demonstration has expired and done police clashed with the protesters who were moving around metal barricades metal fences that were put in place to shield off the government offices and police men with betances clashing with these protesters. stand that organizers are planning further protests this week what can we expect in the days ahead. well as you can see behind me now it's very calm around the government central government's offices there are a few minor events planned throughout the days as there have been. before but i guess we can expect some larger turnout of protesters again on wednesday that is when the bill will be discussed in parliament and according to the government

on what further steps can be taken to help us to fill our obligations but just as much iran to a discussion of less for less is not as if they were prepared to have that's why i hope that we on both sides will find constructive ways of preserving the agreement at this discussion. i believe after all that iran must also have a political interest in ensuring that this agreement continues to exist in the future. does this does this it's who qualify for crypt well joining us now in studio is our political correspondent simon young simon what's the current state of play here what is the status of the iran nuclear deal without the us on board what is in a polish state because as you say the us pulled down to a year ago and they believe the deal doesn't work and the thing to do is to ramp up sanctions as they've done they've also increased their military posts to putting an
aircraft carriers in heavy omas and all the military assets into the region. it's a serious situation iran on its side ease threatening to pull out of the deal rather they've set a deadline of early july for european the european partners to the deal to as they say normalize economic relations with iran you know that's quite difficult to do efforts are ongoing analysts say you know that otherwise the consequences that iran says it could impose if that doesn't happen could mean really still wanting then nuclear program of course that's exactly what western countries want to avoid being in western countries what is the german foreign minister want to achieve on his current visit what's at stake for germany and the other signatories are trying to keep the deal going what the german foreign minister said what he's trying to. promote dialogue and deescalation so he's just
trying to keep the talking going and keep the iranians in play and he said that this year as you heard him say there the idea of less palash is not acceptable in other words a new iranian effort so watered down the the deal watered down their commitments in return for a lesser commitment on on the other side that's not going to work for him either he said both sides are going to keep their promises and what the europeans have got to do is implement this instinct payment system which is a way for european countries german companies that want to do business in iran to avoid the threat of u.s. sanctions on their side he said it's a difficult system to set up that have been done before and of course the problem is that your european companies may still worry that the more important trade if they have some with the u.s. may be affected they may face sanctions if they do business with iran so that's what all this is about he's there to keep the talking going. simon thank you so
