1:04 am
believes the protests are unlikely to bring regime change but could still have a serious long term effect in the region. i think it's pretty obvious that this movement similar to the arab uprisings in two thousand and eleven doesn't have a clear leadership or an organization it also doesn't have a specific mission the slogans range from economic grievances all the way to regime change and that's why it's hard to imagine that it would be able to preserve its momentum in the long run i think important to note at this stage is that president rouhani has recognized both the right the legitimate right of people to protest and the legitimate grievances of the protestors but i fear that if these protests will continue in the next few days it will become more and more violent and at some stage the system will have to bring down its iron fist out of fear that these could
1:05 am
also be exploited by iran's regional rivals and. its enemies abroad. and at that stage you could see crackdowns that could be very violent and that in itself could provide justification for additional sanctions on iran and even i can imagine that president trump could use the same justification to go as far as withdrawing from the nuclear deal and therefore exacerbating all of these tensions . hoofy rebel fighters in yemen say at least thirty people have been killed or injured in asterix in a data province sounded odd coalition planes reportedly targeted two vehicles carrying hoofy from excess which is stopped as a petrol station in el dorado a district of course sources told al jazeera a number of civilians were among the dead and syria's government has launched and these twelve asked strikes on rebel held areas just outside damascus to rescue

1:07 am
new year's day address that is drawing all the attention if two thousand and seventeen was marked by fiery rhetoric and rising tensions because of north korea's nuclear ambitions two thousand and eighteen may bring more of the same. dollars from that the u.s. mainland is within the range of our nuclear strike and the nuclear button is put on the desk in my office at all times they should clearly on their stand but this is never a trash what are reality kim has called for the mass production and deployment of more nuclear warheads and missiles but weapons experts agree that north korea may not yet have the technology to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and mounted a missile that could be entering the atmosphere while kim speech made no mention of the new kid atmospheric test he reiterated the claims that north korea is now a nuclear power in stark contrast to the hostile remarks to the united states is
1:08 am
the conciliatory overture from kim jong un to south korea he's even suggested dialogue between the two sides something south korean president proposed several months ago and which north korea ignored. we should actively create an atmosphere to move forward with the national reconciliation and reunification improving ties between the north and the south is an urgent issue that not only the north and south want but everyone else wants he suggested north korea is prepared to send its athletes to participate in the upcoming winter olympics and paralympics in next month. south korea has responded to these proposals positively saying it hopes communication which has been severed between the two sides for nearly two years can be restored so whether in south korea's presidential office the wall comes north korean leader kim jong il's new year's speech today which expressed willingness to send a delegation to the counter olympics and proposed talks as he entered knowledges

1:10 am
united states being right on his borders and he wants to get rid of the united states and the only way to do that is to make sure that south korea and the united states have different priorities and different negotiation outcomes that they seek different negotiation outcomes it would be difficult for south korea to ignore something like this and they have been ignored in the past when north korea has approached them about family reunions or joint industrial projects those are things that have been going on in the past and they've negotiated that on a bilateral level so south korea will be very difficult i know they've they passed the deadline it will be very difficult for south korea to turn away north korea when it when it is a a friendly just at least on paper it's clear that north korea is has a strategy here because they also threaten the united states in the same new year's message and that's also part of bringing the threat to the u.s. homeland and that's another part of splitting the united states from south korea so by threatening seattle north korea's hoping that the u.s.
