10:09 am
possible if there is a resolution but what i will say is that you know all of the people i speak to you know they talk about the arab peace initiative and again it was a it was a great effort but if that was where a deal was going to be made a deal would be made a long time ago i think we all have to recognize that if there ever is a deal it's not going to be along the lines of the arab peace initiative will be somewhere between the arab peace initiative and somewhere between the israeli position let's cross back to one of our top stories of course the american sanctions on iran let's cross over to tehran correspondent joins me now before we get into the nitty gritty of what this means in the long term say there are new lines dropping certainly from tehran by reacting to this quite to the. yes that's exactly right so here we've just heard from iran's president hassan rouhani he was attending a meeting of the health ministry this morning he's been speaking for about a little over an hour now and he's just begun talking about the latest sanctions placed on iranian officials by the united states and we have to know this is the
