12:02 pm
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 a lotion for his baby because the economic situation is getting worse the people are very poor and times are hard each 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 advertising business they have had to sack several staff. that's really heart breaking it's heart breaking for the people that we talk to to say that look 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 our friends were the rock 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 while they're showing this is an economic war we're standing up to a believing enemy yes that he said on hussein was in front of us to day 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 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 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 staged propaganda show organized by the iranian government as you said they shipped thousands of people from all over the country to tyranny 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 the national currency going down and many might lose their jobs in the next weeks so the people are disappointed but to my impression the potential of 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
12:05 pm
missile and nuclear programs and what it calls support for terror so ultimately do you think that we're likely to see the regime backing 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 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
12:06 pm
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 they are. indians really count on european support so what they did is for for example they reopen the chamber of the around stock exchange trying to bring buyers and sellers together of oil an enormous lee and then there's another story that we know about eleven million barrels of crude oil being stored on tankers in the persian gulf. in oil tankers switched of the radio in order not to be found and tracked but on the other hand the u.s. have established a task force trying to detect these loopholes and prevent iran from generating income so i think what we are going to see over the next couple of weeks is kind of a hide and seek game between two iran and washington. correspondent your browser
