are broadcasting live from our studios in moscow this is our international certainly glad to have you with us right iran has admitted to accidentally downing a ukrainian passenger plane killing all 176 people on board the country's airspace commander has said the armed forces accept full responsibility for wednesday's tragedy explained that the boeing 737 was mistaken for a cruise missile. well it's you know you were not heard that. he went on to explain that an air defense system operator had faulty communications and had just 10 seconds to make a decision the general said his units had requested a no fly zone before the incident but the request was denied for specified reasons as part of the investigation the black boxes of the crashed boeing $737.00 will be deciphered in ukraine with french experts. assisting in the technical work to

iran's admission that it unintentionally shot down at the airliner came after repeated denials artie's done quarter discussed of the events with jacqueline. we heard from ukraine's president vladimir the lenski who said that he expects he expects iran's take full responsibility and for the investigation to continue without any obstruction earlier today we did hear from iran's president who promised just that and called the vent and on forgivable mistake the armed forces internal investigation has concluded that regrettably missiles fired you see human error coups that horrific crash of the ukrainian plane and the death of $176.00 innocent people investigations continue to identify and prosecute this great tragedy and unforgivable mistake now iran's president also promised compensation for the families of the victims and the country's supreme leader has called for the for the findings of this investigation to be made public now earlier we also heard
6:03 pm
from iran's foreign minister who gave he actually highlighted the nother reason for why this crisis took place. a sad day preliminary conclusions of internal investigation biome forces human error at a time of crisis caused by us some ventures and led to disaster profound regret apologies and condolences to all people to the families of victims and to was affected nations give us a bit of background here what exactly is the foreign minister referring to oh well just last week a u.s. airstrike killed a high ranking high ranking could command. soleimani and that brought tensions in the region to a level that we haven't seen in decades this guy was considered a hero to many in iran as he was instrumental for the defeat of isis in syria so the government promised harsh retaliation for his death and that came in the form of several airstrikes against u.s. military bases in iraq that happened just mere hours before this plane went down and so at that time the iranian military was intice
6:04 pm
a painting some sort of possible u.s. response to those strikes which explains why they thought that this airliner could have been an enemy aircraft they said that it was approaching a military installation clearly tensions were very high are there other cases of countries shooting down planes by mistake yeah unfortunately when tensions are this high like you said accidents are more probable for example during the cold war in 1903 the soviet union mistakenly shot down korean air flight 007 thinking it was a spy plane the plane went into soviet air space at the time that a u.s. reconnaissance mission was going on as well and in 1908 u.s. navy shot down and a rainy an airliner killing all $290.00 passengers because they thought it was in the rainy and fighter jet now at that time then vice president george h.w. bush said he had nothing to apologize for and that he didn't care about the facts regarding the shooting of the plane down meanwhile
6:05 pm
a vigil for the victims of the tragedy has been held in tehran iran's admission of guilt has shaken the public mood in the country. some questioning why the government didn't come clean earlier. with us after unfortunately when i 1st heard about the plane crash it was said to be a technical issue but the announcement came without any preliminary investigation which is led to doubts around the world but now they've done the necessary investigation and it was clarified that the plane was hit by a missile we've been really sad since this morning when we heard the news and we were all angry that people told this line about the russian why didn't you get after flies should have been cancelled and planes shouldn't have taken off from any air force and that just about all of our country was in a state of war and this mistake could have been made by any country and there occurs self-hate our air bus made a similar mistake after iran hit the u.s. bases we were in total readiness and that's what led to the mistake we've heard
6:06 pm
opinion from various experts on what happened. in times of war and the so called for go for unfortunately the reasonable rate there are yet able to pierce this fog unless the reason be conflicting mechanism so again one can talk about blame and responsibility or accountability the blame is iranian but the responsibility lies on other shoulders too so iranian defense systems were on alert and they were expecting attacks by us planes as stated in the armed forces the statement there have been reports that some hostile objects flying objects have been appearing on radar screens in some of some parts around the country so soon as they saw a plane coming to a sensitive i.r.g.c. base they have you know rushed to and jumped to the func lucian and fired strategic
6:07 pm
at has become tactical blunders distracted g. off by that regularly being ordered closing down the space under extreme circumstances could have avoided this whole. deal whenever we have valid dives in that you'll be in we had bound to have mentioned raised guns cog coolidge's ready to fight the good will be said that you wish me to be have to be the case and the big picture to how to do use this and that you on how to be escalated this i believe did on ian's have taken the 1st step in the initiation process of this horrible accident in which 176 people were lost was done by the americans had the video on say yes that is true ukrainian airlines tragedy and the us iran standoff overshadowed a meeting in moscow between on the merkel and vladimir putin the leaders of germany
6:08 pm
and russia agreed to do everything possible to preserve the iran nuclear deal. russia and germany support further implementation of a joint plan for deal with iran which iranians have the right to realign the support of european countries that we promised to create a special mechanism independent of the dollar for trade with iran. as the site of speaking of the crashed airliner iran announced today it was a big error and it's good news that those responsible have been named i think know everything possible must be done to find a solution together with the countries whose citizens group on board that plane to clarify told the situation in iran was indeed in the spotlight during the meeting between angela merkel and vladimir putin even though this meeting mine the 1st one in the kremlin between the 2 with the past 5 years had been prearranged back in december so way before the tragic events in iraq but these events they have brought
6:09 pm
into the spotlight the reality of a major conflict in the middle east as how it has been showcased so vividly by iran and the united states of america sold leaders talked about all sorts of things like syria like libya and vladimir putin has talked about what sort of consequences a war in the middle east could have not just for the countries involved not just for the middle east itself but also globally you're to look at just when you do i hope very much that we will avoid large scale military conflicts in the middle east if it comes to that it would be a disaster not only for the region much but the whole world. for instance a lot of the putin talked about the potential humanitarian repercussions and consequences of a conflict in the middle east because while a refugee flow from the middle east to the rest of the world could be catastrophic if anything if a war in the ground was to break out also talked extensively about libya and about
6:10 pm
the fact how the hostilities in that country should cease and because this was what he agreed. and this is what he discussed and agreed on with the turkish president again obviously being a major powerhouse in the region but the middle east wasn't the only thing on the agenda another big point is the nord stream to gas pipelines it's a gas pipeline currently under construction from russia into germany to provide the whole of europe with russian but with the russian gas it was a major it is i should say a major bone of contention between germany europe and the united states because washington sees that washington doesn't want this doesn't want to see this pipeline it doesn't want this pipeline to be built so it has for instance european countries european contract is under sanctions it has threatened them with sanctions and longer pin contract is to pull out in the face of this threat. stressed that russia
6:11 pm
is able and will finish the construction of this pipeline only to show you just said that while the finish the end of construction will be delayed by a few months because of that but also angela merkel that she has stressed how important this project for germany and from her standpoint to the whole of europe to here's what she had to say about it so i asked my tough to this is 1st and foremost in a canonic project we consider it to be the right thing to do and after today's discussion with president putin i believe it's possible to complete north stream to despite those sanctions. the tone of the meeting was neutral positive i should say in fact angela merkel she repeated at least twice that it is better to talk to each other rather than about each other so this could be an indication that russia and germany could drift closer towards each other in the near future. the libyan cease fire which igor mentioned very took effect at midnight local time just over an hour
6:12 pm
ago that hasn't been confirmed by the libyan national army. this week has seen an escalation between the 2 rival governments in libya there have been numerous reports of clashes and airstrikes around the city of syria too with dozens killed in the cease fire was brokered by the leaders of russia and turkey at a meeting in istanbul on wednesday and on saturday the german chancellor urged the warring parties in libya to find a compromise at an upcoming peace conference in berlin. there have been more protests against pension reforms in france rallies in paris and other french cities were joined by members of the yellow vast protest movement in the capital things did it turn violent with police resorting to tear gas. i. i. was i.
