skyjacking you see the countries of latin america have a common history as being on the bad end of brutal western european imperialism and when the president of a former colony could just be abducted at the will of the you would have his plane search it sure makes you feel like you're still under the lash of foreign control doesn't it to any of you think for a moment that any officials who are so willing to ground morality would dare to do the same thing air force one i don't think so morale is clearly was treated like some sort of second class president and despite this insult they didn't even catch oden this is what i call a double fail but that's just my opinion. well . it's technology innovations all the developments around russia we've got the future are covered.
5:30 am
hello welcome to sophie and co i'm so afraid shevardnadze if you don't controversial nuclear ambition has cast a cloud over the middle east now one spec'ing down into ron but a new president made create a window of opportunity for the long stalled nuclear talks the only agency that can shed light on what is happening inside iran is the international atomic energy agency says they can actually step into that country's nuclear facility as well at least into some of them. with more that is can sell or consume with a nuclear iran fuel peace and prosperity for a nation. with its neighbors. are facilities multiply and capabilities grow well sanctions economic lifelines after changing its president will be more open
5:31 am
to allowing inspection of its nuclear backyard to prove its plans are pure and sensible and that's while fighting for the right for the peaceful iran doesn't get built. we gauge the reaction. of the. he's here man of the head of the international atomic energy agency it's really great to have your show today thank you very much for your baiting me so you know that nearly elected to iranian president hassan rouhani personally because he used to be a nuclear negotiator what do you think of him what kind of person. he is that with . a very good knowledge of. the shoes and. look you for. the new government you're wrong. did. to resolve for the iran nuclear issues through. diplomatic means who will continue
5:32 am
dialogue would you say he's easy to talk to we don't know yet and the role of the agency. is not to speak great but we will continue on that. constructive that with the rome to find the concrete solution just because of all you're a very experienced diplomat and now you've become the new had of the i.a.e.a. what is your instincts tell you is this someone president rouhani that could move the iranian nuclear negotiations from a debt point they're all over in a month on this issue we have a long history and this is some very complicated issue. and the best thing for now not to speculate but. stout. and then with them and then get korea iraq before now i don't help. but by having
5:33 am
contact with the new government i think we'll have prospect for the future. what about for right now can you clarify for us where you at iran and the agency what is your main stumbling point there on a couple of issues and. said in the past that yes we have differences but these differences on the obstacle to reach agreement. on discussing with iran with. how do you that in mind we have the differences but it is not impossible. that gap will continue that under discussion. we are not yet. into discussion with the wrong on specific moments and i went to meet a way to meet differently for all discussions with them could you. i'm telling
5:34 am
us what the main difference is i must because we hear a lot in the press. talks are going in circles we have differences and someone really understands what exactly is the difference because you mind telling us. the truth i couldn't tell the details and the reason is that. with the. practice of phone diplomacy we do not disclose on the details of. negotiations if i do that i lose confidence and no one most of them were shared with me or with the idea of this i have been saying that. they need to be. should be able to undertake if if relief cation we need to do a job and if. too much then we kind of hope and if we cannot do the job it is not the benefit of the wrong nor the agency nor the international
5:35 am
community. how to organize a victory for the crucial point. you know benjamin netanyahu says that iran is very close to getting a bomb the red line is almost there obama has somewhat a different assessment of this issue what is your assessment i mean i know you cannot speculate but you surely have your own thoughts we are not making the now this is. what the making of the international on ideation verifying the peaceful nature of activities from the. we have been really fighting. with these. under the safeguards of these activities under the guise. of us what is that. to produce. the radium is increasing the amount of produced.
5:36 am
is also increasing on the other hand we do not. understand perfectly. this and this is the problem and you know what i'm asking about assessment and speculations because i was reading a lot of articles beforehand and two of the very well respected independent analysts they predict that most probably iran is and will is very close and will reach the critical cap ability very soon it will have at least one bomb before any western intelligence agency or i. will know that what if what if he missed the bomb . are various elements but we think. there is a big change we can detect it. in a reasonable amount of time. regarding the amount of food or in which to range of development it depends on various elements how many centrifuges they use with
5:37 am
iran. the conversion. of radium to another form so there are various elements or estimate what would be the moment of radium in storage so that these are the reason why i say we cannot speak of a term out of all the nuclear facilities in iran which one raises your concern most of all. i will not say. but again i would like to say that. a certain number of these under safeguards i do not know the issue of. of. at this. point second of all on regarding. this we continue to verify that they. staying in.
5:38 am
but the capacity is increasing for the enrichment of uranium in addition the construction of a heavy water reactor is making progress these are the facts. is it fair to say that at this particular point your agency doesn't have a proof that iran wants to make a bomb right we have never said that iran has nuclear weapons we have never said that. decided to grab their plans to develop nuclear weapons or but what we sent is that iran has the questions to which they have to. and without clarifying these questions we cannot give the clean bill of health this is where we stand now have you personally been to iran have you. yes i visited the
5:39 am
wrong before i became. i became the director jerome and i had this question with mr jellyby you know russia is helping iran fulfill its nuclear ambitions but at the same time it is the main facilitator in talks and negotiations with the west would you say it's effective it is more of a help of a hit or a hindrance the. first regarding their wish. the p five plus one. countries going to members of the united nations security council and germany. having discussion away from all iran russia is of course. a member of this p five plus one discussion with rome russia has an important role of. i hope the p.
5:40 am
five plus one. will make the vote. so it's ok with you that russia is helping iran to fulfill its nuclear ambitions. for the i.a.e.a. the russians are very for the member of the i.a.e.a. russia. of all member of the p five plus one. and p. five plus one devil he's up there we put them on someone of your predecessor mohamed el baradei actually said that notwithstanding what you think of iran's position you need to address their sense of insecurity which means that he is surrounded by a country that was nuclear capacity is capabilities and they have a presence of american troops in their region so they feel like they need to somehow answer to that what do you say to that to that that one week. a month of this is. i deeply respect
5:41 am
him most of all. on the basic objectives of the i.a.e.a. and with regard to the nonproliferation it was possibly the belief that all the material is the us of course we how important the objectives are like good. they're going to go corp nuclear power but with respect to iran you grace was providing information. information to member states to foresee the there just isn't the most important thing for me it can mano with the director general of. our guests today coming up next. how real is it and what good are sanctions so that it's to people who are hurt the most states.
5:42 am
what defines a country's success. faceless figures of economic growth. for a factual standard of living and.
5:43 am
clip. you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realize that everything you thought
5:44 am
you knew you don't know i'm charged markham is a big picture. welcome back to sophie and co now what's been looking at iran's nuclear ambition with the you know the director general of international atomic energy agency israel is the one state most intensively concerned with see it on its nuclear were shipments saying the bomb weighs already what they need on its reach but in reality does iran want to bomb and how close to a bomb does it stand let's gauge how concerned it's to international community
5:45 am
right now. nuclear iran what stands behind it a dozen nuclear research and development facilities so motion to inspections but crucially not all doesn't run harbor secret ambitions facilities the world has yet to see some claim iran does. the implants are presented as peaceful but without access to iran's nuclear backyard how can the world be sure global nuclear suspicion is further fueled by missile tests putting delivery power control rounds tons bush last does to run how close is it to the bomb in two thousand and ten the u.n. nuclear watchdog declared for the first time there was evidence of iran's drive towards new. weapons iran's enrichment is already up to twenty percent enough for a peaceful. eighty percent great without the world knowing the problem is the gap
5:46 am
between water ron said and iran does human society over nuclear weapons they are so twentieth century it is the most brutal weapon that can be used against others. severe international sanctions have sense the iranian economy down leading to double digit inflation and unemployment western companies show iran leaving its key industries to crumble without much needed investment. but despite this iran's government seems determined to follow the atomic power regardless of the price people are paying the hardships they suffer what can the global nuclear watchdog do to dispel the rumors and clear the air. you know you've stated so many times that you know you only want to focus on the technical part but they are fortunate like you are under the limelight because whatever you say sort of bizarre
5:47 am
political dissent discussions are decisions for example there are some like israel who would rather have direct confrontation with iran how do you protect your agency from. thing for me. to stay impartial and functional in order to stay in show i have to stick to the principle that what principle. that is to respect the rule and number inflation comprehensive safe and easy stand also if there is any u.n. security council resolutions in this regard that is also. what i'm asking to all the countries not only won't but to all countries needs to fully implemented. that really want rules by sticking to this. neutral. stunned i can state. neutral of course. i believe that the.
5:48 am
pinnacle of ideation but you mentioned the environment in which we are working is very political and therefore it's important to respect that principle i would say. it's a organization that is working in a very political environment so let's say if it is route or when it is route will strike iran will i in any way feel responsible not responsible guilty because they know this is a big possibility i do not speak late for now what i am doing. to the issue by diplomatic means. it's not good for me to make comments on. that they go. which is stockholm international peace research institute estimates that israel now maybe have around eighty nuclear bombs which is pretty
5:49 am
intimidating. i know you don't speculate but you know at this hinders your negotiation process with with iran maybe that's why they're still reluctant you know to talk and to negotiate and to make progress because they're thinking israel has a nuclear bombs or the want to do israel those other countries from which other members of the are you gay out of state is to implement the comprehensive safeguard that is the only thing. relevant obligations if there is to me that is the only thing. you want do you think israel should sign up for n.p.t. . that is some of the question you need to ask. but. it is clear they don't have the intention to sign people now but is the agency making any effort right now in that direction do you think do you think we can ever
5:50 am
see nuclear transparent israel because they're also very intimidated considering the countries that they are surrounded with they feel isolated and secure as well the idea e.t.a. and myself has been supporting the nuclear weapons free zone to east. we are ready to help them in. two thousand and one general conference the. decision to ask the director general to host a forum on nuclear weapon free zone in middle east and the objective is to learn from experience from other nuclear weapon presumes in two thousand or eleven. i. haven't i hosted. some of. our other states as well as. participated
5:51 am
this is a very difficult issue and the position of countries are different still or we could have a very constructive for all discussions. despite the difference between despite the. background where you can see it discuss this issue in that constructive way still it was more d.c. it took some yes to simply more than most of this forum but i just would like to out there you. are making a contribution. to the date of the establishment of on the nuclear weapon freeze on middle east. you know israel united states list iran is one of the main threats and israel is going over concerns because in. you know so much more than anyone else about what's going on inside iran what would you advise president obama what your advice to president obama would be how should he proceed. i think the most
5:52 am
important thing for now to all. build on the computer. restore the international confidence is very important and because of the luck of. it is very difficult to make on the steps forward in order to. confidence transparency is most needed so it's really up to give more transparency not obama's job but you would tell him to what wait don't rush to things and maybe everything could be dealt with diplomacy. diplomacy. is some. of the way out of my own and they do the addressing and other countries including the united states is the solution
5:53 am
through diplomatic means so. for now is to encourage. that also between b five plus one. and the wrong you know you saying iran should be more transparent but i read in the press that iran is that cruising your agency to actually siding with americans and giving them some information that only your agency would have access to what do you say to that accusation no bull no or no basis at all. are you optimistic about where it's going with iran from now on. we again speak with a. gun and the strength of the on the these two state. we are not. the only made well known for them. prospect. is to go to the grown send these because on the ground collecting the information of the precise show they do the information with members face to
5:54 am
forcing the decision making and finally you're here in russia for a conference what do you expect from this conference what you think could there be any tangible results. is to they can place. the. very time that he might not to over two years have seen they just sit and. one of the leaders of the nuclear technology. minister. ending this meeting so. very good opportunity to do. nuclear power and i think. good result will be achieved i mean good thing by member states will be.
5:55 am
our guest was the director general of i ate here with sophie and co i will see you next time thanks for watching. what is the future of democracy in the middle east in the wake of the coup d'etat in egypt is this reaching into a vicious cycle uprisings or brutal suppression what about the claim islam and democracy are incompatible and just the west really have an interest in seeing the people of the middle east free to decide their own destiny. this journey is not about seeing the world. it's a mission that i could to myself project to succeed if i stay in the same place
5:56 am
