economic sanctions until iran stops its terrorist activities and commit that it will never have nuclear weapons and speak now to our white house correspondent can really help it so tell us more about what these sanctions one of oh yeah well we should point out that this is the latest in a string of sanctions that the united states has put in place ever since it's withdrew from the j c p a way that's the agreement to limit iran's nuclear program back in may of 2018 snack sanctions went into place then we had 2 more rounds of sanctions after that now yet another round put in place by the trumpet ministration through executive order as you point out it targets not only the steel as well as iron industries but construction trade and even some senior officials in the iranian government now the purpose of all of this the administration says is part of its broader maximum pressure campaign to isolate the iranian people from the global financial system
but also as well to cripple its economy of the reason for this the united states says is in retaliation for those strikes by iran on those military bases in iraq that were housing u.s. soldiers of a administration about they not just missing the threat against the u.s. with or against the killing of general simony. yeah there are still lingering questions that seem to haunt the cid ministration ever since the strike was called questions about the word imminent so just how real was this threat many argue that there was the issue of timing rather quincy dental that all of this coming down the same week the u.s. senate was supposed to begin its trial into the impeachment of u.s. president donald trump so questions about the timing asking for further evidence we did have closed door briefings of members of congress and democrats and even some republicans say that the intelligence was not provided to prove that that threat was imminent something that the administration says is not the case. this was going
to happen and american lives were at risk and we would have been called probably negligent as the chairman the joint chiefs of staff said we would have been culpably negligent and we not recommend to the president that he take this action and custom so the money he made the right call in america safer as a result of that. now in the midst of all of this the term administration is also insisting that there's still incredibly room for diplomacy that they would like to sit down and negotiate a new agreement with iran they also say they don't want war but certainly these latest actions in light of a string of heightened tensions this week and now this new round of sanctions certainly seem to suggest otherwise committee aka thank you very much indeed what's your bar joins us live from the iranian capital tehran how the sanctions over a further sanctions going down there. well we've heard from
one of the 8 people who have now been added to the list of u.s. sanctions mohsen reza he is a member of the expediency council as well as the former head of the revolutionary guards he's a very well known figure in iran in terms of his role in the country's history in the government itself as well he's responded by saying that this is being an honor for him to be added to the u.s. sanctions list it's much more of a political move by the u.s. government but for him to be considered such a high level person within the establishment in iran and to be put on u.s. sanctions is of honor for him as it is for the others on this list and we've seen in the past them and these sanctions are imposed the iranians really just laugh them off because at 1st they're seen as very symbolic a political move they don't really have any tangible results because these figures don't have any. funds or travel to the united states so it doesn't really affect
them so that is how they feel this is going to really play out this is a response to the iranian missile attacks on the u.s. troops in iraq and this is what they believe is the only response the u.s. government will have for the uranium to ship aaron thank you very much. the head of nato is backing the assessment the iranian missiles brought down the plane that crashed on wednesday is calling for full transparency from tehran during the investigation. we have no reason to. believe the reports we have seen from different an 8 dollar couples have expressed concern about. information indicating that. the plane may have been downed by iranian air defenses systems that's exactly why we need a thought of the nose to geisha and that's exactly why we need to establish all the
facts and that's exactly why it is important that. we have full cooperation from the rain side in such an investigation. where he installed made the comments at an emergency e.u. foreign ministers meeting in brussels aiming to save the 2015 iranian nuclear deal and find ways to convince iran to continue its commitment under the accord a u. foreign policy chief borrows says the deal is critical for regional stability he says europe wants to maintain the deal but that iran must uphold its obligations. there is life 1st in brussels that have come under a lot of pressure haven't they from the u.s. to to drop this deal but they still seem to be sticking with it. yes that's right the e.u. foreign policy chief burrell's a really came out and wraps up that foreign ministers meeting an emergency meeting that was held to discuss the situation the crisis between u.s. and iran and he touched on
a few main points he 1st of all said that whatever happens the message from the e.u. is that cannot afford another war he said that all sides must deescalate tensions he said that another war would risk unraveling the good work that had been done to try and stabilize iraq in the priority really had to be to fight i saw he also said that the priority for e.u. member states was to maintain the j.c. p.o.a.'s you mentioned the j c p o a the iran deal it was signed in 2015 e.u. leaders have been battling to try and save it since 2018 when donald trump pulled the united states out of that deal saying it was a very bad deal but the e.u. has kept the line they've always maintained so far and that is that this deal is absolutely necessary for the stability of the region in fact burrell said that without this deal it's quite likely that iran would have a nuclear weapon right now and he also said that iran must now try and fully comply
with the deal and that comes after the fact that tehran this week said that it was withdrawing from many of the key commitments that it's made to that deal which would really see that deal on the brink of collapse so the message there the e.u. member states really want to save the day and i think we also saw you foreign ministers perhaps trying to maneuver the e.u. into a position where they could try and mediate in this crisis a brawl saying that we must move away from weapons we must move away from conflict and really we must try and find some form of political solution. thank you very much. the u.s. state department says that it will not discuss troop withdrawal with the iraqi government iraq's prime minister. asked the u.s. secretary of state to send a delegation to baghdad to discuss the issue and the state department says any american delegation would be dedicated to discussing how to continue
a strategic partnership and the request follows the assassination of iraqi politician a man 100 and the iranian commander a same sort of many last week on sunday iraq's parliament voted to expel all american troops from the country he has been sacked he is a lawyer and former chief of communications for mission of iraq to the united nations and she believes it's still on lightly united states troops will leave iraq any time soon there is the united states claiming victory there is iran claiming victory and then there is iraq which is trying to maintain its sovereignty but also some face in front of the front of the iraqi people i believe that the u.s. obviously is very hard to know what's going to happen right now because things are moving very quickly but the of us government is likely to stay in iraq when they pulled out in 2011 it only took a few years for isis to take over the 2nd largest city in iraq and that was a disaster not just for the iraqis but also for the u.s. and iran so we do need u.s.
presence as americans in iraq and so do the iraqi people so what we're probably going to see now is a little bit more posturing from the people of iraq a little bit more. rhetoric to appease the iranian government which is so so heavily overseeing the iraqi government but overall ultimately the u.s. government cannot afford to pull out of iraq and it cannot afford to handle iraq over to iran. to iraqi journalists have been killed in bosnia in southern iraq activists say there's a campaign by armed groups backed by iran to drive them out of the region meanwhile protests have been taking place in iraq against the government and also the united states and iran thousands of people gathered into his square in the center of the capital baghdad and other major cities it's revival of anti-government demonstrations which began in october which has also chanted anti us and anti
