turkish government is that there has been some success on the ground because are the gun could be really referring to individuals leaving instead of groups as a whole because the turkish policy has been the strategy has been to try to peel away the rank and file of these radek so-called radical groups and isolate the hard core elements because within the groups like a especially the sham there are divisions the leadership for example is mainly made up of foreign fighters the rank and file they are syrians syrians where are they going to go for them it would make much more sense to lay down their arms so the turkish government has been trying to persuade them using dialogue but after the same time they are threatening military action they have a plan in place what we understand and they will be using the so-called moderate opposition rebels and if that doesn't work the turkish intelligence is on the ground ready to take action so the turkish government really is bent on implementing this deal we heard from the turkish presidential spokesman a few days ago saying no obstacle is going to stand in our way ok santa many thanks

4:14 pm
a national election or a new vote which could include a choice of not leaving europe at all and they first see all those fever there was no doubting which way the vote was going to go. gradually it seems the time it is turning we knew already that the e.u. leaders would definitely extend the article fifty process if we were to have. a face on the deal or indeed general election they wouldn't interfere in the democratic process and make the line during that time so really that's not a worry what we need to do is to make sure that we do have that option so that it's the people of this country having the final say and not just a few politicians most labor m.p.'s who support breck's that haven't turned up this week and they worry that a u.-turn could alienate their own constituents who voted to leave this veteran looked suddenly like a stranger in his own policy when seventeen in the million people vote we know that cameron told you

jared was the first patients at the mayo clinic in the united states to have an electrical stimulation device implanted near his damaged spinal cord. spinal injuries disrupt nerve paths that normally allow the brain to signal the legs to move in this study doctors implanted an electrical stimulator at the base of the spine between the vertebrae and spinal column when it's turned on the electrical signals appear to awaken those injured nerve pathways letting the brain communicate with the legs once again. after months of intense therapy jared can move back and forth a report on his progress has been published in nature medicine. because we were able to stimulate the rec plea the spinal cord itself and we believe that that was very important to be able to regain volitional control or voluntary control jared's road to recovery has not been easy but he credits a woman he met after his accident for giving him the strength to fight were going

4:19 pm
general assembly trying to push his america first agenda was french. global corporation iran was the targets of trump's harshest criticism at the u.n. you call the government in tehran a corrupt dictatorship iranian president hassan rouhani head back accusing washington of economic terrorism iran's leaders so chaos death and destruction. they do not respect their neighbors or borders or the sovereign rights of nations. instead iran's leaders plunder the nation's resources. to enrich themselves and to spread mayhem across the middle east and far beyond. the government of the us at least the current administration seems determined to render all international institutions ineffectual unlawful unilateral sanctions in
4:20 pm
themselves constitute a form of economic terrorism and a breach of the right to development the economic war the us has initiated under the rubric of new sanctions not only targets the iranian people but also entails harmful repercussions for the people of other countries. the united nations is proposing new peace talks on yemen discussions were called off two weeks ago when the huth the rebels were unable to attend on the ground millions remain on the brink of famine and parents are struggling to get the help they need for children so it is present. radical groups have begun withdrawing from the. province has been created to separate opposition fighters and government forces the chinese says that has been arrested in chicago on charges of spying on behalf of beijing friends seven year old child ciarán is a queen accused of trying to recruit american engineers and scientists and even defense contractors to work for the chinese government she faces up to ten years in
4:21 pm
prison if convicted u.s. intelligence agencies have accused china of a super aggressive spying campaign against washington. state not with all the headlines we're back with more news on al-jazeera of the inside story. that is a perfect formula for authoritarianism and here let me ask you straight up here is the two state solution now the lights are on and there's no way it's high up front for times. sidestepping u.s. sanctions to european union goes ahead with a new payment system for business transactions with iran russia and china say bear arms that can companies and traders withstand the u.s. response this is inside story.
4:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program on this of the peron i'm well it was signed in two thousand and fifteen the iran nuclear agreement was hailed as a landmark deal but would the u.s. withdrawal earlier this year and threats of punishing those who do business with head on european leaders have been left trying to figure out a way to protect their companies and save the agreement the trumpet ministrations says it will reimpose some of its toughest sanctions on iran in the van and that's led some companies to abandon their plans and iran but the europeans say this setting up a new payment mechanism that will allow companies to continue trading goods and or of with iran russia and china support the plan but it's not clear how work will discuss that with our guests in a moment but first she held her tongue as he sets up discussion from the un general assembly in new york. the e.u. was reported to have been discussing what it calls a special purpose vehicle for several weeks and monday night the e.u.
4:23 pm
foreign policy chief said it would be going ahead e.u. member states will set up a legal entity to facilitate to make financial transactions with it on and this will allow european companies to continue to trade with it on in accordance with european union low and could be open to other partners in the what the plans discussed in the past have involved an entity being set up to act as a go between or clearing house which we know iran and other nations to facilitate commercial transactions for example if a country or company wants to buy iranian oil it would send money to or perhaps engage in a barter system involving this entity which will handle the transaction with iran the same were true in reverse for iran's dealings with the rest of the world the idea is to bypass commercial and central banks who are fearful of being frozen out of the us financial system if they help circumvent the new sanctions being imposed by the trumpet ministration against iran in the vendor. however the details have
4:24 pm
yet to be worked out and there is some skepticism that the system will work especially given the large number of european companies already cut tailing their business dealings with iran. those meeting at the un also announced that around remained in compliance with the nuclear deal and pledge their commitment to remain participants. the meeting on the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly didn't just involve european foreign ministers but the foreign ministers of russia and china as well meeting with iran coming as it did on the eve before donald trump addresses the u.n. general assembly this was a sign of real international solidarity here in new york she represents the al-jazeera new york. well let's introduce our guests now joining us from paris is remi bojo an economist at the french institute of international and strategic affairs and an investment strategist in london as mom or salami an international oil economist and joining us
4:25 pm
on skype from her team and city is christopher balding an analyst on the chinese economy and also a professor at the fulbright university vietnam a very warm welcome to all of you mr boies can the e.u. design a legal shield to protect its companies in iran you know to beat the reach of the u.s. financial system. well there's a political willingness to try something and that's technically feasible to set up the mccann is him. twere does not. include using a u.s. dollar but even though it's technically feasible it's mainly a political gesture because in the end european companies very much fear the legal consequences in the united states from dealing with iran whatever the sector especially in those sectors which are being targeted by trump said mr trump and
4:26 pm
mr ations the sanctions so it's mostly a political signal sent to iran so that it's my i stay in the nuclear deal but since the end european companies are a very unlikely to return to iran and the regime this current sanctions regime. the only actual possibility was for the negotiates and waivers with the us administration but it was quite clear very early in those stocks that the us administration was not willing to grant any significant exemption from from its sanctions. at this spawn for european companies it's not a real a real prospect shoot shoot to return to iran most of them announced very fast off the donald trump's announcement that they would with throw from iran so there is
4:27 pm
some interest in that kind of mccann is him outside my rubble so and countries like india yeah let's talk a lot on that but i want to talk more about the mechanism the different mechanisms that are being proposed is because a political signal might not be enough to keep iran. in the nuclear deal mr salami we don't have the details of what's being called the special purpose vehicle yet but whatever it is going to be. the bodies that are going to be involved will they have to be exempt from doing considerable business in the u.s. for this mechanism to be feasible. it is not difficult at all because iran's iraq oil exports can be paid for by the way you are all. of us avoiding the dollar or what you call the petro dollar another thing is
4:28 pm
that the european union has lowers which protects companies deciding to continue business with iran and that will protect them against us sanctions but above or there is an as third method of two the us banking system and the petro dollar out of which is the petro you one which come bypass completely the petro dollar and allow iran to be paid for its exports in the pet for you or as tentatively a gold the bet through on now accounts for thirty two per cent of the global oil trade so it is a valid as a third of the delegates and it has all sole not only fide basically the
4:29 pm
you are a sanctions on iran well let me put some of those points to christopher bolton is the chinese petro are you on a viable alternative to buying oil from iran you know can it bypassed u.s. sanctions altogether or can the european union can european countries in fact do business buy oil from iran using the euro. willie could it be they could buy any currency they want but but it's completely inaccurate to say that the r. and b. is now a global substitute for the dollar when it comes to the oil trade. what what is being discussed here is that in shanghai the chinese government has set up an oil futures trading platform in china and this has garnered significant trading volume what is very important to note on this is the important part well suppliers are still paid in hard currency so the transaction will take place such that it will be
4:30 pm
denominated in side of china in orem be however if you're on it if saudi arabia if anybody else wants to take that money out of china they have to turn turn it into dollars euros whatever they want and so it's completely inaccurate to say the global oil suppliers can you can get paid in in an r. and b. there is the amount of r. and b. outside of china is is is virtually negligible almost zero in the grand scheme of things but most of all the nice thing is but but but china can buy iranian oil and it's chinese and be right yes but if if iran wants to use that money that that that money that they've been paid they have to turn it into dollars or euros or whatever they want and take it back to tehran as long as they want to use that r. and b. that they have received inside of china they can use that r. and b. inside of china if they want to take that money r. and b.
4:31 pm
out of china it's immediately converted into dollars you know mr boyd how can the european union buy oil from iran using heroes and stead of dollars and buy pos u.s. sanctions that way. well it's theoretically possible but dutch would involve european companies and magic companies and those also most of them aren't even the united states and most you launch european companies are somehow involved with the us companies and that's why they fear so much any any legal suit so that's that's a real issue of their face against not just about choosing which currency you you trade with with iran. the sanctions have really centered on the currency on the dollars international role but it's not just about the still very phrasing of the sanctions has evolved very much over the years and it's
4:32 pm
clearly targeting. companies in a very precise way and for a european company or for many other country which is also doing business with the united states it's very complicated there are clear legal consequences of continuing any operations in iran and what and what are your name though obviously does not protect those companies so what if we leave currency out of this because one of the ideas being proposed as a bottle system mr salami i you know could we see a return of the sort of bottle system that was used during the cold war by moscow where iran and goods and oil exchanged without money changing hands. well let me point out something i am of the opening and and i am convinced that u.s. sanctions on iran will fail miserably and iran will not lose
4:33 pm
a single barrel of oil from its oil exports and that is my reasoning is being asked over five market facts the first fact is that the global the overwhelming majority of the sions with the exception of saudi arabia and possibly. are against the sanctions on iran because iran has not violated the nuclear agreement does second thing as i mentioned and that's the most important one is the petro yuan the petrea one has become a thorn on the side of the united states because it merely pfizer's the day are you a sanctions against iran and provide a third within for it to be paid iran can be good in the pet for you and for any exports it sends to china it can be
4:34 pm
a pig in the euro for an exports to the european union which account for twenty pattison of iranian exports and it can be paid by baht of penetrated with delights of turkey and india if thing is that china is any a position to nullify the entire you a sanction. by buying the whole. exports of iran two point five million barrels a day and below it pay for them in the pit for you on let me hold that point mr ben-ami i don't want to put that point to our china analyst christopher balding is china and that position to buy all of iran's crude oil and would it be willing to do so is that realistic. because my they could buy iran's deeley output of oil that is absolutely accurate chinese oil consumption continues to rise relatively rapidly
4:35 pm
their influence on global price setting is very important however they do not pay in r. and b. if you ron wants to get paid and receive currency in iran it's not the r. and b. it gets when that money leaves china it's converted from r. and b. to dollars euros whatever i do think i agree with your first guest that that currency is largely irrelevant it really has to do with with if a company has business in the united states they face the possibility that they're going to be sanctioned and either going to be denied access to the u.s. market and actual system or whatever and so being able to trade in in a dollar overseas or a euro is is really irrelevant it's the business exposure they would have to the u.s. market or funny i'm a supporter does that bring us back to the point you know that these measures being proposed is can they really challenge u.s.
4:36 pm
financial dominance given that the truth with of u.s. power lies in the global role of the u.s. dollar you know the predominance of the american financial system well that the key thing is that the u.s. administration is unwilling to give any exemption so. if a companies doing business and you know to night it states this current surely affords two to stay in iran in any way it's getting very complicated and the european low is supposed to prevent them from up from accounts for the going to a contract because of u.s. sanctions with the sanction imposed by any thoughts country but india and in a very concrete way there are facing. legal actions from from of the united states and it doesn't even. in answering flame friends at the round of society legal action has the pull out the fallout of the u.s. pulling out of this iran nuclear deal exposes just how vulnerable new rep is to
4:37 pm
being held hostage to the u.s. treasury you know does you need to overcome this well it's very hard to overcome this actually in a technical way it's it's mainly a political issue between europe in iran and between europe and the united states and there's no actual technical trick to it to bypass that it's not just about the dollars international role it's about the intertwining of the u.s. and the european economy and that's why it's so this sanctions are hurting. european companies involvement in iran so so effectively in a way so that it's because any large european company has some interest in the united states it's not just about the dollar and it cannot afford to just sacrifice that to to keep its operations its investment so at exports through to iran running
4:38 pm
and it is of course about politics you too and you know you said at the beginning of the show that this is sending a political signal more than anything else mr salami what do you make of the mess of the timing off the statement from the e.u. and iran you know just before donald trump addresses the u.n. general assembly one and of the said that this is a poke in the eye for trump do you think this is a humiliation for donald trump. it it is a very important statement because the european johan has made it clear from the start of that they will not comply by you as sandwiches because if they were to comply with that it would be the end of the nuclear agreement with iran and they are a key and to preserve that agreement because it's important for world peace and cause he quickly that signals their insistence that they will not comply with
4:39 pm
us it's cereal signal to the american ads that these sanctions are weak and they will not the work and i tell you that the sanctions as i mentioned will fail miserably and the sea european union will continue to deal with. iran bought to to natalie that ninety five per cent of oil exports go to forty groups of countries one is china which accounts for thirty five the other india which accounts for the fed fifty percent then the european union which echoes for twenty past seven better that's a total of seven lights certainly is all very them all of them are against the sanctions against iran but is being against the factions enough mr boulding do you
4:40 pm
think that the message here you know is more important than any details of a financial system by showing that they're working to keep european investment flowing into iran are european leaders hoping that that's enough to keep iran in a nuclear deal. well i think what's what's important to notice is that it is it isn't just the e.u. it's basically the major powers excluding the united states and so the first thing is that sense not just an e.u. message but that sends a very strong political message globally about about the political cover that is being provided i think to follow up on a point you made about how much to details matter i think they matter enormously when they talk about s.p. the any special purpose vehicle and even though we don't have the specifics there are a lot of different ways that you could structure this to make it very very difficult for the united states government to impose sanctions whether it was some type of
4:41 pm
a company that had no no ties to the u.s. financial system or payment systems that was maybe domicile in a in a in a in a unique country so that so that european oil companies could deal with that company and so that they would have plausible deniability as to where the oil was coming from i think there's different ways to do this and i think it's very important it is a very strong political message being sent to it but iran of course can't survive on messages and woods alone vice mr bosio i think it's something like the veil has lost about two thirds of its value the c.s.a of weald policy europe china and russia cannot. grave economic woes well let's say in the nuclear deal that promised it. in anything a function. well it's difficult for the european union to do something about this if european companies are not twinning choo-choo to deal with
4:42 pm
iran and have reason of course to fear our us sanctions. under the current framework so there's little they can do so that descending political messages because of course european governments are very concerned about the consequences for the whole middle eastern region of the disability ation of the iranian system that's one main thing about economy collate there are their actions are likely to remain quite limited so the way things they are now to date some think iran will stay in the nuclear deal the way things are going now the way that things have been going the reaal the economy full sanctions used to be imposed i think on the fourth of november as iran going to stay in the steel. well that iran is under tremendous pressure it's waiting to see how things will evolve whether they will really be no exemption told from from the u.s.
4:43 pm
or so so so few as they've applied but there's clearly also a domestic political issue in the iran between the hardliners and the moderates within the regime that's that's very complicated and the hardliners are emboldened to to some extent the moderates have appeared to be in retreat in terms of the political their political message and importance. does there's little actually to do with has such an pressure and certainly most should you in asia and china as eagerness to to continue importing iranian criticism is certainly of great importance to iraq but it's very complicated in europe's position it is here really find a solution to to iran's difficulties and if it doesn't then mr salaam
4:44 pm
a you know if i know that you're very positive that the iran nuclear deal can stay in place but if it doesn't what message does that send send to donald trump and the world you know that he can unilaterally pull out of a deal when international experts about sharing that iran as sticking by it and the international community can't do anything about it. if iran was forced by circumstances to leave the new york city had a d.d. . is a war in the gulf egged by israel and supported by saudi arabia there is a scary issue between saudi arabia and iran so it's it a war could be sparked by one incident or another and it will lead to the whole me the east and it will be the end of america and national enquirer us in the whole arab gulf coast see it quickly it's but out of that iran it stays and is
4:45 pm
held and brought more to stay with the nuclear deal by sub or from b. of a signal if that is of the deed mr salami thank you very much for that we have run out of time solve it like to thank all of our guests remy born in paris mamba salaam a in london and christopher balding in the men and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website as the adult com and further discussion and to go to our facebook page that facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter a handle is at a.j. and side story for me elizabeth pran him and the entire team here and doha by fanatics.
