11:50 am
used to believe for the explosions on board 2 tankers in the gulf of oman the u.s. planes iraq and they released this video purporting to show iran a sort of a god's removing an unexploded limpet mine from the japanese old kuta courageous the timestamp according to the americans shows the top and after the vessel scroll had been askew well iran didn't do it and do you know they did it because you saw that load i guess one of the mines didn't explode and it probably got essentially iran written all over it. and you sort of loaded. trying to take the mine off and successfully took mine off the boat and that was exposed. didn't want the evidence left behind i guess they don't know that we have that we could be back in the dark very well. russia and germany say the video is inconclusive and the incident requires further testing. iranian leaders accuse the us of what they call diplomacy against a country speaking at
11:51 am
a gathering of eurasia leaders in kyrgyzstan iranian president hassan rouhani said the u.s. is pushing an aggressive stance that cannot be tolerated. as the government of the united states over the last 2 years using economic and military capacity and is creating an aggressive approach the united states has stepped over all the norms and regulations of the international community and has created new threats for the region and the world. and in the war of words the japanese owner of one of the ships has cast doubts on the u.s. claim that mines were used he said the ships a lot of soft flying objects before the explosion this for analysts hard evidence is kept but intentions on the one side or the other are easy to get your on may well one to prove that if squeezed it can hit back by deceptive oil supplies
11:52 am
through the strait of hormuz the u.s. leaders on the other hand have long shown their desire to punish iran for its alleged nuclear ambitions one analyst says whoever is behind the attack incident has given the u.s. a perfect opportunity but i think it's pretty clear that the united states administration is really rushing to judgment there is quite a bit of cynicism out there are young people who are trying to read the messages from palm bay oh a lot of people think this is possibly a little too convenient given that there are some in washington some in certain countries in the region that want to see the tensions between the u.s. and iran remain really high some of those countries are iran a sunni muslim neighbors saudi arabia and the united arab emirates in addition to israel but there is no telling what a war on iran could cause to the region gulf nations have much to do is if

11:54 am
he also said that high level mediation was needed but again his hands were tied obviously the the mood offices of the secretary general always available but the office of the secretary general of the mandates on the bodies of the. u.n. can only be exercised with the full agreement of the parties the secretary general seems to be placing limits on his own possible actions and they are limits that are not laid out in the united nations governing document the un charter so why does mr terrorist appear to be so reluctant to get involved i asked his official spokes person can you tell me where in the charter of the limits on his good offices where are the limits in the charter to stop him setting up his own investigation i can't find any secretary general needs a legislative un legislative body to set up an investigation is it because that has
11:55 am
that has been that has been the practice for as long as i've been here what does he need to carve out a more powerful role and is he not in effect shirking his response no i don't think he's sure at a time of global crisis he should be leading that i don't and he's finding excuses not to i don't think he's shirking his responsibilities at all the secretary general is clearly putting the ball in the court of the security council but they're already clear indications on this. issued the council is deeply divided if mr good terrorists is waiting for a unified security council to give him permission to get involved he may be waiting a very long time then again he probably already knows that. al-jazeera of the united nations saudi state media are reporting airstrikes against yemeni targets by the saudi u.s. led coalition according to the report the strikes hit military bases and air defense systems in the capital. when earlier
