the carrot or the stick countries that unite in praising this story deal with iran differ on what led to the landmark agreement with the use of sanctions the main point of contention also. that the policy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure storage. the u.s. fails to appease skeptics at home and some allies abroad as it's part of a do you attract a flurry of criticism in washington and tel aviv. police used tear gas and sounds of protesters in the ukrainian capital kiev as the government breaks away from a trade deal with the e.u. right now you're looking at live pictures from kenya as riot police move in on the
3:01 am
crowds. this is going to live in moscow with me marina. world powers agreed on a groundbreaking deal with iran but opinions differ on what led to the long awaited success while some countries attribute the breakthrough to diplomacy others insist it's thanks to the pressure of sanctions a compromise was found records on the talks and their outcome. it's a deal that say you did diplomats for a decade. and as the crucial make or break iran neatly a talks continued into the night details of how they were going for leading the journalists camped out in geneva so we waited and waited and waited while diplomats from six
3:02 am
world powers and iran inched their way closer to an historic breakthrough than after sixteen hours a tweet from the e.u.'s top diplomat a deal had been done to the six negotiating powers agreed to recognize iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy including its right to nuclear enrichment on the condition that its program is placed under street controlled by the i.a.e.a. . as we received word of the agreement we got details to iran had agreed to reduce its uranium enrichment from twenty to a maximum of five percent use u.s. centrifuges while holding construction of a new reactor near the town of iraq this week throughout this long list of concessions iran's foreign minister still had a smile on his face and red sand he won for his country a partial easing of sanctions allowing to volunteer regain control of billions of
3:03 am
dollars worth of much needed funds and find banks we believe that it is the sanctions that have brought us to this negotiation and ultimately to the more significant negotiation to follow for a comprehensive agreement others have stressed that it wasn't the stress of more punitive measures but diplomacy that won the day over the night in the case of these talks the fact that that the iranians have shown time after time that there is no evidence that he was going to be a program that anything like peaceful is something that has been ignored by the western media and western governments but this despite all that iran's resilience has forced these countries to accept. enrichment and again the russians and the chinese have played a very constructive role. the geneva accord was the result of the goodwill shown by the six nations and the european union and the hard work of the negotiations team
3:04 am
rounds new president hassan rouhani is also seen as having played a crucial role in making the deal possible he came to power less than three months ago edging to improve iran's relations with the west and i don't think that sanctions played as much of a role as a recognition by the united states and britain and other countries that we need to engage iran because iran is becoming increasingly influential this is a.b.c. and the interim agreement in six months time well its powers and iran are set to return to the negotiating table i don't think he is a big. deal signed here in the middle of the night it's a game changer what he'd like to see some people. despite winning praise around the globe a historic agreement failed to gather unanimous welcome in the u.s. let alone as close ally israel or washington correspondent granted she can take
3:05 am
full look at how despite diplomatic triumph the obama administration has found itself between a rock and a hard place today that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure and flying in the face of president obama what was true to geneva. last night in small store. so the store still. does not mean a safe place in an environment where israel as well as many u.s. lawmakers don't think that iran should develop nuclear technology at all the obama administration had to engage in diplomatic batiks to both acknowledge iran's right to peaceful nuclear energy and not acknowledge it at the same time we approach these negotiations with a basic understanding. iran like any nation should be able to access peaceful nuclear energy but because of its record of violating its obligations iran must
3:06 am
accept strict limitations on its nuclear program that make it impossible to develop a nuclear weapon the scope and role of iran's enrichment as is set forth in the language within this document says that iran's peaceful nuclear program is subject to a negotiation and to mutual agreement despite the official's attempts to obtain the hawks hunches are flying security cameras it looks like we've tacitly agreed that they will be enriching for commercial purposes down the road so i think you're going to see on capitol hill again a bipartisan effort to try to make sure that this is not the final agreement another senator marco rubio called the deal quote a blow to our allies in the region who are already concerned about america's commitment to their security and quote i think a lot of people both in the middle east and on capitol hill are very concerned that
3:07 am
this interim deal becomes the new norm opponents of the deal in washington and abroad are already working not to let it survive the six month trial the obama administration is walking on eggshells before congress israel and its allies in the coffins it's trying to convey a carefully worded message which is you cannot threaten war all the time in washington i'm going to check out ryder ryan dothan believes that despite having criticism at home and abroad washington will not back out of the deal. the u.s. is not going to give up on this piece you know we've basically. hundred seventy nine and this is a major step forward and we have everybody on board. they're enriching to twenty percent and they do it a scare a nuclear weapon here that was probably more the french who don't want to compete with the market for medical isotopes but there's been a lot of negotiation and
3:08 am
a lot of time put in this and they're not going to throw it all away because the israelis are having a fit. well some u.s. lawmakers are also voicing concerns that iran is gaining a lot while giving a virtually no saying venture capital explains just how much to iran why beginning in financial terms. the country can now get a hold of around seven billion dollars worth of commodities and financial assets we know that sanctions have crippled the country since their introduction so let's break down some of these figures as they were a large proportion of these numbers are going to be coming from so the country can resume trade in gold petro chemicals and auto exports and of course this will equate to around one and a half billion dollars although the countries earnings will still be greatly improved to rand's earnings will still be thirty billion dollars less than before the embargoes were originally introduced golding the financial sector just over
3:09 am
four billion dollars worth of offshore funds will be frozen now this is still a tiny fraction of the one hundred billion dollars that will still be inaccessible to iran but it does mean that the country can finally relented the global banking system once again long term or the hope is that the country can drag itself out of recession seventy five million people the iranians are struggling on a daily basis because products are so expensive there we know inflation is up forty percent along twenty thirty years it's all about investment investment into the country has been pretty much nonexistent we know in anticipation of this deal there's already been conversations going on with the global energy companies the european us ones orning to get back into the country where they've been out of it for around thirty years now really make use of those oil assets. meanwhile a striking a deal with iran has been prevented to
3:10 am
a g q magazine from naming the u.s. president among the top twenty five least influential people of the year later today in crossed off people of al and his gas discuss barack obama's plummeting popularity figures and here's a taste of what's to come. on this program we ask is obama serving bush's fourth term it's really it's not going to judge the presidency of barack obama and george bush in the same light whatsoever i think obama is way worse than bush and i am not a big fan of george w. bush there is no compare and contrast between either president whatsoever besides having a spending problem politico just ran a poll showing forty six percent approval for president bush while you have thirty seven percent for president obama it's quite an irony at this point. riot police are firing tear gas at protesters in ukraine these are latest pictures from the capital kiev demonstrators are angry at the government which suspended in
3:11 am
association deal with the european union police have surrounded the crowds trying to prevent violence but some scuffles have already taken place for now it doesn't look like the crowd is going anywhere of course here and he will keep watch on what's happening there for you here gas was used yesterday as well as angry crowds attempted to storm the government building for now protesters have set up camp in the the city center was no sign that the protest will and sued. in the creating capital for. ukraine is divided again the decision by the government to suspend the free trade agreement with the european union polarized the country these people participating in the largest protest rally i've seen in years in kiev say that they completely disagree with this decision they say the president must be impeached at the different rally just a few hundred meters from his supporters of the president say that this decision was a brick magic one and was the correct one the notion which is shared by many political
3:12 am
analysts as well because looking at the possible disadvantages economic disadvantage such a great could have suffered from just joining the free trade agreement it's easy to see why first of all there was an isolation of the korean machinery factories could have cost more than one hundred billion dollars altogether the actually which ukraine cannot afford at the moment so the fact is a lot more denies they can get closed and the tens of thousands may find themselves in the streets without work and could create a social unrest another factor which was also crucial here is that in order to be in line with the european standards ukrainian government had to increase prices for heating our trysting gas for the ordinary population certainly this is something few in ukraine would have liked so looking at all this and other possible economic disadvantages ukraine's economy decided not to sign this deal it was looking for some sort of compensation from the european union but the european union did not offer any kind of compensations for for the put the full potential economic damages and the losses essentially this is what caused the signing not to happen next week
3:13 am
another interesting twist in a story happening during the week is that the european union in fact pointed the finger at russia accusing russia of blackmailing ukraine to sign out of this free trade deal the russian president hit back saying that in fact it was the european union who blackmailed ukraine it would have been blackmailing ukraine all throughout the negotiation process let's have a listen to the russian president when i heard that ukraine has suspended not canceled but suspended negotiations with the e.u. he wants to review everything we heard a threat from the e.u. to ukraine although we have to organizing mass protests this is pressure and blackmail. exactly nine years ago hundreds of thousands of the greats took to the streets only. to change their political life political life was changed back to the country was set on the integration course anything of this sort will happen during these protests both boys will have to wait and see. party dot com
3:14 am
melissa financial hurdle is standing in the path of ukraine's way to the e.u. one of the factors named there is their rising price of gas and its impact on the cost of utilities. can have may just find a way around it by drilling for cheaper shale gas this here in ukraine signed cooperation deals with oil giants shell and chevron which could help the country lower the gas price by as much as three times the current level but sharon wilson who had to abandon her home because of onsite fracking says the benefits will not cover the damage. i've learned about this industry the hard way i worked for industry first and then moved out to the country and bought my own place and then i experience the environmental impacts all around me there's the possibility of water contamination water depletion and many many horrible air impacts and the
3:15 am
traffic in just a huge disturbance knowing why it's been a fitting a very few people the industry and a few large landowners and it's coming at great expense to the people who live on the land. the bank of england is optimistic about growth in the u.k. but there are many indicators more important than g.d.p. which suggest it's far too early to celebrate war and that coming up shortly. plus the president and the pope fly more importance on a visit to the vatican as part of a state trip and a sign that the two rival churches are now getting along much better where we live in rome shortly stay with us. this is the place that has been consecrated to god for almost
3:16 am
a thousand of years people came here twenty some years ago and so are you stablish lastic life on the silence. and people feel the love of christ of working. people so you can. come and something happens on this island that makes them return to it again and again they say the below saves them. join me james brown on a journey for the soul. only. right the sixty. first street. and i would think that you're. on our reporters would.
3:17 am
be in. the book about this is our team the u.k. is slowly recovering from one of the deepest and longest financial crises to hit the country but despite moderate growth some key indicators like living standards health and education suggest few reasons for optimism are just laura smith reports . say the bank of england's four costs for economic growth is on the up unemployment is down it sounds great but beyond those immediate fake is a darker picture that pretty much all the measures by which we track economic progress are in decline people's real incomes bowling more and more of it spends on basic essentials uniquely this generation of young people is worse educated than that parents and obesity female life expectancy and child mortality among the
3:18 am
worst in europe still needing economics commentator jeremy warner says growth is good but warns it's unsustainable there's not enough exports is not enough business investment in this economy now provided the economy continues to grow the hope is that these things will eventually come true but at the moment it's low very little sign and you say that these key indicators to living standards education health these are all on the decline talk to me about that. yes well there are some other were very worrying features about the u.k. economy. ever since the crisis began living standards have seen under a lot of pressure a real wages have been declining we've probably see. a ten to fifteen percent erosion in living standards since the crisis began part of six years ago on nets
3:19 am
big it's never happened before. in multan history really for the first time again in modern history we are seeing a situation where people leaving the workforce and retiring are better educated than the people joining the workforce and that's that is a very worrying phenomenon for the future because any more of an economy depends all. continued growth and learning new skills and so on and so forth. if you'll get fuel standards of education all to colliding then your relative income in the future relative to the rest of the world is going to decline with it so it's a very worrying phenomenon what does it all adds up to then these underlying economic into cases i mean where we go with what i think. an extreme wakeup call really i mean britain has a lot of things going for it. it's still reckoned to be one of the most open economies in the world it has the biggest global financial center in the world so
3:20 am
that a lot of things going the u.k. but these underlying trends are very worrying and something needs to be done about them very very urgent warner says the government's doing some of the right things but to gingerly and ultimately unless radical action is taken in those key areas britain's economy is living on time. now president hamid karzai has refused to sign a security treaty with the us until next year's presidential election he ignored a council of elders recommendation to ratify within the next month and if city deal is sealed up to fifteen thousand u.s. soldiers will stay in the country for tan warriors and they will be authorized to carry out at a terrorist operations and have the right to raid afghan. that's this plus american forces will be immune to afghan laws critics say u.s. troops will only stay there to protect their government's interests. if there are
3:21 am
ten thousand or twelve thousand troops in this country this would mean that they will only concentrate on their own special forces activities i guess i'll. give tribal area. operations and. the other side. their old enemies they will not worry about. the security of afghanistan they will not worry about our internal problems they will just pay attention to what their goal is and that's it in my view americans are tired of this mission tired of all kinds of fatigue the wars bring in that sense i don't think they have a big appetite and a larger operation in afghanistan. that's not the stories from around the world now in pakistan thousands have marched against u.s. drone strikes in the country protesters also will cave in nato supply routes and stop trucks demonstrations started after an islamist party asked the state
3:22 am
government to press the u.s. to tax and this comes just days after a u.s. drone strike killed five people in a remote tribal region and. three people have reportedly been killed as islam is battled government troops in the libyan city of benghazi the ultraconservative salafi movement has been a challenging authority is since the downfall of modern khadafi the salafist claim the country lacks islamised ideology and have forged ties with extremist groups in neighboring states including al qaida. and the law banning street protests without prior police notification has been issued in egypt it's been condemned this repressive by human rights groups man a believe the measure is aimed at supporters of ousted president morsi have been staging almost daily progress since his removal from power in july egypt. has been
