8:50 am
says it will suspend some of its commitments under the landmark agreement after the u.s. introduced new sanctions earlier this week designed to target the framework of the deal itself effectively forcing iran's hand president hassan rouhani led world powers know his country will not abide by a stockpile limits on enriched uranium and heavy water he said iran could also resume the production of uranium enriched to a higher level than it currently manufactures and rebuild a heavy water reactor without the oversight of its partners in the nuclear deal more namely call him as the united states wanted to pull out of the way to make iran withdraw the day after so they could refer the case to the un security council in order to redouble pressure on iran however iran did not fall into this trap and did not play in the united states course in practical terms it is a first step by iran in response to more than a year of mounting u.s. pressure. and in moscow iran found support from a strong friend at
8:51 am
a critical time russia blamed the united states for single handedly undermining the twenty fifty nuclear deal and said u.s. sanctions against iran are unacceptable and illegitimate. all of this has been lamentable behavior by the u.s. we hear of regular statements from the u.s. to stop any iranian influence not just in syria but across the region it's unrealistic to terminate this improvements and it has no charts as a serious policy iran may be economically isolated but the message from russia is that iran is not alone. together the foreign ministers of both countries put european signatories to the iran deal on notice. because i hadn't he. made a decision to implement that. not to stop its implementation not to work against it not like the americans will withdraw from it in a letter to him basters of the u.k. france germany china and russia president rouhani said those countries have sixty
8:52 am
days to implement their promises to protect iran's oil and banking sectors from u.s. sanctions he said steps iran is taking remain in line with the wording of the nuclear deal iran remains committed to it and to maintaining peace in the region but experts into herat say the country is also preparing for things to get worse before they get better. iran's announcement comes as american forces have been deployed to the region in response to what the u.s. says is a threat posed by iran. the leaders of both the united states and iran have said they want to avoid a conflict but both sides continue to send strong signals they are ready for one and as tensions heighten between tehran and washington the latest announcement from president hassan rouhani puts even more pressure on european countries and remaining signatories to the nuclear deal to do something to salvage an agreement that's been in jeopardy since u.s. president donald trump took office saying. like the sanctions on iranian
8:53 am
oil that were recently toughened by the tropical destruction the new sanctions target the fun's not just of those with iran who operate in the on steel aluminum copper sectors but also those who engage in the international trade in iranian metals around the world donald trump said nations were on notice quote allowing iranian metals into your ports will no longer be tolerated and quote the u.s. secretary of state was in london when he called for unity among u.s. allies against iran were on the same side we're on the side of values driven democracy we're on the side of freedom or on the side of creating a nation for the iranian people where they can have religious freedom and they can have a democracy but it was impossible to escape the truth it is the us that is remembered only un ratified treaty that was working iran must never be able to acquire a nuclear weapon it's no secret that we have a different approach on how best to achieve that u.k. has continued to support the nuclear deal which is
8:54 am
a key achievement of the global nonproliferation architecture because we believe it's in our shared security interests a message underlined elsewhere so that. for a few months now the deal that was signed in vienna to keep iran's nuclear activities in check has been undermined because exactly a year ago the u.s. decided to pull out from the deal and not respect it. china approves of the way that iran has carried out its duty to comprehensively fulfill the agreement and we oppose the unilateral sanctions implemented by the us and its so-called long jurisdiction. even washington members of congress and commentators usually only too happy to criticize terror all deeply skeptical of the trump administration's recent claims of an imminent threat from iran particularly once a transpired that the u.s. aircraft carrier group that had been deploying to the middle east had been heading there anyway despite national security adviser john bolton's presentation on sunday of an escalation of u.s.
8:55 am
conflict residents in the region the president said in his statement that the added pressure on terror is simply to persuade the government to sign a new deal with the u.s. the fear is that those around him are attempting far more. washington now the chairman of the u.s. house foreign affairs committee is pushing for gulf countries to work together to contain what he describes as the threat posed by iran says this can't happen while saudi arabia the u.a.e. reign in egypt maintained it almost two years. the united states engulfed partners share economic opportunities anti-terrorism concerns and can be working together to counter the threat posed by iran for this to happen a unified gulf is essential but so far we have not seen unfortunately enough progress to end the blockade it is in all parties interest to end this blockade so that we can work together to counter the real threats in the region i do very
8:56 am
least gulf countries should allow overflight rights and we're going live now to she hop she had voices in the us once again repeating calls for an end to the blockade of the best time because of a interests in combating iran. right and that's what sort of so so interesting about the the framing of the blockade in the end it angles all given that it is if only the blockade could end it should and so that can draw in with saudi arabia and the u.a.e. and fight iran and it's a similar message to the we heard from mike pompei with the secretary of state when he visited kuwait and marty said the blockade must be lifted so that the gulf allies can come back together again and fight iran but what's so strange about it is one of the reasons why widely believe there is a blockade is because qatar has long wanted an independent foreign policy that isn't subsumed by the wishes off of riyadh and abu dhabi riyadh and abu dhabi all
8:57 am
this me obsessed with overthrowing the iranian government kotto no obsessed with over there they go over there to govern in tehran and that's one of the reasons why mahmoud and others have said look we need to teach a less lethal force the reporting we've heard for months and months and months since the book i began so those should hope paradoxically the american position is the hawkish american position is when it comes to the blockade on the one out they do want an end to the blockade of kata but the reason is they use all paradoxically one of the reasons why there is a perhaps a book aid right now because once has its own agenda in the region which doesn't necessarily chime with that off. and realize she had thank you very much for that for now that she have a ton see live in washington d.c. thank you. now elsewhere qatar in the u.a.e. and facing off at the international criminal court of justice stephanie decker has
8:58 am
more from the hague. the court is hearing a specific application by the united arab emirates who are claiming that qatar is basically hampering their efforts to implement suggestions by the court which has to do with allowing companies citizens particularly families that are intermarried and students to return to the emirates it all boils down to a website that the company citizens can use to apply for an m.r.i. t v's are there saying qatar is blocking that website and the guitar's is saying that they're doing that for their own security due to issues with malware this is what is being heard here cutter is presenting their response and then on thursday you will have both sides giving their final statements the court will then go and deliberate it can take weeks we're told until it may gree or not whether to implement some of what the emirates once implemented the bigger picture is this it is a case that qatar has brought here because it says that politics has turned personal discrimination against its citizens really wanting something to change but if you
8:59 am
look at the bigger picture when it comes to the political situation with the blockade almost two years on when it comes to the summer june of this year it doesn't seem to be going in the direction that is going to end anytime soon. let's move on to other news now in the u.s. house judiciary committee has voted to hold attorney general william and contempt of congress that escalates the democrats' legal battle the trump ministration of access to russia report by has refused to submit an act of version of the special counsel's findings president trump has asserted executive privilege of the report shielding it from public view and another development on the alleged collusion the us senate intelligence panel has subpoenaed the president. jr he's reportedly being summoned to provide arms about his contacts with russia senators are reportedly looking to question him about his twenty seventeen congressional testimony on plans for a trump tower project in moscow and democrats in the new york state senate have approved a bill that would give congress access. president donald trump state tax returns
9:00 am
the bill has to be approved by the new york state house to. gain is following developments in washington. after a long and contentious hearing the house judiciary committee has voted along party lines to issue a contempt of congress citation against the william bar the u.s. attorney general this is all over the special counsel's report about potential collusion between the trim campaign in russia and obstruction of justice barr release a redacted version of the report the democrats who control the committee said that's not good enough they want to see everything that was blocked out they want to see the evidence underlying conclusions they said the timeline did not give them that report. issued. now both sides both parties trying to paint this as a very different issue democrats say this is about checks and balances republicans say this is about getting the president we have a constitutional responsibility to.
