2:10 am
of the black lives matter campaign we will not let the legacy of our heroes be tarnished by you the more you lie the more you collude the more credibility you lose let's bring in our correspondent listening to that for us this rob reynolds rob what do you make of what mr truong has been saying so far. well peter there's quite a lot here but most of it is really pretty predictable the president started out by talking about american exceptionalism calling the united states the greatest the most virtuous country to have ever existed he then began to attack his enemies and appeal to his base saying that we are now in the process of defeating the leftist the anarchistic the looters who have in many cases no clue what they're doing and then as you mentioned more patriotic
2:11 am
rhetoric and the sort of obligatory attack on the press as well as the obligatory self praise for handling the coronavirus extremely well unbelievable in his words and blaming china for the origins of the covert 19 disease so this is the 2nd in 2 days of speeches of the president you hear this theme again the appeal to the base characterize ation of people who are protesting peacefully in the united states following the death of george floyd last in may in minneapolis as looters anarchists destroyers people who are intent on tearing down all of the symbols and virtues of the united states which is really quite overstating the case. he is now listing some of the
2:12 am
people who will be included in this idea he has had a garden of heroes not a lot of details on where that's going to be but or where and when it will be erected or if it will be erected but it's another one of these ideas the president . has had seemingly off the cough and is very excited about it so this speech part of an effort to restart a very faltering campaign he's running well behind joe biden in key states as well as nationwide and he's trying to get some of his. get some of his back and get some of the spirit that he has lost somewhat over the past several months of seclusion in lockdown i should mention also peter that the former vice president biden also spoke today by video message posted on
2:13 am
line saying emphasizing the goal of achieving racial justice and saying that it's time for americans to try to seize the opportunity to make the words of the declaration of independence that all men are created equal a reality in the united states in 2020 and going forward now the president will speak for a while there will be more. overflights of of a vintage warplanes over the crowd in washington and then a big extravaganza of fireworks and i can't really see exactly how many people there are behind him there on the national mall that looks like a lot. doesn't look like a lot of social distancing going on and of course public health officials in washington and elsewhere have been urging people all over the country to avoid big
2:14 am
public gatherings on this 4th of july holiday and talking about coronavirus rope most of the latest stance and numbers for the infection rates in the united states . well the death rate is climbing steadily towards 130000 there are more than 57000 new cases of positive corona virus announced by authorities today saturday you have large outbreaks in california where i am now in arizona in florida an explosion of 11000 cases reported on friday and also in texas which had 7000 cases and reported very alarmingly that the i.c.u. capability of the intensive care units in the country's largest medical complex in houston texas medical center that they're at 100 percent capacity right now so that
2:15 am
doesn't bode well for that state and that city and the people who may need care as the coronavirus pandemic continues its surge across the united states ok rob many thanks let's just go back for the next 30 seconds or so to those live pictures coming to us. of washington mr trump slightly obscured by his teleprompter machine you go he's worked he's moved back to the podium past is not a button to cost away he also said will not throw away our heroes we honor them we want to bring the country together a free and open media he'll sue said it would help to do that. those pictures live from the white house will the lines that story for you in the coming hours on the road of course $0.40 a day so the highest number of corona virus cases worldwide since the start of the pandemic the majority of new infections were recorded in latin america which is now
2:16 am
suppose in the number of 1000 cases the region has more than 2 and a half 1000000 and that figure is growing rapidly the figures are being driven up by brazil which is reported more than one and a half. in infections well more than 63000 people have died peru and chile are quickly approaching 300000 cases mexico has also been reporting record new infections it now has the 2nd highest death toll in latin america after brazil let's speak to our correspondent allison who is in bogota alexandra give us a sense of what's going on where you are reflected i guess as well in the overall picture across the region. yes peter is a very alarming picture across the region as you were saying in your introduction these numbers are driven mainly by brazil again today very high figures another almost 88000 new confirmed cases again and it's been the case for 4
2:17 am
weeks now more than a 1000 deaths there in one day but the situation is getting worse in other countries that have been successful at least at the beginning and trying to slow down the spread of contagion for example here in colombia that is seen quite important to increase in daily cases since says being reopening parts of its economy with the return of its large population informal people who work out and about on the streets they were hand to mouth they can stay home they have been allowed to return to work and in the last couple of weeks we have seen quite a big increase here the same is true. as you were also saying in your introduction to even argentina who was probably the most successful country in
2:18 am
containing the virus together with the why is seen an increase in the last days and weeks so very problematic pictures of fischel is here calling for a return to a strict strict measures in countries like where we are in colombia the government the national government here though is saying that's not possible because of how weak the economy is overall how big is the need for people to go out and work which means will probably continue to see these numbers going up officials here. any other parts of the countries are in sr in that region are insisting in the use face mask of mine painting social distance which most people are doing at least here in colombia that this same hasn't been true in other countries such as ecuador or big ticket cases in the capital
2:19 am
quito that's another problem that pirouettes had they had a very strict national choir and team since march but people have not truly respected and that's why that's also a country that has had a very hard time and going back to brazil we've seen how president to hear both and i don't mean this in trying to water down any new law or locals this citizens in cities and government the last one yesterday when he said that people don't need to use the basques when they are at work or a church is listened to thank you very much. reporting live for us this from the top let's bring in our go in washington he's a senior associate in the americas program at the center for strategic and international studies to go to out of go why is this getting worse in certain south american countries could it be that certain presidents or prime ministers they
2:20 am
haven't engaged with the reality as the situation has got worse week to week month to month well look this is definitely one of the. presidents in several countries they have been engaged seriously. are you know. or of. which is hard to believe or or simply because decisiveness in terms of tackling the problem for many presidents in latin america going back on their personal considered a sign of weakness so some of them prefer to walk in the wrong rather than shifting so that correct. in some other countries however whilst they imposed or suggested a lockdown people told me people not politicians people are just tired they are clearly so fatigued of having to stay at home and i guess that's offset against the reality which is you've got to keep some sort of economic base bubbling along so
2:21 am
you've got jobs for people to go back to absolutely the problem of that is that's a lock down or a pregnant teen is a collective effort if you have part of the population respecting the law respecting the crime unseen and social isolation while the other half full or part of the population does marked the efforts of those that are dedicated themselves to the current team is in vain negro's it's either a crow left if effort or it doesn't work at all and that's an american countries they lack that discipline in several topics throughout the history of latin america but this particular situation is becoming more evident for everyone that. if the problem is not something that they can actually see or feel they disregarded they are hit with the coronavirus and the balance between economy and
2:22 am
social. is being presented in iran yes way in latin america as a false equivalence in which that by denying the existence of a problem 'd and acting as things are just normal these will bring back normality we've seen in europe that several countries that we've been screened and we thought actually perform you know mock don't have a very soon fear economic problem because at the end of the day. the economy is not directly. with accepting or not the problem it is tight with the problem itself. we have to leave it there. in washington thank you very much. more than 200000 people in the spanish catalonia region have been put back under lockdown after rising covert 19 the number of infections there has almost doubled in one week the measures were brought in while the rest of the country does ease
2:23 am
restrictions not in barber explains. opening up for the 1st time in months the archbishop of barcelona joining a group of health workers on a visit to the segro to familiar cathedral soon it will welcome residents and eventually tourists spanish and foreign but nobody here is under any illusions that the coronavirus has disappeared. in the middle of the continent yet i think that we have to raise awareness in society and perhaps we haven't done it well enough and should try harder it seems good to me that they had a lockdown i think it's the only way to stop these outbreaks. elsewhere in the catalonia region they've imposed a mini lockdown in the rural district surrounding the city of later it's after the number of covered 1000 cases nearly doubled in a week to 325 on friday and. some cases have been linked to fruit picking operations now the area's 200000 residents are banned from meeting in groups of more than 10 and they can't travel outside the zone. the new measures come
2:24 am
a day after the united kingdom announced its so-called safe travel list those heading to dozens of countries including spain won't have to go into quarantine when they return notably absent from the list is portugal which thanks to quick action of voided the exponential rates of infections and deaths that spain has suffered on friday portugal reported $374.00 new covered cases mostly in and around the capital lisbon while the city's a tourist destination most british holidaymakers head for the southern coast of the algarve region and the portuguese government is calling the u.k. decision census the prime minister tweeted comparing covered 1000 cases per 100000 people and stressing british visitors a still welcome the. new i will say that on the 1st of july the united kingdom had 176 that of people from covert 19 and globally we are speaking of a country that has a population 6 times bigger than portugal and has until today 44000 deadly cases.
2:25 am
for now regions across europe which rely on tourism trying to strike a balance between allowing visitors in and keeping the coronavirus at bay nadine barber al-jazeera. well staying in europe there have been big queues and crowds across england as pubs restaurants hairdressers and cinemas reopened following a relaxation of the lockdown rules hundreds of businesses open their doors for the 1st time in 3 months in london big crowds gathered in beer gardens and door spaces but the atmosphere is very different inside numbers are being limited it's table service only and there's no live music police say they're prepared to manage the crowds but health workers fear the changes could lead to a sharp rise in new coronavirus infections. turkey is increasing naval cooperation with the un recognized government in libya the defense minister lucy acca made the remarks whilst inspecting a turkish ship of the libyan coast last year he signed
2:26 am
a maritime deal with the government in tripoli but there have been tensions with france and others across the mediterranean the european union says iran has triggered a dispute mechanism as part of its 2050 nuclear deal tehran is accusing the e.u. powers of failing to live up to their side of the agreement the foreign minister jabbers a reef has sent a letter to britain france and germany but didn't provide specific details on where the countries fell short of the obligations and said big has more now from tehran. this isn't the 1st time i've complained about the 3 germany france and the u.k. complained about the noncompliance of the european 3 before but this time they did send a letter to the foreign policy chief joseph complaining about their noncompliance and it comes. at the united nations choose the european countries of noncompliance complacency and not standing up to the bullying of the united states
2:27 am
now what do you bring in a motion that germany france and the u.k. put forward to the international atomic energy agency that called on iran to called on iran to grant access to a number of sites inside iran sites that iran considers that are not part of the 2015 nuclear deal across iran is concerned these are military sites however the i.a.e.a. has questions about these sites and some of the activities that took place there prior to 2015 nuclear deal being signed saying that iran says that all the nuclear activity is for peaceful means. already has access to all declared nuclear sites including 247 on line monitoring. iran didn't want any interference in the cooperation between the i and iran could have negative consequences this mechanism that the europeans are talking about for 30 days it can be extended if all parties agree before it's referred to the united nations it's the same mechanism that the 3
2:28 am
triggered back in january this year but then suspended after they had triggered that so iran not giving much details but we already know that iran is very frustrated with the europeans and the lack of compliance and essentially finding a way around the unilateral sanctions that the united states imposed on iran after they pulled out in 2018 well the story. is a policy consultant on iranian the culmination tension between the countries could bring a final to the nuclear agreement. it's very much looks like a situation in which iran is trying to read it own the legal process towards a potential end of the nuclear agreement and with this dispute resolution mechanism if you promise the complaining party it is theoretically in the position to if the responses from the other signatories are not satisfactory to iran iran is in this
2:29 am
in the position to say ok then we will leave this agreement so it basically has a colleague from the german as the other is only a lot has already said it's a way to legalize iran's exit from the agreement with the current state of affairs that very much looks as if we're going to see the end of the nuclear agreement by the end of this year a lot will depend on the run up to the presidential elections in the united states in the member and if that happened if if the deal fell apart we may even see you ron leaving then not clear and nuclear nonproliferation treaty n.p.t. and raising the stakes are nuclear nonproliferation globally again might be a better bargain in position for iran to then enter new talks directly with the americans at some point next year so the but that the time until then is extremely dangerous and we have to to really brace ourselves for more attention to flare up
2:30 am
