this is a business. model first in berlin welcome several use states have created a new payment channel in a bid to bypass u.s. sanctions on iran it's called in sticks and germany france and the u.k. behind it it's designed to allow iran access to european markets without having to rely on international banks because banks face penalties under the u.s. sanction regime the new payment system will allow iran to sell products like oil for example to european customs in sticks would then get and keep the payment for it in turn european companies can deliver food or medical supplies to iran while getting paid by instincts that would allow participants on both sides of the system to avoid running afoul of u.s. actions that only forbid monetary transactions with iran which in states circumvents still companies using in states might risk retaliation from the u.s.
. states will be a topic at the e.u. foreign ministers meeting in the romanian capital of progress today at our europe correspondent barbara of israel is there and standing by for us barbara is this really about business and trade or is in stakes a political instrument. it is a political message of course because we remember that the europeans were quite angry when donald trump the president sort of started mailing them and threatening european banks if they would get get involved in trade with iran they would be severely sanctions we also know that many banks have absolutely pulled back and we're afraid of burning their fingers and they said this can't go on we can't be just pushed around because the europeans this re countries france germany and the u.k. who have been the partners in the iran nuclear deal they still say that iran is

china and hong kong ten to fourteen pigs are prepared here every day but now in the run up to chinese new year it can be up to one hundred and they're delivered to other restaurants and private customers. but overall meat consumption is on the wane in china too fatty to heavy more and more chinese are adopting healthier diets but the master roaster has other worries. that young people think this job is too hard also if we go out of business one day they won't be able to find a job anywhere else so young people are not willing to join us. but for now grill chefs expect people to really dig into pork during the upcoming year of the pig. oh it's yummy the skin is very crispy delicious. and twenty twenty is the year of the rat but it's unlikely that
