adviser says he has quote almost certain iranian naval mines damaged oil tankers off the coast of the united arab emirates earlier this month but he did not provide any evidence to back that statement he is currently visiting the u.a.e. for more let's go to same as he is live for us in tehran so what is iran saying about these accusations a. welder show in the last hour we've been hearing from iran's president hassan rouhani he didn't reference bolton by name but it's a see it seems to be a reaction to some of the comments coming out of the national security advisor president hassan rouhani in a weekly cabinet meeting said that the united states has made many contradictory statements in the past few weeks a lot of what they say can't be relied upon specifically a quote from him he said basis is not words whenever they stop their oppressive behavior towards iran and put cruel sanctions aside and stick to their commitments and return to the negotiating table presumably he means 1st then they the
4:08 pm
themselves have left then the path to iran will not be closed to them so making it clear that iran remains open to. moving forward but only if the u.s. comes towards it 1st really what's happened between the united states and iran in terms of the escalating tensions is it's become a battle of narratives and that seems to be happening again ahead of important talks in saudi arabia between a gulf arab leaders iranian government officials when this attack a legit attack on the ships in the u.a.e. port happened many to iranian officials said that it seemed to be a false flag operation possibly carried out by the united states or israel to ferment more escalated tensions in the region and in the weeks since they've doubled down on a sort of diplomatic push saying that their arms are open to arab neighbors and even pushing the idea of a non-aggression pact between iran and other countries in the region and the
4:09 pm
foreign ministry keeps pushing. lying to say that in their experience taking the united states at their rhetoric at what they're saying well it's important not to take those things too seriously. in his 1st media briefing as iran's new foreign ministry spokesman abbas moussavi wasted no time getting to the point if the united states wants talks with iran the starting point is returning to the 2015 nuclear deal. now we won't have any negotiation is the united states and on line has always been respect for international agreements to least they could return there with the rubber. and based on delusion so we have no prospect for negotiation and invades for developments. as to offers by 3rd parties while iran's leaders are open to hearing from concerned friends of he says mediation isn't necessary yet stubbornly sticking to his guns seems to have worked in the iranian

government's favor the u.s. has rolled back hawkish language and even with the american military buildup still in the region a war seems much less imminent iranians often say they don't care about iran's strategic victories or even standing up to america they care about things like the price of diapers for their children the value of their real currency fluctuating from one second to the next and generally being unable to afford a happy life. in my opinion everything should be solved through negotiations but out of politics should be separate from social issues because innocent people are being corrupt into political games if iran and america. get better during a visit to japan this week the u.s. president struck an optimistic note i do believe that iran would like to talk and if they'd like to talk we'd like to talk also we'll see what happens but the iranian government says the u.s. pullout from the 2050 nuclear deal has shown negotiating with americans. it's
4:11 pm
a fool's errand and as long as meaningful reduction of sanctions remains unlikely talking is a waste of time to order your slimy to iran is not interested in empty rhetoric and pays more attention to behaviors and to decide upon them iran seems to be meeting american sanctions and military threats with more soft power doubling down on a policy of strong links with other countries to build a chain of consensus and condemn america's role in the middle east to that end the new face of the foreign ministry often iran's loudest voice on the world stage made it clear iran remains wide open to diplomacy with everyone except the united states . now john bolton also pointed out that iran should not leave the nuclear deal the 2050 nuclear deal the joint comprehensive plan of action which the united states pulled out of a little over a year ago he said the only reason and this is the message he's giving to arab
4:12 pm
leaders in the region he said the only reason that iran would leave the nuclear deal was to pursue a nuclear weapon so giving a very clear warning your brawny and leaders have of course said over and over again that they have no intention to pursue a nuclear weapon that in iranian islam and the law it is illegal to do so and they remain committed to preserving the deal and to that end russia's deputy foreign minister sergei lavrov of is in teheran for meetings he's been meeting with the deputy foreign minister of iran's foreign ministry a boxer rocky and they'll be discussing a future meeting between the remaining signatories to the j c p o j c p a way and ways to preserve the deal going forward of course we're about 3 weeks in to a 60 day deadline to preserve the deal that president hassan rouhani set a few weeks ago when he decided to commit to some non cooperation with certain parts of the nuclear deal all right with the latest in tehran thank you. so at on al-jazeera. the ride of their lives the motorbikes providing
