why are people more concerned. through the first g.w. . this is the life from. this partial withdrawal from the twenty fifth. deal. will stop acting on some of its commitments and sets a sixty day deadline for. the move comes amid mounting tension with the united states also on the program south africans cast their ballots in national elections
7:01 pm
many voters say they're disappointed with the building things fail to tackle corruption and. so will my punish the party at the polls. time the big day for britain's newest royal. great grandmother the queen. coming. i'm sure to the program. iran says it is planning to stop complying with parts of the landmark nuclear deal struck with world powers in twenty fifteen president hassan rouhani is announcement came exactly a year after the united states withdraw unilaterally from the agreement the deal was designed to limit iran's ability to produce nuclear fuel tanks change for relief from sanctions president rouhani now says his country will resume enriching
7:02 pm
and stockpiling uranium in sixty days if world powers fail to negotiate new terms. though my mum didn't and my our nation should know that we have not withdrawn from the nuclear deal they should not think that the nuclear deal does not exist anymore . the nuclear deal is still in place but today we will flip and show the other side of the coin the nuclear deal has told us in its articles twenty six and thirty six that if the other party violates it we can also reduce our commitments at any level today we announced a reduction not a withdrawal. now when i spoke with political analyst adnan to batter by a little so what's behind this move the situation that we have right now is that iran is emphasizing the fact that it has no dividend from this agreement while itself is committed to it and abiding by its regulations and by its obligations but the
7:03 pm
economic dividend is missing and this is an unstable situation that iran can no longer bear like that so what does it want world powers to do. in fact to come up with they're part of the of the nuclear bargain of the nuclear agreement which means that international trade with iran despite u.s. sanctions that have been unilaterally reimposed are in fact compensated for by a trade mechanism that the europeans have set up but this has to become functional and operational so that iran has received its end of the bargain so these now require germany in the u.k. and france and russia and china it requires all of those powers to do something about u.s. sanctions against iran will they. this is the important question here i mean in fact we can see that political statements and grievances towards washington's
7:04 pm
decision to unilaterally leave withdraw from the agreement these statements have been voiced but the the action has so far been limited so the expectation from tehran will be that within the next sixty days some form of concrete action in terms of oil sales of iran and the transfer of of oil income to iran will be made possible so that iran sees some benefit in complying to the nuclear agreement ok so this is what iran wants but like i said this is going to require. essentially europe and russia to say to america back off or to make this this pilot mechanism more effective america doesn't seem to want to back off and if europe could have made that payment mechanism more effective now it would already be so what's going to happen. that's a good point i mean many are saying what should happen within the next sixty days that couldn't have been happening before i guess the difference that we have right
7:05 pm
now is that while before today's announcement by president rouhani the e's three plus russia and china seems to think that iran has no choice but to abide by the nuclear agreement iran has now outlined a clear roadmap as to how a gradual withdrawal could look like so that it ups the pressure and that the europeans view more necessity to save this agreement because it is in their security interest and therefore maybe do more to do that but as you say we have to remain skeptical about it thank you so. so to batter by in terre south africa's presidential and parliamentary elections are underway as unsettled i'm opposed to his ruling and same party watching that prove all right since plummet as he struggles to make godown promises to fight corruption and revive the economy the mc has won every election since the country emerged from white minority rule twenty five years ago this year is expected to be no different except that analysts believe the margin of victory will be small.
