has been saying is mission accomplished they have defeated eisen for over a year the u.s. forces have been here and the role of those forces not just us but foreign forces after journalism in money that has a nation is going to make them while they're able to attack from within and outside iraq and they are hunkering down to protect themselves which begs the question why should iraq keep them here and why should iraqi security forces have the additional responsibility to protect them and that is something that the iraqi prime minister has been telling his cabinet his parliament the u.s. ambassador and the u.s. secretary of state as well. with tensions high in the region foreign ministers have met in brussels and repeated their continuing support for the 2015 iran nuclear deal e.u. foreign policy chief has that boro says the deal is critical for regional stability he says europe wants to maintain the do but that iran must uphold its obligations well 2015 iran nuclear deal has survived for years but
a need just it was signed under former u.s. president barack obama along with iran and 5 other nations lifting sanctions on tehran in exchange for monitoring its nuclear activities as the new year later president donald trump withdrew from the agreement calling it a bad deal for america and reimpose sanctions other nations trying to keep the pact alive but following another wave of tough u.s. sanctions in may last year iran began rolling back its compliance 1st it increased its stockpile of enrich uranium and on sunday after the u.s. killing of its top commander tehran scrapped all limits on its nuclear program a touch of outlet has more from brussels and says the e.u. is looking for a role to mediate the crisis. the e.u. foreign policy chief feels there burrell's a really came out and wraps up that e.u. 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 we cannot afford another war he said that all sides must a deescalate tensions he said that another war would risk on raveling the good work that would be done to try and stabilize iraq in the priority really had to be to fight eisel 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 8 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 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 j. c.p.o. way 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 any weapons we must move away from conflict and really we must try and find some form of political solution. at least 15 people are being killed in an explosion at a mosque in pakistan's southwestern province of belushi stan 120 others were injured in the blast in the region's capital cueto it's been reported that a senior police officer who was killed was the target. come out harder as more from islamabad.

even have the infrastructure to enforce this. plastic manufactures are the only voice criticism against the new law. environmental scientists like the sea authorities rushed the initiative without properly consulting experts as well as important. this is a political decision and dare i say the wrong decision because it is not founded in science or technical ability what i would suggest is that this be studied instead of simply following trends taking place in the rest of it the 12000000 residents of the mexican capital produce some 13000 metric tons of waste every day. and much of that waste comes in the form of single use plastics which often end up in rivers lakes and the ocean mexico city officials say the ban on plastic bags is only a 1st step there are plans to prohibit the sale and distribution of a wide range of a single use plastics by january of 2021. critics of the legislation say the
