9:04 pm
and there shouldn't be collective punishment of south africa and its neighbors. in southern africa, he firmly put his weight behind the world health organization statement, a ball position. with this statement which was read out a short time ago. the secretary general said he is now deeply concerned about the isolation of southern african countries due to new coven 19 travel restrictions. as he and others have long warned low vaccination rates or breeding ground for variance. the people of africa cannot be blamed for the morally low level of vaccinations available on the continent, and they should not be penalized for identifying and sharing crucial science and health information with the world. the secretary general appeals to all governments to consider repeated testing for travelers together with other appropriate and truly effective measures with the objective of avoiding the risk of transmission so
9:05 pm
as to allow for travel and economic engagement. now the secretary general has also made it clear in the past that war time, logic should be brought in to the discussions of kobe 19 in order to deal with the virus. and with this new variant, i asked his spokes person about that. and whether now, if you need a new vaccine or at least the existing vaccines need to be adjusted and adapted because of the new variant. whether the pharmaceutical counter companies should share the licensing of those vaccines and allow laboratories across the world to produce the vaccine. and he said that yes, the secretary general strongly supported that sort of move by the pharmaceutical companies move. they resisted until this point is also worth pointing out that the 2nd general of the united nations is a strong advocate of the w. h. chose view on vaccination around the world and the target the w h o set,
9:06 pm
which was for 40 percent of people in the world to be vaccinated by the end of this year and 70 percent by the end of 2022. and he made it clear the spokes person that when nowhere near the target for the end of this year. indeed, thank you for that update. james bays outside the united nation. all right, let's bring in our white house correspondent kimberly help could hello the kimberly . the president tried to reassure americans a short time ago. what more did he have to say during his press conference? the u. s. president did have a message at largely to target the domestic audience, but he did address the criticisms. the u. s. has been facing with regard to vaccine inequality globally view as president in his message under scoring that the united states has shared hundreds of millions of doses of vaccines with 110 countries. and he is calling on the rest of the world to do the same. so the u. s. president certainly addressing some of those criticisms, but at the same time,
9:07 pm
reassuring americans that there is no need to panic in his view. with regard to this new, highly contagious ami con variant that he believes the science in place in the united states is effective. there is a belief, although it's still not understood fully, that the vaccines that many americans have already received will be able to combat at least the most severe aspects of the disease. but the u. s. president, once again used his address to the nation to remind the 10s of millions of americans not yet vaccinated, that their best defense against this new varied is to get vaccinated and to get their booster. so the u. s. president once again reiterating that message and saying that there will be a development of further boosters if needed. thank you very much. kimberly how can live for us in washington, d. c. all right, let's bring in at jana. whoa, who's been following developments from london? and after the u. k hosted and meeting of g 7, ministers in china,
9:08 pm
that was obviously a very important meeting. what was discussed what it was, opportunity obviously for the health ministers of the world's most advanced economies, to get together share their knowledge at all the knowledge of their respective scientists and what they think they know about on the call and what it might be capable of and how best to come up with it with a sort of coordinated response, if not in the view of many an appropriate response. kelly and no ting as well. that the numbers of cases now being distributed around the world indicate some level, at least of community transmission so that you know all micro where it has arrived globally. and is to some extent, a large extent outside the scope of travel bands to be able to contain it. they released a statement. they praised the exemplary efforts of south african scientists. and the speed with which they operated to make the world aware of what they had found. and then they took into account this idea of vaccine distribution that we've been
9:09 pm
hearing so much about clearly very high up the agenda. they said, they said they recognized the strategic importance of ensuring access to vaccines and that they would take forward their pledge made in june this year at their summit in cornwall to distribute a 1000000000 doses of the vaccine to the developing world. now they are nowhere near according to the experts, the g 7 at this point near being able to meet that pledge, whether this is adding impetus to the dr. now that we've heard for the w, h o from president biden, and from the un secretary general as was laid out, the impetus to this drive to vaccinate the world will remain to be seen. but the campaigners will say, look, we've heard these promises before and leaders like ser ram. a poser have reiterated their complaint saying that this should be a wake up call to the world that the vaccine inequality mustn't be allowed to continue until everyone is vaccinated. everyone will continue to be at risk. let's
9:10 pm
hope that something gets done. thank you very much for that update. john, how live us in london. and as we mentioned, japan is banning only foreign travelers, governments, in se asia have also imposed restrictions in a bid to contain the spread of these ami cranberry and hong kong is the only territory in that region. though that has detected the new variant, tiny chain, big reports from bangkok, no sooner had japan declared victory against curve at 19 and relaxed its entry requirements. and the door slammed, shut its prime minister announcing on monday that he would be taking no chances with the new berry and guy who was in with regard to foreign visitors, entering japan for midnight of november 30th we will ban entry from all parts of the world thailand and indonesia announced new although less stringent bands on arrivals from southern african nations lockdown have been devastating to the

9:13 pm
iran says it's optimistic after the 1st day of resumed talks in vienna, and it's salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal. representatives from russia, china, germany, france, and the u. k. met with iranian officials, the u. s. is there, but only holding talks indirectly discussions stoled in june after the election of a runs president abraham rising tehran, one sanctions to be lifted in return for limits on its nuclear program. tulsa jabari is covering the meetings from vienna. this is seen as a very beginning of what could be really the newly appointed team from iran and from the new government of every racy is headed by the reigning deputy foreign minister, alibaba murray. and his team of 38 men who are very well versed in the countries economy. they're all specialties at their specialists in iran's economy,
9:14 pm
from various different divisions of the government. they are here to find out what the other side will likely do in terms of moving forward. they're trying to gauge the mood from the europeans as well as the americans. i've spoken to sources into iran who are looking at the other parties involved to say that they are seeing some members in the negotiating teams from all sides. that are very well versed in terms of the security of the countries. meaning that they are expecting iran and other programs, not just a nuclear program will also be brought up. that is of course, something the renew of said they will not do. and they said they were only here to discuss how the americans will lift their sanctions. that they've imposed on or on the deputy foreign minister has said they are on nuclear program and other programs as well as iran regional involvement is not for negotiations. but of course, the parties involved, including europeans, have said that these talks are not going to go on forever, that there needs to be some kind of resolution as soon as possible. for more
9:15 pm
analysis on this story, let's bring in. i leave i is who is the director of the iran project or the international crisis group? he's also a former, you an official who worked on nuclear negotiations in join says from washington d. c. thank you very much ali. you're obviously right across the face. how optimistic can we be that the deal can actually be salvage? russia has come out and said that it started quite successfully in iran, says it's optimistic, but is that the truth? well, you know, i think we have to temper our expectations about what can come out of this 1st round of negotiations after 5 months long pause. the reality is the 2 sides are far apart and diplomatic momentum has been lost. there is a new iranian negotiating team and they have a lot of maximum. the demand at this stage is really hard to say, what did they also have the requisite flexibility to meet the us halfway and find a way to restore the compliance with the original agreement or not. you've talked
9:16 pm
about these demands. what are the speaking points 50, ron, and also what are the sticking points for washington? and can they made in the middle? well look, it's true that obviously iran has been burned as a result of us withdrawal from the 2015 agreement by president trump in 2018. and i was asking for guarantee that this would not happen again, that the us would not re, neg, on, on its commitments. the problem is that the original agreement was negotiated as a non binding political understanding. the word agreement is not even into title. and so some of the things that are wrong, ones like wholesale lifting of sanctions and the long term guarantees are really difficult to fit within the 4 corners of the original agreement. and the u. s. also has a lot of demands about iran rolling back. it's nuclear program to take into account for advancements that it has made that are not re reversible like on advanced
9:17 pm
centrifuges and research and development. but you know, the reality is that there is a narrow pathway forward, but it really requires both sides to be flexible and try to find innovative ways. and so this would take some time. but the problem is impact runs. nuclear program is growing exponentially by today. how has the change in administration in iran hindered phase negotiations? well then you run in negotiating team is comprised of the people who are either skeptics of the original agreements or outright opponents of it. and so it's, they haven't much tougher approach and, and again the u. s. and the western parties expected that this would be, you know, they're, they would try to drive a much harder bargain. but the question to which we don't have an answer yes. after the 1st day is what are they, ronnie and team is pragmatic enough to understand that unless they also compromise and flexibility,
9:18 pm
the only outcome is the diplomatic deadlock and with the growth of ransom for program by the day, we would soon reach a point that the the non proliferation value of the original agreement will be very difficult to restore and the risks of military action by israel already united states would grow to danger. so what is the state of that nuclear program? does terran have the expertise material to make bombs? oh sorry, right now has the enough material for several weapons. the reality is that the measuring stick here is what is known as the breakout time, which is the amount of time that it takes for run to enrich enough uranium, a to weapons grade to be able to develop one nuclear weapon. and the j. c. p, a, the original agreement extended that timeline to 12 months, but now that timeline is less than a month while we appreciate you breaking it down for us. thank you very much. allie, via the director of the iran project at the international crisis group. thank you
