8:01 pm
say they're disappointed with the buildings and cities fighting to tackle corruption and quality so. welcome to the program. iran says it's planning to stop complying with very or part with parts of a landmark a nuclear deal struck with world powers in twenty fifteen percent has some rouhani said not spent decades actually a year after the united states unilaterally from the green the deal was designed libertarians ability to continue their fuel in exchange for relief from sanctions as rouhani now says his country will resume enriching and stop the write in in sixty days if world powers fail to negotiate terms. for them of the doing and must our nation should know that we have not withdrawn from the nuclear deal they should
8:02 pm
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 i will discuss this with a political analyst and to batter by others 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 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 there's now requires a germany in the u.k. and france and russia and china it requires all of those powers to do something about us sanctions against iran will hey. this is the important question here i mean in fact we can see that political statements and grievances towards washington's decision to unilaterally leave withdraw from the agreement these statements have been voiced but the the action has so far been limited so the
8:04 pm
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. a century 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 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 now is that while before today's announcement by president rouhani the east three plus russia and china seems to think that iran has no choice but to abide by the
8:05 pm
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. i was to better by now answer some of the other stories making news around the world that will trump is used presidential privilege to block favorite piece of information demanded by congress the white house wants of suppressing material including big parts of the force on russian interference in the u.s. . house of representatives committee has launched contempt proceedings against attorney general build a failing to turn the documents. pakistani christian woman who spent eight years on death row falsely charged with blasphemy has left the country officials say has arrived in canada to be united with her daughters. from the charges last year
