6:02 pm
yeah after the march that was peaceful and where a lot of family and elderly people took part younger people started to block major roads on the columns side of hong-kong this road here nathan road is one of the main traffic areas of of quaalude and at some point they were facing the police police were trying to push them back they were using peyton's and they arrested some of them now there's quite a bit of distance between the protesters and the police both sides are waiting what is going to happen next we're not seeing the kind of tension that we've seen in other all cajuns when protesters and the police clash and either the protesters who were really angry the other days they are a bit more relaxed today and also the police is more restrained in their use of force but they determined to push the protesters away. but here is what protesters
6:03 pm
exactly demanding. there it all started with this extradition bill that would have allowed for extradition is to mainland china something people saw as a violation of hong kong's rule of law this is still a demand this bill has been shelved it's not been scrapped so this is still on the table but it's broader now because these these 3 weeks 4 weeks of demonstrations have of course heated up a lot of emotions in hong kong especially the days when police and protesters clashed and the police was perceived as using excessive violence to disperse protesters so people are now demanding an investigation into the police they are demanding on a broader scale a review of the government system of hong kong that people perceive as unfair and not responsible to the hong kong people but he has been in hong kong thank you.

iran has warned that it will begin enriching uranium beyond the limits set by its unravelling 2050 nuclear deal with world powers was condemned internationally french president obama called the decision a violation of the nuclear deal germany iran to stop undermining the agreement to press conference iran said in 60 days it would reduce its commitments even further unless the pact signatories helped to protect it from your u.s. sanctions tehran's decision comes a year after the president donald trump withdrew the u.s. from the deal aimed at curbing iran's nuclear program a move that has led to heightened tensions in the middle east. i'm now joined by markus khan from the german institute for international and security affairs welcome to the studio because let's let's talk about the technical aspects 1st breaching the limits of your rainy i'm in richmond what does that actually mean their original question is a cornerstone of the cape c.p.o.
6:05 pm
it's a drawing complaint comprehensive plan of action under this regulations are and is restricted to enriching a level 3.67 percent and indicated that it would be ready to enrich uncle 5 all you 20 percent and 20 percent is a critical junction here because from 20 percent on once you can talk about nuclear capable your aim with can be used for a nuclear weapon what is iran hoping to achieve here i think we have to keep in mind that as an old not legally withdrawn from the from from the agreement like the united states has done one year ago so my point would be some kind of playing with the regulations and some kind of violations of the agreement so my on our lives as would be is more political single political signal to the hopeless ignatz henri's day it's the europeans germany great britain france china and russia to step up
6:06 pm
efforts to keep our end in iran in within the remit meaning that would they think that to facilitate the benefits of the agreement being trading oil. that that signal apparently has been received by israel they've been the 1st to react at 7. iran is violated solemn promise under the u.n. security council not to enrich uranium beyond a certain level the ritual of uranium is made for one reason and one reason only for the creation of atomic bombs. the leaders of the p 5 plus one promised and committed to snap back sanctions the minute iran did it just. where are you. strong statement there from the benjamin is a now how. can this deal be safe and what could be done to save it i had to save and i had to say it but i'm afraid instead it's not legally dead hit but i think the the signs at the wall are pretty clear the unless the europeans are capable of
6:07 pm
providing the benefits of the agreement meaning facilitating the right of oil and financial means would come with it to iran think we're going to see that legally around will withdraw in the foreseeable future maybe in one month or 2 months what does that mean with this brewing conflict for this group brewing conflict with the us i think it will accelerate the tensions within the regime with around leaving the room sanctions will snap bank international sanctions which then would be applied by the other signatory states as well and we're basically back before 2 procedures before 2015 without any agreement and that would raise the concerns about iran for presumably nuclear power to a nuclear weapon. combine the german institute for international security fastening very much. now to some of the other stories making headlines around the world talks
