sanctions on his country the five world opinion and is likely to backfire he accused the us of being a bully saying these sanctions targeted ordinary people the us reintroduce the measures to day after pulling out of the iran nuclear deal back in may the e.u. says it regrets the reintroduction of the measures still affect all areas of the iranian economy including the oil and social sectors. iranian markets like this are where economic reality rubs up against real lives the mere threat of sanctions has seen food prices here double in just a year shuttered store fronts speak to the hardship i'm going to do is directed closer to home how all of you could be because these disasters are inflicted on the people by our government i don't recall and the thousand tromps can't do anything to us that's not support. i mean. the effects are felt
5:03 pm
beyond the bazaar with iran's oil and finance sectors watched it major international companies are withdrawing from ted on their side the ties in business they have had to sack several staff. that's really heart breaking it's heart breaking for the people that we talk to to say that look i'm so sorry there is no business and therefore if there's no business i cannot give you a job they've studied they're excited about what they want to do in the future. no hope is being taken away from them the man behind the sanctions u.s. president donald trump hopes they will maximize pressure on iran iran sanctions are very strong the strongest sanctions result for a vote. we'll see what happens with iran but they're not doing very well i can tell you iran is not doing very well but to run shows little sign of bending a defiant president hassan rouhani pledge to ignore the sanctions. this is an
5:04 pm
economic war we're standing up to a billion enemy yes that he said i'm hussein was in front of us today it is trump there is no death. and talking tough and testing their military hardware to. these drills designed to send a message here ran ramping up the rhetoric in a bed to stop economic hardship from turning into until regime sentiment. and the sanctions cut deep let's find out just how they are affecting the people in iraq europe because it is a correspondent with german public broadcasters a day off and he joins us now from the iranian capital of tehran your before you set the scene for us on how this latest round of u.s. sanctions are affecting the local economy what are these punitive measures designed to do. you know officially the u.s.
5:05 pm
government denies that aiming for a regime change in iran although they would definitely appreciate it so the iranian leadership is convinced that this is the actual driving force behind the sanctions and my impression is that if the u.s. expect the sanctions to bring the people to the streets i don't think that this is going to happen the opposite is actually what you can see like in many cases when there is pressure being put on an even disputed government that people unite behind this government so but if the idea is to bring iran back to the negotiating table and even include their ballistic missile program into these talks i think that this is much more likely to happen than any regime change in iran oh right now let's talk about the people of iran because this is bad news for them why how iranians day to day lives are affected. well i think you know the people as strongly affected by the sanctions and even they could see
5:06 pm
a dettori acting economy long before actually the u.s. pulled out of it i think that there's still a strong support for the government amongst the religious part of the population in iran but we travel to iran for the last couple of days we talked to many people and the vast majority told us that they're not satisfied with the performance of the rouhani government they blame their government for mismanagement and for corruption there were people who even told us that if they had the chance to they would like to leave the country in order to give their kids a brighter future so people are really tired of fighting for survival they expect their government to act and if it means that you know the government gets back to the table and negotiate i think the people would be fine with it in order to have the sanctions lifted and for the country to prosper economically but you're the iranian leadership is showing no signs of wanting to do that they're very very defiant. well the iranian government as
5:07 pm
rouhani said today i mean they will try to to still sell their oil in order to get revenues i mean they will be allowed to do so because the u.s. government granted waivers to eight countries among them china india south korea or turkey but the iranian government is also seeking for other measures to sell their oil there are reports of big stores and tankers at the coast in the persian gulf and there's also reports of rain investments just switched off they reda in order to not being not being tracked so they could sell their oil somewhere else the u.s. established a task force trying to prevent the iranian government from doing so so i think what we're going to see within the next couple of weeks is kind of a hide and seek game between washington and tehran all right so the sanctions may not live up to the hype we'll have to wait and see meanwhile reporting from tehran
5:08 pm
city of correspondence in your past i thank you. i mean while iran says it's working with europe to set up a mechanism to bypass those sanctions let's go to brussels now where you said terry schultz is standing by terry good to see you so tell us what is the e.u. doing. what the e.u. is doing and what it is saying today are two different things we know that the european union maintains that it is setting up this special purpose vehicle is what it calls it a way of making alternative payments that would hopefully in mind by pass u.s. sanctions and allow commerce to continue with tehran that's their goal and that's what they say they're doing but today you wouldn't have known it spokespeople today from the council to the commission are saying this is a stay tuned moment you've heard what we're planning and today we're just going to basically wait for things to play out they were definitely not making any any loud
5:09 pm
statements today about. the sanctions which make things very much more difficult for the european commission to accomplish its goals of keeping the iran deal together both the nuclear deal and the business deals that european companies are now doing with tehran and there are so many business deals terry when most european companies that are here to the u.s. iran sanctions or not. most of those companies have already announced that they're pulling out the large companies anyway companies like to haul. siemens and we're going to see more of those i think it's pretty well expected if you listen to the u.s. government spokesman the u.s. special representative on iran brian hook he says that you know the companies have mostly complied already and that the u.s. may not even need to impose sanctions on anyone because they have already made the decisions he said if you're a c.e.o. and you're given the choice to do business with the u.s. or ron is going to be the quickest decision you ever make so the u.s.
5:10 pm
is very confident that that european companies are going to follow their orders and pull out of iran even as the european union says it wants very much to keep these european companies. doing business with the regime in order to keep the nuclear deal intact. reported from brussels thank you terry. meanwhile in the united states democrats and republicans are making their final appeals to voters ahead of the midterm elections where it should take place tomorrow cheers day's poll is widely seen as a referendum on donald trump's administration widespread dissatisfaction over the trunk presidency has fueled a surge in women and minority candidates standing for election across the u.s. now in the deeply conservative texas one woman is hoping to channel that discontent into an election victory and a seat in the house of representatives or any every weekend ana maria ramos

5:12 pm

5:13 pm
united for trump the president stands for their values they want a strong economy at all costs and are against immigration and abortion the world of the trumpets is clearly structured there is one hero trump and many villains going . oh so here's a man that's encouraging the entire country the only reason that you hear otherwise is because the media is an arm of the democrat party in this country and that means very anti america and they are anti troll because wants everyone to do well two worlds that seem incompatible and in the final days before us midterm elections both are fighting to. again ground. now to some of the other stories making news around the world. around eighty people have been kidnapped from

5:16 pm

5:19 pm
a new budget but we'll have to see and wait that's the attitude here but surely the italian topic overshadows all the other topics at this meeting what happens if the italians don't play if the italian stand strong on this and defy the european commission. that's a first for the european union here particularly for the euro zone countries the nineteen countries that have the euro what would happen then is that the commission files a plan to to hit italy with fines that will have to give the some jobs from the eurozone finance minister at their meeting in december so until the thirteenth of november italy is still less time to come around and then finally the heads of state and government would have to if there is thumbs up for fines to come italy's way because of the ministers may have a bit of math to do but does this really have the potential to create market turmoil are the potential is there seeing that italy is your of the euro zone's
