bonus lagos were back to their winning ways as they beat those will door three nil we'll bring you all the goals from sunday's match. i'm brian thomas thanks so much for being with us the u.s. is calling it a policy of maximum pressure the aim forcing iran to change its behavior and the last hour of the trumpet ministration has reinstated all signs on around the measures targeting all key areas of the country's economy including the oil financial and shipping sectors around has denounced the move of course saying it will not be intimidated but the restrictions look set to create more hardship for everyday people in the country. it's not business as usual in iran u.s. oil and financial sanctions have come back into force and the consequences could
7:02 am
cripple the islamic republic. u.s. president donald trump has called the obama era deal flawed his administration twice extended sanction waivers but no more iran sanctions are very strong the strongest sanctions we've ever imposed. and we'll see what happens with iran but they're not doing very well i can tell you iran is not doing very well. how iran fares under the renewed sanctions may become quickly evident with imports restricted iranians are likely to see a spike in prices for everyday goods with exports restricted the country's fragile economy may stagnate. we can see the effect of sanctions in this bizarre. there was a man here today who did not have money to buy aleutian for his baby because the economic situation is getting worse the people are very poor and times are hard. this time we feel that we've done everything right we we've involved ourselves in
7:03 am
the international community we've done the steps that have been asked of us and we've said the right things and now what it feels like is that we're facing a bullying tactic. whatever the immediate impact on ordinary iranians the trump administration stated target is iran's government so what and support for terrorism and syria's bashar al assad they hope what the administration calls maximum pressure will weigh on iran's leadership in a way that previous decades of u.s. sanctions and economic isolation have not. well will this be the case with me in the studio to talk about that our view correspondent on iran expert teresa tropper good morning trooper. the president is hoping that these sanctions resuming them will get around to return to the negotiating table can this work out that way well so far the iranian leadership has shown no sign at all that it's going to meet
7:04 am
these demands for example of the religious leader ayatollah ali how many just said in his recent remarks that the u.s. had failed to reassert its domination over iran and also powerful groups like the revolutionary guards have evolved resistance publicly and back in july when offered a summit meeting they run into also reacted very negatively because they think they will not get anything in return but if they're ordinary iranians they both suffer the most from the sanctions like food prices for example have already gone up by fifty percent that's according to iran's central bank so the government is already giving food baskets to no income families to reduce the impact of the sanctions so among those ordinary iranians there are some people who feel that it. and tom if president rouhani and president talked so it couldn't harm if they talk but could there be an additional response we've already had this verbal response you know the food packages what could be other ways that iran might respond to the sanctions
7:05 am
well president rouhani threatened in the past that he could for example close the strait of hormuz and that of course would impact international ship transfer oil. trade but so far it looks as if iran just intends to wait out the trump and this administration hoping that the next administration will just return to the nuclear agreement so this no real sign that iran is going to show like a few years responds publicly and until then they're just circumvent these sanctions and that's something they're actually pretty good at because they've had a lot of practice with that over the past decades what about the stability of the iranian regime is accusing the united states of trying to force a change in the government to bring about a toppling of the government is that rhetoric or around worried. it might be worth but that's more because of the economic problems the country has like many of the protests we've seen over the past month actually related to that and if the
7:06 am
situation worsens that might be more protests of course but that doesn't mean that regime change with a round the corner because iran is the really feel another revolution might be helpful at the moment some of them actually will support the last one of course actually quite many of them and others just underestimate instability so instead like a sense of resignation more. interest of thanks so much for the trees are trumper for us around expert here thanks very much. now for some of the other stories making news around the world president trump has criticized illegal immigration and high taxes as republican voters rally in the states of georgia and tennessee on the final weekend before midterm elections former president barack obama also appearing on the campaign trail to support democratic party candidates this vote will decide which party controls the u.s. congress. the first group of central americans traveling in
