1:04 pm
the cold war has been a kind of drift and she, in what she puts times as the free wells that countries like the u. k. america, france, italy, etc. have taken their eyes off the ball and they've, it allows countries like russia and china to assert themselves and that they've done this because they have been entertaining, bad ideas, bad ideas a she thinks that relativism this lack of any objective truth and also bad policies that you know, if your cutting defense spending and your becoming too relying on cheap energy and chinese development finance, then you're going to leave yourself weaker. so she wants those sorts of things to be corrected. what's her real audience though? is it the foreign minister gathered here? was it something more domestic as far as johnson had prime minister, languishes in the polls? these being the fet, by crisis off the crisis. there are many here in the u. k. who are looking at least
1:05 pm
trust is perhaps a future leader of the conservative party. it might be that her sort of neo fact, your rhetoric is that appeal to her party as much the is to the western world already. thank you so much for a challenge that she's talking to live from liverpool look, elections are getting on the way in the occupied westbank with around 400000 palestinians eligible to cast a vote. they are the 1st pulls the in 2 years, but that he does the factor and hammers remain at odds over when to hold the next general election. the last one was 15 years ago will be live with our correspondent, need an abraham in the occupied west bank shortly. first, let's take a look at what the local polls might tell us about the bigger political picture in palestine. these women are running for the local council and our cedar shamaya village in the north of the occupied bank. the visiting potential voters to campaigned for the electoral list more than 6000 voters in the village are eligible
1:06 pm
to choose 11 council members. 20 percent of local council seats half to include women by law while, while women here are active in the campaign, photos of them were missing from the campaign. posters. in many villages, faces of women were replaced by pictures of flowers or other graphics because of conservative views. if he mill activists in the village has, she's pushing for a better representation of women in politics. in odyssey, we like a political will to advance women's rights. we are not there just to fill the female coat us. we need laws that ensure that women are not being ignored. the walk local councils are responsible for basic services such as water, electricity, and infrastructure. they don't pass legislations or deal with national politics. local elections could improve day to day issues for palestinians, but many say they want a general election to choose their political leaders. it's been 15 years since palestinians voted for parliament because of political in fighting. 6 months ago
1:07 pm
the palestinian president mahmoud abbas again postponed a general election and didn't set a new date. the law firm of drew robin, there are no indications that we are getting any closer to holding any parliamentary or presidential elections and of him. and now it's really important to hold the elections to change the reality on the ground and to improve the economic situation. burnett, her masters boycotted the local elections because the movement wants long delayed general and presidential elections. but some of its supporters are running for municipal office, while others planned to vote. the ruling 14, the westbank for the already has wide support in these local elections will lead to dead. who is the head of pulls that the palestinian center for policy and survey research. he conducted the pool in some of the villages where elections are being held ill by lay barbarella. people usually choose their candidates based on familial relations and not political affiliations. also into math is not running.
1:08 pm
we can't measure the popularity of political factions based on those elections. half of the 1800 people pulled described the status of democracy in the west bank as bad, or very bad. and abraham joyous live now from the village of sort of daphne ramallah in the occupied west bank need a welcome to the news. these local elections are being boycotted by some groups. so what's the point to me? what will we learn from the result? there is little to learn from the results of these local elections for several reasons. first of all, these villages are that are undergoing elections though. the ones that have a population of less than 1100 or 11000 people, which is why these elections represent 30 percent of the palestinian people. 70 percent of voters are supposed to be casting their ballots in bigger towns and
1:09 pm
cities. elections, which are scheduled for phase 2, which will take place in march. there is little to know also because her masters boycotted the elections. they said they want general elections. they want presidential elections that can to and you for them to enter new parliament, which is something that has been postponed. the 2 parties accuse each other. there is a lot of fighting going on between them politically on this, on the date of these upcoming elections. this is why many people here say that this is the condition between further hand hum as the internal fighting has prevented them from choosing their own political leaders. many people here have been telling us that it is not a democracy. they've been seeing the same old face distance establishment of the palestinian authority. they accused of corruption and they, they say they want new elections that change faces. but when it comes to the local elections, people here mostly choose based on their relatives of family and ties. sort of told
1:10 pm
us that they are choosing based on programs. they want fitted infrastructure, roads, and basic services. but what they really want is to be able to choose their political leaders. there's been no general election that nita, in what a decade and the half is the starting point for the vote today. therefore, a feeling of feeling disenfranchised, almost as a feeling of no matter how they vote or even if they vote, nothing will change anyway. they these elections, the municipal ones and their local council ones have been held relatively in time regularly. so these are separate from the general elections. it's just the dark or harsh reminder for many people that while they can vote for small things like a local council here and there, they're still deprived from choosing their old political leaders ever since the
1:11 pm
fighting happened between and the split between fatty hand hamas. we've had 2 parties ruling in palestine, one photoshoot ruling the occupied west bank and ham masses ruling the gaza strip. and this has also led to the air, a passing and president a dismantling their parliament and calling it ineffective. so there's, there's, there's a lot to be said about the status of democracy here. but this both today is not, is not bringing palestinians any closer to those elections. they fear, but they're still demanding the palestinian as president and ham mass to agree on a new date for elections. did a thank you very much. did abraham, they're talking to us from the village of sorta plenty more still to come for year and then use our including will look at my some groups in one south african province of pushing for independence. the territorial disputes in the south china sea. as soon as the next security flash point in asia of the allegations of chinese

1:13 pm
the talks continued from 9 am vienna time on saturday, and they are taking parts in various working groups to chime, hammer out some of the details of what they are trying to get from each side. the iranians led to the reigning delegation, led by the deputy foreign minister, alibaba connie, who said that they are much more optimistic after the break they had. and they resumed this round, which was on thursday. they said there's seems to be a much more seriousness on all parties involved to try and get this nuclear deal back on track. we also heard from abraham racy, as you mentioned, who has been very quiet about the negotiations in general. and he mentioned that in passing, in most of his speeches, he just continues saying the same or line and that is that around his very serious and that sanctions must be lifted before they re news will go back to full compliance. the deputy foreign minister was here, has said that they renew i put forth 2 proposals. one is about exactly how those sanctions they want to be lifted. and the 2nd is about iran's nuclear program. and
1:14 pm
what will happen in terms of the technical aspects of how iran will go back to for compliance. we are now waiting as the are the iranians for the americans to respond to those proposals which will decide whether or not these negotiations will move forward and era. we expect robert malley to be in vienna soon. and then we'll have a better idea of where things stand that there has been no discussion about what the americans have decided to do about the proposals from iran. we've also heard from the foreign policy chief and joseph were out who has a start of this round on thursday was very optimistic. he said all parties came back here with very serious intention to try and resolve the issues. so there seems to be much more incentive than the 1st round, which began on november 29th with a new administration from to ron and washington. don't. so you got to sit done with the i. e a chief. what was he saying? well, it was a wide ranging
1:15 pm
a discussion. we specifically talked about the role of the i. e a. but then we of course, talked about this, j. c, p o, a and raphael grossi was very much adamant that it is a deal that is very, very important. and critical for their work. they are not involved in the politics of this nuclear deal. they just want to verify what has been agreed to. he also talked about the issues that remain with iran. he admitted that iran is one of the, it's the country that as the most inspections of his nuclear program in the world. but despite that, he said there are still issues that they are discussing with iran. that is a cause for concern for the i a and this is what he had to say about that specific those issues the ages he and iran are trying to come to an agreement on a basic on 2 things. one is the capability or the ability of the agency to return to one facility, one specific facility in iran,
1:16 pm
where we need to reinstall cameras there that need to be there. and it has been difficult to to this. so we have been talking about these and the other thing is how to address a number of issues which need to be clarified. the agency found traces of nuclear material in places that had not been declared before the facility he's talking about there is kara shuts out just outside of to ron, it's a workshop that produces centrifuge us for a wrongs nuclear program. and adarine said that the f b, i e had 4 cameras in that facility. and in june there was an act of sabotage which destroyed one of those cameras. and they blame israel for that. they said at that time that they are going to take all 4 cameras off line until there is an investigation. and there is some kind of a statement issued by the united nations and the i. e. until that happens, the rangers are not willing to open up again,
1:17 pm
inspections to that workshop. and the director general mentioned that this is one of the points of contention because they cannot determine what is happening in iran's nuclear program. if they don't know where the centrifuges are going and how many are actually being made. and this is where the impasse is at the moment. and of course, to hear more from that interview, you can watch in its entirety at 830 gmc on sunday here on out here. don't. so thank you very much door. so jabari there talking to was from vienna for you canden and connelly's army say they're making progress in their joint operation against the allied democratic forces in eastern d. all congo. they say they've destroyed for camps belonging to the army group captured 34 fighters and fried 31 congolese hostages for people on the ground this hope, but also lingering unease about the partnership malcolm web asked the story over the last 10 days, the people of the small board of town in democratic republic of congo have seen
