6:03 pm
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 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. now 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 the rod 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. this is an

economic war we're standing up to a building enemy yes that he said on hussein was in front of us today it is trump there is no difference. and talking tough and testing their military hardware to. these drills designed to send a message here ran ramping up the rhetoric in a bed to stop economic hardship from turning into anti regime sentiment. and the sanctions cut deep let's find out just how they are affecting the people in iran europe because it is a correspondent with german public broadcasters a day off and he joins us now from the iranian capital of tehran europe before you set the scene for us on how this latest round of u.s. sanctions are affecting the local economy what are these punitive measures designed to do. you know officially the u.s.
6:05 pm
government denies that aiming for a regime change in iran although they would definitely appreciate it so the iranian leadership is convinced that this is the actual driving force behind the sanctions and my impression is that if the u.s. expect the sanctions to bring the people to the streets i don't think that this is going to happen the opposite is actually what you can see like in many cases when there is pressure being put on an even disputed government that people unite behind this government so but if the idea is to bring iran back to the negotiating table and even include their ballistic missile program into these talks i think that this is much more likely to happen than any regime change in iran oh right now let's talk about the people of iran because this is bad news for them my how ronnie is a day to day lives are affected. well i think you know
6:06 pm
the people as strongly affected by the sanctions and even they could see the dettori acting in qana me long before actually the us pulled out of it i think that there is still a strong support for the government amongst the religious part of the population in iran but we travel to iran for the last couple of days we talked to many people and the vast majority told us that they're not satisfied with the performance of the rouhani government they blame their government for mismanagement and for corruption there were people who even told us that if they had the chance to they would like to leave the country in order to give their kids a brighter future so people are really tired of fighting for survival they expect their government to act and if it means that you know the government gets back to the table and negotiate i think the people would be fine with it in order to have the sanctions lifted and for the country to prosper economic but you're the iranian leadership is showing no signs of wanting to do that they're very very
6:07 pm
defiant. well the iranian government as rouhani said today i mean they will try to to still sell their oil in order to get revenues i mean they will be allowed to do so because the u.s. government granted waivers to eight countries among them china india south korea or turkey but the iranian government is also seeking for other measures to sell their oil there are reports of big stores in tankers at the coast in the persian gulf and there's also reports of rain investor was just switched off their radar in order to not being not being tracked so they could sell their oil somewhere else the u.s. established a task force trying to prevent the iranian government from doing so so i think what we're going to see within the next couple of weeks is kind of a hide and seek game between washington and tehran all right so the sanctions may not live up to the hype we'll have to wait and see meanwhile reporting from tehran
