newspaper or what you need relation to east asian they'll talk about sanctions how do you even have any ports that function in iran given the international sanctions against your country well at the beginning of the sanctions they put the. mikes in on pressure on the shipping sector including try turning off the international shipping companies especially the container liner carriers to seize their. trade with iran and to to have. call to iranian ports the classification societies who issued the certificate for the ships and those who are members of iraq's which is the international society association they also stopped their coverage of iranian ship insurance companies internationally into insurance companies even insured and they are in a collapse but fortunately due to the capacities of iranian maritime secretary
coding shipping companies you know our shipping line islamic republic of iran shipping line which is mainly a non tanker for lead. at the moment from capacity point of view it's rank is 14th. and our national tanker company. is it's been always among the top 3 this is not some something that can be ignored in the matter of time transportation. so we have such a huge capacity of our own fleet under the iranian flag or owned by the ukrainian companies and we had our own we have our own classification society which just after the sanctions they start to cover issuing the class 4 of the ships then we have local insurance companies and so at the moment majority of our ships are trading all over the ward so you know going to be meeting anyone
a lloyd's of london any syndicate underwriters for p.n. i know no actual down here in london probably because of the sanctions but i tell you a word presumably lloyd's of london the swiss re munich re all the begin sure is very interested in what you have to say because of instability as regards shipping within the bubble my lips trades and of course the straits of hormuz just tell me what is this new home was initiative that iran is. is trying to promote to try and ensure the security of maritime trade well as. proposed during his speech united nations general assembly at the halmos peace india or is emphasizing the capability of regional countries to do to enhance the security of maritime activities. from the iranian
side our naval forces not only are. guaranteed the security of the navigation in there on the waters under our jurisdiction we have a history i think of at least 10 years of covering this. security of. multinational fleets in the gulf of aden. off the coast of smith somalia where there were threats of the piracy so while we have such a. power to guarantee the security of the shipping then what's the need of the presence of foreign or a. fleet naval forces from outside that region because that was you know written isn't the royal navy to patrol your coast line a move. by iran according to the british government there is no history of piracy off the coast of iran actually reza ronnie was explicit that it moves peace
endeavor involving countries all around that region not britain not the united states there is a continuous contact between ports on my time of crisis and of iran and shipping companies and the port authorities maritime administrations of the region especially those countries that you have closer and better relation and. other countries in the far east and europe to be clear what are these other countries getting in the container ships that come from by under a bus another iranian ports a tour because they got a loaded i mean there's a story on congress here in b.c. 14000000 barrels of oil needed to china between january and may this year it's not breach of sanctions because it's been held up to join these gustavus because they could theoretically flood the market is a tankers and container ships coming out of iranian ports and then just staying in other ports for fear of us 3rd party arguably illegals entry just after the.
imposing of the sanctions we have for a few months. rather sudden decline after 2 ports of the ports especially on the container traffic which is continuing on the continued traffic so far on the other hand. content affiliate issues is that it's on. the shipping lines content if it is i can give between ukrainian forces and the force of far is in some european force india ports so they have important next port but none of these customers fear that the united states will pile into them for taking in ships from your ports i guess not because they are even e.u. borders and at the moment the true port of the union ports in total. is positive comparing to last year comparing to the few months after the imposing of the sanctions or at least 4 percent. more loading and unloading in
other ports comparing to last union yet what do you make looking back on it the british taking the grace one which changes name daria one 0 well actually that was. a clear breach of the international maritime warship was. passing too. mad a time ruled and. the action which was taken against that wasn't acceptable according to international milo knew it all usual ownership but surely was in breach of e.u. sanctions. would be carrying heating oil for the poor of syria when the e.u. wanted to overthrow the government is the i've no idea about the cargo i'm just saying as a manager of your son maritime organization you do the reading the i am just telling about the international maritime regulations it's the right of the owner to change the name and flag flag of the ships and iranian maritime law
a loads the tanker ships to be flagged under. iranian registration so that's why we did about grace one and it was a legal action when you're here in london or the international maritime organization you said iran is one of the world's naval power. as did you run into the british delegate because of course britain is accusing your government of hijacking their steno imperio tanker in retaliation for what the iranian government's or is the hijacking of the iranian flag tanker by already answered their claim that sign i mean steno in peril had some actions which was. a breach of the international matter time which briefly then they are then accidents and they didn't. you know appear today to the warning by auto to tears and that's why it was detained because that's directly contradictory to what the british authorities are saying in fact all across nato nation media was the
fact that while oh how many was meeting with with. the brain is or japan your government was hijacking japanese related tankers while he was in tehran oh it's not acceptable there is that you're a danger to america and we'll have a dance about death. it was an accident the actually. risk you crew off that ships which was attacked somehow we never accept such you know such claim unfortunately there were. some attacks on our tankers in the red sea at least 3 of our tanker ships passing 2 regrets it was attacked by an unknown. you know people and it is clear that it was intentional attack on our tank who do you suspect we don't suspect any specific
country being the managing director of iran's border 30 when you read the international media particularly that are native nations saying that your country is isolated that there's no business to be done in your country that it's declined to the point of the end of the iranian government what's your reaction to the evidence of trade and economy. activities is what we see in other ports as the manager of ports and my time organization as i mentioned i am. looking at my ports it's plenty of ships calling my main ports especially ports of man that are part of him amin even sometimes the way maintenance is all fine you get the parts for all in the same time we are expanding the capacity of our main owns the projects are running we have to sort of charter heart beaches other new port. north of the indian ocean but i'm going to also ask these ormuz peace endeavor ali
larijani the parliamentary speaker said that as part of the guaranteeing security away from major powers like the united states and britain even even the who the community in yemen could be suggested by the iranian government to enter political processes who knows helping to end the world's worst humanitarian crisis are we talking about. massive geopolitical change ahead for you. as the woman is endeavor goes on i hope that you know the process goes in such a manner that regional countries can. come to the conclusion that the improvement of the security and especially this security of the matter of time transport ation can be achieved through the cooperation of the regional caught is that so you see lighting the fire in. peace and prosperity not nuclear weapons to destroy
the entire region which is the narrative here those who has done these experiences have been always ashamed for did you know that activity against people using nuclear we've been as a as a weapon of mass destruction so we don't believe. such a weapon can guarantee. security and improved. cooperation between the contras. thank you have a concept and after the break tens of millions and counting with hundreds killed in the past few days when will the killing would be more displacing stopped 13 years since the tory backed blairite labelled war in iraq and as london wakes up to the aftermath of mass protests against britain's nato leaders summit we are scoffed arrested code big leader but they have benjamin how brain dead the organization formed to oppose the u.s.s.r.
a moral dimension bias against those who are not politically correct is the last acceptable form of discrimination. put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to present . it to the right person this is what. people are. interested in the water. welcome back while s.n.p. lib dem green bricks of party leaders trade general election campaign arguments with boris johnson over the tragic london bridge atrocity that killed 2 german cool it was clear that terrorism is a product of the bipartisan tory backed blairite labor u.k.
war in iraq the violence in iraq meanwhile has not stopped 60 mg since royal air force tornados from 9 and 617 squadrons bombed baghdad joining me now is iraq people and academic sammy ramadan the of london's metropolitan university thanks so much to me for coming on before we even get to iraq was a. said the iraq war was a tremendous mistake there's no w m d although he had varying ideas about the war ahead of 2003 that he's in london for the nato summit i have that's esoteric of question finked represents the naked face of u.s. interests special in them in the days and times of control over orders as. natural resources and backing israel to the hilt against all comers we heard about iran in the 1st of this program iraq neighboring iraq mainstream media sources saying is undergoing great developments in the sense because the prime
minister a little muddy as resigned in yet this important cleric grand ayatollah sistani says the enemy's plan to spread chaos and then return it to dictatorship he doesn't mean back to the u.k. back to saddam hussein days what is going on in iraq he does actually and his entire fund the intervention last week on friday was very critical critical to the events in general because he is or highs in manners as the one authority that commands respect in the streets of baghdad in the south and his intervention was quite strong. that so. does a direct reference to the united states because the united states and saddam's baath party are an ally and now open alliance. representatives of the baath party abroad and so on are boasting of their new alliance with the united states to kick
out what they call it or a me an occupation of iraq so his reference to the return of the dictatorship is directly related to that official endorsement of an alliance between the united states and saddam as bad as in iraq but they can't surely be blamed for hundreds of people being killed in the past few weeks as much reporting here maybe over $400.00 people and it's the united states saying that investigations need to be done into the use of excessive force by the iraqi authorities for being if that the u.s. is helping the killing there is legit to. it. and anger amongst the people in iraq against a corrupt state against the brutal killing of demonstrators so there is a side to these demonstrations a very important side that people are angry with corruption with lack of public
services some of which this is not only caused by the successive regimes that the united states installed in iraq ofter the okee patient of iraq in 200-2003 but the united states itself of destroyed iraq's infrastructure and public services but what the united states is doing today because the test setting contradictions with the iraqi government policies the united states is infiltrating these demonstrations and the iraqi government's policies the recent policies in the last 6 to 9 months have upset the united states enormously they open the borders with syria against us. concerns they have refused to apply sanctions on iran these are stronger headlines they went to china signed tough attorney and dollars where thought infrastructure projects in iraq they have
decided within the context of the middle east not to use iraq as a base u.s. base in any future attack on iran but maybe they have shown some autonomy in baghdad but there are reports that amanda solomon intervened to try and keep in power and the murdoch wall street journal saying now he's gone the jump administration has an opportunity here what do you think the wall street journal means by that and is it true that all that autonomy is not risk it is at risk but again i stress that the balance of forces in iraq. has shifted to gradually over the last 5 to 10 years that in iraq the united states has failed to impose completely its will over iraq and its governments there are the popular mobilization forces that were called upon by ayatollah sistani to go
and fight isis for 6 months the united states refused to back iraq against the isis advance on iraq and these p.m.u. popular mobilization units have become extremely strong and they are hostile to us for policy in iraq so you have a situation in iraq where the balance of forces is such that who ever rules iraq will have to look over their shoulders but there are important forces as well which are pro-u.s. so there is a critical situation developing in iraq where the situation is quite fluid and it is not clear whether the united states will have its way even after a bit as a gracious resignation of the some around on the thank you. well joining me now to go through some of the week's top stories is the co-founder of grassroots antiwar and geo code pink but there benjamin reid there thank so much
for joining us in this year let's go straight to the barclay brothers the telegraph which is related to wire in london major some adult trump says we would be in world war 33 if it wasn't for me why are you protesting this week's today we'll hear a summary a takeoff on this because he was saying it referring to north korea which he really pushed that crisis by going into that whole fire and fury issue you know he is mr world where 3 if there's going to be a world where 3 actually would be around iran where he is creating this incredible conflict totally manufactured by donald trump where here because we think that nato should have been disbanded in. when the soviet union fell apart that there's no need for this military alliance that it just sucks up a lot of money that goes to weapons manufacturers and we know the like here in the u.k. their campaign saying no we don't want to do that we want our money to go to things like health care education green new deal who are we fighting against to he wants
to fight against well you know he installed them but. russia i don't think the people of the european union or anybody in europe really wants to go to war with china or russia ok mo time to end the anachronistic nato well there will be less at the nato summit about this next story from the main line to so many images of malnourished baby boy in yemen a hospital revealed devastating cause a conflict which is driven millions to the brink of famine not so much about this world's worst humanitarian crisis say that we're in an election campaign restrictions in school when the greens as in people either in the lib dems or against john sayles to saudi arabia and the tories are appear to be for it well let's just say that it's not it's the u.k. it's the us it's the french it's the wonderful liberal western democracies that have been playing supplying the saudis with these bombs that have been destroying
yemen and you know you look at the picture like that and your heart goes out and you think you know what we mean we're giving aid to help the trouble but i think what they are even mr x. here is that is destroying the possibility of these people to get access to food in the medicines they need if they survive they are stunted for life their brains are are affected by malnutrition so this is decades that it will take to say nothing of all the money that it will cost to rebuild yemen but the way to stop this immediately is to stop the weapons sales to stop the support to the saudis well maybe governments and i bombing themselves. in fact they just say they have robust arms regimes despite saudi arabia but this from amnesty international on saudi arabia says saudi arabia g. 20 leaders must address human rights record is the kingdom takes over the presidency of the g 20 next year will be the g 20 summit saudi arabia doing very
well is a boxing match for 3 nights the josser and the reason saturday gucci chanel starbucks big companies are going the g.'s e conference in riyadh whiting amnesty international is making around about saudi arabia well it's not just amnesty my group code pink we have a campaign to boycott saudi arabia saudi arabia should be seen as a pariah state the g 20 should not be meeting in saudi arabia and western entertainers are entertainers from around the world should not be going to saudi arabia with the code pink campaigns pacifically against them our campaign is the whole deal we're saying to nice companies like lush the cosmetic company that has all these very good programs one of them is that aggressive companies are being the main surveillance they have 3 stores in saudi arabia they tell us they don't make any money there we said well then you should close them down and so we have a boycott in fact we went into one of the less stores just yesterday here in london here in london something that we do in the u.s.
all the time and we were sort of live streaming and i was explaining and going to the manager and saying please send our requests up up the chain of command saying that you shouldn't be having the stores in saudi she grabbed the phone out of our hand to call the police on us so much for free speech in london why should the g. 20 be meeting there when saudis have thrown women activists in prison and torture them most recently in the last 2 weeks have thrown a new set of activists in prison they are responsible for the humanitarian catastrophe in yemen so it should be a country that's on the boycott list though we always are invited the saudi arabian ambassador to london on the show and i'm sure a lot. should love to come on to explain why only go in their embassy because you never know if you'll come out alive of course the future gene washington post journalist well saudi arabia is getting close to israel of course there b.d.s. boycotts of israel said republic peo your secular state said we welcome the statement from foreign minister longer the believe e.o.
will work to reestablish diplomatic ties with israel as a getting closer with saudi and the transitional government's desire to engage with the world's democracies as it moves towards free and fair elections but livia you've been in bolivia i just came from there and it is heartbreaking recognizes the transitional government as a move to free and fair election well 1st of all let's say it was a coup when the military tells you you should leave that is a coup when a new government takes in that was not over that was not elected in fact in the elections the party of the now de facto president cheney 9 years get 4 percent of the vote and when they come in and supposed to be only for transition to new elections which by the way ever some. have said ok let's do it but they said no you've got to go they instead are redoing the entire cabinet redoing entire foreign relations breaking relations with venezuela sending home over 700 cuban doctors making relations with right wing apartheid governments like israel
like balsa narrow in brazil like even duke a in colombia we should recognize in 14 years whatever malice did was lift millions of people out of poverty and give power to the indigenous community that has been so repressed for hundreds of years only about the reported massacres by the de facto british and american backed government has and you would see against yourself well tear gas but also was there when the massacre occurred in right outside of la paz they've been to massacres one outside of cochabamba one outside of the pas all indigenous people who were killed and in addition to the over 30 people have. and killed there are hundreds of people who have been wounded and we have seen with their own eyes and coughing the whole time and tears in our eyes the way they used tear gas to break up peaceful demonstrations of thousands and thousands of indigenous people it's not
a democracy and will there be free and fair elections in bolivia when people are so afraid now when right wing racist people have taken over this government i don't think the conditions can be there for a free and fair elections and they haven't even if you think that's ever the show will be back on saturday with the 1st international t.v. interview of the russian federation is due about to the britain and ray killen that if you don't rush will be turned over gets a driver going i'm going to tell. her . thank. you.
list. and very well might continue watching on since last. all the yes the euro and the dollar they all refer to each other and they're all going deeper and deeper into debt so there's no basic there or there there's no there's no way to measure the dead against something that is could be considered money remember j.p. morgan said only gold is money everything else is credit or debt ok so without that there is no way to measure that debt and there's no at the moment you know my my view is that this is leading to a neo feudalism or you have just a few private equity firms owing 98 percent of all the assets and everyone else is living serfs on that we're getting back to the dark ages.
