9:06 pm
european union with a big problem because turkey succession bait was also always its most important leverage over turkey now that it's seen as e.u. is now looking for new leverage and this is why i think they are opening up the talk so if a customs union modernization and possible leave of visa liberalization they see this as providing very important leverage going forward and that's important given the fact that they are looking to turkey to honor its migration and we heard that that is seen as a priority for the e.u. that turkey continues to know all of the parts of the migration deal oh aren't you just use dorian joins with the latest tonight from istanbul during as always thank you. our here's a look now at some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world egypt and sudan so he talks aimed at resolving a dispute with ethiopia over a dam on the river nile have ended without progress ethiopia is constructing the

9:13 pm
summerland western germany has become the 1st state to start loosening restrictions elsewhere scientists and some politicians are reporting for stricter measures among them chancellor merkel's conservative party leader i'm a large share he's suggesting a temporary tightening of restrictions until enough people have been vaccinated for discipline. until that point in time and we are talking about 2 or 3 weeks we should make another effort to limit public life if you can show its common something mesh with criticism also from the opposition. for over a year the only thing policymakers have been able to come up with is shutting down public life telling people to stay at home locking down selling the same old policy with a new slogan what it. all stars he's are hoping to accelerate the country's sluggish
9:14 pm
vaccine rollout by allowing 35 carriers in general practitioners across the country to start administering the jobs this week but in the capital berlin the vaccination there 1st has experienced a further snag with deliveries delayed by washing sarsi is called technical problems to vaccination center start to close on tuesday because they run out of doses frustration by the situation the people in germany are calling for a unified approach. the way the 3rd wave is looking it will be even more devastating than the 2nd got so i think there will be another hard lock down politician somehow can't seem to come up with anything else they will just lock down until everyone is vaccinated. we should 1st implement the measures they've already agreed upon they keep changing the rules then they disagree then everyone does their own paying it's hard to understand.
9:15 pm
if our leaders manage to stop arguing then there will be a hard luck down this probably no other way to solve us. but the countries that are all political system is getting in the way both timidly it's the states that decide on and implement the measures for now chancellor angela merkel is not intervening but she has warned off if the situation demands this she could try to take matters into her own hands. in germany in the pandemic you're watching news coming up next in the show the communist lawmaker pushing back against a crippling crackdown that will take you to the russian city of sorrows hope to meet the politician who says he will not be muzzled is coming up in just a moment. iranian representatives see a 1st round of talks aimed at reviving the 2050 nuclear deal were constructive
9:16 pm
international negotiators are meeting in vienna in a bid to bring the u.s. and iran back into compliance with the agreement the trumpet ministration turned its back on the deal back in 28 teams american and iranian envoys are not meeting face to face not even in the same room but it appears there was some progress with further talks now planned for 5 it. starting on tuesday delegates in this hotel began discussions on reviving the nuclear agreement with iran envoys from france germany britain russia and china are in talks with iran and acting as intermediaries with the u.s. . iran has high expectations. on state television a government spokesman projects confidence. that he says the talks are a good sign for the future but he says iran has conditions one is that sanctions must be lifted a spokesman for the u.s.
9:17 pm
state department says they will work to ensure that both sides can return to the agreement any unusual return but in return for an end to sanctions the u.s. is demanding that iran stop supporting terrorist groups and on the part of the united states the international nuclear agreement was put into place in 2015 on the mutual understanding there would be no iranian nuclear program and in return restrictions on iran's economy would be eased 3 years later u.s. president trump unilaterally terminated the program for iran the stakes are high the country wants to sell oil again and hopes for an end to economic sanctions and for more now i'm joined from los angeles by a solid rod a senior research fellow at the national iranian american council it's good to have you on the program we've already heard that further talks are scheduled for friday are you encouraged by what is coming out of vienna. absolutely i think you know
9:18 pm
there was an initial slow pace of the biden ministration to take certain steps and this was a key promise of foreign policy that by then supporters expect it and now we're actually seeing those steps be taken and you know right now you have to expect groups that have been tasked with looking at how both parties both the united states and iran can return to full compliance one focused on lifting sanctions on the other focused on nuclear issues so everything you're seeing right now is encouraging the fact that those groups are going to continue hashing that out and that the joint commission will meet again on friday again gives us that sort of optimism that we were lacking in the 1st couple of months of the biting ministration so you can describe it to do list for the iranians and for the americans but we know that the representatives of both countries they're not even sitting in the same room at the moment what do you think it will take to get them to be face to face. well something to keep in mind is that the united states as of right now is still not actually a party to the deal when president trump former president trump withdrew from the
9:19 pm
deal in may of 2018 to this day the united states does not return to iran and all the other parties are still parties to the deal and they're the ones that are having direct direct discussions the fact that we have these intermediaries i mean that's the entire point of internationalism and bringing a group together for diplomacy so i don't think we should be discouraged from that i think that once there's a clear picture on both sides of what steps need to be taken to get both into full compliance then you'll see the direct negotiations as well president biden ran on the good returning the u.s. to the nuclear deal does this foreign policy does it have support across the u.s. political spectrum absolutely actually one of the things that's fascinating about this particular policy is while we know we talk about a context in which the united states is particularly maybe polarized and divided politically this is actually something that has support across the spectrum in a economists you go poll at the beginning of march biden entrance voters were asked
9:20 pm
about their feelings about a threat of a nuclear iran and there's you know clearly in the american populous there is the feeling that that is a threat that they do not want you know you don't want iran to have a nuclear weapon but 84 percent of biden were to support supported direct negotiations and 54 percent of trumpeters supported direct negotiations with here to resolve that issue so there's certainly bipartisan support and really support across the american political spectrum to resolve this issue through diplomacy. as all wrong with the national iranian american council ms roberts good to have you want to program we appreciate your time your insights tonight thank you thank you for having. well the russian newspaper is reporting that jailed opposition politician alexina valving has been moved to a sick ward the kremlin critic was jailed back in february and has been on a hunger strike since wednesday to protest the lack of medical care and with parliamentary elections less than 6 months away authorities are cracking down on
9:21 pm
kremlin critics but they could be facing new threats including from within the traditionally loyal communist party really sure when traveled to the southwestern city of saratov where she met a local politician who's determined not to be silenced. in the footsteps of lenin. sees himself as a politician of the people just like his communist forefathers but he has a huge social media presence. because you tube channel has over a 1000000 subscribers fight for your rights is the motto here. his social media accounts show him fighting against corruption and for more equality including as a representative in the regional south of parliament and beyond that ankara doesn't shy away from criticizing the kremlin and the ruling united russia party. it's your actions the actions of the russian government of your president of your united
9:22 pm
russia party you gave our national riches away to oligarchs. and now one that i think that is facing what he says is a political campaign against him local politicians have accused him of corruption for monetizing his social media accounts he could face a criminal case that could prevent him from running in the upcoming dumas elections . the government is afraid of people uniting uniting around a concrete political program which provides an alternative to the course they have taken. throughout my whole career during the many hours of live streams online or in my videos i never asked people to follow nicholai blundering co. i'm just asking people to be political if you don't like what i say follow your own line the main thing is to not give up. in russia there are traces of the soviet
9:23 pm
past everywhere including in south of the communist party is still popular here and across the country even though critics say the party ultimately follows the kremlin line but even russia's so-called systemic opposition parties have recently become an outlet for people's anger at the government. last. here the arrest of a popular governor from the right wing liberal democratic party led to weeks of protests in russia's far eastern city of how. every monday he has his office hours the 35 year old spends most of the day with constituents people stand in line for support with issues from benefit applications to problems with corruption. i've placed my hopes and. i heard how he talks to people and i've heard his speeches. in russia they don't like people who tell the truth it's always been that way so if he's trying to get the truth out to people naturally he becomes undesirable to the government at this and you can see how he
9:24 pm
acts at all as parliamentary session c.i.'s uncomfortable questions the authorities don't like that but. experts agree that the kremlin might try to keep people like out of federal politics. ahead of the duma elections the kremlin makes clear arrangements with the main opposition parties about which candidates can run and what results they should get they don't want to let anyone in who will rock the boat. but despite attempts to intimidate him but isn't ready to give up. people today are hungry for justice and for truth they don't trust the authorities on the whole. i went into politics to prove to citizens that lawmakers can work honestly. the choice. is already preparing his campaign for the duma elections and he hopes he will be allowed a fair fight. our take a look at this in iceland hundreds of hikers have been evacuated from the site of
