unprecedented scenes for a normally air rich region. who says town in southwest iran is one of the latest provinces facing mercy evacuations as fresh downpours christie is hear about new flooding. further north in the rest of province extreme floods and cities and submerged homes. the water was up to here there's the market. some locals aren't waiting for help they start repairs wishing to return to normal life as soon as possible. or laws just provide dogs with cement and equipment so we can do the work faster. relief efforts are stalled aid agencies say the u.s. is partly to blame according to the iranian red crescent washington sanction on terror and have blocked any foreign financial aid to enter the country on his state
t.v. iran's president said last week that it was a quote disgrace. that they create show ha ha ha bites of what the americans wished for everyone will see that our big nation our officials are no armed forces walking together when we construct the ruins of a hot albeit hot all heavy rain since mushed has inundated almost two thousand communities causing damages split hundreds of millions of us. with its outposts showing new signs of easing many iranians are bracing for the worst. we have their claims that u.s. sanctions are hampering relief efforts to flood victims a last me get out foreign minister zarif accused as american counterpart mike of fake news for saying the u.s. was quote ready to assist through the international red cross that if treated as
the i.c.r.c. president noted the requests of gone through save any funds due to u.s. sanctions u.s. should own up to its economic terrorism the red cross has denied making those remarks a cover mother and a former deputy head of it ons department of and bottom and says the world is ignoring the disaster he tweets the level of international attention to it on unprecedented floods is surprisingly low people of iran are in need of help and attention regardless of international politics let's get more from tehran joining us now is i mean to have us see he's if he's tehran correspondent i mean good to see you what is the situation in iran right now. hello and thank you for having me those situations in iran right now i can see is that well the flaws has reached southwestern parts of iran those are the risk operations going on and who's a star has basically declared him to be in
a state of crisis right now and it's mostly because the new body governor of chad has a flooded and accuracy is. going toward the city and threatening more cities in capital of start which is home to about more than a million and a half people. know it in foreign minister moment jobs or it has accused the u.s. and said that the sanctions imposed by the united states are harming and hinder the grief and rescue operations what are you seeing on the ground. well our i would say that the sanctions in the are harming the efforts well it basically is that well first of all you does depend on we are asking them if you as the u.s. state the bar to say that humanitarian aid is not sanctioned that is true on its own in theory but banking transactions are basically impossible not aid can
possibly come in iranian red cross and there's reason to claim that not all foreign aid all financial foreign aid so far has been received ever since the flights largely middle of march and that is basically because. sanctions what everyone has got so far it seems to be only equipment and it's very small and that's a month or two and cash which is bashed badly needed as not only yet it seems like the only. transaction channel right now is german red cross and seemingly organisations are supposed brought with them so it can get to russia but that still is not definite so. sanctions iran do have a start i would say but just the scale of this disaster are do turds of the country underwater two thirds of the country flooded is there an argument to say that the
government potentially did not see this disaster coming. well i would say that the government failed to prepare for this disaster it's not just anticipating it and. burden falls equally also it's everyone in control and i would say because the situation we have with deforestation the situation we have with enormous amount of downs situation we have with. unwarranted our non-licensed constructions where the rivers used to be because if you know iran has been in a time of drought for several years now no one has abated anything company so with that people people say they got the illegal warrants and places to build. buildings alongside with you the rivers used to beat which creates a large rubber off this is that source that you see on the ground so the old with
all that we could iran could have been if i was there but it is a peking guess i wouldn't be so sure because some of the images that have been pretty much seen all over at shiraz and that there's aster happening let's tend to write thanks so much for that are better left for leave it there for the time in our house our very air speaking to us from don thank you so much next to thailand where millions of young men were numb this pond how they will spend the next six months to two years of their lives for an estimated two hundred thousand of them it will mean serving in the military its finance and all military draft which sees a male citizens age twenty one called up for service for a period of up to two has many don't want to go and pray they are not among the chosen few. this time of year to pay are not trying is a popular place to pray. pass a corn rocks three meet
