this is deja vu news live from berlin a message of defiance from iran as were huge u.s. sanctions come into force the country's president says they take brown will bypass the measures and calls on the country to resist but what will the fallout for ordinary iranians be we'll have the latest from our correspondent in tehran also coming up everything is still up for grabs as campaigning and head of the u.s. midterm elections enters its final hours many say the dicks have never been higher clubs. believe that.
11:01 am
cuban american figure cut me a cut biomes two weeks of the board at the m.t.v. europe music awards but this year's event is not only about entertainment with veteran singer janet jackson taking to the stage she talked about a difficult past plus in the bundesliga gladbach are back to their winning ways baby does the door for three male to climb to second in the table we'll bring you the goals from sunday's match. i'm sara kelly welcome to the program iranian president hassan rouhani is urging his country to stand up to what he calls a bullying enemy he was speaking as the u.s. reimposed all sanctions lifted three years ago as part of the international deal to limit tehran's nuclear. the restrictions target key areas of the iranian economy
11:02 am
including the oil financial and shipping sectors but rouhani says that iran will not be intimidated by such measures. at markets like this one iranians have been feeling the costs of sanctions long before they came into effect the mere threat has sent inflation soaring and prices doubling in just a year leaving household budgets squeezed there was a man here today who did not have money to buy the ocean for his baby because the economic situation is getting worse the people are very poor and times are hard each one of the effects are felt beyond the bazaar with iran's oil and finance sectors washed it major international companies are withdrawing from tehran at this advertisement business they have had to sack several staff. that's really heartbreaking it's heartbreaking for the people that we talk to to say that look
11:03 am
i'm so sorry there is no business and therefore if there's no business i cannot give you a job they've studied they're excited about what they want to do in the future. no hope is being taken away from them the man behind the sanctions u.s. president donald trump hopes they will maximize pressure on iran iran sanctions are very strong the strongest sanctions result for a vote. we'll see what happens with iran but they're not doing very well i can tell you iran is not doing very well but to run shows little sign of bending a defiant president hassan rouhani pledge to ignore the sanctions for their heritage this is an economic war we're standing up to a billion enemy yes that he said on hussein was in front of us today it is trump there is no death bulis shame. ramping up the rhetoric iran is pointing the finger at donald trump and its leaders talking tough in
11:04 am
a bed to stop economic hardship from turning into anti regime sentiment. and let's get more now with correspondent your browser who is joining us from tehran he is a correspondent with the german public broadcaster c they asked new york we saw all the regime bringing out tens of thousands of supporters over the weekend how are these tough sanctions likely to affect support for iran's leader leaders. well what we saw the pictures we saw on the weekend of course was a well stage propaganda show organized by the iranian government as you said they should thousands of people from all over the country to to iran to send out a strong signal of national unity but if you talk to the people the majority i think is of course dissatisfied with the performance of the rouhani government the people saw the prices going up over the last couple of months they saw the value of their national currency going down and many. might lose their jobs in the next weeks so people are disappointed but to my impression the potential of
11:05 am
disappointment is still not big enough to be taken to the streets and on the political level washington says that it sanctions that there and at curbing iran's ballistic missile and nuclear programs and what it calls support for terror so ultimately do you think we're likely to see the regime back down there in iran. where referring to the public statements made by both the rouhani government and the religious leadership i'd say no i mean president rouhani went on television this morning and he repeated that the iranian government is not ready to talk to the united states as long as they keep up their precondition i think it's it's about finding a face saving way for bringing the reigning leadership to the negotiating table and to include the conventional weapons because after the lift of the of the sanctions in two thousand and fifteen iran substantially beefed up their support for the
11:06 am
lebanese hezbollah militia they are now posing a massive threat to israel and this is in my opinion the actual background for the us reimposing the sanctions but at the moment i think iran is not ready to talk about their conventional weapons and of course iran says that it's going to get around the sanctions but how exactly are they planning on doing that. well there are certain measures that have been taken over the last couple of days i don't think that the iranians really count on european support so what they did is for for example they reopened the chambre of the iran stock exchange trying to bring bias and sellers together of oil. and then there's another story. about eleven million barrels of crude oil being stored on tankers in the persian gulf. oil tankers switched off in order not to be found and tracked but on the other hand the. u.s. have established a force trying to detect and prevent iran from generating income
11:07 am
so i think what we are going to see over the next couple weeks is kind of a hide and seek game between iran and washington. correspondent your browser with the view from tehran thank you. and iran says that it is working with europe to set up a mechanism to bypass those sanctions let's bring in brussels correspondent teri schultz terry could this actually happen the european union maintains that it will happen just friday. federica mo green the foreign policy chief and the governments of france germany and the u.k. said that their results to both maintain the nuclear deal with iran and to maintain economic support for european companies doing business in iran is unwavering so the european union says it's setting up this so-called special purpose vehicle which would allow payments to go in and out of iran. bypassing u.s.
11:08 am
sanctions that's how how it's invasion and the e.u. maintains that this is going to happen although it's not operational today at the same time the u.s. has yet another lever and that is to demand swift that's the belgium based financial messaging service which handles most of the world's interbank messaging the u.s. says with test it cut off all the same sions iranian institutions and so if that happens it's hard to see how iran could get around to saying sions regardless of how creative they're being how about european companies themselves because we know that the united states has threatened them if they don't adhere to these sanctions are they likely to do so or not. yes we have seen european companies pulling out of iran and that's despite the e.u. itself threatening sanctions on companies that pull outs in. because of the u.s. sanctions so these companies are really in a tough spot because both brussels and washington are saying they must obey but
11:09 am
what we have seen is an exodus of european companies and some very big german companies among them deciding that simply their bottom line cannot support being in a confrontation with washington and that whatever losses they have to take by cutting contracts in iran and and possibly annoying brussels is going to be worth it. teri schultz with some initial indications here of how these sanctions are likely to impact european business thank you terry. well now in the united states democrats and republicans are making their final appeals to voters as the midterm elections draw ever closer the poll on tuesday is widely seen as a referendum on the trump presidency he's been crisscrossing the country to boost support for his party have a look. president chum or rice for the campaign's homestretch in his official plea it's how he's managed to appear at two to three events per day he's been addressing
11:10 am
his supporters in vast hangars his name though is not on the ballot he's hoping to win over undecided voters to the republicans by focusing on mass migration democrats are openly encouraging millions of illegal aliens to break our laws violate our sovereignty over run our borders and destroy our nation and throw many ways and we can't let. the president's message saying simple enough but america's election analysts are having a tough time gauging the trump effect the congressional elections are complex the constituencies candidates and demographics differ greatly across the country and texas senator ted cruz is up against democratic hopeful biso over ork one of his main issues america's obsession with guns. thousand people are killed in this country every year through gun violence new other developed country
11:11 am
on the planet even income schools each of these state and local races is also being seen as a referendum on president trump and many states the polling stations have been open for weeks and a record voter turnout is expected on cheezy. and let's get a quick check of some other stories making news around the world the death toll and violent rainstorms that have lashed italy for a week has risen to twenty nine on sunday floodwaters claimed the lives of nine members of two families vacationing together in sicily the severe weather has caused a massive damage and disruption across the country. saudi arabia has told the un human rights body that it will persecute prosecute excuse me the alleged perpetrators in the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi and in turkey a pro-government newspaper has reported that a saudi teen purportedly sent to investigate the slaying at the country's istanbul consulate instead worked to remove evidence. here in germany top leaders from
11:12 am
chancellor angela merkel's christian democrats are meeting at their berland headquarters to discuss the party's future without her a second point is whether the party should return to its conservative roots or remain more centrist as it has and america's leadership americal says that she intends to remain chancellor until elections in twenty twenty one but her replacement as party leader will be voted on during a wider party conference in december. he let's bring in political correspondent simon young who is standing by at c.d.u. headquarters simon where is merkel c.d.u. heading after suffering crushing losses in recent regional elections. here sirrah what the cd you need leadership meeting in the headquarters building behind me you have got to do is work out where the party is going as you say and
11:13 am
how to win back the support of their traditional supporters whether to stay with the centrism of anglo-american all or perhaps to the wheel to the rights and troy and back for instance some of those who in recent elections of drifted away from the christian democrats and given their supporting states to the far right party so that's what they are having to work out here and of course it's important that they give it to consideration these opportunities don't come off they don't come along very often and go america has been seedy you leader for eighteen years and the big question is whether or not she can make her chancellery last until twenty twenty one as she has projected with all these cross currents in her party right now welcome to the scenario simon. yeah i mean whether she is able to stay chancellor for the next three years really depends on who becomes
11:14 am
leader at least that's one of the key things to look at will it be her chosen successor and a great car and he's been described as meaning they're called she's the continuity candidate or will it be one of the right wing the front runners friedrich schmidt so you can spawn two names who have both been associated with criticisms of mer call with their criticisms of the migration policy but there are different aspects of her policy that they might want to change and it may be difficult for the party to know exactly which way it wants to go given that the economy in germany is doing well people have got jobs so it's all the aspects of policy that they've begun to worry about and if you have somebody who's a he's a real opponent of markel leading the c.d.u. party and that could make things very difficult for her and she might have to step back from the chancellorship in a year or so meantime leaders of her coalition partners the s.p.d.
11:15 am
they have also been meeting how serious simon is the situation there and how secure is the grand coalition. well the s.p.d. says electoral situation is extremely serious indeed they've been hemorrhaging support for election after election the last two votes in bavaria and saw them fall back even further they're heading some say for single figures pretty soon which would be disastrous for them so they've got to work out how they can present the voters with a clear idea of what social democratic policies are but at the same time they don't really want to upset the convent current government they're in coalition with angela merkel and probably many of them feel they should stay there because if they if they leave the government battleforce new elections and that might be an opportunity to voters to say well we've had enough of the s.p. deal together t w simon young standing in front of the headquarters of angela
11:16 am
