8:32 pm
more harsh in their language than most other politicians in the country because the united states has basically. betrayed the international community by leaving the agreement so but i think the united states is also here miscalculating because iran is not a small country iran is not a weak country run has allies across the region from the himalayas to the mediterranean from the red sea to central asia and iran has a very powerful presence in the persian gulf region so if the americans escalate the iranians will have no option but to escalate as well by them and asymmetrical fashion but mohammed what the u.s. is saying is that you may have stood by the letter of the deal but not the spirit that there is much more to be negotiated is there much more to be negotiated in toronto points of you know there's nothing to negotiate because the united states
8:33 pm
is not abiding by its current to commit by its current commitments. how can we negotiate anything else when what we've already negotiated for roughly a decade is to have been thrown out the window well who's to say that in future any agreement hypothetically that is reached will be abided by by the united states if the nuclear deal actually wasn't the americans didn't abide by the nuclear deal either under obama either from day one they began violating it yet the international atomic energy agency has said i think fourteen times now since the deal that the iranians have stuck to the deal. and that they were abided by abided by the deal very carefully and with this is one of the i think advantages of what trump has done. despite the hardship economic hardship that the u.s. has been trying to impose upon ordinary iranians just like the united states is trying to impose hardship on the venezuelans i saw you i saw you shaking your head
8:34 pm
in his show the bill for the i just want to bring you in just reply i haven't learned into iran is saying there's nothing left to negotiate. well there's a lot to negotiate at really don't think we're going to go into the details of what's really going on but the iran is actually in the process of developing its capabilities to actually have nuclear weapons developed and would then probably sixty years they really have the capability of course all is healed it is not as if the nuclear watchdog suggests the lights. well they're not develop them now but they're having the infrastructure and the development of the uranium and so forth to actually be able to do so but here's the key to this and everybody knows this unfortunately this is why this is an acceptable president drop is that all this deal did and it did do one thing is buy time for the west which is a period of time hopefully that there would be regime change or this was the promise here or somehow moderation by iran so all we've done is buy time and we
8:35 pm
know at the end of the time period of this agreement that iran would be in a position to legally and fully develop a nuclear weapons but let me just step back for that's our concern but let me just step back to a couple comments that were made in my shaking my head first is you know iran is a sophisticated country when president obama was negotiating this you had a majority of the senate and senate led by senator cotton united states senator saying they were opposed to this to this deal so two things why this is important first of all and they knew this. president obama was in a hurry at the end of his tenure to negotiate a deal to get a deal for a legacy but the united states isn't president obama it is a country we do not have a treaty we had an agreement but not a treaty and the reason we did not have a treaty to do this is because it requires the congress which represents the
8:36 pm
american people and a bipartisan buy in into the agreement to turn it into a treaty and the. this is why and this was no into iran that this was a a flimsy agreement to begin with and one that ultimately would not be binding and had we had a treaty with iran which would have required then senate approval which means bipartisan approval democratic and republicans well then that would have been a very different story and president trump and then you could use the phrase the united states would be behind the treaty so i think that's important and lastly on this to suggest that iran is not behind hamas in terrorism in their region i had to say this is just laughable to most people outside every ron iran is a state that is dedicated to say to supporting state sponsored terrorism throughout not only the region but throughout the world so it's iran's meddling in syria of course in yemen and in other places the world that is troubling not only the united
8:37 pm
states but to saudi arabia to the regional allies and therefore why they support quietly these sanctions i'm going to bring in dan weighing in beijing in just a moment but i do want to follow up on these two with these questions with you from washington and from tehran firstly. chile this is just about regime change this is about news unlike pump effectively said this is about pushing democracy within iran that's the real reason for this is not. would hope so and i'd be candidly i would hope that we have regime change in venezuela were opposing imposing sanctions as well i would hope that we would have resume change in iran these are these are not democracies these are people these are societies which are oppressing people and are promoting terrorism and i would hope and president i mean secretary. has also said that we should go to the source which which is cuba as well we impose
8:38 pm
sanctions on south africa and the one nine hundred eighty s. what we're i was in the reagan administration i didn't see much opposition to that with that was regime change driven are we going to invade iran no or venezuela i don't believe so as well but we're going to apply all the economic pressure. and stand with the venezuelan iranian people are not the iranian government not having run to your response please. well thank you for finally giving the a moment to respond to a long very long monologue. obviously your guest reminds me of pompei who just recently said when he was the head of the cia we cheated we lied and he stole and that's the american great american experience or something like that which you said just a couple of days ago the united states was lying from the very beginning when it came to the nuclear program even now the i.a.e.a. has never provided any evidence that iran was manufacturing
8:39 pm
a nuclear weapon even back then and the iranians despite much opposition inside the country they negotiated the deal to take that excuse away from the americans to show the international community that the americans are not honest about their dealings with iran and i think that both the fact that trump exited the deal shows that the united states is indeed dishonest and that the united states is not only a bully in our part of the world but it dictates terms to china to russia and the whole of the international community you do you shall not trade with this country or that country because we say so it is a it is an empire the united states supports apartheid in palestine a regime that even the democratic two of the key democratic candidates have admitted is racist and yet iran which supports the people who are constantly being bombed in gaza the iranians are supporting the terrorists the
8:40 pm
united states just like the united states in apartheid south africa they supported apartheid mandela and they in see were terrorists and those and the apartheid regime in south africa was a democratic regime that's how the united states works now iran is a dictatorship according to your guests but the united is allied with saudi arabia this is allied with the united arab emirates with mohamed bin sound man for the united states. is not supporting democracy the united states is opposed to democracy that's why the united states has helped saudi arabia starve the people of yemen let me let us bring in the regional perspective now on our soil a regional regional perspective let's bring in dan wearing from beijing what's china's reactions will this. well so far the public media has been quite calm there's not a widespread widespread opposition to the u.s.
8:41 pm
decision because overall when we think about oil trade with iran iran has been quite important to china it's one of the top five oil suppliers to china in terms of countries but it's not essential so it's all export to china account for about seven percent of china's total oil import it's a very difficult to replace but not impossible but in terms of the overall a broader economic ties i think iran actually take a very important position in china's global strategy because to start with iran is one of the major destinations for chinese products such as consumer goods tronics machinery and especially cars so iran has been a top car importer from china if you go to a major city in iran and you see chinese brands like computer id cherry leaf on they're all over the place even more so than in china and more importantly what i see is that iran has become
8:42 pm
a very important ally for china's belden road initiative which is not particularly well received at this point because there has been this china sentiment rising globally not just from the u.s. to europe but also from the receiving countries of the p.r.i. projects so to get china needs all the support you can get from from the rest of the world and iran is the one most important ally it could get but does this affect the u.s. china relationship or could it affect the u.s. china relationship will the the china simply choose its own political strategic needs over the u.s. as demands. certainly iran is one important ship but it's not the most important factor in the us china relationship at this point as we can also see that in the past few weeks the sentiment between the two country has improved because finally it looks as if a trade deal is finally on the table although i might be limited in nature to
8:43 pm
something will come out and what i think is possibly the u.s. will use iran as a bargaining chip and might offer china some sort of exception over the oil embargo under certain conditions and china a return cut off or too important more crude oil and say soybean or even pork from the u.s. so eventually it became some sort of deal over a third country and that can very likely to happen we already got so i go i do want to washington d.c. and have on both the same question i'll begin with her on what's the next move for iran having miranda is it blocking the straits of hormuz. well there are many alternatives first of all iran is probably sounding substantially more oil than what's being declared just like when obama imposed sanctions it was stated that iran was exporting a million barrels a day but in reality it later turned out to be closer to two million but more
8:44 pm
importantly is that iran has alternatives remember if you look at the map iran's presence and iran's allies presence across the region region is substantial but also iran's presence in the persian gulf is very substantial and one of the options that iran has and is and that is being discussed now is just like during the war with saddam hussein to begin stop and searches in the persian gulf region again and that this would be directed at saudi arabia the united arab emirates but kuwait at-at of iraq iran they can export import but because mohamed bin samana said he's going to take the war to run and because of the terrorist attacks that took place and the iranian intelligence believes that this all. they have determined that the saudis and their ati's are behind it the iranians believe that they are it would be justified to restock start the stop and searches and that would could be directed at cargo ships as well as tankers that coming go through u.a.e. or so the port and that while there would still be exports and imports but there
8:45 pm
could be a decline because of the slowdown of one or two million or three million barrels a day from these two countries iran has its options in the iranians know that the united states is definitely not looking for a military conflict so if the americans want to push hard the iranians have many options to push back and i don't think that anyone is going to blame iran because obviously it is trump and his people along with his allies like mohamed bin saddam on who are increasing this confrontation certainly that ladies and gentlemen we are out of time this will be a topic we will come back to i just want to thank you all and thank you to thoughts and you can see the program again any time by visiting a web site al-jazeera dot com and to further discussion as well facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story and you can also join the conversation on twitter handle is at a.j. inside story for me and the whole st there life and oh
