airlines crash. aircraft crashes minutes after takeoff it ran all 176 people on board tests. i should have never been arrested in the 1st place for months on course carlos ghosn accuses japanese prosecutors of collusion in his 1st public appearance since skipping the. u.s. president donald trump has announced new sanctions on iran in response to missile attacks on bases in iraq that housed american troops no one was harmed in the strikes which were in retaliation for the killing of a senior iranian commander qassam sala money in a u.s. attack last friday speaking a short while ago trump also said that he would ask nato to become more involved in the middle east. as we continue to evaluate options in response to a rein in aggression the united states will immediately impose additional punishing
8:02 pm
economic sanctions on the iranian regime these powerful saying sions will remain until iran changes its behavior we must all work together toward making a deal with the wren that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place we must also make a deal that allows iran to thrive and prosper and take advantage of its enormous untapped potential as a white house correspondent kimberly helka joins us now live from washington d.c. can believe what do you make of that. well this is not the speech that most americans were looking for and certainly i expect around the world there are enormous disappoint with this speech as well because it doesn't answer many of the big questions number one what are the next steps is there going to be another u.s. response or is this where things stand as of now there's also for many americans
8:03 pm
a frustration that there still has not been any evidence provided with regard to why the u.s. decided to as some people using the strong term assassinate but or killing of general salim mahdi the fact that the united states made the argument that there were imminent threats against the united states but that speech did not provide any of the evidence of that that americans are looking for so there will be some very disappointed folks who listened to that speech but also confusion given the fact that this year president you have to remember when he talked about nato he often on the campaign trail even referred to it at one point as being obsolete so it was surprising to many that buried within the speech was the suggestion calling not only on european allies to abandon the nuclear agreement that helped to limit iran's nuclear program but also calling for nato to become more involved in the middle east process. today and going to nato. to become
8:04 pm
much more involved in the middle east process. well look the president i've spoken to his his his nato allies about. what he wants when he have spoken to the other signatories of the nuclear deal with nations that that have withdrawn from it . well there's been some secrecy about the consultations that the president has been having in recent days the white house we've learned has been withholding some readouts of certain meetings that have taken place particularly when it comes to meeting with one of the members of the saudi arabian government but we did get a readout that the us president had been in contact with german chancellor angela merkel and that this was discussed in the context of middle east conflicts the critical needs and also the concerns that are taking place with respect to iran and
8:05 pm
iraq but beyond that it does seem to leave many people scratching their heads whether or not this would even be something that the european allies would entertain because of course we've seen many of them fighting very hard to preserve the the agreement the remains in tatters so there is a lot of head scratching going on a lot of frustration with this president because on the one hand just days ago he was tweeting in all caps saying that he would respond to any attack by iran on u.s. interests with swift and without hesitation now we see not only restraint as some would call it but i'm very much hesitation on the part of the u.s. commander in chief white house correspondent kimberly how could bear live in washington let's go to teheran now al-jazeera store such a bari is the of the president said that the true long nations have tolerated iran's behavior those days are over he said that he was going to introduce additional punishing sanctions immediately but he also said that iran appears to be standing down but if you make
8:06 pm
a. well it's very confusing i think for rainy instead listen to that speech here because i don't know where the president has been all morning but all day here in tehran we have heard nothing but very very stern warnings from the highest authority in iran the ayatollah khomeini the supreme leader spoke earlier this morning in the capital where he said that this missile strike. was a slap in the face for the americans and it was a sign of things to come it were they not to change their course and leave the middle east completely we also heard from iranian president hassan rouhani as well as the foreign minister in the defense minister in the capital on wednesday where they all shared the sentiment that the united states is going to be held responsible and accountable for the assassination of major general hossam solely money and that the assassination that they carried out is an act of war for the
8:07 pm
iranians and that iran has just started to react with what they managed to do overnight in iraq now we also want to mention that the president's u.s. president said that the u.s. government gave $150000000000.00 to the iranians after the signing of the 2015 nuclear deal this is really not the case the 150 $1000000000.00 that the u.s. gave to the iranians was funds that they had frozen as a result of years of sanctions since the 1979 revolution took place and the it rainin students took over the u.s. embassy in the capital here and held a $52.00 american hostage for over $444.00 days that was what resulted in series of sanctions that the u.s. government held whatever funds the rains had in the u.s. prior to the revolution that was released after the oil was signed in 2050 so that $150000000.00 was not a gift it was not given to the iranians it was
8:08 pm
a. money that they had already in the united states it was just frozen under sanctions that was the 1st thing the 2nd is that they were there's been chance of death to america in iran for decades despite whether or not they signed the g.c. korea or not and the nuclear deal was signed to try and try to limit iran's nuclear program not to abandon it that was very clear for the iranians they signed this nuclear agreement so they would open up more to the international community their nuclear program as well as limits the nuclear program so they would put a cap on the advancement of this program and since united states withdrew from it last year the iranians have said that they're going to take measures and they have already as of june of this year of last year they've started to scale back their commitments so these are few points just to make it reference to his speech and
8:09 pm
then finally i just want to mention that he said that the president said that iran can be a great country and that the civilized world must send a message to the reigning regime i think this will be seen as another further insult to the iranians here not only to the governments in the establishment but to the 60 to 86000000 people that live here and who consider their country a civilized one to begin with for so many thanks indeed of zeros to also to ron let's go now to baghdad some of the job that is. what people what will people there in baghdad be making of this speech particularly the bit about wanting nato to become more involved in the middle east process. but i think there would be a sigh of relief at the power corridors in baghdad here after the president's speech here because he did not talk about immediate steps he did not talk about further entirely ition but he did talk about getting more people involved to try
8:10 pm
and resolve if that is something what iraq has been insisting upon butt. it was interesting that almost 12 hours after the incident took place the iraqi government came out with its response condemning what it calls another infringement of its sovereignty by the iranians been the fired missiles into an elephant base and it was interesting to see that the condemnations did to come unequivocably but it wasn't as strong as we'd been seeing in the case of the united states and we did hear from the parliament speaker who see the president perhaps all of them saying that day needs to be steps to deescalate all of them again emphasizing that iraq does not want to be dragged into yet another war another conflict. to a major parties in the region some of enjoyment their lives in fact that many thanks indeed asama let's get the thoughts now of a city a political analyst known bashar who's with me once again in the studio of the
8:11 pm
nation should be grateful that the americans were harmed in the attacks that the president there was minimal damage and iran now appears to be standing down he said . what do you make of that's very important and by the way we did not address it enough in our last conversation i think that's pretty important because i think now in what i've called much of an ending on a whimper in the sense that despite all the bombast in the beginning of the speech and the hostility and blaming it all in obama he seems to then say nothing but we're going to talk to need to start dealing with some kind of a process and we would like to cooperate with iran against iran seems or appears to be standing down i'm sure the iranians will say now something like it seems president from appears to be standing down and this is the kind of thing where you're project a certain confidence saying that the other the other party is standing down hoping
8:12 pm
the other party will suppress it and so with that kind of a cycle you were. things down clearly the american president is not about to escalate the situation against iran clearly he's not despite all the previous truck trick about to hit any 50 top targets or of any nature and as you and i spoke earlier clearly the iranians were not exactly in their attack in the in the early hours you know we're not about to be hurting americans or humiliating america they were just responding proportionally as the iranian foreign minister said to the assassination of the area what about america's allies in nato and the other signatories to the iran nuclear deal the president said that. europe china russia russia must he said break away from this nuclear deal we can negotiate something else he went on to say a few minutes later we will they have known anything about this no my guess is no
8:13 pm
but you know this could also be interpreted in a number of ways for example he could be saying something like ok you know that with the of the network of the europeans have been saying ok why don't we stop why don't the rich another deal that would address all the points that you mr president think are missing from the previous deal that was the french initiative. another initiative is to say look nato is more than happy to get involved but not against iran it would be more than happy to get involved in some sort of a process to continue with the escalation with iran in order to arrive at some sort of and he had a moping big brackets a good a global deal with iran or or what was a one point when you think least mention in terms of a great bargain with iran something that nato and setting european partners would probably specially turkey would be more than happy to mediate something between the united states iran that i arrived at new guidelines for managing their hostility if
8:14 pm
you will or managing the cold war between to iran washington but what my my my bet is is that it's not going to get the involved certainly not the european numbers and 30 against iran in favor of the united states and just very briefly it's that as the tension russia down a notch or 2 since president trunk spokes you think will be still the high level we were earlier in one word yes mon but i think states. we're going to get a weather update thanks to when i was there then 5 years in the making but finally opened how russia stands to benefit from a new gas pipeline through turkey. and we'll tell you why millions of indian workers have walked off the job.
8:15 pm
