5:01 pm
challenge that's being laid down by protesters there. and increasing disharmony chill a is indigenous to push a people who are embroiled in a land dispute that's getting more dangerous. a standoff is developing between the united states and some of its closest allies over nuclear sanctions on iran washington announced unilaterally that sanctions have been reimposed but that's been rejected by every other prominent member of the united nations security council tehran says that it will give a crushing response to what it calls u.s. bullying president passed on rouhani is urging washington to respect international law and he's praised world powers for standing up to u.s. pressure iran is calling on international partners to defy the u.s.
5:02 pm
move. hey we could see the u.s. lost 3 times in the span of a month but the and security council and the americans always thought that they had the upper hand at the security council for many reasons including enjoying the veto power and having traditional friends they never imagined to be defeated at the same council we saw 13 out of the council 15 member states stood up to the u.s. they supported the j.c. and rejected the united states today we can say the u.s. policy of maximum political legal pressure against the iranian nation turned into maximum isolation for the united states. but the u.s. is not backing down secretary of state like pompei or threatened consequences if the u.n. member states fail to comply with it sanctions washington insists that it has the power to re-impose the measures despite pulling out of the iran nuclear deal too is ago let's take you straight to han said big is the tell us more about what
5:03 pm
president honea rouhani has been saying. well this was a televised address is joining a cabinet meeting now we didn't expect this we were told about 20 minutes before he went to air and very much president hassan rouhani is capitalizing on this division the united nations security council and it's seen as a victory for iran a diplomatic victory in iran will be playing this up he did say that states maximum pressure campaign has turned into maximum isolation for the united states but he also warned the united states that if they continue down this path of trying to reinstate sanctions that there would be a decisive response a firm and decisive response from iran but he also thanked the iranian people to standing up for standing up to the united states and he thanked china and russia these 2 countries are friends of iran and before going into this vote at the united
5:04 pm
nations it was thought they would veto if it actually came down to a vote and they had to use the veto as it turned out that they didn't have to because they were there was so much opposition to the united states so very much iran is seeing this as a diplomatic victory for themselves and then making the most out of it but they still have options on the table in case the united states insists on reinstating these sanctions and the europeans don't actually come through for the iranians what are those options. well iran still is a signatory to that 2015 nuclear deal and a very very responsive very much depends on what the united states does next so if the united states starts shop stopping iranian vessels then iran will respond and in the past iran has retaliated so when the british seized a iranian tanker off the shore of gibraltar last year iran sees the british flag
5:05 pm
tanker in the strait of hormuz and the strait of hormuz is very strategic 20 percent of the world's oil passes through those busy shipping lanes at its narrowest point it's around 39 kilometers wide so we could see something taking place there but also parliamentarians here are saying that if the u.s. is successful in reinstating those sanctions then iran could possibly pull out of that 2015 nuclear deal or stop i.a.e.a. inspectors from inspecting nuclear sites here in iran and that's something that the europeans don't want to see but iran considers that the odds are in its favor because they have very little to lose currently if those sanctions are put back in place out 0 said big reporting live from tehran i said many thanks indeed france germany and the u.k. say that the u.s. doesn't have the right to reimpose sanctions on iran in a joint statement they emphasize that the u.s. seems to be a participant to the iran nuclear deal after its withdraw 2 years ago and that
5:06 pm
washington's move to reimpose sanctions will not have legal effect the u.s. ally has explained that they are committed fully to implementing the 2015 deal endorsed by the un our unmerited is an iran analyst he says the president trump is making the nuclear sanctions on tehran an election issue. it's just a totally unreasonable american to moms no one in the no one in the u.n. vote except the dominican republic supported not 5 of us sanctions out of the un. simply because the us left the j.c. your way and most people see this is to do with american domestic. has been releasing information about. attempts to assassinate u.s. ambassadors in and in south africa he's got
5:07 pm
a habit of taking on verified intelligence and just putting out a media it seems to be that americans are looking for political cover to basically escalate something out by seizing. incoming arms traffic into iran maybe i'm straight and will move to something this is all about the election. received with it's not during elections and that florence block to incumbents in times of war and that's been widespread speculation that this is what the administration is up to at least $24.00 civilians are reported to have been killed in northern afghanistan in a series of government s. trikes the afghan defense ministry insists that the attack killed 30 taliban fighters but witnesses have told the a.p. news agency that innocent villages were killed it comes as the taleban of the afghan government meet in karzai to find a way to end the decades long conflict russian warplanes have launched airstrikes
