's different in this administration to the extent one wants to call us, a trade war. We're determined to win it. You know? I I read a small business in Kansas before I came to congress. I saw how companies were treated differently when they attempted to do business whether they were trying to sell goods into China or to purchase goods to export from China. I watched American companies were treated unfairly differently. A different set of rules. If they wanted to invest in my business against us. They could've at I wanted to invest in a Chinese supplier there. I couldn't these are fundamentally unfair the American people know that President Trump's gonna fix it. When you say, he's you're gonna win it. We're gonna win it as long as we're gonna win. We're going to get an outcome which forces China to behave in a way that if you want to be a power a global power transparency rule of law. You don't steal intellectual property the fundamental principles of trade around the world fairness reciprocity. Those are the things President Trump has told his counterpart there who he very much likes. Those are the things that the American people are demanding and the American workers deserve plus an and Trump announced this week. That he's reducing the number of refugees that will be allowed into this country from forty five thousand this year to thirty thousand next year, which would be the lowest cap since the refugee program began in nineteen eighty nine I'll take for instance, Syria. There are five million Syrian refugees now in the Middle East. The US has allowed only sixty Syrian refugees into this country this fiscal year, which ends next week is that this administration's idea of compassion. Chris this country has been the most generous nation in all of recorded civilization with respect to taking refugees from around the world and admitting people from outside of the United States it continues to be so under President Trump and will be during our administration. Let's talk about the refugees.
