this is g.w. news live from berlin a message of defiance from iran as were new to us sanctions come into force the country's president says that tehran will bypass the measures and calls on the country to resist but it won't look the fallout before ordinary iranians will have the latest from our correspondent in tehran also coming up everything is still up for grabs as campaigning ahead of the u.s. midterm elections enters its final hours many say the stakes have never been higher
plus tapping into a new creative by the in africa a contemporary art fair in nigeria showcases some of the best of the continent has to offer we'll talk with one artist who's made it big. and in the bundesliga bloodbath are back to their winning ways baby distilled or three of their own to climb to second in the table we'll be bringing 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. reimpose all sanctions lifted three years ago as part of an international deal to limit tehran's nuclear program the restrictions target key areas of the iranian economy including the oil financial and. shipping factors but rouhani says iran
will not be intimidated by the 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 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 bizarre with iran's oil and finance sector 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 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 recover 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 believing enemy yes that he said on hussein was in front of us today it is trump there is no difference if you lose shame. ramping up the rhetoric iran is pointing the finger at donald trump and its leaders talking tough in a bid 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 at c.b.s. 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 stage propaganda show organized by the iranian government as you said they shipped 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 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 missile and nuclear programs and what it calls support for terror so ultimately do you think 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 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 reopen the chambre of the stock exchange trying to bring bias and sellers together of oil. 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 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 so i think what we are going to see here with next week's 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. sanctions that's how how it's a vision 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 swift tested 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 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 supports 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. now to the united states where 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 has been crisscrossing the country to boost support for his party. president trump arise for the campaign's homestretch in his official plea it's how he's managed to appear two to three events per day he's been addressing 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 strong men the way we care. the president's message same 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 peace to overwork one of his main issues america's obsession with guns. thousand people are killed in this country every new gun violence new other developed country 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. let's get a quick check of some other stories making news around the world saudi arabia has told the u.n. human rights body that it will prosecute the alleged perpetrators and the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi and in turkey a pro-government newspaper has reported that a saudi team purportedly sent to investigate the shakti slaying at the country's istanbul consulate instead worked to remove evidence. a jail decide or decided to in china is in danger of dying from severe health conditions if he does not receive medical treatment says human rights groups. kwang key was arrested in two thousand and sixteen for leaking state secrets he had run a website named after the one nine hundred eighty nine crackdown in tiananmen square. and an engine news in official has said that the black box data recorder
from a downed lion air flight indicates that the jet had a damaged airspeed indicator the instrument was reportedly problematic during the last four flights of the boeing seven thirty seven the aircraft crashed in the beginning of last week killing all one hundred eighty nine people on board. two buildings have collapsed in the southern french city of march say at least two people were slightly injured a search for any more victims is underway authorities said that one of the buildings had previously been under an evacuation order. here in germany top leaders from chancellor angela merkel's christian democrats are meeting at their berlin headquarters to discuss the party's future after she stepped down a sticking point is whether the party should return to its conservative roots or remain more centrist as it has under marko's leadership americal said 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. let's bring in political correspondent simon young who is standing by at c.d.u. headquarters in berlin simon two days of this meeting at c.d.u. headquarters has just finished where is merkel's c.d.u. heading now after suffering those crushing losses in recent reason a lections. yeah that's the big question that the c.d.u. leadership has been discussing here and of course after eighteen years with angela merkel in charge of this party it's a chance for them to reflect about how things should go forward how can they renew themselves and get back in touch with their conservative base so heading now into five weeks nearly of a leadership battle and it's really a question of whether it will be more of the same with the medicals anointed success the woman who's currently gen general secretary of the party or whether one
of the more right wing candidates e's likely to take the helm and that could spell trouble both for the coalition government and also for anglo-american herself as chancellor based on those options does it appear as if merkel can make it through to twenty twenty one with all of those cross-currents in her party right now. well she certainly saying that she can she's got no plans to give up the top job at the moment and she was asked at a press conference here a short time ago you know what are they going to do differently in the government to get things back on track as she herself has said is necessary she simply said well we're going to solve the problems that arise so very much a kind of merkel response you know we are carrying on business as usual calmly but surely into the future but of course there are those who are saying as i mentioned if there's a right wing candidate who comes out of this leadership election battling with her
within the party then it's difficult to see how it should be able to keep her shit on an even keel for three years as she said she intends to do nene time leaders of her coalition partners the s.p.d. they have also been meeting how serious is the situation there and how secure is the grand coalition. yeah i think the social democrat situation is very serious they've suffered within the last few weeks to crushing defeat in regional polls and that continues a series of bad election results in in a opinion poll over the weekend the s.p.d.m. only polling thirteen percent that's the same as the far right. and well below the greens of the christian democrats so they've got to consider what their future in government will be simon young in berlin thank you.

a smart decision told and how did the rest of the. midway through the second half i had was again the full guy with a poor pass. that back took full advantage i knew it was hoffman maybe. the photos were coasting to victory and how good after eighty two minutes. of homeschooling the dove easily just go off in the dumps. just seconds. braman have been one of the surprises of the bundesliga season so far but minds burst their bubble with a two one win mine didn't look like a team that had one in seven games but john felipe i taped up put them in front just twenty five minutes and punishing the passive bremen defense. and john farley jew bomb months of cracking strike. i'm just in doubled mine says advantage
shortly after the break the ageless claudio pizarro made it a game in the seventy eighth minute but it wasn't enough to rescue a point for britain. now in tennis novak djokovic has suffered a surprise defeat at the hands of russian carin hotch and off in the final of the paris masters djokovic in blue beat roger federer in saturday's semifinal but auction off dramatically ended his winning streak of twenty two matches the world number eighteen won in straight sets up in five six four despite the defeat djokovic who will still take over us tennis world number one later today. meantime west africa's biggest international art fair has opened in the nigerian city of lagos art excell a ghost showcases more than sixty artists from fifteen african countries the curator says that the fair is tapping into a new creative vibe that is transforming the art world across the continent d.w.

a promise if you know there's a problem is the hope is that because the chinese economy continues to flood the world market with cheap exports while importing relatively little is that about the journey china is announcing promises to open its markets in a move that appears to be good will the government just put on a lavish import fatso portray the country as a vision of globalization. china presents the typical images you'd expect from the most in dictatorship brilliant light spectacles shanghai by night and singing children with flowers the architect behind the event is chinese president xi jinping he's flown in numerous heads of state from all over the world. in a world of increasing globalization this lure of the jungle approach where the winner takes all will only lead to a debt and inclusiveness and cooperation a mutual benefit the only ways forward. u.s.
president donald trump was not at the fair in anger over the high trade plus he slapped punitive tariffs on around half of chinese imports and is threatening with more china is now making vague promises to open their markets based imports and reduce the surpluses from we're going to china will further lower tariffs improve the level of convenience for customs clearance reduce the institutional costs in the import sector i don't will excel or write the development of new types of business models such as cross border electronic commerce fog. china currently exports around five hundred billion dollars worth of goods to the u.s. every year but only imports one hundred sixty five billion dollars. the international exhibitors in shanghai including americans can only hope the employer tax by is more than just propaganda. financial correspondent contribution
