things between the leadership of the of the t.m.c. and. various ministers and crown prince is of those countries and that is angering the protestors because those countries saudi arabia the u.a.e. and egypt haven't even sent them back so it is to meet with the protest movement yet they are meeting at very high level with the transitional moves you counsel ok and racan with the latest from khartoum memoranda. yes national security advisor says he is quote almost certain that iranian naval mines damaged oil tankers off the coast of the united arab emirates earlier this month but anger about any evidence to back up that statement he is currently visiting the u.a.e. for more let's go live to say mr abi who is and tehran so what's what is their reaction and tehran is saying about these accusations. well rachele ever since the united states pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal
2:33 pm
a little over a year ago perhaps even ever since u.s. president donald trump became what was a candidate for the u.s. presidency the battle between the united states and iran has seemed to be a battle for narratives and that seems to be picking up steam again ahead of an important meeting between arab leaders later this week now what we're seeing in terms of this attack on the u.a.e. port the allegations of an attack that the united states says was carried out by iran iran has said that that was possibly a false flag operation carried out by the united states or israel also providing no evidence for this so certainly they are on opposite sides of a story that both countries leaders are trying to control and to that end in the last few weeks what iran has been doing is pushing the diplomacy narrative they've been trying to reach out to gulf arab neighbors they've said that their arms are wide open and they're willing to sign a non-aggression pact and the foreign ministry has been pushing out information
2:34 pm
steadily to suggest to its neighbors and to the wider world that the things that the united states says in their experience the rhetoric from the american government is something that cannot be taken too seriously. in his 1st media briefing as iran's new foreign ministry spokesman abbas moussavi wasted no time getting to the point if the united states wants talks with iran the starting point is returning to the 2015 nuclear deal. now we won't have any negotiation is the united states and on line has always been respect for international agreements to we stay could return there with. and based on delusion so we have no prospect for negotiation and invades for developments. as to offers by 3rd parties while iran's leaders are open to hearing from concerned friends mousavi says mediation isn't necessary yet stubbornly sticking to its guns
2:35 pm
seems to have worked in the iranian government's favor the u.s. has rolled back hawkish language and even with the american military buildup still in the region a war seems much less imminent iranians often say they don't care about iran's strategic victories or even standing up to america they care about things like the price of diapers for their children the value of their real currency fluctuating from one second to the next and generally being unable to afford a happy life. in my opinion everything should be solved through negotiations but out of politics should be separate from social issues because innocent people are being corrupt into political games if iran and america. get better during a visit to japan this week the u.s. president struck an optimistic note i do believe that iran would like to talk and if they'd like to talk we'd like to talk also we'll see what happens but the iranian government says the u.s. pullout from the 2050 nuclear deal has shown negotiating with americans is
2:36 pm
a fool's errand and as long as meaningful reduction of sanctions remains unlikely talking is a waste of time. iran is not interested in empty rhetoric and pays more attention to behaviors and will decide. iran seems to be meeting american sanctions and military threats with more soft power doubling down on a policy of strong links with other countries to build a chain of consensus and condemn america's role in the middle east to that end the new face of the foreign ministry often iran's loudest voice on the world stage made it clear iran remains wide open to diplomacy with everyone except the united states . now mr bolton continued to push the american narrative also in regards to the 2050 nuclear deal from which the united states has already pulled out saying that iran has no reason to leave and should not leave and
2:37 pm
the only reason it would is if it wanted to pursue a nuclear weapon iran's government has said over and over again that that is not the case and would point to these comments as hypocritical coming from a country that violated international agreements now russia's deputy foreign minister sergei riyadh of is also in teheran today he's been meeting with his counterpart in iran deputy foreign minister abbas iraq and they will be discussing a meeting between iran and the remaining signatories to the nuclear deal we're about 3 weeks into a 60 day deadline that iran set when it started to non cooperate with parts of the 2015 nuclear agreement earlier this year and iran's government the scheme for its remaining signatories european partners to help iran mitigate u.s. sanctions to help it benefit its economy as per the nuclear agreement to try and save the deal but as president hassan rouhani pointed out a few weeks ago iran has not benefited from the agreement and is beginning to roll

a better roost and the baltic states anywhere in that mass could produce heavy rain but for the day i think the risk is likely to be as is shown by the warnings in southern germany with the darkest green dancers d.v.d.'s to to northern italy now ahead of it's quite warm $28.00 degrees all wet toward moscow behind it well it's warming up each $15.00 to $18.00 degrees not bad if it rains quite likely in southern england and in france for example overnight the whole system moves slowly northwards and it was a little bit giving some relief and dry weather for northern ities temps in the twenty's here as they are throughout most of western europe because obviously it's much hotter in spain and portugal and as the rain marches east with sensors will slowly would only slowly drop in places like moscow and book rest rain down one degree but without the blazing sunshine and with the potential for sundry rain it will feel rather different. i don't buy into. everything it's designed in california. the cutting edge is in
