7:04 pm
are high iran valen revenge what do you think happens next well that's that's part of the speculation that is going on now iran will not be able to leave this an answer that's much of a fact there is pressure also internally there is pressure from the iraqis to find a response possibly a military response to this and it's after all a high ranking general national i can which has been killed by the americans in this attack so there will be something we have seen a period of mourning so far so people can expect some kind of response from tomorrow on what's iran has in the past been careful to calculate this response so i do you think that might mean it could be probably confined to the region maybe hitting american all u.s. ally targets in the region again probably using proxies so that it kind of maybe be traced directly to iran so there is this this vagueness around previous attacks
7:05 pm
which we have seen this wouldn't lead the u.s. president probably to to some different conclusion than from what he's done so far but iran is able to play or is looking to play a long game and they know that they are there in the region they will stay in the region for ever that's the country in iran how do you see the state of diplomacy right now i mean let's talk about you know what's actually going on in the back rooms the nuclear deal for example is there any chance that this might be saved. it's quite no longer life these days i would have to say the nuclear deal with what iran. yesterday although this is not a direct response to the attacks iran had been saying that they wanted to pull step by step pull out of the nuclear deal so far as the europeans the russians and the chinese cannot live up to their side of the deal so this is not very unexpected to the country i would say that the reaction on the nuclear deal could have been
7:06 pm
harsher if it were a response to the attack on the general celeb money so the iranians are saying we are still open for this we just want the deal to work for the u.n. the u.n. backed nuclear deal on one side and the regional situation on the others the europeans have to take both sides into account now how do you see the situation playing out for iraq because we know that this is where the attack took place we have the parliament now calling for foreign troops to leave u.s. president on trying threatening from from his side if that action is indeed taken what happens for iraq next well it's a most unfortunate situation i mean just just remember that a couple of weeks and months ago people were taking to the streets in iraq protesting against the government and against iranian influence on the government they were being shot for that and now with this out poor and also of indignation on the iraqi side against the violation of sovereignty there is a realignment of sorts with iran because they are suffering they're both suffering it wasn't just the iranian general who got killed but also iraqi militia leaders so
