we get reaction. to do you think. the french. company created. one minute. pm in beijing three in the afternoon here in. may. our top story. no longer are all of its commitments under the twenty fifteen
8:02 am
nuclear agreement also known as the joint comprehensive plan of action its foreign ministers say while the islamic republic wants to save the deal the european signatories must uphold their side of the bargain protected from biting us sanctions. the e.u. signatories have been complying with their obligation if they comply with these obligations iran will be able to guarantee the future life of the joint comprehensive plan of action. joining us live in the program caution over who's been following today's bilateral talks between the russian and any and foreign ministers in moscow going into the meeting between a lot of topics of conversation on the table but one overwhelmingly dominating them . well as you just heard iran's foreign minister mohammad javad zarif says that now it's time the european
8:03 am
signatories kept side of the bargain and delivers on its commitments following the iranian nuclear deal now under the twenty fifteen deal iran agreed to limit its uranium enrichment program and sell amy access have the water it has now to iran also agreed not to engage in any activities that could lead to the development of the nuclear weapons now that was in exchange for the lifting of some economic things sions against the country so this wednesday iran has said that it will stop selling off that those have the water and in two months of a no agreement is reached with the remaining signatories of the nuclear deal it will boost its a levels of uranium enrichment and push ahead with the development of the iraq nuclear reactor the iranian foreign minister. blamed the u.s.
8:04 am
for creating such a complicated situation after the united states to withdrew from the this a landmark nuclear pact now in recent weeks the us has taken quite well any increasingly hostile approach towards iran even issuing a number of threats. we have continued to see action every that leads us to believe that there is escalation that may be taking place and so we're taking all the appropriate actions both from a security perspective and well as. our ability to make sure that the president has a wide range of options in the event that something should actually take place what we've been trying to do is to get iran to be him like a normal nation well you just heard the u.s. secretary of state's my pail and on tuesday the u.s. also announced that it will deploy a naval strongly group to the middle east in order to counter the alleged threat coming from iran and send
8:05 am
a clear message to its leadership now on the same day the u.s. secretary of state mike pump a.o.l. made a surprise visit to iraq where he voiced his concerns about the a growing iranian influence in the region now speaking to the media here in the russian capital the country's foreign minister sergey lavrov said that the us. while he said that the us is the one who is using aggression as an instrument. unfortunately this is typical of our american colleagues whether it's in the middle east the persian gulf or in venezuela it's distressing during my meeting with u.s. secretary of state might jump you know in steam and on monday i called on him to employ diplomacy rather than you should address when it comes to a challenging situation. while china one of the signatories of the twenty fifteen nuclear deal says that the deal. needs to be saved and fully implemented it seems
8:06 am
that the european signatories are the ones who have sixty days to decide whether they're going to choose the side of the you asked to wear the intellectual sanctions against iran or they will choose to trade and to continue their retreat to rand all right thanks for taking us through all the. cost of our live in the program the spokesperson for the german government called on iran to avoid taking any aggressive steps our correspondent peter all over takes a look at the tight bind the e.u. signatories now find themselves in. a lot of eyes are on the e.u. and european signatories to the saran deal right now to see what they're going to do next are they. going to side with their nato ally the united states or are they going to stick with iran who they've been very vocal in support of since in particularly since the u.s. pulled out of this deal but also in the lead up to getting the deal done there was
8:07 am
an awful lot of work put in by the e.u. side federica mockery only the high representative for foreign affairs saw this project as a particular personal achievement and she was quite visibly upset when the united states pulled out will be looking to see what comment she gives a or if any later on what we have seen though is a comment on wednesday from the french defense ministry they said that should iran do essentially what they've said they're going to do and pull out of the deal was the worst case scenario for all involved. today nothing could be worse than iran leave in the agreement there are new sanctions today from europe because iran has so far all respected the commitments it has undertaken this commitments are not respected the question of do we consider it. well there has been a lot of the warm words they mention from the e.u. side to iran saying don't worry we've got you despite the u.s.
8:08 am
pulling out but a lot of the problems come not from the political side the diplomatic side comes down to the well the brass tacks of cash in business because when the u.s. pulled out of the deal they said any business is doing trade with iran well you could be eligible for sanctions and we would put those sanctions on you so that saw an exodus really of e.u. business that it got involved with the run we've seen the likes of tal the french. oil giant saying that they were going to pull out of the w. daimler car manufacturers saying that this well as well as airbus the aerospace giant in response to that trying to get these businesses to stay at the beginning of this year we heard from the european union that france germany and the united kingdom had said that they were going to set up a payment system to get around the u.s. dollar and shield companies essentially from u.s. sanctions now this system called instead the instill the instrument for support of
8:09 am
trade exchanges if you want to know what it stands for since it's been settled hasn't really done anything and the u.s. side of said one of the reasons it really hasn't done anything is it doesn't have the correct international standards in place to protect against money laundering or financing for terrorism and what the u.s. is saying is it particularly doesn't help protect against money going to the iranian revolutionary guard corps or the i r g c and they said that wasn't acceptable for the united states i question how that even remotely possible with a country like iran where the revolutionary guard corps to sell endemic within the economy but also hidden in many different respects so the ball very much in the european union's caught the choices they have are they walk away from the iran nuclear deal if they try and put kate the united states. as they've tried in the past the big question for the year right now what do they do next because all eyes
8:10 am
are focused on them. peter over three so the big queries there let's try go through some of them go live to beirut swer political analyst stephen sahu knee is standing by stephen welcome to the program how likely is it about the european union will be able and indeed to willing to renegotiate the terms of the deal and shield around from american sanctions. today the european union is the only side has good relations with the two with the united states and the. republic of iran and they are the only side who can redo this negotiation and redo this deal and get america back into this deal because who pulled out and who broke this deal is the united states not yet on the united nations and the european union and the russians and the chinese they all said that the islamic republic of iran did their side of the deal did not
8:11 am
a big their side of the who's doing detention and decision and who's breaking who broke this deal. number one is the united states but they're doing it also under the pressure of the israeli occupation under the orders of prime minister binyamin netanyahu so the only side interests world who has a good relationship with iran and washington is the european union and they're going to do their best because the canonical interests for european union to do a deal to do business deals with your opinions it's big it's a huge numbers we're talking about billions of dollars between the two sides and european union does not want to does not want to do that chance just because the united states they want to pull out just to please dia the israeli prime minister what about the us than say. then how high are they going to react to today's developments is there any chance that even the prospect of a nuclear armed iran where thank you very much in the future here of course could
8:12 am
bring washington back to the negotiating table. the only way to bring. the united states washington to the table is if the two sides they keep. the two sides this see that the regent is the on the doors of war because no one wants the war not the americans have interest in or another they are indians so the two sides are going to keep doing. either politically or militarily from the two sides and till they get to a point that they need to sit on the table they are in use they're not going to step down and they're in use they're not going to just say yes for any american deal there are any and they have their professionally in there for foreign policy in having long range negotiation talk and also they have patience. was this kind of a crisis so the only way to bring down to bring them out today negotiating
8:13 am
is keep escalating or until they keep waiting time and till the next but it's an election in the united states and trump gets out and a new person comes in who will have an idea and who wants to sit on the table and do negotiating ok not do once war in the region just briefly if you will what are the chances that runs the city. on its commitments will box fire risk of a ploy is this code the deal actually collapse here. we might get upset but. that's why the audience are doing. under so much pressure because of the americans they need to they need to read the plight and this is the only way to reply they are the americans they're doing the canonical sanctions on them there are doing everything they can putting warships on their
8:14 am
borders there so this is the only way to reapply to do united states and to reply to to them it's by pulling out of some of the points of this new goal sheet of this said it might backfire and might lead the whole region to a war but in the end i think it's going to be the two sides are going to sit on to the table but after and a few months after after time stephen thanks very much for your time and your thoughts this hour live in various political analyst stephen suddenly you're welcome. moving on to more. today in the wake of sure like as devastating easter sunday bombings the government tells expelled iran six hundred foreign nationals including two hundred muslim clerics fun to have overstayed their visas the country's home affairs minister saying comes as part of a broader push to tighten immigration controls. considering the current situation in the country we have reviewed the visa system and taken
8:15 am
a decision to tighten visa restrictions for religious teaches of those who ascends out about two hundred ways lamb it preaches there are religious institutions which have been getting in foreign preaches for decades we have no issues with them but there are some which mushroom driessen really we will pay more attention to them just to recap that deadly day for sunday's coordinated bomb attacks in turkey like a left over two hundred fifty people dead eight explosions in all tore through poc churches and luxury hotels a state of emergency was imposed shortly after and security forces given sweeping powers to arrest suspect. a lot of thinking and we heard
8:16 am
a loud bang and we fainted and that's all i remember. i wish to express my heartfelt solidarity with the christian community affected one it was a prayer with all the victims of such cruel violence. this past sunday dozens of vehicles homes owned by members of the muslim community were attacked in the western coastal city of at least three people injured on several arrests subsequently a security there has been bolstered and a curfew imposed government is renewing calls for unity and has offered compensation to those affected by the latest violence but it will expert roger and social commentator mo ansari give us their thoughts on the volatile situation in
8:17 am
the country right now on. the claims were that twelve days before the the attacks the government was sent detailed warnings the intelligence service of sent detailed warnings they were told they were going to be attacking a church is that a. radical group home grown natives who were going to terrorize and attack people on easter morning should be sent to really didn't have much choice other than to expel six hundred six hundred foreigners and two hundred dislodgement clerics to cover his own shortcomings i think when you have a state of emergency that is a direct result of you know coordinated terrorist attacks in forcing the law. for those who've overstayed their visas a minimum you can do because that's the bottom line here we need to stop terror we need to stop radicalization if there are one hundred terrorists there expanding foreigners doesn't help somebody clamping down on foreigners and listen asking women to lose their that make up the face veil is actually a disproportionate action and is specifically targeting muslims not the kind in the
8:18 am
sense that did the attack calling this a knee jerk reaction i think is minimizing a very coordinated attack done by radical muslims now how this done been done by a christian for example i would be the first condemning them so i think that moderate muslims shouldn't have to fear what's happening you know if you are involved in a story hatred in planning terrorist attacks and then the thing of that nature then you should be concerned you should be expelled and then again if this is an issue of a government simply expelling people who have overstayed their visa then i don't see this is a kneejerk reaction there just executing their laws. i'm sure out of the six hundred people not all of them or muslim who are expelled i think this is this is a tactic whenever anyone speaks up against rising islam but there are labeled as islamophobia and i do believe in religious freedom i think religious freedom is doesn't read the lebanese it's not good for modern as an advocate for cancer just some fake why haven't the sri lankans been behaving why do they allow these things
8:19 am
to go ahead these are a big questions answered that is not remove the face files exclude six hundred foreign as and two hundred islamic clerics they would never the problem this is about a proportionate response all your years i barely see or expelling six hundred million for little or nothing because their needs are money action to three hundred fifty dead five hundred injured this isn't just about one or two homegrown islamic terrorists this is about a chain of individuals who orchestrated a attacks within a very short enough and which kills many many doing this and east are more sophisticated they're suggesting have overstayed visas to do with east to terror attacks when it was i assure lanka native home. grown who himself was radicalizing people well if you have two hundred if you have two hundred clerics overstaying their welcome then being homegrown might mean that they were in one of those mosques with one of those two hundred clerics we don't know that. we keep the news rolling here in our to international right after this.

employees claimed they were subjected to moral and psychological harassment all in a bid to make leave the company that was undergoing major restructuring. we will ensure that this trial is not only an opportunity to convict for institutional moral harassment which will lead to compensation for the moral prejudice of the victims but we will also fight to have the question again about the violence that was perpetrated not on dozens but on the thousands and thousands of employees at that time and french telecom. that climate described by some as being a brutal is said to have pushed thirty five workers to take their own lives between two thousand and eight and two thousand and nine one a thirty two year old woman threw herself from her office window at the paris stage to another a fifty seven year old set himself alight in a company car park twelve more attempted to take their own lives including beatrice

county it was young and i have been in the state of survival for more than ten years especially after my desperate gesture on a twenty six to eleven. on the same day as my colleague from board who set himself on fire. a long way to their day in court has finally come in senior executives past and present and now facing charges mainly related to moral harassment organized at the company's leadership level while the company doesn't don't know why the suffering of employees does deny having implemented a policy designed to destabilise teams charges if proven could result in a year in prison and a fine of fifteen. a point that is the victims and their loved ones were going to regret the slaughter has not been used in view of the damage suffered by the victims what they have experienced and also view of the low penalties

incurred this also could this trial could open old wounds. what do we expect from this trial to try and understand why why they push people over the edge and it mustn't happen again somewhere else but we can't accept that a dog. farmer kills himself because of a job and people need to understand that human beings are more important. today orange points out that internal surveys show that eighty eight percent of employees say they are proud to work with a company that compares to only thirty eight percent back in two thousand and ten but the many full my employees the dog days are not yet to. see paris. claim responsibility for weapons these large car bomb blasts in the capital fifteen people reportedly injured in the

8:26 am
political here's the number one disagreement what system of government does the united states have now according to the democrats the usa is a democracy and according to the republicans the usa is you guessed it a republic however some say that there could be common ground between the two terms the debate really isn't about whether a republic or a democracy but understanding that we can be both in michigan the republicans did not like the social studies curriculum it is biased in a very left leaning way and i find that problematic so they made a few changes first of all they reduced references to the ku klux klan and the national association for the advancement of colored people they reduced gay and lesbian content and they cut out climate change completely so the democrats tried to slip in a few changes of their own and that draft got the republicans fired up when i look at the things changed between drafts after hundreds of hours of debate it's mind numbing it's not just happening in michigan the standards set by texas and
8:27 am
california the two biggest u.s. states are the most influential when it comes to the printing of the u.s. school textbooks and both states are getting pretty partisan when it comes to u.s. history and social studies in texas they have cut hillary clinton completely out of history and in california a mural depicting george washington the first us president was also a slave owner has been taken down so parents it seems are voting for which historical narrative they want their kids to learn in school when they picked the school board at this point in california the debate has gotten so heated that an empathy tent has been set up near the debating site there are some folks who have lots of opinions and these seem to be making some noises about it we find that listening is better than shouting back in one. hundred seventy four west virginia residents who thought that the school textbooks were offensive to evangelical christians got rather fired up there were bombings and shootings coal miners went out on strike for most american social studies classes are
8:28 am
a distant childhood memory not a burning political controversy however and twenty nineteen it seems like everything is getting political including the classroom it's had been the ole over the country because every school district has an school board that's democratically elected and they go back and forth if they're if it's a really conservative community or a really liberal community then it's fairly stable but it doesn't really reflect what the other you know the minority groups there are that can't elect a school board not manage a national curriculum like you have in say sweden or france or germany or england it means that a kid growing up in texas learns different things and reads different books in literature classes than it kid growing up in california or new york the publishing industry they are concerned about only two states when it's texas and the which is fairly conservative and one is california which is fairly liberal if the textbooks too conservative california school districts won't buy them we have
