the sanctions regime is also reminiscent of iraq after the first gulf war in one nine hundred ninety one but supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei made it clear iranian oil will continue to flow despite american intimidation. little body can little buddy. we will explored as much as we need and want the enemy must know that this hostility won't remain without a response the mission of iran won't remain silent against us hostility. the consensus in iran seems to be that war with america is unlikely as the cost would be too high that there has been talking to one of disrupting the strait of hormuz which would wreak havoc on oil markets but for now it may just be saber rattling what i'm saying is it is in our interests and not it's our national security interest to keep the persian gulf open to keep the strait of almost open but as long as sanctions continue to heighten tensions what happens next remains unpredictable zain zero to one on our diplomatic editor james bay is has more from

new york speaking. well he says that iran has done absolutely nothing wrong iran entered into what he describes a treaty formally it wasn't actually a treaty with the international community including the united states and it's the u.s. that has ripped up that deal it's the u.s. that now is removing those waivers for eight countries to still trade with iran on oil and he made the point that the iran nuclear deal is not just a deal itself it was in shrine and in a u.n. security council resolution so by ending international law and he said for the first time in his view in history a permanent member of the u.n. security council was not only going against a u.n. security council resolution it was pushing others to go against a u.n. security council resolution he did say that he believed in his view that president

11:04 am
a new york times investigation reviewed hundreds of internal boeing documents and federal records and interviewed current and former boeing employees john barnett worked at boeing for nearly three decades he retired from his job as a quality manager in twenty seventeen from what i've seen building their planes here charleston i don't feel they're in a safe in their weather condition barnett says on several planes he discovered metal shavings hanging over wiring that commands flight controls he showed his bosses he says who ignored his concern and moved him to another part of the factory is over time these metal shavings are going to migrate down in these boxes or into the alert connectors store far. the last thing you want to forty thousand feet so far the south carolina boeing plant was troubled from the stars built in two thousand and nine to focus exclusively on building the dreamliner boeing struggled
11:05 am
to find qualified local workers according to the time for reporting production delays tested the patients of carriers from day one it's just all been about scheduling our news get it done push planes out we're behind schedule you know we don't have time to worry about issues that you know bring in a message to employees the vice president of boeing's dreamliner program said the new york times article features distorted information that rehashes old stories and rumors that have long ago been put to rest a federal inspection of the south carolina plant in two thousand and fourteen thousand and no violations but the f.a.a. said it had previously found the presence of foreign object debris i am not aware of any civil airliner having an accident as a result of debris being left inside the aircraft due to maintenance or manufacture there is no evidence that the problems alleged by the boeing whistleblowers have led to any major safety incidents in fact more than eight hundred of the train line
11:06 am
are jets continue to fly around the world none have ever crashed but after the deadly accidents involving boeing's other popular model the seven thirty seven max now begs the question whether the company has a greater safety problem worthy of scrutiny by peter castro al-jazeera. for more on this let's speak to kyle bailey who is an aviation analyst a former f.a.a. safety team representative and a pilot he joins us now on skype from buffalo new jersey called the new york times investigation into boeing's manufacturing describes a culture that often valued production speed over quality how worried should we all be. you know we should first of all good morning and we should not be worried about this keep in mind boeing has about one hundred fifty three thousand employees and we're talking about a dozen employees actually that were making claims about this production facility
11:07 am
so you know there really isn't much to worry about and voting has a stellar track record as in their production line and there really have been no no accidents or incidents as a result of such things as metal shavings and manufacturing anomalies that have happened have this is a factory that specific a manufacturer that dreamliner tests a little more about that plane and doesn't have any known issue. you know that the biggest no one issue that several years back the batteries on the airplanes were overheating but this was in no way anything to do with manufacturing from that the so what he in charleston it was a separate incident and that was completely resolved boeing chose charleston one of the main reasons was pretty much to skirt around union labor to get nonunion
11:08 am
cheaper labor into that facility but you know both boeing. boeing is very good at production they make a fine airplane and i think this is you know the i think senior management of boeing is right this is exaggerated based on you know boeing has been in the media the last few months and i thought i believe it is really over exaggerated so if it kyle also we're hearing pot still of left in the pain there electronics and those shavings that you you mentioned even bubble wrap near a pedal that could have had it jammed surely these are all consensus not just in that one. yes that is true these workers turns but keep in mind that boeing produces a lot of airplanes and they have decades of experience and their quality control is very good but they can now another words inspect every inch of every single airplane that they produce it's pretty much like any other industry where you're you're you're spot checking from your quality control team and they're doing that
11:09 am
and you know humans do make mistakes and that's you know the unfortunate issue here . and doesn't matter what industry it is humans do make mistakes and there are things that can fall through the cracks but i think boeing does a very good job at preventing these from falling through the cracks well speaking of mistakes there's been huge fallout of the seven three seven macsoftware issues and obviously boeing is racking up huge losses as a result of that is this putting the company under even more pressure to try to his'n bottom line and perhaps even cut more corners in future. no i don't see it and so you know today as you know they just announced about it that the incident with you know the last two accidents were will cost the airline will cost the manufacturer somewhere around a billion dollars. but the bottom line is although production might be delayed airplanes so well these are planes actually will be sold and they will be
11:10 am
eventually delivered to the airline customers right now boeing has a significant backlog of orders and air airliners are in such demand that if you wanted to order one today it would take years to get one and that will still continue there might be you know this is probably like a little what would be described as a little hiccup in the assembly line but these are planes that are everything right now that is stalled they will eventually be delivered to the customers or really won't affect. boeing in the long term and keep in mind they are in other industries as well as as the commercial airline business kyle banyan aviation analyst and speaking to us from new jersey sounding optimistic about boeing speech and thanks for your insights kyle thank you well ukraine's president elect not to me is immense he is calling for more international sanctions against russia and comes off to moscow made it easier for people living in parts of eastern ukraine to get russian puff points and then he accused moscow of trying to just in the eyes it's

a trip to damascus the iranians are trying to mend the relationship between syria and turkey hoping for an increased diplomatic role. while iran of course also is trying to get more leverage and resolve your russia in this process because the issues that are most important on the ground in the northeast these are issues i would say. between russia and turkey more than between turkey and iran the three countries are major stakeholders in syria and initiated the so-called asked in a process they have maintained their alliance despite disagreements because their strategic interests intersect beyond syria they have strained relations with the united states russia and iran want to keep turkey on their side but at the same time they don't want the turks to expand their presence in northern syria. but also many countries need wider international support in the west if syria is to end its isolation and receive war we construction funding russia is pushing for progress on

11:24 am
russia that shed your old in the coming hours leonard petrovich the north korea expert and a visiting fellow at the australian national university and he's joining us live now from sydney learned not a huge amount of detail about this meeting what's likely to actually emerge out of it. well it looks like the expectations are not very high both domestically and internationally. president putin is on his way to vladivostok just simply having a stopover short stop over for one day in a diverse talk on the way to china and kim jong un to travel to germany used his train to cross the border to spend a couple of days in russia and the return so looks like it's a technical meeting to feel in the gaps which were left after kim jong un's summits we've president presidents using peeing and the president of south korea so
11:25 am
briefing president putin on what happened in singapore and in hanoi but then surely discussing the literally cannot make up your ration we've russia but no more than that kind of talk us through the relationship between moscow and pyongyang why is this happening now is it just because it's it's convenient or is there something more that. well kim jong il in face seeing the past with the american counterparts the second summit in hanoi left the integration process in limbo so it looks like kim jong il is now trying to or could the other direction to moscow and see whether the russians north korean partnership can count the balance the blunder which happened in hanoi with president tom had to walk away from the negotiations also the
11:26 am
playing against china would help north korea to get to secure a certain concessions from. international sanctions russia is one of the states which is bidding for the lifting of economic sage sanctions against north korea but that's understandable but russia is under sanctions itself so there might be potential ration behind the closed doors. type of economic cooperation with hard currency in the vault where both russia and north korea might benefit being both on the same chanson kim jong un has been recently appointed the chairman of state affairs commission so he's been in his new status in his new title kim jong il is now traveling the world and greeting the strong men of the kremlin well let me ask you a little more about what both sides might gain does putin think he might have something to offer the u.s. congress and in the past he's been
11:27 am
a big proponent of the six party negotiations involving other groups as well while other countries. well of course russia is just a neighboring state to north korea sharing just seventeen kilometers long border but strategically extremely important railway and automobile roads are now being constructed for facilities improved and this border between north korea and china actually super rates north korea and russia separates china from access to the sea of japan known as east korean seem the united states troops are stationed on the korean peninsula for the for more than sixty eight years since the korean war which is still continuing so russia is trying to propose the detente the peace stability economic cooperation in the region which is welcomed by not only north koreans but south koreans as well as long as north and south koreans talk it is going to be
11:28 am
a much more beneficial for the russian and chinese economy the united states of course is looking at the the tonton that approach among as a potential danger to the military industrial complex to its ally alliance with solve korea we've japan so what is happening in the region is still a zero sum game the relations between north korea china and russia are the worse it is for the united states prospects in the region china is feeling in the vacuum and north korea's also trying to cure it we've traditionally allies china and russia and so in that case the u.s. clout in the region is dwindling and russian power potentially may increase particularly if the multilateral format of the negotiations is resumed don't remember the six party talks died some ten years ago but then she russia may step in and the resume this multilateral negotiating curation peace
11:29 am
driving form what i learned just briefly let me ask you one last question how much of this do you think is about disarmament on the korean peninsula and how much of this is about getting one up on us president on trying. well it looks like kim jong un is quite confident that the regime can survive even with the americans lifting sanctions so that's why he's going to russia right now because sanctions imposed internationally and sanctions by the united states but russia and china just needs the war so it's better to maintain strong and economically powerful relations. with the immediate neighbors than just simply negotiate for with the power which is just across the pacific so i think it is very cold calculating in this man in this matter and very rational and i think that
